If you Were suddenly called upon to nnswor Hint question, what would your nnswor bo? "Because it is tlio proper thing to do," some might suy. Hut why is it t ho proper thing? The wistlom of ?11 of the ages combined could not give nn answer that would do justice to tho subject. The wisdom of nil of the nges to come will not answer tho question us it should be answered, The life we enjoy, the intolli" gOUCO We possess, the food we out, the clothing we wear, all that we have on this earth and nil that we ever hope to have is dependent upon the will of the Creator. Every step wo take, every word we utter, every thought that finds lodgment in our brain?these and all other things are known to Hun who made us and who will judge us when the breath of life leaves our oarlltlv clay. Hod endowed tin with Intelli? gence that we might work out our own destinioB. He culls His servants to the ministry that they may point out to us the glories of paradise und the agonies of eternal per? dition. The voice of Opt! plOUlls with us through them, that life ever? lasting may bo ours, hut the di? vine hand will not slay our steps if we choose to repudiate the debt that we owu 10 our Muker. The church is not essential to the worship of Ood. The true Christian needs no edifice in or? der to commune with divinity. Ood follows us on our journeys, He in with us in our homes, in our oillces, in the factory and the field ?wherever wo are, He also is there, silently leaching out His arms nnd pleading with us to embrace the holy cause that removes nil of the fear and Utillg of death. The church is His school house and the Bible is His text hook. The minister is His teacher and we nie Iiis pupils. The public school buildings are used for (ho secular eiiuca tioa of oar children, that they may have success, happiness und contentment iu this life The church is for the spiritual education of our children and of ourselves, that we may enjoy the transcendent blessings of that higher life yet to come. In the theater or upon the athletic field we find relaxation from our daily toil. In the church we acquire the sublime knowledge and faith '.hat en? ables us to properly enjoy the relaxations our earthly bodies ciuve. Every normal mind seeks worldly knowledge. That is not difficult to acquire. Ev. cry norinul mind should also imbibe spiritual knowledge. That is less difficult to acquire. It is even free?is urged upon us without price or condition of acceptance. Worldly know, ledge aids in removing the ob? stacles which beset our pathway in this life?which is short. Spiritual knowledge prepares our hearts for that greater life? which never ends. Ail of these tilings we learn iu the church, the schoolhouse of Uod, through the minister and his aids, who are but the humble servants and mouth? pieces of Ood?that Ood with OUt whose sanction we would Police Officer Killed Bootlegger at Stonega Saturday Night. Kd Franks was shot and killed l>y Police Officer Ilarvo Oress nt Stonega on last Saturday night when the officers attempted to arrest hint. About 10 :00 o'clock that night word was brought to Chief Col? lier that Franks and Knock Cod? dle had arrived from Kentucky with a load of moonshine. Ac? companied by Assistant Police? man Cress, and Night Watch? man .1 i in Morrison, of the Stonega Company, Mr. Collier proceeded to tho tipper end whera he arriv? ed just in tiino to find the boot loggers leaving the home of Mike Smith. Policeman .Cress immediately stepped ill front of Franks and quietly asked tho two men to gurrender. Collier was behind Coddle. When Cress spnke, both Franks and Coddle grabbed for their revolvers. Coddle suc? ceeded in getting his from the hoNtei bill wus prevented from using it by Chief Collier, who grabbed Iiis arm from behind. The fact thill Franks carried n huge If) Service Coll is probiib ably all that saved Mr. Cress. The great length and weight of the revolver gave Cress lite ad? vantage of about two seconds. Franks had just removed the gull from the bolster when the officer beat hi III to the draw. The huge Colt dropped from his hand as the officer Bred tho fatal shot. When (lliiof Collier grabbed Coddle's arm as the men met he fotilld his hands full. They fell to the rbad, lighting silently. Collier trying to take I ho revol? ver from the Kcntiickian. To save his OWIl life he clubbed Coddle with the butt of his gun, knocking him senseless. baler Coddle led the officers lo the homo of Mike Smith, n Slav laborer, where ton gallons of moonshine was found. Smith had paid Franks .* 1 o per gallon for the liquor. lie was placed under arrest, but Inter gave bond and was released. Coddle was brought to l?g Stone Cap and lodged in jail for safe keeping. The moonshine hud been brought from Kentucky on horse hack. At t he fool of the 11)011 it lain, the men had tied their mounts a nil proceeded by fool to Mike's wlu-re the trade was made. not live another day, or hour, or minute. Inadequate as our answer may he, in it not sufficient for your (to to church Sunday f Value ol An Education. The people in later years seem to lime rent!/,si mere fully than in the past, the value of an education. However a large |?'r cent of the st talents who enter the high school drop out before finishing. Especially is this true with the majority Of the boys Thoy !>>.ine discouraged nnd iiuit to accept n Job somewhere which pay-, very little. Examining statistics on tho value of nn education, wo Had u number of inter? esting facts. Education may in) valued in terms of money. Positions demanding only read? ing nnd writing |siy only JUS-.' yearly. Those demanding a high school educa? tion |W>- |KW yearly mill those demand Inga college education |siy $2100 ivr year. One can easily tied that it would pay to continue, his education thru the college rather than to stop at the high school, Education Is no! valued by the go at business men in terms of money l,ul by the service that it enables one to do, li is estimated that of live million people with lioschooling, only thirty -Olli? attain distinction and of thirty-throe million with elementary education sos attain distinction. Of two million with a high school education 1215 attain dis? tinction and of ou>-million college trainee meno.lOtt attain distinction Thus th? child with no schooling has one chance in 184,000 of performing distinguished sen n e with elementary education ho has. four times the chance; with higli school education hi Umos the chance and with a obliege education tw times the chance. It U also estimated that less than one per cent of American men are college graduates Yet but of this coins .vw of our presidents Out of th,i ?II United States Senators ito an; college graduates. We have this year tho largest gradua? tion class in the history of our school, In view of what we Iiavo just mid about the value of a high ach'ool education this U very gratifying.
