“JUDGE NOT THAT YE BZ NO7 JUDGED* Some time ago this paper stateh that the Tarpon Springs Leader, one of our weekly exchanges, was edited with consummate ability, so just to give an idea of the force and strength of the editorials appearing from time to time in this excellent publication, we reproduce from it the following which we think will do well for Sun day reading: 3n men whom men condemn as lii, I find so much of goodness still; In men whom men pronounce divine, J find so much of sin and blot, I hesitate to draw the line Between the two, when God has not. —Joaquin Miller. "Did you ever stop to think how ready men are to judge other men? Did you ever notice how ready that portion of the same race which be lieves one thing is to condemn that portion of the same race which be lieves something different? Was your heart ever saddened by the attitude of aloofness and superiority of one of those “holier than thou” individuals who believe himself the incarnation of righteousness and who goes about congratulating himself because of this, while at the same time sorrow- Ctomach TROUBLES I seldom fail to ENTIRELY when you take Tanlac M It builds you up and helps you re gain your normal weight.

If I should sit up late at night Beneath the candle’s gleam, If I should work with all my might A-doping out a scheme, A plan to make by business grow, A thought so crisp and new I wanted all the town to know, I’d print it—wouldn’t you?

Did you ever read the passage in Scripture which says, "Judge not, that ye be not judged”? "By what right, in the face of the admonition “judge not,” can any claim, or even feel in his own heart, that any other man is going to meet with the condemnation of his Maker on that great day of judg ment? When he classifies humans, picking out certain ones whom he believes pleasing in the sight of God, and others whom he believes not to be so, isn’t he himself violating the injunctions of Holy Writ? “And still, this is a thing we see be ing done every day. And the sad part of it is that in far too many cases it is those who claim to have a thor ough knowledge and understanding of Christian teachings, and who profess to be followers of those same teach ings and who hold themselves ready to tell the rest of the world where the dividing line between good and evil lies, who do this judging. "Judge not, that ye be not judged.” , “Is not this a part of Christian teaching? "We would not condemn those who seem to have forgotten this command. We know not what is in their hearts, any more than they know what is in our heart. But we do regret the fact that this part of the Christian teach ing is so frequently ignored, and that by its failure to incorporate itself into the thoughts and acts of those endeavoring to follow in the paths of righteousness, the cause itself is hurt. “How wrongly men are sometimes judged in our courts in matters* of civil concern, where every known means is employed to bring out all the evidence in the case. How much more difficult, then, to know what is in a man’s heart and conscience and so judge him accordingly in respect to the relationship existing between him and his Creator! And even were it possible to know the innermost se crets of other men’s souls, how can any man dare assume sufficient wis dom to permit of his pasing judg ment as to whether or not a particu lar soul is pleasing to its Maker? “Much of the unhappiness and sor- row of the world would be eliminated and the struggle of life made easier if we could bring ourselves up out of the narriw groove of our own thought into the broad light of tolerance and respect for other people’s opinions, knowing that in doing so we are but following one of the most vital com mands ever given man, “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” MEETING OF VETERANS Marion Camp No. 56 J. C. V. met February 7th, 1922. The commander being absent, Col. F. E. Harris was requested to take the chair. Prayer by treasurer B. H. Norris. The following comrads answered to roll call.

LEE The following poem was read by Mrs. A. A. Winer before a recent meet ing of the Daughters of the Confeder acy: When memory opens wide her books, Revealing the pages of yesterday. No name with brighter lustre shines Than that of Robert Lee. Robert Edward Lee. In memory’s temple high. Through brave nad noble deeds you’re placed, Whree your name shall neer die; For you gave the best you had to give, You claimed no honors when You led the way to freedom’s cause And upheld your drooping men. You never faltered, neer lagged. And never was known to fear. Your ready hand was firm as steel When war cries filled the air; And in the tragic sceneg at Appomat tox, When the flag we love was furled. Records give no firmer stand In the history of a world. “Marse Robert” is asleep—yes— But as lives the soul of Joan of Arc in France, So in the southland lives the soul of Lee, As the months and the years advance. Not dead! Ah, no! Lee cannot die, But ever lives to prove That all he did was just to show His great and mighty love For mankind in their fight for right. To prove himself a friend Who made no compromise with shame But was faithful to the end. War weary? Oh! we know you were, And yet you knew the power Of Gods great eternal love Would keep the trying hour; And you would yet find recompense For all you’d lost in war. And find that only duty done Could place you where you are. Full well you chose the better part And though wrought in bitter tears. The deeds you did will live on earth Beyond the reach of years And ever go on and on Even unto the perfect day, Until you hear the welcome words: Youve won the right to stay. Oh, Richmond, guard well the sacred dust Of him whose anniversary we keep In lasting reverance and love, i. ntil we, too, shall fall asleep; So in memorys bright and lasting vase w e place a floweret rare. Proclaim him still our beloved chief And breathe for him a praver. SARAH BANKS WEAVER. Miami, Florida.
