TIMES EDITORIALS Let the Truth Prevail I Your Father 9s Son BY REV. W. A. MOORE Pastor First Christian Church. Years ago your father began a tremendously Worth-while task. Believing iv the Bible as the word of the living (lod and in .Icsus as the Christ, the anointed, the Sun of God, he made the good confession and gave bis very life —time, talent and money -to the church for the extension of the kingdom. Years have gone; your father has grown old in Christian service; perhaps he has gone to his reward. You were a boy; now a man. A generation has al most passed. You are dow the MAN of the fainliy; observe your Wife, children, frit .ids, business—and perhaps a few gray hairs. We're not as young as we used to be — nor are our fathers. But is you father's son making good in the church 1 Your father has in his son a good citizen —plain, straight-forward, square. YOUR father's son could hardly be otherwise. But his son must remember that the highesl type of citizen in this country is more than plain, straight-forward and square; he is an out and out Christian—loyal to his God and loyal to the church. Many sons are trying to dodge the responsibility so heartily accepted by their fathers. In this they are not making good. How about YOUR father's son? Your lather's son knew that his city and state to be great must have the church. Being a loyal man loyal both to his God and his fellow men —he gave himself right royally to the support of the church. One hundred prominent business men of our city have had fathers who were loyal to God but who._ sons are trying to satisfy themselves with a citizen ship that leaves out God. The most difficult, and the most worth while task in your city is that of making the church go, grow and glow. Your father did his part. Is his son making good . _very reason that commanded your father's serv ice commands yours. His greatest desire was to see the kingdom of Christ established. Do not permit his greatest desire to fail. Your failure in the social circle, in business, in EVERY THING can not pain him like your failure toward God. Even death of both father and son is prefer able to failure here. Give Christ your whole heart. Keep God in mind. Command that your father's son make good in the church. Life is short. TO MAKE SMS CLE AII Don't worry about skin trou bles. You can have a clear, clean complexion by using a little zemo, obtained at any drug store for lis, or extra large bottle at film. Zemo easily removes all traces of pimples, black heads, eczemii, and ringworm and tnukes the nkln clear and healthy. Zemo is nei ther watery, sticky nor greasy and statns nothing. It Is easily applied and costs a mere trifle for each application. It is always dependable. Zemo, Cleveland. It's Easy To Save If you will only adopt a systematic method of doing It. How much Isn't as Important as the regularity of It. Don't forget — "It's what yon save that you don't have to work for." Tacoma Savings Bank & Trust Co. Pacific Aye. at llth. 4% on Havings.

Gasoline and Tires Solomon in all his glory never got off anything wiser than this, by Hugh Chalmers, auto builder: "It is not the man contemplating purchasing a ma chine who thinks of gasoline so much as it is the man who has had a car for some time." Exactly! The would-be purchaser never gives two little thinks to the gasoline, or the oil, or the grease, or the tires, or the tubes, or any other of the details. He just stands there looking at the beautiful glossy machine, with itw power to go 29 miles on a gallon of gas, and quail of oil aud its tires guaran teen to use up 19,542 miles of road, and thinks and thinks about flying In comfort across the scenery, his family nicely tucked in upon the upholstered seats and the neighbors chrome yellow with envy. Verily, it is the man who has had a car for some time who thinks of gasoline, etc., etc., etc., and his thinker is well greased by expel _ence.

J. h Q. —Will you please tell me how to remove old varnish from furniture? A. J. A. A.— A firm of English manufacturers have discovered that cer tain vegetable fatty adds liave the pi-o|>< . t> of softening and remov ing hardened paints and varnish, reports the "Chemist anil Drug gist,'* and thai Uiis property is greatly Increased In co-operation with the solvent proi>ertles of already well-known solvents. It Is mixed in various ways: .rachie acid, 18 pn|-ls; benzine, lii parts; methyl alcohol, 40 parts. Mix and apply to the varnished surface and wipe off with a soft cloth as varnish dissolves. Q. —We are two girls, 17 years of age, and have to make our own way in the world. As we have no one else to ask, we would like you to give us your opinion on the following: Wa live in a two-room apartment and we should like to know whether or not it Is proper for us to entertain our boy friends In the kitchen or In our other room which is used as a dining room and bedroom both?

Q. —What is the meaning of "riders" when used in a leg islative sense? C. V. A.—Kldera ln national or state legislation are the additional provisions of a bill under the consideration of a legislative assembly, having little connection with the subject-matter of the bill. Home time, rider, are attached to Important bills, In order to gain the ih_.ni-.- of passage, since by themselves they are likely to Incur an executive veto, but aa a part of proviso of an Important bill they arc absorbed in the main subject, and so dodge tlie "veto" and the "table.'» It has been proi-osed frequently that the t-oiiMtltution of the I'nited States be so amended that the in-eslileiit could veto single objectionable items, without affecting the main purpose of hills. . .

CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE THE WAIL OF A PAIN-KAOKUD BODY I stopped reading Mary's letter right where ahe said she was afraid, for Dick came for his daily visit to tne. He bent over my bed and kiss ed my cheek lightly and said, Will, my dear, I have at laat got things straightened out at the book concern, and, Margie, we are almost rich." "But you do feel well, don't you Dick?" I said somewhat ap prehensively, for he looked very worn and tired. "Yea, 1 am feeling very well. What I meant was that by t in. terms of the will, you know, it will take me about ten years to get this thing straightened out so that if anything happened to me you would be perfectly Inde pendent, and I want to live at least that long. "How are you feeling, Margie? How Is the leg." "I gueas It Is all right, Dick, but 1 feel terribly to be a stick lying here while you are working so hard. I am not even a good chum, let alone a wife." "We won't discus* that, my dear," satd Dick Quietly. "All you have got to think about ia about keeping your courage and gettiiig well." "Would It be a terrible thing if I did not get well?" 'Margie, why do you like to torture yourself and me?" "I don't know, Dick, but truly J would much rather die now than be bed-ridden for a long time. When do you think I can go home?" "I don't know that, Margie; you must be patient." "Do you want me home, Dick?" Dick waa silent for a moment, and then he aaid, "1 am not stay ing there." "I was so astonished that I gave my bad leg a terrible wrench and nearly fainted. "I am staying with Jim, Mar gie; I simply could not stay at home without you." "Then you do love me, Dick?" "You dear woman, can't I ever again make you believe that I only love you, that I have never loved anyone but you, and never will love anyone but you? All my foolishness haa nothing to do with loving. Such things have nothing to do with any man's loving." I looked at Dick closely. "Then you think that no married man loves the other woman with whom he has a llason?" "I would not say that, for some men don't love their wives. It is sometimes the wife and sometimes the other woman a man loves, but whichever it is he will keep her in his heart al ways." "And you lovo_mo, Dick?" "Always, dear heart. So much that I have not ceased cursing myself that I have made you suffer." He took me up in fats arms and kissed me. but It was not with the old fervor. I was not sure that he waa afraid to show me or if his ardor had burned Itself out. I wish I knew, little book; I wish I knew. 1 let Dick leave me with a weary good night, and I tried to aleep, but all the while I kept thinking of a poem I read the other day in a newspaper. Life you have bruised me and chilled me; Fate, you have jeered at my pain; Dreams, you have mocked while you thrilled me—so I turn to the battle again. Love, you have blessed me and led me; the lips that have kissed you, you smite; Hope, you have urged me and fled me—but left Is the joy of the . fight! Never was I a coward! Now must I prove my worth. World, I will give you my cour age; not tears, but a hard bought mirth. Work of my hands I grant you, labor and toll of brain, But heart and boul shall be want ing—for they are dead of pain! Forward! A fight to the death, then! Life Is a aorry jest. Ahead! To the thick of tumult! Fate Is a fool at the best. Courage! The war gods are great est! Love la a false, fair light. To arms! For Dreams are frail bubbles, and Hope but a song ln the night. World, I cast down the gauntlet, for you were made to defy! Own me a foe your mettle! Ah, fighting let me die! Love, Hope and Dreams I give you; Life I fling at your feet; I wiU drink to the dregs of the bitter—Jor once I had tasted of sweet! Of one last taunt I shall rob you; stern, I will claim my due; One recompense you shall give me, balm I will snatch from you.
