We regret very much to say that we haven't any pastor at Woodland Baptist Church, Rev. Stigler having resigned to enter a field in Oklahoma. The physicians advised him to change climate on account of his wife's health. We regret very much to give him up, but our loss is the other church's gain. Crops are in very fine condition though a little shower would do some good at present. Farmers are busy 1 r.a t!:o wheat, hay and corn are all needing them at the same time. Quite a number of our teachers have gone to Memphis and Martin to attend the summer schools prepara tory to be the more able to give sat isfaction In the next year's work Some think the wheat crop will be a better yield in general than last year. ' Rev.House, of Jackson, will preach a trial sermon at the Baptist Church at Woodland the third Sunday In June. Be sure to hear him.

Ezra 5:7, 7:12. Greetings to all In Jesus' precious name from the city of THE GREAT KING; praise His holy name. This is a very holy city now re ligiously speaking, for last Friday was the Mohammedan Sunday us well as a noted Sunday. All the Moham medans begin a holy pilgrimage, go ing to visit the holy places of their book, the Koran, which can be se cured from Wanamaker's depart ment store, Philadelphia and New York, and Fleming H. Revel, Chica go, for about seventy-five cents. (Sales translation is the best.) They marched into Jerusalem with green i (Mohammed, the prophet of Moslems' color) and .each supposed descendant of Mohammed Wears a green band called a "leffle" around his tarboosh, a brimless flat-topped round red captor hat. They. have many other colored flags and march in as the old Confederate soldiers do, singing, clapping nands ana cymbals and shouting "This is our land; we for our country?" and cursing the Jews as they come in sight. - ut the Jews, the most peaceable people on earth,, close their shops and remain out of sight, for year be fore last at oha Easter, the 1 Jews' Passover andiSohammedah ' Nebby Musa, tomb of Prophet Moses, tU9 Mohammedans, finding the English government was not protecting the city or expecting trouble, began kill ing poor old Jews within the city walls and soldiers coming would, not allow the young Jews from outside to enter the gates, and many Jews were killed (about twenty) and over two hundred wounded. Last year at Joffa fifty Jews were killed and two hun dred wounded, and last September at Damascus Gate there was a fight in which five Jews were killed and sev eral wounded. The Christians (so called Catholics) also bitterly hate the Jews and are Joining with the Mohammedans and causing God's wrath to fall upon th,em soon. will curse them that curse thee." Gen. 12:3. ( . - After marching into the city with cannons and machine guns mounted on automobiles and pointfng at them from every gate of entrance, and heavily armed English soldiers on the walls and mounted on horses riding in the parade and on foot mingling with them and going before and be hind, they go through the narrow streets to the Mosque of Omah, built on the grounds of the Temple of Sol omon and Herod's .Temple In the time of Christ, who said that not a stone should be left but that all should be torn down, which was fulfilled in A.D. 70, when Vitus, the Roman gen eral gave the charge and his soldiers scaled the wall, killing over a mil lion Jews, ripping up the Vomen with child. After a service at the Mosque of Aska, where all services are held (the Mosque of Omah, built over the dome of Rock Moriah, where Abraham of fered up Isaac, is too sacred for serv ices and visitors must take off their shoes or put sandals over them as they go in to see the building and Rock Moriah) between twelve and three o'clock they march out at Ste ven's Gate, on the east, cross the Brook Kedron, pass Gethsemane, go around Mount Olive to the south, pass Bethany, where Mary, Martha and Lazarus lived, and where Jesus raised Lazarus from the grave where he had lain four days. Martha said, "By this time he stinketh." Mary be lieved she should see the glory of God manifest there. Martha was for put ting it off until the resurrection day, but Jesus called for Mary and found the one who sat at His feet, believed and said, Come forth Lazarus," and he came and Jesus is the same yes terday, to-day and forever. Then on down the Jericho, road they go, singing, dancing, shouting like our Indian war whoops, past the Good Samaritan Inn, and in about six hours they land at the Moham medans' Tomb of Moses, which is be tween six and ten miles south of Jer icho and twelve miles west of the Jordan River, but if you will read the last chapter of Deuteronomy, the Fifth Book, of Moses and the Bible, wou will see that his tomb is about' twelve miles beyond the Jordan Riv er on the east in a valley near Mount Nebo and Pisgah Heights. But the Mohammedans say that was where the devil came to Moses and said, "The Lord has turned you over to me, and I am going to kill you," but Moses. He said, "Yes, I know I am to die, but let us pray first. Let us close our eyes while I pray silently. The devil did so, and put his hands oyer his eyes. He wait ed a long time and got restless and decided he would peep through - his fingers and see what Moses was doing praying so long. So, behold, he saw no one. He arose quickly and looked around and saw Moses runing toward the Jordan. He gave chase and caught Moses twelve miles across the Jordan River and killed him, and there the Mohammedans, who make the places and invent the story to fit, built a large white tomb of rocks over this spot and each year go there and stay a week setting holy and come marching back to Jerusalem singing threats and curses upon the Jews, But soon oh, very soon their blood will flow like a river up to the horse's bridle as God thunders His great and terrible judgments upon all who hate his chosen people an imperishable race who will soon become the great est nation on earth, ruling under Je sus,' whose kingdom and throne win be in Zion, the perfection of beauty and "Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion on the sides of the Worth." "I will place salvation in Zion for Israel, my glo ry." Isaiah 46:13. "Israel shall be saved in the" Lord with an everlasting salvation; ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end." Isaiah 45:17 and Isa. 41:11. "Behold,, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded. They shall be as nothing and they that strive with thee sha.ll perish. Thou shalt soek them and shall not find them, even them that contend with thee. They that were against thee shall be as nothing end as a thing of nought. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee." Psa. 22:6. May God bless you, keep you, heal you and prosper you. Your brother in Christ's great love for lost souls, and 'hastening and looking for His glorious coming any day (I Thes, 4:13-18), with much love for all, pray for PAUL M. JOYNER. Post Resante (which is Gen. Del.) Jerusalem, Palpstine, April 1?., 1922. Earthly Paradise. One reason why persons live longer in Florida than elsewhere is be cause there Is some incentive to live longer. Hardships are not here, nor the discouragements. Nightly freezing and thawing and two feet of mud are tough on the young and entirely too tough on the old. In the north it does not matter much to the aged if they continue to endure such climatic conditions or pass on to paradise. That isn't true here in South Flor ida. Here the aged and the youth ful are living next door to Paradise all the year and natural inducements are so inviting that they create the desire to live just as long as possible to enjoy them. They do not have to be afraid of sunstroke nor freezing, It is impossible to slip on icy walks and break bones. It is equally im possible to swelter. It is perpetual spring, with cackling hens and fresh vegetables in December, bathing and strawberres right from the vines in the back yard in January, in Febru ary bouquets of flowers so lovely that, like Shelly's sensitive plant, they die of thir own dear loveliness. It "Is the same in that respect each luuuiu, seasons come and seasons go, but here is that perpetual balm of spring. Pine woods or Canada contain no more balsamic tdnic than that broadcast on soft winds by the pines of Florida. An early morning start from any part brings either the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico to your feet by middle forenoon a drive through the one big flower gar den of the United States, planted and kept by nature. Odors of wild lan tana with farflung scent of honey suckle, and high in the top of yonder greenest tree open3 the magnificent magnolia bloom. The beauty of all is as its climate, incomparable. It is right next door to Paradise. But man cannot live by nature alone. He must work. Yet where else can he work with so much profit as among these wonderful surround ings where at any season of the year he need but tickle the earth with plow to cause it to burst with fruitful smiles? Fertility of the val ley of the Nile where for ages the known world received' its sustenance n times of famine, never was as pro ductively rich as these virgin lands of South Florida. Here it is that many trees bear fruit even the first year after planting, for growth is continuous. The grower may choose of any crop successfully. He may combine varieties of garden growths. He may grow livestock of any and all kinds, and bees with but the mini mum of effort. It is right next door to Paradise. That is the location of Southern Florida. But here in the vicinity of Lake Worth Is Paradise moved up even a few feet nearer. We have all the flowers and natural beauties of other points, all ,of the vegetation, lakes at the back door and front door, and the ocean a half-mile dis tant.
