Howard Ash, Clerk. | THE MIDLAND JOURNAL, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER I, 193* Our Part in Government TODAY men of all nations are evidencing deep interest in the affairs of their respective gov ernments. This progressive attitude has undoubtedly resulted from the ceaseless, though not always recog nized, influence of the wonderful Christian teaching that In the sight of God all men are equal. This does not mean that every person as a citi zen can have assigned to him a spe cial public duty. However, to every one comes the privilege, as well as the duty, of being a supporter of right government, and this is indeed a high office. To each citizen come opportunities to support a righteous government through intelligent thinking. Through the cultivation and exercise of such qualities of thought as are implied by the words understanding, charity, citizenship, and prayer, the individual can pre pare himself to be a useful citizen In his community. Christian Science enables one to regard these subjects in their true light. As men begin to grasp the truth concerning God’s government, and to prove their understanding by bettering individual thinking, they And themselves willing and ready to accept the responsibilities of useful citizenship. Many opportunities are thus made available by spiritual understanding. This understanding includes intelli gent comprehension, enlightenment, alertness. One who through Chris tian Science seeks to understand his government, its purposes, methods, and aims, has an intelligent stand ard whereby to measure its acts. He is not misled by false propaganda or by personal influence. He casts his ballot on the side of integrity, sound sense, and progress. In this way he rises above the limitations of a merely material sense of government and begins to demonstrate the truth concerning real government; for he has learned the spiritual nature of man as an intelligent son of an all wise God, the perfect Mind. Charity, too, is an open door to opportunities for serving. It may be described as a true sense of love. Charity is the attitude which rejoices in the certainty of the ultimate tri umph of Truth, even when evil seems threatening. To charity, evil is only a deceiving false sense which may be progressively replaced with the true sense of being as spiritual. When charity governs thought, the citizen may look critically upon his govern ment in a helpful way. He may turn the searchlight of critical inspection on the nation’s functionings, and by keeping aglow in his own thought the light of wisdom, fairness, patience, and love he will be able to see not only the errors to be eradicated, but the good already accomplished. Date and Nut Bread HERE’S a new canned product. If you have ever lived, or yisited in Maryland—you have eaten good food. And, no doubt, among many delicious dishes which come from that state, you have eaten that very delicious bread which they call Date and Nut Fruit Loaf, for it is one of those century-old dishes, the recipe for which is handed down from mother to daughter with family pride. Now Available In Cans It will be good news to you, then, if you know what real Maryland date and nut bread is, to know that it is now obtainable in cans. It is packed and baked in vacuum cans, insuring sealed- Jn flavor, so that when the can is OUR BANK SITUATION The depression now would be just fun If the banks would let us have our raon; We have always paid our bills, And added the discount to our thrills. But what’s a poor man going to do When the banks have all our dough? Every time they will tell you We sure will open in a day or two. But time rolls round and the same old tale, With all their promises they keep our kale. It doesn’t help us much, you know, When someone else has spent our dough. We worked so hard for that rainy day And to write a check that your bank won’t pay; It makes us mad and mad clean thru To be barred from spending our hard-earned dough. i Many doors to service are opened . by the qualities expressed in the word “citizenship.” Citizenship, as away | of living, has to, do with such oppor -1 tunities as come to the thinker In 1 the usual walks of life, In the home, p the school, or the shop. Citizenship means bringing to bear upon these ' activities the influence of a high 1 idealism. It means practicing Jesus’ ■ Golden Rule, "Ail things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." For the stu ; dent of Christian Science to be ai good citizen he must practice the truth discovered and founded by ! Mary Baker Eddy. That this religion 1 is the Science of Jesus’ teachings has been proved many times by the works which its students have done and are doing through the spiritual under standing of God’B law. He who prac tices Christian Science, in ways small or great, is well prepared to take his place as a servant of mankind. Speak-' ing of "a knowledge of the Science, of being,” Mrs. Eddy says in “Set-, ence and Health with Key to the Scriptures” (p. 12S), "It raises the thinker into his native air of insight and perspicacity.” Surely, one so equipped can furnish strong support! , to the right activities of civic gov-i ernment. The doorway to the high est service is opened through the power for good in true prayer. Prayer ! founds thought on the divinely sub stantial Rock, Christ, the true idea of God, the strong foundation for the superstructure of harmonious living. True prayer avails, and the Christian Scientist learns to pray availingly not alone for the good of himself, but for the whole world.' In Christian Science, prayer is fervent, reverent aspiration; it is spiritual vision. Prayer is that mental attitude which rests on the conviction that God, Love, is the only cause and cre ator, and that every real effect is Godlike. Prayer breaks the mesmer ism of befogging material sense, and through the mists it reveals God’s man, governed by God. Through prayer consciousness is filled with the holy facts of being; greed is re placed with unselfed love, hatred with brotherhood, lust with peace, and ignorance with wisdom. "Are we benefited by praying?" asks Mrs. Eddy on page 2 of Science and Health; and her immediate answer is, "Yes, the desire which goes forth hungering after righteous ness is blessed of our Father, and it does not return unto us void.” As men universally learn so to pray, the mental atmosphere of the whole world will be suffused with loving kindness, and all can then echo the angelic rejoicing, recorded by the Revelator, “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he ; shall reign for ever and ever.” —The Christian Science Monitor. open the bread is as fresh and J delicious as if it had just come □ from the Maryland oven, and it can even be kept in the refrigera tor for a period of ten days. Would you like to know some of the good things which go into this loaf? They are the ingredi ents which the century-old recipe calls for —Persian black sugar dates, molasses, pure strained honey, cashew nuts, spices and flavor. ' - ' It is a delicious bread to use for sandwiches with cream cheese, marmalades, chicken salad, and various other sandwich fillers, and it is also nice as a dessert, steamed for an hour and served with hard sauce. For refreshments on the porch, one of these warm summer eve nings, try serving a sparkling lime and lemon drink that boasts a cherry, and tiny sandwiches of this bread.* We know we were born without a dollar, And probably It is wrong to holler; But if ever we get our rnmey within our shanks, We’ll say good-bye to the State banks.—Gabriel, in St. Mary’s Enterprise. 0 The 14tli session of the League of Nations Assembly will convene in Geneva on Monday, September 4th. A tremendous work is before it, a survey of the whole international situation in light of the results of the Disarmament Conference and of the Monetary and Economic Confer ence;, consideration of the work of the different technical organizations (Economic and Financial, Commun ications and Transit, Health. Intel lectual Cooperation.) The results of the first few months operation of the Convention on Limitation of the Manufacture and Trade in Narcotics will be another subject before the Assembly. ALL IN THE DAY’S WORK Here are more notes from recent reports of some of the county health officers to Dr. R. H. Riley, Director of the State Department of Health. Queen Anne’s County Milk Supply: During the past six months, monthly inspections have been made df the dairy farms in this county and milk samples have been collected for laboratory examination. The samples collected in July were far better from the standpoint of bacterial content than during any previous month. It is particularly encouraging to learn that sufficient care is being exercised in the handl ing of milk to result in a lowered bacterial count during a summer month. In addition to bringing about improved laboratory reports, a number of new dairy barns and dairy houses have been built. Cecil County Homemade Ico Boxes: Due to the extremely hot weather and to the fact that July and August are very busy months in the rural com munities so that the mothers are unable to bring their infants to the conferences, the regular infant hy giene conferences have been discon tinued until September. In place ot these clinics additional home ser vice visits are being made *by the. nurses. Much has been accomplish ed by instructing parents who can not afford ice boxes how to construct homemade, insulated, boxes for keeping the baby’s milk at the prop er temperature. Many mothers can secure ice, but cannot afford refrig erators or ice boxes and these home made boxes are answering the pur pose very well. Better control and prevention of infant summer diarr hea and other intestinal diseases re sulting from improperly oooisd and protected milk have resulted from this instruction. Death from Lockjaw:’ The first death from tetanus (lockjaw) in this county in the four years since it has been on a full-time basis, occur red this summer. A river man, 62 years old. ran a nail into his foot, in getting out of his boat. He applied home remedies, but did not have a doctor or have tetanus anti-toxin ad minisetred. He died within eight days of acute lockjaw. The possi bility of preventing tetanus (lock jaw) by means of tetanus anti-toxin is so well known to everyone, that it is hard to believe anyone who has a punctured wound or injury of any sort, would neglect to take advan tage of this life saver. Howard County Sanitary Supervision of Camps: Two additional tourist camps were inspected and licensed during the month. Three visits were made to the Civilian Conservation Camp lo cated in this county principally for the purpose of consulting with the medical officer in charge, regarding the condition of the water in the river at that point and its availabil ity for bathing purposes. Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever: The case of Rocky Mountain spotted fever (tick-bite fever) reported in June has practically recovered. In connection with this case, 61 indi viduals living within a radius of a couple of miles of the house in which the case occurred were im munized against the disease. The serum for these immunizations was very kindly furnished by the U. S. Public Health Service. O OVER THERE Evangelist John Moses Baker Baltimore, Md. There’s a bright and happy land,! Over on the golden strand, No more burdens for the weary ones to bear; Loved ones who have gone before, Wait our coming on that shore, By the Tree of Life Eternal over there. We are going by and by, To that happy home on high, When the toiling time is over and the care; Tell the story of God’s Love, In our Father’s House above, By the Tree of Life Eternal over there. When we lay our burdens down, We’ll obtain a robe and crown, And a mansion in that city bright and fair; Every conflict will be o’er, Safe at home forevermore, By the Tree of Life Eternal over there. They are waiting by the river, And watching on the shore, The loved ones who have left us are not lost, but gone before; We can almost hear them singing In that happy land so fair. By the Tree of Life Eternal over there. 0 r Everybody ought to pay direct taxes; then he’d be more particular how they’re spent. TEETH AND HEALTH tty Samuel M. Fink. D. 1). 8. SCHOOL-ERA PERIOD You will agree that the schoolera is the most important age to secure the firm foundation in life on which to build that vast superstructure of physical and mental completeness for which we all strive. How is this efficiency of our bodies secured? By proper methods of living This means, first, the proper reg ulation of our food supply, especial ly during the development period. Second, the maintenance of the body’s function of exercise and work to develop the various parts as na ture intended. Third, the exposure to sunshine and fresh air. Fourth, the maintenance of bodily cleanli ness, both within and without. Fifth, the maintenance of a happy and contented state of mind. All these principles, if developed in ear ly life and followed, wilt make a better and more useful race. You might naturally ask. “how do these principles apply to our sub ject of the care of tne teeth during school age?” Well, the regulation of our food supply governs the ma terial of which our teeth are made, riie investigation, of the American diet by scientific men have shown .hat it is very often deficient in many substances, such as phosphor us, iron, calcium, the vitamins and roughage and in some localities, io dine. When these elements are de ficient, we may have a condition ot malnutrition which results, especial ly with soft and irregular teeth, in disease, which has, in turn, a great influence on dental decay in child ren. To avoid this, the diet of youth should consist of- plenty of clean and fresh milk, both raw and cooked green vegetables and espec ially, the leafy foods. Acid fruits, butter, fish, and muscle meats and whole grain breads should be part of the diet. Another valuable article to include occasionally in the diet is liver, which medical science has shown to be of great value in anemia.

Becomes Rep resentative For Pharis Tires Announcement has just been made by the Pharis Tire and Rubber Com pany, Newark, Ohio, of the appoint ment of The H. M. Duyckinck Co. as local agents for Pharis tires. Mr, Duyckinck considers that his firm is extremely fortunate in securing this representation as the Pliaris Com pany makes its selection of dealers with unusual care and appoints only one to a city. “While most tire companies keep up a constant bombardment to get dealers and take on almost anyone who will sell their tires,” says Mr. Duyckinck, "the Pharis Company is very particular as to the credit standing and reliability of the Arm that represents them. There fac tory is running 7 days a week, and 24 hours a day, and has been busy right through the depressiono. They have been making highest quality tires for 20 years, keeping their overhead down and selling their tires at lowest prices. When the de pression came their policies were al ! ready adjusted to the new situation and the price-minded public flocked to get real value for their money.” The Pharis Company last year es tablished the official A. A. A. World’s record for stock tires at 110 miles an hour on the Indianapolis Speedway- Their first-Mne “Road gripper” tire set up the record which has never been broken. Now Pharis has made this tire still more secure against blow-outs by adding to its featured cushion cap a bead-to-bead shock-cushion of pure rubber and crimson antimony that seals in the whole fabric under the tread, ab sorbs road shocks and curb shocks, reduces friction, dissipates internal heat, and guards the fabric against flex-burn and deterioration. o Insomnia is sometimes cured if one stops taking his conscience to bed with him. —, o An empty stomach reasons and often mistakenly. 0 Rising Sun H.
