And yet a bare majority’s right to change the rule is hardly, if at all. disputed. Why, then- does not the candidate, who has a majority (but not a two thirds' majority) of the delegates in his favor 'at the beginning of any given convention, use his majority at the very outset to have the two-thirds rule changed—whereupon his less than two-thirds majority will be suf ficient to nominate him? The only answer is that he cannot afford to be accused of changing the rules of the game in his own inter est. Consequently the change must be made after the nomination, with a view to the next convention; not be fore the selection of a standard bearer or while the fight over the selection of one is In progress. And after tha nomination has been made, all bands are in a desperate burry to leave, and the matter Is not attended to. In 1920, for example .the rules com mittee of the Jeffersonian convention which nominated James M. Cox un animously adopted a resolution offer ed by Senator William H. King of Utah, to substitute the straight ma jority principle at the 1924 convention, for the two-thirds’ requirement. "But in the rush to get away, Im mediately following the vice presiden tial choice," relates Senator King, "It was forgotten completely, and not on ly never was acted on by the dele gates generally, but even missed being reported out of the committee " Had it not been for this oversight in 192 Q, the prolonged deadlock in New York four years later would have been averted and the Democratic party, whatever the result at the polls, probably would have escaped several vears of ensuing disorganization. If there Is opposition on Capitol Hill at present to a change In the rule. I have been unable to find it among Democratic politicians there but there is inertia. In the past such objection as may have existed undoubtedly existed imong southern Democrats, inasmuch is the two-thirds requirement permit ted them to exercise a veto power over ’he preponderant number of northern delegates. Now. however, being con vinced that Governor Roosevelt wtll enter the June convention with a ma jority of the votes (but possibly not a ‘wo-thirds’ majority) and being also iatisfied with him as a candidate, they ieem not unwilling to acquiesce in a modification in the rule, which they consider ultimately inevitable anyway md which presumably would insure -he New Yorker’s nomination. Stjll, he Rooeeveltitee hesitate to urge it, >elieving that the governor will suc ceed in mustering two-thirds by the lecond or third ballot at the latest md fearing to be accused of a recqg lition of weakness already.

Jesus had no sympathy with his people’s ancient prejudices against other races. He refused to make a “detour" around Samaria, as they were accustomed to do, because of their hatred of the Samaritans. So, when he wished to go northward from Judea into Galilee, “he must needs pass through Samaria." At nopnday he came with his dis ciples to Jacob's well, near the village of Sycbar, and being thoroughly wearied with the journey, Jesus sat by the well while his disciples went into the village to buy food. A wo man of the Samaritans who came with her pitcher to draw water from the Well was amazed that he should ask Groceries 1 package Washburn’s pancake flour 10c 1 can Ruby pink salmon _ - _ 10c Regular size package spaghetti an 4 macaroni 5c 14-oz. bottle tomato ketchup 15c 1 qt. jar sweet mixed or whole pickle 25c 1 lb., jar best peanut butter 15c 2 lb. box cocoa -25 c 2 No. 2 can No. 3 sieve early June peas 25c 97 Day Coffee That’s Coffee That IS 3 cans snap beans 25c 1 can No. 2 grated pineapple 17c Can No. 2 1-2 sliced pineapple 22c 1 can No. 2 1-2 fancy fruit for salad 30c 1 can No. 2 1-2 Bartlett Pears _____ 30c 1 pint fluffo salad oil ?0c 1 qt. fiuffo salad oil 40c “WHY TOTE ’EM” We Deliver E.

HENDEBSON, N. 0. of her the favor, "Give me to drink.” She expressed both this amazement and her own prejudice by replying, “How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, who am a Sama ritan woman?” And John adds the ex planatory note. “For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans." It was a tactful method of getting at the deepest spiritual needs of a sinner that Jesus used here at the well when he asked the favor of a drink of water from this led up to this woman's spiritual needs and the resources he offered to satisfy the deepest longings of her soul. “Every one that drinketh of this water shaH thirst again: but whosoever drjnketb of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up into eternal life.” The Spotlight on Sin. Having tactfully gotten the worn- an’s attention and aroused her inter est In her spiritual needs Jesus threw the spotlight of his divine insight down Into the darkest recesses of her moral life by spying, “Do, call thy husband, and come hither." When the woman sought to evade the issue by saying, “I have no husband.” Jesus revealed his full knowledge of her past and present life by saying, “Thou Huidst well, I have no husband: for thou boat he-’ five husbanda; and he whom th'-u a >w hast ia pot thy band: tin.: bast thou aald - y . Her amazed reply, **Bl r I perceive that thou art a prophet.' waa virtually a full confession of her sin. But she Im mediately tried to change hte sub ject into an argument qt the relative merits of her own or his place of wor ship. Jesus replied that not the place but the spirit was the essential thing in worship; "God is a spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” Jesus Reveals Himself. Having made her see herself in her sinfulness, Jesus’ next object waa to reveal himself as her Saviour. The woman spoke of her expectation of the Messiah or Christ, saying, “When he is come, he will declare unto us all things." And is not this just what Jesus had been doing with her Use? So it was easy for her to believe him when he replied, “I that speak unto thee am he.” Her glowing faith in her new found Messiah and Saviour caused her to forget her water pot and rush back to town to tell her friends of the Christ. As a result of her testimony, many were converted and acclaimed him “the Saviour of the world.” | Rural Churches MIDDLEBURG M. E. CIRCUIT. Rev. P. D. Woodall, pastor.
