AN APPRECIATION OF JAMES
Once upon a time, in far-off Italy
two brothers lived upon little adjoin
ing farms. One was single and the
other was married. It chanced that a
certain year the wheat crop was cut
short by drouth, so that each man had
barely enough for his own need*.
One night the married man lay
awake thinking of his brother. “The
poor fellow is single, and does not have
the comfort and happiness of home as
I do. He is worried about his harvest,
I will get lip and carry some sheaves
of wheat into his field, and h e will be
On the same night the bachelor was
thtnking of his brother—“ The poor fel
low is married, and has a host of bur
dots and care® that I do not have
to bear. He is doubtless worried about
his small harvest, I will get up and
carry some of my wheat into his field,
and when he se*e the shocks, he wilt
be happier ’*
Out Into the darkneto of the night
went these brothers, each lugging
wheat into the other’s field—The moon
• came suddenly from behind a cloud
• and they stood facing each other with
wheat sheaves under their arms.
This true story portrays perfectly
the disposition and nature of J. E.
Burroughs. An honored life closed
December 12, 1»32, when the gentle,
unassuming spirit of James E. Bur

winged its flight into the glorious

young, he, with his father, William
Burroughs, moved to ihe home where
he died. He united with the Metho
dist church in early life, continuing
faithful as a stewara until death.
There are two tests of Christian life,
one found in the Epistle of James:
“Pure religion and undefiled before
God and the Father is this. To visit
the fatherless and widows in their af
fliction and to keep himself unspotted
from the world,’’ and the other is
found in the lofty theme of Micah:
“What doth the Lord require of thee
but to do justly and to walk humbly
with thy God?” Mr. Burroughs meas
ured up to both of these standards.
