TilK MOXROK JOlTU KRIIMT. XOYEJTOER 20, 192a EIGHT P.KC.n A-A A $3 Wheat -and 20c Cotton The Western Wheat Growers Association 3rede- i manding three dollars per bushel for their wheat. J The Southern farmer is selling his cotton for twenty cents and less. If we must have cheap cotton let us have cheap wheat also. If every farmer in Union county will sow enough wheat for his own needs he will not only swat the Wheat Speculator but the Cot ton Speculator and Doll Weevil as well. Probably it has not been profitable for some of our farmers to raise wheat but we believe that where wheat is X put on good, well prepared soil a few acres would be profitable to any farmer. In order to encourage the farmer of Union county to sow wheat, valuable prizes are being offered for the best three acre field of wheat. OUR OFFER of $50 first prize and $25 second prize for the best 3-acre field of wheat all in one field is open to every farmer of the county with no restrictions as to kind of wheat, kind of soil nor when or how sown. We have secured some very fine seed wheat which f we will distribute among the merchants of Monroe and urge you to take advantage of this opportunity to win one or more of the prizes offered and at the same time make for yourself and family bread for next year. Whether this is the period of re-adjustment or not, it is certainly the time for everyone to proceed with Caution. The general feeling of lower prices may be realized and again supply and demand may have to be reconed with. HENDERSON ROLLER MILLS CO CHuri SPHERE OF INFLUENCE "OWnrr" Sajs IU Artif HW Khoukl lie Continuous InMrad of Few Houm Work. M 1ST ABANDON OLD IDEAS By OBSERVER. I ani glad that Mr. Rotter In the main endorses my remark based upon the prevalence of drinking in Monroe on Armistice Day. I think he and 1 aeree in all essentials. If there Is a difference it ts not in pur ple or principle but in method. His idea Is that while we need all man ner of means for play and wholesome recrvaiion 1 went loo far In Intlmat iug that the rhnirchra should assume responsibility to furnish the means I did not wish to make this Impres sion. I agree with him that the great function of the church is spiritual leadership and that its first duty is to afford means and help for the cul tivation of spirituality, not only in its own members directly, but In every way possible to all. It is method and detail which cause most of the controversies in life and we are all prone to Ignore the ends sought after by too much stress upon the means. I think thru is th principal difficulty with the churches to-day. We hold on to methods that have ceased to be ef;leaeious for the end tu view. We think more of means than ends. is the spirituality ot the boys iho go there instead of to the pool rooms. and of the girls who go there In stead of to the stuffy Indoor dances. to be injured? Out. tne answer mishi be made, what of the spiritual uiifsion of the church. Is that not going to be injured? The reply to that is that the spiritual mission of the church is to make itself func tlou In the life of .the people and it can't do that when the people are somewhere else .and the church la closed. It Is a matter of common knowledge that people do not attend church sen ices as they should. Serious stu dents of the subject predict that the time Is not far distant when church attendance will be negligible unless there are some changes soma where. If the peopl will not come to the cnurrb It U the very essence of mis sions that the church shall go to them. I mean that if the old forms of worship do not attract. It is the part of wisdom to search for new means to bring the spiritual leader ship of the gospel into the life ot the largest number of people possible. This does not mean that the church should abandon its spiritual mission but that it should search for means ; to make It more effective. The difficulty arises from otir 1 failure to comprehend the idea of the I wholeness of the Individual as taught j x''y Jesus. The human being Is com iiAl Jtdr. X i posed of body and soul and mind. A AiiftMno I.n.la tit m.,lf velop, and aid in the petrection or either is good Christianity. All men cannot be approached by either one of the three avenues and it Is in no way lessening the importance of the spiritual when we seek to round out the whole. This is a modern conrep tlon. though as stated above. It was amply emphasized by Jesus. The church is not the only one ot our agencies that is slow to learn and act upon the principle, but it is about to be the slowest.

In law the ten- ! deurv is away from technicalities to- I ward equity in civil procedure, and i in criminal procedure the tendency is away from the old idea of a npeciflc j punishment for a specific dellmiucn !cy, toward an examination of the ln- dividual to see why he committed the j offense and to aid If possible in re i Morion him to normal modes or con j duct.

Jesus first healed the bodily troubles and then told the people to go and sin no more. If we find that from lack of recreation and wholesome social contact people drink whiskey and otherwise debase themselves why Isn't It the business of the church, which must not forget thai It Is It self a means and not an end, to do what It can to remove the things that stand in the way of the growth ot spirituality and religion?

While the church Is slow to learn Its lesson It Is learning It. All of us lit this section can remember the time when most of the really good church members did not believe 'n having musical Instruments In the church houses. The fiddle had been an Instrument of tho detfil, therefore the violin could not be made to serve God. Church suppers and parties, which owe their success not to the fact that money Is needed for the church, but to the fact that people are rtarvlng for social contact, are still frowned upon by many good people. And ninny of the objectors are silenced only by consoling them selves that they make money which ran be put to a good enure. In Greensboro a Presbyterian congrega tion is building a churcn to cover four acres of ground. Itut the four acres are not to be covered by a mas sive church house to remain closed six days In the week and about all day Sunday and nearly empty on all .Sundays except for ' big occasions. No, the church building Itself Is go ing to be of no great pretensions Out there is to be a swimming pool on the yard, a ball ground, tennis courts, a wading pool for the chil dren aud runny inviting scats and pleasant places for people to gainer Now, if the church people would do as Mr. Rotter suggests, exercise their influence in providing means in the community elsewhere, the same end would be achieved. My point la tint where these thing are needed and are not had every church Is duty bound to do as much as it can to supply the deficiency. The church can t let lta light shine by cutting off tne current all the time except for one hour Sunday night; even then it shines largely to empty benches. hy do people not go to church? Common sense must tell ua that they don t go because they do not feel that they gain anything thereby. AH men seek self interest. Since the visible church Is composed of people, and the people are not Interested. It Is no solution of the difficulty to aay mat present cnurch methods are wholly right and the mass of the people wholly wrong. We must study this thing and see where the diffi culty lies. No man with a grain or sense or experience will deny that It Is easier for men to do right in a good atmosphere than in a bad one. Some people are spiritually minded and enjoy the church as It Is. Sunrely these could not be hurt If the church should undertake to Influence the lesa abstractly spiritually minded by approaching them through the ave nues of wholesome bodily recreation and stimulating but Innocent social undertakings. We must get away from the old Idea that whatever Is pleasant must be sinful. NOTICE OK ADMI.M.STKATIO.V Having qualified as administrator. with the will annexed of tho ett of J. E.
