Enclosed find check for one dollar
which is to pay for four subs to The

Slowly but steadily the world is

A little dribble of truth is banning

BOOMER, N. C,
JOSEPH AND HOOVER
I have been contending all the time
that the United States of America
is in some sort of, sense the anti
type of Joseph, the Dreamer. In
fact, it seems reasonable to me that
the main body of our people al
though indeed a very mixed popula
tioh may be direct lineal descendants
of Joseph. .
If you will just read in Genesis
where Jacob in his old' age blessed
the two sons of Joseph, and also
where he spoke to all of his own sons
together, telling them what would
happen in the last days, you may get
a new idea about Joseph. ,
You remember Joseph had two sons
named Ephraim and Manassah, and
Manassah was the firstborn. But
when old man Jacob went to give
them his blessing he put his right
hand on the head of Ephraim, the
younger, and his . left hand on the
head of Manasseh, the firstborn. And
when Joseph called Jacob's attention
to the fact that .Mannasseh was the
older and tried to make him change
his hands, he refused to do it, saying:
"I know it, my son, I know it. He
also shall become a people, and he also
shall be great; but truly his younger
brother shall be greater than he, and
his seed shall become a multitude of
nations." Genesis 48:10.
And then a little further alonff in
chapter 49,where Jacob is "telling the
fortunes" of his boys, as you might
say, we read:
"Joseph is a fruitful bough, even
a fruitful bough by a well, whose
branches run over the wall." Gen.
49:22.
We see that both of Joseph's boys
were -to be great, but Ephraim was
to be the greater, and was to be
come " a multitude of nations."
What about that multitude of na
tions? Who are they and where are
they? It certainly doss not mean
the Jews, because they didn't come
from Joseph at all they came from
Judah. And the Jews are only one
nation, anyhow, and not a very big
one at that. I can't get away from
the notion that there must be several
great nations in the world today who
are of the seed of Joseph. And we
would naturally expect the greatest
of the Joseph nations to be the see:v
of Ephraim. What nation could that
be except the United States, which
is admittedly the greatest nation in
the world today?
Remember, again, that Joseph is a
fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough
by a well whose brances ran over the
wall. A well carries with it the idea
of water, and the "wall" might be the
Atlantic or Pacific ocean. Anyway,
Joseph's branches were to spread out
run over the wall and produce
fruit in some other part of the world.
I find so many things in the his
tory of the United States that cor
respond to the history of Joseph that
I am just about certain there is a
connection between the two. It woula
make this article too long to enumer
ate ail the similarities I have in mind.
But, for one thing, Joseph was sent
away into a foreign land, where he
became great and was used as an
agency for feeding the world in a time
of great food shortage. He was the
Herbert Hoover of that time.
And now, during the war and since
the war, the United States has had
to practically feed the world. And
the one man in the United States
who has done more than any other
man to keep the world from starviner
' Gf
is Herbert Hoover.
It may be more than just an acci
dent that Herbert Hoover is now be
ing looked to from all sides as the
man best fitted to be our next presi
dent. . And it may mean something,
also, that he has no nolitics. n far-
as anybody can discover. Both Demo
crats and Kepubiicans are talking:
wCout nominating him. It is even sug
gested that he may be nominated by
both parties, which would be a new
thing in American politics.
TftC became very wealthy after-
he became governor of Egypt. The
United States , is the richest nation
in the world corresponding to the
Egypt of Joseph's time and Hoover
is a multi-millionaire and a long
headed business man.

Tom is now demanding in words
