Page GUILTY OP THE WHOLE LAW "For wflosoever shall keep the whole law and yet offend in one point he i guilty of all.-' (James. 2 10) . We never forget to inform onr readers of one great fact. And that is this, tbav there is two Laws given in Gods word. The one is the Mosaical Law,- com mitted to Peter as the gospel of Circumcision. The other the Law of rigbtousness, committed to Paul as the Igospel of uncir cu incision, please read. "Bat contrariwise when they saw that the gospelof the uncir cnmcision was committed unto me, as the. gospel of the circum cision was uct Peter, : (For be that wrought effectu ally in Peter to the apoatleship of the circumcision the same was - mighty in me toward be Gen tiles;)" (Gal. 2-7-8) ) There is no use for any one to deny the two '; gospels as we add Above, the gospel of circum cision, or Mosaical Law was committed to Peter for the Isra tits. And the gospel of uncir' cumcision, the Liw of rlgbtou- 4iess was committed to Paul for toe Gentiles, Now these two Laws, are1 compared with each other in this manner, by James one of the twelve Apostles speak tag to the Jews. Please read. . (so speak ye, and -to do, as they that shall be judged; by the law of lib -rty," (James, 2 -12) I b this day and age of the world,, the La wof .Liberty, is the Law it) the Spirit, Please read. .'' "For the law of the Spirit of life in Cbri9t Jesus hath made me free focm the la of slu and death.'' (Rom, 8-2J -Now dear readers when you the spirit," God sent his own son in the likeness of sinful flesh. ;.:'t "That theTighteousue68 of the law might be fulttlled in us who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. ' For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh but they that are after the Spirit the tblogs of the Spirit." (Rom. 8-4-5) ' Then we must walk after the spirit. For we know that in us that is in our .flesh there is no good thing." For there is-a law in our members which war against ibe.lawofour mind That law is the natural law of the flesh, and it is only by the' will power, working thru the law of onr mind that will bring the carnal law into subjection, By walking after the Spirit. And when e- fail to bring every thoueht of the carnil mind into to the front with an open band and prove by your good deeds to your fellow man your good Odd Fellbwabip. Home Circle Column, Homes are beautiful only when there are equal rights; when tbe . hubband, wife and children - respect and admire each other; whare there is confidence and trust: and this can sever be when the wife and daughters are reduced to the condition of pauper and beggars., If the evil exists in tbe borne there should be a readjustment of affairs, and each member of tbe working tirm be allowed his or ber share. Then tbe 'home business will not be robbed of subjection unto the obedienc of the concentrated efforts of its Oblrst. We then become guilty partners, nor will tbe girts and of tbe whole. So trusting that our readers will grasp the whole d.iylneiawaad ohey.ind become subject unto Bible Socialism for tbe good of all mankind- TOE CENTER LINK OF ?" ' ODD-FELLOWSHIP. Tbisgreal link of Odd Fellow shiiris "uoVb ' at all times, it is intended to remind us that God is LovR." And that we stroma love our neighbor as ourselves. And should remind us at all times that "LOVE ' workettt no ill to his neighbor. Reminds us that tbe band of an Odd-Fellow, should always be open to a brother. But we must say that it Is a sham, when a man who claims to be to Odd;Fellow so far forgets bis sojomn obligation, violate one of tbe least command as to close bis band to his Bro. in this Law you are then gilt of the whole or in other words, you stand under Condemnation. And Inorder to obey , this Law you must walk after the spirit. For Christ said that there was no condemnation to them who walk not after the flesh bat after and abuts up his bowels of com D&Hsioo. and turns a deaf ear to the wants of bis brother And leave bim to battle against bis enemies lone banded, we are aorrj to say tbat there , is too many of such Odd Fellows in ihe world- Bro.

Are you in tbe habit of doing such deeds whenever a chance offers? Are you on tbe lookout for such opportunities? We often think the very rich must be happy, but riches bring: neither happiness nor content. The most perfect serenity is found with those who have learn1 ed to limit their desires rather than with those who have unli mited means of gratifying their desires. To possess a ht me and those is it who love us, to have health and money enough to sat isfy our actual wants These are toe - elements absolutely necessary to a contented life. Tbe man who has V field to plow and plant has a better' chance lor health and happiness than tbe mam who seeks by gulf ' and other diversions to get the exercise and development that tbe Lord meant be should obtain by labor.
