Some Psalm The Ford is my car, I shall not. want another. It maketh me to lie down in wet places, It soileth my soul, It leadeth me into deep waters, It leadeth me into paths of riducule for its name's sake. It prepareth a breakdown for me in the presence of mine enemies. Yea, though I run through the val leys, I am towed up the hill. I fear great evil when it is with me. Its rods and its engines discomfort me. It anoineth my face with oil, Its tank runneth over, Surely to goodness if this thing fol low me all the days of my life, I shall dwell in the house of the insane for ever.-- Sussez Herald.
