Go ahead and get all the world can give you, but you are worth nothing unless you have what Jesus Christ can give. If it were not for the principles of Jesus Christ, there would not be any country worth living in. So many people will have to yank out their check books and pay back some money they skinned somebody out of before they will ever find Jesus Christ. There are lots of good moral men and women who are not Christians but there are no Christians who are not moral. vThe trouble is., Jesus Christ has been seeking you, but you have turned your back on Him. If God would give me the privilege to go to hell and preach one rermon and give the invitation, I could de populate hell in fifteen minutes. If men had half as much grit as the women, there would be dlTerent stories written about a good many homes. If you want to find greatness, don't go towards the throne; go to tin cradle and the nearer you get to th cradle, the nearer you get to great ness. When God sends us great mn.

Comrade Epps Tucker presented and adopted by a rising vote, which are as fol lows: Whereas, there was no meeting of our State organization tor 1918. and whereas the Legislature and govern ment of Florida has always been lib eral in providing for the Confederate Veterans, a fact which we acknowl edge with profound gratitude, and whereas our ranks are rapidly thin ning and will shortly be only a mem ory; we most respectfully call the at tention of the legislature soon to as sembln in Tallahassee, to the fact that pensioners of the Federal Army in the war between the States are now receiving Forty Dollars per month, which we consider they well deserve; yet, it is nearly three times the amount provided for our Confed erate Veterans, who are equally de serving and equally needy Therefore be it resolved, First, That the thanks of Lakeland Camp No. 1543 Is hereby tendered to Senator 0.

Moffat, who arrived here from New York three days ago, opened hl3 trunk yesterday, which ho brought with him, checked on his ticket, he found it had been rifled. There was in the trunk two bottles of fruit juice which Mr. Moffat was bringing to show Mr. Trobetta with relation to the manufacture here of marmalade. The contents of the bot tles. Mr. Moffat said, were extremely valuable, containing tbe result of con sidurable xperiments in preserving fruit juices. But and here come3 tb(S noint thn bottles resembled bosr bottles; were of dark color and the shaiw of hf-nr bottles. Those bottles were eone. Two glass jars of preserves, which were carefully wrapped when they were put into the trunk, had been examined, the wrapping taken off and aa a re. suit they broke. Mr. Moffat said his clothes suffered considerable from the coating of jam that flowed over them. The question in Mr. Moffat's mind Is, was the trunk rifled by prohibition agents north. It is said here that much of that sort of thing has been going on on the Virginia line, where northern travelers come into dry ter ritory. The lock of the trunk, Mr. Moffat declared was smashed, and his ef fects subject to be stolen on the re mainder of the trjp.
