The first played by the girls of the

tha boys played with tha result that
Spring Hill waa again tha winner.
On account of the swiftness with

THINGS PERTAINING TO LIFE
By Harry M. North.
OPPRE88TNG THE POOH.
ta a gnat deal written in the
Bible about the troetmont seconded to
the poor. Evidently God thinks
muck ef them, and I should be (low
to oppress say ono who seems to be
so near to Him. Many times Hs is
represented as taking the port of the
poor against than whs had wronged
them. I am sure that Gad would
make a very strong Advocate In the
defense of the hoi pleas. Ha Identifies
them end their cause with Himself.
It is written that he that giraa ta the
poor ie thereby lending to the Lord.
That would seem to bo mossy wit
God made provision for the peer
beck in the early days. He directed
that when man reaped their fields
they should always leave e little for
the poor people of the eommenlty, and
the owner of trees must not thresh
off the last of the fruit but must al
low some to remain for the needy.
They were not to take a poor man's
garment or any such necessary thing
as a pledge from kirn, nor should they
hasp it over night, lest the men should
suffer on account of not having it may
be to cover himself at sight. When a
workman bad finished hie task and
had come fgr his pay. he was net to
be sent away with Instructions to corns
again, but hs was to be paid then. Ho
needed this money to live on.
Saint James speaks very bitterly
egatnet certain rich man who had
kept back the wages ot those who bed I
reaped their fields. By oppressing
the poor they had heaped together
treasons for the bet days, but they
should not last until than us God
would see to it that theae Ul-gotton
gains became corrupted in their pos
session. 1 have known prices put up
at company storm and commie-rise,
and laborers compelled to trade there
or lose their positions, and they had
to pay extortionate prices. A terrible
