BANK VAULTS INTACT
AFTER CHICAGO FIRE
intense Heat Would Allow No
Examination For Six Days
On May 19 of this year' Chicago
and the country was startled by
newspaper headlines and radio re
ports of an immense fire that was
threatening all the stockyard sec
tion of Chicago. That fire, as the
world subsequently learned, burned
. out acre after acre of the stock
yards in the world's greatest stock
yard center. At 4201 South Hals ted
Street in Chicago there stood the
Drovers Banks?the Drovery Nation
al and the Drovers Trtisf and Sav
ings?both imder the same roof
and management. I m m e dla tely
across the street from .this bank the
conflagration was the hottest. .,^e
sult-?-the quarters of the bank yere
burned out completely and entire
ly. Nothing was left but the shell
of the building and the vaults, five
of them which contained all the
records of the bank, deposits of
customers, and the safe deposit
boxes. For six days after the holo
caut the heat would not allow
anyone to get near enough to the
vaults for an examination of their
contents. When the vaults were
finally opened not a piece of scorch
ed paper could be found. Every
thing was just as intact as it was
when the bank officials had closed
the day's business on the day before
the fire. The only evidence inside
the'.vaults that there had been a
vaults that was found to have been
caused, not by a fire hose, but gen
erated by the intense heat within.
With deposits and paper worth mil
lions the officials were uneasy, and
who wouldn't have been with de
positors .frantic to know what had
become of their savings trusted to
the care of the bank, calling them
up every hour? But the vaults were
intact and nothing Tn them was
damaged in the slightest way.
Mill. Annetta, exotic beauty from
Brazil, brought to America from her
Rio De Janerio home, for her first
American tour, by the Almond and
Conley Circus, which will exhibit
in Roxboro, for one day only, Mon
day, Oct. 8, is one of the most dar
ing and thrilling feminine circus
artists ever seen in this country.
On a special built circus rigging,
constructed entirely of gleaming
stainless steel and aluminum, Mill.
Annetta whirls around at a dizzy
speed holding by her toes alone and
without the use of a safety net be
low. Contracted by the big Almond
and Conley Circus for three years,
this daring performer has recevied
many flattering offers from the
largest circuses on tour since her
arrival here last April.
Besides this big, outstanding fea
ture, many other thrilling attrac
tions will appear In the big top with
the Almond and Conley circus here.
There will be funny clowns, strange
jungle-bred wild beasts, acrobats,
horses, po^nies, dogs, monkeys and a
host of other circus features too
numerous to mention.
Another big attraction with the
circus is the free street parade given
at 11 o'clock daily, route of which
will be announced later. Doors will
open promptly at 1:00 and 7:00
o'clock and performances will be
given under waterproof tents at 2
and 8 o'clock p. m.. rain or shine.
Patrons are urged to be on hand
early so as not to miss the huge
patriotic opening spectacle, "Amer

FELLOWSHIP WITH CHRIST
Lesson for October 7th?John 15
Golden Text: John 16:4
This is the first of a series of stu
dies in the Christian life. The chap
ter chosen for the lesson, John 15.
belongs to that sublime section of
the gospel devoted to the discourses
of the Master at the Last Supper.
It begins with the wonderfu alle
gory of the vine and the branches.
Here we have a clear picture of the
roots and fruits of the Christian
Orm of the k'#y phrases In this
ylfiquent passage iy "Abide in me."
(v\. 4). Do we abld/ in Christ? Is
He our living room? Prof., J,uccock,
of Yale, reminds us of the parlor of
a typical old-time New England
dwelling, with its shut windows,
drawn shades, and horsehair furni
ture covered with crdcheted dollies.
The wall (taper and carpet were In
hideous taste, and the gold clock was
utterly unable to keep time.- This
stuffy room was reserved for pain
ful occasions such as a funeral or
a minister's call. No one actually
Now It is the business of* religion
to take us out of such a stifling par
lor into the living room where
Christ dwells. And what a spa
cious. attractive chamber it is, large
and hospitable enuogh to harbor
every person of generous impulses
and spiritually-minded aspiration! (
There is nothing narrow or confin
ing about fellowship with the
But how shall we enter this ap
pealing room? Well, like all com
partments, It has a door. The door
stands between Christ and the hu
1 man soul. Open it, enter in, and
the Saviour and your own heart will
abide together in the gracious
abode of God's truth and love.
And from this comradeship there
will blossom rich fruit. "He that
abldeth in me, and T in him, t he
same beareth much fruit." This is
the explanation of the magnificent
success of Sir Wilfred Grenfell in
Labrador, of Albert Schweitaer in
equatorial Africa, of Toyohiko Kag
awa in the slums of Kobe, and of
"Frank N. Q. Bucham, the founder
of the* Oxford Group Movement, in
reclaiming the loet. We can share
in their reward.

* I desire to suggest that you draw
.an. imaginary circle; about yourself
small enough to include no one
I but you. This circle is your in
! dividual kingdom: no one else can
rule it. Roosevelt may govern Am
: erica, and Hitler may rule Germany
but no human being except you can
rule in your kingdom. ?
This is an inner or spiritual
kingdom the throne of which no
man can ascend regardless of his
determination or your desire. On
that throne of the kingdom of your
life sits your own ?will. Others may
force your outer actions but they
can not force your will. They can
not force love, hate, trust and other
things of the inner life.
If there be love in that life for
men or for God it is your love not
that of another. If there be envy
; and malioe-ln that heart it is
your envy and malice. If there be
disregard for the will of God it is
your disregard. If there be repen
tance, faith, and obedience they are
; yours. Everything in that heart and
life are yours.
Now recall that at one time Texas
was not a part of the American
Republic. It was an independent
republic of which Sam Houston
was president. But the people of
Texas told our government that
they did not desire to be independ
ent but wanted to become a part of
the United- States.
