Dr. Clarence l'oe Speaks in Kenly.
Kenly, Nov. 20. ? Last Sunday after
noon at three o'clock in the Kenly
High School Auditorium, Dr. Clarence
Poe delivered a masterful address on
"The Church and the Kingdom of
God on Earth."
The stage was beautifully decorated
with ferns and other green plants;
Miss Lena S. Marley presided at the
piano; MissAugusta McKeithen ren
dered an appropriate solo.
Dr. Poe, after being presented by
Professor M. B. Andrews, spoke es
sentially as follows:
"In this age of conflict, both of
arms and of ideas, it is well for every
man to stop and question whither we
are drifting. During the years I have
traveled and studied world problems,
I have learned that there are three
great religious dieas held by different
portions of the human race. The peo
ple of India have an 'other world' re
ligion. They claim that religon has to
do with, the Great Beyond and it does
not concern practical life at all. The
teeming millions in China hold to the
idea that religion is a matUr of this
world only. They claim that we can
not know what is in the future and
that therefore we should concern our
selves with the things of this world
alone. Now, which of these views is
correct? I recently heard a great
divine assert that the one task of
Christianity is to impel men to 'be
I born again.' On the other hand, many
thinkers claim today that Christianity
has both a social message ar.d a social
"Now, I thank God that the day of
theological dogmatism is past; yet I
do believe that thinking men every
where must dccide what is the duty of
the Christian Church and the Chris
tian ministry. Moreover, I thank God
that the Great Christ Himself out- j
lined the work of the Church as clear
ly as anyone could ask. He did not
say that 'thou shalt love the Lord thy
God,' and stop there; neither did he
assert anywhere that Christianity con
sists merely in loving one's neighbor
as himself. Christ clearly stated that
true religion is active love: it is love
for God and love for man.
"It seems to me therefore that the
duty of the Christian Church today is
two-fold; it must seek and save that
which is lost ? it must convert the
soul of man; and also, it must minister
to those in need ? it must heal the sick,
feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and
give comfort to the broken-hearted.
Has the Church failed? No; but it
will fail unless it clearly sees its duty
and then does it with its might.
"Wh< rcas the religion of India is of
the other world, and whereas the re
ligion of China is of this world alone,
the Christian religion is of both
worlds. The s:-.me Master who de- I
dared that men must be born again,
also said that he who desires to be
greatest among mien must be the
servant of all. In this hour of need,
therefore, let us stress the importance
of genuine unselfish service."
While in Kenly, Dr. Poe w:-.s enter

Municipal Wood yard at Selma.
Prof. E. II. Moser, who is superin- J
tendent of the i>uhlic schools of Selma, I
Johnston County, was here Saturday
as the representative of the people of
his town to confer with the federal
fuel administrator for the state, A. W.
McAlister. Mr. Moser told friends
that a number of prominent business
and professional men of Selma, includ
ing M. C. Winston, N. E. Edgerton an<l
N. E. Ward, had taken the lead, called
mass meeting, and in this manner
"put over" the municipal woodyard
plan, despite disinclination of the
mayor. The mayor is working in full
co-operation with the municipal wood
yard plan now it was stated, and
Selma is put on a wood burning basis,
with the first order amounting to 600
cords. From now on wood will be 1 1
burned there wherever possible to sub- E
stitute it for coal and the coal supply,
such as can be secured, will be us<>d to
run the three large cotton mills and
other factories which have to use it.
Mr. Morer said the situation in Selma
grew critical. He has a school of (i00
attendance and was without a pound
of coal to run its boilers. He is man
aging now to heat the school with
wood. The coal shortage is not a mat
ter of theory in Selma, it is a condi- |
tion, and on which threatened to shut E
down the mills and throw hundreds E
out of employment. The situation ap- F
peared to have in it so much danger of [
suffering for the people, that the I
citizens took the step which has re
sulted in the establishment of the cen
tral woodyard. The community effort
is believed to be adequate for the
case. ? Greensboro News.
Perhaps the most pathetic failure in
life is the Man With Too Many Ideas.
If he would only keep his imagination
