if THE PRAYER CORNER 1
JESUS CHRIST AND CHILDREN
Read over again The Prayer Cor
ner for last week, on the same sub
ject. Do not fail to read it. Thei
read this week's.
Several lessons were needed by th<
Twelve before they could appreciat<
the Dignity of Childhood and th<
reverence due it. "Take heed,'' saic
Christ, "that ye despise not one 0.1
these little ones, for I say unto you
that in Heaven, their anglels do al
ways behold the face of my Father'
(St. Matt. 18:10) "and whosoever
shall offend (scandalise) one of these
little ones which believe in me, it
were better for him that a millstone
were hanged about his neck and that
he were drowned in the depth of the
3ea" (St. Matt. 18 :G).
"Whosoever shall give to drink un
to one of these little ones a cup of
cold water only in the name of a dis
piple, verily I say unto you, he shall
in no wise lose "his reward-' (Matt.
"Whoso shall receive this little
child in my name receiveth me, and
whosoever receiveth me, receiveth
Him that sent me" (St. Luke 9:48).
We caii imagine the tender Sav
iour. watching the children at their
games in the Market Place in Jerusa
lem. He took an interest in the an
tics of these little mimics as they
played at weddings and funerals.
(St. Matt 11:17 and Luke 7:32). No
wonder they loved and followed one
who could sympathize with them ev
en in their play. Consequently we
find that when 5,000 men followed
Jesus Christ round to the other side
of the Lake of Galilee, and remained
with Him for three days, there were
little children there too. The cvan
gelist^ did not trouble to count them,
because he regarded them as of lit
tle importance, but he mentions their
presence: "There were 5,000 men,"
he says, "besides the children"?
(Matt 14:21). Children counted in
the estimate of the Saviour, how
ever. "It is not the will of your
Father which is in heaven that one
of these little ones should perish''
"Whosover shall not receive the
Kingdom of God as a little child he
shall not enter therein" (St. Mark
Yes, children were His most wor
thy pupils. After lamenting over the
unbelief of Corazin and Bethsaida,
where most of His mighty works had
been done, He lifted up His face to
heaven and cried, "I thank Thee, O
Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
because Thoti has hid these things
from the wise and prudent, and hast
revealed them unto babes, even so
Father for so it seemed good in Thy
sight" (St. Matt. 11:25).
And so to the very end of His min
so do Mice, once they eat RATV
DIE. And they leave no odor
behind. Don't take our word
for it, try a package. CATS
and DOGS wont touch it. Rats
pass up all food to get Rat Die.

I istry, it was the children who res
j ponded to His teaching. On Palm
- : Sunday, when the grey-beared theo
- 1 logians from the Sacred City came
1 up with shocked and annoyed faces,
and drew His attention to the fact
i that the children were crying out be
s fore Him "Hosahna to the Son of
; David," He replied, "Have ye never
I read this Scripture: 'Out of the
mouths of babes and sucklings hast
i Thou perfected praise'? (St. Matt.
' The lesson which Jesus Christ
? taught the disciples of old is one of
i the first that teachers should learn, if
. they would, obey the Master's com
i niand: "Suffer the little children to
i come unto me." We must believe in
these little ones, who impose such
?confidence in us, their parents and
instructors. It is only when we real
ize what wonders can be wrought
with this most promising of mater
ials (tho soul of a child) that we arc
able to achieve marvels.
Be sure and say the Prayer for
last week and then this Prayer:
Our Father who art in Heaven,
Thine is the kingdom and the power
and the glory. Blessed be Thy Name,
that by Thine almighty power, Thy
| kingdom, the kingdom of heaven,
hath come to this earth and will
conic until the whole earth is filled
with Thy glory. Blessed be Thy
name, that we and our little ones arc
the children of Thy kingdom. O
Father, we look to Thy Father love
to give us, who are fathers and
mothers and teachers, grace to real
ize how sacred our calling and our
home is, because we are training
: children of the Kingdom for Thee.
Teach us, we pray Thee, never to
put asunder what the words of our
I.ord have joined' together ? the chil
' i Iron and the kingdom. May all out
love and intercourse and influence
help to link them inseparably with
i the kingdom. May they never know
that they arc not living and grow
ing up in it.
Blessed Lord Jesus who didst say
of the little ones, "Of such is the
kingdom," we do beseech Thee reveal
to us, what Thy kingdom is in its
spiritual reality and glory, what it is
even hero on earth, as the rule of
| fjc'l by the Holy Spirit in the hearts
and lives of His people. May the
kingdom of God be within us in such
i power, and we within it in such
truth that our children may not only,
have the name, but that the very at
mosphere they breathe in our home ,
be such as will really make then; 1
Children of the Kingdom. Amen.

FRIENDSHIP IS ONE
. PART OF SCOUT LIFE
( Scou-t Reporter)
True friends are rare things. They
are gems to be coveted and well pro
tected. They will stick by you
through thick and thin. Trouble
loses some of its horrors, when they
are near to help you; to place an en
couraging hand upon your shoulder
and give you a cheerful smile. Things
somehow seem brighter with them
and when they are gone, life is not
Fair weather friends arc plenti
ful. You know them well. The A l
low who enjoys climbing upon your
band wagon and glorying in your
good luck. Imposing upon your gen
erosity and willing to be your
friend as long as it is easy
for him to dp so. However the
first sign of hard luck sends him
scurrying away. Once you are on
your feet again, he creeps back to
take his old parasitic place.
The fourth Scout law reads: "A
Scout is friendly. He is a friend to
all and a brother to every othei
Scout training develops in the boy
a deep feeling and appreciation for
another's friendship. For the Roy
Scout organization is based funda
mentally upon this word. Without
it, Scouts are as nothing, for they
lose the very principle upon which
their organization was founded.
"He-is a friend to all.'' He offers
his friendship to everyone and it
hurts him to see it scorned and cast
aside. The Scout does not often lose
a friend once he gains him; they
"He is a brother to every other
Scout." Whether he be black or
yellow, brown or white. Universally
friends. Over 40 different countries
have Scout troops and they are all
fundamentally the same. Based upon
the same laws and principles of true,

his life, if it be necessary to save the

is just what the Scout tries to make

HANDFORGED PLOW I
FOUND IN RIVER j
An old, handforged plow which I
might be anywhere from seventy-five
to one hundred years old was brought
to The News office Monday by D. C.
Hall, who said that he found the
queer farm implement near L'>ng
Shoals on French Broad river. Th
plow had apparently been washed for
some distance, since it was found
lodged firmly under the roots of an
old tree, llall reported that he found
the plow quite by accident on the
third day of August.
The unusual contrivance was forg
ed into the shape of an arrowhead by
its originators and it will weigh ap
proximately 20 pounds. An iron bar
extends nearly two feet in front
with a large tap rusted firmly to the
end of it. The top of the plow has
an iron band around it. It is thought
that a wooden handle which has long
since rotted away was inserted there
in order to control its course in the
Theories as to the operation of the t
plow vary greatly. Some are of '
the opinion that the work of using it
would require two men ? one to hold
the plow and another to drive the
horse. Or perhaps,, if were able to
speak the plow miglit be able to tell
of being pulled by an ox.
All told, the peculiar farm instru
ment is one of the. oldest and most
unusual plows ever found and exhib
ited in this section.

''I have been a C3r owner continuously
for nearly 20 years," writes a motorist
connected with a leading university.
';Durin^ tki3 period I have bought
eleven new automobiles. Eight of the
eleven were" in the middle-price field,
one cost three thousand dollars, and the
last is a Ford I purchased thirteen
"irn the light of this experience I can
Bay in all sincerity that I have derived
more genuine satisfaction from the
Ford than ;'iiy car I ever owned. In
saying this, I am flunking in
terms of comfort, safety, driving
pleasure, ease of conlrol and
economy. My next car will also be a
Ford because it will give me wlial I want
at a price I can afford to pay."
When you get behind the wheel of
the Ford and dri.c I* yourself you will
know it is a truly remarkable car at a
low price. You will like it when you
first buy it. You will become more and
more enthusiastic the ionger yon drive it.
After thousands of miles of driving
you will say "it's a great car." Its econ
omy will save you many dollars.
