Just' how true the .-tory is that to our
attention recently we don't know, but there is
at least one thing that can be .-aid about it, and
that is, it certainly give.-, a picture of what most
of us have gone through during the past tew
The story goes something like thi-.
Somewhere in these hills there lived a
mountaineer and his family of four in a little
three-room house in a most isolated spot. The
small house only afforded enough room for his
family. One day he received a message that
his father-in-law, mother-in-law and brother,
in-law were coming to pay an extended visit,
Under the circumstances the farmer was
somewhat puzzeled as to how he could provide
comfortably for them. In the neighborhood there
lived a preacher who was constantly being
sought by those in trouble, and his advice was
sought by the mountaineer as to what to do.
The preacher advised the mountaineer to
give his in-laws a cordial welcome, and to come
back a week later and let him know how he wa
The mountaineer carried out the preacher's
imtructions and at the end of the- week mad'.'
his report, which was that they were rather
crowded in the small house. Much to the sur
prise of the. farmer, the preacher instructed him
to move hi.s cow in Hie house with his family
and in-laws, and to report back within a week
as to how -things were going.
The cow was moved into the already cramp
ed quarters and things Went along smoothly,
ami at the end of the week
again made his report to the
preacher was told by the mountaineer that with
hi family, the cow and in-laws, that he and hi
I'aimlv were cramped more than ever in their
small living quarters, whereupon the preacher
told the farmer to go back home and move his
goal into the house. The farmer couldn't under
stand wiry, but went his way to move- in the
goat and to report back to the preacher within
That week-end he reported to the' preach-!
er and was told to move' the goat out and to
come hack next week and tell him how he I'd; .
Tire in xl week the 'fanner -returned to the
preacher smiling: saving that thing's were some

I lien returned home to take the cow Irom the
house and place her back in her stable.
After a week without Hie cow in t he house .
the larmer reioicuig went to the preacher and
said, "We ain't at all crowded now, with jtist
my lannlv ol lour and three ni-laws. everything
is all right now. and were cniovmg our in
laws. As we said before, there might not be much
to that story as far as truth is concerned, but

once a week --perhaps that is Hie true moral ol
