the names of those who can expect

keeping silent on the matter and
likely will not make any important
announcements along this line un
til after the legislature adjourns.

be hurt, it seems, and there is no

MEETING A meeting was held
in Raleigh recently to look into
that matter of the Speaker of the
House in the next Legislature. It
was a funny get-together and al
most wholly without precedent. It
did no good, so far as anyone is
aide t tell, except to start poli

would come out with a statement

place sewed up until that funny
meeting. There are many in the
Cherry camp who would like to
see Uzzell get it. Whatever you
may hear or read, George Uzzell
is a fine and able young man, but
so is Richardson. So, as they say

near the close of his life, we find
Vfoses laying down the law to his
people. He btgs them not to forget
the Lord their God who brought
them out of slavery In Egypt, ac
companied them In all their wan
derings, provided them with food,
and protected them In all ways.
Knowing them and human na
ture generally he was afraid that
when they were settled In new
home and grown rich and pros
perous, they would forget God
This fault Is not peculiar to the
ancient Jewish people or to any
particular race of men. It Is uni
versal. When success crowns our
efforts and we are wealthy and
happy, we all are quite likely to
forget God. We assume that pros
perity is the result of our own
cleverness, and are proud of our
selves. We do not even think of
those leaa fortunate than we, as
suming that If others are not
blessed It la their own fault.
Sorrow Brings Us to God
But when sorrow comes, then
we cry out to God to help us.
Luke tells us of a time when
Jesus waa talking about the spirit
ual things of life, and a man came
to Him to ask Him to apeak to his
brother about dividing an Inheri
tance with him. Jesus' answer waa
that the court should settle that
question. He was not the judge of
such matters. Turning to His dis
ciples He said:
"Take heed and beware of cov
etousness: for a man's life con
sisted not In the abundance of
things which he possesseth." And
then he told them a parable about
a man who prospered exceedingly.
His harvest was so great that he
tore down his barns and built
larger ones and prepared to enjoy
a life of ease, but that very night
he died and his riches were of no
good to him. He had worked hard
and grown wealthy, but apparent
ly had not considered that his
wealth was a trust and should
have been used, at least in part.

Jesus also told another parable,
how a certain rich man went to a
far country leaving his 10 serv
ant In charge. To each he gave a
pound and told them to carry on
while he waa gone. When he re
turned the first told him he had
now ten pounds In place of one;
the aecond had five pounds; the
third said he had put his pound in
a napkin for fear he should lose it
and be punished, so he had noth
ing but the pound which had been
entrusted to him. The first was
praised and given ten cities over
which to rule, the second was to
rule over five cities, and the third
was relieved of the one pound to
which he had clung in fear.
First Is Real ChrisUaa
The first could be likened to the
Christian who takes his blessings
and diligently multiplies them;
does not waste his time In idleness
and sin, but lives a full life of
thankfulness and charity. The sec
ond does the same, but In lesser
degree, and the third Is he who
lives In fear, and does not dare
trust his Master and strive to mul
tiply the trust that has been given
Into his hands.
