WLL "DO THEIR BIT.":
EXTENSION SERVICE AT WORK
Importance of Silo Construction to Be
Stressed in Every County During
Months of June, July, August,
That the fairs still continue to bo
nopular type of extension work ; is
evident from the letters which are be
rpecived by Mr. S. G. Rubinow,
chairman of the fair committee, of the
extension service, from county farm
f .n(j home demonstration agents, field
workers and the representatives ot
various commercial organizations who
are co-operating to organize fairs. Al
most eevry letter received from the
county agents indicates that ? there
will be at least four community fairs
in pach organized county in .North
Carolina this fall.
The railroads are expressing a great
deal of inteerst in fair work, and are
asking for lists of the special, district,
rounty, community and negro fairs to
he held, so that they may co-operate
in every direction. The newspapers
and agricultural magazines are also
showing their interest in this work.
The extension service has secured
the assistance of Mr. J. H. Helton who
will work for the animal industry di
vision in aiding farmers to build silos
during June, July and August Mr.
Helton will be attached to the office
of beef, cattle and sheep, and will be
especially interested in constructing
silos on those farms where these kinds
of livestock are being raised." He will
"begin work June 1. Those who . need
liis assistance and advice in building
a silo on their farm should write to
the animal industry division at an
early date, so that he may arrange a
complete itinerary. ' " "

and Its Rewards. , , . . . .
INTERMEDIATE TOPIC When ta
Obey and How..
SENIOR AND ADULT ? TOPIC Obedl-
nee a Test of Discinleshin.
I. A Notable Example of Obedience
At the command of God Abraham
went out not : knowlne whither he
went (Heb. 11:8): His was not. the
obedience of convenience or prudence.
To separate from home and kindred
and take up the life of a pilgrim was
not easy. .Abraham did not stop 'to
ask why, or ; what he would get out
of It The obedience that asks why ,
Is not obedience at all. -, v
II. The" Motive of .Obedience (John "
14:21-24). . r ;.
The grand incentive of obedience :
Is love to od. The obedience that is
the result of fear or thc hope of re
ward is not true obedience, therefore
has not the approval of , God. , Only
the child who reverejices his . father :
and affectionately strives to obey him ,
enjoys his loving favor. The pbedl- '
ence which springs out of a heart of
love issues in a life of joy and friend-
ship with God (John 15:10-14). . .. ,
III. The Solemn Obligation of. Obe- '
dience (Matt 7:16-29). .
1. Warnings against false prophets
(w. 15-20). ,. , , . ;
(1) Their real existence Ever since
God has had a people, false prophets
and teachers . have appeared . among
them. This need not surprise us, for
Christ predicted that such should ..be j
the case. ! j , .
(2) Their nature (v. 15). (a) Hypo
critical. The devil does his most suc
cessful work by masquerading as an
angel of light (n Cor. 7:14, 15).. His
minis'ters appear, in this"way.and turn
people from the narrow to 4he: broad
way.' (b) This Is suggested, by; their
being "ravening wolves."N. It, is when
the wolf is in sheep's, clothing that he
does his most destructive work. The
enemies of Christ posing as his min
isters are most destructive. : .; .'
(3) The unfailing test (f v. .16-18). '
Their fruits. If one gives sufficient ,
time for' development the fruit; can be "
discerned. Every ' tree bears Its - own
kind of fruit Nature Is inexorable In
her law as to this. You may search
the universe in vain for' an excep'tion.
It is equally true In the spiritual ,
world. There Is a vital connection '
between the faith of a heart and i the .
fruit of a life. That which comes out
in the conduct was first in ibe heart.
A right heart is essential to right con
duct Give the false teachers : suffi-.
cient time and observe closely and yon
will" find that their lives will prove
the teaching." r . - ' ;. -
(4) Their end (v. 19). All false
teachers shair finally be punished by,,
being cast Into the fire. Although God
bears long he will see to It" that this
wickedness d&es not go on forever, w, ,
