Paul rr asks local associations to take up the matter again with the con from their 1 resoective dis tricts.

Charlotte-Asheville .highway is assur ed, and that at no distant date; That was the concensus of . opinion express ed here after a ,most enthusiastic meeting of the Wilmington-Charlotte- Aahevllle Highway . Association, ; for merly the Wilmington-Charlotte High way Association. The name of r the association went Into effect immediately after the meet ing convened in the courthouse, and with it was launched a much more am- Ditlous project than that which prompted the formation of the associ atlon in the first place. The idea to link up the mountains with the ocean has been taking firm hold in the minds of '"the officials and members of the association, and with the expressed willingness of the western counties to come into the association, the idea crystallized into action and the change was made. Delegates from practically all of the 15 counties embraced in the pro posed route of the big highway were present for the meeting, and enthusi asm was most marked, from the time the band played the first stirring air and Col. T. L. Kirknatrick. chairman of the association, rapped for. order, until the last speech was made, and W A.

HOUSEHOLD CONVENIENCES. The skillful worker in any business always keeps up-to-date tools, for he knows he will thus In crease his efficiency. Th efficient housewife alsa " knows that time, strengt and temper are lost by using old, worn-out and cumbersome utensils. Why use dull paring and carving knives when .a i ' small sharpener can bt bought which . will keep all cutting tools in good order? If there is any one thing which will cause one to iise strong language It is a dull carving knife. 4 A tray to remove food and dishes from the dining table or to carry it to the table Is a great saving of steps. If one' cannot afford to buy a wheeled tray or tea wagon get the handy man to make you one, using the small wheels from an old gocart. .' A wire dish drainer is light and can be used as a tray if no other Is at hand, for It Is easy, to carry. , Paper or wooden trays or platet make fine' dishes to use In the ice box. for tliey do not break and" may be re newed often at little expense. Paper, of all kinds saves dish wash ing. Wipe out the greasy dishes with a piece of soft paper before-putting them Into the dish water. Keep the table wiped up with paper, saving the dishcloth for stains and grease. A kitchen table covered with zinc oi some hard surface that does not need scouring to keep clean Is a most neces sary kitchen convenience. Some, good scales, a good clock, n kitchen cabinet with everything at hand to . use in cookery, are all necessary equipment' Keep a bottle of kerosene near, the sink, and when it Is dry wipe out with a cloth dampened with kerosene; it will keep clean without scouring. Re peated, scourings with various cleanh? ; powders will ruin the surface, so thai It becomes, rougn and stains easily. Have a stool that will '' si ip undet the table when, notneeded and.use II to st on while preparing vegetable or doing many kinds of work. It will be found . a great saving on tired feet One can learn to wash and wipe dishei and Iron sitting on a stool. Have ; a. rune on which to rest . the - feet to change one's position. A small, simple' old ' rocking chair In the kitchen will save many a break down. Drop into It while doing, . ya rlous things, and relax when .possible.

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.

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).
