The Bible Story ? Ruth EDITOR'S NOTE: This is one of a series from the Old Testament. The text is condenspd from selee (ions by Houston Harte for the new book, "In Our linage." Illus tration by Guy Rowe also from the book. NOW THERE was a famine in the land. And a certain man went to sojourn in Moab. he Elimelech, and his .wife Naomi, and his two sons Mahlon and Chilion. And they came into Moab, and con tinued there. And her two sons tool? wives of the women of Mo ab: one was Orpah. and the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years. A id Mahlon and Chilion died also; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband. Then she arose to return unto the land of Judah. And Naomi said to her daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother's house: The Lord grant that ye may find rest, each in the house of her hus band. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept. And Orpah kissed her mo ther in law; but Kuth clave unto her. And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back: return thou after thy sister in law. And Ruth said, In! real me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me. So they two went and came to Beth lehem in the beginning of barley harvest. AND NAOMI had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, aid his name was Boa/. Ana huth the Moabitess said unto I Naomi. Let me now go and glean ears of corn after the reapers. And she said. Go. my daughter. I And she went: and her hap was! to light on the field belonging unto) Boaz. And Boaz came, and said to his ? 1 servant that was set over the reap- j ' ers, Whose damsel is this? And ! the servant answered, It is the | ; Moabitish damsel that came back I with Nadmi out of Moab. Then ! I said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou ! j not, my daughter? Go not to glean i ! in another field, but abide here | fast by my maidens. So she glean j ed in the field until even, and beat ! I out tfiat she had gleaned: and it j was about an ephah of barley, j And she went into the city: and j j her mother in law said. Where j 1 hast thou gleaned today? And she | | said, with Boaz. And Naohii said. Blessed be he of the Lord, who hath not left off his kindness to | the living and to the dead. | THEN NAOMI said unto her. My daughter, shall I not seek rest j for thee, that it may be well with 1 ! thee? And is not Boaz of our kin dred. with whose maidest thou^ ; wast? Behold, he winnoweth bar j ley tonight in the threshing floor. | | Wash thyself therefore, and an- j J oint thee, and get thee down to ' the floor: but make not thyself i known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drink ing. And when he lieth down, thou shalt mark tA- place where; he shalg|?e, and thon shalt go in, : and unqM?pr his feet, and lay ihee j down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do. And she went down unto the ? floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her. AND AT MIDNIGHT, the man i turned and. behold, a woman lay j THE LITTLE COUNTRY CHURCH To a Country Parson He gained no post of prominenee In priestly realm ? nor did he ask That prelates grand in conference Should grant to him the favored Task; but as he labored near the sod. Men looked on him and thought of God. No temple his with cloistered wall And spires searching out the clouds ? No costly chimes to sound the call Of worship to the worldly crowds: But. when he spoke, men paused to hear. And sensed a holy spirit near. No swarming masses thronged his pews, Nor urged the aisles to speak his fame; No flaming headlines in the news Gave to his sermon wide acclaim; But, when he preached the word to men, Hearts found the Christ, and lived again. Through years of glad unselfish toil, And service free, he gave his all; He dwelt with those who tilled the soil, And waited for his Master's call ? Through fertile field, o'er hallowed clod, A country parson walked ? with God. ? By J. Shenton Lodge Rev. H. L.

Davis, the vice president. the Rev. J. R. Davidson, presided at the January meeting of the Carteret County Ministerial association Monday morning at the civic center. Morehead City. The Rev. Priestley Convers led the devotional, reading Rphesians 2:1-10. His subject was "The Meaning of Christian Grace." That Paul was combatting the le galism of his day. emphasizing "Salvation by Grace" over against "Salvation by human effort," was pointed out by the speaker. It is the custom of the associ ation to have a topic presented by a member at each meeting, follow ed by a period of discussion when all members may participate. Fol louing this custom, the Rev. T. R. Jenkins, minister at Ann Street Methodist church. Beaufort, read a paper on "The Makings of A Good Minister of Jesus Christ." Mr. Jenkins stated that a minis ter should (1) possess a sterling character, seeking to live a life above reproach; (2) be a scholar, especially of the Bible; (3) stand for something and not only "against" things; (4) love people, friends and foes; (5) preach the truth in love, positively; (6) prac tice ethical principals at all times. After the presentation of this paper a helpful discussion of com mon problems of the minister was held. After the reading and approval of the minutes of the last meeting problems relating to the work of the association were discussed. The Rev. W. D. Caviness stated that he had sent copies of his let ter "Christmas Before Thanksgiv ing." to the following papers, in addition to the Carteret Countv NEWS-TIMES: (1) The Charlotte News: (2) The Greensboro Daily News; (3) The News and Observ er; (4) The New Bern Sun Journ al; (5> The North Carolina Christ ian Advocate. This was in fulfil ment of a request of the associa tion. made last month. The time for "The Church of the Air" (morning devotions! over WMBL was discussed. Because several people have stated their desire to have this program at an earlier hour, the association voted to move it up sometime between the hours of 8 and 9 o'clock if this arrangement can be worked out satisfactorily with the local radio station. The, meeting concluded with prayer by the Rev. L. C. Chandler, Atlantic. L. A. Tilley, Secretary Ministerial Association at his feet. And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman. And he said, Blessed i be thou of the Lord, my daughter; for thou hast shewed more kind ness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou fol lowedst not young men, whether poor or rich. And now, my daugh ter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest; for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman. AND BOAZ TOOK RUTH, and she was his wife: and the Lord gave her conception, and she bare a son. And the women said unto Nuomi, Blessed be the Lord, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel. And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him. And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it. And they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David. The peanut, a member of the pea family, is a Native of Brazil.

I Thes salonians 5:17. (Read I.ulte II: 1-S.) In Korea, a missionary was stricken with a serious contagious disease. For several weeks, she could not lift her head of( tiie pil low. But she could pray. In su?h an outstanding way were her pray ers answered that a Korean helper said, "You had better stay in bed all your life." The missionary's comment was, "Must we go to bed to tike time for prayer?" A Korean Christian patriot who had been kept in solitary confine ment for 25 months without even a Bible to read, cami out with a smile and a triumphant testimony. He had been praying without ceasing. He was too much for the Japanese military; they had power over his body but none over hi> spirit. Whether we recline upon a bed because of illness, whether we are seized and persecuted for our faith and beliefs as Christians, or whether we move about as free men among men. we can "pray without ceasing." PRAYER Forgive ua for our neglect of prayer, oar Father. Give us faith to realise the possibilities In pray er. Grant us the desire to pray without ceasing. For Jesus' sake. Amen. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY To pray without ceasing is Bible wisdom for my guidance. Oelen I. Billings (Philippines) Haitians Asked to Drop Schools From Nailing List The Russian Embassy, Washing ton, D.
