Going Some Place
The following editorial from the Reids
ville Review has food of thought on the
subject of "Purpose and Destination:
"In a short time many people will be
on the way to spend Christmas at home
with family and friends. Railway trains,
buses and airplanes will be crowded. Also
hundreds of thousands of -automobiles
will crowd the highways. Everyone of the
travelers will have a destination in mind.
Some of them probably will travel over
unfamiliar routes. They will inquire a
bout the shortest route but even so may
find it necessary to detour. Railway trains,
buses and airplanes may be delayed.
Some of them will be re-routed because
of storms and accidents but the destina
tion will not be changed. Nearly every
body who tavels has a destination in mind
but occasionally an aimless traveler, one
who goes from place to place without
fixed purpose or clearly defined purpose,
is encountered. .
"What would anyone think of a person
who traveled that way or of one who
started on a journey without adequate
preparation? The choice of a route, mon
ey enough to pay for the necessary and
probable cost of the journey, knowledge
of hour of departure and arrival, gasoline
and oil in the automobile and many other
items essential for small preparation
readily occur to the mind. In a sense eve
ryone is on a journey. Poets and imagina
tive writers frequently liken life to a
journey?the journey of life.
"A journey implies a destination but in
the journey of life not everyone seems to
have a fixed destination. For that rea
son there is aimless living?no purpose,
no objective, no destination. Where and
how do they plan Or expect to arrive?
"Success in business is a desirable des
tination that arrival is dependent upon a
carefully chosen route, adequate prepa
ration and determination to keep the des
tination ever in view even though long
and difficult detours may be forced by
temporarily discouraging condition s.
rhere is destination for groups, organi
zations and communities as well as for
"Some details and incidentals must be
changed to meet the varying conditions
which arise unexpectedly but the purpos
es to arrive in prosperity, happiness and I
contentment for all must be held in view
clearly and constantly."
The "mother" of the American Christ
mas Seal was the late Miss Emily P. Bis
sell of Wilmington, Del., who designed the
first Christmas Seal and put on the first
Seal Sale in this country.
To be perfectly just is an attribute of
the divine nature; to be so to the utmost
of our abilities, is the glory of man.
Divine Providence has grapted this gift
to man, that those things which are hon
est are also the most advantageous.?
Raleigh political observers suggest
Governor Scott may be softening a bit m
his approach to non-zealots for the Go
Forward Program. Well, we don't believe
he ever attempted to use a meat-axe, but
maybe he closed his hay-fork a bit in
pitching.?Greensboro Daily News.

High Point, N. C., Route %
Among different things that people
lose as they go through life oftentimes is
that of opportunities. We realize that an
opportunity that is good and worth while,
if unaccepted is soon lost, never to return.
We are now thinking of the great and
precious opportunities people have all a
bout us of attending church and Sunday
school, and of getting to God, which are
being neglected. It is alarming how many
people all over the land never enter a
church door. Even parents neglect the
church and fail to take their children.
So many boys and girls are growing up
in our midst without Christ, whose par
ents are likewise sinners, and seem to
care nothing for the church and the sal
vation of their souls. It is indeed pathetic.
What does the future hold for parents
and children who never go to church,
and who care nothing about the Christian
religion? Surely the consequences will be
fearful. O that such opportunities would
be appreciated and accepted:
Then we believe the church is losing
precious and priceless opportunities of
going out and bringing in many who are
too careless about themselves and their
families. If many of our churches would
become deeply interested in the lost a
bout us as they should, and would go
forth praying and working for such sduls,
and would get them into Sunday school,
and to church, and would seek to lead
them to Christ, we do not doubt but that
thousands could be won who are on the
broad road hellward. No doubt the church
is largely to blame for so much non
church attendance, and for so many lost
souls. Many of our church members never
go out to invite those to church who don't
attend. They never put forth an effort to
win them to Christ. What will the Master
say to those who never seek to win souls,
even though they profess to be Christian.
Go out and invite your neighbor to church
who never attends. Look around you and
count those who are non-church goers and
who are in sin, and see how many you
can get to church and Sunday school, and
how many you can lead to Christ. Lost
opportunities never return. Don't let them

FROM THE OLD MILL STREAM
Most of the industry in our Piedmont Carolinas
was "down by the Old Mill Stream" when this cen
The rains came, and sometimes the little riverside
plant went out with the flood.
Then adventuresome engineers began to turn
power wasting at falls and shoals into electricity.
They transmitted It to towns located a safe dis
tance from the rivers. Factories increased, and
their loss by flood ended.
They increased so fast, in fact, that such river
sites as could be reached and profitably developed
were "used up." Too, it was found that, in time
of drought, streams proved inadequate to power
needs in the awakened Piedmont.
In the 1920's, facilities for steam generation were
begun and have continued steadily until today
they provide most of the power delivered by the
Duke System. In our present expansion program,
one plant alone* will produce more than one-sixth
as much power as was used last year in all the ter
ritory served by the Duke Power Company.
