» Man, made in the image of God, is
always, as should bo, seeking for
e happniess, Since the first man, men
have sailed the ships of their dream; ,
} seeking the harbor of happiness. In
I this search, which goes forever on,
great discoveries are made for the ad
i vancement of mankind. Some pass on
before happiness is found and others
take their places at the wheel and on'
j end on the quest continues. It will al- j
,! ways continue just so long as its ideals j
f are high.
t ! Man, in his quest for better things,
uses his helpmates. Art, which is of
' his spirit; science, which is of Ais
t jf 1
mind; ahd industry which is of his
i flesh; play the mportant parts in
bringing, to the doors of millions every
I where a message of a standard of
j | higher living.
What a great privilege it is to have
B ! u body, mind and soul bearing the
j| image of God; and given the power
to enlist* those things necessary to
make a life complete. And he who
, I appreciates these things, 'is -looking
i forward into the future to learn and
to welcome whatever life may brinp
in each new day.
But with all tfie great things man

I grapes, apples, corn, cotton and every
thing else, man through the things
God has given him power to enlist,
contributes only 5 per cent. The 95
per cent comes direct from heaven.
