BREVARD, Njt^C. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER, 3, 1922
(By Rev. C. D. Chapman)
The Christian way to resist the
strife of tongues is with love. If any
one speaks evil of you say. something
good of him in return. If the other
person is angry, keep patient and
* sweet: If another has bitter words
to say of an absent person, your task
is to say a kind word for him. It was
Btiid of Starr King that if any one did
him an unkindness, or aiaid a hard or
bitter word ol him, that was the very
man he loved. His heart went out to
him in yearning, an^ he would find
ways to conquer him b^ love.
That is what it is to be a Christian.
That is the Christian way to quarrel—
throw roses for stones; overcome evil
with good. Oh for a ihurch that
would honestly try this way of living
with people! If your rights are not
quite respected — Why, no matter!
Just keep on loving. Love is the
great secret refuge from the strife of
tongues. — Miller.
Our Heavenly Father help us al
ways to resist the strife of tongues
with love. If anyone speak evil of
us, help us to say something good in
. If is angry, help us to keep
patient and sweet. If another has
bitter wards to say of one absent,
help us to speak a kind ^ord for that
Give us gi'ace, O Father, to obey
th&»command of the Lord Jesu^ to
love our enemies, if we havefany,
^ bless them tKut hate us, and pray for
them which despitefully use us, and
persecute us, that we may be Thy
children, who maketh Thy sun to rise
on the evil and the good, and scind-
eth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Help us to keep on loving, for love
is the Christian way. We ask it in
the name of Him who loved us and
gave ' Himself for us: J^ns Christ,
Son, our Lord,a men^ C. D.

Raleigh, N. C., October 30i — The
44th annual Negro State Fair was the
chief attraction in Raleigh last week.
It was fonAally opened by President
Berry O’Kelly, of the North Carolina
Industrial Society, who praised the
State for its high progress in negro
education. He congratulated his
race on the excellent, exhibits and for
the evidences of progress along var
ious lins of endeavor, suggesting that
if the negroes would only help them
selves there would be no excuse for a
poor school for colored children in the
The big event of the weak was the
address on Thursday of Marcus Gar
vey, provisional President of the un
formed Republic of Africa and titular
ruler of four hundred millions of
negroeSvOf the world. Perhaps 1,500
heard President Garvey and a big
percentage of them applauded his ut
terances. He spoke eloquently and
temperately, imploring his fellow ne
groes to cease abusing a race that had
befriended them and get out and dc
something for themselves that wou'.J'
prove to the world that they were noi
an inferior race of slaves. The
speaker frankly told his hearers that
the Southern white man had been anc'
still is the only real friend the negro
has in the world, and that the North
ern white who denounced the South
for negro oppression is a liar.'
Garvey’s plea was for a united nes-
co race determined to set up a govern
ment of their own on the continent
in which t^e Creator had first placed
them, where they might work out a
civilization they could call their own.
He claS^BO^ represent the fifteen
inillion 'Negroes in America, 25 mil
lion in South Amrica and the West
Indies, 2285 million in Africa and 75
million in India, for whom he propos
ed to establish a government that
could really speak for the race. H^
invited all the intelligent and industri
ous negroes to Africa, but wanted
none of the shiftless ones. He told
his crowd that the negro is not wanted
on either of the American continents,
Australia, Europe or Asia and that
the time had come for them to get
together and build; that the white
man did not like them because they
had never done anything'for them
The white man, said the speaker,
does not like a dependent and Iwrvile
race; that while Abraham Lincoln
struck the shackles from their bodies
he could not strike the sKiackles from
the gray matter in their heads. He
was utterly opposed to race equality,
declaring that he did not want to as
sociate with a man who was opposed
to associating with him. “This is a
white man’s country,” he ^ent on.
“He took it from a weaker race and
built himself a great civilization. I
don’t blame them for not wanting a
negro president in the' White house,
and if ever there is a presidiit in Afri
ca I want him to look like me.
Both white and colored, who heard
the speech, were amazed at Garvey’.'
eloquence and utterances, but enjoy
ed it immensely. The speaker did
not call for volunteers and no apprec
iable number of negroes who heard

That the family, the home, is the
most fundamental institution among
humans is recognized in the fifth com
mandment, “Honor thy father and thy
mother, that thy days may be long
upon the land which the Lprd thy God
giveth thee.” The home is the basis
of the nation., As are the nation’s
homes so is the nation. The nation’s
character is the sum of the character
of its homes.
In the home there must be the prop
er exercise of authority, and the prop
er submission to authority, before
these can exist in the nation’s govern
ment. The improper use of author
ity here means its proper use in gov
ernment. Right relations in the
home is the basis of right relations to
government, to society, and to God.
The members of a family'can not be
wholly right with God when the prin
ciples of this commandment are viol
ated. Right relations between par
ents and children shadow forth right
re'ations between God and the Christ
ian. . Right relations among the child
ren in a home show what the relations
should be among the children of God.
The first four commandments deal
with man’s relations with God; while
the last five deal with' his relations
man - ward. The fifth is the link be
tween the two, dealing with our re
lations both toward God and toward
man. So the commandment is ex
ceedingly fundamental. All are und
er authority. If we rebel against
authority in the home then we are not
apt readily to yield to. the authority
of God, and the chances are that wc
^11 be breakers of the'law of the
I. THE MEANING OF THE COM
MANDMENT TO THE CHILD:
'Kq honor means to attach weight
to; to put in the place of superiority;
to hold in high opinion; to reverence,
in the best sense of that word. How
may the child honor parents? 1. By
obedience. The child’s first love is
toward his parents, and for- the first
few years his parents are the greatest
people in the world to him. How
gracious is the command to obey those
whom he loves so ardently! Love i?
here, as evef^here, the fulfilling of
2. By consideration. The older
children are not supposed to be under
the same authority as when younger,
and parents should give considerable
liberty to them. The older child may
honor his parents by being consider
ate of their wishes. How much lib
erty may the older children TAKE U
what they should think of. The par
ents* wishes as to the company they
should keep; the hours they may stay
out at night; the places of amusement
to which they go; should be consider
ed by the older children. The home
is still that of the parents, and their
wishes in the home should have prime
3. By reverence. " The children, in
the home, or after they have gone,
should ever regard their parents as
having done, more for them than \ anj
one else can possibly do; as having
loved them with a deeper love; and as
having had their intecests at heart in
ways impossible to others. Honor
them by so reverencing their teach
ings that you will mold your conduct
in conformity to them: honor them ^
speaking of them in tsn lor and n-
fectionate ..terms, and reverencing
their wisdom. In th’> take the exam
