THE PRAYER CORNER
.'Bitter -4 Sweet
Your share and mine. God has
divided it out for us, "and then
watches to see how we will accept
it, how make use of it. Some bitter

with the/ bjooming flowers', some
shadows with the glowing sun, but
He has given it from His Hand Di
vine. What of the submissive heart
that received a bitterer daught than
yours ? What did it do? Took the
cup that God gave quaffed t<f its |
bitter dregs, and stood *)e- j
neath His chastening rod, subdued J
but not cast down, "why art thou
cast down, 9 my soul, and why art'
thou disquieted within me?" !
There are briars besetting my
That call for patient care, ^ ?
There i8 a cross for every lot,
And an earnest need for prayer
But the lowly heart that leans oh ,
Thee is happy anywhere.
This is our common lot ? the bit
ter with the sweet, and if we can
drink of this cup unmurmuringly
from the Hand of God, He wilj give
us the blessed victory f over self,
Which is the beginning pi the new
Life. In this happier . and higher
state, we shall accept thankfully His
Wise Decree, and with humble sub
mission say "Thy Will Be Done."
We sh&ll then be enabled to comfort
other hearts, and whisper words of
consolation to thbse, who have <eai;n ?
ed the discipline of sorrow.
Pray for the holier cup while sweet
with bitter lies blending,
Tears in the cheerful eye, smiles' on >'
the Borrowing ' cheek,
Death expiring in life, when the
long drawn struggle is ending, j
Triumph and joy to/ the strong,
strength to the weary and weak, i
\ Prayer I
O thou merciful and gracious One
We know that 'in our cup of life the ,
bitter jand the sweet jire'mingled. It
is our cottrtnon lot,' and if* we can
drink of our cup of life the bitter
with the -sweet, unmurmuringly^, as
from Thy Hand Thou wilt give ,v.u^
the blessed victory over self whicTr
is the 'begiiming of the new Life. In

Help us, O Thou most merciful

throw ourselves on Thee. Sure of
Thy Love, and oh sure of thy mercy ^
at last. Bitter and deep though the ?
draught may we not shun the cup
of thy trial, but in its healing effect, '
smile at its bitterness past. And '
this we ask in the name of Him who
for the jpy <that was set before Him,
endured the cross, despising the
shame, Our blessed Lord and Savior

The M&thatasian Club held "ts
first meeting of the new club year j
at the, home of Mrs. E. H. Norwood !
on Probarte Ave. last' Thursday. The
meeting was a business one. There
was first a joint meeting of the club
with the executive committee of the
Betterment Associataion to appoint
committees and perfect arrange
ments for the Art Exhibit which
will be given at the High School
Building Sept. 27-30.
Upon completion of these arrange- ,
ments the club work was taken up.
The programs for the year's work
were distributed. The first study
meeting will be on Oct 9. Mrs. C.
B. Deaver will be the hostess.
Mrs. Oliver H. Orr, the new presi
dent, gave an interesting account of
the recent meeting of the club presi
dents of the district which was held
Plans were discussed for n full at

' 1 . j
Recognizing the educational ad
vantages to tye derived from oppor
tunities to see good art, the Matha
tasian Club( Betterment Association.
the schools have arranged with
tKe Elson Art Publication Co., Inc.,
of Belmont, Mass., for an art exhi
bition of two hundred pictures to be
held in High School Building Sept.
This collection, consisting in large
part of carbon photographs, phto
gravures arid prints\ in ful) color,
made directly from the original mas
terpieces, is selected by art experts
and should attract large crowds. A
small admission will be charged,, the
entire, proceeds of which, after' de
ducting the expense of the'' exhibit
?will be used in the purchase of pic
tures for wall decoration. The pur-"
pose of the exhibition is thus clear
First ? To give^ people an oppor
tunity to see a collection of the"
Nworld's famous masterpieces of
paintihg, sculpture, and architec
ture. - . ( ? ? ' '
Second ? -To make it possible for/
the_ public schools to own,n few of
these pictures. . 1 .
Why tehould this exhibit interest
Because, throughout the country, t
people are awakening to the impor- j
tance and value of good arts as crea- |
tive of a refining influencte and in- j
spiring atmosphere ? and just so
surely a/ people become familiar
With the best art, just so quickly will
the crude in art be .displaced through
appreciation ? of something bet^r. It
is, of course, idle to suppose . '"that
one shall become a competetnt judge
of art simply through, studying for
a time photographs ox prints.
But what can and should be ob
tained is a large measure of 'appre
ciation. A work of art which is
really great will bey reproduction,
and even thoUgh this may not pos
sess the pleasure-giving power of
the original in a gallery three thou
sand miles away, that measure of
power which it does possess is welO
worth taking, I
One of the leading art critics of ,
our own, John C. Van, Dyke, sa^s: I
"You must look at pictures stu- ,
diously, earnestly, honestly. It will ,
take years before you can come to
a full appreciation of it, but- when
at last you have you will be posses
Bed of one of the purest, loftiest and
most ennobling pleasures that the
world can offer you." ,
, One %reat object of picture study
is that of Opening the eyes to the .
beauty all around which an ai^st's
trained eye perceives, while it is j
misaed*fcy others. This is the essen
tial service of all great men ? to
draw us up . in some measure to their
own level of insight, enjoyment, and
These pictures are of interest to
both yotlng and old, and they are
expected to attract and instruct
large numbers of people. v Every
one should come.
NEW BOY'S CAMP BEING BUILT
