Mr. Charlie Gillespie has pur

to the delight of all the.boyij in the

The, older people tell us It was no
rare sight to see one riding a jinrty
when they were young, but to the
younger folks it is unusual. This
particular jinny is stubborn, doesn't
like to start nor stop once it gets
started, and kicks. But the children
are usually so close it can't get a
hard kick so no one gets hurt.
The hunters ?, are having . some
good sport o'possum hunting, and
the trappers are making some &pod
catches; for instance, Robert
Gravely set four traps one day. The

[THE PRAYER CORNER
; FORGIVING AND FORGIVEN
This is the time of the year wh^n
the appeal of the apostle should
come home to every heart.
"Ei'et all bitterness and wrath, and ]
anger, clamor and ey'ilspeaking be ,
put away from you wtth all malicdK
AnH be ye . kind one to another,
tender* hearted, -forgiving one "an
other, ever as God for Christ's sake
hath forgiven you."
"Of him that hopes to be fp,rgiv
en," says Samuel Johnson, "it is in-'
dispenably requirdd that he for
give, , It is therefore supferflous to
urge any other motive. On this great
duty Eternitjr is suspended, and to
him that' refuses to purchase it, the
Throne of Mercy is- inaccessible apd
the Saviour of the World is born in
vain." . /
Cherish then a forgiving spirit, my
friend, do no't allpw yourself to'
bear a grudge or harbor an unkind
thought against any one; bury all
unpleasant feelings beneath^' the
leaves and snow, fle?ply let thepi be
hidden away no mote to wake, - and
haunt cyou. Christ had more to for
give than you, but he bqrp no ill
will toward those who persecuted ,.
Him. . ?, *
What will it matter in a few
brief years if some one injured your
pride, or hurt yoijr feeling's? Better
overlook it and forgive it; life is so
(short. Would you want to stand face, .
to face with your Lord* and be .
obliged to say, ."Master, I am un- ;
v/orthy a place in Thy. Kingdom be
cause I could not forgive?" ,
