209 toward Hot Springs the road
. This bit of visitin', though, only
started down that route well fol
low some other time.
In the instant case we turned to
the left at James store. (Imagine
us being left-wingers, even ten
porarily!) Prior to that we had
smoothly enjoyable miles over the
sleek new highroad from Junaluska
down through Iron Duff and Crab
tree section. Past the scrumptious
new big school; loitering by the
rich fertility and general business'
likeness of the Glenn Palmer farm;
then up the hill in a long straight
line politely ignoring the tor
tuous turns and angles which made
np the old road.
Up and down with equal ease
then, there being nobody home at
James store, we left Highway 209
Have you been, lately, through
the Upper Fines Creek Valley 7
If not why not T It's a potent
prescription for that what's-wrong-
This is a valley of friendly
farmsteds. Substantial .: houses
in good repair. Trim yards well
"trimmed" with flowers, Barns all
straining at the seams from full
ness of feed stuffs and tobacco.
Knolls deeply carpeted with clover.
Cattle lazing in the shade. Sheep.
Country stores. An occasional
church spire and, all around, the
ascending hills with houses here
and there and well worn paths be
tween them testifying to the neigh
borliness of the Fines Creek folk.
At the next turn if you're a bit
squeamish about constantly wind
ing and unwinding maybe you'd
oeuer turn back cause we ve a
feeling that when they built the
road Irom here on they modeled
it with a snake instead of "meas
uring" it with a transit! We turned
'to the right on going-and will al
ways be thankful we did.
The road isnt. bad, honestly
what there is of it It's graveled
It stretches plenty but it spreads
very little. When you , meet the
lumber trucks you sort of ease by
while you hold your breath. Climb
ing on up into the hills singing with
color, looking back into the well
filled bowl, of the valley, soon one
is completely out of sight and sound
of human habitation.
Then there are miles of natural
beauty. If beauty to you means
the hush of the woods; the frag
rance of ferns; the flame of maples;
the gold of symmerical poplars;

When a Child Needs

so many users such satisfying re

Perhaps that's why It usually

MANS FALL Is very graphi
cally pictured in the third chap
ter of Genesis, which is part or to
day's lesson. After the creation,
the Lord placed Adam and Eve in
the beautiful garden of Eden, and
gave them command of all the
beasts, birds and fishes, and also
11 growing things of the garden.
They were to eat of the fruit of
all tne trees in the garden, save
only one. the "Tree of Knowl
edge," which stood in the middle
of the garden.
"But of the tree of knowledge
of good and evil, thou a halt not
eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou Shalt die," the
Lord told them.
The serpent of the garden, how
ever, being what the account calls
very "subtil." meaning probably
that the Evil spirit had entered
into it, tried to persuade Eve that
she should partake of the fruit of
this tree. Eve told him of the
Lord's command and the conse
quence of disobedience, but the
serpent answered, "Ye shall not
surely die. for God doth know
that on the day ye eat thereof,
then your eyes shall be opened,
and ye shall be as gods, knowing
good and evil."
Why Do We Listen 7'
Why do we listen to the tempter
when we know perfectly well we
will do wrong by following his
suggestions ? And why does the
evil one always know our weak
nesses and make his arguments
so appealing ? We do not know the
answer to thf.t. or to why after
having been given everything to
make her happy and her descend
ants after her for always. Eve
should have listened to this evil
counsel. But she did: she ate of
the fruit and gave some to Adam
and he ate.
And then something happened
to them. They had never worn
any clothes nor needed them, but
when they did this wrong thing
and disobeyed the Lord, they felt
naked -,'thed and made
themselves aprons of fig leaves.
Wicked disobedience makes us,
too, feel ashamed, not of our hu
man bodies, but of our spiritual
selves. That is part of the punish
ment that inevitably follows
Just then they heard the voice
.J.f the Lord as He walked in the
DWrlbutea ty King restorer "
garden in the cool of the day, and
they were afraid, and hid. The
Lord called Adam, and asked him,
"Where art yiou?" When Adam
came out, he told the Lord, "I
. heard thy voice in the garden,
and I was afraid, because I was
naked; and I hid myself."
There was no need to say more.'
The Lord knew what these two
had done, and when He asked
Adam about It he said, "The wom
an thou gavest me to be with, she
gave me of the tree, and I did
eat" He was not man enough to
acknowledge his own fault (like
so many of us), but tried to throw
the blame on Eve. And she, in
turn said the serpent had tempted
her and she also had eaten.
What punishment would have
been meted out if each had said,
"We knew better, we have sinned,
and will spend our lives trying to
atone"? They did not, and the
Lord told the serpent that hence
forth he would be cursed; he
should crawl upon his belly and
eat dust. Also there would al
ways be enmity between serpents,
and human beings
"I will put enmity between thee
and the woman, and between thy
seed and her seed; it shall bruise
thy head, and thou shalt bruise
Banished From Eden
Then the Lord told Eve that
henceforth she must bring forth
her children in pain and her sor
rows would be multiplied. And to
Adam He said, "cursed is the
ground for thy sake: in sorrow
shalt thou eat of It all the days
of thy life; Thorns also and this
ties shall it bring forth to thee;
and thou shalt eat the herb of the

thou eat bread, till thou return
