THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER

The day was a fugitive from a
poem. Adequate description of the
long familiar place we went would
read like a story of the promised
Vnr it' over Pisreon way we've
been this trip and from whichever
entrance you traverse that Valley
the drive is a beautiful adventure,
We came out from Canton-
amazed at the growth of the High
land Park section of town and at
the prevalence of new homes out
side the city limits. If you haven't
come that longer-way-round lately
we earnestly urge that you try
it to refresh your recollection
Warm, rich and mellow is the
air helping to make this a land
"flowing with milk and honey."
For the great elliptical plain of
Pigeon Valley we ve always had
a warm spot in our hearts because
there we first came to know West
ern North Carolina.
From where -we boarded it was
fascinating to watch , the snow
"paint" little cabins into pictures
tiny homes we'd never suspocted
were there until white blankets
covered their roofs. We were shown
one, high on the mountain side,
where an old crippled woman lived
alone, hoe-ing in her crop without
help and walking with the aid of
a cane and crutch, more than two
miles down a rocky trail to have
her corn ground.
The sharp contrast between such
farming and the deep tractor
plowing which is the order of the
day for the up-to-the-minute agri
culturists of the bottom land; be
tween that steep trail and the con
crete highway, gave us a graphic
picture of the Carolina that was
and is and a vivid idea of what it
As Spring came we used to walk
to the turn from which we had an
unobstructed view across the Os
borne farm and the fields beyond
and it seemed as if The Master
Weaver took a ' special pride in the
green "broadloom" carpet He un
rolled across the level "floor."
The pleasant 'and prosperous
Pigeon Valley-ites enjoy many ad
vantages. For instance that's the
one spot around these parts al
ways dead certain to produce wa
termelons! We're going to angle
for a very personal invitation to
isit the Weaver Cathey place
come melon time again. When a
man has so many melons he feeds
'em to his hogs it surely wouldn't
b too pig-ish of us to hint for our
fill. Think soT ,
Down all the by-roads along the
river are splendidly improved farms
and homes that are new have the
same quiet dignity as those that
have sheltered many- generations
of the same family. In fact quiet
dignity seems the pervading
spirit of the locality. -
Of the more venerable home
steads none is more interesting to
us than the Terrell place, with its
big brick house and store build
ing facing each other across the
road along which wagon trains
once hauled all imports and ex
ports of the Valley folk and their
go up to Beech.' Cap or on up the
left fork to Pisgah well do that
soon but to come back across the
new section of highway that points
as the crow 'flies-r-reveling in the
misty mauve shadows of the hills
beyond and the rugged grim-ness
sf Plott Balsam as we topped the
rise that just "sorta" lifts a fel
low riirht out of himself.
When we got to the spring the
club women, some years ago, made
into such a delightful spot for
hesitating or for . picnicing but
which is now sadly neglected we
had to stop and "drink deeply" of

road as it winds through the or
The new stretch at this end seem
ed all the nicer and there is interest
and a different-ness all along its
miles. Truck farms; plant spe
cialists; dense evergreen growth.
Near where we boarded in that
back-there time was a man with
a car who taxied us sight-seeing oc
casionally. Who, by the way, would
invariably inquire "Where is it

deep cut of the newly located high

15:4, "Abide in me, and I In you.")
WHEN JESUS talked to his
disciples or the people who crowd
ed around to hear him, He did not
use large words or talk to them
of things with which they were
unfamiliar. He never talked "over
their heads" as far as His use of
words or descriptions went. Al
ways He used stories and illustra
tions of things that they could
For instance, in His talk to His
disciples on the Thursday evening
of Passion week, in Jerusalem,
when He told them: "I am the
true vine, and My Father is the
The gra-e vine was very com
mon in Palestine, end using It as
an illustration of their union with
Him and His Father was a simple
and perfectly understandable il
lustration of what He was trying
to tell them. He was the vine, His
disciples were the branches which
should bear fruit. If they were
branches of His vine, they were
part and parcel of Him. His life
would be flowing through them,
and He was not complete without
them, and they could not live
God the Father is the keeper of
the vine. "Every branch in me
that beareth not fruit. He taketh
it away: and every branch that
beareth fruit, He purgeth (or
cleaneth) it, that it may bring
forth more fruit." Still further;
"He that abldeth in Me and I In
Him, the same bringeth forth
much fruit: for without Me ye can
That is as true of each follower
of Jesus today as it was when the
Master uttered those words to His
disciples, probably in an upper
room in a house in Jerusalem. If
we accept Jesus and try earnestly
to follow Him and live the life we
know so well He would have us
live, we cannot live without Him.
We must read of His life on earth,
of what He did, what He said,
how He handled situations. If we
do He will gradually grow to be
a part of us, of every act of our

us, man, woman or child. We shall
have many disappointing moments
when we will realise that we have
said and dons things that are any
thing but ChrisUike: But If we do
not allow ourselves to be discour
aged; if we try harder and harder,
seeking help, we shall grow more
and more In His likeness.

Paul's Life Changed
From that moment Paul's life
changed unspeakably. He was no
longer the proud, self-righteous
man, whose active brain directed
the tortuse and imprisonment of
men who had seen the light of
Jesus and followed it, but he be
came a leader in the very religion

So close was the union with
Christ of which Paul was aware,
that he says, In Galatians 2 :20,
I am crucified with Christ: nev

that I now live in the flesh I live

Another figure of speech which
is familiar and which expresses
the relation of Christians to Jesus
Is the reference to Him in Ephe-
