A::d I he Last Shall Be First
- By: MRS HOWARD JOYNER
The Angel heard a gentle rapping
at the gate. Hastening to the gate
to see who the caller was, she in
quired "What name please?" A
proud, arrogant voice replied, "Oh,
don't ypu know? I'm Mrs. Van O'
Connor, and' I'd appreciate it If
you didn't keep me waitihg. My
servan, the woman with me, and I
have been through -puite a bit today.
As you know, we were killed in
that awful aeroplane accident this
afternoon. 'Open up please: 'Im not
accustomed to waiting."
The-sweet voice of the Angel
replied, "But just a minute, there
are some question! that I must ask
you: For our. record, you know."

make it brief as I'm very tired and
want to rest."
The ' Angel proceeded, "First,
dearfwhat did you bring with you?"
The inpatient voice replied, "Why
notfnng at all, but surely you know
this. You see I wasn't prepared to
come so suddenly and I brought
nothing. It's awful to know that I
had to leave a fortune behind, and
besides the money, I had to leave
three palatial homes. Why .Angel,
they were the finest Tiomes in the
world that money could buy. I also
had to leave three almost new cars.
If only I had known that I was
coming, I could have made some
Again the soothing voice of the
Angel explained. "But dear, those
are worldy things arid do not count
here. What I meant was, what kind
of deeds did you leave behind? The
good that you did while on earth
are the only things that count up
here. Do you understand now what
I mean? Who is this sweet faced
woman with you?"
Shaking her head in annoyance,
the hard voice replied, "Oh, don't
bother with her - please attend to
me first, for you see, she's only my
poor servant and she is well accus
tomed to waiting. And too, she's
not miserable like I am, for she left
nothing of value behind, being a
servant, you know."
The sweet voice of the Angel
proceeded, "My dear, I'm afraid
you're very confused about values,
for our Record proves differently.
This gentle faced woman whom you
call your jervant, whom as you
said left no wealth, and nothing of
material value behind, but wait,
let me read you her record io that
you may better understand this
woman's great worth. Listen! 'This

solve the major problem of raising
livestock, according to Frank Fai
son, Jr., Negro county agent.

feeding them a small amount of
corn each day. Culbreth plans to
seed two more acres of clover this
fall, using the same recommended
practices which he followed last
