raiS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
' A GREAT PRAYER: Let not
them that wait on thee, 0 Lord God
of hosts, be ashamed for my sake;
let not those that seek thee be con
founded for my sake, 0 God of
Israel. Psalm 69:6.
HERE TO STAY
Money is safe in the bank. The
United States government insures it
for the depositors. Deposit insurance
is not to end on July first. It is a
permanent institution. From the
first, the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation has stressed the fact that
deposit insurance is a permanent part
of the Federal Banking Law.
All deposits in banks, up to $5,000
are fully safeguarded against loss.
Some recent inquiries, of bank offi
cials and others would indicate that
an erroneous impression as to thej
permanency oi uus aeposu insurance
has arisen. There is no ground for
any such impression. This deposit
insurance is a permanent institution.

Who is going to win a prize in the
ice-melting guessing contest to be
staged by W. M. Morgan? If Mr.
Morgan would give us some idea what
kind of weather to expect on the
morning the ice is to be placed on
the sidewalk, we might be able to
guess a little better. Suppose it
happens to be raining that morning.
Maybe it will be quite warm by that
time. Who can tell?

James Madre, prominent young
Hertford Township farmer, found in
his back yard one day last week a
strange young chicken. The chicken
bears on its back the imprint of
claws, according to Mr. Madre, who
examined the fowl. He decided that
a hawk must have dropped the chick
en while carrying it.
There are no young chickens any
thing like the size of this one at Mr.
Madre's farm, nor in the neighbor
hood. Mr. Madre is one of the Madres of
the Madre settlement, which includes

changed for a suit to fit a six-year-old.
