THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
THE CHOSEN FAST: Is not this
the fast that I have chosen? to
loose the hands of wickedness, to un
do the heavy burdens, and to let the
oppressed go free, and that ye break
every yoke? Isaiah 58:6.
CEMETERY PLOT OWNERS
SHOULD PAY DUES
Mrs. G. T. Hawkins, chairman of
the Cemetery Committee of the Hert
ford Woman's Club, says that she
got a fine response from the publi
city given in the columns of the Per
quimans Weekly some weeks ago
relative to the necessity of plot own
ers in Cedarwood Cemetery in Hert
ford paying their dues.
"A number of plot owners paid
op," said Mrs. Hawkins, "and I told
them I was pleased to know they
read the home paper." "But," she
went on to say, "there are still some
plot owners who have not paid their
dues and we are in need of the
money, and I wish you would let it
be known that I should be glad to
have even a small portion of the
amount due. Those who cannot pay
in full might let me have a dollar, or
fifty cents, or even a quarter."
Mrs. Hawkins is doing a fine pub
lic service in looking after the up
keep of the cemetery. She should
have the cooperation of every one
Who owns a plot in the cemetery.
As has been pointed out before,
Mrs. Hawkins has . performed this
service for many years, without re
muneration of any kind, save now
and then a thoughtful word of praise
from some person who takes pleasure
and pride in the attractive appear

My subject is accidents.
And right here, before going any
further, I should like to let it be
known that I am familiar with my
subject. I know all about accidents.
Four times, within five years, I have
been under a physician's treatment
as the result of accidents. I am be
ginning to recover from the effects
of the most recent and the most seri
ous one. I can walk, with some dif
ficulty. So I do know about accidents. I
have first hand information, so to
speak. Also, I have been reading up
During the year 1934, accidents of
all kinds caused 101,000 deaths the
highest total on record in addition
to almost 10,000,000 non-fatal in
juries. The total cost of those accidents,
including wage loss, medical expense
and property damage, amounted to
$3,600,000,000. That's a pretty big
sum. The chances are there will be
another three or four billion-dollar
) 88 from accidents in 1935. I have
already incurred a portion of this.
"Accidents are responsible for. more
deaths to persons between the ages
of five and nineteen years than any
other cause. Among persons of all
. ages, only three diseases ; result' in
more deaths than do accidents. 1

struck with the remark that "these

looks like I shall go on having them
to the end. Probably one will even
hurry the end.
When a friend spoke to me most
seriously on the subject of being
more careful, admonishing me very
earnestly not to go on hurting my
self, after my last sad experience, I
heartily agreed. , I ought to be more
careful. I don't like to hurt myself.
There isn't anything pleasant about

try. Somehow, after I recover from
the pain and inconvenience, I find
myself still running up and down
stairs, still stepping upon round,
slippery poles in a muddy path, still

rickety step-ladders, and still trip

than the careless automobile driver

why we have so many accidents; that
is why we have so many deaths from
automobile accidents in North Caro

and that is fool driving."

Kingfish Returns Dignity
Washington, D. C The night was

Shoreham Hotel's band. And the
Kingfish also danced. Senator Long
admitted that he was not graceful:
"I stepped on her toes, I stepped on
my toes, and then I was stepped on
all toes." Someone suddenly hissed
into the Senator's ear, "You're a fine
man." The hisser was Burr Ansell
a Washington attorney whose father,
Samuel, recently sued Senator Long
for slander. Couples stared, expec
tant of a repetition of the famed
Sands Point fracas. Ansell swung a
haymaker. Huey ducked and backed
away without returning fire. Said
his partner, "He merely put young
