THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
THE GOODNESS OF GOD: Oh
that men would praise the Lord for
his goodness, and for his wonderful
works to the children of men.
WE MUST NOT ALLOW THE
POOR TO SUFFER
We folks who live in 'Perquimans
County have got to do some welfare
work this winter. If we don't begin
right away to plan and to arrange to
carry out our plans at once, some
poor old folks are going hungry and
A great many of these needy ones
which have been turned back to the
counties and towns by the govern
ment agencies which formerly looked
after their needs, are worthy old
men and women who have worked
hard all their lives, and who are vic
tims of the circumstances which
made paupers of younger and hardier
These people need help and most
of them deserve it. But, regardless
of whether they deserve it or not, we
cannot afford to allow helpless old
people to suffer actual want in a
community of plenty.
Before the relief agencies of the
federal government were put into
effect there was a great deal of
local welfare and charity work going
on in this community. Of course,
many individuals and some organiza
tions are doing all they can now. At
that tiiqe each church organization,
as well as other civic and benelovent
organizations, had its welfare de
partment and in many cases the
same personnel made up the various
organizations which meant that many
contributed to the welfare depart
ments of two or three organizations.
All this was changed when the re
lief agencies stepped in and took over
the matter of helping the poor. We
lost the habit of giving, to a great
extent. The relief organization is
dropping the unemployable element
of the needy, which means those too
old to work, the sick, the crippled, the
helpless. In short, it does not help
those who cannot work. It merely
gives jobs to those who can work. It
is, of course, this class who cannot
work who are most in need.
The point of the government relief
organization dropping these unem
ployables Is that the counties and
towns shall assume the responsibility
for them. If these unfortunates are
to get any help it must come from
The county is giving some help.
There are 29 on the roll to receive
aid this month, several names hav
ing been dropped from the roll as it
stood last month, and others having
been added. Approximately one
hundred dollars is distributed among
these unfortunates. In no case does
Any one receive more than $3.75, and
In many cases only $2.00 is given.
Many who apply for aid do not re
ceive anything. Who is going to help
these people? Somebody must. It
is high time for some definite steps
to be taken in this direction.
Love is like a landscape which doth
Smooth at a distance, rough at hand.

The Poor Editor
Consider the editor I A child is
born unto the wife of a merchant in
the town. The physician getteth ten
plunks. The editor write th a stick
and a half and telleth the multitude
that the child tippeth the scale at
nine pounds. Yea, he lieth even as a
centurian. And the proud father
giveth him a Cremo.
Behold, the young one groweth up
and graduateth. And the. editor put
teth into his paper a vell notice.
Yea, a peach of anotice. He telleth
of the wisdom of the young woman
and of her exceeding comeliness.
Like unto the roses of Sharon is she
and her gown is played up to beat
the band. And the dressmaker get
teth two score and four iron men.
And the editor gets a note of thanks
from the sweet girl graduate.
And the daughter goeth on a jour
ney. And the editor throweth him
self on the story of the farewell!
party. It runneth a column solid.
And the fair one remembereth him
from afar with a picture postal card
that costeth six for a jitney.
Behold, she returneth, and the
youth of the town fall down and
worship. She picketh one and lo,
she picketh a lemon. But the editor
calleth him one of our promising
young men and getteth away with it.
And they send unto the editor a bid
to the wedding, and behold, the bids
are fashioned in a far city.
Flowery and long is the wedding
notice which the editor printeth.
The minister getteth ten bones. The
groom standeth the editor off for a
twelve months' subscription.
All flesh is grass and in time the
.wife is gathered unto the soil. The
, minister getteth his bit. The editor
printeth a death notice, two Columns
of obituary, three lodge notices, a
cubit of poetry and a card of thanks.
And he forgetteth to read proof on
the head and the darned thing Com
eth out, "Gone to Her Last Roasting
And all that are akin to the de
ceased jumpeth on the editor with
exceeding great jumps. And they
pulleth out their ads and cancelleth
their subs, and they swing the ham
mer even unto the third and fourth
