THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
THE PRESENT ALONE IS OUfcS
Whereas ye know not wnai snaii
be on the morrow. James 4:14.
Mrs. W. T. Bost offers a plan con
sisting essentially of the establish
ment of ten or fifteen district "hos
pital homes" for feeble-minded and
the removal of all persons in this
classification from the hospitals for
the insane, and tha jails. Also, as
the provision of funds for th care of
the old, dependent children and the
blind becomes adequate and inclusive
the social security program the
county almshouses couia De uui
away with entirely.
Reference is made to especially
horrible conditions existing in the
Mecklenburg county jail. But condi
tions in county jails and county
homes are always such that he who
would sleep well of nights and enjoy
the blessings for which he returns
thanks when sitting donw to meat
needs the faculty of ignoring them.
And the tragic over-crowding of the
insane asylums is a condition co-extensive
with their history.
In the past couple of decades much
of the ancient reproach has been re
moved from the counties' custodian
ship of their citizens who have no
other resource in their age and in-

ninnnil tn carp for the feeble
minded and cannot do so except at
the expense of the comfort and hap
piness of their other charges.
If there is reasonable expectation
4-1. n fVQ irfofl advanced by Mrs. Bost
will do what it is designed to do
and there is, or she would not ad
vance it-it is well worth trying.
The elemental soundness of it can
not indeed be questioned. That the
feeble-minded ought to be segregated
needs no argument. And it will be a
bright day in the history of the State
when the last county "poorhouse

TESTING DISCIPLESHIP BY
Golden Text: "Come, follow
me." Mark 10:21.
Lesson Text: Mark 10:17-31
As Jesus started from Galilee on
v; lout innrnpv to Jerusalem, he took
the usual route through Perea, east
of the Jordan. After discussing wiui
n PVioi-iaoM who met him the ques
tion of divorce, he crossed over into
Judea and here little children were
l ..U til him fnr his blessing.
UlUUgllb vw ...... .
While here, a young man, wealtny,
attractive in person and religious in
intent, rushed up to him and asked
the renowned question, "Good Teach
er, what shall I do that I may in
herit eternal life?"
he went away sorrowful: for he was
one that had great possessions." We
do not interpret this advice of Jesus
to the young man as- applicable en
tirely to every man, lor weaim "a
its missions to perform nd the con
scientious realization of this truth by
rich men often create greaUand last
ing beneficial agencies for mankind.
However. Jesus knew the heart of the
rich vounar ruler, and he knew that
he?4ike many moderns, gauged every
man by his wealth, not by intelli
gence, character, or service. How
hard, Jesus said, is it for a man ob
sessed with the supremacy of wealth
to appreciate the value of the soul
nr the aniritnal assets of life. The
poor widow, casting her two mites
into the temple treasury, was used
later to emphasize to his disciples
that it was not the kize of the gift
but the spirit of the giver which indi
cated the amount of .blessing to be
