SEEK AT HOME
( By Ethelyn Richardson)
If -you cannot find the beauty
All around your own home spot,
There’s no use to go a chasing
For I’m sure that you cannot •
Find it in some distant land
When you cannot see it around you
Stretching far on every hand.
If the loveliness around you
From your soul is always hid
There’s no need to be roaming
To an Egyptian Pyramid,
Mountains, rivers, hills and valleys
Grassy lawns and stately trees
Look as well in your own country
As in those across the seas.
So if lovely things you vision
And you cannot thither roam
Don’t lament, but be content
With the beauty round your home.

On April 25th, 1933, after the
western sun had gone beyond the
horizon and the twinkling stars had
put in an appearance in the etheral
world, the death angel once more

neighbors and shook the death dew
from its wings which fell upon the
animate body of Mrs. Sarah Eveline
She was born August 22, 1853,
age 79 years, 8 months and 3 days.
She. by reason of her strength and
virtuous living, passed the allotted
time of three score years and ten.
Her vitality and right living exceeded
that by almost ten years.’ So may it
lie with all who are dilingent in
their activities and who have due
regard for the well-keeping of their
bodies and who look well to their

said. "It is enough, enter thou into
