ADV. If we read the Bible aright, we read a book which teaches us to go forth and do the work of the Lord; to do the work of the Lord in the world as we find it, to try to make things better in this world, even if only a little better, because we have lived in it. That kind of work can be done only by the man who is neither a weakling nor a coward by the man who in the fullest sense of the word is a Christian like Great Heart, Bunyan's hero. We plead for a closer and wider and deeper study of the Bible, so that our people may be in fact as well as in theory, "doers of the ord and not hears only." --THEODORE ROOSEVELT. ••• GOD BLESS THE GIRL WHO WORKS. God bless the girl who works! She is not too proud t. earn her own living, Rot ashamed to be caught at her daily task. She smiles at you from behind the counter or desk or printer's esse.

  6. 6. 6 THE MESSENGER PHILOSOPHY IN BROKEN DOSES. Enthusiasm is the headlight on the train of progress. Youth views life through rose- tinted glasses; age through blue goggles; which is beetter? Shyness is beautiful in the wood violet; it is not thought to be indispensable to a millionaire. When we're undeservedly praised we commend the critic's judge- ment. If we are undeservenly censured, what do we do then? When we get Justice, the real- ity, we may dispense with Char ity, the sham. After eating we allow time for dige-tion. After' reading how much time do we allow for thought? A string suggests a man pulling and being pulled. --- .......---- EMPTY JARS We have plenty of ·them and will be glad to send them to our friends who will fill them and return them to us in the fall. We prepay all charges. Let us know how many you want and to whom to send them, HOUSEKEPER SECURED. Miss Nonie Gable, of Senoia, Ga. has accepted the position of Housekeeper in the Home, and assumed her duties ,. July 5th, last. She is proving herself capable and efficient in this important department of our Home work, and we congratulate ourselves on securing her services. MISS DORA BARRIER. Miss Dora Barrier, who for seventeen years was the efficient Housekeeper for the Home, passed peacefully away, after a lingering illness, at the Home of her brother, Mr. M. W. Barrier, near Statesville, N. C., on July 19th. No one has ever worked in the Home with a higher degree of de- votion to her duties than she did. She was loved by all in the Home. The familiar face .and name of Miss Dora will be greatly missed by us all. She loved' the Home and was thoroughly consecrated to its great mission. She bore her sufferings with Christian pa- tience and resignation, and died in the triumphs of Christian faith. "Asleep in Jesus, " Ie· A BETTER WAY Don't lie in bed and dream and dream Of what you'd like to do, But hop right up an hit your licks To make your dreams come true -Tennyson J. Daft. RECEIVING CONGRATULATIONS. Mr. and Mrs, Critselous are re- ceiving the congratulations of their freinds upon the arrival in their home on July 18, of a little daughter. Mr. Critselous is the Superin- tendent of our farming opsra- tions. Mrs. Critselous is with her parents, Mr. and Mrs.C. J.. Harr, at Indian Springs, Tenn.
