I believe that even in the dark days of Hitler's Germany it was the bestseller there, and evidently many people were turning to it for the help and comfort that they so sorely needed. It would be pleasant to think that in addition to being the world's best-selling book, the Bible is the most read and used, and the most persistently and intelligently projected into daily life and conduct. I doubt whether that is the case, though 1 think the Bible has come into wider reading and use than in the days when the lar.ge "Family Bible" reposed upon the center table in the old-fashioned parlor. Of course, though the 'Family Bible" reposed there, a smaller Bible, well thumbed and worn, as in my own home, found daily use. This was the "real" Bible as it entered into our lives. And how well that much-used Bible did enter into daily life and conduct has been well attested in the lives of inumerable Christian Sunday & Monday at Saengei JERRY LEWIS and DEAN MARTIN in a. riotous scene from Paramounts "MONEY FROM HOME," in 3-D, and in color by Technicolor.

What impresses one today, with a sadness amounting at times almost to despair, is the realization that the type of Bible life and conduct — in the Jews of the Old Testament and the Christians of the Old and the New — is examplified by a minority in today's world. That contrast must incline toward sadness, but not despair, for one must never forget the small beginnings in which arose the Christianity which millions today profess. In quality/, if not n quantoty, the Chrstian of today are the world's best, and the world's greatest hope.

They won't recognize themselves as offenders. However in the hope that one of your constant visitors may be an exception — here goes; Assuming A Welcome Since the folks who make the unexpected visits are neither relatives nor close friends, they are especially rude in assuming that a welcome will await them any time they are in the mood to call on you. They come at their own convenience ,not yours, and I'd bet anything if you dropped in at their city homes, they would be quite amazed — and not pleasahtly so. Why not try it some time and meet their astonishment with a bland. "Why you come to us so often unannounced that we were sure you welcomed surprise guests!" Being ever, that profession does not always mean possession and reality. And it is here that one might express the passionate wish that the Bible, the world's best-sellng book, should be the 'best-read and the best-expressed in life, I have often wondered whether the Bible, the best-used Book, may not also be the most abused. The Bible consists, in our English version, of 66 books, not just one, With its many authors, coming out of vast and diverse periods of time, totaling possibly a thousand years, the Bible's great diversity has been used to justify all manner of conflicting beliefs and actions. Polygamy, intolerance, all rnan< ners of persecutions and cruel punishments, ruthless destruction of enemies; these and innumerable acts of violence and OP' jpssion have j^ _ justified up,o;i the the Boots;'jh,at~ In'its high.e, teaching not; only commends righteousness but exports tow8?$i mercy and cojmpgssion,' .ang ftteft. ,lte..M!M?L«samr coffin: 1.

This reading of 4" again is due to he fact that the minimum thermometer has to read the same as r lower than the maximum set. Unce the maximum set was 4° esterday and the weather warm- d Up considerably since then, the eadihg must still be at 4" because t the time or reading yesterday morning it.was 4°, the coldest time "uring the last 24 hours. Nearly very winter on a warm day fol- owing a very cold day we receive lumerous telephone calls telling :s that we must have read our 'in- truments. wrong or that the local apers printed the temperatures vrong as we reported the same low emperature for two days and last light it was considerably warmer. How come you didn't report it as varmer? Here again the minimum emperature can not ,be higher han the set temperature of the Dreceding day. This can, also, work the other vay, that is, have the same max- mum temperature for two suc- eeding days, because the weather vas gradually getting colder all of he time. I realize that at times these tem- )erature readings are rather dif- icult to understand and they are -ery difficult to clearly explain. Before we decide last year broke 00 many records let us check back 1 few years. Weather history is al- >vays in the making, tout unusual hings must happen in Hempstead Bounty to break any records as his County, has some of the oldest veather data in Arkansas, a total f 83 years. For example, this year vas unbearably hot and dry with a maximum temperatuiW'bf 408 de- rees and a rainfall of 42.07" inches ut 1936 was, also, hot and dry /with a maximum temperature oi |113 degrees and only 34,39 inches of precipitation. No records were bro/ken, however, as the previous max- Jmum temperature was 115 degrees, and only 32.1 inches of rain fell in 1924 and only 29.2 inches in -1896. In 1954 our October rainfall 'totaling 8.74 inches was the highest for any one month this year and i5.55 inches above normal for that ,month, however, this is not much Of a record when compared to July 1849 when 19.5 inches of rain fell.

Smith. At that /time the Weather Bureau was un- 'der the supervision of the Smithsonian Institute. Apparently due to some difference between Dr. Smith and the Institute, his reporting stopped and lapsed for several years before starting again. Accor- iding to the Centennial Edition of the Hope Star, Dr. Smith and the [Smithsonian Institute arrived at an 'agreement and he furnished them /with a full weather report daily 37 years later from 1840 to 1860 or until his death, This authentic record is now in the Smithsonian Institute and so far as can be ascertained is the first authentic weather report ever kept in Arkansas. Apparently the Civil War interrupted weather readings about 1861, for they were not regularly resumed until 1887 at which time [Judge A. H. Carrigan became the •official reporter. Judge Carrigan .served in this capacity at Washington until 1903 at which time he mo- ived his family and weather equipment to Hope, continuing his ser- ivices as official reporter until 1908. Official records are absent from H908 until 1915 at which time Mr. 'N. P, O'Neal was designated as the official reporter.
