In most communities, there are historic buildings, or other physical objects, such as trees, valleys, and lakes about which legends have developed, Perhaps only the oldest inhabitant recalls the incidents, real or imagin- ery, which make these objects inter- eating, and when they died, local color will go with them. Then again, some person or family may have made .a collccllo nof stamps, arrow heads, coin, drawings and paintings, etc. Clt- j izens of this community may know of a colony of wild animals, or other national historic curiosity, or an unusual geologic formation. Tourist traffic, local, as well as Inter-state and national, is built on just such features which combine to give a fact individuality and background. In addition, individuals and families often possess old books, manuscripts, letters, or other valuable historic records, which, if properly appraised, might find their way into a local library where all would have the op- I portunity to examine them. Recently, ' one of our workers found, in a bank vault, an historically valuable letter, written by Abraham Lincoln. The owner did not know what to do with it; so, in protecting it, he put it where no one could see it. Tills appeal is being made to cit- ( izens of the following counties: Miller,! Hempstead, Pike, LaFayette, Little River. Howard and Scvier, comprising the Texarkana district, for such objects as old records they may possess, and other facts of community value. We -trust that you will place in our hands, for temporary safe keeping, i any descriptions or manuscripts that j we may incorporate in the American' Guide Book, the governments' new five-volume guide to the United Suites, soon to be published. Our only hope of getting a true and adequate picture of this community before the public, through the American Guide Book, is to be realized through real co-operation from pioneer nnd other interested, local citizens. They can do tliis by furnishing exclusive special stories about any person, incident, or place of unusual interest. Any and all communications should j bo addressed to J. E. Matlock, Local ' District Supervisor of the Federal Writers' Project, Room 12, P. O. Building, Texarkana, Ark.

Editor of Advance Malachi, last of the Old Testament prophets, sounds a message alike of warning and of hope, 1 It in difficult for us to put ourselves back into the times when Halaehi lived, and it is, therefore, difficult to interpret his message in the light of his age and environment. No one, however, could read this lesson without realizing that it has a significance far beyond the situation of any one time or of any one nation. I It is the picture of tlie coming of , one who wil Isave the nation. But salvation cannot come without purification of the national life and without the sweeping away of all that is false and untrue. | This social Savior is as a refiner | and purifier of silver and gold. Men are to be put in tlie crucible, and the refining fire is first of all to purify the priests, or the sons of Levi. The age of salvation is an ago of judgment, of "swift witness" against the doers of evil, not only those whoso lives are vicious and, false, but those who oppress the workers and who rob the widowed and the fatherless. Muliichi brings against the nation the charge of perverting the truth, of turning aside the ordinances of God, and of robbing God through their failure to make Him an honest return of tithes and offerings. He calls upon the people to turn from this robbery iind pretense to sincerity, to bring the "whole tithe into the storehouse." The language he uses is as intense HI- it is full of appeal and hope. Tlie duvourer and the destroyer are to bo rebuked and overthrown,-but the nation that yields itself in full offering to Clod and in full reliance upon Him will find the windows of heaven open and a blessing poured out so great that there shall not be room enough tu ro- ceive it. ll is sad to rouli/e that, between the tiinu of Malachi and the coining of Jesus, nearly 400 years later, a period of darkness and suffering settled down upon Itreul. But it is worth while to j remember that out of this period there emerges tlu> story of heroic souls and of lliuiJ' sublime sacrifice in the .struggle against oppression. Like other prophecies of tlie great prophets of Isreal there is a timeliness about the moral judgments of Malachi. Hero he sets forth wilh great clearness tin; way of salvation and blessedness in the life of the nation, as well as the way that inevitably makes for weakness and destruction. Malachi has a profound and practical message for America and Americana today. Let. us seek to read the lesson not merely ILS a document that come:: out of the past, but as u plaJn message of a clear-seeing social and religious leader who, being dead, yet speaks. The lobbory uC God moans Hie robbery of man. Falseness and insincerity in religion are the counterpart of social hypocrisy and oppression. Honesty in life and purpose is tlie I foundation stone of all true building, i both in church and in shite. GARRETT MEMORIAL BAPTIST Hcllis PurielJ, 'Pastor Sunday school at 10 o'clock.
