The following taken from the Memphis Commercial Appeal some years ago published by request of a reader, is said to be a letter written by Christ Himself, to mankind. History of the letter follows: • • Mrs. Fannie Wortman of 'Marion, .Indiana,. knows some thing of the history of the letter. According, to her statement it was first found under a stone at the foot of the cross upon which Christ was crucified. On the stone was written, "Blessed is he who shall turn me over." No one knew what this inscription meant until a child turned the s>ione over and discovered the letter under it. The letter came into the hands of a man who had been converted and who kept it as a sacred ordinance of his Savior. He, however, refused to have it published, according to the order o£ Christ, and consequently he never prospered. He kept the fact that he possessed the letter a secret and on his death,.gave it to the oldest son. Thus, the letter was kept in the family.- for over a thousand years, and was brought to this country by the early settlers. It was kept a secret by the family while they lived in Virginia, but they never prospered and ill luck continued to follow them, as it did their ancestors, until on the death of the only daughter the letter was turned over to a lady by the name.qf.Townson who not wishing to. disobey the order of Christ,had it published at once in the Tribune of Rome, Georgia, October 31, 1891. The citi- the article and Mrs. Wortman, who lived there at that time, clipped, the -'letter and has had it in her possession, she believed^ years. She never had it published for some time and says that she had bad luck all the time while keeping it in her possession arid she believed that her misfortunes all came from the fact that she never let the article out for publicat- }D. In the letter was written the ten Commandments Of Christ, signed by His angel, Gabriel, ninety - nine years after the Savior's birth. The letter follows: "Whosoever works on the Sabbath day shall be cursed; I command you to go to church and keep holy the Lord's day without any manner of work. You shall not idle or mis-spend your time in bedecking yourselves in superfluities or costly apparels and vain dressing for I have ordered it a day of rest. I will have that day kept holy, that your sins may be forgiven you. You will not break my Commandments, but observe and keep them, they being written by My hand and spoken by My mouth. You shall not only go to church yourselves but also your man servant and your maid servant. Observe My words and keep my Commandments. You shall finish your work every Saturday at 6 o'clock in the afternoon, at which hour the preparation for the Sabbath begins. I command you to fast five Fridays in each year, beginning on Good Friday, and continuing the five Fridays following, in remembrance of the five bloody wounds I received for your mankind. You shall love one another and cause them that are not baptized to come to church and receive the holy sacrament that is to say, baptism, and the supper of the Lord — arid be made a .member there of and in so doing, I will give you long life and many blessings. ened and unrepentent unbelievers. He that hath given to the poor will find it profitable. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day, for the seventh day I have taken as a resting day unto myself. "And he that hath a copy of this letter written by my own hand and spoken from my own mouth and keepeth it,.without publishing it to others, shall not ; prosper, but he that pub- lisheth it to others shall be blessed by Me and if their sins : be as many as the stars of the night, and if they truly believe they shall be pardoned; and they that" believe not this writing and my Commandments will have my plagues upon you and be consumed with your children, goods, cattle and other wordly enjoyments that I have given you. Do but once think of what I have suffered for you —if you do it will be well for you in this world and in the world which is to come. Whosoever keep it in their house, nothing shall hurt them, neither pestilence, lightning or thunder, and if any woman be in birth and put her trust in me, she shall be delivered of her child. You shall' hear no more news of me, except through the Holy Scripture until the day of judge- ment." zen of Dalton, Georgia, copied Your land shall be replenished and brought forth abundance, and I will comfort you in the greatest temptations, and sure he that doeth to the contrary shall send them, and especially on hard- be cursed.

And 300 mother and father frogs, and some carp and some water lilies and some water chestnuts. He met the challenge, and declared the colony of croakers, and others, worth ?3,746.55. The whole thing started on June 20, 1963, when the state sprayed weed killer around a pond in Waimanalo. It ju s t happened that particular pond belonged to Kwai Ing Hong who used the pond for breeding frogs. The weed killer killed the weeds and it killed almost every living thing in the pond. So Hong filed a $100,000 damage case against the state, claiming the frogs and the tadpoles in the pond would eventually have been worth that much money. • Judge Hawkins ruled the state was negligent all right, but nly in the amount of $3,746.55. the most .in PJKCtf M ^ PROTECT YOUR TREASURED FURS THE BERNARD MANOR WAY Thru special arrangement by One Hour Martinmng Laundry - Cleaners you can give your valuable furs summer long protection.
