Timely to You! To strike this subject while the country is hot may command some attention. It is a vitally Important thing that Covlna should have a park and a public swimming pluuge. The acquisition of a tract of land which may be beautified into a place where tbe people may pleasantly spend their time in the summer months, and in the winter for that matter, is Something upon which action should be taken at once. It would be an easy matter to discuss plans to be carried out along this Hue, but the plans for such a project have nothing to do with the present need, which Is to take action in the acquisition of the land, not some small corner lot with a few palms and a fountain, but a park, numbering several acres, and located near enough to the center of the town to make It easily accessible to the visitor and the dweller in the Immediate town. A park should be laid out on such a scale that It would be spoken of by visitors as one of the very pleasant features connected with the town. Los Angeles, supposed to be one of the ideal cities of a semi-tropic country, is very remiss In this respect. The Sixth street park in that city has been a source of great comfort to its visitors and dwellers, but«it is inadequate for the size of the city. San Francisco has innumerable parks, large and small, parks which were gifts to the city and parks which were acquired and beautified through municipal expenditure. It is one of the comfortable, restful things about that city of the north. The stranger may enjoy himself without encroaching upon anyone. Fresno has a beautiful ten acres surrounding the county courthouse, which is maintained Jointly by the county and city. St. James park in San Jose is one of the finest welcomes to strangers ever offered by any California municipality, and a source of incalculable comfort to the citizens in that city of the Santa Clara Valley. Small towns around have seen the desirability of acquiring land for this purpose. President McKlnley, while speaking in the park at San Jose, mentioned, said that he had received flattering welcome in every California town he had visited, but no feeling of genuine wel«ome had been so great as the silent invitation of the towering trees, the cool xvalks and restful seats of St. James park, and he enjoyed it all the more for knowing that every stranger, rich or poor, received the same welcome every month in the year. And, in this Covina park which we must acquire immediately, there shall be, let us say, a big swimming pool, open to everyone, under the regulations of the park commissioner, who shall be in constant attendance during the hot months. Can you name another thing needed more in this town? Can you name another public movement, that will meet with greater support than that of establishing a plunge for enjoyment during the hot weather? Properly managed, this big pool will be a source of delight such as the town has never known. Every boy and girl will sanction this, and it should be done. We have an abundance of water. We can make a cement tank of an acre or more in extent if advisable. It will not do to be too niggardly about either the subject of the park or the plunge In its center. Fresh water supplied In a plunge of this kind will keep many a boy and girl from a trip to the beaches; it will make the home town more atractive. Under the rules to be carried out by the park commissioner and swimming pool attendant, this feature of the park may be made one of its greatest delights. Let us begin to talk this matter up to the council immediately. Land for this purpose is never going to be cheaper. We must have a park, and the sooner steps are taken to acquire it the cheaper it will be for the city. Let's talk it up right away, issue bonds for this purpose, and keep in the vanguard with other cities small and large in California. What do you think, citizens? Isn't it a good, common sense movement? —Contributed. Suggestive Questions on the Sunday School Lesson by Rev. Dr. Llnscott for the International Newspaper Bible Study Club. JUNE 6th, 1909. The Power of the Tongue. James 3: 1-12. Golden Text—Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles. Prov. 21:23. This cbapter continues the thought of last week's lesson, based on the previous chapter. Verse 1—What class 6f persons are most likely to want to rule, or be "masters," those engaed In good works or those who neglect them? Will one who is in rapt love with his fellows want to rule them, or will he judge them harshly? Unfaithful Christians always put up a high standard for others; what effect will that have upon the standard with which God will measure them? (See Matt. 7:1-5.) Verse 2—How much of our trouble and how much of the trouble we make for others is caused by our tongues? If a man does not do any harm by his words, is he very apt to do any otherwise? If a man says hard and unkind things about his neighbors, and intentionally wounds the -feelings of others by his words, is he necessarily a bad man? Is the control of the tongue the key to the control of the entire man? Verse 3—It takes an iron bit to control a horse, what is the "bit" which will effectually control the tongue? In what respect is an ungoverned tongue like a runaway horse with a broken bit, and what are generally the results In each case? Verses 4-5—ta It actually so.that the tongue Is to the man what the rudder is to the ship, that Is, does the tongue govern the Influence of the man? Is it necessary at all times to watch our tonguea, compelling them to refrain from wrong words, and to use right words; just as the man at ihe wheel of a ship controls the rudder with vigilant watchfulness? | Is the tongue capable of setting a church or a neighborhood all ablaze with scandal, just as a match may set fire to a city? Verse 6—What are some of the many "iniquities" which the tongue can cause? Can you recall and mention some of the moral poison emitted by an evil tongue? Do persons with an evil tongue always draw their inspiration from "hell?" Verses 7-8—Man can do very wonderful things, in training animals and controlling the forces of nature, but cannot "tame" the human tongue, nor destroy its poison; to whom may we apply to have this effectually done? Verses 9-12—If a man uses his tongue both for bad and for good, for "blesing and cursing," does this not stamp him as a rank hypocrite? Is it possible for a person with an evil tongue, to be at the same time well pleasing to God? LC-sson for Sunday, June mt.h, 1900. Heroes of Faith. Heb. 11:1-40.
