THE PEOPLE'S FORUM Wales Enjoyihg Tea BACK DOOR TO CHINA Tdftgking "ffofetier Once Looked Promising Trade Area Has Proven " Disappointing. , i WASHINGTON, D. C., May 2.— The Tongktng border, where the territory of France in Indcr-Chlna touch- is China proper, is reported to have been the scene of recent clashes between French troops and Chinese communists. The region is the subject at a bulletin from the Washington, D. C. headquarters of the National Geographic society. "The dhinese-Tongking frontiers, northeast of Hanoi^ capital of Tong- king, waa looked upon as a new and promising trade door to China by the French colonial leaders who entered Tongking in 1885," says the bulletin— "a back door that it was hoped could be remodeled into a front door. But the region has proved to be economically disappointing. "Kwang-SI, the Chinese province that touches Tongking on the northeast, is one of 'pauper, provinces' of China. Scerilcally, it is a wonderland of hills and valleys, crags and cowering mountains, all masked by luxuriant vegetation. But it lacks wealth, and even many of the con- aitions that promise a development at wealth. Much of the country Is tough and rocky; the population is elatively scant, and consists largely 'backward and diverse tribes. "Aa the French developed their new. acquired region of Tongking, two major railway extensions into China were planned. One waa to penetrate northwestward'into Yunnan province, and the other northeastward into Kwang-Si. The first was built for more than 200 miles into 'China, to Yunnan city, and has proved a valuable outlet and inlet for trade. "The second of the proposed railways was built to Langson, a Tong- king town just short of the Chinese border, and an extension was run for a, few miles along the frontier; but the plan to have the rails,cross Into China and penetrate thlrty-flve mile* to the Chinese town of Lung Chow «.nd beyond, haa never been carried aut. A branch of the railway runs exactly to the frontier at a point called 'Porte • de Chine.' On the Chinese side, barring the way, la a short section of masonry wall. A highway to Lung Chpw penetrates the wall through a gate which the Chinese call Nam-quan, 'The Southern Toll Gate.' The wall was blown up by the French in 1885 when they drove Chinese troops from Tongking and followed them into Kwang-SI. "Lung Chow waa made a 'treaty port' soon after the French became established in .Tongking. Some trade Is carried on over the highway between the city and the border. Its volume, however, has never soemed to justify extension of the railway. Much of the trade of the province follows the river valleys down to Canton. ' . • "Kwang-SI, In which Lung Chow lies, has coma to be known more as a breeder of trouble than as a prp- ducer of goods. It was in this far southern state that the famous Tai- Ping rebellion originated In 1850, spreading throughout southern China at a cost of millions of lives."

HOW ca« it be dealt, with Tn ft way that will bring peace and harmofty to all? Many afgumenti have been presented both for and against the ft» to humanity. Yet the battle goe« on Just th« same. Why not let God's word settle the question once and for all timeV Listen to what the Holy Writ has to say aboilt It. The word plainly points out two kinds of wine, one good for medicine and food, allowable for our necessities being mentioned in the word in the following places: Gen. XL :11—"Pharoah's cup was In my hand: and I tobk the grapes and pressed them Into Pharoah's cup, and I gave the cup Into Pharoah's hand." This was none other than the pure, unfermented juice of the grape, a blessing to man when used in its pure state. Again please read: Jud. IX:13—"The vine said unto them, 'should I leave my wine which cheereth God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?' Yes, ao long as the vine has the wine it is cheering to both God and man." , . Also in Isa. lj,XV:8T-"Thus salth the Lord: as the new wine is found in a cluster, and one salth, destroy it hot; for a blessing is in it." Truly the unfermented juice of the fruit Is harmless if taken In moderate quantities. A wonderful germ killer it is, and few, if any, become intoxicated by proper use of it. The conflict is not about that kind of wine. The Saviour made this same kind of harmless wlnp at a wedding feast at Cana. This was his first miracle, Jno. 11:1-10. There can be no doubt that Jesus at this gathering made unfermented wine, for it truly is the best wine, as all confirmed the content. Our good reasoning should forever be that our Saviour would ndt make harmful wine. Then we have the statement of the noted apostle, Paul, about the good wine which is a medicine, also a food, good for one's often infirmities. Many sick ones have been wonderfully bene- fltted by using pure fruit juice. This is God's word about harmless, ajlow- Rape makes a good temporary pasture for finishing the market lamb.

O. B. Ka Mori, cook, had never operated a "devil- wagon," so he got a book of instructions read them, threw them away, for he assimilates information rapidly. Cook Mori then crawled behind the steering wheel, stepped on 'the starter, pulled out the choke, was astonished when the automobile started. Coming the wrong way down a one-way street, Cook Mori had the choice of two roads, and picked Lake Shore drive. The "devil-wagon" moved along with Increased speed, pursuing a miscellaneous course without regard to traffic cops, signals, stop lights, or pedestrians. When a motorcycle cop eventually vaulted into tho car from the saddle of his machine, Ka Mori expressed his willingness to read further in his book of instructions. • • • ' In' the Miami Daily New» appeared the following advertisement: For Delicious Meals Soap ...-..., 3 Bars 20c •**••.« In Duncannon, Pa., Mrs. Helen V.

Harmful 'Forbidden Wine. Dan. 1:8— "Daniel purposed in his . heart that he would not defile himsel with a portion of the King's meat nor the wine which he drank." This kind of wine was defiling to the body. Th Lord says, "If any man defile the temple of God, him will God destroy for the temple of God is holy whicl temple ye are." Belshazzer was drunk with defiling wine, and lost his life. In Prov. XX :1— The Lord says "win is a mocker, strong drink is raging whosoever ia deceived thereby is no wise." Who wants to be mocked, o be deceived, or called not wise, or t be found dealing in any way wit something that is raging, or has viol ent anger connected with it?

His admonition "Look not thou upon the wine when is red, when it giveth colour in the up, when it moveth IWself upright." bia is none other than the fermented tine, because the unfermented wine oes not move itself upright. The effect of this forbidden, wine, He ays, "at last biteth like a serpent and tlngeth like an adder." Thus, you ee, we are warned not to look upon ermented wine, for it, as has been lalnly shown, is defiling to the body.
