E. GII.KOY, D, I). Keillor of Advance The fitory.of the meeting ot incus"willi a woman of Samaria at Jacob's well has some Interesting ispects Unit arc not Indicated, in he lesson Itself, '. ... Perhaps one of the . most strlk- nts angles ' Is the way- In'-which lie story emphasizes the uncon- venllonaljly of Jesus, and the cx- 'ent lo •••which He • disregarded well-established cixles and customs of'His day Ihat were out of icciird with reality, ..;.;• Kepcatcdly His enemies : challenged Him on tills ground, and lesus had to defend His free and 'onnnon-.sensc practice against the formal rules and regulations with, which .-tradition, had curbed the nind 'and Die spirit. In the east, has been no such .freedom of public conversation between men and wymcn as lias bun HIP piacllcc In the westetn woild It was decidedly unusual foi a mnn to he found coincrslng with a voinan at a public place, *uch ,11, a well and one can easily understand the amazement of .the dl'clptos when Ihty illumed fiom the city nnd tound Jesus lluis engaged. When Ihe woman concerned was one whose leputallon was none loo sivoiy, whose chaiaetei, not unlikely, may have been Indicated in her appeiiancc the ama/cment was all the greater, * + * And jet it Is In this story ol the comLisatlon of Jesus with a mnch-maiiicd uomnn at tint time ll\!ng in adulliry, that one feels the purltj and beauty of JCMIS III nsoir and the quality of life which drew forth nil that was liest in those with whom He' came In contact, even though-'that best ms bulled' beneath sinlill chaniUop; nnd emlionincnts ' The stoij has some \ciy lii- tciestlug sldelighls \yhcn Jesus ucgnn to question the \\omnn. In a somewhat piesMng and em birinsslng «nj, coiiccining her onn pusonnl life, she immediately switched Ihe conversation lo oilier things: She wanted to know why Jesus being a Jew, should nik foi a dilnk of walei fiom hei a Samaiiltm woman It was a very pointed, question, and indicated lliat she' wanted lo tmn the conversation . away from ; the subject of personal tins to that ot social and religious customs People who have been little concern- id about the practice ot Christian nine and the upholding of Chiis- ;liui truth often hiue been the nost leadj to discuss theoretical questions of icllglon and llieologi The} hue, In lact, been known :o buomc lalhei \lolent and In- tolciant over the dkcu^lon -of ilrcljlnes which thcj have dons, little to put Into practice. * * * o When the wonnn mltijecled the question concerning worship— whether the tine : place for It was in Jeiusalcm 01 In the bimiul- tan mounlalns—Je.sus lurned her qucsllon and the dlsc-sslon very (inlckly to higher llilngs. It was '|o this woman that He gave Ihat deep'and beaullful word concerning trnlh and worship: That God Is a spirit, and that, they who worship must worship In spirit and In truth; and that neither al Jerusalem, nor in any mountain, but wherever devout souls nre found, there' the true worship of God may be. With (his was the teaching of Jesus concerning the water of life, the deep''satisfaction that this woman, with all her quest, of earthly happiness, had never found. Can any words apply more truly than these lo our life of today? illow many In the .modern world 'lire like this woman, seeking Impl- ncss ami satisfaction In unconventional ways and flcls, defying codes and ' moral ' standards alike but finding ho'real happiness or' satisfaction! • It Is to these thai an unconventional Christ, .iilmself .living above mere foi cepts, reveals the true way of life, Ihe yielding of Ihc spirit, to the spirit of the soul under the jxwer o! love and righteousness.

Considerahlc damage to telephone • lilant occurrecl in this county, with resulting iiilcrriipliong, delays, •'* nnd inconvenience to users. In this emergency your local telephone people and the man. agcmetit of llie telephone company appreciate grcally your pn> lience nnd cooperation. . . t ' Scores of other towns in a slrclch of 900 miles from Texas lo Iowa were cither isolated entirely, or left willi hndly crippled < wire connections. Thousands of telephones were put ont of service as two-incli ice loads ami falling trees tore "drop wires" from poles in streets and alleys. In the open country, poles went down and long distance wires snapped with their hca\y weight. i Much of this damage yon saw. But you could not realize llie full extent of the damage everywhere, which will probably reach §1,500,000 in Ihc Southwestern Company's territory. The storm was scarcely two hours old when mobilization of an army of more th'nn 1,000 telephone linemen got under way. Trucks of rhcn nnd mnlerials began to roll toward ihe storm area.' ' Western Electric warehouses at St; Louis and Kansas City rushed ' stocks stored for just such emergencies. First efforts of these men have l>ecn to restore al least some working lines to each town cut off by the slorni. Emergency re. pairs also were begun on subscriber lines. In ensuing weeks will come the long and tedious task of making permanent repairs over the vast storm area. . :' • The men, the materials, and the financial resources are available to replace, promptly and adequately, the one nnd ouc-LalS million'dollar telephone plant destroyed by the storm. ___ Southwestern Bell Telephone Company M.
