COMPANYSTOCKS BEING BUILT UP FOR NEW DEMAND 90 Men Employed as No. 4 and No. 7 Are Put in Operation. After two days of experimental work with new machinery, actual production of clay products got under way Monday at the plants of the Mason City Brick and Tile company. Approximately 90 men were at the various jobs connected with the manufacturing of drain tile, bricks, building tile and other products in plants No. 7 and No. 4. New machinery has been installed in No. 7. The expectation is that more men will be added later, particularly if demand materializes. The plant operation is resumed to build up the stocks of the company. Thus far no perceptible increase in demand for building products has shown itself. Demand for materials for rural improvement, regarded as a significant potential market, has not yet developed, according to F. J. Hanlon, president. The building industry is one of the slowest to feel the pulse of increasing business activity, but that it will experience some appreciation in demand soon, is the general belief among the leaders of construction and materials concerns..

Sunday night explained the first Sunday law recorded as that of Constantine, Roman emperor, 321 A. D. "It was then termed," continued the speaker, "by Constantine 'the venerable day of the sun' as the first day of the'week is well known as 'the solar holiday of all pagan times.' "From Plain Talk About the Protestantism of Today," by Monsignor Segur ws read, 'It was the Catholic church which, by the authority ol Jesus Christ, has transferred this rest to the Sunday in remembrance of the resurrection of our Lord. Thus the observance of Sunday by the Protestants is an homage they pay, ia spite of themselves, to the authority the (Catholic) church.' In 1899 Father Enright of Kansas City made this offer, 'I hereby offer $1,000 to any one who can prove to me, from the Bible alone, that I am bound under pain or grievous sin, to keep Sunday holy.' "Another statement from Enright follows: 'Protestants--profess great reverence for the Bible and yet by their solemn act of keeping Sunday they acknowledge of the Catholic church. The Bible says, 'Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy,' but the Catholic church says, no; keep the first day of the week and the whole world bows in obedience.' "Daniel 7:25 foretold this attempt to change God's law while Christ declared that He came not to destroy the law and that one jot or title should not be taken from it. (Matt. 5:17-19.)" Speaking of success, what man ever again feels as triumphant as he did the first day he rode without 'touching the handlebars?-Kessinger's Review.

About a half carload of old paper and magazines to be sold to add to the fund to send the high school orchestra and band to national contests was gathered Saturday in a campaign sponsored by the Music Mothers' club and assisted by the Junior Chamber of Commerce and Boy Scouts.

Maybe the dollar won't buy a dollar's, worth in Europe, but it was that way back in 1918.--Kewanec Star Courier. Carleton L. Stewart, director of the high school band and orchestra, has been selected as one of three judges to judge the Illinois state final music contest, the largest of its kind in the United States. Competition in the Illinois contest is unusually keen and the fact that a Mason Cityan was chosen to serve as one of the band judges ia considered a recognition of the fine band work which has been done in Mason City high school. Among the 11 class A bands which received the superior ranking in the last national band contest held at Urbana, HI., eight were from Illinois. The other three were Cleveland, Ohio, Marion, Ind., and Mason City. For several years, Illinois bands have held a leading position in national competition. The * class B and class C bands have also been outstanding. Judged Last Year. Judges w.ho served in the Illinois band contest last year .were Victor Grabel, noted composer and bandmaster of Chicago; Bachman of Bachman's famous million dollar band, and Karl L. King of Fort Dodge, well known music composer and music publisher. Selection of Mr. Stewart as one of the judges was conducted in a general and democratic method which also is considered as indicative that the music work carried on by the local high school has become widely known among music directors. Picked by Directors. The by-laws of the Illinois high school music association provided that a list of eligible judges selected by A. A. Harding, director of the University of Illinois bands and HUMANITY NEEDS SPIRITUAL FOOD, MINISTERS STATE Heaven Created in Heart and Soul of Living, Says Dr. Dibble. That humanity hungers, but hungers roost for spiritual bread and that the Bible and prayer are wells from which man may draw spiritual waters were among" the subjects discussed in the services in the Mason City churches. "The Reality of Mercy," was Dr. W. L. Dibble's sermon topic at the Congregational church Sunday forenoon. It was his contention that the heaven of the hereafter is created in the heart and soul of living man. A musical feature of the morning worship was an anthem. "God Is Love," composed by Esther Senior Stinehart in 1915. The words are from an old hymn, which was sung later by choir and congregation. Mrs. Stinehart's son, James, ia a member of the choir. "Humanity Hungers. 1 "Humanity hungers, but she hungers for different kinds of bread," stated the Rev. W. H. Kampen of Central Lutheran church in his sermon Sunday. "The bread problem is one of the great problems of life; the bread problem is the great problem of the cation today. Jesus, however, was not as concerned as are we with the so-called staff of life. He was, however, greatly concerned about the bread from on high. This bread is not sold in the market place; no price--no matter how much you would pay in gold or silver can pur chase this bread. It comes to all rich and poor, bond and free, paren! and child for the asking. It re quires that one seek; for seek ing, ye shall find. It requires tha one knock; for knocking, the door shall be opened unto you. "And those who seek not shal not find; they shall lose their sigh and hunger for this bread, finally even as when we cease to use out limbs--our limbs become helples and lost to us. And when we ceas to use our spiritual powers God am His Kingdom are lost forever." "Man" Discussed." "Man" was the subject of th Lesson-Sermon in the Church o Christ, Scientist, Sunday. The Golden Text was from I John 3:1, "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God." . The Lesson-Sermon, comprised juotations from the Bible and from he Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: O Lord our Lord, how excellent Is hy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and .he stars, which thou hast ordained: What is man, that thou art mindful' of him? and the son of man, that hou -visitest him ? Thou madest him :o have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under His feet" (Psalms 8:1. 3, 4, 6). Speaks on Wells. The Rev. 0. Mall of St. James jutheran church spoke on "Wells" Sunday morning. "Water," the speaker said, "is wanted everywhere, on earth, in heaven and in hell. Water is a precious gift of God. One cannot live without it. "The Bible is a well, and you must dig into it in order to get the water of life. Search the Scripture Jesus tells us. We should read and study the Bible for it shows us the way of salvation. Let us receive the water of life through the well, the Bible. "Prayer is also a well. Prayer sends the empty buckets to God-heavenward, and the answers of God are ths buckets coming- down full to the brim with God's blessings. These buckets hang on a golden chain whose links are the promises of God. Prayer makes us, or helps to make us God's children. Without prayer one cannot be a child of God. Christianity can never be successful without prayer." See and Save A reminder to the people who need glasses. Realize your opportunity in having my unusual guaranteed examination and glasses service.
