Action Involving Alleged Breach of Lease Settled A stipulation was filed in the office of the clerk Monday settling the action brought by Sam S. Zachariades against Nick Nelzel, alleging breach of a written lease on a South Federal avenue property. A settlement was made by the :ometh, and now is, when the payment of 5400 by the defend- rue worshipers shall worship a n t . he Father inspirit and in '.ruth: Tor the Father seekelh such to vorship Him." Read John 4:1924. Some terms are a contradiction w i t h i n themselves. Insincere worship is such a term; the ad- ective and the noun have nothing ,n common. Father George Tyrrell once wrote to a friend that we talk as though honesty were the simplest and most primitive of the virtues, whereas it is the last and rarest grace of a mature life. The surest sign of our growth in religion, he went on to say, is an increasing awareness of our insincerities and a resolute desire to purge them oul. The heart of worship is prayer. Whatever else we may think of prayer We find that it is a test o: honesty and a discipline in sincerity. Only a fool or a knave will pray insincerely. Here is -one sufficient ground for prayer · i| makes us aware of the insinccri ties, hypocrisies, and compromises in our characters, and wakens in us a determination to purge them out. Eternal Light, Eternal Light, How pure the soul must be, When placed within Thy searching sight, It shrinks not, but with calm delight Can live and look on Thee. Prayer:- Almighty God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, we may perfectly love thee anc worthily magnify thy Holy Name: Through Christ our Lord. Amen. The plaintiff's action sought the collection of $900 in rent and claimed possession o£ a lease that ivould have brought the total to J3.GOO over a four year period. The defendant had a counter claim for $305 for repairs. The plaintiff was represented by L. R. Boomhower and the defendant, by Brcese and Cornwell. Methodists Plan Church .
