The Christian Endeavor, Intermediate Girls Society, and Presbyterian Bovs Club will meet at 7 P. M. By NEWMAN CAMPBELL "THE EARTH is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. "For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. "Who shall ascend into the hill of thc Lord ? and who aha]] stand in His holy place? "He that hath clean hands and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. "He shall receive the blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. "This is the generation of them that seek Him. that seek thy face, O Jacob, Sclah," This is part of the 24th psnlm and I think everyone would do well to memorize it. Thc whole lesson impresses on us thc happiness that will come if we do what is right--try to live a Christian life, as Jesus would like us to. Peter says, "Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous. Not rendering evil for evil or railing for railing, but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. "For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile." Further he said: "If ye suffer for righteousness* sake, happy are CoprriKht, 19J9. Kin C Fi ye; and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled: "For Jt is bettor, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing." Peter wrote this letter to his | friends in Asia Minor, for they were being" persecuted for their belief, and he wanted to encourage and cheer them. He too was constantly in danger, as you remember in last week's lesson, and was in prison, but was liberated by an angel. It really does bring" blessing", as Peter says, if you live "as brethren." In harmony, loving each other, returning good for evil, being courteous Being polite or courteous really is an expression of good will to those with whom we come in contact. Did you ever think of that? We are not happy and cannot feel successful if we go about saying hateful tilings. I remember a story I once read of ft woman who was called the "Golden Gossip," because she talked about people, but said only good things, and only with the idea that she mipht help people. We ail can be "golden gossips," can we not? And how · much happier we will he if we are that kind rather than the mischievous type who go about saying hate/u] thing's. It is nearly 2,000 years since Peter and the other disciples preached, but what Peter said still holds true. You may be persecuted, or misunderstood, but if you try to love one another, to be good to those who use you, and to be useful and good in the sense that Jesus meant, it will make you happy. And, what is more important, it will help, if only in a very tiny way, to bring 1 abou't the better world feeling that is ao needed today. Syndicate. Inc.

Christmas, so called, by their apathetic indifference and compromises today are hurting the cause of religion more than the iniideiily of unbelievers.
