BEDTIME STORY By THORNTON W. BURGESS t Lfttt'OX f!M£ TABLfi, LENOX, IOWA LIGHTFOOT MAKES A SURPRISING DISCOVERY P KOBAOLY there Is no happier time of the year for Llghtfoo tlie Deer thnn when the drendfu hunting season ends nnd he Is once more back In his beloved Green Forest with nothing to fear. All his neighbors called on him to tell how glad they were Hint he hnd escaped again nnd how the Green Forest would not have been the same had he not returned. So Ughtfoot roamed about without fenr nnd was happy. It seemed to him thnt ho could not be happier. {There wns plenty to eat, nnd that blessed feeling of nothing to fenr. What more could anyone ask? Me begnn to grow sleek and fnt and handsomer than ever. The days were growing colder and the frosty air made him feel good. Just at dusk one evening he went flown to his favorite drinking place at the Laughing Brook. As lie put couldn't have told why, but it wns true. Llghtfoot put his nose to the footprints and sniffed of them. Even had he not known by looking nt those prints thnt they hnd been made by n stranger, his nose would hnve told him tills. A grent longing to find the ranker of those footprints took possession of him. He lifted his handsome head and listened for some slight sound which might show that the stranger was near. With his delicate nostrils he tested the wnndering little Night Breezes for n stray whiff of scent to tell him which wny to go. But there wns no sound, nnd the wnn- dering little Night Breezes told him nothing. Llghtfoot followed the dainty footprints up the bnnk. There they disappeared, for the ground wns hard. Lightfoot pnused, undecided which wny to go. © T. W. Burgess.—WN'I Service. Phosphate Mining in Central Florida T ail/ crushing sheds nnd piles of phosphate rock in central Florida.

T HEY do the work that must be done; The world has little need of lines Like these—men first must fell the pines And build a shelter from the sun.

They do the work God had In mind: The world has little need of more, Though this is all they labor for. The care and comfort of mankind. They do the work that God began; The world has little need of speech, For they, with service, better tench Mankind the brotherhood of man. 'They do the work, the humble deeds; The world has little need of art Until the workers do their part, For out of them all art proceeds, They do the work by God begun; The world hns not a greater need Than hands thnt house and clothe and feed— They do the work that must be done, © DouKlaa Ualloch.—WNU Service. HOLD TWO AS ONE 1 TRAVELING PAPER BALL T HE magician shows two wads of paper, one in each hand, tie asks a spectator to hold one paper ball; the magician places It within the person's list. Then the magician pockets the second ball of paper. A mysterious snap of his fingers causes that ball to join the one which the spectator is holding—so the magician says, and his statement proves correct. Upon opening his hand, the spectator finds both paper balls. Three balls of paper are used In the trick. In one hand, the magician holds two pressed together so they look like one. This Is the "ball" which he places In the spectator's fist. Naturally, when he opens his hand, the spectator finds two instead of one. WNTJ Service. A History-Making Winter «T'M AFKAID you'll never be hap••• py," said a woman I know to a younger friend, "because you won't try. Even being happy takes some effort on your part." "At the first thought that may seem a theory for a very artificial kind of happiness. And yet when we really think about It, there is a good deal of tightness in this woman's idea. Take, for Instance, married happiness. A couple known to have been very happily married for 50 years summed up their success in these words: "Bearing and forbear- lug." In other words, they tried to make their marriage a happy one. And to do that they had to care more about living together happily than In getting their own way in many of a number of things upon which they most frequently have disagreed. In other words, they subordinated, other matters to their marital happiness. Now, aside from marriage, that matter of just being happy. Need it be spoiled by trying? I think not. One way of trying to be happy is not to put too much emphasis on things that cannot be helped, but to try to be happy in spite of them, to concentrate on the good things which life has brought us. Another way to try to be happy is to see the good in people, to think more about the virtues of those we love and those with whom we come In contact, than their faults. The faults will always be with us. Even such wonderful people as we ourselves have them! With most people they are not important enough to spoil the relationship or love or friendship if we keep them in their true perspective, giving full value to the qualities which we love and admire. That Is trying to be happy—do- Ing the best we can and not worrying about what can't be helped, thinking more about the good in people than the thorns which grow on every rose.

I. How to Inherit Eternal Life {vv. 25-28). 1. The lawyer's question (v. 25). The term "lawyer" here means 'one versed in religious law, the Scriptures," not "lawyer" In our modern sense of that term. It more clearly corresponds to our theological professor. The lawyer's object was to trip Jesus, to induce him to take such a stand as would weaken his Influence ns a teacher. 2. Jesus' question (v. 26). "What is written In the law?" He sent him to the law, the field which was familiar to him. Jesus thus robbed him of his own weapon. Though Jesus knew the motive of the lawyer, he did not evade his question. 3. The lawyer's reply (v. 27). He made an Intelligent answer, declaring that the entire content of the law was embraced In love to God and man. 4. Jesus' reply (v. 28). The straightforward answer went to the heart of the lawyer. Perfect love to God and man is truly the way of life. No man has yet had or can have such love. His sinful condition precludes its possibility. The lawyer keenly felt this thrust. He was defeated on his own ground and, therefore, convicted of guilt. II. "Who Is My Neighbor?" (vv. 29-37). 1. The lawyer's question (v. 29). "Who is nay neighbor?" This question reveals the insincerity of the lawyer. Christ's answer had reached his conscience and now he seeks to escape the difficulty by asking a captious question. Lawyer-like, he sought to escape the difficulty by raising a question as to the meaning of words. 2. Jesus' answer (vv. 30-37). Jesus' reply more than answered the lawyer's question. In the parable of the Good Samaritan he makes clear who is a neighbor, and also what it means to be a nelgb bor and what loving a neighbor means. Christ's answer had a double meaning. He not only made clear "Who is my neighbor," but also that the lawyer was not playing the neighbor. n. This destitute and wounded man, left on the wayside by the robbers, is a man who needs a neighbor. My neighbor, therefore is the one who needs my help whether he lives next door, or on the other side of the world. Love does not regard locality, national ity, or blood relation. Those whi have the spirit of Christ can see their neighbors on every hand. b. What being a neighbor means Our supreme consideration shoulc not be, "Who Is my neighbor?" bu "Whose neighbor am I?" To be a neighbor is (1). To be on the lookout fo those in need of help (v. 33). Lovi Is always on n journey. It is keen to discern the needs of those will whom it Is brought Into contact (2). To have compassion on the needy (v. 33). Christ's compas sion was aroused as he came inti contact with those who were suffer ing and In need. Those who ar Christllke will be likewise moved. (3). To give to those in neer (v. 34). Love does not calculat the cost of Its actions. Wheneve there Is the calculation of cos there is the expression of selfish ness. Many are willing to giv money to help the poor and needy but are unwilling personally minister to them. Many times th personal touch Is more importan than the material aid. (4). To bind up wounds, If w have eyes to discern we shall se many wounds about us that nee attention. (5). To set the helpless ones o our beasts while we walk (v. 34 This is the proof of the genuim ness of our love. Those who ar like Christ will deny themselves i order to have something to glv to those in need. (6). To bring to the Inn and tak care of the unfortunate (v. 34 Genuine love does not leave 1 service Incomplete. Much Chris tlan service is partial, leaving th man to take care of himself. (7).
