Christian Science Churches "Mortals and Immortals" Tvill be the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, on Sunday, May 17. The Golden Text is from I Corinthians 2:11, "What man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God." The Lesson-Sermon comprises quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations reads: "Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him" (Isaiah 43:5, 7). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook is the following: "In Science man is the offspring of Spirit. The beautiful, good, and pure constitute his ancestry. His origin is not, like that of mortals, in brute Instinct, nor does he pass through material conditions prior to reaching intelligence. Spirit is his primitive and ultimate source of being; God is his Father, and Life is the law ol his heinE" (p. 631. WANT-ADS Want Ad Rates—Up to 25 words, 25 cents for each insertion.

Some one in the crowd suggested that it was not a bust of Burns, but one of Shakespeare. The auctioneer good naturedly admitted: "Maybe you are right; that only shows how little I know about the Bible." Asked how he enjoyed a dinner given by an inexperienced hostess, whose company got a little soused, a critical guest said: 'If her cocktails had been as cold as her soup, and her soup as warm as her wine, and her wine as old as her chicken, and her chicken less tough than her guests. I would have enjoyed her dinner more."

Twice as many accidental deaths were reported last year in homes as in industrial establishments. I sometimes. wonder, says "On the Air" in the Independence Conservative, if some of the retail merchants who violently oppose the government's relief expenditures of the past two years appreciate what a part it played in their own business? For, after all, most of the money the administration was paying out in various communities was spent with the local business men and materially aided them in making the grade that carried them over the worst of the depression. The Herald received a pleasant call last Friday from John Stirn of Lansing, one of the democratic candidates for county supervisor, whose announcement will be found elsewhere in this issue. His old friend, John J. Dunlevy of the Lansing Journal, has! the following good words to say concerning Mr. Stirn's candidacy: "John Stirn, at the eleventh hour, and acceeding to the importunities of friends of both the major political parties, has filed for member of the board of supervisors, term beginning Jaunary, 1937, subject to the will of the democratic vote at the June primary. "Mr. Stirn has been a life-long resident of Lansing and Center townships, being born in the former and living in the latter while actively engaged in operating a 360 acre farm for 30 years, when he retired and moved to this city in 1929. "He has paid over $6,500 in taxes since 1897 and is a heavy tax-payer at the present time and therefore vitally interested in the question of taxation. He is the oldest son of Frank Stirn, a Civil War veteran, who lived on the old homestead six miles west of Lansing, now the property of his youngest son, George. "Mr. Stirn is prepared to give the duties of the office his entire time and attention if* nominated and elected. "This is his maiden effort as a politician but he naturally feels like making the best possible showing under the short campaign still at his disposal, and for this reason will greatly appreciate the vote and support of all democrats at the June primary." i A GOOD START?
