Uppar Dei Molnei Thursday, October 1 28, 1965 Sexton Has Practical Way Of Forecasting Weather SEXTON -Don't know if you use caterpillar bands or bushy squirrel tails to predict the winter ahead but this year Sexton has an even better indication that it's going to be a long cold one.

There are a number of reminders this time of the year that it's very much a farming community and when it's harvest time not much else gets done.

People in farming areas also learn to look for the unexpected on the local roads even though they are modern blacktop now. For instance that load of ear corn that covered the road for quite a distance last week when the tail gate of the hauling truck came open unknown to the driver. Sexton is still growing by leaps and bounds; at least the population was increased by one bouncing boy this week.

Confidence is based on faith, secure in the knowledge that God is with us, thdt the God who made us will not forget us. Confidence is an incentive. It takes us from the sidelines and urges an effort to do something about the thing that needs doing. Confidence, if based t on faith, is not soundly shaken by temporary 'setback or momentary defeat. Whatever your problems in life, develop an attitude of confidence. Get up and do something, knowing that your best effort will be rewarded. God will not forget you. -^ 1 ^Read your BIBLE daily and GO TO CHURCH SUN PAY These Special Weekly Church Messages brought to you by the following PUBLIC-SPIRITED BUSINESSES: HUTZELL CITIES SERVICE Floyd Hutzell, Service Station Roy R.
