Cleaning and beautifying days
are near, when householders and
cities as householders, haui
away their ash heaps and refuse,
beautify, paint and generally
renovate. To give the cleansing
period cily-wide significance is
to make life and living more
worth while this summer. -s
April showers bring May flowers,
so April plans assure best May
clean-up campaigns. Of all
clean-up days ever observed by
cities. Richmond, Va., last year
probably set the best example of
ysti'inatic methods, general
. i " r. . i
on-orvanee aim Miiurssiui re
sults. The Richmond campaign
( (iviTi-d two weeks devoted to the
wholesale clean-up of the city
following an energetic organiza
tion and publicity campaign.
When the mayor issued his pro
clamation setting aside May 5 to
17 as clean-up period, officials of
Ihe city, health, schools and
civic organizations conferred,
mappeil out plans and set to work
with vigor upon their Augean
stable task, for conditions in
Richmond were not good; in tact
in sections they seemed hopeless.
The chief health ollicer issued
50,000 circulars explaining whai
it was proposed to do and police
distributed them to every house
and store in the city. Mass meet
ings were held for whiles and
blacks, who were addressed by
the max or and others. News
papers pave their loyal support
and churches and organized labor
held "anti-dirt" meetings, with
the result that when clean-up
time came, exerybodv was thor
oughly imbue, 1 with the idea. Tim
city was divided into four sec
lions by the superintendent oT
street cleaning, each section to
be vi-iteil on ditTerenl days dur
ing the first week and again on
ihe .-econd week for garba'-'e and
rubbi.-h. Friday and Saturday
were devoted to cleaning "the
streets and alleys. Not only did
he concentrate his own forces
upon the task, but secured all the
men and teams he could from
other city departments. Lectures
011 cleanliness were substituted
for certain other study in th
public schools during the two
weeks and a school holiday was
given in each section on the day
designated by the street cleaning
head. Cleanliness and sanitation
were "preached" into the chil
dren's minds and, through them,
to their parents. Each child va.?
given a report card to tell what
be was accomplishing. Hoy
Seoul s attacked the vacant lots.
Altogether, everybody in .Rich
mond observed clean-up time.
The change was remarkable; the
city actually was cleaned up.
Jtost of all, however, there was a
new cixic pride born and a strong
"keep clean" ordinance has al-
ready been passed to make tlie
results of the clean-up days per
Xn matter what may be said of

'Need of uniformity in divorce

That state has always been the

Pastor Russell's address was in the
forenoon. The Drama was presented
afternoon and evening and is to con
tinue for some time. The text of tho
Pastor's discourse was:
"Christ our Passover is slain for us;
therefore let us keep tho feast." (1
Corinthians 5:7, S.) He said:
por thirty-flvo centuries God's holiest
people, Jewish and Christian, have

The meaning of all this to the Chris-

slavery of sin to all who are truly Ilis fabDVn. u7' brl' ln ever

when God sent forth Ills Sob, JeSus.

give His flesh for the life of the world.
As a result of that redemptive wort,
the Father highly exalted Him to the jesUs as the great Messiah, said, "Be

Two Abrahamic Seeds.
First the natural, afterward the splr-
itual, is God's order, the Apostle tells
us. (1 Corinthians lo:40.) In one sense
of the word, the entire posterity of
Jacob were the heirs of God's Promise
to Abraham. The first privilege was
guaranteed to them under the Law
covenant- lUit as UOd Xoresaw, the
Jews were uuable to keep that Law
Covenant because, like the remainder
of humanity, they are all imperfect, all
sinners, and because God's Law is per-

ifested their faith and obedience even
unto death. Hebrews 11:38-40.
These Ancient Worthies endured not
In vain. They have the promise of a I

The sin of the world Is the Adamic
sin. By one man's disoDeaience, sin
entered the world. The penalty of that
sin was not eternal torment nor purga
tory. But, as the Apostle explains and
as we also read in Genesis, the curse.
