When Someone Cares
When you meet disappointment, and yer feeling kinda blue •
When your plans all got sideways, or some friend has proved untrue;
When yer toiling! praying! struggling at the bottom of the stairs
It's like a panacea to know that someone cares.
Someone who can appreciate one’s efforts when he tries;
Someone who seems to understand and so can sympathize:
Someone who when far away, still wonders how he fares;
Someone who never ca>n forget—someone who really cares.
It sends a thrill of rapture through the framework of one’s heart;
It stirs the inner being till the teardrops want to- to start;
For life is worth livirg, when someone ver scrroiws shares—
It’s joy compared to heaven when you know someone cares.
The world is not all sunshine, for some dark days interpose;
There’s a cross for every joybell and a thorn for every rose;
But the cross is not so grievous, nor the thorn the rosebud wears:
Am! the clouds have silver linings when there’s someone really cares.

Not by might nor by power, but
by my spirit saith he Lord. The
Lord is doing great things for
Hillside Presbyterian church. The
members are all in tune waiting
for a revival- And it is the pastor’s
sincere belief that the “fire is go
ing to fall.” Although this church
has a membership of only 80 mem
bers its influence is felt through
out the entire west.
The average attedance is 60.
Most churches have only one third
of their membership attending the
services. For the success of the
church ,much credit is due Mr.
Olio Lewis ft r his untiring efforts
put forth in superintending the
Sunday school. Together with his
faithful worker s, Mrs. Jennie Le
wis, Mrs. Luvinia Jackson, Mrs.
E Marshall and Miss Bertha Rudd.
Speaking of Mr. H. L. Preston,
and Miss Ethel Webb( this ser_
vice's at Hillside as soloists will
long be remembered. Each faith
ful member is also due credit for
the church’s success. We are still
praying however that God will
touch the hearts of those twenty
who have found greater pleasure
in things of the world than things
of God. “Thou will keep him in
j perfect peace, whose peace, mind
is stayed upon thee.”

BAH AM FAITH
When Christ appeared with
those marvelous breaths of the
Holy Spirit the children of Isreal
said “We are quite independent of
him; We can do without him and
Moses ■ We have a book and in it
are found the teachings of God;
What need therefore have we of
this man?” Christ said to them
“The book sufficeth you not.” It
is no- possible for a man to hold
I to a bok of medicine and say “I
have no need of a doctor; I will
act according to the book; in it
every disease is named, all symp
toms are explained, the dignosis
of each ailment is completely
written out and a prescription for
each malady is furnished, there
fore why do I need a doctor?”
This is sheer ignorance. A physi
cian is needed to prescribe through
Jiis skill, the ^principels eff the
book are correctly and effectively
applied until the patient s res.
tored to health. Christ was a hea
venly physician. He brought spiri
tual health and healing into the
world. Baha’u’llah is likewise a de
vine physician. He has revealed
prescriptions for removing disease
from the body—politic and has re
medied human conditions by spiri
tual power. We may read in a me
dical book that a certain form, of
illness requires such and such re
medy. While this may be absolute,
ly true, the remedy is useless un
less there be violit:on and executive
l'orce to apply it. It is therefore
evident and proved that an effort
must be put forward to complete
the purpose and plan of the teach
ings of God in order that in this
great day of days the world may
be reformed, soul resuciated, a
new spirit of life found, hearts be
come illumined, mankind rescued
from the bondage of nature and
the baseness of materialism and
attain spirituality and radiance in
attraction toward the divine king
dom. ‘A Baha’i Fireside Chat.”
