use the word “hate” without
thinking about the depth of its

grim results of one or more hate
The Good Book tells us that
“Whosover hateth his brother is
a murderei.” Describe the condi

Dollars cannot express the value
and loss and injury from this
wreck, and all because it is be

(low down) enough to hold hate
in his heart and seek to express
it in this cruel manner. That lit
the malice that you may have
should be destroyed because it may
magnify itself to an uncontrolla

NATIONAL BAPTIST “REST
HOME" PLANS DEVELOP
This site which the National
Baptist Convention owns at Miz
pah, N. J., uj>on which the pro
posed Baptist Rest Home will be
constructed is located in one of
the most advancing and thriving
communities of this age.
Mjizpah is located within 20
miles of Atlantic City, the play
ground of the world, and is only
40 miles from Philadelphia the
third largest city in the United
States. It is bounded by the
Harding Highway on one side and
the Black Horse Pike on the oth
er and the two are connected by
a State Highway running through
the town of Mizpah.
While Mizpah is universally
known for its rich loamy soil which
is considered of excellent quality
for truck farming it also has the
many features of a rapidly ex
panding city. The many edibles
which are raised in Mizpah find
a ready market in the large cities
such as Atlantic City, Philadel
phia and New York.
