Janie Engiish, Reporter
It was a beautiful Sunday morn
ing and we enjoyed another inspir
ing sermon by our pastor- His text
was taken from St. Luke 1:44-45.
Theme "Looking for Jesus.” Jesus
was looked for among His km peo
ple. tiien among His acquaintances
but not any of them had seen Him.
The world is looking for Jesus to
day. Have you found him in your
sould? To some people He is a
con ular, to Rome He is a burden
pbebarer, what is He to you? Jesus
is in the world everywhere, if we
will only open up our hearts and
let him in.

Green F ingers
By RUTH TAYLOR
Happy indeed are those fortun

land where they can watch and
tend growing things. And doubly
fortunate are those with “green
fingers” who have a kinship with
the elements of nature, those at
whose touch the earth blossoms
My grandmother was one of
these. Give her a plot of ground
no bigger than a pocket handker
chief and she started a garden- It
was a haphazard sort of affair, for
flowers bordered the vegetables
and w’herever there was a spare
inch of eather, she started some
thing growing. She was a spend
thrift of time and hospitality but
a miser when it came to buying
anyything she could grow. Her
garden was also her joy and her
comfort, for she used to say if you
had a quick temper and an impa
tient disposition, there was no cure
like a garden—you could watch all
of life in it aftd you learned to
wait patiently for the fruit of

only that we may all be well fed.
but that our neighbors overseas I
may have food.
We must tend our gardens
carefully this yeyar. But in our
garden, both of the soil and of
life, we must take care to plant
the right seeds. We must watch
over them, watrieng with care, not
washing out the young plants
with floods of emotions nor letting
them damp out under the dank
chill of indifference. We must weed
I out the false growths, the the

smothering things that suck the

immutable laws of nature fulfill

| us weed out our unreasoning
hatreds and prejudices and throw
them on the compost heap or burn
them up Let us grow only those
plants which nourish or give
beauty—and let us grow only
those plants which nourish or give
beauty—and let us border our
our gardens with the bright pinks
of friendliness, the fragrant mig
nonette of understanding, the pur
ple pansies of thoughtfulness.
And let us remember that a
garden blooms not for one alone,
but for all. As Henry Van Dyke

1$ THERE SUCH A THING AS
“No”—claim medical authorities, who ought to
know! Nature has so constructed and physi
cally endowed woman that in many cases she’s
apt to suffer certain distressing symptoms
during her life. For instance, when she enters
womanhood—or during the menopause, the
period when fertility ebbs away.
Now if on ‘certain days’ of the month—fe
male functional monthly disturbances are
causing you to suffer irom pain, nervous dis
tress and feel so tired, cranky, you snap at
your children and husband—then do try Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to relieve
such symptoms. It’s famous for this purpose.
1 Mode ESPECIALLY For Girls end Women '
Pinkham’s Compound does more than relieve
such monthly pain. It also relieves accom
panying nervous tension, irritability and weak,
highstrung feelings—when due to this cause.
Taken regularly thruout the month — this
great medicine helps build up resistance
against such distress. A thing any sensible
woman should want to do!
Lydia Pinkham’s Compound is also very -
effective to relieve hot flashes and those funny,
embarrassing feelings during the years 38 to
52—when due to the functional ‘middle-age’
period peculiar to women.
Pinkham’s Compound is worth trying!
