Mrs. Lillian Edwards, H South Right

caused by an explosion of a kerosene
lamp In order to save her four young
children from being burned.
After she had thrown the biasing lsmp

and her clothing scorched.
The lamp was on a table In the dining
room when It exploded, soon after the

Carpet ' and flames sprang up In the

"It Is not always easy for us to keep
fresh our spreclatlon Of the common
place in life, and yet we need to re

Is essential In gaining the great values.
We are Introduced to these values by
others who have appreciated them, and,
while having our minds open to receive
this testimony of others, we must at the
same time, be able to share the expe
riences of others," said President King.
He placed stress upon conviction, char
acter. Judgment and power to make one's
testimony vital, real and rational. If the
