PINEY WOODS SKETCHES
By Arthur Goodenough.
Some worship gods of stone and
Some bow to pleasure, some to pelf,
While others, still, for lack of these,
Bow down and worship self.
WHEN BOUGHS ARE BARE.
When December coughs are bare
Let the watcher not despair
For the milder April skies
Shall behold them green and fair.
LIVING AND DEAD.
Oh! the Shadow of Death is a thing
And dying with doubt and remorse
But I doubt in my secret heart if the
Would exchange their peace for
the cares of life.
THE GOOD DIE YOUNG.
The good die young, the proverb
says and so
I deem it is; what ever may be told
Our lives are measured, not by years,
It is iniquity that makes men old.
THE CHILDREN OF WISDOM.
Who then are Wisdom’s children?
They are those
Who covet nothing which they may
Disown alike life’s worries and its
And seek no Heaven but the one
“In our previous conversation you
said that while God is your owner
I can do as I please with you while
in my possession. What are my
relations to God in the use I make
“four relations are those of stew
ardship. You are a steward for my
use. In other words a trustee.

comes into my possession or for only

“In what respect is it different?”
“As evidence and acknowledgement
of his ownership of all that enables
you to make gains or have an in
come, God requires that you return,
pay back, as it were, one tenth of
the increase by acting as his stew
ard for its use in making his other
children in the world outside of your
own family and those naturally de
pendent upon you better and happier.
This tithe or one-tenth of your in
come God asks you to regard as holy,
and the use of it as an act of wor
ship, of divine service.”
“Can I worship and serve God by
the use of money?”
“You might well ask if you can
truly worship, and serve him without
the use of money. Remember that
TALKS WITH MONEY

Stewardship of God’s Tenth.
THE ROSE AND THORN.
God made the rose—l know it well—
But some times, when my hand is
It is so hard to understand
He made as well the cruel thorn.
THE LETTER E.
The letter E is at once the most
fortunate, and the most indispensa
ble letter in our alphabet. It is al
ways in debt, never out of danger,
and in hell all the time. Upon the
other hand, it is the beginning of ex
istence and the end of trouble. With
out it there would be no life, no
heaven. It is the keystone of hon
esty and makes love perfect. With
out there would be no hotels, money,
automobiles, edibles, water, ele
mosynary institutions, or excellence
in anything whatsoever.
CRIMES LAW SANCTIONS.
Shooting the chutes.

Running over a new song.
Smothering a laugh.
Setting fire to a heart.

Murdering the English language.
“Will you register on your party’s
“Yes, if it isn’t a cash register.”
I not only measure value, I am a re
ceptable of value. Can there be any
real worship or service where there
is no added gift or sacrifice of value?
Which has most value, words or
deeds? Prayers for missions, or
money for missions? Words of sym
pathy for the poor or money to buy
the food and clothing they need?”
“Don’t you believe in prayers for
missions and missionaries?”
“I most certainly do, but it must be
real, genuine prayer, not mere words
and good wishes. Mission schools,
churches, hospitals and the necessary
equipment for them, cost money, and
missionaries, teachers, physicians and
helpers are as much entitled to lib
eral pay for their work as you are.
Prayer for the success of missions,
unless you give your full share of
money to enable them to succeed, is
exactly like counterfeits of me, they
are of no value. In giving of me
for the success of missions and other
good causes, you are acting as a wise
and faithful steward of God’s tenth
of your increase and at the same time
you are giving to your fellow men
the only conclusive evidence that your
prayers are anything more than

a Scotch tourist found he had taken

we receive in thus using it?”
“Emphatically no. The penny from
the little child’s dime; the ten cents
from the clerk’s or the laboring man’s
dollar, which may represent a whole
day’s work; the dollar, a duplicate
of me, the tenth of the lawyer’s or
physician’s fee of ten dollars; or the
thousand dollars from a man whose
income is ten thousand dollars a year,
are all on exactly the same footing.
They all represent sacrifice, a gift
of value. By the payment of God’s
tithe each, in addition to the act of
worship, has made acknowledgement,
not in words only, but in deeds, that
God is the owner of all that enables
him to produce an income. As He
expresses it, ‘lt is God that giveth
thee power to get wealth.’ ”

GEORGIA —Fulton Connty.
I, Arnold Broyles, Clerk of the Superior
Court of Fulton County, Georgia, do here
by certify that the above and foregoing is
a true and correct copy of the application

the same appears of file in this office.

for doing good?”
“That depends entirely on what you
want to do with gain when you get
it. If you intend to spend your gains
upon yourself or for selfish purposes,
yes, it is a low motive. If you de
sire gain that you may be more use
ful, that you may do more good, that
you may be a faithful steward for
larger amounts, your motives are
high and pure.”
“To what purpose and causes
would you advise that I give God’s
tenth of my income?”
“My mission as an agent and as
a measure of value naturally gives
me a wide outlook. The usual an
swer to your questions is, give it to
the church or to some cause of the
church. Most people interpret that
answer to mean their local church
or the religious work of their own
denomination. The Jews were di
rected to devote God’s tithe to the
support of the priests and Levites
whose business it was to instruct
the people in the law and to min
ister in holy things.
“As I look at it, the church of
Jesus Christ is immensely broader
than Judaism and has an immense
ly larger work laid out for it to ac
complish. It is entirely too big for
