More About Foot Washing. Dear Editor:—l have studied a great deal about the 13th chap ter of our Lord’s Gospel according to Ht. John, of course we all do not see things alike and it is hard for me to tell the reason. I have heard of some great revival springing from the sacred per formance of foot washing in the church and 1 am not convinced that what I said in my iirst ar tide was wrong; and I hope that I am no more a hardshell than your correspondent. lam merely try ing to keep God’s Commandments ing follow in the footsteps of our Lord and Haviour Jesus Christ and if that makes a man a hardshell I say amen praise the Lord lei’s all be a hardshell and dabbed in the water if Jesus say’s dabbed in it. How can do we important thing’s if we neglect minor tbingsf No I am not depending on any work’s that I can do to save me but Broth er, please tell us how to keep in a saved condition after we are washed in the bloo lof the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world if it is not following alter Chrisi and doing what he says do. Jesus made the way and there is none other name given uuder Heaven wh< reby we may lx saved, and we don’t have say if 1 am able to get to lleaven or if 1 am saved. Mo he says believe on the Lord Jesus C hrist and thou shall be saved Brother don’t be lieving mean a whole loti More than just believiug, One among the meanings is to follow the ex amples and teachings of Christ look if I then your Lord and Mas tar have washed your feet ye also ought to wa-h one another’s feit. John 13th, Chapter 14th verse how can we keep our selves unspotted fioin the world if itisnotby follow ing after him that made the way. Kept by prayer and meditation of of the Holy word, because there is a gruat many way’s that seemeth light in the eyes of man. lie kindly afFectioned one to another with Brotherly love in honour preferring one another; Romans 12-10 Brethern ii a man be overtaken in a fault ye which are spirituaal restore such an one in the spirit of meekness considering thyself lest thou also be tempted Salvation 6-1, yea all of you be subject one to another and be clothed with humility for God rc sisteth thep roinl an I giveth Grace to the humble. Ist Petts f> 5; this was no miracle unless we call it a miracle of uumil ty. Mary had just annointsd his head, now Lest his acceptance of Ill's should look like taking; he presently bal ancee it with this act of abasement. But why would t'lmst do this! If the diciples feet needed wadi ing they could wash them them selrs. A wise man will not do a thing that looks odd and unusual, but for very good causes and con sideiations we are sure that it was not in a frolic that this was done. No, the transaction was very solemn and carried on with a great deal of seriousness; this was oone that he might testify his love ti) the disciples that he might give an instance of his own volui tary humility and condescension that he might signify to them spiritual washing w hich is referred to in his discourse w ith Peter that he might set them an exam pie, and 1 under stand that whenever the Lord set an example for the disciples In set one for us also therefore those whom Christ loves lie loves to tin end when those that have called themselves disciples afterwards prove false. What will become of them iu the end because when we think we are something when w e are nothing, we deceive ourselves. Let us inquire now before it is 100 late aud we begin to sav Loid, Lord ami w e hear the Master say depart from me ye that work iui quitv brethren. lam not trying to down anybody or anything of the kind. 1 only want us to follow in the foot steps of him that made the way of everlasting life. Our call ing him Master and Lord is an ob ligation ui on ns to reeeiv and ob serve the instructions he gi>es us.

BANKS CCUNTY lOURNAJL, HOMER, GA., Suffered Twenty-One Years Finally Found Relief Having suffered for twenty-one years with a pain in my side, I finally have found relief in Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp Root. Injections of morphine were my only relief for short periods of time. I be came so sick that I had to under go a surgical operation in New Orleans, which benefited me for two years.

The iirst bottle did me so much good that I pur chased two more bottles. I am now on my second bjttle and am leeling like anew woman.

When this tube isiutlamed you have a rumbling sound or im perfect healing, and when it is entirely closed. Deafness is the result and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube re stored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever: nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh which is nothing but an inflamed condition ot the mucous surfaces.
