Simon's wife's mother, and Jit sunset!
all' the alck who gathered about Si
mon's door. Tbe record of the first
part of the day la found In Luke lv, a*
well as in Mark, and the record of the
rest of the day Is found in Matt, vlll, ■
as well an In Luke Jv, The record of
'• this and every day of His public mln-
1 Istry la well summarized In Acts z.
38, “Anointed with the Holy Ghost and
With power He went about doing good j
and bcalblg nli that were oppressed of
the devil., for God was with' Hlui.” |
This also ought to be true In some
measure of every believer, for the life
of Jesus should be manifest In us (11
Cor. Iv, 10. 11). One bss said that tbe
eye of tbe world takes in more than
the ear and that Christians' Uvea are
tbe only religious books tbe world
reada. Therefore there la not ao pow
erful a sermon Tn the world as a con
sistent Christian life.

Is spoken of as "Ills own city” (Matt.

'kingdom and healed all manner of sick
ness and disease (Matt. Iv, 23). John
the Baptist was now In prlaon, and onr
Lord was probably In the bitter part
of His first year's ministry. As He
taught the people heard that which
they were not accustomed to, for He
taught with authority, no raid only
what the Father told Him. His test
book was tbe law, the prophets and tbe :
psalms, and He expounded In nil the
Scriptures the tilings concerning Him
self (John ill, -18. 40; Luke xxlv, 27.
44, 4.7). Just the same teaching and
exposition are needed today, and those
who teach otherwise than according 1
to tlio Scriptures are not following our

THE COTTON CRAZE
Almost every farmer In this ^cotton
has gone crazy on thocotton'qnestion.
We heard a farmer say recently, a
man whom we have always regarded
as a good farmer that he was going to
pot his entire crop in cotton melons and
cans, in the name of this prosperity
whloli we now enjoy, we protest.
There is money in ootton at present
prices; we all know that. - Bat how
many farmers ore there in Thomas

And before they can raise another crop collecting ll-KhtMui City World!

business is almost like cambllng-if A WHISTLER PICTURE.
It Is In business, where cold calculation
so largely takes tbe place of feeling.
But tbe truth la that nowhere else are
manners of such Importance as In ev
eryday dealings. There Is no capital
and equipment any young man cab
rnavs that will pay blm better tban
good manners. There Is no possible
calling far which this docs not better
fit him. If he has brains the world
owes him something, but unless he baa
good manners he will hare a hard time

"Speak unto us smooth things, prophe

rael to cease from before ua” (Isa. xxx.
10, 11). Saying truo things about Je
sus Christ as this man dkl or as the
Woman did at Philippi (Acta xvl. 17) Is
not necessarily evidence of a true
knowledge of 1 Jesus; yet there are peo
ple even among the preachers whose
knowledge or Jesus does not seem to
esceed.that of these evil spirits. Where
there le no true reception of Jesus
Christ as the Saviour of sinners there
Is no life eternal (John L 12: I John v.
