THE FIRE SITUATION.
MORROW COUNTY is suffering
an untold loss from fires now
raging in the forests within her
boundaries. Hundreds of acres of
timberlands have already been cov
ered and the end is yet uncertain.
Officials in charge of fighting oper
ations declare that the situation is
much worse than people on the
outside have any idea. It is possi
ble that fires now going will burn
until the rainy saesou in the fall
if the county does not receive a
good general soaking before.
No means of checking the spread
of the flames is being spared by the
forest officials, as is evidenced by
the hundreds of men, loads of sup
plies, tractors and airplane that
have gone on the job this week.
But the task of holding the fires is
tremendous. When the big electric
al storm struck Thursday humidity
was at a very low point, continuing
low Friday and Saturday. Every
thing within the forest was as dry
as tinder and nearly everywhere
the lightning struck fires were
started, some of which grew to
large proportions in a very few
hours. The humidity began to rise
Sunday and fighting conditions be
came more favorable, but with the
start already gained by the fires it
seemed almost hopeless that enough
men could be put on in time to pre
vent their spreading over a much
Officials are appreciative of the
cooperation received on every
hand by local people who have
helped a lot in the fighting. True,
this spirit of cooperation is com
mendable, and it cannot be carried
too far. Foresters are but helping
to protect our resources. Even
though they are working for the
government, and hence are servants
of the people, they cannot be ex
pected to perform miracles, and it
is to the interests of everyone in
the county to help them in every
In the final analysis, our forests
in Morrow county are probably our
most valuable resource. From lum
bering they may not bring such a
great sum, but as a watershed and
range protection, they are of untold
benefit So, while much of the area
burnt over may be scrub and second
growth timber the damage to range
and watershed is tremendous, and
it behooves all of us to aid in forest
protection if the future prosperity
of the county is to be insured.
CARRANZA, good will flyer, has
passed to his reward. And in the
midst of mourning for the brave
flyer, citizens of both Mexico and
the United States were shocked by
the news of the assassination of
General Obregon. Mexico has lost
two of its finest, two great souls
whose lives were an inspiration and
an incentive to noble thoughts and
The honors paid to Carranza in
New York were impressive and
beautiful. While airplanes cruised
the skies overhead, a long, solemn
funeral procession marched the
streets. Thousands of American
military men marched with slow,
measured tread in tribute to the
great aviator, while many more
thousands watched, hats in hand,
eyes dimmed with tears. The sun

America and Mexico have wept
together over the tragic deaths of

Carranza's good-will flight was a
beautiful tribute to this country, a
magnificent gesture of international

FKOM FARM TO CITY.
PvISCUSSION continues on what
- many consider a major national
problem the migration from frams
to cities of experienced farmers.
Somo hold that eventually the food
supply will be considerably reduced
because of this migration, and that
this will cause greatly Increased
prices and perhaps endanger the
welfare of the people.
May we quiet these alarmists by
pointing out that while the move
ment from farms to cities still con
tinues, it has, according to recent
statistics, considerably abated?
On the other hand the number of
persons leaving the cities for the
farms is constantly increasing.
In other words, the exodus from
farms to cities may cease to be a
matter of great concern. No matter
what rumors may float about, ac
tual figures show that the tendency
of the people to move away from
the farm is decreasing rather than
It is true that many experienced
farmers go to cities in the quest for
easier means of earning money, or
to give their children the benefit of
educational facilities of the metro
However, there has been so much
improvement in the educational and
recreational facilities of small towns
and farm districts that already the

International Sunday School Lesson for
PAUL IN A PAGAN COUNTRY.
Rev. Samuel D. Price, D. D., Associate
General Secretary of the World's
Sunday School Association.
Mighty purpose to continue his
ministry possessed Paul. He was
not a quitter as John Mark had
been at Perga. This young man
might not have faced up to trouble
as Paul and Barnabas did at Icon
ium. Being driven out of any town
did not cause these missionaries to
say: "We have reason enough now
to hurry back to Antioch and safe
ty." Rather, they went forward to
Lystra and sought opportunities of
telling the people who would listen
about the long expected Messiah
who had come.
The usual approach in the differ
ent cities was through the syna
gogue services but none appears to
have been established at Lystra.
Meetings were accordingly held in
the open, wherever a group could
be assembled. Among the listeners
there was one who heard Paul's
words with particular eagerness.
He had been a cripple from birth
and was amazed to hear that by
spiritual power through One, call
ed Jesus Christ, fullness of strength
could come, and he would be just
like others in ability to go about
on his feet.
As he heard he began to believe.
That faith manifested itself in a
changed countenance, which when
Paul noted, encouraged the preach
er to command in His name, "Stand
upright on thy feet" Instantly the
cripple "leaped up and walked."
Faith found its expression in obe
dience. The throng standing about recog
nized that a wondrous miracle hau
been wrought in their very pres
ence. The healed man was a well-

somewhat checked. As rural life
becomes more attractive, fewer per
sons will leave the rural districts.
The solution of the problem lies in
making farm life more Interesting.
REAL FARM ADVANCEMENT.
THE farmer is just entering the
most progressive era in modern
agricultural history. The revolu
tionizing influence that will give him
a practical way to increase his effi
ciency and prosperity is farm elec
trification. This development is still In its In
fancy, but its success is indicated.
Speaking of what it will mean to
rural life Matthew S. Sloan, presi
dent of the Brooklyn Edison com
pany, said recently: "As electricity
has taken the back-breaking drud
gery out of factory work and great
ly increased factory production, at
lowered unit cost, so it is taking the
toil, the muscle work, out of farm
ing and reducing cost of crop pro
"That is one of the remaining
frontiers which electricity is break
ing down, and I do not think of any
one piece of work ahead of the
electric industry which is more im
portant in its social and economic
implications. My personal belief is
that farm electrification will con
tribute as much to farm relief as
collective marketing-or any scheme
of government aid which could pos
sibly be adopted perhaps a great
"It is a far cry from an old-fashioned
farm with its endless drud
gery to a modern farm with electric
service with an electric range, wa
ter pumped by electricity, home and
barns and outbuildings electrically
lighted, electric hay hoists, milking
machines, electric refrigeration for
general utility purposes. All that
electricity has done for the city

known character, always to be seen
in the market place as a beggar,
because he was a life-long cripple.
Whether always recognized or not
there is a religious sense in each.
The Lystrians had a pantheon of
gods, such as are described in both
Greek and Roman mythology. At
once the people, aware of the su
perhuman event that had just taken
place, shouted in their agreement
that their gods were actually and
actively in their midst in the per
sons of Paul and Barnabas. They
called Barnabas Jupiter their chief
god either because Barnabas was
the better built man, for we know
that Paul was inferior in appear
ance, or because Paul as spokesman
could not be thought of as the lead
ing personage, so he was styled
Mercury the messenger.
Credit must be given to the local
priests for their quick action in
bringing garlands for decorations
and oxen for a worth-while sacrifice
to these visiting deities. Here was
Paul's chance to stay a while in
popular favor and then turn that
situation to advantage in carrying
on his mission. Rather, he sought
at once to assure the people that he
and Barnabas were just plain hu
mans, such as they were, and to
gether they needed the help of this
crucified and risen Nazarene. In
deed, the occasion was well used to
proclaim the Gospel again.
Jealous Jews came from Antioch
in Pisidia and Inconium, places
from which Paul had recently been
driven out to stir up the Lystrians
against these men to whom sac
rifice had nearly been offered. A
mob was soon incited to stone Paul,
who was then dragged outside the
city, where he was left as dead. As
the recent converts stood about,
Paul by another miracle rose up in
full strength. The city was quietly
entered and the next morning both
Paul and Barnabas went forward
on their God-called mission.

THE BEST CONDITIONS FOR WORK
I suppose every writing man or any successful man is constantly
In receipt of letters asking him about his personal habits. The
correspondents all want to know under what conditions he does his
work best . They even Inquire as to what he eats and what kind of
clothes he wears.
One of these correspondents once wrote to Bill Nye, asking what
clothes he wore and how he dressed. He answered, "In the morn
ing I wear morning dress and in the evening I wear evening dress
and at night a night dress."
About the best rule for doing your best work is to find those
conditions that suit you best, wherein the brain functions most
effectively. What these conditions are varies in the case of differ

but to find the time when your own thoughts flow with the greatest
