American Business Grows
Labor Says 50-50
Over the Sahara Sand
What Man Can Do
If you know HOW you can do
business anywhere. Sears-Roebuck,
under its new president, General
Wood, plans stores all over this
country and in foreign countries,
with constant expansion.
The Woolworth stores, growing
amazingly, now have eighteen
stores in Germany, called 25 and 60
pfennig stores, the equivalent of 5
and 10 cents.
American business understands
its business. And when it deals in
foreign countries it buys its goods
in the foreign countries, thus keep
ing everybody happy while making
On Saturday the executive com
mittee of the American Federation
of Labor will meet at Atlantic City
and decide, probably, not to take
sides in the national campaign.
Both national candidates are all
right, says Labor.
That is sensible. Labor, race and
religion should be kept out of pol
itics. Besides, organized labor can
not deliver its men, and does not
help itself by a declaration with no
result Mr. Green, head of the fed
eration, is a wise American.
Miss Katherine Locke, of Youngs-
town, Ohio, travelled miles and
miles over the sand of Sahara think
ing the sun would bring back her
voice that she lost. IT DID.
She visited the Gloul of Marakesh,
if you know who he is, in a dwelling
3,000 years old in the Atlas Moun
tains. The Gloul probably knows
as little about us as we know about
More interesting to many Ameri
cans, Miss Locke saw at Timbuktu,
pens where American slavers once
bought slaves from native chiefs.
Young men, playing jazz music
in night clubs now, would be amaz
ed to see these pens where their an
cestors once stopped on the way to
America. They would bless the
slave traders that brought the an
cestors here. We never know what
is for our good.

Man is a very able creature, a
real credit to his Maker. What he
can IMAGINE, he can DO.
Ellen Terry after eighty years of
happy, successful life, told her
inenas tney must not put on
mourning, but wear gay colors, and
rejoice in her long life, with rest
at the end.
She was a sensible woman, but
mourning is more than honor paid
to the dead. It affords relief to
those that survive. The widow of
India, if permitted, would be burned
alive with her husband's body.
Savage widows cut and otherwise
mutilate themselves to express
grief. To many civilized women, a
long black veil makes sorrow easier

God Not Far Away 1
From Each of Us
(Summary of the sermon entitled
"The Nearness of God." preached by
the pastor of the Church of Christ Sun
day evening, August 5th.)
In the July issue of the Atlantic
Monthly there appeared an article
by An Anonymous Banker on the
subject "The Sensible Man's Relig
ion." In this article he tells that
sensible" men believe in God, prin
cipally because of the need for a
cause or creator. However, inese
men seem not to feel God as a mov
ing force in their lives to any ex
Another expression of man s rec
ognition of something beyond hu
manity is found in Byron's "Apos
trophe to the Ocean," of which we
quote the first verse:
There is a pleasure in the pathless
TWa is a ranture on the lonelv shore.
There is society where none Intrudes,
Rv the deen sea. ana music in its roar.

What I can ne'er express, and yet not
Yet we are not left to the conclu
sions of cold reason or to the in
tangible feelings of the poet for our
knowledge of the existence of God,
neither shall we be content with
such vague conceptions of God as a
distant, mysterious force; for Paul
tells us (Acts 17:27) that "He is not
far from each of us."
The truth expressed by the Apos
tle is well illustrated by the exper
ience of Jacob. He had schemed
and tricked his brother out of the
birthright and patriarchal blessing
and then out of fear for his life he
fled the country. As he slept alone
on the plain that night with a stone
for a pillow , he-had a dream and
saw a vision of the angels on the
ladder ' that reached to Heaven.
When he awoke he said (Gen. 28:16)
"Surely God is in this place and I
knew it not." And there is not a
man or woman today who will not
say the same thing if they will only
stop their mad course long enough
to stop and think.
But it is not enough simply to
recognize the presence of God for
we must hear mm and heed. The
experience of Elijah (I Kings 18:11,
12) serves to throw light on this
matter. God was not revealed by
the violent wind, nor by the great
earthquake, nor by the consuming
fire. When God spoke and when
He speaks the "still, small voice" is
heard. Listen to the voice of con
science, my friends, for it is the
voice of God. Besides his message,
the Bible, the Word of salvation is
here that we may know His will.
In the next place if we realize the
presence of God and hear His" voice
we would worship and we would
know where and how to worship.
These questions Jesus answered in
his conversation to the Samaritan
womart when he said, (John 4:24)
"God is Spirit: and they that wor
ship Him must worship Him in
spirit and in truth." No longer is
worship confined to a place or a
form. God is everywhere and we
can worship anywhere restricted
only by the Truth.
Concerning the nearness of God
we learn two more facts through
the New Testament: first that the
poor and needy represent Him and
that we are to serve them as God
(Matt 25:40); second, that the
Church is His body U Cor. 12:27)
and hence his way of reaching men.
The "sensible'' men referred to in
the introduction of this sermon
were somewhat afraid of the church
while admitting that they might be
helped by church attendance. We
are not surprised that men are sus
picious of great ecclesiasticism and
of human power in the church and
of unscriptural names and practices
but we believe that if men could
be brought to see the simple church
of God, the church of the New Tes
tament, the church of Christ, Ujey
would recognize it as bringing fel
lowship with God and leading to
the fulfillment of all the worthwhile
desires and aspirations of the hu
among the books. On the sideboard
or console a piece of old silver gives
a suggestion of luxury that is subtly
convincing. Old prints either side
of the secretary; old pewter places
for the mantel shelf such well
chosen ornaments often give more
atmosphere and Individuality to a
room than many dollars spent on
new furnishings. .
Fresh Peach Mousse
Two cups whipping cream, 1 cup
puree, of fresh peaches, 1 tablespoon
gelatin dissolved in 2 tablespoons
cold water, 2 tablespoons lemon
juice, 1 cup sugar (beet or cane).
Add dissovled gelatin to hot fruit
juice and when cool and about to
set fold in' stiffly whipped cream.
Pack in mold, cover with ice and
salt for 3 hours or more.
An Appetizer for Summer Meals
Eggs in aspic make a very tempt
ing and substantial appetizer for
summer meals. Cut hard-boiled eggs
in half, devil the yolks and return
them to whites, put a half egg in
each individual mold, fill with aspic
or a lemon-flavored gelatin and put
in ice box to set

Remember This When Preserving
In choosing fruit for preserving
remember that slightly under-ripe
fruit is usually best because it con
tains more pectin or jellifying sub
stance than fully ripe fruit. If mod
ern short-process preserving rules
are followed, however, this point
can be disregarded, as these recipes
secure uniform Jelly texture thru
the use of liquid pectin.
