A LENTEN MESSAGE.
We are approaching once more
the Church's great Penitential Sea
son. During the forty days of Lent
we are to endeavor more intensively
to examine ourselves and to endea
vor to drive out of our lives those
besetting sins which we find there.
We are to practice self-denial, not
as an end in itself, but that through
it we may gain even a faint appre
ciation of the supreme self-denial of
the Saviour. We are to endeavor
more earnestly than ever to imitate
in our lives, and to show forth
through our words and by our deeds
the example of Him who went about
doing good. We are to meet every
temptation, and the sin which doth
so easily beset us, during these for
ty days, even as He was tempted,
and we are, by the strength which
comes through Him, to strive to
overcome such temptation. By
prayer, through attendance upon
the services of the church, through
self examination and self sacrifice
let us go with Christ through these
Forty days that we may more fully
enjoy the break of the Easter dawn.
Let us strive, each one of us, this
lenten season to Beek to walk more
closely with the Master, and talk
with Him and find refreshment for
soul, mind and body. Let us strive
to come apart from the world, with
its cares and perplexities into the
desert of peace and quiet with Him.
Let Christ minister to us. Let us
seek to increase our faith in Him.
Let us, by prayer and by praise and
by thanksgiving, truly worship Him
and offer our lives as a daily sacri
fice in service to God and our fel

REV. STANLEY MOORE,
Wheat Outlook Gloomy
Says Government Data
The U. S. department of agricul
ture says of the future: There is
little in the wheat situation in the
United States and other countries
to indicate that prices for the 1930
crop of the United States will be
much different from those prevail
ing for the 1929 crop, unless fall-
sown wheat Buffers severe winter
damage or the spring wheat acre
age is reduced.
World stocks will be somewhat
reduced by July, 1930, from those
of July, 1929, but the world acreage
mav not be materially changed and
I yields are not likely to be so low
as in 1929, when they were below
average. World production of wheat
is keeping pace with increasing de
mand, so there is little prospect for
a general upward trend in prices
for some years to come. Farmers
of the United States must expect to
meet continued keen competition in
export markets from Canada, Aus
tralia, and later on, possibly Russia.
Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Case granted
to E. N. Gonty a mortgage on Hepp
ner real property, according to an
Instrument filed in the Morrow
county clerk's office January 30. The
mortgage was given as security on
a promissory note for $1200, dated
February 5, 1929, and payable two
years after date.

New Penney Ad Manager
Gives Newspapers Boost
John A Fitz Randolph, nationally
known merchandising and advertis
ing authority has just been appoint
ed advertising manager for the J.
C. Penney company, according to
word received by J. D. Cash, man
ager of the local J. C. Penney store.
Mr. Fitz Randolph, graduate of
Columbia college, New York as well
as the Fordham university law
school of New York, has been ac
tively identified with large organiza
tions In the capacity of a principal
executive since 1916.
In his capacity as advertising
manager for J. C. Penney Co., Mr.
Fitz Randolph will be in direct con
trol of the largest newspaper ad
vertising campaign put out in the
department store field by one or
ganization. The present campaign
utilizes more than 2000 local news
papers in more than 1400 cities and
towns covering every state in the
In a communication sent to Mr.
Cash, Mr. Fitz Randolph says, "As
a retail dry goods store institution
organized to bring the style and
quality products of the leading mer
chandising centers to more than
1400 cities and towns, the J. C. Pen
ney company is fully mindful of its
obligation as a local store institu
tion in every town that it serves.
"The local newspaper is the
strongest local force in the devel
opment of the community and in
the activities of community life.
"Throughout its entire history,
the J. C. Penney company has been
a supporter of the local newspapers
and our present plans include the
expansion of our expenditures for
newspaper advertising in all store
"Modern merchandising, especial
ly in the dry goods field requires
the ability to reach a nationwide
market on extremely short notices
as important style developments
"Women everywhere are familiar
with what is taking place in the
style centers of the world, largely
through their local papers with
their style news stories and the suc
cessful local merchant must be able
to tell the story of his merchandise
simultaneously with the news stories.
"The flexibility of control of news
paper space, the fact that the news
paper is a local institution serving
local needs, and the fact that every
worthwhile home in the country
now has its daily paper, are factors
in modern merchandising which
cannot be discounted."
