JE CANNOT think of anything
quite so foolish as trying to pre
dict what will happen next. There
has arisen an unusually large crop
of prophets in the past two years.
some predicting a speedy return of
prosperity, ethers telling us that
we are in for many years more of
We have our own opinions as to
what is going to happen, but we try
to keep them to ourselves. When
it comes to predicting facts, we are
sure of only a very few things.
We predict, for example, that
there will be a lot more cold weath
er than warm weather between now
and Spring. We -feel reasonably
safe on that point. We predict
that there will be either a Democrat
or a Republican elected to the Pres
idency next year, and we don't be
lieve anybody can hit it any closer
than that, as politics look now. We
won't take a chance on predicting
whether Henry Ford is going to
bring out a new car for 1932 or not,
but we feel safe in prophesying that
if he does he'll sell a lot of them.
We wish we knew whether the
price of wheat and cotton were go
ing up or down. We don't, but we
predict that, whichever way farm
prices go, the political farmers will
still be asking Uncle Sam to help
them out. There are a few other
things still in the future of which
we are certain. Water will con
tinue to run down hill, the sun will
rise daily in the East as usual, and
there will be just about as many
fools on wheels breaking their own
necks and others' next year as there
were this year. We can' tell wheth
er women are going to wear their
hair and their skirts long or short,
but we feel certain that whatever
any man says they are goiDg to do,
they'll do the opposite.
Outside of a few certainties like
that, because upon the unchange
able' laws of nature, human and
otherwise, we don't set up to be
any kind of prophet. But we do
predict that almost everything will
be different next year and succeed
ing years from what they are today.
It would be a pretty dull world
seems to us, if anybody could tell
what is going to happen next. What
makes life interesting is the varie
ty there is in it

America has it all over Europe.

PAUL IN PHILIPFI
Acts 16:22-34; Philippians 4:4-7
Rev. Samuel D. Price, D. D.
Trouble seemed as natural for
Paul as did preaching the gospel.
A syndicate owned a slave girl who
seemed to have the power of divin
ation. The evil spirits in this maid
showed their knowledge by declar
ing that "These men are servants of
the most high God." But they kept
calling out to the annoyance of
Paul and the hindrance of his work.
One result was that the men who
merchandised on humanity found
that their chattel was worthless
for soothsaying and started an up
roar against these men who had
part in freeing a life from slavery
to an evil spirit. Racial and relig
ious prejudice was stirred up to get
back at Paul and Silas with the re
sult that these good men were im
prisoned. But no dungeon could cut off their
approach to the Throne. Though
bleeding from the unjust beating
and with feet fastened cruelly in
the stocks, the spirits of these men
readied unto God. They began
with prayer because of the way in
which God had permitted them to
glorify Him in life and testimony.
Soon they involuntarily broke forth
into song and their fellow prison
ers heard them. This was amazing
enough but a still greater event fol
lowed in the earthquake which so
shook the prison that all became
When the keeper of the prison
sensed the situation he was about
to kill himself, thinking that all the
prisoners had run away. Paul ad
vises him that all can answer the
roll call. The presence of God was
recognized and the outcry made,
'Kirs, what must I do to be saved?"
The answer is the truth for today:
"Relieve on the Ixird Jesus Christ."
The Saviour was accepted forth
with and testimony was given in
the rite of baptism. The new life
was further expressed in the activ
ity of penitence s the jailer tender
ly washed the stripes of Paul and
Silas and furnished them creature
we usually call it the Fall of the
It must be admitted that we don't
rme very much of a Spring season,
n most pr.rts of this country. We
go from Winter smack into Sum
mer. We don't understand whtt
the Enp;lifh poets are talking about
when they sing of Spring. But ov-
r there they go from Summer right
nto Winter, almost. There is none
of that long-drawn-out season af
ter harvest, when the leaves are
turning and falling and, in the
North, at least, there is a touch of
rost in the early morning and the
sweet smell of fallen leaves and
Nature taken on a coat of gorgeous
color before shifting to the somber
gray of Winter.
Fall is the season of play for the
farmer. When the crops have been
harvested and the Fall plowing
done, there is a period before Win
ter sets in when hunting is at its
best, when it is a pleasure to be
jut of doors with nothing of imme
diate importance to attend to. It
is the season of relaxation after the
heat and strain of the Summer,
when folk can take time to sum up
the result of the year's work and
begin their plans for the next.
Thanksgiving Day, in most parts
of this country, marks the end of
Fall and the real beginning of Win
ter. Then we begin to look forward
to Christmas and thence to next
Spring. We hear travellers tell of
countries where the seasons never
change from one year's end to the
other. It seems to us that half of
the pleasure of life comes from the
changing seasons, and from looking
forward to the next change.
W. C. T. U. NOTES.
MARY A. NOTSON, Reporter.
Mr. Roy Glasscock, of Mt. Ver
non, Oregon, who is well known in
this county, writing to the Hepp
ner W. C. T. U., says:
"Here is a matter I would like to
have people make a little observa
tion upon. What has become of the
"old soaks" we used to see in num
bers around each saloon town?
Here in our county the typical old
soak is almost extinct, and the
very few survivors are all products
of the old saloon days. I think that
you will find that to be the situa
tion in good old Morrow county and
throughout the country.
"It is undeniable that there is a
lot of drinking among the younger
set, who seem to think they are do
ing something smart when they ig
nore or outwit law enforcement,
but when these would-be smarties
grow up, they generally leave this
foolishness behind and mostly make
good reliable citizens. The drink
ing is an evidence of fiapperdom,
and there are as many male flap
pers as there are females.
"When you begin to look for the
old soaks, it will be brought home
to you some of the things prohibi
tion has accomplished. Just now
the wets have fished the inert car
cass of old John Barleycorn from
the depths and are applying an im
provised pulmotor to his flabby lips
in a belated effort to bring life
back into his putrid tody, but sober-minded
people will observe
from what source 'all such efforts
originate and will not be misled.
"There has been nothing propos
ed that gives more promise of suc
cess than the law we are now work
ing under. Light wines and beer
will not do it as the wet element
would then break the law by add
ing to the alcoholic content to suit
their own ideas.
"We must go ahead with what we
have or admit that no law touch
ing liquor can be enforced. The sit
uation demands that good citizens
everywhere do their part to see that
the Volstead law is observed by
themselves and enforced upon those
who are not good citizens."
Mr. Glasscock also enclosed a
clipping containing a reprint of an
item found in the Minneapolis,
Minn., Daily Press of March 26,
1908, which stated that there were
4000 unlicensed liquor retailers in
that city at that time. And wet
propagandists would have us be
lieve the speakeasy and bootlegger
a.re products of prohibition. Moon
shining also went on in the "good
old days." In the four years from
1876 to 1880, the federal govern
ment arrested 7084 moonshiners
and seized 3874 illicit stills. In do
ing this, the federal officers lost 25
killed and 55 wounded.
