in carrying on the national "Eat

campaign, and all sheepmen were
urged to lend all possible financial
support to the campaign.
Lamb pool marketing was favor
ed in counties where farm flocks
of sheep predominate; with the be
lief that success of the pool sys
tem is dependent upon the proper
grading of lambs previous to ship
ment. Commission brokers were asked
to voluntarily reduce their charges
during these times of economic
stress and submit revised schedules
to the secretary of agriculture for
his approval and authorization of
effectiveness, with the understand
ing that the growers' organization
will concede a raise in charges
when conditions justify.
The National Woolgrowers' ree
ommedation that a five-cent per
head stock-yard charge be granted
as an emergency measure, was en
dorsed, with a vigorous campaign
sanctioned to obtain such a charge,
the understanding to be that the
charges may be advanced when
normal conditions again prevail.

PEDDLERS OF DISCOUR
AGEMENT. . '
"Our brethren have discouraged
our hearts." Deut 1-28.
Moses is here speaking of the
ten spies who brought back the
cowardly report about the giants
and walled cities in Canaan, and
who thus spread dismay in the
camp of Israel, just as they were
ready to enetr into the Promised
Land. The result was tremendous
ly calamitous. Israel was turned
back into the Wilderness and shut
out of the Promised Land for forty
Discouragers like these ten spies
are ever among us. They are ever
going about, peddling gloom and
pessimism and discouragement ev
erywhere they go. They see grass
hoppers as giants. They see only
dark clouds and never the silver
lining behind them. They live in
the valley of shadows and never at
tempt to climb to the heights where
the sun is shining. They never see
the stars that shine and burn as
beacons of hope in the heavens
above. Not content to keep their
fears and doubts to themselves,
they go around quenching the light
of cheer and hope that shines in
the hearts of others.
How I dread to have these Ped
dlers of Discouragement come
around me. They never make you
feel braver, or stronger or happier.
They take the very heart out of
you; and make you feel as if there
were less to live for. They make
life and work and achievement
harder for us all! And what crimes
they commit! Thousands have been
turned back by them from the
Promised Land of success into the
Wilderness of defeat and despair.
Oh, let us be done with these un
worthy Peddlers of Discourage
ment. If we have been in their
ranks let us step out of their drab
company forever! If we have been
listening to them listen no longer.

What was it that made Jesus the
attractive force which broke all
records of his time in making
friends, and which has increased
until today, constraining all who
have ever heard of Him to raise
Him to first place in their thoughts
and life? The reason Is purely
spiritual. When Jesus is mention
ed we find ourselves in a sphere of
thought which covers the whole
ground of human Interest and
need. What the world now needs
more than anything else is the dis
position to follow Christ in every
direction. It means we will change
the course of our lives so we are
now living for two worlds instead
of one. The vision changes. We

Thomas Paine Was Early
Day Editor in Colonies
As the country pays tribute to
George Washington during this
year, marking the 200th anniver
sary of his birth, the United States
George Washington Bicentennial
commission reminds us that it is
well to mark with some thought the
anniversaries of other patriots
without whose loyal help George
Washington might never have been
able to achieve what he did.
On of these is Thomas Paine, who
was born on January 29, one hun
dred and ninety-five years ago.
This remarkable man was the son
of a Quaker who lived in Thetford,
England, a stay-maker by trade.
Like all sturdy English yeomen,
the father expected his son to fol
low the family calling, but young
Thomas soon tired of making stays
and became an exciseman. After
n turn nt this ho trfpH tpnrhinir In
London. But already he had shown
evidences of an intelligence far out
of the ordinary, and had gained the
acquaintance of Benjamin Frank
lin, then living in England.
In 1774, Paine emigrated to Am
erica, bearing a letter of recommen
dation from Franklin, and soon ob
tained the editorship of The Penn
sylvania Magazine, published in
Philadelphia. Even then the Am
erican air was full of the spirit of
Independence, and Paine not mere
ly swung into the movement but
rapidly forged to a place of leader
ship. It appeared that his genius
was waiting for just such an op
portunity, and, using his magazine
as a means of expression, Paine
launched the first of those writings
that soon inflamed the country with
enthusiasm for freedom.
This was his "Common Sense,"
afterward issued in pamphlet form
and circulated all over the Colonies.
It blew away every distinction be
tween king and commoner, boldly
Urged Americans to asert their own
national sovereignity, and so stirr
ed public opinion to the highest
In a publication of all Paine's let
ters and writings, the late Moncure
D. Conway presents htis remark
able writer as playing a mighty
part in the shaping of the future
United States. It is Conway's be
lief that Paine, by hsl clarion writ
ings, laid the foundation for the
Declaration of Independence and
even some articles in the Constitu
tion. We know that Washington
was one of his eager readers, and
that he deeply respected Paine for
th tremndous influence this writer
exerted in maintaining public mor
ale during the darkest moments of
the Revolution. Indeed, Paine's
famous broadside beginning "These
are the times that try men's souls,"
was written, it is said, on the head
of a drum when Paine was a sol
dier under Washington's command
and when the discouragements of
the retreat across the Jerseys had
dashed public support of the war
to its lowest depths.
In the fall of 1776 Paine enlisted
as a volunteer in the -Continental
Army and became aide-de-camp to
General Greene. But military du
tls, far from stopping his pen, only
gave him a more Intimate insight
with which to write, and during
this period with the army Paine
began that series of 16 pamphlets
which he assembled under the gen
eral title of "The Crisis." Thede
maintained his reputation as one of
the leading influences of the Revo
lution. But writing far from exhausted
all of Paine's abilities. In 1777 he
was made secretary of the newly
formed Committee of Foregln Af
establlshed by Congress. He served
one year as clerk of the Pennsyl
In 1782 Washington got him a
grant of $800. from Congress to con
tinue his writings. In 784 New
York gave him a tract of 277 acres
of land in New Rochelle; Pennsyl
vania gave him 600 pounds, and, in
1785, Congress awarded him $3,000
to keep him from want
With Independence won in Amer

struggle for liberty in France, and

He continued a prisoner until
James Monroe, the new American
minister to France, finally obtained
his release. But during his months
in prison, Paine lost favor with
many fo his former idolators by
writing his much-misunderstood
book, "The Age of Reason," an ar
gument for deism which many took
to be atheistic. This Work long
cast a shadow over an otherwise
doughty patriot and lover of lib
erty. Now his fame is emerging
from under this shadow, and his
truly remarkable genius and accom
plishments begin to shine for what
they were: writer, philosopher, sol
