THE MAN IN THE MIRROR.
"A man beholding his natural
face in a mirror." James 1-23.
The man in the mirror. You look
at him, you see him, so often. What
do you think of him : Do you tninK
he is genuine? Do you think he is
sincere? Do you think he is hon
est? Do ypu think he is truthful?
Do you think he is clean? Do you
think he is good-natured? Do you
think he is fair-minded? Do you
think he is charitable? Does he
appeal to you? Does he Invite your
confidence? How far would you
trust him? How would you like
him for a friend? Never mind
what others think of him. What
do YOU think of him? This man
you face so often in the mirror!
Do you really know this- man?
Have you ever taken time to get
acquainted with him? Well, sup
pose you do! Just walk right up
to him and say, "1 want to know
you; I want to know what sort of
man you are? There are some
questions I want to ask you." Then
go ahead and ask him whatever
you please. Question him along
the lines I have questioned you
about him. And look him straight
in the face while you are doing it
You need not hesitate. He will not
regard it as an impertinence. He
will not in the least resent it not
You may not find this man to be
all that he ought to be. Perhaps
you can give him some friendly ad
vice. Perhaps you can help him to
be a better man which will be of
benefit to you both. Take him
with you into your private room;
sit down with him, just you two
alone, and have a heart-to-heart
talk YOU and the man in the mir
ror. Do you have a church home? If
not start NOW, coming to church
here. You will enjoy our services
and our Bible school. In our ser
vices and in our Bible school you
will hear the Scriptures taught and
expounded in their purity, without
the addition of any man-made
rules or sophistries. We invite you
to come and find this for your
selves. "And ye shall know the
TRUTH and the TRUTH shall
make you free." John 8:32.

The value of anything depends
upon its intrinsic worth. For gold
man leaves home, loved ones and
native land and sails over seas,
crosses continents, climbs dizzy
mountains. For the precious dia
mond he passes through the same
strenuous experiences. But gold
and diamonds and position and
honor are not all there is In this
world. Put all the worlds, known
and unknown in one scale and the
immortal soul outweighs them all.
The real worth of anything depends
on what the one knowing its value
is willing to pay for it He who
created the soul knew its worth,
and so in exchange gave His only
begotten son. The redemption
price paid was not in silver and
gold "but the precious blood of
Christ, the highest and best gift
Heaven could afford." What shall
man give in exchange for his soul?

remember this: the organs of babies

forced. That's why Castoria is used

is specially made for children's ail
ments; contains no .harsh, harmful
drugs, no narcotics. You can safely
give it to young infants for colic
pains. Yet it is an equally effective
regulator for older children. The next
time your child has a little cold or
fever, or a digestive upset, give him
the help of Castoria, the children's
own remedy. Genuine Castoria al
ways has the name:
