"They that make them shall be
like unto them; so is everyone that
trusteth in them." Psalm 115-8.
If we make an idol, or worship
an idol, we shall become like the
idol we worship.
Some one has said: "Whatever
sits at the summit of any man's
ambition is his god, no matter what
other god or gods he may profess
to worship and serve. '
And if we make and worship
idols we shall be hollow as the idol
is hollow; we shall be senseless as
the idol is senseless; we shall be
heartless as the idol is heartless.
We may glitter as the idol glitters,
on the outside, but that is ALL.
There are as many idols today
as when the Psalmist wrote; they
have merely changed their form.
Not so many, perhaps, worship
sticks and stones, and blocks of
carved marble, or images bedecked
with jewels and hung with costly
draperies; but today, uncounted
millions worship money or fame or
physical beauty or worldly power
and rank; and in terms of eternity
and the "more abundant life" of
which Christ speaks, all these
worldly idols are as empty of any
lasting worth as the merest idol
ever set up.
We shall become empty and vain
if what we worship is empty and
vain; or fine and noble and strong
if what we worship is fine and no
ble and strong. So, there is noth
ing in all life MORE necessary for
us to examine CAREFULLY, than
the aims and objects of our wor
ship not merely our fancied wor
ship in Church but our REAL:
WORSHIP, in Church, in the
home, in society and in business.

commissioner s agent would inter
cede for them and obtain a scale
down in their indebtedness. Mr.
Scollard explained that any reduc.
tion in the amount of debts owed
by the farmer must be obtained
through agreement between the
farmer and his creditors. He said
that the commissioner's agent does
not take part in any such readjust
"The agent is ready with the
money to avance, on acceptable se
curity, so that the farmer can ten
der his creditors cash in settlement
for his debts but the commission
er's agent does not act as a media
tor or go-between in such settle
ments," said Mr. Scollard. In
fact, it would expedite matters ma.
tcrially If farmers fully understood
that if they expect to get a curtail
ment in their debts -by offering
cash to their creditors they should
know how much cash it will take
to pay off or curtail their accounts
before they apply to the commis
sioner's agent for a loan. It is just
as easy, perhaps more so, to settle
on the amount before applying for
a commissioner's loan than it is to
do so afterwards.
The principal purpose of mak
ing commissioner's loans is to re
finance farmers' indebtedness, par
ticularly second mortgages and
personal indebtedness. It has been
found that many creditors, partic
ularly those holding second mort
gages, are willing to agree to scale
down their loans when they are
assured by the farmer that he is
going to apply to the commission
er's agent for a loan.
Farmers who are heavily in
debt, of course, find it necessary
in many instances to get their
creditors to agree to a curtailment
in order that they can be refin
anced. This is rather obvious for
the commissioner's loan, when add
ed to all other loans against the
property of the farmer, may not
exceed 75 per cent of the appraised
value thereof and in no instance
can a loan of more than $5,000 be
made to any individual.
Farmers who obtain commis
sioner's loans are finding them of
distinct advantage in that for the
first three years they are not re
quired to pay anything on the priru
cipal and the interest rate is only
5 per cent, most of the loans being
made for a 13-year period. During
the last 10 years installments on
the principal will have to be paid
annually or semi-annually so as tc
discharge the debt completely with
in the period agreed upon."
Mr. Scollard said there is still
much misunderstanding among far.
mers as to the way commissioner's
loans are made and that adequate
security must be put up before
loan can be made. The property
must be appraised and a repor
