God shall supply ALL your needs."
Christ bears our burdens when
we follow Him. We "Lay aside ev

"Cast our burden on the Lord."
Christ must have strict obedience
if we are to be allowed a place as)
His followers. If we are to walk
in His steps, we must obey, why?
"For I have given you an example."

final Return '.lml
when the treasurer asked Anderson
what the money was for, Ander9on
said he didn't know, that it was
just some money he had on hand.
Further, the prosecutor said, the
state had shown that Anderson had
no receipt slips in his office for
monies turned over to the treasurer
so that the auditor had nothing in
the clerk's office with which to
check his findings in the treasurer's
What, the prosecutor reasoned,
could have been Anderson's pur
pose in not keeping proper records
of the transactions in his office, ex
cept he had something to conceal?
What, he asked, could have been the
purpose of the unexplained $900
turnover, except that Anderson be
came "scared" and was trying to
Nys pleaded that Anderson was
not a man to doubt others, and that
he had but followed a custom of
years in handling the business of
his office. The county treasurer is
known to be a man of integrity,
Nys said, and the clerk did not take
occasion at all times to wait for a
receipt when he turned monies over
to the treasurer. The standing of
Anderson in the community, evi
denced by its having elevated him
to the office of mayor, and as testi
fied to by leading citizens of the
community made such a charge as
had been preferred against him ri
diculous, the defense counsel plead.
Lonergan admitted that the de
fendant had been lax in caring for
the duties of his office, but plead
that any incrimination involved laid
just as heavily upon members of the
county court and other officials as
upon the defendant. He brought out
that yearly audits of the books of
all the officials had been made, and
that these had been accepted and
passed by grand juries many times
throughout the period in which the
defendant was accused of misap
propriating monies. He attacked
the state's case on many points of
technicality, and asserted that the
state had failed to prove that the
defendant had misapplied any pub
lic monies as in the indictment
