Saviour or Judge?
'The Father judgeth no man, but
hath committed all judgment unto
the Son." John 5-22.
A number of years ago, on a
splendid fishing stream a man was
trolling; he made a good catch and
in the stress of the moment he over
turned his boat and, as he could not
swim, he was in grave danger of
drowning when another boat round
ed a bend of the stream; the occu
pant of the approaching boat saw
the situation and slipping off his
outer clothes made a dive and was
able to rescue the drowning man
as he was going down for the third
Years went by, and the nearly
drowned fisherman was haled into
court on a serious charge; murder
was fastened on him and there came
a day when he must stand up andi
receive his sentence. All thru the
trial he had been noticed to study
the face of the presiing judge; then
would look away and appear to be
lost in deep thought. On the day
when he was to be sentenced, he
looked more carefully than ever at
the judge; and then of a sudden, he
cried out: "At last I know; Judge do
you not remember me? I am the
man whom you saved from drown
ing years ago; O' Judge, save me
now." The judge looked the man
straight in the eyes and said: "Sir,
I am sorry; you have had a fair
and impartial trial; you have been
proven guilty of the crime for which
you were arrested; the law leaves
me no alternative. That day, years
ago, I was your SAVIOUR; TO
DAY I AM YOUR JUDGE."
What a truth! And we face the
same situation, every one of us,
now. The Christ who gave Him
self gadly to save us for all eter
nity, while we are still this side of
the grave, will one day sit in Judg
ment on us every one. What will
be our situation then? The life we
live here and now, whether sinner
or Christian, tells what our lot will
be in the day of eternal judgment.

Egg Prices at Highest
Point Since Nov. 1931
Egg prices are now the highest
they have been since November,
1931, says a report on the poultry
situation from the office of the O.
S. C. extension economist The ad
vance of the past month has been
more than the usual seasonal ad
vance and is the result of a rather
sharp reduction in production gen
erally throughout the United States.
Tne aroutn with its resulting high
feed costs is reflected in an 11 nor
cent decrease in the number of lay
ers in farm flocks on October 1 and
a 3 per cent reduction in the num
ber of eggs produced per 100 hens

dozen eggs to purchase 100 pounds
of standard poultry ration. During
June, July and August it required
more tnan eignt dozen ee-ira tn hnv
100 pounds of feed. The figure for
September 1933 was 6.1 compared

Let's Quit Killing
Automobile accidents, injuries
and killings continued to increase
during September, according to re
ports issued from the secretary of
state's office and it now appears
that the record for the whole of
1934 will far exceed that of 1933,
with many more persons dead and
maimed from accidents caused
mainly by carelessness and failure
to comply with traffic regulations.
During September 24 persons
were killed in traffic accidents this
year as compared to 16 last year;
496 persons were injured this year
and 402 in 1933; there were 1825 ac
cidents this year and 1602 In 1933.
Totals for the first nine months of
1934 are as follows: 14,893 accidents;
218 deaths; 3,564 injuries. For the
same period of 1933, totals were
13,748 accidents with 172 deaths and
In Morrow county during Sep
tember of this year there were 8

Why Doctors Favor
a Liquid Laxative
A doctor will tell you that the care
less use of strong laxatives may do
more harm than good.
Harsh laxatives often drain the
system, weaken the bowel muscles,
and even affect the liver and kidneys.
Fortunately, the public is fast
returning to laxatives in liquid form.
The dose of a liquid laxative can be
measured. The action can thus be
regulated to suit individual r.eed. It
forms no habit; you needn't take a
"double dose" a day or two later.

Sponsors of the "Let's Quit Kill
ing" safety drive pointed out this
week that unless motorists and
pedestrians alike use more care in
driving and walking, with closer
observance of traffic regulations,
the present rate of increase in auto
accidents will result In staggering
Drunken driving is the major ac
cident cause selected for attention
during the current two-week period
of the drive. Traffic experts report
that while accidents from this
cause are not as numerous as those
from other violations, they usually
are more serious in results, because
the drunken driver is physically
handicapped in that it takes him
longer, after perceiving an emer
gency, to apply his brakes or turn
his car, than it takes the sober driv
er. This, in addition to the chance
taking frame of mind brought on
by intoxication, is what makes the
drunken driver such a serious men
ace, experts declare.

information in the official pamph
