What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

í,.* V, Something to ThinkÄböüt By F. A. TDALKER . T H E STEP B E Y O N D J UST a step beyond the barriers which have so long defied us, and we aré sure of our ground, certain of realizing our fondest hopes, and marching on and on with the victors. The thought thrills us with elation, but how hard it is to make the final stride when we are worn and weary. Human nature Is prone to lose cour­ age when the chase is tiresome. It Inclines to become disheartened when carefully worked out plans and calculations fail Immediately to pro­ duce anticipated results. The fatal fault with most of us is lack of patience, coupled with an incli­ nation to be governed by impulse rather than reason at the turning mo­ ment when everything is dependent on calmness and firmness of purpose. We incline to haste when we should go slowly and take accurate account ■of our energy, where we should con­ serve it, that our minds may not be filled with fear and finally overcome •with sickening apprehension. In business, as in love, most of our miserable failures result from our re­ fusal to consider seriously the step .•beyond. For some paltry reason, a whim of Uncommon Sense By ....... - JOHN BLAKE the fancy, or a laxity of activity, we find ourselves at the crucial moment weary of. the chase. So we sit In the inviting shade of a friendly nook, while our morj am­ bitious rivals steal a march upon us and capture the prize, only a step beyond our Impatient reach. The blame is our own. But the truth never penetrates our souls until the clear perspective ot years gives us a sharper vision which enables us to see our folly. It is not until then that we fully un­ derstand our shortcomings. To make amends for our own de­ ficiencies, we proceed to pass around advice to our intimates, which, as a rule, falls on barren ground. They know us 1 , There is but a step between suc­ cess and failure, likewise but a step between hope and despair. When the occasion comes for action very few of us, alas, know how to make the step, though it is inviting and has an air of simplicity. And yet there is probably no other movement more vitally important to man’s future success than the step just beyond. (© by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.) CLAY By DOUGLAS MALLOCH A MAN, they say, it* made of clay; Undoubtedly It’« true. But then one finds so many kinds Of clay—now haven’t you? Along the creeks are yellow streaks Of clay that wouldn’t do. I know the mushy sort of slush Would never make a man; He’d fall apart before you start, Would crumble in the pan. That’s hot the ditch of clay in which Humanity began. And in the yard Is clay so hard, So shrivelled up and dry, So rough and cold with musty mold And full of alkali No love nor wit could soften it— You wouldn’t even try. But there is clay beside the way That’s solid yet will bend, That gives and takes—the kind that makes A fellow and a friend, That, once you choose, you never lose, That bolds until the end. So don’t begin with clay too thin, Nor start with clay too thick. The plastic kind you’ll always find The best to do the trick. Just add a hand of good, old sand—■ And then you’ll have a brick!

Life is a 'good deal like a hurdle race. The next hurdle doesn’t look so high when you have taken three or lour like it. But it is the next hurdle, not the lust one, that you must think About. However gracefully you cleared the Just one, your problem Is getting over the one just ahead. Take advantage of all the confi­ dence you can get out of what you have done. But always remember that it is what is still to be done, that is going to count. Napoleon Irritated his boasting gen­ erals by answering their stories of battles won with the query, “And what did you do the next day?’’ It is hard to be able to bask in the light of past accomplishments. Pleas- nnt it is to sit hack, after doing some­ thing difficult, and admire ourselves ior doing it. But life is like a moving sidewalk. You have got to keep up with It or get off. And we are all born with an instinct that prompts us powerfully not to get off. Keep your eye on the next hurdle. 'That is the hurdle that is of vital in­ terest to you. It is the one on which you must concentrate all your cour­ age and all your energies. For if you don’t get over It, you are out of the race, and all the hurdles you have taken before have gone for siothing. If you have had a little success, make it a big success. Put the hurdle up a little higher. If you have done one job well, find a tougher job, and do that better. That Is what makes progress, and progress is necessary to the prosper­ ity and happiness of every hpmnn be­ ing just as it is necessary to the pros­ perity and happiness of the whole hu­ man race. There will he plenty of hurdles to take. But when you have taken one make ready for another. For success is just one hurdle after another, and the man who takes them us they come Is the man who wins out. (Copyright by John Blake.)

REFERENCE M ATERIAL — Joshua 24:32, Psalm 105:16-22; Hebrews 11:21- 22 . PRIM ARY TOPIC— Joseph F o r g ivin g Brothers. JUNIOR TOPIC— Joseph, the F o r g iv ­ in g Brother. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOP­ IC— Joseph as Son and Brothor. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOP­ IC— The Inspiring Example o f Joseph. While the climax of the story Is reached in Joseph’s revelation to his brethren yet his life should be briefly sketched In order to get the full force of this climax. I. Loved by His Father; Hated by His Brethren (Genesis 37). The be­ trayal of the father’s partiality in­ creased Ids brothers’ hatred for him. His dreums were prophecies of God’s dealing with them. II. Sold Into Slavery (Genesis 37). So Intensely did they linte him that they proposed to kill him. This mur­ derous purpose was turned aside by the proposition to sell him into slav­ ery. They sold him to merchantmen who were going down into Egypt and in turn they sold him as a slave. III. Cast Into Prison (Genesis 30). While serving as a slave he was false­ ly accused and sent to prison. Jo­ seph’s character had so impressed Potiphar that he doubted his wife’s charges against him. If he had be­ lieved her he would have put tills Hebrew slave to death. IV. Made Prime Minister (Genesis 41). Though falsely accused and im­ prisoned the hand of the Lord was so upon him that he was soon exalted to the throne of Pharaoh. V. His Dealing With His Brethren (Genesis 41-44). He dealt harshly with them, desiring to test their char­ acters before revealing himself to them. VI. Joseph Reveals Himself to His Brethren (Genesis 45:1-15). 1. Alone With His Brothers (vv. 1-2). When his pent-up emotions could no longer be restrained he ordered all the men to withdraw. Here alone with his brethren he made himself known to them. There are some emo­ tions too sacred to disclose in the presence of unsympathetic men. 2. Conscience Smitten Brothers (v, 3). When Joseph disclosed his iden tity they stood condemned in his pres­ ence. They were smitten with a guilty conscience. A score of years before they had put him into a pit to die, but inter lifted him out and sold him Into slavery. Now they are before him with reversed positions. They are at his mercy. Some day every man shall face his sins unless they be canceled in the blood of Jesus. 3. Divine Providence Interpreted (vv. 4-8). (1) His gracious Invitation (v. 4). “Come near, I am your broth­ er.’’ How like tiie Savior. He Is say­ ing unto sinners who have wronged him, “Come near, I am your brother.\ (2) “Be not grieved\ (v. 5). He sought by these words to allay the distress in which his brothers were. Jesus is saying the same kind words to repent­ ant sinners today. (3) “God sent me to preserve life\ (vv. 5-8). God turned tiie wicked thoughts of these brethren to good. God is today making the wrath of men to praise him. All that Satan can do but furthers God’s pur­ poses. The very wicked thoughts oi these brothers in attempting to de­ stroy Joseph were turned to the pres­ ervation of their lives. 4. Joseph's Message to His Father (vv. 0-13). (1) “God hath made me Lord of Egypt” (v. 9). He made them lirsten to his father with tiie assur­ ance that God had elevated him to a place of lordship in Egypt. (2) Urgent Invitation (w . 9-10). Ills father Is Invited to come, bringing his children, grandchildren and flocks. This must have been a great and Joy­ ful surprise to Jacob when famine and death were facing him. (3) Promise of nourishment during famine (v. 11). Jospeh did not allow his prosperity to make him selfish. His character stood the test o f prosperity. (4) Tell father of all my glory in Egypt (v. 13). This was not boasting but an effort to con­ vince his father of his ability to care for him. 5. Joseph’s Forgiving Love (w . 14- 15). Joseph weeping upon the neck of his brethren Is a most touching scene. There was entire forgiveness; there was full reconciliation. This transcendant scene causes Joseph’s character to shine forth in its true glory. a r e l i k e C l o t h e s The appearance o f your walls is the index o f the impression m a d e u p o n oth e r s b y you r home.

Low Priced Land—the Last Great West In Western Canada you still can buy virgin prairie land at $15 to $20 per acre, on long terms if desired, near to town, railroads, etc.—land such as has for many years produced the world’s prize winning wheat, oats, barley, flax, rye. alfalfa. Canada had no 'war time’’ land boom; prices are not inflated — you get Rent Now—Buy Later Pay Out o f Profit» in on the ground floor. Taxes Favor the Farmer as Values Increase The tax laws o f Western Canada encourage the producing farmer. The tax on land is •reduced when it is brought under cultiva­ tion-while on your buildings, machinery, improvements, personal property, automo­ bile, there is no tax at all.
