Some people wonder at the Busy hustling
look of things in our store.
No mystery about it. It's simply buying
what people want and selling it for less than
they expect to pay. This is what has built
this business to its present- large proportions.

We are saved by hope and
slain by fear. We fear to trust
God lest his promise fail we
fear to believe that tomorrow
will bring aught but pain and
tribulation and distress. There
is a call for men and women who
have a robust faith and a robust
courage ; people who believe in
God and believe in themselves
and are ready to exercise their
talents and accomplish their
duty in the face of a snarling
sniveling and ridiculing age
Too many of us are under this
distressing bondage of feafr we
fear to stand counter to the edict
of popular opinion and popular
ways. It is prudent to have re-
gard to' public esteem but it is
irrational and wicked to let the
public pulse measure the time of
our own heart beats. The wise
seaman has regard to the winds
and tides and notes their direc-
Ition; ho employes those which
favor him and avoids those
which oppose- him but at mid-
night and dawn under cloud and
sun he guides his stately ship
not by the winds and tides which
are ever shifting but by the
everlasting stars. Popular opin-
ion penny wit beset the path-
way of every earnest Christian.
There are some who hearing
puny insolent barks of ridicule ;
think that a lion roare. Let us
not tremble let ua not forsake
the highways of faith and take to
the underbrush of conventional
living and convenience. Let us
keep on our course let us hold
fast our crown let us guide our
footsteps not by the jack lan-
terns of popular thought but let
us guide them by the stars.
God is living; He is watchine-r
He is helping. Let us believe
Him." Ram's Horn.
