conducting an exhaustive (investi-

with refeiflu o to the cost of pro-

a substitute for cotton as that
industry is already suffering from
over-production. In discussing the
subject, I'rpsident Radford of the

made the greater part of Texas a
cotton country and it will always
ratlin in the money crop of Texas
so long as the farmer markets his
crop direct from the harvest field,
but I believe with plenty of good
livestock and a silo a farmer can
successfully raise feed stuff and
he will be justified in planting less
cotton and raising more livestock

The Hedouin marriage does not

cuts the throat of a sheep and
spills the blood on the sand of his
fathoi-in-law's threshold and the
wedding is over.
In Japan, land of flowers, they
hold funeral services at the home
of the bride's parents t he night
she Is mart leu. This Is to show
that the young lady is dead to
her father and mother.
Among the Moneyn Arabs the
bride runs away and bides in the
mountains. The bridegroom hunts
i until lie rinds her or dies in the
attempt. If he Is lucky he will
lead her to her father's tent and
proclaim they are married.
The Swedish girl prays for a
rainy day on which to get married-
Then before she goes to the cere-
mony attired in her wedding
clothes she milks the cow, feeds
jtho calf and steals a breast feath-

AGREES WITH POST EDITOR ON
QUESTION THAT CHILDREN
SHOI I.lt ATTEND CHCRCH
The editor of The Host has called our i
attention to the fact that a large num- j
ber of the children who attend thej
Sunday schools do not remain for the
church services, i am glad that he
has done so, and I hope that lie has
started something that shall not stop
until a great reformation shall take
place in tins n atter.
The question he a ks is "Why are
they nut required to attend church
services? Someone may infer from
this that the teachers and olTiers of the
schools aie not doing their duty, but
from years of experience with the
faithful teachers in our Bible schools I
am sure that I can .-ay that all of the
teachers in this town are doing .11
they can to hold ilitir pupils lint with
as much experience in anotliei direc-
tion 1 believe that the larger pari of
the pupils leave because, lirst , the last
word they hear when they leave home
is, "hurry home after Sunday school;"
then in the seci nd place, the children,
pleased with the hour spent in the
school, as soon as they can do so, hur-
ry home to show their cards and to
share the pleasure they I.ad, with tin ir
parents If these children could me, t
their parents at the church they would
gludly remain with them. No doubt
the church service* are less iolerestng
to the children iban to the older peo-
ple, but if they were taught to stay
every effort would be madi to interest
tlieni. With the drawin power and
example of their parents in Hie church
there would be few vacant seats in all
the eight church houses in Childress.
We are making some worthy im-
provements through the Civic club and
the splendid new Commercial dub. We
need some improvements in the matter
of church attendance, and I therefore,
raise tliH slogan: ''Three Thousand
People in Our Churches on Sunday!"
I'a-;s it along.

No Man is Useless While He
Can Render Service to Another
Iu the state of pure savagery no man depend-
ed upon others.
Today there is scarcely one man in ten millions who does nor
depend definitely upon the service of others for part of his suste-
nance. In return it is necessary for him to repay in kin.d.
The art of 'serving others has become the science of existence.
Sometimes this service is direct and personal. In other cases a
man renders It by becoming part of a vast industrial machine, but
always it is ennobling.
it is only when a man attempts to reap where lie has not sown
that be becomes a parasite - and to be a parasite is to be a criminal,
whether the unearned has come through Inheritance or burglary.
'Ik* have the right to eat you must earn your food, and this
means service given in exchange to those who serve you.
To earn bread by the sweat of the brow Is not only necessary; it
is magnificent. It is the badge of civilization for men and nations
are progressive only in proportion as they labor.
There is no surer death sentence to civilization and commer-
cial enterprise than a warm climate where men may live without ef-
fort; aiwl to revert quickly to the baboon and the ring-tail If Is nec-
essary only to remain Idle.
The Robin Hoods and Jesse Jameses of hls'ory were different
from the idle rich of today only in the fact that their methods were
romantic. The idea is the same, it is to get something without giv
ing anything in return
Service means progress, and the men who grow are the ones who
make themselves useful Judged from the cashier's standpoint,
some of these are overpaid and some are ill-rewarded, but, measur-
ed by a standard that is more Important their reward is automatic-
The man who wants more than lie earns is a hog. The one who
wants something without earning it is at heart a thief and both
are fundamentally heathen and contemptible.
The only noble ideal of life is the Ideal of service.
