August vows planned
fir. and Mrs. Wayns McGrady of Sulphur Springs announce the
i-coming wedding of their daughter Amy to Thomas Richard
Ifhitlow of Marshall. Whitlow is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Winston
£>fifhitlow of Marshall. The wedding mass will be celebrated in St. -
James Catholic Church on Aug. U at S p.m. Friends and relatives
the couple are invited to attend.

Mr. and Mrs. J.P. Fletcher,
A lot of‘ women sitting out there today con-
templating marriage are saying to themselves,

Dancing in marriage is important. It’s one of the
few things you do together in public that makes you
remember why you got married. -
A few naive little fools say^‘J’11 get him to dance
after we’re married.” Oh, sure. And you’re going to
grow hair on his bald spot and put a volume button on
nis snoring. My husband’s feet have been under the
table so long, they wilt when light hits them.
We were out the other night when the orchestra
began to play and three other couples at the table got
up to dance. He looked over at me. ‘‘You don’t have to
look like you just became eligible for the orphan’s
picnic. What possible kick can you get out there on a
crowded floor dancing backwards? I tell you dancing
is a fad. In another ten years it’ll be out! ”
“You said that about sirloin and electricity.”
“Look at them” he said. “Do you think they’re
having a good time? That fella is shoving that woman
back and forth like he’s moving a piano.”
“It wouldn’t hurt you to dance one dance with me.”
He got out his watch, looked at it, and then said,
“Okay, just one.”
Do not be misled. He had no intention of dancing. He
was setting me up for the old modem-equation-for-
non-dancers trick. This is the way it works. First, he
calculates the distance from the table to the dance
floor. This is divided by how many seconds are left for
the song to be finished. If the first number is larger
than the second, he can fill in by helping you out of
your chair, buttoning his coat, stopping by a table to
say hello to someone he thought he knew, or getting
lost on the way to the floor.
Whatever, he made it to the dance floor just in time
to strike a pose and hear the music stop. When the

Scripture Reading forToday: Genesis 3:1-13
DON’T BE DECEIVED!
... ye shill be is God, knowing good ind evil.
NE of Satan’s most effective tactics down through
the ages has been deception He is a master at mak-
ing things appear what they are not A mixture of
truth and error seems to serve his purposes much better
than total error.
Donald Grey Barnhousc illustrated this forcefully with
the following story: "Duveen, the famous English art con-'
noisseur, took his little daughter to the beach one day, but
could not get her to go into the chilly water. After per-
suasion failed, he borrowed a teakettle, built a fire, and
heated a little water until it steamed beautifully. With
much flourish, he poured it into the ocean. Greatly im-
pressed. his daughter went in without a murmur." Barn-
house then made this application: Satan dilutes an ocean
of unbelief with a steaming teakettle of Christian ethics,
and people go wading in, self-satisfied, but unaware that
they arc bathing in unbelief.”
The adversary is delighted when a person turns over a
new leaf or engages in good works, just as long as he
continues to reject the provision of God's grace in sal-
vation, Somehow the sinner completely ignores the fatal
error of not trusting Christ because his life has boon tem-
pered with a teakettle of wholesome resolves.
Our Lord's words arc very clear: ”,.. he that believeth
not is condemned already, because he hath not believed
in the name of the only begotten Son of God" (John 3:18).
Don't be deceived by Satan’s clever ploy. You cannot di-
lute an ocean of cold unbelief with a littlewarm water of
religiosity or good human endeavor. —P.R.V.
The devil in hi* subtle way
Will rhlorotorm your soul,
li you don't quickly turn to Christ.
Whose blood can mike you whole. —lyle
THOT: Satin will flood you with truth to float one lie.
