BURTON 8 DANF0RTH
BY A. D. POWERS
One Perfect IVIan.
There was one perfect man
capable of guiding and teaching
all men how to live in order to
secure the greatest happiness in
this world and the world to come.
If you will recall the history of
His life, as told by the apostles,
He went about doing good, and
when His work was finished, there
remained on earth the blind man
He had made to see, the lame He
bad caused to walk, the lepers He
had cleansed, the living He had
raised from the dead, and the
scarlet woman He had forgiven.
He forgave the thief upon the
cross and made him happy in the
hour of dispair and dissolution.
His commandment was “Love thy
neighbor as thyself.” In His great
heart, full of compassion and pity
for all humanity, there was no
bitterness or hate. He knew the
limitations of the average human
mind and the shortcomings of
mo.rtal man. He did not abuse,
villify or denounce; one time only
did He seriously rebuke and that
was when the money changers de-
filed the temple of God, and He
drove them from it. He left no
code of rules and regulations writ-
ten by Himself governing indivi-
dual conduct, nor did He outline
governmental policies, because
He, being allwise, knew the mani-
fold disposition of man, and the
changing of conditions in national
governments due to modern dis-
coveries and new inventions. He
meddled not with politics, nor did
He debate with others of different
creeds, but He emphasized chari-
ty, loved little children, and was a
friend to the lonely and the out-
cast, that class of desolate human-
ity, upon the fringe of society,
clinging to life by a thread of
hope, longing for tenderness, love
and sympathy. The hungry, the
weary, the sick and the sin-stained
loved Him, for He was not
ashamed to be seen among them,
calling them brothers, and point-
ing them to the resurrection of life.
Value of Pulling Together.
With a heavy load all the hor-
ses hitched to the vehicle must
pull together or the load will
never be moved. It is the same
way with the developement of the
country, the building of cities and
towns, or the success of any locol
enterprise. On this subject the
Dallas News remarks:
Any baseball manager will tell
you that team work is essential to
pennant winning, and he will tell
you also that good team work is
the hardest thing to get, even out
of the stars of the game.
Team work is no less essential
to the steady and orderly devel-
opement of ai town, and it is lack
of team work that most common-
ly retards a town’s developement.
Team work is the result of
practice. Its habit, formed by a
repetition of the same effort. Any
small task will do for the first
practice. A movement may be
organized to plant a tree. That
ought not to arouse dissension,
but it will facilitate unity some-
what in a subsequent effort to es-
tablish a park, and by pulling off
these projects a town will eventu-
ally develop a degree of team
work that will enable it to build a
railroad. There is not as much
difference in enterprise between
the first and the last towns as there
is in their capacities for work, in
Not for Her!
“With one wave of my wand,” says
the fairy, “I can make you grow young
“Excuse me,” replied the woman, “if
I decline your kind offer. If you can
bring youth to me at my present age,
all right; but I positively refuse to
travel through pyrography, the first
stages of bridge, the habit back, the
straight front, balloon sleeves and
all the rest of the fads I can remem-
“Are you permanently settled now?”
asked the farmer of a friend who had
made many moves.
“I don’t know,” said the westerner;
“you know I’m living in the cyclone
The Billionaire’s Resolution.
“If to be rich is a disgrace,”
He murmured with a frown,
"I’ll stick to my financial pace
And try to live it down!”
“Grandma,” inquired her little grand-
son, the day of her arrival, “did you
sleep on your face last night?”
“Of course not, dear; why do you

“Funny things, this—a big mirror In
your meat market.”
“Oh, I don’t know. Some of my cus-
tomers haven’t had time to notice the
scales since I hung up the mirror.”—
So It Seems.
Lecturer—To-day the men are living
much faster than the women.
Man (in audience)—That’s right.
Twenty years ago, when I got married,
my wife was five years the older; now
she’s five years the younger.
Dr. Stingem—Good morning! How
