But the news-behind-the overfed cow may be jUSt as hard news would have been the real on the owner's pocketbook. miracle. It would have meant the absolute changing of a man's mind. What would have to happen to the rich man's mind would be far more of a wonder than what happened to his propexty--mad more impor- tant too. Leave All But those are all only if's, Might- have-been's or Would-have-beens. The fact is, the rich man did not change his mind, he held on to what he had. He wasn't happy about it at all; "he went away in great distress" as one modern translation puts iL And Jesus, who watched him go, must have felt an even deeper regret, for Jesus loved the man. It is not easy to see some one you love choose the road to darkness rather than light. The young man--for he was young and influentiai as well as rich--had asked Jesus what he ought to do to "inherit eternal life." That was his way of asking the question that comes in many forms: How shall I get right with God? How shall I~be saved? How can I find life's meaning and live by it ? Where is the road to Light ? How call I fulfill my highest des. tmy The young man's friends might have thought that question need- less; for he was an extraordinarily good young man. He told Jesus, and Jesus did not doubt him, that he had been keeping the Ten Com- mandments ever since he could re- member. But Jesus said, "You lack one thing." Only one--but what a terrific one thing! Get rid of all you own, Jesus said, give it to the poor; then come follow me. W. L. (Bill) Northern, E~ten- siGn dairyman at West Virginia universi,ty, said that cows should am 6read s all never petites. He stressed tha this is the first step in any profitable dairy program. As the Extension specialist ex- plained i~t, one cow's feeding needs may vary considerabley from an- other's. If 0he dairyman feeds all his cows alike, he's apt to either overfeed or underfeed some of them. How can you determine the cor root amount of feed for dairy cows The only really accurate way is to consult dairy records-information ~bot~t the three record-keeping sy. stems-Standard DHIA, Owner- Sampler, and Weigh-a:Day-a- Mon,th-is available to farmers through their county agricultural agents. An Alabama county offers con- vincing evidence of ,the value of record keeping, Northern cited. Weigh-a-Day-a-Month records on Grade A and ,manufacturing milk herds ~howed that practically ev- ery dairyman in Limes~ne county was given his cows too much feed for the amount of milk he was get Sing in return. In fact, ,the records showed that some dairymen were THE CHURCH FOR ALL .. ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. h is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church. neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: fl) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of lhe Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily.

He made a mistake that is made to this very day by people who shy away from being Christians. There is a Christian now an old man, who for more than the firSt sixty years of his life refused to be a Chris- tian. He resisted all that members of his family could say to him. His reason was at least an honest one. He knew that the way he made his money--or to be more precise, he knew that the way he tried to make money--namely by gambling, was not a Christian way of living. He was not going to pretend to be a Christian and a gambler too. His trouble Was that in his mind being a Christian was chiefly not doing something he very much enjoyed doing, at the racetrack or over the green tables in a club room. As long as you think of the Christian life as a giving-up, a cutting-out of some habit or possession that you cherish, you never do get .the right slant. The heart of the Chris- ttan life, what makes it worth whge, is in that "Follow meJ' Major Operation Would Jesus say to every one, "Sell all you have and give to the poor" ? Is it out of the question for a man or woman with money to "haherit eternal life"? Is money something evil in itself ? This could hardly be true, otherwise Jesus would not have said to give it to the poor, but to throw it in the lake. Jesus counted among his friends many persons with prop- erty, and this was the only man he ever advised to get rid of every bit of it. It is very likely that money was a kind of baby tiger for this young man---harmless enough at first but destined to turn into a roaring killer. Two men may have the ~ame disease; a major operation may be the only eure for one of them. The main point is: Get rid of whatever keeps you from going all the way with Christ. H. W. WAGELEY, INC.
