Ocala was much honored and edi edified
fied edified yesterday by the presence of
B ishop Henry C. Morrison and his
excellent discourse on "Behold the
fowls of the air," and "Consider the
lilies of the field," Matt. 6:26-28. He
said: "Christian life has an active and
passive side." We are much concern concerned
ed concerned over the bread and meat question,
especially at this time, but should not
be so to excess. Life depends on right
activity. Religion is not theory, but
life; -when spiritual respiration
ceases, life ceases. Lifeless churches
produce envy, malice and all evil
things resulting in death. God teaches
us through birds, who never dese desecrate
crate desecrate night hours, in revelry, but go
to sleep early, waking early with
song, awakening others and gather-;
ing food which God has prepared.
Early hours are best hours, to be used
systematically Birds are full of rapid rapidity
ity rapidity they, do their best, then trust
God for the rest. How often this les lesson,
son, lesson, in fact much of the Bible, is
misread! Birds go for their morning
meal instead of waiting for, it. We
complain of the churches being cold
and sermons dry. We must come
down from our perch, save others and
do God's work. Help others and get a
reflex blessing. How many in church
doing nothing when the Master said,
"Go yet unto the t harvest." Exercise
is necessary to spiritual life; the
bird sings under all conditions; not so
man. Cheerfulness is a force; the
gloomy man doesn't succeed; failure
doesn't sing; cheerful men are loco locomotives
motives locomotives pulling upward. David cried,
"Restore unto me thy salvation."
Those who live in the inner circle get
close to God. His children washed by
His blood and cared for as He careth
for the sparrow. Can't we trust him
as do the fowls of the air? Bird life
and lily life are from Godbird life
active, lily life passive. "Consider the
lilies" abiding motionless during life
from earth through roots and the air
above through leaves, our lives unite
with the elements. Consider the de developments,
velopments, developments, beauty and real charac character
ter character which come from the passive side,
of the lily, which is in God's hands,
just as our children are moulded in
oud hands when we nurture them ac according
cording according to His word. There is effic efficiency
iency efficiency back of all beauty. Lilies of
the field despite all exposure bloom
according to His will. We forge this
because of prosperity until reserves
come and we fall back, helpless on the
bosom of Jesus Christ. We are in
world conflict because of our sins.
God can not save the world by earth earthquakes
quakes earthquakes and disasters, only when we
are convicted and humble ourselves
does He by His mercy forgive. As
He 'grew, ministering and serving, so
must we follow His footsteps, even
though they4 lead to the cross. God

With well simulated surprise, Gerry
Thompson proceeded down the car

The few occasions upon which he had
been privileged to en joy that young
woman's companionship, had not satis satisfied

his was an unmistakable case of love
at first sight.
The moment the girl raised her eyes

words of introduction, Gerry's heart
had leaped from Its normal position, as
It seemed to have acquired a habit of
leaping ever since at eight of her.

last seat down, and raised his hat in
apparently surprised delight
"So glad to see you," Jhe said, point pointing

bright assent. y
"The time will pass more quickly
with a companion," she said.
' To such a propitious beginning Gerry
bent his best endeavor. How could he
please her, win her admiring favor ?
Her nearness was most distracting.
Surely he had not realized before her
loveliness. Sidewlse the girl looked at
"Aren't you going to talk?" she
Gerry cleared his throat. He must
be very careful In broaching a subject
of conversation. "Gloria is so well in informed,"

"don'ti make the mistake of starting
any topic you're not sure of. What
was he sure of? Gerry did not know.
In embarrassed despair he drew the
morning paper from his pocket shaking
out its folds. ;
"Bolshevikl," he began, reading from
the printed headlines. v
"Oh I please, the girl protested, Tm
so heartsick of war. Just here, flying
along through these glistening snowy

Hurriedly Gerry turned the page. He
had blundered af first effort Over in
this section of woman stuff he might
find surer ground. Gloria leaned closer
to smile with him at an absurd pic pictured
tured pictured fashion. He felt encouraged to
read feelingly a sentimental poem, but
the girl laughed.
"Doesn't seem to fit In with my mood
today, she told him. Then her eyes
took on a glint of Interest "What a

Gerry read the title disgustedly.

Gerry shrugged his shoulders "To

"but can you fancy a person like that

"Why not?" questioned Miss Gloria,
"Romance is all very well In Its

Gazing from the car window the girl
considered. "The poor writer may be

mused, "not as aggressive perhaps as
some conceited young business men.

Miss Gloria held out her hand with
a frigid little smile.
"Good afternoon, Mr. Thompson,
she bowed in dismissal. Gerry strode
along moodily. He had Intended to In

was all ended. That "knock" of hers
about a "conceited young business

"Won't bother me at all," the girl
assured him, "I'm going to read the

rotten stuff, you know."
Gerry leaned suddenly forward.
"Why," he asked severely, "were you
so cut up over what I said about that
fool writer1 anything to do with that
fellow who has just gone?"
Miss Gloria looked straight into his
eyes : "No," she replied, "I am tjie

For a long moment they sat gazing
at each other.
Gerry murmured helplessly : "Can
you ever forgive my senseless prattle?
Some time will you let me try to teach
you to care as I care, Gloria?"
From beneath her lashes the girl's
eyes twinkled up at him.
"It may be possible," she said
thoughtfully, "that all young business
men are not aggressively conceited.
Anyway, I'm willing to learn." And the
appealing little hand upon the car seat
was clasped in Gerry's strong one.
A DOLLAR W ASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. ; Gne man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, wa3te in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything net essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, reeded by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. Ani, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by. loaning your men-
