Aug. 1 The iday of excuses and apologies from the Southwestern Bell Telephone (Company for poor service in Okla- homa ended last night with the res- toration of private ownership and state control of the transmission lines, it was declared yesterday by Art L. Walker, chairman of the cor- poration commission. From now on the state, through the corporation commission, will as- sert its rights, and hold the com- pany to "strict accountability" for j t-he'class of service it renders to Us patrons in Oklahoma, Walker said. Telephone officials were in con- ference yesterday with Chairman Walker, aud promised Improvement, 1'but declared the change for the bet- tor must necessarily come slowly, due to the training of new opera- tors.

Twice in my life I have had brought home to me very vivid realization of the aptness and force of Isaiah's figurative laguage in the text. One of the most striking pictures I saw in the British Art gallery was that of a raging tempest sweeping trees, houses and barns before it. In one corner was a party of frightened people observing the approaching storm, and in another a group awe-struck horses, with heads erect and distended nostrils, bodies ap1 parently all aquiver as they intently watched the coming storm and heard its roar. In my tour of Egypt I sood on. tne great pyramid of Cheops and looked across a desert as far as the eye could see, and that is a long way in that clear, dry atmosphere. In the opposite direction I could see across the valley of the Nile, which stream courses its way along the center of the strip of valley ren- :dered fertile and fruitful by its wa- ters, and beyond this I could see the desert on the other side. On camel's hack I rode through that desert as far as the Tombs of the Kings, a parching hot, windy journey, over a desolate and weary land, 'just before we reached the Tombs, scorching hot and thirsty, we rounded a sand-hill and came suddenly into the shadow of a huge rock lowering up out of the sands many hundreds of feet above us. lit was like entering a cave. The lair was delightfully cool and re- freshing making us feel like new creatures. i Instantly the words of this text came into my mind, and I said that the old prophet certainly knew what he was talking about when he spoke of the shadow of a great rock in a weary land as a grateful refuge for the way-worn traveler. And what that great rock was to me on that day Jesus Christ has been to me every day since. Refuge a Universal Need. Every man needs a refuge, though many do not recognize it till the on- coming storm is hard upon them. Because they do not feel the need provide fuel unt-il the winter blasts begin lo howl. They are not so wise as the bee and the ant. The" devil makes it his chief business to see that men do not feel alarm un- til destruction is so near alarm wilt do no good.

Storms of sorrow drive some to de- spair and even to self-destruction, because they have noc availed them- selves of the refuge God has' pro- vided for all. Storms of misfortune are ever rendering them helpless unless they have .refuge in this "covert from the tempest." Dry and fruitless are the lives of those who have never drunk of the "rivers of living water, sup- plied by Jesus Christ, the Savior.
