But the Way of the righteous is As a dawning Light that Shin eth More and More unto the perfect Day. Introduction there has Ever been discord As to what is right and what is wrong in life. To some one thing see meth Light and to another another Way and Good people often part company on what is right. A Long time ago when Jesus said he had come to Bear witness to the truth Pilate asked Jesus a what is truth a this is no Small question even though it May have been asked in jest by Pilate. Conscience we have discovered is no certain guide to we hat is right. We often see conscience leading men to do the most grievous sins. It caused the Indian of a few years ago to offer his child to the Crocodile of the Ganges River. In history it led Christian people to Burn heretics at stake because of their discord Writh prevailing opinion. In our own present Day it is causing some Christian people to attempt the crucifixion of others because of different View Points of interpretation of the word of god. Even attempting the destruction of men like Robt. Speer and Stanley Jones. There is no Clear path among men As to what is right in the moral realm. Many gather to hear Peterson stalk on labor feed pheasants consume tested by University show seed Corn to be a very Squill percentage of their daily diet outlined present status labourers throughout this country of speaking before a Good sized crowd at the court House Square l. D. Peterson Minneapolis labor Leader said a there Are a number of things i wish to Cail to your attention that the Labouring Man faces. A we have had a struggle against special privilege since the beginning of Man. Never has that struggle been More precarious than at the present time. A during Feudal times certain men extracted toil from their fellow men for their own personal gain. In the beginning it was slavery. Today it has taken a different form. Men today have a Small equity in what they do but a very Small equity. A years ago men started to band themselves together to better their conditions. A it is True that we have More around us a said Peterson explaining that we Fiad finer things and could enjoy a Fuller life. A it is worse in this respect. In Feudal times men had very Little difficulty in procuring the necessities of life. Today this is not the Case. A a number of years ago a number of our people were bonded in slavery but the worst of the slave Drivers fed their slaves. Today we have an abundance of things around us but Many Are unable to procure the necessities of Peterson told his listeners that the an investigation of the food habits of pheasants carried on within the last few Days by the University farm in cooperation with the game and fish division in response to numerous com plaints by Farmers about pheasant damage in Fields of newly planted Corn has shown that in general these com plaints Are not wholly justified and that much damage by insects and gophers has been wrongly attributed to pheasants. Over 50 pheasants killed in the Region from which most complaints have come were submitted to or. Ralph t. King instructor economic zoology at the University farm for an examination of the crop contents and an analysis of the food taken according to or. Kings report shows that while pheasants have eaten some Corn they have not done nearly the amount of damage for which they have been blamed. Examination of the crop contents of the first 54 Birds revealed Only 62 kernels of whole com and three sprouted kernels which May or May not have been seed Corn while they contained 86 kernels of mutilated Corn we hich had already been destroyed by ground squirrels or gophers which eat the germ of the Kernel leaving the remainder.
