Article keys to said a Rich Man and his Steward Jesus the master teacher told a parable to illustrate this. A certain Rich Man employed a Steward. It was this Steward s business to look after the land and the tenants to. Collect crop rents rent vacant farms Etc. Each year he rendered to the Rich Man the proceeds of the estate after deducting his own salary. But this Steward was accused of mishandling and misappropriating these funds and the Rich Man called the Steward quot fun the carpet quot saying Render me account of thy the investigation most certainly would show How the funds had been handled and would show the Steward s character. God is like the quot Rich Man of the. Parable. We Are All his stewards who must some Day Render account to him of the Money that has passed through our hands. I suppose most of us admit in theory that quot the Earth is the lords quot but Are like Louis i of France who Dona, the Virgin Mary the whole country of Boulogne but reserved the Revenue therefrom for himself. But our Money is not our own. We can use it Only while we Are Here quot in when we Are dismissed from this life we must leave everything behind. The shroud has no pockets spending sometimes this fact makes people treat Money As unimportant and they spend it recklessly. They taunt the Man who saves quot what s the use of saving your Money. You can t take it with you when you die. Spend it put it in circulation quot the print Isle sounds right but it can be misapplied. Your character is revealed by the Way you spend your Money. The spending of Money holds character. Either Good or bad character in formed by spending. To spend Money for human advancement is the greatest object imaginable. Human advancement stands for Many things education Jie Alth morality. Many undesirable things May however be catalogued under these terms. We spen a Money for poor literature for trash and charge the Bill to education. Quot sle indulge in harmful amused no it support cheap and even obscene shows play the races Tiet on Bair games buy quack medicines Purchase Gaudy clothes and jewelry stuff ourselves with sweets undergo an operation for appendicitis and classify the whole cemetery shall be kept by the Secretary but in the event that he leaves his office for any time he shall leave said keys with the town clerk. Article by Law in conflict with these by Laws Are hereby repealed. L. F. Gregory e. E. High v committee. Fred Holtz after the Reading of the articles or. Rossiter made a motion to have each article read separately and then adopted. This motion ter some debate was withdrawn. Then on motion of. Or. Holtz the rules were ordered printed in the review Republican and the Pione Fer so that All lot owners might be Able to read them a and set monday night june 27 the for the next meeting for the lot owners to either adopted them As a whole or reject them. A each lot owner is therefore urged to read the above articles very carefully and attend the meeting at the Library building monday evening june 27th, at 7 30 o clock to. Adopt the articles or reject them. Do not forget this Date. Be there. Expense Bill under the commendable title of health and recreation. I in while we Are recovering we fling a curse at High taxes. But accuse any one of reckless spending and you get the retort quot none of your t us Ness yet such recklessness has sent prices sky High and finally caused business collapse without mentioning other harmful effects upon society in general whose business is that giving but a big hearted character is indicated More by How a Man gives than by How he spends his Money. Joaquin Miller the pet reminds us significantly that quot All you can hold in your cold dead hand is what you have Given away quot much passes for giving which in the True sense is not giving at All often we dispose of Money but we expect to draw returns from it by Many invisible strings. To spend is to receive an equivalent for our Money. To give is to dispose of Money or possessions without any thought of compensation. To make a real sacrifice for a deserving cause is real giving. It is the acid test of a Man s character. And if a Man can do that cheerfully repeatedly without having the Corners of his Mouth turn Down he will find the greatest Joy and he is not far from the kingdom of heaven. The Way a Man regards his Money the Way he spends it and the Way he gives it away not Only shows his character but also holds it. A Man is constantly rendering an account of his character by the Way he yields to Money s influence. After All does a Man s life consist in the abundance of the things which he possesses Green i ii tigers. Beat Independence nearly everybody except the president has nominated or. Taft to be chief Justice. Why is it that every time a Man is in a hurry there s a Dull Blade in his safety razor last Friday s Attica daily Tribune says quot to. R.
