Nobody is more active than a child. Unless he is asleep he is on the move. And his mind is on the move, questioning, remembering, dreaming, studying.

If some young men and women are better than others, ten to one it is owing to the company they had from their parents and playmates. The new building which Berea College dedicates next week is for the benefit of little children to train teachers to take better care of the young pupils in all the public schools. And the school exhibitions that are coming on so thick in this month of December, the Christmas trees, and the household gatherings are mainly for them. God bless the children. Cold Weather A little cold weather seems necessary to make the best kind of men and women. In the land where it never snows, people grow too lazy. Cold weather once a year is God's lesson jn God says "Make hay while the sun shines; plant crops in the spring time; build houses when it doesn't storm; gather in the pleasant weather. And then when winter comes, you will not shiver but glow. You shall sit by your snug fireside with your loved ones around you warm and cheery; you shall read and sing and rest and plan for the next season." Thank God for the winter time. fire-wood co n Dedication of Knapp Hall The beautiful training school building which is ncaring completion ' is to be dedicated next Tuesday; - " This is tho most perfect building of Its kind in tho South, and Is attracting wide attention.

As suggested above, cowpeas in Tho whlto sands are in an Irregular body, 10 by 90 miles In extent They aro composed of gypsum, and aro In perfect granules. When moist tho sands aro yellowish, but when dry aro pure white. They are firm and unyielding, like a wet beach on the seashore, and one can walk across them almost without leaving footprints. Taken In tho hand, tho grains of sand aro dull, but when viewed from a distance thoy sparkle with an uncanny brightness. If one walks a llttlo way across the white sands. In the middle of one of the hot, sunshiny days common In Now Mexico, the glare proves almost blinding, while tho heat radiated from this sea of sand 1b terrific. A peculiarity about the sand Is Its perfect solubility. Taken In the hands, grains of tho white sand can be rubbed Into powder with little effort. Oldtlmcrs in New Mexico, who have known of the white sands for many years, assert that the white sands are constantly moving. The Indians tell all kinds of uncanny stories concerning the white sands, which are supposed to bo "bad medicine," and the red men are careful to keep away from tho place. It la estimated by careful Tho late king of Slam had an extraordinary hobby that of collecting empty match boxes of all nations. In this connection an Interesting story Is related. During one of hU visits to England tho king, while passing down Uond street one afternoon, accompanied by two members of his suite, espied an empty match box, which had Been discarded by Its owner and thrown away Into the middle of the thoroughfare. Without a moment's thought the much-coveted monarch dashed Into tho middle of the crowded traffic, grasped the treasure, and was nearly run over by a passing cab. The fact, however, that he was able to add a new specimen to his collection gathered In such circumstances more than compensated him for tho risk which he had run.

The story of Achan Is an illustra tion. While his sin was individualistic yet it was national In its results (v. 1.) After the fall of Jericho, Joshua sent a detachment of 2,000 or 3,000 men to take possession of tho small town of Al (literally, "ruins"). The task was seemingly an unimportant and an easy one, but the result was that the expe dition was turned Into a miserable rout (vr. Achan' Sins Revealed.

The prisoner was sentenced to seven day In bed. and was connuctea nome ny a policeman who stood by while be undressed him self, and then tucked him up snugly between the sheet light are constantly making this samo mistake of accusing God, Instead of finding out and Judging our sin. Thero Is, however, an underlying note ot the master paBslon ot Joshua's heart, that note which had bo governed the heart of his predecessor, Moseg. It is expressed in tho last noto of his complaint,' "What wilt thou do for thy great name?" v. 9. This complaint and petition sounds very much like those of tho preceding generation uttered In the wilderness. For us to wish ourselves to bo "content to dwell beyond Jordon," when the testing times of our Christian life come, when tho calls como for an advance, is to doubt his wisdom. No wonder Joshua was amazed when he saw Israel turn its back upon its enemies (v. 8). We must bewaro lest wo, too, be dismayed when we see the church of today give-wabefore the world and the devil. II. The cause of defeat, vv. Joshua's petition Is answered by the voicn of Jehovah in terms ot rebuke, strong, yet tender. In verso two wo aro told that Joshua sent men to view Al. Why? Decauso In the language or verso one "tho children of Israel committed a trespass In tho accursed thing." Joshua wanted the people to know that the sin of Achan and Its results was the sin ot the whole nation. God brings the essential oneness ot the nation before us in verso eleven; for an illustration, see I. Cor. 16. 5:1-and 12:12-14- . God' Instruction. . III. The victory of defeat, w It Is a testimony as to the spiritual condition ot this nation that the fraud was so soon located. The early Christian church had a parallel Incident In tho case of Ananias and Sapphire, Acta 5:1-1In each caso the evil was. quickly Judged and reveals the closeness ot God to his people. In the process of years Israel passed from that condition; has tho church ot today God bad given explicit as to the spoil (ch. 6:18 IU V.). God commands Joshua not to cry unto him, but to "sanctify the people." Tho church of Christ, as well as the Individual, needs to judge Its slu and to set itself apart unto God. It was a stern Judgment and tho query arises what sort of bonfire? would tbo church have today wero all sinfully acquired property to suffer similar destruction. It Is noticeable, however, that thero Is no suggestion, of any confession on the part of Achaa until the narrowing circle of judgement had closed upon him. Ha confessed only when there was no possible escape. This seems llko a stern, hard process, but yet God was dealing in mercy with the whole people. IV. The Golden Text Tbo words oC this text were uttered by Moses to the, two and a half tribes who settled on. the east ot Jordan, that In caso they refused to come to the help of their brethren in the conBlct necessary to the possession ot Canaan, their sin would discover them. This lesson warrants the application of this principle. A sin against God results In Injury to your neighbor. It a sin not to help your neighbor and conversely to Indulge In any act which results ra, the defeat, moral or otherwise, of tboe with wbosa we associate la also a sin. y 10-17 1 i Pace Four.

' During the decade ending in 1897 it was discovered that 21,398 crimes i were committed in Denmark, 17,374 ' or 71.2 per cent of them being due to alcohol. During the year ending in August, 1905, 20,072 crimes were committed and recorded in the state of Massa chusetts. Upon investigation it was discovered that 17,575 of theso crimes were drunkenness only, and that 057 others were committed while tho men implicated were drinking. In tho last number thero were other crimes besides mcro drunkenness. 8,4(0 of the men were sentenced for other crimes than drunkenness, hut it was noticed that 13 per cent of these committed their crimes in a greater or less degreo of intoxication. In an investigation by one physi-- J cian it was learned that of 200 men convicted of murder, 158 wore addicted to tho use of alcohol, and CO per cent of theso 200 murders wero due to tho inllucnco of alcohol only. In another investigation by the same physioian that included 500 crimes of a less serious character, il was ' discovered that 82 per cent wero attributed directly to tho effects of alcohol. ' Tho Pennsylvania Sabbath School Association publishes a chart on which sumo interesting data is found. It is a study of crimo in llvo Massachusetts towns Brockton, Taunton, Chelsea. Salem, Fitchburg. Tlio study is made of each town for two consecutive years during one of which a license law was in effect allowing tho sale of liquors, during tho other there was no licenso law In force. It is interesting to nolo that tho number of arrests made in theso towns during tho years when ( These llgures speak for themselves. No arguments whatever are needed to convince the man with an open mind that the presence of Intoxicating liquors means many crimes and the absence of drinks means fewer crimes. A few years ago there wero about 1100 inmates In tho slate penitentiary at Frankfort, Ky. Something like 90 per cent of these inmates wero in prison for crimes commuted while the criminals wero under tho influence of alcohol, or for crimes that would not have been committed if thoso committing them could not at any previous time have had access to alcohol. It seems only reasonable that tho state could well afford to do away with the source of so many crimes rather than perpetuate the cause by law and then tax tho people to take care of the criminals that the liquor business produces. But there is an inclination in many government, quarters to make a business pay for itself and a little extra besides. The liquor business pays a heavy revenue in dollars and cents, but it docs not pay one particle of revenue in terms of manhood, womanhood, purity, love of home and fireside, maidenly virtue, and other things that make life most, worth while. It destroys everyone of theso precious things but it pays a revenue in dollars! It is a splendid and useful beast of burden upon which to strap some of the burdens of taxation. It is a great and prosperous business. It helps to pay the salaries of thousands of government inspectors, gaugers, revenue officers, district judges, etc., almost none of whom would be needed if the business itself did not exist. Besides this it helps to pay the salaries of state officials and officers of the national government; it drops a handsome amount into the appropriation for building warships, constructing locks and dams in rivers that will not be used for navigation for tho next million years; it helps to pay other necessary expenses of the government and furnishes about all the money needed to prosecute and lake care. of. the criminals it is directly responsible for. You see it is a tremendously important factor in supplying the government with necessary revenue. But you must at the same time remember that the liquor business destroys the very things that money cannot buy. It destroys over 150,-0human lives in the United States every year; money connot buy back one of those lives. And those lives are precious to somebody. The happiness of tens of thousands of homes is destroyed every year, but money cannot buy back that happiness. The manhood and self respect is stolen away from tens of thousands of young men each year and no amount of money can buy 11 smirches back cither of these. the good name and destroys U13 maiden virtue of thousands of girls annually anil money cannot buy back the virtue of one of them. You can't go to a market and purchase manhood, or happiness, or self respect, or purity, or innocence with dollars. You might as well try to send a scout to heaven by parcel post or by Adams Express Company. The liquor business is the criminal that strikes at the heart of all that is purest and best in the individual or the community; it destroys the most precious tilings known to man things that no amount of money can ever buy back, again. But ft pays a big revenue in dollars and cents to tho nation, hence it lives. Whatever may bo your attitudo toward the business you must remember that it is a constant source of crime, that it takes a good citizen and makes a criminal out of him, that its influence in the life of an individual or a community is always degrading and never elevating. I shall now discuss the relation of alcohol to disease. Before entering this discussion it will he important for you to understand something about how Ihe body fights disease. For thousands of years tho causes of the most familiar diseases wero unknown. People becamo sick and 'died anil no one knew why. Nothing could lto seen in tho blood or elsewhere in tho body to account for deadly maladies so people many ages ago decided that tho gods sent sickness and death among peoplo as n punishment for sin. People believed this for centuries and centuries and many still think that when a friend dies il pleases the l.o nl to tako this friend away.

The nineteenth and twentieth centuries have seen greater progress made in discovering the origin and means of prevention of diseaso than all the other centuries that havo passed since the world began. Tho microscope and the test tube havo driven the demons and the amulets, the wizard's wand and the medicine man's incantations into oblivion forever. We know what cause most of the common diseases. We know that such diseases as pneumonic plague, lagrippe, smallpox, meningitis, dysentery and many others are caused by germs or seeds that get into the human body, grow rapidly and produce a poison that weakens the body and in many instances destroys life. The germs or seeds arc enemies of human health. They arc loo small to be seen without the microscope but they may easily be seen with it. The person who never gels the.ie tiny seeds into his body will never have any of the germ diseases. Many people who are honest and aro in a measure enlightened do not bcliwo that diseases come from tiny seeds, but their unbelief does not disprove what all enlightened people know to be WORLD NEWS.

These are the soldiers of defence and thoy aro always on patrol duty, going lilo policemen into every part of lh body to discover any enemy that may have entered. If a typhoid seed, or tuberculosis seed, or seed of any other deadly disease is found in the body, it is at once pounced upon by Ihe white corpuscles. A conflict to tho very death follows. If the corpuscles are numerous enough find healthy enough they will overpower tho disease seed and destroy it; if they am not numerous and strong enough to win out in the battle the seed will find lodging in some suitable place, will multiply and create a poison that soon produces a fever and brings about a sickness that may result in death to tho individual. So you see, the arbiter of life and death is the little white corpuscle that never sleeps on duty but watches like a soldier for an enemy that may enter thru thfs mouth, the nose, the skin or by some other way, to harm tho body. You probably wonder what this has to do with the relation of alcohol to health and disease. It has just this: If a foreign army should invade tho United States thero is .m army here ready to battle with them and drivo tho enemies out. As long as our soldiers arc strong and sob.'; thoy will tako care of tho enem'es and save tho nation from pillage But you make tho soldiers of our nnny drunk, or weaken them by t'iy other means and you make them.in-capab- lo of driving tho enemies out. They cannot do their duty unlesi thoy aro healthy and sober. A drunken army could nover save our nation from capture and destruction. (Continued next week.) Now the body has a wonderf'd way of fighting these tiny enemies that enter to destroy. There is :. MAKE MONEY SELLING OUR NEW BOOK "THE PATH TO POWER." (By Rev. Chas. Spurgeon Knight.)

God says in Jeromiah 29:13, Te shall toek me and find me whon ye shall search for me with all your heart. What promise of salvation from the guilt of sin?

What promiso of salvation from the power of sin? It is written In Ezekiel 3G:26, A new heart also will I givo you, and a now spirit will I put within you, and I will take the stony heart out of your flesh and I will give you a heart of flesh. What promise like this in the New Testament? It is written in I John 5:4, Whoso ever is born of God overcometh the world. What evidence have you that you ire being saved? Tho promise of salvation from tho guilt and power of sin I claim for myself. I have come to Jesus with all my heart, and he says in John C:37, Him that cometh to me I will In no wise cast out.

PERSONAL EXPENSES for clothing, laundry, postage, books, etc, vary with different people. Berea favors plain clothing. Our climate is the best, but as students must attend classes regardless of the weather, warm wraps and underclothing, umbrellas and overshoes are necessary. THE STORE furnishes books, toilet articles, work uniforms, umbrellas and other necessary articles at cost LIVING EXPENSES are really below cost The College asks no rent for the fine buildings in which students live, charging only enough room rent to pay for cleaning, repairs, fuel, lights, and washing of bedding and towels. For table board, without coffee or extras, $1.35 a week, in the fall, nnd $1.50 in winter. For furnished room, with fuel, lights, washing of bedding, 40 to GO cents for each person. SCHOOL FEES are two. First a "DOLLAR DEPOSIT," as guarantee for return of room key, library books, etc. This is paid but once, and is returned when the student departs. Second an "INCIDENTAL FEE" to help on expenses for caro of school buildings, hospital, library, etc. (Students pay nothing for tuition or services of teachers all our instruction is a free gift).
