Common Salt Is
Useful Mineral

Salt is the most common
mineral in existence, but do
you know of any more useful?
Since early times salt has been
associated with value and
worthiness, as witness the
Biblical statement, ''Ye are the
salt of the earth'' (Matthew
5:13).

To primitive people salt rep-
resented something that was
not perishable and that would
keep foods from spoiling; hence
the sacred significance with
which salt was endowed.

We find that whenever
sodium chloride is named in the
Bible it is done so in language
stamping is as a most important
essential. Especially do we
notice this in directions for re-
ligious services. When Elisha
sweetened the waters of Jeri-
cho he cast salt into them, il-
lustrating the purifying prop-
erties of salt, for he said, ''I
have healed these waters'' (II
Kings 11).

The widespead notion that
the spilling of salt produces
evil consequences was probably
due to the sacred character of
salt in early times. Anyone hav-
ing the misfortune to spill salt
was supposed to incur the
anger of all good spirits. Le-
onardo Da Vinci evidently had
this superstition in mind when
he portrayed an overturned
salt cellar before Judas in the
painting, ''The Last Supper.''

Through the ages belief in the
sacred properties of salt per-
sisted. In Scotland salt was in
high repute as a charm, and the
salt box was the first chattel
to be removed to a new dwell-
ing. When Robert Burns, in the
year 1789, was about to oc-
cupy a new house a Ellisland,
he was escorted on his route
along the banks of the River
Nith by a procession of rela-
tives, and in their midst was
carried a bowl of salt resting

SALT AS A COVENANT

In Eastern countries it is a
time-honored custom to place
salt before strangers as a token
and pledge of friendship and
good will.

The antiquity of the practice
of using salt in confirmation of
an oath is shown in the follow-
ing passage form an ode of the
Greek lyric poet, Archilochus,
who flourished 2,000 years ago:
''Thou hast broken the solemn
oath
And hast disgraced the salt and
the table.''

Even at the present time,
Arabian princes are wont to
ratify an alliance by sprinkling
salt upon bread, exclaiming, ''I
am the friend of thy friends,
and the enemy of thine enem-
ies.''

During the Indian mutiny of
1857 a chief motive the self-re-
straint among the Sepoys was
the fact that they had sworn
by their salt to be loyal to the
English Queen.

on the family Bible. Peculiar
notions about the magical
properties of salt were common
among uneducated people in
this country. In some regions,
a new tenant would not move
into a furnished house until all
the objects therein had been
thoroughly salted, with a view
to the destruction of witch-
germs.

LINES FROM
THE LIBRARY

Two members of the Boys'
Libaray Club recently remem-
bered the library by donating
books. These boys are Bobby
Hawkins and Buddy Stephen-
son.

Bobby, a son of Mr. and Mrs.
Stanley Hawkins, donated a
very attractive book called
''It's Story Time.'' This book
is suitable for the very small
child and its collection of stor-
ies includes ''Red Riding
Hood,'' ''Three Little Kittens,''
''Henny Penny,'' and many
other childhood favorites. We
thank Bobby for this book and
invite the youngsters to read it
soon.

The book which Buddy do-
nated is one of the Elson Gray
series and is especially appro-
priate for first and second grade
children. The book is beautiful-
ly illustrated and will be very
interesting to the child who is
just beginning to read. In ad-
dition to a nice collection of
stories familiar to the child, the
book also contains ''Happy
Day'' stories for such occasions
as Easter, Thanksgiving, and
Christmas.

Buddy, a son of Mr. and Mrs.
W. W. Stephenson, has been a
member of Boys' Club for quite
a while, and we appreciate his
thoughtfulness in donating this
book.

Although this suggestion
may seem somewhat belated,
we feel that it will be welcomed
by the housewife who is still
confronted with the question of
what to do with the beautiful
Christmas cards received dur-
ing the holiday season. Those
who consider such cards too
pretty to destroy will probably
be interested in knowing that
they can be used to an advant-
age. Acording to an item ap-
pearing in ''The Baptist
Courier'' for January 10, 1946,
the Save the Children Federa-
tion can use these cards to the
delight and cultural benefit of

ries on its services to under-
privileged children in remote
rural schools where attractive
pictures are seldom seen. Just
put as many cards as you wish
into a package, write your
name and address on the outside,
and mail to Save the Children
Workroom, 8 Washington
Place, New York 3, N. Y. Upon
receipt of your cards, the Fede-
ration will assort and forward
them to area centres for direct
distribution.

We are anxious to enlist all
children between the ages of
3 and 12 in the library clubs.
Any child within this age
range is urged to join the
group to which he is best suited
according to age. The schedule
of club meetings is as follows:
Girls' Club (Age 8-12) - Mon.
P. M. at 3 o'clock.
Boys' Club (Age 8-12) - Wed.

men, each of them will serve as

good points of one and imitate
them, and the bad points of an-
other and correct them in my-
self.'' - Confucius
