What an awesome Autumn! The beautiful colored leaves, the "mums", the piles of pumpkins and tall corn shocks. Did you know the Bible talks about a scarecrow in the melon patch? Do read Jeremiah Chapter 10. Also Isaiah 45. "Surely God is with you. There is no God apart from me, a righteous God and Savior. Turn to me and be saved all ends of the earth."

BOY'S MAGAZINES 90 YEARS AGO

 

The other day I picked up the 1914 issue of Boys Magazine. It measures 14.5 by 10.5 inches. This monthly publication came out of Smethport, PA and claimed to have a circulation of over 100,000. Each copy was 10 cents or 1 dollar per year.

If you are not over 60 years of age you may as well stop right here because the things I noticed you won't be the least bit interested in.
