CO1 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

CO1 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

CO1 3:8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

CO1 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

CO1 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

"We will give him a run for his money," he declared, as the car moved countryward. "Conductor, let us off at the muddiest lane you can find."

At one o'clock, after a six-mile ramble, we entered a small country hotel. We had seen nothing of Johnson for a half hour. At that time he was a quarter of a mile behind us, and losing rapidly. Before we had finished our luncheon he staggered into the inn. One
