order that the best results may De secured for L the money expended The School Bjard provides liberally for the schools t ut their work could be greatly improved ifa suitable building fur the High School was pro vided There are too many de- artments in the one building for J PIhoweveriand efficient the teach 1 1competent and it will be a great benefit to aU if the High School iis given separate quarters and it be equipped with the necessary ap par tits As it is now only a part t tothe pupi s can get in the chapel E at one time and thus they are de prn ed of these gatherings This is need of

pass that as the Apeoplel pressedupon him to hear the wordof GodItspeaksI well Iiforthese men of Galilee that tthey were so eager to hear the Word ol God And it iis the only thing which men will hear for any lengths off I time He toodt bv the lake offfI icniifiarct Tins is called CIi mereth in the Old Testament from its resemblance in shape to a harp It is also called the sea of Galilee and the sea of Tiberias It is aI beautiful sheet of clear water through which the Jordan flows on its way I ttor the Dead Sea It is only a smallI allfd not quite seven miles broad at its widest But in the time of our Lordl it was the center of activity in that region many towns on its i hors and its waters covered with boats It was a famous fishing piace Ver 2 These boats were draw t upon shore The fishermen had been fishing during the night which was considered the most favorable time Now they were cleaning their nets of the mud and matter accumulated during the fishing I They were also engaged in mending t 1 their nets And he entered into y one of their ships which was Simons Simon was already a disciple as was his brother Andrew who was also an owner of the boat And1 prayed simply means d requested him The people could better as they sat on the curvin- I f I shore if our Lord was a little w- arout in a boat- LaunchII out into the deep and down your nets for a draught l Being about to call these fisher men to leave their work and I him our Lord strengthens thel faith with a mir cle These f Jur men were already disciples see John first chapter and had aocompanfccd the Lord for a while But on thei return to Galilee they had gone I bavingII was the best time for fishing As1 they had failed then Peter would I not of his own accord have thought cf trying again in the morning Nevertheless at tthy word IIwi let down the net There is faith and pron pt obdicnce It seeme a useless thing to do so to those ex perienced fishermen but since thc I Master said so they did not hesi tate Such obedience simply to l his audIO ity when men cannot see any advantage to accrue is always well pleasing to God 4 Andwhen they had thus done they inclosed a great multitude of fish There were two kinds of iin fidelity one of which frankly denies the miracle and the other admits miraelfs in a general way and then tries to explain all the supernatural away These seem to think the Almighty iis so feeble and man aging this little grain of sand which is all the earth is as compared to the universe is such a difficult work for Omnipotence it is necessary to assist him by making t miracles as easy as possible This explains that our Lords keen e no doubt saw a great shoal of us at the place to which he told them I to launch For one I deciedly 1 prefer the frank infidels who deny I miracles altogether Simon Peter certainly knew as much about the fishing in that lake as these modern I explainers away of the miracles a I q Jt Qitt and he was thoroughly impressed with the draught as a distinct evi dence af divine power Anti their net brakewas i I breaking began to break is the correct translation Hence the call to John and James their pardners I I to come quickly with their nets When Simon Peter saw it he fell down at Jesus kneesAndfe- eling of intense overpowering awe came upon Simon The very fish subIjectwas no mortal thought the fisher I theMalterslfeetDepart from me for 1am sinful man 0 LordMans first thought when in the presence of holiness whethor it be the presence of God or his holy angels is of his own sinfulness He shrinks back as did Adam among the trees of the garden With this awe this uni versal acknowledgment of guilt i 1also mingled fear arising from consciousness of deserving punishment Peters depart meant that he felt himself utterly unworthy of our Lords presence and not his dislike to that presence Heaven would be a place of torture to a sinful man who shotildfind admittance there To enioy Gods presence his creatures must be like him It For he was astonished and1 well he might be They hadcaught nothiug during the time most favor able for fishing and now at the fillednFear notThe words so often spoken by God and the angels to man trembling from a consciousness of guilt From henceforth thou shalt catch menThe word translatedmeans to take alive IfI II It is for life not far death that men are taken in the Gospel net I Peloubet There are many an alogies between the fishermens work and the preachers which teachers will readily see And when they had brought their ships to land they forsook all wafs not much but it was their allThey made no reservations they asked n questions He bade them follow him and they obeyed promptly John and James left the more for theivr ardid the poorer men Peter and An 1drew Such were those old
