were by a legislative act presented with all the public lands in such counties in 1832 and upon the silt of these lands the money obtained was Jo be devoted exclusively to road building but the kind of road was not designated None of the money thus secured was ever used for the construction of roads and the Shadoan bill provides for the use of this money as the Legisla ture of years ago intended

rPaceJesus temporary home at Ca pernaum probably the house of the former nshcrman Simon Peter NOTES AND CQMMENTS Into Capernaum Jesus headquar ters for about half of His ministry After some days During which He was on a preaching tour among the towns of Galilee 139 It was noised that He was in the house Or at home as in the margin He still had a place Lie could call home It was probably Peters house Since Jesus had left Ca yernaum He had been much talked about both by the common people who were His stanch friends and the scribes and religious teachers who very natUrally looked upon Him with suspi cion New methods and teachings ts pecially If they are religious are usually looked upon with suspicion Many were gathered together The friendly common people were in the majority but in the most prominent places were the scribes and members of the reli gious aristocracy They considered Jesus an unauthorized and unsafe teach er a nd meant to watch His movements very closely He spake the word unto them He was in a private house and simply and informally speaking to them of the kingdom that was at hand and of goodness and faith as conditions of trance into it The crowd was very dense both in the house and about it so that those who were bringing the sick man to Him and who were likely to be a little late could not even get near Him They come The relations and friends of the man The palsy A form of paralysis Borne of four Only four of those who came with him actually carried him When they could not they uncovered the roof When they could not they did there was no way so they made one there were obstacles and they surmounted them Such determination is magnificent of course they accom pUshed their purpose Broken it up Remember that the roofs of the small oriental houses were usually flat and reached by a small outside stairway They were made of rafters laid close together then a layer of brushwood and upon that 10 or 12 inches of solid earth This of course could be dug through without permanently injuring the roof Naturally the scribes who sat under the places where the digging was going on were npt in the best frame of mind by the time the man was let down Their faith Men who hew out way for thcrasclves ln spite of alt b icies d n fdoIt without faith thlr success li possible and that the struggle is worth while Those men had faith n Jesus It was nothing mystical perhaps not religious but real They had good reason to believe He would actually heal their friend if they gave Him the chance The sick man too had faith Son A sympathetic word Matthew adds be of good cheer words calculated to Increase the mans assur ance Thy sins arc forgiven Jesus saw in the man a desire for more than physical cure He knew the mans heart and saw that they were recon cUed He blasphemeth He insults God Straightway perceiving The scribes did not speak but Jesus stantly felt their displeasure and knew what caused it He would convince His critics of the truth of what He said about forgiveness by healing the mans body as his soul had been healed The Son of Man hath authority to forgive slnsiVhen we consider that two ele meats enter into the question of for giveness namely the heart of the sin ner and the heart of God and that God is waiting to forgive the instant the sin ner is ready we see that the mean ing is that Jesus could with authority announce forgiveness of sins Ordinary men cannot do this because they have not the Divine knowledge of the hearts of men and the heart of God that Jesus had This incident is Important as showing the beginning of the opposition of the orthodox religious teachers As yet tho cloud was no larger than a mans hand but within two years it would be a storm which should break above His head and increase in fury till it had taken the life of the young man Jesus of Nazareth who went about doing good Aiyi he arose A demonstration of the ppwer and authority of Jesus They were ll amazed Including the scribes who Were probably most surprised of 111311t demonstrations have little ef fect on who are most interested in maintaining their old opinions than getting at the truth And InI Go3 This cannot include the Jesus Influence among the common peo pie was growing rapidly the opposition of the religious aristocracy was solidify ing np less rapidly Spear Points Gods lore Is not intensified by our limitation of it You cannot hide poverty of thought with polysyllabtes The best in this world never find their best Jn this world It Is not necessary to be Irreverent In order to be reasonable Sonic

an idea that it would be impossible tor the crew of the to escape if anything were to happen to the boat while sub mergedIt suggested that the could escape through the torpedo tube at the bow of the boat but many naval officers thought that this could not be accomplished without Injury- It was finally decided to have a test in this and two large dogs were secured as qf the test The Holland boat Shark attached to the torpedo station was selected for the test and under the command of Lieut C T Nelson went out in the bay After being submerged one of the dogs was placed in the torpedo tube and a wooden wad placed behind the animal and the whole expelled in the same manner as would be a tor pedo Many thought that the force of the compressed air charge would kill the animal but it came to the surface and swam around as if nothing had happened The other dog was then experimented on and it likewise came7to Both animals wcre up and taken back to the station result bit the test shows that in IThe of trouble with the boats under water the crew could find an exit in Ihis manner and that the danger of jury would be very small OVERDUE FSH STORIES Tales of a Sea Serpent Jlonter Oyster und n
