Drama of Christ and
the Multitude
By REV. J. H. SCHAFFER
Director ot Evening Clauca. Moody
Bible Institute, Chicago.
TEXT.-And bloused ia he, whosoever
.hall not be offended In me.-Matt 11:6,
When Jesus stepped onto the stage
of tills world's history He soon be~
came a startling,
se n s a 11 o n a 1,
crowd - compel
11 n g attroctlon.
Everywhere He
went the multl
t u d e thronged
about Him to see
His mim?les and
hear His teach
ing. Picture such
a scene as is sug
gested In Mutt.
4:23-25. Consider
the supcrlutivcs
here: "All Galilee;" "All manner of
sickness ;" "All mininer of disenso."
What a clinic! Ills fume went
throughout ull Syria. They brought
unto Him ull sick people and He
honied them. Hud ever physician or
surgeon such success ? "And there fol
lowed Him great multitudes ol' peo
ple." What renown ! The whole
country was stirred to wild enthusi
asm. Over the hills und valleys of
Galilee-far away to the south to Jeru
salem-across the Jordan into Syria,
tho news was carried of tho strange
and unaccountable deeds of this new
prophet.
One day thu .situation became so In
tense that popularity spelled peril.
Jesus, to prevent a riotous demonstra
tion, hud to disentangle Himself from
the crowd by inking ship across the
Sea ol' Galilee to His prayer retreat in
the mountain. But the people were
not so easily dispersed. Thia only
served to Inflame their ambitions. They
determined to press their demands.
Around the head of the lake u vust
procession pursues, as tho boat curries
Him away from them. They will ibid
Him on the other side, but when they
urrive He ls gone. Whither they know
not. They ure uroused from their in
tent, to realise a gnawing hunger at
the close of day lu a waste and burren
desert.
Boy's Lunch Feeds Multitude.
The watchful eye o? Jesus wus upon
the surging, seething throng. He
knew their need, lils compulsion was
touched. He came to their relief. But
what could He do? No money-no
bread, no shops-nothing of human re
source to meet this tremendous need.
Oh 1 u gleam of hopo l Andrew has
found a boy with u few bites for a
lunch-noe louves-not fishes, but five
Slices and two sardine's. But what arc
tliCt??? Nothing io a mun-less to a
crowd of thousnnds-but to Jesus suf
ficient for every need. He used what
a boy gave Him und fed full every
member of that host and they took up
twelve baskets of fragments. The res
idue fur exceeded the original Invest
ment. It always does in His hands.
Far more passionate than before be
came the multitude, now hunger ap
peased, until turned into a wild tumul
tuous throng that clamored to make
Jesus king. Why nol? A king who
could feed them with miracle bread
when hungry, who could command
their diseases and conquer their dev
ils, who could meet every crisis with
such poise and serenity ! The cry was
lifted, Lend on, O King! from five
thousand voices. But behold, he re
sponds not He ls unmoved by this
uprising. He again eludes the crowd.
But nothing save kingship thrust upon
Him would calm their emotional tem
pest. They take up the trail again,
until they And Him In Capernaum the
next day.
His opportunity has now come. They
must have the mists of delusion dis
pelled. They must know His terms of
kingship. He knows their heurts. He
dares to tear off the mask : "Ye seek
me for the louves and nahes."
Turn Away Offended.
What a rebuke! Their selfishness
was unclothed. They hogan to mur
mur. They challenged Him with ques
tions*. Slowly Ho dropped the veli of
prophet and miracle worker and dis
closed His real identity as Messiah
Son of God, Eternal Bread of Heaven.
They looked lu skeptical wonder.
What can lie mean? How can ho give
us his flesh to eat? Why, he's crazy.
His head is turned. Wo know bis
mother. We know the carpenter shop
where he worked with hts father. Wo
know the town he caine from. He ls
beside himself. Think of what he ls
saying! He will give eternal life I
Why, this ls blasphemy I "And from
that timo many of His disciples- walked
no more with Him."
How largely this pictures the atti
tude Of the world to Jesus ever since
-turning the back on Him. Oh, tho
crowds fed by Him, protected by Him,
who have turned their backs, His only
reward for compassion and provision.
Oh, why are men offended In Jesus?
In almost every crowd, when the gos
pel bas been preached, some hove mur.
mured, disbelieved, rebelled, turned
away-never to come back. Why?
"Men loved darkness rather than
light, because their deeds were evil."_
John 3:19. And their darkened minds
fall to understand Ills message.
They stumble nt tho cross-"Christ
crucified, unto tho Jews u stumbling
block, und unto the Greeks (Gentiles)
foolishness."-I Cor. 1:23.

unbelief."-Heb. 3:10.

FORMER GOONBEAN WANTS TO
See Better Roads la South - Com
parison Educational Methods.
_!_
Trenton, N. J., June 28, 1921.
To the Editor of The Keowee Courier
and its Many 'Readers:
lt has been some time since I have
talked through the columns of the
dear old Keowee Courier, wheh I
am always glad and proud to read.
I would like to say a few things in
regard to the condition of the roads
and public jjchools. There is quite a
difference between the methods em
ployed by the various schools in the
southern and Eastern parts of these
our United States or America.
Children here are taught sight
reading. 'Pupils having iinished tho
?first, grade are able to read a large
number of words, but are unable to
say the alphabet in its order. Par
ents ?re requested not to teach th?, j
old-fashioned A-I3-C. Education is: j
compulsory. When a child is absent i
from school an oflicer calls at the '
home of the parents to ascertain th?3 j
reason for thc child's absence. No I
child is permitted at home on a reg-!
ular school day unless there ls good !
and su Hielen t reason for its absente;
from school. Therefore, parents can-'
not keej) their child home "to tend ,
the baby," to chop fire-wood or to
work in tho field. One of thc fin eb?
things about the schools bert; is tho
absence of violent punishment, it
being a Stale law that no suporin-l
tendent, principal or teacher may
punish a pupil with violence, which
in most eases is purely an expression
of anger on the pari of the teacher.
Any punishment that is needed must '
he administered at home, or the par-!
outs will bi; handled through the
courts and sentenced lo Hue. or, in I
the absence of payment of same, to |
Imprisonment. This being the case, .
parents are kept constantly in touch
with the child's school life. ?
Having been taught in Oconee
county, and knowing how freely the
teachers punish the children, and i
having seen the method employed j
here, I can safely say the children '
are taught a great deal more by
kindness than by harshness. To my i
mind there has never been a point !
gained by cruel treatment, even to!
the animals. 1 know I will be dis-'
cussed for this suggestion, but I hope
the Hmo will come when South Car
olina will follow in tho footsteps of
some of her sisfar States and abol
ish the hickory switch from the
schools, No parent or teacher eau
have the respect that Hod gave them I
for a child after having displayed
their temper by whipping a child. j
As to the roads: The first quos- j
Hon is this: How much closer to the!
market is the average farmer to-day j
than he was ten years ago? lt seems j
to me the roads are very little better j
now than they were ten years ago, !
as I remember them. I went over a
great many of them in .May of this;
year. In fact, I was over most of tho
county roads, lt is terrible to think,
that In this progressive age lt takes!
a team from one lo two days to make
a trip to town, the trip covering only
! from l-l lo 20 miles each way. Also,1
i ?
there are times when lt is almost j
impossible during the winter to get .
a team over the roads at all. I have;
In mind the Stump-House Mountain
road In particular. It is no wonder !
ibe farmers would rather sit at home
than attempt to force their animals'
over such roads. I shudder to think j
bow one would feel lo be In need j
of a doctor in great baste, and to re- j
allze that they could get to the doc- j
tor In time to save their loved ono's j
life tho doctor would probably bel
forced to decline to go on account
Of the time it would take to get over j
tho roads.
1 think steps should be taken to
raise money lo fix the roads-not ,
with earth, but with stone, asphalt I
and cement-especially the main
roads; for instance, from Walhalla,
, Ibo county seat, to Knox's Bridge, lo
j Clemson College, to Salem and to

Slump-House 'Mountain, the latter
road being the conecting link be
tween Georgia and North Carolina.
These four main roads should be
made of good materials that wea
ther conditions Will not interfere
with, that the farmer may have an
outlet for his produce at all seasons
of the year.
In going over the old Southern
Rairway road-bed from Westminster
to Toccoa, Cu., on May 6th, I found
the portion o.' the road that was
being worked, and had been worked,
was in a far worse condition than
the portion that had not been then
touched Knowing the old road-bed
had a good ballast, it would have
been an excellent idea to have given
it a heavy coat of ground rock ami
topped it off with asphalt or cement,
the latter being best. The expenso,
while heavy, would have been un ex
penditure made for a life-time, the
work would have been a lasting Job,
and would probably have needed nu
more attention for at least ten or
Hf teen years.
I will be so glad for the tinto to
come when the Southern States will
have roads that are accessible at all
seasons of the year, (hus helping the
school? to rise to a higher level than
they can ever reach under the pres
ent conditions, and at the same time
giving the farmer nt leas! a reason
ably easy manner ot putting bis pro
duce Into the hands of the consum
ing public. Yours truly,

Anderson, .lune 27.-Two young
white men were killed near here on
Saturday night when a Ford car and
a truck collided. Janies Medlin, the
15-year-old boy who was driving the
'Ford, was probably killed instantly,
while Millard (liles lived until ho
was brought to a local hospital, but
died before he was taken In. The
driver of the truck was K. T. 'Met
calf ,of this city, and he was taking
a load of ball players to Pel ?er after
a game here, iBoth care were said
to have been driven without lights.
The truck was on the right side of
the road, and the Ford in turning
a curve on the national highway near
the home of J. B. Spearman did not
slow down, and took the inside to
make the curve, hitting the truck.
The boys in the Ford were returning
from a baseball game in tireen ville.
The others in the car were Wade Jef
ferson, Ben Lee, Virgil McClellan and
Radcliffe Vernor. All of these boys
were bruised when the Ford car was
overturned. Ben Lee war. cut, but
after having his wounds at.ended lo
left the hospital. The lop of thc
Ford probably saved the lives of the
other boys. The funeral of Millard
