The Silent Looks of
the Son of God
By REV. GEORGE E. GUILLE
Extension Dopaitmortt, Moody
/ Bible Institute, Chicago. v
TEXT-And Jesus entered into Jerusa
lem, and Into the^templo: and when Ho
had looked round about upon all thing?,
and now tho ovontldo was como, Ho
wont out unto Bethany.-Mark Hill.
Tho very silence of this net ls
startling. Looks without words are
often most sig
nificant, and this
simple look upon
all things at
eventide, only to
turn Ills hack
upon them, i s
solemnly so. R
is tis though Ho
hud pronounced
Judgment upon
all that Uo saw.
Tho templo, ns
lils Father's
house, should
hove been His
own, but He linds nothing to His
satisfaction and loaves it. Leaving
lt* He feaves tho holy city too, for
Hotbany, "the house of humiliation,"
where dione He can abide.
X. This scene recalls another, in
blessed contras!', and described, in
John 20:ll)-20.- ' 'The disciples aro
gathered and the risen Lord, with
Infinite blessing, ls Ip their midst; It
is a picture of who/ every Kat hering
of the saints should bo-a gathering
round ,tho Lord. How blessed to be
there! Bul what Vlf He ls not seen?
What if there ls Something, as often
there Is, that keeps Him away, and
Ile cannot have tho place Ho Joys to
take, ns minister of blessing to His
own-what then?
Ab, then Ile comos as He carno to
the temple. In silent majesty.
And what does Ho seo? He sees
perfect order and decorum. Ile sees
a comfortable und attractive building
with well-dressed and well-behaved
people. But He sees' orutoricul
pyrotechnics, Instead tjf the proclama
tion of Ills Word, or hears Its
authority and finality denied. \Ho
liears a feeble song purporting to be
to His praise, and sees thc choir
entertaining the congregation with ?fn
anthem, but bears not what they soy.
Looking deeper, He sees hearts un
exercised by His Word nor filled with
love to Him. He sees men who think
inoro of business than, of Him and
women whoso pleasures aro dearer
than He. He sees no souls bowed with
a sense of sin coming to accept Him
ns tho only Savior and Lord. And Ho
goes out I
Oh, Jesus, stay l Look round again
and let those eyes search us through.
Fix that gaze upon our Inmost heart
and let us see what it beholds. Platt
ngaln the scourge nnd drive out tho
things thnt offend Thee. But tarry
with us ! Wo sholl ,be with Thee for
ever yonder: we must have Theo
now 1
2. In Mnt*k 8:09 another of those
Silent looks .ts recorded. "When ho
lind turned/round nbout and looked
upon his disciples, bo rebuked Peter."
When Ho must rebuke one, Ho will
look upon all, When He administers
tho necessary chastening of tho
Father's house to one whom He loves,
Ills eye ls on the others. When, by
great sorrow or njlllctlon, He must
break the heart of one, He thinks of
the rest. And the reason for lt ap
pears in Paul's words to Timothy:
"Thom that-sin rebuke before all, that
others also may fear." Yea, nt such
a timo, wo HOC those eyes fastened
upon us In loving admonition,
3. In Luke 22:01 we are told of
another of these. "And tho Lord
turned ?nd loojced upon Peter." Did
He speak? Not a word I No word was
necessary. He looked and broke tho
heart of bis sinning disciple nnd "he
went out and wept bitterly." Those
bitter tdars show what that look con
veyed to Peter's soul. Ile bas looked
in that way at you as He has nt me.
A look of loving rebuke nnd pitying
compassion and melting grief.. Wo
havo soon lt in the midst of our de
nials of Him ninong lils enemies, In
the midst of our careless nnd unholy
ways or our sinful Indulgences. How
often bas It recalled us from tboso
nnd sent us out td weep 1 But blessed
bo His namoi If He search us out
thus, lt ls only to restore the fellow
ship with Ulm willoh sin bas broken.
4. Still another of these silent
looks: "And when Jesus bad looked
round about on them with anger, be
ing grieved for the hardness of their
hearts." Mark 0 :f>. When grief turns
to anger ami love becomes wrath,
who can abide Its coming? What so
terrible as "the wroth of tho Lamb?"
How shall HU) people return tboso
looks? By "looking unto Jesus" in
turill "We nil, gazing on tho glory
of the Lord with unveiled face, aro
changed into tho saino imago."
"Stephen looked steadfastly toward
heaven, and said I see Jesus." "And
all they that sat In trie council, be
held bis face os it bad been the faco
of an angel." Oh, return tho look and
lt shall make you Uko Him.
Bow Shall the sinner return tboso
looks of tho Snvlor? Ile lins told bowl
"Look unto me nnd bo ye saved."
Look, not at yourself, but ;.t Him,
dying, risen, pleading now with thee!
Look 1 with all the conscious need of
your sinful hurt I Look, with the eye
of fntih that says, "Ile died for me."
One such look and you ure His, saved
and safo forever!
.Thero' ls life for a look at tho CincMod

TRAGEDY AT THE ORR MILLS.
Walter Allen Kills Wife and Her Mo
ther and Thou Shoots Himself.
" Anderson, Sept. 12.-Mrs. Alice
Mc Alister and hor daughter, Mrs.
Walter Allen, aro dead, and Walter
Allen ls dying as tho result of an
early morning tragedy at Orr Mill, a
mill village near this city.
The two women were shot anet
killed as they sat at the broakfast
tahlo hy tho husband of tho younger
woman, who turned Into an adja
conl room and fired a shot into his
own body. At 8 o'clock he was lying
on tho floor of tho bedroom in which
ho fell, still Uvlng, but despaired of
by the doctprs. Domestic troubles
aro thought, to havo been tho cause
of the triplo tragedy.
First accounts of tho tragedy do
not include thc statement of an eye
witness to tho killing, but neighbors
who roached the homo immediately
af tor the shots were fired say that
tho husband entorcd the house 'and
demanded lo know where his gun
was hidden. Upon being told by his
wifo that she did not know where his
pistol was, he ls said to havo de
manded In a gruff voice:
"Well, what arc you going to do
about it?" . ...
With that he whipped out a" re
volver and fired first at Mrs. Alice
Mc Alister, killing her with a bullet
through tho heart. Mo then tired up
on his wife. Mrs. Sallie McAlister Al
lon, killing her, and went into the
next room and fired a bullet into his
own body.
Family Dissension tho Cause.
Tho tragedy this morning comes
as the culmination of ti long string
of events which have wrecked tho
happiness of the home of Walter Al
len. Speaking to tho brother 'of Mrs.
Allen, .James McAlister, this morn
ing Hie reporters learned that his
sistor had como home to 1 uderson
about two weeks ago and that sho
had eparated. from her husband.
Ho. had always been mean to
her," said Mr. McAlister, "and two
weeks ago she and her little daugh
ter carno homo to mother's to be
away from him. This was the first,
time they had been separated. Ho
had abused and ill-treated her until
sho was forced to leave him.
"I don't know just exactly how
tho thing happened. I had gone to
work in tho mill when tho shooting
occurred, and ho was lying there on
tho floor when I reached home aflor
hearing tho news. My wife, I think,
was In the room when tho trouble
started, and I think she saw the
whole of it.
"All I know is that he just carno
hero this morning some timo and
shot and killed thom both."

(Daily Mail, Sept. 1.1.)
That Walter Allen, when ho mur
dered his wife and mother-in-law

lago and then committed suicide, dftl
only part of what he had planned ls
tho statement of W. R, Lanier, of

derson to soo his wifo. Ho mot her
as sho was on tho way to the cotton
mill, and told her thal ho had como
to ?alco her home. This Information
was fumlshod by Jim McAllister,who
was at homo at tho timo. .
"My sister was going to tho mill
with my wife," ho said, "and I was
at homo eating breakfast. Allon
droVO tip and met them and told his
wifo that ho wanted hor to go back
with him. She refused him, tolling
him that sh? hod triod him before
and that sho would not return.
" 'Well, which would you rather
do-go back to Oroonvlllo with mo
cr die1?7 ho asked her.
" 'I'd die first?," Jim McAllIs'.or
says his sister told him.
'?(About that time tho whistlo blew
and my wifo and sister carno on back
to tho house, Ho carno on thoro Just
a little lator, and then I wont oui on

Greenville, Sept. ll.-Editor Keo
woe Courier: Will you allow mo a
little space in (your splendid paper to
say a few words for tho good of our
State-for the good of those who aro
now mature, those who aro young
and those yet unborn?
During tho last ninety days we
havo boord a great deal about tho
enforcement of tho laws. Wo havo
heard candidates pledging them
selves to enforco laws if elected. Wo
havo beard newspapers urging tho
people to voto for tho candidate who
would enforco the laws, and we havo
heard tho "dear pcoplo" themselves
saying that they intended to vote
for Hie mon who, in their estimation,
would enforce tho hjws. Tho election
will bo ovor by tho time this is pub
lished, but aro wo going to promptly
forgot to display further interest in
tho enforcement of tho laws? Is tho
enforcement of law to be classed
amongst the light campaign pledges
or amongst tho votc-gotting cam
paign "issues"?
Without la\vs 'life and property
would bo hopelessly insecuro and
would bo wasted without con
science or fear by those of crimi
nal bent. Laws and tho enforcement
of laws spoils security and freedom.
There could bo no independence
without laws for tho government of
all and tho restraining of those who
havo within tbomsclvcs no regard
for the rights of others, instead of
robbing our people of their liberties,
just laws, properly enforced, consti
tute tho only guarantee of our liber
ties. Can hot wo, therefore, continuo
our campaign for enforcement of
laws? Cannot wo now practico what
wo havo hoard preached for tho last
ninety days? lt would make our State
a much bettor place in which to Uvo,
both for ourselves and tboso who aro
lo bo tho South Carolinians of the
future.
,A11 citizens must tn ko a band and
display a practical interest. The press
must got squaroly behind tho issue
and our ministers of the Gospel must
devoto some of tholr timo to the
work themselves and instructing
mombors of tholr flocks in Hie mat
ter. When Ono law is being violated
as it is to-day around every corner,
on every brook, in overy pntch of
woods-yes, even in marty homes
it is impossible for tho officers of the
law to discover all violators so long
as thoy aro unassisted by the public.
Tho officers can make the arrests,
caro for the prlsonors and prosecute
Walhalla, S. C.
?st Union, S. C.
the caaes, hut thoy must have infor
mation from tho public as to who Is
violating tho lnw, and as to where
tho law is being violated. Tho law
ls hoing violated in your neighbor
hood, but If the olllcers aro not told
about it it will bo a long time before
h stop is put to tho violations. Do
you want to continue to live in a com
munity whoro tho law is being vio
lated, with your property insecure,
and tho lives of your children, your
wife and yourself In jeopardy? Why
not step up to your chief of pollco, to
your sheriff, or lo tho Federal pro
hibition agent, and give the informa
tion? If tho prohibition law is ho
ing violated you will not hayo to re
port thc mnttor more than once to a
Fcdoral prohibition agent or to ibis
ofllco to havo tho violation stopped.
Wo aro only too glad to do tho work
for tho good of your community and
your name will not bo made public
your name will be held in tho strict
est confidence. 5Vro wc in earnest
about this mnttor of enforcing tho
law?
Humors aro floating about regard
ing tho honesty of somo officers.
What evidence ls thoro to support
those rumors? Havo you given tho
olllcers a try? Havo they failed to
act on definite information given by
you? If they have and the matter ls
a violation of tho Volstead Akt, write
your information to tho Federal .Pro
hibition Director, Greenville, S. C.
If the matter ls ono of urgency tel
ephone or telegraph me at my ex
pense. The Prohibition Department
of South Carolina has not fnilod you.
i can vouch for that. Tho olllcors of
tho department aro honest. I can
vouch fo? that.
