OOLDUM TEXT "For the Kingdom of
God Is not eating and drinking, but right-
tousness and peace anil Joy In me lioijr
aiiost-"-Itom, 14 17 It. V.
This lesson deals with the last of
those four events that marked tho
crista In tho llto of Jesus at Caperna
um. It occurred Just before tho third
period of his Galilean ministry und his
final departure for Jerusalem.
Lessons II and VII. of tho second
quarter of this year showed us Jesus'
attitude towards tho law Hero we
seo his attitude towards rabbinical tra
dition. (1) They ore tho traditions of
men, nnd not tho law of God. (2) They
were mado n pretext whereby moo
evaded tho commands of the law.
" Wo seo beforo us three general divi
sions, I The accusation, v. 1-5; II
Tho answer, v. G-13, nnd 111 Tho ap
plication, v. 14-23.
The growing hatred of tho Phari
sees led them to make tho long Jour
ney from Jerusalem that they might
observe htm nniT'flnd wherein to ac
cuse htm. While they were studying
him they at tho Bamo tlmo revealed
their Ideal of tho kingdom of God.
They took special notlco that the dis
ciples of Jesus ate without the careful
observance of the ceremonial cleans
ing of their hands. Wo must not un
derstand this to mean so much tho
removal of actual uncloanncss, but
rather that the disciples had neglect
ed tho ceremonial oservoneo of tho
washing of hands of which tho Phari
sees were so punctilious. Mark (v. 3
and 4) adds Illumination by calling
eepeclal attention to these traditions
to which the Jews adhered so tena
ciously. Thus wo can see that their
Ideal of man's relation to God was
largely a matter of external ceremony.
Purity to them was an outward mat
ter, something largely governed by tho
traditions of men and which they had
"received to bold" v, 6. Tho answer
of Jesus reveals a very opposlto Ideal.
Ho begins by calling tho Pharisees
hypocrites. A hypocrite la a play
actor, one who hides behind a mask.
Then applying the prophecy of Isaiah,
Jesus tells tho Pharisees that they
aro hiding their truo character behind
tho mask of ceremonial cleansing.
Such play acting Is but a poor Imi
tation of tho real heart condition do
mandod by God (Ps. 61:10). Their
hearts were far from God even though
with their lips they professed to
serve him, "and many llko things
ye do." Tho service which Is pleas
ing to God Is the doing of his will. It
consists not In the fulfilling of a rit
ual, but In tho fulfillment of life, o. g ,
a growing character.
Jesus tnkes advantage of this dis
cussion and turning to tho mutttude
upon whom the Pharisees would bind
such a grievous burden of cermonlal
Ism and falsehood (Matt 13-4) warns
them that it Is not so much that which
enters Into a man that dcllles him, but
rather that which proceeds out of a
man, v. 15. It seems quite natural that
tho disciples should bo perplexed and
Bhould ask Jesus what was meant by
such a statement, Jesus' answer, v.
1S-23, shows us very clearly that
these things coming forth, reveal the
corruption within. Head Matthew
12:31, 35, Gen. 0:5 and James 3.10-12.
Ileal purity Is purity of heart, If the
heart bo not cleansed, what will It
avail It wo wash the hands? What,
then, is tho application for this pres
ent day? Clearly wo aro taught the
danger of Up service without a change
of heart. The danger of substituting
tho good for the best. Forms and
ceremonies are good and havo their
placo. They are significant. They
oro Important teaching factors, but
they must not be substituted for a
puro heart. We must beware lost wo
hide behind such a mask,
Tlrero Is here also the plain teach
ing as to Jesus' estttnato of the Pen
tateuch and tnferentlally of the proph
ecy of Isaiah. He specltlcally calls It
tho "Word of God. Surely wo can
nccept his cstlmato ob contrasted
with tho traditions of tho elders or
the "consensus of modern thought"

things that are cursing tho rising gen
eration, And lastly, there Is hero a lessrjn
to emphasize as to what constitutes
real cleansing. The believer Is
cleansed "once tor all." Hcb. 10-1-12,
but needs frequent dally confession
that he may abide la unbroken fel
lowship. The blood of Christ not
only cleanses from the guilt but tbo
defilement also. Eph. 5:25-27 and I.

WHALE DYING OUT
Fear the Extinction of Species
Through Reckless Waste.
Board of Agriculture and Fisheries Is
sues Report Warning Against the
Consequences of Excessive Hunt
ing In Northern Waters.
Washington. Danger of the total
extinction of the whale through "over
fishing" Is dealt with In the thirteenth
annual rtport on fisheries, Issued by
the board of agriculture and fisher
ies. It is unquestionable, sas the re
port, that In tho caso of a slow-grow
ing and slow-producing animal like
the whale, although, owing to its wide
range, it will probably never be ab
solutely exterminated, excessive
hunting speedily results in a very
marked depletion of the Btock.
The practical exttuctton of the
Basque and Greenland whale fiabcrlo-i
has abundantly proved this. It must
be remembered, too, that this result
was brought about by means of the
open and hand barpoon methods
which are now obsolete.
The Greenland whale was a com
paratively sluggish and timid ani
mal, whose capture by the method re
ferred,, to presented little difficulty,
whereas the rorquals and other spe
cies were not only too swift, but too
dangerous to be attacked in the same
manner as the "right" whnle
With the introduction, however, of
tho harpoon with explosive shell, dis
charged from a cannou mounted In
the bows of a steamer, the conditions
were entirely changed, and the sp
cles formerly Immuue from attack
could now be hunted with impunity.
The result of this revolution in tho
conditions under which the fishing
could be prosecuted Is seen in the
enormous dimensions which tho In
dustry has attained at the present
It is estimated that In 1911 be
tween 19,000 and 20,000 whales were
captured in the southern hemisphere
alone (South Gecrgla, South Shetland,
South America, South Africa), to
which has to be added the catch In-
North America, Japan, Faroe, Iceland,
Spltzbergen and Greenland, and these
figures will probably be greatly ex
ceeded in 1912, as numerous new com
panies have been formed to exploit
Alaskan, Australasian and Sandwich
This wholesale destruction must in
evitably tell Its tale within a few
years, and, as a matter of fact. In New
foundland and Iceland fears are al
ready entertalnod that the fishing Is
on the decline.
