Alfred A. lihardson, chief game
warden. said a fetwc days ago:
"1". l. Grubhle, gane wardlen
front Clarendon county, has been in
to see me relative to some dyniito
cases in his county. According to
Mr. (b-umtable's statement, three 1n(
gr.oes nasmed Dickson and another
negro n'ale( Tom Brown went to
('ClIdo lake, near Davis Station, No
vember I and were dynamiting the
lake for the purpose of taking fish.
It seenis that one of the negroes.
Frazier Dickson, was haldling the
dynaiito and either cut his fuse too
short or the fuse was defective. At
any rate the dynamite exploded pre
maturely, killing Frazier. None of
he other negroes was injured. Game
Wardell Grumble immediately got on
the job, with the result that Tom
Brown and the uthr two Dicksons
have been placed in jail, charged
with ciolating section 757 of the
criminal code of 1912, which section
imposes a pentalty of $500 for dyna
miting any of the streatlis, lakes or
waters of the state for the purpose
of taking fish.
"This is the second case of dynamit
ing that has comae to my notice re
cent'-y. Rlecently I attended a pre
liniI nary trial at Bllackville of two
white mien, charged with dynalitilng
fish in the Edisto river, but we failed
to get a conviction. as the only wit
ness we had was a negro aned his tes
timony was not con1sidered by the
court to- he sufficient.
"These dynamite cases are the
hardest that I have to contend with.
'ihe crime is always committed in a
lonely spot and the violhtors use
every precaution toward secrecy. It

though it is to be regretted that one
of the party was killed, nevertheless
an example should he made of the
others. A few esamplea throughout
the state will go a long way toward
breaking up this dyt~aniting business
and if It is not broken up, it is just
a matter of time before all of the

LESSON FOR NOVEMBER '21
JONAH A MISSIONARY TO
LESSQN TOX'--Jonah 3:1-10.
GOLl)J:N TitX'T--Gu ye therefore, and
mrakle disciples of all nations, baptising
them into the nane of (he Fiather anti of
the Son and of the holy Spirit; teaching
thorn to obse-ve all things whatsotver I
cornmand you; and In, I an with you al
wa ys, even unto the end of the world.
Mutt. 28:19, 20 R. V.
The story of Jonah is one of the
most famous and most ii. arestirng in
the 1iible. In former series of lessons
more extended use has been made of
the book giving time to discuss its
historicity and other questions in
volved. 'T'his time only one reference
is used and that for the purpose of its
missionary teaching. We accept the
record of the book literally because
similar facts are recorded in profane
history but chiefly beuauso of the tes,
timony and tie usage made of it by
Jesus (see Matt. 12:40; 10:4 and
1. The Prophet Proclaiming, vv. 1-4.
Jonah "paid the fare" (1:3) and "out
of the depths" (Ps. 1:;0:1) God de
livered him- that. he might fulfill hi:;
God-appointed task. Even so the na
tion of Israel is today crying from out
of the depths of its woe among the
nations and will certainly n0 "deliv
ered" when the king comes, that it
may take its rightful place and fulfill
its 1God-appointed tasks. It is a won
dorful testimony of God's grace (vi)
that God's word came to Jonah a "sec
ond tie." Once he ran from God's
comand but God is the God of the
gospel of a "second chance" and a
third if only we repent and die his
commands, but God does not give a
"second chanco" to the unlrepentant
t Nuni. 1-1.-0--15). Verse two explicitly
sets forth thI messago Jonah is to de
liver even Ho we are to proclaim the
Gosi l I see I ('or. 15: 1-i) nit the spec
ulations of men nor the subtleties of
philosophy. 'lire mIess'nger of God
will find his 11'sige in the word of
(odl and will declare it. It is th
word which 1''rveais God's love, his
pan of salvation, and the destiny of
the saints. "fly tie foolishness of
lirenehi Ig'' lien will he savel. The
word "preach" literally means "to cry
out" or "call out." and implies that
earla.stlness and insistelee needful for
a true advocate or witness of God.
Rtut the power is not in us; it is not
the word of God mlogled with the the
ories of meni, or with such added to
the word. The Bible is the soul win
ners tie staff. Nineveh, vast magnif
icent and wealthy could not atone
for its wickedness; its greatness only
aggravated its condition. Jonah did
not spend any time to acquaint him
self with cond(itions or to (10 sight
seeing but cried, ''yet forty days, and
Ninevehl shall be overthrown." When
lie explicitly and1 minutely obeyed
andi dlelivered G;od's message he at
onces arlouised and arrested the atteni
tion of tile city. lie d1id not attemplt
to p)resent "credentials," nor exIplain
or detfond his message. lie did not
soek to harmonize it with "cur
rent thlought" nor give it a "miodl
ern'l expression."' H e was blunt
and wi thout comprom)ise but gave an
opiportunIity for repenIItance.
II. The People Penitent, vv. 5-10.
Nineveh paid inmmediate 1heed( to the
lnan who did niot slur over God1's wan
in1g. Had the city continuedl in sin, It
had not been delivered. Ninovoh did
four' thiings andl as a resuilt they were

his word (John 13 :20). (2) They

gave such ovidence b~y humbling them.
solves in the night of God from the
king upon the throne to "even thd
ieast." There was no app~larent attempt
to (quatlify Or to evade God's dlecree,
but rather to accept it and b~y taking
a proper place ini his sighit be. dleliv
ere'd from the penalty of their just
deser1't s. (:3) They prayedl (v. 8; ef.
(1, 7). Their prayer was intense. The
kind of prayer that counlts with God
m uist also count uiponl God, and( God
"'is slowv to anger', and( p)lenteous5 in
mercy" (Nebl. 9: 17). Prayer thlat is
effective is (a) grounded upon the
word of Goed (b) forsakes sin and (c)
obeys thle will of God. (James 1- 12;
2:17). (41) They made sacrifice (v. 8).
Mere humiliation andi prayer does not
effect a remedy unless there is a mner
ciless judgpient execuled upon sinl.
Did( Jonah fail in 1)1i, mission? No!
for God's predictions of' ruiin are nt
absolute and unconiditional (Jer.
18:7-10). Chapter fotir is the record
of Jlonah's petulance and of God's iou'
in g-kind ness.
Nineveh continuedl foi' -nearly 200
years subsequently but it was then so
