Hit Majesty, the Snake
The secret empire of the snake
men, ruled over by a snake em
peror, is described for the first time
in the Cosmopolitan by F. G. Carno
chan, who discovered It when he
went with the Smithsonian-Chrys
ler African expedition to get rep
tiles for the national zoological
park in Washington. “I not only
found the Snake People,” he write*,
“md became a friend of their em
peror, but was also enrolled In their
ranks and tanght their secret medi
cine. Among their drugs I dis
covered preparations that immu
nize men against the venom of the
deadliest snakes, powders which
turn those to whom they are given
Into putty-willed robots and hun
dreds of prescriptions designed to
cure the ailing."

The young church had met and
overcome some serious difficulties
She first had to face religious perse
cution at the hands of Jews. Then
came Internal troubles as to the
support of certain widows. The
separating wall of Pharisaical legal
ism was broken down in the admis
sion of Gentiles into the church, but
finally she had to meet the naked
sword of civil authority. Through
all these tests she was more than
I. Peter's Imprisonment (w. 1-4).
1. By whom (v. 1). Herod, the
grandson of the wicked Herod who
slew the innocent children of Beth
lehem. His half-sister, Herodias,
secured the death of John the Bap
2. The reason (v. 3). It was to
gain the favor of the Jews. Herod
was not a Jew but an Edomite.
Therefore, he knew that his success
was dependent upon his having the
good will of the Jews. He seems
not particularly to have hated the
church, but to have loved popular
ity, for the sake of which he mani
fested a deep sympathy for degen
erate Judaism. Since the church
had so developed as to be a success
ful rival of Judaism, he saw an op
portunity to curry favor with the
Jews by putting forth his bands
3. The method (v. 4). He was
arrested, put into prison and guard
ed by sixteen soldiers, one group of
four for each watch of the night
Humanly speaking it was impossi
ble to escape. They had doubtless
beard of Peter’s escape from jail be
fore, so they thought they would
take no risks this time. However,
they reckoned without God.
11. The Church of God In Prayer
The church was at a crisis. James,
one of the brethren of the church,
was dead, and Peter, the most prom
inent of all, was in prison. In this
desperate strait, they betook them
selves to prayer. This was a note
1. It was unto God. All true
prayer is unto God.
2. It was united prayer. There
Is peculiar power in the united
prayer of God’s people.
3. It was more than unceasing
prayer. It was the intensely earn
est desire of the soul stretched to
4. It whs uvdnite prayer. They
specifically offered prayer to God
111. Peter Delivered by an Angel
This occurred the night before
Herod’s plan to make a public dis
play of him.
1. Peter sleep’ng (▼. 6). This
shows that he was not disturbed
over the matter. The Lord keeps
In perfect peace those whose minds
are stayed on him (Isa. 26:3).
2. Peter leaves the prison (vv. 7-
10). A heavenly light shone In the
prison. The angel smote Peter on
the side. The chains fell off. Peter
put on his clothes and passed by
one guard after another, through
the Iron gate and Into the city. The
whole transaction was orderly and
leisurely, showing that God is not
In a hurry.
3. The effect upon Peter (v. 11).
Although the matter was so wonder
ful to Peter, who thought himself
In a vision, when he came to him
self he knew that God had miracu
lously delivered him from Herod's
IV. Unconscious Unbelief (w.
L The behavior of Peter and the
church (vv. 12-17). Peter went to
the house of Mary and knocked.
The knock was answered by Rhoda,
who was so overjoyed that she for
got to open the gate, and went right
In and told them that Peter was at
the gate. The disciples were not
prepared for such good news, even
accusing her of madness. She, un
daunted, insisted. They offered as
an explanation that perhaps it
might be Peter’s guardian angel Ln
his likeness. Peter rehearsed unto
them the Lord’s dealing with him.
2. The behavior of the soldiers
(w. 18, 19). There was great agita
tion among them as to what had be
come of Peter. This was a serious
matter, since they were responsible
tor him. Not being able to account
for Peter’s escape, Herod command
ed that they be put to death. After
this, Herod went down to Caesarea,
where he was adored as a god. Be
cause he arrogated this honor to
himself, the Lord smote him. Herod
died, but the word of the Lord
grew and multiplied.
McKinley Was Religiose
The late President McKinley’s
parents were “old-fashioned” Meth
odists, and he followed their exam
ple. They were a church-going fam
ily, attending regular Sabbath serv
ices, mid-week prayer me tings and
class meetings in their home town,
Niles, Ohio. The future Chief
Magistrate learned to pray at his
mother’s knee. He joined the church
at fourteen, at Poland, Ohio, ask
ing his friends to petition God in
his behalf, “for I believe religion
to be the best thing In all the
The Sense of Balance
The sense of balance or equi
librium is controlled by the inner
ear or labyrinth. It is the one sense
organ entirely concerned with pos
ture and equilibrium. It consists
of a series of membranous cham
bers and tubes immersed in fluid
and contained tn the bony cavity
of the inner ear. In man and other
mammals the labyrinth Is closely
joined to the cochea, the sense
organ of the ear responsive to
“There was an old woman who
lived in a shoe, and had so many
children she didn’t know what to
do.” Very likely they were other
people’s children but the perplexi
ties they caused were very real,
none the less.
We sympathize with the old
woman, for her troubles remind
us of our own as they pile about
our head in connection with the
auto contest we are waging. And
again, like the old woman, our
troubles are not of our own mak
ing for we have prepared for our
share of perplexities with the ut
One of them we propose to give
to a subscriber—and a fortunate
man or woman—he or she—who
gets this car with no investment
other than a year’s subscription to
SPOKESMAN-RECORDER GRAND S
The Minneapolis Spokesman and the St, Paul Recorder
announce the opening of a grand subscription contest in which
they will offer TWO GRAND PRIZES and several smaller
prizes, all of which promises the greatest thrill that the Twin
Cities has experienced in years.
The publishers are determined to offer to the people of
the Twin Cities, Minnesota, and surrounding states the most
incredible reward for the investment of a little time and co
operation ever before presented.
Our admitted object is to increase the circulation of what
we most sincerely believe is the best two papers this com
munity has ever boasted. We want more people to read the
views and news, and develop the plans for the economic and
social betterment of our people. In order to help the com
munity we must have the co-operation of the community. To
make that co-operation attractive we are offering these here
tofore unheard of PRIZES.
TWO MOTOR CARS TO BE GIVEN AWAY
The grand prizes are two 1935 Dodge motor ears. These
cars are in every respect the last word in motor craftsman
ship and the equals of any car on the market. Each of them
The cars are now on display in the salesrooms of the
Mair-Byrnes Motor Car Co., 2910 Lyndale Ave. So., Minne
apolis, and the L. W. Jordan Motor Co., 680 Snelling Ave.,
St. Paul, Dodge Motor dealers, and will be given as promised
to the fortunate persons who win them.
TO WHOM THE GRAND PRIZES WILL BE GIVEN
The first of these beautiful up to the minute cars, just
out of the factory, and fashioned in the most approved Dodge
manner, will be given absolutely free to one of our subscribers
who is obligated to do nothing but purchase a year’s subscrip
tion to either the St. Paul Recorder or the Minneapolis
Spokesman at a cost of only two dollars. This not only brings
to the subscriber 52 copies of one of the liveliest weeklies pub
lished anywhere, but at the same time makes him eligible as
a contender for the GRAND PRIZE.
The second of the grand prizes will be given to the so
licitor who secures the largest number of subscriptions to
either the St. Paul Recorder or the Minneapolis Spokesman, or
Friday, March 15, 1935
the best weekly in the Northwest.
Well worth the >2.00, with nothing
added to its acknowledged merit,
for everyone praises the Recorder
and the Spokesman. The other
car to be won by that solicitor who
shows the best results by the time
we have secured 2,000 subscrip
tions and to be contended for by
every solicitor who has only 50
subscriptions to his credit when
the last week of the contest ar
They belong to the people who
want to own that wonderful car
but who can’t until some solicitor
asks them to subscribe—and the
solicitors; well, they have been
frozen up for the past several
weeks and we can’t blame them
for that, for it surely has boon
cold—but now the weather is
growing more favorable, we are
looking to them to hit the ball
and start after that car in real
