endorse Doau's Kiduey Pills. My HUI
girl was troubled trow birth by kidney
aud bladder weakness. I took her to
doctors and gave her medicine, but she
grew worse. She could not control the
kidney secretions at night. When 1
heard about Doau's Kidney Pills, I got
some at ii. H. Worrell's Drug Store and
in a few weeks they bad brought some
benefit. Now the child is able to sleep
well and her trouble is going away
qulckly. Doau's Kidney Pills did the
work after other medicines failed.''

Notice he assures them first who it ls

the tones of his familia^ vol?e and
then they were ready for his words
of confidence, "be not afraid." So Ood
speaks to us In the hour of out
darkest trial, saying "Lo, I am with
you always;"?"bo not afraid."
From the parallel account by Mat?
thew (Matthew 14: 28-31) we read of
Peter's attempt to walk upon the wa?
ter. His rash and lil considered teat
cf the reality of Jesus' presence. Then
we see him as he too compares him?
self with the angry storm and taking
his eyes off of Jesus begins to sink.
Peter's sharp, piercing cry: his clear,
definite, appeal is at once answered
and Jesus leads him safely back into
How- different is the picture once
Jesus was in the boat, and how soon
they naehed the goal toward which
they had been struggling, (John 6:19,
21). If any one is at sea. If any one
is fruitlessly toiling against wind and
wave, only let them take Jesus on
board and soon they will reach a
j safe landing place.
The disciples vero amazed and
! their hearts were hardened (vv. 51,
I 52), and this even after the creative
miracle of feeding the five thousand?
why so? It is evident that even
\ those nearest to him did not appre
hend the true meaning of this Dirac]*,
on the contrary their hearts were har?
dened, e. g.. blind.
The real interpretation of Christ's
! miracles is not that we are to be
; amazed at the material manifestation
I but that we are to see the spiritual
I lesson and application
It was a different reception Jesus
received when they reached Genne
saret (vv. 53-56). There he is recog
; nized at once. There they Sock to
him with their sick ones and Mark
with a few deft strokes shows us the
picture of a vast deal of healing. Non*
ls disappointed, for we read that as
ninny as touched him were mada

today to a single person, nor limited
to a peculiar placj or ?brine*.
In this lesson we see Jesus direct
lng his disciples. We see the disciples'
obeying that direction even though it
led them Into contrary winds. Wm
i see him as he walks into them bring?
ing relief, superior to boisterous wind
, and wave. His presence brought
I peace as it always does - to storm
tossed humanity. His assurance is
that of his own presence (Matt
