i life all about Him. They show
identification with mankind to be
real and complete experience. They
Uicate that He became subject not
inly to the law in the technical sense
attached to the term among the Jews,
fnor merely fo the moral law as the
J expression of the will of His Father,
Fbut to the laws of nature as well. "It
behooved Him," as the author of the
Hebrews puts it, "In all things to be
made like unto His brethren."
H'stcrical and literary investiga
tions of the lust few years have great
ly enlarged the knowledge of men re
garding the preparation of the world
for Christ They have brought into
view a vast array of facts of exactly
the same type and meaning as the gos
pel narrative of the birth of John the
I baptist and his ministry. John was a
forerunner of Jesus. The language to
be used by Jesus had been introduced
among the Jews, the political condi
tions to confront him and constitute a
part of His problem had been molded
the world of thought to serve as the
vehicle and auxiliary of His ideas had
grown up in the years immediately
preceding His coming, the knowledge
of these matters helps men today to
i affiliate Jesus with His environment

The gospel of Mary begins with a

not lie In the facts he used as illustra

illustrated, namely, the fatherly love
and care of God.
Then Jesus ministered to the souls
of men. Ha preached the gospel of the
kingdom. He persuaded men to accept
God as their heavenly fatherly ruler
and live in peace with their fellowmcn

A good New Year's resolution is to
road the Dally Public Ledger every
ovening before retiring. It's not the
biggest nowspaper but It- Is the best
local home-towu paper. Any local
news ot general Importance will be
found in its columns.
The Public Ledger donates Its space
each Friday to the publication of the
church announcements. If the publish
ers of this paper are liberal enough to
donate this space, the pastors ot the
various churches, should be consid
erate enough to have their notices in
this office on time. In the future only
such notices as arc in this office by
noon Friday will be published. This is
final. Notices reaching here after Fri

before other bars are always anxious
to get into trial and get their cases
finally disposed of but they have cer
tainly been acting altogether different
at their home bar for the past two or
three terms of Circuit Court There
have been fewer cases tried in the local
court during the past two years than
in any other court in this section. Many
of the cases have been compromised.
It is true, but te most of them went
over for continuance.
