ALONG THE YSER BEING CLEANED UP Barbed Wire and Other War Materials Are Being Reclaimed Dixmude, Belgium, Oct. 17.—Lin ing the banks of the Yser river, far as the eye can see, are the trenches which for so many months during the war were occupied by the Bel gian and German armies, the Bel gians on the south bank and the Germans on the north. They still bear many marks of shells and rlfle flre, and moldy stra wlylng on the damp floors still convey some idta of the hardships to which the sol diers were subjected. On the German side of the river Is a dugout, built to resist the heaviest projectiles, and cool even oil a hot day. It was a favorite gather ing spot for the Germans when the fighting was fiercest, but now serves the more-useful purpose of a re frigerator.

Popples Over Graves Behind the dugout, the bodies of three soldiers—two Belgians and one German—were buried on the bank of a tiny pond, made by bursting shells. Little crosses mark the restihg places and over them popples nod. Along the Yser one may plainly see the effects of the hard-fought struggle. Here and there the top of a dugout has been crushed tn, and further along the buckboards from an abandoned trench may be seen sticking through the mud. With in sight of the bridge, the muzzle of a field piece, rusted and useless, points to the sky. Debris Reclaimed Much of the debris of the battle field has already been collected. Miles upon miles of barbed wire have been reclaimed from the entangle ments, German and Allied, which stretched in front of the lines but at some points along the river bank the old entanglements still remain, rusted and twisted on stakes which are fast falling into the ground. There are great piles of reeled wire which has not been unwound since it left the wire mills, while the mili tary telephone systems are still stretched upon short stakes. The people of Dixmude, like the people of every other destroyed Belgian town, are gradually return ing to the ruins of their homes. The help being given them by the gov ernment is giving them heart and strength to begin life over again.

NEW MEMORIES OF OLD CAPERNAUM The International Sunday School Lesson For October 10 Is "Jesus In \ Peter's Home" —1:29-39 By WILLIAM T. ELLIS I have been to Capernaum. My feet have stood on the very stones of the porch of the synagogue where Jesus himself often stood and looked out across the lake he loved. Now that I take up the regular Sunday school lesson which opens at this same synagogue—doubtless the one given to the Jews by the Roman centurion —and continues in the cHy of Capernaum, and proceeds to the dwelling upon the setting of the story, which makes it all so real to me. At Tiberian, late one afternoon this summer, I had hired a boat and three men to take us to Copernauni, expecting to be back tn the hotel by dark, for a belated dinner. Instead, we had contrary weather, and did not reach the ruins of Capernaum until nine o'clock, long after the stars were out and the shores were shadows—except for the stubble fire that was sweeping over the hillside site of old Bethsadia, evidentaliy flaring up Into a great blaze as it reached the wheat stacks. The flames crawled like a giant red worm over the night-enshrouded hills. From the lake it was a spectacular sight, and gave a wild touch to the silence and gloom of the scenery of the night. Barking Dogs Amid City's Ruins i When at length our boat was I beached, amid the trees at the wa ! ter's edge, the leading boatman ! helped ashore his two passengers, 'my son and myself. He knew the 1 way to the gate of the wall which | surrounds the house and working | of the Austrian Franciscan archae ologists; and his knocking at the gate brought no response for a long I time, except the fierce barkings of | big dogs. At length a servant was ! aroused and responded with alarm ' ed questionings concerning this un timely disturbance. Travelers do 1 not commonly journey by night in ! the East; and there was no occasion i that could be conjectured for visit ■ ors at such an hour to the house of ! the single old monk who represents i the expedition. The word "Americans" seemed to : resolve doubts, for the strange ways of Americans abroad are as well known as their friendliness. The old monk himself had seen our boat battling with the winds in the early ! evening, and he quickly surmised the facts —and a few days later told the King-Crane Commission how two Americans had come in upon him at night, and had seen the ruins by starlight and lanternlight. The old man was really glad to ! see us. It pleased him that any ; body should think enough of his dear ruins to outfight the storm, in j stead of turning back to Tiberias. ]He pressed us to spend the nignt ) with him, but, learning that this ' was impracticable, he cheerfully ! went with us over the wonderful ' ruins of the marble synagogue, with I the carvings still almost as fresh as i when the eyes of Jesus and his | friends had looked upon them. j The entire plan of the synagogue I has been made clear by the archae ologists' spade, and one my see the I pillars and their places; the aisles, the walls and the readers' platform. I There are the very stones, with 1 their beautifully carved pome granates and olives and stars of David, which once heard the tender tones of the voice of Jesus. Ah, If they could but echo back a single word of that Teacher who spoke as never man spoke before. A Porch anil Its Memories ! There are only a few spots In the • Holy Land, where, despite the accu | mulations of the centuries, one may ! say with certainty, "Jesus walked j here; His feet pressed these very , stones." Old Jerusalem, for in -1 stance, lies many feet below the HXRRISBDRG TELEGR3LFH present surface of the city; and so also do Bethany and the Mt. of Olives But there, alone of all the Bake of Galilee region where Jesus lived and walked and taught, is the one place where the traveler can as suredly say: "I am standing In the footsteps of the Savior." This porch of the old synagogue as is it was when built. Upon it the Master walked again and again; and even as I watched the starlit, wind-whipped waters of Galilee from this vantage point, so he used gaze upon the lake where his friends had toiled for a livelihood, and where he had companioned with them, in storm and in calm, as one strong man with others The Man of Galilee seemed very near, as we stood on the portal of this familiar place of worship in His own home city Thoughts of the church-going | habits of Jesus; of His quiet accept ance of the forms of worship of' his day; imperfect though He knew | them to be; of his own musings as' He reflected upon the inability of I His hearers to grasp the fuller mean ings of the words He itad uttered when standing by these pillars; of His interest in the fellow-worship pers who jostled Him upon this very porch; and of His compassionate in terest in all the thronging, -busy, cosmopolitan city spread out before Him, filled my mind as I stood in the moonlight on the marble porch of the Capernaum synagogue, one of the most precious treasures that archaeology has given the world. A Motlier-ln- law Story It was from this portico that Jesus and His four disciples descended that Spring Sabbath long ago, when He become the guest of Peter, some where near by. There he found His friend's mother-in-law ill, and He healed her; for it was instinctivo, and a life passion, with Jesus to help everybody whom He touched. There are two mother-in-law stor ies in the Bible that naturally spring to mind, and both are beau tiful; and truer to universal condi tions than the miserable mothev-in law jokes that unoriginal humorists keep in currency to-day. One is the idyllic story of Naomi and Ruth: the other is the incident which opens the present lesson. Evidently there was harmony and helpfulness in Peter's home, and the illness of his wife's mother was a calamity to the household. It was the mother in-law, healed by the compassionate touch of Jesus, who "ministered un to them," in that godly fellowship of noble women who have been im mortalized as the friends and help ers of the Savior. Jesus seemed purposely to set his seal upon the sacredness of family life, and of women's part therein. A Sunset Scene Water and hills assured lovely sun sets; and more than once 1 have witnessed them from the Bake of Galilee. In a few graphic words, Mark tells how Peter's humble home was thronged at sunset with the sick and afflicted. In every community there may always be gathered a com pany of suffering. If we keep ou* eyes open to this truth, we shall ! touch life more softly and sympa thetically, He who has not ex perienced or visualized the daily scene of the crowded waiting rooms of city physicians is unaware of a side of life which must be under stood by all who would know this world in reality. Healthy youth scarcely comprehends the signifi cance of the large part that healing played in the earthly ministry of our Lord. Our own times, too, are sick. In spirit and in body they are sore and distressed. Every sensitive soul is perplexed and wondering about it all. What may we say to this suf fering era qf ours? Sureiy the an swer is—and I who write abhor cant and stereotyped phraseology that the world, with all its present pain and fever, should be brought to the presence of Jesus, that He may heal it. The touch of Christ is the su preme need of our time. The Two-Slded Healer Symmetry is strength. Most of us are lop-sided. We have developed one phrase of our nature at the ex pense of others. We are alive to business and pleasure, but dead to idealism and aestheticism. Or we have cultivated force and forgotten tenderness. We may be righteous but we are not merciful. Or we are dreamers, but not doers. Character four-square is not common. In the present lesson we have two charac teristics of our Lord; He was a mys tic, and yet He was also an adven turer. . After the nerve-sapping Sabbath in Peter's home, when he had spent himself so lavishly for all comers, the Healer might reasonably be ex- I pected to sleep late the next morn ing. On the contrary, "rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place! and there prayed." There we have the mystical side of Jesus. He deemed communion with God more vital than rest or work: the harder He toiled, the more He prayed. So His spirit fled from the multitude into the desert place, probably east of the lake; and there, to the howl 3 of the late-prowling jackals and the first chirp of the awakening birds, He laid hold upon His Heavenly Father for strength. This trysting place with God was known to the disciples, indicating that retreat for prayer was habitual with the Master; and they, over impressed with the popularity that Ijad come to Jesus, found Him and cried judilantly: "All men are seek ing thee." To them it was an ex citing fact that their Leader had "made a hit" in Capernaum. Lo, the news affected him not at all as they expected; for His pioneer spirit was not content to settle down und sip the sweets of success. So he met their clamors for a return to Capernamu by the announcement that He was going to tour Galilee! He was the adventurer, the man of outreach and activity. The religions beyond ever beckoned Him; the "other sheep" who needed shepherd ing were ever before His vision. What an insatible soul was the Savior! RIGHT THERE WITH ADVICE "Heels together! Stand up straight and button that blouse! Don't you know enough to salute an officer yet?" demanded the C. O. of the new sentry. "Nope. Just got here yesterday and ain't much acquainted yet." "Well." replied the C. 0., taken aback, "I am the colonel.of the regi ment and the commanding officer of this post." "Good job, old man. Hang on to It." replied the rookie. —American Legion Weekly.
