as the eye can see, are the trenches
which for so many months during
the war were occupied by the Bel

gians on the south bank and the
Germans on the north. They still
bear many marks of shells and rlfle

damp floors still convey some idta
of the hardships to which the sol
diers were subjected.

heaviest projectiles, and cool even oil

fighting was fiercest, but now serves
the more-useful purpose of a re

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
