IRELAND (Coatlnsed from rag lifts) war to rise In rebellion against th Government at Easter, 1916. Th authorities in Dublin wer warned, that a revolt wa Impending, but no attention was paid to th warning, o that when trouble broke out they were not ready. Th 1916 Rebellion I a sad story. The center of Dub lin was so badly wrecked that w were told it looked like one of the towns in France or Flanders. Since then things hav gone from bad to worse; Sinn Fein has tyran-j nixed the Island to such an extent, that in the South and West people are afraid to speak of what is going, on. Newspaper correspondents have been threatened with death If they! Inform their papers of the deeds In their neighborhood. There are thou-1 sands who would be gladly rid of. Sinn Fein, but they are terrorized.' Raids are common all over Ireland,! and in country district in the North they ar part of the Sinn Fein scheme for making Ulster submit. In isolated farmhouses men, women, and children live in constant dread, not knowing what moment irt the night they may awake to find their homes surrounded by raiders, who of ten kill the men. ) Our police force, the Royal Irish Constabulary, fs one of the finest bodies of men in the world; they have been very faithful to the Government tho the greater number are Roman Catholics. Many hav been killed in different ways, but thera were no reprisals 'until forty had been assas sinated. All these things have tend ed to great bitterness on both sides, and God only knows what th out come will be. The Sinn Feiners talk of all the outrages which have been committed by the soldiers and police. Outrages indeed! when they have murdered hundreds of innocent men and women; the reprisals in comparison have been few. An Inspector of Police was killed last February, fighting against a force of rebels. He had been com mander of a mine-sweeper in the Irish Sea during the war and had saved an American transport with 600 soldiers on board from "being sunk by a German submarine. Belfast kept very quiet up to the summer of 1920 and th annual holi days in July passed off quietly, but the following week came new from Cork of the murder of one of our bravest Ulster officers, who had been badly wounded during the war. Af ter the. war was over, ne was given i high position over tha police in Cork. He was assassinated in a pub lic room in the city because he had given . the policemen some orders which were offensive to tha Sinn Fein leaders. When his relatives went to Cork to bring his body home to the North, no man would driv them from the railway station to th Barracks, no undertaker would sup ply a coffin (the soldiers had to take one) and finally the engine driver re fused to drive the train in which tha coffin was placed. It had to be taken by automobile all the way to Dublin, and then there wa no further trouble on th Journey. Is it any wonder that when this was known, th Prot estant shipyard workers of Belfast turned the Roman Catholic men out of the shipyards and would not let them work? It was wrong, but thera were extenuating circurastan ces. Many of these men had come from the south during tha wa and taken the places of those who had gone to fight our battles. They would not vght themselves, and then they had often provoked their fellow- workers by saying, "Up the Rebels." "Up Sinn Fein." It was hard for human nature to bear, and tha re sult was bitter riots and fighting. Do you wonder that we in Ulster do not trust the Sinn Fein leaders? De Valera said, two or three years ago, that if Ulster would not yield, the province would b coerced. A he found his the at had no effect on tha northerners, he tried persuasion, also without avail. Then about two months ago one of his foremost men, in a speech at Armagh, said that if Ulster did not submit, they would use lead! Thee utterances do not make for peae, and yet we ar blamed by many for not giving in to the Sin Fein proposals. Thoy nat urally desire to rule th northern province, as it is the wealthiest! owing to its great industries, and therefore more easily taxed. All Sinn Feiners ar not murder ers, and many of them deplore tho terrible crimes which hav been com mitted. Th O'Connor Don, th rep resentative of on of our oldest Irish families, said, last year, that nltho a Sinn Fainer, ha never would hav anything to do with th party so long as such things were sanctioned. Hera in America people may sym pathise with th Idea of an Irish Re public, but in Europ it is different, and under th British Monarchy w ar aa free as th inhabitants of th United State and hav quit as good laws.

Th Shipwrecked Crew on Mellta (w. 1-10). Through th storm they lost tbelr bearings, and when they were aaf on land they learned that th island was called Mellta. 1. The hospitable reception of tho natives (v. 2). They built a fire and mntle them as comfortable aa possible from the cold and the rain. 2. Taut gathering sticks for a fir (v. 3). This I a On picture of the world'a greatest preacher and missionary not above picking up sticks for a Are. Th ability and disposition to serve natu rally in whatever way la the evidence of capacity for great commission. 3. Paul bitten by a venomous ser pent (v. 8). With the sticks that Paul gathered there was a serpent Per haps It had already curled Itself up for Its winter s'eep, but - when tha warmth of the fire aroused It It darted at Paul and fixed Its fangs upon hi band. The native expected to see him fall down dead, yet he shook it off, nothing harmed. At first the native ' concluded that he waa an escaped murderer and that this was retrtbutiv justice being meted out to him. When they aw that he was unharmed they concluded that he was a god. 4. Paul beala Publlus' father (w. 7 10). These people are now getting some return for their kindness. When this man of note was healed others came also and were healed. To thia they responded In appreciation by load ing them down with necessary sup plies. II. Paul Arrives at Rome (w. 11-16). When Paul landed at Rome Christ's charge to the disciples was fulfilled. After three months', stay at Mellta, Paul departs for Rome In the ship Al exandria, whose algn was Castor and Pollux. At Syracuse they wer de layed three days, perhaps for favora ble winds. At Puteoll he found breth ren, at whose request he tarried seven days. At Applll-Foruro and at the Three Taverns brethren from Rome met blm. From Puteoll the news went before Paul'a coming, and so Interested wer the brethren that they cam mora than forty tulle to meet him. Thi greatly encouraged him, for which he gave Ood thanka. No one, perhaps, ever enjoyed more close fellowship with God, and yet no man ever en Joyed more and derived more benefit from human fellowship than be. His readiness to preach the gospel at Rome, which he had expressed in the Epistle to the Romans, written from Corinth about three years before, waa now realised. He was treated with great leniency at Rome, for he waa allowed to hire a house there and llv alone except that the soldier that re mained his guard was constantly with him. Being chained to a soldier was rather Irksome, but yet It gave him a chance to preach to the soldiers which he could not have had any other way. lie rejoiced In whatever circumstances, Just so the gospel was preached. III. Paul's Ministry In Rome (W. 17-31). 1. His conference with the leading Jews (vv. 17-2'-'). He did not, as usual, wait for the Subbath day to speuk to the Jews, lie only allowed one day for rest. Ills object was to have a fair umlerxtandliig with them. When they came be endeavored to conciliate them. He told them that, though he caute as a prisoner, lie waa not a criminal. Though his own countrymen had so sought his llfe.'h did not couie with an accusation UKulnst them. The result of this Inter view' was that the Jews cautiously took neutral ground, but expressed a desire to hear what Paul could say In defense of a sect which was every where spoken against. The fact that this sect was spoken against Is no evi dence that It was wrong. Many times a thing may be wrong lu men's minds, hei'uuse tbelr Judgments are biased. If a thing is right lu the sight of Uod It matters not what men think uhout It. 2. Paul expounding the kingdom of (lod uml persuading concerning Jesus (vv. 131). lie pointed out a real kingdom the Messianic Kingdom with, Jesus as the King. Consecration, If you want to live In this world, doing the duty of life, knowing the blessing of It, doing your work heart ily, ami )et not uhkorhed by It, re member tliul the ue power whereby you cau so act is. that all shall be consecrated to Christ.
