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.

TOUNQ PEOPLB AND ADULT TOPIC
-f-paul'a Ministry In Rome. v
I. 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,
