since foreign shipping nrst became an important in

nearly a million tons In shipment to the total for
1928 This gave Texas fourth place among all the

the nation In total foreign commerce. All in all the
Texes ports which advanced their 1928 positions are
Port Arthur, Houston, Corpus Chrlsti, Freeport, Port

on 12th place while Beaumont. Texas City and

Mexican Crops Are Very
A Mexico City correspondent lor American news
paper* writes glowingly of growing conditions in
Mexico. First, that the Mexican government leaders
are determined to re-establish fully the foreign credit
of U'.cir nation upon the basis of the agreement re
cently reached in New York. Second, in making
larger appropriations for education, covering the
foundation of many new schools each year, extending
^ educational facilities into the rural districts and im
proving buildings and adding to teaching staffs with
a special emphasis on manual training and business
college forces. Third, a reduction in the volume and
cost of the regular arms’ of Mexico. Fourth, interest
and helpfulness on the part of the Rubio administra
tion toward the development of agriculture.
Crops in Mexico this year, according to experts,
and particularly com and beans, will likely set a high- (
er record In quantity of production and in financial j
returns to the farmers than has been the case for
30 years. To be exact the American correspondent
says, ‘ Agriculture, extended and encouraged for a

Text: Jonah 3:1-5. 10; 4:1-11
And the word of the Lord came
, unto Jonah the second time, spying,
Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great
1 city, and preach unto it the preach
i mg that I bid thee.
So Jonah arose, and went unto
, Nineveh, according to the word of
the Lord. Now Nineveh was an ex
ceeding great city of three days'
And Jonah began to enter into
the city a day s Journey, and lie
; cried, and said. Yet 40 days, and
; Nineveh shall be overthrown.
1 8o the people of Nineveh believed
God. and proclaimed a fast, and
| put on sackcloth, from the greatest
! of them even to the least of them.
• * •
I And God. saw their works, that
, they turned from their evil way:
and Gcd repented of the evil, that
I he had said that he would do unto
I them; and he did it not.
• . •
But it displeased Jonah exceed
ingly, and he was very angry.
And he prayed unto the Lord, and
said. I pray thee. O Lord, was not
this my saying, when I was vet in
my country? Therefore I fled be
fore unto Tarshlsh; for I knew that
thou art a gracious God. and merci
ful. slow to anger, and of great
kindness, and rerentest thee of the
I evil.
Therefore now. O Lord. take. I
i beseech thee, my life from me; for
i it is better for me to die than to
; live.
Then said the Lord. Docst thou
well to be angry?
So Jonah went out of the city,
artd sat on the east side of the city,
and there made him a booth, and
sat under it in the shadow, till
he might see what would become
of the city.
And the Lord God prepared a
gourd, and made it to come up over
Jonah, that it might be a shadow
over hit head, to deliver him from
his grief. So Jonah was exceeding
glad cf the gourd.
But God prepared a worm when
the morning rose the next day,
and ii smote the gourd that it
And it came to pass, when the
sun did arise, that God prepared a
vehement east wind; and the sun
beat upon the head of Jonah, that
he fainted, and wished In himself
to die. and said. It it better for me
to die than to live.
And God said to Jonah. Does*
theu well to be angry for the gourd?
And he said. I do well to be angry,
even unto death.
Thau said the Lord, Thou hast
had rif'7 on the gourd, for the
which thou hast not laboured, nei
ther madest It grow; which came
up in a night, and perished in e
And should not I spare Nineveh

Editor cf The Ccngregationalist
The general lesson title gives our
theme as "Jonah: the Narrow Na
: tionalist Rebuked."
The book of Jonah for meny
years has been so much the ground
of controversy that controverslal
i lsts have for the most part missed
its meaning. If we could disabuse
our minds of the question of liter
alness and read it as we read the
Parable of the Oood Samaritan or
the Parable of the Prodigal Son, we
should be in a way to perceive the
depth and richness of Its teaching
It is. as a matter of fact, the place
in the Old Testament where reli
gion attains it* highest point.
In the midst of narrow concep
tions that would limit the opera
tions of religion to those of one’s
own nation or of one’s own group.
w« come into this book upon the
conception of a religion thst is
broad and beautiful in Its com
A Narrow Nationalist
In the prejudice o! Jonah. In his
unwillingness to go to Nineveh to
preach his message of mercy, and
In his anger when the message at
tained its purpose and Nineveh was
not destroyed, we have set before
us in a very’ striking way the ele
ments of the narrow religion of
nationalism or the narrow nation
alism of religion. Jonah was very
much like most of us, filled with
prejudices that it took a great deal
of grace to overcome.
It seems strange that a man
would not wish to have the results
of his religious mission attained,
but what happened in Jonah's case
has been by no means an isolated
thing. How often in the community
a church has closed its doors against
the very persons whom its Gospel
was designed to reach? How often
the narrow spirit of sectarianism
has created divisions and hostilities
in the church so that men and
women of devout life i—ve been re
fused admission to church fellow
ship or have been expelled from
particular groups because their
views did not happen to accord
with the views of others?
The applications of the Book of
Jonah are many, and they can be
made in almost every community
if not in almost every life.
Over against Jonah's narrowness
is set the breadth and fullness of
God s mercy. It was a profound dis
covery of the great sopl who wrote
this book How did he come to that
conception of God? What was It
that had revealed to him such
spiritual truth as those around him
could hcrdlv appreciate? What but
the communion of truth and the
quest of a pure and sincere soul?
To know God in that wav is to
become godly. Really to believe In
His love and mercy is to become
’oring and merciful ourselves The
profession of belief In a God of
I love is a mere profession unless
that lcve has laid hold of our
lives a.id transformed them.
Tibs Bool: of Jonah lies been
r»Ued the first great book of for
eign mission*. Certainly the es
I sence of a missionary religion and
a missionary gospel is found with
in its pages. One cannot think of
Ood. who is a Ood of the who!"
world who loves all races of men
without an impulse to make him
known throughout the whole realm
where his children live. The lack
1 of faith of many in the church lr
! the worldwide work of the Oospel
, indicates that they ha\fe never come
i to perceive the truth which a book
like this was designed to declare.
The preponderance of the fish
story in many minds has prevent
I ed their seeing the real meaning
and teaching of the book. The
question in relation to that story
' is not that as to whether a miracle
could or could not happen. That
| has reallv nothing to do with th"
I orotund and deep teaching of the
book. It Is only when we spiritual
' lze the book and read it * with a
spiritual eye that we axe in the
way of discovering its truth.
A High Point of Vision
And a man who has once per
i celved its depth and its height can
never again think cf this Book of
Jonah without reverence and
thankfulness. As It marked in
■ Isarel the high point of religious
vision and magnanimity, so It marks
i still a plane to which many of us
have not yet attained
To what great heights man can
{rise, and what higher planes are
ever before him. when the measure
! which he applies to his thoughts
and aspirations ts the measure of
I the love of Ood.
For the love of God Is broader
j Than the measure of man's mind
, And the soul of the eternal
| Is most wonderfully kind.
