NOTES AND COMMENTS
Jesus and the four fishermen Peter
Andrew James and John left the ILh

city oT Capernaum which was full ol
Irhe
work was henceforth to be lathe busy
world of men They were to be mis
ionarie home missionaries at first
then foreign mtasionaries On the
Sabbath day Jesus experience in the
synagogue at Nazareth was on the pre
oidlhgSabbath What must have bean
tIrfis feeling as He entered the synagogue
avhere And taught Jesus taught IL
Ieat deal in the synagogue during its
early ministry Its service was more
Informal than that of the temple F t
Jerusalem the seat of the stiffest and
most orthodox Judaism Though Jn
struction in the law was the main pb
ject of the synagogue its services were
priestshe
Gelkle and were more like our praye
meetings than our church services
Amid the dull mechanical tendencies
thich were turning the heart of Ju < ia

been often a center of life and rallying

Taught them as having authority
This is one of the most illuminating sea
ChristsI s
fuife The meaning is not simply that
He poke as if confident that He was
rightthe scribes were doubtless confi
dent they were rightbut rather that
He did not back up His teachings by

He felt to be true in His own Foul de

should add what psychologists call dIs
eases of personality double conscious

lesson was diseased rather than pos
sessed of a foul spirit why did Jesus

else believed so too 3 The best way
to meet an Ihiane person is to meet

Ufhe kind of devil that the Jews believed

made to perform a big piece of work i
under the direction of toe human

The task successfully accomplished I
was the shifting of the draw of a rail
road bridge over the Passaic river from
one pier to another The draw weijjas I
1000 tons is 20 feet long and a doa

and lowered lly feet I
Two big scows lashed together were
used on either end of the draw On
each bad been built a heavy box filled
OnI
built to such a height that at low tide
the scows could just pass under the
fcoor girders of the draw
The scows were floated under the
draw at low tide at four oclock in
the morning At eight oclock the
tide had raised scows and the draw
till the latter was free of the pier

the draw The sand waslet out of the

GERMANY BUYING STOCK
Hen vy Iu vestme tti in American Rail
coy Shares IIcIiiK Made French
rnrclinse Handy
I German buying of American railway
shares has lately been on an exception
ally large scale Not only have the
shares of the good companies been
bought outright but there has likewise
been very large purchasing of options
as an improvement in railroad stocks
here early in the new year is looked for
lia Germany French investors have
not bought American shares They
never indeed do so But they have
bought American bonds very freely not
only here but in London There has
been some buying likewise by Holland
But just now the financial condition of
Holland is farfroin satisfactory owing
partly to the failure of the crops Jn the
Dutch East Indies partly to the very
bad harvest at home owing to the
heavy and continuous rains and partly
to lasses occasioned by previous unwise
speculation In American securities
Consequently Amsterdam has not been
able to do very much just now in Ih elf
buying line whereas Germany has
bought on a very large scale
