was found guilty of stealing a watch
from lone of his "spiritualistic clients”
Rev. Swetonic Layne, was sentenced
to thirty days in the house of correc
tion, here Tuesday morning by Judge!
Matthew D. Hartigan.
The charges were brought against
the minister by Miss Clara Wharton,
who told the court that she had gone
to Rev. Layne’s “Temple” at 3220 In
diana avenue, for a reading. The min
ister charged her $1.50 and as she plac
ed her coat on a chair she saw him ex
tract her watch from the pocket. When
she asked him to return it, at first he
refused, and later made improper ad
vances in return for her wa'ch. The
judge admonished the minister to
“practice what he preached” and in
order for him to know that “the way
of the transgressor is hard” imposed
the thirty days sentence upon him.

Jew has an especial grudge against the
“white races.”
He was responsible for the Negro
troops brought to the Rhine to con
taminate the pure German stock; re
ferring to the African troops of the

ing to Nordicus, are first of all to keep
Germany pure racially, second to drive
nil races o'lv r than pure Germans out
of the country by legislation against
them.

SUNDAY SCHOOL
LESSON
By R. W. Young
LESSON FOR JANUARY 29th, 1933.
JESUS AND THE SABBATH
Young People's and Adult Topic The
Lord's day Mark 2: 23;-2S; 3:1-8.
Golden Text “The sabbath was made
for man, and not man for the sabbath;
therefore the Son of man is Lord also
of the sabbath”. Mark 2:27-28.
Sunday is a day for rest, for wor
ship, and for service to God and man.
Its proper use is a matter of steward
ship the Stewardship of time. Those
who regulate their obseruance of Sun
day by a system of minute rules and
regulations make the day a burden
instead of a blessing.
Jesus spiritualized the Sabbath by
dccla: ing hat it was mad for ma»
and by declaring that he is the Lord
of (he Sabbath.
Spiritually withered hands are worse
than physically wi'hcred ones; how
ever, the Lord can heal them.
NOTES ON THE TEXT
Verse 23. The Jewish law demanded
Sabbath observance, and the Pharisees
sought to enforce it. The spirit of this
law meant nothing to these selfrighte
ous Pharisees, but they held firmly
to. the letter of it. As Christ had H s
disciples passed through the cornfield;
lie disciples began to pluck the ears
of corn.
Verse 24. The disciples had dared
o pluck the ears of corn on Ihe Sab-,
bath day and the Master had not re
proved them.
Verse 26. Jesus as usa] had an an
wer ready for His enemies. He Cites
o them the occasion wh-n David
broke the lav.’, when in his extern itv
be ate the shew-bread of the priests
n the temple. It was unlawful for
•inyOne to eat the shewbr ad, except
he priests.
Verse 26. Jesus knew about this in
id nt, concerning David, as it had
’pen recorded in history. He also knew
n wbat regard David was held by the
Pharisees
Verse 27. Man was first created and
he sabbath was given to subserve his
' iphest good.
Verse 28 This statement is a de
claration of Christ's supr macy over
he Sabbath.
Verse 1. Ano'hcr r-bbeth bad eome
nnd Jesus, as was his custom, went
■ntn the synagogue. Doubtless the af
'licted man came to the synagogue to
ask alms of those who came.
Vers? 2 The Par:sees watched Jesus
to see if he would heal on the Sab
bath day so that they could criticize
him.
Verse 3. Jesus commanded the man
to stand forth. The audience turned
their attention from Jesus to the man.
"ho stood before them.
Verse 4. Jesus turn'd His attention
to tht s-> who criticized Him. He ask
’d them a question. They certainly
could no’ deny that it was right tn
do pood on the Sabbath day.
Verse 5. Jesus was grieved for the
hardness of their heart and He looked
upon them wi'h anger. He beheld how
sinful and low a human being may fall.
Verse 6. The Pharisees joined hands
with the Herodians, so that they might
destroy Jesus, simply because they did
not except His works of mercy.
