SELLERS, Aoking Director ot the Sunday School Course of the Moody Bible Institute, Chicago.) (Copyright. 1918, Western Newspaper Union.) LESSON FOR MARCH 17 JESUS SENDING FORTH THE TWELVE. (May be used with missionary appli cation.) LESSON TEXT—Mark 6:1-31. GOLDEN TEXT—Freely ye have re ceived. freely give.—Matt. 10:8. ADDITIONAL MATERIAL FOR TEACHERS—Romans 10:13-15 Isa. 40:3-9 Matt. 2S: 16-20 Acts 1:6-8 2:1-4: 16:9-10. PRIMARY TOPIC—Jesus feeding the hungry. MEMORY VERSE—Give ye them to eat. Mark 6:37. JUNIOR MEMORY VERSE-Isa. 62:7. INTERMEDIATE TOPIC-Messengers of Christ. JUNIOR AND ADULT TOPIC—The power of the Gospel of Christ. The time of this lesson was autumn, A. D. 28 the location Galilee. I. Marvelous Unbelief, (vv. l:l-6a). Jesus is rejected the second time at Nazareth. He entered into the syna gogue on the Sabbath, as was his cus tom, and the people were astonished at his doctrine. His application of the scripture was similar to that of his first rejection. The significance of this visit is found in verses 5 and 6 —the limitation of the mighty Christ through unbelief by those who knew him best. II. The Mission of the Twelve, (vv. 6a-16). From the parallel account we find why Jesus sent forth these disci ples (Matt. 9:36)—because the peo ple were scattered as sheep without a shepherd. In the tenth chapter of Matthew we find the names of those whom he sent out (vv. 2-5)), the fifth verse of which designates that only Jews were included in this mission. We need to remember that these dis ciples were sent out before his cruci fixion. Their pilgrim character Is shown in Mark 6:9, and the solemn manner of their dealing with those who reject them is indicated in verse eleven. They were being sent forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. They were to be delivered up to the council and haled before the rulers of the synagogues, but with them was to go an enabling power (Matt. 10:20). Meeting persecution was to be a part of their program. They anticipate the persecution with which Christ is iden tified, for he exhorts them (Matt. 10:28-31), to be of courage and to fear not, for are they not "of more value than the sparrows?" Their going forth was to bring divisions (Malt. 10:34), but also a reward to those who re ceived them aright—a righteous man's reward. (Matt. 10:40-42.) Notice their obedience (Mark 6:12-13), and their achievements as the visible evi dence of the power they had received. III. Malignant Hate. (vv. 14-29). Mark gives us the most complete ac count of the death of John the Baptist. It is not a lesson that we need to em phasize to the scholars of the younger grades, but It has a deep significance to those of the more advanced depart ments of the Sunday school and if we are going to get the scope of the whole Epistle of Mark, it must be con sidered. Herod thought he had tri umphed, but he was defeated. Thus it Is with the sinner always—he over shoots the mark. Germany's hatred of England stands in the way of its com plete domination of Europe, and it was Germany's pride which caused It to make those military blunders which prevented it from capturing Paris. So It is with Satan and the sinner Just when the victory seems to be complete God intervenes. "They that be for us are more than they that are against us." The counteracting power of God offsets the devil's hatred so that we are made "more than conquerors through him that loved us." It was because Jesus sent forth these disciples that they were called apostles, literally "sent ones." They had been called unto him (Mark 6:7), then sent forth, not singly, but by twos, so today the lonely servant has with him the Holy Spirit. Our mes sage is "peace," but we must have peace ourselves if we are to impart It to others. If punishment is to be measured by the amount of light one sins against, the heaviest, punishment must rest upon those in America and England who know the gospel but reject it. It is evident that the disciples re ceived great power (vv. 12,13) as sug gested by their return (v. 30). They acted wisely In telling Jesus "all things," both what they had done and taught. Although sent forth, they were not to spend time in visiting and en tertaining, nor in seeking the hospital ity of the rich. They were to be wholly dependent upon God, taking nothing with them in their journey Ings, but staff and sandals, betokening their pilgrim character. The gospel of Mark gives us the picture of the ideal servant. There are more temptations to break the commandments than there are en couragements to keep them. Resolve to help break the temptations and to help make the encouragements. In material things it's not what we want but what we get that counts. In spiritual, It's not what we claim but what we've got. Faith is the practical exercise of the spiritual eyes. Spirit is the only true substance. The spiritual body la the real man.—Henrjr Wood.

Swift & Company Publicity At a recent hearing of the Federal Trade Commission there was introduced correspondence taken from the private files of Swift & Company,which showed that the Company had been con sidering for some time an educational advertising campaign. The need for this publicity has been apparent to us for sev eral years. The gross misrepresentation to which we have recently been subjected has convinced us that we should no longer delay in putting before the public the basic facts of our business, 'relying on the fair-mindedness of the American people. The feeling against the American packer is based largely on the belief that the income and well-beirig of the producer and consumer are adversely affected by the packers' operations, resulting in unreasonably large profits. Swift & Company's net profit is reasonable, and represents an insignificant factor in the cost of living. For the fiscal year 1917 the total sales and net profit of Swift & Company were as follows: This is equivalent to a $3,465. profit on a business of $87,500. pound on dressed beef. If Swift & Company had made no profit at all, the cattle raiser would have received only one-eighth of a cent per pound more for his cattle, or the consumer would have saved only one-quarter of a Swift & Company, U.
