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
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
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
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.

Girls! Use Lemons!
Make a Bleaching,
The juice of two fresh lemons strain
ed into a bottle containing three ounces
of orchard white makes a whole quar
ter pint of the most remarkable lemon
skin beautifier at about the cost one
must pay for a small jar of the ordi
nary cold creams. Care should be tak
en to strain the lemon juice through a
fine cloth so no lemon pulp gets in,
then this lotion will keep fresh for
months. Every woman knows that lem
on juice is used to bleach and remove
such blemishes as freckles, sallowness
and tan and is the ideal skin softener,
smoothener and beautifier.
Just try it! Get three ounces of
orchard white at any pharmacy and
two lemons from the grocer and make
up a quarter pint of this sweetly fra
grant lemon lotion and massage it daily
into the face, neck, arms and hands. It
naturally should help to soften, fresh
en, bleach and bring out the roses and
beauty of any skin. It is simply mar
velous to smoothen rough, red hands.

Swift & Company
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.
