In this discourse Dr. Taim. 30 describes
the Gospel uet and huw it is to (
be repaired after being damaged; ,
text, Matthew 4. 21, "James, the sou of
Zebedee, and Jehu, bis brother, in a
tehlp with Zebedee, their father, meud- ]
ing- their uet?." I
"I go a-fishingl" cried Simon I'cter
to his oeinrades. and the moat of the
Spostles had bands hard from fishing
tackie. The fisheries of tbc world have
lways attracted attention. In the
third century the queen of Egypt bad
tor pin money $470.000. received frcin
the fisheries of Lake Moeris And. if
the time should ever come when the
Immensity of tho world's population
could iiOt be fed by the vegetables and
meats of the laud, tho sea has an
amount of animal lLf? vli.it would feed
nil the population of the earth end futtec
them with u fo il that by its phosphorus
would tuake a generation
brain/ and intellectual beyond nnything'
that the world lies ever imas;lned.
My text takes us among the G
lean fishermen. One day Walter Scott.
' while hunting in an obi drawer, found
mocg tome old fishing tackle the '
