M., Feb. 10. --A Federal court jury today acquitted 14 of the 25 men and women charged with trafficking in Works Progress Administration jobs in what the Government alleged was a conspiracy to aid the state Democrat faction led by U, S. Senator Dennis Chavez, The jury failed to agree as to the guilt or innocence of the remaining 11 defendants. Then Peter said, 'Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee.'"--Acts 3:S. Peter Heals a Lame Man HIGHLIGHTS OP THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON (The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic for Feb. 12 is Acts 3: 1 to 4:22, the Golden Text being Acts 3: 6, "Then Peter said, 'Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee'.") By NEWMAN CAMPBELL WE WILL start today's lesson by telling 1 the story of Jesus during His life on earth with His disciples. He was walking- with them among: the corn. The disciples'were hungry and ate of the grains of corn. But when, the Pharisees saw this they complained to Jesus that it was unlawful to plucK and eat grain on the Sabbath. You remember how very strict the Jewish law was against doing anything unnecessary on the Holy Day. But Jesus was not to be caught with such accusations. He reminded them of their church history, which told of David having eaten the shewbread in the temple on the Sabbath. Thfs was the unleavened bread which the priests placed before Jehovah in the sanctuary of the temple. David. He told them, was not blamed for doing this, neither were the priests who did the same thing 1 . "But I say unto 5'ou," He said, "that in this place is One greater than the temple" -- meaning God. This is told in the last reference given for the week's reading, Matthew 12:1-8. The rest of the lesson tells of Peter and John preaching 1 together to convert people to the religion of Jesus. The two men went to the gate called Beautiful of the temple to pray at the accustomed time Every day at this time a man was brought to the grate to beg. He always had been lame, and what he received was all he had to live upon. He held out his band to Peter and John, but Peter looked at him. Copyright, Jp3P. King saw his lameness and said to him: "SUvcr and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee." "What lie had to give was worth much more than silver and gold, for Peter took the man by his right hand and helped him to his feet, and he found that he could walk. He followed Peter and John into the temple, leaping and praising God. All the people who had seen the miracle crowded about Peter and exclaimed over it. He told them that it was faith in Jesus that had allowed him. to cure the man. But the captain, of the temple and the priest did not like this at all. They kept Peter and John until the next day and asked them, a number of questions. Peter told them it was power from the Christ whom they had crucified that permitted their acts, and the priests could not find any good reason to longer detain them so let them go. They were warned, however, that they must not preach, mention Jesus' name or perform miracles any more. It was quite useless for the priests or anyone else to forbid the disciples, especially Peter, to preach. Peter had had his moment of weakness, when, he denied Jesus. Now he was strong" and determined to do what he thought was right. And he knew it was his duty to preach the gospel as long 1 as he lived. This simple, uneducated fisherman was to become one of the truly great men of the earth, remembered and honored centimes after many richer and better schooled had been entirely forgotten. He had no money, but truly he had that which was more precious than, riches -- he could heal the sick ancl bring a message of good cheer to those who were sad and discouraged -- and the latter we also can do, to show we are trying to follow the Lord he worshipped.
