'March to church in March' will be the slogan." Measuring a Man's Worth ·BRASS TACKS' ON THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON By DR. ALVIN E. BELL (The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic for Feb. 27 Is Mark 5:1-17, the Golden Text being Matthew 12:12, "How much then Is a man of more value than a sheep?") ' THE PROBLEM of "demon possession" is one of the most perplexing of all New Testament problems. Was It Satan's means of Incarnating himself during tho days our Lord dwelt among men In the flesh, that he might use the same method against God that God was using against him In the Incarnation ot the word made flesh ? The demons of this lesson manifest an Insistent desiro for some material Instrumentality In which to embody themselves, if not a human body then that of swine. . A Demoniac Healed After stilling the tempest on the sea en route to the scene of thla lesson our Lord was confronted with a tempest-tossed soul of "a man of an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling* lit the tombs: and no man could any more bind him, not with a chain: because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been rent asunder by him and the fetters broken in pieces: and no man had strength, to tame him And always, night and day. In the tombs and In the mountains, he was crying out, and cutting himself with stones. And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran am worshiped him: and crying ou' with a loud voice, he solth. Wha have I to do with thce. Jcaua thou Son of the Most High God? adjure thce by God. torment me not." To which Jesus repllet with the same authority he had just showed over wind and waves "Ome forth thou unclean splrl ut of tho man." When In the calm of physical forces "he re- uked the wind, and staid unto the oa, Peace, be still," we read that the wind ceased, and there was o great calm." Likewise, he mas- crcd the tempestuous and de- tructlve spiritual forces In this man's turbulent soul and the peace and calm that followed are ilcturcd thus, "They corns to Jesus, and behold him that was possessed with demons, sitting, clothed, and In his right mind, at the feet of Jesus." Authority In the realm of disease, of the deep and of demons, was his to exercise for tho glory of God and the good of afflicted humanity. Jesus' Method All men can do with these forces of «vll Is to restrain and repress with chains, fcttero. prisons and the like. Jesus' method is to address himself to the eradication of the Indwelling evil, to cast it out and cleanse from within. Thus "he rcstoreth my soul" and -'delivers us from evil." His power, being: spiritual and divine, alone Is adequate for the eradication of any and all evils that In any wise possess and distress mankind. Pigs Vcnw Men But In the process of cleansing the man a herd of swine la lost. And their owners came to protest to Jesus for their loss. "They behold him that was possessed with demons, sitting clothed and In hla right mind," but this means nothing to them. Their Interests are confined to hogs, not men. To Uicm property rights were paramount, human rights meant nothing. Accordingly. "They began to beseech Jesus to depart from their borders," because he valued a man above swine or even all the wealth of the world. From Yesterday's Last Edition Miss MableE.

Golden text, II Corinthians 4:5 Free reading room maintained in same building where authorized Christian Science literature may be read or borrowed and is open each Monday Wednesday and Friday from 2 to 4 o'clock. Many attempts to understand the cross have been made through the ·cars, but men still ask what the cross means in'the lives that we live now." says Rev. Cadwell. If we hold that Christ was the 'substitute' 'or a sinful world, God is made to be mmortal and unjust. Men lose the responsibility ot their own acts. Nor can Christ be made a 'propitation' unless God is assumed as being an angry potentate. The cross remains n the very center of the Christian message. The apostle Paul continues o confront men by saying 'God was n Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself.' Certainly our world still needs to be reconciled with God, the 3ross as a fact of history, displays that process at -work."
