His grave is covered by a slab Inscribed with a few lines of doggerel popularly ascribed to Shakeipeare himself. And near the christening font is a case which registers boih his birth and his baptism. Holy Trinity Church Is nestled in lime trees on the bank of the River Avon. It is built on the plan of a cross, with a nave and transepts. It is early English and Perpendicular in design and dates from the 12th century. Tradition says it was built on the site of a Saxon monastery which exls: - ed before 691. In 691 the bishop of Worcester reesiv - ed It in exchange from Ethelred, king of Mercia. . Then in the centuries to come it was to be built, and changed, and beautified. The church was greatly improved during the reign of Edward HI. John de Stratford rebuilt its famous south Sunday School Lesson, "Paul in Rome," Acts 28:16 - 31, for Sunday, Nov. 22. From the day In Jerusalem, when Paul was snatched from the clutches of a blood thirsty mob until he reached Rome, there was never a time that he was not under detention by the Roman authorities; his Christian life in service and sermon In times of peril en route .to Rome added much to his luster as a Christian witness. Paul was taken into custody at Jerusalem in the summer of 58 A. D.; reached Rome In the spring of 61 A. D. Nero was emperor and reigned till after Paul's execution In 68 A. D. V. 16. ''And when we entered into Rome, Paul was suffered to abide by himself with the soldiers that guarded him." Paul was chained to a Roman soldier night and day and used to the full the opportunity of preaching Christ to a succession of strong and able men; by these converts, Christianity was carried all over the world. V. 17. ''And it came to pass, that after three days, he called together those that were the chief of the Jews; and when they were come together, he said unto them, I brethren, though I had done nothing against the people or the customs of our fathers, yet was delivered prisoners from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans." As always, Paul began his missionary la bors with the Jews; and as he could not go to them, he sent for the lead ing men to come to him. V. 18. ''Who when they had ex amlned me, desired to set me at liberty, because there was no cause of death in me." As In the case of Christ, the Roman Judges were more Just and merciful than the Jewish Judges. V. 19. "But when the Jews spake against it, I was constrained to appeal to Caesar; not that I had ought whereof to accuse my nation." Paul's appeal to Caesar was merely to save his life and not to bring discredit up on the Jews. V. 20. "For this cause therefore did I entreat you to see and speak with me: for because of the hope of Israel I am bound with chains'" The "hope of Israel" was .the long await ed Messiah, whom Paul preached. It was because of his proclamation of the fulfillment of that hope that Paul had been thrown Into prison. V. 21. "And they said unto him, we neither received letters from Judaea concerning thee, nor did any of the brethren come hither and report or speak any harm of thee." The winter season may have prevented Paul's foes from following him to Rome; more likely they had decided that they could not convict him.. V. 22. "But we desire to hear of thee what thou thinkest; for as con cernlng this sect, it is known to us that everywhere it Is spoken against, Here is evidence of the wide spread of the Gospel largely through the work of Paul. V. 23. "And when they had ap pointed him a day, they came to him unto his lodging in great number; to whom he expounded the matter, testifying the kingdom of God and persuading them concerning Jesus, both from the law of Moses and from the prophets, from morning till evening." An all - day session was held with the greatest of human preachers. The law and the prophets Included all the Old Testament and everywhere in these books the apostle could find foregllmpses of Christ. V. 24. "And some believed the things which were spoken, and some disbelieved." As always when Christ is preached, some believed and some refused to accept the truth. To the latter Paul quoted Isaiah's stern condemnation (6:9, 10) telling them though the Jews might discard their Saviour, the Gentiles would receive him. V. 30. "And he abode two whole years In his own hired dwelling and received all that went unto him." Paul's hired dwelling was only a room which probably his friends paid for. V. 31. "Preaching the kingdom of God and teaching the things concerning the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness, none forbidding him." Besides this earnest evangelism, Paul wrote during these two years, his epistles to the Phlllpplans, Epheslans, Colossians and Philemon. 7 j - World Religious News OF WEST PIHSTON First Methodist Episcopal Church Rev.

The north aisle and the tower were built in the 13th century. The transepts, clerestory and south aisle were done about 1332. And the spire was erected in 1763 In place of a wooden one. On the wall is Shakespeare's monument. It is a bust In an arch. Experts say the monument has little merit as a work of art, and probably little as a portrait. - Close to the poet's grave are those of his wife (the celebrated Ann Hath' away), his daughter, Susanna ("witty above her sexe"), with her husband and child. American admirers erected a win' dow in the church representing "The Seven Ages of Man." In the south transept is another American window. This one has rep resentations of Amerigo Vespucci, Col umbos, William Perm, Bishop Seabu - y of Connecticut, and the Landing of the Pilgrims. A portrait of an actress as St. Helena adorns the pulpit. The actress was Helen Fauclt, whose husband. Sir Theodore Martin, erected the portrait in her memory. Six thousand classes, with a total membership of approximately one million men, are now affiliated with the National Federation of men's Bible classes. ' , A seaplane alightei recently on the Sea of Galilee, prominent scene of New Testament history. Galilee henceforth will be a regular stop on the air mill route to India. Fleming H. Re veil, founder and chairman of the board of the publishing house which bears his name, died recently in New York at the age of 83. Mr. Revell had been engaged In the publication of religious books for sixty years and was active in many lines of Christian work.

Two Sunday school sessions are held each Sunday afternoon and are attended by many people far. removed from the main highway. Jaija Sattler, member of a gypsy tribe of horse traders in northern Germany, became a Christian some s'x years ago and has since worked as an evangelist among gypsies. Last year he translated John's Gospel Into their dialect - and 562 copies of the book were distributed during the summer. The gypsies have no literature for preserving their language. Their speech has fallen into many dialects. Single handed, the Rev. William T. Morgan, of Warrior, Alabama, removed the names of 300 unemployed from the charity list. Rev. Morgan organized families into a community center and taught them agriculture, shoe repairing and other trades. CARBOVDALE "Y" DRIVE This week's work In the Carbondale Y. M. C.

ELLIS) "If suddenly out of work, what would you yourself do?" some reader asks. Well, first of all, I would sit down and take stock of my marketable wares. What have I to offer the world that the world needs, and will pay for? Wherein am I better qualified than most to serve my time? Then I would seek to merchandize these wares, with all the skill I possess. 1 I know a young architect who was reluctantly let go by his employers, under generous terms and with glowing recommendations. The one thing he could do best lay within his special field.' So he set forth to make the rounds of architects' offices, timing his approach shrewdly. Ninety - nine such calls he made in vain imagine the discouragement of that experience! but the hundredth call secured him a good position. He was rewarded for exploring to the full the possibilities of his own special market ' Returning to the reader's question, let me tell what I would do if I myself could not find a market for my special abilities. I think I would next make a circuit of my friends, and especially of acquaintances In my own field of work. I would not appear as one defeated or down - and - out. In straightforward and cheerful words, but few, I would say, "Mr. Blank, you will be interested to know that I'm one of the victims of, the depression. Now I'm looking for work. You may have contacts that will open an opportunity. Anyhow, have me in mind." Vigilantly, I would guard against becoming a bore, or an object of pity. I would carefully maintain all my normal Interests and activities, and remain as pleasant a neighbor as ever I have been. What work would come to me I cannot imagine. It might be wholly outside of the sphere I had drawn for myself; and it might even make me rich. At least, I would give myself a chance, and give the world a chance; and if I went down, I hope it would be with a smile, and with my flag of self - respect flying. METHODIST UNION C. W. Laycock, president of the Miners' Bank, Wilkesbarre, was elected president cf the Methodist Social Union of the Wyoming Valley at the annual dinner held in Central Church, Wilkesbarre, Thursday night. Other officers are: First vice president. Rev. Dr. C. H. Newlng; second vice president, John Bath; secretary - treasurer, Rev. J. Rolland Crompton. . GROUNDS FOR GRATITUDE. We approach Thanksgiving with gloom ar.d pessimism over world conditions such as business depression, unemployment, national suspicion, revolution,, political chaos;, and yet if r.here are dark shadows on one side, there are lights on the other; If there is starvation, there is plenty of food It is a question of distribution: If poverty there is sympathy and community help; If national threat there is a League of Nations. In such a time it Is wise to consider our blessings today In the light of 200 years ago. Then there were no harnessed streams, gas or electricity. Men lighted their homes with candle?, spun and made their own garments; there were no street cars, trains, automobiles. People went barefoot for lack of leather. Bleeding was used in the treatment of disease. Punishment, bylmprisonment for debt was abolished only about 80 years ago. slavery about sixty years ago. Brutality In the treatment of prisoners was almost unbelievable. There were no Sunday schools, no Y. M. C. A.'s, no organized charities. A thousand care now where one diet then. The real grounds for Thanksgiving is faith in God. This faith helps us amid chaos and depression to face the future with confidence and song. KEYNOTE OF CHRISTIANITY Thanksgiving is and ought to be the deepest note in real Christian faith and experience. If the Church and ths ministry have really a gospel to proclaim, the fact of that gospel Is the deepest occasion for thanksgiving. What Is true of an individual applies equally to the nation. The measure of a nation's bounty is not the fulness of its bins and coffers, Tkit the measure in which its bounty partakes of the purposes of a gracious God. In knowing how much God has given, we may learn as a nation how much we may give In low and service, which are the counterpart of thanks.
