In his baptism we see the symbolic act of Jesus dedicating himself to the work of redemption through the cross, or the act of consecration on his part to the work of saving the world through his death and resurrection. His baptism did not mean his obedience to the law of God, but his entrance upon the sacrificial work which on the cross of Calvary made a real foundation for full righteousness. 2. His anointing (r. 22). As he thus dedicated himself to the task of bringing In a righteousness, he was anointed with the Holy Spirit 3. The heavenly recognition (v. 22). This act of devotion to the divine will was attended by the declaration of divine approval, "Thou art my beloved Son; In thee I am well pleased." II. Jesus' First Conflict With the Devil (Luke 4:1-13). Jesus went from the place of anointing and heavenly recognition as the Son of God to meet and to spoil the arch enemy (Heb. 2:14). Instead of the temptation, therefore, being a preparation for his messianic work, it was a demonstration of the inseparableness of the divine and human natures in the incarnation. It is to be noted that the Holy Spirit, not Satan, led Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted. -place (v. 1). It was In the wilderness of Judea. The first man, Adam, was tempted in a garden, with the most pleasant surroundings. The second man, Jesus Christ, was tempted in a barren wilderness, surrounded by wild beasts (Mark 1:13). 2. The method (vv. 2-12). Christ as the world's Redeemer sustanied a threefold relationship: the Son of man, the Messiah, and the Son of God. Therefore, Satan made each one a ground of attack. u. As Son of man (vv. 2-4). Satan made his first assault upon Jesus as a man by appealing to the Instinct of hunger. Satan urged him to use | his divine power to convert a stone Into bread. Hunger Is natural and sinless. Real human life experiences hunger. The appetite of hunger was normal and right. Tb*> temptation was to satisfy a rlgat hunger In a wronz way. To bare yielded in this case, though his hunger was desperate, would have been to renounce the buinan limitations which he bad taken for our sins. To i use divine potver to satisfy human j needs would have been to fail asj j Savior atd Mediator. To do right I in a wrong way is to fail. I b. As Mes.siab (vv. 5-8). Here the j temptatiorj was to grasp his rightful I dominion by false lueans. The devil I offered to surreijiler unto him the world, if be would adopt his method—worship bita. Tbe force of this temptation wag iu the fact that the kingdoms of itie world are Christ's by God's covenant with him, God's method by which Jesus was to possess the wor!d wag the sacrificial death on tbe cross. The temptation which Baiau is placing upon the ehurch today is to get poss«sslon of tbe world by other means than that of the cross. \Ve fall into the hands of the leicpter today when we resort to worldly means of doing the Lord's work. To bid for power by using worldly means Is to follow after the example of Satan, ft PRESIDENT PACK OF THE AMERICAN TREE ASSOCIATION POINTS A MORAL By ELMO SCOTT WATSON HIS year marks the sixtieth anniversary of an important event in the economic history of our nation. For 60 years ago (In 187G) the first warning against depleting one of our great natural resources and the first admonition to "Plant trees'." as a means of offsetting the disastrous results of such depletion was uttered. Tbe man who did that was THERE-HAVE fOU TRIED WRlSLEf'S LATEW? So your daughter is musical?" "Yes." "Is she gobag in for classical work?" "No. Jazziest" not Beading Down "Goodness! How fat Betty ig eet- "That'B because she daily doesn't." WRIGLEY It U written PERFECT Franklin B. Hough, "the first forest agent of the United States," and he is being honored this year in a particularly appropriate manner. Charles Lathrop Pack, president of the American Tree association and one of the leading apostles of scientific forestry in this country, has begun the distribution of the forty-third edition of his famous "Forestry Primer" and this edition is dedicated to Hough. This edition will make 4,300,000 copies of the booklet which Mr. Pack has given to schools and colleges since the first edition was printed in January, 1926. Although Hough's fame as the "first forest agent" will be thus broadcast throughout the United States, it is a curious fact that he Is already better known for some of his other activities than he is for his work in behalf of forestry. Look in almost any cyclopedia of biography and you will find him listed as an "author and historian" with more emphasis laid iii/un nw prolific writings than upon his work as a preacher of the doctrine of "Plant trees!" Franklin Benjamin Hough (one wonders If he were named for the Immortal Ben Franklin and, if so, why the two given names were thus transposed!) was born In Martinsburgh, N. Y., July 20, 1822, the son of Dr. Horatio Hough, who had emigrated from Southwick, Mass., in 1797, and was the first physician In Lewis county, New York. After his graduation from Union college in 1843, young Hough prepared to follow in his father's footsteps by entering Cleveland Medical college, from which he was graduated five years later. Even during his college career scientific Investigation outside his chosen field of medicine Interested him and In 1847 he published his first wor k—"A Catalogue of Plants Growing Without Cultivation in Lewis County, New York." Beginning the practice of meulolne at Somer- vllle, N. Y, In 1852, he later removed to Albany and during a residence of eight years there he was an earnest and Indefatigable student of history and an authority on antiquities, statistics and various branches of science. Ills published writings during this period Included histories r»f St. Lawrence, Franklin, Jefferson and Lewis counties, New York, "Papers {minting to t.)i* Island of Nantuclcet," "Proclamations for Thanhs- giving by the Continental Congress, Washington, and Others, With an Historical Introduction," "Munsell's Guide to tho Hudson Hlver," "t'npers Concerning the Attack Upon llatflpkl nricl Deerfield by a Party of Indians From Canada, September 19, 1077," "Hosulls of n Scries of Meteorological Observations, Mnrte In Obedience to the Instructions of tho IloKontB of HIB University at Sundry Acadomles In tbo Ktate of Now York From 1826 to 1850," nnd "Tho Comprehensive Farm Record; With Directions for Its Use." He also edited "Diary of tlio Hlege of Detroit In the War With Pontlac" and "A Narrative of the Principal Events of the Hlego, by Major Hubert Rogers." During tbe Civil war HotiBh served us n surgeon with the Union rirmy for n tlmo, then returned to New York to make his homo In I-ow- vllle, where he continued his scientific and literary work. During the nest live years his publications Included "An Annotated Translation of Bauden's 'Guerre do Urluieo,'" "Proceedings of the Commissioners of Indian Attain) for tlio Ex- tinguishment of Indian Titles In thu Htulo of Now York," "History of Duryou's Ilrlgiulo During tho partment of agriculture was created, Hough was appointed as Its chief and he served in that capacity from 1876 to 1883. Meanwhile certain events had been taking place which should have been a warning to the whole nation but which were, for the most part, disregarded. In the West terrible forest fires had been raging almost every summer but little attention was paid in the East to the reports of these conflagrations. Now and then Hough and other far-seeing men declared that our future timber supply was In danger unless steps were taken to replace the trees destroyed by these fires or by the lumbering methods then in vogue. But America, evidently believing that our forests, like some of our other natural resources, were Inexhaustible, laughed at these "cranks" and went merrily on its wasteful way. Strangely enough the great Chicago fire of 1871 helped turn the thought of the nation to forest resources. That was the summer of one of the greatest drouths in the history of the country. From July 8 to October 9, with the exception of two small showers in September, no rain fell in the major portion of the Middle West Forest fires swept over a great part of. northern Michigan and Wisconsin and raged unhindered through the country where streams, ponds and marsh lands had dried up. The East heard again about forest fires but it didn't worry much about them. Why wonder about a few thousand trees, anyway? Ships were to be built of iron and buildings of brick, and coal was tbr.'fuel of the future, they said. Then in October, 1871, the whole problem of drouth and fire was dramatized in the great tragedy In Chicago and it helped turn the national consciousness to our future timber supply. The direct result was that congress appropriated 52,000 and employed Hough to Investigate timber conditions in the United States. Out of his report, sent to congress by President R. B. Hayes, grew a national forestry policy which, although slow in developing, has made constant progress during the last CO years. The successive steps In that development have been as follows : 1866—Act creating division of forestry in Department of Agriculture, June 30. 1891—President authorized to establish forest reserves March 3, Yellowstone Park Tlmberland reserve proclaimed by President Harrison on March 80.

Among his later publications we« "Tho Elements of Forestry: Information C<* corning the Planting and Care of Forest Trm' nnd "Report on Forestry," both published in 1SS t On May 15, 1885, Gov. David B. Hill of Ne» York signed the bill creating a forest comml* iv slon in New York. Hough had been (ofluential in ;; bringing that about but he did not live to se the full fruition of his efforts. He died three 8 weeks later— on June 6, 18S5. Last year in con- 1 nectlon with the celebration of 50 years of for- 1 estry in the Empire state his home at Lowville $ was dedicated to his work. § This year his service to the cause of forestry, 1 through the report which he made 60 years ago, I is to be commemorated throughout the United 'f States.
