Lesson Textt Mark 8:27-37.
Six months before his crucifixion,
Jesus led his disciples once again
away from the crowd and, anxitras to
ascertain the fruit of his association
-with them, asked, as he walked
alonor the roadside: "Who do men
say that I am?" Peter, the impul
sive leader of the group, made his
great confession of faith, "Thou art
"It was a divine revelation to
Peter in a flash of intution, which
drew into itself the best thoughts,
feelings and expressions of the past
two years," says William A. Grist.
"The lowly origin of the Carpenter,
the familiarity of daily intercourse,
the shocks of disapproval, the delay
of hopes making the heart sick, the
haughty repudiation of Jesus by the
authorized teachers of Israel, and the
ebbing tide of his popularity in Gali
lee, might have almost justified a
fisherman's inability to decide this
momentous question. But, in spite of
all doubts and dreadful uncertainties,
there was that in Simon's soul which
leapt up in answer to the Master"!
word wholeheartedness and a sud
den sense of the greatness of the
Reality in Jesus: impelled by this
spirit, he trampled down all doubts,
and burst out in enthusiastic confes
. sion of faith and loyalty."
JSSollowing Peter's outspoken recog-
iiition of his divinity, Jesus then be-
gan to explain to his disciples how it
would be necessary for him to die,
-also prophesying his resurrection
three days afterwards. This pro
phecy of so shameful a death was
"("beyond the understanding of the dis
ciples. Peter, again the impulsive
sndkesman, probably encouraged to
'speak by the recognition given his
confession of faith, took Jesus aside
and boldly rebuked him. Without
realizing it, Peter was bringing back

Jesus said that he must be crucified.
Of course, I know that the situation
of Washington was not at all paral

ing of ideals of leadership. The Jews
thought of the Messiah as acting
much like any national leader. It
was strange, strange doctrine w
hear that the Messiah must suffer,
and the disciples were horrinea Dy

then from this scene at Laesarea
Philippi that the instinctive revulsion
against the new and strange may be

fears the truth."
VnlinwW un his rebuke of Peter,
Jesus told his disciples the demands
of discipleship. He laid aown me
doctrine of self-denial, and following
his example by bearing tne cross.
Then, the paradoxical observation
wtwutncnrer would save his life
would lose it, whereas whosoever
should lose hirlife "for my sake and
the gospels" would save it. Then,
Jesus asked the question which has
come down the various centuries,
presenting for each individual per
son the moBt striking and important
interrogation any will ever be called
upon to answer. "For what doth it
profit a man, to gain the whole
world, and forfeit his life? ror
what should a man give in excnange
for his life?"
"Men are very prone in these days
to say it does not matter very much
what views we hold about Jesus, as
long as we accept his teaching and
obey it," says J. D. Jones. "And

the Person of Christ as metaphysical
and theological subtleties which are
THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT
of no importance for dally lifeThat
is not what Jesus himself thought
He attached the moat tremendous
importance to the . account people
gave of him;' the whole future of the
gospel depended in some vital way
upon what men thought of him. He
regarded the future' pf Christianity
as bound up 7 with right under
standing of his Person. If there la
one thing the New Testament makes
abundantly dear it is this that the
Christian gospel is- not a teaching
merely or af philosophy merely; or a
morality merely; it is, as Dr, Van
Dyke says, the gospel of a Person.
It centers not simply in what Jesus

By Her prandothr
On March 2nd, 1938, at 9:45 a. m.,
the death angel bore the sweet spirit
of Clarissa to the arms of her Savior.
Surely the kinrf of shadows loves a
shining mark. -r She died la the Albe
marle Hospital after an illness of 32
days. She was taken; tick at school
on Friday, returning; home on the
school bus that afternoon She be
came violently ill the" doctor was
called and she was taken to the hos
pital at 10 o'clock with an emergency
case of appendicitis, was immediate
ly operated on and stood the opera
tion fine, but later on complications
set in which resulted i in, her. death.
She was 16 years, 9 months and 21
days 'old. She was a beautiful ex
ample of patience, never complained
about anything. She was a member
of the Senior Class of the. Perquim
ans County High School ; and would
have graduated on May the 4tii of
this year. Her diploma had been or
dered when, she was taken ill. She
naa a severe case or measles in Jan
uary and was back in school only one
week to the very dayvef her Illness.
She war a sweet character and had
a host of friends. Her-mother died
when she was only 8 weeks old and
her grandparents on her father's
side took her into their hearts and
home. , She was the Joy and sun
shine of the home, for nearly 17
years. She was a devoted child and
so tenderly and sweetly cared for her
aged, invalid grandinother. . Her
grandfather was her playmate' and
he so keenly misses her caresses and
her playfulness. ' A place is vacant
in the home none other can fill a
voice we loved is so painfully, still.
She was the pet of the home, v She
was efficient and capable. She could
prepare a meal good enough to sat
isfy . any appetite. She enjoyed com
pany and entertaining ' them. The
home is ao sad and lonely without
her cheery presence. ", 1 ' , i i

well understand why ' her sweet life
was taken so suddenly from us until
then well watch and wait when we
shall greet - her in -hat beautiful
White City above. We seem to hear
her say, "I am so glad you have
come" as she told her grandmother
one day when she visited her in the
hospital. Her preparation was made
for Eternity as she testified during
her illness. We know where to find
her. Death cannot divide.
We fancy only a thin veil inter
venes between us and our loved ones,
they are still near us though unseen
by our mortal eyes. Oft' times we
feel their presence as they sweetly
whisper endearing words in our ears.
Her funeral was held by ministers
of the Friends at Up River Church
on March 3rd, 1938.
The Senior Class girls of Perquim
ans High School were flower bearers.
The floral offerings ' were numerous j
and most beautiful. "Some Day
Well Understand" was sung by her
Sunday School Class, also a solo by
Mr. Anderson, of Hertford, "Crossing
the Bar." Services were concluded
at the grave by her great uncle, J.
Marvin Jolliff, of the Methodist N.
C. Conference. As she was placed in
her grave "Christian Goodnight" was

We know the zephyrs of Heaven will

And the song birds will daily sing
for her sake.
We leave her in her Father's care,.

Some day well meet you in a
brighter, happier sphere.
