''Ijilsiring men should Is-ware of sur-

Kach man should ls a member of his

great deal of criticism hea-d uon the
unions of the country for the acts of
violence committed in times of strikes.
Such acts comes from the individual
niciiiliers and not from the union. The
second remedy that I could advance

the troubles that evi-t la-twccti capital

of "The Detective Who Is Never Out

Sure Your Sins Shall Find You Out."
In the course of a very interesting
sermon he carried his hearers back to
the time When the Jewish people were
a Hwer in the land, giving a short his
tory of their rise and their final fall,
which resulted from their disolicdience
of fiod's laws, as were defined to them
by their leader ami prophet, Mosea.
