One day I witnessed here the bur
ial of a child. The young boy was
laid in tlio grave wrapped in a yard or
two of white cotton; a smaller h'olo
was dug at tho bottom of the grave,
and served as a coffin, being covered
with flat slabs of stono to prevent , the
earth from falling directly o'utbe.bddy.
Twenty or thirty men stood aronud in
silence, the earth was hastily replaced,
and temporary stones were placed at
the bead and ,teet; the cushions and
pieces of embroidery in which the body
lay on the donkey which bore it to tho
final resting-place were put back' on
tho animal, and the procession moved
silently away. The women and girls

graves and place flowers, and especial

01 tells us Jesus looked on blm. Wept bit
terly, tho thought of deep guilt swept ovor
1'oter's soul and ho went out Into tho darkness
to repent of his sins.
Few events in tho Blblo are so full of hu
' man nature and divine grace, of warning
and oomfort, as tho fall and restoration of
l'oter. Ihe nearest parallel caso In tho Biblo
is tho groat sin nnd rcpontanco of David.
After tho preliminary trial before tho high
priest ban taken place may of tho members
of the Jewish snnhodrim assembled la tho
council halt They know Jesus was to bo
arrested, and hence were ready. Perhaps
such members as Nlcodemus and Joseph of
Aramathea were absent, Tho sanhedrim
had authority to try thoso charged with cap
ital offenses, but could not exocute tho sen
tence of death. In this midnight trial of
Jesus overy rulo of Jewish law seems to havo
been violated In tho hasto and eagerness to
condemn him. Anight trial was not legal.
To be bound as a malofactor before ho was
arraigned, to bo beaten before a verdict was
rendered, to bo 6truck In open court whllo
tho trial was going on, wore all in violation
of overy sense of right nnd justice. Tho ir
regular and illegal trial of him by night was
suspondod until daybreak so that they could
then secure from Pilate tho sentence of his
death. In the timo elapsing till daylight
occurred the maltreatment by his lawless
enemies and the flenial by Peter.
V. 67. Aftor .tho sanhedrim had pro
nounced him "guilty of death" ho was sub
jected to a series of Indignities. Before tho
trial In the bouse of Annas he was struck by
one of tho officers. Doubtless others In au
thority Offered him insults. Tho common
guard soon followed In Jeer and mockery,
Tho abusive Insults of the underlings was thd
natural sequonco of tho more formal mockery
of their superiors. Lot It not surpriso, us if,
as followers of Jesus, we too recolvo Insults.
V. 08. After they had blindfolded him
they scoffed at his, prophetio ofllco as Mes
siah. Josus answered not a wont, though all
the universe was tat his command. No act Is
so contemptible as to ridiculo good persons
or holy things. And yet whon wo are
mocked silence is best.
V, CO. Poter was now Inside tho court yard
of tho palace of Calaphas. Ho had gainod
admittance through John, who was known
at tho palace. With tho servants he was
sitting around the fire, for tho night was
cold. A portress looking upon Peter said
that he was with Jesus. This drew upon
him the eyes of all about. An, obscure ser
vant becomes now the innosen't occasion of
the downfall of the chief of the apostles.
V. 70. In tho most cowardly fashion ho re
sorts to evasion, which always leads to direct
falsehood and oftorl perjury.
V. 71. Perhaps wishing to escape tho fur
ther observatlsn of the servants, ho went
into the vestibule or porch leading Into the
street, where aaother female slavo in ridiculo I
accused him of being with Jesus. Perhaps 1
several at the timo confirmed her
Christians cannot long bo hid when among
men of the world.
V. 73. Now ho boldly denies his Master,
and tho long cast off habit of swearing comes
back to him in tho moment of excitement.
He told an unblushing, positlvo Ho, when ho
said that he knew not Christ, and then tried
to confirm his falsohood with an oath. Bin
grows when it Is not checked. Tho disciple
first and loudest to profess his Lord, now
vehemently denies him I Times of fanatical
defense of tho faith are often followed by
V. 73. The men who stood by must havo
had a contempt for Peter's perfidy.
tV. 74. Irritated beyond enduranco, with a
positive witness against him, Poter nowlro
sorted to calling down cwrses on himself,
that what ho said was true, affirming before
God what he knew to bo false. How tho sins
.of , his formor lifo camo again to tho surfacol
Therd Is much hidden and remaining sin in
the best Christian.
When tho cock crow Peter remembered
what Jesus had said. And it was now that
Jesus turned and looked upon Peter. It was
tho look of wounded love. History boars to
us the tradition that ever after when Peter
heard tho crowing of a cock he fell on his
face and mourned over his base denial of his
At about 3 o'clock in tho morning, whon
his last denial occurred, Peter hurrlod out
into the dark, and gave way to deep sorrow
for his sins. lie not only wept, but wept bit
terly. Wo must not only notice Peter's sins,
but his slncoro tears of repentance. Tho re
morse of Judas tnado him rush out' and hang
himself, Tho repentance of Peter made him
turn to God with tears and crios. The re
membrance of his great sin eyer after hum
bled his proud and self confident spirit. His
repentance was completo.

followed Jesus afar qff. Had ho.k-pt nearer
to Jesus he would have been safer. 6. no

they kept closor together they all -would have

lected the warnings of -Jesus. He was ap
prised of coming danger, if. He did not bo
Uovo tho word of the Lord. Ho had too much
confidence in his own strength, e. He, with
presumption, rushed where danger was. f.
He neglected to exorcise that watchfulness and
prayer Jesus had pnjoinod. g. He, failed to
comprehend the teaching which the Lord
had repeatedly glvon of tho necessity of his
sufferings and death. He clung to the Jewish
notion that Christ would establish an earthly
kingdom, h. His piety was controlled more
by feeling than prinpiplo. In tho hour of
sore temptation we must be grounded on the
grand doctrines of grace, otherwise we will
