But It will not do to trifle with

Itrv. Jenkins tonk for his subject the
story of Jtldns Iscurlot's betrayal of
Christ, analyzing the character of the
man nnd what prompted him to for
sake the Saviour. Ills text was found
In the thirteenth chapter of John and

received the sop. went Immediately

In the emu hc of his remarks, Rev.
Jenkins said: "The Lord chose twelve
