The International Sunday School Lesson For Feb
ruary 2 Is "The Giving of Manna"
Exodus 16:1-36
I was in Great Britain when Lord
Rhonda inaugurated his food ration
ing scheme; and I shall always be
glad for the experience. As every
traveller knows, the British are fam
ous grumblers about their food; I
have heard them grousing clear
around the world. Yet when the
rationing scheme was put into ef
fect for all, from king to coster, I
never heard a whimper. All men
adjusted themselves to the rigorous
regime cheerfully, for the sake of
an ideal. It revealed the truth that
character has made great advances
since the days of the whimpering
Jews who would have exchanged
their liberty for the flesh pots of
Nobody can contemplate the spirit
in which the allied nations carried
on under war's restrictions without
a sense of pride in the wholesome,
brave and idealistic spirit of our
people. The spectacle is a discour
aging one for pessimists. North
America voluntarily rationed itself
in order to feed the world. With

Bread I.incs, Gld and New
This far have we advanced, that
the number of persons who will
voluntarily go hungry for the sake
of an Ideal Is not small. The eman
cipated Jews were not among them.
When the pangs of hunger attacked
them, they forgot all about the joys
of liberty, about the marvelous
crossing of the Red Sea, about the
miracles of the plagues, about the
Passover and about the twelve
springs at Elim, and remembered
only the flesh pots of Egypt. They
preferred bread with beatings to
hunger with honor.
One ailment of these wanderers,

blotted out for these Israelites by
the consciouness that they were
hungry; if they could only be fed.

mind no other ills.
Facing the Verities
A certain mild-spoken son of a
preacher remarked, in commenting
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is not
recommended for everything, but if
you have kidney, liver or bladder
trouble, it may be found just the
medicine you nee.d. Swamp-Root
makes friends quickly because its
mild and immediate effect is goon rea
lized in most cases. It is a gentle
healing herbal compound a physi
cian's prescription which has proved
its great value in thousands of the
most distressing cases according to
reliable testimony.

"I don't know why it is, but some
how I never Bet to bo really sood
friends with a fellow, until I ha\e
licked him." There is, philosophy
lying buck of the youngster's re
mark. Jehovah could never get
along with His chosen people until
He had shown them His sovereign,
ty. and they were dependent wholly
upon Him. Now once again in tho
wilderness, as in Egypt and at tho
Red Sea, the Israelites had to be
brought face to face with the great
verity, that it is God who provides.
This was the lesson that was be
ing taught, "line upon line, precept
upon precept," in that forty-year
session of the Wilderness school.
The Jews had to learn before they
could become in truth n nation, that
Jehovah alone was God, and that
He was their God. their guide, their
protector, their provider. Proud
man has to be made aware of his
insufficiency; earth is utterly depen
dent upon heaven. In tho face of a
storm, a drought, a flood, he is as
helpless as a cockleshell upon the
wind-tossed ocean. To learn the ex
istence of heaven it is worm while
to feel the shaking of earth beneath
one's feet.
The tremendous and vital truth
of God's providence may not be ob
scured by secondary causes. What
if He chooses to send our daily
bread by the way of the wheat field,
the miller, and the bake oven, in
stead of rain from heaven? As Malt
bie D. Babcock sang;
Back of the loaf is Ihe snowy flour,
And back of the flour the mill:
And back of the mill is the wheat
and the shower.
And the sun and the Father's will."

and especial commiseration should
be extended to him because he had

lowers. Everybody finds it hard to
work with people, and many are
prone to say that they have the most
uncongenial and difficult company
of associates. But Moses really did
have a rare lot of spineless grom

turns the married state, which God
meant to be a blissful one, into e
state of torment, so fretting, wor
rying and fear convert the Chris
tian's relationship with God, which
should be a peaceful, confident
thing, into a burden and a cross.
John Wesley said that he would no
more dare to fret than to swear;
for he knew that both are expres
sions of impiety.
The Rain of Bread
The grumbler would grumble In
heaven, if a grumbler were ever ad
mitted there. Jehovah undertook to
show the Israelites that the root of
their complaining lay deeper than
the lack of bread. First, though. He
made It plain that their murmuring
was not against Moses and Aaron,
but against Him. Who ever insults
the king's ambassadors insults the
king. They who rail against fate
and circumstances are usually rail
ing against God.
To vindicate His own glory
which is dearer to Him than men
commonly think—Jehovah promised
to rain bread from heaven for them
day by day—bread in the morning,
and, occasionally, at least, meat la
the evening. It was to come day by
day, suggesting that the spiritual
life cannot be sustained on past ex
periences any more than the body
on stale manna.
Of course all this was a miracle—
"Manna " or "What is it?" cried
the astonished pilgrims. But this
is not wonderful. The principle of
divine providence is so important
that God will work any number of
miracles to maintain it. Back of the
fact, and not to he obscured by it,
lies the truth. God will care for
His own even if he has to send the
Angel Gabriel down from the high
est heaven to act as one of earth,' 3
messengers. "The Lord will pro
vide." is the homely, tested teaching
of this event, and of the history of
all those whom Jehovah has called

In a thousand ways during the
war, by natural increase of harvest,
by the appearance of unexpected
allies and resources, by opportune
fogs and rains, by the timely arrival
of re-enforcements, by the develop
ment of women workers, we have
been taught during the war of old,
simple and profound lesson of the
good providences of God. He is the
Lord of the manna and the ravens
and of the widow's cruse.
As to the manna, we can only re
peat the exclamation of those who
first found It—"What is Is?" It was
j plainly not a natural product; we
[ only know why it was sent and the
purpose it served. When God's peo
ple are In need He brings out of His
Infinite treasure-house stores new
and old for their help. They think
lightly of Hint who say that He can
do no more than He has already
gone; Jehovah Is a God of exhaust
less resources. Of lale we have
been surprised at the possibilities
and resources within ourselves, as
a nation and as Individuals. Who
would have dared to predict, five
years ago, that North America
could perform such wonders in
army-creation, food-supply and con
servation, and financial resources
for national service? With the stress
of the times, and In a fresh spirit
of reverence, our people have mado

He Says
Washington, Jan. 31.—Questions of
whether appearance of packers' rep
resentatives before Congress would
grant them limniunity from prosecu
tion under Federal laws and of com
pelling the Federal Trade Commis
sion to disclose the identity of wit
nesses upon whose testimony
charges of collusion were brought
against the packers came up at hear
ings yesterday before the Senate and
House committees.
Louis F. Swift, president of Swift
Company, after conferring with
his counsel, toid the Senate Agricul
tural Committee he would waive any
rights he might have in respect to
his testimony regarding the aban
donment of the M..K. and T. railroad
stockyards at Fort Worth, Tex., lo
cated near plants in which Swift &
Company and Armour & Company
were interested.
The question of possible immunity
for the witness was raised when
Francis J. Heney began questioning
Mr. Swift with regard to the aban
donment of the railroad yards. Mem
bers of the committee said evidence
in this matter had been referred to
the Department of Justice, which was
considering Its application on the
Sherman anti-trust law.
T. E. Wilson, president of Wilson
& Company, was testifying before the
House Interstate Commerce Commit
tee when members brought up the
matter of requiring the Federal
Trade Commission to furnish the
names of the witnesses. Mr. Wilson,
In reply to questions, denied that
there was any collusion among the
packers to fix prices. Representative
AY lnslow. of Massachusetts, then said
it .would be useless to proceed fur
ther with t,lie questioning of the
witness unless the committee had
something more to base questions on
than "an anonymous allegation."
He suggested that the committee ask
the rade Commission to submit their
names and that the witnesses be
called to testify.
The suggestion was embodied in a
resolution offered by Representative
Decker, of taossiuro, which specified
that if the Commission refused t
Rive the names, the committee
should demand them. A vote on it
was not taken because several mem
bers objected, but the committee ex
