"Peter Delivered from Prison"
Acts 12:5-17.
We study today One of the out
standing experiences of this remark
able man. All the circumstances and
events in this narrative are thrilling
and momentous; every detail is slgylfan in his unregenerated state is
niflcant. First, we notice the parties
in the plot to kill Peter; Herod
Agrippa I, grandson of Herold the
Great, then the clan of the Phare
sees, both of these start the persecu
tion of the Christian church, who
had a space of some eight years of
-peace, and was growing strong. The
leader of the church at Jerusalem the first martyr of the apostles.
When Herod saw it pleased the peo
ple, he decided to give them another
"show." So he ordered the arrest of
It being the preparation for the
Tassover when every Jew was busy,
Herod promised them a great treat
the next day, and the expectations of
the people were at high pitch. What
a great time they would have the
next day, when they would see the
head of another Christian roll in the
dust, as they had a few days before.
Il was all the talk as they ate the
passover; no one slept that night
but Peter and the watchmen.
Xext we see what takes place on
the part of God and the church.
First, we take note of Peter as he
prepares for his last night, chai led
to two soldiers. He says his prayers,
commits his soul into the hands of
God, undresses and bids his watchers
goodnight and goes to sleep.
Thus every child of God goes into
the night, and in the morning says
David: "I laid me down to sleep; I
waked, for the Lord sustained me."
Ps. 3:5). The blessed assurance
that God never sleeps nor slumbers.
The castle of Antonia with Peter in
it is well guarded and protected; the
watch of sixteen soldiers sees to
that. ;
In another part of Jerusalem is a
band of earnest disciples keeping a
watch night; they are much trou
bled, they have lost their leader and
are about to lose another on the
morrow. They do the only thing
they can do, take their trouble to
the Lord in prayer. Had they pray
ed for James? We don't know. Are
they praying for Peter's release?
Hardly! There was no escaping from
Teter's prison. But God can givj
Peter comfort and sustaining grace,
to die as a good soldier of Jeau3
Christ. All night petitions go up
to the throne of grace.
Does God hear and answer prayer?
In the last watch of the night God
Is getting busy; an angel is receiv
ing orders to release Peter. He is

Mr. and Mrs. Ray Creamer who
recently moved from the Mrs. Mary

a farm southeast of Murray, were
visiting their neighbors, Mr. and

business matters daring the after
noon. Edward Lewis of Union was
also a guest at the Merritt home for
dinner the same day.
W. II. Porter of Union was a visi
tor in Murray Monday, coming to at
tend the sale of James Miller, which
had been advertised for Monday of
this week, but after finding there
was no sale as advertised, as Mr. Mill
er had secured a fr.rm and conclud
ed to remain and farm for himself.
There were also many other people
who came to attend the sale and were
disappointed and like Mr. Porter had
to return to their homes. ,
Lesson Study!
By L. Neitzel, Mnrdock, Neb.
the angel orders him to dress and
follow. Prison walls and keepers
cannot hold God's children. Think of
Jeremiah, Daniel and others. We
have an all-powerful God, who is
able to deliver.
a real type of Peter chained in pris
on; there i3 no power on earth that
can free him but the Almighty God
and it takes the combined power
of God and man to get out of the
power of Satan, who is reluctant ti
give up his victim. In this case God
did his part and Peter did his part.
The rsult was a man free and will
ing to serve his Master.
Peter was a good sleeper, one the
mount of transfiguration, in Geth
semane and in prison. The soldiers
were also good sleepers. We marvel
at the simple way in which Peter
was set free. But trust God he in
variably finds a way of escape.
We go with Peter to Mary's home.
It's the upper room, the Pentecostal
chamber, the first Christian church.
The watchful Rhoda is the first to
hear Peter's voice. Was she expect
ing Peter? Was she to guard against
interruption? We do not know, but
she filled her place and done her
work well; as a good watcher, she
did not sleep.
Peter could pass an iron gae, but
was halted at a little wooden gate.
Knocking brought no response; nor.
is Rhoda believed by the prayer
group, but she goes and brings the
evidence. This would be proof that
I rayers were not offered for Peter's
release. God always gives more than
we ask for.
The company is amazed when they
see Peter, who briefly relates his re
lease from prison, and takes his de
parture; we are not told where he
went, but assuredly he left the city.
This happened only 14 years after
Pentecost. Peter's work was not
done. Cod had much work for him
Returning to Herod, who could
not put on the promised show, he
packed his grip and stole away to
Caesarea, ashamed to show himself
to the people. In this same year
came his end; 54 years old, he was
eaten of worms, and in five days he
was dead, just as his grandfather
had died. Peter could go on and
sing, with Ira D. Sankey:
"Under his wiags, I am safely
Tho' the night deepens and
tempest's j;row wild;
Still I can trust Him; I know
He will keep me;
He has redeemed me and I
am His child."
Peter could relate this experience
for the fetrengtheains o his brethren
in later years,
Arch Poynter, who had negotiated
to secure a residence In Weeping
Water, someone else getting the
place he had in view, was not able
to move to Weeping Water and still
remains a citizen of Murray.
Nominees for Town Board
With the terms of two members of
the town board expiring May 1st,
a total of six have been nominated
as candidates at .the April 4th elec
tion. Those selected by the caucus
held last week are J. A. Scotten and
Earl Merritt, incumbents, George E.
Xickles, E. S. Tutt, Font T. Wilson
and Robert Weston.
Eents Farm; Calls Off Sale
James B. Miller, who has been
farming a few miles west of Mur
ray, after being unable to locate a
farm for the coining year, concluded
to hold a sale of his equipment and
had the Journal print bills for the
same. A few days later he was able
to rent a farm near Talmage and
so called off the sale which was to
have been held Moncfay. On Tuesday
Frank Mrasek moved his goods and
farming implements to the new loca
tion. Honored Their Daughter by Dance
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lutz honored
their daughter, Miss Marie, last Fri
day, which marked her birthday an
niversary, by giving a social dance
at the Murray hall. A large number
of young people of the community
were present and a fine time was
had by all.
Old Blue Crossed Eiver
Lloyd Lewis had a hunch to try
his luck in hunting fox and taking
the dog of his son, Robert, known
as Old Blue, they scared up a fox.
As the trail grew warmer the fox
took for the ice on the Missouri and
headed for Iowa. Old Blue, undaunt
ed, followed close behind and soon
both were lost to sight in the tall
corn state. How the chase came on
no one knows, but the dog had not
returned three days later. Mr. Lew
is first thought to insert a want ad
in the paper, but knowing Old Blue
could not read, he concluded to let
the matter drop.
Working on Well Again
The Layne-Western company .that
is under contract to supply a well
for the new waterworks system in
Murray, is again working1 on the' old
well which proved insufficient on a
pumping test. The well was 20
inches in diameter and cased. Now
the casing will be pulled and the
size increased to 4 0 inches in diam
eter, as well as 40 feet deeper. Tho
experts of the company believe this
should bring an adequate water sup
ply to meet all tests. By enlarging
the size to 40 inches they will be
able to go through the rock strata
that was encountered at the bottom
of the present one and which pre
vented going deeper with the 20
inch shaft.
The company is under contract tc
supply the city with a well of ade
quate water flow and a prolonged
pumping test will be made before ac
ceptance by the town board.
Moved to Nickel Place.
Mr. and Mrs. Ray John Frizzel
and son Henry of Weeping Wa
ter came over and moved the house
hold goods and farming machinery
of Ray Creamer and family to their
new home for the summer, the Wm.
Xickle estate over beyond the high
way. Mr. Creamer is son-in-law of
Mr. and Mrs. Frizzle.

a car from the west driven by a
woman and one from the east driven
by a man, both moving at a fair rate
of speed. There was not enough
room for the car going east to pass
between the parked car and the other
auto and the brakes were applied,
the car skidding into the parked car
of Mr. Lancaster, tearing off the
spare wheel and damaging the fen
ders and swerved into the other car
coming up the hill. Thre were no
personal injuries and the damage to
all the automobiles was not great,
but still will cost somewhat to put
the cars in condition again.
Move to Murray.
Mr. and Mrs. X. C. Deles Dernier,
who" haveb een farmine the past few
years a few miles southwest of Mur
ray, not being able to secure a farm
for the present season, held a sale
recently, disposing of the farming
equipment and recently moved to
Murray, now being located in the
Mrs. Jennie Jenkins nronerty on the
north side of Main street.
Sale Is Called Off.
James B. Miller, making his home
a few miles west of town, where' he
has farmed, was not able to retain
the farm and after making an effort
to secure another farm and not suc
ceeding in getting a place decided to
hold a sale and discontinue farming
until such a time as he might secure
a farm. Bills were posted for the sale
which was to have been Monday,
March 6th. However late last week
Mr. Miller was able to secure a farm
near Talmage and called the sale
ofT, and while many came to attend
there was no sale.
Visits in Lincoln.
Elbert Keil was a visitor in Lin
coln last Sunday with a friend. He
reports no snow there, while it was
snowing here quite lively. As El
bert came toward Murray there ap
peared much snow and he found it
necessary to stop and put on his
chains in order to get home. It is
hoped that the moisture in the re
cent snows will insure a bountiful
crop for the coming summer.
