"Jeroboam. A Man with a
T King 11:26-40.
The history of Jeroboam is very
brief; we know nothing of his early
life; he was from the tribe of Eph
rnim, lived in Zaredah, his mother's
r.nme was Zernah a widow. As
King Solomon built the temple,
which took several years, his own
bouse Avas thirteen years in build
ing; all this and many other pub
lic, enterprises required much man
rower, which was compulsory, or
forced labor without pay.
That was the order of that time
so were the pyramids in Egypt built.
While the tribe of Ephram was call
ed for their share of forced labor,
this young man Jeroboam was
among them; as Solomon observed
tli it man at work, he beheld a
mighty man of valor and ery indus
trious no shirker, no eye server
this made him foreman over the
vorkers while rebuilding Millo. Here
ve read between the lines, and al
though we have no record of a re
bellion at this time, we surmise
that Jeroboam stirred up the Eph
ranites, that they became dissatisfied,
y being forced to work for noth
ing, no pay. When Solomon found
out who was fomenting and causing
this condition, he tried to kill Jero
boam, who being apprised of Solo
mon's intention, fled- into Egypt and
remained there until after the death
of Solomon. While Jeroboam was in
Solomon's favor, he had many op
portunities to arouse his tribe to re
bellion until he was found out.
This was a misuse of his opportuni
ties, so he lost his job.
Now, the scene changes. One day
as Jeroboam left Jerusalem on a
business trip, he met a prophet of
Jehovah. Abijah of Shiloh like
Saul met by Samuel. A strange act
followed there were no witnesses to
this scene the prophet had sup
plied himself with a new coat, but
he takes it up and tears it into
twelve pieces, and bids Jeroboam to
pick up ten pieces, saying that the
Kingdom will be divided because of
d!f obedience' of Solomon whom God
had promised a long life and an
abiding kingdom. In his address,
Atijah made practically the same
promises to Jeroboam whom God
Miss Beatrice Chapman who was
severely injured in an auto collision
last Sunday evening was taken to
the Clarkson hospital in Omaha
where she was given treatment, is
reported as gettin galong fairly well.
The Hobson ambulance of Weeping
Water came and took her to the hos
pital. With Dr. G. H. Gilmore and
the parents she was cared for at the

Has Beautiful Home Retreat.
At the home of Walter J. Wunder
lich and wife and her father, D. C.
West, in the rear of which there is
a beautiful woodland, they have
turned the same into a very beauti
ful park with tables, benches and a
platform with a tree house for the
bovs. Jack and Bobbie, and which
with the care and work make it an
inviting place to rest and enjoy the
coolness of the shade when the days
are hot. Electric lights are installed
for night and also places for radio
which makes a delightful place for
meetings. Recently the Chamber of
Commerce of Nehawka enjoyed a
pleasant evening there in the woods
which made a very fine place for
Enjoyed Family Gathering.
The J. H. 6teffens family enjoyed
a get together at the Steffens home

Steffens, Frank Horstman and family
of Talmage, Albert Anderson and
wife of Nehawka. Laverne Steffens
and Maxine of Nehawka, which made
a very happy family get-together for
a very fine dinner. Miss Margaret
Steffens of Chicago, a graduate nurse,
was also present to enjoy the occa
sion. Married at Lincoln Saturday.
Miss Violet Chappell, daughter of
Louis Chappell of Nehawka, who has
been making her home in Lincoln,
was united in marriage to M. R.
Dudman last Saturday. They will
make their home in Lincoln where
the husband is employed by a con
struction company. Both of the
contracting parties are excellent
young people and have a host of
friends who are pleased to extend
congratulations and best wishes for
their future happiness and prosper

By L. Neitzel, Murdock, Neb.
used to punish Solomon, and who
was given a rare opportunity of be
coming one of God's noblemen, and
have his name in the hall of fame.
(See Heb. 11). In the address of
Abijah to Jeroboam we should no
tice the following fundamental ideas:
(1) The sin of Solomon is definately
specified; (2) The piety of David is
remembered; (3) The necessity for
the fulfillment of the scriptures Is
emphasized; (4) Not much is made
or the goodness of Jeroboam. "This
emission is significant. It suggests
that the Ephranite was used only
as an instrument of Providence for
the punishment of sinners, and for
this service had the reward of his
ambitions. Therefore the success of
cur desires in this world is no cer
tain proof either of our goodness or
of God's favor. But in respect to his
service, God gave Jeroboam a glor
ious opportunity by goodness to
make himself great like David. What
orportunities does God graciously
vouchsave to us!" J. A. MacDohald.
The division of the Kingdom was a
divine act; it was the breaking up
of a divine institution. The divine
potter, like mere human artisans,
has the spoiled pieces of work, and
with infinite resources and patience
as infinite reshapes the clay into
other forms. God works out his pur
poses through men's deeds and his
motives determine whether their
ats are sins or obedience. "A .man
may be a rebel while he Is doing the
will of God, if what he does be done
at the bidding of his own selfish
ness." Alexander Maclaren.
Jeroboam did not use his oppor
tunities to become a great man; he
rnther misused them to the injury of
himself and his kingdom. Men in
high stations in nations and life are
doing every day what Jeroboam did.
What a terrible thing it is to make
others sin. Every man has enough to
answer for his own deeds, let alone
to cause others to sin.
This epitaph stands in bold relief
over Jeroboam's tomb: "Here lies
the man that made Isvael to Bin."
Sin yourself, if you will sin. But, as
you would have a drop of water to
cool your tongue in that torment:
rlo not make other men to sin. So
Jeroboam, who made Israel to sin,
though dead, yet speaketh.
