Ex-Servlce Boys Aided In Maintaining
Order In Recent, Disturbance at
American Legion men have again
played a part In maintaining law and
order during n strike, without taking
part In the controversy. During the
disturbance In Denver which accom
panied the tramway walkout, Legion
naires extended their assistance In
directing traffic, patrolling the resi
dence district nnd doing general
guard duty. In the course of this
service one Legionnaire was ntttacked
by thugs nnd badly beaten.
The Leglnnnnlres were mobilized for
duty Immediately following receipt of
an appeal from Governor Shoup. A
statement was Issued declaring that
tho Legionnaires "will be used In no
capacity except the maintenance of
law and order In the community, nnd
not In any manner hearing upon tho
controversy between the tramway com
pany nnd its employees."
That this decision As adhered to
Indicated In editorial comment by Den.
ver newspapers which complimented
the veterans on their usefulness. "Tho
American Legion made It perfectly
clear that It was out for the purpose
of maintaining lnw and order," said
one paper, while another asserted that
"Denver owes him (the Legion mnn)
nn everlasting debt of gratitude."
A number of persons were killed and
Injured In riots during the strike.

Counsels for Dally Living.
Having set forth In the previous
chapters the standard of righteous
ness.' Christ now exhibits the under
lying principles which control the heir
to the kingdom.
I. As to Giving (0:1-1).
Doing alms before men Is not con
demned, ns that would contradict
Matthew r:10, but the doing of them
before men to be seen of them. To
seek publicity In doing our nlms Is
to miss the reward of our heavenly
II. As to Praying (n:fi-1.r).
1. False prayer (vv. f, 7). This con
sists (1) In praying lo be Fcen nnd '
heard of men (v. 5). (2) Using vain
repetitions (v. 7). This does not menn
thnt we should ask but once, for we 1
hnve examples of Christ nnd Pnul
praying three times for the snme thing '
(Matt. 20:30-40; II Cor. 12:7. 8), but '
the using of meaningless repetitions. I
2. True prayer (v. 0). Since prnyer
Is n transaction of the soul with God,
we should hnve n real desire for fel
lowship with the Father, then go and
meet him fh secret.
3. The model prnyer (vv. 0-15). Tills
Involves (1) right relationship "Our
Father" (v. 0); (2) right attitude
"Hallowefl be thy name" (vv. 0, 10) ;
(3) right spirit "C.lve ns our dally
bread," "Forgive us our sins," "Lead
us not Into temptation" (vv. 11-13).
III. As to Fasting (vv. 10-21).
The Lord knew the temptation
which would befall his children In
tticfr pilgrimage here below touching
wordllness, nnd the anxiety to which
It would lead ; therefore, he sets forth
the proper attitude toward them:
1. The nature of earthly riches (w,
10, 21). (1) Uncertain (w 10, -20).
Earthly trensures corrode, or are taken
from us. (2) Seductive (v. 21). Christ
called riches deceitful (Matt. 13:22).
It Is not wrong to possess earthly
treasures, but when earthly treasures
possess us they become a snnre.
' 2. The effect of earthly riches (vv.
22-21). (1) They blunt the moral and
spiritual perceptions (vv. 22-23). When
the heart Is upon earthly treasures It
Is taken off God! (2) They render
null nnd void all service (v. 24).
IV. As to Faith In the Heavenly
Father (vv. 25-34).
1. Re not anxious about food and
clothing (vv. 25-32). Recnuso (1) It
shows distrust for God (v. 30). (2)
It Is useless (v. 31). Anxiety can
bring nothing. (3) It Is heathenish
(v. 32). Those who have not learned
to know God may worry over tem
poral affairs, but those who know him
as a loving Father should be free
2, Re anxious to seek the kingdom
of Ood nnd serve him (vv. 33, 31).
This does not forbid proper fore
thought In making a reasonable sup
port for one's self nnd family.
V. As to Censorious Judgments
1. The sin nnd folly of censorious
Judgments. This does not forbid us
making an estimate of the lives of
those about us, for "by their fruits
ye shall know them;" neither does
It prevent us from administering re
buko to those who deserve It. It re
bukes that reodlness to blamo otners
and to magnify their weakness and
2. The duty of discrimination In
dealing out holy things (v. 0). The
gospel should be preached to nil, but
there should be discrimination, for
"dogs and swine" havo no comprehen
sion as to holy things.
3. Qualification for discrimination
(w. 7-12 (1) A life of prayer (vv.
7-11). A life of prayer Is a requisite
for rightly divining tho word o'( truth.
(2) A disposition to trent others us
one would be treated (v. 18). Confu
cius set forth this principle negatively,
but only tho Christ could do It posi
tively. Rctween the nognjlvo and pos
itive sides of this rule Is found the
, difference between heathenism and
Christianity. Xo man can live this
rule unless he has been bom from
