The time (vv. 1. 2). It began on the tenth day of the tenth month of the ninth year or Zedekiah's reign, last- ing about eighteen monthL The tenth month, according to the Jew's calen- dar, corresponds to our December-Jan- uary, as their calendar began about the middle of March. The reason the exact time Is given Is that this was to be an event of great importance to tlm Jews in their exile. In their gloomy exile God directed Ezekiel to utter a parable unto the captives of that day (Ezek. 24). 2. The method (v. 11). Nebuchad- nezzar came in person with a large army and encamped against Jerusalem, building forts against It round about. It is thought that several walls were built around the city, shutting It in. On the tops of these walls forts were built from which missiles of destruc- tion could he hurled by their engines of war against the city. With the city thus shut in, its fall was only a question of time. 3. The famine (v, 3). Gelkle says, "It was speedily followed, as is always the case, with an outbreak of pesti. lence. Food was well-nigh gone. There had long been no bread, Mothers were at last driven to murder and eat their children. The richest citi- zens wandered about searching for scraps In the d~ng hills." Even out- side the city the people were starving. "There was no bread for the people of the land." It Is estimated that one-third of the people of Jerusalem died of starvation.- II. Zedsklah's Flight and Fate (vv. 4-7). 1. "The city was broken up" (v. 4). The Chaldeans had succeeded In mak- ing a~ opening In the wall so large that they could make their way into the city In spite of all that the He- brews could do. Resistance was car- tied on to the bitter end. 2. Zedeklah's flight (v. 4). The king with his men of war fled by night to- ward the plain. His object no doubt was to cross the Jordan at Jericho and hide In the mountains east of the Jordan. 3. Zedeklah's fate (vv. 5-7). a. He was overtaken in the plains of Jericho (v. 5). As soon as the Chaldean army discovered the flight they pursued and captured him. b. He was brought to the king of Babylon at Riblah (v. fl). Riblah was a town north of Damascus. It was the king's headquarters from which he directed his armies against Tyre and Jerusalem. Before Nebuchadneszar Zedekiah was tried as a criminal e. His fate. His sons were slain In his sight. His own eyes were put out. He was bound with fetters of brass and they carried him to Babylon where he remained a prisoner to the day of his death (Jer. 52:11). Ill. Jsrusalem Deetroyvd (vv. 8-10). The dismantling of the city was delayed a month, perhaps awaiting In- structions from Nebuchadnezzar who was at Rlblah. The work of deetrue. tlon was executed by the officer next In rank to the kinl. L They burnt the house of the Lord (v. 9). Thls was the sacred temple lmnt by Solomon, with additions and alterations. Before burning it, they plundered It of all Its sacred con- tents. 2. Burnt the king's house (v. 9). This was doubtless the palace built by Solomon. 8. Burnt all the houses of Jeru- salem (v. 9). The implication Is that the common houses were left for the people (v. 12). 4. They broke down the walls of Jerusalem. The aim In this was to render the walls useless as a means of defense. IV. The Disposition of the Temple Furniture and Priests (vv, 18-21). I. The temple furniture carried to Babylon (vv. 13-17). The pillars of brass and the brazen sea were broken into pieces by the Babylonians and to. gether with the utensils were carried to Babylon. 2- Certain officers and priests taken to Rlblah (vv. 18-21). These officers and priests and three seore men of the land were taken to Riblah, where they were slain by the king of Babylon. The events recorded In Second Kings cover a period of 308 years. God had said, "If thou wilt. then I will"; they had Invited disaster by disobedience. Ezporienee In youth we learn how little we can do for ousselves, In age how little we can do for others.

"Finis" was written when all books, papers and records of the Citizens' Bank of Harrison, Ohio, were deposited In a vault. The bank was founded more than 50 years ago by Frank Bowles, its sole owner, Two years ago Bowles decided to retire and with the approval of the state banking de- p~rtment started liquidating his bank.

Thus the cold germ becomes America's Public Health Enemy Number One. Any sudden change in temperature as you go from a warm room into a cold one disturbs the heat-regulating apparatus ot the body and makes it susceptible to cold germ attacks. Even the brief time that it takes to answer the telephone in an unheated hall is sufficient. Fight against "colds." They create a condition of depressed physical vitality which is favorable to infection and aid the progress of serious organic diseases that frequently result in death. The common cold germ shows no raver. Invisible but dangerous, this Num- bet One Enemy ot Public Health skulks like a ban- dit of the night ready to rob you o! good health. If your home is inadequately heated . . . if you "huddle" in one room during winter, sudden temperature changes are unavoidable. Your family goes from an over-heated room where the temperature has climbed as much as ten degrees past the point necessary for comfort, into a cold hall or adjoining room; then shivering and chi, lled, they return to the heated room. This happens many times a day. Each time it happens they have made themselves susceptible to highly communicable winter diseases. Fight colds this winter with proper ventilation and adequate heat in every room in the home. ...
