More About Foot Washing.
Dear Editor:—l have studied a
great deal about the 13th chap
ter of our Lord’s Gospel according
to Ht. John, of course we all do
not see things alike and it is hard
for me to tell the reason. I have
heard of some great revival
springing from the sacred per
formance of foot washing in the
church and 1 am not convinced
that what I said in my iirst ar
tide was wrong; and I hope that I
am no more a hardshell than your
correspondent. lam merely try
ing to keep God’s Commandments
ing follow in the footsteps of our
Lord and Haviour Jesus Christ and
if that makes a man a hardshell
I say amen praise the Lord lei’s all
be a hardshell and dabbed in the
water if Jesus say’s dabbed in it.
How can do we important thing’s
if we neglect minor tbingsf No I
am not depending on any work’s
that I can do to save me but Broth
er, please tell us how to keep in a
saved condition after we are
washed in the bloo lof the Lamb
that was slain from the foundation
of the world if it is not following
alter Chrisi and doing what he
says do. Jesus made the way and
there is none other name given
uuder Heaven wh< reby we may lx
saved, and we don’t have say if
1 am able to get to lleaven or if 1
am saved. Mo he says believe on
the Lord Jesus C hrist and thou
shall be saved Brother don’t be

than just believiug, One among
the meanings is to follow the ex
amples and teachings of Christ

But why would t'lmst do this!
If the diciples feet needed wadi
ing they could wash them them
selrs. A wise man will not do a
thing that looks odd and unusual,
but for very good causes and con
sideiations we are sure that it
was not in a frolic that this was
done. No, the transaction was
very solemn and carried on with a
great deal of seriousness; this was
oone that he might testify his love
ti) the disciples that he might give
an instance of his own volui tary
humility and condescension that
he might signify to them spiritual
washing w hich is referred to in his
discourse w ith Peter that he might
set them an exam pie, and 1 under
stand that whenever the Lord set
an example for the disciples In
set one for us also therefore those
whom Christ loves lie loves to tin
end when those that have called
themselves disciples afterwards
prove false. What will become of
them iu the end because when we
think we are something when w e
are nothing, we deceive ourselves.

Suffered Twenty-One Years
Finally Found Relief
Having suffered for twenty-one
years with a pain in my side, I
finally have found relief in Dr.
Kilmer’s Swamp Root. Injections
of morphine were my only relief
for short periods of time. I be
came so sick that I had to under
go a surgical operation in New
Orleans, which benefited me for
two years. When the same pain
came back one day I was so sick
that I gave up hopes of living. A
friend advised me to try your
Swamp Root and I at once com
menced using it. The iirst bottle
did me so much good that I pur
chased two more bottles. I am
now on my second bjttle and am
leeling like anew woman. I
passed a gravel stone as large as a
big red bean and several small ones.
I have not had the least feeling of
pain since taking your Swamp
Root and I feel it my duty to rec
commend this great medicine to
all suffering humanity. Gratefully
