THE JUDGMENT OF GOD
Jesse M. Hendley
Now friends, if you have your Bibles, turn with me to

youngsters sitting there, "What's the trouble?"
"Oh," they said, "the police are over there. A man
went off and came back and started beating his wife

his wife and child. Now if there were not any police,
that man would probably have killed his wife and
