Christ is on the track of the company from the north, who are going up to the Passover, that is to be celebrated at the close of the following week. The time, the company, the road, all serve to bring up to the Savior’s thoughts events that are now so near, to Him of such momentous import.

Conscription in peace time is something new in our country. We are, of course, acquainted with conscription from the time of the World War, when for a time voluntary enlistment was replaced by the draft. But as a regular and permanent institution conscription was not known in America until recently. It is true that even now conscription was resorted to as something special, as a defense measure.
