ON DAVID, it strikes me
that you are out a great s
deal of late. I don't ap- b
prove of boys of your age a
Ibeing out evenings: it leads j
to bad company, and bad
company leads to all kinds of badness. 11
I hope you don't spend your time at the b
ta v-ern?" s
"*Son Daid," a broad-shouldered six
footer. smiled a little, and colored a h
great deal at these words.. which were
delivered with a precision and a sol
enmity of look and tone that made d
them doubly impressive.
"There's no occasion for any alarm,
father: I keep very 'good company. d
And as for the tavern, I haven't set t)
foot in it for six months or more." f,
About the usual hour. David laid n
aside his book, and putting on a clean i
collar and a linen coat, fresh from the b
hands of Aunt Betsey, sauntered down b
toward the village. This had been his
custom for several weeks past, and the I
old deacon shook his head with a per
plexed and somewhat troubled air. i:
"I suppose the lad finds it rather dull
here," he mused; "the house is lonely." r
And, as lie recalled the light of a d
certain bright eye and a sunny smile. y
what he had thought of doing "for the d
sake of David" seemed a not unpleas- a
ant thing to do for his own. S
"I think I'll go and consult Parson y
Dunlow," thought the deacon. who, like
the generality of mankind. having fully r
made up his mind on the subject. de- 11
ternined to seek advice. not for the i
purpose of gaining any additional light, it
but to strengthen and confirn his own s
The worthy deacon bestowed quite as k
much time upon his toilet before leav- it
ing the house as did "Son David." And si
if a glimpse of the sprinkling of gray
in the hair that he brushed so carefully Q
away from his temples made him some- a
what doubtful as to the result of his of
mission, it was but for a moment. ei
Ought not any woman to be proud of al
the honor of becoming Mrs. Deacon k:
Quimby, wife of one of the most le
wealthy and influential citizens of the
place, even though his hair migtht be d<
a little frosty and his form not so erect w
as when he departed on the selfsam"
errand thirty years before. f
In the weekly prayer meetings, of b:
which he took the lead, the deacon
often called himself "the chief of sin
ners." "an unprofitable servant." and rt
the like, confessing and bewailing the
depravity of his heart. But.lk a el
great many other self-styled "misera- si
ble sinners." he had a tolerably g ood~ ui
u'niniion of himself after all, making a
the aitore contfession with an alir that
seemed to say: "If I. Deacon Quimbhy, gi
a pillar of the church. andl a shining t1:
exaniple to you all, can say this. avhiat ei
must be the condition of the majoritym
of those ar'ound me?"
Hie found Parson D~unlow in his hn
study, hard at work upon his n ext Sun- 01
dany's discourse. But he wats used to ig
interruptions. and had a sin(cere li king
for the worthy deacon, who was his a
right-hamud mnan in every good work: so. IV
laying down his pen. he shook him g
wvar'my by the hand and bade hinm be ui
But somehow the deacon found it v
difficult to get out what he came to
say--the words seemed to stick in ihis I]
throat. But at last he ma naged to (1

:NTERNATIONAL LESSON COMMENTS
FOR APRIL 9.
Subject: The rtaising of Lazarus. John
xi., 32-45-Golden Text, John xl., 25
Memory Verges. 33-aG-,Commentar
on the Day's Lesson.
I. The meeting of Jesus and 1ary
(v. 32). 32. "When lary was come."
Martha first heard that Jesus was con
ing, and, without notifying Mary. she c
went to meet Jesus just outside the
village. She greeted Him with those
words of sorrowful despair"Lord. if
Thou hadst been here my brother had
not died." But even then there was a
dawn of hope in her heart, from her
experience of the power of Jesus. -
Jesus repiied with the assurance that
He was "the resurrection and the life,"
and prepared her for the great work
He was about to do. "If Thou hadst
been here." These words express the
very essence of soul torture at such 9
times. In our affliction we continually S
echo the if of these sisters, saying to Z
ouarselves. if wve had not done this, or
if we had not done that, or if it had
not been for our blunder, or that of our,
friends, or that of our physician, our
beloved would not have died. But read
verse 4 of this chapter.
I. Christ's compassion (vs. 33-37).
. "Groaned in the spirit." This is V I
siluange term and is better rendered by
the margin of the revised Version- P
"was moved with indignation in the e
spirit." Jesus was indignant at the I s
hypocritical and sentimental lamenta
tions of His enemies, the .1ews, miing
ling with the heartfelt sorrow (if His
loving friend Mary. These self-r-ight- b
cous Jews, now weeping and gro.ining
in professional sorrow with Mary were
men who would soon be plotting to
kill. not only Jesus, but the retored
Lazarus (compare chap. 12:10). "Was
tr'oubled." "Troubled Himself."
Marg.. It. V. Probably the meaning is a
that le allowed His deep emotion to d
become evident to bystanders. 34. t
"Where-laid him." A question ad
dressed to and answere'd by the sisters. C
35. "Jesus wept." Here the blessed o
Jesus shows Himself to be truly man; t
and a muan. too, who, notwithstanding b
His amazing dignity and excellence,
did not feel it beneath Him to sym- a
pathize with the distressed and to t
weep with those who wept. After 1
this example of our Lord shall we say .
that it is weakness, folly and sin to
weep for the loss of relatives? 36.
"How He loved him." A spontaneous
testimony from those Jews of the ten- e
(dernoss of the Son of God.
::7. "Could not this man." The mir- d
ace of the blind man was referred to
because it was of recent occurrence, C
and in the immediate neighborhood.
while the two previous' miracles of
raising tile dead (Luke 7:11-17; 8:41-5t;
.ere performed in distant Galilee,
about on1e year and a half before. Sev
eral leading commentators think that
these Jews were unbelieving and now 1
refer to the healing of the blind man A
.i a deriding manner, suggesting that
if He could have done that. then He
could have kept Lazarus alive, and
real love would have prompted Him
to (o it if He had power.
III. Words of comfort (vs. 38-40). 38.
"Again groianing." Blecause of the un
belief of the Jews. We never find
Him in as nmuch grief 'over His ownl
sufferinlgs as over the sins of men.
"Cometh to the grave." Lazarus was,
as became his station, not laid in a
emetery, but In his own private tomb

Michael Angelo relied almost en

Charles H. Caffin in St. Nicholas. He
told Pope Julian II., when the latter
requested him to paint the ceiling of
the Sistine cha'pei at Rome, that he
was not a painter, but a sculptor; yet.
after he had shut himself ulp for four
years-from 1508 to 1512--and thei
scaffold was removed, a result had
been achieved which is without paral
lel in the world. Very wornderful is
the work which Michael Angelo
spread over this vast area of 10,000
square feet. The fact that there are
343 principal figures, many of colos
sal size, besides a great number of
others Introduced for decorative ef
fect. and that the creator of this vast
scheme was only 33 when he began
his work-all this is marvelous, prodi
gious, and yet not so marvelous as

Vhat Does Christ's Life Show Us
About the Father?-John 14. 6-24.
This chapter was a part of that last
iscourse of Jesus the night before
.is crucifixion. We have here the
ast utterances of the Master. While
here is somewhat of disconnection
2 the themes of the chapter, there
uns through it all this plan: to give
the disciples a series ,of truths
hich would be a comfort to them in
is absence. The various relations ex
ting between Jesus as the Son and
be Father form the special thought
f our lesson. He has already
poken of "my Father's houses.'' and
f the fact that if they believed in
Eod they should believe also in him.
:ow, in answer to the query of
'homas as to the way, lhe declares
bat he is the Way. the Truth, and
be Life. Jesus is the Way to the
'ather, he is the Truth that reveals
bat Father, and he is the Life which
omes from the Father.

till reveal many interesting relations

Jesus's Love a Guarantee of the

startled by a large wildcat landing
suddenly on their engine.
The animal emitted a blood curdling
cry as it landed, and when the dust
cleared away they saw the angry
beast only a few feet away glaring at
them. The two men seized weapons
