New Zealand Legislature Passes Act

"Pelorus Jack" is the name of an

According to an Australian colonist,
George Hayes. the official proclama
tion of the government prohibits any
interference with Pelorus Jack under
a penalty of ;100.
Forty years ago. when Mr. Hayes
first emigrated to Australia, he heard
an old sailor's tale, according to which
a shoal of dolphins grounded on the
shores of Cook Strait, and one of
them escaped into the sea. That cne,
which ik now acknowledged to be
Pelorus Jack, never left the locality
where he lost his companions, and,
as Mr. Hayes says, "he is now pro
tected by law as he has always been
The most remarkable fact of all is
the reason for the passage of the law,
which is that Pelorus Jack acts as a
most effective pilot, escorting all
kinds of vessels in and out of the
French Pass. Cook Strait, always
keeping to deep water.
For years he was believed to be a
beluga. or white whale. but recent
scienti~c investigation has shown that
he is really a dolphin. As he is nevei
absent from his duties the prcclama

PAUL THE PREACHE
C - R REGULAR SUNDAY SERMON
Brilliant Discourse By Rev. Robert
Brooklyn. N. Y.--Sundgy in Grace
Presbyterian Church, tie pastor. the
Rev. Robert H. Carson. took for his
subject -Paul the Preacher." His
text -was Acts xxiv:25: "And as he
reasoned of righteousn-ss. temperance
and judgment to cone. Felix trembled
i nd answered. Go thy way for thi
time: when I have a convenient sea
son I will call for thee." Mr. Carson
This book of apostolic labors gives
us a glimpse of Paul in many atti
tudes. We have him pictured before
his conversion and after, and whether
we see him at his manual occupation
of tent-inaking. or in Is frequent per
ils by land and sea, or addressing cul
tured audiences in splendid cities, or
individuals in palaces or in prisons
everywhere we see a man whom we
instinctively know to be one of earth's
choicest and noblest souls.
Just now be is standing before a
wicked king and his no less wicked
wife, and there is that in his demeanor
and his action which makes us proud
of Christianity and its power.
Too frequently weakness, with a
false gentleness and charity. are con
sidered the proper attendants of a
Christian spirit. and ofttimes a Chris
tian is slow of speech, or altogether
silent in the presence of evil lest le
should show a boldness unbecoming in
one who proposes himself to be a fol
lower of Him who was meek and low
ly. But there is no warraut for any
such conduct in the example of Christ,
or in the teaching of His apostles. In
deed. what strikes a reader most in
this book of apostolic acts is the bold
ness of spirit which the first preachers
of the gospel exhibited. We see Peter
standing in the pre.zeice of his own
enemies as well as in the presence of
the enemies of the Christ. and boldly
accusing them of the murder of the
Lord. And what said Christ Himself:
'I came not to send peace on earth.
but a sword." He was Christianity's
founder. and what He was, so should
His followers be. The Christian is to
speak the truth in love. but in the pres
ence of evil he must never be silent
through fear. nor mince his words to
suit men's ears, nor pander to their
likings. nor dread their criticism.
Apostolic boldness. then, is the first
point that we would note in the words
I which we have chosen as our text.
I Paul is in the presence of a man who
is master of his life. He speaks to a
ruler whose word is law. whose nod is
enough to seal his doom, and yet he
speaks so as to make that monarch
tremble. Ali. friends, a man who
knows his cause to be right can al
ways afford to be courageous and bold.
Truth at all times is wondrous fearless
and dreads no sacrifice, whether of
ease or fame or even of life itself, if
only God be honored and righteous
ness crowned. Look bick on that sa
cred line of fearless witnesses for God
I and see how strongly this element of
courage predominated. Of such was
Moses in the presence of Pharaoh, of
such was Nathan in the presence of
David, of such was Elijah before
Ahab. of such was JTohn the Baptist
before Herod, of such were the apos
tles and martyrs and glorious company
of the reformers. Luther would go to
the Diet of Worms and vindicate his
faith. tl'ough as many devils hindered
him as tnere were slates on the house
tops of Erfurt. When they laid JTohn
Knot. theo man who made Scotland.
in his grzave they said: "There lies one
wvho never feared the face of man."
And thi~s fearlessness, this cour-'ge,
need~ not be confined to the leaders
alone. The humblest Christian iy
share. anid should :iiare, in t~tis pr
ious heritage. To this line of chosen
couls-the very chivalry of the sains

Nehiemaiah. dai'es to say: "So willre

pr -e th trmh1 of this statement.
Felix lived in sin. Paul knew his man.
and he suited his sermon to his audi
ence. I am not sure that that serinon.
would escape criticism in these days.
I am of the opinion that many good
souls would say it was not evangeli
cal. He was invitcd to preach con
cerning the faith in Christ, and his
sermon was on righteousness. temper
ance and judgnent to come-topies
that any good man of any faith might
well discuss. Many might say, is that
Christian preaching? I say it is. and
more than that, it is the kind that this
age needs. and we need it every day.
If Paul had begun an argument re
specting Christ's divinity. or resurrec
tion, or any kindred topic. lie would
probably have had a most interesting
discussion with Felix. but think you
that he would have made him tremble?
Most men think that Christianity is
theology. No: Christianity is moraility
in the light of eternity. And that is
not the best preaching which delights
us with its close reasoning and high
speculation and profound theology:
that is the best preaching which inakos
us. if we are living in sin, turn uneasily
in our seats and tremble as we listen
to its truths. The law is our school
master to bring us to Christ. and it is
only when conscience is aroused. withia.
us t&9t we seek the grace which is in
Christ and which came by Christ. The
end of preaching is not to make men
theologians, the end of preaching is to
build up character. and while some of
us im..y be far enough on the road to
hear sermons on the deep things of
God. '1 am not pessimistic when I say
that, taking the world in its totality.
most of us are still where we need to
be reasoned with concerning righteous
ness, temperance and judgment to
"Preaching to the times" is a favor
ite expression nowadays. Its purpose
seems to be that men are to be amused,
as Felix had Paul in from the prison
to amuse him. He and he alone
preaches to the times who makes us
restless by showing us the demands of
God's eternal law and then points the
way clear up to Calvary and to Him
who said "Come unto Me all ye that
labor and are heavy laden and I will
give you rest." Thc-se are eternal veri
ties and they fit all times. All others
change and pass away with the ('hang
ing hour; social. political. :tye. even
theological questions have their days
and cease to be. but the eternal need
is forgiveness and the everlastilg
want. rest for the soul.
And so Paul reasoned of righteaus
ness to a man living in sin, of temper
anice to a woman who lived to gratify
every desire and wicked passion. and
of judgment to come to two who never
looked beyond the present world-the
first steps. the first necessary steps to
the pointing out of Him in whom alone
is forgiveness and from whom alone
we have the power to live so that at
His coining in glorious majesty to
judge the world we may not be put to
And now, in the last place. we notice
that this preaching was aonvincing.
That is clear enough. fo' a man does
not tremble without occasion. A man
does not tremble in the presence of
spiritual truth except his intellect has
been reached and his conscience
touched. Paul did his duty. but Felix
shirked his and turned his back upon
the truth. lie trembled. but lie did
not move. Are there not many men
like him with us to-day? "Go thy i
way." said he. "when I have a conve
nient season I will send for thee." Is
not that what we often lhear. But
when 'do those who say so find that
that convenient season ever comes?
What do we think of the man who in
matters of this world, is given to put
ting off and waiting to another time?
Our worldly wisdom tells us that such
a man will never come to any good
and nio one has any coniidence in him.
You see through him, and smile' rt al
his excuses for delay, and thiink you
that if a man cannot deceive his fel
ow's in this respect lhe can deceive God
andi hi ow.n soul? Thle Bible knows (of
no time but now. "Now is the accepted
time." And this is true not only of
the greatest of all tr'ansactions-our ac
ceptance of Jesus Christ-but of all the
duties that devolv'e uphon us as Chris
tian men~1 antd w~omen. We may have
t-(ay an opportunity of doing good. or
of receiving good., If we let it slIp that
door that ope'ned to us will he shut.
and it will never be opened again. Losi
oppotunities do not return. Others
may come. but the lost enes come not
again. Let us. then. seize every oppor
tunity, let us realize that the present
only is ours, and as we hear the waor'd
of Iitfe let us embrace it in its fulness
and live in its strength.

Suiject: Manasse7i's Sin and Repentence,
LI. Chron. xxxill., 1-13-Golden Text,
Prov. xiv., 34-Memory Verses, 10-13
-Commentary on the Day's Lesson.
I Nfanasseh's excessive ido!atries
(vs. 1-9). 1. "Manasseb." The thir
teeath King of Judah (not counting
Athiallah, the usurper), son of Heze
kIah and Hephzibah, who was tradt
tio ially the daughter of Isaiah.
"T welve years old." He was born
three years after Hezekiah was mirac
ulously restored to health. He reigned
longer than any other King of Judah
or Israel. 2. "Did-evil." He fol
lowed all the abominable practices of
the nations of Canaan, but his sin was
greater than theirs because he had
lig:it and knew about the true God. 3.
"Bialim." The plural form for Baal.
"Made grooves." "fade Asheroth."
R. V. Asheroth is one of the plural
forms of Ashrab, a heathen goddess.
Baal was a male and Asherah a female
divinity. An Asherah was probably a
wooden pole which was planted be
side an altar as a symbol of a deity.
"Host of heaven." The sun, moon and
stars. 4. "Altars in the house." He
placed the heathen altars even in the
temple. "Shall my name be." See
chapter 7: 16.
5. "In the two courts." Professor
Lumby thinks this verse 'explains the
preceding verse, and that the idola
trous altars were erected in th' courts
of the temple and not in the holy place.
6. "Through the fire." There is rea
son to believe that in certain circum
stmnces the children offered to Moloch
were actually burnt to death, or were
first slain and then burnt. See Psa.
1N: 38; Jer. 7: 31; 2 Kings 17: 31.
"Valley-of Hinnom." This was a ra
rine on the south and west of Jerusa
lem. the southeast extremity of which
had the name of Tophet. "Observed
tires." See R. V. "Practiced divina
tion by the clouds." "Enchantments."
He used incantations and charms. "Fa
miliar spirit." See 1 Sam. 2S: S. He
had in his service those who pretended
to raise the spirits. "Wizards." Wise
or knowing ones who claimed to reveal
sevrets. '%any of these impostors came
f:-am Chaldea to pursue their occupa
tions and practice their deceptions. and
Manasseh was their liberal patron.
"Much evil." The heathen rites and
ceremonies which Manasseh observed
were often of the foulest character. 7.
"Set-image." The setting up the Ash
erah within the sacred precincts is
dweit upon as the most aggravated
outraae of this wicked king. S.
"Neither will I." etc. God had prom
ised that this land should be theirs
forever (2 Sam. 7: 10). "If only" (R.
V.i All of God's promises are condi
ticnal. This condition was expressed
at the very first. Had they obeyed
Ga they would never have gone intc
eativity. but would still have been in.
possession of the promised land. 9.
"'Io do worse." Through the perni
cicus influence of Manasseh they werc
led into worse forms of sin than were
evn practiced by the original Canaan
itfs. Tradition says that under Man
asseh Isaiah was sawn asunder.
I. Manasseh's punishment (vs. 10.
1li. 10. "The Lord spake." We car
in agine the bitter grief and iburning
inignation of those who lo'ed the
God of Israel. And they were not si
lent. Ini 2 Kings 21: 10-15 we see un
nimed prophets denouncing the apos
tasy and threatening judgment in most:
:3. "King of Assyria." Assyria was
at that time under Esarhaddon.
" .mong the thorns." "In chains." R.
V. The sharp. thornlike nook by~
v di prisoners were caught and held
liie fish. ""'etters." Probably mann
ees for to hands and fetters 'or the
fe?t. "To Babylon." With this even':
Tr dalh wa added to the Assyrian Em.
:Ui. Manasseh's repentance (v. -12).
'.. "Besought the Lord." In the soli
tude of exile and imprisonment MIan
assehi had leisure for reflection. The
clamities forced on him a review of
his past life, convincing him that the
minseries of his dethronement and cap
tiity were owing to his awful and un
precedented apostasy from the God of
his fathers. "Humbled himself great
l." Afflictions are our best friends:
we' should never from upon them. In
their midst we see our nothingness.
IV. Mfanasseh's restoration (v. 131.
:. "He was entrea ted." It is impos
sile that any sinner who desires to
forsak'e sin and turn to God will be re
fused mercy, after the record of par
don from God to~ a man like 3Manassel-.
Des this not expkrin why Manasse:1
was permitted to live the life he did?
Would the Bible be the book it is if sin
were not personified by such charac
ters. andl grace personified in Jesus
Christ to meet their need? "Heard."
Though affliction drives us to God He
will not therefore rejiect us if we sir
eerely s:eek Him, for afflictions are sent
to bring us to Him. "Brought him-to
Jerusalem." When Manasseh is brought .
back to God and his duty he shall soon
be brought back to his kingdom. See
how readily God is to accept and wel
come returning sinners, and how swil t
to show mercy. Let not great sinners
despair when Mfanassehi himself, on re
pentance, found favor with God: in
him God showed forth long suffering
(1 Tim. 1: 16: Isa. 1: 18). "Manasseb.
knew-God." No precepts of his fath
er no teaching of priests and Llevites;
no act of ceremonial circumcision ncr
engaging in forms of religion: no list
ning to sermons nor reading the
Sriptures brought him this knowl
edge. He had to be brought to a posi
tion where nothing but the'almighty
lv~wer of God could deliver him. We
will bless God througn all eternity for
the dlays of trouble that lead us to
oey (P'sa. 50: 15). But how much bet
ter it is to obey ait on1ce, thus making
such afflictions unneceessary.

Ariz., has received the following let

as an illuminant for towns from a cen
tral plant, forlightinghouses, churches,
schools and isolated buildings of 1ll
kinds, and it is being used successfully
for many other purposes.
A striking and important feature of

Shoemakers Once Were Well Paid.
Thirty years ago, when all shoes
were made by hand, the shoemaker
earned a fair salary of from $12 to
$16 per week. Every shoe shop had
from five to ten shoemakers working.
Shoes and boots cost from.$8 to $15,
and they received much more repair
ing than do the shoes of to-day. Now
girls are working in the factories and
hundreds of good shoemakers are look

of the shoemakers who formerly
worked in the shops are working at
other lines of business, and making
A journeyman cobbler seldom makes
more than $8 or $9 per week.
One may wonder why it is that the
cobbler nearly always finds a mean,
dirty hole to crawl into and to call
it a repair shop. The fact is, he can
not afford to pay much rent. In the
average shoe shop in the good seasons
-spring and summer-he can do $4
worth of repairing a day, and not
more than $6 if he works in the.night
time. Four dollars per day and six
days a week make $24 per week.

Increasing Among Women, But
. Sufferers Need Not Despair
THE BEST ADVICE IS FREE
Of all the diseases known. with which
the female organism is aftlicted. kidney
disease is the most fatal, and statistics
show that this disease is on the increase
Unless earli and correct treatment is
applied the patient seldom survivcs
when once the disease is fastened upon
her. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound is the most efficient treat
ment for kidney troubles of women,
and is the only medicine especially
prepared for this purpose.
When a woman is troubled with pain
or weight in loins, backache, frequent,
painful or scalding urination, swelling
of limbs or feet, swelling under the
eyes. an uneasy, tired feeling in the
region of the kidneys or notices a brick
dust sediment in the urine, she should
lose no time in commencing treatment
with Lydia E. Pinkhains Vegetable
Compound. as it may be the means of
saving her life.
For proof, read what Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound did for Mrs.
" Icannot express the terrible suffering I
had to endure. A derangemenit of the female
organs developed nervous prostration and a
serious kidney trouble. The doctor attende'd
me for a year, but I kept getting worse, until
I was unable to do anythinz, and I made up
ry mind I could 'tt live. f tinally' dtei~dl
to trr Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Comt
pound as a last resort. and I anm to-day a well
woman. I cannot praise it too highly, and I
Itell every suffering woman about my case.'
