The success of Mrs. W. N. Sherman
and the beauty of her hospitable home,
the famous Minnewawa ranch in Cali
fornia, should be an incentive to every
woman to hold fast to the home in
stinct while winning her way in the
business world. In the face of much
opposition and caustic comment Mrs.
Sherman, soon after leaving an east
ern college, bought a large tract of un
improved land near Fresno, deter
mined by her own efforts to develop
* its possibilities.
Her success Is indicated by the fact
that Minnewawa is valued at over five
times the original investment. During
the busiest season there are over 400
people at work on the ranch and in the
cannery. Since discovering that by
personal oversight of the packing her
grapes brought from $100 to $500 more
per carload than when left to the su
pervision of others, Mrs. Sherman
very sagely concluded that a woman
can be a real helper, even though she
leave the care of the household to
some one else- Mrs. Sherman has not
confined her efforts to raisin growing

These words of the epistle express r
the important principle that wherever
there is vitality life not only adds to i
it-elf continually, but at the same time
never throws away. never entirely loses t
the essential elements that it has once
succeeded in acquiring. That is to say.1
that all the time that life is putting on5
raiment. as it were, or being "clothed
upon"-say. in the flowers. or bush or
insect or man,. for That part-all that
time it keeps the esse?tils of whatso
ever it has invested itself with. And
iz is never perfecrtly unelothed of its
fundamental gains: --not unclIthed but
clothed upon." Thes- princip'es hold
good in relation to li.e of every kind
and under all conditions. It is one of
the great 1:eys of nature that have
been furnished to us. and its univer- t
sality springs from the fact that
the universe is fundamentally similar
in all its parts. I mean to say that the
universe is constituted in such a man
ner that the different plans of being,
the physical, the intellectual, the moral.
the spiritual, all correspond to one an
other. So that whatsoever is true in
one is true in all of them. Mankind.
in fact, has aji instinct to that effect.
Our ordinary words that we me in
talking, for instance, for physical
things are mostly the same as those
used for intellectual or spiritual things.
The word. "right" means straight, and
"straight" is constantly used by us in
a moral sense; the word "wrong"
means twisted or corrupt, and "cor
rupt" often means dishonest. The
things that are seen are, that is to say,
divinely created pictures of the things
that are not seen; and it is a great
satisfaction that we can have a trust
worthy picture of spiritual things that
we can see. Our blessed Lord talked
in parables. not because parables are
simple. but because the truths ex
pressed by parables (as the loaf of
bread or the raiment or the water from
the well, or the sparrow having his
food prerstred for him. or the lily get
ting its raiment without worrying
about it) are not merely physica:
truths-you must not fall into that
blunder-they are truths that reach all
the way up tarough all the plans to
the eternal kingdom. Our Lord talked
in that way because He saw the whole
of the plan. from the top to the bot
ton. and Ie talked in no other way
to the people at large: "without a par
able snake He not unto them." The
plans. intellectual. moral and spiritual.
are reuresented in the physical, and all
of them are fundame'atally alike. That
is why He talked in parables.
Now come back to the general prin
ciple before us. "not unclothed. but
clothed upon." and let us see to it that
we have the physical and material idea
distintly in our heads. Here, for in
stance, is the stump of a tree with the
different rings of wood of which it is
composed. Year by year the tree has
put gn nw growth, .5he ouc)e
n the successive rings. But all thle
time thait it has beer. putting on the
new rings it has never c'ompletely let
go of the'6kT 6nei, and tile first ring of
all is right in the centre all the time.
Let me give' the little folk a simple il
lustration. that they may take it away
with them. Children, you turn an ap
ple on its side. Cut it down in the cen
tre through and through. Then you
have two halves, have you not? Well,
cut off from either half a slice. v-cry
thin, the thinner you cut it the better.
Then hold the slice up to the light.
Now, what do you see? You see in the
centre, distinctly, the dark outline of
the original blossom that w.as on the
apple tree in the springtime.
Nov;. take some examples of this
principle. There is the Bible, for in
stance. It is a living book. I mean by

you know that? It is coming out in

it is "an eye for an eye and a tooth for

You cannot make anything grow that

11 the plants of the universe are alike;
rowing things are all alike, whether
leas or anything else. It is of abso

Now, as opposed to both of these peo

hurch at large represents the latest

;FOR SEPTEMBER 24.
1eview of the Lessons For the Third
Quarter of the Year-Read Psa. xxxiv.,
11-22-Golden Text, Psa. exxi., 5-The
Les.son I. Topic: God's protection of
His people. Place: Jerusalem and the
Assyrian camp. Hezekiah was King
of Judah and Sennacherib of Assyria.
At this time Assyria was a great and
powerful country, and at the height of
its power. It was a mighty nation of
warriors. Nothing could stand before
the Assyrian host. They swept over
the country leaving desolation and
death behind them. Their king sent
abusive letters to lezekiah to affright
him. Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah
prayed and God destroyed their ene
II. Topic: Study of an Old Testa
ment prayer. Place: Jerusalem. Great
suffering and sickness came upon Hez
ekh~. King of Judah. The prop;het
Isaiah saw that death was the inevit
able result of such sickness only as
God interposed. Then it was that
llczekiah askcd for n',lded years, and
received prcmise of fifteen years Inore.
III. Topie: The suffering, atoning
Saviour. Place: Jerusalem. the pro
phet Isaiah's home. This is the deep
est and loftiest of the Old Testament
prophecies, and points i'learly and defi
nitely to the atonement. The life and
mission of Christ is related in few
words embracing humiliation, suffer
ing. atonement and exaltation. The
main thought is that the Servant is to
be the instrument in establishing the
true :eligion, by removing the burden
of guilt and bringing many to right
IV. Topic: The gospel's gracious call.
Place: Jerusalem. Regardless of the
mean opinions of men and their lack
of faith in the Saviour a magnificent
kingdom was founded, and to it invita
tion and joyous welcome is extended.
Jehovah's thoughts transcend those of
man as much as the heaven is higher
than the earth. The thoughts and
ways of Jehovah are His purposes of
V. Topic: Chapters in a sinful life.
Place: The kingdom of Judah, particu
larly the capital. Jerusalem. The
faith ful Hezekiah closed his life. lear
Ing his son Manasseh to reign in Judah.
By him the good work of reform was
worse than undone: the people went
into the lowest depths of wickedness.
In his mature years Manasseh was
Inade to.feel the rod of afiictiou which
led him to repentance. Then he sought
to repair some of the evils.
VI. Topic: Vital factors in a success
ful life. Place: Jerusalem and Judah.
Manasseh's effort to reform his king
dom did not produce much fruit. His
son Amon disregarded this effort on
the part of his father, and led people
on in idolatry for two years, when he
was slain by his servants in his own
house. Then his youthful son Josiah
came to the throne. He made earnest
work of destroying idol worship and
of repairing the house of the Lord.
VII. Topic: Purpose and mission of
the Bible. Place: Jerusalem. With
the neglect of the temple the people
had been without the book of the law.
In repairing the temple this book wa's
found and brought before the king.
He was greatly moved because of the
fearful disobedience of the people, and
the awful curse of God which was
pronounced upon the very sins Judab.
had committed. .He at one. sought to
know what the Lord would say unto
thm. The promise' to him was that
th e<urse should not com.e upon the
people during his life.
VIII. Topic: Trying to destroy God's
word. Place: Jerusalem. At the death
of Josiah his son, Jehoahaz reigned
three months in Judah. He was taken
by Necho to Egypt, and his brother
Jeh~iakim was made king. He reigned
eleven years and did evil in the sight
of the Lord. In the fourth year of his
reign he burned the Book of the Law.
The Lord directed the prophet JTere
miah to write another. In this were
more warnings to the people. The
king was slain, his kingdom destroyed
and~ his son carried in chains into
IX. Topic: Persecution of the right
eous. Place: Jerusalem. The kingdom
of Judah was fast hastening to its
end. The judgments of God were
about to fall upon the people. Jere
miah, the prophet, was almost alone i
standing for the right, and his life was
in constant danger. His was a mission
requiring courage, faith, strength, will.
X. Topic: Decline and fall of the
kingdom. Place: Jerusalem. Zedekiah
was the twentieth and last King of
Judab. He took no warnings from the
judgments of God which had fallen
upon the people before his reign. He
despised the warnings of the prophet
Jeremiah, and mocked the messengers
of God. Then the city was taken by
the Babylonians. The house of God
was burned, the wall about the city
broken down. the palaces were burned
and the vessels from the temple were
carried to Babylon. The sons of Zede
kiahl were slain before his eyes, and
then his own eyes were put out, and
he was carried captive to Babylon.
XI. Topic: Vision of the glorious
gospel. Place: Babylon. Ezekiel was
among the captives carried to Babylon
in the second siege against Jerusalem.
But God gave him visions of the fu
ture and how He would bless His peo
ple. Ezekiel prophesied for twenty
two years. His prophecies were a
XII. Tonic: The study of a godly
young man. Place: Babylon. Here
we learn of the beginning of the enp
tivity of Judah. Babylon was at this
timein the zenith of its power, ruling
all Western Asia and extending its au
thority to the river of Egypt. Daniel
was among the captives of the Iirst
siege against Jerusalem. He was thea

Home Mission in Mountain and Plain.
Matt. 9: 35-38; Luke 9: 1-6.
Jesus went to his own people with
his gospel, and sent out first his dis
ciples to their neighbors and country
men. This was eminently wise and
practicable. There is an element in
home missions that appeals to every
Christian. We have no sympathy with
that sentimental talk ab'out home mis
sions that has no real 'interest in any
mission work. Some people excuse
themselves from all missionary work
on the plea that we have "heathen at
home." But aside from all this there
is a special claim on us to consider
the spiritual needs and wants of our
neighbors and our own nation. The
Home Mission field is the United
States in all its length and breadth.
What the Jews were to Jesus, and
what their countrymen were to the
first disciples, so the 'inhabitants of
America are to us. We must save
America in order to save the world.
The field is wide and difficult, but
hopeful and inspiring. We have gath
ered in our home field the cosmopoli
tan races of the world. We have in
our home missions the nucleus of mis
sions to all nations of the eaifth.
Methodist home missions may be
roughly divided into two classes, the
English-speaking and the non-English
speaking. The English-speaking em
brace all the work in our Annual Con
ferences which receive help as well as
the mission work of the great North
west. The non-English-speaking in
clude the fourteen different nationali
ties to which we send missionaries in
our own land. They are the Welsh,
Swedish. Norwegian, Danish, German,
French. Spanish, Chinese, Japenese,
Bohemian, Italian, Portuguese, Filnn
ish and American Indians. Besides
the hundreds of ministers helped by
the Missionary Society in Annual Con
ferences, we have about 350 mission
aries preaching to 25,000 members,
with between 450 and '500 churches
and Sunday schools in this field.
About one-half-forty-five per cent.
of all our collections for missions go
to this home field. Many of the peo
ple converted in these home mission
fields go back to their native land
bearing the seed of a new and better
faith. Thus the home work is a
valuable feeder, and sometimes the
founder, of foreign missions. Nearly
all of our self-supportinlg work in the
West and Northwest was formerly
home mission territory. Methodist
home missions have played an Import
ant part in the development of the
A Maid of Honor Tn Fact.
The late Lady Bloomneld was a
maid of honor and published a book
of reminiscences relating some very
intimate incidents of her years at
court. The result, the London corre
spndent of the Manchester Guardian
tells, was that the queen forbade her
ladies to keep dairies while they were
in waiting, and from that rule grew
one of the neatest repartees that the
heart of the piuresional diarist could
desire. A young lady who had just
been appointed a maid of honoi- was
receiving congratulations at a party,
and her host said: "'What an inter
esting journal you can keep!" The
girl told him that journal keeping was
forbidden. andI the answer was: "But
I think I should keep one all the
same." "Then.'' said the girl, "what
ever you were you would not be a
mid of honor. -

Another Case of Tumor Cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegeta
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
"About three years ago I had intense pin
in my stomach, with cramps and raging
eadaches. The doctor prescribed for mie,
but finding that I did not get any better he
examined me and, to my surprise, declared
I had a tumor in the uterus.
"I felt surethat it meant mv death warrant,
and was very disheartened. I spent hundreds
of dollars in doctoring, but the tumor kept
growing, till the doctor said that nothing but
an operation would save me. Fortunately .
corresponded with my aunt in the New Eng
and States, who advised me to try Lydia R
Pinikham's Vegetable Compound Ieforo sub
mitting to an operation, and I at once started
taking a regmlar treatment, finding to my
great relief that my -eneral h-alth began to
improve. and after Iree monihs I noticed
that the tumor had reduced in size. I kept
on taking the Compound, and in ten months
it had entirely disappeared without an oper
ation, and using no medicine but Lydia E.
I'nkham's Vegetable Compound, and words
fail to express how grateful Iam for the good
it has done me."-Miss Luella Adams, Colon
