One of his anecdotes was

crow, feigning lameness. appeared on
the edge of the nest with open mouth
and claimed a share of the meal. The
robin looked the intruder over, picked
up a bit of dead twig that resembled
a worm, and hastily thrust it into his
throat. The crow was so greedy that
he nearly choked to death before he
realized that he had been deceived. I

A BRILLIANT SUNDAY SERMON BN
THE REV. W. H. BURCWIN.
Subject: Sowina aud rfeapina.
Er.okiyn. N. Y.-For the ilst ser
mon in his series on "The Substance
of Christia:n Doctrine" the Rev. W. H.
Burgwin. pastor of the Eighteenth
,Steet M. E. Church. preached Sun
day inorning on "Sowing and Reap
ing." His text was chosen from Gal
latians xi:7-8: "Be not deceived; God
is not mocked; for whatsoever a -manl
soweth. that shall he also reap. For
he that soweth to thie flesh shall of
the flesh reap corrupt, '; but he that
soweth to the spirit , !I of the spirit
real) life everlasting.'' Mr. Burgwin
Our statement of the substance of
Christian doctrine in the four preced
ing discourses has presented the Crea
tor of all things as a merciful and
bountiful Provider for- His creatures.
Man, because of unique relationships
to God, is the object of His particu
lar and peculiar favor. Insisting that
'All have sinned and come short of
the glory of God." the divine love
finds a way to satisfy inlfinite justice
and to redeem for eternity every sin
ner who will be saved. The nature of
the sinner, as created, precludes the
idea or the possibility of compulsion.
There is. however, a too general ten
dency to discount Scriptural teachings
-to feel that God, having done so
much for man, will do more, that, in
some way, a comfortable and blissful
future is assured us. even though un
belief and disobedience mark our con
duct here. The apostle combats such
a conception. Jesus Himself contra
dicts it: "Ye cannot serve God and
Mammon." The Scriptures uniformly
oppose 1t by precept and example.
It is my task this morning to en
force this thought: All men are re
deemed by Christ; but we are not
saved from our guilt and its fixed
penalty until ,ve are in accord with
Christ and the divine plan. What the
sowing is the harvest will be. This
is the truth as taught us.
Our text is a warning-an unmistak
able danger signal. This warning is
given i'- view of real dangers appar
ent to all observers of human nature.
It assures us that God does not make
spiritual or moral paupers of men.
Men cannot be redeemed without God;
but, in the divine economy. God does
not save the man without the man
himself. The man, in additioa to
God's work. must work out his own
salvation. For man there is a sowing
and there is a reaping. There is good
seed for sowing in moral and spirit
ual soil; there is other seed which de
velops degraded human character.
Man selects his own seed and sows it.
The seed proceeds to follow the law
of nature. It brings forth after its
kind-noisome weeds or golden grain.
It is an eternal harvest of "corrup
tion" or of "everlasting life." Even
if man be deceived, God is not mocked.
This Scripture warns us that every
mortal has freedom to direct his own
career within well known fields, for
good or evil. Above the human actor
is the Divine Governor, who will not
compel human loyalty, but who, rul
ing in more extensive fields than the
merely finite and human, invariably
directs the mortal to the future his
own freedom has chosen, to the reap
ng of the harvest his own life has
own. Thus it is clear that man's
estiny is in his own control.
It becomes apparent that this uni
rersal governor in. administering his
;overnment is not anarchic. He is the
supreme exponent of order and law;
Ee, the arch-opponent of confusion.
All disorder tends to confusion. in
:articular as in universal dominion.
i'he human sinner is a begettor of
:onfusion :n that he interferes with
law and order. He thus challenges
the divine wisdom, power and will.
He is a rebel against the Creator and
Ruler of all things. Were all nature
to follow him, the original chaos and
aarchy would prevail in ll realms.
[erfect order in human life would
bring man to the perfect destination
for which he was originally designed.
1:at perfect order becenmes a real fact
for man through .Tesus Christ. who is
the exemplar of that order, "Who His
own self bare our sins in His own
body on the tree, that we, being dead
to sin, should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed." If
we encourage sin in our lives, if we
o not persistently resist the devil, we
re sowing accursed seed: wve are nor
ead to sins, we do not live unto right
ousness: consequently, that perfect
>rder is not an actualUity for us, though
t remains a possibility, because of the
ivine mercy and our ability to sow
he sced of repentance, by God's help.
f we will,
Evidently, then. the glorious destin
tion ot man as desc'ribed in Scripture,
bringing the creature back to his lost
estate, where he is conformed to the
mage of Him who is the expr'ess
mage of God's substance, is not an
rbitrary goal to which every creature
ove wvhether or no. The attainment
f that destination is a matter of
hoice and decision on the part of the
reature-that decision and choice in
icating his accord with the will and
plan of the Creator. Man has ai goal.

him, the "life ev-erlasting" of our text,
toward which it is his - personal re

In their reasonings and speculationis

Ishment, but that finally they will be
annihilated, utterly destroyed; that
there will be a future probation, an op
portunity beyond the grave to accept
the divine mercy. All of this is at
tractive as speculation. The truth is,
there >is o adequate warrant in the
Holy Scriptures for any such hopes.
God says. 'Be not deceived.' God in
sit that the eternal life is a hatr
ret follo1wing a seed sowing.
In p:-acti(c, too, there are dlangerouls
the ories. for "as a man thinketh in
hi hlea'r, so is he." If he makes him
self believe that everything is comimg
duct, his belief will affect his conduct.
If a man argues himself to feeling that
if God cannot receive him into heav
enly realms. He will put him out of
his misery. annihilate him, the te-m
dency will be for him to throw himself
into the flood of activity. whatever its
character, which riromises him the futl
est and most satisfactory return to his
present selfish ambition. Such atti
tudes of mind. with their baneful re
suits, are all too common. The thought
of the judgment of God in absolute
equity in the eternal existence of the
soul is a most admirable and effective
check upon all such human presunip
tion. Well may we pray with th
Psalmist, "Keep back thy servant also
from presumptuous sins; let them not
have dominion over me."
The baneful results referred to have
illustrations in every field of endeavor.
In no other way can I account for the
astonishing attitude of people whom
I am meeting ofteu-not bad. vicious
people, either-but folks who are utter
ly careless and indifferent in relation
to this duty or that; the moral and
religious instruction of their children.
Sabbath ob;ervance, the payment of
bills due. the speaking of the unblem
ished truth, the holding of malice
against fellow Christians; In perfect
calmness men w.ll argue in extenuation
of any sin in the catalogue. Then,
there is a popular feeling that a man
to get along must have a "pull." Char
acter. ability, the whole moral and
practical capacity of the individual, are
discounted. This feeling is so current
that you may hear it expressed any
where. It has come to me recently
from different sources, in one ease ex
pressed by a man, in the other by a
woman. In both instances. children
are being reared. reared and- trained
by professed Christians in that atmos
phere. Most emphatically, I resent
and condemn s-.1eh an attitude on tl
part of any. especially Christians. It iS
specious, vicious. disastrous. "Pull
may secure place among men. but
character and ability only bring honor.
Some men may be tardy in recognizin
worth. Go& is not. His judgments
are based on character. Again, in busi
ness it has come to pass that too often
any legal mean; is considered justifia
ble. "According as you put soieting
in, the greater will be your dividends
of salvation," one man of enormous
vealth and extensive business inter
es, is reported to have said. That
"something" which you put in is not
money, or words, or deeds. These. one
or all. may be a symbol of that "some
tking." The thing put in must be a
self-surrender to God, an acceptance
of the-Divine will as our standard of
conduct. If M::. Rockefeller is desti
tute of this disposition of moral self
surrender, all his great gifts are not
sufficient to win Divine approval.
None can buy the gift of God. God is
too rich to sell, and man is too poor to
buy. Any man's gifts may indeed be
come an obstacle to favor with God
in that they may promote a conceit of
self-righteousness such as certain an
cient Pharisees had. It is worse than
useless for a man to make the church
his hobby if he gouges his fellow-men
in business every chance he gets. -Be
not deceived." Remember the harvest
and be heedful of the sowing.
There are men active in Dolitical life,
professed Christians, who, according to
rumor-in some instances the rumor
has been proved fact in court-are the
recipients of peculiar favors popularly
known as "graft." It's custom. Oth
ers do it. they say. Yes, and it's il
legal, dishonest.; it's perjury, too. Sec
retary Bonaparte does well to insist
that this species of dishonesty is a
grave menace to the nation. The book
says, "Be not dleceived." I speak to
young men. Some of you may hold
political position, as you now hold busi
ness places of responsibility. I speak
forcefully, for I know your possible
temptations. Abhor any moral com
promise in politics, in Dusiness or in
social life. The man who leads a
double life is a doomed man. He may
not be condemned to prison by a jury
of his peers; his integrity may escape
question because of prevailing laxity
or personal shrewdness. But, "Be not
deceived' God is not mocked." "Be
sure your sin still find you out." All
souls reap, gathering as they have
sown. Thank God, there are men,
many of them here and everywhere,
who are above reproach. May their
So wve deceive ourselves. In our self
deeiv ed state, we may find a sort of
comfort; we are with the crowd; cur
chances are as good as another's: we'll
turn over a new~ leaf, now or hereafter.
"God is not mocked." We cannot treat
God contemptuously, as we may our
fellows. As truly as seed brings a like
harvest, so trr.iy our derision of God
resolves itself into despair. The insult
to Deity always reverts to the insulter.
Men must not find comfort in the
thought that such willful disorder on
their part can produce order hereafter.
If the sowving he sin, disorder, the rceap
Iing must be confusion.

greatest conceivable opportunity. but

The joy of resisting temptation is the
highest joy men can feel. It is a uo

INTERNATIONAL LESSON COMMENTS
FOR OCTOBER 8.
Sublject: Daniel in the Lion's Den, Dan.
vi., 10-23-Golden Text, Psa. xxxi-t., 7
--.Memory Verses, 21-23-Commeutary
on the Da 's Lesson.
I. Daniel praying (v. 10).
10. "When Daniel knew," etc. Ian
iel knew that the king's edicts were
irreversible. "Open-toward Jer isa
lem." This was not an act of super
stition, but a recognition of Gods
promise to Solomon (1 Kings S:35.44),
who had in his prayer at the dedica
tion of the temple entreated God to
hear the prayers of those who m.ght
be in strange lands or in captivity
when they should turn their faces. to
ward their own land and city and the
temple. It was an aid to the spirit of
devotion. "Kneeled." Compare 1
Kings 8:54; Ezra 9:5; Eph. t:14.
Kneeling is a fitting attitude for hum
ble prayer. "Three times a day." See
Psa. 55:17. The three hours of preyer
were the same as the hours of sacr.fice
in the temple. "As he did aforethie."
He did not swerve a hair's breadth.
He could have prayed in secret and
been heard, but that course would lave
been a public confession of wan% of
faith in God and of yielding to the en
emy. Daniel sinply went on his daily
path of life, as if no such order had
been given. There was no time -when
he needed *o pray more than at this
II. Wicked men plotting (vs. 1115).
11. "These men." The princes who
had been plotting against Dailel.
"Assembled." Ran hastily, so as to
come upon Daniel suddenly and detect
him in the act. They had heard his
voice and now rushed in upon him.
12. "Law-which altereth not." It
was quite common in ancient times to
worship the king. To alter the law
would be a confession of fallibility,
and an abrogation of godhead.
13. "That Daniel." etc. The accus
ers do not mention the high official sta
tion of Daniel and his intimate official
relations with the king, but merely re
fer to his foreign birth in order that
they may thereby bring his conduct
under the suaspicion of being a political
act of rebellion against the royal au
thority. 14. "Sore displeased." Vexed
at tLus being overreached; for he saw
that it was enmity toward Daniel and
not anxiety for the maintenance of his
authority which had led to the plot.
"Labored." Endeavoring to find some
way to evade the execution of the sen
tence. 15. "Know. 0 king." Their
tone was materful now, for they felt
able to compel the king to work iheir
will. Kings are the slaves of 1heir
ilatterers. Tnese wicked men were
determined to get rid of the holy Dan
Ie]. They hated him.
III. Daniel among the lions (vs. 16
18). 16. "They brought Daniel." Ac
cording to Oriental custom the sen
tence was carried out on the evening
of the same day in which the accusa
tion was made. "Thy God-will de
liver." The heathen believed in the
interposition of the gods in times of
calamity. While Dariis did not rec
ognize Daniel's God as the true God,
yet he was "a god," and Daniel's char
acter was such th-t thel king believed
his God would deliver him. 17.
"Sealed it." In the days when very
few could read or write signets were
used instead of writing the name. 18.
"Passed the night fasting." The soul
of the pleasure-loving king was so
stirred that he had no care for focod or
sleep. His grief was greatly increased
by his consciousness that this evil
came from his own weakness and sinm.
IV. Daniel's deliverance (vs. 19-23).
19. "Went in haste." A strange spec
tacle for a monarch of the world thus
to be attending upon a condemned ser
vant of God. Yet the king had never
appeared to such a good advantage.
20. "Lamentable voice." Deeply dis
tressed and in an agony of anxiety.
He cried out between hope and fear.
''Servant of the living God." Darius
borrowee. this phrase from D.iel.
God extorted from an idolater a con
fession of the truth. "Is thy God
able." Full of concern, he trembles to
ask the questio'n, fearing to be an
swered with the roaring of the lions
after more prey. 21. "0 king, live
forever." The common salutation in
addressing a king. Daniel might have
indlulged in angser at the king, but did
not. His sole thought was that God's
glory had been set forth in his de:iver
ance. 22. "Seat His angel." Daniel
had company in the den of lions. There
wams no music nor gladness in the pal
ace, but celestial joy in the intercourse
betwveen Daniel and tile angel in the
den. Daniel takes care to ascribe his
deliverance to time living God, that He
may not be confounded with the false
gods of time heathen. He speaks c f the
angel as God's instrument, not the au
thmor of his deliverance. "Shut: the
lions' mouths." Angels had held the
lions' jaws and paws and made them
peaiceable companions and harmlEss as
doves. Trhis was a new and wonderful
exberienlce for Daniel. He delighted
to relate it to the king, whose voice be
trayed his agony. "lInnocency was
found.'' Ey this wonderful deliver
anee Daniel learned how God esti
mated faithfulness and how He is
plea:sed to reward it. God had shown
Daniel that his disobedience to a
heathlen kitng was not sin. He had
been faithful in what he believed to
be right., and in the test God declared
him innocent by his wonderful deliv
er'ance. "No hurt." Daniel had been
misreprese::ted before the king as hay
in:g evil designs against his authority,
but to the king himself Danhie de

GEESE CATCH HIS FISH.
Scotchman's Simple and Unique La.
"An old Scotchman and neighbor of
mine," said a resident of Greenwood
Lake, "has a method of taking fresh
water fish which, to my way of 3.hink
ing, excels all others for the ease, re
pose and success with which it 1:; con
ducted. The fisherman desire:;, we
will say, a mess of bass, pickerel or
pike, with which the waters are amply
stocked. Well, he simply goes '.o his
barnyard and selects a big gomte, or
half a dozen geese, as the case may
be, and ties a baited line about fi
feet long to their feet.
"On reaching the edege of the Ia'

geese. the fisherman turns the bit

Fought Duel With Water.
Very absurd was a duei which was
fought not long ago in front of the
railway station at Antwerp. Two bur
gesses of Liege, after a day's sightsee
ing. adjourned to a cafe for refresh
ment, and there began a dispute which
led to hot words and finally to blows.
Nothing but blood could efface the
mutual insults, but as no deadly wea
pons were available the cafe proprie
tor suggested that the affair could be
just as well settled with douchcs, and
he provided each combatant with a
portable waterpipe. For several min
utes the duelists leveled their chilly
weapons at each other; until, diench
ed to the skin, their passions were so
effectually cooled they were glad to
shake hands and rush away to change
intelligence vs. Docility.
Will people who talk about dogs
ever learn to differentiate between in
telligence and docility? The word
"intelligent" is used almost universal
ly in talking and writing, when peo
ple mean docility; I. e., the readiness
of the animal to accept instruction,
says Joseph A. Graham in Outing.
Now, as in hum- beings, docility is
likely to be an evidence of second
rate intelligence, and the degree of
intelligence is likely to appear when
the animal is doing things on his own
hook. It makes no great difference,
but to the man who tries to think
accurately the constant parade of an
obedient animal as one of exceptional
mental ability is painful.

All women work; some in their
homes, some in church, and some in
the whirl of society. And in stores,
mills and shops tens of thousands are
on the never-ceasing treadmill, earning
their daily bread.
All are subject to the same physical
laws; all suffer alike from the same
physical disturbance, and the nature of
their duties, in many cases, quickly
drifts them into the horrors of all
kinds of female complaints, ovarian
troubles, ulceration, falling and dis
placements of the womb, leucorrhcea,
or perhaps irregularity or suppression
of "monthly periods," causing back
ache, nervousness, irritability and
Women who stand on their feet all
day are more :susceptible to these
troubles than others.

strengthen the female organism and
enable them to bear easily the fatigues
of the day, to sleep well at night, and
to rise refreshed and cheerful.
How distressing to see a woman
struggling to earn a livelihood or per
form her household duties when her
back and head are aching, she is so
tired she can hardly drag about or
stand up, and every movement causes
pain, the origin of which is due to
some derangement of the female or
