man or his beast Into service for the
purpose of carrying them and their
baggage on their journey. 42. 'Give
-turn not thou awal." T11nis cannot
mean that an industrious man is to give
at the call of every idler, but it does
mean that we are to be large-bearted.
generous, ready to help others and
grant favors. We are here exhorted to
patience and forgiveness, 1. When we
receive in our persons all sorts of in
sults and affronts (V. 39). 2. When
we are despoiled of our goods (v. 40).
3. When our bodies are forced to un
dergo all kinds of toils, vexations and
tormnts (v. 41). He that avenges him
self must lose the mind of Christ and
thus suffer an injury far greater than
he can ever receive from man.
III. On loving enemies (vs. 43-48).
43, "Love thy neighbor." The rabbis
interpreted the command, "Thou shalt
love' thy neigh r as thyself," In Lev.
19:18, as referrn g to Jews only. They
therefore believed It to be right to hate
the rest of mankind. 44. "But I say."
Jesus opposed this narrow, wicked
view of the case and "extended our
neihborhood over all mpnkind." See
Luke 10:25-37. "Love your enemies."
(Rom. 5:5). It has been said that this
one precept is a sufficient proof of the
holiness of the gospel- on those who call
down upon you God's curses. "The
best commentary on these matchless
counsels is the bright example of the
One who gave them. See 1 Pet. 2:21
24: Rom. 12:20, 21; 1 Cor. 4:12; 1 Pet.
45. "Mafy be the children," etc. To
act as Christ commands here would be
to act like Cod, who blesses those who
curse Him and are His enemies by the
gifts of sun and rain. This Is divine.
"Sun to rise," etc. He imparts to all
alike, but all do not receive alike.
4f. "What reward." If you haye
only loved those who love you, you
have only come up to the standard of
common sinners. "Publicans." Tax'
gatherers employed by the Romans
and hated by the Jews.
47, "Brethren only." The promin
ence of salutation in, the social life of
the East gives a special vividness to
this precept. To utter the formal,
"Peace be with you." to follow that up
with manifold compliments and wishes
was to recognize those whom men sa
ted as friends and brothers. But
this the very heathen did ("heathen,"
rather than "publicans." being the true
reading); and were the followers of
Christ to be content with merely copy
ing heathen customs? Christians must
do to their enemies what the heathen
did to their friends. "What do ye
more than others." 1. Disciples have
to do more than others. i1) They main
tain the Christian life: (2) they extend
the cause of Christ. 2.: They are able
to do more than others. (1) They are
in alliance with God; (2) they have
more moral power. 3. More is expect
ed of them than of others. (1) By Teir
Saviour: (2) by the world: (3) by their
own consciences. 48. 'JBa-perfect."
Complete: perfect in love. Take God
as the model instead of publicans.
The bitterness of our way may be the
best part of His wisdom. - -

A Christlike Life.-Phil. -2. 5-8.
The passage from the Philippian let
ter which is used as the Scripture les
son is 5yne of the greatest utterances
of the apostle. It has been the inspir
ation of numberless sermons, and of
treatises not a few. Much attention
is given to the doctrine of the "Ken
osis"- Christ's giving up all of the
glory and power which he laid aside
when he became. a man. Great stress
is laid on the 'infinite humility of our
Lord. These things are of very great
But, after all, they are not at the
heart of this Scripture. The chief
thing is that Christ set up a new
standard of life. Instead of choosing
to rule, and to enjoy, and to be served,
he became subject to others and chose
to suffer, and made himself a 'servant
Why? Not merely because all that
was necessary to hi~s work. . Rather,
because always and everywhere ser-v
ice is a greater thing than possessions,
or power, or pleasure, or ease.
His life was not a humble one just
ta show us how far G~od could stoop.
It was humble because no other life -
can be made Godlike. In it there was
no needles pain, no humiliation in or:
der to win sympathy. What Christ
was, and did, and suffered, he could
not have avoided, without losing his
power to save. -
This, we must all confess, is not the
standard of men. It is scarcely ac
cepted even by many Christians. We
are very much under the spell of the
heathen idea that getting is the su
preme business of life. We are not
quite willing to take Christ literally
when he tells us that the only worthyj
geting is a getting in order to give.
He did not count even so great a dis
tinction as equality with God a thing
to be sought, but he gave every ener
gy of his soul to the work of getting
onto the same level with men.
This is Christ's law. He spoke it
by his life, with the high- eloquence
of perfect deeds. He urged it on the
disciples when he told them that they
were to reverse the Gentile ideal, and
to find their greatness in se'rving, not
in getting. Have we learned the las
son? We must get to give; we dare
not get for the sake of getting, for
that is the heathen way, and we are
WASHING MADE EASY.
Washing is the very hardest part
of the house work. No woman should
attempt to do it in the cid way. One
of the best managers ih ever saw
taught me her- way; she says it les
sens the work at least one-half. It
is thus: Sort the clothes the even
ing before -they are to be washed.
and put the white clothes in clear
water to scakt. In the morning put
the boiler on the stove and fill it half
full of water which will usually take
two bucket fulls. Put two- heaping
tablespoonfuls of gold dust washing
powder and two tablespoonnis of
kerosene in a vessel, add half a gal
lon of water and let it bail a few
minutes. until it forms an emulsion.
Pour this into the bciler, have the
fine white clothes through a wringer
and put them in the water. Let
them boil 15 minutes. stirring occas
sionally to allcw the suds to pene
trate to all parts alike. Then lift
them out of the tub put a little more
emulsion into the boiler and boil
the second lot of clothes. The first
lot will need no more rubbing, but
can he rinsed, starched and hung
out to dry.
Save some of the clean suds or pre
pare more in the same way for the
colored clothes, but of course, they
g'ioud not be boiled. There will bc
no disagreeable odor when dry. This
energetic housewife had her clothes
all washed and hung out to dry by
ten or eleven o'clock then prepared
her dinner. I locamd at her in
amazeent. but she taught me many
helpful me'.hods. -Jane, :n India'ua
