Famous Physician Says It Is Posi
tively Dangerous.
"Dr. Osler certainly set the country
byi the ears when he advocated chlo
ro 4orm for those who had passed t.#
tortieth milestone, but I heard him
make another statement that might
be considered fully as startling,' said
a New York merchant at luncheou
the other day. "Several years ago
.mv wife was a wreck from nervous
Cyspepsia Several prominent phy
sicians here had treated her without
success and finally I was advised to
take her to Baltimore to see Dr.
"He inquired carefully about her
habits and particularly about her
diet. We described it without going
Into details, but this did not satisfy
the great physician.
"Tell me whai you have for. dinner,
descrIbe the nature of the courses,
their number and so on," he insisted.
"Well, usually we start with some
good nourishing soup," I began.
"'Stop right there,' interrupted Dr.
Osler. 'Soup must go. There is a
popular fallacy that soup is nourish
ing. That is a mistake. It is one of the
most harmful things one can eat.
It is worse than lobster. Of course.
there are times when a simple beef
or mutton broth is not to be condem
ned. But as a rule soup is positively
dangerons. It dilutes the gastric
juices and it ferments too rapidly
to permit it to be easily digested.
It is the greatest cause of dyspepsia
and nervous disorders. Vegetable
soup should be thrown into the gar
bage pail, where it belongs, instead
of being poured into a delicate
stomach.' Half the nervous wrecks
among society folks who live well are
caused by eating scup.'
"Dr. Osler gave some other advice,
'which was followed by my wife in
addition to giving up soup. Soup i'
never served at cur table and has not
been for four years. My wife is well
and stron.g to-day, and she can eat
anything on the menu except soup."

Subject: Christlan Growth.
Brooklyn. N. Y. - The Rtev. Allau
Douglas Carlile. D. D.. who has re
ceived a unanimous call to the pastor
ate of the Throop Avenue Presbyterian
Church, in this borough. made vacant
by the death of Dr. Louis Ray Foote
in December last, preached for the first
time to the congregation of that church
Sunday morning, le is now the pastor
of the Tabernacle Presbyterian Church
in Pittsburg. Pa.. where he is highly
esteemed. The subject of his discourse
was "Christian Growth." His text was
II. Peter iii:38: "But grow in grace. and
in the knowledge of our Lord and Sa
viour. Jesus Christ," and he said:
' In the Greek the article is before the
noun in both cases: "Grow in the grace
and the !:nowledge." Grace is defined.
theologically and abstractly, as "God's
loving favor; unmerited by us." The
"grace" of our text is definite and spe
cific: '"the grace of our Lord Jesus."
and, for our purpose this morning, may
be taken as the sum total of the graces
that make up Christ's matchless char
acter, our development in Christ's like
ness, and not by the acquisition .of new
graces, but by a growth of those with
in us already received. Growth. nor
mal growth. is nece.sary to health; if
life be checked it argues serious mal
ady. Christian maturity is nothing
short of Christ-likeness. This we have
not yet attained; until we do there can
be no more important question than:
Are we growing at a normal r'ate?
Are we better than our fathers? Is
the Church to-day better than the
Church of the Reformation? Or in the
Apostolic day? Perhaps you doubt the
possibility of such a thing. But mark
how it grew from Pentecost to John.
and then remember that we have the
same things before us still undone. We
have the same spirit of God torguide
us. and we have had 1800 yeara more
time. Would it not rather seriously re
Iect upon us if we had not advanced
upon them? In the days of Ahab, the
darkest period in history. Elijah- want
ed to die because he was no better
-than his fellows.
In the church. as in nature. there is a
twofohl growth: One from without
and the other from within. From with
out the development of what I call cor
poration in numbers aMd it wealth and
in the consequent influence upon the
world which it has gained in the same
way and maintained for the same ren
son as any other world power. The in
ward growth is deveopment from the
heart outward; growth of character,
and, necessarily, a growth- of indi' d
ual character. The development of the
church in character only through the
development 'of the individual charac
ter. For the church is like other cor
porations; it has no character apart
from its members, and it depends upon
the perfection of each several member
for its perfection. One. you see. is
growth in. bulk, the othei in character
-one of the corporation. of the corpor
ation Indeed. but only by the growth
of- the individual, and one is the re
building of the temple of God. One is
the progress of the kIngdom of God
wherein we have a citizenship, and the
other the progress of the kingdom of
God, which is within you. The first
wve read of constantly. the second we
hear of rarely. The last is the most
important and the less continuous in
this our day. I do not wish to be mis
understood. I glory in the outward
growth of the church and the mighty
works done for Christ in the world, but
all our works mean nothing beyond the
w'itewashing of the outside of the sep
ulchre. save only in so far as they are
the natural and inevitable evidence of
the working of a God-like character.
Are we growing in character at a nor
mal rate? We know -the standard.
Christ gave it the parable of the tares
and the wheat: tares and wheat grow
ing side by side, but further and fur
ther apart. So are the church and the
world growing together, but more and
more unlike until the >"rvest. At sow
ing time. even, was niot the dividing
line clearly marked? Is it so to-day?
If not it shows change of character on
one side or the ot:1er. Which~ is it?
You ask: Is not this spiritual develop
ment of so subtle a character-that we
can hope for its continuance even
though not recognized in ourselves or
others? FHow can there be change of
character wvithout a corresponding
change of life? Look back to the sow
ing time, when to cross the dividing
life meant martyrdom. We have a
harder task to perform than any inar
tyr had who died for Christ. There are
hundreds here to-day who would do
that. It; is not hard to die for Christ.
but I tell you it is hard to live for
Christ: to plod on day by day on our
unheroic way. persistently, consistently
living with God in this workl And
that is your task and mine. Get the
character that will enable you to do
that ang ,vou may let the works take

What would there be left? A babe is
perfect. but it is only a perfect baby.
I once knew a beautiful child. the de
light and .ioy of the household, but,
alas: She grew up to the age of twen

of twenty is ai moustrosity. And is N

Thea "Grow in grace and in the know1

necessary: The spirit of God in cur

peril to think that all truth is in our
creed and that what is not written
there is wrong. For that stops ad

gress in Christ's knowledge and grace
and means - declension.- oss. Christ
taught the truth and did not formulate
it. The apostles enlarged upon it to

the early fathers systematized truth

Renaissance. until we found the truth.
not by ecclesiastical dictum. but in ef
feet it was the same. I have seen old
peonle so under the domination of
their ecclesiastical conumentator that
they could see nothing in the Bible but
wh::t he taught.
But as I read the signs of the time
the church to-day is cu the eve of an
dvancenient in the knowledge of
Jesus Christ unequalled in her listory.
You and I want a part in that. 1 know
some of 'my ministerial brethren do not
so read: they *listen to the jarring
voices of to-day: "Down with the Bi
ble. Lop off lump after lump and give
us love in a mighty principle." which is
but a sentimentality. That is not what
God means. We are at the headwaters
of a -mighty. flowing river. which is yet
bubbling and has not become deep and
calm and still. Put it will, and when
it does we shall have more truth. not
;ess. Be sure of that. Our creeds
ought to gather up in themselves all
the truth that is in Christ .Tesus per
petually, just as He gathers up in Him
self the "fulness of the godhead bodi
ly." Their confusion is like a puzzle
picture frcm whili some pieces are
lst. It is your duty. and mine. to tind
the pieces and put them in their proper
paces until our creed becomes a per
feet pen picture of the God-man. When
it does. we shall have a creed on which
every lover of the God-man will stand
omfortably. It will be that way in
heaven. It shall he that way on earth.
Don't you want a hand in that? How?
Not only for your own sake. but for
the world's sake and the church's sake.
"Grow in grace and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour. Jesus Christ."
How? Simply by the use of the
means of grace which Christ instituted
for that very purpose: by the public
ministry of 1he Wor-d. by private inter
-ourse with Jesus, by your right use of
the Word of God. by those activities
for which you tina channels not only

Yrom a "Child" Text-Commentary.
I. A question asked (v. 1).
1. "At the same time." After Peter
had reiurnEd from paying the tribute.
"Came the disciples." By combining
the three amcutzs we learn that the
disciples had discussed the <question as
to who should be the greatest. an'l
that Jesus. knowing their ambitions,
had opened the subject by asking them
about the dispute they had among
themselves by the way. At first the
disciples, thoroughly ashanied. were
silent, but a little later they came and
submitted the questiou to iim. "Who
is the greatest-' Such is blind human
nature; always desiring to be made
prominent. "Ii the kingdom of heav
en." They still view the kingdom of
Christ as a temporal one.
II. Lessons from a little child (vs.
2-5). 2. "Called a little child." J'sus
purposes to teach them by means of an
object lesson. He corrects their faise
ideas about greatness. The 'ittle child
was their teacher.
3. "Verily." A word that denotes
the importance of what is to follow.
"Excent ye be converted." The word
here fendered "be converted" means
"turn about so as to face in the other
direction." It always signifies a radi
cal and complete change. "And become
ais little children." Humble. teachable.
obedient. "Ye shall not enter." They
not only could not be first. but they
could not enter. There is no way into
the kingdoom of grace only by the door
of humility. 4. "Whosoever." Ai
have equal privileges. "Shall humble
himself." None but the lowly are in
the kingdom. and the lowlicst in the
kingdom are the greatest. "The same
is :;reatest." Sellishnes. is the root of
all sin. True humility is the surest
mark of true greatness.
.i. "Whoso shall receive." That is.
stal show kindness to..shall help and
ere for. "One such little child." This
refers not only to actual children (Luke
:48m. but also to Christ's followers who
hve a humhle, hildlike spirit. "In
MNy name." Out of love .o Me and for
\iy sake. "Rec'eiveth Me." Jesus -(o;I
siders Himself treated as we treat His
little ones.
II. Christ's teaching concerning of
fenses (vs. C-9). 6. "Shall olTend."
Whoso shall cause one of .1y little
ones to stumble and fall into sin. "It
were better." This shows the great
ness of the offense. "That a millstone."
A very large stone. "Aboqt Ills nek."
etc. Drowning in Vie sea was a pun
ishment used among ihe ancients. 7.
-.Wce unto the world." Or. alas for
the world. "Because of occasions of
stumbling' (R. V.) Because there are
so many temptations and stumbling
blocks put before men. "It must needs
be." In this world. that is so full of
sin and wickedness. those who serve
Christ will be tempted. "Woe to that
man through whom the occasion com
eth" (I. V.) Woe to the man who is
guilty of the awful crime of leading
thers into sin. Each man is personally
resnonsible for his oivn acetions. 8.
"If' thy hand-foot causeth thee to
stublle" iR. V.) -1f objects as dlear to
thee as these most valuable and pr'e
dons members of the body cause thee
to stumble anld to fall into slu. "Cut
them off." etc'. The pleasing thing if
burtful. mnust be given up and re
nounced. "Into life halt." The only
one who renounces a sulccessful life
ere bylgivingt up a profitable business
because of its. wvorldlly character. or by
giving up a pleasing and profitable oc
upation because it cannot be followed
to the glory of God, and who accept
poverty and hardship. may he said to
enter into life "halt or maimed." but
it is better to do this than to lose eter
nal life.
9. "-Into the hell of fire" (R. V.) The
literal (.ehenna was a valley to the
south of Jerusalem, a former scene of
Moloch worship. arl later tile place
where the refuse of the city was
burned with perpetual fires. This fire
is the symnbolof terrible torment, which
is awaiting tihe ii nally3' impeniitenlt.
IV. Christ's care for His little ones
(vs. 10-14). JO. "Despise not." As
though they were beneath your notice.
"Little ones." Children; therefore the
weakest and most lowtly of those who
believe in Christ. "In heaven their aum
gel." The angels in heaven, who he
hold the face of the Father, have a pe
culiar charge over them. 11. This
verse is omitted from the Revised Vet'
sion, but if it does not be.ong here. it
certainly belongs elsewhere, for Jesus
came to save sinners. 1:2. "One
gone astray." This parable is given
more fully in Luke 15:10. The lost
sheep is a type of one straying away
from the fold of Christ into sin. 1:3.
He rejoiceth mnore. That sheep was ot
no more value than the other sheep. it
was its "rescue" that ('aused the joy.
14. "Even so." Our heavenly Fath
er has done all that He can do to br'ing
ll men to repentance: it Is not His
will that any should perish.
