Errors About the White House.

Another of the errors in the arti

White House to make it beautifully
I noticed this especially because I
have used considerable paint myself,

building, when all painters know that

It so happened also that i knew

White House, because I had just read
a booklet published by a firm of

Now while a woman is apt to sur

with sentiment, it is a fact that men,
as a rule, have no sentiment what
ever about money. To have to make

another necessity, unconnected with
"feeling." A man does not pay out
money for a barrow because he loves

cause the hardware dealer needs the
money to carry on his business, nor
because he ought to give some comi
pensation for the harrow when he
benefits by it. He pays for it because
he wants the harrow and can't get it
in any other way, It's business. Now
running a household is business, a:t

humiliations to a woman, and need
less irrita'tion to a man, is to have
an allowance for necessary expenses.

A SCHOLARLY SUNDAY SERMON BY
DR. W. S. LEWIS.
Sabicet: The Secret of the Lord.
Brooklyn, N. Y.-President W. S.
Lewis, D. D., of Morningside College,
Sioux City, Ia., is the vacation
preacher in the Hanson Place M. E.
Church. He began his services there
Sunday morning and had a good au
-ience. He is an excellent preacher.
His subject was "The Fear of the
Lord." The text was from Psalm
xxv.:14: "The secret of the Lord is
with them that fear Him, and He
will show them His covenants." Dr.

the atmosphere in which they live. A

may fail to represent its highest and
best meaning to those born in .anoth
er age and under other skies. Alany
years have flown since this word was
spoken, and at least one of these in
the text needs a word of explanation
--fear. The good Book says: "The
fear of the Lord is the beginning of
wisdom," but reference is made in
the New Testament to the fact that
per. et love casteth out fear. Thanks
to the cross, the broken tomb, the de
scent of fire which spoke on cloven
tongue, for-a changed atlmosphere, in
which our text may read: "The secret

The problem of knowledge is not
that, but how, it is. A few small
philosophers have doubted the fact
that they knew, but that is carrying
doubt to the point of insanity. We
know, and we know we know; the
how that we know is the problem.
That an idea may be passed from one
mind to another, may even by crys
tallized into a word and remain pent
up there from century to century, to
break forth into another mind, to be
reflected on, and on, through the
ages. How this is, is more than we
know. How that the mind may get
a voice from the rocks so that the
mountains shall speak and make
themselves understood, and from the
sky and from the sea. We know they
speak, but how? That is the ques
tion. Do you think that God, who
has expressed His love in flower, in
brook, in sky, should have exhausted
all His resources to make Himself
known as He speaks from nature?
God speaks to the heart, the inner
world is His realm. This is I-s
throne, and He leaves His secrets
there to become the seed of thought,
of inspiration and of action. The
great problem of hearing His word
and then to translate it through the
tongue, the finger tips and footprints,
so that it shall become the living
word to other folks, is the problem of
To whom will God speak? We
raise this question to answer It by
asking you to whom do you commit
the secrets of your heart? Do you
tell those who revile you, who have
no faith in you, who speak ill of you?
Do you tell these the secrets of your
heart? It's a great thing to be a
friend, to know how to awaken the
spirit of friendship in others. To
whom do you commIt your secrets?
The first quality of friendship Is the
capacity for faith. You cannot trust
those in whom you do not believe.
You cannot Inspire in them the first
note of friendship. The captious
critic has no friends. The teacher
who asks his pupil the hardest ques
tions and criticises him because he
fails to answer; the preacher who be
gins his service and ends it with a
spirit of critfcism, will not awaken
in the heart the deepest, the best in
spirations. We must begin by say
ing: "I believe in you." We must
have the capacity for seeing the best
and the truest in people. We are
commanded in the good Book that
we should love one another, and I
trust we do, but I am thankful that
that does not Include that command
that we must like everybody, for
there are some folks whom It is hard
to like, and of these are the thin
voiced, pinched-faced, hollow-eyed
critic. The first quality, then, is that
of inspiring people with the idea that
we believe in them, and if we have
faith in others, they will have
faith in us, for faith in the heart be
gets faith in one another. It is so
with God. If we would know Him
and awaken within Him the power
even of committing to us His secrets,
we must believe, for with the heart
the man beel'evern unto right-eousness
-that righteousness which brings
the image of God into the face of
clay. .And then, too, we must tell
our friends that we believe in them.
I love flowers much, but pray you do
not reserve them all for the funeral.
Tell your friends you believe them;
tell them that you love them. Speak
with your lips, speak witfl your eye,
speak with your flnger tips. Tell
them you love them.. And God, too,
is touched by the same testimony.
"With the piouth confession is made
unto salvation." Another quality ab-'
solutely essential to friendship, ab
solutely essential to true friendship
with man and with God-and that
is downright, sincere heart honesty.
I heard a man say the other day: "My
religion is to pay my debts." He
answered the question of how much
he is-worth by a round $50,000, and
I said: "Of course, you pay your
debts. There is one a little less great
than the Almighty who would be af
ter you if you did not, for Uncle Sam
sees to that." You will pay your
debts, but that is not the measure of
honesty In the sense in which I
speak it now. It is that sort of spir
itual honesty that would blush deeps
ly to think a falsehood or to harbor
in the heart one moment a shadowy
thought. It Is the kind of honesty
that is born of a pure heart-a heart
touched by the sunlight of* His infi
nite love, a heart that is made clean
by the power of His spirit. Such sin-,
cerity as this, such downright hones -
ty of purpose, is loved of men and
God alike. It is the basis of trueI
friendship with man and with God.
I read a new text the other day.
It was as old as the voice of David,
but it came with a new voice, thus
"The Lord made known His ways'
unto Moses. and His acts unto the~
children ot Israel." This is the dis
tinctian between Moses and the' ch
dren of Isra'el. Moses undcerstood th
act of God, but somne way he had.Jn
soul-reach which recognized the
finger of God uniting act to act to
tell the sweet story of His love. I re
member once, when the children of
Israel were hungry, and Moses cried
to God. In the morning, on the sand
of the desert, everywhere, were litthe
round, white loaves, and the Israel
ite, standing in the door of his tent,
said: "What is it?" "Manna." He
ate the gift of God and his hunger
was satisfied, and said in his heart:
"This is the act of God." But Moses,
looking on hungry Israel. satisfyn;
its appetite, and looking up to the
blue, said: "This is the way of God."
Again, the Israelites cried for food.
quails, and covered the camp. and
the Israelites ate, and were satisfied,
satisfied with the act of God, but the
spirit of Moses would not rest until
he saw through the act to the heart
beat of God, and he saw in quails. in
rain. in fire, everywhere, when God
spoke, he saw His way. And once,
when he climbed the mountain and
stood in the presence of Jehovah for
forty days, so catching the heart-beat
of the Infinite that his face shone
with peculiar glory, and he must
needs cover it with a veil ere the chil
dren of Israel would look upon him.
Would you know the difference be
tween Moses and the children of
Israel? Their bones3 were buried in
the wilderness, while he, long after,
climbed Nebo's height. and, as the
old tradition says, God kissed his
sirit from his body and buried the
clay with His own hand, and gath
ered the soul to HIs bosom. We
have heard from him once since,
when or the Mountain of Transfigur
ation with Elijah he talked with the
man of sorrows concerning the death
which He should accomplish at Jeru
salem. Moses lives because he
learned the ways of God. And would
you know the secret of this in every
day life? Some of you have said: "I
am poor; I was born poor, and I have
held my own." I saw a poor woman
the other day. I was directed
through a gate into a pasture, down
over a hill, through another gate into
a green plot of meadow, and there
was a little lonely house. The chairs
were poor, the stool was broken
poverty everywhere, save only in the
face of the woman. Every joint save
one was stiff with incurable disease.
and with the right hand she toiled
busily on for the little ones taht gath
ered about her feet. I thought that
I would bring her a word of consola
tion, but it was I that was consoled,
for in the silence and sorrow of pov
erty God had talked to her, and her
face shone with His beauty, and her
eye was bright with His glory. Her
wor 's were like ointment poured
for,.m. She lived in the heart of the
eatitudes. And once I saw a rich
man whose money came easy, and
one day he heard the voice of God,
and like a brook from the mountain
he poured forth his dollars to sweet

makes beautifulthe meadows through

He had learned.the way of God in
riches. And this is what I would say
whether the gift be poverty or riches,
sickness or health, prosperity or ad
versity, cloud or shine-they are but
the acts of God. and out of these acts
He allows us to weave the story of
His love. and to learn the beautiful
lesson of His ways to the children of
Could I tell it all in one word, it is
this: Can you remember the days
when the smoke of the awful war be
tween the North and the South was
beginning to drift toward the ocean?
Can you remember the last days of
the war? One incident lingers in my
memory, It was up in the Adiron

mother had prayed - prayed with

the snow had fallen so deep that it
covered the fence, and then a thaw,
and then a frost, and the crust was
so thick that a beast could walk over
it without breaking through. In the
early days of March a friend walked
fourteen miles over the mountains.
He came to the home, and brought a
paper, and said: "A battle has been
fought, a battle down on the ocean
at Fort Fisher, and a stronghold has
been taken." And then his voice
grew hoarse. He said the battle had
cost us much, and then a tear came
into his eye, and then he read a long
list of the slain, and when his voice
spake one word It read: "Charles

not cry out, but went up stairs and
stayed there all the rest of that day

The Chief Duty.
There are times when it is a duty

not live wVhose chief duty it is to
make money, nor whose chief atten

making. If one gives money-making
first place, both his work and his
judgment are undermined and un

to make m'e-'~'y be the usual deter
mining factor in his decisions, he is
building character on about as stable
a foundation as that man who heard
Christ's words and did them not. In
at least nine cases out of ten there is
a better reason for cr against any

THE SUNDAY SCHOOL
INTERNATIONAL LESSON COM.
MENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2.
Subject: Bartimaeus and Zacchaeus,
Luke xviii., 35, to Luke xix., 10
-Golden Text, Luke xix., 10
Memory Verses, 42, 43.
T. Bartimaeus cries aloud fo:
mercy (vs. 35-39). 35. "Was come
nigh." When Jesus and His disci
ples were entering Jericho they met
the blind men and Bartimaeus was
healed. Mark says it was when they
were leaving the city. "Certain blind
man." Matthew says there were two.
36. "The multitude." In addi
tion to the crowds that frequently
followed Jesus, there were many peo
ple on their way to attend the Pass
over at Jerusalem. 37. "Jesus of
Nazareth." So called because Naza
reth was His home until He began
His active ministry.
IS. "He cried." He had evident
ly heard of the fame of Jesus, and
how He could heal the bliud. It is
the chance of a lifetime; there is no
time to lose; in a moment He will
have passed. "Son of David." With
the Jews this expression was applied
to the Messiah. "Have mercy on
me." The case of this blind man il
lustrates well the condition of a sin
ner and his efforts in coming to God.
39. "Rebuked him." Whenever
a soul begins to cry after Jesus for
light and salvation the world and the
devil join together to drown its cries
and force it to be silent. "Cried
more." He was-in earnest, and op
position only caused it to increase.
II. Jesus restores Bartimaeus'
sight (vs. 40-43).
40. "Jesus stood." The cry for
mercy will always cause the Saviour
to stop. He takes not another step;
this is the first thing to be attended
to. "To be brought." He could have
healed his eyes at-a distance, but this
is an important case and He decides
to show His power before this whole
company. "When he has come."
Mark tells us that in his haste to
re- ch Christ he cast away his gar
ment. 41. "What wilt thou?"
Christ knew what he desired, but He
must know it from him; the divine
plan is to ask if we would receive.
"Lord." The Revised Version in
Mark renders this Rabboni-my Mas
ter. This was the highest title of
42. "Thy faith hath saved thee."
His faith was the medium through
which the bl'essings of God were
brought to him. It was not his ear
nestness, or his prayers, but his faith
in Christ that was commenged, and
yet earnestness and prayers are also
important. 43. "And immediately."
It was not necessary to wait a long
time for a gradual healing, but in
stantly he saw. "Followed Him."
As a disciple.
III. Zacchaeus overcomes difficul
ties (vs. 1-4).
1. "Passed through." "Was pass
Ing through."-R. V. Zacchaeus
evidently lived in the city. Tidings
of the approach of Christ and His
apostles must have preceded Him. 2.
"Zacchaeus." He was a JTew by birth
(v. 9), but because he had engaged
in a business so infamous in the eyes
of the Jews he was considered as a
mere heathen (v. 7). "Chief among
the publicans." At Jericho was lo
cated one of the principal custom
houses. The trade in balsam was
extensive and Zacchaeus was evident

a publican he was a religious outcast.
"Rich." And like many rich .men
had not always come honestly by his
3. "Sought to see Jesus." At
this time Zacchaeus must have had
conviction of sin. He was not satis
fied with his riches and his dishion
est, wicked life. "Little of stature."
And could not see over the heads of
the multitude. 4. "Ran before."
Laying aside his dignity as chief pub
IV. Jesus abides with Zacchaeus
(vs. 5-7). 5. "Jesus-saw him."
The truly divine part .was that Jesus
fathomed his heart and understood
its longing. 'Zacchaeus." Jesus
called him by name, although He
had probably never met him in the
flesh before. "Come down." Those
whom Christ calls must come down,
must humble themselves. "Must
abide." Christ invited Himself, not
douotung a wecome. riow long He
remained we do) not know. 6. "He

noticed, much less to entertain the
7. "When they saw it." The
crowd or 2ews murmured. It re
quired courage to meet the preju
dices of the nation, but Jesus always

as an equal, socialiy.
V. Salvation comes to Zacchaeus
8. '"Ihe half of my goods," etc.
Some consider' this to mean that he
had already done this, but It is far
more probable that he now deter.

and humanity. "If--by false accu
sation." The "if" does not imply
doubt; he had taken money wrong.
fully. "Fourfold." This restitution
the Roman laws required the tax
gatherers to make when -it was
proved they had defrauded the peo
ple. 9. "Salvation come." Zac
chaeus was saved - delivered from
his past sins and made "a new creat
ure." 10. "Is come to seek.". While
Zacchaeus was so desirous of seeing
the Saviour, Jesus was more desirous
to see and save him.

The first Christian testimony must
be to conversion, for that is the basis

idea is that men are dead--"dead in
trespasses and sins"-and that if they
are to have spiritual life they must
be born into it as much as we are
born Into natural, physical life. So
he Saviour taught in his interview
' ith Nicodemus.
In general, thiese are the steps into

for sin; confession of sin to God;
prayer for pardon; the exercise of
faith in Jesus Christ as God's atone

It is probable that all the 5-cent
pieces now in existence would not
have more than paid in cash fares
cc lected en the New York City Rail
way Company lines alone. According
to the report of the State railroad comn
mission, the number of cash fares
paid in 1906 in New York- reached the
enormous total of 1,171,151,698. At 5
ents each that amounts to ~5,557,
94.90. In the period from 1793 to the
close of 1904 the total value of the 5
ent pieces coined in this country
amounted to only $24.175,788.15. If all
the 3-cent pieces and the 2-cent pieces
and the cents and half-cents were
added it would still leave a total in
money far less than that repres-:nted
by the ecllection of cash fares in
New York. With a reasonable' al
owance for the number of coins that
must have been lost and destroyed in
one va~ or- another since our mint~
as opened, it is probable that the
totd amount of change now in this
:'ontry, including all coins between
dolar andl 3 cents, would not ex
