Text, John 14:11, 17-Commit
TIME.-Sunday, May 28, A. D. 30,
9 a. m. PLACE.-An upper room
EXPOSITION 1. The. Disciples
Filled With the Holy Spirit, 1-4. The
disciples had been bidden not to de
part from Jerusalem, bit to wait for
the promise of the Father, the hap
tism with the Holy Spirit (ch. 1:4.
5). They had faithfully obeyed this
command. After the ascension of
Jesus they had returned at once to
Jertisalem (1:12) to wait God's time
and God's blessing. The following
days hid been spent largely in pray
t-r (1:14). Those were not wasted
days. More was accomplished in the
ultimate outcome than if. they had
t)ent those days in preaching. Though
"they continued steadfastly" in pray
er (1:14, 1R. V.) the entire time was
not spent in prayer (ch. 1:15-26:
rLuke 24;53). There was absolute
unity In their prayer, it was "with
ne accord." Their minds were all
united in one thing. "the pronitse of
the Father," the bantism with the
Holy Spir;t (Lii. 11:13: Ac. 4:31; S:
15-17). They did not regard the pos
Itive promise of Christ (1:5) as re
lieving them from the necesslty of
nrayer, but as an Incentive to and a
foundation for prayer. The -women
were there as well as the men (ch.
1:14). Ten days passz,d without an
answer. The day of Pentecost, the
ay of "first fruits," the gathering
af the church (Lev. 23:15-21) came
at last. Not till that day could the
IToly Spirit he given. Now that Pen
,"Most has come no one nc ds wait tn
-lavs for the laptism with the Holy
il)irit. Thnre is no record of sny wait
ing since Pentecost (see ch. 4:31: S:
15-17; 9:17-22: 10:44: 19:1-6). The
baptism with the S'Irit is every be
ilever's birthrirght through the cru
-ifled, risen and ascended Christ (vs.
.3.' 39). and the moment the condI
tions are fulfilled this blessing will
be ours. If we have to wait, the dif
ficuilty is with us, and not with God.
It is because we have not met the
conditions. The disciples seemed to
have been expecting the promise that
very day, they were "together in one
place" (R. V.). It was at or before 9
In the morning (v. 15). They were
of one accord (cf. 1:13, 14: 2:46:
4:24. 32: 5:12). This unity doubt
less bad much to do with the bestow
al of the gift, and the absence of this
unity has much to do with the faillure
of ninny churches to-dav to receive it.
The blessing came "suddenlv" at the
last (cf. ch. 16:25, 26; Mal. 3:1;
Luke 2:13). There was not a mo
ment's warning. There was a roar as
of a hurricane. Emphasis is laid
upon the fact that this sound came
from heaven. It is wind "from heav
en" we need. We have too much wind
of another sort. On another occasion
the place where they even gatbrel
together was shaken (ch. 4:31).
This sound "filled all the house." The
disciples were "sitting." not kneeling
in nrnyer as they are so often reniro
sented. There was not only "wind"
fromt heaven, hut fire as well (cer.
Matt. 3:11; Is. 4:4;: Jer. 23:29). The
fir was in the form of tonenues, the!
new power was to muan ifest itsAlf in a
tongue of fire granted to them (v.
4). The tongues parted asunder (nl.
V.) or portioned themselves out to
"each one of them." Peter only is
made prominent in the story that fol
Iowvs, but each one of them receivedl a
tongtue of fire. The tongues of fire
rested tupon the women as well as
unon the men (cf. also vs. 17. 18').
The blessing was not to the church
as a body. huit to "each one of them"
as indlividuals. "They wvere all filled
with the Spirit." This is a fulfillment
of chi. 1:5. So the expressions "filled
wvith the Soirit" and "bantized with
the Spirit" are practically synony
mouts. The excpression used her'e
brine~s onut the thought that the Holy
?nuirit takecs complete possession ef
the faculties. The immediate result
was they. "began to sneak with other
tongues" (cf. ch. 10:46: 19:6).
11. 'Tle Multitudelt AmaSzed, 5-1 1.
The noise of the wind from heaven
was heard by the multitudes without
( v. 6. R. V.). T'hey rushed together
to find out what it meant. The multi
Itides always gather when the Spirit
comeslC up~on God's p)eole. The disci
!'lts began to speak to them of the
mighty worlks. of God. Each one
hear id themt sp)enking in his own Ian
gunge. T1he effects were startjing and
various. They were "confouundedl,"
"ama!zed," they "mtarveled" andl
''were perpleted." Some thought the
disciples wvere drunk. Others "gladly
received the wvord," and were hap
tizedl. The conversions were very
numerous and( very thorough (vs. 6,
7, 12, 13, 37, 41. 42, 44t, 45). Simi
lar and e(iitally varied effects follow
to-day when men and women are
lod with the Hloly Spirit and speak
:as the Spirit gives them utterance.
Thbes3 SIpirit-filledl men and women
did not talk much about themselves,
'mit about "the mighty works of God"
I v. 11I). Tihe mighty work of \God
that they esp'cially emphasized was
Riis ra-ning Jesuis Christ from the
lead ('w.. 24, 2) . The Spirit-filled

In continuance of the declared
policy of the Pennsylvania Railioad
system to provide against timber
scarcity, the lines west of Pittsburg
have just completed - and placed in
experimental service lir:o of concrete
telegraph. poles through New Brigh
toi, Pa. Its construction followed a
series of elaborate experiments which
have been conducted duriig the past
Owing to the fact that wooden
poles are constantly becoming mere
expensive and more difficult to ob
tain, the Pennsylvania, in 1906 began
to test the value of concrete as a
substitute for wood. Fifty-three re
inforced concrete poles were set up
in the line along the Pittsburg, Fort
Wayne and Chicago Railway, near
Maples, Ind. A year later they were
giving entire satisfaction and showed
no evidence of decay.
The Ingenuity of Inventors.
The ingenuity of inventors and
manufacturers is ever at work in the
endeavor to reduce the expense of
production, and at tho same time to
improve the quality of articles having
a large sale. This is not only benefi
cial to the purchasing public, but it
inures to the benefit of the producer
in increasing saies and preventing
competition. This has been so in the
case of farm machinery, clothing,
shoes, bicycles. etc., and now it is ap
parent in the safety razor field. Thou
sands of this style of razor have been
sold at from $1.50 to $5 each and giv
en satisfaction. Recontly manufac
turers have applied more scientific
principles and improved methods in
their manufacture, and the result is
seen in the "Shrp Shavr" razor, which
is sent postpaid for twenty-five cents
in stamps by the Book Publishing
i-ouse, .134 Leonard street, New
York. It is superior to any razor
rold, being bought largely by those
already owning the highest priced
razors. Not overy one knows that
the best results are obtained by hav
ing two or three razors and alternat
ing them in use. This practice of al
ternating possibly accounts for the
very large sale of this low priced im

The marine hospital service will

HOW TO CORE AHIOMATISAA
It Is An In.terai .DiSeae And Be.
quires An Internal ftemedy.
The cause -of Rheumatism and kindred
diseases is an excess of itrio acid 'in the
blood. To cure this' terrible disease th:
acid must be expelled and the system so
regulated that rio more acid will b fornaed
in excessive quantities. Rheuinatism is an
irtternal disea*e and requires an internal
reuredy. Rubbing with Oils and Liniments
will not cure, attords only temperory relief
at best, causes you to delay the proper
treatment, and allows the malady to get a
firmer hold on you. Liniments may case
the pain, but they will no more cure ltheu
atasm than paint will change the libre
of rotten wood.
Science has at last discovered a per
fect aknd complete cure, which is called
"Itheumnacide. Tested in hundreds of
cases, it has effected the most imarvelous
cures- 'we believe it wil cure you. Itheu
macide "gets at the joints froin the in
side," sweeps 'the poisons out of the svs
ten, tones up the stomach, regulates the
liver and kid'neys and makes you well all
over. Rheumacide "strikes the roots of
the disease and removes its cause." This
