TOLD FOR A MEMORIAL OF HER}
Matth?w 26:1-16?Ootober 30
"Bhe hath done tchat the could."?Hark t):8.
IN a previous study we cousldered
the Great Teacher's triumphal entry
into Jerusalem on the ass, and
his tender of himself to the Nation of
Israel as their King:, in fulfillment of
the prophecy of Zeehuriah 0:9-12.
That was five days before f^je Passover.
For several days Jesus taught
In the temple, going at night to the
home of Lazarus, Martha and Mary at
Bethany. He knew what to expect?that
hl9 hour was'come. He knew that even
then the chief priests and elders of the
people were considering his destruction
and hesitating only lest it should cause
tumult. Their Indignation against the
Great Teacher was (hat lie did not
teach as they taught and that his
teachings had much more power with
the masses than a>i their teachings
combined. Anger, envy, hatred, united
in branding him as an impostor and
in sending him to his death, "for the
good of the cause."
The feast at Bethany referred to in
this study may have 1/fcen on the night
before our Lord's betrayal, two days
before the feast of Passover. Itnt the
concensus of opinion seems to be that
it occurred on the Sabbath evening
nrnirwIliKr ll.n I flntilnlm 1 rl?1rt T,,
rusaiem. It matters not, however.
There was such a' feast. Josus and
his disciples were present. During the
feast a woman approached with an
alabaster flask of veryjpu'ecious perfume.
She poured it upon his head
and the entire room wj>s sweet with
the odor. The woman was Mary, the
Sister of l.azarus and Martha.
Another account shows that the protest
made by the disciples against (his
it a n lUMlKilli'il My .HKiaS,
(ho treasurer of the little company of
the Lord's disciples. John remarked
that he was a thief and carried the
bag and intimated that he was more
Interested in the money than in the
poor and that his mention of the poor
was merely a subterfuge. Hut the
Great Teacher rebuked his disciples,
saying. "\VI$ trouble ye the woman;
for she hath wrought a good work
upon me: In that she hath poured t' is
ointment upon my hotly she did It to
prepare me for burial. Truly I say

shall he preached in tlie whel;> world,
there shall also this which this woman
hath done he told for a memorial
of her" (Matthew xxvi. 10-i:h. How
ronsiderate was the (Sreat Teacher!
How sympathetic! Flow appreciative
of everythhiu done for him!
"She Hath Done What She Conic!"
The Lord, in line witli all the Scripture
teachings and urates, declines to
rceoKui::i> woman as a te.icher of re
iitrion in the ('lunch amoinxsi ids followers.
No woman was driven a place
amongst the twelve Apostlua? nor even
when t he seventy evangelists were sent
forth with the simple message, which
any woman could have jjlven. surely
as glibly ns any man. <>r more so; even
on this mission he did not .veml women,
nor even a represent at i%ve of Ibe
sex. The man. in Scriptural usiiyie. is
the figure of the Lord: the woman, the
figure of the Church. It would hi> out
of harmony with the figure that the
Church should be the instructor and
the Lord the pupil. Consistently, therefore,
It would have been improper for
woman to have been commissioned to
represent the I.ord. Ilence. women as
teachers in the Church have no authority
in the Bible for the position. We
read that the serpent beguiled Mother
live ami made of her n teacher of er^

ror to her husband. Wo road that the
ovil spirits used a certain young woman
as a medium to announce the Apostles.
But we find no Divine sanction
of woman as a teacher In the Church,
but that the young woman who acted
under the spirit of divination and at
tempted to preach Christ ami tlit? Apostles
was rebuked by the Apostle 1'iuil
and tlieN spirit of divination dispossessed.
All this, however, does not Indicate
that either Jesus or the Apostles were
either rude toward women or unappredative
of their qualities of heart and
mind. Quite the contrary. Amongst
the Lord's followers were many "honorable
women" and ids special love
for this Mary and her sister Martha Is

me ye have not always. Poverty Is
sure to be a factor iu the social .order
during the present time, because, In
our fallen condition as a race, some
are more brilliant of mind than others
and selfishness Is the general rule.
Hence until the end of the reign or sin
and death the poor will be here. And
there is a blessing attached to every
good deed, every noble endeavor to
help any member of the race to higher

be no poor, for, under Fhe Kingdom
condition, love will be the ruling principle,
Instead of selfishness.

| TRIAL LASTED FOR FIVE DAYS
I Believed Jury Secretly Recommended
Life Sentence?Strong Prejudice in
England Against Hanging on Circumstantial
Evidence.
I
Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen, after
a trial extending over five days, and
I tlilrty minutes' deliberation by the
I Jury, was found guilty, at London,
j of the murder of his Avife, an American
j woman, known on thb stage as Belle
Elmore. Lord Chief Justice Alver
stone, who presided at the trial, sentenced
Crippen to be hanged on November
15th
There is, however, the strongest
prejudice in England against executing
a man on purely circumstantial
evidence, and an incident at the close
of Crippen's trial has caused the impression
that the jury may' have
recommended a life sentence. After
Crippen was sentenced to death the
foreman of tho Jury handed to the lord
chief justice a note, after looking at
wnicn ;ne justice saiu:
"That shall bo forwarded to the
proper quarter."
"The proper quarter" might mean
the home secretary, who has Jurisdiction
in such matters. The jurors refused
to discuss the incident.
The jury was out just thirty minutes.
When it returned and announced
that it had found the defendant guilty,
Lord Chief Justice Alverstone asked
the physician if he had anything to
say. Crlppen replied in a low voice:
"I still protest my innoconce."
The chief Justice then donned the
black cap and pronounced the aent&ntic
of death.
NINETEEN MEN LOST.
Steamer Regulus, Caught In Storm,
Becomes a Total Wreck.
News of the wreck of the steamer
tyegu lus, bound from Belle Island to
Qydney, with the loss of nineteen men
Of the crew, was received at St.
Johns, N. F.
The wreck occurred at Shoal Buy.
The Regulus was owned in St.
Johns, and the crew consisted almost
wholly of New Foundlanders.
The Regulus has been running between
New Foundland ports, Sydney,
C. B., New York and Philadelphia.
She broke her tut 1 shaft off Bay of
Bulls, 3(j miles, from St. John, while
on her way from Helle Island to Syd
ney, and a tug picked her up. Th<>
Btorm increased, however; four hawsers
were parted, and the Uegulus 1k>came
lost in the fog and darkness.
At daylight the steamer was found to
bo a total wreck on a point of land at
the entrance of Shoal Hay. \inci< en
raomhors of the crew had been swept
Into the sea and drowned.

in the city court when Mrs.
Lola Ashley was awarded a verdict of
?r> ,000 against K. K. MeMahnn, who j
Is now serving a life Sentence in the
penitentiary for the murder of Mrs.
Ashley's husband, Sam Ashley. The
crime was committed the night of
January 2.1, 1909, after the two men
left a dance hall together. Ashley's
body was found the next day on the

while handing a pistol to McMahan.
The court charged the jury in
the case that the survivor in a sui- ,

POWER OF A WORD.
Why Franco Changod tho Name of the 1
"Lifo Srfving Belt."
A vivid illustration of tlu: power of
mere words over human beiugs was
once brought to the attention of French
people by Francisque Sarcey.
After the wreck of the Ltourgogne
many passengers were found tloating
drowned with life preservers on. These
life preservers were fatscned upon nobodies.
but round the middle Instead
of under the arms, and the greater
weight of the upper part of the body
had tipped the head under water and
the person of course Wiis inevitably
drowned.
Now it appears that the greater nuin
her of the persons so drowned were
French. The French term for life preserver
is ceinture de sauvetngo. <>r "life
saving belt." This wool ceinture suggests
to the mind in its moments of
disorder and unreadiness, such as a
great catastrophe brings, the idea of
putting on a licit, and ;rs a belt is put
round the waist and nowhere else the
frightened porson instinctively adjusts
the life preserver close nholit the hips.
The result is that as soon as the
l>crson so provided falls into the water
his body tips over, with thi> heavier
part downward, and the head is plunged
beneath the surface.

the word bras, or arm. to mind to
teach people to put a life preserver on

STOPPING A TRRIN]
Many Things Combine to Make It
an Uncertain Operation.
THE NUMBER OF CARS COUNT
Likewise the Momentum and the Brakfbig
Power and the Temperature of
^ho Rails?Freight Trains Moro Uncertain
Than Passenger Trains.
"In what distance run a train ho
brought to a stop? Well, that depends."
said the grizzled engineer,

that could see red, white and green a

depends. son, and the more I think of '
it tln> more 1 realize how it depends
on circumstances.
"In tile tirst place, it depends on the
number of cars you have on .vour
train. The fewer cars you have the
quicker you can stop, ehV Well, that's
where you're dead wrong." The engineer
rested his gnarled list across his
knee as if it were a fifteen pound
monkey wrench. "Yes. sir." he repeated.
"if you've got tliat idea you're |
wrong, just like folks are likely t<> !>e i
on railroad matters which fliey don":
know anything about. Now, the fai t
is that a certain type of engine can !><
sitnrmnil nnieker it' it luis :i 11 ;i 11 (lo/cii I
freight curs hooked on to it. That's
so because there are brakes on each of
tlie cars, and they all grind into the
wheels when you sling on the emergency.
Why wouldn't it stop quicker
If you had a dozen cars on instead of
six? Well, sonny, for the simple reason
that the weight of the train, or.
rather, the momentum, overcomes the
braking strength of your air. and so
you're carried along. If you had less
than six cars it would he jnsi the
other way?you wouldn't have enough
braking power to overcome what
weight you have got. Yes. sir. with
evorv freiirht train and with everv
passenger (rain there is :i certain
number of cars necessary to make tin
ti'ain most effective when i( comes u<
stopping quickly. This is a very practical
question too. An engineer will
say to himself. 'Weil. I've got more
cars on today; I'll have to )> ... on
brakes sooner in order to si just
right at the station.'
"1 once heard an engineer ay that
an engine with a baggage car did two
passenger coaches traveling at the rate
of thirty-live miles an hour would re
quire about <500 feet to stop and traveling
at twenty-live mi!> ? an hour
would require -UX? feet to lalt. Now.
I he was .iust guessing, or else lie li::?! a
particular train and particular eotuli
tlons in mind, and most likely panic
utar times in initio i tie laci is you
cau'l tell within what distance a trail
can be stopped.
"Why. take tlit* same type of <-n ;i 11
and the same type of com bes ::ml run
them over the same track and applv
the brakes in precisely the same man
ner and the two trains will not slop
in the same distance of track, indeed,
take the same train over the very
same track at different times, run her
at exactly the same speed and apply
the brakes in the ver\ same manner
and you can't stop in the same distance.
Engineers would like to s!o|> at
each station at precisely the same spot
that they did the day before. Do they
ever do itV No, son. they don't, because
it can't be done.
"The stopping of a train depends on
conditions, just as 1 said before Engineers
who have traveled over a particular
road for years can't do it. Sometimes
the conditions vary to such an
exteut that the train is run p:ist tin
station. Everybody bus soon thai done
And then the engineer says things 1111
dor his breath and backs up his train
to let the passengers on and to take
on baggage. Sonny. engineers never
know within yards whore their trains
will stop.
"Freight trains are more uncertain
than passengers. This is so because it
doesn't matter as much. An application
of ten pounds of air may produce
no braking at ail, due to the wear of
cvcloin n ml /ill flio ol her h;iinl I'll
teen pounds inij;ht |>ut on more brake
thau the engineer wauled. lie may
throw on a small quantity of air. and
without expecting it the emergency
brakes get into action as ;t result
When the brakes are already on the
engineer may release them a III tie and
by so doing release (hem entirely, so
that tho train leaps forward So. \on
see, you can'l always tell what the
brakes are going to do.
"You wouldn't suimose thai ?he tein
