For March IB. "The Riot at Ephesns."
(Acta xlx, SO 0.)
CONTEXT Last lesson ending -with the
twentieth verse of. this chapter gave an ac
count of Paul's wonderful success at Ephe
aua. To-day we shall sea how quickly pub
lic sentiment, changed. From a stats of
Popular favor he Daased Into one of bit
ter antagonism. The occasion for the re
vulsion In feeling; is found In the intervening
verses, a to &. it au grew out 01 me mer
cenary spirit that so freauently dominates
a class of tradesmen. Demetrius, a silver
smith, who made shrines, found that his
business was endangered by the influence
of Paul. Appealing; to his fallows, he rep
resented that even the worship paid so long

they 'began to cry, "Great Is Diana of the
Hpheslans." The multitude had no purpose
except to defend the ancient religion. The
leaders expected to array the sentiment of
the town against the apostle.
.CONFUSION-CVerse 2 The whole city
was soon excited, aa the outcry spread from
lip to lip, from house to house, from street
to street. A mass of Ignorant people moved
by passion In. one direction presents a
(rightful spectacle. It Is so In our day and
country. Among orientalists the case Is
greatly worse. Travelers declare that
sometimes under ueh Influences th moat
cavage deeds are enacted. In this Instance
the multitudes were confused, scarcely show
ing the cause of the commotion. Gradually
it wu noised about that the Christians had
made an attack upon the popular religion,
than which there could be no greater of
fense. Whatever may be their practice
men may be mora ardent In their religious
convictions than in any other. Seizing two
of Paul's colaborers. men from Macedonia,
foreigners, the IDphestan mob rushed with
them Into the theater, the usual place of
COURAGE (Verses 30 and SL) The situa
tion became critical. The lives of two men
were In Jeopardy, both of them helpers in
the gospcL One had been close to Paul,
one of the two had been baptized by him
(I Cor. I. 14): whose hospitality had been
shared (Rom. xvL, 23. and the other was
destined to be a traveling companion on the
Journey to Rome. (Acta xxvll. 2). Will the
apostle abandon such men to their fata? Be
sides, the cause of religion was Involved.
UNFIT FOR WORK"
The Doctor's Verdict and How
Mr. Graham Disregarded It.
"The doctor said I was not fit for work
and that if I wanted to live I would have
to give up business," said F. J. Graham of
No. 123 Jefferson street. Peoria, 111. -
"And I was incapacitated," he continued.
"It was a kind of lnclpont paraylils and It
Is due to Dr. Wllllamsr Pink PIIU for Pale
People that I am now in perfect health
again. First I would be hot, then cold and
clammy ana at times my ooay fen as u
pierced by needles. There were terrible
pains all over me and then I would have
no feeling at all. A numbness sometimes
came over me and I could not move. With
it all were agonizing headaches and a pain
in the region of my spine. I look back on
It now and wonder how I retained my
reason through that long and trying ordeal.
There were months and months when I
got no natural sleep and my nervous system
was a wreck from pain and the opiates
.which I had been obliged to take.
"One dar I read the statement of a man
who bad been cured of a care like mine by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
and I began taking them. The first box
did so well that I continued until six 'boxes
were taken and I was entirely well. I have
been In perfect health ever since."
No other mediclno in the world has ac
complished so many cures in cases that wars
apparently hopeless as Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Palo People. Tho cure of Mr.
Graham Is only one Instance out of thou
sands, and the reason this remedy is so
wonderful in its efficacy is because, unlike
any other medicine, it acts dlrectlyon both
the blood and the nerves. Dr. Williams'

After all that had been achieved for Christ
shall an Infuriated crowd be permitted to
array themselves in cruel hayed against
the ministers, who bad come to preach de
liverance Irom sin and superstition? In that
moment Paul rose to the supreme height of
a courageous friend and a fearless advocate,
lie determined to enter the theater, to face
tho angry multitude, to speak to them if he
might. It nas only with much difficulty
that his friends persuaded him not to moke
OUTCRY (Verses 32, 33. 34.) And so the
tumult continued and increased, the greater
part of the assembly ignorant of the cause
of the commotion, but all supposing that
their religion was opposed. Fanaticism had
gone mad. Under these circumstances the
Jews began to fear that vengeance might
soon be taken on them also, as they repre
sented a foreign religion. They therefore put
forward one of their own number. Alexan
der, tho coppersmith, who had bjen trou
blesome to Paul (H Tim. iv, 14), expecting
that he would defend himself and his own
nation against any accusation. The Jows
hoped in this way to escape the fun" of tha
hour, and lenvo the Christians to suffer. But
as Alexander began to speak It became
knonn that he was a Jew. and his voice
was Instantly silenced by the noisy clamor
of those who were unwilling to hear. With
ono volco of the multitude, as before, cried:
"Great Is Diana of the Ephesians." The
words rang through the spacious building,
and overwhelmed every contrary effort to
DIANA (Verse 33.) Ephesus was the --ap-ltal
of a Roman colony, and the civil
authorities were required to maintain tne
jwace. After two hours of this noisy dem
onstration the town clerk appeared on the
scene. Because of his position and power
ho soon bestowed a measure of order, suf
ficient to be beard.. He washenaa!fot
the hour with tscfVposeesstrd by "few, he
said Just the words that were needed to
bring quietness to all. He simply told the
multitude what they all knew, wnat every
one In Ephesug knew, what had hn a
matter of belief so long that It could rot
be successfully refuted, namely, that the
city had worshiped the great goddess
Diana, which fell down from Jupiter. That
was those who heard a flattering testi
monial, a candtJ argument and a most ju
dicious pleading. Tne force of the state
ment was about thi. What Is the use of
making such a racket about a matter thnt
is firmly fixed in the minds of all? 5,v.'ry
one must have seen the purpose of the town
OUIKTNEXS (Verses .18 and 27. IIsv-
' lng made these statements so well calculated
I to flatter the sjperstltlous multitude, tne
1 town official urgtd all to quietness, the
very thing which he above all others was
expected to secure. Ills appeal was so
reasonable that all who heard mu;t have
felt Its force. There was really no oc
casion for any uproar. The more sensible
portion of those before him could plainly
see that what had transplrf d was purely the
result of a causeless excitement. But the
clerk, with remarkable cenerosltv of sn'rlt.
did not rest the caie here. He proceeded to
speak a word of defense for the men who
had been so violently treated, who wore
even then held In the grasp of the ncfry
mob. He seemed to know something of
the deportment of Galus and Aristarchus,
who must have behaved themselves In
Ephesus In such manner as to bo without
accusation. Their vindication at this time
was complete. It was authoritatively de
clared that they had done and said nothing
against the popular religion they had not
robbed churches or blasphemed the god
dess. LEGALITY (Verses 38 ana' 33) Here a
caveat was thrust Into tho clerk's address.
If. as might have been the case, notwith
standing the loyalty of the people to their
religion and the Innocence of the appre
hended disciples, there was any real griev
ance, there was a legal mode of redress.
If Demetrius, the silversmith, had really
been injured, as ho claimed, a mob could
not give him Justice. Courts of law were
established to try all such matters, where
the facts may be rehearsed and a decision
calmly reached. This was a pleading for
law and order, for the right and dignity of
government, for the execution of Justice by
the duly constituted tribunals, as against
those disorderly and passionate outbursts
that would secure good to no one. In this
aspect of the case the Roman official ap
pears to excellent advantage. Rome had
conquered the world and had Imposed forms
of civil government upon all the subject
peoples of whatever race or tongue. Sub
mission to lawful authority was therefore
PRUDENCE (Verse 40) There was still
another point which had not been consid
ered by those who. with clamor, had rushed
Into the theater, a point which the clerk
used with good effect to reach the end he
sought. Riots and disorders of all kinds,
occurring outside of the forms of law are
temporary subversions of government, and
therefore officials are obligated to inquire
into them, their causes and motives. In
such investigation the parties who had be
gun the trouble might be summoned to an
swer and might. In fact, be punished aa
disturbers of the peace. Tho crowd saw at
once that they were liable to arrest, to trial
and to Imprisonment. Prudence alone, a
regard for their own welfare, would dictate
that they should quietly disperse to their
homes. This they promptly did. The Gov
ernment of Rome in the province was thus
respected, and all things were speedily re
stored to their accustomed order a genu
ine triumph was effected over the heated
passions ot men.
REFLECTIONS The Instructive points of
this lesson may be arranged under three
.general heads: 1. We have a view of hu
man nature, when moved by prejudice, su
perstition and selfishness its animosity, ex
citability, thoughtlessness, involving the in
nocent and menacing the rights and inter
ests of society. 2. We are the value and
power of civil government in restraining
and regulating the actions of men, promot
ing order and securing Justice. Any form
of government deserves the consideration
of men and is worthy of support until It
becomes subversive of the Interests it is ap
pointed to guard. 3. W see how Christians
may establish their Innocence and compel
public approval, thereby escaping censure,
how they may come into peril unjustly, but
scape through the interposition of consti
tuted authority, how the Government may
become a friend, and helper to Christianity,
and truth and righteousness may be estab
lished through a joint action of the church
and the state. The mob sustained Diana;
Rome defended the apostles.

Sncdeker, at which the condition of the
fruit crop was made the subject of special

notices a few days ago to each member, re
questing that a careful examination be
made into the condition of the fruit on his
place, especially the peaches. According to
the report of every member present yester

killed In Madison, Macoupin and Jersey
counties, with the exception of a variety
known as "Rlehl's Hardy," and but a small
per cent ot the latter buds are alive. The
killing of the buds Is attributed to the
cold snap of three weeks ago, when ia
buds were on the point of bursting. Rain
was frozen on the buds. The apricots are
also killed, and all the varieties of pears
are damaged to considerable extent.
Enough buds are alive on the pear !'.

BT A STAFF CORRESPONDENT.
Springfield, IIL, March B. The effort to re
apportion Southern Illinois Judicial dis
tricts to Republican advantage will be re
newed next week In the House. Speaker
Miller now has shown his hand In the mat
ter and Intends to use his Influence to bring
about ,r lores, an agreement between tho
Representatives who have hitherto wished
to gerrymander the counties around to suit
their individual convenience.
All bills providing a new arrangement of

table by the Judicial Apportionment Com
mittee. A new bill will be drawn redls
trlcUng so that the circuits will conform
very nearly to the present congressional
Speaker Miller may Introduce the new
measure himself. Regarding the matter, he
said to-day that ths proposed charvse is a
party advantage which should be taken, and
for which Southern Illinois Republicans as
a whole are looking. He has been accused
of indifference toward the plan and decided
that it was incumbent tropn him to take
Two other bills affecting Southern Illinois
are being actively pushed by Representa
tives Bundy and Llndly. both strong in tho
Republican councils. Bundy's provides a
substitute for the existing basis of assess
ment one-third of the market value of
property. Instead of one-fifth, as is the
present figure. This means a two-thirds In
crease. It would do very well in counties
where values are not high, but would be a
serious matter In Chicago and the richer
districts. Tha bill has been remrted out
of the revenue committee with the recom
mendation that It do cot pass. This does
not mean necessarily that it will be de
feated, as Southern Illinois, Democrats and
stepuDucans, ana a gooa representation
from the central part of the State, will be
for It Ths fraction, however, probably
will be amended to one-fourth.
Cicero J. Undlvs measure would change
the oats for holding township elections
from the soring; to the fall. Township offi
cers a Supervisors, a Cleric an Assessor
and minor officials now are chosen for two
years. Llndly would have a four-year
term, and would place the township candi
dates upon the general election ballots. It
Is argued that In the spring the farmers are
busy and cannot give proper attention to
politics, while la ths tall they ars free.
Also, to do away with this extra election
would mean a savtof eg $W,0W to ths State.

Speaker, and Mr. Miller corroborated him.
As soon as the first reading was ended Mr.
Sherman moved that it be made a special
order for next Tuesday. This carried.
Mr. Johnson's charge of "fourflushing" is
not far from the truth. Not all the Gov
ernor's lieutenants want civil service, and it
Is not at all certain that the Governor him
self is overanxious to lose his lengthy pay
roll. Llndly of Bond has become the ar
dent champion cf civil service, as his work
in sending the bill from committee and de
fense of It on the floor to-day Indicates.
It is because Lindly's prestige is Involved.
He was put on the Civil-Service Committee
against his objection, by the organization.
expressly to iook alter uio uovemors bin.
Look after it he must and will. But others
are not In JJndly s position. Powerful floor
men, such asTIJnndy and Shurtletf. from
Republican ranks, and many of the Demo
crats, are frankly against such a cumber
some and experimental reform.
Nevertheless, the bill probably will pass.
The majority of the members are so hemmed
in with political considerations that ther
cannot take the stand on the proposition
as their Inclination dictates. Both State
platforms declared for civil service; and
Sherman, leader of the Republican rebels,
started the civll-servlce cry.
The expectation was that .all bills on
the subject would die In committee, hut.
now that the members will be pushed to
the wall and must go on record, they can
do nothing but swallow tha bitter pill of
their own making.
The Democrats lost an opportunity to de
lay the supreme Judicial reapportionment
bill this morning. Though there was far
from a quorum in the House, the point
was not raised, and the bill was Introduced
from committee without objection.
A list of bills on first reading were ad
vanced to second reading. Among them
was Drew's drastic repeal of the fellow
servant law. This latter Is of the most in
clusive nature. It would strike even at the
farmer and his "hired help." If the farmer
pitching hay should put his employe's eye
out by an ill-directed stroke of the pitch
fork, he would b liable to the same dam
ages that might be assessed against th
coal company whoss employs was Injured
by the carelessness of a comrade.
Other bills advanced were the Chicago
sanitary district bill, Burke's antlloan
"shark" bill, and Noha's two "regulators"
the one regulating the abstract title and
guarantee business, which would do away
with the monopoly possessed by a rich Chi
cago company, and ths other preventing
telegraph and telephone companies from
transmitting stock quotations to bucket
shops and race results to poolrooms.
