?PACE OF JESUS CHRIST SPEAKS
DIRECTLY TO THE HEART OF
MAN IN ALL SITUATIONS.
IT Is said that one day as the poet
Tennyson with a friend stopped
to look at some pictures in a win
dow on the Strand, the friend.
Snowing Tennyson's admiration for
Dante, asked him what there was in
Haste's face that was Jacking in
Goethe's. The answer was instan
taneous: "The divine."
So the face of Jesus Ch Hst speaks

Shakespeare, a Goethe, a Plato.
But matchless in glory and perfect ;
Jh beauty is the fight of love-beaming
tn a mother's face, gleaming from a
martyr's eye, shining from the ever
xadiant face of Jesus Christ.
God pours his lovelight upon the
world from the face of Jesus Christ
He, the man Christ Jesus, is the me
diator, the conductor of the lovelight
from the heart of the Eternal to this
poor dark world. The heart of mankind,
Jost and fearful as the babes in the
wood, trembling and shuddering in the
cold and dark, is ever praying with
XTewman: "Lead, kindly Light, amid
the encircling gloom," and God ia
ever answering through tho face of
Jesus Christ, the Light of the world.
No man could endure to see God di
jrectly, any more than one could gaze
at the blazing sun without eyelids. God
xnnst be revealed, therefore, through
2 medium. "There shall no man look
trpon my face and live." The universe
reve?is him indeed, but it veils him.

glory tempered to our human face,
lian's heart hungers for something m
God akin to itself, something of
our own weakness, something ap
proachable and endurable.

Augustine cried: "Thou hast made us

Glory of God Everywhere.

fanfare of pride at an imperial coro
nation. It was the glory of lowliness
which Is the uttermost glory of God
himself. So the angels, familiar with
the humbleness of the great God al
?alghty, saw his image and the bright
ness of his glory in Bethlehem, and a
multitude of the armies of heaven
came to celebrate lt In the ears of the
lowly, while the proud and the rich
were deaf to the resounding heavens.
In nature are revealed the eternal
power and divinity of the Godhead, bot
love is concealed or but dimly seen.
The God of nature roars In the peal
ing of the thunder and the howling ot
the storm and the raging of the sea.
He smiles in the lightning's flash, and
shrivels the verdure of earth with the
flaming sun or the scorching wind.
Men fear and dread this awful God.
The heathen stand in awe of him and

gospel, in the face of Jesus Christ,

Our Dally Life.
Our daily companionship with
Christ should be the saving power of
?JJ onr living. If we begin the day in
prayer with him it will strengthen us
for the day's tasks and templatlona

gull tus words of life they will go
with us. sweetening all the day and

Christ rs manifested to the world not

With the chafing dish, which may
be as simple or as fine as the purse
allows, one always likes a few pretty
pitchers, small bowls, dainty jars and
dishes to hold the materials to cook,
as well as the condiments and season
ings. Measuring spoons and cups are
indispensable, as accuracy is as es- j
sential in chafing dish cookery as in j
Anchovy Toast.-Toast four slices
of bread from which the crusts have
been removed, spread with anchovy
paste. Scald a cup of milk, add two
egg yolks and stir until the mixture

fried in a bit of butter is a favorite
way of serving bread.
Frizzled Beef.-Take a few slices of
dried beef, cover with boiling water
and let stand ten minutes, and drain.
Melt two tablespoonfuls of butter in
the blazer, add two tablespoonfuls of
flour, and pour on gradually one cup

the beans through a sieve and whip

Danger in a Dark Kitchen.
No map has a right to expect a
woman to keep a sweet heart and a
cheerful mind and live in a house
bare of comfort and beauty and work
in a dark kitchen. Too many farmers
when building a house never consult
their wives, take no thought of their
comfort or convenience, and leave the
kitchen the last thing to be consid
ered if it ls considered at all. And it'
asked to spend money on decorating
the home would actually feel abused!
A woman's life in the country is
often necessarily lonely and she ought
to have the very sunniest, most pleas
ant rooms in the house for her sit
sing-rcora and kitchen. Most farm
wives spend two-thirds of their wak
ing hours in the kitchen, and no mon
