Sower Who Dares to Go Forth
Seeds of Truth.
Among all the figures which loom
out of the words of Jesus with a per
manent interest for us there is none
that is more significant than the sow
er who went forth to sow. Across the
field of imagination this toiler ever
passes, never rests. With his bag
upon his shoulder, his arm forever
sweeping the half-circle as he walks,
and the seed forever falling from his
hand, he is silhout^d against the hori
zon of the world. He incarnates a
principal. He personifies a process.
He fixes m the thought of man the
way of God. Behold a sower went
.forth to sow. That was his task. He
did not make the soil on which hi3
seed fell. He saw the rocks, the
thorns, the thin soil and the hard soil.
He knew that much of his seed would
never fructify. He saw the birds as
they picked up the kernels after him.
Perhaps he even thought the birds
had a right to a share. Of course
hs understood that sun and rain
would try the tender plants. He also
understood that the harvest was on
the other side of summer. He need
ed not to be told that he must walt,
and that his seed must take its
chances wj'h *U +he vicissitudes of
seasons and weather.
Believed in the Earth.
But he trusted nature. Ia Spite of
stories and thorns and thin soil and
hard soil, he believed in the earth.
He believed enough to act. He was
not one of those who wait that they
may serve. He took his promise from
creation. Beneath the variations of
the days and nights he felt the thrill
of spring. He rested in the deeper
processes. He had faith that all the
world would change beneath the ec
centricities of wind and shower and
heat and light. And so he sowed.
And so he went forth to sow, seeking
the soil in which to cast his prophe
cies of future increase. For all seed
sowing is prophecy, and all seed
sowers are seers who bide their time
in the promises of life. If there were
more prophets there. wauW Jj* more
seed-sowing in. the World. And if
there were more who understood the
law Qt Increase as \t works every
where there woura" be ifewer foolish
questions asked of those who sow the
seed. For those who t&roand harvest
before the seed has time to sprout'
and grow are spiritually near-sighfed.
The noblest symbol of great faith ls
one who dares to go forth unque'stion
ing. scattering seeds 'rjf truth and
right and peace <?h& SOVe, knowing
that stones and thorns and unrespon

of ripening grain where he sowed his
MESSAGE HARD TO INTERPRET
Commentators Differ as to the "Wom
an Jezebel" in the Third Chap
ter of Revelation.
As to the message to the church in
Thyatira, ia the third chapter of the
book of Revelation, it is an obscure
and difficult, ene to interpret, since we
know so little of the prevalent cus
toms and heresies of that time. Com
mentators differ as to the "woman
Jezeb3l," some claiming that she was
a heathen priestess, who stood for all
manner of licentious rites and evil
practices, and others that she was the
leader of the Nlcolaitans, a division
of the church that claimed to be none
the iess Christian because lt tolerated
some heathen customs, like eating
meat offered to idols, offering Incense
to the statue of the emperor, joining
social clubs, which were numerous in
those days, and which often fostered
much debauchery and eyen licentious
ness. Many of these clubs were con
nected with the trade guilds, and on
this account Thyatira, which was fa
mous for these guilds, offered special
temptations to the Christians Who be
longed to these guilds, to f?ni?ohe,
even if they did not approve, the un
christian practices of many of the
The praise accorded in the first part
of the message to the church of Thy
atira seems to give color to this inter
pretation, for the Son of God himself
says: "I know thy works, and love,
and service, and faith, and that thy
last works are more than the first"
It is thought by many that the Nl
colaitans, though their doctrines were
wrong, and their complaisance toward
the practices of their heathen neigh
bors was most dangerous, yet were
still active in good works, and per
haps vied with their stricter and more
Puritanical church members in acts
o? benevolence and subscriptions to
ail good causes so that the "last
works were more than the first"

Tt?e people in al* lines of duty who
do the most work are the calmest,
most unhurried people in the com
munity. Duties never wildly chase
each other in their lives. One task
never turns another out, nor ever

methodically, doing one thing at a
time, as? doing lt well, and it there

1 IS A DRIZZLING RAIN I
By HOPE AINSLEE. *
(Copyright, 1915, by the McClure Newspa
A soft drizzling rain was daring the
roses in Constance Atwood's cheeks
to come out and get wet. And the
roses were fast appearing as she
walked briskly through the damp
cinder path in Central park.
It was Saturday afternoon and Con
stance had promised herself that she
would finish knitting the last of her
six pairs of socks for the soldier boys
before the Wednesday boat should
have sailed. Her small brother and
sister, being prevented by the rain
from playing out of doors, would de
mand the attention of Sister Con
stance if she were at home. There
fore she decided to seek the shelter of
a summer house in the park, where
on a day like this shu tt'.as sure to
A beautiful girl sitting alone in a
summer house on a cold, drizzling
day knitting socks is not an every
day picture. Indeed it was such an
unusual sight to Donald Grey when
he came upon it that he almost
stopped in his course to stare.
Constance looked np casually as h?
passed and her calm, level gaze met
his; thea she dropped her eyes, con
tinued her knitting and. the ?an
strode on through tn? winding path.
But the tnan's peace of mind had
been disturbed. Only his deep-rootei?
sense of chivalry kept him from -re
tracing his steps for one more look
at the lovely girl. He realized that
he had only a slender chance in a
thousand of seeing her again, and
yet at that moment he could think of
no other person whom he so desired
to see again-and often.
Suddenly his musings were abrupt
ly interrupted by the approach of a
big Irish park policeman leading a
small child reluctantly by the hand.
The officer had to stoop to keep a
held of the tiny tot.
' "Gotta l??t kid!" he said laughing
ly to Donald.
Donald looked at the pretty UttV
;gtrl "Pine day for ^ Vike
;tn?J to be al.m? In the park, isn't it?"
'Vine for the pn?uY?bny! Says her
' ma's kn?ttm'' ftft? she run off," volun
teered th* fco?i'ceman further.
DoW?Yd "Grey paled a little. "Knit
itt?k, 'did you say? * Her-her moth
"Sure! Why not? Aint they all
a-doin' it day an' night for Tommy
Atkins and the loike o' him?" asked
the officer. *J
"I saw a,young woman back in the
summer house-a-knitting," said ^?
"Where?" asked the policeman,
"I'll show you-it's quicker," and
Donald led the way back to the sum
The little one trotted beside the
big policeman and Donald, humming
gayly. She seemed not tn care who
her protectors were, so long as she
was having a little excitement. Don
ald could see that much in the tot'?
When she saw the trio approaching
Constance stopped knitting and
stared. But Donald could see at a
glance that she had not lost any
body's baby. She looked from one to
the other as the three drew close.
"Askin' yer pardon, lady, but did
ye lose this kid?" asked the police
Constance laughed. She shook her
head. "No, indeed, I didn't Is the
poor baby lost?"
"She sure is-says her ma's a-knit
tln' and she run away-"
. "Ma's doin' that," said the child
gaylyj pointing to Constance and her
"Is she, dear?" asked Constance
and Donald realized that she had the
voice, too, of his ideal. "And where
did you leave your mamma?"
The child made a vague gesture.
"Over home with lots o' ladies all
The policeman took the child again
by the hand. 'Come on, kid, you'll
catch cold out here. I'll find her ma
all right. Much obliged." And the big
policeman and the little one walked
off in the drizzling rain.
Donald Grey raised his hat Tm
"Oh, it was quite natural? Pm Sure.
Don't apologize. I only hope they
find the baby's mother soon. Tt's not
a day for little ones to be Wit!*
The girl's tone dismissed him and
Donald strode on. This tim? he felt
desperate. If h? had wanted tb know
her after a single glance at "her, he
longed more than ever now that he
had seen her smile, and heard her
speak, had stood before her.
He would have felt utterly hope
less if he had not been a firrh be
liever in the good Presbyterianism
that everything that happens is for
the best. If this was the way he was
to meet her, never to see her again,
why-that was all. If she were meant
'for him-and with his youthful, hope
ful outlook on life,, he believed sjie
was-he would find her somewhere.
For nearly two years he sought her,
and then, at a benefit dance given
to aid the widows and children of
soldiers who had fallen in the war, he
was presented to her by a patroness
of the evening.
"At last, Miss Atwood," he said.
And although the girl only smiled,
he had the satisfaction of seeing in
her eyes a glad look, as if she, too,
had been hoping. "And if it is fate,"
he said to himself, in a flash, "of
course, she has been hoping, too."
