Who is My
By REV. ED. F. COOK, D. D.
Director Missionary Course,Moody Bible
TEXT-Who is my neighbor?-Luke 10:
?. Read Luke 10:25-27.
In the parable of the Good Samari
tan, Jesus is Clearly undertaking to
show the univer
sal obligation of
ice. The question
to whom this ob
ligation is due
and the measure
of the obligation
an honest in
quirer. It is in
teresting to dis
cover the meaning
of the master's
answer to the
young man's ques
tion. He seems
to say that my
neighbor is the
. mau iu ueed, the mau itt need of what
I have to give, and whose need arises 1
and Is made knowu to me at a time
w?en I am able to give it. If this be ;
true, how amazing and wonderful has
become the world neighborhood, and
how clearly is the Christian's duty to
*jnafce Christ known emphasized by the
universality of human suffering. Like
the man on the way to Jericho, na
tions lie stricken, bleeding, hungry and
ready to die. I
Over against this appalling fact, the
?be of which the Christian never
laced before in all the history of the
world, stands Christ, God's only an- '
?wer to human need. We of America j
know him. We have him enthroned in
many an earnest heart. We have
throughout the land the open Bible, !
?od's word spoken to sinful and suffer
ing man everywhere and in all ages,
words of love, words of hope and
words of comfort. How mightily it be- ;
hooves us in this time of world tragedy
and suffering ro study the parable of
the Good Samaritan and to search our
.wp hearts to know whether or uot
we as individuals are rendering that :
Ministry to the suffering which human
need requires, and our knowledge of
human suffering and our ability to al- :
leviate it insistently requires.
' What a reproach that in the mas- j
toir's parable the representatives of re
ligion-the servants of tfce Temple of
?od-passed by the sufferer. Each
knew of the case of human need. Each
looked upon the orn and bleeding
form. Each possessed the resources j
from which to help. Yet each turned
away passing on the other side, delib
.rately walking away from this revela
tion of suffering and nee l, deaf to this
.ry. So proud, so self-righteous, sq ex-;
elusive, were these servants of religion,
and so devoted were they lo the forms
and ceremonies of their service, and so
filled with the thought of their own
importance, that there seemed to be
no place in either heart for the milk
of human kindness. Will we ever auain
permit this reproach to be laid at the
.door uf the representatives of religion?
(Gan it be possible that those who pro
fess to be followers of Jesus Christ,
and who are the exponents and advo-,
cates of the Christian religion, shall
fail' to exemplify thal high and holy
love wherewith thejnnster loved men? ,
Shall we forget in tho days to come'
that the master himself in answer to
the doubl of John the forerunner an
nounced as the evidence ot his divinity
and ga vt- as thc proof of his adequate
ministry to mon. thar "the blind re- '

Armenia and great, old, riven, torn ?ind

Christian heart of America the min
istry of healing, the ministry of

learning as a people In this great war

Ornamental Lamp Posts.
There is no feature of municipal
equipment that adds more to the at
tractiveness of a elly's appearance
than do ornamental street lamp posts
of artistic and appropriate design. Just
ii s the effectiveness of interior decora
tions and furnishings depend in a
large measure upon lighting fixtures,
so the beauty of the street can be en
hanced or marred by Its lights. In
each case a satisfactory solution of
the lighting problem consists not only
In supplying sufficient illumination but
also in providing lichtlng equipment
that harmonizes with its surroundings
and possesses n beauty of its own.
The old-time lamp post in vogue be
fore the days of electricity fulfilled
the second of these conditions but not
the first: for, although the post Itself
was often a work of art. its feeble oil
or gas flame seldom was equal to the
task of Illuminating the street. On !
the other hand, the modern overhead '
arc lamp gives a fairly satisfactory
light, but the unsightly poles, ropes,
wires and other equipment for raising,
and lowering the lamp can scarcely be i
called beautiful. Now comes the oma-,
mental street lamp post, which com-1
bines the beauty of one of its prede-j
cessors and the utility of the other.

TO KEEP CHICKENS AT HOWIE
If Hens Develop Tendency to Fly Over
Fence, Flight Feathers Should
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
A yard surrounded by a 5-foot fence
will, uuder most conditions, keep chick
ens at home. If the hens show a tend
ency to fly over such a fence, the flight
feathers of one wing should.be clipped.
A fence made of woven wire Is prefer
able to a fence made of board or other
material. A board should not he used
at the top of a wire fence as this gives
the hens a visible place to alight and
tends to teach 'them to fly over. The
larger the yard which tan be provided,
the more contented the hens will be.
It not only gives them greater oppor
tunity to exercise but ofton makes lt
possible to maintain a sod on the yard
which is advisable.
