Mary's di -ires were deeper. She
would liol penult the material to
crowd out the spiritual. Her choice
was Ibo unseen. Ee>r ber the words

?Jesus knew values 'Ivetter than any
man who had ever 'lived. He could
.weigh worlds ami words and the souls
. of . men.' Ho said to "Martha, reprov
ingly and lovingly, "Mary bath chosen
the good part, which Shall not be tak
.on -away from her." Mary chose the
.things that will last: "Heaven and
(earth .shall pass away, ?hut my words
??hull -never pass nw:ay."
Knowing tho Father.
No knowledge ls Ro important as
knowing God ; not knowing about
.God but 'having personal acquaintance
m"H'b Hliq. Gotl is revealed In nature
mvd 'In history. True science tenches
ns marvelous things about 'God, but
thetre ls only one Wily to know God
personally, and that is through Jesus
Chrlrt. Ile rt I one- fully knows tho Ea
ther ?ind He alone ls able to reveal
the Father to us (Luke W>:22).
There 1? no use to quibble"*nbout this
fact. Tlie sooner you accept and act
upon lt the sooner will you come lalo
possession of a knowledge that will
enthrall you and free you from tho
desire to know many other things thftt
only curse and degrade.
This ls what the lawyer sought,
though Insincerely (v. 20). is lt not
really what wc all desire? Eternal
lifo ls only Christ's to give: "I give
unto my sheep eternal tifo." He ls
th? Life. The seventy returned with
joy. Through Hie delegated power of
Jesus they hud wrought the very same
miracles that Ile had. Jesus prom
ised thom the exercise of almost un
limited authority (v. 18). Well might
the disciples rejoice that even de
mons were subject to them, hut Christ
pointed to something grouter: "j?ut
rejoice that your names nro wrllt?:i
In heaven" <v. 20). Eternal Hf??] The
good nod enduring possession. Do you
The Joy of Possessing the Best.
Not the best in comparison with the
possessions of your neighbor but the
best in themselves. Only Intrinsic
values count with those who are Im
mortal ; deeds that produce lasting
,1oy boen use wrought In the power of
God ; rejoicing thnt abides because
they abide who know God and His
Son, Jesus Christ ; peace in the midst
of, things that are distracting because
the words of Jesus Christ nre hld In
our hearts. These are the best things
to possess. They produce ?I10 Joy that
abides. They are spiritual and un
seen, but most real. Other things pass
away, hut these abide.
When revelation of the best posses
sions ls made to us, lt still remains
for us to, deliberately make choice of
them. Martha could have made the
same choice that Mary did, but other
things more strongly appealed to her.
Our lives may bo so full of pleasant
"things" that we may not d<?slro the
best. But If Ihey do appen) to vis,
even then they must he earnestly
chosen. Bettor accept God's valua
tion of things than your own. Choose
what Ho approves Instead of what
you may prefer. They make no mis
takes who decide with God.
Interest In Fellow.Man.
A dutiful Interest in our fellow-mnn
ls something from which no ono cnn

moro mon will be "found wanting" jin

omission than for any other single

MSN'S BSG BLUFF
Mere Fiction That He ls Incapa
ble of Housework.
Yt? Throughout th? History of th?
EWorld, a? Writer Point? Out,
He's Qot Away With lt.
When Adara delved ?nd Eve spun,
the fiction that man* te Incapable of
housework was first established. It j
would he Interesting ro figure out Just
how many foot-pounds of energy men
have saved themselves, -stoop the cr?a
tion of the world, by keeping up the
pretense that a special knack Is re
'quired for washing dishes and for
dusting, and that the knack Is wholly
feminine. The pretense of .Incapacity
?ls Impudent In Its audacity, and yet
dt works. Heywood Brown writes In
Men build bridges nmJ throw rall
.roads across desertt;. and yet they coo
.tend successfully that Hie Job of sew

cordingly, they don't have to -sew but
It might be said, of course, that the

who have never (brown R railroad In
our lives, nd yet sweeper in all the
glory of masculine uchievemoni with?
ont undertaking any ol tlx- drudsery
of odd jobs.
Probably men alone could never
have maintained the fallacy of mascu
line incapacity without ibo nld of
women. As soon ns that rathol lim
ited sphere, oner known ns woman's
place vas established, women began
tn glor'fy and exaggerate Its impor
tan'", hy the pretense that li was all
so special nnd difficult Hint no other
sex could possibly begin to accomplish
the tasks entailed. To this declara
tion men gave Immediate and eager
assent nnd they have kept it up. The
most casual examination will reveal
thc fact that all the Jok<?? about the
horrible results of masculine choking
and -sewing are written by men. It
is all part of a great scheme of sei
Naturally there age other factors.
Biology has been unscrupulous enough
to discriminate markedly against
?gonion, and men have seized upon
this advantage to press the belief that,
?Ince the bearing of children ls ex
clusively the province of women, I?
must be that all the caring for them
belongs properly to the same sex. Yet
how ridiculous this ls.
Most things which have to be done
for children are of the simplest sort.
They should tax tho intelligence of no
ont?. Men profess a total lack of abil
ity to wash baby's face simply be
cause they believe there's no great l'un
itt tin? business, nt either end of the
sponge. Protectively? man must go
to the whole distance 'and pretend
that there is not one single thing which
he cnn do for baby. He must even
maintain tbut he doesn't know how
to hold one. From this pretense has
grown the shockingly transparent fal
lacy that holding a baby correctly is
one of the fine arts ; or, perhaps, even
more fearsome thnn that, JV wonderful
Intuition, which has come down af

Seek Candle Light Shade.
At a committee of the National Elec
tric Light association, Investigating
the question of toning lamps for color,
lt seemed to he thc general Judgment
of those to whom samples were sub
mitted that a light even 'somewhat
nfore distant from white than that of
the carbon incandescent lamp was de
sirable, som, thing indeed approximat
ing the kerosene flame of earlier days.
The result of practical experience
on a considerable seale In the candle
flame lamp now brought out meets
the color requirements very beautiful
ly, and moreover, the conting given to
the bulb IB permanent In hue even
when used on the gas-fitted lamps,
thus possessing a virtue which most
of thc earlier experimental lamps did
not have In a reliable degree. The
loss In efficiency by the color-toned
diffusing coutlng Is relatively small,
the specific consumption being less
than half that of a carbon lamp of
lytblng near the same color.

New Mexico, on Good Friday, in ob

Tho Penitentes are. Indians with
a Mexican admixture. The order has
many followers, it is understood, in
remote villages of this State. Al
though supposed to he dying out,
the order still attracts wide atten
tion because of its mysterious cere
monies, which Americans seldom are
able to witness. The principles and
practicas of the order aro said to
have come from Italy through Spain
Lafit Friday was one of the rare
occasions, according to tho two art
ists, when Americans were permit
ted to witness tho most solemn core
monies performed by the renitentes.
"When the Penitentes form in a
long procession," said .Mr. Nordfeldt,
"they march to slow, weird music
and beat themselves with thorn
whips soaked in brine water to
wound themselves and make their
wounds smart. One man carried a
large wooden cross, under tho weight
of which he fell exhausted frequent
ly. The procession ended with tho
erection of two crosses with mem
bers of tho order tied to them."

SvoIutJoJx Of all the vital adventures in life, the birth of a baby it
the climax of nature's most wonderful evolution.
During this period, nature is supposed to bc preparing

nature, unaided, performs her port at the crisis in a
manner to relieve pain and contribute to comfort.
