"Thou art a
priest forever after the order of
.Melehisedec." Not of the order of
Aaron, or after the law of a carnal
commandment. Christ's priestly work
was aol completed when Ue offered
Himself as a siierlflce for sin upon
the cross. His Intercessory work for
us ls cont In ned In heaven, lt ls go

was earthly, temporary and imper

priesthood of Christ. He ts a priest

In Cb rt si there is neither changing
nor a L ing. Unceasingly His work
continues for us within the veil
whither He has gone. "Ile ever liv

the power of His resurrection life
Christ continues to intercede nnd to
work for us, In our behalf, and also
Salvation Not Separate From the
Salvation ls not an outwnrd, objec
tive thing or possession. Eternal life
ls ours only because Christ ls a living
savior. He made ntonement for our
sins and ls now sented at the right
hand of Qod os our high priest,
but He also abides within us In the
person and the power of the Holy
Spirit. Only thus can He meet our
needs, only thus can we know the
life more abundant, the life that ls
strong and victorious.
Through Christ wo too may live a
resurrected life, a life that ls SB end
less as His. This Implies, for us, fu
ture and endless development. We
can never attain unto in bait y but we
can always bo moving towards lt.

That uncircumscrlbed life will have

In this life our knowledge ls limited
upon every side. Over yonder we
Bindi know as we arc known, and
natural and physical burrlers will all

be added to Indefinitely and bound
Every quality and capacity of the
soul ls capable of measureless devel

tho opportunity. We carry with us
beyond the grave only memory, char

MUSEUM GETS RARE RUGS
Once Used to Wrap Around Pillars In
the Orient, They Ar? Now
Six Mongol pillar rugs, recently pur
chased hy the Pennsylvania museum,
have been bung in the Memorial hall,
Fulrniount park, In the north corridor;
one pair at the entrance to the Wil
stach gallery, one pair at the entrance i
to the Silver room and the third pair
at the entrance of I he section devoted
to musical Instruments. These rugs
were once bound about the wooden
pillars of Mongol lamaseries or
temples, and in several of the mu
seum examples the woolen lashings
which hound them are still there. Pos
sibly textile decoration for pillars fol
lowed carving, which would account
for persistence of design, as these rugs
could have been Intended for no other
purpose. In one pair, at least, the de
sign becomes meaningless when spread
flat, for the dragons which coll about
the pillar appear cut off In three sop
nrato pieces, which meet exactly when
the edges are Joined.
The Chinese Huon Tsang, traveling ,
to India In the first half of tho
Seventh century, says that the pavi
lions of the monastery of Nellinda
were upborne by pillars ornamented
with dragons. The burial chambers of
the kings, with their antechambers,
have been uncovered from, the mounds
of earth which were heaped about
them, and on the stone walls ure fresco
paintings. The doorway from the outer
to the inner chamber of one of these
royal tombs ls flanked on either side
by an octagonal column on which are
painted colled dragons, no doubt In
reminiscence of earlier carved up
rights. The next step, for particularly
nomad people, was to render tho same
design for n similar purpose tn textile
