"How nbout a course llko that

"Teach policemen to cut out tho rough

Tho major pondered the idea for a moment. Then ho branched off.

policemen have more tact than tho jollco of nny other city In tho country.
If, they uso too much force get too lree with their clubs thoy quickly ap

"Reverting to Pittsburgh," said the interviewer, "don't you think It's
hard to use moral suasion en n Lithuanian steel worker who has surrounded
a quantity of vodka nnd bright ideas?"
"No moro so," replied tho major, "than it is to use moral suasion on

In this plan wo hnvo a dwelling of
modest dimensions, being 25 feet from
front to rear, and 32 feet In width,
with n four-foot oxtonslon to make
voom for a pantry. In this way wo
got throo splendid rooms on tho first
floor, and thoy aro well arranged for
both convenience and looks.
Pantries wero never properly built
until this outside attachment was hit
upon. It was born of necessity, llko

tho storage of food, both cooked nnd

In ono Uttlo houso where a pantry

Tho fruit room and tho pantry
above wero connected by means of a
dumb-waiter, which has Juat a box
about a foot squaio and thrco feot
long, vertically open on the front side,
and flttod -with two sholves in tho
middle. There was a pulley near the
colling m tho pantry, nnd a ropo with
n counterweight on the other end
which balanced tho box so that It
would slldo oaslly up and down. With
this convenlonco It was never neces

Only ono trip bolow was necessary at

Itself contained everything needed,
nnd it was only minute's work to

Another feature In this Uttlo houso,
that is qulto now, is tho stairway
built around tho big chimney. It not
only looks well from tho largo living

per cent of our criminals belong to
this class. Perhaps 50 per cent of
our prostitutes are feeble-minded

On our Lord's Journoy "towards Je

18:85 suggests that In that coso It
occurred as Jobub was entering and
not leaving Jericho. Mark 1b telling of
ono man, Luke of anothor.
I. Bartlmaeus Begging, vv 4648.
The passing throng rebuked the bog
gar. Very likely the disciples Joined
In thlB rebuke. This certainly shows
tho fact that none of them fully com
prehended tho Lord's teaching as sug
gested In Mark 10:46. Bartlmaeus Is
an illustration of man by nature. His
home, Jericho, was tho city under "a
curse" (Joah 6:17), and is a typo of
this world cursed by sin. He waB
blind, see II Cor. 4:4; Rev. 3:17. His
rags suggest Isa. 64:6 and Phil. 3:9.
If tho rebuko was mainly by the dis
ciples it was that they might save the
master during these strango dayB.
Groat and marvelous were the works
and teachings ho was performing, but
theso wero tho things that called forth
such a wayside service It was a glad
message to BartlmaouB, "Jesus of Nn
rareth passeth by." Thero was no
one else who could holp him. Some
ono had told htm of tho power of
JesuB. Now his opportunity Is at hand,
he must not miss It Jesus never
passed that way again. Bartlmaeus
began by crying out, Rom. 10:13; he
called whllo Christ was near enough,
to hear, Isa 55:6. His cry was that
of conscious need, It was direct, it
was insistent. He called Jesus "Son
of David" o. g., tho Messiah, although
tho peoplo had said "Jesus of Naza
reth," boo Matt. 9:27; 15:21, 22. His
cry for "mercy" Is rebuked. Many to
day are so stiff and formal as to frown
upon any religious enthusiasm or ear
nestness. It was not benonth tho dig
nity of Jesus to bo disturbed by a
blind beggar. Though poor In purse
BartlmaeuB waa rich In faith for ho
answered those who rebuked him by
crying "tho more a great deal." Ho
would not be put off.
II. Bartlmaeus Blessed, vv. 49-52.
Hla command "call yo him" is indica
tive of tho conscious power of Christ
Notlco hla great interest aa suggested
by the words, "Jesus stood still." Re
inomber his important mission to Je
rusalem and tho leaders of the peoplo
who occupied his tlmo; yot he does not
compel Bartlmaeus to follow after, nor
to overtake him ero his prayer Is an
swered, Seo Matt. 11:28. This waa
good newr for tho dlsclplea to pro
claim, Matt. 28:19,20. There waa no
Indecision on tho part of Bartlmaeus.
Casting his garment aside ho sprang
up, camo and cast himself at the feot
of Jesus. Although Jesus possessed
all power still Its manifestation was
confined to tho deslro of tho beggar.
We havo no suggestion of any further
controversy aftor the command to call
BartlmaeuB. No further objectlona
or speculations aro raised. He sim
ply "came to Jesus." Tho garment ho
threw aside would havo Impeded hla
progresB, Isa. 53:7; 64:6; Heb, 12:2.
Beforo tho cry has been for mercy,
now it is for sight. This he received
In response to his faith, "Thy faith
bath saved Ihoo" R. V. Notice he la
saved (v, 52) "made wholo," beforo he
received his sight. Society will be
saved only ,tn Individuals are first
"made whole." Our Lord's responso
was to tho cry of need and the ac
knowledgment of his Messianic office.
The Teaching: First, the readlneBB
of God's mercy. Jesus had been reject
ed by rulera and councils and Is mov
ing "steadfastly" toward tho consum

Journey led him through Jericho, per
