LESSON FOR JANUARY 11.
THE MISSION OF THE SEVENTY.
LESSON TEXT.-Luke 10:1-24.
GOLDEN TEXT. "It is not ye that
peak, but the spirit of your Father that
ipeaketh In you." Matt. 10:20.
Jesus "came unto his own and his
own received him not." Rejected In
Judea, be turned to Galilee, making
his headquarters at Capernaum only
to be rejected there also. "After these
things" (v. 1.) e. g., after his final de
parture from Galileo, and as he was
about to perform his Perean ministry.
The ministry of Jesus is rapidly has
' tening to a close, still there is much
work to do, henco the selection of
those who shall go before him to pre
pare for what proved to be in each
city and town his last visit.
1. The Seventy Sent (vv. 1-9). Verse
one tells us of the character of tho I
work they were to undertake, viz, to
bo heralds; to prepare the people
against his coming, 2 Cor. 5:20. There
is a plentltude of wo.-k, but, "the la-
borers are few." They were sent to
a particular people, "whither he him- i
self would come," 2 Tim. 4:8; Titus
2:13. No matter what may have been
their limitations, the "coming one"
would supply all deficiencies. Jesus
commanded prayer, but also sent forth '
those same praying ones (vv. 2, 3).
Prayer and work go hand In hand In
a sane Christian experience. Every
impression demands sufficient expres
sion, it It is to make any lasting con-
trlbution to our characters. The lurge
harvest demands attention. We are
(Sent into that harvest by the King .
himself, "Behold I send youj'nd '
those whom he sends are not com
pelled to labor alone, Matt. 28:20;
John 14:1G. Jesus mentions four
things about those whom he sends:
(1) Their character. They are to be
like "lambs." We have Just had the
figure of "laborers" presented, labor
ers who were sent. Is this then a
mixed simile? We think not. We are
to go forth to the harvesting work as
laborers, that is our work, but, In our
characters, we are to' be lamb-like.
(2) Their environment, "among
wolves " That is to say, surrounding
each harvest field, and frequently en
croaching as far as they dare, are the
wolves, a typo of the evil one and of
his agents. Those -who go thus Into,
or by the way of, danger will not carry
any excess of baggage, 2 Tim. 2:4.
(3) In the third place, they are to
go forth with complete dependence
upon God's providing care (v. 4). The
exact letter of these instructions is
not always incumbent upon his ambas
sadors, chapter 22:35, 3G, but the spir
it of absolute faith in a Father who
will provide, must always possess hla
4t As to their bearing, It must be
that of dignity and self-respect (v. 5).
Social demands consume a great deal
ot energy in diplomatic circles, and It,
is here that many Christians waste
precious energy, as well as becoming
Involved in worldly practices. Their
first thought upon entering a house
must be for the good of the home
(v. 5). not for their personal comfort.
If a "son of peace," (v. C), dwelt there,
one to whom peace rightfully be
longed, their benediction would bring
to that home a blessing. But if he fie
not there their peace was not to be
lost, for it would return to the giver.
(5) Their mission was to offer, not
to force acceptance. They were not
, beggars, going from house to house
(v, 7), they had something worth
while and were worthy of their hire.
The fawning, cringing sycophants that
pass for Christian workers stand re
buked before this teaching. However,
this does not sanction the dogmatic,
domineering methods of some. They
are to accept what is offered (v. 8),
not demanding, "a worthy compensa
tion." The church of Christ stands
condemned for the meager salaries
given Its representatives, yet It is also
true that a man usually, and in the
long run, gets about what ho is worth.
To build up character brings a far
richer compensation, and more last
ing results, than to obtain earthly
prestige, ease or wealth. Therefore
the ambassador of Christ can afford
to wait with glad certainty the final
casting up of accounts, accepting in
the meantime the lowlier seats among
meu, Luke 14;7-14. However, these
ambassadors do have an exalted work
to perform, They had a commission
for both body and soul. The Gospel
of Christ Is for the whole man (v. 9).
To minister to the bodies of men must
however be accompanied by the her
alding of the coming kingdom. That
kingdom which is everlastingly to be
visible upon earth, Dan. 2:44.
II. The Seventy Received (vv. 10
16.) These heralds were to proclaim
that the kingdom was "nlgh.unto you."
In this section we have set before
us not only the probable manner
whereby the ambassadors may be re
ceived, but also their attitude towards
those who shall reject them. Jesus, by
hie anathemas pronounced upon Chor
nzln and Betbsalda (vv, 12-15), Inti
mates what shall bo tho fate of those
who reject the ambassadors of the
King. He emphasizes this by saying
(v. 16) that he Is heard and despised
when these, his representatives, are
heard or despised.

Just as we were about to launch out
into tho "Merry Widow," or some
thing as embarrassingly appropriate,
I would spy another hearso turning
the corner, and would have to hurried
ly change the tune or wait until the
mourners were safely out of earshot.
It was a little disconcerting and dis
tinctly trying, but I managed things
all right, I thought, and congratulated
myself upon having come through a
difficult situation with flying colors.
But, alas, my self-satisfaction was
short-lived! Three days later I re
ceived a letter from an indignant wid
ow complaining that, of all tunes the
band had played, "Put Me Among the
Girls" while her dear husband's fu
neral was passing the grounds!
Strength of the Stubborn.

son, "I thought you were working for
"I was, mum. But I've quit."
"Is that so?" Mrs. Wilson could not
conceal her surprise. "I thought you
"Indeed I do, mum."
"And I'm sure she liked you."
"I believe she did, mum. Leastwise
she always seemed to."
"Well" Mrs. Wilson was still won
dering what the trouble had been.
"Well," said Martha, seeing that
some explanation was expected, "you
see it was like this, mum. I always
put the blue china plates on the right
hand side of the cupboard, and this
morning tho missus comes along, and
moves 'em, and says, 'Martha, every
mornin' for three years you've put the
plates on the wrong side, and I've had
to come along and move them and 1
can't stand it any longer.'
"And," said Martha, "I says to her,
'Mrs. Blxby, every mornin' for three
years I've put them plates in the right
place, and you come along and moved
them, and then I had to come along
and move them back, and I can't
stand It any longer, either.'
"And so I quit." Youth's Compan
ion. French-Canadian Birth Rate.
When Franco is perturbed by that
ever-present specter, the falling birth
rate, there Is the example of French
fertility in Canada to which students
of the problem may point from their
editorial stools In Paris. The results
of the Canadian census of 1911 have
recently been published and show 2,
054,000 French out of a total popula
tion of 7,206,000, as compared with
3,878,000 of English, Irish, and Scotch
combined. In 1901 the French were
31 per cent, of the whole; In 1911
only 29 per cent., but In the same pe
riod the Britannic preponderance had
fallen from 57 to 54 per cent, with
the Introduction of other races. In the
ten years the French-Canadians had
added 405,519 to their number, a strict
ly numerical Increase of nearly 25 per
cent. a rate the half of which would
make France delirious with joy could
she accomplish It.
Lost Feet and Watch.
While surgeons ot the Methodist
hospital, In this city, were amputat
ing the feet of John Guest, who was
run ovor by a train at Bangor, Pa.,
his gold watch was stolen from his
pocket. When he recovered conscious
ness from tho anesthetic he missed
the timepiece, and the loss caused a
hurried search, but nothing could be
found to explain the loss.
Suspicion fell on Paul Itelker, an
orderly at the Institution. He was
arrested, confessed, and was held for
trial In the night court. This led to
the discovery that another patient,
Frank Price, was robbed of a dia
mond stickpin while under the In
fluence of ether In the surgical ward,
and Relker also confessed that theft.
Philadelphia Dispatch to the New
Power of Latin.
It Is recorded that Andrew Jack
son was once making a Btump speech
out west, in a small village. JuBt as
he was concluding, Amos Kendall,
who sat behind him, whispered, "Tip
'era a little Latin, genoral. They won't
be content without It." Jackson In
stantly thought upon a few phrases he
knew, and In a voice of thunder,
wound up his speech by exclaiming,
"B plurlbus unum sine qua non ne
plus ultra multum In parvo." The
effect was tremendous, and the
shouts could be heard tor many miles.
