LESSON FOR MAY 17
THE RICH MAN AND LAZARUS.
LESSON TEXT-Lulte 16:14-15; 19-31.
GOLDEN TEXT "Whoso stoppeth his
ears at the cry of the poor, he shall
also cry, but shall not be heard." Prov.
Verses 14 and 15 link this parablo
with the teaching of Jesus about cove
tousness and stewardship. Verse 15
Is a most heart-searching one. It de
mands that we look well to the stan
dards by which we Measure our con
duct, I'Sam. 16:7. That the teaching
ot Jesus was effective Is evidenced by
the statement of verse 14. These
Pharisees were naturally cool, cynical,
calculating and their scoffing shows
that Jesus had probed them deeply.
Their love of money service of mam
monmade them unfaithful in their
professed stewardship. In the inter
vening verses (16-18) Jesus condemns
their attitude of seeking to justify
themselves In the sight of men, - de
claring such an attempt to be useless
in the sight of God. The methods mon '
exalt are an abomination to him. No
Jot or tittle of the law can fall. This
he emphasizes by an Illustration about
the binding nature of the marriage re
lationship. We get our suggested two
fold division of this lesson from I Tim.
Why He la Condemned.
!. The Life That Now Is, vv. 19-22.
The revised version for verse 19, "now
there was a certain rich man" indi
cates evem stronger than the King
James version that this is the story of
a historical incident. Jesus did not
mention the rich man's name, nor
does he enumerate his moral delin
quencies. Even morality cannot save
a man from punishment in the next
life. Nor Is this rich man condemned
because he is rich. He is condemned
because he sought to enjoy his pleas
ures. In this life, squandering his time
and his money upon sensual pleas
ures, ignoring the need of those at his
dpor. "Jesusnad just told these Phari
sees how to use money (v. 9), see I
Tim 6:17-19. A wrong use of money
damns a man. A few paltry charities
or even larger gifts given for ostenta
tious display will not suffice. There
was, however, no real Joy to the rich
man In his life as he sought sensual
satisfaction, Eccl. 1:8. Lazarus lying ' here or there unseen by us, but of

corrects such an idea.
II. The Life Which Is to Come, w.
23-31. Unconscious of the need of oth
ers here the rich man is very much
conscious of his, own need In hades
when subject to torment and anguish.
There la no need of trying to minimize
or to "explain" nor to deny these
words of Jesus. Hell is for the wil
fully1 disobedient, and was never pre
pared for man (Matt. 25:41). On
earth he saw Lazarus "at his gate,"
now with Abraham, resting "In hia
bosom." Their positions are reversed,
the petitioner is now the rich man
who begs for "mercy," though in life
he showed none at all. His plea was
for his tongue; that organ had been
pampered In life but now It Is In mis
ery, because deprived of earthly satis
faction. The "solemnity of this lesson
Is very great. As we have suggested
Luke does not call this a parable. It
is possible that Jesus' auditors knew
the very people of whom he was speak
lng, some notoriously wealthy citi
zen recently deceased, and some well
known alms-seeker. For a moment
our Lord withdraws the curtain to
let those about him read the story,
catch, for an Instant, a glimpse. He
shows ub that the attitudes of today;
determine the destinies of tomorrow!
The experience of life beyond death Is
determined by tho use ot the life "that
now is." The gate of heaven Is without
our self-centered life and often takes,
the form of a beggar. To wrongly em
ploy our wealth, to live within the
gate of selfishness will shut the gate
of heaven In our own faces. If we
pass without that gato of selfishness
and minister, presently we find we,
have made a friend In the life beyond.
It Is not the crumbs we give the beg
gar, that which we do not miss, it
must be self-emptying service. '
This lesson. raises the question, "are
the ruling desires of our lives such aa
shall develop gratification and satis
faction tn the lifo to come?" if not,
wo do well to heed this story, Col. 8:1
2, Memory Is also active In that fu
ture existence and it will be either a
source of gratifying Joy or else of un
speakable anguish. We are taught
that education Is largely developed out
of memory and the Scripture tolls us
that as a man thiukoth so Is ie, Prov.
33:7. "-Small wonder Paul should ex
hort ua to think oh holy things, Phil.

A DIP INTO SPACE
From Our Little Solar System to
v ihe Far Starry Limits.
SOME MARVELOUS DISTANCES
The Stellar Universe as We Know It
ahd What It Means In the Matter of
Miles to. Reach Its Boundaries From
the Center of Our Own Sun.
It Is worth while making an effort to
picture to ourselves the 't extent l
the starry system in wbiS we renlde
Having gullied some fill tit notion ot
the extent of the lesser solar system,
which occupies a small corner of tin
stellar system, we must work outward
from that beginning. Let us take foi
our unit of meusurcmeut the spare
which separates the earth from the
sun and let the 02.000,000 miles of till"
distance be represented In our mlncN
by a single inch. In proportion the
sun Itself must be-plctured by a tin
ball less than one hundredth part of mi
Inch, in diameter, while our earth
must be a mere speck lobs than one
ten-thousandth of an Inch In dlnmeter
And this little sun and this minute
earth must be just an inch asunder
Following but the same Idea, Mer
cury and Venus, being closer to the
sun than we are, have to be less thitu
an Inch away from him, while Jupiter
will be live Inches off. Saturn will be
ten inches off, Uranus will be ovei
nineteen Inches off. Neptune will he
almost thirty inches off. Then the so
lar system as a whole, leaving only
out of the question certain comets
which travel fatther. will be inclosed
in n circle less-tlum two yards In dlam
The question arises next. What will
be the proportionate size of the stellar
system on this same scale of meosure
ment? If the solar system Is to be
' comprised with n hoop not two yards
j across how wide a space should we
' allow to the surrounding system ol
stars, "our "universe?" How uenr will
be the nearest of outlying stars? And
the answer Is sufficiently startling. If
the sun is reckoned to be one Inch
away from our earth. If Neptune Is
i reckoned to be less than three feet
awuy from the sun. then on the same
1 scale the star which lies closest of all
outer siars In the whole universe to us.
Alpha Centaur! by name, must be
reckoned as lying at a distance of
aboutthree mid a halt miles. And be
tween the two nothing; nt least noth
ing in the shape of a star. An occa
sional comet may lag slowly along in
the darkness, finding Us way from one
sun system to another, and dark bod
ies, cooled suns, may possibly float
three and a half miles, every inch of
those miles again repiesenting more
than 90.000,000 miles And then we
come upon one gleaming star. Only
one quite so near. Another star in the
sun's "vicinity." known as 01 Cygnl.
would He at u distance of seven miles,
and the brilliant Shins would be over
ten miles off. Others must be placed
at distances of twenty miles, fifty
miles, 100 miles. It is easy to start
with a list of these figures It is not
easy to say where one should stop
That tho starry system has limits we
do not doubt, but to define those limits
Is not possible. On such a scale as Is
given above those limits certainly
would not lie within u distance of 100
miles nor of 1,000 miles.
It is believed that some dim stars,
barely to be detected, may be 10,000
lmes as far away as our sun's nearest
neighbor. Alpha CcntuuH. and this at
once gives, eveu on our much reduced
scale, a line from the center of 35,000
miles. Suppose that the limits of the
of i-kllo i oironni I ii i ciininnlinia o limit'
TbjrtyWtlitiiiMmd miles each
way from the center would mean a di
ameter for the whole of 70.000 miles.
Imagine a starry system 70.000 miles
across from side to side, each Inch In
those miles representing 02.000,000 of
real miles, and somewhere In the midst
of It our small solar system. Just two
yards across, separated from all other
stars by a wide bliiuk of three or four
That would be stupendous enough.
But we have no reason whatever for
supposing that the limits of our uni
verse do lie there. The true boundaries
of the stellar system may be twice as
far, fQur times as far. ten times as far. 1
We do not even kuow with certainty
that our solui system Is placed any
where near Its center, though this
seems rather likely, Car off as the
boundary rent-hoi In one direction. It
may reach muih further In another di
rection. Chu'mbers' Journal.
An Ant Illusion.
The idea of mutual aid among ants
Is pronounced by M. Cornetz, a Freuch
entomologist, to be an Illusion. In tils
observations, a slncrle ant drags a load
rapidly toward the nesL but when
others take hold r-f the object they
pull In different directions, and slow
progress Is made.
The gain of lying Is nothing else but
not to be trusted any more, nor to be
believed when we say the truth. Sir
AN AID TO MEMORY.
Merely Make an Appointment
Your Subconscious Mind.
You have often read that if you want
to nwnkeu ut a certain hour In the
mornltii? you have only to impress your
subconscious mind with that hour
upon retiring and you will nwaUcu at
the appointed time without dlllleulty.
Perhaps you have tried the experiment
and been successful
I have discovered a way by which
the method can be extended and made
still more successful.
Supposing you want to remind your
self of something of importance that
you need to do early on the following
day. You might write It dovn and put
the'Tnemorandum under your wntch or
fasten it to the pincushion on your
dresser, but it Is n bother to have to
uso a mechanical memory tickler for
such a purpose. It Is like using crotch
es to walk with. What is your memory
good for if It needs bolstering up con
stantly by this sort of expedient? You
can teach your memory better habits
Here is tho way: Soy to your sub
conscious mind at night, "When I am
putting on my shoes In the morning 1
shall remember that I am to do so and
so." describing the thing you wish to
recall to mind.
By connecting your affirmation with
a specific net like putting on your
shoes you give the mind a sort of peg
to hang tho mental record on, and you
will find tho results will be more posi
tive. Of course you can If you wish
substitute any other act connected
with the morning activities for that of
putting on your shoes. The Important
thing is to make your affirmation posi
tive and specific by connecting it with
gome act that you perform every morn
ing. You see, you are making an appoint
ment with your subconscious mind to
meet you nt a certain place with cer
tain reminders, and it Is very neces
sary that the meeting place should bo
a familiar one and clearly understood.
It should stand out sharply in the im
pression you give your subconscious
mind, and then tho recollection will be
coiTcspoiuVimly sharp and clear. Tho
more familiar and common the act
with which you hitch up the afflrma
tlon the better.-William B. Towne In
PROBLEMS OF CIVILIZATION.
Are Too Stupid and Narrow
Solve Them, Says Shaw.
We are n stupid people, and we are
a bad looking people. We are ugly, we
have narrow minds nnd we have bad
manners. A gieat deal of that Is due
to the effect of being brought up in a
society of inequality. I know perfectly
well what happened to myself.
I can remember one of my earliest
experiences In life was ray father find
ing me playing with n certain little
boy In the street nnd telling me 1 was
not to play with that little boy, giving
me to understand that he was a very
Inferior and objectionable kind of lit
tle boy. I had not found him so. I
asked my father, "Why?" lie said,
"His futher keeps a shop." I said to
my father, "Well, but you keep a mill."
Therefore my father pointed out to me
that he sold things wholesale and that
this little boy's father sold things re
tall, and that consequently there was
between me and that boy a gulf which
could never be respectably bridged.
When you are brought up, as you In
evitably are In a .society like ours, with
that sort of blasphemy being continu
ally dinned into your ears; when you
are taught to be unsocial at every
point and brought up to be unsocial,
then any little chance that your natu
ral endowments at your birth may
have left you of being able to grapplo
with the enormous problems of our
modern civilization problems that de
mand from you the largest scope of
mind, the most unhesitating magna
nimity, the most sacred recognition of
your spiritual and human equality
with every person in the nation is ut
terly destroyed That is why. I doubt
whether those problems can be solved
by us. brought up in that way. To
solve them you need a new sort of
'human being. tieorge Bernard Shaw

RIG MASTER BOB
By CAROLINE DWYER.
The little, fa lilonably dressed
woman with the lorgnettes looked
hopelessly at the long line of push but
tons and letter-boxes on either side
of tho door before she found the
name. At last, with a little, reck
less gesture, jsho pressed the button.
The hall door clicked, and she began
tho long tramp upstairs. When one
calls at an apartment house one al

the top floor.
At the head of the fifth flight a
door clicked open. Mrs. Van Leyden
found herself looking Into the face
of a young, dark-haired woman.
"Miss Farrell?" she asked.
"Come In," replied the other short
ly. She led her Into a gaudily fur
nished room, in the middle of which,
upon a hard, straight, velvet-covered
chair, sat a fat woman in middle life,
evidently Miss Farrell's mother, for,
except for the added years and em
bonpoint, the features were almost

the daughter and at tho mother and
"Mamma!" caid Miss Farrell.
"O, all right," said the stout wom

had been reading, withdrew into an

"Van Leyden," said the visitor.
A light of understanding came into
Miss Farrell's eyes.
"Not Bobby Van Leyden 's mother?"
she asked, apparently much amused.
"Robert Van Leyden is my son,"
answered the other quietly.
"Then I guess I know what you've
come for," retorted Miss Farrell. "Sit
down, won't you? Well, stand if you
prefer. You have heard that Bobby's
mashed on me and want to stop It
before it gets to the wedding bells?
Well, don't trouble about that. My
acquaintance with Bobby has not
progressed beyond letters and flow
ers and notes asking me to come out
to supper after the play Is ended.
I'm not stuck on your son." -
"I think I understand your mean

no fears that my son will commit "

If she suspected why, she would have
no more to do with him. Marion has
pride, and my son, I'know, loves her.
He is just a foolish, stage-struck boy.
Miss Farrell, won't 'you put an end
to this nonsense?" She hesitated, and
the other woman turned upon her
"Now don't you offer me money,"
she cried, "or I'll I'll marry him!"
Mrs. Van Leyden said nothing; her
tearful gaze, however, was more ef
fective than words.
"Some people," said Miss Farrell,
"think that if a woman is on the
stage she doesn't amount to much.
And that's where they guess wrong.
Why, if my Joe even heard of Bobby's
notes he'd wring his neck."
"You are engaged then?" inquired
the visitor, more gently.
"To the best man In the world," an
swered Miss Farrell, twirling a soli
taire upon her finger. "And for Joe's
sake and perhaps for Bobby's girl,
though she'd be well rid of him, In
my opinion I'll do wha,t I can."
"But It must stop at once," cried
Mrs. Van Leydbn tearfully. "What
can you do? Robert is very deter
mined and very reckless."
Miss Farrell went to her secretaire
and pulled open a drawer, from which
she took a letter.
"Read that," she said, handing it to
Mrs. Van Leyden.
Mrs. Van Leyden read It with hor

"Will he take you to the Imperial

him?" inquired the actress.
"Of courso he would. But what are
you going to do?"

"I will. But you you're not going
there with him?"
"Now take it easy," answered the
younger woman, patting her visltor'a
hand. "I promise to put a finish to

ing her head. But Miss Farrell
leaned back in her chair and laughed
till the tears ran down her cheeks.

WHO PAYS FOR CHLOROFORM?
This Question Frequently Arises
When Dogs, Cats, and Other An
imals Are Injured.
When, in the course of human
events. It becomes necessary to chlo
roform an Injured cat or dog, whose
place is It to pay for the anaesthetlcl
That is a question which frequently
arises. Dogs and cats, whose natural
agility was not sufficient to keep them
out of the way of automobiles and de
livery wagons, every day, are merciful
ly dispatched by humane citizens
Sometimes the policeman who is sum
moned carries the injured animal to
a vacant lot and shoots It, but usually
out of consideration ff . public safety
the chloroform route is chosen. In
that case the questions Is: "Who shall
buy the chloroform?"
Ingenuous bystanders expect the po
liceman to buy It, but he rarely lives
up to their expectations.
"That animal ain't hurt bad." is what
he usually says. "It don't need no
chloroform. I'll notify the S. P. C. A."
The sympathetic crowd, however,
think the animal ought to be put out
of suffering at once. Sometimes a par
ticularly affluent person contributes
the required amount to buy the drug,
but more often it Is obtained by taking
up a collection.
Lonely New Yorkers.
There are 750,000 single men and
women In New York. Of these 350,000
are men and the remaining 400,000
women paBt their twenty-fifth birth
day. The statistics have set ministers and
social workers -thinking and wonder
ing what they can do to bring those
isolated members of the human family
together. The chief reason for their
not being married is that they do not
have the opportunity of meeting. The
women work In the daytime and most
of them retire to hall bedrooms or at
the best to third-story fronts at night
The men also work In the daytime and
though the freedom of the city is
theirs at night thousands of them are
i lonely and would welcome a place to
meet women of their own sort.
I Social centers, courting parlors,
night schools and settlement clubs are
among the means being used, but all
too ineffectively according to the stag-
! gering figures to bring the lonely men
and women together.
