LESSON FOR MAY 31
THE GRATEFUL SAMARITAN.
I;ESON TEXT-T.uke 17:11-19..
GOLDEN TEXT-'Vero there nono
found that returned to glvo ftlory to God
save this stranger?" Luke 17:18.
Josus and his party are on their
lasl Journey to Jerusalem, a most
eventful Journey. It led him between
Samaria and Galilee (r. 11, marg.) and
Into, or through, an unknown, un
named village. Tb us this Is the most
heroic and momentous moment In his
tory. Jesus knew that his hour was at
hand. He knew all that awaited him
In Jerusalem, yet he "set his faco
as a flint" nnd nothing could turn him
from his purpose, hlB crowning work.
Jesus, however, was nover too busy or
In too great haste to do a deed of
The Type of Sin.
I. A Great Need, vv. 11-14. We are
familiar with the awfulness of leprosy
and that It is a type of sin. Like sin,
leprosy begins within, is insidious in
Its progress; it defies, shuts men out
of the society of the clean. It renders
Us victims helpless and hopeless, has
no remedy and receives no help 'from
men; in consumes and finally kills.
This was a terrible spectacle that
greeted Jesus' eyes as he entered the
village, for these lepers were com
pelled to live on tho outside. Notice
(v. 12) that they stood "afar off"
(Eph. 2:13), indeed, so far off that
they were compelled to "lift their
voices" in order to make known their
request, although it may have been
that (he disease had reached their
vocal organs. Tho Mosaic law com
pelled the leper thus to stand afar off,
Lev. 13:45, 46. Their salutation was
the cry of the needy made to one In
authority. The word "Master" hero
used is not that which usually means
teacher, but rather one that would be
applied to one In authority, an ap
pointee or a commander. They must
have either recognized his power or,
having heard of his miracles they ap
pealed to him to exercise a like power
on their behalf. There was no other
who could possibly give them relief,
oven so the sinners' only hope is to
meet Jesus. He, and he alone, can
cleanse them from their uncleanness
nnd wretchedness. Jesus never
passed that way again, this was their
only opportunity. Their neeft drove
them to him. Ofttlmes our distress
and need areblesslngs in disguise in
that they drive us to Jesus. Though
afar off, and though only one drew
nigh (v. 16), yet it was the privilege of
thorn all, as it is also our privilege to
'draw nigh," Eph. 2:13. Their cry
did not fall upon deaf ears (Isa. 59:1).
It was a brief, but to the point, peti
tion. They knew what they needed and
drove straight to the point. Their ap
peal to his mercy met with immediate
response, so also will the cry of the
needy sinner meet with a like re
sponse (Rom. 10:13). The record does
not tell ub about. tho faith of these
men and it is useless for us to spec
ulate. The cry of faith will have its
answer, Matt. 9:29. Their prater was
brief, it must have been humble, be
lieving, earnept and specific, for when
"he saw them" (v. 14) he gave direc
tions as to the manner whereby they
might be cleansed. Ho could have
spoken or have touched them, but
his way at that time was to utter a
command. This resulted in (a) a ful
filling of the law, (b) a test for their
faith, (c) a testimony to the priests.
They showed their genuine earnest
ness by immediate obedience, they
took him at his word. The record is
wonderfully suggestive, "as they went
they were cleansed." Faith and works,
obedience and results. When we act
upon his simple yet sublime word we,
too, will receive a blessed answer to
our every need. As we look to him,
our great high priest, as we take our
eyes off of self, we shall be cleansed.
" Bore Witness Before Men.
II. A Grateful Heart, w. 15-19.-Tho
revelation of cleansing brought differ
j cnt results to these lepers. "One of
them" camq back at once to express
his gratitude. Beforo ho could scarce
ly speak his petition, now he cries
with a "loud voice." This is a sugges
. tion as to the completeness of his
cure. He at once uses his restored
voice to "glorify God," and it looks as
though he bore hls witness before he
testified to men; (a) being healed
seems also to have opened his eyes
as to tho character of Jesus. He not
only returned thanks, but "worshiped
him." Nor does Jesus refuse to ac
cept such worship an evidence of his
deity, see Acts 15:25,26; John 5:23
and Hob. 1:6.
Tho nine were too occupied In re
joicing with their friends, too busy
with fulfilling duties from which they
had long been separated, to express
their thanks. It ia nlirnlflennt that
i :z:: ;."",- .7 ?'-
tuiB one was a oumunum a siran
'' ger." This is the one whom less
would be expected, yet Luke records
other good things about the Samari
tan, ch. 10:33-35. (Luke, as the
companion of, Paul, shows us not only
in his gospel, but In his life of Paul
Christ's outreachings towards the Qen
' tiles.) The Jews have no dealings
with the Samaritans (John 4:9), bn.t
aia makes strange companions.

"Norman, her heart is slowly break
ing!" "Do I not know It have I not seen
It through all these weary months of
agony and suspense? Still, I tell her
"Oh, Norman, hope Is dead with us
"It may be the last forlorn 'chance,"
Bald the young lawyer, "but I nra go
ing to try It. I have discovered some
new facts in the case that holds all
of future weal or woo for you and
poor dear Miriam."
"You have been as a true son to
mo, as a loyal loving brother to
Miriam. Heaven bless you!" and Mrs
Porter seized the hand of her visitor,
kissed It fervently and bedewed It
with her tears.
A vast tragedy hovered about that
humble little cottage. In an upper
room Miriam Porter was wearing her
young life away amid dark grief and
dlspair. Her mother shared that
misery, Norman Earle had sacrificed
his all to help them bear their bur
dens. John Porter, the father of tho house
hold, was a bluff honest but quick
tempered man. Six months previous
ly ho had become enraged at an in
sult from his neighbor, Rufus Dawes,
a quarrelsome shiftless fellow. Dawes
had seized a loose fence paling to as
sault Porter. To defend himself the
latter had struck Dawes with a heavy
cudgel he held in his hand.
Dawes had staggered away, bleed
ing from a wound on his head. An
hour later he was found lying insen
sible by the side of a shed, a shotgun
by his side.
There had been an arrest and a
trial. Dawes recovered his senses, but
not his reason. He was sent to an
asylum and Porter, arraigned on the
criminal charge of deadly assault, was
sentenced to ten years in the state's
Earle was paying attention to Mir
iam at the time. It was he who un
dertook tho defence of Porter. The
latter admitted that he had struck
Dawes, but claimed self defense. No
one had witnessed the quarrel.
When the case wau ended, Earle
found that he had neglected his reg
ular practice and the cost of an un
successful appeal to a higher court
Used up about all the capital he had.
Chattered Away About Her Papa.
He did not press his suit, with Miriam
under the circumstances, but he loved
her more than ever from his sym
pathy, interest and contact with the
family during their sore troubles.
"I havo discovered Borne new evi
dence," he now said to Mrs. Porter.
"It cannot be introduced in court, but
It certainly casts a new phase on
the injury Dawes sustained."
"What is it?" pressed Mrs. Porter
"I have found a man, a traveling
tinker, who was passing by the Dawes
place the day of the quarrel. He says
he saw Dawes climb up to a shed, on
the roof of which rested his shotgun.
That was after- Mr. Porter had struck
him and the half Intoxicated man
, evidently was not sorlously Injured by
the blow of the club. In a revenge-
1 ful mood he was after tho gun, to re
turn and wreak hlB hatred on your hus
band. The tinker saw him fall from
tho roof, gun and all. That fall, 1
am convinced, brought about his loss
of reason aud not the, blow given him
by Mr. Porter."
"Oh, if you can only prove that!"
fluttered Mrs, Porter.
"I am going to try to," explained
Earle "to the governor of the state.
I am going at once tb seek a pardon
Tho state capital was less than fifty
miles from Mlllvlllo. Four hours later
Earle boarded an, electric car to
make a quick run for his destination.
He was so immersed in the burden on
his mind that he ouly casually noticed
that there were only two other pas
sengers. One was a fine looking dignified
gentleman, smoking a cigar on the
front platform and conversing with
tho motorman. Tho other was a lit-
I tie girl of about seven, who occupied
1 one whole sldo seat or the car. She
' evidently was the daughter of the pas
senger outside. As Earle entered the
car. the doll the little maid carried
fell font her grasp. He restored it to
her with a pleasant smile and she
chattered away about her papa out
Bide, and how thoy had lnlsccd a
train and had to take tho trolley lino,
and how she had four other dolls at
homo nnd two sisters.
Suddenly a rough jerk of tho car
caused Earle to glance quickly ahead
and then leap to his feet.
"Jump!" ho heard the motorman
As the man nnnltn hi pnvn Mm hrnlrn
a violent pull, fairly pushed the pas-'
nengor beside him .clear free of tho
car and followed him into tho ditch at
tho side of tho rails.
"No, no my child!" shouted the
passenger, but vainly.
Tho conductor had also left the car.
Earle with horror saw that, Just enter
ing a curve, not fifty feet ahead a
great mass of rock had fallen from
an overhanging ledge. .
"Quick!" he cried, seizing the little '
child and speeding to the rear plat
form with her in his arms.
He strove to save her from Injury
In that wild leap and did so, but at'
tho cost of a bruised and sprained
arm. He carried her back to whero
her father lay insensible, lingered
about tho spot until a relief wagon
arrived and walked ahead of tho
wreck' to get on hlB way.
Tho motorman told him that tho
father of the child was only stunned
and that the little one was telling
everybody of the brave man who had
saved her life.
It was about eight o'clock In tho
evening when Earle ascended tho
steps of iho governor's mansion.
The servant was explaining to
him that his excellency had re-'
celved a bad shaking up that day
and would Bee visitors only at the '
capitol, when a prettily dressed little
girl crossed the hall. She paused and
ran towards Earle and seized his
"Oh, papa!" she cried excitedly
"come, come quick!"
"What is It, my child?" inquired a
man emerging from a room near by.
"Tho man who saved me. Oh, papa,
it's him!" ,
"I could not find you when I recov
ered my senses," said the governor, as
he grasped Earle's hand in a warm
clasp. "I left word to have you located
that I might thank you for your noble
deed. Oh, sir, to you we owe the
life of little Eunice!" '
When Norman Earle left the gov
ernor's mansion that night he carried
the promise of a pardon for the father
of the girl he loved.
The wisdom of the kind hearted
official was made manifest when later
Rufus Dawes recovered and verified
the story of the traveling tinker. ,
"My more than hero!" sobbed Mir
iam, sheltered in Earle's arms the
evening that her father was restored
to the happy family circle "a life
time's devotion cannot express the
love I feel for you!"

BARING THE SITE OF JERICHO
Excavations Are Revealing Most Inter
esting Details for Students
In tho Journal of the German Pal
estine society, Professor Thiersch
gives Interesting particulars of fur
ther excavations carried out on the
site of Jericho by Professor Sellln.
The chief work of the past year, he
says, has been the laying bare of the
great outer wall of tho city, which
Is described as "something extraordin
ary, even in Its present reduced state
something majestic and overwhelm
ing." The excavators found proof that
this outer wall Is Israelltlsh work.
The inner wall, which is "badly pre
served, is the original Canaanltlsh de
fence, which fell to tho blast of Josh
ua's trumpets. The outer wall Is
Identified bb the work of HIel, whose
achievements are described in the
First Book of Kings: "In his (Ahab's)
days did Hiel the Bethellte build Jer
icho; he laid the foundation thereof
in Abirnam, his first born; and set up
tho gates thereof In his youngest son

Professor Thiersch, "this man of res

The Anonymous Trouble Maker. I
Was ho a plain Idiot, a crank, or a
malicious mischief-maker? We are
referring to the man who recently
rang up a newspaper office and asked
If they had heard that the Oceanlo
had sunk. The question naturally led
to eager Investigation. Inquiry was
made of the company, rumors began
to fly about tho olubs, people with
relatives or friends aboard the steam
ship were filled with anxiety and be
gan telephoning and cabling; and for
some hours, until the Oceanlo was re
ported safe, without having had the
semblance of an accident, officials
were worried and many , individuals
made apprehensive. All as the result
of an anonymous telephone' message,
either stark foolishness or deliberate
wickedness! There may be no way
in which the law can lay its hands up
on such a malign trouble-maker, but, if
he Is ever identified, it ought to bo
made plain to him that everybody re
1 gards him as an enemy of the human
race. New York Post.

: WOOING OF THE MAJOR :
By C. E. BARKER.
Ho was one of the kind o.f peoplo
who come naturally by a nickname.
The major was one of the most
methodical of men. Promptly at nine
o'clock he camn down fresh and pink
from breakfast, read his mail In the
comfortable seclusion of tho writing
room, dictated the answers to his let
ters to the hotel stenographer, lit a
fresh cigar at tho cigar stand, and
then dull business cares were brushed
aside and he repaired with sprightly
steps to the bar.
One day in tho midst of tho letters,
Miss Mitchell looked up for an instant
at a lady who was passing through
"What an exquisite bunch of vio
lets," she said.
"Very pretty," replied tho major, '
following her glanco, and then they
went on with their work. j
The next morning a neighboring
florist's boy placed a fine bunch of
English beauties in the little bud vase
on Miss Mitchell's desk, and morning
after morning this was repeated.
After tho morning dictation during
one of the little chats which the major
had como to allow himself, Miss
Mitchell, one day expressed a very ad
verse opinion about tho men who
drank and were "fast."
This speech had a marked effect
upon the major.
The very next day, after his busi
ness routine, the major left a forward
ing address with the clerk on duty and
A month two months passed, and
still the major had not returned to his
old corner In the Windsor bar. Tho
onlymark of his long residence at the
hotel was the Httlo bunch of fresh vio
lets which dally adorned Miss Mitch
One day, as unheralded as had been
his departure, the major returned to
the Windsor. His complexion was
whiter and hie eyes were clearer, oth
erwise ho was the same old major,
careless, lively and Jovial.
He dictated his letters to Miss
Mitchell as usual tho text morning,
but it was observed and marked with
much special notice that he did not
follow his old habit of turning toward
the bar Immediately thereafter. In
stead of this, he stepped Into a big
automobile that stood at the door, and
was away in a trice.
At least once he asked Miss Mitchell
to ride with him, but she met the pro
posal with a cheerful "no, thank you,"
that left no room for doubt about her
A morning came on which he at
tended to his correspondence with
more than usual care. In addition to
the regular grind of business he wrote
some long delayed missives to old col
lege friends dashing, brilliant, uncon
ventional letters they were, full of the
boyish spirit which the major etill
held, notwithstanding his acknowl
edged thirty-eight years. When he had
quite finished, he drew from his
pocket an important looking paper.
"Miss Mltche)l, I have a very par
ticular matter I wish to speak about
No, you needn't take my words
down on paper I'm not dictating. The
fact is I am thinking of well, giv
ing you tho chance of dictating some
to me, If you think proper."
'"Why what do you mean, Mr. Ebs
bourne," ehe asked, her large, heavy
lashed eyes looking the utmost wonder.
"It's a very simple matter, Miss
Mitchell at least I used to think it
was when I observed the symptoms In
other folks. But don't look at me
like that you might pretend you are
taking notes; some one will see and
wonder what we are talking about "
"Oh, if it's anything Improper, you
mustn't say it, Mr. Ebsbourne." She
was plainly agitated.
"Not the very least Improper, little
one, but the most natural thing that
ever occurred to me In all my wild,
harum-scarum life. Now, listen calmly;
if what I say is not pleasing you, I 'will
slop, and we will not talk about It any
more. I love you. I can't help loving
you, any more than I could help breath
ing or living if I. didn't breathe."
"Why Mr. Ebsbourne," ehe replied,
"I don't think I care for you in any
way like that."
"I didn't expect you to, little one.
But you can give me a little hope,
can't you? You don't dislike me, do
"I think you are very kind."
"That's enough that's enough
Don't need to say another word. I'll
go now and let you get used to tho
idea of having a lover."
"Thank you," was all Miss Mitchell
could think of to say.
The eequol was nono of the major's
planning. He only knew that ho was
speeding down the river road ono
afternoon, when a young horse driven
by a market gardener took fright and
plunged about, backing the heavy
wagon directly across his way at the
moment when he supposed the driver
was going to be able to manage his
team without further difficulty.
There was a crash and the major
felt a sharp twinge of pain. When he
again opened his eyes, they were
carrying him in at the ladies' entrance
of the Windsor.
At last there came a day when the
doctor told the major he might see his
friends. The major said something In
the strictest confidence to his nurse,
and after a very long time Miss
Mitchell came up accompanied by a
sweet-faced, motherly little woman In
black, whom the major knew by in
stinct must be Miss Mitchell's mother.
"Mr. Ebsbourne," said Miss Mitchell,
timidly, "I didn't know I cared In that
way, but I do."
HOW TO KEEP A SECRET
By GEORGIA HORN.
"I'vo been out of town for a few
days," remarked Alice to her friend
Nell "Hess and Claribell Spencer en
tertained all our old school club at
their summer place, Itoso Lodge, be- ,
fore they cloaea it. There were ten
of us all told, and we had quite an
excltinjg time. I wish I dared tell you
"Why shouldn't you tell me?"
"Well, I know I really should not,
but If you'll promlso eternal secrocy,
I believe I will tell you, because you're
a friend of Virginia's and anything
that concerns her will be of special
Interest to you.
"You see, tho first night we were at
Rose Lodge wo sat on the floor before
tho blazing fire and played 'truth.' The
engaged girls all confessed, and when
It camo Virginia's turn she laughed
and said she wasn't engaged yet! I
And that was all sho would say. '
"You know how telegrams are
usually delivered by telephone in the
country. Well, one morning when 1
was straightening tho dining room a
message came over the phone for Vir
ginia. She was out walking, so I took
it for her. After the operator had
given It to me he insisted upon my
shouting It back to him for verifica
tion. Bess, Helen, Anita and Mar
caret, who wnrn thfi rtlnnnr pnmmlttnn
that day, were in the kitchen and I
heard every word. Well, their curl- .
osity was equal to mine."
"What was the telegram?" demanded
"It was. 'I earnestly beg you to re
turn unopened special delivery letter
mailed you yesterday. Deeply regret
I cannot explain.' It was signed 'John
"Before Virginia camo In from her
walk the letter Itself had been brought
by a boy from the village, and I handed
Virginia the dispatch that I had writ
ten down and the letter at the same
" 'What will you do?' we all Inquired
" 'Just what he asks, of course,' was
Virginia's virtuous reply.
"'But Virginia, aren't you almost
expiring to know what's in that let
ter?' asked Joyce.
" 'Of course I am, ehe admitted,
'but I don't think it would be right for
me to open it after getting John's mes
sage. Do you, girls?'
"'No-o, we all agreed, reluctantly.
"None of You Girls Need Help."
'But,' added Joyce, 'if that telegram
had, been delayed an hour you would
have read the letter.'
'"Yes, but the telegram wasn't de
layed.' "She left the letter lying on tho din
ing table, where it reposed all through
dinner. When Joyce, who was head
dishwasher that day, gathered tho
dishes on a tray to carry them to the
kitchen, she took the letter also. I
think I was the only one who saw her
pick it up. My first Impulse was to
ask what she was going to do with It,
but something held me back a sort
of sympathy, perhaps, for the nefari
ous plan, whatever It was, that I
thought had popped Into her head.
"'None of you girls need help with
the dishes,' she eaid with unwonted
saintllness. 'I feel that I haven't been
doing my share of the work." As that
was the general opinion, no one in
sisted upon following her Into tho
"When she Joined us an hour later
she looked dangerously Innocent 'Just
boo what has happened,' she exclaimed.
'I left the mysterious letter on tho
plate warmer above the teakettle, and
the steam must have loosened tho seal,
for the envelope is open.'
'"You little imp!' cried Virginia.
"She couldn't control her curiosity
any longer, which would have been
too much to ask of any human girl.
She took the letter and read it, and
she didn't even try to conceal from us
that it contained an ardent proposal
of marriage. I suppose wo shall never
know what caused John'e sudden
change of heart."
"Did she send it back?" asked Nell,
"Joyce put It In the envelope again,
carefully resealed it, and it was re
turned to Mr. Hartridgo without com
ment. Poor Virginia, who was really
guiltless, would be painfully mortified
if he ever learned that It was opened.
So, remember your promise, dear, and
I don't tell a soul."
I "No, Indeed, I'll nover breathe it,"
Nell assured her Impressively. "Did
. all the nine girls promise secrecy?"
