LESSON FOR JUNE 21
THE GREAT REFUSAL.
LnSSON TEXT-Mark 10:17-31.
GOLDEN TEXT "Yo cannot serve God
ami mammon." Luke 10:13. (Read also
The story of this rich young ruler
is one out of the ministry of our Lord
that has made an indelible impression
throughout every succeeding genera
tion, TMs Is so because it is so vital,
vibrant and vivid a revelation of our
every-day experience. The lesson nat
urally divides itself into two sections.
Read carefully the parallel accounts;
Matt. 19:16-30 and Luke 18:18-30.'
Man of Courage.
I. An Eager Young Man, vv. 17-22.
This man Is an arresting figure. Much
may be said in his favor: (1) He was
young (Matt. 19:22); (2) He was in
earnest, "came running" (v. 17); (3)
He was educated, "a lawyer," Luke
18:18; (4) He was rich, Mark 10:22;
(5) He was loved by Jesus, Mark 10:
21. That he had lived a clean life Is
roVealed by the answers he made to
Jesus. Moreover he must have been
a man of some courage, belonging as
lie did to the ruling class, the Phari
sees, yet ho came running Into the
presence of Jesus and cast himself at
his feet. We need but to recall that
this class was at this time definitely
hostile to Christ, yet this young man
dared to speak' the conviction of his
heart in this public way by calling
Jesus, "good." We feel that he was an
honest seeker after life. His question
reveals the unrest of the human heart.
It matters not what men may possess
of wealth or position, these things do
not bring heart rest. Great moral
courage, noble aspirations and benevo
lence never will save nor fully satisfy
the human soul. Man does not obtain
life by doing. Gal. 2:16. Life is a gift.
Rom 6:23. We must not misunder
stand the reply of Jesus (v. 18). Jesus
did not deny being good, John 8:46;
14:30; 8:29, but he saw that this
young man was filled with the idea
of his own goodness. To say that Jesus
was good was practically to say he
was God, and this the young man did
not mean, Jesus sought to reveal to
him his careless use of words. Jesua
undoubtedly here lays claim to deity
and subsequently he said, (v. 21) "fol
low me," 1. e., for this man to yield
Ills life actually to the control of God,
Last week we were taught to "make
friends by means of the mammon of
unrighteousness; that when it shall
fall they may receive you Into the eter
nal tabernacles." This Is exactly what
Christ told this young man to do.
"Sell . . . give to the poor." By thus
using he would store up treasure in
lieaven. That he could not stand the
test is evident from v. 22.
Perils of Riches.
II. The Master's Exhortation, vv.
23-31. As a great teacher and philos
opher Jesus took this occasion to point
out the perils of riches. Nearly every
man is willing to run the risk. We
have, however, but to look about us
to see Illustration after illustration ol
the truth of these words. "How hard
ly" Increased wealth, decreased piety.
"How hardly" men seek to tone down
this picture, but have no right so to
do. The only safety Is found in the
words of verse 27, "with God all things
are possible." The most severe test
possible to be given to a man's relig
ious experience is for him to be pros
pered In wealth or position. The rich
young ruler is an evidence of the fact
that ouch a godless life is a restless
Notwithstanding his possessions, his
refinement, the privileges of his posi
tion and a life so cleanly lived as to
leave no vulgar moral scar, yet he ex
claims: "What shall I do that I may
inherit eternal life?" It was easier
for the proverbial camel to have en
(ered the city gate (or a
aeedle'a eye aB you prefer) than for
this young man to yield to God the
control of his life. Every life Is under
control. A godless life Is a self-controlled
life. As men came to Jesus he
saw perfectly their individual needs;
their peculiar malady.
The disciples were amazed at the
master's words and thought if a rich
man cannot be saved there is hope
for none. Such Is not the meaning.
This 1b revealed in the reply to Peter's
question. Men are saved irrespective
ot position or of possessions for God ,
loves them all. Those who turn the
control of their lives over to his keep
ing, those who, no matter what their
condition or position in life, follow
him, leaving all, or bringing all as the
case may bo, will have their reward
here in this life and in the world to
come, eternal luo.
The one thing people most dread Is
poverty, so did Jesus and he saw that
the possessions ot this life so occupy
the time and attention of men as to
Impoverish their souls. Wealth is a
trust. God looks upon every man, as
Jesus beheld this young man, endowed
with great possibilities and coveta
that life for high service. Are we
more anxious to be rich than to be
good? Is it not an evidence of selfish
ness to let those come after ub dis
tribute our wealth? To enjoy it, gloat
over It and to use It for yourself, then
dlotate who, why, or how others may
eajoy It Is selfishness.

LONG the path by the river we
heard the slow tramp of heavy
military boots. In the breath
less science of the summer
evening they rang clear and
hollow on the sun-baked soil Russian
soil and the Russian soldier guarding
it constantly stopped and listened in
tently, as he peered through the dusk
over toward the opposite bank, which
was Finland. The country on both
sides of the river was typically Fin
nish, for the frontier Is only an artifi
cial one wide strotclica of pine for
est, broken here and there by sand
hills and wooden houses, writes Nor
man Ebbutt In London Graphic.
As wo stood there, Styopan ArByen
ovltch and I, the soldier came up to
us. He wore the field uniform of the
Frontier corps, khaki with green fac
ings. AcroBs his back was slung a
rifle loaded with fixed bayonet.
"Good-day," he said grufily.
"Good-day," we replied.
He made a step forward, but halted
again and turned to us. It was silent
and lonely, and the thirst for com
panionship was upon him.
"Any luck?" he asked, referring to
the fishing-rods we carried.
The river was not an Ideal one for
fishing, and Styopan Arsyenovitch held
up three sm?ll, thin fish on a string
the total result of an afternoon and
evening by the river.
Watch for Revolvers.
The soldier laughed.
"Fish tomorrow by the washing-hut
yonder; the water's deep there; it's a
good place. Yesterday I saw a man
catch one there nearly as long as his
hand." And he laughed again.
"How long are you on duty?" asked
"Six hours' patrol, six hours for eat
ing and sleeping, then another six
hours' duty, and again six for rest.
It's a hard life," added the soldier
"What are you watching for?" I
"Smugglers," was the curt reply.
"Yes, I know. But what do they
"Matches," said the soldier. He was
being diplomatic In his simple way.
Now the show of force all along the
Finnish frontier Is not simply Intend
ed to prevent the free entrance of a
few matches. The reason of this
amazing "Inland" frontier Is explained
by one word revolvers. Revolve! s
are bad enough In Finland anyway,
without the Russian revolutionaries
being supplied with them by their
Finnish brothers. That is why, when
the train from Finland enters the
frontier station of Blelvostrov, gen
darmes, armed with swords and re
volvers, line up along the whole length
cf the platform. That Is why a soldier
of the Frontier oorps, with loaded ri
fle and bayonet fixed, walks up and
down the line so that there shall bo
no escape on the off-side. Here, right
In Russia Itself, Is a line guarded by
the same corps which forms, as It
were, a ring of steel round the whole
If one comes by road It Is the same.
At the Russian end of the bridge
across the river stands a sentry-box
and a guardhouse. Crossing the bridge
from Finland one Is obliged to pass
directly in front of the sentry, who,
at a word from his sergeant, orders
you to halt. He then runs his hands
carefully all over you, feeling the
shape of each object In your pockets.
Looking for matches? No, for revol
vers. I have seen, on the table of the
officer commanding at Blelvostrov, a
pile of twenty or thirty revolvers, con
fiscated from travelers.
But of all this, nothing from our
friend who patrolled the river.
"Matches," he said, and one had to be
oontont with that.
I took out a box of matohe and
lighted my pipe.
We spoke of an occasion when our
dvornlk (gardener and goneral serv
ant) was arrested. There had been
much dissatisfaction at tho announoo-
A ,'" Z'&vW;
ment, at the beginning of the summer,
that nobody would be allowed to cross
from one side to the other In boats,
as several cases of smuggling had re
cently occurred. After long negotia
tions, my host, an officer of high rank,
obtained special permission to cross
the river "for the purpose of attend
ing church only." His wife took" ad
vantage of this the very next day, and
Ivan, the dvornlk, rowed her over.
Ho was just In mld-stieam o'n his way
back when the guard perceived him.
"Halt!" ho cried, as he unsluug hia
rllle. Ivan, overcome with fear, lost
bis head, turned back agajn, and
pulled like a madman for the opposite
bank. The soldier promptly fired
three times Into the air, and after a
short Interval again three.
By this time, Ivan, having regained
his senses, obediently crossed and
gave himself up. But the soldlor's
shot had given the alarm, and roused
the frontier, and In a few moments
an ofllcer and two troopers galloped
up, fully armed. Ivan was taken
away to the barracks, shouting, Im
ploring, and protesting with great In
dignation. In due course he was set
Peaceful Afternoon Disturbed.
The explanation of this dramatic
bcene, which so rudely disturbed a
peaceful summer afternoon, was that,
It being only the day after the permis
sion was granted, all the soldiers had
not yet been Informed of the new
Our soldier chuckled as he thought
"He was a fool, that man," he re
marked. "A big fool. He should have
stopped. He might have got a piece
of lead In that stupid head of his."
Again I lit my pipe. It was getting
late, the sky was peppered with stars,
and the silence had grown more
breathless than ever, broken only by
the Jumping of some belated fish not
yet asleep. We talked a few minutes
longer; the sentry told us how he sat
In holes In the bank which he dug out
in the soft earth with his bayonet, and
watched for hours unseen; and we
related how a friend had smuggled
over a lot of matches. In spite of his
Insistence that matches, and matches
alone, were the cause of his being
there, this Information did not seem
to Interest him. We said "good-night,"
AND FINLAND MEET'
the soldier continued his solitary
tramp, and his heavy footfalls died
away In the distance. As we turned
'o go I lit my pipe once more, and
then only did I notice that the box of
matches which I had brought out sev-H
eral times during the conversation
was of Finnish manufacture. I had
bought several such boxes secretly
(and cheap) at a little shop In the vil
lage where the shopkeeper winked as
ho sold them. Contraband, of course,
and the soldier must have noticed
them. But, then, that diplomat was
after bigger game.
' Poor Courtiers.
The Emperor Menellk of Abyssinia,
about whose death there appears to be
no doubt this time, was a bit of a
humorist In his way.
On one occasion an American mis
sion pesented him with some firearms,
Land he immediately opened fire from
tho throne, to the consternation of his
retinue, who fled for their lives.
Hearing that the mission carried
some blank cartridges for saluting
purposes, he asked for a few.
"I am going to my country place at
Addis Alem next week," he said, when
they gave him the cartridges, "and I
expect to amuse myself with these
cartridges. I shall be accompanied
by many officers, and I shall be able
to teach them to show courage under
