He Changed His Miod
This la-a tlmo In tho life of our
Lord that vibrates with interest aa
wo rapidly approach his last tragic
week upon earth. At tho beginning of
his Perean ministry (Luko 9:51) wo
read that Jesus "steadfastly set his
faco to go to Jerusalem." Now that
journey Is nearly ended. He had
reached a place near Jericho. Know
ing the antipathy of the rulers, those
who Journeyed with Jesus were
"amazed," and some aB they followed
him on this Journey were "afraid"
(v. 32). Jesus, therofore, and for a
third time, plainly tells his disciples
what Is about to take place in Jeru
salem. The contrast of self is the distln
guisbirg feature of the lesson of
the self-seeking disciples over against
the self-renouncing Master.
Assurance of Faith.
I. The Self-seeking Disciples, vv. 32
41. As Jesus clearly spoke to those
who In amazement followed him he
told of his condemnation and deliver
ance to tho Gentiles; his persecution,
death and resurrection (vv. 32-34). It
was then that James and John pre
sented their request. Matthew tells
us (20:20) that they made it through
their mother. It wan an Ignorant re
quest, for they knew not what it in
volved (v. 38), nor whose It was to
grant it (v. 40). He had spoken with
great clearness about his suffering
and death and Immediately they ask
a position in his glory. This may in
dicate tho assurance of their faith
in him, but It certainly Intimates that
they did not comprehend the suffering
of which he had been Bpeaklng. We
need to remember, however, that they
believed In that approaching hour of
his glory. They desired, though, to
have an association with him In his
power and authority, thus showing
their mixture of selfishness, though
Jesus seems to have Ignored It. Was
this request incited by the mother?
Evidently not to a degree, for the Mas
ter addresses his reply to the dis
ciples. In that reply he doe's say
that to occupy such a position was
dented them, or might be quite pos
sible. What he does lay stress upon
wa's what was Involved and that this
was not the time or place to lay em
phasis, in this new kingdom, upon any
other Idea than that of equality.
Je6us then clearly declared all that
was' involved In his pathway of suf
fering and propounds his question,
"Are ye able to drink the cup that I
drink?" (v. 38). It was a heroic but
ignorant answer they made, "Wo are
ahle." Their language reveals the
character, however, of those who did
enter Into that fellowship with him
which eventually led them to martyr
dom. He told them they should bo
baptized Into a strength to do and live
this life of abandonment, but that such
a life could not command any pre
eminence on that account. Their re
quest was otherwise a correct one. In
order to share with Christ In his glory
we must share his cup and his bap
tism of shame and suffering; see 14:36;
Matt. 26:39; John 18:11; II Tim.
2:12; Rom. 8:17; Matt. 16:24. James
and John (v. 39) did not stop to meas
ure the meaning of their request.
Wanted Places of Authority.
II. The Self-renouncing Master, w.
41-45. In answer to the Indignation
(v. 41) of the other ten diBciples Je
sus without any manifest impatience
calls the disciples "unto him" and sets
before them their absolute equality,
and yet at the same time a way of ex
altation, v. 43. Jesus is ever calling
us "unto him," for ho desires to lead
ua out of lives of selfishness into
those of fulness and service. These
ten were not altogether without self
ishness; they wanted the places of au
thority also. Once before, chapter
0:33-36, this same controversy had
arisen and was again manifested
(Luke 22:24) and that, too, at a sol
emn occasion, as he announced his ap
proaching death and instituted the
supper. It was not till after Pente
cost that it became possible for a dls- ,
clple to write "In honor prefer one '
another," Rom. 4: 10, Phil. 2:3. This
reply of JeEUS to the indignation of
the ten la a teaching by contrast and
accurately describes tho Gentile meth
od of self-advancement. Over agalnet
it ho sets forth the method of tho
"Son of Man." Till this present day
such are the methods of those who
are of this world only.
In hie kingdom it is different, great
ness is inverse ratio until we find
the greatest is tho one who servos
most perfectly. In emphasizing this
verse (v. 45) it is quite common to
omit tho last clause, "and to give hla
life a ransom for many." So to omit
it 1b to neglect his work of redemp
tion and overly emphasizes the altru
istic aspect of Christianity. Men aro ,
not saved by any such method. Je-
eua is the greatest example of a per- '
toot servant because he did giro his
life. Let us also remember that he
save that life and that no man took
U from him, John 10:18.

At Pasadena Ralston boarded the
California OvtTluud. He passed
through the train to the Pullman and
dropped Into the seat which had been
reserved for him by wire. A woman
in half mourning occupied the section
opposite. He could not see her face,
but he divined from tho outline of her
figure that she was young and good
Ralston, following her example, fell
to an Inattentive Inspection of the
scenery. They were being whirled
through orange groves lined with
ragged eucalyptus or graceful pepper
But Ralston was restless, and tho
scenery failed to Interest him. nor did

the magazine into which he plunged
prove of much more avail. At last ho
tossed it aside.
"What rot the magazines sometime
print!" he said, unconsciously speak
ing aloud. I
"I beg pardon. Did you speak?" I
Even as he turned his head Ralston
felt the thrill of vivid life rush through
him. He had not heard that voice for
five years, but he would have known,
it among ten thousand. The gray eyes
met the brown ones. i
Then both together, "What are you
doing away out here?"
He explained that he was on hla wny
back from the Philippines, where he
had been the correspondent of an illus
trated weekly. She, it appeared, was.
returning to the enst from a visit to
an aunt in Los Angeles. For nn hour
they talked of the people and the
places they had known. He studied

People don't change much, as a rule;
they merely develop. You were only
a girl when l left. Of course it was
open to you to develop In any ono of
several ways, but I can look back and
see that you are what one might nave
logically expected you to become." I
"Dear me, Is It aa bud as that?" she
"As good, 1 should call it," be an
swered gravely. She shot a quick
sidelong glance at him. "Often out In

senger watched them curiously and
wondered what fascinating topic held
them in stieh rapt Interest. The last
lingerer from the smoking section had
long since retired before they took any
cognizance of time. At last he looked
at his watch ubsently. He wns star
tled to see that It was past 1 o'clock.
"It must be late," she said, noting
for the Orst time that the lights were
low and that they were alone.
"No; It's early," he replied unblush-
Ingly. "Don't go yet. You'll have
plenty of time to sleep after I leave
She stayed, against her Judgment
She told herself that she would leave
him In n few minutes. He had not
mentioned love, but she felt the strong
undertow of It through nil his turbid
hpeccli. When at lust she broke away
from him It was to lie the night
through In vivid wakefulness.
For Ralston the night was filled with
the stress of emotion. The one wom
an In the world for him was In the
section across the aisle, and he had to
face the fact that he was bound to an
other. Two years before, in that utter
loneliness of soul that comes to men in
exile, he hud met Major Remington's
daughter and had asked her to marry
him. She had neither accepted nor
rejected him, but when she left for
the States three months later thero
had been an understanding between
them that he was to seek her out and
renew hlu suit when he came back to
America. He had been detained in tho
Philippines longer than he had expect
ed, but he was now on his way to her.
They were both up early from a
sleepless night und they drifted to
gether again Inevitably.
Presently they were climbing the
mountain side, with two engines In
front and another behind to push. Tho
woman could see the burning misery
in the man's eyes, nnd from him to her
there passed the subtle sense of some
alien force which divided them.
"You are not married?" she asked
"No, I nm not married."
"You mean that"
A reckless bitterness welled up in
him. "You mny congratulate me. I
am probably on my way to be mar
ried." Her level eyes fixed him. They were
both very white.
"Probably, you say. Don't you
"There was a provisional engage
ment It was understood that I was
to offer myself again when I returned."
"And you do not love her? So much
your tone Implies."
"I never loved but the one woman.
I have played at love with others."
She shivered. "It Is horrible. You
must not do that You have no right!"
"Sometimes a man has signed away
his right to do right." be answered
steadily. "I thought It all out last
night, and I shall live up to the letter
of my agreement."
A brakeman passed through the car
calling: "Next stop Ln Junta! Change
cars for Pueblo. Denver, Colorado
Springs nnd all points north of there!"
The train slackened speed, Jarred
down to a halt. He rose and looked
down on her with dumb, anguished
eyes. He did not kiss her; he did not
even touch her hand.
"Whatever happens, I want you to
remember that I never loved but the

collision with Lieutenant Hasbrough
of the Seventh infantry.
