LESSON FOR JULY 26
THE POUNDS AND THE TALENTS.
LESSON TEXT-Luko 19:11-27, cf. Matt,
GOLDEN TEXT-"Well done, good and
faithful servant, thou hast been faithful
over a few things, I will set thee over
many things; enter Into the Joy of thy
lorq.' Matt. 25121 It. V.
We are told plainly why Jesus spoko
tho first parable (v. 11). We must be
ware of confusing these two parables
though they are one In their essential
The parable of the pounds was ut
tered before tho triumphal entry of
Jesus Into Jerusalem while that of
the talents was spoken subsequently.
This association does not mean Iden
tity for each has a separate lesson.
Both have to do with an absent lord
whoso return was imminent. The
Jews looked for a "temporal visible
Kingdom and many were associating
the earthly life of our Lord with that
expected manifestation. Hence this
parable as recorded by Luke.
Issue Is Fidelity.
I. "Occupy Till I Come," w. 11-14,
noth of these parables have to do with
the return of an absent lord who will
then, establish his kingdom, In view
of this return and consummation, his
servants are to give their undivided
attention to their immediate responsi
bilities. They are to trade, to do busi
ness with that that has been in
trusted to them They are to actively
discharge their duty. Ere the visible
kingdom is established, Jesus told
these Jews, there must be a period of
preparation. Jesus, himself, Is the
"nobleman" whose ascension Into
heaven where he Is to receive a king
dom fulfils the "departure into a far
country." He will return to set up
that kingdom, Acts 1:9-11, with "all
authority," Matt. 28:18 R. V., Eph. 1:
18-23; I Pet. 3:22. He may return at
any time. In neither parable Is there
a full description of the kingdom as it
Is to be established, for both have to
do with tho servants. The Issue is
that of fidelity in each case.
The "citizens" (v. 14) include his
proper subjects the Jews, John 1:11;
Aqts 4:27-28, and In this connection
we recall their cry, "Away with him,
crucify," Luke 23:8; John 19:15. Theso
"citizens," also -Include all of his pro
fessed followers but not necessarily
regenerated men, Matt. 7:22-33. Tho
king gives ,to each servant (v. 13) a
pound (about $18.00). His deposit in
equal in each case. In ttie parable of
the talents there Is a difference in the
amounts bestowed. This last empha
sizes the fact that each is to be held
responsible according to the measure
of his own personal ability. Putting
these two together we see that all tho
servants of the king are responsible
for the one pound which Is a symbol
of the common fact of the kingdom
power, At the Bame time tho servant
is also responsible for that common
power according to tho measure In
which it is entrusted to him, in which
he is able to deal with it. The small
amount of one pound Indicates our re
sponsibility for the smallest gifts,
j Parable of Pounds.
II. "When Ho Wat Returned." w.
15-30. The parable of the pounds was
spoken to those who thought he must
at once establish he kingdom of Ood.
That of the talents was given In an
swer to the disciples' Inquiry as to
when certain things which he had fore
told would take place. Upon his re
turn all these servants will be sum
moned before him, Matt 25:18, Rom.
14:10-12, II Cor. 6:10. As Jesus stood
there, he, likewise of that as of all
other ages, saw ahead of him Jeru
salem with Its scourging, suffering
and death. Ho also saw beyond that
his resurrection and departure to re
ceive a kingdom (v. 12), a period
therefore in this world during which
his servants shall be responsible for
the core of his interests, a time dur
ing which they shall occupy, do busi
ness with what be has entrusted them
of the kingdom authority and power.
All of this will culminate in his re
turn when he will deal with those to
whom this responsibility has been
given, and then establish finally his
kingdom. In tho parable Jesus deals
with each servant separately, and em
phasizes the fact of stewardship. The
pound belonged to the king. For hla
faithfulness the first servant recolved,
T. 17, (a) the king's commendation,
and (b) authority over ten cities.
Later, (v. 24) ho also received another
pound. The second did not give quite
so good a report, and bis reward
lacked ,the approbation of the king,
though he Is placed over "five cities."
His reward was in proportion to his
'The third report was tad. It re
veals neglect, laziness, and a wrong
conception regarding the king. Ho
sought to excuBo bis Bloth by blaming
another, The excuses of the sinner
always condemn himself, not God, and
augment the sinner's guilt. The
"wicked servant" lost what ho would
not ubo. If we will not use we must
lose. Doubtless this servant considered
hlmeelf unfortunate, though' he was
judged "out of his own mouth." Re
verting again to those citizens who
bated him and would not hav the
kins to "reign over them," Jmub,
cIsm hi parable (r. 17).

On the Fourth of July
By JOHN Y. LARNED
It was predicted when the Declara
tion of Independence was promulgat
ed on July 4, 1770, that the anniver
sary of the day would be celebrnted
with the firing of cannon and such ex
plosive demonstrations of Joy. The
prediction has been fulfilled to the
present dny, but during the past quar
ter century the old Independence day
passed away forever. Tho day is
now most llttlngly celebrated by re
calling the struggle which made good
the assertion of the American people.
Here is a story of the Revolution:
New Jersey was the principal battle
ground of the Revolution. The region
between New York and Philadelphia
was a great deal of the time, deba
table ground. The British occupied
New York city and. for a portion of
the Ume, Philadelphia. Washington
stationed himself on the heights of
Morrlstown, between the two cities,
but much nearer New York than
Philadelphia. Over the lower ground,
from Trenton to Jersey City, couriers
were galloping, spies were lurking and
a stray soldier wearing the red or tho
blue was moving on some errand.
Some five miles southwest of New
ark, where the city of Orange now
stands, was the residence of a Tory
nnmed Wardle. His dnughter, Vir
ginia, had two suitors, the one a Brit
ish, the other an American officer
Edgar Plimpton, the redcoat, was with
General Howe nt New York, and
since tho army of occupation had llt
tlo to do the young Englishman made
frequent excursions to Visit the lady
he loved, while Alan Trowbridge, who
was at Morrlstown, rode In the oppo
site direction and about the same dis
tance on a similar errand.
Either one of these oltlcers was lia
ble to fall into the hands of some re
connolterlng or foraging party of the
side against which he fought. Then,
too, It was quite possible that they
might meefat the Wardle mansion.
One night (It was the Fourth of July,
by the way) Lieutenant Trowbridge,
descending the Orange mountain, gal
loped through the valley between him
and the Wardles and drew up before
the gate. Without waiting to be ad
mitted be stalked into the house, to
find Miss Virginia In the drawing room.
She was evidently much perturbed.
Trowbridge asked her if he had como
Inopportunely, If he hod not better
leave, but to all such questions she
gnve unsatisfactory replies. Neverthe
less, throughout the whole of bis visit
she appeared 111 at ease, and he found
himself obliged to do nearly all the
talking, the young lady confining her
self to monosyllables.
Trowbridge knew of the attentions
of Captain Plimpton and had come to
her to ask ber to decide between him
self and the Britisher. He began a little
speech he had arranged to that effect,
but Virginia, showing signs of still
greater embarrassment, endeavored to
check him. He persisted and Just as be
finished with the words "decide now
between him and me" a closet door
opened and bis rival stepped forth In
the dress of n citizen.
"If, this matter Is to be settled here,"
be said, "I prefer not to be placed in
the position of eavesdropper. Bather,
1 would bear my doom openly."
"How comes It, captain," said Trow
bridge, "that you ore so near the Amer
ican lines and not in uniform ? Are
you aware that if caught as you are
you are liable to be treated as a spy?"
He had no sooner spoken the words
than there was the sound of horses'
hoofs without and through the window
they could see a dozen Continental
troopers at the gata An officer dis
mounted and coming up to the door
which stood open walked Into the ball
Looking into the living room be saw
the two men and the girl. To Trow
bridge, in whom be recognized u patriot
officer, be said:
"Pardon me, sir, for entering unan
nounced, but 1 bnve been told that a
British spy was in this neighborhood
and since this bouse Is occuplpd by no
torious Tories I am likely to find Dim
"There is no spy on these premises,"
replied Trowbridge. "I give you my
word for that"
The officer looked suspiciously at
Plimpton. "I fear," he said, "that I
shall have to ask this gentleman to
give 'an account of himself."
Plimpton was about to speak to de
clare his identity when Trowbridge
"I have vouched for the gentleman,"
he said "That should be enough."
"Who is he?"
"1 have told you that be la not a
"Nevertheless I must satisfy myself
"Leave this bouse, sir."
"On what authority?"
"By order of the commander in
chief. I am Lieutenant Trowbridge of
"Pardon me, lieutenant" said the
otfber, and, turning, he rejoined his
troopers, and they all rode away.
Then followed an Impressive tableau.
Virginia, turning to Cnptaln Plimpton,
took his band in both of hers, looking
him steadfastly In the eyes. Then she
turned, nnd. throwing her arms about
Trowbridge, ber bead fell on bis
"I do not blame you," said tho cap
tain. "I only regret that 1 might not
at least have been given an oppor
tunity to do so noble an action."
Without 'another word be left the
house and never saw Virginia Wardle
