LESSON FOR AUGUST 16
THE WICKED HUSBANDMAN.
LESSON TEXT Matt. 21:33-48.
GOLDEN TEXT "The stone which the
builders rejected, the same was made the
head of the corner." Matt 21:42 K. V.
Tuesday morning of this his last
week (Mark 11:20) the disciples saw
the fig tree withered away from the
roots. Passing on they enter the
temple where Christ's authority is
challenged. Following' his disconcert
ing reply (21:23-27) Jesus taught
three parables of warning of which
this lesson Is the second.
I. The parablo, vv. 33-39. It Is a
story of God's long suffering goodness
and'Luko (20:9) tells us that It was (
addressed to the people. We need to I
keep in mind tho previous parable of
the two sons (vv. 28-32) In order to I
understand perfectly the method ho
employed In answering tho chief I
priests. In the first he states a case
and appeals to them for a verdict. I
Without hesitation they replied and by
so doing condemned themselves. In '
this parable he states a case and asks
for a reply, v. 40. This they gave and
in bo doing declared a righteous judg
ment which must fall upon their mo
tives. In both parables Jesus em
ploys the figure of a vineyard. In
the Old Testament this stands for
Israel, Ps. 80:8-11, Isa, 5:1.
Kingdom Committed to Us.
In this case it stands for the King
dom of God which Is no longer Identi
fied with Israel but taken away from
It and given to the Gentiles (v. 43).
The Lord was dealing with the re
sponsible rulers of Israel, those fa
miliar with the prophetlo writings.
His reference to the digging and care
suggests that for his Vineyard he had
done all that could have been done,
Isa. 5:4. Being fully equipped, he
places it first of all in the care of
iBrael, verse 43. Today it is in charge
of believers, I Peter 4:10. The hus
bandman did not own the vineyard, It
was only entrusted to his care. So
In a sense, God has committed tho
kingdom to us, does his work through
us, and of a right expects an account
ing by us, see Matt. 25:14, 15; Mark
13:34; Luke 19:12.
In these parables we can trace the
whole history of Israel according to
Isaiah. The fruits he looked for from
the vineyard "let out to the husband
man" were those of judgment and of
righteousness. Their response had
ever been that of persecuting the
prophets, ill treatment of those that
were sent, and a selfish appropriation
of the blessings he bad given. These
servants sent to get an accounting
were God-commlssloned and God-in-spired,
hence it is small wonder that
such people would accord a like treat
ment of the king when he came.
This 1b still the way the world, uses
godly men, II Tim. 3:12. It reveals
the world's natural hatred 'to God,
John 15:18, 19; Rom. 8:7.
Appeal to Hearers.
II. The application, vv. 4046. Jesua
then appeals to his hearers as to
what should be done to the husband
ma'h, v. 40. They declared, "he will
miserably destroy those miserable
men and will let out tho vineyard to
other husbandmen, which shall render
him the fruits in their seasons." At
this Jesus reminds them of their
Scriptures and what they taught con
cerning the fact of the stone rejected
by the builders becoming the head of
The master's question (r. 40) sug
gests the one found in Heb. 10:28,
29. Historically, God did "miserably
destroy these miserable men." That
happened at the destruction of Jerusa
lem, one of the most appalling sieges
recorded in military history. It wa
then that the doom pronounced by
Jesus was executed when he said,
"The Kingdom of God shall be taken
away from you, and shall be given to
a nation bringing forth the fruits
thereof," see Acts 15:14; I Pet. 2:9;
Rev. 5:9. In these words Jesus for
mally and authoritatively passed sen
tence upon the nation and rejected it
from a place of service. It is signifi
cant to observe the alternative of fall
ing upon tho stone and being broken
or of having the stone fall upon and
orushipg all to dust In the erection
of the temple one is the keystone of
the whole. On that stone the build
ers were now "falling" and being
"broken," Isa. 8:15. Soon in their
corporate capacity, as ones entrusted
with a vineyard, the stone should
"fall upon them" in the destruction
of the city, and Individually and per
sonally as unbelievers, in a more aw
Once again, in this lesson we face
the fact that th chosen people were
rejected because of their unfrultful
ness, that is, they had failed to fulfil
the purpose for which they wera
created. The sin of these rulers was
that of their failure to administer
the affairs of the people In the In
terests of God's kingdom. The fail
ure of the people was that they sub
mitted to such false rulers. The su
preme value of this lesson Is In the)
revelation of the wonderful power and
wisdom of God. This Is shown by his
compelling these men to find a verdict
it bat passed sentence upon themselves.
Getting Rid of Dot Files.
The United States department of ag
riculture has thoroughly tested a very
unusual cure for tho disease of' horses
called bots. Bots are tlio larvae of the
horse bot (ly and live In the stom
achs of horses. They Interfere with
digestive processes to such un extent
as to cause loss of Ileal), general pour
tondltlon nud often death. Dislodging
Uiem Is extremely dlUlcult.
In the treatment tested the horse was
fed a little hay and outs In the morn
ing and allowed to go without food
the rest of the day. In the evening a
purgative was given. Next morning
the horse wns given three drams of
carbon bisulphide In a gelatin capsule
three times at Intervals of an hour.
When the capsule reached the horse's
stomach It dissolved, and the carbon
bisulphide, u liquid that Is extremely
volatile at the temperature of a horse's
body, evaporated rapidly. The gas suf
focated the bots and other parasites
in the horse's stomach without Injur
ing the horse In the least The remedy
was tried with complete success on a
large number of affected animals-.
Power of the Opium Habit,
In the American Magazine a former
newspaper man. who became a victim
of the opium habit and Is now n con
vict lu n penitentiary, writes a dramat
ic account of his experiences with the
drug. He gives as follows bis idea of
the power of the bablt:
"I do not believe that any man with
an opium or morphine habit of years'
standing can deny himself the drug if
It is within reach.
"I do not believe that any man, no
matter what his previous character
may have been, can use opium contin
uously and not have the Impulse to be
crooked, lie may not be crooked, ho
may lack the nerve or the necessity to
steal, but the Impulse will be there,
and if It ever becomes a question of
theft or a 'ha bit' he will thieve. This
is the history of every opium smoker I
have ever known."
The Invention of the Panorama.
The panorama was Invented by a
Scotchman named Robert Barker, who
obtained a license In London in 1787
and erected a rotunda on Leicester
square. He was associated with Rob
ert Fulton, the practical inventor of
the steamboat who introduced pano
ramas into Paris in 1700. but resigned
in favor of Thayer perhaps in order to
give his attention to the application of
steam to boats. Thayer raised a ro
tunda on the Boulevard Montmartre.
whence comes the name of the Pas
sage des Panorunias. Bonaparte caused
plans to be drawn up for eight pano
ramas, In which his conquests were to
be shown to the Parisians, whom he
always tried to impress with the mag
nitude of the achievements In order to
keep them faithful to his star. But
these projects were never realized.
"Ah, yes, there are still true and loy
al souls In this sad world." murmured
the solemn Individual in the tortoise
shell glasses. "1 used to know a dear
girl it was ten long years ago and
not a year has passed since that she
baBn't written me a birthday letter.
Always what she writes Is about the
same: 'Dear Alfred, I can't ever forget
not If I live to be a hundred, this day
of all the days in the year. Let me
once again wish you long life and hap
piness with all my heart,' etc."
"Very sweet of the girl," said the
stout young man with the amazing
waistcoat "very sweet of her indeed."
"Very," replied the solemn individu
al, "only, you see, she writes that
dashed letter to me on a different day
every year." New York Post

EVOLUTION OF A P0LLYW0G.
Changes That Mark the Transition of
This Curious Creature From an
Aquatic to an Air Breathing Animal.
How It Differs From the Toad. i
There Is no more Interesting creature
on earth than u pollywog. or tadpole
for it Is u fish In the process of trans
formation Into a land unlmal. Tin
whole process can be watched if you
put a few pollywogs In a milk bottle
or Jar full of water with Boine water
lu any of the ponds In the parks In
the cities or In the pools In the suburbs
in the proper season frog spawn can
be found. It floats on the water like
masses of sago pudding. A handful
of this will furnish entertainment foi
several weeks and will at the same
time give a lesson lu evolution.
The spawn that floats on the ponds
Is the eggs of frogs. They lay It lu
the first warm days of spring, spread
lng It where the rays of the sun will
warm It. Each egg contains a yolk,
which is the food of the living germ
within, and is coated with black, prob
ably to attract as much heat us pos
slble and at the same time to protect
the' germ from the penetrating ultra
violet rays of the light, which would
destroy it The bluck yolk Is lu the
center of a mass of transparent Jelly
which Is there as a protective covering
If a small mass of spawn be placed
In a Jar of water and watched dally
with un ordinary magnifying glass the
black yolk of each egg will presently
be seen to assume u sousuge-llke shape
Gradually this takes the form of a tiny
pollywog. which soon begins to wrlg
gle. After a few days these little blni-k
bodies wriggle out through the trans
parent jelly and attach themselves to
bits of green sticks or weeds, which
should be placed In the Jar with thera
For some time they remain attached
to such supports by n sucker, waitliu
for the opening of the mouth. As yet
there are no visible eyes, but sniull
stumps on each side of the head will
be noticed. These are the gills. The
whole skin If examined with a lens
will be found to be covered with a sort
of animated velvet pile, for Its compo
nent threads are in constant motion
thereby creating a stream of fresh wa
ter to carry on the work of breathing
and n little later these movements will
be strong enough to bear the body
slowly along, so that locomotion nt this
stage is like that of the lowliest of llv
lng creatures, the protozoa.
When the mouth appears the Inside
of the great fleshy lips and the jaws
will be found to be armed with rows
of horny teeth numbering many huu
dreds. The gills will also have grown
considerably. These, however, room
give place to Internal gills, and the
water taken at tho mouth passes out
again by a small funnel on the right
side of the head. This flsbllke stage
disappears with the appearance of the
The hind legs next appear, and as
these develop the mouth is closed for
alterations No food can be taken, and
during this enforced fast the tadpole
supports life by consuming its tail:
This Is slowly digested by a process
not yet clearly understood By the
time this- strange feast has ended the
new mouth and the lungs have np
peared the tadpole has become a frog
and leaves the water for the land As
a tadpole it 'fed by rasping off vegeta
ble and animal matter with its teeth:
as a frog It feeds by Jerking food Into
Its capacious mouth by the flick of a
very sticky tongue.
Newts and toads In their pollywog
stage can scarcely be told from frogs
but newts remain water animals, wear
lng tails, nil their life. Some of then
retain their gills also, but most ot then
develop lungs and have to come in tit
surface to breathe. There aie few .pt
des which have neither gills nor lungs

Insurance and Assurance.

ance and assurance? An expert ex

burglary, mumps or any disease are
eventualities, and you can consequent

a certainty against which no company
will insure you. But you secure the

MILK AS A FOOD.
It Has More Dry Matter and Nutrition
Than Some Solids.
The food value of milk, though a
hackneyed topic. Is woith a moment's i
consideration, writes D. S. Ilurcb In
Farm and Fireside. Though it Is n
liquid, milk contains more dry matter
than some solids. Skeptics can sur
prise themselves some dull day by put
ting a pan of milk lu the Inner part of ,
a double boiler, evaporating It and ob
R'jvlng the dry matter It contains.
W figures that follow ore Interesting,
too, from a food basis: '

Milk 12.5 310
Mushrooms 11.9 133
Oysters 11.7 225
Spinach 7.7 95
Tomatoes 5.7 100
Notice that milk contains more food
solids and units of energy than any
article in the list Milk also Is more
nourishing than tea, coffee or the com
mon Boups aB ordinarily made.
It also has this advantage, that prac
tically all of its solid matter Is digest
ed. It really contains no waste. I
A quart of milk weighs about 2.1 ;
pounds, which makes milk almost al
ways cost less than 5 cents a pound,
fue cheapest of all common foods ex
cept flour nnd grain products, cheap
cuts of meats and starchy vegetables
such as potatoes. All these products
require preparation and cooking, which
add to all their original cost and should
be considered In preparing foods.
The method for selecting tho best
grade of milk from the kinds availa
ble Is a question which the consumer
must help himself to answer. The best
general rule Is to observe the keeping
quality of the milk. If kept in a
clean place at n temperature of CM) de
grees F. or less, good milk will remain
sweet twenty-four hours after delivery.
RIOT OF POSTAGE STAMPS,
A Room and Its Furniture Literally
Covered With Them.
I Within easy walking distance of the
old cathedral town of Chichester, Eng
land, is the Rising Sun. in North
Bersted, a house of interest to all who
1 collect stamps, for the little Inn con
tains a room that Is covered, every
inch of it with postnge stamps I
I Ceiling, walls, doors, chairs, tables,
picture frames all parts of the room
' except the floor are thickly covered,
' while from the celling hang long fes
toons nnd ropes made of bundles of
stamps for which there was no other
room. There are fully 2,000.000 stamps
pasted up and 1,000,000 more in these
festoons, while great bundles, one of
which holds 00,000 stamps, hang among
. the heavy loops.
I But it is not only the amazing num
ber of stamps that attracts the visi
tor's attention. There Is evidence on
all sides of great Ingenuity. The pic
tures Inside the stamp covered frames
are of stamps themselves. The celling
. is ornamented with a great star. The
arms of the neighboring town of Bog-
i nor are over the fireplace and the
j tablecloth shows the Eiffel towerl
Queen Victoria is surprisingly lifelike
in carefully chosen stamps of different
colors. The Prince of Wales' feathers
and the crown are also represented.
Most of the stamps are penny English
' stamps, but there are others from all
over the world. One door is a bright
yellow, covered entirely with the Swan
River stamps of Western Australia.

held that men did not hear it simply
