lint If our Savior's
words be true, that
for "every Idlo
wo d that men
shall speak, they
shall glvo account
In tho day of Judg
ment," talking Is
pretty serious bus
iness. It Is said of
Samuel that "Tho
!.ord let nono ot
his words fall to tho ground," In oth
er words, none of them wero lost,
but all found their way to their proper
destination, did their appointed work
and returned Inden with blessing to
the God who gave them.
In tho Saviour's prayer recorded In
John 17, Me says, "Father I barn fin
Ishe.. the work which Thou gnvest
Me to do." Finished! Not a word
left uiivald, not a deed undone, ot
all that was given Him to do. How
unfinished and Incomplete do our lives
seem If! comparison.
Talking Is a very potent agency for
good. When wo see how persuaMvo
tnd forceful some men aro In pre
senting a business proposition, how
eloquent In pleading a political cause,
wo cannot but wish that their talonta
wero consecrated to the service ot
Christ. And whatever one may think
about women speaking In meeting,
cerin'nly out of meeting women have
a fluency and fervour which would
make tbom vnluable allies of any
cause vhlch they might espouse.
A single word fitly spoken has
often changed ono'a whole career.

will reach a
professing Christians! Riding In the
cars with a stranger one day I opened
the subject ot religion. After a wbllo
he admitted that be waa a member
of a church. "If that Is the case," I
said, "why didn't you talk to me like
a Christian, and not compel me to
work so long to And out your posl
Hon?" "Peoplo don't do that down our
way," said he. "If I would speak
to a man who came Into my store,
on the subject of religion, what do
you suppose he would think of me?"
"He would probably think you were
a Christian," I replied. "Well, no
one talks about religion down our
way, not even the ministers. Wo
never hear from them on the subject,
except from the pulpit."
That Christians do not talk moro
about tho' thing ot the Kingdom Is
a constant surprlso to the unsaved,
and often aa occasion ot doubt. Said
a skeptical lady to a friend of mine,
"I will tell you why I am a doubter.
I was In a sewing society last week.
Forty ladles were present and every
ono a church member except myself.
I waa there three hours. We talked
of everything down to crazy patchwork,
but not a word about Jesus. I can
not believe that they see In Jesus
Christ any such beauty or power aa
you speak ot. I am convinced that
there Is a great deal ot sham In the
profession ot Christian people."
That It requires tact and skill to
carry on religious conversation, no
one can deny, but Is It not worth
while to study the art until we be
come proficient In It T If we follow
Paul's advice to the Colosslans, we
shall always have something to say.
U we begin each day with David's
prayer, "Let the words of my mouth
and the meditations of my heart be
acceptable In Thy sight, O Lord, my
strength and my Redeemer," we shall
keep In touch with Ood. And If w
watch for souls as those that must
give an account, we shall have oppor.
tunltles enough so that. In a short
time, we shall find Christian convex
atlon a real pUaaure to ourseJves
and a blessing to 6tbers.
Tho disciples were amazed and
tholr hearts wero hardened (vv. Gl,
52), and this even after the creatlvo
mlrnclo of foedlng thp flvo thousand
why so? It Is evident that even
thoso nearest to him did not appre
hend tho truo meaning of this miracle,
on tho contrary their hearts were har
dened, e. g., blind.
Tho real Interpretation ot Christ's
miracles Is not that we are to be
amazed at tho material manifestation
but that wo are to see tho spiritual
lesson and application.
It was a different reception Jesus
received when they reached Genne
saret (vv. C3-56). Thcro ho Is recog
nlzed at once. There they flock to
him with their sick ones and Mark
with a few deft strokes shows us the
plcturo ot a vast deal of healing. Nono
Is disappointed, for we read that as
many as touched him wero made
whole. Ills healing Is not confined
today to a single person, nor limited
to a peculiar place or shrlno.

all dishes requiring cooking the cheeso

fat tn cheese, nnd cooking fat changes
its character, breaking It up Into glyc

Soft Cooked Egg.
Allow one pint of water for two

Nothing Is more tempting for break
fast than a light, fluffy omelet, so
tender that It almost vanishes at a
touch. Tho secret of a good omelet
Is to beat much air Into the eggs and
then apply a moderate temperature In
rooking that the albumen may not bo
toughened. The air In the eggs will
expand by the heat nnd be retained by
the albumen ns It Is hardened. My
favorite recipe for an omelet, which
may be served with tomato, cheese or
oyster sauce, Is as follows:
Four eggs, half teaspoonful of salt
a few grains of pepper, four table-
spoonfuls of water and one tablespoon-
rui of butter. Separate yolks from
whites. Heat yolks In a bowl with
a Dover beater until thick: add salt
pepper nnd water. Heat whites until
stiff, cutting and folding the yolks Into
them until tho mixture Is blended.
Melt butter In omelet pnn. nnd when
moderately hot turn In mixture, spread
evenly, plnce on range where It will
cook slowly about twelve minutes.
Keep the temperature low until the
Inst minute, when It may be raised
to brown the bottom. When well

adding salt, pepper, milk nnd crated

following method of baking custard.
bat a simple dessert is a baked
custard! It Is a favorite with almost
every person when baked until firm.
with no Indications of watcrlnesa.
And yet, possibly because It Is so sim
ple. It very often appears more llko
curds and whey than the article which
tho name Implies.
Tho secret of success Is In the meth
od of Cooking. The oven should be
moderate, only hot enough to brown a
piece of white paper In twenty min
utes, nnd the dish containing the cus

Stews and Soups.
A few pounds of the clod or forearm

Into small pieces for serving. Plunge
Into rapidly boiling water, set the ket
tle over the simmering burner or a
very low fire where It will not boll
again and cook slowly until meat Is
tender. Salt and pepper may be added
after the meat has bweu seared, nnd as
tho water bolls away more should be
added. Meat li thus cooked In a small
quantity ot water, and some of tbo
Julco ami flavor are In the liquid. Meat
is boiled In a large quantity of water
by plunging the piece into the boiling
