LESSON 11, SECOND QUARTER, INTER
NATIONAL SERIES, APRIL 9.
Text of the Lesson, John xi, 32-45.1
Memory Verses, 33-36-Golden Text,
John xi, 25-Commentary Prepared
by Rev. D. M. Stearns.
[Copyright, 1905, by American Pzess Aocia.ton.j]
This is one of the saddest, but ul
timately the most glorious, of all the
events in the ministry of our Lord.
Back of it all stands the glorious truth,
'Jesus loved Martha, and her sister,
and Lazarus" (verse 5). And the great
truth that "God is love" is at the
foundation of and all through the
whole purpose of God as revealed in all
Scripture (I John Iv, 8, 16). We must
ever keep it before us and rest firm
ly upon It, remembering always that
"as for God, His way is perfect" (P's.
His great desire for us at present is
to conform us to His image and use
us to make Him known. Hereafter
He will share with us all the glory
which the Father has given Him
(rom. viii, 28, 29; John xvii, 22). As in
thp case of the man born blind, so in
the lesson story of today all was for
the glory of God, that. the Son of God
might be glorified thereby (vers6 4 and
ix, 3). Notice in verses 11-14 that
Jesus calls death a sleep, but it Is al
ways the body and never the soul that
is said to sleep. Consider the con
sciousness of those in Rtev. vi, 9-11,
whose bodies had been slain, and see
also.Phil. 1, 21, 23, and Luke xvi, 22-24,
which is not called a parable.
After two days Jesus, knowing that
Lazarus was then dead and buried,
started for Bethany, and when Martha
heard that He was coming she went
out to meet Him and greeted Him
with the words, "Lord, If Thou hadst
been. here my brother had not died"
(verse 2.). Just what she meant by
verse 22 in view of verse 24 does not
seem very clear, though this may have
been her thought, "Although I know
that my brother shall surely rise again
at the last day, God can raise him now
'if Thou wilt ask him." Yet verse 39
-seems against this. Jesus knew her
thoughts and just what she meant, and
He revealed Himself to her as the res
urrection and the life, assuring her
that the dead would rise and the living
be changed without dying at the ap
pointed time (verses 24-26). Her grand
testimony, "I believe that Thou art the
Christ, the Son of God," must be plac
ed beside Peter's in Matt. xvi, 16; John
Martha returned to the house and
secretly conveyed to Mary the mes
sage, "The Master Is come, and calleth
for thee,'' after which Mary hurried to
Him and greeted Him with the very
words which Martha had used, but
~there may have been a difference in
the way they were said and the
thought back of them. We like to see
been there (Luke x, 39), but never be
fore under similar circumstances, for
truly she had not passed this way here
tofore (Josh. lii, 4). See others at Jesus'
feet in Luke viii, 35, 41; vii, 38.
When Jesus saw Mary and her
friends weeping He groaned in the
spirit and was troubled (verses 33, 38).
We, too, groan within ourselves wait
Ing for the redemption of the body
(Rom. viii, 23: II Cor..v, 2, 4), and the
Spirit Himself pleads for ius with
grnonings. But this wordin our les
son is a wholly different word, and Is
only used three times elsewhere (Matt
x, 30; Marki, 43; xiv, 5). In the first
two it Is translated "straitly charged'
and in the last "murmured against."
It might indicate His indignation
against sin and death, as in dos. xl11,
14, where He says, "0 death, I will be
thy plagues; 0 grave, I will be thy de
struction--looking onward to the time
when the last enemy, death, shall be
destroyed. Not only did Jesus groan,
but this shortest verse in the whole
Bible says, "Jesus wept" (verse 35).
When He saw the rebelliousness of
Jerusalem and the woe that would
surely overtake them He wept over the
Coming to the tomb, He orders the1
stone removed, but Martha ob.jects,
thinking the case hopeless. Jesus
gently rebukes her unbelief 'With the
words, "Said I not unto thee that if
thou wouldest believe thou shouldest
see the glory of God?" (verse 40), re
minding us that the great thing is to
believe in spite of everything, in spite
of sight or feeling or circumstances.
"Be not afraid, only believe" (Mafk v,
36). The stone being removed, He
talked with His Father In the pres
ence of them all, that they might have
another strong evidence that the Fa
ther sent Him, for He always glori
fed 'the Father. Then He cried with
a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth,"
and Instantly Lazarus was alive and
well and standing at the grave's mouth,
but he was still bound hand and foo'.
with grave clothes and the napkin was
about his face.
Some one has said that unless He
had mentioned TLnzarais by name all
the dead had come forth at the sound
of that voice-and by the power of His
word (John v, 28, 29). How suggestive
the next word, "Loose him and let'hlm
go!" Standing at the -grave's month.
bound hand and foot, he had life and
health, but he could .nether walk. nor
act He had life, but not life abun
datly (John x, 10), justlike so many|
believers today. They have heard His
voice and received Him andtlve (John
1, 12; v, 24), but are hinderefby tradi
tion and unbelief anddoubts an& fears
ad the face of man and~many things
which the adversary Is always ready
to suggest, but the same word that
gave life will give liberty, and in this
you may have a part' for those who~
were free set him free.
Champion ILiniment for Rheumatism.
Chas. Drake, a mail carrier at Chap
inville, Conn., says: "Ch.amberlain's
Pain Balm is the champion of all lini
ments. The past year I was troubled
a great deal with rheumatism in my
shoulder. After ~trying several cures
the storekeeper here recommended
this remedy and it completely cured
me." There is no use of anyone suffer
ing from that painful ailment when,<
this liniment can be abtained for a.
small sum. One application gives <
srompt relief and its continued use for 1
a short time will produce a permanent 1
cure. For sale by The R. B. Loryea

ODD CHINESE CUSTOM.
It Is Etiquette to Belittle Oneself
and One's Services.
In China, as in Japan, custom re
quires that one who has performed a
meritorious service should belittle it,
and one who has been selected for hon
ors should declare himself unworthy.
Who can imagine an American office
holder writing such a letter of accept
ance as this, which the biographer of
Li Hung Chang quotes from Tseng
Kwo Fan, appointed viceroy of Nan
"Being of no ability and having not
withstanding been intrusted with the
most important duties, I have, as I
tottered along, failed to do anything
"When some years ago I went to
Shangtung I did not succeed in subdu
ing the Nienfei, but returned to Nan
kin and was ever after ashamed of
myself. Last year I was graciously
nominated viceroy of Chill, but I
made unsuitable appointments, mis
managed the army and failed to do any
good for the Yellow river. I tremble
as I think of my blunders, and in con
sequence I am overwhelmed by the
gracious order which directs me to re
sume rly former important post and
thus displays your majesty's confidence
in me instead, as would be just, of
reprobating me for my worthlessness
and dismissing me."
As it happened, this was from one
of the most honest and best beloved
Chinese who ever governed NAnkin
and was almost worshiped by the peo
ple of the province.
THE WET TABLECLOTH.
It Puzzled the Ship's Passenger Until
It Was Explained.
The understeward in setting the ta
ble poured a half glass of water on the
clean white cloth and placed a dish of
fruit on the puddle he had made. He
made another puddle and placed on it
the carafe. On a third puddle he placed
the butter dish, and so on.
"Why do you spoil the cloth with all
that water?" asked a passenger.
"Because the weather's rough, sir,"
said the steward, and then, making an
other puddle, he went on:
"We stewards on ocean liners must
not be merely good waiters-we must
be good wet weather waiters. And we
have a number of tricks.
"One of our tricks is to set the heavy
dishes upon wet spots. If we were to
set them on dry spots in the ordinary
way they would slide to and fro with
every lurch of the ship. But If the
cloth is wetted they don't slide. They
adhere to the wet place as though
glued to it.
"One of the first things a steward
earns is to set a stormy weather table
-to spill water on the cloth at each
placewhere a heavy dish is to stand.
This water serves its purpose thor
oughly, an'd it doesn't look bad, either,
for the dish covers it No one knows
of the wet spot underneath."-New
Beggars In England.
Beggars who feign diseases are no
new thing in the streets of London.
They existed in Charles II.'s time, only
then the beggar was called a "ruffner,"
a "huff"' or a "shabbaroon." If he was
deaf and dumb he was called a "dum
merer." The woman who sung hymns
and led borrowed children by the hand
was called a "clapperdozen." Vagrancy
is no new thing, though it practically
did not exist in mediaeval times. It
was when the cities ceased to be con
fined within their own walls and long
before the days of policemen that the
people got beyond the control of the
aldermen and their officers and va
grancy became a regular profession.
The first English law against beggars
was made by Henry VIIL., who gave
licenses to beg to the old and impotent
and ordered that all other beggars
should be whipped and sent back to
More Than Skcin Tight.
Senator J-oe Blackburn, who was
quite a dandy in his younger days,
once ordered a pair- of trousers from
his tailor, and as the fashion then was
to wea'r tight nether habilaments he
emphatically demanded that this par
ticular pair be skin tight. In due time
the trousers were sent home and tied
on, whereupon the senator sent for the
tailor and proceeded to open fire.
"What in the blankety blank blank
have you done with these trousers?" he
demanded. "You told me to make them
skin tight, sir," faltered the tailor.
"Yes; but, by the great horn spoon, you
overdid it," roared the senator. "I can
sit down in my skin, but I can't in
How Chicago Is spened.
In sorting over the letters for Chi
cago a man in the general Chicago of
fce has kept an account of the number.
of. different ways the word Chicago is
spelled. Recently the record showed
197 different ways. Some ripe scholar
in Finland sent a letter .to his brother
and spelled the name of the Garden
City, Zizzazo. Still another foreigner,
possibly with a sinister motive, spelled
the word Jagjago. Hipaho, Jajijo,
Scheechacho, Hizage and Chachicho
are also prime favorites.
He Found It.
"I meant to have told you of that
hole," said the kindly host to his friend,
who had suddenly disappeared, in the
course of a stroll through the grounds,
into a pit full of water. The friend
climbed out and shook himself. "It
doesn't matter," he said cheerily. "I
found it."-London Globe.

plucked everybody in this neighbor
hood."-Detroit Free Press.
