LESSON IX, SECOND QUARTER, INTER
NATIONAL SERIES, MAY 28.
Text of the Lesson. John xix. 17-30.
Memory Verses, 23-27-Golden Text.
I Cor. xv, 3-Commentary Prepared
by Rev. D. M. Stearns.
[Copyright, 1905, by American Press Associationh.]
The great mockery of a trial is over.
the powers of darkness under the out
ward form of zeal for God have pre
vailed, and Jesus is delivered into the
hands of cruel men to be crucified.
Seemingly the devil is tlhe victor, as in
the death of Abel and Zacharias (Matt.
xxiii, 35) and such a host of others, but
in reference to the redeemed of the
Lord, as well as to the Lord Jesus
Himself, it is only what the hand and
counsel of God determined before to
be done (Acts iv, 28). Our Lord said
to Pilate, "Thou couldst have no power
at all against Me except it were given
thee f'rom above," and concerning all
His sufferings He said, "The cup which
My Father hath given Me, shall I not
drink it?" (John ix, 11; xviii, 11-)
There is no perfect peace to us as
followers of Christ till we also learn
this great secret of not seeing any sec
ond causes, but God only. In Pilate's
words, "Behold the Man," "Behold your
King" (xix, 5, 14), we may each hear
the Spirit saying to us, "See no man,
but Jesus only, and let Him be your
only King, your Lord and Master as
well as your Saviour." In the cry of
the Jews, "We have no king but Cae
sar" (verse 15), they deliberately re
jected Christ as King and accepted the
world rulers, under whom they still
suffer and will suffer until they see the
Lord Jesus coming in glory and receive
Him as their Messiah (Matt. xxiii, 39;
Isa. xxv, 0).
Bearing His cross, He went forth
(verse 17). and there Is no other way
for His followers (M-att. xvi, 24, 25;
Heb. xii, 12-14). Unto Him without
the camp is the only way for the true
disciple, for the camp of His professed
followers Is almost wholly given up to
formality, unbelief and fellowship with
this present evil world, all of which is
as empty as a skull. Oh, the indescrib
able agony summed up in the three
words "They crucifledHiml" (Verse 18.)
Since the Spirit thus sums it up and
does not enlarge upon it, should we do
otherwise? But think of It and picture
it as we may, let us fail as we look
upon Him to say: "For me. For me,
in my stead bearing my sins, wounded
for my transgressions, bruised for my
iniquities. that I by His stripes might
See the title on His cross in the three
languages of the then known world,
"Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the
Jews," for all the world shall yet see
Him as such, and Jerusalem shall be
the throne of the Lord, and all the na
tions shall be gathered unto it to the
name of the Lord to Jerusalem. See
the literal fullilment of Scripture in
verses 23, 24, and compare the predic
tion in Ps. xxi, 18, and be assured that
all prophecy shall be just as literally
fulfilled in His time. That which has
been Is the sure key to that which shall
be. We have in this lesson three of
the seven sayings of our Lord ,iom the
cross. The first three of the seven tell
us of forgiveness now, glory hereafter
and all that Is needed In between.
These words to His mother and to
John are His second word and Include
all the care in temr arai things .which
His m~ther might need.
If we are living In and doing His
will we are to Him as brother and sis
ter and mother (Matt. xii, 50), and the
care He gave to Mary, His mother, is
vouchsafed to us. Is it not all Included
in Rom. vili, 82; Matt vi, 83; Phil. iv,
19, and similar sayings? We might
feel like saying, "Oh, how gladly I
would' minister to His mother or to
Himself, but my life is so common
place!" forgetting His blessed "inas
much" of Miatt. xxv, 40, and the great
truth that we may always minister
unto Him and that not a cup of cold
water given in His name shall lose Its
reward (Mark ix, 41). One of His pre
cous words to my soul Is -II Chron.
xxix, 11, "The Lord bath chosen you
to stand before Him, to serve Him, and
that ye should minister unto Him and
offer sacrifice." May we ever worship
the Lord our God and serve Him only.
His second word In our lesson, "I
thirst" (verse 28), fulfilled another
Scripture, Ps. lxix, 21, but suggests
more than mere natural thirst, even as
when He sat by the well In Samaria
and asked the woman for a drink. The
sequel Indicates that it was not meat
and drink for the body which were up
permost in His mind (John Iv, 81, 84).
When His Spirit fills us we shall think
more of righteousness and peace and
oy in the Holy Ghost for ourselves
and others than any merely physical
necessities (Rom. iv, 17).
His third word In our lesson, which
is His last or next to the last of the
seven, takes us back to Gen. 1I, 1-3,
when He finished the restoration work
of that time, and onward to Rev. xxi,
6, when He shall have finished the
new earth of that time, for, whether In
creation or restoration or redemption,
He Is the same Jehovah, Jesus (Rev.
xxii, 6, 16). His finished work on the
cross when seen and accepted gives
perfect rest of soul to the truly peni
tent sinner, for the moment that this
Is seen there is of necessity a ceasing
from all one's own efforts to obtain life,
and the soul sees and rests in Him only
(Heb. 1v, 3). What a wonderful and
glorious salvation it Is, but, oh, how
costly to God, who so loved that He
gave, and .to the Son of God, who
loved nme and gave Hmsaelf for me, suf
fering even to be forsaken of the Fa
ther! "My God, my God, why bast
Thou forsatken Me?" that we might
never be Zpasaken. How shall we
thank Him?, .
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy the Very Bast.
"I have been using Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and want to say it is
the best cough medicine I have ever
taken," says Geo. L. Chubb, a merch
ant of Harlan, Mich. There is no ques
tion about its being the best, as it will
cure a cough or cold in less time than
any other treatment. It should always
be kept in the house ready for instant
use, for a cold can be cured in much
less time when promptlA treated. For

How to Ward Off Old Age.
The most successful way of warding
ofT the approach of old age is to main
tain a vigorous digestion. This can be
done by eating only food suited to your
age and occupation, and when any dis

dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and
Liver Tablets to correct it. If you have
a weak stomach or are troubled with

A Bride's 3fisappreher-sion.
It was the fIrst Sunday in their pret
ty new flat, and Mrs. G. determined
to celebrate the Joyous day with a
dinner which would make her young
husband think he had married not only
"the sweetest girl in the world," but
"the best cook." It was perfectly
lovely to set the little round dining
room table with the nicest presents,
and the preparation of a tempting
salad and dessert was not exactly a
trying ordeal, but the roasting of the
chicken made her a little nervous. Aft
er succeeding, with the assistance of
a large oilcloth book, in getting the
fowl into the oven she sang from sheer
'relief. A little later, when the music
had celsed and the silence in the
kitchen became suspicious, Mr. G.
opened the door. Kneeling down be
fore the oven, with flushed face and
tearful eyes, was Mrs. G. On the
floor beside her was the cookbook, and
in one hand was a long needle with
white thread. "Oh, dearle," she cried,
"it is going to burn my hands just
dreadfully to baste this chioken every
fifteen minutes!"-What to Eat.
is often as great as woman's. But Thos.
S. Austin, Mgr. of the Republican, of
Leavenworth, Ind., was not unreason
able, when he refused to allow the doc
tors to operate on his wife for female
trouble, "Instead," he says, "we con
cluded to try Electric Bitters. My wife
was then so sick, she could hardly leave
her bed, and five physicians had failed
to relieve her. After taking Electric
Bitters, she was perfectly cured, and
can now perform all her household
duties." Guaranteed by The R. B.

The Note the Pig Squeaked.
Among the musical gifts possessed
by Sir Herbert Oakeley, the famous
composer, organist and teacher, was an
ability to tell offhand the exact pitch
and key of any sound he happened to
hear. As a boy of four years of age
he could, without seeing the keys, name
any note or combination of notes play
ed on the piano.
An anecdote which illustrates the
musician's perfect perception of pitch

friend, the bishop of Colchester, at
High Wych and one day heard a pig
