LESSON XIH. SECOND QUARTER,INTER
NATIONAL SERIES, JUNE 25.
Text or the Lemsos. a Comprelhensive
Quarterly lIeview - Golelen Text,
John xx. :l-Com anentary Prep-nred
by Rev D. M. Stearns.
LESSON L.-Jesus the Good Shepherd
(.ohn x, 7-I.S. Golden Text, John x. 11,
f1 :un the Good Shepherd. The Good
Shepherd giveth Ills life for the sheep."
That we may know Jesus as the Christ,
the Son of God. and, receiving Him,
h:ive life, is the Golden Text of the
quarter and the summary of the gos
pei. That we may have life He laid
down His life for us. bearing our sins
in His own body, suffering in our stead,
as we have seen in recent lessons.
LEssoN IL.-The raising of Lazarus
(John xi. 32-45). Golden Text. John xi,
25. "Jesus said unto her, I am the
resurrection and the life." IIe wh6 vol
untarily laid down His- life for us, for
n'' one could take it from ITim (x, 18).
has power to recall the absent spirit
and give life and health. even to such
a corrupting body as that of Lazarus.
Marvel not, for the time is coming
when all that are in their graves shall
hear His voice and come fort,..
.LEssox I.-The supper at Bethany
(John xii. 1-11). Golden Text, Mark xiv,
S. "She hath done what she could."
Mary of Bethany represents life abun
dant truly worshiping. "Martha serv
ing and Lazarus in Tcommunion, but
note how these forms of life abundant
affect others. Disciples murmur, and
the religious world would kill it if they
could. A mere form of life can be en
dured even by the devil, but real life,
ahundance of life, wvells and rivers of
living water, how few can endure'
Lxssox IV.-The entry of Jesus into
Jerusalem (John xii, 12-20). Golden
Text. 'Matt. xxi, (), "Blessed is He that
cometh in the name of the Lord." One
great truth in this lesson is the literal
fulfillment of Scripture by Him of
wiom 'Moses in the law and the proph
ets wrote. In the volume of the book it
is written of Him, He is the substance
of every shadow. the reality of every
sacrifice. truly the -Messiah of Israel,
the King of the Jews, the King of
kings and Lord of lords.
1.;sox V.-Jesus washing the disci
ples' feet (John xiii, 1-14). Golden Text,
Gal. v, 13, "By' love serve one another."
He knew that Ile had come from God
and was going back to God, and He
would teach His disciples, to whom He
had given 1he glory which the Father
gave Him, that while here In humilia
tion, waiting for the kingdom to come,
we must not in any way seek our own
greatness, but humble ourselves to
walk with God.
LEssoN VI.-The vine and the branch
es (John xv, 1-12). Golden Text, John
xv. S, "Herein is My Father glorified,
that ye bear much fruit." The fruit is
borne by the branches, but It is the
vine that does it through the branches,
and the branches simply abide, subject
to the care of the husbandman. When
the Christian life is understood there
is a freedom from all anxiety and yet
the growth and beauty of the lily and
the fruitfulness of the vine.
-LEssoN VII.-Jesus prays for His fol
lowers (John xvii, 15-20). Golden Text,
John xvii, 9, "I pray for them." Not
only does He give us His own Spirit to
live in us, teach us, guide us, comfort
us. but He assures us that it is His life
secures our life and that He ever liveth
to ninke intercession for us (John xiv,
19; Rom. viii, 34). He does not save us
to take us out of the world to heaven,
but to leave us here as His witnesses,
kept by His power.
LnssoN ~VIII.-JeSus before Pilate
(John xviii, 2S-40). Golden Text, John
xviii, 37, "Every one that is of the
truth heareth My voice." By His 'suf
ferings Mle made a full atonement for
sin, even tile sins of the whole world,
and to this we can add nothing, but
His conduct before Pilate and while in
the hands of His enemies' teaches us
how we should act before our enemies,
for if we are truly is and living god
l lives we will be hated by the world
and fin many enemies.
LEssoN IX.-The crucifixion (John
xix, 17-30). Golden Text, I Cor. xv, 3,
"Christ died for our sins, according to
the Scriptures." The hour came for
which He came into the world, and He
became a curse for us, for it Is written,
"Cursed is every one that hangeth on
a tree." Happy indeed are all who, see
Ing Ihis sufferings, truly say, "For me,"
and, receiving Him, cry gratefully,
"Christ bath redeemed me from the
enrse of the law'"
LEssoN X.--The resurrection (John
xx, 11-23). Golden Text, I Cor. xv, 20,
"But now is Christ risen from the dead
and become the first fruits of them that
slept." The resurrection is that which
makes all else effective, for if He be
not risen there is no one saved, nor ev
er will be (I Cor. xv, 14-19). If He is not
the risen Christ lie is nothing, not even
a good man, for He said that He would
rise again the third day. .But He is
risen, and Gal. Ii, 20, may .be the lan
guage of every 'believer.
LEsSSON XL.-The message of the risen
Christ (Rev. i, 10-20). Golden Text,
Rev. i, 18, "I am He that liveth and
was dead, and; behold. I am alive for
evrmore." This is His testimony as
He appeared to John In Patmos over
sixty years after His return to the Fa
ther as our ever living High Priest
ministering to His people. He lives; He
LEssoN XIL.-The heavenly home
(Rev. xxii. 1-11). Golden Text. Rev. iii,
21, "To him that overcometh will I
grant to sit with MIe in Mvy throne." If
redeemed by His precious brood, we
are in confiet with the world, the flesh
and the devil, but while waiting for the
kingdom and living to hasten it we
may make manifest in our lives a sam
ple of it by seeing His face, serving
Him only and reflecting His glory.

A FAMOUS STAR GROUP.
The Constellation Orion In Legend
- afd Literature.
The constellation Orion is mentioned
in the literature of all ages. In Egypt
it represented Horus, the young or ris
ing sun, in a boat surmounted by stars,
closely followed by Sirius, which was
shown as a cow. It has also been
found sculptured on the walls of
Thebes 5.000 years ago. And on the
men of that early time it shone down
from the same position and with the
same brightness as it does on us today,
a striking example of the unchange
ableness of the heavens.
From the days of the early Hindoos
to the present the constellation has for
some reason borne always a stormy
character. Allusions to its direful influ
ence are found everywhere among the
classic writers. Thus Milton wrote:
When with fierce winds Orion arrived
Hath vexed the Red sea coast.
The loss of the Roman squadron in
the first Punic war was ascribed to the
fleets having sailed just after the ris
ing of Orion. The group has also been
employed as a calendar sign, its morn
ing rising indicating the beginning of
summer, its midnight rising the season
of grape gathering and its early even
ing rising the arrival of winter, with
its attendant storms. In recent times
the group has always represented a
great hunter or warrior. Its present
title came into Greek astronomy from
the Euphrates and originally signified
the light of heaven.

time to hunt a doctor or go to the store
fotr medicine. Mr. Barber, says: "I
have tried Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy which is
one of the best medicines I ever saw.

have had saveral attacks of colic and it

Three Years of Age.
At three years of age John Stuart

France. he learned French as a relaxa

before breakfast, five hours between
breakfast and dinner and- two or three
in the evening. Being fot the time
master of his own hours and not sub
ject to a stern father, he took lessons
also in his spare hours in music, sing
ing, dancing, fencing and riding, but
never became proficient.
At sixteen Mill could speak in debate
with adults with ease and freedom.
At eighteen he contributed to the
Westminster Review. At twenty-one

Ten Times Easier.
It i, ten times easier to cure coughs,
roup, whooping courgh and all lung
and bronchial affections when the
bowels are open. Kennedy's Laxative
Honey and Tar is the original Laxa
tive Cough Syrup. Gently moves the
bowels, and expels all cold from the
system. Best for coughs, colds, croup,
wooping cough. etc. Remember the
name, "Kennedy's," and see that the
red clover blossom and the honey bee
is on the bottle. Sold by The R. B.
It Originated In France In the Seven
The beginning of the encoi-e dates
back to some time between 1645 and
1709, probably about 1680, when Louis
XIV. demanded the repetition of cer
tain parts of an opera. The opera was
by Corneille, Fontenelie and Boileau,
which was sung before his majesty,
and the king was so pleased with cer
tain parts that he asked to have them
repeated. It took fully a century for
the ordinary opera goers to obtain the
kings prerogative for themselves. It
came about in this way: Gluck had
produced an opera which had been a
failure; but, having rewritten the
worst parts, he produced it again. One
or two songs were accepted by the au
dience with applause, and one in par
ticular was demanded a second time.
The most remarkable encores on rec
ord are those which were insisted upon
by the late king of Bavaria. Before he
was known to be insane, when merely
thought eccentric, he had plays per
formed before him as the sole auditor,
the curtain rising at midnight. If he
liked the play he insisted on having it
repeated at once. But, unlike most en
core fends, he paid liberally for them.
Though our word "encore" is adopt
ed from the French, they themselves
do not make use of it in this connec
tion. They call "Bis, bis," and obtain
a repetition.-New York Herald.
''For sevea years," writes Geo. W.
Hoffuan, of Harper, Wash., "I had a
bitter battle, with chronic stomach
and liver trouble, but at last I won,
and cured my diseases, by the use of
Electric Bitters. I unhesitatingly rec
