LESSON VilI, FIRST QUARTER, INTERNA
TIONAL SERIES, FEB. 25.
Text of the Lesson, Mark i, 1-12.
Memory Verse, 5-Golden Text, Mark
ij, 10 - Commentary Prepared by
Rev. ID. M. Stearns.
[CopyrIght, 1906, by American Prom Association.]
The two lessons following this one
and the first lesson of the next quar
ter will all be in .vlhat is known as
the sermon on the mount, and, accord
ing to the harmonics, the draft of
fishes, which was our !esson two weeks
ago; the healing of the leper and the
lesson'of today follow. in the order of
events,- that sermon.
The cg- of the leper, "If thou wilt,
thou canst," drew forth the compas
sion of Jesus, brought the touch of that
healing hand, and with the words, *I
will; be thou clean," there came perfect
health to that poor leprous body, for
Luke as a physician says lie was full
of it. Although the man was asked to
say nothing about his healing. he so
blazed it abroad that Jesus could no
more openly enter into the city, but
withdrew Himself into the wilderness
and prayed (Luke v, 10). Access to
God is as open to us as it was to Him,
for He is now there for us, but'how
little we seem to know of the power
and privilege of prayer! After some
days He again re-entered Capernaum.
and soon the house where He was
could not hold the people who came.
Luke tells us there were Pharisees .and
doctors of the law out of every town
of Galilee and Judaea and Jerusalem,
and the power of the Lord was pres
ent to heal them (Luke v. 17). Our les
son says that He preached the word
unto them. His teaching on the resur
rection day as recorded in Luke xxiv,
27, 44. when He expounded in all the
Scripture the things concerning Him
self both from the law, the prophets
and the Psalms; His teaching as set
forth in the sermon on the mount and
the Olivet discourse.of Matt. xxiv, xxv
and paralleled chapters in Mark and
Luke give us some Idea of His teach
ing at other times, but we must ever
remember that He always said only
what the Father told Him to say (John
xii, 49; xiv, 10). The highest attain
ment of teacher. or preacher is to have
Matt. x, 20, fulfilled in them, "It Is not
ye that speak, but the Spirit of your
Father which speaketh in you," or
Jer. 1, 9, "Behold, I have put my words
in thy mouth," or IT Sam. xxiii, 2, "The
Spirit of the Lord spake by me, and
His word was in my tongue."
While these blind, self righteous
Pharisees and doctors, who might be
heald if they on!y knew their need of
heiling, are listening to His wonderful
words a caie of manifest and realized
need is suddenly in their midst with
a zeal and a de.termination sure to ac
complish its end if it be at all possible
of accomplishment. These four get
their palsied friend into the presence
of the Lord Jesus in anything but
good form. Let the manner of this
man's coming-or the story of the poor
woman who pressed through the crowd
and tremblingly touched the hem of
His garment forever set aside all
thought of the manner of our coming.
The one thing to do is to come.
Jesus is not disturbed by the break
ing up of the roof nor by the apparent
breaking up of the meeting, or at least
this unseemly intrusion; but, looking
upon the sick man, he says, "Son, be of
good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee"
(Matt. 1x, 2). This He said when He
saw their faith, for nothing pleases
Him like confidence in Him, and
"without faith it Is impossible to
please Him" (Hab. xl, 0). If we were
always of good cheer, how many we
might cheer as we journey on day by
day! -But the foundation of all real
"good comfort" is the forgiveness of
sins, for apart from this there is no
peace nor comfort. The gospel that
does not proclaim the forgiveness of
sins Is not the gospel of God nor the
gospel of the grace of God, but another
gospel (Gal. 1, 0-9). The health of the
soul is of more importance than the
health of the body, for if our sins are
forgiven by' the precious .blood of
Christ we shall in due time, by virtue of
that same precious blood, have a re
eemed, a glorified body which shall
never know sickness or weakness any
more (Phil. ill, 20, 21). Whether this
man's sickness was the result of spe-,
lal sin on his part or not we do -not
know, but our Lord attended to his
greatest need first.
As the blinded, self righteous scribes
and Phiarisees who were present heard
im, as they thought, pretend to for
give sins they said in their .hearts,
"This man is a blasphemer, for only
God can forgive sins." Had they been
teachable they might have said, "This
must be our Messiah, for He forgives
sins" But they were rebels agaInst
God. This is Indeed "mind reading ex
traordinary." but all things are naked
nd open to the eyes of Him with
whom we have to do (Heb. iv, 13). See
Ps. exxxix, 2, 4; Ezek. xi, 5. How sur
prised they must have been to have
their thoughts told out bifore all the
people, but more surprised possibly
when they saw the -sick man arise
healed and, tainr p his bed, go forth
a well man! We do not wonder that
they said, "We never saw It on this
fashion" (verse 12) or, as in Luke v,
26, "We have seen strange things to
day." It is said that "they glorified
Go.d. who had given such power unto
men".(Matt. Ix, 8). but it does not say
that they glorifid this riian as God be
cause He proved Himself such by heal
ing both body and soul. His "I say
nto thee" might have reminded them
of the "Thus saith the Lord" of the
prophets If they had -not been blind and
alsied and leprous themselves, which
they weie, but, knew~ tt not.. -

The Origin of the Organization In
the Time of Jefferson.
Tammany was the heir of the spirit
of the Sons of Liberty of the Revolu
tionary war. It was kin in some of its
purposes at least to those who were
then beginning the revolution in
France. It was enthusiastic in its sup
port and approval of that revolution.
Indeed a misty legend has been handed
down from generation to generation in
the hall that the suggestion came from
JefTerson himself, who, called from
France to Washington's cabinet, was
pained to see that aristocracy, English
in its impulse and fostered by the So
ciety of the Cincinnati, wa-s rooting it
self so early in our national life. To
crush that impulse. at least to fetter It,
Jefferson gave the hint, and Tammany,
with its tomahawk, stood facing the
Cincinnati and its sword.
William Mooney. an upholsterer, but,
like many of the meghanics of that day,
keenly interested in politics, suggested
that there be brought together in an as
sociation those who dreaded the aris
tocracy and who suspected that the
purpose of Hamilton was to force the
government into something like a lim
ited monarchy. Mooney found a good
many mechanics and merchants who
thought as he did. and so a common
purpose, the grouping Impulse rather
than any cunning planning of one man
for personal advancement, brought
some of the ablest political and per
sonal foes of Hamilton and Jay togeth
er. and with some mystery of oaths
and ritual. the pipe of peace, the feath
ered headdress, even the painted face
and leathern costume. with wampum
for its ornament, these men were
bound l co.e association as the Tam
many society, or Columbian order.

BURIED LIVING PERSONS.
Horrible Custom of Japanese Prior
to Year 646 A. D.
Rrior to the year 64#3 A. D. the Japa
nese had one of the most horrible
burial customs that can be imagined
that of burying all the immediate
friends and retainers - of a prince or
other person of note in a standing po
sition around the potentate's grave and
leaving them in the earth up to their
necks to perish of thirst and hunger.
The custom cannot be said to have
been general as late as the date given,
for the Japanese records prove that in
the time of the Emperor Suinin (9T-30
B. C.) the- burial rites of royal person
ages wvere so modified as to partially
abolish former cruelties. Speaking of
a young brother of Suinin, who died
and had his retinue buried standing
around his grave, the old record
says: "For many days they died not,
but wept and cried aloud. At last they
died. Dogs and crows assembled and
ate off their heads. The emperor's
compassion was aroused, and he de
sired to change the manner of burial.
When the empress died, soon after, the
mikado Inquired of his offleers if some
thing in the way of a change could not
be suggested, and one proposed to
make clay figures of men and bury
them as substitutes."
That this did not entirely do away
with the former custom is proved by
an edict issued In the year 646 A. D.,
the date given first above, which forbid
the burial of living persons and pro
vided a penalty for further adherence
to the awful rite.-St. Louis Republic.

"Homie, Sweet Home."
"Home. Sweet Home," Payne's song,
was originally a number in the opera
"Clari, the Maid of Milan," a produc
tion brought out in 1823. The opera
was a failure, and nothing is now
known of it save the one song, which
became instantly popular. Over 100,
000 copies were sold in the first year
of Its publication, and the sale in one
form or another has been constant
ever since the first appearance of this
beautiful theme. The melody is a
Sicilian folk song and was adapted to
the words by Payne himself.

"Robbing Peter to Pay PauL'
This saying had its origin In the
rivalry between St. Peter's cathedral,
now Westminster abbey, and St
Paul's, when, in 1550, an appropria
tion was made from St. Peter's to
make good a deficiency In the accounts
of St. Paul's. Much opposition was
shown to this, and it was for the time
a popular outcry, "Why rob Peter to
pay Paul?" The saying was revived
as a proverb upon the death -of Wil
liam Pitt, earl of Chatham, in 1778. The
city of London argued that so illus
trious a statesman should be buried at
St. Paul's, while parliament held thait
the remains of so great a leader should
be placed with the dust- of kings and
that to bury him away from the Abbey
of Westminster would be again a rob
bing of Peter to pay Paul,
If you are acquinted with anyone
who is troubled with this distressing
ailment you can do him no greater
favor than to tell him to try Chamber
lain's Salve. It gives instant relief.
