Since on October 8 we had a lesson

I. A Warning Against Covetousness
1. The Occasion (wv. 13-15). One of
the company requested Jesus to be
umpire in a disputed estate. Two
brothers were in trouble over an In
heritance. Christ refused to enter the
sphere of the civil law and warned
against the spirit, of avarice. Christ's
mission was preeminently spiritual.
2 En forcement of the Warning (vr.
16-21). The parable of the rich man
dhows clearly that to be concerned
with earthly riches while neglecting
God Is the height of folly. The Lord's
warning Is of great importance today;
fhe many are seeking gold and forget
tina God. Note (1) his increase n
goods (v. 18). is riches were rightly
obtained, for the ground brought forth
plentifully. This shows that a' man
may' be rich because of the .Lord's
blessing upon him. (2) His perplexit)

FAMED NEW ENGLAND CHURCH
dIfice Erected at Bennington, Vt., 100
Yeats Ago, Known All Over
Early this month the First Congre
gational church in Bennington, Vt.,
which has the double distinction of
being the first church built in the state
of Vermont and the reputation of be
ing the most beautiful example of
colonial church archttecture in north
ern New England, celebrated its llath
The Bennington church is famous
all over the country. It has been
photographed perhaps as often as any
church in the United States, a day
seldom passing without some tourist
halting for a snapshot. It is located
on the heights at the western side of
the township overlooking Bennington
The First church was organized- the
first week of December, 1712. This
was before Vermont had become a
separate state, and while it was a
part of New Hampshire.
In connection with its construction,
there is an entertaining legend. In the
days when the Bennington folk de
cided that they must have a church,
there was but one book on church
architecture in the whole district, and
this was owned by an architect in
Bennington. The local folk studied
the book and devised the church after
suggestions contained in it.
After the church was built it be

and, soon, other townships wanted to
build and sent to Bennington to bor
