SNOW REALLY A BLESSING
Denver Newspaper Rejoices at the Re
markable Fall of "the Beautiful"
Throughout the State.
It has been said before. Let it be
said again. The snow that you swept
from your walks, that sifted down
your collars, that got into your hair,
your eyes, your tempers, is worth a
million dollars to the agriculturists of
Colorado. To the dry farmer who
plows it into his soil it will bring re
wards in a next year's bank account.
Lying in the mountains it will flow
down the ditches to the irrigationists
next season. On ranch, in orchard
and truck garden it means moisture
and money. To the city it means
health that always comes from sea
sonable weather. Wade through it
with a smile on your lips, shovel it
with song In your heart, roll it into
balls and throw at your neighbor with
a laugh and a cheery word. It spells
temporary inconvenience and future
prosperity-and a white Christmas for
the public tree that brought all Den
ver-all Colorado-into that new, bet
ter, greater, get-together bond of
friendship and work.-Denver Times.
GRANDMA USED SAGE TEA
TO DARKEN HER GRAY HAIR
She Made Up a Mixture of Sage Tea
and Sulphur to Bring Back Color,
Almost everyone knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur, properly compound
ed, brings back the natural color and
lustre to the hair when faded, streaked
or gray; also ends dandruff, itching
scalp and stops falling hair. Years
ago the only way to net this mixture
was to make it at home, which is
mussy and troublesome. Nowadays,
by adking at any store for "Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy," you
will get a large bottle of this famous
old recipe for about 50 cents.

can possibly tell that you darkened
your hair, as it does it so naturally
and evenly. You dampen a sponge or
soft brush with It and draw this
through your hair, taking one small
strand at a time; by morning the gray
hair disappears, and after another ap

Calumet the Secret of Economy
The high cost of living nowadays, and
the way prices are steadily climbing sky

even more important than it was in the
good old days of our thrifty ancestors.
But how to achieve economy? There's

Ecornomy in baking, as every good cook

bIgger losses by far than the savings she
makes in buying. And the fact that Calu

LESSON FOR JANUARY 18.
THE GOOD SAMARITAN.
LESSON TEXT1'-Luke 10:25-37.
GOI.IEN TEXT-"Thou ushalt love thy
neighbor as thyself."-Mark 1_.31.
Probably no other parable given by
Jesus except possibly the Prodigal
Son, has made such a deep impres
sion as this (ne. It has inspired al
truistic service, promoted the idea of
the brotherhood of man, and served
to crystalize Christian thinking and
1. "What shall I do?" vv. 25-29.
(1) The first question. This lawyer
in his test question implied that eter
nal life was dependent upon his
works, a well nigh universal Jewish
idea. With a true teacher's skill,
Jesus drew from his own knowledge
of the law an answer to his question.
viz.: that, on the ground of doing he
must love the Father with an undi
vided heart; with all his soul, the
seat of his emotions; with all his
strength-energies: and with all his
mind-his intellectual powers. The
evidence of such a love is that he
must love his neighbor as himself.
Summarized the Law.
(2) The second question, (v. 29).
Jesus had not said anything to this
lawyer about belief, or faith, for he
was not yet ripe for that idea. He
had summarized the law and by this
law Jesus must teach him. Rom. 3:19,
20; Matt. 22:37-40. It Is one thing to
read and summarize the law, and
quite another to rightly apply it. It
is quite possible to be ultra orthodox
in our teaching and in our statements
of belief, and yet to fall far short
of doing. The force of this second
question is then, "Who must I love?"
He avoids asking, "Who can I love?"
The question was not as to who will
be neighbor to me, but to whom shall
I be neighbor? In answer to this
Jesus employs this wonderf'e parable.
(Note:-Explain the nature of a para.
ble and the Master's frequent use
II. "Go and do thou likewise." vv.
30-37. That this story is not alone
a parable but a literal experience is
pretty generally believed. "The way
of the transgressor" is a Jericho road,
and the traveler therein is bound to
be "stripped," If not always of his
prosperity, then of his character, and
will ultimately find himself "half
dead." If left to himself he will sure
ly die, Rom. 5:6; 6:23. Jericho means
"curse." Who then is the man I can
neighbor? Any wretch that is pass
ing along the Jerico road. Remem
ber that Jesus is dealing with the see
ond half of the summary of the law.
Three classes of men passed this
man; (1) The Priest, of all men the:
most likely to help that fallen one,!
created in the image of God in whose
worship he led. It Is easy to find an
excuse for this exhibition of heart
lessness. The danger of robbers; of
being suspected of complicity in the
crime; the duties of his important of
fice; the danger of contamination; a
work not suited to his position in life.
Let us beware of too hastily judging
the priest until we examine ourselves.
(2) The Levite. Perhaps he had
seen his superior in the temple wor
ship; he drew nearer than the priest,
perhaps for the purpose of investiga
tion, but offers no remedy. (3) The
Samaritan. This ostracized man
would have been snubbed and cursed
by the wounded man under any other
circumstances. He therefore could
certainly have been excused had he
followed the example of Priest and
Levite. He is a type of Christ dealing
in grace with one who had no claim
upon him. Note the steps: (a) "He
journeyed," are we to be found visit
ing the places of great need? (b)
"He came where he was," evidently
not from idle curiosity, but to meet
a case of need. (c) "He saw him."
Too often our eyes are blind to the
misery about us. (d) "He was moved
with compassion." The compassion
of Jesus was an active principle.
Does misery move us to action? Does
it send us to cases of need, or do we
wait for them to knock at our door?
(e) "He bound up his wounds." Not
acting by proxy; not sending him to
a public institution. Real charity is
accompanied by warm, sympathetic,
Christ-like, human hearts in action.
(f) "Brought him to an inn and took
care of him."
Love Is Costly.
It cost the Samaritan much to act
this way. Racial pride, aesthetic re
pugnance, commercial obligations,
perhaps family duties, to say nothing
of the actual expenditures of time and
money. But love is a costly thing.
Jesus himself fully portrays this pic
ture, John 3:16. The road was away
from God's city, Jerusalem.
It is not so much the doing as the
motive that compelled the doing. It
was not duty but desire, compelling
love, that Jesus Is exalting. Altruis
tic service never saved any man, I.
Cor. 13. On the other hand, to make
high sounding professions and not to
give a tangible, material evidence
which will affirm that profession, is to
sound the note of insincerity, Jas.

In his annual report Dr. E. F. Bash

members of the society that during the

All of these had been investigated and
no justification for any one of these
claims had been obtained. Dr. Bash

Good Bowels Are
An Aid to Growth
Growing Children Need a Mild
Laxative to Foster Regular
As a child grows older it requires
more and more personal attention
from the mother, and as the func
tions of the bowels are of the utmost
importance to health, great attention
should be paid to them.
D)iet is of great importance, and the
mother should watch the effect of cer
tain foods. A food w'ill constipate one
and not another, and so we have a
healthy food like eggs causing bilious
nefss to thousands, and a wholesome
fruit like bananas constipating many.
It is also to be considered that the
child is growing, and great changes
are taking place in the young man or
yotung woman. The system has not yet
settled itself to its later routine.
A very valuable remedy at this
stage, and one which every growing
boy and girl should be given often or
occasionally, according to th:' individ
ual circumstances, is Dr. ('aldwell's
Syrup Pepsin. This is a laxative and
tonic combined, so mild that it is
given to little babies, and yet equally
effective in the most robust constitu

to constipation give a small dose of
