THE STORY Of

Sermon by the "Highway
Text: "One of His disciples. Andrew, Si
mon Peter's brother, saith unto Him:
There is a lad here, which hath five barley
loaves, and two small fishes." John 6: 8-9.
HILDKEN are al
and deeply influ
enced, by the sto
ries of child life.
This is the reason
that the Bible is
such a fascinating
book to them,
where the parents
or teacher under
standhowtobring out and unfold
the stories of children and' child life
contained therein. The presence of
the gentle babes lends its charm to
the sacred pages. The sound of chil
dren's feet is heard, and their voices
make sweet musics- The story of the
baby Isaac, who came to gladden the
home of that aged couple; of Moses,
resting in his little ark of bulrushes
amidst the reeds fringing the banks of
the Nile, and being found and adopted
by the daughter of the powerful king;
of Samuel, the gentle child who served
in the temple and heard God speak;
of David, the brave shepherd lad; of
the Shunamite's son, a gift from God
in answer to the prayer of the proph
et; of the little Hebrew slave at the
court of Naaman the leper, pointing
the way to the true God and cleansing;
of Jesus at Bethlehem, with the an
gels singing over His cradle, and wise
men from the east coming to worship
and offer their rich gifts; of Jesus in
the temple, when He first went up
with His parents to Jerusalem, at the
passover feast; of all the beautiful in
cidents in which the Lord during His
ministry recognized children, blessed
them, healed them, and paid the exalt
ed tribute to them of declaring that
those who entered the kingdom which
He came to establish must become as
a little child. And speaking of that
time which is yet to come, when the
"wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with
the kid; and the calf and the young
lion, and the fatling together," Scrip
ture goes on to declare that "a little
child shall lead them." Let us antici
pate that day whit?b seems so far in
the future, and let a little child lead us
to-day, yes, and teach us, too.
TO-DAY is being celebrated fn the
Sundaj- schools all over this land as
Children's Day. The tread of chil
dren's feet is heard, and their story
is told in song and verse. Songbirds
and flowers lend their music and fra
grance to the day. Everything speaks
of that charming freshness and) beau
ty which is inseparable from childhood.
And because it is Children's Day it is
but fitting that we should speak for
the children and of the children. We
want to tell the story of a little lad
whose pathway crossed that which
Jesus wajs traveling, and whose simple
deed has lived in the sacred pages of
God's word to this day. Onlj- one little
verse is devoted to his biography. "We
do not know his name. Scripture does
not tell us anything about his home 6T
his parents. A e have only thirteen lit
to tell us about this lad, and they simply
state that he was near Jesus, and had
in his bag, or pouch, five little round
cakes and two small dried fishes. And
yet by reading between the lines we
may know much concerning him, and
learn many lessons.
FIRST of all, we want to learn all we
can about the incidents and circum
stances connected with the lad as he
is introduced to us oy our iexi.
Jesus has been performing many mir
acles at Capernaum, and in the region
round about. Ah, how many homes He
brightened, sobs were turned to songs
of joy, tears were wiped away, and
smiles brought to faces that were dis
torted with pain and trouble. Into
every home where Jesus went there a
change was wrought. And itis soeven
to-day. The homes where Jesus is
invited in as guest, and where He
rules in the hearts tf those dwelling
there, discord, and unhappiness, and
trouble have to flee away. And be
cause Jesus did so much good, as
He traveled through Galilee and Caper
naum great crowds followed Him.
But it pained1 Jesus to know that it
was curiosity, and not faith, which
brought most of the people to Him,
and so He withdrew with His disciples
into a moutnam on the other side of
the lake across from Capernaum But
the eager, expectant crowds sought
Him out, traveling the long, weary
way around the shore of the lake. And
when Jesus saw them He began to
question the disciples as to how
they were to be fed In that wil
derness place, "for He Himself
knew what He would do." It is
at this point that Andrew speaks up
and directs attention to this lad, who
has the live barley loaves and two
small fishes. Some day when I reach
my eternal home in the Heavenly City
expect to meet this lad, and hear
from his own lips all this wonderful
story. It may be your privilege, as
well as mine, if you are trusting in
Jesus for salvation. But let us not be
content to wait until then to learn
some 01 the lessons which; he
SCRIPTURE "does not give us the
name of the boy. It may have been
known to the disciples. It certainly
was to Jesus. It is known and record
ed ir Heaven. But when the Holy
Spirit guided the pen of John the name
was left out and we only know the lad
by the part which he had in this won
derful miracle which Jesus performed.
The important thing was the charac
ter and life and deeds, and not the
name, inese are wnat uod always
looks at. He weighs what a boy or girl
is, and not what he or she may be
called. Family names go a long way
toward gaining favor and place for
one among men, but the eye of God
can look right through that name yon
bear and discover just what kind of a j

boy or girl there is behind it. I won
der if j our name by chance should be
lost if there is any deed in your life
which would hold you in memory, as
there was in the case of this little boy
Probably there were hundreds of boys
in Palestine who bore the same name
as this boy, and let the name be called
and all would respond and come for
ward, but call for the boy with the
loaves and fishes and just one boy ap
pears, the lad of our-text. No boy or
girl can claim exclusive right to the
name they bear and forbid any other
person being similarly named, but
every boy and girl may so live and do
that some deed will mark them as dif
ferent and distinct from every other
boy and girl. You may become known
to God, if not to your companions and
friends, as the lad or lassie who spoke
the kindly word or did the helpful
deed, who had something that Jesus
could use and freelv cave it to Him
that it might bless all those about.
I REMEMBER reading the story a
I goodmanyyearsago of the little girl
whose waking thought in the morn
ing was what she might do that would
really count . towards helping others.
Instead of waiting for some great and
noble thing to do, and idly dreaming
the morniner away, she thougrht of
something which every girl, and boy,
too, can do, wear a bright smile and
speak the cheery word. You see she
was a very practical miss and began
with the thing nearest at hand, and
that which she could do. So she
thought of all the good pure things she
could, she caught the beam of the sun
light in her eyes, she wreathed her face
in smiles, she pitched her voice to the
tune of the birds singing without her
window, and then went tripping-down-stairs,
her light heart giving wings to
her little feet. The first one she met
was Bridget in the kitchen. She had
a cloud on her face thafbetokened a
storm. The dishes rattled and banged
an impatient discord. It was enough
to . make our little girl forget her
good resolution and run off and leave
Bridget to her unhappy mood. It was
a hard place to begin. But Jesus likes
to have us begin in the hard places.
And you will see before our story is
done that it was just where this little
girl needed to begin. When our little
girl came dancing in she did not give
the ill-nature of Bridget a chance to
chill her heart. She did not say:
"Well, if Bridget is going to be so cross
and mean, I will be cross and mean;
too, to pay her back." No, she just let
that smile shine out. Her bright eyes
put to shame the downcast eyes and
frowning brow of Bridget. Her cheery
voice called out a happy: "Good morn
ing," and away she flitted with her sun
shine and her merry laugh, without
waiting to hear the surly grunt of
Bridget whichshe meant for a "Good
BUT that smile and that cheery word
braved the frown and growl of un
happy Bridget and somehow, as thej
always will, got away down into her
heart, bringing light and a new
warmth there. It set her to thinking.
The little girl had preached her a bet
ter and stronger sermon than the par-
have done. She felt sorry
and happy, too. So, instead of letting
the meat get as dry and brown as the
frown had been upon her face, and in
stead of swimming it- in grease, she
cooked it just to a turn. The muffins
in the oven felt the change of atmos
phere and came out of the oven light
and just tinged with that appetizing
brown, instead of the usual deep broAvn
and burnt bottoms. As she brought in
the well-prepared meal, the master
heard her coming and ill-naturedly
muttered to himself that he supposed
the meat was as- tough as leather and
swimming in the black gravy as usual.
But Bridget came in with a cheery air,
she forgot to set the dishes down with
a bang, and everything looked so un
usually good that the ill-humor of the
master of the house was driven awr.y.
The other members of- the family
caught the brightness and cheer, and
the little girl found she was not alone
with her smile and merry voice. And
the day so well begun ran all the day on
that little girl's smile and cheery
"Good morning." The ripples went cir
cling out until they touched the office
and store and business world of the
merchant, the social sphere of the
snother, the schoolroom and play
ground of the children. Sister, who
was generally so unobliging because
so full of her own plans, had time to
help brother with the hard parts of
his lesson, and sent him off to the knot
of playmates with new impulses at
work in his heart which made it easy
for him to be unselfish in his play and
more thoughtful towards others. How
that smile was multiplied!, now that
cheery "Good morning," went ringing
down all through the day like the
words spoken in the grand canyons
of the west go bounding from rock to
rock as the echoes increase and mul
tiply, seemingly Indefinitely, in the
distance! That little girl's name may
have been Mary, or Jane, or Clara, or
any one of the thousand and one names
borne by girls, but it's what that little
girl did and not her name, that lives for
us and interests us. So it is with the
lad with the loaves- and fishes. So it
may be w ith you, my boy, and you, my
girl. You may be one of the boys or
girls to carry the loaves and fishes
which Jesus will use to bless the ever
widening circle of those about.
BUT there is something else about
this lad which attracts ouatten
tion. Andrew says to Jesus: "There
is a lad HERE." lie was a lad who
could be found. He was near Jesus.
I wonder what his playmates were
doing at this time! I wonder if it
didn't take a good deal of moral
courage for him to leave his play and
follow Jesus! I wonder if they didn't
try to poke fun at him for wanting
to go to the Sunday school and preach
ing service and prayer meeting where
Jesus was! They do to-day, don't
meyr ne mignt nave stayed behind
and divided up his cakes and fish with
his companions and they would have
said he was a good generous; fellow
Perhaps when he started off they
taunted him with being stingy be
cause he would rather take his pos
sessions and give them to Jesus than
selfishly use them for himself. Oh,
if we could only go back and know
all that it cost that lad to bravely fol
low Jesus, and be where Jesus could
find him and use his little offering,
we would be ashamed of our coward
ice and selfishness, when we stay away
from Jesus because of the ridicule of
our associates, and because we selfish
ly want for ourselves what Jesus
would be so glad to bless and use for
others. We need boys to-day, and
girls, too, who can be found. Boys
and girls whose actrons and words are
right and clean, even though mother
and father, and teacher or employer
are not around to see and hear. One
of the greatest things that can be said
of any boy or girl is that it is known
where he or she maj' be found. The
boy is HERE! The girl is HERE!
THE only safe place for any boy or
girl is near Jesus. The manliest.
bravest, most useful boys are found
there. The sweetest, most lovable, most
helpful girls are found there I wonder
if it can be said of you, w hen Jesus has
need of something: "There is a lad
here with just what you want, Je
sus." If you give rein to that hasty
temper it will carry you away off,
and Jesus will not be able to find you
when you are wanted. If you let that
appetite, that pleasure, that hidden
sensual desire, that selfishness, that
Impure thought, that trashy novel,
that bad companion lead you away
you will miss the great privilege of
helping Jesus. It cost that lad some
thing to be where Jesus could find
him that day, and it will cost you
something to be like him. But just
think of the great honor and bless
ing which came to him for being near
Jesus, instead of away off somewhere
in idleness and sin. Thousands of
boys were doing that very thing in
the diay in which this lad lived, and
yet they are dead and forgotten. No
record is left of them, but the rec
ord of tkis Jewish lad lives to this
day to teach and encourage boys
and girls to-day to live near Jesus.
BY reading between the lines we may
know what kind of a boy this lad
was. He was a thoughtful boj-, or
else he would never have been the only
one in all that vast compan- of peo
ple who had been provident enough
to bring something to cat. He was
a generous boy, else he would not
have been so willing to give what he
might perhaps with good reason have
said he needed and must have for his
own use. He was a modest lad, for
he stood in the background until
called out by Andrew's words. He
was an obedient boy, for it is certain
he was prompt to respond to the call
and to j-ield to the request made of
him. And, as we have alread- sug
gested, he was a brave, dare-to-be-a-Daniel
boy. He dared to do right, he
dared to stand alone. We know what
kind of a boy he was at home, on
the playground, on the street, in the
schoolroom, everywhere. He was a
dependable boy. He was not playing
hookey that day. He was not idly
roaming in disobedience to parents
and to the neglect of his duties. I
have no doubt that he had been up
very early in the morning that he
might get his chores out of the way
and have a clear conscience when he
started on this trip to the mountains
where Jesus was. He was a boy
mother and father were proud of.
Sisters and brothers looked up to
him. He held the good will and opin
ion, of his associates, even though they
sometimes poked fun at him and tried
to make him believe that he was tied
to mother's apron strings.
AND this lad of our text grew to be
a man, no doubt. Anditisnot hard
to tell what kind of a man he made.
Did you ever see a sturdy young oak
tree -turn out to be a gnarled briar
bush when grown? Did you ever see
a wheat field turn to useless tares, as
it developed into maturity? Did you
ever see a brave-hearted, clean-lived
boy, who lived near Jesus, grow up
to be a wicked, bad man? It's the boy
that makes the man. It is the rul
that the good boy makes the good man,
and the bad boy the bad man. There
are exceptions, of course, in both di
rections. But it is almost inevitably
the case that what the boy is to-day
the man will be to-morrow. So it is
safe to conclude that our lad became
a good and useful citizen. He did not
become a Peter or a Paul, occupying a
prominent place in the service of God.
Scripture never refers to him again
that w e know of. But we know he w as
not idle in the service of his Master,
Whom he helped on the mountain side
that day to confer such a blessing upon
that vast multitude of people. During
the year following the incident of our
text, tidings came to the Galilean home
of our little lad from Jerusalem of
the tragic events there; of the aYrest,
trial and crucifixion of Jesus. And
years later, wjien the deadly persecu
tion settled about the disciples at Je
rusalem, and they were driven out into
Samaria and Galilee, he learned the
full meaning of Jesus' death, and His
glorious resurrection. Perhaps dur
ing these jears a sadness at the fate
of Jesus, the wonderful miracle work
er, had rested upon his heart, but
when the Scriptures were opened up
to him, and he came to know that Jesus
must needs have suffered, and died,
and risen again, and entered into glory,
light broke in upon his soul. A lively"
hope was kindled within his breast as
he came to know that Jesus was not
dead, but living, and working mightily
through His disciples. A new pur
pose stirred within his heart. He be
gan to understand the spiritual mean
ing of the feeding of the multitude and
the declaration of Jesus that He was
the Bread of Life, and he went out to
help spread the glad Gospel story.
Thus did the service of his youth
strengthen and equip him for fuller
and better service tp. his maturer years,
and so will it ever be. The faithful
ness, and kindly, generous service of
childhood will as surely become the
medium of better, truer, fuller living
when j'outh hag given place to man
hood. Here is the lesson of hopeful
ness for every boy and girl. How
surely the years which are ahead will
bear the impress of the thought and
deed of to-day. Let our little lad
come close to us on this, our Children's
Pay, and teach us hi lesson.

for the sake of other suffering

Perunahas done for me.
"I suffered for five years with

brought on hysteria and made me
a physical wreck. I tried doctors
from the different schools of medi

change in my condition. In my
despair I called on an old nurse,
who advised me to try Peruna, and
promised good results if I would
persist and take it regularly. I
thought this was the least I could
do and procured a bottle. I knew
as soon as I began taking it that it
was affecting me differently from
anything I had used before, and so
I kept on taking it. I kept this up
for six months, and steadily gained
strength and health, and when I
had used fifteen bottles I consid

Ointment, to allay Itching, Irritation
and inflammation, and soothe and heal,"
and mild doses of Cuticnra Resolvent, to
cool the blood in the severer cases, are

relief and permanent cure of skin tor
tured infants and children, and the com
fort of worn-out parents.
