1900 years ago, and
that he was cruci
fied by the Roman
soldiers at the in
stigation of the
are historical facts
which are incon
testable. But there
appears to be a
good dfeal of confu
sion and endless
discussion growing out of that confusion
as to tvo&t Jesus' mission really was,
and is. Some will try to maintain that
it was to show men how to live, other
sorae will argue that He came to do
"good; that He was a reformer and came
to establish new social and religious
conditions; and still others will seek
to show that Hla mission was peculiarly
Jewish, and ended when He was re
jected and killed by the nation whose
Messiah and King He had come to be.
And this confusion arises from unduly
'emphasizing the side of Jesus' life which
seems to sustain the views held, Just as
the inspiration and purpose of the art
ist might be missed in studying his
painting, if one feature or another were
allowed to occupy the vision. But that
Jesus came to be something else than a
pattern after which men could shape
their lives, or a reformer to right hu
man wrongs, or a benefactor and phil
anthropist, whose effort Was to heal the
Eick, raise the rtead, make the blind see
and s-pread happiness and sunshine
wherever He went, is unmistakably evi
dent from the declarations of the Word
of God and of Jesus Himself. Jesus
plainly said: "I came not to call the
righteous, but sinners, to repentance."
"God sent the Son into the world that
the world should be saved through Him,"
and the words of our text, "Christ Je
sus came into the world to save sinners,"
!s the whole Gospel story boiled down,
and expresses the supreme thought of
God in sending Jesus into the world and
the supreme purpose and mission of
Jesus in coming.
THE drowning man does not need
some one to teach him to swim;
his desperate condition requires some
one to save him. And the dying sin
ner does not need someone to show
him how to live in this life, but a Sa
viour to cleanse him from a.11 sin and
make him fit for Heaven. After he is
saved he is ready to learn how to live.
This old world since its foundation
and the placing of man upon it had
been, busy with reformation, and when
Jesus came it needed not a reformer,
but a Saviour; not one who would Im
prove conditions here and there, but
one who could cure the plague spots
and cleanse from all sin. Jesus went
about doing good; wherever He went
His hand was outstretched to help. He
was a benefactor and philanthropist,
but that was not the supreme need of
those about Him, and that was not His
supreme mission. There were ten
lepers cleansed one day when they
met Jesus. As they went rejoicing
and clean back to their homes and
Iriends they knew Jesus as a great
benefactor, but only one of them re
turned to find Jesus the Saviour, and
to learn that a greater work was the
cleansing from the leprosy of sin.
Jesus did not come into the world to
cure the diseased and crippled of the
little land of Palestine, but He came
"with a world-wide mission of salva
tion for the sinner. The miracles of
healing, the kindly ministries, the
teaching and preaching were inci
dental to the greater work of salva
tion. The miracles proved His Divine
origin; the good deeds which He
wrought revealed the depth of love
and sympathy which He felt for suf
fering mankind; His preaching and
teaching opened up God's truth and
made plain God's wonderful plan of
salvation; but it was only when He
went upon the cross and became a
sacrifice for sin; it was only when "He
who knew no sin became sin for us
that we might become the Righteous
ness of God in Him;" it was only
when He died that He might deliver
the human race from death, that He
realized His supreme mission to the
world. "This is a faithful saying and
worthy of all acceptation, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save
LET us get this great fact fairly and
squarely before our hearts and
minds. Let Jesus as Saviour of the world
fill your whole vision, and then you
will be able to appreciate and under
stand Him in His varied relations to
the world, it was not until the disciples
came to have a clear understanding of
Jesus' supreme mission to the world
that they could understand Him, or
realize their part in that great mis
sion. Why was it that when Jesus
talked to them of His coming death on
the cross they rebuked Him and de
clared that it should not be? "Why
was it that Peter was so earnest and
vehement in His opposition to Jesus'
plain statement that He must be
killed and raised the third day that
Jesus had to turn upon him with the
terrible rebuke: "Get thee behind me
Satan; thou art an offense unto Me;
for thou savorest not the things that
be of God, but those that be of men?"
Why was it that upon the mountain
top of transfiguration amidst the glo
ries revealed there the three disciples
wanted to build tabernacles for Jesus,
Moses and Elias that they might find
a permanent dwelling place there?
Why was it that there were jealousies
and disputings among the disciples as
to who should have the chief place in
the kingdom which Jesus came to es
tablish? Why was it that the disciples
went with their linens and spices to
the tomb to embalm their dead Lord?
Why was it that even to the very last
day of Jesus' presence with them after
His resurrection, when they were"

livered to them His last commission:
"Go ye into all the world and preach
the Gospel to every creature," they
persisted - in asking: "Lord, wilt
thou at this time restore again the
kingdom to Israel?" Was It not be
cause they did not understand Jesus
supreme mission to the world, and
their share In bringing to pass the full
realisation bf that mission?
AfH is it that to-day the church of
W testis Christ, and the individual
Christians in those churches, are mak
ing such pitiable progress in the
evangelization of the world? Is it not
because they do not know or have for
gotten what the supreme mission of
Jesus to the world is? Nowadays
Christian activities are so complex and
varied that the primary and funda
mental reasons of Jesus' coming to the
World and the Christians' relation and
responsibility thereto are lost sight bf.
Jesus did not come to establish
churches, and through them to better
the conditions in the world. Jesus
Christ came into the world to save
sinners. And those saved sinners are
to become the channels through
which Jesus may reach the uttermost
parts of the earth and save other sin
ners. That the saved sinners the
Christians should be drawn together
by a common faith and hope is nat
ural for the fellowship 6f the saints
is blessed afid helpful and necessary
and It is according to the plan of God,
for the church of Jesus Christ of
which He is the head is composed fif
the true believers everywhere, no mat
ter of what nation, race, color or posi
tion in life. But the underlying and
foundation principle and right of Chris
tians as organized bodies to exist is
the commission of Jesus to go tell
others that Jesus can save. That the
church of Jesus Christ should be char
itable, and philanthropic, and educa
tional, and helpful In every direction is
most certainly true, but first of all it
must be evangelical. Its first work
must be for the salvation of sinners,
and its first message, and its constant,
reiterated message, must be that
"Christ Jesus came into the world to
ALL the activities of the early apos
tolic church, as disclosed in the
Acts, clustered around the great work of
soul-savihg. There were charitable and
philanthropic enterprises, but they were
all the outgrowth of the preaching Of
the Gospel to sinn?rgi The supreme
mission of JeSU Was ever" kept before
the Christians of the early church. He
had eome to save sinners. As the Holy
Spirit came and took possession of their
surrendered wills and hearts, they saw
that it was not an earthly kingdom
which Jesus came to set up; they real
ized that He had not come to bring
about great social and political changes,
except such as were the outgrowth of
the changed lives bf the saved sinners,
but that it was a wbrld dead in tres
passes and sins which He had come and
bffered His life to redeem Ahd imme
diately they began t pfeaeh this mes
sage. And charities find the varied
forms of Christian activities followed
as a necessary result of their preach
ing. This is the position which the
church must occupy to-day if it wouhi
be what God wants it to be and intended
it should be. The church cannot im
prove upon Jesus' supreme mission to
the world. It may carry on great chari
ties and philanthropic enterprises; it
may organize itself into a splendid in
stitutional church, exerting widespread
influence and winning the approval and
support of the world, but if it fails in
the supreme work of soul saving it has
ceased to feel the vitalizing power of
Jesus' presence, it s failed to realize
its greatest privilege and It has missed
its supreme opportunity for doing good.
HY was Jesus' supreme mission
W to the world that of savlhg the
sinner? Because the greatest need of
man could only be met by the greatest
sacrifice of Heaven. Jesus asks: "What
shall it profit a man if he gain the whole
world and lose his own soul?" Jesus
might have righted' all human, wrongs.
He might have banished sickness from
the earth, He might have ushered in a
reign of peace and plenty, and it would
have made earth a good place to dwell
in, but after the short period of this
life, what of the next? He might have
provided for the physical man, but what
of the eternal welfare of his soul? He
must give His life in order that He
might buy the right to give life to sin
ful, lost man.
His supreme mission was the redeem
ing back to God of a lost and ruined
race. When Jesus came the Jew was
crushed under the cruel yoke of Roman
bondage, and looked for deliverance,
but Jesus looked farther than the Ro
man oppressors, He looked deeper than
the ills of the flesh. He saw beneath
all the externalities of life the dead soul.
The Jews wanted a king and deliverer;
they needed a Saviour. The world
wants amelioration from its woes and
distresses; it needs first and foremost
a Saviour. Go with me to the morgue.
There lie the rows upon rows of
ghastly dead. What do those cold,
stiff bodies need most, the finest of
clothing, jewels to deck finger, throat
and brow, mansions-m shelf er, friends
to cherish and love and festive boards
around which to gather? Are those
what they need? The very thought of
these things in connection with those
lying there stiff and cold in death is
abhorrent. They need life! Life!!
Life!!! When Jesus came to the
world's morgue of souls dead in tres
passes and sins, could He think of any
thing but their supreme need? They
did not need what the world could give
so much as they needed life! Life!!
Life!!! Do you know, I believe some
of the saddest moments of Jesus' life
were when the suffering and needy re
ceived the temporal blessings of heal
ing and food from His hands without
any awakening in the soul of desire
for the supplying of the greater need
which He came to fill. He came to give
Life! Could He be satisfied; when they
twerg willing to take less? Oh, the
greatest need of the world is not more
charity, greater philanthropy, higher
civilization, broader education, but it
is Life! Jesus' supreme mission waa
to give life to dead souls, to save sin
ners! AND if Jesus had but one Upreni4
mission, that Of saving sinner,
and if the supreme message bf th&
ages is: "Believe on the Lord Jesus
Christ and thou shalt be saved," how
had it ought to affect the Christian?
The Christian has a right to have but
one passion, and that i3 a passion for
soul3. His message must be the one
which Jesus has sent him lo deliver.
We do not hear Taul, the greatest
soul-winflef bf all times, preaching
ahythidg but Gfirist Jesus add Hini
Cfucified. He" might have preached
other and helpful things, but he de
clares: "I determined not to know
anything among you save Jesus Christ
and Him crucified." He might have
gloried in other things, but his prayer
was: "God forbid that I should glory,
save In the cross of our Lord Jesus
Christ." And the Christian has no
right or excuse for preaching or teach"
ing anything else than that "Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sin
ners' This fact must be the central
and supreme motive of the life. Let
all else be subordinate tb this one
great truth bf Heaven and hope bf
TO DO so simplifies all the complex
ities of the secular and religious
life. It is so easy for the mariner to

his eyes from the Christ Vhd has"

Commendable Christian activities are
allowed to obscure the main issue,
and soul saving is relegated tb the re
vival period or the more convenient
season. But if the supreme mission of
Jestis is kJpt ever in mind, and the
supreme calling of the Christian is
realized, all Christian activities natu
rally and beautifully fall into their
rightful place, and the saving power of
Jesus is gloriously manifest. To
recognize the supreme mission of

reformer is met on every hand with
difficulties and discouragements. When
success is won in one direction fresh
difficulties arise. in another. The dis

the large cities and in sections of tha
country and the world are alleviated,
but not eliminated or cured. The more

I T WAS only a few years ngb that a
I worker in the slums of New York
went insane because of the needs of
the unfortunates and her own feeble
ness to correct the existing evils. But
it is not so with the Christian who
keeps in mind the supreme mission of
Jesus into the world. He knows he
has net the crushing burdens of hi
man ills tb carry. He sees the need
and distress. It makes his heart bleed,
but it does not discourage, for he
knows the saddest condition of all is
the soul in darkness. His supreme
duty is hot id make this life mor
bearable, but to bring the dead soul td
a saVing knowledge in Jesus Christ,
lie must be charitable, he must be
philanthropic, he must be a minister
ing angel at all times, but all must be
handmaidens to serve the supreme end
that of saving the soul. And with all
Heaven rejoicing over one sinner who
has repented, and with the song of
joy of the new-found hope swelling
in the heart Of the saved soul, how can
there be discouragement? The soul
saving Christians are the happiest and
most hopeful. No "pessimists are within
their ranks. All are bright with the
optimism bf IteaVen. They lift up the

Him, from every grade and waik of
THIS is a faithful saying, then,
"and worthy of all acceptation,
that Christ Jesus came into the world
tb saVe sinners." Mr. Spurgeon. in
commenting on this verse, said: "This
coming of Christ to save sinners, as
sinners, Paul regards as a truth so well
known in the Christian church that
it had come to be a saying, 'familiar
in their mouths as household words.'
It had become a sort of proverb with
Christians that Christ Jesus came to
save sinners, and Paul says that it
might justly be received a a proverb
among all nations, for it was worthy
of universal acceptance from the
weight of its meaning, the importance
of its subject, and the Divine author
ity with which it was sealed. More
over, that Jesus Christ came into the
world to save sinners is so true that
it is not merely a saying, but a faith
ful saying, worthy of all confidence,
being as sure as the truth of God Him
self. Pass it around, ye Christians; re
peat it among yourselves without the
slightest hesitancy or question; let it
be a proverb among you. a fact tin
doubted, a truth unquestionable. For
the salvation of sinners Jesus came
into the world. He contemplated the
saving of no other sort of persons but
those who are sinful."
God's Ordering or .Man' Willfulness
Often what we call God's ordering is
really man's self-willed performance.
We are responsible for a great many
of the obstacles and hindrances that
meet us in the path of duty. So we
are for many of the discomiorts that
beset our path, if a man chooses a
bad business, or makes a culpable er
ror, in the hope of amassing weaith,
he must not say that all the difficul
ties he encounters there are to be ac
cepted as of God's ordering. So of the
discomforts of an impatient, of a fret

might have peace from God, but h
chooses worry and unrest as his por

emy Taylor, "are busy in the world
gathering together a handful of thorns
to sit upon!" There are trials in our
path which God summons us to meet.
We need His help to surmount those,
and He is ready to give it. But let ua

PROFIT IN CAPONIZlNG.
A Simple Operation and Some Reason
Why It Pay the Farmer to
The chief reason for caponizing cock
erels is to get a larger profit out of them.
Gbbd capbns generally sell for a higher
price per pound than other poultry.
They alsd weigh more, add are marketed
at a time when the flock is bringing lit
tie return. A flock of capons are quiet,
do not crow and are easily taken care of.
The best breeds to caponize are the
medium-sized varieties, such as Ply
mouth Rocks, Wyandots, Rhode Island
Reds, etc. The Asiatics do not give as
satisfactory results unless kept until
they reach maturity, when they are so
large as to be beyond the reach of private
families. It does not pay to caponize
smaller breeds, for they do not produce
dressed fowls of the highest quality. Ca
pons are usually marketed at from
six to 12 months of age, and the market
for them opens soon alter the holidays.
The best time to caponize is when the
cockerels are three to four months old.
At this age the operation can be per
formed with less danger than when the
birds are older and larger. A bright,
sunny day must be chosen for the op
eration and the birds must have been
fasted for at least 24 hours previous. A
special set of instruments are neces
sary fbr this purpbse, and the wbrk re
quires skill and care. One may easily
acquire the skill by practicing on a few
dead birds. Orange Judd Farmer.

"I suffered for five years with
Uterine irregularities, which brottght
on hys-tefia and mndo me a physical
wreck. I tried doctor from the dif
ferent schools of medicine, but with
out any perceptible change in my
condition. In my despair I called on
an old nurse, who advised me to try
rertina, and promised god resultsif
I would persist and take itrefrularlv-.
1 thought this was the least I could
do and procured a bottle. 1 knew as
soon as I began taking it that it waj
affecting me differently from any
thing I had used before, andso I kep
on taking it. I kept this up for six
mouths, andsteadily gained strength
and health, and when I bad used
fifteen bottles I considered mysel
entirely cured. I am a grateful,
