of Its Lessons
What Nature May Teach tba Christian of Faith and Patience

Text: "Let us not be weary In well
doing: for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not." Gal. 6:9.
LORY of Comple
tion. The crown
ing glory of the
field of waving
grain is the golden
full-ripe ears which
are ready for the
harvest. The or
chard is never
more glorious than
when the luscious
fruit hangs in yel
low and crimson
splendor from the
bending boughs of the faithful and
bountiful trees. The sprouting grain is
fresh and beautiful in its eager hope of
fruitage; the dainty blossoms as they un
fold upon the trees whisper hopefully
of the days of harvest to come, but neith
er the growing wheat field nor the fra
grant orchard can claim that glory which
alone is the reward of ripeness and ma
turity. Nature is eager in her spring
time of -beginnings, she is patient and
persistent in the summer-time of testing
and growth, but she is magnificent and
bountiful and satisfying in the glory of
her harvest-time, for the harvest is re
alization, it is completion.
The artist does not find glory and for
tune in the rough sketch, but in the com
pleted and perfect work of art of which
the rough sketch was the beginning. The
Slnventor does not win the praise and ap
proval of the world while yet his ideas
of some great machine are crude and un
developed, but when the completed ma
'chlne performs the work for which it
was constructed glory crowns the efforts
of the maker. It is the returning, vic
torious army, and not untried troops,
which enjoys the enduring glory of his
tory's page. The conquest completed, the
task finished, the device perfected, the
enterprise concluded, are possessed of a
glory which they could not know in
their immature, Imperfect state. My
little daughter has just entered school.
It was a pretty sight to see her start off
proudly and enthusiastically, eager to
begin her climb up the ladder of knowl
edge, but the glory of that beginning
must be found in the graduation, ten or
twelve years in the future, when she
shall have finished the grade and high
school work. If she would share in the
honor and distinction of the graduation,
she must endure the long years of plod
ding study. What joy, what satisfac
tion, what glory attaches to the thing
completed ! The harvest field, the ripen
ing fruit of the orchard are eloquent in
expression of this thought. The glory
IN the service for Christ, this Is espe
cially true. "They that turn many
to righteousness shall shine as the stars
forever and ever." There is the crown
of life promised to the Christian who
endures the fiery trial of temptation.
There is the crown of righteousness
which is promised to those Christians
who are watching faithfully until their
Lord comes. There is the crown of
glory which' fadeth not away promised
to the faithful under shepherds when
the Chief Shepherd shall appear. What
a time that will be! I want to attend
that magnificent coronation ceremony.
When the faithful who have patiently
turned many to righteousness shall
burst forth in glory resplendent as the
stars forever and ever and when they
shall be crowned. What a picture to
dazzle the Christian! Who is there
that does not long to stand some day
among the honored and glorified throng?
The glory of the completion of the Chris
tian course. Paul exclaims: "I have
finished my course. Henceforth there
is laid up for me a crown of righteous
ness." Jesus on the cross cried with
His dying breath: "It is finished." And
on the other side of that cross were the
resurrection triumph and the ascension
glory. When the course is run, when
the mission is finished, when the duty
Is done, then comes the time of glory
and rejoicing. The certainty of this
day is the star of promise for the Chris
tian. BUT there is a day of realization near
er than the great final harvest time.
There is the reaping here, as well as
over there. The blessed privilege
comes of seeing souls brought to Christ
by personal effort. The word spoken,
the deed of kindness performed, the
duty discharged, bring forth their fruit
age which God often permits us to be
hold here in this life. And how the
glory of such fruitage rests as a halo
upon the one who has not been weary in
well doing, but who has persisted until
the hardened and obstinate and sin-loving
sinner has been won for Christ, has
persisted in the hard way of duty until
victory and success have been won. The
Christian never shines more resplend
ently or glorifies his Lord more fully
than when the harvest time has come,
with Its reaping of precious souls. But
the weary days of waiting, and water
ing, and tending, have preceded. The
hot sun of trial and persecution has beat
down, the storm of criticism and oppo
sition has raged about. It has been a
long and hard journey between the time
of sowing and the day of reaping. But
God's promises are sure and His words:
"In due season we shall reap, if we
faint not," have encouraged to stead
fastness. And at last the reaping has
come. It Is a delightful place to be,
but it has cost something to get there.
And there is still another kind of reap
ing, that which has to do with the per
sonal and inner life. The fruits of the
Spirit are love, Joy, peace, longsuffer
Ing, gentleness, goodness, faith, meek
ness, temperance. When we find these
shining out in a Christian's life how
beautiful and attractive and influential
Is that life! How prone the Christian
who lives on a lower plane is to sigh
and long that he, too. might be as beau
tiful and Christlike in character. The
glory of such a character attracts him,
and he would like to be as Christlike,
but he forgets that there has been a
putting off the old man with its affec
tions and lusts, in order that the fruits
of the spirit might grow. How often
the Christian makes the start to develop ,

these attributes in his life, but he be
comes weary in the well doing, and
fails to come to the time of reaping the
fruits of the Spirit.
T7 NTHUSIASM of Beginnings. It Is
J- easy to make the start. Enthus
lasm marks the beginning. It is com
paratively an easy undertaking to
arouse enthusiasm; it is not hard to
take the outer defenses of the enemy
by the sudden assault, but it is quite an
other matter to hold the forces together
and maintain the slow siege until the
stronghold is captured and victory's
banner is unfurled. Moses quickly
aroused the enthusiasm of the children
of Israel over the proposed colonization
of the promised land, but it was the
trying task of years to lead them
through the wilderness and bring them
to the plains of Moab, opposite to Jeri
cho, the place of entering. Joshua had
no difficulty in rallying all the people
to the daily march around Jericho, but
it was a constant struggle after the peo
ple were fairly settled in the land to
stir them to the further conquest of
the heathen nations still remaining.
When the Midlanites threatened the
land and the oppressed people found a
leader in Gideon, their enthusiasm
brought together an army of 32,000
men, but only 300 were left when the
battle cry of "The sword of the Lord
and of Gideon" was raised. Many enter
the race, but few finish the course. It Is
easy to begin, but it tests muscles, and
lungs, and will power to cover the speed
way, and score at the end. Enthusiasm
thrills the many, and brings them to
gether at the beginning of a movement
or enterprise, but endurance measures
the quality of that enthusiasm, and de
termines the kind and degree of fruit
age. Enthusiasm is the spark which
explodes the gunpowder, but endurance
is the force which determines whether
the cannon ball will hit the mark or fall
ineffectively and harmlessly short of
the point aimed for. Enthusiasm
sparks and glows, but unless endurance
fans and feeds the fire, it soon becomes
a cold, dead ember, without influence
WELL Doing. Endurance in well
doing. Well doing implies a right
start and a steadfast course. Well do
ing is progressive. The farmer sows
his field to-day, that is well doing. It
is the right start. But to-morrow it is
not the seeder again which he should
run through the field, but the cultivator.
The seed has been sown, now must fol
low the cultivation, the watching, the
protecting, the patient waiting. The
farmer cannot sow good seed In his field
to-day, let the weeds grow there to
morrow and the next day reap the
golden grain. And yet that Is exactly
what many a Christian is trying to do.
Good seed is sown in the life to-day, but
to-morrow the weeds of carelessness, of
Indifference, of sinful indulgence are al
lowed to grow, and in the time when
harvest should be filled with the iov of
reaping there is sad disappointment, and
failure. Instead of wheat there is a
harvest of tares. This is not well doine.
Well doing does not find its full ex
pression in beginnings. Each day well
doing brings its new responsibilities and
duties. You may not settle back and
take your ease to-day, because yesterday
the well done was written over the day.
Some people try to crowd all their well
doing in on Sunday, and expect the other
days of the week are to go in the strength
of that one day of service. Some Chris
tians are zealous in the well doing In
church and prayer meeting, and Sunday
school, but utterly forget obligation in
well doing in the home and In business
and on the street. Let us not be weary
In well doing, for weariness marks the
departure from right to wrong paths.
"Yes! He knows the way is dreary.
Knows the weakness of our frame.
Knows the hand and heart are weary;
He, 'in all points,' felt the same.
He is near to help and bless;
Be not weary, onward press.
"Look to Him, "Who once was willing'
All His glory to resigrn.
That, for thee the law fulfilling,
All His merit might be thine.
Strive to follow day by day
Where His footsteps mark the way.
Look to Him. the Lord of Glory,
Tasting death to win thy life;
Gazing on 'that wondrous story,'
Canst thou falter in the strife?
Is it not new life to know j
That tne Lord hath loved thee so?
"Look to Him Who ever liveth.
Interceding for His own:
Seek, yea, claim the grace He giveth
Freely from His priestly throne.
Will He not thy strength renew'
With His Spirit s quickening dew?
"Look to Him and faith shall brighten,
Hope shall soar, and love shall burn;
Teace once more thy heart shall lighten;
Rise! He calleth thee, return!
Be not weary on thy way,
Jesus is thy strtngth and stay."
'"pHE Due Season of Reaping. It is
1 the fullness of God's time. Did you
ever realize what this meant? Over and
over again is this expression used in
God's Word as referring to the operation
of the Divine will and purpose. Man
blunders, but God never. Man spoils by
too early or too late reaping, but God
always thrusts in the sickle at the right
time. The due season of reaping is re
alized when there is patint waiting upon
God. In the fullness of time God sent
His Son into the world. In the fullness
of time Christ was offered upon the cross
as a sacrifice for sin. In the fullness of
time He rose from the grave and ascend
ed into Heaven; and in the fullness of
time the Holy Spirit descended and filled
the waiting disciples. God always acts
with precision. This ought to cheer and
encourage the heart of the Christian
whose well doing is doing the will of
God. No anxiety and worry because
the day of reaping does not come.
"In due season we shall reap," God
says, and we can afford to wait. The
farmer does not set the day of harvest
in the springtime after he has planted :
his crop. He tends and cultivates the
fleld and waits. Nature may bring an
early harvest, or she may delay the ma
turing of the grain so that the day of
reaping is a matter of great uncertainty,
but all the farmer can do is wait until
the right time has come, then the sound
of the reaper and the thrasher is heard.
God's promise of reaping in due season
if we faint not ought to keep the Chris
tian steadfast and hopeful through all
the trying, dark days of waiting.
NOT only is the harvest timely, but it
is proportionate. Much sowing and
faithful cultivation will produce a larger
crop than scant sowing and careless
cultivation. "He that soweth sparing
ly shall reap also sparingly," Is the
declaration of God's word. This Is true
In the realm of nature, and why should
it be thought strange in the spiritual
realm. Joash, king of Israel, shooting
the arrow at the bidding of the prophet,
Elisha, and his smiting of the ground
three times and then staying his hand
when he should have smitten five or
six times, gives us a picture of the Chris
tian who is half-hearted in his work of
sowing. And because the sowing Is
half-hearted and scant, the reaping is
In like ratrp. Be not weary in well
doing at the time of sowing of the seed
nor afterwards In cultivating the crop,
for weariness will lessen the yield. A
blighted field is a sad sight. I remem
ber during a period of drought passing
through sections where the shriveled,
parched and stunted corn gave no hope
for the harvest time. The fierce heat
had baked the ground and shrunk up
the corn. And the Christian's fields are
scarred and disfigured by the fierce heat
of temptation and trial. Well doing
would keep the blasting rays away from
the growing crops, but having become
weak and faint-hearted, temptation and
trial win easy conquests. Be not weary
in the well doing which guards the field
after it is planted, which waters and
cultivates the growing crop, which waits
patiently until the due season of reap
ing, for the reaping is proportionate not
only to the sowing, but to the faithful
ness and patience of the cultivation.
'THE ripened grain and fruits are a
x sum in addition, into mat Kernel
of wheat and into that yellow peach and
rosy apple have been pressed the sun
shine and cloud, the dew and the rain,
the fresh air above and the soft nour
ishing earth beneath. Not a day can
be spared out of its existence. Each
day since the apple blossom had opened
to the rays of the warming sun it has
been busy developing and growing.
Nourished by the parent stem, wet by
the dew and kissed by the sun to-day,
it has needed the next day and the next
for further development and growth
And thus it has gone on and on. The
half-grown apple has swelled to the pro
portions of maturity, the green dress
has mellowed to a yellow hue tinged
with crimson. Its hard heart has soft
ened to a state of edibility, and all be
cause the necessary days have counted
off to the due season of reaping. And
so it is with the Christian. Each day,
each experience, must add something to
his life and character that will contrib
ute to the day of reaping. All the days
are needed. The sunshine of to-day, the
rain and storm of to-morrow, the cold
and the heat.
AND the ripened grain and fruits are
a lesson in multiplication. Harvest
time brings with it the possibilities of
future harvest days. The kernel of
wheat under proper conditions may
multiply itself manyfold. The grain as
It crowds the bin after harvest rustles
in Its impatience to be out again and
performing a newer and larger mission.
The Christian's time of harvest is his
commission to larger and better effort.
The time of reaping is not the time of
cessation of labor. It marks the call to
more sowing, more patient cultivation
and more certain reaping. The harvest
gathered "is warrant for the preparation
for the harvest yet to be. "Let us not
be weary in well doing: for in due sea
son we shall reap, if we faint not." "He
that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing
precious seed, shall doubtless come
again with rejoicing, bringing his
sheaves with him."
JUDGING BY APPEARANCES.
Christian Forbearance Should Be Ej
ercioed In Forming- Estimates
of Others' Actions.
We have almost daily examples of the
mistake of judging by appearances. An
act seems to bear but one construction,
and that against the character of a cer
tain person. Or a report comes to us
that seems to be so well authenticated
and Is told with so much attention to
details that mistake seems to be out of
the question. And yet, says the North
western Christian Advocate, when all
the facts are in, a single circumstance
that was overlooked changes the whole
complexion of the actor of the story.
At one of the Waterloo banquets th
duke of Wellington, the hero of the
famous battle, handed around for the
examination of the guests a presenta
tion snuff box set with diamonds. All
at once it disappeared. Some one sug
gested that everyone present turn his
pockets inside out for careful inspec
tion. All the guests agreed to this but
one old officer, who refused, and when
the point was Insisted upon left the
room. Of course suspicion fell upon
him and he was given a very decided
cold shoulder. The next year the duke
at the banquet happened to put his hand
into the pocket of hi3 coat and there
found the snuff box. He went at once
to the old officer and apologized. He
found him living in a wretched garret.
Asked why he had not consented to have
his pockets examined when the box was
missed jihe officer replied: "I was carry
ing home some pieces of meat for my
family, who were then almost dying of
starvation, and I didn't want to have
anyone know how poor we were."
When the great duke heard the story he
cried like a child and did all in his power
to atone for the wrong that had been
done, but of course he could not entirely,
but he learned well the lesson not to
judge by the outward appearance.
Op I am Smoking In Paris.
For some time past doctors in
France have been warning the public
against the dangers of the latest craze
opium smoking. The habit has been
introduced by officers and others home
from Indo-China, and gradually ex
tended to society at Marseilles and
Toulon. After being adopted in other
seaports, the mania has now reached
Paris, where it Is reported to have

BEAUTIFUL PEON GIRLS.
Shapelr Forma astd Oracefolnsa of
the Mexican Descendant
of the A tecs.
The real beauty of the Mexican peo
ple is found in the young women
among the more Intelligent peons.
They have Inherited the fine teeth, the
lithe forms, the shapely necks and,
above all, the easy carriage of theif
Aztec ancestors. Their hair is not tor
tured by the hot curling irons, their
gait has not been made artificial by
Parisian shoes. Tr.eir waists have
never been pinched by corsets and they
have found grace and vigorous health
out in the glorious sunshine of Mex
ico. Here and there a baiefoot, ragged
peon girl may be seen whose beauty
would be remarked upon in almost any
American assemblage, r.ys a writer In
the Chicago Chronicle.
Unfortunately they blossom early.
At 20 the apricot pink o' their cheeks
becomes dull brown, their lith figures
become fat and pudgy and at SO they
are bent and lined.
The peon families are always inor
dinately large. Seldom does a peon
girl pass her fifteenth year without her
marriage, and there are mwy In
stances of 13-ye;.r-old mothers In the
land. A host of Mexican women are
grandmothers at 32 and great-grandmothers
at 50. The high-class senor
itas marry from 17 to 22.
Mexican senoras look with horror
on the freedom of American women.
The life of a senorita is thoroughly un
like that of her American sister. When
she is little she is carried in the arms
of a black-shawled nurse, good na
tured and not overclean. She wears
wonderful caps of lace and colored
silks and a false slip, long and flowing,
of the same material over her baby
clothes. When she is a little older she
is laced into long, stiff stays and sent
to the convent, and at early night she
walks with her duenna in the plaza
and begins to think about a novio, or
The novio is thenceforth the one aim
and interest of her life. She first
knows that he is likely to become such
because he has stared her out of coun
tenance wehnever she has come upon
him in the streets and has turned
squarely about on the sidewalk and
gazed after her, which is good man
ners and a mark of proper apprecia
tion of her charms. Then he is always
to be found in the plaza when she goes
driving. She is never alone. A duenna
has her and her sisters always in view
until her marriage, when she becomes
a senora. Dressed all in black like
pretty penitents, the senoritas of each
family hurry through the streets, a
duenna in close attendance, to a mass
so early that it seems like night. Their
black shawls, of delicate, crapelike
texture, shade their faces. They are
scarcely seen on the streets again until
the fashionable cavalcade on the Paseo
begins to sweep its brilliant length
around and around the drive. The
garments are gay now, brilliantly col
ored, Parisian In design.
There is an elderly man in the city
who, like many others, is so good
natured that it requires considerable
effort to bring him to the point of do
ing anything for his own house. There
are a number of things that he always
has on the programme to do, but never
quite gets to the point of doing. The
family decided this summer that sev
eral of the window screens had so
many holes in them that they must be
replaced, but the weeks have gone by,
and the old screens still do service.
The mistress of the house was heard
remonstrating with her husband one
day this week.
"John," she said, "what's the us
of those screens, any way? There
might just as well be none at all,
there are so many holes in thera."
"No," said John, plausibly, "these
screens are all right. There are so
many holes that it confuses the flies.
I've seen flies that couldn't tell
whether they were in or out, they be
came bo confused with that screen."
