WHAT ROME THINKS

AN AMEEIOAN EEMEDY.

Meet His Kxpectatlons.
1 Dr. Lapponi, the famous physician to
the Vatican, whose name has recently
come so greatly to the front on account
of his unremitting attention to Hia
Holiness, the late Pope Leo XIII, and
the high esteem and confidence with
which he is regarded by the present
Pope, His Holiness Pius X, is a man of
commanding gemns. lie is more than
a uaore man of science ; he is a man of
original and independent mind. Un-
trammeled by the "etiquette" of the
medical profession and having used Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People in
his practice with good results, he freely
avows the facts and endorses the value
of this remedy with au authority which
no one will venture to question.
Dr. Lapponi Letter.
"I certify that I have used Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills in four cases
of the simple anaemia of develop
ment. After a few weeks of treat
ment, the result came fully up to my
expectations. For that reason I .
shall not fail in the future to extend
the use of this laudable preparation
not only in the treatment of other
forms of the category of anaemia or
chlorosis, but also iu cases of neuras
thenia aud the like."
(Signed) Giuseppe Lappoxi,
Via dei Gracchi 332, Rome.
The "simple anaemia of development,
referred to by 2D. Lapponi, is of course,
that tired, languid condition of young
girls, whose development to womanhood
is tardy and whose health, at that period,
is bo often imperiled. His opinion of
the value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People at that time is of the
highest- scientific authority, and it con
firms the many published cases in which
anaemia and other diseases of the blood,
ns well as nervous diseases such as ner
vous prostration, neuralgia, St. Vitus'
dance, paralysis and locomotor ataxia
have been cured by these pills. They
are commended to the public for their
efficiency in making new blood and
strengthening weak nerves. Aftei
6uch an endorsement they will be ac
cepted by the medical and scientific
world at their full value.

Text: "With the heart man believeth
unto nght?ousm-N and with the mouth
conff fusion ia made unto salvation." Rom.
AUL has linked here
in most vital rela
tionship the heart
and the mouth as
through which the
soul realizes that
which we call sal
vation. The ques
tion: "What must
I do to be saved?"
has its answer in
the brief, intense
appeal of Paul as he
replies to that re
pentant jailer at midnight: "Believe
on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt
be saved." And here in our text Paul
as it were more clearly defines what is
involved in that act of believing. He is
ci vidiDg that act of saving faith up into
its element1;, and speaks of one as be
lief unto righteousness and the other
as confession unto salvation. The one
Is the inner recognition of Christ as
Saviour, the other is the outward ex
nression of that faith. We have here
a hint of James doctrine of works a
emphasized in his epistle. Between
Paul and James there was, it used to be
thought, an irreconcilable difference of
opinion as to the process of salvation
It would seem that Paul emphasized
salvation by simple faith and Jame
salvation by works. So strongly did
T.nrher contend aeainst this idea of
works as a part of the process of salva
tion that he refused to recognize the
epistle of James as Inspired of God and
authoritative. It is easy to understand
this nreiudire. for Luther lived In a
time when the Romish church had lost
steht of faith, and when the works of
pentnre and confession and church
forms and ceremonies and cold formali
ties constituted the religious life of the
people. And so Luther swung to the
ether extreme, and emphasized faith
without works. And yet between the
doctrine of Paul and James there is the
most perfect union and harmony. Each
views the matter of salvation from a
different standpoint. One sees the ab
solute need of faith as expressive of
utter dependence upon the mercy and
righteousness of God for deliverance
from sin and its consequences. The
other sees the absolute need of works
as the expression of that faith, for as
James puts it, faih without works Is
dead, and then he goes on to show how
all the heroes of faith to whom Paul re
fers to enforce his arguments in favor
cf faith without works, showed their
faith by their works.

I trn nnlnrc ic familiar f all and
exactly illustrates this point. The dis-
pute as to its color appeared ridiculous
and unnecessary when it became known
that both disputants were right, for one
side of the card was blue and the other
was red. One had seen one side and
the other had teen the reverse side. It
was the same card, but looked at from
different viewpoints it appeared differ-
?nt. So is it with the doctrine of salva
tion bv faith and salvation by works.
They are the two sides to the one great
fact of salvation through Christ Jesus.
Thev are inseparably linked. They are
the Gospel twins. The famous Siamese
twins which were exhibited through
the country years ago were not more
clotelv joined together than are these
two conditions of salvation. The mat
ter. I believe, was seriously discussed at
one time by scientific men. of separating
the Siamese twins by surgical operation.
but it was finally decided that it would
prove ratal to Dotn the cniidren. Ana
any effort to separate the Gospel twins
must prove disastrous. The faith of the
heart must go hand in hand with the
confession of the mouth. The two pro
vide the evidence which every soul
needs to test the reality of Salvation.
The double proposition which Paul lays
down in our text offers a subject for
very serious consideration for every one
who claims to have a saving faith in
Jesus Christ. The question arises at
once: Are there Christians so-called
with but half an experience? What is
really involved in the term Salvation?
What is faith of the heart? and what is
confession of the mouth?
LET us fry to give the soul answer
to these stirrinir and important
queries. And first of all is it possible
ror one to have a partial, an incomplete
Christian experience? Nicodemus.
the member of the Sanhedrin, who came
to Jesus by night and to whom Jesus
;poke some of the sweetest and pro-
foundest truths recorded in any of the
Gospels, is a striking example of this.
From the moment of that midnight con
ference. Nicodemus believed Jesus was
the Christ the Son of God. But he locked
the secret in his heart. He never
breathed it to colleague or friend. And
so through the rest of Jesus eventful
ministry he continued with half an ex
perience. And not until the tragedy of
Calvary was enacted and Jesus' life
blood had been shed for the sins of the
world, did he come out in open confes
sion of his faith and enjoy the full ex
perience of Salvation. As he went to
Pilate and begged the body of Jesus, as
he wrapped it in the grave cloths that
the rich Joseph provided, as he fol
lowed the bruised and tortured and life
less body to the tomb, he made the con
fession that all along had been needful.
And how many there are who. believing
that Jesus is the Christ and secretly are
ICllowius iiiui, aif un ci tut-i-ts ivvvn
of that joy rf the consciousness of Sal
vation which coms from the open con
fession of the inward conviction. Thfl
so-called secret Christian cannot know
or experience the meaning of Salvation.
There may be recognition of all the
claims of Jesus, there may be effort at
secret allegiance and discipleship, but
.he soul is robbed of half the joy anu
blessing which come from vital union
SALVATION, then, involves more
than belief of the heart The latter
must be supplemented by the confession
of the mouth. To. connect up the dyna-
mo ,with the live wire from the power
' house Is not all that is necessary. And
to connect up the soul with Christ by the
wire of faith is not all that is needfuL
The motor stands there dead and inert.
There is no evidence of the power and
life which it may be claimed lies within
the wire and that dynamo. All the con
nections are made perfectly, and the
great generators back at the power
house are humming out their living,
vital current, but there is no evidence
outwardly of the inner conditions.
Something more is needful. But turn
the switch and let the current pass
through the dynamo and at once we see
the outward evidence of the inward
presence. So with the one who believe3
in Christ The wire of faith has con
nected the soul with its Lord and
Saviour, but the evidence of that union
is only seen, yea and felt, as the life of
the Christ flows through the disciple in
confession. As well might the dynamo
be connected up with the water plug at
Salvation if not a theory which can be

trine to be locked within the secret

tell yot what Jesus said regarding such
as yo',': "Whosoever therefore shall
confef Ti Me before men, him will I con
fess a" so before My Father which is in
Heavfn. but whosoever shall deny Me

My F-.ther which is in Heaven." Can
you Iti the face of this plain
and riositivf? declaration profess to
believe that all that Is necessary for
you is to have an inward conviction that
Jesus is the Christ the Son of God and
the Saviour of the world? Can you feel
satisfied with your position before God?
Can you feel safe? If you really have
Christ within, you must give expression
to that inward possession. Christ can
not be hid. It was so declared of Him
when He was upon earth, and it is still
true. The declarations of Jesus that.
"Out of the abundance of the heart, the
mouth spe?.keth." that whatsoever was

ND what is faith of the heart? What
faith of the heart is something more than
conscious recognition of the claims of
Jesus. The confession of the mouth is
something more than vain and empty
words spoken in the name of the Lord.
The devils believe and tremble. Scrip
ture declares, and Jesuf said: "Not
everyone that saith unto Me, Iord, Lord,
shall enter into the Kingdom cf Heaven.
Many will say to Me in that day (the day
when all shall come in the presence of
God to b judged) Lord. Lord, have
we not prophesied in Thy name?" But
Jesus will say unto them: "I never
knew you; depart from Me. ye that work
iniquity.' Yes. surely faith of tli9
heart means more than idle, inactive.
I unresponsive belief in Jesus Christ; and
confession of the mouth means far more
than just taking the name of Jesus upon
the lips. Saving faith is a dynamic force
which changes the life, and tunes the
lips to respond to the Divine harmony
of the soul. Raving faith involves at
least three things: Consciousness of
the guilty and lost condition of the soui;
acceptance of the Christ as the complete
and only Saviour from all tin. and obe
dience to the will and commands of the
acepted Christ. What profit is it to
my soul if I recognize Jesus as the
Saviour of the world, if there is no:
within my heart a deep sense of my per
sonal need of His cleansing and saving
power? I must be a convicted sinn
before I can be a saved soul. But sav
ing faith involves more than conviction
of sin and recognition of Christ as a
Saviour. Christ cannot be my Saviour
until by faith I accept Him as such.
The acceptance of Christ as personal
Saviour must be as positive and formal
as must be the acceptance of a gift from
a friend before the gift is really mine.
And obedience must follow acceptance.
HA.T follows according to the Di-
e prescription is confession.
This is the expression and confirmation
of that which has taken place within.
It has been said that a thought is not
real ?nd tangible until it has been ex
pressed in spoken or written word. The
confession of Christ by word of mouth
clarifies the vision of faith, it clinthrs
tne convictions, u connrms tne .juits
and aspirations of the soul. The con
fession is the inseparable and the indis
pensable twin of the faith of the heart.
Many a soul has struggled on in desper
ate effort to live the secret Christian lif.
No peace or joy has come to the soul.
How could it when the Christ Who had
dared to face all the world for the lost
sinner is being denied and dishonored
by silent llr3. Either cf ivo things al
ways happens to such a believer. Either
he at last brin gs the joyless and troubled
religious experience to a close by an

Brewery Man Wore the White Ribbon
Because He Was Tempted
Mrs. Robert J. Burdette tells a story about
the white ribbon which is the sign of total
abstinence. "There are some persons," said
Mrs. Burdette, according to the Chicago
Daily News, "who don't wear the white rio
bon with sincerity. They wear it, pernaps,
about as hypocritically as it was worn by

ploye, after years of dissipation, appeared
one cay at tne brewery with the wnite rib
bon on his breast.
"Nothing was said to hiin and he wore the
ribbon for some months. Then one day the
nead of the firm, happening to notice the
man's badge, approached him. 'Why,
Frank,' he said, "it is strange to see you,
brewer, wearing the white ribbon.' 'It does
look strange, sir,' the man admitted.
" 'Well,' said the brewer 'why do you do
it?' 'It is like this,' said the workman. 'I
wear the ribbon because it makes men like
to tempt me, and when I'm tempted I suc
cumb, 6ir.' "

French will ever miss it." Tit-Bita.
