picture of man dwelling apart from God
He is occupied with his own affairs and
doings, with the world and the things cf
the world. The house of his own desires
shelters him, and his friends Ambition
and Wealth, and Pleasure, and Business
and Society, and hosts of other children
of the world find cordial welcome there
Their knock is scarcely heard before the
door swings open to admit them,, and
hospitality and good cheer are graciously
extended to them. And in our picture we
see One making a long, long journey. He
leaves the Father's house above, He lays
aside the glory and honor and majesty
and power which have been His through
out the ages from the beginning of time,
and steps down among men. He travels
the dreary road of suffering. He endures
all the conditions and trials and tempta
tions of human life. The cross over
shadows His pathway. The crushing
weight of human sin falls upon His sin
less shoulders, and thus burdened He is
lifted up upon the cross that lies at the
end of the pathway of His human life
He becomes the willing sacrifice for
gin. He goes down into the grave of
death. He drinks the bitter dregs of sin
He pays the penalty of man's transgres
sions. He triumphs over death and the
grave. He breaks the fetters of the tomb,
He lays aside the grave eloths forever,
and issues forth the risen and living

Notwithstanding the long journey He
has made, notwithstanding all that He
has suffered and wrought for sinful
man, the Son of God Is kept waiting
without. I remember some year,s ago
cf reading the pathetic, sad story in
the newspapers of an aged father com
Ing from his home in Europe seeking
the son who years before had come to
this country to seek his fortune. The
Eon f ad prospered In the new land.
Ambition had come with wealth. He
had married an American girl, and as
the family grew up about them the
glamour of social distinction fascinat
ed them, and they coveted a place in
the fashionable world. The humble
origin of the father was one of the
buried things of the past. Every effort
was made to cover up and forget the
poor home and surroundings in the old
country. The old mother died, and then
came a yearning in the heart of the aged
father to make the long journey to Amer
ica to seek his son.
WE have not time to tell of the old
man's long, tedious, hard search,
of the great yearning in his heart that
kept him steadily pressing on from point
to point, of the privations through which
he passed, but at last he found him, and
with heart beating with hope and joy he
went with tottering, feeble steps up the
walk which led to the door of the man
sion where lived his son. With trembling
hand he knocked upon the door. But
there was no welcome there for him. In
nis broken English, for during the
months of his wanderings he had
learned enough to make himself under
steed, he told his story. The son was
summoned. But it was with anger and
wounded pride that he greeted his
aged parent. It would never do to
have it known that this poor, old, igno
rant foreigner was his father. And so
the father was refused admittance. He
was bundled off to the poor house as a
homeless vagrant. The long, hard Jour
ney was all in vain. How inexpressf
bly sad, and yet the spectacle of Jesus
coming from Heaven to earth, and
knocking at the heart's door and be
ing refused recognition or admittance.
Is infinitely sadder. It is the tragedy
of the ages.
"Arise! take down the bars of sin,
Attt let the loving Saviour in,
Make Him thy welcome guest.
He'll give thee of His richest grace.
He'll make thy home His dwelling piace.
And with thee ever rest."
4 nUT as many a3 received Him, to
D them gave He." Jesus does
not come empty-handed. The Divine
guest comes laden with gifts of eternal
richness and worth. To as many as
receive Him He gives. It is the pretty
custom in the oriental countries for the
guest to bring his gift, his treasure,
and bestow it upon the gracious host
Constant reference is made to this cus
tom in the Scriptures, a notable instance
being the visit of the queen of Sheba
to King Solomon. He received her gra
cicmsly and showed her the splendor
and magnificence of all his palaces,
and she in turn opened up her treasure
stores which had been brought on the
long train of camels that had accompa
nied her and gave to him gold and pre
cious stones and rare spices. And In
this country It Is a common thing for
one making a visit to carry gifts to the
friends In the home that Is to welcome
md shelter them. And it is a beautiful
figure which our text brings before us.
Jesus the guest having been admitted
Into the heart and life gives the treas
ure which He laid down His life to ob
tain for sinful, needy man. The queen
of ita tro-glxt trescu wild. do- j
mon could not find or obtain In hia
own land, and the Christ brings gifts
which man can never obtain except at
Christ's hands. "As many as received
Him, to them cave He the right to be
come children of God." A certificate of
sonship to God, a guarantee of eternal
claim upon the riches, and glory, and
blessing of the Father's House. The Son
of God; who is the heir of all things.
raises man to an equal relationship with
the Father, and he becomes a Joint heir
to all that God has to Jtive in this life
and the life to come. Ah! what folly to
keep Jesus waiting upon the outside
of the heart. Receive Him, oh, needy
soul! and let Him bestow upon you
His gift of sonship with God and eter
ND this is the picture of the Christ
in the passive mood. Waiting
patiently, longingly, lovingly, to be re
ceived by man. The vision of the
Christ in the active mood reveals to us
the great, throbbing heart of God;
shows us the persistent, faithful,
mighty effort which He is putting forth
to rescue man from the depths of sin
and death. The most glorious tribute
which was ever paid our Lord was that
whifh the angry and Jealous Scribes and
Pharisees gave when they contemptu
ously charged that "this man receiveth
sinners." It was true, and it has made
glad the centuries since He trod the
earth and the words were spoken.
Christ receiveth sinful men. Letusstudy
the details of this picture in order that
we may drink in its depth of beauty
and wealth of meaning:. No casual
glance will suffice to reveal all the
charm and meaning of the painting
of the artist. It takes the searching
eye and the meditating heart to under
stand it all. But as one sits hour aftei
hour before the masterpiece of art hov?
it unfolds and grows upon one's vision.
And so it is with this picture which
Scripture gives to us of the Christ re
ceiving sinful men. The heart will
never begin to "see or understand all the
depth of love and the wealth of Divine
grace which is here contained until it
gets over on the other side and sees
eye to eye and knows even as It is known,
but It may know and understand more
and more as it ponders on this blessed
truth: "This Man receiveth sinners.
And this is the picture. Jesus by right
of His Divine Sonship, in fulfillment of
IJis commission brought with Him from
Heaven, and by reason of His triumph
over sin and death, has established a
sure and everlasting1 retreat to which
the needy soul of man may flee for ref
N obedience to the command of God,
the children of Israel established
six -cities of refuge ln the new land to
which they had journeyed, in order that
those who were in danger of the avenger
of blood might find a safe refuge until
their cases could be tried by the Levites.
These cities of refuge were a type of
the Christ, and in figure illustrate
the service which Christ was to perform
for a lost and ruined race. God sent
His Son into the world to establish for
man a refuge from sin and its conse
quences. Death presses so hard upon the
heels of the guilty sinner who Is in
peril of everlasting destruction. What
a thrilling sight it must have been in
those old Jewish days to see the af
frighted runner fleeing for his life
towards the city of refuge, while press
ing hard after him was the man who
would take his life. VWbat a desperate
race it was! The Levites of the walls
of the city would watch with bated
breath. They note the waning strength
of the foremost runner, and observe that
the pursuer is slowly but surely gain
ing upon him. WTith bulging, bloodshot
eyes, distended nostrils and deep-heav
ing chest the men plunge on. Every
muscle is strained to the breaking
point. The veins and arteries stand out
like whip cords, showing that the blood
within is surging in sympathetic race.
and seeking to encourage and help, the
one to escape, the other to plunge his
dagger into the vitals of the first. On,
still on, the race continues. They come
within hailing distance of the city's
gates and the Levites call words of en
couragement and cheer. They descend
from the wall to the wide open portals.
They lean as far out towards the plain
as possible. They stretch forth the
hands to give ready help to the pursued
man. The hot, fierce breath of the
avenger is felt, as with redoubled ef
forts he seeks to claim his prey. The
hand is uplifted to strike. Another step,
and the keen, heartless blade will find
its scabbard In the quivering flesh and
drink the life blood of the fleeing man.
ITH a power born of desperation
the pursued man gathers up all
the remaining strength he can com
mand and makes one mighty plunge
towards the haven of safety and the
friends who are there to receive him.
Will he make it? Pursuer and pursued
leap into the air together. The plunge
of the hindmost man is greater. The
first falls in helpless exhaustion, and
the other in his leap hovers Just the
barest instant above him. and then,
nerving the arm and hand with all the
strength that is left, he brings the dag
ger down. Too late, you cry! At the
very portals of the city of refuge he
must perish! Ah, no. thank God! The
arms of the waiting Levites reach out
to save. The willing hands takehold
where the other's strength has failed,
and while the avenging blade is cut
ting the air in Its fierce downward
plunge, the prostrate form Is lifted
within the gates. He is safe! He is
safe! And never a soul that flees for
refuge to Christ Is overtaken by the
avenger, Death. The race is desperate.
All seems to be lost, but in that mo
ment of helplessness. In that time. of
imminent peril when sin is seeking to
inflict Its deadly wound, at just that
Instant the arms of Jesus reach out and
down and lift in gracious. loving, ten
der grasp to the place of safety at His
side. He receiveth sinful men, and noe
who come to IJim are ever cast out If
the cause of the refugee was not just:
if-he had killed In willful anger, then
he was delivered up into the hands of
the avenger of blood. But here is
where the type is defective and falls
to set forth the perfect work -of grace
which Jesus performs for the sinner.
The guiltless only were sheltered with
in the city of refuge. The guiltr only
are sheltered within the refuge which
Christ affords. He came not to call
the righteous, but sinners, to repent-
ance. He receiveth not the world's best,
but the world's worst He receiveth fin-

A WONDERFUL INVENTION.
The Bow and Arrow of the Bed 2an
Contrived in. His Prim
Another test of mental ability which
deserves special notice is mechanical in
genulty. Our white preeminence owes
much to this faculty, and tne lower races
are reckoned defective in it. But tne
lower races do invent, and it is doubtful
whether one invention is ever much
more difficult than another, says Prof.
W. I. Thomas, In the Forum, on tne
psychological side, an invention means
that the mind sees a round-about way of
reaching directly. - It brings into play
the associative memory, and involves
the recoernition of analogies. There Is a
certain likeness between the flying back
of a bough in one's face and the rebound
of a bow, between a serpent's tooth and
a poisoned arrow, between floating tfm-
bef and a raft or boat; and water, steam
and electricity are like a horse in one
respect they willall make wheels go
around and do work.
Now, the savage had this faculty of
seeing analogies and doing things In In
direct waysx With the club, knife and
sword he struck more effectively than
with the fist; with hooks, traps, nets and
pitfalls he understood how to seize game
more surely than with the bands; In the
bow and arrow, spear, blowgun and
spring-trap he devised motion swifter
than that of his own body; he protected
himself with armor imitated from the
hides and scales of animals, and turned
their venom back on themselves. That
the savage should have originated the
Inventive process and carried It on sys
tematically is indeed more wonderful
than that his civilized successors should
continue the process; for every begin
aing Is difficult.
When occupations become specialized
and one set of men has continually to do
with one and only one set of machinery
md forces, the constant play of atten
tion over the limited field naturally re
sults in improvements and the intro
duction of new principles. Modern in
ventions are magnificent and seem quite
to overshadow the simpler devices oi
primitive times; but when we considet
the precedents, - copies, resources and
accumulated knowledge with which the
modern investigator works, and, on tho
other hand, the resourcelessness ol
primitive man in materials, Ideas, and Id
the Inventive habit itself, I confess that
the bow and arrow seems to me the
most wonderful invention in the world.

A similar experiment had been tried
not long before, but it had turned out
to be a failure. It had been easy to pack
the Maine herring in olive oil and to
encase it in boxes which imitated the
French production, but the taste of the
herring remained unmistakable, and the
scheme failed. The New Yorkers, how
ever, after a few trials, hit on a mixture
or blend of spices and oils for a packing
sauce, which made a "sardine" of a her

TOOK BOY'S SUGGESTION.
Plowboy Came Oat of the Field and
Told Railroaders How to Start
A traveling man relates that while rid
ing on the new orient line between Harper
and Anthony a few days ago, one of the
side rods of the engine broke, and the other
side stopped on a "dead center," so that
when the repair was made it was impossible
to start again. According to the Kansas
Citv Star he says:
"The engineer, the . conductor and all
the passengers took turns going over the
thing and trying to devise a way to make
it run. Finally a boy came out of the held
where he had been plowing to see what was
foing on. He crawled through the wirt
ence and sat down on the bank and fanned
himself with his straw hat. 'If you'd back
that last car up the grade an' let 'er come
down gerchunk, that ud start 'er,' he final
ly suggested, deliberately.
"The railroad men sniffed contemptuous
ly but the passengers sided with the boy.
Finally the conductor gave order that the
rear car be uncoupled. No less than 50 pas
sengers caught hold and pushed the car up
the grade. Once at the top the car was
let go. The loose coach gained momentum
as it came down hill, and in spite of the en
gineer' admonition to 'let her come down
easy,' the emergency battering ram crashed
into the train with a tremendous thump.

Nolan's rich brogue were more than usual

The experience and testimony of some of the most noted
women of America go to prove beyond a question that Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will correct all such trouble and
at once, by removing1 the cause, and restoring1 the organs to Sk
normal and healthy condition.
"Dear 31ns. Pixkham: About two years ago I consulted a phy
sician about my health which had become so wretched that I was no
longer able to be about. I had severe backache, bearing-down pains,
pains across the abdomen, was very nervous and irritable, and this
trouble grew-worse each month. The physician prescribed for me, but
I soon discovered that he was unable to help me, and I then decided to
try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and soon found that
it was doing me good. My appetite was returning, the pains disappear
ing, and the general benefits were well marked.
" You cannot realize how pleased I was, and after taking the medi.
cine for only three months, I found that 1 was completely cured of my
trouble, and have been well and hearty ever since, and no more fear the
monthly period, as it now passes without pain to me. Yours very truly,
Miss Pearl Ackers, 327 Korth Summer St., Nashville, Tenn."
When a medicine has been successful in restoring1 to health
more than a million women, you cannot well say without trying1 it
'I do not believe it will help me." Jf you are ill, do not hesitate
to get a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and
write Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mas., for special advice. Her ad
vice is free and helpful. Write to-day. Delay may be fatal.
FORFEIT if we cannot forthwith prodnce fho original letters and signatures of
above testimonials, which, will prove their ahrolntg genuineness.
