"It's a curious thing," he said, med
itatively, as he put down his newspa
per, "one of the most curious things
that ever happened to me." He was a
gentleman of suburban residence and
unimpeachable charactor, and the most
curious incidents of his life happened
to him habitually. If he took a cab
from Charing Cross to the City, you
might be certain that, upon his soul,
one of the most curious sights he ever
witnessed would be presented to him
on the way. He saw his insignificant
life thrcugh a magnifying glass. Ili3
family were quite usee to thi3, and his
declaration created no excitement. His
"wife said languidly, because she knew
it was expected of her, "Well, George,
and what was it?"
George passed a large, fat hand over
Mb troubled eyes. "It'c a difficult thing
to say, exactly," he said ponderingly;
"I should describe it as a trick of the

course, totally untrue.

kind," he said, with puckered brows.

"You? No. Certainly not. Of course
not I shall get it in a minute."
But he went off to church with his
family without having' got it, and in
an increasingly irritated frame of

manner, in the intimacy of his family
circle was certainly brusque, especial

"But you did. It was in one of the
responses, and you suddenly said

thought everybody would have heard
"Did I? If I did it was because I
fcappened to think just at that moment
that I had got hold of the thing that
I was trying to remember before

nobody on earth can l:elp you."

In fact, to make a note of it."
"And now ycu ve forgotten it," said
his wife, injudiciously.

"Well. George, if you tell tis what
the answer in, very .ikely we can give
you the question. It nee-urn bo silly for
you to worry yourself like this, when
it may bo a riddle that one of us
knows. As a girl I was very fond of
anything of that kind. I even wrote
them out In a book."
"It's extremely unlikely that you
would know it. Boders gavo it to me
as quite the latest thing. Williams,
who was with me at the time, had
never heard it before, and it was quite
new to me. However, sooner than be
bothered any further about It I will
tell you what the answer was. The an
swer was, 'From the way she does her
hair.' Now, then, what was the ques
tion?" There was dead silence around the
mahogany tablo. Brows were wrin
kled in deep thought. His wife re
peated the words over and over again
under her breath with a pious but un
founded belief that thl3 would help
"Now, then," said her husband
sharply, "you pretended that you knew
the question what was It?"
"I can't help thinking that I've heard
it," she said, feebly.
And then George's wrath broke forth
upon her, and she was asked why sho
had interfered at all. Left to himself
he would have settled the whole thing
by then. If ho wanted to remember a
thing he could remember It. That was
certain. He was not In his dotage. But

Then he complained of the closeness
of the room, tugged at the cord of his

was nothing bettered.
As the Sunday wore on to Its hag

requested him to give it up. Then he
pulled out the heroic stop. This par
ticular riddle though it wa3 the most
amusing he had ever heard In his life
was nothing; but the principle of
the thing was everything. To give In
would be a sign of weakness. He was
not the man to put his hand to the
plow and then look back. What suc
cess he had had in life had been due
chiefly to his indomitable persever
ance. His wife said that it was just the
same with Napoleon. This may or may
not have been true, but it was the best
card she had played yet. It procured
a respite of an hour.
At the end of that hour he sacked
the page; the boy's lot had been for
long in the balance. He accelerated
the bedtime of his youngest son by one
hour. He refused everybody permis
sion to do anything. He said that ex

When a man who wears glasses gets
a cold in his head he has a hard time.
That fact is apparent to anybody who
gets about town at a time when grip
is prevalent and watches the antics of
the sufferer. It is not ' the watery
condition of the eyes that gives him
trouble, it is his nose. Not one man
in a thousand can keep his glasses
on when he blows his nose; conse
quently he who performs that nasal
office frequently has considerable diffi

and then before he can find out where
it was, his attention is forcibly direct

A man who has had experience with

them off every two or three minutes,

When the mm of Ansterlitz Uj.tt h-.nl
bathed the earth in glory at it ri.-uiiff, o.uil;
eclipsed in blood behind the plain of Wat
erloo, the file of the imperial guard dtiiw
up a on parade and died beneatir the llai:.
But in the hour of Hi extremist need the
comrade of Christ "forsook Him anf
lied." Those that had Keen Him wallc the
atorni swept lake; conquer disca with' a
iincer-touch and dethrone deatlr with a
eyllahlc, when a squad of hireling witln
awards, nnd the riffraff of the ntr witlr
slaves, came out to take Him, they forsook
Him nnd fled.
Jesus walked the pathwuv of tws,. and
no oni kept step with Him. The hour
lu sounded for chivalry, and His friends
exhibited poltroonery. The rail was for
heroes, nnd those lie loved allowed their
back to Christ, instead of their face tof
the foe. Occasion beat the long roll, bu6
the battle line became a rout. Imagine
that sceno reversed. lma?iric that cordoiv
of npostlea buttressin? Christ against as
aault aa with a citadel of rock. We can
almost see them rooting themselvea like
atorm-defying oaks, and opposing; the
metal corslet of Christ's foe with the
breastplate of their invulnerable nlfection.
We can almost see them converting Geth
semane into a Gibraltar of affection, and
shattering the onset of embittered ierse
etition upon the impregnable front of a
devotion that was stronger than death.
We are well nigh enviuu of their oppor
tunity of renown.
The possibility of such loyally h3 not
yet passed away, it ha not yet become im
possible for one to show a stalwart alle
giance to Jesus Christ in the face of con
tempt and antagonism. "They are not yet.
dead that seek the young- child's life.".
Christ doe not recede with the ebb of
passing years. The men of Ilia age are
sleening in their sepulchers.
The first element of heart failure is dis
appointment. The apostles had a very wed
defined theory as to what Christ had coma
to do for them, but they 4ud thought very
little of what, they were to do for Ilim.
They had a clear conception of the prere
quisite of discipleship. They were deeply
concerned as to the pattern of their crowns.
They knew to a nicety the Comparative
altitude of their thrones, and thev were
anxiously parcellin2 out the cities ever
which they were to rule. With their leet
treading the very ascent to Calvary they
were badgering each other as to which of
them should be greatest. Jesus had come
to give them a life of case nnd self-satisfaction.
No more stormy nights out upon
Gennesaret; no -more tugging at the nets
and pulling the wet cordage of their boats;
no more weary drys brawling in the Caner
naum market place to get salt for their
meat and butter for their bread. Christ
had a whole cornucopia of splendors to
empty into their lap kingships, and dig
nities, and thrones, and scepters. When
as with a lightning stroke all these fond
dream went whistling down the wind,
and their cloud nalaces vanquished like
mist at sunrise, disappointment thrust its
iron into the soul, and away they went,
spurred by an imnulse which for the mo
ment was irresistible. Their thought had
been centered on the good they were to
get, not upon the good they were to do.
It is not impossible that you and I
should just as mistakenly interpret the
purpose of Christ's mission. In some piv
otal moment the consciousness of sin un
expectedly leaps up and chills us with its
shadow. We are lashed by the scorpion
whip of conscience. We shudder nt the
thought of death. The awe of eternity
overshadows' us. With timid lingers we
open the Book of God. With eaer eye
we scan the page of Scripture. A wondrous
gospel salute us. vJlad tidings ring like
music through our hearts concerning One
who has a welcome for the outcast, who
can whiten the most soiled soul, who will
uplift the fallen and recall the wandering,
and who has planted His mighty heel upon
the head of death. We kneel rejoicingly
at the foot of the cross. We surrender our
life into the keeping of Jesus. We yield
Ilim the ready homage of our hearts. Then
comes the danger hour. Then we are iu
peril of thinking how much Christ has tc
give, and too little of what He is training
us to give. Then we are prone to dwell in
imagination with the spirits of just men
made ierfect, and the comnnnies of tht
sliming ones who walk with Christ in glory,
until we lose touch with the men and
women who throng about us warped nnd
stained with the sin nnd sorrow of the
world. We forget that forgiveness is
not tne last word bit the first
word of the Gospel. We forget thai
pardon is not the last utterance but
the first utterance that Jesus has spoken
Wo overlook the fact that there is a rulUii t
of character which demands the energy ol
a hero nnd the patience of a devotee, that
there is a service of others that calls foi
the crucifixion of self.
Another element of heart failure l!
doubt. How -was it r-.osih'e for the nnos-
ties to recognize a Messiah under arrest 1
Was this the upshot of centuries of proph
ecy? Was this the story that the mcssen

ner. Tinre wm nn element of personal
peril that' nijrlit whifli' we must not' ttzt
to introduce into mr analysis of t lie im
pulses that drove the apostles nwny fAWl
Christ. In ail likelihood the thought of
danger litt'e affected the comrade o!
Jesus. With u it i apt to be the nver
mastering consideration. The rctreatm
nnostle Mere not so much afraid' ot some
thing n tp nre. We" talk nbout atisruure
monarchy. We reheart-e stories of Siberian
atrocity until the blood' chills. There m
but one absolute monarch the ezir of hu
man opinion, 'lhe ukase which he isMies
Irag us nil into a Siberia' of meanness but
faintly tipyfied by the degradation of
those gloomy mines that burrow into the
Asiatic mountains. The opinion of the
world exiles linear, feeling. It dungeon'
truest manhood. It rivets chain and hall'
en our loftiest aspiration. It vetoes i:ide
perdence. We dare not be free and manly
and genuine. It make our feet fast in the'
stocks of it whim. We are all the while
asking which wav the weather cock points-
and v.e trim. We are diligent in inquir
ing how the current sets, nnd we veer, in
stead of nsking whither the needle points
and setting our prow to- the pole star; in
tilend of reading the chart and laughing to'
acorn the fret and roar of th" billows. Wc
serve Christ, by the world's permission.
Whv should we be o deferential to- the'
world's opinion? If vou slip, will' the
world help you up? If vou have blotted
lie fair pnjre of vour life, is the world
hc'riin1? you to whiten it? If yon are sick,
will the world p!nv physician? If yon are
struggling with all the enersy that is in
your soul to scale some starry height of
purity nnd of riohilitv will the world lend
yo" a hand? When yc.rr path tnters-the
valley of the shadow will the world walk
beside you on that lonely and mysterious
way? When your stay here i ended' will
the world spend one thought upon you,
keep flowers growing on your grave or tear
the lichens from your tombstone? There
i onp who loves you. one who. whenever
you slip, has an nrm of love ready to catch
yon; when you fall has messages of hope
ready to whisper in yonr ear. He will
whiten vour soul. He will pird your weak
ness. He will school your ignorance, lie
will slnre your sorrow. He will companion
yon a you cross the frontiers of time. He
will introduce you into- an unclouded
eternitv beyond. Why care very muclv fo
the opinion of the world in which we are
but a fraction now. and in which to-morrow
we will be a cipher? Why not very
keenly care for one whose love envelops
Dur being aa with an atmosphere?
Turn the page and read the later story of
apostolic loyalty. I he sequel is dtnerent
from the preface. Call the- roll' of that
glorious company of the apostles and' hear
very compass point ring with fidelity to
Jesus. Read how they sowed the earthi
with martyr blood from Abysainia to- Inr
dia. Begin the chronicle with that tradi
tion of Simon Peter, who waa- led ui to
death in the lloman amphitheatre while
his wife ivaa frowned with martyrdom
before his eyes, to shake if possible the
stanch rock of hi bedded faith. And
while she suffered he called her by name
ind addressed her in terms ot most endear
ing nffection and exhorted her to remem
ber the love of the blessed Lord and to- be
firm until the very end. His turn came
next. He had but a single favor to ask
from God as he stood there in the old
Roman circus face to face with death, and
that was that he might remain firm tor
one more hour. He had but a single favor
to ask from man, and that was that he
might be crucified head downward, as it
was too great an honor for one who- had
deserted Jesus to suffer in the same way
Jesus did. lhe whole company of the
nnostles went sweeping home to their
Master in chariots of fire. They sealed
their allegiance to Him witfr their blood.
Since the night of panic they had come to
fee .Jesus under a new aspect, lhev had
known Him aa a friend. He had a place
it their table and a voice hr the home talk.
He had a seat at their firesides and
hare in their plans. They- had strolled
together un and down the lield paths.
lhey had paced side by side through tliff
fitv streets. Jle had colored their svm
pathies. molded their character, enriched!
their lives: but the bond of friendship
broke in the hour of trial. They had
known Him a a teacher. They had been
inscinated by the crystal-clear form of Hi
statements. They had thrilled to th
searching nnd subtle touch of His moun
;ain sermon. Thry had felt the subtle
;havm of T I is parables, but the spell of Hi
jvisdom did not keep them true on the
nht of Ilis betrayal, lhey had seen Jlim
is a miracle worker. Thev had beheld
,nc storm s.ecn m;c a ciiim at ins com
mand. They had witnessed Ienroy eon-,-erted
into purity nt His touch. They had
icen the winter of the sepuleher bloom
nlo the spring when His sandals touched
.ha lintel of the tomb, but the power of
Ic.-us did not armor them to look upon
the face of fear. But since that hour of
heart failure thev htI come to .know Iii in
aa their Saviour. They had seen Jesus die
for then:. They had felt the touch of love
that death cou'd not quench. They had
been beneath the nrma of the cross out
S'TCtched to shelter them. They had caught,
the accents of His parting prayer, ''Father,
forgive." They had heard His triumph
tdiout, "It is finished." As their re
deemer Jesus l'ivclcd them to llimscli with
hooks of rtccl.
