fifteen years old.
Captain Chelton had a record uc

Ilfes, the score to his credit being 83,
and his work in this direction begin

of flfteea yearB, he leaped Into the ba

fallen overboard. An effort was made
to raise a purse for the lad, but he re

deavor. Captain Chelton, though a great life
saver, has also taken a life. This
was when he was a deputy sheriff of
Somerset county. On May 28. 1907,
he attempted to arrest Frederick
Long, who was wanted for larceny. He
ordered Long to surrender, but the
man Dred twice at him and then Chel

twice again and ran through a field,
where he was found dying with a bul

too, he drove several miles with the

Captain Chelton was born In North

bnt lived in Maryland during nearly
all of his life.
He was of medium height, but had
the breadth of shoulders and depth of
chest which betoken great strength
and a pair of sturdy legs which stood
him In good stead in many feats of
swimming by which he saved men on
the deep. He also made Beveral res
cues on land and saved three women
from being killed by trains.
He Is said to have had ample cause
for believing republics ungrkteful. for
he Joined the Union army at the out
break of the Civil war, expecting a
bounty of $300 besides hie pay for a
long service. When his term of en
Hutment was over and he settled up

for $5 which, he was told, was all that
was coming to him. He never cashed
the check, but kept It as a souvinir.
During a greater part of Mb time In
the army he was piloting federal gun
boats In Maryland and Virginia wa

he piloted three gunboats in an attack

that In making such a statement Doc

that from his knowledge of the prog

that "we are rapidly approaching a
mad world." He added: "In every
part of the world civilization Is ad

This lesson deals with the last ol
'.hose four events that marked the
crisis In the life of Jesus at Caperna
um. It occurred Just b'.fore the third
period of his Galilean m.'nistry and hla
final departure for Jerusalem.
lessons II. and VII. of the second
quarter of tills year showed us Jesus'
attitude towards the law. Here we
eeo his attitude towards rabbinical tra
dition. (1) They are the traditions of
men, and not the law of God. (2) They
were made a pretext whereby men
eadrd tho commands of the law.
We Fee before us three general divi
sions, I. The accusation, v. 1-5; II.
The answer, v. 6-13, and III. The ap
plication, v. 11-23.
Tha growing hatred of the Phari
sees led them to make the long Jour
ney from Jerusalem that they might
observe him and find wherein to nc
cuse him. While they were studying
him they at the same time revealed
their Ideal of the kingdom of God.
They took special notice that the dis
ciples of Jesus ate without the careful
observance of the ceremonial cleans
ing of their hands. We must not un
derstand this to mean so much tho
removal cf actual uncleanness, but
rather that the disciples had neglect
ed the ceremonial oservance of the
washing of hands of which the Phari
sees were so punctilious. Mark (v. 3
and 4) adds illumination by calling
especial attention to these traditions
to which the Jews adhered bo tena
ciously. , Thus wc can see that their
ideal of man's relation to God wa3
largely a matter of external ceremony.
Parity tc them was an outward mat
ter, something largely governed by the
traditions of men and which they had
"received to hold" y. 5. The answer
of Jesus reveals a very opposite Ideal,
ife begins by calling the Pharisees
hypocrites. A hypocrite is a play
actor, one who hides behind a mask.
Then applying the prophecy of Isaiah,
Jesus tells the Pharisees that they
'are hiding their true character behind
the mask of ceremonial cleansing.
Such play acting Is but a poor Imi
tation of the real heart condition de
manded by God (Ps. 51:10). Their
hearts were far from God even though
with their lips they professed to
serve him, "and many like things
ye do." Tho service which Is pleas
ing to God is the doing of hla will. It
consists not la the fulfilling of a rit
ual, but in tS fulfillment of life, e.
a growing cnaracter.
Jesus takes advantage of this dis
cussion and turning to the mutitude
upon whom the Pharisees would bind
euch a grievous burden of cermonial
lam and falsehood (Matt. 23:4) warns
them that It Is not so much that which
enters into a man that defiles him, but
rather that which proceeds out of a
man, v. 15. It seems quite natural that
the disciples should be perplexed and
should ask Jesus what waB meant by
such a statement. Jesus' answer, v.
18-23, shows us very clearly that
these things coming forth, reveal the
corruption within. Head Matthew
12:34, 35, Gen. 6:5 and James 3:10-12.
Real purity is purity of heart, If ttie
heart be not cleansed, what will It
avail if we wash the hands? What,
then, is the application for this pres
ent day? Clearly we are taught the
danger of lip service without a change
cf heart. The danger cf substituting
the good for the best Forms and
ceremonies are good and have their
place.' They are significant. They
are important teaching factors, but
they must not be substituted for a
pure heart. We must beware lest we
hide behind euch a mask.
There Is here also tho plain teach
ing as to Jesus' estimate of the Pen
tateuch and lnfeientially of the proph
ecy of Isaiah. He specifically calls It
the "Word of God." Surely we can
accept his cstlmuto as contrasted
with the traditions of tho elders or
the "consensus of modern thought."
There Is here also a great opportu
nity to emphasize filial duly. This
Is a day and a time that needs empba
tils upon the fifth commandment. Con
Bldenition of parents' sacrifice, co-operation
with them In the bearing of
burdens, comfort for them In sorrow
and adversity, and cheer for then as
they Journey down life's pathway. Fil
ial disrespect and an iconoclastic Ir
reverence of things holy are two
things that are cursing the rising gen
eration. And lastly, there Is here a lesson
to emphasize as to what constitutes
real cl-.!unsing. Tho believer Is
cleansed "once for all." Heb. 10 1-12.
but needs frequent daily confession
that he may abide In unbroken fel
lowship. The blood of Christ not
