saying: "Kciir, for the Kingdom uf Heaven
is at hand." Tho salvation of Jehovah,
whether it Is. the Kingdom oirored to Irnel,
or the higher position olfeml to the church.
Is a prepared salvation even as Sialism Kiid:
"Thy salvation which Thou hast preiarcd"
(Luke ii, :m. Hi); and il is a II, from llrst to lust,
Jiiiiiiii.il up In Jesus Christ,
is. "And (hey all with one consent U-gnn
to make excuse." Nothing to do but lo take
il; simply to accept the Invitaliou an. Is
there; jet they prefer not to. How- anxious
many are to g t an Invitation to anything
great In this world, and how disuppdtitisl If
left out. Hero is the (lisl of Heaven inviting
imeiy 10 ine ricnca ot ins grace and glory,
nnd it is not considered worth accepting.
His feast is despised, Hi invitation spurned.
"I have bought a piece of ground, and 1
must nei-ds go and seo it: I pray thee have

l'.. "I hnvo boneht livoyokeof oxen, and
I go to prove tlirni: I pray this) hnvo me
excused," Lin ls must l iuh ii to, and oxen
must lie proved, but the great feast provided
by inlhilie love may go a Urging. It is
nothing to them. Tho earlh is the l,,r,l'sand
the fulness thonsjf; the rattle on a thousand
hills aro lbs (ls. xxiv. I: I. lui: vet tlu-mnrn
fisihi (ami plenty of tliem ts!uy) who preforn
little wliich they can luiivhiise to thuensit
riches niiieh the Lnrdnf all olfers so freely to
"whosis'yer will." Any one of these ten oxen
wasa rebuke to their owner, for it is written
"Tho ox liiioivctli its owner. but mv
10.00 eople do not lui m" iIki. i, Was it not
miner iaie hi pi-ovo oxen alter liiiylng theiui

fore I cannot come." This Is iw bettor Hum
theotlicrs, yet l he refusal is even more de-
cldcd "I cannot come." If the iiivituiioii did
uot Ineludu bis w ife, he iiiizht have had soinr
excuse; but (itsl's invitations ineludu all who
are willing; und while Hie others might have
to leavo their lauds ami ns.n, lie could bring
bis wife with him.
21. "Ho that servant mine, ami showed his
lord these thiugs." A servant has only to
deliver his iiiastor's message, and take the
answer luu-k.if there isuuy; liu litis ii.ipiwer
to excuse people. Our ris.;s.iiil,ilny muses
when we luive lovingly and f.nthfuMy eiven
the Im itation, proclaimed the glad iiduigs.
Then it Isjeomes us, like Hie disciples, to t II
Jesus all we have done and luulit (Mark vl,
3U), leaving results with Him. His command
to Eickiel was, "Sis-alt my n,,i d. unto thou
whether thoy will hear or whether they will
forliear" (Kiw-k. II, 7).
"Oootit quickly Into tho si roots and lanes
of the city, and bring in hither the pour,
slid tho maimed, and the halt, and the
blind." Thine havo no earl lily pissessious or
pleasures to entangle them; lliey will lie more
likely to accept tho invitation.' It was lust
lutue tour classes winch je.iis advlissl the
I'haruss', in whoso hoii-e Ho nas, to Invito to
his feast lu order Unit ho might la) recom
isnised at the nsiirrectluti of lnu Just.
'ti. "And the servant said, Lord, it la dona
as Thou hast commanded, and yet there is
room." Tho servant has only to obey, lov
ingly to deliver his mes-sigc', and report for
further orders. It Is tint said whether any
amoug those classes excusi-d tnemselves or
uot, but It Is said "Vet there is n " Wlmt

For fifty years electrieians have boen

recently no results of commercial value
liavo been obtained. Such a method

is changed to electricity as simply as
