as 'tey were then.
done away with
some of tire-jel
ty and barbarism
In the world, but
nature Is precisely the same to
as it was 2,000 years ago. It is
thoroughly selfish and sinful, and
nothing but the grace of God can
make It otherwise. (John 3.18, 19; I
Cor. 2:14; Eph. 4:18.)
No matter how amiable and hon
orable and public-spirited a man may
be, without Christ he Is lost and needs
to be saved. "He that bath the Son
bath life, and he that bath not the Son
of God hath not life;" that Is, he Is
II. Remember that'the Lord Jesus
will save some souls through you If
you will co-operate with him. You
have some gifts and more or less in
fluence. If you will consecrate your
gifts and Influence to the service of
Christ, he will certainly use them to
win some of your friends to himself.
While Jesus was In the world he was
the light of the world, but now that he
M~ e, "Ye are the light of the
world." and your mission Is to so
shine as to guide others out of dark
ness Into the marvelous light of God.
III. Remember that Jesus will fur
nish all the equipment you need. Do
you lack wisdom? "I will give you a
mouth and *isdom which all your ad
versarles shall not be able to gainsay
or resist." Do you lack courage? "Be
stong and of a good courage; be not
afraid, neither be thou dismayed: fo'
the Iord thy God is with thee whith
ersoever thou goest." (Josh. 1:9.) Do
you lack power? "All power is given
2unto me In heaven and earth." (Matt.
)Do you lack faith? "The

who loved me, an& gave himself for
me." Jeremiah said, "Ah, Lord God!
behold, I cannot speak; for I am a
child." But the Lord said unto him.
"Say not, I am a child, for thou shalt
go to all that I shall send thee, and
whatsoever I command thee thou
shalt speak." Remember that all your
Inexperience and Inability amount to
ninthing in the face of the Master's
express command, "Follow me. and I
w1ll make you fishers of men."
Three Things to Do.
1. Set the winning of souls before
yon as a definite aim in life.
An aimless life Is generally a use
Ie'es life. The people who succeed are
dsually those who set a definite object
before them and say. "This one thing
[ will do, whatever the cost may be."
The men who accumulate fortunes,
who secure political appointments, as
a rule, are people who have been
bending all their energies In one direc
tioni for many years. Why should not
ChristIans set the winning of souls
before them as a definite purpose In
life? And who Is there who could not
succeed If he would' put the same
amount of thought and interest Into
It that he does into his business? No
one expects to succeed in business
without toil and patience and sacri
It. Cultivate a passion for souls.
David Brainerd, whose biography
ought to be read often by every Chris
Clan worker, used to say: "I care not
where I go, nor what hardships I en
dure, if~Jcan only see souls saved.
~J3"r'mik of by day~ and dream of
by night Is the conversion of men."
Often he would go out Into the for
est In mid-winter and kneel down In
the snow and wrestle In prayer until
his clothing was wet with perspiratIon.
Many a time he spent the whole night
in prayer for the poor Indians among
whom he labored, and in almost every
such Instance, one 'r'l find in his
diary two or three days after some
such entry as this: "Today as I
preached the word, the power of God
came down upon those stolid, immov
able Indians, and melted and broke
their hearts, and swept them into the
kingdom by scores."
III. Begin and continue all your
work with prayer. Pray for all men.
(I Tim. 2:1-4.) "I exhort, therefore,
that prayers, intercessions, and giving
of thanks be made for all men." One
advantage for praying daily for each
man, woman and child on the face of
the earth is, that you never meet a
person whom you have not prayed for,
and many times.
It Is a good plan to make a list of
half a dozen of more persons in whom
you are especially interested, and
mnake them an object of daIly inter
cession, at the same time looking for
their conversion. A Sunday school
teacher who began praying for his
class had the pleasure of socing elev

things all speal
of the believer'i
state or position before God, and con
stitute what might be called his lega:
In this sermon, however, we are tc
think about what God graciously doez
to transmute this legal standing o1
the believer before him into the actua
experience and conduct of the believ
er himself. This is what we mean b:
"salvation from the subjective side.'
If the other things touch on Christ'
work "for" us, these relate to Christ's
work "in" us, on the supposition that
we have received him as our Savior
and confessed him as our Lord.
In other words, he, through the Holy
Spirit, does several things which ge
to make the true believer a holy man
and which are enumerated in thi
eighth chapter of Paul's letter to thE
Romans; for although our text is lim
ited to but one verse, we intend tc
speak of more than one.
In the first place, the Holy Spiri
sets the believer free from the la%
of sin and death, verses 2 to 4.
Prior to his regeneration througi
faith in Christ, the believer was un
der the power of a tendency or lam
In the direction of sin, the outcora
of which was death, eternal death;
but the incoming of tht Holy Spirit tC
him means that a new tendency or la
has been set up within him whose di
rection is just the opposite to this.
In the second place, the Holy Spirn
gives him the spiritual "mind" or dis
position to obey and follow out this
tendency in the direction of holiness
and eternal life-verses 5-1g.
In the third place, he not only gives
him the spiritual mind, but goes far
ther and gives the spiritual power tC
exercise that mind, verses 11-13, sc
that the Christian has no e:xcuse fo:
A Life of Victory.

eradication of evil from our hearts

It does teach that there is such:

help them so far as their old natur
is concerned, but the very purpose o
the indwelling of the Holy Spiriti
to enable them to live a supernatura
life of power over them if they yielt
their wills to him.
In the fourth place, thle Holy Spiri
gives the believer spiritual encourage

Should Have Heeded il Omen.
The wisest of us have our pet su
perstitions, one or more. The great
house of Rothschild has unwritten
canons on the subject. The head of
the firm, if he met a pig on his way
to the office, would not conclude any
financial transaction on that day. On
one occasion he determined to rise
above his weakness, and, after meet
ing his omen, he arranged a large
loan, by which the firm lost over a

Habit That Should Be Checked.
Twisting the mouth when talking Is
a habit pure and simple and one that
you can overcome if you exercise suf
ficient will power. This habit makes
more lines than age. Talk before a
iu rror and you will understand why
so many lines are forming. A little
piece of court plaster placed each
side of the mouth will act as a con
tant reminder, until you have broken
yourself of the habit.
Titled Men Chased Indians.
Many Oxford and Cambridge men
in quest of the romantic enlisted in
the Royal Northwest' Mounted Police
of Canada. Many dukes, earls and
bnrons also look with pride to the
days when they chased Indians and
cattle thieves over the Canadian
plains. These men for many years
preserved the law and order in the
wildest parts of Canada.

The heron is not the only builder of
strange nests. Wild pigeons, the blue

-Greatest Falls in AfrIca.
The Victoria Falls, on the Zam
besi river in Africa, are the greatest
in the world. The water falls four
-hundred feet, and at this place the
river is a thousand feet wide. They
were named for Queen Victoria, who
ruled England, in 1855, when Dr. Liv
ingstone discovered these falls.
ipecac Needs Moist Soil.
Ipecac, a trailing plant, thrives best
in clay soil along the banks of rivers.
While It requires a great deal of mois
ture, it cannot live under water, and
consequently in Colombia it is found
at its best development in regions
where the rivers do not overflow.
