fear that in only too many cases
the parents must answer, "We
do not know." They may be
at a neighbor's, they may be at
church, they may be at a moy
ing picture show. or they may
be on the street but the parents
do not know. They mgy be
learning something of what
true manhood and womanhood
is, or they may be taking lessons
in youthful depravity from pre
cocious but all too capable teach
ers, but the parents do not
know. Where are the horses

All safe in well-fenced pasture
or secure buildings, for we can
not afford to run any risk of
losing them. But the children?
Well! we don't know just where
they are. And yet, if anyone
on earth is responsible for the
welfare of those children it is
the father and mother. And if
damage comes to those children
because of thoughtlessness or
carelessness, those parents will
stand condemned in the sight of
God and man. And yet there
are children, little children of
six and seven, and older ones of
thirteen and fourteen, who are
roaming the streets at night,
unattended by any save the
ignorant, the foolish, or the
vicious, and their God ordained
guardians, the parents, are seat
ed comfortably at home, quietly
reading the newspaper or it
may be the Bible, or pleasantly
visiting at a neighbors, while
their little children are ignorant
ly wooing destruction. In re
gard to this matter we may lay
down one or two things as ab
The first is that the father
and mother are absolutel.y re
sponsible for proper oversight of
their children. It makes no dif
ference whether the father be a
distinguished preacher or an or.
dinary artisan, nor whether th<
mother be a woman of genims
or simply an ordinary house
wife, they are absolutely respon
sible for exercising a propel
oyersighit over their1 eildren,
and if they fail it is only too
probable that as word wvill pierce
their hearts, for which no suc

have any healing balm.
And this means that the fath
er and1 mother, have a right to
knowv and ought to k now,. where
and with whom, their children
spend their time. Th is is not so
easy as it uised( to be, buit the
parent should find out in sonme
way or- other.
And then the young children
should always b~e at home after

Many a ruined boy has been
ruined not by the criminality
of his young comrades, but by
the awful blindness and well

his own Christian parents, and
no bitter tears can ever blot out
the sin and the shame of a pa

LESSON FOR MAY 18
JOSEPH MEETS HIS BRETHREN.
LESSON TEXT-den. 42:3-17.
GOLDEN TEXT-"Whatsoever a man
soweth, that shall he also reap." Gal.
Joseph was thirty years of age when
he reached his position of supreme au
thority, but we ought not to allow our
selves to forget those thirteen years
of humiliation, during which he was
betrayed, sold into slavery and neg
lected by those whom he befriended.
Yet those were days of fidelity in his
service, of victory over fierce tempta
tion, of enduring unjust imprisonment
-a long period of patient waiting but
a valuable period in that now at thirty
years of age lie comes to this position
of power fully equipped with that
knowledge of men, control of himself
and faith in God as to be properly fit
ted for the burden of responsibility
thrust upon him.
Did Not Forget.
I. The Brothers Need, vv. 3.6. The
famine was not confined to Egypt, but
-reached over to Canaan, where Jacob
and his sons lived. The desperate
ness of the famine is indicated by Ja
cob's command to buy, "that we may
live, and not die." But Jacob is too
old to travel, hence the brothers un
dertake the journey. Twenty-two
years have passed since that experi
ence when Joseph's brethren cast him
into the pit. They have been years
filled with wonderful experiences for
Joseph. Now their attitude is changed;
instead of being his tormentors they
are suppliants at his feet. )uring
these seven years of garnering Joseph
had sot up his own family and two
sons were born, the names of whom
The possession of a child of his own
would naturally quicken his inquiries
as to his father's household, for lie
assumed that in the order of events
his father must be dead.
II. A Brother's Memory, vv. 7-17. Jo
seph at onco recognized his brothers,
but treated them brusquely, demand
ing from whence they came and the
purpose that brought them hither
(v. '). Again (vv. 8, 9) the text re
minds us that Joseph remembered.
Only God can forgive and forget. But
Joseph is an inspiration to us that
though we may not be able to forget
we can forgive. The question might
be raised, "Why then (lid Joseph dis
simulate?" The answer is threefold:
- (1) Joseph desired to ascertain the
characters of his brothers. Dild they
remember? Yes, for they r'eplied that
they were "twelve brethr'en." Ten
were before him, one at home and
"one is not." That their characters
were not entir'ely changed is evi
denced by theIr words, "We are true
men" (V. 11), which of course was not
the tr'uth. (2) Joseph desired to know
of his father and of their home life.
Th'le accusation that the brother's are
spies called forth the statement that
the father, Jacob, is still alive. The
third reason for this treatment devel
oi)ed out of these first twvo, viz., Jo
sephi desired to reach his father and
Benjamin, whom lhe had never Been.
We do not commend Joseph's method
as being of the highest ethical value,
for his standard w~as not the standard
of the man wh'o knows Christ. Josepti
Is a typ~e; thereo is only one perfect
man, Jesus Christ, and Joseph points
toward that promised Saviour.
Josep)hknew his brothers told the
truth about their not being spies, but
lie also knew that they lied when they
asserted themselves to be true men
and that one brother "is not." Here
is the lesson of mistaken estimates of
one's self and that a man's true value
Is known and appreciated. Little did
they realize, however, that their false
hood was being i'ead as it was uttered
and that the man before whom they
were standing was this same brother.
Joseph affected not to believe any of
their story and demanded proof (vv.
16, 16) of their assertions. After three
days in jail he appeared to relent and
ordered that only one of their number
should remain as hostage. The result
of all is shown in v. 21. After invol
untarily leaving Simeon shut up in the
Egyptian prison.their minds traveled
back to that time twenty years before
and they remembered Joseph's ani
guish and dfstress when they would
not hear, "therefore is this distress
come upon us." Their guilty con
sciences are aroused.
Jacob's cry, "All things are againsi
me," v. 36, was a mistake. Joseph
was alive and exalted that he might
save the life of Jacob and his chil
dren. Simeon was alive and drawing
his brothers back to* Egypt. Benjamir1
would come back safely.
Emphasize the fact that we cannel
forget our wrong acts and that Joseph
was not troubled by any such mem
ories. Also emphasize the return of
good for evil, Rlom. 12:20, 21. Joseph's
brethren were sowing the fruit of the
seeds of enwy and malice they had
sown twenty years previously. So aisc
was Jacob reaping the seeds of 'hii
deceit, for in spite of his great ma
terial prosperity he has great anguish
of heart. We try to sow and not tc
reap. See that the seed thoughts in
the heart are right.- The grace ol
God forgives sin, but it remains a
terrible fact in our lives.

It is a mistake to take calomel

and safer and its action, is just
as sure. There are none of the
