PROMISE TO "OBEY" DIDN'T
If a bride wishes to make secret
reservations to her promises at the
marriage altar of course neither bride
- groom nor clergyman can prevent her
doing so. At a luncheon one day last
e'eek frr a bride-ekect the talk ran
on the word "obey." The girls de
cided that part of the fornua was
obsolete. One ycor:g wife was at L--e
~iuon, and ity a efthat she
~d promised to obcy and had pro
neunced the word bravely. The girls
teased her until at last she explained
thus: "You see, in some churches you
have to say 'obey,' and I was married
in-orne of them. But when I enme to
those words I just crcssed my lingers
and so the promise didn't erunt at
all. I tell girls to do the same when

AN ELOQUE.iT SUNDAY SERMON BY
REV. GEORGE '-HOMAS DOWLING.
Subject: -The Secret cf Peace."
BROCKLYN. N. Y.-Dr. Thomas
Edward Dowling, minister in charge
of St. James's P. E. Church. St. James
place and Lafayette avenue, preached
Sunday morning on the subject. "The
Secret of Peace." a scudy of the Shep
herd Psalm. Dr. Dowling said:
Thirty centuries ago there lved in
Palestine a king, who in his boyhood
had been a shepherd lad. And in his
old age, when he had seen life, with
its sorrows and its joys, this king.
David, sang a song, which it takes less
than two minutes deliberately to re
Three thousand years have gone
since then; and to-day everything he
owned has turned to dust except his
songs. The throne on which he sat
-dust: the palace where he dwelt
dust; the harp which his fingers were
accustomed to sweep, the banner
with which he led the hosts of Israel.
his chariots, and his charioteers-all
dust! But to-day that song goes sing
ing its way to the universal heart,
in the cottage of the poor and the
mansion of the rich, in the home of
the learned and of the unlearned, be
cause it sings of what all the world
is hungering for-peace.
When Edward Irving swept through
the .ates it was with this song upon
his lips. Luther called it the "Little
Bible." Pnd so it is, for it contains
in miniature the whole book. Henry
Ward Beecher, who once made Brook
lyn famous, that greatest preacher
the world has ever known since Paul
stood on Mars Hill, called it "the
nightingale's song," because it sings
to us in the darkness. Listen while
I repeat it to you, that it may once
again sing its way into your heart.
(Dr. Dowling here repeated deliber
ately the Twenty-third Psalm.)
Now I yield Him not simply arlmira
tion. but adoration. It is the difference
between -He leadeth," and "He lead
eth me." If you would know what
God may be to you, learn to appro
priate. Him. Learn to think of Him
simply not as a God, but your God;
not simply as a friend. but your
friend; not simply as a shepherd, but
Xow, when you receive a gift there
are three things which you do with
it. Yo-i accept it, you examine it,
and you use it. And the gift which
this royal shepherd poet of three thou
sand years ago makes to us in this
Shepherd Psalm may prove more pre
cious to you than any which you have
ever received, if you deal with it in
just that way; the way of appropria
tion, of appreciation and of applica
'As you notice how very easy it is
to appropriate it. because it abounds
with those personal and possessive
pronouns, in which. Martin Luther
said, the preciousness of the Bible
consists: "The Lord is my shepherd."
"He leadeth me." "Yea, though I walk
through the valley."
What a great difference there Is be
tween the mere apprehension of a fact
and the approp::iation of that fact, be
tween knowing it and claiming it.
When you see a child in a runaway,
you are moved: but suppose it is your
child. There is the same difference
that there is between the stately man
sion of a stranger and the little cot
tage in which your mother rooked
you in her arms and crooned to you
the songs of your babyhod. So. my
friends, you never can judge of a re
Tigi-on until it has been transmuted
into a personai exnerience, until it
has become your religion. A histori
cal Christ is, at the most. only a
Chri;.. I can look upon Him with
admiration. Ah! but when He has
become mine, and I have heard His
voice, and felt His touch, He is no
longer simply a Christ but the Christ.
And then, when you have appropri
ated this psalm, seek- to appreciate it.
Notice, to begin with, the perfect spir
it of trust which breathes through it
all. See how much it has to say about
Him and how little about ourselves.
Mark how every verse tells us what
He is doing.
My dear people, that is the whole
secret. The secret of peace is the
putting of God between our troubles
and ourselves. I know the dark hours
which have come into some of your
lives; I know your pe:-plexities: 'or
though you are strangers to me as
yet, the experience of human hearts
is jiust the same the whole world
over, and the joys and the sorrows
of the men and women whom I learn
e. so well to know and to love on the
Pacific shores are just the joys and
the sorrows which you are having to
day. I know of the hour when some
young mother in this congregation sat
sobbing by the side of her little one.
whispering blindly, "I do not know
why she should be taken from me:
I cannot understand it." Well, my
dear chiid, do not try to understandi
it. for- you never can here. Some
day I shall preach to you on "Things
to be Waited For." and one of the
things to be waited for is the under
standing of these mysteries of life.
And yet we may know that while
we are waiting we -z.- be waiting
in companionship with Him who un
derstands it all. And there is no oth
er help for us in our dark hours. ex
cept in ylacing Him between our
troubles and ourselves.
Wilbur Chapman tells us of a litile
drummer boy in our civil war who was
taken into the hospital mortally
wcundei. and so they sent for his
mother from a distant city. 23ut when.
she came they said to her. "You can
not go in: he's too sick; L~e couldn'?
stand the shoclR." And so she stoo:3
by the door waiting and wesping and
listening. And when she heard him
sigh, she said to them, "'Let me go in:
I won't speak to him. I'll just sit
by his ,bedside."' And so they per
nitted -her to pass quietly into the~
darkenedi room andl sit beside hi:n
But as she sat there the mother hye
was too strong, and, reaching rut her
hand, she laid it aently upon his ach
ing forehead. He did not Open ii
-ves. Nit he knew that touch. S.a'
saw his lipS move, anid. stoopin-: daw:'
to him. she heard him say: "I krew
you'd enme to nme, I k-new you'd come
to me." And If you arc only willing
to welcome Him who loves you more
than you ever- loved your little one,
you may know that He will come to
you, and "as one whom his mother
comforteth." so will He comfort you.
And notice the blessings which he
brings when He comes. As David ex
presses it in this psalm. "they that be
long to Hinm shall fn.'d that their cup
'overflowetb' "; not onlv abunltdanc'e.
but redundiance. It has someitimes

Then follows 'zh closina scene of
the day. The sun is settinz. and the
fiock is being brought home. But
some of them have been wounded.
and some of .them are weary. And
so the shienherd stands at the door of
'the sheepfold. rodding the sheep. aq
it is termed: holding them back with
his rod. permitting them to enter one
by one. Here one has been bruis-fd
or torn by the briars, and from the
horn filled with olive oil he hathoe
the wounded head. And one is tired
and worn. and. dipping into the ves
sel the lart-e two-lhndle1 -up. he eives
him a drink. Thus the shenherd
cares for his sheep clear on till the
very hour of the homecoming. Noth
ing is forgotten. And so the psalm
ist sings. still with the picture of the
shepherd in his mind, "Thou anointest
my head with oft; my cup runneth
over." But I am anticipating.
"The Lord is my Shepherd: I shall
not want." What? Rest. "He mak
eth me to lie down in green pastures."
But the green pastures have to come
first. There is the contemplative life,
and the active life. And. my breth
ren. we need the first: that is the
meaning of these services: that is the
meaning of Sunday; that is. the mean
ing of Lent. It is a mistake for us
to suppose that we can get on in the
right life without these green pa
ture experiences. Somebody says. "I
.iudge of a man by what he does."
Yes; but what a man does grows out
of what that man Is. And here in
these contemplative hours we find
Christian manhood and womanhood In
And then. there is the leadership:
"I shall not want" -guidance: "He
leadeth me." That is the other side
af the Christian experience: the active
side. The purpose of these green
pastures is to send us forth to use the
strength which here we get.
And in this leadership of His there
are two facts which I would have you
remember. He goes before us: "He
leadeth." He will select no path
which his sheep cannot travel. But
remember also that the sheep. must
follow after: we must select no path
which He cannot travel.
"He leadeth me in the paths of
righteousfress." not always by the side
of still waters, not always in green
pastures- sometimes the sheep track
may lie across the wilderness; but
if we are following him we may know
that they are always "paths of right
eousness"-right paths, and that they
lead toward home.
And finally, "I shall not want" corn
panionship. "Yea, ibough I walk
through the valley of the shadow of
death. I will fear no evil; for thou
art with me." He who is following
the Master shall find death itself on
ly a shadow; and who shall be afraid
of a shadow? And though the v'al
ley may be there and the darkness,
He shall lead us out, as He leads us
in. Death is not a blind pocket; it
is not a place of tarrying. only of
transition. I shall walk "thr'ough the
valley: of the shadow of denath."
And now, having appropriated this
psalm, having sought to appreciate it,
let us try to apply it. I mean to-day.
here and now, and to-morrow, and
to-morrow, and to-nmor'row. every day,
For you observe that until we reach
the very last verse it is all in the
present tense. He is not speaking
of any distant elysium, far' away in
the futur . "The Lord is my shep
herd: he maketh me to lie down in
green pastures; He leadeth me beside
the still waters." All the blessings
which I have described may be yours
now. Will you take them for yours.
and apply them to the problems of
your life to-day? Oh, learn to pr'ac
tics the presence of God. Try to
think of Him as really at your side.
Spstak to Him when you are in trouble
or perplexity. Suppose you make a
test of this Shepherd psalm only for
to-day. Suppose you say: "From n~ow
until the hour when I fall asleep a:
right I will seek to live wvith this
thought supreme: that God is mine.
and that He loves me. and is leading
me." See what it will mean to you
in ucace and comfort and joy. And
then reelize that if you can do it for
cue day, you can 5o it fcr every (day,

I. The true idea of Sabbath observ
ance (vs. 1-6). 1. "Chief Pharisees." Ii
has been suggested that this iman may
have been a member or the Sanhedrir
with a country home in Perea. "Tc
eat bread." Our Lord had no home
and, when He was invited to dine, it
was as proper for Him to go on the
Sabbath u on any other day. 'They
were watching Him." R. V. were
maliciously watching Him.
2. "A certain man." This man may
have been brought there by the Phar
isee in order to test Christ. "Befor(
Him." Before the company had takeE
seats at the table. "Dropsy." A dis.
ease in which the body or some part of
it is filled with water.
3. "Jesus answering spake." Jesus
knew they were deceptive. and He was
ready to meet them. "The lawyers.'
The teachers of the law who were
present. "Is it lawful,*' etc. They are
In a dilemma; as lawyers they ought tc
know, but if they answered in the
affirmative they would endorse Christ
and His work, while to answer in the
negative would be to show their lack
of love and lay themselves liable to a
charge similar to that given in chap
ter 13:15. It was seriously argued
that to walk upon the grass with nailed
shoes was a violation of the Sabbath.
4. "Held their peace." Unable to con
demn, unwilling to concede. But such
silence was our Lord's complete public
justification. If the contemplated mira
cle was unlawful' why did not these
great religious authorities forbid It1
"Took him." Took hold of him (Luke
20:20; 1 Tim. 6:12). "Healed him."
Showing the opinion cf Jesus as te
healing on the Sabbath day. "Let
him go." Dismissed him and turned
back to the Pharisees, whose sancti.
monious hatred was worse than this
poor man's disease.
5. "Fallen into a pit." Jesus silences
them completely by calling attention
to the fact that they on the Sabbath
day would have mercy on a beast in
distress. Read Matt. 12:10-13; Luke
13:14-17. 6. "Could not answer Him."
Silent, but not convinced. The question
was unanswerable. If they would de
liver an ox or an ass from a pit on
the Sabbath, by what reason or com
mon sense could they say it was wick.
ed to save a man from his affliction?
II. A parable of humility (vs. 7-11).
7. "A parable." The selfish struggle
for precedence as they w&e taking
their places at the tab:e gave Jesus an
opportunity to teach a lesson in humil.
ir. "When He narked." Nothing es.
capes the eye of the Lord. "How they
chose out." To take the highest place
when it is not our due is public vanity;
to obstinately refuse it when offered,
is another instance of the same vice,
though private and, concealed. "The
chief rooms." The chief seats. R. V.
The guests reclined-on couches around
the table which formed three sides of
a hollow square. On .each side there
were three places. The middle place
was the most honorable.
8. "Bidden-to a wedding." He
speaks of a "marriage feast" (R. V.)
because the rules of procedure would
be more carefully ins~sted upon. "Sit
not down." The pride that apes hu
mility violates the spirit of this teach
ing. 9. "He that bade." The host
who has authority to decide the mat
ter. "With shame." Sooner or later
pride will have a fall.
10. "In the lowest room." The high
lace was occupied very briefly; the
lowest place was permanent. "Go up
igher." The way to rise is to begin
ow. What Christ 'omumandedl He Him
slf did. "Then shalt thou have wor
hip." "Have glory." R. V. Have
everence, respect and honor in the
resence of the company. 11. "Who
oever exalteth." etc. Now followVs the
reat principle illustrated by this para
le. Humility is the passport to pro
oton in the kingdom of God. The
one who is proud and seeks to be hon
red above others, shall be abased, or
umbled, both by God and man.

(g. 12-14). 12. "Call not thy frjinds."
The second parable is to the host. It
s a sharp rebuke on account of a fault
,hich is almost always committed in

SUNDAY, JULY 29.
How The Church Can Help the
World.-Col. 4. 5-16.
The alienated condition of large
portions of the population, even in our
own and, is evidence that there is
great need of some mighty evangel to
call people to the consideration of
things which concern their eternal
welfare. Only a fraction of the
youth of our country is found in the
Sunday school vnd the young people's
qocieties. The calendars of the crim
inal courts are lull. The prolific
sources of a great portion of the
crime and misery, the liquor sa
loons, are kept open by government
al provision, and are as much pro
tected by governmental police power
as churches are from molestation.
Surely the world needs help. There
is graft everywhere, it would almost
seem. Another picture lies before us
as we write. The door of Christen
dom stands ajar, and a comely figure,
representing Christianity. is looking
out. A "heathen Chinee" is a little
way off, shouting to her: "Ho, there!
Your doorstep needs cleaning!"
These are some of the objects lying
on and about the doorstep; the liquor
traffic, loot, war, opium, trade,
scandalous plays, erotic novels and
commercial greed. Is it not a part of
the business of the young host of
Methodism to clean the doorstep of
the house of Christianity?
Our daily Scriptures show us the
method by showing us, as Christians,
what we are and what our relation
ship to the world is. Christians are
salt; they are light-two essential
things. Salt stands for all things
preservative. Society would go down
into the reek of Sodom if it were
not for the element of Christian mor
als in it.' And but for these our
country would go the way of the dead
empires. whose wreckage strews the
shores of time.
Must our nation join the company
of the dead? We hope not; we do not
believe it will. Our faith is founded
on the fact that the leaven of Chris
tianity is in it, and this constitutes a
force which can more than neutralize
the power of evil tendency, and will at
last make every house a house of

Padded the Returns.
France does not take its censuses
as seriously as this country though
some Parisian wits are now paying
fines for the gayety of their answers
to the enumerators' queries. Some
towns and villages set about swelling
their population. 'Iarseilles and Lyons
were jealous about the second place
among French cities. Whether they
padded the returns or not does not
appear. but Cassoulet-sur-Lot, a lit
tle town in the South, was anxious
to bring its population up to 20,000,
so that its magistrates could have their
salaries increased by $125. As only
a few score of people were wanted,
the affaii was comparatively easy.
Cassoulet jail was made the work
house of a whole district, but entry
was obligatory, not permissive, for all
the tramps in the neighborhood. This
drafting of citizens was successful.
