According to the book of the play he should have received no answer to hie call, and after an appropriate pause should have gone on with a mono logue. But a graceless "god" In the gallery took upon himself to answer the actor. "All right, I'm coming In a moment. How much do you want on it?" he shouted. The effect on the audience may be imagined.

HUBBY GOT THE GOODS, BUT It Was In the First Flush of the Hon eymoon, and He Says "Never Again!" "Never again," was the conclusion of a story told by a young bridegroom of the month, after he related his ef forts to please his bride by fulfilling her every wish. Sitting in his office a few days after the wedding he received a telephone call which was something like this: "Dearie, I do so hate to trouble you. but I have run out of lace for that dress I was making, and I can't finish it until I have another yard. Can't you stop at the store and get some as you come home Oh, I can tell you what it i3 like just four leaves, then a sprig, then four leaves, then a sprig. and so on It's just two threads over an inch wide." He hung up the receiver and mopped his brow. He-Talked by the store twice, finally entered and approached the lace counter. She was pretty, but he had been married only a week and was busy repeating in his mind "Four leaves, then a sprig." "Well, after looking at 500 samples of lace, I got it, but ." Indianapolis News. Rather Effeminate. Congressman Peter J. Dooling oil New York smiled the other evening when reference at a dinner was made to effeminate ways. He said he was reminded of the explanantion of Smith. Some time ago the Smiths attended a reception where they met a man named Brown. On the way home, while exchanging opinions of the guests, Brown was mentioned. "Speaking of that man Brown." vig orously remarked Smith, "he certainly has an effeminate way of talking." "Why, John," was the wondering re joinder of Mrs. Smith, "How can you say that? He certainly has a very loud and masculine voice!" "Yes, I know he has," explained Smith, "but what I mean is that he talks all the time." Philadelphia Tele graph. Heartless.

College boys who put money in their purses by toil in Kansas wheat fields will not be discouraged by this story: "I think I smell burning meat," said the farmer, as he paused for a moment in the harvest field to mop his brows.

One needs hard ly to be told that these sentences are found In that "Pearl of Para bles," which ws call that of the Prodigal- Son. They- mark the crista in . the career of this lost boy; perhaps they may point the way borne for you. " Jesus spoke the parables in this chapter in answer and scribes who to the Pharisees murmured and said, "This man re celveth sinners and eateth -with them." Yes, he did, and he does; that is our encouragement and our hope. Let us use the story by way of application. Rejection. Nothing the father had was good enough for the younger son. The fa ther's will was too strict, his ways too serious, his home too solemn. This is not life I will not abide here, but I will use my personal liberty , and be a man.. What a weakling is he who cannot endure or enjoy the will of him whose chief concern is about the welfare of his son. God pity the man who spurns his father's love, turns his back upon home, and goes into the far country. He may go only around the -corner, but away from the father's love and care Is indeed the far country. Knowing the end of that man, if he persists in his wilful waywardness and wickedness, it is easv to write his erjitanh: "He went out. and lt a n!trrit " and for such one is (jjg blackness of dark- ness forever. Beware of the first wil ful rejection of your father, and the first step away from home. The news from the far country may be al luring, but you are on the down-grade. Reflection. The fascination of the far coun try faded away upon close contact with it; the music which charmed the youth soon turned into discord; the mirage which lured him from home disappears and leaves only the desert; for this prosperous young man, with many friends while he had money, but now bankrupt and bereft, there is not even the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. "And when he had spent all. there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be In want. And he would fain have filled hia belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him." "I perish with hunger." "And no man gave unto him;" he was denied the very husks that the swine did eat. Could any Jew come to greater degradation than feeding swine? And then find .no profit, not even support, in his service. Does not Bin pay? Is there pleasure lu "life?" May we not sow wild oats? .Yes, sin pays but in its own coin: the wages of sin is death. Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. -.. Resolution. Thank God there is a way back home! ... " a. In the heart. "I will arise and go." Dissatisfied, disappointed, de spairing, near to death, perhaps, the viBion glorious of what he has missed by his own wilful rejection now fills his mind and-stirs his heart. Even servants in the father's house have more than I have, and I perish with hunger. These dead sea apples were beautiful to the eye but ashes to the taste. "I will arise and go, 'and say." But, further, resolution also. b. In the habit: "And he arose and came." Resolution of heart ia not enough. Many a prodigal has been sorry for his sinful condition, but has died amid his sinful surroundings. You may be sorry when wealth and health and hope are gone and still die In that far country. "I will arise and go. . . and he arose and came." That was his salvation from the human standpoint; and lt will be yours. .. . .- Reception.. "When he was yet a great way off, his father saw him." You have never been as homesick aa the father has been son-sick. And now, at last we see the wistful look upon the face, we can hear the welcome loving in the voice, we can see the tear In the eyes, we can feerthe very throbbing of the-heart of God. Dear friend, this Is not a story to be told; it la an experience of the soul to be realized by every one who comes to" God through faith In Jesus Christ.- You may " have been wilful, wasteful and wretched ; - but God loves you ; he woos you by the Holy Spirit; he calls yon In tender tones that sound out above the din of the far country fc-"Oh, prodigal child, come home." Come now. and find the reality and the in comparable bliss of the fatneri. wel come, the kiss, the robe, the ring, the shoes, the feast.

Director of Evening" Department, The Moody Bible Institute, Chicago.) , LESSON FOR AUGUST 23 Xv JHE WEDDING FEAST. - - LESSOR TEXT MattT2:l-M. GOLDEN TEXT "O Jerusalem, Jeru salem, that killcth the prophets, and ston est them that are sent unto her bow often would I have gathered thy children to gether, even .as a hen gathereth her own brood under wings, and ye would not." Luao 13:34 R. V. To catch the full significance of this parable which is alone recorded by Matthew we need to be more or less familiar with the Jewish pride of race and their feeling of superiority over all "heathen" or outsiders, and the his tory of their treatment of God's rep resentatives, the prophets. Following upon the parable referred to in our last lesson the Pharisees per ceived that Jesus spake of them and they sought to arrest him (ch. 21:46). In this lesson the figure of the king dom is changed from a vineyard to a feast. Relation to Hla People. I. The King's Invitation Rejected, vv. 1-7. The change of figure just re ferred to suggests not alone an occa sion ot festal joy (Luke 14:16), but also Christ s relation to hia people, which is that of a husband to his wife (he being the son referred to, see I Cor. 11:12; Eph. 5:24-32; John 3:29). These Jewish leaders, and their nation were first to be Invited to the mar riage. This had been done by the prophets of old and later by John the Baptizer. Under this figure of a mar riage our Lord speaks of three differ ent Invitations. The first one was re. celved with indifference, but Indiffer ence never removes responsibility. The second Invitation ws received with hostility. Nothing more fully reveals the foolishness and hardness of the human heart than the way in which men treat the gracious invita tions of God's love. Wonderful indeed is the forbearance of God. The sin of rejecting the cross, God's offer of grace, is immeasurably greater than that Incurred by those Jews who rejected the "Man of Galilee-Question of Worthiness. II. The King's Invitation Accepted, w. 8-10. Those invited had judged themselves "not worthy. Now go to the parting of the ways where people congregate and "gather them in." Our worthiness is in that we accept, and it we reject we are "not worthy." This command to go outside was a prophecy of the time when the Gentiles should likewise be "partakers of grace." " Those who finally accepted the king's invitation were both good and bad (v. 10), but the act of acceptance was not an assurance of position aa we can see from the last part of the parabW. It -ft sad to think of the many servants of the king who have neg lected his command thus to go forth and recruit the banquet feast. Final ly (t. 10) we read that "the wedding was filled." Heaven will not be an empty place, Rev. 7:9-14. III. The Unprepared Guest, w. 11-14. Every guest was scrutinized by the king. It was a strange sight to see one who had neglected to avail him self of the garment freely provided in which to appear on such an occasion. This robe is symbolical of the robe of righteousness with which God will clothe all who accept his invitation, Isa. 61:10; Rev. 19:7, 8; Eph. 4:24; Rom. 13:14. For" this man to present himself clothed in his own garment was to insult the king, so our' own righteousness is as "filthy rags" in his sight, Isa. 64:6; Phil. 3:9 R. V. When questioned about this act of insolence the guest was "speechless.", So like wise will all unbelievers stand one day before the great king. - The -Teaching of.' this parable em phasizes our privileges in the king dom of God. A full realization of that kingdom means joy, gladness and per fect satisfaction. On a previous occa sion Jesus gave up the parable of the Great Supper which so much resem bles this. Both of these parables have to do with the attitude of men to the Gospel Invitation. There is the further emphasis upon the nature of the an swer of men to this invitation. The first ia that of men who are blind to the gloryand beauty of that which is offered to them, though their refusal was not final. Men, still blind, treat this Invitation contemptuously and turn to their own interests, seeking satisfaction, while others shamefully treat the king's messengers. This treatment Is followed by swift judg- ment. Once more the invitation and and a mixed company- are gathered, some with worthy and some with un worthy motives. The Master's final words (v. 14) em phasize service and responsibility. The call was an open, general univer sal one. Those chosen were not only those who came but those who accept ed the conditions laid down. The in different, or hostile, and those who ac cepted unworthily were rejected. The Golden Text reveals the heart of the Lord. He deals in sure judg ment; still his purpose and desire is to protect and to gather the children safe from all harm. "The doom of the city 'was pronounced upon it as the result of its refusal to accept this hla purpose. - , - REVELATION WAS TOO MUCH Picture of "Hollering Jones" at Fa vorite Diversion Caused Him to Reform. A well-known illustrator, who makes interesting western pictures, once made the acquaintance of a noisy but good-humored cowboy who rejoiced in the appellation of "Hollering Jones." In physical appearance this man was typical of his kind, and the artist made several studies " of him, both in re pose and in. hia favorite diversion of "hollering." Some of the studies were sold by the artist to an eastern "maga zine. They showed Jones in his most violent state. A year later the artist again visited the region. - He was soon approached by Mr. Jones himself, bearing one of the pictures, which he had torn from the magazine in which it was printed. Pointing to it, he asked : "Is that me? "Well, replied the artist, evasively, "I got the general Idea -from you, of course, but " - "Oh, I ain't takin' no offense," Jones made haste to say. "It'B all right; only if it's me, say so." "If yon put It to me that way," said the artist, "I can only reply that it is a fairly good portrait of you." "The men here on the ranch agree with you. So I look like that when I holler, do I?" vT think you do." "In that case," said Hollering Jones, all I've got to say is that Hollering Jones has hollered his last holler. Hereafter, when I celebrates, I does so with a tin horn. In my own opin ion, no man has a right to look like Lthat not round white folks, anyhow. Youth's Companion. No Airs About Her.' . "Airs!" exclaimed the proud mother. and shook her head vigorously. "My Elsie, for all her learning, hasn't any more airs, so to speak, than her poor old dad." "Then she won't turn up her nose at her old friends?" queried the visitor. "La, no!" - "How refreshing! Most girls who go through college nowadays will hardly look at you after they're graduated." "Well, they ain't like my Elsie, that's all I can say," retorted Elsie's ma- She's become a carnivorous reader, of course, and she frequently importunes music. But stuck up my Elsie? Not a bit. She's unanimous to everybody, has a most infantile vocabulary, and, what's - more, never keeps a caller waiting while she dresses up. No, she just runs down, nom de plume, as she is." Perfectly Natural. As Herbert Cory tells it, he went to a dinner once where Andrew Carnegie was a guest. "After the eating was over and the speechmaking had started," said Corey, "Mr. Carnegie reached in, his pocket for something and pulled out a handful of small change. A dime got away from him and fell on the floor, and at the first chance Mr. Carnegie got down under the table and looked for it." "Did he find it?" asked one of the audience to whom Corey was narrat ing the incident. "Did he find it?" echoed Corey. "He found 15 cents!" Saturday Evening Post. Right Name for Them.
