Wben a Man Marries.
The International Sunday School Les
son for March 23 Is "Isaac and Ke
bekah," Gen. 24.
When the Bagdad railway, which is
bow -building, has got all the way to
Babylon, we may be sure that passen
gers from Europe will show more in
terest in the stop at Haran and Re
bekah's Well, which is there, than in
many of the ruined cities of antiquity
passed on the way. About Rebekah's
Well lingers the spirit of the eternal
romance. It has a touch of the hu
man that means more to people than
the vast movements of ancient em
pires. The guide-books will give more
apace to Rebekah's Well than to the
tomb of Sennacherib. For the beauti
ful idyl of Rebekah is dear to the
heart of all who read.
This twenty-fourth chapter of Gen
esis, which is one of the most intrin
sically beautiful and interesting stories
in the Bible, does not deal with fable
or fiction. Every line of it attests its
human reality. In some form or oth
er it is being lived over again tn every
part of the world. Older than the
Well which the traveler through Meso
potamia still may see, is the sentiment
which it represents: the quest of a
life for its complement.
Since the race began, Rebekahs
have been going to wells, and about
the other humdrum daily tasks,
dreaming beautiful dreams of a pos
sible lover from out of the west. There
i a bit of moral in passing in the fact
that it was while about. her day's du
ties, and not when arrayed in festal
finery or displaying "company man
ners." that Rebekah commended her
self to the representative of Isaac,
seeking a wife. Nobody knows around
what corner fate awaits. At the most
unexpected time and place there may
be the meeting which determines all
of one's future.
How One Woman Got a Husband.
The best things in life come by in
direction. The person who goes moon
ing through the days, longing for a
lover, is likely to fail of the search
and to become a pitiable, and silly
creature. They who go straight on in
life's highway, busy about the usul
duties, taking time for the great
dreams, find that life's richest bless
ings are met by the way. Neither
happiness nor husbands come for the
(seeking. Rebekah, like uncounted
millions of young women before and
since, was doing her share of the fam
ily work by filling the water jars at
the village well.
How manv times I have seen the
young women of Mesopotamia. and
'other parts of the Near East, on this
, ... ; i : .... -well, chatting

Bociablv as they travelled, or as they
gathered waiting one another's turn.
It is no light task, this carrying of
a huge water jar on the head or
shoulder. The eastern woman is train
ed to bear burdens.
Rebekah went blithely of an even
ing to the well outside Haran. The
dav did not seem different from other
dais. She little dreamed, when she
put the emptv water jar on her head,
that destiny was sitting on the well
curb waiting for her. The wayfarer
who wanted drink was not different
from other travellers whom she had
often obligingly served. She com
mended herself to Eleizer. who had
been commissioned to find a .wife for
Isaac, because of her quick helpful
nes and wholesome good nature. He
saw that this ready and efficient wo
man was the verv wife for his master.
Going WIfe-Htinting.
Let us not cry shame upon Isaac
that he did not do his own wooing.
Aside from the fact that he was not
that sort of man, being of a temper
that lets other people do for him, it
was the usage of the land and the
time a usage which still persists in
the same region for marriages to be
arranged by intermediaries. The
shadchans" of the East side of New
York are still engaged in the same
business. The wife for Isaac was of
his father's providing. We may be
sure that he would accept whatever
was given to him, for he was a nega
tive character, whom somebody has
called a "a valley between two hills,"
a mere link between Abraham and
When Abraham was dying he. com

He would not thwart the plans of
God by mixing the blood of the chosen
people with the heathen of Canaan.

back to the southland. She had the
quality of decision which many a man
since has wished for her sisters. She
knew her mind; she knew her hours;
she had the courage to turn her back
on the past, for the mysterious future
to which she had heard the call.
Religion and Eugenics.
Some old fogies used to wail a great
deal in public about the modern
young people's societies, because they
said they were just "matchmaking or
ganizations." They complained that
young men and young women met
each other in Christian Endeavor and
marriages resulted. As if there were
any better or nobler way to meet a
sharer of one's whole life, than in the
work of the church and in allegiance
to God! The big problem of eugen
ics which is looming large upon the
social horizon, will scarcely be solved
in the legal and scientific way that
some scientists plan. The normal, un
artificial form of eugenics is for pure
men and pure women, whose lives are
given in service' to God, to find each
other and to pledge their mutual faith
within the comprehensive Christian
The two most important hours in a
person's life are his first conscious
meeting with God in personal relation
shio and his first conscious meeting
with the life that is to be his soul's
comrade through the rest of time.
Even- as Eleizer prayed for the success
oi nis matrimonial mission, so young
men and young women should pray
for the guidance-of God in this great
est choice upon which the future of
the nation and the world depends.
Any light and frivolous and uncon
sidered notion' of marriage is not only
contrary to a realization of one's obli
gations to the world, but also con
trary to the spirit of the Scriptures.
God planned from the beginning that
man and woman should become one
in His fear and in the service of man
kind. It is not unreasonable to be
lieve that they who have wiTfuily re
jected marriage will be held account
able in God's time of reckoning. There
are thousands of men and women
who. from shortsightedness, cow
ardice or selfishness, have turned their
backs upon the wedded life. In so
doing they have repudiated God's pro
gram. The world progresses according to
the old Persian legend of the juftak.
This is a bird with one wing, but the
male has a wing on one side and a
hook on the ottjer; and the female
has a wing on the opposite side, and a
ring to match the hook; and when the
two were linked together they could
fly, and only then.
The Bride's Homecoming.
This old story is suggestive of hu
man nature. Isaac was a quiet, stay-at-home,
negative character, fond of
meauaung in the garden in the cool
of the evening. He could easily be
imposed upon. He dug wells and
other people crowded him away from
them. Even Rebekah. when he grew
old, deceived him in the matter of the
inheritance for her favorite son, Jacob,
she molded Isaac to her purposes. i
We may not be hard on Rebekah, j
as we see her journeying with caravan i
of ten camels, led by Eleizer, and hav- !
"B oniy ner nurse with her as a re
minder of her old home. She was a
helpmeet for Isaac. The promised
line might have suffered shipwreck
had it not been for her positive char
acter, she made up, like a good wife,
what Isaac lacked. If she had more
than her share of aggressiveness, it
was because he had less than the
portion that was expected of a man.
The two together, complementing each
other, carried out God's idea for so
ciety. Every marriage is a matter of grav
est interest to the world, for it is at
the marriage altar that the future of
the race is determined. That is why
at every wedding, there should be
three parties, the man, the woman,
and God.
A Wife or a Mission?
Knowing somewhat of human na
ture, and feminine nature at that, the
canny servant Eleizer raised a ques
tion with his dying master. What if
none of the daughters of Abraham's
kindred up in Mesopotamia, hhuuiu
be willing to make the long journey
south to the land of promise? Should .
Isaac return to Mesopouiinia: me
answer was clear; the family mission
came before the wife. Isaac's work
in the world was to carry out the
covenant of his father with Jehovah,
and to possess the land of promise.
If the wife would not share that lot
with him, then she should not be his
wife. The divine call and commis
sion take precedence of all human re
lationships. The problem is an ever-recurring
one. What if a woman will not
marry a man because she has decid
ed not to be a minister's wife, or not
to go to the foreign mission field?
There is but one course open. It is
as clear as Scripture. She may stay
behind, but the man must go. No
woman is fit to be wife who will not
share her husband's life, going
wherever his call leads him.
In a remote village along the In
land Sea of Japan, I one time ran
across one of the common tragedies:
The man was in the employ of a
great American corporation. He had
been promoted to a position of re
sponsibility. His feet were on the
ladder and mounting upward. But
his wife petulantly and childishly
said that she would not live in Japan.
Either the home had to be wrecked
or the man's future had to be sacri
ficed, all for a woman's whim.
One proof of Rebekah's foreordi
nation to be the wife of Isaac was her
prompt readiness to go with the mes
ajastfers. without a day's delay, straight
The Life Triumphant.
Terse Comments for March 23, "Vital
Living: The Lesson of Easter." II
Cor. 4:8-18.
Yesterday our friend was here; to
day he is not here. Where is he now
The mystery of death has intervened.
Faith assures us that all is well with
him: but still a host of unanswered
questions throng us. Is he still him
self? How conscious is he now of this
world and of us who are left behind?
Has his personality passed over the
great gulf with him? Shall we again

and unsolved by reason. The only
snail ui ugnt mat snmes upon the im
mortality of the soul streams from
the open grave of the risen Christ.
Were it not for the light of His resur
rection, all would be dark.
The full truth of the life beyond
the grave is known only to those who
have passed through the straight gate
called death. We dare not lend our
selves to idle speculation concerning
it. But this we know, that life here
and now may be enriched and en
larged and made glorious by the
power of the risen Christ. His resur
rection was not merely for use in
eternity. The triumphant experience
of the resurrection life .was meant for
every one who could say, with the
apostle, "I have been crucified with
Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not
I. but Christ liveth in me; and that
life which I now live in the flesh I
live by the faith of the Son of God,
who loved me, and gave himself for
They who live as if life were a
noble, conquering, joyous possession
are a constant Easter message to an
ever-widening circle.
We call death the great divider,
whereas, really and finally, it is the
great uniter. All love knit souls,
severed here on earth, are at last
brought together in the life to which
death is but the portal. Florence
Earle Coates beautifully expresses
the thought:
"Reproach not Death, nor charge to
him. in wonder,
' The lives that he doth separate
But think how many hearts that
ache, asunder.
Death pitying Death doth Join
and reconcile!"
The proof that a ferson is saved
is less his getting to heaven for we
who remain on earth can know noth
ing about that than his living an
emancipated life amid his present
circumstances. I have seen folks,
church members at that, who may
get to heaven, but who have not been
1 saved for this world of today. Their
souls are starved and joyless; they
are - slaves to petty cares ; their eyes
are never lifted up to the heavenlies;
they know nothing of the hilarity of
life, full, bubbling and overflowing,
such as is the sure portion of those
whom Christ has delivered from
bondage. If religion is anything at
all vital it is a pret-ent experience.
The great argument for full and
abundant life is not that death draws
on apace, but that Christ lives and
shares his conquering life with his
friends. A happy, helpful, holy life
is the best testimony that a Chris
tian can bear to his Master.
Arise. O. Soul, this Easter Day!
The Lord is risen!
Forget the tomb of yesterday;
The Lord is risen!
And thou from bondage art set free.
Thou sharest in his victory,
The life eternal is for thee.
The Lord is risen!
' Sarah Louise Arnold.
Professor William James did the
world great service by his essay
wherein he showed, by the analogy of
the 'runner's power to get his "second
wind," that every one of us has unsus
pected reserves of life which ordinarily
are unused. His summons was to
larger and more vital living: to the
life more abundant, physical, mental,,
social ami spiritual. Science echoes the
message of the Master, "I am come that
ye may have life, and that ye may
have, it more abundantly."
They multiply life who live in other
lives. The art of sympathy and co
operation. Of giving self to others and
sharing others' selves, is Christ's own
secret of vital living.

will not learn

Bishop W. C. Doane, In The Outlook
When we live for the same things for
which Christ lived we are sharers of
His largeness of life.
The yardstick for the measuring of
a vital life is not in the world's hands.
The best lives are often the obscurest:
the "life hid with Christ in God." Pub
licity has its uses, but it never has
been, and never can be, a true measure
of the value of a life. Moreover, it
carries ever the insidious temptation to
make the plaudits of men, rather than
the approval of God, the test of success.
The apostolic ambition was to be "well
pleasing unto Him." The life that
satisfies God needs no other reward.
Here is a grat mystery. The theo
logians have never been able to ex
pound it, but myriads of. unlettered
saints have experienced it: namely,
that newness of life is "in Christ,"
lived by his imparted power. "Vic
tory over the soul's downward drift,
over innate littleness and sordidness,
over earth's tug and pull, are some
vrn, mvsterinuslv elven to those whose
lives are in the keeping of the risen
Christ. Some anonymous lines in "As

thought: -"Up

Jesus, I rise with Thee. -Up

God in commanding the sacrifice of

Father sent the Holy Spirit to gather

As Abraham did not take a wife for
Christiandom, on such a point as this,
are likely to be right. This sacred
and hallowed place is now In the pos
session of the Mohammedans.
Q. Who is the first person men
tioned in the Bible as wearing a ring?
Answer. In ancient times it was
the custom to indicate a special and
marked degree of favor by placing- a
ring upon the finger of the one to
ward whom the esteem and honor was
manifested. When the ring contained
a signet, then it became a mark or
symbol of authority. Thus we read
of Joseph being honored by Pharaoh,
king of Egypt, after he had inter
preted the king's dream: "And the
thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh,
his son from amongst the heathen, so i and in the eyes of all his servants.
God did not select the Bride of Christ
! from among the heathen. As Eliezer
! went to Abraham's relatives, believers
in God, so the Holy Spirit was sent
only to believers, to select from these
the Church.
The Bride class originally was Jew
ish. The Jews were in fellowship with
God under their Law Covenant, and
to them alone the Holy Spirit went.
Later, the Gentiles were permitted to
hettr the Gospel, in order that such as
responded might join the Bride class
when they fully consecrated them
selves to God.
Rebecca at the Well.
Eliezer, loyal to his commission,
sought earnestly the proper person,
that Isaac might have a suitable help
mate. When he came to the city of
Nahor, he found Nahor's granddaugh
ter Rebecca at the well, caring for the
sheep. Those called to joint-heirship
with Christ are usually found giving
God's people refreshment from the Bi
ble and its "water of life."
First Rebecca was tested as to will
ingness to give the water. Here she
manifested a spirit of. service, indic
ative of the meekness and humility
necessary for the Bride of Christ.
Then Eliezer gave her jewels, symbolic
of spiritual blessings. Eliezer was re
ceived into the house. Rebecca's
friends, representing the Household of
Faith, rejoiceH with her.
Eliezer then explained that Abraham
was very rich, that Isaac was his heir,
and that he himself had come 'to find
a bride for his master's son. He be
lieved Rebecca to be the Lord's choice
for Isaac. Rebecca was then asked
whether she would go with Eliezer.
Her prompt answer was, "I will go."
It meant something for Rebecca to
leave her father's house and all with
which she was familiar; and so it
means considerable for those who ac
cept the call to become the Bride of
Christ. Only whole-hearted love for the
And Pharaoh said unto his servants,
Can we find such an one as this (verse
33), a man in whom is the spirit of
God? And Pharaoh said unto Joseph,

my house, and according unto thy
word shall all my people be ruled:
only in the throne will I be greater
than thou. And Pharaoh said unto
Joseph, See, I have set thee over all
the land, of Egypt. And Pharaoh took
off his ring from his hand and put it
upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him
in vestures of fine linen, and put a
gold chain about his neck." Genesis
Q. What man was so shocked by
the wrong doing of others that he
plucked out his hair? (Esau.)
Answer. The Jewish people had
been in captivity to, Babylon for the
space of seventy years, at the end of
which time, in the first year of Cyrus,
a proclamation had gone' forth to the
effect that all of the Jews who desired
to return to their own land were at
liberty to do so. Acting upon this
proclamation, there were 42,360
Israelites who returned to the land of
Palestine. Among these was Ezra,
the favorite Scribe and Priest, who
accomplished the work, of reorganiza-j
tion ofter the people had become set
tled in the land. When he came to the
work of reorganizing the priesthood
he found that the members of the
Levitical or priestly tribe had inter
married with the peoples of the sur
rounding countries, a thing which had
been expressly prohibited in the law
which Moses had given to them. Upon
hearing this, Ezra was overcome with
grief as he himself said, "And when I
heard this thing, I rent my garment
and my mantle, and plucked off the
hair of my bead and of my beard, and
sat down astonished." rEzra 9:3. The

More Jewels for Rebecca.
Then Eliezer gave Rebecca more jew
els. So the Bride class receive an early
and a later blessing. The graces of the
Holy Spirit faith, fortitude, knowledge,
hope, joy. love enhance their beauty
of character.
Finally the camels brought Rebecca
to her journey's end. The Bride class
leave their father Adam's house after
they accept the invitation to go to
Christ. Through trials and difficulties,
they travel down the centuries of this
Gospel Age. The camels which bore
Rebecca to Isaac's home-well represent
the Holy Scriptures, by which the faith
ful are borne along on their journey.
As Eliezer brought Rebecca safe to
the end of their journey to Isaac at
Lahai-roi, so the Holy Spirit will guide
the Church to the presence, parousia,
of Christ. Following the custom of the
time, Rebecca put on her veil and
alighted from the camel to meet Isaac.
So the Scriptures tell us that the
Church must pass beyond the Veil be
fore she will be fully received by the
antitypical Isaac.
Rebecca's maidens typify the conse
crated class now following the Bride
class, but not fully living up to their
privileges. The blessing pronounced up
on Rebecca, "Be thou the mother of
thousands of millions," represents the
future of the Church. For as the Re
deemer will, during His Millennial
reign, become the Father, or Life-giver,
to thousands with His own precious
blood, so the Church will become the
mother, or caretaker, to assist them to
Q. What people borrowed garments
of their enemies? (Manetho.)
Answer The children of Israel had
dwelt in the Land of Egypt for 216
years, and during a large part of this
time had been in a condition of serf
dom. The Egyptians had placed heavy
b urdens upon them, and caused them
all sorts and conditions of hardships
and sufferings. The wealth of Egypt
had been created almost wholly by the
Israelites, and when the time came
when they, in the Lord's providence,
were leaving the land of Egypt to
journey toward a land which the Lord
had promised to give them, they "bor
rowed" (requested) of the Egyptians
gold, and silver, and raiment. The ;
Egyptians complied with the request.
The most of these precious materials i
were afterwards used in the construe- j

of the Gentiles, and by right it be

be given to them. The pawn-shops,

What would we do in this world of ours,
Were it not for the dreams ahead?
For thorns are mixed with the blooming
No matter which path we tread.
And each of us has his golden goal.
Stretching far into the years;
And ever he climbs with a hopeful soul,
With alternate smiles and tears.
That dream ahead is what holds him up
Trough storms of a ceaseless fight;
When his lips are pressed to the worm
wood's cup,
And clouds shut out the light.
To some it's a dream of high estate.
To some it's a dream of wealth;
To some it's a dream of a truce with
In a constant search for health.
To some it's a dream of home and wife.
To some it's a crown above:
The dreams ahead are what makes each
The dreams and faith and love! I
