Terse Comments On the Uniform Prayer Meeting Topic of the Young People's Societies—Chris tian Endeavor, etc.—For April 3C: “Using Sunday for This World and .the Next.”— lea. 58:1-14. By WILLIAM T. ELLIS. The Lord's Day, lik** the Jewish Sabbath, is a memorial day. It is a reminder of divine thing*: 1‘ poinis above, like the church spires. Taking man from the grind of six days' labor, it tails him aside to worship the HJa»n Christ and the father who set apart one day as an occasion to be remembered in His honor. “The Sabbath was made for man.” declared Jesus —for the best that is in man. and not for the worst. They who wonid make the Lord's Day men ly an occasion for the indulgence of mans lower na ture rather than for the cultivation of his higher spiritual self, can get little support from the example and teaching of Jesus. • * • Much of the perplexity which many persons feel over the observ ance of the Lord's Day arises from confounding It with the Jewish Sab bath. or worse, with the Sabbath of the Scotch and English Puritans. The extra-legalists among the old Jews read into the beneficent Sab bath observance a matter of minute regulations. These burdens, too grievous to be borne, Jesua summar ily threw aside. Therefore He was regarded as a Sabbath-breaker; and it is curious that whenever Jesus appears in connection with the Sab bath question, it is usually as a violator of the existing laws. Ha taught a liberal view of the day. His conduct and words stressed the truth that the letter kllleth. The Sabbath was never meant to be a burden to man; much less the lord's Day which has succeeded It. • • « The lord's Day is to be kept in the Lord's Way. * • * Probably Pentecost fell on the firs* day of the week. Certainly the Spirit-controlled church early came to set aside this day as the lord’s Day to be* kept hr sacredly as the Sabbath had been kept by the Jews. e e e One great hymn or poem commit ted to memory each Sunday would store the mind with priceless treas ures, and tinge all of one’s ambi tion*. • e e Like a mountain peak, the Sab bath Is a place of outlook. It Is an opportunity for enlarging the soul’e horlson. The educational uses of the day are enhanced by every thought given to the distant realms where Sabbath Is kept by brethren of many colors, climes and condi tions. • • • A different day l.< desirable.

May we never outgrow “Sunday clothes” and the other Utile sign* which mark this a day set- apart. A “Sunday treat” for the children is the usage of many families. Even the oft-de bated “Sunday dinner,” which gath er* the whole family about the board foe a fe*tal meal, serves a Sabbath office, as the old Jews rec ognized. Reading should be dif ferent, and music and exercise. Whatever will signalise this a* a day set apart for singular and sa cred purposes is to be cultivated assiduously. • • * That Sabbath is best kept on which we gain new' thoughts about God. As we grow in the knowledge of the Lord we grow in grace. * • • The quiet and rest and solemnity of Sunday should lift our hearts nearer to heaven, and make more real and close to us the endleas Sabbath In the new home. This is one of the good things that each returning rest-day should bring ua —a clearer understanding of, and greater love for. the heavenly life and the heavenly world. » • • A well-spenl Sunday Is one that we have helped make profitable for somebody else. • • • “This Is the day of rest; Our failing strength renew; On weary brain and troubled breast. Send Thou Thy freshening dew.” ■ 1 ■ —■' ■— The Zeta Psl Fraternity of Amer ica, one of the oldest college fra ternities In the country, will meet In annual national convention today In Philadelphia. ikSKi worn***!*" o*irJ j **• f ■ e * n,urr /ID Ask For and Get yglUong.
