l.Mati. xi.v, .'!0; xx, 1 HJ.i
The topic nnltcrsal for Hia various ile
nvminatlonal voung people's societies Sut.
day .-veiling Is, "How Cod Pjya Men."
four.de.1 specially on the .arablu of tho
'VIneaid Ijliorer-." as records In Matt,
xx. 1 lu The partb-ulir e Ireumstances
giving ns to this par.ibiu is recorded in
thr; clo-lng verses of the preceding chap
ter, where Pe-ier asks a peeullurlv srmj.h
qtiesrion. and where the Mnier answers In
an exreejingiy ;Kj:ntel manner. The note
of warning. huwevr. Is loui-l In tho clos
ing ep. where it Is said: "Hut many that
are ilrst .-hall be I.it. ,-md the last nrst."
First in pe-int .f pritilege. Uryl la tlmo of
service, and Ilrst in bearing tho burden and
he.ii e-f tho daj.
This statement, therefore, opened the wav
for the parable, which follow In the next
chapter, and which is de-igtied to illustrato
the sovereignty of God In his grnclous
dealings with men. Th danger In the tlmq
of Christ was to iegiliz- the gospel, put
ting men under the law. ralhi r lh.ui un
der grace, and tills tindi-v 'till fxl-t-s. In
other wiinl. that th" problem of the sol
vation of men and their vuliw-qwent Ciirl
tlan lire Is not to be worked out oi Hit
basis of eniplt-irr and employe, but ralh r
on the wid-r ImsIs of lewards bised on tho
e-xercise tif soA-erelgii grace-.
With this thought In view, tho parable
becomes lnttnr ty interesting and Instruc
tive. Christ Sas the klnprlntn e.f iisnv-n
Is like in a householder, who went out at
different hours of the day to hlro laborers
loi his Mlicjard. With trios- eniplove-d
early In the morning, he definitely agri-ed
to pay il penny, cr itom.ui dtnarlu.-i, a day.
Hut to those employed at tho third, tlxth.
ninth and leventh hours, no delinlte prom
ise was mado other than "whatsoever Is
right, that shall ye receive." it Is Impor
tant to note htro that evurv ct thus far
was entirely voluntary, bota on tho part
of the emplojer and employe. Tims far all
is clear, and the freedom of Jho gospel,
lioth In lt-s acceptance and promise of tun
able reward. Is strikingly i-e-t forth.
Uut the difficult part of the parable1 comes
in In thp settlement at the .-lore of Ihe dty.
Purposely, the lord or the vineyard begins
his settlement with thoso employed, near
tho close of the dny: those employed
last. No surprise was exhibited liv these
Ht the amount re-eiv-d. each accepting the
penny as a Just comiiensatlon for scrvlrej
rendered. In accordance with the general
promise made. Hut those first employed,
who had wrought from morning till night,
were sorely disappointed mid Indignant to
receive likewise a penny. So they murmured
against the good man of the house and
nad: "These last, have wrought but one
hour, and thou hast made them equal to us
which have borno the burden and heat of
Now note eirefully tho answer given:
"Friend. I do thee no wrong; didst thou not
agree with me for n x-nny? Takn that
thine Is and go thy wa ; I will give unto
this last, even as unto thee. Is It not law
ful for me to do what I will with my own?
Is thine eve evil bee.Ltise I am pfmiir- TVi.
it Is that Christ adds the lesson, "So. the l
iat s-oaii or- iirsi nroi tne nrst lasu in otner
TOrds, the lord of the vineyard cave these
ilrst to understand he had fulfilled his con
tract with them to the letter, and If ho
chose to do otherwise with the last employed
It was strictly none of their business.
The parable, therefore, has a twofold ap
plication. So far as the disciples were con
cerned, they were given to und -rstand that
their reward In the kingdom of heaven, here
nnd here-after, would not necessarily Iks
bised upon the leiiKth or even the amount
of service rendered, but In accordance with j
nl.rOV JUPIIVU M4H4 fVIVUKII h-KV- illill
possibly In the wind up of affairs, somo of
ihem who nspired to even greater reward
than wn promised would be disappointed.
And the second application is to those
who are enlltcd in the service of the Master
to-day. and who may be entemlning a
wrong Idea as to thi reward prnmNod. and
who may 1-e greatly overestimating tho
valu? of their se-rvice.s Ktcrnal life Is prom,
bed to all. but It may mean vastly more to
some than to others Thoso who have been
rescued late In life from the deep pit of
sin. or resctn-d as brands from the burn
ing, will, doubtless, mote highly value this
reward than those who have ncter known
the belt in sin. It Is rnouah to know that
the Master will deal Justly and crac!ou;ly

Fe-deinl Hiiilding Pavements n.ive
"ot Heen ('leaned.
It was noticeable yesterday that whll
th- pavement in front cf all business
houses and. in fact, many of the resi
dences in the city were scraped clean of
sr.ow and ice. no one ventured to touch
the accumulate1 snow and ice cm the pave
ment surrounding the Fe-deral building.
While the thousands who visited the build
ing during the daj fou-id other pavements
In th- downtown district reasonably clean,
pothing of the kind was visible about
In. !.- Sam's property, it is pre-umed that
the lew and snow will be allowed to re
main tiround this building until the weather
becomes warm enough to melt the same.
As everybody knows, the building Is
gloomy on the Inside, and new nature has
added to the handiwork of man in produ
cing more unpleasant conditions. Even if
the vveather continues warm enough during
the .'ay to nitlt the snow and ice. It will
be- sloppy around the Pest Oillce for several
days to come Those who could do so yes-tei.iav-
av.ild-d the pavement surrounding
Ihe bis building on It four side, but ther
were many thousands whose business
carried them there.
The. logic cf those responsible for tho
condition of the Federal building seems to
be founded on that of the Arkansaw
rraveler man in regard to shingling hl.s
house. When the weather was good there
"3s .r. ",""lly for having the root
hli.-sled, and when It wa raining he didn't
like to perform such work, ir it hadn't
been ror the- recent now and slett storm
there wouldn't be any snow and sleet on
the pavemeui surrounding the building.
Those- responsible for th- building do not
control the weather, hence they are not
to i. held to account for the snow and
sleet on the pavement.

Frcm talking with the Kentucky Demo

that there is little doubt that those rc
