INTRODUCTION-We are still engaged
with the Perean ministry of Jesus. The
time is the late autumn of the year twen
tyTnlne. six months prior to the cruci
fixion. Between the events of last lesson
and those of tho present a few days only
elapsed, occupied chiefly In teaching. Hav
ing completed the parable of the supper,
Jesus left the House of the Pharisee, fol
lowed by a great multitude. To them he
set forth the requirements of dlscipleshlp,
showing that only by great earnestness
might one succeed. This address attract
ed the publicans and sinners, who gath
ered to hear, and the Pharisees and scribes
murmured because Jesus associated with
them. (Luke, xv, 12.) To Justify his
course, Jesus delivered four parables the.
lost sheep, tho lost piece of silver, the
Prodigal son. and the unjust steward. In
all these he set forth fundamental prin
ciples which are to be found more or less
dominant in human nature, and applied
them to his own system of doctrine. The
third of these parables now to be studied
is deemed by scholars to be the crown and
pearl of all the parables. In all the cen
turies it has yielded material tor the
preacher, tho essayist and the artist, and
its details have awakened the tenderest
emotions of the heart. We shall endeavor
first to make the story vivid, and then to
dr.iw Instructions therefrom.
PORTION The .parable opens with a
family scene, sketched in a single sen
tence, -a certain man naa two sons.
Happy and honored was he in the estima
tion of friends! (Gen. xlviii. 9.) Americans
build estates; the Hebrews like all other
Orlenctalists. sought to raise families. If
this man can keep his sons, their wives
and children, he may die among them, a
rich patriarch. (Gen. xlix. L) But a
change came. The younger son grew
weary of home. His discontent may have
been caused by some disagreeable circum
stance. The relations of the brothers, bo
cause of the selfishness of the older (verse
2S). as afterwards displayed, may have been
unpleasant. The father may have been
arbitrary or lenient, so that the family
government failed to meet the needs of an
earnest vouth. It is no easy matter to
adjust the parts of a household to each
other. (Gen. xxvii. 4L) Whatever may
have been the -cause, the young man was
in a bad state of mind. He went to his
father, demanding a division of property,
an act of very great Impropriety. lie
might have suggested or requested, but
otherwise he could present no claim. The
father compiled, giving to the sons their
respective portions. Under the law of
Moses, that meant two-thirds to the older
and one-third to the younger. (Deut. xxl.
1517.) But there was this difference, that
the latter obtained his portion immediate
ly, wnne tno otner remained witn ais
WASTING Gathering all together, per
haps converting It into money, the younger
son went into a far country. Soon ho
found himself under influences that led to
ruin. There was an elation of spirit, re
sulting from the consideration that he wai
his own master, freed from the dlsclpllnt
of home, possessed of ample means to
supply his necessities. Joined to this was
that strange buoyancy, never experienced
before, caused by the release from daily
routine duty, and the- excitement and
pleasure occasioned by looking upon new
scenes and new faces in the large world
into which he came. And then he was the
recipient of many attentions that were
particularly agreeable from those who
sought him because of his money and in
troduced him to places of pleasure. Yield
ing himself to such companions, be en
tered into the ways of the dissolute (Prow
1. 10). Having no employment, he gave his
time to amusement, and gradually wasted
his substance. What father had gathered
by labor and economy, the product of
many years of wise and patient pursuit of
an honorable calling, what a short time
ago had been bestowed upon the young
man by that generous father as an outfit
in life, what might have been an untold
blessing In his hands, all this quickly dis
appeared, spent in drink and other sinful
Indulgence, for those unholy things that
enfeeble tho body and enslave the soul.
(71. Pet, II. 10.)
FAMINB The young man had fallen
into a pitiable condition. His property, so
eagerly sought and highly prized, was
gone. His health, through excessive use
of stimulants and other evil practices.
was broken. His companions, unable to
obtain what they desired, forsook him to
find new associations. (Prov. -xxvlii. 7.)
Then came a calamity that affected the
whole face of society. The heavens did
not yield their usual rains and a period of
drought set In. 'The corn did not grow
and the sed dried in the earth. Vegeta
tion perished and the fields were unculti
vated. Soon the gathered stores began to
foil, and the poor in their distress cried
for bread. A rai-jhtv and terrible famine
swept over; the land (Ruth. i. 1). one of
those visitations so common In the Bast,
(Gen. xll. 55.) Thousands suffered the
pangs of hunger, dependent on the scanty
gifts of the rich. These troubles bore
heavily upon the young man. He who a
short time ago had abundance now came
to want. The memory of better days in
creased the sorrows of the present. Had
he now a small part of what he had once
possessed he might not only live In com
fort, but he might become a minister to
others. experiencing the' satisfaction
known only to a benevolent soul. Alas! he
had not learned to forecast, to lay up for
time of need. (Prov. vt 15.)
FEEDING At last tho youns man's
case became desperate. He must find re
lief or die. Three courses were open to
him be could beg or steal or. work. The
first would be disgraceful, affordlrg but
doubtful relief, so many were there who
bad adopted this mode of livelihood, frora
which one might not easily rise. (T.uke
xrt. 20.) But. stealing would make him an
outlaw, even if it were to satisfy hanger.
(Prov. vi. 30 3L.) There was one mark of
nobility left In him. worthy of Imitation
he resolved to work. (IL Thess. 111. 10.)
In many respects that was the best day of
his life. If he held to this resolve, and
?iroper conditions offered, he might rep
rieve his fortunes. Industry is a cardinal
virtue. Unfortunately. It was not easy to
find employment. As a last resort be

Degradation complete.
RELKNT1NG The young man was
brought to his senses by the most serious
reflections. He thought of home, of his
father, of the plentv there enjoyed in the
days gone bv. of the more favorable lot
of his father's hired servants, contrasted
tilth his unfortunate state. These re
flections aroused his conscience, which
smote him vigorously for his folly and his
sin. He came thus-to bis right mind. He
had violated the law of filial duty, an
offense against high heaven (Ez. xx. 12).
the greatest crime known to the Oriental
world. (Isa. i. 2.) He made no attempt
to extenuate his fault. His course hsd
been premeditated, and he had been over
whelmed with its conequences. Genuine
repentance came into his heart. But one
hope remained notwithstanding his ill-desert
ho had faith In -his father's good
ness, .a proof that his father was not at
fault while he was' at borne. He resolved
to return. But the spirit of humility
seized him. He was not worthy. .He had
received a son's portion and squandered It.
He could not again ask for a son's place.
He was willing to be a. hired servant. He
proposed, therefore, to seek the paternal
mansion with this only plea. (James
Jr. 10.) . --

Sam. xvill. 33.) A life of sin and shame
may shock us. but It cannot destroy love.
On the contrarv. it modifies and intensi
fies affection. Towardi a good child there
flows from the parent a stream of com
placencv. but toward the erring child pity
and solicitude. The latter Is. If nosslble
stronger, and leads to sacrifices. (John III.
18.) .Peering Into the distance, the father
decerned the form of his long abient and
wandering boy. and at the sight Ms heart
melted with tender compassion. For the
moment he forgot the imperious demand,
appropriated nroperty, the hastv leave
taking, with all the disrespect Involved,
and he ran to meet his son. The spectacle
of poverty, presented at the near ap
proach, did not repel him. He f on his
n"ck and kissed him, after the rvnom of
those days. (Gen. xxxlll, 4.) It was a most
cordial welcome, proof of a father's love,
support cf a son's fainting heart. (Isa.

eien though already a father's welcome
had been given. That father must know

without confession, is Impossible. (Rom. x.
10.) The young man proceeded, declaring
that he had sinned against heaven, and
that he was unworthv to be called a son
There he paused, cerhapi overcome with
emotions, or perhaps his father inter
rupted him. At any rate, he did not pro
pose, as. he hsd Intended, to take a serv

By confessing himself unworthv he made
himself worthy. (Luke xlv. 11.) His father
did the rest, giving orders to the servants

Business Is Being So Systema
tized That When Preliminaries
Are Done Work Will Pro
ceed Smoothly.
Los Angeles. CaL. May L Very IltHe
progress was made by the Methodist
General Conference to-day. but tbe busi
ness is being' so shaped and systematized
that, with a few more sessions to clear
away tho vast quantity of preliminary
matter, tbo work will proceed smoothly
and rapidly. '
The various Important committees held
their first meetings this afternoon at half
a dozen different churches, and made a
fair startJn the business before them.
The resignation of Senior Bishop Stephen
M. Merrill of Chicago, was presented to
the conference, and referred to the Com
mittee on Kplscopacy, with Instructions
to report to the General Conference with
appropriate resolutions commendatory of
the treat service Bishop Merrill has
rendered to the church In his fifty-nine
years as minister and Bishop.
The only other Important subject con
sidered by the General Conference to-day
was the revolution offered yesterday by
.Doctor J. F. Goucnes as follows:
"Resolved. That a committee of fifteen
be appointed, to consist of one minister
and one layman from each General Con
ference district, and one at large, whose
duties shall be to report back to this Gen
eral Conference not later than May IS a
regrouping of the annual conferences In
the conference districts: so as -to secure
as nearly as may be equal representation;
having due regard, however, to proximity
of territory and similarity of Interest."
After debate as to what should be done
with this resolution had dragged along for
more than an hour, someone suddenly
discovered that there was a specific rule
of the General Conference which provided
for Its reference to the Committee on
Boundaries, and It was so ordered.
Pentecostal meetings are being held
dally at the TempIe.BaptIst Church. These
meetings are of the revival kind, addressed
ty well-known revivalists, including sev
eral Bishops, and attended by treat
crowds of church people. .Bishop C. C.

meetings. -
