In Main* lt ls contended tbat th* caribou can outrun any other animal. According to the testimony of on* woodsman, caribou left behind a grey? hound that had been matched against them. A guide succeeded In starting th* dog after some caribou?a herd of four standing like statues on tbe ice of one of the big ponda In the region along the west branch of the Penob scot. Now, the caribou trots. Instead of running, like moat other wild animals In the present case there had been a plentiful fall of snow, a rain which had formed a thick crust, and then an? other fall of snow, all of which consti? tuted the very finest surface whereon to hold a race of this description. When tbe greyhound was loosed Its owner confidently expected that lt would outrun the caribou. When the caribou woke up and hit their pace it was a sight to see them. They did not appear to be proceeding with much speed, but as the hound drew up on them they increased their pace. Tbe bound was doing his very best, but made no headway against the caribou at all. The dog stuck to it with courage, but before lt was half way across the pond the caribou had reached the other aide and disappear? ed in the woods. A Novel Idea.

Matthew 13. *a-M OOLDIM TEXT?**alsst* y? firs' Ms klrigdoro, anil his righteousness: arni all ?these thlnjrs shall be avldeJ unto you." Matthew 6:33. We have studied some of tie prin? ciples that are to obtain In the es? tablishing and the working out of this new kingdom Jesus c;m:e to found, and the question naturally arisen, "Is lt of sufficient value for me to con? sider or seek to enter it, or to possess lt?" In our Ifsson today there is Mt before us I. - parables (Jehus' favo. '9 way of teaching) which he gave p.v ately to his disciples and '-ot to the multitude, that ought to ai.'uer any ? such questioning In our hear-? The first two have to do aith the great value of the kingdom, t ? rec ond Its mixed character and final ;? ? i ration, and the last, the great res, slbllity of those who possess I truths. In this entire group of par? ables found In the thirteenth chapter of Matthew are four that are for men "who are careful to observe the out *ward development, and four others that are for those men of faith v ho see beneath the surface the hld len things of the kingdom. Those men who view the kingdom, in each par? ticular age as God sees rather tl.an as man observes. Today's lesson sets forth the pur chase of things of great value. thc ac? quisition and dLsposttion of thin*;- of a mixed value, and lastly, the use of these values after coming Into the pos? session of them. I. The hidden treasure, v. 4! Per? haps more properly this should be termed the parable of the bought field. Wa need to remember that ia all of these parables the Master himself is the important personage. He ls the one who sows the seed. etc. Hence we understand that he is the one who discovers this great treasure hid? den in the field. Hay has already told us that "the field ls the world'' (Matt 13:38). Symbolism cf Pearls. II. The pearl of great price, vs. 45, 46. This parable ls very much the' same as the foregoing, yet lt adds great strength and force to this study in value*. We ought to be very clear in our study and appli"ition. The pearl of great price uia> perhaps bs taken as a symbol of our salvation, but if so for us to Interpret the merchant? man as tbe eomuji mitty ol man would be for the sinner to purchase his own salvation, a thing as far as possible for the New Testament teaching. Why does Jesus sjieak of pearls to the Hebrews who di ! not esteem them at all? What is tha symbolism of a pearl? The pearl ls the one precious stone that is the result of a li\ir.g organism: it ls the result of an injury done, to the life of the oyster. It has always stood for purity and for in- ? nocence. Is lt then illogical for us to assume that Chri.-t is the merchant? man who gave all to redeem ie. g.. buy back) the lost souls of mankind? III. The drag net. vs. 47 -M. This parable ls another that deals with the mixed character of the kingdom here upon the earth and of the final so; ara tion incident t'-^roto. lt is t -*' eabla that this Is i.a votive, not i: , loni, fishing. There will be many move "" j ments that will ostensibly bo for the . I gathering of men into this kingdom, but the principle here laid Iowa is that one considered in the lesson of the wheat and the tares, viz., that ul? timately there shall be cast ont all things that do offend. In the finality of all things tho kingdom all be without spot or blemish. Hence we do not read Into this parable .??* tr isis upon any phase of smug lism. Search the Scriptures. TV. The householder, vs. 51-53. In the first of these parables we bad the Word as the seed of this new kingdom, In this the eighth of thc kingdom par? ables we revert as lt w* . >* to the mat? ter of the Word. Jesus asks his disciples If they nuder trad the Word he has spoken to them. Their re? sponse ls. "Yes, we clo." Then Jesus shows them what a I" rd en of respon? sibility due to possession rests upon them. Jesus re'er; to the Scribes whose work Radi .he Jewish econ? omy was to transcribe and to interpret ?. and tells the disciples that they in a k like manner are to Interpret the king dom to all men They ure to "hiing forth" hidden treasaT s Va's most re? member that Jesus taught in par.ibVs that "hearing they might not hi;.:." etc.. hence we are to s?>ar,i-h the Scriptures and bring forth these hid? den treasures of truth as we ga about doing our part. Are we willing to pay the price for a mt the sake-of the pearl? Are we willing Lw to pay the price of the 1*1*1 that oth? ers may possess the great treasure cf eternal life in Christ T Ho,-paid the price to purchase eternal life for us. Do not forget the kim*doni is not eat? ing and drinking, but righteousness and Joy and peace In the Holy Spirit (Rom. 14:171. The treasure **as discovered, the pearl sought after; both methods ,1 have their place and significance in ** our lives that are to be hld\wlth Christ in God.
