PAUL'S ADVICE TO TOTOTHY
2 Tim. 3, 1-7; ill, 14-17.
... i -- -t
By REV. J. E. GILBERT, D.D., LL.D.
Secretary of the American Society of Religious Education.
AH who study these lessons aro request
ed to send their.names, poitottlce address
and denomination to the author at Wash
ington, D. C, for enrollment.
PRELIMINARY. It is believed that
Paul was approaching the end of his
career (2 Tim. lv,8), when ho wroto from
ftio city of Rome his second letter to
Timothy, probably about CO A. D or
four years before .the destruction of Jer
uealem. Twelve other epistles (or thir
teen If Hebrews Is assigned to him), had
fallen from his pen. In them ho had
dlBcUHsed the great doctrines of the
church, occupying from the first to the
last writing, ut least fifteen years. Dur
ing that time ho had traveled extensively
In Palestine. Asia Minor, Macedonia,
Greece, Spain and Italy.. He has now
como to old age (Phllem 9), but possessed
of all his powers. Looking backwards
and recalling the events of his useful
though many times arduous service, or
looking forward and upward to his re
ward (2 Tim. lv, 8), he is certainly quali
fied to give advice. It Is always Interest
ing to note tho closing utterances of a
great man, to study tho substance and
tho style of his speech, and to learn the
spirit by whlcn ne is uominaieu.
PERSONAL. What does Paul say to
himself? After tre usual manner of tho
time (see the Epistles of James and
Peter), he begins with his own name,
using not that which his parents gave
him, but that which he acquired at Pap.
hos (Acts xlll, 9). Ho calls himself "an
apostle of Jesus Christ," not hesitating
to take the rank among tho twelve (Matt.
x, 2), whom Jesus ordained. He declares
that ho obtained this ofllco "by the will
of God," that Is, he was not put into It
by men as Mathlas was, (Acts I, 20, a
fact which ho emphasized In his writings
(Gal. i, 1), as ono of particular Importance.
The purposo of his appointment as an
apostle ho sets forth, that ho might
publish that eternal life (verse 1) which
God had in view ror manKinu oy tne in
carnation of his son Jesus Christ, In
thus announcing his name and orll:e,
Paul was not egotistic. It was a neces.
sary Introduotlon to what followed, that
right views of 4ilm might bo had. Advlco
must bo weighed In the scales of good
J;idBment concerning Him w'ho gives
it. This letter Is not written by a man
merely, but by a man In this high ofllco.
SALUTATORY. What are Paul's
thoughts and feeling concerning tho ono
to whom ho wroto (verso 2)7 Ho applies
no title reverend, bishop, elder, deacon,
evangelist, pastor but calls him Timothy.
That name told the story of his mother's
devotion (Acts xvl, 1), and signified honor
ing God. Paul calls him, "my dearly be
loved son," and explains elsewhere (1
Tim. i, 1), that his relation was one cf
faith. Timothy was converted under
Paul's preaching, and by him received
into companionship and ministerial ser
vlco (Acts xvl. 1-3). Through this rela
tion had come those Intimacies (Bom. xvl,
21), whloh had endeared each to the other,
the heart of tho older naturally turning
with prldo to his young associate. In his
opening salutation Paul pronounces a
blessing upon the young man, a three
fold blessing of grace, mercy and peac,
a summary of all .spiritual good. And
in this he recognize God as Father, and
Jesus as Christ (Messiah), or Lord and
Master, These opening words apparent
day evening. F. W. rearsall, secretary
of the Railroad Young Men's Christian
association, and tho Yokenwn band will
conduct tho meeting. Everybody Is In
vited to attend our meetings. Olllcew In
charge, Captains Dickinson and Morrows.
' SEIDMAN SAYS HE WAS ROBBED.
Alleges Thnt His $1,000 Vn Stolon
Constnblo James Penman probably
didn't know when he was conducting
that sale on Penn avenuo this week
that there was a man In tho crowd
with $1,000 In his pockets.
Such, however, Is tho claim that S.
Seldman now makes. Mr. Seidman
was present at the sale nnd bid on a
suit of clothes. He was awarded the
palm by Constable Penman, but he af
terward refused to take tho clothes.
The bystanders then Jumped on Mr.
Seldman and beat him.
He went bf fore Alderman Fuller ana
swore out warrants for assault and
battery for tho arrest of Morris Cohen,
t.pwIb Cnnmnn. George Mark and
Moses Cohen. Wednesday night ithey
Yesterday Mr. Seldman went before
Alderman Howe and swore out war
rants charging the four men with at
tempting to rob him of $1,000, which
ho had In his pockets at the tlmo of
the assault. They entered ball In tho
sum of $200 each to appear at court.

AT THE NORTHWEST COLLIERY.
The Company Prepnring for n Pros
Judging from the Improvements that
aro being made at the Northwest col
liery near Simpson, the company Is
preparing for a prosperous summer.
Repairs are being made upon the
breaker, and a new trestle Is being
Work has also been commenced upon
five large water tanks. The tanks are
being built In order to be prepared
should a drought, such as" that of last
summer, occur again this year. The
colliery was obliged to shut down sev
eral days last summer owing to a lack
of water. Carbondalo Herald.
New Ofllca Boy A man called liere to
thrash you a few minutes ago.
Editor What did you say to him?
"I told him I was sorry you weren't in."
An Irishman, quarreling with an Eng
lishman, told him if he didn't hold his
tongue foe would "break, his impenetrable
head, and let his brains out of his empty
ly subordinated Timothy, but at the same
tlmo they honor him, and must havo been
received with great favor.
THANKFUL Paul next opens his
heart as If unable to control his generous
emotion toward the one beloved (verses 2
and 3). He declares his thankfulness for
tho friendship of Timothy, us he had done
for the fidelity of tho Roman Christians
(Horn. I, 8), and of the Ephesian saints,
(Eph. 1, 16). He professes that his ser
vice for God antedates his conversion and
reaches back to his forefathers (Acts
xxil, 3), an announcement that Ms whole
life has been consecrated. Ho says that
In prayer he ceases not to remember
Timothy day or night, according to his
habit of personal petition (I Thcs. 1, 2).
Ho refers to Timothy's tears, -shed per
haps at their parting (Acts xx, 37-38), or
under tho Influence of instruction given,
and expresses an earnest desire to see
him, expecting that the meeting would
Kive him Joy. How -wonderful that tho
heart of man can thus recall tho sweet
associations of other days and yearn for
a ro-unlonl Separation by a thousand
miles awakens memory, Intensifies love,
and kindles roly desire and hope.
HEREDITARY. Thus far the letter
had exprrsftd tho value of the relations
subsisting between tho two men, and the
regard arising from those relations. Next
the thought turns to an estimate of Tim
othy's real worth (verse 5). It was after
all -his "unfeigned faith," that made him
so dear to tho ppostle, a quality which
had been previously mentioned as tho end
of all holy dcslro and achlvement (1 Tim.
I, 6).) A man free from all hyoocrlsy,
truthful and good, Is universally admired.
Besides, Timothy camo of good stock. His
father was a Greek, but his mother and
grandmother were pious Jewish women,
who turned to Jesus on Paul's first mls
sloni ry tour in Iconlum (Acts xlv, 19).
It Is evident that the regard for Timothy
was increased by the fact that ho was
descended from such good women. How
ever much wo may rejoice over the con
version of ono raised up out of degrada
tion, wo can never have as much genuine
confidence In him as in cne who has an
Inheritance of virtue. After tho mock
senttmental'sm of some It Is high tlmo to
put a premium on -thoso who come of
truly good families, and who honor their
parents, by walking In their footsteps
(Ex. xx, 12).
REMINDING. All this -nas intended to
prepare Timothy for Paul's first advice
(vort.es 6 and 7). The son of such a
mother, held In high esteem by the emi
nent apostlo to the Gentiles, was remind,
ed of the ofllce into whloh he had been In
ducted, for ho had been ordained to the
Christian ministry by tho Imposition of
Paul's hands (Acts vl, 8), and ho Is now
urged to groat faithfulness (1 Tim. lv, 11).
"8tlr up the gift of God," ho says, a fig
ure of speech In which grace Is likened to
fire that needs to be stirred up lest It go
out (I Thes. v, 19). In this there is a
suggestion that pcsslbly Timothy was re
tiring In his disposition, disposed to
BhrVk from public service. He is remind

The social event of the season nt
Faptoryville was the marriage of Mr.
Frapk L. Crane, of this city, and Misrt
Carrie Harding, the accomplished and
lovely daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hard
ing, of Factoryvllle. June is the moi-.h
of rosea, weddtngs and perfect days and
Wednesday was a typical June day,
sunshine followed shower and roses
were at their loveliest. The wedding
ceremony was performed at the man
sion of the bride's parents. The inter
ior was completely decorated with June
rosco, cornatlons, and laurel blossoms.
The large drawing room was a bower
of beauty, the color scheme was pink
and white. A canopy of greeu, large
minded of obligation to be modo faithful
(2 Pet. Ill, 1).
EXHORTING. The lesson commitTeo
has abruptly broken tho apostle's lino of
thought by omitting all that follows the
seventh verse, and beginning with the 14th
of tho following chapter. Fortunately tha
disconnected .parts, when brought to
gether, appear like a continuous composi
tion. Timothy is urged, not only to dili
gence, Tnit to loyalty to the teachings
which had been delivered to him (verses
It and 15). Paul would save him from any
speculations or digressions and hold him
to the things which he had learned (Jude
3). There was In that day danger of false
doctrine contrary to tho spirit of Christ,
subversive of tho soul (Acts xv, 34). Paul
had experience on that point all through
his ministry, and now is anxious that his
young friend should stand fast. As a spe
cial Incentive ho reminds Timothy of
whom he had received these teachings,
namely his Spiritual Father, and that he
had been from childhood Instructed in
Scripture (verso 15). Hence there was no
occasion for turning aside to tho tradi
tions and vagaries of men.
FURNISHING. He who has tho Bible
l fnllv furnished for the work of the
ministry. This Is made evident by sev
eral considerations. First, vthe Scriptures
wero "given by Inspiration of God" (verse
10), and, therefore, they aro both reliable
and authoritative (2 Pet. 1, 21), what can
not be asserted of any other literature;
second, they are uble to make one "wise
unto salvation through faith" (verso 15),
giving all tho Information needed aa a
basis for the faith; third, they are profit
able "for doctrine, for reproof, for cor
rection, for Instruction," so that the
saved may go on up Into tho heights of
excellence: fourth, they cover the whole
range of thought and action In the Chris
tian llfo (Rom. xv, 4), fo that by them the
Man of God may bo (perfect (verso 17):
fifth, their outlines of human relations
and duties are so ample that by means
of them a man may toe thoroughly pre.
pared for all good works. These facts
concerning the Bible were enough to hold
a young minister to the one only stand
ard of faith and practice.
CONCLUSION.-Prlmarlly this lesson la
for ministers. It shows how those, who
havo preached tho Gospel for many years
and are about to pass away turn to tnoso
who are to follow them, anxious that tlwy
should maintain tho faith In Its purity and
discharge their duty fully. No true min
ister can bo Indifferent to tho future. His
work and Its fruit will uppear after, ho
is gone, and, If earnestly desirous to ad
vance the cause of Christ, he must seek
to perpetuate with successors what he
has begun. The lesson also has a mes
sage for all Christians, It Is not enough
for any man to live for the present, meet
ing Its obligations es they rise. He must
deslro others ta enter into and to com
plete his unfinished work (IValm xc, 17).
In like manner-they who are coming Into
places of trust, both ministers and lay
men, do well to look reverently to their
seniors 'and inquire after tho good old
way of righteousness (Jer. vl, 16), The
treasures bequeathed by the fathers ought
over to bo prized. And whatever new
thought or method may be proclaimed to
tho world, of one thing all may bo as
sured, that man will never outgrow tho
Bible, To hold and teach its truths Is
the highest duty, and honor of each gen.
enough to Include tho entire weddln?
