"Well," enid little Mother Gossip to>
the Kiri who was adventuring with
the boy to the
house of Secrets,
what have you to
tell us?" Mother
Gossip had been
the latest persou
for them to meet.
Her lips were
curled and they
didn't seem to
move or change
even as she ate,
for they were now
all eating supper
as fast us they
could, except Mr.
Wood Elf and the
boy and the girl.
All of Mother
Mr. Wood Kif had just whispered to
Hie boy and girl that he had a deli
cious picnic supper ready for them ut
the top of the hill, so that they needn't
eat here. It was entirely too disagree
able a place.
"Well," said the girl, "we've met so
many nice people ulong tho rond."
"Nice?" screamed Mother Gossip.
"You mean you thought they were nice
and then found out how horrid they
were? That's lt, eh?"
All tills Urne the Tattle-Tale Twins
kept Interrupting to tell on the other
while Mother Gossip smiled In her ugly
way every time they did so. The boy
and the girl thought the Tattle-Tale
Twins were quite the most horrid crea
tures they had ever met. In fact, they
thought tho twins would never get
Uirough trying to get out of things
themselves and blaming each other
and their relatives and telling on
The dull brown suits of the twins
were so ugly, too. They looked ns If
they were never brushed or cleaned.
"No," said Um girl, "they didn't tum
out to be horrid in the least. In
fact we've met some delightful peo
ple, quite delightful," said the girl.
"Didn't you bear any stories about
them which made you think differ
ently?" asked Motlier Gossip.
"None," said the girl.
"Well," she sold, turning to the
boy disappointedly, "what have you
to tell me?"
"Nothing but about our adventures,
if you'd like to hear ubout them. I
thought I had a lot to tell you, as the
girl thought, too. We are so full of
stories of our adventures and the in
teresting people we've met, but your
kind of new?-we liaven't any."
"You haven't any I" screamed Moth
?er Gossip. "How perfectly horrible.
Well, I'll tell you, that you can be
pretty sure tlmt most of those people
you met, whom you thought were so
?lice, had something queer about them.
Maybe they'd eaten their neighbor's
cherries which hung over In tbeir back
yard, and pretended to their neigh
bors that the birds had eaten them, or
maybe some of them pretended they
sent their clothes to the laundry, and
.actually washed them themselves In a
tub behind the house.
"I've no doubt that you went along
.with your eyes shut, yes, that ls what
you must luive done, for If you had
had your eyes opened you would have
thought it was very peculiar the way
the lady who lived In th?! white house
with green blinds had two blinds
Closed und two open in the right hand
room in front of her house. That
looked very strange to me. She ts
without a doubt making herself a wig
behind those closed blinds. Her hnlr
has been growing veiy thin of late, and
she doesn't want anyone to know lt.
"But oh, dear, I'm so disappointed
in you. You won't bo nice to my
dear twins, and
you've brought me
no news. I'm glad
I don't belong to
your family. Why,
you're both so
pleasant and kind
and charitable. All
those things don't
get along with
"I wanted to
hear of queer
things, und of how
you would tell a
story on the boy,
and he one on
"They don't do
such things," said
Mr. Wood Elf.
"They agree with me Huit the tattle
tale Is alwnys worse than the one
who has done the thing which ls ho
ing tattled about. They are very de
cided on that point-Just as I am.
Mercy, In my opinion, the person who

for our nation and made her what

Those words ore spoken by tho
Pnom los of the Loni! Little did they
know that they
were tolling the

wrath shalt Thou restrain." And thus
the Spirit ol' Cod sel/.es upon their
words and writes (hom down as a part
of Holy Script ure. Oil, blessed news
they are (oiling: This Man recelveth
Self-righteousness has no need for
grace; will not, Indeed, have lt ; and
these upright, religious Pharisees re
sent the grace (bat ls Hewing out of
Christ to ntl the world and that opens
the Father's house to the very out
casts ol' earth. Tho Lord Jesus will
permit no testimony to Himself from
demons, though full well they know
und own His deity and Snviorhood, but
He will permit this proclamation by
His foes, so well does Ile love to have
lt known that Ile recelveth sinners.
It ls nowhere said that Ile receives
others. Nowhere do we lind Ulm do
ing so. When the best man of his day
came to Him by night, expecting to bo
taught something that would maka
him still better than he was, be
learned in a moment that ho had not
yet begun to-live, and that he must be
born again to enter the kingdom of
When a lawyer of blameless Ufo
tempted Him wffch his question:
"What shall I do to Inherit eternal
life?" the Lord referred him to the law
with Its impossible standard to show
him that he ls a sinner.
Are there, then, others than sin?
ners? There ore- not, for thus it Is
writtten : "All Have sinned and como
short of the glory of God." And
whether these self-righteous enemies
of the Lord are able to appreclato lt
or not, they are compelled to listen to
Ills holy sarcasm: "I am not como to
call the' righteous, but sinners." It is
He who has pronounced upon this
world' of sin, and His estimate of men
shall abide in spite of their good oplu?
tons of themselves. "Sinners," He calls
them, and such they aro.
Hut oh, to think that this ls what
gives them a claim upon Him 1 Yen,
ft ls the only claim they have or cam
have! This man recelveth slnnera
And net only dees Ile receive them:
He seeks them out, knocks nt their
door and pleads with them to let Him.
tn. "The Son of Man ls come to seek
and to save I" "Behold, I stand nt tile
door and knock !" "All day long I
have stretched forth my hands."
And how does He receive theroT'
Are there conditions to be met first?
Are we to make ourselves flt for Him?'
No! And so eager ls He to have us
know this that Ho lias written it down
In a hundred tales and portrayed'lt In
ti hundred1 types and shadows;
In r'ic same Instant that Isaiah con
fessed the need that the light: of God's
throne had revealed, he found that
need fully met without condition of'
any sort. "Woe ls me!" "Then flow
one of the seraphim"-"flew," Uko tho?
lightning, with the provision of the?
altar that puts away discovered sim.
What sn ld Jesus to the "woman of
the city which was a sinner" as she'
"stood nt Ills feet behind'Him?" "Thy
sine are forgiven .thy faith
hath saved thee!"
What said He to the? woman all1 sin
as He sat by Jacob'* well? "I* glvo
thee living water !"
What said He to the adulteress
brought to Him In the temple?
"Neither do I condemn thee!" Ills
enemies have brought this poor shiner
to Him without knowing that they
were doing the host possible thing fo*r
her. and that the only safe place fw
any sinner Is tho presence' of Oft?'
What said liv? to the malefactor, but
now railing upon him In blasphemy,
as he hung upon a felon's cross?
"Verily, I say ?into thee, today shalt
thou be wirb me in paradise."
And our question l's answered': He
recelveth sinners without an upbraid
ing word or a syllable of reproach
without a question or a condition ?t
And" to what does He receive sin
ners? To Ills own level, to n phire at
His Side, for they sit at table with
Him; to the dearest Intimacy; to un
broken I Howship, and thus to the
sweet foretaste of heaven's bliss: HE
EATETH WITH THEM ! The Chris
