I; Dem?s, the ?| ? Deserter jil By REV. J, R. SCHAFFER ?j! Dlroctor of Evening Classes, Moody <\'< )\ nine Instituto, Chicago. ^ \, TEXT-Domas hath forsaken mo, hay? (iiK loVed this prosont world.-II Tim. 4:10. Tilts.- Is thu silen test biography In the annals of men-yet the tragedy of n lifetime ls pic tured In these wortfs.^ D?nias, tho deserter. What an ?execra* ?ion I How base and vile. Of all ( men, he is the most despised. Centuries ago the. war of Chris tendom had Just begun. Travelling worldwide, the great general of the cnuse recruit ed patriots to its standard lu city, Village and hamlet. Ho came into Colosse one day and gathered a crowd In the market place. He told Ibo story of the awful conflict rag ing-ho called for volunteers-and a fine specimen of Greek youth, edu cated In the subtleties of philosophy, cultured In the flue arts of lils re nowned laud, Initiated Into all Its se crets of pleasure and enchantment, stepped out of the throng, lie had been thrilled by tho recital of brave deeds, crimsoned.by sacrifice and suf fering. The appeal of tho heroic fired his soul; a burning desire was kindled to follow this Kreut lender. Ile en- j listed beneath the banner of the cross. He swore allegiance to tho Christ of Calvary. He left home 'mid kindred. Ho became a stnfr-ofllcer to the great general of the Christian' forces. For several years be shares tho honors of war, the spoils of victory, until one day lu a fierce conflict with the en emy the great Commander ls taken prisoner and cast lato a dungeon In Rome to await execution. This was too much for the gnllant young cap tain. Disappointed, disconsolate, ho deserted. General Paul writes a letter to Col onel Timothy of his stnf? nnd tells him the sad news. What a tragedy I Ho has fought side hy side with the greatest and grandest of soldiers, he has shared the triumphs of the cross from Ant loch to Rome; then be desert ed to the runks of the enemy, forsak ing Christ for the world. No wonder the "heart of thc apostle ls almost broken. It seems wo can hear the sob of his sorrow in these words: How can we account for this de sertion V I. Dcmns Was Never a Truo Soldier. A true soldier fights until peace ls proclaimed or death rewards his faith fulness. He may lose courage at times when hurd pressed, muy doubt and fal ter; may even be defeated in battle, but be can never, never desert. De sertion ls the proof of n superficial motive, tho result of an attachment. lils heart, soul, will, life, have not been abandoned to the cnuse. The Apostle John has explained this experi ence. When referring to the multitude of disciples who deserted Jesus, he says : "If they had been of us, they would not have gone out from us." Dennis ls always present In history of tho church. Thousands under tho spell of battle songs,und enlistment appeals have professed allegiance to Christ. They have put on the unl formv taken their place In the ranks, perfected the drills, gone Into battle, but when real testing came, they woro reported missing. II. Dcmns Reveals the Deception of the Human Heart. ' It ls possible to so closely resemble a Christian that only God can tell the difference. Wheat anti tares look ex actly alike until harvest. Soldiers wear the same uniform, fight under the same banner, follow tho some com mander until tho crisis conies, then one sticks, the other deserts. Satan's campaign is one of deception. Ile seeks to deceive men and women with a form of godliness, lifeless and worth less. The more nearly tho counterfeit resembles the genuino, the greater the deception, Hundreds of unconverted people have been deceived) A pro fession, a uniform, a dress parade, n battle have been tho boast of dis cipleship, but their name Is Domas, for when wounds, bloodshed and sac rifice carney they deserted. III. Dem?s Shows the Subtle Attrac tion of the World. Who can deny tho fascination, tho bewltcbery of this world? Its sights Charm lila? the mirage, its sounds en chant like siren voices, Its fleeting treasures create a riot of passion, its pomp and pride intoxicate the soul. Dennis loved the world ; lt was fatal. He never really opened lils heart to tlio lovo of etornnl things. "If any man love the world, tho lovo of tho Father ls not in him." Friendship with tho world ls enmity to God. To set the affection on things on tho earth, ls to deny heaven its rightful obligation. To follow the world's maxims and principles ls to discount tho Wold of God and the guidance of His Spirit. To live for n good time in n doomed world where sinners are going tho downward pnth to hell, ls for Nero to fiddle whllo Rome burns, for the captain to dance while the Ti tanic sinks. God has called us not only to salvation, hut out of tho world. "Come ye out from among them and bo yo separate." Angela Unaware.

Tho first thoft of an automobile bog pardpn; our mistake-we should have said a Ford oar-occurred on Tuesday of last week, shortly after noon. Mr. Abbott, representing tho Livingston Wholesale Grocery Co., slopped his oar in front of tho Cash Grocery Company's store, loft lt .standing at tho sidewalk curbing, when he should have folded it up and put it tn his pocket for safoty's sake. At any rato, Mr. Abbott went into tho store and got very doeply interested in selling a bill of goods. Ho thought no moro about tho oir until ho had finished his soiling, and thou wont out for it, but it was no where to bo found. Search was dili gently carried on, but lt was Anally and definitely established that it had not,as was at first thought probablo, rolled Into a crack in tho curbing or that a piece of paper might have blown against it, hiding lt from view, lt was gone. Tho matter was reported to offi cers, who nt onco sot out to look for tho missing car. No trace of it was found, however, until Wednesday afternoon, when it was locatod on tho public road to Salem, near tho Billson place. The "snitchor" of thc car had been forcod to "park" ow ing to tho fact that he had given out of gas, and there being not much breeze In tho general direction ho had taken, tho car refused to go fur ther. Ono of tho front tiro casings had disappeared,, wo aro told, and lt is supposed that Curtis Young, who is said to have swiped tho car-ho ad mits lt, wo are informed-took the casing off and realized something in a little sido business transaction. Young Was arrested and placed in Jail on the charge of sloallng the car. It ls said that ho was accompanied by a second party, but ho refused to tell who was with him, though ad mitting that it was he (Young) who took the car.
