GOLDEN TEXT-"Watch ye, aland fait In the faith, quit you Ilka men, be strong." -1 Cor. U-.lt. TIME Nehemlah heard the bad newi from Jerusalem early In December, B. C. 441. For four months ha prayed, thought and waited. The following April (444) ha obtained permission to go to Jerusalem. Tha Journey occupied four, months and ha arrived at Jerusalem In the first day of the fifth month, Ab July-Aug. (In Mil the first day of Ab was August 8; In 1M It will be July 12.) PLACE 8hushan and Jerusalem. RULERS Artaxerxes, Emperor of Per sian Empire; Nehemlah, governor of Judea; Ezra, the, scribe, the religious leader of the people In Babylon. . When the right time came, and Ne hemlah'g heart was burning with sor row and desire, he found "opportuni ties concealed in apparent hindrances." It was dangerous to show sorrow in the presence of the king. Even a mod ern autocrat like Louis XIV. expected everybody's face to shine if he did but appear, and how much more an Artax erxes?, What, wear a sorrowful face when he was presiding over Joy and gayety, gilding them with his pres ence? If he had ordered this melan choly visage away to prison or death, it would have been Justified by prece dent. A gloomy face might mean dis affection against the king. The light of his favor ought to be enough to drive all Badness away. Nehemlah had hitherto been able to keen a smiling face when before the king; but one day at a superb banquet, when, the queen was din ing with her husband, amid gold plate, gorgeous silk dresses of every hue, marble pillars, fountains, music, lights, sultanas, courtiers resplendent aa the sun, and all worshiping their sun Ar taxerxes, smiling when he smiled, hla sorrow shone through hla face . In spite of himself, so that the king no ticed it and said: "Why ts thy countenance sad, see ing thou art not sick? this is nothing else hut sorrow .of heart." Then he was very sore afraid, and said unto tha king, "Let the king live for ever: why Should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fa thers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed of fire? It it please the king, and if thy serv ant have found favor In thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers' sepulchres, that I may build It." The kind was pleased to grant his request, made him the Tlrshatha, or governor of Judea, "royal scent" or 'plenipotentiary," with full i powersi He traveled to Judea In "tats, with a military guard of cavalry, and with let; ters to the rulers o fthe neighboring provinces to give him whatever "he needed for his work. Nehemlah was very wise. He lay quiet for three days, doing nothing, but learning everything. He showed no credentials, he proposed no plans, he told no one what he hoped to do. His first business was to' learn the whole situation, the feelings of the people, who would oppose, and who would help, how able the people were, what Pbstaoles must be overcome. ' Nehemlah met the rulers, nobles, priests nd people, and told them of his purpose In coAIng, how he had learned of their need, how he had wept and fasted and prayed, and how God had heard his prayer and caused the great emperor to favor his plans, give him permission to come, and au thority, with orders for the surround ing rulers to give the needed help. He told them of hts midnight Investiga tions. The business side of religion should be done ss Nehemlah did It in the most skillful and Ideal business man ner. Nehemlah had a layman's good sense In religion. Walls were neces sary to the safety of the city. They were also necessary to true religion. The division of labor, the noble com petition, the Interest In their work that kept them from taking time to even put off their clothes, the giving each bis own work, and over against his own house, the union of watching and praying and working, the working to gether of old and young, rich and poor, form a real master-stroke of genius." The wall was parceled out among 44 working parties. It was like the re building of the walls of Athens after the Invasion of Xerxes, like the build ing of the walls of Edinburgh after the battle of Flodden. This plan made each one more earnest and faithful as he saw what others were doing. It ani mated the work with a noble emula tion, and a personal pride. See how fast my work goes on! See how well my piece Is done! Now, my sons, gird up your tunic, or Rephalah the son of Hur will get ahead of us. True emulation Is to do better than we have done; to seek, not to get beyond others, but to rise to the best possi ble for us; and to be Inspired to this by seeing what others have done. . Besides the hostility of the Samar itans the Jews themselves were becom ing worn out with the fatigue of such strenuous work. No good goes on to success without meeting obstacles. Evil does not fall without a battle. It throws slander, ridicule, treachery, conspiracies, influ ence, discouragements, every possible hindrance, In the way of reform. Even ome of the Jews were arrayed against their brethren. They planned to take Vphemlah and the city by surprise, iay the workers, and thus put a stop io the work, but the answer was watch lug and prayer. S. IY. SMITH ATTORNET-AT-LAW Office over Citizen!
