LESSON TEXT-Luke 10:25-37.
C.OLDliN TEXT "Thou Shalt love thy
neighbor as thyself." Mark 12:31.
Probably no other parable glvpn by
Jesus except possibly the Prodigal
Son, has made such, a deep impres
sion as this one. It has inspired al
truistic service, promoted the idea of
the brotherhood of man, and served
to cryBtallzo Christian thinking and
I. "What shall I do?" vv. 26-29.
(1) The first question. This lawyer
In his test question implied that eter
nal life was dependent upon his
works, a well nteh universal Jewish
idea. With a true teacher'B skill, '
Jesus drew from his own knowledge '
of the law an answer to his question,
viz.: that, on the ground of doing he
must love the Father with an undi
vided heart; with all his soul, the
seat of his emotions; with all his
strength energies; and with all his
mind his intellectual powers. The
evidence of such a love Is that he
must love his neighbor as himself.
Summarized the Law.
(2) The second question, (v. 29).
Jesus had not said anything to this
lawyer about belief, or faith, for he
was not yet ripe for that idea. He
had summarized the law and by this
law Jesus must teach him. Rom. 3:19,
20; Matt. 22:37-40. It is one thing to
read and summarize the law, and
quite, another tosrlghtly apply it. It
is quite possible to be ultra orthodqx
in our teaching and in our statements
of belief, and yet to fall far short
of doing. The force of this second
question is then, "Who must I love?"
He avoids asking, "Who can I love?"
The question was not as to who will
be neighbor to me, but to whom shall
I be neighbor? In answer to this
Jesus employs this wonderful parable.
(Note: Explain the nature of a para
ble and the Matter's frequent use
II. "Go and do thou likewise.", vv. '
30-37. That this story is not alone
a parable but a literal experience Is
pretty generally believed. "The way
of the transgressor" Is a Jericho road,
and the traveler therein is bound to
be "stripped," if not always of his
prosperity, hen of bis character, and
will ultimately find himself "half
dead." If left to himself" he will sure
ly die, Rom, 5:6; 6:23. Jericho means
"curse." Who then Is the man I can
neighbor? Any wretch that is pass
ing along the Jerico road. Remem
ber that Jesus is dealing with the sec
ond half of the summary of the law.
Three classes of men passed this
man; (1) The Priest, of all men the
most likely to help that fallen one,
created in the image of God in whose
worship ho led. It is easy to And an
excuse for this exhibition of heart
lessness. The danger of robbers; of
being suspected of complicity' in tho
crime; tho duties of his important of
fice; the danger of contamination; a
jvork not suited to his position in life.
Let us" beware of too hastily judging
the priest until wo examine ourselves.
(2) The Levlto. Perhaps ho had
seen his superior in the temple wor-,
ghlp; he drew nearer than tho priest,
perhaps for tho purpose qf investiga
tion, but offers no remedy. (3) The
Samaritan. This ostracized man
would have been snubbed and cursed
by tho wounded man under any other
circumstances. He therefore could
certainly have been excused had ho
followed tho example of Priest and
Levite. He is a type of Christ dealing ,
in grape with one who had no claim '
upon him. Note the steps: (a) "Ha
Journeyed," are wo to bo found -visiting
the places of great need? (b)
"He came where ho was," evidently
not fron) 'die curiosity, but to meet
a caso of need, (c) "He saw him."
Too often our eyes are blind to the
misery about us. (d) "Ho was moved
with compassion." The compassion
of Jesus was an active principle.
Does misery move us to action? Does
" it send mm to cases of need, or do wo
wait for them to knock at our door?
(e) "He bound up his wounds." Not
acting by proxy; not sending him to
a public institution. Real charity is
accompanied by warm, sympathetic,
Christ-llko, human hearts in action. I
(f) "Brought him to an inn and took
care of him."
r Love Is Costly.
It coat the Samaritan much to act
this way. Racial pride, aesthetic re
pugnance, commercial obligations,
perhaps family duties, to say nothing
of the actual expenditures of time and
money. Hut love is a costly thing.
Jesus himself fully portrays this pic
ture, John 3:16. The road was away
from God's city, Jorusalem.
It la not so much tho doing as tho
motivo that compelled the doing. It
was not duty but desire, compelling
love, that Jesus Is exalting. Altruis
tic servlpe never saved any man, I.
Cor, 13. On tho other hand, to mako
high sounding professions and not to
give a tangible, material evidence
which will affirm that prpfesglon, is to
sound the note of insincerity, Jas.

that the true and acceptable, motives
for altrustlc, neghbprly-sejyices orig
inate in a lovo for God that embraces

A Story of
A Mystery
At nineteen I Itwt my father, mid since
ne left his affnlrs In n very bud statu
it was absolutely necessary thut 1
get married, I lived In a suburban
town not fur from a city, and the
boys as soon as they had received nu
education left It for parts that fur
nished better opportunities for mak
ing n living. Consequently there was
no one for me to marry. Ned Freeman
remained on the place, but hi' bad no .
menus nud was not engaged In any
business. I wished lie would do some
thing to get ahedd, for 1 liked him
very much, and 1 fancied that If he
could support a wife he would ask me
to marry him.
The idea of ncheitlsliy: for a hits- i
band occurred to me. I was young
nnd unsophisticated and did not real
ize that matrimonial advertisements
are not likely to bring satisfactory re
sults. 1 wrote out what I wished to
communicate and started out with It
to do some shopping. Intending to
mall my letter addressed to n news
paper in the city at the same time.
I did not take a bag with me. and
having ho pocket I carried the letter
In my band. 1 was so undetermined
about posting It that I carried It about
with uie while I made my purchases.
Then I missed It. Whether I had laid
It on a counter or dropped It I couldn't
tell. Mut my losing It decided the
question us to what I should do about
It, for, being addressed and stamped,
the finder would drop It in the mail.
The next day I looked In the news
paper for my advertisement, and, sure
enough, there It was. I thanked heav
en that whoever had found It could
not know from anything on the envel
ope that 1 had advertised for- a hus
band In a few days 1 went to the
city and called for any replies there
might be for me. I was handed sev
eral, all of which, except oue, I tore
into bits as soon as I had read them.
The exception was apparently genu ,
ine. It was couched in respectful Ian
guage, seemed 'to Indicate that the
writer really wished a wife and was
quite practical. He proposed that we
correspond till we should get some
knowledgo of each other by that means
then meet.
All tills led me to place confidence
In him, and I replied to his letter giv
ing him n fictitious name and tho
number of a box I hud rented for tho
purpose at the postofilce.
We corresponded for several months.
That he was an educated man there
was no doubt. I asked for his occu
pation, but he declined to give It. This
aroused a slight suspicion, which I in
dicated in my next letter. Then ho con
fessed that he was trying to do some
thing in a literary way. He had writ
ten some short stories which had been
published In obscure periodicals. He
was now finishing a novel and would
soon hare It ready to offer to pub
lishers. This announcement cast a damper
on the affair. I bad had several girl
friends who had tried to make money
by writing, and they had all failed. I
felt that since 1 had fallen Into the
hands of one who was down with tho
literary fever, uothlng would ever
come of It all. I did not reply to his
letter making the announcement for
some time; then I received a letter
from him which was a trifle reproach
ful, whereupon I wrote him that I
feared he was impractical.
yI received no reply to this for some
time; then he wrote that he had se
cured a publisher for his novel and
it would bo issued the next sprng.
He added that if it wero a success ho
would take steps to mako my further
acquaintance: if not. the matter be
tween us would better be dropped.
Since no reply seemed to be required
I sent none.
One morning while looking over a
newspaper I saw an advertisement of
a forthcoming novel by Edwnrd Free
man. How-singular that the only two
men I had eer thought of marrying
should both be novelists. I was sur
prised, for I did not know that Ned
had any ambition to be a sciibbler.
The advertisement described his novel
as a detective story of marvelous in
genuity. It seemed to me that if any
story would be profitable It would bo
one of the detective kind. I wrote to
my correspondent to ask what kind
of a novel he was about to publish
and he replied that bis motif In tho
Btory was a mystery. This did not
enlighten me.
Several months passed and I heard
nothing from my correspondent Then
one day he wrote that he would call
upon mo tho next evening. This quite
took away my breatb. At the appoint-.
ed hour Ned Freeman came in as I
was expecting my unknown friend. I
must have shown my embarrassment,
for he said at once:
"I'm not going to interfere with nuy
body or anybody with me, I know all
about your correspondent, for I'm the
man blmscir.
"Oh, heavens!"
"One dny I walked behind you on
the street nnd saw yon drop a letter.
I picked It up and mailed it for you.
I Wondering why you were writing to
a newspaper I looked- over the Issue
tho. next day and saw yonr ad."
I was too amazed and embarrassed
to do more than stare.
I Ned, to give me time to recover my
self, went on to say that his novel was
so far successful that he bad made n
contract with tho publisher to write,
another one.
I A year from that timo.wa wer map
1 ried.
Daisy Archibald's
"IJzzle." said Daisj Archibald to her
bosom friend, "papa Is going away for
a month on business. His filend Mr.
Morynoux is going to stay at the house
to protect us. I heard papa ask him
last night while I was studying my
lessons nnd they were smoking to
gether. Did you ever see Mr. Moly
noux? Bo's awfully handsome, i'apa
told him that he needn't tiouhle him
self to stay at home evenings. He
could come in at any hour."
"How old Is Mr. Molynoux?"
"He Is thirty-four; bht, you know.
I'll be sixteen next month. Besides,
I've always Intended to marry a man
much older than myself. I don't care
a bit for boys. It's all fixed,"
"What's fixed?"
"Why, about Mr. Motynoux's coming,
) be sure."
"Oh, I thought you meant that tt
Was all fixed about your marrying
And so It was. Nothing was further
from the mind of Mr. Archibald, who
had seen his daughter grow up from
a baby and did not realize the change
the last two or three years bad made
fti her. Indeed, the last Christmas he
had given her a doll. She had receiv
ed It affably, but as soon as her fa
ther's back was turned had taken It
up to tho garret, where she left It. As
for Mr. Molynoux, he had no use for
schoolgirls, and his associates were
chiefly men. He was to take his
breakfast at the Archibald home and
his dinner at his club.
After having bieakfasted Tor the first
time with (iiiiiidina Archibald .and
Daisy, the latter said, with a smile:
"Mr. Molynoux. which way do you
go when you leave the house?" .
"Right down thp avenue. Can I do
anything for jou?" I
"Why, no I go down tho avenue to .
"Oh, jou do."
It didn't occur to Ned Molynoux to
walk to school with a little girl, but
when he came to leave the house the
little girl left it at the same time. She
chirped at him llku a blid, as they i
walked together, doing most of the '
talking, incoherently, herself and look
ing up at hiin occasionally with n pair
of soft childish eyes, but with an ex
pression in them that surpris-ed him.
Now, If there is that In certain girls '
which attracts them to men much old- I
er than themselves there is that In old
er raeu which renders them apprecia
tive of very jonng girls. A man ap-
proachiug forty is conscious that he Is i
passing beyond the sphere of young
ladles, even those who have passed
well beyond the teens, and he is be
ginning to be highly appreciative of
any notice whatever or attention
from them. It was not what Miss
Daisy said to him; it was the fact that
she looked very proud of having him
for a companion.
"Grandma told me to ask you to
dlncwlth us this evening," she said
When their ways parted. This was
true, but Daisy had suggested the In
vitation. "Grandma Is ery kind. You may
tell her that I'll dine with her with
Molynoux dined at the Archibald
home that evening and a number of
other evenings. After dinner he sat
chatting with the grandmother, some
times smoking and reading the even
ing paper till Daisy had studied her
lessons-bhe didn't give them much at
tention then be would play checkers
or domlnos or some other game with
them, she chatting like a magpie all
the while, he falling under an Influ
ence that he found very refreshing.
Occasionally when Miss Daisy, who
was hovering the while between child
and woman, would give flashes of the
latter Molynoux would be frightened,
for he had been asked to ufford pro
tectlon to a child, and anything Hko n
complication would be terrible. At
such times, he would contemplate leav
ing the Archibald home for good, but
he didn't see how he could de-eit his
post, nnd yet If he stayed lie feared
trouble. But he stayed.
What his friend Archibald learned
on his return of the proceedings at
home during his absence Molynoux did
not know. It may be that grandma
had been more observant than she ap
peared: it may be that Daisy herself,
proud of having captured a grown
man, made no secret of what had been
going on. Archibald thanked his
friend for having accommodated him
during his absence, but said nothing
further. But Molynoux received a
note from, Daisy stating that her fa
ther had decided to send her to board
ing school nud she would go immedi
ately. She said she was broken heart
ed, whatever that meant.
For the next few years Molynoux
was in a condition of mental unrest.
His club, his men friends, were be
coming uninteresting to him. Ho loved
to think of the evenings ho had spent
, with "that little minx." Dnlsy Archi
bald, still thinking of her as a little
minx. Her father kept her at school,
but she returned at last and he in
vited Molynoux to dinner.
Daisy was much changed, but retain
ed the same characteristics. She was
somewhat conscious on meeting the
man to whom she had made love when
she was emerging from childhood, but
It wns not long before Molynoux dis
covered, or thought he discovered, that
her action. Instead of being nil child,
had a sprinkling of woman In it
nowever this may be, Molynoux is
now married to Daisy Archibald, and

The Sergeant's
Copyright, 1013, by Associated Lit
erary Pie'ss
It may have been known among the
ollkers that she was coming a blue
eyed, fair hailed girl of eighteen from
the east named Miss Hell but the first
we heaid of It was when we went to
the depot as afi escort.
Miss Bell was a regular chatterbox.
She couldn't understand the wide gulf
separating officer from private, but In
Ignorance thought a soldier was a sol
dier, no matter whether bo carried a
saber or a sword. Being left alone
with Sergeant Larklus for a few mo
ments while the captain sent off u
telegram for her. she did not hesitate
to chatter away as If they had been
formally Introduced and had met be
fore, nnd this nctlou of hers was to
have a strange bearing on after
events. After u couple of days we no
ticed a change In Sergeant Larklns.
He wns n young man of thirty, well
educated and evidently something
above the common, nud there were
rumors that his father was a wealthy
New Yorker and that the son had en
tered the army because of a quarrel
between them. 1 repeat that we saw
a change In him. nnd pretty soon it
came to us thut he had fallen in love
with Miss Bell at first sight.
Miss Bell bad been at the fort about
a month when the Sioux on the reser
vation began to make trouble, and the
Indian police reported that a number
of them had broken away and were
marauding In the foothills. Such sto
ries were always afloat, and no cre
dence was given them until some deed
of violence had been committed. It
had been planned by half a dozen of
ficers and their wives to hold n picnic
at the falls of Buffalo river, and so
Sergeant Larklus and the same half
dozen of us were again detailed. It
was twelve miles to the falls, and the
picnickers were loaded into two am
bulances. There were five officers.
seven ladles and three children, and
the escort was ordered to keep them
In sight. I
From the first Sergeant Larklns sat
apart from us nnd seemed moody and
taciturn. There wns no question but
that Jealousy was at work, and ho
hadn't the strength of mind to throw It
off and realize the situation. We had
many a wink and laugh at his expense,
and jet we felt to pity him. We had
been told to go up for the empty bas
kets at 4 o'clock, and tho hour had
Just gone '1 when a fusillade of revol- j
ver shots, followed by the warwhoopa
of Indians, Jumped every man to his
feet. Ten seconds later we wero fol
lowing the sergeant up tho gorge, and
In five minutes we carao upon the wo
men and children hidden away among
the rocks and stricken with terror. A
quarter of an hour before the five offi
cers had caught sight of a cub bear on
the other side of the falls. They had
gone up stream a few rods and crossed
on n log, but the shots we heard had
not been fired at the cub. A band of
twenty or more renegades who were
hiding in the foothills had discovered
the picnickers half an hour before
and were. planning a wlpeout of every
soul when the officers moved. They
played right Into the bands of tho red
men. In their chase after the cub
they left the falls half a mile behind,
nnd as they came slowly back they
found the Indians confronting them.
Thero wns but one course to make a
dash' for tt und It was gallantly done.
The Indians were too strong and too
well posted, however. A lieutenant
was dropped dead in his tracks and a
ma or and a captain wounded.
The first move on our part, seeing
that the women and children were
safe, was to secure cover behind tho
bowlders and open fire on the Indians.
They had counted on a sure thing, nnd
their j-ells of rage when they knew of
our presence were loud nnd long. We
hud them between two flies, nnd yet
so well were they sheltered that they
had no means of knowing that they
had only two unwounded men in front
of them, armed with revolvers. The
women told us nboUt tho officers going
away In a body; but. although there
had beeu severe firing, we hoped none
of them had been bit. After we had
fired thiee or four rounds apiece the
sergeant called out to know how it
wns with the officers. The major an
swered, giving the names of the killed
and wounded. Three of the five were
behind the same bowlder and could use
their revolvers, it was a curious po
sition In which the three parties were
placed, but as the Indians were in
such a strong force they could defend
their front nud rear at the same time.
If we left cover to cross tho creek we
would be exposed to certain death. If
they left cover to attack the camp we
had only to shoot them down. What
we feared was that they would get out
of the trap by dashing upou tho offi
cers In front or work to the left and
finally take them In the rear.
We solved the difficulty by sending
one man back to the post for re-en-foicements.
while we held the Indians
with our fire. When the now troops
came tip we drove the Indians off
nnd got the women nnd children nnd
wounded officers safely out of it. It
was geuerally conceded that Sergeant
I.arklns had put up the best fight of
any one officer or enlisted man. The
colonel recommended him for promo
tion, and then the secret came out that
to had not only got a commission, but
Ind got Miss Boll. But the best part
of It was that Larklns was worth half
a million in bis own right.
