(By E O. SELLERS. Director or Evening
Department, the Moody Bible Institute,
WESSON TEXT Luke 1111-13.
GOLDEN TEXT-"Ask And It shall be
(riven unto you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock and It shall be opened unto you."
Luke 11:9.
The only record we have of this par
able Is in this gospel. This portion of
Scripture Is usually thought of as be
ing a great teaching on prayer. It is
that, and It is more than that. It Is a
great illustration of the sound princi
ples of pedagogy employed by that
wonderful Bible teacher, our Lord and
I. Teaching by example (v. 1). There
was that in the prayer life of Jesus
that was different than that of the for
malists religionists of his day, some
thing that inspired the request, "Lord
teach us to pray." His prayer life was
different, it was effectual. Notice, in
passing, the respect of the disciples
"when he had ceased." If there is one
lesson the oncoming generation needs
to Jearn it is that of reverence. His
prayers were too sacred to permit of
any Intrusion. His praying also awoke
In their memory tire prayer life of
John the Baptlser. There is deep psy
chology here. Observation, memory,
perception, concept, all In their logical
Most Wonderful Prayer.
II. Teaching by formula (vv. 2-4). Tho
hUman mind is weak and needs that
assistance which is to be found in a
clear statement of truth. Not always
can we iave the benefit of a strong
personality. Hence Jesus gives us a
formula, or prayer, often called the
"Lord's Prayer," but more correctly
termed "the disciples' prayer." This
is in some respects the world's most
wonderful prayer, certainly the most
familiar. Lacking In personal pro
nouns, It begins with that matchless
conception of God, "our Father," it de
scends step by step from a considera
tion of his hallowed name, his king
dom, and his will (Luke 22:42) in
heaven and upon earth, down to the
question of our need of daily food. It
then sweeps backward through the re
lations of mankind to each other, to
temptation, to the power of sin, back
(Matt. 6:13) to God once more, back
to the Alpha and Omega. In it is in
vocation, supplication and adoration.
It sweeps the whole gamut Of man's
need, physical, mental and spiritual. It
begins in heaven, it encircles the
earth, it rebounds to those realms of
glory from which the Son came, and to
which he returned. A study of the
prayers of the saints, living and dead,
ought to be more emphasized. This;
Kingdom here mentioned is yet to be
fully established. A kingdom de
mands a king (Rev. 22:20); Us begin
ning, though, Is in the hearts of men;
it Implies entire submission to God's
will (Luke 22:42); it delights In doing
that will (John 6:38, Eph. 6:6); it de
mands an entire sanctification of our
lives, and a desire that his will shall
rule in the earth (1 Thess., 4:3). The
fifth petition Is not the prayer of the
unsaved sinner (John 9:31), Fellow
ship with God depends upon our will
ingness to forgive others (Matt. 6:14,
15; Mark 11:25); but that is not the
ground of God's forgiveness (Eph. 1:7;
4:32). God does not tempt men (Jas.
1:13); he does permit temptation to
assail us, such as modern economic
conditions (Mark 1:12, 13), but God
never allows us to be tempted above
what we can bear (1 Cor. 10: 13T). Vol
umes have been written about this
prayer and yet its fulness has not even
been suggested. The teacher who
really prays cannot be a failure, for he
has the power of God behind his labor.
He must, however, not limit himself to
his prayer only (Phil. 4:6; Jas. 5:13,
l4). The Christian's prayer must be
in the name of Christ, which is not
named here, for he was not yet cruci
fied. The Holy Spirit.
HI. Teaching by parable (vv. 6-10) "A
parablo is an earthly story with a
heavenly meaning." Orily the teacher
who can translate truth into terms of
"it is like" has really begun to teach.
Let us beware, however, of a wrong
comparison and of to vivid details.
This Is not a picture of God, only by
way of contrast is he suggested. There
are three friends here: (1) The needy
one in his journey; (2) the needy one
who was host, and (3) the needy one
who was a selfish neighbor. The pau
perism of the second was inexcusable
(Phil. 4:19); tho wandering of the
first at night vae cannot go unchal
lenged (Matt. 28:20). As for the
third, it was a most unseasonable hour
and his friend's .insistence was unrea
sonable, yet, bis Insistence emphasized
the urgency of the request and the con
fidence' of a friend.
IV. Teaching by contrast (vv. 11-13).
Pedagoglcally considered this is the
application. Notice It is Introduced by
the word "for" and the summary Is the
sum and substance of all good, tho
Holy Spirit. Jesus contrasts bread,
that which preserves life, with a stone,
which is dead and lifeless. He con
trasts fish, one of the most common
meat foods, with a serpent, which sig
nifies deception, and an egg, which ia
not only nutritious but reproductive
as well, with a scorpion, which has in
it the sting of death. Each promise, Is
predicted upon a command (Jas. 4:2),
ask, seek, knock. ,

In placing the price of admission at
25 cents the Cincinnati Automobile
Trade Association feel that a visit

advantage of this wonderful opportu

who miss seeing Its attractions.
As the show opens Its doors at 10
a. m. and is a continuous perform
ance until 10:30 p, m., and as it is
practically within whistling call of the
principal hotels, restaurants, theaters
and a radiating point from which ex
tremely short lines diverge to all
points of Cincinnati, it will be no tax
on the time, energy or pocket to en;
ter its inviting portals.

Of the Cincinnati Automobile
Trade Association
Cincinnati Automobile Trade Asso
ciation. The design for the Auto Show poster
was drawn by Mrs. Raymond Hendrlck
son, wife of the president of the Cin
cinnati Automobile Trade Association
A modern Juno dominating the mo
tor car.
The poster has taken like wild Are,
and is considered a most decidedly
clever effort for an amateur in success
fully stealing the thunder of the pro
fessional advertising poster artists..
The first annual show of the Cin
cinnati Automobile Trade Association
will be the first auto show ever held in
a flieproof building, and when one ap
proaches the corner of Fourth and
Vine streets they are awed by the
magnificent Union Central Life Insur-.
ance building, with its first four
floors, stones of white marble, and the
balance of the exterior of white ivory
malt terra cotta, relieved with bits of
blue and yellow up to the pyramidal
roof, which is paneled In gold-glazed
tile, which can be seen for many miles
by the reflection of light on gold tile.
Approaching the main entrance,
which is on the level with Fourth
street, you will note the ornamental
lamps, hand forged, of remarkable de
sign, showing true craftsmanship. On
passing thiough the bronze door at the
main entrance the spacious hall
traverses the entire length of the
building. One is enchanted with
the grandeur of the decoration,
golden celling, hand-carved im
ported Spanish marble columns and
wainscoting, and the bronze elevator
frames and doors. There are twelve
elevators self-contained in fireproof
partitions and wire glasB door In two
batteries, facing each other. Every
modern automatic safety device has
been placed on every car. The express
service Is now operated with speed of
700 feet per minute, which is tho only
one outside of "New York City. The
capacity of service is unequaled In Cin
cinnati, with cars running every day
and night.
Just beyond the elevator Is the stair
way which leads to the Chamber of
Commoiee. This stairway Is all hand
carved Imported marble, highly deco
rated, and Is conceded to be the finest
Ualrway in America.
At home from February 7 to 14 and
an the ground floor, at that, in this
magnificent skyscraper tho Cincinnati
Automobile Trade Association are go
ing to make motor car buying not tho
guess work that it was In the past.
With so many good cars exhibited of
various types and prices the visitor tc
each of Its brilliantly Illuminated and
esthetlcally decorated halls can no
fail to find a motor vehicle suitable to
his purse and ideas of taste or style
and all other requisites In the wonder
ful display.
Entertainment will be a predom
inant feature of the show. Two or

some wonderful work. It was he who

This piece of decoration was probably
the finest ever seen In Cincinnati. Mr.
Fern Is an artist. He has conceived
a plan to turn the vast ground floor
and basement of the Union Central
building into a beautiful southern
garden for the week of the, Auto Show.
The rows of white pillars In the build
ing will be utilized to support a mass
of trellis work, which will be covered
with, growing southern vines and flow
ers. These will be Illuminated by thou
sands of miniature colored lights. The
large windows of the building will not
be covered, and the building will pre
sent a beautiful appearance, from tho

and night. Both floors will be deco
rated alike and no distinction will be

An Artist's
Walter I'liulps f ruin tho time lie wan
six years old gave evidence of' pos
sessing nitNtk- abilities and when he
was fourteen hutniu to mtnly tin- pio
t'osslon or p.ilnMmr. One fin ulty lie
possessed was that of endowing any
thing which became attractive to him
through association with beauty. Near
hiM home llwd u little girl, who be
came his plti.vumtu. She was of u low
er social grade than Walter, but his
parents hitd no fear of his falling iu
loo with her, for she wus very home
ly, and they, not knowing of his dis
position to endow what lie liked with
beauty, supposed that an nrtist would
only fall In love with a beautiful wo
man. When Wnlter wus twenty years old
he became engaged to this girl, Martha
Glbbs, to the astonishment of every
one who knew him. Her hnlr was n
fiery red. her tcetli wece prominent,
nnd she had n cast In her eye. But his
parents, knowing how useless It is to
Interfere between lovers, retrained
from any attempt In the case of their
son. Besides, they knew nothing
against Maltha except her homeliness
and her indifferent social position. No
one supposed that Wnlter considered
his betrothed beautiful till he painted
her portrait nnd they observed that he
. looked at It with admiring eyes. Then
1 everybody realized that his love for
her caused him to endow her with n
beauty that existed only in his imagi
nation. I Great as was their surprise at this
discovery, It was nothing compared
with their astonishment when they,
learned that he was using Mnrtha for
a model. He painted her as a shep
herdess, as springtime and, dressing
her In fnshlonable attire, as a lady.
Then, when his pictures found no pur-
-chasers, Instead of attributing his ill
success to his choice of a model, he
became Impressed with the Idea that
he had- mistaken his cnlling. About
the time he was making up his mind
to this effect Mnrtha Jilted him for a
greengrocer, whom she married secret
ly without letting her fiance know
what she was about to do.
I Walter's misery Was onlyveqnaled by
the Joy of his parents and his friends.
Now that It was all over between him
and Martha one of his intimate associ
ates made bold to express wonder
that he, nn artist, with an eye for .the
beautiful, should have attributed beau
ty to Martha.
I "Ah," exclaimed the unfortunate
man, "there is n loss to me as great
in my profession as is the wounding of
my feelings! Surely nil hope of my
succeeding in my profession has gone,
since I shall never find another model
suitable to my needs."
Walter left the brush and the palette
for awhile for other avocations. On
the walls of his room he hung the por
traits of the girl who had Jilted him.
and It seemed to his mother that the
case of her son's love had been made
worse instead of better. At last she
ventured to ask him for her sake to
put away his past and take hold of the
future. Walter loved his mother next
to the girl who had Jilted him, and she
finally persuaded him to let her hang
the pictures he worshiped In nn upper
room, receiving a promise from him
that he would visit it but once a
During the first half year after the
removal of his Idols Walter waited im
patiently for tho day of his visit to
them to come round. During the sec
ond half year he was less impatient
and at the end of twelve months told
his mother that she was right it would
be better that he should cease to dwell
on thnt which was dead to him. He
would visit his pictures no more.
Walter at this time mnde another
discovery that If he could not make
an artist of himself ho could succeed
at nothing. He resumed his painting
and Instead of confining himself to one
model chose different ones. In the case
of all of them he wns uninfluenced by
love. From the moment of this sec
ond start he met with Instant success.
Every picture ho painted wns sold as
soon as offered to the public, and It
wns not long before he nchleved a rep-'
utntlon which brought him high prices.
Walter's mother made a match for
him with a young lady of his own
class. She was not a beauty, but a
very estimable woman. Notwithstand
ing that her husband in marrying her
had yielded to his mother's wishes
considering his heart broken forever
he soon came to love his wife devoted
ly. After his parents' death he remov
ed with his family to the home they
had occupied and where be had been
born. One day his wife unlocked the
gallery of his former idols and saw the
walls covered with pictures of red
headed girls all looking alike and all
"Walter," she cried, "come up here!"
Wulter obeyed the summons and Join
ed his wife in tho gallery of pictures of
his former love.
"What are these?" asked his wife.
"They all seem to be portraits of the
Bame person."
Walter for the first time, looking at
the pictures 'he had made using Mar
tha Glbbs for his model, saw b, row of
hideous faces. His wife saw an ex
pression on his face of a sort of shame
he was unable to conoeal.
"They are ray earliest productions,"
he snld. "Plense have them removed.
I am too busy to attend to tho matter
Thnt wns the final vanishment of the
artist's dream.

In Loving Remembrance
Of Jennie Young, vho left us three
years ago, January 29, 1011 :
You are sleeping dear Jennie, where tlie
Soon around your grave will creep,
And we know that you are happy
In your everlasting sleep.
Precious Jennie she has left us
Left us, yes, forever more
Bui we hope to meet our loved one
On that bright and happy shore.
Lonely the house and sad the hours
Since our darling one has gone,
liut oh a brighter home than ours
In heaven is now her home.
Farewell, dear, but not forever
There w 111 be a glorious dawn.
We shall meet to part no never
On the Resurrection morn
Though thy darling form lies sleeping
In the cold and silent tomb.
Thou shalt have a glorious waking
When the Iilessed Lord doth come
Through all pain at times she'd smile,
a. smile of heavenly birth,
And when the angels called her home
She smiled farewell to earth.
Ueaven retalneth now our treasure,
Earth the lonely casket keeps,
And the sunbeams love to linger
Whers our saluted sister sleeps.
