LESSON TEXT Matt. 22:15-22.
GOLDEN TEXT "They say unto Him,
Caesar's. Then said He unto them, ren
der therefore unto Caesar the things that
are Caesar's; and unto Qod the things
that are God's " Matt. 22-21 n. V.
The tltlo of this lesson suggests
more than tho portion of Scripture se
lected seems to warrant. We have
seen In previous lessons how the Mas
ter condemned and denounced the
rulers by his teaching In parables.
This led the Pharisees to take coun
sel how they might ensnare him (v.
15). Three questions were asked, one
political, one doctrinal and one ethi
cal. Our next lesson deals with the
third question.
Secret Methods.
I. The First Question, vv. 15-22.
This parable of the wicked husband
man (ch. 21) seems to have been
clearly understood by the Pharisees
Cv. 45). While It stung it did not
bring them to repentance The hard
ening effect of unaccepted truth Is one
of Its most terrible results upon the
human heart. The record tells us
plainly (ch. 21:46) why these Phari
sees w'ere withheld from at once put
ting Jesus out of the way. They
therefore resorted to secret methods
and endeavored to,bring him Into con
flict with the Roman government. Tho
Pharisees entered Into this plot to en
tangle Jesus with their most deter
mined enemies, the Herodian party
(Mark 12:13). It was a good scheme
from their viewpoint to get Jesus to
utter something treasonable and then
to turn him over to Herod, who was
a puppet of Rome. These Pharisees
scorned to pay taxes to this same gov
ernment with which they are now con
niving. They began with words of
smooth flattery (v. 16). The devil Is
never so subtile, so dangerous nor so
malicious as when he flatters. Apart
from Jesus each party would have
given quite a different reply to this
question. In fancy we can see them
as they must have gloatingly ex
claimed, "Now we will see him en
trapped." If Jesus declared It Illegal
to pay tribute to Caesar they could at
once formulate a charge of sedition
against him. On the other hand, for
him to declare It proper thus to pay
tribute to a foreign government would
seem to them for him to deny his mes
sianic claim, according to their under
standing of the messianic program.
Calling for a Roman denarius, a
Jegal taxpaylng coin worth about 17
cents, he aske'd, "Whose is this image
and superscription?" "Caesar's," they
reply, and by those words they have
caught themselves and not Jesus. His
reply was, in effect, "Very well, you
accept the money of Rome, you must
by that act accept the responsibility
which accompanies it." Jesus first of
all denounces their hypocrisy and then
exposes the folly of their question.
His Teaching Is Plain.
II. The Second Question, v. 23-33.
The rationalistic Sadducees, who did
not bolieve in the resurrection at all,
now try to entrap Jesus by question
ing him along the line of their particu
lar doctrine. The teaching of Jesus
Is plain and unequivocal as to the res
urrection of the body and the Immor
tality of the squl. Jesus seems in this
reply rather to Ignore tho first and
to strike at the second, which is more
fundamental. Their plan of attack
was very scholarly and philosophical
and was designed to show the absurd- j
lty of his teaching and thus by ridi
cule discredit his standing. It Is al-'
ways a favorite way for those who '
quibble to Imagine a suppositious case
and then to put a subtile question. In,
this case our Lord, by one sentence
demolished their well-planned attack.
"Ye do err, not knowing the Scrip
tures, nor tho power of Qod."
The Teaching. Jesus here shows ua
the true relation of himself and of his
people to political questions. Ho rec
ognizes the authority of human gov
ernment and it Is his will that his fol
lowers shall enjoy the liberties 'or ,
privileges which that government has
to offer; at the same time they are to '
nilfomft ttintnaolvAd in Ifra i-oniilramATitc, '
under one clearly stated condition,
viz., God's supreme will. In so far as
tho laws of the state are just and
true and In harmony with the law of
Qod it is the duty of Christian people
to support and to obey them. Jesus
would ally himself with neither party,
'thereby avoiding complicity with any
measure of evil. We may likewise
maintain a similar relationship with
Qod and speak with authority in the
correction of abuses, and In the direc
tion of civio and national life.
Wo have purposely included tho sec
ond question inasmuch as the next les
son concerns tho third of this group,
which ought to be studied as a whole.
Jesus was ever ready to meet any
question. He never equivocated, but
illfts hia answer out of the realm of
the controversial Into that of abiding
principles. Jesus denounced the hy
pocrisy of his assailants, condemned
their ignorance of the law they so
loudly professed to obey and pro
claimed1 at the same time the Immor
tality of the soul and the resurrection
of the body. He emphasizes man's
(responsibility to his government
Many Nations Who Left Indellblo
Mark on the World Found Heat
No Handicap,
There Is a great deal to bo said In
favor of tho protracted heat of tho
long-summered climates. One ought
to reflect that all tho civilizations of
antiquity flourished In tropical or sub
tropical regions. Egypt, Assyria,
Greece, Italy were countries whero
an unprecedented culture was attained
without the aid of artificial heating;
tho sun warmed them In summer and
tho people bore their chilblains as
well as they could in winter, without
remitting their exertions for an In
tellectual and iartIstlo uplift. Their
moral and religious condition left
something to bo desired, but with the
universal Bpread of ethical culturo the
lapse to any such condition in our
tlmo is scarcely to be feared for civi
lization in the hot countries of tho
western hemisphere. Our aborigines,
especially our prehistoric aborigines,
Instinctively wrought on tho lines of
antique empire and grew more aid
more enlightened as they avoided
Greenland on the north and Patagonia
on the south, perfecting themselves In
architecture and sculpture as they
went, till on the breathless plains and
among the volcanic mountains of Cen
tral America they left monuments sur
passing In beauty those of Egypt. At
least, this Is what travelers say; any
who doubt It may go and see for them
selves; and If we aro to trust the logic
of our weather reports they will prob
ably find themselves more secure from
sunstroke In Guatemala or Yucatan
than in eastern Massachusetts. W. D.
Howells, In Harper's Magazine.
The One Is to Be Discouraged Most
Strongly; the Other One of the
Best of Assets.
Thero Is a sort of prldo that lifts
a man to his true level and gives
him a power and prestige. It is pride
wiili respect behind it, pride with
enthusiasm as a part, and pride
flanked with a worthy record and
largo plans.
Unless you take pride In your work,
unless you glory In doing things that
count, unless there grows within you
a confident feeling that there Is an ac
cumulated reserve force and strength
of character through the working out
of the day's plans, there is lost to you
the thrill that puts you Into tho game
a continually happy man or woman.
Honest pride Is a vital assot.
You will never allow yourself to
do Inferior work if your pride remains
constantly sensitive.
Be too proud to be dishonest. Be
too proud to do less than your best.
Be too proud to place yourself on
the level with those whose life plans
are base or unworthy. Be too proud
to let a day pass without something
new learned or something helpful ac
complished. But banish false pride tho sort
that eats away your personal Inde
pendence and freedom, cramps you
and leaves you small and narrow In
mind. Bo what you aro openly and
frankly. Then you can match eyes
steadily with the strongest. Selected.
Men and Angels.
The Judge had listened wearily for
hours while many and eminent counsol
had wrangled on a single matter of
law. One member of counsel for tho
defense remarked that tho speculation
of the learned counsel for the prosecu
tion was as Idle as the medieval in
quiry into the question of how many
angels could stand on the point of a
"Well, gentlemen," remarked the
judge, taking notice, "so far as the
court is aware, that matter was never
settled by a decision. We do not know
how many angels can stand on a point
of a needle, but the court holds that
these proceedings here infallibly es
tablish the fact that a great many
mules can find a halting place on a
point of law." After that the case
moved on to a finish. ,
Fair Odds.
Judge Musgrove set up a leisurely
law ofllep in the town square in Tel
llco. It looked dignified to have his
name as counselor-at-law painted on
the door; besides, it provided a haven
whither he and his listeners could re
pair when the rain drove them from
the sidewalk in front of the Snedecor
house, and as a forum for the continua
tion of tho judge's memoirs of the war.
To allow a reasonable tlmo for din
ner, the Judge thought it well to adver
tise the fact that he would not bo in
from ten o'clock to one. So ho sent
Jim down to add this information to
the painted legend on the door. Jim
did It this way:
Ten to One he isn't in.
Not Much of a Bargain.
Lady Customer (pleasantly) "I hear
you are getting married today, Mr.

"Blind I"
"Stone blind, Roslyn Moore has been
for a year. It came about through the
premature explosion of a flashlight
while an operator was taking a view
of the studio in which he, Roslyn
Moore, had painted 'The Deluge."
"It must have broken his heart to
know, later, that his picture was fa
mous, but his eyes forever closed to
its beauties."
"No, he has been since the hour of
tho catastrophe Just what you see him
gentle, patient, smiling."
"Ah! It Is palhetlc," was tho re
sponse. "See how hd moves along."
The two speakers were Parisians,
In the Latin quarter. They were re
J gardlng and Bpeaklng of Roslyn Moore.
1 Their brief colloquy had told all the
story there was to tell. Roslyn Moore
had remained amid the scenes of the
student life he loved so well, although
he could no longer view its points of
interest nor scan the friendly faces of
his fellow bohomlans.
Just now, cane In hand, he was cau
tiously groping his way down the pave
ment leading away from the entrance
to his hotel.
, There was a little breathing spot of
a park a square further on. It was
here that Moore spent a portion of his
day, usually surrounded by the poor
children from the near tenements.
His pockets were always stocked with
sous and sweetmeats, and he held high
court with the romping, lovable group,
to whom he told stories and listened
to their Innocent prattle.
In order to reach the park Moore
had to cross a broad esplanade. At
its Inner edge a young girl of eighteen
kept a cheap flower stand. Pity that
he could not see Cecile, as her face
brightened at the first glimpse of himl
Rainy days were all gloom to her,
missing his accustomed approach
Now the deep eyes brightened, the
lovely cheek grew damask. She stood
all a-qulver as he halted, for some tele
pathio sense seemed to tell him she
was nearing him. Her small,' pretty
hand would steal shyly into his own.
She Watched From the Little Booth
Proudly, fiutteringly she would lead
him across Into the park and deliver
him into the guardianship of the glee
ful coterie of little ones awaiting him.
"Thanks, mademoiselle, you help to
make my life beautiful," always Moore
would say, but never an audible re-1
sponBe. Only a soft pressure of the
guiding hand, and then a flower.
Finally, for a week, Cecile missed
her friend. She grew pale and thin
and distressed. She watched from her
little booth hourly. Moore was gone,
and with hlra her sole Interest In life,
the sunshine, heaven!
There came to her the woman in
charge of the little hotel one day. She
placed a eoleau of gold pieces upon
tho counter of the flower stand.
"See, Cecile," she said, softly,k "the
maestro has gar" to see a wonderful
surgeon in London. He bade mo bring
you the money, and each day jou are
to 'take your daintiest blossoms to the
little ones. He left the word. too. It ,
was this: A kiss through me of hope, '
of courage, of gratitude," and the J
woman pressed her lips to the brow
of the pure, innocent girl.
And then one day oh, love Immor
tal! There came out from the en
trance of tho hotel the familiar form.
But there was no cane now. He
walked erect, his bearing that of some
knight, gladsome, In rhapsody with life
and all its message. A new glory
shone from the noble face, sightless
no longer. Straight up to the palpi
tating Cecile he advanced, botb hands
extended. And there he stood, silent,
motionless, while he gazed past those
beautiful eyes Into the very soul of
the lovely girl.
"Cecile! Cecile!" ho said softly at
length "to see you first, my dream,
my thought reeJlty I Come I am
yours, you are mine."
Her hand went tremulously to her
lips. In mute signal she motioned
that she was dumb.
"I knew It not until the day I wont
away," he said, the more fervently en
circling her dear hand. "And then I
knew how I loved her who loved me
blind, stricken, helpless. But your
eyes they speak, your bouI, It speaks I
Carlta how happy we shall be!
And so it was. There was a quiet
wedding In the little park that even
ing, with Roslyn's old loyal compan
ions In attendance.

Binoculars Reveal Pirates.
When John Ball, steward of tho
Echconer Eagle Wing, at anchor In tho
I '.aware river, off Cooper's Point,
Philadelphia, stood on the wharf and
swept the river with his binoculars
to pick out his vessel he discovered
rier pirates at work stripping her.
Ho appealed to the police tug and
that craft hurried to the side of tho
schooner. Half a dozen men who
were In a launch ulongslde the Eagle
Wing fled, but Henry Sels, who wa3
aboard tho vessel, was arrested and
locked up.
Sels is charged with disposing of
the schooner's property to tho pirates.
He declared himself to be one of the
crew, and contended that the goods
were his own. The steward, however,
told the police he had never seen the
man before and insisted upon his
Organ Notes From a Piano.
At a conversazione in tho rooms of
the Society of French Civil Engineers
in Paris, visiting British engineers
were Introduced to a new Invention of
two Frenchman, M. Maltre and M.
Martin, a piano in which the notes are
produced by tho wires being set In
vibration by an electro-magnet Instead
of being struck by hammers. The
mechanism is operated in the usual
way by a keyboard, but, Instead of
dying gradually away as they do with
ordinary piano notes, maintain their
volume as long as the key is pressed.
The effect produced is similar to that
of an organ, and makes of the piano an
entirely new and different Instrument.

Fortunate Is the man who knows
how to rest. To know how to take
a vacation Is not the least among the
gifts of living. Herbert Spencer told
us many year's ago that we lived too
fast. Carlyle's man who sings at hia
work is the exception. The man who
loves his labor works better, and, oth
er things equal, lives longer than the
man who worries with his work. Hon
