A SCHOLARLY SUNDAY SERMON BY THE REV. M. L. EURTON, PH. D. Theme: Jesus as Trophet. Brooklyn, N. Y, For the union services of the churches . on the Heights, the preacher Sunday was the Rev. Marion Leroy Burton, Ph.D., pastor-elect of the Church of the Pil grims. His suh.'ect was "Jesus the Prophet." He selected his text from Matthew 21:10-11: "Adwhen He as come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the Prophet of Nazareth of Galilee." Dr. Burton said in substance: The central question of all this In Christian life is, how does Jesus save us; how are we to profit by Christ's fe? It is impossible in this short "me to answer but one phase of 'the three which our Saviour lived, as Prophet, Priest and King. Yet each conveys it3 part cf truth upon a pro per concept of His holy life.

Your fellow townsman E.A.HUGHES representative. Give us a trial. Is President, Jesus has taught the world the terri ble consequences which are to follow our wrongdoing, that the man who sins will condone it by suffering. He has told of the penalties of sin. He who. deceives the little one had better' tie a millstone about his neck and perish in the sea. What awful penal ties that follow the sinner! But not alone has Jesus revealed to us God's attitude toward sin, but in the second instance He has reveaterlGod, through Himself, and has shown His manifc'd purposes of our destiny. Let us study, the character and life of Jesus and we shall see that He has revealed God to us and shown His clemency and patience. Why. was it. the multitude followed Him? . Be cause they took Him for a prophet? It is not that alone, but because of Hia magnetic personality, which at tracted all to Him and made H-im be loved of all men. No wonxfer the twelve disciples canre at His call and served Him with true love and faith". It was not confined to this inner cir cle, however, that Jesus attracted men about Him by His wonderful per sonage. Nicodemus came t6 Jesus. The centurion was wont to seek Him out for counsel. The multitude list ened to His words of wisdom. He was a friend of the publican and din ner. At. the day of the feast the Greeks came and said, "We would see Jesus." He spoke in infinite love and drew all to Him. He sought to lead them through (the paths of His truth and to teach them quietly, sincerely, of life and their salvation. HoV mar velous and how perfect that He should lead men toward the truth and a bet ter and less cinful life. Witness Him teaching the multitude to the path ways of truth and see Him carry them to His Word. He knew that much of His teachings fell on barren soil and took no root, but He was patient with His people. Oh, the beauty and pa thos of the parting with His disci ples! " It passes all understanding. It was . a crisis in ; the life of Jesus. He taught them the truth, and He led them out in vital existence. - Teaching the people, Jesus was pa tient at all times. Even the same twelve men who gathered at His call to preach the Gospel to the world of ten forgot Hia4eaehing of the; Word; On the way to the Last Supper they quarreled among themselves", as to who was the greatest among them. But Jtle was patient and forgave them. more. un, tne mnnitfi love ana for giveness of the Master! Then Jesus tells of theProdigal Son and shows that forgiveness with the Father : is possible. vV Peter rsinned three '- times, and Jesus forgave him. And. no alone has 4He forgiven the' sinners; but the marvelous ..basis for our won der is that He suffered to save them. Jesus 'was willing to suffer for His truth, so that His attitude toward God and men might be recognized as the true way. These characteristics of the life of oijr Master reveal God's attitude to ward us and His purpose in' infinite love. Jesus has said that Godjs only .uui i " ch'SnTnSK1-!, J ; : f?"?5?t?s:Lco"!nt eonsrvotro banklnfl. saciSiieQ-lo save. men. lie would have 12 us. know the ;eernal, verities of lifp Did Jesus forgive? Then, it is in God's will that He forgive the repent ant. Did Jesus love? Then, God loves His servants and has patience with them! Did Jesus suffer? Then, in God is the heart of suffering. Jesus Is all that God is in infinite love. Who hath seen Jesus hath seen God. - Oh, the glorious wisdom of .Him who hath seen God! Jestls was a prophet not oniy 'in telling us of God's attitude -toward sin, with clear positiveness, but He also was a prophet in regard to our selves. ' He tells us what God is in all His glory. and He tells us what man is, what we are ourselves. Jesus is the ideal type. "The critics ' pass Him by. In His almighty wisdom, we see thovr ignorant we are. In His holi ness, with its overpowering glory, we observe how sinful, how mean. -how low we are. Study Jesus' life 'and araw out irom ytfu as you Know your selves to be. How small, infinltesl mally small, do you seem! He has been a prophet, for He has shown how small we are. Two sides, the dark and the light, jjesua T has shown us, but He has not alone given, us view to 'the dark side by. showing us our 3mallness. He has also brought up the light side and with full hopeful ness not only tells us how small we' are, but shows us our largeness. He tells us of the power and potentiali ties within us. ""Ye, therefore, shall be perfect in love." You are a sin ner, but you may be a son of God. Jesus is glorious as a prophet of God, for He tells us how it may be If we live as He lived. Not only a prophet of God and menJesus sought to expand the rev-, elation of God, and beneath it all, with prophetic note, gave the ideal re lationship of life, that of father and son. Did time permit we could con sider the many lights between God and man. Jesus came and in His ear lier years lived in simple communion with His Father, before He gathered about Him His twelve disciples. He prayed in the mountains and prayed for. the forgiveness of the sins of the world. He set the right relation be tween Son and the Father a per sonal relationship. He never lost hope in all His suffering, but trusted In His Father. In His life He would tell us that the infinite relation is that of-Father and Son. - " Not only would Jesus teach us. the Ideal relationship between God and men, but He lived the life between man and man. Should we follow the precepts of Jesus, this relation of man to man would be one of sacred example. Follow the "teachings of Jesus and get all the power and po tentiality that is in you. Develop self by developing others. Find life by losing it. It will be a victory for self, the inner self. By the Word of God we are one, or-non-existent. Jesus tells us of God's relationship. How can any one ask, knowing thesa things and God's relationship to man, how He effects our salvation? Can any one be convinced and say, "Can Jesus save Me?" He demands of us our love. He demands that we follow Jesus and do what He did. He demands that we follow Him as Jesus did and secure salvation by His for giveness. We know that the penal ties of sin are awful, for Jesus has so taught us. The truth that I am small He has Impressed upon me, but that I am to become larger through hope and forgiveness I know through His word. Jesus calls upon us to be prophets in His name. We can -take His teachings throughout life, but we do not follow them. That is not rec ognition of the word. He has done His part and we should do. ours. He cannot" make us or we would, not be personmlities. 1 .. Jesus said to the multitude, Chris tians, follow Me, and as the apostles, they left and-, followed Him.:. Jesus calls us up from our worship of gold and the money gods which we serve. He called txrth"e people, love Me more, and they worshiped Him. He calls to us, love Me more. By Thy mercy we will hear Thy call and will serve Thee by love and service best of all. '.THE. .PUMPKIN. ' For aH general uses the pumpkin Is dryer and sw;eeter baked.

But the : electorate still "reserves to itself the . right of approval, and the new minister, after he has accepted office, -but before" he can take his- seat in trie .house' of commons as a minister of the crown, must have the assent of his constituents. ' Curiously enough and this is inter esting, as showing how the English people-clings to tradition there is no provision made for the resignation of ' a member of parliament and the only, way in which he can resign "is for him : to accept an office ofprofit and tust under the government and decline re election.

If they , have short pasturage in the fall and come to the barn thin in flesh' and are theft fed well they are apt to begin to shed, wool in winter, while if winter forage is poor or scanty and spring pasturage good, shedding is likely to begin before shearing .time. Keep them, in a good, thrifty condition at Jail seasons, even if it is necessary to ..feed grain to do so Another cause -may be overcrowding in the shed keeping them too warm at night. Al low at least ten square feet ' of shed room to each shap; of small breeds, and from twelve to fifteen fcr tho larger breeds --. Even more frequently the cause may be - the manure under them fermenting and heating as it is liable to do if it is allowed to get wet." It ' would be well to clean out the shed : late in the., fall, again t midwinter, and early in the spring. and between1 these times keep plenty of - clean -dry, bedding '. tinder, them; This. will increase the value of the manure even more than it does the bulk as the liquid manure is jich and needs an absorbent.
