Mart, xxvl, 10 Commentary Pre
parrd by lte-r. D. M. Steam*.
{Ccprriglit, 1906, by American Pre* Association.
Our lesson for today takes us back
several days In the order of tlie events,
for John tells ns that tlie supper aud
tile anointing at Bethany were six
days before the PassoTer (John ill, 1).
and the Passover is the lesson for next
week. Both Matthew and Mark tell
as that this anointing took place In
tlie house of Simon the leper, aud if
we cannot tell whether this Simou was
one of the lepers whose healing we
have an account of in the gospels or
whether he was the father of this fam
ily or the husband of Martha, and
whether he was at this time living or
not. we can wait till we see Martha and
Mary and Lazarus, and they will tell
ns all we need to know. They made
IJitn {Jesus) a supper (John xil, 2), and
He tells us that If we will open the
door to Him He will come in and
sup with us at any tim&. Martha
served, but she does not now seem to
be cumbered as on a former occasion
flAike x, 40). Serving meekly, cheer
fully and easily is truly Christlike, for
when at the Passover there was a
strife among the disciples as to who
should be the greatest Jesus said, "I
am among you as He that serveth"
(Luke xxii, 24-27), and He had that
same evening illustrated it by washing
thefr.feet and wiping them with the
towel wherewith lie was girded.
While at the table Mary took an ala
baster box of ointment of spikenard,
very precious, and broke the box and
poured the ointment on His head as
He sat at meat and anointed His feet
and wiped His feet with her hair, and
the house was filled with the odor of
the ointment (rerse 7 Mark xiv, 8
Jdhn'xii, 3). This was worship, whole
heavted devotion, true and costly. Some
one has said that in Martha's service.
Mary's worship and the risen life of
Lazarus we have a picture of a fully
rouuded Christian life such as a true
believer should live.
The beautiful scene Is marred by the
Indignation of the disciples aud espe
cially of Judas Iscariot. the treasurer
of the little company, who was a thief
and longed to have the money which
the ointment would bring if sold in the
bag for bis own use. It seems that ev
ery holy seene and holy thing is mar--|
red by some wretched display of self
in. some form or other. If we would
manifest the life of Jesus in these mor
tal bodies we must be ever denying the
e»Mf life and reckoning it crucified with
Him (II Cor. i\\ 11 Matt, xvi, 24).
Hov? comforting to Mary must have
been the words of Jesus: "Why trouble
yet. the woman? Let her alone. She
liath.wrought a good work upon Me." hr
lm I th.
Wliat a comfort these words should be
to many an earnest worker seeking
only to please Hi in. but frowned upon
by the powers that be, church digni
taries or officials, who know not the
Lord, or If they do know Him as their
Saviour from the wrath to come they
live more unto self than unto Him and
seek not His approval. How often I.
have been helped by these line^:
"Men may misjudge thy aim, think
they have cause for blame, say thou
art wrong. Hold on thy quiet way.
Christ is the Judge, not they. Fear
not. Be strong."
How beautiful His commendation,
''She hath (loue what she could"' (Mark
Xiv, 8). He gives us the ability and
only asks that we so minister (I Pet.
1t, 10, 111, doing as our hand finds, but
doing it with ail our might (I Sam. x,
7, margin Eccl. ix, 10). But. oh. how
few do what they canl The majority
of those who call themselves Christians
aeem to do as little as they can instead
of ns much ns they can. Here are
aoirie suggestive lines: "The restless
millions wait the light whose dawning
maketh all things new. Christ also
waits, but men are slow and late.
Have we done what we could? Have
I? Have you?" He who reads the
heart saw a motive and a purpose in
this act of Mary's which other eyes
saw not and other hearts did not even
think of. "She did it for my burial."
"She is come a forehand to anoint my
body io the burying." "Against the
day of my burying hath she kept this"
(verse 12 Mark xlv, 8 John xil. 7).
Kven Peter and John did not seem to
believe that lie would die and be
buried, although He had repeatedly
said it so plainly, and as to His rising
again the record says that they knew
nothing of it (John xx. 9). But this
woman who sat at His feet and heard
His word (Luke x, 8il) -that is. heard
it and received it meekly and laid It
to heart—she understood that cruel
hands would take Him and kill Him
and that neither she nor others would
be able then to minister to Him. So
she had obtained this costly ointment
and kept it and watched for the op
portunity which He now had put with
in her reach so graciously and which
Bhe so quickly seized.
If we had the anointed eyes and ears
aad the whole hearted devotion of
Mary of Bethany how we would buy
up the opportunities which He of II
Cbron. xvl, 9, would be sure to put in
our way! The other women who
bought spices after He died to anoint.
His body when the Sabbath should
be yast may have loved Him as much'
aa Mary did, but they were lacking inj
faith. They did not simply believe
what lie said. "Without faith It is
impossible to please Him" (Heb. xl, 6).|
What a worldwide memorial Maryun-'
consciously made for herself that day!(
The odor of that ointment not onlyi
filled fru.f house, but Is felt wherever,
tbe gospel Is proelanued. May His ove! ,t
New York, Oct. 27.—The Princess
and Empire styles are easily the first
favorlties, while the .shortened waist
line is becoming? more pronounced
every day of course, the modifica
tions that have taken place in these
models since the Empire renaissance
have made them much more graceful
and adapted to the needs of the day,
for the dress 1* nothing moVe than a
Princess rising to the bustllne. the
skirt is pretty close fitting for a true
Empire skirt and the costume is us
ually associated with boleros at di
ol re fittings.
Three example# df dinner dresses
were seen last week, to be used for
the restaurant dinner so fashionable
Just now. The first was made of pale
blue rrepe embroidered in roses. The
skirt was laid over with Alencon lace
over a lace underwaist, it was cut
lace and finished at the bottom by lit
tle bands of the velvet. The hat worn
with this costume was a crushed tur
ban of blue velvet.
The second gown was gray taffeta.
The loose bolero was finished off with
silk embroidery and tassels, cord and
ornaments of passementerie. The
blouse was of dotted tulle, and the
belt or girdle of black Duchess on
which was an embroidered design in
natural flower colors. A third and ex
ceeding handsome gown was of black
velvet cut in the new Princess-Km
pire style, that Is, an Empire skirt
that reaches to the bustline. It was
cut with nine gores and the seams
were outlined with fine cord arranged
In a small scroll patera. The blouse
was of cream Irish crochet and a
black brocaded little coat, that looked
like a mlneature directolre coat, gave
a trim and jaunty air to the whole
affair. The hat worn was a white felt
decorated with three long black
plumes and gold buckles.
An evning gown of white crepe de
chine had a lichu maile of heavy Irish
lace artd babv Irish borders. The
Bertha and half sleeve^ are of deli
cate tulle lace and the latter Is adorn
ed with a fichu and ruches. The belt
is of liberty velvet ornamented with
embroidery buttons, and the skirt is
also decorated with Japanese em
broidery in colors, and trimmed with
Irish lace and diagonal tucks. To wear
I over ,this was a Ions cloak of white
enamel cloth lined with, white liberty
•satin and ornamented with hands of
brown fur.
The sleeves, of many of the new ev
Jening gowns come half way down the
arms. Puffs are kept moderately
The cameo silks, soft lustrous and
changing with every move of the
wearer into new shades and colors
are complicated developments of the
shot slik idea and are gaining in fa
vor every day. And oil Iter for the
whole dress or a trimming they are
equally fashionable and are aids for
the two or three tone dress eo much
worn just now.
A pretty chiffon gown Ift grey
trimed with Baby Irish lace was de
veloped by a Princess model. The
gown mounted on a nine gored slip
foundation In which wis arranged a
yoke toped by a standing collar, un
less the neck is preferred open.' A
narrow shaped Bertha overlaps the
circular trimming bands that are
•sometimes used to outline the arm
holes. Sluiped puffs are used to form
the sleeves which are gathered at the
seams with only a small amount of
fullness at the bottom where it joins
the cuff. The tfront of the gown is
draped by shirrings at eac,h side of
the center-front seam, and the back'
is adjusted cloaely to the figure. An
undert'olded box-plait Is arranged be
low the back dosing. The plastron
was of all over lace and extended
from the Bertha to the lower edge, buty
when this is not used, a wide band of
lace, may be flatly applied at the low
er edge where the measurement is
about four yards and three-fourths
The long coat costume Is with num
bers of women a special favorite for
thorie to whom the tailored effects are
becoming. An exceedingly effective
costume of this order was developed
from brown diagonal cloth with vel
vet collar and cuffs of the same color.
The coat Is rendered close fitting by
means of darts and shoulder, under
arm and side-back seams, as wel las
the center seam that terminates above
a lap-covered vent in regulation coat
styles. A notched collar or shawl col-
„. ,llar facing forms a stylish neck finish

and buton holes, unless reversed cuffs
should be desired. The skirt Is a five
gored model and in round length
smoothly draped about the hips and
tailing with a alight graceful flare to
the feet. Many such skirts have plaits
box plaits or an inverted front and
back, others agin have a fan-plaited

A. garment that is almost lndespen
sable to the fashionable woman or
the woman of ordinary means, is the
long coat. It may be made of almost
any material from rhe coarse tweeds
to the more dressy matreials. Such a
garment was constructed from shad
ow-checked English tweed. The coat
Is shaped on simple lines with under
arm gores, shoulder seams, and also
seam at the center of the back, The
mode closes in double breasted style,
puffs formed by several big frills of! back in slightly. For service this gar-

off the edges of a sleeve Instead of
the lace frills which have been so
mnch worn of late And the return of
the long sleeve is working its way

Velvet which promises to',.be.,a fa
vored material for smart dresses this
coming season can now be procured
in the most beautiful and softest of
colors and such a finish has been giv
en to this material that It.Is for cere
nionius wear o most serviceable^
goods, moreover it is now free of the
disadvantage of weight heretofore
fell before the process of fhe chiffon
finish. It will be worn both for day
and evening wear. Soft silk and bro
cades- will also be worn. An exceed
ingly smart dinner gown is made of
amethyst velvet and was trimmed
with gray chinchilla. Many of the lat
est evening dresses are made with
skirts just resting an inch or so on'
the ground at the back and sides. No
long trains are worn. One costume
was created in apple green and rose
pink, and the trimlngs of the bodice
were composed of embroidery) also in
pink and groe.n.

A coat of this description^ was made
from a heavy quality Of rajah-bur
lingham lined with farmers' satin and
an interlining gave the necessary
warmth. The large hood was lined
with a plaid silk and ermine edged the
face. This same coat might have been
made more fancy by the adition of a
lace yoke edged with the ermine and
have dispensed with the hood.
Hoods are very fashionable ad
juncts just now because of the auto
mobile drives. Such a one was made
from plush and broadcloth with tin
ribbon. The front of the hood was
four box-plaits and the top, and over
which is placed a jaunty ribbon -bow

the oval shape back, a suitable ad

fulness at the neck is disposed of by
a few backward turning tucks. The
cape Is joined to the hood at the neck
and ribbon ties are used. For warmth

Too Hot for Cool Beer.
Hew York Sun: An unseemly con
flict. futile as it is unbecoming, has
arisen between two noted beer springs
of the land, St. Louis and Milwaukee.
A St. Louis visitor to the latter mart,
of German origin according to his
name, mote shame to him, declared
that Milwaukee beer was not cold
enough for him and explained that in
St. Louis the practice was to put a
bottlo of beer in cracked ice for an
hour before drinking it. That, of
course, is no indication that it is any
cooler when drunk, for in summer no
amount of ice, however cracked, can
lower St. Louis heat to that of the
rest of the United States.
