A riOTHER'S LOVE. mother's love is so divine that the roughest man can not help but appre ciate it as the crown of womanhood. However, Mother hood is looked for wardto with feelings of great dread by al most all women. At such times a wom an is nervous, dys- -w A -v i ja. r V1 A ana she is in need of a uterine tonic and nervine, a strength builder to fit her for the ordeal. No matter how healthy or strong a woman may be she cannot help but be benefited by taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription to prepare for the event. This is what one mother says: "With a heart overflowing with gratitude I will endeavor to write you. It is nearly two years ago since I first wrote to you for advice regarding my health which was then very bad," writes Mrs. I. Poore, of Hinesdale, Ky., to Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief consulting surgeon of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo, N. Y. "I have described my sufferings in other letters to you. After receiving your advice and the Common Sense Medical Adviser ' I bought some of your ' Favorite Prescription,' and to-day am well woman and the proud mother of a dear little boy." Backed up by over a third of a century of remarkable cures, a record such as no other remedy for the diseases and weak nesses peculiar to women 'ever attained, the proprietors and makers of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel fully war ranted in offering to pay $500 in legal money of the United States, for any case of Xeucorrhea, Female Weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling of Womb which they cannot cure. All they ask is a fair and reasonable trial of their means of cure. Their financial responsibility is well known to every newspaper publisher and druggist in the United States, with most of whom they have done business for over a third of a century. How to live in health and happiness, is the general theme of Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical Adviser.

CONRAD RUBER Text Luke 18:914. And he (Jesus) spake this parable unto certain which trusted in them selves that they were righteous, and despised others. Two men went up into the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee, and the other a Publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself: God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are; ex tortioners, unjust, adulterers, or ev en as this Publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the Publican standing afar off would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying: God be merciful to me, a sinner. I 'tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased, and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. The parable of the Pharisee and the Publican is very familiar to ev ery Bible student. The reason why it was given by Christ is given in the 0th verse. There were certain who trusted in themselves that they were righteous pious, Godly people but despised others. Here is the key to the situation. The question arises from this : What is true Piety. Let us see whether we can find the right answer in this parable. It is a very import ant question. Our piety must stand the final test, and it is therefore of the greatest importance that I do not deceive myself, that you do not deceive yourself. These two men, let us understand, are given by Christ to represent classes, not individuals. Le us also bear in mind as we proceed in this consideratiaon that both these men were identified wTith the church. The Pharisee represents a leading class among the Jews, the orthodox party, they clamed all the rights to the kingdom, they carried the very keys to the kingdom. All the others must stand afar off. The publicans, on the other hand, were the outcasts. Willing to be the servants of the Bo man government, they were only hat ed the more by the Pharisees. But they were Jews, and hence members of the church. Our text therefore would deal Avith church members. By this we pre not to understand that you, my der friends, who have been standing aloof from the church, are not to learn an important lesson. Nay, the lessen to you is the more emphatic, for if the righteous scarcely be saved where shall the ungodly or the sin ner appear. But we come back to these two men, these two classes, and we want to learn from them what constitutes true piety. The Pharisee fully thought that he possessed all the qualifications necessary, and therefore we will look into his case and see what we can find. We notice first that there are some most excellent qualities in this man. 1st. He is a church goer. When it says: Two men went up to the tem ple, this Pharisee was one of them. He did not claim this piety without this very important exercise of church going. In our day, many of his followers think they have made great advancement on this point. They ean lead very godly lives, and be earnest and good Christians with out going to church. He made no such claim. Now let me be very candid and plain, my dear friends, on this important point. You , have 4uever found the case throughout the entire word of God of a true Christian who was not a church goer. Such a thing is an impossibility. When a person is able to go to the house of God, and will not, that shows that there is something radically wrong between him and his Heavenly Father. God knows whether we are able or not, and he judges accordingly. 2d. Then you will notice in the second place, that the purpose was a good. one. He went up into the tem ple to pray. That was verycommend able. Notice he did not go up to show his new cloak which he had gotten, nor to see how his neighbors were dressed. He did not co to display his millinery outfit. Nothing of the kind. It says: He went up to pray. He was not even drawn there by the elo nuence of some great preachers. There are no do.ubt, in our day, other reasons than for worship. That is, however, the pitrposo according to the teachings of God's word. It is wonderful how far we have depart ed from this purpose in our da v. How many inducements have to be thrown out in order to get together a little audience. Special music, a paid choir, and the preacher must an nounce some special matching subject in order to draw a few. Then the conveniences and comforts in the house of God must be of the very best. Now this man, though he was a Pharisee, went to pray, and he did pray. To be sure we do not want you to make his prayer your model. 3d. There I want you to notice in the third place another good quality in this man. He says: I fast twice in the week. He did more than the law required. According to the law he was only to fast once in the week, and he did it twice. Was not that commendable. Friend, how much do you fast, of how much. Jo you deny yourself in order to (show your love to God and man. Jesus says: He that will not deny himself, and take , up his cross and follow me, is not I worthy of me. That is what fasting j means for vis. It does not mean not . to eat of certain kinds of meat,in or ;der that we may eat of something else the more, it means a life of seli denial every day of our life, in order to show that we are followers of Jesus Christ. 4th. Then notice one more most excellent quality in this man. I give tithes of all that I possess. He did , not come empty handed into the tem ple. Even here he did more than the law required. Why it seems to me it hat this man's name ought to bo changed, instead of calling him a i Pharisee, he ought to be called a saint. Why, think of it, he gave not only the tenth of his income, but he gave the tenth of all that he pos sessed. If we had this kind of church members in Richmond, or any where else, the financial problems of the church of Jeseus Christ would be solved. The money question would never be mentioned. All we would need to do would be to give the peo ple an opportunity to bring from their Lord's treasury into God's house, and it would be the most joy ful thing that they could do in God's service, lusted of grumbling and fault finding, as is now so much the case, they would rejoice in the priv ilege to bring an offering for God's cause, whether for the work at home or abroad. I am quite sure that Al exander the coppersmith, who has been '1oinsr much harm, would be banished from the work of the churr-h. rnd the silver and goldsmith would lake his place. Our churches are livinsr on too low"a pns on' the ! matter of o-ivinsr. The srivinsr of the tenth is the lowest amount spoken of in the Scriptures, and yet there are thousnnds of so called christians who come far short of this amount. The Pharisee gave one tenth of all that lie possessed. The church must rise higher on this point, if she will do her God given work in the saving of the world. A e have looked unon Ihis I Pharisee, and examined his good qualities. Now if these qualities would be an index or proof of true piety, than this Pharisee, and all that belong to this class, could not be ex celled. And yet we find some things radically wrong in this man, and t'ie class of people he represents. Let us look at him again from another stand point, for we have not seen the re d man; we have only looked on the outward shell. It is not. all gold that glitters. What is wrong with this man. He seems to look so well, so healthy he has such a good appearance, that no one who looks upon him wo .1 j think that anything was the ma, er j witli him. But you just put your L.ir j to his heart, and you will find what is .wrong with him. The man's heart j is not right. He has heart disease. Well, to say the least, that is a ve.-y . dangerous and treacherous disease. I While we are all mortals and never I know what a day may bring forth, j yet when a person has heart trouble, ,he never knows what the next mo- t ment may have in store for him. Vhis Pharisee was sorely troubled with this disease. Let us diagnose his caso a little closer. "1st. He trusted in himself that he was righteous. What a revelation this makes. Trusted well, that i an f important thing in the Christian life We need to have faith, we need to j trust. But the difficulty with this .man was he trusted in himself.
