he was too short. The Bible tolls
us he was short of stature, that is
to Fy he was short from his feet up.
Many a man falls to see Jesus for
the reason of being too short. Some
are too short In their surrender.

their lives. They want to be saved,
bnt thev want to hold to their idols.

Zaccheus wanted to see Jesus so
badly that he was willing to do any
thing. Down the road was a tree
tSigrowing by the wayside. He decided
Ao climb the tree in order to see Je
sus It was very undignified for a
..man like him to climb a tree to say
the least. But ire laid aside his dig
-nity for the moment that he might
*ee Jesus. He climbed the tree and
jcrawled out on a limb.
He parted the branches and
watched for the coming of Jtftus.
And .whan the .Saviour came. uud
the tree he gated up and saw the
publican gasing down into his. face.
Then Zaccheus had the surprise of
his lite, for Jesus said, "Coafa dQwnt
Zaccheus. for I am coming to your
house today." The man up in the
tree did not ask him to wait till an
other more convenient time. He
didn't beg for more time to consider
the matter. No, sir, he came down
the tree in a hurry and,somewhere
between the limb and the ground he
found salvation and became a new
man. A

Moat Marriage* Japan Are
Contracted by Prof estional
Match Makers
Tokyo.'- (By Wfafl)The hard
times which struck Japan with great
suddenness recently had strange ef
fects, among them Intajg that of
sending many a fair Japanese damsel
put into the matrimonial market to
look for a husband who can support
her. In Japan marriages are con
tracted through professional, .match
makers to a far greater extent than
ft the case ,in other countries, and
these are now profiting oy the wind
which is blowing 111 for most other
people in Japan.
"Never before have we had as
many women applicants," said one
of the most prominent marriage
agents. "As a rule, our customers
are men looking for wives, but late
ly the old order has been reversed.
There may be other reasons, but we
who are in the business think that
the hard times are causing women to
seek safety by finding: htisbauds to
protect them There "are a number
of women of the better class among
our clients."
The Bureau of Statistics tells a,
similar tale. Its records show that
a tremendous Increase is taking place
in "the number of marriages recorded
during the past two months. A rath
er novel example of the steps taken
by young' women to 'find' helpmeet*"
Is found In the following advertise
ment in which a Japanese maiden
seeks to land a foreign husbanv.. It
reads: "Japanese young lady, aged
20, of best Samuari family, wishes
to break with old customs and tot
marry a foreigner. Willing to learn
English and to wear Western
^Another effect of the times is the
exodus of farmers' sons from the uni
versities and other institutions for
highen learning in Tokyo. These
young men are beipg called back to
the farms by their parents* who made
large sums durtugthe boom ana thus
felt able to give their sonagopd edu?
