Among all'the figure which loom out of the word of Jesu with a per manent Interest for us there Is none that I more significant than the sow er who went forth to sow. Arros the Held of Imagination thla toiler ever passes, never rest. With hi bag upon hi shoulder, his arm forever sweeping the half-circle as he walk, and the seed forever falling from hi hand, he I sllhouted against the hori zon of the world. He Incarnate a principal. He personifies a process. He fixe In the thought of man the way of God. Uphold a ower went forth to sow. That was his task. He did not make the soil on which hi seed fell. He aaw the rocks, the thorns, the thin soil and the hard soil. He knew that much of hi seed would never fructify. He saw the birds as they picked up the kernels after him.. Perhaps he even thought the bird had a right to a share. Of course he understood that sun and rain would try the tender plants. . He also understood that the harvest wa on the other side of summer. He need ed not to be told that he must wait, and that hi seed must take Its chances with all the vicissitude of seasons and weather. Believed In th Earth. But he trusted nature. In spile of stones and thorns and thin soil and hard soil, he believed In the earth. He believed enough to act. He was not one of those who wait that they may serve. He took his promise from creation. Heneath the variation of the day and night he felt the thrill of spring. He rested In tbe deeper processes. He had faith that all the' world would change beneath the ec centricities of wind and shower and heat and light. And so he sowed. And so he went forth to sow, seeking tbe soil In which to cast hi prophe cies of future Increase. For all seed sowing Is prophecy,- and all seed sower are seer who bide their time In the promises of life. If there were more prophet there would be more eed-sowlng In the world. And tf there were more who understood the law of Increase as it works every where there would he fewer foolish queetlons asked of those who sow the seed. For those who demand harvest before the seed has time to sprout and grow are spiritually near-sighted.. The noblest symbol of great faith la one who dare to go forth unquestion ing, scattering seeds of truth, and right and peace and love, knowing; that ston.es and thorns and unrespon sive soil are there, yet also knowing that the earth Is the Lord's, that some how seedtime and harvest are insep arable, and tbat when the summer is past the reaper will surely flr.d fields of ripening grain where he sowed hi seed. Universalis! Leader. MESSAGE HARD TO INTERPRET Commentator Differ a to the "Wom an Jezebel" In the Third Chap ter of Revelation. A to the message to the church In Thyatlra, lu tbe third chapter of the book of Revelation, it Is an obscure and difficult one to Interpret, since we know so little of the prevalent cus toms and heresies of that timo. Com mentators differ us to the "woman Jezebel," some claiming that she was a heathen priestess, who stood for all manner of licentious rites and evil practices, and others that she was the leader of the Nlcolaltans, a division of the church that claimed to be none the less Christian because it tolerated some heathen customs, like eating meat offered to ldijs, offering incense to the statue of the emperor. Joining social clubs, which were numerous In those days, and which often fostered much debauchery and even licentious ness. Many of these clubs were con nected with the trada guilds, and on this account Thyatlra. which was fa mous for these guilds, offered special temptations to the Christians who be longed to these guilds, to condone. even if they- did uot approve, the un christian practice of many of the member. The praise accorded in th first part of tbe message to tbe church of Thy atlra seems to give color to this Inter pretatlon, for the Sou of God himself says: "I know thy work, and love, and service, and faith, and that tby last works are mors than the UrsL" It ta thought by many that th Nl- colaitan. though their doctrine were wrong, and their complaisance townrd the practices of their beatbeu neigh bors was most dangerous, yet were till active In good work, and - per haps vied with their stricter and mor kuritanical church members In acts of benevcleuce and subscriptions to all good cause to that the "last work were more than the, first." Calmest Psopl Accomplish Most. To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under th heaven. Eccl. 3:1. The people In all line of duty who do tbe most work are tbe culmest, most unhurried people In tbe com munity. Duties never wildly chas each other In their Uvea One task never turn another out. nor ever compels hurried, and therefore Imper fect, doing. Tbe calm spirit work methodically, dolug on thiaj at time, and doing It well, and it there for work swiftly, though nvr ap pearing to be la baste. J. R. Miller.
