000 PEOPLE'S Sermon by CHARLES T. RUSSELL, Pastor Brooklyn Tabetnaclc. Norfolk, Va., Fcb. 13. Are tho worda of our tcst truo? Is lt posslblo that tho truo rcllglou of tho Blblo demands nothlng inoro of us than is cxprcsscd iu thls tcst? What about tho Jcw lsh Law? What about Us sln-offcrlng, lts burnt-ofCcrlng, lts thank-ollcrlngs? What about tho tcn commaudmcnts? AVhat about tho dlgcst of thoso com lnandmcnts approvcd by our Lord Jc sus, "Thou shalt lovo tho Lord tby God with all thy hoart, with all thy uilnd, with all thy bcing, with all thy strcngth; aud thou shalt lovo thy ncighbor as thyself"? What about Church attcndaucc? What about our rcsnonslbllltles to our fAtnlllcs? To thc ' Church? To tho poor? What about study of tho Blblo to know God's wlll? i What about our responslbtllty for thc hcathcu? What about baptlsm and tho Lord's supper? Indlrectly, dcar brcthrcn, nll tho matters lucludcd in our qucstlous aud iuany moro nrc lucludcd incidentally iu tho provlsions of our text. Somctlinos a wholo scrmou is proachcd in n fow words. No ouc will dlsputo tho rea sonablcncss of tho Dlvine rcqulrcnicut as statcd iu our text. Our Crcator could not justly or with self-respect ask lcss than thls of hls crcaturcs who would cnjoy hls favor. Tho lntcrcsts of all demaud that thcso priuclplcs should bo requlred of evcry crcature penulttcd thc cnjoyincnt of Dlviuo fa vor to tho cxtent of otcrnal llfo. Who evcr fails to coiue up to thcso condl tlons would thus ovidenco hls un worthlncss of llfo ctcrnnl; hls pro longed cxlstcucc would uierely bo a prospcrlug of slu aud a mcnaco to tho happincss aud rightcousness of othcrs. But uow lct us &eo tho scopo of thls Dlviiie requlreincnt, whoso justlco wc havo already acknowlcdgcd. Wc notc tho natural dlvlsiou of our text into thrco parts: (1) Dolng justly; (2) Ldving lucrcy; (3) Walking huiubly. Thc requlrcment of justico ln all our dealings with our fellows, commcuds itsclf to cvery ratlonal inlud. lt in cludcs tho wholo Law of God. A brlcf statcmcnt of that Law whlch bad our Lord's approval reads, Thou shalt lovo tho Lord thy God with all thy heart and all thy mlnd. all thy bclng aud all thy strcngth; and thou shalt lovo thy ncighbor as tbysclf. On thcso two proposlllons hang all thc Law and tho Prophcts. It is but Just that wc sbould rocognlze our Creator as flrst; that wo should glorify tho Ono who guvo us our belng aud all thc blcsslngs that como thcrewith; that wo should bo obediont to hls rightcous rcqulremeuts that makc for our own happlness and that of othcrs. lt ls also but rlght that wo shoulil recoguize tho rights of othcrs, ns we would havo thctu rccognlze our rights, Tho Goldcn Rule is tho barcst of jus- tlcc. Not a hair's breadth lcss would come within the rcquircmenls of our text, Do Justly. Come, then, lct us reason together. llow uiany of us do justly ln all of lifo's affalrs Iu our relatlonshlp to our God aud to our nelghbor? Begln at home. Lct each ono crltl- cise his words aud hls deeds toward hls parents; toward hls chlldreii; to wnrd his brothers; toward hls slsters; toward' husband; toward wlfe. Do wo In all of our rclatlousblps of llfo treat thcso who aro so near and so dear to us according to the standards of Jiisticc. according to tho Goldcn Itulo? Do we do toward thcm as we would havo thcm do toward us? If not, after niaklug a bcglnnlng with the Lord, s;rlvlng to rcndcr to hliu our homago and obcdlence, letuscloso ly scrutinlzo every word, overy act ol tho home llfo and sco to what cxtent thcso can be itnprovcd unon and madc moro ncarly Just. Thc- majority ol people. we fecl sure, wlll be surpriscd to know how tinjust they havo becn toward those who aro of the vcry nearest and dearcst of ileshly rclatlon shlps.

Or, on the other hand, io you ask of them hlgher priccs for the scrvlces or matcrlals you furulsh them than you would consider just and rlght lf you wero tho purchascr and they tho vcndcrs?

And St. 1'atil agrccs, say ing, "Wc cannot do tho thlngs whlch wo would." Tho Scrlpturcs ngaln ngroo aud dcclaro "Thero Is nono rlghtcous, uo, not ono. All liavo sln ucd and couio short of tho glory of Ood." What shall wo do? Shall wo say that becauso wo aro unablo to llvo up to our own conceptlons and stand ards of justlco wo wlll malto no at tcmpt to do so, but abandon thoso standards entlroly? God forbld. Wc nrc wcalc cnough and imporfcct cnough as lt ls. To Ignoro our bost Idcals of justico wotild bo to takc off nll tho brakcs aud ponnlt tho downward tend cncles of our dcpravcd naturcs to go rapidly from bad to worsc to carry us further and furthor from God and tho stnndnrds of character whlch ho ap provcs. Wc can surcly be contcnt to do nothlng lcss than our vcry bcst to llvo up to our own ldcals and to raiso thoso idcals ns ncarly ns posslblo to the Dlvine staudard. What Would Be the Uso? Supposo we do our vcry bcst dally to mcasuro up to our blghest coucep tions of our God-glveu idcals and standards, would God acccpt of thls and count us worthy of hls favor and of ctcrnnl llfo? Surcly not. Thc Law of the Lord is perfect. Justice is Justice. Not the hearcr of n law, uot tho wcll-wishlng. recelvcs tho rcward, but the doer, tho obediont! Ilcre, thcn, wo flnd ourselves ln dilHculty. With our hcarts, our mluds, wo approvo God's Law and deslro to bo obedlent to hiin, but llnd, as St. Paul says, that many thlngs wc wlsh to do wo fall to accompllsh; and mauy of tho thlngs wo do not wish to do wo cannot avold. "We cannot do the thlngs that we would." We approvo tho exccllent de mands of God's Law. We disapprovc tho imperfectlons of our own flesh Llko St. Paul, wo cry out. "O wretch- cd mau that I anil who shall dellvcr me from thls dead body?" thls body that ls imporfcct through lnhcritcd sln and wcaknesses. With our mlnds wo scrvo God's Law and approvo it; but with our bodies we come short. What is our hope? Ilow shall we be delivcred? Can we prevall upon God to chango tho reasonable requlrcment of our text so that it shall read, What doth God require of me but to will justly and do Iraperfcctly? We can not hope for such n chango lu the Dlvine Law. Arc we thou hopclcss as respects Dlvlno approval and eterual llfe? (Romans vil. 17-2-1.) The Gift of God Is Etcrnal Llfe. Iu our momcnt of perploxity we hear God's messago "speaking pence through Jesus Chrlst our Lord." The message of peace ls that what we could not do for ourselves ln the way of liftiug ourselves up to Dlvine ap proval God has provided shall bo done for us through our Lord Jesus Chrlst. Our fallure to koep the Law niarks us as unworthy of eterual llfe, aud worthy of tho wages of sln not eter ual tormenl. but death. God ln mercy concludcd to offer us etcrnal llfe as a glfl because of our not actually nierlb lng it under his legal requirements. Thus wo read, "The wages of sln Is death; but the glft of God is etcrnal llfo through Jesus Chrlst our Lord" (Romans vl. 23). What we could not obtain legally under the Dlvlno re quirements God proffcrs to us as a gift. But tho gift is a condltional ono as expressed ln tho words, "through Jesus Chrl.n our Lord." Only those who accept Jesus Chrlst as "the Way, the Truth, and tho Llfo" mny have God's gift of etcrnal llfo. Ilcnee it wlll bo sccn that lt ls wholly a mistake to supposc that thc hcathcu at home or abroad can get etcrnal llfe, tho glft 3f God, in lgnorance of Chrlst. All the Scriptures conflrm thls nnd declaro uot ouly that we cannot savo ourselves by obedicuce to the terms of God's Law, but that "thero ls none other namo un der heaven givcn among men, whereby we must be saved" through falth iu hls nnme through falth ln hls blood (Acts iv. 12). But how Is thls done justly? aud, why does God so llmlt hls glft of eter nal llfe? God's Law rcpresents hlinsclf and canuot chango. lle cannot requlre lcss than perfectlon. To do so would be to flll the Unlverso to all ctcrnity with dcpravcd and imperfcet belngs. God has a hlghcr plan than thls and dt clares, "As the heavens ure hlgher than the carth, so aro my ways hlgher than your ways" (Isaiah lv, 0). Ue cxplaliu that hls ulthnate purpose ls that thero shall bo n , imperfect creaturc ln all hls TJnlveriK All whose hcarts a: loyal to h-;u and tho princlples of hls govcrnment shall be pcrfcctcd, and nll others shall be dcstroycd in tho Sccond Death. Thus, eventually, evcry kneo shall bow and every tongue confcss to' the glory of God. Then every crcature whlch ls Iu hcavcn, nnd on thc carth, and under tho carth, shall bo hcard snylng, Blcsslng, and honor and glory and powcr bo uuto hlm that slttcth upon tbo throne, aud uuto tho Lamb forever (novelatlon v, 13). You Are Bought With a Prlce. Posslbly God could have nrrangod somo other wny of deallng with sln nnd slnners whlch would not havo ro- quircd tho death of Jesus ns tho Itan som prlce, tho purchase prlce, tho ro domptlon prlce for slnners. But tho fnct that tlils mcthod wns ndoptcd by our great Crcator nssurcs us that no Dther mcthod would havo becn so wisc, so just, so bencllclnl. No othei mcthod would have so fully dcinon- strated God's Wlsdom.

Tho angels on'the plalns of ncthlchcni dld not declaro to the shephcrds, Fear greatlyl for behold. wo bring you bad tldlngs of great inisery whlch shall bc unto all peot)le. Thclr messago was the revcrso of thls: "Fear not; behold. wo bring you gooil ildlmjs of great jo.v whlch shall bo unto all pcoplc" (Luke il, 10).

It may astonlsh somo that God re quircs oven moro than Justice. whlch is hls legal standard. ln hls perinls- sion of slu and lts wago of death ho has shown the slnner hls own morey or love. And lt is for the sinnor's bon eflt aud for tho good of nll, that Uod requlres that all who wlll have tho full bcnellt of his morey shall be rc qulrcd to cultlvate thls mercy quality lu their own hearts. As the slnner attempts to confonu hls llfe to tho perfect standard aud tlnds hhnself un ablo to koep God's Law and obllgcd lo como for mercy to the Throne of Grace. he Is luforiucd that he can havo that mercy only npou eondltlon tlnit ho wlll exorclse sluillnr mercy toward those who trespass agalnst hlm, hls idcals aud Iuterests.

How Much To Eat. Occasionaliy, sayf. an exchange, vo hear tho questlon "How much should wc eat?" Yet as a rule, tho averago per&on doca not troublc hlnv self very much on that scorc and cats what a pampcred appetlto de mands rather than tho amount ho ac tually nceds. Dietary speciallsts havo found from many expcrlments that an average man dolng avcrage work requircs each day about four and a half ounccs of porteid, two ounces of fat and slxteen ounces of carbohydrate. An average woman do lng tho work ot an averago house- keoper requlres n little lcss prob tiiiiy about threo ounces of porteid, ono and onc-half ounces of fat and twolve ounces o carbohydrate. The boy o fourtecn to slxteen years of age requlres four-fifths as much food as his fathcr, and tho boy or girl of twelvo years should have half as much food as an adult. Itecently ccrtaln sepciallsts nave becn abla to reduce the amount. of por.tcid stlll '.owcr than the abovc standards which are lcss tnan tr.oso glven ten or twelvo years ago. But as long as tho f.-csent hablt of'bolting" food with insufflcient mastlcation is common in thc country it is not safe to redu'jy - v" the amount of porteid (to the lovrt po?sibie flgure.

No matter how nutritlous and casy of digostlon foods may be in their uncooked state, they may be almost, if not entirely, nilned as far as dlgestion and assimilation are concerncd ln tho process of cooking. A single portion of beefsteak, two (gijs nnd an ounce of cheese, with m il; and a little oatmcal, wlll fur nish all the tissue bullding materlal thc avcrage man will require for one day.

PXEUMOMA WEATIIER. Poorly Ycntilnted Crowded I'Jaces Morc Pangtrotis Tlian Dauipncs-i and Cold. (New York Globe and Commerclal Advertiser.) The department of health of Chl cago has rccently issue da bulletin on "pneumonia wcather." "It is pneu monla weather," lt says, "not be causo of the cold or dampncss, but j by reason of tho foolish thlngs Ir. j causes epople to do." Some of the things that it suggests to put an eud i to pneumonia weather are thorougli ventllatloii, thc avoidanco of crowd- j ed and ill-ventllated cars, theatevs and halls, especlally when one ls i feeling languid, deprebaed or sick, and l'requent bathing. lt declares ! that rooms that seem "stuffy" when I entercd aro uusafo to remaln in; that fresh alr In rooms means econom.v In fuel for it is heated more easlly than stale alr; that a temperature of GS degrees Fahrenhelt Is moro heaUh- ' ful than hlgher if tho alr has suffl- ' clent molsture, nnd that one should remomber that pneumonia, lntluenza and other dlseases of tho respiratovy organs aro "catchlng," hence precau tlon should be taken when one niiist como in contact with those who suf- i fer from them. ! Our own and other departnients oi , health would do well to copy theso j suggestions and puhllsh them hroad- i east. For, after all, it must ho be- llevcd that health and slckuess aro lnrgely a matter of hablt; that, as the Chlcago health department maintains, "pneumonia weather" is caused moro by what we do than by what tho weather does. With Englishiuen the tnsto for frcsh alr is natlonnl. lt may bo superlnduced by tholr cllm ate, whlch Is moderate, knowing, a3 a rule, neither extrumes of heat nor cold.
