I no btuuy 01 me book or Acta is
complete onlesa the teacher Impreaaca
upon his pupils the opportunities for
living the Chrlstlnn lift In the normnl
environment of the home or school,
at work or piny. Deep interest attaches
to every detail leading up to
| Paul's visit to Rome. Therefore lei
the teacher trace Paul's journey from
I Hlletu to Jerusalem, which occupied
about four weeks, and took place In
the early part of the year A. D. 57.
1. The Arrival (w 17-26). The Spirit
revealed to the disciples and to prophets
that If Paul went to (his city he
would he In grout danger, and the
Spirit was not forbidding hut only
teaching him for he knew Pnul had
a great work to do In Jerusalem, and
0 that he only could do It. Everywhere
Paul went he "searched for" (v. 7)
disciples, with whom he tarried and
|b: whom he enlightened In the way ol
W' truth. Arriving In Jerusalem, he ap j
Kit, pears to have made his home with
'f: Una son, outside of the crowded city,
tbus being less exposed to danger and
r Boding a place of rest. At a public
fc reception (v. 18) Paul reports of hit
f- work, and no dotiht he lntd his strongemphasis
on what God had
wrought through htm, among the
churches of Asia. The lenders of the
Jerusalem church received the glftt
Paul brought from the Gentile
churches, glorified God for what he
Itad accomplished, hut saw elenrly
that, to accomplish his statesmanlike
purpose, something must be done to
make clear that the false reports as
to Pant's teaching were discredited
|(w. 20-22). They therefore resorted
(to diplomacy (w. 23-20). To the
many thousands of Jews gathered on
this festlvnl occasion In the city,
ome of whom were zealous for the
law, they declared first that Paul
taught all the Jews which were among
the Gentiles not to forsake Moses;
second, that he had not taught them
not to walk after the customs of
Moses. The facts were Paul obeyed
the Jewish ceremonial laws personit
ally, as a matter of race, not as a
condition of salvation.
S II. The Arrest (rr. 27-30). Panl's

I Sue servant of God !s sure to be misrepresented,
and It will not do always
to attempt to set straight all the lies
lliat are told about him. God will
Mke care of the lies and of our reputations.
Most of the charges that
men, even Christians, bring against
Me another arc based upon "supposition'*
(v. 29). It was not a new
experience for I'ntil to ho mobbed. As
(he maddened .Tews dragged him out
of the temple he must have recalled
th?& treatment of Stephen In which he,
himself, had hnd a hand (7:87, 88).
How freqnent It Is that we, ourselves,
M* In due time treated In the same
.Way In which we hnve treated others
'(Gal. 6:7). It was the intention of
the Jews to kill Paul at once without
B trial (26:0, 10). They fancied they
Were doing God's service (John 16:2).
This lesson Is a striking example of
the utter folly and wickedness of mob
law. Paul's time hod not yet come,
Bnd nil the mobs on earth could not
till him until God permitted It.
' III. The Arraignment (w. 87-40).
ridings of the riot came to the chief
aptain, equivalent to our colonel
(A'ets 23:26). Pnul was bound with
Wo chains, one from each of his arms
16. a soldier, secured, yet left free to
salk with his guards, thus fulfilling
the prophecy of Agabus (v. 21). Mobs
usually hnve great respect for solHers,
for they are Inwardly cowardly.
NTo sooner was-Paul on the stairs
prhlch led to the top of the fortress
than the mob, afraid thnt they were
kbout to be balked of their vengeance,
made a mad rush at him, with cries
bf "Kill him: kill him!" and Pnnl

[ Steady himself, was carried oft Ms
5/- .feet and hnrrled off In the same path
his Master had trod (John H):1K)
? and he was again to hear that cry.
P' tOh. 22:22). During all this tumult
.Paul had but one thought, how he
j&. might witness for his Master, and
bring some of his blinded accusers to
' a saving knowtedgp of Christ. Thus
ft was that he asked for the privilege
[j-- jf speaking, and most courteously did
W. he make his request. He spoke to
] he captain In the Greek tongue, not
L a Hebrew, and great was the surprise
Sj bf the captain.

WASHINGTON, D. C.. Sept. 8.? n
Henry S. Baker, of West Virginia, ap- p
pointed a member of the exclBe board s
by the President to succeed himself, F
over whose appointment war has been ti
waged by the Anti-saloon leaders of c
the Capital, will continue to hold of- p
flee as excise commissioner at least it
until next December, withstanding d
the fight which has been threatened
against his confirmation in the Sen- e
ate. c
Mr. Baker's nomination has been op- F
posed by the same senators who r
caused the rejection of Gen. Robert E
G. Smith, who was reappointed a n
member of the board by the President g
some months ago. Gen. Smith's nom- c
(nation was rejected after lnvestiga- r
tion and it was expected that Mr. Ba- v
ker's would also go by the board, gqw- tl
ever, the Senate committee has not
been able, through press of other matters,
to get a quorum together, and _
with the prospect of immediate aajournment
there is every reason to be- F
neve bum uummg win ue uone in tne r
matter until Congress meetB In Do n
cember. Mr. Baker formerly was a c
resident of Philadelphia and Is the p
uncle of Secretary of War. Baker. n
Congress' Labor Day gift to the tl
country was a bill passed providing t
for pay for Injured United States em- d
ployes. The day was celebrated by
both houses agreeing to the conference
report on the workmen's com- .
pendation bill, under which 500,000
government employes will be liberal- h
ly protected against disability. L
The bill provides two-thirds regular 1
pay to United States employes as s
long as they are disabled by injuries F
sustained in the line of duty. In case F
of death a'liberal allowance 1b made k
dependants. It is considered by 11
the Democratic sldo of both houses v
as the most liberal compensation act
ever passed anywhere and complete n
recognition ojr the government ot me s
principle that employers must tako s
care of their workmen disabled in .ue F
line of duty. u
The eleventh annual convention of v
the Brotherhood ot Maintenance ot 1'
Way Employes is in session this week
at the National Hotel with a large and h
interested numbers ot delegates in *
attendance. One hundred and eighty 11
threo delegates from all sections of
I he country have already registered
and others are expected today. The n
convention will be addressed today tl
by Samuel Oompers, Secretary of La- d
bor William B. Wilson and Miss Ber- s
nice Marshall, of Chicago, a member e
of the Republican National Speakers' c
bureau. 1
The republican campaign text book ?
