W THE DEAD?EA8TER LE880N.
LESSON TEXT?John 11:17-W, 41. 44.
1). (Bead 17 to 44).
- A GOLDEN TEXT?Jesus said unto her,
I T in the resurrection, and the life?John
1 This lesson occurred abont two
^ months before the crucifixion, Jesus
' oeing m tsethabara at the time of this
[call (See John 10:40; 1:28). There
'are fonr recorded cases of resurrec,
Hon from the dead: Jalrns' daughter
[ (Matt 9), the son of the widow of
' Naln (Luke 7), Lazarus, and also Jesus
after his crucifixion (John 20).
I. The Lesson of Unbelief. Bethany,
the home of Lazarns, Is on the southeastern
slope of Mt Olivet two miles
ifrom Jerusalem. Christ and his disciples
were on the east side of the Jow
dan, having been driven there by the
hostility of the Jews (John 10:31). Be
purposely delays his stay In that place
that this event might give an oppoi>
i tunlty for the manifestation of his
wonder-working power. This delay
k (was in face of his supernatural knowlB
edge that Lazarus' sickness had been
f fatal, for he said plainly to bis disciples,
"Lazarus Is dead." Philosophers
i nave often called death a sleep, but always
one from which there was no
awakening; hence the skepticism of
these sisters is not surprising. (1)
They limited the power of Jesus to his
! person?"If thou hadst been here." (2)
They aiso limited his power to a certain
place, "If thou hadst been here"
(v. 21).
II. The Lesson of Pain. The suffering
of these sisters produced sacrifice
| and self-devotion. Suffering brings
blessing to others. It Is also a means
|, of self-culture. Suffering drives us to
" | the Christ, and reveals to us the un|'
realized side of Christ's character
(T. 26). Jesus Is often never tnoro
A WlJ than when he seems to be leaBt
ftk kind. In the midst of her skeptlB
clsm and pain Jesus gave Martha a
new and glorious thought about the
| resurrection. "I am the resurrection
and the life." If we desire that, all
T we have to do Is to get Jcsiis himself
(I John 5:12). Resurrection has to
do with the body, nnd life has to do
! with the spirit (John 17:3). All will
ultimately experience resurrection, but
only those who believe on him receive
life (John .1:30). There Is a
resurrection of life and there Is a
resurrection of damnation (John
6:29). Martha answered, "Vca Lord,
I believe that thou art the Christ, the
Jfr* of God." It Is all-Important that
% should really believe that (John
20:31; I John 5:1-5).
111. Ths Lesson of Love. Love always
manifests Itself In deeds. Martha
secretly and quickly arose and
left the walling friends to go and
meet the wnltlng Master. "Tho Master
U come." He still coines, and
calls to us, and. If, like Marthu, wo
spring up gladly to meet him, he will
fill our lives with blessing and Joy. Je
us cume to tnese sisters Individually
(vv. 21, 28). lie hud entered the
danger zone In order to be there
(y. 8), and It was Thomas, the
iUabter, who wnnted to accompany
him (y. 18). ".Tesus wept," not with
the walling of professional mourners,
but with the silent, grief-stricken sisters.
IV. The Lesson of Power. .Tesus
had let natural causes work to their
' fullest extent. Coming to the tomb,
j ' Jesus said (y. 3D), "Take ye away
J the stone." It was four days after the
death of Lazarus before he came
i forth. Jesus was soon to die and
rise in three days after his entombment
The stone had to be removed
from the tomb of Lazarus; It rolled
itself away from the tomb of Christ
The restrictions which Christ placed
upon his exercise of power, viz., that
he allowed Lazarus to die, to be
burled, and his body to reach the
point of putrefaction, and not to coma
forth until Jesus himself. In his body,
was present at the tomb, emphasizes
the lesson of the restraint of power
, tor the glory of God. Out of such
extreme circumstances of seeming Impossibility
God manifested his glory
(Rom. 8:28).
Ijoiuwuiug xias given us n wondertally
Imaginative picture of his renewed
life on earth:
tad oft the man's soul springs into his
face
as if" he saw again and heard again
3s sage that bade him rise,
akd he did rise.
The effect of the miracle was twotold.
Many who were present bei
tiered on Jesus, others did not
Some went to the Pharisees to
relate what they had seen, only to
meet with rebuff.
The remainder of the chapter is occupied
with the plotting of the Pharli
sees against Jesus, and from this
grave there stretches the shadow of
a cross upon the path of Jesus.
. This miracle ranks next to Christ's
t own resnrrectlon as a demonstration
of Immortality.
Are we on resnrrectlon ground ?
Has the stone been rolled away?
The resurrection of Larnrus prores
that ur earthly existence Is only temporary,
that our real existence is
eternal.

* Two
fine Poland China sows were 1
shipped this way by rail last Thurs- .
day, says the Weston Free PreBS. '
They were sent by the Holly Storo Co.,
at Palmer, to the Mayton Lumber
Company, Pickens. The crates were
on a truck nt the U. & O. station from
the tlmo of the arrival of the IUch-!
wood train between 12 and 1, till the
Plck'ens iraln departed at 6 o'clock,
and the hogs, the combined weight of
which was 800 pounds, were seen, admired
and discussed by many people.
Speaking of hogs, Squire C. W. Talbott
sold a brood-Bow at the M. W.
Wetzel salo the first of last week, for
i Sal. The two aJiftve mentioned. If sold
I at 15 centB a pound would bring $120.
, The hog has never- stood so well in
| society as It does at this time, and,
; however paradoxical It reads, 'Us true
| notwithstanding, that the shorter its
i legs, the higher it stands, socially and
j commercially.
Wheeling is to have a girls' base- ]
ball league, to be composed of girls ,
| teams and a regular schedule of games.
I The old Jokes about the lack of Intelligence
on the part of girls where base-1 <
ball is concerned, will have to be rele-;
gated to the dust bin when the Y. W.
C. A. baseball teams got Into action, j
says the Telegraph of that town. Si* i
nines will compose the league, work \
in organizing the teams beginning at
once. The gameB will be played in-;
doors, but will be just as full of excite- {
ment as any outdoor game any male |
team ever played.

Despite the higher prices offered un-|
der contracts, a large number of the
coal operators in the Clarksburg mining
region, according to the Clarksburg |
Telegram, have decided not to make' e
contracts for their output the coming i j
year, but will handle their coal In the j,
i open market. This became known t
Monday, the first day of the year for
which large coal contracts are usually
made in the district and the day on
which all new contracts became effective.
The Btand of the operators will cause j t
consld?rahl? Innnnventenrn amontr a i s
number of large consumers of coal, i
who are experiencing considerable i
difficulty in arranging for their needs
for next year. The operators believe, by
Btaylng In the open market, they i
will reap advantages of further ad- )
vances In prices. J
The following is from the Weston 1
Free Press of this week: Today friends .]
of Levi Bond, Harrison county's "grand
old man," are assembled to celebrate,)
his 100th birthday anniversary at the '<j
Odd Fellows' Hall in the little town of J
Lost Creek where he has lived out a J
full century, On the 3d day of April, -j
1817, Mr. Bond was born, Just a mile *;
from what Is now Lost Creek station,
and at the point which aftewards be- ~
came the Milton Davis home, where e
Will E. Davis, Milton's son, now lives, r
Hie father was Abel Bond, Jr., who s
was born In Cecil county. Maryland, In S
1787, a year before the first flection c
of George Washington to the presi- g
dency. Tht mother of Levi Bond was g
Sarah Powers, who was reared on c
Hacker's creek, near Jane Lew. The :
father of Abel Bond, Jr., was an offi- ?

Abel Bond, who lives In Tennessee.! ?
Mentally, be Is surprisingly retentive, ?
