Copyright, 18D8, by the Author. Increasing popularity of tho lllofitrat ed lcctnre as a medium of education or entertainment has opened up two novel fields of labor iu which not a few wom en oro earning comfortable incomes namely, lantern slide painting and cam- I J" MISS KATIIERINE GORDON MEED. era operating. Indeed there !s scarcely a feature pertaining to the preparation of an illustrated lecture which is not within the province of the right woman. In choice of subject for general enter tainment woman demonstrates more originality than men, as a glance at both the professional and amateur lecturers now before the publio attests. Not only is she peculiarly adapted to execute ev ery detail in the preparation of this form of entertainment, but also in se curing engagements for the same. Women as managers of lecture and entertainment bureaus grow apace. The . latest : addition, is Miss Edith Pond, daughter .'of . the famous Major Pond, who has opened a bureau in New York. She was the originator of the musical recitation. The drawing power of the up to date illustrated lecture lies chiefly in the originality of illustrations. The demand for colored lantern slides has opened up a hew industry, which is largely filled by women. Large numbers are employ ed, some in the service of individuals, the majority in the employ of stereop tioou firms. Copies of engravings, pho tographs and woodcuts are photographed on the glass slides. t Tho slide painter then applies the color, only transparent pigments being used. Success lies in deftness of handling. It is very close work. Much is done under a magnifying glass. So exacting and critical has tho publio grown in this matter that women are now met in the galleries abroad copying the colors of the original pictures directly on to the lantern slides. Such is the method pursued by Miss Katharine Gordon Breed of Chicago, who spent months on the Mediterranean, in the orient and in Yellowstone park. The beautiful results of her skill never fail to elicit applause iu Mr. E. Burton Holmes' lectures. Miss Breed, v.iao la an accomplished and widely traveled young woman, dropped accidentally into this lino of work. Her uncle, Dr. David Breed, a water color artist, discovered a secret process which made possible great ad vance in the artistic value of elide painting. To him Miss Breed owes her skill. She Is a distant relative of the veteran stereopticon lecturer Mr. John II. Stoddard. It takes a skilled lantern slide painter from half an hour to three hours to paint a single slide. One of the most expert woman slide painters tolls me that despite steady application she is rarely able to earn $4 a day. The employer pays a stipulated price for each slide, which is of course much lees than he charges the purchaser. In this, as in all other breadwinningwork, remuneration depends on skill, supply and demand. Women who have worked in decora tive lines are drifting naturally into elide painting. As a rule, the work con tinues steady throughout the year. Tho popularity of the illustrated song in vaudeville and roof garden entertain I MISS EDITH POND. tnentskept every skilled slide' painter in New York busy last summer. One little woman told me that she worked day and night, not exoepting Sundays, throughout the hottest weather. The wonderful development and rapid tpread of the camera, especially for pio torlal entortainment, has given rise to the professional oporator. There are six toen in New York who give their time to it exclusively. As yet no woman has toade it an exclusive profession, al though the occasional operator Is wet tvery side, TherVi bo reason why 35E Th n,flDd " native caning.

Aside from the mechanical, natural quickness, deft oes and artistio feeling are paramount to good renulta. Theso qualities are pre eminently feminine. On the operator's intelligence, quickness of touch, sym patny and artistio temperament the lee turer is almost wholly dependent for the smoothness of the performance The operator is to tho lecturer what the ac companiment ia to the singer. Equipment and time considered, the pay is liberal, Rarely does a locture ex tend overly hours. A good operator commands from $8 to $10 an evening within city limits. He furnishes his own camera, goes to the place of enter tainment in advance, adjusts screens and has everything in readiness for the lecturer. Debarring physical strength and mechanical skill eometimes requir cd in the adjustment of screens, ban dling of gas tanks, the operation of the camera seems particularly suitable work to a woman.

LESSON III, SECOND QUARTER, INTER NATIONAL SERIES, APRIL 17. Text of the Leuon, Math. t!1. 1-0 Mem ory Verses, 1-3 Gulden Text. John 1, 14 Commentary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. ICopyrlght. 1898. by D. M. Stearns. 1. "And after six days Jesus taketh Pe ter, .Tames and John, his brother, and brlngeth them up Into an high mountain apart." Luke says, "About an eight days after thotio sayings" (Luke lx, 28), doubt Ices Including tho day of tho promise and tho day of tho event, whilo Matthew and Mark only mention tho Intervening days. Mark says, "Ho takcth and lendoth them." How very beautiful ! Does not your heart say, "Lord take mo and load me, and I'll go with Thoo all tho way?" Well, bo sure that you mean it, and do not question Ills lovo if Ho leads you In tho valley. Thcso three were with Him when Ho raised the lltjlo girl and when He was In the garden. Wo cannot go with Him unless we aro willing to go apart from tho many who follow Him, and we will not enjoy Ilia fellowship unless we have something of His spirit of prayer, for Luke lx, 28, says that He went to pray. As we learn to live alone with Him and for Him, we will find ourselves Increasingly given to communion with Him. 8. "And was transfigured before thorn, and Ills face did shine as tho sun, and His ralmont was whlto as the light. " Mark says that Ills raiment became shining, ex ceeding white as snow. Luke says that tho fashion of His countcnanco was altered and Ills rulment was white and glistering (Mark lx, 8; Luke lx, 29). It makes one think of Him as lie afterward appeared to John on Patmos some 60 years after Ills ascension (Ilov. i, 13-17). It Is to me very interesting to observe that the word trans lated "transfigured" is used outside of this record In tho gospels only in two other places Rom. xii, 2, and II Cor. Ill, 18. In tho one the translation is "be trans formed" and in the other "are changed," but in each case it refers to the believer and our being changed more and more in to the image of Christ .In Romans It is shown to be a work from within, by the renewing of our minds, and In Corinthi ans it is said to be accomplished by behold lng His glory in the glass or mirror of Ills word. It seems to me that the beginning and development and consummation of the Christian life has but one secret, and that Is "beholding Him." ... When In that fair morning we shall lndood see Illm, then we shall indeed be like Illm. 8. "And, behold, there appeared untc them Moses and Ellas, talking with Him. " We know that Moses died and was burled in the land of Moab (Dcut. xxxlv, 5, 6), over 1,400 years before this, and Elijah was taken to heaven in a whirlwind and probably In the chariot over 800 years be fore, the only man except Enoch who has as yet ever been excused from the appoint ment of death (Hcb. lx, 27). Yet here they are alive and well and talking with Christ of Ills death, or decease, or exodus, which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem (Luke lx, 81). Whether tho believer dies or Is translated, in either caso it means Instantly with the Lord in such a llfo and such bliss as wo cannot Imagine (Phil. 1, 21, 23; ill, 20, 21), but all the blessedness and reality of that llfo are wholly duo to tho work which our Lord Jesus finished on Calvary. 4. "Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be hero. If Thou wilt, let us make here throe tab ernacles ono for Thee, and one for Moses, and ono for Ellas." I think we may con clude from Judo lx that Moses had his res urrection body. If so, then ho represented tho risen saints, while Elijah represented those who will not die, but bo translated at our Lord's coming, tho two representing tho wholo heavenly company of the re deemed in tho kingdom when it shall havo come, while Peter, James and John, three righteous Jews, represent' all Israel, a righteous nation on earth in the king dom, and this revelation is what our Lord promised in chapter xvi, 23. 6. "Whilo ho yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and, behold, a volco out of the cloud, which said, This Is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear ye Him." Ho Is the truo tabernacle and templo and pillar of cloud. Ho is tho fulfillment of all that Moses was to Israel or wrote for them. He is tho end of the law for righteousness to every ono that bclloveth. He Is tho Prophet of all prophets, tho Messcngorof Ood as nono other ever was or can be, and God said to Moses concerning Him, "Whosoever will not hearken , unto My words, which He shall speak in My name, I will require It of him" (Deut. xvlll, 18, 19). This Is the second time that the Father testified from heaven as to Ills delight in His Son, but now He adds the command, "Hear ye Him. " We are not to hear what men think or say about Him, but to hear Him, and that is to hear Ood nimself, for the Fa ther told Him what to say (John xil, 40). 6, 7. "And when the disciples heard it they fell on their faco and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched them and said, Arise and be not afraid. " So He or His angol did to Daniel, and He Himself surely did to John on Patmos (Dan. vlii, 18; x, 8, 18; Rev. i, 17). He gives His people no cause to fear. .Why Is it that we have so many fears? j How we must grieve Him I He says that no will never remem ber our sins. It shows groat, lack of con fidence in Him for us to fear or to think that He will. He says that we are blosaod with all spiritual blessings in Him. It if surely dishonoring to Him for us to ques tion it He tells us that since He so loved us as to give Himself for us Ho can thcro foro withhold no good thing. Faith just believes it, and Is happy because He says so. a "And when they had lifted up their eyes they saw no man save Jesus only." What a powerful life word this is, and what peace and victory to see Jesus only In redemption, and In sanctificatlon, as wo will boo Jesus only as tho center of all tho glory of heaven I In redemption and dally llfo our temptation is to seo feelings and experiences and people, but thus there is no rest Wo must seo that His finished work Is all that Ood asks and that we need, and His word all tho assurance that Is necessary, and learn to sing always "Behold, God Is my salvation," 9. "And as they came down from tho mountain Jesus chargod them, saying, Tell tho vision to no man until tho iron of Man bo risen again from tho dead. " Even if we may not fully understand, we may bo suro that there was somo very good reason for this charge (Ezck. xiv, 23). It Is not always for us to understand, but al ways to obey (Isa 1, 10). The ot her dis ciples at tho foot of tho mount with their difficulty la suggestive of many difficulties that shall not be solved till lie shall come; but more faith might solvo mom Mean time wo must pay taxes cheerfully lest we give offense.
