Th Later Pentecost Will Be for the World in General —It Will Come Through Messiah's Kingdom Operat ing Through Israel Restored to Di vine Favor—lt Will Be Earth's Jubi lee of a Thousand Years of Blessed Uplifting and Restitution to All the Willing and Obedient of Adam's Re deemed Race—The First Pentecost Brought Blessing Merely to the Church and Has Nearly Completed Its Intended Work. ip —Brooklyn, N. Y., June 4. Pastor Russell continues t° draw the lar gest audiences of / any preacher In the world to his oral addresses, be |M| sides the millions -vvho weekly read the printed reports of his discourses in the newspapers of the English speaking world. Today’s audience at the Brooklyn Academy of Music was estimated at tweuty-slx hundred. Of these about three hundred, all men. were on the platform behind the speaker. Late comers failed altogeth er to gain admittance to the after noon service. The text was appropri ate for Whitsunday, It being St Pe ter’s explanation of the Pentecostal blessing—“ This Is that which was spoken by the mouth of the Prophet Joel” (Acts li, IG-18). The speaker called attention to the fact that the Prophet Joel mentions two distinct outpourings of the Holy Spirit One of these, upon the serv ants and handmaidens of the Lord, found its fulfilment at Pentecost; and during the more than eighteen centu ries since, God’s spiritual blessing has been with, not only the Apostles, but all the footstep-followers of Jesus—all of God’s servants and handmaidens, St Peter’s statement “This is that which was spoken by the mouth of the Prophet Joel,” Pastor Russell said should not be taken to mean that what was witnessed In the upper room on the Day of Pentecost nearly nineteen centuries ago completely fulfilled the Prophet Joel's predictions. None, he said, would dispute that the fulfilment of Joel’s prophecy began at Pentecost, with the early Church, and has been In progress of fulfilment during all the centuries since. these days of the Gospel Age— after these days of the outpouring of the Spirit upon God’s servants and handmaidens —will come the glorious Epoch of Messiah’s Kingdom, in and through which God will pour out upon the world of mankind a great bless ing of enlightenment and uplift from the ski and death conditions now pre vailing. It will be to the accomplish ment of this end that Satan shall be bound for a thousand years, and the darkness, which now covers the earth and the gross darkness which now blinds the heathen, will be chased away by the glorious “Sun of Right eousness with healing in His beams.” Abraham's Spiritual Seed First. Abraham of old typified Jehovah, and Isaac typified Messiah, born not after the flesh, but after the Spirit— by a special Divine Interposition—ac cording to God’s promise. Of this An tltypical Isaac class, Jesus is the Head, the Forerunner of the Church, as well as the world’s Redeemer. The Body of Messiah is composed of a saintly few, according to the Scrip tures, gathered, primarily, from the Jews, but being completed by addi tions from every nation, people, kin dred and tongue. This Church class, or Messiah class, is variously referred to in the proph ecies as well as in the New Testament, as the “brethren” of Jesus, and as “sons of God.” The world knoweth them not even as it knew not their Master. Abraham's Natural Bed Next. This Spiritual Seed of Abraham, all saintly, will constitute the Church of the First-Borns, the Antitype of the Priests and Levites of the Jewish Dis pensation. With the completion of this Church, gathered out of all na- sects and denominations. Divine favor will return again to the natural seed of Abraham. As the Jew was granted the first privilege or opportu nity of becoming the Spiritual Seed of Abraham, he will likewise have thg first opportunity to participate in tue blessing which then will come to the whole world of mankind. “To the Jew first” Is the Divine order In respect to both of these blessings. To this agree the words of the Apostle Paul. The blessing will come through the great Messiah and as a result of the satisfaction He will make for the sins of the whole world, by applying to the race the merits of His sacrifice by which He will seal the New Law Covenant with Israel (Jeremiah xxxi, 31). The great Messiah of glory will be the Mediator of that New Covenant, and the foundation of that Covenant will be the better sacrifices offered by this Mediator, as the Antitypical High Priest (Hebrews lx, 19-23). The Pentecostal blessing then to come upon the world will not be upon the terms of sacrificing their earthly rights to attain heavenly blessing and spiritual sonship; on the contrary* Its requirements will be a consecration of obedience to the Divine Low; and Its reward will be earthly Restitution to the perfection of human nature, and to the enjoyment of all the blessings originally given to Adam and forfeit ed by his disobedience. WINS FIGHT FOR LIFE. It was a long and bloody battle for life that was waged by James 15. Mar shon, of Newark, N. J., of which he writes: “I had lost much blood from lung hemorrhages, and was very weak and run-down. For eight months I was unable to work. Death seemed close to my heels, when I began, three weeks ago, to use Dr. King's New Discovery. Rut it has helped me greatly. It is do ing all that you claim.” For weeks, sore lungs, obstinate coughs, stubborn colds, hoarsness, la grippe, asthma, hay-fever or any other throat or lung trouble it is supreme. soc and SI.OO Trial bottle free.

W O RLD S ORE ATE ST WORK Some days since Professor George Soule, president of Soul e’s Business College, of this city, made an address on the occasi on of his fifty-fifth anniversary as a teacher. He spoke as a man who has grown old, who has come in contact with thousands of young men and women and who has studied the causes which make for human success and for human failure.. He discussed the tendency of the times as it re lates to .young people who can not be controlled at home by their parents. Success in life is a di fficult thing to analyze. For that at a man or woman should be re ally successful they must do many things. It cannot be said that any man or woman has achieved the greatest success in life if they have not married and brought children into the world and rais ed those children as they should be raised. There are some who for one reason or another have been denied this great opportuni ty and this great blessing, but of those who do bring children into the world there are thousands who make the most dismal fail ure. Professor Soule called at tention to one of the underlying causes for this; the lack of res pect on the part of the children for their parents; the failure of parents to insist upon discipline at home; their failure to take their children and teach them the idea that the parent’s will and not the child’s will must be done. The greatest men of wealth in our nation are gathered in New York. There the big material fortunes have been accumulated. It is more difficult for a rich man to raise his children right than it is for a poor man; but the man in moderate circumstances has the best opportunities for making a success of his children, for he can give them the food that is necessary to nourish their bodies, and by sacrifice he can give them the educational advantages that thev need in order to develop to their best capacity. We read daily in the papers of the shame that the worthless sons of our multimillionaries bring on them. Their fathers have made failures in bringing them up. There are very few things that are worth while where some sacrifice is not involved. It is a rare boy who gets anything out college education that costs his fathers five thousands dollars a year; it is an unusual girl who really learns much at the fashion able finishing school. It is real ly selfishness on the part of the parents if they allow their child ren to do what the children want to do instead of what the child ren should do, and in the end both the parents and the child pay dearly for this practice. Thousands of boys and girls are looking forward to day in this part of the world to the car eers which they desire to follow. Others, through their own lack of initiative, or through the lack of their parents to take the pro per interest in them, are looking forward to no particular career, and are giving no serious thought to the problem of life. Like Mr. McCawber they are waiting for something to turn up; they will hope for some change of government, or some fortunate turn of affairs that will save them from the consideration of life as a problem, but the chances are ninety-nine out of one hund red that these will be disappoint ed; the chances are nine out of ten that those of the class that thinks and plans and works will succeed. We all go along on the theory that things will be a little bit better in the future than they were in the past, but there is no future for the most of us that will ever substitute for the things which we should have learned as young people. Discipline is needed for success; the man who cannot learn obey will not learn to command. Character is esta blished, health is attained only through domestic discipline, thr ough home training, through re iigous environment and through hard work. The hardest thing that many people do is to think, for thought destroys pet prejudices and co unters our favorite views, tho ught destroys many of our cher ished day dreams and many of our ideals. It substitutes what is practical and that appreciation of what is to bo for the things that we want to have happen. Thought that is worth while can only grow out of knowledge, observation and experience. It must be engendered by indepen dence of the right kind. Par ents must bear in mind that the education which their children receive at school is only half their education—the more im portant part of it is learned in the home. The girl and the hoy watch the example which their father and mother set, and in time they will imitate that ex ample; they will do this consci ously and unconsciously; if they are not made to obey and resepct their parents they will not res pect other people; if they are ac corded undue right and privileg es at home they will try to exer. else undue rights and privileges away from home, and in the end they will pay a hundred-fold in disappointment and want and mental anguish for the lack of discipline which they receive in their home. A man cannot raise his family without paying atten tion to his children; women are not to be censured for lack of interest in their children, for the devotion of parents to children is natural and proverbial. But affection must take the right direction. The raising of a family is a question of study, is a question of good ideas and a question of work and responsibility. It is the greatest duty which comes to men and women.—N. O. Daily Item. I SPECIAL INDUCEMENTS.
