TIME.-The third day after Jesus- de parture from the Jordan for Galilee men tioned in John 2:13. , PLAGE.—Cana of Galilee, the home of Nathaniel. , A REMINDER —The key text of John s Gospel, and hence of every lesson taken therefrom. Is 20:31. John records this Inci dent as an eye witness in order that we "may believe that Jesus Is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing je may have life in His name." Notice how the Divinity of Christ Is attested in each les son thus far. First. His existence traced back to the beginning with God. Second. John’s witness based upon the audible anil visible witness of God. Third, the witness of the first disciples. And the present les sons udds its evidence of the miracle. The Lesson Outline. THEME.—Jesus- glory manifested. 1.—The Occasion, vs. 1. 2. (1) At a Wedding, v. 1. (2) Jesus Invited, v. 2. II —The Opportunity, vs. 3-6. (1) A Need and an Appeal, vs. 3, 4. (2) Willing Servants, v. 5. (3) Empty Jars, v. 6.^ III —The Methods, vs. 7. S. G) Simple and Dlrecl-Jesus usea what they had. . (2) Transforming—Obtained what they had not. IV.—The Results, vs. 9-11. (1) Superior Wine, vs. 3. (2) Competent Testimony, v 10. (3) convinced Disciples. \. Comparing Scripture with Scripture. I. The Occasion. (1) At a Wedding, v j_There is 1,0 occasion or circum stance in life that may not be made radiant with the manifested glory oi losns It is significant that the setting of Jesus’ first miracle should nave uecn a wedding. Jesus was neither an ascetic nor a winebibber, the latter of which his enemies accused llim of being. Matt. 11:19. (2) Jesus invited, v. 2. ’lv.o signifi cant points: 1. The desire for Jesus presence, and 2, His willingness to come. If Jesus were at more weddings to-da> there would be Rss marriages whicu prove failures and fewer divorces. II The Opportunity. (1) A Need and an Appeal, vs. 3, 4.—The glory of Jesus always shines forth where there is a need to supply and a turning to Him in faith for help. Ccmp. Phil. 4:19 with Phil. 4:0. The wine of the world is suie to fail sooner or later and then we mus! turn to Jesus to obtain the wine which can satisfy. (2) Willing Servants, v. 5—A wom an with faith could inspire the servants with a willing spirit to do the Master’s will. Faith wins cooperation, always. And cooperation is needed that Jesus power and glory may be manifested. (3) Empty Jars, v. 6.—It is the emp ty vessel which Jesus wants. Empty that He may fill it. Note all through this incident how dependent God’s pow er is upon human agencies: Thohumav: need, the appeal of faith, the willing servants, and then even the^mpty jars. III. The Methods. (1) Simple and Direct, v. 7.—Jesus began with what they had. Here is a wonderful lesson for every one who would render helpful ministry to others, it was the rod in Moses’ hand and the sling in David’s hand which God was pleased to use. Gen. 4:2; 1 Sam. 17:40. Jesus asks us to do seemingly foolish things some times, but if we obey it brings its re ward, and its glory. In Jesus’ response to the appeal we have revealed the spirit in which He had gone to the wedding. It was that He might serve others and witness to the truth. What an example for us. 1 Cor. 10:31; Col. 3.17. (2) Transforming, v. 8.—Beginning with what they had. Jesus gave them what they had not. Water—and yet ai they obediently poured out and bore to the governor of the least, the water was transformed. The commonest things oi life when poured out in service for others are transformed. Self given in living sacrifice to God is transformed into the likeness of Christ’s perfect char acter. Rom. 12:1, 1, 2. Jesus’ glory is manifested thus. IV7. The Results. (1) Superior Wine, v. 9.—Permit no discussion of the non sensical question as to whether the wine was alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Surely, He from Whom “every good and perfect gift” comes would not supply that which would harm or destroy. God’s Word cries out in no uncertain terms against strong drink. (2) Competent Testimony, v. 10.— Ignorant of the origin of this wine, the governor appreciates its high quality. This is conclusive evidence of the miracle which Jesus had wrought. (3) Convinced Disciples, v. 11,—No mention is made of the others in attend ance on the feast as to the effect of this miracle upon them. Surely, had thev believed on Jesus, Scripture would have so recorded. They could receive this wine from His hand, but they could no; receive the Christ. Ah. how true this is of people to-day! Willing to take all that God has to give, but unwilling to believe in His only begotten Son. In which group would you have been, with the few disciples .or the unbelieving guests, had you been there? Where do you stand to-day? The Golden Text. “Whatsoever He saith unto you, do It.”—What a different world this would be if this injunction were obeyed! How speedily the world would be brought to Christ did every Christian obey the voice of Jesus! “Whatsoever” includes all the range of human need and service. “Do it.” Though you understand not; though it may bring ridicule, or perse cution, or suffering, or loss. “Do it!” and you will have: Peace and joy with in, and success and blessing without. Self is an unsafe master. Whatsoever self saith unto you, do it not. But whatsoever Jesus saith to you. “do it." If it is true that experiments in Italy recently demonstrated that messages sent by radio-telegraphy cannot be di verted from the point for which they are intended, one of the hitherto hardest ob stacles in the way of the ultimate success of the wireless has been overcome. * Successful experiments have been made in the treatment of neuralgia and hysteria with radium at the Salpetriere hospital, in Paris. The. forestry station at Dodge City has supplied western Kansas farmers with more than 1,000,000 trees this year. DUAL ASSOCIATIONS NOW. I'lu* National Mvr.tock \s»ocl«tl«» Uiiirupted Boil a Second Asso ciation Forim'il. Denver Col., Jan. 14.—The National Live Stock association was rent in wain by the adoption of a new consti ,iition which admitted the packers to membership and provided an open :loor through which the railroads of lie country may at any time become factors in the control of the organiza tion. The /attlemen, horse and swine growers, together with representatives jf some of the affiliated industries, re fused to agree to the new constitution, withdrew when they considered its adoption probable, and formed a new organization under the name of the American Stock Growers’ association, whose aim will be to wield a dominant influence in the interest of the cattle grower. The cattlemen have from tlie first strongly opposed the admission into their organization of the packers, and particularly of the railroads. They claimed that these two influences would ultimately dominate the cattle growing industry of the country to the detriment of the individual grower, and they refused to remain in an or ganization which included their rep resentatives among the members of its central body. The defection in the ranks of the association came after a long session, in which the arguments were at times torrid, and where the parliamentary tangles were so frequent and so com plex that it was impossible to follow them. In the new organization renresenta tion is to be of individual members only, add it will not be an amalgama tion of associations, as is the case with the older organization MURDER IN FIRST DEGREE.

When Regular Medical Treatment Failed, Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills Cured Her Rheumatism. Hundreds of people afflicted with rheu matism have spent years under the care of excellent physicians in vain. Then they have settled down to the conviction that it is fastened on them for life. Mrs. Dinsmore was not willing to join the ranks of the hopeless merely because her doctor did not know how to. help her. Here is her story : “ Four years ago I suffered greatly with rheumatism in my bands and knees. After I had been sitting a while my limbs seemed so heavy I could hardly walk on the first attempt. So long as I kept moving I was all right, hut just as soon as I stopped, something seemed to settle in my knees and make them ache. My hands were so had I conldu’t touch the palms of them on a flat surface; they were swollen and pained so.” “Did you call in a physician?” “I doctored steadily for over a year; then one doctor said : ‘ You have taken medicine strong enough to kill almost anything.’ Still, it did not kill me nor the rheumatism.” “ How, then, did you get rid of it?” “At different times I had read iu vari ous publications about Dr. Williams' wonderful Pink Pills for Pale People, and I finally decided to try them. I took them steadily for four months in ac cordance with the directions. By that time I was completely cured.” “ Have you beeu free from it ever since?” “ Since then I have had but one slight return of my trouble, and a box or two ol the same pills made me all right again.” Mrs. F. A. Dinsmore lives in hearty enjoyment of her recovered health at Woburn, MaSs., entirely freed from the grave anxieties that rheumatism always brings. When it appears in but a single joint it shows that the blood is in a faulty state in the whole body. It may at any moment break out elsewhere, and one of the dangers is that it may break out in tiie heart and then the result must be fatal. The only security is to keep the blood all the time in a perfectly sound condition. Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills make healthy blood. All other relief is superficial. This is thorough. These pills arc sold by all druggists. ALWAYS CALL FOR A CIGAR BY ITS NAME n MEANS MORE THAN ANY OTHER NAME BROWN BANDS GOOD FOR PRESENTS ‘ Largest Seller in the Y7or!d.” IN OTHER LANDS.

MIGHT HAVE SAVED IT. A Lot of Trouble from Too Much Starchy Food, A little boy of eight years whose parents did not feed him on the right kind of food, was always nervous and suffered from a weak condition of the stomach and bowels. Finally he was taken down with appendicitis and after the operation the doctor, knowing that his intestinal digestion was very weak, put him on Grape-Nut3 twice a day. He rapidly recovered and about two months thereafter, his Father states, “He has grown to be strong, muscular, and sleeps soundly, weighs 62 pounds, and his whole system is in a fine condition of health.” Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. It is plain that if he had been put on Grape-Nuts at an earlier period in his , life, and kept from the use of foods that he could not digest, he never would have had appendicitis. That disease is caused by undigested food decaying in the stomach and bowels, causing irritation and making for the growth of all kinds of microbes, set ting up a diseased condition wrhich is the active cause of appendicitis, and this is more marked with people who do not properly digest white bread. Grape-Nuts is made of the selected parts of wheat and barley and by the peculiar processes of the cooking at the factory, all of the starch is turned into sugar ready for immediate digestion and the more perfect nourishment of all parts of the body, particularly the brain and nerve centres.
