AND A CALL Story of Isaiah the Pror^ft BY THE “HIGHWAY AND BYWAY” PREACHER (Copyright, 1*#, by the Author, W. 8. k.lson. > Scripture Authority—The Hook o Isaiah, especially chapter 6. The Phophrt Isaiah. The name means •'Salvation of Jehovah.” He was the sot of Amoz, 1:1. He dressed in saekclot! *20:2), a silent preaching of that repent ance which lie taught. His field of la t'or was Judah, and the period of serv ice was during the reigns of "Czziah Jot ham. Ahaz and Hezekiah, kizgs o Judah.” (50:1) 760 nr 770 B. O. to 698 B. C lie was a contemporary of Jonah, Amos Hosea in Israel, but younger than they and of Micah. in Judah. Tradition fron the Talmud represents him as having been sawn asunder by Manasseh, the sor of Hezekiah. with a wooden saw. foi having said that he*had seen Jehovah The vision recorded in the sixth chapter and which se ts forth his call to the pro phetic office, came in the last year oi ITzzlah's reign, the outline of the ehaptei being ns follows: (a) Vision of Glory 1-4; Conviction of Sin. 5; <c) Cleansing from Sin. 6 and 7; (d) The Call, 8; (e) Tin Consecration, s; < f) The Commission, i and 10; <g) The Promise, 11-13. % SERMONETTE. * He * He The only safe vision is the f ik one God gives. ^ Many a person thinks he has JS He had a vision when it is nothing ■?? ^ but the vagaries of a disordered He brain often superinduced by an % abused stomach. ¥ He God does give visions, even in n 2 this day, but not that the one $ thus favored may go around bragging aobut it, but that it He may prove inspiration and prep- £ sration for the Divine service. & mow many there are that seek # ¥ to steep their Christian lives in k supernatural manifestations, and estatic conditions, and who do 44 net do one practical thing to lift 44 £ the burdens that rest on other ¥ 44 lives or point the way to the £ Christ. ¥ v * % Isaiah had his vision, and he k ¥ wisely recorded it among the ¥ k prophetic messages which God 44 % directed him to speak, but we £ k don't find him going about k * preaching a doctrine of visions ¥ k and strange tongues and 6uper- k natural manifestations. He ¥ k strikes at sin in the national life 44 ¥ and points the way back to God. ¥ Whether or not such vivid and k ¥_ striking vision as came to Isaiah ¥ when God called him to service k ¥ comes to the Christian worker £ •k of to-day this one thing is true. ¥. that just as Isaiah had driven £ k home upon his heart the realiza- 4i fit • v ij. tion of the holiness of God and ¥ * his own sinfulness, followed by k the conscious cleansing at God's ¥ k hands, so everyone who would k 44 hear the call of God must travel ¥ the road of such experience. k £ Who can become a faithful am- ¥ J bassadcr for God unless he k 44 knows something of the holiness ¥. k_ of God, the sinfulness of his own k £ heart and the cleansing power of ¥ ¥ God to fit for service? Who, in- k deed? * ^ However great the prophet k 44 Isaiah appears from our point of ^ view to-day, let us not forget k k that neither he nor his message % ¥ was popular in his day. No k k doubt he was dubbed peculiar. % ¥. and his message fell upon ears ¥ 44 that were dull with the world's % j* music, but he did not preach be- ¥ k cause he was the most popular % ¥ preacher in Judah, neither did ¥ 44 he become discouraged and give ¥ up the work because he seemed * k to obtain little if any results. * Rather did he preach because he % 44 had a message, and his heart % ¥ was all athrill with heart-to-heart % 44 contact with God. % ¥ 44 THE STORY. T* HE consciousness of a work to be A done is the hist condition of a call to that work. God never calls a man into his ministry who is not sen sitive to the great need of the world for the gospel message. This is the promise upon which we base this story of the great Isaiah, the man who could see visions and dream of the marvelous grace and mercy of God, the man who was richly endowed with the grace of speech and wealth of imagination of the poet and the strength and force of character of one whose sole basis of action was the unchangeable law of God. Richly endowed of God he early consecrated his abilities to God and came to know the joy of doing right because it was right. In the day in which he lived there were great temp tations to impure, unholy living, for the influence of the heathen nations about had crept tn upon the kingdom of Judah, leading many astray and low ering sadly the religious and the moral standards of the people. The kings of Judah, worldly ambi tious, and desirous of alliances which would strengthen their hands against enemies which rose up against, the nation from time to time, set the ex ample which the people were only too willing to follow. The road away from God is broad and smooth, and for the time being seems wonderfully attrac tive, and so it was in the days in which the events of our story center. It was popular in that day as it is ▼ery often to-day to be so broad minded as to be ready to be on com mon terms of intimacy with the world ly prosperous, and to be so liberal as to have no definite standards of eth ics, but to be whatever circumstnces and conditions seem to require to gain the greatest amount of comfort and pleasure for the time being. Such was the general status of public and private life in the days when Isaiah was a young man, and be cuse he held himself loyally to the support of God’s law, and would not bring the standards which God had established down to the level of man's weaknesses, he found himself counted as peculiar, and of narrow percep tions. But however much he lost of human companionship he more than made it up in the conscious fellowship with the God whom he longed tc serve. And because he valued God's laws above everything else, and made a deep study of it, his vision was clari fled and he was able to see the evils into which his nation was falling stej by step. And he knew that sin meant punishment and that the judgments ol God must in time fall upon his na tion. Thus in his early manhood he came lo be a student of the political condi tion of his nation, and to strive tc , point out the dangers into which the nation was most surely drifting, in this way he labored, conscious of the * great evils which existed and the irre 1 with him. He scarcely recognized the king so changed had his countenance become under ihe strain of the danger that surrounded him. and his hear) ; was moved towards him. “Oh," lie thought to himself, “if he would only listen to the message which God has sent unto him. If he would | only believe the promise which God has given of the coming one, lmman tiel, the very God himself who should come to tlie nation.” Hut even as he beheld the face ol King Ahaz Isaiah knew that he would not receive his message, and his heart sank heavy within him. “Never theless, the message must he spoken,’’ he exclaimed as he stepped forward and proclaimed with a loud voice so that all the people that were assem bled heard: "Take heed, and he quiet; fear not, neither be faint-heartted for the two tails of these smoking firebrands, for th(> fierce anger of Rezin witli Syria, and of the son of Remaliah. Because Syria. Ephraim and the son of Re malaih. have taken evil council against thee, saying, ‘Let 11s go up against Judah, and vex it. and let us make a breach therein for 11s. and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Ta beal.” The prophet paused as he finished tlie words of the boast of the enemies of Judah, and then with thunderous tones he cried: “Thus saith the Lord God. ‘It shall not stand neither shall it come to pass. For the head of Svria is Damascus and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within three score and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people. And the head of Eph riam is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Ramalaih’s son. If ye will not believe, sure ye shall not be established.” The effect of the words upon the people was apparent. A gleam of hope shone in their faces where before had rested one of utter despair. King Ahaz noted the look, but he spoke not a word. "If you believe not that this shall come to pass, ask of the Lord a sign." "Kay I will not ask," answered Ahaz superciliously and with an assumed air of deep reverence, "for why should 1 tempt the Lord in asking a sign." This he spake fearing to publicly pledge obedience to the urgent words of the prophet that he trust wholly in God, for he knew that at that very moment his emissaries were on their way to the king of Assyria w'ith pres ents to win his help in the present peril. With an imperious gesture the proph et turned front the king and, fac ing the assembled people, he shouted: "The Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to re fuse the evil and choose the good.” Days passed, and then came the knowledge to Isaiah that in spite of his message from the Lord, Ahaz had perfected an alliance with the king of Assyria. "It cannot be helped. Ahaz may for get, but there be those in the nation who will remember God's promise of the King Immanuel, and will remain faithful. It was a timely message though the king would not hear and heed." WORTH THE TROUBLE IT TOOK. Hiram Needed Incentive to Go After Lest Money. Old Hiram was known by his neigh Dors as easy goin . with occasional lapses of native shrewdness. One summer evening he was sitting on the front porch with his wife when he dropped a quarter, it rolled with fata! accuracy into the only hole in the floor. Hiram sat looking at the hole for several minutes. He appeared to be turning over in his mind a deep problem. Then he heaved a sigh: “Ain't you going to get it?” asked his wife, anxiously. “I’ve been thinking,” he said, slow ly. “I'd have to go out to the barn and get the hatchet, take off those boards, crawl in under there in the dirt, crawl out again, and nail on the beards, and 1 guess it ain't worth while. I may be going in under there for something else some time. The money's safe.” "Well, 1 never!” exclaimed his wife, "anybody'd think you had money to throw to the dogs.” Hiram knew that she would argue until she had the last word, so he al ways gave it to her at the beginning of the discussion. For ten or fif teen minutes longer he sat gazing at the hole. Then he got up and dropped another quarter and a half dollar into it. “Why, Hiram,” cried his wife, “have you gone clean, plumb crazy?” “I've been thinking,” he replied, “that if it wasn’t worth while going in under there for a quarter it was worth while going for a dollar.”. And he started for the barn to get the hatchet. A Consistent Cutter. “Who on earth cut your hair?’ gasped Mrs. Gunson, as her husband arrived home. “A locksmith, my dear,” replied Mr. Gunson. “Did you think a barber had anything to do with it?” "Indeed, I did not,” retorted Mrs. Gunson. “Judging from the shaggy way it has been trimmed I thought perhaps it was done by a hackman.”— Bohemian.

Comment and Suggestive Thought. Jonathan.—Jonathan the son ol Saul, the crown prince, is one of the finest, the most attractive, and engag ing characters in all history. Mighty in Love. His love did not flow from weakness but from strength. He was Great-heart himself. “He loved David as his own soul.” David, in the “Song of the Bow,” his touching lament over his friend slain on Mount Bilboa, exclaims, "1 am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan; very pleasant hast thou been unto me, thy love for me was wonderful, passing the love of wom en” (2 Sam, 1:26). Brave. Jonathan was a brave and noble soldier, and had accomplished some very daring feats of arms. Alone with his armor bearer, he had cap tured a mountain fortress of the Phil istines (1 Sant. 14:1-15). He was brave in defending David before his angry father (1 Sam. 20:10, 32). He showed another even nobler courage in 1 Sam. 14:43. “I certainly taste . . . in my hand; here I am; lo, 1 must die"—“not a lament, but a hero ic act of self-sacrifice for the sake ol the people.” His good judgment is shown in 1 Sam. 14:27-30. His faith in God and his religious nature were strong as David's (1 Sam. 14:6, 12: 10: 5; 20:13, 42). His unselfishness was more promi nent than ir. any other Old Testament character. He was "the Golden Rule exemplified.” His great hearted unselfishness led him to recognize, submit to, and pro mote the evident leadings of divine providence (1 Sam. 23:16-18; 20:13 between two men of whom the younger er was a most formidable rival to the older.”—Blaikie. A Model Son. Jonathan's noble char acter is also shown by his devotion to his unfortunate fathc . “To him, if to anyone, the frenzy of the king was amenable." “Saul hearkenetli unto the voice of Jonathan” (1 Sam. 19:6). Other Characteristics. Jonathan was older than David, had been brought up in very different circum stances, and was more mature and self-restrained. He was a soldier, not a poet. He had not quite the genius, self-reliance, masterfulness, and vital force of David, nor bis versatility, and power of leadership; but his was a great soul, a mighty heart, with a most wonderful capacity for loving. David.—David, the son of Jesse, the shepherd, also was very attractive in his person; he was accomplished in music and song; he was faithful; he was full of grace like “a lie-goat upon the mountains;” he was courageous even in heroism; he “behaved himself wisely in all his ways;” he had great common sense and tact; he was large hearted and generous; and, above all, he had “a sublime faith, a perfect, childlike trust in the glorious arm of the Lord." He had that in him by which he became “a champion of those who were in distress (1 Sam. 23:1-5), a 'wall by night and day’ to peaceful shepherds (1 Sam. 25:15, 16).“—Professor Sanders. An Ideal Friendship.—Between Da vid and Jonathan there arose a beau tiful, almost ideal friendship. “The soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David.” Their souls were inter woven together into a complete tex ture of friendship. “And Jonathan loved him as his own soul” (1 Sam. 18: 1). This love in its highest perfec tion, mother love and bridal love is the finest type and illustration of the love of God to his children, as often expressed in the scriptures. Expression of that Friendship.— first, jonatnan, tne crown prince, gave his court robes and armor to David (1 Sam. 18: 4). "Possibly the gift was suggested by the need of the country lad for some dress appropri ate to his entrance into court.” Second. He defended David from the frenzy ot his father Saul tl Sam uel 19). Third. By the incident and the covenant in 1 Samuel 20. He wished David well. He yielded up his hopes of the king dom to David, only stipulating that David should not kill him when he be came king, as was the custom of the times, and the further history shows the need of the stipulation. He formed a shrewd plan of making known to David the feelings of Saul toward David. V. 31. Saul tried to persuade Jona than to let him kill.David, "for as long as the son of Jesse liveth . . . thou shalt not be established.” V. 33. When Jonathan refused, “Saul cAst a javelin at him to smite him.” Blessedness of Friendship. “I would rather have a good friend,” said Socrates, “than all other objects of ambition put together,” “The glory of life is to love, not to be loved; to give, not to get; to serve, not to be served.” “It is never given to a man to be wise in the true and noble sense until he is carried out of himself in the purifying passion of love or the gen erosity of friendship. The self-cen tered cannot keep friends.” One great advantage of friendship is its tendency to make a person like the one he loves. The Woman Who Gambles. Moralists say that the emotion of gaming makes women ugly. It is not necessary to take the word of the moralists for that. Gaming does not make women ugly; it unmasks them, and it is of that that they must be warned. It is natural enough, since they play passionately, and in playing thhey forget the world and their faces. So much the worse for those who do as Jezebel. Jean Lorrain has left ter rible pictures of old painted faces the natural condition of which is revealed by the excitement of play. Man and Beast Alike.

Introduced in this region as far.back as 1849 it is found to-day in all well regulated homes hereabouts. Not alone the eyes of man but those of the dumb animals have f «ijoyed its comforts.

Miss Running—Every woman should | work hard for a husband— Mr. Marryat—That’s what I say, but my wife's so lazy— Miss Running—You misunderstand me. I mean she should work hard tc get a husband, but after she gets him she shouldn't work at all. “Nails.” “Nails are a mighty good thing— particularly finger nails—but I don't believe they were intended solely for scratching—though 1 used mine large ly for that purpose for several years. I was sorely affected and had it to do. One application of Hunt’s Cure, how ever, relieved my itch and less than a box cured me entirely.” J. M. WARD, Index, Texas. _ Novel Use for Visiting Cards.
