1. The Test or Prophet 8.
The old proverb is familiar to all
of us: "A prophet is not without
honor save in his own country."
Said Montaigue: "The farther off I am
leccived from my own home, the bet
ter I aai esteemed." The people of
Ayrshire always thought of Burns
as only a plowman No city claimed
(tamer when he was alive. Seven
cities claimed him after his death.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich has a little
verse which gives the leason why
some prophets arc not honored at

his riches have not saved him from
lioublc and from the questions of the
j.ublic about his real character.
Itich parents have troubles which
me greater than those which come to
poor patents. It is easier to strug
gle along iu poverty and to bring
up and educate children under such
conditions than it is to do similar
things for them when one has plenty
of money. I am glad my parents
weie poor. I hope my children will
also have to struggle for most of
the ithngn they get. I think it was
a wise man who said that the best
thing a parent could do for his child
ren was to do as the old hen did for
her chickens, "let them seratdi for
111. Answered Prayer
When the nobleman met Jesus tho
latter told him that his child would
live. When the nobleman was re
turning home his servants mot him,
saying that his son liveth. "So he
enquired of them when ho began to
amend." Why did the nobleman ask
the hour? Because it occurred to
him that the change in his son's
condition began at the time Jesus gave
him his promise. There are countless
other illustrations ud evidences of an
swered prayer. I have met thous
ands of christians who reported such
personal experiences in the answer to
prayer as were a great stimulus to ray
faith. The following experience re-
lated by Dr. A. E. Dunning is worth
a great deal: "I have watched the
labored breathing of my little boy.
I have heard the kind tone of the phy
siciun telling me that he believed
my boy had only a few hours to live.
I iera!l the dull anguish with which
lvs words fell on my cars I know
what it is to cast one's self before
God prating: 'Come down ere my
child die,' feeling that, if death should
with thum lesson the honor which we
accord to them? Why shojld we not
have the courage to test them upon
'.heir merits'.' Why should we not
examine every teaching and see what
ought to be done with it? It is only
in this way that we can fairly face
the problems and teaching of Jesus
Christ. No matter what pre-judgements
may be in or minds about
him we ought to try to approach
him with open mind and willing
ness to learn and to hear.
11. The Sons of Noblemen.
It was "a certain nobleman whose
son was sick at Capernam." The
rich and the noble are exempt from
the troubles and sorrows of life.
Sometimes these fall more heavily up
on the wealthy than upon the others.
Riches are not always able to secure
health, nor do they insure the posses
sion of character.
Recently -Mr. Thaw has been before
the public because of his alleged flog
ging of a young man and also be
cause of his attempt to take his own
life. Several years ago when he was

' a "brain jstorm." There were those
who wondered at that time when he
, might have another "brain storm"
and do some damage to himself or
to evorybody else. The point is that
come, I would still trust God, yet with
tho heart's cry, 'If it be possible, let
this cup pass from me.'
I have seen my boy's quivering
nostrils grow quiet, his painful
breathing beenmo easier, till tho strug
gle with death passed into natural
sleep, I hnvc watched the surprised
hope on the physician's face till its
unspoken assurance showed me that
tho crisis had passed, and that my
boy would come back to mo There
fore I believe that God, who revealed
himself in Cana thru Jesus Christ,
answers prayer. Tho sign of the
healed boy in Capernaum helps me
to bclicvo on Christ, but the sign
of the healed boy in Boston helps me
more I should not dare to pray for
help from God and then refuse it
when the doctor brought it to me.
I should still believe in Jesus Christ
if my boy had died. Those who know
Christ arc satisfied even in-the depth
f bereavement with his assurance,
'Ho that believeth on me, tho he die
yet shall he live."
Miss Tarbell relates the following
incident: "A New York boy caused
his parents great anxiety, for they
had made up their minds that he was
an idot. He had frequent convul
sins, and as ho grew older showed
fewer signs of average intelligence
But one day the father overheard
the boy praying, and the pathetic
prayer brought hope to his heart.
'Thou knowest, Lord, that my father
and mother arc disappointed in me,'
the lad prayed. 'They can find noth
ing in me to be proud of. Thou know
est why, and thou knowest why thou
hast given me the burden of these
terrible convulsions. But I will trust
thee; I will trust thee to the end.'
The father left his business and
took his boy for a tour around the
world. On their return the boy was
sent to school again, and he made
rapid progress in his studies, excel
ling all his classmates. 'When a Uni
versity section of the Y. M. C. A. was
started for the graduates of the med
ical and science and law colleges, of
the four thousand me my son was
chosen president,' said Dr. W. F.
Bainbridge, the now proud father.
'When the World' Congress of Sur
geons and Physicians met at Heidel
berg and again at Brussels, my boy
was chosen Vice-Presidet the idot
boy who told God that he could trust
him, the boy who believed even tho
ho could not understand.' That boy is
now one of tho leading specialists in
nppendicitis and is known tho world
over for his rcmarkablo success as a
Columbus. "More quail can bo
plnccd on Ohio farms than the hun
trcs will kill from year to year, by
using hunters' license monoy for that
purpose," said J. F. Atwood, of this
city, secretary of tho Lcaguo of
Ohio Sportsmen. The league wants
a' short open season for quail. A
bill is pending in the legislature
seeking to place quail on tho song
bird list, prohibiting hunters from
president of tho state horticulture
society, said on Saturday. "It's sim

"If there was a grading and
packing system in Ohio, with tha
state's stamp to back it up, Ohio
apples would bo in demand."
Figures cited by Shaw show that
thousands of bushels of western ap
ples are shipped into Ohio every year.
Columbus. (Special.) "Eat Ohio
Apples Next Year" will bo tho cry
used by the state horticulture society
in the proposed fight for a state ap
propriation of $8000 to promote
Ohio's apple industry.
Lack of a standard grade and
packing code in Ohio is said to be
the cause for the state "trailing"
fifth in apple production.
"Dealers have no assurance that
Ohio apples are good," N. E. Shaw
Columbus. If a bill introduced in
tho senate by Senator White, of Erie
county, becomes a law, hunting rab
bits at night with tho aid of search
lights, or any other kind of artificial
light will be illegal.
Numerous complaints have boon

at night has been made dangerous
by the shooting of hunters.
