THE PRODIGAL SON.
LESSON V, THIRD QUARTER, INTER NATIONAL SERIES, AUG. 3. Text of tha Leanun, I.uko xv, 11-24 Com mit Verses, 17-20 Golden Text, Lake XV, lSCominentary by Kev. I). M. Stearng. Compiled from Lesson Helper Quarterly by per mltwioo of I!. H. Iloftmao, publisher, l'lukulul pbia 11. "Ami he mul, A certain man had two omb." This in the beginning cf the third sec tion of thin parablo, which is a continuation of the lesson of hist week. The whole aruble toaohes tlie great lovo of God, the Father, fcjou and Holy Hnirit, for lost, and helpless. and erring humanity; and the syinimtby of the unguis with liod in His joy over the sal' vatlon of the lout. 12. "And the younger of thutn said to his father, Puther, give me the portion of goods that fallotn to m. And he divided unto them bis living." Tho sin Is seen in the son's desire for tho things of bis father rather than for the father and his love. The desire also for independence of the father and separa tion from him indicates the ingratitude of his heart and his insensibility to the father's love and care. 13. "And not many days after, the youngei son gathered all together, and took his jour ney iuto a far country, and there wasted bis subhtance with riotous living." The first Illustration of this rebellious nature in man is seen in Cain, who would not submit to the kind requirements of a loving God; but pre ferring his own way "went out from the priisonee of tho Lord" (den. iv, Hi) to do us he pleased. It is seen in EMail, who preferred n mess of pottage to his God given birth right (Uen. xxv, BfJ-o4). 14. "And when be had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to Ite in want." When wo turn away from God, who is the fountain of living wa ters, and seek to satisfy ourselves with aught else, even with tho gifts of God, we are hew ing out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water (Jer. ii, 1U), and sooner or later wo shall surely come to want. 15. "And ho went nnd joined himself to u citizen of thut country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine." The far country into which he went from his own father's house and plenty is nil about us. It is Litis present evN world which lieth in the wicked one (Gal. i, 4; I John v, 111), and which ul lures us nwny from God. All who aro un saved are suki to bo "far ofT," and because of their sinful and unclean natures are compared to dogs mid swine (Eph. ii, 13; II lVt. ii, 2-). 10. "And ho would fain have Illlral his belly with tho husks that the swino did cat; mid no man gave unto him." First want then worldly helps, and now a beastly uppe titfl. 17. "And when ho came to himself, be said, How many hired servants of my fa ther's havo bi euil enough and to Hpui e, and I perih with hunger!" He had fawn so full of self and self seeking that tho Futlivr't house had not been much in his thoughts, ex cept perhaps as the recollection of H restraint which he could not submit to. Hut by hav ing his desires granted ho has been led to see somewhat of tho leanness of his soul (I's. cvi, 15). Wo read in I Cor. v,5, of one being delivered nolo Katan for tlio destruction of tho flush, tint the spirit may bo saved in the duy of tho Lord Jesus. And in Job xxxiii, 14-i)U, wo read of dreams, visions, sicktiej and itflbctlons ns means used hy Uod 4f nil men to bring back their souls from the pit, to lie enlightened with the sight of ihe living. 18. "I will nriM) and go to my father, anil will wiy unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and iH'foro thee." In tho story of tho lost sheep and lost piece of moucy we saw tho seeking shepherd and wo man with tho light. Tun sheep nnd the money did nothing, the shepherd and woman did ull. Hut In to is a responsible hiunan being who hnn gone astray like a lost sheep, and has been us iiihcnsililo to his father's love as a piece of metal. 11). "And am no more worthy to bo called thy son: make mi) as one of thy hired ser vants." IIo was unworthy to lie called the sun of such u father w hen he hud plenty uud was living riotously, or even whou ho left that father's home, or when ho demanded his share of tho goods. lint ho did not know it, and could not, under those circumstances, be inudo to see it. The only way to humble him and bring him to his s uses was the way ho was allowed to tnl.e Now ho sees his sinful ness nnd lmwortlihioss as ho could not other wise havo fa-en made to sc it. 20. "And lie arose and riiino to bis father." All his conviction, and sense of un worthiness, and good resolutions, would Imvo gone for nothing had ho failed to take this step. IIo might havo rcn tiined in the far country and died there Cull of conviction and gori;i resolu tions. But norrt is the saving point, "lie arose and came." And now we shall soo the re sult. "But when he was yet a great way ofT, his father saw bun, and had compassion, and ran, ami fell on his neck, uud kissed him.'' Hern is the Lovo of God w hich suid to one poor sinner, "Thy sins mvforgiven ; thy fiiith hath saved thee; go in peace." And to an other, "Nuit her do I condemn thiv, go and sin no more," and w hich says to ull, "Hun that cometh unto me I wiil in no wise, east out" (i.uko vii, 4, ji: John vili, II; vi, Si). 21. "And the son Mi l unto him, Father, I havo sinned ugain-t heaven, and in thy sight, and nm no more worthy to lie culled thy son." This w as not nil ho h d intended to say (we verso l'.li, but it seems to have been as far as he got. It is a high honor to bo a bcrvnut of God, but lie makes us His chil dren, children of God and joint heirs with Christ, when in true p 'intone i wo come to Him (John I, 12; Horn vili, IT; John xv, 1 "i I . If we confess our sins Ho is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from ull unrighteousness il John I, i'l. 22. "But tin) lather said to his servants, Bring forth Hie best roU, and put it on him: and put ii ring on his hand, nnd shoes on bis loot.'' Think i f Adam mid Kve liuving lost their fellowship with God mid hiding from Him hocuuv of their sin; mid see God clothing them ith coats of skins which He had niiiilo (Gen iii, 211. iseo Ihe rotie of righteousness, and garments of salvation of lsi, Ixi. II); II t or. v. 21. SI. "Ami bring hither the fat tod calf, anil kill it : and let us eat ami fat merry." If, in tho previous verso, we have forgiveness of sins, mid rig htcouincss. and full restoration to ssitlon and inhei nance, nnd authority, here have trui felloe hip and jrut joy. Tho foretaste is enjoy ed here when lie comes ill to sup Willi ns and we with him (Kev. iii, 20); but tho fuli joy will In when we eat and drink with Hon at I lis table in His kingdom (l.uke xxii, ;K). tvs' in Mordccai's vxulUt tion, apjiaiel, n.iorning, and in the joy sad Klailnmat of Ihe people, a foreshadowing of kingdom joj (Kslh. vin, l.Vli.l J4. "For ibis my son was dead, and is ahveagain: be was lost, and is fimiul. And thev liegan to l tiiei rv." For tho third time in the parable He tells us of the joy over tho hwt when found. And ntmii in vcrsn 112. Nurely that Inch gives such joy to Father, tson and Holy-Spirit, should j;iye great joy to every child of God. Hut w it not to be feared that tho spirit of the eulir brother might he still manifest if we should mako much atio over the onveiion of some tsntr publican r harlot lt us pray to lm lllleil with the Spirit of Hun who receivoth dinners and catoUi with thorn. Knells'' Kcrvants. Writing on "F.ngllsh Servants" .Julian Ralph has tbN to say in H.iricr'H Weekly: "The servants are distinct brvd from oiim. Their voik is jH-rforined with cImmt fiilncss. tlieir manners ai-o d-fer.-utial, their ambition seems to tic t keep t he fam ily good ill and their ow n places.

Hut I had some signilicant talks with servants who wai.eil upon me at liotcls.

"Hut the nui;ib:.T of servants, tnulo and female, who managed before I left Fug land to hint thut they would like a chance to go to America, ami who h;ul 'huncles' or 'brothers' over here, made a consider able total. One pompous bead waiter in London offered to lx my valet across the water if I would pay his faro. When it fell out, even upon a chance visit to a friend in lodgings, with whom I took cold luncheon, that the 'buttons' who curved the meat desired a Vitootition in America, I began to feci if George Peubody realized the nature of the choice ho bad between offering to lit out emigrants to America, or building model tenements to keep them at home, it is no wonder he clioiu tho latter course.

I:i a day or twoit hud moved, and he unuoiinivil theiiis: every ofn comet, for no one dreamed of the existence uf an other planet. It was i:n:t:'i u year before its claim to be a plaint was tullv estab lished. The excitement caused by tho unlooked for event was very front, and honor and fame were IlorscVls reward. King George III knighted the discoverer, en lowed him with a pension nnd provided him with iiic;n:r. lor constructing the forty foot reflector with v.l.UH he after ward discovered the two inner satellites of Saturn.

Vout h's Com pnnion. Yuhiu of Ammonia In EiUing. The carbonate of mumuuia is an c;:eoed ingly volatile substance. I'lace a small portion of it upon n knife and hold over a (lame and it will almost, immediately be entirely developed into gas mi l pass off into the air. The gas thus fiiriuetl is a simple composition of nitrogen ami hydro gen. No residue is left from the ammonia. This gives ii. i!s superiority as a leavening power over soda and cream of tartar used alone, and has induced its use as a supple ment to these art ieles. A small quantity of ammonia in the dough is eiVeetive in producing bread that will be lighter, sweeter and more wholesome than that risen by any other leavenim; agent. When it is acted upon by the bent of baking the leavening gas that raises the iloi: ;li is lib erated. In this act it u -.es it -elf up, as it were the ammonia in entirely ilill'used, leaviiej no trace or residuum whatever.

Knrly Iilsiog. Early rising is iv matter both of trainitie uud temperament. The nervous person is not to rest lightly during the first three hours after retiring, and to fall into tin most refreshing slumber lifter midnight, In that case his morning nap ought not to be abridged.

Loup limbed persons of the motive temperament, those who require much exercise, can main tain equilibrium upon much less sleep than tho nervous, cold blooded, thin skinned kind.

No 2 No 3. WEBSTER'S UNABRIDGED ANCIENT EDITION, A so-called "Webster's Unabridged Dictionary " is being oiiered to the public at a very low price. The body of the book, from A to Z, i3 a cheap reprint, page for page, of tho edition of 1347, which was in its day, a valuable book, but in the pro gress of language for over FORTY TEARS, has been completely superseded. It is now reproduced, broken type, errors and all, by photo-lithograph process. Is printed on cheap paper and flimsily bound. A brief comparison, page by page, between the reprint and the latest and enlarged edition, will show the great superiority of the lattor. Those reprints are as out of date as a last year's almanac. No hon orable dealor will allow the buyer of such to suppose that he is getting the Webster which to-day Is accented as the Standard and TI1E BEST, every copy of which bears onr Imprint as given below. BSS" If persons who have been Induced to purchase the " Ancient Edition" by any misrepresentations will advise ns of the facts, we will undertake to see that the seller is punished as he deserves.
