LESSON FOR OCTOBER 18
1e IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE.
LESSON TEXT-Mark 14:32-42. See also
n Luke 22:39-46.
y GOLDEN TEXT-Watdh and pray, that
y Ye enter not into temptation. Matt. 26:41
: The account of Peter's boast (v.
29-30), a common but highly sgnifl.
I- cant story, forms the connecting link,
In Mark's Gospel, between this and
e last Sunday's lesson. After singing
" the hymn v. 5 (the Hallelujah),
o Jesus and his disciples left the up
e I. Into the Garden, vv. 32.35. No
- other passage in history so moves the
human heart with reverential awe.
y Somewhere outside Jesus left eight
disciples. He took three, his closest
l friends, and resolutely entered the
darkness. Our record tells ts that he
was "amazed and sore troubled" and
h there is a hint of bhis humanity sug
gested by the fact that he should con
'f fess the same to the disciples. These
three had been with him on the Mount
of Transfiguration there to behold his
glory. Now they are to see the depths
of Divine self-abnegation. He trod
the winepress alone, however, for
I he "went forward a little" (v. 35),
The Master's Prayer.
h II. Praying, vv. 36-38. The l as
y ter's prayer was in reality a prayer
- of triumph; a prayer which enables
t us to apprehend, in part at least, his
I- suffering and a suggestion of his coru
h ing glory. It is easier to apprect
e ate and to understand his prayer
than it is to comprehend his glory.
i The resolute abandonment of himsel t
to the will of his Father is one of the'
d awe-inspiring facts of history.
Jesus asked for this cup, drank it
and passed on to Calvary. In the
h midst of his agony he is strength
ened, Luke 22:43. Returning, he
found the three disciples sleeping. Pe
ter, who had made such boastful avow
als of fealty (vv. 29, 30) and who is
' about to undergo, and to fall, is ad
a dressed in tender reproach, "Simon,
sleepest thou. Couldest thou not
watch one hour?" Then addressing
the three, he said, "watch, and pray
, that ye enter not into temptation;
e the spirit indeed is willing, but the
flesh is weak."
Found No Comforters.
' III. Again praying, vv. 39-42. Again
he passes into the loneliness of that
midnight hour. Again we hear his tri
umphant paean of prayer. This time
a he returns and finds the disciples
heavy with deep sleep. This is a
t fulfillment of Ps. 69:20, "I looked for
comforters and found none." His
Sgentle reproach goes unanswered. For
t a third time he enters the trial and
returning commands the disciples to
sleep on and take their rest.
There is little doubt that between
his permission "sleep on" and the
declaratiqn "It is enough" that the
Savior, in wakeful loneliness,
watched over the sleeping disciples.
At last he roused them for the en
emy, headed by Judas, were at hand.
Their dearly bought sleep was short
and we can imagine the confusion
Scaused by the torch-bearing mob. The
Man of sorrows is calm in this hour
after his victory in prayer. The dis
1 ciples, not likewise strengthened, flee
The Supreme Value of this story lies
in the effect it may produce upon
each one who comes to know it. To
one it does not speak at all, to an
other, it melts the heart and brings
tears to the eye.
While he felt the sense of all through
which he was passing, yet he did not
once hesitate, John 12:27, 28, never
for one moment faltered in his co
operation with the complete will of
God. Again we are compelled to bow
the head with reverence before his
marvelous patience with the disci
ples. Nowhere else have we found a
record that will surpass this picture,
especially the latter end, as we see
him patiently waiting and watching
while they slept The words of the
Psalmist are brought to mind:
Like as a father pitleth His children,
So the Lord pitleth them that fear Him.
For He knoweth our rrame,
He remembereth that we are dust.
Conscious of his approaching pas
sion, conscious of the strain of the
coming hours of that fateful last day,
halting on the pathway of his sorrows,
he gives his disciples time for repose.
While we contrast his self-sacrifice
and their selfishness, yet, when we
study our own lives, we hardly dare
to criticize. We are, however, im
pressed with the marvelous privilege
they allowed to %lip from them.
The Golden Text was spoken after
the first period of prayer. These
words were spoken in tender compas
sion and in full recognition of the
weakness of the disciples. He knew
them altogether, the whole truth about
each one. That they desired fellow
ship with him we feel confident, yet
they, even as we so often likewise, -
failed. Let us then endeavor to ob
serve and obey his injunction, "Keep
awake, and pray ye enter not into
temptation." Not that we shall be
kept from temptation, but as in the dies
ciples' prayer, we should pray. "Lead
us not into temptatfon"

TOOK SPEECH IN THE DARK
Stenographer Says It Was Not Dif
ficult to Follow Remarks
of "Uncle Joe."
"Sometimes a man gets a reputation
that is undeserved," said Sam Gray, a
member of the stenographic corps of
the house of representatives, at the
Willard, according to the Washington
Post. "It happened to me a few years
ago when I was traveling with former
Speaker Cannon in a political cam
paign. 'Uncle Joe' made a lot of
speeches in that particular campaign,
and I was there to make a stenographic
report and transcript of them. In
one western city the speaker was talk
ing to a tremendous crowd of people,
when suddenly, without warning, the
electric lights went out, leaving the
house in total darkness.
"For fifteen minutes, perhaps, the
speaker talked on in the darkness. It
was up to me, of course, to make a
report of his speech, and I did. Nat
urally, I had to feel my way, and I
made my notes unusually large, so
I would have no trouble in reading
them. When the lights were restored

and made an accurate transcrpit of
his speech. Some of the newspaper
bays heard of ,,he story and published
it as a marvelous feat.
