RECEIVING AND RECEIVED Sermon by the "Hitfbwcr and Byway" Preacher. (Copyright, l0i, by J. K. Edaon.) Chicago, Sunday, Nov. 6, 1904. Text: "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God. even to them that believe on His name." John 1:12. "This Man receiveth sinners." Luke 15:2. m UR first text pictures . Christ in the pas sive mood and our second in the ac tive. In one He is waiting to be re ceived by men, and in the other we be hold Him In the act of receiving men Both conceptions are true and give the twofold view of the Christ which is essential to a cor rect understanding cf His relations to man and man's rela tions to Him. One brings before us the picture of man dwelling apart from God He is occupied with his own affairs and doings, with the world and the things cf the world. The house of his own desires shelters him, and his friends Ambition and Wealth, and Pleasure, and Business and Society, and hosts of other children of the world find cordial welcome there Their knock is scarcely heard before the door swings open to admit them,, and hospitality and good cheer are graciously extended to them. And in our picture we see One making a long, long journey. He leaves the Father's house above, He lays aside the glory and honor and majesty and power which have been His through out the ages from the beginning of time, and steps down among men. He travels the dreary road of suffering. He endures all the conditions and trials and tempta tions of human life. The cross over shadows His pathway. The crushing weight of human sin falls upon His sin less shoulders, and thus burdened He is lifted up upon the cross that lies at the end of the pathway of His human life He becomes the willing sacrifice for gin. He goes down into the grave of death. He drinks the bitter dregs of sin He pays the penalty of man's transgres sions. He triumphs over death and the grave. He breaks the fetters of the tomb, He lays aside the grave eloths forever, and issues forth the risen and living Lord, the Saviour of men. He has reached the abode of man. He knocks for admittance. "The Saviour, standing at the door. Is knocking-, knocking, o'er and o'er, lie seeks thy guest to be." "TKERS axe given ready and cor caa: welcome. Tne door opens wide to admit the friends of the world, but the Friend and Saviour from Heaven is kept standing without Notwithstanding the long journey He has made, notwithstanding all that He has suffered and wrought for sinful man, the Son of God Is kept waiting without. I remember some year,s ago cf reading the pathetic, sad story in the newspapers of an aged father com Ing from his home in Europe seeking the son who years before had come to this country to seek his fortune. The Eon f ad prospered In the new land. Ambition had come with wealth. He had married an American girl, and as the family grew up about them the glamour of social distinction fascinat ed them, and they coveted a place in the fashionable world. The humble origin of the father was one of the buried things of the past. Every effort was made to cover up and forget the poor home and surroundings in the old country. The old mother died, and then came a yearning in the heart of the aged father to make the long journey to Amer ica to seek his son. WE have not time to tell of the old man's long, tedious, hard search, of the great yearning in his heart that kept him steadily pressing on from point to point, of the privations through which he passed, but at last he found him, and with heart beating with hope and joy he went with tottering, feeble steps up the walk which led to the door of the man sion where lived his son. With trembling hand he knocked upon the door. But there was no welcome there for him. In nis broken English, for during the months of his wanderings he had learned enough to make himself under steed, he told his story. The son was summoned. But it was with anger and wounded pride that he greeted his aged parent. It would never do to have it known that this poor, old, igno rant foreigner was his father. And so the father was refused admittance. He was bundled off to the poor house as a homeless vagrant. The long, hard Jour ney was all in vain. How inexpressf bly sad, and yet the spectacle of Jesus coming from Heaven to earth, and knocking at the heart's door and be ing refused recognition or admittance. Is infinitely sadder. It is the tragedy of the ages. "Arise! take down the bars of sin, Attt let the loving Saviour in, Make Him thy welcome guest. He'll give thee of His richest grace. He'll make thy home His dwelling piace. And with thee ever rest." 4 nUT as many a3 received Him, to D them gave He." Jesus does not come empty-handed. The Divine guest comes laden with gifts of eternal richness and worth. To as many as receive Him He gives. It is the pretty custom in the oriental countries for the guest to bring his gift, his treasure, and bestow it upon the gracious host Constant reference is made to this cus tom in the Scriptures, a notable instance being the visit of the queen of Sheba to King Solomon. He received her gra cicmsly and showed her the splendor and magnificence of all his palaces, and she in turn opened up her treasure stores which had been brought on the long train of camels that had accompa nied her and gave to him gold and pre cious stones and rare spices. And In this country It Is a common thing for one making a visit to carry gifts to the friends In the home that Is to welcome md shelter them. And it is a beautiful figure which our text brings before us. Jesus the guest having been admitted Into the heart and life gives the treas ure which He laid down His life to ob tain for sinful, needy man. The queen of ita tro-glxt trescu wild. do- j mon could not find or obtain In hia own land, and the Christ brings gifts which man can never obtain except at Christ's hands. "As many as received Him, to them cave He the right to be come children of God." A certificate of sonship to God, a guarantee of eternal claim upon the riches, and glory, and blessing of the Father's House. The Son of God; who is the heir of all things. raises man to an equal relationship with the Father, and he becomes a Joint heir to all that God has to Jtive in this life and the life to come. Ah! what folly to keep Jesus waiting upon the outside of the heart. Receive Him, oh, needy soul! and let Him bestow upon you His gift of sonship with God and eter nal life! A ND this is the picture of the Christ in the passive mood. Waiting patiently, longingly, lovingly, to be re ceived by man. The vision of the Christ in the active mood reveals to us the great, throbbing heart of God; shows us the persistent, faithful, mighty effort which He is putting forth to rescue man from the depths of sin and death. The most glorious tribute which was ever paid our Lord was that whifh the angry and Jealous Scribes and Pharisees gave when they contemptu ously charged that "this man receiveth sinners." It was true, and it has made glad the centuries since He trod the earth and the words were spoken. Christ receiveth sinful men. Letusstudy the details of this picture in order that we may drink in its depth of beauty and wealth of meaning:. No casual glance will suffice to reveal all the charm and meaning of the painting of the artist. It takes the searching eye and the meditating heart to under stand it all. But as one sits hour aftei hour before the masterpiece of art hov? it unfolds and grows upon one's vision. And so it is with this picture which Scripture gives to us of the Christ re ceiving sinful men. The heart will never begin to "see or understand all the depth of love and the wealth of Divine grace which is here contained until it gets over on the other side and sees eye to eye and knows even as It is known, but It may know and understand more and more as it ponders on this blessed truth: "This Man receiveth sinners. And this is the picture. Jesus by right of His Divine Sonship, in fulfillment of IJis commission brought with Him from Heaven, and by reason of His triumph over sin and death, has established a sure and everlasting1 retreat to which the needy soul of man may flee for ref uge. r N obedience to the command of God, the children of Israel established six -cities of refuge ln the new land to which they had journeyed, in order that those who were in danger of the avenger of blood might find a safe refuge until their cases could be tried by the Levites. These cities of refuge were a type of the Christ, and in figure illustrate the service which Christ was to perform for a lost and ruined race. God sent His Son into the world to establish for man a refuge from sin and its conse quences. Death presses so hard upon the heels of the guilty sinner who Is in peril of everlasting destruction. What a thrilling sight it must have been in those old Jewish days to see the af frighted runner fleeing for his life towards the city of refuge, while press ing hard after him was the man who would take his life. VWbat a desperate race it was! The Levites of the walls of the city would watch with bated breath. They note the waning strength of the foremost runner, and observe that the pursuer is slowly but surely gain ing upon him. WTith bulging, bloodshot eyes, distended nostrils and deep-heav ing chest the men plunge on. Every muscle is strained to the breaking point. The veins and arteries stand out like whip cords, showing that the blood within is surging in sympathetic race. and seeking to encourage and help, the one to escape, the other to plunge his dagger into the vitals of the first. On, still on, the race continues. They come within hailing distance of the city's gates and the Levites call words of en couragement and cheer. They descend from the wall to the wide open portals. They lean as far out towards the plain as possible. They stretch forth the hands to give ready help to the pursued man. The hot, fierce breath of the avenger is felt, as with redoubled ef forts he seeks to claim his prey. The hand is uplifted to strike. Another step, and the keen, heartless blade will find its scabbard In the quivering flesh and drink the life blood of the fleeing man. ITH a power born of desperation the pursued man gathers up all the remaining strength he can com mand and makes one mighty plunge towards the haven of safety and the friends who are there to receive him. Will he make it? Pursuer and pursued leap into the air together. The plunge of the hindmost man is greater. The first falls in helpless exhaustion, and the other in his leap hovers Just the barest instant above him. and then, nerving the arm and hand with all the strength that is left, he brings the dag ger down. Too late, you cry! At the very portals of the city of refuge he must perish! Ah, no. thank God! The arms of the waiting Levites reach out to save. The willing hands takehold where the other's strength has failed, and while the avenging blade is cut ting the air in Its fierce downward plunge, the prostrate form Is lifted within the gates. He is safe! He is safe! And never a soul that flees for refuge to Christ Is overtaken by the avenger, Death. The race is desperate. All seems to be lost, but in that mo ment of helplessness. In that time. of imminent peril when sin is seeking to inflict Its deadly wound, at just that Instant the arms of Jesus reach out and down and lift in gracious. loving, ten der grasp to the place of safety at His side. He receiveth sinful men, and noe who come to IJim are ever cast out If the cause of the refugee was not just: if-he had killed In willful anger, then he was delivered up into the hands of the avenger of blood. But here is where the type is defective and falls to set forth the perfect work -of grace which Jesus performs for the sinner. The guiltless only were sheltered with in the city of refuge. The guiltr only are sheltered within the refuge which Christ affords. He came not to call the righteous, but sinners, to repent- ance. He receiveth not the world's best, but the world's worst He receiveth fin- cers 3 only Eiusex 5. A WONDERFUL INVENTION. The Bow and Arrow of the Bed 2an Contrived in. His Prim itive Stage. Another test of mental ability which deserves special notice is mechanical in genulty. Our white preeminence owes much to this faculty, and tne lower races are reckoned defective in it. But tne lower races do invent, and it is doubtful whether one invention is ever much more difficult than another, says Prof. W. I. Thomas, In the Forum, on tne psychological side, an invention means that the mind sees a round-about way of reaching directly. - It brings into play the associative memory, and involves the recoernition of analogies. There Is a certain likeness between the flying back of a bough in one's face and the rebound of a bow, between a serpent's tooth and a poisoned arrow, between floating tfm- bef and a raft or boat; and water, steam and electricity are like a horse in one respect they willall make wheels go around and do work. Now, the savage had this faculty of seeing analogies and doing things In In direct waysx With the club, knife and sword he struck more effectively than with the fist; with hooks, traps, nets and pitfalls he understood how to seize game more surely than with the bands; In the bow and arrow, spear, blowgun and spring-trap he devised motion swifter than that of his own body; he protected himself with armor imitated from the hides and scales of animals, and turned their venom back on themselves. That the savage should have originated the Inventive process and carried It on sys tematically is indeed more wonderful than that his civilized successors should continue the process; for every begin aing Is difficult. When occupations become specialized and one set of men has continually to do with one and only one set of machinery md forces, the constant play of atten tion over the limited field naturally re sults in improvements and the intro duction of new principles. Modern in ventions are magnificent and seem quite to overshadow the simpler devices oi primitive times; but when we considet the precedents, - copies, resources and accumulated knowledge with which the modern investigator works, and, on tho other hand, the resourcelessness ol primitive man in materials, Ideas, and Id the Inventive habit itself, I confess that the bow and arrow seems to me the most wonderful invention in the world. RED -HERRING "SARDINES.' The Real Article Is Something with Which the Average Person Is Unfamiliar. Comparatively few imported sardines are sold in this country nowadays, yet not one consumer in a thousand knows the difference between the imitation and the genuine, so nearly does the fish sold for a sardine resemble the real sardine ln appearance and taste. Nine-tenths of the "sardines" come from Maine. In Eastport alone there are over two dozen places where the mock sardine is prepared and boxed. The New York Sun gives an acocuntof the industry. The business was begun long ago by a couple of sharp and far-seeing New Yorkers, who began to pack small her ring in little wooden kegs and place them on the market under the name ol "Russian herring." The venture was most successful, but the men got the idea there was more money still in modeling the herring after the French 6ardice. A similar experiment had been tried not long before, but it had turned out to be a failure. It had been easy to pack the Maine herring in olive oil and to encase it in boxes which imitated the French production, but the taste of the herring remained unmistakable, and the scheme failed. The New Yorkers, how ever, after a few trials, hit on a mixture or blend of spices and oils for a packing sauce, which made a "sardine" of a her ring and caused to spring up a gigantic Industry. "Sardines" are made not only from common herring, but from young sea trout The way the fish are handled at the factory is a sight worth going to Maine to see. When they have been piled in heaps on long tables the cleaning be gins. The rapidity of the work is won derful. A seven-year-old girl can be head and clean 75 herrings every minute for ten minutes without a miss or a halt. New York is the great wholesale cen ter for these Yankee "sardines." One Maine factory alone and there are others doing as large a trade has made and sold as many as 2,000,000 boxes oi Two Viewpoints. Mr. Hoamley I had a dream about you last night, Miss Pechis.

A traveling man relates that while rid ing on the new orient line between Harper and Anthony a few days ago, one of the side rods of the engine broke, and the other side stopped on a "dead center," so that when the repair was made it was impossible to start again. According to the Kansas Citv Star he says: "The engineer, the . conductor and all the passengers took turns going over the thing and trying to devise a way to make it run. Finally a boy came out of the held where he had been plowing to see what was foing on. He crawled through the wirt ence and sat down on the bank and fanned himself with his straw hat. 'If you'd back that last car up the grade an' let 'er come down gerchunk, that ud start 'er,' he final ly suggested, deliberately. "The railroad men sniffed contemptuous ly but the passengers sided with the boy. Finally the conductor gave order that the rear car be uncoupled. No less than 50 pas sengers caught hold and pushed the car up the grade. Once at the top the car was let go. The loose coach gained momentum as it came down hill, and in spite of the en gineer' admonition to 'let her come down easy,' the emergency battering ram crashed into the train with a tremendous thump. The engine was bumped off 'center' all right." ASKED A PERSONAL FAVOR. Lawyer Wanted Judge to Relieve Him of a Somewhat Danger ous Duty. TOne of the most picturesque figures of the New York bar was the late Thomas Nolan, a lawyer, whose witty retorts furnished subjects or merriment at many a lawyers' gathering. Now, Nolan was at one time counsel for a poor widow who was suing a construction company for the death of her husband, relates Success. The case had been placed upon the "day calendar." but had been frequently postponed, ana Mrs. Moriarity, by the time she had made her fifth call, was in an exceedingly disturbed frame of mind, consequently tne tones of Nolan's rich brogue were more than usual ly fervid as he fought against the sixth ad journment. "I am sorry," said Justice Dugro, "but your opponent has shown me good cause for the adjournment, Mr. Nolan, and the case will therefore go over until to-morrow." "Very well, sor," said the barrister, weetly, "but mirat I ask wan personal fa vor of this coort?" "Certainly, sir, with pleasure." "Will your honor kindly sthep down to my office and just tell Mrs. Monarity that you have adjourned the case?" Santa Fe Engines at World's Fair. All the world loves a locomotive.

Pinkham's Vegetable Compound that I feel it but just to acknowledge it, hoping that it may help some other woman sufferinr as I did. 44 For years I enjoyed the best of health and thought that I would always do so. I attended parties and receptions thinly clad, and would be suddenly chilled, but I did not think of, the results. I caught a bad cold eighteea months ago while menstruating and this caused inflammation of the womb and congested ovaries. I suffered excruciating pains and kept getting worse. My attention was called to your Vegetable Compound and the wonderful cures it had performed, and I made up my mind to try it for two months and see what it would do for me. Within one month I felt much better, and at the close of the second I was entirely well. "I have advised a number of my lady friends to use it, and all express themselves as well satisfied with the results as I was." Miss Boss Noax IlEKNESsr, 410 S. Broadway, Lexington. Ivy. The experience and testimony of some of the most noted women of America go to prove beyond a question that Lydia E.

Pixkham: About two years ago I consulted a phy sician about my health which had become so wretched that I was no longer able to be about. I had severe backache, bearing-down pains, pains across the abdomen, was very nervous and irritable, and this trouble grew-worse each month. The physician prescribed for me, but I soon discovered that he was unable to help me, and I then decided to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and soon found that it was doing me good. My appetite was returning, the pains disappear ing, and the general benefits were well marked.
