I. John's Disciples Become Chris
tians (vv. 1-7).
These twelve disciples had onlj
been taught the baptism of repent
ance as a preparation for the kingdom
of God. Paul taught them to believe
in Christ, that Is, to receive Him as
the One who had on the cross pro
vlded redemption for them.
II. Paul Preaching In Ephesus
(w. 8-10).
1. In the Jewish synagogue (v. 8).
His message Is characterized by: (1)
boldness. He realized that God hnd
sent Him and that His authority was
back of Him. (2) Reason. He rea
soned with them. God's message la
never sentimental nor arbitrary, but
In accord with the highest reason. (3)
Perauaslon. It Is not enough to come
boldly with a reasonable message; It
must be accompanied by persuasion.
(4) Concerning the kingdom of God.
He did not discourse on current
events, literature, or philosophy, but
upon the message of salvation through
2. In the schoolhouse of Tyrannus
(vv. 9, 10). Paul's earnest preach
ing only hardened the Jews. When
they came out and spoke openly
against thla way of salvation In
Christ, Paul separated the disciples
from them and retired to the school
house of Tyrannus.
III. God Working Miracles by Paul
(w. 11-16).
So wonderfully did he munlfest Hla
power that handkerchiefs and aprons
brought from Paul’s body healed the
sick and cast out evil spirits from
those whose lives had been rnude
wretched by them.
IV. A Glorious Awakening (vv. 17-
1. Fear fell upon all (v. 17). News
of the casting out of these evil spirits
created impressions favorable to
2. It brought to the front those who
professed faith In Christ while not
living right lives (v. 18). They be
lieved, but had not broken from sin.
3. Gave up the practice of black
arts (v. 19). This means forms of
jugglery by use of charms and magi
cal . words. AD such are in opposi
tion to the will of God; therefore no
one cun have fellowship with God and
practice them. They proved the get*
ulneness of their actions by publicly
burning their books. Though this
was un expensive thing—valued at
about $12,500 —they did not try to sell
the books and get their money back.
When you And you have been in a
wrong business, make a clean sweep
of things; burn up your books on
Spiritualism, Christian Science, etc.;
empty your whisky and beer Into the
sewer, and have a tobacco party sim
ilar to the Boston tea party.
4. Uproar of the Silversmiths at
Ephesus (vv. 23-41). (1) The occa
sion (vv. 23, 24). This was the pow
er of the gospel in destroying the
Infamous business of Demetrius und
his fellows. It was clear to them that
Idolatry was tottering before the pow
er of the gospel. They were not In
terested particularly In the matter
from a religious standpoint, but be
cause It was undermining the princi
pal business of the city. (2) The
method (vv. 25-29). Demetrius, a
leading business man, whose business
was the stay of others of a similar
nature, culled u meeting and stated
that much people had turned from
idolatry and that the market for their
wares was materially weakening. He
appealed to his fellows (a) on the
ground of business, saying “This, our
craft, Is In danger of being set at
naught," (v. 27). (b) On the ground
of religious prejudice. He said “The
temple of the great goddess Diana
should be despised" (v. 27). He be
came quite religious when he saw that
his business was being Interfered
with. Uls speech gained his end; the
whole crowd was enraged and yelled
In unison, “Great Is Diana of the
Ephesians." The mob was quieted by
the tact and good judgment of th«
town clerk.
The Fall of Jerusalem.
And Nebuchadnezzar, king of
Babylon, came against the city, and
his servants did besiege It. And he

In hospitals are many women who are there for surgical operations,and there
is nothing a woman dreads more than the thought of an operation, and the
long weary months of recovery and restoration to strength if it is successful.
It is very true that female troubles may through neglect reach a stage
where sn operation is the only resource, but most of the commoner ailments
of women are not the surgical ones • they are not caused by serious displace
ments, tumors or growths, although the symptoms may appear the same.
When disturbing ailments first appear take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound to relieve the present distress and prevent more serious troubles.
In fact, many letters have been received from women who have been restored
to health by Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound after operations bars
been advised by attending physicians.
