Seen In Crsatlwn Common Owner ship, Privilege and Companion ship in tn Home. Following is part or the first of a Berles of four sermons on marriage, to be given at the Cairo Baptist church by the Rev. S, C. Ohrum. The remaining subjects will be. "The Enemy of Marriage." "The Friend of Marriage," "The Mystery of Mir Htrie," There are two accounts of mar rinse presented in the first two chap ters iu the book of Genesis. One Is ; general and the other Is special. In (he general account at On. wv have two things that ar Included In marriage, the linage of Cod and It nt ownership. God's Image In Marriage. "God said, let us make man In our own image, after ort likeness." ' And God civated man In his own Image, Ir. the Image of God created he him: n nlo auil female created he them. The divine image takes in the en - tire nature of man and woman, and is both physical and spiritual. God created man .in a carefully planned pair, both containing some qualities In coiuniou. while each one contained much In disposition and desires that U entirely different from the other. This difference Is Indicated In the voice of the man and the woman, Woman Is loving and confiding; man is strong and independent. Woman loves the house; man prefers the field. These opposites are both requited b- make up the entire image of God In marriage. While the Image has been marred by the fall, yet the rem nants of the defaced picture are there to be perfected by the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ.' It Is not possible for one alone to tltalu to the highest perfection of nan on earth. This remains for the .attainment of the human pair in niar- iage. where the two separate per onalities are 'united in that largvr nd stronger personality of husband inii wife. Common Ownership. "And God said .let us make man in ur own image, after our likeness; nd let them have dominion over the Ish of the sea ,and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and aver all the earth, auJ over every rfreping thing that creepeth upon h- earth." t. Husband and wife jointly were to a? tne lord or creation. Not man lone, nor woman alone: but both In i the marriage bond. Tbey were to rarltiply and replenish the earth with ther earth rules like themselves. In this war of conquest husband and wife were to march side by side. By this Joint campaign, they were i to unitedly come into their own. And they were bom to own these things In common as husband and wife. Man may not own the woman, nor the woman the man; but both together may own all the other merchandise it earth. This disposes of the legal side of ownership In the case of married peo . pie;, for the legal ownership, by dlvlne right. Is vested in both the husband and the wife In common. Common Privilege, The use of the fruit of all food was ?lven to husband and wife jointly. There was dominion In the using as veil as In the owning. It Is the one purse Idea, with this provision added, that neither one fs to have access to the purse without the agreement of both together. The Idea that the man Is king In Ms business and the woman Is queen !n the home, does not inhere In the arrlag- Institution, unless It be by the mutual agreement of both parties ' the marriage. The business prob 'tms and the home problems come, by the very nature of marriage, under Ihe Joint dominion of husband and wife. By mutual arrangement they may turn over certain duties to cither arty, to be taknn up jointly when ever the exlarnel' of the occasion vav demand. This divine method is bound to bring to the family the largest suc cess and blessing: for it brings to esr noon every subject . both the ar'fi;l judgment of the man and the ?en insight of the woman. It is not ossible for any man to rise to his itghest possibilities In either busl i w or religion without the sympathy ind confifratUtn of. his wife. Vor Is It wslhl for the wife to nMIn to ber 6et and aweetest self with the love 'ii.l cooperation of her husband.

In this simple story Is bound up the most precious blessing that God cculd then give t man. It was divine surgery and It cured the home sickness of the heart. While pausing to look upon this lonely man who sleeps I cannot re frain 'from asking myself, "Does he d renin?" Just as you or I might have dreamed of some companion to cheer the lonely heart. Perhaps he could see dimly a form like unto himself walking among the flowers. He awakes, to look about Mm, and, be- hold. It was a dream.

"Therefore shall , a man leave his father anil his . mother, and .shalj cleave unto his wife;; and they sba"l ! be one flesh." ; I This marriage law grows out of the j nature of marriage, as contained (n the two accounts of the creation of husband and wife. While a child, need not di-ihooor the parents, yet at marriage a higher law steps In to demand the allegiance of .the child. Henceforth the child piust be loyal, first of all. to the com panion in marriage. No one . may now step in to separate husband and wife. No voice of the mischief maker may enter that threshold. That sacred union may not be disturbed by either friend or foe. . And the union that Is one lu Met must now be nude one In experience; for the discords that arise at the b c'inning of the married life, because of the temperament aid training. nifst be dealt with in the spirit of love and forebearance, till the music of the home is in tune with the criminal marriage anthem. The reason that these differences are- finally oiercome Is because of the oneness of the nature of things in the marriage Institution. This inner spirit finally overcomes all outward opposition and discord, bringing out ward harmony and peace. It baa be come porverbial how the different faces of husband and wife grow to resemble each other In old age. This Is due to the deep psychology of mar riage. The united marriage spirit of the two continues to do Its silent ami effective work, till at last not only do the two hearts beat as one, but also the two faces look as one. to the pleasure of friends and to the glory of God. No one should enter the marriage state without first resigning " oneself entirely to the marriage law. It will mean something of self sacrifice of ones ordinary self for the sake of the larger and stronger,, self that one finds in the uaited life of husband and wife. And when the husband and his wife find themselves In discord, let them both remember what they are In fact nnd seek to make that oneness real In the practical every-day duties and privileges of life. God is their helper: and no couple have ever yet failed who have patiently endeavored to live up to the requirements of the marriage law. THE STORY OF PETER. His Weakness Lay in Not Understand ing Gods' Plan Was Guided By Impulses. In the evening, at the Lutheran church, the pastor. C. H. Armstrong, r-poke of the "Fall and Re-Conversion cf Peter," the incident of this apostle's fall being recorded in Matt. 2".:C3". Of all the apostles. Peter the most Interesting. He was one of the earliest of the Master's follow ers, having been one of John's dis ciples, by whom he was directed to Christ. Simon, his name with John, Jrsus diHTiee.! to "OphaH." Syrtac for "pctros," which Is the Greek word for "rock." "d when Jesus bhe:d him. he said. Thnu art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which Is by Interpretation, a stone." From among a large number of dis ciple. Jesus chose twelve to be anostles; Puer was first to be chosen. 1 1 A wi. f Iw, ...... ! 1 t ! ... " ' """"'" man for the other. He was one of the favored triumvirate always near I the . Master Peter. John. Jne. Jesus clearly recognized him as an otle. Therefor", he niuht have been a fonierted man. Some of the elements of Mrenztli in Peter were. 1 He recognised bit ow n sin. Ou a certain occasion. confronted suddenly with the owcr aad divinity of Chrif-t. he confessej, "I am a sinful man. O Ijrd.' (2.) An other element was that clear and un reserved confession of Christ, or a sl.ttenjen! of Peter's fa'th fo.nnal'y n'ade. "And Simon P t r answerr-i and said. Thon sit the C'hrlt-t. the sun of the liUn God." Another qialitr or element U Ms deep Ue for Christ. But Peter l,Bd hi fau"t: s -tf love was one of them. He had a weeli Side; as we read of Peter we .ftea See eiMence of this weakness: be! seme. to be unstable: it reunited n j jn.v bis downfall. "Peter was too much gclJe.I by Impulse. He was too much a man of feeling. He acted too niuch on the spur of the moment. ' He was to" ha?ty. He was Inconsiderate. He N'-ofce . ithout tbiaklns. He wa,i swift to Kra!c, "low to hear. He was willing to build towers without count lug the cent. Heady wan he ever to so on a warfare on his own charge.1' One would iintu.alty wonder why Peter was so full of Inconsist nclea; why ho manifested so many weak in sses.i having ' been made leader cf the twelve, '., Doubtless, Peter mlseonptrved tin meaning of the mission of .Iis-ts. He certainly, with all the friends and enemies cf Jrsns, believed that It was the intention of the Ixrd to deliver Israel from Roman bondage; this was the nilKsicu of the Messiah a world- il;.' de'lverance, rather than a spiritfal deliverance, a saving from slavery of the flesh', rather than being saved from sin. The throne of David, of Solomcn, we i to be re-established. In this tuna Peter a'so "trusted that it , was He who should redeem IsraoV x "redeem" Israel, then, was to )reak the bands of despotism and gv0 Bgfli the oil time heritage, Riorlous freedom.- What a kingdom j would be theirs, with the Son of God 0n the throne! when Jesus resolutely turned his i viplea and apostles, was undeniably shocked, delisted, dismayed. Why die, hen "all power in heaven and in earth" belonged to the Master?, He Jitl not realize that Christ had come to enact the sacrifice of which the raschal lamb ha 1 been but a shadow, n figure. He could not yet rnderstand Christ's High Priesthood. Peter's weakness lay In not "understanding (Jed's plan, in not being conversant with the deeper meaning of the Teacher's words. He lacked in Intel tfirent, eouvlctlon. He was guided largely by Impulse and the truths t.!at he felt were not ballasted solidly with tnowlodge. "How important to be carefully Instructed in the trotjit How necessary to have clear Ideas of God's-way of salvation! How ludls- I pcnsable for safety and strength, es pecially iu err dangerous a?e. to Have t lcty bi'llt on principle, principle on conviction, and conviction on clear Conceptions ol God's truth. The most glowing spurts of eiithuisaui. the most fervid feelings of love, cannot if.speuse with tue necessity of in struction. We still need the cata- rhism." To return to Peter and his "fall.' Having followed Jesus to the High Prlst's palace, he was accosted by a woman porter, one who kept the gate, f.nd charged with being a follower of Jer:i s. He made a simple denial to this charge. The second time, how ever, he was more closley questioned nnd more jiositiveiy charged with being a "follower f the prisoner." Now came the time for desperate de. nlal on Peteer's part. "And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man." Some little time after this he was more directly than ever ac cused by a kinsman of Malchus. Others atandlng by joined In the charges, telling him his very dialect betrayed him. Now the climax of de l:lal. "Then began he to curse and to awear, saying I know not the man." What f (all for an apostle, the spokes man, the leader! Fallen, fallen. "A few hours after that clear predictio n meant to prevent his denial: 'Beforo tne cock crow twlc thou shalt deny tne thrice.' -An those tender words, 'But I have prayed for thw." And that confident boasting, 'Though all shall be offended, yet will not I." 'I am ready to go with thee to prison and to death." SELECTION OF A HUSBAND. Considerations Which Should Guide Young Women in This Most Im portant Step in Her Life. Iter. Dr. L D. Rasa of Cirrary Bap tist church last night preached the first of hii se-les of sermons on Love I ntirtshfp and Marriage, taking for his subject last evening "The Seleo t Ion 'of a Husband." based upon the text: Wilt Tho ro With This Man? and She Said I Will Go." found In Gen. 24:58. The church n crowded with people every seat being taken and chairs filled the aisles. Dr. Bass said his Ideas would probably be new t- many as they were scriptural. He spoke In part as follows, after reciting the marriage of Isaac and Rachel, Mid drawing a vivid picture of mar riage and its laws as presented In the bible; In ordinary conversation how often It. is said: "Von should not marry a loan you do not love." and how sel o'cni we hear, "you should net marry e man jou do not reverence." Our glils are targ'.it. that they must marry t the n)an ther love without any tt'iiousiit of reverence at all. The "--jcciisec,tience 1 they persist In marrr ipated men. vicious men. worthless men, merely became they love them rnd the terrible results which follow In nnhapplne. separations, wretch fine and even want, they bring on themselves and the grief which weighs opoii parents' hearts as they t-tand helpless in their loving pity sr" know n to all men.

T .. W Dick Spencer lived In a town near a great gorge, through which there ran a river full of rapids so fierce that no man had ever been able to devise a boat that could live In the swirl. As a result, whenever people wanted . to . cross from one ' side . of the gorge to the other they had to go many miles aronfid by way of a ford near th head of the river. Much time was wasted In tills ay. and at last the town authorities sent to a firm of engineers and gave them a contract to' build a fine steel bridge across the place. Within a few months the steel girders and beams were unloaded at the edge of the gorge,' and then men came to erect the bridge. But they had hardly begun before they Stopped again, for they realised sud denly that, while their plans pro vided for everything that, waa neces sary to build a bridge, they had not devised a way to get the first beams across. The gorge was nearly half a mile wide, and there was no beam or plank long enough in the whole world, of course, to lay across, the ehaam so that men could begin to work. ', Dick's father was the, Mayor of the town, and when he went down to the river to 'see the engineers they told him their trouble. "We -wish that yon would let . is have the best klte-fiyer among the boys of the town. We may be able to do what was done at the NlasaJ 5orge. where the engineers got the first cable across by flying a kite from or.a bank to the other, and then by means of the kite string they hauled a heavier string over, and ao on. until they got a stria; heavy enough to haul a rope over, and the the rope pulled the first wire cable across." , Dli li who held the honor of be ing the best kite-flyer, hurried home and returned with his biggest kite; but (hough he flew It with all hla skill, It was Impossible to get the VHe over the gorge. Whichever way the 'wind blew, there was an eddy over the rapids that drove the kite back evet-y time. That night at supper Dick's father said that he was much worried. "The town needs the bridge very badly. Indeed," said he, "and we all lose a great deal of time and money be cause we have none. But the build ing of that dam Is going to cost more than $0.000. and that means that we will have to Increase taxes heav ily and keep them up for a good many years to come. The town coun cil la to meet to-morrow, and I hard ly know what to say to them. It seems too bad that we should have to spend $50,000 Just because we can't get a line serosa the gorge." The next morning Dick went fish ing for bass In the gorge. The bass did not bite and gradu ally he allowed his line to run out farther and farther Into the current. Suddenly he noticed that after It had gone about a hundred feet an eddy would seise the halt and pnTl It straight toward a rock that showed above the worst part of the rapids In the very middle of the river.,, He tried It again and again. Then he reeled in hurriedly an j ran ho-ne. Boon he ws back again In the gorge with a long reel of braided line and a great piece of wood, to wnlch he had affixed a score of old fish-hooks. He threw It Into the current and pla.ied'the line out swiftly nnMl the wood lodged against the rock! In the middle of the rapids. Then he made hl nd of ih line fast to a tree and scrambled op the Cliffs aad harried around to the ford three miles above. He cme down to the rapids again opposite to where he bad been standing. Here he tod out another piece of wood elmfar to the flrat and let It run with the current. After repealing It half a doren time. a swirl took It. against the very rock where the first piece of wood lay lodged; an1 byelever manipulation of his lln h atie- teeded at last In fosMug lh l0 to gether, so that their many hooks be came interlocked Then be secured th end of the line to a tree.

P.I j l(Ies Ahont the Knlnbow. 1 Iu many countries the rainbow la spol:rn of as being a great bent pump or fli hon tube, drawing water fro:n the earth by mechanical means Tri parts of Russia, In the Don coun try, and also In Moscow and vicinity. H Is known by a name which la equlyalent to "the bent w.ter pipe." In yearly all Slavonic dialects It lis known' by terms signifying "tho cloud siphon," and In Hungary it is "the pump," "Noah's pump" and ."Ood'a pump:" I The Malayan natives call It by tha same name that they do their band ed water cobra," only that they add ;totft' imeaning doiihie-headed) the equivalent in our language being "the. double-headed water.), snake They tell you that the bow Is a real thing of life, that It drinks with Its two .mouths, and that the, water is transferred to the clouds through an opening In the upper side of the cen tr of the great arch. . ?.Jn the province of Charkow, P; sla. the rainbow Is said to drain 'he wells, and to prevent this many are provided with heavy, tight-fitting stpne platforms. ( in the province of Saratov the bow Is said to be under the control of three angels, one of whom pumps 'the water, the second ."feeds," the clouds, and the. third sends the rain Many' Improbable and Impossible thlnirs would happen If yon could tonly get In reach of "the bow.' The little Turk Is told that if he would have a silver head, with gold teeth and ruby ejes, he has but to touch the orange stripe. In Greece they say that the person so unfortunate as to stumble over the end, of the bow will have his or her sex Immediately changed. Golden Days. . Insects That Build. When we speak or nests we are generally thinking of those famil iar structures of grass, wool, hay. moss and the like, in which birds are accustomed to lay their eggs or rear their young. As a matter of fact this Is only natnral, for birds, as class . represent nestbill(lers of the most notable the animal king- dom. Tet just as birds share with In sects .their , wonderful , powers, of flight, so the art of nest-btilldlng Is common to both these great dlvl slons of living creatures. Indeed It may bo ffirly claimed that. for va riety of structure and Ingenuity of contrivance Inserts deserve the first place among builders of nests and nurseries; and this place tbey would certainly hold fccre It not for. the fact that the results of their labors are frequently hidden from the eye of the casual wanderer. Take, for example, the case of the common wasp. Most people have a vague notion that wasps build nests, Some have even watched these In serts from a respectful distance le aning from a small hole In some sun ny bank. But what this subterra nean tunnel may lead to Is left open as a question. cTowivvy Bell, nnih jntf- ATA TAeir-ua IV3S Quietly Done!
