Adelaide Proctor tells the story of
a nun who kept the portal at a con
vent in France.
Her 1tart went
out t a soldier
she nursed; she
lefc the convent
and in Paris fell
Into a life of sin.
After years she
. crept back to the
convetit steps to
die. She was tak
en in and nursed
back to health,
when 101 Bi4e

had filled her
place in the con
vent through the years, and now that
e had come baclj it was awaiting

sition and few knew she had ever
The late Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman
used to tell this story to illustrate
God's gracious 'v of restoring his
erring saints. In oue text we have
one of the great scriptural examples
of such gracious restoration, from
which all may take comfort.
Christ Inquires of Peter, "Simon,
son of Jonas, lovest thou me more
than these?" Peter had protested that
though all others might forsake
Christ, he would never leave Him.
But he had shown, too sadly, thit he
did not love his Master "more than
these." How Christ's question must
have rebuked him ! And in his reply
it is to he noted that all the old spirit
of boasting is gone and there is no
claim to love Christ more than others
Some Searching Questions.
Peter's humility is shown in another
way. In Christ's question, the word
used for love, in the original, indi
cates an unselfish love which expects
no return-the love of friendship.
When Peter replies, he uses a lower
word for love, indicating a personal,
clinging affection whhic seeks return.
In other words, he has ceased to
boast of his love, not only as to quan
tity, but also as to quality. le only
dares to assert he is fond of Jesus!
Moreover, the third .time Jesus in
quired as to Simon's love, ie used
the same word, in the original, which
Peter had been using, as if to say:
"Are you sure you have even this
lower kind of love, that you are even
fond of me?" No wonder Peter was
grieved when Christ said unto him
the third time, "lovest thou me?" He
can only reply: "Lord, thou know
est all things : thou knowest that I
love thee." Peter feels he has so
'wing his love that only
. 1o knows all things, can
i not lose sight of the
game m.j-.ing the searching ques
tions of Christ. Thrice laid Peter de
niedl Him in public, and he is here
given tile prIvilege of thrice publicly
But our text deals not only with
Peter's confession, hut also with his
sonmmI ssion, "Feed my lambs." Inideed,

There is still aniothmer way in whlich
Christ's grace was mnanifested toward
Simon)5 On tile occiasion we are conisid
erin~g, ualt houghl it 1s somtimes111 not

IV. The Summary Method.
This method calls for the salient
facts of each lesson with a state
ment of its outstandI9g teaching.
Note the following suggestions:
Lesson 1. Asa cleared the land of
idolatry and called upon Judah to
seek the Lord. Because he rested upor
the Lord, God gave him victory over
Lesson 2. Athaliah attempted to
destroy the seed royal and then usurp
the throne. Jehoiada checkmated her
by hiding away Joash for six years
At an appointed time .Toash was
crowned king anid the usurper slain.
Every attempt to titwart God's pur
Lesson 3. Jesus arose from the dead,
showed himself to Iis (lisciples and
sent them forth as witnesses f'or IHim.
Certainty of the resurrection of Christ
is essential to witness for Him.
Lesson 4. Uzziah made a notable
civic andl military record, but in his
pridle lhe presumnptunously Intrudled
into the priest's ofice. As a judg
ment God smote him with leprosy.
"Pride goeth before destruction, andl a
haughty spirit before au fall."
Lesson 5. Isaiah's vision of God
brought him to a sense of his sin
fulness. Man's supreme need todlay
is a vision of God.
Lesson 6. Isaiah foresaw the end of
all strIfe In the wo 'Id through the
establishment of Christ's kingdom.
Peace and restoration shall come to
the earth when Christ shall come and
remove from men's hearts the cause
Lesson 7. Hezekinh led his people
back to God1. This he (lid by means oIf
the passover f'east. The only way for
a sinning and dlividled people to get
back to God andI he united is around
the crucilledl Lord.
Lesson 8. Through tihe repairing of
the temple the law (if God was found.
When it wa read before the king
It brought penitenit sorrow. God ac
ceptedi his penitence andl postponed
tihe evIl day.
Lesson 9. Jeremiah was arrested1
rnd birouight to t rial b(cauulse he~ bo1lly
prochlimed God's word to the nation.
The oneic whlomi Godl *15 to proclaim
illis word should faithfully dilschiarge
his duty regardless of whaint men~ may
d~o untio him.
L~essoni 10. .Jeholakim tried to de
stroy God's WVord by burning it. Try
ing to destroy God's Wordl wIll not
avert Ills judtgmients.
Lesson 11. Because of .Jeremiah's
ldelity' to God lie was cast into prison.
(Casting the prophet into the (dungeon
will not turn aside God's jud~gments.
Lesson 12. Nebuichadnezza r captured1
.Jerusalem and1( carried away the peo
pile caiptives. Tlhough God's judgments
tarry they event ually fall.

SLOGAN WELL WORTH WHILE
Campaign for the Ownership of Homes
a Movement All Good Citizens
It is to beI' hoped that the eatipaign
the object of which is to have every
family in Its own home may not lan
I guish soon, as it is all too likely to do.
Tenantry in large cities cannot be
abolished altogether; purhaps it would
be ufnlesirtble to do so. However, tens
of thousands of people would be better
off physically, lientally and morally
d(i they live under their own vine and
jig tree. Vastly too many people are
still' unnecessarily dependent upon the
wish and will of otfhers, industrially,
politically, socially ; a condition tend
Ing ever toward slavery, injustice gnd
unhappiness. Ownership of anything
spells independence in some measure,
though it often means restraint, too;
and to own one's home, where none
dre intrude or make afraid, is the
most satisfying of all.
The owner of a home Is logically q
better citizen, a more public-spirited
person, than he would be otherwise.
The condition of a neighborhood, the
quality of government, sanitary atil
social matters, are at their best where
most eople own their homes. What
does the average renter care for the
condition of his neighborhood! A bird
of passage, he seldom identiitles him
self with the progress or welfare of
the community, its does an owner, and
at the merest whim he is on the wing.
To own one's home is not generally
an easy accomplishment, but requires
resolution, self-restraint and tenacity.
Few slogans are more worth while.
CITY PLANNING PAYS WELL
Haphazard Method of Allowing Com
munity to Develop Is Poor Policy
and Costly in the End.
The civic leagues and societies that
get after the authorities to compel the
cleaning up of cities and offer prizes
and other inducements for welI-kept
.awns, attractive flower beds, re
formed back yards and the like are
advancing culture and civilization.
Many cities have followed Washing
ton's example and have art commis
sions that pass upon all public work
to keelp it in harmony with some es
tablished plan of artistic development.
We should go further than that. Our
building departments carefully ex
amine every plan made for private as
well as for public buildings and pre
scribe just how the walls shall be for
strength, how high the building may
go, what the sanitary details must be.
The people have become used to such
control and direction. The city art
commission should have greater power
and should co-operate with the build
Ing department and pass on all plans
for all buildings, privaite as well as

Children Cry For
Special Care of Baby.
That Baby should have a bed of its own all are agreed. Yet it
is more reasonable for an infant to sleep with grown-ups than to use
a man's medicine in an attempt to regulate the delicate organism of
that same infant. Either practice is to be shunned. Neither would
be tolerated by specialists in children's diseases.
Your Physician will tell you that Baby's medicine must be
prepared with even greater care than Baby's food.
A Baby's stomach when in good health is too often disarranged
by improper food. Could you for a moment, then, think of giving
to your ailing child anything but a medicine especially prepared
for Infants and Children ? Don't be deceived.
Make a mental note of this:-It is important, Mothers, that
you should remember that to function well, the digestive organs of
your Baby must receive special care. No Baby is so abnormal that
the desired results may be had from the use of medicines primarily,
prepared for grown-ups.
