Ihe Butler Boys of Fono Rco.
Every morning the people of the
large towns of Porto Rico are awaken?
ed by little merchants crying "Butter!
Butter of thc country!"
These are the butter boys who go
trotting in each morning as soon as
the tropical dawn begins, to sell the
native butter which has been made by
their mothers thc day before.
Each little merchant carries a plate
on his head, balancing it expertly fike
a juggler, and never bothering tc
steady it with his hand, whether he
is running or making change.
The plate contains about fifty or
sixty "pats" of the stuff. lt isn't
very good, although it seems delicious
to the Porto Ricans, because then
climate is nol adapted for keeping but
ter well; so they are accustomed to
an article that would seem rancid ind
strong to the luckier persons in the
The "pats" are very small, weighing
less than an ounce each, and they sell
for about one cent. The customers
of thc butter boys usually buy just
enough to serve for one meal.
The butter boys' mothers don')
make this butter in a churn. They
merely shake milk or iream in a big
jar till it is fairly solid. Then they
put in lots of salt and send it tc

be if people who lose their tempers

results 6he had had from your Vegetable Compound, and decided to try what
it would do for me. and used it for three months. At the end of that time 1
was a different woman, the neighbors remarked it, and my husband fell in

( I. The seventy sent forth (vs. 1-3). 1.
After these things." After Christ and
his disciples made their tinal 'leparture
from Galilee. According to Andrews this
took place early ia November. They are
then supposed to have journeyed alo.ig the
borders bet Wt en Samaria and' Galilee east?
ward to the River Jordan. They crossed
over into Peres and then turned south
toward Jerusalem. "The Lord appointed.'' j
This appointment was temporalv and not
pcrmaaent like the appointment of the |
twelve apostles. "Seventy ethers" (lt. V.) I
ihe twe.ve apostles had been commissioned i
md sent mu about a year before this. As
the number ol apostles had reference t*
the number of the tribes of israel, so the
stventy di-ein'cs sent out rall to mind the
number oi Ciders who were chosen to as?
sist Moses in governing the people. The
number also corresponds to the number
.m members of the Sanhedrin. "And sent
them." The chief purpose of this sending
was not to train thew messengers for a
later independent mission, but it was a
new attempt to influence to decision at
least a part of the people, and by word
md deed to prepare tlie coming of the
kingdom of Clod in the midst of them.
'Two and two." The same manner in
which He sent out the apostles. This was
lone: 1. To teach them the necessity of
concord a..iong the ministers of righteous?
ness. 2. That in the mouth ot two wit?
nesses everything mifht be established. 3.
J hat they might comfort and support each
ither in thpir difficult labor. "Before Hil
;aee." They were to visit those cities and
/aces that Ile intended soon to visit.
C. "Harvest truly is great." The har-"
?est is plenteous, tlie <?iain is ripe aid
(poiling and mu?t be garnered immediate
y or it will be lost. There was need tor
mob a mission as the district, in l'crea
iad been little visited bv .Jesus. There
Acre multitudes who had not yet heard
>f the coming of "thc kingdom of God."
'Laborers are tew."' True workers have
always been hard to lind. This is the
;rca:est calling in the world, and yet there
ire so few who are ready to make the
cnall. temporary self-denial that is neces?
sary in order to see success in Christ an
rork. "Pray ya therefore." They must
<et out with prayer, and have a deep con
:ern for precious sou's.
II. Various instructions given (vs. 441).
The instructions given them weie distinct
'rom and yet similar to the instruction..
$iven the twe.ve apostles. The twe.ve had
greater authority to work miracles, and
they were to receive persecutions which
ire not mentioned with reference to the
seventy. 4. "Carry neither purse, etc."
rru=?t God for your support. Thc purse
mu a small leather bag for carrying money.
Thc scrip was a traveling bag used for
:anying provisions when traveling. "Nor
shoes." The shoes were made for use in
the howe. They did not need these; the
sandals they were wearing would bc sid

ing not absolutely necessary for their jour
6, "Son of peace." Any truly pious
nan who is worthy of such a blessing.
7. "In the same liou.--? remain." rhett1
*tay was to be short. They were not to
choose the besl ??- and nfljr :
poor, and were not to spend time gor^
from boase to house in search of better
accommodations. "Is worthy." Tiie ono
who rea'ly labors is worthy of being sun
ported, hut drones need not expect the
workers to feed them very long.
S. "As are ret betore you." Probab'y
Christ here refprs to the traditions ot the
?'ders about their meat. They were ex?
tremely critical, end a nish of inWt eoifd
hardly be set before them hut thfro was
some scruple concerning it. Christ won d
not hare them regard those things, but
sat what was spt beforo them. 9. "Ilea';
and say." Their mission was twofold: 1.
They were to gain th" attention of the
people by healing their bodies.. 2. The im?
portant part of their work was to preach
tbe gospel of the kingdom.
10. "Receive you not." Do not receive
vou kindly and accent your message. "Go
your wav.-:." You have no time lo con?
tend with them. Do not cast your "pearls
before swine." "Into the streets." 'I lie
most pubiic place. Let every one see the
result of rejecting the trui'is concerninje
tbe kingdom of God. ll. "Wipe oft'
arainst you." The Jews considered them?
selves deiiled with the dust of heathen
countries, and the action here enjoined did
noe exnress anger, but a warning. It sig?
nified that these .Jews were ho y no longer,
and was, in reality, placing them ni a
level with the heathen. "Be ye sure." Thc
message was again to bc repeated, if. per?
chance, some might hear at the last mo?
Ul. Impenitent cities upbraided ^vs. 12
Ifi). 12. "In that day." lu tiie judgment
day. "Sodom." See Gen. 19. ( This was
one of the "cities of the plain" that was
destroyed by God with fire because of ks
Kieat wickedness, lt was situated in th*
fertile plain of .Jordan, but its exact loca?
tion is not known. "Than for that city."
Our Lord is here threatening the gui'ty in?
habitants of the cities who reject Hi? gos?
pel, and font His words ?e learn: !.
That there is a future day in which the
inhabitant! of the earth are to stand he
fore the judgment seat of God and receive
their sentence. 2. The decree of punish?
ment will he measured according to the
privileges enjoyed and the guilt incirred.
3. Acceptance of the message of God is
the only method of escape and the on'y
means of salvation.
13. "Woe unto thee." "A'as for thee!"
This is an exclamation of pity, and it is
evident that our Lord used the words in
this sense. "Chorazin." A town on the
northwest shore of thc Sea of Galilee. Ls
location is not definitely known, but it
was near (Viemaum. "Beihsaida." On
the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee,
north of Capernaum. It was the birth
p'ace of Philip, Andrew and Peter.
Mightv woiks." The great miracles. A
miracle is a sign, a wonder, and a mightv
deed (Acts 2: 22: 2 Cor. 12: 12; Heb. 2: 1.1
14. "More tolerable." The degree of
four misery will be greater than even that
of Tyre and Sidon. "At the judgment."
The final judgment. 15. "Exalted to
heaven." A Hebrew metaphor, expressive
?sf the utmost prosperity, and the enjoy?
ment of the greatest privileges. "Down to
hell." Capernaum was to be brought down
to a state of utter ruin and deso'ation.
This prediction was literally fulfilled soon
after this in the wars between the Jews
and the Romans. 16. "Heard h: despis
?th." He that welcomes the apostles and
listens to them is listening to the voice of
?e3us Christ and of God Himself, while
the one who despiseth the apostles aud
will not listen to the message they bring
Ls really despising and rejecting .Jesus
f'hrist and God the Father who sent Him.

Canadians Justly Indignant.
Canada is incensed at statements
made about it in certain textbooks
used in English schools. Here is a

The Atlantic coast is the most useful
at present, hut most o' it is frozen

is another astounding item of in?
formation. The English hoy is further
informed that "in a blazing forest
there is the risk that a fallen trunk
or a branch may at any moment bloc!?
the line or throw the train off the
rails." But here is the gem of the
collection: "The chief states at pres?
