'After these thing.-.'' P.. V. Sonia think that when John is telling soma ?vent which follows immediately after the iosl thing nat rated, he uses the expression 'after this thing" (chap. 2:12), but that chen tittie has been an interval ot time oe uses the expression "alter these thing.-." "A feast." There baa been much differ encc of opinion as to what, feast thi6 was, *>ut it is the opinion now of the best writ frs that it was the Passover. 2. "By th? ?heep gate" (R. V.) We know from Neh. V. 1, 32; 12:30 that then was a sheep gate; ?o called probably from sheep for sacrifice being sold there. It was near the temple. "The Hebrew tongue." Hebrew- hen. means Aramaic, the language spoken at the time, not the old Hebrew of the Scrip lures. "Bethesda." This name does not iccur elsewhere, lt means "house of mer? ry." The .site il not identified with cer? tainty. The traditional spot is near Castle Antonia. But Dr. Robinson thinks "the fountain of the Virgin," an intermittent spring in the southeast of thc city, near the pool of(J>ilaom, waa Bethesda. "Five porches." These porches were probably Dovered arcades, colonades or verandas, open at one side to the air, but, protected against the sun Ot rain overhead. In a hot sountry like Palestine such buildings arc very necessaiy. 3. "Multitude." The sick :ongregatcd here in great numbers. ll. Jesus heal- an impotent man (vs. 5-0). ,">, "An infirmity." The original im? plies rather a loss of power than a positive disease; probably it was a nervous disease jf paralytic type. "Thirty and eight years." Thc duration of the illness is mentioned, either to show how inveterate and difficult it was to heal, or rather, ac? cording to verse 0, to explain the deep ?ompassion witli which Jesus was affected dh beholding thc unhappy saan. From verse 14 ve may infer that his disease was thc result of the sins of his youth. 0. "Knew." The word "knew" in tbe original indicates one of those instantan pous perception* by which thc truth be Mme known to Jesus according as the task if the moment demanded. Verse 14 will 'how that the whole life of the sufferer is nreseut to the eye of Jesus, as that of the Samaritan woman waa in chapter 4. "Saith unto bun." Usually Christ waited until He waa asked before He relieved the sui feting, but in this and a few other cases lie healed without being- asked. He read ihe man's past life and present condition of mind, and saw that he was in a state lo receive spiritual good from the healing. ''Wilt thou?" Why does He ask a ques? tion to which the answer was so obvious? Probably in order to rouse the sick man out of his lethargy and despondency. 7. "No man." He was friendless as welt a- siek. "ls troubled." This spring, prob? ably the fountain of the Virgin, is inter? mittent to thia day, and various travelers have seen it suddenly rise from five inches to a foot in five minutes. Whedon thinks that Ihe moving of the waters arose from ?.n underground connection of thc pool with the city water works. Tlie occasional mid intermittent disturbance of the water i* not to be understood as a regular occur? rence, but as something sudden and quick? ly pasing away. Hence thc man's waiting ami complaint. 'Put me into the pool. Literally, "in order to throw" me into the pool; perhaps implying that the gush ol water did not last long, and there waa ne time to be lost ia quiet carrying. "While I am coming." Thus picturing the extreme haste aud rapidity with which the favor? able opportunity was seized. There was a rush and scramble for the one chance. 8. "Rise," etc. Commands like these would test thc man's faith and obedience. As in the case of the paralytic (Mark 2:9], Christ made no enquiry as to the mani faith. Christ knew that he had faith, and the man's attempting to rise and carty lu? bed after thirty-eight years of impotency was an open confession of faith. "Bed." Probably onlv a mat or rug, still common in the tfast. ~d. "And walked." With thc command was given the power of obe dience. So the sinner who is bidden to commit himself to Christ need not wait for any compulsion. As he makes the ef lort he will find divine power within him? self. 'Sabbath." The reventh day of the week, the Jewish Sabbath. III. Persecution ot the Jews (vs. 10-13). 10. "Not lawful." Jeremiah had com mended, "Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day" llb: 21), and the Jews interpreted thia as for? bidding the carrying of the lightest weight. But Jeremiah's meaning is made clear by Neh. 13:15: "Treading wine presses on thc Sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lad? ing asses." etc. "To forbid this man from ?airying his bed was like forbidding a mod? ern man to move a cami) stool or a chair" ll. "He?said." unquestionably tba nords seem to say that one who could da such a wonder as healing me must certain? ly have the right to tell me what to d<> He had been authorized by one endorsed as sent from Crud. And tIii- was indeed the very ground which Christ Himself took. 12. "Who i- the man" flt. V.) They ignore the mit ade. and attack the command. They a-k not, '"Who rared thee, and therefore ntuel have divine au t Dori ty?" but, "Who told thee to break the Sabbath, and therefore could not have ii'.'" 13. "Knew not" (ll V.) Jeana had been iu Jerusalem but little, and thc mau who was healed had probably never -ecu Jlim. "Conveyed himself away." Ifctter, withdrew. Literally, "slipped aside." be? came auddenlf[ lost to sight. "A inuit; tilde." etc This may be understood av explaining cither why be withdrew?to avoid the crowd, or the manner in whi'-l he withdrew?by disappearing in tbs crowd. Either explanation makes gooo sense. IV. Jesus gives advice and warning (v Iii. 14. "Afterward.'' Probably SOOti ai toward; in a day or so. "l-'indeth him" Jeana had His eye on the man; Hts work with him was not yet finished: this meei ing was not accidental. "In the temple." A good place for the man to he. "Sin nfl more." God a-ks this of every sinner And yet there are thone who insist that it is impossible to liva without sin in th;< life, hut if such ia the case then Jesus asked thia man to do the impossible. 'A worse thing." A paralysis from which no pool can i ettore and no Saviour will de? liver: the most terrible catastrophe of the soul's eternal history. V. The man bears testimony (v. I'j). 13. "Told thc .lews," etc. In reply to the inquiry they had made of him a short time before, partly in obedience to the authori? ties and partly to eomnletc his apology for himself. He expected, probably, in the simplicity of his heart, that the name ot Him whom so many counted aa a prophet, it not as the Messiah Himself, would have been sufficient to stop the mouths ol gain* sayers. --.. ..._ Spaniel Tossed on Locomotive Pilot.

Dun & Co.'i weekly review oJ trade says: Trade' progrr-.se.- steadily, all specula? tive excesses having been avoided thin far, and the numerous negotiations now pending indicate that the maximum ol activity is yet to conic. Some irregu? larity in reports for the first month wera undoubtedly due to exceptionally leven weather. The weakness ot cotton also had a tendency to check operations ai thc South. Taken aa a whole, however, results for January were very much bet? ter than in thc same month last year, ' particularly as to failures. Distribution ot merchandise is once | more on a liberal scale; traffic blockades having disapproved and in many cases large clearance sales having dispos? ed of burdensome stock;. Collectors arc still somewhat irregular, but on tbs whole there is little cause for u'tnplaint Manufacturing plants arc making the best returns. Iron furnaces and steel mills operate dose to their full capacity and thc quarterly report of the leading concern showed an enormous tonnage ol business on thc books at thc end ot tin year, despite thc fact that thc closing mouths of 1904 made very good exhibits. Woolen mills maintain records of activ? ity, but there is still much to be desired at cotton plants and shoe factories have only a moderate amount of business in sight. Commercial failures this week in tha United .States arc 250 against 305 last year, 335 the preceding week and 246 the corresponding week last year.

Thc wife of au out-of-town clergy? man had been away from home for n week and had left certain light house? hold duties tor her husband to attend to during her absence, among them the getting of bis own breakfast. On her return she was dismayed to learn that a brother clergyman had come to visit him and had remained one night at the rectory. In fear and trembling she Inquired Into thc details of his entertainment. "I took him with me to thu boarding house for dinner," her husband told Her, "po that part was all right; and 1 knew that you always kept, thc guest room ready for occupancy, so I was safe on that point. The only thing that I ara not sure of having been satisfactory is his breakfast. Ho said on retiring that he would like to be called at 7 o'clock, and that all be would want to eat would be two soft r-ggs, so I put on the eggs at. exactly <", and then I called him.
