LESSON V.---April 30. GOLDEN TEXT."By love serve one another." Gal. 5:13. In our last lesson we left Jesus in the courts of the temple, Tuesday afternoon, discoursing wlth tbe Greeks and others. Soon after this he left the temple, and on the way to Beth- any he taught his disciples. Wednes- day seems to have been spent in re- tirement at Bethany. Thursday after- noon he sent two disciples to prepare for the Passover in an upper room In the city, Edersheim thinks it mar have been the home of John Mark, I. The Strife as to Who Should Be Accounted Greatest.--Luke 22:24-27, and Matt. 20:20-28. We cannot un- derstand the full meaning of our les- son without turning to the story of the strife recorded by I.uke; and af the request of James and John. and t, he consequent indignation of the other disciples recorded by Matthew and Mark. II. The Supper Scene.We must not think of a modern table, with chairs, as this scene is represented In many of the famous pictures, but we look upon a low. Eastern table, surrounded on three sides by couches or cushioned divans, "on which each guest reclines, lying on his" left ide, and leaning on the left hand. with his head nearest the table and his feet stretching back towards the ground. Each guest occupies a sep- arate divan, or pillow. Thus it was easy to wash their feet one after another." III. Four Side Lights on the Scene. Vs. 1-3. First Side Light. That Nothing Could Quench the Love of Jesus. 1. "Now before the feast of the pass- over." It was in the upper rooIa be- fare the supper began, while they were waiting for the supper to be served (v. 2). "When Jesus t=new," better as R. V., "Jesus knowing," being fully conscious. "That he should depart." The Greek expresses the act of going over from one place or sphere to another. His going away could not quench his love, "Having loved his own." and shown his love by coming into the world to make them his own. "His own" were the group of followers whom he had chos- en, and atso the world-wide circle ,f his disciples of which these twelve were the nucleus. "Which were in the world." The sphere of their la- bors and trials and service. He loved not only his own in heaven where they shine, in perfect glory, but also those in the world, still tainted with Imperfections. "He loved them unto the end." (1) To the uttermost limit of love, the greatest love known in the universe; and (2) with a love without end. Second Side Light, Jesus' Wisdom in Timing His Reproof. 2. "And sup- per being ended." Ended is not in the original. The meaning is, the supper being, beiug served., having commenced, while supper was in prog- ress. Third Side Light. The Loving Kindness of Jesus to Judas. "The devil having now (already) put into the heart," etc. There was still hope for Judas, sinee he was not so utter- ly lost as to plan his treacherr all by himself. Satan opened the door. ar, d Judas, looking in at the riches to which it opened, walked into the trap. Fourth Side Light. Jesus' Con- selousness of His Dignity." 3. "Jesus knowing." Fully conscious that he was the Son of God, with all power and glory, to which he was soon to return. This verse sets before us the infinite condescension of Jesus, and reinforces the lesson of the act that follows. No disciple could ever claim that he was too great, too glorious, Of too high rank, or too supreme power, to do the humblest service for man. Greatness ahd power are given for this very purpose. "And went to IV. Jesus Washes Hs Disciples' Feet.Vs. 4.11. 4. "Rlseth from sup- per." Showing that all were reclin- ing at the table. "Laid aside his gar- ments." His 0uer loose, flowing robes. "Took a towel," instead of the sual girdle. "and girded himself," Into this girdle the skh'ts of the un- derdress were tucked for menial serv- ice, for running, or for fighting. 5. "He poureth water into a basin." Over the feet, for the feet were not put into the water as with us, but the water is poured from aewer over a abstn held under them, and the feet are washed tn the falling stream. Hence It was difficult for any one to wash his own feet. "Began to wash." Implying that he had washed some of the feet before he came to Peter. 6. "Then eometh he to Simon Pet- er." "Shame and astonishmet shut the mouths of the disciples, and nt a sound broke the stillness of the room but the tinkle and plash of the water in the basin as Jesus went fret couch to couch. But'the silence was broken when he came to Peter." Dods. "Lord, dost thou wash y feet?" The emphasis lies first on thou, and then, a little slighter, em my. 7. "'Thou knowest not now; but thou ghalt know (understand) here- after." (1) Jesus explained the mean- ing to Peter after the work was com- Pleted. (2) As he advanced In knoWl- edge of Christ's kingdom, its spirit, and its work. as his own character developed, he Would be able to com- Prehend how this act symbozed the i whole mission of Christ, and ex- pressed the character and work of his disciples. (3) Hereafter in the heavenly world he wouhl know more of the heights and depths of its mean- ing. 8. "Thou shait never wash my feet." The negative is the strongest form possible. Peter had no yet learned his lesson. His first refusal, the out- burst of a generous impulse, could be explained and passed over. But this second one was self-righteous and proud, as if hd knew better than Jesus what ought to be done; "and was forthwith met by the swift re- buke of Jesus," "If I wash thee not. thou hast no part with me." Cannot share my kingdom, my character, my work; must be prepared to leave the room, and the company of disciples. 9. "Not my feet only, but also my hands and my head," If the washing meant having a part in the work and character of Jesus, and being with Jesus. he could not have enough of a cleansing so prectotis. In spite of his errors his heart glowed with love to his teacher, He had begun to learn his lesson. 10. "He that is washed," etc. We gala a clearer idea of it when we read it lu the revisions, which take ac- count of the different Greek words used for "wash." Lone, to wash the whole body, bathe; and nlpto, to wash a part of the body. "He that is washed (bathed) needeih not save to wash his feet," "The daily use of the bath rendered it needless to wash more than the feet. which were soiled with walking from the bath to the supper tabte."Dods. "And ye are clean." "He knew that at bottom they were good men; he knew that with one exception they loved him and loved one another: he knew that as a whole they were clean, and that this vicious temper in which they at present had entered the room was but the soil contracted for the hour. But none the less it must be washed off. And he did effectually wash it off by washing their feet. From a group of angry, proud, re- sentful men they were in five minutes changed into a company of humbled, meek, loving disciples of the Lord. They were effectually cleansed from the stain they had contracted."Dods. "But not all." He recognized that Judas did not have the clean nature represented by bathing. 11. "For he knew who (him that) should betray him." This shows that Jesus was referring to moral cleans- ing. Jesus knows that his children who are cleansed by the new heart, who are his sincere followers, are yet often soiled by walking through the dusty ways of life, and that they need daily to pray "Forgive us our tres- passes." V. The Teaching of this Object Lesson.Vs. 12-14. 22. "Wa et down." The word means reclined, as was customary at meals, "Know ye." Have ye understood the deeper, spir- itual meaning? 13. "Ye call me Master." Teacher, with the definite article, the teacher. "And Lord." One who has authority over you. You accept my instruc- tions, and obey my commands. 14. "If I then." The I is emphatic, "Ye also ought to wash one another's feet." Apparently this is what they had Just been unwilling to do when they first came in. Why This Fault Was Related of the Disciples. Because it was true. The picture of the disciples would have been incomplete, and have given a false impression, if only th good had been told. And this is one mark of the divine authorship of the Gospels. Men would naturally have concealed the faults of their saints and heroes "for the good of the cause," as the artist painted Alexander the Great's portrait with a finger over the scar on his face. "The Deadliness of Ambition In- stead of Love. "So far as you desire to possess rather than to give; so far as you look for power to command In- stead o to bless; so far as your own prosperity seems to groe out of con- test or rivalry of any kind, with other men or nations, so long are you aervlng the Lord of all that Is last and least, the last enemy that shall be destroyed, death; and, you shall have death's crown, with the worm coiled on it, and death's wages, with the worm feeding on them.'Ruskin, Modern  Painters. Vol. V., Peace, Following Christ's Example of Hum- ble service. It is only by realizing that this ROt of Jesus was not an as- sumed humility, but the performance of a real and needed, bat disagree- able service for the comfort of oth- ers, that we can rightly understand the lesson Jesus intended to teach . He that serves others; he that does the humblest service in order to re- lieve their wants, or cleanse their souls from sin; he that forgets him- self and seeks no honor, no high place, but only to serve and to help, and seeks out the poor, the sick, the obscure, the unpopular, in order to be their friend and helper,,--he does to them as Christ did to the disciples. Jesus' washing the feet of Judas the traitor shows the wide sweep of his love, and the love with Which his church should seek to help and save even the worst men that may enter the fold f the church. o.co THE TEACHER'S FOE Did Visiting Minister Little Good to Find It Out. ---- property, the late Nathaniel Whitmore of Gardlner, Mass.. more familiarly known by people of the Kennebee val- ley as "Uncle Nat" Whitmore, received naturally enough, numerous requests from various organizations to contrib- ute toward the work in which these organizations were interested. Sol. dora. however, did he respond to the appeals. On one occasion the minister of a certain church in Gardiner approached him, ony to be politely turned away, as many others before him had been on the plea of poverty. "But. Mr. Whitmore," said the di. vine, "you are reputed to be very rich. What, pray, since you have no chil- dren, do you intend to do with yo money when you dle?" "Uncle Nat" rubbed his long, bony hands togetlzer, and with a sinister smile on his face, replied: "My good sir, that is a secret I have "I had been teaching iu the city steadily for six years," said Miss James, whose recent return to the work from which she was driven by nervous collapse has attracted attention. "They were greatly overcrowded, especially in the primary department of which I had charge, and I had been doing the work of two teachers. The strain was too much for my nerves and two years ago anle. " I was prostrated mentally and phy- sically, sent in my resignation and never expected to be able o resume work. it seemed to me then that I was the most miserable woman on earth. I was tor- tured by nervous headaches, worn ou by inability to sleep, and had so little blood that I was as white as chalk. never confided to anyone, bt as you "After my active life, it was hard to are a minister of the gospel, and will. bear idleness, and terribly discouraging presumably, hold inviolable anything I to keep paying out the savings of years may say, I'm going to tell you." The clergyman assured Mr. whir- more that the secret would be well kept, whereupon the latter drew close and, in a tone of the greatest confi- dence, said: "When I die I'm either going to take my money with me or leave it behind." HEROISM IN EVERYDAY LIFE, There Displayed in Higher Form Than on the Battlefield. Prof. William James of Harvard uni- versity relates that upon a certain journey he was questioning with him- self whether or not the higher hero- ism of life was passing out of human society; and that at the very moment, he looked from the car window and suddenly got sight of a number of workmen performing some task on the dizzy ledge of an iron construction at a great height, says Success. This at once brought to his mind a sense of the everyday bravery of men in every- day occupations. It flashed upon him on the instant that the true heroism of life is found not only on the day of battle and in desperate adventures. but also in building every bridge, or in the ordinary day-by-day service of the world, whether of the sailor upon his deck, the brakeman upon his train, the lumberman upon his raft, or wher- ever else men are at work. "As I awoke to this unidealized heroic life around me," he says, "the scales seemed to fall from my eyes, and a wave of sympathy greater than I had ever before felt with the common life of common men began to fill my soul." Leuon in Addition. Speaking of milkmen, this story comes from one of the primary schools in Auburn. It was the lesson hour in combina- tion of objects. "Now," said the teacher by way of explanation, "you can't add apples and pears together and get Just apples ca, pears and you can't add marbles an( nuts and get Just marbles." At this moment a long, lean arm shot up from one of the back seats. The arm belonged to , who was the son of a milkman. "Well?" asked the teacher. The little fellow stood up by his desk and composed his countenance as best he could. "I know of two things that yov. can add tgether and get Jes' the ss.me riggers," said he stoutly. "Yer can add water ter an' glt Jes' mllk:"Lewiston Journal The Old-Timer. I'm weary of paint and powder. I'm weary of eyebrows and curls.

On the occasion of the great street parade, during the recent revival s vices inaugurated by Evangelist Daw- son of London, Eng., In which mini ters and men of all denominations and walks tn life took part, one enthusi. tstie divine, on seeing a man rush from a hrlUtantty lighted saloon to Join the ranks, exclaimed to his equally enthusiastic, but better in. formed frlen@: "See, even the hums from the saloons come to Join us." "That a bum?" replied the friend; "why, that is the president of Andover Theological Seminary. The president had been in the saloon to get recruits. Digging for the Thermometer. The town of Newton Junction, N. H., has always borne the reputation of being the coldest spot anywhere around tn winter. One bitter cold morning 'Stub Ed" Whittier, the ac- knowledged wit of the vlllae, came into HaverhiU on an early train. As he entered a downtown restaurant ,where he was well known, some one called ant, "Hello, Stub, how low is the thermometer at Newton this morn- ing?" "Wa-al," replied the rustic In his driest tone, "l can't tell yet yet, When I left they war digging fer It under the atatlo platform!" for medicines which did me no good." "How didyou get back your health F" 'A bare chance and a lot of faith led me to a cure. After I had suffered for many months, and when I was on the very verge of despair, I happened to read an account of some cures effected by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The state- ments were so convincing that I some- how felt assured that these pills would help me. Most people, I think, buy only one box for a trial, but I purchased six boxes at once, and when I had used them up, I was indeed well and had no need of more medicine. "Dr.WiUiams' Pink Pills enriched my thin blood, gave me back my sleep, re- stored my appetite, gave me strength to walk long distances without fatigue, in fact freed me from all my numerous ail- ments. I have already taught for several months, and ,I cannot say enough in praise of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills." Miss Margaret M. James is now living at No. 123 Clay street, Dayton, Ohio. Many of her fellow teachers have also used Dr. Williams: Pink Pills and are enthusiastic about their merits. Sound digestion, strength, ambition, and cheer- ful spirits quickly follow their use. They are sold in every drug store in the world, French Naval Program. The naval construction program of the French admiralty for 190i com- prises seventy vessels.

Great Britain is to have an habitual criminal law resembling those of some of our states. The plan now under consideration is that of an industrial penal settlement for the special ben- efit of such "habituals," where special efforts would be made to reform them, and opportunity given of regaining their liberty by industry and good con- duct, but only on probation.

ANOTHER RECORD IN LAND HUNTING, This Spring's Exodus to Canad Greater Than Ever. It was thought in 1903, when over forty-five thousand people went the United States to Canada. that limit of the yearl,y immigration the wheat zone of the Contineht been reached. But when in about as large a number of can ciUzens signified their of beOming settlers on lands, the general public were pared for the announcement of numbers in 1905. No surprise 'ore will be caused when it is known that predictions of fully thousand more in 1905 are in the fact that the Spring Canadaward is greater than it ever been. The special trains Omaha, Chicago, St. Paul, and other gateways has been ed. Many have gone to join and relatives who have homes for them and others have relying upon their own resources. lsfied that what others have done also be done by them.
