tests of work and time.

TEXT Not ns though I linil nlrcmly at
tained, cither were already perfect. Let
U3 therefore ns many ns bo perfect be
thus mlndod.-Phll. 3:12, 15. .
This text mako3 it clear that there
Is a sonso in which Christians can not
bo perfect and an
othor sense in
which they may
states clearly that
ho has not already
1b already perfect,
01 as tho Revised
" m a d o perfect.'
Tho verso preced
ing speaks of the
resurrection o f
tho dead, so that
his disavowal evi
dently hub to do
with tho perfec
tion which will como in tho future. It
may seem to some unnecessary that
a man should disavow this final per
fection slnco ho is evidently not yot
raised from tho dead; but the human
mind Is capablo of very strange things,
and this same apostle Paul speaks ot
some in his day who taught that the
resurrection Is past already. On
somo such basis, It seems, that teach
ers aroso who declared that oven now
we may reach tho perfection which bo-
longs to tho resurrection state. The
apostle Is cloarly against such a doc
trine. Bishop Moule, ono of the most saint
ly men tho modern church has pro
duced, in commenting upon this pas
sago says: "As far as my own obser
vation goes, bucIi viows (I. e. of per
fection) aro not uncommonly attended,
In those who hold them, by a certain
oblivion to personal shortcomings and
inconsistencies; by nn obscuration of
consciousness, and of conscience,
moro or loss marked, towards the sin
fulness of ordinary, overyday viola
tions of tho law of holiness in respect
of meekness, humbleness of mind, long
Bufforlng', sympathy, and other quiet
Indeed, tho saints of all the ages
unlto with Paul in declaring that they
nro not already perfect. Tho apostle,
aftor suffering many things for
Christ's sake so that ho bore In his
body tho marks of tho Lord Jesus,
writes of himself as "chief of sinners
John Bunyan although ho spent twelve
years in Bedford jail for his Lord
calls his lifo story "Grace Abounding
to tho Chief of Sinners." When John
Wesley thought ho was dying, he re
viewed his lnbors of sixty years, but
could find no peg upon which to hang
any hope of salvation; ho could only
repeat the sentiment of the hymn,
I the chief of sinners nm,
But Jesus died for me.
Tho same spirit was manifested by
Charles Spurgeon, who said during tho
serious illness, that If he got well ho
would havo many things to preach,
but Just at that time four words were
enough for him, "Jesus died for mo."
Dr. A. J. Gordon was n man of such
saintly character that his very faco
gave ovldenco of tho Indwelling light.
But tho other portion of our text
speaks of a sonso In which wo may
bo perfect. t Tho context sIiowb that
tho apostle is using tho flguro of n run
ner in a race. Ho has not yet at
tained the prize, but forgetting the
things which aro behind and reaching
forth unto those which are before, he
presses toward tho mark. It Is this
attitude to which tho word "perfect"
is applied. Tho man has laid aside
tho weights and tho easily besetting
sin; he is not content with what ho
has attained, but forgetting that which
1b behind, ho presses with neck
Btretchod forth and every muscle
strained, to tho goal. It will bo seen
at onco that this sort of perfection Is,
very Imperfect and 1b In no senso a
finality. It only propares us to bo
made porfoct In tho day of Christ's
coming. Ncvortholcss wo aro bound
by tho graco of Christ to fulfill this
ideal and not to put him to shamo.
Two matters aro Involved in tho ox
hortation to bo "Uiub minded." FirBt
of all if wo feel llko tho apostle, wo
will havo tho lowly estimate of our
selves of which wo havo spoken, tho
fooling that wo havo not attained.
Veiy far from Christian perfection Is
pflflo; on tho contrary, humility is its
rory essence Again, If wo aro per
fect in tho sonso of which tho apostle
!poaks, wo will emulate him Jn
pressing forward for tho prlzo of final
glory. ThlB ib tao Tory opposite of

Is said that Thonvaldscn onco wept
becauso ho was satisfied with a Btatuo
ho had mado. "Alas," ho said, "I shall

my Ideal." How ought they to bo

tonaistency, are satisfied! Llfo man!

not growing may well examine him

EIow good it is that tho apostlo goes
on to aBBuro us that "if in anything

voal ovon this unto you," May ho glvo

PRUNING THE BERRY BUSHES
Blackberries and Raspberries May Be
Trimmed Any Time After Leaves
(By R. Q. WBATIIEHSTONE.)
Tho question is often asked as to
tho amount of pruning necessary for
blackberry and raspberry bushes ai?8
when this should bo dono.
This pruning of raspborry and black
borry buBhes may bo dono at anytlme
after tho leaves havo fallen. If I
could have my choice as to tho date I
would do tho pruning at tho closo of
tho wintor. But thoso who have largo
plantations aro obliged to do tho prun

thoroforo to such people I recommend

Whoro tho winters nro sovoro, the
plants are bent down and each bush
held down closely to tho ground for
protection. I would not recommend
pruning theso bushes thus protected
until tho wintor Is past, and tho buds
are beginning to Btart growth.
