left the Heavenly uloiy and humbled
Himself to take a heman form - nt a

"a little lower than the angels."
Then the I.o-os imml.led Himself

Following His Steps.
Those wli'i desire to hecome momlers
of the New Creation must first turn
away from sin and toward Jod. This
must he a heart turnin.ij-a change of
disiMisition. They must really see that
s-in is a most injurious tiling. The pen

T'niverse has ntta Iied to sin Is death,

killing ouch other. They neither know
what Christianity is nor manifest its
spirit. But Ciod knows who are tares
and who are wheat. When the wheat
class aire changed in the First llesur
rect'on. the tares will h' humid tle
stroed as, tares, not as human Liolnsrs.
In the parahle cur Lord explains that
the field is the world neither the
wheat nor the tares are the world. The
earth represents the world, out of
which jrrow the win. 'it and the tares.
The seed of Truth enterinjr the world
has brought forth the children of the
Kingdom. The seed of Error dropped
Into the earth has brought forth chil
dren of error, children of the levil. the
jrroat source of error. They should
neither think themselves Christians
nor l o imitation Christians. All should
know that there ate but two classes,
real Christians and the world.
Honesty the Fundamental Quality.
Accordimr to the Bible Cod desire
only Iti.tKi) members in the Body of
Christ." He semis forth His Message,
and it rea hes only those for whom it
is designed. All others will have their
opportunity during the Messianic Kinu
dom. when for a thousand years The
Christ will restore and uplift all the ami obedient of Adam's race
to the original perfection lost in Eden
and redeemed at Calvary.
There are different things which hin
der people from umlerstamlinir ami ap
preciating the Messa.ce. The onetpm'
ity which Cod is seeking seems to be
that of honesty. Wherever the Truth
oes. it touches those honest hearted
ones who are not too much blinded by
the Adversary. Cradnally these real
ize that our irreat Cinl has generously
purposed a New Creation, of which
Jesus is to be the Head, and the
Church the Body. When we be.uin to
see this, our minds irradually open:
for Cod beirets us with His Holy Spir
it and, as the Apostle explains, we re
ceive a spiritual enlightenment en
ablinir us to understand the deep
things of Cod, which we could not un
derstand before we became members
of i ;d"s fa miiy.
It is one thin to enter into a cove
nant, however, and another thins to
ktvp it. Some have very fallen flesh,
and others very noble flesh. But Cod
is not proving the tlesh; He is trying
the spirit. I 'eutet onomy 1M:::.I What
counts with Him is the real sentiment
of the heart, the desire. 1 o your In-st
to strive ins t sin, and earnestly
seek to put away all the weaknesses
of the flesh. Cod does not wish any
of the called to fail. Only those who
ate not sulhciently loyal and who fail
to develop the riuht character will be
Garments Spotted and Garments White
Cod has so arranged that if overtak
en in a fault we may be helped out of
or.r diiiiculiy. From the time whin we
were presented to the Father, the merit
of Christ's righteousness covers our
uuwillini; imperfect ions. We must
wear this robe of Christ's righteous
ness until we shall have finished our
course; fur after our resurrection
change we shall have no blemishes.
Now, however, we must watch, and
keep our garments unspotted from the
world. The New Creature must pass
through the world, coming in contact
with it in all the affairs of life, and
yet keep unspotted from evil.
Probably every New Creature except
our Ford Jesus has gotten spots on his
garment at some time. But these mnst
be removed; for no one will be admit
ted into the presence of Jehovah Cod
whose robes are spotted. There is only
one cleansing fluid which will remove
these spots "The blood of Jesus Christ
His Son cleanseth us from all sin."
il John 1:7.1 These words do not refer
to flu original cleansing; they are not
addressed to sinners, but to those who
are robed In Christ's righteousness.
Both in the original Creek and in the
English tlie thought of a progressive
work is set forth-the blood keeps
cleansing. As long as we retain these
robes ami have need of cleansing, tlie
bhv.d of Jesus Christ is the stain-remover
which Cod has provided.
When we first ontue to the Lord for
forgiveness, all our sins were counted
as Adamie pins-those which came
through Adam's failure to obey the
Lord. If we had an individual respon
sibility in the sense that we consented
to some of these sins, we no doubt re
ceived a measure of punishment. This
we may still be bearing in the way of
sickness, disease, etc But our share
in the ondemnatio;i inherited from
Adam is all covered by the merit of
Christ's righteousness.
After we become the Lord's, we have
the new nature, which does not love
sin; but we also have weaknesses of
the flesh, against which the new na
ture is striving. Nevertheless it is not
Mssit)le for any fallen human leing
to live without sin. St. John says that
v. hoevcr thinks of himself as being sin-l-ss
deceives himself. (1 John 1 :S.) He
may not know that he Is lying, but the
Word of Cod says that not one of man
kind can keep himself perfect. St. I'aul
says the same tiling; we cannot do tlie
things that we would. (Bomans 7:15
21.) The New Creature would do per
fectly, but it Is hampered by the flesh
Nt one in tlie whole world is right
eous, as the Scriptures declare. (Ko
mans 3:P.) All Cod's people have
these inherited blemishes and Imper
fections. Therefore lie has arranged
for the cleansing of these things. If
It were possible to be without sin. there
would be no arrangement for our being
The blood of Christ, which represents
the merit of Christ, is sufficient not
only for the sins of the past, but for
every sin which is attributable to the
weaknesses of the flesh, our inheritance
from Father Adam. But the blood of
Jesus Christ does not cover one wilful
sin. God knows how to provide for
sins partly w ilfnl and partly due to in
herited weakness. The New Creature
cannot sin wilfully. If one delighted
in Kin and wished to commit entirely
wilful sin. It would be proof that be
had lost the Spirit of God completely.
Whatever transgression is not wilful
is one of weakness of the flesh either
Adamie weakness in the person or by
reason of temptation from others.
How to Apply the Elood.
Whoever finds a spot on his robe
should go to the Lord in prayer, ex
pressing regret ami by faith accepting
the offer of cleansing through the blood
of Jesus Christ. The spot is removed
by the asking of forgiveness and the
application of the blood. Some one
might say. If people realized that they
could be so easily forgiven of their
sins, they would become very careless.
But the tendency is rather in the opio
site direction, we reply.
Every New Creature in Christ is very
desirous of being an honor to his Heav
enly Father. Therefore he is very much
disappointed when he finds himself
committing sin speaking evil, show
ing impatience, acting unjustly, etc. As
soon as lie recognizes his conduct as
wrong, he takes it to Cod and asks
forgiveness. Perhaps in a short time
he does something similar, and is more
disappointed than before. He thought
that be had learned his lesson thor
oughly. Then lie goes to the Heavenly
Father again, hut finds that it is not
so easy to go the second t inie. Yet go he
must, cr else the spot remains. Ity and
by he does something wrong again.
Icrhaps in a little different ) in. and
must go again in . lod's appointed w ay.
These become 111 most serious times
of our lives as New Creatures. But
just as sure as he has had such expe
rience's, just so sure he has been faith
ful to the Lord.
Another class cf Christian people,
however, are different. The first time
they got a spot on their robe, they
went in the proper way and had the
spot removed. But the second time,
they said, "No; 1 cannot go to the
Lord. I will not pray tonight." In
the morning they brush away all
thought of the matter. During thoday
they are so busy with the cares of life
that they forget It. At night, they
think of it again, but retire without
praying. And so time goes on. lVr
liaps another ditik-ulty comes up, an
other bitter word is spoken, another
angry word uttered, something done
or thought that was wrong. Tiny are
getting spots all over their robe.
Should their attention be called to the
sjxits, they reply, "Everybody has
these. 1 have made up my mind not
to pay too much attention to these
things." Meantime their robes arc be
coming so spotted that it is practically
an impossibility to cleanse them. They
must be washed.
This class is pictured in the Scrip
tures as a great multitude, who must
wash their robes white? in the blood
the Lamb. (Kev. 7:1-17.) All those
will be washed eventually in the great
Time of Trouble Midi as was not since
there was u nation. The-y will not be
counted worthy to escape those' things
coming upeui tin; world the Time' of
Trouble just before us. The-y have not
be'e-n walking with eur Lorel in white,
not walking with Him at all. Bev. i:-l.
There is no way to keep ur gar
ments white except by e-ont inually be
ing in relationship with the Lorel. In
this way We shall gain the vjeteiry over
sin. But those; who elo mt remove the.
.spets as they come, cannot walk with
Him in white-, e-amiot go in to Urn we-el-eling,
not be ing a part of the Bride
class. (Matthew :Ti:ln They will
miss the promised glory, honor and im
mortality. But Goel in His Wisdom has sonie
thing even for tlie-m. for in one, se-us
they are, re-ally eive-ri-ome-rs. Even
when besmirched with sin, they were
iiet in sympathy with sin. In their
niitiels they were fighting against sin,
even though not getting riel of it. The
Lorel will put thein to the final test;
and if then the-y ele-ny the? Lord, they
shall die the Second Iiatli. I'.ut if in
that test thi'.v say from the; heart, "Oh.
now I see my mistake'! I see w here I
should have? eleuie differently. I will
now be faithful to the J ml; I will
stand ready to ilie tor Jesus insteaei of
denying Him," they will receive the
palms eif victory. But they will not
get the Crowns of Glory; for they did
not become "more than compierers,"
as did the Brih the Lambs Wife.
Unmans S:.,7; Bevelatiem liU.-P.
Those of this second company, "whose
number no man knoweth." the Scrip
tures declare will serve Genl i.'i His
Temple ami brfc His Throne, while
the first company, the Bride class, will
be fit the Throne ami living stones of
the Temple'. The. second company
might just as easily, and with much
more satisfaction, have attaineel the
glories of the Hivine nature had they
kept their robes unspeitteel from the
world. The fact that the-y will receive
palm branches indicates t hat they final
ly come efT victors; but their lack of
zeal hindcrcel them from being accept
ed as of the "nieire than conquerors."
Thus they fail te receive joint-heirship
with our Lorel in His Messianic King
dom. I'.ut In His infinite mercy the
Heavenly Father has another, though
inferior blessing for them; for appar
ently they will attain a place similar
in many respects to that occupied by
the angeds.
Here is the difToreiie-e between be-ing
in the Throne ami before the Thnme.
Each spirit begotten child of God de
cides the matter for himself. If we
walk with Him in white, we shall sit
down with Ilim in His Throne of glo
ry, honor and immortality. If we do
not so walk, we shall have our portion
with tlie other class. Dear Brethren,
permit nofhins to separate you from
the hve of' God in Christ. If we walk
with Him in white, all things shall be
ours things present and th'ngs to
come. No people in the worhl shoulel
be so happy as we are; no people are
so happj-. It is worth a fortune to re
alize that our God is a God of Love and
to realize what ITe has in store for us
"All things are yours; and ye are
Christ's, and Christ Is God's."

The Flag on Memorial Day.
The? following epn-stiou is asked fre
quently: What is the correct way to put out a
I'.vz on Memorial day. May "0?
Here is the answer, taken from the
Fniii-il States army regulations: "On
Mome'rial day at all army posts anil
;'.!ati-ns the national flag will be elis
played at half stall' fivm sunrise until
midday, r.nd before noon the band will
play a elirre e-.r pome appropriate air.
At the conclusion ef this memorial trib
ute, at noon, tin flag will be hoisted
to tlie fop of the staff mil will remain
the-re until sunset."
On Memorial day or other occasion
when the flag is displayed at half staff.
on raising the flag it shoulel go te the
peak and then be dropped one width of
the flag. In striking the flag it should
he always returned to the peak before
rtaoaueci ry tivii war Survivors as a
Very Hot Place.
One of the most desperate fights of
the civil war was that which took
place at the "Bloody Angle" on May
12. isc,i. it Is still remembered by the
survivors as probably the hottest place
they ever were iu. General I A.
Grant, commander of the Vermont
brigade, described the fight at the
"dead line" as follows:
"It was uot only a desperate struggle,
hut it was literally a hand to hand
fight. Nothing but the piled up logs or
breastworks separated the c jmbatants.
Our men would reach over the bigs and
lire into the faces oT the enemy, who
would stab over with their bayonets
Many wore slmt and stubbed through
the crevices and holes between the
logs. Men mounted the works uud
with muskets rapidly hauled theiu
kept up a continuous Are until they
were shot down, when others would
take their places and continue the
deailly work.
"Several times during the day the
Confederates would show a white flag
about the works and when our fire
slackened jump over anil surrender,
and others were crowded down to fill
their places. It was there that the
somewhat celebrated tree was cut off
by bullets there that the brush "and
logs were cut to pieces and whipped
into basket stuff."
General McGowan. who was on the
other side of the trenches leaeling the
South Carolina brigade, stated in his
"Our men lay on one side of the
breastwork, the enemy on the other,
and i:i many instances men were
rallied over. The trenches on the right
had to be cleareel of the deael more
than once. An oak tree twenty-two
inches in diameter in rear of the bri
gade was cut elowu hy musket balls,
and it fell about 12 o'clock Thursday
night, the 12th. injuring several men
in the First South Carolina regiment."
Battle Incident Which Led Later to
Restoration of a Sword.
General Keifer. later in congress
from the Springfield 0.) district, was
one of the last men wouudeil in the
civil war. He entereel the volunteer
army in April. lSHl. and served until
after Lee's surrender in lSir. In all
that time lie received three scratches,
but shortly after the surrender fie w-as
scemtiuK at the head of a small force
of cavalry aiid came suddenly upon a
large force of Confederate cavalry.
There was a skirmish, in which. Keifer
was wounded and in which he would
have been killed had it ne-t been for
the intervention if the Confederate
eemimaiieieT. who. under the circum
stances, simply wanted to be let alone.
Keifer returneel to carup. had his
wound elresseel, reported to headquar-te-rs
ami received special orders and
with re-enforcements started to find
the derelict Confederates. He found
them, and Colonel Tucker, the Confed
erate comma nelor. surren Jereel. Keifer
carried Tucker's sword home with him.
and it was kept in his library at Spring
field as a trophy of the war.
In lSTtf Keifer was elected to con
gress and in ISM was elected speaker.
Among his ae-epiaintanccs in 1S70 was
John Bandolph Tucker of Virginia. In
conversation one day Keifer tolel Tuck
r the story of the sword, and Tucker
said the officer who surrendered the
elay etf the skirmish was undoubtedly
his brother. This fact be-ing establish

ton and placed it in the hands of J.
Bandolph Tucker, who res to reel it to
its original owner. In after years Gen
