A CesaDrehosulve Bevlew ef the f the Foarth Quarter Goldesi Teat, Bev. sail, SI Coeaaaesitary hy Abe Bev. D. at. Htearae. Lesson L The Power of the Gospel (Rom. 1, 8-17). Golden Text (Rom. I, 16), "I am not ashamed of the BoejHsl of Chrint, for it Is the power of God unto aalvatiou to every no that believeth." The prominent topic te this lesson Is the gospel of Christ as in the golden text, or as in verse 1, 8, the foepel of God concerning His Son Jeaus Christ, our Lord. This gospel is quite fully stated in I Cor. xv, 1-t, 23, 61, 63. Lisbon IL Redemption In Christ (Rom. U, 19-36). Golden Text (Rom. Ill, 24), "Be ing .untitled freely by His grace through redemption that ia In Christ Jeaus." Iu chapters 1 and U Jew and Gentile are all proved guilty (see chapter iil, 0). Now we are taught that the law, which ia holy and just and good, cannot save, but can only condemn and shut us up to the ouly righteouHueM revealed in the word of God, that wbloh has been provided by the fin ished work of the Lord Jesus and is be stowed freely upon every true believer. Lesson III. Justification by Faith (Rom. V, 1-11). Golden Text (Rom. v, 8), "While we were yet sinners Christ died for us." The condition of every unsaved person la here described, as without strength, un godly, sinners, enemies (verves 6, 8, 10), but because Jesus our Lord was delivered for our offenses and raised again for our Justi fication all who receive Mm are, apart from any works of ours, justified aud have peace with God (chapter iv, 23-85, 6; Acts Kill. 88, 89; Titus iii, 5). more than forgtvejatav for gives us a righteous sawrtriiittf In QirUt, n if we had Bver sinned (II Cor. , -1 ; I Cor. i, AO). Lesson IV. Christian Living (Horn, xil, 1-15). Golden Text (Horn, xll, 21), "lie not Overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." It Is this Christian living that both ers most people. We receive CUrint and are saved, and Ills merits make us sure of heaven if we die, or of meeting Him in the air if He comes, but why cannot we mani fest more of the life of Christ in these mor tal bodies as we ouxbt to do (II Cor. Iv, 10, ll)f Doubtless because we are disobedient to the entreaty of versea 1 and 2 of this chapter. Lesbon V. Abstinence For the Sake of Others (1 Cor. vtii, 1-13). Golden Text (Rom. gv, 1), "We then that are strong ouKht to bear the infirmities of the weak and not to please ourselves." Because of the weak Bess of many believers things which might be perfectly lawful are not always expedi dient Even Christ pleased not Himself, and He died for us. We who live should Bot henceforth live untoourselvea, but unto Him who died for us and rose again (Rom. gv, Ss II Cor. v, 16). We can do it "for Jesus' sake." Lesson VL The Resurrection (I Cor. xv, 12--e). Golden Text(I Cor. xv. 67), "Thank be to God, who gi veth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." In the reaurrec tlon of the body at the coming of our Lord Jesus we shall be manifested as the chil dren of God (I John iii, 2), and victory over all things shall be ours. Lesson VII. The Grace of Liberality (II Cor. Till, 1-13). Golden Text (II Cor. viil. 9), "He became poor that ye through His poverty might be rich." God so loved that He gave the dearest that Hs had, and un less our love to Him takes the form of giv lngthat which costs as something It is very little like His love. He tells as by Bis Spirit that because He laid down II if life for as we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren (I Joha iil, 10). Some would think it a trial to lay down 5 for Him. Lesson Vni. Imitation of Christ (Eph. It, 20-83). Golden Text (Eph. iv, 83), "And be ye kind one to another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." It is the desire of our Lord to live out His life in these our mortal bodies (II Cor. iv, 11), and to that end He gives us His Holy Spirit, sealing us as His own property and giving an earnest of the inheritance while we wait for the day of redemption of the body, and of Israel, and of the earth. He will fill n with His Spirit (chapter v, 18) if we are will ing. Lesson FX The Christian Home (Col. Hi, 13-25). Golden Text (Ps. ci, 2), "I will walk within my house with a perfec' heart." If we cannot live Christ at home and there manifest the meekness and gen tleness of Christ, we must eat more of His word aud thus obtain more of His Spirit, so shall we do all things unto Him and in His name, and thus shall right relations prevail between wives and husbands, parents and children and servants to God's glory. Lesson X. Grateful Obedience (Jaa. 1, 1.-27). Golden Text (I John iv, 19), "We love IHra because He first loved us." The love of Christ to us when realized will eon train us to a loving obedience and make as doers of the word, manifesting what is here called pure religion. He that keepeth Christ's coinmnnds is the one that lovetb Him. See John xlv, 15, 23; xv, 10. And to such ne will ttianiivat Himself. , Lesson XL The Heavenly Inheritance, . a Pet 1, 1-13.) Golden Text (Col. I, 13), Giving thanks unto the Father, which bath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saluU tu light." This Is 1 Sae cf the richest I. i,e f.,11 ut the living hope, aud the Incorruptible Inheritance, and the salvation to be revealed, for which all true believers are kept by the power of God. Present trials are a precious oi-ce-slt y 1 Which tend to fullueM of joy both here and hereafter. With loins girded let us bei found watching. ' Lesson XiL-Thsainrinnl Savtour(Rev. UtO). Gulden Text (Phil il, 9), "When., fur. Cod also hath hltth'y exalte! Hint and given Hint a name which is aUire every aania."

"I have an echo In my park that eaa beat yours Into fits." "Impossible!'' said everybody in chorua. "You can easily put It to the teat. If 700 like." s "Very good, we will step across torn or-. row to hear for ourselves," "Yes, come without fall," and so say bog the marquis took hie departure, med itating Brittle scheme of bis own. On reaching his mansion he sent for bis old lackey, Sancho by name. "You are up to all sorts of tricks, old chap. Do yon think you could manage to play the part of an echo" "Certainly, my lord; you have only to about Hoi Hoi and I repeat the same." "Very well; tomorrow afternoon you hall go and stand In that dump of trees behind the lake and repeat 80 times any call that you may hear, gradually lower ing your voice, but mind mum's the wordl" Next day his lordship's friends came trooping Into the park. Sancho was at his post pricking up bis ears. "Now ladies and gentlemen, yonr doubts will soon be dissipated," said the marquis. "Will you be the first to try the experiment, ma damef "No, thanks, mnrnuis; your voice is louder and more effective for the purpose than mine." ' Whereupon the marquis Inflated bis longs and called out at the top of bis voice 1 "Are yoa theref , To which the echo made answeri "Yes, my lord, I've been here a couple of hours!" (Curtain). Paris Famllle. . " Testlbnied Trains. People bear a f nt deal about vestibule oars nowadays, aod when a railroad de sires to place an especially seductive ad vertisement before the publio it announces in attractive typography that It runs a "solid vestibnled train" to such a place. Host people probably imagine that the vestibule car is a particularly modern In-' vention when, as a matter of fact, It Isn't, ' and the wonder la that the railroads were so slow In adopting them, now that they are so particular to announce that they have them, and In fact no well regulated and prosperous railroad dares acknowledge that it isn't equipped with the all popu-' lar vestibule. The first patent was secured ' in 1852 by a man named Waterbury, end ' the first vestlbuled car was used on the Naugatuck itllroad in 1868, aud about 90 patents have been taken out since that time In this country and 20 tn foreign countries. j It was formerly attached only to parlor and sleeping cars, but the service Is now J common on ordinary trains, and it is the ' most complete appliance of modern times I for protection and comfort. It Is a pre- ventive against telescoping; It assists in ventilation; it Is a means of steadying the vibratory motion of trains; it is a proteo- tlon In passing to and fro between cars, It Is a missing link supplied, it minimizes the atmospheric resistance to tne running of trains, and in the provision of increased buffer resistance gives protection to the en-' gine men against cars piling op over the tender ana engine in collisions, as some roads are placing vestibule attachments to the tenders. All signs point to a universal 1 in the near future. CucinnaUTlmes- Star. The Candid Friend. Do yoa writer Ob, bow yonr candid friend shskes his head ever your last novel piay, or wnatever it isi xou srs not 0.0-1 ing nearly such good work as yoa did two years ago, and be mutters about decaying Dowers and writins vourself out. till, like Henry U, you groan, "Who will rid me of this man?" Perhaps yoa fancy yoa can paint, in which case banging committees, buyers, critics and dealers are not the most savage lions In your path If yoa happen to be blessed with a candid friend. The worst of It is, the man is a .friend, and will do yoa a good turn If he can of co rse with out much trouble to himself also to a certain extent be knows what he Is talking about, so that you are bound to have some respect for bis opinion. He begins by gently prancing round your work, rather in the manner of the commence ment of a Sioux war dance. Yoa grow anxious, and losing your head in a moment of temporary aberra tion you ask bis opinion. Whoop I You've got it. Your shadows are opaque and your lights pasty; your drawing is weak and your technique bad; your color Is crude and the whole thing out of tone, and at the end the snm and substance of It all ia that if he the candid friend painted as badly as yoa do be would never touch a brush again as long as he lived. "Hope I haven't hurt you, old fellow, but yoa would ask my candid opinion, so I was bound to give It you," be aayi All the Tear Round. The Ambitions Tlay Writer.

The old legends ot the sun and moon, of earth and sky, of heaven and the tars, tell us of the selfsame objects whose place and size, whose weight and nature, astronomers are chronicling today. The difference is great Indeed between the gnesses of early times and the methods of modern science. Nowhere else perhaps la the contrast seen so well between the In fancy and the maturity ot the mind of man, and no part of astronomy shows it so clearly as that which tells of the earth's place In the universe. To the Greeks eight centuries before Christ, the earth waa flat, surrounded by the sea, and covered by the canopy of sky, which is the floor of heav en, the abode of the Olympian gods. Greece was at the center of the earth and Delphi at the central point of Greece. As to other worlds scattered through the sky depths, science has been learning much; something of their nature, thetr number, their distance, is constantly being learned, while the way is being prepared for gain ing some real insight Into the relutlous of the stars among themselves, and for fixing our own position iu regard to other suns and systems than our own. We have to Invent a new measure for talking of their dl-ranc, since, finding miles too small, we talk of "light years," which means the distance that a ray of jjgbt, traveling some 186,000 miles a second, would traverse In a year. Before we get too used to talking of light years it nsav be well to try to tret a notion what light year really is. It means a Journey that would take an express train more than 11,000,000 years. It means a velocity that the periphery of a glgantio flywheel tOO miles in diameter could not keep op with, though it made 600 revolutions In a second. It means a distance traversed ia one second that sound will not pass over in 10 days. Aud this is tbs unit for the quantities that modern astronomy deals with when treating or tne aiatnoution 01 stars In space. Sometimes one bear a enblo light year spoken of that Is, en imaginary cube with each side a light year long. It was long after men saw bow to measure the distance of the stars Mfore they succeeded so ae to feel much confidence in the results obtained, but bow the distances of a few stars are knows with comparative accuracy and certainty, many measures having been made that will probably come within 80 or 80 par cent of tbs truth. The nearest star that has been found It Alpha CenUuri, with a distance of 4H light yean. Probably next in order is m amall star, numbered 81,185 in Lalande'a aataloirue. It la about V light yean ofL j while 61 Cygnl, the most frequently rneaa- nred of any star, to a boat 7 to TH Ught years off.

Bare is Isolation Indeed. The ran, with all tta vastness, does not fill one two hundred thousand trillionth (3 with 88 eiphsrs) part of the sphere that baa oar neansi stellar neighbor on tta surface. The gl gantio volums of the ran tn such a paw n like an isolated shot containing but one- half of a cuble inch immersed in the whole water of the sea, while a littlo speck las than the two-millionth of a cublo inch 1 pended In the 878 trillion gallons of the ea would represent the earth suspended ia the sphere, the radius of which reaches only to the nearest star. Did we set the pole star at the limits of oar space sphere, the volume of the sphere would be 8,000 times aa great, and the on must be thought of as occupying the six thousandth part of an inch in the 400, 000,000 cubic miles of sea. Were Vega, at a distance of 60 light years, on the bound ary of our sphere, the pace that reaches to our nearest neighbor must be Increased 10,000 times in volume, and the earth be comea a difficult microscopic object in the vast abyss of sea. These are all stars whose distance has been measured with more or lees accuracy, but there are other ' objects more remote that have defied all at tempts to measure them In literal fact, they are Immeasurably remote distanoes. The figures given here to show the position ot the earth in space are wholly paltry and Inadequate compared with the aa yet un known reality, Much has been learm d, and the way prepared for yet greater ad vances.
