Lincoln 1b, after Washington, tho
greatest figure In our national his
tory. No other man performed serv
ices so great as his. or was so high
a charactor. IIIb conduct during tho
trying dayB of tho civil war, when tho
union that had been founded with
high hopes for human liberty Boomed
destined to bo destroyed, was such
ns to appear Inspired by a power
grcntor than human, nnd many an
American has thanked God In Ills
nightly prnyerB that bo wise, gontlo,
forbearing a lender had boon raised
up by divlno dliectlon to guide tho
country to safety. HIb death was n
great calamity, not less to tho south
than to tho north; for, It Lincoln had
been spared, his qualities of henrt and
mind would have nmdo tho task of
reconstruction much easier than It
proved und would have healed the
wounds of war much sooner.
Tho Bonth will join with tho north

Two Good Tales of Lincoln.
On ono occasion President Lincoln,
on ontorlng tho telegraph offlco of tho
war department, writes Mr. Bates in
"Lincoln hi tho Telegraph Oiflco," was
hoard to romark to Socrotary Seward:
"By Jings, governor, wo nro hero at
last!" Turning to him In a reproving
manner, Mr. Sownrd said: "Mr. Preal
dent, whero did you loam that lncle
gant expression?" Without replying to
tho secretary Lincoln addressed tho
telegraph operators, saying:
"Young gentlemen, oxcuso mo for
swearing before yon. 'By Jlngs' Is
swearing, for my good old mothor
taught mo thnt nnythlng that had a
'by boforo It was swearing."
Ono tiny Secretary Soward, who was
not renowned ns a Joker, said that ho
had been told that a short tlmo boforo,
on a streot crossing. Lincoln hud
been Boon to turn out in tho mud
to allow a colored woman to pasa.
"Yes," Bald Lincoln, "It has been tho
rulo of my llfo thnt if peoplo would not
turn out for mo I would turn out for
I them. Then you avoid collisions."

Comment and Suggestive Thought.
V.3G. "Joses." One form of "Joseph."
"Sumnmed Barnabas." A Hebrew
name, derived from bar, son, and
Knbunh "prophesying," pouring out
words as from a fountain, the impell
ing forco being the divlno Inspiration."
"Tho nnmo seems to have been con
ferred upon him by tho general con
sent of his friends, as a kind of de
gree or pet name." Biblical World.
Being interpreted from Hebrew into
Greek, The son of consolation, "com
forting," "exhortation," as in the R. V.
Neither definition nlonc Is complete;
It takes both to give tho meaning of
tho orlginnl Greok word, which is tho
samo word as that given to tho Holy
.Spirit by Jeaus (John 14:10), "tho
Comforter," "Pnrnclete" from para, to
the side of, and kaleo, to call or sum
mon, for comfort or help us an advo
cate, counselor, comforter.
What Barnabas, filled with the Holy
Spirit, did for others was similar, nt
lenst In most respects, to thnt which
tho Holy Spirit does for us. His work
was far greater than that implied by
tho familiar definition of comforting
to soothe, to bring tranquil enjoyment.
Ho was llko tho advocate In Greek and
Lntlu courts, a powerful friend In
whoso wisdom, knowledge, Influence
and affection tho client hnd confi
dence, and who advised, aided,
strengthened nnd comforted him. Bnr
nabas had a great gift by his words,
character and personality of comfort
ing others by invigorating them, in
spiring them with n new life, strength
ening their faith and hope, giving them
fresh courage. He was like a fountain
of tho water of life.
"Comforting," from two Latin words,
moans making strong together. Noth
ing is worthy of tho name of comfort

Tho Holy Spirit comforted the disci
ples after the death of Jesus, just as
Jesus promised. How? By making
tho frightened men bold as lions; by
changing them Into heroes; by giving
Joy unspeakablo when persecuted, im
prisoned, tortured, scattered.
There aro two sources of danger to
tho church of Christ.
Dangors from without.
Dangers from within.
The fires of persecution wore kin
dled to consumo it. But tho church
was like tho three horoes In Nebuchad
nezzar's furnnca; tho flames did not
harm them, und one like the Son of
God wna with them in tho Humes. And
tho light from them caused men to seo
In, clearer light the true God and tho
It ndvertlscd tho good nows; It
scattered tho seeds of truth brondcast;
It led to more prayer, a stronger faith,
a firmer coruage, moro gonoroua giv
ing, more fervent preaching; it proved
that tho piety of tho church was no
temporary excitement, but a steady
burning nnd shining light.
Wo now come to a moro dangerous
attack, from evil within her ranks.
Flro cannot consumo, nor waterB
drown tho church. There la no way
to destroy It but by enemies within.
The engine is powerless if tho flroa
fail. The light goes out when the
electric current ceases to flow. Wo
arc to study this attack, learn Its les
sons for to-day, and see how God over
ruled even thla, by victory over evil,
for tho advancement of tho gospel.
V. G. "Ananias . . . fell down, and
?avo up tho ghost." Literally,
"brenthod out his life, his soul." In
whatever way It came, by tho Bhock
jf tho discovery of his sin, or by a di
rect atroko from God, It was God's act,
and In no sense tho net of Peter and
'tho apostles. Vory probably they wero-
as much astonished as nnyono. Had
