LESSON FOR MAY 19.
THE OLD LAW AND THE NEW
TiKBSON TEXT-Mntt. B:17-M.
GOLDEN TnXT-"lTo tliat lovcth his
neighbor hath fulfilled tha law.' Horn.
If thcro In any ono thing wo aa
IVmorlcans delight In, It In In enacting
laws. Wo scorn to have nn insane
Idea that all tha Ills of human Ufa
ban bo cured by IcglRlatlon. Thcra
seems to bo a correspondingly great
er carelessness In the matter of law
enforcement. Johub did not found his
kingdom upon a multiplied number of
"Thou nhalt not's," of merely negatlvo
enactments. Ho took tho old Dlvlna
Jaw and "fulfilled" 1. c, filled It full
with llfo. Ho put purpose, llfo and vi
tality Into that law. Ho transformed
It from an outward formal observance
to an Inward heart motive At tho
outset of this lesson Jesus not only
nays that ho will obey the law of
Moses and the admonitions of the
prophets, but that thoso namo princi
ples shall apply In tho hearts of the
citizens of his now kingdom. That
moral order which Is In accordance
with tho Dlvlno standard Is still to be
observed. Christianity gives no li
cense to Its followers. Tho righteous
ness which Is of Christ does not lea
Ben our moral obligations. Jesus says
that not tho loast "Jot or tittle," tho
smallest part of a Hebrew letter, the
"dotting of an I or the crouslng of a
,T" shall bo set aside They must all
be realized In the liven of his follow
Responsible for Teachings.
In order to omphaslzo this still fur
ther, ho tolls thoso whom ho calls and
appoints to his servlco that they shall
bo hold responsible for what they
teach, as well as what they practico,
with. regards these commands. To
teach men to break ono of the very
least Is to becomo least In his new
kingdom. To oboy and to tench oth
ers to obey Is to becomo groat In this
new kingdom. Such Is tho Importanco
ho places upon the Old Testament
teachings and his statement ns to Its
authors. Lot us bewaro reading Into
his words any meaning that shall set
'aside this portion of Holy Writ, or
that shall suggest any question ns to
ttholr accepted authorship or author
ity. But Jesus was also aware of tho
'danger of outward obcdlenco or mcro
perfunctory fulfilment of that law to
gether with tho myriads of traditions
(that had grown up with It. Henco it
Is that ho so specifically warns his
followers that their righteousness, I.
o., right relations, must exceed ttmt
of tho Pharisees whoso loyalty to tho
law and to tradition is so famouB. His
followers must keep not only the form
but tho spirit also, and so ho goes on
to illustrate Beginning with an old
commandment, "Thou shalt not kill,"
ho shows us that tho outward final
act of murder is but an outgrowth of
tho spirit of a man's heart, henco ho
who hates his brother man is in dan
gor of, 1. e., already In the power of,
those forces that in their culmination
will bring him before tho tribunal.
"In danger of hell." JeBUs clearly
Indicates In all of his teaching a fu
ture stato of punishment as well as
one of bliss, and granting that these
words are only symbolical, of which
we are not convinced, we must pray
to be delivered from the reality; These
words are of the merest nonsense it
they be not true, and certainly we
cannot accuse Jesus of Jesting nor
suggest blm to be a fool (lacking in
knowledge) as he speaks upon so sort
ous a subject
Jesus' Philosophy Simple.
"Rememberest thy brother hath
ught against thee." The philosophy
of Jesus is perfectly simple. If an
ger Is criminal then he who Is guilty
roust of necessity become reconciled
to that one whom he has offended.
Not merely that we are to forgive
those who have wronged us, for that
la not such a hard matter. Dut wo
must get right with our brother who
has augfct against us before our gifts
Will be acceptable unto Ood. Some
one has said, "It Is far easier to give
up a coin than to give up a quarrel.
It is easier to lay down a generous
offering than to lay down a grudgo."
This requires haste, we must agree
with ur adversary quickly or elso he
,wlll turn upon us and presenting his
Tighteous cause before tho tribunal
bring upon us a Judgment for our an
ger, our consorlousnoss, or our con
demnation. Once thus brought beforo
the Judge, bo It an earthly tribunal,
public opinion, or a loving God, our
opportunity is past and wo shall be,
obliged to pay to the uttermost, even
no small a part as a farthing about
'two-fifths of a cent.
True reformation Is not wholly de
structive. So our Lord began his new
kingdom by grafting It as It were
upon tho strong root of the past law
which was good, but this new appllca
lion bore a vastly different fruit than
;any thus far grown. Doth bad tholr
rootu tho love of God for fallen hu
manity, and tho finest flower of both
lis to be tho application of tho law of
love as shown in man's relation to
; Such, then, is Jesus' attitude to
jwards the Old Testament law and bis
application of that law. '

Styles Change Gradually.
On the whole the radical chango ex

even paniora will make their appear

TIDY HABITS TO BE PRIZED
Fortunate Indeed Is the Woman or
Girl Who Has Systematically
Tidiness Is ono of tho most attrac
tive of fcmlnlno qualities. It Is also
ono of tho rarest. Early and per
sistent must be tho training which
carries tho girl into womanhood with
her "bump of neatness" well de
veloped. Unless Inherently fastidious during
school days, she is liable to drift Into
careless habits which sho never out
grows. Ono girt may have a trick of leaving
shoes about hor room. As a child she
was permitted to do this, and as she
grew older the untidy custom was
never abandoned, for the simple rea
son that she herself did not notice
anything unusual about it, and prob
ably nobody elso took tho trouble to
correct her. Another slovenly habit

NATION SAVED BY A SPIDER
Qcotland Profited by the Lesson the
Insect Taught to Its '
Scotland has ninny legends that the
Bhecpherdcra and highland peasants
never get tired repeating. A long tlmo
ago King llruco ruled over Scotlund
beforo th.it country became n part of
Knglnnd, and ho learned a lesson from
a spider that enabled him to succeed
when otherwise ho would havo failed.
King llruco had lost many battles.
Ho was discouraged. Ho had made
bis final effort agnlnst his enemies
nnd failed to vanquish them. Deep In
despair ho went to a lonely room In
his castle Reclining on the couch
and thinking, ho happened to notice
a spider drop from the colling on n
slnglo silken cord. He watched the
spider fastlnatcdly. It now began Its
ascent. It slipped. Tlmo and time
ngaln It tried to mount, but each tlmo
It failed. Tho king watched Intently,
forgetful of all elso. An hour passed.
Finally tho spider succeeded. It was
an Inspiration for King nruco. Why
should ho get discouraged, having
tried only a few times und failed? He
made one last grand rally against his
enemies and routed them, and from
this Incident came tho old caylng, "If
at first you don't succeed try again."
Something Just as Good.

If You Like
a Little Quiet Fun
Ask some pompous person if Grape-Nuts Food helps
build the Drain,
Chances are you get a withering sneer and a hiss
Then sweetly play with the learned toad.
Ask him to tell you the analysis of brain material and
the analysis of Grape-Nuts.
"Don't know? Why, I supposed you based your opinions
on exact knowledge instead of pushing out a conclusion like you
would a sneeze." p.
"Well, now your tire is punctured, let's sit down
like good friends and repair it."
The bulky materials of brain are water and albumin,
but these things cannot blend without a little worker known
as Phosphate of Potash, defined as a "mineral salt."
One authority, Geohcgan, shows in his analysis of brain,
5.33 per cent total of mineral salts, over one-half being Phosphoric
Acid and Potash combined, (Phosphate of Potash) 2.91 per cent
Beaunis, another authority, shows Phosphoric Acid and
Potash (Phosphate of Potash) more than one-half the total
mineral salts, being 73.44 per cent in a total of 101.07.
Analysis of Grape-Nuts shows Potassium and Phos
phorus (which join and make Phosphate of Potash) is
considerable more than one-half of all the mineral
salts in the food. f
Dr. Geo.W. Carey, an authority on the constituent elements
of the body, says: "The gray matter of the brain is controlled
entirely by the inorganic cell-salt. Potassium Phosphate (Phosphate
of Potash). This salt unites with albumin and by the addition of
oxygen creates nerve fluid or the gray matter of the brain. Of
course, there is a trace of other salts and other organic matter in
nerve fluid, but Potassium Phosphate is the chief factor, and has
the power within itself to attract, by its own law of affinity,
all things needed to manufacture the elixir of life.
Further on he says: "The beginning and end of the
matter is tb supply the lacking principle, and in molecular
form exactly as nature furnishes it in vegetables, fruits and
grain. To supply deficiencies this is the only law of cure."
Brain is made of Phosphate of Potash as tha
principal Mineral Salt, added to albumin and water.
Grape-Nuts contains that element as more than
one-half of all its mineral salts.
Every day's use of brain wears away a little.
Suppose your kind of food does not contain Phosphate of Potash.
How are you going to rebuild today the worn-out parts of yesterday?
And if you don't, why shouldn't nervous prostration and brain-fag result?
Remember, Mind does not work well on a brain that is even partly broken down
from lack of nourishment ,
It is true that other food besides Grape-Nuts contains varying quantities of Brain food.
Plain wheat and barley do. But in Grape-Nuts there is a certainty.
And if the elements demanded by Nature, are eaten, the life forces have
the needed material to build from.
A healthy brain is important, if one would "do things" in this world.
A man who sneers at "Mind" sneers at the best and least understood part of himself.
That part which some folks believe links us to the Infinite.
Mind asks for a healthy brain upon which to act, and Nature has defined a way to make
a healthy brain and renew it day by day as. it is used up from work of the previous day.
Nature's way to rebuild is by the use 'of food which supplies the things required.
