Look back at your childhood days.
Remember tho "doso" mother insisted
on caster oil, cnlomel, cathartlCB.
How you hated them, how you fought
against taking them.
With our children it's different.
Mothers who cling to the old form of

If your child's stomach, liver and
bowels need cleansing, give only dell

action is positive, but gentle. Millions
of mothers keep this harmless "fruit

MeEsrs. Cronin, Trumble and Walte

Mr. Koch wa3 In his seat when tho
prohibition bill came up, but i!e lined
to vote on it. Although his nanu was

absent nt tho time, aro from Cuming
county, which is known as one of the
strongest anti-prohibition counties l.i
tho state, having a largo foreign popu
lation. Mr. Mvyscnburg explained his oto
against the bill by saying it was not
tho kind of a measure tho people vot
ed for last fall. Mr. Richmond voted
for it, notwithstanding his belief that
it is not in accordance with tho wishes
of a majority of the people of Ne

amendment effective, ho suw nothing
else to do.
To Amend Compensation Bill
A bill amending tho workmen's com

by the Iioubo committee on labor and
placed on general Hlo. It Is H. II.
625, and has boon amended to Include
tho main provisions of two other bills,
H. II. 44 and II. R. 182. In gcnvral.
tho effect of tho amended bill Is as
1. Allows an injured employe, or
in case of death, his personal repre
sentative, six months tlnve after tho
injury in which to decide whether ho
will accept compensation under the
law or bring suit for damages.
2. Raises compensation for total

$50,000 for Prison Industries
Fifty thousand dollars will bo al
lowed for Nebraska penitentiary in
dustries, under certain conditions, if
tho Lancaster appropriation bill, as It
now stands, passes tho legislature and
tho governor's hand. Tho provisos at
tached to the bill make tho $50,000
available for any kind of prison In
dustry, except the manufacture of
brooms, but require that all prison
made goods shall be marked as such.
Since tho abolishment of tho contract
syBtem of prison labor two years ago,
tho broom industry at Lancaster baa
been gradually done away with, until
with tho removal entirely of the fac
tory of lessees from within the prison
walls this winter, the only work dom
thoro now is straw sorting.

I. The Slavery to Sin. Jesus' previ
ous references to water (('lis. -I and 7)
mid to bread (oh. (') were occasioned
by outward occurrences; so with this
reference to light. In the treasury (v.
i!0) near to Jesus as he spake were two
colossal, golden lamp stands around
which when lighted the people gnth
c red with rejoicing. Amid the blaze of
this Illumination, Jesus eelalms; "I
am the light of the world." What Is
more beuellcent than light ns it re
veals, cheers and brings life, health
ntiil happiness to mankind? Without
light there Is no vision. Without Jesus
there Is no spiritual wisdom. Without
light we know not whither we are go
ing. Without Jesus we grope In the
darkness. Kvery ray of light, of truth,
of holiness and love comes from him,
for God Is light, unci In him Is no dark
ness at all (I John l:1.r). Some think
that these words were occasioned by
the onlookers, seeing what Jesus had
written In the sand (vv. 1-11). The
first step In the slavery of sin Is blind
ness; the second Is habit; and the
third Is that of absolute slavery (Prow
r:22). Jesus was the Incarnation of
I lie light of God. We cannot con
ceive of Jesus making such an asser
tion an tills, ami being merely a good
II. The Possibility of Freedom (vv.
.TI-H0.) These words were spoken to
"those which had believed on him," mid
ns the result they were to know tho
truth, and the truth should make them
free. Knowledge and liberty come from
a continuance (abiding) in the word of
God (John M:lf; MM'J-l.'i). Many men
reject Jesus Christ because they claim
they wish to have their liberty, and by
bo doing they lose their liberty. A dis
ciple Is a learner; Jesus Is the teacher;
the entrance examinations to the
school of Christ are the simple nnd
necessary condition of believing or ac
cepting him as Lord and teacher. The
scholars nre all the disciples who con
tinue tinder his Instruction. The ob
ject of the schooling Is to make per
fect men, "unto the measure of the
stature of the fulness of Christ" (Kph.
4 :'22 ; Col. 4 :12). Christ's school Is not
only In the church and In the Sunday
school mid Young People's society, but
It Is everywhere, In the home, In tho
office, at work and play ; wherever ono
Is trying truly to live according to
Christ's will, he Is In bis school, nnd
that school Is open both day ami night;
there are no vacations unci no recesses.
The text book Is the Rook of books.
We need not argue as to the necessity
of sin, but realize the fact that all aro
under sin (Rmn, f:l'2), but being un
der sin does not necessitate our abid
ing there, nor Is sin necessary to our
being. This freedom hero Is from sin
and the love of sin and the curse and
the penalty of sin and the bondage and
corroding care of sin. It is also mental
freedom, freedom for Christian ac
tivity. A knowledge of the Kngllsh
Illblo Is a liberal education, and brings
true liberty to those who are thus edu-
rated. As contrasted to that we have
1 the slavery of sin (vv. HI, I!0). Tho
' drunkard Is a slave because be Is re
J strained from doing what he knows ho
I ought to do. Ho cannot even do wrong
I freely for his conscience constantly up
I braids him. lie is a slave because ho
Is compelled to bear tho consequences
of sin against his will. Tho way of
escape (v. .'!(!) Is through the son: "If
tho son therefore shall make you free,
ye shall bo free Indeed."
III. The Authority (vv. fiO, 58). Tho
Jews took exception to the words of
Jesus (.'H-fifi). When did Abraham seo
Jesus? Read the 38th and llUh chapters
of Genesis, and we find that one of tho
three who visited Abraham was differ
ent from the other two, and remained
behind while1 two went on to Sodom.
The ono who remained was tho Lord
Jesus, Jehovah appearing In human
form before bis later incarnation as
Jesus of Nazareth.
"I Am" Is tho nmno of Jehovah.
Jesus hero takes that name to himself.
There was a time when Abraham came
to bo or was (v. f8), but there was
no time when our Lord over cunio to
bo for he Is the eternal "I Am." Relng
thus one with God, he haB tho power
to bet men free.
Wo have In this chapter the plcturo
which Jesus draws of the chmacter of
tho devil ns the enemy of mankind un
der two aspects: First, ho Is a mur
