FURTHER USES FOR RADIUM
Its Employment In Pottery Is Said to
Be Productive of Results of
Water containing radioactive com
pounds Is used as a curative agent, for
certain Illnesses. Mere contact with
such compounds for a sufficient length
of time will muke water slightly radio
active. Pottery Is now manufactured which
has In It n small percentage of radio
active material. This Is mixed with
the clay nnd baked in the kiln. Water
left In pottery of this nature for a
short time will become radioactive by
"Induction." and a health-giving drink
Such water may also be employed in
the watering of plants with good re
sults, since the presence of a radioac
tive compound neur the roots of a
plant Is very helpful to Its growth.-

YOUNO PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC
Tills lesion Is n part of the well
known Olivet discourse, giving n pro
phetic view of the course of time from
Its utterance, Just before the cruci
fixion to the second advent of Christ.
The order of events In that time are,
roughly speaking, as follows:
1. The moral condition of the world
during Christ's nbscneo (24:1-14). This
Is the period covered by the parable
of chapter 13.
2. The appearance of the Antichrist
n. The great advent (24:27-31), In
which there will be mighty convulsions
of nature, the mourning of the earth'M
tribes, and the gutherlng of the elect
4. Warnings to God's people In view
of the great advent (24:32-51), the
time of advent unknown nnd unex
pected. 5. Instructions to saints In view of
the unexpectedness of His coming (25:
0. The Judgment of the nations (25:
The present lesion Is one of the
two parables designed for the Instruc
tion of the saints In view of the com
ing of the ChrlNt It has n continu
ous application In tho present time (I
Thcss. 4:10-18; Titus 2:11-13).
J. The Foolish Vlralna Took Lamps
But No Oil With Them. (v. 3).
1. Lamps signify Christian profes
sion (Matt. 5:10), and oil, the Holy
Spirit (Zech. 4). Having the lamps
and no oil shows that they were pro
fessors of religion without possessing
its reality. As soon ns a man Is re
generated the Holy Spirit takes up His
abode with -Him. The proof that one
is n child of God is that he has the
Holy Spirit dwelling within him. "If
any man have not the Spirit nf Christ,
he is none of Ills." (Rom. 8:0). The
foolish virgins may have been of good
moral character, but tjicy were un
regenerated. 2. The wlso virgins possessed hoth
lamps and oil (v. 4). They made a
profession nnd bncked It with a real
life of righteousness. These nre tho
true believers. Both the wise and the
foolish virgins slumbered and slept.
Their eyes had grown heavy and they
fell under tho spell of sleep (v. 5).
This shows thnt as the Christian age
lengthened the real and professing
church would cease looking for the
coming of the Lord. It Is unspeakably
sad that so many even of God's saints,
wise virgins, should give up the ex
pectancy of tho return of tho Lrd.
II. The Coming Bridegroom (vv. 6
12). 1. Tho midnight cry (v. C). In tho
midst of the night when all were upleep
the cry was made, "Behold the bride
groom cometh, go ye out to meet him."
How sad it Is that the church hns
lost her hope, Is not waking and
wntchlng for the return of her Lord I
2. Activity of the virgins (v. 7).
They all arose and trimmed their
lamps. There will be great activity
when the Lord comes, on the part of
both the real Christians and those
who only mnkc a profession. The pro
fessing Christians will then realize
that they lack thnt which Is essential
to entrance to the mnrrlage feast
8 .The foolish request the wise to
share their oil (vv. 8, 0). Tho revela
tion of Christ will make manifest the
genuineness of our religion nnd ex
pose the folly of mere profession.
When tlie Lord comes It will be too
late to mend one's ways.
4. The wise enter to the marriage
(v. 10). While the foolish were seek
ing to amend their ways trying to buy
oil, the bridegroom came and thono
who were ready were admitted to the
5. The pitiful position of tho foolish
(v. 11). They begged tho Lord to
open the door that they might enter
to the marriage feast. No one can
open that door but the Lord.
G. The awftil Judgment (v. 12). Tho
Lord declares "I know you not." Those
who put off the personal contnet with
Jesus until that day shall he shut out
from the presence of Christ.
HI. The Solemn Obligation (v. 13).
"Watph, for yo know not the dny nor
the hour wherein the Son of man com
eth." No One Absolute.
God has mudo no one absolute. The
rich depend on tho poor, a well us
