Many of the friends of his mother
mostly poor fdlk of the parish who
worked In the mill came with simple
gifts and happy greetings. There were
those among them who thought It a
blessing to look upon the sweet face
of Bob and to hear his merry laughter
over some playful bit of gossip and
Bulge Crooker said that they were
quite right about it. Mr. and Mrs. J.
I'atterson Blng were never to feel this
blessing. Tho Shepherd of the Birds
walled in vain for them timt Christ
mas day. Mrs. Blng sent a letter of
kindly greeting and a twenty-dollar
gold piece and explained that her hus
band was not feeling "quite up to thu
mark," which was true.
"I'm not going," he said decisively,
when Mrs. Blng brought the matter up
as he was smoking In the library an
hour or so after dinner. "No cripples
and misery In mine at present, thank
you I 1 wouldn't get over It for n
weelc. Just send them our best wishes
nnd n twenty-dollar gold piece."
There were tears In the Shepherd's
eyes when his mother helped hlrn Into
his night clothes that evening.
"I hate that, twenty-dollar gold

The Pounding of the Phylllctlnes.
One llrth' woiil largely accounted
for the success of ,1. I'atterson Blng.
It wns the word "no." It saved him
in moments which would have been
full f peril for other men. He had
never nude it bad Investment because
he knew how and when to .ty "no."
It fell from his lips so sharply and
decisively that he lo.st little time In
the consideration of doubtful enter
prises. Sometimes It fell heavily and
left a wound, for which Mr. Blng
thought himself in no way lesponsl
ble. There was really a lot of good
will in him. He didn't mean to hurt
"Time Is a thing of great value and
what's the use of wasting It In Idle
palaver?" he used to say.
One day, Hiram Blcukltisop, who
was Just recovering from a spree, met
Mr. Blng at the corner of Main and
School streets and asked him for tho
loan of u dollar.
"No sir!" said Mr. J. I'atterson
Blng. and the words sounded like two
whacks of a hammer on u nail. "No
sir." he repented, the second whacl:
being now the more emphatic. "I don't
lend money to people who make it had
use of It."
"Can you give me work?" asked the
"No I But If you were n hired girl,
I'd consider the matter."
Some people who overheard the
words laughed loudly. Poor Blenklu
sop made no reply, but he considered
the words an Insult to his manhood In
spite of the fact that he hadn't miv
manhood to speak of. At least, there
was not enough of it to stand up and
be Insulted that is sure. After that
he was always racking his brain for
something mean to say about J. Pat
terson Blng. Blng was a cold-blooded
tlslt. Blng was a scrlmper and a
grinder. If the truth were known
about Blng ho wouldn't be holding his
head so high. Judas Hcariot nnd J.
Pntterson Blng wero off tho same
bush. These were somo of tho things
that Blenklnsop scattered nbroad and
they were, to say tho least of them,
extremely unjust. Mr. Blng's inno

girl, arose naturally out of social con
ditions In the village.
Furthermore, It Is quite likely thnt
every one In BIngvllle, Including those
Impersonal creatures known us Law
and Order, would hnve been much
happier If some magician could hnve
turned Mr. Blenklnsop Into a hired
girl and have mnde him a life mem
ber of "the Dish Water Aristocracy,"
as Judge Croaker wns wont to call It.
The community of BIngvllle wns
noted for Us simplicity and good
sense. Servants were unknown In this
village of three thousand people. It
had lawyers and doctors and profess
ors nnd merchants some of whom
were deservedly well known and J.
Patterson Blng, the owner of the pulp
mill, celebrated for his riches; but
one could almost sny that its most
sought for and popular folk were Its
hired girls. They were few and sniffy.
They exercised care nnd discretion In
the choice of their employers. They
regulated the diet of the said employ
ers and the frequency nnd quality or
their entertainments. If It could be
said thnt there was an aristocracy In
the place they were It. First, among
the Who's Who In BIngvllle, were tho
Ollllgan sisters who worked In the big
lirlck' house of Judge Crooker; another
was Mrs. Pat Collins, seventy-two
years of age, who presided lu the kit
chen of tho Itevcrend Otis Singleton;
the two others were Susan Crowder,
n woman of sixty, nnd u red-headed
girl with one eye, of the name or
Featherstraw, both or whom served
"I Don't Lend Money to People Who
Make 3 Bad Use of It."
the opulent Blngs, Some or these
hired git Is ate with the family save
on special occasions when ilty folk
were present. Mrs. Collins nnd the
Ollllgans seemed to enjoy this privi
lege, but Susan Crowder, having had
an ancestor who had fought lu the
Revolutionary war, couldn't stand It,
and Martini Featherstraw preferred to
eat in the kitchen. Indeed there was
some warrant for tills remarkable1 sit
uation. The (lllllgan sisters had a
brother who was a magistrate In a
large city and Mrs. Collins had a son
who wtts a successful and popular
butcher In the growing city of Hazel
mead. That part of the village known as
Irlshtown and a settlement of Poles
nnd Italians furnished the man help lu
the mill, nnd Its sons were also seen
more or less In the fields and gardens.
Ambition and education had been
working In the minds of the young In
and about BIngvllle for two genera
tions. The sons and daughters of
farmers and ditch-diggers had read
Virgil and Horace and plodded Into the
mysteries of higher mathematics. Tho
best of them had gone Into learned
professions; others had enlisted In the
business of great cities; still others
had gone in for teaching or stenog
raphy. Their success had wrought a curi
ous devastation In the village and
countryside. The young moved out
heading for the pths of glory. Many
a sturdy, stupid person who might
Have made an excellent plumber, or
carpenter, or farmer, or cook, armed
Willi a university degree and a sense
of superiority, had gone forth In quest
of fame and fortune prepared for
nothing in particular and achieving
firm possession of It. Somehow tho
elective system had enabled them "to
get by" In a stato of mind that ro-
Komhled tho Mojave desert. If they
did not care for 1C.tIn or mathematics
they could take a courso In Illcrology
or in The Taming of tho Wild Chlck

young tint! fled from the Irksome tasks
which had roughened the hands nnd
bent the bucks of their parents. That,
briefly, nccounts for the fewness and
the sultriness (thrive referred to.
Enrly In 11)17, the village was
shaken by alarming and astonishing
news. True, the sinking of the Lusl
tnnln and our own enlistment In the
World war nnd the German successes
on the Busslan frontier had, In a way,
prepnred the heart and Intellect of
BIngvllle for shocking events. Still,
these disasters had been remote. Tho
fact that the (Sllllgnn sisters had left
the Croakers and accepted an offer of
one hundred and fifty dollars a month
from the wealthy Nlxons of Hnzel
mead was n event close to tho foot
lights, so to spenk. It caused the newa
of battles to take Its rightful place In
the distant background. Men talked
of this event In stores nnd on tho
street corners; It wns the subject of
conversation in sewing circles and the
Phtlomnthian Literary club. That
day, the Blngs whispered about It nt
the dinner table between courses until
Susnn Crowder sent In n summons by
Martha Featherstraw with the applo
pie. She would be glad tn see Mrs. .1.
Patterson Blng In the kitchen Imme
diately after dinner. There wns n mo
ment of silence tn the midst of which
Mr. Blng winked knowingly nt his
wife, who turned pnle as she put down
her pie fork with a look of determina
tion and rose and went Into the kitch
en. Mrs. Crowder regretted that she
and Martha would have to look for
another family unless their wages
wore raised from onr hundred to one
hundred nnd llftv dollars n month.
"But, Susan, we nil made an agree
nunt for a year," said Mrs. Blng.
Mrs. Crowder wns sorry, but she
and Martha could not make out on the
wages they were getting everything
cost so much. If Mary Ollllgan, who
couldn't cook, wns worth a hundred
dollars a month Mrs. Crowder consid
ered herself cheap at twice that Hgure.
Mrs. Blng, lu her anger, was In
clined to revolt, but Mr. Blng settled
tho matter by submitting to the tyr
anny of Susan. With Phyllis nnd
three of her young friends coming
from school and a party In prospect,
there was nothing else to do.
Maggie Collins, who was too old
and too firmly rooted lu tho village to
leave It, was satisiled with a raise
of ten dollars a month. Kvcn then she
received a third of the minister's snl
ary. "His wife being a swell leddy
who hud no time for wurruk, sure tho
boy was no sooner married than ho
yelled for help," as Maggie was wont
All this had a decided effect on the
economic life of tho village. Indeed,
Hiram Blenklnsop, the village drunk
ard, who attended to the lawns nnd
gardens for a number of people, de
manded an increase of a dollar a day
in his wages on account of the high
cost of living, although one would say
that Its effect upon him could not have
been serious. For yours the historic
Hgure of Blenklnsop had been the des
tination and repository of the cast-oft
clothing and the worn and shapeless
shoes of the leading citizens. For a
decade, the venerable derby tint, which
once belonged to Judge Crooker, had
survived all the Incidents of his nil
venturous career. He was, Indeed, as
replete with suggestive memories na
the gruveynrd to which he wns wont to
repair for rest and recuperation in
summer weather. There, in the shade
of a locust tree hard by tlio wall, ho
was often discovered with his faithful
dog Christmas a yellow, mongrel,
good-natured cur lying beside him,
nnd the historic derby hat In his hand.
He had a persevering pride in tlmt
lint. Mr. Blenklnsop shoNved u sur
prising nnd commendable Industry un
der the stjmulutlon of Increased pay.
He worked hard for u month, then
celebrated- his prosperity with a night
of such noisy, riotous Joy that ho
landed in the lockup with n black eye
nnd a broken nose and an empty pock
et. As usual, the dog Christinas went
with Idin. ,
When there wns a loud yell In tho
streets at night Judge Crooker used
to sny, "It's Hiram again. The poor
fellow Is out n-IIlruming."
William Snodgrass, the carpenter,
gave much thought nnd reflection to
the good fortune of the Gilligan girls,
ir a hired girl could earn twenty-five
dollars a week and her hoard, n skilled
mechanic, who had to board him
self, ought to earn at least flfty-. So
he put up his prices. Israel Sliced,
the plumber, raised his scale to corre
spond with thnt of the carpenter. Tho
prices of the butcher and grocer kept
pace with the rlso of wages. A period
or unexampled prosperity set In.
Some time before, tho Old Spirit of
BIngvllle had received notice that its
services would no longer be required.
It had been tin industrious nnd faith
ful Old Spirit. The new generation did
not intend to be hard on It. They
were willing to give it a comfortahlo

was to be called The Past. There it
was to hnve nothing to do but to sit
around nnd weep nnd talk of bygono
days. The Old Spirit rebelled. It re

I. In His Relation to God (vv. I. '').
He is dedicated tn Cod. He con
scientiously presents his entire being
I. The bnls of this dedicutlon (v.
1). "Tlie metcles of Cod." The grand
reason for the dedication of ourselves
to Cod Is because we are recipients of
the mercies of Cod.
'-', The nattiie or the dedication
(1) An act or the free will. Thoe
who voluntarily present themselves to
Cod, He consecrates lo Ills Service.
VI) It embraces the whole mnn (v. 1).
By "bodies" Is meant the entire per
sonality body, soul and spirit (I
Tliess. ri:'J.'I). The inner life expresses
Itself through the body. (.4) It N u
living sacrifice (v. 1). In the Old Tes
tament the victim was slain before be
ing placed upon the altar, but in our
cum1 Cod wants our bodies ns llvijig
instruments of .service. (4) it is for
rational service (v. 1). The logical
outcome of our union with Christ Is
an Intelligent service ror I Urn.
:i. The obligation of the .one dedi
cated to the Lord (v. 2). It Is non
conformity to tills world. The one
who bus handed himself over to the
Lord will not be fashioned by this
evil, devll-governed age (I John .rt:li)).
II. In His Relation to His Fellow
Christians (vv. 0-BI).
1. Love without hypocrisy (v. ).
We should not merely pretend to love
people while hating them in our
1!. Abhor the evil and cleave to the
good (v. 0). Cod's children must be
like him. Cod hates wickedness of
ull .orts, so His children will hnve the
same attitude townrds sin that He lias.
3. Be kindly nffectioned one to an
other (v. 10). This Is to he a broth
erly love, namely, that which passes
between those who are of one blood
members of the Mime family.
4. In honor preferring one another
(v. 10). This is most dlhlcult. It Is
natural to claim the best places for
ourselves. Chri.M pleased not Him-s-elf.
fi. Be not slothful In business (v.
11). This hardly refers to eculnr af
fairs, hut rather to the church life
which wns to be characterized bv ?enl
energy and warmth, being regarded
ns service to the Lord. '
0. Hejolciug in hope (v. 12). Af
fliction shall surely come tn the Chris
tina In all trials the chmtluu should
he tilled with hope ot future glory.
7. Patient in Tribulation (v. PJ).
This hle.ssed hope will make possible
a lite ot patience.
8. Continuing in prayer (v. 12). Only
by constant and peisiMi'iH prayer shall
we be able to live above out ciuum-
stnnces and ti our hope upon Him
whose coming shall bring deltveiuiue
from nil our trials and transform us
Into His glorious likeness.
!. Distributing to the neeesNity of
salnt.s given to hospitality (v. I"). It
I obligatory to ClnMlniis to divide
their wagi's with fellow Christians who
uie destitute (Kph. -i:2S).
III. In His Relation to Unbelievers
1 Do good for evil (v. 1 1). We arc
to bless those who persecute us. The
natural man pays hiu;k in the same
coin, but the lenewed man responds
In kindness anil good deeds.
2. Be sympathetic (v. LI). We
Miotihl rejoice with those who lejolce
and weep with lho.se who weep. Christ
entered into the Joys of the wedding
nt Cana, and wept with Mary and
.'i. Find points of agreement (v. 1(5).
We should seek for points of agree
ment in nil things, instead of being
vain in our own conceits.
1. Live honestly before nil men (v.
17). We should so live that our char
acters may attract others to Christ.
5. Live In pence (v. IS). We should
exhaust every means to bring about
reconciliation. If the other party wilt
not yield, we should see to It thnt It Is
not our fault.
0. Be not vindictive (vv. 19-21). In

tooth for tooth, we should heap coals
