1'uul In u Coimnercliil Center.
The establishment of the church nt
Corinth Is an example of missionary
endeaor for all ages. The method
employed, which resulted In success
then, will result In success now.
I. The True Missionary Method
I'aul came to Corinth a stranger In
n strange city. He did not base an
advi'iue agent to do his advertising;
neither did he have his photograph
put In the dally paper with sensa
tional announcements, upon his arrival
In Corinth, lie did not have a trained
singer with him ; neither did ho have
bis salary guaranteed. Ills method In
gaining a foothold In Corinth was as
I. Finding u home (v. 'J). This ho
found with Aqulla and I'rlscllla, Jews
who were leceiitly expelled from
Home by the cruet edict of Claudius.
Ilelng .lews, he found natural aflllnlty
li. He tolled for his dally bread
(v. I'.). He was of ibe same craft
with them, being tentmakers. Every
child among the .lews was taught
some trade by means of which he
could gain a livelihood should occa
sion tequlre. One of the rabbis said
that ho who fulled to teach his boy
a trade taught him to steal.
II. Preaching In the Synagogue at
Corinth (vv. AS).
1. Though compelled to toll for n
living while getting a foothold In
Corinth, he did not lose sight of his
main work (v. 4). lie reasoned In
the synagogue every Sabbath, persuad
ing the .lews and Gieeks.
'-. Ills activity was Increased when
Silas and Timothy cuuie (v. ,r). This
resulted from three causes: (1) They
brought good news from the church at
'J hesMilonlca (I Thess. :i:G). To hear
of the steadfastness of those who hnd
confessed Christ under our ministry
puts new vigor Into our labors. (2)
They brought pecuniary gifts from the
Macedonian churches (Philip. 4:1.r;
II Cor. 11:!)). Ilelng relieved from the
necessity of toil for n living, they now
could devote more time anil energy
to the preaching of the gospel. (.')
Silas and Timothy became assistant"
to Paul In the work, thereby strength
ening his bands so as to enable him
to accentuate his efforts.
:t. Paul opposed (v. (1). Ills In
creased activity was met with In
creased opposition. This can always
be o peeled.
1. I'aul announces his purpose fo
turn to the Gentiles (v. 0). Itecnuse
of their blashphcmy and opposition he
ceased to work among the .Tews.
There Is a time when good Judgment
causes one to abandon work where
efforts have been fruitless, but It Is
dllllcult to know Just when to do It.
.r. He did not go far away (v. 7).
He remained sufllclently near that
those whose hearts God touched could
easily find htm. It Is likewise true
(hat although Christ Is obliged to de
part from the soul thnt refuses Him
entrance. He lingers with yearning
love around that heart.
fl. Ills success (v.( 8). Crispus, the
chief ruler of the synagogue, was con
verted. Perhaps the severity of his
action in turning away from them
moved Crispus to action.
III. Paul's Vision (vv. 0-11).
Ills experiences slnct coming to Eu
rope wero very trying. He needed en
couragement at this time. It Is Just
like the Lord to come at the time of
the servant's greatest need. Note the
Lord's (.iiN to him:
1. "lie not afraid." When one Is
executing the commission of the Lord
he need not be afraid.
'J. "Spon k, and hold not thy pence."
The one who has heard the voice of
God cannot refrain from speaking -cannot
H. 'H am with theq." Tho Lord Is
with everyone who faithfully carries
out his commission.
4. "No man shall set on thee to hurl
thee." The one sent by the Lord to do
a work Is Immune from danger and
barm until his work Is done,
fi. "I have much people In this city"
It Is most encouraging to know that
In the great cities the Lord has Ills
own people and that the -one who goes
In IDs name shall have fruit for his
Bible Classes Necessary,
lllble classes are ns necessary to a
healthy parochial life as are any other
religious agencies, and tho priest who
neglects them because they seem to
him old-fashioned or connected with
the Protestant sectarian system lays
himself open to great blame. "Thy
word Is a lamp unto my feet and a
light unto my paths." Dean Larned.

Some More Truths.
X70ULD you use a steam shovel to move a pebble? Certainly not. Implements
are built according to the work they havo to do.
Would you use a grown-up's remedy for your baby's ills? Certainly not.
Kennedies are prepared according to the work THEY havo to do.
All this is preliminary to reminding you that Fletcher's Castoria was sought
out, found and is prepared solely as a remedy for Infants and Children. And let
this be a warning against Substitutes, Counterfeits and the Just-as-good stuff that
may be all right for you in all your strength, but dangerous for the little babe.
All the mother-lovo that lies within your heart cries out to you: Be true to
Baby. And being true to Baby you will keep in the house remedies specially,
prepared for babies as you would a baby's food, hairbrush, toothbrush or sponge.

The fact that (I'J.'.OOO bottles of Tan

than one jenr ago, Is a big business
Item that will attract unusual atten

Mr. George H. Evans, manager of
the Gibson-Snow Company, the well
known wholesale druggists, with
branches In Albany, Huffalo, Roches
ter and Syracuse, recently announced
that the preparation was now selling
In their trade territories alone at the
phenomenal rate of approximately GOO,
000 bottles a year.
"If the present rate continues," said
Mr. Evans, "this state alone will prob
ably require considerably over Tt'O.OOO
bottles a year. This Is a tremendous
figure, but 1 am really conservative In
making this statement."

Little Sister's Interest.
Little Jennie gazed long nnd
thoughtfully at the young man who
was calling on her grown-up sister
".May I climb up on your knee, Mr.
Greene?" she Inquired at last.
"Yes, of course, dear!" smiled the
young man, who wanted to make a
hit with the family. "Want to pull
my hair eh?"
"No; I want to see If I can find
that word," replied the little girl.

Arc You Prepared?
A doctor in the house all the time would be a good idea. Yet you
can't afford to keep a doctor in the family to keep baby weU or pre
vent sickness. But you can do almost the same thing by having at
hand a bottle of Fletcher's Castoria, because it is a wonderful remedy,
for indigestion, colic, feverishness, fretfulness and all the other dis'
orders that result from common ailments that babies have.
Fletcher's Castoria is perfectly safe to use. It is a harmless sub
stitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric, Drops and Soothing Syrups. Children
cry for Fletcher's Castoria, and mothers recommend it because they
have found it a comfort to children and a mother's friend.
If you love your baby, you know how sweet it is to be able to
help baby when trouble comes. You cannot always call upon a doctor.
But doctors have nothing but good to say of Fletcher's Castoria, be
cause they know that it can only do good that it can't do any harm
and they wouldn't want you to use for baby a remedy that you would
use for yourself.
