A Boston bulldog owned by George

Into its den that he followed after and

When the dog bad got hi Jaw
about the enemy he found that he
could not get out owing to the small

Rather than lose bis prey the dog
retained his hold on the woodchuck
over night, and was helped out by his
master In the morning. The dog was
nearly exhausted, and revived after

hidden behind a paste of varying

A MESSAGE TO
There are but

.said he is a good
man, others said,
nay; but he de
ceiveth the peo
ple." (John 7:12.)
Jesus Christ was
either a madman,
a bad man, or a
God. None but a
God, or a mad
man, or a de
ceiver could have
made the claims that he did. The
strongest minds on earth stand with
uncovered heads in the presence of his
teaching. The Sermon on the Mount,
even infidelity is willing to admit, was
the utterance of a clear head and a
pure heart. The whole trend of his
life indicates the soundest mind, filled
with the healthy enthusiasm which a
great mission inspires. The charge
that he was a madman no one is fool
ish enough to defend. Then we are
driven to one of two other positions.
He was either God. or the worst of
men. A good man cannot claim to be
what he knows he is not. A good man
cannot be a hypocrite. Now, does any
one in this day contend that Jesus was
a deceiver? I have yet to hear such
A Rabbi's Admission.
A candid Jewish rabbi admitted in
a sermon some time ago that Jesus
was a good man, whose object it was
to do good, and said that he died a
martyr to his mission. Such an admis
sion puts a man who rejects the divin
ity of Christ in an embarrassing posi
tion, for now he must prove that a
good man can be a hypocrite; that a
good man can be the worst of men.
.There is no middle ground. Jesus
pressed this fact home upon the
young man who came to him. saying:
""Good master, what must I do to in
herit eternal life?" when he replied:
"Why callest thou me good? There is
none good but one, that is God." (Mark
10: 17-18.) "To say that I am good, Is
equal to saying that I am God; and
if you admit that I am good, your
place is at my feet as a worshiper,
and the place for your money is on
the altar of my service." The ques
tion of Jesus: "Which of you con
vlnceth me of sin?" challenges not
only his hearers, but ail the ages; and
their verdict has echoed the words of
Pilate: "I find no fault in this man."
Friends and foes who lived close to
him. and inspected his words and
actions, confirm the claim that he was
good. Peter says, "He did no sin,
neither was guile found in his mouth."
(1 Peter 2:22.) "Ye know." says John,
"that he was manifested to take away
our sins, and in him was no sin." (1
John 3:5.) We believe that no man
lives to-day bad enough to deny this
claim, and assert tbat Jesus wrs a de
ceiver. The very thought shocks the
consciousness of one who is at all fa
miliar with his character. If then, no
one can be found foolish enough to
claim that he was a madman, or bad
enough to assert that he was a bad
man. surely the verdict that he was
good is universal. And it good, he was
His work was to establish a king

Such a thought was not of this wor'd"
The Jews were looking for a tempore
king, to deliver them from Ronta)
rule. If Christ had taken hold of the
idea, and used it for his own advance
ment, he would have acted like a man,

plained as the success of Napoleon and
Washington can be explained. On the
contrary he opposed the leaders of

A young man. a poor mechanic, from
a mountain village, with no rich, pow
erful allies, does this in three yvars!
And he does it by the deliberate sacri
fice of himself. Men have died mar
tyrs to their mission. But man has
never yet planned martyrdom as a
part of his mission. Jesus told his
disciples that he would go to Jerusa
lem and be crucified, and on the third
day rise again. (Matt. 16:21.) He pro
vides before his death for a memorial
of that death. Men do not build monu
ments to their defeats. The French
have no monument to Waterloo. But
Jesus would have his followers re
member not the Mount of Transfigura
tion, but Calvary; not his glory, but
his shame. Indeed, he makes h!s
shame the test of discipleship, he tells
his followers that they must expect to
be hated, persecuted, killed. Men do
not try to establish kingdoms in this
way. All these things go to prove that
Jesus was not native to this world.
He was more than man, and, as I see
him standing out distinct from and
above all others, I cannot resist the
impulse to fall at his feet, and say
with Thomas: "My Lord and my God!"

DRUM OF THE REVOLUTION.
Hoeaier Has Instrument That Sound
ed Call to Arms 133 Years Ago.
Indianapolis. Ind. This is the pic
ture of a drum, the veteran of all
drums In Indiana, with an authentic
history going back to the early days
of the American revolution. This
drum, one head of which is broken,
and one of the two original sticks
that sounded the call to arms 133
years ago, is now in the possession
of Joseph W. Church of South port,

served in Company C, One Hundred
and Twenty-fourth Indiana, and mar

Church, great-grandfather of the pres
ent owner of the drum.
John Church, with three brothers,
living in Connecticut, enlisted when
the colonies rose against George HI.
One of these brothers, named Tim
othy, was a drummer. He was taken
prisoner by the British in 1778. and
was taken to Nova Scotia, where he
died of smallpox. The drum came into
possession of his brother, John
Church, and has remained with his de
scendants, first coming to his son,
Isaac Church, born September 11,
1790. From him it passed to his Boa,
George W. Church, born April 12,
1814, who removed to Lawrence town
ship, Marion county, Indiana, in 1S45.
From him it passed to his youngest
son, Joseph W. Church, the present

the old drum a number of other relics.

The valley of Jexreel lay between them.
Comment and Suggestive Thought.
Saul and the Witch of Endor. Saul,
brave as he was. felt a deep depres
sion of spirit. Why? It was not so
much the numbers and battle array of
the invading army, as his feeling of
guilt and of loss of the favor of God.
There is nothing so weakening and
depressing as a guilty conscience.
Saul made every effort to obtain the
favor and aid of Jehovah, except the
only one that could have been suc
cessful; complete repentance of sin
and turning with his whole heart to
God. Like the king in Hamlet, he
could not try what repentance could
do, because he would not repent.
His last resort was to find a sorcer
ess or witch, the whole tribe of which
he had driven from his kingdom, be
cause they led men away from God.
Saul learned that eight or ten miles
away to the north in some of the re
mote gorges of Little Hermon, near
Endor, a sorceress "had built herself
a cabin, and there in gloom and ob
scurity plied her unholy arts."
There are two possible interpreta
tions: First. That the woman was inter
rupted and frightened by the unex
pected, actual appearance of Samuel,
whose voice Saul heard, but whom he
did not see; and that Samuel uttered
the terrible words of condemnation
Second. That the whole scene was
a deception on the part of the woman.
She recognized Saul, and was glad of
an opportunity to revenge upon him
the evil he had done to her race. She
acted astonished, and made Saul think
she saw Samuel. Then she put in
the prophet s mouth only the doom
which seemed probable, and, as Mil
man says, "excepting the event of the
approaching battle, the spirit said
nothing which the living prophet had
not said before repeatedly and pub
V. 1. "And the men of Israel fled
before the Philistines." Saul's three
sons, including Jonathan, were slain.
The Philistines drove the people out
of their town and occupied the terri
tory (v. 7).
"Gibeah, Saul's own city, was
thrown, into terror. The royal family
fled for their lives. In the flight the
nurse let fall Mephibosheth, the son
of Jonathan, then a child of five
years of age. "He was lamed for life'
(2 Sam. 4:4)." James Sime.
The Death of Saul. In the general
rout, Saul realized that there was no
way of escape. He was in despair.
His army was gone, his son slain, he
himself was wounded and weak, and
God was not with him. He had
"supped full of horrors."
Finding he could not escape, "Saul
took a sword and fell upon it" (4),
the hilt on the jrround and the point
at his heart. Thus father and son lay
dead together on the field of battle.

victory. It was hung in the temple
of Dagon at Ashdod (1 Chron. 10:10).

the land ... to publish it in the
house of their idols."
A Heroic and Loving Deed. V. 11.
"The inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead
heard." Jabesh-gilead was a city of
Manasseh, east of the Jordan, about
ten miles across the Jordan valley
from Bethshan. The inhabitants re
membered the splendid feat of arms
by which King Saul at the very begin
ning of his reign delivered them from
the Ammonites under Nahash, who
agreed to spare them only on condi
tion of the loss of their right eyes.
The men in grateful memory res
cued these trophies, burned the decay
ing bodies, and gave their bones an
What Aids Did Saul Have Toward
a Blessed Life? (1) He had a long pe
riod of home preparation and testing
in little things till his powers 'were
matured before he was called to sus
tain the strain of the court and the
battlefield. (2) Saul as king was re
quired (see Deut. 17:18-20) to write
out a copy of the law. thus becoming
thoroughly acquainted with it, better
than by almost any other means; and
then , he must "read therein all the
days of his life." (3) Saul received
special influences of the Holy Spirit
(1 Sam. 10:6), fitting him for his
great duties. (4) He had the ability
to become a warrior and statesman, a
great benefactor of his nation, edu
cating them in religion, defending
them against enemies, building them
up in prosperity and true success.
What Was the Central Source of
His Failure? It was a wrong choice.
He would not yield himself heart and
soul to God, as David did?
Everyone makes mistakes and- er
rors, but they are not absolutely de
structive so long as one's central aim
and purpose is to do God's will.
"The will is the ranking official of
all in man."
"It is the will which creates the
