' STORE IJURNED AT J1EHWYN.
The hard ware store , lately instal
led at Berwyn by Dr. G. P. Barthol
omew of this place , was completely
destroyed by fire last Friday night
in a very short time. Somewhere b
tween eleven and twelve o'clock , a
> arty In the hotel nearby saw
flames issueing from the store and
quickly gave the alarm to the neigh-
jorhood , but when assistance arriv
ed it was found the fire had gain
ed tpo great a headway to risk fight
ng it at close quarters. Efforts
were made accordingly toward sav
ing other buildings In close proxlm-
ty and keep them from catching fir
from any of the flying sparks. At
.lie time of the fire Dr. Bartholomo
was in Dunning negotiating with a
party to take the business off his
liands and the news came as a , very
unpleasant surprise to him. No ono
seems to have been in charge of the
store at the time of the fire. A
number of Berwyn people are of the
opinion that the blaze was the work
of an incendiary as the front door
was found to be unlocked when the
firemen arrived. According to John
McGraw of this city who carries a
big part of the insurance in some of
his companies the stock fixtures and
building were insured for $4,500.00.

Why is it that Christians of ono
creed often feel bitter towards those
of another creed , and sometimes try
to entagle them as the Pharisees
did Jesus ?
Verso 1C Why did not the Pkar-
Isecs go to Jesus personally ?
Why did the Pharisees associate
with their own disciples the Ilorod-
laus In their attempt to ensnare Jes
Why did they pay , "esus this
great compliment , seeing they were
so opposed to him ?
Is it right to Ho for a good cause
Why or why not ?
What good lesson may wo learn
from these bad men ?
Verses 17-21 If these men had
really been truth seokrs , how would
Tesus have probably answered their
lucstions , as to whether it was right
for the Jews to pay taxes to Caesar ?
What difference Is there between
.lie moral obligations for a man to
pay his legal taxes , and to pay his
jutcher bill for example ?
What was Jesus' own practUo as
to paying taxes ? ( See Matt.xvlil :
Jesus rebuked these hypocrites
sharply , to what extent should wo
follow his example in this ?
Point out wherein the remarkable
skill of Jesus' answer consisted. .
Verso 22 Why was it great folly
for them to suppose they could en
tangle Jesus in his'words ' ?
Can you site the case of any who
have opposed God , without bringing
disaster upon themselves ?

still persist in opposing God , when

What Is the chief object in life ?
What can wo do. or what must

that love guarantees perfect actions ?
Give your reasons.
What is a proper self love , that
which Jesus says must be the stand

May every ono attain to loving
God with nil the heart , and his
neighbor us himself , and how can
