D. H> Stearns. 15. "And when ono of them that sat; at meat with Him heard these things he said unto Him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God." Jesus was dining with one of the chief Pharisees on the Sabbath day (verse 1), and, although He knew that they only invited Him in order to watch Him with evil intent, yet He accepted the invitation. Ho had no fear of man. He lived only to glorify God. He never said anything in secret, but always openly (John xviii, 20). In this house He healed a man who had the dropsy. Ho then taught humility to those who loved the best places. Afterward He advised His host to do good to those who could not return the compliment rather than to those who could, for thus he would be recompensed at the resurrection of the just—that is, of course, if he was a just man and would take part in that resurrec tion. This lod to the remark of one of the guests as recorded in this verse. See this kingdom and eating and drinking referred to in chapter xxii, 29, 30, 16, 18; also see Rev. xix, 9; xx, 6. 16. "Then said He unto him, A certain man made a great supper and bade many." In Math, xxii, 2, which is probably a parallel illustration, He said, "The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king which made a marriage for his son." In Isa. xxv, 6, the abundant provision for the future, which may well bo suggestive of the present, is spoken of as "a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of winos on the Ices well refined." The many who are bidden are comprehended in the "whogoevers" of John iii, 16; Rom. x, 11; Rev. xxii, 17. But how shall they hear of tho supper, and its abundant provision, and tho great King, and His dear Son, and His great love, unless some one shall bear the tidings? Are we thinking of the liundreds-of millions whoso invitations are in our hands? And wo are taking our own time to pass them on, and a very long time it is, and wo do not seem to be in the least bit of a hurry about it. * 17. "And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come, for all things are now ready." An invited guest would think it strange to be required to help prepare the feast to which he had been invited, yet sinners seom to think that they must do somewhat toward their own salvation. This is all wrong, for it is as a feast fully prepared. Our Lord Jesus Christ has by His life and death and resurrection, without the least help from any man', wrought out a complete redemption for all who will accopt Him, and Ho Himself is made unto all such "wisdom, righteousness, sanctifica-tion and redemption" (I Cor. i, 80). The great word for us to cry is "Come." See Isa. i, 18; lv, 1, 8; Math, xi, 28; ,Rev. xxii, 17. . 18. "And they all, with one\ consent, Helen's face is like a book- Charming all its pages. .

It was for the lost and the outcast from all society. We had a nice tea, with an abundance of good things'for about 100 people. Free tickets had been given to as many women of the street (for it was specially for them), and they had promised to come, but when tho hour had come, and all things were ready, not one woman appeared. I then made a tour of the houses and saloons, and by loving entreaty obtained some; a second tour obtained some men, and a third visit some children, and so our tables were filled. I can never forget it. 19, 20. "I pray thee have me excused," or, "Therefore I cannot come," was the reply from each. How trivial the reasons I A piece of ground to be seen, some oxen to be proved, or a wife to be admired. It is not likely that a man would buy a piece of ground without first seeing it,* or some oxen without first proving them, so that there seems to have been some lying back of these excuses. As to the wife, why could he not bring her with him, for a man and his wife are one, and he would be a poor specimen of a man who would accept an invitation to any place where his wife was not wanted? He is also a poor specimen of a Christian who can go where his Saviour is not wanted. An honest reply from these accusers, who evidently did not like the man who made the suppe?, would have been, "No; I do not care to go." They Illustrate the fact that "the carnal mind is enmity against God." 21. "Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of tho city and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind." The servant's responsibility is to deliver his Master's message plainly, faithfully and lovingly; then tell his Master and leave results to Him. We read that the apostles told Jesus all things, both what they had done and what they had taught (Mark vi, 80). Let this be our custom, relying upon His assurance that His word will accomplish that which He pleases (Isa. lv, 11). But now notice that the servant is sent to a new lot of hearers, and are we to be ever inviting the same rebellious people, or speed the invitation to those who have not yet heard? In view of the command, "Preach the gospel to every creature!" what think you? 22. "And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room." The people possessing this world's goods having refused the invitation, it was next given to those who had no possessions, the poor of this world, etc., but while some of these oame there was yet.room, for "with the Lord there is plenteous redemption" (Ps. exxx, 7). 23. "And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in,- that my house may be filled." A yet wider range and a nroro urgent call. Does it not seem as if He was now urging us more than ever to enter the open doors on every side, and at least compel people to hear'the glad tidings that.so all whom the Father lias given to Him may oome to Him, and tho time of the kingdom come? The portion of the chapter following our lesson teaches us how to be His true disciples. All who truly accept mm are saved , by Him, but we are saved in order to become His witnesses and fellow laborers (Aots i, 8. I Cor. iii, 9), and this can be accomplished only on the lines of verses 26, 27, 38. 24. "For I say unto you that none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper." Compare chapter aciii, 28 and S6e Job xxxvi, 18. This does not leave any room for a possiblity of another chance after death. While there is life on the earth in this mortal body whosoever will may come, but the Soul that dies rejecting Christ cuts itself off from all hope. "Now l« the accepted time."

In 1775 tho brigantine Governor Clinton left Philadelphia loaded with flour for Spanish Town, Jamaica. It was the 15th of December, and Captain Ira Drake, her commander, expected to eat his New Year's dinner on the island. Everything was auspicious, and with a northwest wind he sailed down the river, He remarked long after that he felt unusually flurried by his parting with Mrs. Drake and his daughter Emma, on the wharf, bat not being of an imaginative turn of mind the.-impressions passed, and be saw the tall poplars and red roofed farmhouses in the Neck fade away under the winter sunset with professional indifference. The Governor Clinton was only 480 tons, and she left port in company with 26 others, foreign bound, most of them square rigged. At the present time there are only two ships owned in Philadelphia, and neither sails from here. Mrs. Drake and Emma walked up Second street to their home, which was in the house then a two story, afterward the tea store of the late eccentric John Lamond, who died a few months ago. To be a captain's wife in those days was to hold social position next below the magnates of Society Hill, and Captain Drake was reported a prosperous man. "Mother," said the daughter, "do you feel any unusual anxiety in parting with father this voyage?" "No, my dear. Don't let such things get into your mind." "Yes, but the Aggy Slade has been out over 60 days, and she's bound for Jamaioa too. Poor Mrs. Folsom is just wild about her husband. How I do wish father would give up the sea and stay ashore!" Shipmasters' wives had to have stout hearts in those days; there were perils on the sea then that are unknown now. A West India voyage meant poor oharts, dodging among the reefs and keys of the Bahama banks, northers, hurricanes and more deadly assaults the coast of Cuba and were secretly upheld by the Spanish authorities, who shared their plunder, and at this time both ' Tardy and the La Fittes were known t9 be cruising in the gulf. Christinas passed, and as New Year's came on a feeling of uneasiness and dread entered into the Drake household. Emma had an additional source of anxiety. Sam Spain, although only 24, was first officer of the Governor Clinton and a splendid specimen of the Amerioan sailor, and before this voyage he and Emma had exchanged vows. And so poor Emma fretted and made her mother anxious. New Year's day, 1796, was cold, blustering and sleety, and after attendance at early mass at St. Joseph's both women sat down to breakfast. "For the Lord's sake, Emma, don't tell me anything about your dreams. You make me nervous. Your father and the brig are all right, and when the Quickstep comes in we'll hear from Spanish Town. She sails from there today." "But, mother, there is something in dreams, and I never had such dreadful ones before, and you know—good God, what is that?" And the girl's voice arose to a scream. "Oh, mother! On your hand, on your hand 1" The mother looked and grew pale as death. There on her plump, white hand was a drop of ruddy blood. She murmured, "Maybe I pricked myself with the fork. " And with a shudder she wiped away the dread. token. But there was no wound, the skin being unbroken. "There, there, it has come 'again. Oh, mother, let's pray 1 My dear father and Sam are in peril. I know it I feel it." And they knelt and with heads bowed down prayed to him who rules the windB and tempests to spare their loved ones on the sea. The Governor Clinton was an old tub and did her best when she reeled off eight knots on a bowline, but this time, under a fair northeast wind, she was outting a feather through the waves of the Bahama banks on the 19th of De cember. Here her good luok ended. A norther set in, driving them 200 miles off'their course, and then head winds blew for a week, so that it Was the last day in the year before they oame in sight of the Cuban coast, and not over ten miles off Cape St. Antoine the wind failed, and there came one of those dead calms peculiar to those latitudes. The sails hung without a shiver, and the pennant was as straight down as a yard of pump water. But this was not the worBt. Captain Drake knew that he was in the track of the pirates and was prac tically helpless to keep away from them, and at this moment he was doubtless signaled off shore to some of their vessels. Everything depended on keeping a stout heart. His six 04 pound carronades were loaded with grape and kentledge, the arm obest was opened, cutlaSses and pistols were served to the crew, muskets were loaded, and the cook filled his oop-. pers with hot water ready to repel boarders. All hands kept watch that night, and in the morning Mate Spain went aloft with a glass. He at onoe hailed the deok. ''Ther^ is a topsail schooner lying behind that point of land off ^ilse starboard quarter. I can't make oni any sail on her." "All right Come down. . We'll haiye breakfast There's trouble ahead. Bat !4 there are 38 of ns, all. good men, and We ou^ht to make a tidy fight for our liV68e " '• A strict watch was kept at the mast-bead, and at 10 o'clock a hail oame: ?$hetre%a: IN* £*11 ^ • shore.

There were not less than 40 men in the yawl. When it was within about 20 yards of the boat, the captain (fried, "Fire!" But as usual two of the oarronades missed fire, the other scattered ton feet wide of the boat, and next it swept under the bow, the leader a white man, springing into the chains, followed by a gang of mulattoes, negroes and Spaniards, all big men. Their captain's head just oame above the bow, when he was run through the, neck by a pike and dropped over-board, but his men managed to get on the bowsprit and come aboard. Two of the pirates mounted the channels and tumbled into the waist. The cook, a negro giant weighing 800 pounds, rushed at them with a cutlass, beat down their guard and hewed them down. A third had grasped the swifter to help him up, when his arm was cut olean off at the shoulder by the negro. A splash in the water told the rest. In the bow the defenders had done good work, but Captain Drake was stretched on the bits covered with blood. The last pirate had run out on the jib boom and fired his pistol just as a musket ball took his life, but he had d< ie his work, for poor Spain got his bu" at in the head and never spoke after. Tiiey were beaten, and under a parting volley the ruffians sprang to their sweeps and with the loss of half their crew made for land. Suddenly the mainsail gave a flop. No orders were needed. The topsail halyards were manned. '' Up with the flying jib, trim sheets, round in starboard braces I" was the cry; and the little brig began to surge through the water. "See, seel The schooner's making sail. Up go her gaff and foresail. The fight's not over, men ! She'll cut us to pieces with her long Tom!" Just -then came the sound of a heavy gun, and so intent were the crew watching the pirate vessel that they had not seen, half a mile away, a British corvet piling on sail up to royals. She was a flier, too, and inside of five minutes swept down on the brig, hailed and was told what had occurred. The pirate craft was intent only on saving her men in the yawl, but it was too late. The corvet ran her down and at 100 yards gave the marauders a shower of grape that tore the boat and crew into splinters. The schooner made off, followed by the man-o'-war, and both disappeared in the southern board. The second mate took command of thie' brig. Her captain had a broken thigh and a shot through his body, while the mate and four of the crew lay dead. The breeze kept steady, and on the #h of January they came to anchor in Spanish Town harbor. Captain Drake lived to get well and quit the sea. But before followed her lover. to a better land, •s' Philadelphia Times. [For The Press.] PIE. ftjLWElGfff ROYAL IS Absolutely Pure. " A cream of tartar baking powder. Highest of all in leavening strength. "—Latest U.S. Government Food Report. ROYAL BAKING POWDER Co., 106 Wall St., N.Y. I was fated that night, for before I had gone half way across that room I had bumped against and tipped over a chair and also given the table a severe jar. But I reached my desired haven at last and proceeded to feel cautiously around for my hard earned pie. The first thing I put my fingers into was a small pan of oil. Not having anything with which to wipe them, I rubbed it thoroughly into my hair. When I got back to the light I found it was not oil but liquid stove polish. Liquid stove polish is very hard to get out of the hair and it takes time and patience to do it well. I found the pie and what I thought was a small plate of cheese close by it. I took a bite of pie and then put in a sizable piece of cheese to go with it, whereupon I found that, my supposed cheese was a portion of suet that was going to be used in cookinir the next day. Speaking candidly and unreservedly, I can say that there may be worse combinations than pie and suet, but I doubt it very much. I decided to finish on pie alone. In going back I proceeded with a caution born of experience and managed to hit nothing but the coal-hod, which was empty. It banged against the side of the room in a most delightful manner. Some one called and wanted to know if I had arrived home yet. I replied: "No, I am having a severe case of nightmare down at the office." j Then, shutting my eyes, I felt my way jack to my room, which I reached with-lut further accident. Internally there |'a s a feeling of great satisfaction. Ex-t >rnally there was an abundance of sore 6 JOtS.- - • .WlNTHEOP. BEING AN ACCOUNT OP HOW I GOT SOME. One evening not long since I was detained at the office until a late hour and when I arrived home the rest of the household were wrapped in the arms of Morpheus. One of them was wrapped quite tight, judging from the noise he made at every breath. I shut the door softly, and, taking-off my shoes, meandered quietly to my room. I had partially disrobed when I suddenly stopped. I thought I felt hungry. Now, when I feel a longing for food, be it real or imaginary, that longing must be satisfied or I feel nervous, so straightway I began to think what would be the proper thing to fill the aching void with. It did not take me long to decide upon pie. I knew just where the pie was usually kept, and the more I thought of it the more irresistible became the desire, so I prepared to descend to the realms of the pantry. There is a room between the one I snore in—for snoring seems to be one of the strong points of the family—and the head of the stairs. This room contains a great amount of emptiness. Nevertheless, I stuck both hands out straight in front of me just as though there were a multitude of things to run into. At the head of the stairs there is a door which is generally kept shut. This particular night somebody was kind enough to leave it open for my especial benefit. I see now that I ought to have kept > my arms moving, for it would have saved the recording angel some very hard and rapid work for a few minutes. The door slipped in between my arms without the least warning and I should not have been aware of its presence at all if it had not come in contact with my nose. If my nose had been longer I might have saveid my knee and toe, but as it was I have no personal recollection of any perceptible difference in time between the hitting of the three portions of my mortal fram^.

This institution, now open for the reception of patients, is situated on Round Hill, in Springfield, in the building formerly occupied by the Keeley Institute, in. the " City of Homes." A more beautiful city than Springfield does not exist in New England certainly; and, we believe, would be hard to find were even a much greater area included; and when we say that Round Hill is the most delightful spot in this beautiful city we voice the sentiment of all who have visited the place. The grounds (covering 5| acres) are well wooded—oaks, chestnuts? beeches ar d pines—affording excellent shade during the summer.months, and protection from the icy blasts of winter. These trees are inhabited, we might almost say infested, with gray squirrels, and many an hour, which might otherwise pass wearily to the invalid, may be pleasantly beguiled in watching the antics of these little fellows. The aim of the management is to make this institution as unlike a hospital, and as near like the patient's own home as is consistent with proper care and treatment, thus keeping the patient in a contented frame of mind, which is half the battle in the struggle for life and health. Private rooms or beds in wards are furnished at reasonable rates, which will be sent to any address on application. The number of patients being limited, insures the best of care, nursing and medical attendance. West Springfield and Holyoke cars pass the door. Connected by telephone.

Cultivate the habit of breathing through ie nose and taking deep breaths. If this 1 fabit was universal, there is little doubt llbat pulmonary affections would be decreased one-half. An English physician calls attention to this fact, that deep and forced respirations will keep the entire body in a glow in the coldest weather, no inatter how thinly one may be clad. He was himself half frozen to death one night, and began taking deep breaths and keeping the air. in his lungs as long as possible. The result was that he was thoroughly comfortable in a few minutes. The deep respirations, he says, stimulate the blood currents by direct muscular exertion, and cause the entire system to become pervaded with the rapidly generated heat.

It is a well-known practice for publishers who desire to fabricate a big circulation for the purpose of "working" unwary advertisers to issue special editions, or for several weeks greatly increase the number of copies printed for gratuitous distribution, and on the strength of the number thus struck off by their press make exaggerated and practically false representations to business men who are solicited to advertise with them. These schemes, every honest man will say, are disreputable. In effect they constitute a confidence game which, we regret to say, is sometimes played by publishers who ought to be above that kind of business.
