LESSON XIII, FIRST QUARTER, INTERNATIONAL SERIES, MARCH 28. A Comprehensive Review of the Quar» ter's Lessons — Golden Text, Acts xil» 24—Commentary by tlie Rev. D. M. Stearns. LESSON I.—Christ's Ascension (Acts 1, 1-14). Golden Text—Luke xxiv, 51, "While He blessed them He was parted from them and carried up into heavon." The golden text for the review, "The word of God grew and multiplied," describes the work of the Holy Spirit through tho apostles after the ascension of Christ. Wo must keep before us tho great fact that it was and still is the purpose of Godto bless the whole earth through Israel (Fs. lxvii, 1-7; Isa. lx, 1-3; Jer. iii, 17, 18; Rom. xi, 12,15); but, Israel having rejected and cruciflced their King, the kingdom is postponed until the King shall return (Luke xix, 11, 12; Acts iii, 20, 21). In the meantime we live in "the mysteries of the kingdom." LESSON II.—The Holy Spirit Given (Acts ii, 1-13). Goliion Text—Acts ii, 4, 4' They were all filled with the Holy Ghost.'' Although these disciples had been daily under the teaching of the Lord Jesus for several years, yet they were not qualified to be His witnesses, but had to wait until filled with the Holy Spirit, for He alone could accomplish in and through them what the Lord required. No wisdom or power of man can accomplish the work of the Lord, but only the Spirit of the Lord (Zech. iv, 6). When filled, they spake as the Spirit gave them utterance (Acts ii, 4). LESSON III.'—A Multitude Converted (Acts ii, 82-47). Golden Text—Acts ii, 39, "The promise is unto you and to your children and to all that are afar off." When the strangers at Jerusalem from all parts of tho world heard these unlearned men speaking in all languages and declaring the wonderful works of God, they were amazed, and some said that the disciples were full of wine. Peter, then standing forth, declared in the power of the Spirit the facts of the case, and from the Scriptures preached Christ unto them with the result that about 3,000 believed and were baptized, and the Lord continued to add daily those being saved (verses 41, 47). LESSON IV.—The Lame Man Healed (Acts iii, 1-16). Golden Text—Acts iii, 16, "His name, through faith in His name, hath made this man strong." The disciples seem to have frequented the temple, probably for the purpose of teaching, even as Jesus had done (see chapter v, 20), and on this occasion the Lord through them gave health to a man over 40 years old who had never walked a step (verse 2 and chapter iv, 22). LESSON V.—The Boldness of Peter and John (Acts iv, 1-14). Golden Text—Acts iv, 12, " There is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved." As the power of God is increasingly seen the devil's anger in-creaQOj,. and the apostles suffer imprison- MOUNTAIN ECHO. In mournful stillness rides a knight Through tlje deep vale's concave. "Ah, do I now fare to my darling's arms. Or do I but go to the darksome grave?" The echo answer gave— "The darksome grave!". As ever onvard rides the knight Bis mournful sighs increase. "Find I, so soon, in the grav»*elease? Ah, well, the grave brings peace!" " Nor did the eoho cease— "The grave brings peace." Down from the oavalier's cheek, for grief, A teardrop rolled and fell. "Is there only rest in the grave for jnef To me, then, the grave comes well." The echoes hollow swell-' "The grave comes well." —G. W. Oddie in New York Tribune. HIS HOME COMING. How I came to visit my home happened in a curious way. Six weeks ago I went down to Fire island fishing. I had had a lunch put up for me, and you can imagine my astonishment when I opened the hamper to find a package of crackers wrapped up in a weekly published at my home in Wisconsin. I read every word of it, advertisements and all. There was George Kellogg, who was a schoolmate of mine, advertising hams and salt pork, and another boy was postmaster. By George, it made me homesick, and I determined then and there to go home, and go home I did. In the first place, I must tell you how I came to New York. I had a tiff with my father and left home. I finally turned ap in New York with a dollar in my pocket. I got a job running a freight elevator in the very house in which I am now a partner. My haste to get rich drove the thought of my parents from me, and when I did think of them the hard words that my father last spoke to me rankled in my bosom. Well, I went home. I tell you, John, my train seemed to creep. I was actually worse than a schoolboy going home for a vacation. At last we neared the town. Familiar Bights met my eyes, and, upon my word, they filled with tears. There was Bill Lyman's red barn just the same; but, great Scott, what were all the other houses? We rode nearly a mile before coming to the station, passing many houses of which only an occasional one was familiar. The town had grown to ten times its size when I knew it. The train stopped and I jumped off. Not a face in sight I knew, and I started down the platform to go home. In the office door stood the station agent. I walked tip and said, "Howdy, Mr. Collins?" He stared at me and replied, "You've got the best of me, sir." I told him who I was an' been doing in New York, ani iat I h&d .didn't ie.Said nv iiv nin i. i.vi'/vfra mmm. - „ ilil- ' r ** PATlKNtS ARK MY KKi'tHKSCSS. .fc L'lulerUkers and Director*. m i||5-' v ' ' WILLiAM MULLIGAN, Funeral Director and Embalmer Prompt, careful and personal attention given to Undertaking its branches. in ail b No. Main St., - Thompsonville, Conn, ja.

We can sa ve j^ou ... g;.for then,-as.nL ong tKe Jews, those believing in Jes >uld probably be cast off by their friends aild find themselves destitute of temporal things. God's hatred of deceit is seen in His judgment of the liara LESSON VII.—The Prison Opened (Acts v, 17-32). Golden Text—Acts v, 29, "We ought to obey God rather than men." Satan's rage increases, and again the apostles are imprisoned, but no walls or bolts or soldiers can hold them unless the Lord is willing that they should be held; so He sends an angel, who delivers them and sends them to the temple to continue teaching the words of life. When again arrested in the temple in the morning and brought before the council, Peter again preaches Christ crucified and risen, and, although beaten for it, when let go they continued daily to teach and preach Jesus Christ both in the temple and from house to house. LESSON VHI.—The First Christian Martyr (Acts vi, 8-15; vii, 64-60). Golden Text —Rev, ii, 10, * Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.'' The power of the Holy Spirit is as necessary to serve table as to preach the gospel, and if one is willing to serve whole heartedly in humble service he will be led forth to greater things. The wisdom and spirit which they were not able to resist was not any wisdom of Stephen, but that of the Holy Spirit in Stephen, even the wisdom and Spirit of God. Stephen's sermon, like Peter's, was chiefly quotations from or references to Scripture, and having given his testimony he went home to be with Jesus. He is the first recorded as seeing Jesus after His ascension.'* LESSON IX.—The Disciples Dispersed (Acts viii, 1-17). Golden Text—Acts viii, 4, "They that were scattered abroad went everywhere preaching the word." The last words of Christ ere He ascended were, "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature," and "Ye- shall be witnesses unto Me unto the uttermost part of the earth" (Mark xvl, 15; Aots i, 8), yet up to the time of our lesson the witnesses do not seem to have left Jerusalem. LESSON X.—The Ethiopian Convert (Acts vii, 26-40). Golden Text—Acts vill, 85, "Then Philip opened his mouth and began at the same Scripture and preached unto him Jesus." Perhaps none of the scttcred abroad had gone to Ethlopa, but the Lord had His chosen ones even there and will somehow reach them also. LESSON XL—Saul, the Persecutor, Converted (Acts ix, 1-12, 17-20). Golden Text —I Tim. i, 15, "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." Things impossible with men are possible with God, and there is nothing too hard or wonderful for God (Luke xviii, 27; Jer. xxxii, 17). The time came for this blasphomer to be stepped, and in His own way, by His own power, the Lord humbled him and brought him to Himself. LESSON XIL—Christian Self Restraint (I Cor. ix, 19-27). Golden Text—I Cor. ix," 25, "E ;ry man that qtriveth for the mastery is tempefate in all things." Salvatioti is the free gift of God through the finished Work of Christ, and no works'or strivings of ours have any part in our redemption (Rom. ill, 24; iv, 6; Eph. ii, ;8, 9; Titus Iii, 5), but when saved through Christ it is that we may abound in good works (Titus iii, .8; Eph. ii, 10), as the evidence of our redemption, and for these works which God prepares for us we shall be rewarded at the coming of Christ (Luke xiv, 14; Rev. xxii, 12; H John Viii; I Cor. iii, 14, 1& The special work of our lesson is denial of self.

Then I went into Mr. Collins' back office, got my trunk in there and put on an old hand me down suit that I used for fishing and hunting. My plug hat I replaced by a soft one, took my valise in my hand and went home. Somehow the place didn't look right. The currant bushes had been dug up from the front yard and the fence was gone. All the old locust trees had been cut down and young maple trees were planted. The house looked smaller, too, somehow. But I went up to the front door and rang .the bell. Mother came to tfte front door and said, "We don't wish to buy anything today, sir." It didn't take a minute to survey her from head to foot. Neatly dressed, John, but a patch here and there, her hair streaked with gray, her face thin and wrinkled. Yet over her eyeglasses shone those good, honest, benevolent eyes. I stood staring at her, and then she began to stare at me. I saw the blood rush to her face, and with a great sob she threw herself upon me and nervously olasped me about the neck, hysterically crying, It's Jimmy 1 It's Jimmy I" Then I cried, too, John. I broke down and cried like a baby. She got me back to the house, hugging and kissing ma Then she went to the back door and shouted "GeorgeI" Father called from the kitchen, " What do you want, Car'- "line?" Then he came in. He knew me in a moment. He stuck out his hand and grasped mine firmly, and said sternly, "Well, young man, do you propose to behave yourself now?" He tried to put on a brave fronts but he broke down. There we sat like whipped school children, all whimpering. At last supper time oame and mother went out to prepare it. I went into the kitchen with her. "Where do you live, Jimmy?" she asked. "In New York," I replied. "What are you working at now, Jimmy?" • "I am working in a dry goods store." "Then I suppose you don't live very high, for I hear tell o' them city clerks what don't get enough money to keep body and soul together. So I'll just tell you, Jimmy, we've got nothing but roasted spareribB for supper. W«e ain't got any money now, Jimmy. We're poorer nor Job's turkey." ' I told her I would be delighted with the spareribs, and to tell the truth, John, I hays not eaten a meal in New York that tasted as good as those crisp roasted spareribs did. I spent the 'evening playing checkers with father, while mother sat by telling me all about their misfortunes, from old white Moo-ley getting drowned jn the pond to father's signing a note for a friend and having to mortgage his place to pay It. The mortgage was due inside of a week and not a cent to meet it with—just |800. She supposedtheywould be turned oat of house and home, bat in my mind I supposed they wouldn't. At last 9 o'clock came and father said: "Jim, go out to the barn and see if Kit is all right. Bring in an armful of old shingles that are just inside the door and fill up the waterpail. Then we'll go off to bed and get up early and go a-fishing." I didn't say a word, but 1 went out to the barn, bedded down the horse, broke up an armful of shingles, pumped up a pailful of water, filled the box and then we all went to bed. Father called me at half past 4 in the morning, and while he was getting breakfast I skipped over to the depot, oross lots, and got my best bass rod. Father took nothing but a trolling^ line and a spoon hook. He rowed the boat, with the trolling line in his mouth, while I stood in the stern with a silver rigged shiner on. Now, John, I never saw a man catch fish as he did. At noon we went ashore and father, went home, while I went to the post-office. I got a letter from Chicago, with a check for $1,000 in it. With some trouble I got it cashed, getting, paid in $5 and $10 bills, making quite a roll.-I then got a roast joint of beef, with a lot of delicacies, and" had them sent home. After that I went viaiting among my old schoolmates for two hours and went home. Mother had put on her only Bilk dress and father had donned his Sunday go to meeting clothes, none too good either. This is where I played a joke on the old folks. Mother was in, the kitchen watching the roast. Father^ was out to the barn, and I had ai clear, coast. I dumped the sugar out of the old blue bowl, put the $1,000 in it and placed the cover on again. At last stiff-per was ready. Father asked a blessing over it, and he actually trembled when; he stuck his knife into the roast. "We haven't had a piece of meat like that in five years, Jim," he said, and. mother put in with, "And we haven'£ Tiad any coffee in a year, only wheti we.f; went visiting." " Then she poured out the coffee aijd| lifted the cover of the sugar bowl, asJc* ing as she did so, "How many fuls, Jimmy?" _ Then she struck something that wfc&': not sugar. She picked up the bowl an# peered into it. "Aha, Master Jimmy, playing your old tricks on your main-; my, eh? Well, boys will be boya " f J Then she gasped for breath. She saWr it was money. She looked at me suadi then at father; then with trembling fingers drew out the great roll of bills/-. Ha, ha, hal I can see father now, ^ he stood there on tiptoe, with his knifet in one hand, his fork in the other,- aft ., his eyes fairly bulging out of his head.

In St. Nicholas is a paper by Julia Taft Bayne on ' 'Willie and Tad Lincoln," who were playmates of Mrs. Bayne's brother. Mrs. Bayne gives the following picture of one of their pranks: I went to the White House. As I approached I saw that it was standing indeed, but I noticed a strange grin on the face of an orderly holding some horses. Some soldiers lounging near also wore the same grin, which was intensified on the countenance of a negro coming down the walk, and this wild grin rippled and spread like a wave as I w.ent on—orderlies, soldiers, doorkeepers, all wore that peculiar smile. I asked where the boys were. " Up stairs, miss," the man said, and I heard him chuckle as he turned away. As I. came along the upper corridor Tad appeared. "Oh, Julia, come and see our circus 1" he cried when he saw me. "We've got a circus in'the attic. We're minstrels. I've got to be blacked up, and Willie can't geif his dress on; it's too Pin it up, will you? Hurry I" I took a horrified survey and said: "A circus! Does the president know it?" "Oh, yes, he knows it," said Tad. "He doesn't care. He's got some general or other in there. Come on, huiryl" Willie was struggling with the full, long skirt and flounces of a lilao silk 1 had seen Mrs. Lincoln wear at a^after-noon reception, while Budd >yore a ruffled morning wrapper which he was pinning up in billowy festoons. When the boys were nearly ready to go before their "audience, " Tad began singing at the top of his voice, ' 'Old Ab.e Lincoln came out of the Wilderness." '' Hush 1'' said Budd. ' 'The president will hear you." " ' 'I don't care if pa does hear, "and he don't care either," said Tad. "We've got to sing that in the show." And I think he did. But some time after, as Tad was singing a campaign song at our house about "Old Abe splitting rails," Willie asked my mother: ' 'Mrs. Taft, ought Tad to sing that song? Isn't it disrespectful to pa?" Tad kicked the chair, as he always did when displeased, and said, "Everybody in .this world knows pa used to split rails." Mamma explained why she thought it in bad taste, and Tad said, "Well, I'll sing about 'John Brown's Body,' then." He always obeyed my mother, though generally so headstrong. I was at their "circus" only a short time.

DAVID BRAINARD, Collector. Dated Enfield, Feb. 4, 1897. SIMM The season for SHAD has again arrived. They are the finest we have eyer seen at this time of the year, and prices are reasonable. Try them. They reach us in better condition, and we can sell them at LOWER j© PRICES than ev«r before. We like to talk TEAS! We have put in a new line which we give a present with every pound. Look in our south window. Also note some of our leaders in CANNED FRUITS: California Egg Plums, 15c Do. Cling Peaches, 15c Do. Bartlett Pears, 15c We have added a new SOAP to our stock, and believe it is good value called fl. W. King & Co.'s " Leader." G bars for 25c ; 25 bars for $1. Try twenty-five cents worth and be convinced of its merits. We call your attention to a choice California Prune—4 lb.s. for 25c. We are bound to keep up to date, watching the markets constantly in the interest of our patrons. South Main Street, Thompsonvi'lA f We still sell those choice? ALSO, CLAMS, and a Good Variety of m FRESH, SALT AND SMOKED I FISH. _ - Try a three ponnd box of our "CODFISH BITS." Come and get them or leave your order at • llttliafoSfc, It is the Poorest Kind of Economy. Especially at this season of' the year, and just now when serious colds, pneumonia and kindred complaints are so prevalent, to wear shoes that don't keep your feet warm and dry. New shoes are too cheap now to take chances with the old ones any longer. We are selling a Ladies' Imitation-Kid But*on Shoe for $1.00. This is a good looking, good wearing shoe. We have Ladies' Shoes in better grades, . but this is all right. Children's shoes in various sizes, from the "first pair of shoes' up. Men's shoes in standard grades. We wanted to say considerable about rubbers, but will have to wait till another time. When a woman gets a good pai» of rubbers for a quarter, other women are sure to know about it. We have only a few more of that grade l«ft, but / we have other kinds that are ; better and perhaps just as cheap. , y Teamsters, farmers and milkmen find great satisfaction f|§ in wearing those Wool Boots CS named "Comfort." They keep the feet dry and warm, and Hi they are as homely as they are comfortable. Our shoe business is con-, ducted in connection with our w ; general grocery business, consequently Qur profits are natur-gfl ally less than the city shoeffi. man. Come right to us when " jvbu Waiat Shoes or Rubbers. Opposite the new Catholic Chirj^ ^
