Comte Raymond de Villemore beheld his doctor gazing on him sadly. "i3ave<fl once more!" breathed the comte, and lis Fmiled as he stretched ont his arms. "Mypoor friend," sighed the doctor. The sick man stared aghast. "Pull yourself together," he continued. "You are a man who can stand ftthfl truth.'' • "What do you mean?" "Your symptoms aro those of the nona." "Oflltvhat?" "A curious plague. When tho state of lethargy is over, tho patient has three lucid hours, at the end of which he dies suddenly.'' "Whew!" "Now, look here, keep your spirits up, like tho plucky fellow you are! After all is raid and done life is not worth living for. Goodby—goodby. my poor friend—goodby." Ten minutes later the „comte had risen. Clad in his flannel emoking jacket, ho was putting the last touches to his toilet. The doctor had withdrawn that his friend might have time to settle his worldly affairs. When ho had done brushing his mus-tacho and smoothing his finger nails, Raymond chose one of*Ins driest cigars and lit it, while casting a sorrowful look at the others, these which he was not to smoke. Then ho threw himself on his divan and begair'to reflect. However brave he might be, however fearless of death, Comte de Villemere soon came to the conclusion that his case was a peculiarly aggravating one. Tho day before, so soon as he was taken with fever—he had made up his mind to prepare for the worst—he had sent for his lawyer, and for a priest, and destroyed all his letters. Then he had laid down his giddy head and fallen asleep with the conviction that he would not awako again before doomsday. But now he was like a condemned man, who, after having made sure of a reprieve, found himself suddenly on the •way to the scaffold. Outside the cheery atmosphere of a bright June day the Champs Elysees were alive with, a continuing stream of 6mart carriages. Everything spoke of happiness and health. He himself had-never felt so fit, and he was asked to believe that tomorrow there would be nothing left of all this—so far as he was concerned—but a mournful crowd of friends, a trip in a slow jolting hearse and the mumbling of a priest before an open grave. Tomorrow the joys and friendly ties of bis whole life would be gone forever. While he was finishing his cigar, reclining listlessly on the cushions of his divan, Raymond saw all his life flit past him.as in a dream. Nearly forgotten episodes of his childhood cropped up as if they were quite recent. Then in rapid succession his mind dwelt on the many times he had fallen in love between 15 and 25 until he came to the first month of his married life. How full of unmitigated joy those days had been! Raymond remembered the minutest events of his honeymoon or moons spent in fun and frolic, with pleasant excursions, verging on bachelor's dissipation and freaks which made lively gossip for, fashionable folk. Delighted beyond measure by the admiration which his wife excited wherever he took her, he was more madly in love after his marriage than before. He would have been jealous if the mere possibility of such a thing could have been seriously entertained by either of them. And all this passionate love had been brought to an end by a scandalous separation owing to a blunder on his pari and a rash escapade of the little comtesse. By mutual consent they had separated. Yet, strange to say, their love for each other had continued. So far as the world was concerned, their relations were restricted to icy bows whenever they met on the boulevards, but their professed indifference for each other scarcely deceived their common friends. The idea of dying without having seen once more the woman he loved above all others appeared preposterous to the comte. Studied obstinacy and stem resolve seemed to be altogether out of place when brought face to face with everlasting separation. What risk did he run now in attempting a reconciliation even if it were not to succeed? Raymond sprang to his feet, and seating himself before h:'H writing desk scribbled hurriedly a short telegram and sent it off by his valet. He looked at his watch. He had two hours more to !ive. The comtesse would have timo to come. Would she come? Would she be touched by a note containing a dying man's farewell?. Or, in the relentless dignity of offended, wornan, would she refuse to forgive even tinder t separated him circumstances? The anguish of uncertainty, adde'd to the moral torture, made Raymond winoe despite nil his nerve and resolution to ; take his inevitable fate coolly. With, something very like terror he eyed the; fleeting minutes which from eternity. Another hour flew away while he was getting ready to die, stopping now and then to muse with melancholy on his-past life. He wrote to his mother a very long letter, full ol1 remiuiscenccs of his, early life, and as to his eyes. Suddenly Raymond started at the sound of the electric boil. After a few: seconds of wild expectation tho door was opened and the servant ushered in--* "Mme. la Comtesse de ^Villemerel*^ He rose from his seat very paledjp *7* "Odette!" he exclaimed. - ^<0 But the young woman remained standing on the threshold, her features contracted with anger. ; "This is a most shameless trick, sir.*® "A trick! What do you mean? "You wrote me word that yonTare he did so tears came dring, and writing your letters. Goodby, sir." Vf|| "Odette! Do let mo explain. On® word only." And as she was leaving the-comte snatched up from hi3 desk the: letter he was writing to his moth#W^n . , „ and held it out to her. "Read this be?® fore leaving," he gasped, She took the letter, glanccd at th; first few lines and then fell on Ray mond's neck, sobbing. "Poor boy! It was tho truth." For a few minutes they remained:; ness the November mist, and they dwelt . with pleasure on- the day when they had roantered side by side, rustling the brown 'leaves which covered the forest path. Miniature fans, dusty accessories of charming cotillons, reminded them of a German waltz which they had danoed ' before their marriage and how they had flirted the same evening under the palm trees of the hothouse. They lived ovet again their rides in the Bois de Boulogne "under the green, •\shady boughs when they were like two boys out for a spree, breakfasting at the |ESvilion Chinois and coming baok |th rough the Champs Elysees to take their part in the exuberant life of the _.gay city. They would part, for a few pours yearning to meet again—after beting bored at the club and at 5 o'clock ^foea—in their box at the opera or in the ite-a-tete of their home. ! Raymond and Odette were so absorbed by those old souvenirs that they became oblivious of time and of the terri-le circumstance which had brought them together again. The bell rang.

This event is also recorded by bo.th Matthew and Luke. It is in eaoh immediately preceded by the saying of Christ that we must become as little children in order to enter the kingdom, and it is followed by Peter's remarks about their having left all, and the question as to what they should have, and the Saviour's reply. By comparing the three accounts we find that this earnest, anxious soul was a young man, a ruler and very rich. These facts, coupled with that of his running after Jesus and kneeling down before Him in the street, seem to indicate very great earnestness on his part in reference to this great matter of eternal life. 18. "And Jesus said unto him: Why Callest thou me good? There is none good •but one. That is God." As if He said, "In calling me good, do you confess that I am God?" Ho does not, as we might heartily receive the young man, saying, "I am so glad you have asked me. Sit down with me quietly, and I will show you in a few minutes, for it is very easy." He does not think in His heart: Now, here is a splendid catch. I must get him by all means. Think what his social position and influence will bo to us and think what his money will do for us. We must have him. 19. " Thou knowest the commandments. Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honor thy father and mother." Thus in answer to His question He takes Him, as he did the lawyer, at once to the law, and to what we call the seoond table, his duty to man, for we can only prove our love to God by our love to our fellows. Before we can know the way to life eternal we ZQUst*have our eyes opened to see our guilt and inability to do anything to obtain thisr eternal life. 20. "And he answered and said unto Him, Master, all these have I observed &om my youth.Wo will suppose that he was thoroughly honest in this reply And aotually thought he had not failed in any of these commands, but it is evident that he neither knew his own heart nor the spirit of the law as Jesus had taught it (Math, v, 21-28), or he would not thus have justified himself. Paul speaks of this kind of righteousness which this young man had as "mere own righteousness which is of the law," but he learned to count it all as dross when he saw the Righteousness which is of God by faith (Phil, iii, 9). 21. "Then Jesus, beholding him, loved him and said unto him, One thing thou lackest, go thy way, sell whatsoever thou bast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, take tip the cross and follow me.'' There is no one whom Jesus does not love. He loves those who are dead in sins (Eph. ii, 4, 5), but His heart went out with a special love to this young man. The one thing he lacked was jupt this knowledge of the love of Christ. : ilteSS 29. "And h& wais sad at that sayingand went away grieved, for be had great pos- 'sessions. " Jesus had now put His hand upon the sore spot as when He said to the woman of Samaria, "Go, call thy husband. " Empty and dependent as a little child we must come if we would know Him and His ]0ve and grace and fullness. . 88. "And Jesus looked round about and :saith unto His disciples, How hardly shall they that have riohes. enter into the kingdom of God." The kingdom of God meant more to. Jesus than it meant to His disciples or than it means to many Chris-tittos^ ow. I this day listened to a sermon preached to about 2,000 people in St, Giles) cathedral, where once the voice of John'iKnox rang out the truth, in which the real kingdom whioh Jesus and all the prophets preached was wholly set aside, .-j? 24. "And the dlsoiples wore astonished His jyords, bat. Jesus ansyrereth again «j?d 8alth unto them, Children, how hard i it tot them that, trust in riohes to enter (oVeof money (X Tim. vi, 10), tfr, as Jesus ere puts it, the trust in or reliance upon h«3, instead of uppn the giver of every jC§ift, Who glvetk us rich# a" thlhgs ""Joy." Abraham was Tich, and David many mighty, not many noble" (I Cor. i, 26). One has well said, "Thank God for the letter M. 25. L'It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.'' It is simply impossible for any man, rich or poor, to enter the kingdom without being born from above (John iii, 3, 6, 7), but that is not probably the truth taught here. If there was in a large city gate a small gate which only a camel could go through with difficulty by unloading, and if this small gate was called "a needle's eye," it would help us to understand these words of the Saviour. Whatever illustration He had in mind, it is plain that He teaches us that it is next to impossible for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven, but God, who is love, has m^de full provision for whosoever will receive His love (Rev. xxii, 17). 26. "And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who, then, can be saved?" It would seem that to the minds of the disciples Jesus had spoken, not of a bare possibility, but of an impossibility, at least as far as all the rich were concerned. This, with- many other passages of Scripture, such as I Tim. vi, 9, 17; Zeph. i, 18; Ps. xlix, 6, 7, should certainly teach us not to covet riches, except as they may be used for Hirti and His kingdom. It is possible to be poor, yet make many rich, to seemingly have nothing and yet possess all things (II Cor. vi, 10). Think of Him who, though He was ri<?h, yet for our sakes be-camo poor and let Him be our durable riches as well as righteousness (II Cor. viii, 9; Prov. viii, 18). 27. "And Jesus, looking upon them, saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God, for with God all things are possible." There is nothing too hard or too wonderful for the Lord, for His name is wonderful (Gen. xviii, 14; Jer. xxxii, 17; Judg. xiii, 18, margin; Isa. ix, 6). When simple faith receives the wonderful Saviour and Lord, the most commonplace life will become wonderful by Hisjmdwelling and outworking. The greatihing on our part is to know our nothingness that mayjjot eeek to bring Hi f\ anything, mm """ " TAXES. Hbe ftbompsonvUle press.
