Memory Verses, 22-34 — Golden Text, Joshua xxlr, £4—Commentary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. 14. "Now, therefore, fear the Lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth." Joshua had fulfilled his mission and had now come to the end of his sojourn in the mortal body, being about 110 years old (verse 29). Ho assembled tlio people at Shechem, and calling for the elders and judges and officers he reminded them of all tlio Lord's goodness and faithfulness and earnestly exhorted them to servo Him sincerely. "Servo" is the key word to this address. It is found in some form at least 12 times in onr lesson, and suggests very strongly to us that we are saved in order to serve Him who saves us. See Ex. iv, 22, 23; I Tliess. i, 9; II Chron. xxix, 11. We are also to serve always in the fear of the Lord, which includes a practical acquaintance with Him and a profound reverenofc and cordial affection-for Hiiit(Prov. i, 7; ix, 10). . • ' - 16. "As for mo and my house we will servo the Lord." It is evident from-this and the preceding verso that their ancestors beyond the river (R. V.) were idolaters: From such as these Abram was called out. God does not compel, but He sets before us the right and the wrong, drawing us strongly to the right by His Holy Spirit, yet leaving us to choose. The leaders, liko Joshua, must make the choice first, for the people cannot be expected to choose the good if the leaders do not. If all teachers and preachers wore as decided and whole hearted for God as Joshua there might be less worldliness in many places. We are all too apt to consider what others do and follow tliom. We should have Joshua's spirit of whole heartedness for God regardless of others. The race is to be run "looking unto Jesus," which implies looking away from all else (Heb. xii, 1, 2). 16-18. "Therefore will we also serve the Lord, for He is our God." This is the conclusion of the people's reply to Joshua's words. They acknowledge that the Lord their God brought them out of Egypt, preserved them in all the way and brought them into the land. Therefore they should certainly serve Him, and not other gods. Their fathers had, however, made as good resolutions as these at Horeb when they said, "All that the Lord hath spoken will we do" (Ex. xix, 8), but they broke their promises in a few weeks and were found worshiping a golden calf. The law which is holy and just and good cannot help us because the flesh is so weak (Rom. viii, 8). 19, 90. "And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the Lord, for He is an Holy God. Ho is a jealous God." They couldtaeti serve Him in their own strength. They could not serve Him and others, too (Math, vi, 24). The people of an Holy God must be a holy people (Lev. xix, 3; xx, 7, 26;xxi, 8;IPet. i, 16,16;Isa.vi, 8; Rev. iv, 8). Just seven times is God called a jealous God. Besides this verse see Ex. xx, 5; xxxiv, 14; Dent, iv, 24; v, 9; vi, 15; Nah. i, 2. Compare Jas. iv, Sj'R. V., margin. The word slated <'jefcIous'> is thesanae.word that. FINIS. Love, bearing many burdens through thtt world, Came to the place where burdens are laid down. Smiling she stretched her patient hands for more. "These things are past," said one, "take now thy crown I" Love, always humble, when most beautiful, Drew back, as if such guerdon to deplore, To whom the rosy angel softly sighed, "The crown of loving is to love the more." —C. M. Packard in Youth's Companion. THE CAR GHOST. Bent's Old /Stand. e thought ifi "jefdou^'Si laiming \^hafr i? rightfnlljr His own. We alra not our own, but bought with a price, that He may be glorified in us. We tire a people for His own possession (I Cor. vi, 19, 20; Titus ii, 14, R. V.). We are to serve Him with a perfect or whole heart (I Chron. xxviii, 9), with humility (Acts xx, 19,) with gladness (Ps. 0, 2), with the Spirit (Rom. i, 9), and con* tinually (Dan. vi, 16, 20). Of ourselves we cannot do this, but Christ can, and a Christian should be able to say truthfully, "I live, yot not I, but Christ liveth in me" (Gal. ii, 20). It is written of Him, "The Son of Man came to minister," "I am among you as He that serveth," "If any man serve Me, him will My Father honor" (Math, xx, 28; Luke xxii, 27; John xii, 26). When we are fully yielded to Him according to Rom. xii, 1, 2, Ho will work in us both to will and to do (Phil, ii, 13; Hob. xiii, 21). 21. "And the people said unto Joshua, Nay, but we will serve the Lord." They seem very sincere and determined by His grace to servo Him, and we find that they did serve Him all the days of Joshua, and of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen the great works of the Lord that He did for Israel (verse 31; Judg. ii, 7). 22. "And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the Lord to serve Him." When we take a stand for the Lord, it must of necessity be against ourselves, for we are by nature against God, "The carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be" (Rom. viii, 7) Our Lord also said, "If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself" (Math, xvi, 24). From beginning to end of the Christian life it is a continued stand against self for God. "Even Christ pleased not Himself" (Rom. xv, 8). He never sought His own will, nor His own glory (John vl, 88; viii, 50), nor did He ever'take credit to Himself for either words or works (John xii, 49; xiv, 10). Paul's mottoes were "Not I, but Christ," "Not I, but the grace of God" (Gal. ii, 20; I Cor. xv, 10). See also II Cor, iv, 11. 23. "Now, therefore, put away the strange gods which are among you and incline your heart unto the Lord God of Is- The idols, the old man, the weights wuj ^setting sins, are to be put away,put off and laid ^side (Eph. iv, 22; Heb. xii, 1 5), and eyes apd fwart must be ever unto Trim We must be very slncerp pnd truthful through and through, for He desirptji i-ft+h in the lilTverd parts and under-all the imaginations of the Start* ox* the heart (Ps. 1L 6; I Chron. thougiiwoi .

She asked me to go there with her when ehe opened it to have it set in order for the summer. She confessed that she felt a trifle nervous at the idea of entering it alone. And I am always ready for an excursion. So much blue denim rather surprised me, because blue is not complimentary to Sarah's complexion—she always wears some shade of red, by. preference. She perceived my wonder; she is very nearsighted, and therefore sees everything, by some sort of sixth sense. "You do not like my portieres and curtains and table covers," said she, "Neither do I. But I did it to accommodate. And now he rests well in his grave, I hope." "Whose grave, for pity's sake?" "Mr. J. Billington Price's." "And who is he? He doesn't sound interesting." "Then I will tell you about him," said Sara, taking a seat directly in front of one of those curtains. "Last autumn I was leaving this place for New York, traveling on the fast express train known as the Flying Yankee. Of course I thought of the Flying Dutchman and Wagner's musical setting of the uncanny legend, and how different things aie in these days of steam, etc. Then I looked out of the window at the landscape, the horizon that seemed to wheel in a great curve as the train sped. Every now and then I had an impression at the 'tail of the eye' that a man was sitting in a Cj^j^gthree or four numbers in front of i the opposite side of the car. Eaca iii&^that I saw this shape I looked at the chair and ascertained that it was unoccupied. But it was an odd tiick of vision. I raised my lorgnette, and the chair showed emptier than before. There was nobody in it certainly. But the more I knew that it was vacant the more plainly I saw the man, always with the corner of my eye. It made me nervous. "When passengers entered the car, I dreaded lest they might take that seat. What would happen if they should? A bag was put in the chair—that made me uncomfortable. The bag. was removed at the next station. Then a baby was placed in the seat. It began to laugh as , though some one had gently tickled itt There was something pdd pression was strong npion ine t^at some person sitting there was Watching me. "Really^ it would not do to humor such fancies. - So I touched the electrio button, asked the porter to bring me a table, and taking from my bag a pack of cards proceeded to divert myself with a game of patience. I was puzzling to put a seven of spades. 'Where can it go?' I murmured to myself. A voice behind me prompted, 'Play .the four of diamonds on the five, and you can do it.' I started. The only occupants of the car besides me were a bridal couple, a mother with three little children and a typical preacher of one of the strait-est sects. Who had spoken? 'Play np the four, madam,' repeated the voice. I looked fearfully over my shoulder. At first I saw a bluish cloud, like cigar smoke, but inodorous. Then the vision cleared, and I saw a young man whom I knew by a subtle intuition to be the occupant, seen and not seen, of chair No. 13. Evidently he was a. traveling salesman—and a ghost. Of course a drummer's ghost sounds ridiculous— they're so extremely alive 1 Or else you would expect a dead drummer to be particularly dead and not 'walk.' This was a most commonplace looking ghost, cordial, pushing, businesslike. At the same time his face bad an expression of utter despair and horror which made him still more preposterous. Of cotirse it is not nice to let a stranger speak to Qne, .even on so impersonal a topic as a four of 4iamonds. But a ghost—there can't be any rule of etiquette about talking with a ghost I My dear, it was dreadful. That forward creature showed me how to play all the cards and then begged me to lay them out again, in order that he might give me some clever points. I was too much amazed and disturbed to speak; I could only place the cards at his suggestion. This I did so as not to appear to be listening to the empty air and be supposed to be a crazy woman. Presently the ghost spoke again and told me his story. " 'Madam,' he said, 'I have been riding back and forth on this oar ever since Feb. 22, 189—, seven months and 11 days, AH this time I have not exohanged a word with any one, For a drummer that is pretty hard, yon may believe. You know the story of the Flying Dutchman? Well, that is very nearly my case. A curse is upon me and will hot be removed until some kind soul—. But I'm getting ahead of my text. That day were four of us, traveling for different hopaes, 0ne of the boys was iq wool, one in baking powdef. one to boots and shoes and myself in pottos goods.

I missed my'footing, fell uadtt the wheels, and the nexfc. tb table, wondering which of the coroner's jury was likely to want a case of blue fiefiims. \ "'Then I remembered my' wftkea oath and understood that I was a soul doomed to wander until I could succeed insellingthat.bill of goods.

Deceased got out for beer at his own risk. The other drummers took, charge of the remains and wrote a beautiful letter to my relatives about my social qualities and my impressive conversation. I wish it had been less impressive that time. I might have lied about my sales, or I might have : said that I hoped for better luck. But after that oath there was nothing for it. Back and forth, back and forth, on this road, in chair No. 13, to all eternity. Nobody suspects my presence. They sit < on my knees—I'm playing in luck when it is a nice baby, as it was this afternoon 1 They pile wraps, bags, even rail- •way literature on me. They play card|- under my nose—and whatl.duffers some of them are 1 You, madam, are the first person who has perceived me, and therefore I ventured to speak to you, meaning no offense. I can see that you are sorry, for me. Now, if yen recall the story of the Flying Dutchman, he was saved by the charity of a good woman. In fact, Senta married him. Now I'm not asking anything of that size. I see that you Wear a wedding ring, and.no doubt you make some man's happiness. I wasn't a marrying man myself and naturally am not a marrying ghost. And that has nothing to do with the matter anyway. But if you could—I don't suppose you would have any use for them—but if you were disposed „t0 do a turn of good, solid Christian charity— I should be everlastingly grateful, and you may have that case of denims at $72.50. And that quality is quoted today at $80. Does it go, madam?' . "The speech of the poor ghost was not very eloquent, but his eyes had anf intense, eager glare which was terrible;.' Something—pity, fear, I do not know what—compelled me. I decided to do? witho&t that white and gold evening^ cloak. Instead I gave $72.50 to the ghost and took from him a receipt for the sum, signed J. Billington Price. Then he smiled contentedly, thanked me with emotion and returned to chair No. 13. Several times on the Journey, although I did not perceive him again, I felt dazed. When the train arrived at New York and I, with the other passengers, dismounted, it seemed to me that a strong hand passed uhder imy el-' bow, steadying me down the steps. As; I walked the length of the station inyj: bag—not "heavy at any time—appeared to become weightless.
