This statement, which is the result of prolonged consideration by  the standing committee of the society, expressly excludes any judgment on the question of the parliamentary franchise. Its object is to  embody a testimony, based on the  experience of two hundred and sixty  years of Quaktrism, of the essential  spiritual equality of men and women.  After dwelling on the historical  evidences of thc equality of man  and woman throughout the history  of tlie Society cf Friends, tlie declaration fs made that "in the home,  in the church, in the wider sphere  of public life, the service rendered  by women is recognized as having  been of pr:celess worth; it is universally felt among us that, had  their activities been lettered by artificial limitations, __.the loss to themselves    and to the community would  Dr'r.ik Under the Pulpit  Residents of Belluve East in  South Africa are enjoying a joke at  the expense ol! a Presbyterian congregation whose church is situated not  a thousand miles from that district.

"What am I to do?" he asked nervously of the official at the door.  "Kneel, kneel!"  Suiting the action to the word, he  immediately fell on his knees, and,  like the funny man at a child's tea  party, propelled himself along the  floor on his knees.

ISABYSSKIN  Nuremburg Claims the First Watch  AVhere were the first watches made?  Watches were first made in Nuremberg, at about the time of the discovery of America, that is, at the end  of the fifteenth, century* History does  not .seem to have preserved the name  of the inventor, tut he was doubtless  a German. The watch was at first  only a small clock, inclosed in a box,  the motive power being furnished by  a mainspring. Frequently they wera  globular in form, and hence were often called "Nuremberg Eggs." They  were too large to carry in the pocket,  and were u_.ual.3- worn hanging from  the girdle. At first, the invention was  far from perfect, but one by one the  faults were overcome, until, in the  eighteenth century, the watch had become what it is today.

One of the representatives of ..he  firm g.ves a word of advice upon the  preservation ant?. treatment of pearls  Upon no account, he said, should  they be locked up in a safe or other  dark pUc<* for '.engthy periods, since  such treatuient lioon causes them to  lose their life' and become dull.  If thoir fair owners find that for  some--reason or other- they cannot  wear them outside their garments  they should make a point of wearing  them uh ien_.i--_-.tli their dress, next to  the skin. Constant contact with tin  human skin giv._s to the stones light,  lustre, gtoss and sheen. The best possible way to keep pearls in a perfect  state of preservation as well as to  prolong their life, is to wear them  always, both by night and by day.

Porcelain Ships  Liners of porcelain driven by  petrol-may one day oust the steam-  driven ship bf steel and wood.- Tlie'  porcelain ships is the plan of W.  Hales Turner, of Gravesend, a famous potter. ��������� His scheme is that,  apart irom the sides and framework,  ships should be built of plate porcelain. Afte- 40-years' labor and an expenditure of about $500,000 it has beea  discovered Iiow to manufacture plaf.e  porcelain at $35 a ton in any size up to  15 by 10 feet.  Mr. Turner points out the advantages of the new material as regards  cheapness, cleanliness and* permanence. It is ehfeaper than any of its  rivals, it harbors no vermin, it can  be cleaned by washing, the decorations can be supplied at the time cf  manufacture and will never need re-  -icvv'irig, and it will never need painting. -"Such a ship could be "washed up" like a china cup.

Hen's Laying Depends on Feeding  Undoubtedly many chickens eat  more than they* >ifced, but-the hen that  is properly ted will turn her surplus  into eggs, the hen that is fed barely.a  maintenance ration is necessarily unprofitable. On* reason the beginner  with a small flock fe _ largely from the  table scraps can figure out so low .a  cost of feodin.*. chickens is because he  doesn't co-it the cost of the food he  would need to buy were it not for the  scraps. TI12 right way to figure-, the.  cost of r* hen's >:eed is not by the value  of the table scraps at first cost, nor is  it ������������������ right to estimate that they cost  nothing, but by what it would cost to  replace  them witli poultry  food.

Long foreheads, with smooth skin  and no wrinkles, characterize peopie  of a quiet, rsedate nature.  Well arched brows, with one slight  perpendicular wrinkle, belong to wise  and discreet parsons.  Foreheads prominent just above the  eyebrows denote strong individuality.  A perfect forehead should havo almost straight eyebrows, clear and well  defined, but not heavy.  A. long firehoad shows Intelligence;  a short one act t\ Ity.  A broad -orelitad denotes great mental ability; an Irregular, knotty ono a  bold, origlna and Investigating mind.

When a hunt is arranged among the  villagers they usually meet early in  the mora'ng a*, a prearranged aprt  with their dogs. According to the  Coofg custom, they all sit "down for a  whllo. Having rested, they proceed to  discuss and decide which part of the  surrounding jungle they are to beat.  This being decided, the hunters station themselves at points of vantage  and the beaters endeavor to drive the  game, if any, towards them.  If before the hunt commences, any  of the dogs lie down and rub their  backs against the ground, it is considered a good omen and the hunters  ���������m.a  _,,m  .r-p  o   "nii*������  in- tho    iunsle  they are about to beat..  On the conclusion of a successful  day's hunt all the animals shot are  brought together, beside a stream if  possible/and cut up, none of the hair  being removed. First of al the head  and thigh and a strip of-meat from  the best part is cut from each animal,  these being the reward of those Who  shot the animals. Strips of, flesh  about a cubit long are then cut for  those who first touched the animal  after it was shot. Then the number  ofv men and dogs are counted, and  the remaining portion is cut up into  as many pieces as there are men and  dogs, bitches among the dogs getting  no share. .  After this is done the distribution  takes "place. The "shooters" get their  share first, then the "touchers,'  the the other hunters, and lastly the  dogs? their share being taken by-the  owners. A speech is made praising  the successful shots* and wishing  them better luck next time. Those  who were not ready and did hot fire  when the game passed them (they  still use the old muzzle-loaders) are  censured, and now comes the curious  part of the proceedings. Those unfortunates who fired but missed are  made to stand in the centre of a circle  of thorns and are flogged on. their  bare legs until they bleed! Though  most of these men are independent,  well-to-do farmers they submit to  this torture because "it is th--. cus  torn."

Thousands  have proved this by personal experience, as is shown by the following typical instance. Mrs. James Boyle,  Dartmouth, N.S., says: "For years I  was a sufferer from indigestion. I  could not take food without feeling  terible distress afterwards, and in consequence I was badly run down. Sometimes after eating I would take spells  of dizziness with a. feeling of numbness throughout my body, and at other  times my heart would palpitate so violently that I feared I would die. Naturally I was doctoring continually,  but without getting better. Then my  husband got me a supply o������ Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and before long I  found they were helping me, and I  continued to take them until I was restored to health. I was never in better health than I am now, and I owe  it all to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

Where finance minister Wliite  will apply his special tax cannot be  said, but it will be imposed on commodities which are necessities, so  that the needed money will flow into the treasury.  The expenses of tlie Canadian  troops have to bo met, and ^the  money has to be found. This will  be Canada's first experience with a  war.

Der Nordwestern, a German  paper published in Winnipeg, in a  recent issue had a proclamation  summoning all undischarged members of the German army and navy  residing in Manitoba or in Canada  to betake themselves at once to  Germany and report to the nearest  authority for active service.  This is, of course, treason, war or  no war between Great Britain and  Germany at the time of its publication, but aggrovated by the fact  that Great Britain and Germany  were at war at tho time.  The Germans, as a class, aro  among Canada's best settlers, have  provod worthy citizens, and as a  body will repudiate such action.

The C.P.R  department of natural resources is a  Kch of a railway enterprise that  is quite unique on the American continent, or, for the matter o������ that, m  the world.   Formed at the .beginning  of 1912, it consolidated the then existing land department with other interests in minerals, timbers, etc., and  now-adminlsteres natural ^sources^of  these   Kinds in Western ��������� Canada that  ..���������..._-,,_.,. ������ vnint* of over 2i>0 million  dollars. , _������������������_������__. ������������������  Here are some of the activities of  the department.

It has placed  farmers with seed grain for sale m  [touch with purchasers. It has run,  in conjunction with the provincial governments? "Better Farming" demonstration trains.  Through its development branch, it  puts a roof over the newcomer's head  and gives him a definite start in his  farming operations. In 1913 it built  237 houses, 220 barns, and other  buildings, drilled 133 wells, strung 274  miles of fence, broke 8,400 acres,  ploughed or backset 6,000, disced 36,*  500, harrowed 13,000, seeded 5,800, and  harvested 2,000���������all of which operations were spread over an area <00  miles by 200 miles.  Through Us town-site branch, it  creates new towns along its system  at the rate of about one a week all the  year round. Through its industrial  branch, it attracts manufacturers,  wholesalers and retailers to these new  towns and also to established towns  and cities.  Through its engineering branch it  controls the operation and maintenance of the greatest individual irrigation project on the American continent. Thi. irrigation block lies east of  tlie city of Calgary, and contains over  three million acres, divided into three  sections, of which the western section  is practically all developed and the  eastern section now beginning to be  settled. It also administers a smaller  irrigation block containing some 125,-  000 acres near Lethbridge, in Southern  Alberta.  Through its forestry branch it is engaged in stimulating tho growth of  trees on the prairies, having started a  competition to that end with priz.  money aggregating $2,500. The tores-  try branch also patrols the valuable  timber limits owned hy the company,  and takes measures to prevent forest  (ires; it plants troea along the railway  lines for windbreaks, to replace the  old wooden snow fences, and takes  care of thc heautillcation of gardons  at railway stations. The department  has its own nurseries nt Wolsleiy,  Sask., and its own mill at Bull River,  1..C., from which, and by purchase  from othev lumber mills and rancher!., nre obtained tho ties, polos, piling and other lumber necossary in  railway construction.

Suggestions Fer Prolonging Its Neatness and Usefulness  To remove loose knife blades immerse the bandies In boiling water until heated through aud then pull handle and blade apart.  To attach knife handlos till the han  dies  with  equal  parts  of    powdered  resin and silver saml.    Reat lite-end  of tho knife, press it tlrmly into the  handle and coo) in water.  To cleau rusty knives use powdered  bath brick mado into a paste with  uaraffiu anl apply it with a tiann-sl.  Finish off with dry bath brick and a  soft rag, which will leave a splendid  polish.  When surplus i,ilver knives are put  away the blade of each one should be  rubbed thoroughly and carefully with  olive oil. Wrap extra knives, each one  separately, in paper and store them in  as dry a place as possible. Every thre3  months knives not in use should be  taken out and looked at to see if there  be any signr*. of rust. Put fresh oil  on them before; putting them away  again. When the knives are required  for use wash the oil off and rub each  knife with knif? polish.  What French Agriculturists Are Doing  to   Increase  the   Crops  French agriculturists are paying a  g^eat deal of attention at "present to  possible  methods of    cultivation    of  grain crops to increase the yield. Instances have already been worked out  where twenty seeds ot grain yielded  I an increase o" over 700,000 within,a  I period of one year.    The principle is  simple    It consists iu preparing tho  seed    bed in widely spaced lines on  mellow land.    At the    end    of    two  months the tufts springing from each  grain are divided and replanted. Finally oarth is. hoed up about the new  plants in such a manner as to provoke  growth    from all points brought into,  intimate eontae. with the spil. Bach of  these numeroiu shoots bears an 'ear  In reality It is a combination of "slipping," ti-ai-.-_pla-.ting and pruning.  The methods wero practiced by the  Chinese centuries ago, and the principle was*worked out experimentally  in England as oarly as 1776. An Algerian colonist has been planting  wheat and oats in the same fields for  five years without an application of  manure. He makes his fiurrows thirty-  six inches apart and plants the seeds  therein at a distance of twenty incite.!  from each other. He harrows con  stantly. During the five years he has  averaged 1.8<M) pounds of oats per acre  and 1,600 cf wheat, while a neighbor's  yield under ordinary practice has  been a scant'800 pounds of oats and  un  the Advice  of  His  Doctor  7 The* Firs. .Lady:*'of'Rrdricie.-'- . ? _i7:'7;;  The president of the French repub.  lie, MonB.

He   Used   Dr.  Chase's  Ointment   For  Protruding Piles With Splendid  Results  Too often a doctor can only think  of an operation when asked for a  treatment ."or piles. Some are sufficiently broad-minded to use the most  effective tr -atment available, which is  undoubtedly Dr. Chase's Ointment, as  was proven in the case referred to in  this letter.  Mr. Simon E. Jones, Railway street,  Inverness, N.S., writes: "I have found  Dr. Chase'3 Ointment the best treatment obtainable for protruding piles.  For three years I suffered from piles,  and was advised by a local physician  to try Dr. Chase's Ointment. I had  tried many treatments iu vain, and  therefore icnow which is the best. I  can highly recommend Dr. Chase's  Ointment, and you are at liberty to  use this statement."  The record of cures of every form  of piles which stands behind Dr.  Chase's Ointment is the strongest  guarantee you can have that it will  promptly relieve and cure this ailment,  even in. the most aggravated form. 60c  a box, all dealers.

To Tell Fertile Eggs  The simpliest, easiest and surest  way of testing hatching eggs for fertility is to set them in the incubator  or under a hen and allow them to  incubate for seven days, says a contributor to the Farm and Fireside. Then  remove the hen or take the tray out  of the incubator and allow the eggs to  cool for ten minutes. Then hold each  egg to the cheek. The warm eggs are  the fertile eggs and the cold eggs are  those that have no chicks in them.  Eggs that are only slightly warni  have a very weak germ. The longer  the eggs are incubated the easier it is  to pick out eggs that will hatch.  No Asthma Remedy Like it.--Dr. JY  D.

This rule, luwever, is not an arbitrary one, and city regiments or In  other special cases where it has been  deemed desirable to take a larger  number of men, there will be a larger  representation.?-. For instance, - in  Toronto, Winnipeg- and other citie3  where the regiments are almost full  strength, and the numbers volunteering aggregate five or six hundred or  even more per regiment, companies  may go at almost full strength.. As  far as possible each company will take  its own officers.  From Western Canada, where the  conditions of eniictment were to some  extent misunderstood up to a day or  two ago* it ��������� is low announced that  there has been? a regular flood of applications. Thess men, who mainly belong to cavalry regiments, will have  equal opportunity with eastern regiments to go. to the front as infantry  men. Mobilization will start almost  immediately, and every volunteer who  has been accepted, .will be notified by  his commanding officer to report  forthwith at his regimental headquarters.  For those who have failed to secure  places on the fijegt contingent, the consolation is giver, that they will^ probably have an opportunity a little later  to go with a second contingent. Col.  Hughes stated ihat it was practically  certain that a further contingent of  from .five to ten thousand would be  needed in the near future. They will  be required as reserves to make any  deficiencies in^ the first army "division  through illness cr wounds.  \  Applications are still pouringY.n  j. from all parts of Canada as well as  " from the United States. ? Enough applications from the United States have  come in to make up five or six companies. One man telegraphed the  minister that he could .bring 200 men.  Even from tlie pehiteiitiaries men are  writing, stating that their time is nearly eixpired, r.nd that they want to-be  let out in order to fight for the flag.  A considerable number of deserters,  who had tired oi! the monotony of barracks life, are coming back and asking to be taken on again. Col.

As a matter of fact  plans for tlie. protection of all the principal coal deposits on the Pacific, as  well as on .he Atlantic had been prepared In peace time and the necessary  munitions and troops required in the  carrying out of these plans assigned  to their several positions.  So, although pmple protection has  oeen provided foi all the country's important coal deposits, it? has been accomplished exj. editiously and ^quietly  without attracting much attention.  The heaviest and' most modern ordnance in tho country has been posted  in carefully selected positions guarding the various coaling stations and  coal ports and they are in charge of  some of Uie .best artillerymen in the  Canadian rserv.ee. Ample magazines  and ammunition? have been supplied  and forced of infantry detailed to supply the batteries and altogether noth.  ing has been left undone to guard? the  coal depots fro.Ti. attack.  The coastal coal depots, east and  west, have in fr.ct been quietly transferred intc strong defensive positions  armed with powerful guns.

The hay crop is  -light this year,��������� and with the likely  heavy demands for feed from Great  Britain, oats will be at a premium, and  that noxt spring straw maw prove very  valuable for feed for stock. It is sug-  ge-rte-t that ministers of agriculture in  the three western governments get together and publish an order In council  prohibiting the practice .till further or  ders.

Retrenchment by.- cutting down avoidable exepnd:tur. is bound to mark the  trend of business for some time to  come, and it wih greatly lessen the  volume of bus'nessY Such a course,  however, will In-time result in stronger and heal-hie-' conditions, and for  the present the only sure way is to go  slow. The grain trade is one of the  chief trades affected by the war? but  besides the w-U* it is uow well kndwnc  that the world'., grain markets are affected by the short, crop yields this  season. No country except the United  States has produced an extra supply  of Tv'heat this yeai, and some countries  have fallen considerably short of their  usual average. The United States, according to their August crop estimates, have raised 675,000,000 bushels  of winter wheat, and 236,000,000 bushels of spring wheat, together 911,000,-  000 bushel- compared with 763,000,000  bushels, the final estimates of the  total yield in 1913. or 148,000,000 bushels more this year than last. Other coun  tries, such as France, Italy, Russia,  Hungary and Canada are all much  under their average yield, owing to the  unfavorable growing .weather. An estimate of the world's wheat production  this year by a .ending authority makes  the total quantity 3,712,000 bushels,  against 3,956,400 bushels last year,'  which was the largest world's production on record. Thus, shortage in production along v. i.h. the war, is going to  keep prices high for the coming twelve  months at least. During the past  week the.wheat markets in the United  States, and oar Winnipeg market,  have continued to harden and advance  in a remarkable manner considering  the difficulties aud uncertainities surrounding the prospects of immediately  getting any large quantity of wheat  exported fro_-i this continent. Tlie  movement in prices has been accompanied by wide fluctuations, although  without the excitement that pervaded  tlie markets a; yeek ago, because the  demand by clai.r.ng houses for ' not  less than 10c pa: bushel margin on all  trades, keeps down the volume of  speculative business and.that prevents  excitement. The New York market  has been steadier than, any other and  has only advanced 2%c to 2%c. Chicago is up 5>/������c to 6-Vijc, but Minneapolis and Duluth both show an advance  of 12c per bushel, while Winnipeg is  8c to 9c higher. It i3 evident that the  spripg wheat markets are influenced  by the unfavorable reports of spring  wheat shrinkage from heat and  drought. The -writer of these market  letters has for the last two or three  years . frequently drawn attention to  the fact that the world's consumption  of wheat has ."-een keeping full pace  with tlve increase In production, and  this can easily te seen in the fact that  although tlie world's wheat crops in  1912 and 1913 were by a long way the  largest ever produced, there has not  been in th*) past two years any unusual accumulation of visible supplies  anywhere; indeed, at the end of June  last the aggregate world's visible supply was 37,000,000 bushels less'than at  the same date r*n 1913, and it had got  down to the very low aggregate of,  98,000,000 bushels, which is less than  ten days worlri'ti daily requiromont.  This com ini. yoar, therefore, with an  estimated worli's production of about  250,000,000 bushels less than last year,  and the probably calamitous effect on  production in the countries at war and  the extra requirements of these same  countries owing to tho war, it cannot  but bo that prices of wheat will bo  .high, and at times through speculative operations as well ns through sup.  ply and demand, they will bo subject  to unusual advances.

Expert   Discusses.   Possibility  of  Germany Sending Land Forces Across  *-���������'?"���������'      ���������   the   Channel  London.���������Archibald llurd, a naval  expert, writing ior the Daily Telegraph, says:  "Whatever cliange has occurred in  the last few days in the naval and)  military situation, certainly does not  weaken the argvments   as   to the impossibility of an invasion of England.  "An. invasion across the North Sea  must be preceded by a battle in the  North Sea and a German, victory. Only  a sailor can appreciate the obstacles  In the way of such an adventure, carried out in the face of a superior naval  force. It involves the enemy handicapping his fleet with large numbers  of transports crowded with sailors.  "If. small and "of light draught the  transports coii'.d approach fairly close  to the.point of disembarkation but  such small vessels can carry only a  few men. Shoulc, large transports be  employed, ;arge numbers of troops  can he carried, but these vessels must  keep well off shore during the process  of disembarkation, owing to the depth  of water they would draw.  "With every port on the TEnglish  coasts guarded by land and sea, it is  difficult to perceive what object could  be served by landing a few thousand  German troops in a country which has  over a .million men under arms.  "Such an adventure would not  cause more thau a temporary panic in  the district directly affected and this  speedily would give place to a feeling  of confidence that in a very short time  the invaders .vould be shot down or  captured.  "Nevertheless,   it   is   possible   that  Text of the Lesson, Matt, xxii, 1-14.  Memory Ver--e&. 8, 9���������Golden Text,  Luke xiii, .34���������Commentary Prepared by Rev. D. M. Stearns.  This parable of the marriage of tha  king's son is found only in the gospel  by Matthew and sets before us both  the present phase of a rejection of the  invitation and also a glimpse of the  consummation; but briefly the former,  Miss Habershon says in her book on  the parables that they cover the whole  period from the first advent of our  I_ord ��������� jegifS Christ in incarnation id  His second advent In glory. His incarnation is m.pl_cd; His life,*ministry  and rejection -.--.re described, and His  death is prophesied, but most of the  pictures represent the time of His absence or the epoch of His return. They,  were not merely the words of the man  Christ Jesus, _> great teacher and a  God sent prophet. They were, like all  that He sa.d, the words of His Father given Kim to speak, for. He saiO,  "Whatsoever I speak, therefore, even  as the Father said unto me, so I  speak" (John xii, 50). He taught also  "through the Holy Spirit" .Acts i, 2;  x, 38), so.'Jiat in all His teaching we  have the Trinity, even as in the parable of Luke xv we see the love of the  Son, the Spirit and the Father. ���������  Some aspects of the lesson today,  such as the treatment, of the invitations, are similar to those of the great  supper of Luke xiv, 16-24. The king  and His son and the servants are suggestive of the Father, the Son and the  Holy Spirit. The words "Behold, 1  have prepared * '���������*.'.*��������� and all things  are ready/' of verse 4 indicate that  "salvation is.of the Lord" (Jonah ii,  ._*)-, from first-to last, just as in Gen.  iii, 21, the Lord God provided redemption clothing without any help from  Adam and-Eve. as neither Noah nor  Moses nor David nor Solomon had any  say. whatever in the design,, or construction cf ark or tabernacle or  temple, as the disciples helped nothing in providing the food for the five  thousand, so that purpose and the  working'of it out in the whole matter are Wholly of God. Nothing can be  added to the full preparation which  He has made. See also Isa. lix, 16. It  is ours to heed the invitation, "Come  unto the marriage" (verse 4), and to  accept thankfully all that- the kins  has so bountifully provided. The  abundance of the King's table whicli  we are privileged continually to enjoy,  will fill us with joy and peace if we  are only believing (II Sam, ix, 13;  Rom. xv, 13}.  .  ���������The story of a marriage takes us  back to Gen. ii, 22-24, and on to the  marriage of the Lamb (Rev. xix, 7, 8),  the former in Eden being a type of the  cause many Germans believe that if  one or more of them were successfully  carried out am. troops landed en the  British coast i- feeling of panic  would be thereby created in this country, which woulc. have au appreciable  effect both here and on the continent."  TO BE PATRIOTIC FUND  Dependents of Those Canadians at  War Will be Provided For  Ottawa.���������The complaint having beon  made that" at Montreal and other  points ^nany men eager to enlist have  not done so because of lack of information as to what to be done for those  dependent upon them, tho militia department desiros to repeat the assurance given a few clays ago that the  families of those who volunteered will  bo woll looked after.

The  ^, _.,...������        _.-.._        _.._. ..   bri<jes of Scripture are most sugges  tive also, as Rebekah, Rachel, Asen-  ath, Zippor-Uh, Ruth and Abigail. The  story of Rebekah, being obtained by,  the servant fer the only son of his?  master, who had given all his wealth"*  to?Isaac is wonderfully suggestive. The  question put to her, "Wilt thou go  with this man?" (Gen. xxiv, 58), is  like the "Come" of our lesson, and all  the other 'comes," such as Gen. vii,  1; Isa. i, 18; lv, 1;; MaCtYxi, 28; Rev.  xxii, 17. We do not read of any* or  these disdaining the invitation or making any excuses nor of their being  sorry that they accepted. Contrast the  conduct of those in our lesson who  were invited: "They would not come  * * * They made light of it and  went thoir ways. * * * They took  his servants aud entreated them spitefully and slew them" (verses 3, 5, 6).  What Ignorance what blindness! How  often we are reminded of the pathetic  words in John I, 10, 11: "He was in  the world and the world was made by,  Iilm, and tho world knew Him not. He  came unto His own, and His own received Him not." It seems almost unbelievable that men should despise  or make light oi the love and grace  of God and the offer of His kingdom  and glory, but tho wicked adversary,  the god of this world, is always doing  his utmost to blind people's minds,  lest the light of the glorious gospel ot  Christ, who io tho Imago of God,  should shino unto thom (II Cor. iv, 4).  The carnal mind Is also enmity against  God (Horn. viii. 7), and none but tho  Holy Spirit can break it down and  convince of sin."  The burning up of tho city (verso 7),  may refer to Itti destruction by Nobu-  cliadnos.-.ar at the tlmo of tho captivity in Babylon or tho destruction by  Tltuo some forty years after tho tlmo  ol our lesson���������probably tho latter.  The highway message may cover tho  whole of thia age, whon from all thu  world the guests aro being gathered  for the marriage of tho Lamb.  The had and j^ood remind us of tho  net of Matt. xlH, 47-50, and the ond of  the ago, whon thoro ahnll bo tho separation.
