ent. The services will consist ot spe
cial music by the choir, sermon by the
pastor on "qhrlst at Home," reception
of new members and communion. Dr.
Pierce has Issued n pastoral letter to
the members nnd a large attendance la
expected. While It Is understood that
nil members of a church are supposed
to 'bo always In attendance nt the

to appoint special days throughout the

reach many who nro often unavoidably
detained or who are frequently absent
from the regular services of the church.
Mnny churches should frequently ap
point "family day" services.

LESSON iX-Paul at Lystra. Ac. 11:8
19. Golden Text "Thou therefore rmluro
hardness as a good soldier of Jesus
Christ." 11 Ti. 2:3.
Tho peoplo of Lystra wanted to wor
ship Paul and Barnabas because ot the
work thoy had wrought In the nnme of
Christ. While they wore preaching In this
city thoy beheld a poor "cripple" In the
congregation, and Paul, seeing that faith
In Jesus was springing up In Ills heart,
commanded the deformed 0110 to stand
upon his l'uct.
A marvelous cure was wrought and the
miracle of healing created a profound Im
pression. The heathon peoplo at onco pro
claimed that the npostles were gods, and
sought to"worshlp them. But they re
strained tho multitude and pointed tho
misguided, ones to Jesus, in whoso no mo
and power tho hcullng was done.
Tho blackboard sketch today has a dou
ble lesson. First, it is Paul's testimony
to tho peoplo of Lystra, that their help
and salvation Is to be found not in tho
mystical gods, nor In the power of man,
but in Jesus Christ alone, The second
lesson Is for tho disciples: soon after tho
miracle was wrought tho people turned
away from Paul and Barnabas, and thoy
woro stoned, But tho samo Christ who
had been preached as a Saviour from fcln.
was u Comfort and Help and Shield to His
own children In the hour of their por.se
cutlon and trial.

The simpler method, ot serving tho

The cako batter mado sweet nnd
tender and filled and crowned with

charm of tho old New England straw
berry shortcake, when tlio berries
were mashed and sweetened, thus fur
nishing their own rich sauce.
When tho cakes baked in layer tins
come from the oven they are buttered
and covered with tho berries or split,
the fruit plied on the cut side of each,
and one piled above the other. The
biscuit crust calls for four cups ot
sifted flour, ono leaspoonful of salt,
three teaspoonsfuls of baking powder,
ono tablespoouful lard nnd butter
mixed, and Mifllclcnt sweet milk or
water to mnlto a. dough. Roll Into
Lycaonln, and visited Its chief city and
capital, Iconlimi. (Verso 1.) There, ho
spoke in tho synagogue, and many be
lieved. But certain Jews who rejected the
message prejudiced many, against the
gospel. Hence, there was a division and
strife In the city, some holding with tho
Jews, and some with tho apostles. An
attempt to mob them led Paul and Bar
nabas to leave tho city and retire to Lys
tra, a smaller town not far distant,
where they preached. One day, whllo
Paul was speaking, an Impotent man in
tho audience manifested great Interest,
and Paul observing his steady attention
nnd his evident faith, directed him to
stand upon his feet. Immediately the
man was cured, and ho leaped and
walked In sight of all.
DEFYING. Tho province ot Lycaonla
was the scene of more than one legend
ary Epiphany which the Roman poets
had given to the world of letters. Ono
of the most celebrnted of these, recorded
in tho beautiful tale of Philemon and
Bouses, was snld to hove occurred In
that Immediate neighborhood. Unsophls
tocated by tho prevailing infidelity, the
peoplo who had witnessed this wonderful
miracle supposed that they wero oncd
more favored by a visit from the old
gods. (Verse xlO In conformity with the
popular tradition they cried out: "Tho
gods aro como clown in tho likeness of
men." This they said In their own lan
guage which tho apostles did not un
derstand. The words wero taken up and
repeated until the wholo town heard the
announcement, and crowds with mingled
astonishment und"" delight filled tho
NAMING Convinced that the apostles
were gods in human form, the people dis
tinguished them from the multitudes of
deities nnd gavo them names. (Verse
xll.) As Barnubas was older and probab
ly more dignified, thoy called him Jupi
ter, taking jilm for tho supremo divinity,
whose Greek mime was 55eus. (Seo Thu
cyd, 111, 14.) This namo signified descend
er, and It was claimed that Jupiter had
often been Incarnated. As Paul had been
the spokesman, nnd ns his bodily pres
ence was Inferior to that of his ussocinte
(II Corinthians, x, 1), ho was named
Mercurlus The peoplo wero probably led
to this procedure by tho traditloif that
these gods had onco traveled In disguise
omong them (Seo Ovid, Met., villi till),
u wakening an expectation thut they
SACRIFlClNa.-Tho shouting of the
people soon reached th ears of the
priest of Jupiter, Procuring bulls and
garlands he proceeded to tho temple,
which stood before the gate of tho town,
nnd accompanied by a festive crowd, pro
pared tn offjr saerll'uo hi honor of tha
two gods who had entered tho r-tty.
(Verse 13.) In theso days heathen sacri
fices wero universal. It Is difficult, how
over to reduce to any single theories of
the various Ideas Involved therein. Often
they wero looked upon.ns a ,-jlft of tri
bute to the godj. un I Idea that runs
through nil Greek lltcj-ature, from the
simple conception In Hluner to the. carl,
catures of Aristophanes or Luclau. They
were used as prayers to obtain benefits
or to avert wrath upon tho assumption
lhat by them favor could bo purchased
for tho wicked, or envy averted from the
prosperous. On the other hand they were
regarded as thank offerings and the
feasting on the flesh as pnrtuklng of the
tnblo of tho gods. (I Corinthians, x, 20-21)
Nor was tho higher Idea of self-devotion
of tho offerer wholly lost. (See Bampnton
RESTRAINING.-When Paul and Bar
nabas heard what was being done they
wero horrlfled. Rending' their garments
In token of distress, they ran among the
people, seoklng to restrain them. (Verses
14 to 18.) This thoy did by appealing to
them, a difficult tusk because of the dlff.

When a young fruit or shade tree
stops growing and looks ns If It were
about to Kivo up tho struggln for ex

traced to Its being bark bound. In
this com; il long perpendicular slit in
the bark will allow It to resume Its
erenco df language. Tho address on that
occasion was a forceful plea, against su
perstition and Idolatry. They declared
themselves to ho but men, preachers
sent out to turn tho peoplo from tho van
ities of heathenism to the service of the
true God, whom they represented as tho
creator of all things. (Genesis I, 1.) This
tholstlo doctrine, the fundamental prlncl
pnle of Jutulaism, distinguishing It from
all other religions, was boldly proclaimed
In opposition to the views of tho deity
held by the people. This living God,
moreover, they announced as benevolent,
bestowing all manner of blessings on his
creatures, making himself known by his
works. (Romans I, 20.) Tho address was
well adapted to these deluded people, und
produced the desired result, although
somo wero reluctant to abandon their
STONING Tho Lystrenians did not
like to bo thwarted In their plans and
prevented from their holiday banquet.
Those who had been prominent In pro
claiming tho advent of Zeus and Hermes
were probably not a little ashamed. In
the sulky revulsion of their feelings, and
with a somewhat uneasy sense that they
had made themselves ridiculous, they
wero Inclined to avenge their error on
those who had Innocently caused It." Tho
case was mado worse by the arrival of
certain Jews from Antioch nnd Iconl
um with the express purpose of arraying
tho populaco against the preachers. A
tumult was easily raised. (Verse 19.)
Paul was stoned, and when they thought,
ho was dead they dragged him In front
of the very temple to which they had
proposed to conduct him. This con
duct was by no means surprising. If
tho two strangers were not gods It was
but. natural to believe that thoy wero dls
picable pretenders. If their mlrnclc was
not a sign of divinity it might b o as
signed to the malefic arts.
REVIVING. It appeared that Paul
had not labored altogether In vain In Lys
tra. Somo hud believed in Christ through
his preaching. One of 'tho converts made
on thut occasion was a young man, who
afterward becume a traveling companion
with the apostlo (Acts, xvl, 1), and who
shared tho closing hours of his life (If
Timothy, Iv. 21), as tho Scripture inti
mates and church history declares. These
new mado disciples wero gutherlng about
tho body of tho apostle as It lay on the
ground (Verso xx). when Paul revived,
It, for ho was not dead. His enemies hav
ing departed, ho oroso and returned to
the city. During the remainder of that
day and evening and until tho next day
they remained, offering such comfort as
possible, nnd gathering up their strength
for further servloo for Christ, Paul was
learning what tho Muster meant at the
beginning of his career. (Acts, lx, 10.)
PREACHING.-Peisecutlon did not dl
mintsh tlio ardor of the apostles. Called
with a high and holy calling, sustulncd
by a living futth, they, wero ready, If
need be, Jo die for tho Lord Jesus, (Acts
XX, 21.) Assured of the nbldlng presenco
and perpetunl support of Him whom (hey
served (Roman vill, 35), they followed
Ills counsel, passing from city to city
with tlio good word of life. (Mutt., x, 23),
Our text Informs us that Paul and Bar
nabas departed next day to Derbe to
preach, that uftorwaril thoy returned to
Lystra, to Iconiuni, and to Antioch In
Plsldlu, (Verso xxl). Everywhere It was
gospel thut thoy preached, to win men to
Jesus. But they were careful also to in.'
struct and comfort the new disciples
(verso xxll), who greatly needed comfort,
Tlio persecution would naturally alarm
them, and they werothercforo mudo to
know thut tribulation was a means of
grace (II Timothy, III. 12). It was. no life
of case, but ono of sutferlng that ho por
trayed. (Romans vill, 17.)

the Holy Spirit to dwell rather on the
cruelty, the enmity of the Jews, and the
