PLACE. On lha way from the Sea of
Galilee to C'eaarea, Phillppl, a city alluated
24 or M mllea northeast of lha Sea of liab
L Christ and Ilia Cross, and His Vic
tory. Vs. 21-23. "From that time
forth be pan Jesus to shew unto His
1 disciples, how that He must pi unto
Tsrusalem, and suffer many things of
the elders and chief priests nnd scribes,
and be killed, and be raised again the
third day." The fact of the resurrec
tion is stated in each of the three no
counts, and is emphasized for the sake
of the faith and hope of the diaciples.
The announcement of Jesus' death so
shocked and astouishvd 1'cter that he
i did not notice the promised resurrec-
I Hon, or thought of it as some figure
i of speech. So Peter began (notice he
! only "began") to rebuke Jckus: 'Re it
I far from Thee, Lord; this shall not be
j unto Thee." The plan of redemption
, outlined by Jesus wos so contrary to
I all l'etcr's expectations and hopes, so
j completely opposite to his picture of the
Messiah cm a glorious triumphant king,
, that Jesus' saying was inconceivable
to l'eter. It wus absurd, ruinous, a
death blow to their own hopes, and a
triumph to their enemies.
Itut Jesus turned and said unto l'eter,
"Get thee behind me, Satan:" lie did
not cull His apostle a sutun, a devil, but
he looked for the moment through
Peter, und raw behind him His old
enemy, cunningly making use of the
prejudices and impulsive honesty of the
undeveloped apostle. In this sugges
tion, that He might guin the crown
without the cross, and attain a king
dom of this world, the Christ saw the
recurrence of the temptation which hud
i offered Him the glory of those kiug
I doms, on condition of His druwing back
from the path which the Futhrr had
appointed for Him (Matt. 4:1-11).
i "Thou urt an offense:" A stuinbling-
I block instead of a foundation stone;
hinilnuice by placing the temptation be
fore me. by your blindness in not un
derstanding tin; true nature und work of
the Messiah. "Thou suvorest not (mind-
est not) the things that be of (iod:"
Uod's plan of salvation and work of
the Messiah, as just before rcvculed by
Jesus (v. 21). "Hut those thut be of
men:" The natural, human view of the
Messiuh, u worldly kingdom, riches,
honor, glory and triumph.
II. The Disciples and Their Cross, und
Their Victory. Vs. 24-20. These verses
contuinan often-quoted saying of Jesus.
It is u very terse utterance and means
no more and no less than anyone can
read upon the surface, but perhaps it
iuuy be set forth u little more ut length
and better impressed on the mind and
heart by a puruphrase. "Then said
Jesus unto His Disciples, If uny inuu
will (would, wishes to) come after me
(be my follower, my disciple, seek to
uttain to my character nnd rewurd), let
him deny himself (renounce self as mus
ter, und uccept me as muster), and take
up his cross (daily nnd voluntarily, not
merely endure wlint is laid upon him,
for the cross is the symbol of doing u
duty c.t B.nycost even ut the cost of
the most painful death), and follow
me (take me for muster, teacher, ex
uniple, believe my teaching, uphold my
cause, obey my precepts, und lo do this
though it lead by the way of the cross),
l'or whosoever will save his life (by do
ing wrong, by avoiding hard duties and
self-denial, by gaining worldly good at
thq expense of religion nnd righteous
ness) shall lose it (that is, his life, his
soul, the man himself und his eternal
blessednes?) j and whosoever will (wills
to) lose his life (by giving up those out
ward things which are desirable und ,
blessed in themselves, which worldly
men seek chiefly, und which seem to
make the life on curth happy und worth
living honors, riches, pleasure, power)
for my sake (multitudes of people lose
their lives for gnin, for pleasure, for
fashion, and eneh of these has more
martyrs than my cross ever required;
but the mere Ions of life has no prom
ised blessing it is only loss incurred
for love of me, for the sake of preach
ing and advancing the Gospel who
soever does this) shall save it" shall
have a blessed ness and glory eternal;
the loss is small, the guin infinite; the
loss is of out ward things, the gain Is
the soul itself. "For (nnd this is the
cliliching argument) what is a man
profited if he shall gain the whole world
ind lose his own soul? or what shall a
man give in exchange for his soul?"
III. Christ Coming in His Kingdom,
Vs. 27-28. Then Jesus turned to the
other side of the picture. The time is
coming. He tells His disciples, when all
these days of humiliation and the eross
will pass nwny, and Jesus shall bea tri
umphant king. He shall conquer death
by the resurrection. The kingdom
which seemed so feeble then Rhall rule
over the whole earth.
"Tor the Son of Mnn shall come in
the glory of ITis Father with His an
gels; and then He shall reward every
man according to his works." For n
man's works are the index nnd proof of
his character. And, more than that,
Jesus assures the disciples there are
some standing here which shall pot
taste of death till they see the Son of
Man coming in His kingdom.

MY MURDERER, j
NKLL1K hud a fancy for some fresh
eggs for supper thut evening, and
us she seemed disinclined to venture
out, 1 offered to go for them. We were
all alone in the house, for father and
mother hud gone to the country for
a lew days, und Tom, of course, was
away ut the ofliee.
When 1 opened the door to go out 1
found Ah Sin, our Chinese washer
man, standing on the door mat. He
could speak uo Knglish, so 1 did not
waste uny words on him, but just mo
tioned him to go upstairs; he would
find Nellie there, I thought, und she
could give liim the clothes. 1 did not
wunt the bother of going buck. 1 did
not call out to tcl Nellie he was going
up; 1 did not think it necessary,
1 must have been gone about three
quarters of an hour, for the little dairy
where we got the fresh eggs was four
long blocks uuny, und 1 stayed awhile
talking to the young girl who waited
on "ie. It wus getting dusk when 1
reached our door, and 1 remember be
ing surprised when 1 looked tip ut the
transom to see thut the hull lump was
unllghtcd Nellie had such u horror of
darkness. 1 was even more surprised
' when 1 opened the door to see Ah Sin
i disappear down the passage und enter
the kitchen the kitchen, dining-room
t and Tom's room are the only rooms
j on the first floor. Did I only imagine
it, or was there something furtive in
I the Mongolian's movements?
1 "I'.ah, how fanciful 1 um getting," 1
thought. "Nellie hits told him to go in
I there to get the soiled kitchen towels."
1 lighted the hull lump, left the eggs
on the table und ran tip the stiiii's.
When I reached the landing 1 saw
something w hich made me so fui-.'.t that
I hud to lean against the banister for
So that you will quite understand the
position in which I found myself, I will
describe our tipper hull and the situa
tion of the rooms. Directly opposite
the landing was a window overlooking
the buck yurd; the bedroom Nellie and
I occupied together was ou the left
side, the door opening near the head
of the stairs; mother's room and the
parlor were in the front, n passage
leading to them from the head of the
stairs. The hull was floored with white
marble a curious fancy of my fathers.
! Id front of each door was a thick
woolly red mat. Now, all the rooms
were closed, and trickling from under
the doors of our room wus a thin red
stream, which formed a great pool, and
which, though it had seemed bo dark
downstairs, was here quite discernible
in the half light which came from the
In n Hash I saw it all. The Chinaman
had killed my sister; it was her life
blood which trickled from the door und
lay in that ghastly pool on the white
marble. I gathered my skirts to step
over it nnd enter our room and verify
my awful fears, when 1 heard a
stealthy, muffled footfall on the stairs.
In the horror of my discovery 1 had
forgotten that the Chinaman was still
tn the house. In a moment he would
be upon me, and 1 would share the
terrible fate of my sister, who must
be dead, for who could lose all that
blood und live? Being sure, then, that
she was beyond my aid, I felt that I
must try, if possible, to save my own
life. But how? Outside of the hall
window wus a wide stone shelf on which
we kept pot plants; near it was a sta
tionary ladder which the workmen used
to ascend when the roof needed re
pairing. I sprang lightly over the horrible
pool, ran noiselessly across the hall;
and was on the window sill getting
out when the Mongolian's head, ap
peared above the stairs. He taw me,
altered an Inarticulate, guttural sound,
and swiftly followed me. 1 made a
spring, reached the ladder and climbed
to the roof. I would not descend to
the yard the chances of escape were
leas that way. for the wooden fence
round the yard was very high, and
oa the houses on either side were on
occupied It would be quite possible for
me to be murdered without any neigh
bors bearing my cries. If once I could
reach the flat roof of our house I
thought I would be safe, for the roofs
of the bouses in our block were as
well known to me as the street. I
was something of a tomboy, and ou
evenings when the cats made the night
air hideous with their concerts, Tom
and 1 used often to go on the roofs and
hunt them, sometimes chasing them
the whole block, be clad in his pajamas
and 1 in my cycling suit.
It was therefore an easy matter for
me to climb the ladder, but just as I
had crossed the roof and was about
to drop myself on the next, which was
lower than ours, the dreaded celestial
head aguin appeared, this time just
above the last rung of the Indderj Oh,
if only I had the power to hurl him
down before he reached the roof. I
tore at the bricks in the chimney, but
not one would loosen. There was noth
ing to be done but to run and to scream
in the hope of attracting the attention
of some passer-by on the street be
low, but when I opened my mouth to
cry out no sound would come from my
parched throat. My gymnastic train
ing stood me in good stead. I
ran, dropped to the lower roofs,
climbed to the higher ones with
the ii -ility of a monkey. But still I
would have had no advantage over my
pursuer hud it not been for my superior
knowledge of the roofs. The Chinaman
followed me swiftly. Though I dured
not look back, I could hear Ills quick
breathing not far behind.
Yhen we got near the end of the
block I dodged my pursuer nnd doubled
on my tracks. For a moment he seemed
puzzled; I seized the opportunity,
ulipped quickly behind him, grasped his
pigtail, jerked him backward; he lost
his balunce and fell on his back. Then
I ran to the edge of the roof overlook
ing the street and screamed; to my sur
prise, my voice had come back and my
scream was heard by a man passing on
the opposite side of the street. He
stopped nnd looked around bewildered.
I screamed again, nnd, guided by the
sound, he looked up nnd saw me; the
moon was just rising behind the house,
and my form was clearly outlined
ngninst the light the moon threw before
it. But my shouting hnd also shown the
Chinaman my whereabouts; be hnd re
coverd himself nnd was ngnln after me.
I could hear his quick, animal punting
just behind nie. I ran on, he following,
but hope now gave added speed to my
st"ps; help would soon be mine; for
n crowd hnd gathered on the street,
nnd seemed cleurly to realize my dan
ger. Men ran to and fro, or eagerly con
sulted together, nnd presently n num
ber of workmen came along draggingn
fireman's ladder. This they placed
ngninst one of the houses; men
swarmed tip like flies, and in less time
than it takes me to tell it the Chinaman
was secured strangely enough, he
made no resistance nnd did not appear
to be armed and we were both taken
When the crowd henrd what the Mon
golian had done, they declared they
would lynch him then nnd there. They
tore him from the policeman who Iind
Mm in charge, dragged him to the near
est tree, which was not fur, for our
street was planted with trees; n rope
wns brought from somewhere, und, de
spite the wretched man's pleadings In
Impassioned Chinese for mercy, wns
slipped around the branches. At Hint
moment n broad-shouldered man broke
through the crowd und demnndetl the
cause of the1 uproar. It was Tom. The
mob paused to expluin. I ran to my
brother, clung to his arm, and between
my incoherent words and their expla
nations, he at last gathered the mean- j
Ing we wished to convey, but still he
"Nellie? Did I understand you to say,
Dora, that It wns Nellie this mnn mur
"Why, I have come straight from the
house, and Nellie wns there ns well as
she ever was in her life, only anxious
nt your long absence and curious to
know the cause of the disturbance in
"There must be some mistnke," I an
swered. "I saw her blood streaming
from under our bedroom door. Per
haps it wns her spirit yon saw."
"A pretty substantial spirit, then, I
must say, nnd one that can enjoy mut
ton chops nnd fresh eggs as well as a
mortal. Come right along, boys," turn
ing to the crowd, "and seo for your
selves that my sister is all right. Come,
He drew my arm within bis own nnd
turned toward home, the mob follow
ing 'with the Chlnarann, the rope still
around bis neck. When we reached
our bouse there was Nellie safe and
sound standing on the steps. Before
wo could say a word she cried out:
"What are they doing to Ah Sin ? Oh,
what a shame to treat a poor Chinnman
so!" and impulsively she ran down,
and, while the Mongolian made voluble
explanation, pulled the rope from his
"Speak a little slower, Ah Sin, then I
shall be able to follow you nicely," said
Nellie, kindly. I forgot to tell you that
Vellie can speak Chinese she used to
tench in the Chinese mission school.
"What does he say?" I asked. And,
"Tell ns what the heathen is saying,
young lady," cried the men.
Nellie asked the Chinaman a few
questions, which he answered with
much gesticulation, for he was more
exoited than I have seen a Chinaman
cither before or since, as well he might
be; then she turned to us:
"I think I can explain Ah Sin's part
In this adventure. When he brought
the clothes thj afternoon I found some
War ousting. I sent him back to get
them, telling him I would not pay for
the washing until he brought every
thing. De went away and came back
with the missing clothes In about hall
tn hour. I then paid him and sent him,
iown to the kitchen for some things for
the wash I bad left there. He got them
and was about to go out when be re
membered that he had not asked me
when he was to call again. Just as he
reached the head of the stairs he saw
Dora getting out of the window, jumped
to the conclusion that she was a thief,
end followed her. 1 must tell you."
addressing the crowd, "that he does not
know Dora; she is usually away at
work when becomes for the clothes.
"It just happened that she got off
early to-day. and be snw her for the
first time this afternoon when she let
him in, ao bis mistake wan not an un
natural one.. He did not dream Hint a
young lady of the house would do such
a thing as climb out of u window,
though if he knew Dora he would not
be In the least surprised." Ilere Nellie
laughed. "That is Ah Sin's story, and
It seems to me a reasonable one. Of
course, when he followed Dora she
thought he meant to kill her, but I
rnnnot understand what she wanted on
the roof at that hour. What wns It.
Then I explained, telling her about
the pool of blood, which I was now be
ginning to think existed only in my Im
agination. "Oh. that!" nnd an annoyed. er
turbed expression crossed her face.
"You recollect the qnnrt bottle of red
Ink father brought home the even
ing before he went to the country, and
which Tom wns to take down to the
office? ne forgot It every dny. nnd you.
Dora, took it into our room the dny you
needed some: you carelessly left It near
the door, nnd when I went In to get the
money for Ah Sin 1 must have knocked
It over with my skirt. I did not notice U
nt the time, but when I went into our
room Inter on 1 found the bottle lying
on Its side, the cork out nnd that grent
pool In the hall. Oh." ngnin directly
addressing the crowd, "if there Is any
one here who enn tell how to get red
Ink stains out of white marble I shull be
no grateful. My father will be crnzy If
he comes bnck and finds the h!'. floor
A janitor of one of the 'nrg city
buildings came forward, nnd the two
heldxn conversation. When Uthought
they hnd talked long enough I inter
rupted them to ask Nellie:
"now was It you did not hear me
when I enme upstairs?"
"I wns In the front pnrlor. rending.
When Ah Sin left me I did not hears
sound until Tom came home."
"Well, T guess everything Is clear
now," remarked Tom. "There is noth
ing to be done but thnnk these gentle
men for their promptitude in coming
to Dorn's assistance nnd to soothe the
Chtnnmnn's wounded feelings."
With that he slipped something Into
Ah Sin's hand which made the Celestial
smile. Then Nellie nnd I handed in our
little contributions, and Ah Sin and my
But unfortunntely that was by no
means the end of it. T hnd to face the

What the woman meant, put into the
fewest plain words, was this: "Is there
a parcel to go to the laundry?" The
phrase was pure American, und was
used by a native of our great nnd glo
rious country. Among some of the peo
ple the word "laundry" means not mere
ly the place where washing is done, but
the articles washed, taken collectively.
Not long ago the listener saw in the win
dow of a man's furnishing store beg
pardon; a gent's furnishing store a
placard which read: "Don't forget to
leave your laundry 1"
This perversion of the ancient word
"lavendery" takes a curiously different
turn from Sir Hugh Evans' use of the
word in "The Merry Wives Of Windsor:"
"There dwells one Mistress Quickly,
which is in the manner of bis nurse, or
his dry-nurse, or his cook, or his laun
dry, his washer, nnd his wringer."
And it somehow seems less absurd (o
call on animated washer and wringer

rible, and we're all ready to die of morti
fication. Just think, my own sister, the
wife of a mere nobody never belonged
to our set at all. She eloped with him
lust night, leaving a note saying that
before morning she would be the wife
of one she loved better than life itself.

title, but he is rich; and as soon as 1 can
conquer my aversion to the old fool, I'm
going to marry him." N. Y. Weekly.
