THE RISE AND FALL
OF A CHICAGO SPORT
Chicago is no better and no worse
than an other large city. In fact, if
one were to take
size into considera
tion, Chi ca(n
would not be found
to be much worse
than the major
ity of the village!
throughout the en
tire country. The

the wickedness of Chicago."
Harry is a H-year-old son whose life
has been spent in a village in New York
state. He missed seeing the sights of
a great city because his parents were
afraid of exposing him to the contam
inating influence of the t-rty's wicked
ness. The sights he would have seen
on every corner; the wickedness he
would have had to search for. But the
incident illustrates the character of
Chicago's reputation, whether.it Is de

sport is born, are numerous. This shall
be the true story of but one incident
that will illustrate but one way.
At the time our story opens, as th
fiction writers would say, our hero, il
such lie may be called, was but 11
years of age. In fact, our story deals
with but five years of his life, from
17 to 22, but in that five years lie lived
This young man was the son of mod
erately well-to-do parents. The father
was working on a salary for a large con
cern in Chicago, but they had never
known the pinch of poverty. At 17
the son had secured the best schooling
the public schools of Chicago could
give him. Be had learned something of
the .hree K's and had dabbled in the
fads, and when graduation day in the
high school came he felt that he was
equipped for bis life struggle.
So much for bis education. Morally
he was an exemplary young man. Not
of the extremely good kind, but good
enough so that no one need have been
ashamed to associate with him. Be
took an interest in church work in the
suburban town in which he lived,
though he was not a church member.
And then at 17 he stepped out of school
into the counting room of a big grain
commission- company and begun bis

The employer of this young man
lived in the same suburban town, and

stakes with con-

the same car, that
he might, when oc-

Before the first month had passed be
had lost his interest in his employer,
but continued to ride in the smoker,
that be might enjoy the fumes from
an after-breakfast cigarette and watch
the card game. When the employer no
ticed tbe cigarette, he advised the
young man to throw it away and ac
cept a cigar which he offered. Tbe
young man accepted tbe advice and
the cigar. The employer also called his
attention to a few good hand which be
held, and the young man showed the

permitted a friendly familiarity on the
part of the young man with his em
ployer at the oflice, and he talked glib
ly of "full houses, three of a kind,
tluslits, jack pots," and other terms
iignlflctnt of poker, and his fellow em
ployes envied his opportunities.

confidence in the judgment of his em

His accounts were $5,000 short; $5,000
of hi employer's money was the price
he had paid for becoming entrapped
in the nets of crime. Another thou

days more, and with it he bought
margins on wheat for a rise.

was brought to view.
That day it lacked but six weeks of
being five years from the day when he
had first ridden to the city in the
smoking car with his employer and
witnessed a game of cards for money.
At the end of that six weeks the

NOTES AND COMMENTS,
This lussou takes us to khe close of
Jesus' lirst year of public ministry, De
cember, A. D. 37. This marks the close
of that period known as the Jltdean
ministry. For convenience we "ill fol

the following outline:

Introductory. All through the early
ministry of Jesus thus fur John the
itajitist had been preaching and baptiz
ing in Judea. Jesus' preaching attract
ed large crowds. John observed this,
and said: "He must increase, but I must
decrease." It wus a noble self-renuncl-ution
on the part of John that lie could
see that it was his measure of success
that he could have helped attract the
people to Jesus, while his own follow
ing wus fuiluig oh. Hut it opened up a
situation of which the pharisces (ni
ways bitter) were not slow in tuking
advantage. They tried to awaken jeal
ousy and conflict between thedlsciplei
of John and those of Jesus. John's
work, however, was not yet done, so
Jesus, with a practical w isdom disciples
of our later day would do well to study
nnd imitate depart! from Judea and
turns toward Galilee,
Jesus and the Samaritan Woman.
Travellr g through Samaria Jesus came
to Jacob's well just without the city of
Sychnr. Here He stopped to rest, send
ing nis disciples on into the city to huy
food. While they were gone there came
a woman to draw water from the well.
The request of Jesus for a drink sur
prised the woman. A strict Jew would
not have asked any favor of n Samnrl
'.cn. Much less would a strict Jew have
mude such a request the way for open
ing a conversation. Undoubtedly Jesus
was tired und thirsty, yet we may Im
agine that He used just this opportun
ity in just this way for winning the
woman's heart. "How is it," she said,
"that thou, being a Jew, askest drink
of me, which am a woman of Samaria?"
The Water of Life. The question not
only showed the woman's surprise, but
indicated a willingness to talk with the
stranger. So Jesus followed up His ad
vantage, and said: "if thou knewest
the gift of God, nnd w ho it is that salth
to thee, (Jive me to drink; thou WOUld
est have asked of Him, and He would
have given thee living water." That ex
pression, "(lift of God," is very signili
cr.nt, meaning theMessiah orC'nrist and
His salvation. Hut the Samaritan wom
an did not realize this hidden signifi
cance any more than she did the double
meat. ing Jesus put into those words
"living water." She only thought of
the water that is necessary to sustain
"Sir," she exclaimed, "thou hast noth
ing to draw with, and the well is deep."
Jtsus had to open to her mind His real
and hidden meaning. "The water that
I shall give him," lie said in reply,
"shall be in bim a well of water spring
ing up into everlasting life."
Jesus Reads the Woman's Heart.
Jesus would not have completed His
mission to this woman had He stopped
with this truth. He must convince her
of her sinfulness; show her the need of
a change of heart. This He did by the
very gentle reminder of her past life,
M s, and even of her present living in
True Worship. Naturally now came
the idea of worship; but where? In
the holy mount of the Samaritan, or at
Jerusalem? Jesus showed her that the
infinite God is not confined by place or
circumstance. "God is a Spirit; and
they that worship Him must worship
Him in spirit and, in truth."
Jesus the Messiah. This Samaritan
woman had heard of the Messiah, and
after what Jesus hod said, it took only
His "I am He" to send her back to tbe
city to there proclaim the man "who
told me all things that ever I did."
The food of the body will not fed
the life of the soul.
Jesus offers tbe water of life to the
sin-stained, thirsty soul.
A chance meeting by the well yet
only God knows how much of chance it
was. In tbe providence of God the next
one we meet will be one from whom we
may learn or one whom we may help.
Prejudice should never stand In the
way either of giving or receiving help.
Holy mounts count not so-much with
Bod aa holy momenta.
