Lesson XIII. Fourth Quarter,
! For Dec. 27, 1908.
THE INTERNATIONAL SERIES.
Text of the Lesson, a Comprehensive
Quarterly Review Qolden Text, 1
Prov. iv, 23 Commentary Prepared
by Rev. D. M. Stearns.
Copyright, IMS, by American JTcBi Association,
Lesson I. David brings the ark to
Jerusalem (II Sam. vl, 1-12). Golden
Text, Ps. c, 4, "Enter Into His gates
with thanksgiving and Into His courts
with praise." The ark of the Lord of j
the whole earth Is the topic In this first
lesson and also in the eleventh lesson.
Here It Is carried at first in man's
way, but there In God's appointed way.
The great truth In connection with It is j
that of God dwelling with man as bis
righteousness through Christ Jesns.
Lesson II. God's promise to David
a Chron. xvll, 1-14). Golden Text,
I Kings vlll, B6, "There hath not failed
one word of all His good promise."
This Is a great Messianic lesson, In
which David Is assured that the Mes
siah shall come through him, Bhall be
an Immortal man and shall sit and
reign upon his throne forever In right
eousness and truth. Ho will be the
one who dwelt between the cherubim
over the mercy seat (Ex. xxv, 22).
Lesson III. David's kindness to Jon
athan's son (II Sam. lx). Golden Text,
Eph. Iv, 32, "And be ye kind one to
another, lender hearted, forgiving one
another." This was not mere ordinary
kindness and forgiveness; It was the
forgiveness of a king who made the
forgiven ono a member of his own
household, with a seat at his table, and
restored to him nil the Inheritance of
his father. It Is a picture of the king
dom when the Son of David shall
Lesson IV. The joy of forgiveness
(Ps. xxxll). Golden Text, Ps. xxxll, 1,
"Blessed Is he whose transgression Is
forgiven, whose sin Is covered." The
gospel of God concerning His Son Je
sus Christ our Lord proclaims forgive
ness of sins apart from any works of
ours (Rom. 1, 1-3; lv, 1-8, 23-25), wholly
through the precious blood of Christ
(Eph. 1, 7). This redemption includes
all else we can possibly need (Rom.
vlll, 32) and should cause great glad
ness. In the Lord.
Lesson V. Absalom rebels against
David (II Sam. xv, 1-21). Golden Text,
Ex. xx, 12, "Honor thy father and thy
mother, that thy days may be long
upon the land which the Lord thy God
glveth thee." This rebellion suggests
that of the nation against the Son of
David and the great rebellion yet of the
future spoken of In Dan. xl, 81-43; Rev.
xlU, xvll nnd xlx, but the Son of Da
vid shall come In all His glory, and
all His adversaries shall be over
thrown. Lesson YI. David grieves for Absa
lom (II Sam. xvlli, 24-83). Golden
Text, Prov. xvll, 25, "A foolish son Is
a grlcr to his father." I think our at
tention in this lesson should be given
to the love of David, who would glad
ly have died for his son, and from him
to our Father in hoaven, who com
mandoth His love to ns, in that while
we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
Lesson Yn. The Lord our Shepherd
(Ps. xxlll). Golden Text, Ps. rxlll, 1,
"The Lord I my Shepherd; I shall not
want." A meditation upon the Lord
as the good Shepherd, the great Shep
herd and the chief Shepherd is always
most profitable. He gave His life for
us, He lives His life in us, and He will
share His kingdom with ns. With
such a Shepherd we can lack nothing.
Lesson VIII. Solomon anointed king
(I Kings 1, 32-40). Golden Text, 1
Chron. xxvlll, 9, "Know thou the God
of thy father, and serve Him with a
perfect heart nnd with a willing
mind." The rebellion of Adonljah
against Solomon came to naught, for
It was the purpose of the Lord thin
Solomon should reign, and every pur
pose of the Lord shall be performed.
He sat on the throne of tie Lord as
king instead of David, but that throne
still awaits a greater than Solomon.
Lesson IX. World's temperance Sun
day (Isa. xxvlll, 1-18). Golden Text,
I Cor. lx, 27, "I keep under my body
and bring it into subjection." If there
is anything the world needs specially
to know it is the foundation of verse
10 and the coming judgments of verses
17, 18. If the people given to strong
drink saw less of the drunkenness of
xxix, 9, and more of the rest and re
freshing of xxvlll, 12, fewer so called
temperance talks would be necessary.
Jesus, lifted up, will draw men.
Lesson X. Solomon chooses wisdom
(I Kings lil, 4-15). Golden Text, Prov.
lx, 10, "The fear of the Lord is the
beginning of wisdom." Having Just
been exalted to his high position and
realizing In some measure his own In
sufficiency, he asks of God wisdom to
rule the people righteously. The re
quest pleased the Lord, and He grant
ed him not only what he asked, but
exceeding abundantly more (Eph. Hi).
Lesson XL Solomon dedicates the
temple (I Kings vlll, 1-11). Golden
Text, Ps. cxxll, 1, "I was glad when
they said unto me, Let ns go Into the
house of the Lord." Both tabernacle
nnd temple when dedicated were filled
with the glory of the Lord, and no
man could stand to minister. Roth
were typical of Jesus Christ, In whom
dwelt the fullness of the Godhead.
Lesson XII. A Christmas lesson
(Luke 11, 8-20). Golden Text, Luke 11,
11, "For unto you Is born this day In '
the city of David a Saviour which is i
Christ the Lord." Still a kingdom los
son, for He was bom King of the
Jews to alt on the throne of David,
and this purpose of the Lord shall be

I PENNSYLVANIA STATE GRANGE
The Next Annual Meeting to Be Held
at Altoona In December. 1
The next annual meeting of thei
Pennsylvania state grange will be held
In Altoona In December. The full
corps of officers will be elected for n
term of two years. State Master Hill i
Is working hard to make the member
ship of that state 100,000. In a recent
address he said:
"Among the fraternal organizations I
there 1b none more potent than the
grange. It came Into existence forty
one years ago to fill a want. It con
tinues to live and gain In strength and (
innuence Decause it meets me social,
educational, political and financial
needs existing throughout the country
today. Farmers In Pennsylvania rely
upon the grange now as never before,
and this nonpartisan, nonsectarian or
ganization never hesitates to assume
leadership for the betterment of farm
conditions and the development of
strong rural citizenship."
A correspondent writing of grange
work In Pennsylvania Bays that the
grange Is making very satisfactory
growth in that state. Since the last
state grange meeting twenty-one new
granges have been organized and six
dormant ones reorganised and one To
mona organized. The Initiations In the
old granges are fully equal to any
period during the year. He further
"We are a good deal worked up over
the question of representation in the
national grange, and no less so at the
arbitrary way in which the national
grange authorities dictate as to where
the Order shall be planted and where
not. That states which do not have
as many granges In them all told as
we have organized since the 1st of
January shall go to the next national
grange meeting and have as much to
Bay as we shall is un-American and un
fair. If the Order is to continue to grow
In this state there must be justice done.
If the strong states will stand togethej
In the matter It can be done peaceably.
The fact Is It must be done, and the
sooner those who stand In the way
become convinced of that fact the bet
ter." NEW YORK GRANGES.
Some Newsy Notes of the Work In the
There nre eight Juvenile granges in
the state. There shonld be more.
Grange fairs are Increasing In num

Jefferson and Lewis county Pomonas

In the thirty-five subordinate granges

"In Old Kew England" is the title of
a new comedy drama written by Harry
M. Doty, formerly a member of the
Chatham (N. Y.) grange, now editor of
a live weekly In Connecticut. It has
Just been published by J. W. Darrow
of Chatham, N. Y.
George P, Hampton of New York,
who as a member of the grange did
so much to bring about denatured al
cohol legislation, Is to have a large
exhibit of appliances for using dena
tured alcohol at the meeting of the
national grange in Washington In No
vember. Recently a man went through the
town of Fnrmington, N. Y., selling
Bed Wave wheat for seed at 55 a
bushel, taking orders for about fifty
bushels. At a meeting of Farmlngton
grange it was brought out that the
same wheat could be bought of a near
by dealer for $1.75. Many farmers not
members of the Order were victimized.
Delegates to Pomona.
In one of the Pomona grange meet
ings held recently in New York state a
resolution was adopted making the
Pomona meeting a delegated body
that Is, delegates were to be elected
by the subordinate granges In propor
tion to their membership. There was
some doubt about the constitutionali
ty of this proceeding, and the state
master was consulted. He advised
that the Pomona is not a delegated
body and cannot be made such with
out amending the constitution. This
item may be of Interest to other
granges in the state.
New England Grange Excursion.
The Patrons of New England will en
joy an excursion to Washington to at
tend the national grange on Nov. 11 In
that city. The party will be a large
one, as reduced rates and first class
accommodations hare been secured.
