FAITH AND WORKS
International Bible Lesson for
Maj 30, "09 (James 2: 14-36)'
It is a common remark that thero
nro two sides to every question.
Thero aro often more than that. Truth
Is very much llko the Now Jerusalem,
It Heth four square, with threo gates
of entrance toward every point of the
compass. Bigotry and egotism would
drive all mankind through one of
thoso gates, denying or ignoring all
tho others, but clear eyed charity see.i
every one of thoso pearly gates, nnd
Is Interested In getting people through
Some of tho bitterest ecclesiastical
controversies hnvo been waged by
men who. havo shut their eyes to tills
principle and who havo Insisted that
their system of theology was as axio
matic as mathematics. Just as cer
tainly as two and two aro four In
their estimation thoy havo tho only
demonstrable theological dogma. A
cursory perusal of tho writings of tho
apostles reveals tho fact that each of
those men presented ono sldo of tho
body of divinity. Thus Paul's thomo
was almost exclusively Justification by
faith; John, in gospel and oplstlo
dwelt upon the value of love: Peter
was the ,champlon of hope, and Jame3
shows up tho necessity of good works.
Tho idea is never intimated by any
one of these writers that tho subject
is expounding is all there Is to Chris
tianity, they each merely emphasize
and develop one phaso of truth.
And yet there havo always been
carping critics who have sought to set
these writers over again each other,
and make them appear to contradict
and oppose each other. Especially
has that been truo In regard to Paul
and James. They have been repre
sented as fighting each other. Even
so clear headed a man as Martin
Luther called the epistle of Jamos,
"an epistle of straw."
Fighting Common Foe.
But such a view Is altogether wide
of the mark. Instead of attacking
each other Paul and James stand back
to back fighting the common foe.
Paul's faith works by love and puri
fies the .heart, and James' works aro
the fruit of tho tree, of which tho
nap is faith. If there wero no Invisi
ble sap in tho tree thero would be
no visible fruit, tho tree might claim
to have sap hut Its falsity would bo
shown by lack of fruit. That sort of a
profession could not save tho treo
from the axe. So tho loudest profes
sion of, faith would avail nothing for
the man who produced no fruit of
right living. The world demands
fruit, fixes its eyes upon fruit, and
thinks not at all of tho sap which pro
duces it So James says: Don't talk
to me about faith in your heart if it
does not show itself in works in your
Faith and Work Harmonious
Faith is necessary and works aro
necessary and they can no moro bo
separated than thunder and lightning.
As Frederick W. Itobertson puts it:
"Suppose I say, 'A tree cannot bo
(struck without thunder'; that is true,
i'01 tnere is nover de3tructlvo light
ning without thunder. But again, if I
say, 'The treo was struck by lightning
without thunder,' that is true, too, if
I mean that tho lightning alono struck
it without tho thunder striking It."
Yet read tho two assertions together
and they seem to bo absolutely con
tradictory. So, in tho same way, Paul
f-ays, "Faith alone Is that which Just!
Pes us," and James completes tho state
ment by adding, "But not a faith
which is without works." There will
lie works with faith, as there is thun
der with lightning; but just as it is
not the thunder, but the lightning, the
lightning without tho thunder, that
strikes the tree so it is not tho works
that justify. Put It in one sentence
faith alone justifies but not the faith
that is alone.
Works aro tho proof that our faith
is genuine. A thistlo might claim to
be a rose bush but it would never pro
duce American Beauty roses.
Or, to change tho figure, Arch
bishop Whately tolls the follow
ing story: "Two gentlemen were ono
day crossing the river in a row-boat,
A dispute arose about faith and work3,
one saying that good works were of
limall importance, and that faith wa3
everything, the other taking Just tho
opposite view. Not being able to
agree, the boatman asked permission
to give his opinion, and said: "I hold
In ray hand two oars. This in my
right hand I call 'faith,' this In my
left lwnd I call 'work.' Now, gentle
men, please to observe, I pull the oar
of faith and pull that alone, and tho
boat goes round and round and makes
uo progress. I do the same with the
oar of works, and with precisely the
same result no advance. But now I
pull both oars together, we rush
ahead, and are soon at tho landing.'
So faith without works, or works with
out faith, will not suffice. We must
use them both in order to reach the
haven of rest. Or, aa James puts It,
"But says one, 'Thou hast faith and
I have workB. Show mo that faith of
thine by thy works, and I will show
thee by my works that faith of mine.'
These are the two sides of tho
Bhield, tho two wings of tho bird, the
two arms of a man, the two oara of
tho boat, the two hemispheres of tho
planet of truth. No contradiction, but
perfect unity, between the apostle of
faith and the apostle of vmrka.
MONEY IN CUTTING OFF HEADS.
Bloody Guillotine Job Has Paid the
Anatolo DIebler, the executioner, or
"Monsieur de Paris," of French ro
mance, has expressed hlmsolf Btrongly
In favor of capital punishment not on
account of tho suma received from the
Government for his work ho is rich
but for tho good of society. Anatolo
is tho son of tho former executioner,
who died a few years ago, and whoso
father was In the samo business be
fore him, tho bloody job being hand
ed down in tho DIebler family from
generation to generation.
He has owned two guillotines, both
built in tho year of 1871, one of tho
previous niachlnos being burned by
tho CommuulRts. Each of these guil
lotines cost $t00. Tho knife, which
-elghs about fifteen pounds, is worth
10. Tho total weight when it falls
,vith Its cast-iron back is ninety
pounds, and It drops from a height of
eight and a half foot. Anatolo seem
ingly looks upon tho business as a
more "surgical operation." He h"S,
howoror, a deep senso of his useful

"To waken a deaf person who
wishes to be called at a certain time
in the morning is about tho hardest
proposition a hotel clerk runs up

"It soems to mo the man who can

Nests of the Golden Eagle.
Every pair of eagles whoso habits I
havo had an opportunity of watching
over a period of a few years would
seem to havo invariably at least two
alternative sites for their nests. Some
have threo, and I know of ono with
four sites. In fact, I only know of 0110
pair out of many which habitually re

Tho reason for this is, however, ap

The Date of Christ's Dlrth.
It is known that tho Christian era,
based on the birth of the Saviour, is
older by several years than tho time
assigned in the calendar; but the pre
cise year in which Christ was bora
has never been finally determined.
Lieut.-Col. G. Mackinlay has recently
investigated tho question anew, nnd
has stated his conclusions in a book,
for which Sir W. M. Ramsay lias writ
ten a preface. The date on which ho
fixes for the Nativity is S B. C, ac
cording to our present chronology. Ho
bases his reasoning on the assumed
association of John the Baptist with
periodical "bright shinlngs" of tho
planet Venus, the suggestion being
that theso special apparations of
Venus are the groundwork of the story
of the "Star of Bethlehem."
British onglnoors anticipate that
ono of the most Interesting features
in the manufacture of electrical 1 ma
chinery during tho present year will
be a great Increase in the use of ball
bearings. Several types of motors
havo already been placed on the mar
ket which have ball bearings. Among
the advantages of such bearings Is the
relatively small amount of lubrication
required for motors fitted with them.
It ia considered also that such moior.-i
should furnish a better output than
those having ordinary bearings. Ex
periments have been made in Europe
on the application of ball bearings to'
traction motors, but in this case tho
conditions are not so favorable as In
that of motors for use in factories.
Not Afraid of a Ghost.
In a village In England, a month or
so ago, a scan came running Into an
inn at nine o'clock at night and cried
out that there was a ghost in his back
yard. There were 14 men in the Inn,
and not one of them dared to go
home with tho man and inveaUgato.
There was a person who dared, how
ever, and that was the landlord's
daughter, a girl of 14. Some of tho
men followed her at a distance, and
she went Into the yard and up to the
ghost flapping its arms about, and dis

nor leas then a man's white shirt flap

The Craze for Speed.
Those mighty ocean steamers, like
the Lusitania, the Mauretanla, .nd
the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, w' ch
rush across the Bca at tho rate of thir
ty miles an hour, burn up a thousand
tons of coal apiece every day. It re
quires five thousand tons to drive one
of them across the Atlantlo at that
high speed. At a moderate speed,
less than half that amount would do,
but our century is gone speed crazy.
On steamships, on railroads, on auto
blloa. we must have speed, and sacri
fice everything to It, even human
lives. Everybody Is mad to "get
there," whether he has any business
"there" or not Boy Life.
By Rev. George Clarke Peel:
Text: "One thing I know." John
Not a very long curriculum, surely,
oven for a man born blind. Yet that
single piece of knowledge wns worth
a ton of the things ordinarily known.
Moreover, ho did not say that "ono
thing" was all ho know. Ho merely
seined upon tho "one thing" which
meant most to li.m just then, the
thing which ho supremely know, and
thrust it in the faces 0 his tormen
tors "One thing 1 know."
For men who can cay that same
thing the age Is always waiting. Mo:i
who know one thing, and who know
that one thing supremely well, are al
ways in demand. Many a brilliant
fellow has been spoiled by his versa
tility. Of such a one, prominent in
professional circles, his friend said
recently: "He failed by knowing too
many things, and not knowing any
one of them profoundly." Not our
versatility, but our grip on one par
ticular thing, Is what really counts.
Most of us begin life as "Eileen,"
in Chambers' recent novel, said she
began expecting to know "every
thing about everything." Soon, how
ever, we reach the stago at which we
are content to know "everything
about something." And we probably
end, as she did, by confessing that
the most we can hopo is to know
"something about something." But to
know that something supremely well,
and to subordinate every other knowl
edge to it, is one part of greatness.
There were many things, doubtless,
which General Grant did not know. As
a wood seller he was worsted by all
his neighbors In the business. He
was so little fitted for commercial life
that all the world know of his failure.
In a certain clerkship he was account
ed a dreaming nobody. But he knew
"one thing" knew it so thoroughly
that he left his whole country in debt
to him; knew It so splendidly that his
name has gone down in history as ono
of its greatest military strategists.
It was said of a certain professor
that he "knew nothing but Greek."
Socially he was hopeless so absent
minded that if his head had been de
tachable he would have left it in tho
hall. He lived Greek, dreamed Greek,
and if one might judge from his
cadaverous cheeks he might have
subsfsted on Greek roots. But he
knew a thing which his pitying stu
dents had yet to learn tha all tho
world asks of any man is that he
know one thing well. And, dying, he
will leave the whole world In his
Darwin onco sadly confessed that
he had lost his early love for poetry
and music. But that confession regis
ters also the value of such a man in
the world. He had to live his own lifo
on the principle of natural selection.
To turn in at one gate meant tho
shutting of other gates behind hiu-.
And who shall say but that tho culti
vation of an early taste for music and
Shakespeare might have lessened the
peerless contribution he made to hu
man knowledge. To know one thing
and to know it thoroughly; to submit
to bo called narrow and perverse; to
dig into a subject rather than to make
the leaves lly over it, is tho surest
way to a large place in life.
But let It be remembered what this
former blind man said ho know. It
was very simple. It was not some
thin0 which he had done. Something
had been done for him. He had been
recipient, not actor. God had opened
his eyes. His was that fundamental,
irrefragable, final knowledge rest
experience. "Whereas I was blind,
now I see." Ho was not so much lov
er as beloved. Ho had learned his
greatest lesson by letting another do
something for him. To know what
that blind man knew, and to know it
In the way ho knew It, is tho greatest
thing in the world.
There was once in Boston, an old
codfish dealer, a very earnest and sin
cere man, who lived prayerfully every
day. One of the great joys of his life
was the family worship hour. One
year two other merchants persuaded
him to go into a deal with them, by
which they could control all the cod
fish in the market nnd greatly In
crease the price. Tho plan was suc
ceeding well, when this good old man
learned that many poor persons in
Boston wero suffering because of thu
great advance In the price of codfish.
It troubled him so that he broke down
In trying to pray at the family altar,
and went straight to the men who
had led him into the plot, and told
them he could not go on with it. Said
tho old man: "I can't afford to do
anything which interferes with my
family prayers. And this morning
when I got down on my knees and
tried to pray, there was a mountain
of codfish before me, high enough to
shut out the throne of God, and 1
could not pray. I tried my best to
got around it, or get over It, but every
time I started to pray, that codfish
loomed up between mo and my God. I
wouldn't have my family prayers
spoiled for all the codfish in the At
lantlc Ocean, and I shall have noth
ing more to do with it, or with any
money made out of it." Home Herald,
