The man rushed off immediately, collecting the children, and as he brought them to Mr. Vanderbilt the millionaire dashed to the boats with two little ones in his arms at a time. When he could no longer find any more children, he went to the assistance of the women, and placed as many as he could in safety. In all his work he was gallantly assisted by Denyer, and the two con­ tinued their efforts until the very end.” Let us in our homes re­ member, the importancë.rpf .'saying .thç ‘‘'kiddies.” ;

Mr. Spurgeon testified that when he opened his eyes at the conclusion of his public prayer, he was sometimes startled and embarrassed to realize that he was in the presence o f his con­ gregation. He had been so near to God, talking to him as friend with friend, that he had forgotten all else. Are there many today to whom Jesus seems so near as that? Yes, there are, but many more ought to know this blessed experience.

“I was onpe walking behind a very handsomely dressed young girl,” said a Christian man, and thinking as I looked at her beau­ tiful clothes, ‘I wonder if she takes half as much pains with her heart as she does with her body.’ “A poor old man was coming up the walk with a loaded wheel­ barrow, and just before he reached us he made two. attempts to go into the yard of the house, but the gate was heavy, and would swing back before he could get in. “ ‘Wait,’ she. Said, ‘I’ll hold the gate.’ And she held the gate until he had passed in, and received his thanks with a pleasant smile as she passed. “ ‘She deserves to have beautiful clothes,’ I thought, ‘for a beautiful spirit dwells in her breast.V’ gfe M arch 8, 1928 T ex t: 2 Cor. 7:1 Bishop Anderson is fond of telling a story about his rosebush. Transferred one spring to a town in the Hudson River valley, while he was an itinerant minister, he found himself in possession of what he believed to be a Japanese rosebush. He watched its development with peculiar interest, but as the time of. roses drew near, he was disappointed to observe a spurious growth spring up from the roots, which, as it grew, smothered his bush and shat­ tered his hopes of Japanese roses. Inquiry revealed that there was a certain old gardener in town who had set the bush some time ago, and knew all about it. The Bishop sought him out and interviewed him on the subject. "You are right,” said the old gardener; “your bush is a Japanese rose, but when we brought it here we knew that it would not stand the rigors of this climate, so we cut an old rose­ bush that had reverted, and grafted that Japanese rose into the old root. Now, there is just one way in which you can get the beautiful roses you want. Whenever you see that old growth cropping up, you must cut it out, and keep on cutting it out, so that it never gets the start of you. Try that next year, and you will get some fine Japanese roses.” .:

A Bible class teacher was telling o f the various translations of the Bible and their different excellences. The class was much interested and one o f the young men that evening was talking to a friend about it. “I think I prefer the King James version for my part,” he said, “though, of course, the revised is. more scholarly.” His friend smiled. “I prefer my mother’s translation o f the Bible myself to any other version,” he said. “Your mother’s?” , cried the first young man, thinking his companion had suddenly gone crazy. “What do you mean, Fred?” “I mean that my mother has translated the Bible into the language of daily life for me since I was old enough to under­ stand it.” Here is a story from a bulletin o f Bethany church, Phil­ adelphia. A soiled envelope lay in the street, walked over by many feet. A little colored boy picked it up. It contained a one- dollar bill. In the store to which he was going he showed it to the lady in charge and said, “ Gee, I’d like to keep it, but it belongs to the church. Do you know any one who goes there?” The lady took the envelope and sent it to the church. On a slip o f paper was written: “ Find enclosed $1.00 for the church repair.” It was from a poor woman for the Bethany renova­ tions. Does the honesty o f .the little colored boy, whose name I do not know, speak to any of us? M arch 12, 1928 Text: 2 Cor. 8:21

“ People will not talk of Mr. Alfred Vanderbilt in future as the millionaire sportsman and man of pleasure. He will be remembered as the ‘children’s hero,’ and men and women will salute his name. When the ‘Lusitania’ was torpedoed, he, with hundreds o f others, went down to a watery grave. As death was nearing, he. showed a gallantry which no words can ad­ equately describe. He stood outside the palm saloon on the starboard side with ,hiS valet, Ronald Denyer, by his side. He looked around on the scene o f horror and despair with pitying

A member of the Ceylon and India General Mission reports that as the native workers were preaching at a Hindu mela, “a Saivite priest asked them for a copy of each o f the four Gos­ pels. They at once asked him why, and he told them that for some time several young men in the village had been coming to
