Ail Cravings and Needs of the
Soul Satisfied by Death and
Resurrection of Christ.
However far-reaching and deep the
needs and cravings of the soul may be,
they are all met and satisfied in the
death and resurrection of our Lord
Jesus Christ. But before we look at
this great reality In a two-fold aspect,
let us first contemplate the great fact
of his resurrection. This is demon-
strated, beyond all question of doubt,
by evidence more substantial and reli-
able than any accepted historical
event can boast of. '
The fact of his resurrection is
proved by various witnesses who saw
him on earth after he rose, and by one
who saw him in glory after he ascend-
ed up on high. Then we have the
value of this great fact; everything Is
declared to depend on it—the interests
of those who are dead, of those who
are still alive, and, indeed, of all man-
kind. But let every eye be fixed on
the Itisen One himself, on his resur-
rection platform, in the magnificence
of an unsurpassed triumph. I often
wonder how little we are detained by
such a sight. He has left everything
behind—death, the grave, Satan's
power. He went down beneath every-
thing; he has risen up above every-
thing. How blessed to see him on that
morning, the brightest that ever
dawned on earth I
Here is the history of the second
garden. The first garden opened with
a man and a woman in innocence, and
closed with them fallen and driven out
from the preesnce of God. How strik-
ing, too, that the locality of Eden can-
not be discovered; God has hidden the
site where innocence was.
In the second garden the Second
Man meets us, the Risen Man, more
than man, God over all, blessed for
evermore. Yet as man here we see
him, risen out of all the wreck and
ruin brought on by the fallen creature,
What a change comes over the heart
in relation to all on earth when we
see him risen, and when all our rela-
tions are with him risen! Christ's
death closed the first volume of man's
history, all that we were. The second
volume, which opened with his resur-
rection, is filled up with all that he is,
the glory of his person, his finished
work and the perfection of his victo-
The first aspect of his glorious res-
urrection is in relation to the need of
the soul In respect of sin—the resur-
rection of the Lord Jesus is the blessed
proof of the complete putting away
of sin for the believer in the atoning
sacrifice of his cross. "He was deliv-
ered for our offences and raised again
for our Justification." He stood as his
people's representative, and bore their
sins in his own body on the tree; but
God raised him from the dead, thus ex-
pressing his full and perfect satisfac-
tion in, and approbation of, the great
work of redemption. Peace with God
In all that he is, in righteousness,
truth, mercy and love, follows as a
The second aspect of Christ's resur-
rection is In relation to the burdens
and cares and sorrows of life; the
risen Christ binds up the broken in
beart, and fills the blanks caused by
the ravages of death. How blessed to
be connected by the risen Savior with
the scene where he is; nothing will
hinder him in his love coming to where
we are in sorrow's night, and the
heart's desolation and grief; but he
comes to take us to his own side, as
the Risen One, and to fill our hearts
with all the comfort, and rest, and sat-
isfaction found in and with him where
he is! This, then, Is the Easter mes-
sage—"Jesus lives!"—Rev. W. T. Tur-
plng, M. A.
NEW WONDERS OF THE X-RAY
One ot Its Most Remarkable Uses Is |
to Determine Age of Human
Of all the wonders that the X-ray is
responsible for none is more remark- I

Recently In Cincinnati, a youth was
arrested for striking and seriously in-
juring a fellow workman. Ho stated
when he was arrested that lie was
nineteen years of age. Learning the
seriousness of the charge against him,
the defendant and his father asserted
that he was but seventeen years old,
and demanded that the boy be at once
turned over to the Juvenile authorities,
us the law of this state prevents u
prisoner under eighteen years of uge
beins tried in a criminal court.
Thoroughly convinced that the
youth was at least eighteen years old,
the juvenile court physician decided to
have X-ray photographs made ot the
[ epiphyseal bones of his hand, elbow
and hip, and also photos of the same
bones of a seventeen-year-old youth.
Comparison, it was hoped, would then
I settle the mutter, as it is a known fact
[ in medical circles that when a boy
reaches the age ot eighteen years those
bones become hardened.
The photographs developed from the
X-ray pictures of the bones of the boys
showed that those of the seventeen-
year-old boy had not hardened, but
those of the defendant in the case had
done so. The physician Immediately
fixed the age of I he boy at eighteen

Christ's work cannot be Improved
upon. He Is never going to learn to
do it better. It is perfect now; in-
finitely perfect; that means unimprov-
able. And your victory over the pow-
er of sin is Christ's work. If, after
having yielded your life to him, you
believe what he says, then sin cannot
have dominion over you, for you are
under grace; and grace Is the infinite,
perfect, unimprovable work of God
through Christ your Savior and Life.
Perfection cannot be Improved upon.
Infinity cannot be added to. That is
the sort of unimprovable, infinitely
perfect victory,that Christ offers to ac-
complish for us and in us now and
Always. But to watit to do wrong' Is
in Itself sin Wrong desire of any
sort is sin; we are under the domin-
ion of sin when we want to sin. And
Christ pledges us his word that, It
we will let him set us free, we shall
be free indeed; sin cannot have over
us even the dominion of our wanting
to do wrong. So it Is that when we
really believe in Christ's cleaning
power, the "want to" dies. Thut Is
victory Indeed,—more than victory,
for with the "want to" gone we are
"more than conquerors through him
that loved us."
Sure Source of Happiness.
The secret of all strength and happi-
ness Is conscious union with our Di-
vine Source. This establishes in us p.
sense of security, an assurance that
we are not playthings of chance, pup?
pets of accident or fate. When we
come to a full realization of our utone-
ment with the great creative, sustain-
ing principle of the universe, life will,
take on a new mennlng. There will
be no room for worry, no cause for
fear. We shall be serene, poised, hap-
py.—Orison Swett Marden, in Pictorial
Did Uncle Smile?
Mr. and Mrs. Tompkins had "expec-
tations" from their rich old Uncle Ed-
ward. So, when he came to them on a
few days visit, they prepared to do all
they cGuid do to make a good impres-
sion, and commenced by meeting him
at the station.
On the way home in a trolley car to
a Boston suburb they encouraged their
only child, also,named Edward, to sit
on the old gentleman's knee, or, as he
was stout, as much of It as was avail-
Presently the small boy slipped from
his perch and sided over to his

knee any more," he said, In his clear

Japan's Experience Costly.
When the railways of Japan were
first planned, the narrow gauge of 3
feet 6 Inches was selected for them,
because it was cheapest to build and
equip, and was thought best suited to
the country's narrow highways and
steep grades. Now the 6,000 miles of
Japanese railways, all of narrow
gauge, are found to be sadly behind
the times, and a movement Is on foot
to rebuild them to standard gauge, al-
though the cost Is estimated at nearly
$450,000,000. At present the trains are
slow, the fastest expresses making less
than 30 miles an hour; the coaches
are low and narrow, and the sleeping
cars are cramped and inconvenient;
while most of the railway inventions
of other nations cannot be used be-
cause of the difference In track gauge
and size of cars. The director of ira
perlal railways favors the change, In
spite of the cost, and estimates that
the main Tokaido line could be con-
verted to broad gauge in 12 years and
other lines on the main island of Japan
within 25 years.—Popular Mechanics

LESSON FOR APRIL 1
JESUS GIVES SIGHT TO BLIND.
I.ESSON TEXT-John 9:1-11, 86-S8. (Read
GOLDEN TEXT—I nm the light of the
This, another of the signs which
Jesus performed, is recorded only by
John. It probably occurred in Octo-
ber, six months before the crucifixion,
while Jesus was attending the Feast
of the Tabernacles. There are six
other cases of blindness recorded as
liuviuirbeen cured. Look them up.
I. The Case (vv. 1-4). It was abso-
lutely hopeless. No human skill could
touch It, but Jesus "pussed by," and
that changed everything. What men
cannot do Jesus can. Jesus Is passing
today, and we may expect things quite
as wonderful to happen (John 14:12).
This blind man Illustrates the unsaved
sinner (I Cor. 2:14). He never had
seen. lie was beyond human help (v.
32). He had doubtless given up all
hcyie of seeing. He was without sym-
pathy, suspected nnd despised (vv. 2,
34). Poor—he was a beggar. He is
also a type of the nation df Israel
(Rev. 3:17). We must not attempt to
explain all sickness (v. 3). God fre-
quently uses it for the advancement
of his kingdom (John 11:4). Jesus
not only passed by but he "saw." The
feeling of the crowd was that of curi-
osity and contempt. His feeling was
that of compassion (vv. 2, 4 and 0).
Sickness sometimes manifests God's
sustaining grace (II Cor. 12:8-10). It
Is doubtless true that a large percent-
age of sickness is the direct result of
sin (John 5:14; Mk. 2:5; Acts 12:23),
some, of course, indirectly (Job 23:14-
II. The Cure (vv. 4-11). The word
"must" in verse four is a strong one.
The time for us to do out work Is
"now." This word "must" carries with
it the idea of a divine imperative, and
the reason for that imperativeness is
the approaching "night." Night Is
coming fast, when no man can work.
Notice the works we are to do are not
our own, but "the works of him that
sent me." Compare carefully verses
two and four, and see that Jesus con-
sidered delivering the man from evil
far more Important than speculating
about the origin of his complaint. Too
much time is spent in investigation.
Let us have more of action. The
means used in this cure were clay and
Bpittle. The miracle was performed In
plain view of all who might see. The
man did not ask Jesus to help him, but
Jesus had gone where he was (v. 5).
His words, "Go wash" were a test of
the man's faith (II Kings 5:10-14),
and his part in the transaction was a
testimony that It was Christ who
worked the cure. The use of the
material means in this ceremony made
the man more willing to go and wash.
It gave him something to do, and doing
Is always an end to faith. Siloain
means "sent," and was a type of Jesus
himself (v. 4; John 10:36; Rom. 8:3;
Gal. 4:4). If we wish to receive sight
for our blind eyes,. we should go to
him and bathe (John 8:12).
III. The Controversy (v. 12 to end of
chapter). This controversy gave op-
portunity for testimony, as we have
already seen, first of all upon the part
of the man whose testimony was pro-
gressive. At first he merely spoke of
the fact. He was not acquainted with
Jesus, for he calls him "The man
called Jesus." Later on he is moved
to call him a "prophet." He is a
prophet (v. 17), and later still he
recognizes him as "The Son of God"
(vv. 35-38). This controversy estab-
lished beyond question the fact of the
cure. It brought out the deity of
Christ (v. 33). The man was excom-
municated, but for that matter he was
already outside because of his physical
infirmity, but, best of all, he became
truly Christ's disciple.
IV. Comments. This lesson with Its
vivid contrasts of belief and unbelief
gives us a wonderful opportunity to
urge upon pupils a decision to live the
Christian life. Has Christ opened the
eyes of our scholars to the love of
God, to the awfulness of sin, to the
need of a Savior, our divine Leader
and Brother? Urge them, in the class
und out, to be as outspoken and cour-
ageous for Christ as was this man who
had never before perhaps seen or
heard of Jesus, and whose gratitude a
once called forth this wonderful con-
Being cast out by the rules of the
synagogue brought this man into closer
and deeper fellowship and commun-
ion with Jesus.
He had believed far enough to obey
his bidding, and had thus been healed.
Now he is brought to a great sav-
ing, transforming faith, viz., that Jesus
is the Son of God.
Do we take advantage of our privi-
lege of confession?
