the Bug River.
London, July 2G.— Only the northern
point of the pincers, which the Aus-
tro-Germans have been trying to close
around Warsaw and the Russian
armies, has made any progress during
the last few days. This point has
forced its way across the Narew river
between the fortress of Pultusk and
Rozan, and is advancing toward the
Bug river, which stands for the great-
er part of the way between it and the
Warsaw-Vllana railway, its objective.

shal Von Mackenson is directing at

of stiff work before them If they are

Mission of Jesus on Earth Was
One Disciples Were Slow
It waa very hard for the twelve apos-
tles to understand the sort of kingdom
that Christ came to bring. They were
poor men, not learned, and the sort of
kingdom they had been accustomed to
think about w>s one of glittering tin
sel and Imposing pomp; one in which
purple and fine linen and the blaring
of trumpets and the bowing of knee:
played all Important parts. Many of
them seem to have gone on following
Jesus all the years of his ministry
wistfully hoping and believing that
somehow, somewhere, he was going
to turn around square in his course
and bring about a political revolution
which would drive the Romans out of
Palestine. Power and cabinet minis-
tries should then reward them for
their months of bumble following.
And even James and John, the son?
of the fisherman, Zebedee, who were
closer to him than most of the apos
ties, could not shake off this delusion
at first. Perhaps the kingdom might
not come on earth, they reasoned, but
they wanted to make sure of thrones
In heaven. Places of authority and
importance, where they would be
looked up to. And so they went to
Jesus privately and asked him to
save them places.

Looking down the years of loneli-
ness and persecution and poverty that
lay ahead, he asked them with a touch
of sorrow if they could drink his cup
Confidently they answered that they
could. And they did right gallantly
though they had little notion of what
the cup would be. James preached
the Gospel as far away as Spain, then
the western limit of the world, and

which he was once banished to the

I ndon, July 24.—The Austrlans
and Germans are hurling their attacks
agalnit the Russian armies defending
Warsaw with undiminished energy,
and Field Marshal Von Mackensen,
operating between the Dug and the
Vistula, continues his wild, sledge-
hammer blows against the Cholm
Lublin line of the Russians, directing
them now particularly against the city
The Oermaulc armies at some
poiuts report that progress has been
made. They are operating, however,
through country which the retiring
troops have laid waste, and where
what roads there are, are little suited
for the movement of the heavy artil-
lery which Is necessary for the bom-
bardment of the great fortresses that
bar their way.
It is not expected, therefore, that
decisive actions on any of the fronts
will be fought for a few days, al-
though the 'battle between the Vistula
and the llug river has about reached
Its climax. According to the German
official communication this afternon,
the Germans have Bucceded In break-
ing the Russians' resistance and
forced them to retreat at several

The Russians, however, have had
lots of time to prepare a series of posi-
tions, and it Is believed that they will
make every effort to hold them until,
If It becomes necossary, their army Is
able to retire from Warsaw. To the
south of Warsaw, In front of the fort-
ress of Ivangorod, the Russians have
retired to the Vistula river, which
with Its forts and a lack of bridges,
It is believed, must form a barrier
which the Austrlans and Germans will
find it difficult to overcome.

of one who cast out evil spirits in the
Lord's name without being associated

Their question afforded Jesus the
opportunity to speak to tbem of the
great guiding principle of his life, un-
selfishness. He came not to be min-
istered unto but to minister. You
wonder how much James and John
understood then. Jesur waa constant-
ly making the disciples wonder by the
things he did and said. You remem-
ber how at the last supper he washed
the feet of the twelve; they must have

leader, whom they loved, did what
their stubborn little prtde would not

Always Spirit of Service.
Through all his teachings and the
acts of his life there rings this spirit
of service. He war thinking always
of what he could do for other people
rather than of what he could do for
himself. It showed in little things.
You remember how, when the apostles
had fished all night and caught noth-
ing, Jesus showed them where to let
down their nets and they brought up
a great draft of fishes. There is a
curious country expression which de-
scribes him well. He was so "com-
mon." The common people, the com-
mon things of life Interested him and
pleased hfm. He used to feed the
crowds with his own hands, breaking
the bread and the fish.
It puzzled his disciples at first and
distressed them. It was not fitting for
n king, they thought. Rut by and by
they caught a little of the spirit of the
man and they came to see, even more
after he was gone than while he was
with them, wherein his real klngllness
consisted. He left to us no greater
heritage than this, of laboring not for
ourselves, but for the men aronnd us.

Persistency In Prayer.
Every right endeavor, no les3 thas
every trustful petition, by which men
seek one or another benefit from the
Providence which they recognize as
the source of all their blessings, Is a
prayer addressed to God. By our acts
as well as our supplications we Invoke
the divine bounty. And whatever the
providential reason may be, the best
gilts are bestowed on those who per-
sistently seek them, who are not dis
couraged by one or two failures; who
work and wait with a purpose that
never falters, an Industry that never
abates, and a patience that Ih never
worn out, until success is achieved.
Whether we seek wealth, or fame, or
social distinction, or knowledge, or
virtue, we do not usually get them in
answer to a single supplication. We
are compelled to knock many times
before the door Is opened; and the
less perseverance we have, the greuter
Is the probability that we shall go
away with our ueed unsatisfied.

Misers' hoards have been found in
all kinds of queer places. The expe-
rience of Postmaster Habelton of
Marysvfile, Mich, proves that a man
may bank money against his will and
be made right glad after many days.
The postmaster made a trip to Port
Huron to- do some purchasing. That
was months ago. He took a $100
bill along to meet the proposed out-
lay. After he had named everything
be needed and the articles were be-
ing wrapped up be looked for the
$100 bill—and looked in vai*.
Search everywhere was made, In
garments and along the street to the
point where the postmaster had left
the interurbun car and then the car
Itself. No trace of the bill waa found
and the police department and the
sheriff were notified of the loss. It
made things a little Inconvenient for
Mr. Hazelton, becaase every mail
can't lose 9100 without having his
finances thrown out of adjustment.
After things had been arranged to
smooth over the loss the postmaster
placed a pencil In his vest pocket one
day, and noted its disappearance. He
Investigated and foand a I vole. In
the search something crinkled. It
was the )106 bill. As the postmaster
had adjusted- himself to the loss he
called the situation "an absolute find ! the new hat with an overwhelming

longer. For his daughter's wedding
his wife persuaded him to buy a new

The- youth who delivered the new

The Meter's Record.
A representative of the gas depart-
ment called on a householder and in-
timated that he was afraid something
was wrong with the meter. From the
official point of view, of course, meters
can only show one fatrft, and the symp-
tom which had cast suspicion on this
meter was that it had registered less
during the quarter than in the corre-
sponding part of the previous year.
But the lady of the house has a con-
vincing explanation of the decline.
"You see," she said, "my daughter
was engaged last winter. She got
married in June."
The official, who was evidently a
parent himself, was quite satisfied,
and the meter left the court without
a stain upon its high character;
