If we are redeemed by His blood, His woj-ds to His disciples are for us also, and He is pleased if we meekly receive them and grieved if we reject them. 3. \Speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.\ On at least 10 or 12 different occasions He, appeared to His redeemed ones in His resurrection body (some of these appearances we have been considering in the last five lessons) and talked and ate with them and invited them to handle Him and see that He was no spirit, but real flesh and bones, with the marks of the nails and the spear in His hands and feet and side. Tha which He ever talked about, both mortal and immortal body, the kingdom of God should be to every believer a matter of the utmost importance. But how little we hear about it in ordinary sermons, some people thinking the king- dom to be in them, and others thinking it to be the church, and others heaven! 4. 5. \Commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith He, ye have heard of Me.\ Compare Luke xxiv, 4$. They had been for two or three years constantly with Him, the Holy Spirit was dwelling in them, but they were not fully qualified to go forth in His name as His witnesses until specially filled with the Holy Spirit. Is it not just the .great difficulty with be- lievers now that they are content to be saved by Him and to know Him in some measure, but not willing to be filled with His Spirit, or at least not eager to be filled, although every believer is com- manded to be filled? (Eph. v; 18.) To he filled with the Spirit may meani for us the blessing that rested upon .the preach- ing of Simon Peter and Philip, mean martyrdom, as in the case of Ste- phen or James or John the Baptist. If we are willing to let Him have His way with-us. He will quickly fill us with His Spirit. His work can be accomplished only by -His Spirit. 6, 7. \Lord wilt Thou at this time re- store again the kingdom to Israel?\ The Old Testament foretells and describes the kingdom; the gospels tell of its being at hand, but rejected, and therefore post- poned; the Revelation tells of its being set up and established at His second coming-in jglory, while the Acts and epis- tell of the present age of the gather- ing of the church from all nations, while the kingdom is postponed. When the kingdom comes, Israel, a righteous nation in their own land, shall be the center of it < \ \ ' \ \ an unsettled state and prevent its de- velopment.

The dinner was of the rarest, and served in many courses; and all the floral decorations were in scarlet, in deference to Cardinal Mar- ti nelli's elevation as a Prince of the Chureih. Tonight, the Cardinal and his train will be entertained at Loyola college, in Baltimore. Tomorrow niglht His Eminence is given a reception at Gon- zaga college, in the same city. On May 13th a reception is held for him in the Aula Maxima of McMahon Hall, and the same night a dinner is given in his honor by the Right Reverend Rector and the faculty of the Catholic University. These are but a few of the entertainments pro- posed for the distinguished Church- men. Today, Baltimore is swarmed with prelates from all parts of our own country, besides the number from Europe, wiio have come to attend'the consecration of Cardinal Martinelli, in tihe cathedral of that city. The oc- casion will be marked by all the pomp and splendor of Romanism. The. diplomatic corps, who are nearly :and, a be t center of n the earth (Isa. Ix; Jer. iii, 17). Our Lord did not rebuke these disciples be- cause of their question, nor did He tell them they were carnal, but simply said that the time of the kingdom was not for them to know and that there was special to occupy them till the kingdom should come. 8. \Ye shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and ye shall be witnesses unto Me.\ This is the commission for every believer until He shall come again. In the power of the Spirit be a faithful witness to Christ at home and abroad, to the ends of the earth, believing that His word, faithfully preached, will accomplish His pleasure and prosper in that whereto He sends it (Isa. lv, 11). According to Luke xxiv, 47, 48, the witnesses are to proclaim re- pentance a»d remission of sins among all nations and that all things in thft law. the prophets and the psalms must be ful- filled concerning Christ. Let every be- r lay up in his heart God's word to Israel in Isa. xliii, 1, 10, 12, 21, and make personal use of it. 0-11. \This same Jesus which is taken up from you unto heaven shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven.\ Luke xxiv, 50, 51, says that He led them out as far as to Beth- any and while blessing them with up- lifted hands He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. We may perhaps imagine with what amazement they saw Him ascend from their midst until the cloud (perhaps a cloud of wit- nesses) received Him out of'their sight; ith what interest they listened to the message of the two men concerning His coming again. The next verse in this chapter and the last two verses in Luke's gospel telJ how they returned to Jerusalem with joy and continued to d bless God. Although He had left them aga-in, they were not any more disconsolate, for now they believed in a and returning Christ and were fill- ed with joy. There is one place where it ritten \Comfort one another with these words,\ and the words are those concerning the resurrection of the bodies :he saints and the translation of nU tho living believers to meet Him io th' 1 at His coming again (I Thess. iv. 10- l.S)» an cvfut which rnav take* pln.ee any day for might we know.

Among several oth- er studies, she is engaged on a statue of Tihaddeus Stevens, which she in- tends (to present to the city of Lan- caster, his .fonmer home, in remem- brance of the aid he gave her in the beginning of her career. The years have added a good .many pounds avoir- dupois to once petite \Vinnie Ream,\ but her black eyes are as 'beautiful as ever, her tiny hands as much like snowiflakes and her ma.nner.aB charm- ing as when her studio-recefptions of a quarter of a century ago were crowded by Senators and Judges and the dignitaries of the Capital. It is strange but true, that Govern- ment jobs, especially those under tihe civil service, seem to be losing their attraction. A number of good berths are now vacant, and have been for some time, but not a soul cotaes for- ward to fill them. Once there was a regular scramble for everything offer- ed by tibe government, good, bad or indiffereint~«specially in that much- heralded field, \the J Philippines.\ But market, contains what is rated as one drink of whiskey, usually of very poor quality, and it retails, -bottle and all. at 15 cents. It is easily handled In the public streets without detection. Tn some saloons the whiskey traffic is carried on almost entirely by the aid of these little pocket flasfcs. thus do- ing away wiim the use of glasses, and incurring less risk of seizure, the source of supply being at a safe dis- tance from the saloon. The liquor deputies a few days ago applied to the court for a warrant to search the per- son of a man who ithey 'had reason to believe was pursuing: the avocation of a pocket peddler. They found sixty- three of these little \sandpeeps.\ aU filled iwith a cheap grade of whiskey, concealed in 'his pockets and under- neath his waistcoat.

After the ceremonies in tlhe cathedral, tfbe party will be entertained at luncheon by Prof. Henry Wood, of Johns Hopkins \Tttiversi-ty. An interesting fact in connection with the elevation of Monsignor Mar- tinelli to the cardiinalate is that he is tihe second 'member of the Amgustinian order now in the family of the Pope's councilors. The appointment of two Augustindans to Oardinalates is a mat- ter of rejoicing among the monks of that order, w&o consider that they have been most 'unusually honored. The fact 'that any order has been giv- en double representation is taken to mean that the attitude of the Pontiff toward such organizations is chang- ing from undemonstrative considera- tion to friendly kindness. The House of Cardinals is not yet full, and there Is- opportuinrity for the appointment of half a dozen more, some of wfoicih are expected to come from the monastic bodies. It has been nearfly two cen- turies since the Augustinians had two of their number wearing the scarlet hat at the same time. Cardinal Ciaea, .iso an Auigustinian, \was appointed about a year ago. Invitations have been received by the Diplomatic Corps to attend the dedication exercises at the Pan-Amer- ican fair, on May 20bh. The corps will also be generally represented at the fai<r on \President's Day,\ June 12th. The French Ambassador goes to Chicago next week for a fort- night's stay.

So in higfh quarters the fact is bewailed that not a single applicant has made his appearance ifor the once-coveted post of steamboat toiler inspector, at Manila. The saJary is $2,250 a year; and though the announcement of the examination to be held May 23d was made a month ago, no applications ihave been received. Closer at home there is trouble. The Commission an- nounces that there are not enough qualified candidates for the office of Meat Inspector of the Bureau of Ani- mal Industry in tihe Agricultural De- partment. These places pay fourteen hundred dollars a year, with good chance for promotion. But skilled la- bor of such remarkably high order as that demanded, can fix its own price in the open market. Just before the President left for his western junket, he received a visit from both the new Nebraska Senators, who came on t o get aeauainted with their future field. Senator Dietrich* had been here several times 'before, while Governor of his state; but to Senator Millard, Washington was a literal terra ineoginita. He is a fine looking man of fiflty odd years, robust and well-groomed, witih closely-crop- ped hair and full, Iron-gray beard, pointed at the chin. Has whole air and appearance shows the prosperous banker and business man; and what manner of statesman foe will make, remains (to be seem. However, it is safe to predict that a man of his sound sense, thought unused to public life, will not make imany serious mis- takes. Senator Millard is a Canadian toy birth, *but has lived many years in Iowa and Nebraska. He owns a beau- tiful (home in Omaha, where his wife died a few months ago.

The colony now numbers 4000, and an im- mense area of land has changed hands in the county .on these conditions, which are easy to the buyer and pro- fitable to the seller. JPeovle Talked Abont.

Numberless bens have laid at that rate for eight or nine months, but when the record has been maintained for a full year they have fallen short of tbe mark. The absence of the 200 egg hen from most poultry plants has made her con- spicuous. I do not believe the 200 egg flock of any considerable size exists. Small pens, under favoring conditions and scientific feeding, have reached the mark and even exceeded it, but they are the exception and not the rule. The 200 egg flock is a possibility of the future and will be owned by the careful breeder who mates his prolific layers back to their sons and by a judi- cious system of inbreeding fixes this desirable trait in his fowls. People who are not up to date in their poultry information look on the 200 egg hen not as a reality, but as a product of the hen man's Imagination. After my hen had finished her year I pointed her out to a friend and said she had laid 211 eggs in the last year.

I would have a little door on the back side next to the floor about ten inches high running the whole length of the back and hinged at top.
