THE GRACIOUS INVITATION.
"Come Unto Me, All Ve That La
bor and Are Heaven Laden and
I Will aive You Re»t."—Matt.
the great American preacher, said
that these words are the "pearl of
the utterances of the Master."
“Certainly they take high rank
among the wonderful sayings of
Him who spake as never man did.
They are among the most familiar
o( the words of the Christ, and are
very beautiful and highly signiH-
PiRST—The invitation "Come
unto me.” The Book contains
many of these gracious invitations.
In the ancient prophecy of Isaiah
we And God inviting men to come
in such words as these: "Ho,
every one that thirsieth, come ye to
the waters, and he that hath no
money; come ye, buy, and eat;
yea, come, buy wineandmilk with
out money and without price.”
And again in the same prophecy,
we read, “Come now, and let us
reason together, salth the Lord:
though your sins be as scarlet, they
shall be as white as snow; though
they be red like crimson, they shall
be as wool.”
In the closing chapter of Revela
tion, there is given a Rnal invitation
before the record of the Book is
closed. "And the Spirit and the
bride say. Come. And let him that
is athirst come And whosoever
will let him take of the water of life
Christ says, "Come unto me "
Our Lord invites men not to any
particular creed or church, but to
Him. He is the way, the Truth
and the Life. No man cometh
unto the Hather save by Him.
Principal Forsythe declares that
when we come to Christ, we come
Into Christ, Into the richness and
fullness of His love, into vital un
ion and fellowship with our Lord.
Second—The invitation is not
only gracious and personal, but Is
universal. "All ye that lab )r and
are heavy laden," Includes both
saint and sinner. The redeemed of
the Lord are Invited to roll their
burdens on the Master. They are
invited to come to Him with all
their heart aches, their sufferings,
their sorrows. "Casting all your
care upon Him for He careth for
you." The sinner, too, is invited
to come, ll is a universal invita
tion—all. God’s grace is limitless
and the provisions of salvation are

The sunshine of the Bible—there is no light so fair,
There Is no light that leads the world so far from trial and care;
There is no light forever can bring to hearts that bleed
Such comfort and such sunshine in the dark hour of their need :
The sunshine of the Bible,
Through dusk, and night and dew.
The old light and the gold light.
The deathless light and true !
The soldier from the conflict, with his wounded heart and mind,
A strength for life renewing in its lovely light doth And;
The toller at the spindles and the mill-wheels looks, and lo.
The sunshine of the Bible is the light that helps him go :
The sunshine of the Bible,
The sweet lights and the blest;
Down in dark hearts of trouble
Its soft rays lead to rest I
In Held or mighty mountain, wherever grief may be,
In temples of the roaring marts or on the great high sea.
With soft, sweet flooding beauty it comes on glorious wing.
And, lo, the sudden winter turns back to softest spring :
The sunshine of the Bible,
In care, in toil, in strife,
The dear light and the clear light
That leads to endless life I /
Where tempests rage and thunder leaps down the awful sky.
The sunshine of the Bible bids the glittering lightnings fly.
In youth, in age. in battle; in peace, in stress, in trial.
It brings all souls its comforts and It lights all lips with smile :
The sunshine of the Bible,
Oh, where it falls, or when.
The dark dreams of the ages
Fade and leave us once more men I

Oh, maybe she seems to grow queer as the days
Go gliding away into years;
And maybe you tire of her strange litile ways.
And don’t understand her tears.
And maybe the things that are down in her heart
Are things that you know nothing of—
Old mother, still striving to keep up her part.
To tireless and tender her love !
A little more patient with her till the end.
More thoughtful, and careful, and sweet.
She’s been such a comrade and teacher and friend.
In the storm and the .strife and heat.
And maybe the things that she thinks of today
Are far from your knowledge, your ken—
Old mother, grown feeble and palsied and gray.
But when has she failed you, say when ?
A little more willing to bear with her whims,
To cheer her and love her along.
Ah, many a vision in front of her swims.
And the echo of many a song.
And maybe she dwells in a world far apart
From your petty and trivial thmgs—
Old mother, with something still left In her heart
That looks out of the window and Sings!
tor all who through repentance
and faith turn to Christ.
Third-To those who accept
the invitation and come to Him,
Jesus Christ offers rest of soul
and heart as a free gift. He who
makes this wondrous offer has the
power to fulfill it. Jesus said, "I
and my father are one." He also
declared, "All power is given unto
me in heaven and in earth.” The
pronoun I in the original Is emphat
ic, as if to call attention to the fact
that Jesus wished men to under
stand that what the religious lead
ers of the day, the Scribes and
Pharisees could not and did not
do, he could and would do. “I
will give you rest.” He offers
this priceless boon as a gift, with
out money and without price. "But
the free gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord."
And rest of soul is what this old,
war-t»rn, sorrow - swept world
most needs. Christ will give us
the rest that remaineth for the peo
ple of God wherever we may be
in life. He will give it to men in
Ihe mad struggle of business. He
will give It to them in the sick
room. The peace He bestows is
such that the world cannot take
away. Reader, have you found
ihis rest that Jesus promises?
through the ages comes these ten
der words of our Lord. Amid the
crash of empires, they strike upon
our ears like bells at evening peal
ing. Men are offering all kinds of
panaceas for the ills that afflict the
body politic. Schemes and plans
of various kinds are being exploit
ed and advertised. But what a
weary world most needs is that
which Jesus here offers. And
there is only one way to And this.
No man-made precepts will suffice.
He who swung empires off their
hinges end changed the course of
history. He, and He alone, can
heal the wounds of the race. "And
I, if I be lifted up, will draw all
men unto me."
PRETTY LEGEND Of GARNETS.
Apache fndlAiis Believe Spirit of
Ctiief's Daughter Imparts Tails*
manic Power lo Stones.
There is a garnet mine in Arizo
na so rich In gems that the owners
sometimes say the whole mountain
in which it is located is a mountain
of garnets. The Apache Indians,
near whose reservation the moun
tain stands, have a strange myth
concerning the garnets. One night
centuries ago, they say, the little
daughter of a great chief died. As
her spirit passed out, the Indians
gathered about saw a multitude of
sparks fly up from the the tepee
and drifting through the air in a
shining cloud settle on the moun
tain side, where they shone like
star dust, making the mountain
bright. Later, they declare, the
sparks which continued to shine,
never growing cold or dead, sank
into the earth and became garnets.
The Indians believe that the
spirit of the chief’s daughter still
stands guard over the mountain
and imparts to all the garnets
found there talismanic powers to
bring good luck to all who wear
them. These garnets are mined
and sold all over the country In
rings, necklaces and bracelets for
pale-face maids. Many of the gar
net rings are made in swastiki de
sign—the Indian good-luck sign—
and any who happened to buy one
may be sure of prosperous fortune

About the first question our salesmen will ask you when you
try on one of our new

it look?" The difference is that we will Rrst select a hat that

right, so what we want to know Is whether the hat feels right
on the head. Be sure to have a look at our window ihis week
