We have bfforo us the task of sum
mnrizius and getting the heart of the
last nine chapters of this wonderful
book of beiriiiiiins, the topic of the
portions assigned as the lesson heing
"Joseph's Forgiveness of His Brethren,"
which will have an analogy in Jesus'
forgiveness of Israel when they shall
receive Him at His coming in glory
and, turning to Him with the whole
heart, shall say, "I.o, this our God; we
have waited for Him, and He will
save ns" ilsa. xxv, ih. The gospel
which does not proclaim forgiveness of
sins ns the tirst thing freely given is
rot the gospel of God, but "another
gospel" of uiuu's device (Gal. i, 0-1:2;
Acts xiil, 3S. :)!: Luke xxiv, 4r.-4s.
If Jesus has been truly revealed to
ns, then we have heard Him say,
"Come near." and life and conscious
forgiveness are ours in Him (xlv, 4,
30, 11, with which compare Kph. II,
13; I, 0, 7i. To question the reality
and sincerity of this forgiveness, as
Joseph's brethren did (1, l"t, Is only to
display the contemptible meanness of
our sinful nature aud to accuse the
Lord of forgiving as we do. No won
der Joseph wept when after all his
kindness to his brethren he found them
so misjudging him. Our similar treat
ment of our blessed-Lord is enough to
make Him weep too.
What an abundant revelation of the
heart of Christ is to be found In His
three weepings at the grave of Laz
arus, over Jerusalem and In Geth
semnne: We would do well to consid
er in this lesson study the seven weep
ings of Joseph (xlil, 24; xliil, 30; xlv,
2, 11, 10; xlvi, 2!); 1, 1, IT), five times
over his brethren and Benjamin aud
twice over his father.
Last week's lesson left Joseph ruler
over all the laud of Egypt nt the be
ginning of the seven years of dearth
and in full and absolute control of all
the corn to be had. If life was to be
prolonged. It could only be by applica
tion to Joseph, aud the corn had to be
paid for. In our case there Is no life
but in Christ, yet it cannot be bought,
but must be accepted, a Joseph's breth
ren obtained theirs, freely (I John v,
12; Rom. vl, 23i. Tha testing of Jo
seph's brethren in chapter xlil and the
remembrance of their guilt suggest
the true penitence of the nat4on In days
to come (Zech. xil, 10), when they shall
look upon Him whom they pierced.
In chapter xliii Judah consenting to
become surety for Benjamin and his
plea In chapter xliv, 1S-34, are among
the most eloquent parts of the whole
Btory, and particularly so as we re
member that our Lord came from Ju
dah and is spoken of as the surety for
Israel 'in Jer. xxx, 21, revised version,
margin. The words "peace," "wel
fare," "well," "good health," of sliil,
23, 27, 2)S, are all the same word and
remind us of Mordecal In Est. x, 3,
but especially of Him who Is our peace,
our health, our salvation.
In xlv, 1, Joseph made himself known
to his brethren. Jesus must make Him
self known to us, and this He longs to
do by His spirit through His word. We
should beware of reading the Scrip
tures without seeing Jesus, for other
wise it may bo time lost. It is beau
tiful to see Joseph recognizing the hand
of God in all the events of the past
(xlv, 5, 7, 8, !'; 1, 2''i and sending the
messages of love and good cheer to his
father from the long lost son.
Two of Joseph's words to his breth
ren as he seut them to bring his father
should become watchwords with be
lievers "Kegnrd not your stuff, for the
good of all the land of Egypt Is yours,"
and "See that ye fall not out by the
way" (verses 20 and 24). God would
Lave us as strangers here, regarding
not this world's goods except in so far
as we can use them for Him, but, rich
toward God in Christ Jesus, have our
affections set upon things above and
avoid all strife as we Journey on.
In proportion as things unseen be
come real all things seen and temporal
become unreal. Jacob in his old age
is careful to walk with God, and as he
is about to pass out of the land of
promise to go down to Egypt he seems
to Lave some misgivings and to desire
a message from God. lie is therefore
granted a comforting and assuring mes
sage from his faithful God (xlvi, 1-4)
and so goes on his way to greet his
long lost son. He could not believe
that Joseph was still alive till he saw
the wagons which Joseph bad sent for
him. It 13 well when, there is visible
evidence In our lives that Jesus lives
end has sent us to bring people to Him
(Eph. 11, 10; Tit Hi, 8)
. Do not fail to note the meeting of
Jacob and Tharaoh and Jacob's testi
mony (xlvii, 9k also Jacob's blessing
upon the two sons of Joseph (xlvill,
13-20) and the wondrous fullness of the
blessings upon Joseph himself (xllx.
22-20). Compare the last words of Ja
cob and Joseph in xlviii, 21, and 1, 24,
and note the assurance of deliverance
from Egypt as foretold to Abraham in
chapter xv. 12-10. See Joseph's twice
tepeuted "God will surely visit you"
(1, 24, 25) and think of the testimony
of that coffin In Egypt to many a dis
couraged soul ":ho8e long years of op
pression ere Moses led them out. We
look not to a tead person, but to a
risen, living, returning Christ, who will
. fulfill every promise of God to every
THE FARM TELEPHONE.

More Desirable. ,
Farmers are probably the most
enthusiastic telephone users. To
the resident of the rural sections,
the telephone means even more th.iu
it dues to have a splendidly organiz
ed postal service, distance reducing,
rapid transit ekctrc systems und they
live almost twxt door to every other
inhabitant in the city. Consequent
ly even without the telephone they
have not the sense of isolation, the
feeling that they are cut off from all
their fellow beings that the farmer
experiences. Even with all these
advantages over the farmer, the
cUv dweller, almost without excep
ta i n, has a telephone in his otlice
or in hid home, lie linds it abso
lutely iudispensible. It '3 a busiuess
uetr.er. In many ins'a-.ices more busi
ness travels by way of the telephone
than over all the other highways of
commerce. There has been and still
is a Li'eat demand for the telephone
in this count y aud all are bending
th'"ir energies to supplying this de
mand. The latest developed telephone
field, however, is the rural or the
agricultural sections of the country.
Two reasons can be eet down for the
backwardness of telephone develop
ment tn these places. The tirst
and most important is to be found in
the fact that up to the last four oi
five years farmers practically did
not know what a telephone was
The.; depended entirely for com
munication on the slow going mails
or their own teams. The secontl
reason was the fact that even h"ud
the farmers wanted telephone ser
vice they could not have had it. The
Bell Telephone Company absolutely
refused, time r.nJ time again, to give
any telephone service to small cities,
much less so to a half dozeu or
more farmers scattered over wide
sections of the country. "There is
no monty in it," said they. But
then t ter men came into the tele
phone bnsiness, the men who are
now known as the "Independents."
While, comparatively speaking,
the telephone development on farms
is not great, yet taking into consid
eration the very short time the far
mers have had telephones at all,
this development is most wonderful
of the achievements of the telephone.
On the modern farm the telephone
is a luxurious necessity. One could
expatiate all day on the utility of
farm telephone aud yet not have
to (piarter. To the farmer the tele
phone is almost human. It is more
to him than any other of the great
inventions of the ninetenth centu
ry. A telephone on the farm is the
best investment a farmer can make,
to say nothing of its convenience,
and where he can build his own line
the expense is nothing compared
with the benefits.

and money, making many trips to
the village unneces-ary.
2. It gives the farmer all the
advantages of his village neighbor,
by placing him in communication
