Then through a kindness done

ElUnbsth Cadell (Morrow $3.95).
No one e?n whip up such utter
ly deltgh*ful "onfections as Eliz
abeth Cadell. The most pleasant
ly ordinary people (Just like you

tures, coincidence piles on coin
cidence. and it is all great fun.
In this book, no one would have
dreamed that Mr Channing, shy,
stolid, devoted to his garden,
would take up with a stran_;e
lady on a cruise. He had gone
only because his favorite daugh
ter, Christine, had to be separated
from James, her betrothed for
three months while his grandfath
er, an Earl in Northum /erlana,
tried to persuade James to marry
a girl with money.
The setting of this sparkling
comedy is Sintro, a lovely town
in Portugal and the home of the
Baronesa de Narvao, Mr. hCan
ning's friend of the cruise. The
Baronesa, when she heard where
the Channings were planning to
stay, was shocked and cried, "Oh
no,? -come be my guest!" That
was only the first surprise of a
most extraordinary fortnight in
Sintra that included a stormy
meeting between Christine and
the Earl, and next the appearance
of James himself. How did they
Ret there? Oh well, Mrs Cadell
manages these things with the
greatest of ease.

Jesus' Own Mother
Le&soa for January 5, ism

#'???? ; l?:2t-:7; Ada 1:14.
D?tuUoi\?! Reading i Lake 1 :4?~65.
JESUS is the hero of the New
Testament. Other character*
meet us In its pages, but no writer
In the New Testament takes an
interest in anyone else except as
they beve wm? connection with
the life of Jexus huuself. So Mary,
nts own mother,
appears id the Bi
ble not as Queen
of Heaven or the
the world, bat as
the simple, good
young woman who
was the wife of a
snri tiii- mother of I
nr. roi cman Jesus of Nazareth
We should like to know more
about her tfuu we do. She was
probably quite young, and also
probably not given what we wouiu
call a higher education Yet we
know that she was the woman to
whom God entrusted Jesus. The
church through most of its history
has believed that Joseph was nol
the real father of Jesus; but the j
church has never thought of deny- I
ing thiit Mary was his rca mother j
Mary was a remembering wom
an. She thought long about the
meaning of things? that is what
"pondered" means She took time
for events to make their impres
sion on her mind. We know she
was a woman of poetic mind.
Most of the words attributed to
her are in poems, presumably
made up, perhaps on the spur of
the minute. She was familiar with
that great poetry collection and
hymn book of her people which
we know as the Book of Psalms.
She was a woman who loved those
Psalms and memorized them and
wove them into the fabric of her
own mind and memory. She re
membered the singing angels, and
the angel who first visited her,
and tbe coming of the Magi. Sho
remembers her son as a sma'l
boy. ond tr'p to
.; when he was 12 years
old. !' v:>3 not a woman to go
talking ati the time with her
neighbors. She did not wear her
heart on her sleeve. She was not
one to live only on the surface of
things. She vas no doubt a busy
and often weary wpwan. But still
she had titne to furnish an inner
chamber of the heart, a secret
world where the wonders of life
were cherished and re-lived.
Jesus as a boy was not given
special privileges except no doubt
those of any oldest son. One spe
cial privilege he did not have: he
was not allowed to disobey. We
read that he "was subject" to his
parents, that is, they directed him,
gave him rommaods. Perhaps the
burden of this fell on Mary, for
Joseph drops out of the picture
and is not heard from in the story
after that visit to Jerusalem. Mary
was what the pest describes. "A
perfect woman, nobly planned. To
warn, to comfort and command '
In the story John tells of the
wedding at Cana, we hear Mary
commanding the servants to do
whatever her son directed. Thia
was a turning-point in her life,
perhaps. At any rate, somewhere
along the road Mary knew the mo
ment which comes to every moth
er, no matter how loving and
good, when she has to let go her
control, when her child looks at
her with level eyes, the child no
longer a boy. a youth, but a mtui.
The last picture we have of
Mary in the New Testament story
is in a prayer meeting. It was in
an "upper room," perhaps the
very room in which Jesus, six
weeks before, had held the Last
Supper on the night in which he
vis betrayed. If you can iraai'""?
what that must have meant to
Mary's imaginative mind, you may
well suppose that Mary was pray
ing as never before. Yet no person
ever comes suddenly to a deep
prayer life. We may well be sure
that Mary had been a woman of
prayer through the years. This is
important; but even more im
portant is the effect on the grov
ing child Jesua. U he was a r r.'.
person, and Mary a real mot! rr.
we can be surw he learned .-.Lo...
prayer arsi Where most of us learn
it, at our mother's knees The man
Jesus knew more of life, its joys,
riddles and agonies, than the child
Jesus. But the faith he breathed
in by his mother's aide would last
till hii dying hour.
