The next two lessons-are from the
Revelation, the book which contains
Christ's last message to man. , The
author is John the Apostle, the son
of Zebedee. The book was written frgm
Patmos, a small rocky island in the
Aegean sea, about 96 A. D.
I. The Introduction (vv. 1-3).
1. The title of the book (v. 1)
The Revelation (Unveiling) of Jesus
Christ." This does not mean the mak
ing known to Jesus Christ some se
cret, but the unveiling of his person.
The revelation of Jesus Christ, then,
refers to his personal appearing In
glory to judge the world and establish
his kingdom. The word Apocalypse,
translated Revelation, signifies, ac
cording to New Testament usage, the
unveiling of a person (II Thess. 1:6-
10; I Peter 1:7). The theme of the
book Is Christ's second coining, his
personal, visible appearance In glory
(vv. 1, 7, 10).
2. To whom made known (vv. 1, 2).
To his servant, John, to show unto
Jesus' servants things which must
shortly come to pass.
S." Benediction for those who read,
hear, and keep the sayings of the
book (v. 3).
II. The Salutation (vv. 4-8). Grace
1. To whom (v, 4). The seven
churches in Asia. These were his
torical churches then existing in Asia
2. From whom (v. 4). (1) From
him which was, Is, and Is to come;
(2) from the seven spirits which are
before the throne (v. 4). By the sev
en spirits is meant the Holy Spirit In
his sevenfold plenitude.
III. The Vision of Glory (w. 9-18).
1. The sevenfold lamp-stands (v. 12 .
These lamp-stands, or candlesticks, are
the seven churches (v. 20). The
churches are presented under this fig
ure because they are the light-holders
In this time of the world's darkness.
2. The Son of Man In the midst of
the lamp-stands (vv. 13-18). The vi
sion shows us Christ In the midst of
the churches, indicating that the
church only gives forth light when
Christ Is made the central figure.
(1) Clothed with a garment down
to the foot (v. 13). This is a robe of
royalty as well as of the priest (see
Isa. 22:21), and signifies his right to
Judge and to rule, as well as to offer
(2) Head and hair white as wool
(v. 14; cf. Dan. 7:19, 20). This has a
twofold significance, purity and eter
(3) Eyes a flame of fire (v. 14).
This suggests his Infallible knowledge;
he Is able to see through and through,
even detecting hidden thoughts.
(4) Feet like burnished brass (v.
15), indicating that as Judge and King
he comes with irresistible power.
(5) His voice as the sound of many
waters (v. 15).' This suggests that all
excuses of man will be swept aside
by( his resistless Word.
(6) Seven stars in his right hand (v.
16). .According to verse 20, stars
means the angels or messengers of
the churches to comfort John In his
lonely exile. The stars are in , his
right hand, indicating the high honor
given to 'the minister; he lies In the
right hand of Jesus Christ, hears his
message and then speaks it out.
(7) Out of his mouth went' a sharp
two-edged sword (v. 16). Observe that
this Is not a hand sword, but a mouth
sword "The word that I have spok
enthe same shall, judge him" (John
12:48); "The word of God is sharper
than a two-edged sword" (Heb. 4:12).
The sword has two edges, condemn
ing the evil and approving the good.
(8) His countenance was as the sun
shlneth in his strength (v. 16). The
, effect of sunshine Is healthful and joy
bus to some things, while it is death
and hardening to others. The Gospel
message converts some and hardens
IV. The Command to Write and the
Interpretation of the Vision (vv. 19,
In this command are indicated the
divisions of the book.

ment of Agriculture.)
An egg, whether impregnated or not,
has a small grayish spot on the sur
face of the yolk known as the germinal
spot. As soon as a fertile egg is
placed under a hen or In an incubator
development begins. All eggs should
be tested at least twice during the
period of Incubation, preferably on the
seventh and fourteenth days, and the
Infertile eggs and dead germs removed.
White eggs can be tested on the fourth
or fifth day, while the development in
eggs having brown shells often can not
be seen by tbe use of an ordinary egg
tester until the seventh day. Dead
germs soon decay and give off a bad
odor if allowed to remain under the
hen. Infertile eggs make good feed
ior young chickens and are often used
m me no me ror culinary purposes.
Most incubator' companies furnish
testing chimneys with their machines,
which will fit ordinary lamps. Electric
or gas lamps may be used in a box
with a hole slightly smaller than an
egg cut in the side of the box and at I
the same level as the light. They may J
also be, tested by sunlight or daylight,
using a shutter or curtain with a small j
hole in it for the light to shine through.
A good homemade egg tester, or can
dler, can be made with a large shoe
box, or any box that is large enough
to go over a lamp, by removing the
end and cutting a hole a little larger
than the size of a quarter in the bot
tom of the box, so that when It Is set
over a kerosene lamp the hole in the
bottom will be opposite the blaze. A

hole the size of a silver dollar should
be cut In the top of the box to allow
the heat to escape. 4
The eggs are tested with the large
end up, so, that the size of the air cell
may be seen as well as the condition
of the embryo. The. testing "should
take' place In a dark room. The infer
tile egg, when held before the small
hole, with the lamp lighted Inside the
box, will look perfectly dear, the same
as a fresh one, while a fertile egg-will
show a small dark spot, known as the
embryo, with a mass of little blood
veins extending In all directions, if the
embryo Is living ; If dead, and the egg
has been Incubated for at least 46
hours, the blood settles away from the
embryo toward the edges of the yolk,
forming In some cases an Irregular
circle of blood, known as a blood ring.
Eggs vary In this respect, some show
ing only a streak of blood. All Infer
tile eggs should " be removed at the
first test. The eggs containing strong,
living embryos are ark and well filled
up on the fourteenth day, and show a
clear, sharp, distinct line of demarca
tlon between the air cell and the grow
ing embryo, while dead germs show
only partial development, and lack this
clear, distinct outline.

Amonf new arrivals there are some
matched sets In sports clothes that
seem destined to success, with people
who can afford them. They are the
new skirts, scarfs and hats made to
match, or skirts, scarfs and parasols,
or scarf bag and hat; In fact almost
any combination of not more than three
pieces. They are a triumph at south

reappear In the summer on the beaches,
In the mountains, and elsewhere.
These sets are classed among- sports
clothes, but soine other way of descrlb-
ing them must be found, for that term
is too narrow. "Pastime clothes" fits
pretty well. They are of several degrees
of costliness and expenslveness out of

might acquire a matched set without
too much extravagance by making the.

with borderd ends In the stripe and
the crown of the soft hat Is also-white,
but the uprolllng brim Is striped. One
can think of many color combinations'
that would be as adorable as this mas
