Colombian "Rain Tree."
A novelty in the vegetable kingdom
has recently been reported as rgive
to the United States of Colombia. In
the woods adjacent to the city of
Moyobamba grows a tree which the
natives call "rain tree." It is about
fifty feet high when it reac-ies ma
turity and about three feet in diameter
at its base, and has the property of
absorbing an immense quantity of hu
midity from the atmosphere. This
Is concentrates and subsequently
pours forth from its leaves and
branches in a shower and in such
abundance that in. many cases the
ground in its neighborhood is convert
ed into veritable bog. It possesses
this curious property in the greatest
degree in the summer, when the riv
ers are at the lowest point and water
is scarce. It has been suggested that
this tree be planted in the more arid
parts of Peru for the benefit of the
Cravats of Wood Pulp.
A syndicate of English capitalists.
Is engaged In an endeavor to promote
a market in this country for tie silks
made chiefly from wood pulp. This
product is principally obtained in
South America, Paraguay furnishing a
large supply. The vegetable silk has
Its origin in trees and is readily adapt
able to native looms. The woven
threads arc supercalendered, which
process presents a silky finish resem
bling mercerized goods. For several
years past this glossy material has
been sold in piece lengths to the up
holstery trade, by which it is utilized
for filling purposes. The selling test
of artificial silk for cravats is anxious
ly awaited by local manufacturers.
Collecting Bird Statistics.
The bird club at Bellows Falls, Vt.,
had been divided into two sides with
the object before them of seeing
which side should see and name the
largest number of birds during the
season of 1904. One side saw 89 dif
ferent varieties and the other 83. Six
varieties not seen by the winning side
but seen by the others makes the totai
number of birds named by the club. 95.

ii., 46 Memory Verse, 37 Cominen.
tary on the Day's Lesson.
I. Christ teaching in the temple (vs. 37
39) . During the closing days of the feast
great opposition - was stirred up against
Jesus, and the Jewish rulers sent officers
to apprehend Him, but notwithstanding
this He taught boldly in the temple. 37.
"Last day." There is a difference of opin
ion as to whether this was the seventh or
eighth dav of the feast. Edersheim thinks
it was the seventh day, which wa3 really
the last day of the feast. The eighth day
was kept as a Sabbath, when there was no
ceremony of drawing water from biloam.
Jesus stood. In the temple court, prob
ably in Solomon's porch. "And cried."
Spoke with- a voice loud enough sa all could
hear. Ii any man thirst. It was burn
ing autumn weather, when the sun had
ior months shone in a cloudless sky, and.
the earlv rains were longed for. Water at
all times is a magic word in a sultry cli
mate like Palestine, but at this moment it
had a double power, vine ceremonies of
pouring water commemorated that part of.
the wilderness Wanderings when the peo
ple were suffering from a . terrible thirst,
and Moses at God's ' command brought
water for them from the rock (Num. 20:
1-11). Now Jesus invites all who were
suffering from spiritual thirst, like the
burning thirst of the people in the desert.
Thirst is emblematical of spiritual necessi
ties; an intense need and desire for par
don, for help, for righteousness, for love,
for peace, for comfort, for God, for ' a
worthy life, for immortal life. "Let him."
Freely and without hesitancy or reserve.
Come. A very precious invitation. .J. his
Word ought to come with great force to
every soul thirsting after spiritual life, lo
come to Jesus is to believe on Him, to ac
cept His teachings, to repent of our sns,
to yield to His commands, to submit to
Him fully. "Unto Me and drink." Here
we see' the absolute sufficiency of Christ
for all human need.. Jesus confronts the
sin and misery and heartache of the world
and deliberately declares that He is the
panacea for it all.
38. -He that believeth." . To believe has
the same meaning as to come, as used in
the preceding verse. - "Scripture hath
said." The reference is not to any one pas
sage, but to many passages and promises
combined. See Isa. 58:11; 44:3: Jer. 31:12;
Ezek. 47:1-12, etc. "Out of his belly." The
innermost part of man. the soul, the heart.
""Shall flow." This clearly implies some
thing received that it may flow from the
recipient unto others. "Rivers." Denot
ing abundance, freeness, continued supply,
in contrast with the smalk golden pitcher
used in the ceremony of pouring water.
"Living water." Pure, running water,
ever:floAving streams; the opposite of stag
nant, malarious, poisonous water; also life
giving water (chap. 4:10). The saspel of
Christ, which is the truth of God received
into the heart by the Spirit, brings life,
health and jov.
39. "This 'sr&lce He." This is John's
explanation of Christ's words. "Of the
Spirit," etc. The HoTy Spirit and His in-
nuences were tne living waters, aoundant,
free, purifying, bringing life, health, salva
tion to the soul, as water to the thirsty,
as rain to the parched earth, and making
every Christian a source of the same influ
ences which he has received from the Holy
Spirit. This is a prophecy of the dispensa
tion' of the Spirit which was to commence
with the outpourning ot the Spirit on the
day of Pentecost, and continue through
the ages till all the world is brought to
Christ. We need to lay more emphasis in
our day upon this wonderful gift, both for
our individual growth and usefulness and
for the salvation of the world. "Not yet
Elven." The- dispensation of the Spirit
ad not been ushered in, and He had not
vet been poured but upon the hearts of be
lievers in all His fulness. This cannot
mean that the Spirit did not exist and
was in no sense present with believers in
the Old Testament dispensation.
II. Different .opinions concerning Christ
(vs. 40-43). 40. "Many said." Those
Who heard the powerful declarations ot
Jesus knew that He was move than an or
dinary man. "The prophet." Referring to
the great prophet predicted by Moes
(Deut. 18:15), "whom some identifred with
tl.b Messiah, and others supposed would
be the forerunner of the Messiah." From
the next vevss we see that here He was
distinguished ficrn the Messiah. 41.
'.'Others said,"-etc. These believed Jesus
to be the Messiah the Christ, the Anoint
ed One whom all pious Jews were expect
ing at this period, and to whom their re
ligious rites all pointed: though for the
most part they were expecting only a tem
poral King or Redeemer. "Out of Galilee."
Christ seemed to them to come from Gali
lee, because His early home was there and
much of His ministry had been there.
42. "The Scripture said," etc. The Jews
Knew that the Messiah was to be of the
iamuy oi ijavia (,rsa. 102:11; isa. y:u, ;
11:1-5: Jer. 23:5) and was to be bom in
Bethlehem (Mic. 5:2; 1 Sam. 16:1. 5, IS);
but tney cud not know that in Christ these
fecriptures -were fulfilled. All the trouDe
with this argument vras that thsy did not
take care "to ascertain the facts. Their quo
tations.of Scripture were an argument in
favor of Jesus being the Messiah, for He
fulfilled the Scriptures. Many another ar
gument against religion is of this same na
ture. Men set up a caricature of religion,
and arguing against that really presents
arguments in favor of true religion as it
is in the gospel. "Where David was."'
David was bora in Bethlehem and lived
there until he was called into the service
of Saul, Israel's king. 43. 'A division."'
it means a serious and possibly violent di
vision.! III. ! The Jews seek His arrest (vs. 44
48). 44. "Some of them." Some 01 the
people, provoked by the controversy would
on their own responsibility have carried
Him before the Sanhedrin. The reference
here is not to the officers. "But no man,"
etc. Not even those who had been com
manded to do it (see vs. 32. 45). They
were fettered on the one hand by fear of
the adherents of Jesus and on the other by
the secret power of God, impressing them
with an involuntary awe, so that they
dared, not proceed.
43,. "The officers." Not Roman so'.diers,
hut temple police, answering to the mod
ern constable. They had, been directed by
the members of the Sanhedrin to arrest
Jesus (v. 32). "Whv'-etc. The officers
had returned without fulfilling their mis
sion. and the ar.tnorities were chagrined
46. "Never man so snake' (ft. V.) Christ
spake (1) with authority; (2) with direct
ness to men's hearts; (3) with power; (4)
clearly, and distinctly.

way to cure deafness, and that is by consti
