LESSON FOR FEBRUARY 21
THE SEVEN HELPERS.

It would be a source at reat bless
ing If every teacher and scholar would
read through the book of Acts several
times during the year. Such reading
will give vision, inspiration - and a
more comprehensive idea' of the con
tinuation of what. Jesus "began" and
which, record Is not yet fully written.
The time of this lesson is about A-D.
35,. though Ramsey places it at 32, 53;
and the place, the city of Jerusalem.
I. The Occasion, vv. 1-2. For a timer
the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus
continued in Jerusalem, but soon the
pressure of circumstances thrust it
forth as prophesied (1:8). There
were two groups of men in the early
church: those, who had been born in
Juojea who spoke Hebrew (Aramaic),
and those born in foreign cities and
who spoke the Greek language. "Trou
ble arose over the distribution of funds
among certain of the dependent wid
owsthe text suggests "secret ills
pleasure." There was imperfection,
selfishness, suspicion and Jealousy in
that early church. . - "
II. The Method, w. 3, 4. It; does not
appear that God gave the chrh
cut and. dried program accon&ito
which" it must act. Certainly the
church had no precedent Jto "Jclbw,
and step by step God was 'developing
it. This lesson gives us a suggestion
of those steps: : (1) As the occasion
demanded, (2) The Apostles refused
to diminish their praying and preach
ing, literally it was "not pleasing" to
God for the Apostles to "serve tables."
Such work mustV be done, certainly,
but it was not to be done by these
God-appointed and selected leaders,
their 'duty rwas clearly stated. The
minister's business - is praying and
ministering the. word These things
should fully engage hJttenUon, eaid
in them he Is "to continue steadfast
ly." The minister cannot manifestly
"know more about books than the
schoolteacher; more about politics
than the politician; more about med
icine than the doctor; more about
psychology than the college profes
sor." No, that is out of the question,
though he should -be intelligent in
tnese lines. But he should be pre
eminent in prayer and in the minis
try of the word, and. furthermore he
should preach that word pre-eminently.
(3) . The church, -sot the apos
tles, must needs select these new of
ficials. (4) The qualifications ot
these mga, who were thus to care
for these' temporal affairs, were (a)
"men of good report," not those bear
ing doubtful reputations, nor chosen
, because they were rich or shrewd in
business, (b) "full of the spirit" It
demands the Spirit-filled man to look
after financial affairs as certainly as
it does to teach or preach the word,
(c) "full of wisdom." Men of com-
mon sense, a quality often sadly lack
ing among spiritually-minded men.
Men meeting such qualifications will
b men of -'the spirit of power, of
love, and of a sound mind" (literally
sound sense). (II Tim. 1:7).
III. The Method of Choosing, w. 5, 6.
(1) The people did the choosing. The
early church seems to have been re
markably democratic. (2) The choice
was made after, and not before, pray
er had been offered. This is a sug
gestion and a warning for present-day
practice of choosing church officials.
(3) t it was a legal selection, not the
selection of a minority, and it was
confirmed by the laying on of the
hands of the apostles.
IV. The Result, w. 7, 8. First of all
upon the people. (1) The word "in
creased."(2) The number of disciples
"multiplied greatly," and (3) Some of
the priests of the Jews were "obedi
ent to the faith." Secondly, the re
sult in the lives of the thus chosen
and Spirit-anointed men gave evidence
of the good hand of God. They were
"full of grace" (Eph. 4:9, Acts 16:15);
they were "full of power" (1:8). The
first two of them soon became great
and mighty ' preachers as well. In
deed as far as we can read they even
outstripped the apostles themselves
in real achievement for God. Ste
phen, of course, stands out pre-emi
nently. His character is suggested in
verse eight. He was (a) "full of faith,'
(b) "full of the Holy Spirit," (e) "full
of grace" (R. V.), (d) "full of power."
How sad it is that so frequently our
churches fail to make a wise and
spirit-led choice of its leaders, and are
content with few, or perhaps none, be
ing added to, its membership.
No man is fit to be an officer in the
Church of Christ unless he is filled
with the Holy Spirit, (Acts 1:8, Luke
94:49).
h Such: a man will always stir up op-
position of the powers of evil, even
as did Stephen.
Those who opposed Stephen were
moral and religious men (v. 9). - Fre
quently the opposition a Spirit-filled
man encounters is not from the im
moral, the worldly, Or the utterly tuv
godly; ' bat those who stand out
against aim, and reason against, him
- (v. 10), and often seek to kill him,
rtx moral and religious men.

About 4 o'clock this afternoon
Joseph MoLawhoru, nephew of
Sheriff McLawhorn, was fatallv
hart by being struct? with a pick
axe by one of the negro convicts
he was guardiug Particulars are
hard to get, though it occurred
only five miles from here The
convicts were working on the road
and as yet no information of why
the oonviot made the assault has
been had.
The piokaxe entered MoLaw-
horn'B head and much of his brain
oozed out. The doctor says it ib
impossible for the wounded man
to live long.
After striking McLawhorn'a the
convict took his gun and fired
four times at the other guard,
missing, however. The guard
fired at the oonviot onoe and his
gun failed. This convict and six
otherB made good their escape.
There is much excitement over the
matter. Many people have gone
to the scene and are assisting offi

in WO Kobe rt the Firus was
King of Franoe. Robert was more
of a monk than a king. He spent
more time saying prayers and re
peating onants and before the al
tar than he did attending to the
affairs of his kingdom. He had
married a woman whom he loved.
This woman was his cousin. The
Pope disapproved and exoommu
nioated the king. But the yeer
1,000 was approaching, and the
year 1,000 was the year in whioh
the world came to an end, or at
least in which the Apocalypse said
it was going to come to an fnd.
fhe people were filled with appre
hension and half frensied with
terror. They wee restive ancy un
der the ban of the church. Yield
ing to their importunities, R bert
the Pious retarced, put aw a y .bis
wifs and was restored to Micity
in the bosom )f the Holy Oharoh.
It "was in his reign in the year
1022, that active p-rentiers bv-
j
gan under th9 coalitiou of oburcb
and state. In that yar thirteer
Jews were condemned and put to
death at Orleans, and others else
where. In the year 1208 Pope In
nooent III vicar of thr Churofa
and vio reg-i t cf Gcd opou the
earth, called upon the Kiu of
Fiance to lead an army into tjxe
southern provisoes and extermt-
nate heretics. The greater part
of Southern France was ooouptd
by lords, and nobles and peasants.
who, while they were substantially
Catholios, were not in perfect har
mony with the heiraroby at Rome.
For a while the kin; resisted the
importunities of the Pope. Then
the Pops Iunocent III, vioar of
the Church and vioe-regeut of
God upon the earth, issued a pro-
tarnation addressed to kn ights,
abbots, noblesand wimorsvefy
where, calling npm them to arm
and invade Southern France, and
promising every knight, every no
ble, evrv leader who went with
an armed force, that if they should
dispossess any of the inhabitants
of castles, towns, strongholds or
estates, the title to those proper
ties would be vested in the oon-
qusrers. Thus rope innocent ill,
vicar of the church and vice-re
gent of God upon the earth, added
to religious fanatioism the lost ol
rapacity and greed. The armies
gathered and the war of religion
and extermination began. When
a part of the army was besieging
a certain town the soldiers said to
the ohief i "When we have enter
ed how shall we distinguish be
tween the faithful and the heretic?
How shall we know whom to kill
and whom to spare?" and the
chiefs replied, "Kill them all; the
Lord will surely know his own."
In 1545 there was a community
of peasants, that is to say, farm
ers dwelling in peace and content
ment in a provinoe at the foot of
the Alps. This community ex
tended over a domain of about
fifty miles in length and of con
siderable width. They had lived
there, they and their ancestors,
for a period of three centuries
They were not Catholics. They
were heretics. Tueir heresies con
sisted in thtse doctrines: They
rejected infant baptism, th sac
rifice of the mass. the. adoration
of the oross and the sale of indul
gences. Pope Paul III, vioar of
the Church and vice-regent of God
upon the earth, called upon the
King of Franoe Francis 1, to
make war upon the heretics of the
Vandois valley and exterminate
them, but Franoe hesitated. These
people had' regularly paid taxes
and tithes; they were harmless,
industrious ana xragai ine ar
mies of the king of Franoe had
met with reverses in their foreign
wars and the internal affairs o
the kingdom were not in satisfao
tory condition . The clerical par
ty urged upon the king that his
reverses abroad and his embarras
menti at home were plainly due
to the faot that he had relaxed
persecution of the heretics. Stil
the king hesitated. After a while
he sent two Cardinals of the church
to investigate these people. The

Two most important cases on
the criminal docket in the Rowan
