The Fruit of

Daw el Meed, Bill Isaaam, Cekase
TEXT Therefore belna Justlded by
faith, wa have peace with God through
our lArd, Jeaua Christ.
By whom also wa hava screes by faith
Into this arace wherein we stand, and re
joice In hope of tha alory of Qod.
And not only so, but wa alory In tribu
lations also: knowing that tribulation
And patience, experience; and experi
And hope maketh not ashamed: be
cause the love of God la shed abroad In
our hearts By the Holy Ghost which Is
given unto us. Romans 1:1-11.
I. The first fruit of faith is justifi
cation, which means not only that
the ' believer la
forgiven of his
sins, but that ha

Ood'a sight aa
though he bad

tha president ot

of France and the whole world.
He demanded it, however, on the
ground of his Innocence, while tho
Christian believer receives It aa an
act of free grace' on the ground of
Christ's work in his behalf.
Peace With God and the Peace of Qod.
II. "Being justified by faith, there
fore, we have peace with God." Tbla
Is the second fruit ot faith. The apos
tle doea not aay we have the peace
"of" Ood. The one la condition, the
other an experience of that condition.
The moment a man accepta Jeaua
Christ aa Ma Saviour, he comes into
a state of peace with God, where all
enmity is put away, and be is no long
er abiding under wrath or condemna
tion for his sin. It may take him
some time to realise or apprehend
thla through the wes.kness of his faith,
but It Is a fact nevertheless, and the
sooner be graspa It by faith, the soon
er will he come to experience it, and
know the peace of God which passetb
III. But as the remit of being justl
ded, the believed not only has peace
with God, but "access" unto God, as
the apoetle says. Sometimes when we
"make up" with a man after being at
variance with him, wo try neverthe
less to keep him at arm's length. Not
so in the case of God's reconciliation
to ua. Ho permits ua to come Into
the closest friendship and fellowship
with him In Christ.
Reasons for Rejoicing.
IV. And not only have we acceas,
but "rejoicing." There are three
thtnga for the believer to rejoice In.
In the first place, be rejoices "in the
hope of glory."1 That la, In the hope
of seeing God'a glory In the face ot
Jesus Christ when he shall be re
vealed again, and the hope of enter
ing Into that glory and partaking of It
as one of the redeeiped ones.
In the second place, be rejoices "In
tribulations also," because a the apos
tle teaches, the tribulation through
which a Christian passes enlarges his
experience of God . aa hia comforter
This experience assures him ot
God'a love for him and contrlbutea to
the quickening and atrengthening of
his hope concerning the greater com
fort and deliverance that Is to come,
t am a millionaire and promise you a
hundred thousand dollars at a certain
time, and also promise to help you
out of every financial crista which may
overtake you In the meantime. Now
such financial crises come to be re
garded by you aa blessings In dis
guise If I keep my promise every
time. In other words, the fulfillment
of the minor promise on each occa
sion furnishes an additional evidence
of the ultimate fulfillment of the ma
jor one.. This is the meaning here.
V. Finally, the true believer comes
to rejoice In God himself, for to the
verses of onr text we may add the
thought of verse 11, which teaches that
truth. Thla Is the acme of the ex
perience of the justified state, when
we ara no longer occupied with the
gifts, but the giver. Tho love of God
(or us is so shed abroad In our hearts
aa more and more we trust In him,
that we ara no longer absorbed In the
blessings he bestowa so much aa w
are absorbed In him. We come to
love him at laat not for what he gives
hut for what he Is.
These are some of the blessed fruits
ot our faith In Jesus Christ Who
would not covet them If they are realT
Who would not dealre to be right with
God, to be at peace with him, to have
conscious access unto him, to rejoice
in relationship with him every dayf
But why not try If they are real?
Why not "taste and see that the Lord
la good?" Why not In the quiet of
your heart just now, ! receive Jesus
Christ aa your Saviour, and aak God
to 'give you his Holy Spirit to make
these things real t Cod will hear this
prayer aa you keep asking him, for ho
lovea and wants to bless you in his
Love for the Brethren.
Our real spiritual attitude toward
our brethren - always pre-arrangea
God's attitude toward us. "Whatso.
ever ye do to the least of these, ye
do It unto me," said Jaeua. Onr vol,
untary relationship to our brother la
our relationship to Jesus Christ; and
our relationship to Christ Is God's re
lationship to us. We have no divine
license to harm our earthly broths:,
or add one sorrow to bis Ufa, or throw
one shadow on bla path unnecessarily
If men are mean enough to Impart
unnecessary pain, and feel . pleasurs
at beholding the pain or another, that
fact ia proof ot their depravity la

ALCOHOL CAUSE OF DISEASE
Doea Mora Than Anything Else to
Render People Incapable of With
standing Many Ilia.
One of the many prominent physi
cians and chemists who ara now
wont to take opportunity to frequently
pronounce against the use ot alcoholic
drink la Dr. O. Sims Woodhead. pro
fessor of . pathology at Cambridge
university, England. Dr. Woodhead's
latest summing up la clear and strik
ing, and Is set forth aa follows:
"Alcohol Is perhapa tbe most Im
portant factor In the production ot
disease. It does more than anything
else to render people Incapable ot
withstanding disease. Alcohol pre
pares tbe human body for the attacks
ot disease, Just as did the extreme
heat of tbe past season, tbe strsw for
the engine spark to aet on lire. It
can be proved that alcohol taken In
comparatively small quantltlea Inter
feres with the blood. It alters the
Holds very slightly Indeed, but certsln
substances become lesa active and
are unable to do their work so well
aa usual. Tbe fight between disease
and these substances becomes unfair,
the germs make use or their opportuni
ties. Invade the body and aet up dis
ease. Take, for Instance, tbe scoursgs of
tuberculosis. During tbe last ten
yeara tho death rate from consump
tion haa been declining. In London
the decline was 19 per cent; In Paris
S per cent It Is significant In regard
to these figures thst In this country
(Great Britain) the drink bill has
during the same period dropped from
122.30 per head of the population to
$16.65 per bead, whereas In Frsnce It
is very different In this country with
the decline of the consumption of al
cohol has come a lower death rate
from tuberculosis. We do not say this
waa tbe aole cause, but we do remark
that the two things have gone on to
gether. Better bousing, clothing,
education, feeding, and conditions of
life generally have had a great deal to
do with tbe fall In the death rate. At
the bottom of all, however, we have
the gradual diminution In tbe amount
of money spent on drink. This la a
tremendous gain to the nation.
"We, aa medical men, have to do
all we can to point out to the people
that there la a very direct connection
between tuberculosis and the amount
of alcohol consumed. To get rid of
tuberculosis, we must of course, get
rid of the tubercle bacillus. The ba
cillus can only do Ita work when
placed In favorable conditions, and al
cohol baa the faculty of tilling and
preparing the ground for Its growth.
Were no alcohol in tbe soil, the bacil
lus would fall on very atony ground.
By taking alcohol tbe human being
renders himself more open to attack
by diseases of varloua kinds, and Im
pairs bla faculties often to a slight de
gree, but sufficient to Interfere with
his powers of doing good work. Alco
hol we are satisfied Is tbe doctor's
worst friend because tbe doctor wants
to get his patients well. The total ab
stainer will get well more quickly
than If he takes alcohol, and a great
many doctora believe It now. Mora
are coming to believe It every day."

Rev. Father McCory.
Alcohol la Injurious.
Prof. G. Slma Woodhead, M. A.,
M. D., Cambridge, says: "I believe
that every man and every woman, no
matter whether he or she be healthy
or unhealthy, is better of abstinence
from tbe use of alcohol aa a beverage.
A man who haa tb do. brain work pt
any, kind cannot do hia best If he
takes alcohol. It waa my experience,
and I believe it la the experience of
others, that a man who doea not take
alcohol -la alwaya In better training
for athletlca, other things being equal,
tin the man who takes alcohol."
Prof. 81ms Woodhead, In "Scientific
Conclusions." speaks of alcohol's
"power of repelling the leucocytes, the
white cells ot the blood, the police
men and acavengera of the blood, and
so helping to drive them away from
pua-formlng organisms that may make
their way Into tbe body;" and, more
over, tella na that "the child of an al
coholic mother must come Into tho
world with an enormously diminished
Immunity to disease."

As we study these two Incidents in
the life of our Lord, the plucking of

upon the Sabbath, we can surely find
guidance as to what shall be our ob

events, and the principles that un

to be recorded In all three of the

Mind, there waa no reaping and gath

bered with a- ceremonial observance
that was oppressive, yet their own
priests In tbe temple performed the
necessary daily duties and were held
guiltless; and the great David had
once entered that holy place and
taken of the ahew bread from off the
altar and not only ate himself but
gave to tboae who were with him. So
it is that the life ot a manw la of
greater Importance than the punctili
ous observance of tbe Sabbath day.
How Jesua Spent Sabbath.
Passing on, Jaaus enters the syna
gague and there found a man having
a withered hand. Again the ever
watchful PhaHsees observed him
"that they might accuse htm."
Jesus, knowing their growing antag
onism, their attitude of distrust takes
advantage of the helplessness of the
man to teach these Pharisees the les
son of obedience yes for once in
scorn he rebukes tbem; snger and
grief struggled in the heart of Jesus
aa he commands the sick man to
stretch forth his hand, and with the
command went power so that the man
stretched forth his hand reatored
to its full strength and usefulness.
Is It lawful to do good or to do harm,
to save a life or to kill on the Sab
bath? Once again Jesus takes the
law from ita outward application and
reveala the spirit the heart motive
that must apply it wa are to truly love
and serve Ood.
Is It not sufficient that aln makea
strange bed fellows, as for Instance,
the Pharlseea consorting with the
Herodlans, two parties aa opposite as
possible and bitter in their antagon
ism, taking counsel how they may destroy-
thia young Galilean. The fact
waa the disciples had violated no
law of God, but an ordinance of man,
and it has always been that we are
more jealous of such than to really
know tbe spirit of God's commands,
and thereby to govern our actions.
What irony of Jesus' tones as he
asked them "did ye never. read?" The
complaint of a Puritanical Sabbath
was never raised, by one who has a
loving familiarity with the Word of
God God. gave us the Sabbath, It did
not come by accident The heart hun
gers to know him and ita demand Is
for time to worship and to serve him.
It is only those whose hearts are
blinded by the God of this world who
swing to the opposite extreme.
God will surely reckon with those
corporations and individuals who de
mand, aa ahown by the social surveys
of some of the steel towns, for Illus
tration, aeven days labor each week,
or who In their Individual Uvea are so
engrossed in business and In pleasure
as to deaden and starve their aoula,
which are all the time crying out for
God..- - : V'....;
Jesus' anger waa at the hardness,
and hia compassion for this hardness
bf the hearts of tha Pharisees. Let
us avoid the wrath and be Subject to
the compassionate pity of God. Last
Sunday we studied the resurrection of
our Lord. Let us remember thst tho
Christian Sabbath is a weekly remind
er of that great fact . . :
Prlnclplea Make Christiana.
Rules make Pharlseea, principles
make Christiana. It la not "thus aalth
the priest or the council,", that Is to
govern our actions, for that method
haa alwaya aerved to deaden our con
science, hence It is that Jeaus aald, I
desire . not sacrifice but mercy. My
kingdom is not to become a burden)
I came to free men from the burfeo
ot ceremonial observance, t desire

portunity cornea for you to exercise the

Why Should a Chicken
Lay a Soft-Shelled Egg?
Because, Willie, the chicken don't know how to create a hard-shelled egg unless
it has some food with lime in it
So chicken-raisers often provide limestone gravel, broken oyster shells or some
other form of lime.
Let the chicken wander free and it finds its own food and behaves sensibly.
Shut it up and feed stuff lacking lime and the eggs are soft-shelled.
Let's step from chickens to human beings.
Why is a child "backward" and why does a man or woman have nervous pros
tration or brain-fag? There may be a variety of reasons but one thing is certain.
If the food is deficient in Phosphate of Potash the gray matter in the nerve cen
tres and brain cannot be rebuilt each day to make good the cells broken down by the
activities of yesterday.
Phosphate of Potash is the most important element Nature ' demands to ; unite
albumin and water to make gray matter.
Grape-NuU food is heavy in Phosphate of Potash in a digestible form.
A chicken can't always select its own food, but a thoughtful man can select suit
able food for his children, wife and himself.
