Editor of Admire 'Hie lessons for the last quartet of this year bring us back to the story of Jesus and the Kindfidom of Heaven that He came to establish Jt is fitting that this final lesson of our studies in the prophets should : MH before us a great conception of the Mcsiah and the servant of His ]>cop)c in the prophecy of Isaiah. A generation ago critics were deep- Ay in controversy over whether these prophecies referred specifically to Je- Bus of Na/.acth and were the fore- jjclling of His coming and of events final were to take place centuries Winter, or whether they were Isaiah's .preachings concerning things more definitely related to his own time. The rnost extreme critics took this lat- trc view, but the genera! t f ,, K jeney among thoughtful scholars todays is to regard the Messianic prophecies of havin both these aspects. A As we read these prophecies in Die light of the story of Jesus of Nazarelh and see how essentially his coming and all that he said ancVdid fits in wit!) what the prophets foretold, it seems inevitable that we .should regard these prophecies as relate dto Him. St seems dougtful that the prophets hundreds of years before should have discerned this with exactness. It seems rather that what they .saw was the vision of the Messiah that Je- iJ5|its fulfilllcd, and it is a marvelous ^conception of a kingdom of righteousness, justice and truth coming among men through a Mcsiah who was to be their Savior and their leader. The prophecies have all the deeper •ind renter meaning for us when, in addition to seeing them as related to Jesus, we go back in the agt of the prophet himself and catch .something for hi min relation to the environ- A surprise birthday party was tcnd- :rccl Leo Hartsfied, Thursday cvcn- ng at the home of Mrs. Ben Edmison on East third Street.

Perhaps both Jew and Christian are Iciirning with greater realism that it is this vision and hope that kccp.s life and liberty alive, f it were not for this, the world would of ivJial the matchless vision meant merit in which he lived. This Messianic vision is the gro.-ile.st contribution of (he Jows (u history. The Christian believes that it lias its great fulfillment in ,I>;sus of lapse even more deeply into barbarism and evil. We believe that Je.sus has come as the Messiah, establishing his kingdom, anil we apply to Him all these great names that Isaiah applied to; the " Messias—Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. It is necessary to remember also that if the Messiah has come, His kingdom is not fully established. He Himself told us to pray to the Father, "Thy kindom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven." It is only as we live in the spirit of that prayer and seek to fulfill it in our daily lives that we live in the reality of his great Messianic vision.

Miss Ilerrod was leaning over her, sympathy in her pale eyes. She was holding a bit of cold wet gauze to Marian's temple. Sally was looking down at her. Was thc*e a hopeful gleam behind the concern in her eyes? Mr. Fellows was also there, helpless consternation written large upon his face. Marian tried to sit up and weakly dropped back, "Well, for goodness sake," she said, half laughing. "What ever is the matter with me?" "Shall I call the doctor, Mr. Fellows?" Sally asked breathlessly. "She's terribly white, she looks sick." Marian had the feeling that Sally was making the most of the incident. He hesitated and Marian caught at Sally's hand. "Don't send for the doctor," she said firmly. "I'm all right." Struggling, she sat up. "What's a faint among friends?' "I don't like it," Mr. Fellows growled. "I don't like it at all You've never fainted, Marian." She laughed, smoothing her hair "And I never ce'cbrated a 12th wedding anniversary before. I lasted all night—you know how those tilings arc—" He sent Miss I'fcrrod and Sally from 'he room and sat down beside Marian. "Was it something I said this morning? 'Fraid I was pretty tough on you." "Absolutely not, G. F. I was pretty saucy myself." "Maybe you need a rest." "If you'll keep it a secret, I'l tell you what ails me," she laughed. "I didn't eat my break fast." "So that's it." His tone showcc his relief. "Shall I have somethin( sent in? I'll be glad to." "No, thank you. I feel perfectly all right." She drank a glass o ice water and tackled the mail. She had fainted.

The switchboard girl said, "He' 'round, here, Mrs. Harkncss—hoi the wire." Marian waited until th girl spoke again. "I can't distur him, Mrs. Harkness. He's in Mi urner's office." Marian left a message for him to call her. Dan in Mr. Turner's office— fhat did that mean? Mr. Turner •as president of the firm, the alesmen almost never contacted im.

She ordered a glass of warm nilk in the corner drug store. The luttering wings resented the milk. She took a cab to the doctor's office. "Is Dr. Moss in?" she asked, loping that he was not, afraid to slay, afraid to go. "Yes. Your name, please?" Marian gave her name. "May I sit down?" The room was circling slowly. The girl helped her to a chair, the went through a door and Vlnrian waited. She looked at a 3ilc of magazines. The pages had seen crumpled by nervous, waiting fingers. Would the girl never open the door? The girl came out. Dr. Moss would see her. Somehow, she got across the reception room and into the whiteness of his office. "How do you do, Mrs. Hark- ncss?" he said genially. Were doctors always genial? Did they have to be genial or go mad? She sank into a chair, opening her lips. No words came. The doctor laughed "It can't be as bad as that, my dear." Pouring something into a glass, he handed it to her. "Drink this—it'll make you feel better." She said, "I fainted—silly oJ me." lad brought her back, instinct made her chin go up, squared her shoulders. Sally Blake was sitting at Marian's desk. She got up hurriedly. ''Mr. Fellows Aid you might not come back this afternoon," she explained. "He said I could do your work. I sat down at your icsk—just because I wanted to sec how it would feel to be important." Her laugh was a conscious little tinkle. Marian asked thickly, "Has Mr. Harkncss "phoned?" "No, I've been right here." Marian put her hat in the transparent box, she looked in the mirror, startled that her face was the same. Doctors made mistakes, she kept telling herself, they didn't always know; It wasn't true. Dan didn't want a child, she didn't want a child, there was no place for a child in the well-arranged pattern of their lite She'd go on believing that it wasn't true, and it wouldn't be. Sally had vacated her cirri: c.r.il | she sat down. Ridden by protesting nerves, numb with shock, she threw herself into work. Mr. Fel- ows had suggested a set of slatis- ical charts, tiresome and requir- ng considerable research. She'd ;et at it that afternoon. It would ill all her spare moments for weeks to come. * * M R.
