It was- Christmas Eve, nnd Jerry, the only son of Southbury's woalthy department store proprietor, was about to arrive home from college for the Christmas. vacation. Mrs. Donaldson, a sentimental, over-stuffed m a t r o n, hovered about the house, giving last minute orders to servants, scrutinizing every small detail; for her Jerry, her little boy, was coining home. Then she heard footsteps on the walk, and hurried into the living room lo compose herself for Jerry's Ions awaited arrival. Jerry, tall, handsome, and slightly intoxicated, appeared in the doorway followed by tho butler. "Is tliis all, Master Donaldson?" gnspecl tho butler as he staggered in with bis load of luggngo. The grips began to slip from his arms, and as he tried to balance them, several pieces crashed to (he floor. Jerry, delighted, re- piled the luggage on Die butler. "Absolutely all," he answered. "Jerry, darling!" Mrs. tionald- son skirted the butler and baggage and fell on JUT son's unstable neck. "Oh, molher is so glad to have you home — but why all the —luggage — just for your two Christmas weeks'."' "Big surprise, mamma," announced Jerry. "Not guing bade to college — can you imagine Unit —your Jerry boy walked right out of nasty old college and told 'em lio wasn't coming baclc. "Don't wanna bo a lawyer, mamma. Nobody wants me lo be n lawyer, except you, mamma. We don't need all the social prestige, not these clays." He gave her a loving tap. "It's smart to be pro-le-tar-i-yut, just plain people like you and Pops and me, without the trimmings." Mrs. Donaldson was oh the verge of tears. "Oh, Jerry, this is going to be Jerry Donaldson nn nwful shock !o your father—" "I don't want to run father's department stove, cither," Jerry interrupted. Ho became serious. "Listen, mom, you get that straight with the old man. Just because I'm not cut out for a nwyer, doesn't mean I want to plant myself in this hick town for the rest of my life, turn into ;i glorified floorwalker, for Pops. Please get that throiifih his head, mother, You're the only one r;in do it!" "Jerry, you don't know what, you're saying." "I do, mother, for the. first time in my life," insisted .lorry. "1. know what I don't want io'be in life. That's something. It's a .start. Let me live for n while will you, without any npron strings?"' He was tensely earnest and sober for the moment. "Without a lot of parental advice and authority. Lr>t me relax, by myself, so I can figure it ali out." * * * T-TE looked nt her pleadinfily, hoping she would understand. But his mother looked blank a/id confused. She saw only that her cherished dreams were vanishing, that her son was being temperamental and disobedient. "All that wonderful education— wasted!" Mrs. Donaldson wept. Jerry stared at. her quietly for a moment, then walked over to the Jiving room table and poured himself' a drink from the decanter. "Jerry, don't," Mrs. 'Donaldson begged. "You've had too much ; already. Ol), Jerry dear, some- ' times I don't think you appreciate all mamma and papa have clone for you—all the sacrifices—' "Sacrifices?" Jerry looked quizzically about the sumptuous home. Mrs. Donaldson sniffled into her handkerchief. She took her son's arm and led him to a hidden recess where a' splendid Christmas tree reached to tho ceiling and hung heavy with decorations and toys. "See what I spent all day doing just lo surprise you?" she said sentimentally. Jerry stared, unimpressed, at the ornate tree. "My lord," he cried' with annoyance, "you'd think I was still 10." "You are still' 10 —to your mother." ;ins\veiT-d Mrs. Donaldson poifinantly. "You aKvays will be. my darling boy." She enveloped her son in a motherly hns, Jerry drew away -i'om her almost in terror. He roc-led a bi!. • ''Ever hear of that good ole silver cord,,,Mamma?" he drawled, and raiser} his .class. "Time one of us cut it." He set his glass down suddenly.} "Aw—nuts!" lie said, and slamming the door behind him, went ou( info thc> night. QUTSIDE, snow ind the wind whipped in(o Jerry's (lushed face. He staggered toward his car, climbed in and started the motor. . As he waited for the engine to warm up, Jerry contemplated the break lie had just made. "Been wanting to do it for a long time," he mumbled. "Oolta get away, start on my own. Never amount to anylhinff in (his town. Niilhing fur me hi-re—c-xcept. the old man's store. Pon't want to work for tlie old man. Col (a get away." Suddenly he reached down, eut off the motor, "lie can have his car, too. Don't want anything'. Want to be on my own. I'll make good. I'll show 'em—all of them. Mamma, the old. man and—and Alice." The thought of the girl sobered him. She was swell. Working here in Southbury, teaching a flock of kids. Alice. Jerry el imbed out of the car, gazed up and down the street. Someone was walking toward him, A girl, lie drank in the icy air, striving lo clear his befuddled ; brain. lie pulled a half-empty • bottle from his coat pocket, tossed • it into the car. and then into the darkness. (To 15e Continued) m of the Kingdom Text Mntthcw r.t:3*g, 31-M, 44-4fi By WILLIAM E. OlLROV, I). D. Fxlltor of Advahcc Much of the charm end persistency cf the fondling of Jesus lies in the form in which thnt teaching was giV- t-n. Above all things, of course, is the mural and spiritual worth of the It-nth that Jesus uttered, but, noble truth has been uttered in great vbl- nines by deep-thinking philosophers where it has been lost, perhaps to be worn and worm-eaten on the shelvs of dust-ridden libraries. .Jesus put the truth in the vivid story Conn of parables, and these have retained nil the vitality and freshness, after nearly 20 centuries ami after the reading and re-reading, that would long ago have ended as commonplace any lesser or even more brilliant things What were these parables of Jesus Thy were stories from life. But were they true stories about actual persons nnd events? About this, we do not know, but it seems more likely thaat they were stories formed by the imagination of Je.sus to declare nnd illustrate the truth that He wished to teach. They wevc true thiit He wished to teach. They were true in the sense that they were thlfies which might hnppen anywhere in daily lite. They were true in their human content. When we read, for instance, the lory of the Prodigal Son or of the Good Samaritan, the truth of the story nnd its plain teaching do not depend upon whether there was an actual father and an actual son in such a situation, or whether some man actually went down the road from Jerusalem to Jericho and was helped and c.-.red for by n Good Samaritan. These stories were true in a far larger and deeper sense than as the relation of mere facts. That is why they have applied so persistently to every age and race of man. Here in our lesson we have three parables of (he Kin.gdom of Heaven, ell designed to illustrate its nature'. Tile first is the parable of the sower going forth to sow his seed. It might be called more properly the parable of the hearer, for it is intended to show how tlie different ways in which people react to the words of life are typified by the different sorts of ground into which the seed falls. The seed that fell by the way-side was devoured by the birds; the seed that fell on shallow earth with rock underneath had a quick growth, but also quickly withered away; the seed that fell among thorns was choked before it came to any growth; but some seed fell upon good ground and yielded fruit. The maning of this seems to be that tlie Kingdom of Heaven is not something that is forced upon us. It comes near to us, and we have the opportunity of accepting God's grace and becoming members of the kingdom; but it all depends on ourselves. What sort of ground are we? Do the seeds of truth fall on us in vain? The parable of the mustard sed and the parable of the leaven and the meal are told to illustrate the way in which tile kingdom grows. silently yet. powerfully, as it makes its way in tlie hearts of men. Tlie parable of the treasure hidden in the field and of the merchant's seeking feoodly pearls illustrates the suprmo value of the kingdom of heaven—that is, the kingdom of God's grace is the one real possession that it is worthwhile for men to sacrifice everything else to obtain. If we believe that, we are fjt for' the kingdom.
