Suggestive Questions on the Sunday School Lesson by Rev. Dr. Llnscott for the International Newspaper Bible Study Club. May 16, 1909. Paul's first missionary Journey.— Iconlum and Lystra. Acts xlv:l-28. ~ Golden* text" All "UuPgods of the nations are Idols; but the Lord made the heavens. Psalm 96:5. Verses 1-2—Point out on the map In your Bible where Iconium is situated. Can two missionaries working together do more good than they could working separately? Has the story of Jesus lost or gained, In Its charm upon the multitude, since that day? Was the unbelief of these Jews a matter of the Intellect, through lack of evidence, or was it a matter of the heart; that Is, a result of their rebellion against God? • Verses 3-7—How do you account for the fact, that thesame evidence, and spiritual demonstration, which made one part of the multitude turn to God with gladness of heart, made the other part angry in heart, and murderous in their actions? Would you judge from this story, that all the good people were on the side of the apostles, and all the bad and dishonest people on the oilier side? Will a wise and brave man, sometimes run away from such danger as threatened the apostles, or will he always stay and face it? The apostles fled to Lystra and Derbe; where are these places situated? Verse 8—Is there ever any blame to be attached to those who are born with either physical or moral defects? Are parents ever to be blamed for either physical or moral defects in their children? Are pre-natal influences as powerful In shaping a child's destiny as postnatal? In our present national condition, should the state provide for and maintain all those who are born In an Impotent condition? Verses 9-10—Is faith, like this man had, possible for all, or is it a gift of God, the same as the resultant grace and healing? Was this a miracle, and whether or not, does God Intend to run this world by law or by miracle? Verses 11-13—What was the Idea that these people had of the Deity? How would It be likely that Barnabas resembled Jupiter, and Paul Mercury to these people? Is it a trait of human nature to believe In some popular superstition, rather than the plain truth of God? Verses 14-15—If a man of God Is being regarded In some superstitious way, is it his duty to administer a rebuke? Have the best of men got the same natural passions as the worst of men? What comfort is there to us In the fact, that God made " the heavens and the earth?" Verses 16-18.—Does God pay Uio same attention to the crops of the sinner, as he does to the crops of a saint? Verses 19-20—Was it the same people that stoned Paul, who before this wanted to do sacrifice to him? Can there be any reliance placed upon the applause of the multitude? Verses 21-28—What kind of a man is he who, laid out for dead through stoning, starts on his way the next day preaching his story of mercy and love? Lesson for Sunday, May 23rd, 1909 —The Council at Jerusalem. Acts xv: 1-35. AftftEftiMENTHNOTICE.

Wednesday evening, May 5, the Sophomore girls gave a reception to the boys of that class at the home of Celo Potter. Games were played, songs sung, prizes contested for, and at a late hour light refreshments were served, after which ghost stories, and stories not concerning ghosts, were told. The Senior class entertained the faculty Friday evening, May 7, at the home of Miss Adah Waye. The other classes were there also (outside the house) and made living very enjoyable (?) in the near vicinity with their presence. They managed to kidnap one Senior and held him in durance vile while they bargained (over the telephone) concerning how many things the Seniors would give them to eat if they would release him. Pickles and cookies were finally agreed upon as the ransome price and the unsuspecting under-classmen released Tommy and allowed him to en joy himself among his other class mates the rest of the evening. But alas! They were "wa-hooed." They got the pickles all right and what seemed to be a box of cookies. It was a. box, but it held no cookies. To the j pickles then! And everyone grabbed a Juicy pickle and took a. big bite. Then there wad running to and fro arid calling for the fire department to get busy. Water was at a premium. Yes, they were pickles all right, but each pickle contained about, a tea- siioonfull of red pepper. The tournament of the tennis division of the Suburban League is to be held at Harvard School today.
