JANUAKY UAiJjI PAGE FIVE, / One Incomparable Sermon/ Brass Tacks'* on the Sunday School Lesson Looking Backward thew $ »8. are th-j pure in Ho»rt for thi»y ihull ··· Go4.'*-- Mat By DR. ALVIN 3-5, B13LL The number "uovtn" is repeatedly used Jn Scripture as ,t .-symbol of completeness and pe-rfeUlovii. We are not surprised, therefore, to find In our anajsls of that one Incomparable s-er- mon of tho ages, tho Sermon on the Mount, that It is a set en-fold sermon upon seven te v t.j setting forth the fundamental principles of the Kingdom of Heaven whioh Christ as rang was offering His nation, much as a candidate for the presidency formu- late'i a platform embodying tho principles and poll'-iies he proposed to follow if accepted by the people. This Kingdom Plattorm 1« found in Matthew--Chapter 5, G and 7. Tho first three of those texU are iloalt -with in this week's lesson. The last four will ho dealt with In the lessons of the two following Sundays. The 'af«re of the Kingdom. The most Important announcement Jeuis had to make concerning Ills Kingdom was that it was to be purely spiritual In nature and in no sense political or material. Ho never quite succeeded in getting this Idea across even \vlth hl.s dlaclplos. ICven at his ascinsion they asked him about re- -torliiK tho Kingdom to Israel, and tie jiolntod them to the spiritual power of Poutccost. His llrst "beatitude" lefined tho n a t u r e of His liindom as spiritual and utterly different from that of tho kingdoms ot this world: "Bloauwl a i o tho poor In spirit for She'rs is ihe Kingdom of Heaven." All uf the other "beatitudes" are the de- t clopment of this a^ text. Those who in no spirit of wlf-righteous satisfaction feel t h e i r poverty of spit it will mourn to God and 1o comforted; thoy will DO meek toward their feUownien and yet Inherit the earth, they will hunger for the righteousness ot" Ood In which they fool no poor and shall lie tilled; they will bo-merciful to their lellows and receive mercy la return: JTATE CONVENTION OF PASTORS OPENS MONDAY AT HARRISBURG CHURCH flAKRISBtlRG, Jan. 23.---Tho prep- u u t l o u s for Ibo Pastors' State Con\ r n t l o n , Monday Tuesday, Janu- u y 27, 2S in the Grace Methodist Kalacopal Church, Iliirrlfiburg, are iiw completed and an encouraging at- t e n d a n c e ' H expected from 20 detno- mlnatlons representing all sections of t'wnsylvania.

Tho Purpose of the Kingdom, The purpose ot the Kingdom Is not to coeice the world but to transform it, preserve, sweeten and 'irigrhten It. It Is put into the earth PS salt and light. "Ye are the salt of the earth: ye are the light of the vortd " As quietly and Invisibly as salt the kingdom Is to preserve the wond from rottenness and decay; and as quietly and viedbly as light the kingdom Is to btighten and. enlighten a world lying hi darkness anrt the shadow oC death. The King declared his policy and attitude toward all that hurt preceeded Him to be a policy of constructive and perfecting harmony and lot destructive and subversive. "Think not that I azn come to destroy the law, or the prophete; I am not com * to destroy, but to fulfill." Thus He made the commandment "Thou shall i ot kill" apply to malice of the heait aa well aa violence of the hand, and the commandment agalnet adultery He applied even to the lustful look and inner desire of impurity. Ills idrils were not lowe-r but in every sense higher than those that preceded, ev«u to the perfection of God iis the itloal: "Be ye therefore perfect, even a' your Father which la in heaven la perfect."

H * i n n ninnnn* the heAd hunting "Tho Transforming Power ot tlio G-ospel" was vividly illustrated by Dr. Robert A. Longwell, missionary of HIP Baptist Church jn Assam, d u r i n g hid fiddross at the closing session Thursday ovoning of the mid-winter meeting of the Monongrahela Baptist Association. It seems hardiy possible, buf never- the less is true, said Dr. Long-well, that children aid grandchildren ot savage head hunters of that region are now graduates ot colleges and universities and many of them engaged In carrying on missionary work among their people aa a result of the- prea«'h- ing-of the Gospel by Dr. Longwell a n d other missionaries, amon;* whom v as tho late Rev, Rlloy Bailey of Mill Run, this county. It Tv«e a thrilling recital of the c xtt- version of the head huntore and otiar savagea and the results at the end of a generation. For instance, in this region, about Ga.ub.UI, where Dr. Longwoll's headquarters are, he c ted a hand hunter who boasted ho had at his liotne the lieada o£ 51 persons he had slain la combat. There if a among the head hunting savages that Hie spirit of every one whose head the individual possesses will be hte servant In the next world. Therefore the urge to get as many a« possible. Gradually, through the work of the missionaries thie superstition is beinpr overcome. Dr. Longwell has spent more than 25 yearns In the Assam field, where for 20 years he was associated with the late Rev. Bailey, who had many relatives among the Baileys ami Dulls of Connellsvllle ami this section of Fayette. county. Dr. Lonswel! received his education at the Mount Pleasant Classical and Scientific Institute and during his etudent days preached at the Penneville. Baptist and other churches In Western Pennsylvania One of the persons who came Into the Pennsville church during hta min- tetry, ho eaid, was Mrs. Charlcti Det- wllor of near PennsviHe, who was at the service to greet him. Dr. Longwell and his wife are now on a furlough of a year, at the end of which they will return to the mission field.
