Introduction The Apostle John was the son of Zebedee, a fisherman on the sea of Galilee (Matt. 4:21; Mark 1:19) and of. Salome, a sister of Mary, the mother of Jesus (Mark 15:40; 16:1; John 19:25). He Was thus a first cousin of the Lord Jesus and a brother of James, probably a younger brother, Whom, strange to say, John never mentions, nbr himself, in his Gospel. The brothers were in partnership with Simon and Andrew (Luke 5:10). The fact that there were hired servants in John's home (Mark 1:20); that his mother was enabled to minister to Christ of her substance (Mark 15:40, 41); and that the Apostle WHS acquainted with the High Priest (John 18:15) would indicate that the Apostle was born in a home of some means. The city of his birth and childhood is never given definitely, though it was probably in or near Bethsaida, the city of Andrew, Peter, and' Philip (John 1:44). A Disciple of Jesus John was chosen as one, of the three who made up the inner circle of Jesus' friends. On the Mount of Transfiguration, in the sick room where death walked, and in Gethsemane, he was called into a sacred nearness with his Lord. He was in the boat at night when Jesus came walking to them on the water. He heard the voice that blighted the fig tree. He was present at the court yard in Capernaum when scores were healed. The healing of the blind man made an indelible impression on him. The feeding of the five thousand hungry mouths drove home even deeper the consciousness of the deity of his Teacher. The experiences around the tomb of Lazarus gripped him In an unforgettable way. He knew that Lazarus was dead. He saw him come forth to answer the call of Jesus. He marveled and worshipped. John was not able to understand it all fully but he knew that the Christ was Lord in the realm of nature, sin, disease, and death. He was God in human form. With Jesus During the Last Week When Jesus decided definitely to go up to Jerusalem for the Passover, John realized that it meant trouble and probably death. The Jewish leaders were determined to kill Jesus. He found rest at Bethany with Martha, Mary and Lazarus, and journeyed into Jerusalem while the people shouted their acclaim. In the Upper Room John had his place by Jesus' side during the last supper and heard Jesus' words concerning his own death and the future. He followed his Lord to Gethsemane and was chosen as one of the WvorM tftffce to go ihlo 'the irintef -flatt oi tneVfeiSftfen to watch while Jesus preyed. .WRen the ar* rest wag over instead of fleeing with the others John made his Way to the court yard Where Jesus •WHS taken for trial. John Was the only one of the" group that eathe to the foot of the cross. He could certainly never forget that scene. Jesus called him by name and entrusted into his keeping his own mother. John willingly assumed responsibility for the mother and took her home to be with him and his mother. John 19:25-27. With the Risen Christ "We cannot imagine the depths of despair to which the hearts of John, Mary, Salome, James, Peter and the others sank when they knew that Jesus had actually breathed his last. Hope was gone. They had been mistaken, had come in to rob them Death of all that they had enjoyed. Jesus was dead. On the first Lord's Day, like an electric spark the news flashed forth that the tomb was empty. The Roman guard had failed. The seal of Caesar had been unable to protect the body. The tomb was empty. John and Peter were together when the women told their story. They ran all the way to the NING STAB Sfl»« £? sepulchre and investigated themselves. John ran faster for but waited reverently at the entrance and let the blessed realization sink in. "Yes,—the Lord had said that he would rise again." When Jesus finally ascended to the Father, John was conscious of his divine call and commission to carry the gospel to others until all should know. Pastor In Ephcsus After the Ascension John went with the other apostles to the place of prayer in the Upper Room to await the coming of the Holy Spirit. Following the miraculous events connected with Pentecost John and Peter began an intensive preaching' and witnessing campaign. They were arrested by their enemies and forbidden to preach. Their attitude, when faced by the same authorities who put Jesus to death, was nothing short of amazing. They were as bold and brave as lions. The coming of the Holy Spirit had not only given them power in winning souls but had fortified them with a supernatural boldness. .They did not fear even the very certainty of death. John's Writings "John wrote the last of the four Gospels, the last three of the Epis- oeetlcnnv ' ties of the New Testament (1 John, fec *' 2 John, 3 John), and the conclud r Ing book of the New Testament, the Apocalypse, or the Revelation. It Chapter Nine fcDWW AGAIN Emily snatched off her hat and was about to drop it on a chair when the beautiful room caught her up. She held it instead in her hand. . "It's good to be here, Mother. How pretty you look!" Frances's face softened. She was not entirely in sympathy with personal beauty, but it helped one to accomplish worthy ends. Beauty< like money, was a Great Responsibility. "Thank you, dear. I can say the same thing of you." Emily's face was flushed and her hair curled damply about it. But it didn't really matter how she looked, she thought regretfully, since David wasn't here to approve. "You'd better go and get ready for lunch, now," Frances suggested. 'It will be ready in half an hour." Emily went slowly, wishing with all her heart that pictures of Car- roilton would cease to rise and plague her. Jeffrey welcomed her with an eagerness that was almost pathetic, ttife with Frances was fine of course, but it was also (he apologized to himself for the hint of disloyalty) a trifle sober. Emily, he hoped, would bring life and gaiety and a great many young people to the house. "Pleasant trip home, honey?" he asked. "Very." She smiled at him adoringly, critically. "I can see that you've been positively wasting away." HG chuckled guiltily. "I have put on weight. Needed you to worry about so I wouldn't have such an appetite. By the way," he looked bland, "there was a: young man down town asking about you this morning. I imagine he'll be around before many days." The inner light went dim. Edwin! She'd forgotten about him completely: there wasn't room for Edwin in a memory that, held David. Mercifully, lunch was announced and her silence went unnoticed. Edwin came that evening, as slight and immaculate as ever, wearing the little depreciating .air that was his worst enemy. He held her hand for a long moment after he had shaken it, and then dropped it apol- "PAMPA'S ORIGINAL CUT RATE DRUG STORE' Free Delivery Free Delivery Saturday Monday $1.00 SUPER D COD LIVER OIL 75c VICKS VAPO-RUB 100 Bayer Aspirins 3oc Bromo Quinine 1'epsoclent Antiseptic Quart Milk of Magnesia 50o Woodbury Face Powder $1 Woodbury Creams $1.25 LADY ESTHER FOUR PURPOSE CREAM $1.00 Adlerika 79c We use only fresh, full- strength ingredients in the compounding of your prescriptions — thereby assuring full benefit. 35c Corega 50c Dr. West Tooth Paste 50c Bost' Tooth Paste SOc Calox Powder Phone 1240 S.

After all these years, she thought with a slightly contemptuous pity, he was still shy and a little formal. He would never get over it, she knew; would never treat her with the camaraderie that Judith—and David—had taught her. "I'm glad you think so. Whether it agrees with you or not, it changes you. For better or worse," she said lightly. "Not for worse." They were on the terrace now, chaperoned by the same flood of golden light. Could you ever, she wondered, turn the clock back three-quarters of a year, to another existence? There would be tennis in a moment, and swimming, and details of the wholesale grocery business. With the insight that love had given; her she suddenly felt • that Ed cared a great deal for her and that he was uncertain and unhappy. Unfortunately, the same love made it impossible for her to do anything about it. When he had gone she went to her room and wrote to Judith—a long, intimate, homesick letter. "Judith,, darling," she ejnded it, 'I'm lost without you. Please, please kiss the family quickly, and come and see me!" Then, with a long look at the picture of David, which Judith had jiven her Just as they were leaving, she undressed and went to bed. When 'Emily came home for the summer she brought with her a determination to widen her field of has been suggested that these three works, the Gospel, the Epistles, the Apocalypse, form a beautiful, harmonious whole—faith being prominent in the Gospel, love in the Epistles, and hope in the Revelation. John's Gospel "is the golden sunset of the age of inspiration, and sheds its lustre into the second and all succeeding centuries of the Church." (Philip Schaff). The author states the purpose for which his Gospel was written—"that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life in his name," John 20:31. The five great terms of this verse are the foundation stones upon which the Gospel Is built: believe, Jesus, Christ, Son of God, l(fe. : John's three Epistles were written long after and assume the existence of his Gospel. Again the writer tells us why his First Epistle was written: "that your Joy may be full (1:4)," "that ye sin not" (2:0), and "that ye may know that ye have eternal life" (f:13). "John, who lived long after all the other original twelve disciples had died, is most fittingly the author of the last book of the Bible—a book difficult to understand, butty ieldingl precious treasures to those who will study it with the Holy Spirit as teacher (1:3)." you to kiss I rest. I adore again silence. Days became long, breathless intervals of waiting for the postman, and when he had failed her, of waiting for him again. She wanted write again but pride held her jack: she couldn't beg. When she had been at home five weeks Judith's letter came. Emily darling— I didn't forget you! I've thought of you every day, but it's been so beastly— Emily, we're smashed, cleaned out, flat. No chance of a comeback. Of course there have been crises before, but not cataclysms. This time it's all gone, including Carrolton, and there's no hope of getting it back. It seems that the clouds were gathering before we left school, but they didn't tell me until they ha"d to. Dad, bless his incompetent heart, bet on the 'wrong stock, magnificently. Now we're living in an apartment in Montgomery, and God, what an apartment! Overstuffed velour, Emily, in sets. And the whole family is, for the first time in history, looking for work. I won't sob to you, because you know how I feel without that. David is pitiful. • I loved Carrollton, but I would probably have married and left it. some time anyway: I've always wanted a big house of my own and five children. But he intended to die there, and leave it to his son, and this has done something! awful to him. His eyes look like blue ice. I asked: "Have you written to Emily?" .and he said, "No. Since you're telling her about it there's nothing more to say." And I couldn't say another word. God knows when I'll see you again.

College had taught her that it was easy to have people like you if you liked them: a great many people had liked her at Ardmore. With the girls it wns easy! they had always felt that all Emily needed was to "get away from her mother's apron strings for a while," and when she sought them out they met her with outstretched hands. •But the boys were more difficult. They agreed among themselves that "college had done wonders for Emily Felton," and. wanted to ask her for dates; but the thought of her mother's celebrated Conscience and Edwin's unswerving devotion restrained them. It didn't really matter, Emily felt, except that it might help her to pass the time until Judith came and took her back to Carrolton. But Judith didn't write. There was one hurried scrawl from David: 'Believe me or not, I'm working like a fiend! Have to, to stave off the sheriff. Jude says you're coming down soon. Thank God!

And so, dear child, those who are about to die salute you! Judith. Mrs. Felton found her many minutes afterwards, face down upon her bed, Weak and spent from bitter Weeping. "Emily darling, What is it?" She fought for calmness. "Judith. They've lost then- beautiful home. Everything." Frances Felton was sorry. With a determined effort she forced herself to be sorry, because anything else would have been un-Christian. But in her opinion bankruptcy, like other major calamatles, usually came to those who invited it. She knew very little of the Carrolls, except that they had produced Judith, but Judith was certainly the type to run headlong into disaster. More than that, she had been a rather demoralizing influence for Emily; there had already been unmistakable signs. Still Frances forced herself to be sorry. "How very said! How did it happen?" Frances should never know that Mr. Felton had bet, magnificently, on the wrong stock. "She doesn't say very much about that. They're living in an apartment in Montgomery. Hunting Jobs." "There's no disgrace In that, certainly. It's fortunate that Judith Is young and strong. She will be a great comfort to her mother and father. There's a son, too, I believe you said, didn't you?" '"Yes," Emily whispered, "there's n son." "Then I know they will manage beautifully." It was no use, of course. Her mother wasn't temperamentally capable of understanding. Emily rose wearly to bathe her face. She wrote immediately to Judith and David. Their replies came.almost simultaneously: Judith's as gay and impudent as ever; David's in the voice of a stranger. He wrote: Darling— As usual, you're an angel. The reason I've taken this so hard is because of you—of knowing that I'll never see you at Carrollton again, with you eyes alight with pleasure; that I'll never be able to live there with you, and leave it to our children. Now everything else has faded before the immediate necessity of three meals a day. You know I love you, don't you? If I didn't care so much I'd probably beg you, selfishly, to share something sordid and second-rate. That's one reason why I'm getting away; because Carrollton is in my blood, and anything else I do will be a compromise. And you de- seserve more than.that, my darling. David.
