r' ACROSS THE TABLE. It is strange how little any but scientists Know about lightning and its ireakish be- iiaviour. Probably not one man in ten thou- sand, or in a hundred thousand, realises that a Lightning Research Committee, comprising some of the chief electricians in the country, eat from 1901 to 1904, and arrived at a de- cision as to the precautions which the insur- ance companies ought to insist upon as a condition of insurance of buildings. It is a significant fact that among the 115 cases of buildings struck by lightning which were re- ported to this committee only two could show injury of any sort to the inhabitants. The idea which is widely prevalent that a lightning stroke nearly always results in death is quite wrong, says the Pall Mall Gazette. The percentage of deaths to the total struck is very small. In Germany on one occasion ninety-two persons were struck, of whom only ten died while in the case of a church which was struck over one hundred of the congregation were rendered unconscious, but only six died. In another case two were killed out of sixty struck. Everyone m ,the parish was invited to eon- tribute something to the lucky-bag at the bazaar, and most of them sent something in their own line. It was a shock for an elderly citizen who was supporting the cause when he drew a piece of cardboard bearing the words: "Good for one grave, dug any time during the current year." This was the grave- digger's contribution. The Primate of Ireland tells a story about a chprity sermon preached by his predeces- sor. Two very Scoto-Irish farmers had this conversation after the service. Weel! weel! said the one, "he's a wonderful man entirely. He tuk half-a-crown off me-all the siller I had in my pocket. It's a terrible thing to go to hear a man like thon." "Eh, man!" said the other. "It's a' that. But I had heard him afore. So or e'er I ganged to the church I tuk all the money out of my Sun- day breeks only ane bawbee. That's the way to work it. He's a terrible man, so he is." Mr. Winston Churchill has a double who is a waiter in a Plymouth hotel. Lord Charles Beresford also possesses a double in a waiter who is his exact counterpart. As a matter of fact, we probably all have doubles somewhere or the other, the Carpenter says .in the Daily Exprex*. King Edward had quite a lot. King George and the Czar of Russia are eerily like each other, and there is a gentleman in Massachusetts who is ex- actly like Colonel Roosevelt, even to the teeth and the smile.

"'Ware Baedekers!" should be the watch- "Word for custodians of free libraries from this time onward for the next few -months, says Wic Daily Chronicle. Artful tourists know the value of the book for whatever country they are visiting, and also its pur- chase price. Regardless of other people's needs, they have taken to borrowing it from a library for the whole time of their excur- sions abroad. Last year, for instance, one of a small party going on a trip through Switzerland and Northern Italy cut expenses by taking the Baedeker out of their sub- urban free library. They retained it during "the tour—for six weeks in all—and wrote' off the smiling fine when returning the book as one of the "incidental" expenses of the holiday. Sometimes one suspects the coming gCIlera- tion of artfulness. The boy approached his -parent, and said, Father, do you know the tide came up and carried off my comic paper?

It was at this point that an angry and inconsistent father proved that it could and ought, to have been helped. They had brought out the youthful prodigy to show the visitor what she could do in the matter of piano "pieces." The girl rattled off something showy, and the visitor listened with critical attention right to the final crash. Then she nodded with judicial appreciation.

Writing in "A London Diary" in the Nation with reference to the late Mr. Theo- dore Watts-Dunton, "A Wayfarer" savs: "Of his 'Avlwiii' I must speak with reserve, for I could never read it; it remains, I am ashamed to say, a book which is no book to me." "I am glad." writes a correspondent, "that £ A Wayfarer' is so candid, for I have never been able to finish Avlwin myself, and T have now presented my copy to a Y.M.C.A. library. But I wish that the admission of the ,t i the a d ni;ss i (?i-, of the writer in the Nation respecting it had been published sixteen years ago. when I bought Aylwin on the strength of a laudatory re- view which ran to .three columns of the literary page of the Daily Chrotnrle, whose editor then was—the present editor of the Nation!"

CALI. RIGHTS RBSBEVBD.] BIBLE STUDIES CONDUCTED BY PASTOR RUSSELL. I "CALLED OF GOD, AS AARON." The Lesson: Hebrews iv. 14; Y. 10. The Text:—"The Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost."—Luke xix. 10. To-day's lesson deals with the Priesthood of Jesus and, incidentally, with the priest- hood of his Church. He is the High Priest, or Chief Priest, of our profession or order, writes the Apostle. The Jews found it diffi- cult to understand how Jesus could be asso- ciated with the priesthood. God had con- fined the priestly office to the family of Aaron, of the tribe of Levi. Jesus did not belong to that tribe, nor did his disciples. How then could he have anything to do with the priestly office? St. Paul shows that, as the antitypical Priest, Jesus had offered up his humanity as the antitypical bullock for sin atonement, and that he had then ascended up on High and thus entered the antitypical Holy of Holies, appearing there on behalf of his Church, the antitypical under priests and the antitypical Levites. The Apostle argues that because we can by faith recognise Jesus as our great High Priest and know that he has sympathy for our imperfections, therefore we may come to him with great courage when overtaken by a fault, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in every time of. need. But these blessed assurances will be without force unless we can realise that Jesus is our High Priest in Heaven. Hence the Apostle's argument in our lesson demonstrates this fact. AARONIC PRIESTS WERE TYPICAL. I The Apostle reasons (v. 1) that all Jewish priests were taken from amongst their fel- lows and specially ordained, or set apart, to represent their people before God, offering both gifts and sacrifices for sins. In this arrangement the priests could sympathise with the people, because they were subject to the same weaknesses, and also had need of the forgiveness of their own sins; but none was allowed to take this office of him- self, God must call him. Thus he did with Aaron. So, the Apostle points out, it must be with the antitypical priests. Christ, the spiritual High Priest and his elect Church, the Royal Priesthood on the spirit plane, must also be called of God. "Christ did not glorify himself to make himself a High Priest." God honoured him in this way, say- ing in the Psalms, "Thou art My Son; to- day have I begotten thee" and again, "Thou art a Priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek."—Psa. ii. 7; ex. 4. On this broad foundation of the Divine call the Apostle declares that Christ is not a priest after the order of Aaron-an earthly priest; but although typified by Aaron in respect to an earthly sacrifice, he is really a glorified priest, after the order of Mel- chizedek, who was a king and a priest at the same time. So Christ in glory is not a man, not the sacrificing one, as before. He is the glorified Kingly Priest, as the King of saints, able and willing to succour them in all their trials and difficulties. I "IN THE DAYS OF HIS FLESH." I Then the Apostle shows the connection be- tween the glorified Kingly Priest beyond the veil and the suffering Jesus in the flesh (v. 7). When the Apostle writes, "Who in the days of his flesh," we are to understand that those days are ended. As the Apostle Peter explains, "He was put to death in flesh, but quickened in spirit," in the Resurrection. The Apostle Paul seeks to give us, as the followers of Jesus, confi- dence in his ability to sympathise with us in all our troubles. Therefore, he reminds us that Jesus "in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him that wa.s able to save him out of death, was heard in respect to that thing which he feared." Our minds instinctively recall the Master's experiences in Gethsemane-his prayers to God, his tears, his agony, and according to one account, his bloody sweat. The Apostle's suggestion is that the Master who had himself passed through such bitter experiences, is now in Heavenly glory and power, and will surely succour all his true followers, even though he may allow them to have Gethsemane experiences and buffet- tng-s of the Adversary. I AS A SON-NOT AS A SINNER. I The sufferings of Jesus, the Apostle points out, came to him not because he was a sinner, but because he was a son, and the Heavenly Father would prove his loyalty unto death, even the death of the cross. Only by such a test of loyalty could he be deemed worthy of the high exaltation de- signed for him. The things which he suf- fered not only were to constitute a sacrifice for human sin and make possible human Restitution through the Messianic King- dom, but were necessary to the Master him- self. As the Apostle says, he was made per- fect through suffering. Jesus was not imperfect at any time in the sense of being sinful. He was perfect, undefiled, in his glorious condition as the Logos, before he was made flesh. The assur- ance given us is that when born of Mary he was still "holy, harmless, undefiled and separate from sinners." His perfecting was of another kind. Our Lord had entered into a Covenant of Sacrifice—to prove himself loyal to the Father's will, even unto death. After the Master had entered into this Covenant of Sacrifice, his obedience would bring him life immortal, Divine; but any failure would cost him his ALL. Hence in Gethsemane his strong crying and tears were not caused by timidity in respect to the impending crucifixion, or anything that man might do unto Him, or by doubt re- specting the Divine power or the Divine faithfulness. The Master's fear was lest he should have failed to comply fully with all of the Divine requirements, and should thus not be accounted worthy of a resurrection. The Apostle says: "Ilce was heard in re- spect to the thing which he feared." He was delivered from the fear of death. From that moment onward the Master was the calmest of the calm, in all the trials and stress of that night and the following day. We cannot doubt that the Father assured him that all was well-that thus far he had proven himself faithful. LEADER AND HIGH PRIEST. On the basis of his own victory and ex- altation Jesus is now "the Author of eternal salvation unto all that obey him," says the Apostle (v. 9). The first salvation which this antitypical Priest after the order of Melchizedek effects is the salvation of the Church, a Little Flock, a^ Royal Priesthood. These are to be saved to the same glorious station which he himself has attained. Nor can they reach that station by any other road than that which he travelled. It is not possible for Jesus' followers to overcome in tlhe same absolute sense th it he did; for he was per- fect in the flesh, and they are imperfect through the fall. His followers must demonstrate the same Jieart loyalty that he man I same willingness to do the Father's will and to sacrifice every other interest. For t.hese the great High Priest appropriates the merit of his sacrifice, as a covering for all their unintentional blemishes and s hortcomings. Thus they mav stand in the Father's sight, complete in him, •>iul by and by in the glorious First Resurrection be made actually perfect. Additionally, he will be the Author cf eternal sal vation to as many of mankind as will obey him during his Messianic reign. All who will then refn-1 fo r^y him will be destroyed in Second but aU the w¡li!1,(:r :l'ld obedient will uliim-atelv be re- stored to the perf-'VIIion in which God I cr<Mf-d T'?'b??

r CRICKET CHAT. I [BY "THE TYKE. "] Ledbury second eleven were at home to Eastuor on Saturday, when the visitors, with a strong side out, Lriumphed by 50 runs. Ledbury had first knock, but made a dis- astrous start against the bowling of Court and Winter. H Smith and Corbett were the opening pair of batsmen, and the former after scoring five, was caught at cover-point off Court, who two runs later bowled Corbett. At 18 Jim Smith was lbw to the same bowler, and with the score unaltered, Clarke, who had hit two 4's and a 3, was caught at cover-point off Winter. With Guy Smith and Brown associated a useful stand was made, the former batsman doing nearly all the scoring, getting a four and two (j's by drives off Court. At 39 Brown departed, caught deep on the leg side. Guy Smith could get no one to stay with him for long after this, and the venture closed for 66, of which the skipper was responsible for 26 not out. Winter bowled as well as I remember to have seen him bowl. He did not send the ball down so fast as usual, but made the ball turn just that little to beat the bat. Although he only, secured three wickets, he bowled at one end all the time, and always had the batsmen playing. They could never score from him easily. Court secured four wickets, though he was somewhat expensive, and Phillips had three. Maddox and Court were the first pair of batsmen to do duty for Eastnor, and in the first over Maddox had a life, as he placed a ball from young Williams to fequare leg, but the chance was dropped to the exasperation of the fielder. Jim Smith bowled at the other end, and with the last ball of his first over bowled Court with a fast, straight ball which obviously deceived the batsman. C R Rowden succeeded him, and the batsmen gained the upper hand for a time, but at 46 Maddox hit a full toss hard back to Jim Smith, and retired with 19 to his credit. Phillips soon got going, but was bowled at 68 with a fine specimen of the "googlie" for 12. At 77 Rowden got his leg in front of a straight one from Jim Smith. The young batsman bad made 32 by good, stylish cricket, and he hit five 4's and four 2's. Harry Smith had relinquished the pads and gloves and taken up the attack at the pavilion end, and at 77 he had Crookes lbw. The only stand of note after this was by Winter (14) and Mullins (18), and the venture closed for 116, 50 runs ahead. Jim Smith bowled really weU for his 8 wickets for 59 runs, while Harry Smith had the other two wickets for 14 runs in nine overs, and gave another taste of his all-round ability on the cricket field. The ground fielding of the younger members of the Ledbury side left a good deal to be desired, in strong contrast to Eastnor, who missed nothing. ♦ Several of Ledbury's first eleven players were doing duty for Herefordshire Gentle- men against Worcester Gentlemen at Wor- cester on Friday and Saturday. T H Hayes, L P Hoult, F A James and W Williams were all in the visiting county eleven. Hayes made 4 and 0, Hoult 9 and 27, James 0 and 12, and Williams 8, while the Rev A E Green-Price compiled a brilliant 91 and 48 (not out), and C L Blew, of Red marley, 22 (not out) and 16. James took 6 wickets in the first innings and 3 in the second, and Hoult bad 1 in the first innings. The match was drawn, Herefordshire scoring 315 and 184 for 9 (declared), and Worcestershire 358 and 131 for 7. ★ Grice-Hutchinson, of the Upton team, was at it again on Saturday. He followed up his 60 not out against Ledbury with a score of 72 on Saturday against Worcester Railway. He scored his runs in about 20 minutes, and hit four 6's and eight 4's. Colwall entertained Barbourne on the Recreation ground, on Saturday last, when a most extraordinary afternoon's cricket was witnessed, as during the afternoon no less than 464 runs were scored. Two records were made for the ground, one the highest aggregate, and the other was the highest individual score ever made, the latter dis- tinction falling to A S Dagger, who, during his stay at the wickets compiled the huge score of 205. The previous best, I believe, was made some years by Douglas Smith, when playing for Colwall, and his score was 143. R C B Cave also scored 132, but Saturday's display has far eclipsed.all pre- vious performances. Dagger, who is a brilliant all-round cricketer, has done some good things for Colwall since he has been connected with the clu b, but of course his performance on Saturday will doubtless stand as a record for some time to come. Previous to his fine innings he performed a brilliant feat with the ball, his wily deliveries completely deceiving the Barbourne bats- men and he secured no less than 9 wickets for 23 runs. This dual success will probably never be eclipsed or equalled in Colwall cricket. The visitors on winning the toss took first innings, but from the starlrthey fared badly, none of the batsmen being at home with the deliveries of Dagger, and in just over an hour they were dismissed for the meagre score of 60, which considering-the excellence of the wicket was a poor score. Only one of the batsmen seached double figures, Dagger, aa stated, securing nine wickets. Colwall commenced with E Brookes and H Powell. The former was soon dismissed and Spills- bury filling the vacancy, the two young players at once commenced to hit out in fine style. The pair took the score to 60, thus equalling their opponent's score for 2 wickets. Dagger followed and again some good cricket was seen and the score rose rapidly, both batsmen hittieg out merrily and the score reaching 111 before Powell was bowled for a fine innings of 59. ♦ Dagger continued to bat finely, scoring freely all round the wicket. G B Saunderson proved a useful partner and runs came at a good pace until the latter was caught for 30. Two more wickets fell soon after and tJlen B L Mitford partnered Dagger, who com- pleted his century, a feat for which he was accorded an ovation. The fielders were now having a gruelling time, boundary after boundary being scored, and numerous bowling changes were tried, but met with no success. The score rose rapidly, and Dagger was now within sight of his second century. He still continued to play excellent cricket, and with Mitford also being aggressive he reached the half-century. At length Dagger reached his second hundred with a boundary, and on compiling this remarkable feat he was warmly congratulated. Just after, however, his brilliant innings closed for 205, which included thirty-one 4's and two 6' Although he gave one or two chances, his batting was briHiant, and he waa accorded a splendid ovation on returning to. the pavillion. B L Mitford carried out his bat for 63, the pair having put on 184 runs for the eighth wicket, and when time was called the score was 404 for 8.
