object awl lhclresult of expositions A modern universal exposition is a collection of the wisdom anti achieve ments of the world for the inspection of the world for the study of its ex perts hy which they may make comparisons and deduction and develop plans for future improvements and progress Such a universal exposition might well bcr called an encyclopedia of society It constitutes a classified compact indexed compendium of the achievements and ideas of society in all phases of its activity extending to the most material as well as the most refined it offers illustrations cover ins the full field of social performance from the production of the shoes ou our feet and the pavement beneath them to a presentation of the rarest and most delicate creations of the brains and hands of men in what are called the fine arts of civilization The Universal Exposition In St Lou is in 3001 will be such a social ency clopedia in the most comprehensive and accurate sense It will give to the world in revised and complete details a living picture of the artistic and in dustrial development at which mankind has arrived and will actually provide a new starting point from which all men may direct future exertions It will present for the inspec tion of specialists in all lines of industrial and social endeavor and for the whichtheindustry art and science and what is very important it will offer these achievements of society these trophies of civilization in n highly selected ac curately classified array The creators of the St Louis Exposi tion have had the experience of all previous great expositions by which to plan and effect its ufcju organization The continuous and repeated burden of the message of experience handed down by all expositions has been more perfect more effective classification and arrangement of exhibits The classification of the St Louis Exposition has been prepared to pre seiit a Sequential synopsis of the lIe velopments that have marked maivV progress On its bases will be as sembled the most highly organized ex position the world has yet seen The St Louis classification is divided into 10 departments 144 groups and classes These grand departments in

depart ments equip him for the battle and prepare him for the enjoyments of life The raw material departments Agri culture Horticulture Mining and For theluses partment of Manufactures will show what lie has done with them the De partment of Machinery the tools he has used The Department of Trans portation will show how he overcomes distances and secures access to all parts of the world The Department of Electricity will indicate the great forces he has discovered and utilized to convey power and intelligence And so through the several departments to Anthropology In which man studies 1luau anti to Social Economy which will illustrate the development of the human race how it has overcome the difficulties of civilization and solved problems in which society Is involved Last is placed physical culture in which man his intelligence having reached the supreme point is able to treat himself as an animal realizing that his intellectual HId moral consti tutlons require a sound physical body to prompt them to the proper perform ante of their function Education is the keynote of the Universal Exposition of loot Each de partment of the worlds labor and deI velopment will be

though both are pointed out today ItIis possible however that the location just outside the city wall on the north is correct The place of a skull So called because of its resemblance to a skull Our word calvary is from the Latin calvaria skull Wise mingled with myrrh Sometimes supposed to have a lrink jirepared to deadeis the pain of the sufferer but neither the prIests nor the executioners seem to have ben anxious to spare Him pain Compare Matt 27i4 where He tastes it and then rejects it It had simply been sccther attempt to torture Him in His intense thirst by offering Him something which Iooled like refreshing drink hut was not They crucify Him Ry nailing Him tb the cross while it lay upon the ground and then raising it and dropping it into the socket prepared for it Crucifixion was then what hanging Is today the most disgraceful death a man could die and at tire same time the most painful The suffering of the tim grew steadily worse till death came not from a mortal wound but from the maddening pain and from hunge and thirst The Hist hours of execution were the worst slut these owing to His early death lesus was mercifully spared It Was the third hour Nine oclock in tne morning The superscription of Ills accusation It was common to put a placard above the head of a crucified man stating life crime Dilate could not resist the temptation to make the placard read so as to hurt the pride of tile Jews all he could On this point nad John 191922 In studying this section compare the attitude of the crowd even of the idle passersby with their ridicule and sneers with that of the dying man upon tile cross Jesus spoke seven times dur- Ing the ordeal Study His spirit from those utterances The first wOrd from tJe cross was Father forgive them for they know not what they do Luke 2334 the second Verily I say unto thee Today shalt thou be with me In Paradise Luke 2343 the third Woman behold thy son Behold thy mother John 1927 When the sixth hour was come Twelve oclock high noon There was darkness over the whole land till the ninth hour Lukes expression the runs light failing cannot mean an eclipse since an eclipse at Passover time that is at full moon is an Impossibility The conjecture that dense clouds hid the sun is common and is as suitable as any other Whatever the cause the evangelists saw in it a token of natures awe at the death of the Son of GodProf Rush Rhees At the ninth hour Three oclock in the after noon The fourth word from the cross was My God my God why hast Thou forsaken Me The words of Ps 221 Itwas altogether natural that Jesus Who had lived in the atmosphere of the Tie brew scriptures all Ills life slioul press the feeling of desolation and lone liness which swept over His soul in the words of the precious Psalm It was only a feeling howevera truly human cry and Jesus did not for a moment be lieve that God had forsaken Him The fifth word was I thirst John 1928 The sole expression of bodily suffer- Ing The sixth It is finished John 1930 and the last Father Into Thy hands I commend My spirit Luke 234C He knows that the Father has not forsaken Him And so with His thought still for others in the very hour of His death Jesus finished Hismisslon and attained rest The spectacle of His death impresses us almost more than His life with His divinity and we in stinctively worship The veil of the temple was rent in two The great curtain 20 feet long and 30 broad between the Holy place and the Holy of Holies The old mystery surrounding Israels God had vanished the age of typeshad passed the Holy of Holies was opened to
