"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and
he shall sustain thee."-Ps. 4:22.
It is one of the marks of the in
spiration of the Psalms that we
turn quite naturally to their splendid
phrases to find expression for our
deepest thoughts. When our hearts
are stirred, the right words do not
always come to us. But we find them
In the Psalter. And, if I mistake
not, there is in the words of the
fifty-fifth Psalm a quite extraordi
nary appropriateness to our thoughts in
these great days of alternate hope and
fear, and anger and grief, and pride
and patience. It ls a Psalm for time
of war ; it Is war that the Psalmist had
In his thoughts. And lt seems to ex
press the varying moods which we ob
serve In. our neighbors, and of which
we are half conscious in ourselves, as
w? try to keep our mental sanity, our
Christian faith. The Psalm begins and
ends with prayer, for lt ls the outpour
ing of his heart's desires by a godly
man; but he passes through various
phases of thought as he prays-sor??
worthy of the highest Christian saint*
I liness-some not so worthy, for he had
the weaknesses common to our poor
, "Hear my prayer." So he begins". It
Is tiicJ Inevitable petition of an un
quiet soul. "Hear my prayer." But
the singer is afraid, for the danger ls
near. "The ungodly cometh on so fast;
they are minded to do some mischief,
so maliciously are they sot against
me." Ho is fainthearted, he doubts
the ultimate Issue. "My heart is dis
quieted within mc-fearfulness and
trembling are common upon me." And
he would fain escape from the horror
and misery of it all. "Oh, for the
wings of a dove, for then would I flee
away and be at rest. I would get me
away far off . . ." to the wilder
ness. if need ho. "I would make haste
to escape." "Oh. for the wings of a
dove !" The words, when set to the
luscious music of Mendelssohn, charm
the ear, and they find a response in
that desire for peace and rest which
is the emotion of every tender and
xkindly heart, "Oh, for ibo wings of a
dove!" Yet that is not the Christian
attitude to the stern realities of life.
It is a mood through which our
thoughts may pass. But it ls an un
worthy mood. It is not the mood of
faith, and another Fsalm tells us so.
"In the. Lord I. put my trust ; how say
ye then to my soul that she should flee
as a bird unto the hill?"
And so .wo pass on to the best
thought of all-thc thought which Is
the true key to the brave old Psal
mist's courage and hope. With it he
begins-"Hear my prayer." for that
is the prayer of faith as well as the
prayer of fearfulness. To it he passes
on- "A? for mr, I vi lli cull upon God,
and the Lord shall save me. In the
evening and morning and at noonday
will I pray, and that Instantly; and.
he shall hear my voice." For this ls
tho mood of prayer, of the consecra
tion of all high endeavor, of the hal
lowing of pain. "Cast thy burden
upon the Lord, and he shall sustain
thee." Here is no counsel for a weak
ling or a craven, hut of a brave man
who bas faced the worst. "Cast thy
burden noon the I -rd." It does not
mean that we shall leave the part of
dancer to others, and rest in security
the while, cr?ven-hearted. It is not
to sine. "Ob. for the wines nf a dove,
that there may be a way of escape."
Nor doe?; it mean that, as we fight, we
curso the while. To fight without
cursing in the cause of righteousness
Is to follow in the steps of the great
Captain of the Christian soul. And so
It means that wo shall best fortify our
spirits by prayer.
And for us all, even while our hearts
leap as we read of the deeds done by
those of our own blood and speech
for us all, the Psalmist's message is.
"Cast thy burden upon the Lord."
This is his final mood; tills is the Issue
of his thought. Ca.1 L thy burden here.
Thus only can we stay the throbbing
of our pulse and anchor our souls upon
a rock. The way may be long before
we reach the end of the journey. It
must be a way of pain. But the way
of the Croes is the way of light. And
this is the way of tho great crusade.
By the Archbishop of Dublin.
HER HANDS MADE BEAUTIFUL
An Old Legend That Reveals That the
True Source of Beauty ls
in the Heart.
There ls an old legend concerning
three young women, who disputed as
to who had the most beautiful bands.
One dipped her hands Into the pure
running stream, another picked berries
until her fingers were pink, a third
gathered roses until her hands were
made sweet by their fragrance. An
aged wonian, careworn and decrepit,
leaning upon her staff, eame, asking a
gift, but all alike refused her. A
fourth young woman, making no
claims to beauty, ministered to her
needs. The aged woman then said:
"It is not the hand that ls dipped in
the brook, nor the hand made red with
berries, nor the hand parlanded or per
fumed with roses, that Is most beau
tiful, but the hand that giveth to the
poor." As she thus spoke, her mask
fell off, her staff was cast aside, her
wrinkles vanished, and she stood be
fore them, an angel of Cod. ... It
matters not whether the hand gives
In mon?y, or In kindly acts; in some
cases, money would be quite useless,
while kindness ls priceless.-Selected.

Though she had suffered with
rheumatism so badly she could not
walk at times during three or four
year's, and had been troubled a great
deal with a number of other ail
ments, Mrs. J. T. Durham, of
2210 S. Main 'St., Anderson, de
clares that "Tanlac relieved my
rheumatism and other troubles got
me in good shape in three weeks,
a lot of other medicines had failed
to help me."
"I suffered with rheumatism so
badly I could not walk at times,"
continued Mrs. Durham, "and *for
several hours every morning when
the rheumatism wasparticularly bad
I would have to sit in a chair after
being helped from my bpd, and
then my muscles would get so I
could move ^.around by pushing a
chair before me. I generally was
able to get around enough to get

and I hurt all over and suffered
torture. I had rheumatism badly
for three or four years, but I had
been in bad hen 1th for about nine
years, when I bogan to take Tanlac.
I also was troubled a great deal
with indigestion and headaches, and
my nerves w'ere almost 'gone t0
pieces ' I could not sleep well, and
my system was w^ak and run down
and I felt tired out all the time.
"The Tanlac soon got me where
I rould do my housework, for it
quickly relieved the rheumatism

feel a pain in my bodv now, so

"The medicine also built up ray
system iu general, gave me a fine
appetite and relieved the indiges

hardly when I began taking Tan

anything I wanted. I eau sleep
'well now. and the Tanlac relieved
the nervousness. 1 sure do feel
fine, and the improvement in my
condition is due to Tanlac.

VITONA GIVES RELIEF.
"lt is simply wonderful, Mr. Hen

which to express to you just what I

"What has it done for me? Well,
to begin with, four years ago after
eating some canned beef, my entire
family was attacked with Ptomain
poisoning. ' I was sent to the hos

able to go home, but I soon found
out that I was not cured of that
trouble. I called in doctor after

to help me. I kept going from bad
to worse* until I last woke up to
the fact that I had a serious case of
stomach troble. The doctors pro
nounced it incurable. I suffered
every moment with awful pains in
my stomach, soreness of my bowels,
all my joints and limbs ached con
tinually. Of course, I couldn't eat
anything much, what little I did
eat would upset me so that I often
would have to call in a doctor.
"I had just about given up hope j
