LESSON FOR MARCH 2
GOD'S COVENANT WITH ABRAM
LESSON TKXT-fn. lii-E-IS.
GOLDEN TI':XT-"I1e 1h faithful thnj
promised " Ileb. '10:1:3.
t'ntll within recent years It was fre
quently asserted that Abram's battle,
as recorded In Gen. 14, "had not one
whit of proof," yet the archaeologists
have not only reconciled the apparent
discrepancies but have proven beyond
a question the accuracy of the rec
ord Abram's victory over the four
confederate kings Is a story rich with
I "After These Things." vv. 1-7.
God's word (v 1) came to Abram not
only as a counsel but for assurance
us well. So, too, our assurance Is his
word, I John 5:13. In the midst of
the uncertainty and the strife, for ve
must remember Abram never pos
sessed the land, God appeared to him
in a vision and said, "Fear not." See
Isa. 41:10. There In the midst of
foes (.Tas. 2:2.11 God promised to be
to Abram a shield and an exceeding
great reward. A "shield" for there Is
to the Christian life a militant side,
Eph. 6:13. 14, I Tim. 6:12. A "re
ward" which was far more rich than
any given by man. See 14:21, Prov.
Abram 'Was Human.
But Abram was. after all, human,
and we rend In verse 2 his question
about descendants, he being as yet
childless. Even so, however, Abram
was willing to count the child of his
steward as fulfilling the promise of
God. Not so with God for the prom
ise (12:3) was to Include Sarah also
God very clearly makes this plain In
verse 4, the heir was to be Abram's
lndped and not the child of another.
Put not only is Abram to have an
Tieir but the land in which he was so
journing as a pilgrim was to be his
and his seed to be as the stars for
"And hf believed." The great tpst
to this faith came later. Heb. 11:19,
"but here In this first distinct scrip
tural history of faith we find set forth
those principles that have governed
through all time. (1) The acceptance
of the word of God, e. g., to have our
trust built upon at supported by the
word of Jehovahsee Isa. 30:21; (2)
to act upon that faith so that our
course In life manifests the belief of
God's covenant, 12:1-4, la confirmed
In seven ways, 1. Posterity, (a) nat
ural, "earth," (b) spiritual, "heaven."
I'd also through Ishmael, Gnn. 17:18
20. 2, Blessing, both temporal and
spiritual: 3, great name; 4. Be a bless
ing. Gal. 3:13, 14: 5, "I will bless
them that bless thee;" G, "and curse
thm that rurse thee; 7, the families
of the earth blessed through Abram,
e g., through Ohriht, Gal 3:16
"And he believed In the Lord" (v.
6) Abram built upon the naked word
of God. he simply looked at that and
that alone, Rom. 4:20, Tt. V. All God
asks of us is for us to take him at his
word. So it is that as we take his
word about Jesus, he reckons that
faith to us as righteousness; no mat
ter how unrighteous we mav have
been, see Rom. 4:3-6; Gal. 3:6-7. The
one think that God demands is that
we believe him and his word,
II. "Whereby Shall I Know." vv.
8-18. The weakness of human faith In
dicated bv Abram's question (v 8) Is
answered by God giving to him direc
tions for the preparation of a sacri
fice Abram did not really doubt
God's word (v. 6), but he did desire a
confirming sign. Many today are
looking for aesurin? signs from God
v.hen his bare word should be enough.
Asking for signs Is not always safe,
T.nko 1:18-20, but as in Abram's case
God does give us a pledge a sign of
our inheritance, 2 Cor. 1:22, Eph. 1:14.
God gavo Abram. after ho had explic
itly followed his directions, a sym
bolic vision of himself. Someone has
suggested that the vilo birds of prey
(v. 11) are symbolic "of Satan, and
Abram. driving them away, a symbol
of one victory over evil, Jas, 4; 7.
God is always nearer to man and best
reveals himself when we are in the
midst ot sacrifice. God tells Abram
of those days of servitude on the part
of his descendants while they are to
be in Egypt, of God's Judgment to be
l)ro,u;ht upon that land and of their
Symbols of God.
Every detail of these predictions
nnd promises was fulfilled. In verse
15 ttiero Is presented the great
thought of tho need of preparation in
yputh for the future days of "good
old ago" also in this verso a sugges
tion of the life beyond the grave.
Tho smoking furnace and the flam
inn; torch- were symbols of God him
Eolf. Four centuries of opportunity
wero to be allowed the powerful Amo
ritos who now possessed the land bo
for the land came into bona-fide pos
session in accordance with the prom
ise, for God's Judgment was condition
ed upon tho "measure of their iniquity
being full." In the midst of this hor
ror of darkness camo God's final as
surance to Abram In tho symbolic
"flaming torch" which passed be
tween the pieces of the slain animals
typical of tho two parties to the contract.

important stations when one day 1 re

miles from where I was working, iwiO
take the place of an operator tlit'tr
who was 111, G, was merely a plaw
for the stopping of trains.
The day after 1 went to work at O
station I noticed a rough man looking
at me. It seemed to me that he was
saylnu to himself. "With that girl
alone a man who wanted to control
the station would have an easy time
of It." But I was nwnre that my
Imagination was highly stimulated
nnd I was In a condition to fancy
that any man who cast an eye on ine
was about to murder me. Neverthe
less after this man had gone I took
a revolver out of the drawer of my
operating table nnd hung It around
my waist, under m.v drcs skirt, with
n string, and in order that I might gel
at It easily I made a rip in a seam of
dicltis, and Gall Stones, obtain a bottle of this
wonderful Kemedy and put It to a test at once.

I could. I bad read accounts of how

I was that I would simply be removed

so long ns I made no resistance.
Hut train robbers were not the only
danger I feared. I conjured up every
conceivable Injury from n mouse to a
madman and invented methods of re

to the madman were very Ingenious.
But in no case did I dream of making
the slightest opposition unless in de
fense of my own self.
The sending of a woman to such a

Of William Sanderson, who died Feb
ruary 22, 1912" :
One sad year since Father left us.
Whom we loved and cherished dear.
Can we help but feel so lonely
When our Father Is not here f
No one knows how much we miss him
He was so good and kind and true,
God alone, for he knows hest
Called him to that home of rest.
'Twas a bitter grief j a shock severe
To part with him whom we loved so dear
Time was too short to say good-bye
To one we loved so dear.
We miss his coming footsteps.
We miss his loving voice,
florae is not what It used to be
Since he is not here.
He Is gone but not forgotten ;
And never shall bis memory fade
Sweetest thoughts shall ever linger
Around the grave where he Is ald.

was no one except myself In the sta

fore I could touch tho operating key
ordered me away from It. I went to
the other end of the little telegraph of
fice nnd was directed to sit down In a
chair there. I wns too frightened to
consider what they snld to each other,
but one of them sat down at the table
In a way that convinced me that he
understood telegraphing. The other
waited a few moments, then said
something to his companion and went
By this time I had regained some of
my equanimity ' Tho man sitting nt
the table presented his back to me.
If I had been a man doubtless he
would not have taken any such risk.
And ns it was as soon as his pal had
goue out ho turned and looked me
over, showing by his expression that
he wns wondering if I could commu
nicate In nny way with the outr.lde

j blllty of my doing so. and I suppose I

on a state of collapse.
I have often since been surprised nt
the rapidity with which I regained my
thinking power. The first great re
storative was a consciousness that, be
ing a woman and the men bent on
some crime Willi wnicil 1 wns roil
nected only as an operator. I vmis safe
from harm so long as 1 remained a
noncombatant. The first thing I no
ticed outside my own per-wi-lin wn;
the trousers the man at Hie table
wore. Tbe pattern wns the same n

was a possibility of my identifying
Presently ho began to cllc.lt the key,
and I read a message notifying the ex
press that was nearly due that the
road was clear. At this a marvelous
change came over me. I pictured a
conductor, an engineer, an express
messenger, one or nil, shot to death
and an express car robbed. The loss
of treasure did not move me. but the
I conjured up of these men lv-
In their blood made a
lion of me. I took no thought for my
self or the frightful danger I ran.
Seizing the revolver under my skirt.
I whipped It out and cocked It. Tbe
mon. hearing a click, turned instantly,
grasping a revolver he had laid on the
table There was not an Instant for
ronslderation. My own life and tho
lives of others shut out the horror of
my deed. I fired without nim. only In
his direction, but the bullet pierced his
brajn ITe fell, nnd In another moment
1 had sent the words: "Train robber
here! Keep away!"
That was the last of consciousness
for mt till I was aroused by n woman
who hod come Into the station to make
an Inquiry. The robber must have car
ried away the body of the man I had
killed, for it was not there. They had
ant waited for the express to come.
Since then neither tho road nor the
express company has been nble to do
enough for me. and I am considered a
heroine, but I shall never recover from
