A DAY OF DECISION.
HEADING LESSON-Joshua 24; Heb
GOLDEN TEXT "For Ood bo loved the
world, that he gave his only begotten
ton, that whosoever belleveth on him
should not perish but have everlasting
The lessons for tbls past quarter,
omitting tbo temperance lesson, cov
er one of the most Interesting periods
In Ntho history of Israel. In them
there is presented five of Israel's
greatest characters, Moses, Aaron,
Miriam, Joshua and Caleb; one of the
strangest characters in all history
Daallmi and the typical troubler of
tbo nation, Achan. We have pre
sented the strength and weakness,
victory and defeats, of four, Moses,
Aaron, Miriam, and Joshua.
The first of the scripture passages
presented for the day's reading lesson
contains the farewell discourse of
Joshua. In It he surveys Israel's his
tory from the days of Terah to the
moment they possessed Canaan, em
phasizing that In It all God was di
recting and operating. He then ap
peals to them to serve Jehovah and
to put away all other Gods. The al
ternative is, that with such evidence
before their eyes, if it seemed evil to
serve Jehovah, they had choice be
tween the gods their fathers aban
doned beyond the river and those they
had found in the land. As for him
self his choice was made, "as for me
and my house, we will serve the
Lord." After repeated declarations of
fealty on their part Joshua, entered
Into a covenant with them that they
ivere to serve Jehovah. The passage
taken from Hebrews ought to begin
it verse thirty,
Moses leads out of Egypt (a type
Df sin), through the wilderness ex
periences, but could not lead them
into the land; Joshua took up the
work where Moses left off and led
them into the .promised possession;
but he was not able to lead them into
that perfect rest which only comes
rom a perfect conformity to the will
3f God. The message of the Book
af Hebrews is that of the son who
fulfills all that these great leaders of
he past failed to do. He leads from
oondage Into possession and on to the
3nal re,st which remains for the peo
ple of God.
Omitting the temperance lesson
(Nov. 9) ,glx of these lessons deal
with Moses as the leader, and in five
we have Joshua as the leader of Is

The golden text Is peculiarly signifi
cant in its fitness as we close the

the fruit and flower of this new na
tion, Is epitomized In this the sim
plest yet the most sublime language
of the Now Testament. What Moses
and Joshua did In type and what they

Two women Queen Maud of Nor
vay and Queen Alexandra of England
are geographically commemorated In
tho now bouMi polar region so lately
placed upon tho map. Like honors
were accorded Boveral women In the
far north many years ago. Lady
Franklin bay, named after the heroic
wife of Sir John Franklin, la well
known through Its association with tho
tragic story of tho "Lady Franklin
Bay Expedition," under General
Greely, thirty years ago.
Another distinguished woman, Lady
Franklin's friend, Mary Somervllle, the
famous astronomer and mathemati
cian, gavo her namo to a tiny, frozen,
desolato dot In the Arctic seas. Tho
daughter of a flue old lighting admiral,
Mrs. Somervllle wao always keenly In
terested In ships, sailors and explora
tions. So when her friend, Sir Edward
Parry, was preparing for his third
arctic voyage, she laid in a large sup
ply of oranges, betook herself to her
kitchen, and made an amazing number
of jars of delicious orange marma
lade, which She sent to him as her
contribution to the ship's stores.
Three years later, when the expedi
tion returned, Sir Edward informed
her that an island had been named in
"Because of fame and friendship, he
says," she wroto, merrily. "But I be
lieve in my heart because of some
thing quite different less sweet than
friendship, perhaps, but certainly, as a
woman's achievement, preferred by
most men to fame. My mathematics
no! my marmalade!"
If Bhe did not so far outrank the
rest of her sex In marmalade as In
mathematics, Mary Somervllle was
none the less a very capable house
wife. She was an economical man
ager, an exquisite needle-woman, and
an excellent cook. As a young bride,
she won the approbation of Doctor
Somervllle's family, who shared the
contemporary prejudice against learn
ed ladies, by making, under the grave
difficulties presented by an Ill-equlp-ed,
ramshackle country Inn, the clear
and delicious currant jelly that the
fancy of a sick traveler craved.
"I never can forget," she recorded in
her Journal, "the astonishment ex
pressed at my being able to be so use
ful." Boy Sets New Page In Tragedy.
A boy killed seven persons in a
farmhouse near Nantes, France, one
night recently. The crime, which Is
one of the most terrible recorded for
years was committed by a boy of fif
teen, Marcel Redureau who murdered
the seven people, and then went home
to bed. Redureau was employed by
a farmer named Mablt in the village
of Lo Landreau. He and the farmer
were working in the wine vat at ten
o'clock at night, when Mablt made an
observation to the boy which ho re
sented. Redureau, who had in his
hand one of the short sharp curved
knives used to trim the vines. Imme
diately Btabbed the farmer In the neck.
This Is the boy's own description of
what happened, as the police took it
down from his lips when thoy had
saved him from being lynched by the
villagers: "I did not deserve what
Mablt said to me. He had his back
turned to me, and I stabbed him with
tho knife. Then I saw red. I went
straight Into the farmhouse and cut
old Madame Mablt's throat. She
screamed, her daughter-in-law and-the
servant came running. I killed them
both. Then I went into the children's
room and cut the throats of all three
(tho children were eight, seven and
two years). I did not see the other
child, and I do not regret what I have
Some Interest was aroused In the
old country by tho announcement
that H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught,
our governor-general, recently paid a
visit to Ireland, no doubt to find out
for King George the axact position
of matters in the Emerald isle.
During his stay in Ireland the duke
was the guest of Colonel John Leslie,
veteran baronet who belongs to the
house of which the Earl of Rothes is
the head. Colonel Leslie, who was
formerly In the Grenadier Guards,
served in the Egyptian Expedition
and in South Africa. Ho Is a promi
nent man In County Monaghan, which
his father formerly represented in. the
house of commons. There is an In
teresting legend not accepted by tho
family concerning the motto which
Sir John Leslie and the Earl of
Rothes have adopted -"Grip Fast."
The story runs that as Queen Mar-
garet of Scotland was crossing a
swollen river sho was thrown from
her horse. A Leslie caught hold of
her girdle, whereupon the Queen cried
out: "Grip fast!" and, to mark her
gratitude, desired those words to be
retained as her rescuer's motto.
The Very Human Worker.
A curious type of labor dispute has
developed simultaneously in two dif
ferent directions in the shipbuilding
industry on the Clyde and among the
coal-trimmers at Cardiff. In each in
stance the trouble has been caused
hy tho fact that a number of work
era prefer the enjoyment of tthelr due
leisure to working overtime, even for
a considerable addition to their wages.
They are not willing to sacrifice their
half-holiday in order to gain more
money by doing more work, the less
so as they have to resist the pressure
of their womanfolk, who argue that
