[Copyright, 105, by American Press Atociation.]
This sickness and recovery of leze
klah in answer to prayer, which is giv
en in one verse in ll Chron. xxxii. 24,
is recorded more fully in our lesson
and with even more fullness of detail
in II Kings xx. But, as in last week's
lesson, the fact of its being three times
recorded indicates Its special lmper
tance and asks our special attention
to it. The testimony to Hlezekiab in
II Chron. xxxi. 20, 21, could scarce
ly be improved upon. but in the re
ord now before us there are many
sad things. the manifestations of the
deceitful heart that is in every one.
What a contrast between the people
whom the Lord now uses in His serv
ice. unreliable In soul and body. sinful.
well today, sick tomorrow and dead
the next day. and the same people in
their glorified bodies, without sin, nev
er sick, requiring no time for eating
or sleeping, serving Him day and night
unwearily and whole heartedly and
perfectly' Those who understand it
cannot but groan within themselves
waiting for the redemption of the body
(Roma. viii, 2"1.
How would you take it? Try to
put yourself in Hezekiah's place and
consider if you are ready for such a
message. Would you say, "Thank God,
glory dawns: to die is gain: to be with
Christ is very far better," or would you
do as Hezekiah did-turn your face to
the wall and weep sorely? Inasmuch
as our stay in these mortal bodles is
uncertain and health is no assurance
that we shall stay, it is certainly wise
to have our house in order always, all
,ur affairs as far as possible in a satis
factory condition, and, then, our sins
being washed in Hi nrecious blood,
we can say always, "Any time you
want me, Lord, I am ready" (II Tim.
We must remember that Ilezekiah
had not the light that we have. There
was no crucified and risen and ascend
ed Christ in his day. yet MIoses when
he was called in full health made no
comnplaint (Deut. xxxii. 49, 50; xxxiv,
57.. Isaiah. the prophet, brought the
message to ihezekiah. and he at once
gave himself to prayer, and before the
prophet h:ad left the middle court the
word of the Lord came to him, saying,
Turn again and tell Hezekiab, the cap
tain of -My people, thus saith the Lord.
the God of David, thy father, I have
heard thy prayer. I have seen thy
tears; behold, I will heal thee."
How rapid the communication be
tween earth and heaven, how beautiful
to have an anointed ear like Isaiah's.
in tune with God; to hear His wireless
messages even as. we walk the street!
How great the privlege and power of
prayer which can ake hold of God
eveu for the prolongation of our so
journ in a mortal body if it seems best
to Him: That a man who was about
to (lie should be up and about in three
days was nothing short of a miracle.
and yet, while it was a direct answer
to prayer, some means were used by
the prophet's orders (II Kings II, 7).
It does seem strange that some be
lievers should deem the use of means
inconsistent with the prayer of faith.
The king did not seem satisfied with
the simple word of God by the prophet
and so asked for a sign that the Lord
would do as He had said, The Lord
graciously gave him a sign and even
gave him his choice of two signs. How
gracious and wonderful Is our God so
to Indulge His unworthy and unbeliev
ing children! But let us not forget
"Blessed are they that have not seen,
yet have believed," and "Blessed is she
that believed, for there shall be a per
formance of those things which were
told her from the Lord." Let our mot
to be, "I believe God that it shall be
even as it was told me" (John xx, 29;
Luke 1, 45; Acts xxvii, 25).
The writing of Hezeklah after his re
covery from his Illness as given in our
lesson chapter contains many most sug
gestive sayings, such as verses 15-1T:
"He hath both spoken unto me, and
Himself hath done it. I shall go softly
all my years." The bitter in soul de
livered and oll sins put away. But
how easy it is to say and how difficult
to do! If all our good resolutions were
kept and all our vows performed, what
a good testimony for God there would
be. But, alas, how sad to read, "Heze
klah rendered not again according to
the benefit done unto him, for his heart
was lifted up; therefore was -'rath up
on him" (II Chron. xxxii, 25).
When the king of Babylon sent let
ters and a present to Hezekiah after
his recovery from his illness Hezeciah
proudly and boastfully magnified him
self instead of Jehovah, and displayed
all his treasures in his house and In his
kingdom. As a consequence of this
the prophet was sent to the king with
h message from the Lord, under which
Hezekiah again humbled himself and
thus averted wrath In his days. Let
us lay to heart that when visitors come
to us there is nothing we say to them
and nothing we show them that is not
noticed and heard In heaven. It cer
tainly does become us to go softly, to
humble ourselves to walk with God, re
membering Rom. xiv. 32; Eccl. xii, 14.
It is evident from II Chron. xxxiii, 1,
that during the prolonged years of
Hezekiah's life 3Ianasseh was born,
and were it not for his rep'entance aft
er a most wicked life we might ques
tion whether these added years were a
real blessing or not and whether it
might not have been said of Mlanasseh
as of Judas Iscariot. "Good had it been
for that man if lie had not been born."
It is wvise t'o desire nothing but God's
plan for us.
Adv ice About Eggne.
A writer in the Delineator gives some
sensible advilce about eggs. There is a
general Impression that eggs, acknowl
edged to be a complete food. may be
safely eaten on all occasions. On the
contrary, as the writer alluded to
points out, Invalids and young children
should never be given eggs unless they
are very fresh. Persons suffering from
biliousness, gastritis and several other
troubles find difficulty In digesting even
fresh eggs. Some physicians declare
that the slightest tendency toward
rheumatism makes eggs undesirable.
The white of eggs whipped to a froth
wit a little water is a good thing to
give fever patients, as a rule, but the
physician should be consulted before
e-en this is given to a sick person.

The iind You Have Always Bought
Is Hin Liking For Salt an Acquired
or a Natural Taste?
Some men who were camping in the
Adirondacks several years ago on
breaking camp in the autumn left an
old tub which was saturated with
salt brine. On returning to the same
camp the next year they found that
the tub had been gnawed until little of
it was left. They were not long in find
ing out what animal had done the
work, for the camp was overrun with
Canadian porcupines. At night they
became such a nuisance that the camp
ers were obliged to kill them to protect
their property. The handle of a paddle
was gnawed half through.
The explanation of their presence in
such numbers during that year. when
they had not been noticeably abundant
in the previous year. is that they had
made a rendezvous of the camp, being
attracted by the old brine tub. On
tils they feasted all winter and for
that reason were greatly pleased with
An interesting query is thi.: Is the
liking for salt an acquired or a natural
taste? Were they ever a4ble to gratify
that taste to any extent before man
gave them a chance to do so?-St. Nieh
The pills that acts as a tonic, and not
as a drastic purge. are DeWitts Little
Early Risers. They cure Headache,
constipation, biliousness, etc. Early
Risers are small, easy to take and easy
to act-a safe pill. Mack Hamilton,
hotel clerk at Valley City, N. D., says:
"Two bottles of these Famous Little
Pills cured me of chronic constipation."
Good for either children or adults.
PROFITS OF THE DUMP.
3ood Money In Many Old Things
That Are Thrown Away.
"I get,"' saId a Philadelphia dumnp
boss, --$4 a week, free rent and the dis
posal of any dump of value.
"Tin cans, for instance, belong to me
if they are dumped here, and I make
a pretty penny out of them. They are
turned, you know, into tin scidiers and
"Corks are another perquisite of
mine. Many and many an old broken,
bottle on this dump had a good cork in
it. I get S cents a pound for all the
corks I find.
."Old shoes are never too old to be
sold. They have always one good
piece-the piece over the Instep-that
can be used again. The smaller pieces
of good leather cut out of them are
made Into purses and wristlets.
"Eggshells also have value. Some
thing like 1,000,000 pounds of eggshell
are used every year in the manufacture
of kid gloves and print calIcoes.
"Dc you see those eighteen barrels
behind there? Well, each of those bar
rels contains its own variety of assort
ed marketable dumpage. Each will
sell when filled at a good price. There
are, I believe, fifty-seven varieties of
marketable dumpage, and some dumps
yield all the varieties. Mine yields
The Only Way to Cure.
To cure a cold when you have no
cough-to cure a cough when you have
no cold-to cure yourself when you
have both-take Kennedy's Laxative
Honey and Tar. The new idea, the
original Laxative Cough Syrup. It con
tains no oplates and is best for coughs,
colds, croup, whooping cough, etc.
Pleasant to the taste and equally good
for chitld or adult. Remember the name,
"Kennedy's" and see that the red
clover blossom and the honey bee is on
the bottle. Kennedy's Honey and Tar
is the original Laxative Cough Syrup.
Take no other. Sold by The R. B.

Curious Laws That Prevailed In the
The Florentine republic had a unique
method of dealing with Its too ardent
democrats. In 1293 the state passed
the famous "Magna Charta of Flor
ence," to curb the cruelty and rapacity
of the lawless nobles, .who, in defiance
of the law courts, were accustomed to
fog and torture their dependents at
will. The act practically disfranchised
these titled harpies by a clause which
excluded them from the signory-a
body in the state corresponding to the
British cabinet-unless they renounced
This curious provision prepared the
way for a still more extraordinary
clause, which enacted that any member
of the democratic party who made
himself obnoxious to the government
and was by them declared to be "guilty
of treason to the commonweshd" should
be given a patent of nobility and thus
at the same moment be raised In the
social scale and reduced to a poltical
noody at the will of the state.--Lon

The Nourishing Chestnut.
The London Lancet finds that the
chestnut is the most digestible nut and
cannot only take the place of the pota
to. as In France, where chestnuts, boil
ed and mashed like potatoes, make a
delicious dish, but in reality they are a
more perfect form of food. According
to the Lancet's analysis of the potato
and the chestnut, the latter contains
less water, more proteld, more fat and
starch, but less mineral matter, than
the potato and is more digestible than
the latter. Like the potato, also, its
nutrt~ve and digestive qualities are
greatest when baked or roasted.
One Dollar Saved Represents Ten Dollars
The average man does not save to
exceed ten per cent of his earnings. He
must spend nine dollars in living ex
penses for every dollar saved. That be
ing the case he cannot be too carefnl
about unnecessary expienses. Very
often a few cents properly invested.
like buying seeds for his garden, will
save several dollars outlay later on. It
is the same in buying Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remnedv.
It cost but a few cents, and a bottle of
it in the house often saves a doctor's
bill of several dollars. For sale by The
