Medicine and Ceremonial.
The physicians of mediaeval Eng
land, who were for the most part
monks, friars or Jews, possessed ai
large assortment of remedies, some of I
them borrowed from the By.zantine
physicians. others from the traditional
practice of the people. Christian phy
sicians, however. called religion to their
aid. None of their remedies wAas ad
ministered without ceremonial. While
the medicine was being co-poundied
the patient would say twelve tileS
over one of the psalms, beginnig
"Miserere mei, Deus," then several
paternosters, "then drink the dose and
%vrap thyself up warm," or he would
sing the psalm, "Salvum Me Fac,
Deus," then drink the draft out of a
church bell, the priest finishing the
cure with prayer.
Dr. Creighton remarks that, as the
maladies of the middle ages contained
an unusual element of hysteria, the
ceremonial may not have come amiss
as an aid to the treatment. Physicians
gained considerable fees by their prac
tice, which the people appear to have
grudged them. The satirical writers
constantly accuse them of greed, but
these charges were probably owing to
the prevalence of the idea, not yet
extinct, that as "medicine is from the
Lord God," the leech was not entitled
to a money payment.-London Spec

Stable, In Trees.
In the Bahama islands there flour
ishes a tree the roots of which attain
to enormous proportions, often reach

feet above the surface of the earth,
spreading in all directions, under
ground as well, in order to obtain sus

and branches. On the tree grow in-.
numerable balls of silky cotton, pre
senting an almost fairylike appearance
as they glisten in the sunlIght. They.
are in great demand for stuffing pil

formed by the roots are often quite as
large as fair sized rooms, and if roofed
over one tree would form a commo
dious dwelling place for a family. In
fact, it would be infinitely super'ior

be cut in the roots to allow of internal

How to 31ake Beeswaz.
The following recipe for beeswax
can be vouched for: After the combs
have been put through an extractor or
crushed and strained 'hrough a thin
cloth the wax is put in a copper or
porcelain lined kettle, with cold water
enough to cover it, and boiled for half
an hour, or longer If it seems neces
sary. When the wax Is taken from
the stove it is strained and poured in
a vessel previously dipped iil cold
water. To make a round cake of bees
wax pour the melted wax in a bowl
that has been dippect in cold water.
To make wax sheets use a board three-I
eighths of an inch thick, dampened
with warm water, then dipped In the
melted wax two or three times. The
board is next put in water to cool for
a little while, after which It is taken
out, the edges trimmed with a sharp
knife and two sheets of wax peeled off.
To make these wax sheets the wax
must not be too hot or It will crack.

LESSON XI, FOURTH QUARTER, INTER
NATIONAL SERIES, DEC. 10.
Text of the Lesson, Neb. viii, S-18.
Mernory Verses, 1r. 18-Golden Text,
Luke xi, 2S-Commentary Prepared
by Rev. D. M. Stearns.
[Copyright, 1005, by Americn Press Asociation.]
This lesson should be one of special
interest to all who are privileged to
attend Bible studies or conferences and
r.n inducement to others to do so. It
N; an account of a seven days' confer
ence for Bible reading, at which the
book of the law of Moses was read in
the hearing of all the men and women
who assembled from morning until
midday (verses 1-3, 18). Later in the
same month, on the 24th day, the peo
ple gathered again and read in the'
book of the law of the Lord their God
one-fourth part of the day, and anoth
er fourth part they confessed and wor
shiped the Lord their God (chapter ix,
1-3). It was a time of a real work of
the Spirit of God among theni, result
ing in obedience and In separation
An account of the seventh month,
with Its feasts of trumpets, atonement
and tabernacles, is found in Lev. xxiii
and should be carefully studied in con
nection with this lesson. The three
might be summarized in such words
as these: The proclamation of the
forgiveness of sins causing great joy
to all the people. See Acts xiii, 38, 89,
for a good comment.
Verse 8 of our lesson is, I think, the
best definition of good reading that I
have ever seen. I do not know why
it might not be applied to singing also,
especially to solo or duet singing, or
such like. B3ut, if so applied, what about
the singing that does not come under
this head? Well, away withit all. Let
it perisb, for there is no place for it In
the worship of God.
As to both the law and the prophets,
God took care that the words shoul4
be very plainly written, so that those
who read might run to obey (Deut.
xxv!I, ; Hab. ii, 2). The necessity
of understanding the word and how
to understand It may be learned from
att xiii, 19, 51; xvi, 9, 11; Acts vili,
30; Heb. xi, 3; Iv, 2. What shall be
said of the sermons and essays which
few of the hearers can understand, but
which are supposed to indicate su
perior talent on the part of the
speaker? Sad it is, but true, that there
are many who, like the old Scotch
woman, consider such efforts very
learned simply because they would not
presume to understand them.
The word of God is quick and power
ful, discerning the thoughts and intents
of the heart (Heb. iv, 12); hence the
people mourned and wept as by the
words of the book they saw their
sin before God (verse 9). The Spirit
of God convinces of sin and of right
cousness and of judgment (John xvi,
8-11), and without conviction of sin and
penitence there can be no real blessing.
The feast of trumpets on the frst day
of the mor.th was always accompanied
by an ofL'ring made by fire (Lev. 23
25), and all offerings pointed to Him
who we s made sin for us, through
whom alone there is forgiveness. The
people, being penitent are therefore
.horted~ to rejoice because of the re
demptIon provided, and, being nmade tQ
understand, they did rejoice and made
great mirth and helped to make others
glad (10-12). He who said, "I delight
to do Thy wIll, 0 my God" (Ps. xl, 8;
Heb. r, ',). said to His disciples the
night before He sufrered: "These things
have I spoken unto you that my joy
might remain in you and that your joy
might be full." "Ask and ye shall re
ceive, that your joy miglit be full"
(John xv; 11; xvi, 24). The joy of the
Lord is associated with the salvation
of His people in Isa. xii, 2, 3; xxxv, 1,
4; xi, 10. See also the joy In Luke xv.
There are many in our day who pro
fess to be the redeemed of the Lord
whether they are or not the Lord
knows-who seem to think that real
happiness is Inconsistent with what
they call religion and endeavor to find
authority for their gloominess In the
words, "Blessed are they that riourn,"
not noticIng the context. There are
also some who really do receive and
trust in the Lord Jesus and His great
atonement, but they do not seem to
find the joy of the Lord notwithstand
ing Ro~m. xv, 13; v, 1, 2; viii, 18; I
Pet. 1-S, and many other similar words.
It must be because of some failure on
their part to become occupied with
Jesus only and rest on His word.
As the people heard the words out
of the book from day to day they
learned that they were expected to
keep the Feast of Tabernacle (Lev.
xxiii, 35-43), and they did so for the
first time since the days of Joshua
(verse 17), and there was very great
gladness. This feast would recall how
God had cared for them all through the
wilderness j ourney'. See Dent. viii,'
2.4. We are so apt to forget His
mercies. There are so many for whom
nothing seems to be prepared (verse
1). God has made the same provision
for all, _ut He has put the matter of
making it known or passing it on In
the hands of those who have heard,
saying "Let him thct heareth say
come" (Rev. xxii, 17). ardI because we
who have heard are disobedient or In
iff~erent millions who might be saved
i they only knew about It are still
perishing. Well may He say to us,
"Is It nothing to you?" (Lam. 1-12.)
There Is a word in chapter vii, G4,
concerning some whose names could
not be found on the register, and they
were therefore, as polluted, put from
the priesthood. It is wholly a second
ary matter to have our names on a
so called church register, but it Is all
mportant to have our names In thoe
Lamb's book of life (Luke x, 20; Rev.
rx, 15). If they are not there an aw
ful doom awaits us, and if they are
there and we believe (Rev. xx, 15) how
can we help sending the gospel to
:hose who have never heard?

Ia such an Incoherent way that people
became skeptical of their truth, and
