The little horseshoe shaped rolls to
be seen in every baker's shop in the
world have an interesting history. In

Turks. They were about to enter the
town by an underground passage that
they had dug when the bakers, who
work all night in order to deliver hot
bread in the morning, gave the alarm.
The authorities were so grateful they
allowed them to manufacture a break

The sensation of sound, as is well
known, is produced by a certain to and
fro or wave-like movement of the air
striking upon the drum of the ear and
so setting It in vibration. Each sound
wave consists of two portions, in one
of which the air is compressed beyond
and in the other rarefied below the av
erage pressure. If two sound waves
are traveling in the same direction, but
one of them starts half a wave length
behind the other, the compressed half
of one will fall upon the rarefied half
of the other, the average air pressure
will remain undisturbed, and the two
sounds will combine to produce silence.
If a sounding tuning fork be slowly
rotated near the ear four positions will
be found in which the sound will be
barely audible. This is due to such In
terference of sound waves as has been

Glass can be cut without a diamond,
and the way is very simple. Dip a

the string and let it burn off. The
heat of the burning string winl weaken

it is hot plunge the glass under water,

[Copyright, 1905, by American Press Association.]
We should be very grateful that the
committee is led to give us an occa
sional opportunity to study prophecy,
but some teachers would be more
grateful.for larger opportunity In this
direction, inasmuch as prophecy is a
light in a dark place, to which we do
well to take heed In our hearts lest
our Lord count us foolish for neglect
ing so important a part of His word
(II Pet. 1, 19; Luke xxiv, 25).
The greatest of all names in Scrip
ture is Jehovah, which is used about
7,000 times and reveals to us God, the
Creator, in relation to man in right
eousness and redemption. God in
Christ, Jehovah-Jesus, who .was and is
and is to come. The name may be rec
ognized in the words LORD and
GOD whenever so printed-1. e., all In
capitals. In our authorized version it
is only translated JEHOVAH In four
places-EX. vi, 3; Ps. lxxxiii, 18; Isa.
xii, 2; xxvi, 4-and the Revised Ver
sion does not improve upon this, but
the American Revised, which all schol
ars admit gives the meaning of the
original better than any other trans
lation of the Holy Scriptures, has
given the name Jehovah its place In
the Scriptures to which It has an un
questionable claim. See it used forty
eight times in this one prophecy. When
we remember that "God is love," see
how, even in this name, love overtops
all other topics in the Bible, and see
in chapter 1, 1, 2, that the burdeN of
the word of the LORD to Israel is, "I
have loved you." Compare Deut. vil,
6-8, and see in John 111, 16; I John iv,
, 16, and similar sayings a new light
constraining yo to praise God for
such amazing love.
Israel neither knew nor believed the
love which God had to them, and so
they turned away from Him to wor
ship idols, the works of their own
hands, yet He sent them messenger
after messenger to convince them of
His love and, if possible, win 'them
back to Him, that He might bless
them In the eyes of all nations and
bless all nations through them. In
this last prophe-.y He tells them of
their sin, warus them of coming
judgment and yet assures them of
His unchanging love (111, 6) and sets
before them a glorious future If they
will repent. The prophets- all pointed
to a greater prophet who should come,
who would be also a priest and a king
(Deut. xviii, 18; Ps. lxxii, 11; Isa. x,
6, 7; xxxii, 1, 17; Jer. xxiii, 5, 6; Zech.
vi, 18; Ps. cx, 4), but he was to have a
herald te prepare the way before him.
See Isa. xl, 3-5, as well as our lesson.
We know from Matt i1 and Luke II
that John the Baptist was this herald,
and everything in the life of Jesus
proved that He was the promised Mes
siah of Israel, the Lamb slain from the
foundation of the world,
On earth, iA humiliation, He was a
prophet. Now at the right hand of God
He is our great High Priest, and at
His coming agan it will be seen that
He is a great King and His name
dreadful among the nations (1, 14).
John the Baptist was rejected, and
Israel rejected and ,crucified her Mes
sah anad shall not see Him again till
they shall say, Blessed Is He that coin
eth in the name of the Lord (Matt
iiE, 12; xxiii, 38, 39). Then, acknowl
edging Him and receiving Him, verses
3, 4, 12, etc., of our lesson shall have
a literal fulfillment. Compare Isa. xxv,
8; xxxv, 10; lxi, 6, 9, and the prophets
everywhere. It will be a time of judg
ment upon Israel's ,enemies and of
lessing upon Israel and upon all na
tions, but just before the great deliv
erance it will be a time of trouble for
Israel such as they never passed
through before (verses 2, 3; Jer. xxx, 7;
Dan. xii, 1-3; Miatt. xxiv, 21, 22, 29-81).
Then shail Mal. ii1, 18, be understood,
and it shall be seen that Mal. iv, 5,
refers to the real Elijah, as our Lord
Jesus said in Miatt xvii, 11.
But all Scripture, including all proph
ecy, Is intensely practical and to be
received in our hearts and mnad@ mag4
fest in .,ar lives. The redeemed of the
Lord are now to prepare the way for
His return by of'ering themselves unto
Him to be purinied and made meet for
His use, ready for any manner of serv
ice, that through them He may be
made known, His body completed and
His return hastened. When for a time
we are in the furnace of trial we must
remember that He is the reniner and
is dealing with us that He Himself
may be more fully revealed in us, that
the worlds through us may know Him
(Roz. viii, 28, 29; John xvii, 21, 23).
We are apt to wander from Him into
our own ways, forsaking Him, the
fountain, and seeking cisterns of our
own; then He is grieved and seeks
patienty and lo'vingly to win us bacir
to Himself (Jer. ii, 13; lii, 12-14).
He gives us the privilege of return
ing to Him somewhat of that which
He so freely gives to us, asking us to
yield to Him cheerfully a seventh of
oir time, and a tenth of all our in
crease, that thus HE' may bless us still
more and show.- Himself to others
through us as the one whose blessing
aleth rich without sorrow or toi]
(Prov. x, 22, and Rev. Ver). But we,
like Israel, selfishly rob Him and hold
fast for ourselves only all He gra
ciously gives us and thus prevent Him
from showing Himself strong on our
behalf. (HI Chron. xvi, 9). Blessing
more than we can find room for would
be ours if we were only grateful to our
God with common gratitude, and in
this matter He challenges us to prove
The catamaran, made of a hollowed
log, shares the popularity of the Mas
soola boat with the fishermen of Ma
dras. The rickety looking contrivance
can weather any storm in the skillful
native hands, and letters are sent by
this means to ships in the offing when
other communication with the shore is
impossible. The catamaran requires
steering with a paddle through the rag
ng surf, and, though the boatman may
be frequently dashed out of the rude
skiff by the violence of the waves, he
leaps into his frail bark again with the
efiency of long practice, and the cata
maran, flying over the crest of the
great billows which threaten instant
destruction, accomplishes the perilous
voyage in safety.

a man's errors than from his virtues.
Shll We All Die of Thirst?
After telling of the gradual drying
up of the great lakes and rivers all
over the world In an article in Cham
bers' Journal, J. T. Whitby continues:
"Everywhere in our own country, as
in others, water springs -are giving out
and water beds drying up, slowly per
haps, but surely. The increase of pop
ulation and the modern system of
drainage have of course a great deal
to answer for, but much of the drought
Is undoubtedly caused by the rapid
destruction of timber on all sides, for
trees not only attract rain clouds, but
preserve the moisture of the soil. While
It is impossible for puny man to con
trol the geological period through
which we are passing and whose char
acteristics would be, according to
some, the gradual disappearance of
water, it may be Inquired whether It
would not be advisable to postpone
that disagreeable moment of a world
without water as far as possible by the
better preservation of our woods and
forests and the persistent replanting

Raw White Potato For InSamed Eye.
The writer wishes to testify, from
his own. experience, to the efficacy of
the raw white potato when used for Ir
ritated and infamed eyes. It Is used
as follows, but care must be exercised
not to let the juice of the potato come
into contact with any cloth or clothing .
which it will ruin by turning black.
The potato to be used should be pared
and then scraped with a spoon Into
small fragments and a little water
added. This should be laid upon a
cloth which has been placed over the
eyes, and then the patient should open
and close his eyes as much as possible
so as to allow the liquid to have Its
effect directly upon the eyeball. T4
patient will find great relief In this
efective but inexpersIve treatment. Of
course the patient must be and re
main in a reclining position.-Stanley
