LESSON XIV, FOURTH QUARTER, IN
TERNATIONAL SERIES, DEC. 31.
Text of the Lesson, a Comprehensive
Quarterly Review-Golden Text, Px.
lxv, 11-Commentary Prepared by
Rev. D. M. Stearns.
[Copyright, 1905, by American Press Association.]
LEssoN L-Daniel and Belshazzar
(Dan. v, 17-30). Golden Text, Ps. xxxiv,
16, "The face of the Lord is against
them that do evil." This lesson seems
to be summed up in the words, "The
God in whose hand thy breath is and
whose are all thy ways hast thou not
glorified." Note the powerlessness of
human wisdom to understand the
words of God, but Daniel, a man of
God, knew them.
LEsSoN IL-Daniel in the ion's den
(Dan. vi, 10-23). Golden Text, Ps.
xxxiv, 7, "The angel of the Lord en
campeth round about them that fear
Him and delivereth them." All who
live godly will suffer persecution, for
it is only through tribulation we can
enter the kingdom, and the servant is
not greater than his Lord, but those who
know their God shall be strong and do.
LESSON IIL.-Returning from captiv
ity (Ezra 1, 1-11). Golden Text, Ps.
exxvi, 3, "The Lord bath done great
things for us; we are glad." The
events of this and other lessons in the
books of Ezra and Nehemiah were ful
fillments of the word of the Lord by
the mouth of Jeremiah, for "every pir
pose-of the Lord shall be performed"
(Jer. 11, 29). He put teth down one and
setteth up another and doeth according
to His will.
LEssoN IV.-Rebuilding the temple
(Ezra 1ii, 10, to iv, 5). Golden Text,
I Cor. 'ii, 17, "The temple of God Is
holy, which temple ye are." Israel, the
peculiar people of God, must have a
tabernacle or a temple that their God
may dwell among them (Ex. xxv, 8),
so, having returned to Jerusalem, they
lay the foundation and begin t, re
build, but there are many adversaries
to hinder the work.
LEssox V.-Power through God's
Spirit (Zech. Iv, 1-10). Golden Text,
Zech. iv, 6, "Not by might, not by pow
er, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord."
By Haggai and Zechariah, the Lord's
messengers, whom He had strengthened
by His word and by visions, the people
were encouraged, the work resumed
and the building finished (Ezra vi, 14,
15). So all that God has purposed
shall he finished in His time.
LEssoN VI.-Fsther pleading for her
people (Est. iv, 10, to v. 8). Golden
Text, Ps. cxlv, 20, "The Lord preserv
eth all them that love Him." Esther,
the deliverer of her people, taking the
place of death on their behalf, cannot
but suggest the only True Deliverer
who died In our stead, who was made
a'curse for us that 'We might not per
LEssoN VII.-Ezra's journey to Jeru
salem (Ez. vili, 21-32). Golden Text,
"The hand of our God is upon all
them for good that seek Him." The
peculiar feature of his journey was
that, having boasted to the king of the
wonderful care of his God for all who
put their trust in Him, he refused to
dccept an escort, but relied upon God.
LESsoN VIII. - Nehemiah's prayer
(eh. 1, 1-11). Golden Text, Jas. v, 16,
"The effectual fervent prayer of a
righteous man availeth muelz." Some
thirteen years after Ezra had returned
to Jerusalem;. Nehemish was still In
the faroff land, and, hearing of the dis
tress in Jerusalem, was much moved,
and while fulfilling the duties appoint
ed him he gave himself to prayer and
fasting on behalf of his people and
city. After three months of patient
paying his prayer was granted.
LEssoN IX.--Abstinence for the sake
of others (I Car. x, 23-38). Go'Iden
Text, I Cor. x, 12, "Let hima that think
eth he standeth take heed lest he fall."
In our last lesson we saw, Nehemiah
fasting and praying on behalf of his
people, and this lesson teaches self
denial for the sake of 'others. This is
set forth fully also in Rom. xiv and Is
well summarized in I Cor. lx, 27, as a
subduing of self lest am- service should
be disapproved. See also uII, 14, 15.
LEssoN X.--Nehemiah rebuilds the
walls of Jerusalem (Neh, li, 7-20).
Golden Text, Matt. xxvi, 41, "Watcl
and pray." Here, again, as when the
temple was rebuilt, the enemies of the
Lord are very much in evidence, revil
ing and hindering, but by prayer and
watchfujness and patient toil the work
was finished and the enemy compelled
to admit that it was the Lord's doing
(vi, 15, 16). The people had a mind to
work (iv, 6), and each did the work
which was nearest to him (iii, 28, 29).
LEssoN XI.--Reading and obeying
the law (Nehi. Y-lli, 8-18). Golden Text,
Luke xi, 28, "Blessed are they that
bear the word of God and keep It."
There is no need -so great for the peo
ple of God as a knowledge of the word
of God and a meek reception of It and
a willing obedience to- It. It is the
business of the teacher and preacher to
call the attention of the people to
what God has said in His word, for
He has made it very plain (Deut.
xvii, 8: Hab. ii, 2).
LEssoN XIL.- Preparation for the
Messiah (Mal. iii, 1-12). Golden Texf,
al. iii, 1, "I will send My messenger,
and he shall prepare the way before
Me." Salvation is of the Jews, and
Israel must know the Lord before the
nations, as such, can. This will be at
EHis coihing in glory, which will be-pre
eded by the preaching of Elijah (iv, 5).
LEssoN XIII.-The character of the
Messiah (Isa. ix, 1-7). Golden Text.
Matt. 1, 21, "Thou shalt call His name
JES'S, for He shall save His people
from. their sins." Whether we con
sider Him as the Messiah of Israel or
the great head of the church or our
own personal Lord and Saviour. He is
all that He is said to be in this lesson,
and when we iknow Him as such we
shall want to make Him known.
To Save One's Bacon.
"To save one's bacon"-that is, to
make a narrow escape-is supposed to
refer to the Dunmow flitch. For many
centuries it w.as the custom at Dun
mow, in England, to present a filtch of
bacon to a married -couple of twenty
years' standing who would make oath
on the Scriptures that they had never
had a quarrel. To, come close to a
quarrel without an actual rupture was,

In Praise of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
There is no other medicine manufac
tured that has received so much praise
and so many expressions of gratitude
as Chamberlain's-Cough Remedy. It is
effective, and prompt relief follows its
use. Grateful parents everywhere do
not hesitate to testify to its merits for
the benefit of others. It is a certain
cure for croup, and will prevent the at
tack if given at the first appearance of
the disease. It is especially adapted to
children, as it is pleasant to take and
contains nothing injurious. Mr. E. A.
Eumphreys, a well known resident and
clerk in the store of Mr. E. Lock, of
Alice, Cape Colony, South Africa. says:

Give Your Stomach Rest.
mNothing will cure indigestion that
doesn't digest the food itself and give
the stomach rest. You can't expect
that a weak stomach will regain its
strength and get well when it is com

stomach should do. You wouldn't ex
pect a sick horse to get well when it is
compelled to do a full day's work every
day of the week. Kodol Dyspepsia
