HORSE'S SENSE TO RESCUE
Sample of Remarkable Equine Intelli
gence That Is Vouched for
Hamdanle, an Arab horse ow ned by
Pierre Ponafidlne during his travela la
the Moslem East, was a universal fav
orite on account of bis docility and
inteligence. Mr. Ponafidlne says, in
"l ife in the Moslem East," that it was a
pretty sight to sea him tease his groom
when the man was cleaning tho
stables. With his teeth he would sly
ly undo tho man's belt, extract his
handkerchief from tho capacious Arab
pocket, or take off his groom's hat
and hold It in his teeth high up almost
out of reach.
"Another time he bhowed an almont
human understanding. Mrs. Ponafl
dino was riding hitn. We were re
turning from a ride one evening, and
as we entered the town, we had to
raps through an archway and then
turn sharply into a narrow lane. JUHt
as we entered the arch, with my wife
leading tho party, a band of children
came rncing down tho lane, and one
after the other, as they turned the cor
ner, they ran into Hamdanle, who was
cantering and, as usual, prancing.
"I turned cold with horror as I fore
saw the awful accident that seemed
unavoidable. Tho wise creature un
dorbtood the danger as well as I did,
and in a second stoDned short and
f threw himself back sitting literally
like a dog on bi3 haunches with fore
legs well spread, receiving one after
another tho children who ran full Into
his arms, as it were. Hard as the
position was for horse and rider, he
kept it up until the last child had run
round tho corner into him. The lit
tlo ones picked themselves up, quite
unconscious of the fate from which
the horse's kindness had Haved them."

MAN THE CROWN OF CREATION
LESSON Ti:XT-C,.w:s l.K, IT; 1.7-9;
'.itlt.PEN TFXT "Ond rrrnti-d m:in In
li 1m own tmttpe." 0n. 1:17.
Ten times the words, "and God
said" appear in tho first chapter of
Genesis. God spake,, and 'twas done.
Now all Is in readiness earth and heav
en await his word, "snd God said let
us make man." It would seem as
though a conference was being held
before this momentous event. . Tho
"let us ma'Kc" la full of suggfKtlon.
That each person of the Triune God
head was present In creation we saw
In last week's lesson, and it is hero
still further Indicated by tho plural
form of the Hebrew noun for the
name of God. But what pattern shall
! we follow In the making of man?
Surely only the highest and best,
hence "in the image of God." This
does not necessarily mean the physi
cal image, but rather the intellectual
and spiritual image of God, see Col.
3:10, Eph. 4:24, John 5.25. God who
is spirit. (John 4: 2D) does manifest
himself in material form (see Phil.
2:6, Isa. 6:1-4) and similar passages,
and this form resembles the human.
But this "image" (likeness) has been
blurred and marred by sin, James 3:9.
It was, however? perfectly seen in the
perfect Man. Christ Jesus, see Cor.
4:4, Ilcb. 1:2, 3.
Science at a Pause.
How God created man we are not
told, except that he was "formed of
the duft of the ground," and to this
day the bodies of men and of animals
consist of the very same elements as
the soli which forms the earth upon
which they dwell. H is yet to be
proved that man came from the low
er animals, and It Is a scientific secret i
that at this point the real leaders
of science are at a pause. The dust
of our bodies is the same as yonder
stars, as the lily of the field, as that
which kings and queens are made.
But still there are higher heights,
for God breathed Into this man his
own spirit, verso 7, and from this
union of the body and spirit man be-
j.nn.n a Hrinn cnul Van a (nn.
necttng link betw een the material and
the Infinite, by the physical he Is re-
lated to lower nature and by the spir
itual ho is related to God.
If the theory of the rehabilitation
of this earth after the destruction of
the pre-adamite races is true (chap.
1:2-13), we now see God in his won
drous grace preparing a place for
man's especial abode, vv. 8, 9, 15-24.
Tho two accounts of creation in tho
first and second chapters of Genesi3
are not contradictory, and to make
them so one must read Into the nar
rative what is not there. The first
presents a concise outline of creation.
j the B0Cond an enlargement that con
i nect8 these events with tho region
, where man began to live, the starting
J point of tho present human race.
That Eden was undoubtedly In the
region of the Euphrates and the Tigris
rivers is pretty generally accepted,
though, of course, wo can only specu
late aa to tho ciadla of the human
After God hsd created Adam with
the highest nature the animals were
not fit companions for him. Nor could
he be tho beginning of the race of
man without or.o like to himself. Man
can attain his highest only as he has
human companionship (v. IS). Adam
had the power of ppeech, and an Intel
ligence, and was given thrlc;ht to j
name the animals of tho field (v. 19). I
But in ail this there was no compan-
ion for him (v. 20). j
Unity of Life. !
In tho first account is tho simple
statement that God created "mala and I
female.," but In the second we see ;
that man Is not complete without tho ;
woman. God's mode was to mako her i
"bono of his bone" (vy. 22, 23). This j
suggests the utmost possible unity ot
man and wife; unity of life, of soul. ;
of emotions, of homo, etc. Matthew .
Henry calls to our attention the worn
en was not taken from "out of his
head to top him, nor out of bis feet ;
to bo trampled under foot, but out j
cf his side to be his 'equal, from un- j
der his'arm to bo protected, andnea"1 j
lils heart to be loved." 1
Thu marriage relation Is tho most
pacred of all human ties (v. 21). It Is
the bent possible training and educa
tion in love, sacrifice, duty, victor
over evil, in all that is best in life.
These are the qualUitis needed to
build up the race. When one Is de
graded the other of necessity is low
ered. To understand the full meaning
of the marriage relation wo need to
comprehend tho relation of Christ and
his church. Eph. D:31, 32.
If, then, man lias such a high be
ginning, does not that very fact im
pose upon him a burden of responsi
bility to bis Creator? "Nobility means
obligation." and to renounce Is base
Ingratitude. Even as God said, "let
us make man," so by his power wo era
to continue tho work of making men;
who shall be complete in Christ Jesus.
Created in God's image, what a les
son to leave in tho inlnda of ourrchol
ars. Lost, marreA. obliterated by sin,
yet It Is possible to havo it restored
In Christ. Is that image bright or
dim? This is God's world, we are
God's children, created for him.

Rhinestone trimmings are promi

the simple outlining form suitable for
edging tunics, necks, Bleeves and edg

mousseline. Rhinestones in combina

some floral and scroll effects. Rhine
stone and pearl slides and ornaments
are used for catching up draperies.
Narrow Chiffon pink rosebud trim
mings continue to be fashionable. Fur
bands in skunk, mole, fox, ermine and
sable continue to be much used for
trimmings. Fur Is often used in com
bination with . metal with excellent
effect. An elaborate evening wrap or
gown may be trimmed with a light
weight metal band outlined with, a nar
row strip of fur.

SMALL COATS CF BROCADE
One of the Prettiest of the Winter
Fashions, With Trimmings of Odds
and Ends of Fur.
The winter fashions are getting
more and more alluring, and very
pleasing are the little coats of brocade
with their cutaway fronts and high
wayman cints. These coats, like oth
ers of the swallow-tailed and banded
descriptions, display an edging or
trimming of fur, Bkunk, apparently, be
ing first favorite. Many of us have
been hoarding short lengths of broehe
velvet or satin, and rejoice that the
present vogue gives us an opportunity
to utilizing them. If the length be not
quite sufliclent for a blouse we are
permitted to call into service a plain
satin for its successful completion, as
a combination of plain and fancy fab
rics is a fasionable alliance this sea
son. Dry velours 13 carrying all before
It, and in the finest quality is an ideal
fabric for princess tailored robes as
well as for coats and skirts. The
more severe the design the more suc
cessful Is the result, as one's furs
supply the requisite trimming:
Old Rose Moire Gown.
Moire silk is particularly handsome,
and has practically all the good quali

rose moire has u hiKh Napoleonic
