"Why he should have become the
target of Fate is one of the mysteries
of life. His watch, which, aside from
his books, was his most valuable pos

any way with the tragic circumstances
of his death is a source of the deepest
regret to the unhappy donor."
This excerpt she hardly looked at;
but the following she studied care
"Judge Ostrander has from the first
expressed a strong desire that some
associate judge should be called upon
to preside over the trial of John Sco
ville for the murder of Algernon Eth
eridge. But Judge Saunders' sudden
illness and Judge Dole's departure for
Europe have put an end to these
hopee. Judge Ostrander will take his
seat on the bench as usual next Mon
day. Fortunately for the accused. his
well-known judicial mind will prevent
any unfair treatment of the defense."
"The prosecution, in the able hands
of District Attorney Foss, made all its
points this morning. Unless the de
fense has some very strong plea in the
background the verdict seems fore
doomed. A dogged look has replaced
the callous and indifferent sneer on
the prisoner's face, and sympathy, if
sympathy there is, is centered entire
ly upon the wife, the able, agreeable
and bitterly humiliated landlady of
Claymore tavern. She it is who has
attracted the most attention during
this trial, little as she seems to court

followed to save repetition; but they
were carefully conned by Deborah
Scoville. Also the following:

LESSON FOR DECEMBER 5
UZZIAH'S PRIDE AND PUNISH
LESSON TEXT--II (hron. 28:8-10, 15-21.
GOLDEN TEXT-A man's pride shall
bring him low, but he that is of a lowly
spirit shall obtain honor.--Prov. 29:23
Again we consider the southern
kingdom. No better character could
have been chosen to illustrate the
condition of rulers and people in the
declining days of Judah's glory. Uz
ziah ruled for 52 years and his reign
was almost midway between the days
of Solomon and those of the Babylon
I. Priest and Parents, vv. 1.5. The
name Uzziah means "God has helped
me," and no king ever had better ad
vantages in the way of parents and
counselors. To the influence of his
parents he yielded in his youth (v. 4),
followed the good counsel of Zacha
riah 'the prophet of God (v. 5), and
as long as he sought the Lord, "God
made him prosper." Ancestry and en
vironment are not, however, a guar
anty .of any perpetuity in character.
II. Pride, vv. 6-15. Uzziah or Azarlah
(marg.) made a fine start and his
reign, considered as a whole, was
one of the most brilliant in Judah's
history. It bears some striking.resem
blances to that of Solomon in that the
dangerous enemies became subject na
tions (v. 8). In the conduct of his
campaigns Uzziah "waxed exceeding
ly strong" (v. 8 R. V.) Uzziah also
greatly improved and strengthened
Jerusalem and gave much heed to
stock raising and forestry (v. 10). The
secret of all of this prosperity was
that he sought Jehovah. Christen
dom is not Christianity, yet it is a
fact that in those lands where God
is most highly exalted and most near
ly followed we witness the greatest
prosperity and men living amidst the
most comfortable surroundings. Seek
Jehovah, know his will as revealed in
hiu word, and do that will when
learned, is the only true basis of real
and lasting prosperity. Uzziah alsc
gave an exhibition of worldly wisdom
that he strengthened the defenses of
the nation (v. 9-10). Confidence in
God does not paralyze human energy
or make us presumptuous and care
less (I Chron. 27:25-31). Uzziah
brought the army up to a high point
of efficiency (v. 13-15), using the
best weapons known in his day. We
likewise, may be "marvelously helped'
from the same source and upon the
same conditions; viz., that we "seek
the Lord" (Eph. 6:10; Phi. 5:13).
Ill. Punishment, vv. 16-21. (1) Pride
-Uzziah's fall and shame is one of
the saddest chapters in history. Hit
strength became his ruin. "When he
was strong his heart was lifted up.'
Poverty, struggle and adversity dre
not passisorts to glory though they
have strengthened the moral fiber o1
thousands. The tempting tests 01
prosper!ty, gided, perfumed and at
tractive are, however, far more hard
to withstand. Pride always leads to (2)
Presurnption--Centuries before God
had warned men that prosperity
would iead to ruin (Deut. 8:11-17;
32:13-15) and Solomon also gavc
warning (Prov. 16: 18). The subtlety
of pridle as the gradual way by which
we come~ to look up)on our prosperit)
as the work of our own hands, ther&
by forgetting the source of our pow
er and becomring filled with a feeling
of our own self-sufficiency. The next
step was that U~zziah assumed to him
self those dluties (v. 16) which right
fully rand exclusively belonged to th<
prIiesthoo:I (see Num. 16:40; 18:7;]
Kings 12:33; 12:1-4 ; Heb. 5:4). (3) Pro
