pect that she would lose It. Hut she felt It was her duty to make the ef fort to save her people, and she de termined to make the effort, cost what it might. By her own fasting and prayers and those of others she ap pealed to God for help, and He gave her needed help and protection. Wo should be ready to do our duty at all times, trusting God for help, no mat tor how great the danger may seem.

This is high commendation indeed, lie was faithful himself to God. lie must alBo have been faithful to all the members of his family. If such a statement as this could be made about each of us, this world would be very different from what it is; most homes would be different. If this were true of us there would never be any un kind feeling toward any member of the family, nor would any unkind word be spoken to or about any one of them. When this is the case in any family, there will be peace and blessing there and this state of af fairs will socn be known to others, and will exert an influence for good upon all those about us. Itiitli, Ruth 2:1-12: Ruth was will ing to make a great sacrifice for the sake of one whom she loved, and for the sake of Ood Whom she served. She left her family and friends, in order to go with one who was dear to her. She left her country in order to go to the country where God was served. She showed her love to God by serving her mother-in-law. We can glorify God by doing the unselfish deeds of kindness which present them selves every day. Paul, 2 Cor. 11:16-33: We think sometimes that our lives are filied ?with troubles more than we can bear, but when we read these verses and realize what Paul endured, and see him triumphing over them all, because he put his trust in God, "Lo! I am ?with you alway, even to the end of the world." Paul recognized God's presence with him at all times, and we can have Him with us also. Mary, I-uke 1:46-56: Mary recog nized the fact that she was in God's hands. She was ever ready to recog nize that whatever God sent her was for her good, and she praised Ilim for it. She had many trying experiences in after years, but she never forgot the greatness of God, nor did she aver turn away from Him. Men and Women Whose Lives Should Inspire lTs, Heb. 11:32-40; 12:1, 2. As we read the names on the honor roll of fame, as given us in this eleventh chapter, we may feel that these heroes are all so far above us in faith and in other characteris tics that it will be impossible for us to reach their heights. But if we will study their lives we shall see that they were men of like passions and of like natures as our own. Paul tells us how we may follow in their steps. We are to turn away from sin and look to Jesus. We need to look to Him not only for salvation, but for the help and strength to live each day as He wants us to live. . That" Is what these heroes of the faith did. CHARLESTON, AV. VA. Sunday night twenty members of the Christian Endeavor of the First, church went to Cabin Creek to assist in organizing a new society them. All were delighted to find there Miss Nourse, who will have charge of tho work for the summer. We had a very successful, interesting and helpful meeting. It is most encouraging to Bee folks come to a barn (as they do in Cabin Creek) to learn of Christ. The First church Christian Endeavor has "adopted" the new society at Cabin Creek and will make it its chiof benefactor for the coming year. Last week the "Live Wires" had an excep tionally interesting class meeting where one of its members, Eloise Shawkey, and her missionary aunt from Egypt, Miss Work, presented in dialogue some of the customs and in teresting facts regarding Egypt. The two performers very kindly repeated the dialogue last Sunday in the Young People's Division. WOMAN'S WORK. (Continued from page 6.) Auxiliary Plan for the women's work since the last meeting of Presbyterial. Not all have come into the plan, but a mighty effort was put forth through all the sessions to emphasize the plan, to clarify the difficulties, and so to inspire and instruct those who have not yet attempted it that all will come in during this Church year. Efficiency in Church work might well be the theme of the Presbyterial. There was noticeable decided improvement in the reports made by the secretaries of causes, and promise of still better for the future. The feature of tlio popular meeting of Tuesday evening, besides the very beautiful music furnished by the choir, was the address of Dr. P. W. Alexan der, President of Stonewall Jackson College, on the subject, "Christian Education." This was much appre ciated and enjoyed. The work dono by Miss Elizabeth K. Shields, of the Richmond office, was very fine, help ful and inspiring. She spoke of train ing the young of our Church for ser vice, in each aspect of the important subject, and was great in all. Mrs. Armstrong was very helpful along all lines, for she is a woman of marked ability and enthusiasm for her work. The officers were all re-elected, a few changes only having to be made in the personnel of tlio secretaries of causes. Tho hospitality of the hostess church was abundant and cordial, tho sense of fellowship being strong and lovely. It was indeed a successful, enjoyable meeting.
