To the Editor: I noticed sonewhere recently-I would not say positively that it was in your columns- -an article on tne White House which contained severa l mis-statements. In the first pace it was stated the White House was first ccupied in 1809. and that its first occupant was President Madison. The fact is, its first occupant was President Adams, who took up his residence there in 1s00. The original mansion was begun in 1792. In 1S14 it was burned by the British and rebuilt in 1I1S. Another of the errors in the arti cle referred to was the statement that ready-prepared paint is used on the White House to make it beautifully white. I noticed this especially because I have used considerable paint myself, and wondered that "canned" paint should be used on such an important building, when all painters know that Dure white lead and linseed oil make the best paint. It so happened also that i knew white lead and linseed oil - not ready-mixed paint-were used on the White House, because I had just read a booklet published by a firm of ready-mixed paint manufacturers, who also manufacture pure white lead. In that book the manufactur ers admitted that for the White House nothing but "the best and purest of paint could be used,' and said that their pure wnite lead had been selected. Above all people those who at tempt to write on historical subjects should give us facts, even if it is only a date or a statement about wood, or brick, or paint, or other building material. Yours for truth, L. A TALK TO WIVES. Now while a woman is apt to sur round any action of her married life with sentiment, it is a fact that men, as a rule, have no sentiment what ever about money. To have to make .t is a daily necessity, to spend it is another necessity, unconnected with "feeling." A man does not pay out money for a barrow because he loves the hardware dealer, nor even be cause the hardware dealer needs the money to carry on his business, nor because he ought to give some comi pensation for the harrow when he benefits by it. He pays for it because he wants the harrow and can't get it in any other way, It's business. Now running a household is business, a:t should 'be put en that basis and that alone. The only remedy for needless humiliations to a woman, and need less irrita'tion to a man, is to have an allowance for necessary expenses. It can be done where there is any in come at all; it disposes of the little constant appeals that are so trying, and it spares the husband the intro. duction of the word "money" at home, when he is sick of hearing it and hav ing it on his mind all day. The plan is seldom put to him in this light, however, as a convenience and bur den-lightener to both, but as *a favor to her.-Mary Stewart Cutting, iD Harper's Bazar.

So. 35- '0G GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP. No Medicine So Beneficial to Brain .. . and Nerves. Lying awake nights makes it hard to keep awake and do things in day time. To take "tonics and stimu lants" under such circumstances is like setting the house on fire to see if you can put it out. The ribht kind of food promotes ref reshing sleep at night and a wide awake individual during the day. A lady changed from her old way of eating to Grape-Nuts and says: "For about three years I had been a great sufferer from indigestion, After trying several kinds of nmedi cine the doctor would ask me to drop off potatoes, then meat, and so on, but in a few days that craving, gnaw ing feeling would start up and I would vomit everything I ate and drank. "When I started on Grape-Nuts, vomiting stopped, and the bloating feeling which was so distressing dis appear'ed entirely. "My~ mother was very much both eredi with diarrhea before commenc ing the Grapc-Nuts, because her stomarh was so weak she could not digest her food. Since using Grape Nuts sne is well, and says she don't think she could live without it. "tis a great brain restorer and nerve builder, for I can sleep as sound and undisturbed after a sup per' of Grape-Nuts as in the old days when 1 could not realize what the:. meant by a "bad stomach." There is no medicine so beneficial to nerves anti brain as a good night's sleep, such as you can enjioy after eating Cra pe-NutLs." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Cro'k. Mich. "There's a reason." 'fHEl7 P U.LJ 1q A SCHOLARLY SUNDAY SERMON BY DR. W. S. LEWIS. Sabicet: The Secret of the Lord. Brooklyn, N. Y.-President W. S. Lewis, D. D., of Morningside College, Sioux City, Ia., is the vacation preacher in the Hanson Place M. E. Church. He began his services there Sunday morning and had a good au -ience. He is an excellent preacher. His subject was "The Fear of the Lord." The text was from Psalm xxv.:14: "The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him, and He will show them His covenants." Dr. Lewis said: Words, like men, are affected by the atmosphere in which they live. A word spoken 3000 years ago, but to another people, and in another clime. may fail to represent its highest and best meaning to those born in .anoth er age and under other skies. Alany years have flown since this word was spoken, and at least one of these in the text needs a word of explanation --fear. The good Book says: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom," but reference is made in the New Testament to the fact that per. et love casteth out fear. Thanks to the cross, the broken tomb, the de scent of fire which spoke on cloven tongue, for-a changed atlmosphere, in which our text may read: "The secret of the Lord is with them that love Him." The problem of knowledge is not that, but how, it is. A few small philosophers have doubted the fact that they knew, but that is carrying doubt to the point of insanity. We know, and we know we know; the how that we know is the problem. That an idea may be passed from one mind to another, may even by crys tallized into a word and remain pent up there from century to century, to break forth into another mind, to be reflected on, and on, through the ages. How this is, is more than we know. How that the mind may get a voice from the rocks so that the mountains shall speak and make themselves understood, and from the sky and from the sea. We know they speak, but how? That is the ques tion. Do you think that God, who has expressed His love in flower, in brook, in sky, should have exhausted all His resources to make Himself known as He speaks from nature? God speaks to the heart, the inner world is His realm. This is I-s throne, and He leaves His secrets there to become the seed of thought, of inspiration and of action. The great problem of hearing His word and then to translate it through the tongue, the finger tips and footprints, so that it shall become the living word to other folks, is the problem of the hour. To whom will God speak? We raise this question to answer It by asking you to whom do you commit the secrets of your heart? Do you tell those who revile you, who have no faith in you, who speak ill of you? Do you tell these the secrets of your heart? It's a great thing to be a friend, to know how to awaken the spirit of friendship in others. To whom do you commIt your secrets? The first quality of friendship Is the capacity for faith. You cannot trust those in whom you do not believe. You cannot Inspire in them the first note of friendship. The captious critic has no friends. The teacher who asks his pupil the hardest ques tions and criticises him because he fails to answer; the preacher who be gins his service and ends it with a spirit of critfcism, will not awaken in the heart the deepest, the best in spirations. We must begin by say ing: "I believe in you." We must have the capacity for seeing the best and the truest in people. We are commanded in the good Book that we should love one another, and I trust we do, but I am thankful that that does not Include that command that we must like everybody, for there are some folks whom It is hard to like, and of these are the thin voiced, pinched-faced, hollow-eyed critic. The first quality, then, is that of inspiring people with the idea that we believe in them, and if we have faith in others, they will have faith in us, for faith in the heart be gets faith in one another. It is so with God. If we would know Him and awaken within Him the power even of committing to us His secrets, we must believe, for with the heart the man beel'evern unto right-eousness -that righteousness which brings the image of God into the face of clay. .And then, too, we must tell our friends that we believe in them. I love flowers much, but pray you do not reserve them all for the funeral. Tell your friends you believe them; tell them that you love them. Speak with your lips, speak witfl your eye, speak with your flnger tips. Tell them you love them.. And God, too, is touched by the same testimony. "With the piouth confession is made unto salvation." Another quality ab-' solutely essential to friendship, ab solutely essential to true friendship with man and with God-and that is downright, sincere heart honesty. I heard a man say the other day: "My religion is to pay my debts." He answered the question of how much he is-worth by a round $50,000, and I said: "Of course, you pay your debts. There is one a little less great than the Almighty who would be af ter you if you did not, for Uncle Sam sees to that." You will pay your debts, but that is not the measure of honesty In the sense in which I speak it now. It is that sort of spir itual honesty that would blush deeps ly to think a falsehood or to harbor in the heart one moment a shadowy thought. It Is the kind of honesty that is born of a pure heart-a heart touched by the sunlight of* His infi nite love, a heart that is made clean by the power of His spirit. Such sin-, cerity as this, such downright hones - ty of purpose, is loved of men and God alike. It is the basis of trueI friendship with man and with God. I read a new text the other day. It was as old as the voice of David, but it came with a new voice, thus "The Lord made known His ways' unto Moses. and His acts unto the~ children ot Israel." This is the dis tinctian between Moses and the' ch dren of Isra'el. Moses undcerstood th act of God, but somne way he had.Jn soul-reach which recognized the finger of God uniting act to act to tell the sweet story of His love. I re member once, when the children of Israel were hungry, and Moses cried to God. In the morning, on the sand of the desert, everywhere, were litthe round, white loaves, and the Israel ite, standing in the door of his tent, said: "What is it?" "Manna." He ate the gift of God and his hunger was satisfied, and said in his heart: "This is the act of God." But Moses, looking on hungry Israel. satisfyn; its appetite, and looking up to the blue, said: "This is the way of God." Again, the Israelites cried for food. quails, and covered the camp. and the Israelites ate, and were satisfied, satisfied with the act of God, but the spirit of Moses would not rest until he saw through the act to the heart beat of God, and he saw in quails. in rain. in fire, everywhere, when God spoke, he saw His way. And once, when he climbed the mountain and stood in the presence of Jehovah for forty days, so catching the heart-beat of the Infinite that his face shone with peculiar glory, and he must needs cover it with a veil ere the chil dren of Israel would look upon him. Would you know the difference be tween Moses and the children of Israel? Their bones3 were buried in the wilderness, while he, long after, climbed Nebo's height. and, as the old tradition says, God kissed his sirit from his body and buried the clay with His own hand, and gath ered the soul to HIs bosom. We have heard from him once since, when or the Mountain of Transfigur ation with Elijah he talked with the man of sorrows concerning the death which He should accomplish at Jeru salem. Moses lives because he learned the ways of God. And would you know the secret of this in every day life? Some of you have said: "I am poor; I was born poor, and I have held my own." I saw a poor woman the other day. I was directed through a gate into a pasture, down over a hill, through another gate into a green plot of meadow, and there was a little lonely house. The chairs were poor, the stool was broken poverty everywhere, save only in the face of the woman. Every joint save one was stiff with incurable disease. and with the right hand she toiled busily on for the little ones taht gath ered about her feet. I thought that I would bring her a word of consola tion, but it was I that was consoled, for in the silence and sorrow of pov erty God had talked to her, and her face shone with His beauty, and her eye was bright with His glory. Her wor 's were like ointment poured for,.m. She lived in the heart of the eatitudes. And once I saw a rich man whose money came easy, and one day he heard the voice of God, and like a brook from the mountain he poured forth his dollars to sweet en and bless society, as the brook makes beautifulthe meadows through which it runs on its way to the ocean. He had learned.the way of God in riches. And this is what I would say whether the gift be poverty or riches, sickness or health, prosperity or ad versity, cloud or shine-they are but the acts of God. and out of these acts He allows us to weave the story of His love. and to learn the beautiful lesson of His ways to the children of men. Could I tell it all in one word, it is this: Can you remember the days when the smoke of the awful war be tween the North and the South was beginning to drift toward the ocean? Can you remember the last days of the war? One incident lingers in my memory, It was up in the Adiron dack Mountains. A boy had gone from the home early in the sixties gone to the war. Day after day a mother had prayed - prayed with such importunity, prayed with such' faith, that the boy might come home -but the winter of '65. in March, the snow had fallen so deep that it covered the fence, and then a thaw, and then a frost, and the crust was so thick that a beast could walk over it without breaking through. In the early days of March a friend walked fourteen miles over the mountains. He came to the home, and brought a paper, and said: "A battle has been fought, a battle down on the ocean at Fort Fisher, and a stronghold has been taken." And then his voice grew hoarse. He said the battle had cost us much, and then a tear came into his eye, and then he read a long list of the slain, and when his voice spake one word It read: "Charles L-, killed in the fort, buried In the trenches. And the woman did not cry out, but went up stairs and stayed there all the rest of that day and that night, and until the after noon of the next day. We thought she might never come down, for we had learned of Moses in the presence of God. But in the afternoon she came down, and her face shown like the face of an angel. In the secret of a great sob you may learn the se cret of God. The secret of the Lord Is with them that fear Him, and He 1:12 .Qw them His covenants. _... The Chief Duty. There are times when it is a duty to make money; but the man does not live wVhose chief duty it is to make money, nor whose chief atten tion can safely be given to money making. If one gives money-making first place, both his work and his judgment are undermined and un reliable. If he lets the opportunity to make m'e-'~'y be the usual deter mining factor in his decisions, he is building character on about as stable a foundation as that man who heard Christ's words and did them not. In at least nine cases out of ten there is a better reason for cr against any giver course of action than a money making reason. Those who will not believe this soon come to be r-ecog nized by their fellows as branded by the dollar r-ark. Ad such a mark is the sign of a slavery Nhich robs life of all its real rahness. Make a Friend of Christ. As we must sp)end time in cultivat ing our earthly friendships if we are to have their blessings, so we must spend time in cultivating the com panionship of Christ. Be Kind.

MENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2. Subject: Bartimaeus and Zacchaeus, Luke xviii., 35, to Luke xix., 10 -Golden Text, Luke xix., 10 Memory Verses, 42, 43. T. Bartimaeus cries aloud fo: mercy (vs. 35-39). 35. "Was come nigh." When Jesus and His disci ples were entering Jericho they met the blind men and Bartimaeus was healed. Mark says it was when they were leaving the city. "Certain blind man." Matthew says there were two. 36. "The multitude." In addi tion to the crowds that frequently followed Jesus, there were many peo ple on their way to attend the Pass over at Jerusalem. 37. "Jesus of Nazareth." So called because Naza reth was His home until He began His active ministry. IS. "He cried." He had evident ly heard of the fame of Jesus, and how He could heal the bliud. It is the chance of a lifetime; there is no time to lose; in a moment He will have passed. "Son of David." With the Jews this expression was applied to the Messiah. "Have mercy on me." The case of this blind man il lustrates well the condition of a sin ner and his efforts in coming to God. 39. "Rebuked him." Whenever a soul begins to cry after Jesus for light and salvation the world and the devil join together to drown its cries and force it to be silent. "Cried more." He was-in earnest, and op position only caused it to increase. II. Jesus restores Bartimaeus' sight (vs. 40-43). 40. "Jesus stood." The cry for mercy will always cause the Saviour to stop. He takes not another step; this is the first thing to be attended to. "To be brought." He could have healed his eyes at-a distance, but this is an important case and He decides to show His power before this whole company. "When he has come." Mark tells us that in his haste to re- ch Christ he cast away his gar ment. 41. "What wilt thou?" Christ knew what he desired, but He must know it from him; the divine plan is to ask if we would receive. "Lord." The Revised Version in Mark renders this Rabboni-my Mas ter. This was the highest title of reverelce. 42. "Thy faith hath saved thee." His faith was the medium through which the bl'essings of God were brought to him. It was not his ear nestness, or his prayers, but his faith in Christ that was commenged, and yet earnestness and prayers are also important. 43. "And immediately." It was not necessary to wait a long time for a gradual healing, but in stantly he saw. "Followed Him." As a disciple. III. Zacchaeus overcomes difficul ties (vs. 1-4). 1. "Passed through." "Was pass Ing through."-R. V. Zacchaeus evidently lived in the city. Tidings of the approach of Christ and His apostles must have preceded Him. 2. "Zacchaeus." He was a JTew by birth (v. 9), but because he had engaged in a business so infamous in the eyes of the Jews he was considered as a mere heathen (v. 7). "Chief among the publicans." At Jericho was lo cated one of the principal custom houses. The trade in balsam was extensive and Zacchaeus was evident ly superintendent of the tax collect ors who had the oversight of the rev enue derived from that article. As a publican he was a religious outcast. "Rich." And like many rich .men had not always come honestly by his money. 3. "Sought to see Jesus." At this time Zacchaeus must have had conviction of sin. He was not satis fied with his riches and his dishion est, wicked life. "Little of stature." And could not see over the heads of the multitude. 4. "Ran before." Laying aside his dignity as chief pub lican. IV. Jesus abides with Zacchaeus (vs. 5-7). 5. "Jesus-saw him." The truly divine part .was that Jesus fathomed his heart and understood its longing. 'Zacchaeus." Jesus called him by name, although He had probably never met him in the flesh before. "Come down." Those whom Christ calls must come down, must humble themselves. "Must abide." Christ invited Himself, not douotung a wecome. riow long He remained we do) not know. 6. "He made haste," eec. H-e had not ex pected to have the honor of being noticed, much less to entertain the Royal Guest. 7. "When they saw it." The crowd or 2ews murmured. It re quired courage to meet the preju dices of the nation, but Jesus always had courage to do L.he right. "To be guest." Thus recognizing Zacchaeus as an equal, socialiy. V. Salvation comes to Zacchaeus 8. '"Ihe half of my goods," etc. Some consider' this to mean that he had already done this, but It is far more probable that he now deter. mines to use his property for God and humanity. "If--by false accu sation." The "if" does not imply doubt; he had taken money wrong. fully. "Fourfold." This restitution the Roman laws required the tax gatherers to make when -it was proved they had defrauded the peo ple. 9. "Salvation come." Zac chaeus was saved - delivered from his past sins and made "a new creat ure." 10. "Is come to seek.". While Zacchaeus was so desirous of seeing the Saviour, Jesus was more desirous to see and save him.

John 9: 35-41; Acts 2G: 12-19. (Consecration Mceting.) Christ is the Light of the world cnly to those that can see something besides themselves. No blindness so hopeless as pride. - No vision reaches so far into spiritual mysteries as tie vision of humility. Here, as elsewhere, the last shall be first. All whose eyes are opened to spiri tual glories see wordly splendors thereafter as dull and cheap in com parison. Every vision is a command, and its word is, "Follow me!" Suggestions. Those that use their eyes habitual ly on distant objects gain great keen ness of vision; so do those that gaze much on heaven. The skilled astronomer can see marks on a planet's disk that would be invisible to ordinary eyes. There is nothing like practice to quicken spiritual vision. Physical blindness, or any other physical misfortune, may actually in crease the soul's powe . of sight and insight. One may as well try to see a land scape without the light of the sun as to get a knowledge of any spiritual truth without the light of Christ. Illustration:. After years of confinement in a dark dungeon, the prisoner finds light a torture to his eyes, and begs for his cell again. It is so with spiritual darkness. A needle's prick may blind us to the material universe, and the small est sin to the spiritual universe. A blind man's touch and hearing become so keen as almost to supply the place of eyes: but spiritual blind ness dulls all other senses. In ancient times a king's eyes would be put out by his triumphant enemy, to destroy his hopes of ever reigning again. So Satan blasts our spiritual vision and thus dethrones us.

Psa. 145. 4-12. The first Christian testimony must be to conversion, for that is the basis rf the Christian life. The Scripture idea is that men are dead--"dead in trespasses and sins"-and that if they are to have spiritual life they must be born into it as much as we are born Into natural, physical life. So he Saviour taught in his interview ' ith Nicodemus. In general, thiese are the steps into I w life. Conviction of sin; sorrow for sin; confession of sin to God; prayer for pardon; the exercise of faith in Jesus Christ as God's atone ent and remedy for sin. Then we eel a sense of relief from burden, the fargiveness of our sins, and the real ization that we are the sons and :aughters of the Lord God Almighty. There is often an ecstatic condition f soul in which one clearly recog izes the Holy Spiirit as the sealer of is covenant with God. He, the Holy Spirit, is the divine credential-giver, hose certification to the new birth and heirship to heaven, the receiver ould no more doubt than he could oubt his existence. That Is conver sion, as we use the term. It is a ranslation from the kingdom of dark ess into the kingdom of God's dear on. Not that all have the same de initeness of expereience, or that all re fully conscious of every step not d above; but in every case these steps5 are all involved in the passage f the soul from the death of sin over nto the life of righteousness. Nor oes every one have a positive know edge as to the exact hour when the reat change took place. With som9 he change may have come very *ietly. Every proposition among men must e established by evidence. Before very court of every namesid char ater this is true. If a point of con cious contact between God and men hs been found; if men may realize heir vital connection with God, then he world ought to be informed of hat fact, and, if the world shall de nand the' evidence, we must supply it. A church that -no longer testifies o a 'conscious justification and re eneation has lost its heavenly com ission. and can no longer be of any real service to the spiritual kingdom f God. Small Change. It is probable that all the 5-cent pieces now in existence would not have more than paid in cash fares cc lected en the New York City Rail way Company lines alone. According to the report of the State railroad comn mission, the number of cash fares paid in 1906 in New York- reached the enormous total of 1,171,151,698. At 5 ents each that amounts to ~5,557, 94.90. In the period from 1793 to the close of 1904 the total value of the 5 ent pieces coined in this country amounted to only $24.175,788.15. If all the 3-cent pieces and the 2-cent pieces and the cents and half-cents were added it would still leave a total in money far less than that repres-:nted by the ecllection of cash fares in New York. With a reasonable' al owance for the number of coins that must have been lost and destroyed in one va~ or- another since our mint~ as opened, it is probable that the totd amount of change now in this :'ontry, including all coins between dolar andl 3 cents, would not ex eed the sum which was collected last year on the New York tr-ansportation ines.
