The International Sunday School Les son for March 12 Is "Elijah the Prophet Restores a Child to Life," II Kings 4:8-37. BY WILLIAM T. ELLIS. HERE is alwave an iMisna somewhere to ta.ke uo the work of the Elijahs who have gone provided the Elijahs have done their duty. 1 a c.irora stricture upon any JJj business man. or teacher or preacher or public official is that he has raised up nobody to take his place. Some men with more vanity than visdom, think it a sign of their own Peculiar euccess that there Is nobody to carry on their work; really it is a sign of their own failure. A heavy Indictment lies at the door of the ministry of to day because in the face of a "al de cline in the number and quality of the students for the ministry there is noart searching. inf"'e ff to remedy conditions. The need for Ellshas is one of the sorest of our day; the best of the nation's young man hood should be giving itself to the world's highest calling. ' Earth was interested in the fact that Elijah had gone to heaven in a whirlwind- heaven was doubtless wore interested in the fact that Elisha Smlined behind. It is sad but true that the world forgets the dead in the affair, of the living ; there . are few .r.iri naves that are well cared for. loo much regard for the departed creates a China and a hopeful Bymptom in China, is the old graves which used to have prior claim over everything, are being removed to make way for schools and railroads. "The king is dead" " Never mind; "Long live the km''" life must be lived In today and for tomorrow, and if the old king "ha. ruled well the new king may do still better.

Carmel. often stopped at Shunem at the home of the lead ing family of the community, even as is the rule today. ' A trolden hearted woman presided over Sat home. Seeing that Elisha's visits were regularly recurrmg, she proposed unto her husband (for she seems to have been the stronger char acter of the two) that they build a guest chamber for this holy man. It was an upper room built on the wall and reached by an outside stair The honorable room is so placed in the east. At the present time I am travel ing in Bible lands, and being a. foreign er? I am always shown to the largest upper room In the khans, if these have any. But the rooms I occupy night after night are perfectly bare, except perhaps for a bit of matting on the tarthen floor. This model hostess furnished her guest chamber well. She not only gave of her house room but also of her thought to ner guei. -n. u a table, a seat, a candlestick where ran one find more than these in the real east today? Wise hospitality provides conveniences and comforts before ornamentatio... It is better to have sufficient covering on the bed than lace curtains at the windows; better to have a jug of drinking water at the bedside than a "Sleep sweet ly in this quiet room" motto on the wall; better warm snects in wmiei than a bureau cluttered with useless knick-knacks. Hospitality is of the head, as well as of the heart. Giving That Received. Countless wandering servants of God share Elisha's gratitude for the ministering comforts o hospitable homes. Even Jesus enjoyed the same heartening and help in the household of thoughtful Martha. The true beau ty of hospitality is known only to those who, unexpected and strangers in a strange land, have been taken from native khans or inns, or cheer less hotels, and made welcome in the homes of fellow countrymen. There Is yet another side to the story. The wayfaring guest brings with him a breese from the outer world. Forlorn Indeed is the home which does not often open its doors to friends and strangers; even to M15DREN OME IN THE H This great remedy assists natnre In all necessary physical changes of the sys tem, affords bodily comfort during the period of waiting, and preserves the symmetry of form after hahy comes.

Emerson says: "The ornaments of a. home are the guests who frequent it." The boon, especially to children, of having new interests and new out look imparted to their life by contact with strangers may not be easily measured. The Shunamite woman gave richly to God's prophet; but she got more than she gave. The Lord always sees that they who serve his servants are served by himself. The one hunger of every normal woman everywhere is for a son. Lack of desire for children is let us not balk at the strong words a sign of decadence and degenracy. Especial ly in the east is this so. The com monest congratulation to an oriental bride is the wish that she may have many sons. There is a beautiful hu man bond in the east's interest in one's children. Often has my heart been warmed by the oriental prayer that God would preserve to me my sons uttered in the same terms by high government officials and by the lowly peasants, as for instance, the vigorous Moslem centurion who is the keeper of the shrine of Jonah on the shores of the Mediterranean. Like all the Bible touches, the one concerning the Shunamite woman's deep longing for a son is true to the life of the land. Because hospitality always, in the long run, receives more than it gives, this woman's kindly thought for Elisha brought her the coveted heir. Knowing Where to Go In Trouble. New springs of knowledge and pow er and helpfulness are often opened by hospitality. Not uncommonly the guest becomes the benefactor of his host. One of many results of the Shunamite woman's kindness to Elisha. was that she had mad', a friend who was a helper in tlme-i of need. Consider the multitude whohave no friend or councelor to whom to turn in trouble. Pity the grief smitten who hava neither earthly comforter,nor acquaintance with the heavenly. They Indeed, "tread the wine press alone. Grief beyond words or man's con solation enters the home when a be loved child dies. At sucn a ume friends can but stand with bowed heads and pray for resignation and comfort. Only God, who gave un his onW iuid well beloved Son to death. can understand this sorrow. It came tn tviot hnmn in shunem when a boy, grown to years when he had wound his nersonalitv like tendrils about the hearts of his parents, one day, was smitten in the field, and cried. My heaci! Mv head!" The end that fol lowed smote the bereaved father to numbness, but the mother into action. Instinctively, in the hour of need, she thought of the man of God. Rich is the person who has a friend whose name ramps Instantlv to mind in trou ble. With splendid decisiveness the woman saddled an ass and started for Mt. Carmel. sixteen m'.es away, where she knew that Elisha was to be found ; for had he not spent the night in her truest chamber only a few days be fore? This was no time for servants; she alone must go and fetch the prophet himself. The woman's force of character is as noteworthy as her faith of conviction. In a crisis she was no dawdler; she wanted Elisha and no other; and that kind of spirit generally accomplishes what it seeks. The happy sequel of the story is familiar. Elisha followed hard upon the heels of Gehazi, and finding the child already dead, he entered alone into the room with the body; and there, as it were, called back the form to animation by imparting his own spirit to it. The God who gave and took away life, in this rare instance, restored it again. The child gone from the home i3 not usually called back; but in the child's place comes a sense of the nearness and reality of the blessed life wherein God is the vis ible Father in a reunited home. Loved ones across the border are the host ages given to heaven, to assure our own interest in and devotion to the life that outlasts the grave. In the Hour of Danger. Terse Comments for March 12, "First Aid for the Tempted," Heb. 2:14-18. BY WILLIAM T. ELLIS. "If thou shalt confess . . . thou shalt be saved" saved from the haunting fear that racks the Ufa of the cowardly Christian- saved from unrest; saved from many tempta tions; saved from misunderstandings and shame; saved from stagnation and smallness; saved to opportunities and usefulness; saved to witness bearing, and saved to life, glorious, abundant and eternal. Confession helps to constancy. It is easier to stand steadfast for Christ when our professions have led men to expect us to do so. It Is the craven Christian who becomes the inconsist ent one. It is easy to persuade ourselves that our desires are the will of God What we want to do is not often what we ought to do. We need to guard closely against this subtle temp tation to hide our duty behind our de sires. There is a helper whose office it Is to succor the tempted and myriads of soul scarred Christians can testify that in life's greatest spiritual bat tles, a power not of ther selves, has reinforced their feebleness, and help' ed them to come off cohquerors. In "sailing o'er life's solemn main," we may be guided by the unfailing compass of God's law, or by the shift ing needle of our own wishes. The one insures a good voyage and a safe The highest type of happiness Is reached by having children In the home: hut the coming of the little ones Is often attended -with appro- tension and dread. Mother's Friend it used by tne expectant mother In preparation of the ordeal, carries her through the crisis with safety. - ... . ' , miimab The penetrating and soothlne qualities or caking or we Dreaaia, auu m Mother's harbor; the other usually results in shipwreck. Omnipotent power belongs to him whose will has been lost In God'B will. Instead of our feebleness and failure, he gives divine strength and complete success. It Is easy to yield to temptation, much easier than to reist. But with each resistance comes added strength, and by the continual overcomings of sin's besetments Is a stalwart char acter created. God has promised grace to help in time of need. He will not suffer us to be tempted beyond what we are able. Therefore, we may trust him for victory over temptation. There never can be a reason why any one should go back on Christ. His strength will be sufficient in every crisis. No matter how strongly we may be assailed and tempted to deny the Master, he will provide grace to be true. All dangers are included in the dan ger of separation from Christ. The Journey into Is all down hill. the far country Wilfulness drives many persons In to the far country. Unwillingness to accept advice, to submit to proper re straints or to be satisfied with a nor mal life, has caused the ruin of many lives. Headstrong young: people, who feel big enough to do as they please, nno mat me ao-as-you-piease ' road leads to disaster. Sin's burden rolls off the kneeling pilgrim. Getting rid of sin Is such a great undertaking that no man -can accom plish it alone. We cannot save our selves. "By grace are ye saved through faith; and that Is not of your selves; it is the gift of God." The elimination Of sin from the life Is a gradual process. We may have our sins pardoned and he free from punishment for them in an Instant of time. Nevertheless even such a saint as Paul found that sin continued to aoound in his body. Yet by the sanctifying power of the Spirit the dominion of sin is Lessened constant ly, and we continually "grow in grace." THls is the Christian tov: that sin daily decreases In his life and Christ increases more and more After all. it is a nower outside of himself that makes possible the Christian's growth. Only by the Spirit of the Lord can men be changed into the divine image. Dependence on the Spirit is the first requirement of growth and of victory over tempta tion." Christ's mission was to save men to save them from littleness, selfish ness, sin and death. We may have help from above to conquer enemies below. A certain person has cultivated the habit of doing hard and disagreeable things simply because they are hard and disagreeable, and , for their consequent effect upon character. While there is something of the error or i-uruanism in this, it undoubtedly makes for fortitude of snirit and de cision of mind. Soft times and soft lives are not. a blessing, but a hard ship. They enervate the soul, and the only true measure of a mortal Is the measure of his soul. Whoever knows how to endure hardness is likely to be come a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

Dr. Christian F. Reisner, pastor of Grace Methodist Episcopal church. New York, is firmly convinced that churches nowadays should adver tise. "Advertising Is the most vital assist ant in the business world," he says. 'Of course there must be something back of it. A prominent 'orthodox' doctor declared the other day that all advertising doctors became bankrupt unless they had real ability. Truth must be told. What institution has more certain, fitting and needed truth to tell than the church Rush rules the hour. Materialism threatens to deaden heart life as frost solidifies water. Attention must be attracted to the fact and . need of spiritual growth if the aesthetic and affectionai natures are to remain. "The word 'advertise' occurs twice in the Bible and 'publish 100 times. Preach the gospel means publish the good tidings. There were no presses, and so Paul wrote letters everywhere, to be read and passed on, advertising the blessings of his religion. Wesley compiled dozens of books covering ev ery subject, printed them cheaply and peddled them persistently, his suc cessors, the Methodists, own the lar gest publishing house in the world, and their papers furnish no mean medium for advertisers. "Advertising is calling attention to facts. Truth is back of It all. The church can no longer exist by mere authority or get a hearin.-r by anti quated methods. It must be up to date in presentation oi iacts it must get. a hearing in tne ain causea oy me rush of the material world. "How shall a church advertise? Use the daily papers. Furnish them steady news in up to date Englisn, consonant with their best style. . Send in sermon Ask Your Grocer for "It Is Delicious" Just the right combina tion of high grade cocoa, sugar and vanilla to please the taste Be sure yon get "BAKER'S" with the trade -mark on the package ce, , the regulations imposed on the vide for tha fumigation of mall hairs. cials and all whose duties call them hite shrouds like garments and have a in iodoform. topics put to arouse sane curiosity, Speak on current happenings from religious standpoint. ." The old prophets aia it. jfeopie want to know what the church thinks. "Furnish the newspapers readable and appetite creating abstracts of ser mons in the simple language of the every day. Get all possible pictures of the church and its events in their columns. Carry a display advertise ment in a conspicuous place on Satur day. The great city church can Dro itably use an inch in some prominent magazine. Denominational organs ought to have regular news, so that other churches may be stirred to emu latlon and visitors may know and talk about the church- before coming to tne town." WYCLIFFE'S VERSION.
