'?tcher, addressing the juvenile class,
can either of you tell me anything
about Good Friday?” *“Yes, ma’am, [
can,” replied the boy at the foot of
the class; “he was the fellow that
done the housework for Rcbhinson
A critic relates that he was once
present in the cottage at Ecclefechan
Wwhere Carlyle first saw the light,
when an enthusiastic pilgrim asked
fu awe-struck tones: “And is this
really the room in which Carlyle was ‘
born?” and received from the gude
wife the answer: “Aye, an’ oor Maggis
was born here, too.”
Gilbert, the British comic opera
librettist, was lunching at a country
club when he found himself surround
ed by six or seven clergymen who had
been on a motor tour of the country
thereabouts. Pretty soon the author
of the “Mikado” was drawn into con
versation. When his identity was
known, one of the clergymen asked
Mr. Gilbert how he felt “in such grave
anl reverend company.” *“Like a lion
in 3 den of Daniels,” was the reply.
Dinner was a littla late. A guest
askad the hostess to play something.
‘Eeating herself at the piano she exe
cuted a Chopin nocturne. There was
still an interval of waiting to be
bridged. In the grim silence she
turred to an old gentleman on bsr
right and said: “Would you like a
sonata before dinner?” He zave a
start of surprise and pleasure. “Why,
yes, thanks!’” he said. “I had a courle
on my way here, but I think I could
~ @tand another.”
" Love of tobacco and wisdom often g 0
together. Prince Bismarck was wont to
boast that he had in something like 50
years consumed over 100,000 cigars, a
number that works out an average of
five a day—no great feat perhaps for one
who was at one period a “‘chain” smoker,
lighting each cigar from the glowing
stunmip of the one just enjoyed.
Edison, the great inventor, must hold
a superior record. Ten cigars a day are
khis normal allowance, but when deeply
absorbed in work he finds double that
number necessary to stimulate his brain.
Even more in a day used that celebrated
singer, Morio, to dispose of; but his day
began with dawn and concluded not un
til, sleep overpowering him, the still
burning Havana slipped from his lips.
* Berlin has recently lost one of her
most ardent and methodical devotees
of the fragrant weed by the death of
Herr Grunn, whose daily allowance oy
tobacco consisted of six pipes, six cigars
and six cigarettes. This amount he
never varied, save on his birthday, when
it was doubled, and on New Year’s day,
which, on thé principle of starting the
year temperately, was gept as a day of
total abstinence.
. Without a cigar Edwin Booth, the
tragedian, was scarcely ever seen. Even
while engaged on his professional duties
his beloved weed was present in the
wings, ready to be snatched from his
dresser’s hand for enjoyment during the
sometimes exceedingly brief intervals
between the exits and entrances. Twen
ty-five cigars a day were at one time his
usual allowance; an allowance, bow
’ ever, uot infrequently exceeded.

LESSON TEXT.—lsaiah 9:1-7; Memory
verse, 6.
GOLDEN TEXT.—“Thou shalt call His
name Jesus, for He shall save His people
from their sins.”’—Matt. 1:21. '
TIME.—The prophet Isaiah spoke the
words of this prophecy during the reign of
;Azgaz. the father of Hezekiah, B. C. 13-
PLACE.—At Jerusalem, the home of the
Comment and Suggestive Thought.
V. 1. “Nevertheless,” or “But.” Hav
ing tried to depict the spiritual dark
ness of idolatry (8:20-22), the prophket
turns, with this word, to present a
contrast. We will best understand it
from the revised version rendering.
“Dimness” or ‘“gloom.” Alluding tc
the political and spiritual darkness of
the time referred to. “Afflicted, . . .
brought into contempt,” etc. The
thought of the old rendering seems to
be that the ravages of the enemy grew
ever worse and worse, but the revision
rendering turns the thought to the
time when what was once contemptible
shall be made glorious. *“Zebulun,
Naphtali.” The names of the tribes
to whom the northern section of the
land had been assigned are given to
indicate what was later known as Up-
Per and Lower Galilee. It was in this
very region, upon which the darkness
first settled, that the light first shone,
for Jesus was reared in Galilee, and
there wrought his first miracle, and
there did his most successful work.
“By the way of the sea.” Probably the
region along the west side of the Sea
of Galilee is meant.
V. 2. “People that walked in dark
ness.” People of Judah. ‘‘Darkness”
is an expressive term for evil of ev
ery sort, for sin beclouds the mind
and blinds the heart. “Walked.” Were
living. “Have seen a great light.” The
“prophetic future” is used, the prophet
speaking as if what he foretold were
already accomplished. There is no hu
man soul so dark, from ignorance or
sin, but the light of Jesus can pene
trate its gloom. ‘“Shadow of death.”
The shadow of morai and spiritual
death, as wel] as national disintegra
tion, rested upon Israe! at this time.
V. 3. “Multipled the nation.” This
cannot refer to any remarkable in
crease in Judah’s population, but rath
er turns our attention to the fact that
the Kingdom of God, once represented
by the Jewish peopie alone, now in
cludes men of every race. Moreover,
Christianity tends to longevity. The
next clause is best in revised version,
“Thou has increased their joy.” The
people shall have increased comfort
and prosperity.
V. 4. “Broken the yoke.” The yoke
i{s a common figure of subjection. As
God released his people from the yoke
their oppressors at times put upon
them. so Christ releases his redeemed
cnes from captivity to satan. “Staff
of his shoulder.” The part of the yoke
which rested on the shoulders. On each
end of this a heavy load hung. The
taxation levied by a conqueror was
often thought of as a yoke. “Rod of
the oppressor.” It was not uncommon
for captives to be beaten with heavy
goads. ;
V. 5. Read in the Yevisea version.
“Armor, garments, blood.” All the
horrors commonly seen in war. ‘“‘Shall
be for burning.” They shall be utterly
destroyed, because war shall cease.
V. 6. “Unto us.” For our benefit.
*“A child is born.” The great Deliver
er will come to earth as a bake, born
of a human mother. “A son is given.”
He is none other than the Son .of God,
given to us not only for the few short
years he walked on earth, but as “God
with us.” to be our personal Friend
and Helper to-day. ‘“Government . .
. shoulder.” One in authority carried
his keys of office suspended over his
shoulder. Jesus shall b 2 King of men.
“Name.”” What he is in person and
character is revealed in the following
words, It was customary with oriental
kings to attach to their names a long
list of laudatory epithets. But when
one strives to tell the glories of Jesus,
words can but feebly enumerate them.
“Wonderful.” Jesus is wonderful in
His nature, in His words and works,
and most wonderful in His boundless
love. ‘“Counsellor.” He stands ready
to use His perfect wisdom in our be
half, counseling us what steps to take.
“The mighty God.” He does not cease
to be Ged by becoming man, but will
ever be the equal of the Father. “Ever
lasting Father.”
V. 7 “Incresss . . . Do end.”
Christ's kingdom goes on increasing in
numbers, power, influence and blessed,
ness. One day He will reign supreme
in all hearts. “The throne of David.”
Jesus was born, by lineal descent, of
the family of David. The promises ta
David are fulfilled in Him. *“Order it.”
Manage, wisely rule it. “With judg
ment an¥ justice.” King Jesus will
render just decisions. “For ever.” His
kingdom will never end. “The zeal of
the Lord.” “That mixture of hot honor
and affection to which ‘jealousy,’ ir its
good sense, comes near.”
Practical Points.
V. 1. .The blind walk in darkness at
midday; so, many walk in spiritual
darknes—l John 1: 7..
V. 2. The crowning evidence of God’s
love is its revelation to our hearts
through Jesus Christ.—2 Cor. 4: 6.
V. 4. Satan’s yoke is broken from
the shoulders of all who call upon
Christ for deliverance.—Rom. 6: 14. -
V. 6. We may turn to Christ for
counse! about the least as well as the
mcst important steps.—Co. 2: 3.
V. 6. Christ made peace, proclaimec
peace, hrings peace, bestows peace .that
passeth all understanding.—Eph. 2: L 3
Believes Heaven Filled with Men.
In Moncure Conway’s “Reminis
eences” is a story told by Helen Tay

they be all men folk up there in
Heaven and won’t know how to do
for him.”

The better class of druggists, everywhere, are men of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devote their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and
purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with physicians’ prescriptions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines.
They are the men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually inclndes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts of a first-class pharmacy and the finest and
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories and remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the medical profession, is usually their greatest
reward for long years of study and many hours of daily toil. They all know that Syrup of
Figs is an excellent laxative remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they
are selling many millions of bottles annually to the well informed purchasers of the choicest
remedies, and they always take pleasure in handing out the genuine article bearing the full
name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of every package.
They know that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
over-eating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup. of Figs, and they are glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to the excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and the
immense demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, but there are
individual druggists to be found, here and there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles
of the profession and whose greed gets the better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell the imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes have the name—* Syrup of Figs”—or “Fig Syrup” and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the package, but they never have the full name of
the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.>—printed on the front of the package. The imitations
should be rejected because they are injurious to the system. In order to sell the imitations
they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes
off on a customer a preparation under the name of “Syrup of Figs” or “Fig Syrup,” which
does not bear the full name of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package,
he is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it be large or small, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation and
and deception in one case be will do so with other medicinal agents, and in the filling of
physicians’ prescriptions, and should be avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that the great majority of druggists are reliable, we supply the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every
where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions
exist it is necessary to inform the public of the facts, in order that all may decline or return
any imitation which may be gold to them. If it does not bear the full name of the Company—
California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return the
article and to demand the return of your money, and in future go to one of the better class of
druggists who willsell you what you wish and the best of everything in his line at reasorable prices.‘
