Don’t Poison Baby. FORTY YEARS AGO almost every mother thought her child must hare PAREGORIC or laudanum to make it sleep. These drugs will produce sleep, and a FEW DROPS TOO MANY will produce the SLEEP FROM WHICH THERE IS NO WAKING. Many are the children who have been killed or whose health has been ruined for life by paregoric, lauda num and morphine, each of which is a narcotic product of opium. Druggists are prohibited from selling either of the narcotics named to children at all, or to anybody without labelling them “poison.” The definition of “narcotic” is : “A medicine which relieves pain and produces sleep, but which in poison ous doses produces stupor, coma, convulsions and death.” The taste and smell of medicines containing opium are disguised, and sold under the names of “ Drops,” “ Cordials,” “ SoothiDg Syrups,” etc. You should not permit any medicine to be given to your children without you or your physician know of what it is composed.

An Amsterdam avenue delicatessen dealer has reached the pinnacle of ad vertising Ingenuity in his efforts to sell more eggs than his competitors. His window displays the following sign: “Guaranteed fresh eggs 52 cents a dozen. Five cents for each bad egg returned.” The risibilities unconsciously rise at the thought of a respectable gentle man walking about Amsterdam ave nut carrying an egg that has been boiled and in the process of- breaking for breakfast has displayed unmis takably vicious tendencies.

D., Teacher of English Bible in the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago.) (Copyright, 1917, Western Newspaper Union.) LESSON FOR AUGUST 5. MANASSEH’S SIN AND REFENT ANCE. LESSON TEXT—II Chronicles 33:1-20. GOLDEN TEXT—Let the wicked for sake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.—Isaiah 65:7. The reign of Manasseh was the long est of any of the kings of Judah. It is strange that a wicked king should have the distinction of the longest reign. This can be accounted for, per haps, by the fact that the nation was in such a state that their idolatrous corruption needed to go to -its fullest development. It seems to be neces sary in a world of free beings, that their actions must go to a certain stage of development. It was so with the Inhabitants of Canaan before that land was possessed by Israel. Israel was kept in Egypt until the iniquity of that nation was full. In this case doubtless the Lord permitted this to go on until the idolatrous practices would become extremely obnoxious. I. Manasseh's Sin (vv. 1-9). Though he had the example of a good father, he with passionate endeavor gave him self up to the imitation of the heathen about him. This shows that grace is not inherited; a good father may have a bad son. It also teaches us that it is absolutely necessary to bring the grace of God into vital touch with our children, for that grace is absolutely essential to their salvation. Only his grace can counteract the downward pun or sin. 1. He restored the high places which had been destroyed by his father (v. 3). It is thus seen that he sought to undo the good work done by his father. 2. He erected altars to Baal (v. 3). The idols worshiped on these altars seem to have been images of licen tious appearance, provoking the indul gence of the human passion. There fore, with this worship was coupled the grossest licentiousness. 3. He introduced the star worship of the Chaldeans and Assyrians (v. 3). He even erected these altars in the house of the Lord, placing them on a level with God himself. 4. He set up Moloch in the Yale of Hinnon (v. G). He not only encour aged this worship on the part of oth ers, but he even caused his own chil dren to pass through the fire. 5. He practiced magic, witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit (v. 6). So gross were these practices that they did even worse than the heathen whom God had destroyed before the Children of Israel came into the land. 6. He rejected the Lord’s testimony (v. 10). Doubtless the prophets had again and again admonished him, but he seems to have turned entirely aside from such remonstrances. II. Manasseh's Chastisement (vv. 11 13). The Lord in grace used the As syrians to chastise Manasseh, so as to bring him to see his evil ways. He was captured, perhaps while hiding among the thicket of thorns (v. 11), bound in chains and carried to Baby lon. This was most humiliating. His hands were manacled, his ankles fas tened together with rings and a bar. III. Manasseh’s Repentance, (vv. 12. 13). Fortunately, the chastisement had its desired effect. Manasseh was brought to his senses and turned from his evil ways. • The steps in his re pentance are as follows: Auacuoii vv. ±4). xms was musi severe. Bound with chains and dragged to Babylon. AVhile this was severe, it was light in comparison with the sins which provoked it. 2. Supplication (v. 12). Manasseh had the good sense to cry out to God in this condition. It is the unmistak able evidence that God’s chastisement is accomplishing its purpose. AVe are Instructed in James 5:13 in time of af fliction to pray. 3. Humility (v. 12). This is a com mon characteristic of penitent souls. Those who come under the hand of God always recognize it in their hum ble walk. 4. Forgiveness (v. 13). As soon as God sees the signs of penitence, he turns in mercy to the penitent and grants absolution for sin. No one needs to wait long to receive his for giveness. 5. His kingdom restored (v. 13). Manasseh not only was forgiven, but he was actually restored to his king dom. Those who truly repent, God will not only forgive, but he will re store (Psa. 32:3-5). 6. Apprehension of God (v. 13), Through this experience Manasseh came to know God. IV. Manasseh’s Reformation (vv, 14-20). Manasseh was not content with merely receiving God’s forgive ness and restoration to his kingdom but he sought so far as possible tc undo the mischief which he had done 1. He strengthened the fortifications of Jerusalem, so as to make his peo ple safe from the attack of a foreigr foe (v. 14). 2. He removed the idols from the House of the Lord (v. 15). Through bitter experience he had come to knoM that an idol is nothing, that it coulc avail him nothing in time of deepest need. I -- i New Discovery! Takes Place of Dangerous Calomel—It Puts Your Liver Tii Work Without Making You Sick—Eat Anything—It Can Not Salivate—Don’t Lose a Day’s Work! j j I 'discovered a vegetable compound that does the work of dangerous, sickening calomel and I want every reader of this paper to try a bottle \ and if it doesn’t straighten you up better and quicker than salivating calomel just go back to the store and get your money. 1 I guarantee that one spoonful of Dodson’s Liver Tone will put your sluggish liver to work and clean your thirty feet of bowels of the sour bile and constipation poison which is clogging j your system and making you feel miserable.

PARAFFIN CAN BE CLEANED Do Not Throw It Away Because It Has Become Dirty, Says Specialist of Agricultural Department. Paraffin that has become unclean through usage in canning and preserv ing may be cleaned and reused. Don't throw it away because dirt and trash have become mixed with it. Many times it can be cleaned with a brush in cold water. If this does not remove all the dirt, says a specialist of the United States department of agriculture, heat the paraffin to boiling and strain it through two or three thicknesses of cheese cloth placed over a funnel, or -a thin layer of absorbent cotton over one j thickness of cheesecloth may be used as the strainer. One straining should be sufficient | ordinarily, but if the paraffin still is unclean, heat and strain again. Any paraffin lodging in the strainer may be recovered by heating the cloth and pouring the hot liquid into another strainer. I Girls! Use Lemons! | Make a Bleaching, !

LOOKED LIKE INVERTED RAIN Bullets From Machine Guns Gave Odd Impression to Aviator at Whom They Were Aimed. It will be easily understood, writes Mr. C. G. Grey, in “Tales of the Fly ing Service,” that before a bullet that has been shot straight upward begins to fall there must be a point where It stands dead still, and that for the last part of its upward path it travels very slowly. One officer of my acquaint ance told me, after some months of war, that his most curious experience was when once, and once only, he dis covered the exact extreme range point. He was flying along quite peacefully on a bright sunny morning at an alti tude of a little over 8,000 feet, without worrying about anything, when sudden ly he saw something bright dart past the side of the machine. He began to look about him and saw, a shade be low him and a trifle to one side, a whole stream of little bright things glit tering in the sun. Then he realized that he had just struck a level that happened to be the extreme vertical range of a machine gun that was making uncommonly good shooting. Other bullets from rifles and other machine guns also flashed into view as he flew along, and when his eyes caught the right focus he could follow the slow, topmost part of their movement for a considerable distance. “It looked.” he said, “just as if it were raining upward.” and the phenomenon was so novel that he quite forgot for a time that the “raindrops” Indicated that he was unpopular with someone below.—Youth's Companion. A Ready-Witted Parson. The evening lesson was from the Book of Job and the minister had just read: “Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out,” when Immediately the church was In total darkness.” “Brethren,” said the minister with scarcely a moment’s pause, “In view of the sudden and startling fulfillment of this prophecy, we will spend a few minutes in silent prayer for the elec tric lighting company.”—Boston Tran script. That Solemn Expression. Two sailors were coming along the sidewalk just as a newly wedded cou ple came out of the church to enter an automobile. Said one sailor: “There goes another poor devil launched upon the sea of matrimony.” “Yes,” said the other, “and he looks as if he expected to strike a mine any minute.”—Boston Transcript.
