The smuggler of drugs lias many tricks and wiles whereby he evades the law and introduces his wares Into the country. A favorite method Is to use artificial' flowers for concealing cocaine, opium, and other drags. One consignment of opium was smuggled through in the stalks of artificial pop ples, while cocaine lias been found in violets. Vegetables are even more satisfactory from the smuggler's point of view, for quite a large quantity of drags can be concealed in a hollowed potato. Perhaps the strangest trick of all was the use of a stuffed dog. Probably It would never have been also been known to barbor other things besides meat.

Western Newspaper Union. LESSON FOR DECEMBER 31 REVIEW GOLDEN TEXT—The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor.— Luke 4:16. DEVOTIONAL READING—Psalm 98. PRIMARY TOPIC—Favored Stories of the Quarter. JUNIOR TOPIC—Jesus Went About Do ing Good. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC —How Jesus Ministered to the People. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC —Some Characteristics of Jesus' Ministry. Since all the lessons of the quarter save one are from Luke, and the cen tral and unifying theme Is Jesus Christ, a profitable way to conduct the review, as' suggested In Peloubet's Notes, would be to assign the follow ing topics to the members of the class to make a brief report upon : 1. Christ's Mission to the World. 2. Christ's Helpers and How He Used Them. 3. Christ's Divine Power und How He Exercised It. 4. Christ's Methods of Teaching, fi. Christ's Love In- Its Many Mani festations. 0. Christ's Courage and How He Showed It. 7. Christ's Foes and His Dealings ; With Them. 8. Christ's Pity for Sinners. 9. Christ's Passing Through Human Experience. J ■ 10. Christ as a Missionary and an Organizer. 11. Christ's Relntlo'n to the Father. 12. Christ's Preparation for the Climax of His Life. Another way would be by summar izing each lesson, stating the out standing topic and teaching of each lesson. The following -lggestlons are offered : Lesion 1. The birth of John the Baptist, which from the human stand point was Impossible, was announced to his father, Zacharias. For his un belief he was smitten with dumbness. God expects of ills servant unques tioned belief In what He promises. Lesson 2. Jesus was born In Bethle hem Just ns the prophet lind 'aretold some 700 years before, and at the age of twelve yenrs he consciously en tered Into the services of God's house. Though conscious of His divine being and mission, He lived u life of filial obedience. Lesson 3. John the Bnptlst's min istry wus n preparation for the com ing of Christ. He fearlessly preached repentance nnd pronounced Judgment upon the Impenitent. Though a mighty preacher, he humbly declared that Christ was Immeasurably greater than himself. Lesson 4. Jesus Christ after Ills baptism was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. The purpose was to test the reality of the Incarnation. The re suit was complete victory—a demon stration of Ills ability to save to the uttermost all wlio trust Him. Lesson 5. Isaiah foretold the gold en age upon the earth when Christ will reign. Lesson 6. While Jesus was here He healed all kinds of diseases anil cast out devils. He authenticated His mission and proved His power to for give sins by miraculous deeds. Lesson 7. Jesus tntight the dis ciples the principles which should govern In His kingdom. Only those who have been horn from ..hove can love their enemies. Lesson 8. While In Simon's house at dinner, a woman who had been a notorious sinner anointed Jesus' feet nnd wiped them with her huir. The sinner's gratitude to Jesus for for giveness Is measured by the appre hension of sins forgiven. Lesson 9. Jesus went forth through out every city preaching the glad tid ings of the Kingdom of God. of salvation for sins through a cruci fied Redeemer Is truly glad tidings. Lesson 10. Jesus sent forth mis sionaries with the realization of the big task before them, and with power to perform supernatural deeds to thenticate tlielr mission, realize the bigness of tlielr task will earnestly pray that the Lord will send forth laborers Into His harvest Lesson 11. Jesus' reply to the ques tlon of a certain lawyer, "Who Is my neighbor?" shows that the all-Impor tant consideration Is not "Who Is neighbor?" but "How cun I show that I am a neighbor?" Lesson 12. A certnln rich man In his perplexity over his prosperity de elded to provide larger stores and set tle down to a life of sensuous indul gen ce. The one who lays up tresis ures on earth and Is not rich toward God Is a fool. The fact mi* Those, who my True Prayer. I hnve no doubt that the old Idea ot prayer, as a begging of God to set Ise laws to accommodate puny and often foolish men, will more and more fade away as men grow wiser. But I think that all this will only pre pare the way for true prayer—that .prayer* which seeks to get the highest spiritual good by conforming to the highest spiritual laws of our nature. This kind of prayer, I think, we shall no more outgrow than we shall out grow hope, or love, or gratitude, or as piration, or reverence, or tlie sense of dependence on a Higher Power, or the n< 0 d, |n our weakness and sorrow, to comfort and strength from some source higher than our poor selves.—Minis ter. » aside All In Christ.
