July 16.—Manasseh's Wickedness and Repentance.—2 Chron. 33, i-20. "Then Manasseh knew that the Lord "He was God/' This is the very last sentence of the lesson today, but it stands out as the leading thought for our consideration. With this for a start let us see how King Manasseh had impressed on his heart this all important thought. ^Ve fire studying today about the Kingdom of Judah whose capital was at Jerusalem. The last king we heard of -was Hezelkah, who was a good ruler, and brought about the observ ance of the Passover, and who was so energetic in upholding the true re ligion of "Jehovah. He was succeeded by his son, Manasseh, who turned out to. be one of the worst kings who had been at the head of affairs. He was simply "the limit" in his leadership of the people into the worst of idolatry He violated the purity of the great temple by erecting heathen altars in its courts. He set up a carved image in the house of God, and the record says, made the people even worse than the heathen living about them. Now this was not done without re peated warnings from God. The bible says "The Lord spake to Manasseh and his people, but they would not heark en." None will be surprised at what •then happened, for there was but one thing to be done to such a king, such a people then, and such a people now. Severe punishment came, in the form of the capture of the city of Jerusa lem by the king of Assyria. As for 'the infamous king he was bound and his nose pierced by a thorn, and a ring put through the hole and he was led about as a farmer leads a vicious animal. Then, like the prodigal son told of in the New Testament, the king came to see his true position, he humbled himself, besought God for mercy. His prayer was answered and in time he was again king over Jerus alem. In the light of this experience King Manasseh "Knew that the Lord He was God." Blessed indeed are those who do not have to go through sin, degrada tion, shame, rebellion against the bible religion to find that the "Lord is God." The king in question found this out before death, and was allowed to repent and try his hand at undoing the great evil he had done. But thou sands in the bible history, and today, seemingly have to find this after death comes to them. Towering over all history both bible and secular can be read in words of living .light, "The Lord He is God." We feel sure we see this in the history of our country, in the founding of the government on principles based on the liberty of conscience taught in the bible religion in the preservation of our national life, in the terrible civil war which scourged the South for the atrocities of slavery and the North for allowing the curse to exist through the years since it was recognized in the constitution. We feel that the hand of God was with the North in its efforts to see that government by the people and for the people was not shown a failure by the hands of the misguided South. What comes closest to us, however, is the fact that each reader must face the question of whether he or she is ready to shape their lives along the good and righteous lines of acknowl edging the right of God to rule in their hearts, or whether the opposite course is to be taken/and God defied, until crushing defeats, unhappiness, sink ings of conscience compel the rec ord to be written, "Then John, Mary, father, mother, knew that the Lord, He was God." It is needless to say that in the light of experience the only right way is to love God at all times. The history of Manasseh shows the mercy of God, in that he was given a chance to repent, and his repentance accepted. The bible states as to the king that he did his best to undo the wrong he had done. He commanded the people to serve God, broke down the idols he had put up. While this did much good, the record says, "Nev ertheless, the people did sacrifice in the high places." So in our day, one cannot undo in a few years the evil example of a Hfe time in sin. The right thing is to re-' pent and do the best possible, but how much better to have a clean rec ord ill the titfte. So although our ies son is about a king living over 600 y££rs before- Christ was born, his his tory makes for us one of the strongest moral lessons of the bible. May we profit by it.

EING king and queen does not mean happiness or the absence of wor ries and troubles. For Instance, the king and queen of 8paln are just now greatly concerned about the health of their younger son, Prince Jaime, born July 22, 1908. Though nearly three years old, the boy has never spoken, and there have been rumors that he is a deaf mute. He has been fragile since his birth, and It has taken great care to keep him alive. His father, the king, is not strong. Indeed, the statement that he has tuberculosis has recently been published, and it is certain that the youthful monarch—he is only twenty-five yean old—has been compelled to take the best of care of himself, and he spends as much time out of doors as he can. Prince Jaime is to be taken to Switzerland this summer, where it Is said that an operation will be performed in hopes of removing the difficulty with his speech. Nat srally the mother, who is a daughter of Princess Henry of Battenburg, youngest sister of King Edward VII. of England, is worried, as any mother would be under the circumstances. The picture above shows the unfortunate young scion of royalty and his brother, Alfonso, prince of the Asturias, heir to the throne. They hare one sister. Princess Beatrice, born July 21, 1909.
