Our lesson this week and that of the last, are closely connected. This is good, for now we will know about the leading person spoken about without long explanation. We will again con sider King Josiah, the good ruler of Jerusalem. He it was who broke down the heathen idols, making a clean sweep of all of them. He it was who decided to repair the sacred temple. He it was who called the faithful Jews to celebrate the Passover and made it an event which led to a decided revival of the true worship in his kingdom. We are most interested this week in the finding of the "Book of the Laws" in the temple and what was done with it. It was, of course, of parchment or leather, specially prepared to write upon, for the art of making paper was not known in Palestine at that time. The book had in it only the "Books of Moses.** These, among other things,: set forth the punishments which would come on the people if they deliberate ly deserted God's cause and went back into heathenism. When these words were read to the king he was alarmed and sent to have his men inquire from the mouthpiece of God at that time,'a prophetess named' Huddah, as to whether the threats of wrath would be carried out. The answer came that the words of the book would be ful filled and severe punishment certainly come. To postpone the seemingly evil day, and to get the people to obey God, the king started a revival of Godliness in his kingdom. He set the example. The bible was read so the people could un derstand, and the king made a cove nant to walk after the Lord, and to keep His commandments. This agree ment or covenant the people ratified. That is, they made a sign that they were to be bound to serve God the same as the king. Then there was a peaceful season for a time, and much rejoicing over the refinding of the true God who had protected their ancestors in the wilderness. On this lesson can well be based a talk on the benefits coming to an in dividual and a nation by studying to carry out what the bible says. The verdict of the best and ablest men of the world, is that the bible is the great est and best guide for human conduct to be found. The religious, political and social liberties we enjoy, come as the direct result of the rules and teachings of the bible. The high sta tion of women in respect and oppor tunity to make an honorable, independ ent career, comes from the bible. One has but to set a glimpse of the con dition pf things in Indian and China, where the Mohamraadan religion holds sway, to appreciate what the bible has done for both men and women and the children. Schools, colleges, care for the sick and unfortunate, justice for all, become more and more in reach as the teachings of the bible are striven after. The bible gives us the assurance of blessed eternal life, and a reunion with loved tnes who have died. It calls for the reign of love and peace, not hatred and discord. Growing out of its teachings, has recently come the agreement between this country and Great Britain not to go to war any more because of disputes between them. We urge a deeper study of the book. It has treasures which cannot be told in words, for all who look for them. The children cannot too early learn its commands, to truth, forgiv ness, kindness, love, helpfulness, and the grown people will find these and more, for their comfort and guidance. Blessing here on earth and blessed immortality come with obeying what the bible says. Let us not be out done in genuine religion by the Jews who with so little light, tried to obey God 660 years before Christ was born. We have the magnificent light of the New Testament with its words of Jesus, Paul, Peter, James and John, and there Is no good excuse for not hearing and obeying. To call atten tion to our duty along this line, this talk, founded on the coming' Sunday school lesson, is printed. May it be helpful in drawing the readers nearer to the paths of righteousness, which lead to God and heaven. DEATH OF J.' D. SCHMIDT. Taken to Carroll Hospital, Where He Rapidly Failed Until Death— Home Was in West Side. Sunday morning at 4:30 John D. Schmidt, of West Side, died at St. Anthony's hospital after a brief ill ness as the result of Bright's disease Until about two months ago he was capable of performing a full day's work on the farm. About then he began to feel weak and gradually grew worse until last Monday morning he, in company with his wife, drove to West Side and took the train' for this city. He was able to be around that day, but the next he went to bed, where he remained until his death a few days later. On Wednesday he was taken with bleeding at the nose and by Thursday he was very weak. His relatives took him to the hospital on Thursday, but he continued to grow weaker and weaker until the end. On Saturday his breathing was heavy and labored, but a few moments before death it was natural and easy. He remained in full possession of his faculties, until the end. He never lost heart, but was fully aware of the seriousness of his condition, but expressed a firm belief that he would get well. Beside the dying man was the faith ful wife, his brother, Joe, and a broth er-in-law, John Stammeyer, who were present when the spark of life died out and life's labors were ended. Death came without any apparent pain, in fact he never suffered pain during his entire sickness, but gradu ally wasted away, the fires of life died out gently without a struggle. John' D. Schmidt was born in Men dota, 111., January 18, 1862. In the summer of 1875 he moved to this city, where he made his home until in 1901, when he was united in marriage to Miss Lizzie Ithode of Vail, and went to housekeeping at West Side. There he remained hut a few years, when they moved to a farm about three miles east of Vail, where they made their home at the time of his death. To this union there were born no children. The deceased was raised to manhood in this city and had many friends here who will regret to hear of his death. His wife and her brother accompanied the remains to their home near Vail Sunday and the funeral will be held at the Catholic church of that city of which both were faithful members, Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock. He was also a member of the For esters lodge of this city and the order will be represented at the funeral. In the death of Mr. Schmidt the community loses a good citizen, one who acted well his part and was a manly man, true to his beloved wife, his relatives and friends. Hard working, honest and sober, living among neighbors and friends who held him in high esteem. Besides his wife he leaves to mourn his death, three brothers and four sisters. They are: W. F„ Carroll Frank, Spokane J. H., Carroll Mrs. Agnest Pound, Chicago Miss Jennie, Spokane Mrs. Tena Mayo, Dutton, Mont. Miss Florence, Port Jervis, N. Y., and his wife's sister, Mrs. Coal man, of West 8ide, and a brother of Randolph, Neb. The bereaved wife and relatives have the sincere sympathy of many friends in this sad hour of their sor row.—Carroll Sentinel. Auto Wrecked. The Jackson car owned by Dr. C. J. Hinkley, of Odebolt, was 'wrecked in front of Neal Crowley's place on the Arthur road, two miles east of Ida Grove, Friday night. The car was driven by Dr. Hinkley's son, Lee, and went into the ditch at high speed, striking a telephone pole with suffi cient force to break off the pole twelve feet above the ground. The two front wheels were completely wrecked, the steering wheel pulled out by the roots, a back wheel badly warped and the frame of the car bent and twisted 6ut of shape. The car was trying to pass another car and beat it to a culvert when the accident happened. Young Hinkley was thrown out and severely bruised, but not seriously injured. The car is being repaired at the Anderson garage, and it will cost about $150 to put it in shape.—Ida County Pioneer. A $75,000 Apple Deal. The Allen Packing company, of Glenwood, Iowa, last week made a con tract whereby they sold to the C. C. Clemens Produce company of Kansas City their entire apple product this year. The contract totals $75,000 and is one of the biggest apple deals ever carried out in this section of the west. Iowa's possibilities in the fruit line are not appreciated. Unfortunately the state suffered a few years ago from an epidemic of fake nurserymen who sold worthless trees and many who were robbed at that time have formed the opinion that it is useless to try to do anything with a fruit or chard in Iowa. The experience of the apple growers of Bouthwest Iowa ought to convince them to the con trary.—Exchange. 1 if 1 Constantinople, July 16»r-There exists in Europe, and America a mis taken notion that almost every mar ried Turk has several wives, that he is at liberty to marry as many times as he likes, and that it is for him just as easy to divorce a wife as to change an exception, and not the rule, the ma jority of the Osmanlis having but one wife. In the metropolis itself polig amy does not amount to 5 per cent. It is very rarely met with in other big centers of the Ottoman Empire, save among the richest and most powerful functionaries, and even then plurality of wives is an exception. The legal number of wives if four. Only the padishah and caliph is allow ed to have more, being a person beyond and above limitation and restrictions of that kind. The prophet Mohammed had seven wives, and Ali, the fourth in the succession of the caliphate, had nine One of the chief causes of the plur ality of wives being so rare among the Turks is that, while the prophet and the Koran permit the faithful worship: ers of Islam to marry four times, they also provide strict injunctions jf a reli gious and ethical nature, which every Mussulman has to adhere to if he doesn't want to be excommunicated from the fold of orthodox Islamism. Thus, a Turk who is desirous of con tracting a second marriage is bound by an explicit law to provide for his new life companion a separate dwel ling place, in every respect similar to that of his first wife, as well as an equal number of slave,s and servants. This is done not only for the sake of the principle of equity so highly pro nounced in Mohammedan matrimonial relationships, but chiefly in order not to excite jealousy and rivalry. The same principle must be observed in the third and fourth marriage,. Another reason for the rarity of polygamous practice among Moslems is the very intricate character of the wedding ceremony. The .purely, reli gious part of it is always small, in as much as a Turkish couple can be con sidered married if they express their desire to be so in the presence of one witness and an "imim" (priest). But the difficult and costly conditions pre ceding this simple religious act have at all times been an obstacle not only to poligaray, but to marriages gener ally. To begin with, a Turk desirous to marry has to hand over to his bride's parents a sum of between $50 and $2500, or even much more, according to tjhe means and social position of the Couple, in order to furnish the nuptial wife demands a large number of pres ents, very often extremely costly dnd frequently beyond the means of the bridegroom. These presents consist, as a rule, of bracelets, earrings brooch, rings and gems, and are sine qua non of a Turkish wedding. If they are inferior to the extravagant antici pations and pretensions of the bride or her parents, they are immediatly sent back. This is often given and taken as a hint that the engagement is declared off. NATIONAL MILITARY TOURNAMENT, CHICAGO. Great military exhibition, July 24 30, 10,000 soldiers in great military spectacle.
