“AV. F. CODY.” 1
Birmingham's population Increased 7S0
over night. Buffalo Bill's Wild West and
Pawnee Bill’s Far East brought that num
ber, to say nothing of yqj head of horses,
elephants, camels, wild animals and Far
East denizens to tho city, where the en
tire day will be spent, two performances
1 being on the programme, a matinee ami
evening show, and a street parade for
good measure.
The three trains on which the show
equipment Is transported from city to
city arrived over the Southern during the
night, and at daylight the work of un
loading commenced.
Yesterday live agents were busy
throughout the city completing the final
details. Purchasing Agent Tu’.ttdge was
abroad early buying food and fodder for
the animals, while Steward Biddle pur
chased the neccssaiy edibles for the three
meals In Birmingham. Two twenty-four
hour men were busy arranging tho rail
road details so that no obstacle was in
the path when the exhibition arrived.
Motley Throng in Dining Tent
Interesting in the extreme are the dining
tents with the combined shows. The
steward, chefs and waiters have their own
troubles catering to the appetites \of the
motley throng gathered from the four cor
ners of the earth. The Indians, for in
stance, demand nothing but meat, and the
longer It Is cooked the better they like It
The Arabs, on the other hand, eschew
moat altogether and eat nothing but gram
foods. The Cingalese require their dishes
seasoned so that It would burn the stom
ach of the average man, while the. Cos
sacks depend largely on stews as their
diet. The Mexicans all have their own
'.pedal dlHhes, while the cowboys and
cowgirls enjoy another menu specially
prepared for them
Breakfast Is tho first meal served in
this city, the cook houses, the dining
tents, culinary department and the larger
horse stables arriving on the first of the
three trains. This section known In
Wild West parlance as the "flying squad
“on." is the first vo be sent away In the
early evening, after supper has been
served, so that it will be ready ir. the
next city for breakfast.
First Parade in Several Years
Interest this morning will center in the
parade, the first that Buffalo Bill and
Pawnee Bill have offered in several years.
As a consequence special attention has
been paid to the details, and the proces
sion includes the wild west, the mili
tary and the far east. Colonel Cody, as
hale and as hearty as of yore, will lead
the procession, followed by his plainsman
associate, Pawnee Bill. Then will come
the wild west with plenty of cowboy
bands, mounted, of course, and all the
frontier features together with a number
of Indians, led by Iron Cloud, the Sioux
The military of the world, including a
company of boy scouts, will precede the
far east with its quaint people, its cu
rious bands of musicians, opened cages
of wild animals, elephants, camels, and
the other beasts of the Orient. The
various modes of transportation will be
shown, and the procession will return to
| tlio grounds after making a tour of the
principal streets.
Redskins Interesting Crowd
The wild animal's annex, the Indian
village and the other congresses at the
show grounds will be opened as soon as
the procession returns. The red skins
with the aggregation this season are a
most interesting number, all of them be
ing recruited from the Wounded Knee
district of the Pine Ridge agency, the
scene of the famous Custer massacre.
The children of the village, and there are
more than the usual number of them,
were all born within the shadow of the
great monument on the Custer battlefield
while flee of the sub chiefs under Iron
Cloud are making their first trip east
of the Mississippi in their lives. All of
the Indians are of the Sioux nation, the
most picturesque of all tribes.
Yellow' Hand, son of the famous chief
of that name, the head of the Pine Ridge
agency, and the only living Indian who
participated in the Custer massacre as
chief, is among the company. Iron Cloud,
the leader, was one of the youngest
braves In the Indian ranks, and a number
of the older Indians saw battle in that
memorable fight.
All Things Work for Good to Them
Genesis 46:28-47:12:28-31— June 16.
"To them that love God all things
work together for good."—Romans 8:28.
So Jacob and all bis family left Ca
naan, the land of promise, and at the
Invitation (\f Pharaoh through Joseph
located In the land of Goshen. Joseph
went In Ills chariot to Goshen, and
Ihore met Ills father, whom he had not
seen in many years. After the custom
of oriental countries, they kissed 'each
other, and Joseph wept.
Then came the official preesntatlon
of Jacob and his family to Pharaoh.
Joseph was careful that they should
make no mitake. lie therefore let the
King clearly know that their occupa
tion was that of shepherds and herds
men; for the Egyptians despised that
business, and hence would keep them
selves separate from the Hebrews.
Thus Goshen* became almost llko a
separate country from Egypt.
Jacob at this time was 130 years old,
and quite feeble. Brought Into Pha
raoh's presence, he blessed the King_
In the sense of asking the Divine bless
ing upon him, we may assume. Thus
Jacob’s family, now called by their new
name, Israel, became firmly estab
lished in Egypt. Jacob lived 17 years
thereafter, during which Joseph and his
people, the Israelites, were In favor
with Pharaoh and the Egyptians.
Our lesson relates especially to God’s
willingness and ability to make all the
experiences of His people work out for
their good. Tills naturally suggests that
we Inquire in what way Jacob’s experi
ences were to his welfare. The scrip
tures declare, "Jacob have I loved;
Esau have I hated (loved less)." God’s
love should be distinctly seen mani
fested In making matters work for
good to Jacob and his family.
Only with the eye of faith, guided by
the words of Jesus, His apostles and
the prophets, can we see how God's
blessing was with Israel. Many ha»’e
not this eye of faith. Hence only the
few can appreciate this matter. The
majority of both professing Christians
and Jews fail to see what blessing
came to Israel. Proportionately such
are weak in faith, and quite ready to
be turned aside by higher critics and
evolutionists Into total unbelief in the

Bible and the Divine plan of the ages
which It sets forth.
How Did God Bless Israel?
Jacob, having become heir of the
great Abrahamlc promise (In thy seed
shall all the families of the earth be
blessed), straightway seems to have
gotten into trouble. He fled from home,
leaving everything to his brother. He
served his uncle Laban for seven years,
that he might have Ilachel for his wife.
But Divine Providence purlmtted him to
be cheated, and he was obliged to serve
seven years more for her. Time and
again his uncle Laban changed his
wages In an endeavor to get the better
of him. Thus Jacob was thrown into
competition with Laban In the endeavor
to protect his own Interests.
Finally, with the fruit of many years’
toll, he returned to Canaan, fearful,
however, of his brother Esau, whom he
placated with a rich present. Later, he
lost his wife and Joseph, his beloved
son. Then came the maine, the recovery
of Joseph, and the Incidents of our re
cent lesson. Later on, that very move
Into Egypt appeared to have been dis
astrous; for the Egyptians enslaved the
Then they were delivered, only to
have trying experiences In the wilder
ness for 40 years, before entering Ca
naan. It was a gradual matter to get
possession of the land. They had vari
ous trials and difficulties—captivities,
wars, famines, pestilences, rebellions—
and finally were carried away captive
Into Babylon. They went away numer
ous, they came back comparatively a
small company. Then they had more
wars, etc.
By and by Jesus name, ana was repu
diated by the nation. Then God repudi
ated them. Gradually trouble and an
archy came upon them, until as a na
tion they went to Hades—nationally
they fell asleep. They have been asleep
for more than IS centuries, while per
sonally they have endured persecutions
In many nations.
What we desire to see, however, Is
how God's blessing was identified with
all these experiences, and to know In
what way God overruled for their good
more than In the affairs of other na
tions. To understand this, we must
glance at other nations and their ex
periences, and then look also Into the
future, .
Where is the government of the Pha
raohs today? Where is Assyria? Where
are any and all of the nations that
flourished In the days of Israel? They
are no more. They have either merged
with other peoples or been blotted out
by natural processes. We arc not dis
cussing India, China, Japan, nor the
barbarous tribes of Africa, which were
not closely Identified with Israel, natur
al or spiritual.
But Israel exists today, even though
the nation is asleep in Hades. Sheol,
waiting for a national awakening and
resurrection. That awakening is al
already arousing dry hones front de
spair, and pointing forward to a future
dav of blessing and prosprity. One
result of God's providential care over
Israel lias been that as a people they
have maintained their existence. It is
this hope of future blessings, based
upon God's promise to Abraham, which
continues to vitalize that, people. It is
this hope which by and by, according
to prophecy, will revitalize Israel, am
again bring her forward and identlfs
her with the great Messianic kingdom
which will bless the world.
The trying experiences of centuries
of national life tended to develop no
ble characters, strong In faith and loyal
to the core. St. Paul enumerates some
of these. With them he Includes all
those ''Israelites Indeed" who wore
loyal to God to the extent of suffering
for righteousness' sake and for sako
of the hope received through tlm
Amrahamic promise. Some of these, lie
says, were "stoned to death, sawn asun
der ’• • • of whom the world was not
worthy."—Hebrews 11:37, 38.
This selecting process continued down
to the time of Jesus, and found a glori
ous company, even though small. God
was seeking In that nation a peculiar
people, with faith and obedience Blmllur
to those of Abraham. He found the ones
whom lie sought. True, they have not
yet received their reward. True, their
reward Is not to be a Heavenly one, but
an earthly one, as was prolmsed them.
“All the land that thou seest will I
give thee, and thy seed after thee."
Through them the blessing will extend
to every nation.
These faithful Israelites are the ones
for whom all things worked together
favorably—because they loved Gfd, be
cause they were responsive to the
righteousness which He set before them
and to the great Promise which He
gave them. The time is near at hand,
we believe, when these will constitute
Messiah’s earthly representatives, in
the ruling and blessing of the world
of mankind, for a thousand years.
What was prophesied of them before
will be fulfilled. Instead of being the
fathers, they will be Messiah’s children,
receiving everlasting life from him as n
Father. He will make them princes In
all the earth, in subordinale co-opera
tion with His Heavenly empire.—
Psalm 45:16.
