Person Quickly Overcome.
The gas responsible, carbon mon
oxid, is one which quickly overcomes
persons exposed to It above certain
concentrations, so that it has been im
portant to determine the limits neces
sary to cause fatality., In an endeavor
to determine this necessary concentra
tion and exposure, Prof, Yaudell Hen
derson, with the aid of 4 number of
colleagues, carried on some studies
preliminary to the problems of ventila
tion involved In the proposed vehicu
far tunnel under the Hudson river.
Among other conclusions reached by
the experimenters, the most important
was the determination that, when the
time of exposure In hours multiplied
by the concentration of carbon mon
oxid In parts per 10,000 of air equals
three, there I 8 no perceptible physi
ologic effect. When it equals six, there
I 8 just a perceptible effect; when |t
equals nine, headache and nausea are
Induced ; when It equals 15 or more,
the conditions are dangerous to life,
If & motorear should give off one cubie
toot of carbon monoxid per minute in
a closed room 10 by 10 by 20 feet, the
atmosphere would reach the dangerous
concentration of 15 parts In 10,000 in

Fairy Tale
“I know that the spring Is very
beautiful. I know that the Sunsmer
Is very lovely. I know that the au
tumn Is very gorgeous. And I think,”
Old Man Winter ended, “that there Is
@ great deal of beauty about the win
“I agree with you,” sald the Fahry
Queen, who had promised Old Man
Winter that she and some of the fal
rles would take a winter trip with him.
They had visited country places and
they had visited sea-shore places,
They had visited some wonderful
mountains and they had visited some
lovely valleys.
They had seen the work Sir Freeze
the-Ponds had done and also the work
of Mr. Freezing-is-Fun. They had
seen all kinds of wonderful winter
scenes In all kinds of places.
| “But,” sald old Man Winter, “I have
¥et one place to take you to before
‘your trip is over.”
| “We have certalnly had a wonder
ful trip,” the Fairy Queen said, “and
we will never forget it. We are quite
delighted to visit one more place.”
So Old Man Winter took the Fairy
Queen and the other fairies to @ place
where there were as wonderful and
marvelous waterfalls to be seen as
anywhere Imaginable.
There the Falry Queen and the falr
les went about with Old Man Winter,
and so that they wouldn't be seen,
they wore robes of spray.
There were ice mountains which
had been made out of spray, and be
tween these mountalns great water
falls rushed down without stopping.
All about were huge lcicles, and at
night a crescent moon came out and
the stars, too, and the water dashed
and foamed, and the lights from the
sky danced merrily as if to say how
pleased they were to look down on
so much beauty.
There were rainbows in front of the
great waterfalls in the daytime, for
the sun shone right through the spray
which came from the falls, and the
Ice and the snow and the lcicles and
the branches of Ice on the trees, all
sparkled as though they were made
of dazzling, wonderful jewels.
There were several great :water
fulls and then there were rushing,
hurrying rapids, rushing as though
they had to get somewhere on time,
and as though they would be late if
they didn't hurry llke anything!
But sometimes they found the time
to twist about and have a game or

were frozen over and the ice and
the dashing water talked together of
the beauty of the winter.
There were falls which were oppo
site from several other falls, and these
were in the shape of a horseshoe. All
about them were icicles and they
dashed down between great huge
masses of beautiful ice.
The telegraph poles and the trees
all about were covered with ice, and
such beautiful shapes as they were.
The trees were like fairyland, Old
Man Winter told the Queen of the

The Fairy Queen and the other fair
fes stood up on an ice mountain which
looked up at the greatest of all the
waterfalls, and the Fairy Queen sald:

I. Ahab Covets Naboth’s Vineyard
(vv. 1-6).
1. Location eof the vineyard (v. 1).
It joined Ahab’s summer home in Jez
reel. He wanted to transform it into
an herb garden and thus round out
his property.
2. Ahab’s proposal (v. 2). He of
fered to buy It outright for money, or
give In exchange a better one. Ahab's
wish for it was a selfish whim. He
did not at all need it.
3. Naboth'’s refusal (v. 3). It was
for a twofold reason: (1) regard for
the paternal estate; (2) obedience to
God's law (Lev. 25:23-28, c¢f. Num. 36:
7-9). Mis refusal was on conscientious
grounds. A king, even, has no right
to ask of his subject that he violate
his conscience.
4. Ahab’s behavior (v. 4). He came
into his house, lay down upon his bed
and refused to eat. The king was
sulking like a.spoiled child. This is
a picture of what a fool even a king,
may make of himself., Let us learn
that “godliness with contentment is
great gain” (T Tim. 6:6).
5. Jezebel’s inquiry (vv. 5,6). Ap
parently she came with the sympa
thy of a wife, inquiring as to the
cause of his behavior. But when she
knew of Naboth's refusal she was vi
olently angry. That a humble sub
ject should refuse to conform to the
desire of the king was an insult which
she would not brook.
11. Ahab Taking Possession of Na.
both’s Vineyard (vv. 7-16).
1. Jezebel's treachery (vv. 7-135).
(1) Her contemptuous question (v.
7). She taunted him for his coward
fce. The feéar of being thought weak
moves a weak man quickly. (2) Her
exhortation to Ahab (v. 7). “Arise, eat
bread, and let thine heart be merry.”
A wife has great influence over her
hushband. Many a man has been saved
from discouragement and therefore
defeat, through his wife's influence.
Unfortunately in this case the in
fluence of the wife is bad. (3)
Her promise to Ahab (v. 7). “I will
give thee the vineyard of Naboth.”
She took matters into her own hands.
If Ahab was too weak fo be king, she
would rule for him. (4) Her wicked
scheme (vv. 8-15). She wrote letters
in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his
seal and sent them to the elders and
nobles who were dwelling in the city
with Naboth, asking them to proclaim
a fast, as though some great calamity
had befallen the nation, and place Na
both before the public as the one who
was the cause of it all. They were
instructed to find two false witnesses
who would testify against Naboth,
The charge they brought according to
ihe wicked device of Jezebel was
blasphemy against God and the king.
Nahoth’s only offense was his refusal
to sell his estate, contrary to the law
of God. When they had stoned to
death Naboth and his sons (II Kings
0:20), they came and told Jezebel,
who in turn came to Ahab with the
information and directed him to take
possession of the vineyard.
2. Ahab goes to Jezreel to take pos
session of Naboth’s vineyard (v. 16).
Ahab had not killed Naboth, but he
eagerly accepted the prize without in
quiring as to how it was secured.
1111. Elijah in Naboth’s Vineyard
Announcing Doom Upon Ahab (vv. 17-
1. Doom upon Ahab (vv. 17-22).
Elijah told him the dogs should lick
his blood in the place where they
licked the blood of Naboth. Ivilwas
to fall upon Ahab and his posterity,
even wipe out his seed and name. He
was guilty of conspiracy, murder, rob
bery, perjury, blasphemy, though he
had been silent and inactive. God
held him responsible for Jezebel's acts,
for he was king and head of the na
tion. The day of reckoning did come
to Ahab (I Kings 22:38).
2. Doom upon Jezebel (vv. 23-26).
She likewise should be eaten by dogs
by the wall of Jezreel. This was lit
erally fulfilled (11 Kings 9:33-37).
“Be sure your sin will find you out.”
IV. Ahab's Repentance (vv. 27-29).
Because of this, God promised to
withhold judgment during his life
Death of Abraham.
And these are the days of the years
of Abraham’s life which he lived. an
hundred threescore and fifteen years.
Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and
died in a good old age, an old man,
and full of years; and was gathered
to his people.—Genesis 25:7-8.

‘ll(m is another important topic which
leaders expect to come up. Suggestions
‘llkwl,\' to come from conference dele
gates, it was said, range from the old
acreage limitation to a more careful

staple commodities as wheat, corn, cot

plane, starting from the ice, crashed
into a crowd of several hundred
skaters on the Shrewsbury river, killed
Mrs. Anna C. E. Hounihan, severed the
right arm of her brother, Lawrence
Conley, and slightly injured many oth

along the river banK to witness the

Casey, former army aviator, maneuv
cred over the heads of the skaters for
several hours, then descended. The
crowd gathered around the machine,
and rivermen, fearing that the ice
would give way, suggested that Casey
leave. He assented, turned the pro
peller and jumped for the cockpit. The
machine swerved and started toward
the crowd. Mrs. Hounihan, with her
hushand, brother and two children,
stood in its path, Conley attempted
to drag her to safety, but both were
caught in the propeller blades.
