Rringo-ur Joh Work to The Time nffine THE SUNDAY 8(OOL. LESSON I. THIRD QUARTER. INTER NATIONAL SERIES, JULY 2. Text of the Leson. II Chron. xxxii. 9--3-Menory Veres,. 9. 2la-Golden 'rest. II Chron. xxxii.S-Conmentary Prepared by Rev. D. 31. Stearns. [Copyrigidt, 1 y05. by American Pres. .ociation. ()nC of our last lessons in the Old Testament six months ago was the sto ry of Ilezekiah's reformation in Judah. his cleansi ng of the temple and his ;;reat passover for all Israel. A spe cial zeal for Cod and His honor is al ways provoking to the adversary, and in some way he will surely show it. The great conflict between God and the devil, Christ and antichrist, light and darkness, which will continue till the second coming of Christ to send the hist great antichrist to the lake of fire (Rev. xix, 10, 20; If Thess. ii, S). is at times very manifest, as in the case of Pharaoh and Israel. Goliath and Da vid. Hicrod and the babes of Bethle hem. etc., but today's record of Sen nacherib's blasphemy is one of the worst in Scripture. The conflict is first seen in Cain and Abel, and from that on it rages with more or less se verity and will until the final outbreak at the end of the thousand years (Rev. xx. 7-10), after which the devil shall go to the lake of fire forever and the earth shall rest. Note the last two verses of chapter xxxi, and you have the key to Sen nacherib's work, for, although seem ingly it was Sennacherib's thought and purpose (xxxii, 1-3), there was a pow er behind the scene using the king of Assyria as his too!. There is a very clear reference to these unseen adver saries in Dan. x, 12, 13. 20; Eph. vi. 12, and, while we have every reason to praise God that the leader of the pow ers of darkness can only go as far as God permits him (Job i, 10; xxxviii, 11; Jer. v, 22), yet we do well to recognize the fact that there is such an enemy and always go fully armed according to Eph. vi. 10-20. Ilezekiah did not make light of the difficulties, yet, being strong in the Lord. he encouraged the people, as in verses and 8. Let us rest ourselves on his words, as his people did, for they are written for us. When the ad versary roars and some visible enemy threatens let us remember "More with us than with him. * * * With us is the Lord. our God, to help us and to fight our battles." Compare nom. viii, 31. God for us. who against us? Verses 0 t 10 of our lesson give a summary an sample of the blasphemy of this antichrist. It was hard for Ilezekiali and his people to hear the living God so re proached, but the people held their peace and answered not a word, for the king had so instructed them (II Kings xviii, 3; Isa. xxxvi, 21). They were helpless to do anything but pray and lean upon the Lord and commit their cause to Him, and this they did. When our God Is reproached there is a time to do as David with Goliath and also a time to act according to Ps. xxxviii, 18. In the present case they answered not the wicked words, and, as to the blasphemous letter, Hezekiahi received it and read it and spread it before the Lord and prayed (II Kings xix, 14). A wiser and better thing he could not have done. See In Phil. iv, 0, 7, our nuthorty to do likewise and let us be obedient, for He will always see to His people's enemies for His great name's sake. Consider the prayer of Hezeklah (11 Kings xix, 15-1$) and note that It was not merely for the safety of Israel, but that all the kingdoms of the earth might know that the God of Israel was the only living and true God. Compare Josh. iv, 24; I Kings viii, 43, 00, and remember that when this is our aim we may expect to see great and mighty things for His name's sake. Hezekiah had a companion with him in prayer, even the prophet Isaiah (verse 20), and it Is well when two can be agreed to wait on the Lord together (Matt. xviii, 19). Now see the glorious answer, "The Lord sent an angel which cut off all the mighty men of valor" (verse 21), only one angel, and that night 185,000 died (II Kings xix, 20). Behold our mighty God! The time will come when one angel shall bind the devil and shut him up and set a seal upon him (Rev. xx, 1-3), and as the re deemed of the Lord we always have one or more of these ministering an gels who excel In strength and delight to do His will (Heb. 1, 14; Ps. ciii, 20, 21) as our constant companions. Thus the Lord saved Hezeklah (verse 22). The Lord Himself did it without any help from the king or the prophet. Hallelulah,. what a Saviour' Notice that Hie saved him from all other ene mies and guarded them on every side, and so Hezekiah was magnified In the sight of all nations, for those who hon or the Lord Hie will honor (I Sam. 11, 30). It is not without some great pur pose that the Spirit has written this story of the king and the prophet, their prayer and the mighty deliverance three times In the Scriptures-in Kings and In Chronicles and in Isaiah. He would at least have us notice and lay to heart the hatred and boastful blas phemy of the enemy, the power of pray er, the ease with which our God can overthrow Hius enemies and that His peoe should ever rely upon Him. I have many a time been helped by these words: "They that war against thee shall be as nothing and as a thing of naught, for L. the Lord thy God, will hold thy right hand, saying. Fear not I will help thee" (Isa. xli, 12, 13); also Isa. liv, 17. "No weapon that Is formed against thee shall prosper." Let us never rely upon our arm of flesh or go in our own strength, but only and always In the strength of the Lord our God. ITorture of a Preacher. The story- of the torture of Rev. 0. D. oot-c, pastor of the Baptisf church, of Harpersville, N. Y., will interest you. He says: "I sutlered agonies, be cause of a persistent cough, r-esulting from the grip.

CASTOR IA For Infants and Children, he Kind You Bare Alway Bought SHE GOT HER BAGGAGE. Mrs. Isabella Bishop Was a Self POX messed Traveler. Mrs. Isabella Bishop, whose travels in dif'erent parts of the world secured for her membership in the British Roy al Geographical society, visited Ameri cn when she was a young woman. She was unused to travel and was alone when she had the following experi ence: Once in a train going to New York she was dreadfully tired, and yet she had a feeling that if she went to sleels the man sitting next her would pick her pocket. She struggled for some time against her inclination to sleep; but, having for a moment given way, she awakened'to feel the hand of her neighbor gently withdrawing her purse from her pocket. In her purse, besides some money. which was, comparatively speaking, of small moment, was her baggage check. That was the only thing that really mattered. If she accused her neighbor of theft, nothing was simpler for him than to drop the purse out of the open window beside which he was sitting. No; she determined she would leave any interference until they arrived at their destination. She secured the services of a porter and, with apparent calmness, followed her traveling. companion dlown the platform. Having describ-d her bag gage to the porter, she at the critical moment bowed slightly to the pick pocket and, with an airy smile, said, "This gentleman has my baggage check." And he Immediately presented it to her. Just What Everyone Should Do. Mr. J. T. Barber of Irwinville, Ga.. al ways keeps a bottle of Chamberlain's Colie. Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy at hand for instant use. Attacks of colic. cholera morbus and diarrhoea come on so suddenly that there is no time to hunt a doctor or go to the store for medicine. Mr. Barber, says: "I have tried Chamberlain's Colic, Chol era and Diarrhoea Remedy which is one of the best medicines I ever saw. I keep a bottle of it in my room as I have had several a:tfacks of colic and it proved to be the best medicine 1 ever used." Sold by The R. B. Loryea Drug Store, Isaac M. Loryea. Prop. M'GAHAN AND SCOBELEFF, The Newspaper Man's Picture of the Great Runsian General. MeGahan was the correspondent who first described to Europe the Bulga rian atrocities. What a brilliant crea ture he was, with his steel blue ey.., -his face as delicately chiseled as though it were of marble, his lithe, light frame and that suggestion of ab solute courage, iron resolve, under neath the almost feminine tininess of the features. He was one of the in timates of Scobeleff-indeed, the men were so attached to each other that Scobeleft nearly always insisted that MeGahan should share his tent with him, and McGahan was in the tent of Scobeleff the night after the disas trous assault on Plevna. Scobeleff was, said McGahan, a wonderful pic ture of the horrors and terrors of war. His face was black with powder, his uniform was in rags, and his sword was twisted like a corkscrew. It is evident from this description that Sco beleff took part with his own hand in some of the work of the day. There was a sequel, by the way, to this pic ture. I am not quite sure whether MGahan published it, but he told it to me. Scobeleff was always a dandy. Even in leading a charge he was dress ed with* dandical precision. In the middle of the night McGahan was woke up, and he saw Scobeleff dress ing himself with great care, putting on a new uniform and even perfuming his hair and clothes. And then came another transformation. Scobeleff, his elaborate toilet finished, sat down on his bed and burst into a shower of tears and a tempest of sobs, thinking over all his poor men who had been so vainly sacrificed in the attempt to gain the fortress.--Londoni M.

Traveling Companions. An excellent test of a friend is the making of a journey in his company. Many who are most agreeable amid the little events of every day at home or in an accustomed round are unable to withstand the petty annoyances that come with travel-the deferred meals, early rising, loss of sleep, tbc~ minor discomforts we all have suifered. But none of these affects the temper of a favorite book. It is ever ready for your amusement. yet never resents being put aside. It has no choice as to your route and asks no more than a little corner of your traveling bag, or, at a pinch, will go into a pocket as snugly as a pet squirrel. The London Acad emy says: "Indeed, of all traveling comrades books are the most genial andi the most gentle; not books of travel they are for the home fireside-but tales that have for background the scenery you are looking upon or histories which deal with men and women who have dwelt and worked in the cities you are visitng."-St. Nicholas.
