With in the" border ie an Irish crochet inser tion, the center of the cloth having a hand embroidered design. The linen is hand woven in the more expensive cloths. Another has a heraldic design of lions, in a heavy stitch, contrasting with fine hand-drawn work. The usual size of these fine cloths is a yard and a quarter. The best work ers are put on them, and the satiny ef fect of the embroidery on some, 6uch as a shamrock, "thistle and rose raised design, is produced by the merceriz ing of the embroidery. The simple de signs are as perfectly worked and cost much less, according to the Indianapo lis News. Lovely bits of cluny and insets of creamy filet work wer seen on an other kind of table linen. There were much more elatiorate designs, applied to deep, ivory toned teacloths, round table covers and cushion covers. They are somewhat wanting in neatness and simplicity for good taste, but there is a demand for them. FOR THE LINEN READING LESSOI -' f . - Heb. 11:20-22. i JK. A GOLDEN TEXT "This L -ne victory that hath overcome the world, even our faith." IJohn 5:4. " . ' . The reading lessons for today are a New Testament commentary upon the past quarter's work. The first lesson is taken from that marvelous defensor ot Stephen the first martyr. As he traces the history of the people of Israel, he shows God's continued ac tivities and purpdses from the hour he ' called Abraham until the holy one of Israel came to fill to their fulness all of these same activities and purposes. Stephen also shows us that alongside God's activities was the equally per sistent disobedienae of the people which culminated In the betrayal arid murder of that holy one. In the por tion selected he sets before us how Joseph is sold into Egypt, yet God was with him and delivered him; how the famine came and Jacob is thereby brought into Egypt only later to. be carried back into the land of promise. Teach Faith. The second lesson is taken from that great catalogue of heroes as re corded in the Epistle to the Hebrews. Here we have set before us the fact that God's eternal purpose with man is ever that of faith. Isaac, Jacob and Joseph are here mentioned and the faith of each set before us. . Leaving out the Easter lesson we have covered a period of about 50 years, eight lessons dealing with Jo seph, and four with Jacob. Attention has been called to Jo seph as one of the most remarkable types of Christ to be found in the Old Testament (see comments on lesson of April 27). As we have also sug gested Jacob is not so grand a char acter as Abraham yet is much more. like the average man. It is interesting to go over these lessons and follow God's purposes and to observe how like Christ Joseph was.. In LESSON I. we behold Jacob at the instigation of his mother deceiving his poor old father and being compelled to fly that he might save his life. Re bekah thought she could execute God's purposes; but it is never right to da evil that good may result. In LESSON II.
