In the Hollow of God’s Hand A STORY OF THE HEBREW PEOPLE’S STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM By the Highway and Bjrway” PittcWr (Copyright, I**, lijr W a. K4*on) Scripture Authority: Exodus 1:20 10.20. - HE departure of Moses and Aaron early that morn ing from Goshen had stirred the people to further anxiety, and there was much specu jauon us 10 wnai there errand might be. The plague or frogs and lice which had invaded the land of Goshen ns well as all the land of Egypt had caused much distress and discontent, and It was but natural that the people ahould suspect that some new affliction was about to descend upon them, for with every departure of Moses and Aaron from Goshen recently there had followed some new and distressing plague. But the next day broke as usual; the same cloudTess sky stretched its blue canopy over the land, and the great burning sun mounted the heavenB In undimmed splendor. And the day had but fairly begun ere the Egyptian overseers made their appearance In Goshen to drive the people to the work which had been almost abandoned of late owing to the distressing plagues of the bloody waters, the frogs and the lice. Dejectedly and sullenly the people obeyed, but even while they were go ing, a dark cloud seemed to rise and spread over the land, obscuring the sun and causing a weird and hazy darkness to prevail. In terror the Egyptian overseers fled, leaving the people to scatter and And shelter In their homes. For the better part of the morning the darkness prevailed, and then the black forbidding clouds seemed to disappear as quickly as they had come and once more the sun shone forth In all his splendor, flooding the land of Goshen with glorious light. People once more emerged from their houses and excitedly talked over the strange happenings of the morn ing. Naturally they connected the cloud and the darkness with the ex pected plague, and the people looked about apprehensively as though they expected some new and strange thing to happen to them. But every thing appeared the same, and as they looked at each other inquiring ly, they asked: “What Is it? What has happened? Let the elders seek out Moses and find out what manner of thing this is that has come to pass.” Thus admonished the elders of the people hastily assembled and de parted at once to find Moses and Aaron, but they had not proceeded far when tney were met by an Egyptian messenger who excitedly inquired where he might find Moses. "The king has sent for him,” he exclaimed as he hurried on with them, after they had told him that they too were on their way to Moses' abode. "A dreadful thing has hap pened In Egypt.” he continued. "The land fairly swarms with flies. The land is covered with them, the houses are filled with them, yea. and even the palace has not escaped, and they are causing such torment to the people and the king, that everyone Is well nigh mad. But there are no flies in Goshen!" the messenger exclaimed, stopping short as he suddenly be came conscious that he had left be hind the pestiferous Insects. “Why, how is It? Have not the flies come into Goshen?” and the Flgyptlan looked Inquiringly at the men before him. "We have seen no flies We know not of wh»t you speak,” and then as the light began to break In upon them, they exclaimed: "Came the flies this morning when the sun was obscured and darkness was upon the land?” "At that very time. And since then the king and people have had no peace. I must And Moses at once," he exclaimed, starting forward again, "for Pharaoh In his distress will brook no delay.” The news of the Egyptian's coming and his errand, together with Moses' hasty departure to the palace of the king at Memphis spread rapidly and little else was talked of In Goshen but the wonderful things which had come to pass. "Now do we know that the Lord has made a difference between us and the Egyptians,” the people re peated over and over ngain rever ently. "Surely now Pharaoh will let us go as Moses has demanded.” But the next day after Moses had returned and the people were elated by the report lie brought back that Pharaoh bad consented to their de parture and they were making their preparations, a company of Egyp tian officials made their ap. pearanre and gruffly announced that. Pharaoh would not let them go Thea was there mourning In the land af Covlien, nnd It was with difficulty that tfe* elders restrained the people Moses, with discouraged, and aching he,vrt. sought the solitude with Ood alone, and Ip obedience to His word he returned to k’haraob jgaln the next day and bald; "The hand of the Lord t« upon thy cattle which Is in tbe field. upon ’he j horses, upon the asses, upon the c'm els, upon the oxen and upon the sheep; there shall be a very grievous murrain." • What?” thundered the king, "dart you defy the gods of Egypt? Know* est thou not that the spirit of the god Osiris dwells in the sa* red bull, and Apis and Mncvis in the ram c? Am mon, the sheep of Sals and the g jac of Meades.” “Yea, S) the Egyptians believe, but that thou maye.it know that the God of the Hebrews is more powerful th n thy go Is, the Lord will sever bvtw a a the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt, and there sh.tll nothing die of all that Is the children’s of Israe’.” The cruel, hard face of Lie k ng was purple with suppresse l passion as Moses finished, and ha appeared about to speak, but Instead he d a mlssed Moses with an Imperious wave of his hand, and the latter, as he reached the doorway, turned and said, slowly, and distinctly: "To-morrow this thing shall come to pass," and was gone. The news of Moses’ visit to the pal ace and his message to Pharaoh spread rapidly, and while the g-eat majority of the Egyptians were dis posed to assume the defiant and supe rior attitude of Pharaoh, there were others who, impressed by the events of the past few weeka, were trouo.ed and said: “Surely the God of the Hebrews will consume us in His wrath If Pharaoh longer afflicts the people of Israel. The gods of Egypt were never able to perform such wonders as Moses has wrought In the name of his God.” And they awaited the events of the morrow with anxiety, tfven Pharaoh, in spite of his defiant spirit, was trou bled and as the night wore away and sleep refused to come to his tired brain, he sent and called Jannos and Jambres, his magicians, to him, and the activity In the temple and the de parture of secret emissaries to Goshen a few hours later indicated tnat some important plan was on foot. x>ui iu uobiieu peace anu quiei pre vailed. w'hat though the plagues did devastate Egypt, in Goshen was safe ty. What though the word of t • Lord spoken through Moses had de clared that a deadly murrain was to attack the cattle, the children of Is rael had naught to fear, for had not the Lord said He would set a differ ence between the cattle of the Egyp tians and the cattle of the Hebrews? Had not the plague of Hies shown that the God of the Hebrews was aide not only to send His plagues upon Egypt, but preserve Goshen as in the hollow of His hand? Such was the faith which held the people, but there was one Hebrew who was deeply troubled. That morning early two Egyptians had sought him out and placed him in charge of a herd of Egyptian cattle which they Insisted should be kept with his own animals. At any other time this would not have seemed strange, for the Egyp tians often placed such duties upon the Hebrew slaves, but coming just when God had spoken a curse upon the cattle of the Egyptians alarmed him. What could save his own cattle now? If the murrain broke out among the Egptian cattle, there could be no hope for his own herded with them. But ne dare not refuse, and watched the Egyptians depart with sinking heart, and had he seen them as they laughed over the clever plan of Phar aoh, It would not have helped to quiet his rising fears. He was tempted to drive the Egyptians’ cattle away, and put his own cattle In a secure place by themselves, but at last he con quered the Impulse, saying over and over to himself: “Surely the God of Israel can save our cattle, wherever they may be placed.” Thus reassured and comforted, he watched by the side of the herd and aa the morning wore away he saw first one and then another of the Egyptl in cattle fall and die, while his own fed on contentedly. With n distressing moan of pain the last remaining ani mal of the Egyptian herd lay down and died Just as the Egyptians, who had broight the cattle early that morning, appeared. Their quick giance took In the situation, and wbh one frightened, troub'ad look they ! turned and without a word hasten'd away. CiYUI y IICI C un llivjr wriu II1CJ IWIIIII] the people rushing about In great ex cltement and distress, crying that the curse of Ibe Hebrew Oorl was upon them and their cattle was dying. “Why, even titc sacred bull of the temple has died In spite of th» de# perate efforts of Jannes and Jainbres to save Its life," exclaimed one of the temple attendants to them as they : passed. And within they found Jannes and Jambres even then breaking the ter* rllde news to I h iraoh. As the latter saw his messengers enter, ho asked, with an eager hopefulness In bis voice; "What news from Goshen? a irely, the Hebrew's tattle did not escape." "Yea, my lord," they replied. The king bowed nis head In aw-Inns thought, and Jannes and Jamhr<», fearing for the prestige of the Fgyp tian gods, exclaimed: “Let the king be patient. We shall yet triumph ” But In Goshen faith In n living God gave better courage and a more endu - ing hope that the God of Israel would yet bring them deliverance.

It Is characteristic of President Roosevelt’s courage that in leading the people’s attack against the law less he has selected the offender that is chief in power and in pernicious in fluence. It is characteristic of the president’s directness that he has mentioned that offender by name, and it is characteristic of his fidelity that he proposes to use all the available power of the government to undo the misdoing and to punish the misdoer. It has been the general belief, says the Troy Times, that the Standard Oil company has been amassing great wealth by crushing out competition, and by the employment for this end of ! illegal combinations and agreements The thorough and untiring investlga I Oon made by Commissioner Garfield, of the bureau of corporations, has amassed facts which prove that secret rebates granted by the Standard Oil company and oppressive discrimina tion in open rates have given to that enormous corporation a decisive and overwhelming advantage over com | petltors. it is shown in illustration j that rates only one third of what was | charged to other shippers were given : to the Standard Oil company Jn this I state. President Roosevelt has informed . eongr* ss of the facts and iu.stly de | scribed tlie situation as a “oharacter , istlc example of the numerous evils j which are inevitable under a system I in which the big shipper and the rail | road are left free to crush out all in dividual initiative and all power of independent action because of the ab j sence of adequate and thorough-going governmental control." | i ne president rightly holds that so . outrageous a breach of equity In the I encratchment upon popular right and j so gross a violation of the principles of business fairness constitute a blow at the people and a menace to the pur poses which the American govern* ment was established to maintain and I defend. The president suggests, there fore, that to an administrative agency i be given power to control and check the treacherous abuses of such a cor poration as the one under review, and ; plainly indicates his willingness to j us<? all the means open to the exeeu tive to attack this organized injustice and to protect its victims among the business interests and the individual consumers of the country. Great offenses deserve heroic reme dies, and, as tlie president says, any injustice which may be predicted of an administrative commission would not begin to he so outrageously cruel as what has already been proved against one of the big corporations of this country. A LIVE ISSUE CERTAINLY. "rorn Present Indications the Tariff Will Be Much in Evi dence. If saying so would only make it so. there would be much cause for gratifl | cation in the opinion expressed by the Pittsburg PresB. “The tariff involves at most no | fundamental principle. It is merely an administrative question, within j certain lines. Not even the most em phatic revisionists have the temerity to demand free trade. All they want is a readjustment of schedules. They admit that the country is prosperous and that the protective principle un ! derlying our tariff policy should not j he disturbed. Manifestly, then, the l tariff Is a question which can and I will wait. There are a dozen other matters more presslngly in need of ; regulation. Tariff revision talk now would Induce sleep anywhere, from a crossroads political meeting to the J president’s cabinet.” Nevertheless*, says the American Economist, there Is much tariff re vision talk Koine on right now, and the talkers are not talking in their sleep, either. They.at least, are very much awake. It is the published pur pose of the American Reciprocal Tar iff league to secure the election this year of the largest possible number of Republican congressmen pledged to immediate tariff revision. Cummins , Guild, Foss. McCall and the rest of the “progressives" will help all they can. if this purpose should succeed In. say, T.O congress districts—and it will succeed In more than districts If the friends of tariff stability are not alert—the wav would lie open to a general attack on the Dlnglev srhed ules.

We do not believe San Francisco Is a party to the cry for a repeal of the tariff on structural steel while the city is rebuilding. There is no occasion for such repeal, says the Pittsburg Ga zette. American manufacturers can supply the demand. Pittsburg mills can do it and would set other work aside if necessary that rebuilding should not be retarded. This at prices hfirdly greater than would be paid for foreign material if the tariff should be removed. In a recent hear ing before the committee on merchant marine and fisheries. Judge Gary, chairman of the United States Steel corpora* ion, quoted the prices in this country and abroad. By that state ment It may seen the export prices of Great Britain, Germany, France, Aus tria and Belgium on structural shapes range from SI.25 to $1.45, while the American price is about $1.60. Add ing freight, the price, delivered, would give no appreciable advantage to the San Francisco builders, but might take much money from this country. President Roosevelt rejected foreign contributions to the relief fund and It would be a remarkable exhibit on the part of contress to extend an invita tion to foreign manufacturers to sup ply the material for rebuilding the city. While Germany is building Its tariff wall higher and Is paying a bounty on steel exports, to enable her manufacturers to quote low prices, there Is no call for the United States to open the door even in the face of calamity. Great Britain is not in po sition to furnish the material more promptly than this country can, and having a higher production cost and no bounty, could not compete with Germany in the bidding. Should material be brought from abroad it would benefit neither the railroads nor the industrial concern which have given so liberally to the sufferers. All would come direct Jjy water in foreign bottoms. San Fran cisco would be ashamed to rebuild with foreign steel. The members of congress who introduced the bills do clare that they did so under the n\; apprehension that American mills could not supply the demand. That Impression having been corrected, there is just one proper course to take. That is to withdraw the bills and let the matter drop. No hardship will be imposed thereby on the San Francisco rebuilders. DEMAND NOT POPULAR. Change of the Dingley Schedules No* Called for by the People in General. No Republican from Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Iowa or anywhere else who has assailed the tariff this year has voiced the view of the Republican party. The Dingley act has been in operation nine years. It. has had a longer life than the Wilson-Gorman law which it. displaced. Also it has lived longer than did the McKinley act, which the Democrats repealed when they put the Wilson-Gorman law on the statute book. So, likewise, it has been with us for more years than was the act of 1883, which the McKinley law succeeded. Dingley's tariff has had a longer career than any other law in its field since Mor rill's, which was passed in 1861. But the Dingley act continues to give a good account or itself, says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. It furnishes both revenue and protection, and the Wilson act provided neither the One nor the other. Nothing that any Dem ocrat has ever said against the Ding ley law has been ub severe as Clevf* land’s denunciation of the Democratic Wilson-Gorman act, the “party per fidy and party dishonor law.” which Cleveland contemptuously refused to sign, but let it get on the statute book through the expiration of the ten days’ time limit. There Is no popular demand among the Republicans for the repeal or material modification of the Dingley tariff. On the contrary, any tampering with that net at this time would arouse Republican hostil ity all over the country. No Repub Mean who assails it ran long main tain his standing In the party.

H. Clark, a printer, living at 612 Buchanan street, Topeka, Kaus., “I had a bad at tack of rheumatism and could not seem to get over it. All sorts of medicines failed to do me any good and my trouble kept getting worse. My feet were so swollen that I could not wear shoes and I had to go on crutches. The pain was terrible. ** One day I was setting the type of an article for tho paper telling what Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills had done for a man afflicted as I was and 1 was so impressed with it that I determined to give the medicine a trial. For a year my rheu matism had been growing worse, lmt after taking Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills I began to improve. The pain and swell ing all disappeared and I can truthfully say that I haven’t felt better in the past twenty years than I do right now. I could name, off hand, a half-dozen peo ple who have used Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills at my suggestion and who have re ceived good results from them.” Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills aro guaran teed to be safe and harmlcrs to the most delicate constitution. They contain no morphine, opiate, narcotic, nor any thing to cause a drug habit. They don t act on tho bowels but they actually mnke new blood and strengthen tho nerves. Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills euro rheuma tism because they make rich, red blood and no man or woman can have healthy blood and rheumatism at the same time. They have also cured many cases of anaemia, neuralgia, sciatica, partial pa ralysis, locomotor ataxia niul other dis eases that have not yielded to ordinary treatment.

Re publican and Citizen, respectively, •ays the Boston Herald. The orator who nominated Mr. Staples me lo a. mighty effort. “Who is Clement E. Staples?” he cried, as he waved his arms like pump handles and strode back and forth on the platform. * A deep and Impressive silence followed. Again waving his arms, he called In a voice of thunder: “Who is Clement E. Staples?” The silence was rr.oie pronounced and the effeot greater. The audience was visibly Impressed. Be fore attempting to dwell upon the good qualities of his candidate, the speaker again proclaimed: “I say, who is Clement E. Staples?” A small man in the rear of the hall stood on a chair and broke the silence by saying: “Waal, I'll bite. Who is he?" "White Disease” In Africa.

BREAD DYSPEPSIA. The Digesting Element Left Out. Bread dyspepsia is common. It af fects the bowels because white bread in nearly all starch, and starch is digested , in the intestines, not in the stomach : proper. Up under the shell of the wheat berry nature has provided a curious deposit which Is turned into diastase when Ufa*’ subjected to the saliva and to the pan creatic juices in the human intestines. This diastase is absolutely necessary to digest starch and turn it into grape sugar, which Is the next form; but that part of the wheat berry makes dark flour, and the modern miller cannot readily sell dark flour, so nature’s val uable digester is thrown out and the human system must handle the starch 1 as best it can, without the help that na ture Intended. ' Small wonder that appendicitis, peri tonitis, constipation and all sorts of ; trouble exist when we go so contrnrv j to nature’s law. The food experts that ; perfected Grape-Nuts Food, knowing | these facts, made use In their experi ments of the entire wheat and baric r. i Including nil the parts, and subjected j them to moisture and long continued ! warmth, which allows time and tho Proper conditions for developing the diastase, outside of the human body. In this way the starchy part Vs trans formed into grape-sugar in a perfect ly natural manner, without the use of chemicals or any outside Ingredients. • The little sparkling crystal* of grape I sugar can he seen on the pieces of | Grape-Nuts. This food therefore 1* i naturally pre-digented and its use in j place of bread will quickly correct the troubles that have been brought abent by the too free use of starch In the food, and that Is very common in the human race to-day.
