Libby, McNeill & Libby, Chicago How Europeans Get Our Gold. Do you know Just how Europe re «ently got that $125,000,000 In Ameri can gold. Well, here Is the way it was done: Europeans hold great amounts of American securities, which 1b to say they hare bought bonds is sued in this country. When the war crisis ca^o they saw the need of ac tual mo/iey in place of these bonds. They 'tabled to their American bro kers ti> sell at the market price. They -took whatever they could get, but there was always something offered, so the sales were heavy. The purchasers of these bonds gave their checks. These the brokers cashed at their banks and got curren cy. The currency of the United States Is made good by the deposit of gold In the teasuries. For every gold cer tificate in existence there is the act ual metal in the treasury. So the brokers, getting the currency from the banks, went to the sub-treasury in New York and asked for the actual gold. They received it and sent the gold to their customers abroad. A Sound Sleeper.

CHICAGO PICKED OUT THE RIGHT TIME Girt Made Victim of Hoax by MIs chievoui Friends Went Home In a Fury. One day several of my girl friends called to see me. We started to make some candy when I discovered that we didn't have any chocolate In the house and said that I couldn't possibly make It without “a speck of choco late.” Mary, one of the girls, said: “Why, ! what kind of chocolate Is that— couldn’t you use any other kind?” One of the girls gave me a pinch 1 and 1 said: "Oh. no, I couldn't use any other kind. ICb a new kind. You i telephone the grocery and order some, Mary, and we’ll start the candy. Nov be sure and order ’Aspecka.' ” "So we filed to the kitchen and left Mary to telephone. We sat In the kitchen holding our sides with sup pressed laughter while she called up one store after another trying to get "Aspecka chocolate.” She finally gave | up in despair and then we told her.

She says: ' During the two years of my train ing as a uurse, while on night duty, I becamo addicted to coffee drinking. Between midnight and four In the morning, when tho patients were asleep, there was little to do except make the rounds, and It was quite natural that 1 should want a hot cup of coffee about that time. I could keep awake better. "After three of four years of cof fee drinking, I became a nervous wreck and thought that I simply could not live without my coffee. All this time I was subject to frequent bilious at tacks, sometimes so severe as to keep me In bed for several days. "After being married, Husband begged me to leave off coffee for he feared that It had already hurt ms almost beyond repair, so I resolved to make an effort to release myself from the hurtful habit. > •* "I began taking Postum, and for a few days felt the languid, tired feel Ing from the lack of the coffee drug, but I liked the taste of Postum, and that answered for the breakfast bev erage all right. ' Finally I began to feel clearer headed and had steadier nerves. Aft er a year s use of Postum I now feel like a new woman—have not had any bilious attacks since I left off coffee."

He loved granny dearly— there were parts of the Pible he loved likewise to rend to her. Hut the begats! There his halting tongue always got him in trouble. Commonly Phil was as docile as today he was restive. What boy of twelve wouldn’t have been restive with all the school streaming past to the big lot. where the home nine of big boys was to play off a match with a nine from town?

She was about to speak when Lisa and Nancy burst In, crying breathless ly, “Oh. goody! Phil hasn’t gone.

Granny cleared her throat. “1 sup pose it is because he hates reading to n poor old blind woman," sho tnid re bukingly "I’ll pray the g«>od lA>nl not to remember and visit It on him.” "I—I—you know—1—" Phil stntn mered with an appealing look at Idsa. Sh* laughed outright he fled pro cipitately—not toward tho lot, bul his haven of refuge, the hay mow. Naney found him there, and coaxed him to come forth She had made it right with granny—would stay her self and reud to her Phil and l,isa might be In time if they only hurried, lie could not look at her; his heart was too full—nor see her, his eyes were too dim. Ftut in his mind she ehap+d herself anew us the most com forting and beautiful creature ever made. Tlmo’n whirligig took Phil far from the home of his boyhood. At seven ond twenty he wan as handsome and promising a young lawyer as the town of Exmouth could boast. His uncle, the Judge, had taken him there after granny died, adopted him, sent him through college, and taken him into partnership in reward for win uing first honors at tho law school. "Just one thing more, ton." he hnd said when Phil first sat down oppo site him In the private office. "Get married.' Quick. I want to play with your children a good while* before 1 die." FYom the Judge this v«h astound ing. He had been held almost a child hater. Those so holding did not know the truth—that he had buried his heart In the grave of another man’s wife. She had left behind a daughter almost her image. What so natural aa that the Judge should acheme hope fnlly to make her fho mato of his adopted son? Crnftlly, of course. He was loo wise for open apeech in tho matter. Phti would, lie knew, feel bound to follow his wishes. His boy must b(» happy in bis own way. He ebies. Evelyn was so charming. Notwithstanding Phil went scathe less; played best rnan when Evelyn married, and even forbore to kiss the bride.

The judge laughed uproariously over the telling It ran through all the taunting*, teasing* and small humili ation* Phil had had to endure at that Pisa * hands "Why don’t you lake me out to the old place^ I'd love to see where you played as a little boy." said the Judge. Thu* It fell out that a month later Judge Gregory and his nephew knocked at the Acton door Mr* Ac ton opened It. and looked at them luestionlngly, but before they could speak a tall, slender young woman with blue eyes and nn infantine smile precipitated herself upon them crying, "Phil! I'd know you In the middle of Africa. Come right In. I want to show you my baby." "I call that rubbing It In," Phil said smiling. "Mow do you know 1 have not come back to marry you?" Pisa shook her fist at him, saying, with a grimace: "Oh, I outgrew you ten years hack at least-—but 1 know just the youag person for you." Phil did not answer. He was star ing hard at a vision. Just within the living room door was a woman, nei ther tall nor short, with clear, pale skin and lucent green gray eyes, overhung by smooth masses of shining chestnut hair. Her face had a fresh look—as of one whom time had passed by. He went toward her with outheld hands, breathing rather than saying. "Nancy’” She put her hands In Ms clasp. They were vitally thrilling Holding them tight, he turned to Mm. saying: “Thank you, bat I’ve found the young pernor for myself ." TO OBTAIN MERCY Consciousness of Sin and Un worthiness Must Always Be the First Requisite. It Is Important to know how mercy may be sought so as to be found. In the familiar words concerning the Pharisee and the publican, we have the way to mercy divinely pointed out. I he first requisite Is a sense of per sonal guilt "God be merciful to me j a sinner.” Individuality and personal account ability tc» God must be recognized be j fore any acceptable plea for mercy can be presented. j Kvcry man must give an account of himself to God." "Kvery soul must bear Its own burden. ’ i I hero must be grief on account of ton. n he Pharisee had no conviction j of unworthiness, and. therefore, no i sorrow for sin He did not Teel any i ,ip‘“d of mercy, and did not pray for It. | ' et he prayed Ho prayed with hint-j | s«df. not to r.ed, saying* 'God. 1 I thunk thee, that I am not as other ; tncti nre, extortioners, unjust, adulter ere, or even ns this publican.” He felt himself to be "rich, in creased In goods and In need of noth ing " and to all such God says: ”1 ! will Fpue thee out of my mouth.” How different with the publican! Hi' "smote his breast.” Indicating the heart as the s«'at of grl»»f, on account or the consciousness of sin and un worthiness The chief element in true i repentance Is n sense (if the offense our sins are offering to God I here can be no "repentance toward God until the soul feels that: I Against thee, thee only, have I sinned " I have airued against heaven and In thv eight.” True Feelinp of Grief. The ff-eling of grief I* produced In recognising the sinfulness of sin in Cod's sight, nnd In realizing the In jury tt Inflict* on ourselves nnd the harmful influence It exerts upon oth ere. The publican "smote hla breast" In expression of his passionate grief over his sin against Ood, his own soul and his fellow man. lie cjled for mercy, bowing his. heart In humility and shame before Ood. lie stood afar ofT, denoting that he felt unworthy to draw near to the sacred precincts of the temple, and as though his presence would desecrate the holy place. Ills humility Is fur ther rhone In hla not lifting "up so much as Ida eyea unto heaven.” The I’aalintst expresses thla thought In the words: "My sins have tnlen hold of me so that T nm not able to look up " The perception of divine purity al ways produce* a deep sense of hu inlllfy In the sinner's heart and prompts the prayer, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner.” Mercy Is the sinner's only plea. Ha docs not pray for Justice. Weighed In the scales of Justice ho must be found wanting and hn« nothing to ex pect hut punishment. Seeking for Mercy. Note that the publican had convic tion of personal guilt, sorrow on ac count of Ills unworthiness and deep humility of heart. These are the con dlHone for acceptable approach to God In prayer Then note the object and character of his prayer. The object was "mercy.” Its character w«h brief and simple, but sincere and earnest. It was a very short prayer. Only seven words, but the longings of the soul were In them and they wore pre« wonted In the way of Ood^s appoint ment. "He went up to the temple to pray.*' He was seeking God where he , Is always to he found by those of "a broken and contrite heart.” Would you nnd mercy? Reek It an the publican did In the spirit of humility and with confession of uln, offering unto Ood the sincere and earnest nuppllcatlon of the heart: "(Jrd be merciful to nm a sinner.” There k'rk a Tpry happy result fol low 111 k *hp publican’ll going up to the tempi#* to pray. "He went down to hi* house Justl fled.” Not so with the proud Phari see. He went away abashed. "For every one that exalteth himself shall be abased, and he that humblnth himself shall be exalted." From a Veteran Pastor's Prayers. Father In heaven, command thy grace In Jesus Christ on the sorrow ing. Solace the bereaved and lonely. Refresh the weary Huccor the op pressed, and the tempted, strengthen the weak Teach us to consecrate our griefs to thee. Out of mtr sadness bring the fruits of nobler service. Send the tides of purity and godly power coursing through the lives of men, and the affairs of society, of business, of human government until Justice and truth shall reign unhindered through out the world, through J»sus Christ our Lord, Man’s Continuous Evolution.
