It is a great moment when one can look back over his experience ami can say with earnestness and contldence, as Paul did, ”1 was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision.” Heavenly visions are not infrcqueut. They come to us right often. The spiritual influences come as quietly and as un seen as the electric current, and with something, too. of its magnetic energy. The Holy Spirit causes a still small voice to be heard in the soul. Duty impresses itself with peculiar force on the spirit. The attractiveness of right eousness. the beauty of goodness, tlie call of the good—it is a dull and un spiritual soul that does not see and hear these things. Heaven is ail about us, not only in our infancy, as Words worth declares in the poem, but also in our maturity. How direct and un mistakable are the uppenls and the calls that come from above. A habit of obedience to the heaven ly visions marks those that are mail ing greatest religious and spiritual progress. The thing that means most for spiritual development is a deter mination to respond to those impulses which come from (Tod. Jesus Christ leads those who will follow. He opens new experiences to those that are obedient. He discovers the deeper things of truth to those who obey. He takes all those who aro willing to be led into the richer experiences of Christian living. The deepest personal humiliation in to which one can enter is the con sciousness that he has not been obedi ent to the spiritual influences that have touched his life. Ksau, mourning over the birthright he had bartered foolishly away; Saul, feeltng the might of Jehovah upon him and his whole soul aflame with great visions and IdeulB. and yet, unresponsive to them all; Peter, mourning over his failure to be heroic and strong and true when he had thought to play the man—these all are illustrations of the distress and humiliation felt when one has been untrue to the spiritual impulses that have come into his life. Descent Into Darkness. Doubtless there are many who know the deep darkness Into which a good man descends when he has been dis loyal to God’s call In his soul. There Is no deeper sorrow than that which grows out of self-reproach. The Quaker poet did not exaggerate when he said, "Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these—‘It might have been.’ ” There is danger that men and wom en may become so interested in the ambitions and enjoyments of the mate rial world that they shall fall to see the heavenly vision. Sometimes the music of this world sounds so appeal ingly that we fall to catch the celestial music. There were those of old time who merely said that it thundered when the heavenly father himself spoke out of the open skies and said: "This Is my beloved son, hear ye him.” It is a tragedy wh*n the Interests of this present world serve to dull the spiritual apprehension. Keep the soul open to the influences that come from above. Determine that the nature shall always be quick ly sensitive to spiritual impression. Tho way that opens with absolute cer tainty into the deepest satisfaction of the Christian life has over Its gate way this one word—"Obedience.” One has reached great Christian attain ment when he Is able to look back over his life nnd say with confidence: I have not failed to respond when God spoke to me by his spirit, I have not been disobedient unto tho heavenly vision. Limitation a Source of Power. Everywhere wo look we And our life encompassed by limitations. God has “beset us behind and before, and laid his hand upon us.” We see, al so, that this limitation of life is not tho source of weakness, but of man’s highest power and fame. It is not only the little men In little things, ! hut for human life at its best and greatest. The strong man, tho great man, whether hero or artist, poet, thinker, or saint, is not one who bursts tho bonds of law and casts obedience away, but rather one who walks a narrower, severer path than weaker men are able to keep.—Theo dore C. Williams. Strength in Faith. Nothing is so trying to nature as suspense between a faint hope and a mighty fear; but we must have faith as to the extent of cur trials, as in all i else. Our sensitiveness makes us often disposed to fancy that we aro tried beyond our strength; hut we really know' neither our strength to endure nor the nature of Ood s trials. Only he who know? both these, and every turn of the hearts which he has made, knows how to deal out a due proportion. Let us leave It all to him and be content to bear in silence.*— Fenelon. Christian Service. I believe there Is nothin* more want ed amon* our church people than tho touch of service: not asklne for pub lic notice, hut the simple belief that "I am amon* you as lie that servcth." —The Hishop of London. Some work to do. somethin* to care for. and somethin* to hope for. are what make happiness la life — Doctor Chalmers. | Now Comes the Bride No one can toll when the bride of today will introduce the mode of to day In Borne detail of her wedding gown, be it ever so conventional in Htyle. For since her choice of fabrics may lie anywhere from tulle to bro cade, falling upon the lightest or the heaviest or any of the gradations bo* tween, she has as wide a choice In design. This follows because she must adapt style to the fabric, and there fore we have wedding gowns and wedding gowns, no two alike and all Interesting. Hut brides aro apparently of one mind as to the treatment of the bodice. Nearly all of them choose the conven tional long sleeve and the unconven tional V-shaped neck, more or less low. Ab to skirts, they may be short and wide, in thin materials, and untrained. A girlish French model of lace and chiffon was made even a little shorter than ankle length, with wldo panel of lace down the front, broadening to ward the bottom. The skirt flared do cidedly. Having departed in an op posite direction from the conventional mode thus far, the designer appears to have repented. The very long sleeves of chiffon and very high neck in the lace bodice made a humble and contrite apology for the engaging frivolity of the skirt. The veil worn with this gown wns of lace bordored net. ample as to full ness nnd long enough to lie a few Inches on tho floor. Nothing could be much simpler In design than tho splendid wedding gown of one of Now York's spring brides. It wns made of white and sil ver brocade wtlh white satin court train, and cut in tho empire style. Tho skirt and waist were in one. The skirt, long and only moderately full, hung close to the figure. The “baby” waist had a V-shaped neck and very long sleeves of net. The train was bordered with wide lace, and a hand some lace veil was arranged in man tilla fashion over the hair. It fell part ly over the train. JULIA BOTTOMLEY. New Petticoats. Tho phases of the new potticoat are many. We have princess slips of silk, batiste, crepe do chine, held over the shoulders with straps of ribbon and elaborately trimmed about tho hem with wide flounces of lace, plaited organdie, chiffon or net, caught here and there with bouquets of delicately tinted French flowern. They measure from four to six yards about the hem, and sometimes little 1845 pantalettes, made of materials to match tho petticoat, are worn beneath. Convertible Outing Caps The outing cap, which can be easily converted Into an auto bonnet, and la made of stuff that will stand the stress of wind and weather, needs not to be recommended It speaks for Itself and Its talking points are unanswerable. As a rule these caps are made of mercerized poplin or Palm Flea'h cloth, although pongee, taffeta and some other fabrics are occasionally I used. Mercerized poplin and Palm Beach cloth are cotton materials in 1 weaves so attractive that they are often combined with silk and lose ; nothing by this close association with it. Both these materials are washable and strong. I Machine stitching and narrow silk | braid are relied upon to furnish the decorative features In these useful j raps. Sometimes they are used to geth* r. The brirns and crown*, are i oft * ti in contrasting colors, or the i brims are faced with a color different from that In the body of the cap. Pa* I vorlte combinations are those made [ of pongee-colored cloth with bright ereen. blue, black or red Introduced In ' the brim facings. Veils are eitlur of the same color as the body of the cap or like the con trasting color used. They are about two yards long and three-quarters (or less) In width. When the cap is to be I used for motoring they slip through nlldea sewed at the sides of the cap. The brims turn up or down and re* main In almost any position the wear er may want. The veils may bo tied about the cap In big bow’s and become a trimming in an emergency requiring something more pretentious looking than the cap unadorned. The clever girl may be trusted to ring all the changes possible with these classy hits of headwear, which are. by the way, so Inexpensive that everyone may own them. JULIA BOTTOMLEY. New Hst Model. One of the prettiest transparent hat models Is shown In a shop which caters to exclusive patronage, writes a New York correspondent. The crown, a round bunchy, dented tam-o’-shanter, Is of neapolltan and the brim Is naught but a wide stiffened ruffle of rnalines, so full that the ruffle curves up and down bonnily at the edges. If desired, so that, the mallnes will long er keep its shape, the ruffle may be rnpported with satin-covered wire, bent to accommodate the natural curves of the ruffle and extending In 9 few radiating spoken from the crown rs well. If the mallnes ruffle Is un supported by wire, then the mallnes must be renewed from time to time, and h very stiff variety must be ob tained. rtSWtK in PROFISSIONAL UUt P. H.
