Clayton I was coming in home the other morning from my accustomed walk before breakfast, when I met a man in a double quick walk, as I had often met him before, and I said: “Why don’t you stop and take time to get your breath and give me a friendly hand clasp and pass the compliments of the day?” “Oh, if I just had my money out of this business, I would never put another dollar in the mercantile business. There is nothing to it,” was his reply. One night some time ago, as I passed from church, I said to a good woman, “Where’s the boy —your husband?” It was Sun day night. “Oh,” she said, “he’s so tired. Don’t you think when I went back into our room after break fast he had gone to bed and was sleeping!” These men own their own bus iness and are prosperous. But 0, what a strenuous life they are leading! They are up before daylight, early at. their business, and late, yes, very late, getting home at night; and thus it is from year to year, ar.d many of them pass oyer the River with out ever having known what rest is, and with never a moment to meditate upon the wonderful tilings about them. When they come home at night, their fami lies have retired, and they are wearied with the struggles of the day, but so often oppressed with the cares of their business that sleep does not come to their eyelids for hours. And yet, many people who la bor on the farm speak of these business men as having a good time and they themselves are the only ones having a hard time. I do not speak as the inexpe rienced. I was raised on a farm and followed the plow and swung the hoe and axe until I was a grown man, and through all my professional life I longed for a home in the country again. The labor is hard, it’s true, but there is strength to do it, and when you get tired you can sit down and rest. But the business man or the wage earner in the store, with a dozen men and women seeking to be waited on a the sime time, has no chance to rest. However tired the legs may be, they must walk on, and ihe hands must tie, and the mind must figure. I heard a book keeper say he had so many cal culations to make, settling, often till 12:30 at night, that even when he did sleep, he was calcu lating cotton prices and adding nn fiomrts nil thp hnlnnpp nf fhp night, so that really he had no rest, even after he retired for t'ne night. Was not my friend whom I met that morning right when he said “There is nothing to it?” When it rains the customers still come to buy and sell, while the farmer looks out at the clouds from within and says, “The Lord has promised seed time and harvest, and I will not worry, but husband my strength for the future work.” And when the rain is passed and the sunshine comes and the birds sing and the grain and hav wave to and fro in the breeze and the cotton blossoms, and then the fleecy staple opens to sight, and the brown husks of the corn sings an autumn hvmn, he’s in.the midst of it all, catching every breeze ihat comes; and when the cold and icy winter spreads her mantle of white over wood and field, the great hickory and black jack back logs make the cheerful fire that warms without the sooty smoke of our towns and cities. And then when he goes out to view animate nature, the pranc ing of the colt, the lowing of the herd, the grunting of ihe porker, th<} cackling and singing of the fowls and, nearby in the forest, the chattering of the squirrel, make a picture a painter would delight to see and an artist would stand entranced at the sight of. And above it all, every time he swings an axe to cut down the great trees, or passes the hoe between the stalks of cotton, or follows the plow in the furrow, or pitches the hay wiih the fork, or handles the bales of hav when completed, or husks the corn with the joyful song by moon light, or rises early to catch the first song of the birds and to get a breath of the early morning breeze and view the dew drop glistening in the sunbeam, he's |only, doing what the great and I wise prescribe for health!ulness. Oh, for more willing hearts to bask in the sunshine of the Rural Home! _ Drake’s Drum Will Drake’s drum be beaten now for the third time? In the great hall at But kland Abbey in Devonshire, a few miles from Plymouth—the ancestral borne of the family of Sir Francis i Drake—there hangs an ancient drum of a pattern not known these S00 years. It is the famous drum of the great English sea fighter, his companion through j out his whole adventurous career. It. beat the signals on his flagship when he scattered the Spanish Armada; it went with him on i the first, British ship that went | round the world, and it sounded the taps when, after his death j at sea in the West Indies, his body was committed to the wa ; ters of the Atlantic Ocean. When Drake lay dying, so runs the tradition, he commanded his | brother, who was captain of one : of V e ships in the British fleet, to take his drum back to Eng land and hang it in his hall at | Buckland Abbey. Whenever dan get threatened Britain let them sound on that drum, and his spirit would enter into the British admiral and scatter his country’s foes at he had done in the da\s gone by. His brother did as he wa3 commanded, and after three centuries the drum still hangs in Buckland Abbey, which is now in the possession of a descendant ! of Drake’s brother. Twice, runs the legend, ha3 j the drum been sounded—and not in vain; once, in the genera'ion after Drake’s death, when the Butdi sought to wrest the con trol of the seas from the British, and the doughty Admiral van Tromp sailed up the British Channel with a broom at his masthead, to ignif.v that he would sweep the English from the ocean. At its sound the spirit of Di ake entered into Ad miral Blake, who t»jumped over the cot quering Dutch. Acatn, when the genius of Napoleon i 1! I , inreaieneu cue wry ui j the British E^p;rp, ihe drum | was sounded, ai d Drake’s spirit : animated ih^ greatest of English s-a fighters—Admiral N-dson. And now, when Britain is in ! volved in ihe grea est war of her history, it is said that Drake’s drum will again be sounded—<o raise up, if ine legerd le true, the spirit of the old captain lor the 1 hird time. The old tradition is the subject of a poem by an English writer, Hemy Newbolr. Ihe p<>em makes the great sea fighier, dying in his berth, ex claim: Take my drum to England, hang et by the shore, Strike et when your powder’s runnin’ low: If the Dons sight Devon, I’ll quit the port o’ heaven An’ drum them up the Channel as we drummed them long ago. —Youth’s Companion.

Historical Societies The question is often asked, and not infrequently with a sneer: “Of wnat use are such historical societies as the Colonial Dames, the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Cin cinnati, the Sons and the Daugh ters of the Confederacy?" There was a very convincing answer made to this question la^t month at Springfield, III, when the Daughters of 1812 pre sented to the state a bronze me morial tablet, designed to remind coming generations of the part the Illinois volunteers played in our last war with England. These men did not go down to New Orleans and win unending fame with Jackson, but fought at Fort Dearborn, in the north, and probably under Harrison at Tippecanoe. The army of the west did valiant service in driv ing back the invasion from Can ada; but who would ’give them more than a passing thought, as the pages of history are turned, if such associations as these Daughters of 1812 did not set up a forcible reminder? The tablet, which was dedi cated with much ceremony, bears the etched figure of an Illinois ranger of that far period, and a p -ture of Fere Dearborn in the backgmun 1. Under these is the' inscription: “In memory of the patriotic and heroic pioneer service of Il linois s ildiers in the warof 1812, erected by the state of Illinois at the request, of the Unite I Daugh ters of 1812, and dedicated upon the close of 100 years of peace between Great Britain and the U lited State?, Dec. 24, 1914. “They stood between their loved ones and the war’s desola tion.” The women-descendants of those brave men have seen to it that history will not overlook them when the glory harvest is reaped. And this is the kind of work done by all the other patriotic organizations. Tnese women are not setting up any false gods of p^lde of ancestry, nor are they striving to draw lines of caste, dividing themselves as the sheep f-*om the goats. Accusations of rhit. km I are absolutely m s p aced and untrue, and the sug ce^tron originated in the minds of too e v\ ho fail to understand the real purposes of the associa tions , The members of thesr historical “chapters” keep aliv^ the spirit of patriotism by hon oring the memory of the heroes of the past. It is justly said that America has no ruins sucu as Europe can sh >w. But America has localities that are forever haunted by the mem >rtes of old days and bra' e deeds—Lexington, where the emhaMled farmers stool; James t wn and Plymouth Rock, first cradles of English permanence; Independence Hod. with its pro clamation hell; Fort Raleigh, with i s lost colony; Svcamore Shoals, on our own Tennessee river—hundreds of places where colonization drove an entering wedge against savagery; or where, later on, liberty stood on guard avail's" oppression. It. is tee 'ask of these patri >tic organizations tom irk these srio s. rhe obscure as well as the wid-Iy known, as a signal to the t’utur.e that it must never forg t. The time is coming when out of this “melting pot” of America will come the cry; Who were the first builders—who are the makers of this country? And the various patriotic or ganizations, who have kept the •ecords of descent straight, will tie the ones to answer aright. These organizations are doing two things: thev are inculcating in rising generati ms a patriotic pride in the country’s past, and t»y their conscien i >us esi arch and careful preservation of data they are making history easier to write for the archivist of the future.—Commercial Appeal. Mhotional SlliWSOlOOL LESSON (By E. O. SELLERS, Acting Director of Sunday School Course Moody Bible In stitute, Chicago.) LESSON FOR FEBRUARY 21 THE DEATH OF ELI AND HIS SON3. LESSON TEXT I Samuel 4:1-13, IS. GOLDEN TEXT Be yo doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves.—James 1:22 IL V. The Philistines in the days of Ell overran Israel pretty much at will. All Israel, God’s people, soon knew that God was speaking through this new prophet. I. No Help at Ebenezer, vv. 1, 2. Eb enezer was that place where Samuel later set up the stones of commemo ration (I Samuel 7:12). Here the ag gressive Philistines overcame and put to rout the Israelites. Israel had sinned and needed correction (chapter 7:3; Ps. 106:40, 41). When God’s peo ple neglect him they weaken them selves and easily become the prey of their enemies. Pull often the church of today stands defeated and dis graced, nay even turns its back to the enemy, because it harbors sin and sinners in its ranks (Josh. 7:12). II. Seeking Help, w. 3-9. If Israel really desired to know the cause of ineir uiscomuiure iriey uiu not neeu iu i go far to seek it. The trouble was that they were not willing to see and own it (I. Cor. 11:31). The reasoning upon the part of these elders seems to be, “Why tiave we, Israelites, been smitten by these Philistines who are not Cod’s chosen people?” It was absurd and unjust for thorn to have to suffer. We hear this same sort of reasoning today, whereas God would have us probo deeper and search our hearts, for if we regard iniquity in our hearts the Lord will not hear us. At Shiloh, Eli is caring for the ark, and with the fatalism and superstition that will govern the ungodly, Israel sends for it “that it. may save us” (v. 3). The ark contained the tables of the law and was the symbol of the presence of God (Ex. 25:10-22). Their trust was in the ark and not in the God of the ark. Such is ever the dan ger of formalism in religion. To carry the ark about Jericho trusting in Je hovah, was quite different from har boring the sons of Eli, yet thinking that God could not let the ark bo captured. The churches of our land are the saving salt, but “if the salt hath lost its savour,” if Hophni and Phinebas bear the ark, nothing but defeat and disgrace can be expected, though the enemy may tremble (v. 8). The Philistines were strong enough to smite because of the weakness, of Israel. They recognbed the shouts and remembered the mighty deeds of Jehovah, which exploits would have been repeated had Israel truly turned to God. There was good reason for the Philistines to fear. But God was not on the, side of Israel at that time. The Philistines be an to exhort them selves. Their call (v. 9) was a good oue and was used 'iter by Paul (1 Cor. 16:13). For them not to do anything was to be captured by thpir former slave.;. If they fou-ht they cculd but die III. The Lost Bi.ltle, vv. 10-11. God would not succor his chosen people, nor defend the symbols of religion when the spirit and heart of that re ligion had departed (Pa. 78:56-64). The two reprobate sons of Eli were slain as a punishment for their sins and in fullfillment ot' the word of God (chapter 2:12: 3:13, 14). Their pun ishment came in connection with the same holy service they had deliled. IV. The Death of Eli, vv. 12-18. The aged Eli, now ninety-eight years old, was anxiously awaiting news of the battle, “for his heart trembled for the ark of God “ This anxiety was quite unnecessary (v. 13). God can take care of his ark. Eli had reason, how ever, to tremble for Israel and hts wicked sons He is an illustration of those indulgent parents who refuse to use discipline in the care of their children. The ark did not return to Shiloh. After Us various vicissitudes it found an abiding place in the house of Abin adab, whose son Eleaaar was sancti iied to take charge of it. Later it was taken lo Jerusalem, and in the meantime Shiloh passed into oblivion. Ths Golden Text. That we learn to do by doing is a fundamental prin ciple in pedagogy. Mere human words do not change character. Youth does not acquire purity of character by listening to beautiful statements about the virtues. Religion is not a last re source. It must be practiced in youth if it is to give strength, courage and comfort in old age It is not a matter of creed and formula t a life; it is not a convenience but a course of action that governs all of life. ft is not the turning in life’s testing times, td th^se forms f i vhich all life has depar.od. Parents today reein to be lax in discipline. Toe often it is the child that brings up the parent We need to accustom the child to virtue and obedience, to teach him truth while at the knee, that when “he is old he may not depart" therefrom While some children of good parents go astray yet this is not the rule.
