Esther Was Alarmed.
Esther, a five-year-old daughter of
North side parent, heard much about
the dangers of diphtheria, and was
eager to observe every precaution to
keep from coming into contact with
it, that she and her two brothers
might not "catch it."
One day she insisted on going to I
the grocery on the corner to spend
her penny, and was warned by her
mother not to stop and play with any
children she might meet on the way. 1
After having been gone only a few C
minutes, she rushed into the house
much excited, exclaiming as she en- (
"Mamma, you must keep 'ose boys y
away from Mr. A.'s house, 'cause they
have diphtheria and have a sign
Her mother said: "Is that so? What
does the sign say?" ,ý
It says f-o-r s-a-1-e," said Esther.- fi

,he Knock for Chore Man.
It was a flash of genius that in
ild spired a Connecticut man to put
ed wheels on an ash can. And when in
Ip addition to this he affixed a handle,
which also acts as a brake, he puts
the chore man almost out of business.
nd For the head of the house can now
roll his own ash can out to the curb,
if he is not too proud to do so, with
er- out any trouble at all and without
Br soiling his clothes. The can is
mounted on a pair of small wheels
re. and the handle is hinged to the side.
er A bolt at the bottom engages the
t cross bar of the handle and locks
th Ash Can on Wheels.
n the latter in a vertical position when
to it is not in use as a pusher. Thus
d the ends of the handle act as a brake
and prevent the can from rolling
away by itself or from upsetting, as
it would otherwise do with only two
centered wheels to rest upon.

It In Germany the granulated slag

making of slag brick is no new thing,
but heretofore fluid slag has been
employed for the purpose, and the

unsuitable for building purposes, be

Ever since men began to kill each

share of their leisure time has been
devoted to the elevating of inventing
S instruments for that killing.
It is curious that crudities still ap
ut pear in the weapons which the
geniuses of centuries have labored
to perfect and that our eye should
be opened at this late day to almost
n- ludicrous imperfections in our most

Eleven hundred and twenty-five
shots to the hour from a gun that is
carried in the hand and fired from
the shoulder is a high record. If that
gun is smokeless and kickless, it is
convenient to handle and but little
trouble to operate.
The weapon has already taken rank

doubtless become a part of the arma

tap LESSON FOR FEBRUARY 11.
mid THE BOY JESUS IN THE TEMPLE.

ifle. GOLDEN TEXT-"How is it that ye
sought me? Wist ye not that I must be
the about my Father's business."-Luke ::49.
one MEMORY VERSES--4G, 47.
ced This lesson is the one solitary in
ing stance recorded in the strangely seal
'om ed thirty years of the Master's life.
has Here is an illustration of what is
the meant by the inspiration of election
lers -only those things that were of vital
uss and redemptive importance in the life
ted of Jesus are recorded. John says,
fast "Many other signs truly did Jesus
ose which are not written in this book:
But these are written, that ye might
live believe that Jesus is the Christ, the
t is son of God; and that believing ye
om might have life through his name."
hat For this reasgn, we should value every
is word that is written.
ttle The lesson furnishes a model in
character building for the youth.
ink Jesus is the example, and the model
Sllboy. Jesus was a real boy. He ate,
a. drank, played, grew, asked questions,
!s. Just as other boys do.
His character, like all other char
acter building, was a growth: "He in
ER creased in wisdom and stature." No
character is instantaneous; it is the
ore work of growth and of years, indeed,
of a lifetime. An icicle is formed drop
by drop. Character is formed by sin
gle words and acts. A mushroom may
grow in a night, but surely not the
)k character of a man. Just as words
- and sentences are formed by means
me of the single letters of the alphabet,
ide so words, thoughts, deeds, ,actions,
-S. looks, motives-these are the alphabet
of from which we spell character. Sow
a thought, and reap a word; sow a
of word, and reap an act; sow an act,
and reap a habit; sow a habit, and
ad reap a character; sow a character, and
reap a destiny.
Christ's character was developed in
the home. He had a Christian home
the greatest gift of God this side of
heaven. What chance has many a
child today to build character in a
home where the parents know not God,
never read the Bible, never pray, nev
er go to church! If for no other rea
son, parents should become Christians
for their children's sake. If our chil
dren are lost, we parents are to blame,
unless we have set before them the
example of a Christian life.
As a boy, Christ was obeUdent to his
rets. This was -a manly thing.
i Parents are in the place of God to the
child: God cannot be everywhere, so
he made parents. The first command- I
ment on the second table is obediende
to parents, and it is the first com
mandment with a promise. The apron
b strings of the mother may become the
reins of government of the nation, We
must obey before we can command.
The character of Jesus was develop
ed in the church also. His parents
were churchgoers, and they had cul
tivated that habit in the child. In
speaking of Jesus as a churchgoer,
Luke says that "as his custom was,
he went into the synagogue." What
great thoughts must have come to the
mind of Christ as he visited the tem
Sple! What dormant potentialities were
aroused as he sat and listened to the
Sexposition of God's word! Humanly
Ispeaking, Christ owed a great deal in.
* the development of his character to
,g his attendance at the temple. Can a
Is symmetrical character be produced
he outside of the church and religion?
We think not; certainly the best char
racter cannot be produced in one who
ir- ignores these. In spite of all her fail
ures, the church is the best institution
al in the world today for the building of
;d character. We do our children a great
;wrong when we deprive them of the
b- privileges of the church.
or' But Jesus was also a member of the
Bible school-the teaching part of the
re church. This is evident from the fact
m that the instruction received was in
d, answering and asking questions. No
e doubt many of the Scripture passages
re quoted by him were learned in the
S Jewish Bible school.
The boy Jesus was an interested
as well as an interesting scholar in
is the school. He was no mere visitor.
SHe came with a well prepared lesson,
ind that indicated that he had studied

e tion of his parents. What a lesson for
a parents today!
