It was frozen in a cake of ice at the Maher ice plant and is exhibited in the window of a market here. - Greenwich, (Conn.) Dispatch to New York World.

GOLDEN TEXT-Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves.-James 1:22 R. V. The Philistines in the days of Eli 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. Full 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, vv. 3-9. If Israel really desired to know the cause of their discomfiture they did not need to 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 have we, Israelites, been smitten by these Philistines who are not God's chosen people?" It was absurd and unjust for them to have to suffer. We hear this same sort of reasoning today, whereas God would have us probe 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 be captured. The churches of our land are the saving salt, but "if the salt hath lost its savotr," if Hophni and It ineaa. bear-th~-r~k, ..ah, .-bi t efat aIt and tgra ero - t e'i hcted, though the enemy may tremble (v. 8). The Philistines were strong enough to smite because of the weakness of Israel. They reeegnized 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 began to exhort them selves. Their call (v. 9) was a good one and was used later by Paul (1 Cor. 16:13). For them not to do anything was to be captured by their former 'slaves. If they fought, they could but die. Ill. The Lost Battle, vv. 10-11. God Swould not succor his chosen people, nor defend the symbols of religion when the spirit and heart of that re ligion had departed (Ps. 78:56-64). The two reprobate sons of Eli were slain as a punishment for their sins and in fullflllment of the word of God (chapter 2:12; 3:13, 14). Their pun ishment came in connection with the same holy service they had defiled. IV. The Death of Eli, wv. 12-18. The aged Ell, now ninety-eight years old, was anxiously awaiting news of the bttle, "for his heart trembled for the I 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 his 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 its various vicissitudes it found an abiding place in the house of Abin adab, whose son Eleazar was sancti fled to take charge of it. Later it was taken to Jerusalem, and Ip the meantime Shiloh passed into oblivion. The 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 Slistening 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 but a life; it is not a convenience but a course of action that governs all of life, It is not the turning in life's testing I times, to those forms from which all life has departed. .Parents today seem to be lax in discipline. Too often it is the child that brings ap 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. A true Christian atmosphere and spirit of service in the home, the Sunday school and the church are the gIreat est possible safeguards for the young. WOMAN WOULD o NOT GIVE UP A Though Sickand Suffering; At Last Found Help in Lydia , E. Pinkham's Vegeta Al ble Compound. Richmond, Pa. - " When I started to taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound I was in a dreadfully rundown state of health, w, had internal trou bles, and was so ex tremely nervous and prostrated that if I had given in to my feelings I would at have been in bed. As it was I had hardly strength at times to be on my n feet and what I did do was by a great effort. I could not sleep at night and of course felt very bad in the morning, and had a steady headache. "After taking the second bottle I no ticed that the headache was not so bad, a I rested better, and my nerves were I stronger. I continued its use until it made a new woman of me, and now I ] can hardly realize that I am able to do so much as I do.

The archbishop of York, in his early days, did a great deal of work among d the uneducated classes, and on one I occasion a very illiterate woman was godmother to a child at a chris- ; tening.

Queer requests are often received for prescriptions, which might puzzle either doctor or chemist, far more skilled than the proprietor of the or dinary drug store. Here is one recent- _ ly reported by Morris Wade: It is a note from an excitable mother, whose nerves were apparently as much in p need of treatment as the digestion of q her infant: "My little baby has et up its father's a parish plaster. Please to send an anec- v dote by the inclosed little girl."- - Youth's Companion.

Every druggist sells resinol oint ment and resinol soap. Adv. Advantage of Silencer. This crash of the bullet makes the value of the Maxim silencer very little, so far as military efficiency is con cerned, in the way that the fiction writer imagines the silencer to be use ful, but not to prevent the enemy from discovering the position of the men firing as many fancy. Its value lies in the fact that it eliminates fully half of the recoil of the rifle from the action of the gases in its chambers, and it gives the offi cers much better control over the fire, because of the lessened noise of the rifles. It cuts down the roar of the Springfleld to about the noise of the .25-20 and thus the roar of the rifles at the firing line is much reduced, and the commands of the officers can be heard.-Outing.
