CASE of Mrs, HAM
Declares Lydia E. Pinkham's
Saved Her Life
Shamrock, Mo.- " I feel it my duty
to tell the public the condition of my
health before using
your medicine. I had
tion and congestion,
pains in both sides,
backaches and bear
ing down pains, was
short of memory,
nights, and had
neither strength nor
energy. There wa3 always a fear and
dread in my mind, I had cold, nervous,
weak spells, hot flashes over my body.
I had a place in my right side that was
so sore that I could hardly bear the
weight of my clothes. I tried medicines
and doctors, but they did me little good,
and I never expected to get out again.
I got Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound and Blood Purifier, and I cer
tainly would have been in grave or in an
asylum if your medicines had not saved
me. But now I can work all day, sleep
well at night, eat anything I want, have
no hot flashes or weak, nervous spells.
All pains, aches, fears and dreads are
gone, my house, children and husband
are no longer neglected, as I am almost
entirely free of the bad symptoms I had
before taking your remedies, and all is
pleasure and happiness in my home."

LESSON FOR MAY 30
BRINGS ARK TO JERUSALEM.
LESSON TEXT-II Samuel 6:12-19 and
Psalm 24. tStudy all of chapter t.)
GOLDEN TEXT-1 was glad when they
said unto me. Let us go unto the house
of the Lord.-Psalm 122:1.
This event probably occurred B. C.
1042, in the twenty-second year of
David's reign. It would be a good
plan to assign to various pupils such
subjects as: (a, What the ark was
and how it came to be lost; (b)
Where it had been since the days of
Joshua; (c) What occurred to it while
in possession of the Philistines; (d)
Who was Obed-edom? (e) Uzziah? (f)
Michal? (g) How Jerusalem came to
be the seat of government.
I. The Ark Recovered, vv. 1-5. David
realized that while God was the
God of all the tribes, still there was
no visible religious center; there was
the consequent danger of confound
ing the local place of worship with
that of some local Baal (god) and the
possible breaking up of the national
reliance upon Jehovah. Where Kir
jath-jearim was is not definitely
known, but perhaps it was eight or
ten miles west of Jerusalem. The ark
had lodged here for perhaps seventy
years. David and they that were with
him followed the example of the Phil
lstines (I Sam. 6:1-18) in their mode
of transferring the ark rather than to
have it carried upon the shoulders of
the priests (Josh. 3:3). Preceded by
"David and the house of Israel," i. e.,
leaders of the people and all others
present, they began the return jour
ney from the house of Abinadab.
II. The Ark Retarded, vv. 6-11.
They had reached one of the open
places used as a threshing floor when
the oxen slipped and the cart was
shaken. Uzziah, one of the two into
whose charge it had been placed, laid
hold of the ark to keep it from fall
ing. Why was he slain therefore? We
have already suggested the reason.
How to carry the ark was plainly writ
ten (Num. 4:5-12; 7:9). Neglect of
God's word gets many well-meaning
people into trouble, along with their
friends, also. The ark was the sym
bol of God's presence, and men had
to be taught to revere his holy name
and his glorious presence (see last
clause v. 2). Ussiah's sin was the sin'
of irreverence. He seems not to
have sensed the invisible God in his
visible abode. The result struck ter
ror into the heart of David and the
people, and the ark was left in the
house of Obed of Edom for a period
of three months. David's "improved
plan" was a proved failure.
III. The Ark Restored, vv. 9.19.
David, by thus abandoning the ark,
seems to have resented the judgment
of God, yet he must have realized
that God had sufficient cause for his
acts. The ark is a type of Christ,
who is Immanuel, God with us. The
ark contained the law of God, as
Christ enshrined the will of his Fa
ther. Over the law was the blood
sprinkled mercy seat where God met
his people (Ex. 25:18-22). In Christ
we find our mercy seat where we
meet God. Though this ark brought
judgment to Uzziah it brought bless
ing to Obed-edom (v. 12). Even so
Christ brings judgment or joy accord
ing to our treatment of him. Obed
edom so piously cared for the ark that
both he and his household were rich
ly blessed. If Christ is really in our
hearts we will be blessed, and Christ
IV. The Psalm of Praise, Ps. 24.
In the Jewish synagogue this psalm
is recited at the carrying back of the
book of the law to its shrine, and in
the Greek church at the consecration
of the church. The twenty-second
psalm presents the suffering Savior;
the twenty-third presents the risen
Savior as the shepherd caring for and
leading his sheep, and the twenty
fourth tells of the reigning, glorified
Lord. The whole earth is Jehovah's
(v. 1) and no incident better teaches
the converse, vis., that he is God of
the earth and not a mere tribal deity. I
He "tounded" and "established" it,
and all "the fullnecs," and "they that
dwqll therein" are his by creative and
redemptive right Since we belong
to him we owe him worship and serv
ice-and a servant is one who
"stands" v. 3). The conditions of fel
lowship with Jehovah are "clean
hands and a pure heart" (v. 4), those
who deal with honesty and reverence.
"Vanity" and "idolatry" are frequently
The first and the fourth condition
relate to others, the second and the
third to one's inner life (see I John
The reward of acceptable worship
and service is "blessing from the
Lord" (v. 5). In verse eight we find
Israel's great name for God first used
in the Psalms.
He Is gloriously strong; this Lord
of the hosts of heaven.
In I Cor. 2:8, Jesus who was cruci
fied is called the "Lord of Glory." Even
so our coming King is "strong and
Mighty" and will prove himself
"mighty In battle" (see Rev. 19:19-21).
When he, the King of Glory, leads
captivity captive all of hibs followers

One of the most famous bands is
that of the Royal artillery. Many per

the musical world have been connect
ed with the Royal artillery or its band.
Among them was Sims Reeves, who
was the son of a bandsman, and who,
in his boyhood, sang in the military
choir at Woolwich. It is, perhaps, not
well known that the Royal artillery
band is fifty years older than the
Philharmonic society, having been
formed in 1762. It has done much for
the advancement of music in England,
and has always enjoyed the advantage
of having a succession of eminent mu
sicians as bandmasters. It has always
been double-handed; that is to say,
the players are as proficient on
stringed instruments as on wind, and
can at any time assume the character
of an orchestra.
