Parachutes for the whole aeroplane have just been designed by a French inventor. Two folded parachutes, con tained in cone-shaped receptacles, are attached to the wings as near the ends as possible.

GET POWER The Supply Comes From Food. If we get power from food, why not strive to get all the power we can. That Is only possible by selecting food that exactly fits the requirements of the body. "Not knowing how to select the right food to fit my needs, I suffered griev ously for a long time from stomach trouble," writes a lad from a little Western town. "It seemed as if I would never be able to find out the sort of food that was best for me. Hardly anything that I could eat would stay on my stomach. Every attempt gave me heart-burn, and filled my stomach with gad. I got thin ner and thinner until I literally be. came a living skeleton and in time was compelled to keep to my bed. "A few months ago I was persuaded to try Grape-Nuts food, and it had such good effect from the very beginning that I kept up its use. I was surprised at the ease with which I digested it. It proved to be just what I needed. "All my unpleasant symptoms, the heart-burn, the inflated feeling which gave me so much pain, disappeared. My weight gradually increased from 98 to 116 lbs., my figare rounded out, my strength came back, and I am now able to do my housework and enjoy it Grape-Nuts did it." A ten days trial will show anyone some facts about food. Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. Read, "The Road to Welville," in pkgs. "There's a Reason."

SELLERS, Acting Director of Sunday School Course of Moody Bible Institute, Chicago.) LESSON FOR JUNE 13 BLESSEDNESS OF FORGIVENESS. LESSON TEXT-Psalm 32. GOLDEN TEXT-Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered-Psalm 32:1. This psalm is believed to have grown out of David's experience with Nathan (see Rom. 4:6-8). It is the second of the seven so-called "peni tential psalms" (6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, 143). While it is sad, it is at the same time one of the most joyful of all psalms. It is the record of bitter sor row and also of heartfelt praise, and is as vital in its message today as the day it was given to the world. I. The State or Condition of Happl ness. (1) What is happiness? vv. 1, 2. The blessed or happy man is the one whose sin is covered. God only can forgive sin and has plainly set before us his agency, viz., the shed blood. David as king enjoyed the pleasures of life, but he also knew the result of hidden sin, of sins covered. The joy of forgiveness is offered to all who accept God's gift of justifica tion (Acts 10:43). The psalmist seems to multiply words. "Transgression" means rebellion; "sin" to miss the mark (Rom. 3:23); "iniquity," to be crooked. When men try to cover sin we are expressly told the result (Prov. 28:18), but God literally takes away when he forgives and "covers" sin (John 1:29; Ps. 103:12; 85:2). Nei ther man or devil can uncover what he has covered. (2) Who is unhappy? vv. 3, 4. Contrasted with the state or condition of happiness granted to the forgiven sinner is presented that of those unforgiven. David kept silence without only to have a raging tempest within-lips silent, bones "roaring." During the days of David's silence fol lowing his sinful act he was guilty of increased acts of sin and cruelty (2 Sam. 12:31). The origin of the word Selah is not known. It probably indi cated a musical interlude and in this psalm most appropriately and dramat ically appears. (3) How we may be happy, vv. 5, 6. All sin is uncovered to God. His all-seeing eye can pene trate man's futile endeavors to hide i his transgressions. The first step to forgiveness and to happiness is con Sfesson of guilt. God's heavy hand wrought saving faith in David ani such faith has as its first condition i confession, "I acknowledged my sin." i Such confession is full and frank. Nothing is held back nor has it any 3 element of hypocrisy, and it always i secures results (I John 1:9; Luke 15: 20-23). The godly man, the man who Is the recipient of God's grace thus bestowed, prays in a time "when thou mayest be found," or (see margin) "in the time of finding out sin" (v. 6 R. V.). The I prophet tells us that there Is a time when we may not find God (Isa. 55:6) and Paul tells us when he may be found (II Cor. 6:2). II. How to Continue in the State of Being Happy. (1) Our security (v. 7). When men forgive they do not "cover." What God hides he forgets (Isa. 38:17; Micah 7:19). Our. security, our "hid ing place" is Jehovah. Our preserver is Jehovah (Ps. 91:31; Isa. 32:1, 2). Jehovah preserves from trouble those whom he forgives (Ps. 34:19). Such men have a serenity, a "peace" even the "peace of God" which the sinner can never have (Isa. 26:3; Rom. 5:1; Phil. 4:7). (2) Our instructor (vv. 8, 9). (a) Positively-we have one who not only forgives and blots out the past but one who has promised to "instruct," to "teach" and to "guide." Nearly all believe that the introduc tion of the personal pronouns in verse 8 indicate that God is speaking in response to David's appeal recorded in verse 6. Jehovah guides with his "eye upon" us (v. 8 R. V.) He instructs us by his spirit through his Word (Ps, 119:105; John 16:13). (b) Neg atively-Some must needs be directed by "bit and bridle." Some have to learn through bitter experience. We have our choice. Those who will not listen to instruction are compared to the horse and the mule who "have no understanding." Even so they are more useful than those who wildly run after sin. Only thus can some "come near" (v. 9 R. V.) though that is better than not to be brought near at alL (3) Our faith (v. 9). What kind of a life will God's forgiven chil dren live? What is one of the fore most characteristics of a happy life? Here is the answer, "He that trusteth in the Lord." This is the conclusion of the whole matter. Our only joy is in the Lord "who hath done marvelous things whereof we are glad." Christ is the incarnate mercy and grace of God. In him we have God's forgiveness. He supplies our every need (Phil. 4;19). He pardons, heals, restores, di rects, gives power (Matt. 38:18-20). Joy and impurity are never compan ions. Only the pure can purify. Only the healthy can heal. Only the right eous azd free can pardon. "Rejoice in Jehovah! and leap fol joy, O righteousl and gladly shout all ye upright in heart."-Maclaren. To shout a godly and acceptable shout demands that we be "apright in heart STOP CALOMEL! TAKE DODSON'S LIVER TONE New Discovery!

SHOE TOKEN OF SUBJECTION Ancient Significance of Custom Which Is Now Looked Upon as Merely a Joke. As specially applied to weddings, a there is a suspicion that the throwing of old shoes-or new slippers, for all 6 that-had at first a significance which C surely would be most objectionable to twentieth-century brides. It seems to have been a token of the complete subjection of the bride to her lord and master. In the East a shoe or a slipper was publicly borne at the head of the bridal procession in indication of the bride's subjection, and at some Jewish weddings the bridegroom used to strike the bride a blow with his shoe as a sign that she was thereafter b to be submissive to his will. Among r the Nestorians it was the custom for the bridegroom to kick the bride, and for her to remove from his foot the shoe with which he had kicked her. To this day there is a common cus tom in Russia for the bridegroom on his wedding night to require the bride to pull off his boots. In one of them is a whip, and in the other a gift. If d she pulls off first the one containing the whip, she gets a stroke from the lash, and is to expectt1~d after, but -it theept'.etds` her married life will be happy. It is related of Martin Luther that once, after performing the wedding cere mony for a couple, he took off the bridegroom's shoe and placed it upon ii the bride's pillow, as a sign that she a should be in all things and at all times c subservient to her husband.

The prohibition of selling brandy in the government monopoly shops was introduced throughout the Rus sian empire from the beginning of the war, on the day of mobilization, and has now been in force for more than eight months. One of the Rus sian papers has made inquiries con egrning the results of this measure, and has published some of tje statis tical data that was collected. The following list shows the consump tion of vodka in the city of Moscow in 1914 compared with the preceding year: July, 612,686 gallons in 1913 and 359,124 gallons in 1914; August, 667,926 gallons in 1913 and 23,373 gal lons in 1914; October, 707,688 gallons in 1913 and 2,913 gallons in 1914.

That there are handsome rewards si for those who are able to devise im- gl provements in guns and machinery is shown in sums that have been paid in fees to inventors at army ordnance oi factories for the year ending March, b, 1914. No less than £4,000, for in stance, was paid to Col. C. L. Holden, late superintendent of the royal gun tl and carriage factories, for various in- B ventions and improvements connected with ordnance mountings, machine tools, etc., in addition to £500 paid on another account; while £2,850 was paid to Mr. W. T. Thomson, chemist and manager, at different times, of the Royal Gunpowder factory, for improve ments in the manufacture of nitro cellulose and accompanying apparatus, in addition to a previous £1,150. Smaller amounts, such as £250 to I Mr. W. H. Turton, manager of the Royal Gun factory, for improved ma chines for the manufacture of ord nance; £100 to Mr. W. Lambert for a process for testing steel bullets; £25 each to William Rogers and E. F.
