A NERVOUS WRECK Mrs. Green Gained 26 Pounds and Recovered Her Health by Taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. General debility is a term that covers a multitude of cases where there is no acute disease, yet the patient continues to lose strength and the doctor's medi cines have no apparent effect. This is the decline that leads to death if means are not found to check it. In a great majority of cases Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will check it and restore health and strength because they actually make new blood and so send renewed vitality to every organ and tissue of the body. Mrs. S. A. Green, whose address is Box 29, R. F. D. No. 4, Franklin, Ga., says: "For three and a half years I suffered with weakness and nervous. ness, complicated with stomach trouble. At times I was confined to my bed for periods ranging from three weeks to two months and was under the physician's care most of the time for three years. I do not know the cause of my trouble but I was prostrated with weakness and, al. though I took a great deal of medicine, nothing seemed to give me strength. At times my stomach hurt me something fearful and my head often troubled me. I was sleepless and what sleep I did get did not refresh tne. " When I begau taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, I weighed but 104 pounds. I knew I was so bad that a few doses would not cure me and I had patience. Soon the pills began to give ne strength, my blood got in better condition, I could sleepwellat night and help sonie with the housework. Now I weigh 130 pounds and think nothing of walking half a mile. Dr.Williams' Pink Pills have done won ders for me and the neighbors all know this statement is true."

S. Edson.) Scripture Authority: - Numbers, chapter 11, also Psalm 106:14,15, and t Cor. 10:6. f++++++++++++++++ +++++++4. SERMONETTE. This experience of the chil- 4 dren of Israel in the wilder ness prefigures the experience which often comes to the Chris tian. At God's call he has de parted from Egypt. even as Is rael left Egypt, but somewhere + on the journey the memory of the indulgences of the past, the allurements of the world, draw Sfalls to lusting for the old, life and the old indulgences. But as Paul says in 1 Cor. 10:6, in re ferring to the incident: "Now these things were our example to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they (the children of Israel) also lusted." The Christian must also rec ognize the fact that that which the flesh desires is often un wholesome for the soul. "For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye + would."-Gal. 5:17. But how often does the Christian fall into the snare of the devil, how often does he per mit the love of the world and the things of the world to draw him away from God'. He falls to lusting for the fleshpots of Egypt, and turns from God's manna, so graciously provided. + And then perhaps the heart is + so set upon its way of evil that at last God gives the soul up + to its passions and lust, even + as when "Israel lusted exceed + Ingly in the wilderness and + tempted God in the desert, he + gave them their request; but + + sent leanness into their souls." + + Sad indeed is the condition + + of that soul which barters + + God's manna for the flesh pots + + of the worl'. + + There is many a lean soul + + smothered out of sight under a + full stomach. + He who feeds the lust of the + flesh starves the soul. + The only way some souls will + learn the folly of sin is by + + reaping its dire consequences. ` Unbridled indulgence of an + appetite will result disastrously. + Hunger was not the incen- + tive to murmuring and discon- + + tent, for Israel had God's manna, given fresh every day, + but it was the result of yield- o ing to the fleshly desires. And it is so with the Christian, for i love of the world and the things of the world does not come be cause Gc cannot satisfy, but + because the Christian will not + + sit at God's table and satisfy + his soul with the good things he has provided.. "O taste and see that the Lord is good." + God knows best the needs of + man, and his manna, like his + mercies, are fresh every day. ++++÷+++++++++++++++++++> THE STORY. THERE lay the people amidst the Sheaps of quail, where they had fallen from mere exhaustion after two days and a night spent in killipg and dressing the birds which had so mi raculously flown in upon the camp. Moses turned away from the sight, disgust and sorrow struggling for the mastery. Could this be God's people? Were they the children of Abraham, journeying towards a land of promise? or were they beasts of the field with never a thought that went higher than their stomachs and the food with which to fill them? Three days before the murmuring in the camp had reached its climax. A large part of the people had spoken bitterly of the manna which God had so faithfully provided for their needs every morning, saying that they could not eat it longer, and refusing to go out and gather the portion for that day. And God had beard the com plaining and had driven in upon the camp great multitudes of quail, so that the people forgot all else in their mad haste to gather, gather, gather, lest, as they said, they should not have enough; not stopping to think that the God who sent the birds upon them could keep them supplied. But no, all else was forgotten in their gluttonous eagerness. All that first day and that night and the next day following, with scarcely a rest, the men stood up and gathered the quail in great heaps, while the women and the children worked with equal zeal in dressing and salting down the birds after the manner of preparing fish in Egypt. And at last when almost the last bird had been captured and darkness had again settled down upon the camp, the people utterly exhaust. ed with their efforts had thrown themn selves upon the ground where they had been working and fell into that heavy slumber which conimes from ut ter exhaustion. And there Moses had found them early on the morning of the third day as he went forth with the few others to gather the daily portion of manna, tor not all among the children of Is rael had so utterly abandoned them, selves to the lust for flesh that they had forgotten God's claim upon them. Silently the people gathe!:ed their portions of manna, for they noted the grief-stricken countenance of their leader, and no man durst ask him why, for they knew instinctively that it was the bestial conduct of the slumbering Israelites that troubled him. Joshua had stood at his si7c when he had tried to arouse one of 'te fel lows without success. The (cly re sponse he could get was for the fel low to sweep his arms about as though in the act or catching more quail, and then lifting to his mouth the half-eaten bird which he still grasped in his hand and taking an other bite of the flesh and munching it slowly, as he dropped off into anoth er deep slumber. And Joshua had noted the look of deep aversion and dis gust with which Moses had turned away from the scene, and as they reached the borders of the -amp and began to gather the manna, lying round and white all about upon the grass and bushes, he ventured the re mark: "Shall we destroy them even as R did those who turned from God at Mount Sinai, and would not obey when the golden calf was destroyed?" Moses shook his head sadly, and for some minutes did not speak. Then, turning and sweeping his hand to wards the place in the camp where the people rested amidst the heaps of birds, he said, slowly: "God has abandoned them to their lust, and should we act as judges in his behalf? Nay, rather must we abide the time when their lust shall have come to the full. Verily, the people will bring upon themselves some dreadful thing by their inor dinate indulgence." That day and for many days there after the people were fairly drunken with the flesh of the quail. No longer did the people go forth as on former days for the manna which God so faithfully provided each morning; all save those who had not utterly aban doned themselves to the lust of the flesh and had not forgotten that God would have them eat of his manna from heaven. S"Hlo, ho," they said, "Why should the slumbers of the morning be º broken by this distasteful task of gathering the manna. We have tired of that sickening food, and now we have flesh to eat, and that in abund ance, we will not gather manna, neither will we eat of it any more." º And so it was that there soon came to be a marked division among the people. Those who following the º lead of Moses went daily to the out skirts of the camp, and not only found º the manna, but that invigorating fel lowship which comes from reliance k upon God and doing his will, and those who gave themselves up to the appetites and lusts and fed to the full upon the flesh which they had gath ered. Thus matters stood in the camp of Israel when one day it was rumored º that sickness hadt broken out among the people. Moses went out to inves tigate and he found that. thee - wore indeed tlose who were ill, but when he admonished them to give up their' evil ways and turn to the L ',l, t,,y "-"What woutl you have us do?

So it is ever with the soni that lIa:s Sgiven itself utterly to tihe giatifica tion of the hleshly desires. It dos not seem that anything els( can ever satisfy but that which feeds lthe gross er desires, and so tlhere is the cling Sing to that which means certain dis ease and death, and thl turning front that which would give life and health e and satisfaction. d As the days went by the sickness o like a scourge swept through the d canlp, andti the stricken ones. no long i- er able to eat of the flesh which now . they loathed, begged succor of those t, who daily gathered the manna, but as e each household had only for its own ? needs, they were piowerless to help. , Again Moses plealdedl with themn ? that they rise and gather the manna h for themselves, but the people would n not, for as soon as they began to h get better, having refrained from par taking- of the flesh, they again chose g the quail, saying that they could not . eat the manna and live. n Discouraged and saddened, Moses d withdrew, realizing that it was use s less for him to further attpeal to the d people to turn to the Iord, but that o he must let the sin of the people rmi t its course. Soon death was stalking a- through the camp of Israel, and with ie grim hand was claiming the Ipeople by to the scores and the hundreds. Whole ir families were wiped out and the por r, tion of Israel that had refrained from >t eating the flesh to the full, and hadl k gathered the daily portion of manna in were forced to bear the dead to their it graves and bury them. Ir But among those dying hosts of Is t rael there were some who turned to y the Lord in their extremity, and who, te although sick, and wan and weak, 11 dragged their weary bodies from id among the dead and the dying, andi al sought the place where the Lord's is manna lay. To such there came the n healing mercy of the Lord, for sin t repented of always brings forgiveness, d but sin persisted in brings farth n death, for the wages of sin is death. t- And this story of Israel's lust after n- the things of the flesh is told for our y edification and to show us of to-day, it who find the world and the things of t- the world, alluring, that we "should not lust after evil things," for God m may indeed give us the desire of our iy hearts, but with it will come lean rs ness of soul as will shut God and his a, blessing out.

Bitter and embarrassing experiences have led her long-suffering mother to recognize this fact. Accordingly, when accidents in the 1 Kitchen and the expectation of guests a to dine, rendered the purchase of new a water glasses necessary, Mrs. S e took her daughter into her confidence. "Sarah," she said, "these are new glasses. I bought them at Stearns' yesterday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock. Robert drove me over to the shop with Jim and the runabout. Robert wore his 'butternut' livery and his brown derby. I paid six dollars for the glasses, and had them sent. Now you know all about them, and I positively forbid you to ask a single question about them when you see them on the table." Sarah wore a subdued look during the process of the meal, and Mrs. S-- was beginning to congratulate herself upon the effectiveness of her lesson, when an eager and interested expression came into Sarah's face, and she piped in her shrill but engaging voice: "Mother, what did you do with the old glasses?"
