JUNIOR TOPIC.-Hilkiah Discovers the Lost Bible. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC. How to Make the Bible Our Own. YOUNQ PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC. -The Authority and Influence of the Bible. About a hundred years elapsed be tween the reformation under Hezekiah and that of Josluh. Some time during this time the book of God's law had been lost. Two wicked kings had reigned in this Interval. The Lord had given Hezekiah much wealth. His son Mnnasseh, coming Into possession of his father's property, and being un godly, would naturally neglect the Bible, If not purposely try to put It from sight. Those who do .not obey the law of God, are usually Interested In putting it out of sight I. The Book of the Law Found (vv. 14-17). 1. The Occasion (v. 14). It was while repairing the temple during Joslah's reformation that the law was discovered. 2. The Book Delivered to the King (vv. 15-17). Upon making a report to the king of work done, the king was told of the finding of the book of the law by Hllkluh, and the book delivered to him. II. The Effect of tha Reading of the Law (vv. 18-28). Shaphan the Scribe read the law before the king. 1. The King Rent His Clothes (v. 19). As the law was rend before him he was led to realize more seriously the awful extent of the nation's departure from God. He knew that sin merited punishment. The function of the law Is to reveal sin. The man who will honestly hear the demands of God's law will fall upon his knees before God and cry for mercy. The rending of the royal" robes indicated that the king was penitently sorrowful. 2. The King Sent a Deputation to Make Inquiry of the Lord (vv. 20, 21). The king included himself in the guilt before God. "Go inquire for me and for them that are left, for great is the wrath of the Lord that is poured out upon us." JIIs sense of sin was so keen that he sent them to Inquire as to whether there was any means of averting the judgments of the Lord. Instinctively the human heart turns from God"s threatening judgments to a means of escape. The soul that sorrows for sin inquires for a way of escape. The law prepares for the gospel. The law Is our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ. The soul under condemnation Inquires, "What must I do to be saved?" 3. The Message of Huldah, , the Prophetess (vv. 22-28). (1) Confirma tion of what the law said (vv. 22-25). She said that all the curses written In the law must fall, for the sins had been so flagrant that God's wrath could not be restrained. Destruction was hanging over Jerusalem and ll was too late to avert it. 1. was not too late to repent to obtain mercy from God, but the outward con sequence of sin must be realized. This finds fulfillment on every hand today. The murderer must hang. His soul may go directly to heaven, provided he has accepted Jesus Christ. (2) Acceptance of Joslah's repentance (vv. 20-28). Because of his tenderness of heart and deep penitence, the Lord said he should ba gathered to his grave In peace, and should not see all the evil to be brought on Jerusalem and Its people. What Huldah said was true even though Josluh died in battle (35: 23-25). When God ac cepts a man and forgives him, his death la a peaceful one even though It mny be on the battlefield. God's presence Is with him and lie thus will go straight to the heavenly home. III. The Law Obeyed (vv. 29-33). 1. The King Read the Law (vv. 20, 80). He gathered together the In habitants of Jerusalem, Including the priests, Levltes and elders, and read unto them the law. 2. The King Made a Covenant Be fore the Lord to Keep His Command ments and Testimonies (vv. 31. 32). This was done sincerely with all his heart and soul. He caused all that were present to stand to It. 3. The king took away all the abominations out of all the countries that pertained to Israel (v. 33). All the days of the king they departed not from following after Mie Lord. Friendships of Youth. There are few things that affect our lives as deeply as the friendships we make in youth. Those are the forma tive years, and the closer the friend ship, the greater the Influence. Those are our imitative years and we Imitate those whom we love or admire. Char acter then Is as plastic us clay In the potter's hand. Would that every young person were blessed with one staunch and true friend, whose in fluence would always be for troth and righteousness. The best friend of all Is our Lord, and next to Him are those who take Him as their guide and master. The Greatest Wealth. Take your duty, and be strong In It as God will make you strong. The harder it Is, the stronger in fact you will be. Understand, also, thnt the great question here Is, not what you will get, but what you will become. The grr .st wealtli you can ever get will be In yourself. Take your burdens and troubles and losses and wrongs. If come the- must and will, as your op portunity, knowing that God has gird ifd you for greater thing. than these. viorace ButUnelL 3 THF CABINET l3 Copyright. 1J, Waatarn Newapapsr Union.

Slump In Microscopes. The general depression In the op tical trade is being felt very severely by British microscope makers, most of whom are working with reduced staffs. Some are only working alter nate weeks. This Is partly due, no doubt, to overproduction during the war, when a large number of micro scopes were supplied to the order of the government, but even taking this Into account, the demand Is now ab normally small. With hospitals pov erty Is a natural excuse, but In other cases, such as that of school, It Is not so easy to explain why so few new Instruments are being purchased. Ac cording to one large firm the great majority of microscopes now pur chased are for purposes connected with mineralogy. Manchester Guar dian.

ODD CURE FOR RHEUMATISM Might Have Been Effective In 1742, But One Would Hesitate to Recommend It Rheumatism Is associated with a greater number of superstitions than any other complaint. In Holland there are people who be lieve that a potato begged or stolen Is an effective preventive, while chest nuts are said to possess the same efficacy. In the Midlands of England the right forefoot of a hare, carried In the pocket, Is regarded as a fine amulet, and the Cornish villager Is apt to put his trust In a piece of the wood of the mountain ash. Perhaps the strangest "cure" for rheumatism Is that which Is to be found In the "Compleat Housewife, or Accomplished , Gentlewoman's Com panion" a work published In 1742; "Let the party take of the finest glazed gunpowder as much as a large thimble may hold, wet It with a spoon with milk from the cow, and drink a good half-pint of warm milk after It; be covered warm In bed and sweat ; give It fasting about seven In the morning, and take this nine or ten mornings together."

Donovan, authority on Chinese customs, In an article called "Romance In Chinese Literature," published in the Forum, writes; "The ideal of beauty and the mark of gentility for a woman used to be small feet, the compression of which was not Imposed by law but was a craze of fashion, as slender waists were at one time In England. Several accounts are given as to the origin of the custom of foot-binding, but proba bly the following Is the correct one: "It is said that Yao Niang, the beau tiful concubine of Emperor Ll Yu (975 A. D.), was light and graceful In all her movements, being able to dance with ease and elegance. She gave so much pleasure to her lord and master that he caused to be made golden lily flowers with movable petals for Yao Niang to walk on from her apartments to the palace. To gratify the emperor still further, she compressed her feet, In order that they might look like a H'y bud. unopened, until they were three Inches long." Just tha Person.
