Last Word in Hats
Net and lace hats, milans faced with velvet, hair braids, leghorns and lingerie hats, and especially net and lace, these are the words most often on the lips of the milliner just now. Hair braids- for those who can afford them- undisputed queens among hats for the hot weather, are not pictured here, but everyone knows their beauti ful texture and their durability. it is peculiar that the milan, which is heavier than any other of the mid summer braids, should ho so often chosen, it is really a matter of habit with th<> milliner to put before her peopb the milan, large, comfortable an ! simply trimmed, for an all-round midsummer hat. Vivid shades of go *‘n, with the golden yellow of the i.'.i.an gives a color combination that is nev. r tiresome. The decoration is usually a feather of some sort in tbo same color and a flange or facing of velvet. Jn-t now a pretty idea is a cluster nt lilat blossoms tit the side of a hr i ! ' rimmed shape with one or two sprays standing; these hloss us are tinted to the color of the hat and sham off to lighter tones. A milan. hr Hi 'atic'i is trimmed with lilacs in lit t >• "<>w shading off to white. A single Master lily in black velvet imtki a telling touch, arranged in the !.'■('■ hr portieti of the spray. Hu have not queened it as usual t!.i- nuniurr, for all other blossoms 1 i v > claimed attention. Hut rose wria'hs and sprays of large roses are featured on midsummer hats, at the moment. Small dune roses have been in demand and promise to continue in demand until we say goodby to the summer months. To return to the useful milan, a i lovely example, faced with black vel vet, and trimmed with a garland of pale pink tulle roses is about as happy a combination as has sprung from the fancy of millinery designers so ftir. The rose garland on hats and on gowns gives the most genuine pleasure, and in the delicate tulle, with pink at the center, shading out to white in the outer petals, a rose of fairyland, a sort of rosy ghost of the blossom, charms everyone who sees it. It is very lovely and very fragile. Big hats of net shirred to frames of tine silk wire and having crowns that are clouds of puffed net, form back 1 grounds for the large tulle roses : which stand at the side. Nothing but the flower and the foliage is needed, I except 1 lie stems which aremadecare ! fully lifelike, even to the thorns. \ These are of rubber and have no ! sting. They do not need it. In a hand-made lace or net hat there is ting enough this season in the price ticket. Hut the day of cheap niiiii j nerv is almost gone; people want fin*' ■ things nowadays anil must pay for I skill ami work. Perhaps they do so . more cheerfully when the subject to be considered is a hat than at any other time. JULIA BOTTOMLEY.

I The Parable of the Tares Sunday School Lojton for June 26, 1910 Specially Arrangerl forThn Paper H_ liT’imiiiU.» --az vrcy-apxjmi EESSON TEXT —Matthew 13:34 3n, 3G-43. Mfm--ry verses. 37, 33. GOI.tSeN TEXT.—"Then shall the right- -.is shine fi-rth ns the sun in the king.him of their Father.’’—Matt. 13-43. TIME -Autumn of A. IX 3.3. PEACE.—On the shore of the Sea of Galilee, probably not far from Caper naum. Suggestion and Practical Thought. This parable helped the disciples to understand some problems that con tinually presented themselves In their thoughts about the kingdom of heaven. It Is a picture of the con tending forces of good and evil In the world; and the victory of the good. The Good Seed —Vs. 24, 37. 38 "The kingdom of heaven” Is the king dom which has Its origin In heaven, and which Jesus as king came to es tablish on earth; In which the laws of heaven are obeyed on earth, so that earth becomes like heaven. The Sower of the Good Seed.—Vs. 24, 37. The man represents the "Son of Man," through whom God was man ifest in the seed sowing He is the source of all good seed. He began in the Garden of Eden, and has been sowing ever since. Every good man, wherever found. Is a child of God. born from above by the Spirit, and made alive with the life of God. The Field Sown —Vs. 24, 38. "The field is the world.” It Is not the church, but the whole world; not Christian lands, but all lands In which the true' church is the good seed. "In his field.” The whole world belongs rightfully to Christ. The sowing of tares Is a usurpation. Christ "came unto his own.” The Good Seed.—Vs. 24, 38. "The good seed are the children of the kingdom,’’ those who in heart belong to the kingdom, are filled with its spirit, and strive to live according to its principles. God's children are good seed, living seed. The principle of life, of Increase Is In them. Dead seeds do not in crease. A dead church does not grow; and this is fortunate, for neither God nor man desires an In crease of that kind of Christians or churches. i nero is a groat variety of good seed adapted to all seasons and all circumstances, producing different kinds of fruit at different times. But remember that Christians are planted as well as sown, planted where God desires thorn to be, "by the streams of water” (Isa. 1:3). The Enemy Sowing Tares Among the Wheat—Vs. 23, 2S, 30. “While men slept," that is, secretly, when the good did not realize what was going on, any more than a sleeping person could. The beginnings of evil are often scarcely discernible. The young often begin courses of evil, as uncon scious of its tendencies and outcome, as If they were sound asleep. "His Enemy."—The wicked one, the devil (vs. 38, 39). He was the original source of evil among men. The story is truly told in Genesis. God is not the author of sin either at first, nor at any time since. Everything God does Is toward making men good. "The tares are the children of the wicked one," tilled with his spirit, liv ing according to his principles, and under his control. They are not a degenerate form of virtue, but as dis tinct ns virtue and vice. They often resemble the good till the fruit be gins to appear, but they are as differ ent as wheat and tares, as thistles and roses. The Wheat and Tares Growing To gether.—Vs. 2C-30. “Let both grow together until the harvest." Because at first it is very difficult to distin guish between the wheat and the tares. The tares are counterfeit wheat. Because when the distinction is clearer, there Is danger lest "while ve gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them," for the roots of the two are interlaced together. It Is absolutely necessary before the grain Is used In the harvest, “to avoid the mingling of the kernels of the darnel and the wheat lest the bread be poisoned. The Harvest. The Fate of the Tares.—Vs. 30, 39-42. “Let both grow together until the harvest, which takes place at “the end of the world" (v. 39), or age. “Say to the reapers . . . the an gels" (v. 39), (Matt. 1G:27; 24:31; 2 Thes. 1:7); any beings or powers which accomplish tills work. “To burn them." So as to destroy their power of evil, and to keep them from spreading. “They shall gather out of his kingdom all things that of fend" (v. 41), that cause others to sturnble in the path of righteousness. The Harvest. The Blessedness of the Righteous.—Vs. 30, 43. “Then, when separated from evil, “shall the righteous shine forth ns the sun." Here are found hope and cheer amid times of opposition and the flourish ing ot evil. Make the evil help the good Christians themselves are educated and disciplined by contact with the tares They would not be nearly so good If shut off In a community by themselves Tares would still come In. If the wheat does not seek to change the tares into wheat, the wheat will degenerate into tares. This Is always so when good people would fence themselves in from all contact with the world, whether by rrion asterles and convents, or by exelu slveness of churches, or neglect ol missionary work. As Professor lluwne says: "Character cannot be developed regardless of activities of Ufa." EQUIPMENT FOR THE KITCHEN Really Is Most Important Pa't of the House, When All Things Are Considered. It Is a mistake to economize too much In the equipment of the kitch en. the room which really furnishes the motive power of the home. Kitchen utensils are of the first Im portance. The cook cannot do her work well without proper tools and proper environment. A kitchen outfit costs comparative ly little. New oilcloth for the floor, table and sink-stand, are cheap, and add immeasurably to the comfort of the worker. An attractive kitchen be -peaks the good housekeeper, and is more apt to bo kept In attractive or der. Neat tin or wooden boxes, or large glass jars, with labels, are a delight ful acquisition to the kitchen closets, and much more pleasant to handle than leaky paper bags. Colored paper with pinked edges, for the shelves, or a coat of white paint covered with one of white en amel. and the shelves left hare of oth er covering, will work wonders for the general effect of the kitchen, and a growing plant or two gives an air of luxury which surprises those who have never tried it. After an umbrella has been In use for a short time, put a drop of oil In the center of the top nbout once a month. This prevents the ribs from rusting. If two thin glasses have stuck one in the other place them In rather warm water and pour cold water in the i*pper glass. The expansion of one and the contraction of the other loosens them. A little soap or black lead rubbed on the hinge of a squeaking door will often remedy matters. Hrown boots can be blackened by rubbing the blacking well Into the shoes with a raw potato and then pol ishing. -Home Chat. A Uteful Remedy. Horns in the kitchen are so frequent that ft I fortunate that the kitchen, or, ratln r, the bin In the cellar, pro vides a quick and easily applied cure for such injuries. When one has been seared by fire immediately cut a whit potato In two, scrape out the Inside, and make !• very fine. Hind tills scraping on the burn and tb« pain will quickly be mitigated. Should the burn be very deep It may !.<> necessary to make a second appli cation. This is an old-fashioned rein 'd y, but one that has proved success ful in many severe burns. Spice Cake.

RUSSELL Pastor Brooklyn Tabernacle Brooklyn N. Y. Respecting two matters there can bo no question: 1. That thc> early church thoroughly believed in a millennial kingdom, hoped for It. prayed for it—"Thy Kingdom come; thy will be done os earth as It is done in Heaven.” 2 It Is equally certain that today the doctrine of the millennium is tabooed as "out of date”—out of harmony with the views of the higher critics and ev olutionists, who are filling practically all the eliuirs in our colleges and the majority of the pulpits of Christendom. The present day concept of tho Church of Christ is that tlod planted It amongst men as leaven in a batch of dough with the Intent that it should propagate Itself until the entire mass would be leavened. The two views are so radically op:,„ sit• • that none should confuse them in their minds. If one is right, the other is wrong. If one is Scriptural, the other is unscriptural. The safe, the proper, the right course is to go back and take up afresh the doctrine of the millennium the doctrine that the faithful of the church now being tried and tested will constitute the glorious Kingdom of God’s dear Son after their change from earthly to spirit condi tions in the "First Resurrection” (i Corinthians, 15:42-44). "Christian people have been fooling themselves long enough!” Yes, it Is as absolutely Irrational to think of con verting the world, ns it is utiBcrlp tural to believe that God ever gave us that impossible commission. The Uni ted States census reports show that there are twice as many heathen to day as there were a century ago. The word heathen carries to many a very wrong impression. Many noble-heart ed Christians have gone as mission aries to the heathen wholly unpre pared for what they inet—Intelligent reasoning ability, etc. They found that the heathen were full of ques tions, logical questions, too, which they as Christians had never thought of, and which they were wholly un prepared to answer. Comparatively few of the missionaries are able to hold their own in argument with in telligent people in India, China and Japan. There is no danger of their converting those people. There is more danger of their losing their own faith in the llible, because of their misapprehension of some of Its teach ings—respecting the mission of the church, tin1 hope of the church and the hope of the world! Missionaries are thus handicapped! Full of commendable zeal they leave I our shores to tell the heathen that their forefathers have gone to eternal torment and tiiat they are going there, too, tinless they accept Christ. It is a rude awakening to be asked where hell is? and why God should have condemned them and their forefathers to such a horrible eternity? and lnjw this could lie true and yet he be a tied of pity, compassion, love? The heathen ask, Why the different de nominations—the different theories of tile terms of salvation—by water, by election, by free grace, by joining the church, etc. The missionary, wholly unable to answer the adult native, gathers children shout him, starts a school and does ail he Is able, per haps, to Justify his presence In a for eign land helping the sick and doing many other acts of kindness which ar« very commendable, whether from a re ligious or humanitarian standpoint. Next let us note that the millennium Itself Is nn absolute necessity for the world, according to the statistics of the world-wise Many college profes -ors and l> l»'s are Inclined to speak glibly of the second coming of Christ being far In the future—"60,000 years yet," say some. Hut evidently these learned gentlemen have not used their educational advantages In connection with such statements. Any school hoy can figure up what the population of the earth would be 1,000 years from now, taking the present population as per the census nt sixteen hundred mil lion and the ratio of Increase as shown by the census reports at x per cent, in ten years. The total would show 3,375,325.000.000 population foi the year 2900 A. I>.—more than 2,000 for each person now living. What would humanity do if the earth were crowded to that extent? Where would the necessary food, fuel and clothing be found? Computing all lhe tillable portion of the earth at twenty-five million square miles or slx teen billion acres would give but one acre for the support of 210 people, or less than five square yards each. At the close of a second such period, 5900 A 1>. at the same rate, there would he ten persons for each square foot of standing room. In other words they would stand 15 deep on ■ach other’s heads. What shall wo think of the wisdom that tells us that h ■ i .lllenniuni is 50,000 years off? I'h. :>u.-'wer is found In Isaiah’s proph ecy (29:14). Are we asked how the millennium if at once introduced would avert the dif ficulties of the first statement, 210 people for each acre of the habitable a h' We re|»!y that the Scriptures !y Intimate that the rapid la .■lease of our race is associated with man's fallen condition; as our Cre ator declared to Mother Kvc after her disobedience: ”1 will greatly multiply thy sorrows and thy conception.’* (Genesis 3:16).
