Samuel xviii, 5-16. The victory over Goliath seemed to lay everything that was de sirable at David's feet. It made him the hero of the hour. It secured him the fervent friendship of Jonathan. But soon the jeaious> of Saul made his good fortune appear like a calamity. It was through the jealousy of the king, however, that God was training David to b.e the ruler of Israel. The disci pline, though hard, developed the man- j hood that was necessary to make him an ideal king. After his anointing by Samuel, David was summoned to court to charm away "the evil spirits that troubled Saul" by means of his talent with the harp. But the narrative studied last Sunday in troduces David as a stranger to the king. David's visits at court may have been few, and Saul's failure to. recog nize him at Socoh may have been due to his older and altered appearance, or to the fact that Saul had seen him only during his fits of madness. David's appointment as armor-bearer was doubtless subsequent to his victory over Goliath. Here begins the close comradship be tween David and Jonathan, which is one of the famous friendships of his tory. His great courage and faith, manifested at Israel's time of need, won j the heart of Jonathan, who was him self a hero. The slayer of Goliath had been prom ised the hand of the king's daughter. But he won instead the hearts of the king's son and all the people. The adulation heaped upon him by count less admirers and the honors bestowed by the king were a severer test of his sturdy character than was the conflict with Goliath. The immoderate flat tery of the women waa the beginning of David's trouble. "Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you." His excess of popularity proved his un doing. He would have been far better off without It, for it aroused the ting's jealousy. Anger, jealousy and suspicion rank led in .the king's heart because of the praises of the popular hero. Hereto fore David had been but a shepherd youth In Saul's gyes. : Now 'he views him as a rival. He remembers, with a guilty uneasiness, the keen .words of Samuel warning' him that Jehovah woud "rend the kingdom from him and jive it to a neighbor who was better ••Scatter Sunshine All Along the Way.

The very thought brings on his old-time madness, and when David, as before, tries to comfort and calm him with his music, the jealous king in a burst of passion hurls his javelin at him. David twice escapes, which led Saul to fear that David had a "charmed life," and then he began to fear him*. When fear is added to jeal ous suspicion, treachery soon follows. Fearing to^oppose David publicly, Saul secretly plots to cause his death. His hope that.he may die in battle is not realized, so he urges him to special deeds of boldness in order to win in marriage the king's daughter, Mlchal. The plot is a mean one, but David passes the ordeal unscathed and wins the prize, becoming the king's son-in law. Constantly baffled in his jealous plans, Saul nurses his wrath and bides his time. TACT IN DEALING WITH MEN. The Christian Endeavor topic for August 16 is found in I. Corinthians ix, 16-23... rr lt, is another lesson from Paul: "How to use tact in dealing with men." Paul exemplifies in. a large meas ure the necessity and the successful ness of tact in dealing with men from a feligious standpoint. He was a great soul, winner and most success ful in developing Christian character. And one .of the secrets of his success with all nationalities and classes of people was his tactfulness. "Unto the Jews," he says, "I became as a Jew that I might-gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them under the law; to them that are without law, as without law; • * * to the weak became I. as weak, that I might gain the weak; I am made all things to all mea, that-I might by all means save some." Paul did not, of course, in any ig noble sense become all things to all men. He was not •or.c thing to a Jew •and something that was inconsistent with that to a ftoman. He studied the ■ dispositions of all classes and adapted himself to their peculiarities and their wants - that he might win them to Christ. He talked to men in a -language* that they could under stand and presented Christ from a viewpoint that they could compre hend, and thus only can any one be successful in dealing with men in their.relation to. ; God in Jesus Christ. To be able to adapt himself to the peculiar dispositions of "men required thought and study on the part of the apostle. A Jew had to be dealt with in one. way and a Gentile in another, and to deal with each in the proper way. required .a .certain kind of knowl- *HE ST.

The acquirement of such skill requires time ajtui labor, but it should be cheerfully given. ENDURE HARDNESS AS A GOOD SOLDIER. The Ep worth league topic' for August 16 is found In L Timothy.ii., 3-4. Paul had become well acquainted with soldiers and military life. From the time he was rescued from the Jew ish mob in the temple at Jerusalem by the Roman commander of the garrison until the time of the writing of ttfis his last letter his companions night and day had been Roman soldiers. In Caesarea he had been for two years handcuffed to one of them. On his voyage to Rome, in the shipwreck aad after the journey he was kept a pris oner under close guard. His residence in Rome was part of the time in the camp of the Pretorian jruard, and when he was allowed to live in his own hired house he was still, in all probability, chained to a soldier of that guard. In these trials Paul had become very familiar with the customs and manners of that class of men. Their vices and good qualities were known to him. He had largely entered into their experi ences and modes of thought and feel ing. It was a natural result that his speech and writings should be colored by this life. His own privations and sufferings would be looked at by him as a kind of military necessity in the service of his sovereign Jesus. He was prisoner of Christ. He endured all things for the sake of Jesus, who had enrolled him as a soldier. He was in active service and must take his share in the sufferings and the hardship common to all soldiers In such service. * - This view of Christian life has ever been of great influence and of much value in shaping character. Difficitt ties and trials come to nearly every one. Very few have a course shel tered from care and temptations. Ad verse circumstances must be met. The way in which they" are treated very largely determines the individual char acter and destiny. Many sensitive natures, like Timothy, shrink from the rude shocks and are inclined, as per haps he was, to avoid as much as possible the disagreeable things. To all such this warning exhortation of the aged apostle rings out. like ;' a bugle call: "Suffer hardship with me, as a [ good soldier of Christ Jesus!" ;. ,f* ' j USING TACT. —£? £■■'■ ' .

He who rejects the Apostles' Creed substitutes a creed of his own. A de vout, rational man cannot approach the Scriptures without asking the question, "What is there taught?" The answer is his own personal creed, later expressed in words. A creed is as inevitable to an honest minded stu dent of God's Word as an impression is to sensitive photographic plate. Do not be afraid of creeds, but be sure that your beliefs are Scriptural. jAfter the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended upon each of the apostles, they separated to ful fill the command given by the Lord to go and preach Christ to every nation. They probably all used the yerse, Matt, xxviii, 19, as a baptismal form ula and also as a rule to guide the future preaching of their disciples, so that they might teach the faith alike to all Avho were invited to believe in Christ. In time they and their succes sors formed a short and clear rule of faith which is called a symbol. It was not written in any book, lest it might fall into the hands of perse cutors, but taught those who believed and kept as a watchword by which to recognize those who taught apostolic faith. In later years additions were made until it assumed the form we now have. NOTABLE DAYS OF THE WEEK. August 16 is the tenth Sunday after Trinity in the church calendar.

There is no French-Canadian song that in this re spect will compare with it, although the melody is very primitive'; and-it has little to interest the musician beyond its great popularity."—Ernst.- ■•■ • v ■■■■■> . It is often sung to a dancing tune, and is even brought into, the fantasies of a concert. It is known in France, where it has nearly the same words, but with this difference, that the French song express es the sorrow of a young girl at the loss of her friend Pierre, while the Canadian lad wastes his regrets upon, the rose that his mistress has rejected. Some years since this song in its Canadian dress was brought out in all the principal thea ters of Paris with immense success On the occasion of the visit of the Prmce of Wales, now King Edward, to America in 1860. a little incident occurred on board the Hero, on the last evening be fore the landing at Quebec, that brought this song into notice upon a much wider field than before. Several prominent Canadians had come on board, and as the evening wore away Mr. (afterwards Sir George) Cartier, a high official in the government, stepped forward and began to sing this song in a clear and melodious voice. The chorus was easily picked up by the listeners;, and after once hearing it a few voices joined in; at first in subdued and gentle murmur, but at each return more clear and strong, until at the end the whole party were in full accord -and singing with enthusiasm the oft-repeated declaration: . : -. "II y a longtemps que je faime, Jamais je ne roublierai.'"— " I loved thee from the. hour we met.

The patriarchs, before they died, solemnly bestowed their bless ings upon their sons. In the Book of Numbers, in the sixth chapter, may be found the words in which the high priest was to bless th« • people of Israel, and later Aaron blessed the people, "lifting hia hand toward them." In like manner the Master, after the resurrection, and before parting from thfe disciples, at Bethany, "lifted up His hands and blessed them." In the >early church, the bishop or presbyter gave his blessing to the people with hia Jiands .extended toward them. Thus the ceremony has grown, until in the church the world over the custom prevails. 426.—The difficulty of welding most metals together in a cold or natural state 1« so great as practically to pre vent Its accomplishment.

From this time onward till the end of the prince's Journey In America, this simple melody became the favorite piece, or was brought in as an accompaniment to other music, at receptions and parties, and. in short, upon all occasions wherever music was in order; and for this reason it is now better known outside of Canada than all the rest of French-Canadian songs put together. The English words are as follows: As by the crystal fount I strayed. On which the dancing moonbeams played, The water seemed so clear and bright, I bathed myself in its delight: I loved thee from the hour we met. And never can that love forget.

A USELESS HABIT. habit was yielded to by one of its victims. Scolding Is easy. It takes neither power of brain nor h.eart to scold. It I does not even make any great draft upon the physical being. Any fish wife alive can be a grand success at scolding! Why compete with her? Scolding should be compelled to per ish from the earth. The tongue, the voice, the eye, the face —all should be trained not to scold; yes, and the pen, for of all things a scolding pen is the worst. And the habit once formed with the pen Is apt never to be en- ; tirely. shaken on*. Om of the Tads some other pernicious evidence of lack , of balance and control. Many Europeans make merry over / "the American breakfast," but they are ' easily caught up by the observation ' that they eat late at night, so that in ' the morning the stomach or intestines are still filled with undigested and un asslmilated food. Moreover, they do not fail to pour into the stomach a lot of coffee at breakfast time, and they will also take a late breakfast as one of their five or six meals a day. The stomach should be empty on going to bed. and, if so. the normal system de mands a breakfast of good food soon | after rising.
