I I Forbidden by the Holy Spirit to
Preach the Word vt W
Wa nave hero a lesson on divine
guidance Tlio Inclination of Paul
and bis companions was to tarry In
the province of Asia preaching tho
Word but contrary to their Inclination
they wero hurried along They might
have reasoned What difference would
It make aa to where wo preach Just
so the Gospel Is preached Though
seemingly small the question as to
whether the Gospel should bo
preached among tho people In tho
East or in tho West has determined
the entire history of tho church JIad
they preached among the people In
tho East Christianity would never
have become worldwide 6a the other
hand by laying hold upon the Grecian
Intellect and combining with It the
push and energy of the Ilpmane it
became worldwide In the guidance
of the Spirit wo find Him Just as ac
tive and as faithful In closing doors
as In opening them Tho stops as
well as the steps of a good man are
ordered of the Lord We ought to
as truly recognize Gods hand In tha
shut Ins as well as in tho open
II Called to Macedonia w 0 12
A vision was given to Paul of a man
from Macedonia pleading for help
This was the solution of tho mystery
of closed doors about them Thero is
a negative and a positive side to the
Spirits guidance If wo will note
both we jslmll be able to determine
with a surety the proper course of ac
tion In order to be led aright we
must be sure that we are willing to
be led pray definitely for leading and
then render willing obedience as fast
as the llcht comes As soon as the
divine way was known they rendered
Immediate obedience
III Tho First Convert In Europe
vv 13 15
The missionaries went to Phlllppl
Tho Jewish element In this city was
very Insignificant so much so that
they could not afford n synagogue
therefore the devout people were ac
customed to worship at the river side
To this humble gathering Paul came
and preached to the women gathered
there A certain woman from Thy
atlra believed his message and was
baptized Lydla was a woman of
wealth culture and wide experience
and jet she had need of Chlrst The
steps In Lydlas conversion are worthy
of note
1 Attendance at the place of prayer
r 13 This Is the caso with most
people who aresaved
2 Listened to the preaching of tho
word of God vv 12 14 The Instru
ment used by tlje Holy Spirit In the
conversion of sinners Is the word of
Godr JEslih cpmeth by -hearing jnd
hearing by the word of God Itom
3 Her heart was opened by the
JUrd v J4 Jtegenerallon Is a su
pernatural work When the Gospel
is preachcdthe Spirit of God makes
It living and active opening the sin
ners heart for tho reception of Christ
4 Sho was baptized v 15 It is
natural for thoiono who believes In
Christ to desire to be baptized
6 Her household also believed
v- 35 Thus wo see that hers was
a typical conversion
IV A Spirit of Divination Cast Out
w NW8
As the missionaries went out from
day to day to the place of prayer they
were accosted by a young woman pos
sessed by a spirit of divination Sbo
was owned by a syndicate of men who
derived large gains from her sooth
saying This act of thoTyoman be
came a great annoyance to Paul who
in th9 name of Jesus Christ com
manded the evil spirit to come out
Here is a caso of a spiritual medium
a fortune teller being freed from de
moniacal possession Many men to
day are making money by the degra
dation of womanhood and they resent
all efforts to destroy their infernal
business even jtry to- destroy those
who Interfere with -their business
Here as everywhere Satan blocks the
way as the Gospel of Christ Is car
ried Into new fields but the Lord 1

This samo Mother
Nature may bo a genial
old dame os the poets
are always singing but
the botanist and tho
naturalist and tho woodsman bask in
hoc smiles with their eyes open Ileal
ly In some ways Naturo is as cruel
as the grave as the saying goes She
has no patience with ignorance nnd
Inefficiency She works along tho lino
of tho survival of the attest Let n
Ampetent woodsman go Into tho
wilderness ind she will give him
bountifully of her plenty Let a ten
derfoot in th6 wilderness throw him
self on her mercy nnd ho will perish
Mother Naturo also evidently has n
sense of humor which Is not always
good natured by a Jugful Now
heres this poison Ivy Its a good ex
nmple of her practlcal Joko methods
Nature has created the sumac
Rhus a genus of small trees nnd
shrubs of the natural order of Anacar
dlaceoe Tho species nro numerous
and are found all over the world ex
cept in tho coldest regions and
11a Tho sumac is a useful sort or
thing VnrlouB species furnish dyes
tanning material edible seeds varnish
oil for candles medicines ana condi
As n matter of fact all the species
of sumac tho world over oro useful
except three And these three make
a lot of trouble The three are the
poison Ivy Rhus radlcnns and nol
son sumac Rhus vernlx of North
America and a Japanese sumac Rhus
And how is anyono to know that this
particular kind of Ivy nnd this partic
ular kind of sumac are poisonous
Hints where Mother Natures practical-Joke
humor comes In Also It is a
good object lesson of the fact that she
has no patience with Ignorance and
Inefficiency For most certainly it Is
ignorance not to know poison ivy and
most certainly it Is Inefficiency to be
come poisoned by It
Incidentally a big dose of poison
Ivy poisoning is no Joke Of course
It frequency happens that tho poison
Ing la not serious Then everyone
Uughs at the Itching one and cays
Well youll know better next time
nut a good many cases are serious
enough to demand a doctor And there
have been cases that ended with tho
death of the poisoned
Many interesting fnctff concerning
poison ivy and poison sumac how to

Tho leaves of poison sumac aro di

Tho avoidance of shrubs growing In
low land with leaves of this general
character Is n safe rule for persons
not well acquainted with poison sumac
Poison sumac Is often confused with
elder certain kinds of ash nnd various
other shrubs and trees bearing some
what similar foliage also with dog
wood to which It bears no resem
blance Its loose drooping clusters of
flowers followed bv smooth Ivory-
white fruits are readily distinguished
from the densely covered upright ter
minal spikes of the harmlpss sumacs
Other differences nro readily notice
able such as the wing like growth
along the margins of the leaf stalks
of the dwarf sumac and the hnlry cov
erings of the leafstalks and twigs of
the stnghorn sumac
After exposure to poison Ivy meas
ures to Insure tho removal ot the poi
son oro of primary Importance At
first the poison Is on the surface of
the skin nnd may bo removed by wash
ing with ordinary kitchen or lnundry
soap nnd hot water Care should bo
taken however not to spread the poi
son by careless wnshlng
Mild cases of Ivy poisoning general
ly subside within a few days and do
not cause alarm Fatal cpses how
ever have occurred nnd whero the In
flammation Is extensive or severe a
physician should be consulted In tho
early stages of Ivy poisoning remedies
having a fatty or oily bnse such as
ointments should not be used as the
grease or oil tends to dissolve nnd
sprend the poison say specialists of
the Deportment of Agriculture In
stead they advlso slmplo remedies
such as local application of solutions
of cooking soda or of Epsom salt ono
or two teaspoonfuls to n cupful of
water Fluid extract of grlndella di
luted with four to eight parts of water
Is often used with success
Solutions of this kind may be ap
plied with light bandages or clean
cloths which should be kept moist and
should be changed nnd discarded fre
quently to avoid Infection During tho
night or when moist applications can
not bo used the poisoned surfaces
should bo carefully cleaned nnd dried
nnd left exposed to the air rather
than tightly bandaged In the later
stage after the toxic material has ex
hausted Itself zlnc oxld ointment and
similar mild antiseptics nnd astringent
applications hasten healing
