AS Israel fled from Egrpt's land;
Their lava, and what their tribe be

Contained la Deuteronomy.
Then follow Joshua, Judges, Ruth,
Two books of Sanuiel from his
And two of Kings, the record plain
Of many a good and evil reign;
Two books of Chronicles tell o'er
Each monarch's history heard be

Their many battles fought and won.
Historic words our hearts Inspire
Trom Ezra and from Nehemlah;
And Esther shows the ways of God,
Whlle Job receives the chastening
The Psalms lifted up the soul with
And Proverbs teach In homely
'Ecclesfaates next comes on.
And then the Song of Solomon.
Isaiah now, with vision clear,
"Beholds a promised Saviour near,
While Jeremiah lifts on high,
For Israel's race, his humble cry;
And Lamentations paints his grief
That Zion weeps nor finds relief;
Ezeklel, Daniel, each record
The wondrous dealing of the Lord,
Hosea, Joel, Amos, too,
And Obadiah, prophets true.
O'er Israel's faithless nation yearn.
And warn from evil to return;
Then Jonah, MIcah, Nahum show
God's tender love and threatened

That ring through all succeeding

Then Zechariah, Malachl,
And we have passed in close review
STrom ancient Scripture to the new.
And now a Saviour's birth behold,
In Matthew's Gospel sweetly told;

The common parlor match, which

( 1 ) Don't tell long stories, or even
short ones, unless you have an espe
cial gift for it
(2) Remember that talking about
yourself is an indulgence, and, as
such, should be strictly limited.
(3) If another woman tells you of
some sensation or experience of her
own, don't Immediately cap it with'
one of yours. "Swapping tastes" is
of the lowest order of conversation.
I have been in circles where the talk
consisted In each woman's taking
her turn In telling how she thought
or felt about some commonplace sub
ject, such as the digestibility of, shell
fish, or liability to colds.
(4) Never lose consciousness of
the proportion of the talk you are
usurping, and, if you are taking
more than your share, be sure that
the quality matches the quantity.
(5) Discriminate always between
talk for your own pleasure and talk
for your friends. People constantly
tell the stupidest anecdotes because
these have become charged with
some extraneous charm impossible ;

"It certainly is, and it isn't the
Fourth of July, or Washington's
birthday, or Lincoln's; and I couldn't
think why the flag should be up. Why
The teacher thought a minute or
more, but could not remember any
anniversary worthy of notice by a
flag-raising on that special day.
"I don't know, I am sure," she
said at last. "Go and find out, and
then come and tell me."
Phillip hurried away. In a few
minutes he was back, with a bright
and satisfied face. "It's to celebrate
somebody's wedding," he reported. -
"Wedding?" repeated the mysti
fied teacher. ".There isn't any wed

"That's what it says on the card,
anyhow," insisted Philip. "It's some
thing about a wedding."
The teacher pondered a few mo
ments, then she decided that she
would look for herself. What she
saw on the card was as follows:
"This day is the anniversary of the
engagement of the Monitor and the
Merrimac." The Lutheran.
HE GAVE HIS BEST.
A gentleman was walking up the
street carrying in his hand a bunch
of beautiful white water lilies which
he had gathered as he returned from
a pleasant sail on the bay.
"What lovely lilies!" exclaimed an
acquaintance, as she inhaled their
fragrance, and looked longingly at
the bouquet in his hand.
