Jet used singly or combined with
pearls makes up some of the most
striking combs und headdresses, either

A Jet comb noticed recently was set
with two rows of pearls, the upper row
two sizes larger than the lower. The

thut the comb reached almost from ear

rings. Accompanying this headdress Is
n pair of Jet bracelets, one enclrcllnc
the arm at the wrist und the other

a string of jet beads. The premature

carried out in bnt.-eiets of pearls com

more striking and really smarter
bracelet than the pearls alone.

the handicap of the Idolatry and Im
mortality fostered bv the two former

the Inlluetice of his mother who lajd

15:1.1). In order to carry out Ills re
formatory measures I. had ro wrest
authority from her by deposing her.
Asa did that which win good ami right
In the eyes of the l.ord (v. 2).
1. Cleared the laud of Idolatrous
emblems and Images (vv. ll, o). (1)
Strange altars. These were the allars
devoted to other gods. a') High
places. These were places where un
lawful sacrifices were offered. (.'!)

II. Asa's Defensive Preparations
(vv. O S),
1. Built fortified cities (v. fi). The
cities are not named, but the meaning,
doubtless, is that It was a general sys
tem of defense which involved the
cities at strategic points.
2. He erected walls about the
cities (v. 7). These were usually of
stone. I'poti the walls were observa
tion towers from which the position
and movements of the enemy could be
seen, and from which defensive war
fare could be waged.
3. Made gates and barred them
(v. "). The reason h assigns for
these defensive preparations wns that
they had sought the Lord Cod. Those
who really trust Cod will make every
effort to provide defense.
4. Had an army of spearmen (v. 8).
These spearmen were also protected
with large shields. The army was
made up of 4SO.kh1 brave men. They
were prepared to wage an offensive

first made a disposition of his
means of defense. This was wisdom
on his part. Intelligent faith moves
the possessor to do first that which
Is within bis power.
2. Asa's prayer (vv. 11, 12). He
cried unto the Lord. He sought the
source of national power. In thl
prayer note (1) his conscious helpless
ness. As he faced the Kgyptlnn army
two to one against him. he wns clearly
conscious of bis Impotency. The first
requisite In obtaining help from Cod
is conscious weakness. The Christian
conquers not by self-reliance, but by
selt-dlstrust and faith In God. (2) Ap
peals to Cod for help. He knew that
though- they were helpless before the
mighty enemy, with God's help they
could win the victory. One ninn with
