Natural Archway In Japaik
All along the shores of the Japanese islands the traveler encounters
most picturesque scenery, one of the most attractive regions being the
Bay of Matsushlma, In the southernmost island of Kyushu. A natural
archway at Zaimoku island in that bay is shown In our illustration.

Not many tourists land at Sokotra
Island, in the Arabian sea, but those
who do are well repaid by the many
beautiful and interesting bits of scen

Result of a Queen's Anger

' One of the curiosities of London, both to l6ok at from outside and
ifor Its traditional story, is St. John's church, South square, Westminster.
! According to one tradition there are several variants the extraordinary
'shape of the building, whence it gets Its name, the "Footstool church,"
was due to queen's "good Queen Anne" having lost her temper one day.
rThe architect worried Queen Anne about details of the design. Her maj
iesty, at length losing patience, kicked her footstool over, and replied In
i anger: "Build It like that.". .The ar-chitect fulfilled the royal wishes, and
the church was built as it stands today, with the corners protruding up
wards like the four legs of a capsized footstool.
FIRST PICTURE POST CARDS
In Nuremberg, Germany, they have
been making arrangements to cele
brate the thirtieth anniversary of the
picture post card with a congress and
exposition. Unfortunately for their
plans, however, it has been discover
ed that the flr3t picture post card was
not made in Germany or sent from
Nuremberg, nor was it born in 1882,
as they had supposed. The distinction
of making and mailing the first is now
claimed by Leon Heunardeau, a book
seller of Sille-le-Guil!aurae. near Con
lio, department of Sarthe, Trance. In
1870, during the war with Prussia, he
printed pictures on postal cards he
was sending to clients. M. Uesnar
deau is still alive, and there are many
of his old customers in France who
have the cards he posted them. The
Germans adopted the idea for the
Nuremberg exposition in 1882.
CHANGING THE CAT'S FUR
A remarliablo transformation of a
cat's fur by temperature has been re
ported. A black cat was accidentally
shut in the refrigerating chamber of a
mail steamer in Sydney harbor, Au
stralia, and was uot discovered until
about 32 days later, when the ship
was off Aden. The cat was scarcely
recognizable, the fur having become
long and thick, changing to white on
the back. . Brought out in the intense
heat of the Ked tea,the heavy white
coat rapidly fell out and the normal
coat was restored.

WELL THAT IS BOTTOMLESS
One of the most curious and most
Interesting natural wonders to be
found in Arizona U Montezuma well.
This strange lako is located about the
center of the state in a somewhat
isolated community. All aVout it are
great quantities of malapal rocks, for
thid is a most decidedly volcanic com
munty. The well itself is some 20o
yards across, anil as far aa it has ever
been possible to determine it is bot
tomless. The water In the v.ell is ab
solutely clear and pure. It maintains
a certain level all the time, which is
unaffected by the dryness ..r wetness
of the season. The walls that rlsn
precipitously abovo these clear wa
ters and reflect themselves in them
were at one lime the homes of a pop
ulous community. For this is the very
center of what was once the cliff
dwellers' stronghold in Arizona.
ONLY PERFORMING TURTLES
i ine luriie is ono oi inr biowi-ai ui

sesses little brain. Yet a well-known
American naturalist has succeeded in
training thre of these creatures to
do a number of little tricks. He
places them, one above the other, on
spools, as depicted in the photograph
given above. If a piece of cabbage
or other green stuff is held out in
front of them they will make a com
plete circuit, all moving in unison,
keeping their balance and not tum
bling off. The bigger turtle will also
ring a bell. This it grasps in one
of Its forefeet, jerks it off the ground,
and then gives It a shake. It is quite
amusing to watch the slow, deliberate
manner in which this is done. The
turtles live in their owner's house,
spending their time in the kitchen
hunting down the vermin.
HOLDS PLANE STILL IN AIR
The Tagllche Rundschau of Berlin
snys it learns that a German engineer
ha3 made a remarkable Invention, per
milting an aeroplane to remain sta
tionary in the air at a given point for
an Indefinite period. The form of
aeroplane for which this amazing ac
complishment is claimed Is naid to
differ radically from any heavier than
air machine hitherto constructed.
The military authorities aro fcald to
be enthusiastic over the new Inven
tion, as it opens up incalculable pos
sibilities in observation and the
dropping of explosives.

Its Origin Goes Back Beyond the
Pages of History and Has Record
in Writings of the Earliest
Colombo, Ceylon. Apart from Its
Importance as the chief city of Cey
lon, Colombo, in consequence of its se
lection as port of call on the Aus
tralian route, has a special signifi
cance. To so many English eyes it Is
the first glimpse of tropical luxuri
ance, and, however much a man may
afterward explore Equatorial regions,
it still remains in his recollection aa
essentially typical of the Tropica.
One day early In November I had
my first view of Colombo, and beaeld
the low promontory which Ptolemy
the geographer marked on his map it
the second century A. I), as "Jovls Ex
ternum." I thought on this, by 3rst
day in Colombo, as I stood in the
streets. streets as busy as Chearsitlo
at one o'clock that it mlghi well be
called "The City of the Silent Feet,"
for the fact that nearly everyone goeg
barefoot lessens - enormously tho
amount of noise. The heat and the
extrema humidity at first press hard
upon the stranger, and a baffling en
velope of lassitude seemd trying all
tho while to clog and hamper every
movement of body or of limb.

and some with plantains or ether

black and sometimes fawn or a red
dish brown, and tho wooden yokes
that lay across their necks were
heavily fashioned. A thatch of palm
leaves protected the goods from rain

tramways echoed 1he modernity of
shops and office buildings, but the old
order jostled with the new. A herd of
water buffaloes obstructed the tram
lines; on the steps of the pretentious
general postofflce native letter-writers,
under wide umbrellas, scribbled mis
sives for their clients, and at every
street corner squatted the sellers of
betel, generally women.

LESSON FOR NOVEMBER 10.
WORLD'S TEMPERANCE SUNDAY.
L.F.88ON TKXT-flosoa 7.
QOLDKN TKXT-"Woo unto them that
r!a up early in the morning, that they
may follow strong drink: that tarry lata
into the night, till wine inflame them."
We turn aside today from studying
the life of Christ to consider one of
the things that caused the downfall
of Ephraim. that is the northern king
dom, and also of Israel, 1. e., those
who composed the southern kingdom.
The chief counterfeit of the Holy
Spirit employed by Satan is the in
spiration and the intoxication pro
duced ia the use of liquors, and we
do well to pause and consider the
works of him whom Jesus came to
destroy. (Heb. 2:14). . -
The lesson naturally divides itself
Into two divisions, vv. 1-7 and vv.
8-16. This entire section really be
gins in chapter' six verpe four and
contains the response of Jehovah to
the cry of the remnant of Israel and
of Ephraim in the last days. In the
first half Ave sea the iniquity of
Ephraim and Israel "discovered," I. e.,
revealed, and in the second section
thero is discovered or revealed to us
God's wrath against them for their
I. God declares that it was his de
sire to heal them both. (t. 1). It is
not God's will that any should perish.
But while Jehovah would have
healed them they would not be healed
(cf. Matt. 23:37 and Luke 13:34), and
hence it is that his love serves to re
veal their wickedness. Dr. Torrey
points out eight charges brought
agiinst the common people "Ephraim"
and the court and city "Samaria," for
this evil attacks both alike.
Never Midden From God.
(1) "Falsehood" (v. 1). Nothing is
more common among the evils of in
temperance than falsehood; as we
have suggested It is the Devil's false
imitation of true inspiration. (2) "A
thief comes in." Intemperance steals
not only a man's money but his repu
tation, love for his family, in fact any
and everything a sober man will hold
dear. (3) "They consider not in their
hearts." Like Rip Van Winkle, meu
say "this last doesn't count," forget
ting that It does count and that God
remember all of their wickedness. A
violation of his law will receive pun
ishment in due season. America is
paying the price of a manifold In
crease In taxation. In murder, in im
becility, in divorce and suicide, the
overwhelming portion of which can be
traced to Intemperance. God is re
membering all our wickedness and
verily a troop of robbers are strip
ping us (v. 1).
We ofttimes hide our evil deeds
from man but never from God, and a
man's sins will find him out (Psalm
9: lti). These people made the king
glad (v. 3.) i. e., the king delighted in
this wickedness. Let us not forget
that righteousness exalteth a nation
and sin is a reproach to any people.
(4) "They are all adulterers," (v. 4).
Of course in this connection wo know
there was a remnant of true follow
ers, but the prevailing vileness was
such as to call forth thl3 terrific in
dictment. We need to remember that
the connection between the liquor
traffic and white slavery is so close as
to defy separation.
"The Great Destroyer."
A liquor drinker is almost invaria
bly a scorner. He scorns the power
of liquor over himself, Its effect upon
the nation. "Sum up tho economic
loss of efficiency the cost of crime,
pauperism, and insanity, and we have
an economic burden of more than half
of the wealth produced by this na
tion." (See Congressman H. R. Hob
son's, "The Great Destroyer"). (6)
"They have made ready their heart
like an oven while they lie in wait,"
(vv. 6, 7, referring undoubtedly to the
heat of anger and passion as well as
of lust. (7) "They have devoured
their judges" (v. 7). One has but to
review the pages of history to appre
ciate the overthrow of priest, peasant
nnd potentate alike. (8) "There is
none that calleth upon me" (v. 7).
The turning aside from God was noted
at the outset, here again we see that
tho nesleet and forgctfulnesa of God
is the true source of all of man's gin
ning. II. God intended Israel, and intends
us, to be separate people. The prophet
sets before us the result of this re
fusal upon Ephraim. A cake not turn
ed is a cake half baked, ono half burn
ed. This metaphor has many applica
tions. Our social life, our political life,
our spiritual life is too often one that
is half turned, one-half burned to a
crisp and the other half raw.
Lay emphasis upon the Golden Text
and the general facts of the temper
ance question. Alcohol is injurious to
all kinds of life; there is little, if any,
necessity for its use in medicine. Us
ually It 13 a positive hindrance. Tho
story of "Old Born Drunk" In Beg
bo's "Twice Born Men," can be told
with profit, a man who returned to
Jehovah and found in the power of
the blood of his son healing for his
sickness. Lay strong emphasis upon
pledge signing, for prevention Is
stronger than cure. Also, tinlike the
old Roman), our belly should not be

BABY IN MISERY WITH RASH
Monroe, Wis. "When my baby was
six weeks old there came a rash on
his face which finally spread until It
got nearly all over his body. It form
ed a crust on his head, hair fell out
and the itch was terrible. 'When he
would scratch tho crust, the water
would ooze out in big drops. On face
and body it was in a dry form and
would scale off. Ho was in great mis
ery and at nights I would lie awako
holding his hands so that ho could not
scratch and disfigure himself. I tried
simple remedies at first, then got
medicine, but it did no good.
"Finally a friend suggested Cutlcura
Remedies, eo I sent for a sample to
see what they would do, when to my
surprise after a few applications I
could sco an improvement, and he
would rest better. I bought a box of
Cutlcura Ointment and a cake of Cutl
cura Soap and before I had them half
used my baby waB cured. His head is
now covered with a luxuriant growth
of hair and his complexion is ad
mired by everybody and has no dis

Appointed Day of judgment.
A horse dealer in an English town
had lent a horse to a solicitor, who
killed the animal through bad usage.
The dealer insisted on payment, and
tho lawyer, refusing cash, said he
would give a bill for the amount, but
it must be at a long date. Tho law
yer drew a promissory note, making
it payable on the day of judgment
An action was raised, and the lawyer
asked the sheriff to look at the bill.
Having done so, the sheriff replied:
"This is the day of judgment. I decree
you to pay tomorrow."
