Main at, Thompaontille, Ct Text of tlio Lesson, II Saui. v, 1-18— Memory Verses, 10-13—Golden Text, II Sam. v, lO—Commentary by the l!ev. I>. M. Stearns. 1. "Tlicn came all tho tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron ami spako, saying, Dehulil, we aro thy bono and tliy flesh." Both Ishboshctli and Abner, tho king and the captain of his host, were now dead, and all Israel are united to make the man of God's choico their king. The oneness suggested by one's bone and flesh is first found in Gen. ii, 23, in reforonco to Adam and Eve, and for tho last time in Eph. v, 30, in reference to Christ and the church. It is also found in Gen. xxix, 14; Judg. ix, 2; II Sam. xix, 12, 13; I Chrou. Xi, 1. 2. "The Lord said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain over Israel." They knew this. Then why had they not thought of it before? How many truths wo know, but by somo blindness or hardness of heart fail to' appropriate and enjoy. Our Lord had to say even to those who ought to have known Him best, "Have I been so long timo with you and yet hast thou noli known Mo, Philip?" (John xiv, 9.) See chapter vii, 7, and Ps. lxxviii, 70-72, on David's feeding Israel. Seo Isa. xl, 11; Mic. v, 4; vii, 14, on Christ feeding or ruling His people, and contrast in Ezek. xxxiv tlie Good Shepherd who feeds His flock and the falso shepherds who feed themselves and not the flocks. 3. "King David nindo a league with them in Hebron before the Lord, and they anointed David king over Israel." Thus tho purpose of tho Lord concerning David was in due time performed. Thoro is great comfort for every child of God in Isa. xiv, 24. "Tho Lord of Hosts hath sworn, saying, Suroly as I have thought, so shall it como to pass, and as I have purposed so shall it stand." Whether it be the Lord's purposo concerning the Jow, the gontile, or tho church of God (I Cor. x, 32), tho nations or an individual (Job xxxiv, 29), the counsel of tho Lord stand-eth forever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations, and every^purpose of the Lord shall bo performed (Ps. xxxiii, 11; Jer. li, 29). 4. "David was 30 years old wlion he began to reign, and ho reignod 40 years." It is good that a man should both hopo and quietly wait for tho salvation of tho Lord (Lam. iii, 2G), and David had patiently waited many years. Consider the long years of waiting of Abraham, Joseph, the slavo and prisoner; Moses, the shepherd. See tho Lord Jesus patiently waiting at Nazareth subject to Mary and Joseph till he was 30 years of age (Luko ii, 51; iii, 23), and if ever tempted to become faint and weary consider Him (Heb. xii, 3). 5. "In Hebron he reigned over Judali seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem ho reigned thirty and three years over all Israel and Judah." Tho kingdom over which the Son of David shall rule. must include all Israel. They shall be gathered from all nations and be oae nation in the land upon the mountains of the throne of the Lord, and all nations be gathered into it to the name of the Lord to Jerusalem (Jer. iii, 1,7). 6. "David cannot come in hither," Thus thought and spake tho Jebusites, who formerly inhabited Jerusalem. Jebus was a former name of Jerusalem (I Chron. xi, 4), and tho children of Benjamin, ln-steau of driving out the Jebusites, allowed them to dwell with them in Jerusalem (Judges i, 21). See also Joshua xv, 63. If the Jebusites may represent to us tho old things in us beforo Christ comes in, we see here the danger of in any way tolerating them, lest they get the mastery. 7. "Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion. The same Is tho city of David," This was the southwest hill of Jerusalem, the older and higher part of the city. Another hill in the pity wap called Moriah, and on this bill the tempi© was builded (II Cliron. ii^ 2). Here was tlio thrashing floor of Araunah, and here, long before, had Abraham offered up Isaac. 8. 9. "So David dwelt in the fort and called it the city of David." David offered tho chief captaincy to whoever would first smite the Jebusites, and the successful man was his own sister's son, Joab, the son of Zeruiah (I Chron. xi, 6; 2-16). Nothing can stand before a man in whom God is. One such shall chase 1,000, and two put 10,000 to flight (Deut. xxxii, 30). We think of'Caleb, who asked for Hebron, where the giants were, and of David when ho slew Goliath. Although David dwelt Jn this visible fort, lie know of and dwelt in a much stronger one, invisible to men, for ho was wont to sing, "Tho Lord is my rock and my fortress, and my deliverer, My God, my strength, in whoip I will trust" (Ps. xviii, 2). 10. "And David went on and grew great, and the Lord God of Hosts was with him." Tho margin has "going and growing." In I Chron. xi, 9, it is written, "So David waxed greater and greater," or, in the mprgin, "went in going and increasing," Thp R. Y. has in both texts, "David waxed greater spd greater." The reason is that "the Lord was with fiinj.?* It seems to me increasingly clear that the promise. "I am with you," or "I will be with you,'' is about the greatest that God can give us. See Ex. iii, 12; iv, 12; Gen. xxviii, 16; Joshua i, 5; Judg. vi, 16; Jer. i, 8,19; Isa. xli, 10; Math, xxviii, 20, etc. 11, 12. "And David perceived that the Lord had established him king over Israel and that Ho had exalted his kingdom for His people Israel's sake." The growth of David's kingdom and its establishment is typjcrtj pf the kingdom of the son of David, of Vbofi) jit Jis written, "Of the increase of bis goverpfnppt peace there shall be po end, upon the tbfpne of David and upon His kingdom, to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever" (Isa. ix, 7). Hiram, king of Tyre, with his carpenters and masons building a house for David, makes us think of the time when the wealth of all nations shall come unto Israel and serve her (Isa. lx, 8, 5, 11,. 12), when ajl kings shall fall down before her King and all nations serve Him (Ps. lxxii, *1). Tb# same Lor(J who previously estob- Hshed Sainjiel as His prophet (I Sam. ni, 20) now eptobUshes David as His king. The recipe for being psjbablished is found in II Chron. xx, SO, "SetiPYP Iff thp fjord your God; so shall ye be established.." The opposite is seen in Isa. vii, 0. The word • for us is, "Be ye steadfast, unmovable, always* abounding in the work of the Lord" (I Cor. xv, 58).' How can we? Bjjr letting the government of ourselves and all'our affairs bo upon His shoulder and by our believing that He is ever with ui and thus walking before Him sincerely.

She was handling a difficult assignment which by rights should have been given to one of the men reporters, and so it happened that she remained after every one else had gone to dinner, and for some time the walls of the city editor's room had listened to the unsusual sound at such an hour of a bad stub pen scratching over thin brown paper. Finally the monotonous scratching was interrupted by the opening of a door, and Fanning, the police reporter, hastily entered. Miss Irwin paused in her story long enough to look up. "Oh," she said, "it's you, Fanning. Been to dinner already?" "No, ma'am, not yet. I'm looking for Scrauton. Hasn't come back yet, has he?" " Not yet. Anything I can do for yon V' "No, thanks. I just wanted to see him about a story—that little chap that was hurt.- Read about it, didn't you? Scranton's interested. The little chap's dying. I've just come from the house. The doctors all say he'll die tonight, and I wanted to tell Scranton. I am so worried. Pshaw, I'm worried sick. I"—• He paused, ran his fingers through his hair and looked embarrassed. "Come, now, Fanning, tell me all about it," said the thoroughly interested Miss Irwin. "There ain't much to tell. Oh, you mean what I'm worrying about? Well, to put th'e whole thing in a few lines, I'm afrafd bo might not die in time for me to get my story for the morning's paper. Just think of what I'd lose— such a beautiful story." -Miss Irwin looked shocked, and Fanning saw it. His blue eyes took on a resolute expression, but the muscles of bis face did not move, nor did bis red cheeks grow the least bit redder. s He lit a olgarette ^said^dtfeg^dly tonigbW-he might have enough consid-efation for me to arrange it in time. Just my luck to get scooped." And he knocked off some cigarette ashes. Miss Irwin gazed at the boy in astonishment. "Why, yon cruel, prpel fellow," she exclaimed, in a disappointed tone, didn't think you were that port," It was Fanning's turn tq look disappointed. "You seem to think, because J talk as I do, that a police reporter hasn't any feelings at all," he said, in an injured way. "Maybe we've got more than you think. Now, there ain't anybody sorrier than I am for that little boy. Why, his mother and sister think I'm the best friend they've got, because if I hadn't Paid my pay, the bully whq hurt the little chap wouldn't hasre been held at all. I fixed him all right enough, though; made things pretty lively at the police court, didn't I? Well, I guess. "Say, if he would only hurry up and die in time I could write the most ele gant and touching story. You just ought to see him. Everybody takes so much interest in him, and folks send him books and toys and jelly and all sorts of good things to eat. When I saw him this evening, the bed was covered with playthings, but if you'll believe it, he didn't seem to care for 'em at all. The only thing he noticed was a bunch of roses somebody had sent him. He wouldn't part with 'em, jand whei} J saw him. lying back there with the flowerg against bis cheek, I thought how pretty it woul^ be for me to have him die with them in his hand. Say, wouldn't that be piotur-esqne? I won't bother you, though, any longer. If you see Scranton, tell him about it; he'll be interested." The door closed, and Miss Irwin was again alone. She couldn't take up the train of thought she had been pursuing when interrupted, and she still had the pbo$ked fook she assumed at the beginning of Fanning's conversation. "Such a hardened fellow,'1 she xnnt; tered, "and yet at heart I really believe him to be what he says he is." The next morning Miss Irwin scanned the papers, but saw nothing about the boy. The evening papers contained long accounts of his life and death. Miss Irwin felt rather sorry that Fanning, with all his cruel, kind heart, had been scooped. She was sure his account would |i§ye surpassed those she bad read, and she sighed as she thought of the roses. They had not been mentioned at Several days passed. She was anxious to meet the police reporter. Curiosity oansed her to wonder what he. would say. Finally the ohahoe came. She happened to be waiting for a car when Fanning passed. She stopped him. "By the way, Fanning, I saw yon were oheated out of your story about the little boy." ' Yes, I was. Luck's dead against me," " What time did be die?" "Three a m. exactly. Just too late for 999 tQ get in even a line. I was there when be died.'' . ' ' "Poor, dear, little.fallow I 3ow «!id he die?"* "He died on space rates, ma'am. " Miss Irwin thought that she had be-come used to the reporter's peculiar style, but bis reply was tdo much for her. When she regained her odmpostixe, die said: . , : "I n|ean, did he know anybody? Was fie consoions to the last?" "Ob, yes. He just opened his eyes; em again, and he opened 'em again and PB)iled real sweet at his mother and sister and md< and tfce!|f' w4tbenJ!%rjbe jiist died nice, "Say," he touched Miss Irwin on the arm and laughed, "what do you sup pose? His mother thinks so much of me she asked me to pick out the coffin; said she didn't know what would be appropriate. I selected a little beauty. Say, you ought to have seen him in it." Miss Irwin was becoming vastly in teresled in Fanning. He was so differ ent from any one she had ever met before. Then, too, he nuzzled her. His conversation was certainly of a "don't care" style, but somehow she couldn't believe him to be as heartless as he seemed. His story about the death of the little boy had affected her greatly; so much so, in fact, that she went to see the sorrow stricken mother. "Oh," said the mother, between her tears, "you are from The Morning Herald, you say? It is so kind of you to come. My poor little boy thought The Herald was the best paper in town; he often sold it. If all the people on The Herald are so good and kind as you and Mr. Fanning"— "Fanning!" "Yes, do you know him? I don't know what on earth I would have done in all my trouble if it hadn't been for him. He's got the kindest, most generous heart. 'The Lord loveth a cheerful giver,' but then, Mr. Fanning can afford to give, and"— "Fanning afford to give!" ejaculated Miss Irwin. "Why"— "It's a blessed thing to be rich, and to have so much power on a great big paper like The Herald," continued the elder woman. ' Of course, if he had been poorer off than he really is, I wouldn't have let him do what he did." "May I ask what he did?" inquired Miss Irwin. _ "Yes, indeed, and I'm only too glad to tell you about it. I believe in mentioning good deeds. Mr. Fanning's paper took such an interest in my little boy that it printed long columns about him, and then Mr. Fanning had the man who injured my boy put in jail, and then he sent him flowers — beautiful roses, the ones he was buried with—and Mr. Fanning even bought the coffin with his own money. When I told him not to do that, he laughed and said that was nothing—he could afford it." "So," mused the lady reporter, as she walked away, "Fanning has spent all his hard earned savings on the flowers and coffin. He's a dear, good boy."— Omaha Herald. Always Boom For "Isera."

The portraits of prominent men of all shades of politics are numerous and interesting, and the editorial comment on the present situation is luminous. A thorough and authentic study of William McKinley's character and career is contributed to the July REVIEW of REVIEWS by E. V. Smalley, the well-known journalist, whose intimate knowledge of republican party politics and long acquaintance with the public men of Ohio render him peculiarly adapted for such a task. Mr. Smalley was himself born and reared on the "Western Reserve," only forty miles from McKinley's Poland home, and he writes with full personal knowledge of the major's early environment. The article is well illustrated. "Old _ Hampton in New Hampshire" is the subject of a valuable historical and descriptive article by Newton M. Hall in the July number of the NEW ENGLAND MAGAZINE. Old Hampton is one of the most historic places in New Hampshire or in New England. It was an enormous township at first, but its outer borders have been cut up into many separate towns during these two centuries. It has been ar' famous seaside resort in its time, and it F]S a place which the artists love for its maity: picturesque qualities. Whittier spent Much time with his friends at Hampton Falls in his later years, and there atj "Elmfield" he died. Mr. Hall tells tbeij whole story of Hampton with great intelligence and vivacity, and his one of the most attractive of the many ?tipon old New England towns whichibWe appeared in the magazine.

One of the first resolutions which are formed by men and women who are succeeding in life, that is, as measured by the only standard in use nowadays, increasing their possessions far beyond their actual needs, is that they will put safeguards around their children; the hardships which they themselves contended against shall never, if they can help it, be encountered by their offspring. They not only coddle themselves, indulge themselves with unaccustomed luxuries and spare themselves all avoidable physical exertion, but they believe this course to be the right way to live, and that if it is good for them, it is good for their children. They do not understand that character is fohned under the pressure of the compulsory hardships and self "denials of youth, just as they forget that health is not a gift or an accident, but the reward of abstinence and of liard work under natural conditions, perhaps pqntinupt} through several generations.—;Frederiok Tudor.
