T'txt of tho IiCBSon, IN. xxxii, l-.ll—Memory Verses, 1-5—Golilou Text, Ps. li, 10—Commentary by the Rev. I). M. Stearns. 1. "Blessed is lio whoso transgression is [iii'.aiven, whose sin i.s coveml." Oh, the happiness of tho one who has hoard tho Lord say, "I, even I, am Ho that blottoth out thy transgressions for initio own sake niul will not rcflnenibor thy sins" (Isa. sliii, £5). A part of His name is'"tho Lord God, merciful and gmcious, forgiv-wig iniquity and transgression and sin" (Kx xxxiv, 5-7). Instead of studying tho story of David's great sin us recorded in tho chapters in Saniuul, following our last lesson, ourattontion is in this lesson called to David's pouitenco and furgivenoss. While God hates sin and cannot look upon it, IIo is ever ready to forgive the true penitent and urges him to como in such words as Isa. i, 18; Jer. iii, 12; Hos. xiv, 1, 2. This Man still receiveth sinners. 2. "Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputetli not iniquity and in whose spirit there is no guile." God was, in Christ, reconciling tho world into Himself, rot imputing their trespasses unto them (II Cor. v, 10). Abraham believed God and it was imputed unto liim for rightr uousness, and ho was called the Friend of God (Jas. ii, 23). This righteousness came not through any good works of Abraham, but wholly of graco (Rom. iv, 3-8). Transgression is a going beyond or doing what wo should not do; sin is a coming short of what we should do, while iniquity is the root of tho matter, but God for Christ's sako puts away the guilt of the whole business, for every true penitent who is without guile—that i.s, who sincerely turns to llim. 3. ''When I kept silence, my bones vvaxeil old through my roaring all tho day long." Unconfossed sin, like a gathering wound, swolls and torments. He that cov-ereth his sins shall not prosper, but whoso eonfosseth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy (Prov. xxviii, 18). When our iniquities separate between us and our God and our sins hide His face from us (Isa. lix, 2), it is indeed dark with our souls, but what a comfort there is in this word, '•If we confess our sins, Ho is faithful and just to forgive Us our sins and to cleanse us from, all unrighteousness (I John i, 9). 4. "For day and night Thy hand was heavy upon mo. My moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Solah." It was the loving hand of a loving God long-in;; for the fellowship of His child who had turnod away from Him. Whatever God does, it is to lead us to Himself, for Ho willeth not tho death of a sinner (II Pot. iii, 9). He docs everything possible to deliver from tho pit and to give life and peaco (Job sxxiii, 23, 24, 2U, 30). The word selali suggests that hero wo pause and meditate. 5. "I acknowledged my sin unto thee and mino iniquity have I not hid. I said I will confoss my transgressions unto the Lord, and thou forgavost the iniquity of my sin. Selali." Spurgeon lias said that confession is tho lanco which relieves the fostering wound. Confession is deeper than merely asking forgiveness; tho latter may bo through fear of consequonces, but the TACT. Hall, graceful tact, that to no fool denies A charm to tame the wild and cheat the wise, And without lying renps the Rain of liesl That courteous ever kills without a blow, And with a yes contrives to act a no, And can compress a volume into "Oh!" That wins by losing and by serving reigns, By silence argues, and by giving gains; That throws its stones, yet saves its window panes; That looks like porcolain when 'tis made of delft, And, pilfering by its very storm of pelf. Tricks all tho world—yes, even tricks itself. - Detroit Free Press. AN ARMY GIR1 1. wronged any one; tlon must be made to thom if possible, but first and always to God and as in His sight, for all sin is against Him. '"Thou forgavest''—what a word to consider! Aro you this moment rojoicing that God for Christ's sako lias forgiven you? (Eph. iv, 32; I John ii, 12). G. "For this shall every ono that is godly pray unto Thee in a time wlion Thou mayest bo found." Every rejoicing forgiven one encourages others tcvcome (Ps. li, 12, 13). Thero is a timo and way to find Him and a time when Ho may not be found. See Isa. Iv, 6; Jer. xxix, 13; Prov. i, 28, 29. In tho city of refugo tho man who otherwise might havo boon put to death was perfectly safe. In Christ thero is no condemnation, for Ho has boen delivered for our offenses and raisod again for our justification, and the sius cannot be found which by His blood havo boen blotted out (Rom. iv, 25; viii, 1). 7. "Uliou art my hiding placo; Thou shalt preserve mo l'rom trouble; Thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selali." See tho three "Thous" in this verse. He is our Refuge, Preserver, Deliverer. It is Himself, not anything nor any ono else, God is our refugo and strength; tho Lord of Hosts is with us (Ps. xlvi, 1, 7). Eejolco in tho Lord; bless the Lord; wait on thy God continually. My soul wait thou only upon God (Ps. xxxiii, 1; xxxiv, 1; lxii, 5; Hos. xii, 6). 8. "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go; I will guide thee with mine eye." Not only are there forgiveness and safoty, rest and peace, for all who tnrn to Him, but also sure guidanco in all tho affairs of life for all who are willing to bo guided. The marginal reading, "I will counsel thee, mine oyo shall bo upon theo," tells us that not only will He direct us, but Ho will watch us to see that we get there. See also the very precious assurances of guidance in Isa. xxx, 21; xlviii, 17; lviii, 11. 9. "Be ye not as the horso or as the mule, which have no understanding, whoso mouth must bo held in with bit and bridle, lost they oomo near unto thee." The R. V. says, "Whose trappings must be bit and bridle to hold them in, else they will not come near unto thee." As to these animals being guided by bit and bridle they are of ton more easily-guided than their masters, but the thought of their coming near only as compelled by the circumstances of bit and bridle is very suggestive of many people who will not come near to God except as compelled by ciroumstances. 10. "Many sorrows shall be to the wicked, but he that trusteth in the Lord morcy shall compass bim about." This reference to tho wicked must be taken in the light of all Scripture, which tells us elsewhere that sometimes the wicked prospered In his way and bringeth wicked devices to pass. They aro not in trouble as other men; their eyes stand out with fatness, they have more than heart could wish(Ps. xxxvii, 7; lxxiii, 5, 7). But-they shall perish, they shall be cutoff. Then, their prosperity ends and thoir sorrows begin amd shall never end. 11. "Be glad in the Lord and rejoice ye righteous, and shout for joy all ye that are upright in heart." No good thing is withheld from them that walk uprightly (J?s. Ixxxiv, 11). He who sparod noc His own Son will with Him freely give us all things (Rom. vlii, 82). It becomes us, therefore, to say that though all elso fail, "Yet-I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in tho God of my salvation" (Hab. iii, 18). The Lord Himself is our unchanging and unfailing portion. There is nothing that Ho cannot and will no$ do for those who trust in As she entered the room at tho general's soirees, smiling, fresh, her lovely shoulders bare, a murmur of admiration went up from the groups of officers crowded into the doorways. She was followed by her mother, a little overdressed, as is usual with women who have always lived in the provinces, who shook her white curls with pride as if to say, "This is my <daughter." Next came the colonel of the One Hundred and Twenty-th '^"pleasant, modest, intent on keep^iig off the trains of the ladies. Scarcely was the girl seated when a platoon of lieutenants and captains in their dress uniforms, with mustaches brown and blond, eyes modest or bold, made an assault upon her list of dances. There in the dazzling light, to the sound of sweet music, she danced, light and yaceful. All were eager to please her. Her desires were commands, her caprices laws. A colonel's daughter 1 Well they knew that when the lists for promotion were made out a careless eulogy from her, as, "Ah! Lieutenant So-and-so; such a charming officer and delightful waltzerl" might decide a career. So she maneuvered there as at the drill with her soft tones. She was just 22 and her life had been all gala days, traveling over France with the garrison, with banners flying and bugles sounding. Her mother began to grow impatient; she wanted her daughter to marry. But between the girl and her admirers a formidable barrier arose upon which was written the inexorable word, "Portionless." And the officers flirted, laughed, danced, but never seemed to think of marriage. To please the colonel's daughter for the sake of present enjoyment was well enough. To carry matters as far as marriage was another song whose air not one of them seemed disposed to learn—at least not one wlip was received with favor. For about a year the girl had l^ad a timid, shrinking admirer whom she openly ridiculed after the fashion of coquettes. Thi3 lover was a large boyish fellow with a red mustache and blue eyes, a native of Lorraine and educated at the St. Maxent school. He had joined the army at the age of 18, had been wounded Ooulmiers and wo*s<a JgSi It is an old saying, but yet true, " That every one to his tirade."

John Him. Rejoice In the Lord alway; him as an inferior beoause he had not been trained at St. Cyr. Of peasant parentage, he was robust and sturdy; little inclined to talk, though well informed. Brilliant on the field, he felt out of his element in a drawing room. He scarcely knew how to dance. The fear of appearing impolite had once induced him to ask the young lady for a dance. But he had so mixed up the figures of the cotillon by his lack of skill that he never attempted it a seoond tima He would more willingly have faced a battery in action than all those mocking smiles. Hidden in a window recess, for hours he watched his adored one waltzing with vivacity and grace. His eyes followed the small head through the whirling throng and caressed the beautiful white shoulders. Sometimes he was bold enough to approach the mother and engage in conversation. This was the extent of his advances. With feelings of bitter envy he saw his comrades hovering around the girl, each trying his best to secure favor. He said to himself: "Some day I shall hear that she is to marry some of these favored ones. Theij all will be over." Jn the desolate silence of his chamber hs gave up to his despair. He tried to reason with himself. How foolish he was to even think of this spoiled child of fortune, suited only to luxurious surroundings. She was not intended for a poor officer. But in spite of himse if his thoughts flew towaTd her. He sata her in his dreams smiling and whirling in the dfujee. She seemed to beckon to him with irritating coquetry. He thought: "Who knows? She might accept toe |" At tho thought his heart beat so fast that he was nearly stifled. At last he could contain himself no longer. His life became unendurable. He went to the major, who had always taken an interest in him, and begged him to sound the colonel on the subject of marriage with his daughter without making a formal proposal. He passed that day on the borders of the Swiss lake in the garden of Versailles watching the carp jump in the sun, and the future looked very dark before him. That evening the major took him iside and said briefly: "I have seen the colonel. He was courtesy itself and here is his answer: ' Your protege has not a cent. My daughter has no dowry. It would be to unite hunger and thirst.' He was right. Forget the young lady. If you feel disappointed, console yourself with studying military tactica " The lieutenant thanked him, but he did not try to console himself. As officers were needed to go to Tonquin he offered his services. The following week he embarked at Brest. And while with a bursting heart he was borne away from France on the heaving waves of a stormy sea, the young girl, happy and thoughtless, danced. in the bright light, careless of all but her joy. « \ * Tww jrears^ad K|lssed awaj^1 The general still gave brilliant fetes at his eleeant home, but the young girl who had formerly turned all heads was seen there no more. The colonel of the One Hundred and Twenty-third had died suddenly just as he was about to receive his stars.

The widow and her daughter exchanged a bitter smile on these occasions as they continued their walk. They 'went into the park to enjoy tho sunshine of a fine autumn which gilded the marble statues and the turning leaves of the great horse chestnuts. They sat down and, listening to the military band, seemed .to see a gleam.of their lost happiness. It seemed to them as if nothing had changed and as if they might hear behind them at any moment the colonel's voice saying: "Good afternoon, ladies. Today the One Hundred and Twenty-fourth is giving the concert. Its music does not equal ours.'' But the shouts of children playing on the grass near by were the only sound they heard. The mother, with a sigh, tried to read the paper through glasses dimmed by tears, while the daughter cast a longing glance toward her former admirers, who scarcely knew her now. She was nearly 25, but her face, refined by sorrow, was more beautiful than ever. She was like a flower refreshed and purified by a storm. She had lost all that had made her so capricious and disquieting. Gravo and sweet, she seemed to be doing penance for her past. One day she saw a new face among the officers who promenaded past, smoking, chatting and laughing. In a moment she was transported to the general's ballroom and she saw again her timid lover motionless in a corner, devouring her with his eyes. '•Mamma, there is the lieutenant!" He saw her, too, for he grew pale anc} with kepi in hand came up to her. Tho widow hastily folded her paper and, pointing to a vacant chair, said with a kindly smile: "Ah, is that you, lieutenant? What a long time since we have met! We are truly glad to sec you. But pardon me; I called you lieutenant, but I see you have a third stripe on your sleeve." Then, blushing, he related how at the end of a six months' campaign he had been promoted to a captaincy after the affair of Nam-Dimh. After that he'had been shut up in Tuyen-Quan with his commander. This terrible siege lasted five weeks and they had to constantly beat back the furious Chinese, whose living waves dashed against the walls of the ruined fortress. He had been wounded the last day in a supreme effort ; then from afar above t ae clamor of the yellow hordes he had heard the bugler of the French sounding a deliverance. Oh, the joy of that moment! He saw the enemy flee, the tricolor appear ; then he sank down without regret His condition appeared so serious that he was sent back decorated with the pross. During the voyage he had rapidly recovered, and on his arrival he found that he had been recommended for prp-motion to the rank of major. The ladies-listened in silenoe. The mother^ with her knowledge of the profession, knew that he was ten years in advance of former comradeip. Th® dan.. officer him scarcely recognizable; his pallor;: gave him a decidedly distinguished air. Was it possible they had ever disdained this brave soldier who, paying for his honors with his blood, had returned to an assured future? ^ He, too, looked critically at the girL Could the serious, reflective \?oman before him be the frivolous, capricious girl he had once known? She was a thousand times more attractive to him in her new guise. She was all he had ever dreamed of and he was filled with a wild delight. Their eyes met, and his were filled with such adoration that the girl's lids drooped in embarrassment When evening came, the women arose, and the officer accompanied them to their home. They met regularly in the park on the days that followed. The mother read the papers and the young people talked. As autumn advanced and the yellow leaves covered the walks it was too chilly to sit, so they promenaded up and down the deserted park, happy in each other's company. December passed in an intimacy daily growing more tender. Still at times the captain seemed to bo nervous and worried. One day, losing his usual self control, he pressed the girl's arm which was passed through his, and the expression of his eyes made her believe that he was about to declare his love. He was silent, however, and fell into a gloomy meditation. His agitation increased as the new year approached. He made frequent trips to Paris and neglected the ladiea They feared they had been deceived as to his intentions, and could not account for his behavior. At 6 o'clock on-the evening of Dec. 81 the widow sat reading the papers which contained a list of the promotions in the army. Suddenly she exclaimed: "Here is his name. He has been promoted!" -» At the same moment hurried footsteps were heard in the 'hall. The door was thrown open and the one so long expected entered the room. He smiled, flushed with pleasure. -He paused before the two women. The widow said, extending her hand: "My dear boy! So this was what worried you so." He replied with loving pride; "Mademoiselle, I have a future now to offer you. I love you. Will you be my wife?" She grew pale at the remembrance of her first refusal; then, thinking of all this brave boy had done to deserve happiness, she went close to him, laid her head on_his shoulder, and with her lips pressed against the rough galloon so valiantly earned she wept for joy-—- From the French For Short Stories. ftlWDER Absolute!/ Pure.

A BIT OF ADVICE TO SUMMER GIRLS AND SUMMER BOYS. Mexico has free and unlimited coinage, and yet the Mexican silver dollar, although larger than ours, is quoted in Ne w York, Paris, London and Berlin at fifty-two cents. It should be said also that in Mexico it is worth but fifty-two cents in gold and that it passes there and elsewhere at its bullion value as measured by the money of commerce. The Buffalo Courier announces a; new cure for alcoholism, which is simply "a bowl of ice-water and a raw potato peeled. By dipping the potato into the ioe-water and sucking it whenever the desire for drink becomes uncontrollable, a j>erfect cure is said to be effected'." The testimony of a prominent citizen who was entirely Cured of the craving fot drink by this treatment is given to encourage others to try it. It^would not be easy to calculate how maijl' gallons of ice cream are sold in Aniljtica during July and August, and as forpie quantity of soda water that is con-sunajd ordinary figures would scarcely exp|ps it.

Is it not worth the experiment, at least, to try the effect of abstinence from ices and all cold drinks with meals or immediately following them?

The Hartford Business College, Connec ticut's representative of the International and American Business Practice associations, is conducted on the best business principles and has the most expensive equipment for the genuine practice by the student of Aptual Business itself. Prof. Morse, the principal, has devoted all of his time, energy, brains and experience in the one direction of preparing and giving to the public a system of real office training, whereby a student can learn by engaging in the transactions themselves and use genuine business forms. Most business colleges employ imaginative schemes to instruct the student the principles of business, but forget that real education lies in real practice, and that students trained simply to make believe business are in the end nothing r"g^p beliAvfl hvisinpBfi men—l In the Hartford Business College every check, note, draft or document of any description is written in by the student and represents bona fide transactions with some student pursuing a like course in some one of the associate colleges located in a distant city. This feature of intercommunication introduces the only practical way in which all those intricate quest;ons of settlement and reconciliation of differences in business are settled. It also establishes a way in which transportation, commission, banking and insurance, never before accurately illustrated, can be carried on to perfection and in perfect harmony with the realities of life. A visit to the departments of practice will convince any one as nothing else can of the intense interest and strict business principles in which the students trade and record their transactions. No rigid discipline is necessary in such a school as this. The pupils love their work, they engage in each new move with great enthusiasm no one has time to think of mischief and there is no opportunity for copying.
