LESSON II, FOURTH QUARTER, INTERNATIONAL SERIES, OCT. 11. Text of the Lesson, I Kinjjs ill, 5-15. Memory Verses, 11, 13—Golden Text, Ps. cxi, 10—Commeutary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. 5. "In Giboon the Lord appeared to Sol-onion in a dream by night, and God said, Ask what I shall givo theo." David was now dead, having reigned 40 years, 7 at Hebron and 33 at Jerusalem (I Kings ii, 10, 11). Solomon was strengthened in his kingdom, and the Lord his God was with him and mngniflod him exceedingly. The ark of God was in the tent which David had pitched for it nt Jerusalem, but the tabernacle and altar of burnt offering, etc., wore still at Gibeon (II Chron. i, 1 4). Thither Solomon and many of the people went to offer burnt offerings, token of whole hearted surronder to God to serve Him only. It was in that night that the Lord appeared to him as here recordod. Hear the Lord saying similar words to us in John xiv, 13, 14. 6. "David, my father, walked before thee in tr&th and in righteousness and in uprightness of heart with thee." faolomon begins his request by speaking of God's great mercy or bounty to his father. The mercies of the Lord are a good topic for every morning, for they are new every morning. His compassions fail not. Great is His faithfulness (Lam. iii, 22, 23). Ho is the Father of Mercies (II Cor. i, 3). Solomon speaks of his father's walk boforo the Lord and with the Lord. Liko Abraham, he walked before God (Gen. xvii, 1), and, like Enoch, Noah and Lovi, ho walked with God (Gen. v, 24; vi, 9; Mai. 11, 6). L . 7. "I am but a little child. I know not how to go out or oomo in." Acknowledging bis indebtedness to the Lord God of his father for his position, he confesses his helplessness and ignorance. He is but a child and knows not anything. When Jeremiah long after this was oalled of God to be His prophet, he also said, "Ah, Lord God, I cannot speak, for I amaohild," but the Lord said to him most comforting words, which also He is saying to you and me if only we have ears to hear them (Jer. i, 6-9). His fathor's words, by the Spirit, concerning going out and ooming in (Ps. cxi, 8), should have greatly helped him, for they have helped many. 8. "Thy servant is in the midst of thy people, which thou hast chosen." So also was the Lord in the midst of His people, for He had chosen them that He might dwell in their midst, and thus make them a people different from all other people on the earth and separated from all other people. For that reason the tabernacle was built. See Ex. xxv, 8; xxxiii, 10. The future glory of Israel shall be Jehovah in their midst forevermore (Ezeb. xxxvii, 28; Zeph. iii, 17). The greatest fact in every gathering of God's people now is the presence of the Lord in their midst (Math, xvii, 80), and not the presence of this or that important person. 9. "Give, therefore, thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad." 1P>a, wo^ed tk; iy^H^Ser«ntly ^ /this people; "but" the s stanSS of it is the Same, that he jnay have wisdom to do right before God in the matter of the kingdom and In the midst of this people like the dust of the earth in multitude (I Kings iv, 20; II Chron. i, 9). Great oomfort for each of us in the matter of wisdom is found in Jas. 3, 6, 6. 10. "And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing." It is possible to please God and have the joyous consciousness of it. Our Lord Jesus said, "I do-always those things that please Him" (John viii, 29), and Paul says in I Thess. ii, 4, "Not as pleasing man, but God, who trieth our hearts." The secret of it is in yielding fully to God, that He may work in us that which is well pleasing in His sight (Hab. xiii, 21). 11. "And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing and hast not hsked for thyself long life, neither hast asked riches for thyself." Our Lord Jesus never sought anything merely for Himself. It does me good to quote His words, "I seek not mino own will;" "1 seek not mine own glory" (John v, 30; viii, 50), and to remember that "Even Christ pleased not Himself' (Rom. xv, 3). I have also boon helped by Jeremiah's words to Ba-ruch, his scribe: "Seekost thou great things for thyself? Seek them not," (Jer. xlv, 5). I believe the best and most joyous life is to let God Himself be our portion (Lam. iii, 24) and live to be a channel of blessing to others. "Be content if God thou hast; having Him, thy need is past." 12. "Behold, I have done according to thy words. Lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart." Inasmuch as Israel was as the sand whioh is by the sea in multitude God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding as the sandjhat is on the seashore (I Kings iv, 20, 29), oi wisdom for every case that might possibly come before him. In verses 16 to 28 of this chapter there is an illustration of this wisdom, and the people saw that the wisdom of God was in liii#to do judgment. 13. "And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches and honor." Here is our Lord's "exoeeding abundantly." If we are willing to live ''unto Him" and "for. His pleasure," there wiL be no need to ask anything for oar-selves. "If any man serve Me, him will My Father honor," is always true. If as believers in Christ we would only accept as true our standing in Him and live to honor Him and glorify Him, we would never need to ask anything for ourselves, but would daily find the promise true. "My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus' (Phil, iv, 19). 14. "And if thou wilt walk in My ways, then I will lengthen thy days." Length of days upon the land given them by God was a special promise to Israel in connection with obedience (Ex. xx, 12). Again in Ps. xci, 16, we read concerning him who trusts in God, "With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation." The believer in Christ who has thus become a part of His body rejoices that Christ is his life, and that because Christ lives he shall live also; whether in the mortal body or< absent from the body, or in an immortal body, he is willing to leave wholly to the will of God. 15. "And Solomon awoke, and, behold, it was a dream." But it was iione the less a reality, for God 6poke to His servants in dreams and visions of the night (Job xxxlii, 14, 15). Some think that if God would come to them in a vision or a dream they would believe more readily, and some think that if one rose from the dead they would believe, but it is written that If we bellevo not Moses and the prophets we would not believe even one risen from the dead (Luke xvl, 81). OCTOBER. Let poets rave o'er flowery springtime, Summer skies or winter' snow, But to me the glorious autumn Brings the sweetest joys we know. Crows are calling—ripe fruit falling, Barns and cellars overflow. When the first frosts touch the woodland, And the ripe nuts shower down, Maple leaves by God's hand painted Pink and yellow, scarlet, brown, Floating hither—drifting thither, Gems for ripe October's crown. Blackbirds swarming o'er the wheatfields, Tinging now with emerald green, Marshaling for their near departure For some sunnier southern scene; Bees are humming—pheasan ts drumming, Glorious month of Hallowe'en. Month of richness—month of ripeness Far too swiftly gliding by, Canst thou not delay a moment? Lend us yet thy hazy sky? Spare the flowers—leafy bowers, With November's breath they die.

We usually sat in the garden of the Osteria until late into the night—sometimes tete-a-tete, sometimes in the company of old Captain Amati. By the garden of the Osteria one is not to understand anything like that which the name, used elsewhere, might imply. It was simply a small courtyard about 12 feet square and was paved with slabs of marble. Four high walls inclosed it like a funnel, and from three of these the court was overlooked by windows and balconies which, as a rule, were festooned with grimy washings. But, unless one chose, be need see nothing of this, for above our table—there was space for only one—the branches of a noble vine interlaced to form a thick screen of foliage. Thus one could sit here quite cool and comfortable, and, when the moon came up over the tall chimney tops and its silver lines threaded the dense mass of leaves and tendrils and dallied with the bottle of dark Trentino which stood on the mottled marble before us, this very garden became a little world full of poetry. Then was the place well suited to the tales of the Cavalier Cicogna. In his jokes, anecdotes and stories, the Italy of the robbers and romantic wars, the Italy of the Austrian occupation and of secret conspiracies, the Italy of Garibaldi and Victor Emmanuel, and, not least of all—for Cavalier Cicogna hud beeri one of the most distinguished • impersonators of Doctor Bartolo and Dom Pasquale—the Italy of Rossini and Donizetti. Here the old man told us the story of Signor CampQ£assi^3onceraing which he de-clar^ s^SfeLvjointly, as_W; not the truth. ^The story which hie had told us repeatedly, as was his custom, ran as follows: "Are you familiar with Farli? No. Well, it does not lie on the regular route of tourists, and I am not surprised that you are not acquainted with it. But you know it by name, captain, do you not? And you have no doubt heard of Signor Campobassi—but only casually, eh? I knew him Well. I have sat with him over Refosco as we sit here over this Trentino. He was a very agreeable comrade, and it grieved us all to lose him. The ladies adored him, for he was a slender, finely formed fellow, with the most beautiful eyes in the world and a mustache—as if the Madonna herself had meant him for a tenor. We men liked him because we had in him a true friend, and one who always stood ready to help with his purse or his dagger, and who had no trace of haughtiness about him, although he was the favorite of the public. He was one of those exceptional men who have not an enemy. "But I forgot. Farli is in the vicinity of Rome, at the foot of the Abruzzi mountains, a small but rich and very flourishing town. It was in the fifties that I went thither with a newly formed company. ' 'Farli had a very spacious new theater. We pleased the public, did a thriving business and accordingly were well suited to stay there. But it was our primo tenore, Signore Campobassi, who awakened the most interest. Our impresario smiled contentedly whenever he ohanced to mention him, and said, with a .knowing look, 'That was the best hit I ever made.' I can still remember well to what straits he had been put for a tenor. He refused to lay out much money for one, and tenors, as a rule, are high in their prices. Then one day, as we were sitting in the cafe, Campobassi appeared, inquired for the director and asked him to try his voice. He said he was a peasant's son from the neighborhood of Areggo, but even as a child he had had such an ear for music that he knew by heart all the airs he had ever heard. It was the opinion among his acquaintances that he could sing finely, and so he had thought that he might make his fortune in the opera. Now, he had heard that Signor Mario was looking for a tenor, and so he .had made haste hither to offer himself. "Our impresario was a cunning fox and shook his head gravely at this. 'It would be a great deal of trouble to coach yon,' he said. But Campobassi replied that on this account he would be content with a very small salary. "Signor Mario still shook his head, but he took up his glass, contemplated for awhile the dissolving bits of iotfarid finally drank the remainder of his 'granito' with an air of decision. " 'Well, we will try it,' said he. 'Colleagues, if you have any desire to be present at the rehearsal, follow me.' "We were all curious enough, so we started for the theater in spite of the midday heat There Campobassi sang a couple of airs from the most familiar operas, and the more he sang the more Significantly did Mario wink at us. His fat, round face fairly shone and glowed CROUP QUICKLY CUBED. — Mountain Glen, Ark.: Our children were suffering with croup when we received a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It afforded almost instant relief.—F. A. THORN TON. This celebrated remedy is for sale by Geo. R. Steele, and A. I* ^Strong (SuffieldW* for joy. Nevertheless at the end he said rather coolly, 'You will make us much work, Campobassi, but I will give you a trial.' "As a matter of fact, the trouble he made us was very slight. He had such An extraordinary musical ear that he retained the most difficult passages if they had been sung before him only once c6rrectly. In addition, he had a natural facility for acting; so that he was less awkward than many tenors of long experience. It is true his performances lacked artistic finish, but the crudities in his singing were atoned'for by the stupendous 'material,' a voice which surmounted everything and was yet of the purest and most beautiful quality. Such a tenor had not been heard for many a day in Farli, and people thronged the theater only for the sake of hearing him. Compobassi was soon th« idol of the Farlese. If two men were found quarreling anywhere, one might be sure that Campobassi was the subject of the dispute, and if a maiden, lost in revery, appeared to see nothing and hear nothing, one might stake one's life that she was all the While seeing and hearing Campobassi. "One forenoon, after rehearsal, we were sitting under the arcades of the Piazza dei Signori, drinking our coffee. We had been chatting about everything possible and impossible, and one of us at last turned the conversation tcf the subject of favorite roles. Each one named his own—I, Dr. Bartolo; Pe-drocchi, Rigoletto. Mario said jokingly that his favorite opera was the one in which he had least to do. Campobassi was silent. "At length we pressed him to confess his own preferences, but he shrugged his shoulders and replied, laughing: 'My favorite role? That is probably my own secret.' " 'No secrets among the colleagues,' grumbled Pedrocchi. " 'No secrets?' was Campobassi's answer. 'Well, perhaps I will play you 1 jny favorite role tonight.' 'Oh, the Tr ova tore!' we exclaimed, for we were to bring out the opera on that day lor the first time in Farli. Campobassi shrugged his shoulders again, and we broke off the conversation at thiB point, as our prima donna came toward us under the arcades. ' 'On the evening of the same day the 'Trovatore' was placed on the boards. All that Farli possessed of aristocracy and distinction was present at the theater that night. Not a seat was vacant. The great expectations which were, cherished concerning Oampobassi's performance were not disappointed. Heref be could give himself free rein, and hie voice rang through the house not like tenors—no, like a choir of tenorB. Th^ applause would not cease, and Cam; bassi was called out repeatedly.

Finally Campobiai Hmiling, made a gesture to signify ' he would repeat the 'Stretta.' The stbr: was laid, and it grew suddenly so in the theater that one could have hear the buzzing of a fly. • We all stood there behind the scenes and beheld Campobassi step forward to the footlights, a departure from custom whioh did not strike us oddly, for tenors are allowed many liberties. * 'But what was that? He was saying something in an undertone to the orchestra, and the musicians, who had already begun the opening bars, broke off in their playing. Instead of the notes of the 'Stretta' we heard Campobassi speak—speak words which made the blood stiffen in our veins, which threw such a spell over us that we were unable to stir from the spot long after Campobassi had finished his speech. "I can remember it as vividly as if it bad all happened yesterday. 'Honored patrons and citizens of Farli,' he began —and probably at this point he madt) one of his consummately graceful bows —'I thank you for the affection you have shown for me, the more since this is my farewell appearance. After tonight you will, I fear, hardly care to. hear me again. I beg you will all remain quietly in your seats, for then, upon my honor, not a hair of any one's head shall be molested. Any movement can only lead to misohief, for my men are patrolling the corridors and all the exits are guarded. Nor can help come to you from the direction of the stage, for the enlarged chorus which has tonight sung so valiantly consists, for the most part, of my own people, and they also are well furnished with weapons. I am, honored patrons, the Fra Angelo whose name is certainly well known to you. I, too, am armed, as you see, and these pistols are well loaded. But far be it from me to inflict any injury upon you who have shown me so much consideration— my word for that. At this very moment a member of the ohorus has already taken our honored impresario in charge. That I shall not exact tribute of my colleagues you will naturally infer. On the other hand, honored patrons, I have often provided entertainment for you, and it is on that account justifiable that I should require some recompense from you, more especially since our impresario has paid me an honorarium which my sense of shame will not permit me to name. So have the kindnesg, good people, to deliver your watohes, rings, ohains, purses and the like with all alacrity to those who will now pass from seat to, scat The exits are guarded, as I have remarked, and the more generously and quietly you perform your 'part the quicker will this business be accomplished. In the meantime I/will ask the orchestra to play some favorite airs, which may serve as an agreeable dis-traotion for those who have discharged their obligations.' "In truth, the orchestra did com^ mence to play, and, as we learned later, everything passed off as Fra Angelo had wished. As a matter of faot, all hto threats had been superfluous, for the name of the famous bandit had alone, sufficed to render every one helpless. "Fra Angelo supervised the entii© transaction from the stage, said a t&W words of thanks when it was ended^> then turned toward the flies. passed us he clapped me laughingly Gh the shoulder and said, 'Did I not fell yoti, Cicogna, that I shonld play favorite role tonight?'.;^ ' - "With 4hat he vf " rushed, .terrified: .«yw A laundry polish for shirts, collars and iculfs may be made as follows: Melt together one ounce of white wax and two ounces of spermaceti with a large spoonful of salt.

' When Chief Justice Andrews of the Connecticut supreme court was a fresh-man at Amherst, it was the custom to "smoke out" freshmen. A party of a dozen or more of the fellows would enter the room of an unsuspecting boy, light their pipes and smoke until the victim offered a treat. When they came into Andrews's room they were without their pipes and had no tobacco about them,but with a stern voice one fellow handed Andrews a dollar and ordered him to get out and procure pipes and tobacco for the crowd. Charles went out and soon returned with ninety-nine pipes and one cent's worth of tobacco.
