His wife took in washing (a dollar a day) His daughter sewed shirts, the rude grocer to pay, He didn't worry about it. While his wife beat her tireless rub-a-dub dub On the washboard drum in her old wooden tub, lie sat by the stove and he just let her rub, He didn't worry about it. FORTY •M INUTES LATE, "The most fearful accident that ever happened on a locomotive?" echoed the man was a member of my parish, and I was sitting at his tea table. After a moment's thought he pushed back his chair, for the frugal meal was finished,and looked hard at his wife. It was a curious gaze of his honest eyes, and the lady met his glance with an almost pathetic entreaty: "Do not tell it!" written on her kind face. "She don't like to think of it," he returned, laughing at the same time he shook back the long hair that fell in waves over the left side of his brow, uncovering a blushing scar and revealing that he had been dismembered of an ear. "But I am not so bad a looking fellow, after all," he said. In fact, he was singularly fine looking. "It is one of those memories," his wife interrupted, rising, "that one fears to recall. But, thank God, it will be no more ikely to occur again for the telling of it, ami he may tell it while I put the boy to bed upstairs." It was one of those accidents that nothing cau prevent," resumed the engineer. "No foresight cau guard against the hidden flaw which the best of steel sometimes hides in its own false heart. The best crank or shaft ever forged will sometimes break on a steamer in mid-ocean. So of a connecting rod on a pair of drivers. Now, I think the thing I am going to tell you is the most terrible accident that can happen on ajocomotive, because it is the worst I ever experienced. It wolfed the most havoc and scared me more than any other I ever went through. I cannot get over the dread of it even now, and probably never shall. Still another man might single out another as the worst." My friend still runs, as he did that almost fatal day, the fastest train that speeds between two large cities. At one end of its flight the train is obliged to traverse a long tunnel. Millions of people pass through that tunnel yearly in perfect safety. But if they knew the hairbreadth escapes of the first few years, and especially during its construction, even now they might not always sit so comfortably ; but the best of appliances have somewhat lessened the dangers. "When we were ready to leave the depot at the new general manager of the division came along down the platform with the agent and was introduced to me. I pulled off my greasy cap, and was about to get down, when he said, 'Never mind,' that he was going to run with us. Of course I offered him his choice of seats,as you wouldn't do to your own father; for whoever rides in tBe cab he must take a stand up or the firemen's box, if the fellow is good natured enough to offer it. A big officer, like the manager, was different, however, and I gave him anything. To tell the truth, I was relieved to know his errand was only to ride: for this English gentleman, a kinsman of our big owner, had been turning up lots of good men. He seemed to think we Americans couldn't make fast time, and he forgot that our machines and cars are heavier, our roads not so straight as the English: " 'We are forty minutes late,' he said, as he straddled in front of the fire box and consulted his watch. 'This occurs about every day, my man, more or less, and it's about time the blamed practice was stopped.' " 'Tralllo is heavy in October, sir,' I said, trying to smile my prettiest. " 'Can you drive this machine in on time?' he kind o' growled at me. "I gave him a real Yankee stare back for a moment, and then my blood was up. That was ten years ago, before I had any wife and babies. It is wife, babies, teu years and a ditch or two that takes the dare-devil out of a locomotive engineer. At lirst a man knows no fear, but any of the aforementioned things kind o' tempers him down. lie can't keep his pluck up, at lirst, do what he will. My wife, by the way, was expecting me to come round with the minister to be spliced a week from that very day. " She had sent out some wedding cards—rather showy for humble folks to do. The wedding had to be deferred," and he tried to smile as he referred to that incident, though it was evident that the remembered tragedy was beginning to overshadow his own manly face, as it had his wife's before she left us. "Well, pastor, I just frowned on the Englishman, aud said, "If you'll choose which seat you'll take, and let my tire-man get in some of his work, we'll show you what the Sagamore cau do when she is mad.' " 'I will take the stoker's box,' he said; that's English for fireman,you know. And he climbed up, rolling a cigarette and lighting it with a funny kind of foreign machine in his hand. "I started her easy. We pulled teu cars. We had a run of seventy-four miles, schedule time two hours. I was to run it in one hour and twenty minutes. There were to be three slow ups, and one dead stop at a drawer. 'i hat wotdd ijive.me most of the miles to do in sixty seconds, We often do that for a mile or two. Every, fast train does everv day. But seveutj'-j four such miles are mighty trying on a machine, now I tell you, before you get through; and right on the end you don't know what minute the poor old creature may break her heart on you. I looked the Sagamore over as I took her out of the shop. I always do that with my own eyes, but if 1 had known what we were to try on I'd given those connecting rods more attention. We used to wedge them on the wheels; you have seen the steel keys? Nowadays they are fastened so the men can't wedge them too tight. It is this new way of fastening that causes the ringing noise that you now hear as th£ big drivewheels pass you. Did you never notice? "Well, I soon began to feel of her winds She was not long in making that fireman's ] box too uneasy for my CAPTIVITY OF JUDAH. LESSON XII, SECOND QUARTER, INTERNATIONAL SERIES, JUNE 21. Text of the Lesson, II Kings xxv, 1-12. Commit Verses, 4-G—Golden Text, IIos. vi, 1—Commentary by the Itev. I). M. Stearns. [Compiled from Lesson Helper Quarterly by permission of U.S. Hoffman, publisher, Philadelphia.] 1. "Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came, he and all his host, against Jerusalem, and pitched against it." As we saw in the last lesson Josiah's turning to God and great revival reached but a few comparatively, while the nation as a whole con tinned in sin. "According to the Word of the Lord." 2. "And the city was besieged unto the eleventh year of Zedekiah." Jeremiah had at this time been a prophet forty years, for he began in the thirteenth year of Josiah, after which Josiah continued eighteen years, and the eleventh of Zedekiah was twenty-two years later (Jer. i, 2; II Kings xxii, 1; xxiii, 31, 30; xxiv, 8- 18). The thirty-five years which t4apsed between Josiah's great passover in the eighteenth year of his reign (II Chron. xxxv, 19) and the destruction of the city, is suggestive and perhaps typical of about the same period which elapsed between the greatest of all passovers, when Christ our passover was sacrificed-for us (I Cor. v, 7) and the last destruction of Jerusalem by Tit us. 3. "The famine prevailed in the city, and there was no bread for the people of the land." 4. "And the city was broken up, and all the men of war lied by night; and the king went the way toward the plain." And yet this was the city which God had chosen to put Ilis name there—the city of the Great King, beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth. 5. "And tlie army of the Ciialdees pursued after the king and overtook him in the plains of Jericho, andall his army were scattered from him." This also was made known to the captives at Babylon by the prophet Ezekiel (Ezek. xii, 13, f. c.). Contrast the safety of Ileze-kiali when besieged by the great army of Sennacherib, and the wonderful deliverance God wrought for him in answer to the pras*er of himself and Isaiah (II Chron. xxxii, 20-22; Isa. xxxvii, 30). See also the peace and safety of Elijah when besieged by the Syrians (II Kings vi, 10, 17), and consider what God did for Abijah aud Asa because they relied on him (II Chron. xiii, 18; xiv, 11, 12). 6. "So they took the king and brought him up to the king of Babylon to Riblah; and they gave judgment upon him." At the same place, just twenty-two years before, the king of Egypt had put bands upon his brother Jehoahaz and took him to Egypt, where lie died (II Kings xxiii). 7. "And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and put out the eyes of ledekiah, and bound him with fetters of |brass, and carried him to Babylon." Jeremiah had said, "Thine eyes shall be-fhold the eyes of the king of Babylon, and eneral manage*#"5 fh'U1 thee mouth to mouth, 14i|.and thou slmlt go to Babylon" (Jer. xxxiv, He danced like a toy man.

Th;~^"" left the windows alone, though thljpli biec-i—open, hc loot-lHa'^m^ 11 IVrtf fireman caught on the baggage brake; but Mr. Manager could not let go his clutch on the seat to replace his hat. The hat was all coal dust, anyway, so, it was put into the tooichest. Now we were just flying. I never took my eyes ofi" the iron, but out of the corners of iny eyes I saw how distressed he was. lie undertook to holler something, but I paid no attention. The fireman shoved in the sprinklings fine; he knew exactly how. Firing is half the battle in a big run. Well, we were going so well that I was afterward told the paymaster's car, which we were pulling home, could not keep the dinuer dishes ou the table. No, sir! Twice, going round curves, every dish the boys had was swept on the floor. If we had had dining-cars in those days wouldn't the soup have spilled?" "I should have thought your conductor might have interfered," I suggested. "I expected he would," was the reply. "But a« time went on, and our rate grew simply fearful on the passengers, I knew well enough the conductor had been scolded as well as the rest of us. No; he told me afterward that he simply sat down and said his prayers. But to go on: I saw that we had made up twenty-eight minutes, then thirty, then thirty-three— being only seven minutes behind. But there we liuug. She could not increase her lead, do my best. "I knew then that we should soon begin to lose them,for she was heating. Whether the boxes were lugging on the cars or eu-gine I could not be sure. Then, too, it might have been the curves; at all events we were lugging and losing. We fell oil", I calculated, some live minutes, when we struck the tunnel. It was a heavy rail and a straight track there, and I pulled her clean out for one more spurt, live or die, as we dashed into the steam and darkness of that long hole. In there you can't see anything but signals. The Sagamore answered me for just one plunge. But the next instant—crash! God help me! The whole side of the cab was Hying in splinters. I knew what that meant. I jumped from my seat in front of the fire box. There, under my seat, was the general manager. lie had been mercifully knocked in instead of out, but he was senseless. My drivers held their rod yet, but I knew the strain could not last long without snapping that rod, too, as I could not find the throttle to shut her oft". It was so queer about that throttle. I turned round and round, trying to find it; I kept turning to the left. I thought I had an extra eye just over my ear, and my other two eyes were blind. That new eye showed me a beautiful clear light, but not the throttle. Hound and round that fearful steel hammer, the broken rod, kept crashing and tearing out the shreds of the cab on that side. Then the other one twisted, which threw old Sagamore plump into the granite wall. We were all piled up there, dark as pitch all about, and finally still. Now, the curious thing about it all is that with my new eye over my ear I actually read the time by my watch, and we were only seven minutes late. Yes, sir, we had made up thirty-three minutes in the seventy-four miles, slow ups and stops included, and a minute more would have brought us to the station. I just yelled, 'How's that, old English?' and my new eye seemed to go out in darkness." The. new eye was the result of a fearful gash on the side of the head, from the eifects of which the poor man lingered on the borders of death for weeks. That postponed the wedding. The peculiar effect of that blow on the head the writer cannot explain, but the fact that he read his watch correctly is substantiated the conductor of the train, of whom asked my information. ~ "Were there mauy injured?" I in the pause that followed his conclusion. "Don't ask me—yes. Thank (Sod, I'm alive! Now, Mollie," addressing his wife, who just entered, "I've told that story for the last time, except in my prayers.^f 3). The same Ezekiel, "I will bring him to Babylon, to he laud of the Chaldeaus; yet shall he not e it, though he shall die there" (Ezek. i. 13k.,. See bow these somewhat difficult, tory, prophecies wereliterally fulfilled, and all made perfectly plain in the fulfillment. He saw the king of Babylon; they looked upon each other and spoke to eacli other. He also went to Babylon, but he never saw Babylon, for after seeing the king of Babylon at Riolab, and after being compelled to witness the death of his sons, his eyes were put out. How fearfully sad the consequences of unbelief! but what is all present physical sulTering when compared with the endless torment of Rev. xiv, 9-11? 8. "Nebuzar-adan, captain of the guard, a servant of the king of Babylon." The literal meaning of the Hebrew phrase here translated "captain of the guard" is "chief of the slaughtermen or executioners" (see the margin of Gen. xxxvii, 36). .9. "And he burnt the house of the Lord, and the King's house, andall the houses of Jerusalem, and every great man's house burnt lie with fire." The people could now truly say, "O God, the lieathe;n are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps" (Ps. lxxix, i). "Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised Thee, is burned up with fire, and all our pleasant things are laid waste" (Isa. lxiv, 11). This magnificent building, costing hundreds of millions of dollars, and which stood less than thirty-four years in its original splendor (I Kings xiv, 25, 26), is now completely destroyed and all the city burned with fire; and sin did it all. 10. "Aud all the army of the Chaldees that were with the captain of the guard, brake down the walls of Jerusalem round about." And thus they continued until the return of Nehemiali, many years after the return of the 50,000 under Zerubbabel (Nell, i, 3), and amid the greatest opposition and hatred was the wall rebuilt (Nell, iv, vi). . 11. "Now the rest of the people that were left iu the city did Nebuzar-adan, the captain of the guard, carry away." Some were slain (vs. 18-21); at three different times 4,f500 were carried captive (Jer. lii, 2S-30), while some were left in the land. Some were carried captive for their good, that He might bring them again, and build them and plant them in their own land, and give tlieni a heart to know Him; while others who were disobedient were taken to be consumed and destroyed because of their sins (read Jer. xxiv). The sam event or series of events may happen to both the righteous and the wicked; to the one it means blessing, to the other cursing. The same glad tidings of salvation preached to a congregation may mean life to some and death to others (II Cor. ii, 15,1«). , , , „ 12. "But the captain of .the guard left of the poor of the land to be vine dressers and husbandmen." To the poor of the people, who had nothing in the land, he gave vineyards and fields (Jer. xxxix, 10). Gedaliah was made governor over these, and Jeremiah chose to dwell with him among the people that were left in the land (Jer. xl, 4-6). Ged- &Huh was slaiu by Islimasl# and ho iu turn was defeated by Johnnau, who ere long took all the remnant of the pwple men, women and children and kings' daughters and Jeremiah aud Baruch.and want down Thus was the land desolate "To fulfill the word of the Lord by themouthof Jeremiah" (II Chron. xxxvi, 21).

Give the fulle>t detail • in the case of a serious accident, murder or suicide. Good Words for Girls. Your mother is your best friend. Have mailing to do with girls who snub their parents. Do not expect your brother to be as dainty as a girl. Exercise, aud never try to look as if you were delicate in health. Introduce every new acquaintance to your mother as soon as possible. Don't think it necessary to get married. There is plenty of room for old maids,and they are often happier than wives. Enjoy the pleasures provided for you by your pareuts to the fullest extent. They will like that as a reward better than any other. Most fathers are inclined to over indulge their daughters. Make it impossible for your father to spoil you by fairly returning his devotiou and affection. Never think you can all'ord to be dowdy at home. Cleanliness, hair well dressed, and a smile will make calico look like silks and satins to a father or brother.
