Instead of going down town after breakfast the other morning Mr. Bowser slipped up stairs, and when he came down again, be had on his old clothes. Some changes had been made in the house by which we had gained a new bedroom, aud it at once occurred to me that Mr. Bowser and bis old clothes and that bedroom were in some way connected. "You—you are not going to the office this morning?" 1 queried. "No, ma'am." "You are not going to make garden?" "Hardly. I propose to finish up that bedroom." "How?" "Well, I shall paper the walls to begin with." "Mr. Bowser, I wish you wouldn't. I telephoned for a paperhanger yesterday, and he will be here to-morrow." "Aud I stopped last evening and told him not to come up. I propose to have that job done in style." "But you can't hang paper." "Oh, I can't? Prepare yourself for a surprise party. Mrs. Bowser, I don't propose to have no wild-eyed wall-paper artist around here for ten days to accomplish what I can accomplish in one." "Mr. Bowser, I solemnly warn you not to attempt it. You will only make a failure of it and then blame me." "There will be neither failure nor blame about it. I'll show you the paper." He had hidden it in the barn. When he brought it out and displayed it I felt like crying. It was dark, cheap paper of a pattern several years old, and I was prepared for the announcement that it was a job lot which he had secured at five cents a roll. "Mr. Bowser, that room ought to have gilt paper." "Had I rushed off as you do, Mrs. Bowser, I should have got gilt. Do you know what the most eminent chemists of the day declare? They say that gilt paper in a bedroom shortens life by many years." "And this stuff will probably prolong it?" "Very likely." "Wellf it ought to! Anyone who could select such paper ought to live five hundred years and be ashamed of himself every day!" "Mrs. Bowser, if you happen to have outrageous taste in these matters I am not to blame. I don't propose to have my home turned into a museum just because you have no idea of harmony. Wait until the room is done and then if you dou't agree with me that it is the prettiest bedroom you ever stepped into I'll buy you a new spring hat. He went ahead, of course, and I left him alone for a couple of hours. When I went up he had two strips on and was standing back to survey them. Two more strips, which had been pasted and stuck on and then pulled off again, lay on the floor. "The corner of the room is not exactly plumb, you know," he said. "These bricklayers and carpenters never get a corner within two inches of true." "No,I suppose not. I have read that all paperbangers make the'same discovery. What's this paper doing on the floor?" "Oh, I got enough so that I could experiment a little. There is no great rush you know. It isn't a case of life and death and I propose to develop some artistic ideas a<» I go along." , "Well, you have made a good start at it. That second strip is on wrong side up." "What J" "Ldok for yourself. Here is the vine mM and hen* the leaves. The leaves 6n one strip are at the top and on the o^her at the bottom." a "Not much ! Your eyes are out of true, and one of them sees higher thjan the other. If you will now be so kind as to disappear I will work out sonie new ideas." ; An hour later there was a crash upstairs which awoke the baby, frightened; the cat into falling off the window-sill,am!( paused tbe cook to fly into the sittiug-rdoiji and call out that a "sinclone" had struck the house and brought down every clj|pney. I hurried upstairs to Mr. Bowser.^|Hfe sat in a chair trying to smile and loofeJtfncon-cerned, but one of the steps of the ladder was goue and I knew that lie come dovf'n like a lbad of stone. ' "Did you call?" I asked. S %- f'Me? Oh, no. I am studying |on an idea." | There was paste on his hair and5j)ieces of wall paper sticking to his back^but I withdrew without further remark. When he came down at noon I was in hopes he had abandoned the work. It was efideni he had a lame back, and he dragged one leg as he walked,and I thought it,^tting opportunity to say: : "I wouldn't bother any more with that room if I were you. I presume y^u are wanted at the office." T "Do you? The office is locked^t|jg|^nd I have t h e key in my p o c k e t . " v ) : "But why not get a paperhanger?" g; "Because I am going to do it myself. I find that I am a little short of paper, and I guess I'll telephone for morei" | He gave an order for four doubW rolls and after dinner went back to his hfoors, locking the door so that I could' fi|»t see his work. About mid-afternoon, however, as I listened at the door, I hearS him growling: sf; "Hang that carpenter! He didn|i get this wall within two feet of straight and that last strip has got to come off;!® Just before supper he came dow'ji and telephoned for two more rolls of ||aper and forty feet more of border, he looked so pale-faced and stoop-shou||ered and done out that I hadn't the heart^,6ay anything about the room.N He fell®ieep in his chair while reading the pap-* every few moments uttered a groi sigh. He was paste from head and back again, and could hardly stairs from the lameness of his Next morning, as he seemed' und whether to go to the office or U| I asked if I should telephone;; paperhanger. That decided liiiii replied: "I wouldn't be as jealous ®|nd are, Mrs. Bowser, for all thej the world! You are-.shaki forfear-fr of work." It was four o'clock in the afternoon before he would allow me to enter the room, aud then he announced its completion. "Just give me a fair and honest opinion of it without reference to relationship," he said, as he stood in the center of the room and looked around. If lie had been armed with a knife to cut my throat I should have been compelled to laugh. Seven of tbe strips were wrong Four or five of thein were on He had lapped the paper on to and window casings, and his border was up aud down like the waves of the sea. "Have you escaped from Kalamazoo?" he demanded, as I laughed until I had to sit down on the floor. "Mr. Bowser, I have a request to make of you—perhaps a dying request. Let me bring in some of the neighbors to see this." "Certainly, and if they don't say it is one of the neatest jobs they ever saw I'll give in." I sent cook out and got three of the nearest ladies, and when they entered :the menagerie Mr. Bowser retired to dress himself. He wouldn't come out until they had departed, but he must have heard all that was said. At supper time he came down and quietly said : • "I suppose you want the custody of the child, Mrs. Bowser?" j "What do you mean?" "Why, after encouraging me to spend two days of my time in papering that room, that you might criticise my work, it will be best that we separate. During the evening you had better make out a list of the things you want to reserve." Next day the paperhanger came up and put on the paper. Mr. Bowser bought a pint of liniment and four porous plasters, and there is no happier household in Detroit than that of Bowser.—Detroit Free Press. THE FIERY FURNACE.

Soak a large piece of codfish 24 hours, put it in a wire broiler and brown quickly over a brisk fire, put it on a platter, then break it apart and butter generously; or if cream is liked pour hot cream over it. Cut ham in thin slices and broil quickly in a wire broiler. Butter a baking dish well, break the eggs into it and bake slowly. Put the eggs in the oven; before broiling the ham as eggs should be baked slowly to prevent them from being tough. Cut salt pork in slices in the evening, soak them over night in sweet skim-milk, then fry crisp and it wiUbe equal to fresh pork. Serve with baked potatoes and apple sauce. Chop finely the pieces left of rdast veal and warm in the glavy, left over or In butter and hot water; season ^viU?. salt and pepper and pour it ovef Alices of toasted bread.

'.c-fe; Text of tlie Lesson, Dmi. iii, 13-25—memory Verst's 16-18—<iolden Text, Isa. xliii, IS—Commentary by tlie Rev. O. SI. Stearns. 13. "Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Sliadmch, Meshaeh and Abednego.'' This Gentile king, to whom God gave the kingdoms of this world, and to whom also He gave the wouderful vision of chapter ii, has in the pride of his heart set up an image which he commands all people to worship. Ten times in this chapter it is spoken of as the golden image or the image which he had set up. It is suggestive of another image to be set up in the last days by an enemy of God, which men must either worship or die (Rev. xiii, 15). Daniel's friends rofused to worship the image which Nebuchadnezzar had set up. and therefore they are summoned to appear before the king. 14. "Do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?" This is the question asked of these young men by the man to whom it had been made known that "The God of Heaven had given him his kingdom, power, strength and glory" (chapter ii, 37). Yet his heart is so proud that he refuses to acknowledge the God of Heaven, but will if possible compel the servants of the true God to bow down to his false gods. 15. "If ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace, and who is that God that shall deliver you out of nfy hands?" "Man that is in honor and understandeth not is like the besists that perish" (Ps. xlix, 20). See this man whom God h:us honored, but who understands not, roaring like the lion from the pit against the servants of the Most High God, not knowing that they are under the care of a greater I -ion, even the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Rev. v. 5). 10. "We are not careful to answer thee in this matter." Or, as in the R. V., "We have no need to answer," etc. The same word is translated "have need" in Ezra vi, 9, and these are the only two places in Scripture where the word is used. Young, in-his concordance gives "think necessary'' as the meaning of the word. The path of duty was so clear to these men that there Wfis no need to wait for further light, no need of delay or argument. They knew God and would worship Him only. 17. "If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furuace, and He will deliver us out of thine hand. O king." We may not know if He will deliver us from this or that special trial, but we do know that He will be with us in the trial and that neither man nor devil can harm us. "When thou walkest through the fire, thou -shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee" (Isa. xliii, 2). Perhaps this very promise was whispered to these men by the Holy Spirit. The Lord Jesus teaches us that we are not to fear persecution or imprisonment or even'death, but that our great aim must be faithfulness to him (Math, x, 28; Rev. ii, 10). We may .say with the utmost assurance, "The Lord «hall;deliver me from every evil work and WntOvHis, heavenly king - - - 18. "But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up." Job said, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him," or "Wait for Him'' (R. V., Job xiii, 15), for he knew that even though his mortal body might be de stroyed, yet in his resurrection body he would see God (.lob xix. 25-27). The apostles, sustained by the same blessed as surance, feared not the face of man nor the threats of the rulers, but would testify of Jesus and the resurrection, rewly to die for him if need be (Acts iv, 19, 20; v, 29). These friends of Daniel were tempted to worship a golden image, but people are now tempted in this land to worship gol den eagles and silver dollars and whatever will bring power or popularity, and how many professed servants of God are without scruple bowing down to these,- God only knows. Where are the Shadracks, who say without hesitation to the world, the flesh and the devil, "We will not serve thee." Let us remember that "To whom we yield ourselves servants to obey, hisser vants we are whom we obey" (Rom. vi, 16). 19-23. This is the account of the carrying out of the sentence of death against the faithful three. The furnace is heated seven times hotter than usual; the men are bound in their clothes and cast into the furnace; the fury of the beast is satisfied; the devil has done his worst to the servants of God, and a God of Love, aud infinite wisdom, and all power-has suffered it so to be. This is that which perplexed David and Asaph and Jeremiah, and is a stumbling block to multitudes to this day. We need to learn that "Evil doers shall be cut off, but they that wait upon the Lord shall inherit the earth." The wicked shall be brought into desolation as in a moment and utterly consumed with terrors; they shall be pulled out like sheep for the slaughter (Ps. xxxvii, 9; Ixxiii, 19; Jer. xii, 1-3). When God permits the devil to touch His dear people it is only that He may be glorified and greater blessing brought in due time to these tried ones. He desires us even here in this life to be conformed to the image of His Son, and by all events of our daily life to be fitted to reign with Him over this earth in due time. Thus God maketh even the wrath of man to praise Hihii (Ps. Ixxvi, 10). •'24. "Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered 'and said unto the king, True, O king." •His astonishment could hardly have been greater hail he found himself in the torment where the rich man found himself immediately after death (Luke xvi, 28). He can hardly believe his eyes, for he had vainly supposed that no god could deliver out of his hands (verse 15). When men rage against God, He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh (Ps. ii, 4; xxxvii, 13). The counsel of the ungodly shall come to nought, but the counsel of the Lord shall stand and He will do all His pleasure (Isa. viii, 9, 10; xiv, 34). 25. "He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; aud the form of the fourth is like the Sou of God." Upon their bodies the fire luul no power, nor was a hair of their heads singed, because they trusted in (tod (verses 27, 28). The only effect of- .the lire upon them was to burn their bonds afiil set them free to walk with the Sou of God. This is the effect that all trials should have upon us; they should free us from the bondage and entanglements of earth's allurements and make us more free to walk with Jesus. As these men came out of the furnace on tjie other Side of death- and judgment, the sentence having been fully.'executed, upon theni, so every oe.lieyer.in .Jesus may be said to have suffered the extreme penalty of the law in ;the person of Christ, his substitute, and to be now on the other side of death and iiulgnii'iit as far as the penalty of the law tone, .,'d. See Johq v, _24; Koni. vi. 6-11 11 Cor- v. 15 v It is said that in all the forests of the earth there are no two leaves exactly,the 8,ttne. It is also said that amid all people of the earth there are no two faces precisely alike. Pretty soon some iconoclast Will Come along and declare that there are no peas alike, and thus break up a simile that has done service since language first came into use.
