Percy Terrell began to realize the fool ishness of Jus act in sallying forth all by himself. The desert stretched, on every hand until it was lost in the \ast distance. The grassless, treeless hills seemed to heave to and fro tinder the hot sun like billows—q, strange, spectral landscape. The previous morning Percy had starts pd Ottt pn his wheel from The Needles, a town near the California and Arizona line, intending to make the run to Barbazon in tlie uesert, Instead 61 waii,ing~to take passage on the weekly stage. The distance was considerable, but he felt he ought to have no trouble in making it on his safety, He had first fancied crossing the desert on a bicycle, and not all the dissuasions of his friends at The Needles had beeq sufficient to induce him to abandon the idea. He wished now he had paid some heed to what had been told hin£ He had dismounted for a rest and wa-sitting on a gravelly hillock. He un? slung his water bottle and took a short pull at it. The water was warm and disagreeable, and worst of all it was alarmingly low, and he had no knowledge of how soon he might get more. He had missed the only spring in that section, and for all he knew there might not be another on the entire Barbazon route. His prpgress had been slower than he had anticipated. The sand was so deep in places that wheeling was out of the question; BO far the work had been extremely fatiguing instead of being an exhilarating exercise. - " irxvn hft rfimftiifited and again set put by tHe little pocket compass he had been thoughtful enough to take. He would have felt better- if there had been any way to determine the distance yet to be traversed. He hoped he would not be forced to make another night pamp in the desert. As he set the wheels in motion he heard a singular clucking sound. Turning half around in the saddle, he saw three Indians rise from behind a low mound and come running toward him. The sight almost took away Percy's breath. Although he knew at a glance they were Yumas and had been told that the Yumas were peaceably disposed, there was something in their bearing that filled him with fear. He felt even more nervous when he saw two others rise from another mound a short distance ahead and place themselves in a position to intercept him. He cpuld not doubt that they had stolen on him while he rested and were now trying to hem in and capture him. Why they should desire to do this he could not guess, but their actions did not look friendly. The wheeling was fairly good at that point, and Percy sent the bicycle forward at a round gait and hoped he would elude or dash by the two Indians in front. Asvthe bicycle obediently leaped ahead under the strong propulsion he began to feel sure he could do it. He swerved to tho right as he neared the two Indians, and when they rushed in that direction, too, he gave a quick turn and sent the safety spinning away on a new tack. Meanwhile the three in the rear were hurrying up with all their might and yelling in a manner to disconcert the bravest, and the two in front now added their wild cries to the hideous chorus. "Yell away there, you fed scoundrels!" Percy shouted as with a spurt he sped by, beginning to feel he would make an easy escape. - "Yell away there and catch me if you can." He had seen that none of them had firearms, carrying only long lances of hard wood and tipped with iron. But he had boasted too soon. Tlie Yuma nearest lifted his lance and hurled it through the air with marvelous forco and skill. Percy glimpsed it shooting toward him, and with a cry^jf fear bent down to escape it. \ The weapon had iiSt ljMir ifurlbd at him, however. TIio wily Yuma had aimed at the forward spinning wheel of the safety. The blade of the lance passed between the t^ okes and downward into the sand, wuero jt stood imbedded, the shaft between the spokes. One of the spokes had bt en broken and several others bent, and Percy had been pitched headlong over the wheel into the sand. Before he ciouM rise tlie Indian's hands held him in a vie/dike grip. Pleased grins re.si:d on the ugly facea of the Yumas as they w ithered around their captive and glanced from him to the injured bicycle. ^ "What do you want with me?" Percy demanded, r, rug^ling to a sitting posture and making a. show of bravery. '.•Why did j ou. wijeck my safety that fray? I'll have you punished for it." = The Indians ^buoklq^with delight At B his anger. ^ - H "Want to see um iron pony," one of • '^hem, condescended to explain.

If so, they probably had dogged him all the way. His spirit rose. He vowed he would thwart them. He saw that, though some of the spokes were ruined, the wheel was still strong enough to do good service. He got up and stepped nearer, as if to inspect the damaged wheel. A heavy hand fell on his shoulder, and he was drawn rather roughly back. "Injun ride um pony now! Mebbe little white boy git hurt! Savvy?" Percy smiled against his will. Compared with these Yumas he had to confess he was a very "little white boy." All five were broad shouldered giants of fellows, with arms and legs like bronze beams and muscles that stood out in knotted rolls of strength. The Indian who had grasped Percy's shoulder stepped up to the overturned bicycle, drew out the shaft of the lance and swung himself awkwardly into the seat. The safety toppled over with him as soon as he tried to set his moccasined feet on the pedals. A laugh greeted his failure, but a comrade came to his assistance, and the discomfited Yuma tried again. He seemed to find it great fun to sit in the saddle and be wheeled about on the sand, but it was impossible for him to keep his seat and work the wheel without aid. Another and another tried it. with no better success. If the entire performance had not been BO exasperating, Percy might have seen in it much to amuse him. It was really a most laughable exhibition of awkwardness. These Yumas would have had no trouble in mounting and riding the wildest pony that ever bounded across that desert, but here they found their RVill at fault. What looked so easy proved to be entirely beyond them all. (3-runts pf delight pr derision arose at each failure, and when one of the fellows was shot head first into the sand and got up digging it out of his mouth and eyes and making a wry face the yells of his companions rose in an ecstatic chorus. They spent more thali an hour in an endeavor to conquer the "little white boy's" steed, but at the end of that time were forced to give it up as hopeless. "Little iron pony heap buck," one of them explained, ci ossing over to where Percy reclined on the sand and pointing to the unmanageable safety. "White boy show Injun how to ride um." This was an opportunity Percy had begun to fear would never come. "Oh, ride it yourself," he said, with a show of scorn and indifference. "You'll learn soon." But when the Yuma gravely shook his head and pointed once more to the bicycle Percy arose and walked toward it with assumed indifference, though he-felt his limbs trembling under him. He examined the injured wheel leisurely and saw that practically it was as good as if sound/ Nevertheless he pointed t6 the twisted spokes as though the troubli the Yumas had experienced lay in thi %ftfreWdeiSt*Bi took up their lances and stationed the: selves near, plainly to prevent any effort to escape. Percy mounted. At first he rode the bicycle round and round in a little circle, all the while causing it to wabble as if it were out of order. Under his indifference he was closely watching withr a Wildly beating heart for a chance to break past tbe line of lances and send his wheel spinning across the sand. Slowly he increased the circle, adding a yard or two to its diameter at every sweep. Suddenly seeing an opening he made a sharp, quick turn, and throwing all his strength into the rush made a dash for liberty. A threatening yell arose behind, and several lance points whizzed past him, but the haste with which they were thrown caused them to fly wildly. None touched him, and in another moment the young bicyclist had spun well out beyond the yelling circle and was flying with all speed across the gravelly waste, the Yumas in pursuit. Being splendid runners, the Indians crowded him uncomfortably close for the first 100 yards. At", that point the earth became yet firmer, and with the advantage of this better roadway Percy rapidly increased the distance between himself and these very; unpleasant acquaintances. They hung persistently on the track, however, though at the end of half an hour they had dwindled to mere specks. At the expiration of an hour they were no longer visible, and then Percy threw himself on the sand, feeling that he could not propel the safety another yard if his life depended on it. The Yumas did not come into view again, probably having abandoned the useless chase, and the next afternoon Percy reached Barbazon safe and sound. _.To]i/n TT. Whitson in New York . Jfress.

LESSON V, SECOND QUARTER, INTER-NATIONAL SERIES, APRIL 30. Text of the Lesson, Prov. i, 20-33—Memory Verses, 30-33—Golden Text, Heb. ill, 35—Commentary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. 20. "Wisdom erieth without; she uttereth her voice in the s. ^ets." When we read in the New Testament such words as these, "Christ, the wisdom of God," "Who of God Is made unto us wisdom" (I Cor. i, 24, 30), we have no difficulty in understanding who is meant in this book by wisdom. Just as Jesus Christ is both the living personal word and also the written word, so He is wisdom as to His person and as to His utterances. It is no wonder, then, that it is written, "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom" (iv, 7). 21. "She crieth in the chief place of con% course, in the openings of the gates. In the city she uttereth her words, saying." The great multitude are in the broad way of self and self pleasing, with little or no thought of a hereafter and a day of judgment. They care not for the fact that "whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap," and their only thought is pleasure and prosperity here and now (Math, vii, 13; Gal. vi, 7). Wisdom is represented as calling unto them as they hurry along their downward road. 22. "How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity, and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?" Simple ones, if they believe the devil, are easily led astray. If they believe God, they are easily led aright. If they go astray, they are soon among the scorners and thp fools. Yet wisdom loves them and cries unto them: "How Ipng?" "How long shal} thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?" How long wilt thou refuse tp humble thyself before Me" (Jer. iv, 14; Ex. x, 8)? 23. "Turn you at My reproof; behold I will pour out My Spirit unto you; I will make known My words unto you." He calls sq lovingly, so patiently, so perseveringly. Come unto Me; return unto the Lord; turn, O backsliding children; take with iyou words and turn to the Lord." These are some of the many words of the Lord to •the erring ones as He entreats them to come unto Him (Isa. Iv, 3,7; Jer. iii, 1, 7, 12,14; Hos. xiv, 2). He only asks us to turn to Him, and He will do all the rest, giving His words and His Spirit, Hi > words which are Spirit and Life (John vi, 63). 24. "Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded." It does not seem possible that a people who had been so wondrously dealt with could so treat such love, but the human heart is still the same, and the same love on His part is turned away from by those to whom His hands are imploringly stretched out. How is it with you?. 25.

J Revelation which Most People will Astonish And yet It is in Beality of Every-day Occurrence. The following communication is from one of our correspondents, Mrs. Carrie E. Martin, a lady well known and highly respected and who occupies a position of the highest social distinction in West Leyden, Mass. Her experience is of such a nature and its importance to many is so great and far-reaching, that we give it to our readers in her own words. " Last summer I was all run down, had chills, no appetite, very little sleep nights and none days, faint spells, trembling feelings and was so weak I could hardly walk around the room. I continued to run down in health and strength until I feared utter nervous prostration with its untold miseries. " I sent for our town physician and he came a good many times. I soon had to give up work entirely, still his medicines did me no good. I tried to ride out one morning, but went only a few rods and had to come home. My husband then went to church, leaving me with the hired help and my children. Such a terrible day as I spent tongue cannot describe, I could scarcely get from the couch to a chair. " When my husband came in from church I told him I was worse and that I would die if I did not get help soon; that I would not take any more of the doctor's medicine, but try Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, if he thought best. " He advised me to try it and went immediately and got a bottle, which I began to take; up to this time we knew nothing of its value except as we liad seen it advertised. Hotels. JJOTEL IRWIN, 90 Pearl Street, Hartford, Conn. MRS. WM. ELLIOTT, Proprietor. xxviii, 15). Like the men before the flood, whose houses God filled with good things, they said unto God, "Depart from us; what can the Almighty do for us" (Job xxii, 15-18)? 26. "I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh." Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap, and he that soweth the wind shal] reap the whirlwind" (Gal. vi, 7; Hos. viii, 7). Concerning all who take counsel against Him it is written, "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision" (Ps. ii, 4), and if His loving invitations are persistently despised we must remember His words, "None of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper" (Luke xiv, 24). 27. "When your fear cometh as desolation and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you." In due time these things will come upon all who despise His love and make light of His salvation. Because there is wrath, beware lest He take thee away with His stroke; then a great ransom cannot deliver thee (Job xxxvi, 18). 88. "Then shall they call upon me, but J will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me." Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but He will not hear them; He will even hide His face from them at that time, as they behaved themselves ill in their doings (Mic. iii, 4). He told Jeremiah that the intercession of Moses and Samuel could not save the nation, and He told Ezekiel that the presence of Noah, Daniel and Job would be of no avail (Jer. xv, 1; Ezek. xiv, 14, 20). Sin may become so great that nothing will do but judgment. 29. "For that they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord." They say unto God, Depart from us, for we desire not the knowledge of Thy ways (Job xxi, 14). The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, a foundation of life, a great treasure (Prov. i, 7; ix, 10; xiv, 27; Isa. xxxiii, 6). But they had no reverence for God, no respect for His ways, no gratitude for His gifts. The fool says there is no God, and many a one who would not say this wishes that there was no God. The carnal mind is enmity against God (Rom. viii, 7). 80. "They would none of my counsel; they despised all my reproof." Our Lord Jesus said that whosoever heard His words, but did them not, was like a.man building on sand, only to have everything swept away (Math, vii, 26, 27). f i 81. "Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way and be filled with their own devices." Their own wickedness will correct them and their backslidings reprove them. Hear, O earth; behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words (Jer. ii, 19; vi, 19). If people will not receive the truth, God will let them receive delusion and a lie (II Thess. ii, 10-12). He simply lets them have their own way, with its consequences, if they insist on having it. 82. "For the turning away of the simple Shall.slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them." To turn away from God is to turn one's back on the only source of love and light. It is to choose darkness rather than light (John iii, 19). 83. "But whoso heark'eneth unto Me shall dwell safely and shall be quiet from fear of evil." What a wonderful salvation our Wonderful Lord, has provided for His enemies if they will only turn to Hiin in true penitence. Life, eternal life, abundant pai> don, forgiveness of all sins, with the assurance of there being no more remembered, an inheritance incorruptible, a joint heirship with Jesus Chtfst, with the promise of ill things temporal and spiritual that we can possibly need. need, and get it at a you can afford to pay.

He informed me that I might choose any doctor I preferred to meet him in consultation. '' I said to him, ' then you consider me pretty badly off ?" . f i He answered, ' I certainly do, and alnn.ll not prescribe for you again until some other doctor sees you, as I do not know what to give you next." " I then said to him, ' perhaps you will be offended, but I have not taken any of your medicine for two days but am taking Dr. Greene's NervuraC blood and nerve remedy.' '' He answered, ' I am not offended; if it will help you I shall be very glad, You may continue its use a week and if no better, then we will have counsel.' "But at the end of the week I was better. In two weeks I was a good deal better, no chills, no faint feelings, I could eat some and sleep quite well. In three weeks I was around and about the house. In four weeks my hired girl left me and I went to doing my housework alone, and have since continued to do so, with seven in the family. . . " Since that time our family physician has advised its use from time to time, saying that it would keep up my strength better. He has advised others to take it, telling them of the good it did me, and to-day I have reason, yes great reason, to thank God for my recovery, and through the use of Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy. I am only too glad to testify to its merits. God bless Dr. Greene and his wonderful medicine." This remarkable remedy is purely vegetable and harmless, and can be procured at any drug store for §1 per bottle. Like the above able and excellent physician, all doctors of high standing recommend the sick to use it, for it cures. It is es-specially recommended to take as a spring medicine. Everybody needs a spring medicine and both physicians and the people unite in pronouncing this the best of spring remedies. Use it now, sure. Doctors prescribe and ijecommend it because it is not a jjatent medicine but a physicians prescription, the discovery of the eminent specialist, Dr. Greene, of 35 West 14th street, New York, who is so wonderfully successful in curing all forms of nervous and chronic diseases, and who can be consulted free, personally or by letter.
