A Comprehensive Review of the Lessons of the Second Quarter—Golden Text, Heb. xil, 2—Commentary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. LESSON I.—The Triumphal Entry (Mark xi, 1-11). Golden text, Mark xi, 9, "Hosan-na, blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord." His knowledge of all things and His control over all things may be dwelt upon with great profit. Even the untamed ass' colt is perfectly submissive to Him. His entry into Jerusalem in this manner, which was a liberal fulfillment of Zech. ix, 9, teaches us to believe that the other prophecies of Zech. ii, 4,12; vi, 18; viii, 3; xii, 10; xiv, 3, 4, 9, and many such like, shall be just as liberally fulfilled. LESSON II.—The Resurrection—An Easter Lesson (I Cor. xv, 8-14). Golden text, I Cor. xv, 20, "Now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept." Unless Christ had risen from the dead there would have been no salvation, no forgiveness of sins, no gospel to preach. But during the 40 days between His resurrection and ascension He was seen and talked with by many people who were His disciples on at least ten different occasions, and after He ascended visibly to heaven he was seen by Saul and Stephen and John. LESSON III.—Watchfulness (Math, xxiv, 42-51). Golden text, Mark xiii, 83, "Take ye heed, watch and pray." This is called a temperance lesson, and if received into the heart would greatly tend to make us temperate in all things. There is nothing so purifying and separating and inspiring as to be constantly watching for the coming of the Son of Man. Three essentials of a good servant are given—ready, faithful, wise. Ready to meet his Master at any moment, faithful to his Master's affairs at all times, and wise in his watchfulness and faithfulness, his lamp filled and brightly burning. LESSON IV.—The Lord's Supper (Mark xiv, 12-26). Golden text, Luke xxii, 19, "This do in remembrance of me." We have here another instance of His omniscience and of the subjection of willing hearts unto Him. An appropriate and helpful word in connection with the lesson is the association of I Cor. xi, 26, with Luke xix, 13, "Ye do show, the Lord's death till He come," therefore "occupy till He come." And how can we better occupy than by dying constantly to self and living unto God, yielding fully to Him for His pleasure? LESSON V.—The Agony In Gethsemane (Mark xiv, 32-42). Golden text, John xviii, 11, "The cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?" Not even the favored three could in any sense appreciate the awfulness of this hour, but while He agonized they slept. This agony He only could endure, and it was all for me. How meekly we should bear our greatest trials, which are so small when compared with His (II Cor. iv, 10-18). LESSON VI.—Jesus Before the High Priest (Mark xiv, 58-64). Golden text, Isa. liii, 8, "He is despised and rejected of men." Meekly submitting to be bound and led away, He patiently endures this mockery of a trialj falsely accused of many things, Was nothing to answer, untilHe was points edly asked, "Art thou the Christ?" to which He replied, "I am," and added that He should yet be seen on the right hand of power and glory. LESSON VII.—Jesus Before Pilate (Mark xv, 1-15). Golden text, Mark xv, 5, "But Jesus yet answered nothing, so that Pilate marveled." What a night it was, what torture, and so prolonged 1 His disciples at first all forsook Him, John afterward returned, and Peter followed afar off. Alone, in communion with His Father, He bore it all. If this fellowship was broken because of His being our sin bearer, as it seems to have been on the cross when forsaken by God, how un-describably awful His condition was. Let each one say, "All forme." LESSON Vin.—Jesus on the Cross (Mark xv, 22-37). Golden text, Rom. v, 8, "While we were yet sinners Christ died for us." Here is matter enough for a whole review, the cfnter of the whole Bible story. "His own sslf bare our sins in His own body on the treB" (I Pet. ii, 24). Numbered with the transgressors, a murderer released because He was sacrificed, the great work of atonement finished. Note His seven sayings on the cross, and remember that this event was the topic of conversation by Moses and Elijah on the Mount of Transfiguration (Luke ix, 80, 81). LESSON IX.—The Resurrection of Jesus (Mark xvi, 1-8). Golden text, Luke xxiv, 34, "The Lord is risen indeed." And now we have an Easter lesson in midsummer, but the great fact of His resurrection, and ours because of His, should be ever before ns. See how the zeal of the women was misguided because, although it was loving, it lacked faith, and without faith it is impossible to please Him. If we are risen with Christ, let us set our affections on things above and live to tell of redemption through a risen Christ. LESSON X.—The Walk to Emmaus (Luke xxiv, 13-32). Golden text, Luke xxiv, 82, "He opened to us the Scriptures." The thought of the golden text seems to be the main one of this lesson. These disciples were in doubt and darkness because they did not believe the prophets concerning the literal death and resurrection of Israel's Messiah, and many are in darkness today because they do not believe the prophets concerning the return of Christ to sit on David's throne and reign over the bouse of Jacob and over the whole earth and to restore all things of which the prophets have spoken. LESSON XI.—Peter and the Risen Lord (John xxi, 4-17). Golden text, John xxi, 17, "Lord, Thou knowest all things; Thou knowest that I love Tb.ee." We have here an apparent lack of faith because of an unseen Lord and a consequent fruitless attempt to supply their need in the old way ere they left all to .follow Him. Wehave also His loving-kindness and gracious provision for their need, With the gentle rebuke to Peter. Those whom He calls to feed His sheep and lambs need have no care about their own welfare, for He will surely see to that. LESSON XII.—The Saviour's Parting Words (Luke xxiv, 44-58)—A Missionary Lesson. Golden text, Math, xxviii, 19, "Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations." Again, He opens to them the Scriptures and then ^commissions t^em ; to become His 'Wit-chesses, preaching repentance and theremis* vsion of sins in His name, the power for this service being the Holy Spirit, and the encouragement His coming again, according to Acts i, if. Let us be obedient to His command; filled with His word and Spirit*1 and ever waiting for His return.

She sat on the sliding cushion, The dear wee woman of four; Her feet in their shiny slippers Hung dangling over the floor. She meant to .be good, she had promised, And so with her big brown eyes She stared at the meeting house windows And counted the crawling flies. JShe looked fax up at the preacher, But she thought of the honey bees Droning away in the blossoms That whitened the cherry trees. She thought of the broken basket Where, curled in a dusky heap, Three sleek, round puppies with fringy ears Lay snuggled and fast asleep. JBuch soft, warm bodies to cuddle, Such queer little hearts to beat, Such swift, round tongues to kiss. Such sprawling, cushiony feet I • She could feel in her clasping fingers The touch of the satiny skin And a cold, wet nose exploring The dimples under her chin. Then a sudden ripple of laughter Ran over the parted lips, Bo quiok that she could not catch it With her rosy finger tips. The people whispered, "Bless the child!" As each one waked from a nap, But the dear wee woman hid her face For shame in her mother's lap. —New Orleans Times-Democrat. THE FOURTEENTH. It has been said that it is always the unexpected that happens, and that to be prepared for emergencies one must be both a philosopher and a fatalist. As Professor Smythe, musician, piano tuner and general utility man—in H musical way—was going to the Globe theater, where he was to play a flute obligato with the regular orchestra, he would have been much surprised if any hint of a new calamity in his run down fortunes could have been then and there foretold. He certainly thought he had taxed the ingenuity of adverse fate to its utmost, and he had enough misery on hand to last a lifetime. But the misfortune awaiting him was of a grotesque turn and quite unlike the others, which were the commonplace ones of illness, poverty and bad luck in everything he undertook. As he walked along in the shrinking, depressed fashion that had become natural to him through habitude with misfortune he was aware of the sudden opening of a door in a handsome residence he was passing and a flood of orange light beaming across his path. At the same time a man in evening dress ran lightly down the steps, seized him by the arm and said briskly; "My dear sir, excuse me, but would you do me a great favor?" Professor Smythe forgot to draw into his shell, so sudden was this attack. He stood still, like the wedding guest in the "Ancient Mariner," but finally stammered his need of haste and the occasion of it. "I will pay you twice as much, and you will have nothing to da but make accommodation, afid I shall never forget it. I can see by your appearance that you are a gentleman. Consider me a friend and accept my offer." "But what service is required of me?" asked the professor, who had a vague idea that a grand piano had suddenly gone wrong. "Why, you see, I am giving a dinner to some friends. It is all on the table, and we have just discovered that there are 18 of us. That would never do at alL Now if you will dine with us, you shall be well paid for your services, and I dare say you will be in time for your flute solo at the theater, as you can be excused when yon desire. You will come? Thanks 1" The professor followed his host in a state of absolute subjection, as if he might have been hypnotized,, but the fact was that the poor man had not broken his fast since morning, and the delicious aroma of the dinner coming through the open door proved irresistible. He gave his name in a whisper, was handed over to a servant, who took him up stairs into a guest chamber, helped him remove his shabby overcoat and whisked off his best suit with a silver handled brush, taking its threadbare glint for dust. It was well he was engaged to play; otherwise he would not have been in evening dress. He was beginning to enjoy the little comedy in which he was himself an actor. There was no introduction. His host motioned him to a seat between the maiden lady and a severe matron who turned her silken back on him to talk, to her neighbor on the other side. The professor's pride did not once assert itself. He was masquerading—that was all. But fate had not done with Professor Smythe. . , The consomme had a dash of champagne in it, and new life was infused into the veins of this professional diner out The fish and game and pate that followed were aH triumphs of the culinary art, and the hungry man oloyed the edge of his appetite, not by the bare imagination of a feast, but by the feast itself. It was no feast of the Barmecede either, for the viands were actual, and the wine was not a pretense, but a delightful vintage, served in cut glass goblets. The poor professor felt like saying to his neighbor, "Pinoh me!" for it was lilra a dream or tfn illusion rather than a reality.. But the striking of the olook reminded him that he had been there anhour, and as he had broken the spell of tho unlucky 18 he ventured to excuse himself and rose sti£3y from his fclace and bowed himself out of the room. ^ He was followed by a servant who handed him aq envelope with t&e compliments of the gentleman witfi whom he had just dined. Not for woflds would he £ave opened it, though it was unsealed, before the man, but he accepted it graciously and went up stairs to get his hat and overcoat unattended. A.number of handsomely appointed chamber* were on the >uppor .hall, and the professor glanced into each as ho passed on hia w&y to the particular ggesfc chamber where he had left his belongings. Perhaps he was a, trifle overoon)e 1>f sherry and other beverages, but he •hrtrtglit thfl room had been darkened and that he was right. He stood a mo* laent in the doorway and looked cautiously in, peering about at the luxuiy, tot at the same time noting that it vvafl not the dressing room far whiohhe was tu^d^ln^ew^dor againtheunex-into the room, the door was , instantly locked upon him, and he was a prisoner. "Smythe luck I" said the poor man as he tried in vain to open the door and knew by the rumpus he could hear outside that the house was in a state of excitement. "I suppose they win think I was trying to steal something." And to add to his terror |te heard the alarmed household coming up stairs, and the next moment the door of his room was opened, and his host, backed by all the male guests, stood in the open doorway. "What are you doing here?" was the first question his host propounded. "Tell the truth now as you would hope for mercy." "I came here to get my hat and coat," said the professor, the dignity of all the Smythes since Mount Ararat in his thin, rasping tones. "A likely story. Turn your pockets inside out," commanded the host, "I refuse to do it." "Then I will send for the police. I was willing to give you a chance, but if you refuse to be searched you are guilty." "I am not a thief." "I do not know. Your actions are very suspicious. You can explain matters to the chief of police. There must be reasons why you refuse to be searched. If you are honest, you can have nothing to conceal." A hollow laugh rang through the room Was it possible the bold intruder dared to laugh at them? It was the laugh of despair, and as such it smote upon the heart of the host, who looked troubled and perplexed. His enforced guest saw the look, and it suggested a line of action to him. *T5end these men away," he said, pointing to the group of alarmed guests crowding in at the door. He was glad the women had remained below stairs and aot come to gaze upon his discom-fiture\ He did not lmow that they were locked up in fear aij.d trembling in a distant parlor. '. x . "We won't go," chorused the group. "He may want to murder you." "I don't think he will,'' said the host, who was really soft hearted. "I'll trust him, and you fellows can go to the ladies. I'll call if I need help." They went, rather glad to be out of it, and the two men, left together, eyed each other, one waiting for the other to speak. They were exactly opposite in appearance, one rosy and rubicund, the other thin and anxious—a meager travesty on a successful man. "Irefused to let you search me," said the professor slowly, "because—oh, my God, how can I. acknowledge it—I am a thief!" The other man started and moved toward tho door. Then he waited. "Ihavestolen from you—here, let me show you, and you will know why I could have died easier than to have these people gloating over me. See herer-riuad •here and h e r e . : : " etonebyone. They made a strange exhibit as he piled them up on the table in front of him. They were a roll of dinner bread, a pate, a sweetbread rolled in a leaf of lettuce, a chicken breast, a bit of toasted bread and a caviare sandwich. He brought them out to the last crumb, with the manner of one who lays his life on the altar of sacrifice. "Great heavens, man, what does this mean?" asked the astonished host. "It means," replied the other solemnly, "that my siok wife and my little children are starving, and that I pilfered from my share of food at your table to give them, for my rent is overdue, and the money I earned is already spent." "But what did you eat yourself?" "More than I havp eaten for many a day. But now do vHth me what you will." -• '' Would you mind putting these things back into your pocket?" inquired his host vaguely. "Now come with me." He took him by the arm and led him down stairs and into the presence of the phalring guests. "I—I made a bad mistake, my friends," he said. "This gentleman has proved himself perfectly innocent of any attempt at crimdjT'and I must beg you to remain silent as to the events of this evening. He is under my protection from this time, and you will all agree with me that we are extremely sorry that such a mistake should have occurred." Of course they all agreed with the sentiments of their host, whatever they were, and Professor Smythe was allowed to take his leave amid profuse apologies.—- Mrs. M. L.

WESTMINSTER, CtJ., March 21thl 1894.-— Some time ago, on awakening one morn-> big, I found that I had rhduitnatisin in my knee so badly that as I remarked to my wife, it would be impossible for .me to attend to business that day. Remembering that I had some of Chamberlain'^ Pain Balm in my store I sent for a bottle, and rubbed the afflicted parts thoroughly with it, according to within an hour I wa One application had done the It isf the beet. liniment on the and l sell it Under ajpoeitive ^botnp«mvffl[^ gnd A. family, and must work that others may live. Rain or shine, warm or cold, she must get to her place of employment sharp on time. With the sunshine and glad-^ ness all crushed out of her* life,, she goes on until she falls. Oh! this pic-tures only one of thousands. Some work in cramped positions, but the great majority of . working girls, so to speak, live on their feet. Among the latter the symptoms of female diseases are early manifested by weak and aching backs, pains in the lower limbs and lower part of the stomach. The "monthly period" is irregular: with some profuse, with others a cessation. The sure symptom, leucor-rhoea, is present, and with faintness, weakness, loss of appetite and sleep. She may be sure that a womb trouble assails her. She knows not where to go for aid.

It has seven full octaves (as many keys as a $1,000 piano) and looks exactly like a fine upright piano. There are no stops in view nor any unsightly bellows pedals, but the instrument is worked by two pedals exactly like those on a piano, and a six-year-old child is able to work tbem easily. The delicacy and variety of its tones are wonderful, and the touch so light and quick that the most difficult piano pieces can be executed thereon without difficulty. It is a marvelous improvement upon the parlor organ, and has created a great sensation in musical circles. The price is not higher than that of the ordinary organ. This delightful instrument is manufactured by H. LEHR & CO., Easton, Pa., and for sale only by L.
