While we now turn back from the life and work of the Lord Jesus, as revealed to us in the gospels, to the story of the Lord's dealings with Israel on the way to the promised land, we are learning of the same Lord whose goings forth have been from of old, from the days of eternity (Mic. v, 2, margin). It was not because of any worthiness in them, but only because of His own faithfulness and His promise to Abraham that He brought them out of Egypt (Deut. vii, 7, 8; Gen. xv, 13, 14). It was now the third month since they had been redeemed from the bondage of Egypt. They had come to Mount Sinai, and the Lord had offered to make them a peculiar unto Himself above all people, a can gave you money kingdom of priests, a holy nation, if only they would obey His voice. This they readily promised to do, and now we see them gathered about Mount Sinai, the mountain quaking greatly and covered with fire and smoke, out of the midst of which God speaks the words of our lesson to the people. See chapter xix and Deut. v, 4, 22, 24, 26. It was a day, in this respect, unlike any before or since in the history of this world. He first reminds them that their redemption from Egypt was wholly His doing without any help of theirs, for "salvation is of the Lord" (Jonah ii, 9), and He never asks an unredeemed soul to keep His com mandments. The only command to the unsaved is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (I John iii, 23; Acts xvi, 31), then when Christ has become to them the end of the law for righteousness He will fulfill in them the righteousness of the law, enabling them to walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit (Rom. x, 4; viii, 4). 3. Since they were redeemed by the only living and true God, to make Him a name on the earth iu the sight of all nations (II Sam. vii, 23; Isa. lxiii, 12,14), therefore they were forbidden to have aught to do in any way with the gods of the nations, idols of wood and stone, the work of men's hands (II Kings xvii, 36,37; Jer. x, 10,11). We who have been redeemed from the curse of the law by the work of our Substitute (Gal. iii, 13) are to have no idols between our soul and God, but make it manifest that we worship only Him. 4-6. Because they saw no similitude on the day that God spoke to them out of the midst of the fire, therefore they were to use no images nor likeness of anything in their worship of God. God is seven times called a jealous God. The other six places are Ex. xxxiv, 14; Deut. iv, 24; v, 9; vi, 15; Joshua xxiv, 19; Nah. i, 2. The word translated jealous also means to buy, purchase or redeem. We are redeemed to be a people for his own possession (Titus ii, 14, R. V,) and He wants us all for Himself. 7, The name above «very name must be ever hallowed as Jesus taught us to pray (Math, vi, 9). Not only is all kind of so called profanity forbidden, but as the name stands for the character (Ex. xxxiv, 5-7) all that would in any way belittle the character of God niust be carefully avoided. magnify His name. 8-11. The Sabbath was made for man, and the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath (Mark ii, 27, 28). If, then. He is my Lord, the Sabbath is specially mine that on it I may have special communion with Him. In Isa. lviii, 13,14, we are taught that we are to honor Him, not doing our own ways, nor finding our own pleasure, nor speaking our own words, and that thus we shall delight ourselves in the Lord. In Col. ii, 16,17, we read that even the Sabbath is a shadow of things to come, perhaps referring to the keeping of a Sabbath that remains for the people of God (Heb. iv, 9) but which we can foretaste even here (Heb. iv, 10). 12. The first four commandments, ordinarily known as the first table of the law, are summed up by our Lord Jesus in Mark xii, 80, 31 (quoting from Deut. vi, 5 and Jer. xix, 18) as loving God with all the heart, and the last six as loving our neighbor as ourselves. Or as it is in Rom. xiii, 10, "Love is the fulfilling of the law." This fifth command is spoken of in Eph. vi, 2, as "The first commandment with promise." Next to God we are to honor our parents, and a curse is pronounced upon such as do otherwise (Deut. xxvil, 16; Prov. 80,17). 13. "Thou shalt not kill." In our Lord's commentary on this in Math, v, 21, 22, He teaches that anger lies at the root of murder, and in John iii, 15, it is written that "he that hateth his brother is a murderer," referring back to the story of Cain and Abel. Not only are we forbidden to hate any one, but we are forbidden to speak evil or even imagine evil against another (James iv, 11; Zech. vii, 10; viii, 17). 14. "Thou shalt not commit adultery." That this command reaches not only to the sinful act, but is broken by even a sinful thought, is clear from our Lord's comment upon it in Math, v, 27, 28. Another aspect of it is found in Jas. iv, 4, where we are told that to love or be a friend of the world that hates God is in His sight a form of adultery. Let us pray: Wash, Lord, and purify my heart, And make it clean in every part, And when 'tis clean, Lord keep it, too, For that is more than 1 can do. 15. "Thou shalt not steal." Many would scorn to take what does not belong to them, as between man and man, who possibly might have to plead guilty when searched by the question, "Will a man rob Godf" Inasmuch as our relation to God is the first question, let the believer ask himself, Am I robbing God of any portion of my being or my timeor my money f He claims our body asHiB property (Rom. xii, 1,2; I Cor. vi,19, 20), and at least a seventh of our time and a tenth of our income. * 16. "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." Some love lying rather than righteousness (Ps. Iii, 8), but such are finally found without the city (Rev. xxii, 15). "He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within Soy house; he that telleth lies shall not tarty in my sight" (Ps. ci, 7). God is a God off; Truth—the Spirit is a Spirit of Truth, and Jesus is the Truth (Isa. lxv, 16; John xvi, 13; xiv,6). When they have full control of iis, we will bear no 17. "Thou shalt not covet." We might infer from Rom. vii, 7, in connection with Phil, iii, 6, that Paul fancied that he had kept the law pretty thoroughly except on this one point, bat he learned, as James also did, that to keep the whole law and offend only on one point makes one guilty of all (Jas. ii, 10; Rom. vii, 18). "Guilty" is the word for every one (Rom. iii, 19,20). Some one ha* well said, "To do What the law requires 1 must have life, and to be what the law requires I must have righteousness, but by nature I have neither and am therefore cursed." When I receive ChriBt, He becomes my life and righteousness and will fulfil the law in me. t— BDOKLKK'S ARNICA.

"I'm serry, said I, "but you look very well when you"— "Oh, that is just it," she broke in angrily. "We are to be put off with a compliment, as if one cared for looks or"— "Or dresses," said I, glancing at the pretty gown which showed beneath the opera cloak. She winced. "One must dress somehow,'' said Miss Lambton- Hyatt coldly. "Oh, yes, somehow," said I cheerfully. She regarded me with scorn and a little doubt. "Of course, you think you have me in a corner. But Iconld explain it all," said she. "Yes?" I asked. "If I liked," she said, and looked indifferently out of the window. "What station is this?" she asked. "Oh, it's all right," I answered, and there was silence in the carriage for a space. "I wish you would see it in the proper way," she began presently, turning on me abruptly. "I will endeavor to,'' said I politely. "'Pray explain." She frowned. "Well," said she, "yon must surely see that the evolution of woman is continuing. She has developed a great deaL " "Of what?" I asked. "Of nothing," she exclaimed impatiently. "Her position has developed, and she must have more freedom." "Freedom?" I asked inquiringly. "Yes, freedom to come and go, freedom to live her own life. What is the difference, pray, between man and woman?" "Why"— said I. "There are certain differences, cer tainly," said Miss Lambton-Hyatt, hesitating, "but not the great distinctions that are vulgarly supposed. A woman has a mind, she has her own thoughts, and she ought to pursue her own career like a man." " But marriage''—I began. "Pooh! Marriage!" said she contemptuously. "If she likes to marry, let her. So does a man, and it does not interfere with him." " Then a woman,'' said I, trying to understand, "should be as much like a man as maybe?" Miss Lambton-Hyatt considered. "No," she said, "you put words into my mouth. I never said that." "Well?" I asked. "She ought to be as independent as a man," said she triumphantly. She looked her triumph at me, and my eyes wandered over her face, and to her hair and down again to the rich silk of her opera cloak. "Why do you look at me like that?" wasthi^r^W she interrupted, "you wero thinking that I am too weak or pretty or fragile to be independent. That's what men are always thinking. It's their stook argument. Argument!" She laughed and turned to me again. "I put in practice my theories," she said deliberately and watching me for the effect of the thunderbolt. I started. "What do you mean?" I asked hastily. She nodded. "I live my own life now," said she. "Whose life did you"— But there I broke off, for Miss Lambton-Hyatt's handsome eyes were glittering. '' Oh,'' I said feebly, "that is interesting!" "Do yon think," she said, "that I am tied to a man's coattail like other girls?'' "No, indeed!" said I, shaking my head. "Do you think that I come and go at anyone's behest?" "No, no," I said, shaking my head more firmly. "Do you think that I would obey—well, you, for Instance?" "Good gracious, no !" I said in haste. "Do you think"— "Certainly not," I broke in hurriedly. "See bow free I am," she went on warmly, and throwing back her cloak in her enthusiasm she wayed her long, white arms significantly about the carriage. "Yes, indeed," I said, looking at the arms. "Here I am, at li ;S0 at night, returning from a solitary expedition to the theater—all alone." "I am here,'' I put in bashfully. She looked at me and frowned. "Oh, that is an accident," she said, "I met you." "A fortunate accident," I murmured. "What?" said Miss Lambton-Hyatt sharply. "For jne,'' I added humbly. ' 'Well,'' she said, "is it not far better to be quite independent like this than to be forever hanging upon some one else for what you 'want, like an encumbrance?" "Ever so pinch better," I assented '•quickly. The train rolled out of the station. Suddenly I leaped to my feet and thrust down the window. "Good heavens!" I cried. "What's the matte^^ BaM Miss Lambton-Hyatt anxiously^lk I I pulled in my head, shift Hie window slowly and sat down opposite >to her. "That was our station," I said. She looked at me in distress.

She dropped into her seat, t&eathing hard. "What will happen?" . she asked. "Why"—said L " We shall have to get out at the next station?" she said, with a note of interrogation in her voice and some embarrassment in l$e? manner. "This train does not stop for 20 miles," I explained. ".Oh!" she cried, blanching.

"Hotel!" she exclaimed, looking at her dress and then at me. "But what will people think? What will"— "Well, it's the same for me," said I nonchalantly. "Oh, but it's different with you!" she broke forth. "How can you compare the two cases? You're aman, and"— "You're a woman, " I finished for her. Sheeyedme. "You are very unkind," she said tearfully.' "You take advantage of me." "Indeed," I protested, "I will do exactly what you tell me. Only give me your instructions.'' She wrung her hands. "But I have none," she exclaimed. "I have no idea what to da I"— I sat looking at her. "You might have seen what station it was and told me," she said presently in a reproachful voice. "I beg your pardon," said I apologetically, '' but I was listening to you. You were so interesting in what you were saying about the independence"— "Oh, please don't!" said she. Her humiliation was so complete that I had not the heart to proceed, and I was silent. The train slackened, settled down to an easier pace and crept decorously into the station. We landed upon a desolate stretch of platform and stood miserably, watching the lights go out. "Well, here we are," said I cheerfully as darkness slowly enveloped us. Miss Lambton-Hyatt burst into tears. I entreated her, I coaxed her, I comforted her. If I remember, I took her hand in mine. She was a pitiful little figure, with her weeping face above the gay beauty of her gown. "Oh, what shall I do?" she moaned piteously. "Don't leave me," she wailed, and held me tight. "Stay," said I, "we will see what can be done." I found the station master going to bed and conferred with him. Then I returned, and Miss Lambton-Hyatt clutched me. "Don't leave me"again," she implored. '' This darkness and loneliness arte so horrible:" " Oh, it's all right,'' I said. "There's a sort of milk train passing up in ten minutes or so." Her eyes opened and shone even in the darkness, "We will go up in it," I added reassure ingly. "And we shall get back?" she cried eagerly. "By 1 or thereabouts," J answered. "That's not so very late," she remarked She sighed with relief and dropped my hand. There was a little pause, and then she turned to me. H Thank you very much, Mr. Somerville," said she. J We spoke little till the train came^ but as the engine oame puffing through Miss Lambton-Hyatt eyed it with f$vor£ and then, "It's a bother getting to be$ so late," she remarked q.uite coolly:, We made the- journey in ' . . "You will think," said Miss Lamb* ton-Hyatt as I conducted her to -her home, "that I have betrayed my sex," -J protested. f'No," said she peremptorily, "it is idle to deny it. I know what you are thinking." "In that case, of course," said I. "But you are wrong," said she frankly, turning upon her doorstep. "I have a latchkey," she explained. "Of course," I assented. "No; you are wrong," she repeated, lifting her fine eyes and regarding the white stars in philosophic beatitude. "No doubt," I agreed. "You see,'' went on Miss Lambton- Hyatt, taking no heed of me, "our cases were quite different. You had no one to be anxious about you." "Not'a soul," I said. "And then I was in^aven-ing dress, which is not suitable, and— and rather embarrassing when''— '' Certainly," I said promptly. "The cases are quite different, and if I had been in evening dress, and, still more, if I had had some one to be anxious about me, I should"— "Yes, Mr. Somerville, just as much as I was,'' she said firmly. "Well, now," said I, "why not let us put the cases square?" "What do you mean?" she asked, looking puzzled. "Why," said I, "give me some one to be anxious about me." "You can't invent people like that," she replied, and turning her back on me put the key in the latch. _ "Stop!" I called. "Don't turn that!" She faced me indignantly. "What right"— she exclaimed. I seized her hand—the one with the key. "Answer me," I said authoritatively. "Will you square the cases?" r A flood of color surged over her face. "Shouldn't I be increasing my own responsibilities very much?" she asked, with a little, low laugh. "Oh, I will take those!" I answered, pulling her closer.—H. B.

Reader, I do not sit down to write an article descriptive of my home town with a selfish desire to write an unjust encomium on the merits of Enfield as a place of residence and a home, but I do so feeling it deserves an abler pen to do it justice and to show to the world that this town possesses many desirable attributes and surroundings that place it foremost among the progressive towns of the ever famous Nutmeg state. If I travel north, east, south or west, I always return to Enfield with the full satisfaction that no place can surpass it for health, convenience, comfort and pleasure. I will give a few substantial reasons for the statement I have made after years of residence here. First, it is healthful, capable of perfect drainage, and has a complete system of water supply—pure water, drawn from the subterranean reservoirs of mother earth. It has pure air, free from all malarial taint that makes life so miserable, painful, unhappy and abbreviated. It is located in the pleasant valley of the Connecticut river, and is protected from devastating storms and cyclones by gently sloping hills and mountains. It has connection with all points of the compass* by two lines of railroads, being less than four hours from New York city, Albany or Boston. We have some of the best hard gravel roadbeds in any section for business or pleasure driving, and the highways leading from this town to nearby points of interest can but suit the most fastidious. We have scenery and extended views of mountains in the surrounding country which vie with the famous Berkshire Hills. We have scholastic advantages that residents are proud of, and our academic institutions have earned a reputation that ranks them among the first-class schools of the state. Our churches of various denominations are ample to afford the privilege of divine worship to all, as conscience may.dictate, and our re^pfe^abili^intheifspeoialcallings to satisfy the public need. Electric lights send forth their halcyon rays in the streets in the western part of the town, aiding the vigilant officers of the law in preventing crime and apprehending offenders. It is but a pleasant drive of an hour to Forest park, where much is found to interest and enjoy. It takes less time to visit Pine Point grove, in the town limits, situated on Shaker pond, where boating and fishing can be enjoyed, as well as the healthful and strengthening piney atmosphere. Messrs. Terry & Son, the managers, spare no labor or expense to gratify, entertain and please their patrons and give them the worth of their money. Families and friends and societies from far and near meet here and enjoy a holiday of sociability, real pleasure, rest and profit that often make the most joyous episodes and happy memories of life. THE PRESS has a place among the first local journals in the country, and its power for good to 'advance the interests of the people has been and will continue to be great. Such are a few of the actual benefits Enfield affords for the enjoyment of its residents; nor is this all, for its people are hospitable, charitable and sociable, full of energy, pluck and perseverance, determined to work onward and upward to advance the future prosperity of the whole town.

A. G. TUTTLE, N.Y., N.H. & H. R.R. Gen'l Freight Dep't-. jtuitt' A New Musi Is it an Organ or a Piano ? All the objections to the parlor organ are at last done away with by this new invention. 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 them 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 Li. P. Abbe Son, Thompsonville, Conn., who are always on the lookout for the latest and best goods in the market. Call ana see it whether you wish to buy or not.
