RALEISH TO LOSE TANK CAMP From Bevt Available Information It Is fntimated That All Canvas Camps Will be Abandoned. Washington (Special). Raleigh's delegation that came to the National capital to intercede with the war de partment in an effort to have 'Camp Polk made permanent; returned -with little of the confidence they carried back when they came here to bid for the tank corps training school. The war department glinted to the visitors that only one tank camp would be maintained in the United States and that would possibly be located near the Mexican border. In connection with the policy as to the retention cf camps and canton ments, Secretary Baker, in a state ment said: ' "Under the regular army legislation, as it was prior to the emergency legis- Jation of this war, there is authority ; mainly because of the superior qual under the Chambeilain bill to draw j ities which Joseph possessed. This together some divisions of the regular j favoiitism expressed itself in a su- army and have them as a nucleus to be used as the basis of any subsequent army that the Congress may author ize. Some of the camps will undoubtedly be abandoned speedily," the Secretary said. "The first ones to be discontin ued will be certain of the c-auvas camps." Camp Polk is included in the list of canvas camps and in the light cf the Secretary's statement the delegation here entertained little hope of Camp Polk remaining in the T&r Heel cap-. ial long. Construction work yas or dered stopped there a few-. hours after President Wilson read to Congress tho terms of the armistice. .which Germany accepted in order to quit lighting.

Teacher of Kngrlisn Bibla in the Mood Bible Institute of Chicago.) (Copyright, 1918, ' Western Newpapr Union.) LESSON TOR DECEMBER 1 THE STORY OF JOSEPH. LESSON TEXT-Genesis Si :1S-2S. GOLDEN TEXT Hatred atirrh up strifes, but lov covreth up ail trans gressions. Proverbs 10:12. DEVOTIONAL READING Psalms 4. ADDITIONAL MATERIAL Genesis 37: i 1.17 i j0.eDh the Well.Beloverf Son (37:1-4). Joseph was Jacob's favorite eon. This was due partly to the fact that he ras the on of the wife of his first love and the son of hs old age. but perior position and more respectabla clothes. That Jacob should feel par tial toward Joseph, perhaps, was un avoidable, but that he should manifest it was xtremely unwise. Serious trouble vrill always result from par tiality being shown toward children. His brethren's intense hatred .. burst forth upon binK This feeling was in tensified by his pure life and byhi.1 testimony among them because of their j evil deeds. .losiah is a type of Christ. He was living in, fellowship wilh his father at Hebron (37:14); Christ was with the Father be fore coming into the world (John 10 :28) ; Joseph was the beloved son (Genesis 37 :3) ; -Christ was the be loved Son of God (Matthew 3:17); Jo seph was hated by his brethren (Gene sis 37:4); Christ was hated by his brethren (John 15:24); Joseph was envied by his brethren (Genesis 37?11) ; Christ was delivered up through envy (Mark 1.1 :1t'). J II. Joseph's Dreams (37:5-11). 1. His brothers' sheaves bowing in j obeisance to his. Thij was rightly interpreted by them to mean their humble obedience to him. This intensified their hatred. 2. The sun, moon and eleven stars rendering obeisance to him. Tlfis dream is wider in its applica- tion. The eleven stars arc identical with the eleven sheaves. The sun urfd moon, as rightly interpreted by his fa ther, represented his father and moth er as rendering obeisance to him. III. Jo&eph Sent by His-Father on a j Mission of Mercy tm His Brethren (v. jl-"1")- j His brethren nad gone to hhechem, j about fifty miles distant from Hebron, whore was abundance of pasture for tbwr Hocks. Jacob btecame anxious , as to their welfare, and sent Joseph, j a young man now seventeen years old. ' to find out their condition. Umle- t erred by the envious hatred of his. brethren, he willingly responded, "Here i I am." No doubt he realizel that bis i mission was fraught with great dan i gors the exposure to highway rob ! bers, wild beasts, and the murderous hatred of his brethren. Notwithstand ing this, he rendered willing obedi ence, cnrist was sent ny me iainer on a missieu of mercy to his brethren (l-johq 4:14; John 1 :11; Phil. 2:7, 8). Though he knew that the envious hatred of his brethren would result in nis suffering and death on the cross IV. Joseph's Reception by His Breth- ren (vv. 18-28). 1. Their murderous plot (vv. 18-22). They said "Behold this dreamer cometh. let us slay him." This is what Christ's brethren. s;iid about him (Matt. 21 : 38). They thought they would prevent these dreams coming true by destroying the dreamer. ben dissuaded them from this act by i proposing to cast him into a pit, In ! tending afterward jh rescue him and restore him to his father, i 2. They strip him of his coat of : many colors and cast him into the pit ; (vv. 23, 24). In spite of his earnest entreaty against this act they perpe- ! trat(lfl his iloartless cruelty (Genesis 42:21). 3. Their feasting (v. 25). Their heartless cruelty Is manifest In that they could enjoy the festivities of a meal, perhaps, within the sight and hearing of Joseph's cries. 4. Sold him to the Ishmaelifes (vv. 25-28). Judah proposed that they sell him, as no gain could accrue from let ting him die in the pit. One Judas, later,-sold the Lord for money. Hav ing done this infamous deed, they sought to cover it up by deceit and ly ing. They too'c his coat of many colors und dipped It in the blood of a kid and sent it to his father, allowing hitn to draw his own conclusions as to the matter. Jacb is now reaping what he had sown. Many years be fore thi- he had deceived his father by trickery and piou lying. Wash Butter Twice. The butter, lu the granular condU tion, should be washed twice with pure wafer at about the same tftn perature as the buttermilk. Keep Milk Cool in Summer. Great care Is required to keep milk cool during pummel where one has no Ice or is not well equipped for han dling milk. I Cool Milk Immediately. As soon as the milk Is drawn4 f rose the eow It should be cooled. -..
