To the wanderer in Italy, Venice has a peculiar attraction. Arrive there at sunset, or, better atlll, by moonlight, and you will fancy yourself trans planted to some city of dreams. With dayllgkt thia feeling may wear off to some extent, although there Is never, at any time, aa much bustle and stir In Venice aa In other towns. Morning, noon or night, Venice has a fascina tion all her own. This la partly due to the fact that she la a city built on tha water. To explore Venice and to become In timately acquainted with her, a gon dola is not a necessity, rather It la a luxury for aunset evenings and moon light nlghta. It ia a delightful ex perience, and not a difficult one, to 1 find one's way about Venice on foot; quaint, old world cornera are discov ered, blta of ancient architecture, carved doorwaya and little bridges, with a feast of color here, there and everywhere. Apart from all th« beauty of scenery, there Is the en thralling Interest evoked by her his tory and traditions. Among the traditions we read that St. Theodore was the first patron ! saint of Venice, to be superseded later | on by St. Mark. The wanderer in ' Venice becomes familiar with th | Lion of St. Mark. More prominently than anywhere Is It to be seen on ont of the columns on the Plazzetta ' whilst on the other Is St. Theodore j These columns of beautiful red and j gray granite are supposed to hav« 1 come originally from Syria. They j were erected by a Lombard engineer —Christian Endeavor Monitor. BABY'S ECZEMA AND BOILS "My son was about three weeks old when I noticed a breaklng-out on hla cheeks, from which a watery aub stance oozed. A short time after, his arma, shoulders and breast broke out ! also, and in a few days became a solid | scab. I became alarmed, and called our family physician who at once pro- | nounced the disease eczema. Tha lit tle fellow was under treatment for j about three months. By the end of that time, he seemed no better. I be came discouraged. I dropped the doo tor'a treatment, and commenced tha use of Cuticura Soap and Ointment, and In a few days noticed a marked change. Tha eruption on his cheeks was almost healed, and his shoulders, arms and breast were decidedly bet ter. When ha was about seven months old, all traca of the eczema was gone. "During hla teething period, hla head and face were broken out In ! boils which I cured with Cuticura Soap and Ointment. Surely he must have been a great sufferer. During ! the tlme.of teething and from the time i I dropped the doctor's treatment, I j used the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, nothing else, and when two years old he was the picture of health. I His complexion was soft and beauti ful, and his head a mass Of silky curia. j I had been afraid that he would never I be well, and I feel that I owe a great deal to the Cutjcura Remedies." (Signed) Mrs. Mary W. Ramsey, 224 E. Jackson St., Colorado Springs, Col., Sept. 24, 1910. Although Cuticura Soap and Ointment are sold by drug gists and dealers everywhere, a sam ple of each, with 32-page book, will be mailed free on application to "Cuti cura," Dept. L, Boston.

FOR JU NE~2~ HYPOCRIBY AND SINCERITY. GOLDEN TEXT—"Take heed that you do not your rlghteouaneaa before men, to be Been of them; else ye have no reward with your Father which la In Heaven."— Matt «:L Someone has called attention to the "buts" of God as recorded In the Scriptures, showing that they always lead to something good and contraata them with those of men that are always the Introduction to some derogatory re* mark. In something resembling thla the words of Jeeus, "Take heed," are tremendous with Import. Doing was the greatest thing In the Jewish religion that Jesus came to set | aside when he eatabllahed his new | kingdom. It la easy for a man to try j to do for himself In order to merit Ood'e favor. It Is hard to let Ood do i for na and we to accept Ma finished j work. In this lesson there 1» one inclu sive word and three Ulustrallona. Thla word la the word "righteousness" sub- I stltuted In the Revised Version for J the word "alms" In verse one. The three hues of application or illustra tions used are, first, that we shall make our righteousness secure by so doing our alms aa not to be seen of men; second, that In the saying of ! our prayers w« shall not, like the hyprocritee, desire to be seen of men, and third, that In the keeping of our fasts and our vigils we do them, not, as do hyprocritee, that the multitude* may observe and comment thereon. In another lesson upon this manl- I festo of Jesus we studied the subject | of the law and In It he summarised it all by telling ua that except our rlghte ousness shall exceed the rlghteouaness | of these Scribes and Pharisees, whom { John the Baptist designated as a gen- I eratlon of vlpera—hypocrites, we ahall In no wlae enter Into this new kingdom which Jesus came to establish. Righteousness He Demands. In the lesson Jetfus shows ua the difference between their rlghteoua ness and the righteousness which he is demanding of the eubject of his kingdom. He demands that our righte* onsneaa ahall seek It* approval not ; from nor among men but of God. The | motive which must govern ia the j glory, not of man but of 6od, not man'a approval but the approval of ! God. In verse two tie word "alms" la retained and hence the flrat lllus ( tratlon has to do with our "doing of I alms" i. e., our relations to men about ns, our right-neaa. The doing of alms | has no fundamental connection with ' any question of honesty between man j and man. The doing of alms accord ing to the strict lnterpietatlon of civil | law la no part of duty. There Is no | reason why the buslnsss man ehould give away his earnings provided he is Just In his dealings abd does not de fraud in hla transactions. Yet we do aee men making great, gifta and bene factlona to the cause ««f philanthropy. Why T Jesus lays bitre the aecret when be says, "that they may have the glory of men." Next Jesus takes up the subject of prayer. Again our attuntlon Is drawn to the fact that the exorcise of prayer haa but little to do with our relations to men. True it Is these relations muat be right befoi*e we can come to God acceptably but prKyer is to be di rected to God and not to man. Apart from our belief In God, why should we pray? Commercial or other inter-rela t ion ships do not require prayer, why then prayT The keen blade of Jesus' logic again reveala tho innermost se cret, "that they may be seen of men," and euch an idea of r.'ghteousness is repugnant in the kingdom of Jesus. We now come to the third illustra tion, the keeping of fasts. Pasting does not and never has appealed to the natural man. Naturally It la re pugnant and dlatasteful and yet we aee men making a show of fasting and imposing a like burden upon others, why? "That they may be aeen of men." Is there, then, no place for, nor ministry in fastini? Certainly there ia. True fasting however, con sista in foregoing and abstaining for the "glory of God." God the Final .ludge. It Is a sad fact that much of our len ten faatlng and of our Abstemiousness upon Fridays Is that it shall be seen of men and not because of any real ap preciation of the underlying need or sense of the principles of faatlng. Thla leason is a great warning that if we condition our righteousness upon the approval of man It will have no re ward whatever of God. The ostentar tioua or unctioua display of phil anthropy will receive its reward from men and weighs naught Followed through thla lesson applies to all the walks of life. For Illustra tion, to adulterate food for gain and yet appear active In church for the upbuilding of a reputation. This false ness is the sin that lies back of graft and corruption and that allows Amer ica to bare "the worst governed cities In the world." It la quite notlcable that there Is not a single personal pronoun in thla model prayer. It begins with God, leads us through his dealings with man and back once more to him to whom all glory belongs.

DOCTORS ADVISED THE HOSPITAL ■ Mrs. Herberger, Who Would Not Consent to Go There, Finally Relieved At Home. St Louis, Mo.—Mrs. Mary Herber ger, of this city, says: "I was sick in bed for ten weeks, wl£h womanly troubles, and had four of the best doctors waiting on me. Every one of them Bald I would have to go to the hospital and have in operation, but I would not consent lo that. I thought I would give Cardul a trial. When I began to take the first bottle, I could not turn over in bed, but had to be lifted. Before I finished the first bottle, my pains were leaving me, slowly, and toon I was out of bed and walking ground. My pains have not come back, ilnce. I weigh 15Q lbs. and feel fine. Cardul saved me from an operation. ( am going to keep it in the house, for I would not be without It." Cardui's strengthening effects quick ly show themselves In many different ways. This is because the ingredi ents, from which It Is made, go to the source of the trouble, and by act ing specifically on the cause, relieve or cure and help bring back health and strength.
