INIUMONAL SUNMSOIOOL LESSON ,By 8. O. SELLERS, Director of Evening Department, The Moody Bible Institute, Chlctio.) LESSON FOR JULY 6 CHILD MOSES SAVED FROM DEATH. LEBBON TEXT—Ex. 1:8 to 2:10. GOLDEN TEXT—"Whoso shall receive one such little child In my name receiv sth me.' Matt. 18:(. The prosperous favor of the king's court did not last long for the de scendants of Jacob, and a Pharaoh arose "who knew not Joseph" (1:8). In chapter 1:7 we see that Israel was (a) "fruitful," (b) "increased in num bers," and (c) "exceeding mighty." This was In fulfillment of God's prom ised blessing (Gen. 12:2, 3). It ex cited the envy of the Egyptians, how ever, and they began to "deal wisely" (v. 10), see I Cor. 1:19, and eventual ly Pharaoh promulgated his iniquitous decree recorded In Ch. 1:16-21. Child Unherslded. I. The Child Born, Ch. 2:1, 2. Pha raoh's cruel scheme seemej -well adapted to avoid the supposed danger in that it would cripple Israel, keep them in slavery and effectually pre vent them from escaping from Egypt. How frequently man is deceived. A babe is born In (he home of the rich or the great of earth and we speculate upon the possible ensuing changes In history, whereas at that same time another child is born unheralded In some humble home that Qod raises up to set aside the schemes of men. Attention has been called to the hum ble marriage (v. 1) of Amram and Jochebed (ch. 6:20) and the import ant outcome. No marriage is trivial- It does not appear that to cast the male children into the river was an edict when Aaron was born. Though humbly born Moses was nobly born and his parents thought more of their duty to God than the edicts of man. Moses was a "godly child" (v. 2, Acts 7:20 R. V. marg. and Heb. 11:23 R. V.). That is, he was without blemish, well pleasing to the eye, "fair to Qod." His parents must have entertained the hope that he was to be the deliv erer of Israel and taught him ao to believe, see Acts 7:25. 11. The Child In Danger, w. 3-6. At three months of age (Acts 7:20) It waa no longer poaalble to hide the child Moses. However,.lnstead of his being cast Into the river he is cast upon the river. Jochebed knew of the dellvera _e of Noah and it Is prob able that her meditation upon this suggested to her the adopted plan, for she made her ark somewhat after the lan Noah followed, Oen. 6:14. She also knew of the habits of Pha rack's daughter and planned accord ingly. It was a perilous risk to com mit ker child to the crocodile Infested river, but she trusted Jehovah (Heb. 11:33) and Qod honored her faith, as events demonstrate. Qod's Plan. ft iHmi a trivial incident tor this daughter of a king to indulge In • bath and to find this rude pitch cov ered ark at the river's brink. Yet ■who can comprehend His ways? She went one of her servants to investi- Bate. Seeing so many strange faces the child begins to cry; how very ordinary, yet how wonderful when considered as a part of God's plan Cor the redemption of a race. 111. The Child Delivered, w. 7-10. From the monuments of Egypt we are able to atudy Pharaoh and his court. Hia word was supreme. At this op portune moment under God's direc tion, the cry of a child is used to set aside Pharaoh's word and to tarn the course of history. The tears of the babe found their way into the heart of this princess of the royal house and thus the deliverer came from the sys tem from which be was to set his brethren free. God knew that among those frivolous Egyptian slaves there was none properly fitted to care for His own. So it is that the waiting sister offered to secure a Hebrew woman to care for the child, perhaps accord ing to a pre-arranged plan with her mother. The plan is successful and the very best nurse possible was se cured. The only nurse properly fitted and Ood-endowed for the rearing of a child is its own mother. Perhaps it was Pharaoh's infamous decree that led hia daughter to send her new found treasure away with a Hebrew mmas with the promise of wages (▼. 9). At any rate, Pharaoh is set at naught in his own household and hli edict worked a blessing to Jochebed. It was most certainly during these plastic years that Moses was !nstruct ed concerning Ood, Abraham and Isaac and God's covenant to these the fathers of his race, and to look for ward for Him who should deliver Israel. See Acts 7:25 and Heb. 11:24- 26. God providentially separated the Israelites from intermarriage with the Egyptians, a fact which saved them from deterioration and effeminacy. The absolute Impossibility, humanly speaking, of their deliverance enabled God to end their affliction and de liver to them His promised Inheri tance. The hour has now arrived for deliverance, all that 1* needed Is a leader and In His own way He is pre paring that leader. Moses was neith er killed nor enslaved. The venture some faith of Moses* parents In spits of all appearances preserved the Uto of their babe.

(By W. ROBINSON.) I have always used large, full feath ered hens for hatchings, only allowing the geese to sit on the last eggs of the season. A good broody hen will steadily sit the 30 days occupied In the incubation of these eggs. If she be given no more than four eggs and they are set in an earth nest and turned once dally they should In almost every case produce vigorous goslings if the parent birds are healthy and well matured. Some people find a difficulty during the early days of raising in the ten dency of the birds to fall upon their backs and an inability to right them selves without assistant, necessitat ing combined watchfulness or loss. This, however, is a nuisance that may be avoided by the use of the eggs of mature, sound stock only, the weakness being absent in the progeny of old birds in good breeding condi tion. The actual rearing presents no diffi culties to one qualified in poultry raising. Long brooding is unnecessary and an ordinary hen coop is sufficient to accommodate three or four goslings and a hen as long as it is necessary to leave the latter in charge, but dur ing the first dayß the gosling's run, which should be on short graas, should be limited. The best diet Is a simple one and for the first few days I have found nothing better than stale bread well aoaked and squeezed moderately dry and mixed with a liberal allowance of dandelion leaves, well chopped and free from stringy pieces. Biscuit meal may be used instead of the stale bread but It Is more expensive and the re sults are no better. By the middle of the first week ground oats should take the place of the bread, mixed with a sufficient quantity of grit to make the mixture crumbly, the dandelions being com bined. The green food may be gradually reduced and finally abandoned when the young birds are grazing freely. They abould commence grazing at about a week old. Upon a good grazing ground and with a sufficient supply of soft food mixture, of which ground oats should be the staple Ingredient, goslings will progress rapidly.

The inside is kept warm by filling a jug with boiling water and setting it within, changing the wa ter both morning and night. When the temperature outside Is ten de grees the Interior can be kept at 90 or 100 degrees, but the Jug must be refilled with boiling water at least twice a day.—Popular Mechanics. Color. Color is largely a matter of breed. The color character In eggs has no relation whatsoever to their food value. An egg with a white shell doee not differ in composition from one with with a brown shell. Eggs of the Mediterranean breeds are white, while those of the Asiatic breeds are brown. In general the eggs of the American breeds are also brown, but are rarely as uniform In color as tbe other two classes. Uniformity In color regard less of whether eggs are white or brown should be sought for by the poultryman. A good appearance to a crate of eggs is procured only when uniformity In sise, shape and color is present Water Essential. Clean, fresh water is one of the most essentials that we can think of for the healthy fowls. As the greater portion of the egg is water, they should be supplied with a libera) sup ply at all times. It should be placed in such a way that It will be within easy aooeos. '• Wmsi. "• - • >' ■ • . • BROKE HORSE OF BAD HABIT Bag of Band. Something Like a "Punch ing Bag," Did the Bualneta Quite Simply. Noah Spears, a Bay Shore farmer, haa discovered a way to break a horse of kicking, according to a Mllford let tor to the Wilmington (Del.) fJews. Spears tella the following story: "I filled a stout gunny sack with sand and suspended It from the celling in the rear of the stall by a rope in such a position behind the horse that its heels could have good play upon it. This large pendulum, needing only a strong power to start it, would swing with clocklike precision as soon as the horse began to play its acrobatic stunts upon it At the first kick the bag swung away, only to return with more force, giving the animal much more than U had sent. This unexpect ed return on the part of the bag caused the horse to kick harder, but each time the bag returned harder and paid the animal with Interest. Finally the horse, realising that further kicking would be fruitless, stopped kicking. The bag was allowed to hang in the same position for an entire week, but no more use for it was seen." FACE DISFIGURED WITH SKIN TROUBLE 8107 Foster Ave., Baltimore, Md.— "About five months ago little blisters j appeared on my face. They looked j like blisters from lire burns. They ! itched and burned something terrible, ! which caused me to rub them and they j burst, then sores appeared which dis figured my face. My face was all full of sores. The disease spread from my face to my neck and back. When any thing touched them they would burn and stick to my clothes, which kept ine from sleeping and made me suf fer terribly. "I used home remedies and I used j a salve but it did no good. I suffered ■ about three months then I saw the Cuticura Sor.p and Ointment adver-1 Used and I thought 1 would send and , get a sample and try them.

"t wish I was a star," the dude sighed, smiling at his own poetic fancy. "I would rather you were a comet," she said, dreamily. His heart beat tremulously. "And why?" he asked, tenderly, at the same time taking her unresisting little hand in his own. "And why?" he repeated, imperiously. "Oh," she said, with a brooding earnestness that fell freezing upon his soul, "because then you would come around only once In fifteen years." And he took his hat and went out into the shimmering moonlight. Anticipating. "Say, Lawson, let me use your phone, will you?" "Certalnly. What's the matter with yours?" "It's all right I want to telephone to my wife that I'm going to bring a man to dinner. He's In my room now and I hate to have him watch my face when my wife tells me what she thinks of the proposition." Between Devil and Deep Sea.
