HIS IDEA OF GETTING WORK.
Kind Old Lady—Have you ever
made an effort to get work?
Beggar—Yes, ma'am. Last month I
got work for two members of my fam-
ily, but neither of them would take it
The term "electricity” was derived
from the Greek word meaning amber.
Electricity itself is earliest described
by Theophrastus (321 II. C.i and Pliny
(70 A. D.), who mention the power of
amber to attract straw and dry leaves.
Dr. C-lbert of Colchester, physician to
Queen Elizabeth (1040-1603) may be

philosopher who carefully repeated the

plied to them the principles of philo-
Thankful He Isn’t Rich.
One Adam Croaker is enjoying the
limelight of the following paragraph
“I am thankful I am not a millionaire.
I do not, however, claim any special
credit. It seems to run in the fam-

Croaker family back to the jumping-
on place and find there has not been
a wealthy one in the whole bunch, and

A Too Prevalent Idea.
Senator Beveridge was discussing
the oratorical ability of a number of
stump speakers. Of a rather long-
winded gentleman he said:
"His idea of an orator seems to be a
man who can keep on speaking after
he has finished all he has to say.”
It'* Different Now.

yet she can't speak a word."

Complete Recovery from Coffee lilt.
“About nine years ago my daughter,
from cofTee drinking, was on the verge
of nervous prostration,” writes a Louis-
ville lady. “She was confined for the
most part to her home.
“When she attempted a trip down
town she was often brought home in a
cab and would be prostrated for days
“On the advice of her physician she
gave up coffee and tea, drnnk Postum,
and ate Grape-Nuts for breakfast.
“She liked Postum from the very
beginning and we soon saw improve-
ment. To-day she is in perfect health,
the mother of five children, all of
whom are fond of Postum.
“She has recovered, is a member of
three charity organizations and a club,
holding an office in each. We give
Postum and Grape-Nuts the credit for

Comment and Suggestive Thought.
"With this sermon we must com-
pare St. Peter's other sermons—to the
Jewish people (Acts 3:12-261 and to
the Gentiles (Acts 10:31-43).”—
Peter's object was to prove that
Jesus of Nazareth was their prom-
ised Messiah, whom they were expect-
ing. The reasoning of Peter was con-
clusive and unanswerable. Stated in
brief modern form it was us fol-
1. What has taken place In your
presence Is exactly what your proph-
ets foretold would characterize the
Messianic times for which you are
hoping. Turn to the prophet Joel,
and you will see that both what
has been done to the disciples and
the things you are suffering under the
Roman yoke are the fulfillment of
Joel's picture of the times.
2. Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled the
prophecies concerning the expected
Messiah deliverer, as many of you
have seen and experienced. God in-
dorsed and approved him “by mira-
cles and wonders and signs."
3. Moreover, God reversed your
wicked work by raising him from the
dead, according to your Scriptures. He
is not dead, but living.
4. We are witnesses of the fact of

WHY WELLS WAS WRATHY.
5. Another proof that he is living j
is the gift of the Holy Spirit. “He 1
hath shed forth this which ye now j
see and hear.”
Peter’s hearers were convicted oi
sin and its danger. V. 37. “They were
pricked in their hearts.” The Greek
for prickol means "pricked with a
sharp point intensely, deeply." "For
the word of God is living, and active,
and sharper than any two-edged
sword, and piercing even to the divid-
ing of soul and spirit . . . and quick
to discern the thoughts and intents of
the heart,” for “all things are naked
and laid open before the eyes of him i
with whom we have to do.”—Heb.
"The sense of sin is the plowshare
that opens the soil of the heart for )
the reception of every true grace of j
The Second Duty.—Believing in
Jesus as Master, Messiah, King, Sav-
iour, and Guide—a faith which trusts
the whole life to his guidance and
control. This Is implied in the re-
quirement to lie baptized.
The third duty was to confess Christ
pubi.cly, openly, by baptism; that they
henceforth are his disciples for life
and death. It was like taking an oath
of allegiance when on* becomes a cit-
izen of a country.
This picture of the early church is
so attractive, so beautiful, so ideal,
that some commentators have felt
that it was idealized by late writers,
and was not literally true. But as a
matter of fact, it has been repeated
over and over again for short spaces
of time. Our own eyes have seen it.
V. 44. “All that believed . . . had all
things common.” They were mem-
bers of one family and held things in
common, just as members of a family
do. Everything was for the good of
all. No one, "said that anything was
his own," but all was for the use of
friends and of whatever Christian had

speaking of the Bedouin of the desert,
Bays: "Conducting me to my tent, he

It contains; do what you will with it,
and with us, your servants.’”—Cen-

This was necessary because so
many were strangers and visitors. It
was an emergency.
It was not an instance of what is
now called communion. It was not a
new business enterprise, nor a new
Individuals did not give up all their
property to the church.
It was one expression of an eternal
principle, “that all possessing goods
and Industries are to be consecrated
to God in the service of humanity is
a fundamental Christian principle
(Matt. 25:14-30; Luke 13:6-9), but
neither experience nor Scripture in-
dicates that selling all and dividing lo
the poor Is the best method calculated
to serve humanity, or even the poor.”
“The sacrament of holy communion
has always been recognized as the
central means and test of fellowship
with the church.”—Rackam.

The greatest of all miracles was the
conversion of 3,000 in a day, and the
change made in these men.
God is Btill working his marvels
through his faillifttl disciples. The
influence of Christ's religion is heal-
ing more sick, helping more poor, sav-
ing more life, than he himself had
t'me to do on earth; according to his
own promise in John 14; 12.
Nil Things Considered, He Had Some
Excuse for Anger.
Charles E. Wells, who has been
railed the groundhog senator of West
Virginia, because he once Introduced
a bill advocating the changing of
groundhog day from Februaiy 2 to
July 4. was staying over night at the
Grand hotel of a budding West Vir-
5inia village not long ago.
He was awakened In the morning by
icavy pounding on his door, and the
voice of the old man night clerk say-
ng "Five o'clock! Better get up or
foil'll miss your train.”
Mr. Wells didn't intend to catch a
morning train and hadn't given any
instructions that he should be called
at the unearthly hour of five o'clock,
so he paid no attention to the cld
man’s early morning greeting and was
asleep again almost immediately.
In about 15 minutes he was again
awakened by the pounding on his door
and heard the voice of the old man
saying apologetically; "Don't get up.
I rapped on the wrong door.”—Ltppln-

Itched and Burned Terribly—Could

Cuticura Soon Cured His Eczema.
“An Itching humor covered both my
hands and got up over my wrists and
even up to the elbows. The Itching
and burning were terrible. My hands
got all scaly and when I scratched, the
surface would be covered with blis-
tess and then get raw. The eczema
got so bad that I could not move my
thumbs without deep cracks appearing.
I went to my doctor, but his medicine
could only stop the itching. At night
1 suffered so fearfully that I could not

hands with water. This went on for
three months and I was fairly worn

dies and in a month I was cured. Wal-
