Comment and Suggestive Thought.
The Dark Cloud of Slavery.—Gen
30:1-6. "In tlie anguish of his soul,
Joseph was carried away past his fa
tiler's green \alloy and deep well, past
his mother's grave, past the very
home at Hebron, on the distant
heights."—Tomkins. The lad must
have "tlu-ught, with keen grief, of his
father and Leah and Dinah, in their
dark, shady tents behind those hills,
and of the little red-cheeked, laugh-
ing Benjamin running out and in."—
H(rd. 1 ;’u i yourself in Joseph's
place. The fondling of his father;
with sen ants to wait on his every
wish; and now, lashed to the side of
a wagon :n a slave caravan, and with
the whistling whip of his lshmaelite
owner laid on his shoulder." —Whyte.
The D—k Cloud of Temptation.—
den. JO: 7-12. In Potlphar's house Jo-
seph was exposed to "Hie sorest
temptation that rati befall any one—
to sin and prosper rather than resist
and suffer."—Geikie. Joseph's is "the
history of a man who kept his heart
pure and tender, and who thereby
gained thaJ wisdom which conies only
to the pure in heart."—Charles Kings-
Light from the Cloud.—1. -How
brightly shone Joseph's character in
tin presence of this shameful propos-
al: His answer at once took the
highest ground; (1) recognizing the
fnci that the deed would he a sin
against God. and CM that it would
he base treachery toward his kind
inn Jer. And so he did the best thing
possible, he ran away from the tempt-
ress, though he must leave his
coat in her hands. "It is better to
lose a good coat than a good eon-
The Dark Cloud of Slander.—Gen.
1;M9. On Joseph's refusal of Potl-
phar's wife, "the rapid change in her
feeling illustrates Milton's keen ob-
servation that lust' dwells hat'd by
hate.’ Dods. Her shameless ac-
cusation of Joseph to her husband was
the harder for him to bear because
she accused him with the very sin
that he had refused to commit. This
abominable misrepresentation, to the
master who had trusted him so im-
plicitly, was the darkest cloud that
ever hung over Joseph.
Light from the Cloud.—It is most
striking to see how Joseph, out of
pity for his master, refrained from ac-
cusing the wicked woman. More
men could he found who could thus
have spoken to Potlphar's wife than
who could have kept silent when ao^
cused by Potiphar. For his purity you
will find his equal, one among a thou-
sand: for his mercy, scarcely one."—
The Dark Cloud of Imprisonment.—
V. 20. "And Joseph's master . . . put
him into prison." "That he did not
at once order him to a capital pun-
ishment could only be because he
had not the power of putting slaves
to death."—Blaikie. Or. perhaps Poti-
I bar did not really believe his wife's
accusations. But, at any rate, .lo-
st pit's lot was terrible. Psa. 105:18
speaks of the fetters and chains, en-
f( ring into his (losh. In Gen. 40:1a
Joseph speaks of the prison, literally,
as a "hole.”
The Dark Cloud of Neglect.—Vs.
v ia. V. a. "They dreamed a dream both
of them." “It is not surprising that
three nights before Pharaoh's birth-
d:i\ these functionaries of the court
should have recalled in sleep the
parts they themselves used to play
in the festival."—Expositor's-Bible.
V. S. “There is no Interpreter.” “In
Egypt it was the business' of men
trained for the purpose, called In Gen.
41:8 magicians and wise men, to in-
terpret dreams, and to such the butler
and the baker could have no access
front their prison.”—Hllicott. "Do not
interpretations belong to God?" A
glimpse of Joseph s real humility.
Loyalty to Jehovah in that heathen
land, he made essentially the same re-
ply when asked by Pharaoh to in-
terpret his dream two years later.
Note that "Joseph's willingness to
interpret the dreams of his fellow-
prisoners proves that he still believed
in his own. that among his other qual-
ities he had this characteristic also of
a steadfast and profound soul, that he
'reverenced as a man the dreams of
1 his youth ' "—Dods.
“The ingratitude of the butler, inex-
cusable as it was, left Joseph in the
prison until the moment came when
he would be needed for a work of stu-
pendous importance. While God's pur-
poses were slowly ripening in the
world outside, Joseph's cha-acier also
was ripening into strength and self-
discipline within the dungeon walls."
—.1. R, Miller. If tile cupbearer had
reported Joseph's case to the king
earlier, "it does not seem that Phar-
aoh would have done more for him
than transfer him to some other de-
partment In which he wou'd have been
sill! a slave."--W. M. Taylor.

ranted the Inference.

SPLENDID APRIL TONIC.
Easily Prepared at Home and Harm
less to Use.
This is known as “Blood Cleanim
Time," especially among the older
folks, who always take something dm
ing this month to clean the blood ol
Impurities and build it up.
The following is the recipe as given
by a well-known authority, and any
one can prepare it at home:
Fluid Extract Dandelion one half
ounce, Compound Kargon one ounce
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla three
Get these simple Ingredients from
any good pharmacy and mix by sliak
lng well in a bottle. The dose is one
teaspoonful after meals and at bed
Everybody should take something to
help the blood, which becomes impov-
erished and almost sour after the win-
ter season, especially those who are
subject to Rheumatism, Catarrh, Kid
ney and Bladder trouble.
It Is said that one week's use of this
mixture will clear the skin of sores,
pimples or boils.
This is sound, healthy advice, which
will be appreciated by many readers.

Raymond Hitchcock, the comedian,
while in New Orleans a few months
ago, took the opportunity of going to
the races. During the afternoon ho
cashed several tickets, the result of
good guesses. He was feeling happy
after the last race, anil started for
the automobile which was to convey
him back to his hotel. As he was
about to climb into the machine he
felt a hand on his arm, and a man
shouted in his ear:
Hello, Hitchcock, how are you?
Hear you put a crimp in the bookies
Hitchcock blushed and shook hands
sheepishly, not recognizing the man,
and not wishing to show it.
"Say, I want to speak to you con-
fidentially,-” said the stranger.
"All right; what is it?" asked the
“Well, I am up against some hard
luck to-day. They cleaned me and I
want to get home. Now, don't let
any one of these people see you, but
slip me enough for car fare, will
"Sure," said Hitchcock, placing his
land in his pocket. Then he paused
and queried: "Where do you live?
“Vancouver," ’"as the answer.
Hitchcock took a flying leap tyr his
machine, and unless the visitors at
New Orleans are more gullible, the
Impecunious one is still looking for

The Land Made Famous by Phiipotts'
Phiipotts has made us familiar with
romantic Devonshire, in his fascinating
nov Is, "The River,” “Children of the
Mist," etc. The characters are very
human; the people there drink coffee
with the same n suits as els - where. A
writer at Roek House, Orchard Hill,
Bideford, North Devon, states;
“For 30 years 1 drank coffee for
breakfast and dinner but some 5 years
ago 1 found that it was producing indi-
gestion and heart burn, and was mak-
ing me restless at night. These sviui
toms were followed by brain fag and
a sluggish mental condition.
“When 1 realized this, 1 made up my
mind to quit drinking coffee and
having read of Postum, 1 concluded to
try it. 1 had it carefully made, accord
ing to directions, and found to my
agreeable Eurpi-iso at the end of a
-week, that T no longer suffered from
either indigestion, heart-burn, or brain
fag, and that 1 could drink it at night
and secure restful and refreshing
“Since that time we have entirely
discontinued the use of the old kind of
coffee, growing fonder ami fonder of
Postum as time goes on. My digestive
organs certainly do their work much
better now than before, a result due
to Postum Food Coffee. I am satisfied.
"As a table beverage we find (for all
the members of my family use it) that
when properly made it is most refresh-
ing and agreeable, of delicious flavor
and aroma. Vigilance is, however,
necessary to secure this, for unless the
servants are watched they are likely
to neglect the thorough boiling which
it must have in order to extract the
goodness from the cereal." Name given

Headache is but one of the signs that poisons, clogged up in your system by
a torpid liver, have found their way into your blood. Other symptoms are back-
ache, biliousness, indigestion, rheumatism, malaria, tired feeling, pimples,
blotches, yellow complexion, etc.
The cure is to clean out your clogged liver with the prompt and successful
purely vegetable liver medicine, about which you have so often heard, viz:
Mrs. Dema Harding, of Brlghtwood, lnd., writes: “I had been constipated for many years and suffered
greatly with the headache. The doctor gave me up and said that I would never be any better At last I
began to take Thedtord's Black-Draught which helped me and now i am doing fine." Try it; 25c.
