The Commandments Are Divine
Laws.—V. 1. "And God spake all
j these words,” In three ways: (1) by
his voice; (2) by writing them on the
[tablets of stone; and (3) he has writ-
ten them on tlio very nature of man.
We aro not to imagine that nothing'
|of these commands was known before
'Moses. They were written on tho
hearts and consciences of men from
,tho beginning. Wo see them in the
’early 1 Jntory. They are a lesson for
,all maukl:: I.

ence,” and therefore "In preference to

The First Henson is that all Images

The Second Reason. V. 5. "I . . .
am s Jealous God,” 1. e„ not willing
ithnt any other should he regarded as
'his equal, or take his place in the af-
fections nnd worship of hls people;
because no other can take his place;
no other can love as he lovos, or help
as he helps. Every Idol god Is not
only useless, but leads to Immortality.
The Third Reason. "Visiting the
iniquity of tho fathers upon the chil-
dren.” The visitation here spoken of
enn hardly be ntiy other than that
which wo are accustomed to witness
In the common experience of life (Ex.
34:7; Jer. 32: IS). It. Is a s'atement
of tho scientific doctrine of heredity.
V. 7. "Thou shalt not take tho name
of the Lord thy God In vain,” 1. e„

God's people, In covenant relations
with him, and then acting In a man-
ner that dishonors God and misrepre-

graces religion, and drives men from

called taking nn oath In court; for
that is a simple affirmation In the sol-
emn presence of God to tell the truth,

It. The way tins, oaths are some-
times administered borders very close-

V. S. "Remember the . . P.r.th day.”

already existed. "To keep it holy.”
Possibly we talk too much about wlmt
not to do on the Sabbath. Here ts the
great thing to do; worship; keep the
day sacred for religious duties and
Inspiration, the culture of the soul of
yourself and of others.
The Covenant i>? Love.
"In the Old Testament there are
four covenants: that with Noah, of
which the rainbow was the sign, prom-
ising safety from destruction to all
mankind; that with Abraham, of
which circumcision was thu sign;
that with Israel as a nation, of which
the sign was the Passover; and that
of which the Sabbath was the sigu
for all mankind. The record of tho
Mosaic Law ts called ‘the book of the
covenant’ .(Ex. 24:7). But the main
covenants between God aud man are
two—the Mosaic and the Christian,
the I-aw aud the Gospel."—Farrar,

HAPPENED AT BAD TIME.
EATHINC IN THE DEAD SEA.
By No Means a Pleasure, According
to One Traveler.
“No sooner has one plunged into
the water than one is whipped off
one's feet and goes bobbing helplessly
about like a wretched cork,” says Rev.
Haskett Smith of bathing in the Dead
s, a "in the effort to regain one's
footing and to gel hack to shore, one s
feet and shins an* harked by the
Ja ged stones and pebbles, and when
at length one docs emerge ftont Its
treacherous bosom, with the lower
limbs bleeding and torn, one becomes
aware of a horrible tingling and burn-
ing sensation in eyes, ears, nostr is,
mouth and almost every pore of the
skin, from the* brine and bitumen
which have penetrated everywhere.
“Unless great care is taken the
bather In the Dead sea is liable to an
eruption, which breaks out all over
hls body, and which Is commonly
known as the ‘Dead sea rash.' The
best antidote to this ts to hurry across
as quickly as possible to the river Jor-
dan and take a second plunge therein.
The soft and muddy waters of that
sacred but dirty stream will effectual-
ly remove the salt that lias Incrusted
Targets for Anglers.
Not long ago several wood disks,
one foot In diantoter, painted white,
and each provided with a line and a
lead weight, were placed In the pool
In Central park this city, by
the Anglers' club, for targets for fly
and bait-casting. As a granitoid walk
adjoins the eastern etui of tho pool,
and the targets furthest from the
casting platform are near this walk,
thousands of park visitors worry the
lives out of the policemen and park
empleyss with questions relative to
the purpose of the white disks. 'I hey i

New In Wall Paper.
A new design In fancy wall paper
patterns comes from Kansas City;
also a way to utilize cancelled checks.
A firm has had all Its offices papered
with old checks, placed neatly edge
to edge. The face figures of the
checks vary from $30,000 to $1,000,
and the total for one room Is $S,000,-
000. As a gilt moulding runs around
the edges of each check-panel, the
general effect Is rather pleasing.

ing towns of Pennsylvania was a pul-
pit bolh antique and unique. It was
about the size aud shape of a flour
barrel, was elevated from the floor
about four feet and was fastened to
the wall. The ascent was by narrow
A minister from a neighboring town,
a man of great vigor and vehemence,
preached there one Sunday. While
preaching he bent forward and shout-
ed out with great force the words of
"The righteous shall stand, but the
wicked shall fall.”
Just as these words escaped from
Ids'lips, the pulpit broke from Its
fa lening. and he fell out and rolled
over on the floor before his congre-
gation. In an Instant he was on his
feet again and said:
"Brethren. 1 am not hurt, and 1
don't mind the fall much, but I do
hate the connection."
ELEVEN YEARS OF ECZEMA.
Hards Cracked and Bleeding—Nail
CcnieOff of Finger—Cuticura Rem-
edies Brought Prompt Relief.
"I had eczema on my hands for
about eleven years. The hands crack-
ed open in many places and hied. One
of my Ungers was so had that the nail
came off. I had tried so many rem-
edies, and they all had failed to cure
me. 1 had seen three doctors, but got

V NTA1TT MORTALITY is something frightful. We can hardly realize that of
| all the children born in civilized countries, twentytwo per cent., or nearly
ono-quarter, die before they reach one year; thirtyseven per cent, or more
than one-third, before they are five, and one-half before they are fifteen I
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save a ma-
jority of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these
infantile deaths aro occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinctures
and soothing syrups sold for children’s complaints contain more or less opium, or
morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity
they stupefy, retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, death. Castoria
operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it hears tho signature of
Chas. E. Fletcher. Castoria causes tho blood to circulate properly, opens the
pores of the skin and allays fever.

no relief. Finally I got a cake of Cuti-
cura Soap, a box of Cuticura Ointment
and two bottles of Cuticura Resolvent
Pills. Of course I keep Cuticura Soap
all the time for my hands, but the one
cake of Soap and half a box of Cuti-
cura Ointment cured them. I recom-
mend the Cuticura Remedies to all

Dramatist's Plans for Future.

poet-dramatist, has purchased the es-
tate of Karerlake, in Tyrol, and ex-
perts to erect a castle and live there
most of the year. He Is now at work
on a new drama to be presented In
Vienna, at the Burg theater, next sea.

Dr. E. Down, of Philadelphia, Pa„ says: “I have prescribed your Cas-
toria in my practice for many years with great satisfaction to myself and
benefit to my patients.”
Dr. Edward Tarrish, of Brooklyn, N. V., says: “I have used your Cas-
toria in my own household with good results, and have advised several
patients t* use it for its mild laxative effect and freedom from harm.”
Dr. J. B. Elliott, of New York City, says: "Having during the past six
years prescribed youi Castoria for infantile stomach disorders, I most
heartily commend its use. The formula contains nothing deleterious
to tho most delicate of children.”
Dr. C. G. Sprague, of Omaha, Neb., says: ‘Tour Castoria is an ideal
medicine for children, and I frequently prescribe it. While I do not advo-
cate tho Indiscriminate use of proprietary medicines, yet Castoria is an
exception for conditions which arise in the care of children.”
Dr. J. A. Parker, of Kansas City, Mo., says: “Your Castoria holds the
esteem of the medical profession in a manner held by no other proprie-
tary preparation. It is a suro and reliable medicine for infants and chil-
dren. In fact, it is tho universal household remedy for infantile ailments.”
Dr. II. F. Merrill, of Augusta, Me., says: "Castoria is one of the very
finest and most remarkable remedies for infants and children. In my
opinion your Castoria has saved thousands from an early grave. I can
furnish hundreds of testimonials from this locality as to it3 efficiency
Dr. Normsr. IT. Coer, of Cleveland, Ohio, says: "During the last twelve
years I have frequently recommended your Castoria as one of the best
preparations of tho kind, being safe in the hands of parents and very ef-
fective in relievirg children’s disorders, while the ease with which such
a pleasant preparation can bo administered is a great advantage.”

Simms, La., May 22, ’07.
My wife suffered for seven years with Liver Com-
plaint, Indigestion and Constipation. I have paid up
to date one thousand dollars to doctors for services
but she never received any benefit. I always bought
my medicine from Jordan Bros., of Alexandria. La.
I spoke to Mr. Jordan one day about my wife's com-
plaint, and he recommended Mozley's Lemon Elixir
for her. I took a bottle home with me and since that
time, about three months ago, I have kept it in the
house aud from the first day my wife took it, her
bowels have acted regular, her health has improved
ar.d she can do her house work without the pains she
formerly suffered. I was in Alexandria yesterday,
May 21, and told Dr. F. N. Brian, one of tho best
physicians in Alexandria, what my wife had been
taking, and he gave it the highest praise. Mr. Jor-
dan also told me his wife was using Lemon Elixir
with great benefit. Yours respectfully,
