OOLDEN TEXT—I ®a« glad when tliey
taid unto me. I.el u RO unto tha houie
of the Lord — Psalm 12:1.
This event probably occurred B. C.
1042, ia the twenty-second year of
David's reign. It would be a good
plan to assign to various pupils such
subjects as: (ai What the ark was
and how It came to be lost; (b)
Where it had been since the days of
Joshua; (c) What occurred to it while
Jn possession of the Philistines; <d>
Who was Obed edom? (e) I'zziah? (f)
Mlchal? Ig) How Jerusalem came to
be the seat of government.
I. Th« Ark Recovered, vv. 1-5. David
realized that while liod was the
God of ail the tribes, still there was
no visible religious center; there was
the consequent danger of confound-
ing the local place of worship with
that of some local Haal (god) and the
poBBlbte breaking up of the national
reliance upon Jehovah. Where Klr-
jath-Jearim w'ae is not definitely
known, but perhaps it was eight or
ten iniles west of Jerusalem. The ark
had lodged here for perhaps seventy
>ears. David and tliey that were with
him followed the example of the Phil-
istines (I Sam. 6:118) in their mode
of transferring the ark rather than to
have It carried upon the shoulders of
the priests (Josh 3:3). Preceded by
I)evtd and the house of Israel," i. e„
leaders of the people and all others
present, they began the return jour-
ney from the house of Abinadab.
II. The Ark Retarded, vv. 6-11.
They had reached one of tha op^n
places used as a threshing floor when
the oxen slipped and the cart was
shaken. I'zzlah, one of th^ two into
whose charge it had been placed, laul
hold of the ark to keep it from fall-
lug. Why was he slain therefore? We
have already suggested the reason.
How to carry the ark was plainly writ-
Ian (Num. 4:5-12; 7:S). Neglect of
liod's word gets many well-meaning
people into trouble, along with their
friendB, also. The ark was the sym-
bol of God's presence, and men had
to be taught to revere his holy name
and his glorious presence (see last
clause v. 2). Uziiah's sin was the sin
of irreverence. He seems not to
have sensed the invisible God in his
visible abode. The result struck ter-
ror into the heart of David and the
people, and the ark was left in the
bouse of Obed of Edom for a period
i t three mouths. David's "improved
plan" was a proved failure.
III. The Ark Restored, vv. 9-19.
David, by thus abandoning the ark.
Beems to have resented the judgment
of God, yet he must have realized
that God had sufficient cause for his
acts. The ark is a type of Christ,
who is Immanuel. God with us. The
ark contained the law of God, as
Christ enshrined the w'" ot his F"a'
ther. Over the law was the blood-
sprinkled mercv seat where God met
his people (Ex'. 25:18-22). In Christ
we find our mercy seat where we
meet God. Though this ark brought
Judgment to I'zziah It brought bless-
ing to Obed-edotn (v. 12). Even so
Christ brings judgment or joy accord-
ing to our treatment of him. Obed-
edom so piously eared for the ark that
both he and his household were rich-
ly blessed. If Christ Is really In our
hearts we will be blftBsed, and Christ
IV. The Psalm of Praise, Ps. 24.
In the Jewish sjnagogue this psalm
Is recited at the carrying back of the
book of the law to its shrine, and in
the Greek church at the consecration
of the church. The twenty-second
psalm presents the suffering Savior,
the twenty-third presents the risen
Savior as the shepherd caring for and
leading his sheep, and the twenty-
fourth tells of the reigning, glorified
Lord. The whole earth is Jehnvah s
(v. 1) and no Incident better teaches
the converse, viz., that he is God of
the earth and not a mere tribal deity.
He "founded" and "established it,
and all "the fullness," and they that
dwell therein" are his by creative and
redemptive right. Since we belong
to him we owe him worship and serv-
ice—and a servant is one who
stands" v. 3). The conditions of fel-
lowship with Jehovah are "cluan
hands and a pure heart" (v. 4), those
who deal with honesty and reverence.
"Vanity" and "Idolatry" are frequently
The flrBt and the fourth condition
relate to others, the second and the
third to one's Inner life (see I John
The reward of acceptable worship
and service Is "blessing from the
Lord" (v. 5). In verse eight we find
Israel's great name for God tlrst used
In the Psalms.
He is gloriously strong, this Lord
if the- hosts of heaven.
In I Cor. 2:8, Jesus who was cruci-
Sed Is called the "Lord of Glory." Even
go our coming King is "strong and
Mighty" and will prove himself
•mighty In battle" (see Rev. 19:19-21).

A severe hail storm visited the
southern part of routes 1 and 2 Tues-
day night. On a strip about 8 miles
wide the wheat and oats are consider-
ed almost a total loss but it is be-
lieved the corn will come out again.
On June 1st a change will take
place in the active management of
the Bank of Elgin. On account of
poor health, W. W. Brumskill expects

and will likely spend most of the time
at Medicine Park.
T. Ryan received word today from
C. M. Wolcott at Oklahoma City, who
accompanied the car of stock from
here Tuesday night, that Mr. Ryan s
three year old steer of his own rais-
ing which he shipped in the load
weighed 1380 pounds at the stock
' •ds and brought $8.35 per hundred

Some of the route patrons are
wonderng why their Lawton dailies
do not come regular. They should re-
member that some mornings, the
train, which is now due at 8:58 a. m.
is too late for the carriers to wait for
it, then if the train is on time the
next morning, the route patrons get
two Lawton dailies in one day.
First of all
put one right over the fence and score
for yours truly via Prince Albert, tobacco
that made three men smoke a pipe today
where one smoked before, and put new
notions into men who know what a real
makin's cigarette can taste like!
Why, to fire up a jimmy pipe packed
with P. A. or to pull on a P. A. makin's
cigarette is just about, just about! Never
was such tobacco, because no other to-
bacco can be made like
the national joy smoke
Sooner or later you'll go to this wonder-
smoke as little apples grow on trees. Just
can't help it, like! P. A. is so good and
true, such chummy tobacco, that men
just go happy about it. You get it into
your system without losing any more
time that you'll strike 18 kt. gold just as
soon as you fire up a jimmy pipe or roll
up a makin's cigarette with P. A.
Also, get these few remarks: Prince
Albert is produced by a patented process
that cuts out the bite and the parch.
Prove that at the cost of a dime before
you do the next thing!
Also, nail this: Just you be game enough
to lay a dime against a tidy red tin—and
cheer-up your smokappetite!

When you come down town at night to do a little shopping you
will invariably do your buying in the stores that are best lighted.
You go into these places because they are more attractive than the
places that are poorly lighted.
The same is true of your home. It is much more attractive if
properly lighted. The best light for your home is electricity. It is
clear, does not heat the house, not dangerous, and takes very little
care. For lights, electricity costs very little.
