Thr Importance that Attaches to th«i Car*

Miss Mamie Conway has a complexion
vhich is the admiration of all who kuow
her. Asked if sho conld make any sug-
gestions that would be helpful to others
less fortunate, she said :
•*My complexiou would not have
pleased you, if you had seen it two years
ago. It was then about as bad as it
could be, and it gave me a great deal of
dissatisfaction. If you want a good
complexion you must take care of your
health, especially of the condition of
your blood. My health was at that time
completely broken down. I was nervous,
had frequent headaches, a torpid liver
and a great deal of paiu in that region.
I suffered alse from indigestion. It was
clear that my blood was iu bad condition,
lor pimples broke out all over my face."
«It is hard to realize that, for there
isn't the slightest traco of such blem-
"It was unfortunately quite other-
wise then, and along time passed before
I found auything that gave me any re-
lief. I became very weak and listless.
The doctor's medicine did me no good,
and I took a number of highly recom-
mended tonics with no better result.
As soon, however, as I began to use Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People my
complexiou cleared up, and after I had
taken two boxes there was not a sign of
a pimple left on my face. My cheek*
became rosy, I gained flesh and have had
perfect health ever siuce." '
Rosy cheeks and sparkling eyes arc
merely signs of healthy blood. They havi

WAR ON GAMBLING
I Habit of Filing Complaints Gets At-
I torney General Before Department
WASHINGTON: The chief of the
appointment division in the interior
department has admitted that
charges have been filed against At-
torney General Simons of Oklahoma,
rumors of which were current sev-
eral days ago. The nature of the
charges were no* made public, but It
is sad they are not of a serous na-
Vice Is Becoming Less Privileged In
All Parta of the Country
The war waged on gambling In
many other cities Is a sign of the
times, and a mighty cheering one.
There are a few misguided folks
who insist that a city can only prosper
with the "lid off;" that visitors to a
great city naturally expect to find a
good deal of relaxation, and that they
seek the place where there is the
greatest opportunity for a "good
time." That is nonsense. It is also
a reflection on humanity.
Why should the opportunity for a
stranger to lose his money be con-
sidered a municipal asset? The truth
of the matter is that from one end of
the country to the other vice Is be-
coming all the time less privileged.
Those who are wise do not expect per-
fection. They realize that where peo-
ple are herded together there is bound
to be somo Immorality, and they do
not expect or demand blue laws or
But they do expect the enforcement
of sane laws, the punishment of
those who do wrong, and. as far as
Is possible, the betterment of man-
The official who Is strong enough
and courageous enough to do his duty
finds more backing from the public
than he ever had before, and there Is
less maudlin sympathy for those who
disobey the laws than there has been
In New York there Is almost con-
stant warfare on vice. The foul thing
that contaminated the police force
and made a great city noted for sin
has been compelled to fight for its
very existence for years, and the fight
gains strength as It progresses. The
crooks and gamblers and bribers have
suffered, while the great city has
grown greater and prospered more
than at any time in its history.
To say that a eity must be bad in
order to grow and flourish is the
veriest nonsense. — Kansas City

Quick Cure of Rheumatism by Dodd's
Kidney Pills. How They Saved the
Shop of a Kansas Blacksmith—Cure

Goodland, Kan., Feb. 20th.—(Spe-

This lesson can be made vivid by |
causing the events to pass before the
scholars as scenes In a moving pan-
Scene I. Jesus leaving Galilee for
Philip's Kingdom Beyond Jordan.—V.
1; Matt. 14:1-3, 13; Mark 6:30, 31;
Luke 9:7-10. 1. "Aftqr these things."
How long the Interval between John
5, our last lesson, and John 6, depends
on the feast alluded to in John 5:1.
"If it was Purlm, only a month had
elapsed; If it was Passover, a year."
"Jesus went over the Sea of Galllea."
Scene II. The Gathering Multi-
tudes.—Vs. 2-5. 2. "And a great mul-
titude followed him." The multitudes
came from two sources. (1) The mul-
titudes of Capernaum and the other
villages on the Galilean shore of the
lake, restless and excited by the po-
litical atmosphere, followed him be-
cause they "saw his miracles (R. V.,
"the signs") which he did on them
that were diseased."
2. The second source of the multi-
tudes is shown in v. 5 when Jesus
"saw a great company come unto
him," "not the same crowd as was
mentioned in v. 2, else the article
would have been Inserted, but a Pass-
lover caravan coming from some oth-
er direction." (Expositor's Greek Tes-
tament), perhaps from the roads east
,of the Jordan and the lake, on their
way to Jerusalem.
Scene III. A Day with Jesus.—V.
3; Matt. 14:14; Mark 6:34; Luke 9:
•11. "Jesus went up into a mountain."
The mountain that rises from the plain
back from the lake. He and his dis-
ciples came Into this region before the
crowds could reach the plain by the
long road around the shore. It is
probable that Jesus also called his
di&ciples apart from the multitudes
In the afternoon, after his busy work
for the people." "And there he sat
jwlth his disciples." Here in seclusion
they could rest, and report more fully
(what they had done on the evangeiiz-
'ing tour from which they had just re-
turned; could talk over '.heir plans,
,their successes, their mistakes and
receive the instruction they would
'soon need as to the true way of
preaching the gospel to the world, and
las to the gospel they should preach.
Scene IV. The Hungering Multi-
tudes.—V. 5. "When Jesus then lifted
.up his eyes." On the mountain side
where he was talking with his dis-
ciples. "And saw a great company
•come." Apparently another one in
addition to those who had come from
Capernaum and vicinity. These would
add greatly to the number. The day
* was "wearing away," and was "far
tpent" (Matt., Mark, Luke). In this
ninhabited place there was no op-
portunity to buy provisions. Many
bad come unsupplied, either in their
haste, op because they did not know
that Jesus was going into a desert
place, or that they would remain so
jloug. The need was therefore great
and real, though in their enthusiasm
tftey may not have realized it till
A lite late.
Scene V. Jesus and His Disciples
Considering the Situation.—Vs. 5-9.
Jesus "saith unto Philip." Why was
Philip the one singled out from the
disciples for this purpose? In v. 6 it
is stated that 'he said this to prove
him," to test him, not for counsel or
advice. Jesus was in no perplexity.
"It was not bread he sought from
iPhillp, but faith," say& Augustine. It
Jwas to lead him and the other dis-
ciples to understand Jesus better and
•to trust him more. The process of
jtesting both showed him himself, and
then strengthened the good.
Jesus (speaking to Philip, whose
home was at Bethsaida, and who,
therefore, was acquainted with the
region and the people). "Whence shall
we buy bread that these may eat?"
Philip. "Two hundred pennyworth
($32.00) of bread is not sufficient for
them, that every one of them may
take a little" (John).
The Apostles. "Send the multitude
away, that they may go into the towns
and country round about, and lodge
and get victuals" (Luke).
Jesus. "Give them to eat" (Luke).
The Apostles. "Shall we go and
buy two hundred pennyworth of
bread, and give them to eat?" (Mark).
Jesus. "How many loaves have ye?
go and see" (Mark).
Andrew. "There is a lad here,
which hath five barley loaves and twq
9. "Five barley loaves." Or round,
flat cakes like large crackers. Barley
was the poorest food of the people.
The lad probably brought them for his
own lunch, possibly to find a market
for them. "Two small fishes."
Scene VI. Feeding of the Multi-
tudes by the Miraculous Power of
Jesus.—Vs. 10, 11. 10. "Make the
men sit down." For three reasons: (1)
That there might be no unseemly
crowding, with the disasters and
Crushing of the weak, which would
Naturally follow a rush; (2) "that
they might understand they were to
have a full meal and not a mere bite
they could take In their hand in pass-
ing" (Exp. Greek Test.); (3) for the
convenience of distribution, so that
jiione should be overlooked. "Now
there was much grass in the place."
The grass was luxuriant at this time.
11. "Jesus took the loaves," which
were in the form of thin cakes or
crackers. "Given thanks." In Mark
Widows are a rather cbolco viol
age charged with gas.
Dr. J. Marty, a French crimonolo
gist, has recently made an examin
ation of 4,000 delinquent soldiers of
the French urmyt and has found that
In height, weight, breast measure,
muscular power and general condition
they average much better than the
well behaved soldiers. Dr. Marty
does not imply that criminals aru by
nature better physically than non-
criminals, but suggests that the con-
dition of criminal families is so much
more wretched than respcctoblo ones
that only the uncommonly strong sur-
the Greek word means "praised, cele
brated with praise."" Hutchison sayi
that "the well known formula familiar
to every Jewish household is "Bless
ed art thou, Jehovah our God, king ol
the world, who causeth to come forth
bread from the earth.'"
"As much as they would." No one
went away hungry. So ever with
God's gospel; there is enough for all
and to spare. No one need imagine
that others will have to go without be-
cause he receives all he needs. We
have no analogy for such a miracle as
this. The making of bread cannot be
the hastening of a natural process, as
wine from the Juice In a growing clus-
ter of grapes. But here, as In all
Christ's miracles, the miracle is based
on the natural, and not separated
from the powers of God working all
around us. The same God works In
both ways. "Natural means, laws and
powers go Just as far as is possible
for them, and then the supernatural
comes in and does what they cannot
Scene VII. Gathering Up the Frag-
ments.—Vs. 12-14. 12. "Gather up
the fragments." R. V. "Broken pieces."
13. "Filled twelve baskets." The
wallets or hand baskets of the twelve
apostles, such as Jews usually carried
on their journeys.
"This was for these Orientals a
most important lesson in thrift. The
poor are proverbially thriftless every-
where; but nothing could exceed the
lavish wastefulness of the poor Ori-
ental when a moment of good fortune
has filled his hands with plenty. He
absolutely takes no thought for the
morrow, and, if reminded of the com-
ing day, will calmly reply, 'The Lord
will provide.'"—Rev. Wm. Ewing.
"We do not find that the owner of
Fortunatus' purse is careful against
extravagance." This is true spiritual-
ly as well.
Let nothing be wasted or lost in
God's work. Using well or wasting
the fragments of time, of opportunity,
the ^ooks and corners of life, makes
ail the difference between success and
The effect of this miracle was to
convince the people that Jesus was
(v. 14) "that prophet that should come
Into the world," the expected Mes-
siah and deliverer; and they tried to
make him a worldly king, and compel
him to fulfil their ideas of what the
Messiah should be. Where else would
they find a king who could feed his
army without expense or trouble, who
could cure his wounded soldiers by a
word, who had wisdom and power di-
vine? Such a king could easily over-
come the Roman power. Jesus resist-
ed the temptation, and spent the night
in prayer. For such a kingdom as
they expected was necessarily a fail-
ure. The next day at Capernaum he
met many of these people and taught
them about the Bread of Life.
The Heart of the Lesson.
The sign, that Jesus is the Bread
The witness to the power of Jesus
to satisfy every hunger of the soul.
Jesus Is the source of spiritual life
through his gift of the Holy Spirit-
He raises men from the death of
worldiness and sin to eternal life, the
same life as saints and angels have
in heaven. His coming, his life, his
death, his resurrection and his abiding
presence, are all means to this life.
Jesus is the bread of life because
he fulfills for the soul another func-
tion of food for the body, which is to
generate warmth, vitality, energy,
"I live," says Paul, "and yet no long-
er I, but Christ llveth in me." See
Gal. 2:20; Col. 2:19.
It is often hard to translate into
the terms of common life the state-
ments of Jesus that he is the bread
of life, and what is meant by eating
that bread. We gain some hint of the
meaning from the power certain peo-
ple have to inspire, awaken, and up-
lift us. "No nobler feeling," says Car-
lyle, "than admiration for one higher
than himself dwells in the breast of
man. It is to this hour, and at all
hours, the vivifying influence in man's
life. . . . Does not every true man
feel that he is himself made higher
by doing reverence to what is really
above him?" It has been said that
the teacher is the school, and the
preacher is the most powerful ele-
ment in his sermon. The character
of the parents is the greatest power
for the character of the child. Presi-
dent Hadley, of Yale, says In a late
article, "All the moral precepts which
aro taught, even by those great head
masters who have the greatest repu-
tation as moral teachers, are of little
consequence as compared with the
personality of those teachers them-
selves. ... I have seen boys and
men who were selfish in all their im-
pulses, who, nevertheless, responded
to the teaching of ideals in the school
or college, as they responded to noth-
Now from these and similar state-
ments familiar to educators, it Is
easy to see that "eating Christ" is
coming into close contact with his
heart and character, by studying him,
by loving him, by keeping in sympathy
with him, by working with him for his
cause. Character makes character.
"The most Influential thing in the
world," says Prof. Whitney, "is, we
suppose, what men see in other peo-
The Automobile In War.
The first war automobile to be used
under actual service conditions will
shortly be sent by the Russian mili-
tary authorities to Manchuria, where
It will be used to transport war ma-
terials and provisions. It consists of
a thirty-six horse power French car,
upon which a large dynamo has been
placed, which furnishes the power to
the electric motors of five trailers.
Each of these can carry a load of
1,760 pounds, and the train can be
driven at a rate of speed averaging
ten miles oer hour.
Bishop Defends Subway Saloon.
Bishop Potter of New York declines
to acknowledge for a moment that he
made a mistake in dedicating the sub-
way saloon. "We have begun In the
right way," he insists, "with a place
where a person can drink like an hon-
est man and not adulterated liquor.
Since the institution was established
three saloons in the neighborhood
have been compelled to go out of busi-
ness, and I contend that things have
Improved when one such place as the
subway saloon displaces three such as
have closed up."
Half This Man's Sufferings Would
Have Killed Many a Person, but
Doan's Cured Him.
A. C. Sprague, stock dealer, of Nor-
mal, 111., writes: "For two whole years
! was doing nothing but buying medi-
cines to cur®
my kidneys. I
do not think
that any man
ever suffered as
^ I did and lived.
^ The pain in my
back was so
bad that I could
not sleep at
night. I could
a. c. spbaule. not ride a horse
ind sometimes was unable even to ride
In a car. My condition was critical
when I sent for Doan's Kidney Pills.
I used three boxes and they cured me.
Now I can go anywhere and do as
much as anybody. I sleep well and
feel no discomfort at all."

Invents, in his practice, some special

well's (laxative) Syrup Pepsin. For
years, prescribed by Dr. W B. Cald-
well for constipation, and all disorders

Probably what made Eve take on

Every housekeeper should know
that if they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch for laundry use they
will save not only time, because it
never sticks to the iron, but because
each package contains 16 oz.—one full
pound—while all other Cold Water
Starches are put up in %-pound pack-
ages, and the price is the same, 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
Starch Is free from all Injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you a
12-oz. package It Is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before he puts in Defiance.
He knows that Defiance Starch has
printed on every package In large let-
ters and figures "16 ozs." Demand
Defiance and save much time and
money and the annoyance of the iron
■ticking. Defiance never sticks.
The visitor paused beside the hu-

tunny side of ray own jokes."

Gas Illuminated Cavern.
Acetylene is used by the guides as
a means of illuminating the Colossal
cavern, near Louisville, Ky., the step
having been regarded as necessary to
prevent the ruin of the various speci-
mens, which were becoming very
much discolored by the soot from the
iard oil hand lamps, which have been
in use heretofore. A small hand out-
fit is carried by the guide, and while
it is not sufficient for a full trip
through the cavern, the guide carries
an extra supply of th*4 fuel with him
ind recharges during the trip.
Here’s what’s next.
