full pensions, even If they marry be-

children will get the same pensions iih

When both parents serve, they will
get almost double pensions In all
enses. the women are to have the
same salaries, lodging and traveling
expenses as the men. This latter
feature of the Stolypln system Is the
one that Is likely to make the deepest
Impression on the women school

Such beadwork as the buyers have

on trimming counters, according to the
New York Sun. The beads include
many metallic effects w ith all the rich,
deep colors of the American Indians
and the characteristic combinations of
Roumania and Bulgaria, but they also
come in the daintiest and loveliest
evening blends, that remind one of the
tints of rare paintings. There are filet
grounds studded with gold and silver
beads and with pearls. In fact, in the
gold and silver hands and jeweled ef-
fects the variety is wonderful. And
the tunics and waist garnishments are
here in the same wide choice of beau-
tiful bead and jewel combinations,
often with gold and silver cloth em-
broidered with beads and tinsel.
When the right time came, and No
hemlnh’s heart was burning with son
row and desire, he found “opportuni-
ties concealed In apparent hindrances."
It was dangerous to show sorrow lu
the presence of the king. Even a mod-
ern autocrat like Louis XIV. expected
everybody's face to shine If he did bul
appear, nnd how much more an Artax-
erxes? What, wear a sorrowful face
when he was presiding over joy and
gayety, gilding them with his pres-
ence? If he had ordered this melan-
choly vlsnge away to prison or death,
it would have been Justified by prece-
dent. A gloomy face might mean dis-
affection against the king. The'llghl
of his favor ought to be enough tc
drive all Badness away.
Nehemiah had hitherto been able
to keep a smiling face when before
the king; but one day at a superb
banquet, when the queen was din-
ing with her husband, amid gold plate,
gorgeous silk dresses of every hue,
marble pillars, fountains, music, lights,
sultanas, courtiers resplendent as the
sun, and all worshiping their sun Ar
taxerxes, smiling when he smiled, hit
sorrow shone through his face In
spite of himself, so that the king no
tlced it and said;
"Why Is thy countenance sad, see
ing thou art not sick? this Is nothing
else but sorrow of heart.” Then he
was very sore afraid, and said unto the
king, “Let the king live for ever: why
should not my countenance be sad,
when the city, the place of my fa
there’ sepulchres, lieth waste, and the
gates thereof are consumed of flrel
If It please the king, and if thy serv-
ant have found favor In thy sight, that
thou wouidest send me unto Judah,
unto the city of my fathers’ sepulchres,
that I may build it.”
The kind was pleased to grant his
request, made him the Tlrshatha, or
governor of Judea, “royal agent” or
“plenipotentiary,” with full powers.
He traveled to Judea in state, with a
military guard of cavalry, and with let-
! ters to the rulers o fthe neighboring
provinces to give him whatever he
needed for his work.
Nehemiah was very wise. He lay
quiet for three days, doing nothing, but
! learning everything. He showed no
credentials, he proposed no plans, he
told no one what he hoped to do. His
first business was to learn the whole
situation, the feelings of the people,
who would oppose, and who would
help, how able the people were, what
obstacles must be overcome.
Nehemiah met the rulers, nobles,
priests and people, and told them of
his purpose in coming, how he had
learned of their need, how he had
wept and fasted and prayed, and how
God had heard his prayer and caused
the great emperor to favor his plans,
give him permission to come, and au-
thority; with orders for the surround-
ing rulers to give thj needed help. He
told them of his midnight investiga-
The business side of religion should
be done as Nehemiah did it in the
most skillful and ideal business mas-r
ner. Nehemiah had a layman’s good
sense in religion. Walls were neces-
sary to the safety of the city. They
were also necessary to true religion.
| The division of labor, the noble com-
petition, the Interest in their work that
| kept them from taking time to even
i put off their clothes, the giving each
his own work, and over against his
own house, the union of watching and
praying and working, the working to-
gether of old and young, rich and poor,
form a real master-stroke of genius.”
The wall was parceled out among 44
working parties. It was like the re-
building of the walls of Athens after
the Invasion of Xerxes, like the build-
ing of the walls of Edinburgh after the
battle of Flodden. This plan made each
one more earnest and faithful as he
saw what others were doing. It ani-
mated the work with a noble emula-
tion, and a personal pride. See how
fast my work goes on! See how well
my piece is done! Now, my sons, gird
up your tunic, or Rephaiah the son
of Hur will get ahead of us. True
emulation Is to -do better than we
have done; to seek, not to get beyond
others, but to rise to the best possi-
ble for us; and to be Inspired to this
by seeing what others have done.
Besides the hostility of the Samar-
itans the Jews themselves were becom-

No good goes on to success without
meeting obstacles. Evil does not fall
without a battle. It throws slander,
ridicule, treachery, conspiracies, influ-
ence, discouragements, every possible
hindrance, in the way of reform. Even
some of the Jews were arrayed against
their brethren. They planned to take j
Nehemiah and the city by surprise, j
su»y the workers, and thus put a stop |
to the work, but the answer was watch-
ing and prayer.
WENT TO BLOCK CHEERFULLY!
Sir Walter Raleigh Under Sentence
of Death, Failed to Win Pardon
by Lact Voyage.
Fate nnd Justice worked some pe-
culiar pranks* In the olden days. Sir
Walter Raleigh, with the death sen-
tence hanging over him for 18 years,
failing In his flniil voyage of discovery,
returned to Knglund and went cheer-
fully to the block. He left the Tower
without the royal pardon In 1615. The
adventurous but still condemned man
had received permission to make an-
other voyage to South America. If ho
should he successful In the outcome
of his venture Raleigh knew the
king's mercy would be granted him.
But thlH last expedition, undertaken
with such a vital Interest at stake for
Raleigh, was unfortunate in all its re-
spects. At San TomaB, on the Cay-
enne river In Guiana, his men made a
hostile attack upon a Spanish settle-
ment. As England was then at peace
with Spain, this act of war against
the people of a friendly nation was a
most grievous offense against the
king. On October 29, 1618, he suffered
death by the ax. Having fingered the
edge, he returned It and said, stnlllng
to the sheriff: "This Is a sharp medi-
cine, but it Is n sound cure for all dis-

The great success ol Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis-
covery in curing weak stomachs, wasted bodies, weak
lungs, and obstinate and lingering coughs, is based on
the recognition of the fundamental truth that “Golden
Medical Discovery" supplies Nature with body-build-
ing, tissue-repairing, mqscle-making materials, in con-
densed and concentrated form. With this help Nature
supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to digest
food, build up the body and thereby throw off lingering
obstinate coughs. Tho “Discovery” re-establishes the
digestive and nutritive organs in sound health, purifies
end enriches the blood, and nourishes the nerves—in
short establishes sound vigorous health.

it is probably better FOR HIM—it pays better.
