of whoso palm had dropped all the H '
cis, and all the seas, and all the
oceans had only to speak the word of
command and the boisterous w:ies
crouched at His feet in humble sub
mission. This was not tbe only time iti the
career of the King that He proved
Himself tnnster of the natural world.
V.'liile there was never any out-;oini;
of His power to meet His own per
sonal needs there was never any
diminution of His power to help those
who were In peril from the elements.

Ruler of the Invisible.
Hut visible nature Is not man's only
environment. There is an unseen uni
verse besides to which man is mote
or less subject. We are all conscious
id an invisible world. su;'rii'aiuir.s' us
mi all sides, mysterious. in otapr-. a. n
siti'.e, yet exerting an induon: e ov r
us which we cannot escape. We
just as much moved upon by ihi:
vorbl as we are by this. This ''' ' M
affects our physical na'.ur;', that v oral
iiffects our moral nature ami we etc
rait escape It. Whatever may be
lat'int by demoniac possession, the
old-fashioned statement that a''
people are possessed of the devil
bodies a Kreat tru.li. There ::e
storms In the spiritual word,
be dreaded than elec'rlcal storm
the material world, I aore terribh
far than any cyclone that ever r
over a western prairie town. Hat
King of men is Master even here
Demons Own His Power.
The disciples had no sooner
caned the neril of one storm
they came ui) against another in
person of two demoniacs men v':o
were under the power of nn aw e.l
brain storm. These men were set free
from their peril and suffering by a
word of power, the demons which
possessed then being hurled into the
deep by the Hat of the King. Mysten

Kihlv Dot llo .,.! remnlns that V. la li
wife and sons reached Corsica in
i sufetv. Once In Corsica he brood
ed over the humiliation of leaving
j his beloved young daughter in a
; Moorish harem, and conceived the
1 project of equipping nn expedition to
j kidnap one of the Moorish princes
and obtain his child by way of ex
i change or ransom. He chartered
, a vessel and landed at Sallee, but
was struck down with fever and
died a tew days siibseciicntly. The
i expedition, deprived of its leader, re
' turnd to Corsica.
For a long perlo 1 nothing was
heard of liavla until in ITmi, agents
of the Saltan of Morocco arrived in
Corsica to trace the Francheslnl
' family. The little Mavla had grown
. up and was now empress. Her
mother and brothers returned to
Morocco where they we-e received
. with rual honors, and a palace
with five hundred slaves was set
apart for their use; as a special
mark of favor, Davla was permitted
'. to Join them. She had unbounded
Inlluetice over the aged ruler v. bo
recognized her ability as well as her
beauty; this monarch, however, was
poisoned In one of the many palace
revolutions by one of bis sons, who
succeeded him. Davla remained un
; molested by the new Sultan, and
died of the plague 111 1SU2-. H-ir
1 mother remained in Morocco with
' ore of her sons, Augustin, and the
1 other son became consul-general for
Morocco at Genoa, where he died
about IS 21).
