Saul, tall, handsome, klnglv in outicard appearance,
proved a failure as king of Israel, and David, the
shepherd loy, a "little runt" in comparison, was chosen
In his stead. Head the account of Saul's failure, how he
failed in the chief qualification of kingship, namely,
obedience to the Divine Will. Then follow old Samuel
in Ms search for another king and see how he teas
directed to choose Davldt the despised youngest of
Jesse's eight tons. The central truth .is evident in
verse 1: "Man looketh on the outward appearance, hut
the Lord loqketh on the heart."
Any one of David's seven brothers would have made
a finer-looking king than David, but when the Lord is
selecting real kings lie doesn't go much on looks. Heart
quality, character, is the determining factor in the Divine
law of selection. Cleopatra was beautiful in Caesar's
eyes, but she was infamous. Baul of Tarsus was unaU

THOUSANDS ASKED TO

Hcarl-brokcn Wife and Mother
Makes Request of Clergy.
One Scents Option "Plot.'
If the plnn of nn anonymous writer does
not mlscnrry.htintlreds of ministers In this
city will pray with their congregations to
morrow that an unknown man who Is
erted to bo a husband nnd n father be
converted from the evils ot strong liquor.
No prayers of such n nature will be of.
feretl In the Oermnn Luthcrnn churches,
because the ministers of that cull ha
determined thnt the wrller or the letter la
not slncore .nd hns tired the method of
writing to the vnrlous ministers solely In
nn elTort to concentrate ngltatlon on the
local option ijiii'sllnn nt every tellglous
service In t.ie city.
Ont of the flerntan Luthernn ministers
who tcvlvrri a copy of the letter had his
suspicions nrnused by tho salutation In
the missive, lie showed ;hP letter to an
other mln'.-ter of the same faith When he
had read It he reached into his pocket
nnd prtilticed an identical letter In the,
same handwriting. Using the telephone o
make IihiuIiIfs Ihcso two men learned that
pthcist of their faith h.id received similar
lettris. Tho conference followed, and after
a rompnuson 0f tlio Icttci It was da
cltucd that the nunc permm had written
all or thriit nnd thnt no nllentlon would
bo given to the request.
A copy of the letter follows:
Uenr Itrother In Christ:
"Uellevlnif Implicitly In the divine prom
