Secretary of Ameiican Society of Re
ligious Education,
Introduction. During tho quarter wa
bnvo studied select passages In tho his
tory of Israel from tho giving of Manna
In tho wilderness of Sin to tho death of
Moses In tho laud of Moub, Tho tlmo
coveted Is nearly forty years, 1190 to 14rl
II. C, Every lesson has had some refer
ence to Moses ns tho great central figure.
Wldlo thcro has been a disclosure of tho
Intellectual aud religious lifo of tho peo
ple there Iuib been more striking represen
tation of this great leader. In the main
thcro has been much to adn,ll'o only on
ono or two occasions did ho exhibit weak
nesses, Grcnt progress was mado In thoso
years. A nation was organized, Its laws
wero enacted, and Its forms of public
worship were lixed,
FIRST LKSSON.-July C. The Giving
of Munmi, (Ex. xvl. 1-15). Tho first of
tho long series of murmuriiiKs In which
Israel enguged, wns for luck nf food. A
few weeks nut of Egypt, the supplies ex
hausted, they turned against Moses mid
Aaron as responsible for their misfor
tunes, longing for tho flesh pots of their
nominee, -ino i.ord promised to relievo
tho distress by sending both llesli and
breud; making this the proof of Jits
preseiu'o und care, The promise was fill,
tilled and tho supply of food continued
throughout tho wundeilng,
SCEOND LESSON.-July 13. Tho Ten
Commandments. Duties of God. (Ex,
xx, Ml). Tho national foundation was
nffected In n constitution of ten parts
tho first four of which established mono
theism. Of these three wero negative and
ono positive. Other gods were prohibited,
Idolatry was forbidden, and blusphemy
condemned. Thus tho Individual and the
community nlllto began with a correct
idea of God and the proper attitude to.
ward Him. This was fundamental and
vital. To preserve this thcistle concep
tion one-scvcnth of tho tlmo was net
apart to sacred uses and tho other six
Bovcnths wore consecrated to secular pur
poses. THIRD LESSON.-July 20. Tho. Ten
Commandments. Duties to Man (Ex.
xx, 1217). Under this codo mdrntlty Is
Inseparably enjoined with religion. Duty
to God Involves duty to ,tnnn, Neither
can bo truly met whllo the other is neg
lected. But thera Is a natural order, hero
nnuounccd first, filial reverence, tho
mother regarded as well ns tho father;
tho life to bo held sacred! then chastity
to bo obsorvod; then property rights to bo
respected! tho reputation and truth to
bo preserved! Inst of nil tho invasion of
rights by desiring another's possessions to
bo denied, It Is probable that thoso six
precepts directly or by Implication deal
with nil tho relations nnd conditions of
FOURTH 'LESSON.-July 27. Worship
ping tho Golden Calf. (Ex. xxxlll, 1-3.").
The second statute of tho decaloguo was
soon broken, proving that tho people wero
not prepared for tho high standard which
bad been set up. Tho occasion wns the
long nbsenco of Moses In tho mount
whero ho wns receiving Instructions from
God. Tho religions sentiments of tho
people were not satisfied with a spiritual
being. There was need of something
that appealed to tho senses. . Hence,
Idolatry enmo In, llko that practiced In
FIFTH LESSON.-Aug. 8. Tho Tab
ernacle, (Ex. xl, 1-13), During the pa
triarchal dispensation worship was per
formed nt an altar of stono which might
bo erected anywhere. God met tho sili
cons worshipper. Under a national sys
tem, especially after sojourn In Egypt, a
moveable tent was sot up as tho abiding
place of the Almighty. Constructed with
tho free will offerings of tho people nfter
patterns shown In tho mount It was sot
up In tho midst of tho camp nnd became
the center of nil religious life and Influ
ence. It served to unify nnd educnto
and to prefigure things to come.
SIXTH LESSON.-Aug. 10. Nadab
nnd Ablhu. (Lev. x, 1-11). As tho law
was broken so tho holy place was pro
faned. Two sons of Aaron, high officials
In tho sanctunry. disregarded tho regula
tions which had been adopted for tho
proper conduct of worship. Unless ror
buked their example would havo been
followed by others, and In a short tlmo
nil reverence would have departed from
tho sacred place and Irregularities nnd
Improprieties would havo beeen mul
tiplied. Tho offenders were Instantly de
stroyed; nnd their bodies wero carried out
of tho camp for burial. No mourning was
allowed even by relatives. From that
time forth a difference was mado be
tween things holy and unholy.
neying toward Canaan. (Numb. x. lt-13
and 29-36). The toilsome marches through
the wilderness are described only In part,
and then very briefly In the sacred vol'
nme. The way wns beset with peril
ngalnst which Moses sought to protect
himself by securing the presence of his
father-in-law, who, having long lived in
thnt region, was familiar with It. But
tho Invitation was rejected and Hobab re
turned to his old home. What was more
valuable than human escort, tho pillar
of cloud, wherein was tho Divine pres
ence, remained with them leading them
on and showing them when to pause.
The piety of Moses appeared in Ills trust
in God, ready to move whenever tho
cloud Indicated.
EIGHTH LESSON.-Aug. 24. Report
of tho Spies. (Numb, xill l!ii, to xlv, I).
Twelve men, one from ench tiibe, went
forth from Kndlsh Balnea to explore
the land of Canaan. After travelling
through tho entire country they returned
and reported that the land was beautiful
and fruitful, bringing a huge bunch of
grapes to verify their statement, but thnt
tho Inhabitants wero very strong. Caleb
and Joshua advised nn immediate ad
vance clalmng that they wero able to
subdue and possess the land. The other
ten spies gave nn evil report which wns
accepted by the body of the people who
murmured ngalnst Moses. Supposing the
expedition was a total failure there was
a proposal to elect another captain and
return to Egypt, thus rejecting the mis
sion and tho leader. In this Instance
there was nn eellpso of faith and an In
cipient rebellion.
NINTH LESSON.-Aug. 31. Tho Rrnzcn
Serpent. (Numb, xxl, 1-9). After many
years of wandering In the wilderness Is
rael was turned n second time toward Ca
naan, Discouraged In the weary march
there was general complaint ngalnst
Moses as on tho other occasions. To
chastise them and bring them Into hu
mility nnd submission fiery serpents were
sent among them. Groaning from pain
nnd bereavement were heard through
out tho camp. The spirit of penitence
followed: Moses Interceded nnd God
pardoned. But to help tho fultb and sym
bolize great truths to be learned a brazen
serpent was lifted upon a polo In tho
center of tho camp. Whosoever looked
toward this should live. (John, ill, ll-ir,).
TENTH LESSON.-Sept. 7. The Proph
et llko Moses. (Dent, xvlll, 9-22). This
lesson might bo styled "God's method of
giving Religious Truths." Tho peoplo
wero commanded not to be practice thoso
arts by which tho Cannanltes sought In
formationIncantations, spiritualism, di
vination, etc., for which they had been
expelled from their country. These prac
tices were abominable in tho sight
nf tho Lord, likely to corrupt aud de
grade. But Instead God promised to
ralso up a class of men, to bo knwon ns
Divinely commissioned when they rest
ed their sayings upon predictions that
afterward come through.

unknown grnvo having attained tho ago
of 120 years. National mourning fol

tho command, and tho heart nf Israel
turned toward him, By some later his
torian a postcrlpt wns added to tho book
saying that Moses was nn llicompurabto

CONCLUSION.-Flfleen hundred years
nfter Moses died In Monh ho appeared
upon tho Mount of Transfiguration with
Ellas, tho great prophet to converse with
Jesus. (Matt., xvll, 2.) Later stilt a New
Testament writer nsserts that tho law
giver was Inferior to Jesus Christ (Hob.,
Ill, 3), and shows wherein. (Heb., Ill, r-(.)
From thoso passages It Is evident thnt
the Mosaic economy looked forward to
tho Christian era In which It wns fulfilled.
It would bo wlso thcrcforo to retrace tho
steps ulong tho quarter's lessons to see
bow they lend on toward tho Intended
goal, All true souls that preceded Jesus
helped to make tho world ready for him.
All tho work of tho earlier tlmo con
tributed something to tho building of tho
now church.

If ono has a toothache and can't
reach the dentist, try this method of
temporarily delaying the pain: Cleanse
nnd dry the hollow tooth with n bit
of cotton. Then put In a small cotton
plug dipped In creosote or oil of cloves.
Cover this with another bit of dry
cotton, or, still better, a llttlo beeswax
and cotton kneaded together. This
keeps out the air and downs tho "mis
cry" until u dentist can be reached.
While the habits and customs of the
untutored savage nre not always to
bo commended to his white brother,
there are some things that boar tho
Impress of good, sound, common sense.
For Instance, among the Hopls and
Mnrcjos, who stand at tho head of all
the Indian tribes, for their feats of
strength nnd endurance, It Is the cus
tom to leave an opening In all their
garments just under the arm. Instead
of covering up tho nrmplt with extra
shields, a silt about six Inches long Is
cut In the under wnlst nnd nrm seams.
This gives the air freo access to that
part of tho body when perspiration Is
most profuse.
In New York city ono of the best
known professors of the "benutlfler"

declares, drink tho oil In with avid

rounded contours follow Itsi persistent
In shampooing white hair, the up-to-dato
hair dresser uses a llttlo laundry
blue In the last rinsing water. This
gives the hah- a clear white tinge,
much more beautiful than the yellow
cast which 13 common to tho unlnl

These do not cut off tho llcht, but

A successful venture in a new food
combination, tho other day, deserves
passing on. The dinner was being
prepared over a gas range, and the
gas refused to glvo more than ono
burner of good llamo at a time. The
cook had started to boll new potatoes
In one saucepan and lima beans In qn
othcr. When she found that only one
kettlo could be kept boiling, sho put
the contents of the two vessels to
gether and finished their cooking.
When tender they were set back to
steam, whllo a white sauce, was pro
pared and turned over them.
The result wns so delicious and sat
isfactory that tho combination will bo
used again, even if not necessary.

Scheme for Establishing Mldocean

From American Shipbuilding.
A scheme Is on foot In Liverpool
which It is claimed by tho English ship
ping journals, will soon bo In commer
cial operation for utilizing wireless
telegraphy In n mid-ocean pnstofflca '
nnd signal station. It Is tho Intention-'
to permanently moor at 'a point 110 .
miles west of tho Lizard a ship wlileli'
will be equipped with 11 searchlight and .
a complete sot of Miircnnli apparatus,!
A3 the water nt tho point selected will ';
Involve the use of n moorlngi chain 40f""''
or M0 feet In length, the weight- of '
which would prevcut the bows from- .
riding buoyantly over tho heavy sous,- k
tho vessel will bo prqvlded with a w
hawse-pipe placed In the heel of - the
foremast, . !..
The searchlight Is to havo a vertical'
beam for the purpose of. Illuminating ,
the clouds and enabling tho flouting -.5
postofllco to bo picked up at night froip ,
a distance of sixty ii)!es, or more, As,
the vessel will bo located In,, the .fair, r
way of tho English chunncl, It will ,be ,
advantageously placed for ,ti6 . illst,!-!.-, , ,
btitlop of orders sent from shpre,by.1tlho .,
owners of vessels which nro passing, Jrij ,,..
and out of the channel. Thus a s)pn '"
coining In from the west or from ,tli n ,,
south could be directed eRhec to Mv'er-,
pool. Bristol or an English cjutnnpl ,
port. Uy this means pilotage pud port "
dues would be reduced, 'nnd. of course; -there
would bo n considerable'1 savjng '
of time. The vessel will 'serve as- a '
floating station, which can be picked ;
up for wireless communication. Th'e
ynlue of this form of postolllce U'Vx'- n
pected to be very great. Moreover, ly.
lug ut tho junction of the three great
thoroughfares of- Urltlsh nnd continent-

prove particularly valuable In salvage
