this particular invasion Is mudo In tho

doubts were icmoved Gideon summoned
tho people who pitched theii tent1! besldo

sajlng that tho water is erellent and
abundant, nnd that It "flows f.om a cav

Gilboa." Tills stntegle point was mndo
the scene ot manv sanguinary conflicts In
Jewish and Giecian history. Thu Ciu

THE HATTTLE.-(Veises 19, i, SI).
Tho dcclslvo hour camo about midnight,
Tlio Mldliiu host wns asleep, all except
tho watch that had been sot, testing in
seeinlty. Tho lino of tho tlueo hundred
moved steadily forward until It caino to
tho outside of tho enemies enmp. In tho
right hind of ouch mnu was tho trumpet,
and In his left hand his pitcher. Sud
denly tho signal was given by Gideon.
Tlueo bundled timnpots blew, nnd tin oo
hundred pltchcis were hiokcn, lighting
up tho scene. Tho nolso awakened tho
slecpeis who weio further altumed ny
tho glinlng light that shone about them.
In tho midst of the confunlnn thnt fol
lowed thero fell upon tho ens of all tho
shouts of the Israclltlsh waulors, "The
swoid of tho Loid and of Gideon." That
cnrrled dismay to every heart. The stoiy
of wonderful vlctoilcs nthlevcd In other
years by Jehovah, and tho knowiedgo
that Gideon had been chosen ns the cap
tain of tho Lord, prepared all to bcllcvt.
that another onslaught was near, mean
ing death to all who woio ni rayed against
tho God of Isiael Panic Issued. Mldlnu
fled, and In tho lmsto men turned upon
each other. Thero was a fearful slaugh
ter, Mldlanlto against Mldl.inlte.
REFLECTIONS.-WIicn God sees men
Inclined to oveilook Him, nnd through
unbelief to shrink fiom perilous service,
or through prldo to vaunt themselves
against Him, Ho lays them aside and
does Ills work by other Instruments.
Many profess thomsclven to be followeis
of Christ, prcpaied to fight whllo tribu
lation is at a distance, but in prospect of
danger fhey desert tho cause. A religious
society is stronger when all such havo
detmitcd from it. Somo who havo leal
faith are yet unfit for real service, unable
to bear peculiar trials, from which there
fore tho Lord will exempt thorn, and to
whlrli Ho will appoint those who nro of
firmer spliit. The united efforts of bravo
men, led on by a. seivnnt of God, may
accomplish marvelous things. Ono tre
mene'ous movement of a small band, all
uf whom believe in God, will lnlng con
tusion to the foes of llghtumsiuss, and
win a battle for the tiuth which bv
manv ot faint beau would be lost (
John v, I).
