As Hansen says, "It is admitted that
the Exodus is not only historical,
but the true beginning of history
for mankind." The nation which
then so dramatically emerged from
slavery has had the longest distinct
existence of ajl the peoples that have
ever lived upon earth: und even to
this hour their persistence in un
diminished identity,and rejuvenated
national consciousness is a' witness
to tliei providenee -of the God of
Abraham and MoseS. lleiriove Je

A Hard Appreiftieesliip
More than four hundred years
had elapsed between the day when 1
Jacob and his train left the famine
scourged fields of Canaan for, the
granaries of Egypt, and the day
when God spoke to Pharaoh through
Moses, saying, "Let my people go."
In those years the shepherd clan of
Joseph had become a great host.
Their .strength ' had come to be re
garded as a menace by th'e Egyp
tians. who had subjected them to j
onerous slavery and cruel oppres
sion. In the furnace of allliction
| they were welded into oneness.
I awaiting God's hour of deliverance. j
There arc no meaningless blank ■
spaces in life or history. The provi- !
dence in all these years of bitter !
desolation is now plain; even as we j
already see great blessings being I
wrought by the war. . When He Jiad '
prepared Israel, arid had prepared
ant an for the hour, God moved for •
His people's deliverance. The divine ;
clock may seem long in striking, but |
it always strikes. Like many mor- j
tals. groaning beneath a fortune j
which hard v can be borne, Israel I
erfed in travail and discouragement, j
"How long? O Lord! How long?" |
but the dawn was surely drawing,
nigh, oven though the night was at i
its blackest. We who are at the day
break of the world, and able to I
glimpse the high Providences in the 1
war, should be reverent before the
faitjh that held out throughout the
midnight' experience.
A' Stublnint King's Hard Lesson
Kings do not learn easily; that is
wljy their ranks have recently been ,
so .dramatically thinned. Paraoh
wojld not listen to the plea of
Moles, the divine ambassador, that
thor overworked Hebrews should be
permitted to go off for a period to
worship their Deity: he who will not
heied God's pleadings and warnings
must be made to feel His judgments.
There is no escaping God, who is in
carnate and inevitable justice.
Grept aggregations of material
wealth have thought themselves
abuiife the law, and immune from
those obligations which society lays
upon individuals; but they have I
beew brought to book, in a manner j
not dissimilar from experience j
of Pharaoh. The inevitableness of
G0.4. should be accepted as a basal
principle by whoever seeks a life of ,
peace. No one can evade Him or I
defy Him or ignore Him. The j
plagues of Egypt are but incidents j
in in long train of historical events,
ehjbf among them the war, which
sigiiify that God is bound to have
Hl* way in the world.
The ten plagues which God sent
upon Egypt were natural events
suptrnaturally administered. Each
of Uieni had at some time or other,
in f lesser measure, been felt by the
Egyptians: so they were fully aware
of . the dreadfulness of these visita
tions which came and went at the
bidding of Jehovah's messenger.
Moses, by the way, was the first man
in the Scriptural history to bear a
commission to others, and the first
ti> work miracles; for miracles the
plagues undoubtedly were, although
eaO had its natural analogy.
Then followed the crushing blow
wmeh broke Pharaoh's proud spirit
aifl accomplished the deliverance of
the Hebrews. This time there was
no display of the rod, no tragic in
vocation of high heaven's aid, no
Instrumentality to impress the peo
ple) no awesomiri warning)! Silently
and. unseen by any mortal, the final
bloiv was delivered in this auda
cious duel between a proud earthly
moharch and the almight King of
kings. In all the mystery of unex
pectedness and midnight darkness,
by T)o visible sword, the flrst-born
of all Egypt perished!
Pharaoh had doomed all the male
infants of Israel to.die: now his own
son (the Phariioh of the oppression
was succeeded on the throne by his
widow, according to some authori
ties), and the first-born of every
family, down to that of the slave

A Sign of Escape
Here we find the beginning of an
institution which has been kept up
ever since, wherever the children of
Abraham have dwelt. It was the
divine design to pass over His own
peopie in this dread visitation;
therefore he appointed the sign of
the blood and the sacrificial feast,
crowded with the significance of a
fuller, greater Passover and its
Lamb yet to come; and this mem
orial continues to this day, a his
toric practice more eloquent than
the monuments A. keen writer, (Les
lie) two centuries ago found in the
Passover institution four marks
which are never lacking from any
event of proved historicity: "visibil
ity, publicity, memorial observance
and contemporaneousness of institu
tion." More impressive than any
comment is the moving narrative it
self, as found in Exodus:
"Then Moses called for all the el
ders of Israel, and said unto them.
Draw out and take your lambs ac
cording to your families, and kill the
passover. And ye shall take a bunch
of hyssop, and dip it in the blood
that is in the basin, and strike the
lintel and the two side-posts with
the blood that is in the basin; and
none of you shall go out of the door
of his house until the morning. For
Jehovah will pass through to smite
the Egyptians; and when He seeth
the blood upon the lintel, and on the
two side-posts, Jehovah will pass
over the door, and will not suffer
the destroyer to come in unto your
houses to smite ybu. And ye shall
observe this thing for an ordinance
to thee and to thy sons forever. And
it shall come to pass, when ye are
come to the land which Jehovah will
give you, according as He hath
promised, that he shall keep this
service. And it shall come to pass,
when your children shall say unto
you, What mean ye by this service?
that ye shall say, It is the sacrifice
of Jehovah's passover, who passed
over the houses of the children of

With a Bad Stomach
How to Turn a Had Stomach lato a
Good One In Five Minute*
.Why do people go on suffering from
indigestion and topsyturvy stomach
when they know that Mi-o-na stom
ach tablets are sold on the money
back plan.'
If a physician, a specialist in stom
ach diseases, came to you and said:
"1 will fix up that miserable, worn
out stomach for you or money back.
"I will make it as good as new so
you will not suffer from any distress
and can eat what you want without
fear or suffering, or money back.
"I will relieve you of indigestion,
or money back," would you turn
down his offer?
And when you are offered Ml-o-na
stomach tablets, made from a pre
scription better than many of the
stomach specialists know how to
write, are you going to be narrow
minded and continue to suffer from
indigestion, or are you going to be
fair to yourself and try Mi-o-na on
the money back agreement.
Mi-o-na stomach tablets are offered
to you 6n this basis, that if they do
not put your stomach into such good
shape that there is no dizziness, sour
stomach, biliousness, sick headache
and stomach distress, your money
will be returned. For sale by H. C

Israel In Egypt, when He smote the
Egyptians, und delivered our houses.
"And the people bowed the head
and worshipped. And the children
of Israel went and did so; as Jeh6-
vah had commanded Moses and
Aaron, so did they. And it came to
pass at midnight. that Jehovah
smote all the first-born in the land
of Egypt, from the flrst-born of
Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto
the flrst-bon of the captive that was
in the dungeon, and all the first
born of cattle. And Pharaoh rose
up in the night, he and all his serv
ants, and all the Egyptians; and
there was a great cry in Egypt: for
there was not a house where there
was not one dead."
Tlic Meaning of the Miracle
The underlying message of the
Passover for our own ensanguined
times is expressed in many ways
even to-day: God has put a differ
ence. between His own people and
those that know Him not. Any
traveler among nations knows this
to be so. He sees Christian peoples
ruling the world. He Ilnds a differ
ence between the white man arid the
yellow or the brown or the black
that is fundamentally a difference of
moral character. God cares for His
own, with a peculiar, personal and
paternal care. The faith of the
•little child, that God is interested in
its affairs and knows it by name
and is concerned for its welfare, is
the greatest truth of the highest re
ligion revealed to man. What God
said in the Passover He is still say
ing by revelation and providence:
"Casting all your caj-e upon Him,
for He careth for you." *
The paschal lamb was to be eaten
by families; the godly household is

Every people, like every Individ- i

is not good to forget these, for they i
come laden with messages from the j
past which the present needs. And j
the great' message of the Passover, !
which is perpetrated in the I.ord's
Supper, is that in the sign of the T
blood is salvation. "Christ, our
Passover," who was sacriilced for j
us, is the only warrant we have for .
claiming the divine favor and pro- I
tection. "Without the shedding of
blood there is no remission of sin."
As I beheld our dear dead on a
battlefield of France, more griev- I
ous'y shattered than I can tell,
there swept over me the conviction,
"These are our bodies, broken for
you." In the train of Christ, our I
heroes have shed their blood for J
the salvation of mankind. In the !
shed blood of the whole world's i
sufficient Paschal I.amb there is ;
safety, liberty and life in fulness.

Are Our Soldiers
Getting a "Square Deal?"
As the din of war dies away, lesser sounds become audible and our papers are beginning to give
ear to various creakings and joltings of our military machine with special attention to their effect
upon the individual soldier. . . ,
Thus we hear many complaints that discharged soldiers arc stranded far from home without
money or a job, that we have not provided adequate hospital accommodation for our returning
wounded; that there is an unpardonable holding back of soldiers' pay and the allotments of pay made
by soldiers to their families; and that there' is delay and inaccuracy in publishing the casualty lists and
excessive slowness and failure in handling the soldiers' mail.
In an important, article in this week's LITERARY DIGEST these various complaints arc set
forth and the views of newspaper editors and others regarding them are presented. Other articles qf
