Three Perfect Scores
All three oars entered in the three-day Publicity Run came in on time at each and every
cheeking station and finished at final control with a perfect score.
Although many cars of higher price experienced considerable mechanical trouble every
one of the three Her If-Brooks Sixes came through without even a mechanical adjustment.
One hundred per cent, perfect on a three-day run of 40S miles. Averaged seventeen miles to
the gallon of gasoline and 1-30 miles to one quart of oil. Took every hill on high gear.

Twenty-five cars equipped with the
I'nion Self-healing Tubes and not a one
delayed with puncture trouble, is the
honor claimed by the I'nion Sales Com
pany. Special reference is made to the
Uupmobile car, which carried the man
ager and sales force of the I'nion Sales
The tires on this car were punctured
twenty-five times before the car started
on the run, the punctures being made
with a large ice pick driven into the
tire by a heavy mallet. Following the
puncture the car made the entire run of
nearly 300 miles without further pump
ing. Throughout the run they kept the
car going at its best clip in order to
show that abuse, even of the worst
kind, had no effect on these tires what
ever. Many spikes and nails were
picked up along the course. AV. E. Orth,
of the City Star Laundry, driving a
' adillac, picked up a large nail near
< oatesville, but failed to note it until
his attention was attracted at the
< oatesville control. He plucked the nail
from the tire, started his engine, and
resumed the trip without any delay.
•I. K. Kipp. driving a Herflf-Brooks
"6." picked up an unusually large spike,
but kept or. driving and finished the run
with a perfect score.
The car was probably the best ad
vertised during the run. A body twelve
feet in length and three and one-half
tVet wide, was bolted to the bodv of
this car, with great letters which stood
out ••learlv. They distributed more ad
vert.sing literature than any other

Lesson VII. —Second Quarter.
For May 16. 1915.
Twl of tha Laaaon, I Sam. *xvi, 5-16,
Memory Vara**. 11, 12—Goldan Taxt,
Luka vi, 27—Commentary Praparad
by Rav. D. M. Staarna.
The lesson today Is ■ record of one
of tbv occasions on which David had
Saul completely at his mercy, but he
! refused to lay hands u|k>u him or to
listen to the suggestion of Abiskal that
David would permit him to smite Saul,
for he said. "As the Lord llveth, the
Lord shall smtte him. or his day shall
come to die. or he shall descend Into
I>attle aud i<erlsh'" (verses 9. 10). Thus
David left the matter wholly in the
bauds of the Lord, illustratiug his own
words. "Commit thy way uuto the
Lord: trust also in Him. and tie shall;
bring it to |>ass" (Ps. xxxvil, 51. I Batn.
jxxi tells bow his end came.
On this occasion David took the spear '
aud the cruse of water from Saul's j
bolster that he might show hhu how i
he had him in bis power, but did not 1
harm blm. David was able to do this
without any one knowing It because a
deep sleep from the Lord was fallen
upon Saul and his men (verses 11, 12). j
Compare Gen. 11. 21: xv, 12, and consid
er Peter's release from prisou. though
be was bound with chains between
I two soldiers, and there was a guard at
the door of the prison (Acts xit. 0-10.
18. 19). Truly the God of Israel Is the
God that doest wonders (Fs. Ixxll. IS;
j lxxvll. 14). David, with his trophies,
stood on the top of a hill afar off aud
cried to Abner that, though he was a
! valiant man. lie was worthy to die be- I
cause he bad failed to take care of the
king, and he told him to look for the
king's spear and cruse of water that j
had been by his bolster tverees 13-16). |
Saul kuew David's voice and pro
fessed to be very grateful to him for
sparing his life, asking blm to return
to him. and saying that he would uo
more seek to do him harm, but David
knew his enemy too well, and after
telling him to send for bis spear, they
again parted, each going his own way
(verses 17-2S). This was not the first
time that David hud Saut In his pow
er. but refused to harm him. See in i
chapter xxlv how he cut off the skirt j
of Saul's robe and how Saul then pro- '
fessed penitence and good will and
spoke of David's being king some day. j
Thus Saul sought him every day. but .
' God delivered hitn not into his hand J
| (xxiil, 14). In the end of chapter xxlll
there is the record of an Incident that
looked like a close call for David, but
Saul was suddenly called off aud David
escaped All through the story we can
hear David saying: "The Lord is the
strength of my lif?. Of whom shall I
be afraid?" (Ps. xxvii, 1-3.)
The cave of Adullam story in chap- '
ter xxii is full of interest, beginning
with his seeking a place of safety for
bis father and his mother till he could
know what God would do for him aud j
ending with his words of comfort to
Ablathnr: "Abide thou with me. Fear
not. for he that seeketh my life seeketb
thy life, but with me thou shalt lie in
safeguard." Chapter xxv tells of the
death and burial of Samuel and then
the story of drunken Nabal and his
beautiful wife Abigail—beautiful In
wise counsel to David and in her con
duct toward him. Some of her mem
orable words are ever with me: "Bound
in the bundle of life with the Ix>rd thy
God'' ixxv, 29i. a bundle which cannot
be broken, for those to w-hom lie gives
eternal life can never perish (John x.
2S). Chapters xxvli, xxlx, xxx. tell the
story of Ziklag, which Acbisb gave to
David, but to which David returned on
one occasion to find the town in ruins
and the wives, sons and daughters of
himself and his (XX) followers all
gone into captivity. That was one of
the most trying times In all David's ex
perience, and they all wept until they
had no more power to weep. The
grief of David, almost beyond endur
ance. was heaped up by the threat of
his 000 followers to stone him, as if he
was the cause of all tbis. so that Da
vid seemed, as far as human sympathy
wns concerned, to be absolutely alone.
Then we read the words which have
helped so many. "David encouraged
himself In the Lord his God" (xxx, 6).
A somewhat similar incident in the
life of Puul is recorded in II Tim. iv,
16-18. The way that David found the
•ueniy, the Amalekltea, through the
guidance of an almost dead Egyptian
servaut whom be restored to life, aud
how he recovered all—wives, sons,
daughters, spoil, nothing lacking to
any. and much additional spoil—is a
very thrilling record and should en
courage us all to wait on the Lord and
not to thiuk anythiug too hard for
Him There were 200 of David's men
too weak to join in the pursuit of the
enemy, but they. too. shared In the
spoils of victory, and David made it a
law that those who tarry by the stuff
shall share equally with those who go
forth to battle (xxx. 10. 24). Let all
homekeeprrs be encouraged. The sin
of Saul in the matter of familiar spir
its and the witch of Endor Is recorded
In chapter xxvlll This ts a prevailing
, sin of many today. It is wholly of the
devil and Is strictly forbidden in Deut i
xvili. 9-12. It Is not all trickery, but
ofttimes some real work of the adver
sary. The living, those who are truly
saved, should seek only the living God
and His life giving word. All else is
from the devil, and It will be a night
of awful darkness forever for all who
turn away from the Word of God.

London, May 15, 3 P. M.—German
and Austrians again besieged the Amer

of demanding protection for them
selves and their property they sought
the aid of the American otlicials to
prevent their heing repatriated in con
sequence of the action of the govern
' ment announced Thursday by Premier
Asquith. Most of the callers at the
I consulate were either over or under
the internment age. Many were worn
en with their children. These persons
explained that for years their homes
had been in this country and that their
| deportation to Germany or Austria
would bo regarded by them as n greater
calamity than internment here.
The American consul general, Rob
■ «>rt P. Skinner, took their statement"
but was unable to promise any action
in their behalf further than that trans
! mission of their requests to the proper
, authorities.
