gram. The trail of this Invisible Gov- brood of the Codling moth this sum-
ernment in and out of the halls of
Congress and elsewhere about the
national Capital and throughout the
country seems at last to have uncov-
ered partly at last,through the astoun-
ding confession of ««Qolonel,” Mulhall
who was for years ono of its active
agents in Washington and elsewhere.
Colonel Mulhall 8 confession inyol
ves the names of many men who have
been prominent in Congress in recent
years and of some who are stil mem-
bers of the Senate or the House. Both
Democrats and Republicans are in his
list. Of course Republican names
‘greatly outnumber those of Demo-
crats for, during the days of Mulhall’s
activity, the Republicans were in
power in both branches of Congress
and, although the Invisible Govern-
ment impartially entrusted its inter-
ests to Democrats and Republicans
alike, it naturally dealt chiefly ‘with
those who were in control and had the
power to give effect to its legislative
desizps. .
AmongiRepublicans, Colonel Mul-
hall names the late Vice President
Sherman, who was for years a promi-
nent leader in the House; ex-Speaker
Qannon: and Mr. Dalzell, of Pennsyl-
vania; Mr, Payne, of New York; Mr.
McKinley and Mr. Mann, of Illinois;
and Mr. Dwight, of New York, who
were important cogs in the Cannon
machine. Special emphasis is laid
upon the activity and friendliness of

«The mature moth of the first brood
that produces the second brood of

less infested or old orchards are near
yours, there will not be much danger
and hence not much need of spraying
to prevent infection from this source.
But even though the spraying in your
own orchard has been very effective
in preventing plant diseases and the
first brood of the Codling moth, if
there is an old orchard quite near
yours that shows diseased leaves and
wormy fruit at the present time, it is
very important for you to prepare to
spray some time in J uly with the .di-
lute lime-sulfur and arsenate of lead,
as mentioned above.”

Summer Spraying For Second
Brood of Codling Moth.
This is the time of the year that
many Pennsylvanians are writing to
Prof. H. A. Surface, State Zoologist,
Harrisburg, asking if it is necessary
to spray their trees again during the
summer for the second brood of the
Codeling moth which makes wormy
apples, pears and quinces. To such
inquiries Professor Surface replies as

LESSON TEXT-—Ex. 51-14
GOLDEN TEXT—'‘Blessed are they
that mourn for they shall be comforted.”
—Matt. 5:4
Only one incident is mentioned with
reference to that long journey Moses
had to take in returning from Midian
to Egypt. “The Lord met him and
sought to kill him,” (4:24). Moses is
about to pronounce a fearful penalty,
see 4:23, and it was necessary that he
comprehended the terrible meaning of
his threat. Also he had neglected to
observe the sign of covenant peace
(circumcision) with his youngest son,
and that was a serious delinquency
for the future leader of Israel. *It
was necessary at this stage of his ex-
perience that he should learn that God
is in earnest when he speaks, and will
assuredly perform all that he has
threatened.” (Murphy.)
Showing himself with Aaron, the
elders of Israel are soon convinced
that God had sent them and was about
to work out through Moses and Aaron
the long promised deliverance.
issue Plainly Stated.
1. Moses’ Message, vv. 1-9. Moses
and Aaron plainly stated the issue at
the very outset, “Thus saith the Lord
God of Israel” (v. 1). This was at
once a challenge as to the boasted su-
perior greatness of the Egyptian gods.
It. also touched Pharaoh’s pride for he
was an absolute monarch and can he
allow these representatives of an oOp-
pressed people any liberties? Lastly,
it was @ question of economic impor-
Pharaoh looked upon these Israel
ites as his own property, now they
are claimed for another. “Let my peo-
ple go.” In contempt, Pharaoh ex-
claims, “Who is Jehovah?” It was in
answer to that very question Moses
had been sent and right well was Pha-
raoh to learn the answer ere the ac-
count is settled. Men are flippantly
asking that same question today, both
by word and conduct, who will find
out to their final sorrow who Jehovah
is, and why they should obey his
voice. Pharaoh spoke the truth when
he said “I know not the Lord,” but
though he seems to boast of that he
little knew what it means for a man
to set up his will against that of God.
“J will not” was the proud boast of a
weak, wilful, ignorant worm of the
.dust, for all his exalted position zmong
men. Read 2 Thess. 1:8 and Rom,
In reply, (v. 3) Moses and Aaron
did not seek to argue the case. Very
little is ever gained by such a meth-
od, much better for us to deliver God's
message verbatim and trust to the
holy spirit to bring conviction. Moses
and Aaron were far more afraid of
the pestilence and sword of Jehovah
than the boasted power of Pharaoh.
God does punish disobedience whether
we like it or not, see Deut. 28:21.
. Zech. 14:16-19, etc. This fearlessness
angered Pharaoh (v. 4) and he com:
mands them and their brethren at
once to resume their burdens. The
world is constantly accusing the ser-
vants of God of unfitting people for
their work, see Amos 7:10, Luke 23:2
and Acts 17:6.
Truth Confirmed.
The truth of this narrative is con-
firmed by the bricks found in the
ruins of cities built during this period
of Egyptian history. The bricks were
made of clay mixed with stubble, rath.
er than the ordinary straw and baked
in the sun rather than in a fire kiln.
Pharaoh’s Method, vv. 10-15. It
must have been a severe test of faith
| for the Israelites to have had their
| hopes thus dashed and more grievous
| burdens thrust upon them. Before,
| the government furnished the neces.
sary straw, now they must get it
| themselves and at the same time keep
| up the-usual toll of bricks.
| Those who were beaten (v. 14) were
| of their own number who were held
accountable under the Egyptian task-
masters for the conduct of the whole.
Is this not suggestive of one other
than ourselves “who bore our sins in
his own body on the tree” and “by
whose stripes we are healed?”
How little we comprehend, even
with centuries of Christian history as
our guide and the inspired word as
our teacher, the full meaning of Pauls
words, “For I reckon that the suffer-
ings of this present time are not
worthy to be compared with the glory
which shall be revealed in us.” Rom.
8:18. But God is mindful of his own
and as soon as Moses and Aaron turn-
ed to him he gives them a most gra-
cious renewal of his promise and of
| the ultimate blessing, see Chapter
11l. The Summary. God's ways of
| deliverance are never easy. His peo-
ple are always slow to believe and his
enemies have a hard hearted and ter-
rible persistence in their opposition
to him and his plans. But God does
not permit this defeat, nor prevent the
accompiishment of his purposes. When
pain has done its work he makes it to
| cease. When the fire has burned out
the dross he will extinguish it. Pha-
rach esteemed human life cheaply,
how about the sweat shop of today?
“Let my people go” is the watch-word
| of the fight that is still in progress.
Israelitish oppression still survives.
No newspaper in the country has
ever had such a galaxy of brilliant
literary talent on its roster regularly
as is the case with the Pittsburg Sun-
day Dispatch at the present time.
President Wilson, no less because of
his literary attainments than because
of his high office, heads the list, and
the name of the Chief Executive is
quickley followed by such men as
Finley Peter Dunne, creator of the |
immertal Mr. Dooley; George Ade,
the man who made the fable popular;
Alfred Henry Lewis, who put Wolfville | ¢ 3 16)
on the map; O. Henry, acknowledged | evening, 30th inst., at 7-30.
as the uncrowned king of all Ameri-
can short story writers, and Frank
Carpenter, prince among travelers.
These are only the headliners, the
stars, among the hundreds of contrib-
utors of a newspaper acknowledged
to be the greatest in the land.
All these great men are giving their
best work to the Sunday Dispatch,
and in no small measure. President
Wilson is taking the readers of this
great paper into his inmost confidence
as no President has done in the history
of the Republic. Mr. Dooley is right
| now doing his very finest work. Geo.
Ade has renewed his early youth and
his new fables set those on which he
won his fame far in the shade, fasci-
nating “as those efforts undoubtedly
were. Alfred Henry Lewis tells the
story of nation-famous murders which
occurred in New York, and with it he
is telling them with the nerye and
dash which characterized his ‘‘Wolf-
ville”. tales. O. Henry, who died at
the height of his literary career, is
‘represented by Stories of the Gentle
| Grafter,”’ long cited among his very
best works. He has now come into
,a permanent place at the head of the
weil-filled ranks of short-story writers
(and ‘on this account examples of his
| work are worthy of the closest atten-
| tion of every person. Frank Carpen-
ter is writing important interviews
with big men of national prominence,
each one of them telling of vigorous
effort along some interesting line of

cent newspaper. There are many

lic estimation as the best now writing

a most rapid rate.
On that account it his absolutely
