H. "And God said. Let Us make man la
Our image, after Our likeness, and let them
kav dominion. " At ome time In the past,
rr V ' ' , ; " , .
the beginning," God created the heaven
Bod tb earth that is, lie spake them into
existence as is proved by Pa, zxxiii, 0;
Hsb. zi, 8. He muot have everything good,
lor He always doe. That He did not ideate
the earth without form and void is stated
ft las. xlv, 18. Compare the It. V. What
happened between verses 1 snd 8 to bring
about this chaos we shall know some day.
About 6,000 years ago God brought order
and beauty and fruitfulness out of the
chaos and confusion into tb space of six
efeys, as is here described. See also Ex. xr, 11.
And bow on tb sixth day He makes man
a asvs dominion over all. How He made
saaa and woman Is more fully stated in
banter ti, T, 21-25. and that be called their
am Adam is stated in chapter v, 2. The
words "Let Us" imply ths Trinity, which
fact is alno clear to a simple minded He
brew scholar in the word for God.
IT. "So God created mas in His own im
age; In the Image of God created He him;
Bale and female created He tbem." Then
this man and woman roust have been tbe
finest pair that ever walked the earth.
Whatever else is implied in this imaue of
dgbteousness and holiness of truth are in-i
eluded. How mucb more we shall know ;
Ood, it is evident from Epb. iv, 24, that
When in that bright morning of the resur
rection we Khali have been made like Him
who i tbe brightness of tbe Father's glory
and th xpress imageof lil person (IJoUn
Ml, 8; Heb. i, 8).
tS. "And God blessed them, and God said
aato to tbem, Be fruitful and multiply,
and replenish the earth and subdue it, and
kavc dominion." The blessing of tbe Lord
H msketh rich, and toil adJeth nothing
thereto (Prov. x, S3, It. V.). When in the
alxth year God commanded nis blessing on
Israel, tbere was as much produced in one
C, as ordinarily in thre years (Lev. xxv,
When Jesus blessed tbe lad's loaves
and fishes, they ted many thousands. lie
says, "Herein is My Father glorified that
7 bear mucb fruit; so shnll ye be My dls-;
doles" (John xv, 8). The time is coming !
when the last Adam will subdue all things
nto Himself, for He Is able. But now He !
Is gathering out and training the subduers,
who shall in that day have dominion with
Him. I find it helpful to pray, "Lord, in
asmuch as Thou art able to subdue all
things unto Thyself (Phil, iil, 91), subdue
sue wholly to Thyself now."
. "And God said. Behold. I have riven
yon every herb bearing seed which is upon j
ths face of all tbe earth and every tree in
the which is the fruit of a tree yielding 1
seed; to you it shall be for meat." God
would have His children at perfect rest
oncerninir fond ami mlment liin Wk. r
, big such as we wear, they had none (11, 25), I
but inasmuch a all other creatures had a j
clothing which was a part of themselves,
loubtless Adam and Eve, made in the im-
age of God, were, like God, clothed with
light (Ps. civ, 1, 2). And now here is full
trovislon for their bodies as to food. We
ave no record of flesh being eaten till after
th dsluge (chapter lx, 8), though we do not
ay that it was not eaten. But lie who fed
sinful Israel for 40 years In the wilderness ,
will always provide for His own. j
80. "And to every beast of the earth, and
to every fowl of the air, and to everything
that creepeth upon the earth wherein there
la life, I have given every green herb for
Beat and it was so." Not only man, but
beast, is provided for. These wait all upon
.Thee that Thou mayst give them thei
meat in due season (Ps. civ, 27). Behold
she fowls of the air, your Heavenly Father
feedeth tbem. Are not Ave sparrows sold
for two farthings, and not one of them is
forgotten before God (Math, vi, 26; Luke
Eli, 6)f Observe the phrase "I have given,"
and think of Bora, viii, 8& He who spared
ot His own Son, but delivered Iliin ur
for us all, how shall He not with Him
also freely give us all things?
81. "And God saw everything that He J
bad made, aud, behold, it was very good. '
And the eveuing and the morning were the 1
Sixth day." Tb Is is the seventh time that it 1
Is written, "God saw that it was good." i
God is love, and He cannot door makej
that which is not in His Bight good. He is,
good, and His mercy endureth forever (Ps. '
cxxxvi.l). He is round about us as a wall of !
ftre and will not possibly permit aught that
la not good to come to us, so we can surely
Bless the Lord at all timea (Zwh li r. lo
sxxiv, 1). In all the days it is first evening,
followed by night aud then Dooming. So
ow It is the world's night, btij the night
la far spent, and tbe day is at hand. The
morningcometh (Rom. xiii, 13; Isa. xxl, 12).
L "Thus the heavens and the earth were
finished and all thehostof them." "Thus."
Bowf Why, by the word of His mouth
CP, xxxiii, ). In chapter 1 it is written 10
times, "And God said." Now, slnco He
thus created all thlus, what is tbere He
cannot dor "Ah, Lord God, behold, Thou
hast created the heavens aud the earth by
Thy great power snd stretchrd out arm,
and t here is nothing too hard for Thee" (Jer.
Exxii, 171 If Christians, how thankful we
should be that God, who commanded the
tight to shine out of darknetts, h.ith sbiued
In our hearts to give tbe light of theknowl-1
edge of I he glory of God iu the face of Jesus '
Christ (II Cor. iv, 6). On "the hwt of

MOW TO FURNISH A PARLOR.
tssjii Baca, Madia Carta!, CaaUaaa
Have your floors for th front and
back parlor finished for ruga. Though
three or fWor rturs may be and often art
scattered about the floors of each rooms,
' one large rug gives a cosier and more
. finished look, and there is less trouble in
' keeping the floor in good condition. The
j moderate priced and d arable rugs are
the Smyrna or a rug made of good body
brosaels with a border. The coloring is
of course a matter of taste. Some of the
r 0681 ?yrnB mgs are cornea irotn ae-
sirable and very high priced eastern
rugs. If yon get one for a back parlor,
elect one that has a quiet pattern, with
tbe colors well blended.
Have the hangings between the doors
harmonise with tbe prevailing shades of
the carpet. Let them hang straight from
the poles. Have the thin curtains of
dotted muslin, of Madras, of cream white
figured in the weave or of white point
ttesprit. Make them with frills. Have
the long scarf drapery of a breadth of
China silk of a color that goes well with
your rag. Across the large window in
the front parlor have a wide window
eat, with a cushion and pillow, if not
to great an expense. Have a music
stand, one or two small tables of various
shapes, a pretty colonial rocker, two re
ception chairs of different sizes, a chair
with a high back and a broad one with a 1
Bare for a back parlor a broad couoh
covered with mohair plash or with one
of th new figured corduroys, with a
nmber Pows, or a rattan conch. ;
Select everything for comfort and wear,
bat also for good color, simple lines and
symmetry. There arc many desirable
oak rockers manufactured without up
holstery that need only a headrest at the
back. Rattan chairs are also one of the
best seleotions that can be made for a sit
ting room. You can have them in any
color and with or without cushions. Have
B round table for the center of the room.
Haw th Word "Book" Beeam Applied
It is thought that mnalin is sometimes
called "book muslin" from the peculiar
way in which it is folded in yards and
each yard doubled in again like the
leaves of a book, but this is incorrect.
The word has its origin in "Buke" (erro
neously written "Book"), a district in
India, where it was first made.
Bw Hiccoughs Should B Treated.
Hiccoughs are caused by indigestion
generally and arc expressed in a sort of
explosive and exhaustive cough, caused
by the intermittent contractions of the
larynx and diaphragm. A swallow of
cold water ia often a relief; also in chil
dren a pinch of brown sugar on the
Sprinkling water on the face is
ometimes efficacious. The shock of
water dashed in the face suddenly causes
a revulsion of feeling and an almost im
mediate stop. A baby is often relieved
by being placed on its stomach on some
one's lap; also rest against the shoulder
. ... i
in an erect position and rub
tween the shonlders. Never
child after a fit of hiccoughs under three
hours. It is surely caused by an over
loaded stomach or some incongruous
IIow to Make a Cement For Steam Pipe.
Fire parts of plaster of parts, 5 parts
yellow ocher, 10 parts litharge, 5 parts
red lead and 4 parts black oxide of man
ganese. To these powders, which should
be thoroughly mixed, a small amount of
asbestos powder and boiled oil is added.
The cement hardens in from two to fire
How to Mend Tortoise Shell.
Two broken pieces of tortoise shell
can be fixed together by filing the edges
down with a rasp till each piece has an
edge like a chisel. These are then made
to overlap each other and are held tight
ly together in a clamp or viae, after sof
tening in boiling water. Heat very care
fully, so as to avoid warping or other
wise damaging the rest of the article;
Be sure that the substance is real tor
toise shell, as the imitation is often cel
luloid or xylonite, and heat applied to
these will cause distortion, fire and pos
sibly an explosion. The imitation tor
toise shell can be cemented with acetone.
Hw to Clean Bag Carpets.
To clean rag carpets, wring a cloth
out of warm water and rub the carpet
with it, dipping the cloth in water each
time the carpet is to be rubbed. Only
may be nsed in the most soiled places.
IIow to Make Chestnut Pudding.
Boil some chestnuts for a quarter of
an hour iu plenty of water, blanch and
peel them. Pound them in a mortar
with some orango flower water, or other
favorite flavoring, and some light French
white wine. Into this beat the yolks ,
of 4 eggs and the whites of 8, some '
grated nutmeg, a little melted butter and
B pint of milk. Three gills of cream are
preferable. Sweeten to taste. Stir over
the fire in b china saucepan till thick.
Then put the mlstur into a pie dUh
lined with pull or other thin paste and r
Dak ia b fairly hot oven.

CHRISTMAS MORNING AT HOME,
THE man who said "There's nothing sure in the world but death an&
taxes " might have given a pleasant aspect to this philosophy by noting
mat wnristmas was coming, too, and pretty regular at that. '
The rise and progress of Christma9 in this country is a very interesting
subject of investigation, as showing the diverse character of America's early
settlers and the peculiar elements concerned in the development of tha features
of our present holiday season. The Virginia settlement was cradled in poverty
and was too deeply concerned with the problem of existence to celebrata any
thing. In New England the life of the Tilgrim Fathers was so hard that
statutes were easily enacted forbidding the celebration of Christmas, largely en
the ground that the day could not be spared as a time of abstinence from work.
A compromise was finally made, however, that only those who worked oa that
day should have anything to eat during the twenty-four hours.
It was by the Dutch and Germans who settled in New York later that
Christmas was first recognized to any notable extent in early times. The
Dutch and English brought the Yule log to the Christmas fireside, but it was tha
Germans, with their old Druklical traditions, who introduced evergreens and
planted the first Christmas trees on this continent. Then St. Nicholas, tha
early Christian patron saint of the young, and Santa Claus, the kindred patroa
saint among the Dutch, began to be invoked for blessings. Other elements ia
the population gradully became interested in Yuletide and the Christmas tree,
