(Copyright, 1900, by Louis Klopsch.)
The text Is II. Kings t!., 2, 3: "Je
hoeheba, the daughter of King Joram,
sister of Ahaziah. took Joash, the son
of Ahaziah, and stole him from among
the king's sons which were slain, and
they hid him, even him and his nurse,
in the bedchamber from Athaliah, so
that he was not slain. And he was
with her hid in the house of the Lord
six years."
Grandmothers are more lenient with
their children's children than they
were with their own. At 40 years of
age if discipline be necessary chas
tisement is used, but at 70 the grand
mother, looking upon the misbehavior
of the grandchild, is apologetic and
disposed to substitute confectionery
for whip. There is nothing more beau
tiful than childhood. Grandmother
takes out her pocket handkerchief and
wipes her spectacles and puts them on
and looks down into the face of her
mischievous ami rebellious descendant
and says, "1 don't think he meant to
do It. Let him oft this time. I'll be
responsible for his behavior In the fu
ture." My mother, with the second
generation around her, a boisterous
crew, said one day: "I suppose they
ought to be disciplined, but I can’t do
It. Grandmothers are not iK to bring
up grandchildren.” But here In my
text we have a grandmother of a dif
ferent type.
I have been at Jerusalem, where the
occurrence of the text took place, and
the whole scene came vividly before
me while I was going over the site of
the ancient temple and climbing the
towers of the king's palace. Here in
the text it is old Athaliah, the royal
murderess. She ought to have been
honorable. Her father was a king. |
Her husband was a king. Her
son was a king. And yet we find
her plotting for the extermination of
the entire royal family, Including her ]
own grandchildren. The executioners' J
knives are sharpened. The palace is
red with the blood of princes and. prin
cesses. On all sides are shrieks and
hand* thrown up and struggle and
death groan. No mercy! Kill, kill!
But while the Ivory floors of the pal- !
ace run with carnage and the whole
land Is under the shadow of a great
horror a fleet-footed woman, a clergy- j
man's wife, Jehosheba by name,
stealthily approaches the Imperial
nursery, seizes upon the grandchild j
that had somehow as yet escaped mas
Bacre, wraps It up tenderly but In
haste, snuggles It against her, flias
down the palace stairs, her heart In
her throat lest she be discovered in
this compassionate abduction. Get
her out of the way as quick as you
can, for she carries a precious burden,
even a young king. With this youth
ful prize she presses into the room of
the ancient temple, the church of olden
time, unwraps the young king and puts
him down, sound asleep as he is and
unconscious of the peril that has been
threatened, and there for six years he
is secreted in that church apartment.
Meanwhile old Athaliah smacks her
lips with satisfaction and thinks that
all the royal family are dead. But the
six years expire, and it is time for
young Joash to come forth and take
the throne and to push back into dis
grace and death old Athaliah.
The arrangements are all made for
political revolution. The military come
and take possession of the temple,
swear loyalty to the boy Joash and
stand around for his defense. See
the sharpened swords and the bur
nished shields! Everything Is ready.
New Joash, half affrighted at the arm
ed tramp of his defenders, scared at
the vociferation of his admirers, Is
brought forth in full regalia. The
scroll of authority Is put In his hands,
the coronet of government Is put on
his brow, and the people clapped anil
waved and huzzaed und trumpeted.
"What is that?" asked Athalian.
"What Is that sound over iu the tem
ple?" And idj* files to see, und on
her way they meet her and say. "Why
haven't you heard? You thought you
had slain all the royal family, hut
Joash has come to light." Then the
royal murderess, frantic with rage,
grabbed her mantle and tore it to tat
ters and cried until ahe foamed at the
I mouth: "You have no right to crown
tny grandson You have no right to
take the government from my shoul
ders. Treason, treason'”
S\U!|e she stood there crying th;»'
the military started for h* r urre.t, an I
the took a short cut through a back
door of the temple and ran through the
royal stables, but the battleases of the
military fell on her In the barnyard,

Perpetuity of Hie Hilda.
How many Individual and organ
ized attempts have been made to ex
terminate that Bible? Have its ene
mies done It? Have they exterminat
ed the American Bible society? Have
they exterminated the British and For
eign Bible society? Have they exter
minated the thousands of Christian in
stitutions whose only object it Is to
multiply copies of the Scriptures and
spread them broadcast around the
world? They have exterminated un
til instead of one or two copies of the
Bible In our houses we have eight or
ten, and we pile them up In the cor
ners of our Sabbath school rooms and
send great boxes of them everywhere.
If they get on as well as they are now
going on In the work of extermination.
1 do not know but that our children
may live to see the millennium. Yea,
if there should come a time of perse
cution In which all the known Bibles
of the earth should be destrojwtd, all
these lamps of life that blaze In our
pulpits and In our families extinguish
ed, in the very day ttiat infidelity and
sin should be holding Jubilee over the
universal extinction, there would be
in some closet of a backwoods church
a secreted copy of the Bible, and this
Joash of eternal literature would come
out and come up and take the
throne, and the Athaliah of Infidelity
and persecution would fly out the back
door of the palace and drop her miser
able carcass under the hoofs of 'he
horses of the king's stables. You can
not exterminate Christianity. You
cannot kill Joash.
The second thought I hand you from
my subject is that there are oppor- j
tuuitles In which we may save royal
life. You know that profane history !
Is replete with stories of strangled
monarchs and of young princes who
have been put out of the way. Here
is the story of a young king saved.
How Jehosheba, the clergyman’s wife,
must have trembled as she rushed into j
the imperial nursery and snatched up
Joash! How she hushed him lest
by his cry he hinder the escape! Fly
with him, Jehosheba! You hold in
your arms the cause of God and good
government. Fail, and he is slain.
Succeed, and you turn the tide of the
world's history in the right direction.
It seems as If between that young king
and his assassins there is nothing but
the frail arm of a woman. But why
should we spend our time in praising j
this bravery of expedition when God j
asks the same thing of you and me?
All around us the imperiled children
of a great king. They are born of Al- |
mighty parentage and will come to a ;
throne or a crown if permitted. But j
sin, the old Athaliah, goes forth to the
massacre. Murderous temptations are j
out for the assassination. Valens, the j
emperor, was told that there was j
somebody in his realm that would |
usurp his throne and that the name of
the man should begin with the letters
T, H, E, O, D, and the edict went forth
from the emperor’s throne, "Kill ev
erybody whose name begins with T, H,
E, O, V.” And hundreds and thou
sands were slain, hoping by that mas
sacre to put an end to that one usurp
er. But sin is more terrific in its de
nunciation. It matters not how you
spell your name, you come under the
knife, under its sword, under its doom,
unless there he some omnipotent relief
brought to the rescue. But, blessed
lie God. there is such a thing as deliv
ering a royal soul. Who will snatch
away Joash?

lie before they teach them the value of
truth. They wait until their children
swear before they teach them the im
portance of righteous conversation.
They wait until their children are all
wrapt up In this world before they tell
them of a better world. Too late with
your prayers. Too late with your dis
cipline. Too late with your benedic
tion. You put all care upon your
children between twelve and eighteen.
Why do you not put the chief care be
tween four and nine? It Is too late
to repair a vessel when it has got out
of the drydocks. It Is too late to save
Joash after the executioners have
broken In. May God arm us all for
this work of snatching royal souls
from death to coronation.
Work of Foul Savin?.
Can you imagine any sublimer work
than this soul saving? That was what
(lushed Paul's cheek with enthusiasm;
that was what led Munson to risk his
life amid Bornesian cannibals; that
was what sent I)r. Abeel to preach un
der the consuming skies of China; that
was what gave courage to Phocas in
the third century. When the military
officers came to put him to death for
Christ’s sake, ho put them to bed that
they might rest while he himself went
out and in his own garden dug his
grave and then came back and said,
"I am ready.” But they were shocked
at tlte idea of taking the life of their
host. He said, "It is the will of God
that I should die,” and he stood on
the margin of his own grave, and they
beheaded him. You say it is a mania,
a foolhardiness, a fanaticism. Rather
would I call it a glorious self-abnega
tion, the thrill of eternal satisfaction,
the plucking of Joash from death and
raising him to coronation.
The third thought I hand to you is
that the church of God is a good hid
ing place. When Jehoshelm rushes into
the nursery of the king and picks up
Joash, what shall she do with him?
Shall she take him to some room in
the palace? No, for the official des
peradoes will hunt through every
nook and corner of that building.
Shall she take him to the residence of
some wealthy citizen? No, that citi
zen would not dare to harbor the fu
gitive. But she has to take him some
where. She hears the cry of the mob
in the streets; she hears the shriek of
the dying nobility; so she rushes with
Joash into the room of the temple,
Into the house of God, and there she
puts him down. Sue knows that Atha
liah and her wicked assassins will
not bother the temple a great deal.
So they are not apt to go very much
to church, and so she sets down Joash
in the temple. There he will be hear
ing the songs of the worshipers year
after year; there he will breathe the
odor of the golden censers; in that
sacred spot he will tarry, secreted un
til the six years have passed and he
come to enthronement.
Tlie licit III<1 litjf I’Jare.
Would God that we were all as wise
as Jehosheba and knew that the
church of God is the beat hiding place!
Perhaps our parents took tis there in
early days. They snatched us away
from the world and hid us behind the
baptismal fonts and amid the Bibles
and psalm books. O glorious intlos
ure! We have been breathing the
breath of the golden censers all the
time, and we have seen the Lamb on
the altar, and we have handled the
vials In which are the prayers of all
saints, and we have dwelt under the
wings of the cherubim. Glorious in
closure! When my father and mother
died and tiie property was settled up,
there was hardily anything left. But
they endowed us with a property
worth more than any earthly posses
sion because they hid us in the temple.
And when days of temptation have
come upon my soul I have gone there
for shelter, and wheu assaulted of sor
rows I have gone there for comfort,
and there I mean to live. 1 want, like
Joash, to stay until coronation.
Chrlutlan Aaicm I 11Inn.
Ah, when you pass away—aud It
will not be long before you do—when
you pass away, It will be a satisfaction
to see your children in Christian soci
ety. Yon want to have them sitting ut
the holy sacraments. You want them
mingling In Christian associations.
You would like to have them die In
the sacred precincts. When you are
on your dying bed and your little ones
come to take mi your last word and
you look into their bewildered faces,
you will want to leave tin m under the
church's benediction. I do not cara

to a man of the world; "Your son

ramble of the IMcIi Man and tl»®
1. "Ami he said aleo unto Ills disciples."
The "also" Implies that these words were
spoken at the same gathering at the
Pharisee's table, w here Jesus had spoken
the three parables of the Inst chapter.
(14.) "A certain rich man.” This para
ble In rather an Illustrative narrative.
“Which had a steward.” An agent, or
factor, the manager of hlN estates, "ell*
triiNteil with large discretionary powers.
"The same was accused unto him that
he had wasted (It. V., 'was wasting'') his
2. "How Is It (It. V.. 'what Is this') that
1 hear.** In it true? "Give an account."
Make your statement, and you will show
whether the accusation In true. "Then
the steward said within himself, What
shall I do?" He did not repent, but only
sought the shrewdest way of escaping
out of the trap. "I cannot (lit., 'have not
strength to') dig." "Yet manual labor
was all thut honestly lay between him
und utter destitution." "To beg I am
ashamed." It would be too great a deg
radation from his high position.
i. “I ain resolved.” "1 know. I have
found out, I have It at Inst”; us tf the
bright Idea had Just struck him.—Bo
ltruce. "That . . . they this lord's
debtors) may receive me Into their
houses." And out of gratitude, or from
fear of exposure, give him a home, or
provide one out of part of the dishonest
gains he had enabled them to acquire. .
B. "Bo he called every one," All to
gether. or, more probably. each one by
himself, so that the others would not
know what he did for any one. This
would be mueh the safer way. "How
mueh owest thou?" How much Is your
unsettled account?
f>. "An hundred measures (baths) of
oil." Olive oil from the olive orchards.
A "bath” Is about nine gallons, and worth
ubout ir>0.—int. Crtt. Com. "Take thy
bill." Lit., "writings..rhe document
In the steward’s hands, showing the obli
gation."—Itev. Com. "Quickly." Lest
some one come In und detect the fraud.
"And write fifty." The steward, having
done the business before, would appa
rently have the right to change the bill.
7. "An hundred measures of wheat."
Measures here Is not the same word as In
v. 6, but Is the "homer" equal to 10
baths, of 25 quarts each. I. e., 350 quarts,
or 11 bushels, so that the whole debt was
about 1,100 bushels of wheat, worth $500
to $i2)o, according to Int. Orlt. Com —Bo
Cambridge Bible, and others. But the
bath and homer varied at different times,
and the Bible dictionaries vary. "Take
thy bill, and write fourscore.” He de
ducted 20 measures, or 220 bushels.
*. "And the (his) lord.” The lord whose
steward this man was. "Commended the
unjust (unrighteous) steward, because he
had done wisely." Hhrewdly, prudently.
The lord had expected that his steward
would be dishonest; now he Is amused at
the talent, dexterity, Hnd cleverness
which the man shows In escaping from his
illltlculty. (S-3.) "For the children of
this world.” This Is the comment of Jesus
upon the action of the steward and the
praise of his master. "Are In their gen
eration wiser." Bather for, or towards, In
re.ferenco to their own generation, the af
fairs of this world, their dealing with o'It
er worldly men, In reference to worldly
things, but they arc wiser Id attaining
their Inferior ends, use more skill, more
Ingenuity, more far-sightedness and far
reaching plans, shrewder dealings "than
the children of light." Those wtio have
received the light of heaven and of God,
ar.- walking In the light of truth und the
... I . i 4 b .. . >
9. "Make to yourselves friends (by
means) of the mammon of unrighteous
ness." -Mammon In the Syriac means
money. It represents wealth, gains,
money. It Is called the mammon of un
righteousness, either because It refers to
wealth even when gained unrighteously
(Bruce), as was the ease with many of
bis hearers; or because It tempts to un
righteousness, Is the frequent cause of
fraud, Is full of danger. "That, when ye
fall." Die and can no longer use your
wealth, or when you lose what you have
gained, as often happens. "They may
receive you Into everlasting habitations."
Those whom you have helped will wel
come you In heaven. Heaven will be
sweeter, brighter, happier to you on ac
count of them. Even In this world, giv
ing to them brings you Into the spirit of
heaven, nnd gives you a foretaste of the
future blessedness. It enlarges thp soul.
It Increases forever the capacity for en
joyment. It brings one Into Beulah land
and shows visions from the Delectable
in. "Ho that Is faithful In that which
Is least." Dost It should seem strange that
so much Importance Is attached to the
proper use of perishing and unrighteous
wealth, remember the great principle:
"He that Is faithful," etc. I-cast refers
to worldly possessions and opportunities.
"Is faithful also In much." Faithfulness
Is a permanent characteristic and runs
through everything. "He that Is unjust,"
etc. This Is the reverse of the other pic
ture. These are the ones that did not
stand the test.
11. "If therefore.” Here Jesus makes an
application of the principle just stated.
Faithful In the unrighteous mammon.”
The riches of this world. "Who will com
mit to your trust the true riches?” Of
spiritual and heavenly tilings, either In
this world or the neat.
12. "Faithful In that which Is another
man’s." The worldly things Clod lias en
trusted to you as stewards. "Who shall
give you that which Is your own?" Tho
true riches, which arc u part of your liv
ing, enlarged talents, noble character,
great ability, heavenly wisdom, the
graces of life The steward of the para

ment will bo used as a bicycle room.
The first floor will be used as a gnll

vate class and dining room. T he meet
ing rooms will take up the tenth floor,

What to Wear, Uew to Act, When to
Arrive and Depart,
In making an afternoon call a man
usually leaves his overcoat, umbrella
or stick, list and gloves in the hall
before entering the drawing-room. He
may, If he choose, carry his hat and
stick Into the room at a first or formal
call, if it is to be very brief, except
at a reception. He removes his right
glove before offering to shake bands.
Ho never offers his hand first, but waits
the Invltatio of his hostess. If she
Is behind her tea-table, she may not
rise to greet him, hut gracefully in
eludes him In the conversation and \
perhaps bows her adieus. It Is an evi
dence of good breeding to enter and
leave a room unobtrusively. It is not
usual to Introduce a guest upon his
entrance to more than one other. Ho
never shr.kes hands when presented to
a woman, but always when Introduced
to a man. Ho may leave upon the ar
rival of other guests after fifteen min
utes, turning his back as little as pos
sible upon the company and bowing
comprehensively at the door. A woman
never accompanies a man to the vesti
bule, but takes leave of him in tho
drawing-room. It is wo longer cus
tomary to press one’s guest to call
again. The lady always gives the In
vitation to call. A man must not go
beyond an evident pleasure in her so
ciety by way of suggestion. Sometimes
a woman friend will exert heraelf for
him. The sooner the call follows tho
invitation the greater the compliment.
A fortnight Is the usual Interval.—Mrs.

Attempt to flrvek Hoodoo Spell pjr Turn
ing It I'pvtde Down.
mar 6b or the iaj» Angeles police
force would seem to be a hoodoo. The
first officer who wore star 66 was a
man named Maguire He had worn
It only a few months when a distress
ing combination of business and fam
Uy troubles drove him to suicide. They w
found him one morning lying on the
■ward, with a bullet hole In his breast.
After Maguire's untimely end no one
appears to have worn it regularly for
several months. Then It came to be
the badge of John Craig. Craig was a
handsome man, tall and attractive. He
married a daughter of Hunter, a pi
oneer living out near Troplco. For a
time Craig was prosperous. Then al
cohol sent him to the dogs at a break
neck speed, Even Ills wifo. after In
finite endurance, had to leave him and
seek refuge, with her children, In her
father’s house. For a while Craig
amused himself with annoying her
pettily, until one day he borrowed
enough money to got drunk and buy
two revolvers. Ho drove out to Hunt
er's house, shot his wife dead as she
was approaching the screen door at
which he stood; then turned another
revolver on her brother, Inflicting
frightful wounds, from which he will
never recover. The madman then
tamped Into hts buggy and drove at
top speed to the town house of the
Hunters on Buena Vista street, found
the old man Hunter and his aged wife
sitting on the front porch, and shot
them both dead lr their chairs. From
Craig, star 66 teems to have been
transferred to 3'ephenson, ono of the
best-known and most popular of the
older officers. He wore It until a se
vere and seemingly Incurable Inflam
matory rheumatism carried him onto
the retired list long beforo his time l
and left him a crippled pensioner.
After Stephenson was retired the stai
of misfortune was given to Fowler.
What happened to Fowler Is recent
history. After a multitude of troubles
with the police commission he still
clung to the nnlucky star, and one ^
night thru# officers -without right,
Fowler assert*-by force took it away
from him and locked him up. Now
he Is suing them for heavy damages.
The officers up at the pollco station are
now handing star 66 around, but no
one la wtlllug to admit that he Is afraid
to wear It. Nevertheless they all seem
a bit auueamtsh about the thing! The
other day an officer was wearing the
star upside down, with the "66" re
versed He appeared to be No. #9.
Will that charm away the hoodoo of
•tar 66?—Loa Angeled Times.
