"WHY SHOULD I USE
"There Is nothing tho matter with
tny ekln, and I thought Cuttcura Soap
wns only for skin troubles." True. It
is for skin troubles, but Its great mis
sion lo to prevent bkln troubles. For
more than n generation Us dcllcato
emollient and prophylactic properties
Slave rendered it tho standard for this
purpose, while Its extreme purity and
refreshing fragrance give to it all tho
advantnges of tho best of toilet soaps.
It is also Invaluable in keeping tho
hands soft and white, tho hair llvo
and glossy, and tho scalp frco from
dandruff and Irritation.
While Its first cost Is a few cents
moro than that of ordinary toilet
soaps, it Is prepared with such caro
and of such materials, that it wears
to a wafer, often outlasting several
cakes of other soap, and making its
use, in practice, most economical.
Cutlcura Soap Ik sold by druggists and
dealers everywhere, but the truth of
these claims may bo demonstrated
without cost by sending to "Cutlcura,"

Events tread upon tho heels of events
in the lifo of Jesus, especially diirltu;
his early Galilean ministry, and nono
depict these events moro graphically
than St. Mark, who is presenting us a
picture of him as a servant.
Jesus had been upon a preaching
tour and now returns to tho town of
Capernaum. As soon as It was notaed
about that he was nt his homo n
crowd quickly gathered about tho
door. So great was tho crowd that
thero wns no longer any room in tho
bouse nor about the door, that is tho
crowd was so dense that lato comers
could not look in to sco nnd hear the
That many of these were attrncted
by his popularity thcio is no doubt,
but it gave Jesus nn opportunity to
rpeak and preach tho word which ho
wns quick to seize upon. "Ho preached
Hie Word unto them." Is this not u
lugpcstlon for teachers? especially of
foino of the adult classes.
If your class Is a Iliblrj class stick to
your text or elso change your name.
1 he npnstlcs followed his example In

The result of this teaching nnd

and should bo an encouragement .o

Put that it reveals sin nlbo.

Whilo all sickness may not bo tho

rower and better kingdom thero Is to
Ytt no moro pain nor sorrow. Jesus
tI,ercfore said first of nil, "Child, thy

and pathos as ho uttered these word?.

Human reasoning can dlsprovo God,
but tho deductions of tho intellect can
not satisfy tho cry of human hearts

Tho greatest lesson for tis to learn
at this point 1b that the forgiveness of
sin is greater in tho estimation of God
than tho relief of human sufferings.

Klrk-I'atrlck, near Glasgow, In Scot

The saint was born nbout 372; was
a cnptlvo and a slave of the king of
Dalaradln, in Ireland, from 38S to 39C;
went to Gaul and was thero ordnlned
priest; wns consecrated bishop and
eent to Ireland as missionary In 432,
and died nt Saul, near Strangford
Lough, County Down, Ulster, where
many years before ho had founded bis
church, March 17, 4C0, tho day now
sacred to his memory.
Ireland wns then occupied by n
great number of potty tribes, most of
whom were evangelized by Patrick. So

Ireland was known In subsequent cen
turies as the "island of saints and
The method employed wns thnt of
dealing cautiously and gently with the
old paganism of the people. Tho chief

Of St. Patrick himself much thnt hns
been related Is fabulous, but his au
tobiographical confession nnd his epis
tle to CorotlcuR, both of which nro un
questionably genuine, reveal a devout,
simple minded man, and n most dis
creet nnd energetic missionary.
In his epistle ho states that he was
of noble birth and that his father,
Cnlphurnlcus, wns a Roman dcctilro.
His Mother, Conchessa, or Conccls,
was the sister of St. Martin of Tours.
The family of tho saint is nfllrmcd
by the earliest authorities to have
belonged to Britain, but whether tho
term refers to Great Britain or Brit
tany or other parts of Franco is not
Some of tho quaint stories told in
Ireland about St. Patrick would make
the traveler imagine that tho saint
I visited tho Island for the benefit of
i witty guides, or to promoto mirth In

thnt tho subject of these stories for 1C
1 centuries, at countless hearths, has

and considering the versatility of the

i thero remains respecting tho Baint n

It could not bo otherwise. Such a

tho tlmo, aro found in boiiiq nnclent
lives of St. Patrick, tho most valu
able of which Is tho "Tripartita Life,"
ascribed by Colgen to tho century aft
er tho saint's death. Tho work wus
lost for ranny centuries, but two cop
ies of It wero rediscovered, ono of
which has beon recently translated by
an eminent Irish scholar, Mr. Hon

tho "Trlpnrtlto Lifo" nro neither tho
most marvelous nor tho most Interest

Whether regarded from the religious
or philosophic point of view, few
things can bo more Instructive than
the picture which it delineates of bik-
Nearing Realization at Last
mnn nature In thp porlod of crltlcnl
transition and tho dawning of the re
ligion of penco upon a race barbaric,
but far, indeed, from savage.
That warlike race regarded It doubt
loss as a notublo cruelty when the new
faith discouraged an amusement bo
popular bb battle. But In many re
Hpctts they were In sympathy with tho
faith. That race wiib one of which
the affections as well as tho passions
retained nn uubluutod urdtir. and
when nature Is stronger nnd less cor
rupted It must feel the need of homo
thing higher than Itself, Its Interpreter
and its supplement. It prized the
fninlly ties, like the Germans record
ed by Tacitus, anil It could but have
been drawn to Christianity.
Warlike as It was, It wan unbounded J
also in loyalty, generosity, and self-sac-
rlllce; it was not, therefore, untouched
by the records of martyrs, tho princi
ples of self-sacrltlce. or the doctrine of
a great sacrifice. It loved the chil
dren and tho poor, and St. Patrick
made tho former the excmpllerB of the
faith and the Intter the eminent Inher
itors of tho kingdom.
In the main, Institutions and tradi
tions of Ireland wero favorablo to
Christianity, and tho people received
tho Kospel gladly. It nppenled to them
and prompted ardent natures to find
their rest in spiritual things. It hnd
created among them nn excellent ap
preciation of tho beautiful, tho es
thotlc and tho pure.
Tho rapid growth of learning, nB
well as piety, In tho thrco centuries
succeeding tho conversion of Ireland
proved that tho country had not been
until then without a preparation for
Perhaps nothing human had so
large nn Influence In the conversion
of tho Irish as tho personal character
of our apostle. By nature, by grace,
nnd by providential training he had
been especially fitted for his task.
Everywhere wo can trace tho might
and sweetness that belonged to his
character; the versatile mind, yet
tho simple heart; tho varying tact, yet
tho fixed resolvo; the laigo deslro tak
ing counsel from all, yet the minute fo
llcltudo for each; tho llery zeal, yet
tho geutlo temper; tho skill In using
moans, yet tho rellanco In God nlone;
tho rendlness In action, with a willing
ness to wnit; tho habitual sclf-pos'
session, yet tho outburst of an In
spiration, which raised him ubovo him
self tho abiding consciousness of nu
authority an authority in him, but
not of him, nnd yet tho ever present
humility. Above all, thero burned In
him that boundless lovo which scorns
tho main constituent of apostolic, char
acter. It wns lovo for God; but It was
lovo for man also, nn Impassioned
love, a parental compassion. Wrong
and Injustice to the poor he resented
nB an injury to God.
A just man, Indeed, was St. Patrick;
with purity of nnturn like tho patri
archs; a truo pilgrim llko Abraham;
gontlo nnd forgiving of heart llko
Moses; a praiseworthy psalmist llko
David; an emulator of wisdom llko
Solomon; a chosen vessel for pro
claiming truth like tho Apostlo Paul;
n man of grace nnd of knowledge of

a lion in strength nnd power; a dove
In gentleness and humility; a servant
of labor In tho service of Christ; a
