NOT TO BE CAUGHT NAPPING
Uncle Tobe Lived Up to His Reputa
tlon and the Doctor Lost
Thoro lives in a certain Vermont
town a quaint old character known
as "Undo Tobe," who is so con
norvativo of action and speech that it
is most dlfllcult at times to got any
thing definite from him. Undo Tobo,
like tho Father of His Country, has tho
reputation of never having told a llo,
and in addition ho is so cautious of
statement that ho has never been
known to tell an innocent untruth.
On one occasion his doctor, In con
versation with friends touching Uncle
Touo'b characteristics, ventured to laj
a bet of five dollars that ho could cause
Undo Tobo to toll what wasn't bo. A
neighbor promptly took tho bet.
Tho doctor walked into Undo Tobc'e
house next morning, and whilo ho was
talking with the old man, the neighbor
who had taken the bet drove up to tho
gato. Undo Tobe wont to see what he
wanted, nnd then tho doctor, as he had
agreed to do, went out the back door
and hid tn tho barn.
"Good morning, Tobe," said tho vis
itor, "ia tho doctor in your house?"
"Ho was there when I caino out,"
said Uncle Tobe.

The length of ttmo Ice may be kept
depends upon tho character of insula
tion provided. This will naturally i
vary with the location of tho ice house
and the method of construction. An-,
other important factor will be tho cot
of construction. ,
Tho simplest typo of ice preserva
tion consists in stacking tho enkes In '
a compact mass on a well-drained slt.
as well protected as possible by nat
ural or artificial barriers from sun
nnd wind, nnd covering the mass with i
Bawdust, shavings, fodder, marsh hay, '
or any other good insulating material, i
Such a crudo method Is not to be roc-
ommended except as a temporary
makeshift for Ice which Is to be used
early in the season.
An Inexpensive Ice House for North
An Inexpensive ice house that will
give satisfaction In places where tho
temperaturo approximates that of
New York City and localities to tho
north may bo constructed as follows:
As a site for the structure choose a
well-sheltered location convenient to
the place where the bulk of tho Ice
will be used during the season. If
tho area Is not well drained naturally,
grade the surface bo that no surfaco
water can ever flow into or through
the building and bo that tho water
from tho melting of tho Ice will bo
quickly disposed of. In soma in
stances it may be necessary to pro
vldo tile drains laid 15 or 18 Inches
below the surface to caro for thlB
Having properly provided against
water, both from without nnd from
within tho ice house, Bet a lino of
squared or flattened poles four feet
npartf bo as to form a square of the
dimensions desired. The height of
the poles should bo tho same as tho
length of the side of the squaro, if
the greatest economy of space and
the best keeping conditions for tho lco
aro desired, i. c., a building 14 feet
squaro should be 14 feet high. A
house of this size will provide storago
for a cube of ice llxllxll feet, which,
without allowance for voids, is equiva
lent to about thirty-eight tons. (A
cubic foot of ice weighs approximate
ly 58 pounds, and ono ton of lco oc
cupies nearly thlrty-fivo cubic feet.) To
comploto tho lco house, cut tho posts to
a uniform height and nail a double 2x1
inch or 2xC inch plato on top of them.
Tho sides may bo Inclosed by board
ing both lnsldo nnd outside with
rough lumber. To givo a neat outsldo
appearance tho outsldo bonrda may
rbe planed and ship-lapped, or ship
lap siding may bo placed over tho
rough sheathing. The spaco between
tho two board walls may or may not
bo packed with shavings or sawdust.
If packed, tho packing material should
be perfectly dry. Tho roof may bo
either a simple oven-span one-third
pitch roof, with the gables boarded up,
or n hip roof.
In order that the house may bo filled
without unnecessary labor a continu
ous door should be provided in tho
middle of one end. The door should
be made in two or threo sections, and
ns the house is filled, loose planks of
proper length should bo at hand to
place acrosB the opening of tho door
to hold tho packing material In place

Tho ico must bo placed on a bed of

material at least 15 Inches deep, and

history of tho chosen people- and fol

der Saul, David and Solomon, and tho
divided kingdom in tho times of Eli

tho tlmo of Daniel during tho enp
tlvity. I. Another Generation, vv. 7-10.
During tho days of Joshua Israel
Borved Jehovah, but his Influence did
not lant long after his death. Ever
nnd anon God must needs ralso up
a JoBhua to lead IiIb church. Wo
havo nnothor "Joshua" Jesus who
Is over with his peoplo and wo do
not need any earthly leader (Ps. 02:5;
Phil. 2:12). Still God Ib working
through humon agents and In every
crisis raises tip his spirit-clothed
leaders. No doubt this "another gen
eration" honored Joshua nB a hero
but they did not follow In his obedi
onco to Jehovah. It Is easy to dis
miss God'n mighty deeds among mon
by calling them myths and traditions,
or to deny tho "accuracy of tho rec
ords." Doubtle8B the Israelites felt
their obligations to their neighbors
and fellow-tribesmen, but thoy loat a

8ln of Idolatry.
II. They forsook the Lord, w.
11:13. Backsliding Israel Is a prov
erb. Over and again there was a re
turn to true worship and just as
often a forsaking. For conturicB Jo
hovah bore with, forgave, restored
and punlBhcd this "Btlffncckcd" peo
ple, until tho final overthrow and cap
tivity burned into their consciousness
tho sin of Idolatry. The reason for
this waB their disobedlenco In not
putting out of tho land "tho gods of
tho peoples that wero round about
them." Liberality of this sort always
results in spiritual ruin. A nation's
IdenlB about God not alone determine
Its moral Btatus but eventually Its
physical nnd temporal welfare as well.
Their way was not evil In tholr own
Bight and doubtless thoy wore con
sidered very progressive, and their
courso nn evidence of greater wisdom
than that or their fathers, but it
wob "evil in tho sight of the Lord."
Wo do not understand that theso
Israelites took up the worship of
Daal, the sun god, with all of its
abominations at onco, but rather
sought a combination, a compromise
worship, which of course led to tho
Inevitable forsaking of God. Verse 12
indicates tho baso Ingratltudo of
such a course for ho it was "which
brought them out of tho land of
Egypt" (TittiB 2:14; 2 Pot 2:1).
III. The Anger of the Lord, w.
14, 15. There Is no anger like that of

Justice, holiness and purity and that
God can not look upon iniquity (Hab.

men who felt tho bitterness of the
distress of their nation. God keeps
to tho lotter his promises, both of
blessing and of punishment, but "In

Judges had higher aspirations than
simply to Judge, for thoy "saved" tho
people. Wo who llvo in this present

leaders of tho people had a dlfllcult
task Is BUggcated by vorBo 17. Tho

fessing and forsaking of evil. Those
Judges were God-endowed and did not
prostitute their gifts. They were God
led, saw Israel's need and had cour
age, faith and zeal enough to show
Israel that tho first thing they needed
to do was to forsake the evil and re
turn to a life of obedience to God.
Their equipment was in that "tho
Lord was with tho Judgo" (v. 18).
Notlco that God was with thoso whom
,he "raised up." Of course not all
of tho time, nor all of tho land at
