LESSON FOR FEBRUARY 14
LESSON TUXT-I Samuel 3:1-13, 19, 20.
GOLDEN TEXT-Sptmk, Jehovah: foi
thy servant lioureth. I Samuel 3:9, H. V
Samuel was the last Judgo and th
first of tho order of prophets. Uti
nnmo means "nsked of God," and h
was dedicated to God (1:11) as a Naa
arlto. In fulfillment of his mothur'i
vow ho was brought to tho temple
when ho was a young child (1:21), Jo
BepluiB says, at twelve years of ngo.
Hannah's song of rejoicing (2:1-10) it
tho expression of a great soul and a
choice pleco of literature. Samuel
had tho advautngo of being well born,
but after studying Ell's household we
nro not so conlldont as to tho environ
ment amid which ho was placed.
I. Samuel's Vision, vv. 1-10. The
young child entered heartily Into the
temple worship and duties as directed
by tho aged priest, Eli. This man was
not faithful In giving tho people tho
word of God. "It was raro" (mnrgln)
nnd tho result was that "there was no
frequent vision" (It. V.). Tho word
Is also "precious" (v. 1; Ps. 19:9, 10),
though when It is as common as it is
in thiu land men frequently set but
llttlo Btoro by It. God will Judgo men
for such laxity even as ho Judged
Israel (Amos 8:4-G, 11, 12). A vision
Is a knowledgo of a need and of tho
resources at our command. Ell and
his sons had no vision and a pcoplo
lacking In this direction perish (Prov.
29:18). Jehovah Is ubout to mnko
known to Israel his will and in so do
ing ho passes over this Indulgent father
and chooses tho child Samuel. Teach
ableness and obedlenco nro tho chief
characteristics of childhood and theso
traits count for moro with God than
docs ngo or expcrlenco (Matt. 11:25, I
I Tim. 4:12, Matt. 21:6). Samuel had
not acquired tho conceit of youth, ho
was faithful to his duties, respectful to
his ciders and did not boast of his
accomplishments nor of tho special
revelation which camo to him. Sam
uel slept In tho holy place of tho "sa
cred tent" near Ell, for tho great
temple was not yet built. As such ho
is a typo for tho Christian (Ps. 27:4).
It was thcro that tho Lord rovealcd
himself to him (John 1:14 IL V. mar
gin). Ono of Samuel's duties as tho
special attendant of Ell was to open
tho house of God every morning, also
to tend tho sacred lamp which burned
from evening to morning (Ex. 27:20,
21). As ho attended to theso duties
God made himself known to Samuel
(v. 4). God frequently calls men and ,
they nro not nt homo but have gone
Into tho far country. Samuel know
God as every devout worshiper know
him, but had not yet received a direct
revelation, hence ho "did not yet know
Johovah." Thinking at onco of the
lirlest, Samuel ran to recelvo orders
or to render service. Had ho disre
garded tho volco ho would not In the
end have received his clear revelation.
To havo closed his ears,t turned over
for further Bleep or to havo risen hesi
tatingly would, In all probability, have
prevented any further calls (Prov.
1:24, 25, 28). God wants, for special
services, thoso who mako glad ro
I otjonso to his first call flsa. C:8: Luke
n.M.r,o, Acta n.R. Thr tln,n thn
9:59-G2; Acts 9:6). Thrco times the
call comes and thrco times Samuol
. Tho teacher needs to bo over alert
to tako advantngo of theso opportu-
nltles to unfold and enforco tho claims
of Christ and to chnlicngo an immo
jdlato decision of tho soul. Happy aro ,
thoy who llko Snmuel hear and recog
nize, ovcu though It ho a progressive
revelation, tho volco of Jehovah, nnd
Rearing, obey It. Thero Is little need
Jut present for tho audible voice, for
wo iiavo mo woru ana mo sun small
ivolco of tho Holy Spirit. Tho volco
,Samucl heard became a vision (v. 15).
II. Jehovah's Verdict, vv. 11-13, 19,
,20. Tho chapter following tells of the
.defeat of Israel, tho capture of the
'ark and the death of Ell nnd his sons.
Theso wero tho things "at which both
itho ears of ovcryono that hcareth II
'shall tingle." The word of Jehovah
'stands fast, and what ho spenk's. thai

23:19). The word of Jehovah to Sara-
uel about tho houso of 1211 was one
calculated to strike terror and silence
Into tho lad's heart Ell was not igno
rant of tho wickedness of his son!
(2:27-36). Ell learns from Samuol Jo
jhovah's message. Ell was a great and
'good man, submlsBivo to God's will
but ho was a weak man, rather than
Just piously resigned. Ho might bet
ter havo prayed for mercy and
strength to deal with his wicked sons
'However, It was too lata to change
"And Samuol grow and Jehovah wai

2:52). Jcbus also grow normallj

prophot (1) by the dedication of hie
parents and tho prayers of his mother;

of God; (3) by tho routlno of service

GREAT MAN'S DEATH
Country He Served So Well Re
members Lincoln's Work
AT TWENTY minutes past ten
o'clock Friday evening, April 14,
18G5, Abraham Lincoln was shot by
John Wilkes Dooth In the back of tho
head behind tho loft car and mortally
injured. At 22 minutes past seven
o'clock tho next morning, Saturday,
April 15, ISGj, ho died.
Thero havo been many and vast
changes since that fateful day, nnd tho
prnyer which Lincoln prayed that tho
country might bo ono again Iiub been
answered in a way that would havo re
joiced his great heart. Not an anni
versary of his birth and death has
passed since his cruel taking off op.
which somo trlbuto has not been paid
to his memory, and so it will bo to tho
end of time among genoroua Ameri
cans, wherever their residence or In
herited sentiments; for, however ho
may have been misjudged In tho con-
fUBlon nnd stress of antagonistic opin
ion, thero Is none now who does not
praise him for hla courago and his
faithfulness to hln honest convictions.
He wns born In Kentucky February
12, 1809, and died In Washington April
15, 1865, in his fifty-seventh year at
the very zenith of his powers. Tho
books are full of tho story of hla llfo
and work, but there aro still many In
teresting facts connected with him
that havo not yet been noted, notwith
standing tho Industry of thoso who
havo collected great massoB of every
thing thoy could find In any way con
nected with his llfo and death.
Mr. Lincoln, as everyono knows,
was Bhot by Booth while ho was at
tending a thentrlcal performanco at
Ford's theater in Washington. "Our
American Cousin" held the boards that
night and Laura Kcono was playing
tho part of Florence Trenchard for
the last tlmo. Sho had already per
formed tho samo part for a thousand
nights. FIvo years before she had
played tho rolo at McVicker'B theater,
In Chicago the night of tho day or
which Mr. Lincoln was nominated to
presldont by tho Republican conven
tion, In Mny, I860, and all unconscious
of the terriblo tragedy, Bhowlayed with
uncommon cleverness, and whllo yol
tho theater was ringing with lnughtci
and applause rame tho crack of the
pistol shot from tho president's hoi
that plunged tho country Into mourn
After Mr. Lincoln had been Bhot he
waB removed across tho street from
tho theater to the residence of Wil
liam Petersen, n highly respected men
chant tailor, who lived directly oppo
Bite tho playhouso, at 51 C Tenth strcoL
This houso Is still standing, as Is also
tho old Ford theater, and both are now
owned by tho government. Thero have
been few changes In tho Peterson
For 40 years Osborn II. Oldroyd
has been devoting himself to tho as
sombllng togother of an lnvnluablo
collection, In which nro Included more
than thrco thousand relics, which con
stitute, ub Ellzoboth Porter Gould has
said, "ono of tho most Interesting nnd
valunblo ever collected in behalf of
a human bolng." Tho collection con
tains 250 funeral sermons, about bov
cnty pieces of music, a thousand vol
umes relating to Lincoln, 300 portraits,
buste and medals, photographB of
Dooth, pictures of tho assassin, tho
family cradlo in which tho Lincoln
children wero rocked, an original black
locust rail split by tho young man,
then never dreaming of tho place he
was to fill In tho history of tho world;
tho family Dlble from which Lincoln's
mother read to him when ho was a
boy, nnd literally thousands of other
things In somo sort associated with
tho murdered presldont
"The First American."
As Lowell said of him, Lincoln wns
tho first Amorlcan. Whitman calls
him "tho sweotest, wisest soul of nil
my days and lands." And today ho,
tho leader In a great Civil war Is
loved and rovered by tho South ns by
tho North. Somo of tho noblest trib
utes over paid to him have been thoso
paid by tho Southerners. Ho belongs
to tho wholo nation, nnd he is tho
only man since V7ashi)gton of whom
that can bo said.
For Larner Reserve Mllltla
Tho creation of a larger reservo
mllltla and tho olllcors therefor la
auKKested by Meredith of Snundcra.
This bill would permit cltlons or tho
statu to take military oAiimln.itlon for

was successful in tacking on an
amendment to tho bill uxcmptlng also
women employed on telephone ox
changes with a total of less than 300
telephones. Friends of the femalo
labor law at llrst resented the bill as
tin encroachment upon It, but the spon
sors of the various amendinentH were
quick to explain that they were only
attempting to save tho Jobs of women
In small towns where the work was
very light and did not inquire great
attention, although It did requiro
Bomeono's constant presence. Such
work Is generally dono In a prlvalo
home, where the station agent lives nt

small exchange In her homo.
