When gavfcJa fell j in the house and
senate signalizing tho adjournment
they marked the close of halt' of Presi
dent Wilson's administration, the first
under domination of tho democratia
party since 18. Strenuous scenes
enlivened tho fading hours devoted
chiefly to completing the appropria
tions for subsistence to tho govern
ment. Two important measures, the
postoffico and Indian supply trills,
failed in the final legislative cruph
after desperate efforts had been made
to save them. In tho emergency occa
sioned by their failure, joint resolu
tions were passed and signed by the
president continuing in force appro
priatlona for tho present year.
In tho senate soveral members, long
prominent national figures, among
them Senators Root and Burton,
stepped back into private life as the
curtain fell. In the house, Democratio
Leader Underwood said good-bye, to
sit in tho next senate, and three score
or morq members retired.
In the houso the last hour was de
voted to tributes to Speaker Clark,
Representative Underwood and Re
publican Leader Mann.
While tired senators and represen
tatives were devotlg their energies to
final essentials, President W.llsou
spent tho timo In his room at the capi
tal surrounded by members of his
cabinet, signing the last fruits of leg
islation. Tho president found time in
the midst of this task to greot sena
tors and representatives, and ho made
the occasion ontiroly one of congratu

In order' to repay Israel's victory un
dor Jcpthali, K'nhash tho Ammonltu do
manded tho right eyo of those beslogec
in Jabi'sh In Gllcad, knowing that tlu
left eye would bo hid by their shield!
and they would thus bo incapable ol
warfare. For Israel to make any cov
enant with the Ammonites was con
trnry to Cod's commands (Hx. 23: 111!;
I. The Cry of Jabesh, vv. 1-3. This
event probably occurred ubout a month
after tho previous lesson. It was a
proud, haughty demand made of thesu
Israelites. Exhausted and hopeless,
they had offered to become servants in
order to live. So today wo frequent
ly find men willing to compromise
with the world and tho devil, who only
hold them in derision and contempt
(v. 2). Compromising Christians nro
nlwayn blind leaders of tho blind (Mntt.
15:14; 0:22). Tho demand of Knhash
would also bring reproach upon Israel,
yet this samo king afterwards showed
kindness to David (II Samuel 10:2).
History records that Emperor Basil
II actually sent nn army of 14,850
sightless men back to the king of Bul
garia, who died of grief and horror.
II. The Conquest of Amnrion, vv. 4
11. Nahash granted the request for
a seven days' respite. Hero was Saul's
opportunity wrongs to bo righted and
peoplo to bo saved. Saul had held his
peaco sluco being anointed by Samuel,
employing his timo in everyday toil
and duties (v. 5), for tho messengers
did not Hnd Saul at homo Idlo. Tho
tidings of this insult were told to tho
peoplo who lifted up their voices and
wept. (v. 4). Tho news of this threat
ened calamity reached Saul's cars and
his conduct effcctunlly put to sllenco

did not, in his own strength, under
take to relievo Jabesh, for "the Spirit
of God came upon him" (v. C; seo also
Judges 3:10; 11:29; 13:25; Luko 24:
49; Acts 10:38). This moved Saul to
anger, not alone at such an evidonce
of cruolty, but moro at tho contempt
Nahash had for God and his people.
Saul associated himself with Samuel,
'.ho man of God, and summoned tho na
tion of Israel to his side.
Tho Holy Spirit gave Saul clear as
suranco of a call from God, nnd ho re
sponded with unquestioned faith
(Rom. 8:31). Tho peoplo responded

In tho present age. They nil resorted
to Bczek, west of tho Jordan. Tho
messengers returned bearing a mes
sage having two meanings (v. 10), and
that helped to kcop Nahash ignorant
of Saul's actions on the other eldo of
tho river. Dividing his army into com
panies Saul attacked the enemy "in
tho morning watch," nnd completely
overwhelmed them and put them to
rout. As tho Ammonites had refused
to show any mercy, they in turn wero
judged unworthy of mercy (v. 11, bco
also James 2:13; Matt. 7:2).
III. The Crowning of Saul, vv. 12-15.
Saul's victory so impressed tho peoplo
that they demanded to know of Sam-
Jol who it was that had refused him
b king, desiring to put them to death.
Saul showed his wisdom by not per
mitting such n courso of action. Many
todny refuse God's divinely uppolnted
king who will yet bo glad to acknowl
edge him (Luko 19:27; Phil. 2:10).
In tho next placo Saul did not claim
credit for tho victory for, said ho,
"Tho Lord hath wrought deliverance
In Israel" (v. 13 R. V.). Ail real vic
tories como from God (Pb. 44:4-8; I
Cor. 15:10). This wus tho true king
ly spirit. Saul reaped tho reward of
his humility, his forbearance, cour
ago and activity in tho loyalty nnd
prldo of tho peoplo. Samuel gladly
shared in tho success of Saul and led
tho people to Gllgal for tho crowning
coremony. This was tho placo whoro
Inrael had first encamped under tho
leadership of Joshua and where tho
twelve stones from tho river had been
set up as a testimony to God's real
pesenco and deliverance.
Saul had natural and physical char
acteristics calculated to mako him a
great and useful king self-restraint,
modesty, mllltnry Invention nnd a ca
pacity for leadership.
Ho was shrewd, patlont and gener
ous. Ho thus stood on tho threshold of
his kingdom with tho possibilities of
untold usefulness nnd blessing.
Wo nro "kings and priests unto
God." Ho has ushered us into his
kingdom. Power, usefulness, influ
ence, helpfulness, victory ovo- sin aro

Wha' importance if any is there
in the Mineral Content of food?
Listen then, to a well-known physician:
"Unfortunately for the well-being and health of the
individual and the human race, the manufacture of foods
has been tending more and more to isolation of chemical
entities; and our modern methods of 'refining', 'purify
ing' and .'improving' the foods which Nature so abund
antly furnishes, deprive the natural, wholesome food
products of most of their mineral constituents and there
by reduce their real food values to a minimum. ,
"The human organism receives but a small fraction
of the nutritive minerals which Nature evidently intend
ed it to have, and the inevitable result is Minernl Starva
tion and its dire consequences in the shape of Malnutri
tion, General Debility, Anemia, Indigestion.Tuberculosis,
Rachitis, Gout, Carcinoma, Diabetes, Nephritis, Decayed
Teeth, and other modern diseases."
The recognition of these facts led, about twenty years ago, to the
perfecting of a food extraordinarily rich in those "mineral constituents"
mentioned above, and which are so necessary for proper growth and
maintenance of body, nerves and brain.
That food is
a food containing all the nutriment of wheat and barley, including the pricelesr
phosphorus, iron, lime, sulphur, etc., of these grains.
Easy of digestion, nourishing, economical, delicious this food, as a part of the
daily ration, has proved its wnrth to thousands.
