LKSSON TPJCT-I Samuel 17.3-51.
GOI.DUN THXT-H God lc for us, who
1s fiBiilnat us? Horn. 8:31 It. V
For forty duys (v. 1C) Goliath deflei
SihiTb iirmy, encamped near Oetlile
.hem. Three of tho Bona of Jessu woro
in Saul's army and to them David is
sent with food (vv. 13, IS, 111) These
brothers Bcornfully reproached David
when he expressed n willingness to
fight Goliath, accusing him of pride and
reminding him that hesnshutn fihcp
hord (vv. 2G-29). David's words are
carried to Saul and he is Introduced to
tho king.
I. Boastful Pride, vv. 38-44. Fear
and dlBmay wcro nroused at tho very
sight of this proud Philistine (vv. 11,
24, 32), yet such fear waB foreign to
David, for his eyes wcro not upon man
but upon Ood (v. 37). Ho related to
Saul his exploits not as boasting but
ns giving him assuranco that God was
nblo to deliver him out of the hand of
this Philistine. Saul, who had ouco
been n man of like slinplu faith, 1b now
as much in fear aB any of his army.
David was perhaps about twenty years
of age and verse f6 calls him u "strip
ling," henco it was that Saul'B armor
would not fit him (cf. 10:23). Human
ly speaking, it was an impossible thing
David offered to accomplish single
handed. Even Saul (v. 32) sought to
dissuade David, but David was not
trusting In man nor depending upon
tho armor of the king (v. 39; Pa. 27:1
3; Ibb. 12:2; Rom. 8:31). David took
his familiar staff and sling (see 1
Thess. 6:2'.) and sallied forth, "strong
in tho Lord, not in himself; armed not
with steel but with faith." Crossing
"tho valley" (v. 40 marg.) ho prepared
his sling, with which every Israelite
was skilled (see I Sam. 13:10-23). On
camo tho giant, a ninn about nine feet
tall (v. 4), "a stalking mountain, over;
laid with brass and iron," preceded by
his protector (v. 41). Why such a sol
dier after his period of triumph should
desiro this added safety 1b not quite
clear. It suggests, however, tho sin
ner'B timidity which reveals his essen
tial weakness in that be trusts him
self, takes no chances, and is even sus
picious of his own supporters. What
a contrast! This armored giant and
this ruddy-faced, unarmed youth, car
rying only tho staff, wherewith ho was
wont to fight wild beasts, and hi3
sling! When God calls a man he uses
that weapon with which tho man is
most familiar, and when tho church or
tho Christian soldier seeks to fight in
tho nrmor of another, or by using tho
weapons of tho world, it Ib foredoomed
to falluro (Ex. 4:2; JudgeB 3:31).
II. Conquering Humility, vv. 45-51.
David acknowledged Goliath's su
perior nrmament, yet armed -with tho
nnmo of tho God of the army of Israel
which Goliath had Insulted, his conn
denco overtops that of tho Philistine
and ho hurls back his broud boast.
Furthermore, tho victory was to bo an
immodiato one, "this day" (Zech. 4:C;
James 4:7). With calm assurance he
Informs Goliath of tho outcome of
their conllict, but tnkes no credit to
himself. David had naught but naked
faith and tho senso of a just cause to
strengthen his arm. Ho would do to
Goliath and tho Philistines tho things
that Goliath had boasted ho would do
to David (vv. 44 and 46) "that all tho
earth may know that there is a God
In Israel;" sco also v. 47. David's
seemingly insufficient preparation is
now revealed to bo abundant, for ho
had four stones more than he needed
(r. 40). It is thus that God chooses
'ho weak things to confound tho mighty
(I Cor. 1-27).
III. Summary Wo havo before us
thrc-o lessons. First the lesson of Indi
vidual responsibility. A sinful king had
paralyze'd tho effectiveness of tho
ortr.7 of iBrael. David, "a man after
God'B own heart," refused Saul's ar
mor, crying out "I cannot go in these."
Saul, bound by tradition, must use
conventional weapons. Every great
ndvnnco in tho history of tho church
has been led by somo man who struck
out boldly, insensible nllko to tho con
ventionalism of Ida friends nnd tho
gibes of the enemy. God would have
evory man work according to himself,
no, copying, not imitating, but with his
own equipment. Second, all tho glnnts
of sin havo not yet been overthrown.
Wo still havo the giants of Intemper
ance, Unchastlty, Graft, Selfishness,
Ambition and tho Inequalities of our
civic nnd social life. These can only
bo ovcrcomo in tho strength of God.
Iluiiyan mentions three giants,
Pride, Grim and Pagan; to theso wo
may add, Anger, Untruthfulness, Self
ishness and Sullcnncss.
Third, Our Helper. See Golden
Text. Of nil tho graces David pob
Bc&scd, faith was the root of each ono
faith in a living God.
His active faith caused him with
nimble feet to attack this blasphemous
t'tiemy (v. 48).
H!b fnltli In God characterizes his
cntlro life, resounds in his songs and
strengthened his life of service for Jo
hovah. '
It is such faith that strengthens tho
arm of tho true saint of God, that en
ables him to "ovcrcomo" In his own
lllfe, to undertako for God and to go U
Itho ends of tho earth In his name.
J Available for Wear With Various Frocks
A separate coat, which becomes a
suit-coat when worn with Its own par
ticular skirt, but is availablo for
wear with various frocks, will com
mend itself to every woman, espe
cially to hor who contemplates n Jour

designed this season, nnd they have
been enthusiastically welcomed. They
nro shown in tans, grays, black nnd
whlto mixtures, nnd In checks. In
theso neutral colors they go well with
frocks or Hklrts In any color.
Ono of tho newest nnd smartest of
coatB of this kind Is shown In tho
picture. It is cut with almost
straight lines at tho front and back
nnd trimmed in braid nnd buttons
with a crisp military precision. At
each side, a llttlo bolow tho waist
line, there 1b nn Insert of fan plaits,
giving the desired flare, and the
double turnqver collar, set on at the
back, Is another concession to de
mands of the vogue.
Tho skirt to match Is plain, fitted
about tho hips and with a very con
servative Hare from hip line to bot

ankle length, but short enough to be
a correct tailored model.
In nearly all coats of this kind tho
fit is vague, tho waist lino either

nut this is a hint hardly needed for
the buyer of headwear. Women aro
accustomed to placing becomlngness
as tho paramount essential when
choosing any kind of millinery. In
tho cliolco of motor hats there Is so

can afford to be exacting at)d to look

A Western Canada Farmer
Writes as to Conditions.
A. G Hansen is a farmer living near
Clnvet, Sask., nnd as un old resident
of Minnesota, takes strong exception
to some of tho articles appearing in
American papers disparaging the true
conditions In Western Cnuada. The
"Cottonwood Current" of Cottonwood,
Minn., an Important weekly paper in
the southwestern pait of the state, re
cently published a letter from Mr
Hansen, which Is Interesting rending
In his letter Mr. Hansen makes a
splendid enso for Western Canada
ngalnBt those who seek to deter farm
ers in tho StntCB from settling in Can
ada He BayB:
"The district In which we llvo Is a
fair comparison to any other district
in the country, tnndo up mostly of set
tlers from tho Stntcs. Tho majority
hero consists of Americans from Min
nesota, Iowa and tho Dakotas, with a
few Canadians' nnd nn odd English
man. Wo havo been here eleven years,
over slnco this part of the country was
sottlcd, and tho majoilty havo done
well. If they havo not, It Is certainly
not tho fault of tho country.
"There has not been a crop failure
In this district slnco nettled This
year was tho poorest, caused by lack
of rain, although a fnlr estlmnto of
wheat la about twelvo bushels per
acre, average, and oats nbout ten.
Some farmers got ns much as twenty
flvo bushels of wheat per aero, and if
all got good prices.
"Tho laws of Cnnada arc nearly tho
same us thoso of Minnesota, and wo
enjoy tho samo privileges.
"So far as tho European war Ib con
cerned, wo Buffer to a certain extent
as all the world docs. Canada Is giv
ing a helping hand to her Mother
Country, nnd wo American-Cnnndians
firmly believe It Is Canada's duty to
do so. I havo not heard ono American-Canadian
who hns expressed a dif
ferent opinion. Canada is not com
pelled to send hex soldiers. Tho serv
ice rendered Ib all voluntary service
"Tho accusation that old settlers are
considered undeslrablo citizens and
aro forced out of business, evon In
danger of being 'mobbed at thetr own
fireside,' Is all falso, a mcro fabrica
tion In the mind of badly Informed
correspondents. There aro a few who
have been discovered carrying letters,
others papers and plans to provo them
spies, and whose object Ib to conspire
against tho government. TheBO havo
Justly been arrested. Such a class of
people cannot bo considered good citi
zens, whether living in Canada or In
tho United States.
"Some people aro failures wherever
they are, and as an excuse for failure
In their country It may seem easy to
put tho blnmo on the Canadian people
and the Canadian government. Fact
Is, thousands of peoplo from tho United
States aro emigrating to Canada at
tho present tlmo, which shows they
aro not afraid of the Canadian govern
ment. "Tho government is giving away,
free of charge, provision through tho
winter to farmers In certain district's
affected by tho drought, and Is also
sending seed grain to those In need
of help. ThlB Is very different from
driving settlers away from their own
"I have always observed that the
peoplo who love their Mother Country
most are thoBo who mako the best citi
zens of their adopted country. The
glorious 'Stars and Stripes' will al
ways stand for what Is good and noble
to us, though we live in a neighbor
country where we also enjoy 'life, lib
erty and the pursuit of happiness. '
