LESSON FOR NOVEMBER 12
WORLD'S TEMPERANCE SUNDAY.
I.K8SON TUXT-Iloitinnn H 13-10 3.
(lOI.DKK TKXT-H In not good to rut
Jesli, nor to drink wine, nor to ilo nny
thliij: whereby thy brother stumblctli.
The enrly Christian church lintl two
outstanding problems, the question of
the Sabbath days (two of thetn) and
the iiiestlon of eating moat offered to
Idols. This lesson suggests the solu
tion of the latter. Our modern prob
lem of Intoxicating llipiors Ih very
much the biuiiu ns this ancient one of
the early (icntllo Christians.
I. "Let us not therefore judge one
mother" (vv. 13-15). There are cer
tain nets which nro universally conced
ed to be right nnd within the Christian
law of liberty. There are nlso other
nets which are us plainly prohibited.
There tire, a largo number of acts which
lie In the region between these two,
mid men ought to be careful how they
condemn one another for these latter
things. Where good nnd true men illf.
for, their acts, on the matter of tho
Snbbutli (See Col. 11:10), or on temper
mice, must be determined as being
mitotic- Lord, sincerely, conscientious
ly, ft Is not for us to Judge (v. 1H),
literally, to pronounce Judgment. They
have u right to their opinion and to
their liberty of thought and nctlon, but
(vv. 14, 1!1, SI) .s for Paul or the
Christian, he must have a clear con
science, lie must have faith, mid bo
ussured that he Is right; otherwise he
Is condemned by God and by his own
conscience, and Is not a sincere Chris
tian disciple. The word "therefore" In
verse l.'t points back to verse 11!, which
ought to be carefully pondered. As wo
have each to render our accounts to
God, we should stop Judging one an
other. Food Is a very proper thing,
nnd laws are also proper, yet love is
(the ruling principle of the Christian
We ought to have our liberty cur
tailed rather than have our souls lost.
If we magnify our liberty to the sacri
fice of our brother's soul we "walk no
longer In love." The demands of
Christian love are more to the truo
followers of Christ than the permis
sions of Christian liberty. The privi
lege of eating and drinking while It
Injures others, however harmless to
yourself, Is not to be tolerated.
The word "stumbleth" here used
(v. 1!1) Implies a movable trap or snare,
literally any Impediment placed In tho
way so ns to cause another to fall. Wo
must never forget that even a weak
brother is "n brother for whom Christ
II. "Let not your good be evil spoken
of" (vv. 10-1!.'!). The kingdom of God
Is not meat and drink, but it Is a llfo
of righteousness, peace and Joy In tho
Holy Ghost. Our liberty Is to be so
used that It slmll not bo evil spoken
of. The real proof tlmt we are In tho
kingdom of God and that the kingdom
i of God Is In us Is not found in our
scrupulousness or lack of It, In our eat
ing and drinking, but In the manifesta
tions of righteousness In our lives', and
of hnvlng peace in our hearts (l.r:i:t).
This peace must be manifested toward
our fellow men (v. l!)j Ch. 115:18) and
being tilled with "Joy In the Holy
Ghost." The object of our pursuit is
to be the things which make for peace,
the things whereby we may 1111 ono
another up, not the exploitation of
borne pet hobby, for the kingdom of
God does not consist of riding hobbies.
In tills matter of temperance reform
wo all recognize that alcohol has many
uses besides that for drinking pur
poses, and that there are various opln
Tlons about drinking certain forms of
It. and various ways of advancing tho
temperance cause, all of which nro
honestly held by many good men, but
Christian patriotism demands that ev
ery true-hearted man or woman, every
one who is loyal to his country, to liu
inanity and to his God, should tako
rnul's position, (1) That he will not
be a stumbling block In tho way of tho
weak nnd of tho young. (2) That ho
will not do anything to destroy hi?
brother for whom Christ died, (a) That
lie will deny himself anything for their
Bnkc. (4) That his attitude will bo
that of lovo and not of selfishness,
This places tompernnco on n high moral
plane, but tho world Is also beginning
to recognize- that the temperance ques
tion Is also nn economic one.
It is well to huvo faith, but It Is
nlso well to have tho lovo that does
not Injure others by the exercise of
tlint faith. The question Is, "Aro you
perfectly sure this thing Is right?"
When in doubt as to whether any no
tion will please God, doubt your doubts,
nnd nvold that act.
III. "We then that are strong" (15:
1-3). This section Is In reality n con
tinuation of Chapter 11. Paul Is con
tinuing his thought that we nro not
to please ourselves, but rather to llvo
such lives as will edify or build up our
neighbor. Our strcngtli Is not given
to us that wo may glory or lord It
over our weaker brethren, but rather
mni wo may servo them. ,
lo please my neighbor does not mean
"Wliun III JlOIIlO do IIS tho ltnimma

In Woman's Realm
Formal Suit That Has the Merit of Distinction Through Novelty Is
Costume Designed for the Afternoon, in Velvet or
Other Fabrics Da nty Caps for Wear
in the Boudoir.
A formal suit may arne at OHtlur

Usual and original design, or b.v means
of beauty In style and lluMi. Here N
one that lm drawn upon nil tln'se
sources-, and It presents a stunning con
reptlon carefully worked nut. The
formal suit, like the onc-plcco flock
worn with furs, utl'oriN a distinguished
costume for afternoon and for ii no
thing the afternoon niiiv living. It is
worn with a costume blouse and is
equal to all the demands of semi-dress.
Velvet offers advantages for this kind
of suit, and other pile fabrics, In
cluding that shown In the picture,
lire equally rich and more novel.
The suit Is made with a plain skirt
finished with a hem live Inches wide. A
material of this kind does not need
decoration, but since needlework Is
tln order of the day, an embroidered
motif Is allowed in two places at each
side of the skirt at the hem. Very
heavy silk Is used for tills work. The
skirt sets smoothly about the hips mid
falls In folds below.
The coat Is unusual in many ways,
its skirt Is sloped upward across the
front and right side, where It falls with
n slight ripple from the waistline. It
Is much longer and fuller at the hack.
The bod.v Is plain, with easy adjust
ment to the figure. The sleeves me
large and IIiiI-ImmI with di op. expan
sive cull's, anil there Is a collar of most
generous proportions which swathes
the neck In the becoming fashion most
upproveil. Tho front of the coat does
not open Mrnlglit down the center but
the left side Is euiveil to extend across
the llguiv at tin waistline and button
nt the right sjdo. There Is no girdle,
but a rectangular piece of the fahile
takes the place of one at the back. It
Is ornamented with three buttons at
It will he noticed that the skirt ex
tends below the shoetops, but lacks
much of reaching the Instep. This
length Is approved by style makers, but
many women cling to the shorter
skirts, mid, since feet tin so daintily
clad, there Is every reason for allowing
them this privilege.
The ingenuity of those who create
new caps and negligees mid other dain
ty belonging- for womankind has been
put to its annual test. Itefore the
hollda.vs these luxuries that women
lovo blossom out ut their best, and
they must be like and unlike those
that have helped inako other holiday

And even negligee assumes the splen-
dor of gold or silver cloth, veiled with
the sheerest fabrics or laces.
There s nothing prettier for the
short boudoir or breakfast coat than
either plain or printed crepe or soft
silk, with the llmpest of silk lace
draped over It. Tassels or pendant or
naments made of silver or cold cloth,
and ribbon, as always, are found In
compau.v with these materials.
Two pretty caps are shown In the
picture given here. At the right an
open-meshed silk lace with crepe de

The lace is caught back at eaclf side

of silver tissue, and they furnish and

and other regalia of tho kingdom In
The story of tho hiding of tho
crown 1m one of the most pathetic
chapters lit the life of the man who
is generally admitted to have been
Hungary's greatest orator and most
Imoiiuptihlc patriot. The revolution
against Austria (1818-10) having
failed, Kossuth mid bis devoted fol
lowers were seeking safety In tllght,
taking with them the national in
signia. As they ueareil the Turkish
frontier their patriotism would not
pi unit them to bear the emblems of
national existence be.voud the borders
of their country, so, in secret, the re
golia were burled, each participant In
the act vowing not to reveal the bill
ing place i xcept witli the consent of
Some years later, however, after
Kossuth bad gone to Knglaml ami
thence to the fulled States, and the
cause of Hungarian independence
sei ini'd hopelessly lost, the place of
hilling ol the regalia was revealed to
Ktnpcror Kennels Joseph who had the
precious m tides unearthed mid tho
spot consecrated by the chapel, in
which Is u statue of the Virgin and
Child, one of the masterpieces of the
AimiIiiii sculptor Melssner. The
chapel Is approached by u splendid
avenue of tall poplars.
They sa.v the Ameiican states use up
Hiinually an enormous amount of chew

but they form an offset by no means
negligible to the annual product of that
quiet (save when she rejoices over II
new lay) wealth-maker, the barnyard
hen. Gum used to be nearly all spruce
or wax-, remarks a correspondent of
the Host on Herald.
In ISM, In Toronto schools, wo

gealed turpentine, slippery elm, licorice

of wax the boys stole from the altar

ber from car springs, and It was a fear-
, fully laborious two days' Job for tho
Jaws to reduce the pure rubber to u
Joyous, chew able consistency; the piny
spruce pried out from tho Interstices
of cedar ami pine trees. As almost
every schoolboy knows, and honlble
to admit In these germ terrorizing
days, we often swapped gum! And
few succumbed! One cent would buy
u supply of pretty nice tissue-wrapped
wax or sjnuce gum then now noth

Uncle Sam's Chemists.

such government experts as Doctor

Government vessels passing Wash
