A prominent druggist says, "Take for

almost every case it shows excellent re

to take up tho tusk nt tin opportune
hour. Moves was llrst trained at his
mother's knee, then In I'hnraoh's
court and dually under (Jod's liinnodl
nto hand In tho desert. Tin hitter was
an Imllrmi'tisuhle part of Ills training.
Ills learning In the wisdom of tin
l'.vptlans was helpful, but without
tin Imnicdliite tulorslilp of Clod lit
would havo been a fiillure. All who
arc used of God must .spend some tlini!
In the retlioiuent of his pie.seneo. Two
notnhle examples aro Paul In Arabia
and John on rattans.
I. The Lord Speaks to Moses in the
Burning Bush (vv. 1-0).
It was while keeping the Hock of his
father-in-law in tho desert that tho
Lord appeared to Mos-es. Had he re
mained In Pharaoh's palace lie never
could have had the vision of the burn
ing bush. This bush enveloped In
Humes, yet unconsumed, symbolized
the people of God ensw tithed In the
very flro of God, or God dwelling In
the midst of an elect people. Moses
Eteps aside to behold this straiiKu
Bight, but must be taught tin essential
lesson of the proper approach to God.
We now can approach God with bold
ness through Jesus Christ ( Hebrews
10:10). Our God is a consuming lire.
No evil can be permitted in his pres
ence (Joshua 7; Acts 0). The Lord
did not leave him long In suspense. Ho
told him he was the God of his fa
thers, the covenant God. As soon ns
he knew It wns God who was speaking
to him he hid his face. The sight of
God always causes sinful men to hide
(Isaiah U :.').
II. Moses Commissioned as the De
liverer of His People (3:7-10).
In the preamble of this commission
God said to Moses: "I have seen the
allllctlon of my people." This Is al
ways true (Psalms 2'J:J4; HIM, 0; Isn
lab C.':0). "I have heard their cry."
Not n cry ever goes up from a child of
God unheard by him. "I have como
down to deliver them out of the hand
of the Egyptians." This shows that
God Is actively interested in the cause
of his people. He graciously obligates
himself: (1) To deliver them out of
the hands of the Egyptians. Egypt
may be considered a type of the world ;
tho oppression, a type of win's bond
age; and Pharaoh, a type of the devli.
God delivers his own from the hands
of the devil (Colossluns 1:VA). ('J)
To bring them up out of the land. God
does not deliver nnd leave his own In
the enemy's land, hut brings them out
into n land "flowing with milk and
honey." (3) To bring them Into n
"good land and large." There Is no
loss In obeying God. When he brings
us out of the enemy's laud he brings
us Into a better laud.
III. Moses' Objections Patiently
Heard and Removed C?:ll; 4:10).
1. Personal Unwortlilness (v. 11). He
realized his Insufficiency for this task.
His forty .ears in the school of God
have wrought a great change In him.
His hesitancy is a good sign. Men
who are really qualified to do a great
work are not lorwnrd lo begin It; e. g
Jeremiah, Martin Luther, George
Washington. Moses did not refuse to
go, but pled his dlfilculty before the
Lord. God answeied this dlfilculty by
assuring him that ho would bo with
film. When God Ik with a man the
Impossible becomes the possible.
L'. The Dlllieulty of the People to
Understand Moses' Relationship to
God (Jl:lil, 1-1). Moses knew how un
willing they were lo acknowledge him
ns their deliverer forty years beforo
Since God changes his name as he ns
mimes a now relationship to bis people,
Moses Inquired as to what that new re
lationship would be, and his corre
sponding name. Tho Lord promptly
met this dlfilculty by showing him n
name differing In many respects from
all others previously given. This new
nnmo ts "I Am." This name Is from
tho Hebrew verb "to bo." It Indicates
(1) God's self-existence; (2) his self
sufficiency; (11) his imclinngenbleness.
8. Unbelief on tho Part of tho Peo
ple (4:1). This dlfilculty tho Lord met
by supplying him with credentials
which could not be gainsaid. Ho was
given the power to perform superna
tural wonders (4:2).
4. Lack or Eloquence (4:10). This
dlfilculty the Lord met by providing
on assistant In his brother Aaron.
Wo nsk God to forglvo us for our
evil thoughts and evil temper, but
rarely, If ever, nsk him to forglvo us
for our sadness. Joy Is regarded ns n
hnppy accident of tho Christinn life,
on ornament anil a luxury rather than
a duty. It. W. Dale.
The Human Heart
Tho human heart Is so constituted
that It Is only filled by tho richness
which Hows from It not by tho rich
ness which Hows Into It. Agnes Edwards.
NO DISGRACE TO FEEL FEAR
One Result of War Has Been Saner
Idea of What Constitutes
An English observer calls ntfcntlon
to the fact that our world war has
deployed tin fear of being afraid.
Heretofore, een to most distant an
tiquity, the oik quality Insisted on In
the soldier was that he should bo
fearless and the more callously so tbo
better. Tin faintest tremor of timid
Ity was a black mark against tho mot
respondent knight as well as the low
liest bowman or halbaidter, and tlui
schooling for war was an utter dell
a nee of the personal risk.
This theory hold, as man." will re
member, even tlli the period of tho
Iloer war. when the British suffered
so severely in olileers because it was
held cowardly for a commander to
seek cover. Men, then lis now, felt
fear, for that N one of Mesh's nttrl
butes and, Indeed, Is one of the most
valuable of human possessions, since
fear Is our protection from dangers
and harms Innumerable. We fear wild
beasts to avoid them, snakes and
spldeis to lticreae our attention,
storms and tempests that we may pre
pare means of escape from them.
So It was only In battle that chiv
alry Insisted that man should be with
out fear, or pretend to he.
With the coming of new warfare,
howcer, all lands at once came to a
more sauo understanding and tho old
physical bravery has given place to
moral resolution. The man who now
enters the hell of shell lire, of Inn led
flames and deadly gases, no longer
attempts to fool himself Into the be
lief that he Is not afraid. He knows
full well and only a stupid nature
could avoid the knowledge that the
human Is at the mercy of forces n
million times be.ond his own ability
to counter. The old knight might
renlly believe lie was able to unhorse
nil the enemies that rode against him
nnd therefore might conceivably be
without fear, hut how can a 6oldler
feel that way when facing modern
weapons of destruction?
Therefore. It Is no longer n dis
grace to feel fear or to admit It; the
only disgrace is to nllow fear to pre
vent one doing his duty. How much
finer fiber Is needed for this new tie
fin uce I
Need for More Consuls.
The chairman of the shipping board
hns called the attention of congress
nnd the people to tho need of enlarg
ing our consular service abroad, In
view of the fact that our great mer
chant mnrlno will be released for uso
In foreign trndc.
Mr. Hurley tells us, observes the In
dependent (New York), that the Uni
ted States will have 2r,000,(XK) tons or
merchant shipping by the end of 1020,
nnd that ns fast ns these ships can be
freed from mllltnry work they will en
ter commerce. The present consulates
would be entirely Inadequate to handle
this enlarged business. There are not
enough of them, their stuffs are too
small nnd they are handicapped by In
experience with duties that will be de
manded and by antiquated regulations.
Even now the burden of work, espe
cially In the wny of Inquiries to be an
swered, Is overtaxing the undermanned
nnd underpaid force. Mr. Hurley
therefore plends that Immediate steps
bo taken to remedy the situation.
"We need more consuls and Inrgcr
consular staffs," he tells us. "If we do
not provide them today and prepnro
for the great growth In our merchant
marine and trade afler the war, I fear
that wo shall suffer n serious break
down." You've Heard 'Em.
"Look heie," said the city editor to
the cub reporter, "you should wrlto
everything as briefly as possible. In
stead of saying 'the middle-aged bald

our leading temples of mirth, seized

placed his feverish lips to the mouth

So the reporter merely wrote: "The

Tho war Is over, peace will soon bo
signed, the lighting nations have
fihoathed their swords, and the day of
reconstruction has co'jic.
What of It?
Hundreds of thousands of men,
taken from tho fields of husbandry,
from the ranks of labor, from the four
walls of the counting house, and the
confines of the workshop, taken from
them to do their part, their large part,
In the prevention of tho spoliation of
the world, and In flu meantime re
moved from the gear of common every
tiny life, will be returning, only to find
In many cases old positions llllod, tho
machinery with which they were for
merly attached dislocated.
Aro they to becomo aimless wander
ers, with the ultimate possibility of
augmenting nn nrmy of menacing
loafers? If they do It Is because their
ability to assist In lnylng new founda
tions In building up much-required
structures, Is underestimated. Men
who fought ns they fought, who risked
nnd faced dangers ns they did, nro not
of the caliber likely to flinch when It
comes to tho restoration of what the
enemy partially destroyed, when It
comes to the reconstruction of the
world, the Idenls of which they had In
view when they took pnrt In the great
strugglo whoso dlvlno purposo was to

will stnnd them In good stead now that
tho din of the battlo no longer rings
In their enrs, or tho zero hour signals
them to tho fray, and It will contlnuo
their entire existence.
But If they return to find their old
avocations gone, their places filled,
tho Institutions with which they were
connected no longer existing, new
walks of life and employment must ho
opened to them. It may be that tho
counting house, tho factory, tho

to the farmers of Canada within the

sheep and hogs has been a largo source
of profit. These aro facts that nro

farmers from tho United States who
havo acquired wealth on tho prairies
of Western Canada. Farms of from
