Origin of "Gob."
A sldc-llght was thrown upon the
word "gob" by the Scotsman of Aug
ust 4, 1880, which said that when u
meeting of the coastguard takes place
the men Indulge In protracted yarns,
n draw of the pipe, and . friendly
chew. Such n ..Mission Is invariably
productive of a considerable amount
of good-natured banter, ns well as free
expectoration nil uround, where
from our friends came to he known as
"gobbles" (from "gob," tho mouth).
In the process of time gob nnd gobble
came to be applied to the ships
manned by the gobs.

Eleven commandments In "rovers
English" have been found useful by
William Q. Sctlirfe, stale adjutant ot
tho American Legion In Illinois, In
building up the Legion's program for
thnt state. They are ns follows:
1. Don't attend meetings If It ruins.
You might get your feet wet, and you
are not In the physical condition you
were nt the cantonments, or at llrest.
2. Don't think of going If It Is n
warm, moonlight night. There me lots
of other things you could do thnt sort
of n night. F'r Instance Oh, roll
our own Idea.
;i. If you should nttend n meeting,
find fault with overj thing that's go
ing on. If your olllcers arc showing
pep, demand to know In open meeting
what political otllces they Intend run
4. Never nccept an olllce In the post.
Most office have duties connected
with them, and It Is much easier to
criticize the way the other fellow Is
Irving to handle the Job.
5. Get sore nt the organization If you
arc not appointed on n committee.
0. If you are appointed, don't both

Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never
Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggists
who sre constantly in direct touch with
the public, there is one preparation that
hns been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healipg
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is
soon realized. It stands the highest for
its reninrk.tble record of success.
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies, in
an interview on the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that one reason why
so many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, and the
Urge majority of those whoso applica
tions are declined do not even suspect
that they have the disease. It is on sale
at all drug stores in bottles of two sizes,
medium nnd large.
However, if jou wish first to test this
great preparation send ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer & Co., Hinghamton, N. Y., for a
sample btttle. When writing be sure and

This parable, like that of the ten
virgins. Is associated with the Second
Coming of Christ. In both Instances
he unpropuredneHs for His coming on
the part of the people Is exhibited. In
that of the ten virgins their unreadi
ness consisted In their failure of In
ward llfe-ubi.cncc of the Holy Ghost.
In this of the talents It consisted in
their failure to properly Uhe the gifts
which had been Intrusted to them. The
first wns failure to watch; the second,
failure lo work.
I. The Distribution of the Talents
(vv. 14, 15).
1. It wus n sovereign act. He called
His own servants and distributed to
them bis own money. The Ixrd did
not consult us as to our gifts.
2. It wns nn Intelligent net. "Accord,
lug to his several ability." The Uod
who made us knows our ability to uso
gifts, therefore has made the distribu
tion upon that basis. The reason some
hove greater gifts than others is due to
the fact thnt they possess the ability
to use them.
3. It was a purposeful act. The tal
ents were given to be traded with.
They were not given to be used for
one's own guln and profit, but as stock
In trade for the enrichment and glory
of the Master.
II. The Employment of the Talents
1. All the servants recognized that
the talents were not their own thnt
they were responsible to the Lord for
the use made of them. We are not re
sponsible for the creation of gifts, but
for the employment of such gifts as
hnve been given to us.
2. Two servants used their talents.
The live talented man put his to use
and gained five more. The two tal
ented ftnan put bis to use nnd gained
two more. This shows that God's gifts
can be Increased. The exercise of any
gift Increases It. The faithful use of
what we have In the place we ore will
prepare us for greater usefulness nnd
3. The one hid his talent. Tho fact
that one possesses but one talent
should not dlscouruge htm, but should
mnke him strive hnrder. God sees not
reward according to what we possess,
but according to our faithfulness. The
crime of the one talented man was not
that he had but one talent, but thnt
be hid the talent which the Lord guvo
III. The Accounting for the Talents
1. Its certainty. There Is a day
coming when ull must give an ac
count of our stewardship.
2. The time. This will be at the
coming of the Lord. If we hnve done
well we shall, then hnve prulse. If we
huve been unfaithful we sllnll then be
cast out from the presence of the
Lord. Watchfulness Is not Idleness.
3. The Judgments announced. (1) He
ward of the faithful, (n) Prnlse
"Well done." We all like to be praised.
How blessed will It be to bear from
Hie very lips of the Lord the word
"well done!" (b) Promotion "Be
thou ruler over many things." Promo
tion Is desirable to nil. Much of that
to .which we look forwurd In life Is
the passing from lower to higher privi
leges and positions. (c) ICn trance
upon the Joy of the Lord. The five
talented man and the two-talented man
received the same prnlse nnd sume
promotion. (2) Punishment ot tho
faithless. The one-talented man lied
when brought to account. The talent
when dug up was not the sume us when
It wus burled It wuj. not of the snme
weight. Gifts unused are lost. The
natural oyes lose their power If we
live continually In darkness. This Is
true spiritually. The one who ceuses
to grow in knowledge and grace loses
the capacity to grow, (a) Ilepronch
he was called slothful and wicked. To
be called Inzy Is a reproach which
even the lazy man dislikes. (b)
Stripped. The talent which was given
to him was tuken from lilii). (c) Cast
out. He wus condemned on his own
ground. The very fact that he know
the character of the Lord should have
been un Incentive for him to have ex
erted himself. Ills condition was bin
own fault. In the day of accounts'
there will be no excuse to be made.
