This nstounding possibility, arising
out of u story told In the Dnlly Ex

who worked with Professor Carrel be

"Any tissue kept on n microscopic
slide, nt n suitable tempernturo, fed
with tho right matcrlnl, and drained
nt frequent Intcrvnls, will grow and

"If this Is applied not only to one
or two tissues, but to all tho tissues
of n living body, then It follows that

the cost entailed in bringing them

Social Teachings of the Quurter'o Les
The method of review will largely
be determined by the tnste of the
teachers and the gVndc in the school
concerned. To the writer's tnste, two
good methods nre available : the bio
graphical and the summary. In using
the biographical, the lives of four
great prophets, Elijah, Ellsha, Jonah
and Amos mny be considered. These
four men nre connected with nearly
nil the lessons of the qunrter. This
inethot) can be used to good ndvnntnge
in nearly all the grades of the school..
In the summary method the principal
fact of each lesson with its leading
lesson should be set forth. This
method can bo used to good ndvnntnge
In the ndult departments. The follow
ing Is n suggested summary :
Lesson I. Itehoboam refused to
grant the request of tho people for
the lightening of the burdens of taxa
tion, llccnuse of this ten tribes under
the leadership of Jeroboam revolted
and formed another kingdom. The
most effective cure for soclnl nnd
political unrest Is Justice by the rulers
to those ruled.
Lesson II. EUJnh, after announcing
to Almb the withholding of niin for
n term of years, lied und was fed by
the ravens nnd by tho widow at
Zurephath. God adapts himself to the
circumstances of Ills servants, and
sometimes In the most unlikely ways
provides for Ills own.
Lesson III. At the request of Elijah,
Ahub called the people together to wit
ness n supreme challenge of Baal
worship. Faith In God will stand the
most severe test. The fire of God In
the unfailing sign which differentiates
true from false religion.
Lesson IV. Elijah, though brave be
fore the 450 prophets of Baal, fled for
his life from Jezebel. God dealt most
gently with his discouraged servant.
We should lenrn from this hat fre
quently we fall in our strongest point.
Lesson V. Nnboth refused to sell his
vineyard to Ahab, whereupon through
Jezebel's plot he wus murdered, and
Ahub took possession. Nations and
kings should respect, the rights of In
dividuals. Lesson VI. When Elijah's work wns
finished, God took him to heaven by
a whirlwind. Elijah hnd once requested
death, but God had u better way for
him to go to heaven than by way of
Lesson VII. The Shunnmmlto
woman, seeing Ellsha passing by on
errands for God, was moved to pro
vide n comfortable lodging for him,
whereupon Ellsha sought to recom
pense her by promising that God would
give her u child. Not Infrequently has
tho prophet's chamber brought bless
ing to the home.
Lesson VIII. At the command of
Ellsha, Naaman dipped himself seven
times In the Jordan and was healed
of leprosy. In order to be healed of
the leprosy of sin, human pride nnd
vanity must ho put away nnd obedlcnco
rendered to God.
Lesson IX. The king of Assyria sent
a great army to apprehend Ellsha be
cause he had repeatedly Informed the
king of Israel concerning the move
ments of the Assyrian nrmy. When
the Lord opened the eyes of Ellsjja'a
servant, he beheld the mountains filled
with horses and chariots of Ore. "Tho
nngel of the Lord encampeth round
about them thnt fear him, and de
llvereth 4beni." "Lord, open our eyes I"
Lesson X. At tho preaching of
Jonah, the wicked city of Nineveh re
pented nnd God showed mercy. God's
mercy nnd forgiveness should move
us to preach the gospel to the heathen.
Lesson XI. The children of Israel
prided themselves In their security
and gavo themselves to luxury nnd
Bensunl Indulgences. God sent Amos
to warn them of the Judgment which
must follow. The Lord will bring tho
ungodly to Judgment for their ungodly,
Lesson XII. In due time the prophecy
of Amos cnino true. The Assyrinns
