us a very profound message in the

Sometimes come blessings in disguise,!
And, failing such to recognize,
Some impulse strange we oft abey,
And priceless treasures thrust away.
Sometimes ship-wrecked, with rescue
/his we refuse, thru craven fear,
Then, when it is too late to save,
We leap toward the receding wave.
Tis sad that timid creatures, these,
Scruples exacting to appease.
In blindness blessings should refuse,
Which to obtain meant but to choose.
Twere well this lesson then, to learn:
Best to be careful, and discern
What’s good or ill, ere we decide,
Lest blessings true we cast aside.
WHEN A WIFE MAY SHOOT HER
By R. A. Adams
(For The Literary Service Bureau)
Not long ago a woman was struck
a terrible and dangerous blow by her
husband. The probability is that her
skull was fractured, and she may
die. Hurt, dazed, stunned by the
blow and the revelation of brutality!
on the part of her husband, she went
up stairs, secured a revolver, returned
and killed her husband. In other
cases men have been killed while in
the act of beating thir wives. Had
these women the r ght to kill their

WEEKLY SHORT SERMON
By Dr. A. G. Bearer
The Babel Builders
Text: Go to, let us build a city and
a tower whose top shall reach unto. ..
Sad must have been the disappoint
ment of these Babel-builders. They
would build a tower to reach unto
heaven; thgy would climb up and
take the throne of Jehovah by vio
lence. Confusion came. They were
scattered over the face of the earth.
The word “Babel” is commemorative
of their folly in which we find a
lesson for this age.
This too, is an age of Babel-build
qrs. Men erect towers of wealth,
thinnking that money will make
them independent of God. They revel
in their riches and sneer at the idea
of God. Then, like the case of the
magnate Insull, the tower falls—and
crushes its buildar. Like Alexander
the great, Napoleon, and the German
Kaiser, men build towers of fame
and honor. Like the Kaiser they say
“Me und Gott.” Th:y accept the ap
plause of the populace, a thing un
certain and unstable. Then, they are
discredited, dethroned, exiled, ruined.
By means of the tower of morality
men try to climb up to the heavens,
despite the fact that Jesus declared,
“Ye must be born again.”
As in the case of the foolish build
ers, all towers and all efforts will
fail and the rule and the authority,
and the power of Jehovah will stand
And, in all it will be demonstrated
that His power is supreme, and that j
“The judgments of the Lord are true,
and righteous altogether.”
By A. B. Mann
“While the city sleeps,” policemen
make their founds, protecting life
and property. Many of them are
loyal and faithful to their exacting
duties. They are in constant danger
as they patrol the streets. They
deserve great credit, for o them, ev
ery hour is an hour of peril. But
they are no more deserving than
thousands of men who are known
simply as night-watchmen, and who
are as dependable and as loyal and as
necessary as those of the other class.
In large industrial plants, in banks
and in other such places where mil
lions of dollars are stored, in public
buildings where millions of the money
of tax-payers must be protected, these
faithful servants of the people keep
their lonely and dangerous vigil—
“While the city sleeps.” Often they
lose their lives as they seek to pro
tect against burglars and bandits. To
these humble souls comes little praise
they are among the forgotten class;
they are poorly paid and little appre
ciated; they are unsung; but they are
heroes “for a' that; and a’ that.”
Unkindness to Children
By Videtta Ish
(For The Literary Service Bureau)
Children are generous. They are
forgiving. They make up easily, in
their innocence. But they have queer
memories. They remember unkind
ness toward them. Perhaps to never
forget such actions. A woman spoke
harshly to a little child of three re^rs
The child was hurt. After that, wfc n
this woman desired to show kindness
the child rebuffed her. The number
of such cases is legion.
Looking back I remember such
treatment, in a few instances. I have
forgiven. I bear no ill will. I would
do a favor quickly for those people.
But I cannot forget. Mention of their
names will bring memory of the un
kindness shown and of the hurt it
gave me. It might be well for older
people to look back. Perhaps if they
would look back and remember the
hurts they received, under such cir
cumstances, they would be more
cautious in dealing with children who
will be the adults of the next gener
ation—and who may remember, as
we now remember.
