Man's nxtfutility In God's opportu-
nlty. A horde of Israelites were once
fleeing from tlit'lr taskmasters , terror
stricken , stampeding , with men shoutIng -
Ing , women praying , children crying ,
cnttlo lowing , everywhere Indescriba
ble fear mid confusion , before them nn
Impassable Ken , on either Hide Insur
mountable cliffs , to their rear Pha

of ItoofH and the dull thunder of char
iot wheels. Any first year Went Point

W < IH clear Hword , rapine , maBHacred
men. despoiled women , captive chil
dren. At the darkest moment there's
a frantic appeal to MORCS and God.
The answer Is Godlike In Its strength
and assurance , "The Lord shall fight
Tor you , and ye shall hold your peace. "
Rver have your lawyer Hay : "Now ,
Just leave this case with us. It Is
clear as daylight ? " Ever have jour
physician say , "We'll have that child
dancing on the sidewalk and hungry
enough to cat nails In a week ? " Then
you went to your work with light
heart. It wasn't many hours until the
Impossible happened. The sea was
opened , and the Israelites passed over
dry shod , while a cloud of protection
dropped between them and their pur-
Whtn You'v * Don * Your Best.
Say , mother , ever get to the breaking
point , the place where If you could
Just scream It would seem relief ?
Don't do It. The asylum's at the end
of that road. There's something bet
ter , I kuo\.v the pace Is terrlllc , and
yet you don't seem to get anything
done. Washing baby faces , starting
little feet off to school , laundering ,
mending , baking , scrubbing , sweeping
and the thousand other duties that
constitute n woman's day do not seem
to count for much , but I declare unto
you that you are doing more for the
world that now Is and that which Is
to come than many another woman
who fancies she sways the rod of em
pire. Hut when your nerves are Jan
gling , doing duty with n fearfully worn
constitution , whooping cough in the
house for six weeks , no rest , 110 sleep ,
other troubles you don't dare tell any
one , when you cover the cage to keep
the canary from singing , when you
iiiulllc the doorbell , when the wagon
passing seems driving over your fore
head then you are at the Ited sea.
There's one of two ways t ien. either
the madhouse or God. There's noth
ing but the old fashioned religion of
Jesus Christ that will carry a woman
through the trials of home life.
At the End of Your String.
Of course the fellows on the Mcrrl-
mac were heroes ; also the fellows car
rying out the powder sacks among tlie
sparks at Fortress Monroe. Death
snapped right In their faces. But
sometimes the easiest thing to do is to
die. The big trick , then , Is to have
firlt enough to live. Say , father , at
the desk , at the bench , behind the
counter , are you sometimes almost at
the end of your string ? Can't hardly
make both ends meet ? Fighting slan-
der. tlnancial losses , life plans slipping
away , have to let a policy lapse and
put a mortgage on the little homo }
Are then- nights when you've hud to
take the cartridges from your revolv
er ? "My. God. not that ! " your better
self said. Listen ! There's some one
who cares. You are now wedged in
the Ited sea ahead , the mountains on
either side , the ( lends of hull back of
you. There's nothing left but God.
Go right to him. 1 challenge you.
Have you ever honestly tried ? You
see tlio thing Is In his hand. Who
sent.tho rain before Waterloo ? If the
atheist Is right then hunt up your car
tridges again. If Christ Is right then
you have a Father who can somehow
make "all things work together for
good to them that love the Lord. "
Simply Let Gel
Don't pester your lawyer telling him '
of something you've read along the J
line of that case. Don't give your sick
baby quiet doses of "something you've
heard of" to aid your doctor. Ho
knows quite n few things that you do (
not know. Trust him. God Isn't In a t
tight place. You don't have to help (
him. Trust him. lie guides the comets (
In their niultlmllllon mile orbits. Ho i
balanced the leaf that fluttered Just
now. He has handled bigger tasks
than yours. Trust him. Hemenibcr
back home years ago. In the old pond ,
when the fellows were teaching you
to float ? Remember how you floun
dered , and Hung , and grasped , and
clutched , and strangled , with your
mouth and nostrils full of the muddy
pond water , even with the fellows
keeping their hands under your sun
bronzed body ? Then Hill Jones bless
his freckled face , wonder where he Is
now said : "Now , J-lm , don't be so
foolish. Just simply let go ! " And
before long you were floating like a
lazy old porpoise In the sunshine. God
sometimes leads a man Into a wedge
from which there seems no escape.
Then when you are ready not God-
Jo and behold , the way open * up won
derfully. Just seems n miracle hap
pens. You'll never doubt again. Say ,
do you love Hint little curly head that
you kissed good night awhile ago ?
Would you fight pretty hard for every
Imir In her little head ? Well , "tho
Lord shall tight for you. " Your love
for that youngster Is a rope of sand
compared to the love of God for you.

Luke Bates of Valentine Tells of Con
Fremont Tribune : Luke Hates , reg
ister of the Innd olllco at Valentine ,
was In the city this morning on his

Mr. Bates thinks the republican

sion It got Konornlly on Tuesday.
"Next time , " he said , "thoro will be
but ono republican party confronting
the democrats. Then we'll lick 'em. "
Speaking of the re-election of Judge
Klnkald to congress , ho said : "The
people of the Sixth district have set
tled down to a determination to keep
him nt Washington as long as ho lives ,
or IIB long as he wants to stay thoro.
lie wasn't Insurgent enough to vote
against the Paync-Aldrlch bill , but that
didn't nllonnlo any Insurgents. The
judge has been so useful to the people
of his district that there Is no longer
any question about him. Ho greatly
Increased his majority last Tuesday at
a time when ' e.publlcan mumbors of
congress were falling by the wayside. "
TO REDISTRICT STATE.
Lack of Big Majority Will Ensure Fair
Whether the state legislature shows
a slight majority ono way or the other ,
prominent members of the democratic
and republican parties In Norfolk are
rather pleased that the result of elec
tion Is so close In both house and sen
ate. In accordance with the state laws
the duty of re districting the state for
members of congress , state legisla
ture and possibly for district judges ,
will fall to the next legislature , and
the fact that parties are about evenly
represented , they sny , will ensure n
