Continued from Page one those who fail to catch the supreme meaning of the gospel. It is further More noted that the gospels refer frequently to the jewish Sabbath after the resurrection of Jesus. The acts of the apostles Speaks of the first Day As the Day of Public Wor the epistles mention the jew ish Sabbath chiefly to furnish an argument for its abolition. In the prophetic Book of the new testament the lord s Day alone is mentioned. The magic which makes Christmas a pleasure and Christ y 5mas giving a Joy is the honest Heartfelt love of Christmas and ?5 friends and the wish to bring happiness of the one into the s jj5 hearts of the others. Only so shall your Christmas be a Happy w six x55 ill watch our windows thursday & Friday i no specific command is Given forthe change of Days yet the fact of the disciples meeting on the first Dav of the week and Jesus dedicating that Day is More important than a verbal command.

The dead sea and ke3ee3&ebeesbesb2seseesssebee2sbs8s&e&ebebbebsbssa housewife May make Heli work More Atti Active. How to make household work More attractive is so serious a problem that it. Is delightful to hear that the operation of Wash ing clothes is a kind of greek so at least a lady who is used to greek danc ing declares. 1 he same authority says that she engages in rhythmic move meats for every household duty and finds her la Bors surprisingly lightened. Thus ent re y can to e conserved in the lifting of a Kettle if one Stor with on s whole body Stead of simply leaning Forward a Little. The the or is plausible pm Norli to deserve a careful woe kin ? out. It is one of the principles of modern education that Tuduy must be Matt play for the child. How much More should work become one Sweet song for the housewife Many might find the combination of washboard and greek dance perplexing. Probably the Ordi nary worker might resent the inner Ference with Eer ways no matk r How much help she might Durive from it. But we have one resource unknown to the ancient in canned music put in the record and turn the Crank and the rhythmic move ment is easy. In this untrodden Field of Domestic Art or shall we say science the first adventurers will have to walk warily. Only Long and careful Experiment can determine the exact kind of music for each particular task. It would not do to employ jazz if slow Waltz time were required. If a bed were made up to jazz the sheets would probably not be tucked in properly at the Bottom. A Little comic opera music might suit a Hasty luncheon whereas for a deliberate and formal Din Ner an adagio from a symphony might blend More harmoniously with the occasion. Since the Domestic problem is one of the gravest the Modem woman has to face it is obviously of the highest importance that the connection Between the family Wash and the greek dance be carefully investigated and fur ther researches undertaken.

He can see Many Hills to the North and the South As Well one Day it was a part of my duty to take an Indian Secretary to a Camp of his countrymen in the Jordan Val Ley. We passed the Northern Shore of the dead sea and while the motor cooled bathed in its Waters. The water is so Salt that it feels oily. Be tween Jerusalem and the Valley is a difference of Elevation of about 8900 feet. The Road leads through Barren country though some of the Hills Are Green in Spring during the Rainy sea son. The water of the dead sea is so heavy that one begins to float whence has waded in a Little More than Waist Dee p. The difficulty is one must be careful that his heels do not go in and his head go Down. Some of the party said that this phenomenon was due to the heaviness of the Gray mat Ter in the upper others repudiated this idea saying something about the thickness of the Ivory in the but of course such peo a re not to be listened to. The Jordan Valley is like a Broad Plain when one is in it. It is walled in on the East and West by Hight Hills. The Valley is probably ten to Twenty Miles wide. The River is a Small nar Row Muddy Stream. There had been no rain in six months yet the water was As Muddy As any Little Brook you Ever saw during a heavy objective bras an outpost near a Bridge. In places the weeds were High enough to conceal a mounted Man. In others there were scattered Tufts of weeds or shrubbery. I have never seen so Many Partridge and Quail in so Small an area As we flushed that Day. We had no real adventures Butone of them one or two problems.

After delivering the goods including the Indian Secretary the three intr run Elf proceeded to Jericho. Bees production of Honey How the transition from nectar to the he Fehly delectable compound is accomplished. When a Bee arrives in the hive with a Load of Honey she searches until she finds a cell to her liking and then enters the cell with feet upward. Her mandibles touch the cell where the Load is to be deposited. Then the Mouth and mandibles open and a drop of nectar appears. With the Mandi Bles constantly in motion while quite Likely some secretion is added to the nectar the head is moved from Side to Side and the nectar spread Over the upper cell Wall. When this Honey is first stored it is quite thin but later the bees evaporate or Ripen it until it contains less than 25 per cent of water. The work is done mostly at night the bees standing on the Combs with head3 upward and then forcing a drop of nectar to the Mouth and mandibles where it gently pulsates for about ten minutes when it is Swal Lowed and another drop appears. This work continues sometimes for nearly half the night anyone entering the Apiary at this time will note the pleas ant odor of the new Honey and will also enjoy the drowsy sound of the millions at work ripening the Honey.

I Smith enlisted As a private but was soon made a Sargeant and on january 21st, 1864, he was commissioned As a second lieutenant of Battery of in the first regiment of artillery 11th, Vermont volunteers. In the latter part of the summer of 1864 he was taken prisoner and spent nine weary months in the prison pens of the South. He was discharged from the service May loth 1865.

The Floral tributes were very Beautiful and spoke of the respect and love Felt ing Palestine much As the in tin Are today. Of course they did not take Fords and Pierce arrows into consideration and if they had i question whether they would Ever have built that Road. Our second problem occurred on a very Steep curve.
