CLfMfiING TREE MADE EASY
Excellent Method for Boye to Know Who Are Going Into Country Where There Is Least Danger.
Sometimes a boy Is caught In a predicament where climbing a tree will help him out of his diflBculty. But few boys—those who live in city and town—know how to climb a tree. The Drdlnary method of climbing a tree-1 Is by grasping hold of the lower Drenches with firm hands, placing the

towel or knotted-together kerchiefs round the tree and put your feet’ into the loops. The towels or rag used should be long enough to go half found the body of the tree, and must not be baggy or too long.
Now, having the towel round the tree and your feet In the loops, you embrace the trunk with your arms, raise your legs, and. pressing the towel against the trunk with your feet, stand in the loops as though they were stirrups. Then raise the body and seize the trunk higher up with the hands. Then, holding fast with the hands, you raise your legs again,-drawing the foot-loops ujiwards. repeating the process over and over till you have gone as far up the tree a« you desire.
If the boys are going into the woods where there is danger of wild animals, or even domestic ones with horns, it Is well to practice this method of climbing before venturing to danger’s line. And It will be well to carry along either a good strong towel, or an old

The Old Testament closes with a prophecy; the Nev^ Testament opens with the announcement of the fulfillment of that prophecy. Thus both Testaments are characterized in this lesson: The Testament, prophecy;
the New Testament, fulflllmenL It Is clear from our Lord’s own words that John the Baptist fulfilled this Old Testament prediction, CMaL 17: -10-13). It may be that a more literal fulfillment isc still future, preceeding Christ’s second inning.
Our attention is first drawn to the persons through whom ,Gk>d fulfills hia promise. Zacharias and Elizabeth were both righteous. By that is not! meant that they were either -sinless or perfect—no human being is that —but that they were parents whose whole heart, mind, and strength were dedicated to the will and service of God. Zacharias’ unbelief shows that he was not sii^ess.
This is the kind of people through whom God is willing, and ready even today to fulfill his promise and bleaa the world—not through perfect people, but through those who are constantly striving after perfection. There is no limit to the blessings God will confer upon the world through lus if only we will not touch the glory.

Ing his duty. And so it is always. While shepherds watch their fiocks the an^el comes. We must not forget that Elizabeth also in her modest, humble seclusion was used to bless the world just as much as Zacharias who was exercising a priestly function so high that the opportunity came to a priest but once in a lifetime. God chooses the weak things as well as the great things: D. L. Moody, the uneducated shoe clerk, as well as Paul, Ithe scholar. So Isaac was a -quiet man and ^welt in tents.
The next thing to which our attention is the content of the prophecy. First, it concerns a child. Zacharias and Elizabeth were childless., Jt is no sin to be childless' provided tha'MRft law of nature is violated. It is a sad thing to be childless. At least it waS| so considered in Old Testament days. Would that it were considered so today! A revival of the mother Instinct is needed.
This child was to be an extraordinary child—well every mother’s child Is wonderful! This child was to go before the Lord and prepare his way, just as your child may follow after the Lord and walk in his steps—a worthy career for both John and your*child, and every child. Why should we not hold this ideal constantly before childhood?
Upon the promised child was to rest the vow of the^ Nazarlte. That meant two things: Absolute prohibition
from intoxicants, and entire dedication to God. Can you think of any two things more desirable for your child, for every child? These parents had an ideal before them for their child, and that was a tremend-j>u8 help. Have you? Or do you ^ring your child up at random? Start today with an ideal. Let It ho high; let it be the highest, even Christ.
The mission of John, the Baptist, was to be perormed'by the aid of the Holy Spirit. Is there not a subtle contrast here between the prohibition of intoxication and the filling with the spirit? Just as the person under the influence of Intoxicating liquor is governed and controlled by such spir-

I remember putting It there so that it would be out of the way. 1 go to masquerades so seldom that I had forgotten all about my lovely costume. If I hurry I can get the next train to town and get it!”
“But, my dear, the apartment has no doubt been rented by this time— furnished apartments don’t remain empty long.”
“We have only been out of It a week. Anyway—I can only try and it Is too late to make another costume for the dance,” Cynthia was up and flying about the house for hat, coat and mileage before her mother could remonstrate further.
“I will be back as soon as the Long Island trains can take me to town and back!” she cried as she kissed her mother.
Arriving in New York, Cynthia made her way to the apartment that her parents had occupied for the past three months.
The hall boy was nowhere to be seen and Cynthia went up the stairs feeling very much at home. The apartment was the only one on the top floor. Had she thought, before making the ascent, Cynthia would have asked the Janitor if the apartment were rented, but now that she was a| the top she could find out for herself.

Essence of Good Cooking. ”
The essence of good cooking lies in four things—the ability to preserve, develop, improve and vary the flavo/, of foods. The French excel partlcu-i laily In the art of vairihg the flavor. A small piece of meat suffices them to make a whole pot of vegetables redolent of IL Conversely, they use all sorts of vegetables to Impart their unique flavor to meats—In soups, •tews, sauces, and the water in which meat or fish is boiled. The combinations and variations are endleaa.

ceremony carried her up (he hall to the front of the apartment.
He set her down in the middle of the dining table. “Now—my little burglar—what are you going to do?" he asked with polite mockery.
“I’m not a burglar!” stormed Cyt’'-thia, and a furious color flamed lnu> her cheeks.
“Lady -burglars geftrally say that." commented Colbrook.
“I’m not a lady burglar,” Insisted Cynthia, very near to tears.
“I most certainly wouldn’t take you for a man burglar,” said Colbrook.
Cynthia struggled tor calm and a moment later looked defiantly into Jim Colbrook’s eyes. She felt that she was beautiful to the eyes looking back at her and it gave her courage to be herself—fearless and confident.
“I realize fully that I had not the slightest righf in the world to enter this apartment but—” She hesitated and the color again flamed into her face. Colbrook was gazing steadily at her and something in his face told her that he was even then condemning himself.
“I—or rather my family, occupied this apartment—just before you did and in the hurry of moving I left a costume of mine in that wardrobe at the end of the hall.” A smile crept into Cynthia’s eyes when she remembered herself hanging to the door. Colbrook smiled, but very grimly. “It was a masquerade costume and 1 needed It for a dance tonight—there was no one in the apartment and as I have my key—”
“Don’t say any more.” Colbrook had raised a hand. “I already feel that I owe you an apology, but I must ask you to hurry now. This Is ,a bachelor apartment—the rest of the fellows will be home any minute. We are all going out to the country today. If they found you here there would be the deuce—” Colbrpok led the way down the hall. Cynthia had

She still possessed her key to the lock. Was it by any chance in her bag? It was!
For a second, Cynthia hesitated. Tbe little room in which her much coveted costiime was hidden was close to the door. She could step inside and within three minutes she would know whether or not the dress were there. Should she be caught Cynthia felt that she could very easily explain her action. Surely any reasonable family would understand.
She found the key. Inserted it in the lock and stood within the door.
Cynthia left the key on the outside of the door. It would be much quicker. She wenV swiftly to the wardrobe, stood on tip-toe and managed by straining to opeta the high door.
She drew a great breath of delight I Her costume—at leapt the could see a tiny bit of pink—was there.

The cubby in the wardrobe was high and Cynthia was not. She knew that there was a chair step-tadder In the kitchen. She made her way back to tbe small room and hurriedly u»p folded the chair had climbed up.

Jumped hurriedly to her feet.
"I must have my costume!” she cried hurriedly, “but do get me out of here beforer—”
The door slammed in the hall below and a great noise of whistling arose. Colbrook jerked a „ suit case from the wardrobe, jammed the pink costume in and with scant ceremony hurried Cynthia out.
The play was none too quick. Cyn-* thia was scarcely down one flight of stairs when she met another good looking man. His arms were loaded with great bundles and Cynthia squeezed narrowly by him.

“Next time you fellowa^^ant masquerade costumes you can get them yourself!” he sputtered and dropped the costumes Ae had carried. ’’But i say, Jim—I met a peach on the stairs just now.”
