What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

K IN G IN NAME ONLY T7TN G OBERON is the husband of the Fairy Queen, but though he Is King his power is very limited, for the only time he has any power at all Is between night and day. This o f course makes him very dis­ contented, for while he Is a King there Is not much fun In being one if you cannot rule somebody or something. The fairies were all very respectful and addressed him as “ Your Majesty’’ always, but It was to their Queen they looked for orders and not to King Oberon. The Queen had to be very careful of Iier subjects and of herself as well at the hour between day and night be­ cause her King was always looking for a chance to display hLs power, which was of so short duration. Once he had used this power to send all the fairies flying over a deep, wide river which he knew would frighten them very much because the fairies do not like the water, and he had sent all the Goblins running to­ ward them when they reached the op­ posite bank, hoping to scare them so they would drop thefr wands into the river. King Oberon is a very meek hus­ band when he lias no power, but dur­ ing his hour the Queen has a great deal to contend with, and one day she decided something must be done to make him behave when the hour be­ tween day and night came around. King Oberon had always had a \er.v easy time living in the fairy palace. He was waited upon and never had to do any work at all. But one day the Queen ordered him to scrub the palace Inside and out. Of course he made a great fuss and said he was a King and it was de­ grading for him to work, but the Queen only answered that he must work or she would use her power .go make him something else than a Fairy King. This so scared Oberon that he took off his crown and kingly robes and called for a pail and brush and went to work. All day he 'scrubbed and into the night, for the Queen would not let him rest. “You will have time to rest,\ she told him, “ when your hour comes to rule.\ At last his hour arrived, but he was so tired he could only drop his scrub­ bing brush and fall .asleep upon the ground, for he was still scrubbing the outside of the palace when his power began. King Oberon slept all through the hour he might rule, and the minute It ended the Queen awoke him and set him to work again. He was only allowed to stop for his cup of dewdrop tea and lunch which the fairies brought to him, and then the Queen ordered him to work again. All day, day In and out, lie worked, sleeping only when his hour to reign came around. At last lie. begged the Queen to^he merciful and let him go back to his old way of living. “I will see how you behave,\ said the Queen. “ I f once you dure to use your power to bother my fairies or to bother me, back to your scrubbing you go.” Meekly King Oberon put on his robes and placed liis crown on his head and mounted his throne and there he sits day by day— a King In name only. And when the hour be­ tween day and night arrives King Oberon is in bed sound asleep, for he knows that once he displeases his Queen again he will work for the rest of Ills days. And what is the use of being a King, be thinks, if you can’t sit on a throne? Even if he has no power it Is better than scrubbing. (© by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.)

I i A s t i h - '.d ' i 1 bj lir~ ---* NewrMpe- Srobl-.-f.» i A X OLD-TIME superstition which is still occasionally met with In the rural districts is that a funeral pro­ cession should not return from the cemetery to the house by the same route which it traversed »before. In Virginia there is a prevalent su­ perstition among the colored popula­ tion that after a funeral from the ; house the position of the door-knobs should be changed. The Virginia ne­ gro frankly says that this change is made so that “the ghost cannot find ; his way in.” The first superstition | mentioned is of a kindred nature and had originally a like purpose. It was to throw the ghost of the departed off the trail so that he could not find hLs way back to the house. Along the Carolina coast a stake is sometimes driven through a grave as soon as a body Ls buried to keep the ghost of the deceased from “ha'nting.” Among the peasants ali over Europe there are similar superstitions to these and among nil, s a 'a g e tribes kindred precautions are taken to keep away the spirits of the departed. The cus­ toms under consideration are not re­ lated to the superstitious—which are many — concerning the protection against ghosts by means of “charms” but have to do with primitive man's conception of the spirits of the dead as entires which could be “physically” eonuoiied by sympathetic magic and easily deceived by the more vigo-ous spiri's eu.bod.ed in the Jiving.

INTERM EDIATE AND SENIOR TOP­ IC— Israel Saved at the Red Sea. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOP­ IC— God’s Guidance From Egypt to Sinai. The tenth stroke from the strong hand of the Almighty, the tenth turn of the screw of Omnipotence, brought Pharaoh to time and made him willing to let Israel go. The Israelites went out on their way to the promised lund. with a high hand. Through the land of the Philistines the Journey would have been comparatively short, but God commanded them to turn from that way, lest, going through the land of the Philistines, they would be dis­ couraged at the sight of war and de­ sire to turn back to Egypt. The way of the wilderness was a long route, but it hud many valuable lessons for them. By this they escaped the experi­ ence of war, but learned the crooked­ ness and perverseness of their own hearts (Deut. 8:2). The Lord went before them in a pil­ lar of cloud bv day and a pillar of fire by night. He not only thus Indicated unto them the right path, but walked with them In it. At the Lord’s direc­ tion they turned from their first course and were made to face something dif­ ficult. The Red sea was before them and mountains on either side. The stricken Egyptians had recovered from their sorrow and now saw the Israel­ ites in a situation from which they could not extricate themselves. They Interpreted this to mean that Moses was unable to lead them out of their difficulty. Therefore, they went in pur­ suit, hoping yet to prevent them from going out of the country. I. The Miraculous Escape of the Is­ raelites (Exod. 14:21, 22). They were In a straitened condi­ tion, but had no reason to fear, for the Lord had led them there. There seems to have been a twofold object in lead­ ing them into this particular place: to strengthen the faith of the people and to lay a snare for the overthrow of the Egyptians. The people, as usual, dis­ played their unbelief, even censuring Moses for leading them out of Egypt Moses replied to their munnurlngs by saying: “ Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.\ Stand­ ing still in such a trial ls faith taking hold on God’s promises. God said to Moses: “ Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the cliil 'ren of Israel, that they go forward.” Having had His definite promise, to have prayed longer would have been unbelief. The lifting up of the rod simply served as something tangible upon which their faith could eet. They were to go for­ ward a step at a time, without raising any question as to the outcome, for from the same source from which came tbe command came the power to obey. Tbe presence of the Lord was adapted to their needs as they went forward. The form of the Divine presence and help is determined by Kls people’s ne'-ds. The cloud then passed to tbe rear and held tbe enemy at bay. The presence of God bad a double effect: darkness and confusion to tbe enemy and light and guidance to His people. As they went forward the very thing which seemed their destruction became a wall of protection on either side. II. The Overthrow of the Egyptians (Exod. 14:23-31). Having seen the Israelites go across dryshod. Pharaoh and his people mad­ ly pursued them. They insanely thought that they. In their unbelief, could follow in tbe wake of God’s children. Tbe Lord looked forth from tbe cloud and wrought confusion among tbe Egyptians. He not only looked upon them, but too}- off their chariot wheels, causlDg them to realize that God was fighting against them. He then directed Moses to stretch forth his rod and bring destruction upon the Egyptians. III. The Song of Triumph. (Exod. 15:1-21). ‘ Standing on the other shore of the Red sea, they could fittingly sing the oong of triumph oecaese of the mi­ raculous deliverance and overwhelming defeat. They attributed all to God. All self was left out. In a glad coming day a tdtniiBr but larger congregation will sing tbe same song with an addi­ tion, namely, of the Lamb (Iier. 15:3).

Miss Mary Katherine Campbell, twice proclaimed “Miss America,” has taken TA N L A C and endorses it in a statement recently given to the women of America. In this state­ ment, Miss America declares that Good Health is the basis of all Beau­ ty, and advises women who would be beautiful to “first find good health.” Her complete statement as given is as follows: “I consider it a.great privilege to be able to tell the thou­ sands of women everywhere what a great tonic TANLAC is. Health is the basis of all beauty. Without good health, one is apt to be run­ down, nervous, underweight, high- strung, anemic. Indigestion drives the roses from a woman's cheeks and robs her of that radiant quality of womanhood that is real beauty. “I have taken TANLAC ànd I do not hesitate to say that it is a won­ derful health-giving tonic. It has brought relief and good health to many women, and with good health one may have a measure of beauty that will overcome shortcomings in face and figure. “Rosy cheeks, sparkling eyes, a well-rounded figure, a lovable dis­ position, go hand in hand with good health. To those searching for beau­ ty, I would say— Tirst of all, Find Good Health.’ The TANLAC treat­ ment has proven itself a boon ta womankind, and I recommend it.” Miss Campbell has written a book­ let on Health and Beauty which may be secured by filling out the coupon below.

Headaches, biliousness, sleepless nights, heaviness, are nature's warning that intestinal poisons are flooding y o u r system. If allow e d to con­ tinue, you may becom e a victim of serious organic disease. In constipation, say intestinal specialists, lies the primary cause of more than three-quarters o f a ll ill­ ness including the gravest diseases of life. Laxatives Aggravate Constipation Laxatives and cathartics do not overcome constipa­ tion, says a noted authority, but by their continued use tend only to aggravate the condition and often lead to permanent injury. Why Physicians Favor Lubrication M e d ical science, through knowledge of the intestinal tract gained by X -ray observation, has found at last in lubrication a means o f overcoming constipation. T h e gentle lubricant, Nujol, penetrates and softens the hard food waste and thus hastens its passage out o f the body. Thus Nujol brings internal cleanliness. Nujol is wood in leading hospitals and is pi*-icribed b y physicians throughout the world. Nujol is not » medicine o r la katHe and c&anot gnpe. Like pure -water it is harmless. Get rid of constipation tsed ovoid disease by adopting the habit of internal cleanliness. Take Nujol as regularly os you brush your teeth or wash your face. For sale by ali druggists. **• SiXC. US.
