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.

There is °ply one way to cure Catarrhal Deafeess, and that is by a constitutional remedy. HALL'S CATARRH MEDICINE acts through the Blood on the Mucous Surfaces of the System. Catarrhal Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when It is entirely closed. Deafness is the result. Unless the inflammation can be re- duced and this tube restored to its nor- mal condition, hearing may be destroyed forever. Many cases of Deafness are caused by Catarrh, which is an inflamed condition of the Mucous Surfaces.

He is a bright, ambitious boy, and thought that he might as well be helping Uncle Sant and earning a lit- tle money at the same time as \play- ing\ all summer long like the thought- less butterfly you study about In 901001. The way the story comes to me, be had not been on the job long until one day a packet of letters was miss- ing. The letters bad been intended for a filing ease, and now they were gone. A man was working on the flies while the boy happened to be in - the' room. After search had been made for the letters, with no results, the boy was -..-tdied in by the chief and asked if he had seen the letters. He replied that he had not, as he had not. The next day the boy was dismissed. \If you did not take the letters: son -and I know you didn't,\ his father said to him, \why didn't you tell the talef about the man being In the room?\ \Well. It was like this, dad,\ the boy replied. \I only wanted to work for the summer, rind that man has a steady job. It doesn't mean very much for me to lose the job, but I guess it would tnenn a whole lot for him to have lost his. So--\ And the father is proud of his son, and you can't blame hini. although you may think that the boy made a big mistake in so calmly allowing himself to be \fired\ without protest.

No doubt tile &Milne WaS sent In judgment for the sins of the people, but naa for Abram's sake.' Ile needed the graces of his heart developed. He needed to lie taught the weakness of his own heart, and the fnlithfulness of God. The child of God is not prom - hied meniption from Minis, but grace sufficient to endure them. Abram failed, In the' midst of his trials he went off to Egypt without God's direc- tion, where ho got into trouble. To take one's own way always brings Mtn Into trouble. Ills expedient to save his life was unworthy of Abram. He lied, and a lie Is never justifiable. It Is much better to die than to Ile. Abram by -prevarication deceived the king, but as soon as the truth was known he was thrust out. Though Abram had strayed from the path- way of faith, he had the good sense to go \unto the pInce where his tent had .beim in the beginning, where the altar was.\ This shewed that he was willing to confess his misanke, and be- gin life over again. This Egypt expe- rience was a loss spiritually to Abram, though he became rich there. Increase of rielleg is no sign that a man is in fellowship with God. II. Abram and Lot Separate (vv. 5- 11). The goods of both Abram and Let greatly increased. When they attempt- ed to settle down, trouble arose be- - tween their herdsmen. This is the first record of trouble between relatives over financial matters. Riches often interfere with friendship. They kindle Jealousy and strife between men. They engender greed and selfishness in men. Many times members of the same flint- ily are mitt -tinged from each other through strife for wealth, For the chosen of God thug to quarrel is utter folly and criminni, especially when the enemy of the Lord's people leoks on. \The Canaanite and the Pet-Melte dwelt then in the land\ (v. 7). It is bad enough for God's children to quar- rel, but to do so in the presence of the world which delights therein is greatly to sin. Abram's behavior Is a fine ex- ample of the art of living together peaceably. The illsgrneeful situation was relieved by a generous proposition from Abram. Lot Was allowed his choice. Separation Is sometimes nec- essary. Though he owed nil to Abram, his selfish heart caused hlin to grasp for the best. Lot's action Allows that his stay In Egypt Wan 'ruinous to him. Perhaps he chase the plains of the Jordan because of their re4mblanee to Egypt. One cannot go Into Egypt without being affected by it. This Was a fatal choice for Lot. The motive actuating him was worldly advantage. Though he for awhile prospered, it was an expensive undertaking for him. Lot with all his goods was taken away when the confederate kings came against, Sodom. He is an example of one saved so as by fire (I Con 3:11-15). He set his affections upon earthly things, and the time came when he had to separate front them. The world and Its' lusts pass away, but he that doeth the will of God ribideth forever (I John 2:15-17). Lot was not wholly corrupt; he was a num who allowed the world to get the better of him. Once his money, and his frImily were In Sodom he simply endured the wick- edness, longing to escape from it (II Peter ' 2 :6-8). . III. Abram Deliver.
