dodis nqt iso weak and lacking in power and .wisdom that
lie has created us and the individualities we see in the world,
and given all .of them something of Hia life, and then neg-
lected to provide and care for them. He is not unmindful of
the tea3t thing that He has made. Having something in it
of, Ilia own life, He is thus only taking care of His own. That
is why "not even a sparrow falleth to the ground without the
, Father's notice," The beasts of the field, the birds of the
; air, even the little insects, as well as man, are provided with
sustenance and all the- things necessary for their develop
ment, comfort and happiness.-: .,, 4 ;F . .
: Yet although, the Father has provided all this abundance
i for us and the rest of creation, He has so made the laws of
. the universe that they cannot be acquired; utilized, or enjoyed
. without effort. As the old proverb has it, "God;gives every
" bird its food, but He does not throw it into the nest." ' The
bird must go out and hunt forjindiind that which is to sus
'tajn 'lts life. It is the same in the life of man.and of other
individualities in His creation; " And He requires thi3 effort
. because- without -it ? there would be "no . development br
,i strength;". This necessity for effort is just as great an evi
dence, rightly understood, of His love and care for His chil
dren as His bountiful "provision of- every '-element and condi
''tiorY for their life, development and happiness. &fiH?
' ; i Not so very long ago when there was -an : epidemic of
disease in a city or neighborhood, nearly everyone . looked
upon it as a visitation ot Providence; because ,ot, the sins of
ihe.city or community, or because God had become incensed
against it for ..some other inscrutable reason. ' Only recently
have men generally, come-to understandTthat. such epidemics
rJate caused by the violations of the simplest laws pf health,
.ahd that' the penalty that comes from their violation' is, not to
satisfy the anger of God,-but to force us to learn what these
laws are and to obey them. : And so with everyisuffering
5for sorrow that comes to Us. It is the result of the'viplation
of some law of our beings or of the universe, or .th?, cpres
Jsidn of some weakness or wrong attitude in us that needs to
; Jbe eliminated or changed. Full knowIedge,strength, develoD-

, -helping us ftv gairf these prizes. . Failure? disappointment,
"sorrow suffering, no leSs than success or pleasure, tinder His
Tovirig and behificent Jaws, are calculated to bring ui knowlr
j;edger strength and lhat; perfection' which alone can produce
iruaihappinesi.and that.Vpeace which jpassetK all unden

'. realms His laws are forcing men to learn wi3dom, to forsake
; their weakness forstrength, and to rise out of the rhud and
n mire of the sinful" physical life and walk the upward-way
,; which alone leads to wisdom and strength Make no-mistake
-i about it; this is the meaning and purpose ot every, trial and
' suffering that, comes to you. If His Jove cannot draw; you
'away from the things that bring misery, if you cannot hear
' im command to forsake evil,, or hearing, you are too weak to
"heed And obey. His pve and laws are forcing you by this mis
f; ery , which the infraction of the moral and spiritual laws
' bring to you to turn from the sinful, carnal life with disgust
and loathing land seek to" learn of God and His truth and
: : Although Ihere hs recently developed more toieration
among men , and a more .liberal and charitable spirit.is
abroad,' there still are those who think that God loves only
them and th03e who walk with them, and that all others are
sinners rejected and hated of Him. This, however, is not
in accordance with the Scriptures or with' reason. - God, hav
ing made all His creatures, loves them all, the sinner as well
as the saint, and He has made no mistake with any of them
and no power outside of Himself has interfered, with -His
plan in the case of any of them. HU loving hand is upon
the sinner no less than the saint, His chastisement through
His laws is extended to the sinner with the same love that
the blessing and benediction are sent to the saint. Both help
on H3s creatures to greater knowledge, strength and per
fection. What man who ha3 reached mature life cannot recall val
uable lessons that he learned through the embarrassments,
failures, sufferings and sorrows that came to him in the
earlier years ? Through them he gained most valuable
knowledge, acquired self-reliance, eliminated weaknsses from
his-character and was moyed to forsake evii Let u be as
sured that every unpleasant experience that comes to ois is
sent or permitted to come for the same beneficent purpose
by the Father who loves us and "doeth all things welt" When
we can fully believe this there wfllHte an end of complaining,
of finding fault with, our lot, of discontent and gloom.1. No
matter what may come to us the knowledge that it is lovingly
sent for our good will take away the sting of defeat; sweeten
every sorrow, give hs strength to bear every pain,, and fin
us with a certainty that when adversity, has borne its sweet
fruits in U3 the day of our life will be fuller andVbrighteraftdk
its pleasures sweeter, greater and nobler. - - ''
Let us strive to know something of this God -of love, to
understand something of the great results His laws, over us
are calculated to work in us, and thus come to trust Him at
all times and under all circum3tances.4jThus wilLlifefor: us
be robbed of its bitterness and every cloud that comes over
our lives will hiv a silver- lining. : ; f : A i , -

was carried along with the show,
but he had no part in it, and this
he felt keenly. He longed to real

in the big tenU , He wanted to be
a rider. --
One afternoon he was standing
in the entrance which led from the
menagerie into the show. His
friend; . Carle, had just, gone in.
