Bev. T. 0. BOYKIN, State 8- S. Evangelist, Ed
When Adoni-Zedec, king of Jerusalem '
heard how Joshua had taken Jericho and
Ai, and also how he had made peace .
• with the Gibionites, he called together
four other kings, and said to them:
“Come up unto me, and help me, that
we may smite Gibeon; for it hath made
peace with Joshua and with the chil
dren of Israel.” So these five kings, call
ed the kings of the Amorites, united all
their armies and made war against Gib
eon. When the Gibeonites saw these
kings with their armies coming to their 1
city, they sent messengers to Joshua, at
Gilgal, where he was encamped, begging
him to come and save them from the
armies of the Amorites.
Joshua at once gathered all the people
of war and all the mighty men of valor
and started to Gibeon. The Lord told 1
Joshua not be afraid, that he would de
liver the armies of the five kings into
his hands and that not one oi them
should stand against him. So Joshua
slew them with a great slaughter, and as
S. they fled from him the Lord sent down
upom them great hail-stones from heav
en. And more were killed by the hail
stones than by the swoids of the Israel
ii ites. Here a mast wonderful thing hap
pened—such as had never happened be
fore and never has since. When Joshua
was following after his enemies, he com
manded the sun and moon to standstill,
so that he might see how to destroy the
fleeing Amorites. And the sun did
stand still tn the midst of heaven about
a whole day. But the five kings man
aged to hide themselves in a cave. When
Joshua heard of it, be commanded some
men-to toll great stones upon the mouth
of the cave and to watch it so as to keep
them from escaping. After the pursuit
and killing of the Amorites, the people
- returned to the camp of Joshua. Then
Joshua told them to open the mouth of
the cave and take out the five kings. He
commanded the captains of the men of
war to put their feet upon the necks of
the kings. They were then slain and
hung upon five trees until evening, when
they were taken down and put in the
cave where they had hid, and the stones
were placed back at the mouth of the
cave. After this Joshua captured many
other cities, with their kings, and killed
all the people tjiiiom he fought against.
He smote albtfie country “from Kadish
barnea even unto Garaand all the coun
try of Goshen, even unto Gibeon,” and
then returned to his camp at Gilgal.
When Jabin, king of Hazor heard of
Joshua’s victories, he did like Adonize
dijcs, called together a number of other
kings, and they united their hosts to
fight against Joshua and Isarel. They
met together with vast armies, in num
ber as the sands upon the sea shore, at
the waters of Merom. But the Lord
again told Joshua not to be afraid, for he
would also deliver them into his hands
and they would be slain. So when
Joshua and his men of war went out
against them, he put them to flight and
slew them all. And the Lord continued
to be with Joshua and the people of Is
rael pntil all the inhabitants of Canaan
were .beaten and driven out befo'-e them.
\The land was then divided among the
’ tribes by lot, that is among all except the
two and a half tribes who chose to have
their inheritance on the east side of Jor
dan. But to Caleb was given Hebron as
a special favor “because he had wholly
followed the Lord God of Israel.”

All the letters received during the last
week or more have been answered pri
vately, but we have failed to get in one
that came to hand some time ago, and
that made us 5-el “good.” Here it is:
Dear Brother: Enclosed find a small
contribution for your work, a part of
which came to hand in rather a remark
able way, the benefit of which you will
please give to the readers of the Chil
dren’s Corner of The Index. Little Mol
lie Gladin, a Sunday-school scholar of
six or seven summers, filled with the
spirit of missions, inquiredof her mother
if it was too late to pay something to the
pastor of the church, as she had failed to
have her name enrolled upon
the subscription list at the beginning of
Being informed that the opportunity
had not closed, she seemed much grati
fied that she was permitted to give her
mite to the Masters cause, and said,
“well, father owes me 50 cts., and I want
him to give it to him for me.” And we
made her a faithful promise that we
would substitute the eagle on that half
for a dove to send the olive branch to
more than one family circle.
As we promised you at the Ebenezer
Association that we wouldmake arrange
ments for you to visit our Sunday school,
we herein renew the same and*add that
we expect to have readv, by that time a
larger contribution. You shall hear
from us again.
Yours in Christ, J. H. Hall.
We acknowledged the receipt of the
$2 50 privately to brother H. and again
thank him and the school, and especially
do we rejoice at the sweet spirit of little
Mollie. If all of us had her spirit, how
easy it would be to support pastors and
missionaries! If ever we inculcate the
spirit of missions, it must be done in
youth. Do the pastors and superinten
dents bring the matter before the chil
dren often? They will not disappoint
OUR CHRISTMAS OFFERINGS.
We feel very grateful to our friends
who have sent us tokens of kind remem
brance. They, as all others have been,
will be cherished with grateful apprecia
tion. We hope to enter upon the new
year’s work with more energy than ev
er, and propose to make some improve
ments on former plans.
We wish brethren and friends did
know how much we do appreciate their
sympathy and their help, especially the
voluntary contributious sent. We ten
der our most sincere thanks for the many
loving letters of condolence since the
death of our precious son. God abund
antly bless you all.
AN IMPORTANT WORD.
“I shall not tell you what the word is,”
said the minister to the Sunday-school
children, “but I will give you a clue to
it, and then I shall ask you to tell me of
what I am thinking.
“There was once a great English naval
officer who had fought well his country’s
battles, and at last lost his life just as he
had gained a decisive victory. As one
of his fellow officers knelt by his
side, the dying man said, ‘Thank God I
have done my 1’ ”
A lad among the Sunday scholars rais
ed his hand to know if he might speak
the word which he had already guessed.
“Not yet, Bertie;” said the minister,
“I have another story to tell you first.
“There was a pious monk who used to
pray every day a great deal, and who
lived very near his heavenly Father.
One day when he had been very earnest
in his prayers, he thought he saw a vis
ion of our Lord Jesus in his cell. It was
very beautiful; it seemed really as if the
blessed Saviour were present, as if he
could see him with his natural eyes. He
could not bear to leave the place, and
wanted to linger right there and enjoy
and worship; but the vision said to him,
‘Go,- feed mv hungry, and take care of
my sick and poor,’ and he obeyed the
voice and went, and attended faithfully
to whatever came in his way to do, and
when he returned to his cell the vision
was still there in all its radiance, await
ing him. It said:
“ ‘lf you had not heeded my command
I should have left you; but now that you
have done your I remain to bless
“Now, children, you may tell me the
word that is in my mind. What is it,
“Duty,” cried ever so many voices. .
“Yes,” said the minister, “our duty is
that which it is right for us to do. It is
something that we must do whether we
will or not. It is happier for us to keep
to the laws of God and of man. Let us
make it a delight to do the will of our
heavenly Father which is our bounden
service and duty.— L. M., in Advocate
The Fortune Teller.—A band of
gypsies was strolling through a part of
the Country. A woman belonging to
this band attended a revival meeting.
There she heard, for the first time in
her life, what the Bible teaches about
the resurrection. God blessed what she
heard to the good of her soul. She wa/
led to repent of her sins, and became a
humble believer in Jesus.
Not long after this, several wild young
men, who wanted to have some-sport,
visited the gypsies’ encampment; They
happened to come to this woman who
had become a Christian, and asked her
if she could tell them their fortunes. She
said she could, and invited them into her
tent; “for,” said she, “I have the best
fortune-telling book in the world.”
Then opening her basket in which she
had formerly kept the charms and the
book that pretended to tell tho meanings
of dreams and such things, she took out
a New Testament. Opening this book
she turned to the last verse in the third
chapter of St. John’s Gospel, and read
these words: “He that believeth on the
Son hath everlasting life; and he that
believeth not the Son, shall not see life;
but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
“There, my friends,” she added, "that
is was God says about your fortunes;
and you may be sure that every word of
it is true.”— Labor of Love.
Trifles'—Straws show which way the
wind blows, and trifles indicate the bent
of character. I saw Hettie reading the
other day in a borrowed book, and when
her mother called her, she laid it care
lessly open, face downward, on a chair.
It happened tliat Hettie did not return
immediately, and before she had done
so, the baby had pulled the book by one
‘corner to the floor, and Hettie, running
hastily in, had trampled upon it. Its
condition would certainly be unpresent
able when it should be sent back to its
owner. My own impression of Hettie,
who had seemed to be a very amiable
young lady, was that she was unfaithful
in small things. Had she closed her book
and placed it on the table before leaving
the room, it would not have been In
jured. When I see a young girl with
a torn dress, slippers down at heel, and
a general lack of neatness in her home
toilet, I am doubtful of her genuine love
and respect for dear home friends. When
I know that Lucia is always late at
church, I begin to wonder if she is not
tardy everywhere else. When I hear
Sara scolding Mattie for some small fault,
I consider her on the road to becoming a
termagant. Don’t neglect the trifles,
girls.— Christian at Work.
We are so thankful to say that our baby
was permanently cured of a dangerous and
protracted irregularity of the bowels by the
use of Hop Bitters by its mother, which at
the same time restored her to perfect health
and strength.—The parents, Koch ster, New
York. See another column. —Buffalo Ex
