Children’s Corner. Bev. T. 0. BOYKIN, State 8- S. Evangelist, Ed BIBLE. EXPLORATIONS. 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.” QUESTIONS. 1. Who were the four kings of the Am orites that joined Adoni-zedec? 2.

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 the year. 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 you. 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 you.’ “Now, children, you may tell me the word that is in my mind. What is it, Bertie?” “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 and Guardian. 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. Baby Saved. 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.
