Though wo may not he able to kuou-the parti.tdnr location of tho brook, we do know that oh! afforded a hiding place for His servant who so fearlessly declared His message. (1) Prinking of the brook (vv. 4-0). While drinking of the literal waters of tho brook, he was being nourished by the Lhing Waters from the throne of God. From day to day Klijah's faith was tested a he saw the stream run lower and lower as the drouth continued. -) Fed by the ravens (vv. 4-tl). The ravens brought him bread and flesh iu the morning and bread and flesh in the evening. Elijah thus enjoyed two meals each day, with water to drink. Tho same t!od who sustained Elijah, still lives, and we should trust Him for our daily bread. At last the hnnk dried up because there was no rain In the land. The Lord then instructed him to move. 2. At Zarephath (vv. S-16). (1) The place (v. fj). Zarephath wus at the west side of Palestine, near the Mediterranean sea, in t 'entile territory. In order to reach this place Elijah had to cross the country front the Jordan to the sea. Zarephath was only a few miles from the home of Jezebel's father. This, no doubt, was a trial to Elijah. (2) Sustained by a widow (vv. KM2). "I'.ring a little water and a morsel of broad." was the request which ho made of the widow. This, no doubt, was a great trial to Iter, but Clod had touched her heart and stirred up faith in her. Her reply reveals her deep distress. (3) Elijah's reply (v. 13). This made plain to her that It was a case of mutual interest to do as the Prophet said." "The barrel of meal shall not waste: neither shall the cruse of oil fail." (4) The widow's obedience (v. lo). "She did according to the sayings of Elijah, and she and her house did tat many days." (5) tJod keeps His word (v. 30). May we learn from this lesson: 1, The particularity of tiod's providence. Truly a sparrow shall not fall to the ground wlthgut our Father. ly the prearrangements of Chid all our needs are daily met. Then Is no happen so in God's providence. The v woman of Zarephath, going out to gather sticks to prepare the last meal, met Elijah, and Is helped for two years. 2. o matter how small our n-sourees. we can do something for tjod if we will.

House frocks and aprons, outdoor and indoor dresses, and sports togs and garden frocks are all represented this year, and much attention has been given to style in all these garments. The procession Is a bright one. Xo matter how utilitarian the oharacter of the dress or apron, it is designed with an eye to gay color and charming lines.
