The pkic-e is in the northern kingdom., commonly called Israel. The principal characters are Ahab. the kins; Jezebel, his xvife and Elijah, the prophet.

Ahab was the cleverest among them, he was a. man of brilliant parts. He married a daughter of the king of Zidon and she was one of the »icfcedest woraen in all history; her comlrts to the cap-iial with the younsr prince was the signal for plungins Israel into new depths of idolatry. Ahab built for her convenience, :n the honor of Baal whom sbe worshipped, a splendid teraple and he himself worshipped there. The priests of Jehovah to the number of -550 were put to death by this wicked queen: her intention was to destroy them all bat Obc.diah. who occupied an important position under Ahab. feared and worshipped Jehovah. He- concealed IC'O priests, putting 50 in two caves. These he fed from the table of the king without Jezebel know- in:; it. T «Vorship in the temple of Jehovah had fallen to a very low ebb if indeed there was any such as public worship left. In this sad state of affairs. probably on sonie srreat occasion at the court of Ahab when there was a bri'liant company assembled and merriment and latis:hter filled the palace, there stalked into the very midst of the company ihe strange wild tnan of whom we havi> spoken. Confrontirig' Ahab. he said, *'As Jehovah liveth, be- iore Tvhom I stand, there shall be neither dew nor rain for these years." Consternation was so pronounced that no reply was made and the great prophet rumed on heel and left the palace as sud- <ler-Iy ss he had entered.

Distress and uader- •xxowrishrnent and starvation ran rife through the land. The situation grew so serious that Ahab an<i Obadiaii left their usual responsible stations and cr: horseback searched out the land for -water with \v*h!eh they hoped *o save huiaan life and livestock. In the- meantime when Elijah left the palace he was told by Jehovah to hide himself by the brook of Cherith. east of the Jordan. He remained there for a considerable period of time. He was miraculously fed: the ravens brocgrat him bread and meat in the morning: and the same fare in the afternoon but by an<3 by tbe brook wns dried up. Elijah was caus^t J= the web that he had at the instance Jehovaii laid down over the whole land. At this juncture Jehovah told him to go to the city of Zarephath in the land of Phoenicia that he had commanded a widow woman to sustain him. ".Vhen he reached there he found a. most uninviting picture. Out by the villasre grate he saw a poor lone figure., evidently under-nourished, probably clad in rags, gathering sticks with which to cook. lie told her to brins Iiim a drink of water ai>d as she started to obey he toJd her to brinsr him also a morsel o? bread. The nor thins then confessed that she had only a handful of mea- in the barrel and a little oil in the cruse, that she was then gathering sticks to cook this !i:tle mite that she and her son might eat it and die. The prophet then told her to obey his request and that the meal In the barrel and the oil in the cruse would not waste. She obeyed him and he locgred with her many day?: and both she and her househoM arid the prophet ate from the Tneaarer supply and it was not exhausted. In the meantime •s. further incident occurred that deserves recognition here. The woman was ai idolatress. Ker chi2d fell sick and so desperately !H that in a few moments it was dead in her arms. She then reproached the prophet for ca.usii5Er her to sin asrainst ihv BEALL'S GREATEST MEN! Share In These SAVINGS! Everything tor the rna n and bov ? n COQ ! summer appsrei!

Soon after this instance the prophet, received his marchinsr orders again. He was teld to go back and stand before Ahab. \\-ithoui faiterins he -wear back He first came in contact with Obadiah as he and the- king: "were searching the land for water holes. Obadiah fell on his face in honor a.nd recognition of the prophet, for lie knew him. He told him to go and teil Ahab that Klijah was come. Obadiah begged to be relieved, he said the king would kill him. that every nook and corner of the empire had been searched for the prophet, inquiry had been made in neighboring states, the king no doubt believing that if he could capture the prophet and put him to death that the drouth would be ended. Assured by the prophet. Obadiah found the king and brought him to the prophet. Ahab dc-nounced Elijah : as tlxe troubler of Israel, £lijr_h rebuked him and told him that his sin and sinful leadership -was re- : sponsible. « He then commanded the king to • including the prophets of Saal. to Mount Cariae!. \Vhen the great ; assembly was ready the old prophet stepped forth and said to the vast throngs gathered there. "How long will you halt between two opinions? If Baa! is god. worship him, and if Jehovah is god. -worship him." He said, "I stand alone as a prophet of Jehovah: there are 450 prophets of Baal here and 400 prophets of Astaroth. Bring two bullocks, one for me and one for them, Let them be slaughterotl and lain upon the altars and the cod "who answers by fire from, heaven, let him be God." The prophets of Baal had their first trial "Ajvich lasted from the early morning ur.tii three o'clock in the afternoon. In their desperation they leaped upon the altar, gashed themselves but there -was no answer. Then Elijah called to the people and said. "Come rsear me, T " The altar of Jehovah had been prepared, the bullock slain, anc upon it- He saJd "Xow bring tvater and pour :t upon the sacrifice an-I upon the wood." Then he said. "Do it a?ain." and then the tr.lra time. Then he t^aid. "Fill the altar with water."
