He offers to ask a favor from the king or head of the array (v. 13). This offer implies that Ellsha had Influence at the royal court. The woman's reply shows her truly to be a great woman. She did not desire to change the calm and quiet of her home for a place even In the royal court. Her answer also shows that her motive In extending generosity to the prophet was entirely unselfish, purely because he was God's propher. 2. Ellsha announces the giving of a son to her (w. 16, 17). Through Inquiry of GehazI It was discovered that this woman was childless. So the prophet made known to her that In about a year from that time she should experience the Joy of a mother. III.

The 160 children housed in the old row of residences in the city, which for 25 years had been the domicile of the Kentucky Children's Home Society, have moved to the country. They have left behind them the noise and bustle, to romp and play over the great farjn at Lyndon, Ky. They have moved into their cottage village. "From out of strange casements that cold gray day last week, 160 little faces peered with the first streaks of dawn, to look out upon entirely new fields.

She took hold of Ellsha's feet (v. 27). This was the eastern way of enforcing a petition. She passed by Gehazi. She would not be content with the servant when the master could be reached. 2. She chlded the prophet (v. 2S). "Did I desire a son?" This implies that it would have been better not to have had a child than to have lost him so soon. V. The Child Restored (vv. 1. Gehazl's fruitless errand (vv. He hurried away and placed the prophet's staff upon the child's face, but It did not revive. Perhaps the fault lay In Gehazi his lack of faith. The woman seemed to perceive hi& lack; she would not trust him. She would not go until Ellsha was willing to go along. This fruitless errand of Gehazi shows the worthlessness of the forms of religion when used by those who have no faith In them. 2. Ellsha's efficient service (vv. He went to the house where the dead child was. (1) He prayed (v. 33). He knew that no one but God could ,help, so he closed the door, shutting all others out. Our service to men should be preceded by prayer. (2) He stretched himself upon the child (v. 31). lie brought his warm body Into touch with the cold body of the child. God Messes and saves through the warm touch of those who are in touch with Him. After we pray we should get into actual touch with those dead in trespasses and sin. God's method of saving the world Is through the ministry of saved men and women. 22-28- Scranton, Pa., Jan. 10.

W. Inglls, president of the company. They came upon the body of Michael Kelly, a laborer. This spurred them on to new efforts and led to the hope that the missing men might be found near by. The task was very hazardous and the Workers had to move with great caution, because of the danger of further cavelns. The change of rescuing the three men alive grew fnlntec. as the hours passed. The fact that no sounds have been heard from tjie section of the mine where the men were trapped leads to the belief that they are dead.
