“Best” Books Young Men and Young Women will enjoy all of these splendid books By Josephine Hope Westervelt A story of a Christian young woman, whose consecration to the Master took her to Indo-China as a missionary, and a young man who believed that “we should practice religion as we do music or art, just to the extent that we enjoy it.“ The two were friends from childhood. He went to Indo-China as a magazine writer, determined to bring Mary Lois back as his bride. The story of how his plans were changed, and his life surrendered to God, is indeed very interesting. The book will help the youth of our land to see the great privilege of soul saving open to them in the untouched regions in heathen lands, and to give their lives to this service which is so rich in its rewards here and now. Cloth $1.50 The Green Gods

In the closing examination of a theological seminary, the professor gave the students a paper containing two subjects, “ The Holy Spirit and the D evil" and told them to write for half- an-hour on each of' the subjects. One o f the students wrote steadily for an hour on the Holy Spirit, and wrote at the bottom o f his manuscript, “ I have no time for the devil.”

After Admiral Dewey had conquered the Spanish fleet at Manila, the Spanish revenue cruiser Callao, which had been among the Southern Islands for sixteen months, knowing nothing o f the war, sailed into the harbor with the Spanish flag flying and asked for the Admiral o f the Spanish fleet. Several shots fired at her, convinced her that something was wrong. She hauled down her flag, and hoisted the white flag. A boat’s crew .of Americans boarded her and hoisted the Stars and Stripes. The Spaniards were caught because they were ignorant o f the war. A great many believers are caught by the great enemy o f souls, because they are ignorant of ;his devices. “I want you to spend fifteen minutes every day praying for foreign missions,” said the pastor to some young people in his congregation. “ But beware how you pray, for I warn you that it is a very costly experiment." “ Costly?” they asked in surprise. “Aye, costly,” he cried. “When Carey began to pray for the conversion o f the world it cost him himself, and it cost those who prayed with him very much. Brainerd prayed for the dark- skinned savages, and, after two years of blessed work, it cost him his life.” It is always a costly thing to give one’s self wholly over to the Lord, to be used as He wills in His service.

“ Bessus, a native o f Pelonia, in Greece, being seen by his neighbors pulling down birds’ nests, and destroying their harm­ less young, was severely rebuked for his cruelty. His excuse was that their notes were insufferable to him, as they never ceased twitting him for the murder of his father. Poor birds, they were innocent enough in the matter, but it was a guilty conscience which muttered its ceaseless reproaches in his ears.” Every sound is to the guilty conscience an accusing voice and a death- knell.
