          SOME PROVIDENTIAL MEN AND MOVEMENTS IN SACRED AND
                      SECULAR HISTORIES.

                     By President A. H. Hill.

                The Third in the Series "Joseph."
  Joseph is an interesting person for study, mainly so because of
the beautiful virtues that adorned his character. He was the elder
son of Jacob by his beloved Rachel. He was a child of prayer.
"When the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb; but
Rachel was barren. And the Lord remembered Rachel, and God
hearkened to her and opened her womb. And she conceived and
bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach: And she
called his name Joseph; and said, the Lord shall add to me another
son." Gen. 29:31, 30:22-25.

given in answer to prayer. The world would be better if every
mother was a praying mother. Joseph was a favorite son of Jacob
and as such, was hated by his brethren. He was a child of trials,
a victim of persecution, but in all of these things, he was refined
and developed for the purpose for which our Heavenly Father reared
him. The greatest lives with but few exceptions have been reared
under the rod of afflictions and severe trials.
  '"The night brings out the stars." Friction brightens the metal.
Trials, when historically borne reflect the virtues that adorn noble
character. In the fiery furnace, the Son of man walks with the
worthy and delivers them.
  I. Joseph's trials-His trials extend over a broader field of cir-
cumstances than any other subject of Holy writ, the Saviour ex-
cepted.
  (a) His trials at home.
 His trials were in his own household. He was hated of his breth-
