i •TRUST IN HIM AT ALL TIMES. A GREAT BATTLE. i rhus did David write. The wurds are very easy to pen. No profound wisdom is required to put such words into a sentence. Any one can utter them without an> hard mental effort. Almost every one will &ay that the truth conveyed in these words is ? rea- sonable one, and that the sentiment is a beautiful one. And what Christian is there that onoh> to trust in God a rQt r^fí them part?" or that says^: •Sometimes we may trust in the Lord, but there are times when we need not"? Certainly, no Christian, when looking at these words, will say that he ought not to trust God at all times. No Christian cares to say. or feels like saying that as a theory—indeed, as a principle— these words ars not worthy cf all ac- ceptance, and should be the ruie of all lite. But how is it about the practical side of the question? Is there any flinching when one attempts to put these words into practice in all of the circumstances of life? Do all Christian...

w H SENSATIONAL PREACHiNG. BY REV. DAVII) JAMES BURRELL, D. D. The sensationalism of the present day pulpit is of three kinds. rhe first is pulpit buffoonery; that is, the use of unseemly mode^ of speech, vulgarisms, or current phrases not adapted to the sacredness of the house of God. It is an easy thing for a pas tor to force himself into public notice if he hjfs no cornpunc&Qns against stoop ing.£ A1 1 ' V1 - "V til e malapropos.

THE AIM OF COMFORT. "^1 Comfort is a word which in its com mon use has lost something ot its orig i nal robustness. Comfort is regarded as something which calms the agitated and storm-swept hear*. It is regarded as soothing, rather than stimulating: but in its true meaning, comfort is something much nobler than the mere consoling of the troubled spirit. No ^mother ^comforts U]e one ¡es aw¡ fry Sis te as he lies in her soft, warm, sheltering arms. There is something analogous to this in divine comfort: "As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I way of testifying It is a way that we can ail adopt if we will. Christian men and women can all say that. I do not forget that there are indirect ways of spreading the Gospel.
