In whatever business or enterprise one may be engaged in. if he lag behind, or continue to use womout or obsolote methods, failure, and only failure, is the result. This is true of the merchant, the manufacturer, the professional man and the laborer as well. The same principles which apply to secular life apply to religious en terprises. In this age of change and advancement, methods must continually be altered to meet changed conditions. Lhe cliuich that disregards these laws dies, the Sunday-school that remains from year to year in the same groove is without power and without life. elements of success. First.

I The Scriptures have diving, a way of calling A Grace. things, we sometimes think very disagreeable, by very pleasing names. The Apostle, speaking of other christian graces, speaks of giving as "this grace also." Giving may be i and should be a grace. Giving may be a graceful, beautiful, winsome thing. To be sure it is not a grace always. The truth is, it is rarely a grace. Often it is a most disagreeable and painful, and sometimes a down right ugly thing. This should never be, there is no duty more incumbent up» a us than to make our giving a grace. He who gives cheerfully transforms a duty into a grace. There is no place in our christian service where sunshine is more needed than just here. Sorrowful giving is most unsightly and forbidding. Receiving a christian contribution often takes on the serious and sorrowful aspect that chara...
