The Missionary Weekly Vol. X. ANNOUNCEMENT! We call especial attention to • our Piospectus for 1889 on page 8. 1888. IIY .IAMEH VEHNON, Jit. Twelve lieavy shocks of brazen sound Just hammered on the air, Tell that the midnight hour hatli past; And, with it to the grave at fast Must go another year. Htrange that the tones which tell of death, Should also fell of birth: Be knell and happy greeting new, Be sad farewell and welcome too, Flung wide across the earth. The many hear the birthday real I hear the knell instead, They greet the new, I greet the old; They clasp the warm, I clasp the cold. The cold hands of the dead. They hope to find the living year With joys more thickly spread. As memory's grateful page I turn I dare not bid the newly born "Be better than the dead." Can moonlight be more beautiful, Or starlight holier seem; Can new sunrises shame the old, Or sunsets gild with finer gold The day's departing beam? Can black birds give a sweeter note Than those 1 heard in tune Or...

2 Studies In Sacred History. BY M. H. lIYAN. HIBIjE histouy—its aim. The history of the Bible is unique in itsaim. Other histories are writen with special reference to the achievements of an individual, the events of an epoch, the fortunes of a nation. Bible history is the history of a purpose. Had no other aim occupied the mind of the great Author of this work, than to record the history of individuals and nations, it would never have been written. Men can write their own histories without special divine directions. Had this been the object of Bible history it must be pronounced, from a modern stand point, a signal failure. But this was not its object. True, it records the actions of men and the fortunes of nations; but only in portion as these relate to its main object. This object is to set before the world the record of the inception, development, — and fulfillment of a Divine purpose. When man fell God purposed to redeem him. That purpose was forty centuries in process of devel...

family <&ivcle. Baby Gone to School. The baby lias gone to school; ah, me! What will the mother do, With never a call to button or pin. Or tie a little shoe! How can (<he keep herself busy all day With the little "hindering thing" away? Another basket to fill with lunch, Another ''good-by" to say, And the mother stands at the doortosee Her baby march away; And turns with a sigh that is half relief, And half a something akin to grief. She thinks of a possible future morn, When the children, one by one, Will go from their home out into the world, To battle with life alone, And not even the baby be left to cheer The desolate home of future year. She picks up garments here and there, Thrown down in careless haste; And tries to think how it would seein If nothing were displaced, If the house were always as still as this, How could she bear the loneliness f Facing the New Year. Mrs. Ayre woke on New Year's Day with a groan. It was a dark, drizzling mornin...

In the afternoon of the same day I saw a young man still in his teens, the son of e, recently widowed mother, passing my house in a beastly state oi intoxication. As I looked upon the sad sight, I thought of the pangs of that mother's heart when she should hear ot the disgrace of her boy, and I could not help but ask, ' How long, oh Lord, how long," will these human vultures be permitted to pray upon society, breaking hearts and desolating homes. 1 learned yesterday that there was a jug at the express office that had been waiting a claimant for about two years, the man who ordered it having died before it arrived. I remarked to my informant that if all who ordered jugs for yesterday...

6 SERMON. [Preached by Dr. M. D. lioge at the Old Market Hall, Richmond, Sunday evening, Dec.lfl.l The text was from Ecclesiastes viii: 11: "Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set iD them to do evil." A melancholy tone runs through the whole book of Ecclesiastes. It is the last of the three books Solomon wrote. It is not musical like his song, or cheerful like his Proverbs. It reminds us of the close of his own life —a life which began like a sweet spring morning, but ended like a cold dreary day in autumn. Those of you who" have been out on the ocean will remember the shrill, sad sound of the wind through the rigging of the ship on a bleak, dark day. A sad moan is heard through the whole book of Ecclesiastes, like the doleful wind of winter sighing through the leafless trees, or along the desolate fields in a night of cloud and gloom. Here in the text we have a statement of \vhat was once Solomon's own abu...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. otiav# BY NEIL MCLEOD. Church Extension.—lt is establishment and extension at once. Mere extension without establishment is of doubtful advantage. The condition and future of every church is not assured till it has a house of its own. The work of the "Church Extension Fund" should commend itself to every disciple of our Lord, who came to set up a kingdom that should never be destroyed but that abides forever. The Second Lord's-Day in January is the day appointed for a collection in all our churches for this Fund. Let those who have "Homes" remember them that have none. Do not shut up your bowels of compassion against them. How many of our old, established churches are suffering from chronic moral and spiritual constipation ! A good dose of "Church Extension" would greatly help and relieve them. 1 It may be disagreeable to take and painful in its operation, but the effect will be very salutary. Prepared by F. M. Rains. Trial package free. If you give it...

With toil, naught questioning if good or ill Were hers; soft lullabies she crooned at eve, Like poppies' breath fulling down tenderly On infant eyelids that gay sports would leave To nestle close and sleep uponherknee. Her life was colorless and commonplace, Devoid of poetry—l thought it so, For I was blind, and could not see the grace That grew through common duties; now 1 know, Since she is gone from me and all her cares, I entertained an angel unawares. —Zitella Cocke, in 'Ilie American Magazine for November.

January 10,1889. ®hi? Ifrtmtljj ©irclu* January. 0 the beginnings of things! Bright little springs in the mountains, From which great rivers down flow; The first pale pink ol the roses; The first white fall of the snow; Babies, the beautiful darlings, Dimpled and winsome and dear; The glow of the sky in the morning. And the first new days of the year. 1 love the beginnings of things! For then few feel stronger and braver; More ready to climb and to try; The old day of blunders is over, The time for mistakes is gone by, And some how or other the future Is fuller of light and of cheer, When a little maid peeps at the world, Through the first new days of the yeai! — Wide A nuke.

The suit promises to be one of the most important in the history...

6 God's Gilt to the 'World. BY W. H. APPJ-iEGATIJ. The season of joyful days is upon us, everywhere people meet with smiles and bid each other a merry Christmas. For weeks the shop windows in the cities have glistened and groaned with their burden of treasures. Tokens of affection are exchanged; the child gives with love some gift, made precious to the parent by the work of its hands; and the parent has remembered the chila. It is a season of re-union, the father, after a long absence, has returned home, ana the little ones gather around his knee, the children that have long been gone from the parental roof now visit their parents and the scenes of their childhood, old friends meet around the fireside and talk of other days. With what pleasure, what anticipated joys have the children, parents and friends looked forward to this Christmas day and will hail it with gladness. But there are thousands in our own land to whom this day will bring no joys. The widow and the orphan in their d...

January 10,1889. A Letter From Turkey. Dear Missionary : You are already informed of our pleasant trip from Lexington to Detroit, New York, Liverpool, London, and across the channel to Ostang Belg., and thence through Vienna by the new all-the-way-by-rail route our safe return" to Constantinople, by Mrs. Shishinanian's letter written shortly after our arrival here. Now I wish to write, as briefly as possible, how we found the work in this country and what has been done siuce our return. We found our little band of believers in this city as faithful as we had left them, but considerably weather-beaten. They had been subjected to all kinds of ridicule by the people whose religious leaders, taking occasion by our absence, had circulated false reports about us to dishearten them and keep others from attending their worship. But the Hand of God being upon them they were not left without encouragement. They had baptized four precious souls while we were away, though wedid not find but one...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Itlissumrivu ficltn BY NEIL MCLEOD. Isaac Errett is dead. He vyas the Presideut of the Foreign Christ inn Missionary Society from its organization at Louisville, Kv., in 1875, until his death. A warm, true hearted friend of missions, a liberal contributor, and a wise and safe counsellor, has passed away from us. but his work abides forever. We shall sadly miss him every where, but we must not lose heart through our sorrow, but with firmer faith devote ourselves to the cause that was so near to his heart, and is still so dear to ours. This will be sad news to our dear missionaries in foreign lands, who found in him so true and helpful a friend and brother. But I know that out of this universal sorrow will spring the fairflowers of a common charity, and sympathy that will redound to the furtherance of the gospel. The work to which he gave his life, in all its interests, will be dearer than ever to his friends; as the souls for whom the Savior died are pr...

2 AN EXEGESIS OF ROMANS VIII s 28-30. BY W. I;. HAYIIKN. This passage has become famous by reason of the duty it has been compelled to perform, in supportiug the old Augustimnn theory of Divine sovereignty, foreknowledge, predestination and unconditional election. ('alvinists, high and low, and all intervening degrees, find liere the sheet-anchor of their favorite •dogma. When driven from every outpost along the line of scriptural defence, they confidently retreat to this supposed impregnable fortress of apostolicauthority, and courageously defy the whole army of rabbinical doctors of Armenian divinity. This is the key to the whole terri - tory of Calvinistic thought. If this ancient fortress is once reduced, the entire disputed field will be an easy conquest. What truth, then, has the inspired penman deposited in these words? Let us drop the plummet of reflecting mind into these turbid theological waters and see if they will not readily clarify. This language of inspiration will de...
