March 28, 1889. and soul-destroying heresy that robbed Christians of their hope and of their Savior, for if Christ was not raised then their hopes were vain and they were still in their sins. Canon Farrar, in speaking of this chapter, says: <i No human words ever written have brought such comfort to millions of mourners as the words ol this chapter, which forms a part of the burial service of almost every Christian community. It is the more deeply imprinted on the memory of men because it comes to us in the most solemn hours of bereavement, when we have most need of alivingfaith." In this chapter we have 1. The evidences of Christ's resurrection. 2. The resurrection of Christ as the foundation of our faith in a oeneral resurrection from the dead. 3. The results to be deduced from the Savior's resurrection. 4. The present life of believers as an argument in favor of the resurrection. 5. The use of analogies that help us to understand the subject; and, 6. Conclusions and ex...

6 At Clinrcli. I took the road That eastward cleft the towii and sought the bridge, That spanned the river, reaching which I crossed, Then deep within the stripes of springing corn I found the shadow of an elm, and lay Stretched on the downy grass for listless hours, Dreaming of days gone by, or turning o'er With careless hand the pages of a book I had brought with me. Tired at length, 1 rose, And, touched by some light impulse, moved along The old familiar road. I loitered on In a blind reverie, nor marked the while The furlongs of the time, until the spell In a full burst of music was dissolved. I startled as one startles from a dream, And saw the church of Hadle.v, from whose doors, Open to summer air, the choral hymn Poured out its measured tides, and rose and fell Upon the silence in broad cadences, As from a far, careening sea, the waves Lift into silver swells the sleepless breasts Of land-locked bays. I heard the sound of flutes And hoarse, sonorous viols, in accord With hap...

Mahch 28,1889. £amtl» (&ivcle. story of Grumble Tone. There was a boy named Grumble Tone, who ran away to sea. "I'm sick of things on land," he said, "as sick as 1 can be! A life upon the bounding wave will suit a lad like me." The seething ocean-billows failed to stimulate his mirth, For he did not like the vessel or the dizzy rolling berth, And he thought the sea wus almost as unpleasant as the earth. He wandered into foreign lands, he saw each wondrous sight, But nothing that he heard or saw seemed just exactly right; And so he journeyed on and on, still seeking for delight. He talked with kings and ladies fair, he dined in courts, they say, But always found the people dull, and longed to get away To search for that mysterious land where he should like to stay. He wandered over all the world; his hair grew white as snow. He reached that final bourne at last where all of us must go, But uever found the land he sought. The reason would you know? The reason was that, nor...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter From Boston. HY W. H. HOOKItS. The Primitive Church was a unit, because Christ and the (rreat facts of his death, resurrection and coronation, were the staple ol apostolic preaching to the ignoring of all other issues. The only creed was that which is formulated in the Good Coniession which was pressed to the point of submission and conviction upon all but the incorrigible. Christian unity will advance to-day in just the proportion that the preaching of to-da.y makes prominent the same divine Person and the same divine facts. The thrusting of other issues to thfc front will be only divisive. „ * * # * * w Duty aud destiny make up man's dignity. Christ's death is the strongest, enforcement of duty. Christ's resurrection is the certain pledge of destiny for the man who does his duty. And man's duty as enforced by the one is inseparable from man's destiny as pledged by the other. It is in vain to talk of morality apart from gospel. When the latter ...

2 Mountain Sittings. BY CHAM. S. LONG. "How are the dead Raised up? and with what body do they come?" are questions of very great interest to every one who looks forward to another life under different circumstances from those which now surround us. There can be no doubt but what the resurrection of the dead is the specific revelation of Christianity. Whatever the facts may be concerning the intermediate state, or the condition and existence of the spirit between death and the resurrection, this one fact is clear, that the resurrection of the body sufficiently fixes for us the form of the immortal life, and gives definiteness to our conceptions of it. If we understand the revealed method, then there is evidently the maintenance of individuality in the resurrection state, and, if individuality, then the continuous identity of the individual, which forms a reasonable basis tor the so much desired Heavenly recognition. While it is generally conceded that the dead are to be raised up, t...

Jehovah wiis King ol the Israelites When they wished to have a man-king like the heathen nations, He permitted it; but Samuel, His prophet, selected the king and anointed him to the office, even Saul, who was simply to reign as God's servant, God ruling through him. Samuel, as God's prophet, set aside Saul because he did not strictly obey Jehovah in his ruling, and selected and anointed David to be king of Israel just because David would recognize Jehovah as the real king, and himself as only His agent. Because the Israelites forsook Jehovah, disobeyed His statutes and thus rejected Him as King, judgment after judgment overtook them; a portion went into captivity and never returned, and those that remained in India came under the yoke of the Ciesars. But the prophets foretold a Messiah, one of David's line ...

6 ©tvcU. Something Great. The trial was ended—the yigil past; All clad in his arms was the knight at last, The goodiest knight in the whole wide land, With eyes that shone with a purpose grand. The king looked on him with gnu;ions eyes, And said: "He is meet for some high emprise." s To himself he thought: "I will conquer fate; I will surely die, or do something great." So from the palace he rode away; There was trouble and need in the town that day: A child had strayed from his mother's side Into the woodland dark and wide. "Help!" cried the mother with sorrow wild—"Help me, Sir Knight, to seek my child! The hungry wolves in the forest roam; Help me to bring my lost one home!" He shook her hand from his bridle rein: "Alas! poor mother, you ask in vain; Some meaner succor will do, maybe, Some squire or valet of low degree. There are mighty wrongs in the world to right; I keep my sword for a noble fight. I am sad at heart for your baby's fate, But I ride in haste to do something grea...

Apkiij 4, 1889. Mr. Gladstone. Mr Gladstone is by long odds the greatest living Englishman, Ind the best abused. Towering ' as he does head and shoulders above all English public men, he is not only the object of unbounded admiration 011 the part of his political followers, but also the target at which every splenetic tadpole on the platform and in the press fling their venom and xlirt. One requires to go out of England and view Mr. Gladstone as reflected in the unimoassioned though to and hearts of foreign peoples, in order to fully realize his greatness. The atmosphere of his own country is so charged with noxious elements that we -cannot there survey his commanding personality iu its just proportions. From no country canweobtain a better view of Mr. Gladstone than from America; and nowhere else does his greatness so come home to us. To one, like the present writer, who has lately escaped from the roar and tumult of the present feverish political strife in England, it is peculiarl...

Sweeney is suffering from bronchitis and has had to cancel his engagement *to evangelize in England. We copy the following from a Columbus (Ind.) paper: The large audience that assembled last night at the Tabernacle to bid farewell to Elder Sweeney were greatly surprised when that gentleman announced that he would not go to England. He has been troubled with a cough for two months, and it has recently developed into bronchitis, which his physicians say must be looked after at once. He talks some of going to the Rocky mountains for the summer, but as yet he has no definite plans. He will, however, at once quit all labor and make a business of getting well. NORTH CAROLINA.

2 "Business in Religion." BY BOOKER OAI^NETT. There is no sadder need than "business in religion," and yet "what is everybody's business is nobody's business," is a proverb as fully verified in the churches as anv organization extant. As I understand the subject here proposed for discussion, there are two, and but two, features involved, to wit: The spiritual and temporal department® of the churches as represented by the two classes of officers—elders and deacons—and the duty (business) of thechurch in the discharge of the obligations resting upon it in co-opera-tion with its officers. The first demand for business in religion is in the organization of a church. The evangelist having visited a community and enrolled a sufficient number of disciples, thev should come together for organization into a church. After reading an appropriate portion ot Scripture, and having in prayer invoked the presence and guidance of the only infallible Guide, they should proceed, in a most business-lik...

Certain of the Pharisees and Herodians came to Him with a question Concerning the payment of tribute to Csesar. They thought that His answer to this question must offend either the Romans or the Jews. His answer, "Render unto Qpsar the things that are Ctesar's, and unto God the things that are God's," unveiled their hypocrisy and silenced them. (2).

There are seven congregations of Disciples in Bradford county, and all these are now supplied with regular preaching —some one-half time. Several meetings were held during the winter, and quite a number added to the saved at Troy, Smithfield, Granville, and Grover—already reported in your paper. I commenced a meeting here in January, but on account of a severe cold was obliged to close the meeting after two weeks. Two persons were baptized.
