The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter From Boston. HY W. H. HOGEKB. jjro. J. H. 0. Smith's meeting in Boston is growing very encouragingly. Up to Wednesday night, April 10th, there had been nearly twenty additions, and a deep and healthy interest is developing itself in widening circles. The meeting is manifestly a sue cess already, and may yet prove a marked and glorious success. This will eladden hearts all over the land, and greatly stimulate the tireless pastor and his comE anion, whose indefatigable laors have contributed so much to bring it about. Bro. Darst is doing well in making himself and his cause well and favorably known among the preachers and churches in Boston. «»**** Our audiences and prayermeetings are largely increased in Swampscott since we came into our new house of worship. Better than this; the spirit and energy of our prayer-meetings has developed most, encouragingly. We should ever remember tnat the spirit of worship is vastly more than the place of worship ...

"Whatis mail that Tho» art mindful -of hint f" That it is dangerous to show man either his greatness or weakness, bis goodness or- meanness, is what I do not believe. There liave been times in his history 'when man has been as near to as he has been to God I "To show him his greatness and meanness at the same time is very beneficial, for the contrast brings him to his senses. The marks that sin has put upon him, his form and fortunes, makes him more than a mere subjeot for rhetoric; it constitutes him an object of deep meditation, and studv beyond limits, .Man's reasou, faculties, form, actios, apprehension, together with his whole history from the time he appeared on earth under the shadows of the Tree of Life to the place in the great Beyond, where he is once again to be sheltered under its boughs, is the study of studies.

PLACE.—The temple and the Mount of 'The Coming Again of the ACCOUNTS.—Matt, xxiv: 1-14; Luke xxi: 5-19. INTERVENING EVENTS.—After answering the questions which were the subject of the last lesson, Jesus put to the Jews a question which confounded them and put them to silence; but one which, if answered sincerely, would have opened their eyes to the truth of his claims. He now turned to the common people, who heard him gladly, and warned them against the scribes, Pharisees, and religious hypocrites, exposing their wickedness and false pretenses, and denouncing the judgment of God against them. He closes his address with his pathetic lamentation over Jerusalem. (Matt, xxiii: 37.) After this he teaches a beautiful lesson from seeing a poor widow cast a mite into the treasury. While in the court ...

While prayers ought never to be offered to the congregation, yet they ought to be offered for the congregation, and should, therefore, carry on their wings the since...

We do not think our North Carolina brethren are to blame for this poor showing, but fear the matter has not been properly presented to them. We took for better things this year. If we cannot report so many big meetings as our western brethren, let us show them that in regard to mission work at home and abroad we are united, liberal and enthusiastic. Now is the time to prepare tor our Annual District Co-opera-tion Meetings. The Misouri Christian Lectureship the Bethany Assembly and Illinois Encampment have already prepared their programmes. I would venture to say that with the exception of providing for the bodily comfort of delegates and visitors no preparation has been made for our conventions. Our Virginia churches always furnish a plenty to eat, but there is frequently a woeful deficiency in program me, nothing...

6 The Sunday-school Teacher. BY P. B. HAIil,. % The Sunday-school teacher accepts a position inferior to none in the field of Christian education. No work is so far-reach-ing in its results. The most lasting and the most productive are the impressions made upon the minds of the young. The Sunday-school teacher's work is principally constructive. There are natural tendencies to counteract and bad influences to over-rule, but no deep-rooted errors to pluck up before the building begins. He has a germ of divine possibilities to expand into a divine reality. The increase of the church is largely from the Sunday-school. This in itself is sufficient to show the magnitude of the teachers work. • The Sunday-school teacher of to-day is equal, if not superior, to the pastor as a factor in religious training. The teachers sow the seed—thoughts, cultivate the idea, and the pastor gathers in the sheaves. If it were a question of "honor to whom honor is due," the Sun-day-school teacher would be e...

"Everv time you start out on one of your trips I pray that vou may be converted before you return," said Mrs. Tracy to her handsome son, Will, as he was arranging his sample-book of elegant dress goods preparatory to a trip across the continent, as traveling salesman for Lord and Taylor's great New York importing house. "I feel reproached hourly that mv only son is not a Christian. You have opportunities of hearing the truths of the Gospel presented by a great many good and eloquent men in a variety of localities, and I can but wonder that your heart is not yet touched." "I know how you feel about it, little mother, but there is no use in preaching to a fellow just as he is starting off. The memory of my home influence is the best safeguard a young man can take against temptation. That is why I always come out here to your little Connecticut dove-cote to make my final preparations.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter from Boston. BY W. H. ROGERS. To-morrow is Easter Sunday. To an intelligent Christian every Sunday is Easter Sunday, in the real significance of the day thus designated. Appropriate to the day Will be the reading of the following touching incident. A paper is not published to meet the preferences or needs of any one class of people, but of all classes, and I feel sure there are those who will read this incident with deep interest and great Erofit. It appeared first in a 'etroit paper, and 1 take it to be true. There is a family in this city who are dependent at this moment upon a little child for all the present sunshine of their lives. A few weeks ago the young wife and mother was stricken down to die. The question arose among them who would tell her. Not the doctor! Not the aged mother, who was to be childless and alone. Not the voung husband, who was walking the floor with ♦ lenched haods and rebellious heart. Not—there was only one other, an...

2 Mountain Sifting*. BV CHAB. 8, LONG.^ The Resurrection. No. 4. The last article closed with a quotation showing the'contrast Paul makes between the natural and the spiritual bodies. The Chancellor continues his argument along this line as follows: "In this world the body is so organized as to correspond to the soul; in the resurrection the new corporeity will represent the spirit. Would you see how a great Christian thinker weaves into one pattern thoughts from nature and from Scripture? Verse forty five presents Paul in these words: 'It is written.'' Nature, though prolific of types, shadows, parables, cannot long detain him; and now he returns to the Mosaic account of the creation in the first and second chapters of Genesis. 'Adam was made a living soul.' —Chapter 2, verse 7. Animal he was in corporeal organization, placed at the head of the animal kingdom, sovereign ovei all creatures and things; aud, moreover, much else, for he was the image of God in his reason, intelligence,...

April 25,1889. I made of the labors of the young nisciples to bring their companions to Christ. Never did I see more quiet yet effective work done by young people for the Lord. They did not hesitate to aek their associates to take a bold stand for Jesus, and when some of them came they hastened to express their gladness. Out on the street and into the houses of the young went these youthful soldiers of the Cross, inviting many to come to the house of God. God saw their labors and blessed them. 3. The singing and prayers. From fifteen to twenty minutes were spent each evening in singing familiar and favorite songs. Everybody sang, and enjoyed it; occasionally we had special solos and duetts, which were highly enjoyed and productive of much good. The prayers were tender pleadings to the Heavenly Father to bless the meeting and enable us to win souls to Christ. 4. The preaching. This was wholly done by the resident minister, except one discourse by Bro. F. M. Rains, and the sermons wer...

6 A Widow's Cry. I will call myself the importunate widow, for I will, not cease to cry for help until the sympathy of our people are aroused. You cannot do a ipore needed work for the promotion of our Master's cause than to assist us in Charleston, S. C., to secure a church. We are doing; all that we can, but if you will just think one moment of the many difficulties that surround us, you will see that our endeavors (within ourselves) are almost (or altogether) in vain. Tbere are a great many wealthy churches in Charleston, but none that bears our name. Wouldyou not be glad to know that the first Christian church in Charleston was erected, and that you had contributed something towards it? 1 know you would; bo now, my dear reader, do as our Delaware sister has done. She is the first and only one who has responded to our earnest plea; may the richest blessings of our dear Master rest upon her. She has done what she could. When you read her letter, determine at once to do what you ca...

Mr. Murchison was always doing something queer, they said; and now he was actually getting a winter crop of hay from his meadow. Near by stood his old white mare, blanketed and patient. The fact was, the cold snap had come much earlier than usual, and had frozen the meadow before the second crop of grass was cut. The water in the swamp was lower than usual, and enough hay could be secured above the ice'to "bed down" a cow lor all winter. "Say, fellows," chuckled .Jim Sloan',! an ugly, cowardly boy from the village, "just shy a rock at the old mare, and she'll fo down on the ice like a load o' ricks!"

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter from Boston. BY W. H. lIOGERS. Last week's letter stated that Massachusetts was up to a white heat on the amendment question. The election is over, and constitutional prohibition is defeated by an immense majority—45,000. But since not half the voters of the State felt sufficient interest in the matter to come to the polls, the "whiteheat" assertion seems hardly sustained by the facts. Strong no-license towns gave a very large vote against constitutional prohibition. I would also qualify another statement of my letterthat in reference to the prayers being all on one side for the success of the amendment. It is simple justice to conclude that many thoroughly godly and intelligent men of the Highest standing who voted against the amendment do, nevertheless, earnestly pray for the destruction of the liquor traffic. These men must have felt very keenly the eulogies which were pronounced upon them by the liquor men, whose iniquitous tricks and insole...

2 Observance of the Lord'** Day u a Duty to God. BY F. D. POWEH % An address before the "Sabbath Observance Convention" at Richmond, Fa., April 16,1889. , The Jewish Sabbath was commemorative, moral, and typical. As acommemorativeinstitution, it reminded men of the origin of things; as a moral institution, it enabled him to grow in knowledge and virtue; as a typical institution, it begat in him a hope of an eternal Sabbath. Man needed it, God established it, and the highest obligation to sanctify it was an obligation to God. Under the Christian institution man is the same needy creature. His memory must be refreshed; his moral nature must be cultivated ; his interest in the future must be quickened. Would it not be remarkable if the Christian institution had no Sabbath ? Would not Christianity be imperfect without its day? Where, then, is this Sabbath? On what day does it occur? By what name is it known? Upon what authority does it rest? Opening the New Testament we learn that a Sab...
