MAY 2,1889. ' ■ . -\ * k # e o home to die and be buried with hie people. His sleep will be sweeter, and the dear old spot will be all the more sacred because his form lies there. May the Ood of all grace comfort his bereaved widow and the two children left behind, and ultimately bring all of them to glory, is my prayer. I see in the Missionary that Sister Kitty Perdue, wife of Bro. Jas. H. Perdue, of Georgia, is dead. I knew her in her young girlhood; saw her when she gave er heart to Jesus and was baptized. I was present when at the marriage altar she pledged to love and honor the husband, now left behind, until death did part, and never was there a wife more faithful in carrying out a pledge. She was afflicted long, but bore it all without a murmur, and is now at rest. Through sunshine and shadow she was the same faithful servant of God. The night was, as it is with all of us sometimes, dark; but her light never ceased to shine, and it seemed to shine all the brighter because of ...

6 paragraph* from the Pew. Dear Pulpit,—You incidentally alluded to the subject of dress. A word or two on that point. It is a safe mpxim, negatively stated, that we ought to do nothing to lessen our influence when a principle is not involved. The question of dress is very important, and demands much of our attention. One of Carlyle's best books was on tailoring. The habilitation of thought, the adornment of the mind, the clothing of the soul with all Christian graces, you esteem as a large part of your great work as a minister of Christ. You are called to lead the fashions by being an example to the flock, and to do this successfully you should pay some attention to external dress. We often suffer in silence on this behalf. It is a very delicate matter down here, and we are awfully sensitive about it. If your dress is neat, and your toilet properly arranged, we will not find any fault with the quality of the goods. Some one has suggested that well-dressed feet and neck-wear, nicely...

May 3,1889. ®H# SamtlßSlwU* Fanny** Hospital Cot. It seemed very strange that the great, crumpled sheet of paper should have been hidden, lying in wait as it were, behind the tree, and that a passing gust of wind should have blown it into the very eyes of Fleetfoot, the usually gentle pony, frightening him so that, forgetting nis little mistress on his back, he reared and plunged in a panic of fright. There was a swaying figure, a little scream, and then a confused heap of golden curls and blue riding-habit lying on the atone-paved street. Tender hands lifted Fanny, the doctors came and shook their heads gravely, and used long words as they told Mr. and Mrs. Martin that their little daughter would recover, but that she would have to lie in bed a good many weeks with her injured spine. That was a sorrowful decision for little Fanny, and very wearisome were the long days of confinement and . inaction, despite all that wealthy and loving parents could do for her comfort and amusement. ...

& VIRGINIA STATE WORK. Yiipiia Christian Missionary Society. Office of Sec'y and Trkas.,l May Ist, 1889. J We mailed several weeks ago circular letters to seventy preachers in the State, asking them to send us some names to whom we might apply for membership to the Virginia Christian Missionary Society, and as yet we have received only six answers to our request. Will each preacher give this matter his attention at once, and much oblige us? Now that the time is drawing near for our county churches to hold their meetings, we again offer to furnish young men to any churches that will form themselves into circuits and give them at least two months' good work. These young men come from the colleges during vacation. If you want them, write ns at once. It is time the Sunday-schools werecommencing to make arrangements for Chil-dren's-dav, which should' come in June. Make this the day for the children, and they will raise a large collection to be divided between State Work, Fore...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. K.etter from Boston. BY W. H. SOGERS. "I love my party," says one. "I love my country," cries another. "1 love humanity," exclaims the third. The first man has a little heart in which nestles an evil principle that has proved the source of unmeasured evil. The second man lives on a higher plane, but if his country is the limit of his love, that love is all too small, and 1 here are interests to be conserved beyond this man's strength or wisdom. To the third man, the lover of humanity, must country and Humanity alike look as to theii' best and wisest friend. Not partyism, nor yet patriotism, but Christianity, which represents the love of God and man, is our hope. President Hayes said: "He serves his party best who serves hjs country best." Let me add: He serves his country best who serves humanity best, and he best serves humanity who best serves God. That constitutional government which has just celebrated its second centennial was founded not upon par...

2 A Uving Sacrifice. —— • "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."—Rom. xii: 1. Is there not a deeper and more comprehensive meaning in this Scripture than we generally attach to it? Does not the term "bodies" in the above text include our entire capabilities—physical, moral, mental, and spiritual? If I should say to a friend, I make you a present of this purse, he would not understand that I intended the purse only, but what it contained also. Our bodies are not of any great consequence, and are not the important thought in the text. That which is represented by the bodies is the thing of consequence, and is that which we should bring"acceptable"to God. Our bodies are only the casket that contain the precious jewels that are of great price. The jewels when entirely consecrated to God are a power—a mighty power for good. When thus consecrated, they are of a...

MAY 9,1889. Letter from Turkey. BY LUCY M..SHISHMANIAN. One confession yesterday. As the baptistery is undergoing repairs, the baptism will take place next Lord's-day—Easter Sunday. Seven baptisms are reported at Birejik, Mesopotamia, near the Euphrates. Also two baptisms are reported by the blind preacher brother in Mesopotamia, near the Tigris. Thus we are moving eastward all the time. Bro. Philip, our deacon, who was very ill a few weeks since, is well enough to attend the meetings again. It was noticed in the daily papers two weeks ago that General Wallace will return to Turkey as U. S. Ambassador, which we regard as an excellent bit of news. Two of the brothers in the Sevas church are in prisons-one for carrying religious warnings, in American and Turkish, on his shoulders through the streets attracting a crowd; the other for writing the words. After examining them in Sevas, they were sent to this city as political offenders; and, after being confined on the Stamboul side ten d...

May 9,1889. Judge when the great decision is to be made; He will give us the benefit of His loving, tender nature. But if we are found guilty of murder in the first degree, which is to coldly reject Christ and His counsel, then He will be compelled to pass judgment against us. Oh! may humanity have mercv on itself and accept Christ. D. W. Wilson. Broken Bow, Neb. Societies.—This is an age of societies, so-called secret associa- . tions. When I was a boy, living as I did in this western country, I knew nothing—heard nothing —about secret societies, with one exeeption, that of "Know-Noth-ings," which continued but for a season. Later on there was a lodge of Masons chartered at the village nearby,and I remember well the prejudice and suspicions held i:y most people against them. Uncanny stories were told of their doings, and fearful pictures drawn of their power and willingness to do evil. And this feeling against secret orders was the rule. But to-day a town of 2,oooinhabitantsthat do...

6 jfamtlg f&ivci*. Homely Stella. Little Stella Barber had one big trouble —at least she thought so. Every day it weighed upon her. She was unhappy because she was so homely. At first she only thought about her forehead, and said to herself; "0 why did I have such a wide, ugly To rehead! O dear! O dear"' Then she forgot her forehead for a time and thought about her eyes. "Why couldn't I have pretty brown eyes like Chester?" she said. Then forgetting both forehead and eyes, she gave all her attention to what she called her "horrid little nose." After a time she gave up lamenting over each separate feature, and thought of, what seemed to her, "the general ugliness of the whole." Her mamma was a kind woman, who loved both of her children, but she had unconsciously gotten into the habit of caressing her pretty boy oftener than her plainer little daughter. Stella had sometimes heard visitors speak of "Mrs. Barber's beautitul boy," and had often seen tbem giving him attentions...

MAY 9,1889. The Fower oftorc. Love naturally beseeches, and does not command. The harsh voice of command is simply the imposition of another's will, and it Wongs to relationships in which the heart has no snare. But wherever love is the bond, grace is poured into the lips, and "I order" becomes "I pray." So that even where the outward form of authority is still kept, as in a parent to young children, there will ever be some endearing word to swathe the harsh imperative in tenderness, like a sword blade wrapped about with wool, lest it should wound. Love tends to obliterate the hard distinction of superior and inferior, which finds its expression in laconic orders and silent obedience. It seeks not /or mere compliance with commands, but for oneness of will. Its entreaties are more powerful than imperatives. The lightest wish breathed by loved lips is stronger than all stern injunctions—often, alas! than all laws of duty. The heart is so tuned as only to vibrate to that one tone. The ...

8 Three Words of Strength. There are three lessons I wpuld write— Three words, as with A burning penIn tracings of eternal light. Upon the heartß of men. Have Hope! Though cloudsenvironnow. And gladness bides her face in scorn, Put thou the shadow from thy browNo night but hath its mom. Have Faith 1 Where'er thy bark is driven, The calm's disport, thetempest'smirth, Know this: God rules the host of heaven, The inhabitants of earth. Have Love I Not alone for one; But man, as man, thy brother call; And scatter, like the circling sun, Thy charities on all. Thus grave these lessons on thy soul— Hope, Faith, and Love —and thou shalt find Strength when life's surges rudest roll, Light when thou else wert blind. —Schiller. f£j(rte# fvxrm tlje VIRGINIA. Axton, April 27, 1889.—Since writing I held a meeting of three days at Mayo, with four additions and a prospect for many more, but owing to engagements made ahead we were compelled to close. From there I went to Horse Pasture, to regular app...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. I,etter from Boston. BY W. H. ROGERS. Your correspondent writes under the irresistible spell of a glorious spring morning. My soul would receive violence from the irreverence that would break the charm. Is not that man to be pitied who, in his utter lack of sentiment, sees nothing worthy of place in a religious journal in the charms and glories of nature? Is it a vapid thing, worthy only of sentimental school girls, to write of the beauties of what God hath made? Let such a man develop the neglected part of his nature by reading carefully the one hundredth and fourth psalm. Thus he will have new cause to rejoice in Him who maketh the outgoings of the morning and the evening to rejoice. In every sound that greets my ear this morning there is music, and in everything upon which my eye rests' there is beauty. We are unaccustomed to so early a spring in our New England climate. The leaves seem to enlarge with a suddenness that can be seen, and the blossoms...

2 A Welcome to Jabec Hall. An address delivered by I. J. Spencer, Friday night, May 3rd, at Seventh-street church, at the public reception tendered to Bro.

Hall personally before his visit to Richmond. 1 met him about fifteen years ago for the first time. He was then pastor of the Euclid avenue church, in Cleveland, Ohio, tor which church he has labored worthily and successfully from 1872 until the present. Coming, then, as he is from Cleveland in the North to Richmond in the South, from Ohio to Virginia, I, as a native of the Buck aye State, having him 'by ten years, extend him greeting.

Leevjlle, Tenn. In our council we should counsel each other. My first piece of advice, is to write your articles very plainly. Don't get in a hurry and write what you do not intend to say. If the writer of an article in No. 18 of the Missionary had taken this advice, he would not have been made to say the opposite of what he intended to say. In the article, "The Rich Young Man," he is made to say that the young man had not kept the commandments just as the best people of that day kept them. It may be that another devil has be...

6 family The Lesson Elsie Taught. She met Dick in front of her own door. He had nd hat on, and a handkerchief was tied over one eye. Dick was one of the scholars in the Mission School, and one ox the hardest to manage that she had. He was always getting into what he called "scrapes." "Why, Dick!" she said, stopping before him, speaking in a troubled voice, "what is the matter? Is it your eye? How did you get hurt ? O Dick! you haven't been fighting again?" "Yes'm" said Dick, with a good-natured grin, but whether the answer referred to the fighting or the hurt eye, he did not say. Elsie, however, seemed to understand. "O Dick!" she said again. "I am so sorry to hear it! You told me you wouldn't. What is your word worth if you break it so easily?" But now Dick looked dignified. "No, I didn't," he said with more honesty than politeness. Dick was never very polite; he had no one to teach him how to be. "I said I wouldn't if I could help it; and this time I couldn't help it. There was a ...

May 16,1889. fhe Literal Sense. BY T. J. STONE. W. D. Pollard, in the Missionary Weekly of April 25th, speaking of the Noachian (Huge and its literal interpretation, says. "The less we preach these thing in a literal sense the better, as they only elicit scorn, ridicule, and contempt from the skeptical world. Like men let us face these subjects, tear away the husks, crush the hard shell, and when the kernel is reached it will be sweet to both Christian and infidel." Now it strikes me that we shall find some difficulty in this husk-tearing and shell-crushing business, and by the time we • bring out of all the hard nuts kerlels that are sweet to infidels, many of them will be found exceedingly bitter and nauseating to Christians. Let us look for a moment at only a few of the hard shells that must be crushed for the satisfaction and delight of the skeptic, if we wish to escape his "scorn, ridicule, and contempt." For the "literal flood" is not the only one. There is what he is pleased ...
