The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. I,etter from Boston. UY W. H. ROGERS. The religious event of the week in Boston has been the celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of the Baptist Missionary Union. They came in such numbers as that they made their presence felt even in a large city like Boston. The total receipts of the Missionary Union last year were more thau $415,000. The Union sustains 279 missionaries in foreign fields, where it has 2,076 preachers, 1,316 churches, and 134,434 members. Ten thousand converts and more were baptized in 1888. In the number of churchmembers, churches and missions, it is the largest missionary organization in the world, although there are several societies that raise a larger amount of money annually. The American Board held the seventy-filth anniversary oi its organization in Boston in 1885, four years earlier, and made a showing of something over five hundred thousand dollars in its receipts. It also presented a grander array of...

2 The Blair Amendment and Sunday - Rest Bill • "Mix," Again* IJY C. W. COOPER. , Editor Missionary Weekly: It seems that my "long" article relating to the possibly wellmeant but mischievous scheme of forcing men to be religious has stirred the wrath of the "Field of the American Sab'bath Union." Heseems to think I have "fallen into the hands of the Seventh-Day Adventists" -and allowed them to "confuse" me, whereas 1 only wrote about a few truths, speaking of them summarily. This had the effect of causing him to imagine that I was "mixed," whereas what I should call a mix is his entire reply! My "mix" is simply the logical outcome of the proposed Amendment and Sunday-Rest Bill. The newspapers and public opinion "indissolubly" unite the two. The whole affair has a religious smack about it that is prominent in both the Amendment and ■the Rest Bill. To have observed -the •distinction specifically perhaps might have been better, but one follows the other in the end. I would remind the "S...

INTRODUCTION.—After the institution of the Lord's Supper, Jesus delivered the discourse to the disciples found in the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth chapters of John. They then went oat to the Mount of Olives. While Jesus was delivering this discourse Judas was arranging with the Pharisees the details of the betrayal. On His way to the Mount of Olives, Jesus again speaks of His approaching death and His desertion by His disciples, and warns Peter of his fall. He comes to Gethsemane,where He prays in great agony, which causes Him to sweat great drops of blood. The disciples slept while He was suffering this bitter agony. Excusing them for their apparently unfaithful ind...

6 The Value of Man. BY W. H. APPLEGATE. "When I consider the heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stare, which Thou hast ordained; what is man that Thou art mindful of him?"Psalm viii: 3, 4. David was a student of the heavens, and whether he saw them in the day-time or in the night-time they filled him with wonder and admiration. He saw in them the glory, grandeur, and power of God. It was a beautiful, clear, moonlight night; the moon had just risen above the eastern horizon, and the blue dome of the heavens was filled with brightly shining stars, when David looked up and began to contemplate the works of God. As he saw the planets sweeping on ward in their orbits, and the starry veil passing noiselessly over him, he was filled with wonder and amazement at thevastness of creation, and was led to meditate upon the wonderful works of God, and finally began to contrast himself with the rest of God's creation and see what a small part of it he was —how insignificant he app...

One day, when they were alone tof ether, the child said: "Miss ones, I wish that you would stay at our house always." The prospective bride, with a sweet blush, resnonded: "Do you like me so well that you would be glad to have me for a sister?" "Yes," said Anna; but that's not what I was thinking about. When you are not here John is horrid. He scolds us little ones and bangs us about all the time." Miss Jones was startled. She had thought that John was a Sarticularly amiable young man. he had noticed, with great satisfaction, how kind he was to the younger children when in her presence. Was it possible that this was all put on ? She would not for the world marry a man who was really cross and harsh to such a little darling as Anna, She determined to investigate the matter.

Reduced rates to the Lynchburg Workers' Meeting will be given on all roads. See announcement in this paper. It is hoped the meeting will be practical and profitable. Richmond.—There have been no responses as yet to the call of the Sundayschool Board from the different Sundayschools of the district.

2 Young: Men in tbe Church. HY LEVI MARSHALL. The influence of Christ's teaching was to kindle enthusiasm especially in the hearts of young men. 1. Let us notice the importance of gaining young- men for Christ. They are most susceptible to change from conviction, for the ties of prejudice do not hold them so firmly as in after years. Jesus was opposed by the old. It was the young men who followed Him. The youth of Judea and Galilee had a vision of better things in Christ. They desired to rise above the walls of their own selfish natures and have such a view of a Savior that they might live in the Spirit and forget the flesh. It was natural for Jesus to enlist the attention of young men with Hisdivinetruth, for He himself was young. If when older in years He could have been more effective, God would have prolonged His earthly life. If men are not won to Christ when young they will not likely ever come. Religion is easiest received into an open heart, a tender conscience, and warm aff...

His teaching and disciples, sent Him on to the high priest, Caiaphas. (John xviii: 1!)—24.) The scene of the lesson for to-day is in the palace of Caiaphas, where tl.e Sanhedrim had met for private examination of the charges against Him. This meeting was an irregular one, being gathered hastily in the night, contrary to law, and had to be adjourned before sentence could be passed. The Sanhedrim had power to try those charged with capital offenses, but no power to execute the sentence of death. (John xviii: 31.) "Throughou...

MAY 30, 1889. It noard, who was until recently £ command of the English garrison stationed at Ivarronga, on Lake Nyassa, is on his way to London alone. Serious apprehensions are entertained for the gafetv of the garrison, who, it is reported, are hemmed in by hordes of hostile natives. Commander Cameron is out in appeal for funds to organize an expedition for their relief. He believes that unless steps are taken at once to rescue them from thenperilous position the entire gairison must be annihilated. Advices from Zinzibar bring appalling accounts of the ravages of disease among the British and German ships in those waters. There are many cases of dysentery and fever in the English ships, and the German vessels are in even a worse condition. The corvette Carvalla is rendered entirely helpless, having half her crew down with fever. Three of the men died in twenty-four hours.

6 Milligan College. The writer has just returned irom attending the Commencement at Milligan College, having been invited there to deliver some addresses. Commencement day was May 14th, 1889. The names of the graduating class were. Miss Annie M. Preston, Virginia; Mr. Charles G. Price, Mr. Frank U. Lore, Tennessee, and Mr. H. 11. Garrett, Virginia. The work being done at Milligan deserves to be better known. It is only a few months since I so much as heard of the college. After coming to Kuoxville I gathered from the reports of students and others that it was a place where the manner of living was at the extreme of simplicity, but which had about it nevertheless some subtle charm of helpful power which created an unwavering enthusiasm of loyalty to the college. Young peeple who had been reared in luxury and in the excitement of city life were loud in their praise 3 and eager to goback. When I stepped off the train at the romantic station about a mile distant I could see anxious susp...

May 30, 1889. The Treatment of Boys. BY KATE UPSON CLARK. f Not long ago, at a concert where there were no reserved seats, two neatly dressed, brightfaced little boys, perhapstenand twelve years old, respectively, arrived early and took possession of two of the best seats in the house. It was perfectly proper that they should do th'.s, for they had come very early on purpose to get good places. They had scarcely seated themselves when an usher came forward with several fashionably dressed ladies, and, looking crossly at the boys, beckoned them to come to him. They obeyed, and were shown toother seats not nearly so good as their original oues, which they accepted unmurmuringly, while the ladies were given places from which the unoffending boys had been so unreasonably ejected. Presently, as the house filled up, the same usher again made the boys give up their seats to some more ladies, and move to still poorer ones. The boys did not look as though they liked this treatment, but "they...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. SERMON. The World's Dilemma. BY H. D. CLARK. • "As I passed by and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription 'To the unknown God. Whom, therefore, ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you."—Acts xvn: 28. The apostles did not seek out-of-the-way corners in which to plant the gospel, but the chief centres of civilization. They met two phases of opposition—blind Jewish prejudice, and blind Grecian skepticism. To the former the gospel was a stumbling-block, and the latter turned away from the foolishness of this barbarian religion. The latter type of opposition is especially active today. The scientific spirit aud the principle of political liberty, together with the growing fondness for luxurious ease, have led many to view Christianity as a troublesome restraint. Men boast of modern ideas and progress as did the ancients of their Hellenic culture,and the impotent philosophy of Athens finds its counterpart in the equally _ imSoten...

During this trial was fulfilled the prediction made to Peter in the thirtieth verse of the fourteenth chapter. Three times that night Peter denied Jesus, the last time with bitter oaths. But how different wns his conduct aiterwards from that of Judas. He deeply and sincerely repented, was forgiven, and proved the sincerity of his repentance by a long life of devoted service to his Master. 1 And straightway in the morning the chi...
