The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. I.etter from Boston. BY W. H. ROGERS. One of the best statements concerning the Disciples of Christ is that embodied in an "Open Letter" by B. B. Tyler. If a man once get it into his hands he is likely to be so taken with one or the 'other ot its interesting features and taking headings as that he will have finished the reading before he lays it down. That is "simple, sensible, rational, tangible," he will say, "and I wish there were more of it." It is simply a bright, terse, friendly little letter, telling in a very interesting way the origin, achievements, aim, spirit, and the faith and practice of the Disciples of Christ. It puts an old theme in a fresh and original way. The author seems to have said to himself: "I wish to prepare something in a style that will secure the attention of the religious reading public." He has succeeded admirably. But if I write much more my review of the tract will be longer than the tract itself. Get it and read it, an...

2 My Father's Life and Death. BY JAMES VERNON, JK. n Dear Missionary:—l have just returned from Canada, whither 1 was summoned, May 10th, by the sudden illness of my father. He died May 22ud, aged seveutygeven years. Perhaps the following account may be of interest to your readers. He belonged to the class kuown in Eugland as the "agricultural laboring class." By this is not meant the agriculturalist that owns the land, nor the man that rents the land, but the man that works for the man that rents the land. There are eight millions of this class in England, and a gentleman who has made the matter a careful study for forty years says that in all that time he has never known but two such men to rise above ( heir class. Some idea of their condition may be formed by what my father told me the day before he died. He said that he worked on a certain job for two years. He walked six mil'es to his work every morning and six back at night. He was on the work at six, and, excepting an hour fo...

Seize the Opportunity. He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much. This truth has had many illustrations in history. When one enters the open door of an opportunity he knows not how large a room awaits him. Largeness of soul rather than largeness of sphere should be sought. The following story, with its moral, is well told by the Christian Union: "A few years ...

June 27, 1880. Word before him, violates His law, sins presumptuously and enormously before Him, and deprives himself probably of extenuating circumstances. Peter gays, "But chiefly them that walk alter the fleshin the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed," etc. Deliberate, persistent sinning; against light and knowledge is the worst form of sin, and, so far as I can see, is least entitled to mercy.

6 "No Harm In It." il BY OTIE J. YAGER. "Well, Mary, where shall we go to-day. Last Sunday we were at Jake's; Sunday before, at Mr. Jones'; and Sunday before— Oh! 1 have it, let's go to see Sam Hickle." "No, indeed, 1 will not go to Sam Hickle's. His wife is one of your long-faced Sunday Christians; and I don't feel disposed to sit down to a dinner of cold eggs, chicken, etc. Let's go where we can count on a good dinner. What do you say to Bettie Smith's." Thus the conversation ran at the breakfast table of my eldest brother, who was a deacon in the Baptist church, and whose thoughts this bright Sunday morning should have been turned to holier things. I had only arrived the previous day, and experienced quite a shock to see the state of my brother's feelings in regard to his religious duties. But I ventured to remonstrate: "Why visit at all to-day ? God gave us this day to worship and glorify Him; why not go to church, and take all of the little ones with you?" "Oh, we have preachin...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. I.etter from Boston. HY W. H. WOOERS. The daily press of our great cities is averse to the agitation of the question of Romanism and the public schools, for obvious reasons. Great mass-meet-ings which the Protestants have held have not been mentioned in leading Boston dailies; but even these papers cannot let pass, without rebuke, Cardinal Manning's statement thnt our public schools ''tend inevitably to destroy all that is worth saving in American Christianity," a statement which is supported by grossly manipulated statistics." The agitation continues in a healthy way in Boston, and it is hardly creditable to one's intelligence to intimate that there is really no occasion for it. We had better have it, with its accompaniments of erratic, heated, and exaggerated statement, than to be without it entirely. Nor is it conducted entirely by men of the Dr. Fulton stamp. Men equally eminent, but of a more quiet spirit, are equally zealous and efficient. Meanti...

2 Commencement Exercises of Kentucky University, Lexington, Ky. Most readers of the Missionary know that Kentucky University for a number of years has comprised the "College of Liberal Arts," and "College of the Bible." Henceforth, in addition to these, there will be a college of law, a normal department, and chair of civil engineering. The final exercises ot last session closed on Thursday, June 13th. That the commencement exercises were not of an uninteresting nature was attested by the throng that filled Morrison chapel whenever the doors were thrown open to the public. Although the standard of literary excellence which public exercises must possess in this "Athens of the West," to demand any notice has been greatly raised by the character of the men furnished by the lecture association, which has provided for the students and citizens the very best talent of the American Lyceum, still, whenever invitations are given by any oneot the four societies of the university, or by the se...

PLACE.—Shiloh, the religious capital of Israel, seventeen Guiles north of Jerusalem. Sl' li.l ECT.—Early Piety. INTRODUCTORY.— Israel has been in Palestine now about three centuries. From the time of Joshua to that of Samuel there whs a decline of the people. Forgetting God's law and falling into idolatry, from associations with the nations by whom they were surrounded, both the national and spiritual life of Israel were nearly lost. The people were well-nigh now a subject race. The Philistines had overrun the country aud so far reduced them as to close every smith's forge, aud the...

6 family ©tvclc* I Used to Kill Birds. BY M. C. EDWARDS. I used to kill birds in my boyhood— Bluebirds and robins and wrens — I hunted them up in the mountains, I hunted them down in the glens. I never thought it wus sinful— I did it only for fun— And I had rare sport in the forest With the poor little birds and my gun. But one clear day in the spring-time I spied a brown bird in a tree, Merrily swinging and chirping, As happy as bird could be, And raising my gun in a twinkling, I fired, and my aim was too true; For a moment the little thing fluttered, Then off to the bushes it flew. I followed it quickly and softly, And there to my sorrow I found, Bight close to its nest full of young ones, The little bird dead on the ground! Poor birdies! for food they were calling; But now they could never be fed, For the kind mother-bird who had loved them, Was lying there bleeding and dead. 1 picked up the bird in my anguish, I stroked the wee motherly thing That could never more feed its dear ...

July 4, 1880. A Brave tittle Dutch Boy. The country of Hollaud, iu Europe, is almost surrounded by the sea. To be sure, there is nothiugstrange in that, for all islands are entirely surrounded by the sea. But Holland is a low country, and if the people had not built high banks to keep the water off, whenever there was a storm, or a very high tide, it would wash right over the whole land, and sweep away all the houses and drown the people. The Holland folks built the banks many years ugo. They are called dykes. They are not only high, but so thick through there is room for a broad street on top. Trees are planted along these streets, and it is a pleasant and airyplace to walk. Men are chosen whose business it is to watch these dykes and see that the water, which is always trying to break through, never does. It is necessary to be very watchful, for if there comes u break over so small, it must be stopped at once, or it will grow bigger and bigger, and it would take but a few hours to...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. ' I.etter from Boston. BY W. H. KOGEItS. I do not yet hear of a successor for Dr. Thayer at Worcester. Brethren Flower and Darst, of Boston, and Bro. L. F. Bittle, of North Royaltou, Massachusetts, are among those who have supplied the pulpit since the doctor Bro. Darst is preaching to a little company at North Somerville, a suburb of Boston, on Lord's-day afternoons. Our Boston preacher is on the alert to improve every opportunity. In company with Mrs. Darst, he recently spent a few days at Provincetown for a much-needed rest. Both came back much improved after the little outing in the way of boating and fishing and sti oiling on the beach. Bro. W. E. Hall gave New England a call this week, and lectured at South End Tabernacle last Tuesday evening. Perhaps he will preach at Worcester next Lord's-day. It was not convenient to arrange for a lecture at Swampscott. Bro. Flower preached for the writer at Swampscott a few Sundays since, and his sermon built...
