January 17,1880. Cbristmaa Reflection*. James Vernon, Jr., having been asked by the Baltimore American for some Christmas reflections sent the following, which we clip and give to our readers: "From Joseph us we learn that Herod the Great died thirtyseven years alter he had been made kintj by the Romans. This event took place A. U. C. 714, which would make the date of his death A. U. C. 751. Now, we know that he was alive when -Jesus was born, and that he was dead before the family of Jesus returned from Egypt. Joseph us also says that on the night of March 12—that is, B. C. 4 of our era—there was an eclipse of the jnoon, and during the eclipse Herod burned some rabbis who had offended him, and adds that before the next Passover came Herod was dead. The Evangelist Luke says that when Jesus was thirty years of age Tiberius had been reigning fifteen years. The reign of Tiberius is dated from his association with Augustus in the empire, A. U. C. 765. Add to this date the fifteen years ...

6 "New Methods Needed." BY I. A. THAYER. Under the above caption the religious editor of the New York Tribune, among other things, says: "That the churches as at present organized fail to reach the large number of people is a self-evident truth. And that there are large numbers of immigrants in this and every city, for whom the churches-do nothing, and for whom, perhaps, they can do nothing under the circumstances, is also a self-evident truth. What is needed is some sort of a practical co-operation on the part of the churches looking to more efficient work. I know, and am glad to admit, that all the churches are doing what they can under the present methods. But the methods themselves are at fault. * * Let the churches of New York get out of the denominational ruts in which they run and make an effort simply to civilize and Christianize the pagans among us if they wish to succeed." With the same mail comes the New York Times and Sun andthe Philadelphia Times, all speaking in a simi...

January 17,1889. My Boy Still. on think I've forgotten the day arried him at my breast? y fair children I've loved since then, But I think that I loved him best. For he wa« our first-born child, John, And I have not the heart or will To love him less; whatever may come He's my boy still! I remember when he was a little lad, How he used to climb on my knee; How proud we were of his beauty, Of his wit and his mimicry. And I know quite well he's a man now, With a wild and stubborn will: But whatever he is to you, John, He's my boy still! He was just like sunshine about the house, In the days of his happy youth; Vou know we said that with all his faults He had courage and love and truth; And though he has wandered far away, I'd rather you'd say 110 ill; He is sure to come back to his mother; He's my boy still! I know there was never a kinder heart, And I can remember to-day How often he went with me apart And knelt at my knee to pray. And the man will do as the boy did, Sooner or later ...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. HY "NEIL MCLEOD. The following "Notes" given by Bro. J. W. McGarvey at a meeting of the Students' • Missionary Society at Lexington, were furnished to the Ontario Evangelist by Bro. Percival Baker, and are worth repeating. They are good reading, and wholesome doctrine, and should be very full of comfort to those who have been very much afraid they would do a great wickedness, and sin against God, _ by co-operating to send missionaries, with the gospel, into all the world. I will only add that if we way do these things, then we must. If a thing is right in such a cause, it is not merely optional, it is obligatory. Yea, woe is me if 1 preach not the gospel. And if I can't go and do it myself, I must send somebody else that can. If I can't send one by myself, I must get some others to help me do it. It must be flone. 0, if this conviction should seize all hearts, there would be an end of all this covil and cant about Missionary Societies. Some seem very j...

2 DIFFERENT WAYS OF DWELLING. lIY JOSEPH PARKEK, MINISTER OF THE fY TEMPLE, I.QNHON. ,'j i... . :;p. . . . Dwell without care. .. D/, #ilalone."—Jer. xlix: 30-31. I wish ti> be distinctly understood that tfceee words are about to be treated strictly by way of accommodation, not of critical exposition. They may enable ub to say something about methods of 'life, and help us to conduct a process of wise self-examination. They divide the «übject so clearly that no attempt need <be made to secure a better arrangement. Let us regard the several divisions rather as exhortations than descriptions—we are thus exhorted to "dwell deep," "dwell without care" and "dwell alone." "Dwelldeep:" have great principles at "the very base of your character; have root in yourselves; see that you are not mere waifs and strays, the sport of every wind, but that you have laid hold of the Wry substance of life so firmly that not •Ten storms may be able to shatter or destroy your being.

At the wame time lie enjoyed his presents hugely, and wanted pretty or funny possessions; only, he wished they would walk into the room earl.y in the morning while everybody was asleep but himself,"and all of their own accord. It would be so nice if a printingpress would roll into his chamber at six o'clock a. m., and say, "Excuse me if 1 come at an untimely hour, my dear Will; but I made up my mind to leave the shop to-day, and belong to you. It is a proverb of mine, 'Never too early to do what you want to!'" But Will was shrewd enough to be quite sure that no such queer and charming morning would ever dawn as thi...

6_ The Test of Ottr Love. BY O. A. ('AHit. ("He that hath my comiiibndmejits and keeps them, he it is that loves me," said Jesus. John xiv: 21.) Does our love need to be tested ? What for? Is it to find out whether it exists or not? Doesn't(3od know whether the loyalty is in us? Yes, but the Bible does not speak of God's knowing what is not; but of his knowing what is, and he tests what is in us, and tries us not to discover anything, but to develop what is. The Lord said: "I know Abraham that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him." The Lord tried Abraham, and he knew whom he was trying —knew what was in him. I suppose the Lord does not try nothing. He tries something and for a purpose. The trials of the Lord accomplish good. The trial of your faith works patience. The Lord knows whether we are loyal to him, and because we are ...

January 24, 1889. Waiting for the Bible. f Residents of Christian lands 'who have the Bible asacomplete book can hardly realize the condition of less favored countries where only detached parts of Scripture have found their way into the hands of the people. Since the days of Wycliff the English-speaking race has had in its own tongue every word or the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. This for five hundred years has been the heritage of every generation. In hall and cottage, in cloister and in church, there has been equal access to every part of the inspired word. But in the work of evangelizing the world the book has been dealt out to men generally in detached parts, ■"at sundry times and in divers manners." We pointy to a long list of languages, which during this century have been enriched bv the transaction of some parts ot the Bible, and we think it cause for gratulation that the story of redemption has been told in so many tongues. But ought we not also to commiserate those who...

8 Valley Notes. WITH GENERAL NOTES THROWN IN. Our meeting at Dayton continued ten days with good audiences all the time. Two were added by letter. After a few sermons to the world I addressed myself to the church. I feel more and more the truth that Christian living is indispensable to success in preaching the gospel. The chief benefit of the meeting was in a general straightening up within and in the election of Bro. Levi Rhodes to the eldership. We feel sure of his efficiency. He is a good man and loves the cause of Christ. Brethren Hutson and Manger, whom we elected deacons, are proving themselves worthy the trust. "They are purchasing to themselves a good degree." Much to their regret, the state of Bro. E. L. Hester's health made it necessary for him to leave them. He had won for himself a place in their confidence. I was glad of the opportunity to visit Lacy Springs again. I was pleasantly entertained at Mr. Charles Brock's and at Mr. C. White's. I found our trio of sisters sti...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. HV NEIE MCLEOD. Medical Missions.—The work of the skillful physician hascome to be regarded as most helpful, if not indispensable, in missions to the heathen. Every mission should have a physician among its forces. What a field for the highest and noblest Christian service, for God aud men, is open here to the hundreds of our Christian men in the medical profession ! All our missions should be speedily re-enforced from their ranks. With their profession of medicine, and their profession of faith, they can heal the diseased body and the sin-sick soul. They can have access to many that none other can reach. In an article on this subject in the Sunday School Times, Prof. George E. Post, M. D., of Beinit, Syria, gives some valuable thoughts from which 1 make a few extracts. He says: "It is the purpose of this article to give a few illustrations from the life Of the writer, to show how medical knowledge and service give an introduction to personal influence...

2 The Shepherd's Vision. BY LYMAN WHITNEY ALLEN. • "Stars shown over the far J.udean plains with a clear, sweet light; "Wind blew nnder the stars a ptean out from the verge of night. Shepherds lay on the up-land meadows, watching their drowsy sheep. "While the moon, with its shade covered the town asleep. On a sudden a swift light, streaming, spread o'er the Eastern sky— Stood a vision of splendor, beaming, winged, and white, and high. All affrighted, the watchers, starting, turned them about to flee, But the lips of the angel,, parting, uttered in sweetest key: Lo! I bring to you tidings glorious; hearken ye unto them; Sent from Heaven, the Christ victorious slumbers in Be'hlehem. This shall be for a sign decrying, wrapped in his swaddling fleece; Ye shall find, in a manger lying, Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Sweep on sweep of white crests and pinions shone in the starry sky; Angels crowded the night's dominions that the fair night did die. Whiter, whiter with widening splendor shoo...

The early part of the day was spent in a house in Capernaum in discourses to the Pharisees who were trying to entrap him. in defending himself against the charge of blasphemy and in healing one possessed of a devil, blind and dumb. While thus talking to the people he was informed by one that his mother and his brethren stood without wishing to speak to him, and in reply taught the lesson, "That whosoever shall do the will of m 7 Father, the same is ...

January 81,1889. 1 The Bible must be its own inIberpreter, and it must be interloreted in harmony with itself. Tesus could not so contradict 'himself as to teach us to pray 4 'Lead us not into temptation, aud then tempt us himself by authorizing the use of thatwhieh will arouse the latent fires of an awful appetite. Consistency was one of the sublimest elements in our Savior's life. Again, the Bible cannot prohibit the use of intoxicating wine and sanction it at the some time. Both the logic of the head and the logic of the heart are alike opposed to the use of strong drink. It is terrible in a saloon; it is doubly, yea, trebly, so in the Lord's house. I would none of it. Why not provide the sweet juice of the grape? Grapes are everywhere in superabundance. The juice is easily prepared and as easily preserved. It is cheap and much more economical than strong drink. It is pleasant to the taste and harmless as sweetmilk. There is nothing in it to create or arouse an unnatural or vitia...

Hark to the organ! roll upon roll The waves of its music go over her soul! Silk rustles past her, Faster and faster— The great bell ceases its toll. Fain would she enter, but not for the poor Swingeth wide open the bronze church door. Only a woman, wailing alone, Icy cold on an icily cold stone, What do they care for her?

January 31, 1889. Do Ttaou Thy Will. BY ELLA WHEELER WILCOX. Do Thou thy will with me! I am convinced that thy mysterious ways Lead ever up to goals of peace. I see In looking back o'er discontented days When I rebelled atjiaths Thou led'st me in—see how for my good it all has been. Do Thou thy will. Do Thou thy will. I And That when 1 wept because some barrier stood Between me and my longings, 1 was blind; For Thou hadst placed it there for my own good; And when in chosen paths I could not go, It was to guard me from some needless woe. Do Thou thy will. Do Thou thy will. I feel The calm of realms toward which my feet are led I Across my fevered, restless spirit steal. The blind rebellion of my heart is dead. Or in the valley or on the heights above The hand that leads me is the hand of Love. Do Thou thy will. God has strange wrappers for His promises. He lays up his goodness sometimes in strange places. There is one promise of His presence and companionship which lies in the very d...

8 Dots From tlfe Southwest. The union week of prayer of all the churches was largely attended. January Bth we met at our church; subject given me was: "The Bapf'sm of the Holy •Spirit." When the hour had arrived for the meeting the house was well filled, and I learn several were turned away for want of room. From some cause none of the ministers of our city churches were present; but I am glad to say their flocks were well represented. 1 knew the current opinion was, we denied the "personality" of the Holy Spirit, and, believing then was my best time to correct the opinion and set them straight on the subject, I took advantage of the opportunity and began to speak as the Bible speaks, and tried as best I could to set forth our position on the subject. Bro. .L R. Miller followed me with a plain and practical speech on the "The Fruits of the Spirit." January 11th we met at the Episcopal church. The subject was "Missions." The Baptist minister tried to show forth the importance of this...
