JULY 11,1889. forgotten the promise made to Joseph, and when they left Egypt they carried up his bones, and at length hurried them in Shechem. When Deborah, ilel:ekah's nurse, died, they buried her under an oak, and named the place "Oak of weeping." When the beautiful Rachel died, at the birth of her second son, Benjamin, near Ephrath, they buried her; and Jacob, with affectionate regards for her memory, "set a pillar upon her grave"; the author of Genesis, at the time that book was written, said "that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day." That was the first grave-stone set up of which we have any account. These circumstances" show how deep, and strong and pure were the affections of the patriarchs for their dead, and how careful they were in laying away to rest their mortal remains, and in trying to perpetuate their memory. The Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks and Romans were also exceedingly careful, and I might say lavish, in their attentions to the dead. And what is more...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter from Boston. UY W. H. ItOGEUS. Bro. George T. Smart, who has done a good work at West Pawlet the last eighteen months, began his labors at West Rupert the first of July. He now has a much larger field of usefulness, and the call to West Rupert is a result of his success at West Pawlet, the two places being distant from each other only eight miles. Bro. Smart can still be very useful to the brethren at 'West Pawlet, and he will, for he possesses the fullest confidence of the brethren there who, while they are loth to yield him, still appreciate the force of the reasons for the change. * * Reader, please turn with me to Psalm xxxi, verse 19, and read as follows: Oh, how great is Thy goodness which Thou hast laid up for them that fear Thee, which Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee before sons of men. Our Heavenly Father is infinitely munificent in what He has laid up for us—in what He has wrought out tor us. For whom? For those who tear;...

2 Spoiled by Philosophy. BY UEO. T. SMART. The apostle's injunction to "beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy" ueeds to be reiterated in these days of Matthew Arnold and the American trauscendentalists. Philosophy has become a rage in modern society, and a man or woman without a smattering of sophistry, as a kind of pet intellectualism, is iu danger of beingtaken for a weak-minded person. Esoteric societies are springing up with mushroom growth which give themselves up to discussing the latest literary or religious new thing, such as the Athenians did in Paul's day. The warning was given to the Colossian Church because ot its grave need, for its members were surrounded by the Greek philosophy which may have had some weight with the speculative part of the Church. This warning, nevertheless, is pertinent to us and to our day. The letter was addressed to Christians, and we notice that Paul does not affirm that philosophy does or will spoil a man; but he affirms this iu rega...

July 18, 1889. this very thing, and, therefore,the result of his logic is just simply this: "I would rather be found drunk than to advocate prohibition." Well, it does make a great difference from what standpoint we view things. For my part, 1 would rather be found on the side of the homes than that of the saloon. My Bible teaches me that sin is sin, and that 1 am to shun and denounceit,no matter how it may be clothed in the garments of' respectability. I oppose the liquor traffic because it opposes me. The work Ido it would undo, and had it the power it would banish the gospel from the earth. The reign of King Jesus and of King Alcohol must always be in the reverse ratio. The writer says: "We must judge the tree by its fruits." In this he is corrcct, and it is this judgment that leads to opposition to the rum traffic. What are the fruits of this deadly Upas tree, whose roots have their ramifications all through our laud? Murder, thelt, licentiousness, beggary, suicide, the destruct...

6 Letter From Japan. BY P. B. HALL. The sight of land is a wonderful tonic after a voyage of twenty days. I stood on the deck in the rain and watched 'the dim out-, line of shore like a distant cloud rise higher and higher, gradually assuming shape till the serrated mountains became bristling with trees; watched till the light-house at the entrance to the Tokyo bay flashed its signal, and we were within the limits of the empire of Japan. About ten o'clock the ship anchored in the harbor of Yokohama, but at a great distance from the city. It was pouring rain, the night was dark as pitch, and for safety we waited the coming of day. Early the next morning I awoke and discovered the ship steaming up the harbor to the place of landing. We stopped about a mile from the shore. The water is too shallow to admit a ship nearer. I hastily arranged my toilet and came on deck to get my first view of Yokohama. It was still raining, but soon the clouds became lighter, and the green hills, with ter...

JULY 18, 1889. padre Agostiiio Da Montefeltro, the "Modern Savonarola." BY 1). E. HERVEY. The sensation created in Florence and Rome by the preaching of Fadre Agostino is increasing. During theXent which has lately passed he preached in the large church of San Carlo, on the Corso, to audiences which crowded the building, many hundreds being unable to gain admission. Every day for the forty days of Lent'he preached to from four thousand to five thousand persons, and the influence he wielded over the ordinarily careless Roman people was immense. Four years ago a Franciscan monk made his appearenceinthe pulpit in Bologna, and at his very first sermon tne people hailed him as a new Savonarola. In 1888 Agostino preached a series of sermons in the Cathedral of Florence, and this spring he was summoned to Rome by the command of Leo XIII. himself. Who is he? A Franciscan preaching friar. Who was he? To this second question no such simple answer can be given, for all sorts of romantic storie...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. The Singing: Heart. Thou heart, why dost thou lift thy voice ? The birds are mute; the skies are dark; Nor doth a living thing rejoice; Nor doth a living creature hark; Yet thou art singing in the dark. How small thou art; how poor and frail; Thy prime is past; thy friends arechill; Yet as thou hadV not any ail Throughout the storm there liftest still A praise that winter cannot chill. Then sang that happy heart reply: "God lives; God loves and hears me sing; How warm, how safe, how glad am I, In shelter 'neath His spreading wing, And there I cannot choose but sing." —Independent. Letter from Boston. BY VV. H. KOGERS. Professor Drummond, in addressing the missionaries who were assembled at Northfield in 1887, spoke as follows: "You can take nothing greater to the heathen than the impress and reflection of the love of God upon your own character—nothing. That is the universal language. It will take you years to speak in Chinese or in the dialects of Ind...

2 The Bible-School. 11Y I. A. THAYEIJ. Baron Bunsen tells us, what Tertulliau confirms, that "the apostolic church made the school the connecting link between itself and the world." A glimpse of the zeal and wisdom of the early Christians is gained in this fact from Origen's "Against Celsus." One hundred years after the apostles Celsus charged against Christians that they extended their numbers and views by privately talking with children in their homes and in the schools, and thus inducing them to forsake the religion of their fathers. In Origen's answer he admits this, but justifies it on the ground of the benefits thus bestowed upon them. Philip Schaff says: "It isaremarkable fact that* after the days of the apostles no names of great missionaries are mentioned till the opening of the middle ages; ** * and yet in less than three hundred years from the death of St. John the whole population of the Roman empire, which then represented the civilized world, was nominally Christianize...

I have received help on various passages of Scripture therefrom, and iu return would contribute my quota to the sum total. Last week (July 10th, '89) I entered upon the preparation for a sermon on Luke xvi: 8: "The sons of tbis world are for their own generation wiser than the sons of light." This lead to a study of the parable of the unjust steward. For years it had been to me one of the most difficult spoken by our Lord. I had noted the difficulties only to pass them byj however. Now, I could not do" so. As if borne on by some irresistible power, I must traverse this sea of thought. But how was Ito proceed ? I had by me "Clarks Commentary," also Jamieson's, Faussett's, and Brown's; also "Parables of our Lord," by Treuch; also "Barnes' Notes," ."besides other helps. Helps! did I say? Hinderances I mean.

During Jenny Liud's visit to this country, thirty years ago, a steamboat load of ladies and gentlemen went all the way from Memphis, Little Hock, and ViCksburg to New Orleans to hear her sing. It was nothing for people to go such distances, and even greater, to listen to the great cantatrice. But the intense enthusiasm and overwhelming rush to her concerts generally crowded out the farthest and latest served comers, and this was the case with the party from up the river. When they arrived in New Orleans there was not a seat to be obtained for love or money. There were hundreds of them belonging to the first families of the South, and they went away bitterly disappointed. But, learning that Miss Lind herself would bo a passenger on the boat's return trip to Louisville, they determined to see her if they could not hear her. The master of the boat was Capt.
