The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. I.etter from Boston. HY W. H. ROGERS. Regeneration Versus Legislation. It is one thing to get a man's life about right in the sight of men by an outward compulsion —that is legislation. It is quite another thing to get a man's We just rightwn the sight of God —that is regeneration. Legislation alone can never bring about a reformation or greatly advance civilization. It can do this only as it proceeds upon the ground-work of some previous regeneration. Legislation was never enforced in any community which had never felt in any degree the power of regeneration. The missionary must go and effect a regeneration before the statesman can make any headway in legislation. Legislation may secure right conduct for the time being. Only regeneration can secure right character for time and for eternity. Respectable citizenship for this world may be secured by legislation. Acceptable citizenship for the next world can be secured only by regeneration. The Old Testam...

2 Letter from Turkey. Dear Missionary,—Bro. Kevorkian, my dear fellow-laborer, is yet alive, and after I have learned and seen with my own eyes the mountain top, the almost perpendicular precipice, and the river over one hundred feet deep, where a terrible accident had happened to him while going from Tocat to Herek, which is some fourteen hours' drive over one of the roughest and most mountainous and badly constructed roads of Asia Minor, I am filled with wonder and my heart is overflowing with gratitude to God. The horses of the wagon in which Bro. Kevorkian was travelling, on their descent from the mountain, at one of the sharp turns of the road had leaped over the precipice, carrying with them everything behind them, and had thrown Bro. Kevorkian, with the upper framework of the wagon, clear down to the bottom of the river, where he laid senseless and bleeding profusely from several lacerated wounds received on his head. Fortunately a kind-hearted, philanthropic Greek officer," ...

PLACE.—Ramah, Samuel's home, four miles northwest of Jerusalem. SUBJECT.—Entering Upon the Kingdom. INTRODUCTORY.—Though the demand of the elders for a king was displeasing to Samuel, because he saw in it an unwillingness "to have God to reign over them, still after praying to God for guidance, and being assured in answer to his prayer that the demand was sanctioned by God as the best for them under the circumstances, he waived all further opposition and led the new movement with calm wisdom to a sue cessful issue. The all-important choice fell upon Saul, of the tribe of Benjamin, in whom the qualities demanded seem...

6 My Position. Friends and Brethren, — Regarding the note which ealled up my position in the recent contest on the licensing of the liquor traffic in West Point, J will say, first, concerning the points presented in that note, that Bro. Spencer's statement—that "we hear that Bro. C. L. Morrison used his influence against prohibition"—shows that he had been misinformed, either through malice or because the informant did not himself understand my position nor the real issue in the West Point contest. The writer has always been a Erohibitionist in principle, and egan lecturing on temperance when a mere boy (16 years of a°e), and iu every community in which he has ever lived his record will be found to be that of an earnest temperance worker, no matter whether he stood with a majority or minority. Furthermore, one year ago, when we first arrived in West Point, we took a stand against license, and it has never been denied that the action of the writer in publishing in the Star the list o...

The young man who smokes or drinks is seemingly not satisfied unless he can induce his companion to do likewise; and so it follows that not only does a man drink or smoke two or three times more than he would if alone, but many persons who lack the moral ...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. On Growing: Old. They call it "going down the hill" when we are growing old, And speak with mournful accents when our tale is nearly told; They sigh when talking of the past, the days that used to be, As if the future were not bright with immortality. ]iut oh, it is not going down —'tis climbing higher and higher, Until we almost see the mountains that our souls desire; For if the natural eye grows dim, it is but dim to earth, While the eye of faith grows keener to perceive the Savior's worth. Those by-gone days, though days of joy, we wish not back again; Were there not also many days of sorrow and of pain? But in the days awaiting us, the days beyond the tomb, Sorrow shall find 110 place, but joy unmarred forever bloom. Who would exchange for shooting blade the waving, golden grain? Or when the corn is fully ripe, would wish it green again ? And who would wish the hoary head, found in the way of truth, To be again encircled with the sunny locks of yo...

2 Young; Men and Women. "WHO AliE NEEDED?" , Rev. John Brandt, of the Christian church, preached Sunday night to a crowded house. His text was: "The glory of young men in their strength."' He Btated that some of the great questions of to-day which are agitating the press, the State, and Church are the purification of the ballot-box, the more equal distribution of wealth, the of immigration, the leSeningof crime, the controlling or disbanding of the great trusts and monopolies, the uprooting of anarchism, the enforcingof laws, and the saloon question. These are some of the great issues of to-day. These are some of the great questions which are being discussed in forum, in field, in the press, and in the pulpit. Most, if not all, of the issues, will be handed down to the coming young men and women for them to discuss, adjust, and settle. In order to meet these great issues and wisely settle them, certain heroic traits of character are needed. For this great work young men aiid women a...

The time soon came for his public manifestation to Isratl. Samuel convened the people at Mizpeh to sanction publicly that which had been done by him p...

"Jesus, Lover of My Soul," wassung by the quartette, and then Dr. Pendleton delivered a short funeral address that was a series of beaut ifully worded tributes to President Woolery's worth as a man, as an educator, a husband, and a father, and a thinker. The departed could well have said: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith."

6 Vacation Notes. BY M. B. IIYAN. '•To the lover of nature's rugged beauty, Somerset couuty, Pennsylvania, presents superior attractions. The Alleghenies, that shake their eastern dews into the Atlantic and pour their western waters into the Gulf of Mexico, rise to the average height of 2,800 feet in the eastern borders of this county, while its western edge is borne aloft to a similar altitude on the back of the Laurel Hills." Such are the introductory sentences of a pen-pictui e by which a recent writer acquaints the outside world with one of the most interesting, romantic, and healthful {ortions of the Keystone State. t is the writer's privilege to be spending a few midsummer days among the hills and valleys of this mountain resort, and to mingle with its people, many of them the acquaintances and friends of other days, when, as a beginner, he ministered in things spiritual to congregations in different parts of the county. This is a "restful" place, where the pure mountain air, ...

"I don't see why I am in need of making a profession. As the hymn says, I can let my life show forth His praise." "But, dear, the question is not whether you can be what you say. a humble, hearty Christian, outside the pale of the visible church, but whether you have anv right to choose for yourself in a matter where the Lord has left you His orders. His words are very plain: 'Whosoever confesseth Me before men, him will I confess before My Father.' 'Whosoever is ashamed of Me before men, of him will 1 be ashamed before My Father.' I do not see that you have a choice, ciG£ir " "I don't think I am ashamed, Miss Mary."

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter from Boston. UY W. H. ROGERS. The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals recently offered a hundreddollar prize for the best essay on "Human Education." Ralph YV. Trine, of Knox College, Galesburg, Illinois, wrot6 the essay which won the prize. The essay is being generally published as containing only correct statements, and I therefore quote the statistics of crime as given by Mr. Trine. They are as follows : Notwithstanding the common belief that the character of the human race is generally improving, it is unquestionably true that crime during the last few years has assumed alarming proportions, and this is especially true of the grosser forms of crime. Recent statistics show that in England out of every 10,000 deaths 7 were the result of violence; in Ireland and France the proportion is over 8 to 10,000, while in the United States the ratio at present is 21 to 10,000—a proportion greater and more alarming than that of...

2 Tlie Leaven and Meal. (LI ke xiu: 20, 21.) * BY J. L. MCDONALD. I have become deeply interested in the parables of our Lord since taking up th'at of the unjust steward, and because of the great lessons they teach will preach on various of them until my interest lags. I feel that now is the time for me to speak. So I will take up the parable of the leaven and consider its use. This parable, like that of the unjust steward, has been much abused by commentators. Because the Israelites under the law were forbidden to use leaven in their feasts, and Jesus spoke of the vain teachings of the Pharisees as leaven, sqme have concluded that whenever the term is used it refers to vanity, decay, or evil in some other form. To harmonize this parable of our Lord with their preconceived opinions on the subject they have likened the meal to the kingdom of God, the leaven to the corrupt teachings and practices of tne great apostacy, and the woman to its instructors. While this may seem plausible to...

Saul's first step was to prepare to resist the Philistines by enrolling 3,000 men, the nucleus of a sta...
