August 15,1889. Sifting*. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. Senator Ingalls, of Kansas, is a close observer and a man of wide experience. He is, after the strictest of his sect, a Republican and loyal to the principles of his party, and he has never been suspected with having any leanings in the direction ot prohibition. Recently, however, a change has come oyer the spirit of his vision, and in the August number of the Forum he voices sentiments which do honor to his judgment. Hitherto he has been an outspoken enemy of prohibition; but, seeing its practical workings in his own State in decreasing crime, emptying jails, lessening the consumption of intoxicating drinks ninety-nine per cent., and in giving a Queening impulse to all honorable business, he now endorses prohibition as the wisest method of dealing with the liquor question. The Globe-Democrat calls the Senator's change of views a "flop over," and expresses surprise that it should occur at this time when prohibition has reached its "lowest ...

6 The West Point Contest. Editor Missionary, —As one of those who, in the recent localoption election in this town, "took the opposite side from Bro. Morrison and the Star," I ask space to "have something to say" in response to the article appearing in your issue of the Ist instant, signed C. L. Morrison, in which the writer undertakes to explain his course during the contest referred to. In what 1 shall say I shall endeavor to be guided by your admonition : "Only let the discussion be calm, brief, and as becometh Christians." Allow me to say in the outset two things—1. If this were a matter that affected Mr. Morrison alone, I should not have a word to say. I have no disposition to antagonize him, to do him any possible injury, or to dissipate any satisfaction that his explanation afforded him or your readers. I only refer to the matter because his explanation seems to me to involve injuriously the reputation of the citizens of this town and their officials. 2. I must confess my sur...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Love Is Light. HV K G. CHEVBRTON. •'At eventide it Blin.ll be light. My little gill, so brave by dav, Grows timid as the shadows fall, I cannot charm her fears away: My reasous have no force at all. She pleads, with all her childish might, That she may have a light. I calm her fears and stroke her hair; I tell her of the angels near,— Of God, whose love is everywhere, And Christ, to whom each child is dear. She hears, but only clasps me tight, And begs me for a light. But when I say it cannot be, And strive to make her understand Just why, she makes another plea, That 1 will stay and hold her hand. She whispers, as we kiss good-night, "That's better than a light." And thus, content, she falls asleep; My clasp grows closer on her hand; Musing: God doth His wisdom keep In childish lips. I understand, That, in that other, darker night, 'Tis love that makeß it light. I, too, have shrunk in childish dread From that dumb darkness that doth creep And thicken ...

2 The Cardinal Issue. "Thou art the Christ, the Son. the living (iod; upon this rock I will build M.v church.,' (Matt, xvi: l.'t-IS } If some Apollyon could blot from the earth ail that has been said and.doue concerning Christ it would leave a measureless chasm; libraiies, masterpieces of art, institutions of learning aud charity would sink; moral principles at the heart of our best civilization would be quenched; anthems and oratorios would be • hushed, aud the yearnings of the soul for something better to come would be felt as the pangs of despair. He stands in a higher sense than any other —the central figure of history—and challenges the ages with a question as original and wonderful as His own character and mission: "Who am I?" Who of all "the greater and lesser lights" of history ever asked such a question ? Men tell us that the laws of nature and of mind are fixed and uniform, with no supernatural or variable element. Why, then, did not these uniform laws suggest to some sage...

August 22, 188!). I>li e September Collection f or Foreign Missions. The success of this collection if.il depend upon the interest and enthusiasm manifested by the preachers aud elders. I' rom 'the nature of the case, it ought to be by far the largest in the history of our work. There was never a time when we were able to give so much ; there never was a time when the need was so great as it is now. The forces in the field are greater than ever before. A great and gi owing work requires a great and growing incoue. . We parted out to raise f 100,000 this year. The Springfield Convention regarded this as the least sum that ought to be asked or expected from so great a brotherhood for a cause so worthy. We are well able to raise a quarter of a million dollars for this work. If every church and every Disciple would put forth a tithe of their strength this amount would be raised with perfect ease. As it is, ten-twelfths of the year are gone and we have, not raised .f50,000. We...

6 Pay Your Debts. BY A y B. WILLIAMS. Paul 3ays he is a "debtor both to the Greeks and the barbarians," and that he proposes to conscientiously discharge his debt. Every honest man will make an effort to pay his honest debts. A child that excused himself for all his shortcomings by saying "I forgot," was asked why his memory was so treacherous. He said it was because he had such a "large forgettery." The memory of many persons concerning their small debts is' very untrustworthy. It is so treacherous that they can't remember a grocer's bill, but at the same time never forget when any one owes them. The grocers in most of our large cities have found it necessary to organize an "Exchange" for the purpose of aiding the memory of their customers who have been troubled with "large forgetteries." Lawyers have been found upon their list who could remember every item that would be of any service to their clients, and yet could not remember a small debt. Politicians who could remember anythin...

Tommy had been to theschool treat, away out from the dirty, crowded, hot streets in which he lived, into the beautiful, green, fresh country. And Tommy had enjoyed the treat; but I am afraid that many of the butterflies and other insects, and some of the birds, too, had cause to grieve that Tommy and his mates had been there to a treat—it was none for them.

On Saturdav morning, August 10th, I arrived in that very heav-enward-looking city —Chicago where block after block towers skyward nine, ten, eleven, twelve stories high, so that Boston appears in comparison a provincial town. A short visit with Bro. W. F.

2 Baltimore Letter. IJY JAMES VEKNON. Dear Missionary,—As your readers will remember, I left here May 10th for Canada. I was called there by the illness of my father, which terminated fatally May 22d. It has occurred to me that eome incidents connected with my journey might interest your readers. At Suspension Bridge, New York, 1 was compelled to stop for the night, aud I staid at the Niagara House. That was the first house which sheltered me in the United States. How well I remembered how, that seventeen years before, dustcovered, friendless, aud with only a Canadian penny and a cent in my pocket, 1 had'walked in at the same door. I had the scarlet fever near Hamilton in the spring of that year. When I got out of bed Iliad just two suits of clothes left and a violin. I sold the violin for two dollars, and, crowding one suit into a cheap carpet bag, started on foot aud alone for the United States. I tried to get work at my trade everywhere as 1 came along, but without success. In Sa...

The services were held in the basement, which has been cleaned and refitted sumciently well so they can meet in it with comfort for the present. I found the workmen had been jusily at work in the audience•oorn. The ceiling and walls were nearly completed, and are coing to be very neat and tasty when completed. Some men I were at work scraping and cleaning the seats preparatory to oiling and varnishing them and having thein ready for use in the near future. Our brethren at Johnstown are deeply grateful for what has been done for them, and seem to be desirous of doingall they can to advance the Master's kingdom in their midst. The foundations of society are broken up by the disaster, and the hearts of the people ...

6 In Two Hemispheres. BY S. Probably the i»ost striking character iu nineteenth-ceutury politics is Mr. Gladstone. The "Grand Old Man," as his followers affectionately call him, has just celebrated his golden wpdding. Amidst the cares and corruptions of politics, his public life has been without stain, and better si ill, his private life has been all of a piece with his public one. Only a pure domestic character could have produced so pure a public character. It is rare indeed to find a life so rounded and complete as that of Mr. Gladstone —fifty years of domestic experience and happiness, and fifty-six years of public care and triumph. A few points in his life are worth noting: In 1831 he left Oxford University, taking a double first-class degree; in 1832 he entered the House of Commons; in 1835 he held his first office; 1838 he publishes his first work on "The State in its Relations with the Church." From this time till 1850 he figures in the politics of thetime; in 1850, after a ...
