The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter of Travel. BY VV. H. ROGERS. I fear I shall write a heated letter. The mercury is ranging from 90° to 111° in the shade for the last two weeks. We have some stiff prairie breezes, but they are hot breezes. Your brow feels the successive heated undulations. What makes the matter still more aggravating, is that my wife writes ot the delightfully cool weather at the seashore. Under the circumstances the following lauguage is atrociously cruel and exasperating. "There has not been an uncomfortable day since you left, but just one lovely day after another!" Alas! alas! how inconsiderate, how utterly heartless some people are! Sometimes we may Eray to be delivered from our osom friends. Just read the following language from a letter received this morning from the dearest friend on earth: J"We went riding in the morning and visited Daniel Webster's grave and his old house at Marshfield. The house was burned and is reK laced by a nice modern building, u...

2 The Purpose of Our Society. BY W. O. MOORE. [An address before the nnnunl meeting oi the second district of the 0. C. M. 8., held at Delta, 0., August 15-19, 1889.] If we know the purpose of this society, and. that it is sufficient for its purpose, we know its utility. What is the purpose of a watch? Is it sufficient for its purpose? Its purpose is to indicate passing moments. Does it accomplish its purpose? A negative auswer would indicate its failure and worthlessness. Similar questions can be asked with reference to other machines constructed for our good. We have schools aud asylums of different kinds. What is their purpose? Does each accomplish its purpose? If they do their utility is manifest. If the ends sought to be gained by these different institutions can be attained just as well without them, then why have them ? The church is a divine institution. It is divine because Christ fashioned it. Christ built the church in the same sense in which God built the tabernacle. God...

September 5,1889. INortta Carolina Notes. BY J. J. HARPER. LeavingAsheville, I cameonto Black Mountains station, fifteen miles. This is a small village, and I do not see much room for it to grow, unless it grows to the mountains, 'or it seems to be en_ tirely surrounded by them. It is not far from the longest tun nel on this line of railway. I was surprised to learn that on these mountains huckleberries grow in abundance, both blue and blac . A lad told me he picked six gallons in one day. That reminds me of "Sweet Sampson. Sweet potatoes are also produced in considerable quantities among the mountains, and the first 1 saw of the season were in Asheville. , By previous arrangement a conveyance awaited my _ arrival, to take me seven miles into the country, to the home of Bro. J. M. Creaseman, who with his wife are members of the Christian church at Bee Tree, Buncombe county. I also met two other members of that congregation. Their number is small, but they seem to be firm, and occasi...

6 In Two Hemispheres. BY 8. Hayti, for so small a place, seems to experience tnuch trouble. The curse of slavery is not easily wiped out, and the dependence learned under the rule of France and Spain chokes the way for a true manhood. The revolutions which so often occur are held by some to illustrate the inability of the negro to exercise self-government. It is more likely that the sins of the Spanish masters of the island are now bearing their bloody fruit. One would imagine that over eighty years of freedom would have" taught the Haitians something, but evidently their ideals are low, for at the best the example of their late masters was none too elevating. The barbarous slaughter of all captured prisoners by the opposing generals was only a copy of Spanish methods in Central America. Let us hope that a better future awaits the fertile little island, though under the presidency of Hippolyte it seems doubtful. Reports are continually coming across the Pacific of great tragedies in...

It was Sunday evening, and he had been at church, which was an unusual thing lor hiol- - curiosity had been excited bv the fact that a "revival was in progress, and among the converts was a notorious drunkard one to whom he had every day dealt out the "liquid fire" until this wondrous transformation had taken place. Now he saw him no more standing before the bar, but he had this evening listened to his humble fconfession of sin in the church, and had heard him say, "God helping me, I will never again taste the maddening cup. I will be His servant forever and ever." He trembled when he listenedto this confession, and a contempt and loathing came over him when he thought of his vile business, "ruining men, body and soul, forever and ever," he thought. "I'll give it up," was his next resolve. ...

8 ILLINOIS. Wheeler, August 26, '1889.—There were five that took a stand with the brethren at Newton in their new effort to keep house there, on thq 11th instant, and one immersed at Island Creek yesterday. Geo. M. Lollau. * * • Waukegan, August 15,1889.—We are gradually gaining in numbers. Since our organization last January we have doubled our numbers less one. Brother Pratt, of Rock Island, will be with us for three Lord's-days. The brethren there have given him a vacation, and he comes to Waukegan to recuperate; and there is no more healthful place between the Alleghanies and the Rocky mountains for a summer resort. A city of about 6,000 inhabitants, situated on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, with excellent drainage, beautiful shade trees, three artesian wells,eight or ten medicinal springs, three large brick school buildings, very many beautiful residences, and six churches.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. x. letter of Travel. by w. H. ROGERS. You ask a resident of Massachusetts in this year of grace, 1889, if he was born in Massachuvery possibly he may answer: "Yes, sir; I was born here, and so were my forefathers for eight generations back." But you know better than to ask a man much over forty years of age if he was born in Minnesota, for he could not well have been born there if he is a white man of forty-five years. Minnesota was admitted into the union in the year 1858, and now has a population approaching 1,500,000, three-fourths of the number contained in Massachusetts on a much smaller area. Minnesota gains three or four hundred thousand in population every decade.. Her wheat crop the present year bids fair to exceed fifty millions of bushels, and all her crops are good, with the exception of the corn crop, which in certain sections of the State will be poor on account of drought, which prevails especially in Southern Minnesota to an extent that ma...

3 'What Is It to be Evangelical ? BY A. M. WESTON. [Delivered at the Pennsylvania Christian Conference at Granville Centre, Pa.] This word comes from the New Testament Greek. The root of it is translated "gospel" in our versions. So that it means "according to the gospel." Evangelical Christians are those who are in harmony with the gospel; evangelical denominations likewise. There are some who assume this title, diligently and persistently claiming this name, apparently simply as aßhibboleth of party. It has thus become a kind of pass-word, openly spoken indeed, but none the less effective, to exclude from or to admit through the outer and inner doors into the secret chambers of those Elensinian mysteries constitute the purely orthodox fellowship. But no one's claim alone shall be accepted in this paper. Or, rather, we shall not examine any pretensions to be evangelical, seeking only to trace the proper limitations of the subject itself as being profitable to all, leaving applicati...

September 12,1889. Valley of Virginia Motes. BY J. D. HAMAKER. I reached home from the Valley District Convention on Wednesday evening, August 21st. Next morning, in company with Bro. D. H. Rhodes, I started for the Hampshire County, W. Va., Convention. We had the novelty of a once common, but now rare, experience of travel by stage for a distance of twenty miles. Our team was none ol the best, and as we looked upon their bony frames and labored, stiffened movements, we wished that Comstock's influence could make itself felt in old Virginia. Our coach was antiquated, but reasonably comfortable. Our driver claimed to be a preacher, but said he hardly ever "tuck a tex." "He jis open his mouf, and de Laud fill it." We soon found from the fumes of his breath that bad whiskey and tobacco were the most important factors in filling his mouth; but what wonder, since the town of Winchester, by ballot, recently declared that hhe will stand by the saloon. We arrived at Capon Bridge and found m...

6 Letter from Japan. BY G. T. SMITH. Ceremony is of great importance in Japan. In this, as in many other things, they are our antipodes. We value time, to which they are indifferent; while they regard ceremony as of vital necessity, to us it is tiresome, useless, and a waste of time. To neglect it is to offend them. If one wears laced boots it is no small task to take them off before entering the bouse and to put them on when leaving, but it is imperative. He would be a great boor who should walk in upon their straw-mats, with which their floors are always covered, with his shoes on. Having reached a house we do not knock, but call out: "I beg your pardon." Every Japanese house nas an entrance-way where the foot-gear can be left protected from the weather. Tha Japanese step off their sandals with ease ana enter at once. If a servant answers the call she usually lets the guest stand in the entry-way until she calls the master of the house, who fervently urges his visitor to come in. ...

For I have seen the gladdest sight, Way down on Boylston street. And what it means I know foil well; And when I've said my say, Down where I dwell at the Horse Hotel, There will never a horse say "neigh." I know I'm right; and now for the sight On Boylston street I saw— A street-car with a brilliant light, But never a horse to draw. It rolled along, now fast, now slow, Steady and straight on the track; But what made it go, I'm sure I don't knowThere was no horse, front or back. It looked like the other cars in town; Yet there's something strange, 1 feel; To-night I saw, on looking down, The lightning under the wheel. 1 heard things out of the common rule— Strange words I never knew; Yet I'm not a fool; I have been to school To Mister Bartholomew. lam simply a slave; but my freedom is won I The thought thrills through my soul 1 If wit...

No gold I no gold I There are sick in the city: we hear them moan, Soul and body are sad and lone; A Double Healer we pine to give, But the Healer hath need of gold to live; There are lost in the city, the fair young Kirl, The trodden snow and tarnished pearl; There are boys in the city, not like the boys That cheer our hearts with their halfchid noise; For wild and tawny and grim to see, The city "Arabs," alasl they be; We want to gather these lambs that roam, But there needeth gold for the lost ones' Home. No gold I no gold! There are souls that are wandering all around. Who have never heard the gospel sound; In rags and in tatters of divers hue The many shrink fr...

2 How to Secure More Competent Young Men for the Ministry. BY E. B. BAGBY. [Delivered at Christian Workers' Meeting May 80,1889.] When our Lord was here upon the earth He looked up one day and, seeing the multitude, Matthew says "He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted and were scattered abroad as sheep having no shepherd." And He said to His disciples: "The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the harvest that He will send forth laborers into His harvest." If we look around to-day we will see that the multitudes are still scattered as sheep having no shepherd; still the harvest is {)lenteous and the laborers are ew. It is our duty, as it was the duty of the early disciples, to pray to the Lord of the harvest that He will send forth laborers into His vineyard; but we know that prayer without faith will avail nothing, and that faith without works is dead. It is clearly our duty, then, to pray to the Lord of the viney...
