September 19,1889. Sittings. BY CHAB. S. LONG. I left the Granville meeting on Saturday morning in order to meet other engagements at Lock Hall, and Flemington, in Clinton county. On my way I stopped over a couple of hours in Williamsport, and enjoyed a pleasant visit with Bro. M. B. Ryan the efficient pastor of the Williamsport congregation. Bro. Ryan, is well and favorably known by the readers of the Missionary as one of its most popular contributors, and he promises to soon resume his articles on the "Study of the Old Testament Scriptures." He reports his work as moving along pleasantly in Williamsport, and an encouraging outlook for the future. The church was seriously crippled by the great flood, but itißnot discouraged, and goes to work with increased zeal and thankfulness that it was no worse. I arrived in Lock Haven in the evening and soon found my way to Bro. O.T. Noble's office, where I met with a most hearty reception from the genial alderman, who not only dispenses law, ...

6 Is it to be Evangelical? BY A. M. WESTON. [Delivered at the Pennsylvania Christian Conference at Granville Centre, Pa.] (Continued from last week.) 11. Thus having set the gospel in its three parts before us, the question only remains, what use must one make of them that he may be said to be evangelical? There are but three uses of the gospel anywhere mentioned, and each of these so important and so essential one to the other that of necessity all of them are required. 1. It is to be believed. 2. To be obeyed. 3. To be preached. To believe without obeying is sin; obeying without belief isnypocrisy. Either of these without preaching is impossible. We shall now consider these in order: 1. To be evangelical one must believe the gospel. This belief must be real. This is all our subject requires. We are not authorized to place as a bar to anyone's good standing as evangelical any views of ourselves or others as to how this faith may have been produced, or any abstractions or distinctio...

September 19, 1889. ®H* family <&ivcti* A Dialogue Between a Father and Son. Father: "Son, what do you think of a distillery at the Spout Spring? Did you ever see a better location?" Sod : "I think if you are serious in the question no time ought to he lost in securing a commission on your sanity. Such a question made public would make thousands regret your not having passed away with your first stroke of paralysis. Think of the thousands upon whom inexpressible anguish would be inflicted that such a thought had ever been entertained by you. For sixty years, in all of the earnestness of your nature, you have arraigned intoxicants as Satan's deadliest agents. I could only preserve my character by attributing such a suggestion from you to mental decadence." Father: "I will utterly abandon the enterprise if you will enable me to understand the difference between manufacturing whiskey and voting for the man or set of men who are doing all they can to shape the des...

Fahmvillk, September 11, 1889.—At my monthly meeting at Lebanon, Martin county, on laßt Saturday and Sunday, two were added to thticongregation from the world by primitive obedience to the gospel.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. In Two Hemispheres. BY S. One of the most interesting facts in connection with the great exodus of Americans to Europe this summer is the trip of a body of workingmen ana women on a tour of observation. Such trips are tokens of progress in international friendliness. The hob-nobbing of crowned heads has not of late filled so much space in the papers as the hobnobbing of hob-nailed shoes. After aU, crowned heads are not worthy of any more consideration than other heads(sometimes not so much), and it is grateful to ono who loves to recognize intrinsic worth to find that position is giving up its seat at the feast to worth. The work of peace congresses is shown in such evolutions. It is a crowning glory of 1889 that a body of civilians draw more attention upon their travels than a similar sized body of military. The time is coming when the man who can strike a skillful blow with the hammer will be honored and recompensed as much as the man who can strike ...

SKPrKMitnit 2(J 1 s <$ I w® sterna* Wilkie Collins, the novelist, is dead. The elections in France were held on Sunday last and the Republicans seem to have been successful. The Republicans are those who favor the present form of government, and the anti-Republicans are those who favor anything opposed to it. It is claimed that Boulanger was elected in the department of the Seine, but was counted out. An effort is being made by the counsel of theAnarchists,Schwab, Fielden, and Neebe, now doing time in the Illinois penitentiary, to obtain a writ of error in their cases. The improved real estate owned by the Astors in New York is estimated to be $350,000,000; this is the largest amount of improved property owned by any one party in the world. Quebec, Canada, was visited by an awful catastrophe Friday last. It appears that one of the streets runs-under the edge of a very high cliff.

6 ®h* family ©tvcU* The Touch of a Flower. One, two, three, four! Mr. Sheppard, the ship-builder, started from his seat at his officetable as the tall clock rang out the hour, closed the books that lay around him and crossed the room to an open window, through which the breeze from the river came up to cool the warm June air. The noise of clinking iron and of workmen's calls floated up to him from the freat shipyards below. His, all is, the piles of steel and copper, the unfinished hulks of many vessels—yes, even the great iron steamer so near completion, from whose sides resounded the blows of hammers. The workmen —a thousand or more —were his also, to work, to toil, to slave in winter's cold and summer's sun that his wealth might grow from great to greater year by year. What matter to him the noise and the heat ? At the shipyard gate his daughter waits in the carrage, and he would join her and roll away swiftly from the tumult and unsightlineh's to the coolness of the green parks....

September 26, 1889. Deceiving: the Enemy. In the spring of 1888 a pair of red foxes took up then home on a Dakota farm. They dug several holes on a knoll in a wheatfleld, and soon after four "kits" or young foxes arrived. Every day, while harrowing and sowing wheat in the field, says the farmer, I saw the two old foxes lying on the little mound in front of their home. The kits rolled about in the sun, played with the bushy tails of their parents, and enjoyed themselves apparently as much as a group of kittens. One morning a neighbor came to work in a field adjoining, bringing with him a dog, and the dog, with all the curiosity of his kind, soon began the investigation of both farms. He was still a long distance from the fox-den when I heard a sharp, warning bark, and saw the kits disappear. As I looked the mother-fox lay on the mound, her ears erect, her nose on the ground, all attention. The father of the family, with his tail swinging in the wind, trotted toward the dog. Can he in...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. In Two Hemispheres. BY S. One of the most heroic of moderns was Garibaldi. Most romantic was his life. True romance does not alone consist of striking adventures or even of great accomplishments alone,but only when joined to an honest aim and a noble purpose. Garibaldi had an honest purpose, a noble aim, a persistent endeavor, and consequently be made a grand achievement. The unification of Italy was a task fit for Hercules in the strength and endeavor required, and in its unpleasantness was equal to the stable-cleaning exploit of the ancient hero. Garibaldi was a great man, and so attempted great things. He probably knew the greatness of the task. A smaller man would have attempted the same because he thought them easy. The Italian was, moreover, a patriot, tyMfefchere is a difference in the reiluts of the work of greatness and patriotism. His greatness an J genius unified Italy; his patriotism refused emolument of rank or riches for his work. It woul...

Frequently he staggers along on bis short, stubby legs under a load which is twice his size and weight, and when Jrou see him thus loaded and beabored by his Mexican owner, which he never in any way appears to notice except by an occasional quick jerk of his tail, he calls forth your admiration and your sympathy at once, for never was there a more humble, self-sacrificing,faithful little brute to man upon earth among God's creatures than this little abused animal. Whole droves of them can be seen driven along the streets loaded with every manner of merchandise. TbeUnited States military poet at San...

So our beloved slumbers till tbey'recalled As fair, sweet flowers to bloom again. Why speak of them as dead ?

October 3, 1889. The Things that God Uses. IJY D. L. MOODY. In I Cor. i: 27, 28, we read of five thingsthat God hath chosen: "Bat God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen; yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are." 1 believe there are a great many Christian people all over Christendom who are crying out for work; they say they want to be used of God. I do not think I have ever seen such blessed times as during the past six months. Everywhere I have found that there is a longing to engage in Christian work. Yet there are few people who seem really willing to launch out into the deep; they think they have not got the requisite ability. Now, I am quite sure we are looking at this matter in a wrong tight. We forget that God uses the weak, the foolish, the base, and the ...

8 CEORCIA. Griffin, September 24, 1889.—8r0. J. A. Perdue, of Sandersville, Ga., began a series of sermons on Monday evening after the first Lord's-day jn this month, and preached three weeks. Bro. Perdue iB one of the finest logicians in the State. By his thorough knowledge of the Scriptures and logical way of expounding the gospel he has done much good here, not only to the church, but to the community at large. Our audiences at all times were large, and sometimes the house could not hold half the people. Such a thing I never saw before. We had nine additions during this series of meetings. Bro. F. L. Adams, our beloved pastor, has done a good work here this year, considering the circumstances under which he began. We hope to keep Bro. Adams another year and to have his undivided time, for the church loves him devotedly. J.L.Patrick. ILLINOIS.
