The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. In Two Hemispheres. HY 8. Wherein consists the fascination of rank for American women it is hard to tell; but chronicles are continually telling the itching ears of a susceptible public that some rich American woman is to marry a poor European prince. The linking of democracy with aristocracy is generally unfortunate. It is an image, part iron and part clay. There is no real bond of union in such marriages, and tho ideal life is found to be only a very base real. Recently one of these petty princelings was taught a valuable lesson in the shape of a refusal of his prospective father-in-law to liquidate his debts. This refusal will probably break the engagement, and in thatcase the lady will be fortunate. After all, is it a lady who can marry a dissipated, impecunious gambler because of his so called rank ? Incompatibility of station i 3 almost as fruitful a source of matrimonial unhappiness as lncomfmtibility of temper. The lifeong relationship is needf...

2 Paragraphs from the Pew. Dear Pulpit,—You will please give us credit for clemency during the heated terqi in not harassing your patience by wise remarks. The Pew has been busy, nevertheless, if its pen has been idle. We trust that you have enjoyed a much needed rest and are fresh for the work of another year. It is often asked: "Why take a vacation? The devil never does." How does any one know that? He may be resting half of his time. The inference is drawn from the fact that his infernal work continually goes on, but we forget that it is easier to go down hill than up. It is only necessary for him to give the load an occasional push, and it is carried downward by the force of moral graviry, gathering momentum as it proce ds, while it needs continual tugging to get our load upward and onward towards the celestial city. We are inclined to the opinion that any enterprise, good or bad, will be most successfully managed if the proprietor takes an occasional rest, and thereby husbands....

October 10,1889. Christian Hymns, by the Gospel Advocate Publishing Company, is a new candidate for popular favor. The book contains 276 hymns. Its selections are very good. Care has been taken to winnow the chaff from the wheat. Many of the pieces are new. It contains some of the sweetest new melodies gathered from ev ry source. Prices in cloth, with music, 00 cents; in board, 50cents; without music, 25 cents and 20 cents a copy. This paragraph was written at Reidsville, N. C., when the writer was en route to Atlantu to attend the Georgia Disciples' State Convention. A gentleman remarked that Reidsville now has 12,000 inhabitants, although at the close of the war there were not more than three houses in the neighborhood. We do not know as to the accuracy of his statement, but judge that the town has had a rapid growth, due chiefly to its tobacco market. The writer noticed a large cotton mill which was being built. For three years successively the writer has gone to Georgia to atten...

6 In Slemorlatn. HY A. S. We lo -ked at our darling all silent and white, And our hearts in that sorrow bled at the flight; For the sweet, gentle spirit we all loved so well Had gone troin our presence forever to dwell. We had prayed for her safety, that the gentlest care Should shield cur darling so pure and . fair. And the prayer had been answered. All safe to-night She walks in the presenceof Jesus in light. The dear little body will never be bent By the weight of years ere life is spent; The fair dimpled hands will not grow old In lifting the weight of sorrows untold. And the tender feet will never be torn By the sandals of life too rough to be worn. The wind was tempered. She was taken away From this temporal night to eternal day. The port has been entered. All safe at last, She is shielded now from each cruel blast; With the sandals of holinessherfeethave been shod, Her pure spirit ushered into the presence of God. Principles of Christian Giving.

October 10, 1889. QCHe family Circle* Satan's Chain. In the little poem below wo find in verse the warning which cannot too often be given to the .voting in regard to the power of habit. It is so easy to form a bad habit, so hard to break it when formed. And there are boys and girls who are letting Satan weave some new chain about them every day, and who are saying and thinking, "I can break it any hour." The only safe way is to break it now: "Satan threw his garland gayly O'er a maiden in seeming play; Sage experience whispers daily, 'Break the chain while yet you may.' 'Why,' she cried, 'it's but the toy, Formed of many a fragrant flower; Let me still its bloom enjoy, I can break it any hour.' "Long she sported, freely, lightly. In the bright and glowing chain; '01 it clasps my heart too tightly! I must break the toy in twain.' Vain resolve, the tie that bound her Tightened 'neath her struggling will; Fast the blossoms fell around her, But the fetter lingered still." Here am I; Se...

8 llotce fvout tJje OHIO. Urbana.—ln my last I was speaking of this district an a whole. Some of the churches are very old ones. Belle Centre, Logan county, nearly two years ago, celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its organization. This is now a good strong church of faithful men and women. Q. A. Randall hoe labored there for more than a dozen years, and is still held in high esteem by not only the church, but also by the citizens. West Middleburg is an old congregation, but owing to the fact that a few brethren who seem to have undue control take a stand against the congregations assisting in missionary work and oppose the use of the organ, so that this congregation has gained nothing for a few years, and does nut to-day exert the influence that it should. There aregood, live congregations at West Mansfield, East Liberty, Rushsylvania, and Bellefontaine. At Urbana a small band of Disciples met and a church was organized about eight years ago.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. In Two Hemispheres. UY G. T. SMART. We have heard much lately concerning the dead line in the ministry. Such line as a collective possession is a myth. There is no more a dead line in the ministry than in the manufactures. Individually there is, and must be, such a line as in all professions and trades, and each individual stands or falls on his own merit. There are young men in years who are already dyiug, and there are old men in years who seem to be just i eginning their most brilliant work. At the Episcopal Convention, held in New York, October 7th, two fathers in Israel, respectively aged eighty-three and eighty-five, were presented to the assembly, and they made short speeches. They are still at work as missionaries among the miners of the Rocky mountains. The only dead line in such cases is death. While a man has bodily health to work and mental power to learn, combined with will power to us , he need not fear the dead line, for work will accomp...

2 Letter from Japan. BY P. B. HALL. Those people who entertain their friends with remarks on the weather would surely ( find it a monotonous topic in Japan, and if the tone of the voice be modulated by the condition of the elements it would be a doleful sound. There may be dayseven weeks—of fine weather over here, but by some mishaps the fair days this summer have be:n "like angels'visits." It was pouring rain when I left Yokohama, pouring more yet w hen I boarded the train in Tokyo, and all day long pattered on the car roof. It is eighteen miles from Yokohama to Tokyo, and from Tokyo to Sendai (the terminus of the railroad) two hundred and fifteen miles. I stopped one night in Tokyo at a hotel on the American plan. It is kept by natives. The cooking was good and the bed fair. There is a shade of diff rence between it and a first-class house at home, but the difference would not appear to one sound asleep. I had some difficulty in getting a ticket at the railroad station. The ticket...

October 17, 1889. Perseverance. BY Al/FIIEO J. HOCGH. Finish wbat thou hast to do, Prove thy right to wear the crown; Bravely tread thy journey through Ere the sun goes down. Lay some stone each passing hour In thy palaco of renown; Run the flag up on the tower Ere the snn goes down. Crowd thy bark, tho' storm-assailed, Over seas that seek to drown, To the harbor mouth, full sailed, Ere the sun goes down. Stand up bravely in the tight, Play the king and not the clown; Clear the trenches, storm the height, Ere the sun goes down. Plow thy furrow in life's field, Tho' the heavens may smile or frown; Falter not, look back nor yield Till the sun goes down. If thou canst not reap, then glean Midst the stubble bare and brown; Search the field and leave it clean Ere the sun goes down. Time enough to lay aside Warrior's mail or priestly gown In the dusk of eventide, When the sun goes down. —Selected. Vale Letter. BY E. B. BAGBY. "Despise not the day of small things is a good maxim.

A gun in the parlor, a kite in the hall, In the kitchen a book, and a bat, and a ball: , On the sideboard a ship, on the book-case a flute, J And a hat for whose ownership none would dispute; And out on the porch, gallantly prancinu nowhere, A spirited hobby horse paws at the air; And a well-polished pie plate out there on the shelf, Near the tall jelly jar, which a mischievous elf Emptied as slyly and slick as a mouseMake it easy to see There's a Boy in the House. A racket, a rattle, a rollicking shout, Above and below and around and about; A whistling, a pounding, a hammering of nails, The building of houses, the shaping of sails; Entreaties for paper, for scissors, for string, For every unfindable, bothersome thing; A bang of the door, a dash up the stairs, In the interest of burdensome business affairs, And an elephat hunt for a bit of a mouse, Make it easy to hear There's a Boy in the House.

October 17, 1889. ptorirs <»t* (JTamfurt* SATISFIED. "I shall be satisfied when I awake in Thy likeness." In ail this hurried, restless life we live, In all our eager striving after gain, In all the fruitless races that we run For wished-for good we never may attain; In all our life, whatever may betide, Is one sweet thought—"l shall be satisfied." Though long may seem the hours a'nd hard the task, Though all our life song seems but jangling strains, Though many voices be forever mute, That once so helped us by their glad refrains; Yet to our harshest hour is not denied The blessed thought—"l shall be satisfied." When in the hot pursuit of petty ends, We spend our whole life's strength to win a prize, And having grasped it, see it dwindle, shrink, Or change to dust, before our gloating eyes; When all life offers has been vainly tried, Still whispers hope—"l shall be satisfled." Not here, for in this training-school below, We get but glimpses of the pure content; Flashes o...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Worship. 'by J. L. D. Again, dear Lord, we seek Thy face Within this consecrated place; Fill Thou our hearts with filial love, And send Thy blessing from above. We lay aside all earthly care, And crowd again the house of prayer; Here grant us all our souls require, And may our hearts to heaven aspire. O holy calm! O heavenly rest! To those who are of Thee possessed, And meet Thee thus in holy awe, And wait upon Thy holy law. Thus may to us a foretaste be, This service which we hold with Thee — Of that sweet rest in heaven above, Where we shall ever share Thy love. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. The Cronin jcuse, now in process of mystification or solution in Chicago, has in it another element of lawlessness in the fact of the attempt to place jurymen in the box who were sworn to acquit the prisoners before the trial began.

2 Christian Heroism. SYNOPSIS OK A SERMON BY. H. D. CLARK, OF MT. STERLING, KY. Text.—"Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like meu, be stroug."— I Cor. xvi: 13. In the book of Acts we learn how the inspired apostles preached Christ to the world, and how men became Christians. This book is, indeed, the Genesis or book of beginnings. In the Epistles we learn how they instructed disciples in Christian living and Christian thinking. This distinction between preaching to the world and teaching the church is not sufficiently noticed. We get a glimpse, too, of the rough material these "wise master-builders" had to shape and polish for the palace of their King. After his line of argument and lessons against certain harmful tendencies in doctrine and practice, the apostle gives this summary exhortation. It is one of Paul's strong, condensed statements; brief, but weighty, and freighted to the guards with vital truth. Christian character is a growth —"first the blade, then the ear, a...

Herbert gave a sleepy grunt and turned his head on his pillow. "Herbert," ten minutes later, "don't go to sleep again." "No, Mother." "Get up at once and then there will be no danger of it." "Yes, in a minute." The next call was from the foot of the stairs. "Herbert, Herbert, breakfast is ready." He rubbed his eyes and sat up, gazing sleepily around him. "What a trial it is to have to get up. When I'm a man I'll stay in bed as long as I please." But Herbert was not really a lazy fellow, and had concluded in his own mind that a man who was very fond of lying in bed would be a very poor sort of a one, by the time his mother's voice was heard again. "Herbert, are you coming?" "Yes, ma'am. ' He bounded down the stairs and reached the table when breakfast was very nearly over, made two or three persons unco...
