October 24,1889. D. R. Wilkins, a colored minister among the Disciples, recommends to their Board of Missions the establishment of a religious newspaper through which to reach the colored people. He says "there is not a single denomination to-daj figuring after the colored people," from the Roman Catholics up, which has not established for them a newspaper. He thinks a weekly paper, properly managed and well edited, would do more to enlighten his race than ten of the best colored evangelists could do. He reasons wisely, we think, in recommending that a board consisting of five such men as Robert Graham and Robert Mathews be put in charge of the enterprise to manage, control, and be responsible to the board for it. We have confidence in such a scheme as this, which may develop into new and ulterior agencies for aiding the colored people of the South to understand and practice the teachings of Christ and the apostles. It could not be self-sustaining at first, but might become so at le...

6 General Christian Misttlonar>- Society. REPORT OF THE BOARD. Dbar Brethren of the Convention: This is the fortieth anniversary of this Association. We are devoutly thankful to the Father of all mercies for the blessings which have crowned all our years. We are but feeble instruments in His hands; yet, as co-workers with Him, we rejoice that our "labor is not in vain in the Lord." The monthly meetings of your Board have been well attended, and the business brought to our attention has been prayerfully considered. One of our number, Jacob Burnet, was called from labor to rest and eternal reward in March, and the vacancy was filled by the election of F. B Walker, pastor of the Richmondstreet church, Cincinnati. Later, S. G. Boyd, of Covington, resigned, and the vacancy was filled by the election of Walter S. Priest, pastor of the Fourthstreet church, Covington, Ky. During the year we have added new missions and missionaries, as follow s : Anniston, Ala., A. R. Moore; Sioux...

He reports pledges amounting to $15,382.49, the most of it payable in five annual installments. He has labored nine months, at a cost for salary and expenses of #1,130 37—about seven and one-half per cent, of the gross return. Allowing these pledges to shrink forty per cent., as they probably will in the course of five years, then the cost will be thirteen per cent. There is, however, a value in such agencies which cannot be set down in figures. They lefcture on missions and mission fields, and exhort to faithfulness in missionary work, and sow seed which will spring up and bear seed in after years. It is difficult to figure up the ratio of costs to results. Twenty years ago the Convention adopted a plan which took out of the hands of the General Board the raising of money for missions. All the money was to come to this treasury from State treasuries, and all t...

Hall, of the New York Christian, filled my appointments at Stanardsville on the fourth Lord's-day in September and at Rochelle on the first Lord's-day, and lectured at both places; also at Fair view and Madison Courthouse. The people were delighted with his deep, clear cut reasoning, and his wit, humor, and pathos. All voted him a success. Brethren should sustain him in his efforts to build up a strong weekly journal in New York in favor of primitive Christianity. One wns added to the church at Fairview by commendation on my last visit there. Yesterday I baptized a man who hadcome six miles to obey the Savior. He will take membership at Rochelle....

The Missionary Weekly, Vol. X. In Two Hemispheres. HY O. T. SMART. It appears that the powers of Frederick Douglass, minister to Hayti, are of a liberal character. From Washington correspondents we learn that some of his efforts are to be directed to the end of giving the control of the foreign affairs of the black republic to the United. States. The United States guarantee the autonomy of the island for naval privileges or the right to land troops at the discretion of American authorities to repel invasion or subdue insurrection. Some people may think this a very beneficent ofler on the part of this country, and that it would be a good thing for the tempest-tossed political sea of Hayti. But, judged by the light of history, it would be a precarious undertaking and might end in more things than the philosophy of the political movers of this action dream or. It is true the island of Hayti is not so large as Egypt, nor so important, but it is preciselv upon such a basis that England f...

2 A SERMON. Paul on Future Recognition. BY JOHN BRANDT. "For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of glorying? Are not even ye before our Lord Jesus at His coming? For ye are our glory and our jo.v." (I Thessalonians ii: 19, 20.) There are some very sad separations which take place in this world. At depots and at wharfs are witnessed some very sad separations. Young men and women marry and leave their fathers and mothers. Young men leave the home and go out into the world to engage in business and to enter school. All these departures from the parental roof are grievous, but this sadness can be allayed and this grief assuaged by the expectation of communicating witn one another, and by the hope of meeting again in this life. But there is a separation which takes place at death that is final as respects this world, and the grief caused by this separation shall never be assuaged unless we can meet one another and clasp glad hands on the other shore. Shall we meet with our loved ones ove...

6 jfomlla <&tvcle. Mother's Policeman. It was Nurse Mary's afternoon out, and John Mabin, 'junior, aged three years and six months, was left in his mother's care. When mother was well and bright, this was a very nice time for small John, for mother had a heap of fun and romp in her, and knew lots of nice ways of play to suggest, even when she was two busy to play herself. But this evening a mean old "blind headache" struck mother soon after dinner, and even little John could see there was no play in her then. She had some medicine that the doctor had given her, "to take and go to bed," but she didn't see why she mightn't take it and stay out of bed, and so she did. Her head felt a little better then, but she could not possibly keep herself awake, and in spite of having to nurse John, she lelt herself sinking away to the land of Nod. "Tell me something to play, mamma, 'fore you go s'eep," coaxed the little boy. Not a thing could mamma think of; she didn't seem ...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. Once in a while the world hears of Louis Kossuth, the Hungarian patriot. Many Americaus remember his visit to the United States in 1852. He was born in 1802, and although eighty-seven years old, his activity is ceaseless. At present he contemplates becoming a cilizen of Italv, that he may be a senatorin its Parliament. If he does he will outrank Gladstone in age," and almost equal him in the brightness of his faculties. Activity does not appear to be detrimental to longevity, providing the activity is directed in noble channels. Undoubtedly more men die through lack of thought than through its excess. Rust is more insidious in its approaches and carries its victims to decay sooner than honest, legitimate friction. "The first of elegances is idleness," says Victor Hugo. In a measure this is true; elegance is the absence of t hat which deforms or spoils beauty; idleness is the absence of all thiugs whatsoever. Idleness...

2 "Avenge not Yourselves." BY GILBERT E. IRELAND. Christian truth is not only beautiful in itself, but It imbues with its own lovely spirit all who possess and obey it. It is magnanimous, seeking to combat and overthrow error only by open, fair, and generous methods. Tnere is nothing mean nor cruel about the truth, nor can its disciples, whilst they are controlled by its principles, do an.vthing mean or cruel in its defense or spread. Persecutions in the religious world have been frequent and terrible, and invariably those who were in the right, on the side of truth, have endured the sufferings, but have not inflicted them. Truth does not persecute. The world has often seen disciples of the Savior submitting to the cruelties inflicted by advocates of error, but it never sees them wreaking vengeance on their enemies. They have given their limbs to the rending agonies of the rack; they have exultingly ascended the scaffold where block and axe awaited them; they have stood with clasped...

Joab went into his presence and upbraided him with lamenting for his enemies, instead of encouraging his friends, who would soon be driven away by his neglect. Most of them had already dispersed to their tents, but they returned when they heard that David had resumed his post at the gate of Mahanaim. Confusio...

November 7,1889. vale Letter. by e. b. baoby. As the Divinity School was closed four days last week to allow the professors and students to attend the meeting of the American Board in New York, we thought it a good opportunity to visit the metropolis. N ew York is a big city. When we remember that its transient population —those who come and go every day — isfjreat6r than the entire population _of Richmond, we can form some idea of its immensity. Of course we visited Central Park, walked across the great Brooklyn bridge, rode on the elevated railway, went to the Eden Musee and tried to Wild a conversation with _ the wax policeman in the vestibule, and saw Castle Garden, where about half a million immigrants are landed yearly. These places are so familiar to many readers of the Missionary that we will not enter into a detailed and encyclopedic description of them. The American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions has been organized about ninety years, and is the oldest of the ...

As-it ceased I turned: at my elbow Stood the mereßt scrap of a boy. Whose childish face was all aglow With the light of a hidden joy. The golden curls on bis forehead, Shaded eyes of the deepest blue, As if a bit of the summer sky Had lost in them its hue. They scanned my office rapidly, From ceiling down to floor, Then turned on mine their eager gaze.. As he asked the question o'er, "Is this the tel'graph office?" "It is, my little man," I said: "pray tell me what you want, And I'll help you if I can." Then the blue eyes grew more eager, And the breath came thick and fast; And I saw within the chubby hands, A folded paper grasped. "Nurse told me," he said, "that the lightning Came down on the wires, some day; And my mamma has gone to heaven, And I'm lonely since she is away; For my papa is very busy, And has...
