November 7, 1889. Be On the Watch for Jesus. Be on the watch for Jesus! Hear what He hath to say From hour to hour; and He will shed His light upon thy way. For every swift winged moment, His messenger shall be Bearing within its narrow bounds Some word from Him to thee. Be on the watch for Jesus, And thou shalt learn to trace His faithfulness, when clouds conceal The brightness of His face. And in the humble path assigned By His dear band to thee, Shall room be found to know thy Lord, And serve acceptably. Be on the watch for Jesus! Be careful lest thou miss One tiny token of His love, His presence, or His grace. He toucheth thee at every point, In common things, or rare; Go forth to meet Him, dearest heart! Thou'lt find Him everywhere. Be on the watch for Jesus! Until thy vision keen Grow quick to recognise His form, To other eyes unseen. Oh I keep thy heart for Him alone, And so shalt thou abide Beneath His shadow, with His love Forever satisfied. —In the Presence. Rest or Labor ...

2 The Human Heart. The human heart is a tiny ship, On without rebt it steers; On, straight on, to its haven bright, Laden with hopes and tears. Life is the ocean, deep and wide, And fat*, the winds that storm And drive and stir the gloomy clouds, Clouds that our tear-drops form. The sail is made of visions fair, And honor the upright mast: Well, little ship, if these stand firm, Though strong the sudden blast! Desires move the rudder small; Love is the magnet strong; The compass, friendship, plainly shows If e'er the course be wrong. . Around each dangerous rock and reef Steers judgment, quick to mark; The eye upon the magnet fixed Is pilot of the bark. Sail, little ship, with calm, sure trust; With joy and courage sail; In the safe haven shalt thou rest, In spite of flood and gale. —From the German of Friedrich Hamfeck.

INTRODUCTORY.— Thekingdom had reached its highest glory at the death of David. It was in perfect peace, and so thoroughly organized that no one for a moment disputed its continuance in his line. There was good reason, indeed, to anticipate that its power and greatness would continue to increase, as in some ways they did. The fullest development of material prosperity and the greatest splendor of the theocracy are associated with the reign of Solomon. But underneath this glittering exterior the elements of decay were already at ...

November 14,1889. The Model Sunday-school. rcv E J. BUGBEE, SUPERINTENDENT CAPITOL HILL MISSION, WASHINGTON, 0. C. Every now and then in conventions and elsewhere we hear about model Sunday-schools. There are a few Sunday-schools which can be pointed to with pride as approaching very nearly the model school: but it is to be lamented that they are largely in the minority, and there is less need to speak of tJem than of the great majority which might be brought up to a higher standarj? suppose there is not a school represented here that is accomplishing all it might accomplish, and I suppose also that those who are most interested 111 them ; would like to see them doing better. I think it will be well, therefore, to try to ascertain why the majority seems to be on the wrong side, and see whether some improvement cannot be made. Let us inquire, first, what the trouble is, and then, how to remedy it. It is possible that the reason whv some schools are dull is, that they exist principall...

6 Letter from Germany. BY G. P. COLEIt. It is probable that Mrs. Coler and 1 will be in Halle, Germany, for several months. The Missionary Weekly comes to us regularly and it is always gladly received. I have been thinking that some of its many readers may be interested in" knowing something about religious matters in this country. I shall, therefore, write a few letters on tfcis subject. German civilization, like that of England and our own country, is indebted for its best features to the upbuilding power of Christianity. The introduction of Christianity into this Country was the result of the missionary enterprise of the Roman Catholic church in the seventh and eighth centuries. It is interesting to note that in the sixth and seventh centuries missionaries from Rome carried Christianity to the British islands, and'that a century.later these islands sent out some of the most zealous missionaries that the world has known since the days of the apostles. It was through their zealous ...

The boy with a self-control, •Who curbs his temper and his tongue, And though he may be big and strong, Would scorn to do the slight* st wrong To any living soul. Who is the truly brave? The boy who can forgive, And look as though he had not heard The mocking jest, the angry word; Who, though his spirit may be stirred, Yet tries in peace to live. Who is the truly brave? The boy whose daily walk. Is always honest, pure, and bright; Who cannot lie, who will not fight, jßut stands up boldly for the right, And shuns unholy talk. Who is the truly brave? The boy who fears to sin, Who knows no other sort of fear, • strives to keep his conscience clear, Nor heed his comrade's taunt or jeer, If he hath peace within. Who is the truly brave?

8 Three 'Words of Strength. There (tre three lessons I would write— Three words as with a burning pen, In tracings of eternal light Upon the hearts of men. Have hope. Though clouds environ round And gladness hides her face in scorn, Put off the shadow from thy browNo night but hath its morn. Have ffiith. Where'er thy bark is driven— The calm's disport, the tempest's mirth— Know this: God rules thehosts of heaven, The inhabitants of the earth. Have love. Not love alone for one; But man as man, thy brother call; And scatter like the circling sun, Thy charities on all. Thus grave these lessons on thy soul — Hope, Faith, and Love-and thou shalt find Strength when life's surges rudest roll, Light when thou else wert blind. —Schiller. NORTH CAROLINA.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. x. In Two Hemispheres. BY tt. T. SMAKT. The phenomenal Cronin case drairs if ß wear .V disorderly ilength along. Lately it was necessary to an adjourn because of an encounter between a lawyer of the defense and an attorney of the prosecution. For a time very unseemly was the spectacle in what should be a most dignified tribunal. To the common mind, reverence is always allied to the indeterminate and mysterious; but when men who call themselves exponents of the law descend to the level of breakers of the law, what can be expected in the shape of public morals. Liberty run to seed grows only hemp for hangmen's ropes. The doctrine of aggressive defiance has been preached too much Bince the French Revolution ; perhaps it might be well to go back to the doctrine of {rassive obedience preached so ong before. The kite of liberty, minus the tail of law, is certainly describing some very erratic convolutions in the firmament of the great city by the lake. A notabl...

2 CM-Biilii ft Lane Settlement. BY MRS. GREATFAITH. I t Chapteh 1. There was do housf of worship in Lane Settlement; no change marked the advent of the first day of the week save a general cessation of the heavier toil that weights existence. There was no assemblings where the prosperous might lift up the spirit in {grateful joy for the blessings of ite, where the weary and disconsolate might find strength to bear the burdens that could not be laid down. There were those of the inhabitants who hoped some time to build a "meetin' house," but they hoped as ardeutly for the millennium. Mrs. Billings, though she longed for its appearing, held to the opinion that the meetin' house must take precedence. She clung with desperation to the popular tradition, "Where there is a will there is a way," while her experiences were fast planting a deep, secret conviction of its untruth. Perhaps it was as well for her that, as yet, her longing had no fulfillment. She was not a product of surrounding ...

What would you do if you had a wee tease, Asking you daily such questions as these: "Mamma, does God simply turn down the light Just when He guesses its time to be night?" "Are flowers made out of butterfly's wings?" "Why do the trees put their clothes on in spring? And then when cold winter comes get all undressed?" "How does the robin get blood on its breast?" "Will Santa Claus answer that letter of Zeb's?" "Are bicycles made out of big spiderwebs?" "Does the man in the moon smoke while looking about? And are the blue clouds just the smoke he puffs out? And the stars, are they just the wee sparks be lets drop?"

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. x. In Two Hemlßpnere». BY G. T. SMART. On the 19th of this month Ferdinand de Lesseps celebrated his eighty fourth birthday, thus completing another year of a most eventful life. It is inexpressibly sad that M. de Lesseps should pass the closing years of his life under the cloud of the Panama failure. Perhaps his sanguine disposition helps him to bear the blame which attends, not only Panama failures, but all failure. His temperement must be hopeful, or he never would have undertaken such works as those at Panama or Suez. A record of his eightyfour years is interesting reading. When young, as an attache of the French court, he resided in Lisbon, Tunis, Alexandria, Barcelona and Mudrid, closing his diplomatic career as French agent in the negotiation of a peace between the Republicans of Rome and resident French soldiers, in the stirring times of the unification of Italy. He astonished the world by the success of his engineering skill in the work of the Su...

2 World-Wide Evangelization the Work of tlie Church. BY B. B. TYI-iKK. "Necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not tie goßpel." (I Cor. ix: 16.) Your attention is called to the fact that the special, peculiar, and pre-eminently important work of the church of Chrißt is the preaching ot the gospel of the Son of God. Whatever else the church may be or do, it must be evangelistic; it must be diligent in the publication of the joyful message of redeeming love to the very ends of th« earth, among all nations, and tribes, and kindreds, and tongues, and peoples. This is the single thought to which I invite your attention during this hour, and which I desire simply, singly, and only to press upon your attention. Jesus was the original foreign missionary, who came from heaven to earth in obedience to the w 11 of the Father to save men irom sin. God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on him might not perish, but might attain to ...
