November 28,1889. gifting*. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. t>-o Robert Moffett, Corresponding Secretary of the G. C. \f S stopped over on hie way from'the State Convention to Knoxville, Tenn., and gave us a most excellent discourse on mission work. The Roanoke church proposes to be a missionary church from the beginning on the principle that as "the twig is bent the tree inclines." All missions and missionary work, whether district, State, home, or foreign, are to be a part of our work and receive such support as we are able to give. It is much easier to start a new church in the right direction than to reform an old one and infuse into it a missionary spirit. The trustees have disposed of our vacant lot, and the proceeds of the sale will go toward the liquidation of the debt on our church-house, and it is the intention of the congregation, now that the ownership of the proEerty is decided, to fix up our ouse and make itcozy and comfortable. I believe that the Lord's people should see...

6 Dinl-Miiii in Lane Settleßeßt. BY MRS. GRBATFAITH. CHATTKI: 2. Mrs. Billings longed for something better and hi<>ber than the present religious status. But she subjected herself to such rigid self-examinations, and always found so much to deplore in her own state that she felt unworthy even to hint there might be something bttter for all, lest she might damage the cause at heart by an appearauce, however unreal, of sell-righteousness. She prayed, therefore, more for strength to endure than for any alleviation of distress. Added to this her temporal wants press■ed her so sorely. Iler children were often baiefooted wheu winter came, were coarsely and too thinly clad. Yet, when the last loaf was on the table, and «he knew not whence the next would come, more earnestly than she was aware she cried to the God who hears, that he would not forget her and her little ones. She sewed, embroidered, taught, and the children sometimes susSected that she wept, and wonered ...

November 28, 1889. Tot'® Selfishness. Aunt Addie shook her head dolefully, behind the library curtain and sighed as she said to Aunt Lou, "Isn't it a dreadful pity that a child, as bright and mviner as Tot, should be so spoiled and selfish?" "Spoiled? Selfish?" Aunt Lou asked, amazed. "Why, Addie, you surprise roe! I thought her as sweet and good as she could be " "Then it's because you haven't watched her as 1 have. Only yeßterdav I saw her trade her marble-bag to Dick for a big orauge, and then pocket the fruit deliberately, although the twins, dear babies, were both hungrily waiting for her to share with them. I suppose she was waiting for a chance to slip off alone and eat it all herself." "Perhaps she wanted to surE rise them with it later.' Aunt iOU suggested timidly. "Nonsense!" her sister snapped. "Be side, not two hours afterward 1 saw her climb the tree and pick off half a dozen of the very ripest peaches. To be sure she did give one to each twin then, but I noticed she ke...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. in Two Hemisphere*. IIY ». T. SMART. The most interesting news of the week is that Henry M. Stanley is heard from, and that at his last writing he was engaged in persuading Emin Pasha to leave his inhospitablepashalic. From the explorer's letter it would eeem tnat Emin possesses as strange an infatuation for the land of bis adoption as General Gordon possessed for Khartoom, and so far it is uncertain whether Stanley will bring Emin back with him or not. Dr. Edward Schnitzer, or Emin Pasha as he is called, has had a notable career. He is an Australian, and only forty-nine years old. In 1868 he was appointed surgeon in the Turkish armj;. After being sent to Egypt he became surgeon-general to General "Chinese" Gordon's forces in Southern Egypt. In 1878 the suigeoa-general was transmuted into a go veraor-general, his province being Equatorial Egypt. When he arrived he found the country in a miserable condition, and at once he set to woi k to remedy the wid...

2 Ctard-Miifli In Lane' Settlement. BY MRS. GREATFAITH. Chapter, 111. It waß not so easily settled. Both children had accepted the proposition in good faith. Young as they were, they had roamed far and wide in search of flowers, berries, nuts, and were constantly coming upon sweet surprises in the way of new views and beautiful landscapes, to which both little hearts were keenly alive. They chose the site and decided the matter of doors, windows, porches, steps. Robbie thought churches diq not have porches. Nellie thought they ought to have, anyway. There was some small contention in which each insisted, but as nothing came of it they decided to leave it to the Building Committee. Thev informed the Deacon of what nad been done, and of the chosen site—a beautiful knoll easily accessible. They were but babes, and no motives of personal interest had biased them. "That will do, Robbie," said the Deacon, when informed of what they had done. Robbie's little heart was all aglow; but the De...

Decembeb 5,1889. | Letter flrom Boston. I BY W. H. HOGERB. The fire fiend haß made sad havoc in this vicinity during the past week. Five millions ofproEsrty have been destroyed in ynn, and an equal amount in Boston. Having viewed the tossing, pitching breakers of flame that swept over forty acres of territory in the former city last Tuesday, I have some idea of what the Chicago fire of 1871 must have been. Eighty-seven shoe factories were burned, many of which were elegant five and six story brick structures. Three hundred buildings were destroyed and 162 families are homeless. The central depot, three banks, and the offices of all the daily newspapers have been burned. There was no loss of life and only one church edifice was destroyed, but that was one of the finest churches in the city. The sea of hissing, roaring, crackling fire billows, swallowing with demonish madness everything in its pathway, while falling walls, as of heavy cannonading deafened our ears, was a scene of appa...

"And if there isn't any fall in the price of fruit," he said, "our peuch orchard is going to net us a cool hundred dollars." And as he spoke he flung the homespun towel, with which he had been wiping his hands, over the back of a chair. "Oh, George, do hang up the towel," said Mrs. White; "the nail is just as near as the chair back, and I have enough steps to take in the course of a day without waiting on you." "You are always grumbling about something," said the young farmer, as he jerked the towel to its nail. "There, does that suit you?" "Here is a letter from Cousin Dora, George," said Mrs. White, wisely avoiding the mooted question. "She wants to come here and board a few weeks." "Well, let her come," said Mr. White. "It won't cost us a great deal, and a little extra mo ley always counts up at the end of theyear." "But, George, i ...

December 5, 1889. The Uftathoiue. BY SUSAN COOLIDGE. High lifted on the island cliff Its lantern fronts the sea, And sendeth forth a fine, straight ray Of dazzling light to me— A slender line of shimmering shine Across night's mystery. It is the path set for my eyes To travel to the light And warm their dprkpMs in the blaze, And be made glad and bright. None other may catch just that ray. Or have the self-same sight. And yet, a hundred other eyes Bent on that central blaze, Find each its separate, shining path, Its line of guiding rays; And all eyes meet in concord sweet By all these differing ways. No voice shall say: '"the Light is mine, All other eyes are dim I" No hand the glory hold or hide Which streams to ocean's rim, None claim or seize one ray as his More than belongs to him. O Light of Truth, which lighteneth all, And shineth all abroad, What favored soul or souls shall say, "Mine is the only road." Each hath his own, to him made known, And all lead up to Ood. —Tudependent...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. In Two Hemisphere*. BY O. T. SMAIIT. Again the city of Boston has been visited by a great fire. Following close upon the Lynn fire a great conflagration takes place in Boston with an estimated loss 0ff10,000,000.1t isexpected that some of the insurance companies, will collapse. Nearly 920,000,000 worth of property in the same locality have bden burned within a week. From the account of the Boston fire it would seem that fire proof buildings are only fire-proof under favorable circumstances, and that in a great fire these circumstances are missing. The terrors of city life seem to be increasing. Closely packed populations run more serious risks than those covering a large area. The law of equilibrium holds sway in all things, and so for the advantages of city life there are certain disadvantages. What is gained in time is lost in power, is the mechanical rule; what is gained in facility is lost in risk, is the financial balance, and what is gained in pl...

2 A Tbanluglvlng Sermon. BY M. B. lIJ'AN. "Thanks he to God forliisimspeukiiblu gift-." (II Cor. ix: 1,6.) Paul had just be#n considering the two thoughts of giving and thanksgiving. The brethren in Achaia were exhorted to make ready their contribution to the necessities of the poor saints in Jerusalem, and they were reminded that "the miuistration of this service not only filleth up J the measure of the wants of the ! saints, but aboundeth also through many thanksgivings onto God," etc. And then, transferring his thought from Christian benevolence and gratitude to the source of all Christian excellences—the Christ—he breaks out in this insuppressible expression : "Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift." At a time when the attention of a nation isdirected, according to honored custom, to thecauses which mortals have for gratitude to God it is well for us to consider the pregnant expression. Three thoughts shine out from the face of this passage. The Christ, of whom Paul was thin...

INTRODU CTOR Y. —In our last lesson we had an account of Solomon's fall before.the many temptations to which he was exposed. Under the influence of his heathen wives his heart was turned from the Lord after other gods, and he was induced to provide places for the worship of Ashtoreth, Milcont, Chemosh, and other heathen gods. These outrages—the more flagrant in the king who bad himself built tbe temple, and to whom Jehovah bad twice given solemn warnings, mingled with his promises, called down the wrath of God whose covenant with David alone saved Solomon from thefateof Saul.

December 12,1889. Sittings. BV CHAB. S. LONG. The desecration of the Lord'sday by a church, which claims to be the only true church, is of frequent occurrence in *he large cities when it calls to ita assistance brass bands, and with banners and music parades the etreets on the way to the laying of some corner-stone, or the dedication of some cathedral. Mayor Filter and Director Stokley, ot Philadelphia, have prohibited bands of music parading the streets on Sunday ; and the Presbyterian Ministerial Association, last Monday, passed a resolution of thanks ana pledged its moral support to the Mayor and Director in carrying out this reform. » » » Rev.

e Valley of Virginia Notes. BY J. D. HAM.VKKR. Much travel and many cares have delayed thede notes for some time, but we promise greater regularity for the future. Our meeting at Walnut Spring, in which I rendered some assistance, was continued by J. A. Spencer, and closed with eight additions. The church at that place is in good condition. It is not only supporting her own preacher, and thus "sounding the word in," but as is seen by her liberal responses, manifests an interest in d strict, State, home, and foreign enterprises, and thus "sounds out the word" and gains for herself the a postolic commendation. My first appointment at Fair View was greeted by a rainy Lord's-day morning which gave me a small hearing. At night we had a full house. I am again here.
