December 12, 1889. Mnrcb-Bnililiii In Lane Settlement. BY MRS. GREATFAITH. Chapter IY. It came to be understood that Robbie was building the meetinghouse. " Better build yourself a house," said one who realized how poor was the little cabin that sheltered Mrs. Billings. "Why, we haven't any place. Besides, we can get along very well till Mr. Lurney wants the house we're in," he answered. "Send for me," said another, "when you're ready, I'll help you vet out the lumber." ° "Everybody will have to help," answered Rob. "It will take a great deal of lumber and work." The old men encouraged him because his pratt team used them. The young men raised objections to see how he would dispose of them. Some of the bovß of his age followed him as their hero. Others taunted him and sneered because they felt that too much interest was cent ring in Robbie. "You can't build a house," sneered one. "You wouldn't if vou could," retorted *Robbie, who did not always take bantering and sneers with equanim...

FIRST. —A remarkably low death rate, the result of great care in the selection of its risks, which are restricted solely to the healthiest portions of the United States, while several of its competitors have large agencies in the South Atlantic and Gulf States, in Central and South America, in Europe, Australia, and the West Indies. SECOND—The highest rate of interest on the best real estate securities.

2 A Lion In the Street. BY F. D. POWER. The world is full oflpzy people. An astute Frenchman, who was a great traveller, on being asked what trait he found common to all peoples whom he had visited answered: "Laziness." There are people so slothful that they would not turn their heads over on their pillows if the muddy water leaking through the roof fell plump into their eyes. There are whole communities where the people are bivalves rather than bipeds; human oyster-beds where men and women would spend a contemptible life of slothfulness growing plump for the graveworm's feast. The author of the "Castle of Indolence" was so controlled by this master-passion that it is recorded of him that he was found on one occasion under a peach-tree standing with his hands in his pockets eating the fruit as it grew on the branches. The writer is acquainted with a creature who would drink coffee if some one would invent a machine for raising the cup to his lips! If grave-stones told the truth on t...

Slfttnza. BY CHAS. S. LONG. King Humbert's Prime Minister, Crispi, boldly declares in favor of free schools for Italy. The government realizes the need for better educational facilities, and for independent thinking among the people. In this movement the government will meet with bitter opposition from the ecclesiastical powers, because the Church of Rome knows full well that should the government policy prevail the Roman hierarchy will receive a severe blow to its supremacy. The Catholic Church in Italy has thriven upon Italian ignorance, hence her opposition to State schools. Once sunny Italy was bound hand and foot under papal despotism, but now a new era is setting in. Italy realizes that her future prosperity and the securitv of her government depends largely upon the proper education of her people, and the separation of Church and State. The Pittsburg (Pa.) Presbytery had a lively discussion last Tuesday over the revision of the Confession of Faith. Rev. Dr. George T. Purves o...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. In Two Hemi«pliere«. BY 0. T. SMART. The Chicago trial is at last closed. The results are gratifying or not in |proportion as one favors the extreme penalty or not. If it were quite sure that sentences of life imprisonment would be carried outcompeletely the verdict would be better received. Unfortunately, sentences of long duration often wear out the remembrano® of the crime, and the criminal, working upon a weak sentimentality ofhnmanity, succeeds in escaping. If such sentences were usually carried out there would be less of the lawless lynching we so often hear about. The penalty is so little carried out that exasperated citizens, rather than suffer a miscarriage of justice, take the law into their own hands. Justice should be unerring in its punishment. We know that it is leaden-footed, then let its foot stay where it is placed. A halting justice makes a rank criminality. Law-abiding citizens must protect themselves, though sometimes the protection...

2 A Short Sermon. BY B. B. TYLER. The following, clipped from the New York Tribune of December 16th, will be of interest' to our readers. We wish Bro. Tyler Godspeed in our metropolis and in making known the gos< el through the daily press. The foregoing comments we have made without reading the sermon —which shows our confidence in Bro. Tyler's soundness. But, woe betide him if he should not "hew to the line" of the old Jerusalem gospel—i. e., we would stop publishing his Bermons!! Since writing the foregoing we have read the sermon, and find that it sounds very much like "Spectator's Creed," which we published last week. He sticks to the testimony, we think, and hence we are glad to place his thoughts before our readers: THE CREED OP CHRISTIANITY. A denomination concerning which the people of New York hear com oar a ively little, but which, nevertheless, has six thousand congregations in the United states, is "The Disciples of Christ." The pastor of the Church of the Di...

According to Eusebius and Jerome he was a native of Antiocb, and by profession a physician, and for the most p >rt a companion of St. Paul in some of his missionary tours (see Acts of Apostles), and also the author of the Acts of Apostle*. The sources of bis information, and the object in writing this gospel are given in the preface of the gospel (chapter i: 1-4).

December 26,1889. glftlngt. BY CHAS. S. LONG. Last week we quoted the utterances of the Rev. Babcock, who believes it expedient to have the church divided upon denominational lines, and expressed the opinion that he did not voice the prevailing sentiment of the day among church people. To show that the evils of denominationalism is appreciated to some extent, we call attention to the movement recently set on foot by the ministerial associations of Philadelphia. The movement looks to the forming of a Church Union. The initial step was taken last week and the following denominations were represented: Protestant Episcopal, Methodist Episcopal, Baptists, and Presbyterians; and the following ministers were chosen to draw up an outline in method of creed and movement: Rev. Dr. J. Howard Smith, of the Reformed Episcopal Church; Rev. Dr. J. K. Morris, of the Methodist Church; Rev. Dr. J. A. Worden, of the Presbyterian Church; Rev. Dr. De Wolf Perry, of the Protestant Episcopal Church, and R...
