The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. BY NEIL, MCLEOD. Conckkt OK Praykk koh Mishions.—Many churches unite on the first week in each month in a concert of prayer for missions. This is acceptable to God and greatly cheering to the hearts of our missionaries in all lands, tor they believe in prayer, and they love to know that they are remembered by their brethren, and it is profitable to all them that do this thing. The Lord turned the captivity of Job when he prayed for his friends. The tide of prosperity in many a church ro3e when they began to pray and work for missions, and like Job, the Lord gave them twice as much as they had before. We will give, in this department, each month the topics for prayer and such helpful facts and suggestions as will enable our churches to make this monthly meeting one of special interest and a means of great blessing and grace to the cause of Christ at home and abroad. What we want is more prayer. We want money, we want men; but we want prayer still more. ...

2 , ,r Studies in Sacred History. MY M. B. UVAN. IN EDEN AND OUT OF IT. ■"And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Lden; and there he put the man whom he had formed."—Gen. ii: 8. Man's first residence on the ■earth was in the Garden of Eden. Where that was located we have no • sure means of determining. The soundest bibical scholarship of the present locates it in the valley of the Euphrates, near the mouth of that river. The Bible statements are just indifinite enough to give room of speculation, and men have not been slow to take advantage of it. The various and conflicting opinions as to the site of Eden are interesting and sometimes amusing. Geike says that the list of writings, more or less, fully devoted to this subject, "'embraces not fewer than eighty treatises." Theselocate Eden in all imaginable places, from the Hindoo Koosh mountains to the South Sea Islands; and from India to the Baltic Sea. Two interesting treatises on this subject are supposed to be reasonably fam...

February 7,1889. weigh everything- by the words 0 f God's truth, remembering that rtl) lv the truth can make us free. Arthi r M. Groivden. "Didn't Have Time."—What is time for if it is not to be had ? There are twenty-four hours ofit every day, and what becomes of it if y° u don't get some of it? Much depends on what you are whether you have time or not. The boy did not have time to write to his mother, but lie had plenty of time to be out with comrades until past midnight. The business man had no time to read his Bible, but he had plenty of time to devote to the study of the presidential succession and the intricacies of protection and free trade. The husband had 110 time to stay with his wife at home, but he had plenty of tiule to visit the club-room. The soul had no time to make its peace with God, and went into eternity unprepared to meet the Judge. No excuse is balder of truth than that which pleads "no time" for this or that of the great and valuable concerns of human life, wh...

6 The IvOve-Aflfaira of Some Famous Men. "Never was poet noworofyore who was not tremulous with love-lore." The Ettrick Shepherd says that he "always liked women* better than men," and his sweetest songs echo his own experience. He gave a happy and playful turn to this admiration when he wrote: "Could this ill world ha'e been contrived To stand without mischievous woman, llow peacefu' bodies might ha'e livde, Released frae a' the arte sae common! But since it is the woefu' case That man maun ha'e this teasing crony, Why sic a sweet bewitching face? Oh, had she no' been madesaebonny 1" He himself was fortunate in drawing a priee in the matrimonial lottery, his wife being a handsome and estimable woman, much above his original rank in life, and he showed his appreciation of a happy fireside by being a faithful and devoted husband! If it was his ambition to rival Burns as a bard, he had fewer of Jibe greater poet's failings to reproach himself with. One Sunday young Walter Scott offere...

There's always work in plenty for little hands to do, Something waiting every day, that none may try but you; Little burdens you may lift, happy steps that you can take, Heavy hearts that you may comfort for the blessed Savior's sake. There's room for children's service in this busy world of ours; We need them as we need the birds and need the summer flowers; And their help at task and toiling, the Church of God may claim, And gather little followers in Jesus' holy name. There are words for little lips, sweetest words of hope and cheer; They will have the spell of music for many a tired ear; Don't you wish your gentle words might lead some souls to look above, Finding rest, and peace, and guidance in the dear Redeemer's love? There are orders meant for you; swift and jubilant they ring, O! the bliss of being trusted on the errands of the King! Fearless march in royal service; not an evil can befall Those who do the graciou...

8 COLORADO. Golden, Jan. 28,1889.—January 20th 1 went to Sterling (Colorado) to dedicate a new church building". They have a neat brick house which is a credit to the town. The property is valued at $2,500. There were not more than ten members, who took an active part in this work, so you may judge something of the sacrifices they had to make. I would that some of our wealthy churches and people could see the noble efforts some of these little bands in the West are making. I am sure it would touch them and inspire a spirit of benevolence. A brother in Sterling told me that the church property was worth more than the combined property of all the members. One brother, who lives in a sod house, has given more dur ng the last year than whole congregations in some sections. I know congregations East worth $200,000 that pay $275 per year for Christ's cause. Shame 1 I held meetings Monday and Tuesday afternoons after dedicating, and had four additions; one by letter, two from the M. E. chu...

The lollowiug is the report of the Committee of the American Board on China: Your committee are impressed with the tremendous importance to the Christian world and the kingdom of God of this traditional period through which China is just beginning to pass. New and ritrange forces are laying their hands upon the empire, and mighty changes are coming whether we do our duty or not. The opportunity of Christ's Church is in this traditional hour. The view of the field is appalling. Try to grasp the facts. We have 00,000,000 of people in this country, almost every soul of whom knows something of Christ, and a church for every GOO people. In China, not one in 400 ever heard the name of Christ! In this land a pastor to every (500 inhabitants! In China, a missionary to every 818,000! The question arises, Is the task too great for Christendom to master? Has God made a mistake? Has God laid upon us a burden too heavy for us to bear? I...

2 .Studies in Sacred History. 1»Y M. Li. It VAN. I BEGINNINGS.; To the thinking man there is always a pleasant interest attached to the beginning of things. To stand beside the fountain •whence issues the stream, which, swelling into a mighty torrent, bears the commerce of a nation on its bosom ; to bend over the cradle of the babe, who, when grown to manhood, shakes the world; to enter the birth-cham-ber of a government, which, in its maturity, realizes the best hopes of humauity—these are not idle and unprofitable employments ; they are in the highest degree pleasant and instructive. For this reason there is a peculiar interest attached to the period so briefly described in the first four chapters of Genesis. It is the period of beginnings. Human action and human experience to-day are much the same as they have been for generations. We travel in the same circle in which our fathers journeyed—a circle widening, it may be, a trifle with each generation, but representing much the sam...

Febhuaky 14,1881). Company. Congressman Springer makes the statement that if Congress does not pass the Oklahoma bill, 30,000 people will enter the territory within 30 days. A force of soldiers would be required to dislodge them and much bloodshed would be the result. The friends of the bill have made a great canvass of the Senate and believe the measure will pass. North Carolina Notes. BY J. J. HAKPEK. Many willing hands are idle, that would be employed if they had something to do. Many who would be willing workers for Jesus are doing nothing, because they see nothing to do. Many devout, earnest, anxious Christian women are as ready as Mary ot old to perform any duty within their power, if some one in whom they have confidence would only tell them what, and how. Such spirits can be found in every congregation, and it is due them and due the cause, that their unemployed energies and zeal be called ed forth and directed in the proper channel, and utilized for good. I advise all such ...

6 Bunch of Buds. BY'H. J. SEAMAN. Death is a thief that robs you of your raiment. The resurrection is a royal prince that gives you the costliest garments and covers you with honor. You should rather glory in distress than despise it, for when in trouble an Angel stands by you. When the trouble is over the blessed Angel is gone. It is pleasant to a Christian in the exercise of piety to see how a gracious God frustrates his corrupt inclinations, and hinders his folly. Worldly things are often a magnet drawing the Christian's heart away from God. Gilded earth is often such a load to the saint that he moves but very slowly heavenward. God sends a contrary wind of misfortune, and rids him of the burden; then he goes more rapidly on his journey. When advised to abstain from an evil thing say not "It is a dead coal and cannot burn me," for by your touch you receive its smut that does you harm. If God's truth makes you uncomfortable conform your life thereto, and so avoid the discomfort. D...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter From Boston. BY W. H. ROGERS. Constitutional Prohibition was the theme at Tremont Temple last Monday, not only of Cook's prelude, but of a mass-meeting which preluded Cook's prelude. If getting up in the morning will carry the Bay State for constitutional prohibition, the Bay State is safe, for at ten o'clock last Monday morning there were nearly fifteen hundred people present in the interest of the good cause. Hon. J. B. Grinnell, of Grinnelle, lowa, made a very humorous and stirring off-hand talk. A Boston paper characterized Mr. Grinnell as a characteristic Westerner, who made a characteristic western speech." Nevertheless our best eastern audiences seem to delight in the breezy, booming western style. Mr. Grinnell began as follows: "I suppose you want to know about the health of your daughter, lowa, the daughter of Massachusetts?" She is well, thank you." Continuing, he Baid that whenever lowa does anything—raising crops, getting up a cyclon...

With such a statement, does "the inspired penman characterize > man's moral coudition before the flood. The gradual process bv which this climax was reached, as well as the climax itself, vividly exemplifies the awful havoc 1 which sin makes in the moral \world. When Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit they sowed in the soil of the race the seeds of rebellion against God. There followed a noxious and poisonous growth which ended in a harvest of moral death. The first fruits of that harvest were waved in the bloody hand ■of Cain, the first murderer. The tfinal and full ingathering for that age, was completed in that which 'the waters of the flood buried beneath the •debris ot a ruined world. Morally speaking, the antede'luvian race was divided into two mparts. This was especially...
