CHURCH * PAPER, established 187 J. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XII. THANKSGIVING. BT MABGA.BET I. BANGSTKB. What time the latest Sower hath bloomed, The latest bird hath southward flown ; When silence weaves o'er garnered sheaves Sweet idyls in our northern zone; When scattered children rest beside The hearth, and hold the mother's hand,— Then rolls Thansgiving's ample tide Of fervent praise across the land. And though the autumn stillness broods Where spring was glad with song and stir, Though summer's grace leave little trace On fields that smiled at sight of her, Still glows the sunset's altar-fire, With crimson flame and heart of gold. And faith uplifts, with strong desire And deep content, tho hymns of old. We bless our God for wondrous wealth, Through all the bright benignant year j For shower and rain, for ripened grain ; For gift and guerdon, far and near. We bless the ceaseless Providence That, watched us through the peaceful days, That led as home, or brou...

MY LITTLE MAX l 'ifirt a bright and happy boy. His step light, Ills heart wits say; With whistles. marbles pun una toy. He played each fleeting, livelong day. He'd play he was a train of cars. And, swiftly gliding down the street. Would stop for neither fence nor oars, Or any one he'd chance to meet. He whistled for the crossings loud. Nor would he look to lett or right: Hi-; thounhissoared higher than the clouds. Or swallows iu their homeward flight. He brought me comfort every day, For he was such a little man; And in the future, far away, He'd picture many a treasured plan. Sometimes mv heart grew strangely sad, While gazing on ids little form. And yettinc 1 to shield him from all baa. From every tempest, cloud and storm. 1 prayed for help each passing day, To guide his little, busy feet. And lead him in the Heavenly way. At last to walk the golden street. One day, when all the flowers had gone. There came, as only angels can, A messenger, and carried home My noble-hearted little...

CHURCH * l PAPER, established 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XII. A HYMN. The following beautiful and devotional lines we find going the rounds of the press, attributed to James G. Clark. It finds a sympathetic response from every Christian heart. Father, bend thine ear and hear mc While I call to Thee in prayer, Let thine angels linger near me In my time of grief and care,— Like the sun upon the river Let thy love upon me shine, Till my life shall sing forever In the bonndless deep of Thine. Father, when my lips arc pleading For the weary march to end, Homeless, lonely, torn and bleeding, Let me find in Thee a friend, When like leaves my hopes are falling, And despair has filled my breast, Let me hear thy low voice calling,— "Come, and I will give you rest." Father, let Thy spirit guide me Through the darkness and the blast, Let Thine angels walk beside nvj, Till temptation's power be past, Till I view the heights supernal Tow'ring o'er life's changing sen, Till...

For Our Church Paper. Bencflclarj' Funds. At tho last meeting of the Tenn. Synod, an unusual number of applicants for beneficiary aid presented themselves. These applicants were examined, and found to be young men of excellent moral character, endowed with good minds, and moved by the right spirit. It was thought a shame to turu off without aid such young men, when the demand for more pastors is so gieat everywhere in the Lutheran Church, and especially in our own Synod. We have now six Beneficiaries under the care of Synod, to whom the sura of |410 was promised at the last meetiugof our body. An examination of tbe Parochial Report in our last minutes shows that less than half this sum, or exactly $190.64, is promised by our congregations. It also reveals the fact, that eight pastorates —some of them the strongest and wealthiest of the Synod—have promised nothing. Has somebody been derelict? Who is it? Pastor or people f Of the amount promised $141.85 has beeu paid the Treasurer. Be...

CHURCH ' l PAPER. established 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XII. A SWEDISH POEM. It matters little where I wai born, If my parents were rich or poor: Whether they shrank at the cold world's scorn, Or walked in the.pride of wealth secure; But whether I live an honest man, And hold my integrity firm in my clutch, I tell you, my brother, as plain as I am, It matters much! It matters little how long I stay In a world of sorrow and care; Whether in youth I'm called away, Or live till my bones and pate are bare ; But whether I do the best lean To soften the weight of adversity's touch On the faded cheek of my fellow-man, It matters much ! It matters little where is my grave, On land or on the sea ; By purling brook or 'neath stormy wave, It matters little or naught to me; But whether the angel Death comes down, And marks my brow with hli loving touch As one that shall wear the victor's crown, It matters much! —BaptM Weekly.

CORRESPONDENCE. For Our CliurcU Paper. Church Work. Dear Editor:—Your correspondent has just returned from a visit to a now Lutheran organization, at "Glen Alpine," on the line of the Western N. O. R. R-, the result of the labors of our esteemed young brother, the Rev. Mr. Rudisill, but recently ordained to the gospel ministry by the Tenn. Synod. For a new organization, it is one of the most hopeful, in connection with the above Synod. These brethren, though a mere handful in point of numbers, have erected for themselves a plain, but neat and comfortable house of worship, and have gone to work, apparently with the firm belief that, under Ood, they will, at no distant day, become a large and flourishing congregation. One of the officers, in his enthusiasm, informed us that when they were about to build, there were to be found those like to Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem, who laughed to scorn the undertaking of Nehemiah to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, said they "Throw your lumber do...

OOHRESPON D ENOE. For Our Church Paper. Wonderful RescaeOne does not often see much snow in Jerusalem and Bethlehem, but violent rniu-storms prevail during the winter Beason. When a storm sets in, the rain beats into the dwellings day and night, while it lasts. Some years ago, at jUhristmas time, the cold became very intense by reason of the snow fall, and when the snow melted* the water penetrated the roofs of the houses and damaged them, so that the people had daily to be in a dread for- fear that they would fall in. In Jerusalem many old dwellings and warehouses broke down, and in Bethlehem fourteen dwellings tumbled down in one night. The following tragic occurrence took place in Gaza, as it is related by Missionary Miller of Bethlehem. A man and his wife and child were one night sleeping in an apartment of their house. A thief broke in. Now thought he, if the child should cry, the parents would get np. So he carried the child in its cradle out iu front Of the house and set it d...

Insect Life. "Tho last summer has boon especially favorable to Insect lifo. l'lant parasitos have thriven in the most unexpected places. Trees wore infested with an extraordinary number of eaterpillars. Wherever there was a mustard plant little green lico could be found in numbers that, could not be reckoned. Even in Central Park, whore care is taken of the trees, an unusual collection of parasites was found only a short time ago. While theso forms of lifo are disagreeable to the majority of persons, there are some little creatures to be found in the park on bright days which arc capable of interesting any one who has the use of his eyes." The speaker, standing at the edge of a walk in the park, was gazing intently, while ho talked, at a brown s]x>t of earth where the grass had failed to tako root. The person spoken to, not having tho use of his eyes in the sense meant by the naturalist, saw nothing except an unsightly bare place which should nave been green. " You don't ...
