Page 7 [Newspaper Page] — The Missionary Weekly — 26 December 1889

December 26, 1889. Ctad-MiK IB Law Settlement. BY MRS. GREATFAITH. CHAPTEB V. Miranda, the Deacon's only child, was the almost constant companion of a mother whose health wks sadly broken. As a little thing she bad toddled about after her mother, pleading to sweep, which she was allowed to try as soon as she could manage to carry a broom; sometimes too, to the detriment of the crockery and other household gods. But a few accidents taught her caution,and with unimpaired confidence she begged | to be permitted to do whatever H, «he saw her mother do. Ab her ™ wishes were, when possible, gratified, she became an incomparable aid, early learning to cook, bake, wash, iron, scrub, sew, and all the minutiae of housekeeping. Lately, Miranda had discovered that . these things alone could not satisfy her heart. She longed, hardly aware of it, for a wider horizon. Deacon Turney had been rather proud of this extraordinary child and sometimes dreamed that he would, as womanhood approached, surro...

8 Valley of Virginia Motes. BY J. D. HAMAKER. Our meeting at Fair View continued eight days. ' Fair attendance; good orderand attention; no additions. I visited while there some twenty families, and made acquaintance with them at their homes. I feel that I know the congregation better tfcan when the meeting began, and that I can do them more good because of it. They have an excellent house, which is comparatively new. A small debt is still on them and some finishing touches are needed, both of which we hope to accomplish before the year is over. Fifty dollars of the debt was generously donated on condition that the congregation would raise as much on the other needed work. Hon. H. J. Smoot was missed from his accustomed seat at Antiock od the second Lord's-day, being in Richmond attending upon his senatorial duties. Page and Shenandoah did themselves credit in sending him to represent them. We organized a Ladies' Aid Society at Bethlehem, with fifteen members. President, Mrs. Annie ...

[The Missionary Weekly. ■VOL. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. I It seems a long journey to ■make to take a few minutes ■ peep at the sun, when we read I that an astronomical party have I gone as far as St. Paul de Loanda. I This place on the west coast of I Africa nine degrees south of the equator. Yet such is the fact. An eclipse of the sun visible to best advantage at that degree took place on the 23d instant, and an expedition sailed some time ago to take observations. The ancient plau of speculating as to probable causes of nature's grandest phenomena is giving way to a patiently critical examination of the facts, and as a consequence we are afforded well defined truths to think upon. The lump of luminosity which we call the sun is a prime factor in the science of astronomy, and in order to gain correct information about the stars and asteroids it is necessary to fix the exact value of the sun. Hence the expedition. Men have given up the Columbus plan of sailing the ocea...

2 The Value and Necessity of Good Reading:. BY M. B. KYAN. "Who of us can tell What h<> had been had Cadmus taught The art that fixes into form the thought— Had Plato never spoken from his cell, Or his high harp blind Homer never strung V' Thus pertinently and poetically does Lord Lyttou bring us face"to face with the debt we owe to books; or, we might say, in the age of varied printed agencies, to the printing-press. Who of us, indeed, can tell what he had been if the influence of the printed page had never fallen on his powers to give them direction and assist their development. We may say that nineteenth century civilization is the fruit of the printing-press. For, back of the common school, the college, and the university is the printed page, where the gathered treasures of the world's thought lie ready for the teacher and the pupil, and without which education in our use of the term would be impossible. And after the school has been forsaken, the printingp...

GOLDEN TEXT.—My soul cloth magnify the Lord, find my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.—Luke i: 46-47. TIME.— Early in April, B. C. 5; six months after the last lesson. . PLACE —At the home of Zacharias and Elizabeth, the parents of John the Baptist, in the hill country of Judea; probably at Hebron, about twenty miles south of Jerusalem. . SUBJECT.—A Song of Praise. INTRODUCTORY. — The announcement made to Zacharias in our last lesson was received b,y him with iucredulous surprise, but his unbelief was not greater than Abraham's (Gen. xv: 8). The angel then revealed himself to Zacharias as Gabriel, the revealer of God's messages of grace to men, aud, as a punishment for his incredulity and a sign to help his unbelief, deprived him of speech until John should be born. The people marvelled that Zacharias remained so long in the temple, where he ord...

January 2,1890. gifting*. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. The Rev. A. C. Dixon, of Baltimore, in a sermon on the Philipian jailor, published in the Baltimore Baptist ot last week, emphasizes the kind and degree •of faith which justifies and saves. "The Lord Jesus Christ," he says, "is a full redeemer. Let us ■ot separate Savior from Lord, or Lord from Savior. To trust Jesus for salvation while we refuse to obey him as Lord is a delusiofi. To take him as Ruler while we refuse to accept him as Savior from our sins is equally a delusion. We should not honor his crown while we despise his cross, nor exalt his cross while we forget his crown. Salvation is believing on the whole Christ. ■* * * Believing Christ in the sense that we have confidence in the fact of his existence and his genecal excellence amounts to no more than such an attitude of mind toward Washington or Napoleon. 1 believe the main fact of history about Washington, but at this moment I am. not conscious of depending on Washington for a...

6 CM-BiilDg Id Lane Settlement BY MRS. GREATFAITH. v Chapteu VI. The talk on the porch had belated Mrs. Billings'evening work. She must go to the spring-house, but when her errands were done she sat down beside it to think out a solution of this new problem—how to lift all her own burdensand help to carry Mary's. Presently she heard voices, and looking down the stream saw two persons cross the little footbridge and stand still talking on the end. One >f the voicps was Miranda's. While they talked Miranda Was slowly walking back across the bridge, her comE anion coming up aud holding er in talk at each pause. At the other end he left her and recrossed alone, but turned at the ascent of the path au4 called her name: She answered not, buf stood looking down the stream. Again he crossed the stream to her. There was something like entreaty'in the tones of his voice, but his words were inaudible. And now Miranda came back with him, her arm within his. A great fear had seized Mr...

January 2,1890. £auttljj Circle Ready to Begin. Every fall a new army of boys enter the business world. Each boy will feel sure that he is goiug to make a grand success, and if he does not feel 'that way he is not much of a boy. A great many boys fail, not because they have not ability, but because they want to begin at the top; they are not willing to shovel, but want to make their way in cushioned chairs. The meu who fill cushioned chairs with the greatest dignity are those who never hesitated to shovel if shovelling helped to make a path upward. The boy who wants the freedom and ease of the head of his firm will find plenty of freedom in life, but no ease. His freedom will consist in walking about trying to find a new position. The boy who is willing to be a boy and do a boy's part in the world, keeping eyes and ears open for opportunities to learn every detail of the business in which he is engaged, will find his chance to step higher every year. Do not fear to ask questions. If...

8 WEST VIRGINIA. Cold Stream, December 23,1889.—At my last appointment at Ebenezer, on the third Lord's-day of this month, a young man made the good confession, and in the evening of the .same day I baptized a lady at Rock Enon Springs. On Monday night after the third Lord'sday I commenced a meeting at Rockdale School-house and continued it till Friday sight, resulting in three additions. I preached at Sandy Ridge Saturday night and yesterday (Sunday). On Saturday night I organized a Ladies' Aid Society with thirteen members. Before my next appointment there new lamps and reflectors will be put in the church. We desire to make several other improvements during the year. I will go to Maysville Wednesday to hold a protracted meeting. Bro. J. A. Spencer is booked to begin a protracted meeting at Ebenezer on Monday night, January th« 13th.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. * In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. In a recent speech upon The Church and its Attitude to Social Reforms" at Chicago, the Rev. J 0 S. Huntingdon, of New York, said some things wise and otherwise It seems as though the reverend gentleman tried to earn a little cheap notoriety by saying cutting things at the expense of the Church. "It was a sad comment upon the Church, said he "that the great mass of humanity, though they had no special hatred of the Church, yet felt that it was a thing apart from them." Why does the comment apply only to the Church I Why not to humanity ? In fact, does it not apply to humanity rather than the Church? Apply this kind of talk to other phases of religion and it looks absurd. For instance, "It is a sad comment upon God that the great mass of humanity, though they have no special hatred of God, yet feel that he is a being apart from them." The wrong is not on God's part, but upon men's. So in the case of the Church. Men ...

2 Calling: on the Name or the Lord. (Acts 11: 21.) UY W. o. MOOHIC. Salvation is ascribed to different agencies: 1. God saves. "For God so loved the world that .he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believetli in him should not perish, but have eternal life." 2. Christ saves. He "gave himself for us, that be might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a people for his own possession, zealous of good works." 3. The Word saves. "Wherefore putting away all filtbiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with meekness the implanted word which is able to save your souls." 4. Faith saves. "He that believeth on the Son hath eternal life; but he that obeyeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him." 5. Obedience saves. "He became unto all them that obey him the author of eternal salvation." 6. Calling on the name of the Lord saves. "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Some may be disposed to magnify one or more...

INTERVENING EVENTS.—After a sojourn of three months with Elizabeth, Mary returned to her own home Since the announcement made to Zaahanas, while offering the incense in the temple, he had been dumb, and perhaps blind as a punishment of his unbelief. In due time the promised son was born, and there was great rejoicing among the friends and relations of the parents, the birth of a son being among Orientals the cause of exceeding great joy. When the child was eight days old they came to circumcise him, as was enjoined upon all the descendants of Abraham xvn: 12) This was also the time when the name was given, and the child was named Zacharias, after the name.of his father, but the mother answered, Not so, but he shall be calle...

6 A Sensational Sermon. [The following sermon appeared in the St. Louis Republic of December Bth]: No mail hath seen God at an'y time. The only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (John i: 18.) Jesus of Nazareth, here called "the only begotten Son" and represented as .now "in the bosom of the Father," was "a teacher come from God." His mission to earth was stated by himself when he said to Pilate: "To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth." The accomplishment of this high mission included as its main feature the revelation of Him who is the source and centre of all truth, and the historian, in the passage read, points to Christ as such a revelation. He represents Jesus as bringing to men the knowledge of the true God, concerning whom the world was ignorant. He says: "No man hath seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the father, he hath declared him." ...

January 9,1890. fCliurcli-Building In Lane Settlement. BY MBS. GREATFAITH. Chapter VII. "Mother," said liobbie when thev came from school the first day of Mary's stay, "we forgot Marv Mai'-ks is here. It was so strange to wake up and find Miranda here so early in the morning;. That must have made us forget to tell the children at school." „ "Forget it also to-morrow, Mrs. Billings said, half-inclined to smile. "Why, that would be q leer, too. To try to forget because you ask me to would keep me all the time remembering." Mrs. Billings now explained: "You see, Robbie, the children would all wish to come and see the babv, you know, and Mary is too ill and your mother too busy. Will you remember to say nothing about it?" "Yes, mother; but what will you do if some one should come ?" "That I must risk, Robbie; but I hope Mary will be well before any one comes." The Elder (and his congregation also, let it be said to their credit) punctually observed "the appointment." This time he came i...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. Sir John Lubbock, speaking in London recently, spoke truly when he said that he doubted if the free libraries cost the taxpayers anything in the end, for alfbut a fraction of the crime of the country arose from ignorance and drink. Truly there is an antidote to the poison of ignorance and drink in a libi ary. There is a perennial delight in reading; it never palls on the taste. " The man through his books has an entry into the best society of the world, and the self-respect consequent upon this will keep him from degrading vices. Poor though we be, we can take lessons in philosophy from Bacon, listen to the thunder of Milton's poetry, see humanitv well-drawn by Shakpeaie. We can analyze human hearts with Eliot, smile at the idiosyncracies pictured by Dickens, and rage against abuses with lleade. We can chant the linked sweetness of Tennyson, and enjoy the abrupt rhetoric and reason of Carlyle. We can follow the mast...

2 "The 'Word Behind Thee." (Isa. xxjc: ax.) IJY E. h. POWEM.. "There's a new foot on «tie floor, my friend, And a new lace at the door, my friend. A new face at the door " Soon the friend from whose hand we have received alike gladness and sadness; who has each day spokeu to us a message of wisdom, silently but unmistakably; who has been our teacher, our counsellor, and the faithful recorder of all onr deeds, will be laid away till the judgment trump shall call him forth to speak out the hidden and secret things locked up in his bosom. The farewell will soon be said. We meet no more till the great white throne is set and the books are opened. Charles Lamb, in one oi his delightful essays, affirms: "No oue ever regarded the first of January with indifference. It is that Irom which all date their time and count upon what is left.
