January 16,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. In the Missionary of last week T wrote of the difference in the course pursued by Dr Dowling, of Cleveland, Ohio, and Bro. R. C Cave, of St. Louis, and in so doimr I used language that might be regarded as casting a reflection upon the motives of the latter. Nothing, however, said by me was intended as a reflection upon his honesty and motives, but rather upon what I considered his mistaken policy. Being personally acquainted with Brother Cave, and knowing him to be a man of high honor and integrity, and of pure life, I would not think of questioning his motive, however much I may feel constrained to differ from him in the views he advocates, and however much I may regard those views as being subversive of the interests of our brotherhood in its efforts to restore Erimitive Christianity. For rother Cave personally I have the most sincere respect, and I cherish the hope that he may yet swing from his present extreme back to the safe moorin...

6 (M-BDiMiii li Lane Settlement BY MKS. ({RKATKAITH. Chahtkh Vfll. A woman »>' more than ordi nary culture, Mrs. Billings had borne patiently the shocks of great calamities and constant wearing of daily trials and petty annoyances. At tirst these people called her "'proud." "stuck up." She had to make her WHy against unjust suspicion and rude criticism. When, later, rude criticism gave way to rude kindness, the hour had little for her but the "peaceof Him that overcomet h." But the new relation between Dick and Miranda was eminently satisfactory; and, though determined not to be tirst to break a truce, they were yet com pa rati vely slow to present their theory of universal brotherhood. It met, of course, with the usual fate of such high undertakings—■scoffs, oppositions, treachery. Yet the leaven was slowly working, and in time it was discovered that Dick could run, climb, swim, ride, play ball, wrestle singlehanded with the best of them. The oddity of his clothes, the c...

Kept flitting up and down the aisle; Now here, now there, from seat to seat, Danced merrily the little feet: 4 The sunny face now pressed the pane, Now called the sunshine back again. All loved her as from place to place She fluttered with a bird like grace; And now with this one, now with that, Stopped to exchange a, stnile or chat. So the long journey we beguilded: Her blue eyes could so friendly be, Nobody knew whose treasure she. But suddenly from sunlight plain Into a tunnel rushed the truin. Ah! then we knew whose arms should The little one with locks of gold. "Papa! papa I" she trembling c"ied, And groping, sought her father's side; As out into the the day we pressed, Her head lay on her father's breast.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. -Written Sermon*. Should you, my friend, the important question ask, With or without my papers should I preach? My answer hear and weigh—Your sermons write From end to end; and every thought invest With full expression, such as best may suit Its nature and its use, and then pronounce As much as your remembrance can retain. Bather read every sentence, word for word, Than wander in a desultory strain— A chaos, dark, irregular, and wild— Where the Bame thought and language ott revolves, And re-revolves, to tire sagacious minds, However loved the momentary praise Of ignorance and empty fervors charmed. But never to your notes be so enslaved As to repress someinstantaneous thought That may like lightning dart upon the soul, And blaze in strength and majesty divine. —Gibbons, Christian Minister. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. The imperious action of the British government in the present dispute with Portugal is due to causes outside Downing street rath...

2 An Open Letter. [The following letter is written in reply to a communication frofri a regular attendant upon the meetings at the First Christian church, Louisville, Ky. It is given for publication in the hope that it may be helpful to others who are similarly troubled.] Dear Friend— I am glad that my recent sermon on the "Cup of Bitterness" gaveyou pleasure, and was deemed by you worthy of commendation. It is not at all surprising that difficulties should be suggested to your mind in seeking to reconcile the sorrows of life with the law of love. To harmonize them has been the effort of earnest souls since sin came into the world, and death through sin. One of the most beautiful poems in our language—Tennyson's "In Memo*iam"—is but an earnest endeavor to bring into accord the cry of a pierced heart and the sublime utterance: "God is love." That you have thought much and seriously on this question I must believe, since you affirm: "I doubtless would have been a Christian years ago h...

January 23,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAS. 8. LONG. Bro. o. G. Hertzog, of Rochester, N. Y., is writing a series of letters in the Apostolic Guide, addressed to Dr. Eaton, editor of the Western Recorder (Baptist). The Doctor is not right sure he understands Bro. Hertzog "Some of the sentences," he says, "seem thoroughly evangelical, and then other sentences smack strongly of ritualism.'' He asks brother Hertzog to "tell us squarely whether he believes baptism is a condition of forgiveness." That seems to be about the way our Lord and his apostles understood the matter if their recorded utterances are to betaken as an indication of their views. Our .Lord said, 4 Except a man be boru of the water and of the spirit he cannot enter into tne kingdom of God." In the commission he said, "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." Peter, laboring under that same commission and speaking as the Spirit gave him utterance, said, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Chr...

6 Cteh-Bnilni In Lane Settlement. BY MRS. GREATFAITH. CHAfIPEU IX. Another abundant harvest was hanging in heavy heads in the Deacon's wheat-field. The Deacon's head was hanging, too, with a harvest of full-grown recollections. He had beeu watching how the light breeze bore ripple after ripple, wave after wave of gleaming gold and green over the sloping field and up to where, on the hilltop, it touched heaven, and there each ripple of Sjold and green ended only to be ollowed by another. In harmony with the rippling and waving, and floating lightly on the green and golden sea, heard only by an inner sense, a soft, tender music out of heaven seemed to chant and multiply the words, "Lay upyourtreasure in heaven," and at last it spoke almost as an audible voice in his ear. He roused to think of the unprofitable Sundays a house of worship might have gathered up and built into the better lives of a more intelligent community around him; and then, with a conflict of desires, of a swelling ...

She has read most of the best books, not mere trash. She can mend and make, and bake and brew. As she has no decided talent for music or painting, she concluded to loose no time over them." I overheard this dialogue at an afternoon tea; later on I had a chat with the brother and sister andltliink some of you may be interested in what 1 heard. Kate, like many other girls, found her time more and more occupied assheneared seventeen. She took music lessons, and expected to practice at least an hour a day. Then "all the girls" took drawing, and she began. From early to late she studied, recited or practiced. She heard of a book she longed to read, but there was no time. Her mother was not strong, and needed efficient help in the house, but Kate had not a moment, for when not actually studying or practicing...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. in Two Hemispneres. BV G. T. SMART. The Prussian Diet was opened recently, and the speech of the Emperor William contained a brief survey of the state of the empire. The foreign relations are good in every quarter, and the talk ot war, so often heard in the springtime, bids fair this vear to be in abeyance. The question of the government acquiring private railroads was brought up, and a bill was intro duced looking to that end and empowering an extension of the State system. State railroads in Germany are not exactly what State railways in the United States would be. Yet, although they are State property chiefly on account of their military qualification, they are not so burdensome to the people in the way our monopolies of motion are. The German government ,is a paternal government; but it is a stern parent—an exactor of the utter jat>st farthing. To rule is its aim, and it fulfills its mission at all risks. So far the rule of iron has bee...

B] Si N • 2 Christian Unity and Christian Missions. BY NEIL MACLEOD. In the December number of the Missionary Re view is an excellent pafier by Rev. J. L. Russell on the above topic. He repeats the Erayer of Jesus for them who elieve on him: "That they all may be one; .... that the world may believe that thou hast sent me." and says: "Here Christian unity is the condition necessary to the consummation of Christian missions. Theworld's faith in Christ, the Son of God, is the object and end of Christian missions. That end must come by the way of Christian unity. Is not this a fair and reasonable construction of Christ's words?" He reviews the progress of Christian missions and ot Christian unity dtjring this missionary century. He shows how "these two ureat conceptions are not merely parallel developments in time," but that "each seems to be cause and each effect of the other," and that "they grow in the same soil and are fostered by the same influences." But from this paper, which is...

January 30,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. Dr Thomas A. Hoyt, pastor of one of the leading Presbyterian churches in Philadelphia, recently preached a%ermon on -Romanism and Protestantism " in the course of which he niadesome startling statements. The Doctor is represented as saving that "we are on the eve of the greatest era of theological doctrinal discussion that the world has ever seen." He says the controversy between Romanism and Protestantism is not one of Protestant seeking, but that Romanists have thrown down the gauntlet, and that there is no alternative except to take it up. Had they been content to go on quietly in their sphere we would not have gone out of our way to assail them. That would be unlike Rome, who is aggressive or. she is nothing; she may not always come out openly, and, indeed, does not uutil she feels sure of her position, but works unceasiugly and untiringly for the accomplishment of her purposes. The Doctor states the points of difference between Roman...
