Never mind if the shoes Are muddy and wet and all that; Never mind if your clothe* have been terribly torn, Aud you've ruiued your pretty new hat; Go in like a mau, and tell mother the truth, Like a brave little lad, and you'll see How hHppy a boy, who confesses h fault, And is truthful and honest, can lie. —Selected.

8 $Un»& from states* VIRCINIA. Warsaw, Jaouary 18, 1890.—When I came to this fluid a year ago these churches were in a critical condition, having had no preaching except what they got once or twice a year from an evangelist. Many of them, despairing of ever having any one to lead them and give them spiritual food, had withdrawn and united with other congregations, while those who remained had become lukewarm. The progress has excepded our expectations. During the year i preached in all 103 times; though only seventy-six of that number in this Sold. The additions were as follows >Epliesus, 19; Laurel Brook, 3; Philippi, 2; Northumberland Mission, 7. Total, 31. Thecontributionsfor the year were more than double the amounts raised before, and the churches are in a more promising condition than they have been for ten yfcars. Thecburch buildings are being improved and the members are taking on new hope and courage. I expect to remain here until Septembe Ist, ufter ...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY «. T. SMART. Within a few days the New "York Supreme Court grantei a stay of proceedings in the case of the anarchist, Johann Most. We thus see the paradoxical sight of an anarchist, who defies and tries to destroy all law, taking advantage of the law's technicalities in order to escape punish ment. If Most were sincere he would not attempt such things. That such an arch-criminal is permitted thus to benefit himself is a shame. This liberty, which is illiberal, grows out of the sentiment that the criminal must have every possibility of escape opened to him, or that all legal hair-splitting shall be performed with a view to his interests. Have not law-abiding citizens some interests, too? Are all benefits of quibbles to tco to the side of the sinner? "The rats eat the cane, the innocent lizard dies for it," is a wise observation of the Haytians. Criminals too often press out the sweets of law, and innocent citizens have to munch ...

2 Editor Missionary Weekly: Your request to favor you with an article for the Missionary, having for its object the determination of what may be considered standards of truth, whether objective or subjective, and the further question, whether the human soul, with all its limitations of power and of knowlege, can be considered as the final arbiter of what should be held as true, was received some days ago. We might reasonably assume that these, and some kindred questions to which you referred in connection with them, were deemed important in reference to the views recently advanced, though not very definitely, by Bro. Cave in his St. Louis sermon, and the unfavorable comments they ha veelicited. Let me premise, first, that whatever be any man's views, and more especially if he is known to be a man of the very purest character and life, I should feel that I was not only derelict in Christian charity, but even in ordinary judicial fairness, if from any personal desire to show myself a ...

February, 6 1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. S. LONG. Bro. B. B. Tyler's "New York Letter," in the* Standard of January 25th, is a practical sermon on a popular and interesting subject. His text is found in the October number of the Church Review and Ecclesiastical Register, an organ of the Protestant Episcopal church. The author ofthe text is John Henry Hopkins, D. D., a shining light in the Episcopal church, and it is as follows: "Of all the various bodies of Christendom, the Angelican Communion is the only one which, in the desire for reunion, has testified its willingness to give up any thing to recover tne lost jewel of visible unity. It is the only one which has formulated any terms which it is willing to accept, short of 'unconditional surrender.' * * No other body of Christians has, as yet, done anything of the sort." # Bro. Tyler stirs up Dr. Hopkins' mind by way of remembrance, as he seems to have forgotten the efforts of the Disciples in this direction. If we remember aright a re...

6 Cknrch-Bnilni In Lane Settlement. BY MRS. GREATFAITH. Ohapteh XI. Mr. Turney's share in Mrs. Billings' afflictions seemed not to have ended. They were returning from the new grave when a sudden shower came up. Stopping at the first house for shelter, Miranda and Mrs. Billings, with the children, were sent in while the Deacon drove under a shed. Down dashed the rain, heavier 9 became the cloud that darkened the already dark room. Doors and windows were closed to keep out the rain, and Mrs. Billings perceived the odor of medicines among those that pervaded the atmosphere. In the farther corner was a bed, two little children lying in it. They had scarlet fever. Out through the rain went Mrs. Billings to beg the Deacon to proceed, and by the time she had convinced him of the danger, the shower had somewhat abated and they went on. How desolate seemed the homecoming. Her heart was torn and bleeding. Cheery little Robert was grave and sorrowful. Poor little Nellie—dazed and frightened, ...

Better the love of a gentle heart than beauty's favor proud; Better the rose's living seed than roses in a crowd. Better to love in loneliness than to bask in love all day; Better the fotintain in the heart than the fountian by the way. Better be fed by a mother's baud than eat alone at will; Better to trust in God than say, "My goods my storehouse fill." Better to be a little wise than in knowledge to abound; Better to teach a child than toil to fill perfection's round.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. in Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. The members of our national Executive appear of late to have had numerous afflictions. The Foreign Secretary scarcely has recovered from the shock consequent upon the lose of his son, when he loses a daughter. Immediately upon this Washington is stunned by the tragedy of the death by burning of the wife and daughter of Secretary Tracy. Few men are so heavily laden as the sick Secretary in his present trouble. The sympathy of a kind-heartei people should go out to him in this time of sore need. Such accidents show the bitterness of all human position. Its very greatness only seems to add to the pain. There are aching hearts underneath broad-cloth bosoms, and troubled minds encased in regal crowns. Human ambition, greatness, and glory are quite fleeting, but human pain and sorrow are only too real and lasting. The one is only transient, the other long as life itself. Here we have no continuing city; all things teach u...

2 Our Relation to Missions. BY N. M. We have entered upon the last decade of the nineteenth century. This is pre-eminently the missionary century of the Christian era. We have seen great things accomplished, but we confidently expected to see greater things. It is not extravagant to devoutly hope that the coming century will dawn upon a world evangelized. God is working fast in our time. A nation shall be born in a day. The harvest of the nations is ripe, and he that reapeth receiveth wages and gathereth fruit unto eternal life. Along with , this unparalleled activity in Christian missions there has grown with the century the movement towards Christian unity. The rise and progress of the Disciples of Christ is worthy to be regarded as one of the most important religious events of the century. If not now, it shall yet come to be considered in this light, when its true character and its ultimate end shall be understood. I do not set this down in any spirit of boasting or vainglory. We...

GOLDEN TEXT.—In that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted.—Ueb. ii; 18. TlME.—About January 27; immediately after his baptism. PLACE —A wilderness, but what wilderness is unknown. PARALLEL ACCOUNTS.-Matt. iv: 1-11; Mark i: 12-13. INTRODUCTION.— There are three accounts of the temptation of our Lord in the wilderness. Mark merely mentions the fact, adding a single incident not mentioned by the other two, viz: that in the wilderness where the temptation took place there were wild beasts. Matthew and Luke give the fullest details, Luke's account being rather fuller than Matthew's. The order of the three temptations in Matthew differs from that of Luke. This is not material to the case. Matthew's order seems the most likely as it is the most natural. Hitherto the life of Jesus had been quiet and ret...

February 13,1890. Sittings. BY CHAB. S. LONG. Rev. Dr. Vincent, professor in the Union Theological Seminary, New York, is outspoken in favor of the revision of the Westminster Confession of Faith. The Doctor, in his recent address before the New York Presbytery, made use of the following vigorous language: "When a church ignores and condemns its own standards it is time to scrutinize the standards and the church. The Confession is not adapted to the conditions of this age. God's word is for all time; creeds for the age in which they are formulated. It is a mistake to call the Westminster divines giants: it implies degeneracy in us. The Scripture is better understood to-day than it was then. It is well to pay respect to Augustine, Calvin, and the Westminster divines, but why should we take a rigid faith from their dead hands? CLAY IN THE POTTER'S HANDS. "I am not content that God, by the arbitrary decree of his will, should condemn me to eternal torment. Paul tells me I have no right...

6_ The Silent Hour. BY ELIZA H. MORTON. A little rest in the twlight After my work is done, A little time with the Master, At Betting of the sun. The day has been one of trial, Of failure oft and tears; But Jesus knows all my weakness, He knows my doubts and fears. All sordid thoughts I can banish, And let my spirit fly Above the earth and its sorrow To God's white throne on high. The door of a place of refuge, A place of quiet rest, Is near, and my soul is longing To find that portal blest. I come with my heavy burdens, I come with all my sin, I knock and the door swings open, And Jesus lets me in. My sin departs, and my trouble Is lot-t in blissful calm, This quiet hour with my Savior Has soothed my heart like balm. CM-Biiililiii£ In Lane Settlement. BY MRS. GREATFAITH. Chapter XII.

February 13, IfWO. • Circle* Two Little Maids I Know. I know a little maiden, Whom I always see arrayed in Silks and ribbons, but she is a spoiled and petted little elf; For she never helps her mother, or her sister, or her brother, But, forgetting all around her, lives entirely for herself. So she simpers and she sighs, And she mopes and she cries, And knows not where the happy hours flee, Now, let me tell you privately, my darling little friends, She's as miserable as miserablecan be, And I fear she's not the little maid for me. But I know another little maiden, Whom I've seen arrayed in Silks and ribbons, but not always; she's a prudent little elf, And she always helps her mother, and her sister, and her brother, And lives for all around her, quite regardless of herself. So she laughs and she sings, And the hours on happy wings Shower gladness round her pathway as they flee. Now, need I tell you privately, my darling little friends, She's as happy as a little maid can be? This is...

8 Our Union Meetings. BY H. C. BOWEN. While I would be glad to 1-ead much more than I do from Bro. J. R. Tingle and others in North Carolina, I was eorry to see the following in (North Carolina Items: "The Union meetings everywhere, so far as 1 know, are doing but very little good. We meet, have one or two sermons, collect a few dollars, and £0 home to meet again the next fifth Lord's-day, and in many cases the money raised would not defray the expenses of the meeting." 1. The foregoing is hardly consistent ■with other items. In speaking of the Jones and Onslow Union, he says: "This Union, like most others, is only one in name." Towards the close of the paragraph he informs us, "The Jones and Onslow Union has appropriated fifteen dollars for a protracted meeting in New Berne. At the last meeting they also donated twenty-five dollars for building a new house of worship at Tuckahoe. This will enable the brethren at that place to build a house which they need." Bro. R. W. Stancill held...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. The system of trial by jury has come up for consideration. Customs and methods that have become hoary-locked with age are now ruthlessly brought before the bar of public opinion, and if found lacking the kingdom over which they have held sway has to be given to another. A symposium on the subject of trial by jury has been held in a leading New York paper, and the mean of opinion is tnat the system needs amendment. If only the right kind of men could be impanelled things might be better, but there are too many loopholds of escape for those whose time is precious. The system, which is breath of the nostrils in free countries, is unfortunately left in the hands of men whose chief business is to do nothing, and to know as much. More stringent laws on the subject of jurors' absences Bhould be framed, and only the most valid of reasons should be allowed. The very men who could adminter justice best are not anxious or will...

, 2 High License or Prohibi-tion-Which? BY PRESIDENT OF MILLIGAN COLLEGE. [ Professor Hopwood's article is "chiefly a summary." As the papers called for were limited to one thousand wordseach, a lengthy discussion of the question by any one writer was cut off. Bro. Hopwood's contribution contained upwards of two thousand words; but we have, by his permission and under his direction, omitted the first part, and herewith publish the remaining portion.—Ed. M. W.] Prohibition commends itself in principle to the best judgment and highest conscience of the race. It means prohibit wrong. Nearly all classes of men everywhere say the whisky traffic is evil, and the world would be better without it. This makes prohibition the standard. In building character Jesus is the standard. There is a perfection in his life which the soul of man loves and wants. Striving for anything lower will not call out his highest nature or all of his best powers; but the perfection of the model is a constant uplif...
