Nazareth, the home of Jesus' childhood and youth. 2. Capernaum. on the northwest shore of the sea of Galilee. Jesus thirty-one years old. John the Baptist in prison. SUBJECT.—A Gospel Sermon. INTERVENING EVENTS.—It was probably during the forty days and nights of solitude and fasting of Jesus in the wilderness, that the rulers at Jerusalem, alarmed at the news that came from the desert, sent priests and Levi tea, requiring John to tell them plainly who he was, and received the answer which marked him as the forerunner of the Messiah, as foretold by Isaiah (John i: 19-25; Isa. xl; 3). But presently this denial of his own Messiahship was followed by the emphatic words, "There standeth One among you whom ye...

February 20,1890. gifting*. BY CHAS. S. LONG. The Shepherd's Voice is a monthly Sunday-school periodical,edited by Bro. Calvin S. Blackwell, Augusta, Ga. The February number comes to us laden with good things, and will certainly prove of great benefit to Sunday-school workers. It not only contains the lessons for the month, but it also teaches the plan of salvation clearly and distinctly. The article on the second page, under the head of the "Gospel of Christ," is just such an article as should be put into the hands of all Sundayschool pupils; and, by the way, it is just such an article as should find a more frequent place in the columns of our weekly papers. We have been so busy of late years discussing questions relating to co-opera-tion, union, &c., that we have almost forgotten that theyoung need clear-cut teaching along the line followed by Bro. Blackwell's article on the "Gospel of Christ." The Shepherd's Voiceia published at the extremely low sum of fifty cents pe...

CM-Hliu In Lane Settlement. The funeral-train had dispersed their several ways, and Mr. Turney was Hearing the lane leading towards the deserted cabin. "Father," said Miranda, "Nellie and I will stop at the 'gap.'" (That was the rude stile through the high fence.) ""You need not wait. We will walk home." All the long day Nellie had been dry-eyed and 'silent, obeying touch and gesture of Miranda with passive readiness. The walk down the well-known fieldpath was a silent one. She looked in at the door when Miranda had opened it, and fled down to the spring, where Miranda could see her dabbling the thin hands in the flowing stream, bathing face and head. After a long absence she returned, running to her mother's bed and climbing upon it, and, clasping in her arms the pillow lying where last her mother's head had lain, buried her head in the other, and sobbed and cried till she was exhausted. Miranda was infinitely touched —distressed beyond measure; but she deemed it best to let grief ...

8 Nortli Carolina Work. I am sorry that I have nothing to report lor State missions this week. But this is only the second time it lias been the case since the Convention. An excellent record for the churches; much in advance of any previous year. If you have not secured the full amount asked of you for first quarter, send what you have. We want to place you on record. Bro. D. H. Petree, Germanton, N. C., writes: "Bro. Helsabeak is now at the Bible College at Lexington, Ky. Bro.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. One of the encouraging signs of the times is the fact that Salt Lake City is not in the hands of its former political rulers. The elect are at last in a minoiity, so far as politics go; and, seeing that Mormon politics and religion are the same thing, it is safe to think that the system of Joseph Smith is in a decline. So sure does the Brooklyn Eagle feel of the ultimate destruction of the Mormon church that it says: "In these circumstances the complete downfall of the Mormon church as a political institution cannot be much longer delayed." When it ceases its political control it will cease its religious hold. The loaves and fishes are the quest of its communicants, and not right and morality. That such a system should ever find any followers is only equalled in strangeness by the fact of its being allowed to obtain fertile tracts of land and complete political control over the same under such a government as that o...

2 Partakers of His Holiness. (Heb. xllt xo.) BY E. L. POWELL. There is one clause in our text which, like the noonday sun, when we attempt to lock straight into his clear-shining face, almost blinds us with its splendor. It is a sentence of Scripture whose meaning dawns upon you gralually, until at last when you stand in the presence of its full significance you seem to be surrounded by the blazing light from the throne. It brings before us in few words the essential holiness of God's character—that absolute purity of being, the contemplation of which bewilders the imagination and affirms the possibility, yea, the actual participation of sinful man in this Slorious attribute of his Maker. «et us read the text reverently, laying emphasis upon the clause which we have selected for our morning meditation: "Forthey [fathers of our flesh] chastened us after their own pleasure, but he [the Father of Spirits] for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness." I. That we may appre...

February 27,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. Bro. E. B. Bagby's letter in the Missionary of February 13th is a defense of Prof. Harper, of Yale College, against certain charges which have been published in some secular and religious papers, and noticed by me in a recent issue of .the Missionary. My authority for writing as 1 did was the Truth, a periodical published in Chicago. The editor of the Truth copied a letter first Sublished in the New York Triune, in which Dr. Harper's doctrinal teaching was sharply criticized. The Tribune letter was not written by a "crank" or by a woman who is "practicallv insane," but by a gentleman who is a member of a leading church of New Haven, and also a member of its official board. The editor of the Truth says: "It will be remembered that a letter appeared in the New York Tribune reflecting severely upon Prof. Harper's most erroneous And dangerous views of inspiration. This letter was printed in the October number of the Truth, with what seemed t...

Blow on blow the sculptor fashions Roughness into symmetry, Till the dark rock gleams with brightness In its new-born majesty. Touch by touch the picture groweth Into beauty, life, and light, Till a wondrous revelation Bursts upon the raptured sight. Stroke by stroke the clock a.ve ringeth Welcomes to eternity, Adding warning unto warning, To the heart in me and thee. Word by word the book is written With its tale of woe or weal, Till the throbbing thoughts like music Through the trembling spirit steal. Wave on wave the wild tide creepeth Farther on and up the shore, Till the stranded boats are floating Free and buoyant as of yore.

Febbuary 27,1890 family Circle* A Legend. I read a legend of a monk who painted In an old convent cell in days by gone, Pictures of martyrs and of virgins sainted, And the sweet Christ face with the crown of thorn. Poor danbs, not fit to be a chapel's treasureFull many a taunting word upon them fell; But the good abbot let him, for his pleasure, Adorn with them his solitary cell. One night the poor monk mused: "Could I but render Honor to Christ as other painters do — Were but my skill as great as is the tender Love that inspires me when his cross I view! "But no; 'tis vain I toil and strive in sorrow; What man so scorns, still less can he admire; My life's work is all valueless; to-morrow I'll cast my ill wrought pictures in the fire." He raised his eyes within his cell—O wonder I There stood a Visitor; thorn-crowned was he, And a sweet voice the silence rent asunder, "I'd scorn no work that's done for love of me." And round the walls the paintings shone resplendent With lights and...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. It may be expected that the late attempt of the Louisiana Lottery Company to gain a charter in North Dakota will lead to a more rapid legislation upon the subject. North Dakota did well to escape from the gilded snare. Better for the State to be pure, if poor, than to be rascally and rich—even better, though it has to mortgage its property so that it may keep its morals. It seems strange that a lottery company has means enough to influence politics to the extent shown in North Dakota; but it is a very wealthy concern, to judge by its receipts. It is estimated to have a daily income of $67,000; monthly, $2,025,000; year1y,!24,637,500. A truly princely income, but a pestilent way of getting it! The deluded dollars seut m to its treasury can never do the receivers real good, for ill-gotten gains must canker and rust; neither can it be expected that the few who receive prizes will find them beneficial, seeing they show ...

2 The Limit. BY F. WALDEN. To what extent may expedients not provided for in the Bible be used ? To give a proper answer to this question will cl<ear away the mists before the eyes of some good brethren. Not long since I received a letter from a brother, written in fine spirit, asking me for chapter and verse for organizing a missionary society in our State. He especially objected to an article in our constitution providing for life-members and life-directors as being without warrant in the Word of God. I noticed in one of our religious journals quite recently that some brother asks for chapter and verse for our Church Extension Board, and refuses to contribute to the funds of this society till his request is granted. That a certain amount of this cavilling grows out of an unwillingness to do anything calling for sacrifice is most true; but it is to be hoped that not all of it has its source in co vetousness,but in a misconception of the use of expedients. A very pertinen...

Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. —Luke v: 10. TlME.—April, A. D. 28; probably during the week previous to the last lesson, after Christ's rejection at Nazareth, and before his Sabbath in Capernaum, the subject of our last lesson. PLACE.—On the shores of the sea of Galilee, near Capernaum. PARALLEL ACCOUNTS.-Matt. iv: 18-22, and Mark i: 16-20. INTRODUCTION.—'There are difficulties in harmonizing the accounts given by Matt, iv, and Mark i, and Luke in this chapter, of the calling of the first four apostles. It has been supposed that there was more than one call; but it seems not possible that Christ should have called the same men twice under the same circumstances, and in substantially the same words, and that the same incidents should have occurred on both occasions. But there is really no inconsistency in the three accounts. M...

March 6,1890. Borne and Foreign Preacher**. Editors Missionary Weekly: 1 have long been a reader as well an earnest friend of your valuable paper and that, with my love for the godly and self-denying preachers of our brotherhood, is my only excuse for asking admittance to your columns for the purpose of expressing a very decided dissent from the narrow, and seemingly selfish views, that appeared in your editorial columns in your issue of February 20th. I refer to an article copied from the Apostolic Guide of the week before, and addressed "To the Churches of Virginia Destitute of Preaching," and followed by an editorial comment. I have no objecttion to appeals being addressed to churches destitute of preaching in our State or any other State, because I think all churches ought to be supplied with preaching, and that all good men who can preach ought to preach; but Ido object to the reflection cast upon our churches for employing preachers who do not happen to De "to the manor born."...

6 Onward! New occasions teach new duties; Time makes ancient good uncouth; They must upward still and onward, Who would keep abreast of truth. —R. Lowell. ' The Logic of Experience. by J. L. dahsie. Henry M. Stanley entered Africa in his search for Livingstone as an unbeliever. He came out the last time giving glory and honor to God. Why this change? Years of trial and struggle; his contact with the great missionary; the helplessness of the dark continent as it lies in sin and ignorance; the contrast betweeu it and Christian lands; his association with Christian people in his great work, and especially the logic of the events through which he passed, must have told mightily upon his convictions. He felt that he was hedged about by providence; that, although he vainly tried to pursue his own course and follow out his own plans, he was forced to go againt his own judgment into ways that led him at last out into safety, while if he had followed his intended course it must have ended in...
