March 6,1890. family ©trcU. A Lesson for the Boys. BY SYDNEY DAYBE. "Can't we have out the boat to-day, papa?" asked Harry. "No; the boat is not ready. The paint is not dry." "Can we to-day?" he asked the next day. "No, not for several dayß, I think." "Dear me," said Tom. "It's dreadfully hard to wait so long." "You have the whole summer before you for boating," said papa. "Yes, but I want to go now. Can we go to-morrow?" "No; I will let you know when you can go. These spring winds are too high. The lake gets very rough." "Where's papa?" the boys asked the next evening, when he did not come out to the lakeside cottage at the usual time. "I have just had a message from him, said mamma. "He has been called away from home for a few days." "How provoking," said Tom, as the two went down to the boat-house. "See," said Harry, "the paint's as dry as an old bone. We might take her out just as well as not." The boys had been allowed to row about near home by themselves last summer. They look...

8 North Carolina 'Work. Since last report received for State missions, quarterly payment, Rountree's, $5; the total amount received during February was 918.55, just about on»flfth as much as the amount paid out. The second quarterly paymbnt will be due April Ist. We hope all the churches will raise the sum requested of each and forward it promptly, so that the work may beincreased. We notice with pleasurejthe signs of prosperity at Rountree's church. They have increased the salary of the pastor. "All the machinery is at work; crowded houses at every meeting; we are booming I" We would be glad to know that all the churches are prospering. Nothing will bring about such a result sooner than concert of action. We can and should help each other in our work. How many will do this? How many are hindering others? What do you think of the following? "Last Saturday I walked fifteen miles; carried a bottle of wine for communion; preached two sermons, and walked home. The brethren made me up f ...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. The United States has the noblest river-tiow of any nation, its length exceeds by thousands of miles the whole river-flow of Europe. The grand waterways of this country exercise a great power in its development. If De Soto or Marquette could only sail down the Mississippi now, what a transformation they would see! Cities and fertile lands, where once there was only a wild wilderness filled with dusky savages. 'Tis true that the savages have not all disappeared, for all great waterways attract a roving and reckless population, but the savages are a product of modern times, and are not aboriginal. Not blessed with many secure havens upon the coast, we have this deficiency made up in the length and breadth of our rivers. They are now great arteries of our national life. If we only had more rivers running laterally we might be able to put a greater check on railroad greed, but thankful we are for what we have. All this ...

2 Consistency. BY It. W. VANHOOK. "Consistency, thou artafewel." So some one wrote, and we might add that it is a very valuable one, not only intrinsically, but because of its rarity. God has always been consistent. Jesus the Christ has been, and is preeminently so. The Holy Spirit, being of God, could not be other than consistent, and as a consequence we could not expect anything else of the Scriptures, because they are God's Word. Then, for us to be the possessors of this valuable jewel we must take the Word of the Lord as our guide —our standard —in everything we do —in all our lives. We may be able to see the wrongs of others when we have greater. We should heed the Savior's exhortation: "Take the beam out of our own eye that we may see clearly how to take the mote out of others' eyes." If we watch very closely we may find ourselves accusing others of being wrong simply because they do not agree with us. There is one way that is right, and all others are wrong. Because others di...

March 13,1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. S. LONG. Phillips Brooks, the eminent Episcopalian preacher of Boston, has been delivering a series of noonday sermons in Trinity church, N. Y. His audiences were composed of the business men of Gothpm,and his sermons were of an intensely practical nature. During his stay in New York he was interviewed by one of the irrepressible correspondents of the Philadelphia Fivss. During the interview he was asked by the reporter whether he had noticed tne tendency towar i the revision of creeds, and whether he thought this tendency was due to the intellectual activity of the times? He said there was no doubt of that, and that the same tendency which had been manifested in the Presbyterian church of late was also manifest in the recent convention of the Episcopal church. This move toward revision, he thinks, is the reflex of this intellectual agitation, and is the protest of men against bondage to mere phraseology and philosophical deduction. But here is an e...

6 Another Lesson from tbe Pew. Dear Pulpit,—The reason for belonging to a particular church, as given by many members, is that they like the preacher. This is not only insufficient, but it is exceedingly unfortunate. Who is to blame for it? People are honest and frank in their preferences, and affectionate in their protestations. Like a hiirror, they neither exaggerate nor detract from the real situation. Personal influence is a large factor in religious work. It is right to be followers of men, as they are of Christ, but to follow the minister for his own sweet sake is creditable neither to him nor to the person who thus lavishes his affections. There are many other motives to draw people into the church, such as social standing, wealth, popularity, excitement, sensation, etc., aud Christ's cause will be proportionately weak as these are unduly strong. They may enter into the question of proper church relations only as secondary considerations. When they are the master motives for ...

March 13,1800 Leona. BY JAMES G. CLARK. [Literary critics have pronounced the following poem unsurpassed by any other production of its class in our language:] Leona, the hour draws nigh, The hour we've wailed so long, For the angel to open a door through the sky, That my spirit may break from its prison and try Its voice in an infinite song. Just now, as the slumbers of night Came o'r me with peace giving breath, The curtain, half lifted, revealed to my sight Those windows which look on the kingdom of light That borders the river of death. And a vision fell solemn and sweet, Bringing gleams of a morning-lit land; I saw the white shore which the pale watOFB betlt And I heard the low lull as they broke at their feet, Who walked on the beautiful strand. And 1 wondered why the spirits could cling To their clay with a struggle and sigh, When life's purple autumn is better than spring, And the soul flies away, like a sparrow to sing In a climate where leaves never die. Leona, come close ...

8 Valley of Virginia Notes. BY J. D. HAMAKER. Again I feel called upon to record the death of an esteemed Disciple. On the morning of February 22d Sister Mollie S., wife of Bro. T. W. Rittenour, was called to her reward. Her home has lost a devoted wife and mother, and the church a most worthy member and an efficient worker. Our little baud feels it as a personal bereavement—a loss that cannot be easily repaired. Our hearts go out in sympathy to the stricken husbafid and four motherless children, who feel most sadly the loss of such a wife and mother. After appropriate services, attended by a large number of friends and relatives, we laid her to rest in the family burying ground at Strasburg. She awaits the resurrection of those who die in the Lord. We have no prevailing epidemic, and yet within sixty days we have had some twelve deaths in our churches,embracing Mt. Jackson, Edinburg, Woodstock, Fairview, Strasburg, and Walnut Spring. I had the unexpected pleasure of attending a mis...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. Servia looks upon Russia with more favor than Bulgaria seems to do. Bulgaria resents Russian interference, but Servia has just thanked Russia for _ her help in the late war. The ties of blood and religion are so close that, as M. Pascicssaid, "nothing wou]d ever separate them." Russia certainly did much for Servia, but she expected to gain somewhat herself. It is doubtful if the war resulted just to the Czar s liking, but the States in the Balkan peninsular are so divided that practically Turkey is powerless. Were it not for the jealousy of the other powers Constantinople would float the Russian flag. Russia will never gain Constantinople under its present style of government. The Golden Horn is meant for something better than an upholder of autocracy. New Rome, like the Eternal City, has been under a cloud for a long time. The pale crescent and sad stars of the Turks have never been sufficient to illuminate; hence ...

If you could Imagine j-ourself entirely ignorant of the Bible and its teachings, and also of the results of scientific investigation along lines parallel with Bible history, and if thus ignorant you could overlook some congress of tfae nations where representatives of every race had assembled, and you could see the superstructure of humanity, from the Hottentot and Digger Indian at the base to the Auglo-Saxon at the apex; and .you could see the variety of physical form, facial expression, stature, color, and habits; aud you could hear the speech of each, from the rude and barren dialects of barbarous tribes to the rich and plastic classics of the ancients, and the majestic languages of the moderns in civilized lands; and could read through the medium of the myriad tongues the almost infinite diversity and the sharp and serious antagonism of thought on almost everything relative to ...

March 20,1890. SlfMnffS- BY OHAB. 8. LONG. Cardinal Gibbons, of Baltimore, is delivering a series of Lenten sermons iu that city, and on the first Sunday in March he preached at the High Mass on the subject ol auricular confession. In his sermon the Cardinal attempted to answer some of the objections urged against sacramental confession, and to the first objection, that it is a human invention and notadivine institution, he otters the claim of the Catholic Church as an end to controversy. He claims that it is an institution dating from apostolic times; that it is spoken of by the Council ot Trent in the sixth century, and that it is practiced by the Greek Church, which separated from the Western Church in the ninth century, and by the Nestorians and other Christian bodies that have been separated from the Western Church since the fourth and fifth centuries. He claims that it was impossible for the practice of confession to have had its origin between apostolic times and the fourth c...

6 Gleanings. BY OLIVER. To come to Christ means to embrace his teachings in faith and practice. If a Democrat should come to the Republicans he would renounce the policy of the Democrats and take the position occupied by the Republicans on the questions of the day.. He could not have it said of him that he has come to t he Republicans as long as his talk and manner of life hinders or repu diates their doctrine. Those who come to Christ will deny themselves and place themselves under his authority. They will advocate what he commanded to be advocated. They will say: "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." They will not say : "He that believeth and is saved shall be baptized." Those who advocate the latter statement as truth have come not to Christ, but to those who wrest the Scriptures to the destruction of many. A brother preacher says that he does not believe in the society called the Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor. He says that if the church would do its"...

March 20,18*>0 <£he family ©ivcle. Jane Austen. The time has passed when budding geniuses like keats can be killed bv harshness, or, like Chatterton, * driven from the world through neglect. One of the faults of our own age is its encouragement ot literary mediocrity, and persons fit only to be called penny-a-liners submit with complacency to fulsome praise of their "works" trumpeted abroad by unwise personal friends. Of quite auother stamp was Jane Austen, the novelist, whom Tennyson pronounced " next to Shakspeare" in her power of copying human nature, and whom George Eliot called " the greatest artist that has ever written." During her life-time, so modest and unassuming was this gentle woman, that lew ot her readers knew eveu her name, and none of them, to speak broadly, knew more than that. She had the greatest dislike for playing the role of literary lion, and once, when her fame was fully established, wrote that she was "frightened" because a strange lad...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. in Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. BMAET. There is talk of and attempts at reform in all quarters. The country that is willing to let go all attempts at better things has let go the safety-ropes of progress. Satisfaction is not a safe political posture; dissatisfaction generally means improvement either directly or indirectly. Hence, the talk of various kinds of reform. There is a prevailing discontent with our methods and results political. Ballot reform, financial reform, social reform, religious reform, each crowd upon the other, and ask the attention of all men of thoughtfulness. The recent disclosures in New York add an impetus to the movement. It is sad indeed that the skirts of justice are not altogether clean, and that sometimes the criminals are not only the culprits in the dock, but those also who have them in charge. David D. Field thinks the panacea lor political corruption may be found in compulsory voting. That a large number of intelligent ci...

2 Studies In Sacred History. BY M k B. RYAN. THE TOWER OF BABEE ANB THE OEKKSIS OF NATIONS. (Concluded trow last week.) In the dispersion from Babel the descendants of each of the sons of Noah can be more or less distinctly traced in the light of the scriptural statement in Genesis, tenth chapter, and of modern scientific research. Beginning with Ham we can trace several nations as his offspring. And remember, now, that we are coming to consider nations and peoples, which meet us on every hand as we progress in the study of the Bible. The sons of Ham are named as Cush, Mizraim, Phut, and Canaan. Of three of these the descendants are named for several generations. Of the descendants of Phut there is no mention made. A part of this Hamitic race, it appears, remained in the old home territory, or very early returned to it after the Babel dispersion. It furnished the main material out of which the early Chaldean kingdom was formed, of which Nimrod, the grandson of Ham, was one of the ea...
