March 27,1890. Sittings. BY CHAB. S. LONG. Mr. Grant Allen, in the Fortnightly Review o\ January, 1890, undertakes to enlighten the public concerning the origin ot God. He says: "I don't see, therefore, how we can avoid the obvious inference that Jehovah, the God of the Hebrews, the God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God who later became sublimated and etherealized into the God of Christianity, was in his uiigin nothing more or less than the ancestral fetish-stone of the people of Israel, however sculptured, and perhaps, in the very last resort of all, the monumental pillar of some early Semitic sheik or chief." If Mr. Allen's opinions are true, and he proves his case, we might as well shut up the book we call the Bible. This learned writer states it all here in a single paragraph. As Andrew Lang says in the Contemporary Review: "You begin in the very first rfesort of all with a monumental pillar of a Semitic sheik, or, rather, you don't, after all, begin*with that, but w...

6 Hymn for Sunday-School. BY R. 0. P. Heavenly Father, wilt thou listen While our songs to thee we raise? Moved by thy divine compassion We have come with prayer and praise. Guide us by tby Holy Spirit, Feed us with thy living Word, Send us with thy blessed tidings Unto those who never heard. Living, dying, did the Savior Love and humbly do thy will; We like him thy name would honor, All thy holy law tulflll. Help us in each dark temptation, Let us ne'er thy name deny While we hear him thro' the tempest, Saying, "Fear not; it is L" Jesus knew our deepest longing?, l?o to live as pleaseth thee, When he said of little children, "Suffer them to come to me." Let it be our joy to follow Thy beloved only Son, Till we gather in the kingdom His obedience hath won. Observance of the Lord'sDay. [Abstract of a sermou by B. 13.

March 27,18°0 &he family Mending With Pins. —"Oh, that's nothing," said a young woman, "I'll put a pin in. I can't stop to mend it now.' It was a hole in her pocket that Helen Russell mended that morning with a pin. Several days passed, and she forgot the circumstance. "Pinning it up" was one of Helen's favorite makeshifts. "I hate to mend," she would «ay, "and, after all, pins will do. They have to do, anyway." Even holes in her stockings were caught together in this fashion, and a button off her glove was replaced by the same shiftless expedient. It was not that she lacked time to use needle and thread, but simply that she had fallen into a lazy habit. Helen Russell was a schoolteacher, and a few days after pinning up the hole in her pocket she went to the town treasurer and drew sixty dollars, her earnings for ten weeks' teaching. She put the money into her purse, and the purse into her pocket. Then she made a lew calls, and went into the post-office. As she was desce...

8 Slew# front QtaU*. VIRGINIA. Radford, March 17, 1890.—Our work moves gradually on. Last week we were ousted from the old Presbyterian church in which we had been meeting. We had not received any notice, and on going, dawn to prayer-meeting found the house torn up inside. The parties owning this property agreed to let us use it, but to give us due notice when they would want it. No notice, however, was given, and we submitted. This morning I met the owner on the street and asked an explanation. He said he had forgotten. Perceiving that he felt the sting of the arraignment we smoothed it over and passed on. Since then we have secured the Mayor's Hall, which is neat, comfortable, and centrally located. We will meet here in future. We received to-day a nice silver communion service from the Bell Spring church. Thanks, dear brethren. Have sent for plans for our church. W. J. Cocke. » * « Receipts for Radford Churcii.—Since last report we have received the following: B. F. Ammen, Salem,...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres* BY G. T. SMART. It will be remembered that on March 6th a serious accident took place on the Lake Shore «nd Michigan Southern railroad, in which six persons were killed and twenty-one injured. The board of railroad commissioners has just completed its investigations and handed in its decision upon the case. The board finds the conductor and engineer to be responsible on account of bad judgment and carelessness. It also condemns the couplers used on the train as being insecure. It also condemns the reticence of the railroad company in not ' giving information in the followtag terms: Great complaint has been made on account of the officials of this railroad and of other railroad companies in accidents, refusing all information to the press The board recognizes the reasons for the indisposition of a railroad company to have the facts and circumstances in detail of an accident hurriedly given to the press bv newspaper reporters before ...

2 The Fathers, Where are They? We are reiniuded in the death of that reverend man, Robert Y. Henley, of the great changes that have come to the churches in Tidewater Virginia in a score of years. The patriarchs who led the hosts of Israel in that section of the State twenty rears ago have all passed over the river. Others have come to the front to take their places. God buries his workmen, but carries on his work. The fathers fall in the ranks, the prophets do not live forever, but the word spoken by the prophets and the work done by the fathers abide with us. The writer's first remembrance of a Tidewater convention goes back to that at Mathews Courthouse in the summer of 1806. Dr. Hopson was thel-e, and Dr. Bullard was for the first time, I believe, introduced to the Tidewater churches. One of the Lipscombs from Tennessee was there. R. Y. Henley, Peter Ainslie, and ' Muscoe Garnett were the leaders in discussions, and discussions were plenty. Bro. Christopher Brown had his oft-repe...

INTERVENING EVENTS.—The Sermon on the Mount, from which our last lesson was taken, carried to the minds of the he&rers the conviction that Jesus was, to say the least, far above all their ordinary teachers; "for he. taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes," and he was followed by a new concourse of disciples as he returned into Capernaum (Matt, vii: 28; viii: 1). Here he healed the servant of (he Roman centurion, who sfems to have been a Jewish proselyt...

April 3,1890. Slftlaga BYCHAS. B. LONG. During the Roman ■Catholic jubilee held recently in Baltimore Daniel Dougherty, of national reputation as an orator, made an eloquent address, in which he made the assertion that the people of this country owed a deep aebt of gratitude to the Roman Catholic church, basing bis assertions on the ground that the discovery of America was by Columbus, a son of the Church. It Mr. Dougherty was in earnest, he showed a want of accurate historical knowledge. The discov ery of America was not due to any efforts put forth bv the Church of Rome, for that Church gave Columbus no encouragement in hie scientific pursuits, but persecuted him as it did Galileo lor uttering ideas which were pronounced heretical and punishable. A writer in the Southern Churchman says: "The settlement and civilization of this our country is entirely due to the Church of the Reformation coming with our colonies from Eng land. There is not a rule, not a Jaw in Church or State—save ...

6 What Must I do to Save Others? Dear Missionary,—l have been a regular reader of your pages for a long time, and have used all honorable means in my power to get others become readers of the same. I trust you will allow me space for this article, in which I shall be as brief as my limited knowledge will allow. The question of the Philippian jailer, and of the people on Pentecost, should be asked ot every unconverted person —What must I do to be saved? 1 feel I have only to cross the river, and I am saved. But what I want to know is what and how must I do to save others? It is a question to which I have given a great deal of study, and it is the question of my life. In trying to solve this great problem I see much of the same spirit as demonstrated in our Savior's day. When John the Baptist came, he came neither eating nor drinking, and they said:" "He hath a devil." And when Christ came eating and drinking they said: "Behold a wine-bibber, a friend of publicans and sinners." So the...

APRIL 3, IK OO &he family ©tvcle. Two Side* to the Question. WHAT MEN LIKE IN WOMEN. Before I shall have occupied the space allotted to me to talk in this familiar way with you, I want to answer a question which comes to me from one of the Journal, sisters. She asks: ♦'What are the qualities in wo men which men most admire?" I will tell you: There is a certain something which, for want of a better name, is called womanliness, and it is that which makes women attractive to men. A great many virtues go to make up this one great possession, and they are what men like in women. Men like, in the first place, amiability in a woman. They like a pleasant appearance. ~ ' They like the doing of little things that are pleasant to them. They like the courtesy of the fireside. They, like women whose lives and faces are always full of the sunshine of acontented mind and a cheerful disposition. , They like an ability to talk well and a knowledge of the virtue of silence. They like a mo...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. The Missionary Field. EBB AND FLOW. In my own heart I feel the ebb and flow of missionary zeal. When my acquaintances and dear friends have freely, and after some wrestling and heartthroes, yielded themselves as "living sacrifices" to God to serve him among the heathen, my heart has swelled with an influx of the same spirit which made missionaries and martyrs in the primitive church. But when I have looked around me at the needs of our home congregations, of the people of my own State and country, I have experienced the ebbing of my zeal for the salvation of the whole world. It is plain to me now that in the latter case I have been prone to look chiefly at our human res9urces, and not enough at the divine; been guided by sense and human prudence rather than by faith in God and his promises. "Launch out into the deep," oh, my soul, "and let down thy net for a draught." "And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw; and behold, the mountain...

2 Studies in Sacred History. (No. II.) BY M. B. KYAX. THE THREE SONS OF NOAH. The achievements of the three sons of Noah in their' several spheres are worthy of our attention for a brief space. These are varied, both in character, extent, and time of accomplishment, and perhaps are the best exemplification of the characteristic genius of the different families. Ham was a great builder and ruler. He built up immense civilizations and swayed his sceptre over extensive kingdoms. In the Euphrates valley he reared that Chaldean power over which, perhaps, Nimrod was the first king, and which left traces of its mastery which even yet exist. In the valley of the Nile he erected a kingdom which grew to almost universal dominion before its power was broken and it was thrust from its greatness. He built great monuments, immense buildings, and extensive cities. The Tower of Babel and the Pyramids of Egypt, the temples on the Euphrates and the cities on the Nile, attest at once his passion for b...

To them, therefore, Christ replies: "3o and show John again those things which ye do hear and see"—not only the curing of the blind, the lame, the lepers, the deaf, and the crowning miracle of raising the dead, but the sign of the spirit of the new kingdom.

April 10,1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. S. LONG. The New York Tribune says Judge Ryland, of Missouri, has done his best to cast a gloom over the Southw&t. He has struck a blow at progressive euchre. He instructed a grand jury the other day that playing progressive euchre for prizes is g-a m-b-l-i-ng. That is a big word, and the Judge may be right, but oh! what anguish he has inflicted upon once happy homes. Now that progressive euchre has been assailed, what nice, quiet little game is safe? Perhaps some of these days some judge will be making unkind remarks about prize cakes, postoffices, and grab-bags as adjuncts to church-fairs and festivals. * » * There seems to be such a thing as popular religion in Boston. Before a dime museum on Washington street, that city, a sign was displayed the other Sunday evening announcing the "Scientific Cnurch Grand Concert and Lecture on Old Maids and* PrizeFighters.

I have more than once thought of writing you a letter from the foreign field; but, besides a reluctance to force myself upon you, I have been ill all the time I have been in Japan, and writing has been a severe task.
