». "WW '! *?■ W April 10,1800 &\xe family Circle* Backward Boys who Became Foremost Men. For the comfort of all parents of "backward boys," there is the story of one of the most illustrious men that ever lived, Sir Isaac Newton. We have his own authority for saying that he was extremely inattentive to his studies, and stood very low in his school. At fifteen he was taken away from his books, and set by his mother to the useful work of tilling the ground and disposing of its produce. But his love of study increased with the years. He returned to echool, and was fitted for the university. "The history of science," says Sir David Brewster, from whose biography of Newton these facts are taken, "affords many examples where the young aspirant had been early admitted into her mysteries, but he who was to give philosophy her laws did not exhibit such early talent." "When Newton entered Trinity College, Cambridge, he brought with him," continues the memoir, "a more slender portio...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. The Hayti of Europe is Crete. As a scene of perpetual turmoil and disorder few places can excel it. The cause is not so much the unjust government of the Turks as the inherent weakness of the Cretan disposition. "Liars" they are called by the apostle, and it is doubtful if eighteen centuries have made them truthful. When the prime point of character is weak the life will not be strong or peaceful, and restless and unhappy has been the history of Crete. Previous to 823 A. D. for hundreds of years it was subject to Rome, but at that date the Saracens made themselves masters of the island and kept its mastership for nearly four hundred years. About 1204 it was recaptured by the Crusaders, and Baldwin 1. mad? a present of the island to Pope Boniface, who, however, did not want it. The Pope sold it to the Venetiaus, who kept the stolen property for some timfi; but in 1645 the Turks besieged the island, and after a war la...

2 motives. BY I. A. THAYER. Dr. T. DeWitt Talmage, in the New York Observer, says: "The evil of bribery often begins in the home circle and in the nursery. Parents should never bribe their children. Teach them to.do that which is right because it is right, and not because of the penny or the orange you will give them." Nonsense! A bribe is "a reward or consideration of any kind given or offered to any one corruptly, with a view to influence his judgment or conduct." Rewards to children for doing tight can in no sense be called bribes. But the ad vice, "teach them to do right because it is right," is the chief folly of the above paragraph. I often hear the above expression. "Without the hooe of fee or reward" is supposed to express the highest state ot the ■soul in its volitions. To do right simply because it is right may fee a very high act, but I know of no one in heaven or earth who does it. You tell me that you are honest because it is right to be honest. Are you? or do you do ri...

Such ministry, tbe chief social comfort of our Lord's lonely life, followed him to his death and burial, and some of these devoted women were the "last at the cross and the earliest at the tomb." Such was Mary, surnamed Mag...

April. 17,1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. S. LONG. Bro. F. D. Srygly, formerly one of the editors of Bro. F. G. Allen's Old Path Guide, is now first-page editor of the Gospel Advocate. He is a racy writer and withal a very accommodating Christian gentleman. Recently one of his correspondents expressed himself as being so well pleased with the first page of the Advocate that be wished there were two first pages. Bro. Srygly, in the generosity of his heart, advised the brother to subscribe for two copies of the Advocate, and he would then have the desired two first pages. He quotes from a Methodist exchange this saying: "The Old People's Society of Christian Endeavor does not propose to dissolve. It was formed way back yonder in the morning of the world, and its name is the Church." Bro. Srygly says: "I am not disposed to endorse the brother's statement as to when the Church was formed, but he may put me down for one full scholar toward keeping it "from dissolving." From the vast number of s...

6 Studies in Sacred Hlitorjr. (No. 11.) BY M. B. HVAN. (Continued from last*week.) Wonderful are the achievements of Japheth. He alone of the sons of Jsoah has iu any complete degree fulfilled the mission upon which God sent man forth upon the earth. To and replenish the earth; to sub due the earth, and have dominion over it—this was man's mission. And this requires dispersion, exploration, colonization, discovery, and invention. In these particulars Japheth stands foremost. He sent one detachment eastward from the original home, to explore, colonke, and rule over the earth in that direction. Another detachment he sent north, to penetrate the region of arctic snows and perpetual frosts. Still another he sent westward to penetrate the lands of Europe to the great sea. And when he has subdued theselands, he fits his vessels and sets sail to discover a new world. Upon its eastern shores he pours hiseager multitude j until they sweep across the land. And the sous of Japheth "going west"...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMAIIT. In the lowa Senate last Thursday the liquor-license bill was defeated by a vote of 25) to 21. This is really an indefinite postponement of the question of resubmission. A vote like this shows plainly that lowans are satisfied with the results of prohibition. Moreover, professional politicians will find it needful to note the signs upon the political horizon. In theseda.ysthe bellying sails of political craft need not wetting to hold the wind of prosperity. In many cases dry sails fetch the desired haven soonest. The war-cry of the liquor interest that "prohibition does not prohibit" is met with an emphatic denial in a case like the above. Certain it is that nothing will prohibit unless it is enforced, and we shall find that high license will only regulate as that is enforced. If one law can be placed upon the statute-books and b3 enforced successfully, why not another? The common reply is that prohibition is ahead ...

2 The Baptism of Repentance for Remission ot Sins. BY THOMAS MLNNELL. Several writers in the Missionary have recently renewed the discussion of this subject, and very properly, too, for the public seems to be in an attitude to look at the evidence fairly on both sides. As between the Baptists and ourselves the difference seems to be simply this: that we think they do not require all the Bible does in order to remission of sins. We agree that "repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ" (which constitutes regeneration of the soul) necessarily precede the blessingof pardon. We agree that "with the heart man believeth unto righteousness"— that is, that righteousness is unattainable without belief with the heart; that righteousness is the real destination ot true faith; that faith is a condition of our reaching the righteousness of Christ. We agree, too, that the Greek preposition eis, here rendered "unto," placesthe blessing beyond, and not this side of the true faith...

On the voyage he performed the miracle, which he afterwards repeated, of stilling a raging storm by his word, and thus again showed himself to the affrighted disciples as Lord of the most ungovernable powers of nature. To them the miracle was the more striking from their daily occupation a...

6 A Word to the Rev. Dr. Crosby. (Church Union.) I thank The Church Union for publishing, in the March number, the manly and Christian criticism of the Disciples of Christ, written by my personal friend and brother, Howard Crosby, D. D. Such critcism must result in a better understanding and more intimate fellowship among those who call themselves Christians. I therefore thank Dr. Crosby for writing, and the everalert editor of The Church Union for publishing the article on the first page entitled, "A Word to the Disciples of Christ." The people who have come to be known generally as Disciples of Christ, not the disciples of Christ, have, from the beginning of their existence,given especial at tention to the confessedly difficult problem of Christian unity. That they have solved the problem is not claimed; that they have made some valuable contributions toward its solution is quite certain, at least to my mind, and Dr. Crosby seems to admit as much in the article whose appearance in...

APRIk 24, 1800 ©b* £amU» Gtivcle. Faithfulness. The following incident copied from the Youth's Companion has enough genuine religion in it for the columns of any Christian paper: Two boys were at work rigging a small sail-boat. It lay in an inlet on the New Jersey coast, and had been hired from them for the season by a stranger from New York. "Come alonff, Bob!" said one of the boys. "It's all right now. We'll be too late to see the ball match, if we don't start at once." Bob had taken down some of the old ropes, and had rigged the boat with new ones. The halyards he had not yet examined. "They're all right," urged his companion, trying them, "strong enough to last for years." "No; I'll put in new halyards. I promised to make a thorough jolb of it." "Then you'll miss the game. I'm off!" Tom ran across the field; Bob hesitated as he looked after him. It was a sharp disappointment to miss the game. The old halyards were worn, but they were still stout. "They'll stand this summer well ...

Our chuieh was very much dilapidated by a tree blowing on it a day or two before t lie meeting began; but the spirit of the Master was with us, and our church was greatly revived, as well as having so mauy to make the good confession.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. The chief item of financial importance this week is the annual presentation of the British budget. Few times have chancellors been as fortunate as Mr. Goschen in having a balance to carry forward. The expenses of government exceeded the estimates by tiI,GOO, but the receipts exceeded the estimates by £3,000,000. Nearly two-thirds of this increased revenue is due to greater consumption of alcoholic drinks. The gross revenue raised from alcoholic beverages runs into the great sum of £29,205,000. Commenting on the figures in a speech of three hours' duration, Mr. Goschen said that they showed a universal rush to the beer-barrel, the spirit-bottle, and the wine-decanter. Although last year the national debt was decreased £8,295.000, such decrease is no real sign of national prosperity while it grows out of increased thriftlessness. What thriftlessness is equal to the spending money for liquor? Instead of drinking itself...

2 Studies In Sacred History. (No. III.) BY M. B. RYAN. A STAUNCH CONSERVATIVE. (Concluded from Inst week.) It was' not, therefore, an arbitrary choice which God made when he selected Abraham to be the founder of a new race in which the hope of the world was to be hid and out of which its ealvation was to spring. The character of the man undoubtedly determined the choice, as it also justified it. The man who had dared to stand alone as a believer in the unity of God when all others were drifting into polytheism was a fitting person to become the fountain-head of that stream which should have entrusted to its bosom as its most precious burden that most vital truth. So God called Abraham, and said: "Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto the land that I will shew thee; and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee and make thy name great, and thou shalt be a blessing; and 1 will bless them that bless thee and curse him thatc...
