May 1,1890. Sittings. BY ( HAS. 8. LONG. The Herald and Presbyter recently commented on the rebaptism of the twelve Ephesian disciples in the following vigorous terms: "What is the connection of the gift of the Holy Spirit with baptism? I believe it to be more important than is commonly supposed. The thoughts of the convert when baptize i are fixed upon Christ as his Savior—the Christ whom <}od the Father gave to die for him. In the ordinance he publicly accepts of Christ and promises to obey and serve him. But he is baptized in the name of the Spirit as well as that of the Son; and this means that he takesthe Holy Spirit to be his teacher, his comforter, and his sanctifier. 3o these twelve Ephesians, when they received Christian baptism, received the- gift of the Holy Spirit —the fulfillment of the promise of the Savior that he would send another comforter to abide with his people forever. * * * So we at baptism receive the same spirit that the Ephesians received, though...

6 Georgia Letter. BY T. M. FOSTER. In spite of us the question will come up that if God has or is now putting forth a power or influence to save the world, why does not that power save all who come in contact with it ? If Igo into a room where the gas is turned off, I am affected by it. If I come in contact with a contagious disease, I take it. Living in a malanious district, my system pets tull of it. Why, then, does not the influence God puts forth to save the world save all who are where it is exerted. Last year in Walla Walla, Washington, Clark llraden had a debate with C. B. Reynolds. One night Mr. Reynolds exhibited a map of different colors contrasting the nations Christianized, and thot-e who have never heard the gospel. Then pointing to the small number saved he said with a sneer: "If I were a God, and could not do better than that, I would go down into Arkansas and set up a peanut stand and sell them at live cents a quart." People talk about God saving the world as though ...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. The Missionary Field. Slugs for an Offering.—The Missionary Herald for April tells a good story which cornea from Porapora, one of the Society Islands. The native converts, having absolutely no money to give, but being intensely desirous of making an offering, were advised by their native pastor to pray efbout ib. This they did, and very soon certain traders came, offering to buy beche-cle-mer, a sea-slug found in large quantities on the reefs, and regarded as a great delicacy by the Chinese. Every able-bodied person turned out to collect these slugs, aud those who could not go to the reef remained on shore to attend to the drying process, and in a short time several tons of the article were ready. The result was a contribution of $840, making an average of three-quarters of a dollar for every man, woman, and child in Porapora. Thismoney was sent to the London Missionary Society. Chinese Enumeration Bill.— The Interior says: "There is danger to the ca...

2 Studies in Sacred History. (%o. IV.) BY M. B. RYAN. A STAUNCH CONSERVATIVE. (Concluded.) We come now to look more closely at the person and character of Abrah-uu. Outwardly he probably differed in nothing materially from the other men of his time and station. Are we not apt to forget this, and, because God has raised him to such superlative honors in spiritual things, to think of him apart from his natural surroundings and character? And yet in doing this we rob the picture of one of its most essential features —its natural background — against which the true harmony of all its parts can alone be seen. We may see his counterpart in almost all outward things in that land to day, for there custom never changes. The inhabitants move on in the same routine as when Abraham lived. Habits, dress, appearance, occupation are the same. And in the Arabian sheik—the Bedouin chief—of this day we can see the Abraham of that in outward appearance. For that is what he was. When he left Haran to g...

This is my beloved Son: hear him.—Luke ix: 30. TIME. —Summer of A. D. 29: several weeks after the last lesson, and about nine months before the crucifixion. PLACE.—Not known, but generally supposed to be Mount Hernion, in the vicinity of Cffisarea-Philippi. PARALLEL ACCOUNTS.—Matt, xvn: 1-18; Mark ix: 2-10. INTERVENING EVENTS.-Whilethe miracle of feeding the five thousand (the subject of our last less(*n) convinced the people that Jesus was the prophet predicted by Moses, it excited proud hopes of independence instead of humble faith in him, and they were ready to "take him by force and make him kinn" (John vi: 14). Here was renewed, through the people of Galilee, the offer which Satan had made on the mount of temptation. Jesu?j sent the multitude away, and the disciples who, perhaps, were quit...

May 8,1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. S. LONG. A timely and able article from the pen of Bro. Thomas Munnell, of Baltimore, appears in the Christian-Evangelist of this week under the title of "John A. Broaddus in John Hopkins University—An Opportunity Lost." Dr. Broaddus delivered an address to the students of the university on "The Ethical Teaching of Christ," and as "a statement of the superiority of said teaching it was all that could be desired." The "lost opportunity," in the estimation of Bro. Munnell, "consisted in failing to present the only unique and differential claims Jesus ever made for himself—not that he was the best of all ethical teachers, but that he was the only Savior." In this respect the Christ stands out in bold relief from all other teachers of either ancient or modern times, and in all his teaching and the mighty works which he wrought he sought to impress upon the people the reason for his presence in the world, viz., that he "came to seek and save the lost." Spea...

6 Pennsylvania Letter. DY M. B. RYAN. The readers of the Missionary, both in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, will remember very distinctly the Waterloo defeat of the prohibition cause at the polls on the eighteenth of June ia this Stale. The inside history of the triumph of the liquor power on that occasion has recently been made public. The Voice, of New York, has published an interview with the manager of the liquor men's campaign against the amendment, in which the whole plan of procedure is revealed. This interview was obtained under the pretense that the information was needed for work in the liquor campaign in Nebraska. The manager fell into the trap so adroitly set for him, and freely unbosomed himself to Col. R. S. Cheves, one of the istauiichest prohibitionists in the nation. The story is a simple one. There was simply an unlimited use of money in bribing polit irians and the secular press, with a limitedly successful effort to muzzle the clergy, or induce them to advocate high...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. The defeat of the International Copyright bill in the House of Representatives reflects only dishonor on those concerned. The present state of the law is a state of literary dishonesty. Literature is about the only thing that we can steal from foreigners, and we do it in large measure. We talk about the inalienable right of man to the result of his own labor, and then draw the line at the border of our own country, refusing to give to the foreigner what we insist i#a natural right for our own citizenship. Moreover, we refuse to remunerate the highest class of work and the hardest. The literature of no country can be protected by any tariff law. Discourage foreign authorship by giving it no rights in this country, and you help to take away the educational influence that helps to build up a reading public for home literature. It is said that the passage of the bill would make books higher and thus cut down reading amo...

2 LFor the MiaatoL&ry Weekly.] What are Syndicates and Trusts? Thinking this topic might be of interest to some of thecoun try readers of the Missionary, the writer proposes as concisely as practicable to explain the working of these modern inventions of capital which, it is proposed to show, are but the cunning devices of a set of conscienceless capitalists and sharp-witted attorneys to defraud more than sixty millions of people. To premise, we will say it is an axiom of universal application that where competition is not monopoly always is, aud that it is the experience of mankind everywhere that wheuever aud wherever monopoly prevails and is allowed to entrench itself it is soon to inflict disaster upon the rank and tile of both producers and consumers. Especially is this an unfailing result when the product is, as it almost always is, one of the great necessaries of life—such, for example, as the article salt, a great world's necessity, which not long ago it was atte...

MAY 15,1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. S. LONG. William E. Gladstone, England's Old Man Eloquent, has always been a staunch defender of the Bible as well as a firm believer in its teaching. He has most effectually met the assaults of America's high priest of infidelity, Col. Ingersoll, capturing his stroßgholds and turning his own guns upon him and greatly demoralizing his forces. A short time figo he wrote second article, which appeared in Good Words, in contradiction of recent assaults on the Bible by the rationalistic school, and he deals with the creation in a highly characteristic and original manner. Mr. Gladstone contends that the opening of the book of Genesis constitutes a plain and straightforward narrative of the preaaaraite period. He contends that it is neither poetic nor scientific in meaning, nor can it be considered so in interpretation ; but it was, he says, a direct communication from God to teach primitive man his proper plan in creation, and to give him a conception in ...

God's covenant with Abraham involved the raising up of a numerous seed, and this wasseedto be God's instrument ler the pre servation of his truth. Not all the descendants of Abraham, however, were counted in this covenant nation. The promise was to be fulfilled in Isaac; Ishmael was left out. Again, of Isaac's two sons Esau was rejected and Jacob choseu. The descendants of Jacob became the chosen peoJle. Here they got their name. acob, on account of his prevailing with the angel, received the name "Israel," aud his descendants became the "Israelites." These grew into a family, then into a tribe, in the land of Canaan. From here they went into Egypt, and there they sank into comparative obscurity for generations. Then God visited them, aud they came out of Egypt a great people, a mighty host. There were GOO,OOO men of war. There must have been a total population of 2,000,000 or more.
