The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. in Two Hemispheres. BY G. T. SMART. It will be remembered that during the last few years a number of the great English breweries have been turned into joint stock companies. It is supposed that this transformation is due in large measure to the growth of adverse sentiment regarding the liquor trade. The struggle which took place to secure stock in the vast concern was similar in its nature, though not so disastrous in its effects, as the struggle for South Sea stock in 1720. The present holders of brewery stock are finding out that the premiums paid were too high and* that in some cases, at least, the original owners had sufficient reason for selling. Altogether different in its design, and it is presumable in its result, is the turning into a similar company the concern of H. B. Claflin Company, of New York city. The wave of incorporation has now reached the dry goods trade, and the success of this attempt may induce others of the same kind. The inco...

2 Christian Life in tbe Early Days—No. a. THE FIRST HALF CENTURY OF BENEFICENCE. BY G. E. IRELAND. A glance at the home, under the uesars, will show how pitilessly the claims ot the weak—as indeed were the rights ot all humanity —were despised by paganism. In these days, when women are treated with loving respect and children with affectionate tenderness, as in all Christian countries, we can hardly imagine what were then the perils, and often the sorrows, of women and children. The husband was the sole arbiter of the destiny of his wife and children. He might break the marriage bond as he chose, and dispose of his daughters to suit his own caprice. He might expose his children for slaves, or abandon them to be found by others. How great tue transformation in the Christian home. For the New Testament' enjoins the husband to temper the lawful authority vested in him by a respectful tenderness towards the weaker sex," and to exercise a loving guardianship over his family. "Husbands, l...

May 22,1890. SittingsBY CHAS. 8. LONG. Major C. R. Condor, leader of the Palestine Exploring Expedition, in his compact volume on "Palestine" relates, for the special entertainment and instruction of the general reader, the story of his fruitful researches in Judea, Samaria, Galilee, Moab, Gilead, and Northern Syria. The book contains the results of all recent explorations and is of great interest, because of its exhaustive reports of Moslemism and its comparison with Christianity. As to the comparative vitality of the Christian and Moslem religions in lands where both exist together, Major Condor believes that the views of tourists have but little value. It is necessary to live for many years in a Mos lem country, and in daily contact with Moslems of all classes, in order really to know what they and their religion are like; and such contact, he thinks, will not lead the impartial observer to form a very hi<rh estimate of the practical results of Moslem teaching. In the ...

6 Love Me Now* Withhold all eulogies when I am dead, All noisy sorrow; Give me the tender word to-day iLstead Of tears to mosrow. Come not with flowers to strew above my breant, And s ; gh for me there; The hawk or crow may haunt the piny crest; • I shall not be there. Speak not ray name, when I have passed fi om earth, In tones of sadness; At thought of me repress no note of mirth, No burst of gladness. B»gard me not as altered when removed To the hereafter; Think of me still as loving and as loved— With joy and laughter. Delay not, thou whom I have wounded sore, Till thou outlive me To grant the pardon thatlhere implore: But now forgive me. Pretend not that I merit saintly fame; Let Mercy save me: Sufficient for my epitaph the name My mother gave me. —Edward N. Pomeroy. Letter from Turkey. Dear Missionary,—l have 110 doubt that the friends of the Turkish mission and the contributors of the "Isaac Errett Memorial Chapel" will be glad to know that the house of worship of the Church ...

Hospital: Mission Band, Newport News, $3; Mission Band, Bowling Green, $10. ** * * The Sunday edition of the Richmond Times has these words in its leading editorial on the "Meetings of Christians." "That church is dead which has no missions, for in spite of the statistics of Christian pessimists showing the alarming increase of devoters to heathen religions, the value of missions cannot be over-estimated. It used to be a favorite expression that 'the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.' Missionary work is not inseparable from martyrdom, but the phrase has been changed to 'work of missions abroad is the enlivening of the church at home.' And so it is that busy men ...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. The Pilot. A SWEET POEM BY MBS. MABGABET J. PBESTON. Commenting in the Sunday ■ School Times on the lines of Tennyson—"I hope to meet my Pilot face to face, When I have crossed the bar"— Mrs. Margaret J. Preston writes the following sweet poem: Who is the Pilot, into whose sure hand, Waiting the summons, as the day grows dark, Upon the border of this earthly strand, We may commit our bark? Can Reason rule the deck, and firmly steer Through depths were swirling maelstroms rave and roar, And madly threaten to o'erwhelm us, ere We reach the thither shore? Has calm Philosophy, whose lore unrolls The anxious of the ages, ever found A perfect chart, to map what rocks and shoals Beset the outward bound? Can Science guide, who, with exploring glass, Sweeps the horizon of the restless tide, And questions 'mid the mists that so harass, Is there a farther side? Dare old Tradition set its untrimmed light Upon the prow, and hope to show the way, Through gulfing tr...

2 The Open Saloon. BY NEIL MACLEOD. In the Missionary Weekly of May Bth is a letter from Northern Neck, and concerning the the "liquor traffic," I read it, not without surprise. With all kindness and respect to the writer, I must say it sounded like the voice of one just waked from a Kip Van Winkle sleep. In this "neck of woods" we had almost forgotten that people used to talk that way about the saloon. And now only those who are yet in sympathy with the traffic, or those who are still blindly devoted to the old political parties that are its staunchest allies and last and sole defences, repeat the stale and exploded arguments from what has "existed from the days of Noah until now." The time has come when men are saying in their hearts, and out loud, that some of these things that have always been ought not to be, and, by the grace of God, shall be no more. The time has come when what has never been before is just what we may expect to come to pass. If, fifty years ago, a man who ha...

GOLDEN TEXT.—Ask. and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto yon.—Luke xi: 9. PLAGE.—Unknown. SUBJECT.—Prayer. INTRODUCTION. -The tenth chapter, from which our last lesson was taken, closes with an account of a visit to Martha and Mary, and the beautiful lesson taught in the conversation with them. Both the time and the place of the teachings of the eleventh chapter—the first thirteen verses of which form our lesson for to-day—are entirely unknown. The greater part of this chapter contains the teachings of Jesus probably at various times, and given here out of their connection. 1. And it came to pas*, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said nnto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also tanght his disciples. 2. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Onr Father w...

MAY 29,1890. Sittings. BV CHAS. S. LONG. Those fanatics known as "Christian scientists/' "faith curists," or "voodooists" have always met with opposition from" reputable physicians, and their efforts have been seconded by boards of health, city authorities, and the gospel ministry. These have combined' in their efforts to mitigate the evils which flow from these false systems that have their ramifications in many sections of our country. It is rather disheartening to find men of supposed intelligence and influence bolstering up these diseased theories by making a plea for them. The coroner of Jamestown, N. Y., had to investigate the death of a Mrs. Barrows, due to "faith curists'" willful neglect, and Brooklyn has had its full share of these vagaries of these blind leaders of the blind, and has put several of the leaders in their firoper place behind prison bars, n view of these facts it is somewhat surprising to learn that Dr. Talmage, in a recent Sunday sermon published broadcast ...

6 Studies In Sacred History. (No. VI.) BY M. B. RYAN. THE BONDAGE IN EGYPT. Two questions may well and wisely be asked concerning the bondage of Israel in Egypt. First: How is it that when God promised to Abraham and his descendants the land of Canaan as an inheritance, we find these "descendants" sojourning in a strange land for over two hundred years? Second: By what process did a whole nation, whose fathers had been freemen of the most pronounced type, lose their independence and become the veriest slaves? From the Scripture record we may outline the answers to these questions. We may fill up this outline from reliable outside sources. The circumstances under which the Israelites first went into Egypt are very interesting, and they must be familiar to all readers of the sacred Scriptures. Of Jacob's twelve sons Joseph was next to the youngest. Perhaps because of his youth, and also because he was the child of his best-loved wife, Rachel, and doubtless also because of his nobler c...

MAY 29,1890 The Spirit of Christ. BY W. O. MOORE. "If any man have not the spirit of Christ, he is none of his." This statement is clear and definite. All the children of God especially should contemplate it with that concern that can be pacified only by the assurance that their minds are transformed into the likeness of Christ. Those who possess the divine nature can discern the wishes and will of Christ, and discover that his thoughts are their thoughts. Because they possess thelight and walk in the fight, they have fellowship with him in thought, in wishes, in purpose, and in walk. They have assurance that he will acknowledge them before the Father. What is the mind of Christ? "Lo, I come to do thy will, 0 God." (Heb. 10: 9.) "Jesus saith unto them, my meat is to do the will of him that sent me." (John iv: 34.) "I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father who hath sent me." (John v: 30.) 1. A prominent feature of the mind ot Christ was complete resignation to the will of G...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The enumerators for our census are upon us. To judge by the numberless editorials upon the subject —most of which are pacific in character —one that the modern enumerator was like unto the Roman censor—who only numbered that he might tax. Although these interrogation points in general only have thirty questions to ask, by certain people these questions will be dreaded. Three' questions in particular are seriously objected to by many—those concerning enquiries upon diseases, defects, ana crime. There are few people who would uphold the criminal in his objection to questions relating to his crime, but many would feel sympathetic towards those who suffer from defects. In a late issue of the Deaf-Mutes' Journal, an organ of a very defective class, we find the following brave and sensible words: "The enquiries are not so impertinent or irrelevant as they seem; they are not asked for the amusement of the census-taker,...

2 Christian Life in the Early Days.—No. 4. THE FIIiST CENTURIES OF PERIL. BY G. E. IRELAND. The engagements of social intercourse, so inestimably pleasant to us, were perilous to our brethren of those days. We go forth on festal days, such as Christmas or New Year's-day or the Fourth of July, full of satisfaction and gladness at our national freedom which allows none to harass or molest us in the pursuit of reasonable enjoyments. But in such seasons the dangers, ever numerous, multiplied. The Christian would be invited to sacrifices or feasts. How should he act ? To refuse would be an offense, and to give offense would often be to incur accusation. To accept would be likely to place him in danger of seeing or mingling in things unlawful. Here, again, Tertullian has most stringent counsel. If it be only to serve his friend he expresses himself willing to go; but if it be in honor of the sacrifice he will most plainly refuse. The very speech of those times was impregnated with heathen...
