June O, 1890. International Snnday-School Lessons FOBIB9O. SECOND QUARTER. Lesson XI: June 15. The Rich Man's Folly. . Luke xii: 13-21. GOLDEN TEXT.—Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consistetli not in abundance of the things which he possesseth.—Luke xii: 15. TlME.—November or December, A. D. 29; immediately following the last lesson. PLACE.—Probably in Perea, beyond Jordan. Jesus about thirty-three years old; on his last journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. SUBJECT.—A Warning Against Covetousness. INTRODUCTION. —After the events of our last lesson, Jesus continued his journey. Many incidents occurred which gave rise to many discourses from Jesus. At one time we find him casting out a dumb demon, which led to the charge that he cast out devils through the power of the chief of the devils. This charge he fully disproves. Next he answers the demand made by others for a sign from heaven. We next find him dining at the house of a Pharisee, and discoursing to the Pha...

June 5,1890. BY CHAS. S. LONG. Mother, I'm tired, and I would fain be sleeping; Let me repose upon thy bosom seek; But promise me that thou wilt leave off weeping. Because thy tears fall hot upon my cheek* Here it is cold; the tempest raveth madly; . But in my dreams all is wondrous bright; I see the angel children smiling gladly, When from my weary eyes I shut the light. In Mackeyville, Pa., on the 24th instant, Sister Lillie Harvey closed her eyes upon the things of earth and opened them upon the glories of heaven; and on yesterday her mortal body was consigned to the grave to sleep until the sounding of the trumpet by the angel of the resurrection. Miss Lillie was the only child of an aged, widowed mother, and the two had been inseparable companions since the death of the husband and father. In early life she consecrated herself to Christ, and from that day until she finished her pilgrimage here below she adored her profession and was a living epistle that could be known and read...

6 Paul's Crucifixion. BY AV. O. MOORE. To crucify means "to fasten and put to death on a cross." Christ "died the ignominious death of the cross." From a human point of view his death is awful to comtemplate. When regarded from the divine standpoint it brings to view divine mercy, infinite love, a disposition to make possible our redemption. We can glory in the cross when we consider that "God commended his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us." The preaching of the cross, to some, is the EowerofGod. What crucifixions as the death of Christ produced ? The figurative meaning of a word is as easy of apprehension as its literal meaning. The literal meaning of the word crucily is seen in the different accounts of the manner in which Christ was put to death. The figurative meaning of the word crucify is • eeen in the following words of Paul: "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ liveth in me; and that life which I ...

June 5,18Q0 Che family ©trsU* The Voiceless. We count the broken lyres that rest Where the sweet wailing singers slu tuber, But o'er their silent sister's breast The wild-flowers who will stoop to number? A few can touch the magic string, And noisy Fame is proud to win them: Alas! for those that never sing, But die with all their music in them! Nay, grieve not for the dead alone Whose song has told their heart's sad story; Weep for the voiceless, who have known The cross without the crown of glory 1 Not where the Leucadian breezes sweep O'er Sappho's memory-haunted billow, But where the glistening night-dews weep On nameless sorrow's churchyard pillow. O hearts that break and give no sign, Save whitening lip and fading tresses, Till death pours out his cordial wine Slow-dropped from Misery's crushing presses— If singing breath or echoing chord To every hidden pang were given. What endless melodies were poured, As sad as earth, as sweet as heaven! —Oliver Wendell Holmes. Little Scott...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The Jewish Messenger, in a recent issue, discusses the question: "What is It to be Religious?" and it has some very wise observations upon the subject. It is especially noticeable that slavish obedience to the law and religious pride are classed with the negatives of the question. "We may pray, fast, kiss the scroll of the law, wear phylacteries as large as a cobblestone, and be regular at service, and yet the soul, the spirit, may be the reverse of religious. To be religious is to be, not to appear; to act, not to feel; to translate into life prayer and symbol that our susceptibilities and powers awaken to fresher and richer bloom." Most beautiful is the following sentiment when we consider the national prejudice of the Jews of long ago: "With humility in our hearts, with kindness in our thoughts, with consciousness of our dependence on a common Father near to all, whatever their race or faith, and with a resol...

2 Some Thoughts about the Golden Rule. BY J. Ij. M»;DON.\M>. It is difficult to tell just where the principles of the Gulden Rule first began to be recognized as necessurv to the best interests ot the race. I am led to think, however, the question to Cain: "Where is thy brother?" had something to do with it. His question, iu reply: "Am I my brother's keeper? was a kind of excuse made to palliate what he then recognized as crime. Noah grasped some of its truths when he urged the sinning antediluvian world to prepare against the destruction by the flood. Abraham had a broader conception ot its truths when he yielded to Lot the choice of territory—his own by promise. David gives an imperfect expression of it when he condemns himself to death before Nathan. So we may trace its truth through the family clan, tribe, and nation, as revealed in the Old Testament Scriptures, and know the force of Jesus' words when he says: "This is the law and the prophets." But the development of...

PLACE.— Perea. beyond Jordan PARALLEL TEACHINGS.—Matt, vi: 25-34. INTRODUCTION— Turning from the man who cau>e to him about the inheritance, and irom the people to whom he addressed the parable of the rich fool, he again speaks to his disciples, and teaches them where they may find that which shall be the best preservative against all such over-anxious thoughts for the future—namely, in the assurance of the love and care of a Heavenly Father. So that the connection is as close a« it is beautiful between this parable and the instructions which immediately follow. Nearly all the teachings which follow in this chapter are fonud iu Matthew in other connections, but with more or...

June 12.1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. S. LONG. The editorial in the Missionary of May 29th will bear rereading, and is a strong and timely presentment of the need of "Loyalty to our People and Plea." Here is a paragraph that will bear reErint, and it ought to be indelily fixed in the mind of every loyal Disciple. Of course loyalty to the people with whom we stand identified implies loyalty to Christ our Master and Teacher: "We must be loyal to the people with whom, in the providence of God, we stand allied. We are not Methodists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, or Baptists. We will wear those names only which indicate our relation and allegiance to Christ and tend to unite the people of God." The famous "Declaration and Address," published to the world in 1809 by Thomas Campbell, then a minister in the Presbyterian Church, was regarded at that time as a startling and revolutionary document. The prime object of that "address" was to form a "Christian association" among the Presbyterian chur...

6 Docs It Pay the Farmer to Have Ills Grain Made Into Whiskey? - BY G. W. OODKN. I was interested in the article on monopolies in the Missionary a few weeks ago. I feel a deep iuterest iu the farmer, because I was raised on the farm and have always labored, more or less, with'the farming class. If the farmer prospers the nation prospers, aud a prosperous people, if the prosperity is not too extensive, take more iuterest in their souls than a people who are not making a good living. Much the largest number of the people of the United States are farmers. Hence, the safety of the nation depends upon the prosperity of the farmer. The farmer is often told that it mikes sale for his grain to have it made into intoxicating driuk. Is this true? The farmers of America sell grain at from thirteen cents to one dollar per bushel. The whiskey that is made from a bushel of grain sells for about eighteen dollars by the drink. A man would not allow a miller to buy his grain at a dollar a bushel and...

JUNEI2. IK"" jfche family ©ivcU* "How Much do I Cost?" The Commonwealth tells of a Uittle ten-year-old girl who was dying. She was the pet of the family, beautiful in face and in «oul. The father fell on his knees <by her bedside an 1 wept and prayed for grace to say: "Thy will be done." His sobs disturbed the child, who had been .lying apparently unconscious. She opened her eyes and, with a look of pain on her sweet face, asked: "Papa, dear papa, how much do I cost you a year?" ""Be quiet, my child," said the father, fearing that delirium was upon her. "Please, papa, tell ine how much I cost you." To soothe her he replied: "My darling, maybe you cost thirty or forty pounds. What of it?" "'Because," she replied, "I thought maybe you would be willing to pay that much this year to buy Bibles for poor children to remember me by." With a breaking heart her father answered, as he kissed tenderly her cold brow: "Yes, I will do it every year as long as I live, and thus my Lillia...

8 Patient "With the Living. Sweet friend, when thou and I are gone Beyond earth's weary labor, When srjiall shall be our need of grace From comrade or from neighbor; Passed all the strife, the toil, the care, And done with all the sighing— » What tender ruth shall we helve gained, Alas I by simply dying? Then lips too chary ef their praise Will tell our merits over, And eyes too swift our faults to see Shall no defect discover. Then hands that would not lift a stone, Where stones were thick to cumber Our steep hill-path, will scatter flowers Above our pillowed slumber. Sweet friend, perchance both thou and I, Ere love is past forgiving, Should take the earnest lesson home — Be patient with the living. To-day's repressed rebuke may save Our blinding tears to-morrow; Then patience—e'en when keenest edge May whet a nameless sorrow. 'Tis easy to be gentle, when Death's silence shames our clamor; And easy to discern the best, Through memory's mystic glamour; But wise it were for thee and...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. "Companionship*" "If I should kiss the sweetest lips I know, And feel them cold as ice beneath my own; If I should watch the life-light slowly go From eyes that now with love's bright image glow; I should not be alone. "If I should fold above a form of clay The helpful hands whoseclinging touch has grown So dear, and clasping lilies pale as they Within them, sadly turn and go away, I should not be alone. "For though my dearest earthly friend were dead, And though my dearest earthly hope had flown, And though my sorrow must be left unsaid, Still, even then, I should be comforted, Nor left to grieve alone. "For thou, dear Christ, art not afar in space; Thou speakest to my heart in tender tone; There is no night where I cannot see thy faco; Thy smile illuminates the darkest place, And I am not alone." —Selected. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The British Cabinet is the scene of trouble. Events are following so fast that the position of Lord Sali...

2 Studies in Sacred History. (No. VII.) BY M. B. RYAN. * MOSES. The name of Moses has a welldeserved place on humanity's roll of honor. His ministry in the interests of human welfare and advancement entitle him to the perpetual respect and honor which all enlightened peoples are willing to accord to him. Looking at his work from the manward side, he has left his impress upon the civilization and legislation of enlightened lands as no other individual has done. His history and his character are alike interesting and instruc tive to study. It is an interesting thought that many of the men who haveled movements against oppression and error in the world have been reared in the very bosoms of the systems which they have attacked'. Paul was reared at the feet of Gamaliel, and instructed perfectly in all the requirements of the Jewish system, and he became the chief champion of Christianity against Jewish intolerance and persecution, and forever secured the infant religion of Jesus from a ...

JUNE 19,1890. Sittings. BY CHAB. S. LONG. The "society" question seems to be attracting more than the usual amount of attention at the present time, and careful and conservative men in the various denominations seem to be asking: "Whereunto will this thing grow?" The Congreg&tionalist, a leading paper of the Congregationalist Church, recently published an article on "The Future of the Endeavor Movement" that furnishes food for thought. The writer says: "So much of the life and activity of hundreds of churches have come to be connected with these societies that the question naturally suggests itself, whereunto will this thing grow? Will the future show any decrease in the reach and beneficial effects of this organization, which has spread so rapidly since its birth, less than ten years ago ? * * * The strictures upon the movement may be reduced to two comprehensive charges—that of too much organization, and that of too great independence. In other words, the machinery som...

6 Self* Justification. Many, if not all, have a criterion ot action. If they conform to that criterion they feel Justified before the bar of conscience. They prove that they are justified by making it appear that they have acted in accordance with certain regulations. The Jew feels justified if he confurms to the requirements of the law. The Mormon feels justified if he conforms to the requirements of his church. The devotee of any church or religion feels justified if he is true and faithful to the teachings of his church. He feels justified if he is true to the dictates of the conscience that his religion creates. Any one may live up to the teachings and regulations of a church, yet be not justified before God unless the teachings and regulations he subscribes to in faith and practice are what God demands. To be justified before God every one should settle satisfactorily the questions: Are the teachings and requirements of "my church" what Christ teaches and enjoins upon his follo...
