February 21,1889. Come, then, let us go over into Nebraska, where the license is so high (#1,000) that the conscience of the officer almost smites him as he asks of the saloon keeper his outrageous fee, a nd ask Peter ller, President of tbe Brewer's Association, in Omaha, whether the high license law there diminishes the sale of Jiquor. Mr. Iler answers that he thinks there is no diminution in the sale of liquor. So it seems that the comparison does not hold. Why it does not I am not called upon to answer. further than to refer to the principle of Irenaeus stated above. Howbeit, it is my purpose in another paper to poiut out some of the glaring defects of the monstrous system of high license. Mountain Slflings. BY CHAS. 8. LONG. it is not often I find myself out of harmony with the views set forth in the editorial columns of the Missionary, but from the position assumed by the editor in his leader on "The Godhood of Christ," I feel bound to dissent.

6 ®he Jfamilj} (Ttvclc. Tlie Daughter. My little daughter grows apace; Her dolls are now quite out of date; It seems that 1 must takd their place, We have become such friends of late, We might be ministers of state, Discussing projects of great peril, Such strange new questionings dilate The beauty of my little girl. How tall she grows I What subtle grace Doth every moment animate; With garments gathered for the race She stands, a goddess slim and straight. Young Artemis, when she was eight, Among the myrtle-bloom and laurel— I doubt if she could more than mate The beauty of my little girl. The baby passes from her face, Leaving the lines more delicate, Till in her features I can trace Her mother's smile, serene, sedate. 'Tis something at the hands of fate, To watch the onward years unfurl Each line which goes to consecrate The beauty of my little girl. ENVOY. Lord! hear me, as in prayer I wait. Thou givest all; guard Thou my pearl; And when Thou countest at the Gate Thy jewels, cou...

February 21, 1889. plovfca of (Eumfurt* Recompence. BY ELLA WHEELER WILCOX. • Straight through my heart this fact today By Truth's own hand is driven; <Jod never takes one thing away, But something else is given. I did not know in earlier years, This law of love and kindness; But without hope through bitter tears, I mourned in sorrow's blindness. And ever following each regret For some departed treasure, My sad rep'ning heart was met With unexpected pleasure. I thought—it only happened so — But time this truth has taught me: Js'o least thing from my life can go, But something else is brought me. It is the law complete, sublime, And now with faith unshaken, In patience I but bide my time, When any joy is taken. No matter if the crushing blowMay for the moment down me; Still back of it waits Love, I know, With some new gift to crown me. —Independent.

8 TEXAS. Seymour, Feb'y 8. 1889.—N0 doubt you havo often beard and road accounts of the wild "cow boy," who roams over the broad prairies of Texas and the Territories, and have a longing desire to see them in their natural'homes. Such were my own once, but now they are fully realized. lam farther out on the front than any Christian minister in this part of America, so far as I know. The class of people are not ignorant as might be supposed, for many among them are graduates from our Eastern colleges. It will be my aim and desire from timo to time to give to the readers of the Missionary my mode of preaching, in this country and the results, such as may be of interest. One meeting which I held at Haskel not loDg since I baptized three generations, grandmother, her sons and her grand-daughter, the grand-daughter being seventeen years old.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter From Boston. BY W. H. ROGERS. I write on Washington's Birthday. Lincolu's birthday occurs a few days earlier in the same month. ' Washington was a Southerner—Virginia's noblest son. Lincoln was by adoption, as well as by training and sympathy, a Northerner—the noblest son of Illinois. If the North will be true to the wisdom which was embodied in the greatest name of the Northern roll of patriots; and if the South shall be true to the wisdom personified in the most illustrious son of the South, how then shall there beany more strife and bitterness between these two sections of our common country? In a recent prelude Mr. Cook alluded to the suppression of the ballot as the vaulting-block by which the South leaps into the saddle of power in Congress. I fear there is too much truth in the lecturer's statements. I also fear that too many of the leading men of the North are glad of the suppression of the ballot in the South as a party issue—their vaul...

If not please see that it is done without "delay for the time is short. Call the attention of your preacher to it, if he has been too busy (?) to think of it. If you have no regular minister get some one to make the announcement, or make it yourself. Say that you wish to give something and give all who are willing an opportunity to join with you in so doing. There can be no objection to this. If there should be anyone in the church that is opposed to Foreign Missions or that does not wish to give anything, let him be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regardeth the day regardeth it to the Lord. He that regardeth it not, to the Lord he doth uot regard it. Nobody is under any necessity to five to Foreign Missions on the rst Lord's-day in March. He can give some other day. If there ue first a willing ...

Whereupon the driver fished up a gallon jug of whiskey from the bottom of the stage, which they ea-o-erlv seized with a look which seemed to say: "i»iy little brown jug, How 1 love thee!"

I do not wonder Bro. Cutler inquires about the minutes of the State Convention. Over four months have passed since the adjournment of the Convention, and yet no minutes have been printed. So much time has already elapsed that any good that" might have been derived from their publication has been largely diminished, and they would be about as interesting now as a last year's almanac.

6 The March Collection. $100,000. The day for this collection is at hand. In every' church the fact that a generous offering is needed should be aunounced several times, that all may be prepared to give as they have been Srospered. The Committee on ew Work, appoined by the last Convention, said in their report: "One hundred thousand dollars seems the least we could ask or expect irom so great and growinga body as ours, for the work of Foreign Missions for the coming year, and we therefore earnestly recommend to this Convention that every endeavor be made to raise our resources to that sum during the coming year." The need of an increased income for the Society was urged and emphasized, that its resources may be somewhat more nearly proportionate to its opportunities, and especially that it may increase the number of its' missions and its missionaries more rapidly. One hundred thousand dollars will be needed this year. The forces in the field are greater than ever before. Several new...

February 28,1889. ©he Uamtlu ©trxU. The River Time. <)! a wonderful stream is the river Time, As it runs through the realm of tears, With a faultless rhythm and a musical rhyme And a broader sweep and surge sublime, Ab it blends in the beam of years! How the winters are drifting like Hakes of snow. And the summers like birds between, And the years in the sheaf, how they come and go On the river-'s breast with its ebb and its flow, As it glides in the shadow and sheen! There's a magical isle up the river Time, Where the softest of airs are playing; There's a cloudless sky and a tropical clime, Aud a song as sweet as a vesper chime, And the .Tunes with the roses are straying. And the name of the isle is the "Long Ago," And we bury our treasures there; There are brows of beauty, and bosoms of snow, There are heaps of dust, —oh! we loved them so. — There are trinkets, and tresses of hair. There are fragments of songs that nobody sings, There are parts of an infant's prayer, T...

Put on its surface the Republic of France and the British Isles and Portugal, and there will be room enough for Austria. It is nearly 2,000 miles long and has an average width of4oo miles. Humboldt said: "This vast empire, under careful cultivation, would alone produce all that commerce collects together from the rest of the globe." The mines which were worked before the Spanish conquest are as profitable as ever. The population numbers 11,000,000. One-sixth of these are European, one-half pure Indian, and one-third a mixture of these two. The Roman Catholic is the prevailing religion.

Are you sure you are not nl>le Just a falt'ring prayer to raise, Choosing not your will and pleasure, If your Savior it will praise? Do you feel no obligation To acknowledge Christ in you? Have you never asked in earnest, "Lord, what wilt Thou have me do?" You have asked, and He has shown you, But your shrinking heart cried, "No!

Are We Doing Enough—This is a question which should interest every lover of God's eternal word. Are we doing enough for Jesus? Are we doing enough for che salvation of never-dying souls? The religious world is doing more to-day than ever before for the spread of the gospel—for the salvation of sinners. This is right,but are we sure we are doing all that we can do? Should we not do more this year than we did last? These are questions which should interest all of us. Questions which we should think about earnestly, seriously and prayerfully. There are thousands dying in their sins because they know not the wav of life and salvation. Let us not waste time fussing over plans and means of spreading the gospel. There is too much of this among religious people all over the world. There arte many who love money better than C...

March 7, 1889. The 'Warmth of a Word. 'Twas a day in the dead of winter, And the echo of hurried feet Struck 3harp from the icy pavement Of the pitiless city street. Each passer was loath to linger, Though wrapped in a fur-clad fold; For the air was a-tinglewith frost-flakes, And the sky was benumber with cold. The cimeter wind, in its fury, Bore down like a sweeping foe; The tempest was waiting the onset. And abroad were its scouts of snow. Yet, 'midst it all, with his tatters A-flap in the whirling blast, A child who seemed born of the wiutei— A creature of penury—passed. So tremulous were liis accents, As he shivered and crouched and sung, That the names of the mumbled paptrs Seemed frozen upon his tongue. He paused for a bitter moment, As a wondrously genial face Arrested hit. voice and held him With a pity that warmed the place. ■"Have a paper?" The kind eye glistened As the stranger took the sheet, And glanced at the stiffened fingers, And thought of the icy feet. Then dropped...

'Tis the Master who holds the chisel, He knows just where Its edge should be driven sharpest, To fashion there The semblance that He is carving; Nor will He let One delicate stroke too many, Or few, be set On forehead or cheek, where only He sees how all Is tending—and where the hardest The blow should fall, Which crumbles away whatever Superflous line Would hinder His hand from making The work Divine.
