June 19,1800. ©h* family (Mvcle* "Send That Boy to If e." "The pay le forty dollars a month, and a good youth is sure of promotion. That is what the permanent men at the railroad shops complain about. This place is now vacant because the lad'your partner sent us, and who filled it worthily a year, is now placed where he gets eighty dollars a mouth. So we trust you to choose his successor. They may ask you a few questions about the candidate for form's sake at the office, but your man is sure to pass muster." The above was addressed by a busy railroad officer to a city lawyer, who replied: "There is my friend's son, Urban Starr; his father spoke to me about employment for him. To be sure, Urban is rather above the place as to talent and culture; but times are hard, and the young should climb the low rounds of the ladder. I'll see about proposing him." ' Thank you. I'll be doubly obliged if you will take your apElicant up to the office and see im accepted." The railroad man hurried aw...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. Not My Will tout Tliine toe Done. BY B. O. PLUMMER. Not as I will but as Thou wilt; Let thie my earnest purpose be, Nor let me waver once since he Whose precious blood for all was spilt To cleanse us from the power of guilt, Pleased not himself but thee. No gift to thee my hands have brought Since all I am, I have, is thine, Paid for with love so full, divine, That, tho' so poor and owning nought, Yet rich beyond the reach of thought Since thou, my God, art mine. What can I do, what can I say, To make thy matchless goodness known? The boundless mercy thou hast shown In giving Him, the Life, the Way, A Shepherd for the souls astray, To lead them as his own? 0, in thy great compassion, Lord, Put thou his seal upon m.v brow; Give me some service even now, Taught by thy Spirit, by thy Word, To show to those who never heard How loving-kind art thou. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. It was a pleasure last week to chronicle the success of women in the...

2 Is Christianity Advancing or Retreating? BY B. B. TYLER. There is a great deal more of religion pure and undefiled before our God and Father than can be found in the churches. Organized Christianity by no means embraces all the Christianity abroad in the world. This is an important fact. Do not. for a moment forget it when trying to answer the question, "Is Christianity advancing or retreating?" There are those in the world who seem to be very certain that the religion of Jesus is losing ground; that Christianity is on the retreat; that faith is failing, and that the world is growing worse. It was affirmed in my presence a few days ago that the saloons are doing more harm in New York and Brooklyn than the churches are doing good—that saloon-keepers are more potent than preachers. This is not true. The saloons are mighty engines of evil. Saloon-keepers are active and efficient ministers of Satan. The amount of evil done by the keepers of gin-mills and generated in grog-shops God on...

GOLDEN TEXT.— Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the Sabbath days.— Matt, xii: 12. TlME.—November-December, A. D. 29; during Jesus' last journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. PLACE.—Somewhere in Perea, beyond Jordan. Jesus about thirty-three years old; drawing near to the close of his ministry. SUBJECT.—The True Way to Keep the Sabbath. INTRODUCTION. —In our last lesson Jesus was teaching his disciples lessons of trust in God, and the privilege of laying up treasures in heaven —taking for his text the man who interrupted his preaching in order to obtain his help in regaining an inheritance. This, with what is recorded in several of the following chapters of Luke, embracing the incident of our lei-son to-day, occurred probably on the last journey of Jesuß from Galilee to Jerusalem, but at what particular point it is very difficult to determine....

June 26,1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. 8. LONG. The Missionary Weekly of April 10th contained an article on "Baptism for Remission ' from the pen of Bro. James Vernon. The article attracted considerable attention on account of the peculiar theory advocated by the writer and his estimate of the utterances of some of the writers and preachers of the reformation. He says in substance that some of the preachers and writers of the Christian Church teach that moral guilt is erased from the soul in the physical act of baptism, or else that "they have been most singularly unfortunate in the use of terms." He then proceeds to give his "view" of the subject in the following paragraph: "The sinner must publicly confess his sin renounce and f jrsake the same, and in a proper manner entreat the divine forgiveness. This is repentance. Anything short of this never was and never can be. On condition of this repentance God in every age has forgiven the sinner—that is, he has put away moral guilt from that...

6 Is the Old Testament Trustworthy ? BY HARKY MINNICK; This is a question not raised by us to discuss, but is already up for discussion. Neither is it a question of authorship. A book may be trustworthy when the author is unknown, and may be untrustworthy when the author is known. Our query is: Can we trust in the trustworthiness of the Old Testament ? Even the careless reader knows that the Old Testament has been doubted, and even denied. We do not desire to belong to the class that trembles when the Bible is assailed, neither to the class who, without proper investigation, declares all is secure. Ignorance may afford a refuge to the lazy or superstitious, but not for the zealous Christian. When the majority of Christians hear of deists, agnostics, infidels, they view theia as enemies to God. They look upon them with a feeling of pity mingled with fear. Many Christians are not versed in the reasonings of these doubters of God, and they are wise in refusing to read their productions...

June 26,1RQ0. Ifamtiij (&ivcle. The Puulc Solved. Around a table strewed with books and toys There sat a group of merry, noisy boys, Half battling to display, with fingers swift A puzzle in a box—their father's gift. With eager haste the lid is pulled asideDelighted with the game, as jet untried, The box is searched, and busy hands begin To seize npon the pieces packed within; Each youngster confident of being able To range the fragments scattered on the table Into a pattern perfectly combined, Such as the wise artificer designed. But soon impatience deems the process slow; Tempers are chafed and difficulties grow; "I'm sure," shouts Tom, "that piece should fit in there." "It won't, then," Dick retorts with snappish air. "This bit's too short," pouts Jack, "and that's too long." "I'm certain," jtrumbles Bill, wrong." Then Jack seeks help from Tom—Dick strives with Bill. Bed-time is near—the puzzle puzzling still. At length, when concord and content have fled, "Let us ask...

8 <£« pi* Column* You must live each day atyour vefv best; The work of the world is done by few, God asks that a part be done by you. Say oft of theyears as they pass from sigh t "This, this is life, with its golden store; I shall have it once, but it comes no more." Have a purpose, and do with your utmost might; You will finish your work on the other side, When you wake in His likeness satisfied. Be not simply good; be good for something. Every day is a little life, and our whole life is but a day repeated. An endless significance lies in work. In idleness alone is there perpetual despair. Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. For the real upbuilding of character conflict is better than peace and work better than ease. So be comforted, dear sister, whose whole life is a struggle and whose existence is toil. • • • » A young mother in a sister church, with her own two dimpled darlings, started a band in her own housS.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Xwo HemUplieres. * _____ BY GEORGE T. SMART. During the past week the International Prisons Congress has been in session in St. Petersburg. It seems very appropriate that in a country which has been shown to have a very defective prison system such a congress should be held. The resolutions adopted show a wise discrimination and much practical knowledge on this most perplexing subject. The resolutions cover the ground of the necessity of extradition between nations and the embodiment to the principle in all international treaties; the need of organised societies to assist discharged prisoners; the need of the action of charitable bodies being brought into general agreement, and that inebriety, accompanied by disor derly conduct, should be punishable ; that sellers of alcohol; should be responsible for crimes resulting from their serving l drunken men, «nd that the sale of liquors to children or on credit shomd be prohibited. The longest resolution ...

2 Studies In Sacred History. (No. VIII.) BY M. It. ItYAN. TflE EXODUS. The exodus of the children of Israel from Egypt is oiie of the most remarkable events in history. It is the only event of its kind. There have been instances of whole peoples carried off from one country to another by a stronger power. This was a favorite policy of the kings of Assyria and Babylon. Thus were the ten tribes deported, and at a later date the people of Judah. There have been instances of whole races of people liberated from bondage by some political revolution or some military success. Such was the case when Cyrus, king of Persia, overthrew the Babylonian empire and permitted the Jews to return in freedom to their own land. Such also was the case when, through the fortunes of war, four million of bondmen were set free in America. But never bef jre, never since the exodus of Israel from Egypt, have a whole race of bondmen, with all their posessions, gotten up and quitted the land of their oppression ...

SUBJECT.—The Gospel Feast and the Way Men Treat It. INTRODUCTION. —Soon after the last lesson Jesus went up to Jerusalem to the feast of dedication, but the hostility of the Jews compelled him to retire again to the region of Perea, in the neighborhood of Bethabara. On this occasion he had accepted an invitation to eat bread at the house of a Pharisee. It was the Sabbath day, and there was present a man witih the dropsy, and also many lawyers and Pharisees, who, filled with envy and jealousy, watched him to nee what he would do with the palsied man. It is probable that the whole thing—the invitation and the presence of the sick man—was a snare in which they hoped to entrap Jesus. If so...

July 3,1890. Sifting* BY CHAS. 8. LONG. Dear Bro. Smart— r have read your recent letter addressed to me in the Missionary, and feel it ray duty to offer a word in reply. First, I want to say that I always read "In Two Hemispheres" with pleasure and profit, finding much to commend and little to censure. Second, it was not my ox that was gored in your recent critcism, and I only noticed it because my attention was specially called to it by complaints of others. I have the kindliest feelings towards the "Hemisphere" man, and wish you •success in every good word and work. # # * Socrates, who lived four hundred years before Christ, evident ly knew something about the evils of intemperance, heathen philosopher as he was. He said of it: "Doth it not rob us of our reason, that chief excellence of man, and excite us to commit the very greatest crime? Can he who is immersed in false pleasures find time to think of those things that are useful ? Or, if he could, is not his judgment so conquere...

We have waited patiently to hear from him further on this important and interesting subject. He takes a practical, common-sense view ot a subject so frequently brought to our attention by writers and speakers. It will well pay the reader to refer agaiu to the article and give it a careful perusal. Note well the modest prudence of the language used and the encouragement given to those who have undertaken or may enter upon this good work. Declining for the present to dwell upon the Scripture qualitica tions, he labots to cheer and encourage the humble, modest, unassuming, uuseltish elder who is constantly laboring for the best interest of the flock by words and actions. He kindly reminds them that none know and fully realize their imperfections more than themselves; that comparatively ...

JULY 3, ♦•Old Aunt Venus." BY E. n. BAG BY. Preachers and others who have visited the home of Sister Maria •Curtis, near Lebanon church, Warwick county, will remember her aged cook, Aunt Venus. This faithful servant died a few years ago, haviug lived in this neighborhood for more than a huu<]red years. Her exact age could not bedetermined with certainty, but from some reliable data her years must have outnumbered those of a century. Her religions •experience was a somewhat remarkable one. Notwithstanding the many great revivals she attended and the large number of her own race she . had seen converted, she never made a profession of religion until about six months before she died. She had a quick temper and a sharp tongue, and the "triflin' niggers who came looliu' 'round her" were sure to receive a merciless lashing from her unruly member. "You go byhyar singin' and prayin' and zortin'," she would say to the young converts, "and soon's dark comes you'll be 'round somebod...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The last act of a terrible tragedy took place at Dunbar, Penn., on July 2nd. It was the return of the rescuing party from the Hill Farm mine with certain intelligence that the imprisoned miners were undoubtedly dead. The cessation of further effort ends the greatest attempt at rescue that Western Pennsylvania has seen. Human woe bears a blacker tinge perhaps when it takes on its shape of a catastrophe in the coal fields; but scarcely can human courage appear so noble as that of those men who are willing to descend into the pit after an explosion. Black faces may be worn by men of brave endeavor; very often, indeed, the black face comes because of the brave endeavor. The photograph of a benefactor of the race—a genius —will most likely be furrowed and lined —a veritable map of the campaigns through which be has Sassed —while a picture of one of ew York's four hundred may be, smooth and placid. The deadly grip of ...

The writer is a product of the wild West who, alter having breathed the atmosphere of the blue-grass country, and having preached lor a time in Missouri, was moved to come east and develop his theology under the influence of the Yale spirit of freedom in the search for truth.
