July 10,1890. The Girl at Home and Abroad. There are many girls among our readers who wish to cultivate sweet voices, to speak correctly and in good taste, to dress becomingly and modestly, and fulfill the graces of a charming womanhood. To such we commend the following observations from the Christian Union and North American Review: At this season every year hundreds of girls leave schools and colleges and enter the social world. The college graduate is usually old enough, and has received mental training that will prevent her doing such foolish and thoughtless things as girls younger and with less serious training are apt to do. A girl of twenty-two who makes her entrance into the social world —and most college graduates are at least that old—must be innately vulgar if she offends the sense of propriety. But the graduate of the schools —especially the fashionable schools—are usually eighteen or younger, and unless they have grown up under wise and educated mothers they frequently ...

July 10,1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. 8. LONG. The Baltimore Baptist is a fearless opponent of Catholicism, and does not hesitate to show up the dangers which threaten the perpetuitv of free institutions in our country. For many years the Roman Catholics have been making raids upon the treasury of the United States, and millions of dollars of the people's money has been paid for the propagation of a system which is striking directly at the foundation of civil and religious liberty. Here are some extracts from the report of the secretary of the Baptist Home Mission Society and published in the above-named paper of recent date: "Last year there was given to the Roman Catholics for Indian education $336,000. They •demanded from the Commissioner of Indian Affairs $44,000 more, making a total of over $400,000. The request was denied, and the commissioner announced that he would not extend the contract system, and would make no contracts with new schools. On this the Catholics tried to defeat ...

-6 Studies In Sacred History. (No, IX.) BY M. B. HYAN. A NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP. The story of Israel's bondage in Egypt has been familiar to us from our childhood. Our mothers took us upon their knees and told us about the wicked Egyptians, the toiling, suffering Israelites, the babe in the ark of bulrushes, the pathway through the sea, the drowning warriore. The preacher has painted the picture of the bondage and the exodus before our mind's eye, and told us that the one was a type of man's slavery to sin, the other of his redemption, and as we have listened to this story and read it for ourselves we have felt the flash of indignation and the throb of pity as we thought of the injustice and cruelty of the Egyptians on the one hand, and of the suffering of the Hebrews on the other. Is it not possible that this phase of the subject has been so constantly before us that we have lost sight of another phase of it that is of great significance? Israel's stay in Egypt was not all spent i...

And then we grumble and mourn and say That our school is so tiresome and weary, ... .... And we ask for a long, bright holiday That will banish our lessons dreary. But what is it Sod is trying to treach? Is it patience, or faith, or kindness? Is the lesson really bejond our reach, Or made hard through our willful blindness? If we were in earnest and tried to learn, If our listless study we mended, Who knows but our holiday we would earn, And our school days be gladly ended ? Who knows but we make our lessons long, And hinder their meaning from reaching The hearts that would be full of joyous song If we knew what our God was teaching?

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. Letter from Omaha. by w. h. rogehs. A little cyclone literature included in my last letter prompts me to add a few words concerning Western cyclones at the beginning of this one. The cyclones of the West do not add one hundredth part of one per cent, to the general liability to injury or death by accident or calamity. Notwithstanding cyclones, your chances for safety and long life are as good in the West as in the East. There were eighty deaths by buggy accidents in New York city last' year. There were less than fifty lives lost by storms or cyclones in the whole State of Illinois last year. It would be as sensible to refuse to live in. New York city on account of buggy accidents as to refuse to live in Illinois because of cyclones. There is not a spot in the whole Western country where I would refuse to pitch my tent because of cyclones. A family who had formerly lived in Kentucky moved out to Kansas, and then on account of their fear of cyclones mov...

2 Studies In Sacred History. (No. X.) BY M. B. UYAN. ______ • A NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP. (Continued.) . Some one has expressed the thought that no man is uninfluenced by his age and his surroundings. This .is evidently true. No matter how independent a man may be in character he will be influenced, unconsciously it may be, but nevertheless Burely, by the people with whom he mingles and the locality in which he lives. This is doubtless as true of peoples as of individuals. It is exemplified in all nations, from China, which has hitherto lived a hermit life and finds itself a thousand years behind the times, to America, the asylum for the oppressed of all nations, which leads the world in material achievements. Israel in Egypt could have been no exception to the rule, and when we remember that this was the case of a simple shepherd tribe, going from the uneventful quiet of a pastoral life into the whirl of an intense national existence, and coming into contact with, the multiplied age...

July 17,1890. jfamtln (jTtrctg* How My Boy Went Down. It was Dot od the field of battle, It was not with a ship at sea, But a fate far worse than either, That stole him away from me. •Twas the death in the ruby wine-cup, That the reason and senses drown; He drank the alluring poison, And thus my boy went downDown from the heights of manhood To the depths of disgrace and sin; Down to a worthless being. From the hope of what might have been. For the brand of a beast besotted, He bartered his manhood s crown; Through the gate of a sinful pleasure My poor, weak boy went down. •Tis only the same old story, That mothers so often tell With accents of infinite sadness Like the tones of a funeral-bell. But I never once thought when I heard it I should learn all its meaning myself; I thought he'd be true to his mother; I thought he'd be true to himself. But alas for my hopes all delusion ! Alas for his youthful pride! Alas! Who are safe when danger Is open on every side ? O can nothing destro...

July 17,1890. Sittings. by chas. s. long. Some writer has quaintly said: "When a founder has cast a bell he does not presently fix it in the steeple, but tries it with his hammer, and beats it upon every side to see if there be any flaw in it. So Christ doth not presently, ' after he has converted a man, convey him to heaven; but suffers him first to be beaten upon by many temptations, and then exalts him to his crown." The experience of every Christian verifies the truth o( this illustration. Unalloyed happiness is not the lot of mortals here below, and never has been since the Sates of Eden closed against our ret parents. Even our Saviour was not exempt from sorrow and suffering, and has well been called the "Man of Sorrows." Temptations abound and they beset us on every hand, and, for some wise purpose, Christians are not exempt from this common heritage of our race. It is the result of our fallen condition. But sorrow, affliction, and temptation are not an unmixed evil. When the...

6 Gordon and Grady. We here give a few brief extracts from the brilliant oration of Senator Gordon, of Georgia, which he delivered at the late commencement at the University of Virginia. Mr. Gordon said: Laws against bribery—laws for the greater secrecy or publicity of the ballot—laws of whatever nature the wit or wisdom of man may fashion or devise will avail us nothing unless sustained by a public conscience, lifted to the unfaltering faith that patriotism is a better investment for peace and happiness than money, and that a pure ballot, uncorrupted and inviolate, is worth more to him who casts it than a prince's ramson. That was the faith of the Old South—and in that faith, my countrymen, by every memory that enables, and every hope that cheers humanity, let us "look at the old paths and stand upon the ancient ways." The recent marvellous material advance of the South comprises the most glowing; page of our industrial story. She is leaping to the front with giant strides, and it ...

JULY 17,18*0. q ivb Water to Infants.—A distinguished children's doctor believes, from his practice, that infante generally, whether brought up at the breast or artificially, are not supplied with sufficient water, the fluid portion of their food being quickly taken up and leaving the solid too thick to be easily digested. In warm, dry weather, healthy babies will take water every hour with advantage, and their frequent fretfulness and rise of temperature are often directly due to their not having it. A free supply of water and restricting the frequency of nursing have been found at the nursery to be a most effectual check in casts of incipient fever, a diminished rate of mortality and marked reduction in the number of gastric and intestinal complaints being attributed to this cause. In teethcutting, water soothes the gums, and frequently stops the fretting and restlessness universal in children at this period. —New York Ledger.. Don't think because you put your woolens away in a ti...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BV GEORGE T. SMART. The period of violent change and excitement lately inaugurated in Japan is bearing the fruit usual to such conditionsdisappointment. Neither a nation nor an individual in letting go the old to stretch after the new gets all the expected. Human liberty, contentment, and progress are only to be overtaken on the tortoise plan, and not on the system of the swiftspeeding hare. During the last few years Japan has been tearing its traditions to tatters, with the result, so far, that it absolutely refuses to accept of the traditions of other people. The vacuum, however, insists on being filled, and what an opportunity there is to pour in the oil and wine of truth! As symptoms of the mental state of the Japanese, we find that they are now offering insults to foreigners, and especially missionaries, although until recently nothing was too good for the western introducers of ideas. To add to the complications of this tryin...

2 James Vernon on Remission Beloved Missionary,—l wrote an article containing some personalities, and got a reply in kindf and neither of .the articles does their respective writers any large amount of credit. Bro. Munnell's idea is the true one, and so all that is personal iu this matter ends so far as I am concerned. I had supposed that no reasonable person would imagine that I quoted Luke iii: 3; Acts ii: 38; Acts xxii: 16, in proof of my position. I Bimply quoted them in order to show that my theory explained them, and not to find either "premises or conclusion" in them. I am now asked "how baptism can in any sense or manner be for the remission of sins already remitted?" I think that it would have been a little more proper to have asked me that questiou before publishing to the world that my theory did not have a "single scriptural leg to stand on." I am given the same justice which Macaulay says England gave Lord Byron, viz : "First the execution, then the trial, and last of a...

July 24,1890. D. g. §. «. e. Tooic for the week: Temperance. "He that overcometh " «(1 John v: 4-5; Rom. xii: 2-3; Rev. ii: 7? Rev. in: Sl 10, 11, 12, 21.) This is one of the grandest movements the Church of Christ has ever seen. It supplies what has been needed for many years, and fills the gap between the Sunday-school and the church—a period in which, as many know, our young men stray off and get into paihs from which many never return, and our young ladies become fascinated with the gaieties and frivolities of the ball-room. To see, as your writer did, the boys and girls early in their teens get up and come out boldly on the Lord's side in a prayer-meeting composed of the young and middle-aged people, by reading a passage from the blessed Bible, is something to make the heart of any Christian leap for joy. The influence for good which goes out from such a meeting can not be overestimated, and it will be a helper and a guide to many others, as well as to the speaker himself. "Let...

TlME.—December, A. D. 29; the same time as the last lesson. PLACE.—Perea, beyond Jordan. SUBJECT.—The Wanderer and His Return. INTRODUCTION.—By common consent this parable has been denominated the pearl of parables. By it our Savior undoubtedly intended to justify bis course in receiving publicans and sinners—a sharp but compassionate reproof of the pride and self-righteousness of the Pharisees (as depicted in the character of the elder brother); but especially is it a beautiful portrayal of that divine love and compassion which ever animates the heart of God toward sinners, and of the eager readiness of God to receive back into his love and uttermost favor those sinners who turn from their worst wretchedness and come to him. In the two preceding parables we have the divine work in the re...
