July 24,1890 Georgia Letter. BY T. M. FOSTER. I was in Conyers the fifth Lord's-day and preached morning and evening to very good congregations. It had been about two years since any one had preached for them. Whether the church or the preachers are to.blame for this I will not say; but it is a demonstrated fact that a church in a place like Conyers, with a small membership, must have assistance or they can't succeed. Several years ago we bought the old Presbyterian house of worship; but it is not well located—two far from the centre of the churchfoing people. So the brethren ave decided to sell it and invest the money in a central lot or in a house somewhere else. The property will readily bring what it cost us, so we will lose nothing by this investment. Conyers is an important point and should be held, but it can't be done, it seems, without a better location and help to sustain a good man to labor among them. A few years ago the brethren in Georgia organized more new churches th...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The papers published lately on the Behring sea difficulty do not show much advance towards a settlement. Generally it seems that the Canadian press is satisfied with Salisbury's position on the question since he has been persuaded to move; but the press of this country differs about Mr. Blaine's wisdom in the position he has taken. Whatever may be the historical verdict on the correspondence —and none other is likely to be the just one—it is certain that the delay of settlement is injurious.. Great nations, with interests interwoven, cannot afford to dispute about such matters. Statesmanship, as the Boston Herald sagely remarks, consists not only of taking, but of giving also, and he is wise who remembers this. It will be a glad day for both countries interested in the matter when this fishery dispute is settled. If the United States has sole right to the fishery of Behring's sea, the sooner such right is acknow...

2 Missouri Christian Lectureship. BY F. D. POWER. A rush between Sundays through six States—twenty-two hundred miles travel—and the delivery of three lectures, with the thermometer anywhere between ninety-six and one hundred and six, was my last week's performance. The lectureship is an institution of six years of of age among the Disciples of Missouri. As this .religious people numbers 102,000 in that State, they can afford such a school for higher culture. Its purpose is to bring together the preachers and teachers for the critical examination of difficult questions in religion and philosophy that may be agitating the minds of men. It offers a forum for free and full discussion of the largest themes and courageously grapples with problems that challenge investigation on the part of the ablest thinkers. People in the most ordinary walks of life will think along the lines of what is termed "advanced thought," and their religious teachers must be prepared to deal with their difficult...

Next follows the parable of Lazarus and the rich man, the subject of our last lesson, which is intimately connected with that of the unjust steward, and which, like it, is a...

July 31,1890. Siftinga. BY CHAS. 8. LONG. The Franklin Co-operation was held last week with the Liberty church, in Pittsylvania county. The eight or nine churches in the district were represented by delegates, and the local attendance was quite large. L. A. Cutler, A. A. Ferguson, W. R. Motley, T. J. Stone, A. F. Ramsey, and the writer constituted the preaching force. J. L. Hill represented the State society and the Missionary Widely. Major Scruggs, of Chatham, presided with grace and dignity. T. J. Stone is the district evangelist, and his report covered six months'labor in that large field and showed in many respects a very encouraging result. Over fifty persons had been added to the different congregations and a hew congregation had been set in order and admitted into the co-operation. It is a great mistake not to keep Bro. Stone constantly engaged in preaching. Not only ought his time to be fully employed, but he should be furnished with a co laborer at the earliest practicable ...

6 Christians in Summer Vacations. Dr. Theodore L. Cuyler, in the Independent of July 3d, utters some timely truths on the subject of "Christians in Summer Vacations." We quote a few sentences as follows : Church-members have their duties to perform while away for recreation as truly as their pastors have. All times of "layingoff," whether during the evenings of winter or the days of summer vacations, bring with them a peculiar temptation to lay off the sense of religious responsibility likewise. To serve God during the working-hours of life seems a plain duty, but to serve God during hours of rest or play or recreation is not always quite so obvious. Accordingly there are too many church-members who "slip their cables" and drift off into loose ways of behaving when they are away from their own homes and churches. I once observed —while driving to a country church—that a large number of city boarders were lounging upon the piazzas and in the door-yards of most of the farm-houses, and...

July 31,1890. family Circle* A Builder's Lewon. "How shall I a habit break?" As yon did that habit make; As you gathered you must lose, As you yielded now refuse. Thread by thread the strands we twist Till they bind us neck and wrist; Thread by thread the patient hand Must untwine ere free we stand. As we builded stone by stone, We must toil unhelped, alone, Till the wall is overthrown. But, remember, as we try Lighter every test goes by: Wading in, the stream grows deep Toward the centre's downward sweep; Backward turn, each step ashore Shallower is than that before. Ah, the precious years we waste Levelling what we raised in baste, Doing what must be undone Ere content or love be won! First across the gulf we cast Kite-borne threads, till lines are passed, And habit builds the bridge at last. A Sad Thing In Life.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The persistent efforts of the Louisiana State Lottery Company to obtain a foothold for the future are meeting with various receptions. We now have the satisfaction of recording a very severe condemnation of the proceedings of these gamblers in high places by the President in a recent .message to Congress. Speaking of the effects of lotteries he says "the people of all the States are debauched and defrauded, and a chief grievance is that the mails are used, which "is a prostitution of an agency only intended to serve purposes of legitimate trade and a decent social intercourse." In the message we find that the President recommends stringent amendments to the postal laws, bo that the authorities, who today are powerless in the matter, may be able to make it more difficult for these lotteries to ply their ruinous trade. In a letter accompanying the message, written by the Postmaster-General, we have indicated a spe...

2 Union of Baptists and Disciples. BY JAMES VERNON. Beloved Missionary,—l wish to say a few words on the subject of union between ourselves and the Baptists. I am moved to do this because I see that the call for a conference of representative men made by several Baptist associations has been received favorably, and will, no doubt, be responded to Now, Ido not say that no good can possibly come from such a meeting as the one proposed. I do not know enough of what God may or can do to say that. But I do give it as my opinion, baaed on past experiences, that unless there representative men pursue a different line from that pursued by those who in Ohio and Virginia have preceded them in a similar work we shall not reach the end desired. In the case referred to the Baptists told us what they believed, and we told them what we believed, and the result was simply.two human creeds —two man-made systems (asclearly bo as any that ever cursed the earth),* and each party charging the other with...

August 7,1890. Sittings. BY CHAS. S. LONG. The author of "Baptism and Remission" does not seem to be entirely satisfied that his "theory" is as comfortably and securely seated as he at first supposed, and hence his efforts to bolster it up and keep it in position. In his last effort he resorts to the "deadly parallel," and then reaches this conclusion concerning Mr. Campbell, viz: "To me the man in 'denominational fetters' is a messenger from the skies, and his utterance truth 'transparent as the light, beautiful as heaven, and as true as God.' The other man is an acute, linguistic magician—a legalistic, grammatical conjuror, parsing, defining, inferring, deducting, scattering a handful of highly painted metaphysical fireflies which some people think blot out the everlasting stars." In other words, when Mr. Campbell was a Baptist he voiced the sentiments now endorsed by my brother, and was to him a "messenger from the skies," but when he had acquired a larger knowledge of the teachi...

8 flint tt piQvfy* The writer had the pleasure of attending the Southeastern District' Co-opera-tion, which was announced to meet at Jetersvilie, Wednesday, July 30th, at 10 A. m., but on account of the slowness of the delegates in getting in there was no business transacted until Thursday morning. This idea of announcing a meeting for a certain day and hour, and then waiting a day for the delegates to arrive, is entirely wrong, for it is just as easy for all to arrange to get in at the time announced as it is to be a day late. This will have to be remedied, and the sooner the better, if it is the desire to have brethren from a distance who make their calculation to go and return at a certain time. Let all the districts that have yet to hold their meetings look to this matter, and meet at the hour announced, and it will not be long before all who intend coming will come on time. Try it and be convinced. Collections from July 30th to August 6th: Walnut Springs flO 00 Ephesus 5 00 E.A...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. Although the'schools of the prophets are an abolished institution, the prophetical office does not seem in anywise defunct. The mantle of Elijah falls upon some one or other, fitly or otherwise, and the listening ear of mankind receives that which makes the heart beat faster with a pulsing of passionate joy or a throbbing of horrible fear. To the man who looks through the horn spectacles of pessimism evil things loom up with the added size of obscurity, and when such a man is a prophet, either real or imagined, his visions are terrible, in their imagery. Such seems to be the cast of the horoscope of Professor Buchanan, a writer in the August number of the Arena. "Take it all in all," says the Montreal Star, "it is the most terrific prophecy that has been made since the Apocalypse was written." The writer begins by quoting public men upon the questions of the day, such quotations being of a very gloomy character,...

2 Lay up Treasures In Heaven. BY W. O. MOORE. "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, for where your treasure is there will your heart be also." Mat. vi: 19-20. The foregoing words are clear and definite. Christ does not say, lay up some treasures on earth and some treasures in heaven. He does not say, lay up some treasures on earth and many treasures in heaven. He positively forbids laying up of treasures on earth.* Do treasures mean possessions? If they do, then the church as well as the world has a desire, an ambition, an effort that is in opposition to the plain teachings of the Master. There are many Christians who profess to possess the spirit of godliness, and who seem actuated with an intense desire to glorify God, to edify saints, and to world who are daily toiling for an increase of wealth. What shall be our apology for such when we compare their course of life with the utterances of him who said, "Lay not up for your...
