GOLDEN TEXT.—He that humhkth himselt shall be exalted. —Luke xviii: 14. TlME.—March, A. D. 30; soon after the last lesson. PLACE.—On the way to Jerusalem, between Samaria and Galilee, or in the Jordan valley. SUBJECT.—Effectual Prayer. INTRODUCTION.—Soon after thelast lesson, while still on his way to Jerusalem, in response to a question of the Pharisees "when the kingdom of God should come," Jesus gave them warnings and instructions as to his coming, and especially as to the need of being always prepared. He naturally turns to the subject of prayer as a means of preparation. In his teachings on this subject of prayer he uses two parables—the unjust judge and the Pharisee and the publican. As in the parable of the unjust steward, Christ here illustrates by contraflt. The argument is, If an unjust judge can be moved to do right by importunity, sh...

August 14,1890. Slftlnga. BY CHAB. S. L6NG. The fighting editor of theCAraticin has on his war-paint and is dealing sturdy blows against his Satanic Majesty, who does not regard lines of demarcation and who has gotjpn over into forbidden pastures. In his editorial the editor talks about "The Devil in the Church." It is not the devil in the churches, but the devil in the Church! _In his judgment there is "either a •church devil in politics or a political devil in the Church. He «ays the secular papers affirm with vehemence that politics are •corrupt; they speak of the filthy pool of politics, the rottenness of this party and the wickedness of that party. He -thinks these papers must be mistaken, and that there can be no such corruption in politics, and especially in the politics of Arkansas. Now listen to his reason for this conclusion: "Because the leaders are all mem•bers of the church in good standing and full fellowship. * * The politicians of this State are all members of the ch...

6 u* y. c. Subject forweek commencing Ang, 17. The Cost of Being a Christian and the Cost of Mot Being a Christian. Luke xiv: 25-33. . References: Deut. xiii: 611; Matt, x: 37; 11 Tim. Hi: 12; Acts xiv: 22. The question of how to bring up young Christians to lives of faithfulness and usefulness has long been one that has given botu pastors and the church much anxious thought. Too often have young persons been brought into the church and allowed to drift along without being brought into active church work until they have drifted away from the church entirely. The"organization of the Christian Endeavor movement has given a practical solution of this difficulty, and now all over our land, through the influence of this movement, young Christians are coming to the front in church work. The history of this movement in Richmond has been an interesting one. Starting in Seventhstreet church a little more than a year ago with a society of about thirty members, it has largely increased its mem...

August 14,1890. £ antily ©tvcle* A LcMon. A dying buttercup cried to the sun: "What am I good for? What have I done To make life worth the living ? You hang aloft in the great blue sky, Lighting the world with your one big eye, Ana you—you are always giving. But 1 bloom here in the meadow grass; The babies smile on me as they pass. But my life will soon be done, alas ! And what was the use of living !" The sun looked down on the little sun That shone in the grass; it was only one Among a great many others. Said he: "It is wrong to thus despair. The great All-Father placed you there, You and your little brothers; He meant you should blossom there in the grass For the babies to smile on as they pass, Or to be in the bunches that each small lass Carries to tired mothers.

8 STu-pmin Ulovti. A Trip to Valley District Co-operation. _____ • The writer left home Wednesday niftht at 8:30 by the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, and after passing through the loveliest part of Virginia, arrived at Rtrasburg on Thursday morning. After a short delay the convention was called -to order, and the morning hour was spent in a very enjoyable praise service. When the time arrived for dinner the convention adjourned until 2 p. m., at which time it would meet for regular business. Promptly at the hour set the convention assembled, and proceeded to business in a most business like manner. It is very gratifying to attend a convention in a district so well oreanized. It would do all good to be at these conventions, for in this way they can gather new ideas and see what we all need to malte good our hold on our fellow-men in bringing them to Christ. The first evening was spent in organizing, and the regular work was begun on Frid.ay morning and continued through Saturday. A g...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. How to U*e. Live for an end; pass not thy days in dreams! An aimless life—a ship without a helmIs but the sport of varying winds and streams, Which rocks shall wreck and billows overwhelm. Live for a noble life —one to make life A grand and glorious thing, to bless, not blight Thy brother who shall follow in earth's strife The standard thou shalt raise of wrong or right. Live for that noble end all earnestly, Press stoutly forward to thy chosen goal: So shalt thou gain it, and bear on with thee Some weaker one, some less determined soul. —Philip Burroughs Strong. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The restless reaper has been all too busy during the last few days. The inevitable may be fought off for a longer or shorter time, but at last thelerryman presses his errand and the summonsed thinks to obey.

A story is told that on one occasion during the wars in India between the British and native tribes several English officers had been taken captive by one of the tribes. A native officer brought the fetters to bind them, and proceeded to do this. As he was about to place them on a voung officer, who was badly bleeding from the wound received in battle, a gray-haired officer remarked to the native: "You are not going to put them on him? "Yes," replied he; "there are just as many pairs of fetters «s there are captives, and every pair must be worn." "Then put two pair on me," remarked the officer. Just so has Christ worn the fetters for poor, sin-burdened man....

The details, as related by each of the three evangelists, differ slightly, but the substance is the same.

August 21,1890. gifttngt. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. This week's "Sittings" finds the writer and his wife enjoying the cool mountain breeze at the All-Healing Springs, amidst the mountains of Southwest Virginia. These justly celebrated springs are located in Craig county, Va., about twelve miles west of New Castle, and it is a delightful place in which to recuperate one's wasted energies and gather strength for the arduous duties of life. As the springs are about thirty miles from the nearest railroad station, only those who are in search of health find their way hither, but when the contemplated railroad from Eagle Rock, on the Richmond and Alleghany, to New Castle is completed, and the vast resources of this section are opened up, this will no doubt ■become one of Virginia's most popular summer resorts. At this time almost everything here is modelled after the primitive order, and nature is largely unadorned, but the medicinal •qualities of the waters are not excelled by any mineral spring...

6 The Peace of God. There is a peace thy people know. And all the world despise, Yet sweeter 'tis than aught below, 'Tie pure and satisfies. , It comes from thee, dear bounteous Lord, Calm, blessed like thine own, It comes to those who trust thy Word, And lean on Christ alone. <' It comes to those thy Spirit lores, Whose sins he shows forgiven; Whose hearts to faith and love be moves, And seals them heirs of heaven. It comes, free as the Bumbeam's light, When o'er the world it flies; Calm, as the summer morning brigh When earth in beauty lies. O teach me, Lord, to tr-st in thee, And on thy Christ to rest; And give that perfect peace to me, Shed swt,. j through my breast. —Selected. Nebraska Notes. BY CHAS. HAZELRIGG. Bro.

August 21,1890 What Does It natter? •"It matters little where I was born, Or if «y parents were rich or poor; "Whether they shrank at the cold, world's scorn, Or walked in the pride of wealth secure; But whether I live an honest man, And hold my integrity firm in my clutch, -I tell you, my brother, plain as I can, It matters much. "It matters little where be my grave, If on the land, or in the sea; By purling brook, or 'neath stormy wave, It matters little or naught to me; But whether the angel of death comes down, And marks my brow with a loving touch, As the one who shall wear the victor's crown, It matters much. —Selected.

If you do not wish for His kingdom do not pray for it; but if you do, you must do more than pray for it—you must work for it. So says John Ruskin. We pray for it daily in our private devotions and in our auxiliary meetings (when, alas! it is often the only brief missionary prayer we have), but how many of us are laboring for it with all our strength? Do we ever think what it means—what grace and glory and blessedness and peace; what safety and happiness and rest—the heathen converted, the sinner rescued, the church united, Christian union and oneness with Christ a glad reality, and sin and sorrow forever banished from the earth ? ''The kingdom of God," says the apostle, "is not meat and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost." For this end are the missionary women of our land working. Can one single o...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. In 1882 a storm of anti-Semitic feeling swept over the southern {art of the empire of the Czar. n the month of May of that year some very severe laws were enacted against those religious bodies which did not give allegiance to the Greek Church. Although these edicts were levelled ostensibly against all heterodox bodies, they were meant in especial for the Jews. Hitherto these laws have been a dead letter, but now it is proposed to carry them out. Although expulsion is not the name given to the penalties inflicted, this is in reality what they amount to. No ownership of the land, no engagement in agricultural pursuits, no entrance into any of the liberal professions, and no service in the army, all of which walls of partition make life little else to the poor Jews than an imprisonment without the name. Lutherans and Catholics ai e included in the persecution, but it is quite probable that the popular fury will ex...

2 CoTCtouinesg-No. 11. BY F. M. GREEN*. The universality of the sin is stated by Paul in 1 Cor. v: 10: I have written to you in the letter not to associate with lewd persons—yet without the least allusion to the lewd, or the covetous, or the extortioners, or the idolaters of this world —lor then you must "go out of the world" to get out of their company. But in the church, as well as out of the church, is this terrible disease found; hence, do not associate with any one professing to be a brother if he is lewd, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner —with such a one do not even eat. I Cor. vi: 10: "Be not deceived ; neither lewd persons * * * * nor covetous Bhall iuherit the kingdom of God." Eph. v: 5: "He [the covetous] has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God." Let no man deceive you with vain words. (II Peter ii: 14.) The apostle Peter speaks of men who have a "heart which they have exercised with covetous practices." Moses was t...

6 A Queen's Prescription. BY MYRA PERCY. "What is the matter, Alice?" asked Mrs. Temple. "Your face is flushed and you seem to have no appetite." "There is nothing the matter ■with me, mother," replied Alice, somewhat petulantly. "I don't feel well, that's all." "If you don't feel well you must feel ill," persisted the mother, "and I must insist ou your seeing Dr. Campus." "I think Alice ought to see the Queen of Sweden's doctor," remarked Aunt Ellen, who was making a tidy in her big arm chair. Who is the Queen of Sweden's doctor?" asked Alice in surprise. "Does he live here?" "Helives in Sweden, I believe," answered Aunt Ellen, with one of her queer smiles, and his name is Metzger." Alice looked at her aunt in a puzzled way for a moment, and then broke into a laugh. "Is it a story you want to tell?" she asked, interested at once. Aunt Ellen, sixty years old, but with the face and figure of forty, was the life of tbe Temple household, and always had some quaint and interesting anecd...
