August 28, 1890. family f&ivcle* Bits. Pryam's Curiosity. Mrs. Pryam was a slave to her curiosity. She was always wanting to know things it did not concern her to know. She spent much time in useless wonderings about this and about that. She wondered what her neighbors had in the bundles «he saw them carrying home. She wondered what they had for dinner; how much Mr. Smith's «alary was a year, and whether or not the Browns had paid for their handsome furniture. Mrs. Pryam Was also a woman ot ideas. She had an idea that Mr. and Mrs. Jones didn't live happily together. She didn't know, but sne "rather thought" that the Greens were behind with their rent, and that the Blacks lived beyond their means. The arrival of a stranger in the neighborhood gave Mrs. Pryam rich food for wonderment, and she spent much of her time in wondering who he was, where he came from, where he was going, what he wanted, and if he had a family. If nothing definite could be learned, she was apt to fa...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. A lengthy appeal to ministers is published in the last issue of the New York Weekly Witness. The appeal is that they break through the customs of the sermon. It is urged that the annual vacation of the preacher is distasteful to the congregation, especially to those who work daily for their living, with no opportunity of holidays beyond an occasional day. This, doubtless, is true. But when the Witness gives as a reason for the need of these annual rests the wearing nature of the weekly sermon, it is, perhaps, a question mooted rather than settled. To different men different things apply with force. With one sermonizing is the hardship; another, the continued calling, in many cases profitless; another, the many calls on his time by outside affairs which must in no wise be neglected. It is true, the formal sermon has its difficult points, but we imagine that the informal sermon is most trying to preacher and congr...

2 CoTetonanew-No. 111. BY F. M. GREEN. To an ordinary observer the charge of covetousness could only be alleged against a few individuals, but Jesus tracked it through the most unsuspected windings, laid open some of its moßt concealed operations, and "showed that, like the elemental fire, it is not only present where it is grossly visible, but that it is all-pervading and co-extensive with human depravity." Like the trump of God, he raises his voice and exclaims: "What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" Cipher out this problem, you rich men, and give the result if you can. The gains of covetousness have clotned and feasted you, while Lazarus, all covered with sores, has perished at your gate. To the plea for aid which is put up by the rich man from the place of torment there comes the reply from the world's wisest speaker: "You had your good things in this life"—woe, wailing, damnation are your eternal portion. He listens to the soliloquy of th...

September 4,1890. International Snniay-Scliool Lessons FOR 1890. THIRD QUARTER. Lesson XI: September 14. Parable of tbe Pounds. Luke xix: 11-27. GOLDEN TEXT. — Unto every one which hath ahull be given.—hake xix: 26. TIME.—The last of March, A. D. 30; probably the same day with the last lesson. PLACE.—Jericho, at the house of Zaccheus. INTRODUCTION.—What our Lord said in verse ten of our last lesson, "The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost," seemed to have called forth from his hearers some remarks which suggested the parable which forms the subject of our lesson to-day. The disciples seemed still to entertain the hope of an earthly and temporal kingdom, to be immediately established, and this was the general popular conception. The explanation of his mission seemed somewhat to confuse them, and the parable was intended to correct the errors in the minds of the people, and perhaps of the disciples as well, and to set them right as to tbe true nature of his mis...

September 4,1890. Sittings. ' BY CHAS. S. LONG. The co-operation held in Pulaski City laet week was, in all Erobability, the best one ever eld in the New River district. The success of the meeting was due largely to the untiring efforts of Bro. W. H. Book, pastor of the Pulaski church, who was instant in season and out of season in getting everything in readiness for a good meeting. Bro. Cutler and myself remained over Sunday, and a busy day we had. There was Sunday-school in the morning and preaching at eleven o'clock, communion services at half past two p. m., and a lecture before the Sunday-schools of the Christian and Methodist churches, in the house of tbe latter, at half past three, Bro. D. A. Am men being the lecturer, and preaching at eight o'clock p. m.

6 H. <£♦ Topic for week beginning September 7. Laborers—Our 'Work—lts Nature—Rules for SuccessRewards. II COR. VI: 1-18. References: I Cor. in: 9; II Cor. v:20: Rom. xir: 13; I Cor. viii: 9-13; Matt, xxir: 45-47; Matt, xxv: 21; I Cor. v: 9-11; II Cor. vii: 1. That we are laborers no one can doubt, for in I Cor. vi: 20 we find these words: "For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." If a person or thing has been bought it is the property of the purchaser. As the property or disciples of Christ we are called upon to Bpend our best efforts in his behalf if we would be faithful servants. That there is a different nature of work for each we can readily see by reading Rom. xii: 6-8, and for many good rules for success the remainder of this chapter is full. To succeed in any line of work or study we must conform to certain rules, and any Christian who will try to work or live without the rules found in the Word of Go...

September 4,189 ft family QLivcle* getmon by the Wayside. BY A. W. CONNER. "THORNS." As I walked along the shady path of a beautiful woodland my barefooted boy played in and out of the path before me. The beauties and music of nature inspired him with happiness. Now he plied me with questions, and before I could answer them he ran forward and joined the music of his laugh with the songs of the birds. 0 happy childhood, thought I, type of Eden's bliss. In .an instant the child's happiness was changed into pain. He dropped upon the ground, and cried: "O Papa! Come quick. I've hurt me." before hinr, I discovered the cause of the sudden change. A thorn that had been hidden in the grassy carpet had thrust itself into the child's tender flesh. The tears were falling rapidly when I withdrew the thorn. For awhile I held the wounded member in my hands and cheered him with words of sympathy. Looking up through his tears, the little philosopher asked: "Papa, what are thorns for; why did God ma...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. in Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. If the report is true that Ismail Pasha is dead, one of the figures of nineteenth-century events is vanished. Probably since the time of Prince Talleyrand the world has not seen such a genius for intrigue. Ismail was an intelligent, cultivated, and progressive man. To him jointly, with the French De Lesseps, we owe the Suez Canal; to him also Egypt owes much of its modernization. Alexandria, under Ismail, became an European city, with squares and boulevards and works of art. The vast debt which oppresses the fellaheen was not made lighter, but more ponderous, by the progressive Ismail. Progression is costly, especially when marching forward under a despot. With the ex-Khedive, where culture left off barbarism began. The culture was of the head rather than the heart. That was desperately wicked, and deceitful above much. Outside embellishments of Alexandrian squares and suburbs were plentifully bedaubed with huma...

2 The Successful Artist. BY J. G. WAGGONER. "I shall be satisfied when I awake in thy likeness." (Psalms xvii: 15.) The end of our profession is the likeness of God. It"is to be the masterpiece of our lives. Every touch of the brush must bring out some characteristic of him, or the stroke was a failure, and often a damage. The m aterial has much to do in the character of the artist's work. The canvass now upon the easel is as enduring as the ages. Summer's suns and winter's storms come and go, but they neither fade the colors nor wear the fabric. There is no hiding-place for it. The rocks and mountains cannot cover it from the presence of God. The true picture once rested upon that canvass. "Let us make man in our own image," said the Lord God. "In the image of God created he them." But man lost his image. For four thousand years man tried the imitation of all he cOuld find on earth and sea and sky. The imagination was filled with every conceivable thing. But it satisfied not. The a...

The first morning the devotional exercises were led by Bro. R. W. Abberly, of Lincoln. This was followed by a discussion of a topic on "Reverence for the Bible," introduced by Bro. William Sumpter, of Unadilla. ■Several participated in the discussion. The business session opened at 9 o'clock, with President J. Z. Briscoe, of Lincoln, in the chair. He delivered a short introductory address, in which he gave a brief review of the past year's work. Some had found fault because they thought that sdme parts of the State work had been neglected. But when it is remembered that the great university of the Nebraska brotherhood had been completed and a large endowment secured within the past twelve mont...

September 11,1890 family f&ivcle. Virginia Hospitality. Old Virginia has always enjoyed a reputation for hospitality, and as one of her loyal sons' I am anxious to preserve it. So that when, last week, I ascertained that several city ladies were to visit my daughter, I provided a liberal supply of table luxuries and made ready to receive them. They came to the wrong station, so I had to send /our miles instead of one. When the carriage and buggy returned with the ladies I was informed that a wagon would have to be sent for their trunks. About dark the servant returned on horseback as the ladies had forgotten to give him their checks, and he could not get their baggage. At ten o'clock, my usual hour, I retired. The visitors went to their rooms to inspect their baggage just arrived, accompanied by my wife and daughter. In about half an hour gentle footsteps were heard on the stairway and I expected my wife to enter, but she and the rest passed on, and by the jingle of keys...

This meeting was the greatest distance from the railroad of any we have attended. We left the railroad at Eggleston's depot, on New River railroad, and went twelve miles, in company with C. 8. Long, W. J. Cocke, A. A. Ferguson, and Prof. Hopwood, and we put np for the night with a kind brother, and on the morning of Friday we started again on our journey, reaching Simmoneville about 12 m. We went directly to the church, and in a very short time the convention was called to order by 8. E. Lybrook, who conducted the business in a business way. It does us all good to see good work done, and all things move on in a business-like way. This district is in good Bhape for a grand work, and we saw many iudica tions of u much better work during the coming year than ever before. We hope to see a very large delegat...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. All iter the Best. LILLA M. ALEXANDER. Secure is that soul In the midst of affliction Who sees in each sorrow the hand of his God, And knowing all things for his good, work together, Unquestioning bows 'neath each stroke of the rod; Oh! blest is that heart that when toss'd by the tempest Can cling to this hope as a bird to Its nest. And say, with a faith by each trial made stronger: ■«<The dear Father knows —It is all for the best." Each blossom of hope In onr lives may be blighted, Swept by adversity's pitiless blast; Clouds of misfortune o'trshadow our pathway. Friends of a lifetime prove false at the last; The heart may besad, and the way maybe lonely. And rough be the path by the weary feet press'd, Yet faith pleadeth ever, Oh, fail not totrusthim, "The dear Father knows—lt Is all for the best." The seed that with weeping we sowed for the Master Unqulckened, may lie where it fell by the way; Prayers that were wrung from our heart's deep...

2 Two Soldiers at Gettysburg. The armies they had ceased to fight, The night was still and dark, And many thousands on the fi,eld ■Were lying stiff and stark. The stretcher-men had come along And gathered all they could. A hundred surgeons worked that night Behind the clump of wood. They flashed the lanterns in my face, As they were hurrying by; The sergeant look'd,and said,"He's dead," And I made no reply. The bullet had gone through my breastNo wonder I was still; But once will I be nearer death Than when upon that hill. A gray-clad picket came along Upon his midnight beat: He came so near me that I tried To move and touch his feet. At once he bent and felt my breast, Where life still fought at bay j No one who loved me could have done More than this man in gray. O'er me, all chilled with blood and dew, His blanket soft he spread; A crimson sheaf of wheat he brought, A pillow for my head. Then knelt beside me for an hour, And bathed my lips and brow; But for the man who was my foe...
