SeptembeH 18,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAS. S. LONG. Last week I enjoyed a visit to one of the fairest and most fertile sections of the Old Dominion, the occasion being the meeting of the Alleghany District Cooperation at Simmonsville, Craig county. I had often heard of the Sinking Creek Valley, but this was my first visit to that section, and I heartily join in the testimony of others who were with me in sayiug that the half had not been told us. With its fair women, sturdy men, fruitful fields, and hospitable homes, Sinking Creek Valley is indeed an attractive section of God's country. MajorS. E. Lybrook presided and T. B. McCartney recorded the proceedings of the convention. The following named preachers were present, viz: J. H. Wingo, P. B. Baber, William Huffman, Professor Hopwood, W. J. Cocke, A. A. Ferguson, H. W. Hoover, J. R. McWane, W. Johnson, and Charles S. Long. Fourteen churches reported, the most of them being represented by delegates. The following is the numerical strengt...

6 &he family Circle* Dalay Wheeler. Daisy Wheeler was a little girl just nine years old, and her temper was something sad to hear about. Everybody said: "What a beautiful child Daisy is! but she has a dreadful temper." Her eyes were just as black as they could be; and, when she was angry, how thev did snap! Her mamma felt very badly about it, but how could she do anything if Daisy herself would not try to overcome it? One day, Daisy got very angry with her little brother, and scolded so hard and in guch. a loud, cross voice, that be cried, a fid ran to 2?amma for comfort. Mamma looked at Df is.y very sadly, and then said: "Daisy, go up to mamma's room, and bring down a little paper book you will find in the top drawer." Daisy hardly knew what to make of mamma, for she spoke in a new tone of voics; 'out she went up slowly, and soon brought dOWn a small book, evidently made of letter paper "Bewed together. She handed it to mamma, and stooped to kiss the baby's yellow head;...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. Although by some thinkers it is held that we have reached the positive period in religion, and that nothing further is to be expected in this particular, men very generally will not admit this in regard to morals. This is the century of reformation. Man's duty to man is now examined with analytic accuracy, and to the careful and honest analyst many things are shown of reforinable nature. Civil service reform, temperance reform, individual reform —all show the trend of human action. This is well; for where reformation is needed and refused, revolution assuredly will come. It is not always those who need the reformation to the greatest extent that are found moving the car of progress most powerfully; for the poet. Land or has well said: "No one can be truly noble so long as any one is really base." This truth has penetrated so far as to affect the English nobility; for we read of a recent gathering of members of t...

2 The Chautauqua Idea. BY PROF. W. P. AYLSWORTH. The present centyry has been pre-eminently one of new ideas and new institutions. Dr. Schaff, in his late "Church History," divides the modern period into three subdivisions, viz: "Reformation, Revolution, and Revival." In his judgment our time is that of awakening. And truly, as never before, these later years have been not so much of discovery of new truths as of the application of better methods—of the enforcement of truth already known. In the rapid changes constantly transpiring we scarcely realize how swiftly we have been drifting from the methods of a century ago. It seems almost incredible that it is but little more than one hundred years since the Sundayschool idea took form. It is true that something of the kind existed in the early Christian centuries, and that certain vague prophecies were given in isolated cases of Christian effort in this direction; yet its taking root seems to have been reserved chiefly for the nineteen...

INTRODUCTION.— The next day after He purged the temple and rebuked the rulers of the people for their apostasy and unfaithfulness, he was still teaching the people and working miracles. The enraged and baffled priests, scribes, and elders, determined, if possible, to turn the tide of popular favor against him, drew near in a body and demanded of him by what authority he did these things. Instead of answering them directly, he put to them a question concerning the authority of John the Baptist: "Was it from heaven, or of men?" This was a baffling question, and they at ...

September 25,1890. SlfUnx*. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. The "gospel of dirt" has had many advocates in the past decade, but it is somewhat losing its hold now, and scientists are casting around for some new theory. A little while before he died, Thomas Carlyle wrote: "I saw Charles Darwin the other day; told him I had read his 'Origin of Species" and other books, and that he had utterly failed to convince me of our descent from monkeys, but he had fully convinced me that he and his scientific brethren are rapidly changing the present generation of men into a race of monkeys." Herbert Spencer's definition of evolution as the "transformation of homogeneous through successive differentiations into the hetrogeneous" is beautiful and touching, but fails to satisfy some of the "old fogies, who are so stupid as not to believe the claim that a "race sprung from frog-spawn and evoluted into monkeys" is a satisfactory explanation of the origin of mau.

Earth is sweet, but heaven is sweeter; Love complete, but faith completer; Close beside our wandering ways, Through dark nights and weary days, Stand the angels with bright eyes; And the shadow of the cross Falls upon and sanctifies All our pains and all our loss. Though we stumble, though we fall, God is helping—after all! Sigh, then, soul, but sing in sighing, To tne happier things replying; Dry the tears that dim thy seeing.

Septembeb'2s, 1890 ©ivcie. A Strike. "I'm going to strike, mother," said Tom. "A»d I," said Ned." "Strike what?" asked mother. "Why, strike—strike work, you know. Strikes are all the fashion now. Ned and I have been holding a caucus about it, and we have made up our minds to try one. The white boys struck and had a splendid time of it. They didn't do a thing for a week, and then their mother made proposals for them to go on. She offered them a rise on their pocket money. That's the way strikes always end." "Not always," said mother, looking rather amused. "Now, mother," said Tom impressively, "you're to remember that if you want us to do anything specially for you, we're ready to do it. This strike doesn't apply to anything of that sort. "You are very kind, I am sure," said mother. "But," said Ned, "If Bridget wants any wood brought, or any kindling cut, she's got to make special terms. And if father wants the garden worked, he must make special terms." "I understand," said mother. ...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. in Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMABT. The vicissitude of things is not often shown in more striking manner than in the loss of Osman and Ali Pashas with the ill-fated Turkish man-of-war Ertogroul. It will be remembered that in the last war between Russia and Turkey Osman Pasha made so brave a stand at Plevna that the military world was astonished. Amidst the general run of reverses the Turks could there point to a brilliant piece of work. , It is strange that th? man who escaped death so many times and laced it so often on the land should end his life on a sinking ship, and that it should be on a peaceful errand rather than one of warlike character. Strange, also, the mission upon which Osman was engaged. That the representative of the most backward of the nations of Europe should have a special desire to communicate with the most forward of Asiatics is hard to understand. Turkish action is paradoxical often; more frequently enigmatical. The unspeak...

2 Tile Practical Value of the Apocalypse. BY W. L. HAYDEN. The series of revelations from God to man contained in the Book which Christians revere as given by inspiration bf the Holy Spirit "at sundry times and in divers manners" through a period of sixteen hundred years, closes, according to arrangement of canonical booksfamiliar by long use, with the somewhat mysterious composition known as* the "Revelation of St. John the Divine." This title is fully justified by the opening words, viz: "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, * * * sent and signified bv his angel unto his servant John." The title in the Greek Testament, anglicized, becomes the Apocalypse of John the Theologue. For the sake of brevity we call this portion of the New Testament the Apocalypse, or the Revelation, after the ancient custom of naming books from the first word in them. The name is applied generally to predictions relating to the growth and triumphs of the Messiah's kingdom, especially as revealed in visions or ...

It was his last week on earth, and into these four or five days were crowded more matters of importance than all that had taken place in his life hitherto, though all had led up to it. JDuring these days when Jerusalem was crowded to its fullest capacity by Jews from all parts of the world to attend the great feast Jesus seemed to be completely the Master of the city.
