"OWED" TO THE FLIES. In the wake of sultry summer Come the pesty little flies: May the Powers of Darkness take 'em. Dash, and bust, and drat their eyes. You will find 'em in the suirar, You will find em in the jam, Causing many rude expressions— Words that rhyme with Mary's lamb. You may smash 'em, you may bash 'em, You may dislocate their spines, Assault 'em with a hammer, And hang 'em up in lines; _ Yet there's always one reflection, Which could drive a man insane— That despite our greatest efforts They'll come next year again.

r* I VINE LOVE AND MERCY BY PASTOK RUSSELL. Text: "A«d'iu thw 'mountain shall tue Lord ixf Hosts make unto all people ' feast of fat tlijngs"- (Isa. xxv., 0). Throughout the Scriptures the word "mountain" is UBcd us the symliol for a kingdom. Earthly governments are repre sented as mountains and hills, while the Lord's government is represented as being established "in the top of the mountains." It is this mountain, or Kingdom of God, which is referred to in our text. It has. not yet been established in the earth, and hence its blessed work has not yet -been realised. We still properly pray: "Thy will be done on earth, as it is done in heaven." True, a beginning has been made. For ihoro than eighteen centuries since the Holy Spirit was bestowed at l'cnteeost the church has been in process of selection; and the church is sometimes called the kingdom, because its members, when glori lied, will constitute the kingdom class— the Bride—who will share with the Hea venly Bridegroom the kin...
