October 2,1890. IfumilH (Circle. The Two Brothers. In Palestine long years ago— So runs tbe legend old— Where Kedron's sparkling waters flow Across their sands of gold, And Mount Moriah lifts his head Above the sunny plain, Two brothers owned—as one— tia said, A field of golden grain. And whefl the autumn days had come And all the shocks and sheaves Stood waiting for the "harvest home," Among the withering leaves. The elder brother said one night, "I'm stronger far than Saul, My younger brother, 'tis but right That I should give liim all These sheaves that grew upon the plain We own together, so I'll put with his my stacks of grain, And he will never know I" Scarce had he left the sheaves of wheat When quietly there came Across the field with stealthy feet, And errant} just the same — The younger lad, who said, "I see My brother Simon's need Is greater far than mine, for he Hath wife and child to feed; And so to him I'll give my sheaves, It is but right, I know, And he will never th...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. in Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. Anarchy has been lately effervescing in the city of Brooklyn. A circular issued under the auspices of the Brooklyn anarchists was a short time ago printed and published, in which some exceedingly incendiary language was used, and a call made for a meeting to devise ways and means towards the achievement of the anarchic purpose. The mayor of the city forbade the assembly called for, because, after a consultation with the city counsel, "he was convinced that the meeting might disturb and endanger the public peace, and after an examination of the law he thought the police had the right to prevent such an assembly." The action of the mayor has called forth severe strictures from several of the New York and Brooklyn daily papers. The cry is that free speech is in danger. The New York Press says: "The. mere talk about force is no crime in a land of free speech until it results in an overt act of force to the detriment...

Octobeb 9, 1890. International Sunday-School Lessons FORIB9O. - FOURTH quarter. Lesson III: October 19. Tlie Spirit of True Service. Luke xjsii: 24-37. GOLDEN TEXT.—Let this wind be in vou, which was also in Christ Jesus.— Phil, ii: 5. TIME.— Thursday evening, April 4th, A. D. 30; the evening before the crucifixion ; during the passover feast described in the last lesson. PLACE.—Jerusalem, in an upper room, where Jesus and his disciples were assembled to keep the passover. INTRODUCTION.— The time and place of the events which form the subject of our lesson to-day seem to have been in the upper chamber in which the last supper was eaten, and, perhaps, in the earlier part of the feast. The lesson taught arose, perhaps, out of the question as to who should have the places of honor near the Master—the seat nearest the Master of the feast being the seat of honor. Contentions among the disciples for the highest places were common, but this seems to have been the greatest, and took place a...

October 9,1890. Sifting*. by chas. s. long. On Monday morning last I concluded to make a flying visit to Salem, one of our booming towns and a twin sister of Roa noke. I found Bro. B. F. Ammen at the depot looking for Bro. J. A. Spencer, who was announced to preach in the Salem Baptist church on Monday night. Owing to the failure of trains on the Norfolk and Western to run anywhere near schedule time, Bro. Spencer did not reach his destination until nearly nine o'clock p. m., and so I was drafted for the occasion. We had a very good audience for so dark and rainy a night, and Dr. Tyree made it very pleasant for me, assisting me in the exercises. We are trying to secure a church lot in Salem in a good location, and as soon as we succeed in that an effort will be made to build a house of worship. Our prospects are good for securing a fine lot at the intersection of three streets on the south side of the river. The company will give us a positive answer in a few days, and as one of the...

The new house of worship, eleven miles in the country, near Stony Branch, for which I preach, iB nearing completion. We hope to complete it before theconvention and get regularly at work under some other name more appropriate than "Stony Branch." The congregation at this place is very weak and numbers less than is recorded in the Eroceeding of last convention, iut they are a faithful few, "and we hope with the new house of worship, regular preaching, and the present prospects for a building up of the neighborhood, to be able to accomplish more good than the outlook would justify at one time.

"It's deceiving, and if it is wrong to deceive in January, why isn't it wrong the first of April?" "But it's such fun," said Phil, "and everybody knows you don't mean any harm." "I guess your grandma is about right, Phillip; she generally is," said Grandpa Bellows, looking up from his newspaper. "There is plenty of fun that is right without this,, isn't there?" "Yes, sir," said Phil, and he went away whistling "Marching Through Georgia," though he felt rather sober. "I had planned so many good jokes to play on the boys today I" he said to himself. "I do wish it wasn't wrong, but grandma thinks it is, so there's an end of it." The other boys had no scruples, however, and there were plenty of jokes played, and Pbil laughed with the others. When he came home from school, grandpa looked very sober, and grandma was slyly wiping her eyes on her checked apron. "Are you quite sure you did...

M. in the Valley of Virginia held a session in connection with the District Convention for the first time August 8,1890, Mrs. J. E. Timberlake in the chair. Exercises opened by singing "Plenty To Do," reading the forty-sixth Psalm, and prayer by L. A. Cutler, followed by an address of welcome by Sister Timberlake. She said: "Sisters in Christ, co-workers in the great cause of God and man, we welcome you. You have our sincere Christian greeting, our most cordial welcome, our warmest sisterly love. We meet under favorable auspices, and on an occasion of more than ordinary interest, which it is our privilege to make profitable in the promotion of an object which, to our sex, should be one of the first importance.

October 16,1890. SlfUnga. BY bfiAS. 8. LONG. For eighteen hundred years the enemies of Christ have been trying to destroy the Christian religion and relegate its precepts and principles to the moles and the bats. Herod and Pilate were made friends on that eventful day when mobocraey triumphed in Jerusalem and secured the crucifixion of the world's Redeemer. From that day to the present all forms of skepticism and unbelief have made common cause in efforts to crush the Church and destroy man's hope in a future life. Years ago a noted and talented infidel declared that he had cut down all the trees in the Christians' paradise, and another one boasted of his intended exploits by saying that while it had required twelve men to plant Christianity, he would show the world that one man could uproot it. Judaism, paganism, and all forms of infidelity, such as atheism, deism, rationalism, and agnosticism, have vainly tried to stem the advancing current and beat back the rising tide of Christi...

6 North Carolina EvangelIcing* BY R. W. STANCILL. [This report calls especial attention to Winston as the coming city of North Carolina, and while its publication has been somewhat delayed, still it contains food for reflection for the brethren of the State. The greatest, grandest, and most promising fields to-day are the booming cities. People who move into them are ready to form new religious ties and associations if people will only meet them with zeal, love, truth, and the promise of permanency in church work. The apostles -set us an example in attacking first the cities. Crowds rush to the cities, and missionary societies should seek to present the gospel to the greatest possible number of people.—Ed. M. W.] (Continued from last week.) I began work in Asheville on the fourth Sunday in June and continued in that section till the 21st of August. More than a year ago, under the pastorate of T. M. Myers, now of Kansas, the Asheville brethren began to build a house of worship. After...

"Of course we could not expect as much of your time as Mrs. Jones always gave us, but surely you are willing to help on the good work. The Master has given you a responsible place in his vineyard." "And how can I best fill it?" inquired Mrs. Torrey. "By helping my four boyß to grow up into true, earnest men, and earing for my delicate little Ruth—or by neglecting these-duties for the sake of leading the prayer-meet-ing, or distributing tracts? Do not think, Mrs. Denton, that I am unwilling to work, or wish to shirk any responsibility. I will help in any way I can which does not conflict with my duties as a wife and mother."

In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. Although the Mormon hierarchy has with great ostentation promulgated a proclamation abolishing polygamy, it must not be supposed that the Gentile world can see all the motives underlying such action. Federal law has apparently asserted itß sovereignty, but the wily followers of the base prophet may profess one thing in order to attain another. Seeing that the declaration of the president of the church must have been under consideration for some time, it looks inconsistent that the number of immigrants landing at New York with the intention of embracing Mormonism does not decrease. Many of t...

2 West Virginia State Meeting: The annual convention of the Disciples of West Virginia was held with the church at Bethany October 9th-llth, according to announcement already published in the Missionary Weekly. If any stickler for correct speech is disposed to amend this statement by saying that the annual convention of a few disciples of West Virginia met at the time and place named, I will allow the amendment. Indeed, the same may be said of the largest of our conventions. They represent relatively few of the great body of our people. It must beconfessed, however, that our West Virginia meetings are far less representative than those of other States. It is only theeasternand western extremities of the State that care for the cause of organized missionary work, if we may judge by the attendance at these conventions. The 'great central portion of the State is entirely unrepresented in any of our missionary gatherings. It there be any that take pride in this they may well ask themsel...
