November 6,1890. t&hs Ifamtljj Circle* How Past Frit* Grew. "Grandpa!" shouted a little boy, bounding into a sunshiny porch where an old, white-haired man sat reading .his paper—"grandpa, I'm seven years old to-day, and I've got on trousers, and Fm going to begin school." "Why, why!" said the old gentleman, laying down his paper; "how many things are happening all together!" Grandpa was about as far from the end of his life as Fritz was from the beginning, and there seemed a wide difference between the bent form, white head, and feeble gait of the one, and the shining, bright curls that shook and nodded at the bounding steps of the other. Yet grandpa and Fritz were great chums, and loved and understood each other perfectly. "And now, grandpa, measure me up against your wall," continued our new school-boy, "so that I can tell just how much I have grown by the beginning of another term. So grandpa took out his pencil, and while Fritz stood with his back to the wall, very s...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres BY GEORGE T. SMART. Perhaps the most notable man in Britain to-day is General Booth, the commander-in-chief of the Salvation Army. If the title of his new book—"ln Darkest England"—is not altogether original, there is little doubt that the contents are. It is, perhaps, not always the wisest thing to thoroughly expose the vice and crime of a country, for such exposition appeals to some minds in a way that is not helpful; yet sometimes the need of reformation or renovation is not elsewise sufficiently felt. General Booth, in his book, proposes a plan for the lessening—perhaps extinction—of the poverty of Britain. The plan, briefly, is to form stations in the large cities which furnish to willing workers the required employment, such embryo institutions to send their trained workers to agricultural establishments in the provincial counties of England, and ultimately to the colonies. The scheme is a large one, as is the Sroblem requirin...

2 Thoughts of the Emperor Marcus Aurellus.—No. 111. SELECTED BY F. D. POWER. Labor not unwillingly, nor without regard to the common interest, nor without due consideration, nor with distraction, nor let studied ornaments set off thy thoughts, and be not either a man of many words or busy about too many things. And, further, let the deity which is in thee be the guardian of a living being—manly and of ripe age, and a Roman, and a ruler who has taken his post like a man waiting for the signal which summons him from life, and ready to go, having need neither of oath nor of any man's testimony. If thou findest in human life anything better than justice, truth, temperance, fortitude, and, in a word, anything better than thy own mind's selfsatisfaction in the things which it enables thee to do according to right reason, and in the condition that is assigned to thee without thy own choice—if, I say, thou seest anything better than this, turn to it with all thy soul, and enjoy that which t...

INTRODUCTION—The miserable farce of a trial and the mockery of justice was at last concluded, and Jesus had been delivered over by Pilate into the hands of the brutal soldiers to be crucified. The preparations for his crucifixion were rapidly made. The mocking of Jesus by the soldiers to whom was committed the execution, and some other details mentioned by Ihe other evangelists, are omitted by Luke. Tohimalone, on the other hand, are we indebted for the incident mentioned in the verses immediately preceding our lesson—that is, the Lord's address to the weeping women of...

6 West Virginia. IS SHE DEAD? "Wast Virginia is dead!" It was three years ago, at an annual meeting in New Cumberland (October, 1887), that a good brother, whose praise is in all the churches and whose name is a household word among our . brotherhood throughout the length and breadth of the land, uttered these words. He did not mean it unkindly, nor intend to be harsh. From his standpoint the declaration seemed to be true, and the writer of these lines felt very keenly the justice, and at the same time the injustice, of the criticism. But the brother who made the remark did not know it all. He was not a West Virginian, and had not been in a position to see the inside of the work. His was only an outside view, and not being familar with the fortunes and the misfortunes through which we had passed as a missionary organization since we first began, to him it did seem that the work had been a failure, and that in this respect West. Virginia was dead. But, like the little daughter of Jai...

November 18,1890. ©U* JfamUjj (&ivcU* Tom's Victory. Tom Henderson was on his way down street when he came face to face with Dr. Grantley. "Ah, Tom," said the Doctor, stopping. "You're just the one I wanted to see. I've been thinking about Ed Barton very specially for the past two or three days. He seems to be a sort of leader among his friends, and I'm afraid he isn't leading them in the right direction. Couldn't you influence him in some way?" Tom hesitated. "I don't believe 1 could," he answered slowly. "Have you tried?" "N—o, sir; not particularly." "Then you do not know whether you would succeed or not," said Dr. Grantley. "You're fond of fishing, and I hear you're quite an expert. I presume you are more or less proud of your success. My dear boy, suppose you seek also to be a fisher of men. It's a glorious calling, Tom. I wish you would try to be one. Think it over, and begin with Ed. We must draw him, if possible. Good morning." Tom touched his hat, and went his w...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. While the different organs of the Prohibition movement in the United States are trying to comfort their readers as best they mav because of the non-success of temperance legislation and the recent failures at the elections, the United Kingdom Alliance, of Great Britain, through its organ, the Alliance News, is jubilant because of great victory. This organization, embracing every shade of English politics, is accomplishing much in the line of temperance legislation. Its receipts and disbursements last year came to nearly $90,000. It has some of the strongest men in the kingdom as subscribers and supporters. It was on the platform at alliance meetings that Archdeacon Farrar first gained the public ear on matters outside those of an ecclesiastical and religious nature. The president of the alliance is Sir Wilfred Lawson, a man both wise and witty. Among the vice-presidents we find such men as Cardinal Manning, Jose...

2 The Spirit of Missions. AN ADDRESS DELIVERED BY MISS . SALLIE PORRER AT TffE VALLEY CONVENTION. We all know that the word mission means the state of being sent. Now, the sender being God, how it thrills the believer's heart to know that he is one of the links in that wonderful chain of the sent, beginning with the angels! The message, "Peace on earth," was delivered to the angels as the second link; those to whom they told it became the third, and so on down the ages. And let us bear in mind that each one joyed in his mission, and each felt impelled by duty to spread the glad tidings that had been sent straight down from the skies; and if our professed love to God is worth anything at all—if we are God's children—we will neverceaseto cry, "What more, Lord; what more can Ido for thy sake?" A true Christian can no more help being a missionary than he can help breathing. If he is a child of prayer (and what else can a Christian be?) he feels that he is in the king's business, which r...

INTRODUCTION.—The Jews fearing lest the sanctjity of the following day (the Sabbath) shonld be compromised by the hanging of the corpses on the cross, begged Pilate that theii legs might be broken (thus making sure their death) and their bodies taken down. The wish was readily granted. The soldiers broke the legs of thetwo malefactors first, and then coming to Jesus found that the great cry had indeed been his last, and that he waa already dead. They did not, therefore, break his legs, and thus unwittingly preserved the symbolism of that paschal lamb of which he was the antitype, and of which it had been comm...

November 20,1890. Slfttngi. BY CHAS. 8. LONG. Qu» State Convention for the ▼ear 1890 is a thing of the past, 90 far as the gathering and dispersing of preachers and delegates is concerned; bat when measured by results it will be for m long time to come a living, moving entity. There has never been such a gathering of the faithful in the history of the Disciples in Virginia as was witnessed last week in Richmond, and if any of our people have been of a fearful heart concerning our State work they can now bid all doubts depart. The success of the convention was due largely to the skillful generalship of that prince of workers —J. L. Hill—who has through winter's cold and summer's heat been at his post rendering efficient service. The convention showed its appreciation of his services by electing him to his old position for the ensuing year, and presenting him with a handsome revolving book-case. In fact, the convention was so well pleased with the past year's management that the old o...

6 Tlie Sculptured Christ. A sculptor in an Eastern land, Who was to fame well known. Bat greater favor wished to gain, Once carved a Christ in stone; And when the work was done he said, "To find if great it be, I'll ask of them who love this Christ, Whose image 'tis they see. "That, little child I mark at play, There in the streets below, Who sings so oft of him, I think His sculptured form would know; Bat if she fail to see whose form I fain would represent, Then have I failed to grasp the thought, My skill in vain is spent. He hastened forth into the street, His little critic brought, And placed her there before the work His patient hand bad wrought; And then, to see if she would know What theme he undertook, He from the marble form removed The veil and bade her look. "Now, mark well. Who is this you see? Whom does it bring to mind ?" He searched her face as if he thought His doom he there might find; And moments seemed as hours, as paused The child the work to scan; Then came the...

November 20,1890. family WivcU. Story of a Nickel. BY EMMA WILMOT. You are looking at this nickel on my watch chain. A strange ornament, you think, and having necessarily a history. With you newspaper people everything an association besides its moneyed value. This time you are right; worn and battered as this piece is 1 never look at or touch it without a strange thrill of emotion. My hair, you see, is now thickly sprinkled with gray; when 1 received the nickel there were only brown straws on my head. I wasagay lad, bright, happy, and had for companions the merriest lads of the town. We visited, larked, enjoyed life as much as the happiest; but we took for our enjoyment wine, and usually that which "gave color in the cup." You know the natural results; I suppose you have worn out more than one pen writing up just such cases. Outsiders began to comment. My people became alarmed, and at last shook their heads and said there was no hope for me. You may have written about it, but you d...

And how he won the fight, As you may, when you're tempted To do what isn't right. "Such a jolly lark," his comrades Said yesterday to Ben, "No fun like this all winter, If thiDgs work well"; and then They told him of some mischief They were planning out to do—"Rare sport, the name they gave it. "Of course you'll help us through ? Ben stood and thought a moment, And then he shook his head; "No, boys, you're quiet mistaken," The little fellow said. "I cannot help you in it"— And then his face grew bright With the courage of the hero—"Because it isn't right." His comrades were indignant; "That's a good excuse 1" they cried, "You're afraid! that's all the reason 1" Then my little man replied, "You may say that I'm a coward, If you like, but I won't do What's not right because you dare me To take part in it with yo...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemisplierjeß. BV GEORGE T. SMART. The present position of the French peasant upon the matrimonial question is giving the government of that country much anxiety. The rule generally holds good that in times of prosperity marriages increase, and that if men are thrifty there is more likelihood of an increase of marriages. This rule, however, seems inapplicable to France, which is very backward in matrimonial alliance, though forward in thrift. According to a certain M. de Foville, there are 6,500,000 depositors in France, with a total sum deposited of about $560,000,000. It thus appears that, though the peasant class of France has wealth enough, it has not the will. The writer above quoted thinks that the public house is the deterrent cause. The French are a cafefrequenting people, and, to judge by results, the home is not valued as much as it should be. The problem of population is becoming one of real importance to the republic. With a stagnan...

2 la It Burdensome to Serve Christ? BY W. O." MOORE. "This is the love of God, that we keephiscommandments: and his commandments are not grievous." The word used by the apostle John which is* translated grievous, means hard to observe, burdensome, oppressive, severe, etc. If the service we are called to perform as Christians is difficult to perform—is burdensome, is oppressive—it must be grievous. The Christian's calling is high, holy, and extensive in its demands. Can we say it is not grievous? 1. Much depends upon disposition. Many a young man feels it burdensome to study, to read what is useful, and to labor for success in laudable directions. Others would delight in school privileges, and account the application of their minds to study as a delightful and profitable exercise. There are many pursuits open to the young. What one may select anqther may reject. Whatever is to one's taste may be accounted delightful service. Do those born of God, who have overcome the world, regard c...
