November 27,1890. ißternatioiial Sunday-School Lessons FOB 189 Q. fourth quarter. Lesson X: December 7. The Walk to Emmani. Luke xxiv: 13-27. GOLDEN TEXT.—Ought not Christ to bare suffered these things, and to enter into his glory ?— Luke xxiv: 26. TlME.—Sunday, April 9th, A. D. 30; the afternoon of the day of the reeurrection. PLACE.—On the road between Jerusalem and Emmaus, eight miles distant. INTRODUCTION .—Jesus had risen from the dead on the morning of Sunday, the third day after the crucifixion, and had appeared first to Mary Magdalene, then to the other women who visited the tomb, and afterwards to Peter. The news of the resurrection spread fast among the disciples in Jerusalem; still it required time to reach all, and even when it spread the fact was too great to be realized at once, and too contrary to previous expectations to be other than slowly understood. Deep dejection reigned throughout the little Christian company. In spite of all their Master's warnings his death h...

November 27,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAS. S. LONG. P. T. Barnum, the great showman, has recently written an article for the Philadelphia Press, in which he discusses the question, "Is Life Worth Living?" Mr. Barnum holds that every man is the architect of his own fortune, and that if he finds the world unpleasant he himself is largely responsible for it. He is a firm believer in the doctrine of hope, and thinks it possible for "some poor, old, half-starved, bed-ridden woman" to have such a sweet, contented Christian disEosition and hope that she is appier than a sinful man can be in the soundest body or with the most abundant wealth. His advice to all is: "Make others happy around you; do something beside talk and lament others' misfortunes; reach out and help as many as you can." Certainly this is good advice, and if embodied in universal practice what a transformation would take place in this busy, selfish old world of ours! The secret of happiness is in making others happy. A little c...

6 One Hundred Thousand Dollars for Foreign Missions. A TABULATED STATEMENT SHOWING THE AMOUNT THAT EACH STATE IS ASKED TO RAISE. The Des Moines Convention recommended that an earnest effort be made to raise $100,000 this year for foreign missions, and asked the Executive Committee to suggest to the States the amount that each ought to raise. The committee devoted much time and thought to this task. The results are given in the table subjoined. A few words will explain this table and the method of its composition. In the second column the number of Disciples in each State is given. These figures are taken from the year-book. It was found that it would be necessary for the 620,000 Disciples to give an average of seventeen cents in order to raise the amount named. In the third column the amounts are given that the States would give if each Disciple gave seventeen cents. The committee felt that while some States could be counted on to raise seventeen cents per member, and some more than...

November 27,1890. jfamtla CtrsU* Rebuking Dishonesty. The hot sun of a July morning was pouring down on the backs of the busy berry-pickers. Under theipreading branches of an ap-ple-tree, in the midst of the terry Ktch, was a long table of rough ardg, on which the berries, gathered in wooden boxes, were placed, and from which they were transferred to iron-bound crates by Charles Mcintosh, a boy of fifteen. He was so busily engaged that he did not notice the approach of Mr. Millard, the owner of the fruit farm, who stood for some time silently watching him, as with deft fingers he arranged the quart boxes. A box haa fallen short of the full measure, so he evened it full. "I must speak to Bob Sackett," he thought to himself. "He's not picking fair." "These boxes are much too full," said Mr. Millard's gruff voice beside him, which so startled Charlie that he nearly let the box fall out of his hand. "You must take out a few of those berries." Charlie looked up at the stern face of his m...

8 Real Estate News. Of the many booms that agitate the public, it must be evident to every thoughtful person that mfeny of them must prove ephemeral. Onlyafew places can become great trade or manufacturing centres, and is a legitmale subject of inquiry as to which have the best claims. Platting territory adjacent 10 crossroads does not make a city, and many of these "corn-field booms" will collapse and the owners be thankful that the lots will produce corn. Location, climate, and com nercial facilitiei- are essential elements of strength to support a boom. That Norfolk, Va., will become one of the great cities is admitted on all hand?. Thefollowinj? from the Re vere Journal, Massachusetts, indicates the correctness of this statement: Whoever desires to understand the commerce of the North and South, and to perceive what is meant by the synonyms "New South," "Progress," and "Enterprise," should visit Norfolk, Va.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemisphere*. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The thorough pacification of the Indian is not yet accomplished. To-day the threatening attitude of several thousands of these restless rovers is the cause of much excitement in South Dakota. There may be an outbreak, but it will, perhaps, by wise tactics be averted. At all events it is well that the authorities are forwarding as rapidly as possible military and ammunition to the seat of the trouble. A reason for not expecting hostilities is the season of the year, which, although making a camSaign difficult to the United tates military, would make it much more difficult for the Indians. Two reasons are given for the present state of affairs. For some time past the Indians have been much excited by the increasing currency among them of the story of a Messiah. This story is a caricature of the Messiah of the Jews. It is believed that the expected leader will drive out the whites and give back to the Indians their...

2 Gleanings from the Life and Letters of Charles Kingsley.—No. I* ——— • BY G. P. COLER. 1 have lately enjoyed the privilege of reading the "Life and Letters of Charles Kingsley." The book is full of interest and inspiration, and I have thought that the readers of the Missionary Weekly might enjoy some of the gleanings that I have made from it. Charles Kingsley, the great English preacher and writer, was born in 1819. Favored with culture, and wise parents, he enjoyed superior advantages in ch'ildhood and youth. With an ardent love of nature, of art and literature, the boy found every encouragement at home and in school to develop these passions. At the age of nineteen he wrote to his mother from college as follows: "I am reading my Bible and my Faley and my mathematics steadily, and am learning poetry by heart. And, moreover, I am keeping a journal full of thoughts and meditations and prose poetry, for I am not alone enough to indite verses, as I have not had many walks by myself." ...

Their wonder and delight increased, for he quoted passage after passage, from the beginning to the end of the Scripturee, and showed them bow the whole spirit and contents of the holy books pointed to snch a Messiah as he had indicated—a Messiah founding a spiritual, not a mere earthly kingdom—founding it by love and self-sacrifice, not by force. They had never heard such discourse. He threw light on the deep things of Scrip tare which made it a new book to them. They had...

December 4,1890. Sifting* BY CHAS. 8. LONG. The Independent, has something to say about the horrible marriage laws of India, which British rule has not yet reformed. It gives as an illustration an incident which recently took place in one of the largest centres of educational activity in India. A marriage was arranged between a lawyer suffering with white leprosy nearly all over the body, and aged about twenty-three years, and an educated young girl of twelve years. The price paid for the girl was two hundred and fifty dollars in hard cash. The court officers and a few lawyers were instrumental in bringing about the negotiations and closing the contract. The girl was purposely kept in ignorance of the disease of her purchasing husband, and she knew it only when she met her future lord at the marriage service. She merely looked up with tearful «yes to her father, and submitted to her lot with a resignation characteristic of the Hindu maiden. Only the diffusion of Christianity can rig...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. . President Harrison's annual message now lies before Congress and the country. The President's message, in most cases, is much like the speech of the British sovereign, in the matter of being a statement of what is either known or expected. Perhaps the chief value of such communications is the concise statement of national progress and plans by one who of all others ought to know. So that the average citizen has in brief a synopsis of the past year's work of his representatives, and has also indicated for him, by one who should know, the trend that future legislation may take. From the message we learn that the Behring Sea dispute is not yet settled, and that correspondence on the subject will be laid before Congress; that the Delagoa Bay railway case is in the hands of threeeminent jurists for settlement, and that as the relations of the country with all others continue friendly no special recommendations need...

2 Thoughts of the Emperor Marcus Aureliug.—TSo. V. SELECTED BY F. D. POWER. In the morning when thou risest unwillingly let this thought be present: I am rising to the work of a human being. Why, then, am 1 dissatisfied if I am going to do the things for which 1 exist and for which I was brought into the world? Or have 1 been made for this, to lie in the bed-clothes and keep myself warm? But this is most pleasant. Dost thou exist, then, to take thy pleasure, and not at all for action or exertion ? Dost thou not see the little plants, the little birds, the bees, the ants, the spiders working together to put in order their several parts of the universe? And art thou unwilling to do the work of a human being, and dost thou not make haste to do that which is according to thy nature? I go through the things which happen according to nature until I shall fall and rest, breathing out my breath into that element out of which I daily draw it in, ami falling upon that earth out of which my fa...

D. 30. , PLACE.—The ascension took place from the top of Olivet, near Bethany. INTEODUCTION.—The concluding verses of Luke's gospel, especially if we had no other record ot the last words of Jesus to his disciples, would lead us to suppose that they were all spoken on the day of his resurrection, and that having concluded them be at once ascended to heaven—that is, that his resurrection and ascension day were the same. But we know from Acts of Apostles and from the various New Testament writers that an interval of forty days elapsed between the resurrection and ascension, and that during this time the Lord met his disciples on many occasions, both at Jerusalem and in Galilee (see the conclu...

December 11,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAS. 8. LONG. The Rev. Howard McQueary, an Episcopal minister, and an author of some note, is to be tried for heresy at Cleveland, Ohio, January 7th. This case has caused considerable discussion for months past, and consequently great interest is manifested in the coming trial. Mr. McQueary has been spending some time in the East looking up testimony and documents bearing on his case. He claims that he has been greatly misrepresented in regard to his belief. He denies that he rejects the incarnation, miraculous conception, and* resurrection of our Savior, and says he believes in the divinity of ouj Lord, and that he simply explains the mode of the incarnation differently from some others. On this subject Mr. McQueary says: "I believe he [Christ] was miraculously begotten by the Holy Ghost, albeit along the lines of natural generation, and that he arose from the dead the third day." He says he will go before the ecclesiastical court in private and make...

Hopefully disguise it as we may, close our eyes to it if we longer can, we are and have been just existing in Georgia. Comparatively unarmed, undisciplined, and unorganized, we are entirely unprepared to cope with the wellarmed, well-disciplined, and thoroughly organized activities by which we are confronted.
