December 11,1890. i&he Ifamtlu Wivcle. Hoeing and Praying. Said Farmer Jones in a whining tone, To his good old neighbor Gray, "I've worn my knees nigh through to the bone, But it aint no use to pray. "Tour corn looks just twice as nice as mine, Though you don't pretend to be A shinin light in the church to shine, An' tell salvation's free. "I've prayed to the Lord a thousand times , For to make that 'ere corn grow; An' why yourn beats it so, and climbs, I'd gin a deal to know." Said Farmer Gray to Hs neighbor Jones, In his easy, quiet way: "When prayers get mixed with lazy bones, They don't make farmin' pay. "Tour weeds, I notice, are good an' tall, In spite of all your prayers; Tou may pray for corn till the heavens fall, II you don't dig up the tares. "I mix my prayers with a little toil Along in every row; An' I work this mixture into the soil Quite vig'rous with a hoe. "An' I've discovered, though still in sin, As sure as you are born, This kind of compost well work...

The Missionary Weekly. V®l. XI. In Two Hemispheres. BY GEORGE T. SMART. The social reformer is a man not easily terrified. The numerous disasters which have befallen communistic settlements in the past are not sufficient to prevent other ventures of the same kind to-day. When men are endowed physically and mentally to the same extent, then it may be expected that they could hold equal possessions; but with inequality of power, purpose, and performance it is not likely that in the present state men will agree to equality of property. The inertness of body and almost ' unconscious cerebration" of the idler standing in the sunshine is far removed from the perspiring: brow and painfully mental consciousness of the man trying to gain an honest livelihood. And be it noted that the cry of "divide" comes more often from the former than the latter. The true lover of his fellows will be always anxious to level down existing inequalities when they are artificial. Can any man fill up inequaliti...

2 A Theme for Seven Grand Sermons. BY J. L. DARSrE. The deity and eternity of Christ, as revealed in the holy Scriptures, naturally fall into seven grand epochs, each one of whidhis separated from the rest, not only by the order in which it occurs, but also by thedisplayof miraculous Sower and a distinct object in od's plans. It is as though the eternal and unsearchable One had come forth from his secret habitation for a brief moment to reveal himself to us in the person of his adorable Son, as he stands related to our race in his successive acts of creation, providence, and redemption. The first epoch suggests to us the Christ as the Logos or the diviDe nature in the ages or cycles antedating creation, so impressively set forth in the opening verses of John's gospel, and is still further emphasized in the first chapter of Hebrews, Col. i: 16, and John xvii: 5, as well as in many other passages of Scripture. The second is the period of creation. It might be well to remark that the n...

December 18,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAS. 8. LONG. Our Savior warned his disciples to be watchful because many false prophets would arise, and these would say: "Lo, here, and 10, there isChrist." History has demonstrated the foreknowledge of the Savior and the need of his. admonition, for even in our own country many false messiahs have arisen during the past three or four years. The Messiah craze which has created such excitement among the Indians on our frontier has its parallel among the more highly civilized and better educated portions of the country, and many white men and black men have professed to have received revelations, and in some cases to be the Christ himS6lfe In the summer of 1888 Tennessee witnessed some excitement, as a man by the name of Patterson went around preaching that a wonderful thing was to happen, and when he thought the times were ripe he declared that the second advent of Christ had come, and that A. J. Brown, who had served as Patterson's assistant, was th...

6 <£♦ Topio for week beginning Deo. 21st. Some Reasons Why Christ Came to Earth. John xii: 46, 47; iii: 16, 17: x: 10: Mark ii: 17. "I come a light into the world." Chrißt came into this world as a light to those that Bat in the shadow of darkness from the fall of man through Adam. He was straying to and from the God of heaven. How many times do we read that Moses rebuked the chosen people of God for this very act, and for making obeisance to idols of their own make, and to the idols of foreign nations. A light is set where all can see it. "Would one light a candle and put it under a bushel?" God has not put the light under a bushel, but through the Word has shown us the way of salvation. Christ was sent to save the world from darkness. "For God so loved the world." God is spoken of as "our Father." As such, have we the confidence in him that we have in an earthly parent ? Do we believe the words of our text, "That hegave his only begotton Son"? Welearweare very much line...

December 18,1890. Che jfamiljj Circle. Folded Hands. Pale, withered hands, that more than four-score years Have wrought for others, soothed the hurt of tears, Rocked children's crad.es, eased the fe- ver's smart, Dropped balm of love in many an aching heart; Now stirless, folded, like wan rose-leaves pressed, Above the snow and silenceof her breast, In mute appeal, they told of labors done, And well-earned rest that came at set of sun. From the worn brow the lines of care had swept As if an angel's kiss, the while she slept, Had smoothed the cobweb wrinkle* quite away, And given back the peace of childhood's day. And, on the lips, the faint smile almost said, ''None know life's secret but the happy dead." So gazing where she luy, we knew that pain And parting could not cleave her soul again. And we were sure that they who saw her last, In that dim vista which we call the past, Who never knew her old and laid aside, Remembering best the maideu and the bride, Had sprung to greet her w...

I recently visited Hinton to hunt up the Disciples there. I found sixteen of them, and they appeared to be deeply interested in the work.

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. XI. On Christmas Morning. The storms have flocked through heav'n'a high hall, Like birds on winga of enow, And let their frosty plumage fall Along the hills below. And now the tide of Christmas morn In eastern skies rolls higher, Till every shrub and wayside thorn Seems touched with wondrous Are. What visions in the light I aee Like heavenly hosts of old 1 The sunbeams walk my path with me Like angels clad in gold. They throng the hills, the open sky, The zenith seems aglow, With shining garments trailing/by Of blue and gold and snow. And hark! seraphic sounds I hear Of soulful music light, As though some aogel, passing near, Had touched me in his flight, And by that touch, so near divine, Soft as of snow-bird's wings, Had quickened every sense of mine To know of heavenly things. "Hail I Christ the Lord is born again 1" The bright host seems to sing. "His birth is in the hearts of men— Ring, bells of Christmas, ringl" And then the joyful swaying bells The...

2 The message of the Christ* mas-Tide. BY ROSALIE O. LIPSCOMB. Through green fields bathed in soft spring sunshine, among the gathered harvest sheaves golden in the summer's prime, and through sighing woodlands rich with autumnal tints, the spirit of the year has passed, and now, as she feels the breath of the frost-king, upon her withered cheek ere her trembling voiced hushed in eternal silence, she bids us turn from the clamorous cares and snarling troubles which have dogged our footsteps each hour of her brief reign, that we may celebrate with all honor and in all gladness that far-off time when— ''The heavenly Babe, All meanly wrapped, in the rude "manner lay." How gladly do we heed the message! What hallowed associations cluster around the natal season of our Lord 1 We cling with all the firmness of a loving faith to the privileges, the joys, the observances of the holy Christmas-tide. Indeed, there seems a magic power in its very name. Despite the fact that it comes when the d...

PLACE.—Shechem, between mounts Ebal and Gerizim, the metropolis of the tribe of Ephraim. PARALLBL ACCODNT.—II Chron. x. INTRODUCTION. —Our studies this year commence with what may be prop- erly called the second stage of the kingdom. In our last studies in the Old Testament (from July, 1889, to Jannary, 1890), we studied the history of Israel from the call of Samuel to the death of Solomon. After Moses, Samuel exercised the most important influence upon the national life of Israel; for while Moses founded the nation Samuel raised it from the depths of idolatry to whioh it had sunk, and partially from subjection to the idolatrous nations by which they were surrounded. He also c...

December 25,1890. Sifting*. BY CHAS. S. LONG. Two weeks ago there appeared in the "Sittings" an extract from Rev. A. C. Dixon's sermon on "Repentance," published in the Baltimore Baptist. This week we give another extract, from the same sermon, and commend it because it is in harmony with Scripture teaching, and also because it is substantially the teaching of the Disciples on this subject. It will readily be seen that considerably progress has been made in some directions, and that we hold many things in common with the more advanced of the Baptist brethren. It matters not which body has changed, or whether both have gained some additional knowledge, only so the trend is in the right direction —toward greater unity and oneness of purpose. Dr. Dixon quotes II Cor. vii: 10, and says: "Godly sorrow is no part of repeutance. It works repentance. The workman that makes a wagon is not the wagon; the road that leads to Brooklyn is not Brooklyn; the Creator is not the creation; cause is no...
