CITV, N. ,J.
An adiuir'able article in a lato issue
of the Congiegationalist told ns how
the writer, when a boy. was grcatly
stimulated to giving by tho fact that
his beiievolent gifts were somuhow
always mysterionsly mado up to him.
His father, it appears, thus sought to
train the boy in a raro gtace. In the
samo way, the writer goes on toatlirm,
does God train his childreu ; let us
only be faithful in giving and the
money we give comes back to us.
"There is that Hcattereth and yet
incieasetli." "He that watcreth, shall
be wutered also himself."' Theteisno

have a long prayer at tho dedicatiou of

long prayers every Sabbath is a mis
