IF I COVLI) ONLY KNOTT.
"Casting all your earcs upon Him, for lie
carcih for you."?I. Pet. v. 7.
Ifl could only surely know
That all these things that tire me ?o
Were noticed by my Lord !
The pang that cuts me like a 'inifo.
The noise, the weariness, the strife?
What peace it would afford!
T wonder if He really shares
in all tnese nine unman vitiv*.
This mighty King of kings! ^
If He who guiiles* through boundless space
Each blazing planet iu its place.
C'au have the condescending grace
To mind these petty things.
It seems to mc, if sure of this,
Blent with each ill would come such blisi
That I might covet pain.
And deem whatever brought to me
The loving thought of Deity,
And sense of Christ's sweet sympathy
Pear I.ord, my heart shall no more doubt
That thou dost compass mc about
With syrapat1^ livine.
The Love for mc onu vucitied
Is not the love to leav? nay .side,
But waiteth ever to di\ide
Each smallest can of mine.
^ot only for the sake of the child of today,
but for the eake of the man of the
future, should parents bring their children |
to the house of Goil. If the coming generation
is to be the church-goers, "the
children of the present must he churchgoers.
The failure on the part of Christian
parents to take their children to church, by
gentle but firm compulsion if necessary, is
fhn r>ronnr?ti/in rif n feneration who will
Deselect the hoft e of God. And for that
neglect the Christian parents of today will
be responsible.? ' - her.
INVITF.D SIX TIM Bain
one of the Rev. C. II. Yatmsn 9 evanfe
istic services recently held in tin- South,
e related this incident of a young man in
Philadelphia who was asked on Monday to
be a Christian, but declined; on Tuesday
another worker gave him the choice of receiving
or rejecting Chri-t. and he refused;
on Wednesday it happened that again some
one said to him, "Give your heart to Jesus,"
but "Xo," was all the aii3\ver they got.
Thursday, by a strange providence, be was
once more urged to give up sin, and again
on Friday was lovingly invited to jseek the
Saviour or all men?all with 110 etiect. as
though God would do all that could be done,
once more on Saturday he was entreated to
' follow Christ," but stubbornly refused.
It was his last refusal. He said, "Xo, I
won't. I'm going to have some fun and a
good time. Tomorrow I'm coins; to Atlantic
City for a Sunday's holiday trip, and I
don't want you folks to keep tormenting me
with your gospel invitations."
He'was never asked again. Six times invited
and nix times refused! Sunday be
went for his pleasure to the sea, but when
he came back on ilonday it was in his coffin,
lie was drowned while ljathing.
the power of the GOSPEr,.
The theory of Strauss, that the Gospels
have a mystical origin, was fully exposed
when it first appealed some forty or fifty
years ago, but it often reappears in various
forms. It may be worth while, therefore,
to reproduce an old but true incident which
occurred some years siuce and was then
Some time since, a woman delivered a
lecture in Lancashire, England, against
vunsiiaimy, in which sue ueciareu mat, me
Gospel rarrative of the life of Christ is a
myth or fable. One of the mill hands who
listened to her obtained leave to ask a

the lady is: 'Thirty years aco I was a curse
to this" town, and everybody shrank from
me that had any respect "for himself. I often
tried to do better, but could not succeed. The

they said it was no use try ins? me any long- i

was taken before the nia.'istrates, and they
tried; and next I was sent to prison, and the
wardens tried what they could do, but
though they all fned, I was nothing better,
but rather worse.
Now, you sav that Christ is a myth.
But when "I tried, and the teetotalers," the
police, the magistrates, and the wardens of j
the prison, all t.ied in vain, then Christ took I
hold of me, touched my heart, and made me
a new man. And now T am a member of
the church, a class leader, a superintendent
of the Sunday-school; and I ask, if Christ is
a m.. th, how conies it to pass that that myth
is stronger than all the others put together?' j
The lady was silent. 'Nay, miss,' said he, .
say what you will, the (iospel '/ the power
of "God unto sahalioii."'
"i am my own master.'
"J am my own master," says the young
man. Well, be your own master, ami sit j
down and have an eantest and plain talk j
with yourself. Ask yourself who you are, '
what you are, what" you have been doing, j
what you are doing now, and what you pro- !
pose or expect to do hereafter. Ask yourself .
what you have done to make the" world I
wiser, or better or happier. Try to ascertain I
whether you have done the world harm or
done it pood, see if you have been of any real
service to mankind."and how. What arevou
worth to the world in which you live? What
great enterprise for the promotion of human
interest would suffer by your death? How
manv would miss you or care whether you
lived or .lied? You are one of fourteen
hundred millions of human beings on earth.
How much, and what sort of iufluence have
you exfrciscd on othersor have yon, or do
you exercise any influence worth notice?
You are your ow:. ma>ter. Does the master
try to be a man, or is be content to be a
mere cipher, an 0 In sccietv? Has he sufficient
self-respect to keep himself above all
that is low, coarse, vulgar and bad? Does
he always speak the truth?never use obscene
nor profane language?never do a mean
thing? Is he always regardful of age, re- |
spectful to equals" and kind to inferiors?
Does he labor earnestly to improve his mind,
his morals and his manners; or, is he careless,
idle and indfferentto such things? Does
he spend much time in the company of idlers
?smoking, drinking and foolish talking? If
bo, tell him?that master of yours?he is on
the wrong track, and if he does not switch
himself off. there is surely a crash ahead, and
no one to save the pieces,and when it coiues,
the verdict of the people will be, "served
him right.'' He might base known it would
come. He lived for it and he has it. ''You
are your own master."
Better watch that master very closely?see
that he forms no bad habits, "keeps out of
bad comj any, uses no improper language,
is always engaged in some honest and useful
pursuit", lives honestly, truthfully and usefully.
If these and like things are well and
faithfully attended to, then and then only
may you expect to be of any real service to
the generation in which you live. Remember
there will be m?nv obstacles to be overcome,
many difficulti s to be encountered,
many temptations to be resisted and many
bard struggles between inclination and duty,
so that you will have to put down all the
will force you can posMblv command, but
choose the right in all things and stick to it,
and all will end well. It requires continued
and earnest effort to be a true man, true in
every sense of the word, and yet every man
may be a true man if he will." With all the
privileges granted, and all the advantages
attainable, it still depends 011 the individual
himself whether or 110, he will be a true
man.?[St. Louis Advocate.

ORIGIN OF THE BLUE RIBBO.V.
The Christian Comvxonwealth (London
says: "It is generally supposed that th
Blue Ribbon movement had its origin ii
America, but such is not the case. It wa
started in North Wales, and an eniinen
clergyman in the Church of England de
serves the credit of having started a move
ment which has done immense good through
out all Welsh and English speaking coun
tries. Many years ago the Rev. Mr. Lloyd
better known as 'Yr Estyn,' bad been work
ing hard among the drunkards of his parish
and had been the means of reclaiming a larg
number of them. In order to prove his sin
cerity each convert had to wear a little piei
of blue ribbon, and a small army was sooi
formed. In the course of time a number o
these left Wales for America, carrying wit!
them the tiny bit of ribbon. The idea wa
soon taken up and worked out by our Amer
lean cousins, and the movement rapidl;
spread throughout the States. Subsequently
it. found its wav into Eneland and othei
parts of the world,"
"WHAT PROHIBITION DOES.
Thers can be no manner of doubt thai
Prohibition increases the productive powei
of wage-earners. In doing that it increase;
the size of the profits that are available to:
the payment of wages. It does not eto]
there, however. It increases the combining
power of the wage earners themselves. Thi
greatest solvent known for a labor organiza
tion is drink. The Knights of Labor under
stood that when they barred saloonkeeper
from among them. There is something ir
the devil of alcohol that destroys the asso
ciational ties of men. even thoss stronges
possible ties of the family. In the late Nev
York Central strike one of the very firs
orders sent out by Powderly to the Knightwas
to keep out of the saloons' Why? Be

They never can.
The argument can be epitomized as fol

WHICH SIDE HE IS ON.
Rev. I>. F. Mills, the evangelist, who rt
cently conducted a successful revival at El
gin, 111., took occasion at one of his meet
iogs to refer to the liquor question as lo.
I would like to give a little sermon on terr
psrance, and I would like to make it so plai;
that everybody could unlerstand. Some
times a person will insult me by asking mi
which side of the temperance or prohibitioi
question I am on! Which side am I on? Well
you gc to the drunkards and thieves, and bur
glars and gamblers, and saloon keepers am
the makers of the accursed stuff, and fini
out which side they are on, and then put m
down on the other side. As you go down ti
that wrote'aed hovel, where the poar wotnai
worse than widowed, sits with her wors
than orphaned babe at her broast, her heart'
blood dripping away drop by drop, put you
ear down close to her heart, and noar whicl
side she is on, and then put me down on he
side. Why is it that these accursad saloon
exist in Elgin to-day? Because men worshi]
the god that favors hades. Suppose a mai
should come here to-day and take one of you
fairest and brightest children, ami by mak
idiot, the whole community would ba aftei

you to license him to do such a thine if h
could do it in tea minutes, and it is only i
question of five years, or possibly ten o
twenty, and you will allow him to do tha
very thing, and for only a paltry few hun
I will say one thing more: If I have ever
since the day I gave my heart to God. b;

accursed traffic, I should deserve to have m;

daughter into the foul embrace of one of th
loathsome products of the business. Now, i

this season, although many thousands
think that they have. With a canvasback
worth almost its weight in silver
nnd a terrapin even more precious, the
bona fide article has been scarce and the
nawes have been used to cover clever
substitutes that only epicures could detect.
Indeed, with the terrapin at $60
a dozen, the only way for a caterer to
serve it with financial success at the
average banquet is to mix with three or
four diamond-backs eight or nine of the
4kslidera" of the far South or the chcaper
varieties of other sections. This year
the intermixture of varieties so as to secure
a satisfactory result at a satisfac
tory price has become sometning 01 an
art. The real canvas-back duck has appeared
intermittently on bills of fare and
even in Baltimore, the headquarters of
moderate-priced epicureanism, a dish of
it cost $4, the highest rate ever known
in that city.
A man who recently returned from the
Chesapeake region says that it is only, a
matter of time when the terrapin and the
canvas-back duck will be exterminated,
and the circumstances fully substantiate
his assertion. Fewer terrapin have been
caught this year than ever before. The
best come from the Chesapeake Bay, an.l
the catchers all say that they never kne w
them to be so scarce. They have been
hunted mercilessly, and, to add to the
