The Rev. VV. G. Lawes, who has

I never came together except it) strife

brought us peace and protection, and

and teaching of God's Word I have
seen murderers and cannibals become
men of peace, I have seen the > shameless
thief and robber become honest, I
have seen the lascivious and filthy live
a chaste and pure life, I have seen the
quarrelsome and selfish become kind
and generous; but I have never heard
of such results from any human agency,
nor from any other than that
Word, the entrance of which giveth

him with a hard place to hold on the
rampart. And remember that it does
not in the least matter what happens
to you?whether a clumsy school-fel
low tears your oress or a snrewa one
laughs at you, or the teacher doesn't
understand you. The one thing that
does matter "is that none of these things
should vex you.
"Say to yourself eachjmorning, j st
after your prayers, 'Whoso forsaketli
not all that be hath cannot be my disciple.'
This is exactly and completely
true, meaning that you are to give all
you have to Christ to take care of it
for you. Then if he doesen't take care
of it, of course you know it wasn't
worth anything. If he takes anything
from you, you know you are
better without it.
You will not, indeed, have to give
up houses and lands, or boats or nets;
but you may, perhaps, break your favorite
tea-cup or lose your favorite
thimble, and might be vexed about It,
but for this second Saint George's precept."?Se'ected.
