Just back of Missionary Ridge, Chat

reach Tunnell11ill, I came across a lit
tle church half hidden in the woods.
The )uilding was primitive, and the ol
darkey who sat on a log by the door was
more so. After I had made inquiries
about the route and was ready to go on
he said .

" Yes, sah. We am gwine to oper

It didn't seem just right to be ridinc
around the country on Sunday, and so
got down and took a seat beside the oh
man. After a few minutes s1pent it
general talk, he said it was tim to g,

The ZEOntion et the Postal sste6di
The first recorded riding-post for any
but governmental correspondenco was
established in Persia by Cyrus, 599 %
years before the Christian or&. -He di
vided his kingdom tip into postal dis- o
tricts and appointed innumerable mes
sengers. These postal messengers of ki
Cyrus went continually, night and day, M
with great speed. The superintendent
of the posts was an important officer. t
Ieforo he became the last Persian King
Darius held it.
The first publid riding-post in Rome V
came 1hin inder Augustus, nearly six 0
Centur'es later. But the Chinese, who h
aro credited with lots of good In those I
days, however bad they may be now,
had a postal 83StIn away back in the t

10,000 and employeti 200,000 horses in
his day, These Chinese post houses a
were also inns, at which suliptionsIt

their felicitous barbarism. Many speci

Apart from the riding-post, pigeons
were extensively employed in the Orient
for the conveyenee of correqiondence.

in v'a4t wealth, oi- in a multiplicity of
p lesur(4, bdt iri fully enjoyidg what w
do here. Tlhey who obver iork bevet
knoW what pleasure there is iniahollday.
But there is another lesson worth nd
ting which this examnple teaches u. It
is best to give while we have the p-ower
to givb. This sta'ement is old and trite,
very trui. But. it is new, brani new as
far as practice is concerned, td the bulk
of maiinkini yet. How many do yoii
know who are enjoying the luxury of
iving? For there is a luxury in giving.
I lie man who can make generous dlonal
tions to all needy' and dleserving objects
should be the happiest of men. Ho
makes the widiow a heart gladl. Hie
feeds the fatherless. Hie cheers the
sick. Men do to him gladly, sure of a
wVelcom1e. ' he chitrch in needl appeals
to htiim and not in vain. The college
looks to him for aid and gets it:. AUl
iloble Christins have in him a helper
ada fv-1'nul. Men's hearts warm
owa'rdl him, because his hteart is warm
towards them. How much botter this
is I han to grow coldI by turning a deal
ear to the want~s of humanity, 'and hay
og your heir's wrangijle over your pr'op
erty w hen you are deadl, and wreck
ctselves by~ its usae. The only wise
course is t o Ira'n childlren wiselv, to
gie themn p 'opjerty only as they~ can
maki e a goo~td use of it, andl to give
:mwnm . as the dhaxs of one's life pass by,
