-1 Comment by Ilev. S. II. Doyle.
Topic. Tho gift of power. Acts i, 1-8.
Power was to follow the gift of tho
Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is the
power in the Christian's heart and life.
Just before the deah of Christ. He
promised His disciples that, though He
was to leave them, another would come
to replace Him, even the Spirit of Truth,
and that He wonld abide with them for
ever. With His'coming the power was
to coma "Ye shall receive power after
that the Holy Ghost is come upon you."
1. The gift of the Holy Ghost, ana
consequently the gift of power, wascou
ditioned upon obedience. They were
commanded to tarry at Jerusalem for
the promise of the Father, which was
the promise of the Holy Ghost. To oDey
required faith Obeying in faith, we are
not snrprised to know that they soon
met and prayed for the gift of the spirit
and power. Obedience, faith and prayer
are still the prerequisites to the recep
tion of the Holy Ghost for power.
2. The power given was to be power
for Christ. They were to receive the
power through the gift of the Spirit
and then to be witnesses unto Christ,
both in Jeusale'm and Judaea, inSamaria,
and into the uttermost parts of the
earth. In tho power of the Holy Ghost
they were to declare Christ to bo the
Saviour and Redeemer of the world. This
would insure the success of their mis
sion and their message. Only tho Holy
Ghost can seal home tho truths of
Christ to unregenerato human hearts.
What we always need in presenting
Christ to men or in undertaking any
form of work for Christ is Holy Ghost
power. We can't succeed in spiritual
work without Him. It is not by might,
not by power." but by the Spirit alone,
that snecess can crown our labors.
"Paul may plant Apollo's water, but
God must give the increase. " The Holy
Ghost is the particular person in the
Godhead who furnishes this divine
power for successful testimony and
3. The apostles fulfilled the condu
tidns imposed upon them and received
Holy Ghost power. So may wo. God is
more willing to give His Spirit to them
fhat ask Him than earthly parents to
give good gifts to their children. The
apostles had no monopoly of the power
of the Holy Ghost. The gift of tongues
has ceased, but not the gift of power.
The Spirit is to abide with us forever.
Let us beliove, obey, pray, that wo may
have a fresh lxiptism of tho Holy Ghost
for servico and for work.

Some Rnlea For Christians.
You must acquire a habit of living
by the minute. Trust in God now. Do
God's will now. Do not offend God.
Now yon are to act for the future, but
act by tho moment "Be careful for
nothing, but in everything by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving let
your requests be known uuto God."
Do all you do in the name of the
Lord Jesus. Tho Saviour expects you to
dress, eat, drink, spend your time, tal
ents, property and transact business
with reference to the same object for
which yon pray," read your Bible and
worship Gcd. Whether, therefore, ye
eat or drink or whatsoever ye do. do all
to the glory of God.
Cultivate the deepest reverence in
your approaches and addresses to God.
Never allow yourself to use light or
irreverent expressions of God or His
work. Remember you are a "temple of
the Holy Ghost, "" Therefore be carefnl
and walk softly before God. "I am the
Almighty God. Walk before Me and be
thou perfect." Presbyterian Banner.
The great truth of human brother
hood implies positive obligations. The
fact that every one has some influence,
that it is possible for him to be useful
to his fellows, implies that it is his duty
to exert his infinence in the right direc
tion and to assist his brethren as oppor
tunity may offer We owe cur fellow
men not only material assistance, if
needed, but also a helpful spirit and
uplifting example. We owe humanity
an interest in its well being and pure,
generous, unselfish personal lives. And,
above all. we owe to the individuals
who compose society, brotherly tender
ness, kindness and love. Theso things
all can give, and he who withholds
them Godwill not hold guiltless. Uni
Candidly, are we. every oue of ns.
reading and studying the Scriptures to
find out what they teach, or are we try
ing ingeniously to construe them into
teaching what we want them to teach?
Are we honestly trying to bring our
actual experience into perfect harmony
with the Bible, or are we trying to make
the Bible fit into our experience? Are
we accepting revelation at the risk of
personal, social, political, national, uni
versal revolution 1 Are we afraid of the
Bible or afraid it will not have its full
having sway at all times, in all places,
among all people, under all circum
stances? Christian Standard
The sermons of Jesus were popular.
They reached the people His address
was direct, and His illustrations were
as clear as they were simple. He never
theorized nor discussed doctrine. With
Him religion was a life, .not a scheme.
Schemes, theories, doctrines, have their
day, and then they.pass away But life
is the same yesterday, today and for
ever. To bepopniar is not to be vulgar.
It is to be serviceable. Reformed
Sure to Move.
The prayer that starts from God's
promise is snre to move His hand.

Dnn Review .Noted Iliij Trade ly Specu
lators 3Iy Wheat Itose Situa
tion In Iron.
New York, May 20. R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trado issued to
day said iu part:
While buying 200,000 tons Bessemer
pig at Pittsburg gave reason for the ad
vance in price to 10.50, -with 'Grey
forge, quoted at 15 per ton, it is not
quite as clear as it might be - that tho
output, which -was 22o,000 tons weekly,
according to the Pitlsbnrg record, and
has since been largely increased, bv
the addition of many furnaces, will con
tinue to fall below the demand.
Speculators are doing a large business
in wool, some forcigu ana some Ameri
can. Tney have bought about 7,000,
000 iouuds Australian wool in bond
here, as is now reported, and about
1,000,000 pounds domestic torritory wool
is also saiu to nave been sola lor export,
at about 42 cents clean. But this does
uot cast much light on tho question
whether speculative sales abroad have
yec Deen covered, or will Do witlnn a-
short time, nor is thero any indication
that tho market here-will respond to tho
temporary foreign demand. Tho orders
forwoDlen goods are decidedly better,
and although tho woolen aksooiation is
not yet in operation, it seems to have
given a certain kind of confidence to
prices iu the woolen goods department.
May wheat has been rising during
the nast week about 4 cents, and nobody
cau tell why, although the exports iu
the past two weeks have been 10,5C0,00G
bushels, flour included, against 8,135,124
bushels last year. Better shipments
were expected after the opening of
navigation and there is really no use in
considering tho dreams of western
speculators and crop reports at this
Failures for tho week have been 147
iu the United States, against 250 last
year, and 17 in Cauda, against 29 last

C0EKUPTI0N OVER THE DEAD
Ghoulish Testimony Ilcfore the 3Iazet
Committee Witnesses ou Other
New York, May 20. A feature of the
sessions of tho Mazet investigating com
mittee was the unearthing of an alleged
system of corruption in the disposition
of dead bodies from a city hospital; a
ghoulish rale that was well corroborated
and replete with detail. By several -witnesses
it was stated that an undertaker
named Marren illegally secured the
funeral of all bodies taken to Harlem
hospital aud that he was enabled to do
this by bribing clerks in the employ of
the city to break the rules. It was also
shown that apparently an acquaintance
ship existed between Marren and Messrs.
Croker aud Carroll.
A large number of 'witnesses were
called and a multiplicity of subjects
were touched upon during the examina
tions. Another effort was mado to get
the bookmaker, James Mahoney, to ac
knowledge that he was connected with
poolrooms, but tlus witness added noth
ing but a little mirth to the proceed
ings, though he refused to deny the
many accusations made against him.
The old question of sewer pipe and
the connection between the Contractors'
Supply companj- aud the city depart
ments was gone into, several witnesses
being called, but the only apparent im
portant point elicited -was that Richard
Croker. had objected to his son's going
into this concern when he learned that
it intended to supply city departments.
