A haccessful Business Kan Who Was as
Anxious to Do Good as lie Was to Ac
It is not money which is the root of
nil kinds of evil, but the love of it. A
man may bo an energetic money
maker, and yet love it not for its own
sako, but for tho good ho may do by
it Such a man was John Thornton,
a famous London merchant of the last
century. He was sharp-sighted in
business, vigilant in watching oppor
tunities, and quick to see Where a good
bargain might bo made. One morn-
ing, while visiting Ireland to recruit
his health, ho was walking about tho
wharves of Cork. A number of vessels
laden with tallow had just como in.
Mr. Thornton, by a few questions put
to tho persons in charge, learned the
Btato of the tallow market, and then
.. bought each cargo. The adventure,
consummated in a few moments,
cleared him a handsome profit ,
That was one side' of his character
Another is brought out by an incident
which happened the same morning
From the wharves he strolled along un
til ho came to. a .nursery-garden, and
began a conversation with its proprie
tor. Tho latter was a hard-working
man, honest and intelligent, but ham
pered by narrow means. He learned
ail this in the course of the conversa
tion. Mr. Thornton left him and in
quired into his character. That morn
ing the nurseryman was set square with
the world by a check from the man who
was more anxious to do good than he
was to make money.
Another anecdote also illustrates his
readiness to assist those who are doing
their best to help themselves. Meet-
i . ing one day on 'Change a young mer-
chant whose honesty and intelligence
were cramped by Ills small capital, Mr.
Thornton said to him, In bis off-hand
"John, I've thought much of yon
and your circumstances lately. If you
had a larger capital, couldn't you do a
"Yes, sir, I certainly could," an
swered the merchant
"Well, then, thero are ten thousand
pounds at your service. If you pros
per, you will repay me: If you don't,
you shall never hear of the debt"
"I thank vou, sir, for your generous
offer," replied the merchant, aston
ished. "But will you let it stand for a
few days, while I think it over?"
"Take at long as you please, John,
but remember that the money is yours,
the moment you'll accept It'1
Mr. Thornton waited several days,
then calling on the merchant, asked
him as to bis decision.
"I've thought over your kind offer,
sir," answered the young man; "but l
Vmust decline it. If I'lost your money,
u should be very unhappy. Through
the blessing of God I am now doing a
fair business: so I had better remain as
The decision met Mr. Thornton's ap
proval. Mr. Thornton left a son, Henry
Thornton, a great banker, and the
' author of a book. "Family Prayers,"
which has had an enormous sale in
England. That son's spirit and prac
tice were kindred to hi father's. The
Srinciple which ruled their lives is
rought out in a letter the son onoe
wrote to Hannah More. We commend
It to our young readers, who are begin
- stag life.
" ,!itj wife and I," wrote Mr, Henry
Thornton, vhave lately observed how
much happier and better entitled to

V - alow of lift.' have to look back oa
scenes of Christian activity than titer

A Habit Which It I a Christian Duty t
Itrcognlte and Cultivate.
Every one admits that some things
aro sacred. For this reason he treats
them in a becoming way; that is, n
way different from that in which ho'
treats other things. It is stating it
very broadly, but nut too broadly, to
say that thero is no ono so Imbruted
and lost in whom thero is not some
time a sense aroused of respect and
veneration for something which ho
feels is better than other things. In
mon, too, although faith in them has
perished out of a soul, it will see somo
thing in some instances, rare, perhaps,
but genuine, that it ought to tront with
a regard reaching up to or bordorlng
on veneration. So deeply has this
principlo been planted In us that we
can not extirpate it Our sins and
vices may weaken and almost destroy
It, so that for all practical uses it seems
to havo left us, but there is always
enough of it left to tell that, In human
life, it roust remain as an element that
is Imperishable. A Christian duty is
to recognize it and cultivate it so that
It may nave a growing expression, and
gain more and more an ascendency in
First of all wo need to "educate our
reverence for God. Amidst so many
material influences as we huvb to do
with, tho sense of His nearness and aw
fulness may become lessened. We
grow thoughtless about Him. So
many things aro explained to us as
regulated by "laws," that we get to
ignore Him. He is not so necessary in
our judgments as Ho used to be in ex
plaining the phenomena of the world
and accounting for its incidents, and
we, not intentionally, but because we
have neglected to force ourselves to do
otherwise, let Him drop out'of our cal
culations. Under such influence the
heart gets dead, and when the fact of
the Lord's presencoapd sovereignty Is
presented to us, we' aro ready to treat
it with, a sneer. Tho result has not
been reached by reasoning, but by
neglect Some of tho most irreverent
people have grown into their sac
rilegious way.of feeling, and then of
doing, and perhaps speaking, by
simply failing to keep up that thought
of God's nearness which should so oc
cupy all our minds.
We need, also, to maintain our spirit
of reverence towards tho Bible, the
Church, the Sabbath, and other sacred
things given us for our observance. If
one get into the habit of speaking
lightly of the Scriptures, ho is in a
state of decay. A laugh at the Church
is a sign of moral intirnilty. Jesting
at the practices of religious people,
sneering at prayer-meetings, taunting
those who are devout and self-sacrilin-ing
all these are so many proofs that
godlcssness is usurping the place that
belongs to piety. It is a proof, also,
that the higher elements of the charac
ter are being sacrificed, and that the
capacity for the best achievements in
any sphere is being greatly diminished.
Let us think, then, for a moment of
the surrenders of the Christian life,
even although wo hardly like to think
of them, for the richness, tho blessing,.
the privilege of Christian living aro so
great that it hardly seems that there
can be any thing that can in compari
son be called n surrender; and yet I
think wo must distinctly seo that
there aro things that at th'o very ouliet
a Christian must determine to give up.
Mnny Christians would bo unwilling to
use the word surrenders for these,
when so mucli privilege is given in ex
change; but I think we may continue
to use tho word when wo havo tl;us ex
plained it- .What) then, are the things
that wo'must renounce if wo are to de
clare ourselves Christians? Certainly
nothing that should not be given up by
all who are trying to" Jive righteous and
mari'y lives, even ' if they do not call
themselves Christians. 1 long tp mako
you seo clearly' that the Christian life.
Is tho natural, the normal, the perfect
ly human ' life. I am accustomed in
speaking, of these surrenders to divide
them into three classes, and I will bo
speak of them.. First, as a Christian I
will do nothing, that is essentially
wrong: secondly,. I will do nothing
that, although right in itself, will be
wrong for me, becuuse it will keep me
from'drawlug closer to God, and, last
ly, I will do nothing that could put a
bar in the way of any of His other chil
dren whom I long to help, and will not
hinder. Rev. Phulips Brooks, D. D.
Religion and Education.
It la one of the most significant facts
of our civilization, and' one whioh
marks it as Christian, that it is relig
ion which chiefly .fosters and controls
education.. The old universities of Eu
rope wore, founded in tho interests of
religion. The time was when a clerk
and a clerio wcre'the ,samo. One who
oould read was taken to bo a'rellgious
man; In our-1 own country not only
has the whole tone of the public schools
been religions, but they have depended
on the religious principle of 'the peo-
Ele for their support It is a rcmarka
le fact that the vast majority of the
colleges and high schools of j the coun
try, have been founded specially and
avowedly as religious institutions, and
for religious ,DurDoset. It is evident
that solar from .being afraid of learn
ing, religious men nave me mea that
ignorance is their greatett'danger.
So it is that the fruits of .religion ana
nowhere more clearly teen than in its
service in supplying provisions for the
education of 'the people,', and for the
extension of the domain of knowl
edge; So it As that the learning of the
countryL1s chiefly in, the hands of those
who'haye faith In Christianity, 'and
who. believe that the future prosper
ity of, the Nation depends on its hold
ing fast to its faith. So long as learn
ing and religion go. baud in hand our
civilisation is safe. JV. Y. Independ

Introduction This lesson Is a continua
tion of the discourse In the last lesson.
Helps over hard places 7. It is expe
dient for you that I go away; why! (1) Be
cause only when glorified In Heaven could
they see Him as He is in His Divine nat
ure. (2) In bodily presence 'He could be
with but few at a time; now Ho can be
with all alike at all times. (3) By His go
ing away the Comforter came. (4) Be
cause they needed to be trained to live by
faith, not by sight. (5) Only by going
away (by the cross) could He make atone
ment forsin. The Comforter; the Advocate.
One who pleads, convinces, instructs, as
well as comforts. I will tend Ittm: first on
Pentecost, two weeks later, and ever after.
Why could not the Comforter come unlets Jesus
went ateayf (1) There may have been
some reason In, . the counsels of
God wholly unkaonniJo us. But we
can see (2) that 'the Comforter
could not do the great work He was to do
in the new dispensation, till the atone
ment was made, by which He leads mon to
Christ; nor till the resurrection and as
cension, which were proofs He was to use
in corvlnclng mon; nor till Christ was
glorlfled,and so made to appear the Divine,
all-powerful Saviour Ho is. (3) For the.
same reason it waB expedient for Christ to
go away. 8. lteprove: convince, convict.
9. Ofiln, etc.: (1) Rejocting Christ is re
jecting all goodness, for He is the sum of
all. (2) It is rejecting Ood. (3) Only a
very sinful heart could resist His love.
(4) Christ is a perfect standard, and, by
seeing. Him, we aro convicted of our own
shortcomings. (5) Unbelief shows great
ingratitude. 10. Of righteousness: of God's
goodness, and what we ought to be. (1)
Jesus, going to His Father, made men see
His goodness In its true light (2) By dy
ing on the cross He showed perfect obedi
ence. (3) By His death for us He showed
how much He valued our becoming good.
(4) By His going, the convincing spirit
came. 11. Of Judgment: their false views
and standards, and God's true and just
judgment, and that God will judge us for
all tho doeds dona in the body. The prince
of this world; Satan. U judge I: condemned;
the mark of disapproval put upon him;
his plans thwarted and defeated. 13. He
wdl guide you: "the term guide (to thou the
road) presents the Spirit under the lrntge
of a guide conducting a tiaveler in an un
known country. Tuh country is truth."
Into all truth: all the truth, the truth in its
entiie ty. It Is not omniscience or any
kind of speculative or scientific truth
which is promised, but the full
knowledge of living, practical truth
as it is in Christ, and as it
relates to our soul's Balvation. What
Christ taught the disciples we now have in
the four Gospels; what Ho left unsaid, the
additional teaching of the Spirit, we have
In the books that follow. The Goipels, as
well as the Acts and Epistles, come to us
through the agency of the Spirit More
over, this guidance is given to the Church
throughout all ages, leading them by grad
ual processes Into ever higher and Droader
conceptions of Divine truth. 10. A little
while, etc. : they would behold Him no more
in bodily form, but they would see Him
after His resurrection, and then in His
Spirit at Pentecost and His working all
through the ages. 30. But your sorrow shall
ft turned Into Joy: not merely changed fur
joy, but "changed into" so as itself to be
come, so that the very matter of grief shall
become matter of joy (Gal. 0:14).
Goldex Text He will guide you into all
truth John 10:13. ,
Central Truth: The mission of the Holy
Spirit is to convince the world of sin, of
righteousness and of judgment, and to
guide disciples into all truth.
1. Borrow comes at some time to all. 2.
But the sorrows God sends are expedient
for us, for Only through them can come the
fulness and pert ectness of joy. 3. One great
need of the world is to be convinced that
they are sinners and need salvation. 4.
Then they need to be convinced that there
is real goodness, and that it is possible for
them to have it 5. They need to be con
vinced that judgment will come npon
them unless they forsake sin and become
righteous. 6. The greatest sin, the sourco
of many sins, is refusing to believe in Je
sus Christ 7, Those who wholly commit
themselves to the guidance of the Holy
Spirit will be guided Into all truth. 8. We
can test whether we are guided by the Spir
it because what the Spirit teaches always
agrees with tha teachings of Christ

him. Tho minuio a man strikes or
throws a stick at him ho instantly re
sponds by making for him in a line as
straight as tho range of a theodolite.
And no always gets there. But if the
man saw him coming and only had sense
enough to dodge him the hornet
wouldn't get there. And what is more
peculiar, the hornet would go straight
back to tho identical point lie started
from and make another sally for his vic
tim. But just as often as the man kept
dodging ho would never get stung. It
only requires a man with nerve enough
to stand his ground and agility enough
to dodge quicker than the hornet can
fiv to make it nverv interesting combat.
"But of all the spiteful, wicked and
uncompromising insects, save me from
either a yellow-jacket or a wap.
There is no getting away 'from them,
and when they stinc once they sting a
dozen times in different parts of the
body. They keep right at it, and a man
may try to hit them with a stick or his
hat all day and miss them every time.
Wasps make their nests in the ceiling
01 a room or the rooioiaoarn. Hornets
aro generally found in clumps of fruit
trees, shrubbery, or fences." Philadel

In the chancery division of tha high court
ot justice, London, Vios Chancellor Bacon
has given his decision In favor of The
Charles A. Vogsler Company of Baltimore,
Maryland, In the action brought by thai
bouse against H. Churchill ana Company
of Brisbane, Queensland. Tho case which
has been in progress here sirice Heptember.
18S4, grew out of an attempt of Churchill
and Company to register a trade mark con
taining the words St. Patrick Oil In con
nection with a medicinal preparation.
This was promptly opposed by the Vogeler
Company, who, while admitting that the
term and devios which were nought to be
registered by the Anstralian firm were In
no respect identical to the well-known 8t.
Jacobs OH trade marks, contended, how
ever, that sufficient similarity existed be
tween the term Bt. Patricks applied by
Churchill and Companv and Bt, Jacobs as
used by the Vogeler Company to cause eon
fusion in the minds ot the public and lead
to purchasers being decoived. In support
of this position they submitted an over
whelming amount of evidence from En
glish, American and Australian souices
with the result stated. Under the decision
of tho court Churchill and Company can
not register their mark and must pay costs
of the case. This is the sec6nd trade mark
suit won by the Vogeler Company in En
gland within three years.

that in no east) whatever will it fail to core if
the directions are strictly followed and carried
out In a great many cases a (ingle dose has
been sufficient for a cure, and whole families
have been cured by a single bottle, with a per

however, prudent, and in every case more cer

doses for a week or two after the disease has
been checked, more eipecally is difficult and

will not require any aid to keep the bowels in
