Tho Dcncon's Weck.
The communlon servico of January was
just over in tho church at Sugar IIollow,
and people were waiting for Mr. Parkes
to give out the bymn, but he dld not give
it out ; he lald his book down on tho ta
ble, and looked about on his church.
He was a man of Blrnplicity and sincor
ity. fully in earnest to do his Lord's work
and do it with all his might, but he did
sometimes feel discouraged. His congre
gation was a mixture of farmers'and me
chanics, for Sugar IIollow was cut in two
by Sugar Brook, a brawling, noisy stream
that turned the wheel of many a mill
and manufactory, yet on the hills around
it thero was still a Bcattered population,
eating thoir bread in the full perception
of the primeval curse. So he had to con
tond with the keen brain and skeptical
comment of the men who piqued them
selves on power to hammer on theological
problems as well ae hot iron, with the
jealousy and repulsion and bitter fSeling
that has bred the commuuistic hordes
abroad and at home; while perhaps he
had a still harder task to awaken the
sluggish souls of those who used their
days to struggle with barren hillside and
rocky pasture for mero food and clothing,
and their nights to sleep the f ull sleep of
phyaical fatigue and mental vacuity.
it seemed sometimes to Mr. Parkes that
nothing but the trump of Gabriel could
arouse his people frorn their sins and
make them believo on the Lord and fol
low his footsteps. To-day no a long
time before today, he had mused and
prayed till an idea took shape in his
thought, and now he was to put it in
practice; yet he felt peculiarly respon
sible and Boleinnizsd as he looked about
him and foreboded the success of his ex
periment. Then there flashed across him,
aa worda of Scrinture will come back to
the habitual Bible reader, the noble ul-
terance of Gamaliel concerninc Peter and
his brethren when they stood before the
conneil : If this counsel or this work be
of men, it will come to nought ; but if it
be of God, ye cannot overthrow it."
So with a sense of strength, the minis
ter spoke : " My dear friends," he said,
" you all know, though I did not give
any notice to that effect, that this week
is the week of prayer. I have a mind
to ask you to make it for this once
a week of practice instead. I think we
may discover some thinge, some of
the things of God, in this mauner that
a succeesion of prayer-meetings would
not perhaps so thoroughly reveal to us.
Now, when I say this, I don't mean
to have you go home and vaguely en-
deavor to walK etraignt in tne oiq way ;
I want you to take ' topics,' as they aro
called, for the prayer-meetings. For in
stance, Monday is prayer for the teuiper
ance work. Try all that day to be tem
perato in speecb, in act, in indulgence of
any kind that is hurtful to you. The
next day is for Sunday-schools ; go and
visit your scbolars, such of you as are
teachers, and try to feel that they have
living souls to save. "Wednesday is a day
for fellowship meeting ; we are cordially
invited to attend a union meeting of this
sort at Uantam. Few of us can go twenty
five iniles to be with our brethren thero ;
let us spend that day in cultivating our
brethren here ; let us go and see those
who have been cold to us for some reasou,
heal up our breaches of f rieudship, con
fess our shortcomings oue to another, and
act as if, in our Maater'a words, ' all ye
" Thursday is the day to pray for the
family relatione ; let us each try to be to
our farailieson that day, in our measuro,
what the Lord is to his faniilv, the church,
remembering the words, 'Fathers, pro
voke not your children to auger.' ' llua
bands, love your wives, and be not bitter
against them.' Thesa are texts rarely
commented upon, I have noticed, in our
conference meetiugs ; we are more apt to
speak of the obedience due from children,
and the Bubmissiou and meekuess our
wives owe us, forgetting that dutiea are
" Friday the church is to be prayed for.
Let us then each for hitnself try to act
that day as we think Christ, our great
Exemplar, would have acted in our places.
Let us try to prove to oureelves and the
world about us that we have not taken
upon us his namo lightly in vain. Satur
day is prayer day for the heathen and for
eign missions. Brethren, you know and
I Know that there aro heathen at our
doors here ; let every one of you who will,
take that day to preach the gospel to some
one who does not hear it anywhore else.
Perhaps you will find work that you know
not of, lying in your midst. Aud lotus all
on Saturday eveuing raeet here again aud
chooao some ono brother to relate his ex
porience of the week. You who aro will
ing to try this tnethod, please to rise."
Everybody rose except old Amos
Tucker, who never stirred, though his
wife pulled athim and whispered to him,
imploringly. IIo only shook his grizzled
neaci ana Bat immovaule.
" Let us siug the doxoloey," said Mr.
Parkes. aud it was buuc with full fervor.
The new idea had roused the church fully;
was Bomeiuiug lixed and posuive to
do; it was the lever-Doint Archimedes
longed for, and each felt ready aud strong
10 move a worm.
Saturday night tho church a?sembled
again. Tue cheerful eagerness was gone
from their faces ; they looked downcast,
troubled, weary as tho pastor expeotod,
When the box for ballots was passed
about, oaoh ono tore a bit of paper from
the sheet placed in the hymn books for
the puriwse, and wrote on it a name. The
pastor said after he had counted them,
" Deacon Einmons, the lot has f allen on
" I'm sorry for't," said the deacon, ris
ing up and taking off hia overcoat. " I
ha'n't got tho bost of records, Mr. Parkos,
now I tell yo."
" That Isn't what we want," Baiu mr.
Parkes. " AVe want to know tho whole
exporience of some ono among us, and
we know vou will not toll us either moro
or less than what you dld exporience."
Deacon .hmtnons was a Bhort, thicn-sei
man with n shrowd, kindly faco and gray
hair, who kept the villago store and had
a well-earned reputation for honeaty.
" Woll, brethren," ho said, " I donno
why I Bhouldn't tell it. I am pretty woll
nshamed of myself, no doubt, but I
ought to be, and maybo I shall profit by
what I'vo found out these flix days back.
I'll tell you just as it come. Monday, I
looked about mo to begin with. I am
amazlng fond of coffoe, and it ain't good
for me, tho doctor says it ain't; but dear
me, it does set a man up good, cold morn
ings, to havo a oup of hot, swoot, tasty
drlnk, and I haven't had the grit to re
fuso I I knew it made me what folks call
nervous and cross before night comes;
and I knew it fetched on spells of low
spirits, when our folks couldn't get a
word out of me not a good one anyway ;
so I thought I'd try on that to begin with.
I tell you it come hard I I hankered
after that drink of coffee dreadfull
Seemsd as though I couldn't eat my
breakfast without it. I feel to pity a
man that loves liquor, more'n 1 ever dld
in my life before ; but I feel sure they
can stop it, if they'U try, for I've stopped,
and I'm agoin' to stay stopped.
"Woll, come to dinner, thero was
another fight. I do set by pie tho most
of nnything. I was fetched up on pie, as
you may say. Our folks always had it
three times a day, and the doctor he's
been talkin' and ta'lkin' to me about eatin'
pie. I have the dyspepsy like everything,
and it makes mo useless by spells, and
onreliable as a weather cock. An' Doctor
Drake, he says thero wont nothing help
me but to diet. I was reading the Bible
that morning while I Bat tvaiting for
breakfast, for 'twas Monday, and wife
was kind of set back with wasbin' and
all, and I come acrost that part where it
says that the bodies of CbriBtians aro
temples of the Holy Ghost. Well. thiukB
I, we'd ought to take care of 'em, if they
be, and see that they're kep' clean and
pleasant, like the church (and nobody can
be clean nor pleasant that has dyspepsy).
But, come to pie, I felt as though I
couldn't 1 and, lo ye, I didn't 1 I eat a
picce right againBt my conscience ; facin'
what I knew I onght to do, I went and
done what I ought not to do. I tell ye
my conscience made lnusic of me consid
er'ble, and I said then I wouldn't never
sneer at a drinkin' man no more, when ho
slipped up. I'd feel for him an' help him,
for I see iust how it was. So that day'a
practice give out, but it learnt me a good
deal more n 1 Knew beiore.
" I started out next day to look up my
Bible olass. They haven't really 'tended
up to Sunday-school as they ought to
alone back, but I was busy here and
there, and there didn't seem to be a real
chance to get to it. Well, 'twould take
the evenin' to tell it all, bnt I found one
real sick, been abed for three weeks, and
was bo glad to see me that I felt fair
ashamed. Seemed as though I heerod
the Lord for the first time sayin,' ' InaS'
much as ye did it not to one of the least
of these. ve did it not to me.' Then an
other man's old mother says to me, before
he comes in from the shed, says sbe, 1 He's
been a sayin' that if folks practiced what
they preached you d ha come round to
look him up aforo now, but he reckoned
you Kinder looked down on miu hands,
I'm awful glad you como.' Brethring, to
was I. I tell you that day's work done
me good. I got a poor opinion o Josiah
Emmons, now I tell ye, but I learned
more about the Lord'a wisdom than
month of Sundays ever showed me."
A smile he could not repress passed
over Mr. I'arkes earnest face. Iho dea
con had forcotten all external issues in
comiug so close to the heart of thitigs ;
but the smile passed as hesaid, " Brother
.hunaous, do you remember what tho
Master said, 'If any man willdo his will,
he Bhall know of the doctrine, whether it
be of God or whether I speak of myself r
" Well, it s so, answered tne deacon,

livin' all the years I'd been a professor,

" Breth-e-ren," interrupted a slow, harsh
voice, somewbat broken with emotion

him, and not to tliinb 'twas the tault ot

Amos Tucker sat down and buried his
grizzled head in his rough hands.
" llless the Lord 1" said the nuavering
tones of a still older man from a far
corner of the house, and many a glisten
ing eye gave Bllent response.
" Go on, Brother Emmons," said the

the heft of that is, it's because I ain't
used to it and I ought to be.
" bo this mornin came round, and 1
felt a mite more chirk. 'Twas 1 mission
ary mornin', and seemed as if 'twas a
sight easier to preach than to practice.
I thought I d begin to old Mis Vedder's
bo 1 put a Testament m my pocket and
knocked to her door. Says I, ' Good
mornin', ma'am,' and then I atopped.
Worda seem to hang, somehow. I didn't
want to pop richt out that I'd come to
try'n convert folka. I hemmed and Bwal

enough, there were ten children iu raga,

I'd never lifted a hand to servo nor save
'em before in all these years. I'd aaid
consider'ble about the heathen in foreign
parts, and give some little to convert 'em,
and I had looked right over the heads of
them that were next door. Seemed as if
I could hear him say, ' These ought ye to
have done, and not have left the other un

brethren. I come home and here I be.
I've been searched through and through

me a sinner."
He dropped into his seat, and bowed
his head ; and many another bent, too. it
was plain that the deacon's experience
waa not tho only oue among the brethren.
Mr. Payeon rose, and prayed as he had
never prayed before j the week of prac
tice had fired his heart, too. And it be
gan a memorable year for the church in
Sugar IIollow ; not a year of excitement
or enthusiasm, but one when they heard
their Lord saying, aa to Israel of old, "Go
forward," and they obeyed his voice. The
Sunday-school flourished, tho church aer
vices were fully attended, every good
thiug was helped on ita way, and peaco
reigued in their homea aud hearts, im
perfect perhaps, aa new growtha are, but
still an offdhoot of the peaco past undor
standing. And auother year they will keep another
week of practice, by common consent.
