" I declare, l've half a mind never to

Hvol" Mrs. Trask exolaimed indignantly,
as sho threw her gloves on tho bureau,
and gare a savage jerk to her bonnet
" Why, what new revelation has brought
you to such a dpcision in regard to the
First Church ?" asbed her husband.
" Have your sharp eyes detected some
architectural flaw, rendering the struc
turo unsafe, or is the minister found
wanting in eloquence, or guilty of apos
" Neither, so f ar as I know ; the build
ing is vory beautiful and commodious,
and I greatly enjoyed Mr. Matthew's
preaching. But the peoplel They are
Hke animated ioebergs so hanghty and
distant, I shall never feel at home among
" It must seem very odd and lonely to
yon, my dear, coming as you did from a
church where we had so many warm
friends," was the sympathetic answer;
"yet the people ssem pleasant and social
with each other," he added. " Perhaps
they don't know that wo are entire stran
gers, and waiting for an introduction."
" They will have to continue waiting,
for we have no one to introduce us. For
my part, I think nniting with the church
onght to be safficient recommendation
and introduction for its members to greet
eacb other with a friendly word."
"I think so too, and see nothing im
proper in your setting a good example
by being the first to speak. I saw that
fine-looking woman that sat in front of
us last Sunday introducing herself, and
notioed nhe met with a most cordial re-ception."
" 168 : but allow me to suggest tnat
the elegance of her apparel had muoh to
do with the warrnth of her reception.
What seems a graceful condescension in
silk and velvet, would be regarded as an
irapertinent deraand for recognition in
"Perhaps so. I know the feminine
code of etiquette is terribly severe ; but
tbought perhaps it might besomewhat re
laxed within the pale of the church.
However, such a peculiar rule must have
equal force in all directions. I am sure
it would be quite safe for you to speak to
the lady who sits with her children di
rectlv opposite us."
" What ! The womau with the plaid
shawl and the funny-looking, home-made
bonnet I" exclaimed Mrs. Trask, disdain
fully. " Really, I don't know that I am
particularly anxious to make her acquaint
ance." " Ahem 1 I'm afraid all the pride of
First Church is not enrolled in silk and
velvet," was her husband's reply.
Mrs. Trask colored guiltily as she en
deavored to explain herposition.
"You know, Frank, that I am not
greatly influenced by style of dress, or
even wealth in the selection of my friends.
I could easily overlook the home-made
bonnet, but the face beneath it was
neither intelligent nor refined enough for
me to considerher an acquisition, even to
my present limited circle."
" And yet you might bn a valuable ac
quisition to her circle," Mr. Trask said
earnestly ; " her face was kindly and de
noted strength of character, and the ac
qnaintanceship and and help of one who
had been blessed with superior advantages
might improve its expression materially,
as the good taste and ounning fiogers of
Madam Arnold would that of the objec
tionable bonnet. I think, my dear, that
we should seek to minister, rather than be
ministered unto to give freely, even aa
we have received."
" I am sure I think we giva all that we
are able to," Mrs. Trask replied, purposely
mipconstm'.ug her husband's words she
had nometimes thought hira a little too
liberal, considering his small salary.
."Perhaps we do our duty so far as
money is concerned, although I am not
sure even as to that ; but people are of ten
very liberal with money, yet selfish and
niggardly in the sharing of their most
preoious treasures. We know that in
domestio life, unBelflsh love, not wealth,
is the prime requiaito of happiness. Tho
model family is one where each inmate of
the household contributes generously his
best gifts for the good of all tho rest.
The father environs it with his protecting
care and mature wisdom ; the halo of a
mother's thoughtful love and tender sym
pathy rests upon it ; a scholarly elder son
brings the advanced ideas and knowlcdge
gained from books; his sister the little
graces and reflnements of society. To
one has been given the voice of Bong, and
the home is mado to resound with muslo,
whlle the dark shadows are driven away
by the ready wit of another.
" Such, I believe, sbould be the church
of Christ. Only a larger family, where
each and every member briugs his indi
vidual pifts and lays them freely upon its
altar. Tbe man endowed by his Maker
wlth persuasive eloquence, or finanoial
ability, has no right to keep these talents
solely for the use of the politicalcauous or
counting-room. The woman that has en
joyed auperlor advantages of educatlon
and culture, should eeek to heln tbose who
have been Iess lortunate. ivery Intel
lectual gif t or
bronght to boar
Mrs. Trask thought serlously of her
husband's earnest words during the ensu
ing woek, and for tho first time reallzed
how selflsh had been her life, how narrow
her sphere of usefulnosB. Fossessed of a
oultured mind and rare social qualities,
she had regarded them not as gifts from
God to be usod in his sorvice, but rnerely
as so many stepping-stones placed for her
own convenionco and advancement in so
ciety. Mindful to some oxtont of tho ob
ligations resting upon her, sho had not
been nogloctful of what had been termed
Christian labor ; yet the work for which
sho was really best gifted, had been left
undone. Sho had glvon bread to the hun-
gry, but paid no attention to tho higher
needs of the famishing souls about her ;
she had clothed the naked, but by the
coolness of her reception, had chilled the
heart of her uninteresting guest whotn
her husband had invited to tholr home.
Inexperienced as a nnrse, sho had prof
fered her inefflcient service in sickness to
families whoso threshold sho had never
deigned to cross in timo of health, when
an hour spent in bright, s6oial converse
wlth some tired mother and her growlng
boys might have dono inculculablo good.
She had taken great credit to herself for
seoking the companionshlp only of con
genial spirits and intellectual equals or
superiors. Claiming freedotn from the
pride of wealth, she had yet harbored and
nureed with fondeet care a far more deadly
pride, the pride of culture.
Conscientions and practical, for Mrs.
Trask to see hersin was to repent thereof,
and repentance meant reformation. She
did not leave the First Church, but seeing
thero a broad field of labor, began work
at once, using gladly the best and most
polished implements at her commaud.
bne soon made tne acquaintanco not only
of the woman to whom her husband ftl
luded, but of the sad-faced widow she had
often met in the aisle, the shy yonng
couple, evidently from the country, who
had latoly taken seata, in front of them,
and of the lonely girl she had noticed in
a distant corner of the church. To these,
and many others in the congregation, to
rich as well as poor, her kindly words
and sympathetic friendship brought
strength and comfort, and she felt herself
no longer " a stranger in a strange place,"
but one of many workers in her Master's
vineyard. N. W. Christian Advocate.

NEW FURNITURE STORE !
At a farewell service in Dublin, where
Mr. Moody, as almost everywhere else,
had a great success, he made the follow
ing remarks : " I wish to address a few
words to the young converts about the
importance of their identifying themselves
with God's people, and the quicker voung
converts here do that the botter. I have
heard some people say, ' Why can't we
have meetincs oftener like the meetings
that have been held here of late why
don't we have such meetings in our
churches, and we would always like to go
to them ? Meetings of the class we have
had here, do a great deal of good, I have
no doubt, but then it is not that sort of
thing, good as it is, that wo need, so much
as regular work; and if our meetings
here would unsettle the people, or have
the effect of keeping them from attending
their houses of worship, rather than con
tinue to take part in them, I would go
back to Chicago and eettle down there at
business of some kind or other. I have
heard it said that ministers have an easy
time of it, and that while they preach
only two Bermons in the week, I am at the
work continually. Well, I can say in
answer to suon statements, that 1 was
settled at one period of my life for two
years in one place, and 1 worked harder
when I was then preaching two Bermons
in the week than I have done since, all
the time I have been going up and down
through the country. Clergymea have
many things to do in addition to preach
ing. They have their people to look af ter,
and they have the sick to visit. I would
rather preach fivo sermoHS than go to the
house of mouruing. It takes more sym
pathy and strength from me than preach
ing. Then a minister has to make calls,
receive visitors, and be social ; and after
all that he has to prepare his sermons.
But it has been said, preparing two ser
mons is easy work. If you think so, just
try it, and see how you will get on. If
yon think your minister has an easy time
of it, try his work, and see how long you
will continue at it. Ministers are the
only people, I might say, who don't get
rest. I remember when, during a period
of some five years, I tried often to get
rest, and I uever knew what it was. There
were cases of sickness, there were f unerals,
and there was always something turning
up to occupy the whole of my time. Min
isters should bave, like other men, one
day of rest. Don't let young converts get
it lnto their heads that the minister or
pastor is not an important man. I con
sider that there is no man in the world
more important than a good pastor, and
if you have got one, thank God and pray
for him conBtantly that God may bless
him. Let me urge young converts to join
the minister in his work, and not to be
unBettled as retrards their duty. I be
lieve the dearest thing to the heart of tbe
Son of God, on this eartb, is the church,
and we ought to pray earnestly for its
welfare. We onght also to pray earnestly
for the man of God who preaches, and do
nothing that would cool or kill his inilu
ence or efforts. You talk about the suc
cesB of our meetings here. What would
they have been, if your pastors had not
been sowing tho seed here ior years l And
when the seed is once sown, you may rest
satisfied, a reaping time is sure to come.
I have visited towns where our meetings
were not attended with br much success
as I could have wished. Why ? Because
the ministers were not so much in sym
pathy with the work. If you have any
regard for the truth that has been a bless
ing to you, etaud right by the church of
God, and pray for those that are interested
in her welfare."

A Ilindrnnco to n Great Cause.
The debate on temperance metbods in
tho Presbyterian Assembly at Saratoga,
last week, adds another to the numerous
illustrations of a great weakness in the
temperance movement. There is no
question at all as tothe evils of intemper
ance. .hverybody, at least, in this coun
try, admits them. And it is axiomatic to
say that they exist. The qnestion which
divides those who desire to labor Ior their
removal, is chiefly a question of method.
It is not strange, nor is it unfortunate,
that such differences should exist. While
they are of various degrees of importance,
they are not fundamental, but are alto
gether consistent with tbe general end
all parties have in view. It is, however,
of tho greatest concern that these parties,
each working in its own way, should not
fall out with oue auother, sbould not
waste their strength in an internecine
warfare. There is as great need for toler
ation among temperance workers as there
is among Christians. Thero are differ
ences between Baptists and Prosbyterians,
between Methodists and Congregational
' ista ; but they do not spend their time in
accusing each other, because of such dif-
fereuces, of being poor Christians, much
t less of being anti-Christians. They have

The perpetual din about deoav of Chris-

which is kept up in our periodical litera

It is not our purpose to follow the
' course of debate in the Presbyterian
i Assembly. We only refer to it as afford-
ing an example of thespiritof intolerance
in a bodv where anytbing like mutual
suspicion of uusoundness on tho great
question ought not to be looked for. lt
cropped out more than once, but at no
time more offensively than when a minis
ter spoke of " the learned doctors of di
vinity who come here to discuss Higher
Criticism and are not willing to lift men
from the gutter." This was equivalent to
charging that these " learned doctors of
divinity" are not willing to help the
cause. Such charges are "being constantly
made, and with insufficient reason. Why
was this made V Simply because there
were differences as to the expediency of a
dpclaration concerning prohibition. One
of the comraissioners said that unless the
movement is based.on prohibition by the
state and total abstinence by tbe mdivid
nal, it is based on sand, and intimated
that those who did not occupy this plat
form were eneraies of the cause. This is
unwise and uujust and harmful ; but not
because prohibition and total abstinence
are not right. We believe in them most
thoroughly. We would that every man
were a total abstainer and that prohibi
tion were enforced in every state and ter
ritory in the country; but before thls
great revolutiou is accomplished, several
successive stages must be passed. There
is a vast amount of work to be done in
communities, counties, oities, states, be
fore tho preparation for prohibition is
complete. Every man whose iuflueuce
simnlv leasens the number of drinks an
individual or a community of individuals

I know IIop Bltters wlll bear recommenda
tion honestly. All who use them confer upon
them the hlghest encomiums, and glve them
credit for maklng cures all the proprletors
claim for them. I bave kept them since they
were first offered to the publlc. They took
hlgh rank from the first, and malntained it,
and are more called for than all others com
blned. So long as they keep up thelr hlgh
reputatlon for purlty and usefulness I shall
continue to recommend them, something I bave
never before done with any patent medlclne.
