Father, I bring this worthless child to Thee,
To claim Thy pardon once, yet once again.
Receive him nt My hands for he is Mine.
He is a worthless child, he owns his guilt,
Look not on him he cannot bear Thy
Look Thou on Me; his vileness I will hide.
He pleads not for himself he dares not
His cause is Mine I am his Advocate.
By that unchanged, unchanging oath of
By each pure drop of blood I lost for him,
By all the sorrows graven on My soul, 1
By every wound I bear I claim it due.
Father, Divine, I cannot have him lost!
He is a worthless soul, but he is Mine.
Sin hath destroyed him; Bin hath died in
Death hath pursued him; I have conquered
death; t ,
Satan hath bound him; Satan is My slave.
My Father! hear him not not him, but Me.
I would not have him lost for all the world
Thou for My glory hast ordained and made,
Because he is a poor and cos trite child,
And all his every hope, on Me reclines.
I know My children, and I know him Mine,
By all the tears he weeps upon My bosom,
By his full heart that besteth against Mine;
I know him by his sighing and his prayers,
By his deep, trusting Iov which clings to

Weak as he is, the weakest of My flock
The one that grieves Me most, that loves Me
Yea, though his sins should dim each

I measure not My love by his returns:
And though the 'stripes I send to speed him

Still he is Mine. I drew him from the

The Importance of discriminating
Between Things that Differ.
The power and willingness to make
discriminating judgements are at once
marks of candor and evidences of
training. The difference between the
disciplined and the undisciplined
mind is, perhaps, as well measured
by this as by any other single test.
The careless thinker clumsily puts
men and things together into the
same category because they have, to
his unpractised or prejudiced eye, a
single, and perhaps superficial, quali
ty of resemblance. It is easy to class
men into two kinds good and bad,
wise and ignorant, conservative and
progressive and to remand each in
dividual to one class or the other. It
is very noticeable that uncultivated
men are generally either pronounced
in their approval, or vehement in
their condemnation, of the persons
whom they know. They are seldom
heard, when an estimate of some ac
quaintance is called for, to judicious
ly state good and bad points impar
tially. Their declarations are sweep
ing and without discrimination.
The ground of this fact is evident.
Such judgments are determined by
prejudice-by likes and dislikes. They
may be scarcely worthy the name of
"judgments" at all; they are the
hasty declarations of the thoughtless,
untrained mind. This statement is
made without forgetting the fact that
many persons who possess "large
knowledge, and who are accounted
cultivated men, continually pass
judgments of this character. It re
mains none the less true that the
habit is the mark of an uncultivated
mind. There are many minds which
are remarkably well-informed which
are by no means truly cultivated.
Such sweeping and indiscriminate
judgments are often heard and read
in the disputes of great scholars a
proof that scholarship and culture are
not equivalent terms.
Qualities of character that differ in
kind should be distinguished. Ele
ments of strength, points of good
ness must be separated from objec
tionable characteristics, and not lost
in a general and unsparing condem
nation. Men must not always be
classed together because of a single
point of liki ness. These who agree
in some important opinion may be
very unlike in character. Those
who may Agree In taking the same
general point of, view, not infrequent
ly differ widely as to the application
and bearing of the common idea.
Yet nothing is more common in such
cases than to Ignore all these varia
tions, and to insist upon attributing
to all the qualities or opinions possess
ed by only a part. How common is
this in all seasons of heated debate!
It is one of the tricks of controversy
which reveals to the thoughtful mind
the disingenuousness which always
attends the conflict of opinions and
policies. It thus appears that such
habits of judgment have moral as
well as Intellectual defects at their
root. When exercised in pronounc
ing upon character, and in the group
ing of men from external or only
general resemblances, they betray
that want of clear nnd penetrating
moral insight which exposed them to
the censure of Jesus when he charged
a more fatal obliquity upon those so
judging than they were wont to dis
cover in the objects of their judgment.
(Matt. vii. 1-5.) r : ? v
There are, perhaps, greater, tempta
tions to misjudgments in estimating
characters than in discriminating be
tween different views or ideas. The
personal element lends a peculiar
warmth and intensity to the judg-
ment which throws It out of its just
balance. But failure to discriminate
in the sphere of opinions and princi
ples is not less common, and not "less
really indicative of defective mental
insight. The whole process of edu
cation has as one of its chief objects
the sharpening and strengthening of
the judgment, so as to make it
capable of rightly distinguishing
things that differ. The more exact
ing studies which are pursued fail to
confer upon us their chief benefit if
they do not develop in us the power
and, to some extent, the habit, of
making nice and accurate discrimina
tions between :- ideas or opinions
which, though related, or apparently
similar, are really different.
In what ways may one develop
this power? A wide acquaintance
with men is useful to this end. We
need to come into contact with men
and ways of looking at things. The
man who moves in a very limited
circle, who is intimate with only a
few persons, and those substantially
of his own style of thinking, is like
ly to have too narrow an outlook to
be able candidly and impartially to
consider all sides of disputed ques
tions, and to estimate judiciously the
varying opinions concerning them
One must be in touch with a wide
range of thought upon a given
subject, to be able to appreciate
the weight and bearing of judgments
formed from very diverse points of
view, before he can closely estimate
all types ot opinion, discriminate be
tween kindred views regarding the
matter, and form a thoroughly well
considered judgment himself.
Another help to intelligent dis
crimination is the study of history
particularly the history of particular
views or ideas under consideration.
This study not only supplies netdful
information which forms a basis for
judgment, but develops in the mind
the historic spirit, which is one of the
highest achivements of sound men
tal training, The man whose mind
has been enriched by such study is
easily discovered by an adept in the
subject upon occasion of even the
most casual remarks upon it. How
impossible for the man who has none
of this power to disguise the fact that
his mind is steeped in prejudice or
distinguish degreo or different types
in opinions which are opposed to his,
necause his own view has become a
blinder which cuts off the whole field
of vision that lies beyond his cherish
ed conclusions, instead of a glass
through which he might see and esti
mate those of others. Narrowness

may, indeed, pertain to opinions
which rest upon a defective range of
information; but more commonly it
is a quality of mental and moral char
acter, not necessarily associated with
any particular opinion or set of opin
ions, but connected with a defective
training of the judgment.
The practice of distinguishing things
that differ Is seen to be the evidence
of the charitable spirit. It is in no
way inconsistent with the 'utmost in
tensity of conviction ; so far from be
ing synonymous with indifference to
truth, it springs from the very jeal

allussions to the matter in question!
One ? reat advantage of discrimina
ting habit here describee is, that it
tenus to loster tne quality wnien is
strikingly called in the Scripture
"the meekness of wisdom." When
one really sees a subjeot on all its
sides, and justly estimates the views
which many equally strong and can
did minds entertain regarding it he
cannot well remain committed to
that lanatical onosiueuness which is
generally born of a zeal which is in
inverse ratio to knowledge. The
thoughts of others may not lead him
to change his own opinion they
ought not to do so if he has good
grounds for his view but they will
temper his mind with a wholesome
regard for the opinions of others,
which is but another name for humil
ity in the holding of his own. It is
not the opinions of men, but the way
in which they hold them, which de
termines whether they are narrow
and intolerant or not. The man who
laKes a narrow view 01 a subject is
not necessarily the man who takes an
old traditional view. lie is the
narrow man w ho can see nothing in
any view hut his own; who is inca
pable of appreciating any points of
strength which an opposing opinion
may present and who is unable to

Mothers, don't scold! You can be
firm with your children, you can re
prove them for their fault, you can
punish them when necessary, but
don't get into the habit of perpetual
ly scolding them, it tloes them no
good. They soon become so accus
tomed to faultfinding and scolding
that they pay no attention to it.
Or, which often happens, they grow
hardened and reckless in consequence
of it. Many a naturally good dispo
sition is ruined by constant scolding,
and many a child is driven to seek
evil associates because there is no
peace at home. Mothers, with their
many cares and perplexities, often
fall into this habit unconsciously, but
it is a sad habit for them and their
children. Watch yourselves and
don't indulge in this unfortunate and
often unintentional manner of
addressing your children. Watch
even the tones "of your voice, and
above all, watch your hearts, for we
have divine authority for saying that
