THE MOTHER'S INFLUENCE.
The influence of the mother over
her children is powerful. She has
them largely under her care during
the years their character is in process
of formation, and they are what ahe
makes them. Her work is a difficult
and delicate bne.-'IIer patience ' is
sorely tried. She has to contend
with a depraved nature, sinful com
panions, and the wiles of the devil.
At the time, her work is unnoticed,
and she Is not,Inepircdby the.'praine
of others. She has nothing to sus
tain her, save the consciousness that
she is doing right jit la,, up wonder
that she is, often dlacourgedA. 11 ... J
Discouraged mothers will do well
to study ,the story of. Timothy, the
disciple of Lystra w iWafter wards jbe
came pantor of the . church til I-?phe
sus. Ills mother "was a Jewess and
believed; but his father was a GreekVj
and therefore for whatever religious
instruction he received in his home,
he must have;' been indebted to his
mother. ' iri. two Jainllhir passages,
Paul speaks of Timothy's home-training
as an unquestioned and promi
nent instrument of his faith and sal
vation i ,'! call to remembrance the
unfeigned faith that. is in thee, which
dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois
and thy mother Eunice"; "From a
child thou hast known the holy
Scriptures, which are able to make
thee wise unto salvation."
Remember Timothy's native place
and surroundings. Lycaonia was one
of the Interior provinces of Asia Mi
nor, on which Greek and Roman
civilization had made little impress
sion. , The people of Lystra, the city
of Lycaonia in which Timothy lived,
were ignorant and superstitious idola
ters, as is evident from the fact that
they regarded Paul and Barnabas us
heathen deities, and were about to
offer a sacrifice in their honor. There
could le no more unpromising field
for missionary,-. labor, according to
human measurement, than rude Ly
eaonia. f U.we had had the Apostle's
ear. we would have advised him to
confine his labors to wealthy Antioch
or cultured Athens, or some other
centre of life and activity, and not to
spend his time and strength in Kuch
an out-of-the-way place. And yet
neither -Antioch. nor Athens, nor
Corinth.nor Ephesus gave the Church
a man like Timothy. Why? We
are safe in saying that one reason was
because Timothy's heart was pre
pared to receive the eospel by his
What congregational advantages
he enjoyed, we do not know. It
would seem that the Lumber of Jews
in Lystra was small. It is not prob
able that there was any synagogue,
Likely there was only a "praying
place" in some retired spot outside of
the city, in which a few children of
Abraham met for their weekly wor
ship. But Timothy enjoyed home
advantages. He knew the law, the
prophets, and the Psalms better than
many who lived in the City of David
He had a Oentile father, but he ; was
more of a Jew than many in whose
veins flowed the pure blood of Abra
ham. '" And so, when the gospel was
preached at Lystra, his heart, pre
pared by early training, at once re
eeived the truth and accepted Jesus
as the promised Messiah. Paul un
doubtedly sowed the seed, but Eunice
had prepared the soil by years of pa
tient and faithful labor.
No one can read the story of Timo
thy without being convinced that his
conversion and usefulness, so far as
human instrumentalities were con
cemed, were largely due to his pious
mother's influence, Let the mothers
of today lay this story to heart. The
future of the Church is in their
hands. If there are to be Timothys
there must fltst.be Eunices. They
have advantages which that mother
in Lystra did not possess. They d
not dwell in the midst of idolaters
There are educational institutions to
assist tliem. They can easily intro
duce their sons ami daughters toiom
panions who will not be a stumbling
block. The spiritual dangers, whic
nesei me young in our towns atu
cities, are great enough, but they d
not compare with those of Lycaoni:
If Christian mothers will take God
a- their helper and the word of (Sod
as their daily text-book, they can
guard their children from dangers,
and through ihn Scriptures make
them '"wise unto salvation through
Christ Jesus." The wickedness of
idohitroiw Lystra is no match for the
influence of a pimn mother. The

their hnrior at Cm feet of the Eunice-

Rev. A. J. Rnynol Is in Mid Contiiieut.
Personal responsibility to God is
taught everywhere in the Scriptures.
"I have written to him the great
things of my law." Hosea viii, 12.
"I," "him,", "my,"- these, personal
pronouns are emphatic. Daniel Web
ster was once asked when surround
ed by friends, what was the greatest
thought that had impressed his mind,
and he answered, "The greatest
thought that has ever dwelt in my
mind, Is my personal responsibility
to God." . He was right.
And yet" fallen 'unregenerate men
desire td escape this thought. They
pay; "There is no personal God. Let
us cat and rlnk, lor tomorrow we
ale, ena our souis win oe nioueu oui
of existence. We shall escape per
sonal accountability io God.'li -What
anerrt ! Qod..(yJ jhat we rnust
meet him. "We must all appear be
fore the judgment seat of Christ, that
every 'one jnay r receive jtfie things
done in his body, according to that
le. hath doner whether it be good or
bad,' How impressive is the follow
ng verse :
From Adam to hi vouugest heir,
No one escaped that muster-roll.
Each as if he alone were there,
Stood up, anil won' or lot his mini.
Personal responsibility must be felt
by every true man. Let us note a
few Bible examples. Joseph said
'How can I do this great wickedness,
and sin against God?" Nehemiah
said "Shall such a man as I flee?"
Esther said "If I perish, I perish."
Jesus said "I must work the works
of him that sent me." Peter and
John declared they must do right In
the sight of God. r,
This sense ot personal responsibili
ty to God strengthened the Pilgrims
in coming to America, the Hugue
nots in bearing persecution, Cromwell
and Washington in governing.
We find God in the Bible often
speaking to individual men and wo
men. And so in reality he addresses
us individually. God spoke person
ally to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Mo
ses, David,- Isaiah,, Daniel, t Ezekiel,
and to all the prophets. This shows
that God sends SX!Cial messengers to
special persons. So to speak, he ad
dresses a special letter to every one of
us. Here it is:
"For he saith, I have heard thee in
a time accepted and In the day of
salvation have I succored thee; be
hold, now is the accepted time; be
hold now is the day of salvation."
This letter is from God to (hee con
cerning the great subject of salvation.
Now is the time. Give attention.
Read it and act in accordance with it.
Blest in Not Receiving.
We are commonly in the habit of
thinking that we are blest only as we
receive those things which are good
and blessed. Hnt it is a fact that we
are o.ten messed, ly not receiving
what we think would bless us. There
tire net h few things, which are good
in themselves, that God does not al
low us to have, just because they
would not be a blessing, but rather a
curse, to us as individuals. They
might be-a blessing to others, because
others would make a better and
holier use of them than we would.
Eor example, power Is a good thing.
There is no better thing than the
power of God; but he knows that It
would not bo a real blessing to some
of us were we to have a very large
measure of his power, because we
would yield to the temptation to
make a bad use of it. Some good
Christians pray for a great abundance
of divine power, but they do not re
ceive it to them. They would harm
themselves by It, and damage the
cause of Christ by it. Suppose that
some of us could possess the power
that Christ did ; would we not be
very likely to use it, at times, with
too great harshness and unwisdom?
Would we hold it in compassionate
check when our enemies sought to
strike us down? Would we keep
humble under the great results which
would flow from it? Ah ! let us
hesitate before we seriously ask God
to grant us a great deal more pow r
than we already have. Uut there are
other things which God withholds
from us, and it is a merciful blessing
that he does, for we, in our folly,
would be very likely to misuse the
gifts if they were received. As fast
as we prove our ability to use well
what we already possess, God will
doubtless add to our possessions, and
bless others and ourselves in the cm-
j ploymont of them.

THE SEPOY REBELLION.
Caiihen Which Operr.tml to Bring About
the Tcrible Indian Mutiny.
Tho causes which operated to bririfr
about tho terrible Indian mutiny of 1857,
known as the Sepoy rebellion, were va
rious. Tho Princes who had been de
prived of their powers by the East In
dian Company had boon uctlve in stir
ring up a general discontent. The Brit
ish had raised and armed a large native
force, which was drilled and commanded
by British officors. This force wascoin
posed partly of Sepoys of Bengal, who
wore by religion high caste Brahmins,
and partly Mohammedans. These
troops canio in time to realize that
British power In the East largely de
pended upon them for maintenance, and
therefore grew arrogant and displayed at
times a mutinous spirit. Good manage
ment on tho part of tho officers, howev
er, for a long time provented an out
break, and besides, a most bitter proiu-
dico existed between the Mohammedans
and tho Brahmin soldiers which pre
vented their acting togother. But it
was religious fanaticism that proved at
last tho immediato cause of tho trouble.
Early in 1S57 Enfield rifles had been
substituted for the smooth-bore muskets
of tho native tropps. It was
necessary. to secure accuracy
of aim with the new gun, to uso
a tightly-fitting cartridge, and this was
greased with lard that It might be more
easily rammed in. Tho manual of arms
required that the soldier, In loading his
piece, should blto off the end of the
cartridgo with his teeth. Now, to the
Brahmin and to the Mohammedan also,
the swine is an abomination. To toush
or tasto tho fat of this animal is defile
ment and sacrilege, and to tho Brahmin
Is total loss of caste as well. Tho do
posed Princes had tried to stir up disaf
fection among the people by telling
them that tho native religions were to
bo overthrown, the sacred institutions
of casto destroyed, and tho people made
to adopt the faith of the Invader. Tho
introduction of tho greased cartridgo
seemed to be a confirmation of theso
statements, and a storm of mutiny broke
out. Although, as soon as the objection
to tho greased cartridgo became known,
the native okliers were allowed to pro
paro a lub. icant In which there was no
animal fat, nothing could stay tho wave
oj popular wrath. We can not tell you
how many of the Sepoys were put to
death by being blown from the mouths
of cannon. According to somo historians
a largo number were thus destroyed.
The excuso given by tho British for
adopting this atrocious method was that
tho Sepoys care little for death, but
were horrified at tho thought of mutila
tion. Chicago Inter Ocean.
