"He voit.' So faith tlir evangelist,
Of him, the Holy, Uiulcfiled,
Whom novels 'mid their chanting miHNi it,
Amazed. None ewr said, 'He smiled.'
"Why should He? iSiiiili'H betoken iy;
Itnt sin mid woe and death sufficed
All moriiV sweetness to destroy
Even for the human heart of Christ.
"lie, for the bliss to be revealed,
Wrapped Godhead up in clay, and kept
Its light inefible concealed,
The while he walked thii earth and wept."
Thus spake thepreacher. Softly shy,
A child close caught her mother's hand,
Strong protest flashing in her eye,
II it lips apart with quick demand:
''Does not the Gospel clearly say
Who reads St. Matthew's page may see
That littlo children left their play
To come and sit upon His knee?
"Would tears have drawn the happy child
If tears had made those features dim?
No, no! If Jesus had not smiled,
The children had not come to Him."
Margaret J. Preston.
Driving Evil Thoughts Out.
Nashville Christian Advocate.
There are jfooil reasons for suppos
ing that even the holiest men tire
trouhled at times by the presence of
evil thoughts. The revelations of
biography teach us that t he highest
saintliness is no absolute bar to the
entrance of these intrusive ami un
welcome messengers of Satan, these
foul anfl hateful vultures of the spirit
ual world. That the common run of
Christian people sull'er greatly from
them isquite certain. The most of
us need travel no further than our
own experience for the full confirma
tion of this statement. I low we may,
therefore, guard ourselves again-t the
perils involved in such a fact becomes
a matter of no small consequence. It
is not enough that we !; aware of the
fact itself. Tim highest wisdom re
quires us to form an intelligent
scheme of self-defen-yind consistent
ly to adhere to it. There is little gooil
to follow our mere random lighting
against the suggestions of the rb-vil.
We must study all his methods of
approach and assault, and learn how
to anticipate and neutralize them.
It is the common mistake of young
Christians, and of some older ones,
too, to suppose that evil thoughts
can be driven out of the mind by a
mere naked flat of the will. Such a
view betrays great ignorance of the
elementary laws of our spiritual be
ing. Our control over the processes
that are all the while going on within
us, is, far the most part, only indirect
and mediate. By no single act of
mere self-assertion is it possible for
us to stay the current of these pro
cesses, or to turn it in another direc
tion. Our present states are bound
by the law of association to those that
went before them. A little intro
spection will serve to convince even
the most skeptical of the truth ;f this
assertion. One state calls up another
with undeviating regularity and uni
fonnity. To initiate a new line of
thinking, we must mauage, some
how or other, to introduce a new set
of associations. We cannot pick up
our wicked thoughts neck-and-ears,
and toss them out of our minds by
mere main strength, any more than
we can lift ourselves over a fence by
our boot-straps; but we can accom
plish this great result by calling to
our aid,in ways to be presently noted,
the beneficent influence of purer and
better thoughts. Dr. Chalmers has
written grandly about what he calls
the "expulsive power of a new affee
tion." The meaning of the phrase
is, that, when an enthusiastic love
for the best things is stirred in the
heart, it drives forth, easily and
without effort, everything that is in
collision with it. "We may get rid of
any unwholesome spiritual conditions
by bringing in better ones in their
To be more specific, let us indicate
three ways in which a new train of
associations may be started: First, we
may seek for it in good companships.
This is often a very effective method
If you feel that you are being over
mastered, go and talk to some wise
and true friend. It is not always
necessary that you should mention to
him your difficulty. In fact, it is
often better that you should not do
so. Let the subject of the convcrsa
tion, as far as you can control it, be
of such a character as shall naturally
divert vou from the matters that
have before occupied your attention.
This suggestion, if faithfully heeded,
will bring you material help. Sec
nndlw if no friend is near, get hold
of a good and stimulating book. Iy
good bcok, we do not intend to desig
nate exclusively a treati-e ol devo
tion; it may be a book of theology, or
philosophy, or history, or. poetry; no
mutter, so that it calls you off from
the wrong direction, and sets you
ifoing on the right one. Thirdly, let
it not be forgotten that in genuine
and fervent prayer there is such an
excitement of the nobler iaculties of
our rational and emotional nature, as
suppresses and puts down, as by a
miracle, all base and unholy imagi
nations and desire's. Of course, there
Is no Kuch power in the merely life
less repetition of a' set form of words.
Real prayer is alive; it is aflame
with passionate eagerness and earn
estness; it is penetrated with the
spirit of faith; it asks tor great things,
and gets them. He who has learned
to pray in spirit and in truth has
learned the final secret of victory
over all that is bad and vicious in
his own tjoul, and over all that is. al
luring and dangerous in the snares of
"Deceitful aess oftie Heart."
The late Rev. John Kerr, D. D.,
preaching on the text, "The heart is
deceitful above all things, and des
perately wicked." (Jer. xvn : 9),
said 1. The heart is deceitful he
cause it will not look in upon itself.
It goes out to everything around, to
other men, to pleasure and profit; but
il dislikes self-examination, and so it
does not know itself. The cure is to
submit the heart to God, and ask
him to look in, that we may, look in
with him. "In I lis light wo see
linht." 2. The heart is deceitful, be
cause it is filled with self-love. It is
partial wfvn it looks in, and makes
excuses, as " The temptation was
strong," "I meant well," "I
am not so bad as many, indeed bet
ter than most." The cure is to ak
(ioil to search the heart, lie is im
partial, and judges by the pure, true
standard the inflexible law bv
what lie is, and has done for us.
When we look in with Him we say.
"I abhor myself, and repent in dust
and ashes." 3. The heart is deceitful
because it promises ways of escape
from consequences. "So hard a law
cmnot he put in force; God is too
kind to punish." "If we sutfer.theio
are many more too many to make
punishment possible. Hand will
Join in hand, and bear us through."
"We shall find some way out of it
when the worst comes." So says the
heart. The cure is to bring the heart
to God. "I, the Lord, search the
heart ... to give every man
according to his ways." God is there
for this very end a law-giver, .with
a' law that must be executed, that
will execute itself. "The soul that
sinneth, it shall die."
Be Not Weary in Well Doing.
Every one, man or woman, who h
earnestly trying to make human
lives brighter and better, is naturally
anxious to see the results, and is apt
to become discouraged because they
fail to come in plentifully or as early
as we expected. This is a damper to
one's earnestness and he rushes to the
conclusion that he is of no account in
his particular line of work, and had
better retire from the field and leave
room for those that are wiser or more
energetic. The conclusion may be
correct, for men do often find them
selves in places which they should
not have tried to occupy. At the
same time it is true that a want of
visible and immediate success is no
certain sign that one is in the wrong
In this matter men and women of
desponding temperament, with ten
dencies to discourageraent,can revive
their spirits by reflecting that God's
ways are not as ours. He is never,
we speak it reverently, in a hurry.
He could have made the world by a
word, but he took a long time to un
fold hi3 plan in the system of the
Much more do men advance slow
ly, little by little and step by step
Faithful work for our Master is never
done in vain, however much both
the work and the worker may be
overlooked in their day. The day of
compensation, though it may seem
long delated, will certainly come,
and then the results of the work of
many an unknown but faithful labor
er will assume far greater proportions
than that of those who, if '.their
work was done in a corner, could not
bear that the world should remain
ignorant of it, and thus destroyed all
the real virtue that- was in it, by
their irresponsible ostentation.
The more a man is buffeted aud
wounded, disappointed and humil
ated, wronged ami iersecuted in this
life, the more he comes to fall back
upon the sovereign power of God.
God is just, loving, omniscient, and
almighty. The reins of the world
never slip nor slacken in His hand.
He is never mistaken, never forget
ful nor negligent, never defeated, and
nothing eventuates contrary to His
will. Though Ho tolerates wrongs
temporarily, He will right them.
Though He permit suffering, He sees
clearly the path along which it will
find culminations in peace and joy.
God is as good us He strong, benevo
lent as He is wise, true as lie is great.
We can trust in Him, rest in Him,
and we can assure ourselves that all
that there is ot Him In power,
wisdom', love, is ours. The weakest
of us is in Him stronger than all the
powers of time, circumstance, or ene
mies that may be arrayed against us.
God is our Father, and no earthly
father's love is so pure and true as
His love. Hut for suffering and dan
ger and disaster We should never
know how wondrons a heritage we
have in God.
Heart Failure, Sadden Death. .
The prayer of the christian pleads
for guardianship against sudden
loath, and yet alas, how many leave
l he world for better or for worse
without a single moments warning.
He died of heart failure. The tired
and weary 'heart failed while en
gaged in its momentous task- of
pumping the blood from the arteries
und forcing it into every big and lit
tle vein that tho wasting tissues of
the flesh might be replenished.
How important then that the great
stream of life be kept pure and its
corpuscles red and active, lest the
fluid grows clogged and sluggish,
and the h art in an exlraordinay
effort snaps without' a signal the
thread ol its muscular strength. It is
your duty as oih: who loves the life
that God has given him, to assist na
ture in maintaining free action of
the circulatory system by keeping
the blood in a state of purity and
health. Nature has .supplied healing
and strengthening Ileitis for this
purpose. Science has discovered
what they are and the eminent Dr.
John Bull, oi -Louisville, Ky., has as
Dr. Bull's Sarsaparilla. Demand it
of your druggist. Take no other.
The Usages of Society.
New York Ledger.
Some of what are called the usages
of society are irksome to many of us;
but it will not do to contemn them.
So long as they do not require of us
any sacrifice of principle, it is better
to conform. There can be no harm
in masking mortification with, a
smile, in withholding the expression
of our opinions and sentiments when
their utterance can do no good, in
evading questions which it is against
our interest to answer directly, or in
being polite to people whom we can
not esteem.' Candor-is a virtue, but
it is not advisable to wear one's heart
on one's sleeve in society.
The rule laid down by Pascal, one
of the purest of men and most rigid
of moralists, is a good one : "It is
not a condition," says that excellent
man, "that we state only what is the
truth ; we are bound also not, at all
times, to say all that is true; because
we ought only to give publicity to
things that may serve a useful pur
pose, and not to such aa may cause
pain to individuals without conduc
ing to general utility."
Would that all gossiping busybod
ies would give heed to this sage ad
vice, this sound, Christian logic!

Fathers of the Republic Younj Men.
No fallacy is more firmly fixed In
the public mind than that which
represents the establisment of our
Government as the work of old men.
The delusion is imbibed in child
hood, and Is unconsciously cultivated
by the text books used in school.
The "fathers of the Republic" are
depicted in all the histories with
wigs, queus, and other accessories of
dress that apparently betoken age,
and the. pupil naturally concludes
that they must have been old when
the nation was born.
In point of fact.they were an uncom
monly young set of men. George
Washington, senior in age as in au
thority and influence, was but 43
when the Revolution broke out, and
57 when he became first President;
Thomas Jellirson only 3:1 when be
wrote the Declaration of Indepen
dence; Alexander Hamilton but
when he became Secretary of the
Treasury; James Madison only i!3
when ho was made member of a Vir
ginia Committee of Safety ; and 3(5
when he was Hamilton's great col
laborator in the production of that
political classic "The Federalist."
Nor were the leaders in great en
terprise exceptional in this matter of
age. Forty names were signed to
the Constitution of the United States
on the 17th of' September, 1787.
Leaving out of account four whose
birthdays are not given by the books
of reference, only five of the remain
ing thirty-six had reached the age of
60; twenty of the number were less
than 45 years old ; and twelve were
under 40, among the latter being one
(Hamilton) of 30, another of 29, 'a
third of 28, and a fourth who Jacked
some months of 27 when the conven
tion met. The average age of all the
members did not quite reach 45 years.
The most 'important committee to
which the .instrument jwas referred
for final revision, -consisted of five
members, four' of" whoTn were be
tween 30 and 30 years of age,11 the
fifth and least prominent being 60.
