poor talkers, where talk
amounts to anything. Thay
have not the habit of subjecting
their storehouses of learning,
logic or reason to the severe
test of language. If a man
reads anything which interests
him, ho is very apt to repeat it
in his owu words, This gives
him a command of his thoughts.
Women read but rarely repeat.
This is not so much the result of
natural inclination as of custom.

When talk amounts to any

of women silent ? Is it not be
cause they take little interest
in anything outside the petty

And without interest they

prides herself upon being a

her not forget that her chcle is
very small, and the pursuits
thereof likwise circumscribed.
Among people who amount to
something in the world of last
ing accomplishment, where all
questions affecting the progress
of ages arc eagerly discussed,
and, where minds are too busy
and far-reaching to admit of
cliques which cramp and fetter,
many such mesdames and mis
ses are nonentities, without a
word to say or a sympathy in
common. i ,

of the whole social system, that
so many women say, "Oli,

Flirting as a Fine Art.
" The science of society
amounts to little true art, unless
certain genius goes with the
knowledge; and who will de
ny that there is a certain nat
ural gift for social influence, as
(hero is for all beautiful arts ?
Some persons havo a raro so
cial witchery who have not any
tfther Jbrm of genius,- and soino
women, of very modorata abil
ities in other respects, havo an
art of pleasing that amounts to
facination. One woman in fa
mous attire will gather a great
crowd of notables in a grand
house and give them a great
supper, and nil sliall bo flat and
dull; while same winsome lit
tle body, without any flashy
costume or parade, and even
without rare beauty, will enter
tain her circle of guests in a
charming way of her own, and
make tliem all at home with
her and each other. She plays
upon their tempers and traits
an4 associations, aa a master
hand plays upon the harp or
piano. I have sometimes
thought that womanly charm,
and perhaps even what in the
best sense is called flirting,
could be made one of the fine
arts, and consecrated to charity
and even to, religion, That
bright girl takes that half doz
en striplings in hand, and
touches each in tnrn with play
ful grace, until they are willing
captives to hpr spell, and ready
to buy her pin-cushions or.
watch-chains at the fair, or go
to her church and worship by
ber prayer-book, There is a
line, indeed, beyond which this
flirting ceases to be a fine art,
and becomes quite business-like
and utilitarian, a practical op
eration u making a market
and bagging a husband a
useful but not always ideal re
sult. Yet, as tho world goes,
a great deal of true missionary
work is done by charming wo
men in managing men in an
artistic and legitimate way, aud
the Virgin Mary has not all
the work of such intercession
in her hands or in her eyes, al
though Henry He'ine called
her the counter girl of the Cat h
olic Church, who won over the
Goths and the Vandals. Dr.

"The Still, Small Voice."
Thore was a tang pauso in
the prayer-meeting. Mr. G- ,
the pastor, looked anxiously
from one brother , to another,
but none replied to his glance
by prayer or exhortation. At
length Mr. G said, "Let us
spend a few moment in silent
prayer." Many heads , were
bowed, and the stillness for a
time was unbroken. Then a
gray-haired man rose and said,
"Brethren, pray for mo. I havo
been to many meetings, but I
never felt my sins before as I

seemed to draw near to mo,
and I am crushed to my

Who Will go for Me? and, Whom
Shall I Send?
BY W. E. B.
These questions are two, and
not one. Who is willing to go
for mo ? Who am I willing to
send? arc two very different
things to ask.
Ahimaaz was perfectly wil
ling to run with tidings from
the battle-field - to Eli, the
priest, and tho commander was
willing to lot him run, to no
purpose, because ho was so
anxious to do it, and he was so
anxious to run as a messenger
that he ran without any tidings
whatever, . He was a trained
herald, and could run swiftly
and knew it, and was proud of
it, and so .ran, and that was
all there was of it. He had his
race and outran the real mes
senger, but had no tidings to
givo to Ell' when he had come
where he was.
Are there not trained heralds
amongst us who run well, and
no man, no, not even the Lord,
will hinder him ?
They admire their own agili
ty, and raise great expectations
on the part of others, and it all
comes at last to their own
shame and the disappointment
of their admirers.
There is another question
than, Who will go for me ? It is,
Whom shall I send '?
It is not every one who gets
ordination from the church
whom tho Lord will send,
It is not every one who,
without ordination, gets a circle
hearers whom the Lord has
Isaiah has seen tho Lord
high and lifted up in the throne
of his glory, with worshipping
cherubim on tho right and the
left, and had seen himself in the
light of God's holiness as alto
gether polluted and undone,
and then had been purified by
tho fire of tho altar laid on his
lips. Yet, even then he was
not prepared to go to tho Lord.
Another thing was neccssarv.
He must be more than a pre
pared, athlete; he must have
tidings to bear. . Tho Lord must
give him a message to deliver,
or his running would be utterly
Those whom the. Lord sends
do not run to show thciv own
swiftness, but to bear the Lord's
Our Lord Jesus Christ would
not allow his disciples to go a
step in fulfillment of his great
commission until they had re
ceived the baptism of tho Holy
Ghost and of fire. Ho must
first fill their souls with the
knowledge of his wonderful
work and give them other
tongues, tongues of gladness,
tongues of power, tongues of
fire, before ho - would permit
them to start at all.
And well was it that ho would
not. What kind of tidings
would they have borne if they
had gone forth without tho pen
tecostal endowment ?
Questions about tho kingdom,
as a Jewish kingdom, and the
time when it would be restored,
and who should bo greatest in
it, who sit on tho right hand,
and who on tho left hand, in
power, would have continued to
till their hearts!
Tim wonderful works of God
would never ( have formed tho
burden of their tidings; but
they would havo boon full of
tho wonderful speculations of
men. ' :

The Number Three.
1 A singular ' significance " at
taches itself to the number
three. When the world was
created we find that, there were
land, water and sky; , sun,
moon, and stars. Noah had
but three sons. Jesus was
three days in the tomb. Peter
denied his saviour thrice.
There were three patriarchs
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Abraham entertained three an
gels. Samuel was called three
times. "Simon lovest thou
Me ?" was repeated threo times.
Daniel was put into a den with
three lions for praying three
times a day. Shadrech, Me-
shech and Abednego were res
cued from the fiery furnace.
The ten commandments were
delivered on the third day. Job
had three friends. St. Paul
speaks of faith, hope and chari
ty these three. Those famous
dreams of the baker and butler
were to come to pass in three
day&; and Elijah prostrated
himself threo times on the body
of the dead child. Sampson
deceived Delilah three times
before she discovered the secret
of his strength.' Tho sacred
' i ... r
Iplters onthe cross were I. II,
S.; so also the Roman motto
was composed of three words,
In hoc signo. There are condi
tions of man; the earth, heaven
and hell. There is a Holy
Trinity. In mythology, three
graces ; Cerebus, with three
heads; Neptune holding his
three toothed staff ; Tho Oracle
of Delphi cherished with vener
ation the tripod; and the nine
muses sprang from .three. In
nature we have morning, noon,
and night. Trees grow, their
leaves in three; there, is three
leaved clover. Every ninth'
wave is a ground swell. We
have fish, flesh and foul. The
majority of mankind die at thir
ty. What could be "done in
mathematics without the aid of
tho tri-a'uglo? Witness the
power of tho wedge ; and in
logic three premises are indis
pensable.' ' , '
.The latest phase of tho Khi-
van expedition indicates the
wisdom of tho . old caution,
" Put not your trust iii Princes."
Russia was vehement in her
protestations that her expedition
did not look toward any i acqui
sition of territory, but puroly
toward th : punishment of the
Khan lor tho maltreatment of
Russians, aud their protection
for the future ""Tho protesta
tions aro fulfilled to tho letter,
but broken' in tho spirit. Tho
war indomity levied 1 pn Khiva,

for its ' payment ; ten years.
Meahwhilo Russia is to occupy
the territory,! not for tho pur

A boy was found onboard

hid behind a pile of freight un

"Stealing your passage, ' hey?"
said the second mate, dragging
him to tho light and taking him
to the first officer..

"To be my own master" cried
the boy gruffly ; "that's what
for."- n 1 JiWt
"Well, my boy, I . am afraid
you have chosen a pretty poor
master," said a man . standing
by. "A master who counsels
you to run away from home is
the worst sort of a master."
It is the greatest mistake in
the world for children to ihink
they are capable of being their
own masters, and taking care
of themselves. A kitten, a
dog, a lamb, can betteV take
care of itself than a child can.
Children are longer dependent
upon the kind ofiices of their
parents than any other; young
creature. They have to be
cooked for" and sewed for, and
sent to school, and taught a
thousand things, . befok l'they
can ever be of any use either to
themselves or other .people.
Nobody loves to -.'do all" these
for them so well; as' parents.
And. in return for their care
and Jove, children are bound to

This is God's plan: This is the
way the Son of God. did :when
He became an earthly child, to
show our boys how to do. There
is only one thing told about his
boyhood, and that is, when he
wanted ever so much a to V say
longer in Jerusalem, he. willing
ly gave up to his parents, and
went back to the country.
