Tho Cost of Service.
There can bo no such tiling as
ser vico which dooB not cost. This
is implied in tho primary moan
ing of tho word, which is labor
for another. Labor is tho costli
est tributo which a mau can ren
der, for it involves tho expendi
ture of his own vital onergy. One
may give money or advice at sec
ond-hand, but labor must always
ho a gift at firsthand,
^So 1*t I IK\p/3H>* ..?^"vi"MV^'\.
it costs something. Tho mero
rondo ring of allegiance, the mere
announcing that ono is on Christ's
side, dooa not amount to anything
as sorvice. It is a necessary pre
liminary to service, but that is all.
I It is like matriculating at a uni
? versify-an indispensable prereq
uisite to study, but no wisc
equivalent to tho hard mental
? work which must follow us tin
. condition of obtaining tho ad yan
i tages of tho university course,
i Serving Christ moana, not onlj
I acknowledging Him, but laboring
Lt for Him.* ide rightly dcmandi
I that which costs most-our vita
I and j personal energy. Chris
|0 wanta no soldiers, tho limit o

MR. EDITOR:-A few days ago I 1

farm on tho plantation of Mr. George
Welch that will make two thousand
pounds of seed cotton to tho aero ; and
when tho writer was youug I knew
tho time when that samo land could
havo been bought for ono dollin- perl
acre and would not have mado moro
than ono hundred pound of seed cotton
