THE PRESENT 0UTL00K OF
[Wrltlen by Mra. F.L.Gibbs and pub
llabed by requeat of tbe Wotnan'a For
cign Missionary Socicty of White Stone
M.E. Churcb, South.]
To those of us who enjoy 'the
civilization of our own enlighened
land, to wbom the promises and
mercie8 of our Kather are asonrce of
hope eveu in our deepest sorrows, it
?eeni8 almost increditable to believe
that even at this day there are those
who 8it in the regiou of the shadow
of deatb, without hope of this life,
and of that bleesed hope of life
beyend the grare.
The niissionary idea is still a new
idea. The thought of regenerating
society, and the movement in that
dire:tiou has beendoubtful and slow,
and yet to the thoughtful student of
('od's Word, the command of our
blessed Lord is imperative: "Go,
teach all nations," and it is upon
the bodies of those apostles, who
heroically faced the martyr'e death,
l>earing the gospel into the high
places and tlie dark places of the
world, that the missionary move?
ment has risen und prospered.
A hundrod years ago there were
but few missionary societies in all
Protestautiam; today there are inany.
In China and Japan, in Mexico and
lndia, and even in the dark continent,
zealous and godly men and women
are working for Christ, and at this
time the baptism of cOnverta are
numbered by thousauds.
Statistica ahow that in Africa
alone there are ovvr Ove hundred
missionary stations, numbering tnore
than four hundred thousand couverts,
incrcasing on an average of tweuty
five thousaud aunually. In a few
years there will be rapid trausporta
tion by land or by water from the
ludiau Ocean to the Atlantic, from
Capetown to Cairo. This tneaus an
advauce of civilization; and we know
that civilization is found only in
those Iands where God iskuown, and
the eroaa of Chriat is uplif ted. The
day ia not far diatant when the
scrcaming of the locomotive whietle
and the rumbliug of traffic shall
reverberate through the primeval
forest of darkest heathendom and
awake the natives from their savage
In China, with her milliousof sonls,
the outlook is bright. The work of
this field is eucouraging, especially
when we learn of the work of the
native converts, and that in some
inataucea (rare aa yet) native mothera
are leaving the feet of their little
girl8 unbound and the young men
are inarrying the women of their
own choice. About the beginning
of thia century the country waa
cleaed to all mia8ionary influence.
Today every one of ita eighteen
proviuce8 haa been entered. The
proapect for a univeraity at Peking
and the great desire for univeraal
enlightenment is now the oppor
tunity for missionary zeal and enter
pri8e. Not alone m China are they
stretching out their hands for the
bread of life, but in diatant lndia;
and from Mexico and from the
island8 of the sea, comes the appeal.
In Cuba and Porto Xlico we have no
longer 8trong oppoaition to the
apread of the goapel. The expedi
ency of establiahiug achoola and
churches on theae islanda haa been
recognized and our misaionariea have
already entered the field. The fact
that barriere have been removed, and
in many inatancea doora once closed
to the advauce of ciyilization opened,
is a harbinger of progress in the
apread of Chriatian work, and even
today ia beiugfnlfilled the prophecy.
"The people which aat in darkneaa
saw great light to thera which aat in
the region of the shadow of death,
light is 8prung up." Paat experience
showa that there ia a 8ure reward
for missionary effort. The native
converta themaelve8 are laboring to
aave the souls of fcllow countrymen
and thua the work ia paaaed from
80ul to aoul and the good work
increaaed many fold. Aa wheu a
pebbledropped iutothe nighty ocean,
aenda the rippliug wavea onward and
ouward, ever broadening until it is
lost in infiuity, juat ao the teachiug
and work of even one missionary
extenda, and we cannot eaiiniate the
extent of the influence of a aingle
Uut wbut of the noble aruiy who
are engnged iu Ihi* great war of
Zion? The war wiih ain und eternal
death? In our own honie laud, ia
America alone, we have a migbty
army of tncii and women laboring
Zi-aloualy for Foreign Missious, aud
even thelittle childrea are a tower
of stiength, dropping the pennies io
the great bank of Ileaven for the
SOUI8 of the heatheu.
Our young people in the various
movemeutsof young people's work,
are not only becomiog workers tliem
selves, but are Bupporting foreign
missionaries, andmany are volunteers
for foreigu service.
The highways are open, the op
portunity is oura to take the world
for Christ, the outlook was never
brighter than today. The field is
ripe for liarvesting, the workruen
are ready. The iuvitation is ours,
"Cotne over Christians if there be
and help us ere we die." "The
Heathen is promised as an inheri
tauce aud the uttermost parts of the
earth." Thie promise God will
moat surely keep and perform.
Whatmoreremainsbut to presson to
Zion's war, so pray without ceasiug,
and iu all things givethauks to Him
who will give the victory.
Now with these facts placed before
us, beeides others which might be
tnentioned, we no longer have cause
to feel, as some contend, that our
:offcr8 are emptied for naugbt, or
jur labor used in vain, when we bave
juch evidence that more good is
being acoomplished in this direction
than ever before, owing doubtle88, to
the fact that greater efforts are being
used to this end, as each year glides
jwiftly away into the distant pust.
rhen let us take renewed courage,
ind pressforward in this noble work,
?end the precious message of Jesus
tcrosa the uiightydeep, and brighten
ip the darkened homes of our more
infortunatesisters, pointing them to
;he outstretched arms of a loviug
Savior, and when we are called to
:ry the realities of another world, we
ihall receive a crown of glory at the
latnls of our Father in Ueaven.

Once in a while an editor has to
'break out" upon a sort of critic in
duded in almost every newspnper's
:oii8tituency. CJenerally it is the
cind who thiuk they know what
mght to go into his paper better
han the editor himeelf,who make the
rouble. Recently the editor of the
i.'titnani (Conn.) Stamlard gave such
:ritica to "know their place," iu
vholesome fashion, as follows:?
"There are persons who are so
leeply interested in certain moral
ind reli^ious niovements that they
hink the newspaper should open ita
:olumns for articles of any length
md quantity; and because we will
lot print them, charge us with be
ng recreant to our principlea.
"Such people think they know
ust how a newspaper ought to be
riited, much better thou the editor,
md aa advisors, think we should not
egard our fiuancial interest in do
ng our work. A large claas of this
cind, we find, will not permit their
lames to be appended, for the reaaon
t8 they tell us, that they do not de
?ire to incur the ill-will of anyone?
>videutly unconcerned how much
aoatility and fiuancial loss fall on
"We print a paper to make a liv
ng, as raen carry on any businea8.
We desire to make it en iulluence
for good. We desire to be at peace
with all men as much aa is possible,
t8 suggested by the Apostle, who
cnew that with some men it was not
possible, do what one might to pleaae
them. Were it not for thecouimon
lenae aud fair-mindedness of the av
jrage person, and the manly forbear
mce of the more intelligent and in
luential class, making all allowance
for human frailiies, an editor's life
wronld be indeed a trying one."
WHY GROW HORNS.

their wiid state which reouired them
for weapona of self-defense no longer
nbtain, hence a smooth |>oll is pre

jf a polled bull, or by use of stick
3auatic potash applied to the embryo
horn when the calf is a few days old
by first wetting the button or young
horn and then rubbing with potash
until burned suliiciently to kill it?
that ie kill the horti, not the calf.?

CENSUS AM0N3 FARHERS.
A r.ullclin of Inatructiona Nearly
Ready for Cirrulatiou.
The Cenaua Bureau has prepared
a circular which it will diatribute
through all theagricultural districts
in the country. The docunient is a
part of the cducatioual scheme
adopted by the bureau for the pur
pose of making all farmera familiar
with the character of infonr.ation
the census enumerators will, under
the law, be entitled to receive. It
will read as follows:
"The first really valuable census of
agricnlture in the United Statea was
taken in 1850, of the crop8 of 1849.
Thenext enumeration of agriculture
will be taken in June. 1900, of the
product8 of 1899.
"Each farm will be accorded a
separate blank, the contentsof which
will not be known to any save sworn
officera of the departmeut No
uames will be published in connec
tion with information sccured from
"Tax aaseaaors, collectois, and
rqualizers oannot aerve as euumera
tors, or have access to the cenau8
returna, or to the information therein
"A'farrn* isall the land cultivated
or held for agricultural purpose8
under one managemeut, whether in
a eingle body or separate parcels.
"The enumerator will ask for the
aize and value of each farm, the
valne of buildings, aud the aggre
gate value of all machinery, itnple
meut8, vehicles, hamesses, etc, used
thereon; the color or race of the
occupant, and the ainount of land
owned and leaaed, respectively, by
"He will aleo aak for the acreage
and value of each crop, aud the
acreage of improved, unimprored,
and irrigated landa.
"The designation ?each crop'
includes all grains, cotton.corn, rice,
sugarcane, sugar beeta, sorghum,hay,
clover, wild grassea, gathered fornge,
flax, hemp, hops, peanuta, tobacco
6eeds, uut8, tropical fruits, small'
fruita, orchard fruits, nursery and
greenhouse stock, broom com, Irish
potatoes, sweet potatoea and yanis,
all vegetables, including the product
of all family, truck, and market
gardens, etc, also new or uuusual
crops, when fouud.
"The enumerator will ask for the
number and value of the live stock
on the farm Juue 1, 1900, which
will be reported uuder a number of
heads. such aa horses, colts, mules,
asses, cow8, heifers, steera, calves,
bulls, ewes, rams, 1amb3, swine.goats,
chickeiis, (including guinca fowl),
turkeye, geese, ducks, bees, etc
"The quuntity and value of milk,
cream, butter, cheese, raisins, prucea,
molasses, ayrup, 8ugar, egge, beeswax,
honey, wool, wine, cider, vinegar,
dried and evaporated fruita, foreat
products,poultry and meatproduct8,
and, generally, all articlea made at
home, or for the home, from farm
material8 during 1899 will be called
for by the enumeratora.
"If a per8on who removea from a
farm between the end of the crop
year 1899 and June 1, 1900, will
leaye a written record of the pro?
ducts and cropa of that farm for
1899 where it will reach the appro
priate enumerator, the 8tatistics of
hia operationa for that year will not
be loat. He will be required to give
the enumerator of the dietrict in
which he lives on June 1, 1900, the
acreage, value, buildinga, machinery,
implements, and live atock of the
farm he then occupiea.
"If every farmer will begin at once
to prepare a careful record of all
facta whieh the enumerator will be
instructed to record in June, 1900,
he will save time for himself and
the oflicer, and ensure more accurate
returns to the Government.
"The twentieth ceutury will begin
on January 1, 1901. Therefore, the
pending cenaua will afford to future
generations a meaaure of the streugth
and condition of the United Statea at
the threahold of the new hundred
year cycle. For that reason every
one ahould take an active intereat
in making it as nearly perfect aa
posaible. If each farmer will make
his owr* report perfect, the aggre
gated report for every commuuity,
and for the nation, will be perfect"
BAPTIST PREACHER ON HELL.
The Rev. Dr. Leu G. Broughton,
paator of the Baptist Tabernacle, of
Atlanta, Ga., receutly filled the pul
pit of the Kev. Dr. A. C. Dixon, of
Brooklyn, and alao preached in New
York churches. In his sermona he
warned his hearer8 to beware of the
burning hell of Cotlon Mather and
Jonathan Edwards. He waa criti
ci8ed as iguorant and superstitious.
He has now answered hi8 critics,
and reuftirmed hia faith in everlaat
ing future puniahment, particularly
for those who differ with him aa to
what hades ia hke.
"I warned my New York congre
gatioti8," he aaid, "to flee the tor
tures of hell. Many learned Eaatern
gentlemen expreaaed eurpriae that
aenaible New Yorker8 would flock to
hear such ignorance. One particu
larly yehement critic aaid that the
MfJ nligion was better than the old.
I have no doubt the new relipon is
more acceptable to luany Hi -w
Yorkeraand Bostouiati3 th;in the old.
"The suggeation that Itwfajaj l?a3
killed hell, may furnish comfortatdc
food foriulidelP, l*ni tai iatis, Fnivor
aalists aud 'higber critica,' but it is
enough to know that the majority of
those teaching along the line of
Kiblecriticiam niid uubeliefwill liud
their way to hell.
"I believe that Hanard Fniver
3ity, with her Unitarian, Fniveraaliat
and infidel propagandiam, will yet
know nud realize, ?in the dav of
Ilis wrath,' what hell is. The whole
Df that teaching, let it come from
a/hatever sourceit may, is hell bottnd.
"I believe it is true that the great
majority of our institutions of learn
ing in the North and Wcst are goiog
to hell at the rate of a mile a minute,
iweepingas they go preachers and
laymen by the thouaanda. The seat
)f the devil today is in the great in
ititutions of learning."
REVEL OF THE PLITOCRA1S.
Ilere is a pretty good effuaion from

Charles T. Yerkes, the Chicago
nilliouaire, says that the nian who
peculutes iu Wall Street will loae in
"I defy any broker," said Mr.
'erkes, "to ahow me any man who
laa dealt with him for two yeara or
iiore who haa come out with niouey.
have not looked at a atock list for
hirtoeii yeara. At that time, after
iiany a year's experience on the Stock
ixchange, I left it, ao thoroughly
iaguated that I never waut to enter
t again. I repeat, the man who
0*8 into Wall Street to make a for
uue ia an idiot, and he ought to
iave a guardian."
Such is the verdict of one of the
hrewdest finacciers of the age, yet
here are thousands of "idiots" who
?elieve that they can beat the game,
nd ao keep on playing it.

You may have heard
about SCOTT'S EMULSION
2 and have a vague notion
< [ that it is cod-livcr oil with ^
j [ its bad taste and smell and ] [
2 all its other repulsive fca- ]!
f tures. It Is cod-livcr oil, the
|> purest and the best in the
2 world, but made so palata
0 ble that almost everybody
\\ can take it. Nearly all
41 children like it and ask for
1 [ more.
0 looks like cream; it nour
j J ishes the wasted body of
< i the baby, child or adult
j j better than cream or any
Jj other food in existence. It
2 bears about the same rela*
< | tion to other emulsions that
1 > cream does to milk. If you
have had any expericncc
with other so-cailed "just ?s
good" preparations, you 1
will find that this is a fact. $
The hypophosphites that a.-:
combincd with the cod-!ivex oil
