Quiet Talks With
The Family
By Charles Edward Jefferson, D. D.
Each member of the family comes in for
attention in this series of quiet, straight
from-the-shoulder talks. The message is
fresh, virile and modern. Its style is
intimate and friendly, and the book is
one of the sort that could be read aloud
with pleasure and profit in the family circle.

whom they are located. God, who
made man, and who understands thor
oughly all his needs, gave him the one
rest day in seven, not as a holiday,
hut as a holy day, and when we allow
it to be made a day of sports instead
of a day of rest in order to worship
and cultivate the spiritual life, we
dishonor God, and rob man of one of
God's most essential and most precious
gifts to him.
We would, therefore, most respect
fully but earnestly petition our Presi
dent and those associated with him
in authority, who, we rejoice to know,
are God-fearing, Christian men, to
use their influence and power to safe
guard, as far as possible, the Lord's
day, and preserve it from desecration,
and maintain it as a holy day of rest
and worship.
We also most earnestly call upon
our Christian people to stand more
earnestly and steadfastly than ever
for the faith once for all delivered
to the saints, and by their own con
duct and their influence and their
efforts, to do all in their power to
maintain the Christian Sabbath, and
thus obtain for themselves and for
our nation the blessing which .God
promises in His word to all who keep
this law. Read Isaiah 58:13, 14.
"If thou turn away thy foot from
the Sabbath, doing thy pleasure on
my holy day; and call the Sabbath a
delight, the holy of the Lord, honor
able; and shalt honor him, not doing
thine own ways, nor speaking thine
own words; then shalt thou delight
thyself in the Lord; and I wil' cause
thee to ride upon the high places of
the earth, and feed thee with the
heritage of Jacob thy father; for the
mouth of the Lord hath spoken it."
Egbert W. Smith.
A recent letter from one of our
missionaries in China closes with this
"God grant that our people may
not, during this awful war in Europe,
forget the war we are waging against
sin and Satan in this far country!"
While we are training our boys for
the Franco-Belgian front, let us re
member that far-flung battle line in
Asia, Africa and Latin America, which
for years has been suffering for want
of men and supplies.
On our lonely missionary outposts ?
amid the forests of Africa, on the hills
of Korea, by the rivers of China, many
of these heroes of the cross have
fallen. Well might a native Chr'stian
cry: "O winds that sweep over those
who have died for a cause they loved
moro than life, touch lightly, we beg,
the sacred duat. O sun, touch gently
with thy burning rays the lives of
those who still live and toil. Let
the story of their untiring energy and
unwavering faith and hope in Jesus
Christ be a perpetual inspiration to
the children of God."
While we remember our boys in
khaki, let us not forgot those other
soldiers of ours who in far distant
lands are holding the line for Christ.
