es something stronger and holier than
mere money exchanges or meeting
places to vie with each other In
showy clothing and give Invitations

In Time of Perplexity.
Whit h way Is forward, is a question
which Is liable to occur to one under
certain circumstances In life, and yet
Is not always easily answered. A per
son walking In the forest or In a dense
fog. may easily mistake backward for
forward, and move in the direction of
the point whence he started, rather
than In the opposite direition. The
same difficulty often present ltelf In
the moral and spiritual life. There
may be times when it will be exceed
ingly difficult to say which way is for
ward. But we may be helped by re
membering that Ti arer to Christ is
always forward, and that the office
of the Spirit is to afford illumination
In Just such circumstance..
