WPiDNESDAY, MARCH 28. 1883. Sunday School Lesson Notes. BY UKV. J. O. SHEIlllURN. Aprils: Philip aud tho Ethiopian-Acts :2-0. Tho gain coming from tho dispersion whioh followod Slophen's doitlh begins to nppcar already. Philip had been very successful in preaching and winning men among tho Samaritans. Now he has a special divine call for work in another ii Id. Wo havo no very particular acoount of tho me'.hod by which God directed him, save that the angel of the Lord spake to him. It is not said tint the angel appeared to him. but a natural supposition is that ho canio and spake with audible voice. The command might have appeared strange and even senseless to ono not schooled to walk by faith; but there is no hesitation on the part of Philip. A voice from tho Lord stilled every cavil with him. What made the command a still greater lest of faith and obedience was tho fact that only indefinite directions wore given. Ho was to go down tlin way which leads from Jerusalem to Uazi. But no indica tion is given as to tho purpose of his mission, or tho distance lie was to travel. Ho was simply to sot out upon this way and wait for events to teach him what tho design of his going was. But "he arose and went," and in this way of obedienoe God gave him a grand opportunity to lead a waiting soul to tho Lamb of Gol; and through the inlluonca of this ono conver sion bring many othors to know Christ. Tho man was at tho head of the treasury department under Candice, queen of Ethiopia. Tho English would term him master of the exchequer. It is not a little surprising to Cud this man a devout worshiper of tho true God, but it shows to what an extent tho Jews had become scattored even at that day, and also that they bad mado converts or proselytes to thoir national religion wherever they had gone. IIo had come some 1200 miles probab'y to atlond some of the great Jewish festivals. IIo was from the s:une region whoso quacn visited Jorusalom to loam tho wisdom of Solomon. Hero we soj a dovout inquiror nit !r tho truth. We shall lind in several rmtaneas in Acts accounts of just such men, and in no caso are th iy left without clear to idling concerning tin way of lifo. God shows an infinite interest in tho man who is honestly seeking the light. This Ethiopian was on his way home reading from tho 0!d Test tiuent scriptures. Pos Blbly ho had proaurcd a roll of parchment onlaining the Propho s, or some parts of oir Old Testament, on bis rocent visit to tho Holy City. It would bo a matter worthy of comiient to lind a minister of finance in any of the groat Christian nations of to-day loading God's word on his journeys. It would be also an exceed ingly hopeful sight, for no man, who reads devoutly and thoroughly that word, would be likely to prove treacherous to such high obligations. Here then in this officer of a distant realm was Philip's opportunity to preach Jesus. If this man bad been traveling a a drunken carouse Gol wo lid not have taken Philip from Sa-n aria to preach to liiiu. 11 it hire wis a soul needing aid, willing to ba aided, and tho divine economy makes extra provisions for just this class. Tho spirit, whioh ha I before spoken to Philip by an angel, now suggested to him, without sny mediate agency, that ha go near an 1 join himself to the chariot. That would naturally mean that he And a placo among the attendants who were abut the chariot of this officer. Now Philip begins to sae the meaning of his mission to his regioti. Tho treasur er is reading aloud, and Philip catches tho words as he pronounces them. A remark able coincidence, rather a wonderful man ifestation of divini foresight that just at the tinn Philip cimi up tho Ethiopian siould be reading the h'h, of Isaiah, and should b3 just at those verso3 which speak to direotly of Christ, and cannot be explained without him. Christ there set forth as tho patient sufferer, tho sacriflcal offering, the abuse! criminal, so called. "His judgment wis taken away," i.e., no fair trial was granted him, Cnrist the character vastly above all more human characters, "who shall declaro his genera tion?'' or find other characters with whom ho may be classed. These great prophetic pass iges furnished all the text that Philip .needed for the occasion. It may bo pvoaucaad that soma thing in the manner of tho in m or the tone of his reading indicated that ho was at a los3 to know tlio roil import of what ho read. Hence Philip mide bold to ask "understan lest thou what thou roadest?" At OU30 tha m in brings u; tho central idc i of tha pssago, and inquiros of whom Isaiah is writing and a3 tho prophet died a violent death he intimates that the language might refer to him . Now tho way is i omp'.ctely opened Philip could ask no better opportunity to preach Josus; and it would appear that ho used the opportun ity well; for in a little timo this prince of Africa was bowing his wholo soul to tho Princo of life, and professing without tho least hesitation, ' I believe that Josus Christ is tho S in of God." Having believe 1 ho was louly to act Tho inward m m boing onlightened, ho was anxious to keep all proper outward observances. Philip doubtless explained the moaning of baptism to him, nnd at tho first convenient place ho said eagerly "Seo huo is water, what dolh hinder mo to bo biptized?' So in an hour's time almost this man of rank and wealth put himself a nong the ii'.iubor of t io followors of Jesus. Philip's work being accomplished ha i miraculously removed from this onvcrt from a distand land, nnd is goon found preaching in tho towns far to tho northward of Palestine. Tho work goos forward rapidly and lie who was rejeotod by his own pooplo j received with gladness by multitudes of other races. TO V. V, DOTY On Ms WW IlirtMau. Hf W. II. CAltTKIl, M. J.

Dradf jrd- Vt., March 15, 1883. Vermont Conference Appointments. At tho Vermont annual conference of 1882, 1G8 pastoral charges or tho Metho dist Episcopal church were duly provided with preachers for the present conference year. As the year draws near its close and tho session of 1883 approaches, it becomes a matter of intorest to obsorve the present status of these appointments. Tho Burlington district comprises 35 pastoral appointments, including 8 preach ers who are closing tho third year of successive sorvico, 5 on their second year and 12 on their first year, together with 10 supplies by local preachers. The Montpelier district comprises 31 pastoral appointments, including 5 Ihreo year, 13 two year and 4 ono-year men, to gother with 8 supplies and 1 vaoanoy by transfer to another conference. Tho St. Albans district comprises 28 pastoral appointments, including 4 three year, 10 two-year and 7 ono-year men, to gether with 7 supplies. The St. Johnsbury district comprises 39 pastoral appointments, including 1 three year, 7 two-year and 17 one-year men, to gether with 9 supplies, 1 vacancy by disa bility and 1 vacancy by doath. The Springfiold district comprises 35 pastoral appointments, including 5 three year, 9 two-year and 12 ono-year men, to gether with 7 supplies, 1 vacancy by trans fer to another conference and 1 by disa bility. Tho summary shows 2(! npppointmnuls now occupied by three-year men, 11 by two-year men, 62 by ono-year men, 11 by local preacher supply and 5 vacancies; 2 by transfer, 2 by disability and 1 by death. The 2C three-year men having reached the limit f tho pastoral term must there fore rcmovo, Vermont Methodism not having yot adopted tho pious subterfuge of making a "mission" to circumvent the operation of disciplinary rule. The 6 vacancies must also be filled by the ap pointment of new men, thus placing before the cabinet, consisting of the presiding bishop with tho live prosMing ciders as his advisers, the foregone duty of making at least 31 appointmonts of new incum bents of the pastoral ollloo. Of the 96 ono and two-year men, it is probable that a fair proportion of changes will occur, but in the most of theio probablo changes there is an element of uncertainty, dependent upon tho develop ment of contingencies at tho conference session. Of tho 11 supplies, it is quite likoly that many will bo changed. There are also b presiding older appointments to be renewed, but nono ot the present incumbonts have reached tho limitation of time in such occupancy (4 years) and, so far as present information indicates, it is not likely that any chango of raon will occur in this department of Vermont Methodism. Tho 31 necessary changes, as above mentioned, will occur at Bennington, Benson, Burlington, Norlh Ferrisburgli, Pownal, Shelburne, Slarksboro.Vergcnnes, Cabot, Chelsea West Hill, Granville and Hancock, Moretown, Randolph, Rochester, Alburgb, Richford, Sheldon, Underbill, Albany, Danville, Eist Barnard, Lunen burgh, Lyndonville, Newbury, Newport, Landgrove. Perkinsville, Tunbridge, Wardsboro, Whito River Junction and Wilmington. The session of the conference, appointed at St. Alb:ms on April 18, will bo tho second session held in that town, and the thirty-ninth of the Vermont conference The former sossion in S:. Albans was in 1863, under tho presidency of Bishop Simpson, and tho remarkable fervor, eloquence and power of the bishop's ser mon on that occasion is now spoken of by those who hoard it as a neyor-to-bo-forgot-ten exhibition of pulpit oratory. Bishop Simpson also presided over th'S confer ence at Barton in 1859, at Montuelier in 1800, and nt Springfield in 1870. An Old Stoiim Theoiiv. A St. Johns bury correspondent of tho Journal relates an instance which happened in Vermont in 1837, in which a big storm was predic ed, and the ' theory on which the prognostications wero based." Jud"o Buokley resided, in Berlin, just across tho river from Montpelier. Ono member of the judge's family was n son named Frank, who was a half wilted fellow, and queer in many ways. In the stimnior of 1837 some friends from York State came to visit the judge and after a stop of a few days started on Saturday on their way home, intending to stop ovor Sundav with friends a few milos don tho river. "Frank heard thoir plans talked ovor nnd then said: "You had better not start; ihoro is going to bo a big storm that will carry all the bridges away, and you will havo to come back." The sky was cloudless the gentlemen laughed and drove on. In tho afternoon the storm began and nil that Frank had predicted csino truo. Ono ofthogontlc. men's curiosity was so excited that ho re turned alter tho storm to learn il possible how he knew thero was to bo such a storm. After much coaxing Frank prom ised if ho would coiuo out with him ho would tell, Going out a few rods from tho liouso so a view could bo had, Frank, in his drawling wny, said : "You seo that balsam lioo down in that swamp hole?" Tho mau said ho did. "Woll'' said Frank, "When you seo that old yaller cow stand lickinrr her tail rnnnil that balsam tree you may know there is kumg iu uc a topiici oi a storm." Do Lcssops is just now hard at work upon the plans for a canal across the isihmusof Malacca a stupendous work which will shorten tho voyage between Europe and the East fully four days. A Ixmdoner one day by aootdent saw tho sun. "Eavens." said ho, '"off they 'ave hlmproved that there 'icctrlc light." Afler a moment's pause, during which he gazed upon the novel sight, he added, n flectively "But 'ow in thunder (lid they get Mm hup so 'igh?" Some people find it difficult to deoide how much to give for good causes. The Hon. Wm. M. Evarts says a good rule lor giving is to select a person whose circumstances are about equal to your own, and when you have decided how much bo ought to give to benevolent cljccts, givo the same yourself. Baptist Weekly. For some years tbe following sentence has stood as the shortest sentence into which all the leltui'8 of the alphabet could be compressed : "J. Grays Pack with my box fivo dozen quills." The above sentence contains 33 letters A gentleman from Utica recently improved on it as follows, using only 32 letters: "Quick, glad zephyrs, waft my javelin box." Geo. W. Pierce, a Boston lawyer, has now forced 26 letters of tbe alphabet into a sentence of 31 letters, as below : X. Badger: Thy vizen jumps quick at fowl." Young Atheists. A suggestive sceno took place lately in a railroad car that was crossing the Rocky mountains. A quiet business man, who had been slowly watching the vast range of snow chid peaks seen for the first time, said to his companion : "No man, it seems to me, could look at that scene without feeling himself brought nearer to his Creator." A dapper lad of eighteen, who had been chiefly occupied in caressing his mous- lacue, pertly interrupted, "it you aro sure there is a Creator." "You aro on atheist?" said the stranger, turning to the lad. "I am an Agnostic," raising bis voice, "I am investigating the subject. I take nothing for granted. I see tho mountains, I smell the rose, I bear the wind ; there fore, I believe that mountains, rose, nnd wind exist But I cannot see, smell, or hoar God. Thereforo " A grizzled old cattle raiser opposite glanced over his spectacles at the boy, "Did you ever try to smell with your eyes?" ho said quietly. "No.'' "Or to hear with your tongue, or to taste with your ears?" "CertaiDly not." "Then why do you try to apprehond God witn faculties whioh are only meant for material things. P" "With what should I apprehend him?" said tho youth, with a conoeited giggle. "With your intellect and soul; but I beg your pardon 1" here be paused ; "some men haven't breadth and depth enough of intellect and of soul to do this. That Is probably the reason that you are nn Agnostic." Tho laugh in tho car effectually stopped the display of any moro atheism that day. ."it this is a question which cannot be laughoj or joked away. Every thinking man in bis youth must face for himself that terrible problem of life: "What is God?" and "What is he to me?" Asa younp; man denidns that qiwHlinn bia fnluro life takes shape Youth's Compan ion. Success. Every man must bide his time. Ho must wait. More particularly in lands like my native land, where the pulso of life beats with such feverish and impatient throbs, is the lesson needful. Our national charaoter wants the dignity of reposo. We seem to live in tho midst of a battle, there is such a din, such a hurrying to nnd fro. In the streets of a crowded city it is difficult to walk slowly. You feel tbe rushing of the ciowd and rush with it onward. In the press of our life it is difficult to be calm. In this stress of wind and tide, all professions seem to drag their anchors, and are swept out into tho main. Tha voices of tho present say "Come." But the voices of the past say "Wait! ' With calm and solemn footsteps the rising tide bears against tbe rushing torrent upstream, and pushes baok the hurrying waters. With no less calm and solemn footsteps, no less certainty, does a great mind bear rp against public opinion, and push back its hurrying stream. Therefore should every man wait bide his time. Not in listless idleness, not in useless pastime.not in querulous dejection, but in constant, steady, endeavors, always willing and fulfilling and accomplishing his task, that, when the occasion comes, he may be equal to the occasion . And if it never comes, what matters it? What mattors it in the world whether I, or you, or another man did such a deed, or wrote such a book, so bo it tho deed and book be well done? Ii is the part of an indiscroet and troublesome ambition to care much about fame, about what the world says of us ; to be always looking into tbe faces of others for approval ; to be always anxious for the effeot of what we do and say ; to be always shouting to hear tbe echo of our own voices. Ltngfeliow. Diseases Fhom Bad Teeth. It ap pears not to be generally understood even among cultivated pooplo, nevertheless, although the fact has been dwelt upon with emphasis by tbe best medical author ities, that the presence ot carious, crowded or asymctricaf teeth in the human mouth is the progenitor of a long train of ner vous diseases, comprising not only facial neuralgia and its committant troubles, but disease of the ear, inflammatory as well as functional, eventuating often in partial loss of hearing, defects of vision, naso pharyngeal catarrh, and other tormenting maladies. One of our acutest nnd most successful specialists in the treatment of nervous diseases Has become so fully con vinced, by long experience, of the part played by defective teeth in tho develop ment, not of neuralgia only, but even of tho more obscure neuroses, that he always insists, as a condition precedent to the acceptance of the case, that a thorough examination of tbe cavity of tbe mouth shall be undertaken by a competent den tist, for ho says, not only may a single diseased tooth result in persistent nervous disturbance, but diseases of the brain, decay or perversion of the mental faculties, even epilepsy and tetatnlo spasms often havo thoir starling point in dental irrita tions; and has observed oases in which, whilo leaving tbe foundation for a long truiu of nervous troubles, tho irritated organ itself gave no sign, cither by local pain or vague discomfort, of the agency it was constantly exorllng to produco serious disturbance at some distant point. In common with most aural surgeons, Dr. Soxton has long since adopted the practice of examining Hie teeth of every patient brought to him for trolmont of oar trouble, particularly of partial deafness and of general irritation of the organ; nnd, speaking tho other day of the large number of pupils from the publio schools who attended Iheauirl clinios at the hos pital with whioh be is connected, "It is rare," he said, "to find a single patient in whoso caso dental irritation is not to be considered among the prominent causative factors."

Through tho gloomy veil of mist, Came tbeskow flukes thickly falling, Hiding everything they kissed Every window-sill aud door-jlep, Aud the stoues beneath their feel, Till a pall of perfect whiteness Covered all tho silent street, Hoou the feet of busy people, Pass lug to their daily toll, Trod the whltoueas out aud marred It With tbe grimy stain of soli: Till the trapled mass presented But a Bad and painful Bight Painful lu its wretched contrast Witb the snow of yesternight.

LliTTKU TO A BlUDEGliOOSt. To become a husband is as serious a matter to a man as it is for a Woman to become a wife. Marriago is no child's play; it biings added care, trial, perplexity, vexation. and it requires a great deal of tho happi- iicoa vtuiuii iugiuujiueiy springs ouu oi it to make tho b.tlanco heavy in its favor. Very lew people live bantiilv in marrias-o. and yet this is not because unhappiness is gcrman to tne relation, out because those who enter il do not know, first, how to get married, and, second, bow to live married happily. You havo already mado your choice wisely, I am bound to believe. Those qualities of charaoter .which have attracted you tochooso as you have should make your love grow daily while you live together. As to tho second point: If you wish to livo in harmonious union with vour wife. start out with the avowed recognition of the fact that she is your companion and copartner. Marriago usually makes tho wife neither of these. In many instances she sees less of her husband than before she married him. Ho comes, he goes, be thinks, ho reads, works, and under tho stimulus of business brings all his powers and faculties to the surface, and is devel oped thereby not always symmetrically, but vigorously not always harmoniously, but witb increasing power. Married men do not usually shrivel Up hor put on a look of premature age, but women fre quently do, and it is plain to mo why they do. Married women aro shut up in houses, and thoir cheif oaro is for things that havo no inspiring influence Their time is taken up in meeting the physioal wants of their families cooking, washing dishes, keep ing the bouse in order, sewing, receiving company not ono of which has in it n tendency even to culture and elevation. Married wdmen are' devoted to the house, and this means a life of vexation and pettiness. It gives no sort of stimulus to the spirit. So the husband, who is out of doors, active, interested in meaMiiis which affect tho publio good, coming into contact with men greater than himself, who inspire him to belter purposes and nobler ends of labor, develops into m nly beauty nnd grows in character, whilo his wile t homo, who has as faithfully performed her share of the work, withers and decays prematurely. Treat your wife exactly as you would like to be treated if you had to live under her circumstances, and you will not go far wrong Do not enteriain tbe silly notion that because she is of a different gender from your own that she is therefore different in her wants, feelings, qunlities and powers. Do not be the victim of any social policy. Stand up bravely for the right, givo your wife a chance to live, grow nnd be somebody and become some thing. Try to bo thoughtful, considerate and forbearing. You will have new duties, and they will bring new trials. Take good care of your health and hers. Be simple, both, in your habits; be careful in your expenditures; be Industrious. If you keep good health and aro frugal, blessings will come from your united lovo, and you will grow happier and better as tbe years pass. Dr. James C. Jackson. General Woi-sbley on Ai.cohoi. Replying to a deputation of the Blackburn temperance mission at tbe residence of Major-General Fielden on the 18th instant, he said that he had always employed the opportunities afforded him to impress tbe necessity of temperance on those under his command. In the Red River expedition, against the advice even of tho'medical men wbo accompanied tho troops, he decided that no spirituous liquors sin uld be taken witb the force: and vol no men ever did harder work or behaved better than those on that expedition. In South Africa his personal body guard consisted almost exclusively of temoeranco mon: and there, too, the doctors, who had piedicted all manner ot ills from the absence of grog, had absolutely nothing to uo. in r.gypt, again, tue doctors told bim that it was very necessary the men should have grog, and ho was obliged, owing to the great pressure put on him. to allow il occasionally; but it was given in very small quantities and rarely and yet the troops in Egypt woro admirable in their behavior, tie nnd long bold that drink was tho groat sourco of crime, dosubodi- cnae, and other evils in the army.

One ovoninir a lady of Now York whilo on hor way home at a late hour without an escort, was approached by a lewd follow, as I ho boat on which thoy rodo neared the landing, who asked : Are you alone?" "No, sir," was tho reply, nnd without further interruption whon the boat touched she jumped off. "1 thought yon woro alone,'' said the fellow, stepping to her side again. "I am not." "Why, I don't seo any ono; who is with you?" "God Almighty nnd tho angels, sir; I am never alone !" This arrow pierced tho villain's hoirt, and with these parting words, "You keep too good company lor me, madam,'' he shot out ol sight, leaving tho heroic lady to enjoy hor good company.

An Ei.i riiANT's RiiVKNtiu One of those pesls of society "a practical joker" visited n caravan in a west of England fair, and tried his stupid Iriuks on nn elephant there. Ho first doled out to it, one by one, some gingerbread nuts; and when tho grateful nniin il was thrown off his guard, ho suddenly proffered it a large parcel wrapped in paper. The unsuspi cious eie it me accepted and swallowed the lump, but immediately began to show signs of intense suffering, and snatching up a buckit handed it to his keeper for water. This being given to it, il eagerly swallowed qii.intitii s of llie lluid. "11a!' cried the duiighted joker. "I guess those nuis were a tl'illo hot old fellow.1' "You had better be off," exclaimed the keopor. "unless you wish llie bucket at your head.' The fool took the hint just in time, for the enraged animal, having finished the sixth bucketful, hurled tho bucket nf.or i's tor mentor with such foico that, had lie lingered a moment lonser, his life might have been forfeited. The affair w is not, howevc r, yet concluded. Tho following year, llie show revisited the saino town; and the foolish joker, like men of his gon itis unable to pront by expennce, thiitijiht to repeat his stupid trick on tho elephant. IIo look two lots of nuts into llie show with him, sweet nuts in one pocket and hot In the other. Tho elephant had not forgotten the jest played upon him, and theieforo accepted the cakes vi-ry cautious ly.

Bimorest's Monthly. Good Wouds fob Oatmeal. The oat crop, wbieh is so prominent in our farm ing, is rarely utilized lor larmer s tables. In n somewhat long acquaintance in tho rural districts, wo do not remember ever to have met with oatmeal cooked in any form. I his diet is a favorite at the break fast table in our cities in tho form of mush and onteu with sugar and milk, is an appetizing and wholesome articlo of diet. But upon the farm tho oat crop is very largely a money crop, sold at the nearest ruaikol or railway station. If used upon tbe farm it goes to tho horse without grinding, or, if ground, as provender for the pigs. Almost everywhere wo meet with corn products upon tho table, linlian bread, the convenient johnny-cake, hasty pudding, samp, hominy, corn broad, and that finest of nil euinmer dishes, succotash the sweet torn mingled with the savory juices of the bean. Iho wheat pant is woll re) resonicil, iu bread nnd other foi ins of cooking, though it h i . ceased to be a product of many northern farms. In all the legion where ryo has taken the placo ot wheat, rye bread is a staple art cle of diet.

VEiisioNr'S Innovation Tho fact of the Boston merchants on the Vermont dairymen's association, is all interesting one from two or three points of view. The first, ns noted, is that producer and dealer were brought face to face. The business of those men is to invest their capital in dairy goods, and then take it out again at a profit to themselves and satisfaction to the consumers. They are, therefore, of necessity, competent to gauge the calls of the market and fitness of the goods offered to meet the demand. Any dairyman need ask for no belter judge of his products than the man who stands ready to put down the monoy, if the offerings p-eseuted will fill his bill. Tho judgment of ono such man is worth iBoru to a butter or cheese maker than four score expressions uf opinion of other persons Inasmuch ns llity liro interested in western creameries, their suggestions to Vermont men are most pertinent and equally applicable to all of New England. While they confined themselves in their remarks, to butter, yet some plain infer ences can bo drawn lo the benefit of our cheese making. It is interesting to note that neither of them i ndorsed the notion that the western creamery was the system for excellence, for us. Mr. Simpson expressly doubted whether eastern farm ers were ready to sustain them. His allusion to tho good cellars which we may havo, as contrasted witb tho west, is another crumb of eomfort for New England ; and yet wo must go beyond the mere cavity in tue eiirib, however it may be walled up and ooverod over, to get over tho full explanation of the possibility of keeping butter among us. It is the actual and esscDlial difference in the climate which explains tho whole thing. Our aveiago of temperature and mois lino, wilh the relative shortness of the warm season, makos it possible to handle butter more at one's option; nnd in cheese, thoso conditions cuablo us to tone up the make to a point of fineness nnd keeping quality unknown to the average western make. Both speakers were compelled to allude to the difficulties involved in getting milk delivered in the proper condition. It is a constant matter of surprise to lind how inattentive farmers will allow themselves to be on this point. In illo operations where the milk is all sold, these difficulties aro insurmountable, and, as the patron's interest ceases us soon as tho miik is taken, the maker and owner must protect himself alone as best ho can. When the method of work Is such that, whether it bo butter or cheese making, tho patron's interest remains until the proooeda ufe reHlffteri, then each man has a vital concern in the condition of every mess of milk received. For this same reason, it is certainly better for all parties, that Messis. Simpsou and Belknap and associates should not waste their money in our dairy products, until the work is all done, and the pi ice thoy will pay us will affect every man according to tho actual degree of quality. Under such an engagement, the patrons becomo a sort of mutual society which exerts the strongest possible pressure upon heedless ami criminally negligent milk men. Practically, it works better with us that the public should lind out the why and wherefore, to a certain extent at least. The associated interost is a public one, and let all the members know all the experiences incident to llie season's work. It is most certainly to be hoped that these gentlemen, or oth rs equally expe rienced, will give us, another season, as thorough and searching talk on cheese. I should be exeeedingly glad to welcome such men to my factory another fall, when the room is full of cheese. Francis Barnes, in the New England Farmer. " Thy neighbor ?

If religion is held to bo a delusion, how can discussion be held wilh those who deny its reality? Who would attempt to demonstrate a problem in Euclid to a war painted Sioux? Why endeavor to show the Spirit to ono who says there is no Spirit, or demonstrate God to one who says thero is no God? Ti e antagonistic altiludo ol a soul lo mat. wnicn is ciaimea, makes all demonstration impossible. Faith is not a demonstrative fact any more than immortality is. Belief in these is less a nia.tcr of pure reason than of intuition. If a man is deaf, why cry in his car? if blind, why hand him the picture of Calvary? It is time wasted, opportunity wasted, power wasted this attempt to logically demonstrate the awful truths revealed by the Spirit to human conscious ness under tho laws which dominate the spiritual realm truths based upon condi tions which are denied at tho outset by thoso who demand a sight of the invisible, and tho exact span of the measureless.

Whon our puritan forefathers trained their children carefully in a thorough knowledge of the Bible because it was tj them "llie Word of God,'' they were giving their children, unconsciously pcrohance, some of tho most precious elements of n liberal educa tion ; they were giving their children what they might have sought for in vain at Oxford or Cambridge an intimate acquaintance with tho highest thought of llio best minus tne worm nas yot Known. For. even taking tho Bible at iho lowest estimate at which it has yet been taken t is a literature ot the very liigtieit rank. Where shall wo lind sublimer poetry than In tho Psalms of Isaiah, or grander drama than in Job, sweeter pathos than in Ruth, and tho stories of the patriarchal age, or truer heroism Ihan in the record of Israel's sufferings? S our forefathers derived from tho Bible the truo culture which fills the mind with thoughts of sweetest savor, giving it standards oftastoand c induct whioh might bo staid and sombro indeed, but yet could brook no contact with things mean or ignoble or impure. And thus, while the tone of society at large could endure the ribaldies of a prurient novelist, tho Puritan could enjoy his Paradise Lost and Pilgrim's Progress, nnd lind in tliem a genuine lelaxation and rest. Tho youth of to-day, fresh from college, and his sister, finished at her establishment, able to run through all tho "Ologies," and chatter in half a dozen languages, are often far less cultured than the Scotch shepherd, whose only companion in his solitude is bis Bible; for his mind is stored with the brightest and purest images, his sympa thies enlarged and disciplined by contact with the records of humanity in its n blest aspeots. Indeed, tbe latter not seldom shows u delicacy of feeling, n tact and power of apprecia ing the sentiments of others, which are attributes of tbo true gentleman; while tho former, notwith standing their 'encyclopedic information, will often betray a lack of interest in the highest elements of human life n want of sympathy for all which surpasses their own narrow selves, that is compatible only wilh the most vulgar typo of mind. Selected. Advanci.no. We need m ore positive ness. We need the habit of standing by the things tha1 are settled. To that end each man needs lo havo some Ihings settled for himself. Then, when they are settled, he must cling to them, and not lo things which nro still in question or in doubt. The trend of modern thought and dis cussion demands attention to this mailer. The fashion of thought lately seems to bo to regard that man the most "advanced" thinker who has thought out tho very least. Men's abilities haye boen measured, not by what they know, but by whir, they do not know; not by what they believe but by what they doubt. A speaker who harangues of tho difficulties which exist in matter and in mind will attract attention and elicit applause, while a teacher wbo instructs hs in what is not difficult to comprehend, but which is of inestimable value In practioal life, is rogardod as dull and unadvanced. This cant of "advanced" thinkers is leading multitudes into boas, into impene trable forests, into pitfalls. Mon must "advance!'" that is the cry. But why? What is the use of always advanoing? May it not be woll occasionally to stand still? Certainly, unless you know whnt ground you are going to troad, you would better not move forward. Occasionally advancing men have fallen Into wells and other disagreeables. By nil means let us advance along ground which has been ascertained to be solid, and let us advance by methods which shall secure safety with progress. It some things be regarded as settled. Surely if the human race has been exer cising its reason through so many ages, somoihing must bo settled if reason be worth anything to man. There may be subjects which mon will question in some places which no man of honor will question in another. In all Christian and Jewish households, pulpits and publications, suroly these Ihings ought to bo considered scttlod forovor, not to be reopened or discussed, namoly : that there is a God and Savior, and that the Bible is tho word of God, the rulo of faith and practice, and that man s moral nature is developed and purioea oy obediencu to the word of God. Tho chil dren in such households should no more discuss any ono of those mattors than they should discuss tho chastitv of thoir moth ers. The man who in tho presence of members of such households treats any ono of these subjects ns not yot Fottlod If he is not a fool destitute or nit knowicugo of what constitutes honor is a base seduoor. Within thcso bounds ho who advances makes progress on secure ground; bm ho who advances beyond these bounds fulls over a precipice. I'liarlcs F. Deems, P. I). rcmjcrancf. 'llie Vl-ion Fulfilled.
