A period when the first work, so auspiciously begun at Pente cost, begins to broaden and Rive sure prophecy of marvelous conquests. A period when ths exclusiveness of the Jewish church and people 13 being rudely :osllcd and seems ready to fall before the power of Christ. During the time covered by these lessons tho gospel comes in contact with many races and conditions of men. Astounding miracles attest the divinity of tho system. The new and strange teachings that it brings prove a joy to thousands, while they are only as an idle tale to many others, and to a still larger class they only stir op envy, anger, and the maddest opposition. In these iessons we have account of the different position that various individuals took when brought In contact with the truth as it is in Jesus. Some, as Simeon, looked upon the wonderful empowering of the Holy Ghost only as a means of getting gttin, and fame, and power. The Ethio pian saw in it what his soul craved and gladly embraced its teachings, and set at once about the duties it required, Saul, though a bitter persecutor of Christians, is yet overcome and his opposition broken down when he meets with Christ himself. Peter is brought, by an experience whose teachings could not be mistaken, to embrace in his faith and endeavor the World of mankind. He does hot allow his intense prejudice to stand before the plain will of God. Under tbe guidance of tbe Holy Spirit Barnabas seeks an associate for bis mission work, and becomes happily associated with the bold and devoted convert from Tarsus. We find the two under tbe authority of their brethren, and by special diVme prompting, soon setting out on an extensive missionary tour; thus carrying the light of tho gospel to the remote nations of tho then known world. This period is one of marked enlargement in tbe infant church. Let us seek to recall some of the practical lessons in the work we have passed over. Lesson I. We can never enter into the real experience of divine grace until our hearts are right in the sight of God. That is, we must come to him not for self-aggrandizement, but that we may be fitted to glorify God and do his work. We are no longer our own, but bought With a price . Louun II. God provides the light of truth to all who devoutly seek it. Having come to the light, we are to begin at once the duties of the Christian life. Lesson III. The only kind of a religious lite that is worthy of the name, or worthy of an energetic man Is a life service to God. "Lord what wilt thou have me to do?" is a central question in a Christian life. Lesson IV. Sound conversion Is follow ed by Immediate work in God's cause and if a man in the full maturity of his powers gives himself to God he ought to bo able immediately to give powerful witness for Jesus. Lesson V. God does not fail to attest the genuineness of the work honestly done for him. Signs are sure to follow wherever such labors are performed. Such miracles as Peter was able to per form are not most needed now, but God yet stretches out bis hand to aid all who exercise real faith In him. The power which rescues a drunkard from years of degradation, or the libertine from his debauchery is no less wondeiful than that which raised Eneas from his bed where the palsy bad held him eight years. Lesson VI. If we saw more clearly what God is doing among other people we should not be so narrow in our notions, or so circumscribed in onr efforts. When Peter found that God had eves commissioned an angel to instruct the Roman Cornelius, ho was ready to fall in with the divino plan and preach to a heathen congregation gathored at the house of this devout officer. Lesson VII. Where God endorses a work by special aid In reaching men, there ought the church to send the largest working force at her disposal. Tbe peo ple of Antioob appear to have heard the word gladly and It was the highest wis dom to put the best working force In that place and keep them there for a consider able time. r , . . mnmie Having been belpod twice to overvining on tbe table, slid down, whon the coffee came in, from her cbair, with a sigh. "There, now," said her mamma, "I suppose you feel uncomfortable." "Don't," robliod Mamie, quickly, witli a tbss of her little head. "I on'y just feel nico and smooth."

Mortal a ceutury later. The first mention of it is The Peace of Death. How peaceful is the dwelling plaoe of those who inhabit the greon hamlots and populous cities of tne dead! iney need no antidote for care no armor against fito. No morning sun sbincs in at the closed windows and awakens them, .nor shall, until tho last great day. At most, a straggling sun beam creeps in through tho crumbling wall of an old, noglected tomb a strange visitor that stays not long. And there they all sleep, the holy ones, with their arms crossed upon their breasts, or lying motionless by their sides not carved in marble by the hand of man, but formed in dust by the hand of God. God's peace be with them! No ono comes to them now, to hold them by tho hand, and with delicate fingers to smooth their hair. They need no more the blandishments of earthly lrlcndsbips. They need us not, however much we may need them. And yet they silently await our coming. Beautiful is that season of life when we can say in the language of Scripture, "Thou hast the dew of thy youth." But of these flowers death gathers many. He places them upon bis bosom, and ho is transformed into somolhing less terrific than before. We learn to gaze and shud der not; for he carries in his arms the sweet blossoms of earthly hope. We auau see tnem an again, oiooming in a happier land. Yes, death brings us again our friends. They are waiting for us, and we shall not lone delay.

God has set a stronger guard over bis servants than ever Roman officers or soldiers could furnish. Lesson XI. Those easily led to believe in the preacher of the word often turn soon against both the word and its preach er. They who believe in Christ and get bis spirit are steadfast, At the late meeting of the Michigan general association of Congregational churches a dapper .young student asked Dr. L. Q. Cobb, secretary of the Congre gational union, "Will they allow a man out west to wear a silk hat?" "Yes, sir," aid tbe doctor, "but they want to know what he's got under it." A woman's ministerial conference was held at Boston last Friday, Mil. Julia Ward Howe presiding. Lorenza Haynet, Kate Gannett Wells, Annie Shaw, etc, were present. Letters were read from Mrs. Pholie A. Hanafbrd and Frances Power Cobb. Tbe general opinion seemed to be that women wore as divinely called to tbe work as men, had special qualifica tions for certain kinds of work, bad demonstrated their right by their success, and should continue despite all opposition. tice we can fulfill all Ibis with Ihe following simple manipulations : Undress tbe child and bring it to bed at tbe very first sign of sickness. Give it, if it has already fever, nothing but sourisb, warm lemonade with some gum arabic in it. Then cover its abdomen with somo dry flannel. Take a well folded bed sheet and put it in boiling hot water; wring it out dry by means of dry towels, and put this over the flannel on the child's abdomen. Then cover the whole, and wait. The hot cloths will, perhaps, require repeated heat. According to the severity of the case, and its stage of progress, perspira tion win commence in tne cniid in from ten minutes to two hours. The child is then saved ; it soon falls to sleep. Soon after the child awakes. It shows slight symptoms of returning inclination Tor food ; help its bowels, if necessary, with injections of oil, soap and water, and its recovery will be as steady as the growth of a greenhouse plant, if well treated. Of course, if the child was already dying, nothing could save it, or if it has already effusions in the lining of the heart or brain; it Is mncb better that it should die. But if tho above is applied in due timo, under tbe eyes and dircotion of a compe tent physician, I will guarantee that not one in a hundred children will ever die of scarlet fever. I know this will Btartlc some of my readers, especially those who have lost children already, but I shall go still farther. I maintain that a child will never get scarlet fever if properly treated. If a child has correctly mixed blood, it will not catch the disorder if put in bed with a sick child. This is still more startling, but nothing is easier of proof. uooa tieaim. woman, my dear, can do just so much that it was used in the repair of somo of . T . .It . I j 1 Win IV., tn.
