CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR.
1 Young l'coplo's Weekly. J
Topic, August?: Lessons from tho
Life of Elijah.?1 Kings 20: 31).
Elijah is hy no means represented as
a perfect man. There were occasions
when his dejection reached such a point
that he prayed to de, aud almost accus?
ed God of be'ng unmindful of his faith?
fulness. Thero were times when he
seemed unduly severe. And jet the
nigged character of this s'ern old pro?
phet towers like a mountain peak above
the dead level of ordinary humanity
and there is no young Christian who
can afT.rd to ignore the Re-sons taugt|
by his life.
Ono of the traits in wbieh Elijah af?
fords a worthy example to us to-day is
bis courage Ho dared "io stand alone.*
He honestly believed that out of all Is?
rael he was the only ono left faithful to
God, but though ho might sometimes
wish to die, he never considered the ex?
pediency of serving Rani. Without
flinching he lookod tho king io. tho eyes,
and rebuked him for tlie calamity ho
bad brought upon Israel by forsaking
the commandment., of God. In tbat
wonderful gathering ut -.fount Carmel
ie stood fearless and solitm-y, with the
vavering Israelite! on one hand, and
he frenzied prophets ol Baal on the
ther.
Perliaps.th. ic is danger tbatjin oar em
ihasiring gcntleniss and meekness and
-ibearance, wc may fail to givo due
eight to eimple, i-tulwart courage,
ove, it is tme, i ? the one essential
ling, but the right sort of love isfear
ss. A iiiother-binl, the most timid
(Teated things, will boldly attack any
e which threatens it-, nestlings. Tho
ve of God in the heart begets a cour
e which is absolutely invincible,
lose young people who would rather
i wrong than to appear singular, whose
c standard of nction is tho opinion of
cir associates, fail pitifully in courage
catlee they nie lacking in love. Such
ll lind it v<rv helpful to carefully
idy the 1 fe of Elijah, the man who
?roughly believed that to bo on the
e of God was to be with tho majori
th
th
of
rei
en,

Lo

hoi
hm
ititi .vu it to Tin: test.
Elijah did not hesitate lo put (rod to
test when a crisis rmi ic. In other
ds lis faith was as sublime as bin
irage. He did not evade coming in
lirect conflict with the worshipers
[Jual. He gave them every chance
uove the justice of their claim, and
jeeted his own cause to a much se?
er tesl thau that to which he had
them. Under these circumstances
as not unr.n<-onable to ask Ihe peo
to nb de by the it-suits of the trial,
the Lord be God, follow him: but
iaal, then follow him." There was
one in the listening thiong who
ld not see the good sense aud fair
I of Lis proposition,
hristian young peop'e need have no
iu regard to pulling the faith they
to Ihe test. Christianity will stand
panson and bear inventigation. In
.1 there i* no'hing so robust and full
itality as tho truth. It is only er
whioh has to be guarded from light
air. Do not be discouraged if Ihe
ids jou ure trying to help s_how a
osition to inquiro into certain ques
s which hnvo never troubled you.
Iiey are sincere in their investiga
*, the light wiU break in upon them,
they will bc leady to listen to that
mable demand, "If tbe Lord bo
, follow him."

7ES, I know/' said Lottie Champney,
J "It is always ths easiest thing in
e worlel for girls in bexiks to earn
eir bread and build up a fortune out
nothing! But it is so different in
il life."
"But then, you know," pleaded Flor
ce, the eldest sister, "all true stories
i baned on real life."
'I'm not so sure about that," said
ttie. "However, here are you and I,
a heroines, so to speak. And nr ,v,
1 you hare tho goodness to tell me
v we're to keep out of the poor

'Embroidery and fine needle work,"
'-jested Florence, faintly.
The market for that sort of thing is
tted," said Lottie.
Miss Purdy keeps a boar-ding house.''
Exactly, but Miss Purdy is 50, and
ws every receipt in the cookery book
:ieart."
Couldn't we write for the papers ?"
irdod Floronce.
My dear child," snid Lottie, pitying
?for every newspaper column thsre
at loatit twenty trained and prtctic
spirants."
tVell, theo, perhaps you've some
ti practical idea of your owd," said
ence, still offended.
i'oh, I have. I was thinking of a

Charlotte Champney opened her

"1 don't vish to appear vein," said
she, demurely, "but Miss Purdy thinks
that handsome widower at her house is
decidedly taken with me."
"What, Col. Medway!"
"Yes, Col. Medway.''
Lottie Champney's heart gave a quick,
pained throb. "Was it possible," she
asked hers. If. "that she was selfish and
idiotio enough to be jealous, abd ot her
own pet sister, too?" Col. Medway
had never been more than ordinarily
civil to her; what was she, a poor, little
plain-faced soho?) teacher, that she
should dare to cast ber aspiring eyes
toward him.
Thus childing herself, she summoned
a sort of spasmotic smile to her lips.
"But you don't like children, dear;
and Miss Purdy says he hu a family."
"I'll send them to your school," said
Florence, saucily, "and get rid of 'em

"But, Florence, darling,'* pleaded
Lottie, "do you?do love him.
"Love?' echoed Florence, with a
gay toss of her flax gold hair;"that isn't

And she ciied a little, quietly to her

"Yes," said Florence Champney,
