There are men who supposing pro-. videncc lo have an implacable spile against; hem. bemoan in poverty to a wretched old age the misfortune of their liven,- Luck for ever ran against them and for others.

I never knew an early tising, hard working, prudent men, careful of his esrnlngs, and strictly hon- extt who complained of bad luck.

A ROUT LUCK. Democracy of the Bible. 1 The admiiable book of Bayne on "This Christian Life, Social and Individual,'" liss the following suggestive purngrapb in Hie chapter on "Hie bono I l'roblem ol the Age." "Christianity, avoiding anarchy on lheone4 hand and riespor.rin rn the older, sets tne race on a path of unlimited advancement, ll pionounces all men equal. In express terms, the Christian revelation declares all notions of the earth lo be of one blood, it pronounces all men equally the subjects of one King; il makes the value of a soul infinite, and shows no difference between the worth of that of s beggar and it at of a ptince. Look into the stable at Bethlehem, on that higlii when crown ed sage and bumble shepherd knelt by the cradle of (list babe who was their common King; do you not see, in that spectacle, llie loud of snessellisl equality uniting all ranks, and that making the regal purple and the peasants' riisret faint and (emporsiy distinc tions? Well -might Coleri!g6 say, that ihe fnirei-t flower he ever saw climbing rounds poor man's window, wss net to beaulilul in his eyes ss the Bible which he saw lying with in. If all classes, totsook (he gospel, one might expect the poor, the hard toiling, the despised, to cling to it. Whatever Christian ity may have become in our churches and in our limes, llie rrest class of the workers csn And tu Us aspects no excuse for abandoning itself, unless they csn show thai the churches hove rewritten the Bible; unless they can al lege tht it no longer exhibits the divine foiiu- uerof Chiisiianuoiiy preaching io the poor, compnnyiug with- publicans anil sinners; un less they can si ow that it was ihe ssnctmned usage of apostolic limes to honor ihe rich in the Christian assemblage; unless, in one word they can deny lhal the gospel holds forth to every man the prospect of being a king and priest to God."
