John r.urrouKl.i contributes to Tht Popu
lar Science Monthly for December, under the
title of 'Science and Theology," a review of
Professor Iiruminond'a "Natural Law in the
Spiritual World," and a sharp critiitm of the
position taking by the author. Mr. l!ur
roughs docs not contest the theological sound
liens ot Prof. Dutntnond's yiews, nor the val.
i lity of theology within its own sphere, but
denieB that it i subject to scientific demon
stration. Dr. Felix L. Oswald in "Zoological
Superstitions" controverts a number of tra
ditioual beliefs that prevail about monkeys,
parrots, serpent-charming, bats, joint snakes,
and gluttons. In "Energy of riant-Cells,"
professor T. H. McDride relates some inci
dents illustrating the great power of pressure
md expansion developed by growing plants.
I'rofessor J. P. Cooke describes "The New
Requisitions for Admission to Harvard Col
lege." wbich are much broader and more
liberal than the old ones. In "How to warm
our Houses," Mr. E. V. Robbing objects to
stove and furnace heating and gleam heating,
and all devices for warming the air, as un
natural and unhealthful, and make a plea for
directjadialiou as from fireplacts bo as to
warm objects and leave the air In its natural
condition. Among the other articles are
"The Higher Education of Women," "Life in
the South Sea Islands," "The Wings of
Iiirds," "Measuring the Earth's Surface,''
(to., making a very valuable number indeed.
The editorial "Significance of Wiggins"
Bays a great deal in a very little space:
Once more Wiggins has been put to shame,
or put to what any other man would regard
as Bhume; what guaranteo have we that ho
will not, aficr the iHpso of a few months, don
his prophet io robes again and fill the land
with the noise or Ins looiisu Darjimngsr
None: the probability is that we have not
heard tho last of Mr. Wiggins by a great,
dual. U will show a moderation on bis pan
on which we have no reason to count, if he
withdraws altogether from the notice of a
public that is abundantly willing to forget
his past blunders, on the sole condition of
his propounding new terrors in complete
disregard of all the principles of science.
What we see and lament to see in this
whole business is, the eviduuee afforded of
the very slight extent to which true scientillo
knowledge hn.s as yet permeated the public
mind. Large portions of our population are
at the mercy of charlatans of every profession
and of every ty po. Some of theso prey upon
their pockets, somo upon their health, some
upon their emotions. There is knowledge in
the world that might to be tho heritage of
all, but that really is confined to a few. The
masses have no means of distinguishing be
tween the mini who speaks in the name of
acquired und iirgiiuitcd science and the man
who uses u scientific terminology, tlmt he
himself only half understands, for the pur
pose of getting himself falked about.
It seem trite lo say thai what is wauled
is the more geuerul ditl'usion of sound fcien
tifio knowledge; ami yet, with the vunt ngeii
cies that are now being employed in popular
cducution, it should not tie impossible, one
would think, to do something to guard the
community at large against ridiculous and
hurtful delusions such as those which "Pro
fessor" Wiggins, with the aid of the pre,
has been instrumental in creating. Me do
not see why, in our public schools, some ef
fective instruction might not be given in the
spirit and methods of science.
It is hard to know where to begin in dis
cussing the beauties of the Chrismag num
ber of liirjtr'i ilajazint. It is like the
long stutl'ed stockings of our childhood,
which used to be full of all sorts of uuimag.
inable good things. There is an atmosphere
about this whole number that breathes the
fragrance of a bounteous Christmas; like a
Louse that Is filled with sweet-smelling hem
locks and greens hung about its walls.
There is, in the first place, "The Doyhoodof
Christ," a short sketch by Gen. Lew Wal
lace, adorned with gome exquisite sketches :
and then we have a most charming short
Btory, "Polly: A Christraaa Recollection,"
by that very charming writer Thomas Nel
on rage, Mr. Howell's new farce, 'A
Mouse Trap," is none the less delightful for
not being a Christina story, and no matter
what the season might be In which Mr. Ab
bey's illustratioas of "Sally in Our Alley
appeared, they would be a eource of delight.
All the regular serials have been omitted
from thU number to make room for six
short storieg, among which we notice one
from a new write, Harriet Lewig Bradley.
Sarah Orne Jowett and B. L. Parjeon write
two of the others, and Mr. R.H.Stoddard
contribute a long poem, "The Legend of
Fttj Bernardo," with illutrtioi . From
the "Editor'a Easy t.natr" we nave a np-
Christmas greeting, and a few kindly and
timely remarkg on American politeness. As
a pleasant ending there is a picture by Coo

exact meaning of the word "honeymoon."
To bo ctymologically correct, a bride and
groom ought to extend their honeymoon, or
trial trip, to four weeks, the exact period of
a lunar month, a custom, 1 believe, that is
more honored in the breach than the observ
anco. The honey part of the word comes
from au old German habit of drinking meth

the wedding, with a view to promote sweet,
ness or sickness, I suppose. There are Bub.

DR. JOHN HALL'S NOTES ON THE
SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON.
I,eaon IX of tlie International Serlea for
Sunday, Nov. 2S ;oldun Text, ' I am
Ho that I.I ve til, uml waa Ileud" ltev.
I, 18 Leaaou Text, ltev. 1, 4-18.
No moro Important losson thnn this has
Urn studiml, und tho dilliculty will bo to
bring into tl.o flxod limits oven u brief notice
of tho many y;rout truths hero bandied. Tho
teacher will explain at the outset that tho
wholo bonk if a lottor, and whilo tho 'Seven
churchos" uro formully uddruKMnl, tlrj entiro
Ixiok is au epistlo to tho wholo church
throughout tho world.
A second thing tho teacher will bear in
mind, namely, that tho bold imagery of the
book and this losxon hug much of it is to
lj traced to foregoing scripture. The Old
Testament Is tl.eroforo tho standard by which
wenruto ititorprot many of tho symbols of
tho book. Indoed, it profccntmind completes tho
unity of Revelation; forwhilo man U-ius in
Punull.K.., from which bis sin drives him, he is
guru in tho end of Revelation uj,'ain in Eden,
ami holding con verso with Ood without
temptation and without An.
Our lesson naturally divides it.sclf into tho
introduction, the di-Kcriptinn of Jesus and tho
iwssaL'o he sends: but for tho ihii-ihiso of tho
cl;t-s, it will probably bo better Ut take it up
verso by verso.
V. 4. John, tho friend of Jesus, tho lifo
lonu preacher, tho writer of tho pispel, tho
giiffeivr for tho truth, thn ngisl disciple, is
well lilted to receive ami deliver tho mes
sage of tho Church's Head. Tho "seven
churches" in Asia represent, whilo they uro
ono by one, no doubt, truly doscrilieil, tho
conditions of tho wholo Church in ull time.
Asia sometimes called Proconsular Asia
includes only a small pin t of tho continent
uiw so dcscrilMsl. It is tho Asia referred to
in I l'eter i, 1; Acta ii, D; vi, 0. "(iraco and
M-acu"aro in tho usual New Testament bless
ing. ".Mercy" is inserted in tho Kpistles to
Timothy. Tho description from him "which
is," etc., can only apply to Uod tho Father,
the "1 Am," who is "from everlasting to ever
lasting." Sco Ood's description of himself
to Isaiah, Isa. xli, 4; xliv, 0. The "seven
spirits" cannot lie angels or creatures
of any sort, or they would not bo placed lie
twoen tl.o Father and tho Son in this ac
count. Tho lamp of tho taliernnclo, the sa
cred and 'i fcct number seven, found in tho
sumo connuction in Zoch. iv, '2, !, und tho
fact that tho gift of tho Spirit ore sevenfold
in Ls xi, 2, explain this languugo. Tho jier
fect, sevenfold work of the one divino Per
son wo have brought before us. It is tho
idea of I Cor. xii, 4, "diversities of gifts, but
tho same Spirit." This Spirit is given through
Christ; henco Hov. iil, J ; iv, 5, and v, 0.
V. 5. Jesus is tho faithful witness to God's
character and law, concerning nil eternal
things, from Ood to men. Josas himself often
employed tho word "witness." Ho is tho "lirst
bogotton from tho (load"; for though there
were resurrections liefore his (Lazuru.s, e. g.),
they woro only tonijiorary, and tho htst
enemy camo again. But Jesus "dieth no
more," and his rising is tho ground of all
other triumphant resurrections He is "prince
of tho kings of tho earth"; as he said, "ull
rawer is given," etc., Matt xxviii, 18. (Ps. ii,
2; cx, 5.) Then conies the doxology, in which
Christ's great work is owned, running on into
v. 0. Mark tho order love, washing, mak
ing kings and priests, etc. We nro to give
this glory to Jesus now and forever. We
are all believers now, kings and priests
unto Ood. (l'eter ii, 0.)
V. 7. Christ camo once in lowliness. He
will como ngnin in glory, "with clouds" of
awA-inspiriug darkness, Tho ldou Is of terror
to his enemies, as wo soe by tho next words,
"they which pierced him" "wuil," etc. To
the saints his coming Is joyful; it is ter
rible to unpardoned sinners. Head care
fully l's. lxlvii, 2, from which perhaiw thia
idea comes. But John and ull believers re
joice in his coming and in all ho does. So
"Even so, Amen."
V. 8. Tho divino Being describes himself at
greater length, as In v. 4, taking the first and
lut letters of the Greek alphuhct, nlpha and
omoga "the beginning und the ending" to
represent his eternity, and rotating tho lun
guugo of v. 4, adding "tho Almighty." Of
this supremo cuu.se of all, Jesus is tho repro
sontativo; nnd while men reject him now,
and In so doing reject the Almighty, when ho
comes again it will bo tc assert and vindicate
divino right, und big enemies will quail be
fore him. (Soe Zoch. xii, 10.)
V. V. John now describes himself in lan
guage which could apply to no other John
than tho niostlo. "Brother" bow be puts
himself otiu level with the ordinary believers!
All were there suffering for tho truth, hence
"companion in tribulation;" but ull had joy
nnd strength in tho kingdom mid patience of
Jesus. Ho was an exilo in I'litmns, u rocky
isle in tho .Kenii sea. The government of
Domitian was trying to put down Christian
ity. Tho cuuso of his banishment was for
"the word of God" and the witness ho wus
bearing to Jivus. They could place 1 ii ill on
the bare, bleak rocks, but they could not rob
him of his joy.
V. 10. The "Lord's day" lir.it occurs hero
ns a phrase, mid soon came into general use.
It is a good description f the "first day of
the week," the day of his rising. lie was "in
the Spirit" not merely ns nil God's M-oplo
nro "in the Spirit" (Gal. v, Pi, but spec
ially taught, bellied and comforted. When
Cod's jieoplo suffer for him, ho gives them
blessed conniem at ion. Notice the significance
of the description tho Lord's day, bouse,
supM'r, icople, licrviee. For tho voice, as of
"a trumpet," ho Num. x, 2; l's. nviii, :i:i.
V. 11 gives instructions to write tlio com
munications now to bo mude to him and scud
theni to tho seven churches named. There
were doubt less many more than these, but
probably these are chosen to represent to tho
future the dangers, duties, encouragement
and liojies to lsj kept in mind by all Ood's
people in their various conditions. The his
tory of tho church shows the need of such
revelation We do not tuks tho commission
to includo only tho epistles to each, but the
whole revelation to tho ehd,
V. 12. Tho speukor is seen among "seven
golden cnndlesttcks," tho description ns in
tho Septuagint of Ex. xxt.SI (Heb. ix, 2), re
produced in Zech. iv, 3
(V. 13), nnd representing tho churches,
ninny in number, dciendnt for the light
they give out on him who is in the midst. A
candlestick by itself gives no light. It holds
up tl.o light Failing in this it is useless.
(See Eph. r, 11.) Tho prtciousncss of the
church is represented by the "golden," as in
v. 13, Hev. iv, 4, xxi, 21. Gold is rarest and
int valuable of all the metals.
John knew "tho son of man," henco "like
unto," though bU "garment down to the
foot," representing rank, and his "golden
Kiidlo" showed more dignity (Gen. xxxvii, 3),
and differed from hi apiiearaiix) in bis
humiliation. It is meant to show his glory.
(Seo Dan. x, 5; Isa. vi, I.) Men toiling were
girt about the loins, but dignified pernor
wero Rlrt alKmt tneirenst (N Iter, xr, a
Comoro also Isa. xl, & and F.plu vl, 11.)
V. 14. The "white hair" of this verse cor
responds to th "wool" of Dan. yil, 0, and
reprewmU not age, but dignity. The eyea
nro oa in Dan. x, 0. They ienetrute ana con
sumo. (Seo Ilov. xlx, 11, l'.)
V. l"i. No covering is mentioned for the
feet There is no dellleme.it In thn streets of
heaven. The idea is hhining, glittering. (Sea
lUiv. x, 1.) Tho "sound of many wuters" in
from Lzek. i, '24. The idea Ls of awe-inspiring
sound, not joyful.
V. 10. As a wreath held in his hand were
tbo "seven stars," and tho sword, sharp and
two-edged, Is in allusion to such uissuges as
II Sum. XTiii, 8; Isa. I, W; and in Isa. x.ix, it
wa see tho basis of tho symliol. Soma of the
fathers found tho Old and New Tttunicntg
In tho "two-odgod." Moro likely it is the
piercing sharpness thut is meant. (Soe Iicb,
V. 17. "Ilis countenance" suggenU tho angel
In Mutt, xxviii, 3. (See. Hev. x, 1.) It is clour
that it was never meant that tho painter or
sculptor should represent tlio apjicnrunce of
Jesus. It is not a figure; to strike tho senses
thut is presented, but one to impress and
teach tho soul. Bo John felt tho impression
(V, 17), and "fell at his feet as dead" (Seo
for parallels Ex. iil, 0; I Chron. xxi, 20; Isa,
vl, 0; Dan. viii, 17; Acts x, 4.) It is an in
voluntary act, not willing worship. There is
comfort for him, however, in -tho kindly
"right hand" luid on him, nnd tho words "fear
not," us in Isa. vi, 7, iu Dun. x, 1J und in
Matt, xvii, 7 to tho three disciples, of whom
John was one. His touch revives. Tho
cluim "I am tho first and the lust" could only
lie tho language of a divino being. (Scel.su.
xli, 4. xlviii, li)
V, 1. The knowledge of Jesus dying and
rising again, and having power over tho un
seen world und over deuth, w-us tho solid
comfort to John, us it is to ali God's people
to this day And forever. (Seo I Tim. vi, 1(3.
Tho length to which tho explanation has
necessarily gono prevents any full statement
of points to lie dwelt upon. Tlio following,
however, uro indicated: Tho need of know
ing all scripture; tho completeness of tho
Itil.lo; tho responsibility and dignity of the
Church; the glory of Jesus Christ, her King;
tho terrible guilt and conseipiences of reject
ing him, and the certainty und glory of big
coming again. Sunday School World.
