GOOD SAMARITANS. Wonderful the Iufluence Moody's Elo quent Pleading Arouset "When my soul a saved," hum med the crippled urchin on the wet sidewalk as he proffered papers to the passers bp. 'When my soul is saved," mur mured incoherently, the beggar woman seated upon the stone steps soliciting alms. "When my soul is saved," sang the doorman, in undertones, as he swung wide toe portals 01 Carnegie hall. And so "When my soul is saved" be came the whiepureu refrain of the sing ing .multitudes tha. went yoste-diy afternoon to listen to Evangelist D wight Moody. A multitude of men two thousand, to hlf as maay women. Thin of this, fashionable minis t3rs, who preach to adoring congregations of skirted an J bonnetted beings! Men are Mood -ma 1. What kinu of me i? Vagabonds, La liters, patriarchs, prodigal sons, ex-Siug cing convicts and Bawery nabiiues, taca and all giv ing i apt attention. "Compassiou" was the Evangelist's theme. He illustrated the divine at tribute by the parable of the Good Samaritan in the orchestra chairs sat th3 ticket holders. Among them came a cleanly shaven, dark-eyed fellow, ciosely followed by a ritgged ruffian. luo cleanly 6haven man had been present at tne morning service. He had requested Mr. Moody to pray for Mrs. Bailiugtou Bootn. He confessed to being au ex-convict. btio hau compassion. Ub had become a good Samaritan. Wun the sung service ceased the galleries began to till- Tne Wail street banner, with trou sers creased and hands well gloved, stood along-biue the dusky darky, whose fervent "Amens" ecnoed throughout the building. A g' aj-uaired man, bent with sor row and age, came late. A bonny lad cluLcbed ma hand tightly as the ushers made way for them in the iront row of the upp.r gaiiery. Mr. Moody was telling tue oft-repeated story of the ' prodigal ron. Then it was that the child became a good Samaritan, strok ing the old man's hand as his body hook witn aaguisn. Memors played havoc with emotions unuer the subtle influence of t-io ex porter. A negrees, swayed by the fervor of religious enthusiasm, touched the hearts of many. She knew not the words of tne song, but carried the air, at-d those in her immediate neighbor hood aid likewise. And of the women there were many tjpes. She of the suburbs, in a neat velvet hornet pillar in the church p.Ooperous but dowoy, wears ihrist tin Endeavor badge, takes salvation severely. The embryonic Sunday school teach er carrie- a note book, wants to learn methoi, masters religion method ic. iy. A bright-eyed girl, parting her hair In the middle, wears the insignia of the King's Daughters, takes it seriously- The girl in the picture hat is an emo tion '1 miss, embraces religion ecstati cally, and with the vast majority, comes to s. e what a revival is like. See goes home, as do the otners, to remem ber. "The cursed waves of iniquity which flow through our streets would go back if we had compas-i"n. 'Compassion will kill anarchy. Try It and see. "The spirit of tbe Good Samaritan is abroad in the Greater New York. "Tenderness and compassion are the surest plans for salvation. " As the cboir chants "Saved by Grace" the doorman sings "Saved by Graci," thi beggar woman .murmurs Saved by Grace" and the cripple ur chin hums "Saved by Grace." N. Y. Journal. Arnold in "The Pearls of Faitb," te la us the story of four men who agreed to put tteir pittance together to purchase a meal, but fell to disputing as to what the repast should be.

Character of the Men of the Hebrew Priesthood According to the last census returns there are 533 Jewi-h congregations in the United States. Of these, 301 wor ship in church edifices especially bui't and arranged for the purpose, and 232 in balls and rooms. It may safely be asBUim d that the greater number of those occupying church edifices employ a salaried minister; and it may with equal safe'y be assumed tbat nearly all. if not aU, of those not occupying rdifices of their own, but utilizing a rented hall or room, have not the ser vices of a salaried officiating olerey man. We come to the conclusion then, tbat about three hundred per sons occupy pulpits in the synagogues of the United States. In many con gregations they ordinarily conduct the service and preach the t'-rmon: in others they have the assii-tatice of a cantor, or reader, to conduct the sevrces; in a few there are two minis ters, in addition to the cantor, or read er. In all the synagogues of the United States, save one, the service is con ducted on the seventh-day Sabhath. In this one the eervice is held on Sunday morning. Of the total number of ministers, about fifty are graduates of the Hebrew Union College located "t Cincinnati, which is controlled by the reform element, while there a-e three graduates of the Je-vi-jh Theological Seminary of New York, which is un der orthoJox anspices. Tuese institu tions are the only American rabbinical schools Before 1883, when tbe Hebrew Union College sent out its first graduates, congregations were dependent chiefly upon ministers e iucitei abroad, and, in most in stances, born abroad. The graduates of the Hebrew Un'on College have, in nearly all cases sup planted Germin-speaking preachers. It was not merely a question of lan guage tbat led the congregations to throw aside their German speaking spiritual heads. Tbe demand was for "men of the people," as well as schol ars. The old-school rabbis bad ben too much students and not sufficiently alive to what the people considered necessary adjuncts to the modern church. The Jewish people . saw around them tbe congregational acti vity of their Christian neighbors, and I felt that they should have the assls ' tsnoe of their ministers in doing like ! wise. Charles S. Bernheimer, in Godey's Magazine for February. J Science and Miracles- There are writers who think that tbey serve the cause of religion by explain , ing and showing the scientific reason lablencss of the various miracles of the bible, says the Herald and Presby ter. ThU method will not staid the test either of science or scripture. It over looks the object for which mirscl! s were given. They were God's teetimo mony in-favor of those whom be had ap pointed to important duties. Moses and Joshua were thus acknowledged before Israel. Christ's miracles were performed, and ths record of them written, tbat men might believe, and believing have life through his came. Christianity would lose more than it would gain by eliminating tbe miracul ous. Such elimina ion wou'd indeed be a surrender to infidelity, rather than an argument taken from it. Moreover, THE NEW YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION BUILDING, GALVESTON, TEXAS. Henry Rosenberg's Magnificent Gift. Another splendid building was added to tbe long list of association homes on New Year's Day. The bequest of Hen ry Roeeoberg of $65,000 to erect a build ing for the Galvtsion, Texas, Young Men's Christian association has been carried out, and on Jan. 1 the building was formally presented to the associa tion. A splendid testimouy to the character and pbilantropy of Henry Ro sen berger, tbe donor, was paid by Ma jor Hume. He said: "It was the purpose of him whose bounty provided ail that you see he e that this house should be a temple of cleanliness and development for body, mind and soul, and it is our earnest hope and well founded expectation that tbat purpose will fii d fulfillment. How shall we speak of him, our townsman, who devoted his wealth to this and oth er not less benignact? We are not here to pbrsse labored praises of one so separated from our lives by time, distance, rack or grtataeBS that we durst not go near Mm with the heart's homely and unaffected tribute. We recall rather and warm to the simple, sterling virtues of an upright and use ful mpn whose daily path ranso near to ours tha'i we exchanged ith him the greetings of every day fr'endship aod were his companions by the way. "The undeserved favor of the power ful; the temporary delusion of the peo ple; the accident of rain or cloud or sunshine at the crisis of battle; the thousand insxplicable capriees cf for tune, elevate rr en without merit i-'to ephemeral prominence, which memo rials in stone and bra's have vainly es sayed to prolong and deepen into fame; but not of such a man, " so' at taining to a place frcm which the fu ture must cast him down, does our memory now frame the image. For when these walls shall have crumbled very few of the miracles of the bible can be explainer with any plausibility by natural causes, God having provid ed against such explanation. His pur pose was to do things which could only be explained as manifestations of bis power. We have no fear that the ohuroh will perish because eonw thinkers do. not believe in miracles. Those to which reference is made involve no dif ficulty to one wbo studies the whole plan of which they are a part. He who simply opens the bible to read a dozen verses may wonder and doubt, but he who begins with the existence of God, as shown by bis works, and studies the character and power of God, and bis plaDs in dealing with men, will not be in the slightest de gree disturbed. It i no a-gum9nt against miracles to say that, they are violations of the laws of nature. We know comparatively little of these laws. Science has barely t.. uched their surface. Some are fam iliar in their operations, but others are only guessed at. ani others may be en tirely unthougbt of. There is a certain clock above one of the puhlio buildings of London, the hands of which go round according to the law of its machinery. Once just at noon, it was fe n to stop, and after a few minutes to start again, though no one touched or was near it. An astro nomical observer at Greenwich knew that It needed regulating, and by the power of an electric current stopped and started it Nature is so under God's control that he, seeing its vari ations and necessities, can regulate, or change, or do as he will with it. He can cause the sun to stop and go on as readily as a jeweler stops and starts a watch. To deny the possibility of this, or of any other miracle, is to deny the pow er of God, and the man wbo makes this denial should go back to first principles and settle the question whether things in the beginning came by chance or whether God created them. If the in finite povver of G d in creation ia re cognized, the manifestat'ons of that power in the mlraoles of the bible may be unhesitatingly bel'eved. Of Interest to Testators. The supreme court of Kansas has recently handed down a decision, the esencirt of which will have interest for ; religious p rons in general, and for Roman Catholics in particular. A ' devout Catholic woman, who died about 10 years ago, willed to each -member of her family a sum of money as a token of remembrance, but left j to ber grandson, a Cathol c priest, about $500 to pay for saying masses for herself and her husband. The heirs brought suit to have this re- . siduary clause set aside on the ground tbat it'ereated a trust for persons, ! who, not being alive, could not en force compliance with its provisions. Th court's opinion goes at some ltngth into tbe Catholic theory of purga-oty, and concludes that "in the light of these beliefs the act of Mary Brophy in making the bequest is reasonable a id consistent, and should be upheld un'ess it is prohibited by . eome positive rule of law." Consider-: able space is also devoted to a discus sion of religious toleration as it is ex pressed in the corstitution of the United States, acd several affirmative opinions based on this toleration are quoted. The court says that though "we may question the soundness of these belief, and deride the efficiency into duet this fair city will still hold, uc for got ten and undimmed, the modest, wholesome, manly inspiring t'adition of Henry Rosenberg. Prompt to pay life's tithe of mint and aoUe and cummin, he omitted not the weightier matte' s of tbe law judg ment, mi rcy and fa tb. He was dili gent, prudent, frank, honorable, gen erous, ju-t; and in his heart was rever ence for God and love for his fellow man." A feature of the opening exercises was the address of Rabbi Cohen, who said i part: j "We need such an institution ss this, ' and we need its continuance. Do you know, my friends, bow many people have been saved from alife of perdit'on ' by ju-t such an association? Have you any idea of the pe p'e who come to thi city, a port as it is, friendless and h'lmeles-, and wbo would be driven along the wrong road ere not such . an institution here to extend to them a he! pi g band? You do not know it, perhaps, as well" as I, because I come into contact with -that class of people every day, a-d I never fail to direct them to the a-o-ociUioi building. We can go through this city right and .left and p'ck up hundreds of young men every day who bave never been min i'eed to by su-h a soc ety as this Tbey do not know it benefits and tbey never will know until each and every i ns of us makes it his business to tell , of this build rig to the stranger within ' our borders." j Mr. Jens MoUer, a business man of Galveston, presented the association w tb ten subscriptions of 9100 each' from business men toward a fund for the commercial education of young men. Tbe building was crowded with young men and the citizens of Galves ton from the opening hour until late at night. of the service which she desired to have performed, the law has no care for contrarities of faith as to spiritual things, and will therefore sanction tbe bequest she made. Tbe law interferes with co mere religious opin'ons, nor with religious practices, except such as tend to subvert the foundation of public morals and order." THF SUNDAY SCHOOL, LESSON V, FIRST QUARTER, INTER NATIONAL SERIES, JAN. 30. Text of the Lnwon. Math, vt. ory Versen, 9-13 Golden Text, Bteth. 1, o Commentary by the Rot, U. M. Stearns. 6.. ."And when thou prayest thoa shalt not be as the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say onto you, They have their reward." Dr. Weston says concerning this sermon that Christ here draws the picture of the person who is to' be the result of His work, the Ideal man whom the Saviour is to make actual by saving him from sin. The only and in dispensable condition of admission to such a life is the consciousness of utter spiritual poverty, absolute destitution, a beggar with no power to alter his condition or make himself better. No man on earth, be he who or what he will, is excluded, and the character described In the beati tudes is within the reach of every man. 6. "But thou when thou prayest enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door pray to thy Father, which Is in secret, and thy Father, which seeth In so-, oret, shall reward thee openly." All be nevolence is not to be hidden, for when our good works glorify God we are to let our light bo shine. No one is forbidden to pray in public nor even to let It be known that we are fasting if God can be glorified thereby. What is forbidden is our own glory or advantage in anything. What Is required Is the glory of God In all things. Bee I Cor. x, 81; I Pet. lv, 11; John xlv, 13, 14. 7. "But when ye pray use not vain rep etitions, as the heathen do, for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. " There is nothing here forbid ding us to repeat the same petitions in our prayers, but what is forbidden Is vain repetition or thinking that there Is and benefit or merit in saying the same words over and over. True prayer Is the utter ance of heart desires for the glory of God in the name of Jesus Christ. 8. "Be not ye therefore like unto them, for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of , before ye ask Him." We are not forbidden to ask because our Fa ther knows, but we are to ask as children who have- confidence in a Father's love and wisdom. Children who tease and tor ment their parents do no credit either to themselves or to their parents; parents who permit it are not wise, and children who do it do not honor their parents. Confidence in God will meekly ask and be sure that if it is best It shall be given. 9. " After this manner therefore pray ye, Our Father which art In heaven, hallowed be Thy name." I have met many who use no more this form of words and per haps they do no sin by this omission ; as for myself I never expect to pray better or with more understanding or more in ac cord with the will of God than when I use these very words. I would not rob Israel, nor put myself under any bondage, but if Israel has a good thing which I, too, can enjoy, surely our Father would like me to enjoy it. How very near Jesus took Mary and us to His heart when He said, "Go to My brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto My Father, and your Father, and to My God and your God" (John xx, 17). 10. "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it Is In heaven." When, after the thousand years, satan shall have been sent to the lake of fire, and all things shall have been subdued unto Christ, then He shall hand over the kingdom unto God the Father that God may be all in all (Rev. xx, 10; I Cor. xv, 28), and this prayer snail be answered. 11. "Give us this day our daily bread." Our Father knows our need in this matter and will not withhold any good, yet It ia His pleasure that we aak Him for all that is Included In this phrase "our dally bread, " and Inasmuch as we have already learned that man shall not live by bread alone, out by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God (chapter lv, 4), the phrase must include a great deal. 19. "And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. " Forgiveness of sins In ills name is what we are to preach ev erywhere (Luke xxlv, 47), and when we receive Him we are assured that our sins are forgiven for His name's sake and shall no more be remembered (I John 11, 19; Isa. xlili, 25), but while we are in these mortal bodies we shall need constant for giveness; hence the comfort of the assur ance that "if we confess our sins He Is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteous ness." It is the sense of the vast forgive ness which we enjoy from Him that enables ns to be kind one to another, tenderheart ed, forgiving one another even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven us (Eph. lv, 82). 18. "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen." God never tempts any one to do wrong (Jas. 1, 13), but He does try men for their present and eternal good, and for His great glory, and it is blessed to be tried and receive grace to endure (Jas. i, 12). He will never try us above what we are able (I Cor. x, 18). As to the evil one, He will deliver us from every evil work and preserve us unto His heavenly kindgom (II Tim. lv, 18). The kingdom is His, the power Is His, and the glory. Salvation and service from beginning to end are all His, and of Him, and It be comes us ever to say, "Thine, O Lord, Is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Thine; Thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and Thou art exalted as head above all. 14. "For if ye forgive men their tres passes your Heavenly Father will also for give you. " Fellowship with God depends upon our being one vrith Him In all things. We may walk with Him, and He will dwell in us and walk in us (II Cor. vi, 16), but we must be willing to humble ourselves and agree with Him In every thing (Mic. vl, 8; margin; Amos 111, 8). 15. "But If ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." When Peter asked how often he should forgive his brother and suggested seven times as a possible ex treme, our Lord answered, " Until seventy times seven." He then told of one who was forgiven 10,000 talents, but would not forgive his fellow an hundred pence; hence he was severely punished. Our Lord add ed, "So likewise shall my Heavenly Father do also unto you if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their irespasses (Math, xvili, 21-85). Again It Is, as always, "Not I, but Christ," "Not L but the grace of God. " Nothing for self, not even anything in the way of justice as a primary thing, and never revenge, but always the glory of God that He may be magnified. C. M.
