K. L. Stntnton. Mr. Moodj's Lnst Scrinou ln Clilcngo. "For the grace of Ood that brlngeth salvatlon hath appeared to all men." "Teachlngus.denylng ungodll ness and worMly lusts, we sbould llve soberly, rlght eously, and godly In thls piesent world." Jolm heard tbat sweet, silver Voico saying: " John, writo these tbings to the church I" Atid ho took up his pen and wrote. And tbe Voico said : " Put in one more invitation before you seal up the book I" And this is tbe last invitation let down into this world : " Tho spirit and the brido say, come. Let him that heareth, come." And he wrote, and tho Voice again said : " Pat this in, 4 Whoso ever will, let him come nud take of the water o life f reely.' " Friend, will you tako it to-night ? It is freely offered. I read some time ago of a Sunday-school teacher who bad a class of little boys, and ho had a silver watcb, and ho offered it to tbe largeat boy in the class, and said : 41 Take that watch ; I give it to you." And the little boy laughed at him and wouldn't take it. And bo offered it to the nezt one, and when he got to the smallesl boy in the class the little fellow reached up and took it. The teacher said : " Keep it and put it in your pocket, you have taken me at my word. Take it home. It is yours. Don't bring it back to me." And the rest of the class says : 44 Teacher, you didn't mean that. You didn't mean to give him that for good '!" 14 Yes, I did," said the teacher. 4,Obl if we had known that, we would have taken it." Here are representatives of the whole North-west, and God can nse the weakest saint here, if you are only will ing to be nsed. Some one sent me a tract entitled, 44 VVhat Is That in Thy Hand 7" I liked tbe titlo, and it brings out this thought : When God called Moses to go down into Egypt, Moses began to ezcuse himself. At last God said, " What is that in thy hand 7" It was a rod which Moses had cut from a bramble bush, probably to help him tend his sbeep. And God said : 14 With tbat ye sball de liver the children of Israel." I can im- agine Moses starting down into Egypt and meeting some iree-thinker who bad been acquainted with him. Ile said to Moses : 44 Moses, wbere aro you going ?" 44 1 am going down lo Egypt." 44 What are you going down there for?" 44 To bring np 3 000,000 of bondmen." 44 Do you think Pnaraob will let them go 7" "I don't Snow. 1 will bring tbem." "Wbere is your army ?" 44 1 have no army." 44 What will you do it with?" 44 With this rod." Wby, he would have tnougbt the man was clean crazy, but bear in mind, God had Iinked his almigbty power to that rod. He had given his word that Moses should deliver the children of Israel. I euppose tbe king looked upon tbe rod witn a great deal ol contempt ; but when he refused to let the children of Is rael go, Moses turned the watera into blood with it, and he brought plague upon the Egyptians with it, and when he stretched tbat rod out over tbe watera of the lted Sea, the mighty host of God passed through dry shod. When they wanted water in the wilderness he struck the rock with that rod and a pure beautifnl stream flowed out, and the weary, thirsty multitude were revived by it. Centuries have rolled away, but the story of the rod has not failed yet. Let us give God what we have and not what we have not. You say you haven't much. Just use what you bave. A man said some time ago tnat he lelt like a mere cipher. Just put God along sideof a cipher and itbecomes a good deal. When a man is nezt to nobody God will take him up and use him. When the committee of cfficial men from Jeru salem went down to see who John tbe Baptist was, he said : 44 1 am nobody. ara nothing but a voice." But when Christ came John began to preach down himself and up Christ, and he was a mighty preacher. When we, who are nothing, want to work for Christ he will use us. Look at Joshua with bis 600,000 men walking around tbe walla o Jericho, Buppose yon had met him on the seventh day and asked him: 44 Joshua, what does all this performance mean 7 You have been walking around here six davs, What aro you going todo?'' "I am go ing to take the walla ot Jericho." 44 You are 7" 41 Yes : we will have them down before nigbt." 44 Where is your battery 7 Wbere is your artillery 1" " Here with these rams' horns." And thev went on blowing tbeir rams' horns and down went tbe walls of Jericho. If we cannot blow a hne trumpet, let us take what we have, and with a etammering tongue, but with a noari on nre ior uod, we can bo used I do not know that Mary was a strontr, minded woman, or tbat she wae wealtby as ueauuiui : pernaps sne uia not move in the very best sooiety, but there is one thing I do know she could love. Where ever the goBpel of the Son of God was preached, that story is told out. I snt pose Mary forgot about herself, but she loved ber Master, and she poured that ointment upon hlm. iMgbteen centurlu have rolled away, but the name of Mary of Uethaijy is as Ireah as lt ever was, luppose there is no woman a name bo freeh as hera, ezcept the name of Mary, the mother of the Savior. I can imaeine some man when Christ was on eartb. prophesving that that story would be told in the nineteenth century, and not a man on the face of the eartb would have believed it. Wo look back on tbe days of miraolea, but we torget we are Jivtng 1 the davs of miracles. Mlssionary sooi etiea in New York and London have put the story of Mary into 250 languages and liavo sent out millions ot copies ol it. Tbat story will llvo as long os tho church of God la upon earth. Sho made herself immortal by that one act. Nothing you do for Josus Christ is small. Wo want to-day men and women who arowilling to do. I supposo if these reporters had been living in the days of Mary, and hoard on tho Btreets ot Jerusalom tbat sho had broken that alabastor box upon him, they would not have thought it was worth no tlciug; but it has outllved everything olse that took place tben. It they had seen that widow east thoso two mites into the treasury of the Lord they would have said, 44 There will be no one in Jerusalom tbat will care Ior tbat." llut seel Eighteen centuries have rolled away, and that story has outlived anything elso that occurred there. Now our business men of Chicago do not havo time to pray threo times a day. They havo to go on 'Chango and buy and bargain, and make money, and pilo up millions. They say they have too much business to attend to prayer threo times a day. But this man Daniel, who was the prime minister of that coun try and bad all the business of that state to do, had time to pray tbree times a day ; and who waa the great mau 7 He or they 7 Where are now thenamesoi themerchant princes of Babylon ? of their wise men ? You don't know the names of ono of them. All have faded away centuries ago ; but tho namo of Daniel still shinea, brighter tban ever ; and they tbat turned away to rejotce in tbe Lora aro as the stars for ever and ever. Dear f rienda, let us, as wo hasten to go from this hall, say, " iiord, bero am 1. iord, choose me. 1 lay myself at my feet soul and body a living sacriflco on the altar of God. Let me hear thy voice sending me out into the white iields to worK Ior thy glory." CArwwn at Work. Aslccp ln Ferll. Sin is an anodyne. The Word of God teaches us that everv sinner'a state is not only one of guilt, but a Btate of moral alumber. Every unconverted man ia God'a sight asleep. Natural sleen locks up the pbysical senses under its spell, and if the sleeper drearas, he actn ally regards his visions aa solid realities. bo it is with the ainner ; he does not rec- ognize his fearful guilt ; he no more sees himself in the mirror of God's Word than a man who is fast asleep can see himself in the looking-glass held before him. He is blind to the terrors of the life to come, and to tbe claims of God and the alluring offers of heaven. You may set before n aleeper the most magnificent pioture of Kapbaei, or tbe most temhc productiona of the pencil of Dore, and tbey are botli no more to him tban a dead blank wall. So have 1, and other ministers of Christ, aet before impenitent sinnera, a hundred times, the joys of true religion and the certain, inevitable doom of sin ; yet we produce no impression upon them, becausa tbey are nnder an illusion. They feel no danger because they feel no guilt. They ezcuse their own sins, with plausible pre- texts and seii-extenuations. lt they do admit their sinfulness they cling to their sins ; some with a promise of repentance by and by, and some under a vague hopa that liod will " not be too hard on them." or will cive them another chance in an- other world. Nearly every impenitent man or woman is a dreamer. "II," said the eloquent Addison Alezander, 44 you know what it is to be aroused by a heavy orash from a pleasant dream, what will it be when the long dream ol me is dia solved by the blast of tbe trumpet of God 7 It is related by a man who was on board a steamer tbat blew up that when the ex plosion oconrred he was last asleep. liis first sensation was a pleasant one, as though he had been flying through the air. He opened his eyes, and he was in the sea I May there not be something like this in the ainner who dies with his soul asleep, and imagines himself soaring toward the skies, but awakens amid the roar ot a lasbing tempest, upon tbe ocean of God's wratht" This is tremendona preaching ; would to God that we heard more of it from the pulpit of our dayl Never was it more needed ; for multitudes are rocked to Blumber at the raast-head by the opiate ol unbeliet. bomo doubt tbe lnspiration of God'a Word, and so are not disturbed by its tbreateninga. Some doubt the exiatence of a hell. Some are lulling their consciencea to dleep by lying promiaes of future repentance. Some are jo absorbed in tbe money-making or the pleasure-seeking of this life that they bave shut their eyes to tbe ldea ol eter nity. I care not, my impenitent friend, what may be tbe cause of your elumb'r, or what may be the anodyne that Satan nas used to drug you. Mn is a mocker, You aro under ita spell. You do not real izs your terriDie guilt in rejectwg the savior, or your terrible danger in risking a 44 wrath to come." You cannot sleep much longer. Ddath will soon loose your frail hold on shroud or spar, and hurl you off, as from mast-head, into the bottomleea deepl When you awake it will be too late, it will be an awakening to abame and remorse anu everlasting contempt. JJr, T. L. Uuyier. ltellglous Education. But beyond all which sohools or uni versities can teach is a knowledge of a higher order, which pertaius to the moral nature ol man. The trutbs which revela' tion can acquaint us with are ricber than any that nature and art have to beatow. and tbe acquisition of these is indispensa' bie to the proper and tri e education Herein especially is seen the fitness of tha deQuition of Cbristian education. Whilo that education comprises and demanda all that has been enumerated, it demands thede, that tbey may serve to the bighest end, the nurture and dbciplino of tbe soul. The power of intellect unhappily may be separated Irom tbe power ot vir tue. If man had not fallen lrom his first eatate, it would not be so, but in tbat fall hia will Butlered more tban his iutellect though as before remarkod, intellect is impeifect and liable to error. In tbe moral training of ohildren little can be done in aohools in comparison with wbat is possible in a Cbristian home. Tho mother' admonitiou is tbe most potent initruction herein, but moral culture ia an essential part of education, and is tb f ulfillment and syinmetrical fliiishing of the education ol tbe pbysical and the intel lectual being. Addrcst of Mont, Capel, " The heavens deolare the glory of God," but how few look upto the heavena with the thought that GmI is the maker of heaven and earth. Men bave eyes to eee, and aee not ; ears to bear, and hear not. They live withont a serioui thought ol this lllt or tbe ltie to oome. Tiiose who have falth in God Bhow their falth by their works. Tbey follow joa ana Keep uis commandments. They are not idlers in the kingdom of God. Tbey are workers of rigbteouaness and willfng servants of the Lord.

Tho rcpubllcans of Iowa, in tho elec tlon of laat weok carrled the state by Bomo thirty thousand majoritv. Thoir atate convention for tho uomination of candidatea committod tho pnrty, if auo cesnful, to tako tho proper measurca for enabling tho people to voto again on the question of a prohibitory amendmcnt to tho constitntion. Tho fegislature is ro publican in both honses, and will un doubtedly preparo to pass snch an amend mcnt ; and if it shall bo passed by the next leglslatnre, as it will be if tho legis latnre is republican, then tho question of prohibltion will bo again snbmitted to the people. All this will tako time for its accomplishment ; yet the end may and will be gained, unless there should ba a very decided change in the publio senti ment of that state. It will not be gained by the prohibitiomsts, as a dlstinctlve political organization, but through the republican party espousing the principle of prohibition and voting for its success. The oleotion last week in Ohio was disas trous to tho republicans. The temperance question was the one great absorblng and determining factor in this olection ; and the defeat of the republi cans is due to two facts. One is tbat the democrats, being the rum party in Ohio, were able to securo the votes and the money of the liquor and grog-shop inter est in the state ; and the other is the withdrawal of votei from the republican ticket by the political prohibitionists. If these votes had been east for the republi can, as we think they should have been in tbe best interests of the temperance cause, the rum party would have been defeated, notwithstanding its support by the liquor interest. The political prohi bitionists have, by what we look npon as an enormous blunder, dono just the very thing that the rum party wanted them to do. Their action has been sufficient to turn the scale against the party that en- acted tne bcott law. that gave the peoolo the opportunity to vote on the prohibit ory amendment. and that has done for the causo of temperance whatever has been done by legislation in the state of Ohio. and in favor of the party so notori- ously anti-temperance that it is no misno- mer tocallit the rum party. That which wo feared, but desired to prevent, nas come to pass ; ana what satislaction tho political prohibitionists of Ohio can derivo from the result is more than wo cen see. They certainly cannot ezpect any help to their causo from the demo crats. That party is too stronely allied with the rum interests to do anything for temperance. But for that interest it would not bave succeeded; and it dara not and will not offend the rum power in Ohio. The only party that can or will legislate favorably for temperance, if in power, is the republican party ; and this, in our jadgment, was a sufficient reason why every prohibitionist in the state should have given it his earnett sun- port, especially when not to do so would be indirectly voting for the rum party. The amendment has failed, tbere is not the slightest hope that this legislatnre will propcse the same or a similar amendment for another vote by the people. The Scott law may be re pealed by the demccrats, and free rum, without the restraint of license or any taz on the traffic, may bear f nll sway in Ohio. The wholo thing briefly summed np, reads tbus : The prohibition amendment is a failure; the Scott law will be re pealed ; the rum party will be in power ; and free rum in Ohio will be the order of the day, nntil the people, inclnding tbe political prohibitionists, sball become wise enough to correct the mistako of this fall. Tbese prohibitionists would do well not to infer that their strength is represented by the vote east for the amendment. The great mas3 of this vote was given by per 8ons who at the same time had the wisdom to vote for the republican ticket, and whose votes would have elected the ticket, if the political prohibitionists had followed their wise example. The Inde pendent. Tho Condltlons of Intemperauce. It is a sicnificant f act that in every civ ilized country of this earth drunkenness is rarest among theclasses who havo other and better convlvial resources. In the United States, where the 44 almighty dol lar " coufers unlimited privileges, tbe well-to-do people are the most temperate in the world, the poor the most intemperate. In Turkey, wbere the lower classes are in dulged in many pastimes which are con sidered below the dignity of an effendi, the poison-vico is actually confined to tbe upper ton ; temperance reigns in the cot tage, while opium-smoking and secret dram-drinking prevail in the palace. In Scotland, where all classes have to con form to the moral by-laws which discoun tenance holiday recreations, total absti nence is extremely rare. For 44 Nature will bave her revenge, and, when the most ordinary and barmless recreations are for bidden as sinful, is apt to seek compensa tion in indulgences which no moralist would be willing to condone. The charge brought against the Novatians in tbe early f$es of the church can, with equal plausibility, be brought against the i'uri tans in onr own day. One vice, at all events, which Cbristians of every school, as well as non-Christian moralists, are agreed in condemning, is repnted to be a special opprobrinm of Scotland : and tbe strictest observance of all thoso minute and oppressive Sabbatarian regulations to which we reterred iust now has been fonnd compatible with consecrating the dny ot rest to a quiet but unlimited asslm ilation of tbe Uquid which inebriates but does not cheer. And nnder the old re gime to be drnnk in private, though of course not sanctioned as allowable, would have been accounted a far less heinous outrage on the dignity of the Sabbath than to whistle in the public .tret." (Tbe Saturdau Review, July 19, 1870, p, 75.) Tbere is, iudeed, no doubt tbat the 44 snurUiug, wbining saints, who groaned in spirit at the sight of Jack in tbe Green," have driven as many pieasure-seeKers from tbe play-ground to the pot-house as despotitm haa turned treemen into out. laws and robbers. For the practical al ternative is not between conventicles and rum-riots, but between healthful and baneful pastimes. Before wecan begin to eradicate tbe poison-babit we must make reform more attraotive than vice ; and. as lonc as the champions of temper ance shut tbeir eyes to the signifioance of that trutb. their Ieglslative enactments will alwavs remain dead-letter laws. Our worst defeota we owe, in fact, less to the shrewdness of our beer-brewingopponents than to the blindness of onr Sabbatarian alllea. Popular Science Monthly. Dakota haa a peouliar climate.
