This is the day which the lard bath made. Let us rejoice and bI stad in it. Oh, ye who have been &amting for Sunday pleasures in the 'n.et, and on the river bank, and in em hiouse of sin. I commend to you tis holy day and holy service! I do met inuvte you to swallow a great bit rnems or to carry a heavy yoke; but I iaite you to feel in body, mind and eash the thrill of joy which God ha handed down in the chalices of the EEREtaR AND UJIMBE AT THE SAB BATH. With what revulsion and with what we must look out on that lare of peeos in our day who would discredit upon the Lord's day. are two things which Christian gought never to give up; the one Bibe, the other is the Sabbath. away one, and you take both. either, and farewell to Christi •ity in this country, farewell to our 'vil and religious liberties.

I ht it with me over the moun TIbr are two or thre ways in whieb we can war against Sabath tUahing uagem in this day; and the a thing is to get our children right o this subect, and teach them that SSabbath day W the holiest of all So days. and the bat and the gladdest.

Iow THE EVIL I TO - PFOUGHT. There is another way in which we can war against the Sabbath breaking nages of the courtry at this time, and that is by making our houses of wor ship attractive and the religious sarvioes inspiriting. I plead not for a gorgeous audience chamber; I plead not for groined rafters or magnioceat freoo; but I do plead for comfortable churches, homelike churches-places where the church going population b. havo as they ought to. Make the church welcome to all however poorly clad they may be, or whatever have been their past history; for I think the church of God is not so much made for you who could have churches in your own house, but for the vast population of our great cities, who are treading on toward death, with no voice of mercy to arrest them. Ah I when the prodigal comes into the church, do not stare at him as though he had no right to come. Give him the best seat you can find for him. Sometimes a man wakes up from his sin, and he says: "I'll go to the house of God." Perhaps he comes from one motive, perhaps from another. He Mids the church dark and the Chris tian people frigid (and there are no people on earth who can be mp.e rigd than Christian people when they tly) and the music is duD, and be never comes again.

Ah I you can't drive men outof their sins, but you can cona them out-you can charm them out I would to'God that we could all come to a hiqbef appec.iation of thia Sabbath huitage We cannot count the "aaurms of one Christian Sabbath. It spreads out over us the two win"s of the archangel of mercy. Oh, blessed Sabbath l blessed Sabbath! They scoff a great deal about the old Puritanic Sabbaths, and there is a wonderful amount of wit expended upon that subject now-the Sabbaths they used to have in New Epgland. I never lived in New England, but I would rather trust the old Puritanic Sabbath, with all its faults, than this modern Sabbath, which is fast becom ng no Sabbath at all. If our modero -abbatism shall produce as stalwart Christian character as the old New England Puritanic Sabbatism, I shall be satisfied, and I shall be surprised. Oh, blessed day blessed day! 1 should like to die some Sabbath morn ing when the air is full of church music and the bells are ringing. Leav ing my home group with a dying blessing. I should like to look off upon some Christian assemblage chanting the praises of God as 1 went up to join the one hundred and forty and four thousand anld the thousands of thou sands standuig around the throne of Jesus. Hark! I hear the bell of the old kirk on the hillside of heaven. It is a wedding b-ll, for behold the bride groom cometh. It is a victor's bell, for we are more than conquerors thsough him who hath loved us. It is a Sab bath bell, for it calls the nations of earth and heaven to everlasting re pose. Oh when, thou city of my God, hahll I thy courtas auud? Where cougregsaLns ne'. brhak upi And Sabbaths have no end. Marn 3men Worn... The women of Arles, France, are re nowned for their beauty, which is of a penliar type. It is a rsemarkable prool of the isolation of each little commun ity in an old nation like this that one inconsiderable city should have had for age a peculiarity of this kind. I certainly never saw so many beautiful women and girls at once as those that thronged the streets and filed into the ohurches on Sunday morning, all re sambling each other; dark, liquid eyes, full lips, finely molded features, crowned with an abundance of black hair, set off b a becoming head dress with long velvet lappels.
