Tllli BIBLE.
Swaltr It It thin honey and the htntynmb.
A clergyman who had labored sue
cessfully during many years in the ser
vicu of (ho Redeemer, was present on
une occasion at a roligiotia meeting,
field during a time of revival. The
meeting was opened by the recitation of
H vetse of Scripture l>y each person
present, in turn, and as there were fifty
or sixty individuals in the room, there
were so many verses repeated. On
tioming out the clergy man remarked, "1
was uever before sn impressed with the
wonderful variety of the Bible. Each
vorso to-day might have furnished the
thomefot a sermon; some ofthem could
not have been exhausted in many ser
mons? and yet how various, how di
versified in their character and sub
jects I"
"Yes,'1 replied tho friend to whom the
remark was addressed, "and hod you
been more acquainted with the history

present, you might havo seen that, in
many cases, the passage repealed was
an index to ihe ropeater's Btateofmind.

" Oh? what.nines of wealth aro thore

lothing ! This is ono use and need of
Mictions; they mako the word of God

Better than California Gold.
A young man left our office wlm is on
hid way from California to liia home in
.fuckson county Mn, which ho left in
1850 for (lie laud -of gold. IIo wished
to purchase a Pocket-Bible and Testa
ment, Hymn Book, Bunyan's Pilgrim,
Pike's Guide to Young Disciples, Kil
'o*s Cyclopedia of Biblical Literature,
ifcc.'H Our interest was at once excited
that one on his teturn from such a mis
sion should wish to make mc/i purchases.
' Wo inquired alter his success, when he
: mid us, while his face grew radient with
iho light which shines down from that
batter land, that .he bad succeeded in
finding gold, but be found something
more than all tho gold of those mines,
I'oforehs left them?he found hope in
Christ. While attending a Methodist
camp-meeting, he was convicted of sin,
nud gained a saving view of Christ. He
soon after joined aChuich, and is now
fully detm mined lo give himself and his
nil to the seivice of liodi With no or
dinary emotions we listened to llis sim
ple. eloquent narration, furnished him
with the books lie desired, took his name
a subscriber to the Watchman, and
sent him nit his way. May Heaven pre
nerve him, and make him a rich blessing
lo westeru Missouii.
Such incidents as this are well calcu
lated to (strengthen tho fiiiih of Christ
ians. Let us not forget California, and
tho absent ones who ate there wander
ing in scutch of things lhat peiisb. Let
us pray that healing walvismay be pour
I'd upon the occasions lor atrife which
now trouble our Zion, and that all may
ba united in the one great end of saving
souls. Of how little cunsequence are
,iill other objects, when; this is lost sight

toring to*crfect health, in some cases where the
fatient has been considered beyond medical aid
n the treatment of Seminal weakness, or disar
rangement of the functions produced by self abuse
or excess of venery, I do not know his superior
in the profession. I have been acquainted with
the Author some thirty years, and deem it no
moro than justice to him as well as kindness to
the unfortunate victim of early indiscretion to re
commend him as one in whose professional skill
and integrity they may safely confide themselves.
Alfbed Woodward, M. D.
i This is, without exception, the most compre
1 hensive and intelligent work published on the
1 class of diseases on which it treats. Avoiding all
technical terms, it addresses itself t? the reason
of its roaders. It is free from all objectionable
matter, and no parent, however fastidious, can
object to placing it in the hands of hiasons. The

" No teacher or parent should be without the

A Presbyterian clergyman in Ohio, writing o
'Hunter's Medical Manual,' says: "Thousand!
upon thousands of our youth, by evil example
and influence of the passions, have beed led into
the habit of self-pollution, without realizing the
sin and fearfii! consequonces upon themselvei
and their posterity. The constitutions of thous
ands who are raising families have been enfee
bled, if not broken down, and they do not know
the cause or the cure. Any thing that can be
done so to enlighten and influence the public;
mind as to check and ultimately to romove this
wide-spread sourco of human wretchedness,
would confer tho greatest blessing next to the .
religion of Jesus Christ, on the present and comr.
ing generation. Intomperance in the use of in
toxicating drinks, though it has slain ^hous/ndi
