The Bible Stadent and R"e11gwus Outleok.
Several libraries of the " World's
Best Literatrwe" have been recently
published and advertised and bought
extensively. We do not particularly
admire these works. But the idea
set us thinking, and we purpose writ
ing now of another library, of sixty
six volumes, which are in the reach
of all, and which may justly be styled
"The World's Best Literature."i
This is really a comprehensive
library, of sixty-six works, by some
forty different authors, including
history, philosophy, poetty, fiction,
law, essays, letters and religion. The
writings are not confined to one age
either, but c6ver a period of 1,600
years Moreover, the masterpieces
here gatbered together are the foun
dation and fountain head of most of
the rest of the world's good literature.
The most able of all the world's
writers, with few exceptions, bave
acknowledged their indebtedness to
these authors by continued quotation
and allusion, it not by actual confes
sion and tribute. No one who makes
any pretensions to literary culture,
can afford to neglect these writings.
Dr. Wordsworth speaks thus of them:
"The Bible alone, of all books in the
world, addresses itself to the whole
man. It exercises his memorv,
strengthens his reason, controls his
passions, informs lois judgment, iega.
ates his conscience, sanctifies hie will,
enlivens his fancy, warms his im9gi
na.ion, cherishes his affections, stimu
lates his practice, quickens his hope,
and animates his faith."
Others have testified similarly. Sir
Wm. Jones wrote on the fly-leaf of his
Bible: "I have regularly and atten
tively read these Holy Scripturea, and
am of opinion, that this volume, inaa
pend.-ntly of its divine origin, contains
more sublimity and beauty, more pure
morality, more important history, and
finer strains of poetry an-! eloquence,
than can be collected from all other
books in whatever age or language
they may have been composed."
Any one who is perfectly master of
- the literature in these sixty-six volumes
-~- must of necessity have a cultivated
taste, or in other word~s, literary cul
tare. Where can historians be found
so perfectly accurate, mpartial, and
dramatic-to useiProf Rogers' word -
as Moses andjthe wri:ers of Samuel,
Kings, Chronicles, and tthe Gospels
and Acts? -Calmly land majestically
.the facts are narrated without comn
ment to bias the reader. The short
comings and falls and egregiou- sins
- --f -the-heroie, wise and good are told
without concealment, qualification or
- . apology. Yet nowhere do we find the
dry, mechanical record of the anna
Or take heroic poetry combined
with dramatic form, aid wbare have
we anything grander than the Epic of
-- Job? Whero can sublimer passages
be found than in this work? There
san be no grander bursts of seloquence
than are to be found in the prophets;
ne profounder soul-thrills than those
in the Book of Psalms; no more beau
tiful and absorbing passages than in
the parab:es; no more powerful rea
soning than Paul stives ui on occasions.
- Tbere is humor '.iin Judges, wit and
wisdom in Proverbo, a4rcaem and
-satire in Galatians and elsewhere.
We are arguing on a low earthly plane
-for the excellence c& th.: Bible as a
field of study for literary cuilture. be
cause we expect to help our readers
who will follow us to better mneth'ds
of study and a better untderstandinig
of the Bible, which is in truth a library
of sixty-six volumes, though' ordinarily
bound irto one.
For fear that we will be considered
as ezparte and biased in car estimate
of the literary excelience c' th volumes
in this library, which ' - wish to
commened to the examins; : , o:or
readers, we will close wi,.. toe esti
mate of a literary critic, ntot tu
biased. We take the quotation fr.>mn
Shutter's "Wit and Humor of the
Bible." "As i partlcuiar book, the
* Bible is r.n unequaled son rce of literary
inspiration. As a boot of religious
truth, it is supreme; but religious
truth without any impairment of its
value or obscurity of its meaning, may
be studied from the literary stand
point; in fact, in the light of literary
criticism, or tested by the usual canons
of the scholar, it will appear more
sacred, mnore beautiful, more divine.
Never forgetting that it is our manual
of religiou, it is also the vehicle of the
most wonderful literature in human
annals, and precedes in importance all
others. There is no book so com
posite in character and yet so har
moniioue - in plan, so multiplex in
styles and yet so educational in
rhetoric and logic, 5s) vr.ried in con
tents, and y et so progreesive ini phi
losophy and religion, as the Bible.
Taken as a whole, it is massive, comn
prahenaive, a revelation of the Infinite.
Studied in its parts, it stimulates
single faculties while it ministers
nourishment to :he whole frame, Its
histories are more compact than those
of Herodotus, Gibbon or Macaulay ;
its poetry, whose ker iM a myvtery,
quiets Homer, Shakespeare and Teniny
son ; its prophecies are unique climaxes
of wisdom, both in drapery and sub
stance; its biographies excel those of
Plutarch, Irving, Carlyle aturi Bosweli;
it: chronicies of wars atre superior to
those of Julius Cae'sar, Wellington,
Napoleon and Ulyssea Grant; its.
epistles eclipse throse of P in- . Madame
Sevigne and Francis Bacon; i:s l.ws,
in their ethical and spiritual import.
are quite beyond Jnstinian, Blaskstone
and the English Parliamett. Every
phasis of literature, every norm of
wisdom, is in the Bible. It ministers
t. all tastes and arouses the slumber-.
inj intellects of all who can compre
hend the difference betwcen reality
and Action, and who inc i ie to virtue
rather than vice."
iaekNin confesses his indebtenness to
the Bible, Homer and Sir Walter Scott,
for his mental discipline; Charles
Reade pronounces the characters in the
Scripture a literary marvel. Matthew
Arnold daily read the New Testament
in Greek for its style; Milton could
cot have written Paradise Lost with
out Genesis: Renan's witchery of style!
is traceable to the New Testament.
Job has taught the poets the art of
construction, and David has sungan
unaving melody into the ears of the
raca. The Book of Rath is the model
id% I, and the Books of Estber anL
Daniel abound in incomparable dra
matic elements; 14aiah has plumed the
statesman for oratorical lights; Jere
miah has opeued the fountains of
pathos and Eentiment in pathetic souls;!
Ezekiel has furnished a usable style of
jidicial denunciation for tbe criminal
lawyer. Of all books, whether rhet
oric, logic, vocabulary, pocetr, phil
osophy, history, or whatever te the
end, the Bible should be firt aud most
care*ully studied, it3 literarv spirit
and form should be slosely traced and
described, and its truth should be
reverently incorporatei into the daily
speech, thought and life."
With all thi, Christians seeking lite
rary cu'ture will spend the Sabbath
hours even reading Marie Corelli,
Alphonse Daudet, or some sensational
newspaper, while this library of the
World's best literature rests idle on
their shelve;.! B

A majority of the ills af1licting

During the early part of O.tober,
1896, I contracted a bcd cold which
settled on my lungs and was neglected

appeared in an incipient state. I was

There is no better medicine for the
babies than Chamberlain's Cougt,
Remedy. Its pleasant taste and prompt
and effectual cures make it a tavorite
with mothers and sinall chiidren. It
quickly cures their _coughs and colds,
preventing pneumonia or other serious
consequences. It also cures croup and
has been used in tens of thousands of
cases withotu a single failure so far as
we have been able to learn. It not
only cures croup, but when given as
soon as the croupy cough appears, will
prevent the attack. In cases of whoop
ing cough it liquefies the tough mucus,
making it easier to expectom ate, and
lessens the severity and frequency of
the paroxysms of coughing, thus de
priving that disease of all dangerous
sonsequences. For sale by McMaster
