THE PRESENT 0UTL00K OF FOREIGN M1SS10NS. [Wrltlen by Mra. F.L.Gibbs and pub llabed by requeat of tbe Wotnan'a For cign Missionary Socicty of White Stone M.E. Churcb, South.] To those of us who enjoy 'the civilization of our own enlighened land, to wbom the promises and mercie8 of our Kather are asonrce of hope eveu in our deepest sorrows, it ?eeni8 almost increditable to believe that even at this day there are those who 8it in the regiou of the shadow of deatb, without hope of this life, and of that bleesed hope of life beyend the grare. The niissionary idea is still a new idea. The thought of regenerating society, and the movement in that dire:tiou has beendoubtful and slow, and yet to the thoughtful student of ('od's Word, the command of our blessed Lord is imperative: "Go, teach all nations," and it is upon the bodies of those apostles, who heroically faced the martyr'e death, l>earing the gospel into the high places and tlie dark places of the world, that the missionary move? ment has risen und prospered. A hundrod years ago there were but few missionary societies in all Protestautiam; today there are inany. In China and Japan, in Mexico and lndia, and even in the dark continent, zealous and godly men and women are working for Christ, and at this time the baptism of cOnverta are numbered by thousauds. Statistica ahow that in Africa alone there are ovvr Ove hundred missionary stations, numbering tnore than four hundred thousand couverts, incrcasing on an average of tweuty five thousaud aunually. In a few years there will be rapid trausporta tion by land or by water from the ludiau Ocean to the Atlantic, from Capetown to Cairo. This tneaus an advauce of civilization; and we know that civilization is found only in those Iands where God iskuown, and the eroaa of Chriat is uplif ted. The day ia not far diatant when the scrcaming of the locomotive whietle and the rumbliug of traffic shall reverberate through the primeval forest of darkest heathendom and awake the natives from their savage lethargy. In China, with her milliousof sonls, the outlook is bright. The work of this field is eucouraging, especially when we learn of the work of the native converts, and that in some inataucea (rare aa yet) native mothera are leaving the feet of their little girl8 unbound and the young men are inarrying the women of their own choice. About the beginning of thia century the country waa cleaed to all mia8ionary influence. Today every one of ita eighteen proviuce8 haa been entered. The proapect for a univeraity at Peking and the great desire for univeraal enlightenment is now the oppor tunity for missionary zeal and enter pri8e. Not alone m China are they stretching out their hands for the bread of life, but in diatant lndia; and from Mexico and from the island8 of the sea, comes the appeal. In Cuba and Porto Xlico we have no longer 8trong oppoaition to the apread of the goapel. The expedi ency of establiahiug achoola and churches on theae islanda haa been recognized and our misaionariea have already entered the field. The fact that barriere have been removed, and in many inatancea doora once closed to the advauce of ciyilization opened, is a harbinger of progress in the apread of Chriatian work, and even today ia beiugfnlfilled the prophecy. "The people which aat in darkneaa saw great light to thera which aat in the region of the shadow of death, light is 8prung up." Paat experience showa that there ia a 8ure reward for missionary effort. The native converta themaelve8 are laboring to aave the souls of fcllow countrymen and thua the work ia paaaed from 80ul to aoul and the good work increaaed many fold. Aa wheu a pebbledropped iutothe nighty ocean, aenda the rippliug wavea onward and ouward, ever broadening until it is lost in infiuity, juat ao the teachiug and work of even one missionary extenda, and we cannot eaiiniate the extent of the influence of a aingle Jaborer. Uut wbut of the noble aruiy who are engnged iu Ihi* great war of Zion? The war wiih ain und eternal death? In our own honie laud, ia America alone, we have a migbty army of tncii and women laboring Zi-aloualy for Foreign Missious, aud even thelittle childrea are a tower of stiength, dropping the pennies io the great bank of Ileaven for the SOUI8 of the heatheu. Our young people in the various movemeutsof young people's work, are not only becomiog workers tliem selves, but are Bupporting foreign missionaries, andmany are volunteers for foreigu service. The highways are open, the op portunity is oura to take the world for Christ, the outlook was never brighter than today. The field is ripe for liarvesting, the workruen are ready. The iuvitation is ours, "Cotne over Christians if there be and help us ere we die." "The Heathen is promised as an inheri tauce aud the uttermost parts of the earth." Thie promise God will moat surely keep and perform. Whatmoreremainsbut to presson to Zion's war, so pray without ceasiug, and iu all things givethauks to Him who will give the victory. Now with these facts placed before us, beeides others which might be tnentioned, we no longer have cause to feel, as some contend, that our :offcr8 are emptied for naugbt, or jur labor used in vain, when we bave juch evidence that more good is being acoomplished in this direction than ever before, owing doubtle88, to the fact that greater efforts are being used to this end, as each year glides jwiftly away into the distant pust. rhen let us take renewed courage, ind pressforward in this noble work, ?end the precious message of Jesus tcrosa the uiightydeep, and brighten ip the darkened homes of our more infortunatesisters, pointing them to ;he outstretched arms of a loviug Savior, and when we are called to :ry the realities of another world, we ihall receive a crown of glory at the latnls of our Father in Ueaven. "Blest rivcrof salvation Purauc thine onward way; Flow ihou to every natlou Nor in thy richucss stay? Stay not Illl all the lowly, Trlumphant reach thcirhomc; Stay not (ill all tho holy Proclaim the Lord ia come!" CltANKY ^ItlTICS. Once in a while an editor has to 'break out" upon a sort of critic in duded in almost every newspnper's :oii8tituency. CJenerally it is the cind who thiuk they know what mght to go into his paper better han the editor himeelf,who make the rouble. Recently the editor of the i.'titnani (Conn.) Stamlard gave such :ritica to "know their place," iu vholesome fashion, as follows:? "There are persons who are so leeply interested in certain moral ind reli^ious niovements that they hink the newspaper should open ita :olumns for articles of any length md quantity; and because we will lot print them, charge us with be ng recreant to our principlea. "Such people think they know ust how a newspaper ought to be riited, much better thou the editor, md aa advisors, think we should not egard our fiuancial interest in do ng our work. A large claas of this cind, we find, will not permit their lames to be appended, for the reaaon t8 they tell us, that they do not de ?ire to incur the ill-will of anyone? >videutly unconcerned how much aoatility and fiuancial loss fall on the editor. "We print a paper to make a liv ng, as raen carry on any businea8. We desire to make it en iulluence for good. We desire to be at peace with all men as much aa is possible, t8 suggested by the Apostle, who cnew that with some men it was not possible, do what one might to pleaae them. Were it not for thecouimon lenae aud fair-mindedness of the av jrage person, and the manly forbear mce of the more intelligent and in luential class, making all allowance for human frailiies, an editor's life wronld be indeed a trying one." WHY GROW HORNS. Ilorna as head ornaments for bulls ire uow considered useless and dau ?erous. The conditions existing in their wiid state which reouired them for weapona of self-defense no longer nbtain, hence a smooth |>oll is pre ferred, which can be obtained by use jf a polled bull, or by use of stick 3auatic potash applied to the embryo horn when the calf is a few days old by first wetting the button or young horn and then rubbing with potash until burned suliiciently to kill it? that ie kill the horti, not the calf.?

The Cenaua Bureau has prepared a circular which it will diatribute through all theagricultural districts in the country. The docunient is a part of the cducatioual scheme adopted by the bureau for the pur pose of making all farmera familiar with the character of infonr.ation the census enumerators will, under the law, be entitled to receive. It will read as follows: "The first really valuable census of agricnlture in the United Statea was taken in 1850, of the crop8 of 1849. Thenext enumeration of agriculture will be taken in June. 1900, of the product8 of 1899. "Each farm will be accorded a separate blank, the contentsof which will not be known to any save sworn officera of the departmeut No uames will be published in connec tion with information sccured from tbe people. "Tax aaseaaors, collectois, and rqualizers oannot aerve as euumera tors, or have access to the cenau8 returna, or to the information therein contaiued. "A'farrn* isall the land cultivated or held for agricultural purpose8 under one managemeut, whether in a eingle body or separate parcels. "The enumerator will ask for the aize and value of each farm, the valne of buildings, aud the aggre gate value of all machinery, itnple meut8, vehicles, hamesses, etc, used thereon; the color or race of the occupant, and the ainount of land owned and leaaed, respectively, by said occupant. "He will aleo aak for the acreage and value of each crop, aud the acreage of improved, unimprored, and irrigated landa. "The designation ?each crop' includes all grains, cotton.corn, rice, sugarcane, sugar beeta, sorghum,hay, clover, wild grassea, gathered fornge, flax, hemp, hops, peanuta, tobacco 6eeds, uut8, tropical fruits, small' fruita, orchard fruits, nursery and greenhouse stock, broom com, Irish potatoes, sweet potatoea and yanis, all vegetables, including the product of all family, truck, and market gardens, etc, also new or uuusual crops, when fouud. "The enumerator will ask for the number and value of the live stock on the farm Juue 1, 1900, which will be reported uuder a number of heads. such aa horses, colts, mules, asses, cow8, heifers, steera, calves, bulls, ewes, rams, 1amb3, swine.goats, chickeiis, (including guinca fowl), turkeye, geese, ducks, bees, etc "The quuntity and value of milk, cream, butter, cheese, raisins, prucea, molasses, ayrup, 8ugar, egge, beeswax, honey, wool, wine, cider, vinegar, dried and evaporated fruita, foreat products,poultry and meatproduct8, and, generally, all articlea made at home, or for the home, from farm material8 during 1899 will be called for by the enumeratora. "If a per8on who removea from a farm between the end of the crop year 1899 and June 1, 1900, will leaye a written record of the pro? ducts and cropa of that farm for 1899 where it will reach the appro priate enumerator, the 8tatistics of hia operationa for that year will not be loat. He will be required to give the enumerator of the dietrict in which he lives on June 1, 1900, the acreage, value, buildinga, machinery, implements, and live atock of the farm he then occupiea. "If every farmer will begin at once to prepare a careful record of all facta whieh the enumerator will be instructed to record in June, 1900, he will save time for himself and the oflicer, and ensure more accurate returns to the Government. "The twentieth ceutury will begin on January 1, 1901. Therefore, the pending cenaua will afford to future generations a meaaure of the streugth and condition of the United Statea at the threahold of the new hundred year cycle. For that reason every one ahould take an active intereat in making it as nearly perfect aa posaible. If each farmer will make his owr* report perfect, the aggre gated report for every commuuity, and for the nation, will be perfect" BAPTIST PREACHER ON HELL. The Rev. Dr. Leu G. Broughton, paator of the Baptist Tabernacle, of Atlanta, Ga., receutly filled the pul pit of the Kev. Dr. A. C. Dixon, of Brooklyn, and alao preached in New York churches. In his sermona he warned his hearer8 to beware of the burning hell of Cotlon Mather and Jonathan Edwards. He waa criti ci8ed as iguorant and superstitious. He has now answered hi8 critics, and reuftirmed hia faith in everlaat ing future puniahment, particularly for those who differ with him aa to what hades ia hke. "I warned my New York congre gatioti8," he aaid, "to flee the tor tures of hell. Many learned Eaatern gentlemen expreaaed eurpriae that aenaible New Yorker8 would flock to hear such ignorance. One particu larly yehement critic aaid that the MfJ nligion was better than the old. I have no doubt the new relipon is more acceptable to luany Hi -w Yorkeraand Bostouiati3 th;in the old. "The suggeation that Itwfajaj l?a3 killed hell, may furnish comfortatdc food foriulidelP, l*ni tai iatis, Fnivor aalists aud 'higber critica,' but it is enough to know that the majority of those teaching along the line of Kiblecriticiam niid uubeliefwill liud their way to hell. "I believe that Hanard Fniver 3ity, with her Unitarian, Fniveraaliat and infidel propagandiam, will yet know nud realize, ?in the dav of Ilis wrath,' what hell is. The whole Df that teaching, let it come from a/hatever sourceit may, is hell bottnd. "I believe it is true that the great majority of our institutions of learn ing in the North and Wcst are goiog to hell at the rate of a mile a minute, iweepingas they go preachers and laymen by the thouaanda. The seat )f the devil today is in the great in ititutions of learning." REVEL OF THE PLITOCRA1S. Ilere is a pretty good effuaion from )ur Frederickaburg contemporary, :he S/<ir: "It is said that aboat a jilliou of dollars is represented 111 he Unitfd BtatM Sena'x-. It ia ? ?ery iniperialism of uiotu-y aud head juartera for all the trusta, combinea ind monopolies of the country. The ?uilroad magnatea are there in their rery higbeat estate. The moiiarclia )f the niinea strut down iftaj aislea vith their pockets full of nuggets >f gold and face full of brass. The dutocrats hold high carnival in its lalla and "no poor nian need ajiply" a wntteu orer the doorway of the ipper chamber. It is the rich nan'a club uud the rnulti-million ire's political goal. From the >outh we send our impccunious pol ticiana, for rich men here are like ngela' visit?very few and very far tetween?but how long thia condi ion wiil exist in this Southland we .uinot tell. It may be that as proa ?eiity waahea gold over the boaom f our sectiou we may join the pio esaion and aerve up rich men to evel in the luxury -and glory of egislating." rm: WALL STRKET OAMB. Charles T. Yerkes, the Chicago nilliouaire, says that the nian who peculutes iu Wall Street will loae in he eud. "I defy any broker," said Mr. 'erkes, "to ahow me any man who laa dealt with him for two yeara or iiore who haa come out with niouey. have not looked at a atock list for hirtoeii yeara. At that time, after iiany a year's experience on the Stock ixchange, I left it, ao thoroughly iaguated that I never waut to enter t again. I repeat, the man who 0*8 into Wall Street to make a for uue ia an idiot, and he ought to iave a guardian." Such is the verdict of one of the hrewdest finacciers of the age, yet here are thousands of "idiots" who ?elieve that they can beat the game, nd ao keep on playing it. The Young Holiday Iconorlast.

EMULSION 0 looks like cream; it nour j J ishes the wasted body of < i the baby, child or adult j j better than cream or any Jj other food in existence. It 2 bears about the same rela* < | tion to other emulsions that 1 > cream does to milk. If you have had any expericncc with other so-cailed "just ?s good" preparations, you 1 will find that this is a fact. $ The hypophosphites that a.-: combincd with the cod-!ivex oil g've additlbnal value to it becausc they tone up the nervous $y?trm and impart sircngth to the whele body.
