Religion Laid Aside.
A little girl had been rummaging
in her mother's trunk. There she
found a church letter, which her
mother had neglected to present
to the church into whose neighbor neighborhood
hood neighborhood she had moved. The little
girl rushed into her mother's pres presence,

found your religion in your trunk."
There is a needle point in that
story for a great many people.
With far too many the neglected
church letter comes to be about
the only part of the old church
life remaining. But surely a trunk
is a poor, dark, mothy place for
one's religion. X.

One of my noblest Sunday school

that on her dying bed she said,
My path through the valley is

. Nothing opens the sinner's eyes
to see himself and the Savior of

Bible is the book to reveal iniquity
in the secret parts. If a young

Brethren in the ministry, I am

is not only to eat hugely of this

What a beautiful parable this in

the manifold blessings of God's

nineteenth Psalm, David pronoun pronounces

which the poor blind boy had after
the operation of a skillful oculist.
His mother led him out-of doors,
and, taking eff the bandage, gave
him his first view of sunshine and
sky and flowers. "Oh, mother,"
he exclaimed, "why did you not
tell me it was so beautiful?" The
tears started as she replied: "I
tried to tell you, my dear, but you
could not understand me." So the
spiritual eyesight must be opened
in order that the spiritual beauty
and wisdom and glory of the divine
word may be discerned. Many a
poor sinner has never found out
what a glorious gospel our gospel

I was sadly perplexed about the
question ot changing my field of

single text of scripture instantly
