bearer for Christand that long period his
character, both private and oAoial, was unstain,

Of commanding presence and deportment, he
was wherever seen a model specimen of the dig.
unified Christian minister. The purity and con.
sistency of his private life imparted a momen.
tum to his pulpit ministrations which secured
for him a distinguished measure of necess in

rough and tumble of this world's affairs, if we
allow Church finances depend upon mere
hap-hazard donations, or a sually solicited con-
tributions, they will be apt to be miserably ne-
looted, and fall far short of any standard what-
ver. To accomplish anything of consequence
we must needs have a plan and carry it out,
If it is very desirable to have the monetary
matters of our circuits and stations move smooth_
ly and meet all the demands-let us consider
how to proceed, and then bravely proceed tone-
complish it. Hear a plan suggested by an ex.
rienced steward, and modified by a pastor of

First, e e Board of Stewards make .
proper assessment to the pastor, presiding elder,
and general Church expenses. This amount

Be of Good Comfort-
Religion was designed to make man happy
Its very nature is such that when its graces
adorn and its spirit permeates the human soul,
peace-" the peace of God that passeth all un-
derstanding"-keeps the mind and heart. It
does not remove the dilBoulties of life; it does
not exempt its votaries from affliction, pain, sor-
row and death but it gives the comfort that
springs from conscious security in dangers, and
triumphs over diBiculty and evil in every form.
Faith-trustinGod-while it underliesallother
graces, giving strength to Christian character,
sheds light over heart and mind; a light whose
radiance is neverdinued by cloud or storm, and


raw a e ep on a olo g

We may not always stand with Moses on
Pisgah and look out with rapturous gaze upon
the fair land of our heavenly Canaan; but we
may always see the "pillarof cloudy day and
fire by night," which assures us of the Divine
presence, and feel that wI. 1 .1 ... ir 1
presence" leads us, it is w 'i-
at once our glorious privilege and unquestiona-
ble duty-" Rejoice in the Lord alway, and
again 1 say rejoice," and in order to do this:
" Trust ye in the Lord for ever"; for he will
" keep him in perfect peace whose mind is staid
on" Him; because hetrusteth in Him."
We live in troublous times. Thousands are
despondent, many despairing, from the state of
our country. Itis indeedin a fearful condition.

Follow the example of good old trusting Job,
whose faith was such, that he said: thoughhe
slay me, yet will I trust him." Only thus can
you "be of good comfort." Only through a
constant, unwavering reliance upon the At
mighty Father," can you "regoneexnhim alway.
Remember, too, that the Joy of the Lord as
thy strength." The happy Christian is strong
-to work, to suffer, to do and bear for Christ;
the despondent never succeed. O, then, my
brother! be trustful, be happy!

The Cleansing Blood.
A visitor among the poor was one day climb-
ing the broken staircase which led to a rret in
one of the worst parts of London, who his at.
tendon was arrested by a man of peculiarly
ferocious and repulsive countenance, who stood
upon the landing-place,1eaning with folded arms
against the wall. There was something about
the man's appearance which made the visitor
shudder, and his first impulse was to go back,
He made an efort, however, to get into cover,
station with him, and told him that he came
there with the desire to do him good and to see
him happy, and that the book he held in his
hand contained the secret of all b iness,
The ruffian shook him of as if he haThpeen a
viper, and bade him begone with his nonsense,
or he would kick him down-stairs. While the
visitor was endeavoring with gentleness and pa
