It, is an old and a very simple.tale about life in Aberdeen—a tale that is, nearly line for line, being repeated every day in the town. If perchance the history of the life of the poor should ever come to be written out in full, it will contain numerous passages such as the one I am about to write, and will reveal much that, to the majority, now remains a secret. " John Dickson was A deceint tradesman. He had risen, early and worked late, and industry had fayored bis hand. . He had tifepughts, once of starting on a small scale • oft Ms own hook, aAnMc/l) 'hlititsi project ritea- mained constantly uppermost in his mind during early manhood. But when the fatnily came his slender earnings were all required, ari<fc^tfbwteflted himself with drawing a weekly wage. •. "A.ifter a', John, man, it's mayfie' better," his good wife would say, .consoling him, "for there's a hfiritlt* nl^ Jsvorry in the heart and head a mas%r than that o' a man.;. We may haetae%ef jimpey, bit a mfc^ cle&rio' cate after sa3t o'clock is worth a fceap o' luixuSy, I tell fe.'r "Deed, an' thoom langer on the subject." And John was as good as his word. When John Dickson and his wife had been twelve years married they had two sons and a daughter—May—as bonny a slip of infancy as ever graced a home. But she and her younger brother were taken away very early. Fever broke out in the town and swept young and old before it into eternity. The humbler quarters suffered most, and the disease took a firm grip of the Gallowgate, where John Dickson lived. The day that the funeral procession left the house two deep wounds were made in the parents'* hearts, wounds that refused to heal. "Read me the deaths, John," Mrs. Dickson would say, as her husband would take up the paper of an evening; for since she knew how cruel death could be, she had read that column regularly just that the sympathy of her heart might be stirred for those who mourned the departure of dear ones. v John did not do so at once. He would read aloud some casual paragraph and then turn furtively to the desired column. If he noted in it the death of any boy or girl he held his peace, for he knew the pain that such announcements gave his better half. The remaining boy was the pride of his mother's heart, the apple of his father's eye. He received what education his parents could give him, and was then taken into the building yard where his father worked. ., The lad took his lesson well with him,* and before his time was served he was acknowledged to be as tidy a worker as there was about the place. When he persisted in bis determination to go abroad.- John Dickson wrote to a brother of his who was in a good way in St. Petersburg, and soon a reply came that he would be glad to see his nephew there as soon as he could come, for trade was brisk, and tradesmen were making good money. So the city of the Czar claimed young Dickson. , The old folk in the Gallowgate, now left alone, with a growing weight of frailty on them, looked forward fondly to the time wfien Alick woul,d return in five years & see them. His letters arrived regularly, and at the end of every quarter there came with them an enclosure for his parents—an enclosure which; doubled at birthdays and Ne# Year tame. Nearly three years had gone when news of importance came from the son. It Was to the effect that his uncle, an old bachelor, in -whose big building, yard Alick was foreman; had died and left everything to his nephew. "Now, father and mother, rap the letter, "I want both of you to leave 'the Gallowgate and settle down in noise, and where ybu can breathe clean air always. -It isjjrigh time, too, that you father, Had retired from the building for your strength has failed you; and you shall both, for I'm now in a position to keep mother and you 'like birds on a brod.' I leave you to see to the flitting as soon as possible." So the old couple shifted from the Gallowgate and betook themselves to a more retired part of the city. Hardly had they settled in the new abode than evil days set in. Weeks merged into months, and they received never a line from their son. The suspense was terrible. It tore out the heart of the mother, and almost broke the father's in two. Every morning brought some fresh flickering hope that news might come; every night the hope was snuffed out as the light of a candle would be by a bitter night-wind. Through all the winter the old pair—keeping their great grief from the world—struggled on. Thrice a day for months had old Dickson lingered around the post-office and caught the postman for his street, as be went put on bis rounds. - . , "Any foreign letter?" the old man would say, vehemently, as with a nervous clutch he seized the postman's arm. "None;" That w;as the depressing answer that had come a hundred times and drove something akin to a bullet through the old man's brain. Then he would wend his weary way home to say— "No word the day yet. It may come the morn, wifie, so dinna greet that gate. Come, come, we canna lose patience. There's luck in odd numbers. ^ ^There's seven times noo I've written him—seven times—an' I'se warrant he'll answer that last one for certain." But no answer came. The silence was worse to both of them than death. That, indeed, would have been a relief, for the money they had saved had gone in reluctant driblets till the last pound'had been expended and poverty stared them full in the. face. Just then John Dickson became a changed man.-,All memory seemed to go from him. He did not realize the position they were placed in. Every day thrice he journeyed to the post-office and shuffled back again with no news. Mrs. Dickson observed the change with a sinking at her heart, saw that a sponge, dipped deep in the: gall of bitterness, had wiped out the past from the tablets of her husband's memory, leaving nothing but a smudge behind. , Singly she had to bear' a grief that had already proved too Jw two. - - Their poverty was extreme* It constant dread that hide it. On a lame pretext of not room for them she sold first one- stick ol furniture and then another. of all this struggle for bread the due and could not be paid. The was indulgent for a time, but at i ginrtng of a bitter January new tenant and gave the :old cf"' *' or, as iie said even more plainly ''JFear not them which kill the twenty-four,hours to - ever be. To the right and left, before and behind, Mrs. Dickson saw only the inky clouds of poverty and disgrace looming around. Then her poor perplexed brain swirled and she felt a desire for death take hold on her. When John Dickson returned from the post-office that afternoon she told him of the landlord's visit and of the warning they had got. But lie did not understand. He kissed his wife tenderly, and, pacing the room vacantly, said— "There's nae doot o't, mither, nae doot we'll hear the morn—the morn!" Mrs. Dickson rose in the middle of the night and lighted the candle. Without the snow swirled, and the wind moaned cold , and drear. She rose with a dark purpose at her heart, for that strange ffeeling had possessed her again. She lighted a spunk of fire and roused her husband. ' 'Come, John, •' she said; ' 'come awa'; we're goin' tae far Alick is. Come, it's lang time we had startit!" The old man sat up dazed. He did not realize the.terrible meaning of his wife's words. rS' • > "Dinna fash, lassie," he said, "an' dinna greet—we'll hae news the day—the day." • But, obedient as a child, he rose and dressed. Mrs. Dickson went to. the little room off the kitchen aind took from the bottom drawer her best gown. ||g- "It'll be mair respectable," she said, "mair respectable tae dee in silk than in a cotton hap! The water o'the dook'll droolsle them sair, bit we winna ken and winnacare!" When they were bbtK*readyvshe"tcK)k up the candle and"'went to the door to draw the bolt. But as her fingers touched it there was a loud rapping from without. "Wha's there?" she quavered, the can-dle nearly "It's me, mother, me,cried Alick's voice above the windv . ' 'Open the door arid let me in!" / The candle fell t6 wie floor, and all was dark. Tremblingly Mrs. Dickson, undid t^e bolt and next moment she was locked in her son's embrace. "Why V :but her Bobs would not allow her tp say more. , 'Tve been a prisoner in Siberia these many months," said the young fellow,the tears glistening on his face aa the faint rays otthe mtfon struggled in at the open door.: 'It ia a long Btory.

"After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also and sent them two and two before His face into every city and place, whither He Himself would come." Again, as on former occasions, we choose without hesitation the missionary lesson, believing that the great business of every saved soul is to live to make known tho love of God to sinners as far as possible and as quickly as possible, throughout the whole world, thus helping to answer our continual prayer, "Thy kingdom come!" For the time of the kingdom when the will of God shall be done on earth as in Heaven cannot come until the King shall return, as may be clearly seen from the portion following last week's lesson (Luke xix, 11, 12). Jesus had previously sent out the 12, suggestive of a sufficient testimony for the 12 tribes of Israel. Now He sends 70, suggestive of a sufficient testimony for all the world, for the nations which peopled the earth after the deluge were 70, as in Gen. x, and the church, which is His body, to be completed before the national salvation of Israel, is to he gathered from all nations. The Lord appointed theso messengers, and unless He appoints the messengers always they will run in vain. 2.."Therefore said He unto them: The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth laborers into His harvest." Compare John iv, 35, Where He said on another occasion that the fields were white to the harvest. In this verse of our lesson the great need is laborers, and we are to pray the Lord to send them forth, which implies a readiness to be sent ourselves, for the 12 (Math, ix, 37, 38) as well as the 70, who were taught to pray thus, were all sent forth themselves. What an indescribable honor to be privileged to be a laborer with God (I Cor. iii, 9), yet what multitudes of saved people, at least of professing Christians, seem to think that salvation means that they are saved from hell and made sure of heaven, and that is all. The thought of laboring with God to save others does not enter their minds. 3. "Go your ways. Behold I send you forth as lambs among wolves." So He said also to the 12 (Math, x, 16). Observe the words "I send you" and compare John xx, 21; xyii, 18, with Jer. i, 7, 8, and let every believer appropriate tho meg. sage to Jeremiah along with Ex. iv, 12, and say with Isaiah, "Here am I; send mo" (Isa. vi, 8). Notice the realities to Which He calls their attention, "Lambs among wolves," plainly telling them what to expect,.He to the 12, body" (Math, x, 28). The night before Ho was crucified He told them that they would be put out of the synagogue and even slain for His name's sake, . 4, V' Carry, neither purse nor sorij ffioes^ i^d ii^ute no mail by t!' are faithful to Him'He wttl' see tts He said and Is still.sayiBg iii : 88, that if we make His kingdom and-righteousness our first concern He will see" that we have food and raiment. Neither are we to give time and- thought to the fashionable formalities of life, but let dead people see to dead things (Luko ix, 60). Let the dead in sins give their time to the things that are not of God, but let those who havo life in Christ be wholly for Him and the things of His kingdom. 6. "And into whatsoever house ye enter first say, Peace be to this house." He who sent them was the Prince of Peace (Isa. ix, 6). When He came as a babe in Bethlehem, the angels sang, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace" (Luke ii, 14). When He stood in the midst of them the first night after the resurrection, His greeting was "peace be unto you" (Luke xxiv, 86), and His last gift to them before He die'd was His peace (John xiv, 27). 6. "And if the Son of peace be there your peace shall rest upon it; if not, it shall turn to you again." Jesus has made peace through the blood of His cross, and ali who are far off and without God and hope may be made nigh through Him who Is ready and willing to be their peace (Col. i, 20; Eph. ii, 13, 14). It is the high privilege of every boliever to go forth in His name or send forth, preaching peace by Jesus Christ and proclaiming in His name the forgiveness of sins to all who will receive Him (Acts x, 36; xiii, 38, 89). It is Ours to make the proclamation; it is His to see to the results. The preachers will be unto God a sweet savor of Christ, in them that are saved and in them that perish (II Cor. ii, 15). We can offer Christ to all; that is our part. God will out of those who are called complete the body of Christ. 7. "And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his. hire. Go npt from house to house." It is all right to go from house to house preaching the word as Paul did (Acts xx, 20),- but it is not the mind of Christ to roam from house to house for the sake of eating and drinking, for "the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost" (Rom. xiv, 17). Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God (Luke iv,. 4), and it is possible to esteem the words of His mouth more than our daily food.(Job xxiii, 12). John the Baptist was content with locusts and wild. honey, and when the food of Jesus Himself is mentioned we read only of bread and fish and honeycomb. 8. "And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you." No such thing as asking help from those who will hot receive you. What a strange sight it is! I might safely say, what a monstrous thing, what a dishonor to God, to see the children of God going to those who are the enemies of God for help to carry on the work of God! 9. " And heal the siek that are therein and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you." Instead of going as beggars, they.were to go asroyal givers, giving health and peace and joy to all who were willing to receive them. God gave His Son; the Son gave Himself; both have given the spirit; the Trinity give us all things richly to enjoy and commission us to go in th§ mighty name of Jesus and be the almoneriof their bounties to all whom we can reaoh, not asking glfts from men, but bestowing the riches of God's grace upon all men. While Jesus was personally en earth the kingdom ^ws nighi even in the midst of them in the person of the King, but rejeoting Him they have delayed th«rkingdom. POWDER Absolutely Pure.

' 'Things that can be had for little or nothing are generally worth nothing." In a commercial sense that may be true, but grasping after a reward too soon has defeated many a man. He often has an idea that he can do good work and should receive good pay, when the truth is, he is not yet through with his apprenticeship. The surest test of real fitness for a calling or pursuit is the way many a man will toil on for years amid hardships and disappointments, never thinking of himself, but only of his work, and it is such work, and only 6Uoh work that will make a man immortal. There is not a battle ever fought and won except by a man ready to cast aside his all— even life—if he can but taste victory. That spirit which proclaims "I will only give as I receive," defeats itself. I have no doubt Prof. Swing counseled and cheered and helped people quite as much when he was preaching for $500 a year, as he did when he was getting §10,000. Suppose he had said, "I am only getting $500 a year, therefore I will only preach §500 sermons." Would he ever have become known to the world? Would he be mourned to-day by thousands? No doubt Henry Ward Beeclier knew his own power when he was struggling with poverty—he must have felt even then the tiery force and eloquence that could bend a multitude as a storm does the tree-tops, but he did notturn his back upon his church and say, "If they will not pay better for my ideas they shall not have them." ; . :- >s£ Noi*he preaehed forth the best he had, -fought; of the.srojsdlness-gf the KpoOkwie-! When 'oife .'drops off to ^leep some" senses become dormant before others. The eyes close, and the sense of seeing is at rest. It is quickly followed by the Hisappearanee of the sense of taste. TIIH senses of smell and sound go next, and of feeling last, and in some hypersensitive people it is hardly ever dormant. Even in their case, however, there is no discriminating power or sense of what touched them. This sense is also the first to return upon awakening. Then hearing follows suit, and after that taste, and then the eye becomes able to flash impressions back to the brain. The sense of smell, oddly enough, thoOgli it is by no means the first to go, is the last to come back. The same gradual loss of power is observed in the muscles and sinews as well as in the senses. Slumber begins at the feet and slowly spreads up the limbs and trunk until it reaches the brain, when unconsciousness is complete and the whole body is at rest. This is why sleep is impossible when the feet are cold. TAXES.
