Over that ocean we are sailing; but the only

look backwards and watch the ship's wake in
the waters; but how short a distance it
reaches, and how soon every trace disappears !
We see also some landmarks further off, and
then the horizon closes the view ; but beyond,
that ocean still rolls far, far away. Memory
contemplates the few years of our individual
life; history shows us a dim outline of moun
tains ; science tells us that further back, out
of sight," stretches that vast sea; reason as
sures us that, like space, it hath no boundry ;

Lip The Christian at Work preaches this
pertinent sermon :
We have plenty of stale, insipid, lethargic,
half-and-half religious life. The church needs
more caloric. The stove must have the
damper open, and the grate shaken ; and the
dull heap of darkness must become a bright
illumination. Let us begin by more earnest
ness in Bible reading. What is the Bible?
It is a prescription for the worst of illness.
Suppose you had been sick for years and
vears, and all medical treatment had failed
in your case, and some skillful one should
come along and examine the symptoms of
your disease and write a prescription,"saying :
“ I go by the next steamer into a far country ;
you will never see me again; do not lose
that prescription. lam sure if you take the
medicine there prescribed you will get well.”
How you would hold on to that prescription.
You would say : “ Everything depends up
on mv getting that prescription before the
apothecary in the right shape, and my getting
the right medicine.” We are stricken by the
leprosy of sin. The world comes tries
with its pleasures and honors to heal us ; but
it has always failed. Here is a divine pre
scription. Take it, and live; refuse it, and
die. llow we ought to hold on to it, and with
what earnestness we ought to take it. It is
more than that. Suppose a captain is awak
ened in the nigftt. The men who have had
the management of the ship have been asleep
and not minding their business. The vessel
is among the breakers. The captain comes
on deck with the chart. With what earnest
ness he looks at; it now. Here is a rock and
there is a rock ; there is a lighthouse ; here
is a way of escape. So here is a map setting
forth tlie perils of the sea in which w r e are
voyaging ; there are dangers all about us.—
If the following of the chart does not get us
out of the breakers nothing will. With what,
earnestness Ive ought to examine it, and feel
that it is a matter of heaven or hell whether
or not we read it, and whether we read it
right or wrong. >
UiPSpeaking on the very important, but
often violated, principles of “dealing honest
ly/' the Re formed Era says :
“ Standards of honesty are held according
to the sense of a community. A man may be
wanting in nice distinctions of untarnished
integrity because he has been wrongly train
ed. In these days of political corruption im
proper things are allowed and done by men
who would scorn to be guilty of the least
wrong. So many people defraud the Govern
ment and deceive other people that it has be
come popular to cheat in a political sense, if
only men can thrive thereby. Communities
are debauched in their standard of right deal
ing. Thus some think it all perfectly within
the lines of right dealing to cheat a railroad
company. And yet they would not dare to
take the same advantage of a neighbor. Oth
ers will pay promptly the cash for a railroad
ticket, and expect their neighbor, the store
keeper, to wait an indefinite time for his pay.
Some places do business habitually on the
credit system. To expect cash or short set-
is thought to be an unreasonable
Co/ig regaliomil Ist remarks : “We
fail to see the fitness of the conventionality
that restricts the conduct of fnneral services
to ministers. Undoubtedly it is every way
wiser and better that ministers should per
form the office where it is possible; but wo
know of no reason why a layman should not
serve, on occasion. With a pastor away, we
do not see why, in many families, the voice
of a lay brother of the church, known, trusted
and beloved, might not be quite as edifying
and acceptable at the burial of the dead, as
that of the comparatively strange pastor of
another church. Let it never be forgotten
that the ministry is not a priesthood. In any
case, is there not room for a little more free
dom and flexibility in our funeral customs ?”
