Christ's Sympathy for the Poor. it is, 1 think, a matter lor very The Son of God appears to have deep regret that this is not an age in which Christian people want to be felt an especial sympathy for the edified. It is an age in which they poor. Some of his most tender words their cars tickled, ant delight to have a inn Itipii'citv ofanec. dotes and of exciting matter, "hut they little care to be well instructed in the sound and solid doctrines of the grace of God. In the old Puritanic times sermons must have been tiresome to s the thoughtless, but should think they are more tiresome to the thoughtful. The Christian of those davs wanted to know a great deal of the things of God; and pro vided that the preacher could open up some point of Christian practice to make him holier and wiser, he was well satisfied, though the man might be no orator, and might lead him into no fields of novel speculation. Chris tians then did not want a new faith but, navi ng received the old iaitn, they wished to lie well rooted and ground ed in it, and therefore sought daih for illumination, as well as for quickening; they desired not only to have ine emotions excited, out also to have the intellect richly stored with divine truth; and there must be much of this in every church, if it is built up. Hk3-t&--tH- lV0 now-a-day- Hpuryeon Jesus Praying. it was necessary for the sinless If Jesus to spend whole nights in prayer, how much greater is the necessity in cir case? What a silent rebuke is tuere, in the example of Jesus, for those Christians who never or seldom pray. Jesus was perfectly, free from sin, he never knew the burden of a guilty conscience. Thero was a delightful harmony between his will and that of the Father. No sinful thought ever stained the pure mirror of his soul. Yet it was necessary for him to pray. He could not live without prayer. It was his habit to sin ud much time m vnvi-rUc w ent apart from tie i in order to hold communion Father in heaven. The 1tas his closet. l'iic to pass in those davs 1rut into a mountain to inued all night in pray- . 1 us and the midnight nir .e fervor of his prayer. Jesus praying! All night in prayer! Let the pra3'erless Christian come here and learn a lesson from his Master. If it was necessary for Jesus lo go to his Father for strength, how can we hope to succeed if we neglect to pray? We arc surrounded by powerful spiritual enemies, temptations arise at every hand, our own hearts are like tinder waiting for the spark to set them on fire our own conscience condemn us, and oftentimes we would rather getaway from God than enter into his presence. Is there not an absolute necessity for prayer? If Jesus could not live without prayer, neither can we. Prayer is a duty and a privilege, but a necessity as well. Prayer is the breath of the Christian life ; we cease to live when we cease to pray. Prayer opens heaven and brings down blessings upon our souls. "Pray moves the arm that moves the world." Jesus praying! Can you be his disciple if you have no closet! You ; of consolation were expressly intend ed for them. "Behold the fowls of the air; for they sow not. neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedelh them. A re ye not much belter than they?" "Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." The rich were not shut out; Nicode-muthe ruler was received; the offerings of the wise men of the Kast were accepted. But let us not forget that it was emphatically to the poor that the blessed gospel was preached. Poverty sull'ered in fellowship with the Son of God, and solaced by his sympathy, has a lustre greater than that which sparkles from diadems of kings. The pious Lazarus is comforted not only when borne to Abraham's bosom, but when lying in rags at the gate, seeking crumbs from the rich man's table. His crust may be sweetened wiui rellecfions such as these: "Am I poor? so was Lord. Am I hungry? so was my Lord. Am homeless? the Son of Man had not wnere to lay ins head. Niall not the disciple be as his Lord, and the serv ant as his great Master?" A. L. O. K s 1113- - Some 3'oung ministers have been greai- - injured oy talcing up their creed from a sort of second or third rate writer. Toplady, perhaps, litis said that he has found his preaching most successful when it litis turned on the grand doctrines of Calvinism. A man admires Toplady, and adopts the same notion concerning his own ministry. But let him turn to a master on this subject. He will find such a man as Traill handling the sovereignty of God, and such high points of doctrine, with a lioly and heavenly sweetness; which, while it renders it almost impossible not to receive his sentiments, leaves nothing on the mind but a religious savor. Hiehard Cecil. Simeon on Transubstantiation. . One of the papers publishes from "I Recollections of Simeon," the following anecdote, which 'bears hard upon the folly of transubstantiation. "When Wolsey and Erasmus disputed on this point fan essential change in the elements.)

It is to give our souls to him to be saved, because there is no one else who can save us. A little story will hell) to make this plain to you. A family lived in a bouse which stood near to a wood.- On a dark night the" went to bed. The wind blew anion the tall trees, and largo black clouds passed over the full moon. While were asleep, a tire broke out in tine of the rooms of the house. The father soon heard the loud cry of "Fire!" At first he did not know what it meant; but the cry was louder and louder. And soon there were many people, who cried, "Your house is on hre, get up, and comedown. I hen they knocked hard at the door. Th fattier now sprang from his bed, and great was his alarm when he found his own house hi flames! He ran again to his room, and awoke his wife Then he took the babe, and they got out at a back door. His eldest bttl anboy, about ten years old, was other part of the house, near to the room where the maid slept. The father cried. "Oh, what shall I do to save my poor boy ?" lie did not care about his goods: Ins dear son was ail he thought anoui. 111 made his way to that part of the house and met the maid Hying Irom the flames. "Where is Charles?" cried the father. "He is in his room," said the girl, in her alarm she had come away, and forgot to bring the chil with Iter. And now the stairs were 111 in flames. The wind blew on the fire, am made it burn wildly The doors and the roof were ail red and burning In a short time poor Uharles was seen at one of the windows. "Oh father dear father," he cried, "how shall get out?" He could be seen by the lire in the room, but the thick black smoke kept liin'i from seeing the peo pie below. L u t he heard their voices and he cried, "Oh, stive me !" "Here I am, my son," said the falh er, and he held out his arms lor Uharles to jump into them. "Here I am don't fear. Drop down, and I will bi sure to catch you." Charles crept out of the window but hung fast by it. He knew it was very high from the gound, and he was afraid to let go. "Drop down, my dear boy, criei the father. "Oh, I can't see you, my dear, dear father !" "But I am here. You can trust mc I will save you." "I am afraid, father, I shall fall. "Let go, and don't fear," cried the people; "your father will be sure to catch you." And now Charles felt the flamei He was certain that if he hung ther he should be burnt. lie knew that his father was strong, that he lovei him, and that be was waiting to sav him. Then be drew in his breatl let go his hold, and in a moment he was in his father's arms. Charles was saved from the fire, .ami there was great joy among all the people who saw the sight. As you read this true story, did you not see how great was the danger of little Charles? There was only one xy for him lobe saved from the fire. I To could not see his father, blithe heard his voice. He knew that his father loved him, and wished to save him. Then he felt quite sure that his lather would save him. So he fell into his arms and was saved. Do you not know that every child is in danger of being lost forever? It is the loss of both soul and body. And why? Sin has brought us into danger. How glad we should be that there is a way made known to us in the Bible in which we can be saved Jesus saw our sad state, and iie "came into the world to seek and to save that which was lost." And to save us he But now he is in died on the cross. heaven. Though we cannot see him, be seen tis. And in his I10I3' word he says,that he is able and willing to save till who go to him by faith. It is as if his arms were wide open, as f heparins' of the lather were when Charles fell Into them. He tells us to come to him, and be happy, lie waits to save us. He speaks' to you now; will you not hear bis voice, and trust and love him ? A little girl was once asked why she loved the Bible. She said, "Be cause it tells me that Jesus Christ died to save sinners."
