Weare told that “not oui}'should the verv best men iii the Christian ministry be sent to -neb countries as India, but before going even they should undergo along course of special training in order to tit them for their difficult and delicate York.” Now this is just what the Christian church has done. It has sent out mane of its very best men to man its foreign mission fields. \\ e are encompassed ain att with a great cloud of witnesses. Scotland, England. Ireland, the United State.- and other countries have sent to heathen lands some of their most cultivated aud cultured men—men of the profoundest learning, as well as of the most burning zeal. They have had all ‘he training that could lie given them at home, and they have gone out feeding that they had much to learn, and have studied the heathen where alone the heathen can be properly studied—on his native soil aud amid his native surroundings.

Paul in his S-cond Lpistle to Timothy tells him that Jesus Christ, by his “appearing" in our world as a saviour, “hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gosjH-l*’ (ll Tim. i, IO), it is said in the Epistle to the Hebrews that “forasmuch then as tie1 children are partakers of flesh and Mood, he (Christ) also himself Ii k»-w Do took part of the same, that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is the devil, and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage" (Deb. ii, 14, 15*. These pas>ages contained good news for humanity. Death has b*-*-n styled “the king of terrors.” No merely physical event in our earthly it!story is so terrible as that of death. Lu what sense, then, and to what extent is it true that Christ, by Ins “appearing” and “through death,” has “abolished death” and also delivered “them who through fear of death were ill their lifetime subject to bondage?” Christ himself, in dying as a man, in rising from the dead, and in ascending in his humanity into heaven, is a living illustration and practical demonstration of the Dict t hat death is not the absolute extinction of humanity. He survived this event, as to Ins entire humanity, including body and soul, and lived afterward, and is “still living. The fact of immortality, notwithstanding his own death is stamped upon the human elements of his history. It is true that he bowed his head in death on the cross, but it was only to live again as the risen and ascended Jesus, and as the triumphant conqueror over death ami the grav e. The hands of death did not and could not hold him. and did not and could not extinguish him.    .    , The gospel of Christ to which Paid refers as the medium through vvhith life and immortality are brought to light declares that what was true of him. in his survival of death, is and wiU tie true of all his people. He conquered death for himself an,! for he Ii vee *o will they also live rn'irtue of the union between him and them.

Thinking she had not spoken plainly, she again pointed out tin* direction more distinctly arni strolled on. At the third corner she one** more lin t the sailor, who breathlessly put the thrice rebated query. This time the young lady said in surprise: “AV ny, I have twice answered that question. Did you not mnl-rstand?” “Oh, yes, miss, I understood,” he answered, “lait I would run round a block all day if I could see your pr< try face at the corner.” He had made the circuit of three sides of the square while she had walked ore*, merely in order to gaze again on her loveliness. The beautiful Elizabeth Patterson, of Baltimore, who married Jerome Bona parte, the brother of the great Napoleon, must have been a radiant young creature at the time of her wedding She was a veritable “daughter of th** gods. divinely tail and most divinely fair.” Her hair was chestnut, her eyes hazel, ii -r complext iii cream tinted. H*-r figure was perfect, and all the graceful outlines were plainly disclosed by the costum of that day. The extreme of the em undress was then worn, short of waist, with skirt reaching only to the ankle, and so scant that there was just room to step ui it. Her wedding dress was of thinnest India gauze, heavily embroidered. Entirely without starch, it clung to ev- ry curve of her exquisite young form, as the underclothing was of tile scantiest description, consisting, it was sui I. o? only one long garment of midi.

I 8)0 let us think of the beautiful girl -as lovely a vision on her wedding morn is has greeted mortal eves since the david Diana—remembering her thus rather than as the deserted wife, whose long “I don't know, uni so g<sal natured.” This was probably the explanation of the mystery.
