There is constant reference in the Acts of the Apostles to his presence and indwelling with the disc!;-I s. Stephen is described as being full of the Holy Ghost at the time of his martyrdom, but it was nu new exp* ri- nee or enrichment, for the evangelist when lie records his appointment as a deacon characterizes him as a man “full of faith and the Holy Ghost.” If, in his la.'t hours, Stephen gave token of 'pi ritual calm and energy it was because there had been iii his previous life a surrender of himself to the teaching'5 of the Divine Spirit, and a rmdizati'-n of the comfort he can bestow. The gr**at trials which may come to a Christian can only be success fully encountered as he is under the guidance and enjoying tile ministries of the Holy Ghost.—Christian In-! qui mr.

In the matter of age you hold ove r Us—decidedly. And this shows in nearly all your works. You are an awfully solid people— the solidest people I have any acquaintance with. I am told, and I believe it, that it has been shown by many tests that IOO Englishman weigh as much as lot Yankees or in* l-'reri, ' aum. Your clima • is favorable to meat, while ours tends to create nervous activity, and even in England I find abundant proofs that Americans are far from sin v. For instance, that America invention the air brake is yours by adoption.

They cannot afford to lie intemperate-—their climate and social system will scourge them into the higher life or od the face of tlie earth. Their present ideals are temporary; a grossly material people they cannot remain. They are set in their present land to bring ut the higher lite, and it they tail or refuse, their corruption and decay w ill be tenfold worse than the wurst that is w ritten of Greek or Roman. Tuou.sniid- of years ago In i.» raised and argued all the questions now distracting the west—the origin of man, his relations to the first cause, the nature and destiny of the soul India pushed the discussion tar beyond the point it has now reached in England, and decided, as some ut ours hue lately <h - i id, that concern tug a Ci-'-i and his dealings with man nothing whatever can certainly he known. America is lo argue these great questions once more and for tin* last time, for she will obtain t ne t rue light and the solution that will fill!', satisfy the world.” I am very much obliged to this Bombay gentleman t o t ne brilliant destiny he has named for my country, but I couldn’t help agreeing with the next speaker, from Mel bourne, who thought that some things would always remain just a little beyond tis, and intimated ti at Englishmen who live h- _ in india often get inoculated with eld ll:ud«*o fancies. He was very posit iv e ti. Vast ralia was the land of the future, ti; • true home of the soul,and ridiculed the urrent notion that the English race will lose vigor there. “Why, the mer cury in - ii- [dace has never been above 112 iu the shad (.'amula did not put up a speaker, r we should doubtless have heard that bo I w zero is only fine, bracing w cat her.

For the last JOO or 300 years there has been much speculation among scientific men as j-i th** exact cause of the phe-nonieu’n -f urthqu ikes, which has in-cidentaliv added new interest to the query How thick is the earth’s crust? In di«Missing the earthquake problem different schools <ff scientists liaxe taken d, Tcrent views of the matter, oho branch of them supposing tho “quake” to be the result of an effort of the great internal heat to escape through a weak portion of* the earth's crust; the others declare that it is caused by shrinkage of the outer strata on account of the cooling process going on deep down in the bowels of the earth. Al Tout ten or twelve years ago the German government made a gigantic effort to settle this perplexing question for all time to come by sinking a shaft near the city of Schladebach, with the object especially of obtaining trustworthy data concerning the rate of increase of the earth's temperature with each succeeding IOO or fraction of IOO feet of descent. At last accounts the shaft had reached a depth of 1.392 meters, which is believed to be the greatest depth to which man has vet [v'uetrated the substratum o» the globe. The tenqierature of the shaft at the 1.390 meter level was 4S degs. centigrade, or 120 Fahrenheit. If this percentage of increa.se is maintained the boiling point of water will be reached at about 3,OOO meters, and at 4o miles the would be sufficient to melt any Known substance. —St. Louis Republic.
