Poor fellow!-Repuolic--- , r The ajapiisui ol The Holy Uliost- We must recur here to a case which came under our observation years 3go "among the annals of the poor." A woman in poor health, poor in this world's goods pressed down with the care of a large family, with the merest "uame to live" in the church, and, when moving about amid her domestic cares, had theie specific reflections one day pass with wonderful impressive noss through, her mind: "I sh,aU die soon and stand in the presence of God. I do not desire to mcpt my God there on a short-or-slight acquaintance. I desire to know him fully by that time. From this moment it shall be my sepreme pbjepb to know God, understand his way, and find "race in his sight." Without relaxation of fidelity to family duty, she set her whole heart upon knowing and walking with God. When about her daily cares she would hare*her Bible open upo a shelf so that as sh-3 passed aroun shy could stop a moment and read passage, and then make it the ku ject of meditation and.prayer.
