This opened' my ejes to the fact that the �lultliea not so much in the people as in the church's methods in dealing with them.

Their aensi-bilities were profoundly stirred, but they guve no outward signs but tears and sobs. They sat and listened and wept, and when I asKed those who accepted the Lord, who had been seeidng him, to stand, they rose en Miis.n' with tears in every eye. We made another test of their appreciation-we tooK a Collection, and, while I have made many collections-I never saw one such as that before. Nearly every one gave. Hen in their shirt sleeves tgxd bare-footed women came weeping, to lay their mpney on the table. The gospel has done wonders for th'pse poor peoples When we thinK that with-, in a hundred miles of them is a tribe \n whose language are no words for. "religion" and "love," and then Iook at the intelligent devotion of these, we cannot help saying that if it had cost ten times the money, it would have been fully jijs-tlfled. But we cannot help thinking how much, more might have been accomplished. The Indian shows most eyident signs of capacity in head and heart for Christian development and eyen independence. Wise church work looks far beyond the mere salvation of individuals, it is > far sighted and works for the distant future. Herein is seen^ the wisdom of those who took the Gospsl to the Sandwich and Fiji Islands. They taught them sel f support and aggressive work for other^. Ihave no doubt that this work has suffered for want of the coiitinuoua oversight of one bishop. The onerous duties upon pur general overseersv leave little oppprtuatty for them to know the work in one, or two visits, such as they must make in a year of Episcopal oversight. It takes time to know the condition and needs of the work. It lies away off the railroad lines and can only be reached by tedious travel. And it takes much more time to settle upon and successfully inaugurate a policy suited to these needs. I am glad to learn that the charge of this work has been permanently ccinmitted to Bishop Hendrii. We may justly expect large results. The Indian Missiqn Conference need$ men-good men. They have such, but they need more. Such are nnV more needed in any part of the church. It ia I scrioua noiatakobinpoae that men will answer for that work who ciw be easily pared from other ptacei. They need the wisest and the best; and I know no fleld' mere inviting for such as have a pity for d}.!t>g miitt and a pastioQ for aaviog touli. tiiiiatlbMtt training soU men. la the mlniatry, as the church; and the Oo have richest blessingi in who wisely conseorftte work. Inthe annalif of are no memoi^es more of the Godly men Who lives to it. There are n0 doing more apostolic faithful ones who are that field. Another indication whii is that the Indians the ing'for white preachers, ing out for help above them.

Think of the multltudloai principles,'as well as anomalies, of gram m&r to be famlU&rizsd and memo:'z~d thethousandiof wards, the meaaicgs o* which have to be acquired by the form ation and executfon of a deliberate purpose on part of the mind; the endlMS process of manipulation required in turning over, and over again, the teaming pages of the ponderous lexicon in search for verbal definitions. Nor could an adequate e^aeeption of the tedloua ag gregate of thii kind of soholaatio drudgery be had. without the further reflection that, owing to the inconstancy of the memory, it hecomei aeoesiwy to reoon-suit this lexicon many. timet over for each, or at least a majority, of aU thele myriad words. And here again we are led to ask. What is it all for? It is certain that this kind of attainment, when acquiredj can bring no appreciable aid to the possessor of it in his real life struggle for "bread and butter;" unless he should make the jschool-room the arena of his exertion. It a well known fact, that graduates, when they go into industrial pursuits, generally throw their diplomas, together with their claBsios aside to become the prey alike of motis and forgetfulness. But if mathematics, geography and language afford us so little practical benefit, what shall wb say of astronomy, geology; chemistiy, mineralogy, meta-physics and the like? I think, if we should go and consu^Jv the wage-earner upon this subject, he would toll us emphatically that a knovi(ledge of th^se things has no tendancy whatever tc help him to a job, or to do better work when he has got' it. ' Let me not be hej;,e / misunderstood! . It is not my intention to say a single word  to discourage the mind's acquisition of abstract knowledge in every available �department of natare;-no!: do I allow anjr istan toexcolft^JUi sei^ivply appreciating the charms of classical learning. My sedition here is intended to go no further than sinoply to make just as promiueut as possible the fact that such is not the kind of culture that , fits men for making a living.for themselves and their families. The first duty of man, not to say th6 very highest, is to take care of the body^ by properly feeding it, sheltering it, and clothing it. It is obvious that the body and the mind are related to each other in the order of antecedent and consequent. There must be a body before there' can be a mind. It is only in connection with the former that the continuance of the latter as a denizen of tbil world can be secured. We know only too weU, by fearful'experience, that once separated from its fleshy tenement, it flies away and is gone forever. We have also learned, from the same inexorable teacher, that the health, happiness and usefulness of the mind depends upon the condition of the body, "A sound; mind is a sound body," is but a correct state-^ ment of the order of nature, and an unsound mind in an unsound body, is a painful reality only too familiar in human experience. But an unsound mind in a sound body; or a sound mind in an unsound body, is an unnatural linKing of things, it cannot exist. If there were any thing else needed to convince lis of the pte-eminence of our duty to the physical man, it is plainly readable inthe orderingsof nature herself. For some reason or other, creative Wisdom has adopted flesh and blood as the medium of communication between the material and the spiritual. Every thing mental, every thing moral, every thing spiritual,- every thing excellent in  human character, derives its being from, and exists by virtue of, the material body. Prior to birth, all wisdom, all virtue, all goodness, were nonentities, and at death, for all practical purposes, they cease to be. In view of such facts as these, there should seem to be no. lack of considerations to constitute the care of the body a matter of supremest concern. Indeed the highest and most imperative duty that can devolve upon a human being In this life, ia to see that, by honest meanst hie wardrobe it filled with good, com-fortitble clothing, his larder, with aii Abundance of nourishing food, and that a stiitablesheiter is provided for hiinielt and his household And in itQcord with ibis view a e the worus cf the Scripture. "Ifary pttvide tot for hi* own, he is worSathananinfideV" a state of Ml^ than which none other can be more deplorable. 0. W. a DvKoaH. (To be Continued.) trroat t.�IUsliI.'r. Dbau Bro.
