Mr Editor, Dpar Sir, ��
I notice that the annual meeting
of  the Union   Hospital was called to   uke
place-on a  Saturday night.     I,am  aware
that it has  been cust.-mary to  hold it that
night in   the week,   and am   inclined'-o believe tli. ''r-as'on   that the   meetings are so
poorly attended ia largely on ^tnaf account.
Having taken ho oh a dee,- interest in hospital affairs (ever since that' blanket deal was^
put' through)   I would  like  to have  been
there, but the night,' (so v-ell)  choa.u  precluded  the possiLihtyof  my,, as well aa a

These   four points  are necessary to   *,
bring a herd to perfection.     Poor
judgment   in   breeding ' gives   the
diaryman  a poor4 herd, no, matter
how careful he has Selected.     For
instance, he  knew a   man who' be-
gan   with  shorthorn.       He   introduced a  grade -Jersey bull   among
them, then a grade  Herefoid,   and
although  the   .uiimnls  introduced
were in   themselves  good   animals,
the crot-ses   resulting   were ^neither'
goi-d   beef   nor  good  Hairy   cattle.
Careless'..in different   breeding   will
kill other go6d,.pbints.     This man  *
sacrificed his, herd  because   he did
not select  properly as   to breeding
crosses.   ' In , selecting   a   cow  for
good   dairying  qualities   pick   one
wi.h a large mouth and  muzzle,  a
lanre briaht eye, and a thin delicate,
neck.    Let her be thin on the point
of tlie   shoulders,   not fiat.���a cow
that is padded flat on the shoulder
is apt to be a poor.milker.    I never
yet.    'saw    a    cow   that    had    too
much   space-'   between    her     fore

', and,   like   a,"great   serpent,  the   herd  strung   itself    across   the ' plain   and  r   through the gorge that led to the river,  ,,halting for a moment on the flat below.,  "Now string 'em out an   get''em to  runnin,   so's   they   can't   stop   their-  r   selves,"     commanded     the    foreman.  ���������"When   you're  g.ttin   'em< inter, the  ,    drink, ride on the down stream side all  you can, so's they can't heacl that way.

A sort of-clumsy ripple that remirded  trie of tb'e movement of logs jammed in  ��������� a river parsed along the length of tbe  '���������    herd;  then tbe cattle broke into alum-  bering   gallop. ' The ..gallop was much  ,  faster than it seemed."    First Ilollis' and  ,-then Spider broke ~ through trie head of  the, herd, and,   riding 'diagonally  for-  "   ward, tried to get   to  one' side of. the  .rush".   I "could see that,their horses were  going at'a rate that  tbey, could   hardly  ,-.-_iave' bettered -if- their lives bad been de-  , oenoin_:_on their speed _,   ,,      ���������  .'  .. Jtloiiis was aneao. with bpider .mine-.  ,  -diately behind , and trying to pass him,  and, aided   by his light weight, Spider  'succeeded in -passing. r He reached the  '..'   outside of the path pursued by the herd,-  and, wheeling bis horse, swooped down  on the flank of the body of  cattle,' still  yelling and flogging as he urged it on.  Hollis also bad  nearly passed   out of  the danger line when  his horse lurched  forward tand   fell, throwing   his   rider  some  distance   from   him,   directly   in  line of the rushing herd that was bearing down upon   them.    He had stepped  into a badger hole.'   Tbe   horse  scrambled to bis   feet   and   galloped   on, but  \ for a moment Holli3. apparently   stunned, lay where he had fallen.4  DNo one could do anything to help���������  there was no time. In .another instant  Hollis rose unsteadily to his feet.  Ther*  c  Covering the foremost bull of the herd, h*  Jircd.  was a bowlder n few foot distant, and  he made for it in a limping run. He  drew a pistol as he knelt behind the  rock, and hurriedly covering the foremost bull of the herd, now terribly close  to him, he fired. The bull plunged headlong against the bowlder and lay with  bis body jammed across it.  The cattle were not quite stampeded.  If they had been they would have piled  themselves oue on   top of  another over  tho bowlder and the dead bull that rested against it until, witb their combined  -weight, they would have almost,crushed  the rock itself.    As it was they turned to  -one side and   the other as they reached  the   impediment, and   left a little open  'space around it, as though the rock were  a candle and tbe space the light it shed.  Another   moment  and the herd had  passed, followed  by a  cloud  of flying  dust.    This  cloud was peopled by cowboys who waved   their bands to Hollis  as they went by him and shouted words  ���������of ironical consolation or counsel.    One  ;of  the   men    advised   bim   to   engage  ���������Spider as a riding teacher.    Hollis was  ���������not pleased.    He made this plain in hia  replies   to  the  rough jokes  that were  showered upon him.    He was not at all  the sort  of person  that could  enjoy a  joke when at his own expense.  The herd  reached   tho river an* *���������*  yellow spray was flung'high in the air  Then they slowed and stopped, heaving  to aud fro. They were prevented from  breaking down stream again by the  cowboys, who stood ready to foil every  eueh attempt, and try as they might  they could not return���������but not an inch  forward would they stir. Tbe river was  rising fast, and more short han'ded than  ever, uow that Hollis was unhorsed, it  was all that we could do to hold them  where they were. ,,  Far in the van of the-herd stood  Eiollis' ponjT, girth deep in the water  Hollis caught sight of him.' Retarded  by his cowboy 'bout heels, three inches  high. Hollis'walked laboriously through  -tbe deep, soft sand toward the herd that  stood hunched together, half in, half  out of the htre.-un. , Going up to the"  nearest cow.<*I.ollis put his hands on  her shonlders and vaulted neatly astride  of hpr.Iean back, and before the as'ton-  ished'aninjal had time to remonstrate  in any way lie, had swung from' her back  to that of another which.was standing  next to her. From this one heswting^to  a third, .nntil'at last he reached a part  of tlie herd near, tlie middle where the  animals were'so packed together that  they were-almost incapable of move-  nit'tit -Then he rose to hia feet and  ���������'started to walk, stepping from one  backbone to the next  Il was a crazy tiling to do.

WitlwrneToot on" the back'of  a   eo*,v, the   other   pressing .the  spinal  column of a vicious cream colored bull,  floliis tried to turn. -The bull threw up  hi.-: head and attempted to plunge.    He  j' *.vas tuo closely confined   to, succeed   in  ������ this,   but   he  unbalance-!   Hollis, who.  withdrawing hip foot from the back of  the bull, placed it on the creature  that  stood directly behind him, .tottered for  an   instant, then   regained his 'balance  and brought his foot forward once more,  replacing it on the bull's back.   Just at  this time Spider came galloping down  the bank.    Pulling his horse almost on  to   it.-   -launches-.,   he  stared   in   blank  amazement.    He would  not  have been  more astonished, he told me afterward,  if Hollis had appeared in the guise of an  angel   flying   over   the   herd   and   he  "conldn' think-er nothin more unlikely" n that."  Hollis saw Spider at the same moment. Once more he tried to turn, and  this timo he succeeded. As he did so hia  foot slipped. He made a couple of quick  steps to recover his balance. He more  than recovered it. Pie threw it the other  way and fell backward at full length  between the cattle.  4 Hollis' struggles to -rise probably  frightened the cattle even more than his  Call had done. They heaved and surgea  frantically to clear themselves of their  burden, and in an instant hart opened a  -���������>;���������������������������" h.tween them through which  :iwl!i>- (hupped with a scream that I  Heard, distant n������ 1 was, far above the  liijisi.- of tiie cattle and the shouting.

If fed  at all, the quantity (should not exceed  forty pounds to a barrel of swill. If  the buttermilk has been obtained from  a creamery and has become an acid before it can be fed, better avoid feeding  it. Buttermilk as obtained from creameries, even though fed to shotes or pigs,  when fed single and alone will, as a  rule, cause the evil results above alluded to.

Mix as before farrowing,  and by the-time the litter is a month  old both sow and pigs should be eating all they will eat clean, and as the  pigs need exercise scatter a little corn  for them to hunt.out of straw litter.

POSTMAN   AND  CHINAMAiM.  Nevr    Carrier   "Worried    *4V_ieTi    .JoUii  ,- Signed -li- Name. '    ���������  A como'dy of errors ovim- ti special dc?liv-  eiy letter occurred in Chinatown tin- other morning: nil because the carrier of the  letter was not familiar with the way* of  the Chinese and -the Chinaman to whom  the letter was addressed had never received such a m.&safte before.  ��������� The carrier was a new man,at the business. A t'ter he had delivered a number of  the special dehveiy letieis an.l taken hi.-  receipts for them he went'-'to the Chinaman's place of business, which was a  laundry.  The carrier found the place locked, bnt  he pounded away on the front deor, and  hnally a sicepy looking Chinainan answered him. Al'ter'slippins- down several-  bars and'unlocking half a dozen locks the  Chinaman opened the door.  The unsophisticated currier handed  him the letter and then let loose a terini-  yelli. The letter carriei's hair stood on  end" as. nine Chinamen in vaiioii������ staces  ,of undress came tninbl n������ into the room.  They chattered .away, excitedly us they  passed the letter about and caretully examined-it.  Finally the bewildered carrier said to  the Chinaman to whom the letter had  been addressed:  ���������'Si;," this hook nnd hurry up."  More chattering followed, and finally  the owner of the letter conipiehench-d  what was wanted of him. He seized one  of the brushes he used in making up his  laundry accounts and, dipping it into a  pot of ink. proceeded to make hieroiriyph-  ic-s all over the page of the special delivery receipt book.    ,  "Here, slop that! That book's no laundry cheek!" cried the now wildly excited  letter carrier as he saw visions of trouble  when he returned to the postofiit-e.  "My uainee." blandly responded John,  as he continued to daub up the buok. The  carrier then insisted on the Chinaman  entering the time of the receipt'of !<!���������������������������  letter in the book. This the Iaundrym'an  could not understand, nnd after ten minutes' argument on the subject the carrier  entered the time himself.  When he got back to the postpflice, he  told his troubles to friends and said: "I  suppose I.will be sacked for violating the  rules and letting that Chinaman make a  puzzle out of the book. ��������� If I am not, I  never want to deliver another special to a  Chinaman." '      .  ,  He was assured that it was always customary for the Chinamen to sign4 as this  one had done and .that no trouble would  come to him.  Eeyond  Recall.

After   deducting   the      in-  crease  caused,by  growth  of popula-  - ....i, -....-��������� hj.i-.---U or new I'liuuinys,  thero has been a rise of *i0 per cent.  This _j-.create has been, by 'no means  uniform. Some parts 'have" degenerated. For instance, there are 'flats  in Victoria street which some time  ago fetched ������300 a year,, and now  can be had for,-������200. The outer  circle of inner London has sunk at a  rapid rate, but there are parts, especially around -the'" busier thorough-  ,fares in -the city, that have trebled  in value in little more than a decade. Large sections of slum property in.Ea.st London have' doubled  their returns in four years.  The district around Cornhlll .is  now the most highly rented spot on  earth. - Not. long, since one-room near  the Royal Exchange let for between  r������2,000 and ������3,000 a year. Within  the, past few weeks a house agent  ^advertised"' certain _, propertics^in  ���������Throgmorton street ' to let.'' For  seven telephone boxes on the 'cround  floor ������250 a year of rent was asked  for, each: For a'suite of three rooms  on the mezzanine floor ������1.000 a"year  .was' asked'.. Six rooms on the first  floor were offered at ������2,000 a year.  .For shops Bond street is the'r dearest     thoroughfare'-' in' ; ,the    .world.  * Broadway in' New York comes next,  and a limited radius; near the Place  de l'Opera in  Paris  ranks third.-    A  ��������� small-    shop     in Bond  street fetches  , readily from ������750 to ������1,300 a  year.- This includes the t shop , and  basement, but not, of course, the'- remainder of the house. .The shops m  P.ee-ent street cost .even more, but  then 'they ���������' are larger, thus making  the .rent-per  square foot work     out  less.'  , ��������� ~ .,','''  - In " Cock-spur street valucst have  gonecup 50-.per cent, in a very short  xime, and acute agents'now'regard it  ' as one' of the best- selling situations  in London. Business premises there  'fetch' from ������000 to ������4-,'000 a year.  The demand for property round -the  Trafalgar Square district is exceedingly, keen. Recently an agent for  certain coronation business wanted  one office in the neighborhood of St.  James' "for which "he offered ������300.  Ho  could  not  obtain it.  The rise of ,-values in London was  very plainly shown in some of the  compensation ' cases that arose  through the new Holborn Strand  street improvement scheme. Thus  in Holywell street valuers declared  that, shops rented at ������100 a year  on lease' were/ now worth quite  ������250 a year. A rent had been paid  for a house in the Strand- at ������1.75  a year. It was arranged that the  new lease was" to be at the rate of'  ������������������375 a year. For -premises oh the  other side of the street, .almost opposite, the ejected person had been  asked payment of ������5,000, - and a  rental   of   ������900.     Another  house  let  - on lease at ������175 a year, and was  partly sublet as follows: Shops,  ������185; rooms,  ������4.07.  In nearly all London buildings rent  is not an 'inclusive item. The tenant  has to-pay his own rates and taxes,  and to provide for his own cleaning,  lighting, and heating. In some newer" buildings, however, the American  plan is being adopted. Thus in the  Birkbeck Bank Chambers, the enormous pile facing Holborn and running toward Fleet street, the one  rent charged includes rates, taxes,  and office cleaning.- Newer buildings1  ���������will go even beyond this. In. the  prooosed skyscraper in the Strand,  at the bottom of , the new central  London avenue, rents are to include,  as they do in America,1 heating,  lighting, cleaning, rates, and taxes.  ,.In short, the one charge will cover  everything.  In estimating rents, London owners  make considerable reductions for. top  floors. The higher you go, the less  you pay/ even though there is a lift.  Thus in one building, a set of 13  rooms on the first floor realizes ������1 .,-  200 a year. A set of two rooms on  the sixth floor is let for ������38.  The family solicitor who wishes a  nice suite of rooms near Lincoln's  Inn Fields may count himself fortunate if he gets them for ������300 a  year. "Reasonably rented offices can  often be obtained off Queen Victoria  street, a set of two going sometimes for ������60 and ������70. There are  nearly, always odd rooms, which  have some drawbacks, such as a cjark'  outlook, or a tiring approach, to be  had at'a low rental.  Turning from business premises to  private houses, the increase in rent  takes a somewhat different form. The  people who are highest rented in proportion to their incomes are undoubtedly the slum dwellers around  ' Spitalfields. There you can find people earning 14 shillings a week who  pay 6 shillings of that for the rent  of one room: We find there that the  worse the house the more in proportion   the   rent.     Thus   a  respecta  ble fanmy with a- little furniture , can get two or three  rooms        for a        rent       working  out  '   from,  3s.  6d.  to  5s.. a     room.  The man  on the verge of destitution,  with no   furniture,   has  difficulty     in  finding a room at Gel.  f-ndimr a room at 6s.  From Spitalfields to Mayfair is a  n-rc-it .jump/ Ma.vf.ur to-day shows  in sortie parts a great rise, and 'in  ' thcr parts rather ��������� a', decrease in  Jt is- difficult tu, state the  yoarly figures, because,  rule, the occupiers buy  , nav so many thousand  il<e ' loiise, ail'annual  usually of -from^ ������150  year,   ancl   have   certain  ���������_'<-r<  t'  t  .ii  here  ff-nei-'.11  .   .       ������  tr-n^es  ground   rent,  to   ������300   a  expenses, in repairing thoir, property  to meet. A nice house in Belgravia,  can'be had for 6,000 guineas, -and  a ground rent of ������150 a year.  -Many', however, will run- very much  higher than this.'' Thus, for 30  yea.rs' lease' of- a house in , Great  Cumberland-Place 7,500 guincas_ are  asked, and a ground rent of ������.150 a  year. There is now being offered a  delightful mansion iii "Kensington, on  a. ��������� 42 ' years'' lease, for 27,500,. guineas, and a ground rent apptt5>aching  ������200 a year. But even in Kensington and" Mayfair ' there are side  streets, unfashionable, where you  can ootaui a whole house for ^OU oi  ������S0 a year. <    *  To bring the cost "of rent home to  the individual let us .suppose that ,he  wants to take a, house somewhere in  ihe four-mile radius. ( On its circumference he, can, be accommodated with  a' charming little residence of^the  bijou order for, from ������35 to ������7o a  .year.' 'If this is too far* out,'a mile  nearer Charing Cross will add about  100 per cent. >' to his house agent's  bill, aTfamily'house in'the neighborhood of Chelsea arid the, further end  of South Kensington .being obtaina-  'ble fo'r'from ������70 upward. Supposing he renin' W here for a few years  and prospers, ho will want to migrate to a more select street. Probably such a desirable milieu may 'be  found .in one or other or both of the  streets between which his present one  lies: If will have the name of Something Gardens'as likely as not, ' and  for the privilege of moving from the  one place <-������ thc other'he will be able  to add,the satisfaction of paying a  rent which will run from ������L30 to  ������200. '     *���������   - '  ������.lf ,the genteel atmosphere prompts  longings "for further experiments, he  may move another mile nearer. Piccadilly on trial. In thc neighborhood  of -' Brompton .-' and 'Knightsbridge  manv excellent -and elegant people  ���������will "he delighted 'to, allow him , the  temporary, use of . their/ homes for  ���������suc-lt nominal sums as irom, ������300 a.  year'up 'to ������600. If he approves of  the experiment he "will be able to  "save at least half this amount by  taking - a similar- house for himself,  iAmbition now having a free rein, his  next ' move will be to one of the  squares where Horses stand'before the  doors in pairs. Six hundred pounds  a year would be, a reasonable sum  to exchange for this dignity, and as  better houses fall vacant this could  be increased until one of the grand  houses permits the transfer of anything bet.we?n ������1,000 and ������1,500.  In the latter<��������� case the actual^rent  might not exceed ������50 or ������75 a  year, thc difference being paid as a  premium. There are causes for the  heavy amount of such rents, the  chief of these being the competition  for the houses, and the middlemen  through whom the transactions have  to be made. A dealer often rents a  sure house from the agents, and he  is noi modest in the matter of pro-  lit  that  he requires.  Improved houses in the best  Blooms bury squares which fetched  ������150 a few years back now fetch  ������250.  THEY PUT ON STYLE.

On January S, 1806, Cape Colony  came under the authority of Britain,  and has remained so ever since,  though the final and formal act of  cession by the King of thc Netherlands, was delayed until 1S15. As  thus defined, the colony consisted of  120,000 square miles of territory,  inhabited by a population, of about  60,000.     The scries  of  events  which  thus ended in British possession may  bo said to have begun in 1795���������when  the Butch colonists, catching the revolutionary fever, which then /prevailed in Europe, became restive under the yoke of, Holland and revolted. The British sent a fleet to tho  support, of the Prince of Orange, but  as Holland was manifestly unable to  maintain her restored authority, the  colony remained practically, under  English rule until the Peace of Amiens in 1������02. The continued insta-  bilitv of the Butch rule 'in 1806 led  to "the- second occupation by Sir  Bavid Baird, ��������� with the,.result, as  stated,'that-the Cape has since remained'one of the premier colonics oi  the British Empire.        ,   '  '. ���������  i '       f  Good  Shipliuilcllnar Year.  According to a London correspondent last year was a good shipbuilding year in Croat Britain, but thero  has been a 'noteworthy , diminution- in  the number . of warships built for  foreign powers. The^ vessels included in this year's return.are principally for Japan, "ancl at the present moment there are prartically no largo  ships building for foreign navies. Tho  falling,off in orders is. attributed ,to  ooliticak ennsideratinns. ,      u   ���������  One of Enslnnd's Foremost Formers.  One of England's foremost farmers is  a' woman, tho Hon. Mrs. Murray Smith.  On her estate, Gurnloy Hall, Leicestershire, she raises some of the finest Jersey  cattle that, are bred anywhere. Sho is  an early.riser and is up and about among  her men ns soon as the'sun is in sight.  She attends to all the details of thc management of, her estate. All,, of the'im-.  -provements which can contribute to the  well, being of the animals'are made at  her discretion. She sees that they have,  tho best of food arid the most cbmforta-  ble' quarters.' As the' result they have  taken many prizes. One cow, Lorina,  which'carried off 'tho'milking prize at  Tring and the butter, certificate at the  Bath and west of England show, gives  1)00 gallons of milk yearly.' Mrs. Smith's  rule is not to keep any'cow which yields  less than GOO gallons of milk a year.. She  herself, attends to all of her correspondence and the record keeping in connection with the animals.���������Chicago Record-  Herald.      ' .      .  Tea nnd  Teetli.'

Local  fame has long been hers. but. the climax  came when two Chinamen' appeared at  'her,door and begged hor to pull teeth for  them. The poor fellows were suffering  intense pain. Their plaintive'pleas won  over her, prejudices", and, without' admitting tho men,to her house, the woman  twisted out their troublesome teeth. Later she received a large f-ase of tea _that  the corner grocer appraised at $50.���������  Philadelphia Rpcord.  .  In  Type.

They, were so cut fo the  heart that ihcy wero filled with fury and  gnashed their teeth at him. How suggestive was their conduct of^the place ton  which they were journeying, where, there  is weeping, and gnashing of (c-eth not  against others so much as because of  their own,torment!

The number four suggests the four cor-,  ners of the earth (Rev. vii, 1), or tho  whole earth, and reminds,us that the  whole world lieth in the wicked one (I  John v, 19, R. V.), and the wicked-oue  will never cease his hatred of God or of  the people of God.'--We are wise-when  we'stop our. ears as David did and .refuse  to hear the lijvischievons things that evil  people speak-.(Ps,: -xxxviii; 12. 13), but to  ��������� stop one's.cars from hearing the things  of God is truly-,'the" devil's^work.    Refus:  ing the-truth','they were believing ^a- lie  (II Thess. ivlO/ll), and,'believing'that  Jesus of Nazareth was an impostor,"they,  judged   Stephen   to   be "guilty <��������� of   bias-,  phemy, and "in stoning, him thought they,  .were obeying their'law (Lev.  xxiv, J.6)/.  while they themselves were, before God,-  the blasphemers and the guilty ones, -Initr-  they   were   blinded   by  the   god   of   this  world (II Cor. iv,'3, 4)..' This is our first  introduction  to   the   young  man. named  Saul,   unless,  as  some  think,   he.,is. the  same voung 'man.who went away, from  Jesus 'one   day, sorrowfully   because   h������  loved his possessions. s    . .  ���������  ' 59. "Lord1 Jesus, receive my spirit.  Thus said Stephen as they were stoning,  him to death, for he knew whom he believed and saw Him even before he went  out to be with Him. When our'Lord  Himself was dying. He said, "Father,  into Thine hands I commend My spirit.  And similar words came from David by  the same spirit long- before (Luke xxm,  4C Ps. xxxi, 5), for he also could truly  sav: "I trusted in Thee, O Lord." "My  times are in Thy hand" (Ps. xxxi, 14,.  15). These dying words of Stephen and  of the Lord Jesus give no encouragement  to the belief that between death and  resurrection the spirit is asleep and unconscious,. If any are not fully persuaded cbncerning;ithe life and bliss of  tho believer apart from the body, let  them read and believe Luke xvi, 22; xxiii,  43; II Cor. v, .8; Phil, i, 21, 23; Rev. vi,  9-11.  GO. "Lord, lay not this sin' to their  charge." Like his adorable Lord and  Master he prayed for his murderers  (Luke xxiii. 34). Our instructions are,  "Love your enemies; bless them that  curse you; do good to them that hate you,  and pray for them which despitefully use  you and persecute you" (Matt, v, 44).  And while this is impossible to the natural man, if any man be in Christ ho is a  new creature, born from above, a temple  o-* the Holy Spirit, a mansion in which  the Father and the Son have come to  dwell (II Cori v, 17: I Cor. vi, 19, 20;  John xiv, 23). and Christ in us can do  what He did when here on earth m the  body prepared for Iliui. It is our privilege to-yield fully to Him and take as  our, motto, "Not I, but Christ" (Gal. ii.  20). '������������������' '���������'������������������'���������  viii 1. "And Saul was consenting unto  his death." Hear his own account of  what he said to the Lord Jesus long n������t-  eiward,;"And I said, Lord, they know  that 1 imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on Thee, aud  when the blood of Thy martyr Stephen  was shed I also was standing by and consenting unto his death and. kept the raiment of them that slew him" (Acts xxii,  19. 20). Beforo Agrippa he said, "I verily  thought with myself that I ought to do  many things contrary to the name of  Jesus of Nazareth, which thing I also  did in Jerusalem" (Acts xxvi. 9, 10). And  then he went on to tell how not only in  ���������.TPHiPsilcm. but in other cities, being exceedingly mad against the saints, he was  the means of their imprisonment, punishment and death. Our lesson tells of the  greatness of the persecution in Jerusalem  after the death of Stephen and how all  the believers except the apostles were  scattered through Judaia and Gamaria.  The Lord's'command was to "go into all  the world and preach the gospel to every  creature," "To be His, witnesses unto the  uttermost parts of tho earth" (Mark xvi,  15; Acts i, 8), but up, to this time they  seem to have confined their testimonyto  Jerusalem, and it required a persecution  to scatter them that they might obey His  command. Thus He maketh the wrath  of man to praise Him and restrains what  He does not see fit to use (Ps. Ixxvi. 10).  2. "And devout men carried Stephen  to his burial and made great lamentation  over  him."     Well,   they   did   not   bury  Stephen, but they bunod all that was  lelt of him on the earth, the- house in  which he had sojourned. 'Stephen himself was "absent from the body., present  with the Lord." but his body was asleep,  even as Jesus had said of Lnzaru<* when  speaking of-his death, "Qur friend Laza-,  rus sleepeth" (John' xi, 11-14). There ,  was no occasion to lament for Stephen',  for to him it was a great,gain, but it  seemed that the church could ill afford to-  lose such a witness. 'We still think when- '  the-faithful witnesses are calh-d home  that it is strange when there seems to he  such great-need.of them here and there  are poemingly so few, but we must'remember that the work-is His who. in undisturbed'majesty, is'at God's right hand.
