considered. Tho Divine life is not re
garded as a rest, n walk; a tcsf, but a
light. The pilgrim has become a sol
dier. The course of tho stream has led
to an enemy's land. Hut hero there is
not merely supply, but a feast and not
merely a feast, but a jubilant banquet
where tho guest is anointed with tho. oil
of gladness.
At longtlt n less trying scene is
readied. Following1 tho course of tho
waters, led by the Shepherd, a quiet sun
lit land is attained where all is well.
vTho stream has become a deop rolling
river, with rushing waves of'. gopdn ess
and mercy (if tho Hebrew bo read
aright), ilowing along the plain to tho
infinite ocean beyond. Unlike tho re-,
suits of following an earthly river, tho
end is not some wild sda-shore, n scene
of waste, fathomless waters. Hut tlioro
is tho houso of tho Lord whore the great
Shepherd has His homo; Ho who litis
said to all His slioep: "In my Father's
house aro many .mansions; I go to pro-.
pare a place for you." J. Hunt Cooke,

I havo been told of Mr. Shiikeythat
during tho first weeks of Mr. Moody's
labors in England, while tho meetings
wore thinly attended, and thero wcro no
visible signs of success, ho asked Mr.
Moody how ho could lio down and sleep
so soundly when everything scorned so
discouraging, and added that ho him
self was tossing about In a very discon
solate way. I ho answer was character
istic of this earnest disciple: " That tho
result of their work wag none of hia
business; that was tho Lord's part, and
Ho would attend to it in His own good
time. It was theirs to work diligently
and with all their might while it was
day, and just as much their business nnd
duty to rest at night, in order to bo
ready for tho noxt, duys, work." That
was putting faith into practice., the re
sults of which wo all so well know and
so highly commend. Why cannot wo,
too, bo constantly diligent in business,
fervent in spirit, serving tho Lord with
full nndhnppv hearts? Interior.
