J’ e. r:
Frank Tandy is expected out this

the brethren turning their faces’
toward our sunny vales. Here is a All matter intended for this department

not expect such a bountiful harvest
at the first * sowing, for there is
much need of summer fallow work
As these subjects are taught in

laborer can “ come rejoicing bring nearly all of our best schools to day,

Bro. A. W. Sanford who will
teach near Butte City, has engaged
to preach one-fourth of his time in
Glen valley, about eighteen miles
— west of Colima. Thia
ford’s first engagement in the work.
He must not expect to have always
—a full moon and a high tide, but
hope and Drayer, a readiness and
- promptness to duty, and always
“ Be instant,” he may expect all
will bo well. I well remember
many years ago, with others, being
f in the company of tire venerable
veterans Bros. D. S. Burnett and
Livy Hatchett. We were at Bro.
~ BuUar’a,at Abingdon, and greatly'
pleased at the reminiscences of the
first years of their ministerial life.
r Bro. Hatchett remarked that for his
first year’s labor he only received
three dollars. Bro. Burnett in reply
said that when he first began to
— preach he felt like paying the

only received a pair of sockB.
There is little need of young
preachers being discouraged. If
we all would often read the trials
of the pioneer preachers, it would
mollify our feelings, and give a new
lustre to every phase of the ques
Promises and threatenings, curs
ings and blessings go together.
There is no act but carries its fruit
with it. The young should be
taught that God’s law is strict and
curses and blesses. It is God’s law
in Nature as well as Revelation.
One who eats proper food is nour
ished ; one who eats poison must
die. Human law protects those
who obey .it and sets the alterna
tive of punishment before those
who disobey. It will not do to re
sist the threatenings. They are
for our good. They cannot be es
caped except by obedience. In
that way they can be Scaped, and

Foo Choo’s Balsam of Shark's Oil
Positively Restores the Hearing, and is the
Only Absolute Cure for Deafness Known.
This Oil is abstracted from peculiar species o
small White Shark, caught in the Yellow Sea,
known as Carcharodon llondeletii. Every
Chinese fisherman knows it. Its virtues as a
restorative of hearing were discovered by a
Buddhist Priest about the year 1410. Its cures
were so numorous and many so seemingly mir
aculous, that the remedy was officially proJ
claimed over the entire Empire. Its use be
came so universal that for over 300 years no
Deafness has existed among the Chinese people.
