There is no .time so sacred as fho twi­
light hour. The sun sinks , calmly to
rest as a weary child on fhil'bosom~eF
its mother; thp littlq. birds cease thoir
sweet songs Of joy, and all nature seeks
repose. The merchant, weary of the
duties of his counting-room, tnrns fHth
delight to his home, where, for a brief
periotl.’he can uninterruptedly enjoy
the society of his family. Thp thoughts
of the mother turn, anxiously to her ab­
sent son, w ho has left the home of his
childhood, and is now wandering in the
land of strangers. We pause in thia
holy hour to pluck sweet flowers of the
past from memory's garden; in fancy
vje mingle in the society of those with
whom wq played in the merry days of
childhood; but wjio have since passed
to the land beyond the stars—
demnation, to an heirship with the
Son of the Most H>gh. His promise of
exaltation is not in temporal, bht iu
spiritnal things, and will be fully ea-
joyod not only in tho ohuroh militant,
bnt in the church triumphant. Tlie
rich brother is commanded to rejoice in
that he is made low, brought down from
the topling height of pride, led to see
the folly of tmsting in “uncertain rich,
es,” and made a partaker in the shame
and sufferings of Christ, that in due
time he may be exalted to reign with
with him. Thus both are brought by
faith in one gracious Lord $0 one pre­
cious hope, which is as an anchor to
the sonl, both sure and steadfast, en­
tering within the veil. The jealousies
are alike diffienlt io overcome, alike
deatrnctive of apiritnal life, and if not
conquered, will fetter the soul and drag
it down the step« of endleee woe.
