working men and women, and one or two papers in the present volume have aimed to represent these methods (see pp. 314, 333). He seems always to have studied his subjects with a main design to let the Bible speak for itself, linking his Scripture proofs together and building them into one another with singular aptness and unceasing prayer.

We hope such method will be more and more followed this winter by the Superintendents in our Mothers’ Classes, because these lessons, if carefully prepared, provide a stem or stalk of Scripture statement on any subject chosen, and while showing WHAT GOD says, and always coming back to that, admit of most varied illustration and anecdote, personal or biographical, (as in Mr. Moody's addresses,) which may grow naturally as leaves from the stem, and meanwhile the plan strikes at the root of egotistical, desultory, and rambling addresses. We may add that it already proves so attractive as at once to increase the number of mothers in attendance where it has been tried.

Our papers this year on HOME work are divided between the experiences of Bible-women and Bible Nurses, Lady Superintendents and Pioneers, and they tell of many souls won for Christ in dark places of the earth, full of drunkenness and cruelty. Bible-women in Syria, India, and Burmah, are also represented from their far-off spheres.

Other articles culled from the Researches of the Palestine Exploration Society afford new illustrations of Bible narratives for those who have not access to the original reports, such as-The Cave of Adullam, p. 27; The Altar of Ed, p. 57; the Boundary Stone of Gezer, p. 89; and the Excavations on Mount Zion, p. 273; while continuous papers for the last six months on the STORY OF THE Book as contained in itself, are intended to promote Bible study by intelligent young people, which is more than ever needed in days of growing Popery and reckless Infidelity

The following classification will show that the Editor continues to keep in view

as usual FIVE distinct spheres of observation.
