Years ago an old pilot of the Mississippi was looking for a job at a ship office. “Do you know the snags along the river?” he was asked. “ No,” he replied. “ Then how do you expect to pilot a ship along this dangerous river?” was the next question fired at him. ’ .“ I know where the snags ain’t,” he replied, “ and that’s where I expect to do my sailing.” He got the job. Those who keep close to the teachings of God’s Word know where the snags o f false teaching are and will be able to steer a safe course to the port o f rest.

Leonardo da Yinci, the Italian painter, produced that won­ derful picture o f the last supper. He had worked on it for months. Finally he admitted some intimate friends to view- it. One, in whose judgment he had great confidence, stood in rapt admiration, then! said: “ How wonderful is that golden cup in Christ’s hand!” The artist ^seized a brush and daubed black paint over the cup. It had been the first attraction to the critic. DaVinci wanted nothing to compete with Him whom he intended to portray for wooing the-hearts o f men.

In thé spring o f 1875, Hudson Taylor, the beloved founder of the China Inland Mission, was returning to London from Brighton, where he had been attending some meetings. Waiting for his train at the station, he was accosted by a Russian noble­ man who had also attended the meetings, and who, on learning that Mr. Taylor was going to London, suggested that they should find seats together. “ But I am traveling third class,” said the missionary. “My ticket admits of my doing the same,” was the courteous reply. And they seem to have found a carriage alone together, for presently Count Bobrinsky took out his pocket-book with the words, “Allow me to give you a. trifle towards your work in China.” Glancing at the bank-note as he received it, Mr. Taylor felt there must be some mistake—it was no less than fifty pounds. “ Did you mean to give me five pounds ?” he said, at once. “ Please let me" return this note: it is 'fo r fifty pounds.” “ I cannot take it back,” replied the other, no less surprised. “It was five pounds I meant to give, but God must have intended you to have fifty pounds I cannot take it back.” Impressed with the incident, Mr. Taylor reached Pyrland Road, the London home of the Mission, to find a prayer meeting going on. A remittance was about to be sent to China, and the money in hand was short by forty-nine pounds; eleven shillings, of the sum it was felt would be required. This deficiency was hot accepted as inevitable. On the contrary, it called together those who knew o f it for special prayer. Forty-nine pounds, eleven shillings, was being asked for in simple faith, and there upon the office table Mr. Taylor laid his precious bank-note for fifty
