There is a story told o f a workman o f the great chemist Faraday. One day he knocked into a jar o f acid a little silver cup. It disappeared, was eaten up by the acid, and couldn’t be found. The question came up whether it could ever be found. One said he could find it; another said it was held in solution and there was no possibility o f finding it. The great chemist came in and put some chemical into the jar, and in a moment every particle o f silver was precipitated to the bottom. He lifted it out a shapless mass, sent it to a silversmith, and the cup Was restored. If Faraday could precipitate that silver and recover his cup, I believe God can restore my sleeping and scattered dust. ( Youth’s Companion.') A man arose in one o f Mr. Moody’s meetings once and said: “ I have lived on the Mount o f Transfiguration for five years.” How many souls have you led to Christ?” was Mr. Moody’s reply. “ I do not really know,” replied the gentleman. “ Have you led any?” Mr. Moody again asked. . “ I do not know that I have.” “ Sit down then,” said Mr. Moody, “ for we do not want that kind o f mountain-top experiences in our church.” Mr. Beecher was once asked why his church was so suc­ cessful. Mr. Beecher replied: “I preach to 450 people on Sunday morning and evening, and they take up my message and preach it all week.” , The Rev. J. Hudson Taylor relates that a Chinese pastor, meeting a young native convert, asked him if it was true that he had known the Lord for three months. The reply was: “Yes, it is blessedly true.” The pastor continued: “ And how many have you won for Jesus?” - “ Oh,” said the convert, “ I am only a learner, and never possessed a complete New Testament until yesterday.” “Do you use candles in your home?” “Yes.” “Do you expect the candle to begin to shine when it is burned half­ way down?” “ No, as soon qs it is lit.” The young man saw the point, and went to work. Within six months several of his neighbors and others had received the light o f the Gospel. A pril 15, 1928 T ext: James 5:20 A nose and throat specialist had to operate on a little girl who was unable to take any anesthetic. He took a fifty-cent piece out o f his pocket, and said: “ That’s for you to spend exactly as you wish. I’m going to hurt you a little, but take a good look at the fifty cents before I begin, and then hold it tight in your hand, and remember what you saw while I’m at work— it won’t hurt nearly so much.” When it was over, the doctor patted her on the head and said: You’re a brave little girl. Now tell me what you thought about while I was at work.” “ I thought o f the words,” she replied. The words!” said the physician. “The date, you mean ?” for he had hardly remembered that the coin had any words on it. “No, I mean the words at the top, ‘In God we trust,’ ” she said quite simply. “ It was the first half dollar I ever saw, so I A pril 14, 1928 T ext: Prov. 11:30 A pril 16, 1928 Text: Psa. 84:12
