her own.' Good temper--'love is not easily provoked.' Guile-
lessness--'thinketh no evil.' Sincerity--' rejoiceth not in
iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth.' ' Patience, kindness, gener
osity, humility, courtesy, usefulness, good temper, guilelessness,
sincerity-these make up the supreme gift--the stature of the
perfect man."' Each of these elements he treats in a simple,
practical, familiar style, all aglow with fire. He who reads, what-
ever his position may be, is drawn by an irresistible influence.
The prayerful, earnest Christian seeks at once to fit these things
into his character; the less interested and wordly are made to
consider more deeply, and see clearer, the "life" that leads to
God. In the concluding chapter, Mr. Drummond makes an
earnest appeal to his readers to peruse that chapter prayerfully,
once a week for three months, then once a month for the follow-
ing three months. If thus read, one's whole life may be changed
into a purer, holier life; better fitted for the Kingdom of God.
We would say to all who seek to be better fitted for practical
Christian life, take Mr. Drummond's advice, read earnestly, read
prayerfully, seek to fit these things into your characters. The
promise is, "I will be with thee."

Her position was prescribed, both before and after the fall.
She was made the "mother of all living "-made to fill a place
peculiar to herself, so that any attempt to change it would be an
attempt to change the divine arrangement of society.
Being made a "helpmeet" for man, she was endowed with
peculiar quaiities--made softer, sweeter and milder than he; be-
ing made the "mother of all living," she was made to be clearly
understood and respected. Suitable to this calling, she was given
a tender heart and plastic hand, that she might "rock the cradle
and rule the world." She was constituted to manage the intricate
affairs of the family circle,and bring them into a condition that
could not be produced by the unskillful hand of man. She
was made so "that the destiny of nations might depend upon
