took It for distant thunder; bittlooking

flying high In the air, as If lifted by

bull, roaring and tawing tho sod, canto
tearing down lu the direction of the

tall, well formed, athletic, and spunky
seized a rail and went out to meet the
adversary; another took to his heels

It is a Sabbath morning; and Its
doors thrown open ns the hour for
prayer approaches, tho synagogue be
gins to fill. Among those who enter Is
a man with n withered hand ; and how
ever others come, thero is liasto In ids
step, and high expectation seated on
Ids brow. Hlrssed day, now Is his
ehnnce to bo healed. Jesus is in the
neighborhood, and Is sttro to bo nt wor
ship. Farly there, likely tho first, tills
crippled mini, heeding nothing else,
looking at none, talking with none,
keeps Ills yo on thu door keenly ob

heard ; again thu door opens ; mid the
colour that flushes bis face tells that
tlio person has now como that ltu lias'
come to meet. Xor I., tills nil ito can do
nnd does. Observing where Jesus at
tended by ills disciples sits, ho rlcc.s,
and elbowing thu crowd nsldo without
regard to their challenge or murmurs,
pushes on to phico himself heforu the
Saviour, fight in his eye. All this ho
can do, and does, and more. Ordinarily
concealing a deformity he was nshamed
of, lie now drops his robe, and exposing
tlio poor unsightly hand In tho hope
that It may catch Christ's eye and move
his pity, sits with looks fixed Implor
ingly on our Lord. There was no need
for him to speak. Ills eager looks, and
tlio poor, bared, withered hand wore
touching prayers. Nor did thee prayers
alt long lor an answer. Tho oyo that
nover saw misery but to ylty it, isnt
length turned on him ; and Jesus says
Stretch out thine hand ! Strango com
mand to others, perhaps also to ltlinse'f
ns bidding him do tlio very thing Ito
had no tower to do. Still hu tries it
galli doing what ho can, ho makes tin
effort and, Glory to God I bursting
from his lips, succeeds. Vlrtito goes
out of Christ. The shrunken hand in-
tantly acquires si healthful color, and
swells Into Its right proportions. In his
joy tho man shuts and opens it ; moves
tho pliant fingers; aud holds the mira
cle aloft to tho gaze of a crowd dumb
witli nstonlsliitient. (tivo lilm a harp,

Amono tlio early Christians thu mod
em style of preaching was reversed ; the
preacher generally delivered his exhor
tation in a sitting posture, wlillo the
congregation heard him standing.
Chrysotom preached in litis manner.
Men wore their heads covered in the
church, in tlio time of Elizabeth. The
habit has been traced to the Hebrew
Synagogue. Our Lord sat and disputed
among the doctors in thu Temple. Pub
lic expression of approval by tho audi
ence was mado by tossing up their gar
ments, or waving tliulr pinnies, lu the
timo of Chrysotom and Jerome.
Tho old English mime, Parson, i.s sup
posed to bo a corruption of person, the
person by eminence. Fuller remarks
thnt thu Scripture give four names to
Christians, taken from tho fourcardinal
graces: saints, for tlieirh(illuess; heller
ers, for their faitlt ; hrcthren, for their
love; iliseipUn, for their knowledge.
Tlio clergy wero originally styled
clerks, from thoNoriiinncustom of their
Judges being chosen from tlio sacred or
der. In tlio first century, they were
distinguished by the titles of presbyter
and bishops. Church music issiippo-pil
to havo been first Introduced by Grego-
ory the Groat, A.D., fil!2. Church stee
ples wero originally parochial fortresses.
Sidney Smith thus defines tho object
of preaching: "It Is constantly to re
mind mankind of wind mankind is con
stantly forgetting; not to supply tho
dofects of human Intelligence, but to
fortify tho feebleness of huinaii resolu
tlons; to recall mankind from the by
paths where they turn, Into the path of
salvation which all know, imt few
tread." "How comes it," demanded a Hi-hop
of Garrlck, "that 1, in expounding di
vine doctrines, produce so littlo etft ct
upon my congregation, wlillo you can
so easily rouse tho passions of your au
ditors by the representation of fiction ?
Tho nnswer was short any pithy. "Ho
cuuso I recite falsehoods us if they wero
truo, wlillo you deliver truths as If they
wero fiction."
Hobert Hall, even, admitted tlmt ho

ing better than iio did. llo was for
