And this is the new New Testament,
And 'tie come in the sweet o' the year,
When the fields are shining in cloth•bf•gold,
And tte'bkrds arc singing so clear;
nd over ana into the grand old text,
Reverent and thoughtful men,
Through many a summer and winter past
Have been peering with book and pen. .
Till they've straightened the moods and
And drOpped each obsolete phrase,
And softened the strong, old-fashioned words
To onr daintier modern ways;
Collated the ancient manuscripts,
Particle, verb, and line,
And faithfully done their very best
To improve the book divine.
I haven't a doubt they have done it well,
But it is not clear to me
That we needed the trouble it was to them,
. On either side of the sett.
I cannot, help it, a thoughtthat comes—
Yon know I'm old and plain--
Bat it seems like touching the ark of God; 7
-And the touch to my heart is pain.
Fvr ten years past, and for five times ten •
At the beck of that, my dear,
I've made and mended and toiled and saved,
With my Bible ever near. •
Sometimes it was only a verse at morn
That lifted me up from care,
Like the springing wings of a sweet-voiced
Cleaving the golden air.
And sometimes on SandAy afternoons
'Twae.a chapter rich and long,
That came to my heart in its weary hour
With the lift of a triumph song.
I-studied the precious words, my dear,
When a child at my mother's knee,
Arid I tell you the Bible I've always had
Is a good enough book for me.
1 may be stubborn and out of date,
- But my hair is whita as ktibw,
And I lose the things I leariied to love
In the beattiiful long•agO.

'Twould be losing a part Of.myself,
You may lay the new New Testament
Away on the upper stielLi
I cling to the one inv good man read

To the one tuyllita children !lapel

shall gather my dear ones close again
Where the many mansions be,
And till then the Bible I've alwaya- had

THE BETISIO.k O r r BIBLE.
THE, REVISION AS VIF.VEID FROM A MTN
'Every word of God is pure,'—Prov
erbs, xxx., s—was the text selected by
the Rev. Robert Collyer. He said he
supposA there nester a time since the
New Testament was gathered into one
book when so many men and women
found reading it in the En
glish tongue, and that nowhere on the
earth could we find so many bending
over the sacred pages as in the United
States. After. speaking of the hold
which the Bible has upon the common
heart and.mind, he continued:
It is an open secret that for many
years there has•beeh a feeling among
those who can compare the English
tongue with the originals that the old
translation we have used for 270 years
is not always true. Manuscript copies
have been found of a much earlier.. date
than any that were known to the
scholars of that day and the; , .e contain
new reading—new because they are so
01(1—which point - uow l and then to the
suspicion that the biter manuscripts
have been , altered iu:the interest_ of
some sect, or mistakes were 'made of
Which the o .ribs was not aware or mat
ters whi+ were once written on the
miugiu Intve found a place in the text.
We have also to face The fact that iu
despite of the 'sweet, pure. well of En
glish undefiled se find in . the Bible
many words in our own -tongue haV'e
lost their old meaning and taken
another, or have quite dropped out of
The preacher : said he was : sure he
spoke in the mind of all lovers of The
Divine Book when he said he was glad
so little harm had been done to our
deep lyingioye for the World, which is
so woven into the warp and woof of our
life. He was glad for this reform, which
is so far from revolution in the book so
nia — ny loved best. All the great chap
terti in the Old and New Testaments
have a lyrical element in them. We
find, to our delight, we can stilt sing
them to ourselves, and they are as full
us ever of the sweet old charm, while we
cannot be displeased at even losing
some touch of it for the • sake of the
clearer-truth which has come to us be
yOnd a doubt through the good which
has been done. He related the cases of
two persons who had learned - Greek on
purpose to read the Testaments, and
who, after" having done so, declared
they found nothing there but U r nitar,
ianism: There was fine passage once
deemed conclusive in support of the
Trinity, and certaiulY„ if it was proven
true, the strongest words to be found
for that side —"There are three that bear
record in heaven—the Father, the-Word
and the Holy Ghost, and these three
—are one.' This noble• body of divines,
who have made the new version, in
which there is only one Unitarian, have
left the passage opt altogether and so
conveyed to us their belief . that John
never wrote it—a:truth good scholars of
the present everywhere have been in
sisting on for many years. 'I find,' said
Dr. Collyer, 'nu - hew shade of meaning,
brought in anywhere to maintain
trinity.' The Lord our God, the Lord
is one and master, thou halt well said.'
He is one in the gospels, , , and God is
. one in St. Paul's epistles and in the
Epistle of James I notice also new
' shades of meaning touching the person
.and office of Jesus. In the old Vetioll
we read, 'There:is - ono * God and one
`mediator between • God and men, the
man Christ Jesus:" Li the new it
• "There is oue_ mediator between God
end. man, himself man, Christ Jesus'.'
In the same epistle the old reading, 'God
was- nianifest in the flesh' is changed to
'tie who %Vas manifested in the flesh,•
taking the great name completely out of
the controversy, as we have always
claimed it should be. . In another
epistle Paul, speaking of Jesus, is'inade
to say in she old version, 'Who being in
.the form of 'God thought it not rob
bery to be equal with God.' But in
the new the passage reads, 'Who being
in the form of God thought it not it
thing to be grasped to be on an equality
with God'— a reading- which: alters' the
'whole meaning. Elseirhere the old
version reads, 'Of whom as concerning
the flesh Christ came, who is over all,
God blessed forever.' The reading we
have insisted on is giving in the margin
—'He who if God over all he blessed
forever; or, 'He who is over all is God,
blessed fotever,' which changes the
doctrine with •an ascription. In the
First epistle of John the name-of God,
which it hay been claimed refers to
Christ, is taken out of the text entirely.
7i There is but one Owe in the old version
of the New Tektunent iu which the
word 'atonement' is used. In the new
version this one instance is left out, and
the word 'reconciliation' takes its place.
:The old reading on which the.Cal
vanistic brethren set such store, • 'The
Lord addeth to the church daily such
as should be saved,' is now made to
read, 'Those that were being saved,'
and predestination is softened by just-a
touch with preordained, so that while
the word is' still' capable of trouble
enough when it is turned from life 'to
death, it is not the old grim word-which
has struck' such pain to the human
heart. I noticed also,another 'word is
changed and touched with this sweet
reasonableness, and that is the word
'conversion,' of which so much.bas be en
made we could not allow. The word is
now left out and a very good one takes
it, place: 'And except ye be converted
and became 10 little children,' is now
'Except ye turn and become as little
(children,' and •Except a luau be born
again he cannot ste the kingdom of
God;' is made to read, 'Except. a man
be born anew or from abofe.' That
ugly word 'damnation' is left out en
tirely and gives place to 'condemnation'
or to !judgment,' and 'Knowing, there
fore, the terror of the Lord," is altered
into 'Knowing, therefore, the fear of
the . Lord.' We have often heard
divines preach from the test, .'All Scrip
ture is giving' by inspiration of God
and is profitable for doctrine, -for re
proof,' and so on; and then make this
the proof,-that the whole 13ible was so
givena dogma we have steadily de:
flied. We are now justified. The new
version of . the- New Testa - nen; read,
'Every Scripture inspired of God is also
profitable for teaching,' and so.
truth we.laye always held.
There is u clear gain also in the new
version touching that last fastness of
error anti 'dismay, hell and the even fist
ing-torments. Old Latimer was report
ed 346 years ago to Mr. Secretary Corn
well as having preached in Bristol
sundry erroneous doctrine's,' such as 'in
hell there is no'literul fire.' It was to
be expected Of the great, sweet, human
heart and the L great outspoken soul. It
is the eternal protest of the • human
heart against thiS doctrine of eternal
doom, uud what the hymn book calla
the ''darkness, fire'und chains,'-that has
brought out so many protests from
geat . men who luive lived in the world,
and pondered on it, It has lorigseem
ed clear to me that where any sentence
can be made . to prove this eternal doom,
and eternal fire, that senteuc should not
be taken as a word of God. Our new
translators have dealt with these pas-
sages too timidly. Still they make the
margin often read, 'For ages and ages,'
where the teit reads, 'Nor ever and
ever,' and that is in harmony with the
best scholarship, which insiststhat'ne
age enduring' should sdwaya be •
instead of 'everlasting' and 'forever.'.
They have not shown quite this spirit,
however, in dealing with the word
'hell,' which' has gathered in the course
of time such fearful ineaning's. I
think they shOold simply have left it
out in The twenty places in which it oc
curs and printed the original word in
every iustance—Hades, Gehenna on .
Tartarus—and left us to make out the
meaning. each man for himself. • They
have put Gehenna in the 'Margin. They_
had best left it in the test. It means
the Vale of Hinman. It was some sabh,
plaiceoutside" JeruSalem :,as we are talk
ing of now where we may cremate our
refuse. In the OM Testament we only
find the word Sheal, or Hades, in this :
connection, and when Hades occurs in
the New it is never franslated into
'bell' in the new version. And so it
Will come to pass that we shall have the
old stern book in the new version with
out the word, while it still standl in all
its mediaeval ugliness and horror in the
New Testamentthe gospel, thi3 glad
tidings to men of God's eternal love.
The saddest thing that could happen
now would be to make this new version
a bone of fierce and bitterd contention
and the lament again come true.'-
A Patent Jleror.
• A San Francisco man claims to have
invented a patent juror Which will meet
the requirements of the law fully. The
patent, interccinv.ertible, incorruptible
juror is built of boiler iron, firmly riv
eted from the neck to the hips, and
covered with trunk leather, - prnamen , ,
tally sewed, and warranted not to or
crack. From the hips to the heels the
material employed is boxwood, fitted
with joints and bound with copper,
thus insuring flexibility, durability and
strength where they are. most needed in
a juror. The head is of - .basswood,
studded with brass-headed nails 'and
covered with railroad 'iron, which. is
riveted with bolts pas..ing through the
cranium. A sheathing of copper con.'
cears the bolt-heads", and .this in turn is
hidden by the - ordinary juror's expres=
sion of intelligence, skilfully applied by
emilient artists, who employ none but
the finest paint. The trunk of the in
veintion contains a rod nicely balanced
and hung in the centre. The mouth
, is provided with two tongues, on one of
which is painted in - bold characters
'Guilty,' and the other ,'Not guilty.'
These tongues are connected with the
balanced rod by two fine, stiff steel
wires. From either end of the red is.
suspended a large piece of cheese, and- :
when balanced, both tongues remain,
within the - mouth. The case is tried as
before the•average juror, the evidence'',
i carefully drawn out, the summing-up_
speeches made by the counsel and the
charges delivered by the court. When
the case is closed, a small rat is intro
duced into the trunk through a trap
and lockectup by the sheriff. The par
ties in action have then but to wait for
for the verdict. Sooner or later, accord
ing to the extent to which the facts
have beo2 disputed, the rat will eat one
of the piedes of cheese, - Which will al

Bakersfield, Vt.. Dec., 23, 189.
B. J. KENDALL a Co., Gents:—l wish to add my
testimony in favor of your invaluable liniment, -
"Kendal 's Spavin Cure." In the spring of 18E2
I slipped'on the ice and sprained my right limb
at the knee joint. I was very lame and 'at times
suffered the most excruciating pain. 1 wore a
bandage on it for a year, and tried most every
thing in my reach, but. could find nothing that
would give me permanent relief. When I over
worked, it would pain me very much.ln Apni
1878 I began to think I . should be a cripple for
life; but having some of "Kendall's Spavin Cure"
thought I would try it. I used one third of a
bottle, and experienced relief at once. The pain
left me and has not troubled me since. I feel
very grateful to you and: would recommend
-Kendall's Spavin Cure" to - all who suffer with
sprains or rheumatism,
