Another kind of lies are those told, in
conducting , husiqeds matters , sometimes
by the buyer, sometimes by the seller,
and frequently by all. It is a common
thing, for rnen,. to . mai; - to tec ,high
terra of the , article whiCh they „midi, to
sell, and hi too low terms of whet, they
wish to buy. As long ago as in thitdityd'of

tells he .thaythern Pthe, tuy'er twar a dihmitothed
to say, "t'Ws.lhau g ht;,•'cier, nalightl,'?' but

Besides this want of holiest truthfulness
in regard to the value of articles 'bought
and, sold, there is another very common sin
amongst men in their business matters.% t•lt
is the promising payment soon or at a flied
dwe l t without any reasonable expectation of
fulfilling such engagement. Persons in
easy oireumstanees are not under so great
temptation ,to this sin, and they should be
thankful' that they are not. A failure to
iulfill promises of, payment, may eubjeetthe whore .the promises are made to great
inconvenience or loss, and it is disgraceful
and wicked for any,,pue, willingly to . disap•
point expectations which, be has raised in
this way. In such 'matters every one ought
to aim at making " his word as ,F 1 9 04 all. Pis

There are other kinds of lies besides those
mentioned, to sonic of , which it might be
well enough to refer.., Sometimes persons
are guilty of this sin when acme one
impertinently or impudently pries into
toatiert4 that do trot concern him, and
which he has no *right to know. To
rid ourselves of one who thus sln o Y B
us, we' lir r e not at liberty to answer
him by falsehood. It is infinitely better to
offend sueliAn impertinent questioner, by a
bold'answer, than to offend God, on snob an
occasion, by resorting to untruth.
Jocular lies are sometirnes told to deceive
for a, Erfurt time, in matters of little import
ance, for the sake of amusement. These
should be indulged in very sparingly, or
rather, not at all. Tratiiis too sacred to be
trifled with.
o.4Rcioue lies ere told to children and

I ,shall never.forget, an incident that no-,
tarred in my„travels. through ,Northern,

the'eyes of a number of persons in all parts

the house. They' '
did not seem to, 'knee,'
what to, make of me. Some, as I afterwards
learned, suspected: that I was a JeW;- others
set me down for a Frenchman, or a Ger.

the Gospel. , Nor would they' , ever nave

to make myself known. In a Short time,
the preacher entered the pulpit, `and 'after%
the usual genufleation, commenced the ser.
vices. I knelt with the congregation, and
could inwardly say r, Aniehi'toihis genuine
Calvinistic •prayer. The text , was,, taken
from the last chapter in Revelation :- " And
the ,Spirit. and theairide say, porae.". As I.
went to chureb . for, edifiestion and.. not to
