SUMMER HYMN.

HE year draws near its golden-hearted prime, Fulfilled of grandeur rounded into grace; We seem to hear sweet notes of joyance chime From elfin bells through many a greenwood place.

The Sovereign summer, ribbed and garlanded,
Looks, steeped in verdure, up the enchanted skies;

A crown, sun-woven, round her royal head,
And love's warm languor in her dreamy eyes.

We quaff our fill of beauty, peace, delight;
But mid the entrancing scene a still voice saith:

“If earth, heaven's shadow, shows a face so bright,
What of God’s summer past the straits of death 77°

—Paul Hamilton Hayne.

For Friends' Intelligencer and Journal.

THE SPIRIT OF THE QUERIES.

WHAT are the vital principles of our Society, and we bear a living testimony to them 2 It may be said that there is but one vital principle, and that is the inspeaking voice of God. Grant this to be correct, and the foundation of all our faith, yet there are many branches to the parent tree, and these cluster around in such close proximity that they must be claimed to be of it. Some think that a part of our queries have become obsolete, and the issues are a thing entirely of the past, but let us closely examine them and see if we really have fulfilled the spirit of them. By comparing several of the Disciplines of the different Yearly Meetings, we find that they run so nearly parallel that the import is the same. These rules and regulations were, I believe, established by the power and under a living sense of the gospel light, and the life our predecessors lived was in accordance with these testimonies, and having a godly care over each other in every particular, these queries were framed that all might come to understand the relation they sustained to the body; and we find that a portion of each meeting, once a month, was devoted to this self examination. I say self examination, for so it must have appeared to them, and it will soappear to us, if we attain to an experimental knowledge of that which brought them forth. First, they sought to ascertain whether all their meetings were attended by the members, and whether each was seeking, “to put himself in the way of good”; in a condition to receive the illumination by this inner Spirit of God; and if so did they profit by it, and thus maintain that love and fellowship becoming

the profession they made? How are we of to-day in this respect 2 • * The next care was in seeking to find how much they were imbued with the grace, and truth of the gospel light which would enable them to observe simplicity in all the stations of life. Do we individually examine ourselves in this way and labor to comport with the high standard of the christian light? All these queries must come home to us if we are profited by them. Intemperance was queried after fifty years ago, and yet are all the members of this Society clear of the effects now? And do we discourage the use of tobacco 2 Are there any now selling these injurious articles and living off of the profits to the ruin of other homes? Oh, let us be wise and look with guarded eye to our influence that the pure principles of christian reform may not receive a blemish at our hands. What have we to say concerning attending places of diversion and unprofitable amusement? Have wenot as much need to attend to all these responsibilities as they had 2 It is very necessary that we look well to the ways of our own household that we maintain pure christian love, pure gospel light, denouncing all that in any way is a detriment to our physical or Spiritual progress. We also see how desirous they were to be faithful in their testimony regarding the ministry, that it prove itself, and be supported alone by the power of the Divine mind, in their lives and labors; and also againstall oppression, against taking Oaths or military Service, prize goods and lotteries. While we are not pressed with military service, yet there remains to be a need of watching close the Spirit we are of, and what examples we set on occasions that call for a display of military parades, in allowing our children to participate or be present, without expressing our concern for their safety and the maintenance of the peace principles. Today all over our land is an organized band, who drill, and keep nursing the spirit which inflames the youthful mind in the dazzling glory of the soldier life and a desire to bestow an honor on the military post, and it needs a watchful care to move aright. When the clause relative to prize goods was placed there, it of course referred to those captured on the high Seas and though perhaps there is none of these now, yet there is a species of prize goods of wide spread danger, all over the country. It comes to every city, town, and village, is connected in every department of trade—dry goods, groceries, hardware, jewelry, stationery, &c. Great inducement is offered that double the value of our money will be given and the article is selected by a ticket, which we cannot know what we are getting until the parcel is bought. Nor do we for one moment think that any one will give us one dollar's worth for fifty cts, or do we want them to ? Ah, there is a deception somewhere, and a prize is offered us to partake of this deception. Can we as concerned christian people, laboring for the maintenance of truth and justice, be participants in such a trade 2 I feel a deep concern that we all uphold the vitalizing principle of a religion that was ushered in through self-sacrifice and an earnestness for the upbuilding of the true church of God. This surely is no dead letter. They queried as to their membership being careful to live within the bounds of their circumstances. And here again comes the force of the truth before us, are we so eager to keep pace with those that have abundance of wealth, that we enter too far on the costly and superfluous adornment of our bodies and the furnishing of our houses, and thus sacrifice the pure life? There are so many avenues to guard that the lusts of the flesh do not overpower the tender plants of Divine wisdom. All these must be examined often if we prosper in the right. I desire that none be hasty to cast aside any of the law till all be fulfilled. There is a great work to do on the walls of our city and may we like faithful Nehemiahs not be decoyed down from our high principles and noble standard on account of the various opinions regarding the different paths we may tread to this principle. Remember, it is the little foxes that spoil the tender vines. Some convey the idea that there is no spirituality in these queries, I realize that 'tis a delicate point to touch upon the intricate organization of our being; yet I maintain that if we enjoy the true moral status and the natural wants for the body, we must have all our dispositions and propensities governed by the grace and truth of God. Here then these become a complex organism, but always allowing a superiority to the spiritual seed. Hence these queries have reference to our moral standing, granting them subservient to the inner law of God. I view them as the highest type of inquiry relative to our moral and spiritual advancement, and until we have arrived at a standard above them we

cannot consider them obsolete. - MARY G. SMITH, Boopeston, 7th month 6th, 1885.

A LETTER TO G. WYNEDD PREPARATIVE MEETING.

[L. W. F., being deprived, by reason of a long and painful illness, from mingling in social worship with her friends, felt drawn a few days previous to her death to dictate to them the following tender epistle, which was read at the preparative meeting on the day of her funeral.]

O Gwyn EDD PREPARATIVE MEETING OF WOMEN
FRIENDS :

It has been a long time, dear sisters, since I mingled with you in your little mid-week gatherings; and now that I feel it is not probable I shall ever meet with you there again, it is in my heart to send you a little greeting. My love goes out to each one of you, older and younger. Your number has become Small,

but “grow not weary in well doing,” dear sisters, but in Seasons of discouragement remember the promise: “Where two or three are gathered in my name there am I in the midst of them.” Remember also, it is to those who hold out to the end the crown is given. Therefore, endeavor to be faithful to this duty ; it will afford you comfort and strength as it did me when I mingled with you so pleasantly—so sweetly. I would have you remember, too, the absent, the sick and afflicted, the weary ones, who are pressed down with the burden of home cares, who do not meet with you on account of these ;-the isolated ones, whose situation is such there seems to be no way for them to meet with you. O, visit these dear sisters, and cheer their hearts by the light of your countenances, it will be to them an evidence that they are not forgotten by their friends, nor by the divine Father who knoweth their needs, and has led your steps to their homes, and raised up the encouraging feeling, although they seem unable to go forth as many are. Yet, “They too may serve who only stand and wait.” Dear sisters, as I dictate this I seem to stand almost on the threshold of another world, and I felt to leave this little legacy of tender feeling to you, for I have loved you with no common love, and have felt your companionship, your affection, to strengthen and comfort me in the long Seaso II of assiiction through which I have had to pass. Farewell, dear sisters in the truth. LYDIA W. Foulke.

THE IMMORTALITY OF LOVE. Noog is so completely beyond the power of death as a noble love.

Under that strange touch, love in its inmost recesses kindles and glows with a diviner life

Whom of the living do we love as we do our dead? Whom else do we hold so sacredly and so surely 7 Not as a memory of a lost past. Nothing in our present is so real as they, and towards our unknown future wego with a great and solemn gladness, beckoned by their presence.

Through them duty is most sacred to us, and in them we are strong to labor and endure, and for their sakes to learn to love all others.

It is the sense of their mingling with all beauty that makes the earth glow to our eyes with the light that never was on sea or land. It is their love that becomes to us the surest pledge and deepest experience of the goodness of God.

Love slain by death Ž It does not come to its full stature till death's hand is laid upon it. Its bond is but half tested till it spans the gulf between the seen and unseen worlds. Its service is incomplete till it has vanquished in our hearts the fear of the grave, and taught us how “death is swallowed up in victory.”—Selected.

FAITH FUL prayer always implies correlative exertion; and no man can ask honestly and hopefully to be delivered from temptation, unless he has himself honestly and firmly determined to do the best he can to keep out of it.—John Ruskin.
