PUBLISHERS' NOTICES.

***Correspondence of every description for the INTELLIGENCER AND JOURNAL, should be addressed to it, (or to Howard M. Jenkins), at 921 Arch Street. John Comly’s address is now at 15th and Race Streets, and correspondence for him relating to Friends' Book-Store, or other of his business affairs, should be addressed there.

***Matter intended for insertion in the INTELLIGENCER AND JOURNAL Should reach us by Third-day evening, though notices or advertisements relating to affairs of immediate importance Tmay be used as late as the forenoon of Fourth-day. In order to reach our distant subscribers, the paper is now mailed on Fifthday, and must be closed at noon of the day preceding.

***No charge is made for publishing ordinary notices of marriages and deaths; on the contrary, we are very willing to receive and print them. Obituary notices we reserve the privilege to curtail or amend, and it is desired that brevity and suitability may always be carefully kept in view in their preparation.

*** A watchful supervision is exercised over the advertisements in this paper, and none which are not entitled to credit will be knowingly admitted. Advertisements of a low or doubtful character are, of course, rigidly excluded. The value of our advertising space is by this oversight materially enhanced, as the appearance of an announcement in the paper is, to a certain extent, evidence of its trustworthiness.

*** Attention of Our Subscribers is called to the fact that we Can Supply other publications, in connection with the INTELLIGENCER AND JOURNAL, at a discounted rate. We will take orders for a limited list of reputable periodicals, (weeklies and monthlies), and will furnish the rate of charge to any who wish to know with the view of ordering. Persons making up their lists of reading for 1886 should take this opportunity of reducing the cost. (See advertisement on another page.)

RIENDS CALENDAR FOR 1886–4 Calendar

for 1886, especially for the use of Friends, has been prepared, and is now ready for sale. It is a heavy card 9x11 inches, lithographed in handsome and appropriate design, with a medallion portrait of George Fox and a picture of Jordan’s Meetinghouse on the face, and a yearly Calendar on the reverse side. This card has attached in the centre a tablet, with a slip for each day in the year, giving the day of week and month, and a brief quotation from the writings of some one of the early Friends. In general style it is similar to the Longfellow, Bryant, and other Calendars, which have been so popular. It is believed that it will meet a want that has been felt in the homes of many Friends. A copy will be sent by mail, postage paid, on receipt of 60 cts. Address FERRIS BROS., PRINTERs,

A LAST PRAYER.

[Written by Helen Jackson (“H. H.”) four days before her
death.]
ATHER, I scarcely dare to pray,
So clear I see, now it is done,
That I have wasted half my day,
And left my work but just begun;

So clear I see that things I thought Were right or harmless were a sin;

So clear I see that I have sought, Unconscious, selfish aims to win;

So clear I see that I have hurt
The souls I might have helped to save,

That I have slothful been, inert,
I)eaf to the calls thy leaders gave.

In outskirts of thy kingdoms vast, Father, the humblest spot give me;

Set me the lowliest task thou hast, Let me repentant work for thee!

—The Century. August 8th.

EXTRACT FROM A SERMON BY J. J. CORNELL.1

S I sat under the weight and burden of the exercises of my brother, yesterday, I heard that voice that has been so often whispered in my inner ear, “I have a work for thee to do among thy sisters, on the morrow.” The impression has continued with me since, and I have come in obedience to that requirement. I am unprepared with anything to offer. He has not even allowed me to see, as has often been

the case, the character of the mission on which he

has sent me. On this occasion, there come before me some of you, mothers in Israel, who have long borne the burdens of the Society, and been deeply interested in its advancement. You are now approaching the end of your probation, and a deep anxiety for its prosperity weighs upon your mind. The young in life do not come up, as you deem, to the standard that is necessary. You are allowing a spirit of spiritual discouragement to rest upon you which is marring the peaceful decline of life with an undue anxiety. You are drawing away from that entire faith in, and dependence upon the Father which you now need, and would so much more need as you approach

* From a sermon by J. J. C., in the Women's Meeting, during the late Yearly Meeting, at Richmond, Indiana.

fitted to give them the food they require.

the end of life. I earnestly crave of you to continue to lean on that divine arm that has been with you in all your lives until now. We have known where young mothers have been taken from their families when they seemed most needed; and with their hearts given to God, we have known where there had been unshaken faith and confidence that “the Lord will take care of my lambs.” That arm that has gathered, has not been shortened that it cannot save, and can you not believe that he will care for these tender ones in your spiritual care 2 Lean more and more as your profession demands, upon that Divine arm. When you permit this discouragement to rest upon you, the example you set them is not calculated to bring them to the high standard to which you wish them to attain. By example you are saying to them, I have devoted my life to the service of my God who is not caring for me now. And the discouragement which is resting upon you is unfitting you to extend to these the counsel they need, just as when pressed by the burdens of life and every day cares you are unfitted to give your children the worldly advice they stand in need of. The same is true with regard to the young of this people. When you look upon the dark side, and go mourning on your way, you will be unCome, follow me, as I am following my master. Many times beneath the gay garment there beats a heart as truly desiring and endeavoring to follow him as yours or mine. Perhaps the things that trouble you have not yet been required of them to give up. Do not allow discouragement and undue anxiety to unfit you to give the advice and caution you desire to extend. To those in the middle-walk of life, who are going mourning on your way, under sorrows and afflictions which make you feel that life is void of that which brings enjoyment to your souls. Dear hearts, for this condition I can speak from my own experience. I know how the earnest cry of the spirit goes forth. The comfort that you once had, you no longer feel, and you are Sore afraid, trembling for your condition, not finding the comfort that you have had in the past. When the waves of trouble come over you, you are afraid. The master is in the ship. Turn to him. He will rise within you, and will say to the storms and Winds, “Peace, be still !” I know that he will rise. He is a present helper in every needful time. He will be found in this great tribulation. You are anxious that those around you shall embrace your own views. You think you see just what views
