their co-operation does show that they are one with us in this particular sympathy. Our Magazine does, we humbly believe, exhibit a high ground of Christian action, the laying down of unselfish principles, and the tracing of all true impulses to the love of Christ.

To all who write, we earnestly say, Remember, what is written remains. Your pen is not at rest when you have replaced it in the inkstand; it is still writing, in golden characters, or in fiery symbols, on the destinies of the many years to come!

You may read carelessly, yet how know you but some little word shall bury itself, like a seed in your mind, and by and by shall have a harvest of rich blessing, or, by your perversion of its influence, of luxuriant mischief ? Take care what you read and how you read.
To all our friends, we venture to say, If you judge our Magazine calculated to benefit youth, promote its circulation, and thereby aid to banish from our literature the reading which is distilling deadly poison into many a youthful heart. Remember, what is written, and what is read, remains.
