Preface.

The following fragments of thought, suggested by a few casual remarks in a circle of friends, are presented to the reader from a conviction of their deep necessity at the present time.

If their subject or their application seem too every-day or common-place to some, the writer would reply, that on that ground mainly, under the Divine blessing, is the hope of their usefulness built-inasmuch as that which is personal and individual affects us more strongly than that which is general.

Let not Truth, therefore, be rejected, because she may make her appearance in a homely garb; let her be loved and embraced all the more ardently for her intrinsic worth, and honored all the more reverently for her simplicity. The “sparing of minutes” for God, for our fellow-men, and for our own souls, is a subject in which all are more or less concerned, many are deeply implicated : let all therefore who read, consider—and in many, may the seed “sown in weakness” be "raised in power."

" Hot a Minute to Spare." :

« Not A MINUTE TO SPARE may

be said to be the motto of the age in which we live ;-hurrying to and fro in the earth_travelling from north to south, and from east to west-every thing reckoned by time, rather than by space-science, art, machinery, all uniting to aid man in his efforts to redeem time, even down to the minutest article in common life;—such is the present state of the world!

Great blessings are flowing from this wonderful increase of speed, and likewise great evils. Was there ever any good thing that our common enemy did not pervert to the production of evil ? All good flows from the God of love and goodness. Satan's aim is to mar the works of the Creator.
