TRAVELER stood one day by the supposed resting place of John Calvin. Only a small stone marks the spot. As the visitor meditated upon the uncertainty of the tradition which designates this as the great man's tomb, he turned to the guide and said, " Well, John Calvin is dead; that is certain." " Dead ? " responded the guide. " Yes, dead here; but, my dear friend, he lives everywhere ! " It is immeasurably truer of Jesus. They crucified the Lord of Glory, but he lives everywhere. By the manifestation of his grace in human hearts, by his spiritual dominion over the civilization of the age, Jesus is every-where. It is the perpetual miracle of history.
