JANUARY, 1885.

EDITORIAL ADDRESS.

PERFORMANCE rather than promise is assuredly what will

best please the readers of the RAINBOW; and therefore it is the less to be regretted that at this moment it is impossible to put forth a complete editorial statement of principles, intentions, and desires, as regards the future conduct of this Magazine. At the same time it would seem to be quite a becoming thing that one assuming the serious responsibility of editorship in continuance of the long and able services of the late much beloved and much lamented Editor, should have a few words to say to his readers. It is hoped that, as far as may be under the circumstances, these words will prove to be assuring.

It is at once and distinctly proposed to make this periodical in the future the exponent of the two leading truths for which it has contended in the past; the two truths, namely, of the Lord's Premillennial Advent, and of what has come to be pretty generally designated "Life in Christ." As respects these two subjects, viewed in their broad outlines, it is not proposed to make any, even the slightest, difference. If the smallest divergence should become perceptible in the editorial attitude towards these themes, it will be in a direction which, in the nature of things, promises to satisfy the great majority of the readers of the Magazine. That is to say, there is known to be a feeling among the more responsible supporters of the RAINBOW that it should more than ever concentrate its strength on the leading themes to which it is devoted, leaving side issues just a little in the shade. At all events, it is with a distinct conception of the wisdom and prudence of this course that the incoming editor-not without a degree of fear and trembling-puts his hand to his responsible, and (he may add) unsought-for task. In short, concentration, simplification, aggression, these are the watchwords which commend themselves for editorial guidance: concentration, as already explained; simplification, because experience shows that babes must have milk, strong
