Look for your expiration notice under the front cover, if your time is out. Prompt renewals mean more to us now than ever before, since the advance in printing costs. The price is $1 per year, 75 cents each in.clubs of four or more. “Take hold almost anywhere and lift.”

      From Paul C. Young, Minneapolis—“We need helpers to make possible a tent-meeting campaign this summer. If you have not aided up here, write me for facts concerning this destitute field.”

     Meetings conducted by some of Louisville preachers recently: R. H. Boll, Green’s Chapel Church, Horse Cave, Kentucky, one week; Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, one week. E. L. .Jorgenson, Parkland Church, Louisville, one week. Don Carlos Janes, short meetings in a number of western states.

     From Albert T. Hamiter, Mulat, Florida; “I am evangelizing from Pensacola to River Junction. This is almost a spiritual desert, along the line of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad; but I have found a few zealous brethren here who are making a sacrifice in order to help sow the seed of the Kingdom in this mission field.”

     The Burnett Avenue Church (col.), heretofore a mission of the Highland Church, Louisville, is being greatly blessed of God under Brother Bowser’s enthusiastic leadership. Five adults recently confessed Christ and were baptized.

      The demand for the Lesson Quarterly, second quarter, passed1 all expectations and all previous orders, so that we were not able to supply the late comers. Order early for the third quarter. A number of new schools are beginning the use of this excellent Help. WORD AND WORK 137 Some are helping to circulate Brother McCaleb’s good leaflet “How may Christians go and preach.” “It is the best I have ‘ ever read on the subject,” writes one of the “circulators.” Other gifts and helpers are needed.

     Maurice Clymore’s home church, Vienna, Il., is sending him out to preach at surrounding points.

     Stanford Chambers writes from New Orleans: “For the month of March I received and turned over to the French Mission work as follows: For Brother Hebert, $127.40; for the two helpers, $55. This does not include New Orleans’ March contribution of $6.50. Every message from Brother Hebert tells of new conversions, and this too in spite of the fact that his helpers, Brethren Prather and Newman and all of Brother Hebert’s children had the ‘Flu.’ Satan has done his utmost to hinder, but a Mightier has given victory. Pray for the French work.

     “We are in the thick of tent-seat making and other preparations for New Orleans meetings, and will be responsible for someone else having a little more space in Word and Work this time.”

     “I am meeting with much encouragement in the west. Am visiting churches where I have never been before and being cordially received by all. I remain here (Amarillo, Tex.,) over Sunday, and next week finish up in Texas. Will go to Wichita and Harper, then perhaps into Oklahoma.” J. M. McCaleb. “I am trying to start Bible classes at a school-house near Millerton, Okla. C. C. Merritt will be here next week, and perhaps we can organize a church.” L. H. Merritt.

     In a private letter, A. S. Croom writes from Harper, Kan.: “School closes in four weeks. We have had a successful year. Not counting the Expression Department, we enrolled two hundred and fifty-five. Prospects for the coming year are good.”

      In a letter from Brother Janes which was not written for publication are some sentences which are worth publishing just the same. He is speaking of a hard western trip; “I went mainly to meet the two sisters and encourage them till we can add some men and start the regular worship. I am glad I made the hard trip for their sakes. The audience was small and I preached on being faithful. As we returned the weather was milder, but it was late and I got right up from supper and I and another fellow went on ahead. My, but it was a long road! I got tired of sitting in the narrow box and towards the end got up and jumped about for my feet’s sake. After a while the light shone, but even then it was a good piece to the house. I got in and told the brethren to sing and have a prayer while I went back and warmed my feet. I was pretty well worn out, but pulled through it all just the same. Not a line of this is complaint. I am standing the trial first rate. I would not want you to think I am suffering. I am with people who want to hear, who have been neglected, who need attention, and let us be glad for a chance to endure a little hardness for His sake who endured the agonies of Calvary.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
