Attendance at the five-day Missionary meetings just held at Highland Church, Louisville, taxed the capacity of the house. Brother Janes gave instructive and stirring lantern lectures each night, and a dozen other Louisville preachers took part. The walls and classrooms were used for interesting exhibits of hundreds of oriental articles connected with missionary life. Generous offerings and pledges were made toward the fund to build homes for missionaries .in Japan. Why not plan such a "Missionary Institute" in your congregation?

Some noble workers in this little band, whose zeal is very helpful and encouraging."- Willis H. Allen.

 

From Lachoochee, Fla.: "I have asked Bro. L. K. Harding·, of Henning, Tenn., to come to Lachoochee to hold a meeting. He has agreed. Lachoochee is a new town, growing rapidly.
