It is matter of great satisfaction, for
which we am bound l thank God always,
that the missionaries of our two churches
have, fioin the beginning, maintained tlio
most cordial relations as co-laborer in all
the Held abroad in which they have had
a common work. In Japan and ilrs7.il tho
missionaries of lho two churches, with lho
native Chrirtian under their care, have
united to form. In each country, a scpnrnto
Presbyterian Church. In China, measures
hsvo lieen Ailoplcd looking to tho sumo
end. It may be regarded as tho estab
lished policy of thetwo churches that their
missionaries should, III every field whero
their work Is contiguous, unite In planting
and developing one Presbytoriin Church,
having no ecclesiastical connectiun with
cither church in the United States,
In view of those facts It is recommended
that the General Assemblies ol tho two
churches counsel the pcnplo undor their
rare to avail themselves of the missionary
literature of both churches, that thry may
thus have a full and Intelligent view ol the
f;reat work in which thev are happily co

Tho committee representing tho General

to conduct their homr mission work as to
prevent antagonism or hurtful rivalry, and
to avoid even the appearance, on tl.o part
uf either, of interfering with the work of

permit them to sever their connection. In

insane when hu went to the asylum, and
on his arrival wus asked by an attendant
named 1xk if hu was tus.ine. He said bo
"Well," replied lHk, "wo will havo

"Then he knocked mo dow n and kicked
mo in tho body and mouth, and kicked
two teeth out. 'l tried lo cover my face by
getting my head beneath a Is'iieh. My
arm was over it and through a space in tho

Ih-iicIi over to get ano lu r kick nt my (ace.
In doing this my arm was broken."
Hill rolled op his right tout slcevo nnd
showed iilsmt three niches below the

"Ihey Uin s ki-it me down again," con
tinued Hid, "nnd bioke uno ol my ribs.
My arm caused mo greut pain uud 1 bad

'I .el me aeo that urin,' nnd he lure my cout

told me that il 1 dared lo show it ho would
