The Surgical Dressing class comple
ted the course on Saturday morning,
and a written and oral examination
was had. The class began with 20,
but for unavoidable reasons, some were
not able to finish the course, after do
ing several days of special work. Tue
work done by the class was sufficient,
andover to supply a first order box and
well filled box was marked "Excel
lent," by the Instructor Miss Guignard.
This is the highest mark. "Fine" is
2nd and "Very good, " 3rd, so the mern
Ibers of the class felt fully repaid for
their painstaking work. Standing the
examination was like unto school days,
and some said thay experienced the
same feelings of class room days, but
when papers were returned, every one
bore "Excellent." The following are
now qualified to instruct: Mesdames J.

Letter from Rev. John Lake.
The following letter was received
from Rev. John Lake by Mr. A. S.
Tompkins, and will be of interest to
April 1, 1918.
Dear Mr. Tompkins,
After I had answered your last
and much appreciated letter, I re
ceived the minutes of the 1917 Edge
field Baptist Asssociation, which you
so thoughtfully sent me, and now
comes a copy of the 1914 minutes
from you. I greatly appreciate your
thoughtfulness, I assure you, and it
is a joy indeed to keep up with the
work of the Lord in the dear old
home county and association I love
so well. This mail also brought from
the Secretaries the minutes of the
State Convention. These, with the
Baptist Courier, help me to see how
the work of our churches goes on
in the dear old Palmetto State.
They and the other papers, county,
state and national, that I am priv
ileged to see, make this voluntary
life-time banishment of mine less a
banishment-though but for the
Master's sake I never would ' have
come, and Pd never have stayed, yet
I hope to go to heaven from China.
This is not that I love China more
than America, but that I feel that
China needs me more and that my
little life, spent here, will mean most
for the Kingdom of God.
It is indeed a privilege to help lay
the foundations of the work among
a people numbering probably 400,
000,000 and to feel that the people
are really and truly responding to |
the claims of Christ. There are weak
Christians here as well as in all lands
and China has peculiar weaknesses, j
tco, yet I feel that after all these
years I have seen enough to more
than justify all the toil in such a eli-1
mate and the separation from friends
and loved ones at home.
Yesterday we made out our quar
terly report to the Board at Rich-1
mond and which showed that in !
churches which Wife and I look aft
er here in Canton city, and in other j
cities, there are 717 members, who, .
last year gave $5,500.00 m this mon-,
ey, about $3,500.00 that would be j
in United States currency, and there I
were 110 baptisms. Many of them I,
baptized myself. Some were baptized
by Chinese pastors whom I helped J
to ordain, and who are supported ?
in part by the native Baptists, part- j
ly with the money given through me j
by the Foreign Mission Board, that
is given by you brethren and sisters,
week by week and year by year.
Compare these figures in the re
port of one man and his wife with
the reports from some whole associa
tions in the home land, and when you
consider that China is a heathen
land, and is so backward and poor,
there is much to make us thank God
and take courage-it means to me
that the work is really taking root.
Tonight we begin our quarterly
preachers' Institute here in Canton,
and the nearly thirty preachers and
colporters that I personally look after
and encourage will all be there, I
trust. What a time of conferring and
exhorting and planning between ses
sions we do have at these meetings.
Then when it is over, Wife and I
hope to start on our regular rounds
of the churches and chapels and
schools in our field.
We travel so much in native craft,
overland, sometimes afoot, for Chi
na's transportation facilities are far
and far away behind those of coun
tries like America, but in it all, and
often amid robbers and pirates, and
while China is still in revolution,
we feel safe.
We are praying much for your
dear boys-yours and those of all
our dear friends at home, as they
endure greater physical privations
and dangers in France. God give us
a righteous and lasting peace.
Our love to you and yours and all

I will have a lot of pianos in the store next to L. T.
May's grocery store, and will sell from June 5 to the 15
Pianos have advanced the last few months from 15 to
20 per cent in price. I bought some months ago and
can sell these pianos at only twent-five dollars over what
the same instruments sold for six or eight years ago.
An Adam Schaaf, which sold some years since for
three hundred and fifty dollars, is now only three hun
dred and seventy-five dollars.
Owing to the thirty per cent reduction in the out put
of pianos prices will advance still further in the next
six or eight months. I piano that can now be bought
for four hundred dollars will of necessity have to be
sold for five hundred dollars by January 1, 1919. *
I have the famous ADAM SCHAAF piano on hand.
Accommodating terms can be secured if desired.
I also handle a fine line of other makes, and my prices
are as low as can be obtained anywhere. Call and see
my entire stock.
I will also have two competent piano tuners on hand
fully prepared to do any kind on pianos.
Orders or inquiries may be left at the office of this
paper up to June 15.

American troops, Harry E. V. Brit
tain, secretary o? che English branch
of the Pilgrims' Club, told the Royal
Colonial Institute last night. If the
Germans do not give in, he added,
the number of American troops will
be increased to any amount necessary
Sir Charles P. Lucas, former head
of the Dominion's department at
the colonial office, said he wondered
if the Germans realized what the en
try of America into the war meant.
It meant, he said, not only the ac
cession to the Allied Powers of many
millions of fighting men and the ad
dition of vast resources, but also the
coming in of the only one amongst
the great peoples of the world who
have seen and carried through to an
unmistakable issue a four years' war. j
The United States, asserted Miss j
Higgins of the American labor dele
gation, had answered the call of the
blood. England had a wonderful in
spiration and the heart of America
was full of gratitude for what Eng
land's sons had achieved.
