eeiptsof the treasury have been larger than

many thousands ot people, ami tidings

627.30. This is $11,572.72 more than

nnd to analyze the receipts of the year,

ruther disappointing, as the contribu

ceipts from legacies this Inst year, it will
oc seen, were large; nnu nan it nor oven
for the increase of resources trout this di
rection, the work would have been placed
in a painful strait. The goodness ol God
must lie gratefully recognized in provid
ing by tin means for till the needs ol his
service. At the same time the experi
ence of the year renders it necessary to
consider now why the receipt from or
dinary sources did not increase us in the
it must oe noted, irmicnrst pincc, inni
there was a marked fulling off in the gen
eral receipts during theclosing months of
tne year, i ne reason ior tms is not uir
to leek. According to the schedule ol
illeclioiis adopted hy the last General
Assembly there were, from October to
May six months monthly collections
for other branches ol chinch work, and
none for Foreign Missions; whereas, in
the years immediately preceding there
were, in the month of February, special
freewill offerings for this cause. Accord
ing to the present schedule the propor
tion of collections allowed to Foreign
Missions is less than in. the earlier days
of the history of out church. At the out
set there were four collections in the year
for sustentation, one; lor education,
one; for publication, one; for Foreign
Missions, one. Then Foreign Missions
had oiic-l'oiirth of all the collection or
dered Ivy the (iencrnl Assembly. When
we consider the magnitude and import
ance of the work, surely this proportion
must seem small enough. Yet, ac
cording to theschcilule adopted by tile last
General Assembly, ten collections were
ordered for various branches of the work
ut home, mid only two collections for the
work abroad. That is, Foreign Mis
sions, instead of having one-fourth of the
collections, ns ut first, has now only one
sixth, In view of this slate of of tilings,
it is not surprising that the receipts from
the church for this work failed to make
the usual advance.
It is confidently believed that there
wns no intention on the part of the last
General Assembly to diminish the oppor
tunities ullowcd to this great work. On
the contrary, the deep interest felt in the
HOME AND FOREIGN
work by the church in cenernl, and the
iiicrcitHiiu; tokeiiHof the favor of our Lord
in giving it enlargement and prosperity,
would all creule the expectation thut the
opportunities' tor contributing to this
cause should be multiplied rather than
decreased. In view ot these facts the cx
ecutive committee would now respect'
lully petition this Ucncral Assembly to
restore to the cause of Foreign Missions
the proportion ol collection which ex
isted in the beginning. II' there are to he
monthly collections in the churches let
this cause have at least three of them
that is, another collection besides the
two now ordered for May and October,
In this day it is scarcely necessary to re
mark that the enlargement of the For
eign Mission work ot llie cliurcu means
no diminution oi'lhe work at home. So far
Iroin this, all experience has shown that
as the church goes forward boldly and
with increasing lilicrality to win the
Ileal lien to Christ, the blessing of the
Master comes to lu r in all her work at
When the church is following the lead
ership of her King in his work of evan
gelizing the world, she may lie sure that
every nee 1 of this service will be fully
supplied, it is with n bold confidence
she may go forward, knowing that her
career will be conquering and to conquer,
flic signal tokens which our own church
has received of the faithfulness of her divine
Master may well inspire her with this
courage. Take but one example. Five
years ago it was proposed to establish n
mission in Japan. '1 lie proposal called
forth many expressions of doubt and
even of strong dissent, it was urged
that our church already had m hand as
much work as she could prudently under
take. It was declared that the establish
ment of a mission in Japan would tend
to deprive the missions already estab
lished of the support which was their
due. Hut to those who were in a condi
tion to take a lull view ol the situation,
the indications seemed plain that it was
the will of the Lord that our church
should send her representatives to the
Island Kmpirc of Asia. The mission was
lM'gua;and what have been the result!'
To-day our church has in Japan sixteen
missionaries, occupying lour important
stations, and preaching the gosiel to
hundreds of thousands of m-ople, who.
Inn for this enterprise, would Ik- almosl
without the bread of hie; for in .ill Japan
there is but one missionary to eeerv
100,000 of the people. Within the last
year our missionaries in this field have
baptised 151 adult, and the youiie
churches under their care now manlier
700 communicants. Vci.li.is tais blessed
work detracted ai.ythiug from the inter
est mid success ol our other missions:
IS v no inctiis the iilcssmg ol imii on

For each one ol her inisM n fields, in
deed, the church does well to give heed
to Hie command. "Liu up llu.ie eves
round about, and behold." Fach of
them has its own atlrnctivciu-ss. From
each of t hem comes siieeinl tidings ol
good. It v recent letters Iroin Mexico we

Mr. urnvlnll had done not lung more in
Mexico than to gather this jewel from

that if all the money contributed by our
church to forcgin missions had accom

hiirch would have her full reward.
So we may turn to the work in China.

work among these people. And Iroin the

In all things the Master has given our
hiirch the lutihist encouragement to go
forward, it is his pleasure lo choose the
weak things ol the earth for the highest
iiiunifcstalions of his glory, nnd, though
nr church be one ol the smaller ot the
households of faith, vet if she wait stead

MISSION TO AI'KICA.
The last General Asscmblv in response
to an overture Asking for the early es
tablishment of a mission in the Congo
Free Slate, nislt acted the Lxcctitivc
Committee lo establish n mission in Afri
ca as sjiccdilv ns practicable. Two min
isters ollcrcd themselves lor this service
the Kev. S, N. Lupslcv, of the Synod ol
Alabama, and the Kev. W. II. Shcppurd,
a graduate of Tuskaloosa Institute, huv-
ig charge ol ii colored cnureu in Atlanta.
The Synod of Alabama, ut its meeting hi
the fall, passed u resolution expressing
gratitude to God that Mr. I.npslcy hail
illeren nmisell as a missionary to Airicn,
nnd "most rcsicctitilly anil earnestly
urged upon the committee his appoint
laiiliUMiAtja. .i'riai i AiWalA.-
ment to this work." Mr, Sheppard had
declined u tempting opportunity from
another riunrter to lie sent as a mission'
ary to Africa because he wished to go out
in connection with ourown church. For
ten years it has been his earnest wish to
go ns a missionary to his own race in
Africa, mid at one tunc he visited Haiti
more to comer with the committee on
this subject. With these facts belore
them, the executive committee found thut
the condition of the treasury in January
would justify the sending out of the two
brethren. 1 here seemed, therefore, but
one course to pursue: "Assnredly gather
ing that the Lord had called us to preuc
the gospel" unto the icople of Africa, the
committee resolved to send Mr. Lapslcy
ana Air. Micppard to that land.
The two brethren, nfter their nppoint
incut, spent a lew weeks in visiting some
ol our churches, and the marked impres
sion produced by these visits made it
seem a matter ol regret that they could
not have been more widely extended
The missionaries sailed from New York

structcd to ascertain the most elligible
site for a new mission station in West

should be sufficiently separated fromoth

possible, be in a healthy locality, nroba
bly on the highlands removed from the
coast, und yet not too distant from
the base ol supplies. It should be among
a population large enough to constitute
a good mission field, and sing a lan
gunge which is widely current. In select
lug a station the preference should be
given to the Congo Free State, yet, if it
should npieiir to the missionaries that

After having made such careful inquiry
