ity churchy were held for the
discussion of parochial missions and
other topics of interest to the clergy
of the diocese. AH of the clergy that
were in the city were present at the
meeting and a few were asked to give
talks on . the' various phases of paro
chial mission work. The meeting
opened with the usual form of service
and after this Dean W. C. H. Moore,
formerly dean of Trinity Episcopal
church of Quincy, and now financial
agent of Jubilee college, spoke on "The
Preparation for Missions." He said
that too much time is spent in the
preparation of missions and that the
people lose -all interest VheJv so much
time.' is taken. The -.'effective way of
preparation is for the. priest to preach
to the "people" and make known the ef
fects that missions have. "Let the
people understand the objects of mis
sion work. Meetings should be well
advertised and to show that an inter
est is taken the attendance at the
meetings should be made known to
the public." - '
On M itf nn 'Music.
Rev. Mr. Diggs was the next , to
speak. His subject was "Mission Mu

and the first Christians were bound
together in a sweet ami sacred fellow
ship of "Christian fellowship and love
and charity which gave the joyful in
spiration to their whole life. This
arcstolic fellowship was the secret of
the growth and strength of the Chris
tian church in its 'early days. It was
the" motive power which impelled the
missionaries of the cross to go mn into
our lands and win souls for Christ. It
was the principle which inspired the
Knights Templar and all of the knight
ly orders of the mid'ile ages. It. was
the foundation principle of the trades
and all the labor organizations of the
Srrrt of Strencth.
"The apostles' doctrine was of vital
Importance, but the apostles' fellow
ship was equally important and was
the secret of the church's growth and
strength. Have we not lost in modern
times, some of the genial wants of
Christian love? Have not the divisions
of Christianity resulted in the loss of
much of the original fervor of Chris
tian charity? Shall we not strive to
restore to the church of today some
thing of that sweet and sacred fellow-
people much quicker than an outsider.
"To make it more successful, though
the mission should be conducted by
two priests, because it is realiy a phy
sical strain on one man. Then, too, no
one man is so constituted that he is
equally approachable by all persons,
therefore have two missionaries where
it is possible."

The sermons for mission work weredis
cussed by Dr. Percival of Peoria. He dis
cussed the subject from the point of
view of the clergyman, and gave sug
gestions for making the sermons most
effective. Rev. Thomas Heinz, for a
number of .years Wesleyan minister in
England, talked on the subject of re
sults of missions. Te object he said
is the dissemination of pure religion
and the first result the conversion of
the members. Rev. Wyllys Rede, dean
of the St. John's Cathedral of Quincy,
spokeof the after effects from pare)
chial missions. Hubert Carleton, gen
eral secretary of the Brotherhood of
St. Andrew, the last speaker, stated
that he believed that the priest should

of outstanding bonds had just been

paid off in 1904, and $15,000 in 1905.

The work of restoring the old Dav

senal is now well under way, and the
werii of tearing down has been com
pleted. Only three of the chimneys
and the walls of the main part of the
house are left standing. The porch
on the river side of the building has
been removed and the one story L's on
the other three sides are also gone.
A good start has alst) been made on
the work of reconstruction. New stone
piers are being built under the house
to take the place ot the old enies,
which have largely crumbled away.!
Hafters have been placed acrt)ss the

projectile has a cupped hollow. A six

through armor of the sa ne thickness
