Pleaso allow m1) Space in your

touching the questions asked by
tLho Brother Baptist in your last
It soeims to my mind when a
preacher is called to sup)ly a
clurch that he should he the head
or leader 'of that body, as Overy
body has or sBould havo but one
head, and every organiza' ion shoud
have but one leader. If a church
desires services twice a imonth (or
oftener) she can compensate her
pastor according to his services, or
accoiding to his iioods. This is,
according to my mui d, the plan
and ?,las as set forth by the Divine
Creator, and Counsellor and Con.
ductor of all goodness. This rule
is sot forth in tho 25th chapter of
'-t. Johl's Gospel, under the Para
blo of the vine. One vino sup
ports each and every branch of the
vine; and ono branch supports
each and every leaf of the branch.
