Second. Because of the truth of the finding of the Standing Committee on Publication and Sabbath School Work that "Many of our schools are graded, but the training and missionary departments are largely neglected." Third. Because our Foreign Mission Board has asked a definite missionary service in all our schools this year, and that, in order to deal intelligently with this request. a?studv of this particular field is necessary.

MISSOURI. I.awMon: Rev. Mr. Lynn H. Ross, of Jackson, Mo., preached to two good congregations here on the 17th of October. In the afternoon Mr. Ross spoke to the Sunday-school for colored people, which is taught at the church building by a company of consecrated young ladies of the congregation. At the close of the sermon three of the colored people made professions of their faith in Christ, and were received on examination into the mem bersbip of the church. This is good work for the benefit of a needy people, and makes for the extension of the kingdom. L. P. R. NORTH CAROLINA. Newton Presbyterian Church: The communion of the Lord's Supper was observed in the church at the morning service on October 17th, at which time the pastor spoke on, "Why We Observe the Lord's 8upper." Three promising young men were received into full membemhlp in the church on profession of faith, and were welcomed at that service. There aeema to be a gradual but ateady growth in the church, members being received frequently through the year without the aid of protracted meetings. We believe this Is due, In part at leiat, to the evangelistic tone of the pastor's preaching to a people whose hearts are prepared for It by good flundayschool work. At the Runday night service Rev. R. A. Lapsley, Jr., a for THE PRESBYTERIA tuer pastor of the church, preached a most helpful seriuou on the subject of "Faithfulness." The people of the church always hear him gladly and with much spiritual profit.

This was the first meeting blessed with a secretary of literature. Therefore, much stronger educationally. It was such a pleasure to have another pastor welcome us as auxiliary to the work and "assist these women who labor with us" in every way. The welcome from nnator hnatpaa Presbyterial and society was sincere and scriptural. Upon which was built, in spite of rain, a stronger meeting than ever, in many respects. The devotlonals were strengthening and soul-feeding. Mrs. Mayes, "Unity"; Mrs. Graham, "Consecration"; Mrs. Grinnan, "Praise and Thankscivlnir." and MIhh RIbUp "inv of Service." These punctuating the work were restful and refreshing. The secretary was spared the tedlouH reading of minutes by circulating the printed minutes of last meeting. Her report was on a chart, where all could see. While not perfect, owing to inaccurate time for rendering reports, all hoped this year would find Presbyterlals meeting at the time a whole year's work could be reported.

Missionary Institutes had been held in Enoree and South Carolina Presbyterials, and new work undertaken.

Mr. Mills, of Clemson College, gave a fine treat, "New Home Missions in South Carolina." Mr. Mayes read report of William Brearley Ministers' Home; also gave an inspiring talk on "Local Home Missions," and explained why South Carolina, unlike the other States, had no Synodical Home Missions.
