The third annual meeting of the Synod of Appalachia was held in the Sinking Spring church in Abingdon, Va. This is one of the oldest churches of the western part of the "Old Do minion" State, and has been recently repaired and beautified, making it a beautiful house of worship and ser vice. The opening service was held on Tuesday, October 16th. at 7:30 P. M. Rev. C. C. Carson, D. D., of the First church, Bristol, Tenn., preached the opening sermon from 1 T!m. 3:15 (last clause), "The Church of the Living God." He was assisted in the service by Revs. Edward Mack, D. D., of the Union Seminary, and W. T. Thompson, of the First church, Knox ville, Tenn. Revs. George B. Thompson and J M. Sedgwick were elected temporary clerks. Rev. W. T. Thompson, Jr., was elected moderator. The morning devotional exercises on the second day were conducted by Rev. J. L. McMillan and after routine business and a recess, the communion service was conducted: Rev. Edward Mack, D. D., preaching from "God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Gal. 6:14). It was a masterful pre sentation of (1) "The Lord Jesus Christ"; (2) "The Cross," and (3) Paul's "Glory," after which Revs. J. Lynn Bachman, D. D.f and J. F. Campbell, D. D., administered the Supper of our Lord. The Conference on Christian Stew ardship occupied the whole afternoon. The reports of the Permanent Com mittees, on Foreign Missions, Home Missions, Christian Education and Sunday-school Extension, were read and docketed; after which Rev. Homer E. McMillan, D. D., the As sembly's representative, gave an elo quent and forceful survey of the four fold field of the Church. The evening was very pleasantly spent in impressing the plan and im portance of the Stonewall Jackson College on the membership of the Synod. The Synod of Appalachfa has in its various meetings emphasized some particular phase of its work. This meeting was largely given to Chris tian Stewardship, and the report ot the Committee on Systematic Benefi cence provoked considerable discus sion on the Increase of the apportion ment to the different Presbyteries. It was finally agreed to meet the General Assembly's apportionment . The Committee on Orphans' Home called attention to the fact that Ashe ville Presbytery has two Homes: one at Balfour, with forty children, and one at Franklin, N. C., where there are twenty children. In Holston Pres bytery there Is one Home, at Banner Elk, with thirty-six children. The committee urged the Presbyteries of Abingdon and Knoxville to carry out the resolution of 1915, when the Synod decided that "as soon as pos sible Homes for orphan children be established In the bounds of each Presbytery.

Main St., py.l Sl.HI.HC Corner /til DO C 'Hl'RCH PEOPLE PRAY? An Interesting answer to this ques tion is found in a letter from a Chi cago, 111., publisher of a book of prayers. He spent $56.00 advertising his book of prayers in a list of re ligious publications, running a one inch advertisement only two times. The orders came in large quantity, and before the advertising had spent itself he was able to report that while orders were still coming In, he had already sold over 1,700 books of prayers. The fact that a book of prayers is in great demand among church peo ple seems to indicate that they have a very intense interest in learning how to pray. It also shows that the Church paper is closely read by some mighty good people, who have great confidence in its advertising columns, as well as in its reading columns.
