SYNOD OF APPAIiACHI A .
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.

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.
