Sydnor & Hundley At the time of this visit this old couple had passed their fourscore years. They had no home and no way in which to provide one. A kind friend had given them the use of a small twVroom house. This was fur nished in the plainest way. In one room they lived and slept and enter tained their company. The other was their kitchen and dining room. The wife had all of the house work and cooking to do, for they could not af ford to hire a servant. The husband was very feeble and in delicate health, needing attention and comforts which he could not have. During the visit the interests of the Church, both the local church and the Church at large, were discussed, show ing how deeply these old saints loved it. and how much they were concerned about its welfare. Not one word of complaint was uttered and no intima tion was given that the Church was not doing all that it ought to do. And yet the visitor knew that the Church, which this able minister of the gospel had served so faithfully for more than a half century, was giving him and his noble wife not more than two hun dred dollars a year with which they could provide themselves only the barest necessities of life. There are many cases to-day that are just as needy and just as de serving, men and women who have given their lives unreservedly to the work of the Church. It is gratifying to know that the Church is beginning to wake up to the responsibility and privilege of taking care of these fathers and mothers in Israel. Besides the aged servants there are some younger men who, because of failing health, have fallen by the way side and are no longer able to pro vide for themselves and those depen dent upon them. Some of His ministering servants God has called to a higher service, and they have had to leave to the care of the Church their wives and children, many of whom have nowhere else to look for support. Although the Church is doing more than it has done in the past, it still comcs far from doing what it ought to do for these charges that God has given into their care. One of the gratifying features of the case is that the business men of the Church are beginning to realize the privilege that God has thus given them to serve Him, while they care for these children of His. They should be especially looked after in these times of high cost of living. YOUNG PEOPLE'S SOCIETIES BIBI.R RKADIXO. M., Apr. 1, Bible-study. Acts 17:10-15. T., Apr. 2. Memory work. Josh. 1:0-0.

They would not take the statements even of such a man as Paul until they had compared them with the Scriptures. Paul was preaching a crucified Saviour. They went to the Scriptures to see if that was the Saviour they offered. If men would always search the Scriptures, there would not be so many unscrlptural religions.
