The first principle of the school is to perpetuate th e ideals of its founder, the late John P. McGuire, who saw in his work the supreme task of moulding character i n the boys. The location of the school in William Byrd Park (car lines right at hand), gives the boys the use of the great city playground on which the school fronts.

Recent letters tell of typhoid fever in the family of l>r. J. W. Bradley, John W? Jr., ami Julia being down with pretty severe cases, it seemed. They had been to Shanghai a week or two before with their parents, who went on a necessary business. It was thought they got the infection prob ably at a hotel where the drinking water was only filtered, not boiled. Last winter there were weeks together when most missionary families were troubled with what we in America called the "flu." Strangely there the children were most severely affected, while in America it attacked grown people. In Dr. Bradley's home the little baby (now seven or eight months old) was most dangerously attacked. Dr. Bradley himself being in the room with him, happened to look around and saw him blue in the face with suffocation, though he had not made enough outcry to attract the attention of the doctor's keen ear. It took more than half an hour's hard work by the skilled physician and surgeon to bring him to approximate safety. For days they did not dare leave him unwatclied day or night. Doubtless it was in just such a spell that Baby Dick Vinson, in Hai cliow, was taken. Though the nurse and father were within hearing of any cry, no sound was heard from him, and when found he was past re covery, though every possible effort was made. He had been suffpring from cold for some days, but seemed much better that morning ? indeed, practically well ? and after being bathed and fed was put Into bis crib for bis customary midday nap of two or three hours. One can only imag ine the shock to the parents and nurse too (who loved him devotedly) of finding him dead with milk and mucus around his mouth. Recent news of the death of Mrs. Bell and Mr. Crane and the item in this week's paper announcing Rev. A. D. Rice's death at Ilaichow, with such news as this of fever in Sutsien, urge all to remember our missionaries in incessant prayer, for they live in for eign lands in the midst of most un sanitary and dangerous conditions, risking their own lives and those of their loved ones with whole-hearted devotion for the advancement of the cause of our Master. INGATHERING IN CHINA. By Rev. B. Craig Patterson. We are now rejoicing in our season of soul harvesting, which begins in February. In most of the ten3 of thousands of stations in China special services are held and catechetical classes are formed at this time. Feb ruary and March are the idle months and are given up by non-Christians to gambling and eating, for we do not lack the Epicurean and Cretan. The Church has seized this time for ad vance work and it has been greatly blessed. At Sutsien we had hoped to have with us Rev. Mr. Saunders, but he found it impossible to come, so we gathered our own fields. The servleok were well attended and the audiences more like a home crowd than an/ that we havo had. A Mohammedan took his stand with us. This is the first Mohammedan in this part of China that I know of to become a Christian. It was humbling to havo his wife come to see us and not drink tea from our cups for fear of con tamination. She later came and drank. Strong, Forcelul Men Willi Plenty ot Iron In Their Blood ? These Are the Ones With the Power and Energy to Win It is estimated that over 3.000, people annually in this country alone TAKE For Red Blood, Strength and Endurance And lie ate with, us! Last autumn a Mohammedan priest in an outlield had compassion oil me and urged me not to eat pork, saying that when I got to the door of heaven and a3kcd for mercy the devil would call out: "Don't listen to that mouth that cats pork!" He really seemed concerned for me. However, he admitted that the religion of his people was mostly eating and dress. During the meet ings at Sutsien about forty mada pro fession of purpose to study Christian ity. I was at Yang-he early in the month and baptized four men. They have endured much and were most inter esting. Some years ago I saw a woman on the street there who could read and I presented her a book. She has since become blind and was continual ly crying and complaining. Her son has recently become a Christian and taught her a hymn ? "My tears will not avail me, My eyes are blind and darkened, Only the blood of Jesus, etc." She has become contented and happy. At Butsi, where I recently examined a class of inquirers, about ten of the more experienced were received. Among these inquirers is a most in teresting man. He is well to do, and formerly was very fond of gambling. Some months since he was ill, and while at the hospital here the evan gelist, Tu, worked with him. He aaid "I certainly hated to give up gam bling and nlign myself with Christian ity, but when Mr. Tu made me kneel on the board floor upstairs and pray, I just threw up my hands and said to God, 'I'll stop it!'" And he has. Not only so, but he proves his ear nestness by his gifts to the church and zeal for souls. He works with his former associates and smiles away their jibes. Further southwest, at Ling-Cheng, we have just finished a chapel and school building. As yet it has no doors to close or window and blinds for the square holes In the wall. So the dour March winds have free play in the rooms. Also the walls are still reeking with the undried mud plas tering. However, that did not keep a crowded house from sitting on six inch forms without backs from 11 o'clock to half past 2 the other day. After my best sermon 1 tried to dis miss them to buy books and rest, and take tea for a little, but they would have nono of it. It was "preach some mbre! We do not often have preaching privileges." So a young teacher that we li&ve gotten located there spoke to them for an hour and a half, and then I took a second turn. They listened all the time, too, and will remember it, for it was practical and not abstruse. It is most desira ble that the missionary for this field be one that glories In March drafts, one that can do well on two meals a day, and tliesA to consist of nndone Indian Baskets ?
