such a height, Peter." Listen: "This
is the way it began. I was a fisher
boy and was rough anil Impulsive and
profane. I went to school to Jesus,
and 1 owe all to him. But let mo tell
you of the start. I had a brother,
named Andrew. He heard of Jesus,
and one day he took me and brought
me to Jesus. He was my starter. He
gave mo the push that started mo up

I called you, neither saw nor heard."

THE PRAYER MEETING
OUK SYNOIMCAIi ORPHANAGES.
Week Beginning Aug. 3, 1919.
Most of the Synods in our Church
have their own orphanages and all of
them ought to have them. In many
cases a Synod ought to have moro
than one. In some cases Presbyteries
have their own orphanages, and if
each Presbytery in our Church had
its own orphanage there would prob
ably not bo more than are needed.
Very few people realize the need of
these institutions. The statement has
recently been made that in tho State
of Virginia there are 10,000 orphans
that are not in orphans' homes who
need to be taken care of. This num
ber is no doubt larger just now than
usual, due to the scourge of influenza
during the past year, and which is
said to have killed far more men in
this country than were killed in the
war. But the number is very great
under normal conditions.
In all probability the same condi
tions proportionately are to be found
in the other States. This means that
there are many thousands of orphans
with no real provision for their care.
Of course It may be said that the
Presbyterian Church cannot be ex
pected to take care of all, of these
orphans. That may be true. But Is
it not also true that the Presbyterians
ought to do all in their power to take
care of every orphan in its territory,
which has no one else to provide for
it? Having the figures for Virginia
before us, we use them again by way
of illustration. Suppose no other
church, organization or individual did
anything for the unprovided for 10,
000 orphans in the State. Would It
not be their duty and would it not
be possible for the 45,000 members
of the Presbyterian Church In this
State to take care of all of the 10,000
Or suppose the Presbyterian Church
should only be held responsible for
its proportionate share of say 2,000
of these orphans, could they not eas
ily be taken care of by the Synod?
The fact is that this Synod is now
taking care of only about 120 of them.
So far as we know, the proportion is
about the same for other States. This
seems to bo falling far below what
is needed and what Presbyterians can
Is there anything that can appeal
more strongly to a Christian heart
than a child with no one to take care
of it? Many of the orphans In this
country are growing up, not only In
poverty and want, but also in very
bad conditions in other respects. Many
of the waifs in our cities are orphans.
Many of the boys and girls who go
wrong and become criminals could
have been saved if, when their fath
