OUH WORK AMONG THE COLORED. (Continued from page 11) the work, gives promise of rapid and large development. Under the able and energetic superintendence of Rev. R. K. Timmons, last year elected president, all sorts of advances and improvements are already under way. A larger faculty, another year of study in the normal department, en largement of the industrial depart ment, a new teacher's residence, en tire refurnishing of the dormitories, better oversight of the students' liv ing arrangements, new enthusiasm among the student body ? all these things and more mark the first year of Mr. Timmons' administration. Of course all this could not have been accomplished had not the Church in its growing liberality more generous ly supplied the treasury of the Homo Mission Committee at Atlanta; neither would it have been done with out the unceasing urgency of Mr. Timmons for better equipment. \ Only bare mention can be made of the great hopefulness that lies in Mrs. Winsborough's interest in work for the women and girls, and of the promise of enlargement in the Church work through the activities of the colored evangelist, Rev.

Begin to prepare for the service, December 21, 1919? the day appointed by the General Assem bly. who has made friends among both white and colored people wherever he has gone. Now is the time for the whole Church to emphasize its regard for our colored work; now is tae time for a campaign to set Stillman se curely on its feet; now is the time for establishing the girls' school that the Woman's Auxiliary has on its heart; now is the time for pushing Presbyterianism among the colored people and strengthening the Church work in the Snedecor Synod; now Is the time for increasing prayer and multiplied giving for all phases of our colored work. Now is the time because just now race feeiing seems everywhere acutely sensitive, and race troubles so easily started and so terrible in their results. The time when an evil spirit is most easily stirred is just the time for special manifestation of the spirit of good ness and kindliness. Now is the time for our Christianity to show how pre judice and suspicion may be allayed, and peace anci the old-time relations of helpfulness and friendliness and sympathy brought back.

A conference was held on Mis sions and the Assembly's Plan, when several brief but forceful papers and addresses were given; the tenor of which was: Our increased obliga tion to support the Lord's work; and our need for more information on the subject of Missions, especially among our men. Action on the overtures sent down by the Assembly was postponed till the spring meeting that the Presby tery might be better qualified to act. Rev. T. M. Barbee's work among our several vacant churches was com mended and he was recommended to continue this work till the next meet ing of Presbytery. Monroe City was chosen as tho place for the spring meeting. Presbytery adjourned to meet at the call of the moderator at Synod in Mexico. J. T. McCutchan, S. C. POTOSI.
