HAKNSRERGER RETURN TO CHINA. Upon the eve of our return to China we take this opportunity, through your splendid family paper, the Pres byterian of the South, to express our profound gratitude and thanks to the many churches and host of friends for the sweet Christian courtesy and great kindness and generosity wher ever the Lord has led us during our helpful and profitable furlough. We wish to thank our Executive Commit tee of Foreign Missions, the good brethren at Nashville, and many indi vidual members of our beloved church for the lovely interest in our China work and for a multitude of kindnesses every way. The finest sym pathy and abiding fellowship has been our full portion everywhere in the home land. Especial thanksgiving to God and deep appreciation is ex pressed to our beloved Mr. J. C. Hunt for the generous gift of both a boys' school and girls' school for the new Taichow station. A wonderful mis sion spirit and great faith is here seen in such a man of God. Mention should bo made also of the excellent missionary spirit of Mt. Carmel church, Raphine, Va., in their gift of walls around our station compound and of their prayers; of the gift of a native church for Taichow City by the good elder of Raymond, Miss.; for two residences and funds for buying land by the Executive Committee, and for the splendid gift of a hospital by the Belk brothers, of North Carolina, two years ago; the gift of a motor cycle, a stereopticon, a preaching tent by personal friends, and a motor-boat from Roanoke, Va., soon to come. A great company are with us, who labor with us in much prayer and strong crying to God, that many souls "must be born again" in the Taichow field. Such wonderful friends and co partners as these make the heart most happy. For all these charming bless ings we thank God, rejoice and be lieve in you, and now return to China, expecting and attempting great things in the name of the Lord. You will join us in unceasing prayer that these gifts, together with us, shall by faith win one thousand souls to Christ Jesus during the next seven years. This is the stream of life that shall never have an end. Good-bye and God's rich blessings be upon every one who has prayed for us. We are sailing on the "Empress of Japan" December 7th, and our China address is Taichow, Kiangsu Province, China. The great Lord of the harvest bless and keep each one till we meet again. Affectionately, Rev. and Mrs. T. Lyttleton Harns berger. ASSEMBLY'S HOME MISSIONS AND THE PRESBYTERIAN PRO GRESSIVE PROGRAM. The basic work of Home Missions is to make and keep America Chris tian. It is no small job, though we have been working at it in a small way. Never in the history of the na tion was this work more fundamen tally important. It is the judgment of the most care ful students of social and political conditions that the greatest danger signal on the horizon is the lack of genuine religion, and it is their con viction that the only solution of the nation's industrial difficulties is the application of the Christian motive.
