I ask your attention still further to the following request, which was adopted (p. 80c.): 1. That the constituent Presbyteries be requested to require each commis sioner, in reporting his diligence In discharging his duty, to give to his Presbytery his reasons for not remain ing until the General Assembly dis solved if he failed to remain until such dissolution. 2. That the Presbyteries, in electing commissioners to each General Assem bly, be urged ordinarily to elect only such commissioners as can remain at the General Assembly to its dissolu tion. Thos. H. Law, Stated Clerk. WOMAN'S WORK. (Continued from page 4) schools that pay from this standpoint, but our dividends are in the young people that are sent out from year to year that will take their place in tll? Church, and lead lives of usefulness. We do not appeal for patronage of those that have money, but to the poorer class of boys and girls who otherwise would be cut off from the privileges of a lirst-class school. Most of our students are from good Chris tian homes in the country. One of our patrons has said, "It is a fine thing to have such a school as ours, with its definite Christian influence to which young people can be sent." It is a very rare thing that a stu dent attends our school without mak ing a profession of faith in Christ Jesus, and uniting with some church; and every year we have those who make a definite decision to enlist in some form of Church work. Last year was the climax in this regard. During an evangelistic meeting, among other visible fruits, there were twen ty-five young people who came for ward definitely committing themselves to some form of Christian service. Among these we had a number of candidates for the ministry. More young men have decided to study for the ministry at French camp than in any other school in the State. Our schools are supported by the Woman's Auxiliary of our State, who give to us each year from two to three thousand dollars. Besides this help we have several friends who are supporting certain students who have no means of their own. We maintain that this money cannot be better spent than in educating these young people, who will be leaders in the world and Church, when they have finished their education. Our graduates make hne teachers, showing that their education has been thorough. Every year we send seve ral of our graduates to our Mountain Mission schools, where they have made good without exception. One of our graduates was made principal of the grammar school at Banner Elk, N. C., during the first few months of her stay there. We need more help in training these workers. Kind readers, will you not lend us a hand by endowing a schol arship, or give us some very much needed equipment, or build us a much needed girls' dormitory? Mr. Rocke feller has said that the best invest ments he has made has been in de nominational schools, and he has backed up his statement with $250, 000.000. Will you not invest some of the trust funds God has placed in your care in these fine boy* and girls who shall become leaders during the coming generation? French Camp, Miss. ONE WOMAN. Some one said, 'Give me one conse crated woman of the right kind, and I can build a church anywhere." An other replied, "Yes, and give me one woman of the other kind, and I can break up any church that was ever built." Both of these statements are largely true. They show the wonder ful power of woman. The fact ttjat most churches are not being broken up, but are prospering, and that new churches are being built up, shows that most women are consecrated. THE GOAL. The goal set by the Woman's Aux iliary is: "All the women of the Church praying for, giving to and working for all the causes of the Church." MEXICANS PRAY VIRGIN TO SENI> THEM RAIN. Protestant people sometimes rais?? the question as to whether Roman Catholics really worship the Virgin Mary. Here is a telegram that ap peared in the New York World: June 6th: Mexico City (Special). ? The image of the Virgin de los Remedios has been removed from the village- of Los Remedios to the Cathedral here, where it will be exposed for several days while devotions are held to end the serious drought. Thousands of persons followed the image to the Cathedral, where a sol emn ceremony was held, presided over by the Archbishop of Mexico.
