giving the young people a thorough
knowledge of Bible truths, and the need to teach them that true religion was not a matter of believing a creed, but a life to be lived based on the knowledge acquired in the study of God's Word. Mr. A. T. McClelland, representing the Sabbath School Society, Belfast, gave an eloquent address on "The Teacher's Knowledge," which was lis tened to with close attention. He used illustrations effectively to im press the teachers with the impor tance of their work. He showed that the aim of all Sabbath school teach ing should be to bring God's Word into vital contact with the lives of the children. He urged that the chil dren who had never got a chance in their own homes should be brought under the influence of the Sabbath school, and that all children should be trained for service in the Church. The conference was attended by many earnest Christians; the ad dresses were listened to with eager attention; a warmth of Christian feeling possessed the whole, and with faith in the truths humbly, yet ear nestly, discussed, gave strong hope that much blessing from God will be poured out upon the Church and the young.

GRAHAM. The Executive Committee of Home Missions records its deep sense of loss in the sudden Irome-going of Mr. C. E. Graham on August 23, 1922. His personal friendship for the secretaries and members of this committee, his valuable counsels, his substantial sym pathy and generous support of its work made him a tower of strength to Assembly's Home Missions. His broad philanthrophies took In all phases of Christian missions and extended far beyond the bounds of his own Clrurch. Industrial, social and national organizations will suffer the loss of his kindly sympathy and strong arm of support. Hospitals in foreign lands, the Mon treat Association, the Graham Build ing in Jacksonville, Fla., and the dor mitory of the Presbyterian College at Durant. Okla., are monuments to his generosity, which will perpetuate his memory in the ages to come; and hia numerous, unknown, quiet ministra tions to the needy will make his name "as ointment poured forth" ? fragrant in countless homes and hearts. These benefactions are the true expression of the man, of the citizen, and of the Christian. "UNFINISHED TASKS" Of the Southern Presbyterian Church By HOMER McMILLAN, D. D. PRICE: PAPER, 50C; CLOTH, 75C. (ILLUSTRATED) Official Home Mission Text Book For 1922-23 LEADERS' HELPS FOR SENIOR CLASSES, IOC By Mrs. L. W. Curtis LEADERS' HELPS FOR JUNIOR CLASSES, IOC By Mrs. W. P. Borland COMMENDATIONS OF "UNFINISHED TASKS" From Report of Standing Committee on Home Missions, adopted by the General Assembly, Charles ton, W. Va., 1922 ? "That during the season leading up to Home Mission Week, mentioned in paragraph 3, the Assembly endorse and recommend the use of the new text lwx>k, 'UNFINISHED TASKS ' by Rev. Homer McMillan, D. D., and that this book l>e given the widest possible circulation throughout our bounds for the use of study groups." Mrs. L. W. Curtis, Richmond, Va. ? "I have just read with delight Dr. McMillan's book, 'UNFINISHED TASKS.' It is as full of information and inspiration as a nut is of meat, and is just the kind of a l>ook needed by our women's societies in their study classes next year. It is a compendium of our Assembly's five-fold work of Home Missions; it is a store-house of information and personal experiences of workers; it is a vision of our Church's unfinished and new tasks that stirs the blood and quickens the pulse." Wm. Crowe, D. D., Pastor Westminster Church, St. Louis ? "A new book has just come from the nress, bearing a wealth of information and inspiration to all who are interested in the development of the Presbyterian Church in the South Dr. McMillan has reduced to a record his observations of fifteen years, together with such conclusions as such a survey would demand. He traces the history of our Home Mission movement from its small beginninga to its present mighty task. The facts are presented in arresting fashion. The style is lucid, the appeal is eloquent. . This volume will mean an enrich ment of the literature of our Church. For private read ing, or as a textbook for study classes, it is heartily com mended." Action of Home Mission Committee ? "In view of the fnct that the books used in the Home Mission study classes the two past years have been largely social service and problem studies, it is the judgment of the Executive Committee that the Home Mission cause will be best served and advanced at this time by the study of our own work, and we earnestly recommend the use of our own book, 'UNFINISHED TASKS,' by our churches and societies." Mrs. Andrew Bramlett, Rock Hill, S. C., Vice President South Carolina Synodical ? "I am delighted with Dr. McMillan's l>ook on the work of the Executive Committee of the Assembly's Home Missions. It is simply and forcefully written. It is interesting and makes a fine appeal for the Home Mission work of our own South ern Church. It is just what our women want and for what they have been asking." J. Sprole Lyons, D. D., Pastor First Presbyterian Church, Atlanta?" 'UNFINISHED TASKS,' by Dr. McMillan, is a very fine illustration of a type of books which this busy, practical age demands. It is brief, compact and absolutely to the point. The analysis is simple and comprehensive. The spirit of the book and writer is candid, fearless nnd optimistic. The . treatment lends itself splendidly to its use as a text book. It will be difficult to find a text for a Mission Study Course which will combine as much of information about our own Church, of appraisal of its resources, of comprehension of the vastness of the task, and of urgency for ita full and immediate accomplishment."
