ORDER FROM Presbyterian Committee of Publication Richmond, VaM Texarkana, Ark.-Tex. ? how much He was needed. There was a boy possessed of a devil and no one else could drive him out. The whole world needs & Saviour, and besides Jesus, "there is no omer name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved." Then we should tell others of tho Saviour. Shortly after sending out the twelve Apostles to preach, Jesus also sent out seventy other disciples, to go through the land announcing His coming. He calls attention to the condition of the world, showing them how much work there is to be done and how few are the workers. He calls upon them to work and at the same time to pray to God that He ' will send others into the work. Iden tically the same condition exists today. The laborers are more than they were then, but the work also is far greater. The number of workers that Jesus sent out into the land of Palestine was greater in proportion to the popula tion than is the number that the church is now sending into heathen lands. May each one of us from our hearts be able to say, "Here am I, Lord, send me to any work you may choose for me, and I'll go where you want mo to go." THORN WKI,Ij ORPHANAGE. This home for orphans, under the control of the Synods of South Caro lina, Georgia, and Florida, has been doing its Christian-nxe service for fatherless children for forty-seven years. Hundreds have been trained and gone out as useful citizens and leading Christian workers. They have been inspired to be somebody and do something. Seventeen of Thornwell's boys and girls are now in college preparing themselves for a larger service in life. They are found in the following insti tutions: Presbyterian College of South Carolina, Chicora, Winthrop, Red Springs, Agnes Scott, University of Minnesota, and Oglethorpe. Three of our young men are in Columbia Seminary preparing for the gospel ministry. A senior in Chicora Is a ?volunteer for the mission field and one of the former pupils of Thorn w*!l has been recently appointed to go out to the foreign field as a trained nurse. The demands for admission are pressing. An additional home wa3 opened in September and we now have 357 children, which is thirty-seven more than we had last year. What would you do with thirty-seven added to your family in one month? Thorn well's budget is large and the sum mer was closed with a heavy deficit. We want you, our friends, to re member us in your prayers and with your gifts at the Thanksgiving season. The favor of the Father has rested upon this Institution for these many years. Its friends have never failed it. Our faith is in God and you. In morals, as In geometry, a straight line Is the shortest distance between two points. Most of the difficulties ot trying to live the Christian life arise from at tempting to half live it. ?
