Elaborate plans arc belrnr mado by missionaries of all the Protestant denom Nations In this country for an Invasion I, Mexico, probably early this winter. Instead of each denomination working lone In some certain territory, all of those which had been represented In the field previous to last spring, when the missionaries had to leave the country owing to the Mexican revolution, with (he exception of the Episcopal Church end the Baptist Church (South), are to work In unison. The entire program, aa outlined, the eutcome of a conference of the mission board officials In Cincinnati, O.. early this summer, Is to be one of a con tlructive character. Instead of carrying rlfle and cartildges the next army to go to the eouthern republic will carry Bibles and books. It la planned to estab lish one church of the Protestant denom ination to be known as "The Evangelical Church of Mexico." Even the press Is to be Included In the piogram, and ono b'e publication Is to bo founded to fur ther the cause of tho new denomination. SCHOOLS TO BE ESTABLISHED. There seems to be, In tho minds of the returned missionaries, more need of education" than anything else In Mexico to get the people Interested in the church, and .with ocry church that Is estab lished It Is hoped to have a school In which the elementary branches will be taught It is thought that at first the schools will attempt only to train tho pupils through tho sixth grade, but tho ultimate plan Is to have higher schools, 'one tig university and one theological seminary which will train the natlo men and women whom are persuaded to en ter Christian work. The missionaries In this country, who cr recalled, are anxious to returr, and have been urging their boards to airango to send them at the earliest possible date. It Is believed by some that the Invasion mav be begun before the Now Year, and this will be much to the pleasure of those tvho belio"0 that they should be there to give the Mexican children some Christ mas parties. Leaders In the work, how ever, are not certain when the order will seminary, which will train tho native men and women who are persuaded to enter Christian work. WORKERS ANXIOUS TO RETURN. Since the "Liberal" leaders have as sumed charge of affairs In the greater part of the republic, reports havo como to the missionaries from friends that the Government is turning many of the Cath olic churches into institutions and even ,the homes of the prieBts and the con vents are being taken for housing soldiers r and providing playgrounds and other iwusement places. On this account some of the missionaries are fearful that the '"people may become estranged from re pJJgfous work, and It may prove difficult to Kt them to take an Interest In anything that has to do witn the Christian Church. In consequence, they want to get back before the change Is too great. One of the most Important things to be done, in the opinion of those who are most familiar with the country and Its people, Is tho founding of courses In do mestic and manual arts, as they feel It Is essential that the young people of Mexico grow up with some definite aim and equipped for practical work. Included in the denominations uniting In the plan for the Invasion are the Congregationalism, Baptists, Disciples. Friends and Southern Presbyteiians, Methodists, Associated Reformed Presby terians and the Presbyterians (North). Although these denominations are to work In unison, their workers are not to be distributed in all sections Instead, on recommendation of a committee on ter ritorial occupation, each denomination is to be responsible for some definite part of the country In a few cases tho work of the different denominations will over lap, but to a large extent the assignments as Intended are shown In tho map accom panying this article. Through the re arrangement the Presbyterian mission aries who have labored for 30 years In Northern Mexico, will hereafter be found In the South OCCVPATION WILL BE COMPLETE. The assignments as planned to make the occupation of the entire country complete, and to distribute the work so that certain workers may be responsible for the occupation and missionary culti vation of the different States, are now as follows Congregatlonallsts-rChlhuahua, Slna loi as far south as Slnaloa River, Sonora and Lower California Baptists Coahulla.

Tha helping hand always wins more battle and does more good than ihe ono that tries to win by hard blows, The man who criticises the laws and their makers, but never goes to the polls, could see the greatest enemy of the na tion by looking Into a mirror. We have known men down in tho slums, lost to friends, and sometimes wearing the pallor of tho prison cell, who were good at heart, but whoso lives were shattered by the sting of distrust and unkind words, when a few words of cheer and kindness would have started them on their way to successful lives and happiness. Let us stroll together down "The Friendly Path" and find tho peace and Joy that comeB through looking for tho good things that are scattered nhou everywhere. ...

YOUR WASTINGS Rubbish Is God's opportunity for riches. The things that are despised Ho loves to turn Into things that are a delight. Even the world is discovering this principle. In commenlng on the amazing value of for merly neglected by-products It hits been said: "Men have discovered that waste is too rich to bo neglected, without It. tho world Is too poor" Discarded turky quills are today enriching not only the world's commerce, but the world-wldo work of the Sunday school through tho gifts of a well-known Inventor. And when wo give God unhindered contiol of our own wnsted lives He can capitalize our waste Into such Immediate and un- measured wealth for ourselves and for others ns only tho mltncle-alchomy of Heaven could accomplish It Is the base things and the things that are despised that God rejoices to touch, transform and ub ior ms own glory. If we are sure that there is waste and rubbish In our own life, we may be equally sure that ours is the llfo that God can Immediately make wealthy. Sunday School Times.

That It Is possible to continue religious worlc In the summer through co-operative methods has been demonstrated during the last few months by the results of union meetings held by chapters of the Brotherhood of Andrew and Philip in West Philadelphia, nnd the West Branch Young Men's Christian Association The meetings started on July B and are to end tomorrow, although It had been tho original intention to close them before thit date The change in eloetng was made, however, nt the request of sev eral churches, which had not taken up the plan in the beginning and desired to have their chapters represented in the work after they found out how success ful It was proving During the warm summer afternoons, when there was tittle religious activity. the T. l C. A. workers and those of tho Brotherhood opened services ln the asso ciation lobbv at i o'clock each Sunday and held a brief service of preparation, and afterward open-air services were conducted The jeports show that the at tendance at 11 meetings was 1741 persons, that six denominations participated In the work ftnd that 11 lajmen and U cler gymen addressed the meetings But. best of all. S3 mPii have pledged themselves for some specific kind of voluntary work ill the Interests of advancing Christianity. The Rev John Watchorn, pastor of the Trankford Methodist Episcopal Church, Is to ho the speaker at the lobby meet ing for men at the Central Y M C A tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock His subject Is to be "Oreater Works, or the fhillenge of Christ " Starting with Sun da September 27, Blchard E. Wilson director of the servlco department of Central Branch pUns to have big meet ings tn the auditorium. Good speakers ami BpecUl music will be arranged for each meeting With the retirement of the Rov. Dr. Lawrence M. Colfclt from the pastorate of the West Green Street Presbyterian Church, Nineteenth and Green streets, there seems llttlo doubt that tho congre gation will shortly offer the valuable church property for sale. One of the officials said yesterday that, because of the small congicgatlon, due largely to changed conditions of the neighborhood and tho temovnl to tho sub urban sections of many of the old mem bers, the majority of the members seemed to agrco that tho best thing that could be done would bo to disband and (urn the property over to th Philadelphia Presbytery. In this event, he said, the property would undoubtedly be offered for sale In tho near future. FIFTY YEARS OLD. The church edifice is one of tho most stately ln the city, and its towering srilre Is a landmark In the neighborhood. Tor almost half a century it has housed the congregation in their worship, and among those who attended services there were many of the most distinguished citizens of the country The property is said to be worth about $60,000. Years ago the church was one of tho most flourishing ln tho presbjtery, and It was not Infrequent, according to old churchmen, for every pew to be filled both at the morning and evening serv ices Among Its pastors uero men of great eloquence and leaders of the de nomination Xovv many of the older members havo passed away, the vounger generations have temoved from tho cen tral to tho suburban districts and the congregation has fallen off rapidly Dur ing tho last two j ears there has been no Sundny school connected with the church, and. na one of the membeis de clared a day or two ago, when there Is no Sunday school there Is little hope for tho future of any congregation. PASTOR COLFELT MUCH LIKED. The Rev. Dr. Colfelt was one of the most popular clergjmen. In this city, nnd for j ears, during his pastorate, even though members had removed far from the church, they would return to listen to his sermons And had he not re mained there It is probable that the con gregation would have disbanded before this. Dr. Colfelt came to the city first as the pastor of the Oxford Presbjterlan Church, Broad and Oxford streets, and for seven jears he remained in tht I charge For jears he wtiB pastor of tho old First Presbjterlan Church, Washing ton Squnie, nnd theic he spoke to con grogttlons that Included men and women from every corner of tho globe He had been with tho West Green Street Church since 109, and even In the last few jears when he was older than many men In tho pastoral work, ho had largo con gregations. Tho West Green Street Church was organized ns tho "Alexander Presbj terlan Church" by a committee of pres bjtery on Sundaj, March IB. 1558, as the outgrowth of a meeting of men ln the homo of tho Rev. Dr. William B. Schenck, Eighteenth and Green 8treet3. This meeting named a committee to con sider the matter on January 9, 1S5S, and the first worship was held in an empty storeroom at Seventeenth and Mount Vernon streets. Tho Rev. Dr. Alfred Nevln pleached the first sermon. DR. NEVIN FIRST PASTOR. Very soon afterwards the present site was obtained, and on Sunday, April 11, tho same vear, the congregation took possession of a temporary structure at 10th and Green streets, which was used until tho handsome new edifice was built. Tho Rev. Dr Alfred Nevln became th first pastor, and was Installed ns such on April IS of the jear It was organized. During the next three yearB h stirred up much enthusiasm, and when, on October 31, 15H1, the Rev. Dr. T. M Cun ningham succeeded him, ho found llttlo difficulty in getting support for the erec tion of the new church. Within a fw years he had the plensuie of seeing the spire of the big edifice rHe. and In July, 1S61, he letired and the Rev. George F. Cain took charge. The original name given the chinch, "The Alexander Presbjterlan Church," was chosen In memorj of the Rev. Dr. Archibald Alexnnder, the first professor In Princeton Theological Semlnaiy. In the early 90s the name was changed to the West Green Street Presbyterian Church. A congregational meeting will bo held within the next month, when definite action will be taken In tho matter of disbanding and permlttlg th- Presbytery to take charge of the property THE REV. DR.

Dr. Robert B L Jarvls. who leaves the pastorate of the strong Beth any Presbyterian Church, 22d nnd Baln biidge streets, to take charge of the evan gelistic woik of the Stonj Brook Asspm bly, has expressed regret at leaving this city, but in his answer to the call extended him in which he accepts the new woik ho makes plain that he feels it a duty nnd privilege to preach the old-time evnn gellstic setmons u h as the Assembly's platform stands for. That tho work Doctoi Jarvis Is to un dertake for the Stonv Brook Assembly will be successful Is Indicated by a state ment Included In the announcement of Doctor Jarvls' acceptance in the Brooklyn Kagle, which sajs. "The Stony Brook Assembly has In its directorate some of the strongest men In the Presbjterlan Church, and their In dorsement and support of this evangelistic movement are guaranty of its sanltj- and aggiesslvcness The president of the Assembly Is the Rev. Dr John r. Car son, ex-moderator of the General Asscm blv Among the directors Is the Rev. Dr. Maltland Alexander, moderator of the. Goneial Assembly." In accepting the cill Doctor Jarvis wrote ln part ns follows. "I am the more Inclined to accept this cill because I find mvself In perfect hirmonv with th platform of the Stonj Brook Assemblv I am so constituted that I must believe what I preach be lieve it intensely and deeplj-. "I need not remind j'ou that the con vincing appeals to the world of today .lie by ministers who hold to the faith of our fathers and believe still that the old paths lead up to the throne of grico, as they ever have done I hold to the Word of God as the standard of all thinking The modern preacher who nukes his own thoughts, or the thoughts of others, the standard by which to Judge God 3 reclatinn his gone far astraj I btlleve that the standard of interpreta tion of the things of life should be the Book, and I know that the sublime doc tiincs of grnct- contained in it are effective l tniiav In leading men to salvation.
