(i. M. Liverman. NATCHlSOC'HEn, LA., Sept. 1, ISnO. We, your committee on Churches and Parsonages beg leave to submit the following report: After compil ing the report of the stations, circuits and mission composing Shreveport District, we find thirty-four houses of worship on the District with 28150 sittings. Titles are all well secured and recorded as the law requires. Two thousand eight hundred and eleven dollars and ton cents have been collected for church buildings and repairs this year. While Natbch. itoches, Coushatta, Mansfield and Keachie can boast of nice church editices, some circuits do not even report a lot deeded to the church for the erection of a house or houses of worship. Per reports from the va rious works there are only six par. sonages in the District and one or two of them not in a very good con dition and poorly furnished. In one instance we find a full outllt for Parsonage and no house. This, under the circumstances, is unavoidable and no one is to blame but to the contrary commendable. We your committee do not feel justified in closing this report without calling your attention to the deftlicieny in number of houses of worship to ccm parison to the number of church or ganizations reported. This in our judgement ought to be remedied as soon as possible. It is our belief that no church organization can ex. long and be instrumental of much rood that is not permanently dom cled in the community. Therefore, we your committee would submit the following resolu tions: let. Resolved, That it is the sense and desire of this Conference that Preachers and Laymen take steps Immediately to secure lots by deed In every community where we have organization and no house of divine worshia td Resolved, That in building church houses we should as near as possible follow the plan or plans given in Patterson's Manauel of Ar ehIteetare which can be had at our publishing house ian ashvllleTenn., and recommendled by Bishop Mar vin. 3d. Resolved, That Pastors be reo auested to secure lots of land by deed on their respective workq on wbhteh to bujlid a parsonage wlere none exist. All of which is submitted. O. M. LINERMAN, Chairman of Committee. REPORT ON nODUCATION. Your committei Ta glad to report that the subject of education is one olf general interest throughout our Distrit. New schools 'have been cammeaneed and old ones are flour ishinar. We have only one Metho. dist lnstitution, the Mansfield Foe male ollege. Rev. Theeo, Arms strong reesped his position last June, andane some delay the board of managers have secured the ser vies of brother J. Lane Borden. Brother Borden is a teacher of ex perienee and of fine eduoational quaillostion. Although he has had buat little thlme to work since his ac_ eptance the proespeets are brighter and everything points to a suceses frul, prosperots session. Although the~bllege is, properly speaking, lth property of the entire Annual Con forence still in consequence of the present lack of eommaunietion its entlre support must come from our District. Therefore, it is inceumbent on us to do our beet for it. If we sup. port It, it will flourish, but if we hold aloof or give it a falint support it must go down and Methodlism will be put back a generatlion in our Dis triot. We offer the followlIg resoln 1st. Resolved, That we pledge our I y support to Mansfield Female _l'1ekhat we auhesitatingly com mn-d it to all having daughters to ai.

Br.rn tn: Your committeo to whom was referred the spiritual state of the church beg leave to report, that when we survey the broad fields of Moth. odism with its millions of members, Its ponderous machinery, its daily increasing membership on every I-:l land ~ini continent of the world, we have reason for profound gratitude to Almighty (led, and at the same time have reasons to fear lost we should unt act worthy of the blos. sings a Rind Providence has extend, to us, to e'ar, lent we look more to numbers, and financial strongth than to The spiritual welfare of our zion. And while the glad tidings of success and vietory, is being borne upon every breeze from all quarters of the globe, our own district has not been idle, hblt 1h nobly and success fully pressing onward, and hearing her part in the granl work of the world's redemptiotan. Under the devotion, zeal, energy, ability and self denial of our preach. era, we have received during the four years past 1750 members, and have had fully that number of con. versions. All over the distrlet new houses of worsbip, parsonages and campgrounds are being built, and much lnterest is being manifested in our church by those from without. We have in this district 202' morn bers and have had, this year, 1rt ac cessions, and 124 conversions; 45 in fants have been Iaptized. 9.) per cent of the members take roommu alon, There are ,o00 persons preached to on the district by our preachors. About 20 per ent of the headsof families hold family worship. Trhe attondence upon public wor ship I unusually good, Outr prayer meetings. 1s; in number, are well at. tended. Only 5 regularly organized class meetinsa have been reported. Our tmembers, with Bomo ex ceptions, are orderly and conosin tent, but yet there Is much room tfor improvoment, a need of holler lihes and a more orderlty walk. The above figures show a considerable increase in our ranks and we think conslde rable growth in spirituality, andt could we have had reports from all the circuits and stations in the dis trict, we have no doubt that our ri port would have been more gratify. lg to those who feel an Interest in the church. Five of our circuits and stations.have not been heard from, andamong them somne of our most important works. Breothren, loet us take courage and return to our respective fields of la. bor with renewed energy and -eal for the master's cause, more fully dI. termined to live above reproach and to work more faithfully for the sahva ties of souls. I~e iveod that we will endeavor by al posasible means to elevate the stadard of religion and urge our people on to a higher state in the divine life. With deep and profound gratitude to the great head of the church for his goodness and continued mercies this report and resolution is submit ' I.. AsPiDVt, Uairman.
