IJosTOS", Nov. II, In n certain Back
I3ny nursery them is an Incubator, nnd In
the cpieor, darkened box, Rwuthed in cot
ton wool, lies a tiny bit of humanity, bom
prematurely, nearly two months ago. The
baby is tho i-rcond child and only son of
Mr. and .Mrs. Putnam of tho Clmrlesgatc
Hotel, who have been receiving hearty
congratulations from their friends on the
little fellow's successful strtigglo for life
against bl odds.
It is nn every-day matter for babloR to
be born, but for a baby to be hatched Ls a
novel matter, and tho success of tho ex
periment is of interest to the general and
scientific world, besldo tho largo circle of
Xcarly two months ngo the baby was
born Dame Naturn had mado n mistako
of eight weeks, and thu llttlu stranger
came Into the world with Imperfect lungs
nnd digestive organs, and tho very barest
chance for life.
l)r, Itotch of Commonwealth arenue,
whose Incubator inventions havo created
such wido comment, undertook, at tho
parents' request, to
THuliti Up ulth Science
for nature's deficiencies.
So baby was wrapped in cotton wool and
laid in the padded neat of tho incubator,
the pover was clo-cd to keep out the light,
tho temperature was kept nt b degrees,
and at stated intervals the child was fed
by bottle with a light milk nourishment
specially prepared at thelaboiatory. Day
by day. like a little setding underground
or a baby chicken in its shell, tho child
has grown until now it is almost ready to
blossom out or to "chip tho shell" and
como forth Into the nimery world to
be clothed and cooulatllko other babies.
In fact it has been so far advanced that
the cover of the incubator is left open n
bit to admit light and air, the child is
taken out of Its nest, bathed and put back
again each day, and has developed sufll
cient lung power to cry in the most ng
gressiva infantile fashion.
Cautious Dr. I'.itch will have not a
word to siv about the case, but the
friends of the Piitnnins believe there is ev
ery reason to consider
The i:j.ni llilt'iit ft Succesi.
In regard to his incubator Dr. Kotch
said yesterday: "It is a very imperfect
one, incomplete and faulty in many ways,
but I hope in two or three months to put
forth a new invention, on new principles,
more scientifically adapted to its purpose,
and then, as a matter of scientific interest,
I shall be very glad to tell you all about
Meanwhile, tin in the Deacon street
nursery, tho Putnam baby is being

Prcibytery, iu compliance with tha order
ot tho hut general assembly, began to-tlny a
econd trial of Prof. C. A. Brlggi of Union
Theological seminary on tho charge of

to the Scotch rrcbyterlau churoh. The
duty of this session of tho Prosbylory, as
out-lined by the gonornl nisombly, la; (1) To
pass upon tho sufllclency of the charges
agalnit Dr. llrlggs. (2) To allow an amonil
mint of the charges If tho furthornnco of

quickly ar poitible.
Dr. H. D. Alexander, pastor ot Phllllpps

Moderator Bliss announced that the court
was In eosslou. Dr. Driggs at once arose nnd
asked for tho prlrilogo of making his prelim
inary objections against tlio status of tho
prosecuting committee, which he claimed
did not have the right to bring those
charges. Dr. Brlggs questioned the right of
the prosecuting committee to act as an or
iginal party; to act independent of tho pres
bytery; their right to act as a prosecuting
committee pending the decision of a com
plaint to tho synod, and also made other
objections. Ho maintained that the com
plaint to the synod acted as stay of proceed
ings. F.ldr John J. McCook replied to Dr.
Briggs and (aid that tho provision for a
prosecuting committoo was wlso, for only In
that way could the presbytery act in a ju

Washing-tox, Nov, 11. Whllo no official
Information has reached Washington Indi
cative of war botween Chill on tho ono
band and Peru and tbe Argcntlvo Republic
on tbo other, lbs state of affairs In those
republics caused somo npprcbonsiou in offi
cial circles here ns to the iiuraodlato future.
At tho closo ot the war In which Pont
was defoatod, Chill remained In poisesslou
ot tbo two southern provlncoi ot Peru,
namely, Tacua and Artca, In tho treaty of
peace it was stipulated that tnoie provlncoi
should continue subject to Chilian law nnd
authority for ten yoars, and thut after tho
expiration of that term a popular voto
should decide whether the province should
remain under Chilian sovereignty or return
Tho 10 year period will explro noxt Oc
tober. Meanwhile tho provinces have bo
como of great valui to Chill, commercially
and politically. The Inst revolution had
Its hendquartors nt Arlca and a large pro
portion of the population ot tbo seaboard
towns is ot Chilian birth, lint tbe mora
numerous population of tho iutorior ot tho
provinces Is supposed to bo dlsposod to re
turn to Peruvian olleglanco. Chill would
be very lonth to surrender tho provinces,
and Peru wants them In order to regain her
old strength and for stragetlu reasons.
It is easily conceivablo that heroin lios n
oonvonlent roason for a deolnrntlon cC war.
Argentina was an earnest sympathizer with
tbe late Prosidont RotmncaJa and has like
wise contractu.! nu nlllunce with Peru that
might easily eutniigli the republic In a war
betnaau the other republics.

WORK OF MISSIONS.
Third luy of tho Convention of ChrlMlan
Boston, Nov. 14. The third day ot tho
convention was marked by nn even larger
audience than on the preceding days.
There were no vacant suts on the floor.
Rev. R. A. Torrey presided, as usual, and
the session was opened with the usual de
votional services led by J. C. Smith of
James P. Hall of Philadelphia, took thu
platform at ti.HO o'clock, nud told what in
being done at the Hedford sitrcct mlpsloti
of the Quaker City. A special featuro of
this work, which lies In one of the moat
wretched quarters of the city, i.s a kinder

Khun is attended by over 1C0 nightly.
'Tliero is a temperance society a:ul Sunday
K. H. R.ikcr of Ware, Mass., npoko
briefly of the work-being dono by the
Christian Workers of that place. This
society, with a membership of les3 than
thirty, sucee'tls in caring very success
fully for the neglected districts in tho
neighborhood. House to bouse visitations
nro made, and open-air meetings are held.
There havo nlready been 100 conversions
nud a general revival of religious inferust
1ms been aroused.
Harry Miinroe, a former Boston "sport"
and gambler, gave an interesting account
of the Pacific (larden mission, Chicago.
This was started tlxteeu years ago by
(tcorge R. Clark, who died n few months
ngo. It has been wonderfully mcccssfiil,
The mission is located Jn n very degraded
distri-.t. Its features embrace hospital
work, house-to-house visitations and it
kiiiili'i'gai'tun for the childien. There
wero iii'.i open-air meetings hold under tlio
auspices of the mission this year, and a
great many converts havu been made.
.Miss Agues L. Good of Toronto told of
her vacation work among the factory girls
and others of Hint Canadian city. This
work included street preaching, in which
some of thu wealthiest young men o To
ronto, in connection with n go-ipel cur
ring.;, assisted. Tliero are also.ilarL'o num
ber of well-connected young ladies who
have taken an active interest in the work.
Alter "This is My Story" had been sung
by the audience, W. H. 1 Ion-laud of Tor
onto spoku on thu subject ot "Christian
Nurses for the Sick Poor." He thought
this a very important part of mission
work, and it is carrying out the Idea con
tained in thu scriptural saying, "I was
sick and yu visited me." 'There is a gooil
deal of so-c illed Christian work that has
lots of kindness and imitation of Christ
iu it, but theic is
Nothing I.llin the Ileal Tiling.
Thespeaker gave the balance of his time
to one ot his ns-ociates, Mr. Sampson. He
spoku first of tliewoik of evangelization
done in one of the cannibal islands by a
certain missionary, and said that the Sab
bath that prevails there today could not
be duplicated from one end of America to
the other. As to thu wot k performed by
these Toronto nurses, thu speaker said
that there were four of these, two of them
siii-csilly trained, and that they had madu
ti.Td visits at thu homes of the sick poor
last year, most of thu cases being women.
It is often impossible to remove somo of
these cases to a regular hospital, on ac
count of tho serious disarrangement of
household nll'airs that will result.
Miss A. li. Melntyre of Toronto, ono of
the young ladies w ho nets as a Christian
niiisu among tbo poor in that city, also
gave a few of her personal experiences.
Sumo of these wero of a very touching
nature. .Miss Richardson of Toronto also
spoke ou the samu line.
Dr. Oeorgu 1). Dowknntt of New York
next spoke on the work of tne Interna
tional Medical .Missionary society.
Following a very line solo by the blind
singers, Mrs. 11. M. Whittemoru of Nt.w

The speaker told in an interesting way
how she ha 1 for years visited tbo most,
disreputable duns and dives of the
