Cornellson, missionary at the Tutullla church makes the fol lowing statement concerning the meetings: A Statement. I Inke this means to make thi statement to whom It may Interest since some are asking about It. The Indian ministers that have helped In the evangelistic meeting at the Tutullla church have done so without any pay or any promise ot enumeration. The same was true Inst year when they were here, but on the last Sabbath of their stay an offering was made which was divided equally, but It only payed a small part of their railroad fare. We hope tr make a similar offering this year, but If any Interested friend wishes to en large that offering by a small gfft. such will be appreciated by the pn tor and people and missionary of the Tutullla church. Some of the business men of Pen dleton have already helped to defray the bare running expenses of tha meeting, such as programs, rent of chairs and expense of pumping water, etc., and other incidentals. Much good has been done by these meetings, all the Christians are much encouraged and the whole communi ty will feel the effect of the meetln and be the better for having bad them. This Is a plain business statement of faffs with no embellishments. X M. CORNELISON, Missionary.
