and mi intended to aupply tha want of a
pastoral residence until tha congregation

home on the ground adjoining their
church building.
Tha M. E congregation has received a
bid of $5,600 for their old parsonage and

The Lord knows cases oMhis kind create
enough grief without inviting more by
this light, jollying treatment of them by

influenced by what it reads, and when
such offences against the social order as
