D?cver, Colo., Nov. 21. So urgent
are the calls from China, North. Af
rica and other mission fields that the
board of foreign missions of the Meth
od st Episcopal church has started on
a campaign for an immediate raising
of $200,000.
Telegrams were sent out to 130
wealthy Methodists to make & special
coi.'tribution to tie fund, which will
be applied to cancel the debt and thus
prevent any draft on the regular con
tributions lor the mission fields, nd
raise tn additional sum for the press
ing emergencies coming from the
countries where the need is greatest.
Two subscriptions of $1,000 acb
were received from two members of
tho board present at the session, and
confidence was expressed by the com
mittee having charge of the movement
that telegraphic responses amounting
to several thousand will be received
immediately.
The schedule of the appeal is for 20
persons to contribute $1,000 each. 40
to contribute $500 each, SO to contrib
tiate $50 each, 200 to subscribe $100.
The rest of the appeal is to be made to
churches, the entire sum to be sub
pcribd and, if possible, to be paid
before Jan. 1.

Bishop Hamilton requested each
member cf the board to furnish him ;
with a list of 10 names, and It was
from this selected list that the tele- j
grams were sent out. !
Bishop J. C. Hartzell, in speaking of :
the need In North Africa for assist- j
ence to the missionaries In their con- '
filet against Mohammedanism, said in I

Italy's relations with Turkey: !

Adds 4th Chair!
Dear Otto I am just back after a
Etay at Colfax, and my friends de
clare I am looking healthier and ,
handsomer than ever. If business
keeps up aa it has the past few years 1
I will be able to retire before I am !
a centertnarian, and live on my ac-'
cumulations the remainder of my'
days. j
You see, I can't refrain from talk-!
lng shop. Still I know that you as
a friend, will not tire of my telling
you that I am progressing. If busl-,
ness came any stronger I would eitb-j'
er have to move in larger quarters
or violate the regulation closing
hours.
Yes, I am still located up on Twen-'
tieth street, between Third and
Fourth avenues, on the ea.-U side of
the street. You remember It was free
ly predicted I would fail when I ven-'.
tured off Second avenue. I had no
ml&givings, however. You know we
are setting to be a city of such pro
portions that we can no longer con
fine our biiBiueds to a single thor
oughfare. Then, I had an idea that I
w;s confident would win with the
public. That was in running a bar
ber shop with cleanliness as the slo
gan. And. believe me, it has l)"en a win
ner from the day I opened. I am
tow running four chairs, and we are
nil busy, including the porter, whose
uril. is ;ire to scrub the place from .
"tiii" front to the b;u k door twice
