VOL. L.     MARCH, 1896.     No. 3.


One-third of the fiscal year passed on Feb. 1st without any special
campaign of appeals in behalf of the debt and the suffering work of the
American Missionary Association. We have constantly reported to its
supporting churches and friends the exact financial condition of the
Association. We have reiterated the call voted at our Annual Meeting for
such enlargement of support as will bring the receipts of this
semi-centennial year up to $500,000. We have emphasized the urgency of
the present and prospective needs of the work.

We are sensible of the pressure made upon the churches to increase their
benefactions along the different lines of the Congregational mission
service. We rejoice over their increased offerings in this critical
period, although the support of their work through the American
Missionary Association has not been increased. Their contributions to
the Association in these past four months stand at about the disastrous
figure of the corresponding period last year. The other eight months of
that year suffered from a disheartening reduction which raised the total
debt to nearly a hundred thousand dollars. If the coming eight months
are to bring the same proportionate reduction which the corresponding
eight months of last year suffered, we frankly say now and here that a
new debt will be incurred in addition to the old one. We cannot avoid it
and we cannot remain silent about it.

What now? Must our debt grow? We cannot reduce our working forces on the
instant. We cannot at once call off our missionaries whom we have
engaged for the current year and to whom we have pledged their support.
They have both the moral and the legal right to their support for the
time stipulated. This is a necessity in the administration of the
missionary societies which are called to employ large numbers of
missionaries. They must keep faith with their workers.

What now? Reduction? Within the last three years we have reduced our
work by $124,000. But our receipts were reduced in increasing measure
each year by a total of $224,000. Further reduction? Yes, as soon as
possible, under present engagements, if it must be so. Is this the
decision of the Christian people in the churches? Is it wise? Is it
necessary? Must the life-blood of these missions to the poorest, the
most needy of all the peoples in America be shed? Does not the condition
of these lowly and helpless millions cry out to God against it?

The American Missionary Association has been providentially called to
minister to the down-trodden, the submerged millions of our common
country. Their distressful needs are in danger of being left aside in
the pressure of other worthy appeals for aid. Will not the thoughtful,
the large-minded and large-hearted, who lead in every benevolent service
of the churches, come to the rescue of this imperiled Christian service?
Will they not make this fiftieth year of the American Missionary
Association a year of jubilee by bringing an advance of at least a
hundred thousand dollars before the assembling of our great Boston
Convention in October?

BISHOP HAYGOOD.--The recent death of Atticus G. Haygood of the
Methodist Episcopal Church South has removed a very useful man from
among those who are conscientiously engaged in the uplifting of the
colored people and in promoting harmony between the two races in the
South. In the writing of his books and his numerous articles for the
press, in his conscientious administration of the Slater Fund and in his
work as Bishop, he has rendered a permanent benefit to his church and
the country.


Since the publication, in a recent number of THE MISSIONARY, of
the list of the documents ready for distribution on application of our
friends, we add the following:

Annual Report of the Association.

Sermon by Rev. WM. HAYES WARD, D.D., "Instead of thy Fathers
shall be thy Children."

Citizenship and Christianity, by Rev. SHERROD SOULE.

The Debt of Our Country to the American Highlanders During the
War, by Secretary C. J. RYDER. (Reprint, illustrated.)

"GREAT TRUTHS SIMPLY TOLD" is the title of a most excellent
little book compiled by Prof. George L. Wood, of Philadelphia. A special
fund has been contributed by a friend interested in the circulation of
this useful little volume, which makes it possible for us to offer to
our missionaries a limited number, if they will write asking for the
same. We are very glad to be able in this way to give a wider
circulation to this valuable book, which will prove useful in teaching
Christian truth.

INCREASED GIFTS.--We are glad to learn that the Prospect Hill
Church, Somerville, Mass., of which Rev. E. S. Tead is pastor, have just
added 65 per cent. to their gifts of last year to our work. The Grace
Church of South Framingham, of which Rev. F. E. Emrich is pastor, have
also increased their gifts by about $200 over last year.


On an ever-memorable day, the Son of Man rode into Jerusalem. A vast
multitude of people thronged the streets and cast their garments and
palm branches before Him, and with unbounded enthusiasm cried "Hosanna
in the highest!" But only a few days later that same multitude, as cruel
as they were fickle, followed the Son of Man with the fiendish cry
"Crucify him! crucify him!" ceasing not until he hung on the cross, and
then they taunted him with sneers and mockings.

The followers of the Son of Man are sometimes called in their measure to
pass through almost similar circumstances changing from the highest
praise to the bitterest denunciation. Dr. Theodore L. Cuyler, that grand
old man, who surpasses all others of this generation in his knowledge of
the great men of his times and in his accurate and vivid descriptions of
them, has given, in a recent article in _The Evangelist_, a striking
sketch of some of the prominent clergymen and laymen of this city two
generations past:

"The death of that noble Christian philanthropist, William A. Booth,
removes from us about the last survivor of a remarkable group of men who
for three-quarters of a century impressed themselves most deeply on the
religious life of New York and the whole country. Among the earlier
members of this group were the brothers, Arthur and Lewis Tappan, Harlan
Page, Anson G. Phelps, Moses Allen, R. T. Haines, W. W. Chester, and
Joshua Leavitt, who was one of the earliest editors of _The Evangelist_.
Later on we come upon the names of William E. Dodge, Christopher R.
Robert, William A. Booth, Apollos Wetmore, R. M. Hartley, Robert Carter,
James Brown, and Jesse W. Benedict. Other names might be added to this
roll of honor, but these were representative and conspicuous.

"As far back as 1825 Arthur Tappan might have been called the most
prominent Christian layman in New York. His moral courage and
philanthropic zeal made him on a humbler scale what Lord Shaftesbury
became on a larger scale in London. Those were days of foundation-laying
of great religious enterprises. The Home Missionary Society, the
American Temperance Society, the American Sunday-school Union, and
the Seamen's Friend Society were born about that time. In February,
1825, Arthur Tappan sent on to Boston for the Rev. Wm. A. Hallock,
who before sunrise on a winter morning presented himself at Mr.
Tappan's door. They called together a few warm-hearted Christians--among
whom were Messrs. Allen, Haines, and Chester--and the American Tract
Society was organized, and its new building was erected. It was while
in the employ of the Tract Society that Harlan Page did his wonderful
work as a consecrated laborer for the conversion of souls."

It was not Dr. Cuyler's purpose to follow these men in their later
experiences. But we take the liberty of doing so in respect to one of
the persons named, Arthur Tappan, of whom Dr. Cuyler says that as far
back as 1825 he might have been called "the most prominent Christian
layman in New York." If we step down nine years to 1834, we shall find
that same Arthur Tappan ostracized by his former associates, ridiculed
and denounced by the press, a reward of $50,000 offered for his head,
and his store assailed by an infuriated mob, and defended inside by Mr.
Tappan and his little band of clerks, of whom the editor and proprietor
of _The Independent_ was then one. It is not too much to say that in
1834 Arthur Tappan was the best-abused man in New York.

It may be asked with surprise, What had made this great change? The
answer is simple: He had become an _abolitionist_. The same zeal in the
Master's cause which led him to do so much in founding and sustaining
the great missionary and benevolent enterprises, induced him to assist
the anti-slavery cause, which had then come forward. He felt a profound
sympathy for the oppressed slave, and rejoiced to do what he could to
secure his emancipation.

It should be remarked that Mr. Tappan did not agree with those
abolitionists who denounced the Constitution and the Church. On the
contrary, he took a leading part in the formation of a new anti-slavery
society that was established in opposition to those extremists. He was
the president of that new society for many years. Mr. Tappan used the
same quiet and unassuming methods in giving his time, influence, and
money to the anti-slavery cause as he did to the other benevolent and
missionary enterprises.

Now we think that the Son of Man, assailed by the mob in the Garden and
crucified on Calvary that He might save the world, was more exalted, and
revealed His divine character more distinctly, than when He was
surrounded by the hosannas of the thoughtless and fickle mob. So, in
like manner and at a humble distance, Arthur Tappan reached his highest
point of honor as a patriotic Christian man when, for the sake of the
poor and downtrodden slaves, he was willing to bear reproach and
jeopardize his life in their behalf.

Mr. Tappan and his associates, fifty years ago, founded the American
Missionary Association amid the obloquy and danger that surrounded
anti-slavery people in that day; and now, as the Association is
rejoicing in its successful and honored work in this its Jubilee year,
we take pleasure in its behalf in testifying to the courage and
self-sacrificing labors of its founders.

_From The Independent._



It would appear that there was a certain definite loss to the cause of
Christianity among the Indians when that work ceased to be called
Foreign Missions, and became Home Missions. In the face of much
opposition and many sneers since the day it first discovered its
"marching orders," the Church has never ceased to believe it to be its
duty to go out into all the world and preach the gospel, and
persecution, neglect, or starvation have only served to intensify its
zeal. It _must_ preach the gospel to the heathen. But in regard to Home
Missions the Church has felt that it _may_ preach the gospel to
neighbors, not that it _must_--that it is a good and desirable thing to
do, but by no means an inexorable duty. If the Indians had remained
foreign heathen, we might hope for a Students' Volunteer movement, for
an Inland Mission, for a zeal beyond wisdom which even sets forth to
preach the gospel in the midst of war. The Indians are as pagan as the
Japanese or the Hindus, for instance: their redemption is as great a
necessity as the redemption of the Chinese. Their chiefs plead for help
and teachers in no less touching fashion than do South African kings.
But those fill us with missionary zeal. We cry unto heaven for money and
opportunity to go over seas to convert those; but these, the heathen in
our very midst, most of us neither see nor hear. Can it be because there
is neither romance nor mystery about these others? The test of the
reality of our zeal is before us here and now. We may measure the value
of our professions for ourselves.

At this present time the need of the Indians for missionaries is greater
than ever before. They have reached not only a new crisis, but a crisis
of a new kind. Practically speaking the Government has done what it can
for them, or very nearly all. The Indian has law, land, education, he is
fast becoming absorbed in the surrounding people, but never was he in
worse need. All these great fundamental principles of social life have
been thrust upon him, oft against his will and largely unprepared;
certainly with very little comprehension of their resulting privileges
or duties. He needs a friend beside him at every step. Thrust out into
an alien and hostile community, he is in some sense in a worse case than
when he dwelt alone in undisturbed barbarism.

And again, civilization is not Christianity. This truth, so obvious
everywhere else, seems to be lost sight of when the Indians are
considered. We discover that, although educated, they will not stay
refined, that they are civilized, but will not remain moral. Behold,
says the caviller, there is no good Indian until he dies, and even his
friends complain that the young men will "go back" to gambling games and
horse races. It is true that some measure of refinement and fine morals
is peculiarly necessary to the Indians just now, but these are not any
necessary part of civilization. They are, however, inseparable to
Christianity, and by this token the red man needs Christianity for his
everyday life even more than the white man, who is surrounded by a
Christian atmosphere. If we would have the newly-liberated Indians a
valuable and reliable part of the community in this world they must be
Christianized. Just why goes back a long way; but a fact it is, that
whatever may be true of Chinese or Poles or Bohemians, if the Indian is
to have any staying power, if he is to be anything but a despair to his
friends and a curse to all around him, he must be _converted_ as well as
civilized. The use of his land, the best system of law, an absolute
restriction upon liquor, all together, will do no more for him in the
Northwest than it has done for Cherokee or Choctaw. It is the building
up of the individual that is needed to-day quite as much as any
legislation which shall improve the community.

Not only has the Indian come to a time of special need, not only does he
need Christianity to make his land and his education of any value, not
only is his law unsupported by his own character of little worth, but he
needs Christian missionaries more and more, because he has ceased to be
the Indian and become Indians. It is peculiarly true that every tribe,
every group, every family almost, has reached a different state of need.
The varying pressure of circumstances combined with the differing
methods of education furnished the children, has brought the race to a
time and place when it needs many, many helpers, who, living with them
as Thomas Riggs has lived with them, will find their reward in their
growth and development. Wherever the Riggs family live, there the Indian
problem is solved. Where Bishop Hare and Mary Collins work the answer is
already plain. Let the Omahas without any missionary testify also to the
darker side of the question.

It is not further efforts by the churches for the education of the
Indian that are needed. There are many schools, good, bad, and
indifferent, but still schools, and it is certain that the Government
will attend to the education difficulty. But it is missionaries that
the Indian needs; missionaries to convert heathen. This is an inglorious
service and one of plenteous hardship, but beyond measure it is a
patriotic service, beyond measure it is the work of Him whose "all the
world" began "at Jerusalem," who taught us to find Himself wherever the
least of His children were in sore need.


The following letter from Rev. J. S. Porter, Missionary of the American
Board, will explain itself. Will there not be among those who shall read
it some one who would like to purchase the remaining coins given by the
poor little orphan girl in Bohemia for the colored people? If so, our
Treasurer, H. W. Hubbard, will forward the coins upon application from
those who would like to purchase one or more of them. A Christian lady
in Detroit, who abounds in good works, has generously sent us $25 for
one of the coins:

    "PRAGUE, BOHEMIA, Sept. 14, 1895.

    "Enclosed find seven Austrian crowns, the gift of a little orphan
    girl, Marie Kuchera. She wanted to do something for the colored
    people, and this is her offering. Her pastor wished me to send the
    original crowns that she gave. Some two years ago I was called into
    the country, an hour and a half away, to officiate at the communion
    service of a poor consumptive mother and widow. It was a joy to see
    her sweet patient endurance during all the long hours she was
    waiting for her Lord. She had not long to wait.

    "The little girl who sends these seven crowns--which equal $1.40 in
    our money--was the little one she left an orphan. Their home is a
    humble one, only one living room, and yet in this humble cottage she
    is learning to open her heart to the great needs of her Master's
    kingdom, and rejoices to send these offerings for the poor black


The following letter tells the story of the remarkable career of a
Christian minister, whose activity was maintained through a long life,
and whose self-denial enabled him to accumulate handsome sums of money
to be bestowed on worthy objects of benevolence. His sympathies were not
narrow, but widespread, and his genial love of children continued to his
latest days:

"My father, Rev. Otis Holmes, of Lake Grove, L. I., was an enthusiast in
missions, and never let the time of the missionary concerts go by
without attendance. His salary was never above $800 per year--latterly
only $400--and during his last years, to save the Home Missionary
Society, he gave his services. By rigid economy and incessant toil, with
no vacation during fifty years, he laid aside $1,500 for missions, $500
to the American Board, $500 to the American Missionary Association, $500
to the Home Missionary Society. He gave, too, a parsonage lot, and
contributed largely to two parsonages.

"In his earlier ministry he came in contact with pro-slavery
parishioners, and ever and always stood up for the slave, and at no
little sacrifice. And so upon the temperance question, at the age of
eighty and upwards he would arouse most intense enthusiasm in meeting.
None were heard oftener or more gladly. He had great strength and vigor
and rarely ever missed an appointment. No weather detained him. He won
many souls to Christ, and was quite often called away to revival work.
He was exceedingly fond of children and entered heartily into their
pastimes. He died at Lake Grove at the age of nearly ninety-one, and was
an active pastor at the age of eighty-four. He died honored of his
ministerial brethren, whom he ardently loved, and was mourned by a large
number whom he had benefited during his ministry. Such a life of labor
and love should make its appeal to a selfish and skeptical world."

In Memoriam.


The death of this honored servant of God, January 27, at his house in
Talladega, Ala., was sudden and unexpected. Although he has suffered for
several years past under impaired health, yet on the day preceding the
accident he appeared unusually well. He had performed his usual college
duties, attended and spoken at the memorial services for Dr. Cutler on
the afternoon of Friday, and was present at the college social on Friday
night. The accident occurred on Saturday. He arose early in the morning,
as was his custom, and made preparations for his usual bath. On crossing
the hall at the head of the stairway he fell down the entire flight and
was found stretched out, face downward, on the lower floor. The family
came speedily to his relief. Help was summoned from the neighborhood and
medical attendance secured. It was the doctor's opinion that the fall
was due to an apopleptic stroke, which seized him while in the upper
hall and rendered him powerless to either prevent the fall or hinder its
continued progress. Funeral services were held on Tuesday forenoon,
which were attended by many of the best citizens of Talladega, two of
the pastors of the Talladega churches speaking warmly and
sympathetically of Dr. De Forest and of the institution over which he
had presided. Mrs. De Forest and her daughter, accompanied by one of the
professors of the institution, attended the remains to their last
resting place in Sherburne, N. Y.

Dr. De Forest was of Huguenot descent; was born in So. Edmeston, N. Y.,
March 17, 1833, was graduated from Yale College in 1857, and obtained
his theological education at Yale and Union theological seminaries. He
was ordained in New Haven, August 2, 1863, and served as chaplain in the
Eleventh Connecticut Volunteers during the civil war. He was called to
the pastorate of Plymouth Congregational Church, Des Moines, Iowa.,
October 17, 1866, where he remained until October, 1879, when he
accepted the call to the Presidency of Talladega College, Talladega,
Ala., a position he has filled with great acceptance to the day of his
death. He was married August 25th, 1869, to Miss Anna M. Robbins,
daughter of Rev. Alden B. Robbins, D.D., of Muscatine, Iowa.

Dr. De Forest was a man of fine personal presence, affable in manner,
gifted as a speaker, a scholar, and a man of practical affairs. His life
has been varied, but in whatever position he has been employed he has
soon won the confidence and esteem of those with whom he has been


This estimable lady, after four years of severe but patient suffering
from neuralgia, passed away Sunday afternoon, December 22, at her home
in Deerfield, Mass. Miss Williams was a native of Deerfield, an old
historic town in the Connecticut Valley, and a descendant of Rev. T.
Williams, who was taken captive by the Indians. During the war of the
Rebellion Miss Williams was sent by the National Freedman's Aid Society
to labor among the Freedmen of Port Royal Island, S. C. With a
commission and a Government permit alone she found her mission field.
The following year was spent at Richmond, Va., teaching among the
refugees who had come into the city at the close of the war. The next
year she taught a large school in Washington, D. C., at Kendall Green,
and in the autumn of 1867, accompanied by her sister, Miss P. A.
Williams, she began her work at Hampton, Va., teaching in the Butler and
Lincoln schools. After the new building was completed, the sisters were
transferred to the Normal school, which they organized, and the success
of which was largely due to their indefatigable labors. Miss Williams
was connected with the institution two years when she was appointed by
the American Missionary Association as Principal of the Stanton Normal
Institute, Jacksonville, Fla., where she remained seven years.

Miss Williams always secured the confidence and esteem of those with and
for whom she labored, and was considered one of the most efficient
teachers in the employ of the Association.

The South.


The popular Governor of Mississippi, Hon. J. M. Stone, who has filled
the responsible position of chief executive for a greater length of time
than any other person since the formation of the State government, in
his last message to the Senate and House of Representatives called
especial attention to Tougaloo University, as follows:

"Although Tougaloo University is not a State institution, I desire, in
its behalf, to convey to you in this parting message a word of warm and
sincere commendation. No school in the South is conducted upon higher
principles, and its good effects are felt throughout the State. By way
of recognition of its great merit, and for the high esteem in which its
principal is held in the community, the Board of Visitors has been
continued from term to term, and I recommend that a Board be appointed
by the Governor for the next biennial year."

As Governor Stone has repeatedly visited Tougaloo, he speaks with
personal knowledge of our great work in the "Black Belt." In
agricultural and industrial work Tougaloo is not excelled in the South,
while the standard of scholarship is greatly superior to that of
industrial schools which seek only elementary attainment.



Christmas in Gregory Normal Institute does not mean simply _receiving_,
but we have what has proved to us, after a trial of two years, a much
better plan--that of _giving_. It is truly surprising how much can be
given, even by those who it would seem are too poor to give anything. On
Thursday, December 19, it was announced by the principal in all the
rooms that all who could bring a Christmas offering might do so on
Friday, the last day of the term before the holidays. Before eight a.m.
Friday the articles began to come in, and the variety would discount any
country grocery store, I am sure. Flour, meat, rice, grits, cracked
peas, beans, potatoes, apples, turnips, cabbages, greens, onions, sugar,
tea, coffee, eggs, bacon, wood, kindling, matches, soap, pictures,
thread, needles, pins, and in fact almost every article that can be
eaten or worn or made use of in any way. Quite a good deal of money was
contributed, and that was used for buying articles for needy persons.

What struck me most forcibly was the willing and cheerful giving. Some
things came from homes where there was scarcely to be found as much more
of the same thing as was brought. I must mention an instance of real
sacrifice, though the things brought will seem, without doubt, to those
who read this article, as of but little worth. One little girl we had
picked out of the most wretched hovel only a few weeks before, so ragged
that except for pity you would wish her out of sight; and when I saw her
coming in with her gift I thought, "What can she bring?" Well, she
brought all she had to bring--literally her whole wealth--a few dirty
little picture cards which some one had given to her and which she had
treasured "lo, these many years," judging from the dirt accumulated on
them. The gift seemed trivial, but it meant something to this little
girl. Hundreds there are in this very city who are in no school--who
can't attend for want of money. Oh that God's treasures could be used to
save his own dear children!

Thank God there are many who hold a little of God's gold who have laid
it on the altar for His use! I wish some of the consecrated gifts I have
received and used for two poor children, with the accompanying letters,
were not so sacred; I should feel like mentioning some--where a poor
factory girl sent one dollar, with a "God bless you!" and where a good
mother in Israel sent fifty cents in stamps, saying, "This is my
consecration money of three months." So poor was she that the
accumulation was by a penny now and then. Many larger amounts I have
received, but all with the same cheerful "God bless you!" that so cheers
the heart of the missionary far from home and loved ones.

PRAYER WITH A BACKBONE.--The pastor of one of our smaller
churches in the South, describing the concert of prayer held in behalf
of the Association, tells this brief but pithy story about it: "The
objects and purposes and work of the American Missionary Association
were briefly reviewed at the prayer-meeting, and the prayers in its
behalf were fervent and earnest. But we shall not cease, but continue to
pray for your success. Inclosed please find one dollar as a sort of
backbone to our prayers."


A teacher in the mountain field gives in a recent letter some of the
answers that came in from the pupils in their examination papers. Some
of them are amusing.

"Climate is the combined space of heat and moisture."

"The solar system is situated in that part of the heavens called the
Milky Way."

"The polar circle is parallel, running slanting round the earth."

"It is the wind's duty to refresh and cherish the earth."

"A volcano is the safety-valve of an earthquake."

Digestive organs are termed "dijective organs," and the different races
of men were given as "Indians, Negroes, Whites, and French."



I have recently witnessed the result of a Kentucky riot, the first since
I came here. Two desperate factions met on the night of the 25th, at
eleven o'clock. Four men and a woman were engaged in it. The leader of
the first faction fired and shot the leader of the second faction in his
own house, and another of the first faction fired at the leader of the
second faction till he fell with two balls through his left arm, one
ball broke his right leg, and two balls went into his back. The leader
of the second faction shot the leader of the first faction in the right
leg and he fell; both men lying within a few feet of each other. The
wife of the leader of the second faction took one of his pistols and
started to kill the first leader, but one of his men stepped up with two
revolvers and told her not to fire, that he would kill her if she did.
This ended the shooting. The first faction helped to carry the leader of
the second faction in the house and then took the first leader away.
They used 32 and 44 calibers.

The first leader lives four miles from my house. When they told him he
could not live he asked them to send for me. I went and helped dress his
wounds and sung and prayed with him. He said he had been a bad man, and
asked me to pray for him. I heard to-day that some of his friends wanted
him to send for some other minister, but he said no, he wanted no one
but myself; and I expect to go and see him to-morrow if he is still
living. I believe in the near future we will have a good hold in eastern
Kentucky, if the American Missionary Association is successful in
getting the right ministers. The minister's wife has a great deal to do
with his success in this work.



At noon, the 16th, I reached Rev. Mr. ----'s home, and after dinner he
hitched up his horse, and we set out for ----, some twelve miles away,
reaching there at dark. 'Twas here I heard the wonderful story of ----'s
rescue and salvation through Bro. ----, one of Rev. Mr. ----'s converts.
Next morning I met the Sunday-school and addressed it. Then came the
after-service, and it was a pleasure to look into those faces and preach
the gospel message, which was so earnestly and anxiously received, and
to think that only six months before a preacher could not come into this
valley to preach and be safe. Some were shot, others thrashed, and
because of the low element located there the place was given up as

Our Bro. ----, in his quiet way, went into the homes and gained them by
personal contact, and for six months held meetings, during which they
were constrained to surrender to Christ. I had the pleasure of hearing
some thirty tell the story of how our A. M. A. preacher won them. It was
a marvelous work, and the good part is the activity that characterizes
each member. Of the sixty members belonging to Rev. Mr. ----'s churches
fifty-seven are praying members, and _all_ sixty take active part in
testimony. A most cordial relation exists between pastor and people. We
held an afternoon service at another one of Rev. Mr. ----'s churches,
where I had the privilege of talking and meeting the friends.

A MOTHER TEACHING REVENGE.--"We know the mother in the home of
the mountaineer is a strong influence. How important that she be trained
to occupy this position! I have sat at the fireside and heard the mother
relate the story of a murder and turn to her eldest boy and say, 'Mind
ye, if ever ye meet up with him, you'll not forget to do what ye'er
mammy learned ye to do.' And that boy will not forget unless the grace
of God keep him."

AN INTERESTING CONVERSION.--The month has been a most blessed
one to us at Deer Lodge. The meetings were not large in numbers, but
they were rich in power and full of spiritual blessings. The report that
---- was converted spread quickly, and a large number came last night to
see and hear him. He had been a wicked man for many years, and now his
change is marked, and he proposes to live as near the Christian life as
possible. He commenced to read the Bible, and reads a chapter both
morning and evening. He told me last night, "I cannot read much, but my
wife can help me, and so together we shall help each other." Oh, how
much joy it would give us if the Holy Spirit would sweep into his
kingdom a number of other precious souls at this place. We shall pray
and work for this end. The young ladies who accepted Christ now take
part in our meetings, and it is no small pleasure to hear them testify
for Christ.

A COMMUNION SERVICE.--"We had a pleasant communion service last
Sunday. Six young people joined in regular Congregational form after
careful examination. We had previously elected a new member, who was a
pupil in the school last year, to be deacon immediately upon his joining
the church. One of those who joined the church made an attempt on my
life last year. Though he is nearly as old as I he is now a docile pupil
in the fourth-reader grade."

HEATHERLY CHAPEL.--The new church in the mountain field, in
Tennessee was organized in November, and is called Heatherly Chapel. It
is enjoying a very interesting revival season. About fifty have been
hopefully converted, twenty-two having joined the new church. This new
church is an important addition to the work which the American
Missionary Association is accomplishing in the mountain field.

A USEFUL CHURCH.--From Corbin comes the message of deep
spiritual interest and large usefulness in the church. At the last
communion five were added and the work still goes on very encouragingly.
A Sunday-school is carried on by the Christian Endeavorers of the Corbin
church in a community near by.

CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR SOCIETY.--A Young People's Society of
Christian Endeavor was organized at La Follette, Tenn., early in
December. Thirteen members united with this society and much enthusiasm
was manifested.

The Indians.



We reached the Missouri at dark. A heavy gale tossed the water and
whirled the sand. Can any one hear across the water, or are we to spend
the October night in the timber? The Lord had provided for His work. A
dark figure appeared on the bluff against the fading light. "Di tapi'o?"
is the call across (Who are you?). "Ho-washte" (I am Good Voice) is the
reply. The figure, like the man of Macedonia; the reply, "a voice crying
in the wilderness." The man was Good Bird. He had come out, expecting
his wife, and found us.

The wind had sunk the flat-boat, and our horse had to wait in the brush
till morning. I cared for him, while the carpenter and Good Bird
crossed. Two other Indians came for me. The wind lulled and the dark
flood flowed silently. Their leaky skiff was plugged with mud. One
rowed, the other watched in the shadows for the landing. I bailed with a
tin can. The current swung us in, and we lugged our tools and provisions
and bedding up a sand slide, and slept in the "Independence Station" log

We had made several visits during the summer. Once the whole family
stayed a week. We won the affections of Mrs. Pedi'tska-Kadi'shta (Little
Crow), so that she paddled Mrs. Hall over in her hide "bull-boat," on
our return, for twenty-five cents.

Then our trained nurse left her hospital room and visiting work at Fort
Berthold and kept up the routine, and also treated about twenty patients
among these Mandans.

This time we had come to finish the house for winter, before the lady
missionary's return from her vacation. Four women plastered outside with
a mixture of mud and dry grass. This is woman's part of house-building
here, I was laborer and cook and preacher for three days, and then left
the carpenter plastering inside.

The Mandans are friendly, but much behind our Rees at Fort Berthold.
Dead bodies in rough boxes lie on the ground on a knoll not far from our
house, and near by is an old-style earth lodge.

At Christmas we had more than 125 people out. A cedar tree hung full of
presents. All had a good meal, except plates, which some were not very
familiar with. A crowd of big men reached out eagerly for the luxury of
red apples.



This station is named for Mr. Moody, who gave money to start it. The
place is a hill in the midst of a valley independent of the bluffs on
either side and so Awatahesh--Independence.

Mr. A. P. Nichols, of Haverhill, Mass., kindly offered $200 if we would
reopen the station. We have done so, trusting to our friends for $300
more for the year. The work is yet in the dough, but the yeast is in and
it is rising.

Our Elbowoods station began far out in the wilderness in a log house
like the Independence meeting-house. The Government, after several
years, planted its central agency by our station and so brought many
under our influence. Now we have a new dwelling, with a chapel attached,
and the congregation have raised $130 toward the expense.

[Illustration: DWELLING. CHAPEL.


These stations are the spokes of which the Fort Berthold
boarding-school and hospital and church work are the hub. Every hub must
have spokes--as here. If you rim the whole with some of your silver or
gold, and bolt it on with prayer the whole work will roll on.

Di tapi'o? Indians, and whites too, some gladly others uneasily, are
finding out who we are--you dear friends of the churches and we here
together--a power for righteousness from and by the King.

THANKSGIVING DAY.--Rev. C. L. Hall gives us the following
interesting glimpse of Thanksgiving in a prairie mission school:

"We are to have a church dinner on Thanksgiving (Shak-s-shte-hun), for
which the church have collected produce and money, so that there will be
a large thank offering to the Lord, all paid up, not subscribed. Mrs.
Black Rabbit and Mrs. Crow and Mrs. Two Bears and Cedar Woman are on the
committee to help cook and prepare dinner. There are rabbits and geese
and beef to cook, which is cooked and which cook you can decide.

Clear moonlight on the snow, mild but no thaw, fine sledding. It was a
good night to come home from prayer meeting at Deacon Many-bears."

missionary at S'kokomish, Washington, writes:

"Last Sabbath my work was as follows, though it was a little extra:
Superintended the Sunday-school at the Agency at 9:30; 57 present.
Taught a Sunday-school class. Preached at the same place at 11, then was
on my horse in a few minutes, and at 12:05 was a mile distant and
preached to the Indians. Then rode four miles to John's Creek and
preached to a small congregation of whites in English at 3:00
P.M., eating my lunch as I rode along. Came home by six
o'clock, and at seven o'clock went in for half an hour to the Christian
Endeavor meeting."

A THANK OFFERING.--Miss Collins, of Fort Yates, N. D., in
writing of the Indian work at her mission, says:

"Last night there was a New Year's meeting, and they took up a 'Thank
Offering' because God had been so good the past year, and they handed me
ten dollars this morning for the native missionary society, and they
pledged ten more. Pretty substantial way to show gratitude to God! Oh if
our churches would come to the help of our American Missionary
Association in so liberal a way, what might we not do for Christ this

The Chinese.



This work was begun about two years ago as an experiment, the teacher,
Mrs. Martha Ellis, giving her services without expense to us for several
months, till it became apparent that the field was one we ought to
occupy. She is an earnest Christian and is putting her very life-blood
into this service for Christ and the souls he died to save. With her has
been associated from the first Mr. Joe Dun, a most faithful and
efficient helper. He was converted in our Marysville Mission, and has
been a steadfast Christian for many years. He accepts less than half pay
in these times of straitness, and tries to eke out a support for himself
and those dependent upon him by attention to business in a small and, I
fear, far from lucrative way, but gives his _heart_ to mission work. I
feel guilty every time I make a remittance to Watsonville because the
pittance we allow him is so small as compared with the work he does. But
he and the zealous teacher have other rewards far richer than coin.

I reached the Mission House at about 2:30 P.M. Mrs. Ellis's
afternoon class of children was just being dismissed. But it seems they
had heard about me, and were glad to come to order again, and get
acquainted with me and let me hear them sing. It was a sight I never
looked upon before, and did not expect to see in California till we had
come much nearer the millennium than I dare think we now are. Nine
children stood in line before me--three of them Americans, three
Chinese, and three Spanish or Mexican. The whole class numbers sixteen,
the absent ones being five Spanish children and two Jewish ones. They
sang for me, with great vigor and quite good harmony, "Jesus Loves Me,"
"Precious Jewels," and "At the Cross." Books were not needed. The words
were packed away in their memory, where they will remain to bless--as we
hope and pray--their whole lives.

After the children had gone, eleven Chinese brethren gathered about
the table to study with me the Confession of Faith and Covenant of
Bethany Church, San Francisco, with reference to being organized into
the BETHANY CHURCH OF WATSONVILLE. About three hours I spent with them
holding them to close study of that which they would profess and
promise if they were united in Church relationship. They were of
various ages and various grades of intelligence, but I felt that
Christ had refused none of them, and I must not do so. Hum Quong was
converted in Marysville five years before, but had not till now had
opportunity--since he was sufficiently confirmed in his discipleship
to do so--to offer himself for baptism. He had become well versed in
Christian truth, and was able to interpret for me, and to assist his
brethren, almost as well as Joe Dun himself. The others were, all of
them, the fruit of our Watsonville work. One had been in California 25
years, but had attended mission-school nowhere except in Watsonville.
He was a substantial looking man, a good miniature of a New England
deacon of the old school but for his complexion and attire. I was
rather pleased--having made such reflections silently--to hear him
nominated by several voices and to see him unanimously elected their
only deacon. His name is Ng Kite.

It was a scene that interested the angels, I am sure, when in our rude
little mission-house, in the presence of a goodly company both of
Chinese and Americans, those twelve disciples stood together, hand in
hand, and accepted their confession and covenant. Eleven were Chinese;
one, their teacher, was an American. Ten were baptized--the largest
number of Chinese that I have ever baptized at one time.

Some, at least, of the village pastors, and a large company of other
Christians--too large for our limited space--would have been with us but
for the fact that Union Evangelistic services were in progress and they
felt it necessary to attend and take part in them.

Is it not worth while to maintain in vigor a work like this?


Of this mission Dr. Pond writes: I give you an opportunity to share my
joy by inclosing the letter from Mrs. Hall, our teacher at Santa Cruz.
She has been for three months teaching a class of Japanese after her
teaching in the Chinese school is ended; that is after nine o'clock in
the evening--often not beginning till nearly ten. The two schools are
now happily united at our Chinese Mission House:


    "My heart is filled with gladness this New Year, and I am sure that
    the tidings I send you will make you happy also. Four Japanese and
    two Chinese have given their hearts to the Lord in the past month;
    two Japanese and two Chinese will receive baptism Sunday, and the
    other two Japanese will wait till the following Communion, as they
    wish to study the Bible more. I am satisfied to have them wait, if
    they wish, as I want them to have all doubts cleared away.

    "I will not send a report for the Japanese, as they came into the
    Chinese Mission three nights ago. I am so glad they were willing to
    attend the Chinese school, as my work at the Chinese Mission is
    growing each night, and often when I reached the Japanese school I
    was so hoarse I could hardly speak, so now, by remaining a half hour
    later, I will be able to do the same amount of work without hurrying
    so. I feel that the Lord has fully repaid me for my labor at the
    Japanese school."

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
