IHAVE had good opportunity this year
Sto see our church at work over the whole
State and study Ithe conditions in the var'-
ious parts of the conference. I'was present
a"' some of the Missionary Institutes, at-
tended six of 'the District Conferences, the
Commencement at Southern College, the
State League Conference and the Sunday
School Conference at Lakeland. .
The plans, enterpl-ises and scope \of the
work of'these bodies were bioad, comnpre-
hensive and declared failth in God to be with
us and help us. The.spirit of these meet-
ings was reverent, prayerful, trusting and
determined. In the Di'strict Conferences I
think I heard an hundred pastors report
their work. Many of the men reported from
hard and difficult fields; but they were
hopeful and testified that God was with
them and those who heard what they had
done and the conditions under which they
lhad worked could not doubt it.
We had sixteen members of the Board of
Trustees present at commencement. There
was a deep interest manifssted in the affairs
of the college. Plans were laid for larger
and better things for the school, and if our
people will stand by these men we shall be
able to build a splendid college.

Conferences, but for planning, pointed and

was the best I have ever attended.
The work of the Sunday School Confer-
ences has been told recently in the papers.
It was more than good and a great impetus
has been given the work over the entire

charges and worshipped with the brethren;
talked over their difficulties and achieve-
ments, listened to their plans for better
things for our Zion and it is my opinion
that not in all Methodism can 'there be found
a truer, more devoted and harder working
Sset of men. If my faith was wavering as
tO the success of the church and the !triumph
of the gospel an evening with some of these
men some of them, too, on the hardest
fields, would be made strong. No one can
come in close 'touch with these godly men
and the consecrated laymen and devout
women who are working so faithfully with
them without truly believing that the
church is moving steadily forward in her
work of salvation for the whole world.
The building projects for churches and
personages will -cone close to a quarter of
a million of dollars this year. .There is good
ground to believe that there will be more
money collected for the benevolences than
i, the history of our conference. e
The college is growing in favor with our
people over the whole State and there -is
fine promise for a good opening on Sept.
17th. Our Editor and Advocate are already
in good standing with all the people and
arc growing in the grace of usefulness.
Many gracious revivals have been held
over the State; the fires have been kept
burning and sinners have been truly saved.
Our preachers still know how and are able
to call men to repentance and lead them in-
to the kingdom of our Lord. I am confident
the increase of membership will be larger
than any previous year.
Summing up the various activities of the
church this year, I am sure the brethren
will make a good report and give good ac-
count of their stewardship at Tallahassee in
December. God bless them, every one!

We have just closed a glorious
revival meeting at Hallandale.
We were there about two weeks.
It was a revival in every sense of
the word. The Lord wonderfully
blessed us from the very first ser-
vice. We cosed out at high tide
with twenty accessions and more
to follow. Rev. S. A. Wilson did
the preaching. We now begin at
Dania. Pray for us.-H. B.
I began a meeting at Mt. Tabor
church July 25 ,and closed Sunday
night, August 3d. The Lord was
present at all of the services,
manifestly so, and many testified
to a saving faith in Jesus who,
heretofore had not known Him or
had backslidden. Rev. Jno. E.
Hortsfield, of Gairesville, was
with me, leading the singing,
preaching, exporting and praying.
Rev. Joe Tolbert of Ft., White,
another local preacher, did us
much good service, especially his
prayers at the altar. We received
three by profession. There are not
many outside the church, thanks
to my godly predecessors. I ex-
pect to begin with our district
tent the last of August at Pleas-

charge. Pray for us. To God be
all the glory.---J F. Clark.
On August 3rd, the pastor
preached on missions and repre-
sented our mission compound,
soon to be opened in Africa, by
Bishop Lambuth. He took a col-
lection and raised $50.00oo in cash
and subscriptions; $37.oo00 paid in
cash and has been sent in. This
charge will report a strong sur-
plus for missions this year.---J.
We are having a gracious re-
vival at Curlew church, near
Sutherland. Rev. R. F. Hodnett,
the pastor, has conducted the ser-
vices with one or Itwo exceptions,
since the quarterly meeting on the
26th and 27th of July. Rev. O. A.

Mrs. Gilbert Evans was with
us on Thursday afternoon and or-
ganized a Woman's Missionary

preaching has been plain and
earnest. The church has been
greatly revived. A good many
have joined the church, some have
been converted, while others that
were already members but grown
cold, have been reclaimed.
The heavy rain on Sunday

BRO. ISAAC BORING'S SON.
Since our Jacksonville edition came out
we have had the pleasure of meeting a son
of Rev. Isaac Boring, the pioneer preacher
referred to in that issue. His name is Rev.
Isaac W. Boring, and he is here in Lakeland
with his son. Bro. Boring is a local elder
and is 70 years of age. Hie and his wife
spend their time visiting their eight chil-
dren in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. He
spends his winters down pn Sanibel Island.
Bro. Boring has in his possession .his
distinguished father's ordination papers.
He was ordained a deacon by Bishop
Joshua Soule, at Augusta, Ga., Jan. 14,
1827, and elder by Bishop William Mc-
Kendree at Charleston, S. C., Feb. 1, 1829.
Bro. Boring has one sister, Mrs. T. M.
Furlow,Americus, Ga., and one brother, J.
D. Boring, Myrtle, Texas,
Bro. Boring is well preserved and while
S ht does not preach very often, a few Sun-
days ago he preached three times for Bro.
Pace, at 1Anthony.
JAPANESE BELIEVE IN THE
Dr. Lovett, editor of the Weslyan
Christian Advocate, mentions the fact
that the missionaries of Japan state it as
their belief that the solution of-the question
between that nation and this is not in the
adjustment of treaties, nor the modification
of laws, but only by the activity of the
field yonder have both remedies tried and
they are qualified to speak as to which is
Christians of America. These men on the
the more effective method of dealing with
the attitude between Japan and the United
States. The statement they make is high
testimony to the power of the gospel to
deal with the great questions of state as
well as with those of the individual in his
relation to the Master of us all. This strong
assertion in the force of Christianity should
arouse the professed followers of Jesus
Christ in the homeland to the utmost Chris-
tian activity. In our service for Christ we
touch helpfully the nations of the earth,

WHAT WE SPEND FOR MUSIC.
A writer in the New York Sun recently
compiled statistics showing the expenditure
in America for music to be nearly $6oo,ooo,-
ooo annually. Of this amount $22o,ooo,ooo000
is spent for musical education, $i70o,ooo,ooo
for musical instruments, $70,ooo,oo0 for
musical sundries, $30,ooo,ooo for military
band, $25,000ooo,00ooo for the theatre $25,ooo,ooo
for concerts, $2o,ooo,ooo for Church music,
and $8,ooo,ooo for the opera. It is interest-
ing to note how insignificant is the amount
spent for Church music in comparison with
what is spent for worldly music.
Where are you spending the summer?
With God or without Him? "Good-bye,
God; I am off on my vacation," may be an
old joke, but it is far too pertinent. The
summer conscience is an annual visitor to
the souls of many. Liberty in winter be-
comes license in summer. The temptations
of the great city are many but the tempta-
tions of the seashore and the mountain are
none the less severe. They trust them-
selves upon us on the hotel porch, on the
beach, at the card party and wheresoever
we turn. They even tempt us to stay
away from the house of God and thus to
cheat God out of the value of our witness-
ing for him. Even at that delightful time
of the year when we cater to the flesh it is
true that man can not live by bread alone;
he needs that which proceeds from the
mouth of God. ..,

The Congregational Yearbook for 1913.
issued July I, shows a total of $1,217,520

ious societies of the church during the past

CHURCH EXTENSION ITEMS.
The following items from the Church
Extension Handbook for 1913 will show
that the Board of Church Extension is do-
ing business sure enough for the Church
and for the spread of the Kingdom. Re-
ceipts on assessments for the past year
were $97,590, an increase of $3,115.19
over the receipts for 1911-12; contributed
for specials, $42,774.21; for loan funds,
$56,475.70, a total from all the Conferences
of $296,840.57. Since 1882, when the work'
of Church extension was organized in our
Church, there has been donated for
Churches and parsonages $2,610,378.93, and
leaned for Churches and parsonages, $i,-
356,062.83. The number of Churches aided
is 8,692, or more than one-half of the pres-
ent number of houses of worship owned by
our Church. In the General Minutes the
number of parsonages reported is 5,449,
and of this number 2,261 have been aided by
the Church Extension Board.
GAMBLING IS GAMBLING.
Bro. Glenn, of Alabama, speaks right out.
Hie calls things by their right name.
Speaking of fashionable gambling, he says
that gambling is gambling, just as truly in
a fine parlor in a residence or club house,
among white people who are "leaders in
society," as among a lot of ignorant negroes
concealed in a cabin or "shooting craps" by
a flickering tallow candle out in the woods.
It would require often all the proceeds of
dozens of games of "craps" or "'skin" to
equal the value of the "prize" won at
"bridge" or other such game in some man-
sion, while one game of poker would often,
in its stakes, bankrupt a thousand negro
It is an outrage on justice, in view of the
law in the case, to lay violent hands on the
ignorant and besotted crapperss" and
skinnerss" and pay no attention to the
bridgers and pokerists among "society's
petted darlings." If both put themselves in
the same stream, then haul both out with
the same seine. Never mind the flapping
around. HIaul them out.
DIED TO SAVE OTHERS.
Two men lost their lives in Georgia last
week in their effort to save a drowning girl.
The girl was saved but the two men went
down. How grateful the young lady must
1)e to those men who lost their lives in her
behalf. This should remind us of the one
cne who gave His life for us, and we should
love Him for what He did for us. "I gave,
1 gave my life for thee! What hast thou
civen for me?"
One of our subscribers in good old Ark-
ansas writes: "Paper not received last
week. Please do not overlook Arkansas."
We send another paper at once. Who ever
saw (Arkansas get left?

AFFECTS THE SALONS.
The stringent new State aw which pre-
vents the screening of saloons and imposes
various other "reforms" covering the sale of
intoxicants, which was passed at the recent
legislature does not go into effect until Sep-
tember 30,by reason of which Florida saloon-
is'ts have a few weeks of grace before the
"epidemic" strikes them Solicitor W. H.
Jackson is expected to see that the law is en-
forced, says the Tampa Times.
One feature of '!the new law is that a
saloonist is not allowed to sell-any quantity
of whiskey to any person whatsoever on
credit," which, said a citizen, "is an absolute
outrage against a fellow who is broke and
thirsty at the same time, ain't it?"' Even
John D. Rockefeller could not buy a fifteen

Reference is here made with dif-

as the writer sees i't, is not merely
as to hiw or by what body the

ownership, accentuated by ad-
mininistrative control. That .the
absolute ownership and control
of the University was vesced in

of doubt than that of McKendree,
T li- S reet, or any other Metho-
dist Church in the city of Nash-

the bishops is that of the General
Conference and of the church as

ature was carefully examined,
consists chiefly of the bequest,
Bishops McTyeire and Tig
whose industry and good ju
men!t in connecting valuable
serials is well known. With ot
matter in possession of the libr
it is doubtless the largest
most valuable collection of Met
dist literature in the church.
Recognizing the great va
that such materials would be

Biblical Department has de
mined to continue the work
collecting, to the end that
Theological Library of this ]
apartment may be a center for
dissemina'tion of information
The faculty has, therefore,
