The appeal is made to each preacher to s
least sixty dollars worth of the publications

seems no large amount of books to be disposed
of in each charge-if only in Disciplines and
Hymn Books. But there are few preaches%
who have even so little money as this to invest
in books; and therefore, If they were so dis-
posed, many of them could not engage in the
usiness.nblished last week a plan devised by a

lay brother whose attention has been awakened

of that plan. It proposed to do all the work of

having all the contributions go directly for pur-
chasing books, etc. We only needed a system
to make the agents we had, effective. We then
asked t c"uest tem be devised ? Are there

any agencies in our church, that can be thu*
employed. Ilas its legislation ever assumed,
that there is such an agency, and enacted laws
based on the assumption ? Who can doubt it?
The Discipline says to the preachers, "Read

diligent to spread the books, and then you will
have the use of them"-a law as old as Metho-
dism
It is made the duty of a Presiding Elder, "to
promote, by all proper means the publication, at
our own press, of tracts and Sunday-school
books;" which law he can best keep, by pro
moving their circulation. It is made the duty
of the preacher, "to see that all th le with-
p epeop
in the bounds of his charge, be duly supplied
with our books and periodicals;" and he is fur-
ther incited to the work and aided in it, by its

There is no room for doubt here. The Dis.
cipline-the law of the shurch-provides the

oednet.of non -it! Ilad swe t, nethe

no expense. The work can be taken upatpleas-

mands it. There need be little regard of loss,

Thus books may be easily brought within the

able to sustain the loss or to give them away-

Can they not be put out of the way ? Let
us suggest a plan, that makes every charge a

a ha i So

the people. Let the books be bought and sold
and the money re-invested, and thusturnedover,
say, a half dozen times a year. Thus the profit
on $600, will acerne. Give the preacher half
of it, for his trouble. Give the other half and
all the original investment to the poor and to
the Sunday-sehools, in books. Let the preacher
report his transactions to the quarterly confer-
ences. The next year repeat the process; and
in a few years, thousands of dollars worth of
our books will be found in every charge
We have specified $100-as the surn raised,
only forexample's sake. Less would do to begin
with-more would do much better.
A ti thisvaria on on plan would be to return
the original investment in money or books not
yet sold to the quarterly conferences, at the end
of the year-having given away half the profit
in books, the preacher receiving the other half.
Another variation would be, to have the
preacher, if able, to add, say, an equal amount
to the contribution from the church, make his
profit on this, and give in books to the needy
the entire profit on the sum contributed and di
vide the original investment among the Sunday
schools in books. And do the same every year
As to specifications and details these may vary
with eiremnatances. The essence of the plan is
this:
1. Let the church furnish the preacher a
small capital, to be used in disseminating our
literature, by sales,
2. Let the preacher do this wisely and indus-
triously.
8. Let him so use it that the people shall at
the end of the year have the donation and the
proSta onli, in books: or only the latter while
