Is, a u ml thy Negro, i> b.iil.hiiy another m�g-mik-em brick block, next to the convention hall on South �Jr;d St. in Muskogee.  . We were  compelled to  mulct: another  deal or shut  the office down. We had no way of getting the paper out, as  the  Western N^wsf-aper   Union   had   moved' their   presses' .from Muskogee. So w� .boUKht new parts'tor our 'big paper" pr"6*ss; 'N'ovr we are printing the Informer  on our own press. This,  also gives us �double and triple  advantages in expediting our work. Every Baptist in Oklahoma -should give tiie Informer some work, as this institution is owned and operated by the convention, brethren you mistreat yourselves and us, when you fail to iet us have some of your work. It is a case of a house being divided against itself. Send in the time and place of your next annual meetings, in order that: we may publish tiie same in the paper, and that all, �who wish, to attend your meet ings may keep posted as to dates. To the members of the stale board of education, it is about time for us to Day in onr pledge money for the president's salary. �Our part is eight dollars per month;"this we will pay: let each member eoine up with his part, -and the salary will be.' paid. If Haskell don't change his tactics, speedily, every church in this state had better call for special prayer to God, for guid-v since, lest we will drift into barbarism. The gavels 'for the many annual meetings, have been raised tfot this year. Be ye also ready. DENOMINATIONAL � FIGII I'EK Every denomination   has   it. lighters. They are men, who are {always on the war path. They se; V'erdy   criticise everything and everybody. They are put hunting the faults of men and   the religious system to which they belong They  have .been   aptly  styled '"Mole hunters." They are always "Strai ling  out gnats  an�d swallowing  camels," lurtnp and   all, Nothing ever sitits their  concep; tion of "The tit and eternal." No man ever introduced a plan  that was good enough lor Uiem to indorse.   They,     however,    never have been  known   to   introduce' anything,   anywhere  oral  any time,   I hoi" only   iiln'.My   seems lo be en ll i val ed along   I he ! I lie ol I anil li mil ng     and    ilrsl mcl ion. They are .lesinnhoiiiMs not constructionists. They would destroy Saint Peter's becail.se a window in its side did not harmonize with tin ir notion of beauty. They would set tire to their own house to warm their hands on a cold day. They rush Into print on the least occasion and lam bast, their brethren in charge of the slate work,.because, forsooth, .every phase of 'the management does not come up to their sickly notion. The world is worried cf this type of self-constituted leaders. At home, the small worn opm-mitteu to their care is "in down, and contributes noth ig to the general cause. Yet, .ey cannot catch a hint of their own insufficiency and   outworn usefulness. They are the little musi|uito men, who tease the men who are bearinir ti.e burden of the mas-' ttr's cause. They buzz, sting, bite and tantalize til! they drive the men of consecration almost to desperation. They would burn up a cornfield, to kill a lizard that ran near them while plowing. What is the reined v   for them, you say ?�'Why just  'to let them | go on in their own self-opinuated way and pay   no   attention   to them. brother pas tors;   the   minutes of vie-   stall convention  is   compiled  and  in the      hands     of    the   printer arid    have.     been     for     sonic time Tnere . is no money in the treasure to pay for them, yet the printer is at Work  on  them. 1 appeal  to every  pastor  in  the state to take an after collection in Ins church and forward   same to me lo pay  for  minutes. A   receipt will be sent to each church, who complies with this   request.

U.'s and district officers; comprising the workers of tin Sunday school and B. Y. P. U. conventions of Oklahoma; you aro aware of the coming annual meeting. A few more days and we will be greeting oacK other on the convention floor. As you know, we left Muskogee, hist year, with our1 faces turned toward Till-; sa, to meet with the First BupLUt Sunday school, hub' for some cause over which vve hava no control, we are forced to go else where. Tulsa has found that she cannot care for the convention'as she wishes to. Oklahoma City, the capital of the state, with its broad hearted Baptists, who aro ready to care for every righteous cause, said. "Oom.i all ye ends of Oklah;biiia" and hover under the wings of the Calvary Baptist church. We will care for you." We ll.i-.hed tuis in .'.-.sage over tiie state.
