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 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.

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. We Said to' the workers of the suite, that the Sunday school ,and B*v Y. P. U. state conventions will meet with Calvary Bap,-.?-tist Sunday sehool at Oklahoma City. The time Is^theV; same, the last days of August and the first 'days 6if;; September, embracing the first 8undtty,/:',M.^t!^.'tt8X', there. ' V.'(H�' OUR MOTTO Twenty six presidents from various districts with their delegates and seventy five superintendents, that  have never met us in a state convention; fifty presidents of local unions, that have never met the B. y. p, u. state convention, with your home workers. Brethren, hear us now, for wo are praying, plan < ning, hoping, trusting and working for one solid pull this year for a Sunday school and union crusade, a state awakening, a life line thrown out, our young men and women brought to Christ- �. PLANS- Our plan is to get these presidents, superintends!^,^.! and teachers together and reach a concrete agreement'"j5'** ipon one way to,reach our young men and wopaen and^S what to do after reaching them. Tlift boys, girk, - ' '* and women in.tho rural districts, nuist be.brought^] light that they have a soul like others, a miad-aod^ to be cultivated. ,i " THE WARGMY  v 'ii.
