Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 30, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, AUGUST :50, PACK SEVEN or Churches in the District-More Become Sclf-Supporting TliQ tlnnncliil district moelltiK of tho Letliljildgo district of tho Methodist ohurch, was hold In the United church, I^othhrfdRC on Wodneadny and Thurs-I (lay ot this weok. Uev. J. -K. Hodglns was In the ; chair. Eycry mlhlHter in tho district i was present. Aa tho chairman waH i forced to leave the niooting, Rev. C. K. CragK was appointed. Ttie tilling ot vacancies in certain offices of the From the^War Zone Comes the news tliat the AutoStrop Safety Razor is helping officers to maintain the high morale .. of - tho soldiers. Nothing makes a soldier feel more like liimself than a clean,' velvety shave-this is only possible with an AutoStrop. Because of its self-stropping feature it is the only razor that is ahvays in perfect condition. Price $5.00 At Itt^iit *tor�i BTcrrivfitr* 22a. i^nataRe will deliver 'an AutaSlro/' Overseas by,/ijrst class rcsisicrcii mail.

Noth^ tng'could hotter indtcute rapid growth of the district than the rapid decroiuis of mlsalonH, Three years ago Wesley church was the only self supporting church in tho district. Tlien Barons assumed self support. Last year the United Church asked for no grant while this year four others are coming to self support, namely: Iron Springs, doaldale. Tabor and Lomond-Travcrs. Only two fielcis in the district are asking for a mission grunt, I'^romoBt (which but for crop fnlluro would have been self supporting) and lletlaw. Address on China During the ul'tornoon session the chairman introduced Uev. -Mr. Johns, M.A., professor ot mathomatlcs, in TJnIon university. West China. Ho spoko tor a short time on the educational work'fn China and his address was most convincing both as to the great need of workers and money, and also of education among the Chinese. At G.SO the delegates "Were entertained at a most delicious supper in tho United church hall.'Short nddreas-Gs were made by Mr. Hodglns and by Revs. Thoa. Powell, of Calgary, and Thos. Phillips, of Taber. A public session was hold from 8 to !t.;iO, Dr., Rivers presiding. Two speakers, Uev, I'owell, newly appointed-supt. of niis-Blons ot Southern Alberta and Mr. .Tohns. This was Mr, Powell's first appearance at tho district since 'lis \ appointment. Mr. l^owell has been in the.west for the past 18 years and a member of this conference since its formation. He is a man, kind, hympathetlc, genorons, and universally liked. He is a man of good public address aiid splendid executive ability. No appointment could have been more heartily endorsed by the minlHters, Situation In China The second address was. given by Rev. Prof. Johns. This was different from and yet more interesting than luiy heard on West China. He presented five pictures,. of the life there. Eacli picture was most vividly presented. The homo life, the method of farming most iiileijaive, the density of population (there wore sections with 1700 to 2300 per square mile), the mode of travel, finally the lack of education, especially on tlie part ot the women and girls. He said that on an average oiily'one woman out ot every thousand could read and write, and that today out ot SOO.OOO girls of school age, only 5,00Q .were attending school. At il.HO the business session was resumed at which one Rein considered was the missionary oljjoclive for this year. Some of the allotments may not seem large but when it Is remembered that Coaldalo, Taber aiid Iroh Springs are assuming from $500 to $G00 extra In ministerial support,' they are most creditable. Tiie allottments are as Wesley, ' � United church, $600; Coaldalo, $300; Taber, .$;iOO; Foremost .as last year; Retlaw, $100; Lomond-Travers, $100; Springs, $275; Barons, $500. Reports At the Thursday session reports Backed aieputalion dsor THE CANADIAN SALT CO. LIMITED on social service. He suggested thiit a greater effort he. made along spiritual lines and it was agreed that a week oi- so of meetings would bo held at each point In cbjirgo of the pastor, assisted by another. Uev. Jas. Jtaliey Iirosonled the S. S. report. On iiccoimt of some increase of work greutei- !(()-erallty was iirgeil from the S. S. towards the extension fund. This district is asked for $100. Institutes on Sunday scliool work were nr^ed dii each circuit if possible, to stimulate work In this dept. Also the C. S. K. T. and the C. (i. I. T. .-.vere most strongly urged. The chairman reminded the ministers of the subtle temptations to leave the ministry and reminding lliom of their higher and safer calling. ESSAY GO^IESI ON Mr. G. R.
