Privilege. Duty performed what of privilege much not of desert but of Grace. The religious life is full of privilege such privileges As May Well fill heaven with astonishment and which certainly should fill Earth with alleluia is. At the beginning there is Pardon and afterwards if through the weakness of the flesh the soul is beguiled into sin we have an advocate with the father through whom forgiveness May to sought and found. What a privilege a soul condemned to death permitted to sue for mercy and to be forgiven o the stupidity of the soul that does not exult at the thought to escape eternal death and be restored to his favor whose favor is life what Angel Tongue can utter the greatness of a privilege like this it transcends All finite Power of thought or utterance. And yet How Little esteemed by most hew despised by Many How Little of grateful Praise does it Call Forth even from those who have been forgiven be thou humbled o my soul at such ingratitude. You my dear friends profess with me to have shared this wonderous Grace. How can we better show our gratitude than by avoiding sin in the future. Shall not the past suffice us wherein to have so Unworthily abused the Long suffer bag forbearance of our pardoning lord if indeed forgiven let us go and sin no More. So there is renewal a a created anew in Christ a corrupted nature renders existence a curse. To be under the Power of an evil heart of unbelief to be sinking lower at every step to be conscious of this and at the same time conscious of a hopeless enslavement to the evil a to be thus chained to a body of death what can be More fearful Weil May one in such an appalling state cry out a a o wretched Man that i am a but thanks be to god there is deliverance. He who forgives Renews. From this death of sin we May use to the life in go cd. Again what privilege but Here again language fails. A soul changed from the love and practice of bin to the love and practice of virtue renewed after the image of him who created it in the presence of such truths silence is More expressive than words. But what adoring gratitude and love should they awaken and have you my dear Friend been the subject of such a work has god indeed breathed a second time into yom and have you become a living soul living the True life the life of god which is eternal Kef if so then in virtue of this new life Begotten As it was of the spirit you Are a child of god and if a child then an heirs an heir of god even a joint heir with Jesus Christ to the inherit Ance. What shall we say to these things what can we say nothing. 4 be still and know i am but something of what our lips can not utter our lives May express. We can in our lives exhibit the fruits of the spirit and these As no words can do will Manifest the greatness of the work that has been wrought. We Nfay thus become witnesses for god witnesses to his saving Power living epistles known and read of ail men. In this talk we have looked into but the Vestibule of Christian privilege. And yet what have we seen a sinner escaping eternal death through the Pard Taing mercy of god and fitted for heaven through the washing of regeneration and the renewing of the holy ghost. And Here amid such an amazing display of Grace in the presence of such gracious privilege let us pause and adore while with grateful and Loving hearts we join in saying glory be to the father and to the son and to the holy ghost As it was in the beginning is now and Ever shall be world without end. Amen. Thee while Man the Earth born sings Angels shrink within their wings prostrate Seraphim above breathe unutterable love. Fain with them our souls would tie sink 8 Low and mount As High fall Over whelmed with love or soar shout or silently adore i f. social life. By May Alden Ward. E new Comer in a German town who for her neighbors to fall on her will a lonely time of it for the Laws of y there Are directly the opposite of n that respect. Instead of receiving the stranger is expected to make being invited by some German to Calv i explained to them Ouray they found theirs greatly prefers a a How do we know a they said when me lady Homes into our neighbors whether she wishes to make friends get or in what Tolaas of society she is Ove until she selects those with whom she wishes to associate and Falls non them a i went with some friends to Call upon a lady whose acquaintance we had made at the Toffee parties. Her Home was in a Bouse that had been a Convent a Century or so ago and she informed us that she lived a a two stairs High a which is their Way of designating the third Story. But the stairs were winding stairs and there were doors at Short intervals All the Way from the floor to the roof so that we found it hard to decide the exact height of two stairs and we rash half a do zen door Bells before we found the right one. Sometimes we were too High and sometimes too Low but finally when we wore just on the verge of despair we hit the right door and in answer to our disheartened inquiry As to whether Mies b. Lived Here we were invited to walk in. The servant girl inquired our names and disappeared soon returning with the information that we were to a step we were in a Large Square room with several doors and were at a loss to know in what direction to step. The girl seeing our hesitation pointed to the right door and we entered another room As Large As the first with no signs of an occupant. Here we again hesitated and the girl who was watching us again pitied our embarrassment and pointed to the door. We entered another room exactly like the first and second similarly furnished and As destitute of human beings. Seeing a comfortable sofa we were about to sit Down and wait for the lady of the House to appear but the servant girl presented herself the third time and with the air of one taking a great Liberty directed us to another doer. If this bad not proved to be the last one i think we c hould have turned Back but by this time the lady had head our Steps and the Laws of etiquette permitted her to open the door and usher us into the room. How a would have found the Way if that girl had been an Ord diary a Madchen a oblivious of cur ignorance i am unable to say for it was not a part of her duty to direct us. She Only did it through kindness of heart. But though the effect was clip slide ours must not be considered a Cool reception. The dignity of a German lady especially a provincial one will not allow her to Advance any further than that to meet a stranger. Yet after you have made the first advances and have evinced a desire for her acquaintance by calling on her the ice is completely broken. From that moment nothing can exceed her cordiality. And if you neglect to pay this attention to those with whom you Are thrown you will is treated with marked coolness for that neglect is regarded As an indication that their Friendship is not desired. One of the most common ways of entertaining friends is by a a Cofie p a tics a a Hen parties a the men irreverently style them because none of the sterner sex Are invited. My first invasion to one of these parties said simply a a will you come tomorrow afternoon to drink with to a cup of Coffee a from the invitation i expected to make an informal visit but on Rry arrival i found half dozen other ladies already assembled seated around a Little table All knitting As steadily As if they had a certain stint to finish before Sundown. Every German woman is an indefatigable Knitter. Old and Young knit incessantly and they say that every Young lady must knit a Bushel Basket full of stockings before she is a fit candidate for Matrimony. So they begin very Early. The Little girl is taught to knit before 6he is six years old and from that time Forward the knitting Needles Are her constant companions. She carries them with her to concerts lectures and visiting parties every place except into the Church itself. The Only time the hands arc Idle is during the sunday morning Church service which lasts but two hours. La the afternoon the work is taken up again and the Good Sisters of All Ages arid ranks go out to visit and gossip or to listen to the Sabbath afternoon concerts with their fingers flying As busily As Ever. But to return to cur Coffee party. When the Circle was Complete the hostess brought Coffee and cake to the Little round table where we were seated. Instead of a a a set of cups and saucers each guest was served with one of a different color and pattern and the varied styles and hues gave the table a very Bright and pleasing appearance. I could not see that the knitting or talking ceased for an instant yet the Coffee disappeared and the cups were refilled. The conversation differed Little from that which May be heard Between the game number of ladies in any part of the world except that it was liberally sprinkled with exclamations of a a Jem Christi a a Liebfr Grott Quot Etc. In an afternoons conversation a German lady will use the came of the lord a score of times and in half a dozen different ways without the slightest change of tone or countenance. And if taken by Surprise at the most trivial thing she will exclaim a a Ach thou dear god in heaven a in Mueh the same manner that one of our Young ladies would cry a Good gracious in and yet they would be horrified at the accusation of a wearing or at the suggestion that they were breaking the third commandment. It 13 simply a National habit. Each of us disposed of three or four cups of Coffee although three ups of German Toffee Are Apt to make an american of temperate habits feel a Little queer As to the head. It is a Point of Honor to make Strong Toffee and that Hoe tees is severely criticized who presents her guests with what is called a a Flower the a a Flowers is not a complimentary adjective at All. It is applied to the beverage when it fails to come no to the required stand Ard of strength Andi a do nest because they say they Ean see right through it to the Flower in the Bottom of the our. The ones were finally removed and other refreshments brought on. First pudding of some description and the Toffee Eake replaced by fruit cake. This course was swallowed As leisurely As the first and then came apples and cake of another kind and lastly nuts with still another variety of cake. After the last course was removed the lamps were lighted we gossiped a few minutes longer and then took our leave having been seated around the Little table from two of clock until seven. The visitors instead of assuring the hostess that they had enjoyed a pleasant visit received her thanks for having favored her with their presence. Freedmen�?T3 Aid anniversary. At the anniversary of the freedmen Eaid society of the methodist episcopal Church held in the metropolitan Church Washington december 4th, or. Rust the corresponding Secretary presented an abstract of the eighth annual report of the Board of managers As follows the retrospection of our past efforts in behalf of this injured people awakens mingled emotions of gratitude and sadness gratitude that we have been enabled to accomplish so much in an Enterprise so intimately connected with the safety of the nation the Elevation of Man and the Prosperity of the Church. Sadness that amid such general desolation resulting from ignorance superstition crime and slavery we have been Able to contribute so Little to the Relief and Elevation of millions in our midst suffering the accumulated wrongs of Ages. The work upon which this society hrs entered is a Gigantic one and taxes to the utmost the energies and Tho Benevolence of Tho nation. In is the Christian training of five millions or people one eighth of our entire population and through these the Elevation of hundreds of millions of incoming generations. They Are now freemen and citizens endowed with the rights and privileges of citizenship. It must not be forgotten that they were emancipated in ignorance degradation and poverty and Are what centuries of wrong and oppression have made them and it is equally Clear that the act of emancipation conferred no preparation for this new condition of life into which totally disqualified they have been thrust. President Lincoln with a da3h of his pen struck the letters from the bodies of these four millions of slaves but their minds were still Leib in the chains of ignorance and the Iron of slavery had entered into their souls. Emancipation was one of the grandest acts of the nineteenth Century and thrilled with Joy the hearts of Tho people Ard forever honoured will be the Noble men that participated in its achievement but emancipation is not Complete in itself it presupposes and demands preparation. The nation has emancipated this people but it ha3 done it at its peril unless it pushes Mere vigorously the work of Christian education. We insist upon it that the part we took in emancipation Birls us with solemn obligations to educate for education is Only the completion of emancipation and we Are urged to Complete this work by every consideration that induced us to commence it. To have emancipated and left these millions in ignorance and degradation would have been a work of doubtful philanthropy and would have partaken More of the character of crime than of Charity. To neglect the preparation of this people would be to perpetuate the wrongs inflicted , increase the peril of the nation bring disgrace upon the Church Aud provoke the just judgments of heaven. Giving Freedom and preparing its recipients for it mu3t go hand a hand else this blood Bong pc Boon is not Worth the terrible Price it Cost. Justly the nation regarded the freed men As its wards and made provision for their necessities furnishing food and clothing for their bodies teachers and books for their kinds thus adding Luster to the act of emancipation by securing the necessary qualifications to improve and enjoy it. It can not be too deeply deplored that Tho clamor against the freedmen a Bureau wa3 allowed first to cripple and then to destroy it before it had accomplished the grand work in which it was engaged but it lived Long enough in spite of the bitter warfare waged against it or any mistakes made in its management to vindicate the Wisdom and foresight of its founders and evidence the paternal regard of the National government for its wards As Well As to inaugurate a system of schools that has accomplished More than an7 other Agency in the peaceful settlement of the great questions at Issue in the South. In behalf of the methodist episcopal Church we tender grateful acknowledgements to the government for the Aid received in the erection of school buildings for the education of this emancipated people regretting that we obtained so Small a portion of the bureaus appropriations while it was in operation lamenting the winding up of its affairs and the cutting off All Aid in their behalf. The treed men a Bureau in View of the Good accomplished and its adaptation to the necessities of this people should have been continued longer. It might have been modified to meet More fully the exigencies of All classes of citizens in the South any mistakes made in the administration of its affairs might have been corrected hut in Smo form or other the government should have continued its Aid until this unfortunate people had gained strength and intelligence to Bear the burdens and discharge the duties imposed up an them by emancipation. As the government has retired from this educational work and As the impoverished condition of the South prevents any Large appropriation for duo Facion if this people is educated at All it must be done by the denominational associations of the North among which the freedmen said society of the methodist episcopal Church has taken High rank in View of the efficient services rendered and the great Good accomplished. It is fitting that the Church whose founder took so deep an interest in this race when it was in bondage now it is free Aud All barriers to its improvement Are removed should put Forth vigorous efforts to save it As it is in accordance with the geniu3 and spirit of this organization to seek among the lost the poor the ignorant and the suffering. The fact that methodism has so Large a constituency among this people increases its obligations and assures it of a Welcome As Broad and enthusiast to As its heroism and Benevolence can meet.

The influence of this society is Felt All Over the South. Fifty thousand have been taught in its Day and a larger number in its sunday schools. Hundreds of preachers now Labouring among this people and thousands of teachers j instructing the children have been taught in institutions established and sustained by this a society which has provided in the South a school property Worth More than two Hundred thousand dollars. In is estimated that forty thousand children have been taught by those trained in our schools so successfully does this work perpetuate itself. A society that has done so grand a work As this bears the Seal of divine approbation and deserves Liberal support from the Church and the government. Our Mission work in Tho South could not have been planted and can not be sustained without our schools and we must liberally sustain this educational work among the poor freedmen of the South or prove Recreant to the highest obligations of humanity and incur the displeasure of god. It is not Safe to disguise the fact that to maoists Are directing a special attention to the freedmen and in the absence of suitable efforts on the part of protestants they May yet be successful. Not until they had votes to cast did they take any interest in their welfare. The papists of the old world under the auspices of the Pope of Rome and archbishop Manning Are sending missionaries in rapid succession to labor among this people. They Are in dead Earnest in this matter and have sagacity enough to see that their Only Chance for supremacy in this country is to proselyte the freedmen. They have vast resources at their disposal and expend them freely in the accomplishment of their schemes. The freedmen Are so anxious to learn that they Iii attend Peor schools taught by papists unless protestants far a Nish Good ones. A Bat the teachings of the to maoists disqualify the freedmen from becoming Loyal Oit Isene or intelligent christians. This papal movement should be an incentive to renewed Effort and Seal from All protestants who should every where unite in the common cause of educating this people and Ihns save them from the Wiles of romanism for a whoever aids and educates hem in their ignorance and suffering will have their Hearty cooperation in the fun a. If protestants educate this race it anchors it to protestantism. If to maoists do it then set monism controls it. As in our past struggles so in this self interest to say nothing of the higher motives of patriotism philanthropy and christianity urges us to the work of educating this race is the Only Way in which our free institutions May be preserved. The coloured people May be saved to protestantism and with their of operation and the Blessing of god this nation May withstand the assaults of romanism and the attacks of any other foe at Home or abroad. It becomes us to study careful la the Providence of god in the emancipation of this race and in placing to within our reach As a grand Reserve m Tho terrible conflict that has already begun to wage in this country Between ignorance and intelligence the papal and the free schools romanism and protestantism. The importance it our educational work in the Light of this thought can not be overstated. It in tones that should startle us from our slumber and urge to More vigorous action. The welfare of the nation the Prosperity of the Church and the salvation of millions of a Long neglected race Are intimately connected with the work undertaken by this society. To neglect it is to peril interests vital to Christian civilization. It is to fling aw&7 one of the grandest opportunities Ever presented to save a race end bind it with indissoluble Bonds to Christ and the benevolent collections. By s. A. Paterck. How shall we insure Success in our benevolent collections yes that is just what every body wants to know a the Way to do it. That we need them that we must have them is Patent. The object of the incarnation the institution of the Church the restoration of a lost world to their allegiance to god would fail without them. This necessity results from a few primordial facts such As Many a free Agency through which he fell and through which he must be restored and the necessity that Man be the Active agent of the worlds restoration As he was the Active agent of its lapsed condition. This is plainly gods plan. God could convert and save every human being without Humai instrumentality Bathe is too Wise too Good to do it. God do not propose to people heaven with machines. There is a necessary relation Between character formed in the use of free Agency and future happiness. The latter pm not be gained without the former. A soul converted by Force and transplanted in Paradise without the cumulative experiences of an Active free Agency would be like a Marble Shaft in Jehovah a a Temple a a Joyless because out of sympathy with its surroundings. There could be no possible Means of Contact Between its Marble heart and the hearts of its Fellows hearts trained in probation hearts into which the principle of Active Benevolence had been injected warming changing expanding until duty trial and self sacrifice became a pleasure. This happiness thus gained on Earth becomes the Only guarantee of its Possession in heaven. Another basal fast fixes our responsibility. The whole world is by nature in utter moral and spiritual darkness without form and void with darkness on All the face of the deep. God looked and pitied and he said a a the people that sit in darkness shall see a great the moral gloom was deep Universal profound. God made a sacrifice to remove it. A who gave his Only Begotten the son made a sacrifice to remove it. A the gave hi3 life a Ransom for love prompted the sacrifice. A god so loved the world that he gave his Only Begotten son a and so it comes to pass that Tho foundations of the redemptive scheme were Laid in the Benevolence of god in Christ. The exhibition of this Benevolence comes to is through sacrifice and suffering end All along the Ages whether before the incarnation when this Light was seen through prophecy or after the incarnation when it stands before is a Acordas fast the recipients of this benevolent impulse have made their covenants with god by sacrifice. When the record was Complete god withdrew his son from Earth and sending Forth his spirit to he the revealed comforter and a notifier has now constituted his Church the sole responsible agent for the conversion of the world. This responsibility is divided and has just As Many enters As there Are members Aud god requires every member to contribute equally to this result. In reaching this conclusion we do not us it the arithmetic of science the Bible has am arithmetic of its own. The Savior used Bible arithmetic when referring to the Rich casting their gifts into the Treasury and the poor widow that gave but two mites he declared that she gave More than they All. The most slender gift out of penury by gods arithmetic will equal a five Hundred thousand Dollar donation by a Vanderbilt. Like that mysterious principle in Hydro a Atica the Preshur depends on the height of the tube without any regard to its diameter. One of the ways then to insure so loess in our benevolent collections is so to teach our people in Public and in private that they will take on the impression that it a the imperative duty of every member of gods Church to contribute equally namely according to the ability of each to every disciplinary collection and that it is fatal to their eternal salvation to neglect it. The Bible name a fair proportion of our incomes from the uses of Benevolence is robbery and the fears Are expressly excluded from the kingdom of heaven. Our position is sustained by the word of god and we fearlessly maintain it. A a will a Man Rob god yet be hive robbed me even this whole nation. Yet be say wherein have we robbed thee in tithes and in the impression of duty once fixed in the conscience of on people the scriptural proportion of one tenth of on incomes could As readily be reseed As Sny less amount. We might imitate our Wesleyan Brethren in England to advantage in the adoption of the Penny a week system. We have in round numbers a million and a half Church members in full Eon Keetion and half As Many Sabbath school scholars not members. Suppose we would Indue our people to give an average of one cent per week systematically and persistently. That would produce Twenty two thousand five Hundred dollars per week or one million one Hundred and seventy thousand dollars per year by the it Enny a week plan Aisne. That equals almost twice out whole missionary collections As at present conducted and need not interfere at All with the Mach query already at work. But we do not propose to Deal in statistics we have not the data at hand to insure correctness nor do we feel competent to suggest new plans or now modes of operating. The Good sense and executive ability of our preachers Are equal to any emergency. What we want More than any thing Elf a is to get Tho will to Ive worked into on people. This unwillingness to give is the dead Point that Mast be overcome. Till that is done no Way will succeed that once accomplished and any Way will prove a Success. Education is Tho thing but How to educate is the vital question. None but a Tiggard would question the ability of cur people. We could average five dollars each for pure benevolent purposes and not feel it. That would give us seven and a half millions of dollars a princely sum and one that would Wake the echoes of salvation in All lands. When that was Given and expended its results flowing Back upon the hearts of the donors would awake them to Juster views and increased liberality. It is an axiom that the More the Church gives to god the More she will give. This be sulfa is based partly on habit but there is added a reflex influence that warms the heart and in lines the purse strings in exact proportion. The admission of the Lay element to a fall participation in the legislative and executive departments of our Church would greatly facilitate benevolent collections. True we Are moving in that direction and when All the reasonable demand of the laity arc met in this Reform there will arise a deeper feeling of obligation on the part of the laity to respond to the Calls of Tho Church for Money to move Forward All her benevolent enterprises. One Way upon which we must rely for permanent Success �3 the education of our children in systematic giving. It is trite but True that Early impressions Are lasting. If we can put our children on a system of training that will habituate them to giving systematically for benevolent purposes t Wenty years will insure to the Church All the Means she needs to effect Kuhe worlds evangelization. A tithe of the Money now spent by our youth for useless and hurtful Sudul Gencks would secure that grand result. But the How to reach the mature membership of the Church and substitute in them habits of liberality instead of Long indulged parsimonious habits is equally imperative and far More difficult. In the Case of children we can incorporate benevolent sentiments into plastic material that will Harden into permanence. The old Man of ski Flint habits is a Burnt Brick and it is next to impossible to make new permanent impressions. Y on May put him in the Crucible of a warm gospel Sermon and melt him so far As to get a Liberal subscription occasionally but so soon As he goes Home and cools off he will wish he had not done it. The writer was educated religiously under the influence of the anti Mission baptists and knows from experience the Power of Early impressions. He remembers once a Long time ago visiting a conference in Cincinnati at which Bishop Scott presided. At the missionary meeting on Friday evening we had one of those old fashioned red hot missionary sermons that stirred things to the very Bottom and transferred four Hundred dollars from our pockets to the plates in an incredible Short space of time. To found ourselves minus a five Dollar Bill and will remember a later impression that came Over us More in Accord with our former habits. But the question recurs How shall we Mold the present generation to habits of gospel liberality we have tried to Survey the whole Field of possible influences and agencies that might be brought to Bear in the solution of this problem and we come Back to this single Point education As the first essential element in the process. Bled his newly raised religious Palace to the he is determined henceforth to observe the Ghristian Sabbath As Well a the Mohammedan Sabbath and a translated into arabic for his daily Reading the ten command Mente the lord s prayer and the Savior a a Golden Rule. To Subj in or. Stanley s programme for and civilising All in a breath a plan which we commend to those philanthropists who do not believe in sectarian missions. There is a Chance for then. Who will second Stanley in this line ? the grand Field for Christian missionaries. A but 0, that borne pious practical missionary would come Here what a Field and a Harvest Tipe for the sickle of the gospel a Tesla would give him any thing he de aired houses lands cattle Ivory Etc. He might Call a prov rate his own in one Day. It is not the Mero preacher that is wanted Here. The Bishops of All great Britain Folk died with All the classic youth of Oxford and Cambridge would effect nothing Here with the intelligent people of Uganda. It is the practical Chi Istia a Tutor who a teach people How to be Home christians cure their diseases construct dwellings understand agriculture and Ean turn his hand to any thing like a Sailor this is the Man that is wanted Here. Such a Man if he can be Lund would become the Savior of Africa. To must be tied to no Church or sect but pro fess god and his son and live a blameless Christian he inspired by literal principles Charity to All men and devout Faith in god. He must belong to no nation in particular but the entire White rce. Such a Man or men a Tesla King of Uganda Sooga Uny Oro and Kara Gwen a kingdom two Hundred and sixty Miles in length by fifty a breadth invites to Como to him. He has begged me to Tell the White men that it they Wilt oily come to him he will give them ail they want. A now where is there in ail the Pagan world a More promising Field for a Mission than Uganda colonel Linauts de Belle Fonds is my witness that i speak the truth and i know he will corroborate All i say. The colonel though a Frenchman is a calvinist and has become As ardent a Well Wisher for the wag Andaas i Aai. A a then Why further spend needless vast sums upon Black pagans of Africa who have no example of their own people becoming christians before them. I speak to the universities Mission at Zanzibar and to the free methodists at Mombasa to the leading philanthropists and the pious people of England. Here gentlemen is your Opportunity embrace it the people on the shores of Nyanza Call upon you. Obey your own generous instincts and listen to them and i assure you that in one year you will have More converts to. Christianity that la other missionaries United can Nam Naff. Tho population of me sea a kingdom is most dense. I estimate the number of his subjects at two millions. You need not fear to spend Money upon such a Mission As a Tesla is sole ruler and will pay its Cost tenfold with Ivory Coffee Otter skins of a very file Quality or cattle for the wealth of this country in All these products is immense. A a with permission i would suggest that the Mission should bring to a Tesla As presents three or four suits of military clothes decorated freely with Gold embroidery with half a dozen French Epis a Saber a Brace of pistols and suitable ammunition a Good fowling piece and Rifle of Good Quality As the King is not a barbarian a cheap dinner service of Britannia Ware an Iron Bedstead and counterpane a few pieces of option print boots Etc. For Trade it should bring Fine Blue Black and Grey Woollen cloths a Quantity of military Button Gold Brail and Cord silk Cord of different colors As Well As binding Linen and sheeting for shirts file red blankets Aad a Quantity of red cloth a few chairs and tables. The profit arising from the Sale of there things would be enormous. A a for the missions u9e it should bring with it a Supply of Hammer saws augers chisels axes hatchets adze carpenters and blacksmiths tools As the is Garda Are Apt pupils Iron drills and powder for blasting purposes trowels a couple of Good sized anvils a forge and bello�8, an assortment of nails Aad tacks a plow Spades shovels pick axes and a couple of Light buggies As specimens an such other Small things As their own common sense would suggest. Most desirable would be an assortment of Garden seed and a rain also White Lead linseed Oil brushes a few volumes of illustrated journals Guady prints a magic lantern n crets and photograph apparatus. The total Cost of the whole need not exceed e5,u90�?$25,000.�?�Stanley As a missionary. By Rev. E. Want Worth d. D.
