41 XID.-RESOLUTIONS PASSED BY THE WEST CHINA MISSION CONFERENCE. JANURY '1(esoleved.-That we express to Bishop Bashford our sincere appreciation of this, his third visit to West China; for the unfailing interest he has taken in all brandies of our work; for the sympathy he has shown with us in our difficult problems, and for the added financial responsibility he has assumed in trying to help us solve them; for the example he has set before us of whole-souled devotion to the tasks before us; and especially for the spiritual inspiration and llplift which we have received frolll his addresses and sermons. CJ(esoleved.-That we assure Dr. and ~lrs. Lewis of our great pleasure in their visit to their fortner field of labor in 'Vest China. We thank God for the manner in which He has so abundantly blessed their efforts to lead both the Chinese and foreigl1er~ into a deeper spiri tna] life, and pray that they tnay 11a\'e the joy of leading yet luany lllore souls into this better life. We are heartily glad for the transference of Dr. Lewis back into onr Conference and appreciate the constant interest he has shown throughout the sessions. We are also grateful for the able way in which he has interpreted the sermons of the Bishop to the Chinese audiences. '1(esoleved.-That we extend the greetings of our Conference to the Canadian l\iethodist l\1ission, and sincerely thank them for the most generous way in ",vhich they have accorded to the members of our mission during the past year equal privileges with those of their own in the Language School. We recognize with genuine appreciation the deep interest taken in our work and the generous contributions made toward it by the :Pirst l\iethodist Episcopal Church of Montclair, New Jersey; and in the recent further expression of this interest in providing for the outcoming of Rev. and.:nirs. James M. Yard to reinforce us at this titne of Ollr extreme need, therefore,

42 ~esolf:(jed.- That we, the luembers of the West China 1\{iSSiOll Conference express our unanimous vote and 1110St sincere and grateful thanks to the First l\1ethodist Episcopal Church of Montclair, New Jersey, for their generous share in the support of the work in Wc:st China. ~eso/f:(jed.-that we tender to ]\tirs. Ritchie our sincere thanks for the pleasure which we have all received through the generous loan of their piano. ~esolcved.-that we assure Mr. Gin of our sincere appreciation of the earnest and efficient way in which he has assisted Dr. and Mrs. Lewis in their e\'angelistic efforts at our different Mission stations. ~esolcved. -That we express to Dr. Canright our hearty thanks for his kindness in placing the hospital so largely at the disposal of the Conference. f G. ~. NEU~ANK Comm-ittee. l:\i. 1\1. CANRIGHT IVL J. CURNOW Ho VVEK G,,'E YAX DE YCIX I.-Report of Committee on the State of the Church. The use, manufacture, or sale of strong drink is contrary to the Truth. Not only should we abstain from it ourselves, but we should not offer it to our guests. If offered to us as guests, we should take opportunity to Inake plain our reasons for abstinence. If a preacher llses strong drink he should be dealt with according to the Discipline. Tobacco, especially in the form of cigarettes, is an injury to health. We should take care of the bodies which God has given us. A preacher should be an example to others, and if he does not break off smoking, he should surrender his parchments. vve recommend, that in pastor's reports to Conference there should be (x) a show of the general condition of his circuit or station (2) a statement of how he has performed his work (3) a report of the amounts raised for benevolences (4) a report of all buying, renting and.building during the year. Unless there are matters of special importance, each report should be limited to three hundred characters.

43 SPENCER LKWIS, J. O. CURNOW, YANG DE YUIN, LI TIEN YUEN, Fu DE GEN. 2.-Report of Educational Committee. In all purchasing and renting of property, the deeds and rental papers should be in the name of the M. E. Church, and 110t in the "name of any individual, merely indicating who transacted the business. The Scriptures enjoin the keeping of the Sabbath ltoly, with rewards for keeping and punishments for violation. Therefore we preachers ought ourselves to keep the Sabbath and set an example to others. On the previous day we should attend to all buying and other business that on Sun 'day we devote ourselves solely to the Lord's work; otherwise we are not fit to be preachers. If, after repeated warnings, tnembers of the church do not keep the Sabbath they should.be disciplined. Candidates for probation should express their willingness to keep the Sabbath before being received. 'The above restrictions are 110t intended to apply to those who are not their own tnasters. The work of preaching is 110t to be compared to other work. To have several vocations is li~e a servant trying to serve two masters,.and is sotnething which a preacher should not be guilty of. A preacher should not offer himself for the preaching of the gospel and at the same time secretly join with others in business. Furthermore, a preacher should not start a hwei in his circuit, since, being liable to removal, troll bie is likely to be caused among the tnembership and hindrance to his work. If a probationer in conference secretly fonns a hwei, he should withdraw, and if a lllember of conference does so, he should surrender his parchnlents. RESOLVED:- First,-That we again endorse the Educational Policy adopted by the Annual Meeting of January, 1:909, with the following addition, to Section I, namely that we seek to establish Model Kindergarten Schools wherever possible.

44 SecOIzd,-That we recommend that the children of full members of Conference be allowed a reduction of fifty percent frotn board and tuition fees when attending any of our Mission schools. Third,-That we believe the interests of the Mission require that a girls' boarding middle school should be located at or near Chungking, and that we unite in urging the W. F. M. S. Board to press this project as soon as possible. Fourth,-That we believe the time h:ls come when the. W F. M. S. should undertake Educational 'Vork of Inter-' mediate grade for girls at Suiling. Fijth,-That this Conference looks with favor upon union in ed ucation wherever possible and that to this end we appoint a comtnittee of two to meet with similar conlmittees from the other Missions in Chungking to inquire into the advisability for union. Szxth,-That we approve of the plan of having a general educational secretary and that to this end we request the Finance Committee of the parent board and W. F. M:. S. to ask their boards if they will guarantee our mission's share of such a secretary's support. JOHN 'V. YOST, Secreta 1 J'. 3-Report of Committee on Thibetan Work. I. We favor sending two or three men as tnissionaries into Thibet but that they do not locate at Batang and do nat stay there more than a month after arriving there. 2. We suggest that a foreigner be the head of the COIUmittee 0:1 Thibetan work, be responsible for the work, and have a Chinese helper. 3. In each District there should be a Secretary who should try to get subscriptions for this work, especially during the Third Quarter. 4. A letter should be written each quarter from our missionaries in Thibet to the head of'the Thibetan Committee. JOSEPH BEECH, Clza z'rma 11.

47 XV.-CHENGTU REPORTS. Report of Joseph Beech. Anyone of the three appointll1ents given Ine at the last Conference was of sufficient importance and urgency to claim my full services but I have been compelled to serve each as ;the occasion pennitted and am keenly con:;cious that I have 110t fulfil1ed the demands of any..\t the College the teaching has fallen entirely to Bros. Yost and \Villiams while the discipline and direction of the practical work of the College has fallen entirely to Bro. Yost, who has discharged these duties in a Inost acceptable manner. My own services for the College have been largely in an.advisory capacity, in the attendance upon committees, in planning for the future building and endeavoring to raise the -funds to erect the same, and to secure scholarship endow. me~ts. These with the time given to conducting the Chicago Oriental Investigation Committee to Chengtu and the further.obligations arising out of this visit, the College has claimed' about one third of Iny time and strength. In brief the results of the year's work and program in -connection with the College are as follows: I. A year of union work between three missions has been carried 011 successfully, and union has been demonstrat -ed as practical. 2. The various missions each own their own section of land and have their plans for building ready and in hands of the Joint Comlnision, to whom they were sent to be unified in.design. Until such buildings are erected, the students of the various missions will be lodged in Chinese buildings and the teaching done in temporary structures which have been erect ~d, or are in process of erection, for this purpose. Plans for our own dormitory and chapel building to cost $1500 gold have been completed, accf.pted by the mission and are at pre.sent in the hands of the Comlnission. A portion of one of the

48 residences has been begun and will be occupied as a residence until such time as the Inaill residence can be erected. 3. The receipts for property, building, endowment and support are as follows: Burrowes gift, $5000 Gold. (this gift completes the pledge of Bishop Bashford to secure $5000,) l\lex $I9JI. 94 from l\{ont Clair M.E. Church and Cobleskill 1\1. E. Church; these gifts are for building accounts. For the endowll1ent and support account, $ Mexican. The work in the Biblical Training School, in the teaching of theology, the prophets, and General Epistles and such oversight of the school as I could give bas also consumed about one-third of my time. Mr. Ho and Mr. Hwang have assisted iii. the teaching, and very much of the responsibility for the conduct of the school has been with Mr. Ho, who has discharged his duty most acceptably to all concerned. A class of six will be graduated at this Annual Conference tinle, five of whom go to our Mission and one to the London Mission. Twenty-three students have been enrolled during the year, two of whom 1lave been expelled. The gift of $5000 gold dollars from Col. Frank IvI. Joyce to erect a Memorial Training School, in Dlemory of his father who was the first Bishop of our church to visit West China, assures a home for the Training Schoo1. During the present year we have been crowded in narrow and unhealthy quarters and we are profoundly thankful that Bishop Joyce's love for West China will soon enable us to terminate this condition of things. The District work has suffered 1110st from lack of attention. I have only been able to hold three sessions of the Quarterly Conferences, and to do this it was necessary for me to make one trip during the \'acation month of the hot summer. On the District there are twenty-sevell chapels and churches, and exclusive of the schools in the city of Chengtu, eleven day schools and one semi-day and boarding school. There are 369 mejnbers and 339 probationers 011 the District. There have been 35 adult baptisms, but because of loss through death and six expelled the total gain in members is only twenty.

Inc! uded in these amounts are $1358 for building of churches. At the beginning of the year, there were obligations which calue to me with the three appoinbnents which I received, and exclusive of the meagre sum appropriated by the :\Iissionary Society, a sum of not less than $6500 Mexican. Everyone of these obligations has been covereq and in addition the above recorded gifts for property and churches. "Tis with profound gratitude to God and increased faith in His all-seeing Providence that the year's work closes, and although the obligations of the coming year are as heavy as those of the past, I feel assured that it is He who bears them and that they will all be met. Report of Union HiR'h School, Chengtu. JOHN W. YOST. The work of the past year was begu n by the moving of our Chengtu College from the Wen l\hao Gai to the new Union University site outside of the South Gate of the city of Chengtu. During the Chinese New Year holidays, a temporary dormitory for onr own students, and a telnporary residence for a foreigner were erected on the M.E.M. section of the University site. These tog-ether with our share of a temporary union recitation building cost us about $750 gold. All physical and chemical apparatus and other school appliances as well as our teaching staff were transferred from our former school' and placed at the. disposal of the Union School. The Canadian l\lethodist and English Friends missions both did exactly the same with their Chengtll schools, school appliances and teaching staff. The result has been that while each of the three schoo1s has retained its identity by living apart in separate dormitories and being under the direct control of its own principal, all have derived great benefit from more complete equipment, and larger and more efficient teaching st~ff than anyone school possessed formerly.

50 At the beginning of the Union enterprise we all felt fearful of resujts that might come in case of unfriendly competitions between the schools, or diverse opinions among those in charge but to the extreme satisfaction of everyone, there has been perfect harmony among both' students and teachers of all schools and while there have been necessarily differences of opinion, these differences have been adjustid amicably and I think without any doubt that all the representatives -of the three missions who united are closer and wanner friends and fellow workers than they were a year ago. The oldest missionary engaged in this work has said repeatedly that the past year has been the happiest of all his twenty years' experience in China, and I believe that without exception all of us felt that the Spirit of God has led us to undertake this union and also graciously helped us in all O~1! discussions and plans. One characteristic of our committee meetings for the year which seems to Ine to be worth men tioning here has been that when anyone or two members seriously objected to some method of procedure which a Inajority seemed ready to adopt, the majority when possible would frequently rule that the matter be delayed for a time till further light luight be had. Sometimes it happened that by the next Ineeting we were able to agree unanimously, possibly with the one objecting member or with the majority. Along with the immense gaiu in the efficiency of work done there has also been a saving of funds as a result of th e Union movement. The average current expense of our students this year has been about ten percellt less than last year. The evangelistic side of the work has been cared for 1110stly in the separate donl1itories, only one purely religious service being held weekly for the three united schools.,\ye have regular morning prayers in our own donllitory and also Wednesday and Sunday evening' prayer meetings weekly. For a month previous to the coming of Dr. Lew!s and his helper special voluntary prayer Ineetings were held praying for a special outpouring of the Uoly Spirit during the revival mcietillgs; for ten days previous to the revival daily vesper prayer meetings were held with the same object in view.

51 ""re can 110t but thank and praise our Heavenly Fatherfor the rich bless,ing that he has bestowed npon us as the year's. work was closing. Report of Chengtu Senior and Junior Primary Schools. ERICK WILLIAlIS. The school work began Feb. 15th, and was u~der thecare of ~Ir. and :\lrs. Yost until my arrival on Mar. 30th. \Ve have two teachers employed, one of w holn has been for a number of years closely associated with foreigners, for this. reason he is a luuch better teacher and helper. The attendance has not been large. During the second term there were 13 enrolled in the Senior and 15 in the Junior Primary. There have been 9 boarders, some of whonl we support entirely. The students ages range from 6 to 18 years. At the beginning of the second ternl 5 of the more advanced_ boys were transferred to the Middle School. This shows the yalue of having a boarding school even at a considerableexpense. During the year 3 have united with the church. This is another evidence of the value of constant, l1urelnitting instruction. The total receipts from tuition were $ Other sources $ Expenses $ The greate~t need at present is a more suitable location for the schools. Situated just at the entrance of the compound it is a constant source of annoyance- to those passing in and out. We hope this deficiency may be remedied in the near future. Report of Chengtu Medical Work. H. L. CANRIGHT. Another year has come and gone and like all the others, has brought its joys and sorrows; its happiness and disappointments. Twenty years ago I was anxious because I might be obliged to come to China. Now I am anxious.

52 47 - because I lleed to leave it for a time. Humanity is somethil:1g like a tree-it usually sends its roots down deep whereever they get a chance to start. Our roots have already grown deep into the soil about us l1ere. Our hearts will always be here. As the roots have grown deeper so the work has broadened. As I look over the records of the past year I am reminded that during all that time ll1y heart has scarcely been free from anxiety for SOlne serious case. Although this has been a burden it has also been a lasting sonrce of pleasure. ~fore often than usual I have felt how utterly dependent the natives about us have become on western medicine. DAVIS-ANDERSON DISPENSARY :-Since our last report we have seen patients 264 days. During those days 5,808 people have been carefully registered and attended in the dispensary. This is the largest llulnber by several hundred that we have ever treated. There were 17,306 refurn dsits, Inakil1g an average of about 90 people who have had medical attendance every day throughout the year. These patients have been drawn frolll all parts of this great city with its million inhabitants. All the surrounding country with its fifty nearby cities and thousands of villages ha \'e also sent many of their sick to be cured. Now when an accident occurs the foreign doctor is called in at first and many of these sufferers cured; while formerly the foreigner was sought only as a last resort. Each of these patients has heard the Gospel preached ill the waiting room. When they were called in one by one, I have personally treated them and given each a Bible portion and a tract. This has been made possible by the generosity of the Bible Societies and our \Vest China Religious Tract Society. HosprrAL :-Our new building which was finished last year has housed its first 150 patients this year. From lack of funds to supply proper equipment in the way of clothing", bedding~ lights, and furnishings we have been li.nable to take as many patients as we ought into the hospital. About 100 operations have been performed under an anaesthetic. It has been a source of great satisfaction to see with what rapidity the patients recover under clean, sanitary conditions. 1\11".

53 Ho has been faithful in the work of bedside evangelization. Sixty two pieces?f furniture have been nlade, snch as tables, cupboards, stretcher, etc. OTHER WORK :-Each day nlorning prayers have been (/ conducted with the servants and patients. Most of the time I have done this myself, but when I have. been absent the hospital evangelist has taken charge. My first assistant, Mr. Tan Hsieh Wll, helped during Mr. Ho's illness. DU'ring the last two months I have felt it my duty to assist in getting the roof on the splendid new W F. M. S. School building across the street. The building is now enclosed. By reading all I could in August and improving spare moments during the rest of the year, even while going in lny sedan chair to visit patients, I have been able to complete the studies of the second year in the Conference course. I have also taken an active interest in all the plans for the advancement of our Union University. "This Union work, together 'with various other committees of onr complicated community delnands one, and soll1etimes two or three Ineetings a week. '"fhese consume considerable time, but much valuable work is accomplished. ::\Iy church work has been, as usual for the last decade, Superintendent of the Sunday school. N ow I would like to call attention to sonle of the financial facts connected with this year's medical work. By a little calculation I find that my work has taken in here on the field $ This is considerably lnore than it costs to keep the physician here. Aside from this, if we had our plant complete and free from debt the work wonld easily be 1110re than self-supporting. Then we would be able to take in many lnore charity patients and enlarge our llsefulness. As it is now, if a patient can not pay a little, at least, it is very difficult to take him in. Besides this, we have.had $662. I4 in special gifts from the holne-iand.-one frotn Bro.

56 Report of Girls' Da V Schools, Woman's School, and City Evangelistic Work, Chengtu. IvIARY A. SIMESTER. DA Y SCHOOLS: Last year our Chengtu School h~d an enrollment of seventy-fonr and has not numbered less than fifty during the year. To secnre good attendance small prizes have been offered from time to time with the result that some monlhs' attendance, including the Sunday school and church services, has been -nearly perfect. Pupils are seldolll absent save for snch reasons as illness, deaths, or wed. dings in the family. The luajority come from heathen homes in which there is no incentive to regularity. One constant effort is to cultivate habits of cleanliness and order, and here the older pupils are a good example to the smaller ones. In l\iarch, property was leased outside the South gate near our street chapel, and a school for girls opened. The first month only three little ones came, but now we nulllber 4 I and 1\1r5. \Vang conducts a Sunday school for them. It is a very poor neighborhood where ltiothers had to be persuaded to send their girls to school. At Kienchow 1\1r5. Fung has 20 girls, three of whom are well advanced in their studjes. U llfortunately, there is no room that can be given to our 'work and the school is conducted in the Woman's side of the church. Here is a splendid opportunity to build up a good work among the girls and women. 'VOMAN'S SCHOOL: During the year we have had from 8 to 12 students, six of WhOlll are Christians. Three have been taken into the church on probation, two into fulllnembership and one, Mrs. Wang, has been given a Bible woman's license. During the spring tenn Mrs. Canright lightened our work by teaching a class in Old Testalllent History. EVANGELISTIC: Perhaps some of the best evangelistic work was done at the Chengtu Fair where in connection with the W. M. S. of the Canadian IV[ission, a tent was fitted up for the women, and Illeetings were conducted daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Here for three weeks our native Christian women worked hard giving out tracts and patterns of shoes

57 for unbound feet and telling the Gospel story to hundreds of women. House to house visitation has been done during the year and classes for' women have been held in the Church twice a week" Some itinerating has been done by our Bible women but not much can be accoluplished in that line until we have a missionary to work among the women 011 the Chengtu district. After two months of i1111e~s I am rejoicing in renewed health and anticipating another year of service. Chengtu Girls' Boarding School. -VVINIFRED L. STOUT. It is with deep gratitude to G()d that I review the work of lq09. God has been very near. Our total enrollment for the year has been 65. Our present number is 64. Our school girls are supported by scholarships, and these largely from home. The girls' ages range from 5 to 20 and our work is in the three departtnents outlined by the 'Vest China Educational Union. Our work in I\Iiddle School is not complete as yet, but we have the following subjects taught: geography, Bible, arithmetic, English, algebra, and geometry. The West China Union with its yearly examinations is doing a great deal to raise the standard of work. This year we have written 267 papers in ten different subjects. There were only nine failures to write papers sufficiently good to pass in to the appointed exalniners. Year by year we are able to see a marked improvement both in the standings and in the number that pass. Our teaching force besides myself, consists of six Chinese, and two pupil teachers. Mr. Gwei has charge of the large room, and teaches four classes in the Chinese classics. He also spends a half hour in the primary room in teaching Chinese characters.!vcr. Dsu, from our own Inisson schools, has been with us now three years. He has 7 classes in mathelnatics and two in higher geography. Mr. Pen bas 3 classes in the Chinese National Reader, and a second >~Ir. Pen has two classes in Chinese History and one in the Natural Science Reader. Mrs. Wang

58 has three classes in the Bible. Miss Wang has two dasses 111 the Natural Science Primer and charge of the first primary room where we have 20 little people who cannot write in the examinations. I have two classes in the Bible, two in drawing, and one ill English. The plan of a Chinese matron lias not been ent,irely successful. Some of the responsibility, however, I have given to the gil Is and they bear it well. l\ionitors ring the retiring bells, gather up the lights, weigh the rice, look after the vegetables, cut the clothing with the tailor, and also the material for shoes, look after the sleeping rooms, and help in taking accoun ts. Each large girl is also responsible for ~me of the little ones, making her shoes and stockings, combing her hair, and looking after her clothing. This gives them training in holne making. Although constant supervision is necessary, I have been much pleased with this plan. We are very grateful to Miss Collier for staying with the girls this summer while she continued work on the school building. Mrs. Beech has had a Sunday afternoon class with the girls all the year, and trained the pupils for the Christmas program, both of which we greatly appreciate. We have kept relnarkably well this year. Thanks to Dr. Canright here as well as for his excellent work on the building committee. We are looking forward with hope to the coming of Miss Golisch to share the responsibilities of the new year and the girls are as pleased as I am. We greatly appreciate her musical training and experience in primary work. The nlost blessed part of the year's work had come in the last few weeks, in the revival which has swept our school and church. During these days, as I have sat listening to these earnest confessions of wrong, my heart has been :filled with regret that I have not done God's work better, but the joy in seeing them come 011 t clear and bright has been full compensation for the work. I did not know before that my joy was to be as great as the work had been l1eavy. One evening during the meetings, when the feeling was 1110st intense among the girls, I stated that 011 the next day, we would not have the examination in English. One of the little tots with her eyes so bright looked up and said, "Tomorrow we do 110t want the examination in English, we want the Holy Spirit."

59 Yes, and He did come and we shall never go back to work the same. As I have watched these dear faces, touched with the holy light, I have felt unworthy of the love He has shown me. Report of Building Girli School. CLARA COLLIER. I think most of you have looked over the school bu ilding and seen the result of my efforts. We believe that the most difficult part of the work is accoln plished. To bring the building to its present condition has required constant, steady, hard labor. It isn't an easy task. While at holne, I was telling sonle of our ladies about our work here, and one of tl1em exclaimed, "How romantic!" For a woman to superintend a gang of ignorant, unscrupulous men in the erection of a building, doesn't accord with one's preconceived idea of mission work. We do not wish to tell, even if we could, of all the trials and difficulties lllet with. Rather would we remember the marked answers to prayer and help over hard places. Behind all has stood an interceding Providence. 'fo say that we thank Dr. Canright ror his advice and assistance, but feebly expresses our gratitude. Our Secretaries should certainly "Kowtow" (make a low bow) to him when he goes home. 'Ve shall push the inside work as fast as possible, as the building is sadly needed. 1'he quarters now occupied by the school are far too slna11 for even the present 11lll11ber of pupils. As our Woman's Board has no home for the workers in Chengtn, we are looking forward to the tilne when some of them can have rooms in the school building. We are often tried with the slow process of the work, but are comforted with the thought that we are co-laborers with God. "He is wonderful in counsel and excellent in working." Report of Elrick Williams. On arrival in Chengtll March 30th I took cbal-ge of the Senior and Junior Primary School in the City. Within a short time I also took one class in English in the Middle School outside the' city and three afternoons each week prepared the lecture experiments for the two Chell1istry

60 classes. In order to do this I took my day nlealoutside the city. TIle second term I have assisted l\ir. Davidson with the chemistry classes and had charge of the I aboratory class 011 Friday afternoons. The experience has been of great value to me in preparation for the work which Mr. Davidson leaves. In addition to the work mentioned above I have spent a great deal of time studying Chinese (chemistry). Report of Margaret M. Canrlght. Hospital and Dispensary Evangelistic Work: The number of women in-patients in our hospital this year has been very small-a total of only six, therefore the report of this part of the work will also, of necessity, be small. A General Hospital is a new thing to the women here, and they are 110t yet convinced that it is quite proper to come into the same building where men are also being treated; but those who have had the courage to come, and have gone home cured, will be able to tell others that the "customs" in this hospital are all that could be desired, and so this prejudice will gradually be broken down. Dispensary: A total of one thousand women have come to the dispensary for treattneut this year, and probably all have heard something of the Gospel. Three of our Christian women have taken turns talking to these women patients in the waiting room. All of them have also received some Gospelluessage in print to take home with them along with their bottles of medicine. Classes: I have held the usual number of classes for women during the year. One on Sunday afternoon, one on Wednesday, and a class in S. S. During the first half of the year I conducted a daily Bible class in :Miss Simester's Woman's School. There ar~ ten regular attendants in the weekly classes, and a few others who come only occasionally. Of this number eight recently made confession of Sill in the revival meetings, and some of them, I am collvinced, have truly received the Holy Spirit in their hearts. This is an answer to prayer and gives us deep joy.

61 In company with ~rs. Wang, one of our Bible women, I have made several visits to the school outside the South gate where the mothers of the school children are 'weekly invited to meet us and listen to tht! Gospel message. When I could not go, Mrs. Wang,went in company with one of the other Christian women, so the visits have been made regularly once a week. Some have shown a deep interest ill onr message, but many seem still suspicious of our moti ves. Patience, Perseverance, and Prayer, will win them yet. Mrs. Wang has been a most faithful helper. My duties as editor of the "Messenger" while they have not taken a great amount of Iny time, yet have required considerable thought. The primary object of this paper is to keep our work and its needs, its trials and trinnlphs, before our friends in the home church; but my experience has been that our missionaries are so busy doing the work that they do not take time to sit down and write about it, and it is onl y by dint of much persuasion and tireless importunity that the editor can obtain the -necessary" copy" each quarter. We can not say positively that the paper accomplishes its intend. ed 1nissio11, but we have received many assurances from friends at home that it is read with pleasure and profit, and that it has done good service at many Inissionary meetings 'in giving enlightenment and encouragement.

62 CHUNGKING REPORTS. Report of Chungking and Hochow Districts. JACOB F. PEAT, Dt'st. Supt. In reviewing the work of the Chungking District for the last six years and that of the Hochow district for the last two years, we fully appreciate that the Lord has been with ns indeed. In spite of official opposition, apparent and concealed, general snspicion, and sinners' reluctance to flee from the wrath to come, substantial progress has been made. One Inaterial advancement has been the number of pieces of property secured either froln special gifts or from local resources and churches built, or places repaired and nlade ready for religious services. The following list comprises churches built: Kiangpeh, Yungclnvan, Pishan, Lnngwangdung, Wangpin, and Gulupin. The Laisu church is now in process of erection and a site has been secured at Chealungtsang where a chapel will soon be built. Material changes and improvell1ents have been made in the following places: Linshui, Dashichiao, Funghotsang, Shinlungtsang, Laifungi, Pengiatsang, Fushintsang, and Shintsang. We cannot but believe that more efficiently housing our congre'gations will tend to ll10re permanency in their mem. bership. It remains to be said that without the full cooperation of both tnissionaries and Chinese preachers and luem bers as well as friends in the home land, very little of this work could have been done. At Hochow a fine new church is nearing colllpletioll. Rev. J. O. Curnow has had general oversight of the building and, together with the very able assistance given by Fung Si Jin, Bro. Curnow is giving us a church building second to none in the mission. A resident lnissionary here will greatly help us to manage the work i~ this part of our field. Bro. Torrey is now building a house in which he hopes to soon be, living. This part of our territory offers large opportunities to Christian people to preach the Gospel, and we should arise and tl10ve forward with the favorable tide. Had we eight or ten weli-~quipped luissionaries with their wives to be placed at collyeniel1t centers to carryon the

63 e\ allgelistic and educational work we might hope, by God's help, to impress Christianity on tlle two million people within the bounds of these districts. But being undennanned as we are we marvel that we have been able to hold on, as it were, and see done as much as has been done. One distinctive feature of the last year has been the impetus given to the education of women and girls. Notwithstanding our poor equipment we have been able to do something in this line and most of our girls' schools are crowded to overflowing. One of our teachers-a preacher's wife finds herself in an awkward position on account of her own limited education. The girls can move forward in their studies faster than she can. At Kiangpeh our girls are crowded beyond all reason. Some of the girls were found one day standing.out in the church porch with book in hand studying their lessons. These had been literally crowded out of the school room. During December we held our Annual District Conference and Convention at Hochow. There were 197 delegates present and for nine days searching preaching was conducted by the Rev. Spencer Lewis, and manifest outpouring of the Holy Spirit was witnessed. Confession was the outstanding characteristic of the meeting and an impetus was given for further heart searching. Already plans are being made by native preachers for revivals on their own charges after conference. We beseech the prayers of Christian people for a greater outpouring during the year. We would gladly see Inore efficient preachers, school teachers, Sunday-school superintendents and teachers and class-leaders, and a more consecrated membership, but when we pause to conlpare their opportunities and advancement with onrs we thank God and take courage. Report of Chungking High School. \VALTER M. CRAWFORD, Total Enrollment, 68; Average attendance 58; Students supporting themselves entirely 22; Supported in part 21; Supported by friends ill U.S. or in China 12; Supported wholly by the Mission 13. All of the students attend daily because they all board at the school. 'I'he daily program begins at 6 a.111. and every

64 hour is provided for except 3~ in which the boys may do as they wish. All students are required to follow the same routine. The hoys range froln I2 to 23 years of age, the average being about I7 years. There are very few whonl we consider poor investments because funds are too short to care for worthless students. Sons of rich Inell come but they do not usually stay to finish the course because we hold a high moral standard and they cannot usually live up to it. The Sunday and midweek services as well as daily chapel services are com pulsory. 1\10st of the boys are from Christian homes, the sons of Christians and are taken froln the best in the District schools, so we get a picked lot and we are glad as we see them develop along Spirituallines for China needs stl1den ts and men of this class to keep her balanced. The expenses have been met this year en~ire1y from tuitions and special gifts froln friends. The Missionary Society could not appropriate anything for us because the people at home had failed to come up to the contributions which the work demanded. We feel sure that the friends will again continue their support and that the coming year will be filled with new life. The teachers took 48 of the boys on a two-days trip by water and land to Hochow to the lucetings Dr. and Mrs. Lewis were holding there, and the Holy Spirit came to them in a way which they had not thought possible. Confessions of sin were followed by blessings of the Spirit, and we are thanking God for this Pentecostal outpouring. N REDS :-Special gifts for snpport of students at $25 a year. New High School Chapel and Building for study. More apparatus for chemiiitry, physics and library. Prayer~, ltiore than ever. for this school. Report of Chungking Boys' Day School. lyirs. KATHERINE '~~INCHER TORREY. The Chungking Boys' Day school opened with an enrollment of five boys and for a week it was doubtful whether or not to keep the school opell. One by one the boys came

65 -60- until 30 were enrolled. The work was interesting and went successfully on. During the first half of the year I was able to teach music and drawing and to visit the school frequently. Tests in different branches were frequently given and the boys have done good work. Through gifts from friends in America. and the missionarits on the field the expenses have been tnet. There is just one dollar in the treasury. Owing to a shortage of funds 110 repairing has been done and no school supplies have been bought. Even boys' day schools need appropriations if the work is to be successfully carried on.. The most enjoyable day of the year was Christtnas when the boys came to our home for dinner. After that we went upstairs where a Christmas tree was lighted for their entertainment. After receiving their gifts and candies and singing " Jesus Loves r..fe," they went away happy. By teaching thenl in Sunday-school and by having them in our home we have tried to win the friendship of the boys and to lead them to higher things. lvly prayer is that some of these boys may grow to be useful men in our mission. Report of Girls' Day Schools, Women's Schoof, Women's Work, Chungking. ANNIl<~ M. WELLS. Because of the lack of workers this year I was appointed to the Chungking and Kiangpeh Girls' Day schools, Women's School and City Evangelistic work. In our Chungking s('hoo1 the girls have given their hearts to Christ and their changed lives have been an example and blessing in the school. Three have been received into the church. The education of onr girls in Christian schools is greatly blessed of our Heavenly Father in bringing the Gospel to those who now sit in darkness aild in the shadow of death. Everywhere they are asking us to open these schools. A school has been opened at Kiangpeh, a city just across the river and at one time very anti-foreign, with a good enrollment. Mrs. Dsao has done well in mothering the girls and

66 ~ 61 - acting as truant officer, for China does not yet realize the importance of girls attending school regularly. The first part of the year we visited this school twice a week. The latter half of the year, Miss Lindblad has kindly taken the women's classes and I have only spent one day a week there, examining the girls and visiting in the holnes. We have had five other schools in the district, some entirely and some partially supported by us, where boys and girls have studied together. We expect to open several others during the coming year. The "Voman's School has met four mornings in the week. 1\lost of these women are engaged in doing drawn-work. Their studies have consisted of a book for begiuners containing Bible verses, short prayers, etc., the catechism, the Bible; Old Testament History; hygiene; and geography Have personally taught four classes and heard the women repeat their books which they memorized. Three WOlnell have been received into the church and others who were members have had their faith strengthened. The enrollment has been about twenty-four. One day while 111y heart was sad becanse we had no foreign woman to do district evangelistic work and feeling that work which had been done was not growing as it should, the Lord showed me I could invite some women in for a month of study, and they could return to their homes and be a blessing to others. Even this is a hardship to lnan}". The 1110st faithful of my day school women were also invited, twenty in all. We began with early nl0rning prayers which was the best part of the day and an inspiration to all. Onr hearts rejoiced as we heard some leading in prayer for the first time. The prayer lneeting was followed by a class in Isaiah taught by Mr. Tang, our preacher, Mrs. Peat also taught a class daily and was an inspiration to us thru her prayers and sympathy. V le also hold classes in Old Testament History, geography and hygiene. Once a week some lllissionary from the other tnissions working in the city came over and conducted a special service which was deeply appreciated. The work which has been so itnperfectly done, we commit to our heavenly Father and expect more perfect guidance for the comi ng year. We rejoice that. we have the great privilege of being in China at this time of her awakening.

67 G2 - Report of Cbungking Medical Work for Men. C. W. FREEMAN, M.D. The report of the l\iedical work of the Chungking :Men's hospital varies little from that of During the last week of the year onr hearts were gladdened by the return from furlough of Dr. and l\frs. l\fccartney who brought with thelll two new workers. 'l'he efforts of Dr. l\fccartney to find support for a phanllacist were successful and for this position we are pleased to welcolne 1\Ir. E. N. Menser. 1\lr. IVleuser comes to the work with a splendid training in business. He has also had excellent training for evangelistic work. ~rr. Percy C. Knapp COlnes to us especially for work in the hospital. l\ir. Knapp is a graduate of the Nurses' Training School of Battle Creek Sanatoriu111 and has had first class training under one of the best surgeons of the eastern states. He is a student volunteer and will do good evangelistic work. \Ve do thank God for these two new Inen for ottr mission. We have had an increase in the number of in-patients and a decided increase in the number of cans at the out-station department. These latter increase each year. This year the increase is about 12 r;;". This shows an increasing desire on the part of the eh inese for foreign doctors. In this same part of the city, besides the other two Mission hospi tal clinics there is a free clinic under Dr. Assmy, the German doctor, and this year there has been a hospital opened tnanaged by Chinese entirely. Here free treattnent is given medical cases but 110 surgery is attempted. We are thankful to God for putting it in the hearts of these thousands to come to 11S for treatment. Those in the out-patient department hear the Word while waiting their turn to see the doctor. They also buy many tracts from a man who has a table in the building and for whose support we again thank Rev. J anles IV1 urray. The in-patients to the number of 67 I heard the Word of God in the wards each day and those who could attended the morning prayers and the tri-weekly preaching services that were held in the hospital chapel. As the men left for home we tried to see that those who could read took with thenl some sheet tracts and portions of Scripture. It would be a pleasure and a proper continuance of our hospital evangelistic work if a foreigner or a Chinese evangelist could visit these ex-patients in their homes to teach them more of the Bible.

68 During the year we have had three foreign patients in the hospital. The American Dispensary has had a good year and the hospital has received $1,567,58 from this branch of the work. The drawn-work, conducted by Mrs. Freeman among the Chinese women, has been a financial snccess and we feel that the 25 wonlen have also learned many Bible truths. 1\1:ost of their work was done on the premises. l\iorning prayers were held with theln and fonr hours a week were given to study under the supervision of 1\'liss Wells. In our last report we spoke of the great need of a water plant. l\loney for this has been borrowed. The machinery is on the way. We how have to return $500 a year for four years and hope that lnany friends at home may see fit to help in this good work. \Ve wish to express thanks to our many friends in the home land and in Chungking who have helped 11S with advice and tuoney.

AGNES :'\I. ED)IOKDS, 1\1.D. The report of the Wm. GalublelVlemorial Hospital for Women and Children must this year of necessity be incomplete as we have only eight months work to report. Being compelled to close the hospital for such a long period at the.busiest season of the year was Inost disappointing, but the necessities of the case demanded it. When I returned from furlough last April, a year earlier than l1ad been considered best froln health reasons bu't in answer to Dr. Ketring's earnest appeal for help, it was to find her utterly worn out with the strain of the heavy responsibilities and work which she had been carrying, it was decided best that she return home at once to avoid a complete breakdown in her health. A few days in the work quite convinced me that as yet Iny own recovery from a severe l.llness in America was not sufficient to take up the heavy work and responsibilities. By September 1st, Iny strength had so far returned as to enable us to reopen the hospital by cutting down the work in various ways as best we could, yet in spite of our attempts to limit.the amount of work by having clinic only three times a week, alternating with operating days, and by turn.iug many applicants away, the.wards have' been full 1110St of the time, and the work heavy. There have been..discouragements, but the encouragements have far outweighed them,' and when we look back

70 65-110t eight years ago to our beginning with llothillg but an empty hospital, not even a trained helper ill any line, and now to the work pressing on every side, and a corps of trained workers, cause us many times to thank the Lord that Chinese can be trained, and their hearts changed so as to be both efficient and trustworthy, and as the work grows year by year, we can but thank God for his blessing 011 our feeble efforts, and press forward with hopes bright for the future, if only workers will respoud to God's call and come over.and 11elp us. Of cases, we have almost all classes, kiuds, and: conditions; several interesting ones have been ill the. wards this fall, but a large percentage are, as in fortner years, those amicted witb tuberculosis in some form; surely the "White plague" is a 111enaCe to China's millions. A child, an orphan of ten years, turned out 011 the street by her future 1110ther-in-Iaw, because' she was badly affiicted with tubercular glands and ulcers, came alone to us, and with tears rolling down her cheeks, told us that we were her only hope, she had 110 relations, and the old WOlnan refused to take her back, as long as she was ill. She is a beautiful child, both ill face and disposition, and Illy onl y regret is, that now she is almost well, we cannot keep her and put her in school~ instead of sending her hack to her 111other-in-law" who turned her out at the time when she 1110st needed help. These cases show the fate of lnally little girls \V ho fall ill in C1tina;".where all too often, even in health they are considered a burden instead of a joy. One more case, that of a woman who was brought to.. the hospital in great agony, the prospects of saving her life, were not for a time very bright, and the husband went 1101ue' at night lnuch distressed, for she was the mother of a bright little family of whom he was yery fond. During the lligl1t onr efforts and prayers we.re rewarded, the crisis was past, and when morning caule her recovery was almost assured. Hl~r husband came early, heavy eyed, and I»OSt distr.essed looking, his fi.rst ~ords being "I know you have done your best but. I've come to take' her home to. die, I've had my bouse filled with priests all night trying to cast out the devils~

71 but they couldn't do, it, so they say nothing can save her, that she's. doomed to die." When: I finally convinced hitn that she was really going to recover, his face \~as as one waking from a sleep, and again and again he shook his head saying to h itn self, "how false how.false our religion all is, I don't uliderstand it a~ all." 1\1:rs. Dsang, the hospital Bible-wOlnan, has taught in the hospital each day, and in the waiting room preached to the patients, during clinic hours. The morning prayers;.led by 1\lrs. Dsang and tuyself, to which many of the patients come, the evening prayers in the wards led by the nurses, the Sunday afternoon service, conducted by 1\lrs. Dseo, our head nurse, all help the patients to get a knowledge of the Gospel story, and as quite a number of our patients have, since leaving us, becotne regular attendants at church, some of them giving-testhllony of the saving grace of God in their hearts, it makes us rejoice in the knowledge that some seed has fallen on good ground. :Miss Borg, my most helpful and capable co-worker, will give her own report of 'her m.ally and Yariotls duties, and now, in closing, I want to speak a word in appreciation of Dr. Ketring's labors while with us. The growth of the work, while in her charge, gives ample testimony of ber earnest and efficient service while here, and it is indeed to be regretted that workers fl)r God's vineyards are so few, those who come must.qe overburdened and broken down, returning home shattered' in health because SOllle one who should come and help is standing idly by and refusing GOd's call.

72 Report of W m. Gamble Memorial Hospital. JENNIE BORG. Necessity is again laid upon us to write a short account of our work during the past year, and to make mention of God's faithfulness along the line. Our work is increasing rapidly beyond our strength. \Ve often feel weary in it but never of it. The increasing weight and responsibility, is often far harder than the actt.lal doing of the. work. But through God's grace, success has attended our efforts. To l\fr. Peat and Mr. Wang we owe a hearty vote of thanks for aiding us ill procuring the property adjoining the hospital compound. Without this help I fear we could have done but little. The property is about i 5 feet square. We paid $ Mex. The property was covered with old hollses and it took some time for the people to move out, and it has only been since we reopened this Fall that we have been able to tear down.these buildings. A new wall has been put up around this plot of ground, and a roof built oyer the material that can be used again. There is lnuch to be done yet in cleaning the yard, carrying away of the tiles, stones, filling in ditches, etc. In the spring, while the hospital was closed, the. interior was painted and repairs were lnade and a large supply of hospital garments and bedding were prepared. My work alnong the the llurses along the educational line is not what I would like to r~port. Until the titlle we closed in the spring I had classes with theln every week but since we reopened the oversight of tearing down the old buildings and the building of the new wall has taken too much of 'my time and therefore this line has suffered. There has been daily Biblical instruction given by the Bible woman, Mrs. Dsang and there is much to encourage us. The year has been full of 'blessings. The inexhaustible patience of Drs. Ketring and Edmonds in helping me in lnaking 111)' wants known, when 111y limited Chinese vocabulary would fail, has been a great comfort. Love and prayer go a long way towards tnakillg labor light, and as our labors are increasing we shall need this year Inore love and Ulore prayers than ever. God is faithful and to Him we look for the supply of all our needs.

73 Report of Anna C. Liridblad During this my first year in West China I ltaye spent most of Illy titne studying the language because I find the dialect here so different froln that of North China. Since the beginning of last Septeulber I have taught a class in S. S. and also'a woman's class during the week at Kiangyeh. During Decetnber I was out II days and visited five of onr stations. The women came in large llumbers and Mrs. Dai and ~ had' as much work among them as we could pbssibly stand. May God open these poor women's hearts for His words and give us luuch of his love. Report : of B. F. Lawrence At the Conference of last.year :Mrs. Lawrence and I were appointed to Suilling as students of the language. The time until September was spent in study. At that time we were appointed to assist in the work of the Chungking High School. During tile remainder of the year Mrs. Lawrence taught English in the High school while my tilne, with the exception of one English class, was spent in study.

74 SUINING REPORTS. Report of Suining District. J. O. CURNOW,.Superinten~ent. The year comll1enced with a very full program of build~ ing scheme~ on Iny hands. The Hochow church is so nearly finished t11at the recent revival meetings were held within its walls. The workmen, under Mr. Fung, have done very ~editable work and we have a building in which we may take pride. The premises at Dsitongdsel1 have been walled in at the back but want of funds compels us to halt. New churches and schools will S0011 be completed at Swangjial1gdsen and Sangjiatsang. A chapel vestry 33 X I6 feet has been added to the church in Suining and is now temporarily occupied by the Girls' school. Vve have bought a large site in the city of Auyo for Mex. $750 which waits some generous gift to clear the loan advanced to secure this site. Dahoba needs $60 to free the house of debt. Pehtzechen needs $60 to set it right financially. For the boys new school in Suining material has been bought and a speedy erection is contemplated. With reference to membership in the church a decrease is shown in the District. A keener oversight accounts for the check. The subscriptions are lower in 1nost cases but the self-support collection has considerably grown. Two preachers have been dismissed for participation in frauds but a higher ideal of purity has been obtained as a result. The preachers have travelled and worked well. Most of them. have been studious and effective, but alas! luany of them are hampered with unconverted wives. The Bible WOlnen have travelled far and wide with their message:! of love. The work among the WOlnen shows a Inost encouraging advance in numbers, and a Inarked improvement in tone. The District schools have been more successfully worked this year than ever before. Many promising scholars h~ve been draughted to our higher schools, and admitted into the churches. The parents and public are most eff~ctively reache4 through these centers of light. The general standard

75 f) devotion and knowledge of the truth we consider 1nost decidedly raised by the year's work. Two conventions have been held during the year. The first, in the Spring when our workers were greatly strengthened and joined their efforts ill our yearly services during the great al1nllalfestival in Suining. Fifty thousand tracts were here distributed and thousands of pilgrims then heard the Gospel. At the end of the year we had a fortnight of prayer meetings, the climax of which was a five days' revival led by Dr. and ':\lrs. Spencer Lewis, assisted by Miss Golisch and Mr. Gin, during which time a great outpouring of the Spirit manifested itself in 1nost retnarkable confessions, contrition, and faith. in the Crucified One for keepillg power. The effects, we believe~ will be widely and lastingly felt in newness of life, purer devotion, and Inore glorious success in the winning of souls. The signal blessing realised during these special services was the direct answer of on1" blessed Lord to petitions offered in prayer circles formed in Amerka, E~gland, and China which were directly united in this work of intercession. The voice of prayer in the churches has thus been answered in penitent confession and joyous deliverance in these darkened and sin.bound lands. Report of Suining District Day Schools. MRS. JENNIE M. CURNOW This year we have had 14 day schools with an enrollment of 324 pupils, an increase of 57 over last year. (I'he Rogers Girls' Day School has an enrollment of 28 and has done good, work. Mrs. Gao has taught the girls arithmetic and geogra/ phy. The number of girls attending the District schools has nearly doubled in nul11ber, being 94 as against 49 of last year. Many have been COIning for the past two or three years and now unless we can gather them into a boarding school we shall lose them. According to Chinese custom for girls, they are too large to attend a school for boys or to be seen walking upon the streets. There is a lnarked improvement over last year ill the grade of work done in most of the schools. It is all encouragement to find that in two private schools (notlnission

76 schools) our Christian books were being taught. Several scholars were brought to me for examination. I was pleased to find that splendid work had been done, and rewarded tllem with picture cards. Report of Women's Work. Suininlt District. MRS. J. M. CURNOW The outlook 011 the whole is encouraging. This year I have given more time to the city work 'with the result that many IDore women are coming about us and that three schools have been coming up to the mark. In April a woman's school~ with an enrolhllent of J 4 was opened. During the year..j. of these women expressd a desire to be trained for helpers. Three weekly lueetings have been held for wonlen and other afternoons have been given up to house visitation. In the autmnn we had a siege of Asiatic cholera when we had nlany calls made upon us for medicine. Thus l11any lives were saved. Have also saved two out of the three cases of opium poisoning to which we were called. One was that of a YOllngwife who had quarrelled wi til her neighbors. She was determined to destroy herself and did all in her power to frustrate my efforts to save 1ler. She acted like a mad persoll, kicked and hit a t me, smashed a basin, bit pieces out of two others and crushed two spoons with her teeth. Nevertheless, I succeeded in pouring some medicine down her throat and thus saved her Hfe. "rhe Bible women, lvlrs. Kao and l\1rs. Chen, with the aid of Mrs. Li. have done good work in the city and upon the district Through these women constantly spending from one to three weeks in the more ilnportant towns the spiritual Hfe of the women is itnprovillg. At last we appear to have got the native preachers to take an active interest ill the uplift of their wives. Several are willing to send their wives to Suinillg or Tzechow to school. \Ve closed the old year and opened the new with rejoicing. Praise God, ill allswer to Inany prayers the revivallueetings conducted by Dr. and :\Irs. Lewis were times of lnnch blessings to our church and alsa to members of the Friends' church. Such an outpouring of the Holy Spirit we had never before witnessed in China.

77 TZECHOW REPORTS. Report of T zechow Disbict. R. C. RICKER, Superintendent This year we mu~t report a smaller increase in luembership than last year, the apparent increase being only 'twenty tnembers and ten probationers, but it has becolne evident to all that the life of thechurcb is the Holy Spirit, and that without Hint we work ill vain. There have been fewer attempts to' use the name of the church in managing lawsuits than bef.ore. In the spring the new churches at Neikiang and Dansalldsen were dedicated, and also chapels opened at Laolungtan on the Tienguchiao Circuit and at Swanghotsang 011 the Jungchang Circuit. The Neikiang church is the gift of Mr. W. P. Shuyler of Kausas, and Dansandsen was built largely by local subscriptions. A new church and school at Yuinlungtsanghasbeen begu~and larger and better accommodations are being fitted up for chapel and schools at Panlangllng,. I~huenjin, and Dayientang. Each circuit has had one or more boys' day schools conducted, all of which were crowded and the seven or eight girls' schools have been so successful that Miss Brethorst has. arranged for thirteen schools next year. She is now erecting a girls'school building on the church property at N eikiang.. Part of the support of the boys schools has COine from local sources, but it is hoped that much more help will COine from the church in America, for the schools need luuch more and better teachers and equipment to tuake Christian educatioll a success. Our Senior Prhnary school at Tzechow has a splendid lot of boys, thre~ of whom will enter the High Schools this new year. In a general riot over he~vy taxes in the country district. west of Tzechow the Lochuenjin chapel was wrecked. The Christians, though badly scared, did not suffer great loss, aud the official has been 1110st honorable in promptly settling for the losses.

78 Miss Brethorst's work anlong the women of the district has borne good fruit. In one place two women, 65 alld80 years of age became Christians; one after seeking salvation for twenty years t1uu vegetarialllstll. Both are learning to read and are enthusiastic in their devotion to Jesus. In this itinerating work two Bible women haye given :faithful assist~ ance. :Miss :Manning has had her hands more than full with the care and principal part of the instruction of the women in the Training School, and also building the new residence of the Society. It has been a great blessing to all of us to have Mr. and Mrs. Rape with us. They have made good progress with the language. Aside from the work of the l\'iission: we have. been gratified at the attitude of the government ill the suppression of opium cultivation thrnout the district (and other parts as well) and the closing of the dens. Opiuln may still be purchased for private use upon taking out a license, which is only a temporary expedient, as it is planned to stop entirely the sale of the drug in a short time. This year the collections on t1le district have been better than ever before, the amount raised for Thibetal1 work being nearly $I09, and the thanksgiving missionary collection amounting to $120, which is divided equally between the hollle and foreign fields. The Chengtll District has generously turned over nearly all their home missionary collection to help needy churches of Tzechow Distric~. The giving this year 011 the part of some would shanle many at home who think they give liberally, for sotne of the preachers gave as high as one third of a Inonth's sal-ary for the Chinese missionaries in Thibet alone. III the spiritual work of the church a coldness has been felt that has been most discouraging. The spiritual darkness has brought us to feel that a revival could be the only remedy that could save the church from absolute failure. We have felt this need in our own hearts, and have worked and prayed to this end. The prayers have been answered. During the joint conference of Shengtun and Tzechow Districts a mighty awakening has come to all the workers present, both foreign and Chinese. We look for a great year

79 for the church as these workers return to their charges filled with the Spirit, and it is with the keenest regret that we receive the physicians' word that for 11ealth reasons we 111ust leave the field at once and go h01ne. We know that God will greatly use the Chinese to bring in His Kingd0111, and we feel that whether we be present or absent He willtnanifest His power to save during the coming year. Neikiang Circuit. LI TIEN YUEN, Pastor. N eikiang city and District is a very large one. Its area is about 3439 square miles. The city of Neikiallg contains ab01it 70,000 inhabitants. I cannot estimate the population of the District but there are 28 villages within its radius. Among these villages there are fonr where we have churches. Five others we visit regularly and hold services, but we 11ave no premises there. :\luch of lny time this year has been spent in building church, school and residence and sllperintending the erection of a girls' school for the \V.F.::\I.S. This building is now finished. The Neikiang Boys' school numbers 50 and the girls' school 20. During the year the work ill Neikiang city has been nlore encouraging. The Churc11 members are more earnest than formerly. One of our u'rgellt needs is a foreign lady evangelist. My wish is that one lady be appointed to work in the city and to work the district rolll there. Another,.and to me greater need, if possible, is for a graduate of the Chungking High School to be sent the Boys' school ill Neikiang...:. Report of Ella Manning. That of IUY work that can be reported is so similar year by year I could almost hand in the sanle report each time. In the boarding school there are twenty of the most promising W01nen I have ever had. Some of these are takiilg only the Bible woman's course and sonle are getting the

80 rudiments of a general education alollg with their Bible study. There has been good growth in knowledge and, better still, a very perceptible growth in grace in nlallyof theld. The school still draws crowds of visitors which affords an excellent opportunity for e\'angelistic work. Many hundreds of women hear the Gospel in this way. l\fy only other evangelistic work has been a weekly class for WOlnen at Tswei 'Vha Gat and some house to house visitation. The girls' day school started with over 40 children -but there was great falling off during the year. There are bright, promising girls among them and some have done good work. These things together with the treasurership and the overseeing of a little building have occupied tlly time throughout the year. School and Evangelislic Work, Tze:how District. ALICE B. BRF.THORST. The Tzechow District coluprises five counties, each with a large walled city, and an innumerable uumber of large towns and villages. Traveling frolh one eud to the other, requires five consecutive days, without halting, except for the night. To care spiritually for the women and girls in this vast district is 110 small task and the work we have been able to do has 110t been so wearing as the work we have had to leave uudone. EVANGELISTIC WORK.-Dllring the year we have held WOlDen's meetings in 29 different places, 1110st of these having been yisited quarterly..\s a result we have now some women members in each place where there are regularly conducted church services. Three or four visits are not sufficient to train up an intelligent 1uelllbership. During the year Mrs. Lin has been placed in a station for two or three weeks at a time, and with a short Bible course laid out for her to use, she has taught daily the WOlnen who were able to COlne, while she was there. In the two places where this was tried we have succeeded in getting a slnall class of WOlnen ready for church Inem bershi p.

81 ~ 76 - The city evangelistic work llas of necessity taken a secondary place: the Biblewomen have Inade Inany house to house visits,and we have gone out with them as often as time permitted. The sick have been regt1l~rly visited, and help given where needed. DAY SCHOOLS.-Ill the District schools we have Inet with much encouragement and have reason to look for large results in the future. vve had five regularly conducted schools and two others where the boys' school teachers taught the small girls who could attend. \Ve had a total el1rolltnent of 160 girls. We start the girls on Chinese books and gi ve a piece of soap to each girl who can recite the Catechism. The desire to possess this treasure is strong enough to win the parents' approval, and consequently the majority of the pupils are becoming familiar with the Bible. I visit these schools quarterly and personally examine each girl and give small rewards for work done. Not only do the 6irls come in large numbers on those days, but the mothers and friends of the pupils also come and it gives us a fine opportunity for the preaching of the Word. We have completed all arrangements for the conducting of 13 girls' schools ili the district during the coming year, and we are looking forward with pleasure in being able to give several hundred girls an opportunity to learn to know Him whom to know is Life Eternal. BUILDING.-Nearly all of the building material of the Clara Cushman Day School has been purchased and is ill the compound, and we hope to have the building colnpleted and ready for occupancy in another year. Had it not been for the excessive rains it would have been built this year. Size of District, 5 walled cities and several hundred market towns.
