                         Miscellaneous.



                         HOME  MISSIONS.


                 Among all religions, the missionary spirit has
                 grown and grown until it has planted institu-
                 tions for the betterment of mankind in every
                 country upon the globe.  Mission work as a
                 whole, is a magnificent organization.  Thou-
                 sands of dollars are expended yearly in sup-
                 port of distant missions and thousands more in
                 our own country.
                 Yet after this expenditure, after all the prayers,
after all the anxiety for the far-away peoples of the earth, we find our-
selves in the position of the king who, after being served to every
delicacy to be thought of, seemed still dissatisfied, and upon being
asked what could yet be desired, answered simply: "Bread."   Bread !
that simplest article of common  fare, without which  no repast is
complete.
  So we spread a spiritual feast for the Prince of Peace, and pray His
blessing on our efforts to send light into darkness, forgetting all the
while to work in the home mission         Not the home  mission which
establishes hospitals, schools and churches, but at the fireside. Where-
ever there is a woman, there is a possibility of such a mission-a home
based on scientific principles. where children shall, from the time of
their inception imbibe the spirit of the God man
  An eminent divine has said, "When God found that He could not be
everywhere, He created mothers " We can forgive the unorthodox
idea of the Omnipotent, in acknowledgment of the splendid compli-
ment to womanhood.
  The successive steps in the civilization of races and nations have
been marked by the progress of their women.
