                       A. M. E. Church.                         153

 In the construction of the church edifice the plan should call for
a lecture room, chapel or basement in which such gatherings that
are not strictly religious in character may be held, so that the wor-
ship room of the church may be in thought and feeling of the people,
a place dedicated for worship. One of the abuses of the church
edifice which has adhered during all these years has been the organ-
ization  of  secret  societies  within  the church.-From  the South
Western Christian Advocate.


                     JOHN BROWN'S FORT.
  This year is the semi-centennial of the John Brown raid, and altho
no one can quite defend his choice of a way to end slavery, yet it
had a great sympathetic value, and will be celebrated in various ways.
After the War, Storer's College was founded at Harper's Ferry to edu-
cate colored youth, and the Government gave it several buildings
that had been used for the Arsenal and the rifle works there. But
the building which John Brown used as his "fort" and where he
was captured, was removed to make room for a railroad extension,
and then taken to Chicago and re-erected as an attraction for the
World's Fair. Miss Kate Field had it taken back to 'Harper's Ferry
and erected in a field which she designed to make a pleasure park,
but her death interrupted the plan. It will now be removed to the
grounds of Storer College and used for a library, and, later, a mu-
seum, Lincoln Hall. erected for the college by funds from the Freed-
men's Bureau, has lately been consumed by fire, and will be replaced
by a stone building.-The Independent.


  September 25th, to October 29th. 1909, occurred the Hudson-Fulton
Celebration, celebrating Robert Fulton's invention of the steam-boat.



                    SOME MODERN WISDOM.
  Stunted bodies make stunted wills.
  It is hard to tell whether a man is suffering from a broken heart
or a spoiled digestion. The symptoms are the same.
  Not until life has risen above a certain level does mind count for
more than matter.
  Among our heaviest afflictions must be counted gifts we do not
want.
  Men who do their own thinking make poor fanatics.
  A true leader looks beyond the next moment without losing him-
