In our editorial notes last week
on the second advent of Christ, the
word “Father” was put in through
mistake. It should have been “Son.”
Bro. S. Powell from near Albany
called in one day this week and
gave us quite a list of subscribers.
He makes an encouraging report of
the work in his vicinity.
A brother editor writes us that
he likes the “ make-up ” and the
“ get-up ” of the H erald . We sup
pose that our brother knows from
actuaT experience^ that it requires
considerable “ get up ” in order to
“make-up,” and that the “make
up ” is an essential element of the
‘ get up.” In fact we must have

The Christian-Evangelist has
commenced a series of articles on
“ Baptists and Disciples.” The pro
positions are laid down as follows :
The plan of this series of articles
will be to showy^_
1. That the things in which we
an<l the Baptists agree constitute a
Scriptural basis of union.
2. That the things wherein we
differ have been unduly magnified
in many instances, and hoiv they
may be lessened.
3. That these differences, re
