has only strengthened our previous
ly strong convictions as to the value
and indispensableness of thejkind
of work we arc doing in Kentucky.
Not only does it give new life and
to be as successful in winning new
converts to Christ as if they were
our only care. We have had an
average of only four evangelists m
the field all their time, and of one
other, two-thirds of his time, but
have gaineu 766 additions to the
church an average of 166 to each
man. When the world sees the
church revived and put into good
working order, they are more dis
posed to unite their spiritual for»
done the same kind of work, re
porting on the same blanks. rlhe
reason we report the unusual items
of religious visits, the number put
under’ discipline, officers ordained,
officers’ meetings organized, the
number of our meetings with them,
and the hours spent in those meet
ings, &c., is that these indispensable
duties constitute so large a part of
our labors and require so large a
part of our time that we would do
ourselves great injustice not to re-

always bringing these neglected
duties before the public mind to
educate it in the right direction.
It C09t the State Evangelist more
labor perhaps to revise the 26
Church Registers, to cull out the
disorderly names, to visit them in
person, or get the elders at it, and
so put the above named 70 under
discipline, than it cost him to win
the 80 affîtîtîbns to the church. To
ascertain that the 34 officers were
suitable persons to be ordained", and

and their congregations ; to organ

Notes and Comments.
A Calvinist preacher, John Theo
bald, died recently at Sodaville.
Within a year the only two Calvin
ist preachers in this part of the
State have died. There are no
ditions, the Sunday-schools, the 5
young men’s prayer meeting« start
ed, the 42 regular officers’ meetings
organized, the 75 officers ordained
and instructed, the 25 preachers
located, the 20 weekly church meet
ings established, the new houses of
worship built, the $9,270 raised for
home use, &c., point to the radical
nature of our evangelistic labor, and
should renew our thanksgiving to
God for the past and our prayers
for grace to help for time to come.
