Opening New Country 



Rich Land and 

Prosperous Territory 

Now Being Made Accessible by 

New Santa Fe Line 



The new line of the Santa Fe through northwest Texas is giving rail- 
road facilities to a country already well developed and prosperous. The 
Texas counties to be crossed by this new line, Lipscomb, Ochiltree and 
Hansford, have been well settled in the last ten or fifteen years in spite of 
the fact that it was fifty or sixty miles to the nearest railroad. 

The prosperity of these settlers has attracted the Santa Fe and the 
one hundred miles of this new line branching from the Santa Fe at Shat- 
tutk will be in operation this year. 

That it is good territory is proven by the willingness of the original 
settlers to go so far from a railroad. Their live stock and the improve- 
ments put in on their farms show how they have been making money. 

The building of the railroad is another testimony to the worth of the 
territory from the farming standpoint, as the railroad is looking for farm- 
ers' products to haul to market. 

A number of families of the Church of the Brethren are among the 
prosperous settlers in this territory and recently a church congregation 
has been organized. 

There is still much good land in this territory which can be secured at 
very favorable prices, running from $18 to $30 an acre and 10 years' time. 

If you are interested in getting good land for a little money write to 
C. L. SEAGRAVES, Industrial Commissioner, Atchison, Topeka & Santa 
Fe Railway System, 1101 Railway Exchange, Chicago, for free illustrated 
folder and names of parties having the land for sale.

International 
Conference 

Church of the Brethren 

June 7' IS, 1917 

The following quotation from the 

pen of Elder D. L. Miller, in the Gospel Messen- 
ger of October 21,1916, amply presents the claims 
of the Santa Fe Railway: 

" In 1872 the Santa Fe Railway was completed to Wichita and 
the town began to grow rapidly. The Santa Fe has been one of 
the greatest factors in developing Kansas and other States through 
which it passes. It will, without doubt, serve our people well who 
come to the next Conference. It is a good road and gives fine 
and ample accommodations." 

The Brethren will remember that Elder 
P. H. Beery has been connected with the Santa 
Fe for the past 10 years and knows 
thoroughly the customs and the 
tastes of his people, and will see 
to it personally that every convenience 
and comfort is provided. 

The Santa Fe is a direct route. Spe- 
cial trains will be operated from Chica- 
go and Kansas City, details of which 
will be announced later. The Santa Fe 
also offers excellent service from Cali- 
fornia, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, 
Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas points. 
For further information write to 

J. M. CONNELL, General Passenger Agent, 
Santa Fe Ry., Topeka, Kans. 

W. J. BLACK, Passenger Traffic Manager, 
Santa Fe Ry., Chicago, III.

Sunday-school I^esson Titles, Golden Texts, and I-.esson References, References for the 
Daily Rible Readings bearing on the Sunday-school Lessons, etc. As an ornament for

AGENTS WANTED 

^ * The prices in our catalogue are very close, often lower than those of the 

publishers themselves, and so we are unable to offer as liberal a discount as 
we would like to on all the books listed. However, we have some books upon 
which we can offer agents a VERY LIBERAL PROPOSITION. They are 
all good literature, fit to be put in any home, and sure to bring you satisfied 
customers. 

Why not work for us during your Summer vacation? Write for partic- 
ulars.

THE GIRL WHO DISAPPEARED 



Bv The 
HON. CLIFFORD G. ROE 

Mr. Roe was formerly special prosecutor for Cook Co., 111., and had charge of the 
cases against panders and keepers of disorderly houses. He knows the " White Slave 
trade " as few other men do ; better probably than any of the patrons of the prostitutes. 
He knows why girls disappear from their homes and how they are kept in these places. 
He is also one of the foremost fighters of the hellish trafflc in souls. Out of his wide 
knowledge and strong purpose comes this book. The book is an illustration of the old 
saying, that " truth is stranger than fiction," and the readers of this book will agree 
that it can be made as interesting. It is a story woven from the facts of many cases 
that have come under Mr. Roe's observation. Illustrated with full page photo engrav- 
ings. 352 pages bound in cloth. 

Price postpaid, $1.50. Agents wanted. Write for terms.

My Promised Land 



" The field is the world," said the Mas- 
ter, and there is where every Christian 
is expected to work. Christians seem- 
ingly have divided that world-field into 
two, — the home and the foreign. Most 
every Christian is born in the home field, 
and far too many of them never look 
beyond that boundary. It is natural, — 
purely human, — to be unlike Abraham, 
who left his country, his people, and 



his home, and went to a country that 
the Lord showed him to enter. It was 
the promised land to Abraham. Where 
is the "promised land" in which each 
Christian is to labor for the Master? 

Not every one is called to foreign 
missionary service, but every one who 
desires to work in the place of God's ap- 
pointment and where the need is the 
greatest MUST consider the claims of 



16 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1917. 



the foreign field in connection with the 
home work before he makes his final 
decision. To omit considering the for- 
eign opportunity is to leave an impor- 
tant factor out of God's final plan in his 
life and, like omitting some part of the 
solution in a problem in mathematics, 
the correct answer can not be obtained. 

It is important that each one have the 
correct answer to his life. It is too late 
to discover this when we are old. This 
choice must be made in youth. And no 
one knows whether God wants him in a 
foreign land until he has made a sin- 
cere effort to enter it. 

While there are many reasons which 
may be acceptable to the Father for not 
being in foreign service, WILLFUL 
IGNORANCE AND DISREGARD to 
the claims of the foreign field is NOT 
ONE OF THEM. It is incumbent upon 
every Christian to know the field, and 



knowing it, to decide whether he shall 
enter or not. 

In this he has Christ for his Example. 
The Master of every devout life him- 
self ignored not the cry of suffering 
humanity, but came to earth and on the 
cross expressed the measure of his re- 
sponse to his missionary call, — even 
OUR NEED. He went to the farthest 
point from his Father's house and made 
the greatest possible sacrifice for man's 
salvation (Fhilpp. 2: 5-8). Before he 
ascended, he said to his disciples, — even 
to his disciples today, — " As the Father 
hath sent me, even so send I you" 
(John 20: 21). That word "you," in 
those words of the Master, includes you, 
reader, — it includes every follower of his. 
What has been the answer to that com- 
mand in your life? Where is the prom- 
ised land, flowing with the milk and 
honey of noblest self-sacrificing service 
for you? At home or abroad? 



Trying to Do Business in Heaven 



That is what every person who makes 
a will is seeking to do. Of course, when 
an individual has worked hard for his 
" pile," whether it be large or small, he 
feels like " running it " just as long as he 
can, and of course the will is made. 
Your lawyer may do his best to write 
your will; you yourself may believe fully 
that your relatives and heirs, unlike most 
other people, will not contest your will. 
Yet it is a fact, compiled from reliable 
authorities, that there is far more litiga- 
tion over wills than any other matter in 
court. One famous judge has estimated 
that 80 per cent of such cases of litiga- 
tion could have been prevented. 

This same judge speaks further very 
significant words: "Every lawyer knows 
that the principal cause of will contests 
is the eagerness of the business man to 
control the management of his affairs 
after his death, and the effort of his "at- 
torney, to carry, out his post-mortem 
p,lans by creating, by his will, a compli- 
cated trust. The drafting of such a will 



requires the greatest legal skill, and few 
of them, even though drawn skillfully, 
stand the acid tests." 

The Board, to meet this uncertainty of 
doing business by will, has provided an 
annuity plan, and disposition is made of 
property while the person is living. It 
is far better to execute your own will, 
while living, than to let it go to lawyers 
to fight over when you are dead. The 
Board has not lost one dollar given on 
the annuity plan. Perhaps it has had to 
compromise half the wills in which it 
was beneficiary, rather than have an un- 
pleasant legal fight. 

The General Mission Board is always 
glad to give information on this plan, 
and in doing so there is no thought of 
putting any one under obligations to 
give unless he voluntarily chooses to do 
so. If you want to know more about 
doing business on earth, as you want it 
when in heaven, address the General 
Mission Board, Elgin, Illinois.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1917. 



Qualifications of a Foreign 
Missionary 

For a long time the General Mission 
Board has considered the qualifications 
of a foreign missionary and at times 
has considered seriously making a 
statement on the point. Not until re- 
cently, however, did the Board venture 
to make a conditional statement. The 
following is simply a standard toward 
which to urge young people to prepare, 
but it must be understood that this is 
not required. Many other conditions 
enter in. What the Board would like is 
well-trained men, like Paul, filled with 
the Holy Spirit like that great apostle. 
But the Board is far from accepting men 
who simply have training and do not 
have the spiritual qualities which should 
characterize the messenger of God to 
foreign lands. In this light the Board 
has adopted the following: 

PHYSICAIi 

A sound constitution, capable of endur- 
ing hardness and not subject to any hered- 
itary disease; good health and senses. 

MENTAr. 

(1) Evaijferelistic. — ^A regularly-ordained min- 
ister with regular collegiate and Biblical train- 
ing. 

(2) Educational. — A regular college course; 
a thorough knowledge of the best approved 
methods of teaching, government and child- 
nature, thought and life; practical experience 
in teaching. 

(3) Medical. — ^A graduate of a reputable 
medical college, at least one year interne in 
a good hospital; experience in the practice of 
surgery, so that he may undertake surgical 
work alone on the field; a license to practice 
medicine by the Examining Board of some 
State. 

(4) Industrial. — Such training and experi- 
ence as will enable the worker to train others 
to do efficient work along the chosen line. 

(5) Trained Nurses. — Good academic train- 
ing or the equivalent in high school; com- 
plete nursejs training in some -reputable hos- 
pital; passing examination before some State 
Board. 

Note.— Where applicant has fitted himself for 
some line of service other than evangelistic, 
at least one year of Biblical study (resident 
work preferred) should be taken. 

DOCTRINAL 

Applicant must have recommendation from 
the congregation in which he holds member- 
ship; he expresses his views on the doctrines 
of the Bible and the tenets of the Church of 
the Brethren in his application; he is ap- 



proved by Standing Committee of Annual Con- 
ference. 

SPIRITUAL 

A genuine religious experience; a love for 
the souls of men; familiarity with the Word 
ot Lrod; habits of prayer; actual experience 
in personal work. 



Five Cents 

of 
Every Dollar 

Some people say 
that money given to 
missions does not get 
a chance to do mis- 
sionary work. In an- 
swer to that statement, 
in whatever form it 
may appear, the fol- 
lowing is given: Of 
the total expenditures 
of the General Mis- 
sion Board, last year 
(1915-16), namely 
$132,199.31, there was 
expended, for Board's 
traveling expenses, 
salaries for the office, 
traveling secretaries, 
postage, stationery, 
etc.. the sum of $6,436.- 
14. In other words, of 
every dollar spent by 
tne Board a little less 
than five cents was 
used as above indicat- 
ed. And that expendi- 
ture took care of plac- 
ing carefully $164,700.- 
00 in properly-secured 
loans, which is no part 
of the total expendi- 
tures. Those figures 
are their own argu- 
ment. 




18 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1917. 



In a Nut Shell 

The total receipts for the year 1915-16, by the General Mission Board, were 
$131,267.99 and may be divided as follows: 

Donated by congregations and individuals, ', $73,716.73 

Income from endowment and real estate, 39,545.90 

Income from the Brethren Publishing House,' 9,840.00 

Other sources, 8,165.36 

Total, $131,267.99 

That first item, %72>,7\6.7Z, is analyzed and some added information given in the

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1917. 



Missions and the Sunday- 
School 

There is no more promising and fruit- 
ful field to cultivate for missionary work 
than the Sunday-school. Already the 
fruitage is most gratifying, and in a 
sense no special effort has been made. 
The children, when taught to give nick- 
els instead of pennies, will bring to- 
gether a large fund for the Lord, and 
none will give more cheerfully than they, 
if the parents will help them. Let the 
children give unto the Lord. This is 
the record of the Sunday-schools for 
missionary work, as far as systematic 
record has been kept:

the Brethren, ^

brethren, to be confirmed by open Conference, for a term of five years each, except those first 
appointed, one of whom shall serve five years, one four years, one three years, one two years, 
and one one year, respectively, as indicated by the Standing Committee. 

2. Three members of this Board shall be chosen from the schools, and two shall be chosen 
who are not connected with the schools; the majority of the Board shall be ordained elders: 
they shall be broad-minded men, interested in Ch.ristian education, and working faithfully 
in harmony with the principles and practices of the Church of the Brethren, as defined by 
Annual Conference. It is advised that no one be appointed a member of this Board who is 
also a member of any other General Board appointed by the Conference. 

3. The members of this Board shall organize by electing a chairman, and a vice-chair- 
man from their number; they shall elect a secretary-treasurer, either from their own number 
or from out their number if they so desire. 

III. Duties 

1. The General Educational Board shall meet annually, or oftener, if circumstances require 
it. The Board shall give notice of its annual meeting through the Gospel Messenger, so that 
schools or individuals shall have the opportunity of bringing to the Board any question that 
properly belongs to it. 

2. As often as the Board considers it needful and advisable, or at the special request of 
any school, it may appoint one or more of its members as a committee to visit any, or all, 
of the schools recognized by Annual Conference. 

3. The Board shall have a moral and spiritual oversight of the several 'schools, and shall 
labor to keep them in harmony with the principles of the church. The Board is given the 
right to investigate such questions as teachers, textbooks, courses of study, athletics, etc., so 
far as these questions affect the moral and spiritual welfare of the school. The Board shall 
have the full power to make all decisions operative in these matters. The school shall make 
full, written reports to the Board as often, and of such nature, as the Board may require. 

4. The Board, shall give earnest thought to the needs and mission of our schools. It shall 
give all the encouragement it can to the work of education in the church. It may do this by ar- 
ticles in the church publications, by educational programs at District Meetings and at the An- 
nual Conference, and in any other way it considers advisable. The Board should be the leader 
of educational thought in tJie church. 

5. The Board shall incorporate, so that it may receive gifts and hold property for the pur- 
pose of Christian education in the Church of the Brethren. It shall encourage gifts and en- 
dowments to all the schools. It shall not actively solicit permanent funds for the Board, but it 
may receive such gifts in case of individuals who may prefer to give their means to the Board 
instead of to any individual school. 

6. The Board shall give advice to individuals or to State Districts who may contemplate the 
founding of new schools. In the future no school shall be recognized by the Conference that 
does not receive the sanction of this Board before beginning its work. 

7. The Board shall make a written report to the Annual Conference. It shall have the 
privilege to come directly to the Annual Conference for counsel, in matters pertaining to its 
work, or for a change in this constitution, without coming through a local church or District 
Meeting. 

lY. Remnneration 

The members of the General Educational Board shall be allowed two dollars per day for 
actual time spent, and expenses incurred in this work. These expenses shall be paid by the 
Annual Meeting Treasurer out of a fund provided by the Annual Meeting for this purpose.

A Statement on Finances 



The General Educational Board is incor- 
porated, so that it may receive gifts and hold 
property for the purposes of Christian Educa- 
tion in the Church of the Brethren. It is not 
the intention actively to solicit, but the Board 
has made arrangements whereby it can handle 
any funds that come to it. 



The Board is ready to receive funds for 
Christian Education on the annuity basis, pay- 
ing five per cent annuity to those under fifty 
years of age and six per cent for those who 
are past that age. Annuity will begin on 
the date the money reaches the Board, and 
will cease at the death of the donor. Then it

will be used as the donor stipulates, or for 
education, as the Board may deem best. 

Endowment funds will be invested in first 
mortgages on farm real estate, on the same 
terms, in the same territories, and under the 
same rules that have proved so safe and suc- 
cessful in handling the large funds of the 
General Mission Board. 

The General Educational Board is also in a 
position to correspond with you, in case you 
do not now have money for education, but 
plan to have something at some future time, or 
mean that something shall come from your 
estate at your death. Endowment contracts, 
payable on or before death, similar to those 
of the General Mission Board, have been pre- 
pared, and the Board is ready to enter into 
such a contract with you. 

Final disposition of funds by the possessors 
themselves is recommended by financiers, and 
even by some lawyers too, when the question 
of assurance that funds will go where the 
owner intends, is taken into consideration. 
Time and time again has it been proved that 
our brethren and sisters who had money to 
give for the Lord's work would far better have 
given it during their lifetime, for at their 
death the funds never reached their intended 
destination. It is better to put your money 
where you wish it than to leave the question 
open to neglect in giving it, or placing those, 
who are left behind, in a position where un- 
scrupulous men may persuade them to enter 
litigation over technicalities. 

The General Educational Board is prepared 
to care for funds that are intended for educa- 
tion in particular parts of the Brotherhood. 
It binds itself carefully to safeguard the 
wishes of the donors in such particulars. This 



fact is attested by the following paragraph 
that is written into the body of the Annuity 
Bonds and Endowment Contracts: 

" It is agreed that the income from this do- 
nation shall be used in Col- 
lege; or in case that college should cease to 
exist as a school, or as a school under the aus- 
pices of the Church of the Brethren, the in- 
come from said fund shall be used at the dis- 
cretion of the General Educational Board for 
the purposes of Christian education." 

This paragraph, filled out, binds the Board 
to use your funds in accordance with your 
wishes. 

For the guidance of those Avho may wish to 
incorporate a paragraph in their wills, in 
favor of the Educational Board, the following 
forms, which may be copied, are suggested: 
Form for Bequest of Money 

" I also give and bequeath to the General 
Educational Board of the Church of the Breth- 
ren Dollars for the 

purpose of the Board, as specified in their 
charter. I hereby direct that my executor 
pay said sum to the Treasurer of said Board, 

taking his receipt, within months 

after my decease." 

Form for Bequest of Beal Estate 

" I also give, bequeath and devise to the 
General Educational Board of the Church of 
the Brethren a certain lot of land with the 
buildings thereon standing, described as fol- 
lows (Here give the exact description that 
appears in your deed, of this plot of ground), 
to be held and possessed by the Board, their 
successors and assigns forever, for the pur- 
poses specified in their charter." 

Address all communications regarding these 
subjects to General Educational Board, Elgin, 
Illinois. 



Why Our Children Should Attend Our Own Colleges 



1. Church Membership. — We desire our chil- 
dren to become members of our own church. 
And we desire that they shall become active, 
useful, sympathetic workers. We desire them 
to secure an education that will more fully 
equip them for such tasks. We can not ex- 



pect non-Brethren professors, in non-Breth- 
ren environments, to give them such. They 
should be in our own schools during those 
years, when their habits of thought, visions of 
life and conceptions of religion are undergoing 
those changes, incident to reaching maturity.

2. Student Body. — ^A large percentage of 
students, attending our schools, come from 
Brethren homes.* Their ideals are Brethren 
ideals. Their notions of religion and of home- 
life are the same as those of your own chil- 
dren. Your child is, therefore, not put to the 
additional strain of mingling with new asso- 
ciates, coming from strange environments. 

3. Sympathetic Supervision. — Our instructors 
feel personal interest in the young people com- 
mitted to their charge. Because these teach- 
ers are of our own people, making financial 
sacrifice for our church, and interested in its 
welfare, they will logically feel a desire to 
relate oi,ir own children to our Qwn church, 
and theirs. 

4. Life Training. — Our schools are equipped 
or are becoming equipped with such libraries, 
apparatus and buildings as will enable them 
to supply their students with a technical ed- 
ucation on a par with that offered in other 
schools. In addition to this they strengthen 
the moral and religious character of the stu- 
dent, giving him a moral and spiritual ad- 
vantage in meeting the temptations of a busi- 
ness or professional career. 

5. Scientific Departments, — The student must 
study science. No education is complete with- 
out it. Truths of science hurt no one. Dif- 
ficulty comes when instructors fail to point 
out the errors that godless men have pro- 
pounded, — science falsely so-called. Our in- 
structors feel a personal interest in guarding 
their students against these errors. 

6. Place of the Book. — Our schools accord 
the Blessed Book itiS proper place in their cur- 



riculum. They accord the sayings of Jesus 
and Paul a superior place to those of Plato 
and Aristotle. They recognize a personal 
God, a divine Savior, a Holy Spirit, an immor- 
tal soul, a need of redemption and a world ob- 
ligation to the unsaved. 

7. Collegre Spirit. — Our schools are free from 
the blight of College Secret Societies. Their 
managements seek to make the spirit of the 
school democratic, uprooting caste and clique. 
The democratic ideal is dear to the genius of 
the Church of the Brethren. 

8. Church I^eadership. — Our schools are sup- 
plying us with a leadership. Consecrated 
leadership is the greatest need confronting the 
church. Your son can as well become a leader 
as a leaner, if you do your duty towards him. 
The graduates from our schools are daily be- 
coming greater factors in religion, business, 
neighborhood and society. 

9. Missionaries. — O u r missionaries come 
from our own schools. They are products of 
our own institutions. Volunteer Bands are 
to be found in our Colleges that are as strong, 
or stronger, proportionately, than in any 
other schools in our country. Their ideals of 
mission work are tempered in our own fur- 
naces. 

10. Investment Returns. — Our schools yield 
us the largest returns for the money invested. 
The returns are expressed in terms of stu- 
dents prepared for life. Nowhere else than in 
our Colleges can we find a combination of 
consecration, scholarship, instruction, interest 
and careful supervision that will assure our 
children the education that we desire them to 
have. 



Have You a Boy? Why Not Make Him a 

Leader? Send Him to One of Our 

Own Church Schools?

The General Sunday School 
Board 

By Levi Minnich 

The General Sunday School Board is the lin- 
eal descendant of the Sunday School Advisory 
Committee, first appointed by our Annual 
Conference in 1896 upon the recommendation Qf 
a committee, appointed in 1895 by instruction 
of the General Missionary Committee. The 
Sunday School Advisory Committee Avas amen- 
able to Annual Conference through the Stand- 
ing Committee. 

The work of this Committee was to assist 
the publishers of our Sunday-school literature 
in keeping our quarterlies, papers, etc., sound 
in the doctrines of the Scriptures, as under- 
stood by the General Brotherhood. It was 
also their duty to raise the standard of our 
Sunday-school literature as rapidly as possi- 
ble, and to conduct a Sunday-school Meeting 
in the Tabernacle each year, at the time of 
our Annual Conference. The Committee also 
provided efficient teachers for the various de- 
partments of the Sunday-school on Confer- 
ence Sunday.

* (1914 Report.) 



In 1898 Conference passed a resolution, ad- 
vising each State District to appoint a Sun- 
day-school Secretary, to inspire the Sunday- 
school work of the District, and to supply the 
Sunday School Advisory Committee with such 
statistics and other information as that Com- 
mittee should aslc. 

Within a few years every State District was 
provided with a District Sunday-school Secre- 
tary, since which time an annual statistical 



report of our Sunday-schools has been pub- 
lished in the full report of our Annual Con- 
ference. As the name indicates, the work of 
the Sunday School Advisory Committee was 
merely to advise. It did not have the author- 
ity nor the means to lead our rapidly-growing 
Sunday-schools to more aggressive work. For 
this -reason the Sunday School Advisory Com- 
mittee was succeeded by the General Sunday 
School Board, appointed by our Annual Con- 
ference in 1911.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1917. 



The Work of the General Sunday School 
Board 

To observe the needs of the church and the 
world. 

To provide plans for the faithful study of 
God's Word. 

To cooperate with the Sunday School edi- 
tor of the church in improving our Sunday- 
school Literature. 

To arrange for publication, through the 
Brethren Publishing House, Teacher Training 
courses, including doctrines especially adapt- 
ed to the needs of the church, and correspond- 
ing in grade with courses provided by the 
International Sunday School Association. 

To issue other pamphlets and books, as 
may be necessary for the development of the 
Sunday-school work of the church. 

To encourage and help the District Sunday- 
school Secretaries to active service in their 
respective Districts, and, if necessary, send 
special workers when and where needed. 

To take charge of all Sunday-school work 
and interests at the Annual Conference. 

To secure, through the District Secretary, 
and otherwise, complete statistics and to pre- 
serve them at their office. 

To cooperate with the schools and col- 
leges of the church in training our young peo- 
ple for active service in the Sunday-school. 

To secure funds for the furtherance of 
their work through Sunday-school oflEerings 
and such other sources as are in harmony with 
the usages of the church. 

To make annual reports to the Conference of 
the Sunday-school statistics of the church, 
of moneys received and expended, and such 
progress of the work as may be of general 
interest. The Annual Conference of 1914 
placed the management of the Christian Work- 
ers' Societies of the church into the hands of 
the General Sunday School Board, and in- 
creased the membership of the Board from 
five to seven.

Remodeling an Old Church 

Many of our old churchhouses were built 
long before the day of Sunday-schools. Local 
conditions have changed very much since the 
time when those houses were erected, and, as 
a result, the houses do not always se^rve the 
present generation to the best advantage. 

The old house, with its four straight walls, 
gave a large seating capacity for church serv- 
ices. When Sunday-schools came in, this 
same room served for all the classes. We are 
now learning that the best work can be done 
when each class has its individual room. 
How to secure these separate rooms without 
building a new house, has puzzled some peo- 
ple. Many of our churches have solved the 
problem at a very reasonable expense. The 
plan on the opposite page tells how one 
church took its large auditorium room and se- 
cured six individual class rooms besides the 
main auditorium and basement. 

If your church is not in position to remodel 
its building, you can get pretty fair service 
by the use of curtains. Neitlier the looks nor 
the service of curtains is to be compared 
with what you will get by stationary or mov- 
able partition. 

The Sunday School Board has prepared a 
booklet of plans both for remodeling and 
building new. A copy of this book of plans 
can be had for fifty cents. However, if a 
church is contemplating the erection of a 
building or the remodeling of its old house, 
a copy may be had free.

RUPTURE 

I use this means to let you know that there 
is relief and cure without an operation. Just

after being ruptured 33 years. No experi- 
ment; been used over 25 years. I can furnish 
you with plenty of evidence of its merits.

IMPORTANT NOTICE 

District Meeting appointed the undersigned 
for three years as a medium of information "be- 
tween the churches of the State District and 
prospective buyers of land. 

Reasons. — 1. Within the territory of each 
local church in our district there are good 
farms for sale, which will increase in value. 

2. The local churches are anxious to be- 
come stronger through immigration. In some, 
ministers are greatly needed. 

3. In many sections of the country there are 
those who are seeking other locations. 

Purpose of the Movement. — Complete and re- 
liable information will be secured about lands 
for sale in the vicinity of any of our local 
churches — location to towns, railroads, schools, 
character of land, terms of sale, etc., etc. An- 
swers to any or all inquiries will be given free.

THINK of a Louisiana 
HOIVIE 

How many people are there who would like a home of their own, 
who havp rinne -nnwr? Manv are rentinp- anH navinp- as much rent per 
year as Louisiana. Are 

you go: Date Due to do the same? 

Do'ii b CLO uiis.' xdrve cL itivv^ aays ana' come lo i^duisiana. This is 
a country with great resources, opportunities, and possibilities. 

Our lands are in the Northwestern part of the State, 40 miles 
north of Shreveport, a city of 40,000 people, and destined to be 100,000 
soon. 

We have been in the lumber business for 24 years here, and have 
these lands with the timber taken off. Some are open and some must 
be cleared yet. These lands are interspersed with nice homes, and 
have a contented people here. 

There are no waste lands, no swamps, no hillsides to wash. 

We have good water, good roads, good schools, and churches 
where needed. 

There is no better place to raise cattle, hogs and sheep. 

Fruit does well. Taxes are low. 

Corn, cotton and oats are staple crops. A crop failure has' never 
been known here. 

Why go to the arid or cold climates, when you have such a 
pleasant climate, and a land of such possibilities so near? 

We are only 24 hours out of St. Louis, 30 hours out of Qiicago, 
and 12 hours out of New Orleans. 

Our markets equal those anywhere. 

We need farmers, dairymen, stockmen, gardeners, and orchardists. 

We need six times as many people here as we have. We want 
these people in the country. Come and see what is here. 

You can buy lands at from $10.00 to $20.00 per acre with one- 
fourth cash and the balance on time to suit your purse. 

We have a folder that tells the story. Write for it, or come and 
see us.
