FINANCIAL GOOD.-Beside the profit which
may be derived from a subscription price which you may charge for your paper, the direct benefit resulting to a church having the enterprise to publish a paper devoted solely to its interests is beyond computation.
THE PLAN is to furnish a neatly printed paper
of magazine form, for your church each month, so cheaply as to be entirely within your reach! You to furnish copy for local matter. You can give your paper whatever name you choose, and your name will appear as edi. tor, and your town as the place of publication. For full particulars, send stamp. CHURCH & SCHOOL PUB.

Thoughts from Thomas a'Kempis
Humility is a virtue of so general, so exceeding good influence, that we scarce can purchase it too dear.
Smooth and pleasant is his passage whom the grace of God conducts and carries through this troublesome world.

He that hath gained an entire conquest over himself, will find no mighty difficulties to subdue all other opposition; and this is a complete victory indeed.

The sharpest as well as the noblest conflict, is that wherein we labor to gain a conquest over ourselves; and this should be our principal and constant care, to get ground every day, by bringing our passions more and more under.

Work-Manual and Mental.
There is a very great mistake made about work. The man who takes a spade at six o'clock in the morning, and works with it without breakfast, dinner, or tea, till six o'clock at night, is undoubtedly a working man. But there are men who work much harder than he works, who have no spades, and who hardly ever touch any kind of man

Death can hide in a drop and ride in a breath of air. Our greatest dangers lie hidden in little things.

The absence of Dr. Haskell, through serious illness, occasioned the most marked expressions of sympathy and love from the convention as a whole, and from its
individual members. Dr. J. S. Holmes, the president of the convention, made a special trip to Ann Arbor to convey the sympathy and love of his brethren to our honored member and former pastor. Special interest in the convention centered about the meetings of the trustees of Kalamazoo College, and those held in the interest of the new movement for the organization of a Michigan Baptist Young People's Assembly. The latter organization was formed. with excellent prospects for usefulness.

I put THE story is an old one, but good, for all that. Said the camel: "It is cold out here; may my head within your door?" The merchant could not find it in his heart to refuse. Before long the camel's neck, as well as his head, was within the little room; then his shoulders; then his whole body. So the merchant was crowded out entirely, for the room We sometimes was not big enough for both of them. think it no great harm if we permit the beginning of a bad habit to enter our bosom.
