MISSIOXAKT WORK AT ABEKDAP.E.—A!any of ( ur readers are awaro that considerable feeling 1 as been lately manifested in connection with missionary work in this town, the Nooconformist churches feeling that they need together put forth greater energy, and with better system in the matter.

The feeling at tirst was that it would be well to employ a special town missionary and there are many who still continue to be of that ieeling. But the majority of the churches are more in favour of uniting to do the work them- nelves—to visit the streets systematically, with a view to find out those who may require encour to attt-nd the "means of grace." Ac- cordingly the place has been divided into dis- tricts, each district oiganising within itself to do the work. The town district, including Aber- ar.t, ;it a meeting held tnis week at Siloa school- I')<IIJ), has determined to commence with a gener- al praye r-meeting, to be held at Nazareth Chapel iitxi Monday evening. And it has been thought advisable to request all the churches in this (the town and Abernaut) district to seek among them- Alves by next Monday a number of persons- s me thin,; like ten per cent. who will be pre. 1 .red to undertake the work of visiting the tin.
