A* CALL TO MINISTERS. S.ir,-Wiil you allow me to say a few words to the ministers of the Gospel? It is high time for the servants of God to awake to their re- sponsibility here in Merthyr. What are they doing to savo souls for the Master's kingdom ? It is high time to awake out of their skep. The minister of each Christian Church should awake to his duty outside as well as insido tiho church. Their religion is far too comfortable. They should leave their easy chairs, pull off their kid gloves and top hats, and, for Christ's sake, go down and save the lost souls for whom Christ died. Do they ever think of the perish- ing multitudes that never enter a place of wor- slup because it is far too respectable for them? Look at that great building, the Y.M.C.A.. that is being raised to save young men. May I ask, what is being done to save young womp'n? The young men are ever lounging about the street corners, with hands in their pocKets and pipes in their mouths. They won't go into the piacas provided for them already without put- ting the town to all the expense for the Y.M.C.A. Look at our Rescue Home and the few rescue workers struggling feebly trying to save a few. Why not take an, individual in- terest in the Rescue Home, and help that to become self-supportin?. and give scope to the workers to go forward with "their noble work in saying JOlJng girls from ruin. £ 200 can he raised quite easily one afternoon over a toot- b&U match. A shelter has been spoken about, y&t nothing has been done in that direction. I think .the whole town ought to take, an, in- tecest ip the rogcue work. It could 6oon be mad? a succes^ and sufficient funds raised to -1 ua carry on God's work in saving individual souls^ Lot tha young. n?@n afterwards_ be seen to. Let us try to save our young girls first from immorality and ruin. Let the whole district lice up the roscu? woTk. Tho churches hav« done their part in '■ Iii.; way, but the whole dis- trict can* do more; and as the money can bo gained for football matches, 1ft it to a&va ita lo«( fel]en4 ja Ihe fihfpe of a laundry, or some such like insti- tute, where girls could bo employed. I hope these few remarks will have a good result.—I am, Sir, yours, etc., A CHRISTIAN WORKER.
