BEGINNING AT HOME. A LETTER appears in another column, over the signature of Mr. ALFRED FORD, which has been written at the request of the Board of Manage- ment of the Montgomeryshire Infirmary. The letter is primarily intended for the minister, churchwardens, deacons, and leaders in the chapels and churches throughout the county, and will, we sincerely trust, receive a prompt response. One would have imagined, in these days of practical religion, that not a place of worship would be without at least a yearly collection on behalf of some local institution designed to alleviate pain and suffering. And yet, to our shame be it con- fessed, only four chapels throughout the whole county sent a contribution last year to the Mont- gomeryshire Infirmary. [The churches did far better, the number subscribing being fourteen.] Perhaps the omission is due to want of thought. If so, it is high time our thoughtless friends were reminded that the Montgomeryshire Infirmary is an unsectarian, benevolent institution, which carries out the teaching of the Great Founder of Christianity in an unobtrusive, but effectual manner. The conversion of black cannibals is no doubt a duty obligatory upon Christians, but the I claims of sickness and distress at our doors are at least as obvious and deserving. And yet, only four Montgomeryshire Chapels publicly acknow- ledged this last year!
