Few people realize that the denomination known as the Disciples of Christ, or Chnstians, is in numbers the rif th ecclesiastical b idy iu this country, having more than 600,0U0 commumcants, and increasing at the rute of 50,000 annually. They have forty two colleges and twentythree periodioalu, besidea eleven Sunday school papers. For ten years or more they have been engaged in foreign misBionary work, and have now over thirty missionaries in foreign lands. Here's to the women who never slander., who never retails ill-natured gossip, and who does uot feel it her duty to straighten out the world around her. These curios are uot so careo as men would have us think. But tennis grounds, winter ball-rooms, and fashionable tea-tables are not their stampiug-ground. They have to be luinted; they are not matrimonial Dianas aiming at pocket rat lier than heart; they miud their own affaire strictl y. That's why the male creature Beklom hears of them and seldom sees them. They haven't time to purr with the tomraies and tabbies of leisure. - San Francisco Report.

And wben Christian people do wuke up to this faut and realize Uu awful meaning, we believe that they will apply themselves with a fury of earnestness to wipe away the peril and reproaoh whioh suoh a state of society now layi upon their shoulders.
