Remittances of checks or money orders, or in-quires for further information, may be ad- dressed to,- Pres. Horace Bumstead., D.D., Atlanta, Go., The closing months-" of the calendar year are always the most trying months for our treasury. Payments from students ¦are small because they do not receive, until the holidays the wages for their summer's ' school-teaching. Donations ' from our friends are likewise small, most of them' preferring" to give between January and June. The New Year is now begun. The students'payments have already begun to increase, but not enough to meet the heavy liabilities already incurred for their tution and board during the past three months. Donations must also increase, and that largely, to enable us to main-t;un our credit with those to whom we are indebted for necessary supplies. In view of our debt of $.10,000 for last year, will not some of our friends increase the amount of their gifts this year? Some of our TRUSTEE OF ATLANTA UNIVERSITY FOR ONE YEAR. Rev. Wm. J.

Two years ago one such friend (whose gift of less than $50. was a noble one for him) was able, by friendly suggestions and letters of intro-duction, to secure for. our work more than $1,000. A dozen friends like him would soon have our debt paid and our treasury full. Will not you, good reader, be one?- EDITORIAL CORRESPONDENCE. Boston, Mass., Dec. 31, 1889. After an interval of seventeen years, I am enjoying the privilege of spending the holiday month in this city of my childhood. In the midst of work for the University, my eyes and cars arc being continually reminded of the wonderful character of this New England civilization. Not a day passes that does not offer some attractive feast for intellectual, spiritual or artistic taste. Even to walk the streets at this holiday season and look into the shop windows with their 'infinite variety of wares for the Christ- mas trade 'is- an experience not easily, duplicated elsewhere. Soon after my arrival here, a three days meeting of National Evangeli-cal Alliance was held in Tremont .Tem-. ple,which made a profound impression; upon the community. Seldom has such an array of able speakers from so many different denominations of Christians, and from, so many different parts of the country been brought together upon the same platform. Seldom has so much good practical common sense in regard to the work of our common Christianity been crowded into the addresses of any religious gathering. It was my privilege to attend three of the nine sessions. The-addresses of Archdeacon Mackay-Smith, (Episcopalian) of New York, of Dr. Hoge, (Presbyterian) of Richmond, of Dr. Parkhurst, (Presbyterian) of New York, and of Dr. Phillips Brooks, (Episcopalian) of Boston were especial-ly stimulating. At one point when a subject had been thrown open for discus-sion, several of the volunteer speakers got badly off the track and the presiding officer, Hon. Wm. E. Dodge, was obliged to remind the audience that it would be well to stick to the subject. "If any one," said he, "has any practical suggestions to make as to how all Christians can unite in the work of their common Lord we shall be delighted to hear him." Then up rose a colored Episcopal cler-gyman from Texas, who said: "I should be recreant to the race I represent, if I did not respond to such an invitation as that." And then followed a ringing speech on the co-operation of Christians without regard to race or color, the eloquence of which elicited the loudest applause from the great audience; and at the close of the session the speaker was called upon to pronounce the benediction. Another event of the past month has been Mr. Henry W. Crudy's brilliant
