Deacon Samuel Warren Vincent of Ed- " " ' "" ' visit here on Tuesday to the convention. Deacon Vincent is a man of the old school; and ~oodness, honesty, and integrity are plain- ly written in his face. It is a sure thing tlmt the inner life leaves its imprint on the features of man or woman, and the real Christian life aires a light to the eye, and a wonderful radiance to the face, of those who live tip to the teachings of their tteavenly Master. .Iud~eand Mrs. E.

NEIGHBORttOOD CONVENTION. The monthly session of the Neighbor- hood Convention was held with the Trinity M.E. church at Oak Bluffs, Rev. R. J. Chrystie, pastor, on Tuesday. The day was ideal for weather, there was a large attendance, and a very enjoyable and mo~t profitable session was the result Rev. David R. Williams, pastor of the Congregational-church at Edgartown, was elected moderator for the day, and the printed program was as follows : Topic for the day, "Possihilities for Evangelistic Work on the Island." 10.a0.

The topic "How to meet the needs of our island churches" was taken in hand by Dr. I Dean and was listened to throughout with !unabated interest. The Doctor changed the wording to read "We: cx~ meet the needs of ore" churches," and said, we must have divine fire in out" church if we want ! to get results. He said the Prayer-meeting was the thermometer of the church and if down to zero the church will not grow. We must have high ideals if we wish to achieve. In order to grow we must "h)ve one another." We must love our sister church members also remembering they are our brother and sister in Christ. God's Kingdom is a kingdom of love and peace, and we should put aside all bitter or hateful feelings, stop wrangling over creeds for God is Father of all and we are all bis children. We should stand by each other and work together to make the christian work on the island the most prominent work. He suggested the plan to form a band of-"'Minute Men" and women who would go where ever they eould do good and be ready for the firing- line. He said that it seemed to him at present that the firing-line was over at the Seamen's Bethel, as the results gained there seeni to have gone out over all the world. Ite said "there should be in every church a firing-line and the "Minute Men" should he ready to work and bring in men's souls. That christians should be different so they would be "known and read of all men" and be known by their daily walk and their way of doing things because they would b be Christlike. To be so we must stop arguing about petty differences of theology, and love one another, draw divine fire from God's altar and then we can meet the needs before us. These are some of the many ideas advauced and the discussion following was most interesting. The addresses and discussions were very intere,~ting and the siugingexcellent. Large delegations came front Edgartown, Vine- yaad Haven and the upper part of the is- land. O. E. S. No. 7:;.

It is the contention of the shore fishermen that the gill-netters take the spawning cod, and that in a few years the shore fishing will be ruined.

The Gloucester men claim they are violating no law, and promise to hail to court the first shore fisherman they san de- tect interfering with their nets. A Oi~t to be Appreciated.
