This, also, makes lt. easier to understand the threats or tho liand-spinners of Preston. lt shows us that to-morrow is sure ti be a better day, for somebody wit' make work lighter, and the day Itsell ¡easier. Things will be better made and cheaper. Well, what did lt all amount lo for Richard Arkwright?

Presbyterian Mis- sion. A very successful Evangelistic Mission has just been concluded at Mole Creek. A fortnight ago Sisters Miriam and Winnie two" ladies who both possess the evangelists gift.;, ot preaching the Gospel, as well asTthe gift of song cou.menced a Mission in the Presbyterian Church.From thc commencement the congregations were large but at the end of the first week it was found that the building would no longer accomodate the people who gathered to hear such beautiful singing and impressive ad- dresses. The Methodists kindly of- fered the use of their larger edifice which offer was accepted and during this week even that building has at times proveo too small.
