The Rev. I). Bruce occupied the chair, Sister Louise said that leprosy was a very ancient disease. There were three kinds of the disease: (t) white leprosy ; (a) assasthetic; (3) tubercu lar. In Australia there are too lepers to-day, only one case being in Vic toria; in India there are 5o0,ooo lepers; Soo,ooo'in China, and 70,000 in Japan.

The result was the formation of the Mission to the Lepers. The Mission is inter denominational. It has no missiou aries of its own;,but it works through all the Missionary Societies.
