Bishop Garrett, in a recent address speaking of the progress of the miseionary work in Northern Texas, said twenty two churches, have been built and are now doing their work there In Dallas the citizens have contributed $5,000 toward a school of high grade for the education of girls. A beautiful park of twenty acres has been purchased, and the foundation and basement story of S. Mary's Institute have been built of solid masonry.

BRIEF NEWS. Every day religion is the foundation of thoroughness, which is another word for truthfulness or honesty. Workmen that slight their work, whether they make shirts for a living or sermons, build houses or ships, raise flocks or raise families, will be some day or other found out. We want clothes that will not rip, vessels that will not leak, and bridges that will not break down. So we wont characters that will stand temptation, and not snap asunder under the sudden pressures of life.—Ex. Five colored baptist missionaries, the Rev. J. J.
