In Religious Thought

Mgr. Francisco Marchetti, who has been appointed auditor to the delegation to succeed Mgr. Donatus Sharretti, is a young man for so important a place, not yet having reached the age of thirty. He is new to America and, it is said, that he cannot speak English.

The ecumenical council meeting in Carnegie Hall, New York, was the most important religious conference ever held by the Protestant Church, Delegates to the number of two thousand, and representing every denomination, coming from every quarter of the globe, conferred together concerning the work of missions and the progress of that work during the past century.

It afforded an opportunity for summing up the achievements of the missionary fields everywhere for a whole hundred years. The council was neither legislative nor excutive in character. Nevertheless, it was not without practical results. From India, from South Africa, Madagascar, and China and Japan, from the frozen regions of the North, and from the burning tropics, they gathered, those men and women who have given their lives to the fulfilling of the command, to report, to confer, to listen and to learn. Many of the names that appeared upon the programmes are famous the world over.

It proved, as was anticipated, to be the greatest and most important event the religious world has ever known.

It will positively remove corns, and leave natural skins in their places. It sells for 25 cents a bottle (as reasonably as it can be made), and if you are tortured with a corn and will give our cure a trial, you will find that what we say is a simple fact.

There are seven great missionary societies, four in America and three in Great Britain. There are three hundred and forty-three smaller organizations operating in foreign mission fields. The Church Missionary Society of London is the largest single organization of this kind in the world. The next largest is the American Methodist. The other five are the American Presbyterian Board, the London Missionary Society, the British Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, the American Board, Bos

ton, and the American Baptist Missionary Union, Boston. But while four of these seven are American, the three British societies have larger annual resources than have the four American ones. Not only so, but two of the British societies are organizations in the Church of England, while all of the four American represent different religious bodies.
