It is almost always when things are
all blocked up and impossible that a
happening comes. It has to. A dead-
lock can't last, any more than a vacu-
um. If you are sure you are looking
and ready, that is all you need, (rod
is turning the world round all the time.
—A. I). T. Whitney.
Unction is the tongue of fire, and it
is just the very gift which no universi-
ties, no degrees, no amount of learning
or critical attainment, no cultivation of
the science of belles-lettres, or rhetoric,
of elocution, can bestow.
OUR PAPER ITS FUTURE
With thU number we will close the
monthly issue of Our Brotuur in
Red. For live years it has visited the
homes of many readers whose kindly
words have done much to encourage
its editor. Now that Volume V. is fin-
ished, we yield to the demand made by
the Indian Mission Conference, whose
official organ it is, and the request of
mauy friends, to issue the paper here-
after weekly. The pleasure of grant-
ing these requests is not unalloyed.
In the first place, the cost of pub-
lishing a weekly paper will necessarily
compel us to reduce the number of pa-
pers we have each month gratuitously
distributed throughout the Church.
Many of our moat appreciative readers
have been among the poor, to whom the
paper has been sent without charge.
It would rejoice us greatly if we were
able to continue our " beneficiary list,"
but we are not, unless the wealthier of
our readers assist us in bearing the ex-
pense. Then, because of the distance
intervening, we will be deprived of the
excellent work done in printing the pa-
per by our Publishing House at Nash-
ville, Tennessee. Heretofore "copy"
was prepared by the editor in Mus-
kogee, I. T., but the press-work and
proof-ieading was done in Nashville;
and in this connection we must, with
gratitude, express our great pleasure in
acknowledging the faithful work of the
printer and compositor, and the many
favors received from the Agent and
Manager. But for the latter the paper
could not have existed this long.
In our weekly issue we hope to give
as much reading matter as the paper
now contains, but the form of it will
That we may not only retain our
present list of subscribers, but add to
it many more, we propose to publish
the paper at the astonishingly low price
of one dollar a year. Iu doing this we
trust we will have the assistance of our
friends in circulating it among the
Heretofore Rev. E. W. Brodie has
been connected with the paper as one
of its corresponding editors ; hereafter
he will be co-editor and will give much ^
of his time to work on the paper.
Our object is solely to do good. We
hope we will be blest with the patron-
age, help, and prayers of good people.
CHEROKEE DISTRICT CON-
On the morning of July 1(> we took
the hack at Muskogee for Tahlequah,
the capital of the Cherokee Nation,
where the Cherokee District Conference
was in session. After a hot, dusty ride
of 27 miles we reached our place of des-
tination at 4 o'clock p. m. We got
there just in time to put in a few words
for Harrell Institute and Ouk Brother
in Red befoie the Conference ad-
journed. From Presiding Elder Aus-
tin we learned that the reports of
preachers indicated progress through-
out the District. Two charges, Vinita
Station and Cary's Ferry Circuit were
Conference had a harmonious and
profitable session. We thank the breth-
ren for the words of cheer given and the
resolutions pas3ed endorsing our school
and paper. We got several new sub-
scribers for the latter, and the promise
f some nice girls for the former, dur-
our stay in Tahlequah.
The lay delegates elected to the An-
nual Conference are J. C. M<6padden,
Henry Dannewberg, Dr. Maubndge
and Rev. A. A. Dunn. The next
Conference is to meet at Chouteau, I. T.
We enjoyed delightful visits to the
homes of Mr. Robert Fuller, Sister
Jane Thompson and Brother Morgan
The meeting was continued, and up
to date near 20 persons have been con-
vened and nearly that many joined
We hope the secretary, Brother
Smith, will send ug a report of the
