sermon was unique, ear11est and effec-
tive. Bro. Rogers seemed to be him-
self ati exponent of the text, that ''Ye
shall receive power after that the
Holy Ghost is come upon you. " With
great power he preached and testified
the grace of God. Several persons
were at the altar and prayed through
to victory.
The Company E meeting was a time
of real refreshing to our souls. Our
leader, Sister Radford, brought us a
most-edifying message from the 5th
chapter of Galatians, dwelling espe-
cially on "standing fast" in the Lord,
and the "fruie! of the Spirit. The
word was greatly blessed. to our
hearts and we trust it may bring

that the Lord has put His blessing on

Our watchword . for the year-

manifested by increased attendance
at all the services, especially at the
Sabbath School. Seventy-three names
were placed on the roll of honor, being
the names of those who had attended
without absence for the past qua.rter.
Thirteen bibles were given to those
who had not been absent for two

who had not been absent for a year.

REV. D. JtAND PIERCE has taken
charge of the editorial work on the
Beulah Christian, our eastern Church
organ, . We look for a bright and help-
ful paper. Every Pentecostal Naza-
rene should take both the MESSENGER
and the Beulah Qhristian, and thereby
save fifty cents on the two.
LET each reader of the MESSENGER
pray fur every ot-her reader, that the .
blessing of God may be theirs to enjoy
throughout this year. Especially if
your soul is refreshed by reading any
special item, lift your heart and say,
"Lord, bless .this to other&, as Thou
hast blessed it to me."
REV. -E. A. GIRVIN has been ir{ this
city for a few days. His presence is
always much enjoyed at
Church. He reports victory all along
around the bay. The Chu"rch at .Ber-
keley, . of which . he has bee'n pastor.
from its beginning, is more prosper-
ous than at any previous time. He
reports his associate pastor as doing
exceptionally efficient service.

WE were glad to see the cheery-face
of Bro. C. B. Langdon, pastor of San
Francisco Church, in the First Church
meetings during the past few days.
He has been to Colorado visiting his
friends and stopped over in Los Ang-
eles over Sunday, preaching at Elysian
Heights Church, and proceeded home
on last Monday. His Church we know
will be glad to welcome him home.
He expects in the near future to open
up the work in San Jose.
MRS. ROSE POTTER CRIST closed
her meeting at the First Church in
this city on Friday night after ten
days of very blessed special services.
This in addition to having served this
church for three months, assisting in
regular pastoral work. Her entire
service was greatly to the delight
and edification of the Church. A
goodly number of people were con--
verted and sanctified; and the people
were with great unanimity anxious
for further ministry from her.
REV. AND MRS. C. S. WILLIAMS, of
_Monterey, Cal., writing more espec-
ially to send an offering for the Bible
College_, say_: ."We are rejoicing in
the love of God. He is blessing and
giving some souls . . The past two and
a half years which we have spent
laboring among the soldiers stationed
here have been blessed days. But
this n.ew year we give ourselves anew
to God, to pray and work harder for
souls. We are asking great things of
God, and expecting great things.''

"ALIVE."-Rom. 6:8.
ALBERT T. HARRIS.
I am glad that there is a ''life'' that
is so much "alive" that dead formal-
ists and sinners know where to locate
it. I am glad that there is one open
door in this wicked city of Hammond
where the common people are wel-
come, where sin is .denounced, and
where Jesus Christ is held up as a
Saviour and a Sanctifier. Ask any
po1iceman i'n this city to you to'
a religious organization, and immedi-
ately he will send you the mag-
nificent church edifices to th,e common
little Pentecostal Churchof the Naz-
arene. Ask a business man to direct
you to a. place of worship and he will
say, "You had better go to the Pen-
tecostal Church of the Nazarene."
If- a l.etter of parcel comes to the post-
-- .
with nothing marked ori it;, but
. "Holiness," it is sent to us at once.
Beloved; w h;y: is this so? Let me tell
you that it is not only because we
have "life," but because we have
"abundant life"-enough to let the
devil know that we are here. Halle-
lujah! We are "alive": unto God
through our Lord J esus Christ.
Amen! The fire is burning. Souls
are being saved and sanctified, the
saints are reJOicing, and we are
"going up" to possess the land.-

-EXTRACT: - ' ' I am writing you about
a splendid young lady who has been
in mission work for two years. She
has a remunerative offer in mission
work, but desires to study the Bible
for better- preparation as a worker.
She has used her money in the Lord's
work, so I feel that i:( some one (or
more) should have money they could
use to pay her- .way in the College
they would f eel well repaid when
they knew her. I should like the
privilege of sending her -myself, but
cannot" do more than pay her way
from here to V is Angeles, if- Eome
one is led to pay her expenses there.
I wpuld not give her such a recom-
mendation if I did not know her and
believe her to be one of the strongest
characters I have evermet. If there
is any way at all for the means to be
provided, please l:'et me _ know imme-
