The Presbytii-y urges that all Christians should earnestly employ the present magnificent opportunity to. bring happiness to many hearts and homes, and to remove out of the way a terrible stumbling block to our material and spiritual well-being. We press ■ upon our people the duty and privilege of vi gent public _ and private prayer before Almighty God that this great end may be attained." 4 209
