Notes from Laramie.

During the autumn a chancel has been added to the church, which was planned and in large measure executed by the indefatigable priest-in-charge, the Rev. William DuHamel. The service was well rendered by the choir and an interested congregation was present. The bishop was the preacher.

The Woman's Auxiliary. The Epiphany meeting of the Pennsylvania branch, which is always devoted exclusively to foreign missions, was held this year in Witherspoon Hall.

Knorr, 144 School Lane, Germantown. The Rev. J. Thompson Cole, a former missionary in Japan, showed some lantern pictures of the country and the mission buildings, and Dr. Talcott Williams closed the meet
ing by an address on the proved value of missionary work to the world, working as the leaven which in the end leavens the whole mass.

ST. MARK'S HOSPITAL, SALT LAKE CITY.
St. Mark's Hospital, Salt Lake City, has a plant worth $150,000. There is a debt upon it of $40,000. Bishop Leonard was obliged to allow this incumbrance in order that the hospital might be prepared to do suitably its good work. Over thirty-three years ago the hospital started in a small adobe house near my residence. I know somewhat of its infancy and its It has not heretofore stretched out its growth. hands begging for help, outside of Utah.

PENSIONING THE CLERGY.
The majority of the laity in the Church are refusing longer to invest in ecclesiastical enterprises which are unnecessarily competitive and which have back of them fundamental and ungenerous limitations. The unwise multiplication of ecclesiastical machinery makes liable greater friction and consumes too much fuel.
The General Fund supplements and overlaps help in all dioceses.
There are beneficiaries in every diocese shut out from the help of local funds by requirements as to years in diocese, seats in Convention, and continuous contributions. These the General Fund must help. because the diocese canonically cannot. To help all in whom you are interested you must contribute to the General Fund.
THIS IS TO REMIND ALL WHO READ OF THE WORTHY OBJECT AND THE GREAT NEED.
