Jesuit Colleav'to sieve.
Woodstock college, officially known as a
Jesuit house of students, located for more
than fifty years at Woodstock, Md., Is to
be removed to a site on the Hudson river
a few miles north of New York City line.
The reason for removal is insufficient
transportation facilities to Woodstock.
Some years since the Jesuit novltate,
where future priests under direction of the
society are educated, waa removed, from
Frederick, Md., to a Hudson river - site
north of Poughkeepsle. The new buildings
for the college, will cost $200,000 in addi
tion to the site, which cost $76,000. Many
of the best known Jesuit priests In the
United States of the rest and present gen
erations were educated at Woodstock.
Balance In Mission Fond.
The Congressional Homo Missionary so
ciety, one of the many American societies
having long records of service, was able
to begin its fiscal year on April 1, with a
balance of 11,200, carried over from Its
previous year. No money was borrowed
last year an no interest paid on old debts,
a record not attained before in many years.
The total Income last year amounted to
47.00. which was 175,000 less than the
year before. But appropriations had been
reduced with the knowledge that 1310 fig
ures were phenomenal. Congregational
churches in Minnesota and Washington
undertook for the first time last year their
own missionary work, which meant S2S.0OO
going to their state organisations direct,
and there was a fulling off In legacies of
M.000, a feature that nobody can control.
Private gifts amounting to 130,000 were re
ceived during laat year, a quite new ex
perience, and the society kept up Its full
complement of work without falling Into
The Presbyterian Board of Foreign Mis
sions Issues supplementary statement of
Its flnsnces, which statement will be pre
seated to the forthcoming general assem
bly. It shows the largest gifts to missions
ever msde by the board, amounting to tl.

also the largest, and were $1,632,000 from
regular sources. To these receipts credits
on account. of Income were added amount
ing to $80,400, showing a surplus on the
year's 'account of l'JO.000. The year before
carried only eleven months, owing to a
change of date In closing. Compared with
two years ago, churches last year show a
gain In gifts of $81,200 and In legacies of
$100,OU. A debt of $u8,000, carried over for
two years has now been reduced to $38,000.
An earlier statement, amended by later
receipts. Indicated a small addition to the
debt rather than a alight diminution of It.
Therefore, to data the new Interest in mis
sions on the part of laymen results In In
crease In receipts of this board in two
years of $81,200. The four other societies
lust ending their fiscal year show decreased
receipts and three fall heavily into debt.
Wkr Gnynor Belioves.
The Rev. Christian F. Relsner, pastor of
Grace Methodist Episcopal church, In
West One Hundred and Fourth street, re
cently addressed letters to a number of
prominent men asking them their reasons
for believing In God.
The following characteristic reply from
Mayor Gaynor was read to tho congrega
tion at last night's service:
"You ask me, 'Why I believe In Godr
Because I cannot help it. I simply know
there is a God, and that settles It with me.
I have absolute confidence In Him, and am
willing to submit to whatsver He wills In
respect to me. You also ask, 'What good
comes from reading the Bible?' An Im
mense deal of good. It sooths you and
makes you content and charitable. I might
add that It educates you, and gives you s

Kindly Ualtnntry of Mlssoarl Solons

The practical enforcement of Missouri's
statute granting pensions to widows who
have children dependent on them Is just
beginning. The Missouri widow is fortu
natenot fortunate in being a widow, but
fortunate In the kindly gallantry of the
state legislators. She Is provided for. If
she has one child she gets $10 a month.
Each additional child means $6 more, bo
the widow with six children Is to be
awarded $35 a month, or as much as vhe
