case is dealt with on its merits ; otherwise cases of destitution would be very inadequately relieved."

This was the most successful anniversary of the Faversham Branch, the collections amounting in the aggregate to £21 3s. 7}d.

11, MILL BRIDGE, SKIPTON,

Nov. 8th, 1881. DEAR SIR, – Stimulated by the friends in the Keighley Circuit, we decided to have a collection throughout this circuit on behalf of the Local Preachers' Mutual-Aid Association. It was named by one of the brethren at the quarterly meeting, and our kind superintendent, the Rev. J. Osborn, gave it his hearty support; it received the sanction of the meeting, and was put upon the Plan to be made on the 24th Oct. In order to make it a success, six local preachers from the Keighley Circuit volunteered their services for the day. Handbills explaining the nature and object of the collection were freely distributed in the various chapels, but unfortunately the weather was very unfavourable, it was a thorough wet day, which accounts for the collections being so small. We have pleasure, however, in handing you £16 Od. 9d. as the result of the day's servics.

Yours truly,

E. TEALE.

GENERAL COMMITTEE. The monthly meeting was held at the office, 24, Bedford Street, W.C., on Wednesday, 9th November.

Present: The President, W. B. Carter, Wardley, Parker, Turtle, Madder, Chamberlain, Clapham, Sunman, Amphlett, Milsom, J. Carter, Wright, and Sims.

Prayer was offered by Bro. Madder (Ex-president).

The minutes were read and verified.

The monthly abstract showed, New members, 34; deaths, 3 members, and 1 wife ; sick, 98; annuitants, 169; receipts, £446 9s. 3d.; payments, £429 1s. 11d.

The total receipts since the audit in May from the branches were £1,541 2s. 1d.; and the payments through them were £1,578 10s. Od.; besides payments for working expenses, £180 14s. ld.; showing rather a heavy balance on the wrong side of £218 2s. There was a good balance in hand, but the consideration of investing a part of it was deferred till next meeting.

A letter was read from Brother Williamson reciprocating the Committee's good wishes for him and his, and stating that his health being somewhat improved he was able to go out in a bath chair occasionally.

On the motion of Bro. Amphlett, a letter of condolence was directed to be sent to Brother Plant, on the death of his estimable wife.

On the motion of Bro. Turtle, a like letter was ordered to be sent to Brother Dyson (one of the Trustees) on the death of his son.

Bills for rent, printing, and stationery, £14 15s., were ordered to be paid.

Cases from branches were then considered and determined upon :

An annuitant applied for an increased allowance, but the application not having come through the Secretary of the branch, the case was ordered to stand over for his opinion thereon.

Brother S. A., of C., aged 71, & local preacher 35 years, is a miner unable to work; he has a wife aged 74. They have had five children, all of whom have large families, which prevent them helping their parents

OBITUARY. Mrs. Plant, the affectionate wife of our Bro. David Plant, Esq., one of the trustees of our Association, died Nov. 3, 1881. She was a good woman, and feared God above many.

Her heart and hand were ever ready for every good work. She took a great interest in the Dorcas Society, and was not only an hon. member of the Local Preachers' Mutual Aid, but an active collector for our funds. Her sufferings during her affliction were often great, from which she would pray, in submission to the Divine will, to be delivered. The fear of death was gone, and she looked forward with delight to a glorious resurrection. So our friends are taken from us one by one."
