“CHRIST IN THE MANGLE ROOM Headquarters' Mission Church. - We are very fond of pictures at our Sunday evening Church Service, and many a careless man and woman has been brouht under the sound of the Gospel by this means, some of them having learnt to trust the Saviour and to follow Him. Every day we are more nad more convinced how much good may be done, not only with the Lantern pictures, but by the Almanack in the homes and other places. Our hearts were cheered on Sunday last by hearing one of our workers tell of the influence of the C.A. Almanack in a mangle room. The almanack was given in the first instance on the promise that it should be put up, and it found a place on the walls of a mangle room. The splendid center pircture so spoke to the hearts of those who used the mangle, that some asked if they could obtain one, and there is great cause to believe that definite blessing has come to the heart of - at any rate - one, of not more, as the result. Look out for mangle rooms and similar places, fellow workers, and introduce the Almanack os ome telling sacred picture that will preach the Gospel of Christ. R. G., for Capt. Spencer”
