The time is short, for yet a little while and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry. prayer and the roll call, Mr. Harlow Par­ sons gave a compelling message from 1 Corinthians 6 :19, 20. At its close about fifteen girls signified their realization of past unworthy and incomplete following of their Master and determination to yield them­ selves for whole-hearted obedient service.
