THE WORK ON FOREIGN PIEL09
SHOWS LARGE EXPANSION
FROM FORWARD MOVEMENT
NEW COUNTRIES ENTERED
Southern Forces Now Have Mission
$ ,ry Fields on Every Side of.
Globe With Audience of
DR. J. F. LOVE, "
Sec. Foreign Mission Board
Indicating the extent to which the
foreign mission work of the Southern
Baptist Convention has been set for
ward by the larger proceeds that have
come to it from the Baptist 75 Million
Campaign, Dr. J. F. Love, secretary of
the Foreign Mission Board, reports
that since 1919, when the Campaign
was projected, the following increases
in the work of that board have been
made: Number of foreign mission-
arles on the field has increased fromk,,.,, wkh a ,ikene's of the pHnce
328 to 540, number of native work
ers from 627 to 2,820, number of
churches from 505 to 891, number of
church members from 49,659 to
103,328, number of self-supporting
churches from 143 to 211, number of
baptism per year from 6,635 to 12,611,
number of Sunday schools from 760
to 1,447, number of Sunday school
pupils from 36,115 to 67,407, 'number
of day schools from 512 to 796, number
of pupils in day schools from 15,722
to 32r789, and contributions per year
,vfrom $173,372 to $437,568.
Baptisms Gain Rapidly '
Nearly' as many persons have been
baptized by the missionaries on the
foreign fields since the Campaign be
gan' as had been baptized during all
the seventy-five years of missionary
operations prior to the inception of
this movement, Dr. Love reports. This
does not include Russia, where more
than one million members have come
, into the Baptist churches in recent
years. Nearly one-fourth as many
persons were baptized on theforeign
fields last year as there were mem
bers, all told, on the foreign field3'
when the Campaign began.
At the time the Campaign began
Southern Baptists wore operating only
In MexlcB, Brazil, Argentina, Chile,
Uruguay, China, Japan, Africa and
Jtlay.' As a result of the larger pro
ceeds made avatfble from the Cam
paign the board has b?en enabled to
enter the new fields of Spain, Jugo
Slavia, Hungary, Roumania, and Rus
sia in Europe, and Palestine and Si
beria in Asia.' This gives to Southern
Baptists a total missionary audience
of 900.000.0CO, or more than .one-half
the total population of the globe, '.
Older Fields Ra-Enforced
. - But of moro significance than the
entry into these new fields is the re
inforcement that has come to the
Work in the older fields, in the esti
mation of the officials of the Foreign
Mission Board. This reinforcement
consists not only ia sending out many
new workers but providing largei
equipment in the way of church
, houses, .mlssicr residences, schools),
hospitals, orphangos, publishing houses
and the like. Summarizing the growth
that has come in the forces on the
older fields since the Campaign began
the following results are pointed out:
Number of churches, 76 increase;
number of church members, 108 in
crease; number , of church buildings,
45 Increase; number of schools,
3 increase; number of pupils, 108
increase; number of residences for
. . missionaries, 94 Increase; number
of foreign missionaries, 63 increase;
number of native missionaries, 264
Increase; number of hospital build
ings, 21 increase; number of treat-
meats given, 61 increase; number of
hospital beds, 104 increase.
Much Remains To Be Done
. With all the increases" that have
come io the foreign mlHgiou work onjv
a portion of the program that was con
templated for foreign misslonsas a
result of the Campaign has been ac
complished as yet. It Is in the hope
Of comploting this program through
more effectively equipping the wor'
and, workers on both the older fields
and the new ones that, the represent
atives of the Foreign Mission Board
are cooperating with those of, the 75
Million Campaign in an effort to com
plete the payments of all subscription!
to this movement at thia time.

Greeted With Protests
Claimed That William and Coligny
Were Not Concerned With

somebody may present a half dollar
on which there will be not a trace of
the American eagle nor the curly
head of the maid of liberty
There are 500.C0O such half dollars
in circulation now, and it would not
be surprising if some of them floated
down sou'th. It is also not unlikely
that the appearance of such coins
may be the reason of some disagree
able consequences. It docs not re
quire the imagination of a Balzac or
O'Henry to picture oneself , in. alter
cation with one of the uniformed
giants in charge of the Georgia Rail

infinite wisdom has caused to be is

will appear the words: "Nieu Neth

Jersey Poultryman Reaps Prac
tical Benefit From Modern
Luxuries for His Chicks.
Comfort for the hens! And, al
though they probably don't realize !t.
an Inducement to scratch harder, ex-,
rcise more, lay a larger number of
KSaJn the dull season of the year.
Thia Is what has been accomplished
on the Maplewood Poultry Farm of
Henry M. Reeve, at Maplewood, N. J.,
by the use of electric lights and steam
heat in the hen house. The hen house

arly spring brooding period. This
prevents the newly hatched chicks
from catching cold before they have
begun to approach maturity.,
Mr. Reeve does nbt contend that'
by using electric lights the egg yield
of each hen is Increased pe'r year, al
though this may be the case, but he
does find that the egg yield is more
evenly . distributed throughout the
year, so that at no season is he short
of eggs. The lights are turned on
beginning about October 1 and are
continued every evening until about
me miaaie or Marcn.
He keeps the hens on a regular
twelve hour schedule by means of the
electric lights. Whatever period of
time the natural day lacks of being
twelve hours he makes up with the
eleclric lights. If there are only ten
hours of natural light he turns on the
electric lights for two hours. If day
light lasts eleven hours, then he turns
on the lights for one hour,-
The effect of the lights, he has
found, is apparently to shorten the
moulting period of the hens and thus
prolong the-egg laying period. Chick
ens which would ordinarily be in a
heavy moult by October 1 have con
tinued laviner ecas through December
