3The time it takes yearly to prepare for this national convention is worse than wasted, if it causes thought to wander in the wilderness or ways of the world. The de-

6tail of conforming to society, in any way, costs you what it would to give time and attention to hygiene in your ministry and healing.

24growth of these at first is more gradual; but whenever they are equal to the march triumphant, God will give to all His soldiers of the cross the proper command, and

27under the banner of His love, and with the "still, small voice" for the music of our march, we all shall take step and march on in spiritual organization.
