clearly tbat it is a fraud for the
owner ot property, real or personal,

denominations in Philadelphia have
just completed .1 stupendous Chris
tian work. It aimed to visit one
million and a quarter people in one
duv with an eu inviiatioi n

city for the work into eighteen dis
tricts, one hundred and thirty-seven
sub-districts, and these Into blocks
and -Sections for each pair of visiters
or single visitor. Of these there
were enrolled about ten thousand.
The purpose of the visitation is
simply to give the churches' greet
ings and invitation, and to take a
religious census. Every home was
asked to name its church preference
or membership, and thus in effect to
put under the care of some church
and pastor when the cards are care
fully distributed. Probably 50,000
people will have 110 church prefer
ence, and these will le systematic
ally visited afterward by earnest
Christian people. The visitation
took place on Washington's Birth
day, February 22d, and returns
were made the sainecvening, in some
districts, already tabulated anil sent
in to headquarters ofthe city. Quick
