The removal would cost us some money;and
a loss of some weeks of , business; but still',
was ventured; and the result, thus far, indicates
that. it was wise. The furniture, Ste., for the
nw, store-room and committee-room, were .
Plied,gratuitously by a few friends ; we save fifty
dollars a year intent; and our' establisliniefit is
much improved in comfok and, attractiveness.
We submit to the Synods the following State

our Librarian and salesman, our rents, freight,
taxes, Postage, fuel, stationery, '&e. Our . sales, I
owing to the stagnation. of .business, have been ;
not quite so large Its they were last year, but still,
the profits have met expenses.
2. Our Capital .has. increased nearly five hun
dred dollars.; our stock also, is larger by three
hundied`dallars, and our indebtedness is less by
three hundred sad nine &Bari; All this shows:
an improved condition.
"3. Contributions from the churches have been
less this year than the previons, by $l2O. Renee
our colportage work .end gifts home been; less.
This is deeply to be regretted. The indifference
•of our Churches to this work;; we do 'not knoiv.
,how,. to account for. When we say churph-,
es, we mean especially pastors and elders, the
leader's of the churches. The people we are .
