W. Hollenback, on Thursday afternoon: ' "We have been permitted to give another year of service in circulating the Word of God and collecting money to support the work of giving the Scriptures to those who could not nav for them. More money was col lected than last year and 1,000 more hooks were circulated. "Money collected, $1,148.81; bibles sold, 812; testaments sold, 798; por-tlons sold. 2,019; total sold, 8,129. Bibles donated, 84; testaments donated, 276; portions donated, 672; tntnl donated. 882: total circulated, 4,011. Value of Scriptures sold, value of Scrlntures donated, 868.57; total value, 8494.08. Value of books on hand, $31.07. In eight years and six months: Total copies circulated, 42,671; value of books, i4.naK.in! total amount of contribu tions. 19.144.46: total paid ln the countv treasurv. $13,179.58. "In these yeara of work we have been ncrmitted to see spienaia re suits wrought ln the lives of those to whom we have sold or given copies of the Scriptures. We wish it were noBsibla to describe many Interest ing incidents to those who have so generously given of their means to make the work such a success. By giving out a small portion to some, not before Interested has awakened an Interest and they have asked for other portions, or a testament or bible, which has been given them. . "This has been particularly noticed among tho prisoners and tn other Institutions where they have much timo to read. Not only have they been Interested, but a very marked change has co'mo over the lives of some who were vicious and desperate characters. The foreign born and foreign speaking people have greatly appreciated the message of God's lovo In otheir own languages. "The Scriptures have been printed in 725 languages and dialects. At the Bible House in New York sixty-eight different language are used tn printing the Scriptures: so we barelhfimeanS-jL.r?ashlRg aUna; tlonalltles. so many of whom we are unable to converse with. "To cover the translation, revision, production and circulation of the Scripturea, which are Bold at or below cost, and many are donated ln homes and foreign lands, requires tne largest program in the history of the society. For every dollar spent only 45 cents comes back in books sold and other sources of Income; so that 55 cents out of every dollar must come from the hearts and pocket- books of Christians and those inter ested In the work. "A million more copies or tne Scrlntures could have boen used ln China alone last year had the means been ln hand to publish tnem. "Give your prayers and gifts more largely if possible to this world-wide, world-blessing enterprise."

Riley poked Nelson with everything. Ha won at least seven of the ten rounds. . In two rounds 'he had Nelson punch-drunk and groggy, and in -either of these rounds the battle should have been stopped1,' but the. sensitive referee, Tony Scatton also the promoter-failed to do so. When Riley entered the ling he was greeted only by the famous "rahi-berries," but Johnny only smiled. Streaked across his face seemed to be a mark of determination, for when that battle started, Riley waded In and Mr. Nelson .was forced to do a "houdlnl," by holding on. In the seventh round Detective Dan McKelvey ordered Nelson to stand out and fight, or go to the showers, and this for a moment made the Brooklynlte fight, but then, when Riley socked them in hard, he crawled back into his shell, and held when ed with French feathers and -wore a bouquet of sweet peas.
