These societies are all in good working order and doing satisfactory ser" vice. HOW WE RAISE OUR CHURCH EXPENSES. Means for meeting our home church running expenses are raised by the annual renting of the pews, and by renting them on such a plan as obviates largely the objections ordinarily felt to raising church revenues by pew renting. Our plan is to have the abler members of the congregation pay prices for their pews that will meet their personal convictions of what is their proportion for current expenses, and thus leave seats to be rented to persons of smaller means, at small rents. It is a principle with us to see to it that every family in the congregation has a pew, every one paying something for its occupancy, what he thinks he is able to pay and that belongs to him to pay. This plan is working very happily with us. Seats rent from two dollars to two hundred and twenty dollars. On this system all our families are supplied with desirable sittings, and none are burdened, and an adequate revenue secured to meet all church expenses.
