children. Our younger friends have their questions month by month in the Juvenile Instructor. The Gleaner Examination will probably attract elder boys and girls, but it is not limited to them. Candidates must not be under fourteen years of age, but they may be of any age above that. If we find adults competing, as we hope, we may be able to arrange two sets of prizes another year. At Bath, where the scheme has been warmly taken up, the Local Committee have offered additional prizes for Bath candidates, dividing them into two classes, above and below sixteen years.

THE GLEANER COMPETITIVE EXAMINATION. UMEROUS inquiries have been made to us from different parts of

the country respecting the Examination proposed to be held on

Dec. 14th. Most of the inquirers, however, have been intending candidates; whereas our notice distinctly stated that they were not to apply to us, but to the local clergy and Secretaries of Associations. Only a few names have been sent to us of clerical and other friends of the Society who are prepared to make the local arrangements, i.e., (1) to invite competitors in a town or district ; (2) to have a room for them to be examined in on the evening of Dec. 14th, and to provide pens, ink, paper, &c.; (3) to receive from us the Question Papers and return them to us with the answers; (4) to be generally responsible for the conduct of the examination in their respective localities. The following have intimated their intention to arrange for these local centres :Rev. C. V. Childe, Kilburn, N.W. Rev. E. T. Cardale, Uckfield, Sussex, Rev. Uriah Davies, St. Matthew's, Rev. C. C. McArthur, Burlingham, Islington, N.

Miss White, Cashel, Ireland. Names will be received up to Dec. 10th : that is to say, not the names of candidates—these are not required beforehand-but of clerical or other friends who will make the local arrangements.

We shall require to know from each local centre, not later than Dec. 10th, the number of probable candidates, in order that the right number of Question Papers may be sent.

One other remark. The Examination this year is merely an experiment, made in response to the suggestions of friends. The Society's expenses for printing, postage, and prizes, have been covered by a special donation kindly given by the Rev. G. Blisset. If the experiment should prove moderately successful, we hope the Committee will sanction its repetition in future years. Let it be noted that it is not meant for

EPITOME OF MISSIONARY NEWS. The Rev. Frederick E. Wigram, M.A., Incumbent of Highfield, Southampton, has been appointed Secretary of the Church Missionary Society in succession to the late Rev. Prebendary Wright. Mr. Wigram will, like his predecessors, Mr. Venn and Mr. Wright, be an Honorary Secretary. The Rev. John

Rooker, Director of the Missionaries' Children's Home, has accepted the Vicarage of St. Peter's, Clifton. His departure, after a service of over ten years, from 1863 to 1867, and from 1873 to 1880, is a great loss to the Home, and missionaries in all parts of the world are deeply indebted to Mrs. Rooker for her loving and unwearied labours in the care of their children. This paragraph was accidentally omitted last month.)

The Rev. G. E. Moule, D.D., for twenty-three years a C.M.S. Missionary in the Che-kiang province of China, was consecrated as

Missionary Bishop in Mid Chiva" on October 28th. The territories over which the late Bishop Russell exercised episcopal superintendence have now been divided, Dr. Moule taking “Mid China ” and Dr. C. P. Scott, of the S.P.G. Mission, “North China.” Dr. Scott was consecrated at the same time, and also Dr. Nuttall to the Bishopric of Jamaica. The ceremony took place at St. Paul's Cathedral, the Archbishop of Canterbury officiating, assisted by the Bishops of London, Winchester, Rochester, Antigua, Trinidad, and Bishops Claughton and Perry. Archdeacon T. T. Perowne preached the sermon.

The congregation of St. John's, Hampstead, bave raised £580 as a memorial to the late Rev. Henry Wright, who was minister of that church, and have presented the money to the Society for the special purpose of sending out an additional missionary this year. This noble offering, together with a special collection of £400 for a like purpose made at St. Paul's, Onslow Square, and other sums contributed by friends of the Rev. W. H. Barlow, has been set aside to maintain a missionary for three years; and it is proposed to send the selected man to the Yoruba Mission.

One of the missionaries lately ordained, but kept back for lack of funds, the Rev. I. J. Taylor, has been lent to the Bible Society for five years, to go to Japan as its agent there. Mr. Taylor was for a short time connected with the Ceylon Mission,

The C.M.S. settlement at Frere Town has been in considerable danger from the hostility of the Mombasa slave owners, who are alarmed at the moral influence of the colony upon the domestic slavery prevailing in East Africa. Their slaves, when badly treated, run away, and seek the protection of the Mission. Of course the missionaries have no power to keep them, but it affords them the opportunity, when giving up the fugitives, to remonstrate with the owners on their conduct. On September 10th an attack on Frere Town was hourly expected; but by the October mail, just in as we go to press, we hear things had quieted down,

Bishop Sargent preached the sermon at the consecration of Bishop Caldwell's new church at Edegengudi, the chief S.P.G. station in Tinnevelly, on July 6th. His text was Micah vi. 6. He mentioned that he first came to Palamcotta that day forty-five years ago. There were 3,000 persons present, and 648 communicated.

We hear with regret of the death by drowning, on his voyage from Sierra Leone to Rio Pongas, of the Rev. David Brown, a Native student of the C.M.S. College at Fourah Bay, who, after his ordination by Bishop Cheetham, joined the Rio Pongas Mission, which is mainly supported by a Church Society in Barbados,

Professor Ram Chandra, who, as one of the leading Native Christians in the Punjab, has often been mentioned in our publications, is dead. He was a convert of the S.P.G. Mission at Delhi, and was baptized in 1851. He had a narrow escape in the Mutiny of 1857, a friend who was baptized with him being killed. He was an eminent mathematician.

The new Church of England Zenana Missionary Society has issued the prefatory number of a new magazine called India's Women, which is to be the society's organ. This first number is excellent, and we have promise of a most interesting periodical, which we hope will come into the hands of many of our readers. It should stir up our lady friends to take a more intelligent and active interest in Christian work among the women of India,
