of those present. Many helped them-
selves. Many Kid Roasters.
Then came the kid roast. A large pit
in which a fire had been built was ar-
ranged specially for the occasion. When
all the wood had been reduced to em-
bers and long poles provided for the
roasting each man secured one-half a

"W. J. Bryan Is Among the
Delegates Many Prob-
lems Before the Convention.
Edinburgh. Scotland June 13 All
Protestant Christendom is represented
at the World's Missionary congress
which began its sessions m this city
today to continue until June 24. Dele-
gates to the number of 1200. hailing
from every section of the globe where
the Protestant religion flourishes are
present including the most prominent
religious workers in the world.
In addition to the delegates several
thousand Christians from Europe and
America will attend the sessions.
The United States has over 1000
representatives present and more than
half of the number are official dele-
gates. Theodore Koosevelt was expect-
ed to be present but he was compelled
to cancel the engagement and is now
on his way to America. Among the
nj-ominent Americans who are In the
cty and will attend the convention are:
William Jennings Bryan John R.
Mott secretary of the World Christian
Federation; Samuel B. Oapen president
of the American board of commissioners
for foreign missions; Rev. T. S. Bar-
bour foreign secretary of the Baptist
Missions of America; and the Rev. Dr.
James M. Buckles' president of the
Methodist foreign board.
The Main Work.
The main work of the convention will
consist In the discussion of reports to
be submitted by eight commissions
consisting of 20 persons each who
have been investigating the various
phases of missionary work. Their re-
ports have been compiled in book form
and will be circulated among the dele-
gates. The work of the eight commissions
may be briefly outlined as follows:
1. On carrying the gospel to all the
world. The number and distribution of
missionary forces both foreign and
native; the number of churches sta-
tions. Sunday school and other
agencies; the circulation of the Bible
and other literature including a knowl-
edge of the unoccupied fields.
2. On the native church and its
workers. The line of inquiry In this
case will bring out the present situa-
tion in reference to self-support of the
various hindrances to the development
of the native church and how these
may be removed.
3. On education in reference to the
Christiahization of national life. The
urgent educational demands Of China
and many other countries constitute
m themselves sufficient occasion for
calling a world conference
4. On the missionary message in re-
lation to non-Christian religions. The
aim here has been to translate the gos-
pel into forms of thought familiar to
the various peoples and to find those
elements of Christianity which In all
parts of the world have proved most
convincing to non-Christians.
5. On the preparation of mission-
aries. The course of study In most
theological seminaries should undergo
important changes in order that the
expecting missionary may receive
proper equipment. This commission
will suggest such modifications as are
adapted to meet this demand.
6. On the home base of missions.
This is perhaps the most important
commission of all. A noble beginning
has been made by such agencies as the
Young People's Missionary movement
the Laymen's Missionary movement
and the Students' Volunteer movement.
This commission has studied how to
spread missionary intelligence promote
intercession enlist personal service in-
crease contributions and fill the home
ministry with the missionary passion.
