Missionary Societies Active.
On last Saturday, especially, and
several other days during the Week,
the Woman's Missionary Societies
of the association held a number of
meetings at the churches and homes
of the various sections. The one
which the writer attended was a
parlor meeting of the Rehoboth so
ciety at the pretty and hospitable
country hon e of Mr. and Mrs. Gus
Wash. Having been invited to par
take of the mid-day meai, as well as
attend the meeting of the society,
we reached our friends home in
ample time, ?and ?were delighted at
the kind reception of our host and
hostess, and to see their four very
pretty and interesting children,
Ruth, William, Alline and Gladys,
ail under seven.
After a delightful dinner, there
was but a short period of time be
fore the buggies began to arrive,
bearing within large numbers of in
terested friends to attend the mis
sion Society. Among the first to ar
rive were Rev. and Mrs. E. T.
Snuggs and Mrs. M. T. Littlejohn,
the first two, having become well
kuown in our county as missionaries
of Canton, China, and being asso
ciated in that city with our mission
aries Mr. and Mrs. Lake. These
friends have visited a number of
places in our county and we believe
have helped the work materially by
the information they have brought,
and the real spirit of missions which
they manifest. These house to house
gatherings among the women of our
country churches are very produc
tive of good, and it has a splendid
social as well as religious feature.
On this occasion a large number of
the Rehoboth society were present,
as well as a number of centlemen,
and the meeting was led by Miss
Mabelle Strom, who has succeeded
Miss Carrie Burkhalter so long the
noble and efficient leader of the
Rehoboth society. Mr. and Mrs.
Snuggs made very effective talks,and
at the close of the meeting delight
ful refreshments were served.
The opening of the mite boxes and
monthly payment of dues, raised
the required amount, and this noble
band has already begun the agita
tion of a new organ for Rehoboth
church, which doubtless will soon
be installed. F. A. M.
