and providlng for the appoint
ment of a committee of five to inquire
Into the details and ;he plan of the work,
this committee to report to a subsequent
meeting:. if d.omed advisable. .-_ motion
to the effect was put and adopted, and
the assembly dLsp.rsea after the benedic
t-ic.ii had been pronounced.
Thr- meeting at the Se\ _nth-Street Chris?
tian Church last night, tvith a view of or
ganizing a Virginia branch of 'the Ameri?
can Society of Religious Education, was
not as harmonious an affair as might hav'e
bcen desired. The invitation cards were
signed by a committee composed of Messrs.
Robert Stiles, John Morton, S. LI. Hawes,
B. F. Johnson and J. L. Hill.
The meeting was called to order by Major
Stiles, who explained that the purpose of
the assembly was to hear representatives
of the Board of Regents of the Society as
to whether or not there should be a State
branch of the organization in Virginia.
The Society was represented by Revs.
Gilbert and Gordon, the secretary and as?
sistant secretary of the Assoeiation, re
spectively, who explained that the head
and president of the Society was Mr. Jus?
tice _3__.an, of tlie Supreme Court of the
L'nitfrd States, _nd .ha-t its objee.. was the
advancement of Bible study and the devel?
opment of spiritual life. It was pointed .
out by Mr. Gilbert that this Society fur
nishc-d at a small cost text-books providlng
a Bible study clussified in four parts?the
Sundav-school teaehers, normal school, the
Bible school at home, the intermediate
dc-partmen. and the college department.
These studies, Mr. Gilbert ej-plained, re?
quired two years. The plans were simple,
only au English education being neces?
.Yhen the representatives of the .Asso?
eiation had conclufied their addresses they
announced tha: they Would be glad to
answer any questions> that. miglit be asked
them regarding the plan of ihe work.
COST AXD PLAX.
One of the first persons to inlerrogaie
tin- speakers was Rev. Landon R. Mason,
rector of Grace Episcopal Church. of this
city. He was anxious to know the cost of
the propos. d litcrature to each student
atid the other details of the plan. Rev.
Mr. Gilbert replied that -the text-books
va:i .1 In price, but were about 25 cents
each. He added that the purchase of :he
literatnre was not what thc- Society sought;
it sought the promotioh'of Bibie study
and religious education.
Major Stiles said he knew- of no better
way to advance Bible study than to study
tlie real Word of God.
Mr. B. F. Johnson made a few remarks,
in which he expressed the opinion that the
meeting should approve the formation of
a branch of the Society in this State. Some
one psked if the Societv was inter-denomi
national. to which Mr. Gilbert replied in
MOTIOX TO lXDORKI'L
After a great deal of discussion a mo?
tion was oTered to indorse the. work of
tbe society and io appoint a committee of
five to look into its merits and report a
plan of organization in tltis State. The
?ir. . propositlon was adopti-d by a very
small vote, whereapon Rev. Mr. Mason
took Uie gVound that as the vote had'
been feebie t shou.d be reconsidered ana
thc whole matter should be referred to
-.. committee tn he charged with ihe duty
of inquirins into tlie plan and work of
the societv with a view of reporting at
.. subsoquent meeting whether or not there
should be a branch of the assoeiation in
Rev. Carey EX Morgan, pastor of the
Se\-hth-Street Christian Church, spoke
briefly, saying he thought those present
:VaIlv felt. in favor of die association's
work, and that it should be indorsed. A

Mr. 'Eugene Massie said the matter
was one which should be inquired into
cartsfully. The literature should be ex

be khown whether or not it was or was

had been sufii_ient!y explained for those

MONSTER LABOR MEETING. -
The Executive Committee u_ tne City
Democratic Committee held a meeting m
Chairman Gordon's oflice yesterday "after?
noon, and decided to hold a big rally for
the working men at Old''Market Hall, on
Friday night. An effort has been made to
secure ex-Congressman Charles H. Turner,
of one of the Tammany Districts of New
Yorw city, to make the principal address
and it is very probable that he will ac?
cept. Mr. Turner started his career driv
ing an ice wagon in New York city, and
was taken up by the working people a.pd
eleeted to Congress. He is said to be a
speakei of much force and ability.
COLONEL BUTTOX HERE.
Col Joseph Button, secretary of the
State Democratic Committee, was in the
city last night, having returned from the
Tenth District, where he has been fixing
up the fences for Senator Flood. Col.
Button said that he calculated that Mr.
Flood would have from 1,500 to 2,500 ma
J jority over Colonel llub.ird for Congress
iu tho district. He bases his claim upon
a partial canvass o;" the district himself"
and upon reports which have come in
from the chairmen of the various county
and city chairmen. The Colonel wlli leave
this afternoon for the western part of the
district and will remain until the campaign
Cl IAIKMAN CONFIDENT.
Chairman EHyson was very busy at
headquarters yesterday. The long-distance
telephohe ar.d teiegraph wlros were kept
hot communicating with his lLutenants
in different sections ol the State in regard
to the campaign. Every county and city
wants good speakers for the last days
of tne struggle, in order to whoop the
boys up and bring out the lud party
suength for Bryan and th..- Democratic
nommees for Congress. Ali the locaP
committees rely on the charman, and in
the iast days of a great national strug
gie his duties are exceedingly on.rous.
Mr. EHyson keeps cool, however, and tugs
away with his work in the same manner
as if tne campaign had just begun, and
sucks to his former deelarations that all
will ba well on the night of November

SOMETHING IN RESERVE.
The last week of the campaigii in the
j Third District promises to be an interest
ing if not exciiing one.
The Republicans claim that they have
a fighting chance and intimate that they
have "something up their sieeve" to
play at the last moment. Tho Democrats,
of course, expect to re-elect Captain
Lamb by a handsome majority, but they
are not going to permit the grass to grow
under their feet.
The party is well organized. Captain
Lamb will run ahead of Bryan by several
hundred votes. for many Gold Democrats
who will vote for McKinley. wiil sup?
port the Captain.
The Republicans are expecting much
from Hugh Gordon Miller's efforl.s in the
district. He will spend a few djys can
vassing with General Allan.
Just what the. Republicans "have up
their sieeve," is not positively known, but
lt is thought they have iaid plans to poll
such or" the Republican votes as may be
rejected by the judges. This was done in
Jackson Ward in 1SSS. The object of this
proposed scheme is to gather niaterial to
assist General Allan in a contest for Cap?
tain Lamb's seat, proyided the House
shouid be Republican.

him to give or- sell you an old sarnple

enough of one patcern to make something
from it, and the patterns are usuaily very
choice and datnty.
To make the boxes, first obtatn plain

andl cover them rteatly with the wall

paper in the same or contrasting colors,
with sateen, satin or silk. as the. fancy

ribbons and be decked wiih paper or silk
flowers. or be plain. These boxes are dc
signed to hold a great. varicty of things,
candy, flowers, ribbons, shTrt-walsts, gloves
The photograph panels are jus: as pret?
ty. They are made from pasteboard cut
the desired size, two pieces to the panel,
and a heart-shaped or round ajjerture
for the picture to show through. Cover
each panel with paper, then paste Uie
two panels together. leaving a space for
the picture to be slipped through. The bacK
panel, of course, has no aperture. The_
