What the Methodists Are Poing.
The great Ecumenical Com'orence
of the Methodist church, "which has
been in session in Toronto for the
past ten days, has been an et'ent of
importance not only to Methodists
but to all Christians and to the
world at large. All branches of
Methodism have been represented
and the sessions have been devoted
to considering methods for bettering
the condition of humanity at large
rather than to the narrow interests
of denominationalism or sectorian
ism. The Baltimore Sun has made
a summary of facts in connection
with thi3 conference which we lind
of interest. The Sun prefaces its
editorial with this:
"Methodism was born in a great
missionary movement, and for more
than a century has gone marching
on its way around the globe. From
the days of Wesley it has observed
the call to go into all the world and
has done its part in bringing nearer
the time when the gospel shall be
preached to every living creature. Its
enlistment of men of every Irnd and
tongue is exemplified in the Ecumen
ical conference now in session in
Toronto. Seventeen countries are
represented by th? 500 delegates, and
the statisticians assert that the va?
rious bodies of Methodists now em
brace 9,000,000 communicants, with
3 9,^00,000 adherents under Metho
The Sun further says that no Pro
testant denomination has shown more
remarkable growth than the Metho
dists, and there appears to be little
ground for pessimism in regard to
Dr. H. K. Carroll pointed out in
an address at Toronto tha: in the
past decade there has been an in
crease of but 437,562, or 15 per cent
compared with 1,216,209, or 33 per
cent, in the decade ending in 1891.
But this is O'.ly relative, and a de
nomination that can show a net in
crease of over 400,000 in ten years
is certainly moving forward.
While conditions in England are
not so favorable as in America ac
cording to the accounts of Rev.
Simpson Johnson and Rev. Henry
Hahh, the reports from the mission
fields are more than gratifying. Rev.
William Williams declares that
"every tenth person in Australia is a
Methodist," while the conferences in
China, Japan, India, Africa, and othr
er mission fields have a membership
of 708,105, 1,444,292 adherents and
458,165 in the Sunday schools.
There are 2,528 missionaries in
actice service, while there are 52,
978 ordained ministers in the home
conferences, the consecrated captains
who lead a vast army of worshippers.
The address of President Lewis,
of the Methodist Protestant. General
conference for a union of all Ameri
can Methodists into one body was
an eloquent plea for a closer co-op<
eration of the 17 separate bodies,
which now bear the Methodist name.
Heretofore neither the efforts for
j 'organic union" nor for consolida1
I tion have been entirely successful.
I But whether the Methodists main
? tain their distinctive organizations
or unite in one immense .body, they
will continue to be one oi the most
virile and energetic divisions of the
Wofford College Prospers.
I The Columbia State says "the let
ting of a contract for a $50,000 dor
mitory for Wofford College striking
j ly illustrates the rapid expansion of
j this admirable institution of learn
ing. The sum that now goes into
the increase of living accommoda
tions for students is perhaps as
large as was that represented by all
the property of the college at the
time that Col. Samuel Dibble, of Or
angeburg, was graduated in the first
class of the institution.
"What is more important and more
commendable is that Wofford has
bravely-lifted its standards. Although
its requirements were already fully
as high as those of most of our col
leges, about two years ago Wofford
cut down the size of its entering
class probably by half by raising the I
entrance requirements. Again the;
entrance classes are as large as they
were before that time. Under the
leadership of Dr. Henry N. Snyder,
the president, Wofford's progress in
scholarship will be consistent and
steady and, meanwhile, the improve
ment in the secondary schools of the
towns and the country is making this
"The number of college men in
South Carolina is probably eight or
ten times as large now a.s it was 20
years ago, and we are swiftly moving
towards that day when the trained
minds of South Carolina will be num
bered by the tens of thousands." The
Spartanburg Herald says "every word
of the above is true and well de
served. Gaining in equipment,
climbing in standard, growing in
numbers, Wofford College i3 proving
equal to its mission." Many of Or
angeburg's sons have graduated at
Wofford, and she now has twenty-five
of her boys in the differert classes of
the old College.
Cotton Crop Is Not Large.
Mr. Theodore H. Price, the cot
ton man of New York, who is now
perfecting a cotton picker that those
who have seen at work says will be
a success, seems to be very much in
terested in any movement that will
help the farmer get a better price
for his cotton. In an interview with
a reporter of the Charlotte Observer
Mr. Price said he had just come from
Texas when he had been for the past
two months and that he was greatly
impressed with the. fact that the
year's cotton crop has been exagger
ated. He says the unprecedented
opening of the bolls has thrown the
planters into a panic more or less to
sell and the result is that there has
occurred a consequent depression in
the price to a point where it is act
ually below the cost O'i production.
Mr. Price went on to say that he be
lieves that the condition at present
existing is oppressive a.:.d unjust to
a degree that is almost cruel. Gov
ernor Colquitt, of Texas, has called
a convention of the Governots of the
cotton States to be held at New Or
leans on the 23d of October to con
sider ways and means for advert
ing further any necessary deprecia
tion in the value of the South's chief
product. It is to be hoped says Mr.
Price that, the meeting -will result
in something more than the passage
of a lot of resolutions adjuring tbe
farmers to hold their cotton. At this
time of the year the farmers cnnnot
hold their cotton.

Pendergrass, Ga.?Mrs. Delia Long,
of this place, in a recent letter, says:
"For five or :.Ix years, I suffered agon
ies with womanly troubles.
Often, I couldn't sit up more than a
few minutes at a time, and if I stood
on my feet long, I would faint.
I took Cardui, and it helped me Im
mediately. Now, I can do my work all
the time, and don't suffer like I did."
Take Cardui when you feel 111 In any
way?weak, tired, miserable, or under
the weather. Cardui is a strength
building tonic medicine for women.
It has been found to relieve pain and
distress caused by womanly troubles,
and is an excellent medicine to have on
hand at all times.
Cardui acts on the womanly consti
tution, building up womanly strength,
toning up the nerves, and regulating
the womanly organs.
Its half century of success Is due to
merit. It has done good to thousands.
Will you try it? It may be just what
you n^ed. Ask your druggist about |
