door w- thrown open to the
elega:es and visitors, and every one
resent we \vy with the feeling
that no war!e-!iearted people are
to be found ii .r State than live in
this historic t wn.
Mrs. W. L. Wait, the Conference
president, presided, assisted by the
district seeretary, Mrs. J. W. White,
of Newberry. Mrs. White had plan
ned carefully for the meeting, and
only one person who was on duty fail
ed to get to the meeting. With Mrs.
Wait to preside over a meeting for
which thoughtful. preparation has
been made, failure is hardly possible,
and ;o we had a really good meeting.
Every society in the district was rep
resente,' by a delegate and each gave
a good and encouraging report. The
district secretary, in her report, tells
us that the outIook for the advance
ment of the work in the district is
promising. Already, since the close
of the meeting a new society has been
organized at the Grendel mill in
Greenwood; and the secretary has
several urgent invitations to visit
other- points to attempt organization.
Our meeting in Ninety Six made a
pleasant beginning in the reception
given on Friday afternoon, May 14,
at the home of Mrs. R. S. Nichels.
At the first session 'Friday night,
the pastor of the ehurch, Rev. J. A.
Cooke. gave the ladies a cordial wel
come to his church, and throughout
the meeting was ever ready to help
us by his suggestions, wise counsel,
and earnest prayers for the work.
This welcome was followed by one
from the home society, the foreign
society, a representative of the Bap
tist church, and the Presbyteriaa
ehurch. We think we have never
heard more appropriate and altogeth
er delightful addresses of welcome.
Mrs. White responded to all these in
a happy manner. A song and a pray
er, the~n a short talk by Mrs. Wait
concluded tehe evening service.
Saturday morning at 9 :30 the reg
ular business of the meeting was tak
en up, and the reports of delegates
At eleven o'clock Rev. J. C. Roper
was invited to take charge of the
"preacher's hour'' and conduct it.
The session of :Saturday afternoon
completed the reports of societies,
and there were~ two more papers read,
the subject of the first being, "Can
Any Other Organization, or All Com
bined, Take the Place of the Mission
ary Society ?'' Mrs. White read this
good paper, and informal discussion
followed. Later on the program Mrs.
IWooten read a paper on "Woman's
Home Mission Societies as a Means
of Spiritual Development.'' This
-was a very timely paper; for if the
society stands for any one thing more
than another it is the development
of spirituality among its members.
Greenwood was chosen unanimous
ly as the place of meeting for next
year. An earnest prayer was offered
by Mr. Kelly for Mrs. E. S. Herbe,
who is siek, and the sick son of Mrs.
J. W. Kilgore, our corresponding sec-'
retary, who would have been -with us1
but for her son's illness.
On Sunday morning Rev. J. C. Rop
er preahed before the society on
"Inasmuch as ye :have done it unto
the least of these my brethren ye
have done it unto me.''
A testimony meeting and a mass
meeting for the children were held
Sunday afternoon. Mrs. White and'
Miss Barber spoke to the children,
calling their attention to their own
department of the work, the brigade.
The crowning feature of the meet
n the one item on the program most
eagerly anticipated, was the address
by Mrs. Wait on Sunday night.
In true Methodist fashion, we
losed this good meeting with a col
leto. which a.mounted to about
forty dollars. We trust that the in
fluence of the meeting will abide. and'
hat the society will be greatly
rstrengthened by reason of its being

When this card was read it create
a mild sensation and was the talk o
the town for the entire day.
Mr. McMahan's statement of th
facts in his card is as follows: "A

'Put that dog out!' pointing to
