WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION
The fourth quarterly meeting of
the fourth division of Santee Asso
ciation which met with Home Branch
church December 8th, 1916, opened
with. singing, "Conic Thou Almighty
King." Mrs. Spinx presided and Mrs.
Henrietta Touchberry conducted the
devotional exercises. Eighth chapter
of second Corrinthians was read,
after which prayer was offered by
Mrs. Touchberry. "Hark! 'Tis the
Shepherd's Voice I Hear," was- then
sung. A reading entitled Christian
Stewardship, was then given us by
Mrs. Mira Broadway, which closed
with these words:
"A call is now sunding for yau and
Not only from nations far over the
But it comes from the lands that lie
at our feet.
It comes from the sinful we meet on
It comes from the homes of want and
It comes to our ears wherever we
Oh! hear the Master is Calling."
Roll call was then responded to
with scripture verses. A modern
knight was then given us by Miss
Flossie Hill. After this reading, Miss
Sallie Jones read the standard of
excellence. A paper entitled," Her
Good Intentions," was then read by
Mrs. E. D. Hodge. "I am Thine, Oh
L.ord," was heartily sung by all of
us. Mrs. M. S. Broadway then had
rs to enjoy a Foreign Missionary
A ppeal from Dr. J. F. Love. After
this appeal a reading by Mrs. Hen
rietta 'Touchberry was then given us.
Iler subject being, "The Love of a
Soul," she said the only thing in the
tuiverse that is like God is the soul,
and he that loves the beautiful in
God, loves the beautiful in the soul."
Nothing but love can properly esti
mate the value of a soul, and meet
the responsibility of saving a soul.
Hence, if it were not for love empty
hinded we would go to our Master.
"More Love to Thee" was sung after
which we were dismissed for the
noontide hour by Mrs. Minis. After
enjoying a delightful social hour and
huh we then assembled for the re
maining of our program. Devotional
exercises being conducted by Mrs.
Spinx. "We'll Work 'Till Jesus
Comes" was sung after which the
twentieth chapter of Matthew's was
read. After prayer by Mrs. White
we then enjoyed a missionary play by
the Graham ladies. Mrs. Scarborough
talked to us about apportionments,
after which she explained the circle
plans in churches. She said that
missionary societies were composed
of women who are working for the
Master, and that women who coope
rated would accomplish much. There
can be only one society in a church
hut several circles. The circles in
clude every one in the church working
for .Jesus. A fter Mrs. Scarborough's
talk collection amounting to $2.70 was
akenm. Our meeting then closed with
prayer, hoping to meet with Dilud
Icy's church the first Thursday in

GERMANS S'I'lL AFTE'R
RUMANIANS IN FLIGHT
l'ursuit on Slightly Checked by Bad
Berlin, Monday, Decc. 11 .--Via Lon
don, Dec. 1 2.-The A ustro-German
pursuit of the Rumanians has been
only slightly checckedl by the snow,
rain anwl generally bad weather of the
past twenty- four hours.
The. Tleutonic armies are already
far to the eastwvard of Bucharest, but
their exact position are being care
fully concealed so that the scattered
bandIs of Rumanians in the mnoun
tains north and northwest may not
learn of their location and thereby
avoidl app~arently inevitable capture.
The adlvance has been so great that
the Russo-Rumanian line runs almost
due north and south and even local
s.:ccesses by the Rumanians to the
northwvard would be able to accom
plish a slight bending in of the line,
while the Russian left flank on the
Seret line appears to be endangered.
In German quarters not the slight
est anxiety is expressed at the activ
ity of Gen. Sarrail, In Macedonia,
which is accounted purely politial as
otherwise his efforts would not be
made in the Monastir region but to
the eastward, where the distance to
Rumanria is not quito so great.

The total losses of the Rumanians
in all sections since the beginning of
the war to date, are estimated at
150,000 prisoners, 250,000 men illed or
wounded and 600 cannons, or the
equipment of four to five army corps.
The strength of the remaining Ru
manian artillery, in consequence is
reckoned at nearly nijl and the
strength of the army at even less
than that of the Serbian forces which
reached Greece after the retreat last
The Austro-German forces in their
advance were able to overtake and set
free 800 civilians who had been in
terned in Bucharest and were being
transported eastward. Likewise they
are daily finding more concealed
stores of grain and other supplies,
