next convention, gathered in the hall
and gave yells and sang songs.
Foremost in the shouting were the
four cities that were fighting for the
next convention: Kansas City, Minne
apolis, Los Angeles and Seattle.
They stood upon their chairs and with
their banners waiving far above their
heads, they good naturedly shouted
back at each other.
As each delegation gathered and
took their seats they displayed paste
board signs bearing the name of their
state and these they held high in the
air with the name facing the Ilotfman
street entrance, so that all stragglers
would know where to go.
Dr. 1Hill said, 'someone once said
that the C. E. society was dead, but if
one had seen this remarkable demon
stration before himn, there must have
been a, reurection. '
On the front of the platform were
more than lifty chairs heaped high
with great bundles of envelopes. Each
chair was for a state, territory or pro
vince. in the envelopes were the di
plomas given by the Unites Society to
the societies for successful work.
As each state was called out a dele
gate was sent forward. When all had
assembled on the platform a hymn was
sung and the delegates carried their
pamphlet, back to their delegations.
After the distribution of the pamph
lets, Dr. Hill announced the present
ation of penants and honorable men
tion for the local unions for a gain in
number of societies of at least 10 per
As the states were called there were
some unusual demonstrations. In ev
ery delegation, by this time, a banner
or penant of some kind had been erect
ed and as the name of each state was
called outthe whole delegation cheered,
their pennant was waived and the
leader came forward and received the
recognition leatlets to which each state
Ohio lead every state and county in
the world in the gain made since No
vember 1902. 753 new societies had
been added to that state.
The great demonstration came, how
ever, when Mr. Vagt made the pre
sentation of the silken banners which
were won by those states which have
made a gain of 10 per cent and more
in their membership since November
Mr. Jacobs announced that he had
to leave the city at noon and that he
would sing another solo before de
parting. While silence reigned, he
sang a hymn that illustrated the pur
pose of the meeting and the convention
joined in the chorus.
Mr. Vogt then resumed the distribu
tion of the banners, after which three
rousing cheers for Dr. Clark were giv
en and the morning session was con

left from the morning and p)resided at

advocate, on being introduced, showed

thirty six yards long from the England
newspapers, for the week before Christ
mas and the first week of January, con
taining 3:1290 crimes, murders, suicides,
caused ly drink in those two weeks.
Commissioner McFarland, who spoke
on the "responsibility of public opin
ion," expressed pleasure at the pros
pect of the Christian Endeavor mem
orial building and suggested that it be
located at Washington. Mr. McFar
land had a fine voice for speaking but
another shower came up and he had to
wait as he could not be heard. The
choir sang a number lof pieces while
waiting for Mr. McFarland and when
he resumed he said that it was the
most restful speech he had ever deliv
ered and he wished he might have the
convention and Mr. Foster at hand to
sing in the middle of all his speeches
as he thought they would be more ef
fectual. This was truly a christian
citizenship session and worthy torank
with what had preceeded.
Last evening of convention.-The
supreme hour of the superlative con
vention had arrived. It was fitting
that at this session Treasurer Shaw
should again preside.
First came a song service led by
Mr. Foster, the vast audience uniting
with the choir in flooding the hall
with "Onward Christian Soldiers and
Mr. Shaw annonnead a special mes
sage from Dr. Clark and Secretary
Vogt read it. A tender and touching
prayer was then offered by Vice Pres
ident Grose for the speedy recovery
of Dr. Clark. Mr. Vogt asked that
no delegation give their yells and that
they kindly turn down their state
signs. Mr. Baer then read Dr.
Clark's message, and then at his sug
gestion the audience arose and sang
the long-meter Doxology.
Mdr. Shaw then took the stand and
introduced some features not on the
"Have you ever known such a con
vention as this? This convention to
me is the superlative convention.
Baltimore has been great in every
thing. I never saw rain wetter or
heat that was hotter; even the thunder
is muffled by your applause and the
lightning iQ dimmed by the brilliancy
of these meetings. Think of it! Here
is a hall one-third larger than any
other hall or tent in which any other
convention was ever held. Think of
the crowds that have been here and of
the enthusiasm that has been expressed:
not momentary enthusiasm, but a sol
id week of it, and think of those re
sponsible for it. Think of the com
mittee of 1905. They are the people
who ran the machine without a jar."
At this the committee of 1905, was
introduced by Mr. Atwood, the chair
mian. He spoke in words of highest
praise of the work of the sub-commit
tess and the scores who contributed
their part toward the achievement.
Then the musical directors were
called for Messrs. Harris, Bonner and
Foster (Mr. Jacobs had returned home.)
One of the prettiest impromptu inci
dents now occured, due to Mr. Foster's
quick wit. It was not the intention of
Mr. Foster and Mr. Bonner to come
forward, but a demand arose that
could not be withstood; then at the
suggestion of Mr. Foster the incident
was contrived which was one of the
happiest of the convention:
Led by Mr. Bonner, of London. the
convention chorus sang "God Save
the King," the national hymn of Great
Britain. Led by Mr. Foster they sang
"My Country 'Tis of Thee." Follow
ing this and amidst the most intense
enthusiasm, the two leaders, one of
Washington, the other of London, to
gether led the assemblage in "Blest be
the tie that binds." Mr. Bonner
waived an American flag while Mr.
foster waived the flag of England: both
then turned and shaking hands crossed
llags while the chorus sang.
Then came the eagerly awaited roll
call. As the states were called some
arose and santr their state song, while
others gave a verse of scripture.
Louisiana said ''Christ for Louis
iana," as Mr. Shaw had asked the
delegates to cut it as short as possi
After the roll call of states Mr. Baer
made the closing remarks, saying:
"Now as we leave these doors to go
from the best convention the C. E. has
ever had, let us remember that the
power of it will largely depend upon
our work and our spirit. Let us wait
before God in silence for his benedic
tion and let the last words be His."
After a moment of quiet we caught up
our parting him, "God be with you
'till we meet again" and carried it in
to the streets of Baltimore and even to
the street cars.
The Twenty-Second International
Christian Endeavor Convention was
ended. Geo. H. Maul, delegate.

BLACK POWDER SHELLS
- The "Nublack" is a grand good shell;
good in construction, good because it is
primed with a quick and sure primer, and
good because carefully and accurately
loaded with the best brands of powder
and shot. It is a favorite among hunters
and other users of black powder shells on
account of its uniform shooting, evenness
of pattern and strength to withstand
reloading. A trial will prove its excellence.
