The missionary fields of China and
Africa furnished the speakers for the
women's meeting1 held yesterday after
noon in the Presbyterian church. Great
interest was manifested by the audi
ence, and the missionaries were be
Eeiffed at the close of the service by
those who -wished to grasp their hands
and congratulate them.
Urs. Hei Hale presided. Rev. C. Ii
Overstreet 'led In prayer, and the choir
of the church provided the music.
The first speaker was Mrs. "W. K.
Hotchkiss, -who works with her husband
in British East Africa under the aus
pices of the Friends' church. Their
mission is industrial in character, and
Krs. Eechkiss's -work is varied, ranging-
from the teaching of the common
school branches to training house ser
vants, and including nursing and med
ical work as -well as the holding of gos
pel meetings among the women and
The mission is in the 'interior, 60 miles
from Victoria Nyanza and only 13 miles
from the equator. But they do not
suffer from the heat, as they are at an
altitude of 7550 feet. A railroad, huilt
by the English government when there
was -no prospect of its ever amounting
to anything-, takes them 516 miles into
the country. From there they go by
foot, over trails so narrow and through
gTass so deep that it takes them six
weeks to go a very few miles.
After showing the need of the work
And the seeming impossibility of its
accomplishment, a concrete example
was given to show the change that has
een brought about.
3Irs. Parker SpeHkw.
Mrs. A. P. Parker, who was the sec
ond speaker on the program, is from
Shanghai and is engaged in school and
evangelistic work. She, too, dealt in
facts and not theories, and gave .exam
ples to show what work was actually
being accomplished. She introduced her
audience to a similar meeting of women
in the Orient, at which meetings papers
were read, Bible readings given, and dis
cussions had just as would be done in
this country. The social intercourse
means much to these women, as they
never had any social life until Chris
tianity gave it to them. Home and love
were also unknown to them.
The El Paso women were also intro
duced to some of these women who
proved very interesting one a Bible

met on the missionary field and how
these are overcome.

What is the laymen's missionary
As decribed by J. Campbell White, the
man behind the movement, in a pamphiet
issued by the general committee, the
movement is "an Inspiration, not an ad
ministration." No money Is asked or
collected except as a registration fee
for the convention, this fee being 1
which wiil be used to defray the ex
penses of the convention. No mission
aries are to be sent out and no sub
scriptions taken. The whole idea is to
cooperate with the regular missionary
agencies of the different protectant
churches in the enlargement of their
Not one cent is to be diverted from
the missionary offerings. In fact the
central purpose of the movement is to
increase these contributions to a sum
in keeping with tne size and wealth of
the churches in the larger cities. No
societies are organized, trie only organi
zation being a committee in each con
pregation to assist the pastor in tne
missionary work of the church. The
movement has no organization except a
general working committee. Its chief
purpose is the presentation of an ade
quate missionary policy to influential
groups of men and. the explanation of
methods of missionary finance which
have been found to be the most effect

The laymen's missionary movement Is
the third of the missionary movements
in this country. The first was the fa
mous Haystack meeting at which the
first real foreign missionary plan was
formulated. The second was the stu
dent's volunteer -movement and the third
the laymen's movement.
Th inspiration for the resent move
ment was a meeting in Washington of
these student volunteers four years ago.
The 100th anniversary of the Haystack
prayer meeting which was held in New
York gave an opportunity to test the
idea and the movement. Including the
whole country and eventually the civ
ilized world in its scope resultted.
The national campaign includes con
ventions similar to the one in progress
here In 75 of the leading cities of the
country. At these meetings it is ex
pected to have 100,000 men enrol as dele
gates to these conventions. The move
ment will culminate In a national mis
sionary congress In Chicago, May 3.
All churches will be represented and it
will be the first of the kind ever held
in this country.
Following this Chicago meeting there
will be a world missionary conference in
Edinburgh, Scotland. The campaign
now In progress has been planned with
this in view and will offer valuable as
sistance to the world conference as a
result of the .national meeting being held
in this country.

The members of the Westminster
Presbyterian church met with the First
Presbyterian church for the 11 oclock
services Sunday. Rev. "D. Clay Lilly,
special field secretary of the Laymen's
Missionary movement, addressed the
congregation. "Go into all the world,
and preach the gospel to every crea
ture," was his text.
Ho said: "The Missionary movement
is one of the grandest and noblest there
is. We are not only carrying the gos

savages, so to speak, but are minister

The Fate of the Orphan.
"It makes my heart shiver to think
of what becomes of an orphan in those
heathen countries. There is no thought
given to the weak, and those unable to
take care of themselves are worse off
than if they were dead. The suffering
and want is tremendous, Tilth no med
ical facilities to alleviate it. The poor,
helpless mortals still cling to their be

who know nothing whatever of drugs
or medicines. They will come with
their magic sticks, usually a piece of
polished ebony, and by rubbing it In
voke the spirits, by concantations and
signs, to release the sufferer from the
evil one. And in many instances, they
prescribe some fetich method of tor
ture, that In many cases result fatally.
"Now what we want," continued Rev.
Mr. Lilly, "in addition to establishing
churches and schools, is to establish
hospitals for these people."
Dr. Lilly told in detail of how the
natives of China and other countries
had been benefited by the work of the
In speaking of thedifferent religions,
and religious organizations, he said:
"There were three classes of religion
first, Christianity, or our religion, the
religion that has been instrumental in
bringing about our present status of
civilization; second, the religion of Im-
potency, or Confucianism ana Buddhism, i
two religions practiced for sometime
by the Chinese and Japanese, a religion
that is an execration and a shame to
the laws of God and man; third, the re
ligion of infamy and vice, as practiced
by the Hindus and East Indians. This

Pratt, and Rev. W. R. ltchkiss. Dr.
Mr. Pratt spoke on "Our Share of the
He said: "As we think of this sub
ject we remember we are a part of the

face problems in our own land that are
far from solved. For instance we find
we must feed the fires of our faith if
we are to evangelize the hordes of for- (
eign born that are being dumped upon
us, and who have in large measure
never really heard of our Lord. This
foreign element is making the life of
our great cities, and with the centers
of our population in their hands, we
face the great task of Christianizing
"But looking at the size of the task,
we find with our great body of minis
ters we could evangelize our own
country if it should be set about sys
tematically. With the army of Sunday
school teachers, we could accomplish
this in a single week. But when we
look at the foreign field we find the
size a different matter. Here Ilea, too,
our greatest opportunity because it is
the most unselfish thing before us. We
may be Christianizing our own land for
selfish reasons in part, but attacking
the life on the other side of the world
is certainly no selfish matter.

Where Christianity Is
At the Calvary Baptist church Rev.
H. G. Romig, a missionary to China,
spoke of the need for the evangelization
of that particular field at tne Sunday
morning service of the church. He said
in part: "The church has just begun to
awaken to the task the one great
task which Christ gave to his people,
that is to carry his gospel to tne whole
lost world. We are too big to confine
our attention to our own immediate
neighborhood, or our own land even.
"If we had no other reason for this
undertaking but that of humanity, we
would have reason enough. Our fore
fathers were heathen of the worst sort.
If God had called Paul east Instead of
west, India, Japan and China would
now be sending missionaries to this
western world. But God called him
"There are people who say: 'Why dis
turb the heathen?' They have their re
ligions and are satisfied; why then try
to force Christianity upon them?" One
has but to witness the heathen in his
own land, to see an answer to this
question. For instance, when a highly
educated officer was informed by Mr.
Wood that he had received funds t.o
help the famine stricken people, the of
ficial replied: 'Oh, let the people die.
There are too many of them. Do not
such a people need the philanthropy
"Wherever we can send a man to
preach, there we have converts, and
the converted Chinese give $3 to our
one for the spread of the gospel."
