hour, led by Mrs. D. B. Wells, prin
cipal of Westminster seminary. Fort

Motherhood of God." Hymn 93 was
sung by the congregation. Prayer
was onerea oy Airs, j.rownridge, 01
Chicago. Then came the sjnodical
reports. Miss Stewart, of Chicago,
gave tne report lor Montana. The
carrying on of the work in this seo
tion is very difficult, owing to the
great distances which must be trav
eled between towns, bat the out
look was very encouraging. Miaa
Addie Halle, of Omaha, read the Ne
braska report, which, showed that in
some portions of the state woman's
societies had never been heard of,
and it was felt that foreign mission
ary work was being done on borne
missionary ground.. There was an
increase of five societies during the
rear. One of the districts in Nebraska
that had been helped during tne fail
ure of crops a few years ago, last
season sent a carload of corn
to India. Mrs. Shell read the North
Dakota report. The synod of this
state has united in the organization
of work for home and foreign mis
sions. Four presbyteries were re
ported, and it is hoped that a great
advance win be made in tne coming
vear. Miss Steward read the South
Dakota report. The year rpened
hopefully by the sending of Miss
Marie Chase to Korea. The first
gathered shea! from the North Da
kota syno-1 enlisted the hearts
and interests of the home workers,
The southern presbytery reports that
mere is much to encourage toe
work, owicg to the personal sacrifice
made by many in carrviog oa the
work. There are 20 Y. P. S. C. E
and four bands in the state. Miss
Fannie Cleland, of Roek Island, read
the Utah report. Utah has four aux
iliaries anl three bands, with
membership of 83, and nine Sunday
schools have identified . Christian
Endeavor societies with the board
of the church. Mrs. Collins,
of Milwaukee, read the report
from Wisconsin. It showed that
there has been a great in
crease in enthusiasm and financial
aid. Utah and Montana are the only
states not represented at the board
meeting. Hymn 666 "Soldiers
Christ Arise" was sun?, and remarks
were made by Dr. Gray, editor of the
Interior, who is here to report the
meeting for the board.

The address on Korea was given
by Miss Susan Doty, of Seol. When
Miss Doty came to America on her
furlough the native christians of her
field sent this message: "In the grace
of Christ, abound in peace." Miss
Doty ie ported that the number of
girls1 boarding achoola in Korea is
35; the organisation of these schools
has been very laborious, and began
with orphans 01 3 years 01 age, dm
during the last year the number of
christian homes represented in the
school of which she has control is
17. the youngest age of the acholars
being 8 years. In a public exhibi
tion held last -year in the girls'
school there were examinations in
the old testament, in the life of
Christ, grammar, arithmetic, map
drawing, and sewing. In these
schools the girls do all the house
work. The purpose of the schools
is to send these girls forth full of the
knowledge of God's word, hope in
Christ, and to show by their lives
what Christianity has done tor them
cd that education shall broaden
both their intel.ect and their life
Singing was not known amoDg the
Korean women till the use 01 the
gospel was introduced in their midst.
Polygamy, she said, was universally
practiced, but deprt cited oy tne gov
ernment and all classes. Miss Doty
said the missionaries hoped to over
come the practice of early marriage
ihroogh educational teachings. &ne
said I'icg Tang is the most wicked
place in all the world, ixraham L.ee,
formerly of tMscity, is located there.
Tne church of which Mr. Lee has
charge has been enlarged four times
and increased in size il times since
he has been stationed at that point
It is impossible to further enlarge it
and Mr. Lee has purchased a build
ing in the city at which the women
are to worship.
A duet was sung, by Mrs. siaasiee
and Miss Dorrance, after which fol
lowed a discussion on young people's
hour, lead by Mrs. J. M. Conner, 01
Chicago. Mrs. Connor, of Wabash,
lnd , spoke on tbe subject "Lame
Children Shall Lead Them.1' the
thought of the paper being that the
work of the Christian bndeavor so
cieties shall be the impressing of the
children with the desire of doing
for others and not living for them-
selves alone. Miss Kate Stisw. in
charge of the girls' school at Kanaz
awa, Japan, made a brief address.
outlining the work in that country and
showed that the conditions for carry
ing on the work were very favorable,
bva a. rieid, M. D., followed, and
said that there were any number of
young people willing to take up the
work 11 the means were provided.
Mrs. Coulter closed the discussion
with a very interesting paper in
which she bronght up the question
"Is there a need and a place for the
young woman's society?" She Bug
gested these reasons against forming
young ceiples societies: muiu
plicity ol organizations, the already
full and busy lives of our youcg
women in school, office, store and
society; the old reason which meets
the woman's societies as well Jack of
interest. She said that a series ol
q ass' ions will often develop items
which are invariably overlooked.
I he r.eports from foreign secre
taries were read. Mrs. V. S Candee
read those of Africa and Syria, Mex
ico and Guatemala, and Miss M. P.
Halsey those of India and Persia.

tion first joining in singing Go La
