The main thetne of the afternoon

was opened for discussion with a paper
by Mrs. C. W. Hawes on that subject
The discussion was then taken up
with the "Work Accomplished by Our
Women" as the subject, papers being
read by Mrs. C. L. Lutes of the First
Methodist church, Mrs. Henry Arndt
of the Presbyterian church, Mrs. R.
G. Summers from the Baptist church,
Miss Ralston from the United Pres
byterian church and Mrs. F. A. Graves
from the Memorial Christian church.
The discussion proved both interest
ing and very instructive.
Addreaa by Mr. I.lnilnny.
The principal address of the after
noon was given by Mrs. Catherine F.
Lindsay, who has been president of
the Woman's Missionary Social union
of Springfield for 1C years and has
been intimately connected with the
society since its organization IS years
ago. Mrs. Lindsay is an eloquent and
gifted speaker and impressed her
hearers with her earnestness. Shel
took as her subject "lona," which is j
the name of an island off the coast
of England and from which place one
of the -very first missionaries ever
sent out, Columbia by name,1 came'
from, Mrs. Lindsay spoke of woman's
work in the church as well as in the
home and pointed out the responsibil
ity and importance of women looking
to the smaller things in life, those
things which mean so much and are
so important to the life of the indi
vidual and nation but which seem
small and insignificant. -Women arc
generally willing and anxious to un
dertake those things n which they
can see where great good can be ac
complished but are reluctant to take
up things from small beginnings, but
which nevertheless develop great re
sponsibility and good eventually. She
also spoke of the work being carried
on in the organization of which she
is president and which has represen
tatives, from 50 different church . or
ganizations in Springfield.
At the close of the afternoon ses
sion the ladies of the United Presby
terian church served a nice supper to
the ladies who remained for the even
ing program and the intervening hour
was devoted to furthering the social
relations of the members.
"The L'nbaptlsed Arm."
. The evening program was opened
with devotionals conducted by Rev.
Marion Humphreys and a song by the
chojr. . Miss Florabell Patterson, pro
fessor of history at Monmouth college.
was the speaker of the evening, tak
ing as her subject "The TJnbaptisted
Arm." Miss Patterson told of a colony
of people anxious to go to a new .coun
try where they were to be taken on
condition that they were baptised au.1
became working Christians. At the
time of their baptism when the bodies
were immersed they held up their
right arm in order that they with that
arm might do as they pleased, und
carry on any work, whether Christian
or not. The body was thus only part
ly consecrated to the work laid out
for them. Miss Patterson carried out
this thought in reference to work in
the church, where the members are
willing to give only that service
which they can give without any sac
rifice. They will give willingly a
small part of those powers of the
church, namely money, young people,
property and equipment, patrimony
and prayer, but as those who left the
right arm unbaptized, are unwilling to

. S. S. S. is the best treatment for Catarrh because t is a perfect blood
purifier. It is the only medicine that is able to get down into the circula
tion and entirely remove the catarrhal matter and impurities "which produce
the trouble. As long as the mucous membranes and tissues are kept inflamed
and irritated by this impure and infected condition of the blood Catarrh will
remain. Its disagreeable and dangerous symptoms, of ringing noises in the
ears, ' mucus dropping back into the throat, headaches, watery eyes, difficult
breathing, and even stomach disorders and weakened health, cannot be perma
nently relieved until the blood is purified.' Nothing equals S. S. SI for thi3
purpose. It goes down to the very root of the trouble, and removes every
particle of the catarrhal matter from the blood and enriches this vital fluid so
that all the mucons surfaces are supplied with nutritive, healthful qualities, in
stead of being constantly irritated and inflamed by impurities in the circula
tion. Then, the symptoms begin to pass away and when S. S. S. has entirely
purified the blood. Catarrh is permanently cured and the general health
greatly built up.- ' Book on Catarrh and any medical advice desired sent free
