STUDIES MISSION WORK
Gray Court Missionary Society has De
lightful Week's Program.
Gray Court, May 1.-The Mission
Study class of the Methodist Woman's
Missionary society has just completed
a ,most delightful week's study of the
l!ttle, book "Thirty Studies About
Jesus." I was decided to try the con
test plan having the meetings daily
from four to five o'clock for one week.
Ten ladies bought study books, biti
twenty-four joined the class. Cap
tains were chosen by drawing straws
and the captains chose the rose and
red verbena instead of colors. Three
requirements were made, to be pres
ent, to be on time and to have read
the book at least -by the end of th<
week. Leaders were al))ointed to take
certain pages for each afternoon and
after each leader's remarks on the
subject a round table was conducte
in which most of those present tool
liaart. E tch afternoon the bowegs wer<
v9ry much in evidence.
This little rivhlry awakened muel
insterest and many more took -par
than in our usual studies.
Delicious refreshmeits were servet
just after the study hour on the las
afternoon. Our president had se'vel
as judge and the verbena Aide havini
von most ,points, was - required t
perve lhe'rose side although 'both side
had helped furnish the :freshments.
