An invitation was accepted, by the board to hold the thirty-first anniver sary at Springfield, Mass. Following are the reports presented at the anniversary: The report of the home department was presented by Its secretary, Miss A. B. Childs of Boston, in Dart as follows: The year 1897 closes thirty years of organized labor for women in mission lands by Congregational women in the United States. .Thirty years ago this organized labor was a new experiment, questioned by friends, criticised by foes, doubted by the brethren in the churches, thoroughly believed in by a few women who had faith in their Lord and in His command to disciple the nations, and who had the courage of their convictions. The Woman's Board of Missions, the small plant of thirty years ago; has grown to be a tree, and to-day some of our greatest perils are the perils of success. The receipts for the first year were $5,033.13. The largest amount received in any year was $142,787.30 in 1892. The average yearly income for the first ten years was about $45,400; for the sec ond decade, $109,978; for the third, $125,624.76. Total amount for the thirty years, $2,809,956.67. The number of mis sionaries supported has grown from 7 to 128, 237 having been under our care since the beginning. Our Bible women, from 11 to 162; boarding schools, from 1 to 33; day schools, from none to 255; and the sum of money put into school buildings and homes is, in the aggre gate, about $300,000. ORGANIZATIONS. There are now connected with the board twenty-three branches, compris ing about 1,100, senior auxiliary socie ties, with an estimated membership of over 40,000 ; 598 Junior auxiliaries and mission circles, besides cradle rolls for which 5,000 membership cards have been given out; also a large number of contributing societies of T. P. S. C. E., King's Daughters and Sunday schools. FIELD SECRETARY. TheVork of our field secretary, Miss Kyle, grows in Importance year by year. Four meetings, held in as many days, in the New York branch, result ed in three new auxiliaries, while a number of new contributing societies among young people bear witness to a growing interest. PERIODICALS. More and more we are convinced that one of the very best methods of pro moting interest in missions is the per sistent, untiring effort to increase the circulation of missionary intelligence. That member of a Massachusetts aux iliary who has secured seventy-four subscribers the past year has done a noble work for missions. The Missionary Dayspring circula tion is 9,111 a gain of nearly a thou sand. LEAFLETS. The monthly leaflets supplementary to - the topics for auxiliary meetings given in Life and Light, now have an edition of 1,800. Thirteen other leaflets have been issued. The prayer calen dars for 1898, now ready, have the at traction of pictures of some mission aries and native workers. The circula tion library in the board rooms, Bos ton, continues to prove a most valua ble adjunct to our work. MISSIONARIES. Ten of our missionaries have come to this country during the year in pur suit of rest and health. They are Mrs. Ellen R. Baird, from Bulgaria; Mrs. Catherine Parsons, Mrs. F. M. Newell, Miss Susan C.

The report of Junior work was made by its secretary, Miss Kate G. Lam son of Boston, in part as follows: Ten thousand mite boxes have been circulated among the children. A letter had been issued quarterly, and sent to children's societies at a subscription price of ten cents a yean Two thou sand copies of our yearly appeal to Christian Endeavor societies have been circulated. A leaflet giving a simple statement of what the woman's boards are, and why they look to Endeavorers for help, has been prepared In connec tion with the board of the Pacific. Over two thousand pages have been dupli cated, giving to Endeavor societies cop ies of the letters ffom their missiona ries and the fields in which we are es pecially trying to enlist their Interest. Our Daughters of the Convent in crease steadily in numbers, twenty-one hundred now being enrolled. Perhaps no part of our work has been so uni versally progressive as the cradle roll, which is reported as being successfully carried on in nineteen branches. Ral lies of young people and children are becoming general throughout our branches, and are found to be a power ful factor in the year's work. Forty-one Junior auxiliaries and mis sion circles have been organized, six teen co-operative societies gained.mak ing a total gain of thirty-five. Receipts for the past twelve months show some suggestive facts. From Junior auxil iaries we have received $882.30 less than last year; from Mission circles, $227.06 less; from Christian Endeavor societies, $767.84 less; from Junior Endeavor, $22.09 more; from cradle rolls, $207.61 more; from Sunday schools, $1,123.96 less than last year. What Inference shall we draw from these figures? They would seem to Indicate that our young people, if giving as largely as in other years, are doing so through channels of their own choice, forgetting to some extent, the right which our woman's board has to look to them for support. It would also seem that the children have been more loyal than their elders among our Junior forces, and are gain ing upon the work of other years. STATE SPIRITUAL ASSOCIATION. Poquonock, Nov. 4.

A Plciisunt, Simple, but Safe and Ef fectual Ouro for It. Catarrh of the stomach has long been considered the next thing to incurable. The usual symptoms are a full or bloat ing sensation after eating, accompa nied sometimes with sour or watery risings, a formation of gases, causing pressure on the heart and lungs, and difficult breathing; headaches, fickle appetite, nervousness, and a general played out, languid feeling. There is often a, foul taste in the mouth, coated tongue, and it the inte rior of the stomach could be seen it would show a slimy, inflamed condition. The cure for this common and ob stinate trouble is found in a treatment which causes the food to be readily, thoroughly digested, before it has time to ferment and irritate the delicate mu cous surface of the stomach. To se cure a prompt and healthy digestion is the one necessary thing to do, and when normal digestion is secured the catarrhal condition will have disap peared. According to Dr. Harlandson the safest and best treatment is to use af ter each meal a tablet composed of Diastase, Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nux, Golden Seal dnd fruit acids. These tablets can now be found at all drug stores under the name of Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets, and not being a patent medicine can be used with perfect safety and assurance that healthy ap petite and thorough digestion will fol low their regular use after meals. Mr. N. J. Booher of 2710 Dearborn street, Chicago, 111., writes: "Catarrh is a local condition, resulting from a neglected cold In the head, whereby the lining membrane of the nose be comes inflamed; and the poisonous dis charge therefrom, passing backward into the throat, reaches the stomach, thus producing catarrh of the stomach. Medical authorities prescribed for me for three years for catarrh of stomach without cure; but to-day I am the hap piest of men after using only one box of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I can not find appropriate words to express my good feeling. I have found flesh, appetite, and sound rest from their use." Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the safest preparation as well as the sim plest and most convenient remedy for any form of indigestion, catarrh of sto mach, biliousness sour stomach, heart burn, and bloating after meals.

TENTH ANNIVERSARY. New England Order of Protection Elm Tree's Celebration This Evening Mozart Lodge Also Celebrates. Ten years ago the New England Or der of Protection was organized in Bos ton. The growth of the order, especial ly during the past five years, has been phenomenal. In this city, where so many fraternal orders have gained a foothold, the growth of no other fra ternal order can compare with that of the New England Order of Protection. This is the natural result f the eco nomical management of the organiza tion, the care taken in the admission of applicants and the loyalty of Its members. Five years ago there were only three lodges of the order in this city, with a combined membership of less than three hundred. During the past five years six lodges of the New England order were instituted here. The nine lodges of the order at present in New Haven have a combined membership of about twenty-three hundred, and the members carry insurance in this organ ization amounting to between four and a half and five millions of dollars. The decennial of the order will be celebrated throughout the New England states with great fervor. In Boston the lodges of that city and vicinity will have a grand gathering in Music hall on the 12th inst., which will be address ed by Supreme Warden L. P. Deming and other noted celebrities of the or 'cter. In this city the first celebration of the occasion will take place this evening under the auspices of Elm Tree and Queen of Elms lodges in the A. O. U. W. hall, No. 139 Orange street. The committee has arranged a musical and literary programme of real merit, the speakers of the evening being Grand Warden J. B. Weiant of New Britain, Grand Vice Warden C. S. Chaffee of Derby, Grand Treasurer F. M. Drew of Ansonia and Past Warden Chapln, deputy of Elm Tree. Grand Secretary F. D. Grinnell will preside and will give a short history of Elm Tree lodge. At the close of the meeting there will be dancing, during which time refresh ments will be served in the banquet room. Mozart lodge No. 193, a lodge compos ed entirely of Germans, either by birth or descent, will celebrate the tenth an niversary of the order also this evening by an entertainment in Turn hall. There will be several prominent speak ers, and refreshments will be served at the close of the meeting. On Monday evening next Beacon lodge No. 69 will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the order in its lodge room, No. 400 State street. The princi pal speakers of the evening will be Rev. O. J.

Decision was re served by Judge Davis in the probate court this afternoon on the application of the general creditors of the Worces ter Cycle Manufacturing company for the appointment of C. C. Goodrich of the Hartford and New York Transport ation company as trustee.- Attorney Buekland of New Haven, who repre sented the Central Trust company, the mortgagee of the bondholders, asked for the appointment of Frank Sullivan Smith, the present receiver, as trustee. Attorney Buekland claimed the compa ny had $523,000 of property, against which there was a mortgage of $85,000 on the plant here and $84,000 on the plant in Worcester, Mass.; bonds to the amount of $325,000, secured by the Trust company's mortgage, and $200,000 unse cured debts. Objections were raised to Mr. Smith acting in the dual capacity of receiver and trustee on the ground that he al ready represented the bondholders. The general creditors maintained that the mortgage to the Central Trust compa ny does not cover goods manufactured or in process of manufacture, or ma chinery purchased since the mortgage was given. It is understood that if Mr. Goodrich is appointed trustee the validity of the mortgage will be tested in the courts. There are thirty-two creditors in Con necticut, whose claims aggregate over $50,000, while the largest creditor out side the state is the Shelby Tube com pany of Shelby, Ohio.
