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.
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.
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
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
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.
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. Hyde, from western Tur
key; Miss Elizabeth B. Huntington
and Miss Katherine B. Fraser, from
eastern Turkey; Miss Mary S. Morrill,
from north China; Dr. Mary A. Hol
brook and Miss Frances E. Griswold,
from Japan; Misss Annie E. Abell, from
Micronesia. Of those who were with
us Miss Ellen M. Stone, from Bul
garia; Miss Cornelia S. Bartlett, from
western Turkey; Miss Ellen M. Pierce,
from central Turkey; Mrs. C. R. Allen,
Miss Annie T. Allen (assistant). Miss

We report a total of $107,016.30 in
contributions;- a gain of $1,744.13. In
legacies a loss of $2,658.15. The total
receipts, including interest, have been

REPORT OF JUNIOR WORK.
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.

CATARRH OF THE STOMACH.
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
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.
Send for little book mailed free on
stomach troubles, by addressing Stu
art Co., Marshall, Mich. The tablets
can be found at all drug stores.

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
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

ed entirely of Germans, either by birth
or descent, will celebrate the tenth an
niversary of the order also this evening

the close of the meeting.
On Monday evening next Beacon

anniversary of the order in its lodge
room, No. 400 State street. The princi
pal speakers of the evening will be Rev.

WORCESTER CYCLE COMPANY.
Hearing on the Application for the Ap
pointment of a Trustee.
Middletown, Nov. 4. 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
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
