State Fair. The dates announced for the state fair at Pontiau are September 22 to 2t inclu sive. The management informs us thut matters never looked more promising for a successful fair than they do this year. The large attendance and success of the fair of 1901 has emphasized the im portance of this institution to the agri cultural and industrial interests of the state. The state fair is thoroughly representative of the industrial arts, live stock, agriculture, horticulture and abounds in entertaining and instructive features. There will be the usual trot ing and pacing races, and as a special feature several fire department teams from cities of the state will have races on the track. Among the special attrac tions this year will be the fish exhibit, by the Michigan Fish Oommishion. The Agricultural College and Experiment Station exhibit. The exhibit of agri cultural products from the Upper Penin tula, and the couuty exhibits of fruit and vegetables. Senator Earle's good roads train will build a sample Btone road on the fair grounds during the fair. Noted speak ers will be in attendance and instruction will be given in the art of scientific road building. Special prizes are offered for the nearest guess of pa'd attendance at the fair, to be made on the grouud during the fair. The usual low rates have been made on the railroads, and our readers will do well to make ar r&ngements to attend the fair this year.

To the Adveotlsts lo Camo- Wednesday, September 27, the dele gates to the annual couferenoe listened to the address of Presideut (Jowell.who reviewed the year's work in the confer ence sut stantially as follows ; Several laborers have been called to rest during the year, among them being Elder W. H. Talconer, Elder H. D. Day and Elder 11. M. Keiiuyon. Eighto chuiches, with an aggregate membership of 231, have been organized dorlug the year. The following laborers have bceu sent to other fields and are being supported by this conference : El der ityrou Hagle in Keutuckey ; Clifford Howell in Tennessee River Conference; Elder R. W. Muusou in Sumatra, East Indies (his income in this field is lf00 which he is using to carry forward the gospel); Elder Eugene Lelaud in On tario; Elder William Ostrauder in Mon treal; Miio Warfie and wife in New Mexico, where they have just raised up a company of believers at Roswell. The work of the Detroit Mission has been very successfull curing the past year, under the administration of Elder E K. Slade, this being manifest in both fiuaucial and spiritual lines. The conference during the year has handled 112,000.00 worth of Christ's Ob ject Lessons, the book which was do nated to free the college from debt. It is a notable fact that those churches which have been most prompt in order ing and paying for their quota of these books are the churches which are in the best spiritual condition. The past year has been the best yet financially for the Cedar Luke Academy, and the church school work through the state has made much progress during the year. U the aged ministers have been well looked after during the year in harmony with the vote of the conference one year ago. It brings joy and gladness to the hearts of these hen they receive, not gifts, but their just dues. While there has been much accomplished in the past year in the canvassing work, yet but few, compared to the number there should be, are in the field today. It is expected that the work for Christ'BObject Lessons will develop many canvassers There is a great demand for conse crated young men and women in the nurses' work. A hundred young men could be employed immediately if they had the proper training. Let all young men ask if it is not their duty to accept this call. The address closed with an expression of thankfulness to those who have been his co-laborers during the year, for their kindness and forbearance and willingness to aid.
