WOMEN'S MISSION BOARD. Reports of Missionary Work in the Sonth Seas Discussed. The special meeting held by the Woman's Board of Foreign Mis sions yesterday afternoon in the parlors of Central Union Church, was an exceptionally interesting and profitable one. Some fifty ladies were present, among the number being a great many etrang ers from the States. The special object of the meet ing was the consideration of mis sionary work in Micronesia, the latest news of which was received by the steamer Morning Star. Several letters and journals from missionaries in Micronesia were read at the meeting. All of these were quite interesting, relating as they did to a new and promising field for mission work. The re ports of Micronesia were very en couraging and awakened in the board a feeling that more hard work must be done to carry on the labors in the South Seas. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the meeting was a talk by Miss Abel, the returned mis sionary, on the impressions she re ceived during her sojourn in Mi cronesia. Miss Abel referred espe cially to the dress and costumes of the women, illustrating her re marks by donning native articles of dress, which she brought from the islands. She spoke enthusias tically of the work and expressed the hope that endeavors in behalf of the natives would not cease. i Y. W. C. T. U. Young women, don't be afraid of being called fanatics ; study and in form yourselves about the saloon evil in all its forms, social, economic and political, and then stand with all the power of your influence for total abstinence, home protection and for eicirle stanAm-A of moraia in society. Said one who had been urged to help thin movement, I cannot tind in the Bible any warrant either for total abstinence or for bringing re forms Into politics. Our Saviour drank wine and made it at the w. ding feast, tie did not enter politi cal life, but taught by personal influ ence and example.'' To such we might reply, the New Testament is not a code of laws, but a suggestion of principles. It does not command, "Be a total abstainer," but it does lay down the principle, "If meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world stands!" To follow this principle mutt lead to total abstinence. There is no proof that Christ drank or made intoxicating wine, but even if he had do eo, it would not be a warrant for us to do likewise under the changed conditions of today, with the saloon in our midst and with thousands under the power of heredi tary appetite. Can any one suppose that if Christ were on the earth today, He would taste the fiery alcoholic mixtures men call stimu lants? Would it not be wholly con trary to the teachings and influence of His life? MAY CIRCUIT COURT. Foreign and Native Jurors Drawn For the Term. The next term of the Circuit Court will open on May Gth.
