addressed the conference at 8:1'5
o'clock this morning. He' preached
another clear and powerful sermon.
At the morning session, the Rev. M.

the superannuate relation.

long and useful career in the Western
Virginia conference. . He has served
many of the best charges In this state.

will regret that Mr. Bowie*, will no

After a long, useful and honored life
in the ministry?a career marked by
many brilliant achievements and
never tarnished by an~ unseemly act,
he retires into the private life of a
