' In the . years past, and in some of the , more conservative Yearly Meet ings, the sessions of the ministers and the .overseers have been, open to members of the. society only, as ques tions of church policy and other mat ters of importance are then discuss ed. . The- Western Yearly Meetings have broken away from this practice, and, while only delegates from the various quarterly meetings and mem bers of the departments of ministry and overseers had a voice in the meet ing, visitors who were not Friends wer not asked to withdraw. As women Friends have absolute equality in the Friends' association with the men, there are two clerks of the meeting John 0. Iladley, of Dan ville, acting as present clerk, and Ida Coffin Doari, of .Iladley, as recording clerk. Among the more interesting com munications from the quarterly meet ings were those from Kokomo 'and New London. They declared that in the opinion of those quarterly meet ings the time had come when the Yearly Meeting should take pains to place in the hands of - the ministers who had not the advantages of mod ern methods a system of study which might assist them better to meet the educational and spiritual needs of present conditions.

' v the Newcastle, Ind., September 16. The' Scott homestead, an old land mark of the city, which has stood on East Broad street 'for more than fifty years, is shortly to be torn down.

In" their anxiety to make lots of noise the gunners became reckless and the quick firing heated the cannon and it burst, pieces flying in all dir ections. Three boards on the west end of the Scott house show where a piece of the cannon weighing sixty pounds, pene trated the wall, In its path was a chimney, and also an old-style mantel, both of which were torn away. In the same room an infant, now a well known young lady of the city was sleeping and, although the cradle was covered with mortar, the child was un injured and when uncovered was still asleep The wide board which formed the mantel had been thrown across the cradle, covering the child, and the bricks had fallen on top of this, saving the child from death.
