TELLS OF BLOOMFIELD BOY. Little Som Colvin, Who Sent Flowers to Prisoner Lauded by W. C. T. U. Bloomfleld, Dec. 4.—A fair audience greeted Mrs. H. C. Day at the Meth odist Episcopal church Sunday evening and was very pleasantly entertained by the report of the world's W. C. T. U. convention at Boston and the national convention at Hartford, Connecticut, to which she had the honor of being a delegate. Mrs. Day is an interesting speaker and having caught the inspira tion of the two conventions, her de scription brought the sense so vividly before the minds of her hearers that they, too, caught something of the en? thusiasm and world-wide magnitude of the W. C. T. U. At Boston thirty-one nations were represented and forty na tional flags were unfurled. While at the national convention Mrs. Day had the pleasure of addressing the audience and in so doing gave them a report of our local W. C. T. tJ. flower mission work, in which she told them the story of little Sam Colvin of this city, who, hearing that the union was preparing to Send bouquets to. the prisoners at Fort Madisou, called the president to the telephone, asking if he might send a bouquet. The request being granted, he prepared a bouquet and presented it with his photograph and a letter writ ten by himself. Some time afterward he was greatly pleased to receive a let ter from the prisoner to whom the bou quet had been given. The man told his pitiful story and expressed his appre ciation of the flowers, and since the receipt of the little token of sympathy the man has been converted. The story greatly Interested her audience and at, the close delegates from different na tions came to her asking for a detailed account that they might use it in their work. Among these was Miss Sewell of Boston, the national 'superintendent of the W. C. T. U., who asked that she might have the story in detail to use for publication and. as a help in her work. Mrs. Gordon of Utah, Mrs. Bes sie Harrlman Lee of Australia, who is connected with the flower mission work of London: Mrs. Shepherd of England, the world's missionary, also asked for the story to use in state work, and in this way a young Bloomfleld boy has acquired a world-wide reputation.
