Eddyville, March 30.—(Special)—
The Rev. Lucy Whittier Carter, pastor
of the Congregational church here,
was born about thirty-five years ago
in the heart of Boston. Her parents
were Episcopalians, but she was
reared by her grand parents in a
strictly Methodist home. She
traversed a triangle extending be
tween church and school and home.
Her young mind was religiously in
clined and she listened with the deep
est awe and-keenest enjoyment to the
great preachers and lecturers. She was
soundly converted at the age of twelve
under Sam P. Jones and ever since
she has been engaged actively in re
ligious work. Before she was thirteen
she planned to follow the example of
Anna Shaw and Frances Willard and
become a public speaker, and from
that time resolved to be an ordained
preacher. The Methodist church would
not ordain her. They were willing for
her to be a deaconess and do religious
calling or nursing or marry a minister
and thus silently serve the church,
but no pulpit could be permanently
hers, hence after graduating from the
Boston schools and entering Boston
university, she joined the Congrega
tional church, where she became an
ordained minister. She supplied pul
pits all over New England and held
the pastorate of Romsey Chapel, Dor
chester, Mass., for a year. When she
graduated from Boston University
School of Theology she settled down
to teach theology and kindred subjects
and held a professorship at the Lucy
Webb Hayes training school at Wash
ington, D. C., but this was not her
forte so she left it and traveled over
the middle west for a couple of years.
But the woman prevailed over the
preacher. She married a noted musi
cian and for three years lived the
ideal life, the life she would advise ev
ery woman to live rather than the pro
fessional career. When she was widow
ed in the Black Hills, S. D., she took
her baby, her dog and her trunks and
sojourned eastward. She stopped in
Iowa. In speaking of her chosen life
Rev. Carter says:
"The work is blessed if courage and
faith in human nature can equal my
faith in God the Father. The problems
of church keep pace with all the
changing conditions of this great land.
Competition is rife, expenses are high
er and salaries diminish, but we bat
