Meeting Brimful of Practical, Helpful and Inspiring Talks and
Addresses. Charming Visitors in Attendance. Miss Davies
Holds Institute. All Departments Discussed.
Plenty More Like This In Clov-erport.
"When I read In The Brcckenrldge
News the advanced article about the
missionary meeting, I wondered if It
would come up to the way it was pict
ured," said the Kev. Mr. James H.
Walker, pastor of the Methodist church
of this city, Thursday evening1 and he
concluded: "The meeting has been all
and more than it was advertised " Mrs.
Frank Fralze with enthusiasm re
marked as the delegates stepped on
the train for their homes, "The meet
ing has been great, far beyond my ex
pectations." Expressions of delight
and enjoyment were heard from all the
delegates and the home people over
the success of the annual meeting of
the Woman's Missionary Societies of
the Owensboro District. It opened
Wednesday morning and closed Thurs
day night. Mrs. A. L. Mell, district
secretary, presided. She held the meet
ing welt In hand and directed It so that,
notwithstanding tho time was limited,
reports from all the delegates were
heard and presentations of all depart
ments of the work were given. Mrs.
Mell said before coming, that the
meeting felt welcome to Cloverport
and after coming that the officers and
delogatcs had been made to feel more
welcome by the hospitality received
and they all felt that they bad
well come to Cloverport. Mrs. James
Tague, secretary of the Cloverport
Auxiliary, acted as secretary for the
meeting and was one of the busiest
women prosent.
The devotional services were lead
by Mrs. H. A. Evans, the Louisville
Conference President, Miss Tula Dan
iels, the Conference Corresponding
Secretary, Mrs. Walter J. Piggott, the
Conference Fourth Vice Presideut, and
Mrs. V. G. Babbage, President of the
Cloverport Auxiliary. The principal
addresses were made by Mrs. Alice
Hargrove Barclay, daughter of the
late beloved Bishop Hargrove, Mrs.
Bettie Whitehead, the Conference Re
cording Secretary, and Mis3 Daisy
Davies, of Atlanta, Ga., one of the ten
managers of the Board of Missions.
Reports From The Delegates.
The delegates present were: Mrs. J.
L.r Wegonest, of Stephensport, Mrs.
Towers, of Owensboro, Mrs Mary
Powell, of Drakesboro, Mrs. Moore, of
Owensboro, Mrs. Solesburg, of Central
City, Mrs. Dexter, of Beaver Dam.
Mrs. Wegouest in her report said
that the auxiliary at Stephensport had
just been organized and that they
were new and ignorant in the work.
Mrs. Wegonest said that she had
learned a great deal from the meeting
and it was a wonderful help to her.
She was the guest of Mrs Roscoe Las
lie. Mrs. Towers, of the Breckenridge
Street Alethodist church, a most ear
nest delegate at the meeting, said she
never wanted to miss another. It had
been one of deep Inspiration to her and
she would try hard to tell them at
home the many good suggestions for
the work ttiat she had gathered here.
Mrs. Lightfoot entertained Mrs. Tow
ers. Mrs. Moore, of (he Settle Memorial
of Owensboro, gave a splendid report
from that church. The society there
has both the Foreign and Home De
partments well developed. She gave a
lengthy list of plans of social service
the society carried out with success
and other notes of Home Mission work
accomplished In Owensboro by the Wo
man's Missionary society of Settle Me
morial. Mrs. Moore Is an enthusiastic
Home Mission woman and she was a
delightful guest In the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Abe Sklllman.
Miss Mary Powell, of Drakesboro,
stayed with Mrs. John A. Ross, She
was a young woman deeply interested
in the work and went home anxious to
organize a Foreign Department In the
Auxiliary of their church, which Is a
s.rictly Home Mission society. If all
the members of the Drakesboro society
could have heard Mrs, "Whitehead's
address on Foreign Missions, they
would not hesitate a minute to put in a
Foreign Department in their society.
Mrs. Solesburg, of Central City, who
represented "Brother Currie's church,"
was the pleasant guest of Mrs. Fred
Fraize and had the biggest financial
report given. The Central City society
has both departments and the Home
Mission women have been making pay
ments on the new church.
Mrs. Dexter, the delegate of Beaver
Dam, represented the Home Mission
society of that place. It was organized
two years ago without a Foreign De
partment wh'Ich Mrs. Dexter hopes to
organize soon. Mrs. Dexter was enter
tained by Mrs. Frank Fraize,
Mrs. C. Wickllffe Moorman was the
delegate from the Cloverport society.
She told how the pledge had been
raised from 5 to $35 in last fifteen
years, the time Mrs. Moorman has
been treasurer. The Auxiliary will put
in a Home Department Monday after
noon at the November meeting.
firs. Barclay'5 Address.
A most vivacious and original ad
dress on "The Religions of tho World"
was given by Mrs, Alice Hargrove
Barclay Wednesday afternoon. Mrs.
Barclay is a most attractive speaker.
She made every auxiliary feel the im
portance of a mission study class. She
brought in a bit of philosophy that
women must feel before they can act
they have to know before they can feel.
They will never know or feel until
they see or read. Mrs. Barclay told
how to organize a mission study class.
Don't begin with books diflicult to read,
at least, that seem diflicult until one
gets interested in the countries across
the seas. "The Days of June" is a
lovoly little book (for fifty cents) that
will sow the seed for a Mission Study
Class and lead women, old and young,
to literature worth while. Mrs. Bar
clay went on until twilight fell, telling
her charmed audience, of much that
was refreshing and convincing to the
heart and mind. Mrs. Barclay was the
charming guest of Airs. Shelby Conrad.
Airs. Whitehead's Address.
Mrs. Bettie Whitehead gave an ad
dress Wednesday night full of infor
matiou on Foreign Missions. She told
of the wonderful work done in India,
Japan, Africa, Korea and other foreign
fields. Her address was full of strength
and stimulated one's desire to help
those in heathen countries. Mrs. White
head supports a native minister in In
dia. She was the guest of Mrs. Francis
Marlon Smith, who far many years has
been one of the strongest Foreign Mis
sionary women of Cloverport. After
the address, Airs Whltehoad, Mrs.
Evans, Mrs. Mell, Miss Daniel and
Mrs. Babbage were presented with
flowers by the Clover Blossoms: Misses

Scores of Cloverport people can tell
you about Doan's Kidney Pills. Many
a happy citizen makes a public state
ment of his experience. Here is a case
of it. What better proof of merit can
be had than such endorsement?
L. V. Cnapln, Cloverport. Ky , says:
"I have used one box of Doan's Kidney
Pills and they did me a great deal of
good. Last summer I was in bad shape
with kidney trouble and seeing Doan's
Kidney Pills recommended, I went to
Fisher's Drug Store and-got a box. In
a short time I was cured and I have
had no need of a kidney medicine

Miss Davies Speaks.
Miss Davies spoke Thursday night
after holding an institute all the after
noon and part of the morning. Home
Missions, Miss Davies thoroughly cov
ered in her speech Thursday night,
telling of the great work of the Wes
ley Houses in the large cities all over
the United States, that are supported
by the Home Mission Societies. She
made every woman present a bit mis
erable, in a delicious way, over the
meager help or absolutely none that
thoy had given to tho Home Mission
work in America. In the Institute
work Miss Davies brought out tho Con
stitution plainly in all the departments
and showed how great was the ma
chinery of the Woman's Missionary
Societies of the Methodist Church
The Vice Presidents.
Miss Davies gave suggestions for the
work of the First Vice Pres'dent. "1
would rather see this office blank than
to have a woman in it who will not
work," declared Miss Davies. The
Baby Division and Junior Division are
in charge of the First Vice President
and the possibilities of this office are
The Second Vice President has the
Ycung People's work and Miss Davies
thinks that It should be carried on
separately if possible from tho Ep-
worth League, unless it can be satis
factorily correlated, which is left to
the judgment of the president of this
and social service work.

Mrs. Evans attended tho District
meeting at Cecllian Saturday and she
hopes to attend several District meet
ings during the year. The Conference

the departments of tne missionary

Miss Davies devoted a deal of time
to the department of Third Vice Presi
dent, giving points on the promotion of
Christian steward-ship. She said:
"Women are stewards of their money,
their time, their mentality, their influ
ence, their children." Her talk on this
subject was valuable Indeed.

ho started to rave.
"I don't object to the money being
spent, although new paper is Just ex

"How else could I put it on?" asked
Mi a. Graball. In surprise.
"How else?" ho retorted when ho

The Love Letters of a
Confederate General
WE begin in the November issue a series
of real love-letters written over fifty
years ago by one of our national
heroes to his sweetheart during the period of
'6i to '65. This great general will go down to
posterity as having accomplished one of the
most brilliant feats of arms in the history of
the world. He was as great a lover as he was
a general, therefore these letters combine au
thentic history and exquisite romance. They
sound a human note that no other work of
literature has done in a decade; it is war, it is romance, it is history, it is
literature. You simply can't afford to miss this wonderful series an inside
