They Show the Boards Condition to be
t All That Could be Desired The presi
dents Annual Address The Pro
ceedings of Teiterdays he loa
The Womans Board of Missions held
three sessions yesterday but the afternoon
session was an executive one and
the outside public were not ad
mitted The actual business of
the convention began yesterday and
during the rest of the week business will
be tho order of tho day All the proceed
ings yesterday were very interesting
especially as no horrid man
was allowed to have anything
to say about the conduct of affairs The
ladies show themselves well drilled in
parliamentary law and tho dis
patch with which their busi
ness is conducted might well
serve as a model for many of the stronger
sex The following is the programme for to
815 pm 1 Opening religious service
2 Annual love feast led by Mrs Juliana
The Proceedlnss or the Board or Missions
At 9 oclock the delegates began to arrive
at the First Methodist church and at 915
most of them were iu their seats At 920
oclock hymn 427 was sung after which
came a scripture lesson and prayer wa3
offered by Mrs Juliana Hayes president
Eurollment of delegates was next in order
On motion of Mrs Park Mrs S Calhoun
of Fort Worth and Mrs F E Howell of
Dallas were appointed a committee on plat
form courtesies
This was all preliminary Tho meeting
was then called to order and tho minutes of
the first and second daysscssions were read
aud approved
Hymn 18S was sung and then Mrs W B
Fan of Dallas of the Womans board of
missions of the Cumberland Presbyterian
church was introduced and delivered an ad
dress on Fraternal Delegates
Mrs Juliana Hayes president of the
Woman s board of missions of tho Metho
dist Episcopal church South read her an
nual address
My Sitters of the Executive Board
We praise God for the privilege of meet
ing you onco more in tho flesh Through
daugers toils and snares we have come up
to our yearly gathering and wo praise the
blessed Providence that has preserved out
lives and kept us as in the hollow of His
haud to the present time When our Jesus
stood beside tha grave of his friend Lazarus
ho wept May wo not believo his sacred
heart was touched with sorrow as he
thought on the earths bereavements and
the pains and griefs of the race whom He
came to rescue from eternal death And
will He not permit us in this hour of joyful
reunion to pause in sadness as we gazo on
tho seats made vacant by the removal from
our midst of our precious Sisters Chilton
and Montague Even though we know that
their translation to tho celestial glory is
their eternal gain we must bend in sadness
over their newmade tombs which hide
from our eyes the gifted and consecrated
Mrs Chilton who was wedded to my heart
by enduring chains of Christian affection
and Mrs Montague our sweet singer
whose notes of melody are now at this
moment mingling with the swelling acclaim
from tho heavenly choir of glory to God
Other of our sisters who have hitherto
met with us Mrs Cunningham Miss Me
lissa Baker and our devoted corresponding
secretary are all by physical inability un
able to take their places in our assembly to
day Our corresponding secretary has been
apparently near tho confines of tho eternal
world and while life seemed rapidlyebbtng
away she was granted such a blessed reve
lation of the presence of Christ that I feel
it will be a rich blessing to you my sisters
to hear her own account of it written by
herself Shew ould rather shrink from its
being repeated but to you my sisters who
are part and parcel of her being I will
venture without her consent to show what
her Lord in the hour of utter weakness
did for her Mrs Wightman will please
read the record in your possession
In this record wo discover the high and
lofty privilege to which we the children of
our fallen race aro exalted communion
with Christ in the broadocean of the lovo
of God does it not excite within us long
ings for the same revelation of divine love
And why may we not realize in this hour a
taste of the samo excellent glory Why
may we not realize a Pentecostal shower
Do we really desire a baptism of tho Holy
Spirit Oh 1 for that reaching of the heart
which will reveal to all of us our need of
the Holy Spirit and hence our dependence
on believing earnest habitual prayer
Every missionary impulse Hows from the
heart of Christ hence tha absence of tho
Holy Spirit paralyzes prayer and tho Holy
Spirit will not dwell in a prayerlcss heart
God will care for results duty is ours
The great students uprising which is de
nominated tho students volunteer move
ment for foreign missions was originated
among a few praying souls
Mrs Mattic Jones return missionary of

Annual Reports and
the lltulnni
At 815 p m the First Methodist church

retary of homo affairs Miss Mary Helm
and the report of the treasurer
Mrs H X McTynse Jr Also to hear
the annualaddress delivered by Rev C O

After singing by tho choir the meeting
was formallyopened by Bishop Key read

because of the feeble voice of the president
Mrs Hayes

MetltoUtat Episcopal Church South
Orsuuzed 1878 Sirs D II 31c
GaTock Foreign Secretary
Then came the reading of tho report of
the foreign secretary which was read by
Miss Gibson Following is the report
I amthe vine yearo the branches
These words of Christ show the close rela
tion that should exist between Him and nis
followers If they are rooted and grounded
in Him the same life that abides in the
vine abides in the branches and thus co
operating with him they bring forth flower
and fruit to His glory
The members of tho Womans Missionary
society are peculiarly set apart to work
together with God and results have
shown that cooperation with Him is the
only source of success iu bringing benighted
minds to tho light of Christ Dr Cuyler
says The great demand of tho times is
for men and women who live near to God
and also that Tho lifting power oMhe
church increases directly in the ratio of its
connection with the source of all light and
love and strength amd holiness
If wo would havo men and women who
live near to God we must train tha chil
dren of the church and prepare them to
fill the places their elders will soon leave
vacant Statistics show that tho largest
increase in numbers to tho society comes
from j oung peoples and juvenile organiza
tions The writer quoted above also says
most aptly The church that has no
young blood in its veins is a withering fig
tree There is no better way of cultivating tha
vines and young growth in our part of the
Lords vineyard than to distribute tho liter
ature that is provided by the Womans
board of missions
Knowledge is tho force that governs the
world and in missionary work it is the
lover resting on the fulcrum faith which
shall remove tho mountains of heathendom
into the sea of Gods love
As chairman of publishing committee I
call attention to tho Womans Missionary
Advocate and to the leaflets published for
the Womans missionary society
At the last annual meeting it was decided
to enlarge the Womans Missionary Advo

changed from a sixteenpage paper to a

the finances are in sound condition It is

Leaflets were issued quarterly for the
use of the societies as ordered by the
board One million four hundred thousand
pages have been published tho last year
and have been most helpful in the monthly
The Womans board has twentynine
representatives in foreign fields three aro

An account was recently given of a
shipwreck which was thrilling in its de
tails and most oppropriato in this connec
The wreck was seen from the shore and
a number of fishermen manned the only
boat that could be found and with great
difficulty all were brought safely to land
except three or four
The storm raged with great fury and tha
men laid down exhausted on the rock bound
coast saying they could go no more to tha

standing with a few others on the shore
and hearing them declare that they had
made the last trip he kneeled and prayed
then said If four others will go with

We wil go jou stay on the rock and
