THE EPW ORTH LEAGUERS.
THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE
TEXAS CONFERENCE IN
.Delegates in Attendance Opening Ser
jnon by Rev. Chas. A. Hooper
"When the first contingent of
delegates to the third annual
meeting of the Epworth Leagues
embraced in thjjj Texas conference
reached Brenham on the morning
trains Tuesday "they doubtless
"Were forcibly reminded of the
principal tenets of Methodism
sprinkling and pouring. The
first all day rain in several
months had just been fairly in
augurated and the city wore a
bedraggled appearance not at all
suggestive of hospitality. The
reception committee, however,
made up for any discrepancy
that the inhospitable' -weather
clerk saw fit to impose. A dozen
or more members of the committee
braved the downpour to extend
the hand of welcome and the
hospitalities of the city to the
visitors. "When the afternoon
trains arrived the rain had some
what abated, but was still falling
in sufficient quantities to dampen
the spirits of less determined
workers than constitute the' Ep
worth League organizations.
Fifty-six delegates came in on
the day trains Tuesday. Others
reached Brenham on the night
trains and more are expected.
Those who came in in time for
the opening service were :
