In the alternoon the program was carried out to the letter, with frequent spicing of other things of especial ex cellence. State Superintendent Meigs was on hand ami set forth definite plans for i v.m;. The convention adopted a new con-j st it ut ion - simple, flexible and suited to the situation. Uev. W. W. Uaymond presented a most complete scholarly address, fii'! of helpful hints to all workers in the Sunday-school. His theme was:" Jesus, the Suntlav-School Teacher's Model.' Mrs. W. P.. Outcalt interested all in a normal lesson, taking the life of Jesus as her study. Mrs. Noah Sintpert, of St.. Joseph, is a visitor and is often heard in counsel. KVKMMi MISSION. In the evening the church was pack ed. At 7:10 sunt; services was com menced under the leadership of J. G.

Smithreada chapter of scripture, and prayed which was followed by a musical number by the (Jueen City quartette. The bible lesson and address of C. D. Meigs, was of unusual interest, and was an effort truly appreciated by his heir- ers. The forcible truths presented re garding the work needed in our state in the Sunday school work, should be taken to heart in the pungent manner in which it was given and active work done by those who are interested in this great work. The last number on the program, ob ject teaching, 'My Cup," by Miss Mabel Hall, cannot be commented on in a man er belit ing the subject as handled by this Christian woman. The little cup used to represent the blessings received and emptied into her own cup, was an eloquent, silent lesson, that touched the hearts ot every listner. It forcibly struck the writer, and wo can but re echo the sentiment that found a voice n every heart. It was grand. With the churches of our laud composed of such Christians as Miss Mabel Hall, the conversion of the world would soon be accomplished. WKINKSIAY MOKMMi. Mr. Noah Sherpert led a "Workers Conference' at half-past-eight, the time was all to short for the many who had a word to offer. Uev. Mr. J arber led a devotional ser vice at nine, followed by an address by Uev. .1. T. Charlton, subject, "The IJook," It was a great review of a great theme and was listened to with fixed interest. At ten o'clock Miss Mabel Hull took charge of the conference on primary work, and considerable food for rellect ing was brought out. The reports of township superinten dents, county secretary and treasurer occupied the remainder of the fore noon session. Mrs. M. F.

Itrings luu Other lulu Hie luu lies of Hit- l.:in. The excitement over Kose. Tuesday for stealing a horse ami buggy at south Uend had fairly subsided, when a tele gram from that city to Marshall Meyers, telling him to lookout for two other fellows implicated in the same expedi tion, was received. Ina short time he was on the right scent and arrested two men by the name of Crown and Ilelcer. The former, llrown, worked here last summer on the sewerage, and of course was easily identified. The rig they were driving belonged to a linn at South Uend, Ireland A: Sou. At noon the sheriil ot that county, a Mr. Fversole, in company with John U. shank, came to Plymouth and re moved the prisoners to South liend. Another message was also received from Frank T. Major, of South liend, asking Marshall Meyer to look out for stolen sheep pelts. This telegram thus clears up the mystery surrounding the ownership of the pelts sold here. The cherk that was given to Kose for the hides has not been recovered. Hose no doubt gave it to one of his accomplices and as it in all probability has not been cashed, will be found when the two men now in custody are searched. A man who owns a female dog, and lets her run at large, ought to be within the reach of the law.
