The president of the United Charities announces that the an nual election of officers will take place Monday afternoon, Novem ber the second, at half past three o'clock, in the Sunday school room of the Methodist church. It is important that there be a full attendance, as in addition to the selection of those who will direct the affairs of the organization for the next year, it is at this gather ing that the work of twelve months is reviewed, and any change in ways and means adopted. Mr. Stinson, the earn est and able president, together with his assistants, has accom plished far more than the general public is aware of, and has sys tematized the work so that relief to the suffering and needy is promptly and wisely given. To one who has not had opportunity to observe the inner workings of the Association, its records would really be a revelation, and would establish beyond doubt the value of organized aid. Let the United Charities be granted the sympathy and hearty co-operation of every citizen, and let there be a liberal response to any call they make upon purse or time. The summer colony at Ment eagle has often been struck by the narrow outlook, the igno rance, the sad condition of the' mountaineers nearby. The un conscious pathos of their lives has left its impress, and a haunt ing sense of something to be done has not died with the sum mer. To reach them, and over come a multitude of prejudices, has been, and still is, a difficult question, but with a view to mak. ing the first step at least the Wo man's Christian Association was organized last July, and a Co lumbian, Mrs. Sarah Sheffield, was complimented by being elect ed first Vice-President. The Mississippi Home has been leas ed and will be used as headquar ters for the Association whose future promises a rich harvest. Activity along religious lines is apparent in many departments now-a-days, and in the Christian Endeavor Society there is a unit ing of forces to raise the "Special Missionary" fund which was in troduced last year when the so ciety contributed $50.00 towards the support of a missionary in foreign fields. The First Pres byterian church added thereto $500,00, making the- total amount required for the mainten ance of a worker across the seas. At once the mission board was notified that the Columbus church was ready to send out a missionary who was later assign ed duty in China as the bearer of "good tidings of great joy." Bishop Hesslein of the Catholic church was in the city Thursday, and administered the rite of con firmation at the Church of the Annunciation to a class of twelve, among whom were: Nellie Cady, Louise Peralto, Josie Lou Kemp, Florence Kemp, Ollie May Kline, John Kline, T. J. Cady, Jr., and Walter Peralto. The Bishop's sermon, which was addressed es pecially to the children, was a fine effort. While here he was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Runci man on College street. The name of Hon. George R. Wendling in the list of Lyceum attractions brings pleasant antici pations, and those who have been privileged to hear his "Man of Galilee," and "Saul of Tarsus," await with interest his new lect ure, a powerful and eloquent de fense of "The Imperial Book." A master orator and a deep think er, Mr. Wendling has rendered valiant service to the Christian literature of to-day and his com ing, near the close of the course, will be eagerly looked forward to. On Tuesday afternoon next, the regular teachers' meeting will be held at the Presbyterian church. These occasions give opportunity for a helpful inter change of ideas and are usually benefitted by a thoughtful ad dress by the pastor, Rev. Mr. Ogden. At St. Paul's Episcopal church, the sweet voices of the vested choir, admirably trained by Miss Annie Neilson, will soon be heard. They will present a pretty scene as well, and the innovation will find ready favor. The officials of the Methodist church are busy with finances as the end of the conference year approaches, and are making a very satisfactory report. Con ference convenes early in De. cember.

Nevertheless, in conformity with our accustomed policy, we are duly cautious in our advertisements against being aggressively or orchestrally for tissimo about it. In truth, we deem it almost as poor taste for a merchant to publicly present himself with bouquets in appreciation of his own achievements as it would be were he to boast of his birth, his brains or his boodle. And that a similar view of the case is entertained by the public cannot be questioned. The fact is, what a merchant may say regarding his methods or merchandise must necessarily be viewed as so much special pleading. Moreover, if his stock, ser vice and standards are, as he alleges superior to others, will it not be so proven in that crucial test the test of experience? Nor can aught that he may claim concern ing them change the verdict thereon one iota. We have long realized that it's not what we say that ultimately counts, but what we do. Consequently we shall pass up all panegyrics upon the exploits of our buyer on his recent invasion of Eastern mar kets, and proceed to "put you next" to "what's doing" throughout our various de partments during the coming week.
