WOMAN'S MISSIONARY SOCIETY The Woman's Missionary Society of the Methodist church met at the par sinage on Monday afternoon at 3 o' clock. This being the "Week if pray er and self-denial," special services have been held each day at the same place and hour. We are very grate ful to our pastor for his kind assist ance., The program for each day is as follows: Monday. Topic: "Thy Kingdom Come Prepare ye tne way of the Ldrd." "The prayer taught by the Master sets forth tho supreme duty of the church. To rightly pray this prayer, pledges our lives to secure its answer. And oh, such earnest supplications of consecration ts were made by our president and pastor. Study: Lttln American Fields. Mrs. Dow ell as leader. Tuesday: Topic: "Pray ye ,the Lord of the harvest that He will send forth laborers into His harvest." "God waits on our prayer to send forth workers." He has commisslcn od the church to evangelize the world. A very earnest prayer was offered by our leader, Mrs. McDearman, wo also made much comment on the scHpturo lesson. Study: Our opportunity and obll- gatlon at Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Wednesday: Topic: Our Workers. Scripture: Eph. Ill, 14-21; 2 Cor V, 20, VI, 10. "Many difficulties come to our work ers. Tne 'emarnis upon tnem is more than they can endure in their own strength. They are often weary and lonely and constantly in need of the uplift that comes from the power of our prayers." Most earest ' petitions wre made for 'our workers by broth er Tinnon and Miss Byrne. Study: Our Opportunity, and obi' gation at Vashti, Tbomasville, Ga. Leader, Miss Leona Byrne. Thursday: Topic; "Thanksgiving for Success. Scripture: Luke X, 17-20 ; Rev. VII 9-10, and XX, 1-7. "The world Is open to the gospel, every nation has yielded her fruit. The new heaven and earth are being made In our day. The New Jerusalem is coming forth as the bride of the Lamb." Study: The people of the Orient. Most earnest prayers of thanks giv- Iny and re-consecratlon were offered by Bro. Tinnon and Mrs. Dowell These meetings have been a spirit ed uplift to all who have attended them. Friday closes the series. A plea for new members: The Woman's Missionary Societies are an authorized agency in the church for carrying1 vat the Master's last com mand. The fruits of 86 years service prove their e clency. By joining the Missionary Society you become a vi tal force for the evangelism of the world. A single coal, no matter how brightly it glows, will oon die of oth er coals are not added. So missionary enthusiasm needs the strength of or ganization. The way is prepared for every member to do effective work at once. The Missionary Society de velops your talents, rounds out your life, broadens your sympathy, deep-; ens your prayer life, strengthens you in the grace of giving. Join the Miss ionary Society. The work needs you. You need the work , Supt. Pub . INISH your .w ood work the way you waAt it You can make your woodwork .and furniture harmonize and look just as you want them if you use Vei nict.1 Floor and Varnish Stain.
