Annual Meeting of the Woman's
Foreign Missionary Society.
Eager to learn the thirtieth annual
report in their work the delegates of the
Woman's Missionary Society of the
Memphis conference met in the beauti
ful little city of Newbern, June 15.
One presiding elder and several pastors
were present, lending their encourage
ment to the meeting. The annual
sermon was preached by Rev. A. . J.
Meaders, of Trenton.
Prominent among the visitors present
were Miss Daisy Davis, traveling secre
tary for the young people's work, and
Rev. C. G. Hounshell, a missionary in
Korea. Each of these made stirring
appeals for the practical application of
our religion to tne prooictn oi senuing
the Gospel to the eight hundred thirty-
six million, seven nunureu tnirty-two
thousand people that know not Chirst.
The theme of Miss Davis' talks might
be expressed in these words, spoken by
her, "We are tired of talking of the
faithful few and we want now to be able
to talk of the faithful many."
One fact stated by Eev. Hounshell, it
would seem, should be sufficient to
irouse tne most unbelieving to an ac
knowledgement of the truth that mis
sions pay. This statement was that
twenty-five years ago Korea knew
nothing of Christ, while to-day there are
two hundred thousand active christians;
and the little Hermit Kingdom has been
a constant state of revival for the
past five years. He characterized it as
the center of the heathen world and the
Koreans as the people who seemed
destined to carry the glad tidings of
salvation to their idol-serving neighbors.
ion new men ana pernaps as many
women are needed to properly carry on
the work we have started there.
The reports of the corresponding sec
retary and treasurer of the Conference
Society indicate increased interest. The
support of three new Bible women and
eleven new scholarships were assumed
during the year. Nine new societies
have been organized, ninety mission
study classes have been carried on.
One new missionary, Miss Hood, of
Brownsville, has been sent to the field.
The Conference Society, during the
year, paid $10,889.01, which is a de
cided increase over last year's gifts.
The Butler Vanguards, of Memphis,
paid one thousand dollars of this
JNext year the conference is to meet
in Clinton, Ky. With stronger con
victions that this work of missions is the
reasonable service of every one who
knows Christ, and with hearts pledged
to more complete surrender of time and
money to this noble work, the delegates
and visitors, onthelSth, turned their
faces homeward, feeling that it was good
to be in Newborn at such a gathering
for such a purpose.

Uthe war. The lot is located on the east

The Sigel Horror.
It was not Miss Elsie Sigel 's zeal in
the cause of Christianity that brought
her to so horrible an end, but her fail
ure to separate her missionary endeavor
from social mixture with people of .an
inferior race. Possibly her missionary
labors might have been of greater avail
if she had led her converts to under
stand that it was their spiritual benefit
as the result of faith in Christ only
about which she was concerned.
There was a great contrast between
Miss Sigel 's method of dealing with
these Chinese heathen and that of the
young women of the South in the old
plantation days who read the Bible and
administered to the spiritual wants of
the black slaves. Thousands of zealous
missionaries have labored for years in
China, Africa and heathen lands and
reared families there without contract
ing marital alliances with the natives
or meeting tnem on sucn terms as
would make such a thing possible.
Ministers of the gospel who go into the
Chinese quarters of New York X)r San
Francisco do not find social equality
necessary in the. prosecution of their
work, and do not have the Chinamen
intimate in their families.
. It is evident that Miss Sigel had suf
fered some degree of degradation from
her association with these Asiatics. Her
methods in dealing with them had
served more to drag her to their level
than to elevate them to hers. She had
become infatuated with the Chinaman
who is chiefly suspected of her murder,
and there seem to be reasons to believe
that at least one other of the race was
in love with her. Jealously and even
lower motives appear to have led to the
shocking tradgedy that ended her life.
She had gone entirely out of the
field of legimate missionary work,
and that noble endeavor should suffer
no criticism because of the fate that has
befallen her.
"Go ye and preach to all nations,"
was the behest of the Master to the
apostles, and but for the fervent and
undaunted zeal with which this com
mand was carried out the world would
have remained pagan. The command
is imperative on the followers of Christ
and will be until the religion of love, as
is said in Bishop Heber's good old mis
sionary hymn
"l,ike a sea of glory
HuS spread from pole to pole."
The unconquerable spirit of the mis
sionary was the sacred fire that spread
Christianity and made it such a bene
ficial force in the world. It cannot be
decried, and it must not be discounted
by confounding it with such distasteful
and degraded sentiment as that which
led to the revolting New York incident.
