This session closed with a tmporary oaganization of a chil dren's society kuoyn as the Loyal Temperance Legion. The evening session was giv en over to a most entertaining and instructive lecture by Mrs. Woods, based on th Scripture found in II. Peter, 1: 5 7" which is known as the Temperauce Ladder. The incidents and ex periences so forcefully related ought to serve as a great stimu lus to all temperance workers to renew their zaal along all lines that tend to the bettorrneut and upliftiugof humanity. It is a source of regret that many more did not 'avail them selves of this rare opportnity to hear and learn from one so weH equipped and qualified to do tins gryat work. Friday a.m. was given to Insli- tute work proper: after which a ' bountiful dinner was servep by the members oy the W. C. T. U, The p. m. session was opened devotions led by Mrs. G, S. Bur- Jnjy, followed by a legislative' drill by the President, Mrs. C.L. Bench. Next a parliamentary drill was given by Mrs. Woods. This was immediately put into practice,- causing no little merri merit to the onlookers who were not sufficiently courageous to participate. The dosing and crowning feature of the two days' session was tie Silver Medal Contest on Friday evening The contest ants were six small boy9 who baen trained by Miss Gertrude Keller of Mountain Grove. The boys did nobly and are to ce commended for their courage and labors. While the judges, Mrs. J N.Craig, Mrs. May L. Woods and Air.

The car will be used foi couveying steel, and by it the employees will be tak en to and returned from the work each clay There was a plan to begin active operations Wednesday morning but the heavy rains of the past three days have interferred. By Mon day it is expected that fully for ty men will be busy in pushing the work.

Most of the readers of the PiiEsa know that we are all ex pecting Dr. A. T. Osbron of Kansas City to operate a rest camp on the Bryant in the im mediate future. Dr. Osbron was here Sunday and looked over the ground and selected a site; and we are in formed that a dam will at once : bo built across the Bryant aud a spacious lake will be provided. The camp will occupy a site a mile from where the iibw rail road eroses the Bryant It is expected that a large number of peopd will asseru at the camp in tho naar future. Some believe the uutabors will run iuto the thousands. This is quite possible, eyeu probable. Our readers should study the pamphlet that ' sets forth the purpose-of this movement. They should carefully consider the claims and evidence in the writ ings and addresses of thu Doc lor.

Secretary Held of speculation opens If we at tempt to explore the. projjsiei tf our mental operations. A class, quite Dumerous and re spectab'e, are i;r, n just such, tleo rles as Dr. Osbron advocate. Anoth er class of equal pro u inence point out many opjeeilons to psychic heal ing No' can the latter he classed as nonprogressive. They represent the best In Intellect, training, and expe rience. They do not deny th reality or the occult, or bidden. They admtk that there are great Influences of which we know but little. They a mit that psychic forcus may and do transcend the pretentions of mate rial medicine. But they point out the fact that th?se psychic practices are fraught with great peril. If you read the modprn magazines you find a list of wonderful cures by the poysklans who employ hypno tism. And in the same volume you will find tla. men of unquestioned lauksnd qualiQeations who sound a note of warning, and cite numerous cases to pro? e trial psychic foices are truly powerful imp also truly dan gerous. Dr. Osbron writes his pamphlet in a modest, straight, forward manner. He makes no rash promises. B.t of all, he promises that all treatment shall to alsolutely free. There aie not even any incidental charges. No one questions his sincerity. Ihe re sults must he left to ru:ure demon stration. We have'read bis pamphlet most carefully. We should call it most enthusiastic. May i s author be never disappointed. Lei us give him a respectful hearing. It Is a little remarkable that while we ate writing this the dil.les an nounce that.
