In the September Woman's Home Com i panion a minister begins a. series of ar : ticles in which he is going to relate his '! experiences with women. The first story f in his series is the story of "The Worn- an Who Came in the Night" a woman 'in d6ep trouble who Came for counsel and advice. Jn a general way the min ! ister comments as follows on his ex periences with women: "I suppose I have known 25,000 worn , en in my nearly 30 years of ministry. There have been all kinds of women, as : there have been all kinds of men; but , as I look back over the years, the wom en show up rather more favorably than the men. "So long as the world is as it is, he Jwho enters upon the work of the min istry must expect that more than a half of his time and effort will be claimed by women; at least in thepariahes where ordinary conditions prevail. In that re spect the minister is not different from tlie musician, or the actor, the lecturer, or the popular author. The proportion of women in church congregations is not so overwhelming by any means as the proportion of women at concerts, or the theatre, nor among the readers of new books. Women have leisure for these finer things of life, as their har ried and driven husbands do not: and in their church attendance there is anoth er influence more potent even than their leisure. Spiritual insight of the fruer sort is the peculiar birthright of good women: they are the preservers of rer- erpnee, the transmitters of vision to the muscled men who are their sons."

W, Aiken of the selectmen of Putney ad dressed from the steps of the town build ing in Putney last evening an open-air audier.ee which pecked the street. He explained his side of the controversv that has arisen over the arrest Aug. of Rev. A. F. Trice, pastor of the Bap tist church, for riding a bicycle on the sidewalk. The minister pleaded guilty and paid a fine. Mr. Aiken explained that the law was a state law, but that addition to this the selectmen had riosted notices and that Mr. Trice was one of those who had knowingly broken the law. He explained that he had not intended to have the writ served upon a Mr. Trice, but to arrange to have the summon Mr. Trice before the court. He further explained that the writ was sent bv the state s attorney to (micer Proutv who served it without the knowledge of Mr. Aiken. Referring to statements Mr. Trice has made in print, Mr. Aiken publicly de clared that Mr. Trice did not know the meaning of the words "veracity" and "exaggeration" and declared that there was no animosity in his action. He said that he was willing to stand on a vote of his auditors and continue in office and enforce the laws or resign. This chal lenge was met with shouts of "stay," and the speaker, after notifying the boys that that law as well as all others would be enforced, left the steps. Mr. Trice promptly took his place and declared that it was evident from Mr. Aiken s speech that there was animosity in the serving of the warrant. He said that Mr. Aiken had promised that it would not be served and that he was to have the privilege of going before the court and pleading guilty without the disgrace of public arrest. He claimed that he rode on the sidewalk for a short dis tance only because the highway was im passable. Lion brand yarns at Knight's.
