oman's nisslonary Union of Acco?
mac Association.
rho seventh annual meeting of the
oman's Missionary Union of the
?comae Association waa held on
leeday, August lst.with thc Pongo
ague Baptist Church, otherwise
wwii as "Hollies." Thc meeting
as called to order at 10:45 a. m. by
rs. J. NV. Reams, of tho Lower Nor
lampton Church, the associational
iperintendent, who also conducted
notional exercises, and was follow
1 by Mrs. G. F. Williams, of Rich
iond, Va., who led in prayer.
The Union was cordially welcomed
y Miss Battaile, to whom Mrs. C. L.
orbitt.of Red Bank ('burch, respond
d in behalf of the visitors. The air
,as rather chilly for the season, but
lie warm hearts of both guests and
ostesscs made wraps unnecessary,
Od bright faces supplied the sunuhine
vhich the skies lacked. Throughout
he day only good cheer prevailed.
\fter roll-call and rejKirts from the
societies, interesting talks were given
jy Mrs. Reams, Mrs. Waples from
3nancock, and Mrs. NVilliams. The
latter is a sister of our beloved Dr. A.
B. Woodfin, and like her gifted broth?
er, is silver-tongued. Mrs. Williams
represents the "Sunbeams," and
made a strong plea for a Band in
every church.
Miss Buhlmaier, our Immigrant
missionary of tho Homo Board at Bal?
timore, held the audience spellbound
for more than an hour. I wish that
every Baptist of both sexes on the
Peninsula could have beard this
earnest, Godly woman fell of her work
and plead for the Home Board. Her
consecration and cnthuBiasm were
contagious and tears filled many eyet
as we listened.
At 1 p. m. tho body adjourned foi
dinner, and such a dinner! Hollies ii
famed for peace and plenty, am
sustained her reputation on thisocca
sion right nobly. Words fail me t<
tell of the abundance, beautifull;
cooked, beautifully served, and pres*
ingly urged upon every gueBt present
regardless of creed, sex, or race. Th
men are not invited to hear th
women talk, but they are not forgo
; ten at the feast.
The afternoon was consumed by
programme beginning with devotioi
al exercises conducted by Mrs. Wi
Hams, followed by Mrs. A. T. Jame
of the Southern Methodist Churcl
who spoke interestingly of the woi
of their women. Mrs. J. W. Car
mack, of Onancock, read a fine, hel
ful paper on "Every Missionary bo<
cty a spiritual force." Particular
fine papers were read by Mrs. Ha
of Parksley, and Mrs. Street,
Cashville. Mrs. Hiden read a she
pap\jr on "What are our societ
doing for State Missions?" Mrs. L
zie Bell, of Rod Bank, spoke abc
the "Margaret Home." After
little further routine work, follow
by a motion from Mrs. S. F. Roge
that a rising vote of thanks be gp
to "Hollies" for the hospitality,
body adjourned, to meet at Bed Ba
on August 2nd, 1906.
After adjournment, Miss Buhlim
was invited to take the floor and
an hour or more, men and wor
listened eagerly while she spoke
her mission work.
Deacons B. F. Mears and T. J. I

Editor of Enterprise?Thinking per
aps some of your readers might like
> hear something from us, I have de
ided to write a few lines to your
aper. NVe, my wife, Lillian and my
dfo's niece, Miss Hompstone, sailed
rom Baltimore, on the North German
Joyd line steamer "Main" June 14th
ur Bremen, Germany. We had two
lundred and forty passengers from
learly all parts of our country and
rom nearly all professions or vocations
n life, a majority of ladies. The
?oyage from Baltimore to Bremen is
ibout four thousand miles; we had a
I'ery delightful voyage ot twelve days
across arriving in Bremen, June 27th.
After staying a few days in Bremen
my family and 1 bought tickets for
our trip, starting entirely independent
and alone, first, througli Holland visit?
ing Amsterdam, The Hague and thence
by way of the Hook of Holland across
the North Sea to Harwich, England,
thence to London. We spont six
days in Holland visiting many his?
toric and otherwise places of interest.
Among them the Queens Palace and
the houso in tho woods where the
Peace Congress was held. We spent
twelve days in London, and of course
saw right much, for we were all the
time on the go.
The Baptist Worlds Congress to
which my church did me the honor to
appoint me a delegate, which I waa
proud ot, was indeed very interesting
to me. At the opening when the roll
of countries was called it was re
sp*uided to by a delegate from each ol
tho following in a five minute speech
Austria,Hungary, Denmark, Finland
France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands
Norway, Russia, Sweden, Unite.
Kingdom, China, India, Japan, Congo
South Africa, National Baptist Con
vontion, Southern Baptist Convention
Regular Baptist, North, Lott Care
Convention, Canada, Mexico, Wet
Indies, Australia and New Zealand an
many times following the speocheB,
solo or the national air of the countr
would be sung in their own tongue an
then repeated in the English languag
I was reminded of the account i
Pentecost, "every one speaking in h
own li nguage." Dr. Curtis Lee Law
of Baltimore, responded to the c.
made to tho Southern Baptist Co
vention and the two hundred delegat
present from the Southern Bapti
Convention stood up and all sang "1
Country Tis of Thee" and my sc
was thrilled as never before. Missie
and the best means and measures
be adopted for the extension of t
Redeemer's Kingdom in the wo
seemed to be the key note of the C<
gress. I saw many from the Unit
States whom I knew and have hei
preach.
I have been through the ho?
of Parliament, Westminster Abb
St. Paul's Cathedral, and saw Ba
ingham Palace (King Edward and
Queen) and many other hist*
buildings and places. London is ti
a great city, but behind New _
city in many things modern. A
twelve days in London, we crof
the channel into France and r
been here in beautiful Paris four d;
sight-seeing. Much might be
about Paris had we the time
space. Of this we may say n
later, for my family are consta
on the go sight-seeing. After sp
ing two weeks in Paris, our tic
take us to other parts of France,
through Switzerland, stopping
Lucerne and other places, ther
sail down the Rhine to Cole
thence through Germany,to Dre*
Berlin, &c, sailing on the 19t
August for New York arrivin
