Tho Baptist church was beautifully decorated with plants and banners and tho citizens of Ionia entertained us royally. Wo wore welcomed by tho pastors and representatives of the missionary and young peoples societies of tho several churches to which re sponses were given by Miss Clara Wheeler and Mrs. J. W. Adams of Grand Ilaplds. Thursday evening Dr. Mary Wood Allen of Ann Arbor gave an excellent address on purity. We wished that the people of Belding could have heard it. Among other things she particularly emphasized the fact that it was the duty of parents to properly inform their children of tho dangers that beset the feet of the young, rather than leave them to learn of the evil from corrupt persons, or perhaps through some terrible ex perience. This was an excellent ad dress throughout and worthy of men tion. Dr. Allen also gave an afternoon talk to which the tdachers and pupils above the seventh grade were invited, but only a few came, much to their own loss. Friday evening a Demorest gold medal contest was held in which live young people who held silver medals, contested for a gold medal. As we were not present Friday evening, will only say tnat tno goiu meuai was awarded to Master Willie Hallock of Sparta. We would have been glad to have given more of a report of work done at convention but space forbids. A more extended report will be given at tho next meeting of tho W. C. T.

Second, the great expense of the trip and the u n reason 1 1 le prices elnrgcd for examination and treatment by tho city specialists. It is a notorious fact that chronic diseases ire so distinct from acute ones that the regular practi tioner, as a rule, wants nothing to do with them, and If satlsina yllh his Incotre, will frankly say so, hence the neces hlty of the oDcciullst: and that no shall nut himself when? those natients uncuwl bv their J'ntnilv iHtrtor mav wo in m and receive tlrst-class treatment, although unable to visit the city to secure a like quality of sklil. The fact that a city ppccialtst vlslta your county seat, and rfelves and prescribes for patients at your U-st hotel does not In the least detract from his skill, honesty, Integrity or respectability. For If a man is a gentleman at home he Is a gentleman every where, although occasionally a hungry doctor will cautlou i sl k man or woman to keep away from us; that too In face of the r fact that tho sanio sufferer lias U-eu a patient of said aoctor for months and often years, and paid him ull the money ho jf could rako an- scrape and now ilnds himself worse oif than at In-ginnlng of treatment, yet Is cautioned by this M. P. to look out for fraud and Ignorance. Common decency would, at hast, suggest silence on the part of such creatures. Does Dr. Humphrey cure everylody? No! Docs he treat every cao that goes to him? No! Most emphatically no! Itutho doeseure a greater percentage of cases accented for treatment than any spcdallsv of our acquaintance.

Dr. Humphrey's unparalleled success with theso un fortunates arises not only from the fact of the most scientific and specific medication known either In this or any other coun try, but also to the fact of the direct influence of his powerful will upon the nccullar menuvl depressions always found in such cases, by w hich he Is enabled to Infuse a part of his own energy Into their hopeless lives.
