WINDHAM COUNTY llUFOKMKlt, UKaTTLEIJOKO, VT., FJflDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1905.
5 TIGNAL BiSCUl NA COMPANY ' Has--Done and is -Doing , The National Biscuit Company has brought the science of baking close to the point of perfection, practi cally revolutionizing the baking of biscuit, crackers and wafers. It makes them better than they have ever been made before; it keeps them fresh in moisture proof packages as they have never been kept before, and all this goodness it guarantees by placing a trade mark in red and white on each end of the package, so that even the toddler peeping eagerly over the counter's edge, may buy as safely as the thoughtful housewife. If every woman in the land could actually know the high quality, the. never-ending care, the infinite skill, the absolute cleanliness that is represented by every package bearing this trade mark of the National Biscuit Company, it is certain that there never would be another biscuit, cracker or wafer sold in a common paper bag. That this happy consummation may come to pass, the National Biscuit Company will Invite the ladies of this city to Join them in pleasant entertainment and thus become acquainted in a really delightful way with the most delicious baking in the world.

Windham conference of Congrega tional churches met for its sixty-fourth annual convention at Jamaica Wed nesday and Thursday, September 14, and 15. ' Weather conditions Wed nesday were rather unpropitlous, and those who came in teams had some mud to contend with, but considering that the place of meeting is somewhat remote from many of the churches, a goodly number, were present. To beex ....t thoro wflro fortv delegates Dresent as against fifty-six last year at West minster. 1 ne ranroua was nuiuiy um posed Wednesday and deposited Its passengers in time for their appoint ments both morning and evening, so that with but few slight exceptions the program was carried out as planned by the committee of arrangement. Although the conference had not met ...i.u th.. lumnlnii rhiitvh ninne 1892. the hospitality was such that one might almost think entertaining conventions had become a fixed habit. Those com ing by train were met at the station, and the teams were greeted at the church door by men to care for the horses, and ladles to take charge of the passengers. Almost the first words that reached the ears of the writer took the form of a qestion as to whether or not he had been to dinner, and as he had not they seemed very appropriate. The Congregationalists of Jamaica have recently regained possession of the basement of their church, and they cordially made a storehouse of good things of it for this occasion. The convention proper began in the attractive audience room upstairs with a praise and prayer service conducted bv Rev. A. E. Martin of West Towns hend and was followed by a thought ful and helpful sermon r- Rev. G. B. Woodman, Jr., of Wilmington. Mr. Woodman took as his text Psalms 61, 10 11, 12. "Renew a right spirit with in' me: take not thy Holy Spirit from ....u ...ith thv frpi Snirlt. and emphasized the individual need, and the need especially of the churches for this renewal or spiruuui ihi". r?r 1 i of the Sn rit. and the abiding strength and inspira tion coming from us presence, u na a good sermon.
