The funeral of the late Mrs. Stanford was held from the II. 11 chorchthie af ternoon. s Public improvements are a nice thing if the city could afford them. And a doe residence would be appreciated if the individual could afford it. There are few taxpayers in Madison idio feel "flush" at this time, and the iijea of bonding the city and thereby add fo taxation does not meet with much fa J9T. The advocates of bonding the city for 185,000, will be on hand to a man to vote for tbe measure next Tuesday.

J. E. Turner, our butter andeggaship per took his departure for his home in Rockford, 111., this morning, leaving his business in charge of Mr. A. A. Abbott for the winter. During his summer stay here Mr. Turner has bought and ship ped to eastern markets, 188,080 dozen of eggs at a cost of $19,550.01 and 94,706 pounds of butter at a cost of $12,445.41. This total of nearly $32,000 has been a source of revenue to our farmers and businees men during a season of the year between the maturing of crope, when much needed, and the encourage ment given to the industry by Mr. Turner's successful business methods is duly appreciated by a large constituency* In regard to his resignation tendered to the city councillast evening, Alder man O. O. Murray said to a Daily Leader reporter: "I do not think I am eligible for the position under Chapter 37, Article 4, Section 5, laws of 1890, my business partner, C. J. Porter, having re cently been appointed city attorney, and qualified. There might something come up in connection with the bond election that would complicate matters if I were a member of the council, and I think it best to be on the safe side. I do not think' there is any likelihood at the bonds carrying, but they might.1* Mr. Murray is a competent alderman, and his constituents in the Second ward will regret his determination to resign. The vacancy must be tilled by election. The oounty commissioners have taken the following action in regard to the dicision of Judge Aikens concerning the abatement of the Chautauqua tax: "In the matter of taxation of the Lake Madi son Chautauqua association, the states attorney was instructed to make a motion for a new trial and if denied ap peal the case to the supreme court, from the decision of the circuit court holding that its property is not liable to tax ation." This is a case in which it would seem the commissioners ought to be more lenient, and not attempt to force taxation upon the Chautauqua associ ation's property at all hazard. Of course it is well understood that the purposes of the Chautauqua association not speculative. The decision of Judge Aikens makes leased lots taxable which gives the county a greatly in creased income from the Chautauqua grounds over farm land. The mission of the Chautanqua accociation is religious, education 1 and scientific instruction, without profit, and the property necesary for its purposes ought to be ex empt from taxation.

Williams, of Mitchell, read the scripture lesson and Rev. H. P. William son led in prayer. Mrs. J. Y. Ewart, corresponding secretary for the Woman's Board of South Dakota, read her report, which was more than pleasing and in structive. She drew a beautiful parallel between the claims of the Israelites to take possession of Canaan and our duty co take possession of South Dakota for Christ. Her report showed that the woman's societies had 33 more members this ear than last and that $159 more money had been raised by them. Much of their money goes tobuiiding chuches. The total membership was 689, and con tributions $588*17, Central Dakota Pres bytery equaling tbe other three com bined. Mrs. J, H. Pierson, of the Woman's Executive committee of New York, then stirred every heart in the audience in giving an account of the work done by their 122 missionaries in south and west, 32 of whom were in Utah, 12 among the Freed men and the rest among the Indians and Mexicans. Women's work is an educating one, and the heathen in this country moat be ..reached through the children. Women have a work in the church as well as men attfi fcbey should do their duty. FRIDAY MORNING.' Devotional meeting at 8:30 was led by Rev. Geo. Williams, of Mitchell, a good attendance and deep spiritual feeling manifested. At 9 a. m. the regular work of the Snyod begun with Moderator D. M. Butt, presiding. The place of absentees on the various standing committees were filled by tbe appointment of members present, and the roll call was then made. The reason given for tardiness in reach ing the Synod were quite amusing, many resolving themselves into the fact thet Synod met before the trains arrived. An invitation from President Beadle to visit the Normal school was tendered and accepted. Rev. J. S. Sherrill, of Minneapolis, edi tor of the "Presbyterian Northwest," ad dressed the body a few minutes on tbe "Religious Press," setting forth the aim and work of his paper in aid of the cause. A vote of thanks and endorse ment was moved which gave rise to spirited criticism of the paper's attitude towards home missionaries and the "higher criticism," which Mr. Sherrill ably met and explained away. The vote passed. Rev. Dr. Carson, ay nodical missionary then mad? bis report on tbe year's work in the field, which brought forth ap plause at the close. The report shows that the Home Mission work under the Board began in 1872 in Dakota, when one church was organized. Then five years followed without mission work. In 1878 the work was again taken up with two missionaries, and three churches established. During the de cade of 1880 to 1890, the number of mis sionaries increased from 7 to 63 tha churches from 10 with 149 members, to 121 churches and 4,440 members from two houses of worship and no manse, to 99 houses of worship and 20 manses from no school property, to an academy and a college with four buildings and a property worth at least $30,000 and frqp from all debt. The lack of growth dur ing the past two years has been due to i droughts and crop failure and the shrink V V jr- ... -.*r v.- -. V-' j' •."-.-."A j"\ S V. -j .- j., age of popilation. The work of the cur rent year has been progressive. Four new churches have been established, eight mort have been supplied with pas tors that last year two have become seir-auppcrting—Woonsocket and Brook ings. Th» outlook for the ooming year is very encouraging. Rev. A. Work read the *eport of the committer of Home Missions, covering much the same ground za that gone over by the Bynodical missionary. His report fruu the five Presbyteries shows 83 ministers in 1893 as against 78 in 1892, but 13 net in effective service. Of the 78 reported i n 1892, seventeen were not in effective service, thus showing again of nine wortera. The field and the Board have contrib uted about 865,000 for the work of the past year. We have gained one organ ized church, seven ruling elders, twelve deacons and 877 members. The whole number of additions during the year has been 735 members. The increase of Sab bath school attendance has been about 700. Our church membership in the Synod is about 5,000. The self-support ing churches in the Synod are: Huron, Aberdeen, Woonsocket, Brookings, and First German church of Turner oounty The Synod has drawn from the board of Home Missions about $28,000, and has contributed to the Board $3,001. Last year we gave nearly $600 more to For eign Missions than to Home this year we gave nearly $1,500 more to Home than Foreign Missions. The 17 Indian churches are largely responsible for this change. Twenty-nine of our 122 churches gave nothing to this cause last year. Some of our churches need spiritual stirring up. Rev. E. Nugent gave a favorable ac count of the mission work in the Black Hills country. Dr. H. P. Williamson, the old Sioux Indian missionary, gave a most interest ing account of tbe work amocg the In dians. What they needed most uow was independence, association with the whites to cultivate this.. They are veryv imitative, but conservative. Have taken up the Christian Endeavor work the past year. The raising of a committee to seoure an evangelist and his support for this Synod provoked an animated discussion, but the resolution prevailed and the committee ordered. Following Mrs. Pierson's impressive paper, Mrs. Geo. Tuttle sang a beautiful solo, and Dr. W. C. Roberts, secretary of the Board of Home Missions, New York, was introduced. The Doctor is a learn ed, eloquent, sturdy Welshman of hu morous vein and forcible address. He was here at the birth of the Dakota Synod nine years ago and spoke in com plimentary terms of its growth. He ex pressed the sympathy of the board with the home missionaries in their work and regretted that it could not always do better by them. Twelve years ago the receipts of the board were $3,625, six years after $6000, and last year, $1,000, 000, and yet the churches give little more now to this board than they did ten years ago. Of this increase, the Woman's Board furnish over $300,000 the greater portion of the balance com ing from iddividual gifts and legacies, running as high as $25,000. Children should be systematically trained to give. The board sometimes gets greatly be hind, but New York bankers loan them all they want, at 6 per cent even in these hard financial times. The bbard has borrowed as high as $325,000 from one bank at the regular rate, which showed the confidence moneyed men had in the great Presbyterian church. Dr. Roberts, address was a powerful appeal for more faith, prayer and sup port, The board sustains nearly 1700 missionaries in the field. A vote of thanks was tendered the speakers of the eveniDg and also the banker of New York who so valiantly stands by the church. TENTH XNNUAL to see MBEthfG of the Women's Missionary, society for South Dakota met in the M. E. church this forenoon and the devotional meet ing was led by Miss McCauley of Bridge water. Mrs. D. W. Stiver of Huron was elected temporary secietary. Welcome was warmly extended in an ad dress by Mrs. S. M. Jenke, responded to by Mrs. Wight of Aberdeen. Greetings from fraternal societies were extended by Mrs. W. E. Daniels on behalf of the Methodists and Mw. C. J. Button on be half of the Baptist people. Mesdames Ewart and Cameron then rendered a duett with excellent effect and tha Pres bv ternl reports were then read. These showed a very flattering coudition of the work, growth and contributions Of the societies throughout the state and a great advance has been made during the punt year. Mrs. Pierson addressed the meeting on "The Work of Presbyterian Women for Home Missions" which is very Jhigbly commended for its earnestness and in sight into the needs of the work sod what women can do for it. Miss Chase, of Parker, representing the Y. P. 8. E. societies of the state read a most instructive paper on the relation of these societies to Mission work. Miss Cliase goes to Mr. Moody's training school shortly, for two years and then go$j abroad as a missionary. This afternoon the society listened to tbe annual address by Mrs. J. S.Oliver,of Huron, a very able presentation of the oondition of the women's mission work anfwas followed by Miss Agnse Carey, A v }.• them. i *OHX MTOVF.M AKI) It **4.
