MEETING OF THE
BAND OF HERCY
Meeting at the Methodist Church
Monday Was Most
The Mercy Hand of the Humane
society met Monday afternoon in
the M. K. church; coming up the
street in national colors, a gay
procession of youthful workers
for kindness and good will; to
perfect their organization by
electing a vice president, treasur
er ami secretary. As there were
only about thirty children present,
many of the members being away
on vacation with their relatives,
i inong whom is Miss Nora Living
ston, who was elected president at
a former meeting, it was thought
bet-t to postpone the election to a
future, meeting and to proceed
with the program, which was
opened by scriptural reading by
Mrs. H. C Kerr, prayer by Mrs. C.
F. Wescott and a statement of the
object of the band Kindness to
all dumb animals, peace and good
will to all the world and no more
war among the nations. Then
the children, led by Uncle Sam and
the Ooddess of Liberty, which was
bedecked in national colors, sang
"America," accompanied on the
f rgnn by Miss Dovey. Master
Mason Wescott gave the "Horse's
Prayer," in place of what they
would pray if they could speak
our language. The pony stood at
the church door, but would not
liter the church, presumably be
cause so many church-goers had
xvlupped and abused their race.
Then Mrs. Knee asked the chil
dren some questions, to which
I hey responded in rotat ion. Mrs.
C. K. Wescott recited a very
beautiful poem on the good time,
coming when war should be no
more. Miss Douglass gave a
reading in her usual excellent
manner. Mrs. Vanderrook read
her "Vision of Mercy" and con
gratulated the children that they
had so early in life put on the
harness to pull the car of Prog
ress ami help do the xvorld's work
for the uplift of society.
"After We Older Ones Have
Cone on Into the Oreat, Reyond,"
the subject of (he very eloquent
ami forceful speech of Attorney
Haw Is, was the crowning at trac
tion of the entertainment. He
spoke briefly of the "ancient,
days" when men fought for pleas
ure, ami gradually, as civilization
advanced, they fought for right
and justice, until now all nations
are beginning to abhor bloodshed
a, id the sacrifice of life and
treasure, and he made a prophesy
that "in fen years more xvar would
he eliminated from all civilized
nations; thai through Hie great
discovery of electrical poxver,
mankind and nations are becom
ing next, door neighbors, ami that
we would be enabled to satis
factorily adjust all dillicutlies
amicably by aribl rr-i ion."
Taken all together the after
noon xxas a great success, for al
though the program was more an
adult one, the meetings which will
follow the entertainment will be
mostly provided by the children,
xvith the inolive for training them
for the greater xvork axvaiting for
them to do, when I hey xxill fake
up the xvork for the xvorld's good
which we older ones have coni-
! inenced. but have not the years to
finish, and will never be com
pleted until Jesus comes again to
give us nexv lessons of great
peace and joy to all the world.

The week was cool and unusually
dry; only a few light an.l w!duIy scat
tered showers occurred. In many lo
calities over the western and south
ern counties no rain fell during the
week, and in those sections the
drought is still serious. In the north
eastern district the rainfall was more
copious, and practically all crops are
in excellent condition, but consider
able small grain in shock has been .
damaged by the continuous wet weath-1
er during the past five weeks. In
other sections of the state corn on
light and rolling ground Is drying very'
rapidly and some of it is already be
ing cut. Reports made on Aug. 25 by
the correspondents of this service
show that the average condition of
corn was 75 per cent, or a gain of six
points since Aug. 1. With normal
weather conditions about 65 per cent
of the crop will be safe from' frost
on Sept. 25; 90 per cent on Sept. 30,
and practically all of it by Oct. 10.
The avrrago condition of late pota
toes on Aug. 25 was 64 per cent, or
an Improvement of twenty points
since Aug. 1. In many localities in
western and southern counties farm
ers are feeding their stock on green
corn on account of no pasturage.
Much more than the usual amount of
corn will be cut and saved as a sub
stitute for hay. Fall plowing Is pro
gressing in Reel ions where sufficient
rain has fallen to soften the trrnnnd
In other sections that work has been '
suspended. Apples, plums, peaches,
and grapes are larger than usual, j
