. In this there were to have been
five speakers, but owing to the fact
that L. C. Oberlies was called away
he was not present to participate in
his part of the discourse. The par

This was taken care of by some other
speakers to some extent. Mrs. Claud

view of the world, and through the

Missionary Society." telling how the
women are carrvinc the Gospel to
the world through their organized
efforts in this direction.
C. E. Whitaker, of this city, spoke
on the subject. "In the Church" and
made one of the best addresses of the
fonvention thus far. Ill fact he
brought the laboring world in con
tact with the church and offered so
lutions ns to how the church might
best get in touch with. that essential
elemen of he world's society. With
the closing of his address which was
well received, the convention ad
journed until the evening.
The Evening Session
The evening program was begun
with a devotional period, conducted

The first session of the Second Pis

with the greatest of interest. The

ments were serve d. This served it
purpose well and everybody enjoyed
themselves to the utmost, throwing
off for the time being the cloak of
formal stillness and getting right in
to the spirit of the occasion. Ilefore
the ir.il of the eiening everyone felt
that he was an old time friend of
everyone else present which will lie

ing of a devotional character and
having for its thought "The, Posy
Pawn" inspired from th scriptural
fpiovation. "Weeping may endure for
a night, but joy comet h in the morn
ing." The deep underlying idea the
meeting expressed was tlie coming
of better things, and the signs of the
times indicate that we may look for
a real awakening of Christianity,
wherein much of tlie formality of
present day living will be replaced
by real Christian living.
Puring the time of holding of the
morning session, there were four dif
ferent groups of discussions pertain
ing to the four leading activities of
the church, they being The Christian
Woman's Hoard of Missions, led by
