Nlss Loftan's Address.
Miss Beulnh Logan, a native of the
Microncsian islands and a missionary
of tho Congregational ohurch in that
far away country, addressed a largo
and interested audience at tho Congre
gational church in this city Sunday
evening. Her address consisted of
tho simple, unadorned story of the life
and work of her dead father and moth
er among tho natives of thoso email
islands of the Pacific, as well as her
own experience in the same work.
Miss Logan's own experiences would
make an interesting story if placed in
book form. Her father and mother
woro missionaries in tho islands of tho
Pacific, and there she accompaniod
them when but two weeks old. At an
early ago sho was sent to America to
bo educated and lit herself for a lifo
of missionary work When her father
died alio pleaded to bo sent to tho aid
mothor. From that time on her lifo
was filled with a sorios of interesting
and soul harrowing experiences. Her
mothor, broken in health, sailed for
America to secure tho medical treat
montsho needed. Her daughter never
saw her again, and it was nearly a year
and a half before she learned of her
mother's death shortly after her urriv
al in this .'country. Miss Logan kept
up tho work begun by her parents,
and ubout seven yeurs ago sho was one
of the victims of a shipwreck that
cumo near resulting fatally for her.
As a result of tho wreck and conse
quent exposure sho became aillictnd
with spiuul trouble, and after several
months iu the islands without medical
treatment sho was taken to a hospital
iu Sydney, Australia, whore sho re
mained for over two years, and for tho
first fow months of her conflnomnnt
sho was practically unconscious all of
of her mothor, who wasalono in a land tho time. When sho finally recovered
pooplo with savages. Tho Congrega- J snjllciently to bo ablo to travel sho
(Atonal board of foreign missions iiuul camo to America to make an appeal
ly acceded to her wishes, and at tho for tho benightod pooplo among whom
ngo of 18 sho was bent to join her sho had cust her lot.
Bo it said to tho credit of tho pooplo
of Red Cloud, Miss Logan's appeal did
not go unheodod. Tho contributions
to tho foreign missionary fund at tho
Congregational church in tiiis city lust
Sunday amounted to over ?G7, tho larg
est amount secured iu any city in
Nebraska, Plymouth church in Lin
coln being a oloso second.
