One of our best practical farm-

how he came to change his mind
about killing birds. Tie said he
formerly took a great deal of
pleasure with his gun and dogs.
About six months after coming
to the territory he told his wife
he would go out and kill a few
quail. Jt was about 4 o'clock;
bo calling his dogs he started out
on bis own farm. He soon shot
three quail, and his wife, know-
iug that if he got thoroughly in-
terested in the pursuit of game
&Jm would be out till long after
supper time, persuaded him to
come back to the house and they
would have supper, when he
could go again. "All right."
said the farmer; *'I wilt dress
these and we'll have them for
supper." His wife remarked on
the fullness of the craws of the
birds, and on opening one it was
found packed full of chinch

IN TH« LAST TWEN-
The Missionary News.
When, In MM, Mrs. J. W. Lumbuth
went with her husband, Dr. J. W. Lum-
buth, an a missionary to China, no
one could predict the iKMstbllltles be-
fore the Church leading out of the ef-
forts of this worthy woman. Bhe com-
prehended the situation, begun teach-
ing the children, visiting and talking
to the women, until the work grew
beyond her means and strength, bhe
appealed to the godly women at home
The women of Baltimore from May,
1873. to May, 1878, sent to her neurly
11600, and the women of Nashville from
November, 1873, to April. 1878, more
than $2600, and a young lady of unques-
tioned ability and piety was ready to
go to Mrs. Lumbuth's assistance, with
the money in hand for the expenses of
one year. These women realised the
necessity for organised efforts and pe-
tltlond the General Conference of 1874
for authority to organise a missionary
society. The petition never left the
committee room. It was thought best
at the time for the Southern women to
keep at home and "be sheltered."
But the leaven was at work, the pur-
pose was fixed and, nothing daunted,
the petition wan sent to the Oeneral
Conference of 1878 and was granted.

was sent to their relief. In Braxll we

lost her life as « nurse In the late Span-
ish war. The school Is taught by her
sister, Miss Rebecca Toland, one of

who has been In the work continuous-
ly since. Our North Texas Conference
society has established a school at Ha-

willing to spend and be spent for the
cause. Mrs. Hays traveled In different
states organizing auxiliaries and con-
ference societies, Mrs. McGavook pre-
paring the way for her advance by
writing to the pastors and women
throughout the Church and sending the
literature that had been prepared by
her own pen. These women had wall-
ed long to see this day. For many years
they had resolved to organize a specific
work in the Church for sending the gos-
pel to heathen women and children,
but until now their efforts had be"n
limited. After the authority granted
there was no excuse for delay, but the
growth was alow, owing to the fear, ex-
pressed by some, of the wisdom of
such a movement and the general con-
dition of the Church, Its limited re-
sources, and the necessity for supply-
ing demands that were most urgent In
the home lands.

missionary Secretary at ine General
Conference <>f 1S78, and In no uncertain
way laid great stress on the duty of
each man and woman to send the gos-
pel to the heathen.
In one short year the Woman's For-
eign Missionary society, which held its
first anniversary at Louisville, Ky., had
organized 218 auxiliaries, with a mem-
bership of ,ri890. The total receipts re-
ported by the treasurer were $4014.27,
nearly $1 per member, the dues fixed by
the Board. The Board adopted the one
safe method—not to allow appropria-
tions to exceed probable receipts. This
has been the one safe anchor. No debt
has been Incurred, and although often
tempted by the earnest pleas of mis-
sionaries to enter as the doors were
opened, they have tearfully refused.
Why? Because every woman In cur
Church does not help.
At the close of the first quadrennlum,
in 1882. the members could estimate
with gratitude and pride the results of
their work. To the future also they
could look with Inspiring faith and
hope. They rejoiced that "God thought
of us as well as heathen women when he
called us to this work." The General
Conference of thnt year. 1882. realized
they had made no mistake in granting
the petition, pnd so expressed them-
I might tell you of the Increase year
by year. The prosperity and efficiency
was not measured by the amount of
money collected, but by the number of
new societies organized and number of
new members enrolled. The Church
was being sown down with missionary
literature, the women were reading the
leaflets and Missionary Advocate, work-
ing and, best of alt, praying for the
cause. The value of woman's work as
a co-operative agency with that of the
General Board In foreign fields became
more and more apparent. To the pas-
tors It gave regular congregations,
bringing to Sunday school and preach-
ing hundreds of women and girls who
had never dared to show their faces In
public. Christian teuching In the
schools and the social amenities used
by the representatives of the Woman's
Beard were, however, the most efficient
means that could be used for quicken-
ing and maintaining Influences that re-
sulted In the conversion of pupils and
native teachers, that opened homes. In-
creased the membership of the
Cnnrches and extended the knowledge

of immense value. In Nantslang, for
instance, mission work was begun in
186S—Just twenty years ago—and has
been kept up from year to year ever
since; but not until after the opening
of Miss Rankin's school has there ever
appeared any sign of success. Not n

Wynn, of Trinity Church, availed her-
helf of that opportunity and Is now do-
ing tine work in Mexico.
It was found that $1 per year, or 10
cents per month, was not adequate
for work pressing on us, so In addition
to this we raise our money by special
pledge given by auxiliaries making life
members at $20, honorary life members
at $100, taking scholarships at $40, sup-
porting Bible women at $60, by bequests
and devises, and, rarely, taking public
collections. This North Texas Confer-
ence society at Its last meeting made
the editor of our Woman's Department
In the Texas Christian Advocate, Mrs.
Florence E. Howell, an honorary life
member by the payment of $100. Also
two scholarships at $40 each were ta-
ken. Oak CHIT society Is supporting a
day school ut Saltlllo, Mexico, at a cost
of $100 per year.
Through the enterprise of our Board
we now have In operation the follow-
ing publications: The Woman's Mis-
sionary Advocate and the Little Work-
er. In addition to these, we have very
many Interesting books pertaining to
missions. Aside from these valuable
aids, much of the Information In regard
to the work and furtherance of mis-

than the whole church did when we
came Into existence. Missions are talk-
ed and preached until, if the money
needed was commensurate with tbo*e
ready to go, the world would soon be
converted. "The question." said Bish-
op Pierce on a certain occasion and
with thrilling effect, "is not whether
the heathen can be saved without the
gospel, but whether we can be raved
if we do not give it to them." Think
of sixty-six young women leaving all
that makes life pleasant and happy
here to go to the miserable heathen in
dirt and ignorance, to teach them the
way of salvation. It Is painful to think
that of the large membership of our
Church so few are helping In this work.
Xs it not a glorious thought that we
can have part In the great movements
that are bringing old, established king-
doms to the feet of the Bedeemer? The
people are calling for more teachers
and more light. God grant that every

thirty years to hold annually a camp

from the camp meeting alters have
gone out men to fill nearly every sta-

faithful band who are doing a splendid
work that will do the world good. These
are but some of the results of the labor
of that Immortal fourteen. Again our
