Humbly, Andrew J. Rhodes. o- Elk City, Nov. 10, 190G. Dear Bro.

Parmiter: I am now in Oklahoma for two meetings, one at Kiowa, which will continue until the fourth Lord's day. go then to Pixler for the first and second Lord's days in December. If others desire my services while I am in Oklahoma they will please adhered with remarkable steadfastness. Nov. 17, 1859, she was married to Alfred Ellmore, then of the same town.

To this union were born seven children four boys and three girls three of which Austin, Olive and Anna have preccetled their mother to the spirit world. Her life was one of sacrifice from tender age to death. Living much of her time without the direct aid of a husband, for over a third of a century she cared for and reared the family under varied and adverse circumstances, and seldom, if ever at all, faltered or complained of her lot. During all these years of hardship her husband was constantly "in the field" sowing the "good seed of the kingdom." She lived in, Clinton County, till Oct. 1892, when with the family save Austin and Olive, who had gone to their reward she moved to Covington, where she lived till death.

Her last illness may date from last though a few days over two weeks before death she was up and around. The last hours found her conscious and hopefulher hopes growing stronger as her body grew weaker. The end came peacefully at 2 a. Nov. 5, 1906.

A good woman is gone! She Avas a. stay for the family, a light unhidden in the churchy a helping hand to her neighbors, and respected and loved by all who knew her. I can pay to her no greater tribute than to say, she lived and died a Christian. 3 Tuesday afternoon, "Nov. 6, the writer; spoke a short while from first fourth chapter, them in another meeting.

I am at home for a few days and go to Hewins, next Faithfully, H. R. SlQNOE. 0 Nov. 15, 1906.

Bros. Parmiter and Moore: My meeting at Utica is a tiling of the past. We continued twelve days with one' confession and baptism. The interest grew from the first to the close, yet the meeting was hindered by political speakings in the same place where we were holding meeting. The brethren were not satisfied with what they got out of me in this meeting, so they decided to have me return in the spring for another meeting.

I found some true and tried brethren and sisters at both Cyrus and Utica. The brethren at Cyrus will have me hold them another meeting next year. After leaving Utica I went home for a few days rest, and visited the congregation at Eaton which I helped to establish in Anist and found them in good condition and almost ready to begin the building of their new house of worship. I am at this writing in a meeting at Neola, Kans. I go from here to Maple City, Kans.

Brotherly, A. M. Woods. At P. C.

Office, 11-20-06. Dear Readers of P. C. -Please don't infer because I am hanging around the P. C.

office so much of late I am seeking promotion either for. the "publishers desk" or the. "editorial chair. To much work there for any common man or preacher either. I am so much attached to Bros.

Parmiter and Moore it is hard for me to keep away from the 'office. I only intended' to report three of the happiest weeks of my life spent in meetings. One week at Bethel. This is a strong congregation doing a grand work for the Lord. Bros.

Hawes and McCann are the elders. Men of age and experience: Bro. H. E. Moore preaches for them monthly.

He is highly esteemed by all the church. There is a young preacher with them they tell me of much promise. I am sorry I did not get better acquainted with him. One week at Superior. This is a young congregation but strong in the "faith." Bro.

Olm-stead, one of God's noblemen, is preacher, teacher and pastor (elder) of the congregation all seemed to revere him very much. The rest of the week I spent at Richland. This is an old as well as" strong congregation. Bro. J.

E. Cain has been their preacher for nineteen years, yet some say regular preaching will kill any congregation. It don't kill Richland for I have not found a more lively one in all my travels. I promised all those congregations to visit them in the future. I shall surely do so if the Lord permits, for I am a stronger and I trust a better man by visiting those sanlts of God.

I enjoyed every comfort of life as well as a very liberal remuneration, hence I want to say to Bro. D. W. Summer of Parsons, Kansas, since he seems to be so much interested in his family support (which is all right) if he will follow me around next year and do as I do never name money to the saints only preach Christ, love the brethren wholeheartedly, I will guarantee a good support to his family. Affection telv, P.

W. Adams. We can copy after Christ, but not after men. after which the, body was laid away in the Mt. address me at Busch, Okla.

Your Bro. in Christ, O. E. Phillips. Braman, 0.

Nov. 14, 1906. Our meeting closed the 11th of November after three weeks of as plain Gospel preaching as we ever heard. Bro. Smith shuns not to declare the whole counsel of God regardless of what people may think of it.

Visible results of the meeting three baptisms and three took membership besides the brethren greatly strengthened and encouraged. Yours in hope, Wm. Ore. Moriarty, N. 11-13-06.

Dear Bro. Homer and I are batching in a 10x12 shack that belongs to a B. P. boy. Having some difficulty in getting lumber to build.

Have about half enough. Think I will get enough this week. I preached at Estancia last Lord's day morning and evening. Had a good hearing. Some good, faithful brethren there.

They are saving up their contribution to build them a house. Brotherly, D. T. Beoadus. Dear Bro.

Parmiter: I began a meeting here at Center Valley, near Waverly, on Tuesday night, the 13th. Have preached three times. One to be baptized today. Will remain here about two weeks. Herbert Wilker-son, my little singing boy, has been with me a month, leading the song practice for me, and he has done the work in a satisfactory' way.

He will certainly be a great worker in the Master's kingdom. I predict a great future for him." My next meeting will be at Cedarvale, Kan. J. W. Smith.

Winfield, Nov. 15, 1906. Bro. Pa rmiter Just arrived at home from Plevna, where we closed a two weeks' meeting for the church with two additions by obedience. Our audiences were not large at any time but were attentive.

The church has had much to contend with in the past and a great deal of prejudice still exists, but I think it will be gradually overcome. They have had some of our ablest preachers to labor with them and hold them all in high esteem. Several preachers wrere in attendance all or part of the time. Bros. A.

H. Brown, M. A. Draper, W. II.

Goodwin and H. B. Ungels. I was pleased to meet these brethren again as 8 or 9 years had passed since we last met. The brethren are at peace and all seem to be doing their duty.

promised to return next October and assist Hope cemetery near the homo. W. F. Cline. Bismark, Ills.

1 Henry C. Whaley was born Feb. 11, 1830, near Palmyra, Marion Mo. died Nov. 2, 1906, at the home of Bro.

John Turner, near Haie, to which place he had been removed only a few days previous, because of their own home near by, being consumed by fire, thus making a double burden of misfortune and sor-; row upon the bereaved family. The deceased was the second of seven children, only two of whom survive him. He obeyed the gospel when about the age of thirty, and by his life and conduct plainly manifested that he was earnestly endeavoring to follow the meek and lowly Nazarene. On Oct. second, 1877, he was married to Miss Mary F.

Sallee, who with their two children, Mary C. and Wm. survive turn? and mourn, "not as those who have no hope" hut because of' the loss of his companionship, and fatherly love and counsel. He spent most of his earth life in Marion Mo. Having purchased a farm near Hale, to which place he moved with family in NovJ 1904, he indentified himself with the church of Christ soon after coming to Hale, and endeared himself to the brethren and neighbors by his upright walk and Godly conversation during his brief association with them.

His last illness extended through a period of some ten months during -which time he bore his suffering with Christian fortitude and hope. In Christian hope and love, H. W. Setti.tcs..
