'its Annual Fall MeetliiK Held at Al- jjonu—A Very Successful Session. The presbytery of Fort Dodge and the Women's Missionary society of the fjsame presbytery held their fall meet- Ing with the Algona and Irvington 'resbyterian churches Sept. 12 to 14, ind it was conceded to be in every re- Aspect a success, not only because of the large number of delegates present, but ; because of the spirit of harmony and I good will which prevailed during all the meetings. From the very commencement the tone which prevailed during every session was in accord with the able sermon preached by Rev. J. E. Groendyke of Carroll, who set forth the importance of magnifying the work of Christ as set forth in the cross. After the sermon and the roll call presbytery was constituted by Rev. W. M. Evans of Estherville, and the Revs. L. C. Gray and J. B, Clapp as clerks, which closed the opening services. On Wednesday the business of presbytery was entered upon and carried forward with energy and thoroughness, while the ladies of the missionary society, with the devotion which ever animates the gentler sex in all their efforts to better humanity, laid plans for advanced work in our beloved land and among those who are yet without the blessings of a Christian civilization. During the popular meeting held in the Presbyterian church on Wednes- day evening, which was ably presided over by Rev. Dr. Greene of Fort Dodge, the spirit of the meetings held by the ladies in the Baptist church was manifest. The reports submitted by Mrs. W. O. Tilton of Bpone and Miss Wells of Fort Dodge evidenced an excellent showing of what women can do when aet before her is a noble object. Following the reports an excellent address was given by Dr. Purmort of Waterloo upon the outlook in Iowa, and an equally interesting address by Miss Welles of Chicago on Mormonism, also on the work in foreign lands. One feature of the public exercises was the excellent music given by the choir under the leadership of Mr. R. Vincent and Miss Peterson. Another feature of this meeting of presbytery was the excellent collation prepared at the armory for delegates and friends by the ladies of the Algona and Irvington churches, while another feature of this pleasant meeting of presbytery was the cordial hospitality given the delegates by many of the citizens of Algona, for which sincere thanks are returned, also to the members and pastor of the Baptist church for the privilege of holding the sessions of the ladies' society in their church home. To say that the presbytery of Fort Dodge and the women's missionary society will long remember their pleasant visit to Algona i r only to say what was unanimously b'kp' ised by the delegates as they turn< d to their homes, The.Wood wards to-night.
