G. II. Kennedy, Pastor of the AJtfona M. E. Church, for the following interesting report of the District Conference held iti Algotta hist week; The Algona District Conference of the M. 13. church closed last Thursday noon, one of the most successful sessions it has ever held. The visiting ministers and laymen expressed themselves as being greatly pleased with their reception arid entertainment. They all<>ote that Algona Methodists know how to entertain and do it. The number of persons in attendance upon the conference was about fifty. Mr. Filkins, of Eagle Grove, was licensed as a local preacher. The reports from the pastors were nearly all of a very encouraging order, revivals being already under way on many charges. The prospect of a long cold winter in hard times did not in the least dampen the enthusiasm of the pastors and their official helpers. Plans are being made for missionary rallies on all the charges by neighboring ministers. The church does not propose to desert the men she has sent to the frontiers. The next session of the conference will be held next spring in May or June at Emmetsburg, where our Brother Bagnell and his people will be the entertainers. For those who cannot be present at the exercises, we will mention the literary program which was rendered in addition to the regular business of the Conference. On Tuesday evening the first service of the Conference was held. Mr. Gardner Cowles in a 'cordial and hearty manner bid the visitor welcome in behalf of the laity of the church. Mr. Cowles is one of the few men who can make a success of business and of public speaking also, Bey. dr. H. Kennedy, the pastor heartily endorsed the welcome given by Mr. Cowles. Bev. J. W. Southwell, of Eagle Grove, responded to the welcome on behalf of the Conference and from the happy expression on his face all felt that he at least was § lad to be present. Presiding Elder lack was to have seconded Bev. Southwell's address but he waived his privilege that he might entroduce Dr< W. F. King, President of the Cornell College. Af ter a few felicitious words of introduction Dr. King occupied an hour in a scholarly presentation of the value and need or education. No one could help coming to the same conclusion with the President because his argument was clear and convincing. On Wednesday forenoon three important papers^were,. read, and, afterwards- discussed,, by ,.the Conference. .'•Equal Lay arid Ministerial Bepreseh- tation in the General Conference" was argued for by Bobert Bagnell. There seemed to be a general sentiment in favor of arousing a deep interest in the leading lay, members in church legislation. "Th'e' Philosophy of Theism" by Bev. A. W. Luce was a well digested statement of 'the great reasons for man's belief in God. "Civic Christianity" by Bev. C. A. Devitt was a strong plea for Christian citizens and the Christian spirit in legislation and government. We greatly wish to see Mr. Devitt's paper printed as it contained much which good men ought to think upon. In the afternoon Bev. J. 0. Harvey spoke upon the 'always important question of "The Belative Claims of Study and Pastoral Visitation." He wa» followed by Bev. I. A. Bartholomew, who gave a short sketch of the Jesuits. "The Use and Abuse of Church Music" was felicitously treated by Bev. D. A. McBurney, but the problem "How to manage a .church choir" is still a perplexing mystery. The use'ottbeblackboard for illustrating in Sunday School and young people's meeting's was well shown by Bev, C. H. Hawn. The afternoon session was closed with a short address by Dr. King on the advantages which Cornell College offers to young people seeking the best cgllege education. The strength and harmony and zeal of the faculty, and-tbe equipments for scien- tific'ana literary research are of such a_B order'as to put Cornell in the' front rank among Iowa colleges, Wednesday evening exercises wer§ attended by, such a large audience that detailed mention of tbe addresses is' unnecessary. No one listened to tbe presenta* tion of tbe,claims and needs of tbe great benevolent societies'of 'Method/ is.m witbottt .wondering at the magnitude 0* tbe work yet to be done^and desire to. bejn to do it.

By trading in Wesley you can always depend on getting the best goods for the least money. We are Offering a THE WONDERFUL MISS DOX. Miss Virginia Dox, a representative of the Congregational Education Society, occupied the Congregational pulpit Sunday morning and evening. At the morning service she described her experience as a teacher id a town in New Mexico, and in the evening she told the story of three years spent by her as a teacher in a Mormon town in Idaho. The people of the two places were of widely differing characteristics,. but Miss Dox found the way to success in both places. In both the densest ignorance prevailed, and both were without knowledge of the Christian faith. The Mexicans she found cuitsed by heathenism and superstition. She risked her life and came near losing it in going among them, and she was at an especial disadvantage in not knowing a word of the Spanish language there spoken. Her descriptions of life- in the mud village on the mountains was intensely interesting, but not more so {than were her narrations of life among the- Mormons and cowboys of the Idaho-village. Miss Dox was won?- derfully successful in the latter place, and her experience has proved the- need of and the demand for the work which is .being done -by the society which she so well represents. Between thirty and forty dollars were raised for the society. Algona was honored with the first appointment made in Iowa by this gifted lady. Miss Dox came here di~ recjtly from Boston, the headquarters of he» society, and will visit other towns in the state. It is the event of a lifetime to listen to her thrilling story. Opinions on Money and Populism. Des Moines Leader: In the east the populist party never had a foothold. It contain*) in its ranks not one man whose name will ever be known in history as a prominent American statesman. Its ideas are wild and only take hold with'tenacity upon ignorant minds or such unfortunates as are supposed to have wheels in their head. Fiatism is its central and fundamental doe- trine, in fact is the nucleus of the party. That outrageously absurd and 'idiotic doctrine can never win among intelligent people. Unfortunate per-, sons and persons in hard luck may for a. .time be infatuafcedpwith „ the notion that wealth can 1 be pToduced.fromjiQth- "ing.ahil' placid-sin their ^h4nds, f but- jf they are capable" o|- / "s'ober*'~thoughty.a .little calm reflection convirices'phemVof the fallacy of such teachings' and' the vanity of such hopes. For this reason the populist party only flashes up to' soon die out in the various spots of the country. i Des Moines News, Ind. : As to Iowa, there is no doubt left as to its attitude on the silver q uestion , • Our farmers do not want to take pay for their cattle, bogs, corn, wheat, oats, butter, etc., in dollars coined from fifty cents worth of silver, Our workingmen do not want their wa ! ges paid in silver dollars freely coined, i Those who are almost hopelessly in debt may desire silver coinage in "order to lighten the burden; but those who depend on the progress of business and the development of industry for '(prosperity do not want conditions unsettled by opening the mints for coinage into dollars of silver bullion worth, only fifty cents in the markets of the vporld. This will be unpalatable to many earnest and worthy men, but the logic of events has decided, the day against them. _ 05ASB & SANBQBN QQITEE, Walker Bros, have the Chase & Sanborn Coffee agen,oy.
